Occultism

Welcome to the Unveiling (Part 3)

According to Elle.com[1], the dual, competing signs of Saturn and Jupiter indicate a Hegelian dialectical relationship[2], producing a synthesis of opposites.

According to astrologer Kelli Fox of Astrology.TV, the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter is highly connected to a significant shift in power.

“Traditionally, [the Great Conjunction] relates to the rise—or fall—of royalty and power. If power does fall at the end of 2020, we can bet that it will be down to people power having exposed dangerous and manipulative conspiracies and underhanded dealings,” she previously told ELLE.

In astrology, both Jupiter and Saturn are related to power and authority, however the two are very different leaders. While Jupiter is the ‘fun boss’ who’s all about health, prosperity and clocking off at four to grab team drinks, Saturn tends to place greater emphasis on limits, rules and deadlines. And when the two are forced to play co-leads, as they do in a Great Conjunction, it generally results in a power struggle. Think: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (Jupiter energy) leaving the monarchy (Saturn energy). Coincidence? We think not.

Furthermore, the duality of these dueling energies tends to kick off huge cultural movements that see things change fundamentally, whether we are prepared for it or not. Politically, things tend to move away from “how they have always been done”, with an “out with the old, in with the new” philosophy set to permeate across policies, elections and sociopolitical movements for the next 20 years.

Considering the Reichstag Fire-like event that occurred on Epiphany Day on January 6, this would make sense. The Reichstag fire that occurred at the German parliament building, four weeks after Hitler was sworn into power, was used as a pretext to pass the Reichstag Fire Decree by the Nazi Party. The Nazi’s claimed that the communists were plotting against the German government, which made the fire pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany. Never let a good crisis go to waste![3] Coups and countercoups is the name of the revolution game for the communist takeover.[4] Over at the Secret Sun, Christopher Knowles highlighted the Roman and Assyrian aspects of Baal Hadad’s return on Capital Hill.[5]

Returning to what was discussed in Part 2, the child of the Woman Clothed with the Sun is often either equated with Jesus Christ, the Church, and even Lucifer. In each of their own ways, represents the New Man who is the god of the Age of Aquarius. This is the true Revelation. The Apocalypse of John foretells the end of one age and the birth of a new Aeon. This could also fit well with the Thelemic religion, as the child also represents the Crowned and Conquering Child, as we saw earlier. The new epoch began not in 1904 but in 1945, 40 years later. In the early morning before the dawn on July 16th, 1945, in the desert of the Jornada Del Muerto (Journey of the Dead Man), when Man first divided the indivisible. As an answer to this event, in December 1945, the Nag Hammadi library was unearthed. The atom bomb was unleashed to give man the power to turn night into day. This bomb would eventually lead to the fusion bomb, harnessing a transmutation process which until modern times only occurred within stars. This is the Age of the Star.

The Woman Clothed with the Sun is literally depicted in the Tarot as well, which is the Empress. The Empress is said to be the pregnant mother, as is the woman of chapter 12. Verse 12:1 is almost an exact description of many representations of the Empress (especially the BOTA card). “A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.” This association with the Woman Clothed with the Sun combined with the planetary association with Venus to the Empress should be obvious. Venus is of course, the Morning Star, or Lucifer. Thus, directly below Kether onto the Tree of Life and above the Sun, as if attempting to rival it is the fallen angel! This might also suggest that Lucifer, the Light Bearer, is the “mother” of the Son, or bearer of the Sun (Tiphareth). In texts like Ascension of Isaiah tells us that Jesus was crucified by Satan and his demons in the lower heavens.

Interestingly, as noted in my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, the verse prior to verse 12:1 that mentions the Woman Clothed with the Sun references the Ark of the Covenant: “Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of the covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.” The Ark of the Covenant was represented on the Tree of Life by the High Priestess, path 13 that crosses through Da’ath. The Ark of the Covenant is the same as the Ark of the Throne of the Virgin (Isis was known as the Throne of the Pharaohs). The High Priestess is the presence of God (i.e., the Shekinah) that is said to rest upon the Ark. The two pillars represent the two cherubim that are placed on the lid of the Ark. The High Priestess is assigned to the letter Gimel, which means camel. This suggests the desert of Set. According to the Wikipedia entry for the Ark of the Covenant:

“…After its creation by Moses, the Ark was carried by the Israelites during their 40 years of wandering in the desert. Whenever the Israelites camped, the Ark was placed in a separate room in a sacred tent, called the Tabernacle.”

This leaves little doubt that this card symbolizes the Ark, and the Woman clothed with the Sun emerging from the Ark just as the Empress emerges from Key I the High Priestess. The path of the Empress also crosses through the path of the High Priestess as if symbolically emerging from it. The Virgin becomes the Mother with Child. In my book, I also connect Barbelo with its origination from the Queen of Heaven as envisioned in the Book of Revelation chapter 12, and El Shaddai (“God with Breasts”) in Genesis.[6] Interestingly, Saturn or even Aion is assigned to the World card, as if it were the Demiurge ruling over its creation. The card is assigned to path 32 on the Tree of Life, which is also assigned to the Hebrew letter Tav, the final letter of the alphabet, and thus equivalent in a sense with the Greek omega and the Latin Z.

The World Tarot card looks a lot like Aion, or female Mithras surrounded by the four living creatures of Ezekiel and Revelation.
Aion

In Brian Desborough’s They Cast No Shadows, the author suggests that the Book of Revelation was written by Julius Piso, like much of the New Testament as well being crafted by the Roman Piso family without furnishing proofs.[7] However, Desborough places Mithraism and Gnosticism as the foundation for Revelation as the author of Revelation seems well-versed in Gnostic terminology and writing formats. For Desborough, the Sun Lady “appears to represent the gnostics, with their knowledge of the zodiac, while the dragon’s diadem identifies the capture as the High Priesthood, the antithesis of Yahweh” (p. 204). The author also suggests that the seven church communities referred in the first chapter of Revelation were the last bastions of the Gnostic Church. There are many similarities which Desborough lists between Mithraism and Revelation. However, one that he does not list connects with the Hellenistic deity of Aion, the lion-headed hypercosmic demiurge of unbounded/ultimate time and space, alpha and omega. The number 777 is also associated with Aion, as it does connect with the seven stars of Pleiades and the Gnostic Church, as the YouTuber Ancient Mystery reveals.

The Moonchild is a product of Yesod[8], but also Daath through the path of the High Priestess (who is assigned to the Moon) that crosses through the Abyss. It is the camel that one rides through the Desert of Set or the “Black Pilgrimage.” Does this suggest a sex magick operation with the High Priestess? If we follow the details of Liber 49 and the Book of the Anti-Christ by Jack Parsons, that High Priestess is Babalon herself. Recall how Revelation describes Babalon as being dressed up in various jewelry and drinking from a golden cup filled with the human bodily fluids directly created from fornication, which would be sperm and vaginal fluids. Her cursed title is as follows: Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

The Lust Card.

The Lust card of the Thoth Tarot deck symbolizes the Demiurge: The Child of Chaos. It is the lion headed serpent (Leto and Teth); the Gnostic Chnoubis, from the lust of the Leonine Beast which comes forth from the descent into matter of Tiamat. Genesis is the act of Lust. Babalon completes the cycle of the Demiurge. The Virgin Mary connects Virgo who gave birth to the Fisherman Pisces, so Babalon as Leo (via the Lust tarot associations) fulfils this role with Aquarius. Virgo is the opposite sign of Pisces and Leo the opposite of Aquarius. She is the hidden side of our Age of the Wormwood Star (key XVII being assigned to Aquarius).

