[ AM47 was conceived in early 2007 and has been evolving ever since. There’s a lot to take in here and much of it needs editorial polish. I’d recommend scroll-scanning through some pages after this one (esp. the 5 destination pages) to get a better sense of the content and the scope. There is metaphysical content ahead. Please don’t dismiss this out of hand. The core project is perfectly tangible and relevant to this real world. The occult angle is for those who recognize it: No *Belief* Required. This is a true story. ]
Four locations in perfect cross-quarter formation around the world are naturally manifesting the characteristics of the 4 Classical Elements of ALCHEMY. The mission of Project ALTER MAN 47 (AM47) is to film the journey of an alt-fuel ship that will circumnavigate the globe to connect all four of these points, one every three months, over the course of a year (the timing of the voyage is strictly set to the ancient Egyptian/sidereal astrological year). In so doing this will further generate Synchronicity and help raise the spiritual Awareness of humankind. Departing from the Point of FIRE in San Francisco, to the Point of WATER off the coast of Japan, to the Point of AIR in Turkmenistan/Iran, to the Point of EARTH in the Azores, and back to the Point of FIRE in San Francisco to complete the circle.
When the Sun aligns with the direct center or “Angel Point” of sidereal Aquarius, the Point of Elemental AIR (PoEA) can be expected to manifest in the vast, barren Kara Kum desert of Turkmenistan (just north of Iran). The next PoEA is on 29 Feb 2012 (and 28 Feb 2013, etc.). The AM47 ship was scheduled to have sailed from the Point of WATER off the coast of Japan and have docked at the Iranian port-city of Bandar-Abbas in the Straight of Hormuz by mid-Feb 2012. The crew of AM47 was then to travel north, overland through central Iran to Turkmenistan and into the Kara Kum desert to arrive at the PoEA at 37.47 N, 64.03 E on 29 Feb 2012 (and 28 Feb 2013, etc.). This point lies just east of the ancient city of Mary and the very ancient site of Gonur Tepe. Gonur Tepe is the recently discovered 5th center of world civilization of the ancient world (side by side with Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and China) that was the birthplace of Zoroastrianism (and hence Mithrasism and all monotheism), a religion based on the opposition of good and evil. There, the overland crew of AM47 was to generate, observe, dedicate and send Elemental AIR into Awareness.
The AM47 ship was then to continue its circumnavigation of the globe to the Point of EARTH in the Azores and then return to the Point of FIRE in San Francisco. After a successfully documented and magically transformative journey around the world, the ship was to again set sail north in late-Sep 2012 for Alert, Nunavut, the northernmost inhabited city on the planet near the North Pole, for the Point of Elemental AETHER and the Gateway of Arcturus on 17 Oct 2012 (and 16 Oct 2013, etc.), thus completing The Pentaform: A Psycho-Cosmic Pyramid Crowning Gaia. Although funding for the journey was not secured for this years attempt, the cycle begins anew each year and Project AM47 will try again for a scheduled departure on 01 Sep 2012 (and 31 Aug 2013, etc.) from San Francisco’s FIRE to the WATER of the Japan Trench.
AIRy Facts about Turkmenistan/Iran. Here is a chronological history of all the potent information, news and events from this location, most of which have obviously uncanny Elemental AIR connotations:
1. 4,000 years ago, the “lost civilization” of the Margiana built a great city at Gonur Tepe (just slightly west of the Point of Air in Turkmenistan) which sat at the hub of the crossroads of many cultures. There they invented Zoroastrianism (the first recorded monotheism/dualism which also venerated the 4 Classical Elements and Alchemy) and presided over this vast network of cultures during what was called “the happiest time in the history of the world”.
2. (Ancient) There is a temple in present day Ashkabad in Turkmenistan with the inscription “mehriyan” or “place of Mithra”. The Mithraic Leontocephaline figure has remained enigmatic. But if you consider it’s origins being in the 4 Elements and the 4 Persian “Royal Signs” of the zodiac, it is clear that this lion-headed figure can gracefully represent these: Leo, FIRE (lion head), Scorpio, WATER (serpent coiled – Scorpio was also symbolized as a serpent in Egyptian, Babylonian and Persian myths), Aquarius, AIR (angel body), all standing atop Taurus, EARTH (as a stylized bull’s head/globe/earth). The Leontocephalous/Mithraic symbology is an ancient embodiment of the 4 Elements precessing through the equinoxes and hence, of sidereal astrology and Alchemy itself! Did the Leontocephaline symbology originate in the land that is now modern day Turkmenistan? The figure is of course standing or hovering in the AIR over the EARTH globe.
