I have had a couple days to even meditate further on the above word play around Manitoba and Obama. I feel like seeing this was a portal in itself. For over a month I had been blogging about Obama, Black stars/holes, Galactic Centre, Jupiter and Tin. Tin is relevant because it is the Etruscan name for the Greek god Zeus, and the Roman god Jupiter. Jupiter and Tin share the same alchemical symbol, which in my mind at least, looks a lot like 42, or the answer to "meaning of life, the universe and everything." (check out the Tinman's Rainbow Lodge and the Gnosis of 42 for a more in-depth exploration of these ideas)
Obama resonates very much, at least symbolically, the cosmic forces unfolding right now. His rise to power mirrors the rise to power of the black hole at the centre of galaxy as we align with it. The centre of galaxy, or the centre of our heart, or the centre of the Garden is symbolically represented by a black star. In the Manitoba legislature it is a 8 rayed black star. If one aligns with the centre they too may peer into the infinite, touch galactic consciousness and have their own black star reveal itself as a visual guide and point to follow.
Jake Kotze in the comments brings up that Obama's name can also break down into:
O for stargate BA for spirit/soul? MA for Mother
... and then the Accidental Alchemist brings up that Obama is the 44th President. This resonates Galactic Centre and Jupiter as well.
4 +4 = 8(H) which is the sign for infinity. 44 can also be seen as 2 4s, which winks at 42/Tin/Jupiter.
... and then there is also the word NIT that is between MA and OBA in the word Manitoba. To kNIT is a grandmotherly act, perhaps the knitting, weaving, of the fabric of our existence.
Manitoba originates from the indigenous language of the area and it means Where the Creator Sits. Where the Mother meets the Father.
Perhaps Genesis, or the place of GENEration iSIS?
Regardless of the substance behind Obama's rhetoric, Change is upon us. That is clear.
