baker:
Let's return to this alphabet circle, then, and the Tull tiles within. Do you want to bring up something else first Booker?

Booker:
Maken.

baker:
Ok. Maken. That all?

Booker:
Yep.

baker:
Are you tired of this interview Booker?

Booker:
We've barely just begun! In a word: probably and maybe not. No. Never. Nonsense.

baker:
So do you wish to talk about the Tull tiles in this alphabet circle?

Booker:
5-6-7-8, t-y-e-l. Growth by one integer each step along a 4 step process, then *falling* back to the first. Waterfall. Perpetuum mobile. This is Jethro Tull as the Queen's concubine. Little King to De Queen. Former Cheater now turned servile. First Man. On the Moon?

baker:
We know now that Tyle – not necessarily TILE mind you but Tyle – has been equated with Arkansas and the return of the Clintons to the White House, an Arkansas bias. Do you wish to talk about Marble Falls? After all, Marble City, which is the same as the Marble Falls town, is also present within Harington's book Let Us Build Us A City. 3rd city visited, as Y City is the 11th and Golden City the 12th.

Booker:
Well, Marble Falls, yes, is the same as Tyle and also TILE. It is also SID's 1st Oz as a whole. Yellow, King, falls *up* to meet Blue, Queen, just like Y or Yellow City or Golden City can fall up to meet Blue Mountain, which may be the same as Rich Mountain.

baker:
You were the Queen on this mountain. Or the Queen was the mountain.

Booker:
The conjunctio, although not reached, could still be traced in the sky in the landscape. It was moving as opposed to stationary, like changing positions of a WORD in a Turing Machine. Step by step by step and so on. 15 or 16. There is no pattern to the movement. It is level 4. Randomness. Complete. Not able to follow completely. No predictability. Chaos? Maybe. Randomness is a better word.

baker:
But this light, this illumination, this potential conjunctio... this is another thing we talked about before starting this session proper -- is this the same as the sphere-cube, the large one, that Prince Rupert gave to you Booker? The one that may still be in your possession?

Booker:
Vega? Well, it could be the Beehive or the buzz of the Beehive Tavern. E Clampus Vitus, which could be seen as the Black Lodge to the White Lodgers known as Masons, prim and proper they are. Bee as ultimate Black Lamb. Evil? Jokester, I thinks.

baker:
I mean, was Rupert there at the Beehive Tavern somehow? The connection with Maken just in the county over seems too convenient.

Booker:
Do you want him to be there? In the Black Lodge to the White Lodge Masons?

baker:
Booker, you referred to Rupert's mason connections before. In Red Star.

Booker:
Yes, that's where he first experimented with the Oz metadata, revealing the Wizard Cube within the Magic Square of Mars that Baum may have picked up from Eckardt and used as the foundation for his first Oz book. And this was, in turn, used as the foundation of Rupert's first and perhaps only Oz book, at least in this reality. The Magic Square of Oz.

baker:
In Maken, West Virginia, we have the beginnings of a local oil boom in 1899, and on a creek named Wizardism Run. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written in 1899 and published in 1900. Here at the very mouth of this creek we have two famous twinned houses. Black and White Lodge *me* thinks. Masons and your Anti-Masons, the ECV. Rupert fire-walks between the two?

Booker:
This is where the longest creek in the world begins, and perhaps the world creek itself. The moving away from White into Black. TILE to Tyle. This is where Tyle separates from TILE, and then Syd becomes SID. 26 retains perfection in this way instead of being corrupted as 36-Triangle is fitted into 36-Square within Dark Side of the Rainbow, which extends directly from this 1899 oil boom in Maken. Wizardism Run is right next to a Lake Floyd now, in the next valley over. This is like a stereoscope, like the twinned houses themselves. This is also the Dark Side, Floyd, and the Light Side, Oz. Dark and Light Lodges, then. But, yeah, all this could be connected for sure. And has to be, really, in some form or way.

baker:
Also I was going to ask you if The Jug was related to Noser Mill?

Booker:
Yes.

baker:
How?

