Ship of Theseus

Ship of Theseus

“The ship wherein Theseus and the youth of Athens returned from Crete had thirty oars, and was preserved by the Athenians down even to the time of Demetrius Phalereus, for they took away the old planks as they decayed, putting in new and stronger timber in their places, insomuch that this ship became a standing example among the philosophers, for the logical question of things that grow; one side holding that the ship remained the same, and the other contending that it was not the same.”
— Plutarch, Theseus

The Ship of Theseus (also known as the Theseus’ paradox) is a thought experiment that raises the question of whether an object that has had all of its components replaced remains the same object. Plutarch asked whether a ship that had been restored by replacing every single wooden part remained the same ship.

The Ship of Theseus was rebuilt over the centuries as its wood rotted. At what point did it stop being the original ship and when did it become something else? Its change was gradual enough that the ship maintained an outward appearance of continuity the entire time. Thus, did the spirit of the ship remain all the while it was in a state of constant transformation? 

In many respects, we are all Ships of Theseus, in that every seven years every cell of our bodies has been regenerated and replaced by new cells. In a purely physical sense, you are not the same person you were seven years ago, quite literally. 

The changes taking place in the governments of the world and in the systems we have known all of our lives are happening in a Ship of Theseus manner. The new Ship of State is being rebuilt before our eyes, yet we may not notice it because all the changes are occuring while we are still at sea– and in a storm, no less.

Juan O Savin addressed the new quantum financial system, with regard to some of the magical thinking that takes place around this topic, and his response was that we are on an ocean liner at sea steaming ahead in one direction and you do not simply turn a ship of this size on a dime. First of all, is not technically possible, and second, if attempted without taking the hard realities of the ship and passengers into account, it could result in a metric ton of damage to all involved. 

The cure cannot be worse than the disease.

It is true that the central bank financial system will be replaced, as it is absolutely one of the key chess pieces being fought over, perhaps the main chess piece. You could say the banking cartel and the right to issue money is the King, and the Media, with its hypnotic control over the dissemination of information, is the Queen of the Dark side’s board. 

The everyday people of the world are the pawns, but you might also note that it is only the pawn that can transform into another chess piece. Only the pawn, by crossing the entire board, can undergo the alchemy from the weakest piece to the most powerful one, the Queen.

We have seen this play out since the election of 2016, when patriot citizen journalists became the counterpoint to the mainstream media. With that in mind, we must also be aware that these selfsame citizen journalists are also subject to the same pitfalls in their journey across the board as is the Fool on the Journey through the Major Arcana, or an actor who moves to Hollywood to pursue a noble career in the arts. Is it fame and fortune that secretly motivates the Fool or is it the essence of creativity and truth itself? Can this dream be co-opted for a high enough price? Indeed, there can be a fine line between messaging and merchandising, nowadays.

We are all together on this journey, as the world gradually transforms from one era to another. That is the meaning behind Nothing Can Stop What is Coming. The world is energetically changing. It is in the cards, so to speak. Whether this is characterized as the Earth entering/traversing the Photon Belt, which will bring about inevitable changes regardless of the details of the political battle on the ground, or that we are shifting into the 5th dimension, Ship of Theseus style, or some other metaphor of your choosing, it does not particularly matter. What does matter, is that at the end of this journey, it will be a new ship that docks on another shore. And yet, it will also be the same one, as far as spiritual continuity goes.

It would not do the world or us any good to simply wake up on the other shore of this great change, with no idea of how the ship went from being steered by dark hands, to being steered by enlightened hands. The world needs to learn not only about ship navigation, but how ships themselves are built from the ground up, because We the People are going to need to maintain this Ship of State for subsequent generations. We need to learn the real history of the world, warts and all. Confronting this darkness will not be easy for some, yet that’s what this lesson is for. 

Infiltration instead of Invasion, is what President John Fitgerald Kennedy warned us about. By that point (the early 60’s) the infiltration was already well advanced. And by some years later (the mid 80’s), as detailed by the brilliant KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov, the ideological subversion of America was already in point of fact overfulfilled.


With this in mind, and understanding the direct links between JFK and President Trump, it should be acknowledged that the election of Donald Trump in 2016 played out as a miracle at the last possible second, with the Ship of United States and its passengers about to go over the waterfall and crash onto the sharpened rocks below– where it not for what transpired.

