DART, Defense, Didymos/Didymus, Dimorphism ~ Digital Twins, Dassault, Digital Assets, Demogorgons?

This is a thinking out loud exercise . . . I have not quite connected each of these concepts together (in a concrete manner), yet I have a hunch they do somehow mesh . . .

Does today – September 26, 2022 – signify a digital twin impact ritual encoded by NASA’s DART kinetic impact asteroid mission? What is really being crystallized through this kinetic operation?


On Sept. 26, DART will intentionally crash into Dimorphos, the asteroid moonlet of Didymos. While the asteroid poses no threat to Earth, this is the world’s first test of the kinetic impact technique, using a spacecraft to deflect an asteroid for planetary defense.

Johns Hopkins APL manages the DART mission for NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office as a project of the agency’s Planetary Missions Program Office. DART is the world’s first planetary defense test mission, intentionally executing a kinetic impact into Dimorphos to slightly change its motion in space. While the asteroid does not pose any threat to Earth, the DART mission will demonstrate that a spacecraft can autonomously navigate to a kinetic impact on a relatively small asteroid and prove this is a viable technique to deflect an asteroid on a collision course with Earth if one is ever discovered. DART will reach its target on Sept. 26, 2022.


“DART is turning science fiction into science fact and is a testament to NASA’s proactivity and innovation for the benefit of all,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.

Marsh’s Digital Asset Risk Transfer (DART) team offers specialised risk transfer solutions tailored to the needs of companies operating in the blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and digital asset arena.

Do you see crystallized twins in the logo?


The takeaway

Digital twins improve productivity, safety and quality, and support sustainability targets by removing travel requirements and wastage

Digital twins play an important role in Ericsson’s factories, reducing unplanned downtime by around 50%

The global digital twin market is predicted to be worth US$48.2 billion by 2026

Lead times from ‘survey complete’ to ‘design complete’ for antenna/site installation are reduced by 50%

Digital twins will create a ‘cyber-physical continuum’ which means events in either reality will influence the other, blurring the distinction between the virtual and the real

Tessellation and Connection System for Space Assembly of Modular Units

Sep 28, 2021

The present disclosure describes systems and methods for mapping a planar surface to a curved surface. One such method comprises providing a planar lattice pattern having identical regular polygon shapes which can be truss support modules for supporting a curved surface structure. Method further include determining respective positions of the nodal points of the identical polygon shapes by placing a starting nodal point on an axis of symmetry of the planar lattice pattern and iteratively positioning each nodal point in relation to already placed neighboring nodes to make a distance between a currently positioned nodal point optimally close with a set value of the planar lattice pattern. Method still further comprises forming a curved lattice pattern of the truss support module based on the positions of the nodal points of the identical polygon shapes.

[At the time of the impact, Dimorphos will be in the constellation of Fornax and best viewed from the southern hemisphere. The asteroid will rise in the UK later in the evening. The star chart below shows its location at 4am on 27 September 2022]


Note the position of Cetus (which borders Fornax):

This was aptly pointed out by Goro at Super Torch Ritual, and he cleverly connected it to Dart, whom we have seen in Stranger Things (linking us to this DART impact eventl), as I noted above:

Incidentally (coincidentally) – just as I was about to upload this reply, I watched the beginning of Episode 6 of the TV series, Little Demon (which debuted last week). At the beginning of the episode, there is discussion of whales (implying Cetus), and the main character of the show is holding a pet that looks peculiarly like Dart of Stranger Things, and hence, the Cetus constellation:

Also note the imprinting of outer space, a spiral galaxy, and the Voronoi pattern (and as I mentioned, the whale/Cetus which is seen on the computer screen in the image below):

I noticed something else, though. Cetus brings to mind Kary Mullis and Cetus Corporation:

IN THE SUMMER OF 1984 the senior scientists of Cetus Corp., a Berkeley biotech company, found themselves in a bind. One of their employees, a promising young scientist named Kary Mullis, had dreamed up a technique to exponentially replicate tiny scraps of DNA. He called it polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and if it worked it would change the world and likely earn Cetus a mountain of money. The only problem was Mullis was an interpersonal wrecking ball.

@AMcD @Gino Given the source (hot springs), is Taq DNA polymerase linked to Primary water?