The Fifth Pentacle of Mars from the Key of Solomon.

The Fifth Pentacle of Mars is also the Eucharist of the Gnostic Church of the Demiurge. In the Key of Solomon there is this comment concerning the fifth pentacle of Mars: Around the figure of the Scorpion is the word HVL. The versicle is from Psalm xci. 13: “Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder, the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.” The above verse recalls the description of the Demiurge as the lion-headed serpent. These are also the two animals associated with the path of the Lust card on the Tree of Life; assigned to the Hebrew letter Teth, meaning serpent, and ruled by Leo. The scorpion was thought to sting itself to death if placed within a ring of fire. Therefore, it relates to the phoenix, who dies in a consuming flame, and is reborn from its ashes. Some of this symbolism relates to the pelican who was thought to stab its breast with its beak to feed its young. The association of Mars with the Scorpion also brings us back with the King of the Bottomless Pit, Apollyon/Abaddon.

This is a snapshot taken from the Greater Key of Solomon, and the figure of Shaddai the Almighty looks curiously like Dionysus or the Horned Moses as well. It also tells us that all angelic spirits are forced to bend the knee to the First Pentacle of the Sun. A practitioner of both Solomonic magick and Enochian magick—John Dee, was also thought of as a Demiurgical figure by Tracy Twyman. In the article “Is John Dee the Demiurge?”[10] Tracy Twyman writes how we are buried under an artificial universe constructed by sorcery:

Dean Martin once famously proclaimed that “It’s Frank Sinatra’s world, we just live in it.” I am currently thinking the same, literally, about one of the West’s most influential scientists, astronomers, religious philosophers, magicians and prophets: John Dee.

I have recently written about my theory that John Dee may have created the universe simulation we’re currently living in. I think he may have become the figure of “Ouranos” or “Oannes,” a.k.a. “Vishnu” to the Hindus. The name Oannes is recognized as the origin of the name “John.” The Babylonians remember Oannes as a wise god with a fish tail who came out of the sea to teach them the wisdom of civilization, most notably, astronomy.

John Dee, in fact, is largely responsible for our current view of astronomy in many ways. He was also an expert in manipulating light and the perception of light to render the appearance of a three-dimensional experience from something flat.

I think this depiction of Vishnu “crossing the universe in three steps” actually may show John Dee manifesting the three dimensions of our universe.

Later in the article, Tracy points out how John Dee discovered an alchemical formula to quite literally “Solve et. Coagula” the entire universe. Interestingly, John D. Rockefeller also has a similar name as his later descendants would write something called the “The Rockefeller Foundation. Annual Report 2010”[11] which is an outline of the coming global reset initiative of the World Economic Forum along with the communist/globalist wet dream called the “Green New Deal”.[12] The CERN facility’s campus in Geneva, Switzerland also features a statue of Shiva Nataraj, the chief Hindu deity that oversees the alchemical and infinite destruction and transformation/rebirth of creation.[13] Shiva, like Baphomet, also has the powers to “Solve et. Coagula” the universe into the “prima materia” and reconstituted into something else. Considering the Book of Revelation is purported to be written by John the Revelator, the idea of John being the herald of the “New Aeon” is a reoccurring theme. 

First I came across information about how significant Belgium was in the life of John Dee, court astrologer and intelligence agent to Queen Elizabeth I. He invented the so-called “Enochian” ritual magic system—or rather, channeled it from self-identified “angels” using a divination technique called “scrying.” Alchemy was one of his primary studies, and when I did the séance you just saw, his alchemical treatise Monas Hieroglyphica was already a subject in the story of Genuflect, as well as Dee’s alleged interest in the London Stone artifact.

Monas Hieroglyphica is about a secret formula to recombine the elements of the universe into one thing—the Monad—thus uncreating the universe, with the power then to create a new one. Specifically, these elements are represented as metals, corresponding to the seven “classical planets” or heavenly lights recognized by the old world, which included the Sun, Moon, and five visible planets. Dee wrote it in Antwerp, Belgium, in an inspired frenzy, between January 25 and March 31 of the year 1564. Afterwards, he bragged to the Queen about having discovered some extremely powerful secret.

Other authors like Colin Low (as we saw earlier with his article) have recognized there was a strong Demiurgic element to John Dee and the spirits he interacted with.

Less easy to rationalise is what comes next. When I began to read Dee’s angelic transcripts I was struck by the thought that the God of Dee’s angels was the same demonic demiurgic God I was already familiar with in gnostic texts. It is difficult to give much substance to this feeling, other than to say that the original gnostics derived their demiurge by taking the worst qualities of the God of the Jews, transforming him into a demonic entity. The God of Dee’s angels is similarly demonic – a God of wrath and punishments and ‘righteousness’ who fully intends (like the God of Revelation) to turn the world into a charnel-house. In his book Tetragrammaton, Donald Tyson points out the phrase “God of Righteousness” quoted in the ninth Enochian key (quoted earlier) is given as IAD BALTOH in Enochian, a transparent anagram of IALDBAOTH. For either of Dee or Kelly to be this ingeniously erudite beggars belief.

Returning to the book The Secret Rituals of the Men in Black (pp. 55, 57, 58), Allen H. Greenfield also has this to say on Oannes and the two Johns of the New Testament.

The aquatic “god” Oannes or John seems to be the primal key to the earliest contact between the Ultraterrestrials and human adepts.

If we examine the legend of John the Baptist, patron saint of Freemasonry, what do we find? A semi divine teacher, associated with the prophet Elijah (Matthew 11:14, 16:14, 17:12; Mark 6:15, 8:18; Luke 9:19) who ascended alive into heaven in a chariot of fire before many witnesses (2Kings 2:1-14), John stands half immersed in the water, baptizing others into Wisdom by immersing them. This apparently is an echo of that more remote John, Oannes, the Sumerian-Babylonian half-fish, half man who taught humanity by day, but returned to the waters by night. The only surviving cult of John the Baptist, the Mandeans, live in modern-day Iraq, the former Babylonian and Sumerian Empire.

His legend is often confused with that of Jesus, the dying and rising god first illuminated by John (their followers were in contention with one another for some time after John’s martyrdom). Crowley rightly associates the martyred Jesus with the martyred John, and, in his 777, gives the Tarot Trump associated with both as “The figure of a hanged or crucified man” with the title “The Spirit of the Mighty Waters”. The customary image of this Tarot Trump is of a man Hanging in an inverted position. This is similar to a relief on the main gate of the Temple Precincts of the late Mayan City Tulum in the Yucatan. The relief is often called “The Diving God” because of the inverted image of a celestial being, and because of the unique coastal location of “The Temple of the Diving God” at Tulum (the Mayans usually built their cities inland), but seems more like a “divine being descending from Heaven” rather than “diving”. Crowley notes that in the Aeon before that of Osiris, that of Isis or Water, this ‘hanged man’ is instead “The Drowned Man” which takes us back to the approximate time of the visit of the Oannes.

The Hebrew name for Jesus, Yehesua, is identical to that of the Old Testament wonder-working prophet, known in English as JOSHUA. JOSHUA = 50 = ODIN and FISH. Joshua was the Son of Nun (that is, son of the fish) and this also refers to a crucified sky god who brings knowledge (as in Odin; see 34° Rite of Memphis, “Knight of Scandinavia”). This is one of those eerie rare exact parallels; JOSHUA and FISH having the same value points to this ancient cryptomasonic tradition of the tutelary (that is, teaching) amphibious star gods.

