Now, normally I don't bother people with reading tea leaves of this sort, but today, I have to, because this one is so strange, and appears within days of other strange space news, that one begins to wonder. The tea leaves in question, which remain to be read, were sent by so many of you it isn't funny. It's safe to say, that this little story merited some of the highest numbers of people sending it to me as an article as I've seen in the nearly six years, now, since we upgraded this website. The tea leaves in question are NASA's new space station mission poster, and this one, it seems, is either an exercise in deliberate humor, or messages are being sent, or perhaps, a bit of both. Here's the article:

Next Space Station mission actually full of Jedi

Now, as one Mr. K.C. noticed, the composition of this poster has a particular allusion to a well-known Renaissance painting, the School of Athens:


Putting such a composition into the picture where the astronauts and cosmonauts are dressed like the Jedi knights from Star Wars does suggest not only a cosmic conflict, but a cosmological one, with Plato, of course, emphasizing the incorporal universals, and Aristotle the material, corporeal particulars. Interesting, too, this, in the context of Jedi knights and "the Force," George Lucas' thinly disguised version of the Egyptian Ma'at, able to do duty(some would argue) in both poles of the Plato-Aristotle dialectic. So what's the message - if any - here? We've found something cosmologically significant, and it's in space, and humanity gets to play interplanetary space policemen, the visible manifestation of Ma'at in the local celestial neighborhod, enforcing order? Well, in the light of yesterday's blog about Mr. Medvedev's curious television remarks, one wonders.... indeed, why do we need interplanetary policemen at all? Oh yea... they're nice to have around if you're busily promoting space commercialization... which might invite thieves, robbers, and pirates, in which case, who are the thieves, robbers, and pirates?...and we're back to square one.

But then there's the poster itself, which, when I saw it, raised my eyebrows even more, and most of the people that sent me the article, noticed the same things as well... First, theres the elements of the poster: (1) the astronauts/cosmonauts, (2) dressed as Jedi knights with light sabers, (3) a launching Russian booster, (4) which happens to be launching right next to an image of the Star Wars "Death star," (5) Planet Earth, (6) on the left side, upper left corner, some sort of spacecraft, which looks like an orbital telescope, (7) at the top, the international space station itself, and beneath that, a picture of the Planet Mars.

Now, so far, there are three prominent war/conflict references going on: the cosmonaut-Jedis, the Death Star, and the Planet Mars. Then there's the little blue deltoid logo in the center... the "patch" one may assume, with its own allusions to Mars...

Now, as if this isn't enough for our high octane speculations (don't forget yesterday's little replay of Medvedev), we now have this:

Obama adviser John Podesta's biggest regret: Keeping America in dark about UFOs

It is interesting that when President Bill Clinton assumed office, one of the first things he did was to order his confidant Webster Hubble to look into the UFO issue (and Area 51 as well), and that now, Podesta, with his UFO interest, is working in Hillary's presidential campaign.

So what's going on? We'll, here's my high octane speculation of the day... (It's so high octane that it's not safe to drive with this stuff in the tank): behind and above all the geopolitical wrangles on Earth, something else is going on concerning space, particularly when you look at who the two biggest contestants in the planetary geopolitical dance are: Russia, and the USA. Russia has been giving some rather interesting demonstrations lately, think of the USS Donald Cook, or more recently of the Ukrainian missile that "broke up" in flight, ostensibly due to a malfunction of an old part. Then again, Mr. Rogozin of Russia's space and military air defense also made recent remarks to the effect that Russia knew how to penetrate America's missile defences. And of course, there's the Ukraine. But behind all of this is a NASA poster with Soyuz space capsule blasting off on a Russian booster, with astronauts and cosmonauts wearing Jedi knight costumes, flying past the Death Star, with Mars in the background, and Mr. Medvedev wants the US to talk about ETs, or "we will," and Mr. Podesta regrets no disclosing (or is that really not being able to find the UFO secrets to disclose?)... Any way one slices it, there appears to be a deep story in the background here... and the story concerns "them"... Funny too, that Mr. Medvedev would urge the USA to make disclosure at a time when its moral stock, and worldwide opinion of its trustworthiness is so low, while Mr. Putin's, correspondingly, is rather higher...

See you on the flip side

    Looks like they’ve declared war on E.T. !

  2. Guygrr on February 17, 2015 at 2:36 am

    The force tells me it’s not Cold War 2.0 that they are gearing up for, but rather Cosmic War 2.0. The fact that the Russian in the poster is playing the part of the Sith Lord almost confirms my suspicion that the USA and Russia are using Cold War 2.0 as a cover to increase preparedness on a global scale. Of course both countries are still jockeying to come out on top of the other. It’s my belief that we are at the end of the 25,000 year cycle and Yahweh is planning to swing by earth for a Tower of Babel moment. There’s simply too much in the works these past 6 months…. Oh shit…Unless they are planning to use the threat of E.T. to control the new energy paradigm. Guess it could go either way. Better safe than sorry? Or maybe we should be Christ like and turn the other cheek? Maybe that’s the lesson we aren’t learning here. I’ll say it again, if you’re a peaceful alien civilization would you allow our species to join you given our predilections for destruction? However, maybe there’s too much on the line to just hope for a peaceful outcome if we lay down our arms. I just pray we don’t pull a Han and shoot first.

