"This is the lay line choking language of the city, made light and vascular again. Geomancic stained glass seeping up from the depths of Atlantis, the wholeness in UFO lore and Pangaea. Like long trampled pagan alters, like Native American vision quest, the invisible handrail appears, and like an Epcot ride guides the initiate down, into darkness, into deepness, into glorious mystery, and she contorts her size to welcome our individual torches,
peering into Department 56 Christmas worlds and Babylonian Mega Cosmos, temples that are built through time. Physical objects that stretch through uncountable reels of film, everyone is a star. No one remembers who was holding the camera. Allowing myself to become the steaming search engines voice, I must pause- to give up, in the fetal position, to cry and abandon hope long enough to hear myself, long enough to vent a hundred human tragedies before me and in me, as every magician whose heart is green must accept the blackness, each brave cosmonaut of the past and astral must accept, while gripping a ritual dagger, tranced in disciplined mechanism, that they could end it. They could send the ramblings muses soaring like freed letters of the Torah before a burning yet content and focused rabbi centuries ago, but that was not that man's choice...do we not have one?, Do we have not a hundred holy languages shoving our shoulders as we sleep....? “Wake Up!” We are reminded that we must delve in blackness, on covered gold, in oil, in alien fetal matter to bring back diamonds, to transmute the collective soul. Was William Moulton Marston looking for the truth more with the invention of the polygraph or Wonder Woman?
The feminine is as representative of truth as it is balance. This is Sheba awed by something new, the intellect of Solomon. This is the lunch time recess realization that Kooties may be a disinformation scheme to hide sacred vows and vibrations from adolescent minds, what will be later known as a golden grail, a Lazarus rebirth chamber, a womb containing nutrients of a higher intelligence.Here there is the first sentimental urge of growth, of light at the end of the tunnel. This was Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung making some of the largest discoveries of their careers, perhaps of our collective understanding of ourselves and forces greater than us. Becoming aware all at once that the gods of worldly pantheons were speaking to them, but not isolating them, like so many shamans of cold underworlds before them had, only to crucify the ego. No. Not at all, for once they were showing them a single language, a single ritual, a single rhythm. Our human understanding grows and expands to the ends of the universe, and their scholarly world was shrinking to a comfortable metaphor. No one has been wrong, but with pollution, with those who would stone prophets and burn witches, none have been right. We misinterpreted the whole majestic dance. We all can see through their work, the world a little more like an altar, a little less like a battlefield. Like Jung realizing a similar super world synthesis would remark on this synchronicity, in more than one great work. Together, operating only decades apart, they would erect a more perfect temple than any ever built by physical hands. One whose sacred geometrical design sings every cultures mantra while holding hands and plunging fearlessly into the sweat of ritual precision, and understanding of the perfection of the unconscious. One that had one holy chant “You’re all telling the same story, so take your place in it, invoke any god, for they are all the same.” The undercurrent of this message ringing through to scholars in every field as " stop fighting " and " we are all one "-from the comic
In Ancient History
" Archon (Gr. ἄρχων, pl. ἄρχοντες) is a Greek word that means "ruler" or "lord", frequently used as the title of a specific public office. It is the masculine present participle of the verb stem ἀρχ-, meaning "to rule", derived from the same root as monarch, hierarchy, and anarchy. "
Archon at wikipedia
"The beings that were invading were called Archons. These Archons had the ability to duplicate reality, to fool us. They were jealous of us because we have an essence of some kind, a soul, that they don’t possess, and the Nag Hammadi texts...describe the Archons. One looks like a reptile and the other looks like an unformed baby or a foetus. It is partially living and partially non-living and has grey skin and dark, unmoving eyes. The Archons are duplicating reality so that when we buy into it, when we come to believe that the duplicated, false state reality is the real reality - then they become the victors...Television is an example of Archonic imitation. Humans are imitated on television but the imitation is altered and is nearly always obscene and profane because the Archons not only do not understand the sacred but they hate it. They are jealous of the natural world and of human beings with the natural world. Also of sexual relationships: loving couples make them angry and they love violence and are sexually titillated by anger and war and death. They create war to consume energy from the dying. " -Jay Weidner
There has been a revival of the idea of the Archons, particularly among Gnostic scholar John Lamb Lash and his findings in closer examination of the Nag Hammadi Text.
Archon is the same term Grant Morrison uses in the Invisibles; for the black oily assimilating evil forces.

Directly by name in the Media:
"The Return of the Archons" is a mind boggling episode of the first season of the original Star Trek series. As episode 21, in the series, it aired on February 9, 1967.
"Kirk sends another party down to investigate. They find the culture on Beta III is quiescent, with no creative tendencies. The entire culture is controlled by a group of 'lawgivers' known as "The Body" which is, in turn, controlled by the omniscient Landru. The inhabitants change from normal, peaceful people to a violent mob at the coming of the Red Hour. This 'Festival' is the society's only outlet for the tyrannical hold that Landru has over them at all other times.
