"Remember those posters that said, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"? Well, that's true of every day but one - the day you die." - Kevin Spacey (10-Ben) as Lester Burnham in American Beauty, 1999

The day of manifestation in the 1-Kat(n)  process is 10-Ben. This is the day on which a clear line is drawn between what’s real and what’s just an opinion; between conspiracy feary and undeniable reality.

Known in the east Indian Vedic tradition as the Web of Indra, the union that abides between you and me (Kat) is not something that needs to be achieved or put together slowly over time. It has to be acknowledged as a constant and indestructible reality. No level of technology can finally alienate nor divide us.

Abundance has manifested today and I have a Reed, a conduit: To elevate all my work and action in this dimension into dreamland; to bring science fiction and fantasy from dreamland down to earth.

The ironies of the universal artistic mind (1-Chuen) led me out of the cave of the ego and back to real people and real challenges. These are the challenges that I face when I move from the abstract musings of the artist to the crafty handiwork of the artisan.

Tzolkin Celeb Parade

How freakish is it that Freud and Jung are one and the same (10-Ben) as far as the Tzolkin goes? And Salman Rushdie too? Boy, talk about some heavy-thinkers there. Just one glance at the list of distinguished gentlemen (couldn’t find famous ladies, sorry) who were born on 10-Ben, and you might begin to grasp what manifested destiny means.

Destiny on the 10th stage means that the conduit between Heaven and Earth has become a reality (Jacob’s ladder). The leaders/ladders born under the Ben sign (Like Obama, Ben-Gurion, Sarkozy, FDR, Menachem Begin) are well-known for their charisma, oratory skills, Dogma-with-impunity kind of preaching, authority, and amazing ability to sway the masses.

They are also known to be rigid and uncompromising to the point of annoyance.

Here’s Lou Costello (10-Ben) and Bud Abbot (12-Men) in a classic Baseball skit:
