Jupiter’s Star Child Resurrected

In the 1980’s “tiles” stated randomly appearing in the streets across America. They were from “Toynbee” and mentions Stanley Kubricks 2001 movie, resurrected dead and Jupiter. “TOyNBEE IDEA IN KUbricK’s 2001 RESURRECT DEAD ON PLANET JUPiTER.”

“In 1983, an article in The Philadelphia Inquirer told of a man named James Morasco who said Toynbee’s theory of bringing dead molecules back to life on Jupiter appeared in Kubrick’s 1968 film. Many have argued that no such reference exists, but Jupiter is part of the movie. Toynbee was best known for his writings on the rise and fall of civilizations.” (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.space.com/2380-odd-street-notes-point-jupiter-kubrick-2001-space-odyssey.html#ampshare=https://www.space.com/2380-odd-street-notes-point-jupiter-kubrick-2001-space-odyssey.html)

In the 90’s Justin Duerr from Philadelphia became obsessed with these tiles and went on to search for this allusive Mr. Morasco and tp document these tiles all over the world. He ended up producing a documentary called “Resurrect Dead” based on his findings. These tiles were replicated by others as well as Duerr. Duerr says that this could be considered what we know today as an artsy meme. 

“One Web site reported a Toynbee tile in Pittsburgh that offered instructions on how to make the plaques using several layers of linoleum and glue. Another tile reads, “You must make and glue tiles!” That was enough to persuade Duerr to make a tile of his own and slap it to a street in Philadelphia. He said his version looks almost like the others. His actions present the most obvious explanation: Other people were intrigued enough by their encounter with the tiles to make their own in various cities. Duerr said there’s even a name for such behavior: A meme, pronounced “meem,” meaning a cultural action that is transmitted and repeated over and over.” (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.space.com/2380-odd-street-notes-point-jupiter-kubrick-2001-space-odyssey.html#ampshare=https://www.space.com/2380-odd-street-notes-point-jupiter-kubrick-2001-space-odyssey.html)

“In 2011, four Philadelphia residents made a documentary titled “Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles”, in which they presented a reclusive Philadelphia resident Severino “Sevy” Verna as a suspect. The movie claims that Verna placed the tiles through a hole in the floor of his car while broadcasting a message via short wave radio about his theories. The film makers believe that Verna was the man behind “James Morasco”, although they fail to provide any hard evidence.” (http://www.amusingplanet.com/2016/09/the-mysterious-toynbee-tiles.html?m=1)

“It is believed that the creator was inspired by Ray Bradbury’s science fiction story “The Toynbee Convector,” which alludes to an idea proposed by Arnold J. Toynbee that for humankind to survive, it must always aim to achieve far beyond what is practically possible in order to reach something barely within reach. Perhaps the creator wants to spread the message that humans should adopt Toynbee’s idea and strive to colonize Jupiter. Such themes were touched upon in Stanley Kubrick’s classic movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” about a manned mission to Jupiter, where the character of Dr. Dave Bowman undergoes accelerated aging, dies, and is reborn as a “star child” back on Earth.

“For a while, the primary suspect was a man identifying himself as James Morasco, although the name is quite likely a pseudonym. Morasco contacted various talk shows and newspapers in 1983 with his theory of colonizing Jupiter with the dead inhabitants of Earth, claiming to have come across the idea while reading a book by historian Arnold Toynbee. That “James Morasco” is indeed an alias was confirmed when the only James Morasco in Philadelphia died in 2003 without knowing anything about the tiles, while the messages continue.” (http://www.amusingplanet.com/2016/09/the-mysterious-toynbee-tiles.html?m=1)

“In 1983, a man identifying himself as a social worker named James Morasco contacted talk shows and newspapers with his theory of colonizing Jupiter with the dead inhabitants of Earth, claiming to have come across the idea while reading a book by historian Arnold Toynbee. In a conversation with the The Philadelphia Inquirer, Morasco discussed how Toynbee’s book contained a theory on bringing dead molecules back to life, and that this was later depicted in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. The caller had founded what the Inquirer called a “Jupiter colonization organization”, known as the Minority Association.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toynbee_tiles#Creator)

“TTT combined the ideas in Experiences and connected them to the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick. He then set to work forming the Minority Association, a group dedicated to the colonization of Jupiter. We have no proof that the organization was ever larger than its founding member.” (http://www.toynbeeidea.com/portfolio/when/)

This article originally appeard in The Philadelphia Inquirer on March 13, 1983.

