The insert shows a dog holding a lantern.
Why all the genie references in a book about atomic energy? From page one.
Centuries ago there was a story about a lamp that could do marvelous things. It was called "Aladdin's Lamp." This lamp never existed, but the story has lived because of the wonder of it.
This is the story of the atomic furnace-almost an Aladdin's lamp of a furnace- that can do marvelous things. This one is real.
The dog anamorphic is illustrated throughout the book.
In the first "I dream of Jeannie" episode an astronaut's capsule named Stardust One malfunctions and lands on a beach. The astronaut finds a genie in a bottle. Forty some years after the first Jeannie episode aired, NASA named a space probe Stardust. It's mission was to collect dust from the tail of a comet, in which it was successful.
The astronaut asks Jeannie to conjure up an airplane, and she conjures a falcon.
Jeannie is played by the actress Barbara Eden. "Ba" is the part of the ancient Egyptian soul that contains individual personality.
BaBa is a Sumerian god depicted with the head of a dog. Ra is the ancient Egyptian sun god, depicted with the head of a falcon.
So in that scene, we have the dog goddess resonator bringing forth the sun god.
Jeannie finally conjures a helicopter, so the astronaut can go home.
So this is the second instance we have a "dog" controlling the power of the Djinn. The Djinn often appear as a black dog.
In the above video at 3:16 3:37 and 4:28, a subliminally placed spooky looking disembodied head appears.
I gotta roll, can't stand still,
Got a flamin' heart, can't get my fill,
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all through my head.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah...
It would seem Robert Plant dreams of Genie as well.
I would not be able to complete this post without mentioning G'nort. Green Lantern was derived from Aladdin's Lamp, and G'nort is a Green Lantern in the form of a dog.
Now I just want to ask, Who let the Genie out of the bottle, or should I say "WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?