Cetus Corporation was one of the first biotechnology companies.[1] It was established in Berkeley, California, in 1971, but conducted most of its operations in nearby Emeryville. Before merging with Chiron Corporation in 1991 (now a part of Novartis), it developed several significant pharmaceutical drugs as well as a revolutionary DNA amplification technique.


Cetus was founded in 1971 by Ronald E. Cape, Peter Farley, and Nobelist Donald A. Glaser. Its early efforts involved automated methods to select for industrial microorganisms that could produce greater amounts of chemical feedstocks, antibiotics, or vaccine components. By the late 1970s, however, three new revolutionary techniques had been developed: recombinant DNA, monoclonal antibodies, and gene expression, the foundations of the biotechnology industry. In order to enter these new fields, Cetus raised $108 million in an initial public offering (IPO) in 1981, the largest IPO to that date.

Its first large development project, in conjunction with Triton Biosciences, was the successful cloning, expression, modification, and production of beta-interferon. Unfortunately, the resultant protein did not live up to its expectations as a broad-spectrum anti-cancer drug, and only much later was it approved for use to treat symptoms of multiple sclerosis.[2] The product is now sold under the name Betaseron.

The company’s flagship product was Interleukin-2 (IL-2), an important modifier of the immune system. In the early 1980s, an intense competition to clone the gene for IL-2 was underway among Cetus, Genentech, Immunex, and the Japanese researcher, Tadatsugu Taniguchi, and in 1982 Taniguchi was the first to succeed.[3]: 76 By 1983 Cetus created a proprietary recombinant version of IL2 and collaborated with Steven Rosenberg to begin clinical trials.[3]: 76–77 The drug showed promising effects in treating renal cancer, but also had significant side effects on patients. In 1990 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refused to approve the drug for clinical use, asking for additional information.[4] It wasn’t until two years later, after Cetus had been sold, that IL-2 was approved. It is now distributed under the name Proleukin.

The company also had a broad effort to research and develop techniques for DNA diagnostics. Collaborations were made with Perkin-Elmer for diagnostic instruments, and with Kodak for commercial diagnostic kits. It was here that the technique of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) DNA amplification was conceived by Kary Mullis. The technique has been widely used in DNA research, forensics, and genetic disease diagnostics. Its inventor received the Nobel Prize in 1993, the only one awarded for research performed at a biotechnology company.

The delay in FDA approval for IL-2 created a major funding crisis at Cetus, which had been spending a considerable fraction of its investments to produce and test the drug.[5][6] The company’s CEO resigned six weeks later, and patent rights to the PCR process were sold to Hoffman-La Roche. Losses continued, and in 1991 the company was sold to Chiron Corporation.[7] Chiron continued the development of IL-2, which was finally approved by the FDA in 1992. Chiron also collected the scattered rights for the production of beta-interferon, which was approved for clinical use in 1993.

Donald Arthur Glaser (September 21, 1926 – February 28, 2013) was an American physicist, neurobiologist, and the winner of the 1960 Nobel Prize in Physics for his invention of the bubble chamber used in subatomic particle physics.[1][2][3]



Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Glaser completed his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and mathematics from Case School of Applied Science[2]: 10 in 1946. He completed his Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1949.[4] Glaser accepted a position as an instructor at the University of Michigan in 1949, and was promoted to professor in 1957. He joined the faculty of the University of California at Berkeley, in 1959, as a Professor of Physics. During this time his research concerned short-lived elementary particles. The bubble chamber enabled him to observe the paths and lifetimes of the particles.

Starting in 1962, Glaser changed his field of research to molecular biology, starting with a project on ultraviolet-induced cancer. In 1964, he was given the additional title of Professor of Molecular Biology. Glaser’s position (since 1989) was Professor of Physics and Neurobiology in the Graduate School.

Personal life[edit]

Donald Glaser was born on September 21, 1926, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Russian Jewish immigrants, Lena and William J. Glaser, a businessman.[5][6] He enjoyed music and played the piano, violin, and viola. He went to Cleveland Heights High School, where he became interested in physics as a means to understand the physical world.[2]: 2, 6, 8 He died in his sleep at the age of 86 on February 28, 2013 in Berkeley, California,[7] survived by his wife, Lynn Glaser, his daughter, Louise Glaser, his son, William Glaser, and his grandchildren Emily and Katherine Schreiner and Caroline, Julia, Ava, and Max Glaser.

