A Sun Goddess for Sunday

Beiwe

A fanciful interpretation of the Saami goddess Beiwe derived from this description:

“The Saami, indigenous people of Finland, Sweden and Norway, worship Beiwe, the sun-goddess of fertility and sanity. She travels through the sky in a structure made of reindeer bones with her daughter, Beiwe-Neia, to herald back the greenery on which the reindeer feed. On the winter solstice, her worshipers sacrifice white female animals, and with the meat, thread and sticks, bed into rings with ribbons [sic]. They also cover their doorposts with butter so Beiwe can eat it and begin her journey once again.”

The German youths who celebrated the solstice with sheep-sacrifices were not the first to hear the rustling in the primeval forest of the unconsciousness. They were anticipated by Nietzsche, Schuler, Stefan George, and Ludwig Klages. The literary tradition of the Rhineland and the country south of the Main has a classical stamp that cannot easily be got rid of; every interpretation of intoxication and exuberance is apt to be taken back to classical models, to Dionysus, to the puer aeternus and the cosmogonic Eros.No doubt it sounds better to academic ears to interpret these things as Dionysus, but Wotan might be a more correct interpretation. He is the god of storm and frenzy, the unleasher of passions and the lust of battle; moreover he is a superlative magician and artist in illusion who is versed in all secrets of an occult nature.

I’m sure you’re wondering why the United States government (control mind) would be so interested in what appears to be a record company. Well, I’m about to show you why. From this command center, we control the most influential demographic of the population. We turn your world into one giant TV commercial. But how, you may ask, can our operation be so effective? Sure these kids have brains like play dough, just waiting to be molded into shape, but something else must be going on, right? For years the government has been wisely coercing teenagers to buy products they normally wouldn’t want. That’s why the government has been planting small subliminal advertising suggestions in today’s music. How can you control the bands? What if they find out about the hidden messages in their music? Ever wonder why so many stars die in plane crashes? Overdosed on drugs? We’ve been doing this a long time. If they start to get too curious, our options are endless. Bankruptcies… shocking scandals… religious conversions! They’re trying to create an army of mindless teenagers, to make them buy things and even control their thoughts. That’s because they’re mindless drones who will gobble up anything you tell them is cool. You’re a real free thinker, aren’t you? A real non-conformist. This is what they’re really hearing. Conform. Free will is overrated. Jump on the bandwagon. We found that subliminal messages work much better in movies.

This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous. My husband is planning an accident in my car, brake failure or some serious head injury in order to make the path clear for him to marry Tiggy. Camilla is nothing more than a decoy so we are being used by the man in every sense of the word.
