Nothing Nu under the Sun

In my October 25 post "Bear with Biden," I noted how a Jay-Z record cover from 2009 replaced the letter O with three red horizontal lines (like the E in Biden's logo) and connected this with the Greek letter Xi and thus with Xi Jinping.

Today I read that the latest birdemic variant is being called Omicron even though the last one was Mu. Nu was skipped for practical reasons, since in the future the Nu variant may no longer be the new variant, and Xi was skipped to avoid offending the Grand Pooh-bah. Jay-Z replaced O with Xi, and now the WHO has replaced Xi with O.

This pairing of O and Xi, in a context where Mu is also salient, reminds me of my February 2 post "Year of the Ox."

The two letters of the word ox represent, in East Asia, "yes" and "no." On TV talk shows in Taiwan, the members of the studio audience are often given a pair of signs marked O and X, which they can hold up to show agreement or disagreement with something.

This fits with the Western tradition of describing a dilemma as a beast with two horns. And of course in the famous Japanese koan, one un-asks an impossible question by saying mu -- or, to English the spelling, moo.

Omicron! (as I'm sure you know) was the ancient Greek  equivalent of Omigod! -- the reference being to Cronus the father of Zeus.

“O” and “X” are the symbols used to play Tic Tac Toe
Tic Tac Toe -> Toe Tac Tic-> The Toe Tactic, a 2008 film
The lead actress in the film is Lily Rabe
“Rabe” means Crow in German…

Not to mention "omicron" is an anagram for "moronic"

Mr. Icthus-oress sings a song that goes, “Something to tic-a-tack-too, hurting the feelings of you.”

Come to think of it, a vocabulary unit I taught today used tic-tac-toe to illustrate the use of the word silly: “Tic-tac-toe is a silly game, but I like it.”

The Moronic variant . . . I like it.

Omni = All

With their scythe, Our Opponents are separating the Wheat from the Tares, perhaps??
Guess who our Opponents have deemed the Tares??
If we're not an asset, we are a liability.

Getting ready
for The Shifting of Ages, Industrial Age to the Silicon Age, aka the Great Reset,
and metaphysically from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.

The Singularity:
One Race (Bi Racial)
One Gender (Androgyny)
One Commerce ( Amazon via Africa via China's Belt Road)
One Currency ( QRCodes/Cashless
One Culture (Transhumanism via Artificial Intelligence)
One Religion (Luciferian)

One Eye