In Masonic lore, the “two Johns” of the New Testament get interchanged in the Eighteenth Century. John the Evangelist is substituted for John the Baptist, but the latter is, in magical lore, associated with the Astrological Sign Cancer and late in the month of June, thus revealing, once again, the same origin in Oannes.

Odin was known as the mercurial god of wisdom, poetry, war, and even the seeker after his own death. The same cannot be said for the “Seeker After Smooth Things.” One website[14] tells us about this group of Pharisees:

SEEKERS AFTER SMOOTH THINGS, or “Givers of Smooth Interpretations” (Heb. דּוֹרְשֵׁי חֲלָקוֹת, doreshei ḥalakot),a designation given in the *Qumran texts to certain people who followed a different (and presumably less exacting) application of the law than that favored by the Qumran community. At the beginning of the Zadokite Admonition (cd 1:18) those who paid heed to the “man of scoffing,” the “spouter of lies,” are said to have “given smooth interpretations” (a phrase probably derived from Isa. 30:10, where the rebellious people say to the prophets, “speak unto us smooth things, prophesy delusions” – i.e., tell us what we like to hear). From samples of these “smooth interpretations” given later in the same work (cd 4:19ff.), with special reference to the marriage laws and the rules of purity, it seems most probable that the people referred to are the Pharisees.

In the *Thanksgiving Psalms the tension between the community and the “seekers after smooth things” finds repeated expression: the psalmist has become “a man of dispute for the interpreters of error… a spirit of jealousy to all who seek after smooth things,” (1qh 2:14ff.) and he praises God for having “redeemed the soul of the poor man (evyon) from the seekers after smooth things” (1qh 2:32). Those who were formerly his friends and companions have become “interpreters of falsehood and seers of deceit,” who (he says) “have devised plans of Belial against me, to make me exchange Thy law, which Thou hast engraved on my heart, for ‘smooth things’ to be given to Thy people” (1qh 4:10ff.).

Isaiah 30:9-11 tells us more in full about these “seekers”:

That athis is a brebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord:

10 Which say to the aseers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us bsmooth things, prophesy cdeceits:

11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

In a Wikipedia article about the Seekers After Smooth Things[15], it tells us how they will eventually be hung on trees, much like Judas, Odin, and even Jesus (as discussed in Galatians). In the end, they lose.

The context within the Pesher Nahum describes the seekers as an organized violent group and claims they can be responsible for numerous deaths. They are also blamed for their impression of others by misleading kings, princes, priests, and ordinary members of the nation. The seekers are also seen as traitors who act opposite of the divine plan. The view is that at the end of days the seekers after smooth things will be unmasked and despised, their misleading will be over and they will face punishment. One punishment suggested in the Temple Scroll for those who oppose god is to be hanged on a tree until death.

In a few texts in the New Testament, it speaks of both revelations of Christ and the Antichrist. According to Clock Shavings and Tracy Twyman’s seances with Baphomet, the Anti-Christ would rise in America (Babylon as described by Revelation, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel) and become essentially the “King of Babylon” as prophesied in Ezekiel. According to the book Guardians of the Grail, written by a Christian evangelist called J.R. Church, it tells us that the Anti-Christ would descend from the chosen “bloodline of the Holy Grail.” In an article called “Return of the Once and Future King: A Revelation of Antichrist,” by Clinton Ortiz,[16]he writes about something similar with the Return of the Once and Future King—a fantasy novel about King Arthur, Prince William and the Antichrist; he also connects the Cathar Rex Mundi—something of which I’ve also spoken about in past articles. Ortiz has a less than positive opinion on Freemasonry, but what he reveals is worth researching.  

There are some who have much different take about the Grail bloodline. Ortiz would condemn this view as he does in the above article but does it by dismissing the idea that the Grail has lesser to do with Jesus and Mary Magdalene’s descendants and more to do with Joseph of Arimathea’s daughter (and the Virgin Mary’s cousin) Anna and Beli Mawr and his Celtic god equivalent—Benenos, the sun god or “Lord of Light” celebrated on Beltane, who exists his opposite of chthonic underworld forces—similar to that of St. Michael fighting off the Dragon. And yet, Beli Mawr’s symbol is known to be associated with the Dragon—a beast who prefers to eat rotting flesh as opposed to living flesh.[17] This is the marriage between Christianity and Celtic/Irish paganism. The earliest British royalty can also trace their lineage to these two figures as well.[18] Interestingly, the Tribe of Dan and even Dan himself (more on this later), the son of Jacob, is based on the Irish pagan goddess, Danu.[19]

According to the Satanic article “Ordo Antichristianus Illuminati: Number of the Beast”[20] by Joshua Jacob Seraphim, he tells us more about the magical and solar nature of the number of the Beast, in which I decode in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, as Saturn, the hyper cosmic Demiurge.

Considering what David Icke said in his lecture on Saturn, and the statement that the ancient sun gods as simply different manifestations of Saturn/Chronos, the 666 cabalistic connection takes on a whole new meaning.[21] In his Against Heresies, Irenaeus argues that 666 is a particularly “fitting” number for the name of the beast in Rev. 13:18:

Since he sums up in his own person all the commixture of wickedness which took place previous to the deluge, due to the apostasy of the angels. For Noah was six hundred years old when the deluge came upon the earth, sweeping away the rebellious world, for the sake of that most infamous generation which lived in the times of Noah. And [Antichrist] also sums up every error of devised idols since the flood, together with the slaying of the prophets and the cutting off of the just {cf. Matt 24:37–38/Luke 17:26–27}. For that image which was set up by Nebuchadnezzar had indeed a height of sixty cubits, while the breadth was six cubits; on account of which Ananias, Azarias, and Misaël, when they did not worship it, were cast into a furnace of fire, pointing out prophetically, by what happened to them, the wrath against the righteous which shall arise towards the [time of the] end {cf. Matt 24:15/Mark 13:14}.

For that image, taken as a whole, was a prefiguring of this man’s coming, decreeing that he should undoubtedly himself alone be worshipped by all men {cf. Rev 13:15}. Thus, then, the six hundred years of Noah, in whose time the deluge occurred because of the apostasy, and the number of the cubits of the image for which these just men were sent into the fiery furnace, do indicate the number of the name of that man in whom is concentrated the whole apostasy of six thousand years, and unrighteousness, and wickedness, and false prophecy, and deception; for which things’ sake a cataclysm of fire shall also come [upon the earth]. (Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 5.29.2 [ANF 1:558]; square brackets original; curled brackets added).

666 is also a magically charged number as well. We must consult Brian Desborough once again in They Cast No Shadows (p. 209), who discusses 666 as a hammer-like force.

…it should be noted that the 666 solar force represents the masculine, generative force, the initiator of materialistic, instead of spiritual activity. Nations are animated by the power and justice of their leaders; when unrestrained, the 666 force is a director of tyrannical governments and the procreator of a society obsessed with violence, world power, and material gain, as is presently exemplified by the United States. When correctly fused with the earth force, the 666 energy assists in building a society possessing balance, vigor, and spirituality.

In the book COVID-19: The Great Reset by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret (p. 12), the authors surprisingly use alchemical language to describe the breakdown and purge of the current world epoch and into a new world system.

Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the “broken” sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory. Some analysts call it a major bifurcation, others refer to a deep crisis of “biblical” proportions, but the essence remains the same: the world as we knew it in the early months of 2020 is no more, dissolved in the context of the pandemic.

