Part 46 - Rango - Hyper-Kaaba, The Immortals and the Marvel Universe Cosmic Cube

Rango's umbrella drink's fascinating ice cube pictures a hypercube, a projection into our 3D plus time "plane" of existence of a higher dimensional space and activity. Shifting focus slightly from the crystal composition to the cube shape, what little attention is given it in Rango is more than compensated for when insight into what is meant by the cube is sought elsewhere. Thanks, Jonathan, for your efforts in this regard!

The Holy of holies is a cube, and the New Jerusalem is also a cube. There is a famous brick building in Mecca, Saudi Arabia known as the Kaaba (Qaaba), which means “cube.” It's considered the most sacred site in Islam. Within that granite cube set on a marble base is the Black Stone, the eastern cornerstone. According to Muslim tradition, the stone dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. It fell from heaven to earth, landing on a nearby hill. When Muslims pray, they face Mecca, and most specifically, the Black Stone inside the Qaaba.

The Kaaba marked the location where the sacred world intersected with the profane, and the embedded Black Stone was a further symbol of this as an object that linked heaven and earth.

Black Stone - History and tradition

Consider the language used more literally than figuratively. There's a trend where the cube represents a hypercube's intersection with our 3-space. By the way, I introduce the Black Stone here because it relates to Rango's floating terrarium gravel (coming up in the queue). Please note, this comparison of the Kaaba to the Holy of Holies is not to equate them in some way, but to call attention to it as an important example of how cubes imply higher dimensionality. The devil knows the way of hypercubes and leverages such in physical modeling, leveraging architecture and other media where the symbol may be exploited.

This animation of a Tesseract illustrates how a 4-space hypercube appears as constrained into reduced dimensions. This is also called an octahedral hypercube, which can be represented as Salvadore Dali chose to do in his famous Corpus Hypercubus, from 1954. Dali's symbolic interpretation of the crucifixion on the higher dimensional cross testifies of something happening in other unseen dimensions, in the heavenly realms, as intersecting with our 3-space plus time.

On the altar of Zeus , there is a frieze depicting scenes of battles between the ancient Titans and the gods of Mt. Olympus. Such a battle is reenacted in a move being released on DVD called The Immortals. The Titans had been restrained inside the mountain of Tartarus inside a cube. The gods of Olympus were only permitted to engage on behalf of humans in the eventuality of the release of the Titans, which is to say that their release from the cube was a major plot element. They are released from the prison cube by a light arrow (phallic emblem) that was shot from a magical bow. A light arrow is directed EMR wave energy, used as something of a key to release ancient gods bound in the earth, contained within a cube. The binding of ancient gods in a cube illustrates the extradimensional nature of their containment.

The throne of Zeus that was formerly on the acropolis in Pergamon is now in Berlin, restored. Its an ancient architectural artifact that is famously referenced as “Satan's throne” in Revelation 2:13. As I see it, a battle between Titans and gods of Olympus is a “good cop, bad cop” kind of dynamic. There are no "good guys" in the fight, even though the reasoning behind the release of the Titans was the destruction of the savior figure and those for whom he fought. That savior, Thesius, was a hybrid, son of Zeus.

A Tesseract cube is the “MacGuffin” or central plot device and “must have” object in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011 - Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving). The cube plays a larger role in the Marvel comic universe as the cosmic cube.

The Cosmic Cubes are items that control matter and energy, answering to the will of the sentient beings that use them. They require practice to be used properly, but a skillful user can alter all reality to answer to its thought, granting anything they desire.
Most Cosmic Cubes are cube-shaped matrices. However, similar objects with different shapes are known as Cosmic Containment Units.
Sentient beings wanting to create a Cosmic Cube must generate a force field to open a rift to another dimension inhabited by the Beyonders, allowing the extra-dimensional energy to filter through the rift. When entering the Earth’s dimension, the energies can be held in a matrix, and the force itself would shape the matrix into a perfect cube. It would also provide the Cube with its almost-unlimited power.

Connect the dots. Comics, cartoons and animated features are very effective programming tools. Truth is wrapped in lies. When you know the Truth, the revealer of secrets, and he opens the plan to you, He filters the lies so you can discern more about the plan.

This image is of what's referred to as the all-important Cosmic Cube. This is the Marvel panel that closed out Comic-Con 2010. Notice that the cube is pictured like fire and ice, as Enoch described the sovereign God's throne room in chapter 14.

Later on I’ll give you my full impressions of the Marvel panel that closed out Comic-Con 2010, but for now I want to share something that had me geeking out:
Despite only being in production for a week Captain America: The First Avenger arrived with a complete scene, set in Norway in 1942. The Red Skull, before he becomes the Red Skull, smashes through the front of an ancient temple and sends his Nazi goons to a crypt looking for something he calls The Tesseract. They open up a sarcophagus and find a large, misty cube atop the corpse of a Crusader. But the Skull can’t be fooled, and he knows this is a fake, smashing it to the ground.
Instead he finds a hidden compartment in a wall carving of Yggdrasil, the Norse Tree of Life. And within that is a box, the contents of which glow an unearthly blue.
I knew it was the Cosmic Cube, but after the panel I cornered Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and got the confirmation. Yes, he told me, the Cosmic Cube is in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The Cosmic Cube is one of the strangest and most enduring aspects of Captain America’s mythology. A containment unit for vast extradimensional energies, the Cosmic Cube gives its wielder almost unlimited control over reality. The Red Skull has, time and again, tried to control the Cosmic Cube, and its limitless power has played into many, many classic Captain America stories – including The Winter Soldier arc, where it was revealed that Bucky, Cap’s long-thought dead sidekick from WWII, was actually a brainwashed Soviet super assassin (yeah, it’s comics).
The introduction of the Cosmic Cube – and the fact that the film connects it to Asgard (in the Marvel Universe Cosmic Cubes have been created by many civilizations) – seem to set up unique and large scale possibilities for The Avengers and whatever comes after. The possibilities, when one has a Cosmic Cube, are endless.

The Cosmic Cube is in Captain America: First Avenger By Devin Faraci

A containment unit for vast extradimensional energies, the Cosmic Cube gives its wielder almost unlimited control over reality,” we read. In the sixth verse of Genesis 11, the Lord God was assessing the situation when the Tower of Babel was under construction. He declared, “and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.” The Red Skull-cosmic cube plot is a comic book version of the Nimrod-Tower of Babel scheme. I wrote about this in Part 43 with reference to the cube+water bow in the clouds formed while Rango fell to earth: “Is this evidence of something akin to what was later done to frustrate those in the plain of Shinar who would have acquired the ability to do whatever they purposed to do? They were going to accomplish that by leveraging a construct that had a bottom on the earth and a top in the heavens, like Bifröst bridging Midgard, the realm of man, and Asgard, the realm of the gods. This architectural stargate technology built by ancient masons is referred to as the tower of Babel, remember?” Did you note in Devin Faraci's blog that the Captain America film connects the tesseract cosmic cube to Asgard? Tesseract cosmic cube ~ Bifröst access. Are you connecting the dots? The Norse Tree of Life marked where the cube was found, in a box. The Osiris story, even referenced cryptically in Rango, has Osiris encased inside the tree in a box. Mythologies and such fiction as Rango and Captain America are rooted in reality. Truth is concealed and revealed thereby.

More to follow on the cube - Lord willing!
