[Katherine Weaver (Scarlet Women) S2 E6 " The Tower that fell short".]
"Project Babylon" in The Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is identified by Weaver as a super-sophisticated computer program known as "The Turk", It has been given the nickname "John Henry".
The name is used metaphorically, as John Henry beat the machine itself, but could not stop progress. In the realm of the Terminator series, "progress" refers to Judgment Day.
John Henry is an American folk hero, famous for having raced against a steam powered hammer and won, only to die in victory. He has been the subject of numerous songs, stories, plays, and novels.
Like other "Big Men" (Giants/Nephilim) such as Paul Bunyan and Pecos Bill, John Henry also served as a mythical representation of a group within the melting pot of the 19th-century working class. In the most popular version of the story, Henry is born into the world big and strong weighing 33 pounds. He grows to become the greatest "steel-driver" in the mid-century push to erect the railroads across the mountains to the West. When the owner of the railroad buys a steam-powered hammer to do the work of his mostly black driving crew, to save his job and the jobs of his men, John Henry challenges the owner to a contest: himself alone versus the steam hammer. John Henry beats the machine, but exhausted, collapses and dies. In almost all versions of the story, John Henry is a black man and serves as a folk hero for all American working-class people, representing their marginalization during changes entering the modern age in America.
Seen below "Steel" resonance has come into awareness. John Henry being a man of Steel syncs him with The Man of Steel aka Superman. Superman also had a special edition for John Henry making him a Superman "Man of Steel".
Superman has also been identified with Barak Obama during his campaign and Barak has had a John Henry type underdog victory over John McCain.
Also Shaquille Oneal is synced as Superman or The Man of Steel as he played John Henry Irons in Steel, plus Oneal has a Superman tattoo and refers too himself as the Superman. Oneal also recently became a member of The Phoenix Suns last February making him a Giant Phoenix/Sun Messiah.
There is a persistent belief in alchemical and hermetic tradition in the existence of two suns: a hidden one of pure "philosophical gold," consisting of the essential fire (Phoenix) conjoined with aether, and the apparent one of profane material gold." The "dark, consuming fire (Phoenix)" of the material sun conjoined with the common metal leads to its being called the "Dark" or "Black Sun".
Philosophical - Aether (Thought) + Philosophers Stone (Phoenix/Mushroom) = Eternal (Pure) Gold.
Physical - Common Metal + Philosophers stone (Phoenix/Fire) = Material (Black) Gold
2008-2012 is also a period of Change or Alchemical transmutation with Barak Obama as president of the United States who campaigned and pledges under such word. However not change for the better of the common people.
Order (Barak) out of Chaos (Bush).
Physical - Bush - War + Martial Law = Fascism
Philsopohical - Barak - Fear + Bailout = Buyout = Nationalization = Fascism.

X Marks the Spot
Now jumping themes from the Pittsburgh Steelers as metal resonating, they were also formally known as the Pittsburgh Pirates at conception in 1933 and Pittsburgh's baseball team is currently entitled the Pirates.
Pirates are known in the modern day as the outlaws of the seas who rob and "steel" for treasure/gold/metal. Pirates however also came into media resonance again for some reason in 2008-09 mostly due too the Somalian pirates. And the 2008 NFL Superbowl was also held at Raymond(Sun mound) James Stadium home of the Tampa Bay(Bundle of sticks on Fire/Fasci) Buccaneers(Pirates).
Pirates also have the tale involving treasure maps which was first popularized in Treasure Island and represent where a pirate has previously stashed his horde.
Coincidentally the treasure they mostly plunder and bury is gold the desired metal in alchemy. X can also be seen as the point of transmutation and is found in X-Mas as a symbol for Jesus Christ and the Cross.
The Chi Rho is also one of the earliest christograms used by Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two letters in the Greek spelling of the word Christ ( Greek : "Χριστός" ), chi = ch and rho = r, in such a way to produce the monogram ☧.
Although not technically a cross, the Chi Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ. And the XP is also similar too the Rx (Too take-Recipe) of medicine from pharmacies, while medicines main logo is the Caduceus or Serpent entwined staff which looks similar too the Chi Rho.