Just as we saw earlier with Tracy Twyman’s article about Tech-Billionaire’s Satanic plots to not only bust out of the Matrix and destroy the universe, other authors like Benjamin Fulford have made similar sentiments as well.[23]

Sometimes fact-based reporting leads into very strange territory. In my case, a forensic investigation into who controlled the financial system turned into a very deep rabbit hole indeed. It led me to meet with very senior intelligence agency and secret society sources who explained the concept of humanity being stuck in a matrix, created by an advanced artificial intelligence of unknown origin. Furthermore, they say this AI may well be evil or possibly insane. Now, with the global situation seeming increasingly bizarre and irrational, and with the financial system imploding, it is time to look at the evidence for this proposition.  That is because, if it is true, then the only way to liberate humanity will be to defeat this rogue AI.

The next person to talk about a rogue artificial intelligence being in charge of the planet was a man by the name of Paul Laine, who was from the Pentagon’s “men who stare at goats” psychic warfare division. Laine, together with a very senior silicon valley oligarch (whose identity I will keep secret in order to protect him) say the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence agency had also come to the conclusion we were dealing with some sort of AI. They noted that something was preventing humanity from leaving the Earth and that all space exploration had been stopped since the 1970s. Laine said NASA stood for “Not A Space Agency.”

Yet another source to confirm this conclusion was one of the last surviving members of the Majestic 12 group set up by former President Harry Truman to study UFOs and other unexplained phenomena.  This source also said MJ12 had concluded that all UFO-related incidents ultimately traced themselves to an AI.

The reason for bringing this up now is that NASA officials also contacted us to say that recently some sort of anomaly has been changing, in their words “the very fabric of reality.” This has something to do with the continuing but ultra-top secret activities going on in Antarctica.

What Benjamin Fulford is describing sounds not too far from what I have written in the article, “The Sun Lady Tales.” Here, I describe how other fortean/paranormal authors like John Keel have also described the “Eighth Tower”—sounds remarkably like what Fulford wrote—despite what people may think of Fulford. Tracy Twyman has also theorized that Saturn may also be some sort of alien, quantum A.I. as well, called the “terminal” responsible for generating the simulation/hyperdimensional prison-like interface called “the Test.”[24]

In his lecture, Icke suggests that the hexagram on Saturn is an example of cymatics: the geometric distribution of particles caused by sound waves. He also suggests that Saturn’s rings are a result of this, and that the whole “planet” is a structure sending out sound waves that are somehow affecting our perception of reality. This, he says, causes us to hallucinate the “hyperdimensional prison” that he believes we are being kept in by extradimensional aliens that appear to us sometimes as humans, sometimes as reptiles. His description of these hidden controllers greatly resembles the “Archons” of Gnostic myth.

Part of what keeps us in this prison allegedly is our perception of time, which he says is being generated by Saturn as well, which is fitting since Saturn has always been the god of time in mythology.

It is interesting to think of Saturn as the master controller of our universe. In Hermeticism and Gnosticism, Saturn was considered the highest “aeon.” In fact, the prophet Hermes Trismegistus was thought to have achieved his wisdom when he was brought to the sphere of Saturn, where from that perspective he was able to “look down” and see the pattern of the entire creation. This was how he obtained his knowledge of astronomical matters, and many other things. From the encyclopedia compiled by the group known as the Brethren of Purity in eighth-century Iraq, we read:

It is related about Hermes the Triplicate in Wisdom, who is Idris the prophet—peace be upon him—that he rose to the sphere of Saturn and turned together with it for thirty years until he witnessed all the states of the heavenly sphere.

To many Gnostics and Hermetists, each planet was considered to be an intelligence who ruled over a particular domain of creation. But these domains were thought of as spheres wrapped concentrically around one another, with Earth in the middle. These were the powers that keep us imprisoned in a false reality, according to the Gnostics, and who control our fate (as everyone thought the planets did back then). In order to escape the prison, one has to (either in one’s mind while alive, or in spirit after death) rise through each successive layer or sphere, challenged by gatekeepers at each stage. So in this view, Saturn was the sphere inside of which all the other aeons were encased. Considering that the central myth of Saturn (the Greek Chronos) is that he swallowed his own children into his stomach, where they continued to live and eventually escaped, and considering that these children were to be the gods associated with the planets, it may be that this conception of the universe is what those myths were hinting at.

Beyond this prison, however, the Gnostics claimed that there was our original, true, and pure reality, the Pleroma, which all of this false reality had come from, populated by beings of pure light. What could possibly be “beyond” everything we know? These are mysteries we shall continue to probe.

Elon Musk’s recent transhumanist revelation of “Neuralink” (with the backing of the World Economic Forum of the Great World Reset) sounds something straight out of Revelation as well.[25] Considering Elon Musk’s ownership over Tesla, it is also interesting to consider that former President Donald J. Trump’s uncle John G. Trump, a professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT was asked by the FBI to review Nikola Tesla’s research involving zero-point energy, Space Force, Q-Anon, divination rings[26], and flying disc-shaped hovercraft similar to that of UFO’s.[27] Al Bielek, Montauk, and the Philadelphia Experiments survivor claimed that he too traveled to the future multiple times to the year 2749, where humanity was reduced to less than 300,000,000, a number far below what the Georgia Guidestones prescribes to be as 500,000,00 for humanity to be in “perpetual with nature.” In the far future, humanity has long-established teleportation, interstellar travel, and communication with alien life, and live out their lives on floating smart cities controlled by quantum A.I., that hover over the world.[28] In another article, over at Gnostic.info, titled “Prisoners of Earth Come Out,”[29] it tells us basically the same thing, only in Gnostic verbiage.

The Adversary through various intrigues led astray a number of the divine extra-terrestrials, trapping them in human bodies. Some of the Pilgrims engaged in sexual intercourse with Earth-women. Frequencies were changed. They became trapped on Earth, unable to ascend the vibrational scale and re-enter their etheric world. Spiritual beings found themselves in dense bodies, bound on this miserable planet controlled by their Adversary. The Dark Lord’s rebel bands became their Prison Warders!

These Prison Warders (Archons) cast a spell of sleep over their captives. The Dark Lord and his Prison Warders see people as their property and view men and women as slaves bred to worship them. But the Prison Warder’s spell of ignorance is broken once you realise that you are a spiritual being in a human body exiled on this planet. This explains why the forces of Darkness are actively engaged in keeping humanity in mental, spiritual and physical bondage to the Earth. 

The story of Adam and Eve is an expurgated allegory of the seduction of divine extra-terrestrials by malevolent entities. Adam, the sacred texts tell us, was originally the issue and offspring of the Heavenly Father of Light, an androgynous figure with a bright shining form resplendent in his beauty. Seduced by the Adversary, Adam and Eve lost their radiant glory. Exiled from the Garden of Eden they had to survive in a hostile environment. They were able to have children through the physical process of birth. They and their children could experience sickness, pain and physical death.

Interestingly, in John, chapter 6 is telling us that in verse 66, it says that the various disciples of Jesus fell away from his discipleship.

