You Have Seven Days....
You Have Seven Days:
The Secrets of The Ring
Deep below the ground in a tomb like well, a terrible secret has been drowned. A child with supernatural abilities shunned and condemned to death at the decision of her adoptive step-mother.
She has gone mad with frightening visions, and the uncontrollable terror she feels has led her to only one conclusion. The little girl must die, and the well shall be her baptismal drowning pool.
If you have seen the 2003 film, The Ring, then you already know the tale of the little girl named Samara and the macabre curse that awaits anyone who views the tape she has made using her uncanny mental abilities. A curse which brings death to all those who watch the abstract work, with the phone call promise of "You have seven days". Of course, this means that since you watched the cryptic film, you now have seven days before you are to die. And thus the curse is fulfilled that all may know that terrible fate of the little girl named Samara. Trapped deep within a well, and drowned because of her mothers hateful actions.
The little girl escapes in spirit by the use of her strange psychic ability to transfer her thoughts onto blank tape, and once people begin to watch the short film, and share the spookiness with friends, the curse is passed on and Samara may claim their souls so that she will no longer be alone.
With the release of The Ring Two this weekend, I thought it was time to write this article on the true secrets of the ring. A secret that cannot be kept to ones self, but must be passed on to others if there is to be any safety for those who know of the terrible truth behind the story.
For any of us who look into history at all, we will notice that the little girls name, Samara, is filled with a secret in of itself. For this is the title of the first civilization in history known as Sumeria. A society which was erected pre-Egypt, and which lasted for thousands of years until its eventual assimilation into the culture of Babylon, and its inevitable fall. The ring itself, other then being the shape of the well and the ring of a telephone, was the symbol of the sun in Egypt. With a snake encircling the winged orb to represent the sun god Atum-Ra, and the undying icon of immortal life.
The symbol of the winged sun disk, with circling serpent, has been a prime symbol of religions and secret societies since the dawn of human culture.
There is another important connection of Rings with the 19th Century composer Richard Wagner (1813-1883) .Wagner, who was a brilliant musician, was also a devout racist and anti-Semite who spoke out numerous times about his hatred for the Jewish people as a whole, as well as his belief in a superior Aryan race. The composer did little to hide the facts of his racism, and made it well noted in his essays and musical compositions. He used his orchestrated pieces as subtle racial metaphors that depicted the "lesser" races in stereo-typical situations.
In 1850 he published an essay under a pseudonym, 'Judaism In Music'. Within this essay he expressed that he believed Christianity had been attacked and manipulated by the Jews, writing: "Judaism is the evil conscience of our modern civilization." In another essay, 'Know Thyself', He wrote, ". .if the Jew comes tinkling with his bell of paper [money], (our nation) throws its savings at his feet, and makes him in one night a millionaire.."
At the same time he released his controversial Judaism In Music essay, he was hard at work on what would become one of his most well recognized musical compositions, entitled 'THE RING'. Wagner also greatly helped in promoting a book that was published through a friend by the name of Arthur de Gobineau. He was a French racial theorist who authored the work, 'The Inequality of the Races', which went on to gain wide spread acceptance throughout Europe thanks in part to Wagner's respected reputation.
Not only was Wagner anti-Semitic, but he condoned violent anti-semitism. After a Jewish massacre by the Russians in 1881, Wagner was quoted as remarking: "That is the only way it can be done -- by throwing these people out and thrashing them."
In his well received musical epic, The Ring, Wagner portrayed the Aryans as a superior class of Norse gods and nobles, while portraying the race of the Jewish people as a lowly, greedy, lying, thieving, and corrupt social group, that should be considered as less then human.
He expressed that the Jews are a cursed group of demons and goblins, and the character of Alberich, the greedy merchant Jew, becomes a sexed craze beast who lusts after and seeks to contaminate the pure blood of Aryan maidens. He ends up sacrificing his lust for sex in order to acquire mass amounts of gold, and to transform himself into the invisible controller of the world. It is a tale filled with Norse mythology, and the timeless interpretations of the battle between good and evil. It is clear in The Ring, and other works, that Wagner was of the personal belief that the Jewish race was the cause for all the woes and strife of the world, while the Aryans were the saviors of humanity and the only way for civilization to become a pure bloodline.
Though he died five years before his apprentice was born, Richard Wagner became one of the key inspirations to a young artist by the name of Adolf Hitler. He was considered not only a genius of musical composition, but a political hero that eventually helped to popularize the racist ideology of Nazi Germany. Hitler was so inspired by the deep symbolic overtures and racial metaphors that were rampant within the works of his idol, that he even compared himself to the hero's of his muse's works, and the Nazi party would play the compositions of Wagner while going into battle. Lush parades of propaganda were held for the Nazi party, with the themes of The Ring playing heavily over loud speakers in the background.