Booker:
I cannot say now.

baker:
Good enough. Back to Tyle, then, and its manifestation in SID's 1st Oz through Jethro Tull/A Passion Play tiles.

Booker:
Yes.

baker:
You said that Middle Island Creek is like Dark Side of the Rainbow, and the Beehive at its end or tail or source is exactly like the ghost b_hive that shows up at the end of Dark Side of the Rainbow, once the corruptions involved in the 36-Triangle that is the same as the album are finished and done with.

Booker:
Yes. The Beehives are the same.

baker:
So Ephraim Bee had knowledge of the b_hive, or the tetractys at least. This was an esoteric group.

Booker:
The Wizard of Oz. The source.

baker:
I know they had a Grand Humbug as one of the leaders. Could that be a connection?

Booker:
Keep going.

baker:
And when initiated the novice member is assigned to head the most important committees of the EVC. Lowest instantly becomes highest when initiated. Like the TILE waterfall again, and also the fact that the private in the royal army of Oz is... what is it?

Booker:
This is 5-6-7-8 again, since in the book Ozma of Oz, the royal army of Oz is described as 26 officers and 1 private, with the officers parceled into 8 generals, 6 colonels, 7 captains, and 5 majors. The Army of Oz becomes TILE. In Return to Oz and also SID's 1st Oz, then, the Royal Army of Oz becomes centered upon the 1, Tik-Tok, who is the whole rounded-off army, as it where. Spherical and complete unto itself. Tik-Tok is, then, TILE or Tyle, I believe, and also the beehive or b_hive. He is perfection regain?

baker:
This is the part that is confusing me, this relationship of Tik-Tok, the first robot in literature according to some, or at least one of the earliest robots, and then TILE or Tyle within SID's 1st Oz. Now in terms of Queen tiles, 8 in number, Tik-Tok is introduced in the 4th of these, which is the 1st Queen tile that uses a whole track from their A Night at the Opera album and not a partial track. He is in this way the summary of 1-2-3-4. In the movie and synch, Queen tiles before this, all partial, are associated with other machine beings. The 1st and 2nd such tile, which combine to form the 1st track of a Night at the Opera, or "Death on Two Legs," highlight the electroshock machine used by Worley to attempt to control Dorothy's Oz fantasies. This is also the first of two Wilson-Wheeler relationships between tiles in the movie.

Booker:
Actually all tiles have this relationship. This is the first one where Wheeler comes before Wilson, against the grains of time.

baker:
Ok, so this reversing is then straightened out in the 4th tile. The 3rd Queen tile, I should add, highlights the queer creatures called Wheelers in the movie, which have human bodies but wheels for hands. They circumnavigate by rolling instead of walking. They are not purely evil, though, like Worley's machine. They appear to be evil at first, but are found later on to be harmless after their connection to the controlling Mombi, and through her, the Nome King, is broken.

But in contrast to all of this, still, Tik-Tok is the first obviously good machine of the movie. He becomes like a Best Friend to Dorothy, and is appropriately highlighted by the Queen track "You're My Best Friend", which also represents one of several singles launched by the album's popularity, along with, of course, "Bohemian Rhapsody"...

Booker:
...featured later on in the synch, in the 7th Queen tile. But I think here, baker, it is important to note that Tik-Tok summarizes 1-2-3-4 (Queen tiles) and divides them from later 5-6-7-8 (Queen tiles). In a way, 1-2-3-4 here is more important. Yes, Tik-Tok appears to at least be a symbol of the tetractys in this way, which is also a summary form, in triangle form, of rows of 1-2-3-4 elements for a total of 10. Perfection, just as Tik-Tok is the perfect and original Oz companion for Dorothy in her second visit to that fantasyland. She makes him *live* and she then is his automatic best friend for that, it seems. Tik-Tok at least seems to be a *bee*. He is associated with the Bee in the central Tull tile of "t".

baker:
Yes, I'm sure I'll cover that in my Defining List for SID's 1st Oz matches, which will be created for the SID's 1st OZ web site as well to help complement what we are talking about here in this interview.

