The next item is strange. I was online, but had the TV on in the background. PBS was showing "Mark Twain Tonight!" as portrayed by Hal Holbrook. It had been telecast in 1967 and NOT AIRED SINCE. It's important to know that. I happened to flip to the right station at the right time to see something not aired in about 43 years.
Mark Twain is telling a joke, and mentions "WC." I immediately though of W.C. Fields, but it became apparent the "WC" was something else and I had no idea what it was, but the audience apparently did, and was laughing. I was just hearing bits and pieces, as I was concentrating on the computer.
Later, about an hour or an hour and a half, I put in the bonus disk of The Prisoner series. In one extra interview, Sir Ian McKellan was describing his trailer. It had a microwave, a shower, a bed, and a WC. I experienced something akin to chills, seeing as how I had heard the term earlier and wanted a definition. The interviewer didn't know what a WC was either, and Ian explained it is a "Water Closet" - another term for the bathroom or toilet.
The final bizarre coincidence occurred the following night when a rock and roll album from 1984 popped into my head. It was called Thunder Seven by Triumph. I was suddenly possessed with the idea of how great that album cover would look as my avatar on facebook. I don't normally use album covers as my avatar. I located a file of Thunder Seven and after removing the band's name, put it on my profile. The painting is based on Leonardo Da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man" painting.
I became curious as to who had painted this skeletal figure in a geared wheel, and it turned out to be an artist named Dean Motter. I researched Dean Motter and as it turns out, Dean illustrated and co wrote a series of graphic stories called The Prisoner - Shattered Visage.
It's based on the original Prisoner series and was published in 1988-89. The story occurs 20 years after The Prisoner series ended, and Patrick McGoohan is still in the Village.
I don't know of a good explanation as to WHY I chose to use this piece of rock and roll art, by this person who worked with McGoohan's assistance to make a graphic novel that was a "continuation" of The Prisoner, and WHY I chose to use the art one day after I watched The Prisoner bonus DVD.
Huxley's "Heaven & Hell," Mark Twain's WC, and Triumph's THUNDER SEVEN, all within a window of watching the three Prisoner DVDs.
What are the odds of my just happening to catch a Mark Twain reenactment that hasn't been broadcast since 1967 that will pose a question that will be answered within an hour and a half by a bonus DVD in 2010? And guess what began in 1967? The 17 episodes of the original Prisoner series, on September 29.
The timing required for all of these aspects to align is against all probability and indicates a mechanical consciousness with multiple common connections and reference points.
This mechanical consciousness is the prison in which I reside.
As do you.