Adolf Hitler, in his study of Wagner and the religion of Theosophy, invisioned a world where a secret race of Aryan supermen lived within the inner-Earth; And while he feared them, he thought of himself as the totem which would bring these ancient gods back into the spotlight and their rightful place as the visible controllers of the planet.
And as The Ring and other Wagner works were a constant inspiration to Hitler in his rise to power, and his demise, perhaps it was The Ring which also gave Hitler the notion to popularize the symbol of the Olympic rings when the festivities were held in Germany, 1936.
The games became a celebration of the Nazi party under Hitler's rule, and in his obsession with Norse and Greek mythology, Hitler set himself up as the "Zeus" of the games. He watched over the various festivities as would a judgmental Roman Emperor attending the events at the Coliseum.
The Olympic rings were not designed until 1913 by the French founder of the International Olympic Committee, and father of the modern day Olympics movement, baron Pierre de Coubertin. They were supposed to represent the first five Olympic games, but the symbol was put on hold after Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in Sarajevo, triggering World War I.

Riefenstahl, the “Olympia” filmmaker who also chronicled Hitler’s rise to power, had the emblem of the rings carved for immortality into stone at the altar and the ancient Greek city of Delphi. This helped to establish the myth that the rings were an older symbol dating to the first Olympic games going back over two millennia. The new five ringed symbol of the Olympic games became a reason for celebration in Nazi Germany,1936, and have been used as the emblem of the games ever since Hitler had them officially introduced.
All this being said, you might wonder what this has to do with the motion picture, THE RING. The symbolism behind the historical ring is evident, and we didn't even get to talk about the significance of the rings of Saturn, or the Lord of the Rings books, and the water from The Ring movies representing the water of the Age of Aquarius. Nor did we get to get to discuss how the old nursery rhyme of "Ring around the rosy, pocket full of poesy, ashes, ashes, we all fall down", is actually talking about the Black Plague, the Catholic rosary, and the burning of diseased bodies.
Perhaps that will be saved for another time.
In the meantime, if you're going to go see the Ring Two this week, keep in mind the subversive secrets we have shared here. And ask yourself if there is a deeper meaning behind The Ring films. Are there actually secrets so deep and powerful that it could be considered a curse to know of their existence? Can this curse only be lifted when we share the knowledge with others?
I viewed The Ring 2 last night, and all I can say is that you might want to wait until it comes out on DVD. It wasn't nearly as powerful as the first film, and fell far short of any expectations that fans of the first movie might have built up. But, this film, and the curse it is, ends adequately in the final scenes, and fans of Stephen King might be pleasantly surprised by a twist cameo that shows up near the end of the film.
What I urge you, if you have seen the films, is to think about the deeper ring that we have discussed. The curse of the well, and the vision of the rabbit hole that leads us deep beneath the visible surface of things. The symbolic history that creates the myths and struggles of today. But beware! When you peer into the abyss, the abyss looks back into you.
You have seven days.....

Thanks Joe. I appreciate that..I know it's a little rushed, and a little sloppy/incomplete in some parts, but i thought it was decent enough to post around the net a little bit..
And hopefully it does make some people think about the symbolic connections between Sumeria, Wagner, and the Ring movie..
I got into a 6 page argument/discussion with a guy at this board
about this article!! (Maybe some of you AO guys could sign up over there too.
The Plan X forums are kinda like you guys, though much smaller, and just getting started. I think some AO members might enjoy some of the conversation over there..)
There is alot more symbolism to the Ring over at the Plan X forum..
And if you do go over there, my name is Thunderdome. The guy i'm arguing with is named Android. I kinda get pissed at him, but he'd been badgering me for like 50 posts strait, so i finally got fed up with it and yelled at him a little bit...
And Joe, you should just wait until Ring 2 comes out on DVD man. It's not a bad film, but better renting then seeing at the theatres..

Again, more good Ring symbolism, as well as many other good topics of conversation!:
This is a tale of Rings. The Ring with no beginning or end. One such historical ring, of great significance, are the Rings of Saturn. To understand why Saturn is such a prominent planet, and mythological god, one must look further into groups such as the Bohemian Grove.
Some researchers even believe that the worship of Saturn was incorporated into marriage ceromonies, and that this partially accounts for the origins of the wedding ring.