52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. 59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? 61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore, said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

In the book and TV adaptation, Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke, it depicts a race of “Overlords” that have arrived on Earth during apocalyptic times of chaos, tribulation and uncertainty. The leader of these Overlords, Karellen, first manifests through the dead relatives of people all over the world, establishing trust through miracles, much like how Benjamin Crème—an avid Theosophist—would herald the sudden appearance of the Maitreya, according to his Wikipedia entry[30]:

In 1997 Creme made similar announcements that there would be imminent global TV broadcasts from Christ/Maitreya, though with far less media interest.[17] Creme stated that when the “Day of Declaration” occurred “The Christ will come on the world’s television channels, linked together by satellite. All those with access to television will see … [his face]. He will establish a telepathic rapport with all humanity simultaneously. While the Christ is speaking… [everyone will feel far more love than they’ve ever felt before, that massive outpouring of love will cause] hundreds of thousands of ‘miracle’ cures [to] take place simultaneously.” [18]

After decades of peace, prosperity and technological advancement has been established when these “Overlords” arrived—they finally decide to reveal themselves to the world—only to appear to mimic all the characteristics of your typical red-skinned, horned, winged Devil. These “Overlords” also reveal themselves to be heralds or servant drones for something called the “Over-Mind” who describes itself as the “collective unconscious” of the entire universe—which is a New Age code word for Lucifer, since at the end of the TV series (at least) the figure is depicted as a blurry yellow “shadow” which eventually shapeshifts into Milo’s (the main character) long-deceased girlfriend. Mankind along with the world are eventually annihilated right after the Overlords “rapture” their children out from their parents’ grasp as they “ascend” since they all display some level of psychic abilities as generation that achieved the next level of “consciousness” or “godhood” status.

It is made clear that these demonic helpers are there to harvest and feed this “Over Mind” since even their home planet is depicted as hellish since there is an odd mix of lava and high technology everywhere. The television show, while it is quite nihilistic and anti-climactic, is also obviously fallen angel propaganda meant to “initiate” its audience in their “mystery of iniquity.” I personally hated the ending and thought what really should have occurred was some sort of “War in Heaven” climax since the Overlords are clearly the bad guys. One blog tells us that Childhood’s End is a fable for our current zeitgeist.[31]

Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End is a fable for our time, an allegory that aligns and comingles our secular and religious traditions and deceptions, our hopes and fears, our illusive dream of utopia and peace, and the darker truths that such peace always comes with a price. The price of utopia is total control, a peace without freedom; a world governed by total awareness and transparency. No where to hide, only total acceptance of superior strength and technology. In this fable alien peace comes at the price of human enslavement without power or change, a sterile peace without honor or dignity only the neoliberal vision of a surveillance world where the masters hold all the keys to the future.

We learn that the Overlords are carrying out the plan of what they call the Overmind, and that they have done this over and over on many planets before earth. The Overlords who look like devils are both impersonal and without unique personalities, as if they represented the ancient Archons – or star powers of the ancient Gnostics. And the Overmind reminds one not so much of God as it does the demiurge, a blind and almost artificial intelligence that seems to carry out its initiatives in an impersonal and inhuman form that lacks all meaning and context. One of the side character, the “boy genius” Milo Rodricks, who throughout the series represents scientific and creative curiosity finds a way through his girlfriend to go to the aliens homeworld and is offered a linkage to the Overmind. He seems to realize that the Overmind is more a machine than some God out of mythology. Even the alien archons tell him that they are mere servants of this impersonal power, that they long ago had run the gamut of their own evolution and come to the end of their own abilities to advance further on the evolutionary scale. They know they are but minor servants and bit players in a cosmic scheme they neither control nor even benefit from in any significant manner. In fact they envy the children that are our successors. For it is the children of these last humans that will evolve into something greater than anything the universe has ever known or might they tell Milo. This plays into the whole transcendence theme that has been with us for millennia, so that the Platonic tradition with its roots in Shamanism; along with the Jewish Christian motif of end times and human transformation play out in our posthuman ideologies and mythologies of gnostic metamorphosis.

In another blog entry by Daniel Moler[32], he connects the occult concept of the Abyss with Childhood’s End.

In occult initiation, the Abyss is not Hell. It is a gulf which separates what humankind has known from what is unknown. It is a gap which separates the unattainable knowledge of the Supernal from the rest of manifestation. In Childhood’s End, as humankind evolves to the point where the Overlords are ready to relinquish their responsibility of guidance and allow humanity to take its next evolutionary leap into a new type if super-species, the Overlord Karellen states: “the human races was drawing slowly nearer to the abyss–never even suspecting its existence. Across that abyss, there is only one bridge?”

This is obviously a metaphor for the Overlord’s direction in which they took to put humanity on a specific path for the 100 years of their reign. At the same time, this terminology and its usage cannot be ignored as an esoteric allusion to the Abyss of the Western Mystery Traditions which all initiates must cross in order to ascend the higher order of Sephiroth on the Tree of Life.

The idea of an apocalyptic war in heaven is not just a Christian one but also exists in various other religious traditions. What is this War in Heaven, exactly? Why, it is the alchemical recreation of the universe! Could it be the time that Michael stands up, just before a time of trouble? Here is what Daniel 12:1 (KJV) says:

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

This “Over-Mind” sounds a lot like VALIS also known as “Vast Active Living Intelligence.” The semi-autobiographical novel VALIS was written by Philip K. Dick, who claimed he had a spiritual experience where he saw a beam of light penetrate his brain and learned about a life-threatening condition affecting his son that his doctors later confirmed. There was no way he could have known about his son’s health, so that was his confirmation.[33]

The light told him that the Empire Never Ended and that we are living in a time-loop of the ancient Roman Empire and its various illusions. According to the “Tractates Cryptica Scriptura,”[34] it tells us that “Real time ceased in 70 C.E. with the fall of the temple at Jerusalem,” and that:

“The great secret known to Apollonius of Tyana, Paul of Tarsus, Simon Magus, Asklepios, Paracelsus, Boehme and Bruno is that: we are moving backward in time. The universe in fact is contracting into a unitary entity which is completing itself. Decay and disorder are seen by us in reverse, as increasing. These healers learned to move forward in time, which is retrograde to us.”

Accordingly, we are quite literally “stuck” as a frozen, darkened glitch in the Matrix as time has not passed since the late Roman Empire. Some ancient Gnostic Christians devised a way out and were working to free the prisoners of the Black Iron Prison and ultimately destroy it. Perhaps the rituals and prayers set in various Gnostic texts like the Pistis Sophia and the Books of Jeu, were to jump start this process. Allen Greenfield in Secret Ciphers of the UFOnauts tells us more about VALIS:

Phil Dick’s V.A.L.I.S. (“Vast Active Living Intelligence System”) seemed a suitable point of departure. The phrase value of the complete term VAST ACTIVE LIVING INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM = 515 = I AM LIFE AND THE GIVER OF LIFE OF EVERY STAR, a most suggestive phrase considering that VALIS is supposed to be a kind of god-computer capable of transmitting meaningful transformative messages to Earth. The acronym VALIS = 41 = HER (repeated many times), but also = WHOLE. In the VALIS story, a magical child is created as a messiah. The child is female. Phil Dick died at age 54 during the filming of Blade Runner based (very loosely) on his antima- chine novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In his last year he became a follower of British contactee Benjamin Creme and maintained that his earlier works of fiction—allegory, really—contained a sort of cipher. The last of his novels published in his lifetime, The Divine Invasion, dealt with this theme from a Gnostic religious vantage point He maintained that the phrase “King Felix” was a cipher for the coming of a New Being, who would deliver humanity from the “black iron prison.” KING FELIX = 147 = RESISTANCE.