So, Booker, Tik-Tok is definitely yellow or golden [see graphic above, but he's even moreso in the Return to Oz movie]. Is he the 4th, the "y" then? He is defined in the synchronicity as "old junk" by Billina the talking yellow hen, with her yellow nature also highlighted in the synchronicity through the phrase "yellow shoes" during the track "Vegetable Man", and also "yellow taxi" during the first Tull tile used in the synchronicity, at the end of the Kansas region. And also she is identified with "friend" in the same: "My friends as one, all stand aligned, although their taxis came too late", sung as Billina is first shown in Oz. She is the "friends as one", then, it follows. And also their (yellow) taxis as one.

Booker:
And Dorothy is the recently deceased, the Ronnie Pilgrim of the Passion Play album.

baker:
So back to Tik-Tok and the tetractys and perhaps the beehive or b_hive.

Booker:
Right.

baker:
Tik-Tok is a clock? Is this correct?

Booker:
Of course. Tik-Tok... clock. He is two sides of one thing. Dark and Light once again. Two twinned lodges in one? Perhaps, maybe even probably. He is 12 hours night plus 12 hours day. He is round like a planet, and shines golden and glinty like a solar orb.

But then in the central tile of the whole process, he becomes the Bee of "The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles" story. And as such he represents Tik-Tok with his brains run down. Giving senseless advice, like the Bee in the Tull story. His triangular logic of carrots=good eyesight, spectacles=good eyesight, therefore carrots=spectacles, is pure nonsense, of course. A mobius triangle of confusion.

Red, green, and blue, without grounding yellow. He has lost the yellow, the gold. Triangle without groundedness. He descends to the same level as Jack Pumpkinhead, who is assisting him in the construction of The Gump at this point in the movie/synch. Jack follows Tik-Tok's orders even though they are ridiculous because he too knows no better. However, Jack's disabilities in this direction are permanent, while Tik-Tok's can be remedied by Dorothy simply winding back up his thinking key. But at that point in the synchronicity, Tik-Tok is the same as the Bee of "The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles" story, and thus at the same mental level of confusion as Jack the Vegetable Man. Jack here is literally tying his feet together to make what should be two separate things one, like the carrots and the spectacles. This is an important triangle in the synchronicity, and perhaps shows the limitation of the tetractys triangle by itself, without the help of the 5-6-7-8 addition provided by extension of its meaning into the 36-Triangle.

If the b_hive with its topping tiny "b" is actually a representation of perfection, a ghost form at the end of Dark Side of the Rainbow, like a discarded rattle, then the inability of Tik-Tok to retain perpetuum mobile status, a continuously running clock with no winding key needed, is the limitation of the tetractys as well. Actually one has to have two perpetuum mobiles, one running in the opposite direction of each other, to provide needed stability. And then they have to relate as well in some kind of figure 8 pattern.

There is also much more to even that central section than you have yet guessed.

baker:
I can imagine. This is what I was going to bring up before I got off on a tangent then – directly relating to this. Since The Jug is at the center of Middle Island Creek, which may be a world creek, is this also the center of SID in another way? Or this "Hare" story? This is the "Middle Island" of the stream? Are you the Hare-Who-Lost-His-Spectacles then, Booker? The inability to see the last star/city light, the always mobile and always illusive? Did you loose your spectacles for at least this one light beyond all other, stable lights? Was this because it was moving faster than light? Perhaps beyond time as defined by clocks with their ticks and their tocks? And, if so, are you now trying to put back on your glasses after the vision is over and done with? To see into that far away illumination, which is perhaps a beehive or a b_hive, focused? Is the "b" the needed illumination, the needed vision? Or does he possess it?

Booker:
We have gotten very far away from the Tull trapezoid within the circle of the alphabet we began with. Should we continue another night?

baker:
I think we have to begin at the center and work our way out. The spread out center that is A Passion Play and also SID's 1st Oz is the key.

Booker:
Whatever you say baker b.! Beer anyone???

baker:
Wine for me.
