disCERNing The Times, James Joyce, & Quincunxial Electrodynamics
Matthew 16:3 (KJV) 3 And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can disCERN the face of the sky; but can ye not [disCERN] the signs of the times?
Luke 12:56 (KJV) 56 [Ye] hypocrites, ye can disCERN the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not disCERN this time?
“Red sky at morning, sailor take warning.
Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.

Gal 3:1 (KJV) — O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
Gal 4:9 but now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and beggarly elemental spirits, whose slaves you want to be once more?
elemental – Google Search
An elemental is a mythic being in jainism and the alchemical works of Paracelsus in the 16th century. There are four elemental categories: gnomes, undines, sylphs, and salamanders. These correspond to the Classical elements of antiquity: earth, water, air and fire. https://www.google.com/search?q=elemental&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari
THE WITCHCRAFT OF CERN
“Finnegans Wake is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce that is significant for its experimental style – as well as its resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language”. […]
“In the first chapter of Finnegans Wake Joyce describes the fall of the primordial giant Finnegan and his awakening as the modern family man and pub owner ” (A PUB IN HIS PREVIOUS NOVEL ABOUT TROY THAT JUST HAPPENS TO HAVE A 21 ON IT…) HERE IS THE FIRST “WITCHCRAFT INVOCATION” SENTENCE IN THE BOOK FINNEGANS WAKE!
“Riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle.” […]
“The entire work is cyclical in nature: the last sentence—a fragment—recirculates to the beginning sentence: Joyce himself revealed that the book “ends in the middle of a sentence and begins in the middle of the same sentence…”. http://www.stevequayle.com/pdf/CERN.pdf
Quincunx – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A quincunx /ˈkwɪn.kʌŋks/ is a geometric pattern consisting of five points arranged in a cross, with four of them forming a square or rectangle and a fifth at its center. It forms the arrangement of five units in the pattern corresponding to the five-spot on six-sided dice, playing cards, and dominoes. It is represented in Unicodeas U+2059 ⁙ five dot punctuation or (for the die pattern) U+2684 ⚄ die face-5. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quincunx

disCERNing the quincunx.
The Dubliners by James Joyce, excerpt:
In one of the benches near the pulpit sat Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Kernan. In the bench behind sat Mr. M’Coy alone: and in the bench behind him sat Mr. Power and Mr. Fogarty. Mr. M’Coy had tried unsuccessfully to find a place in the bench with the others, and, when the party had settled down in the form of a quincunx, he had tried unsuccessfully to make comic remarks. As these had not been well received, he had desisted. Even he was sensible of the decorous atmosphere and even he began to respond to the religious stimulus. In a whisper, Mr. Cunningham drew Mr. Kernan’s attention to Mr. Harford, the moneylender, who sat some distance off, and to Mr. Fanning, the registration agent and mayor maker of the city, who was sitting immediately under the pulpit beside one of the newly elected councillors of the ward. To the right sat old Michael Grimes, the owner of three pawnbroker’s shops, and Dan Hogan’s nephew, who was up for the job in the Town Clerk’s office. Farther in front sat Mr. Hendrick, the chief reporter of The Freeman’s Journal, and poor O’Carroll, an old friend of Mr. Kernan’s, who had been at one time a considerable commercial figure. Gradually, as he recognised familiar faces, Mr. Kernan began to feel more at home. His hat, which had been rehabilitated by his wife, rested upon his knees. Once or twice he pulled down his cuffs with one hand while he held the brim of his hat lightly, but firmly, with the other hand. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2814/2814-h/2814-h.htm
