Aesthetics and Origins of the Ancient Cat Priestesshood of Pussiopolis
9 Brief Lessons on the History of the Cat Priestesshood and the Evolution of Love
All Ways for Pleasure!
Mind over Matter!
1. On ancient Lemewria the Cat Priestesses had their order. They were a highly select and evolved society of feline goddesses whose vocation was the guardianship of the orb of Holofelinity, The Universal Cat Consciousness.
2. Holofelinity Is the feline power of mind over matter. Even today on Earth, anyone who owns a cat can tell you that their cat rules their world. This is why the regal sign of Leo is especially connected with the Sun – The Lion is the star, the unifying force, which the world revolves around. All that happens under the sun is for the pleasure of the pussy.
3. Every cat and every Cat Priestess is beautiful! Every cat and every Cat Priestess is a star! Every star and every beauty is a form a pleasure, and all life’s experience expands to encompass pleasure.
4. To feel is feline, and all that is feline is a feeling. Every feeling is a falling star – so feel for what you wish. Loneliness is only longing for the feline stars. Wish upon the stars, my kitten, and the Milky Way shall be the milk within your dish!
5. The Orb of Holofelinity was composed of a rare element whose vibratory signature is beyond our periodic table of the elements, a special element called “pizzazzium”. It could be thought of in terrestrial terms as “ultra-cheesiness”. It was a kind of “Ambrosia” or “Soma” – a “divine nectar” of the immortal cat people who dwelt upon ancient Lemewria. The element of pizzazzium empowered and intoxicated the feline mind and enabled the transformative experiences of Holofelinity.
6. The civilization of the feline developed as a pure expression of the mind. Labor and toil were unknown in Lemewria because all things emerged and were manifested by the imagination of the dreaming, purring feline. Have you ever wondered what your cat is really doing when she is sleeping? Of course Kitty is not merely sleeping – she is creating worlds, conquering worlds, saving worlds and doing all heroic deeds and achievements of genius.
7. The Cat Priestess purrs the world into existence. Each purring breath, inhalation and exhalation, is the pulse of ins-PURR-ation. Inspiration is the goal itself, nothing is higher and more valued among Lyran Space Cats than the bejewelled forms of precious thought crystallizing with effortless grace into the satisfaction of physical existence.
8. The saga of the Cat Priestesshood of Pussiopolis is the drama of the evolution of love. Love is pleasure, yet pleasure is never perfect – love is a state of longing for perfection. As the machinations of desire unfold the story of existence, we can see through the ages and aeons of Holofelinity, the ideal of love become yet more sublime, more profound, more beautiful and . . . of course; more loving!
9. The Milky Way was created when a little kitten spilled a saucer of milk the Mother of the Universe had set out just for her, and it only happened but a moment ago, so no one has come along to clean up that beautiful mess splashed across the night sky.
That most celebrated sorceress of Greek Myth, Beautiful Circe, was famed for her ability to transform men into animals. The tale of her enchanted isle where Odysseus’s men are transformed into swine, echoes the history of the magic powers of the Cat Priestesses. Even as the spirits of the Cat Priestesses of Lost Lemewria resided on Earth only within the Catoliths, the shards of the Orb of Holofelinity, their power to transform life on Earth was great.
Earth was like a fresh canvas for the Cat Priestesses to paint their ideal picture upon. It was a living canvas, and their subjects were not only the plants and animals in all their variety, but the elements themselves and the very climate and geography of Earth. From the depths of the frigid seas at the height of the ice age, arose two continents: New Lemewria in the Pacific (named for their lost home planet), and Catlantis in the Atlantic.
The Cat Priestesses had the capacity to manipulate with great facility the DNA code of living organisms using the the psychokinetic power of their own minds, the power of Holofelinity. For them it was like weaving a tapestry. Woven into this tapestry most centrally was Homo Sapiens. It was around 70,000 years ago, a point in geological history marked by the eruption of the supervolcano, Toba, on what is now the island of Sumatra in present day Indonesia, that the Lyrans, in the aftermath of this eruption which blanketed the globe with a 1/4 inch of ash, that the Cat Priestesses, first created humanity as we recognize ourselves today. Taking indigenously occurring local proto-human primates, the Cat Priestesses wove strands of their own Lyran DNA code into that of the primates. This Lyran DNA was the proverbial “Missing Link” of evolutionary theory. The tiny number of surviving proto-humans were all given this Lyran DNA and made subservient to the Cat Priestesses who presided over them in the forms of beautiful women with the heads of lions, leopards, cheetahs, and tigers.
