In the children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum, the reader is introduced to a wonderful new world, as seen through the eyes of a little girl named Dorothy, and her dog Toto. Together with her friends the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow, Dorothy sets off to see the Wizard of Oz, in the hopes that he can restore her, and Toto too, to her place of origin, Kansas. When Dorothy arrives in the Land of Oz she encounters a land in strife, where political borders are clearly defined and despotic witches oppress the people through fear and magical persuasion.

Judging by the map (compiled by the eminent Prof. Wogglebug T.E.) it appears that the Land of Oz is a squarish land, divided into 5 distinct kingdoms or countries. There is Gillikin Country in the North, Quadling Country in the South, Winkie Country in the East, Munchkin Country in the West, and finally there is the Emerald City, which takes a central position in the heart of Oz itself. Despite a lengthy search on the highly erudite and reputable Wikipedia website, I was unable to ascertain the intended meaning as to the choice of colours used to demarcate each region in Prof. Wogglebug's map.* Therefore, and in lieu of a credible/forth-coming explanation, I have decided to embark upon my own investigation into this matter, and more besides.

You are, as ever, invited to join me.

In The Secret History of the World (by Johnathan Black) it is speculated that the identity of Dorothy's companions; the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion, serves to represent the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms respectively. It was suggested this was done in order to reference the belief systems of the Theosophical Society, of which Baum was himself a member. In light of this information, I think it likely that the composition of Oz was informed by the Hermetic and Esoteric Traditions outlined in Madame Blavatski's Theosophical Society and not, as some have it, in the Christian methodologies, as outlined in the Bible.

An important aspect of the Hermetic (therefore; magical) tradition is the correlations made between the four elements; fire, water, earth and air, and the cardinal points of the compass; north, south, east and west. Although the attribution of each element to their respective direction necessarily varies from one tradition to another, and even one individual to another, the conservative approach still applies in general;

Each of the four elements also has its representative colors, as used by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, whose tradition was itself derived from the Enochian Tradition of Sir John Dee. Subjugating the cardinal points, gives us;

It is clear from this that Baum's intention was to convey esoteric knowledge, and he did so in a very surprising and clever way.

The four cardinal points, along with their respective colours and elements provide the basis of nearly every ritual known to Hermeticism. In the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP); for example, the new initiate is asked to make the sign of the pentagram in the air before him/her, in a very specific manner. He/she is to do this for each of the cardinal directions (also known as Watchtowers), whilst intoning the appropriate elemental name. By doing so the magician (or wizard) is thought to be exercising a level of control over the elements, which may be useful to his/her practice later on. In terms of the Land of Oz, the emblem of the pentagram can clearly be seen depicted on the flag of Oz, in green. The reason for this is that the wizard or magician who is enacting the ritual is always thought to be situated at the centre of their own NSEW convergence, and thusly at the centre of the World. The colour green is also representative of the Heart Chakra. This is true of the Emerald City, which sits at the centre, or Heartland of Oz.

The Emerald Isle

Historically Ireland has had a total of 5 provinces; Ulster, Munster, Leinster, Connaught and Meath. Following the Norman invasion, Meath was dissolved into the neighboring counties of Leinster and parts of Ulster.

In its heyday, Meath would have been an important focal point for all the local chieftains and kings, featuring prominently in politics, rituals and folklore.

So successful were the Normans in eradicating this nuance of Irish history that few people today are  aware of the Fifth Kingdom ever having existed. The only readily available clue to the former existence of this lies in the Old Irish name for a 'county' Cuige. The word cuige literally means a fifth i.e. a fifth of the country.

In the Oz Saga, the four cardinal points (or kingdoms) are each ruled by a witch of either good or ill  repute. The Good Witch of the North (GWN) and the Good Witch of the South (GWS) each make up the North-South Axis. While, the Wicked Witch of the West (WWW) and the Wicked Witch of the East (WWE) make up the East-West axis. Based on this distinction it can be seen that the East-West axis is the Axis of Evil, while the North South axis is the Axis of Good.

Remember that the WWW comes from Winkie country, which is the yellow country on the Eastern side of Prof. Wogglebug's map of Oz. This, you'll note, is confusing. Could it be that the eminent Prof. Wogglebug has made a mistake? Don't get your hopes up. The confusion arises from the fact that, in the Land of Oz, the Sun rises in the West and sets in the East; something to do with the planets retrograde orbit around its sun. So from our perspective, the Wicked Witch of the West is the correct moniker, because to us the sun sets in the West. Get it? I am not sure if I do either.