However, the Ship of State does not turn on a dime. President Trump and the Alliance had to go into a captured vessel, whose able bodied seamen had been almost universally compromised, and manage to steer that Ship onto an entirely different course, one that doesn’t go over the waterfall, but shifts course to another tributary, one that had been dug out by human hands to divert the waterway, not overnight but over many years, knowing in advance that one day the Ship would pass by this very spot and there would be one last (seemingly miraculous) chance to get it onto another, far safer course.

The 2016 election, like many before it, was also rigged by the system in a certain candidate’s favor. The Dominion technology is nothing new. If Team Trump was able to overcome that rigging, why some might ask did the same team get defeated by it after Trump was already installed as Commander-in-Chief? Clearly, President Trump and military intelligence saw the election fraud coming a million miles away. With the Covid plan a sloppy kissing cousin to the election fraud.

Was the Trump Alliance, which won a miracle election just a few years prior, outplayed somehow by the Cabal in 2020? Or worse, is there really no Trump Alliance to speak of?   

Take a deep breath.

You can rest assured there is indeed an Alliance, working steadily on our collective Ship of Theseus, and Trump is an important part of this work. However, just like our aforementioned citizen journalists, there are many carpenters at work, and at an individual level each one, whether it is a military figure or a media personality or a judge, or anyone with their hand on a hammer– that individual can always be compromised (or not compromised) based on the strength of their personal integrity.

The Supreme Court is a good example. The Founding Fathers did not make a mistake when they created 3 separate and counterbalancing branches of governance, with Congress, the Executive Office, and the Judicial system.   

The last line of defense in the election fraud (beyond whatever the military might do) would be the Supreme Court. And yet, we’re talking about only 9 fallible human beings, of which only a handful of need to be compromised by either death threats (to them and their families) or the age old 30 pieces of silver of the careerist’s fame and fortune, which has waylaid many a Fool on their journey through the major arcana.  

After all, when push comes to shove, how many individuals in the monopoly game system of this world (each one of us included) have the guts of a Christ when presented with the ultimate choice themselves? Many people, in the public eye and otherwise, pay lip service to the Way of Christ. They might even wear the cross medallion (like jewelry) and quote often from scripture. But when confronted with a challenge that may cost them their lives (or careers) the sacred vows they made to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic become now merely the hollow words of a hollow individual. They may have started out with integrity and good intentions, but when they were confronted by the choice of choices, they became all too human, indeed. 

Christ was promised his own kingdom by Lucifer. All the fame and fortune of the temporal world could have been His, had He chosen to escape the cross which awaited Him. 

“Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. And he said to Him: All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.

Then Jesus said to him: Away with you, Satan! For it is written: You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.”  

Of all the nations of this world, only the United States of America has been consecrated by its Founding Fathers to the Living God, with the Rights of the People as given by the Creator instilled in its cornerstone documents as a sacred trust between God and Mankind. Thus, anyone occupying a key station on this Ship of State, so to speak, has entered into a covenant agreement that is either holy, if they uphold it, or unholy if they betray or reject it. It comes down to the individual and the choice they make.

“Have you made your decision for Christ?”

Alec Baldwin the entertainer has made his decision, along with many other entertainers. They took the thirty pieces, the pirate’s pieces of eight, and they received the splendor Lucifer promised, for the time being at least. 

Elsewhere in the system, from the media to the military to the courts,  individual chess pieces make their moves across the dark and light squares, making their choices within the game. Some players appear more powerful than others, with a greater range of motion and higher win-or-lose stakes, however, remember it is only the seemingly lowly pawn that can make the transformation from one piece to another, from the weakest piece, the expendable piece, to the most powerful piece. And once the enough pawns reach the opposite end of the dark to light board, the game is soon over and checkmate all but inevitable.

From one perspective, it may appear that our world has already been conquered from within. There are compromised and blackmailed agents throughout the entire governmental system, by design. The medical world and big pharma promote disease and stifle the healing technologies which would put an end to their illness-for-profit racket. The financial system creates usury fiat money out of thin air by private interests more powerful than the governments they lend to. And the corporate media is so entrenched in the psyche of the modern individual that they are like unto a hypnotist with a hopelessly brainwashed patient. How can we possibly change this system from within when it is so systematically compromised at every level? Surely, our Ship of Theseus is going over the waterfall into the rocks below. What could possibly stop it now?

