A good bun bowl with sautéed tofu and lots of sriracha 🌶
This weekend my family is going on a little getaway to one of my favorite city, Lyon, where we actually lived for two years and I’m so happy to see known places again ☺️
I know I am fucking late but well yeah, SM has me hyped on the theory stuff now. So here goes my two cents on it.
London : Jongin : teleportation The Victorian era has always been fascinated with egypt. They even built teleportation chamber which led to ancient Egypt. We do see jongin in London and his power is teleportation and also him on the Sphinx/ other Egyptian structure in exordium vcr
“An earlier Egyptologist was Joseph Bonomi traded as an
archaeological artist but is thought to have been a tomb raider. He is also generally considered to have been
the designer of the Egyptian styled ‘Courtoy’ tomb in Brompton cemetery which
was ostensibly intend to be the final resting place of 'three spinsters’. An interesting legend has grown up around
this mausoleum because it is the only one in the cemetery for which there is no
record of construction. This, together
with Bonomi’s obsession with the afterlife (reflected in the heiroglyphs on the
tomb), have been held by some to be evidence that it is not a tomb at all…..In
fact the tomb is one of five 'teleportation’ chambers designed by Joseph Bonomi
and built by his occult partner the Clerkenwell inventor Samuel Alfred Warner. “
Barcelona : Tao : time travel
“The World Brain organisation described in The Shape of
Things to Come of 1933, the headquarters for which is located in Barcelona,
contains echoes of the index organisation described in A Modern Utopia of 1905.
One imagines that the vast centralised database of A Modern Utopia that is
needed for the surveillance and disposition of the population would necessarily
be part of the new and improved "knowledge apparatus” Wells was
latter to describe as a World Brain or World Encyclopedia organisation"
HG wells is known as the father of time travel. His book,
the shape of the things to come predicts future history.
Also he is shown to be exiting from Kafka café. In metamorphosis,
kafka’s hero wakes up and turned into another creature. In translation it is
said to be a beetle, but in the original ne it signifies a butterfly.
Butterflies signify loneliness/being alone. Butterfly has been an icon for both
Sehun and Tao in MAMA teaser.
Arizona : Chanyeol : fire/phoenix
Phoenix is the capital of arizona
“The most mystical and most beautiful of all winged
beasts - the Phoenix, the "Bird of Flame”, an incarnation of Foiros.
"Arizona’s Wallow Wildfire has consumed more than 733
square miles (1,898 square kilometers) — an area nearly half the size of Rhode
Island — in the space of two weeks.”
Similar to what we see in yeol’s teaser, wildfire spreading
Berlin : Minseok : ice
We see minseok entering an abandoned building
with graffiti on it’s walls.
“Berliner Eisfabrik. Abandoned ice factory, one of Germany’s
oldest, which managed to survive two world wars, several fires and countless
Edinburgh : sehun : wind
“Given Edinburgh’s position between the coast and hills, it
is renowned as “the windy city”, with the prevailing wind direction
coming from the south west, which is often associated with warm, unstable air
from the North Atlantic Current that can give rise to rainfall – although
considerably less than cities to the west, such as Glasgow. Rainfall is
distributed fairly evenly throughout the year. Winds from an easterly
direction are usually drier but considerably colder, and may be accompanied by
haar, a persistent coastal fog. Vigorous Atlantic depressions, known as
European windstorms, can affect the city between October and May.”
Marseilles : Junmyeon: water
Marseilles has always been connected because of it’s port and
“Historically, the economy of Marseilles was dominated by its
role as a port of the French Empire, linking the North African colonies of
Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia with Metropolitan France. The Old Port was
replaced as the main port for trade by the Port de la Joliette during the
In the teaser we see drought is everywhere with the whole
forest being dry, but then jun sits in the public bath(I guess?) place and the
water flows in signifying his powers are back.
In reality there has been a severe drought in
Marseilles in history. Historians have noted there has been some small series
of earthquakes(soo’s power) and then the sudden flow of water in abundance to
the city. However, this water again
dried up after some time followed by another earthquake.
Almaty : Jongdae : lightning
Jondae was in Almaty which is some mile from Astana. This
makes sense because there is an emblematic tree of life and since JD is soo’s
counterpart, there is a symbolism of tree of life where he is present.