    • Guygrr on February 17, 2015 at 2:41 am

      I just noticed something on the mission patch, there’s earth, the moon, and mars all in blue space, but the next planet out, obviously Saturn, is in black space… Quarantine zone much?

  3. MadMax on February 16, 2015 at 12:41 pm

    Richard Hogland is going to “have a ball” trying to unravel all the symbolism in this new NASA poster!!


    • moxie on February 16, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      Something on mars.. in those structures, pyramids? So I see the 33, and ishtar on that poster. Hmm what else?

  4. Cassandane on February 16, 2015 at 9:03 am

    There does indeed seem to be a message of dominance and force here. The two hand gestures of the astronauts in front reminded me immediately of a Mithraic tauroctony and Cautes and Cautopates, one with his hand pointing up and the other with his hand pointing down. Taken together with all the light saber swords, the message could be: “Hey, there’s a lot more of us now, and we have technology and metaphysical powers.” There’s no bull, but in the modern English vernacular, that in itself could be a message.

    • Don B on February 16, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      Very similar to Masonic sign.

      • Cassandane on February 16, 2015 at 8:23 pm

        I expect it is – there are quite a few things that point to the Masononic organization being a successor to the Roman Mithras cult.

  5. Khobe on February 15, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    Must be the holographic blue beam project…ing all manner of interdimensional portals soon disclosing the joint space alien venture agenda near you. Look out for the all star spectacular premiere. Let’s roll out the brand new spaceport, Elon Musk is in the wings.

    There might not be a better opportunity to start spreading baptism & earth’s fables so widely in one shot. First impressions in alien encounters do matter.

    But seriously does anyone really know where we collectively stand here or how can we handle a bigger planetary imperialist takeover than the one by the psychopathic globalists? This a bugger. Does anyone have the latest from the cosmic war front?

  6. Alkimia on February 15, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    The base of the NASA logo appears to be sitting on an open book. Does this imply “they” are ready to reveal all or perhaps have either found a book or developed one in which they are following? NASA becoming an open book would be in keeping with the current trend identified in the the Doctor’s recent blogs.

    • DanaThomas on February 16, 2015 at 1:24 am

      An open book – under a pyramid…

      • Guygrr on February 17, 2015 at 2:53 am

        ie we found the book of destiny, we’re turning our Death Star on, and blasting a hole right through the quarantine zone

  7. basta on February 15, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    Particularly cheesy and rather embarrasssing Star Wars cosplay if you ask me. But what I find really interesting is tucking the Death Star into the shadows in the right side of the poster… where the moon should be.

    • Margaret on February 16, 2015 at 8:34 am

      Seems it’s tradition, Basta … just for fun … it turns out that cosplay using pop culture themes for ISS crew portraits is how they memorialize their missions … everything from the Matrix to Pirates of the Caribbean, Men in Black and in between. Serious in their mission but with a great sense of humor. Disregarding any hidden meanings, I just enjoyed seeing their family photos here: A Visual History of Cosplaying Astronauts

  8. DownunderET on February 15, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    Flight “patches” by NASA have always been “questionable”, and the ufology people just love to “dissect” the real meaning behind them. As for what’s really going on in space is anyone’s guess right now. BUT, the recent rumblings have been louder than normal, this would excite the ufology crown no end. Let’s say Russia does do “disclosure”, there would be ramifications that would rock the planet to it’s knees. But for what purpose would the so called “disclosure” be released, there has to be an agenda, or in other words qui bono !!!
    As we all know, they plan to get out there and mine the asteroids and the Moon for it’s minerals etc, but what if there’s more than just minerals, and the word that comes to mind is…..drum roll…..TECHNOLOGY, then the space race just got a little hotter. Make no bones about it, Russia IS in the race, and we are all waiting for the starting pistol to go off. Maybe they should have put a picture of a “dump truck” on the logo.

    • Robert Barricklow on February 15, 2015 at 1:37 pm

      No doubt the “race” has been on sometime. Perhaps, replete throughout the universe of life form artifacts. That there was a cosmic war that touché “our” solar system looks to be a “given”. What transpired in its aftermath is The question. Bu that there are artifacts left, and/or “purposed behind’ is also a given. Himmler perceived this and dedicated a secret cabal to find these and reengineer them. The “found & lost” are puzzling pieces. Are they using[or have been using] said “technologies and reaping benefits as we speak. Is the “announcement” to draft mass cannon fodder, to await “results” some signal released[accidently]?
      Not only do “we the people” have unknown questions/answers; even the elites have to be “in the dark”.

  9. Jon on February 15, 2015 at 1:06 pm

    The colors of the light sabers are also odd, not conforming to the usual “good guy – bad guy” colors, and the telescope-like space craft resembles the x-wing fighters of the Rebellion.

    Perhaps this is to be a pivotal mission in the ongoing saga of our place in the galaxy? With the US and Russia on the brink of (or already into it, actually) a war, we suddenly have to put all that aside and bond together to fight the alien menace, ala Ronald Ray-gun. (a B-movie re-Ron?)