Upon New Lemewria and Catlantis the Cat Priestesses created cat civilizations that aspired to the finest values of Lyran Cat Civilization on Lost Lemewria, namely the celebration of beauty and the pursuit of pleasure above all. Yet, the Lyran Cat People were feline in essence and therefore always fundamentally predators at heart. For Lyrans beauty and pleasure was often found in the thrill of the hunt and the submission of the prey. Lyran civilization evolved predation into sado-masochistic rituals that were at once religion, theater, sport and – not least of all – sexual indulgence. In this spirit, the earliest Homo-Sapiens were created mostly for the pleasure and amusement of their Cat Lords and Ladies. It should be noted that by this time the Cat Priestesses from Lyra had incarnated on Earth into both Male and Female forms – Gods and Goddesses to humankind – but for the Lyrans themselves it was a replication of the social order that once existed on their home planet (I will return to this subject later).
Transubstantiation, a power ascribed to the Eucharist within the Catholic Mass, transforms bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. It is to be noted that only that which IS the Lord Jesus Christ himself is transubstantiatied. In communion, neither Jesus’s loin cloth (technical name, “Perizoma”) nor his crown of thorns are tasted by the faithful – only his body and his blood. This is because transubstantiation only metamorphoses the body but does not transform the objects that belong to that body.
In the final days of the Cat Planet, the Cat Priestesses found themselves in a terrible predicament: Theirs was a power of transubstantiation dependent on a magical crystal, the “Orb of Holofelinity”, and if they could escape their doom through transubstantiation they could not take the Orb with them, and so they took a chance doing something that had been made taboo since time immemorial upon Lemewria: They chose to translate themselves into the Orb of Holofelinity itself. Doing this would shatter the Orb and also they could never return to their physical forms, but the most important thing – the power of Holofelinity – would be preserved. That power they would not allow the Reptilians to destroy.
A central motif throughout Arthur C. Clarke’s writings is the evolution of human consciousness through extraterrestrial – and seemingly divine – influences. In 2001: A Space Odyssey we are introduced to the “Monoliths”. These mysterious dark metallic oblong objects appear consequentially and seem to bestow a decisive blessing resulting in an evolutionary leap in consciousness: Immediately after touching the monolith in curiosity, the primitive early man (indeterminate hominid?) picks up the femur of a tapir and strikes his enemy dead: The use of tools.
Like the Monoliths of 2001, the Catoliths appeared on Earth mysteriously before the dawn of human civilization, before humans as we know ourselves existed. These were the shards of the Orb of Holofelinity that had transubstantiated from Lemewria to Earth. These shards were the Cat Priestesses themselves, the consciousness of the Cat Priestesses lived within these mighty crystals. The crystals took the form of tall, elegant, mystical cat statues that evoked the beautiful forms of the Lyran Cat Priestesses. The design of the Catolith Cat Statue of Cathenge is a replica of the ancient Catolith of the Cat Priestesses, the Catolith formed from the Orb of Holofelinity. The Catolith is the sacred icon of Holofelinity, Universal Cat Consciousness.
The Catoliths materialized on Earth at carefully chosen geographic coordinates that would amplify the Power of Holofelinity. There were only 9 Catoliths, and their locations are no longer certain – some may have been under the sea or deep within caves, but in Africa it was upon the banks of the Nile in Ancient Egypt that a Catolith stood. The Cat Priestesses, now consciousness bound to crystals, were pleasantly surprised by the pliability of life on Earth. Here was a primeval planet, beautiful, rich in resources, and with a pre-existing abundance of complex genetic diversity, yet no civilization whatsoever – all of Earth’s creatures were just animals.
The Cat Priestesses found that their minds could play here freely and that they could not only invest their consciousness into the life forms a round them and thereby experience physical existence once again, but that they could, using their minds, manipulate the DNA of all living things on Earth. This is how they became the animal headed Egyptian Gods. They melded the humanoid Lyran form (yes, lyrans were humanoid – but with feline characteristics) with animal forms – somewhat whimsically.
