Hey guys. I had to do sumthing about the thorn in 3 of the
films the thorn is one of the biggest and most unusual
character of them all! The Thorn starts in Halloween 5. It
plays a bigger role in Halloween 6(the film where ever1 learns
what the thorn is)! and in 666 Origin of Michael
Myers!(Producers Cut)It explains the thorn fully and has a lot
to do with it anyway if i find a pic ill put it down there
with the description of the thorn!
Thorn is the third rune in what is believed to be a group
of 33. That part is only speculation due to the different
beliefs through the years. But, it is speculated as the third
rune. Thorn is also known as Thurisaz, pronounced thu-ri-saz.
Thu...ri, like rig...saz with "a" as in father. The
base meaning to this is "Gateway, with thorns of
resistance." It also has been known as Dorn, you can see
there are many synonyms for this rune.
Thorns can be looked upon in two ways, as a barrier and as
a protection or a separator from the "other side" of
change. So, there is good and bad in thorn. In accordance to
that, thorn is a rune of testing and challenge, as well as
protection and defense. To simplify this, I'll try to state it
like this. Its Divinatory meaning is: Hardship, painful event,
etc. Obviously, this fits Michael to a "t." Its
magical uses are to aid in study and meditation and self
meditation. I find this amazing because Michael had TOTAL self
control and meditation. After researching, all of this is
finally coming together.
To understand thorn, you must realize all that's behind it.
So, it helps to understand where it falls on the tonal axis.
It spans from the fourteen (Earthly father), through the four
(the place of the Animals...possibly explaining his eating of
the dog in the first Halloween),the ten (the mind), the three,
the thirteen, and the one. The one is the place of Fire.
Obviously the fire explains the RAGE in Michael Myers. Some of
the potential negative trends are Demonic Influence, damage,
deception, and perishing of enemies. Well, looky what we have
here! All of those explain Michael Myers.
To help understand Thorn, here is the poem that goes hand
in hand with thorn:
A third song I know: If urgency tells me to tie the
opponent w/ magic. Then I dullen the steel of my foes So that
their swords will not cut anymore.
This poem can explain Michael's influence of thorn. They
believed a person was inflicted with this curse so that they
could spare the lives of all other people in that
Here is something you will find AMAZING! Under Christian
proselytizing influence, the Latin alphabet was generally
adopted, and only two runes survived: the wynn (yes, you read
correctly, the WYNN), which looked a lot like a P, and the
thorn, which looked like a "p" with a neck splint.
Isn't that amazing, that WYNN was one of the runes that
survived? Could this explain the fascination that Dr. Wynn has
with Michael's powers? Maybe this led to his name of
"Wynn!" Weird Stuff.
The lesson of this rune is to learn you must suffer. Not
only literal suffering, but also in the biblical sense of
allowing one's destiny to unfold as it should, and allowing
one's self to experience all that life offers us. There is
talk of "Giants" when talking of Thorn. Thorn is the
name given to the Giant. The Giants (not the football team or
the baseball team) may seem to be evil and destructive to the
Aesir, but they bring about change, and eventually clear the
way for a new age. Could Michael finally turn out to be
"not as bad as he appears?" After he does "his
job" maybe he'd clear up. I'll leave you guys with that
last thought. Hope some of this gives you a better
understanding on H6. I know this info surprised me a lot and
helped me understand H6. I really loved the WYNN part.
Thorn isn't just an evil rune. It can be both good and
evil. Depending on which way the rune is set, can determine
whether it's good or evil. This depends on which way the
triangle part of the thorn symbol is facing. You see, it can
also play a part in taking the evil OUT of the person cursed
with it. This also goes along with what I said they could
possibly do at the end of H7. How it can bring about that
change it's seeking. You never know, something could trigger
Michael to let the evil out of him, that protective rune,
Anyhow, I also thought I'd let everyone know how the thorn
rune can also double the size of any animal for the duration
of the spell. A doubling in this size would increase the
weight by four times. With this, a gain of 50% over the
"creature's" natural strength is probable as well.
Could this explain why Michael is not affected by bullets or
anything else? Can this explain why he got so BIG between
parts 5 and 6? Discounting the fact that George Wilbur put on
weight, could this be the explanation? The whole time that
Wynn had Michael locked away (the six years) could this curse
be building up in Michael? Thus, making him so much BIGGER and
STRONGER than ever? I think this seems too coincidental not to
be looked at! Look at the great storyline this presents. This
finally could explain why Michael can't be killed. He gained
all that strength over the years. Once that curse is lifted by
that protective rune, I feel Myers would slowly lose all that
power and bulk, returning him to a "normal"
