1. Exaltation to divine rank or stature; deification.
2. Elevation to a preeminent or transcendent position; glorification: “Many listeners have attributed Don Orgone’s current apotheosis to the subversive power of his artistic vision”
3. An exalted or glorified example: Orgone’s latest represents a grand apotheosis of mixtape culture.
This month’s Dubcast is from a special guest – New York’s #1 Selector – Don Orgone with his very special Cyclology selection and mix mashing together many many different styles and influences into the mix. Enjoy!
Cyclology is the study of cycles or, the mathematics of history.
The knowledge of perfect numbers goes back to the mists of antiquity. It was used in Chaldea and very early Egypt.
The definitive writings on this subject date from Thales, who lived from 640 to 547 B.C. His pupil Pythagoras (580-500 B.C.), the author of famous theorems, traveled to Egypt where this education was completed by the priests of Ra at Heliopolis and Memphis.
These heirs to the greatest sacred mysteries taught him the value of the Sirius Cycle. According to this theory, not only celestial phenomena but all terrestrial events repeat themselves in the same order every 1461 years.
The man who made the theory famous and gave it all its value was Plato, for he set the true golden number at 25920 years; and this number contains all the others. These 25920 years correspond to the complete precessional cycle as seen in the Mayan calendar.
At this moment in time we are approaching the end of yet another of these 25920-year cycles.
We’re hoping for feedback on the not yet final dubcast 28 – We’re still not 100% sure on the order of tracks and mixing / edits. Tell us what you do and do not like and suggest tracks for inclusion anywhere in the mix, delete, replace, overdub etc. Thanks!
