“The word “ace” comes from the Old French word ‘as’ (from Latin ‘as’) meaning ‘a unit’, from the name of a small Roman coin. It originally meant the side of dice with only one mark, before it was a term for a playing card. Since this was the lowest roll of the die, it traditionally meant ‘bad luck’ in Middle English, but as the ace is often the highest playing card, its meaning has since changed to mean ‘high-quality, excellence’.”
Portgaz D. Ace
The main character of the series is Monkey D. Luffy, a young pirate who wishes to succeed Gold Roger, the deceased King of the Pirates, by finding his treasure, the “One Piece”.
The majority of the characters are human, but the cast also includes, among others, giants, mermen and mermaids, and “fishmen”—beings half human, half fish. Many of the characters possess supernatural abilities gained by eating so called “devil fruits”.
Portgaz D. Ace:
“Though it is implied at first that he is the son of Monkey D. Dragon, he is actually the son of Gol D. Roger and Portgaz D. Rouge; Ace is capable of manipulating, creating and transforming into fire.”

“Sin, (Akkadian), Sumerian Nanna, in Mesopotamian religion, the god of the moon. Sin was the father of the sun god, Shamash (Sumerian: Utu), and, in some myths, of Ishtar (Sumerian: Inanna), goddess of Venus, and with them formed an astral triad of deities.”
Enlil raped Ninlil, the air goddess, who gave birth to Nanna, the Moon god. Nanna and Ningal gave birth to Shamash, the Sun.
“Nanna, the Sumerian name for the moon god, may have originally meant only the full moon, whereas Su-en, later contracted to Sin, designated the crescent moon. At any rate, Nanna was intimately connected with the cattle herds that were the livelihood of the people in the marshes of the lower Euphrates River, where the cult developed. (The city of Ur, of the same region, was the chief centre of the worship of Nanna.) The crescent, Nanna’s emblem, was sometimes represented by the horns of a great bull. Nanna bestowed fertility and prosperity on the cowherds, governing the rise of the waters, the growth of reeds, the increase of the herd, and therefore the quantity of dairy products produced. His consort, Ningal, was a reed goddess. Each spring, Nanna’s worshipers reenacted his mythological visit to his father, Enlil, at Nippur with a ritual journey, carrying with them the first dairy products of the year. Gradually Nanna became more human: from being depicted as a bull or boat, because of his crescent emblem, he came to be represented as a cowherd or boatman.”
Sin was represented as an old man with a flowing beard—a wise and unfathomable god—wearing a headdress of four horns surmounted by a crescent moon. The last king of Babylon, Nabonidus (reigned c. 556–539 bc), attempted to elevate Sin to a supreme position within the pantheon.”

“Killer BOB is a demonic entity from the Black Lodge, a realm of pure evil which exists on an alternate plane of reality. He spends most of his time on Earth possessing human beings, although he also travels in the form of an owl. While possessing humans, he commits horrible crimes to elicit pain, fear, and suffering from those around him; these feelings, which Black Lodge residents refer to collectively as garmonbozia, act as a form of nourishment. Physically, garmonbozia takes the shape of creamed corn, which is referenced in the series when Laura Palmer’s best friend Donna takes over Laura’s “meals on wheels” route and accidentally serves the Tremonds creamed corn.”

Red Robin Hood – The Prince of Thieves:
“The robin redbreast is a bird of Spring, a time of new growth and new beginnings. It flies into our lives on the winds of change asking us to weed our personal gardens and plant new seeds for our future. Rebirth and renewal require changes in all areas of life that have become stagnant and outdated. The robin redbreast teaches us to how to make these changes with joy in our hearts. Its song is a happy one reminding us to let go of our personal drama and learn to laugh with life. If this medicine is underdeveloped those with this totem are continually challenged by the prospects of change. Difficulties arise and emotional discord can surface. Learning how to release our attachments to the old is one of the life lessons the redbreast helps us master.
This bird packs a powerful punch. It holds strong significance in ancient myth and lore. One legend had its origins in European mythology, in which the bird of Spring was associated with the New Year and represented divine sacrifice and the rebirth of the spirit.
In Medieval Europe the robin redbreast was often depicted attending the Christ child, an emblem of the Passion to come. It was told how, at that fateful hour, it was the tiny robin who flew to Jesus’ Crown of Thorns, striving valiantly to pluck the spines away with his beak. Unfortunately the bird succeeded only in tearing his own breast on the thorns. Ever since then it was thought that all robins wore red feathers on their bosoms as a badge of honor. The robin redbreast is a bird of divine service. Those with this totem often have past life ties to the Christ energy. They make excellent priests and missionaries.
The red coloring of the robins chest is linked to the kundalini in man. This life force lives coiled up within the base of the spine. When sufficient spiritual growth has been attained it uncoils, rising up the spine to create heightened awareness. This process enhances psychic vision which leads us into enlightenment. Those with this medicine are dedicated spiritual seekers. Growth can be slow and arduous. With patience, compassion and proper focus spiritual ideals are achieved.
Robins lay powder blue eggs. This is the color associated with the throat chakra in man. It is also linked to heavenly inspiration. Because the throat chakra’s main function is to express the will of God and the egg is symbolic of new life, this helpful little totem teaches us how to assert the creative will of God in all we do. It leads us into new beginnings without fear by restoring faith within our hearts.”