This VALIS entity functions much like the Logos can change its shape according to our perceptions as Carl Jung claims[35]:

..I cannot experience the miracle of the Mass; I know too much about it. I know it is the truth, but it is the truth in a form in which I cannot accept it anymore. I cannot say “This is the sacrifice of Christ,” and see him any more. It is no more true to me; it does not express my psychological condition….I need a new form (1977a, p. 276).

This is not to say that Christianity is finished. I am, on the contrary, convinced that it is not Christianity, but our conception and interpretation of it, that has become antiquated in face of the present world situation. The Christian symbol is a living thing that carries in itself the seeds of further development. It can go on developing; it depends only on us, whether we can make up our minds to meditate again, and more thoroughly, on the Christian premises (2010b, p. 44).

The War in Heaven motif also occurs in Norse mythology. In the story of Vafthruthnismal of the Codex Regius, it recounts the dialogue between Odin, the half-trickster god of wisdom and Riddle-Weaver, the giant. In their dialogue, they reveal their working knowledge of the origins of the cosmos, and the world, along with how the end of the world will come about through the catastrophe known as Ragnarök meaning “Twilight of the Gods” and even the “darkness of the gods.”

At one point, Odin asks the Riddle Weaver about how the earth and the heavens were formed. Riddle-Weaver responds by saying “The earth was made from Ymir’s flesh; the rocks were made from his bones. The sky was made from the skull of that ice-cold giant, and the sea was made from his blood.” Later in the same dialogue, the Riddle-Weaver also reveals that at the end of Ragnarök, Odin, along with many of his fellow pantheons, will die by the powers of the Titans. Valkyries in Norse mythology are also depicted as angelic helper spirits who assist those slain in battle and assist in transporting their souls into Valhalla. Daniel Mccoy, in his explanation of Ragnarök[36], tells us more about the Norse version of the End of Days.

In the book Revelations: Visions, Prophecy & Politics by Elaine Pagels, she compares Revelation 12 and 13 with Babylonian myths—pointing out that Marduk splits open the dead carcass of Tiamat to form the heavens and the earth, as well as Job’s tale of Yahweh battling Leviathan, the dragon of the abyss.

Horrified and fascinated, John watches to see how this heavenly battle will play out on earth. Furious at having been thrown out of heaven, the dragon determines to destroy the woman. He pursues her.

She escapes, having been given the wings of a great eagle, and flies into the wilderness to hide. When the dragon discovers her, he pours water from his mouth to sweep her away in a thundering flood, but she eludes him again as “the earth came to the help of the woman” and swallowed the threatening waters. Raging with frustration, “the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her children.”

Now the dragon stands on the seashore and calls forth two monsters as allies: And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads; and on its horns were ten crowns, and on its heads were blasphemous names. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave it his power and his throne and great authority … In amazement the whole earth … worshipped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast; who can fight against it?”

Arrogant, huge, spewing out blasphemies, the beast from the sea “was given authority over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all the inhabitants of the earth will worship it.” A second monster emerges from the land, a beast with power to force everyone on earth “to be marked on the right hand or the forehead” with “the mark, that is, the name of the beast”—apparently a number with secret meaning, “for it is the number of a human being: his number is six hundred sixty-six.” Only the children of the woman whom John saw in his vision dare resist—and for this the beast is determined to kill them.

What could these nightmare visions mean? And where is Rome—and the aftermath of war—to be seen in them? A close reader of the Hebrew Scriptures would see that John was invoking prophetic images to interpret the conflicts of his own time, just as the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah had interpreted the Babylonian War around six hundred years earlier. These ancient prophets had drawn upon what is perhaps the oldest story in the Bible, one that can be traced to ancient Babylonia, where priests inscribed it in cuneiform on clay tablets more than 2,500 years ago—a story probably told for hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of years before that. The story tells how, “in the beginning,” or even before the beginning of time, God fought against a great sea monster, the dragon of chaos, to bring forth the world. The Babylonian version tells how the sun god Marduk fought his mother, the great female dragon Tiamat, and her army of monsters, who embodied the ocean depths, the dangerous power of chaos. When Tiamat opened her huge jaws to devour him, Marduk drove the four winds into her mouth, distending her body, then split her in two “like a shrimp” to create from her the earth and sky, and placed them under his own dominion.

Nearly three thousand years ago, Israel’s poets and storytellers, familiar with such ancient stories, began to tell how Israel’s God, like Marduk, fought against a many-headed dragon, a sea monster whom they called by such names as Leviathan and Rahab. Some said that only after crushing and killing such monsters could God, like Marduk, establish the world and deliver it from the powers of chaos. Thus the author of Psalm 74 praises God for having vanquished Leviathan:

God, my king, is from old, working salvation in the earth. You divided the sea by your might; you broke the heads of the dragons in the waters; you crushed the heads of Leviathan; you gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.

John’s visions of such monsters, then, are modeled on creation stories even older than those in Genesis. Many scholars have pointed out that the opening chapters of Genesis were written considerably later than many other biblical writings—probably about four hundred years later than the chapters that follow—and later than some of the psalms. Yet whoever wrote the opening of Genesis probably knew the ancient dragon story, for Genesis says that even before God created the world, he began not with nothing, as Jewish and Christian theologians and philosophers later claimed, but with a formless void, chaos, wind, and “deep waters”:

“In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void [or chaos] and darkness covered the surface of the deep waters, while a wind from God swept over the waters.”

Some people thought that this ancient story implied that God’s power is limited, since it suggests that God, like Marduk, had to contend with a supernatural antagonist before he could create the world. Israel’s storytellers, perhaps to reassure their hearers that God’s power is uncontested, morphed the sea monster Tiamat into tehom, the Hebrew term for “the depths,” the primordial sea over which they say that “wind from God” moved “in the beginning.” Then, to show that no sea monsters lurked in those primordial waters, the Genesis account says that Israel’s God actually “created the great sea monsters”—and did so only after he created all the other sea creatures, on the fifth day of creation.

While the Babylonian story pictures the great sea monster as a female, the “mother of all monsters” and of all gods, Hebrew storytellers often speak of Leviathan as male. Others suggest that when God created these sea monsters on the fifth day of creation, he made them, like all the other animals, in pairs: Leviathan, a female monster from the sea, and Behemoth, a male monster from the land—apparently a version of the story that John of Patmos adapted to tell, in his Revelation, how the dragon’s two allies emerged, first the “beast from the sea” and then the “beast from the land.”

While we think of dragons as creatures of folktales and children’s stories, Israel’s writers conjured them as images of the forces of disintegration and death that lurk in the background of our world and threaten its stability. Poets and prophets took these images seriously—although not literally—to characterize Israel’s enemies in war. When, for example, Psalm 74 praises God for having “crushed the heads of Leviathan” and calls on him to “rise up” again and deliver his people from evil, the anonymous psalmist has in mind the Babylonian soldiers who smashed God’s temple and burned it to the ground in the year 586:

The enemy has destroyed everything in the sanctuary. Your enemies have roared within your holy place. … At the upper entrance, they hacked the wooden trellises with axes, and smashed all the carvings with hatchets and hammers; they set Your sanctuary on fire, and desecrated the dwelling of Your holy name.

The prophet Jeremiah, too, grieved and angered by the same war, speaks for Israel as he pictures the king of Babylon as a beast who devours God’s people:

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon has devoured me; he has crushed me … he has swallowed me like a monster … he has spit me out. May my torn flesh be avenged on Babylon!