The Cat Priestesses created human beings to be the vessels of Lyran consciousness – their consciousness – and to fulfill the Lyran impulse to create physically. The early civilizations of Lemewria and Catlantis were formed by the humans newly mutated from an existing hominid race (like Neanderthal or Cro-Magnon). Cat Lords and Cat Priestesses were beautiful humans with cat heads and other feline characteristics. This drastic difference in morphology denoted their higher rank and power – they were the “gods” on Earth who carefully taught the newly created humans the arts of Civilization, and inculcated the Lyran ethos of beauty and pleasure before all else, and the practical principle of Holofelinity.
I’m running out of time for describing the practical use of Holofelinity, but I think that it is summed up well in this clip from “The Cat from Outer Space” (Disney, 1978);
In human history, one of the truly definitive moments was when the Egyptian solar deity, Atum Ra, transformed himself into the Great Cat Mau and beheaded the Demon Serpent Apep who threatened to destroy the Ennead (pantheon of nine Egyptian deities) that dwelt in the “Ished Tree” (Tree of Life).
Like so many antediluvian stories, the details are rather hazy, but I can set the record straight: The incident described in the Egyptian myth describes the final victory (circa 12,900 years ago) of the Lyran Cat Priestesses over the dreaded Disco Reptilians. This was a conflict that started on a planet orbiting the pole star, Vega, 25 light years away from Earth.
This planet, known as “Lemewria”, was the home planet of the Lyran Cat people whose highly spiritual existence informed a civilization devoted to beauty, pleasure and love.
Indeed, it was such a perfectly beautiful utopia of orgiastic sensual gratification that it attracted the implacable enmity of the Disco Reptilians whose sole gratification, diametrically opposed to the values of the Lyrans, was in inflicting suffering in all its forms upon others. For Reptilians, subjugation equals celebration, and there’s was an interstellar discotheque of wanton destruction. Ultimately, the highest flowering of Lyran civilization was decadent and resulted in weakness through an excess of self-indulgence and so it was that Lemewria fell completely to the Disco-Reptilians who utterly destroyed the Cat Planet.
The “Cat Priestesshood of Pussiopolis” existed on Lemewria as a sacred order of female Lyrans whose special duty it was to care for the “Orb of Holofelinity”, a vast crystalline orb composed of the mysterious element of “Pizzazzium”. This Orb of Holofelinity generated the “Universal Cat Consciousness” that allowed all Lyrans to manifest their dreams through the power of their minds. Lyran society was based pre-eminently upon the mind, and through the power of thought alone a Lyran could be anything or create anything. The Cat Priestesses were the stewardesses of this metaphysical power and their ethos was one of beauty, pleasure, and love above all.
They were beings of limitless compassion devoted to the pursuit of endless pleasure. Through providing this power generously to Lyran society they unintentionally fostered a world where the majority of Lyrans chose to occupy their time by transforming themselves into pizza. It sounds very odd, but actually it is logical: If all you want in life is to experience pleasure then you will wish to BE pleasure itself, and pleasure in its purest form is actually pizza. Nothing is better than pizza.
Earth’s turns in “Great Years” that mark the complete precession of the equinoxes over a 26,000 year period and the transit of the entire zodiacal circle. From our present new age of Aquarius, if we look back merely 4 Great Years we see an Earth in the depths of the Ice Age and aligned not with the pole star Polaris, but with the pole star, Vega. This was the earth that the Lyran Cat Priestesses, refugees exiled from their long lost love planet of Lemewria, beheld when they arrived. Girded in mighty glaciers, the Lyrans beheld crystalline beauty in every snowflake and an exhilarating freedom from persecution – for the Lyrans; Earth was salvation.
Perhaps it seems unimportant to which star Earth aligns, but for those like the Lyrans who used not spaceships, but the power of their own minds to cross the vastness of space this alignment was very important. At that time, between Earth and Vega there was an electromagnetic concordance, a standing wave, a “wormhole” that allowed the Lyrans to transubstantiate from the demise of Lemewria to the dawn of Earth. There in the wilderness of Earth, when they beheld the great prehistoric cats, Saber Tooth Tigers, Smilodons, the Lyrans were smitten and melded their form with that of the Cats they admired.
Combinations of human with animal, such as are seen in the iconography of Ancient Egypt, are termed “therianthropic” or “Theriencephalic”, and the earliest humans beheld their creators, the Lyran Cat People, as having human bodies and the heads of lions.