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live.”
“It is said that the Greek god Zeus fought for 10 long years against the titans, only to have the battle end in a draw. We at Atlas like to believe Zeus could have won the fight in half the time if only he had one of the guns from our legendary line of firearms. All Atlas guns offer exceptional rate of fire, damage, and an epic level of high technology. Regardless of your god, you need not look to the heavens for salvation from adversity. Atlas weaponry can answer your prayers and grant you a power few mortals have ever experienced. Prove yourself as a true believer. Join the select ranks of Atlas owners and become a god among men!”

“Jenova serves as one of the primary antagonists in the world of Final Fantasy VII, and experiments on its cells have produced many of the other antagonists as well, including Sephiroth. Throughout Final Fantasy VII, Jenova is often referred to as “she”, though Ifalnacalls Jenova “he” (or “it” in the PC version).
Approximately two thousand years before the game’s main events Jenova landed on the Planet, having traveled through space on a meteor. The impact created a giant wound on the Planet’s surface that would later come to be known as the “North Crater”. After its arrival, Jenova emerged from the crater and approached the Cetra, using its mimic abilities to destroy them using their memories and emotions. Those who were taken victim were infected with Jenova’s cells and mutated into monsters. Jenova would then take the form of the fallen Cetra, and so get close enough to destroy their loved ones. Ifalna calls this process as Jenova giving the Cetra “the virus”.
“Quickly, Jenova was able to destroy most of the Cetra civilization. Their daughter race, the humans, hid from Jenova while the Cetra were nearly wiped out. The few Cetra who had survived banded together to defeat Jenova and quarantined it inside the North Crater, where it would lie dormant for thousands of years. Despite their victory over the “Calamity from the Skies”, the Cetra civilization was lost, and their numbers dwindled down to almost nothing while humans spread over the Planet. As time wore on, humanity forgot about Jenova and the Cetra fell into legend.”
“The physical aspect of Deus is part of the Yaweh interplanetary invasion system, along with the Zohar, created by an ancient civilization.”
“It was coupled with the Zohar to become a tool of unprecedented destruction. As is the case with AIs that have too much power, its ambition grew out of control and it was disassembled and placed within the Eldridge for removal. It took over the ship, however, and crash landed on the planet where Xenogears takes place, sustaining heavy damage. To repair this damage, it activated a repair system known as Kadamony. This repair system created a race of people which would one day revive it. It is the objective of the Gazel Ministry and Emperor Cain to restore Deus by changing all humans into Wels, which the god-machine would then absorb.”

Adamas or Anthropos
Also called Geradamas and Pigera-Adamas, is a word-play on the name Adam and the Greek word for steel, adamas.
The adjective adamantine means solid or incorruptible, Adama in greek means untamable.