    It is an unquestionable linking of the Jedi Rebellion vs the Empire meme to our next mission. Simple marketing by/to Sci-fi geeks or deeper meaning? (Most likely both).

    The interesting thing is where do the Transhumanists fit into all this? Their attitude and “religion,” if you will, is more akin to the Empire than the Jedi. Are they collaborators undermining the Rebellion and ready to build the Clone Army?

    The elite have been “kind of” following the script given by Von Braun, but whether that info was a slip on his part or just another layer of the plan, who knows?

    This, in conjunction with all the serious talk of aliens from major leaders, movement out of oil stocks by major companies and groups, the serious mainstream announcements around cold fusion, etc.; do lead one to suspect that something fairly big is in the works.

    The similarity between Iapetus and the Death Star is just too close to be some strange quirk – there is definitely something there. And the NASA “swoosh” around Earth on the poster also resembles the rings of Saturn.

    Time will tell.

  10. DanaThomas on February 15, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    As a member of the Star Wars Generation (now approaching the venerable age of Master Yoda) I would like to add a couple of remarks. The Jedi Knight is often seen as the epitome of the “just warrior” and yet… it was none other than former Jedi Darth Vader who was in charge of the Death Star. These Space Templars were quite fully immersed in the world of power politics with all the temptations of the “dark side” and quite happy to indulge in Realpolitik games with all manner of commercial and political players. “Mind tricks” and advanced fighting arts were useful but, like the powers of Herbert’s “Bene Jezerit”, were a double-edged weapon when wielded without the necessary wisdom.
    In the story suggested by this poster the victor will get no beautiful princess. These are “boys with toys” armed to the teeth. Against whom?
    Now all the Russian-American cooperation expressed here would be just fine. Then there is the Japanese astronaut who seems to have a particularly sardonic expression. As we can see in the collection of logos on Wikipedia, the 46th expedition next year has a Union Jack to indicate the British Astronaut, but there is no Rising Sun for the 45th.
    And what about the Death Star (“ours” or somebody else’s?) and the double reference to Mars: once in the bigger image, complete with the “gash”, and once as a sliver in the central logo?
    As for the logo shaped like an acute-angled pyramid (or perhaps more than one pyramid) resembling the ones built by Russian researchers, there seem to be four “celestial spheres” above the Earth. If the second sphere is the Moon, what is the first sphere where the orbit of the Space Station is presumably located? Perhaps the barrier beyond which people are apparently likely to have “psychic experiences”? The third one is a sliver of Mars, and the fourth one either a star or a planet…

    • Robert Barricklow on February 15, 2015 at 1:08 pm

      The Jedi Knights were a vested interest within the power structure whose culture was spiritual in nature; yet hierarchical in structure, with Master Yoda representing the pinnacle of being one with the force. The emphasis on teaching/learning the way. In short, religious in practice.
      An ideology, if you will, that was not above using deadly force, to impose their will.
      The Jedi were a tool of the empire; whose pinnacle symbolized the Empire’s existence[prime directive]: Power Corrupts; absolute power, corrupts absolutely.
      Darth Vader being a Jedi that, in essence, symbolized the teacher/master journey.

  11. Aridzonan_13 on February 15, 2015 at 10:26 am

    Any False Flag ET arrival event, would have to be global in scope and have the cooperation of several governments. Question is, does that level of cooperaton / PTB control exist? It may.. But, the recent push back from the O Admin has me believing that the threat of Russian Disclosure has them against the ropes for the first time. They are scrambling to defend against this most potent Russian threat.

  12. marcos toledo on February 15, 2015 at 9:49 am

    It’s Battlestar Galactica-Star Wars vs Star Trek the wars of conquest,exploitation vs seeking strange new civilizations and trade in ideas and goods. Will be smash and grab or art, trade, intellectual expansion or enslavement and genocide. As the words at the end of Things To Come which shall it be.

  13. Robert Barricklow on February 15, 2015 at 9:48 am


    An Alien Boston Tea Party writ global[false-flag]?

    Or, have they received a message?

    Are they testing the waters, to see what phase of the agreed upon fable, to roll-out next?

  14. Margaret on February 15, 2015 at 8:59 am

    Hmmm … all the more reason to wonder about the timing of the PRGs’ recent White House petition for Congressional Hearings on ETs, the Corbett report “How to Fake an Alien Invasion” just ahead of the Disclosure Canada campaign, which has several conferences scheduled this spring across the country, and other major US conferences this year about ETs, exopolitics, technology, and consciousness. It sure seems like something big is in the works … another psyop being rolled out? … or a distraction to look in one direction while the action is happening in another direction? It will be interesting to see what memes will be showing up in the media this year …

  15. Gail on February 15, 2015 at 6:20 am

    I think Medvedev is taking the “p,” and this statement Joseph, is more accurate : “or is that really not being able to find the UFO secrets to disclose?” I think this looks like a set up for now, we are yet again being programmed, imagine, false flag operations in Space, they must be drooling at the prospects! 9/11 will be put on the back page!