3. (Ancient) The border between Iran and Turkmenistan was determined by “a supernatural arrow shot through the air” as documented in Persian antiquity. Did this “arrow” land on the AM47 Point of AIR? “When Manouchehr and Afrasiyab determined to make peace and to fix the boundary between Iran and Turan (Turkmenistan), ‘it was stipulated that Arash (Erekhsha) should ascend Mount Damâvand, and from thence discharge an arrow towards the east; and that the place in which the arrow fell should form the boundary between the two kingdoms. Arash (Erekhsha) thereupon ascended the mountain, and discharged towards the east an arrow, the flight of which continued from the dawn of day until noon, when it fell on the banks of the Jeyhun (the Oxus).'”
4. (Ancient) Historically, the favored funerary practice of the peoples of this vast Central Asian region was excarnation (open Air disposal) on “Towers of Silence” (just like Hanging Man!).
5. (1800’s) The society of modern day Turkmenistan is considered one of the most repressive on earth. That stands in diametrical opposition to the very essence of the AIR Element, it can be considered as ‘the shadow of Air’. Elemental AIR represents the intellect, communication, planning, organizing, writing, languages and teaching, as well as commerce and travel. Ancient Turkmenistan was a major trade hub on the old Silk Road linking the East to the West.
6. (2008) Gobekli Tepe, the very recently discovered 12,000 year old catalyst point of civilization is just west of the Point of AIR, and at the exact same latitude!!!!! As far as we now know, human civilization was based on the observation and agreement of the stars above and what the movement of space-time really meant to the human experience.
7. (2008) A team of international surveyors determined Turkmenistan to have the second or possibly first highest natural gas reserves in the world! (AIR, the gaseous state of matter!) .
8. (2008) Turkmenistan is now beginning to enter the news due to its vast energy reserves and because of it’s strategic value as it borders both Iran and Afghanistan. Also because of Turkmenistan’s stance of political neutrality, which is a very AIRy aspect indeed.
9. (2008) Both the Aral Sea to the north and the Caspian Sea to the west of the Point of AIR are drying-up… point of fact.
10. (2008) Wind Man, a film about an AIR Elemental and Madar, the Angel of Death from ancient Persian myth, played for the first time here in San Francisco. Wind Man was filmed in 2007 right near the Point of Elemental AIR in Turkmenistan!
11. (10 Mar 2010) An unprecedented super-novae event (a nova-level flash event where none was expected) was detected in Cygni V 407, which shares the celestial longitude of the center of sidereal Aquarius. The Sun had aligned with the center of sidereal Aquarius and the Point of Elemental AIR just 10 days earlier on 28 Feb 2010. Though this super-novae event was detected on 10 Mar 2010, it is easy to surmise that the actual event (perceptible to earth) occurred closer to 28 Feb 2010, which was the direct center or “Angel Point” of sidereal Aquarius!
12. (Late 2010) The film Black Sands was released – a new documentary about Gonur Depe, Turkmenistan and the deep roots of monotheism. “There is a previously unknown Bronze-Age civilization deep in the cobra-infested Kara Kum (Black Sands) Desert in Turkmenistan. Battling sand-storms and intense isolation, archaeologist Viktor Sarianidi uncovers a city where the dead were disposed through ritual excarnation and astrologer-priests consumed hallucinogenic ritual drinks over 4,000 years ago. Is it the motherland of Zoroastrianism (or Mithrasism) ~ an ancient Indo-Iranian religion that was later to strongly influence Judaism and hence Christianity and Islam.?.” Gonur Depe is just west the Point of Elemental AIR!
13. (13 Jan 2011) The TAPI natural gas pipeline (short for Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) has finally been ratified and is expected to bring energy security to the entire region. Turkmenistan is said to have the world’s third or fourth largest gas reserves (although “this could be much higher”), and is of course the Point of Elemental AIR of Project AM47. Plans to pipe natural gas from the region are also in the works for Iran, China, Russia and the EU and the US. This could truly be be one of the harbingers of peace and energy security that we have been waiting for!
14. (21 Feb 2011) Currently Developing at the AM47 Point of Elemental Air.
15. (02 Mar 2011) @ The AM47 Point of Elemental Air in Central Asia on 21 Feb – 02 Mar 2011.
16. (14 Jul 2011) Faith met a crossroads in ancient Rome. Christinanity beat-out Mithrasism by an inch, leaving us with the C-grade reality we share today. Christinanity was simple, while Mithrasism required a process. The Mithraic Leontocephaline figure has remained enigmatic. But if you consider it’s origins in the 4 Elements and the 4 Persian “Royal Signs” of the zodiac, it is clear that this lion-headed figure can gracefully represent these: Leo, FIRE (lion head), Scorpio, WATER (serpent coiled – Scorpio was also symbolized as a serpent in Egyptian, Babylonian and Persian myths), Aquarius, AIR (angel body), all standing atop Taurus, EARTH (as a stylized bull’s head/globe/earth). The Leontocephalous is an ancient embodiment of the 4 Elements precessing through the equinoxes and hence, of sidereal astrology itself. Christinanity empowers from without, thereby weakening the spirit of man: The Christinane symbol of the crucifixion is mundane death. Mithrasism encourages from within, thereby strengthening the spirit of man: The Mithraic symbol of the Leontocephaline is magical life.
