Tonight, Tuesday the 12th of October at midnight, the daring rescue efforts of the teams of mining experts in Chile will bring to the surface the first of 33 trapped miners. Of course midnight tonight is also known as October 13th! Three different rescue shafts were being drilled in this effort to bring the trapped miners to the surface. We’re working on verifying the fact that the first successful attempt came after 33 days of drilling, an attempt by the second team of experts. This timing appears to be verified in this news article : http://www.thestate.com/2010/10/08/1504189/escape-shaft-nearly-reaches-chiles.html
The Canadian team ran into difficulties about a week and a half ago and were delayed in their efforts. The initial rescue effort was also unsuccessful in reaching their target.
The rescue pod, essentially a reinforced steel cage, has been given the name “Pheonix”. A Globe and Mail article on the rescue effort published earlier today headlined “Mine about to give ‘birth’ to 33 trapped Chileans”. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/americas/mine-about-to-give-birth-to-33-trapped-chileans/article1752567/
What exactly are the mystery schools up to? Can this be anything but an insult to the sheople?
Update : First miner rescued at 12:11 local time at the minesite.
Chilean President Sebastián Piñera mentions that today, October 13th, is the “magic number”, spoken shortly after the first miner reaches the surface.
2:56 AM mine-site time – BBC announces that 3 different Pheonix capsules are being used in the rescue effort. Pheonix 1 was a prototype, Pheonix 2 is currently being used, and Pheonix 3 will replace unit #2 if any problems arise.
33 miners rescued after 33 days
Rescued using the “Phoenix” rescue capsule
The company is Layne Christensen Co…. of Mission Woods, Kansas (about 5 miles from me)
They also do sub contracting work in Afghanistan, which means they’re tied in.
Their company logo is the all-seeing eye:
Their revenue is about a quarter of a billion / year
Their stock is up today by almost 5% (never underestimate a clever marketing campaign):
Here’s their official press release:
Their president is Andrew B. Schmitt and he makes at least $1 million a year at Layne alone, but is also director of Unitog (the uniform company) and Reynolds Transport (a trucking outfit he incorporated), both here in KC.
Lastly, I find it interesting that this melodramatic charade to save human lives was not in such a rush that they didn’t have time to stop for photo ops with the special drill and rescue capsule, even allowing the daughter of one of the trapped miners to get inside of the special tube and make sure it was “comfortable”. Reminds me of all those pity-pics we see of starving children in Africa. I’m sure that if I ever saw a starving child the first thing I’d want to grab is my camera…
Did you see that 69 days from today (the number of days they were trapped as well) ,October 13th, is December 21st – the last day before the sun is lost for on the horizon for 3 days – before being risen and reborn on December 25th…69 = “As Above, So Below” – yin-yang – the universal man – the brotherhood of man – salvation by works…
That’s interesting…I was looking at this video a second ago and felt that the symbolism seemed relevant. The 9th guy to get taken out of there, wearing a shirt with an upside down five-pointed star. He was in the main picture about the story on MSN’s home page.

And The Chilean President confirmed it:
Just gets more and more interesting…
– Copiapó was said to be the site of an unidentified flying object sighting in 1864. According to researcher Chris Aubeck,  the story first appeared in print in the March 18, 1868 issue of the newspaper El Constituyente, which was itself cited in the journal The Zoologist then in Lo!, a 1931 book by American investigator Charles Fort. Fort’s account was the basis of a later account in Anatomy of a Phenomenon (1965) by ufologist Jacques Vallee.
– Aubeck reports that the original newspaper article described the object as “an enormous bird.” (Phoenix?-SDW)
– It’s a copper and gold mine. Add blood and you have 3 of the main ingredients of the so-called Philosopher’s Stone.
– The Phoenix rescue capsule is actually a German invention: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dahlbusch_bomb

– And here’s some historical background of the Phoenix, but the gist is the similarity of the Phoenix when related to the Osiris/Horus myth (death and rebirth) and it’s connection to the Sun, the City of the Sun (Heliopolis) and the Temple of the Sun. In the Chinese version of the Phoenix the bird is at times paired with a dragon (female to the dragon’s male) and it’s rare appearance signifies peace and prosperity, especially when a new ruler ascends to the throne.
Background Mythology of the Phoenix:
Setting forth from Arabia he conveys his father, they say, to the temple of the Sun plastered up in myrrh, and buries him in the temple of the Sun. He conveys him thus. He forms first an egg of myrrh as large as he is able to carry, and then he makes trial of carrying it, and when he has made trial sufficiently, then he hollows out the egg and places his father within it and plasters over with other myrrh that part of the egg where he hollowed it out to put his father in, and when his father is laid in it, it proves (they say) to be of the same weight as it was; and after he has plastered it up, he conveys the whole to Egypt to the temple of the Sun. Thus they say that this bird does.
The phoenix is a bird that is found in India. After it has lived for 500 years, it goes to the cedar forests of Lebanon and bathes in the fragrance from the trees, then signals the priest in the city of Heliopolis (the city of the sun), who prepares an alter. The phoenix flies to the city, alights on the alter, and ignites a fire that completely consumes it, leaving only ash. The next day the preist finds a worm in the ashes, on the second day a small bird, and on the third day the full-grown phoenix, completely renewed. The phoenix greets the priest and returns to its home in India.
The Epiphanius version follows the same basic story line, but adds a few details. The phoenix is the most beautiful bird, more beautiful even than the peacock. It is colored like precious stones, and has a crested head and feet like fire. It lives among the cedars of Lebanon for 500 years, neither eating or drinking, being fed only by the wind. After this time it goes to the priest at Heliopolis and burns itself up. The next day there is a small bird in the ashes; on the third day the phoenix is fully restored and returns home.
The Chinese phoenix, also called “Feng Huang”, is the head of all birds. Feng is male and Huang female, while paired with dragon it is female. Feng Huang has rare appearance, with colorful plumage. Many legends tell that it has a body of pheasant, while feathers like that of peacocks, with wings of roc.
Chinese phoenix is also an immortal bird whose rare appearances signify the peace and prosperity, especially a new ruler ascent to the throne. It never old or dies, belongs to the fire in Five Elements. It is said that phoenix nirvana and rebirth out of ash, symbolize the constant striving spirit.
Images of ancient birds have appeared in China for 7,000 years, with the earliest historic piece with phoenix was a silk painting discovered in a tomb of the warring states period.
Down the ages, Chinese “long” and dragon are the traditional totems embedded with people’s blessing and hope and left deep imprint in Chinese civilization. Some are even combined the dragon and phoenix together to hope the harmony and happiness of marriage.