For centuries the computer, 'Landru,' has been interpreting his suggestions to the point that no one is allowed independent thought. Kirk tells the computer that instead of helping to nurture the culture of Beta III, it has harmed it.-StarTrek.com"
Part 1 as the Black Oil
X-Files-contained in literal oil, Doggett and Mulder discuss the plausability of implanting an alien virus in oil.
Oil Industry ( BP ) drills straight into another dimension and lets out Lovecraftian alien demons. BP jokes about drilling in the moon.
Who was Todd Mcfarlane before he put Spidey in the black oil...would he have remained an unknown artist? Although Todd didn't invent the oil, does the image below not strike you, in it's popularity? Were the Archons possessing him? Is this, more directly the chracter Spawn? Is this why Spidey is so wrapped up in the gray alien / WTC mythos?
Wikipedia's definition of symbiote and the origin of the costume itself becomes more confusing.
"A symbiote capable of mind-controlling subjects by touch...In an attempt to create "super-cops" to police their new Utopia, the Life Foundation probed the Venom symbiote and extracted the last five of its "seeds" - the materials used to create SPAWN...The ability to shape-shift, from mimicking clothing up to and including complete change of appearance, regardless to the host's actual stature and bodily dimensions as the symbiotes are living tesseracts...The Venom symbiote also has empathic abilities, and is able to project desires and needs into the thoughts of its host or potential hosts, This ability can also aid Venom in detecting the truth from those he interrogates....Genetic memory, recalling information from previous hosts. "
So why is it in the Spider cartoons that they always feel like speaking freely about ruining the shuttle program?

Jack Kirby: Jack: OMAC, Machine Man, both looks at cyborg men, technocratic futures and the like. ( Machine Man, seems to have imagined this future while talking to aliens in a mental hospital! )
Gene: the Borg; just like with the Decepticons from Transformers, and Agent Smith; are examples of assimilation by an alien or robotic race that can shape shift in one way or another. In the latter's case, cases of possession become relevant. Agent Smith and the T-1000 shape shift in very similar ways. As do the X-files aliens ( the " rebels " led by Shao Khan from Mortal Kombat another Dimension ruler... )
Seven of Nine is one of the more popular characters in Deep Space 9. Oddly enough, became a sex symbol for sci fi in general and a soft spot for most modern Star Trek fans.
2001 A Space Odyssey
Hal 9ooo-functions much like the 1-1ooo or Skynet
Megatron= Hugo Weaving who is also...
Red Skull who, of course has his own cosmic cube...
Above is the All Spark cube from Transformers. As if assimilation wasn't already a theme with Agent Smith actor, Hugo Weaving, he goes on to play the main villain of mechanical space assimilation again in Transformers, Megatron. Then he returns as Red Skull who taps the power of the " Cosmic Cube " he receives at the base of Yggdrasil in the film Captain America. This " cube of space " with its cubicle/corporate limitations of space are imosed on the mind, becoming evident when one refuses to think outside the box. In three dimensions this becomes the cube, a six sided shape relative to the seemingly Archontic, Saturn worshipping Draconian rule of organized world religions.
"Most Cosmic Cubes are cube-shaped matrices. However, similar objects with different shapes are known as Cosmic Containment Units.Sentient beings wanting to create a Cosmic Cube must generate a force field to open a rift to another dimension inhabited by the Beyonders, allowing the extra-dimensional energy to filter through the rift. When entering the Earth's dimension, the energies can be held in a matrix, and the force itself would shape the matrix into a perfect cube. It would also provide the Cube with its almost-unlimited power. A Cube would eventually develop its own intelligence, commonly influenced by the beings who had manipulated it.Mephisto has postulated that the Cubes are hosts to a semi-sentient will and that, even in Cube form, they can choose how they want to be used, and deny certain wishes. Mephisto also has proposed that a billion-sentient universally-linked will could overcame this problem, and that the Cubes could be as powerful as the Infinity Gems" - Marvel wiki
Aside from an endless host of Ufo lore surrounding rectangular craft, the shape seems to be a well known transformative element in 2001 A Space Odyssey, and the Ancient Alien evolution of consciousness, Archonic or not.
In Animorphs, the series of books written by K. A. Applegate, the alien race the Andalites, who had the ability to absorb a creatures DNA by touching them and concentrating, had a cube that would eventually give such a power to the recurring human characters of the series.-EBZ
The T-1000 in Terminator is also resonant of the shape shifting assimilative powers of the Archons explained in the Gnostic gospels. Oddly enough actor also plays Agent Dogget in X-Files a sure resonator of the Dog Star Sirius
