" Synchromysticism:
The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

As timing would have it, I watched 'The X-Files' 
season 8, episode 15 titled 'Deadalive' today for the first time, straight after listening to Jack Heart speak about the
'Grateful Dead' on a recent 'Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio' podcast, which I wrote in this post -
An April Fool's Day Joke, or what?-)
I noticed that 'Deadalive' aired on April 1st, 2001, which coincidentally or not was April Fool's Day.
Three months after Mulder's funeral, another dead alien abductee comes back to life.
Skinner exhumes Mulder hoping that he too can be revived.
Skinner faces an impossible decision when Krycek offers him a vaccine that can save Mulder.
Unlike Hiram, the candidate is restored to his personal comforts.
His earthly career is not represented as coming to a close at this stage. 
His rebirth is an entirely different thing.
He is reborn into his own life.
He has symbolically passed through another kind of striking and dramatic change, a rebirth or regeneration of his whole nature as a man.
The death to which Freemasonry alludes is the death-in-life of man’s old self.
It is over the grave of a man’s lower nature that he must walk before he can attain the real heights of his worthiness.
He is resurrected to a higher life within himself.
What this means is that when our self-sacrifice is great enough, when our consciousness has been awakened enough, we are capable of taking on an entirely new quality of life.
We all begin our journey in Masonry as the typical guy in a state of ignorance and non-awareness. 
But we can end it by becoming, in our own ceremonial character as well as our innermost being, the perfected man.
That is the work before us.
It is our labor of a lifetime.
To us, this is the meaning of the resurrection of Hiram.
It is the Secret Word of a Master Mason.
To me 'The X-Files' is a train-wreck of a TV show and it derailed badly in season 8.
Even hardcore X-Philes thought season 8 was a joke.
The X-Files is Just One Big Stephen King Carney Sideshow Nightmare, Right Mike Clelland?-)
