Oedipus Rex PRESS RELEASE (28.2.2015)
THE OLDEST FALSE FLAG!
Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex" or “King Oedipus” was—if one is to believe conventional literary wisdom—written in 456 BC or 2471 years ago. Because the play contains a riddle (given by the Sphinx), it, too, has often been thought to be a riddle. There have been numerous attempts to decode the meaning of the riddle. The Freudian version (incest between mother and son) is the best known.
While Eso A.B. does not dispute that incest takes place, he brings to the play a radically different plot, of how the incest came to be, and suggests that the play, a ritual once, is one of the FIRST LITERARY WORKS WRITTEN TO DECEIVE THE PLAY’S ORIGINAL INTENT, AND, THUS, THE VERSION WE HAVE KNOWN UP TO THIS TIME HAS BEEN A POLITICAL FALSE FLAG.
To Eso A.B.’s mind, the cause or the ritual’s corruption is to deny it religious meaning, which turns the play into a secular drama. In the process of the story being written by its ancient censors, and in the process of removing from the play its religious content, a new content was added (Eso A,B, likens it to the adding of an 11th Commandment to the 10 known). This new content is what the riddle of the Sphinx is about. In short, whereas the answer to the traditional version of the riddle has been “man” or, better, “a human being”, the new answer to the old riddle of who walks on 4, 2, then 3 legs is “government”. The change from the first answer to the second is what the ancient redaction is all about. Eso A.B. attempts to restore to the play its original meaning.
The rediscovery of the ritual’s former meaning informs us of not only why it was FALSE FLAGGED, but how the consequences of the censorship have brought society to the edge of the current catastrophe. In effect, because the original story is a religious one, the censoring of its religious content deprived the world of an important theological lesson.
Some viewers of Eso A.B.'s version of the play may find themselves shocked and disbelieving. However, Eso A.B. reminds that “…we live in days when we are direct witnesses to many a false flag event, for example, the 9/11 attack, the
war, the civil war in the .
History has been and continues to be falsified before our very eyes almost every day. If we know this, it makes it
easier for us to imagine and accept that it has been falsified for well over two thousand
years.” Ukraine, and more
Eso A.B. has spent many years on writing and rewriting the story. An earlier version (named “King Ludi”) received the following reactions from authorities in the world of theatre in Latvija:
1] Andrejs Žagars, then director of the Latvian National Opera wrote: "…this interpretation is without doubt significant and reflects on the political situation in contemporary society."
2] Evita Mamaja, literary advisor to the Riga Dailes Theatre: "Your idea is truly interesting.... We are presently rehearsing for our next season Sophocles' tragedy "Antigone"... and we will definitely take your interpretation into consideration,"
3] Line Ovchinnikova, communications manager, of the Riga Russian Theatre writes: "...my impression is that this is wonderful reading stuff, and I have enjoyed every page... I find the topic and your attitude really fascinating...."
Speaking for himself, Eso A.B. continues:
"It is my hope that in our age, when the military and corporate world have gained a choke hold on civil society, someone will see in my ‘rewrite’ an opportunity to set the record straight. The story of King Oedipus can reopen discussion about political leadership by neans of religious authority or such authority as is based on taxation.”
Asked why no one is correcting the historical record, Eso A.B. answers: “I have written extensively about the whys in my ‘Esoschronicles’ BlogSpot series ”. While I blame the origin of the False Flag phenomenon on the West, I blame the East for its continuation, because it fears to admit that its adopted western methods have been a failure.. After all, ‘democracy’ is rule by endless dissention and compromise, which is--like it or not--rule by divide and rule.”
