Lizard King

"Celebration of the Lizard" played in a shuffle as track 88. The song begins with an escape from a city of "chaos and disorder" riding the snake through a king killing fertility rite giving rise to the Lizard King. Some lines:
Not to touch the Earth, Not to see the Sun, Nothing left to do but run, run, run
Primitive gyn rites as written in "The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion" by James Frazer.
Dead president's corpse in the driver's car, The engine runs on glue and tar, Come on along, we're not going very far, To the East to meet the Czar
The assassination of John F. Kennedy (33rd parallel) and the execution of Nicholas II as "Killing of the Divine King" fertility rites.
Sun, sun, sun, Burn, burn, burn, Soon, soon, soon, Moon, moon, moon, I will get you, Soon, soon, soon, I am the Lizard King, I can do anything
The setting of the Sun as a god-killing fertility rite (verse from "Not to Touch the Earth").
We came down from Carson and Springfield, We came down from Phoenix enthralled
Place names mentioned in the section "Names of the Kingdom".

At the end of the song Jim Morrison says "I am the Lizard King, Retire now to your tents and to your dreams, Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth, I want to be ready" after which the next song played in the shuffle was "Touch Me (Dialogue)" which starts with "Everybody ready?"

Coincidentally, I had recently viewed the Bohemian Grove Cremation of Care ceremony where an infant effigy is burned to the tune of "In the Hall of the Mountain King". Before the lighting begins the Owl of Bohemia sings
No fire, no fire, no fire, Let it be kindled in the world where care is nourished on the hates of men and drive Him from this grove, One flame alone must light this fire, One flame alone must light this fire, A pure eternal flame, A pure eternal flame, At last within the lamp of fellowship, Upon the alter of Bohemia
Hearing this, a mysterious symbol I had seen in a reflection the day before began to have meaning. The symbol in Furthorc is cen (~ken) meaning "torch" which according to proverb should not be dropped, as in Not to Touch the Earth. Through the precession of the equinoxes the scapegoat Capricorn transforms into the archer Sagittarius to fire an arrow through the heart of Scorpius undoing transference of evil. A telling connection is Philip K. Dick's last novel "The Transmigration of Timothy Archer" (1982), T.Archer or Toarcher. Hatchet-man -> Hachiman, Careful with that Ax, Eugene(ics)

Around this time I viewed another symbol in a reflection this time two white lines and a black circle which aligned to form 110 which triggered the following ceremony in my mind, the '11' representing the Twin Towers and the '0' representing ground zero:

The final piece I have found in this puzzle is the twinned deities Nun and Nuenet who collapse to the singular form Nu the abyss or underground river which supports the scarab beetle deity Khepri and seven Egyptian gods.

* Twin Towers each had 110 floors
* 2011 backwards is 1102
* The US won 110 medals in the 2008 Olympics