Regardless, we can see that Winkie country is shaded yellow. This means that the WWW is an Air elemental. Recall that in the Wizard of Oz film the WWW is destroyed when Dorothy accidentally throws a bucket of water over her. This seems to suggest that only elements of opposite aspect have the ability to defeat witches of a specific elemental type. Compare this with the ruler of Munchkin land (blue) the watery Witch of the East. Although we do not see her directly, we infer that she was killed in connection with a hurricane when Dorothy's house falls on her, revealing the ruby slippers. So, in a sense, we can say that the WWE (a water elemental) was killed by her elementary opposite - air.

In the Land of Oz it appears that;

Water - destroys - Air
Air - destroys - Water
Earth - destroys - Fire
Fire - destroys - Earth
(The last two are sketchy because the GWN and the GWS are not known to fight each other.)

Hurricanes are an atmospheric phenomenon so obviously the storm that carried Dorothy to Oz was created by the WWW, possibly with the intention of doing away with her sister, the WWE.

Continuing with this line of reasoning, it appears that the four friends; Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin-man and Lion, can each occupy a cardinal position of their own;

Dorothy with her dark brown hair and farming background is clearly an Earthy kind of girl. Likewise the colour of the Lion's fur and its loud roar make it ideal as an Air elemental. The reasons for Scarecrow and Tin-man seem to differ, however. Recall that the Tin-man rusts in the presence of water, and that the only thing that can kill Scarecrow (as per the story) is fire.

Returning to the concept of the East-West plane being an Axis of Evil and the North-South plane being an Axis of Good for a moment, we can see that the horizontal plane/axis symbolizes death (lying down), where as the vertical plane is associated with up-rightness, honour, and things of that nature. Now where have we heard the terms "Axis of Evil", "North" and "South", "Towers" (as in the Watchtowers NSEW) before. That's right; 9/11 2001.

If the N-S Watchtowers are meant to stand for justice, truth, up-rightness and all that is good in society, then doesn't that mean that an attack on these two institutions is also a symbolic attack on all that is good and honest within society? You betcha. Was it the intention of the elite to build the Twin Towers just so that they could destroy them and there by seek to limit the influence of the Axis of Good in our world so that they could push their agenda of tyranny and evil across the globe? That again is correct.

In some sense, the Manhattan Island and the WTC complex - in particular - were constructed to emulate the Land of Oz. This information is already well known.

It is often commented upon, how the whole "world watched the events of 9/11 unfold on their TV screens." This statement feeds back into the acronym WWE (We Watch Everything). This perhaps an indictment of the voyeuristic nature of our society. In the aftermath of the tragedy a burgeoning interest in 9/11 swept the internet to an almost disproportionate level. This in turn feeds back into the acronym WWW (World Wide Web). This is to show that the web of corporate media who seek to control the internet belongs to the Axis of Evil.

Numerological data of above graph is as follows;

WWW/double-u, double-u,double-u = 2x2x2 = 8. If we continue this count around the graph in a clockwise motion, we get GWN = 9 and GWS = 11. This is again to show that the Axis of Good is referred to by the numbers 9/11 Furthermore, if we input the initials for the Wizard of Oz (WO) at the centre of the graph we get W+O, or WTO, the World Trade Organisation.

Summary (based on earlier notes):

The destruction of the North and South Towers of the WTC buildings was an attack on the N/S axis (the Axis of Glinda and the Good Witch of the North). This act was carried out symbolically by the Wicked Witch of the West (WWW) or by George W. Bush, who is also known simply as 'W'. As already stated, the island of Ireland is in some way related to the Land of Oz, with its 5-part divisions, and the Island of Manhattan, through the work of artist Matthew Barney. The links between New York and Oz are many and varied and can be found easily with a simple search on the Internet. But one of the simplest is the fact that OZ is equal to NY by substituting the order of the alphabet one place to the left (See Caeser cypher).

The (Pigeon House) Poolbeg Power Station is Ireland's version of the Twin Towers. Its red and white markings, which was so paint to stop planes colliding with it, evoke the evoke the colors of the WWE stockings. Therefore, the Poolbeg Power Station equates to the WWW and WWE axis (the Axis of Evil) while the WTC towers were the Axis of Good.

Should the Poolbeg station be destroyed to balance the destruction of the N-S towers? Probably.
But, remember no-one can die in Oz. All we ever see of WWE is her and stockings, with the characteristic red/black and white stripes, and that is all we see in the Dublin Power Station also. The WWE herself is crushed by the Pigeon House (i.e. Dorothy's house). It should also be noted that the reason why the PPS is painted that way is to stop planes from flying into it. This is ironic when we consider what happened to the WTC 1 and 2.
