************HGW XX/7 - SECOND DIVISION INITIAL REPORT ****************** SUBJECT: The Cock No.7 Death Box DATE: ??/??/???? AGENT: Elle Siomedam The mysterious box, now termed the Cock No.7 box, was discovered in a pensioner -Audrey Day’s attic in Winchester . Upon opening the box and discoverin g a vast collection of, in her neighbour ’s words, “obscenitie s”, she had a heart attack and died. Second Division was called in, in the hopes of discoverin g the secrets of Death. This report summarizes our initial findings. The box contains a diverse collection of documents, notes, literature , strange newspaper clippings, artefacts and images. Upon further investigat ion, it revealed that they belonged to a London based group named Cock No.7. We believe this group was made up of lost souls trying to find balance in their lives. They believed that in order to deal with life, you have to come close to death. The contents ranged from warped opinions to weird truth/lies to fantastica l ideas. We found works by artists that were related to Death and a range of different researches on the subject also. The names of artists and other people mentioned were noted and First Division is already on their way to pay them a visit as this report is being written. From further analysis of the contents, I believe members of the group even managed to reach to a certain realm where certain objects were obtained. These include a letter from the Dead, a token for a boat ride in the Underworld and a handbook by an artist named Celyn Cooke, whom we believe to be a Death Mystic (name also noted and on First Division’s Wanted List). First Division’s attempt to find the Cock No.7 group failed (see report code: C-hUNTOO7) . There are no clues to why the box appeared in Day’s home and her connection to the group. At present, not much is known of the group but by going through the collected samples enclosed here (see APPENDIX D), we could get an idea of what they discovered . I can conclude that this group, like us, were trying to reach Death’s secrets and from various records might have even met Death and from then on vanished. Magic and voodoo were clearly at play here, which led to my deduction that this could also be the cause of their disappeara nce. Case filed as ON-GOING status. Further reports and analysis to follow. ***************************REPORT

New disease reported to take thousands down en thousand people are affected daily by the Missing Door Syndrome (MDS), reported T a representative from the Department of Health

today. Sufferers of MDS are unable to locate doorways, due to the excessive production of the whoremoan –SENDEDNIMWORAN, and therefore experience extreme difficulties in getting anywhere in life. Most sufferers remain in one place, usually their homes. Due to their inability to reach anywhere, they tend to die due to starvation, if not cared for by a carer. This new disease is terrifying. We are still in shock that so many people were suffering in silence before and most were unable to get out of their homes to get help.” says a GP in Farringdon. Chemical treatment with the drug - 3YE-Driht, produced by drug company Phi-zor, is reported to be effective and will become available as of 2012. In the meantime, it is important to watch out for others in case they have fallen victim of this disease.

Exit is not the answer

D

emonstration by protest group Seceaf was held today at the WTF cemetery. Protesters were protesting against death, saying it is unproductive and that “exit is not the answer”. It was alleged that the group insist upon practicing the art of everlasting living, which involves hiding a skeleton, the symbol for death, in the closet.

CAR CRASH KILLS 2 IN MEXICO

A

car crash on Mexico’s Highway 1 has killed a young British couple, H Erlim, aged 26, and K Roberts, aged 27. The victims were on their holiday travelling to La Paz, when a car driving at high speed in the wrong direction collided with their vehicle. “The driver was going very fast in the wrong direction and it looked like his brakes failed” one witness of the accident told local media. With the lack of shoulders, guard rails and deficient road signs, Highway 1, the road from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas is considered to be extremely dangerous.