Again, referencing Juan O Savin, when Belshazzar and his thousand princes and aides were celebrating their conquest of Babylon by desecrating the sacred relics of the temple, the legendary writing appeared on the wall, which said, in effect: “Your kingdom is no longer. You have been weighed and found wanting.” However, when that occurred, the protective moats of Babylon had been drained by diverting the river, and the soldiers of Cyrus the Great had already surrounded the captured temple operation from within. Of course, no one at the party knew this at the time. Even after the prophet Daniel made the translation of the writing on the wall, even after the revelers had witnessed a miracle before their eyes, they still could have denied that it was all actually happening. 

Like Yuri Bezmenov stated, some individuals will never get the message until a military boot is kicking them in their fat bottoms. Only then will they understand the reality of what has occured.

“Exposure to true information does not matter any more. A person who is demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures. Even if I take him, by force, to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When the military boot crashes his ass, then he will understand. But not before that. That is the tragedy of this situation of demoralization.”

While I most certainly believe there is an inevitability to the proceedings regarding our political situation and the destiny of the United States, and that God is involved in the outcome of this story, I do not believe that a Deus ex Machina moment is going to swoop in and force through the change irrespective of the dynamics of individual choice and freewill. 

That said, I also feel we are on the precipice of a revival moment that is hinted at, or presaged by the Hebrides Revival on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland some 70 years ago. 

This revival was seeded by two old women. One of them was blind and the other bent double by arthritis. Yet together they had the faith to move mountains. You might say they were two pawns who became Queens. This revival was an occurrence wherein God’s presence was felt and witnessed energetically by the people of an area at the same time. It was an undeniable and timeless moment, when the previously hollow words (to many) of the Bible took on a powerful new reality, because the living presence of the Creator was felt directly by everyone– like a current flowing through an outlet that was formerly unplugged.

One of the most noted prayer-warriors of the Hebrides revival was a 15 year old boy named Donald. Our current (legitimate) President of the United States was named after that very boy by his mother Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, who was married to the son of Elizabeth Christ Trump. Mary Anne gave her son a Bible that was gifted to her by her aunts, the  same two women who were the seeds of this Scottish revival. Donald J. Trump was sworn in on this revival Bible on January 20th, 2017, when he was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old, in the Hebrew year 5-777. 

Do you understand why we say: It’s Gonna Be Biblical?

Scotland has its own place in this story. The song Scotland the Brave is similar in spirit to the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Many are aware of the historic import of the Battle of Trenton, where Geoge Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware for the first great victory in the American Revolution, however fewer are aware of one of the most important victories, which came many years later when all appeared lost. This was the Battle of King’s Mountain. This battle was resoundingly won by the Scotch-Irish Overmountain Men, who had declared themselves free men in their own documents 4 years before the Declaration of Independence had even been written. It was the key turning point in the Revolution.

In another respect, this battle for the Soul of a Nation is like the movie Highlander, where a Scottish immortal named MacLeod (hint hint) arrives in New York City to do battle with another immortal, with the fate of humanity at stake.

The swordsman Ramírez in this movie was played by Sean Connery, whose own mother, like Trump, was from the MacLeod clan. Ramirez trains MacLeod to the battle for the ultimate prize, on the holy ground of a faraway land, which would end up being New York City.

Donald Trump’s name (meaning world ruler) was inspired by a revival prayer-warrior, given by a mother surnamed MacLeod, who was given a revival Bible from the two Queens who ushered in the revival? And then he was born in Queens, New York. Donald Trump was sworn in on this revival Bible, following a miraculous election victory in which the entire rigged establishment went all-in against him, and yet he won in the end anyway. Are you enjoying the Story yet? It is the Greatest Political Story Ever Told.


