Part 14 - 2012 London Olympics - Crow, Reporting from the Garden

The Cultural Olympiad events present an array of enchantments leading up to and supporting the ceremonial rituals of the London Olympics. One of those in the Theatre & Performance category (18 Jun 2012 - 7 Jul 2012) is a puppet show based upon Crow, a collection of themed poems by Ted Hughes.

If that name sounds familiar to those of you who have been exploring this blog, Ted was the author of the 1968 novel "The Iron Man," the basis for the movie from 1999 titled “The Iron Giant”. That movie was featured for 17 posts in a series where I exposed many of the occult themes embedded into that subtle promotion of the Antichrist Beast. I can only think the upcoming production of the Crow will compare favorably in manner and effect.

Hughes considered Crow (1970) his masterpiece, and many agree that it is perhaps his most significant work. Given that he was the British Poet Laureate from 1984 until 1998 and that he's “recognised as one of the English language's finest 20th century poets” (Crow - Handspring UK), that's saying plenty. Hughes was heavily influenced by William Blake, who wrote the poem, “Jerusalem”, which I presented in the previous post, Part 13. “In a 1971 interview with London Magazine, Hughes cited his main influences as including Blake, Donne, Hopkins and Eliot. He mentioned also Schopenhauer, Robert Graves' book The White Goddess and The Tibetan Book of the Dead.” (Ted Hughes - Wikipedia)

Obviously, Crow isn't going to be exalting the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, but what is it about? According to the copy on the promo page: “Crow witnesses God's creation in the Garden of Eden and adds his own dry trickery to the events. Droll, lonely, adaptable, laughing, watching, instinctive and curious, Crow is in all of us, and in these poems Hughes presents the songs he would sing.” (Crow - Handspring UK)

Why a crow? Why not a dove or sparrow? This will become obvious shortly. The Bible doesn't explicitly identify the bird we call a crow, although it's obviously in the class of unclean birds because carrion is in its diet. Birds are sometimes a metaphor for demons. This is the case in Matthew 13's parable of the sower, where it's even interpreted to us.

4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up.
19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road.
Matthew 13:4,19

The metaphor continues in another of that chapter's parables.

31 He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that THE BIRDS OF THE AIR come and NEST IN ITS BRANCHES.”
Matthew 13:31-32

The birds of the air nesting in the tree illustrates most particularly the state of the church and His people called Jews today, referencing Daniel 4 and Babylon (“And the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches”) .

Here's another illustration from Ecclesiastes that is immediately relevant.

Furthermore, in your bedchamber do not curse a king, and in your sleeping rooms do not curse a rich man, for a bird of the heavens will carry the sound and the winged creature will make the matter known.
Ecclesiastes 10:20

A bird of the heavens carries a report as a witness. This is the kind of demonic reporting done by Hughes' Crow, from the Garden of Eden. The serpent, the devil, the CROW himself (and eagle/phoenix of Amaruca) was in the Garden of Eden, was he not? The NLP language of the Cultural Olympiad's promo page says “Crow is in all of us.” Literally, that seed has been dispersed into the world but there's another option that remains viable!

So, what does that Crow have to report? Here's one of the poems from the collection titled, Apple Tragedy.

So on the seventh day
The serpent rested,
God came up to him.
"I've invented a new game," he said.

The serpent stared in surprise
At this interloper.
But God said: "You see this apple?"
I squeeze it and look-cider."

The serpent had a good drink
And curled up into a question mark.
Adam drank and said: "Be my god."
Eve drank and opened her legs

And called to the cockeyed serpent
And gave him a wild time.
God ran and told Adam
Who in drunken rage tried to hang himself in the orchard.

The serpent tried to explain, crying "Stop"
But drink was splitting his syllable.
And Eve started screeching: "Rape! Rape!"
And stamping on his head.

Now whenever the snake appears she screeches
"Here it comes again! Help! O Help!"
Then Adam smashes a chair on his head,
And God says: "I am well pleased"

And everything goes to hell.

If you understand about Cain's paternity and the adult version of what really happened in the Garden, no further explanation is necessary. This promotion of Crow today illustrates a point I make fairly regularly, that having insight into what really happened in the Garden provides a foundation for a deeper understanding of what has happened since then, even until this age draws to its appointed end.

While it must be said that the Crow's report has something to reveal of the truth, it's offensive, even blasphemous. This is what gets honored and exalted in modern literature and theatrical arts, and promoted in association with the Olympics.

The following offers a little more perspective on the present promotion of Hughes' work.

“Hughes worked for 10 years on a prose poem, "Gaudete", which he hoped to have made into a film. It tells the story of the vicar of an English village who is carried off by elemental spirits, and replaced in the village by his enantiodromic double, a changeling, fashioned from a log, who nevertheless has the same memories as the original vicar. The double is a force of nature who organises the women of the village into a "love coven" in order that he may father a new messiah. When the male members of the community discover what is going on, they murder him. The epilogue consists of a series of lyrics spoken by the restored priest in praise of a nature goddess, inspired by Robert Graves's White Goddess.”

I believe anyone who considers what is being done in association with the London Olympics must come to see evidence suggesting there is a vast conspiracy to bring forth a new messiah in some Jerusalem through ritual magick. The Olympic objective appears to be to establish on some level a Zion of Zeus in the Olympic Park this year, perhaps manifesting also in the greater UK and in what that symbolically represents, the entirety of the inhabited earth. To what degree they might meet their goals, we shall see. I'm betting there's a zero chance of bringing forth the Beast before 2015, but I see many steps being taken to advance that agenda - and the London Olympics as one giant step toward that end!


  1. Another great post, Bob! You do some terrific work.

    You and I agree on 2015 (but for different reasons) - still, it doesn't mean that der fuhrer won't be put into power in 2012 and not become the antichrist at a different time...

  2. Thanks Jeff. We're sure not going to be bored "waiting around" and watching!
