In Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B Minor, Op.104 the second movement has a moment dedicated to (composed in memory of) his sister-in-law whom he loved.
“The melancholy second movement quotes a theme from one of Dvořák’s own songs, “Lasst mich allein” (German: “Leave Me Alone”). The song had been a particular favourite of the composer’s sister-in-law Josefina, who had recently died. Having loved Josefina before he consented to marry her sister Anna, Dvořák here paid tribute to his first love.
For the final movement, Dvořák builds a rondo structure upon a jaunty marchlike theme. In its final bars, brief recapitulations of melodies from the previous movements are heard.” [From Britannica]
In Schubert’s and Beethoven’s 9th Symphonies (the final movements) is an identical theme that was inserted by the composers to show their affection for one another. (Listen to both finales to hear the “identical” musical phrases).
And Schubert often quoted Beethoven, not only because he admired Beethoven but because he loved him (not homo-erotically however).
The fact that Schubert, as previously mentioned, quotes the Funeral March from Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony in his song ‘Auf dem Strom’ is of the greatest interest, as the song was first performed at Schubert’s concert a year to the day after Beethoven’s death. This encourages us – as it did the contemporary audience in March 1828 – to regard the whole event as a deliberate tribute to the dead Beethoven. Furthermore, although the actual words of the song are not relevant at this point (sadness at being carried away from home and love by the river), the fact that Schubert quotes a funeral march from Beethoven’s ‘heroic’ symphony certainly is.
And DaVinci signified his homosexuality in his painting of John the Baptist:
Of course most of you know about Conan Doyle’s story, Silver Blaze, wherein Sherlock Holmes solves the mystery beginning with this exchange:
Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”
It’s those little things that provide an opening to fact or truth, and in ufology there are a few such little things that can explain a UFO event or sighting is one just looks close enough.
Roswell (1947): the Haut Press Release indicating a “flying disc” was recovered and the Ramey memo.
Socorro (1964): the symbol seen on the craft (and drawn) by Police Officer Lonnie Zamora and the indentations in the ground left by the thing Officer Zamora saw:
The Stefan Michalak burn marks on his chest (1967):
The rut marks in the ground and the ripped trousers of Robert Taylor (1979):
You get the idea…