Musica universalis (literally universal music), also called Music of the spheres or Harmony of the Spheres, is an ancient philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of celestial bodies—the Sun, Moon, and planets—as a form of musica (the Medieval Latin term for music). This “music” is not usually thought to be literally audible, but a harmonic, mathematical or religious concept.
The idea continued to appeal to thinkers about music until the end of the Renaissance, influencing scholars of many kinds, including humanists. Further scientific exploration has determined specific proportions in some orbital motion, described as orbital resonance. – Ref: Wikipedia
Sit, Jessica. Look how the floor of heaven Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold: There’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st But in his motion like an angel sings, Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins; Such harmony is in immortal souls; But whilst this muddy vesture of decay Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.
In February we completed the “New Prototype Kittolith” and debuted it at the Space Cat Cavalcade. This 5′ tall Catolith was printed by Re3D in Houston, Texas. The sound and lights were created by Theremin Barney, Artur Pyrogovskyi, and Aaron Winette. In this video I am demonstrating the motion detection based sound/light interactivity that Barney engineered using passive infrared sensors. The cat itself is a speaker. A kind of transductive speaker is affixed to the perimeter wall of the cat statue and the entire plastic cat vibrates to produce the sound. The sounds are solfeggio tones that Artur programmed in a randomized cycle to be triggered by the voltage signal transmitted from Barney’s motion detection circuit. This is still a work in progress, but we are developing this system to be used in the ring of six Catoliths that will be installed at Patricia’s Green.
Upon Lemewria an order of Cat Priestesses arose that specifically exercised ritual power over the Orb of Holofelinity. This occult female order was comprised of both Felis and Panthera type Lyrans, and therefore represented a unification of differing strata of Lemewrian Society. However, its activities were largely secret, and much of the powerful esoteric knowledge of the Cat Priestesshood of Pussiopolis never escaped the destruction of Lemewria. Just as the Orb of Holofelinity came in shards to Planet Earth, so to did the Teachings of Holofelinity, preserved carefully by the surviving Cat Priestesses who resettled as extraterrestrial refugees upon the wild Earth. Upon this planet they were much more than mere priestesses and were like unto goddesses, and it is from this lineage that the tradition of Cat Goddesses of Ancient Egypt – Bastet, Sekhmet, Tefnut, etc. – derives. The Cat Priestesses had a central role in the creation of humankind. Initially, Homo Sapiens were engineered to be a pro-wrestler species, general entertainer and erotic plaything to the Lyran Cat Lords who rapidly succumbed to intermarriage with mankind resulting not only with the familiar tale of cosmic retribution for a miscegenation of divinity, but also in the elevation of human consciousness with an inkling of the profound power of Holofelinity.
Upon long lost Lemewria the Lyrans dwelt in a “Catopia” of perfect feline harmony under the Law of Holofelinity, “Universal Cat Consciousness”. Lemewria was at once an idyllic microcosmos of all that a respectable peace-loving feline citizen of the Catopian planet-state of perfect cat love could hope for, as well as an uncompromising wilderness filled with unpredictable natural phenomena (and replete with succulent prey for the dominant race of feline apex predators to pursue and consume!). Lemewria was a realm of architectural wonders – cat trees and scratching posts of enormous size and architectural grandeur (and much more!). At the center of all of these wonders was a sacred globe – the “Orb of Holofelinity” which was not only a mystical shrine reverenced by all Lyrans of Lemewria, but was also a functioning power generator that resonated and magnified the collective consciousness of the Lyrans. Through the power of Holofelinity, Universal Cat Consciousness, the cats were able to lead their ideal lives. Many chose to live more in a dream world than in physical reality and would spend their time floating on balls of rice, basically being – not just pretending – but being sushi. This pastime was facilitated by a rare element, “Pizzazium”, which facilitated these polymorphic “transcommodifications”. Ultimately, it was the reliance on Pizzazium that precipitated the downfall of the Lyrans and the total destruction of their beautiful home planet at the hands of the Disco Reptilians. Yet it is believed that when they fled Lemewria the Lyrans preserved with them fragments of the Orb of Holofelinity that had been shattered in the apocalyptic conflagration. These fragments still retained significant power, and it was through the use of the Shards of Holofelinity that the Lyran Space Cats built the antediluvian civilization of Catlantis upon Earth.
