By Mark Grant/A Tale of Two Synchronicities – Mapping Hidden Event Horizons
That’s lightning striking the very top of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican.
And not just on any day. This happened on February 11th, 2013, a mere few hours after Pope Benedict became the first Pope in 600 years to resign. How very odd, that something like this would happen on such an historic day. According to various reports, it actually struck there twice. Go ahead and click on the image, if you want to see a short video of the event.
But if this is true, then surely there ought to be various other photos and videos of the Vatican dome being struck online – since it is one of the most photographed buildings on the planet. Apparently 3,8 million people visited the Vatican in 2005.
Let’s crunch some numbers then. Assume that on average 4 million people a year go there. That works out to 11,000 people a day, many of whom will be toting cameras and smart phones with video cameras You would think there would be a ton of pics from people online, as in, “Hey, I was at St. Peter’s Square, and lightning struck!” Likewise with lightening hitting all of those other major sites that tourists go to — if this ‘rebuttal’ has any substance at all.
I couldn’t find any such evidence. But then again, maybe I didn’t look in the right places. So, to those who believe this explanation, let the rest of us know your findings. I will be happy to post them here.
Alternatively, of course, the lightning strike could be a sign.
If so, what can we infer? It seems obvious that this ‘macrosync’ was choreographed by someone who (a) has the ability to manipulate the weather to the point that it can direct when and where lightening occurs and (b) who wanted to make a statement to many people that ‘it’ knew what was going on around St. Peter’s Square on that VERY historic day.
Now, think about this: If the lightning strike was ‘meant to be’ seen, then the likely target audience is much greater than 1 billion Catholics, since the Pope’s resignation was global news.
One question I have learned to ask is this:
‘*If* an event was targeted for discreet intervention, then might a related future event also be synced? I have learned that asking this question often leads to very fruitful results, or what I call ‘relational’ design..
Here’s how that idea translated to me, in this case:
“If the resignation of Pope Benedict was targeted for intervention, then might there also be another strong hint of intervention relating to the election of the new Pope, Francis I?” In other words, the connecting link in this case was a shared theme – the ending of one Papal reign, and the beginning of another.
When I find evidence of this sort of thing, I think of it as ‘relational’ design. It’s as if the designeris carrying on a conversation. Surely enough, it took me all of about a minute to find such evidence,’, through an event that took place in Pope Francis’ homeland, Argentina.
It turns out that the new Pope is a hardcore fan of the Argentine soccer club, San Lorenzo. So much so, that in 2008 he became a member of the official fan club and was given ID number 88235. On the day he was elected Pope, members of the fan club blasted his ID membership online. Little did they know that they were setting the table for another macrosync.
Later that day the winning numbers for the Argentina national lottery was 8235, as shown in the photo below…
And you can bet that got people’s attention.
If this is the second part of a two-part message, then the designer, who demonstrated the ability to control the weather at the Vatican in the first case, has now shown that it has the ability to infiltrate one of the most closely guarded industries known to man – the gaming industry.
In this case we can be assured thatalmost all of the 40 million Argentinians would have heard that news, and, that the news would have spread throughout the surrounding region quickly, significantly increasing the number of those who heard the news.
We may also ask, “What are the odds?!” Such a common phrase when it comes to this topic…
It seems that the chance odds are 1 in 5,000.
Of 10,000 four-digit combinations, a match of the first four OR last four digits of Pope Francis’s ID would have been equally striking, 8823 or 8235. This works out to 2 chances in 10,000 possibilities, or 1 in 5,000.
But this only tells part of the story.
One way of looking at this part of the equation is that there are a little over 200 nations in the world. Since 200 is a nice round number, let’s go with that.
By this measure, the chance that the lotto result we are considering would occur on the day that Pope Francis was elected, in his country, is therefore about 1 in 5,000 x 1 in 200. Or, 1 in a million.
Maybe we would have been almost as impressed, if the same numbers came up in the Italian lottery. That would mean two countries qualified, and the odds would have been cut to1 in 500,000.
Either way: Fat chance.
And so it could be argued, on the grounds of improbability, that the ‘designer’ wanted to make two statements – one before potential audience in the billions, and the second, to one numbering in the tens of millions, but possibly more, if news of the lotto results made the rounds in Latin America.
When one thinks in these terms, it could be said that the ‘designer’ was making a couple of ‘big’ statements on these occasions, through acts of discreet intervention. Oftentimes, I have found that when this sort of thing arises, other hints of the improbable are found nearby.