Education and early career[edit]

Glaser attended Case School of Applied Science (now Case Western Reserve University), where he completed his bachelor’s degree in physics and mathematics in 1946. During the course of his education there, he became especially interested in particle physics.[2]: 15 He played viola in the Cleveland Philharmonic while at Case, and taught mathematics classes at the college after graduation.[2]: 12 He continued on to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), where he pursued his Ph.D. in physics. His interest in particle physics led him to work with Nobel laureate Carl David Anderson, studying cosmic rays with cloud chambers.[2]: 22 He preferred the accessibility of cosmic ray research over that of nuclear physics. While at Caltech he learned to design and build the equipment he needed for his experiments,[2]: 22 and this skill would prove to be useful throughout his career. He also attended molecular genetics seminars led by Nobel laureate Max Delbrück;[2]: 20 he would return to this field later. Glaser completed his doctoral thesis, The Momentum Distribution of Charged Cosmic Ray Particles Near Sea Level, after starting as an instructor at the University of Michigan in 1949.[2]: 28 He received his Ph.D. from Caltech in 1950, and he was promoted to Professor at Michigan in 1957.[2]: 43

Bubble chamber[edit]

Main article: Bubble chamber

A bubble chamber.

While teaching at Michigan, Glaser began to work on experiments that led to the creation of the bubble chamber.[2]: 37 His experience with cloud chambers at Caltech had shown him that they were inadequate for studying elementary particles. In a cloud chamber, particles pass through gas and collide with metal plates that obscure the scientists’ view of the event. The cloud chamber also needs time to reset between recording events and cannot keep up with accelerators’ rate of particle production.[2]: 31–32

He experimented with using superheated liquid in a glass chamber. Charged particles would leave a track of bubbles as they passed through the liquid, and their tracks could be photographed. He created the first bubble chamber with ether.[2]: 37–38 He experimented with hydrogen while visiting the University of Chicago, showing that hydrogen would also work in the chamber.[2]: 44

It has often been claimed that Glaser was inspired to his invention by the bubbles in a glass of beer; however, in a 2006 talk, he refuted this story, saying that although beer was not the inspiration for the bubble chamber, he did experiments using beer to fill early prototypes.[8]

His new invention was ideal for use with high-energy accelerators,[2]: 47 so Glaser traveled to Brookhaven National Laboratory with some students to study elementary particles using the accelerator there. The images that he created with his bubble chamber brought recognition of the importance of his device, and he was able to get funding to continue experimenting with larger chambers. Glaser was then recruited by Nobel laureate Luis Alvarez,[2]: 59 who was working on a hydrogen bubble chamber at the University of California at Berkeley. Glaser accepted an offer to become a Professor of Physics there in 1959.[2]: 60

Nobel Prize[edit]

Glaser was awarded the 1960 Nobel Prize for Physics for the invention of the bubble chamber. His invention allowed scientists to observe what happens to high-energy beams from an accelerator, thus paving the way for many important discoveries.[2]: 64–65

Other awards and honors[edit]

Transition to molecular biology[edit]

After winning the Nobel Prize, Glaser began to think about switching from physics into a new field. He wanted to concentrate on science, and found that as the experiments and equipment grew larger in scale and cost, he was doing more administrative work. He also anticipated that the ever-more-complex equipment would cause consolidation into fewer sites and would require more travel for physicists working in high-energy physics.[2]: 68 Recalling his interest in molecular genetics that began at Caltech, Glaser began to study biology. He spent a semester at MIT as a visiting professor and attended biology seminars there, and also spent a semester at Copenhagen with Ole Maaloe, the prominent Danish molecular biologist.[2]: 72

Glazer told his business colleagues at Cetus that after winning the Nobel prize he decided he had spent the first part of his life studying the physical world and that he now wanted to study the basis of life itself so he changed to studying biology and genetics. He made the comment “As a physicist and highly trained engineer my immediate thought upon entering my first biology lab was that Louis Pasteur would be comfortable working there.” He then went on to develop equipment to automate various biological processes. In fact, Cetus was originally formed to utilize his inventions and expertise with its first projects focused on producing higher yielding antibiotic strains as the company then evolved, pioneering the field of biotechnology.