Let us return to the Highlander. The Connery character, recently from Spain but originally from Egypt, finds MacLeod after tracking his old foe, the Kurgan, to Scotland. He explains that MacLeod, the Kurgan, and others like them, were born immortals and destined to battle each other on holy ground. When only a few are left, they will be drawn to a faraway land for the Gathering and battle for the Prize: the power of all the immortals through time. MacLeod only wants a quiet family life. Ramírez tells him that immortals must ensure evil people like the Kurgan do not win the Prize, or else humanity will suffer an eternity of darkness. Ramirez then explains the belief of all immortals:  

“In the end, there can be only One.” 

Donald Trump, before he was President, bought land in Scotland which was once in his distant family. The regent of this area was noted for attempting to give power back to the people and was subsequently killed for it. When Donald was in the process of acquiring this land, he enlisted the aid of a fellow MacLeod to help push it through. Sean Connery. Today, it is one of the many properties in key places that Donald Trump the builder owns, such as the magnificent hotel near the old White House. Cyrus the Great was also a builder. And known for capturing cities by utilizing genius strategies which his enemies did not see coming until it was too late. 

And so we find ourselves in a Story, an epic battle for the fate of humanity. The Dark Team has their players, their pawns, knights, bishops, rooks, queens and kings, and the Light Team has theirs. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell which team is which, as the pieces can switch allegiances by the choices they make while still on the board.

This battle has been on-going, like the battle of the immortals, for thousands of years, and even longer. However, with the arrival of Christ some two thousand years ago, the game took on a heightened dynamic. 

Christ demonstrated something on the black and white chessboard of the world: the alchemy of the human spirit. He demonstrated how a pawn could transform into a Queen, the most powerful piece in play, and the main protector of the King’s kingdom. 

Christ did not achieve this in order to be worshipped as a famous historical individual, but rather to show the way to redemption in this world, conquering death and mortality by aligning His eternal self with the Will of God. Thy kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 

We are entering a revival moment for the world that will change everything, however the choice to align with it must be made by each individual on their own. The choice cannot be made for them or forced upon them in any way. Even in the Hebrides revival, the town of Stornoway, the very capital of the Isle of Lewis, was completely bypassed. The revival came only to small towns and villages in the Hebrides. The reason for this was that the ministers of the capital opposed the revival. 

Sound familiar? The “ministers” of our nation’s capital are opposed to the revival, as well. That should come as no surprise, since many of them work for the other team, as they do in the other places they have staked their occult obelisk– the City of London and the Vatican City. 

There is a reason why demons can be cast out of a body by invoking the name and word of Christ. There is a reason why Christianity, despite the captured operation of the Roman Catholic Church, is despised by the ideological Marxist revolutionaries referred to by Yuri Bezmenov. Any other religion will be protected by the social justice warriors of the culture, but not Christianity. 

The reason is that the Way of Christ has ultimate power. And every individual can claim this power. It is inherent in their being. All human rights, like our Founding Fathers stated, come from the Creator, who made us in His/Her Image. Jesus Christ walked the Earth not only to teach. but to demonstrate the most incredible courage imaginable, when faced with the greatest possible test. 

Jesus could have ruled the world of his time and had unimaginable riches and comforts had he accepted the path of Lucifer. Instead, he accepted a torturous death. And it was a death wherein even His faith and connection to the eternal Source momentarily left Him.

“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” 

Of course, we know the end of the Story. The Greatest Story Ever Told. Christ conquered death and hell and was resurrected. He planted a seed that would grow into the Tree of Life. We all have the same seed in us. We can grow into one of two trees. Sometimes, we grow in one direction, then change our minds and grow in another. And it’s never too late to change– until it is finally too late. In this life, at least.

“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

You might ask yourself, as does the author of these words: Are you simply Waiting for Godot? Waiting for Youtubers and the like, however well meaning, to give you the ‘intel’ they received from secret ‘inside sources’ regarding the moves being made behind the scenes. Waiting for the US Military to announce over the Emergency Broadcast System that Donald Trump won the election and is President again? Waiting for the Supreme Court to actually uphold the Justice they took a sacred oath to protect?

We all have our own choice to make. We may be pawns at sea on this Ship of Theseus, but we also have the latent alchemy of the transformed chess piece within us. 

The Military has a chain of command, yet it is also as weak as its weakest link, when it comes to the higher ups in this chain of command. Who in charge has the courage of Christ when the fate of the world is on the line?

