No bones about it
Tonight is the winter solstice, midwinter, the shortest and thus darkest day of the year, all coinciding, rarely, with a total lunar eclipse.
Meanwhile in snow-white London, the Olympic stadium will be illuminated for the first time this evening, a plethora of sport stars and politicians witnessing the electrifying of the 532 individual HID lamps which light up the arena. From Bible Wheel (Revelations) re the "hidden" properties of the number 532:
"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty"
The Number 532 is deeply integrated with many expressions of Divinity
Meanwhile, coincidentally today, the official range of "Royal Wedding" bone china went on sale; bone china being famed for it' s whiteness and translucency, or shine, notwithstanding longevity.
Note -Since I initially posted the ritual has taken place (here), the switch hit by ("elite bloodlined" -see previous post) David Cameron. It appears that there are in fact 14 triangular lighting towers, each capable of holding 44 lights, although each only have 38 at the moment, hence the 532. However, if, or surely when, they are fully luminated, there will be a total of 616 - a number that many would contest was the original pre King James' edition "Biblical" number of the beast , a fact pointed out to me by aferrismoon some time ago. Also, I have added a photo of the crown/halo/eye like stadium.
