Predictive programming and ritual stagecraft
The Batman movie shooting synchronicity
“The horrific shooting at the screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado late last night bears eerie similarities to a scene in the 1986 comic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. In the comic, a crazed, gun-toting loner walks into a movie theater and begins shooting it up, killing three in the process. The passage concludes with the media blaming Batman for inspiring the shooting, though he is not involved in the incident at all.
“The 1986 comic, written and drawn by Frank Miller, was a key inspiration for the Chris Nolan Batman films. It helped to reimagine the character away from his Saturday morning cartoon image and into a dark, grim avenger. The point of this particular scene in the comic was to show just how far Gotham has fallen since Batman had retired.
Was the shooter imitating this scene from the comic? Maybe, although in the scene the shooter is portrayed as inspired by his disgust at pornography and heavy metal music.”

To those who will dismiss the link between the preceding comic and the Colorado shooting as a “mere coincidence,” permit me to paraphrase Police Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) in the Batman movie now showing in theaters: “You’re a detective now. For you there are no more coincidences.”
In magic, the highest ritual imprinting of the Group Mind is accompanied by blood sacrifice.
And of course the bat has not traditionally been associated with goodness, but rather the opposite, from the bat of the “Dracula” mythos, to the masonic bat caves of New Mexico, the Bat Towers of Florida and Texas, and Die Fledermaus
. But in America, where heads-is-tails and sinners are saints, the ominous bat image has been reversed and transformed into a crime fighter.
Within 24 hours of the shootings, when the investigation should begin in earnest, the Washington Post
(online July 20, 6:47 p.m
.) has closed the case by issuing the familiar lone-nut declaration: “The only near-certainty is that the gunman (James Holmes) acted alone and not as part of a terrorist group or other conspiracy.” A similar semi-omniscient statement was issued by the establishment media in 1977 in the immediate aftermath of the apprehension of “lone nut” David Berkowitz as the “Son of Sam.” Years later this “near certainty” was deflated when it was revealed that Berkowitz had not acted alone. There were other conspirators and another shooter. This fits an observable pattern, as in cases such as the assassinations of President Kennedy, his brother Bobby and Martin Luther King. (Recall that Gary Oldman portrayed “lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald in the movie “JFK” and Dracula in Coppola’s version of the classic film).
Truth is frozen by the Cryptocracy in the immediate aftermath of certain types of murders, and then slowly thawed over a lengthy period of time, when it is decided to further process the public by revealing what had been withheld for so many years by their trusted authorities in the press and among the police. In stagecraft, timing is everything, and what we may be witnessing is what Antonin Artaud termed “a type of civic magic.”
A question: they’ve got Holmes. Where’s Watson?
The new Batman movie itself does not contain any detectable Cryptocracy symbolism (at least to these eyes), save for the Batman himself –he is of course the physical image of pure darkness and at the end of the movie an ominous statue of Batman is unveiled that conveys this darkness. What the movie does exhibit is a number of initiatory, reality-is-not-what it-seems reversals: prisoners who set up their own rendition by the CIA; Catwoman’s use of a fugitive’s cell phone to launch a police assault; the assumed identity of the child who climbed out of the prison turns out to be another person entirely.
Movie spoiler: Bruce Wayne (Wayne is heavy with gender-bending twilight language connotations: John Wayne Gacy the homosexual killer of boys; Wayne County, the stage name of a drummer in an early transvestite band, and the physical place in New York where Mormonism and the seance-religion of Spiritualism were born; ), at the end of the Batman movie, ends up in Florence, Italy, one-time headquarters of the Cryptocracy when it began to take power over the Catholic Church during the Renaissance. Wayne’s British (Intelligence) factotum/handler, “Alfred” (Michael Caine) is the one who lures him to Florence.
In 1999, nineteen miles southwest of Aurora, during the orgy of bombing violence which the U.S. and NATO unleashed on the civilian population of Serbia and its ancient Christian centers of learning and worship, thirteen people were massacred at Columbine High School.
The Batman shootings in Aurora, Colorado show how far we’ve traveled from Mayberry. No one is safe in the spiritually poisoned and accursed USA anymore, not even in the cozy, enveloping darkness of a movie theatre, where killers roam in the dog days of summer both on and off the screen, knee deep in blood, Imax technology, and the 3-D reality that played just after midnight in Ramadan.
Both massacres, Batman and Columbine, occurred along “the heartline,” the 39th degree of north parallel latitude of the American heartland.
Update: Cues and Signals
Movie Previews that accompanied “Dark Knight Rises”
Skyfall trailer flashes Aurora
: “I went to see ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ with my 22-year-old son, at 3:15 pm, on Friday, July 20, 2012. One of the first visuals that stuck me, before the film began, was what I saw in a preview (trailer) to the forthcoming James Bond movie, ‘Skyfall.’ At the about the 39-40 second mark of the trailer, quite readable on an IMAX screen, a frame appears with a vivid skyline. Right there, up front, is a building with a red sign that reads Aurora.” –Loren Coleman
“Gangster Squad’ trailer With Theater Shooting Scene Preceded ‘Dark Knight’: One scene from the trailer for “Gangster Squad,” which can be viewed at the 2:03 minute mark of the trailer features four men standing behind a movie screen in trenchcoats, walking towards the audience shooting at them with automatic weapons as mayhem erupts in the theater.” –Huffington Post
With regard to the trailer for “Gangster Squad” which preceded the showing of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,” the “Gangster Squad” movie, due to premiere in September, 2012, is a fictionalized account of the life of Los Angeles hoodlum Mickey Cohen, whose girlfriend, “Candy Barr,” was at one time part of Jack Ruby’s stable of Texas strippers, and one of the first stars of porn. As noted, Batman’s Police Chief Gordon, Gary Oldman, played Lee Harvey Oswald in “JFK.” Oswald was, of course, killed by Jack Ruby. – Michael Hoffman
