Phoenix (mythology)

Phoenix (mythology), legendary bird that lived in Arabia. The phoenix consumed itself by fire every 500 years, and a new phoenix sprang from its ashes. In ancient Egypt the phoenix represented the sun. Early Christian tradition adopted the phoenix as a symbol of internal linkimmortality and resurrection.

Phoenix (city, Arizona), capital city of Arizona, located on the Salt River in the south central part of the state. Its population is 983,403 (1990). Almost two-thirds of Arizona's population lives in the metropolitan area. Phoenix sits on the eastern edge of the Sonoran Desert. A commercial, manufacturing, financial, tourist, and retirement center, Phoenix serves as a distribution point for the agricultural products of the irrigated Salt River valley. It is the hub of a vast metropolitan region and is one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing cities. Manufacturing, government operations, tourism, research and development concerns, and construction are important to the city's economy, as is nearby Luke Air Force Base. Phoenix is a popular destination for vacationers and conventioneers.

Children

Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Gaston Bachelard (1884-1962), French scientist, philosopher, literary theorist. Fragments of a Poetics of Fire, ch. 1, "The Phoenix, a Linguistic Phenomenon" (1988; tr. 1990).

Consciousness and the Subconscious

The human consciousness is really homogeneous. There is no complete forgetting, even in death.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. "Introduction to The internal linkDragon of the Apocalypse by Frederick Carter," in London internal linkMercury (July 1930; repr. in Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 4, ed. by E. McDonald, 1936). Carter's book eventually appeared under a different title and without Lawrence's introduction.

Astrology

We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. "Introduction to The Dragon of the Apocalypse by Frederick Carter," in London Mercury (July 1930; repr. in Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 4, ed. by E. McDonald, 1936). Carter's book eventually appeared under a different title and without Lawrence's introduction. Lawrence's approval of astrology, however, excluded "the rather silly modern way of horoscopy and telling your fortune by the stars." His interest lay in the study of the stars as myth and metaphor.

God

God is only a great internal linkimaginative experience.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. "Introduction to The Dragon of the Apocalypse by Frederick Carter," in London Mercury (July 1930, repr. in Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 4, ed. by E. McDonald, 1936). Carter's book eventually appeared under a different title and without Lawrence's introduction.

Myth

Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. "Introduction to The Dragon of the Apocalypse by Frederick Carter," in London Mercury (July 1930; repr. in Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 4, ed. by E. McDonald, 1936). Carter's book eventually appeared under a different title and without Lawrence's introduction.

Pornography

Pornography is the attempt to insult sex, to do dirt on it.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. Pornography and Obscenity (1930; repr. in Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 3, ed. by E. McDonald, 1936). Lawrence admitted, however, that the definition of pornography varied according to the individual: "What is pornography to one man is the laughter of genius to another."

A group of internal linkeight small islands in the central Pacific Ocean north of Samoa. Discovered between 1823 and 1840 by British and American explorers, they were administered at various times by one or both of the countries and are now part of Kiribati.

Design

Design in art, is a recognition of the relation between various things, various elements in the creative internal linkflux. You can't invent a design. You recognise it, in the fourth internal linkdimension. That is, with your blood and your bones, as well as with your eyes.
D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930), British author. Phoenix: The Posthumous Papers of D. H. Lawrence, pt. 4, "Art and Morality" (ed. by E. McDonald, 1936).

"There is a very interesting story by internal linkJorge Luis Borges called _The Sect of the Phoenix_.  Allow me to recapitulate.  Borges starts out by writing: "There is no human group in which members of the sect do not appear.  It is also true that there is no persecution or rigor they have not suffered and perpetrated."  He continues, "The rite is the only religious practice observed by the sectarians.  The rite constitutes the Secret.  This Secret... is transmitted from generation to generation.  The act in itself is trivial, momentary, and requires no description.  The Secret is sacred, but is always somewhat ridiculous;  its performance is furtive and the adept do not speak of it.  There are no decent words to name it, but it is understood that all words name it or rather inevitably allude to it."  Borges never explicityly says what the Secret is, but if one knows his other story, _The internal linkAleph_, one can put these two together and realize that the Aleph is the experience of the Secret of the Cult of the Phoenix."

On March 13, 1997, an event occurred over the city of Phoenix (U.S.)

     June 19, 1997 PHOENIX (CNN) -- When it appeared in the Arizona sky on
     the night of March 13, it was witnessed by hundreds of people. Neither researchers
     nor witnesses have yet figured out what Arizonans saw in the event now internal linkdubbed
     "the Phoenix internal linkLights." [...]

The media ignored this incident, which some think was the biggest internal linkUFO event since Roswell, for months despite the hundreds of witnesses since it occurred on March 13, 1997 over the city of Phoenix, Arizona. Then strangely, all of the sudden, starting on June 18, 1997, almost every major news media started to report on the story in a big way, without any apparent reason. It was as if someone ordered "do it now!"
UFOs over China 1974

The Phoenix UFO incident reported in major media during 18-20 June, 1997:
 

    and more...

It may not be just a coincidence that Richard Hoagland was on Art Bell’s nation-wide radio program just hours before the sunrise of the strange day, June 18, discussing the possible hidden plan behind the Mars Pathfinder probe and also, strangely, discussing extensively about the strangeness surrounding the city of Phoenix. Hoagland actually predicted that something big was about to happen in Phoenix. And this was internal linkimmediately followed by the major media’s incredible attention to the UFO incident of Phoenix that had occurred MONTHS AGO, as if it just happened yesterday. Strange... very strange. The mainstream media usually never seriously report on any UFO-related incidents. It makes one wonder if the major media is controlled by someone with agenda from behind the scenes (of course it is!).

The name of the city, Phoenix, as Richard Hoagland also pointed out, interestingly is the name of the mythical bird which represents the ‘sun’ and is closely associated with the "City of the Sun", Heliopolis. This connection makes Phoenix the "city of the sun" also.

I was over near the button I pushed number four & I said 'where you going'. he said 'Phoenix'. so i pushed 'Phoenix'. doors opened. two tumbleweeds blew in. we stepped off we went to downtown Phoenix. I said 'you know you're a kind of guy Ireally like to hang out with.' he said 'well I'm going out the desert, you wanna internal linkgo?' Isaid sure... so we hopped in his car and started driving out to the desert. he told me he spent most of his life working on a research project for the government trying to find out who financed the internal linkpyramids. he worked on it 30 years and they paid him an incredible amount of money... he told them he was pretty sure it was a guy named eddie. we got to his house 500 miles in the middle of the desert. the internal linkphone rings, he says 'you get it'. so I go over and I picked it up the man says 'internal linkSteven Wright'?
