Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Hallowe'en Countdown 2018: London's Dragons, Druids, and Pumping Stations

The countdown this week is devoted to arcane secrets which lie in plain sight. We start in the streets of London, where for seven years, the brilliant and acerbic vlogger swilliamism (aka Samuel William) has explored the dark nooks and crannies of the UK's capital. During his lunch breaks from work, he peeks behind the white façades with his digital camera, and reveals unnerving little details.

Sam describes London's history with low key sarcasm. His videos have titles like: Where's Daddy's Pig?; Proud Taxpayer Day; Theft Appreciation Day; the eye-opening The Strange Mystical Horse and the companion video, The Strange Mystical Dead Horse; The Fresh Face of Fascism; Hello Data Subject; Very Nearly Grenfell; and A Day At The Arms Fair.

This vlogger's paranoia is not entirely joyless, like the time, inspired by fears of Santa Claus, he gave up Christmas to break his social conditioning. His main channel concentrates on the symbolism of London architecture, and he expresses his opinions more explicitly on his back-up channel.

In the videos above, Sam unveils the netherworld around London's financial sector, specifically the temple-like Isle of Dogs Pumping Station, which serves Canary Wharf. Follow swilliamism, and he will convince you that the whole metropolis, from the City to the suburbs, is a giant Illuminati theme park.

The vlogger has also gravitated toward St. Paul's Cathedral, with its suspicious classical dome instead of a Gothic spire (explained here), and its churchyard, which is effectively a Masonic Lodge. London's great cathedral apparently conceals another mystery: it is built on Ludgate Hill, over the ruins of a pagan Temple of the Moon.

The city of London, previously known as New Troy or Trinovantum, was renamed for King Lud (London = Lud's Fortress), and the king is said to be buried at Ludgate (derived from Old English, and not meaning 'Lud's Gate' as one would expect). The pagan hill is further said to conceal an earlier surprise, a prehistoric, buried Stonehenge-like stone circle, sleeping far beneath any lunar temple and today's cathedral. From Flame:
"Writing in Prehistoric London in 1925, E O Gordon said there was traditional evidence of two stone circles and at least 4 mounds in London. Research by other writers since then ... has led to speculation that London had at one point many Standing Stones and other places of worship, which presumably were destroyed or had Churches built on them from the time after the Saxon invasion of Britain in the 4th century AD, and the subsequent Saxon capture of the city in the 6th century AD. ... 
[One] of the most commonly accepted sites ... [includes] St. Paul's cathedral, a lunar site traditionally recognised as being ruled by the Moon Goddess and Goddess of Hunting, Diana. Consequently it has also been closely associated with the worship of the Stag and the Horned God. According to legend, as recorded by in 1136, seventy years after the Norman Conquest of England, a Welsh cleric named Geoffrey of Monmouth completed a work in Latin which he titled Historia Regum Britanniae, or History of the Kings of Britain. This a detailed narrative which begins with the Trojan diaspora which followed the fall of Troy. Geoffrey said that King Brutus (who gave his name to Britain), was guided by the goddess Diana to lead Britain's first inhabitants to the island, arriving around 1100 BC. Thus, it is worth speculating whether Brutus (Brwth) himself was connected with the Pagan site which once stood on St. Paul's Cathedral.

The site is also connected with the King Lud, who gave his name to the present day Ludgate Circus and Ludgate Hill, ... on which St. Paul's Cathedral stands. [The legendary British king] Heli (Beli Mawr in the Welsh) in about the year 113 BC ... [reigned and fathered] Lud ... [who] became King in 73 BC. Lud rebuilt the city of London that King Brutus had founded and had named New Troy, and renamed it Caerlud, the city of Lud, after his own name. The name of the city was later corrupted to Caerlundein, which the Romans took up as Londinium, hence London. At his death, Lud was buried in an entrance to the city that still bears his name, Ludgate. My intuition tells me that Ludgate Hill was a scared site for the Celts, probably because of [its] connections with Brutus and Lud.

The destruction of the Pagan temple at Ludgate Hill happened in 597 AD, when this sacred site of the Celtic Britons had the first St. Paul's Cathedral on Ludgate Hill - [built] by the Saxon King Aethelbert of Kent. However, after Aethelbert and one of his subordinate Kings Saeberht of Essex both died in 616 AD, the people of London reverted back to Paganism, and leading Christian clerics such as Mellitus where forced to flee the city. It would be another fifty years before Christianity once more took hold - meaning that London was a Pagan city up until the 7th century AD.

Apparently when the building of the present St. Paul's cathedral began in 1675, architect Sir Christopher Wren, discovered remains of the Stag Goddess temple in the foundations of the previous Catherdral destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666."
Sam claims that St. Paul's is aligned with London's houses of finance, via a mysterious marker called the London Stone. This suggests that magic, religion and money are causally connected to one another in the UK's capital.

As if to corroborate this, buried pagan history highlights another eerie possible coincidence: Princess Diana, named for the Roman Goddess of the Moon, was married in a London cathedral built over a pagan moon temple. She died in the Parisian Pont de l'Alma tunnel which is rumoured to have also been built on the site of a pagan moon temple. From Diana Speaks (the original text comes from Vigilant Citizen):
"Shortly after Diana was killed, Rayelan Allan (a researcher of esoteric history since the early 1970’s, who was also married to Gunther Russbacher, a deep cover CIA/ONI operative) wrote an article called 'Diana, Queen of Heaven'. The article was picked up by numerous newspapers across the United States and Europe. Several authors who have written books about the death of Princess Diana used Rayelan’s article as reference. However, no one fully understood the deeper meaning of the article. Therefore, Rayelan decided to expand it into a book. The book states that in pre-Christian times, the Pont de L’Alma area had been the site of a pagan temple of the goddess Diana and a direct gateway to heaven. Mindful of this safety net, the place was chosen by the Merovingian kings (AD 500-751) to fight their duels, with the loser going directly to paradise. 'Pont' means 'bridge' and 'Alma' means 'soul' and for Merovingians, the site was a bridge across the 'river of souls'. So, Pont de L’Alma, the site of the accident which killed Princess Diana, means 'Bridge of the Soul.'"
Tunnels are undoubtedly symbolic (you can see my related post here). But the claim that the tunnel was and is a spiritual portal to another dimension comes from Rayelan Allan, who is the publisher of Rumor Mill News. I have no idea if the area where Princess Diana died was the previous site of pagan worship, but the French word for 'soul' is âme, not alma, and the latter is a Latin adjective meaning 'nourishing,' 'nurturing,' or 'fostering.' The French tunnel where Diana died (and the nearby bridge of the same name) commemorate an 1854 battle in the Crimean War; in the Crimea, the word 'Alma' refers to the Alma River, named for the Crimean Tatarian word for 'apple.'

Similarly in London, an Illuminati or Masonic wedding, setting the stage for a later lunar sacrifice of Britain's beloved princess, makes for a compelling tale. Yet surely this must be conspiracists' idle chatter, since the pagan legends about St. Paul's were denied on 27 October 2014 by the Cathedral archaeologist, Dr. John Schofield. Dr. Schofield's traditional style and authoritative narrative could not be more different from the historical revisionism and oral history of the Internet. Each narrative has its own strengths, its own flaws, and its own truths.
