So this morning, like almost every morning, I’m sitting at the computer about to get to work writing. Choices, choices: I’ve got a couple of science-fantasy novels in progress as well as a new article about the ancient Winged Disk symbol emphasised in 2015’s crop circles. But I’ve been neglecting my fiction work so I type “fiction workshop” into the search box for some inspiration.
The first site on the list of results is Literary Fiction Workshop with free instruction by author William H Coles – something that fits into my budget and is immediately accessible, so I google Coles and land on his Wiki page, where I choose a short story from the bibliograph so I can sample his writing before submitting any of my own to him.
Googling coles “the gift” pdf I land on a page offering a number of stories to read or listen to. I scroll down and stop at “The Indelible Myth.” I scarcely notice the small illustration accompanying the link until I open the page and am greeted with a much larger version of it:
It takes a few seconds to dawn on me: it’s the image of the bird again, both my blue jay friend and the winged disk, just like at Hampton Lucy, just like I found my jay friend on the grass. And someone is putting it on paper.
Synchronicity again: pointed and clear. Just like Chomsky and Chualar and Wilde Thompson and all the others I’ve shared here at IIC, this one flew straight at me this morning by virtue of seemingly random choices made on the fly. Of countless possible searches, the “random” clicks I made this morning led straight to an image resonant with the winged disk of ancient myth (resonant even with the title of the story I clicked: The Indelible Myth), as well as the blue jay friend I lost: the two things foremost in my mind these days.
For now let me not leave you high and dry. The 2015 circles used the methods they described in 2014 to co-create multiple magnificent images of the winged disk, a symbol that originated many thousands of years ago and which was depicted with great reverence all around the world. What was being described 5000 years ago, and what does it mean today that the winged disk and other ancient symbols are coming through via extreme synchronicity in 2015? Why are crop circles drawing our attention precisely to the most ancient written histories of the mysterious high civilisations of the ancient Near East?