The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
“Amaltheia or Adamatheia was the she-goat (or, according to some, Nymph) nurse of the god Zeus who nourished him with her milk in a cave onMount Ida in Krete. When the god reached maturity he created his thunder-shield (aigis) from her hide and the horn of plenty (keras amaltheias or cornucopia) from her crown.
Amaltheia was placed amongst the stars as the constellation Capra–the group of stars surrounding Capella on the arm (ôlenê) of the Auriga the Charioteer. The goat on the arm no doubt represented the stormy aigis-shield of Zeus which in classical art was sometimes depicted slung across his arm. The rising of Capella marked the onset of stormy weather for the Greeks. Indeed, the word aigis denoted both “stormy weather” and “goat-skin,” hence their close connection in myth.”
An aegis is a large collar or cape worn in ancient times to display the protection provided by a high religious authority or the holder of a protective shield signifying the same.
In the Judeo-Christian tradition, it is called “the resurrection body ” and “the glorified body.” The prophet Isaiah said, “The dead shall live, their bodies shall rise” (Isa. 26:19). St. Paul called it “the celestial body” or “spiritual body ” (soma pneumatikon) (I Corinthians 15:40).
In Sufism it is called “the most sacred body ” (wujud al-aqdas) and “supracelestial body ” (asli haqiqi).
In Taoism, it is called “the diamond body,” and those who have attained it are called “the immortals” and “the cloudwalkers.”
In Tibetan Buddhism it is called “the light body.”
In Tantrism and some schools of yoga, it is called “the vajra body,” “the adamantine body,” and “the divine body.”
In Kriya yoga it is called “the body of bliss.”
In Vedanta it is called “the superconductive body.”
In Gnosticism and Neoplatonism, it is called “the radiant body.”
In the alchemical tradition, the Emerald Tablet calls it “the Glory of the Whole Universe” and “the golden body.” The alchemist Paracelsus called it “the astral body.”
In the Hermetic Corpus, it is called “the immortal body ” (soma athanaton).
In some mystery schools, it is called “the solar body.”
In Rosicrucianism, it is called “the diamond body of the temple of God.”
In ancient Egypt it was called “the luminous body or being”
In Old Persia it was called “the indwelling divine potential” (fravashi or fravarti).
In the Mithraic liturgy it was called “the perfect body ” (soma teilion).
In the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo, it is called “the divine body,” composed of supramental substance.
In the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin, it is called “the ultrahuman.”
Noah got drunk and lay naked in his tent. Ham saw his nakedness and told his two brothers.
20Noah was the first tiller of the soil. He planted a vineyard;
21and he drank of the wine, and became drunk, and lay uncovered in his tent.
21And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. (Gen. 9:20-22)
In Taurus, we see Orion as Noah, Auriga as Ham and the Gemini twins as Shem and Jepheth. The three sons are looking down at their father.
Shem and Japheth covered their father but did not see his nakedness.
23Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. (Gen. 9:23)
Robin Hood robbed and fleeced;
” Pirke De-Rabbi Eliezer (c. 833) relates the Jewish traditions that Nimrod inherited the garments of Adam and Eve from his father Cush, and that these made him invincible. Nimrod’s party then defeated the Japhethites to assume universal rulership. Later, Esau (grandson of Abraham), ambushed, beheaded, and robbed Nimrod. These stories later reappear in other sources including the 16th century Sefer haYashar, which adds that Nimrod had a son named Mardon who was even more wicked.”
ESAU was the fraternal twin brother of Jacob—the patriarch and founder of the Israelites.
Auriga the charioteer represents neptune himself.
The main star of the constellation, Capella, is Amalthea, the she-goat that nursed the infant Jupiter. Capella, from the Latin for little goat, is known as the “Shepherd’s Star.” From the earliest times the stars of Auriga have portrayed a charioteer holding his reins while carrying a goat and its two kids. Three small stars southwest of Capella are known today as the “Kids.”
“Strangely, in China the stars of Auriga were considered the five chariots of the five emperors. These were the star gods whose thrones were in Leo and in Cepheus. The Babylonians also pictured a chariot in this part of the sky.”
Polaris and her magnetism, featured on the cover of X-Men: Kingbreaker #3
“Polaris can generate magnetic energy pulses, create force fields, manipulate the Earth’s magnetic field, and allow herself to fly, By concentrating, Polaris can perceive the world around her solely as patterns of magnetic and electrical energy.”
“Cepheus is a crowned king in royal robes, whose foot is planted on the Pole star (Polaris). On the Farnese globe (2nd century A.D.) he is depicted in the garb of a tragic actor. He was the son of Belus (Belos), king of Egypt. Cepheus is husband of Cassiopeia, and their daughter is Andromeda. His wife was proud of their daughter’s beauty and boasted that Andromeda was more beautiful than the Sea Nymphs, the Nereids who were daughters of Poseidon (Neptune). The Nereids complained to Poseidon who sent a sea monster, Cetus, to ravage the coast. With his kingdom in grave danger Cepheus consulted the oracle of Ammon in Libya for advice. He learned that the only way to save his kingdom was to sacrifice his daughter to the sea monster. Andromeda is chained to a rock and left to the mercy of the monster. The hero, Perseus, arrives at the scene and falls in love with Andromeda, he has a quick consultation with Cepheus and Cassiopeia, it is agreed that if he rescues their daughter he could marry her. The sea monster arrives and Perseus kills it. Perseus breaks the chains that bind Andromeda to the rock.”
“The later Hindus knew Cepheus, or Kepheus, as Capuja, adopted from Greece; but a linguist (George Hewitt) claims that with their prehistoric ancestors Cepheus represented Kapi, the Ape-God, when its stars alpha and gamma, Alderamin and Alrai, were the respective pole-stars of 21,000 and 19,000 B.C. [Allen, Star Names]. A word for ‘ape‘ is common to Greek kepos and Sanskrit kapi, or kapih, these words also link, with k/mute alteration, with Germanic and Celtic words like Old Norse api, Old English apa, Old High German affo, Welsh epa and Irish apa, ‘ape’. The Greek word kepos, ape, resembles cepheus or kepheos.
The verb ‘to ape‘ is to mimic characteristics of others which is what actors do and this might relate to the astrological influences given for Cepheus by Manilius who lauds his acting talents.”

