Guided By Ezekiel (Inshallah)

As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the ground beside each creature with its four faces. This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel. As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the creatures faced; the wheels did not change direction as the creatures went. Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.” Ezekiel 1:15-18

The bible is full of messages and we have already seen that Ezekiel 1 presents rich pickings. It’s just a matter of framing the right question.

Ezekiel, where is the Xmas Epic going this year?

I’m sure I am not the only one who has been tormented with sleepless nights, trying to interpret these words.

Speak! (or pass me a note)

I research deeper:
Lets see, the throne can be on top of the wheels

The throne inside the wheels (underneath the spaceship)

the throne,
the double rainbow (all the way)
the four-faced creatures,
the wheels,
the awesome rims,
the eyes,
the eyes,
the eyes

What does it mean?
I read the text.

I read the commentary.

I wear the T-shirt

I read the sub-text:

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean?

What does it mean?
Wheels, eyes and numbers seem important.

But wait. Listen. A message.

I see some sort of machine

…with Ezekiel wheels!

Is it a portal to a wormhole to connect Jodie Foster to an alien intelligence?
Where is the answer? It turns out that it’s buried a Google digits deep into π. A code!

Yes, the message is written into the very fabric of the universe. Part of the very plot written into to Carl Sagan’s book “Contact” that was cut out of the movie. The message contains instructions on how to build “the machine”. I am driven to build the machine.

Following the instructions, a complex arrangement of an early 80’s Italian wheel synchronized with a Garmin 500 is assembled. Some random lettering added at precise locations.

Time to power up the machine.
At 90% power, the shuddering starts. “OK to go, OK to go, OK to go…” Jodie starts intoning.
(“OMG Its full of eyes”)

What was the question again? Oh yes,
Ezekiel, give us guidance, where should the Xmas Epic go this year?

    Not since the Bahi visit of 1972 have I felt so ethereal………the dandelions!

    Okay, Zeke
    So I’m meant to respond here! The eyes have it.

    It’s hard enough to sleep with all those kids running around the caravan park, let alone with that spooky Jodie imagining machines.

    This could be the start of something … biblically themed tours. Book of Job is my favourite, but there would be considerable attrition. And I’m not buying coffee at Sodom. Psalms would be lovely, still waters.

    Is there a planned time? Even a guess? Or would you like suggestions, oh interpreter-of-prophets?

    It seems Ezekiel has spoken but what exactly did he say? Was it Melb-Narooma, Narooma-Melb or Melb-Narooma-Melb?

    I blame Terence Malick. Mark’s not really ever recovered from seeing ‘The tree of life’. He talks (mutters) about it endlessly. Mostly in barely audible, pseudo-meaningful aphorisms. Can you imagine what it’s like for his poor students when he stops mid-lecture and whispers that they should, “Did deep in the suitcase of courage and place all distress in the box next to the ambiguity”?

    And they can do nothing about it except wonder if it will be in the exam.

    I am here in tears from laughing so much, what are you on indeed!!! You clearly have become more than 50% bike, and have way too much time – Leah, quick you need to do something NOW!!!