The prophet Ezekiel, a refugee from that same war, mocks Israel’s ancient enemy, the king of Egypt—here a stand in for the Babylonian king who was the prophet’s contemporary—as if he were only a sea monster whom Israel’s God will haul up and kill like a fish…



Yet calling on God to “wake up” and fight the forces of evil acknowledges that destruction and death still wield enormous power. So Isaiah revises the ancient story to suggest that “in the beginning,” when God fought the primordial dragon, he failed to actually kill it. Thus Israel’s prophets began to project God’s battle with Leviathan from the beginning of time to its end, anticipating that, as Isaiah says, “on that day”—the great day at the end of time—finally God will “kill the dragon that is in the sea”:

On that day the Lord with his cruel and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan, the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting serpent, and he will kill the dragon that is in the sea. How shall this victory be won? Since Isaiah, like other prophets, sees the forces of evil embodied in foreign oppressors, he clings to the hope that God will send a messiah—a king divinely chosen to lead his people to victory. But in his own time, the prophet envisions God’s beloved, Israel, as a pregnant woman, crying out in anguish before she gives birth to the promised messiah: “O Lord, we sought you in distress, like a woman who writhes and cries out in labor pains when she is near her time.”

John of Patmos was immersed in the prophetic writings, and here he draws upon their images of Israel as a woman and “the nations” as monsters who threaten her, picturing Rome as Isaiah and Ezekiel had envisioned Israel’s enemies six hundred years earlier. John reshapes Isaiah’s vision of Israel as a woman laboring in childbirth to make it the central drama of his prophecy as he seeks to interpret the struggle that he and other followers of Jesus now face. Convinced that what he believes Isaiah foresaw has now happened—that is, Israel has given birth to the messiah, Jesus of Nazareth!—John envisions her as the “woman clothed with the sun,” being menaced by a “great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns” that furiously stalks her in order to devour her child the moment he is born.

To finish things off with all things related to the Antichrist, we must now turn our attention to the article “Antichrist from the Tribe of Dan” by C.E. Hill. In it, Hill connects the Jewish Messiah with the Antichrist along with Christian dualistic heresy for good measure:

It may not be significant, in this regard, that Marcion began his heresy in the immediate aftermath of the failed Bar Cochba revolt. R.M. Grant posits a connection between the famous war and rise of Marcion’s views about the Old Testament and its supposedly war-loving God. It is clear at any rate that Marcion’s views presuppose the existence of a virile Jewish Messianism in the second century.

And it may not be mere coincidence that our first explicit and unmistakable evidence for the Jewish Antichrist, wrought into a definite shape, does not appear until after Marcion. It is often forgotten that Marcion not only posited the existence of two gods—the just creator god of the Old Testament and the supreme gods—the just creator god of the Old Testament and the supreme and wholly good god—he also taught that each of these two gods had, or would have, a Messiah. The Messiah or the good god had already come once, but the Messiah of the just god was yet to come.

Marcion allowed the prophetic utterances of the Old Testament god would have a more or less literal fulfillment—the Jews’ Christ would come, and he would do precisely those things which the Jews hoped he would (Adv. Marc. 3.40.) That is, he would bring the Jews back into the land and would restore their nation and kingdom (adv. Marc. 3. 21; 4. 6, etc., and he would not die by crucifixion, 3. 18). But there was more. In Marcion’s scheme, according to Tertullian, the Jewish Messiah’s kingdom would not be final and enduring. Marcion also taught, somewhat surprisingly, given his distaste for judgement, that after the Creator’s Christ had appeared, the heavenly Christ (Jesus) would come once more and would destroy the earthly Christ’s earthly kingdom (Adv. Marc 3.4). Marcion’s idea of a battle between the son of the Creator and the son of the supreme God was well enough publicized in the second century to have become the target of Celsus’ sarcasm (Cels. 6. 74).

The correspondence between Marcion’s Jewish Christ and the Jewish Antichrist of orthodox authors is even noted at one point by Tertullian, commenting on Paul’s ‘man of lawlessness’ (2 Thess. 2) in Adv. Marc. 5. 16.

In other words, the Antichrist was the devilish son of the Demiurge! In the Wikipedia entry for the Tribe of Dan[37], Simon Magus, the font of all Gnostic heresy and black magician/proto antichrist is invoked as well.

Simon Magus, also known as Simon the Sorcerer and Simon the Magician, came from the village of Gitta (also spelled Getta) in Samaria, according to Justin Martyr;[12] a site settled by the tribe of Dan according to Josephus.[13][14] Justin, who was himself a 2nd-century native of Samaria, wrote that nearly all the Samaritans in his time were adherents of Simon. Surviving orthodox texts, such as those of IrenaeusJustin MartyrHippolytus, and Epiphanius, regarded Simon as the source of all heresies, including Gnosticism.

Ethiopian Jews, also known as Beta Israel, claim descent from the Tribe of Dan, whose members migrated south along with members of the tribes of GadAsher, and Naphtali, into the Kingdom of Kush, now Ethiopia and Sudan,[15] during the destruction of the First Temple. This position is supported by former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.[16] They are said to have fought with the natives.[17] Charles Upton relates the serpent voodoo God Danbhala as derived in part from a heterodox form of Ethiopian Judaism.[18]

Could this earthly Messiah be the same as the demon that theosophists like Benjamin Crème claim to be the long-awaited avatar or Ascended Master of the Aquarian Age—Maitreya or Sanat Kumara of the Great White Brotherhood? Interestingly, Allen Greenfield in his book The Secret Rituals of the Men in Black (p. 73), claims that Philip K. Dick eventually became an avid follower of Benjamin Crème! According to Wikipedia[38], Sanat Kumara hails from the much more “spiritually evolved” etheric plane of planet Venus but now dwells in Shamballa—an etherical floating city above the Gobi Desert, also equated with the City of Enoch. This Venusian colonization was assisted by the “Lords of the Flame” along with his consort “Lady Venus” (Ishtar/Ashtar/Ashtaroth?). The same Wikipedia entry tells us that Sanat Kumara will eventually possess an unaging body of a 16-year-old boy not born of a human mother, reminding me of Tracy Twyman’s investigations of the “anal homunculus” as an alchemical avatar of the Thelemic Antichrist. In one revealing article about the “Seven Rays”[39], it goes into Sanat Kumara and the Seven-Rayed deity. One part is worth quoting about the Demiuge and the Second Beast of Revelation:

Syncretistic interpretations and The Seven Rays:

Egyptologist Gerald Massey wrote in 1881 of what he described as connections between Vedic scripture, ancient Egyptian mythology and the Gospel stories. He theorized that IAO, the “Seven-rayed Sun-God of the Gnostic-stones” was also the “Serpent Chnubis”, and “the Second Beast in the Book of Revelation.” In 1900, he elaborated further, describing the unity of “the seven souls of the Pharaoh”, the seven arms of the Hindu god Agni, “the seven stars in the hand of the Christ in Revelation”, and “the seven rays of the Chaldean god Heptaktis, or Iao, on the Gnostic stones.

In the late 1940s, art historian and writer Ananda Coomaraswamy was curator in the department of Asiatic Art at the Museum of Fine Arts and built the first large collection of Indian art in the United States. His writings in the field of perennial philosophy and the Traditionalist School included complex essays collating symbols of ancient wisdom and metaphysics from widely diverse cultures including Indian, Islamic, Chinese, Hellenic, and Christian. He wrote that the seven rays of the sun appear in both Hindu and Christian symbolism, representing similar concepts; and in particular the symbolism of the seventh ray that “corresponds to the distinction of transcendent from immanent and of infinite from finite”, and that “our Axis of the Universe (skambha, divo dharuna, etc.), Islamic qutb, and Gnostic ….. The seventh ray alone passes through the Sun to the suprasolar Brahma worlds, “where no sun shines” (all that is under the Sun being in the power of Death, and all beyond immortal’).”