“Construction of the Bayterek Tower began in 1997, the year
the capital was moved from Almaty to Astana. Euronews’ Seamus Kearney reported:
“The view of the tower from a distance is stunning enough, but don’t forget to
take a lift to the top to get a bird’s-eye view of Astana.”
The tower represents a tree of life visited by a mythical
bird of happiness.”
“– The association between lightning and the Tree of Life
mirrors the real link between lightning and trees. Sheltering under trees in a thunderstorm can
be dangerous, as that is precisely where lightning is most likely to strike.
- ‘Beware of an oak, it draws the stroke’, or put another
way, the tree draws down power from the heavens to the earth.”
Also, the version A cards show them holding colored balls.
[This image of the
Tree of Life showing the Path of the Lightning Bolt is the most important image
of the tree to understand further theories. The Path of the Lightning Bolt is
the creative energy flowing from the Primum Mobile to the most concrete
manifestation. It determines the numbering of the Spheres (Sephirot), and as we
shall see later, the order of the paths connecting them. Above the first
Sephira, you can see Ain Sof Aur, the Limitless Light; beyond which is Ain Sof,
Limitlessness (which is invisible); and beyond that, Ain, Nothing. For those
who want to skip ahead, the Gemmatria of Ain Sof is 207, and Aur is also
207…together 414, the same as hagooth: meditation. The Sephirot are numbered
and named as follows:
1. Keter, the Crown
(white) 2. Hokmah, Wisdom (grey) 3. Binah, Understanding (black) Daath,
Knowledge (colourless). This is the unnumbered “bridge” over the
“abyss” separating the divine from the mundane. A great mystery. 4.
Hesed, Mercy (blue) 5. Geburah, Might (red) 6. Tipareth, Beauty (yellow) 7.
Netzach, Victory (green) 8. Hod, Glory (orange) 9. Yesod, Foundation (purple) 10.
Malkuth, the Kingdom (sky blue or earth brown) ]
Lyon : Baekhyun : light
Lyon is famous for it’s festival of lights, earning the
title of Capital of Lights.
“Lyon played a significant role in the history of cinema: it
is where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematographe. It is also
known for its light festival, the Fête des Lumières, which begins every 8
December and lasts for four days, earning Lyon the title of Capital of Lights.”
“8 December each year is marked by the Festival of Lights
(la Fête des lumières), a celebration of thanks to the Virgin Mary, who
purportedly saved the city from a deadly plague in the Middle Ages. During the
event, the local population places candles (lumignons) at their windows and the
city of Lyon organises impressive large-scale light shows onto the sides of
important Lyonnais monuments, such as the mediaeval Cathédrale St-Jean.”
Yunnan : Yixing : Healer
We have known from the beginning that yixing is the healer for
exo theory. Him arriving at Yunnan was no coincidence, because
“Yunnan Baiyao (or Yunnan Paiyao; simplified Chinese: 云南白药; traditional
Chinese: 雲南白藥; pinyin: Yúnnán Báiyào; literally: “Yunnan White Drug”)
is a hemostatic powdered medicine famous for being carried by the Vietcong to
stop bleeding during the Vietnam War.The medicine, developed by Qu Huangzhang
in 1902, is designated as one of two Class-1 protected traditional medicines,
which gives it 20 years protection. In China, its reputation is equal to that
of penicillin in the U.S. It is founded and manufactured by a state-owned
enterprise, Yunnan Baiyao Group (SZSE: 000538) in Yunnan, China.”
Colorado : Soo/ All : earth n tree of life
In the Southwest corner of Colorado, 18 miles at 92 degrees
from Egnar, there appears to be a “Tree of Life” and the remains of a
Buddha-figure in a Lotus Flower, pair of megalithic-carved/shaped landscapes.

“It’s not to put City down, because City are an unbelievable team,” added Bronze. “They are going to develop and grow to hopefully be similar to Lyon.
"It took me a week or so to really think about what I wanted. I was kind of divided, whether to stay and continue to grow the club and maybe become a team level with Lyon, or whether to go to Lyon now and really push myself.
"But I thought about when City played Lyon, and how much of a challenge it was to mark some of these players who are consistently named among the world’s best.
"I just want to be around that every single day, and push myself to be on a level with the likes of (France captain) Wendie Renard and (Germany’s) Dzsenifer Marozsan.
"My game needs to improve. My technical ability probably needs the most work, and the French are known for being one of the best technical teams in the world. Trying to emulate the things they do is going to push me on.”
