Often we find other selves participating and taking part in events and circumstances simply because others are doing it. We give so little thought, or absolutely no thought at all, to why we do something. Swiped away by the moment, swiped away by the crowd, or just swiped away. In Psychology that is referred to as “the herd mentality syndrome” or “the mob mentality”, something that we are intimately and historically familiar with (at this point, we suggest you replay the “MosDef” post again, on this site: just click on “Talking Truth to Power” in Popular Topics). There is very little about America that is authentic; some might take exception to that comment, but might we humbly suggest to check your facts. Remember, it is referred to as “a melting pot” due to the amalgamation of various cultures, people and ideas. We at “Connecting the Dots” ask, what is July the 4th? What does Independence Day mean? Because it certainly has a different meaning for Native Americans. Oh, you forgot about your brothers? We didn’t and never will. (And you thought the above quotes were harsh.)
In the fine tradition of CTD, we connect things through science, we let the facts speak for themselves. Did you know just about every holiday in Western and Eastern culture marks and/or celebrates an astronomical or astrological event? Our future posts on Astrology, Frequencies and Waves, and Electromagnetic Energy will delve very deeply into these sciences and their relationship to, well, just about everything. For example, the Christmas date of celebrating the birth of the son (that’s S-O-N) of God on December 25 is actual an astronomical event known as the “Procession of the Equinoxes”, which has do with the sun (that’s S-U-N). Three days after winter solstice (December 22) the Sun is once again visible in the sky (that’s S-U-N) but that’s another post. In fact, if you pay close attention to the iconology of the Masons, much of it has to do with the Sun. That’s S-U-N, not S-O-N. If you are so inclined, take the tour of the Masonic Temples that are offered to the public in your location. One consistent architectural theme throughout is the ceiling of stars. Why is that? Did you know the so-called founding fathers, some of the signers of the Constitution, were Freemasons? Thirteen of the 39 signers of the Declaration of Independence were Freemasons. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, James Monroe, John Jay, John Hancock (whose signature is prominently displayed on the Declaration of Independence, again another story, for another post), Paul Revere, John Paul Jones, James Otis and so on, were all Freemasons. Fact: the so-called declaration of independence was not signed until August 2, 1776. Independence was formally declared on July 2, 1776, a date that John Adams believed would be “the most memorable epocha in the history of America”. So, why July 4th? We’re closest to the sun around New Year’s Day and farthest from the sun around Independence Day. Actually, depending on the year, the date of perihelion can vary from Jan. 1 to 5; the date of aphelion can vary from July 2 to July 6. So on average, July 4th is the date we are the farthest from the Sun. The city of Washington D.C. is filled with Astrological symbols (buildings, statues, monuments, etc.) and is laid out in a Astrological grid. John Adams, spoke favorably of Freemasonry, although there is no evidence that he was Mason. (May we suggest reviewing the video in our post “Esoteric? Occult? What does this mean?” titled “Secrets in Plain Sight”, excellent.)
Think about that; the 4th of July is the day that we are the farthest from the Sun. The Sun, the giver of life to all things on this earth. The Sun is in such a position on July the 4th that it aligns with Sirius. That means that the sun is in front of Sirius, so that you can’t see it. Now, the cornerstone ceremony for the Washington Monument was on July 4, 1848; note that the sun aligns with Sirius at that time every year. They proclaimed that on the day of the cornerstone ceremony for the monument, you would have been able to see Sirius rising in the east, and hovering over the Capitol Building. You now know that you can not see Sirius on July 4th, since the sun lies directly in front of it. Strange symbolism, no? In fact, symbolically, that the Sun is hiding Sirius is important here. Ask yourself this question: What does Sirius represent? What is it in it’s symbolism that is so important as to construct a major holiday around it and erect monuments to symbolically hide it? On the day that the earth is the farthest from the Sun?
Some questions we won’t answer, not yet. We need to see who among you is thinking. Why? Because we need all the thinkers we can get! Leave us a comment below.

The point we are making here is that you have to pay attention, People; all that you seek is right before you. As we often say, “Our salvation is our responsibility”. You cannot possibly continue to be naive, allowing yourself to be deceived by this most simple of Matrix/Paradigms. The symbols are all around you! On your dollar bill, in the buildings and lay-out of Washington D.C., on your television shows, movies, video games, etc. It is everywhere! Stevie Wonder can see something “ain’t” right in this system. And it continues to function due to one simple act by you…your participation. So, put that on your grill this holiday season and cook it!
