Temple of Doom

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:38 PM

Graeme McMillan in The Hollywood Reporter  Saturday —

"The Quantum Realm is a place where time and space
work differently, and has all sorts of potential to help
keep the MCU fresh for its second decade of films. . . .

So where did it all come from?

What is known to movie audiences as the Quantum Realm
debuted in 1963’s Fantastic Four  No. 16, in a story called
'The Micro-World of Doctor Doom!' "

The Diamond Theory of Truth

“Legend says that when the stones
are brought together the diamonds
inside of them will glow.”

— Harrison Ford in
“Indiana Jones and the
Temple of Doom

In today’s online New York Times:

(1) A review of pop-archaeology TV,
     “Digging for the Truth,”
(2) a Sunday news story,
     “Looking for the Lie,”
(3) and a profile,
     “Storyteller in the Family.”

From (1):
“The season premiere ‘Digging for the Truth: The Real Temple of Doom,’ showed Mr. Bernstein in South America, exploring tunnels….”
From (2):
“… scientists are building a cognitive theory of deception to show what lying looks like….”
From (3):
“I did feel one had to get not just the facts, but the emotional underpinnings.”

to the Dance of Kali:

Fat Man and Dancing Girl

Dance of
Shiva and Kali

Paul Newman as

From "The Bomb of the Blue God," by M. V. Ramana

kalosmi lokaksaya krt pravrddho

"This literally means: I am kala, the great destroyer of Worlds. What is intriguing about this verse, then, is the interpretation of kala by Jungk and others to mean death. While death is technically one of the meanings of kala, a more common one is time."

 See 1132 AD & Saint Brighid, and my 2003 weblog entries of January 5 (Twelfth Night and the whirligig of time), January 31 (St. Bridget's Eve), and February 1 (St. Bridget's Day).

The fact that Oppenheimer thought, on this date in 1945, of Chapter 11, verse 32, of the Gita may, as a mnemonic device, be associated with the use of the number 1132 in Finnegans Wake.