Can and would you do the right thing even if it meant the end of your temporal life? Or the end of the career you worked so hard for?

We can’t pawn these decisions off on other people without also reckoning with them within our own hearts and minds. To be a warrior for the Christ Within is our only way out of the labyrinth of history the Cabal has constructed for us. Are we brave enough to do it? What do you have to lose, as Trump himself once said?

“A warrior is never under siege. To be under siege implies that one has personal possessions that could be blockaded. A warrior has nothing in the world except his or her impeccability, and impeccability cannot be threatened. The worst that could happen to us is that we have to die, and since that is already our unalterable fate, we are free. Those who have lost everything no longer have anything to fear. Warriors don’t venture into the unknown out of greed. Greed works only in the world of ordinary affairs. To venture into that terrifying loneliness of the unknown, one must have something greater than greed: love. One needs love for life, for intrigue, for mystery. One needs unquenchable curiosity and guts galore.”
– Carlos Castenada  

If you have gone down the rabbit hole and found yourself in the bilge pump of this Ship of Theseus, wondering just who the hell you can trust and what in the hell (if anything) is actually happening, know this:

You can trust in God. 

That is our national motto: In God We Trust. We even put in on our money as an acknowledgement of our true Source. Even if you can’t trust the provenance of the actual money itself, you can always trust in God, without whom you do not even exist, and within whom you exist forever. 

This is not to say that money in itself is evil, because it is not. But in this high stakes battle, this Casino Royale for the planet, it helps to know that worldly possessions last for but a moment, so that if and when you are required to go all-in on a bet, you can do so out of love and not fear.

Our trust in Donald Trump is not mistaken, yet he is only one man, fighting the good fight. It would be unfair to ask him to do something we ourselves were not also willing to do in our own way. 

We may have lost all faith in our system of governance after the blatant in-your-face election steal, which was the equivalent of assassinating President Kennedy in broad daylight and then blaming it all on a ‘lone gunman’ with magic bullets.


Yet remember, there may be corrupted Justices who can be bought off, blackmailed and threatened, Justices who do not possess the ‘guts galore’ of a warrior who walks with Christ, however, there is also a Justice named Clarence Thomas.

“Your quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail, to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while all the Company is true.” 
– Galadriel, Lord of the Rings

“I knew that until I was ready to tell the truth as I saw it, I was no better than a politician– but I didn’t know whether I would ever be brave enough to break ranks and speak my mind… I could feel the golden handcuffs of a comfortable but unfulfilling life snapping shut on my wrists… I could only choose between being an outcast and being dishonest. I had sworn to administer justice ‘faithfully and impartially.’ To do otherwise would be to violate my oath. That meant I had no business of imposing my personal views on the country. Thanks to God’s direct intervention, I had risen phoenix-like from the ashes of self-pity and despair, and though my wounds were still raw, I trusted that in time they, too, would heal.”
– Justice Clarence Thomas

If one Justice (and others that follow) can make the right choice when everything is on the line, and stand up to the dark forces within the system that deign to destroy any individual who opposes them, then hope yet remains for the Republic. Hope remains while the Company is true.

Where We Go One, We Go All.

One day we will ask ourselves the philosophical question whether the United States of America is an entirely new Country now or whether it is the same Country the Founding Fathers intended to create when they first put quill to parchment on the Declaration of Independence and mutually pledged their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor.

“With a firm reliance on Divine Providence.”

We are on this Ship of Theseus together. We can ask ourselves later when we get to the other shore, just how the ship managed to change all around us while never wrecking or running adrift.

You might say it happens the same way the central bankers lose their kingdoms. Like bankruptcy, it happens gradually and then all at once.

It is still true that the Best is Yet to Come. 

Yet how do we get There From Here?

I will close with a simple map of sorts, internal directions from a certain Once and Future Queen, with distinctly Pleiadian features, I might add.

“Be Best.” 
– First Lady Melania Trump

Because in the end, ‘what happens’ is also up to you. 

Did you start out in this game as a pawn? Will you cross the dark to light board and make the ultimate transformation?

Will you take the helm on your own Ship of Theseus and steer it in the direction Life itself wants you to go?

The choice as ever is yours. 

Vaya con Dios.