He worked in UC Berkeley’s Virus Lab (now the Biochemistry and Virus Laboratory),[2]: 76 doing experiments with bacterial phages, bacteria, and mammalian cells. He studied the development of cancer cells, in particular the skin cancer xeroderma pigmentosum.[2]: 69 As with the bubble chamber, he used his experience designing equipment to improve the experimental process. He automated the process of pouring out agar, spreading culture, and counting colonies of cells using a machine he called the dumbwaiter. It took photographs, administered chemicals, and had a mechanical hand to pick up colonies.[2]: 76–77

Commercial ventures[edit]

While continuing to work at UC Berkeley, Glaser started Berkeley Scientific Laboratory with Bill Wattenberg in 1968. The short-lived partnership worked on automating diagnostic procedures.[2]: 88

In 1971 he founded Cetus Corporation with Moshe Alafi, Ron Cape, and Peter Farley.[2]: 89–90 Glaser’s position was Chairman of the Science Advisory Board.[2]: 96 The founders felt that the knowledge scientists had gained about DNA had not yet been applied to solve real problems.[2]: 112 The company did microbial strain improvement,[2]: 96–97 and then genetic engineering,[2]: 110 becoming the first biotechnology company. Cetus was purchased by Chiron Corporation in 1991.[2]: 115

Transition to neurobiology[edit]

As molecular biology became more dependent on biochemistry, Glaser again considered a career change. His experience automating visual tasks in physics and molecular biology led him to an interest in human vision and how the brain processes what is seen. He began to work on computational modeling of the visual system and visual psychophysics, and spent a sabbatical at the Rowland Institute for Science.[1][2]: 116

Speaking of bubble chambers . . . This may seem like a stretch – but just yesterday, I saw this image of Edward Snowden’s wife, Lindsay Mills (enclosed in bubble wrap – get it, a bubble chamber?!):



This is even more of a stretch of the imagination . . . But, hey, while I am at it . . .

In a few years, the European Space Agency also intends to send its own DART detective satellite, dubbed HERA, to accompany LICIACube on the quest to decode the impact’s dusty aftermath.

Dart’s owner in Stranger Things is Dustin (get it . . . Dusty?):


@stephers Marsh and McLennan are current occupants of the office building where Bellcore was. Left second from bottom.


Not sure if you saw the constellation Horologium below it?

Horologium, shown as Horologium Pendulum, on Chart XX of Johann Bode’s Uranographia star atlas (1801). Bode showed it with a nine-rod gridiron pendulum, as invented by the English clockmaker John Harrison in 1726. Lacaille’s original depiction was of a much simpler design of the type originally invented by the Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens in 1656.


Cetus and Chiron? Also I think of “whale” and how it’s been used in crypto lingo.

Also reference to Triton Industries - Poseidon (Vanguard building) and Trident.

I was just listening to a panel on crypto crash in March - linked to Terra-Luna tethered coin (Earth / Moon) brought down by some margin calls set up by Three Arrows (trident?) Capital.

Also note imaging DARTs.

I feel like this collapse was planned and tied to symbolic coin - also involved Voyager platform - space and ocean.


Glaser - also glass, right?

People also ask

Is Glaser German?

The Glaser name comes from the Middle High German “glas,” meaning “glass,” and as such was an occupational name for a glass blower or glazier.

"He then went on to develop equipment to automate various biological processes. "


So, sure enough – just a bit more synchronous DARTing amidst this super creepy TV show, Little Demon:

Near the end of Episode 6 appears a dart board – and it just so happens to be situated in a starry sky. Hmmmm . . . Keep in mind this episode aired on September 22, 2022 – 4 days prior to NASA’s DART impact asteroid mission. Who (or what) conjures this synchy stuff anyway??? Transmedia storytelling on steroids???

The following image appears in the same scene – invoking rocks (aka asteroids), Lovecraft’s Cthulhu, and a portal to boot (through the rocks/asteroids no less). I also see the astrological imprinting of the tiger (set in the starry sky) – keep in mind this is the Chinese Year of the Tiger (which I wrote about on New Years Eve 2022) . . .


@AMcD @Leo Did I forget to mention that the animated TV series, Little Demon, is produced by Atomic Cartoons?

