May Day - Spires


May 1, 1931

The Empire State Building opened. The building's opening coincided with the Great Depression in the United States, and as a result much of its office space went without being rented. The lack of renters led New Yorkers to deride the building as the "Empty State Building". The building would not become profitable until 1950. In the 1990s I taped a Satellite TV show from a studio at the top of the Empire State Building where I was known as The Satellite Psychic.

May Day

The earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian times, with the festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers, and the Walpurgis Night celebrations of the Germanic countries. It is also associated with the Gaelic Beltane. Many pagan celebrations were abandoned or Christianized during the process of conversion in Europe.

A more secular version of May Day continues to be observed in Europe and America. In this form, May Day may be best known for its tradition of dancing the maypole dance and crowning of the Queen of the May. Various Neopagan groups celebrate reconstructed (to varying degrees) versions of these customs on May 1. The day was a traditional summer holiday in many pre-Christian European pagan cultures. In the Roman Catholic tradition, May is observed as Mary's month, and in these circles May Day is usually a celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. May 1 is also recognized in the U.S. as Law Day.




Spires



Let's get to the "point" - zero point - no more sand in the hourglass - the "end" of "our class". The concept of the towering spire reaching the heavens goes back to the original myth when extraterrestrials allegedly descended from the sky and created a biogenetic experiment called humans - leaving behind physical clues about their existence and eventual return. The celestial gesture of the spire is associated with religious buildings around the world. It goes along with the iconographic motif of the logarithmic spiral representing the interconnected movement of consciousness above and below within the matrix of our reality.