Metal = Non living energy/Currency
Drugs = Living energy/Currency
From the Pharmacratic Inquisition: The Root of All Evil
What is interesting about the Caduceus is that its bearer is usually associated with Mercury/Hermes. The word "merchant" derives from the root word, "mer-cury". To be a Merchant and purchase Merchandise you must be the bearer of Mercury. As this merchandise was commonly herbs, spices and drugs.
Today the dollar sign is likely the caduceus, though often said to evolve from the Mexican or Spanish P for pesos, or piastres or pieces of 8.
The sign's ultimate origins are not certain although it is widely accepted that it comes from the Spanish coat of arms, which carries the two Pillars of Hercules and the motto Plus Ultra in the shape of an "S".
[S2 Ep9 TSCC: Three Dots resonating our recent metal "Steel"ers (John Henry/Pirate) victory.]
Now returning too The Sarach Connor Chronicles which has recently returned from its Christmas break, Sarah has become obsessed with the three dots which were painted on the basement wall of the Connors' home by Wells, a resistance fighter sent from the future, dreaming about them frequently. ("Complications") This caused her to engage in a search for the three dots.
Looking online, John found a company with the three dots in the logo: Dakara Systems. ("Strange Things Happen at the One Two Point") John, Cameron, Derek and Sarah targeted Dakara, but discovered that it appeared to have nothing to do with Skynet.
While Sarah is still in search of a meaning of the three dots she attends a UFO convention ("Earthlings Welcome Here") where she mets Abraham whom with a help of a psychologist leads Sarah to a warehouse in the desert, Sarah gets shot, after that lying in the floor she has a vision of a flying machine representing the three dots.
The three dots however lead her on the right path to the discovery of the Hyperalloy which contains Coltan named for Columibite and Tantalite, a metal that is being used for the new Terminator/John Henry endoskeletons and what maybe used for the flying objects see has seen or hallucinated by Sarah.
Niobium (Greek mythology: Niobe, daughter of Tantalus), or columbium (/kəˈlʌmbiəm/), is a chemical element with symbol Nb and atomic number 41. A rare, soft, grey, ductile transition metal, niobium is found in the minerals pyrochlore (the main source for niobium) and columbite.
Niobium was discovered by the English chemist Charles Hatchett in 1801. He found a new element in a mineral sample that had been sent to England from Massachusetts in 1734 by a John Winthrop, and named the mineral columbite and the new element columbium after Columbia, the poetical name for America. The columbium discovered by Hatchett was probably a mixture of a new element with tantalum.
Niobe was the daughter of the semi-legendary ruler Tantalus, called the "Phrygian" and sometimes even as "King of Phrygia" . Although Tantalus ruled in Sipylus, a city located in the western extremity of Anatolia where Lydia was to emerge as a state as of the 8th century BC, and not in the traditional heartland of Phrygia, situated more inland and centered around Gordion. The city of Tantalus carried the same name as the mountain on which it was founded, Mount Sipylus, and few traces remain of the settlement , An Anatolian princess, Niobe married Amphion of Thebes and Greek mythology acted as a vehicle for her historical record mixed with legends. Niobe was the sister of Pelops, who gave his name to the Peloponnese.
Columbia; Liberty; Phrygia = Liberty Cap (Psilocybin)

The International is a thriller film, directed by Tom Tykwer and starring Clive Owen, and Naomi Watts. The film was inspired by the Pakistani Bank of Credit and Commerce International banking scandal.
Interpol agent Louis Salinger and Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Eleanor Whitman are determined to bring to justice one of the world's most powerful banks, the International Bank of Business and Credit (IBBC) which funds terrorist activities. Uncovering illegal activities including money laundering, arms trading, and the destabilization of governments, Salinger's and Whitman's investigation takes them from Berlin to Milan, where the IBBC assassinates Umberto Calvini, an Italian prime ministerial candidate. Following a lead on the assassin to New York City, Salinger is involved in a gunfight in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. An ally of Salinger in the NYPD tracks down the assassin's handler Wexler, who helps Salinger reach Istanbul, where the CEO of the IBBC is conducting an arms deal. Both Wexler and Skarssen are killed by a hitman contracted by Enzo and Mario Calvini to avenge their father's murder by the bank. Salinger is left stunned; his investigation, pursuit and determination having lead him to nothing. However, during the credits, it is indicated that the bank continues with its plans and is successful, despite the death of its CEO.