The series is the first show produced by Atomic Cartoons aimed at an adult audience.

@AMcD @Gino Atomic Cartoons is based out of Vancouver, BC.


For some context regarding below . . . Two days after the DART asteroid impact event (September 28, 2022), rapper/actor Coolio reportedly passed away:

Coolio’s birth name was Artis Leon Ivey Jr – Artis almost resembling (and sort of rhyming with) “DART.” If you create a portmanteau of DART with Didymos or Dimorphos, you do wind up with DARTos – which rhymes with Artis.

Granted, that is a wild stretch of the imagination, but I found this tidbit most interesting (h/t reader/commenter Dean at STR):

[Coolio] also starred in the low budget “Armageddon” [and “Deep Impact”] rip off movie [as “Lucifer“] alongside Ice-T called “Judgement day” (1998, trailer) about deflecting a killer asteroid!

  • Coolio as Luther ‘Lucifer’

That’s that movie “Congress” isn’t it?




The Congress (2013 film)

The Congress is a 2013 live-action/animated science fiction drama film written and directed by Ari Folman, based on Stanisław Lem’s 1971 Polish science fiction novel The Futurological Congress. The film premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on 15 May 2013. Independent film distributor Drafthouse Films announced, along with Films We Like In Toronto, their co-acquisition of the North American rights to the film and a US theatrical and VOD/digital release planned for 2014. Robin Wright plays…

@AMcD It also links back to the film, S1M0NE, which I had referenced briefly in Part 1 of my W0RLDBU1LD1NG Series:


Simone (2002 film)

Simone (stylized as S1M0̸NE) is a 2002 American satirical science fiction film written, produced, and directed by Andrew Niccol. It stars Al Pacino, Catherine Keener, Evan Rachel Wood, Rachel Roberts, Jay Mohr, and Winona Ryder. The story follows a fading director creating a virtual actress to star in his films and the attempts he makes to keep her non-presence a secret as she becomes more famous. Simone garnered mixed reviews from critics but was a minor box-office hit, grossing $19.6 million…

Incidentally, I never got a chance to continue my series at POM, yet I had intended to post the following images at some point (as related to GANs) – and I think it is pertinent at this time (given the Bruce Willis “deep fake” ~ Deepcake ~ reveal):

See if you see any resemblance/resonance among these images (at the very least suggestive of a template/imprint, or implying perhaps an actual deep fake/digital twin presentation?) – notice the lips, the hair, the neckline, the attire, the colors:

From the film, S1M0NE (just as Simone asserts that she may pursue a career in politics):

From the testimony (of Ivanka Trump) to Congress regarding the January 6 “Insurrection” (invoking the Congressfilm above featuring Robin Wright — who sort of resembles Ivanka Trump):

Although it was reported that Ivanka Trump’s testimony occurred for about 8 hours, only about 3 minutes of said testimony was aired publicly on TV . . .

CNBC – 5 Apr 22

Ivanka Trump testified for 8 hours before House panel investigating Jan. 6 riot

Ivanka Trump, the daughter of ex-President Donald Trump, was in the White House during the Capitol riot, and was asked to get him to address the violence.

Ivanka’s testimony, which was conducted via a remote video hookup, ended around 6 p.m. ET.

“She’s answering questions,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the committee’s chairman, earlier about Ivanka, who served as senior White House advisor during her father’s presidency. She was in the West Wing on the day of the riot.

I mean, you know, not in broad, chatty terms, but she’s answering questions,” Thompson told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Something about Ivanka’s face and demeanor did not feel “human” to me . . . It kind of felt like a digital copy.

Speaking of deep fakes, I first heard of the Dart Center at Columbia when they staged an event called “Sandy Hook and Beyond” (including the prior week’s Boston Marathon B-ing) on April 22, 2013

“The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma continues a mission that began in 1991 when Frank Ochberg M.D., a psychiatrist and pioneer in the treatment of traumatic stress, collaborated with journalism faculty at Michigan State University and the Michigan Victim Alliance to establish a small program to assist journalism students in reporting on victims of violence with sensitivity, dignity and respect. That MSU program, the first of its kind, was funded by the Dart Foundation of Mason, Michigan. In 1994 the Dart Foundation established the annual Dart Award for Excellence in Reporting on Victims of Violence, at that time administered by MSU.” https://dartcenter.org/about/mission-history

Frank Ochberg

Frank Ochberg, M.D. is a founding board member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and recipient of their highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award. He edited the first text on treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and served on the committee that defined PTSD. Ochberg founded and secured the funding for the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, served as its first chairman and now is chairman emeritus of the Center. He helps journalists understand traumatic stress and he helps traumatic stress experts understand journalists.