Call me skeptical, but I had a hard time buying James Morasco’s concept that the planet Jupiter would be colonized by bringing all the people on Earth who had ever died back to life and then changing Jupiter’s atmosphere to allow them to live. Is it just me, or does that strike you as hard to swallow, too? Morasco says he is a social worker in Philadelphia and came across this idea while reading a book by historian Arnold Toynbee, whose theory on bringing dead molecules back to life was depicted in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

“There are no scientific principles I’ve found that can make this possible,” Morasco said, “especially colonizing the planet Jupiter, which has a very poisonous atmosphere. The possibility of giving that planet an oxygen atmosphere is beyond even science fiction writers’ imaginations.”

Now that quote may sound as if Morasco doesn’t believe it can be done, but that’s not true. He thinks that between Toynbee and Stanley Kubrick there is a way to pull it off. That’s why he’s contacting talk shows and newspapers to spread the message. He’s even founded a Jupiter colonization organization called the Minority Association, which he said consists of, “Me, Eric, Eric’s sister who does the typing, Frank . . . ” You may be hearing more from Morasco. And then again, you may not. (https://web.archive.org/web/20040405211334/http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascitystar/living/special_packages/starmagazine/6702715.htm)

I looked up a “James Morasco” and one book seemed to keep popping up on my search.  “From the Pew to the Pulpit, My Walk with the Antichrist”. Pretty strange title for a book I thought.

I did a little search on Kubrick and came across this. There is a big Kubrick exhibition starting on September 23rd.


I also want to bring up this article that references the movie 2010. It slipped my mind that in the movie Jupiter imploded on itself and by doing this it became a SECOND SUN. I see this reference to a birthing event of say, maybe 9/23? Its these occultist second son being born. And with Cassini diving to its death into Saturn it makes more sense than not. Here is the article in full.

End of Time: Cassini’s Grand Finale

Cassini‘s “Grand Finale” on September 15th was something of a “nuclear event” marking the end/edge of time.

Cassini is powered by plutonium-238. It’s plunging into the atmosphere of Saturn, the planet/god of time, coinciding with a terrorist bombing in London where Earth’s time is anchored (Greenwich at longitude zero).

For additional context, we have 2010: The Year We Make Contact in which a swarm of Monoliths plunge into Jupiter, triggering a nuclear chain reaction and turning the planet into a second sun called “Lucifer” (in the novel version).

In early drafts the planet was actually Saturn. It was only after the special effects team was unable to produce a convincing rendition of Saturn’s rings that they picked Jupiter as the destination in 2001: A Space Odyssey and subsequently in 2010: The Year We Make Contact.

The name “Lucifer” ties into the so-called “Lucifer Project“, a fairly popular conspiracy theory that claims NASA’s Galileo mission – plunging into Jupiter on September 21, 2003 – was secretly intended to ignite the gas giant with its nuclear fuel. That of course did not materialize. Not to be deterred, the same idea was applied to Cassini and Saturn, what’s unfolding right now.

No chance of it literally happening, of course. But the implied nuclear-Saturn-Lucifer combination is noteworthy and real enough in terms of symbolism and multicontextual patterns.

For example, it heavily resonates with what was happening early April this year when Venus was being reborn as Lucifer (= meaning “morning star”) while simultaneously a “Lucifer Alignment” was in effect.

I use the name “Lucifer Alignment” for this as the combination of the Sun, Venus/Lucifer and Jupiter evokes the 2010 scenario of Jupiter turning into a second sun Lucifer. Here it was particularly fitting with the addition of the “nuclear explosion” aspect expressed through simultaneous world events early April with the idea of “countdown to nuclear showdown”.