"From the time of Moses till the time of the prophet Hezekiah, a period of seven hundred years or more, the Hebrews were idolaters, as their records show. The serpent was reverenced as the Healer of the Nation; they worshipped a bull called Apis, as did the Egyptians; they worshipped the sun, moon, stars, and all the hosts of heaven; they worshipped fire, and kept it burning on an altar, as did the Persians and other nations; they worshipped stones, revered an oak-tree, and bowed down to images; they worshipped a virgin mother and child; they worshipped Baal, Moloch, and Chemosh (names given to the sun), and offered up human sacrifices to them, after which, in some instances, they ate the victims."
Sarah Titcomb, Aryan Sun Myths (1889)
BRITONS. The gods of the ancient Britons. Taramis (the father of the gods and master of thunder), Teutats (patron of commerce and inventor of letters), Esus (god of war), Belinus (= Apollo), Ardena (goddess of forests), Belisarna (the queen of heaven and the moon. 1
CARTHAGINIAN GODS. Urania and Moloch. The former was implored when rain was required. 2
“Ista ipsa virgo [Urania] c?lestis pluviarum pollicitatrix.”—Tertullian.
Moloch was the Latin Saturn, to whom human sacrifices were offered. Hence Saturn was said to devour his own children. 3
CHALDEANS. The seven gods of the Chaldeans. The gods of the seven planets called in the Latin language Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Apollo [i.e. the Sun], Mercury, Venus, and Diana [i.e. the Moon].
Genesis 10:10 states that Babel was the beginning of Nimrod's Kingdom. "Saturn" was the name given to the pagan worship of the Babylonian ruler Nimrod, who was known as the GOD OF THE CHALDEAN MYSTERIES. The name Saturn in Chaldee is pronounced "Satur" but in Aramaic it is spelled "Stur" as shown in the book The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop. "Stur" has the numerical value of "666." "Saturn" means "The Hidden One," which relates that this whole pagan religion is HIDDEN -- secret. In Greek, Saturn was known as "Kronos," which means "TIME." (Saturn was given a day of TIME in the pagan week -- Satur-day.) In Egypt, Saturn was known as Apis -- the bull god of Memphis. The golden calf at Mt. Sinai was none other than the image of Apis, the bull of Memphis. After the Israelites made this golden calf, a false feast was declared to honor YEHOVAH:
Human sacrifice (Deut:18:10) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, Witchcraft or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (Deut:18:11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Let us now take a look at MOLECH, the god the Israelites sacrificed their children to.
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. (Lev:18:21)
Molech means "king". Other spellings are: Baal Moloch, Milcom, Moloch.
Molech was the sun god (Saturn) of the Cannanites/Ammonites
Molech has a variety of names given from the surrounding cultures. We shall find that all these different names are indeed the same god.
Siccuth/Sakkuth (means-king Amos:5:26)
Remphan (Egyptian name for Saturn)
Many of the Israelites sacrificed their infants to this god in the valley of Hinnom which received also the name of the Valley of Tophet. He was probably also identified with Baal, a sun or fire god of Sumerian origin.
Sun or Fire god (Saturn). Demon of unwilling sacrifice. Shape of a bull-headed colossus, sometimes as a crocodile. In the Kabbalistic tradition, Moloch, together with Satan, was the first of the ten evil Sephiroth.
Other names include:
Assyrian-Babylonian (Malik), Palmyra; Central Syria (Malach-bel), Phoenicians (Malik-Baal-Kronos), Carthaginian religion (Baal Hammon), Crete (Minotaur), Sepharvites (Adrammelech and Anammelech)
Was introduced from Ammon during the seventh century B.C.
Moloch was worshiped by the Hebrews, until the destruction of all the idols by Josiah in 622/21 BCE. (2 Kings 23:10)
Solomon built an altar to Molech on the Mount of Olives. (1 Kings 11:7)
Manasseh sacrificed his son, by making him “pass through the fire,” as did King Ahaz.
Not every combined form of melech ('king') in a name links an individual with Moloch, however (cf Abimelech)
Baal is identified with Molech (Jer. 19:5). Means, master or lord.
Moloch was an old Canaanites idol, called by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians Melkarth, Baal-melech, Malcom, and other such names, and related to Baal, a sun-god worshipped, like Kronos and Saturn, by the sacrifice of children. It was represented by a brazen statue, which was hollow and capable of being heated, and formed with a bull's head, and arms stretched out to receive the children to be sacrificed. From the time of Ahaz, children were slain at Jerusalem in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and then sacrificed by being laid in the heated arms and burned.
More on Roman God Saturn:
The dark Egyptian serpent god Set, has been credited with being the historical origins of Satan/Setan. But as well, the planet Saturn is a very close verbalization to Satan.