17. (14 Feb 2012) Today, the Sun entered sidereal Aquarius (AIR: intellect, innovative communications). In a letter, Iran says it’s ready for nuclear talks. For the love of godz and all existence, let’s not fuck this up mankind, okay.?. The AM47 Point of Elemental AIR is approaching on 29 Feb 2012. What’s going to happen? Something Wonderful… or else.
18. (21 Feb 2012) Today in Afghanistan, deadly violence broke out after U.S. military servicemen disposed of several copies of the Quran by burning them. Afghanistan is just south-east of Turkmenistan. A top Iranian military commander responded by saying “The Muslim world should not accept an apology issued by U.S. President Barack Obama over the burning of Korans in an American base in Afghanistan, and that nothing short of burning the White House can relieve the wound of us.” Speechless. This idiocy by the USA is fucking catastrophic. Unbelievably stupid behavior… I Support Troops Who Break Ranks!!!
19. (22 Feb 2012) The U.N. nuclear watchdog’s IAEA ended its latest mission to Iran after talks on Tehran’s suspected secret atomic weapons research failed, a setback likely to increase the risk of confrontation with the West, not to mention making it nearly impossible for AM47 to complete it’s future mission of global Awareness.
21. (26 Feb 2012) Today in San Francisco I had the good fortune of meeting with Bora Ozkok, an expert on the mythology, shamanism, religion, folklore, culture, language and travel of the region around the AM47 Point of Elemental AIR in Turkmenistan (just north of Iran) and Turkey (Gobekli Tepe). It’s funny that what was shaping up to be the most difficult point of the AM47 journey is now the one that I have the most help with. AM47 was scheduled to be in Turkmenistan on 29 Feb 2012, but sadly the required publicity and subsequent funding for the project was not secured for this years attempt. Yet that this most fortuitous meeting should conspire to occur on 26 Feb 2012, just three days before the target date, is of course further evidence of the Synchronicity and pure Magic at work in the project. AM47 is now another step closer to the reality of a 01 Sep 2012 (or 01 Sep 2013, etc.) launch date. Wild Wishing…
22. (28 Feb 2012) Today is the center of the ancient Egyptian/sidereal astrological sign of Aquarius and the AM47 Point of Elemental AIR. Yesterday, an “Era of Happiness” was declared by the president of Turkmenistan’s totalitarian regime!! His slogan “The happy epoch of the mighty state” is a “call for our future achievements and great deeds”. “In Turkmenistan a new era has begun/ All the Earth is lit up by the light dawn/ The glory has enveloped the heart with an aura of greatness/ And in the mighty state a happy time has begun!”
23. (28 Feb 2012) AIR In Effect: A new round of nuclear negotiations with Iran is likely to be agreed in the next few days… Iran has not yet decided to produce a nuclear weapon, in part, because there are deep-seated disagreements among its leaders about whether it is the right thing to do… Iranians prepare for the most important holiday of the Persian calendar, Nowruz, an ancient Zoroastrian festival of Spring… Can’t the Iranian Zoroastrians mobilize and take back Iran from the Muslims and lead the world in nuclear disarmament?? C’mon now, let’s see some MAGIC!!

Project ALTER MAN 47 is the visionary voyage of an alt-fueled ship on a unique mission to circulate *alt-tech+culture* around the world; Borne of a dream & guided by astonishing Synchronicity to include an ancient Alchemical process within humankind’s emerging potential to truly change. The AM47 crew aim to further generate Synchronicity and help alter earth’s destiny by circumnavigating the globe to exalt *The AM47 Pentaform : A psycho-cosmic pyramid crowning Gaia*.
The Alchemical Great Work has remained an elusive spiritual mystery. It is the core of an evolutionary metaphysical experiment developing right now. Central to the Great Work are the 4 Classical Elements and the 7 Inner Planets. Four locations in perfect formation around the globe are naturally and profoundly manifesting characteristics of each of the 4 Elements. (This Elemental pattern is found no where else on the planet and is in the correct ordering of Alchemical transformation.) A voyage is being organized to
and link these locations in order to generate, observe, dedicate and send these magical forces into Awareness by completing *The AM47 Pentaform: A psycho-cosmic pyramid crowning Gaia*. The cycle of project AM47 annually begins again on 02 Sep 2013 (& 01 Sep 2014, etc.).