He was associate director of the National Institute of Mental Health and director of the Michigan Mental Health Department. At Michigan State University, he is clinical professor of psychiatry, formerly adjunct professor of criminal justice, and adjunct professor of journalism.

Ochberg developed, with colleagues, the National Center for Critical Incident Analysis, Global Youth Connect (a young persons’ human-rights organization), Gift From Within (a charity for persons with PTSD), and the Committee for Community Awareness and Protection (responding to serial-killer threats). For the latter activity, he is the first physician to receive the Law Enforcement Medal of the Sons of the American Revolution. As a Red Cross volunteer, Ochberg has helped families at sites of earthquakes, floods, fires and aircraft disasters. He represents the Dart Foundation and directs their support of victimization programs around the world.

“The trajectory of critical incident analysis by Frank Ochberg

“This Handbook of Critical Incident Analysis gathers scholars from remarkably different disciplines who share a common quest. We recognize that certain newsworthy events explode into public awareness, dominate discourse, challenge our sense of equanimity and have the potential to live on as icons of an era. We seek a better understanding of these episodes so that we can define their elements, recognize their antecedents, anticipate their consequences, and gather evidence for scholars and interveners who will confront future incidents. Our work follows other organized efforts to analyze incidents, but emphasizes the creation of an academic enterprise, rather than the critique of crisis management from the perspective of public officials. Our quest, therefore, is the field of critical incident analysis itself. To create this interdisciplinary discipline we need a compendium of cases, an archive of data, an approach to analysis that includes science, history and other tools of the academic trades, and a common language…

“This distinguished professor argues forcefully and persuasively for a model of community disruption that reflects, in the aggregate, what PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) defines in the individual: a diagnosable disorder of thought, feeling and function that can be studied and ameliorated. But other scholars, including several chapter authors of this Handbook, contend that positive occurrences, such as the first manned mission to the moon, (those 3 memorable steps on lunar soil and the view of Earth as a beautiful but vulnerable celestial orb), fit the definition of “critical incident” and should be included in our list of cases for contemplation. Good or bad, these advocates argue, an incident is critical when it attracts widespread attention, changes the way we think or act, and lives on in the collective consciousness.” About | National Center for Critical Incident Analysis



Excellent offering. This is super important (well, to me it is).

I am recalling that you emailed me this information a few months ago, and I put it on the back burner. I will circle back soon with a more extensive reply. In the interim, two words come to mind when I see PTSD, trauma science, and critical incident analysis in the same context as asteroid deflection missions – DEEP IMPACT. It just happens to be a theme that Goro at Super Torch Ritual (STR) is also tracking – his graphic:

I suppose it is time for me to watch this film (Goro at STR mentions it often) – likely lots to decode:

The controllers really do want to keep us in emergency/trauma mode – perpetually:

My guess is there may be some hints and tells here:

. . . and here:

When I heard about the Double Asteroid Redirection Test it felt like a cover story to me. Seems so odd and Hollywoodesque.

Interesting stuff. Some of it feels like a stretch for sure but some not so much. Not sure how or if this all ties together but it’s interesting. @Stephers That’s some serious “impact” investment. LOL Seems a bit dramatic for just a ritual. But it is an odd program.

Regarding Coolio, he made an aural appearance two weeks ago in homeschool. My 10-year old was reading “Translation of the 23rd Psalm” (Joseph Addison) in an 1881 copy of Appleton’s Fifth Reader (very musty), which led us to the King James 23rd psalm, then to Gangsta’s Paradise. Interesting that the 23rd psalm is an avowal of how one is saved by one’s faith, which carry the person through the most dire circumstances, and reassure the person when thoughts of death are nagging. Per Coolio, all seems hopeless: the ultimate immersion in the material world. Interesting line: “I’m 23 now but will I live to see 24? The way things is goin’ I don’t know.”