The Lady of the Light
At first, The Lamp Lady, also known as Cynthia Weaver, plays a rather small role in the events of Alan Wake, but turns out to have a greater impact on the story in the end. She is one of the few people in Bright Falls that was involved and remembers the poet Thomas Zane and is aware of what happened to him. She was once a journalist, and investigated occurrences into the occult, until she became the light keeper for the whole town of Bright Falls.
The Lamp Lady is a clear reference to The Log Lady from the cult TV-show Twin Peaks. Not only do they share a similar name; their appearance, behaviour and importance to the plot is almost identical. The main character in Twin Peaks and Alan Wake both meet her in a dinner. She’s written off as crazy by the inhabitants of the town. They even seem to have the same glasses. Other then the object they always carry around, what really sets them apart is that Log Lady’s log seemed to have psychic abilities while Lamp Lady’s lamp only serves as a way to keep the darkness away.

“The Soldiers of the One (also known as the “STO“) are a group which is the militant arm of the Monad Church based on Gemenon. It is active sixty years before the Fall of the Colonies. Its singular mission is to “drive out the many Gods” and combat the decadence and corruption of Colonial society. They also seek to unite the Twelve Colonies by imposing a single monotheistic faith on all of them. ”

“More than sixty years later the same symbol utilized by this group is seen at the hands of the humanoid Cylons, being employed during a religious funereal service (TRS: “Islanded in a Stream of Stars”). The reappearance of the symbol may suggest a direct connection between the religion inherited by the modern Cylon nation from the Caprican Centurions and that espoused by the Soldiers of the One. ”
“The Black Lodge is a fictional setting featured in the television series Twin Peaks. It is an extradimensional place which seems to include, primarily, the “Red Room” first seen by Agent Cooper in a dream early in the series.

What would Frank Booth Do ?
“Jeffrey and Sandy note the unusual appearance of robins in their town.”
“Jung had “spirit guides”, one of whom was named “Philemon”. Jung observed that “Philemon and other figures of my fantasies brought home to me the crucial insight that there are things in the psyche which I do not produce, but which produce themselves and have their own life. Philemon represented a force that was not myself. In my fantasies I held conversations with him, and he said things which I had not consciously thought. […] Psychologically, Philemon represented superior insight.” To anyone else, Philemon might be a figment of Jung’s imagination, or evidence of his madness. But Jung felt that Philemon was real – yet somehow dead, and somehow “talking” to Jung – to Jung’s mind.
Jung thus felt he was not insane; he felt that Philemon was a source of information that was legitimate: somehow, Jung was able to receive information from a source of information outside of his head – not existing in this physical reality. It opened the way for his theory of the collective unconscious, a type of library containing everything ever known, and archetypes, “active principles” that interacted between that “dimension” and ours.”
“Nyarlathotep differs from the other beings in a number of ways. Most of them are exiled to stars, like Yog-Sothoth and Hastur, or sleeping and dreaming like Cthulhu; Nyarlathotep, however, is active and frequently walks the Earth in the guise of a human being, usually a tall, slim, joyous man. He has “a thousand” other forms, most of these reputed to be maddeningly horrific. Most of the Outer Gods have their own cults serving them; Nyarlathotep seems to serve these cults and take care of their affairs in their absence. Most of them use strange alien languages, while Nyarlathotep uses human languages and can be mistaken for a human being. Most importantly, while the other Outer Gods and Great Old Ones are often described as mindless or unfathomable, rather than truly malevolent, Nyarlathotep delights in cruelty, is deceptive and manipulative, and even cultivates followers and uses propaganda to achieve his goals. In this regard, he is probably the most human-like among them.
“Philemon is a deity who appears as a man wearing a butterfly mask. He lives within the realm of the subconscious and he awakens within people the ability to use Personae.”
Iridescence in Butterfly Wings
“The same principle behind soap bubbles applies to butterfly wings. Their wings, however, amplify the effects of iridescence because they have many more layers for the light to pass through and thus many more opportunities for the light waves to reflect and magnify one another.
As small as they are, butterfly wings are covered by thousands of microscopic scales, split into two to three layers — thus their Greek order name, Lepidoptera, meaning scaled wings. In turn, each scale has multiple layers separated by air. Rather than having just the constructive interference from the top and bottom layer that you have in a bubble, the many, equally spaced layers of butterfly wings create multiple instances of constructive interference.
When light hits the different layers of the butterfly wing, it is reflected numerous times, and the combination of all these reflections causes the very intense colors that you see in many species. Some butterfly displays even extend into the ultraviolet spectrum, which is visible to butterflies but not to humans. This ability to detect ultraviolet light guides monarch butterflies on their annual migration from North America to Mexico.”