DEATH XIII T

- Tarot Card of the Issue

he Death card, number 13, which when drawn logically conjures up the notion that death is imminent. Having also dramatic representations in many films, where actual physical deaths do occur, it is naturally a frightening card that people would consider as negative and rather not see. However this card seems to represent more than just the end and in a way it is really quite liberating. Facing the image of a skeleton on the card, sometimes as a grim reaper holding a scythe, the notion of death is obvious – it is the Death card after all. However taking a closer look from another perspective, the skeleton hints at renewal. It represents the stripping away of things - material and/ or psychological that we no longer need, stripping down to the core or to the bare foundation of ourselves, from which we start again and hence signalling regeneration and most of all Transformation. The Death card is really about Change and Transformation. Change, like Death, is something that we can be certain of. Nothing last forever and remains the same; we are in a constant flux of change. Death here could represent a conclusion to a current situation and like a doorway opens up to a new perception that leads to a new lease of life, where the world, as we know it, will be annihilated as we undergo a monumental Change. This in fact is a Transition, in which we move from one phase to the next. A white rose is normally present on the card. The Rose, the lotus flower for the West, symbolises the unfolding wisdom, where upon unwrapping its layers reveals the heart, in which lies profound beauty. In alchemy, it is the spirit that grows within each of us. The rose here is white signalling purity, clarity and the promise of new beginnings. Just like a blank white canvas, from here we begin (again). It can also convey the notion of impermanence, a reminder that we can only appreciate things when we know that there is loss.

CARD XIII

Death means time for Change. When viewing it in a more cyclical manner, where to everything there is a season, then this card brings the message that Winter comes so there can be a Spring. • BF

Fly me toA Tibetan the Moon Sky Burial Pictures and words by Lucy Calder

The

sky burials took place in Litang, which is a Tibetan area of Sichuan in China. The town is one of the highest in the world, at an altitude of about 4000m, so the air is very thin and the light is sharp and bright. The cairn in the background of some of the photos [ next page 2nd image top left] is an ovoo, used to worship the mountains and sky.

Basically, what happened was the bodies were brought up to the charnel ground in sacks in the back of a relative’s car. While I was there two sacks were dumped out a few hundred metres from each other and the dead naked bodies were tipped onto the ground without any ceremony, all bound up. This was when we three foreigners backed away. One guy I was with had to go down to where the cars were parked at this point because it was too much! The body was untied and then attached at the neck to a post with a red ribbon. A man with a big knife made cuts all over it - neck, stomach, thighs,


between the fingers and toes etc. Plus he cut off the soles of the feet and the top of the head. This was hard to watch so I didn’t concentrate too hard! There were hundreds of vultures hopping around and they were so eager to feed they had to be kept back by men waving sticks [3rd image in the background]scary, because they’re big birds, with sharp beaks and talons. I was glad the body was an older male, not a female or a child. The body further away from us was much younger, but there were fewer relatives around it. When the man finished making his cuts, all the people stood back at once and the vultures immediately swarmed in to feed. They cleaned the flesh off the bones in less than five minutes and then hopped around fighting over smaller body parts. This was when the the rogyapa (body-breaker) got down to work, smashing up the skeleton with the back of an axe. It was hard work and he had a sheet of polythene wrapped around him to keep him clean. He mixed tsampa (barley flour) with the bone meal and various helpers threw the mixture to the birds. This process took a long time and most of the relatives sat around talking and smoking. The rogyapa didn’t mind us taking photos and he laughed and joked with us. Apparently there is no gravity or sadness at this type of burial because the Tibetans believe that the soul will find it easier to move to the next stage if surrounded by light-heartedness. After a while, the relatives were more interested in my friend’s roll-ups than in the body breaker. At the very end the brain was mixed with tsampa and thrown to the birds - they leave the greatest delicacy until last. I found it hard to see a body being cut up, but once there was only a skeleton left it was much easier to deal with. It all felt incredibly natural and much more preferable to being laid fully dressed into a box and buried under the ground. The Chinese government tolerate the practice but they think it’s barbaric. Not many Chinese tourists visit Litang as yet but the entire Tibetan culture is under threat by the relentless Chinese expansion. A large influx of western tourists wouldn’t help either, but at the moment Litang is still remote enough to cope with visitors.