And then there’s the movie Armageddon

“After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas will impact Earth in less than a month, NASA recruits a misfit team of deep-core drillers to save the planet.” Armageddon (1998) - IMDb

“The film was a commercial success, grossing $553 million worldwide against a $140 million budget and becoming the highest-grossing film of 1998… produced and directed by Michael Bay, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and released by Touchstone Pictures… “

“After a massive meteor shower destroys the Space Shuttle Atlantis and parts of Manhattan, NASA scientists discover they have eighteen days before an asteroid the size of Texas impacts Earth… They recruit Harry Stamper, a third-generation oil driller and owner of his own oil drilling company… Over twelve days, they train with skeptical professional astronaut Willie Sharp, who will pilot Freedom - one of the two shuttles to fly to the asteroid, the other being the Independence

“ On approach to their landing site on the asteroid, Independence is irreparably damaged by debris, and the shuttle crashes, killing all on board except Lev, Bear, and A.J. They embark in the shuttle’s Armadillo to find the Freedom crew, which landed 26 miles from its intended landing site on a plate of iron ferrite. When the drilling goes slower than predicted, Sharp reports to Mission Control that it is unlikely that Harry and his team will reach the depth necessary to split the asteroid before “Zero Barrier”, the point after which the two halves of the asteroid will impact Earth. Even though it might cause total mission failure, the President of the United States decides to remote detonate the bomb from Earth. After a vicious argument where Sharp calls Harry’s team the worst mistake in NASA history, the two agree to defuse the bomb and work together after Harry promises Sharp that he will reach the depth for the bomb…

“According to Bruce Joel Rubin, writer of Deep Impact, a production president at Disney took notes on everything the writer said during lunch about his script and initiated Armageddon as a counter film at Disney. Nine writers worked on the script… Then-producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, hired the succession of scribes for rewrites and polishes.[4][5] Astronomers would subsequently note that Deep Impact was more scientifically accurate.

“…Prior to Armageddon 's release, the film was advertised in Super Bowl XXXII at a cost of $2.6 million… Bay was quoted as having said: ‘We had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking…’ Bay admitted that the film’s central premise “that NASA could actually do something in a situation like this” was unrealistic. Additionally, the largest known Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA) is (53319) 1999 JM8, which is only 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) in diameter,[28] while the asteroid in the movie is described as being “the size of Texas”. Near the end of the credits, there is a disclaimer stating, “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s cooperation and assistance does not reflect an endorsement of the contents of the film or the treatment of the characters depicted therein.”[29]

The infeasibility of the H-bomb approach was published by four undergraduate physics students in 2011[30] and then reported by The Daily Telegraph in 2012:

“A mathematical analysis of the situation found that for Willis’s approach to be effective, he would need to be in possession of an H-bomb a billion times stronger than the Soviet Union’s “Big Ivan”, the biggest ever detonated on Earth. Using estimates of the asteroid’s size, density, speed and distance from Earth based on information in the film, the postgraduate students from Leicester University found that to split the asteroid in two, with both pieces clearing Earth, would require 800 trillion terajoules of energy. In contrast, the total energy output of “Big Ivan”, which was tested by the Soviet Union in 1961, was only 418,000 terajoules.”

Take the most recent example of this subgenre, “Don’t Look Up.” Released last year in theaters and on Netflix, writer-director Adam McKay’s unruly political satire is set off by two Michigan State University astronomers (Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio) who discover a comet that seems to have popped out of nowhere and within six months will collide with our planet hard enough to extinguish all life.”

@Jason_Bosch Ha, yes. I agree. To clarify . . . Even if and when I consider an event to be ritualistic and symbolically coded, I still think there are other agendas being implemented. If I had to speculate, when it comes to asteroids, I sense the astrophysical empiricists working for Empire send their spacecraft outward bound to covertly mine the space rocks (for classified projects). They want the material/nanomaterial embedded in the meteorites/asteroids. I think planetary defense is a cover story.

Found in lava, meteorites, and deep in the earth’s mantle, yellow-green peridot is the extreme gem

@jenlake The Armageddon imprint refers back to Bruce Willis, whose Deepcake deep fake (deep impact?) digital twin just happened to be announced 3 days following the DART (deep fake?) impact event. I always ask the question, “Why now”? It seems highly rituallstic to me given the timing.
