I gave the whole event a miss when it was happening in July, mainly because I don't have a TV connection at home and I've never been overly turned on by athletics or extravagant grand spectacles. "It's a poor boy who doesn't like sport," sang the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and I suspect they were referring to me.
Many have speculated on the Masonic symbolism subtly or not-so-subtly interwoven into the ritual pomp and circumstance of the London Olympics 2012 - and, to be sure, the careful observer will spot quite a few clues that there's a lot more than meets the public eye about London as a hub of ancient magick and earthly power.

And the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony is a clear example of this. Getting the right balance of solemnity, grandeur, wry humor and sheer spectacle blended into a memorable multi-million-pound production was certainly no mean feat - and I believe Danny Boyle was the right man for the mammoth task,
In any case, the only reason I've embedded this 4-hour epic on my blog is because I just found it on YouTube and I'd like to watch the whole thing all the way through - when I find the time.