According to Gerald Massey in The Hebrew and Other Creations[40], the Serpent was originally a guardian spirit as opposed to its corruption and degradation with the identification with the spirit of evil.

The Serpent itself in the Hebrew Genesis is neither an original nor a true type. Two opposite characters have been fused and confused in it for the sake of a false moral. Serpent and Dragon were primarily identical as emblems of evil in physical phenomena; each was the representative of Darkness, and as such the Deluder of Men. Afterwards the Serpent was made a type of Time, of Renewal, and, therefore, of Life; the Dragon-Crocodile a zoötype of intelligence. Both Crocodile and Serpent were combined in Sevekh-Ra. Both were combined in the Polar Dragon; and in the Book of Revelation the Dragon remains that old Serpent, considered to be the Deluder of Mankind. Both were combined in the Chnubis Serpent-Dragon of the Gnostics, which was a survival of Kneph as the Agatho-Demon or Good Serpent of Egypt. The Akkadian type as Ea, is the Good Serpent, the Serpent of Life, the God of Wisdom.

Now it was the Serpent of Wisdom that first offered the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge for the Enlightenment of Mankind; whether this be Egyptian, Akkadian, or Gnostic, it is the Good Serpent. And as Guardian of the Tree set in Heaven it was the Good Serpent, or intelligent Dragon, as keeper of the treasures of Astral knowledge. It was the later Theology, Persian and Hebrew, that gave the character of the Evil One to the Serpent of Wisdom, and perverted the original meaning, both of the temptation and the Tempter who protected the Tree; which has been supplemented by the theology of the Vitriol-throwers who have scarified and blasted the face of nature on earth, and defiled and degraded the starry Intelligencers in heaven.

While Sanat Kumara is also considered a “deva” (meaning “Shining One”) in Hinduism, he is also called the “Regent Lord of the Earth”—a title ascribed to both the Demiurge, and the Cosmocrator, Satan/the Antichrist. Sanat is also called the chief avatar of the Theosophist idea of the Solar Logos, which sounds exactly like what Joshua Jacob Seraphim is describing in his article as we saw earlier.[41] Alice Bailey calls Sanat Kumara as the “One Initiator” according to her book, The Externalization of the Hierarchy.

May the blessing of the Masters rest upon you as a group and as individuals, and may the Holy Ones Whose pupils you seek to become show you the light you seek, give you the strong aid of Their compassion and Their wisdom until you stand where the One Initiator is invoked, until you see His star shine forth.

The distinction between the Demiurge and Cosmocrator is made in my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, but essentially, church fathers like Irenaeus claimed that the Cosmocrator was the “creature” of the Demiurge. Incidentally, Irenaeus in Against Heresies (V.30.2) also would claim that the Antichrist would descend from the Tribe of Dan, as well, pointing to Jeremiah 8:16 as proof. [42]

The author Tim Claasan compares this relationship with that of the Dragon who gives authority over to the Beast that arises out of the sea in Revelation 13.[43] According to the author Jose M. Herrou Aragon, the author of the book “Primordial Gnosis: The Forbidden Religion,”[44] he reveals the true nature of the “Great White Brotherhood.”

In the last hundred and fifty years, these members of the white lodge have started to be described, each time with more clarity. Their names, appearances and characteristics can be found in books by Helena Blavatsky and in books by those who followed her, Alice Bailey being the one who stands out. We have spoken about one of the members of the white lodge: Satan Kumara. What a name! It was just too much and had to be disguised later on, changing it to Sanat Kumara. Each one of them, like the demiurge, has many names, many disguises to better deceive. Some of them have the real names of demons, like Maitreya, who is said to be “the real Christ”, or the “masters” Morya and Dwall Khul. Others have noble titles such as “Prince” Rakotzy, a true “Prince” of the darkness. There are many more, all similar. All these demons, empty eggshells of the demiurge, will be disintegrated in the pralaya along with everything created.

Herrou Aragon’s words sound something like what Tracy Twyman would have written regarding John Dee’s magical formula for alchemically destroying and recreating the universe. However, one can glean a certain sense of hatred of God or what Aragon considers to be the “Demiurge,” which certainly contains a Satanic bent. Once again, we must consult Titus Groan over at Over Lords of Chaos who goes into further depth about Sanat Kumara and his connection with the coming Aquarian World Society as his research is far too lengthy to fully quote here but worth researching.[45] However, one portion of the article called “The Occult Hierarchy’s Plan”[46] lays out the “Externalization of the Hierarchy” viz. their alchemical “Solve Et. Coagula.”

The true meanings are this: the “Great Work” is the spiritistic illumination of a minority of the world’s people operating in conjunction with “The Plan” for world domination by these illumined people and their Secret Masters often referred to as the “Hierarchy,” “Ascended Masters,” “Unknown Nine”, “Avatars,” the “Great White Brotherhood,” the “Secret Chiefs” and other such euphemisms.

In short, what “The Plan”, the “Great Work”, the “Ancient Hope” allude to is the Dark Empire of Secret Societies’ ancient agenda for the “new civilisation in Aquarius,” the “Age of Aquarius,” for Global Empire, for Global Governance.

A World Empire ruled over by the “externalised Hierarchy” recently emerged from the Dark Empire of Secret Societies’ shadows that will “take outer and recognisable physical control of world affairs” and will rule the world with “love” and “compassion”. 

A future necessitating the eradication of the majority of humans – the 90% –  those who are not illumined enough, who refuse to be illumined, those who cannot be illumined and those who it would be “compassionate” and “loving” to liquidate thereby releasing them from their suffering: free them from a “life not worth living.”

That is why the culling of the human population to “sustainable levels” is integral to the New Age Movement and to the Environmental Movement, which is under its sway.

Foster Bailey, Alice’s spouse, hinted at this in his book, Things to Come (1974)

“The new civilization in Aquarius will inevitably develop a quality appropriate to what we consider most valuable … Our children, and men … will have to live with the New Age standards. Those who do not will end up as irreconcilable outcasts.”

Foster’s “irreconcilable outcasts” are Barbara Marx Hubbard’s’ “destructive one-fourth [that] must be eliminated from the social body”… they are not members of the “500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature” they are the 90% of the world’s population destined for destruction ….  

“The Plan” and the “Great Work” are two manifestations of the conspiracy to inaugurate World Empire under overt esoteric rulership, which is the ancient dream of the Dark Empire of Secret Societies through the ages. 

The “Great Work” in a theurgical sense is really aimed towards the Adept, as Karl Stone tells us in The Moonchild of Yesod (p.181):

To the eyes of the uninitiated, the Magical Will seems hidden and immersed within a labyrinth, veiled in darkness. The unveiling process is synonymous with the work of the alchemists, transforming the V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (Vista Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem) into the Philosopher’s Stone. This is similar to gaining penetrative insight (prajna) into the nature of dependent origination and the understanding of emptiness, whereby the three klasas (greed, hatred and ignorance) of Buddhism which fetter and hold black ‘enlightenment’ within the aspiring chela are overcome. Thus, concealed within this realm of illusion or glamour, lies the formula of the GREAT WORK.

In another article by the same author, “The New World Order’s Demonization of Mankind,”[47] Titus Groan writes about where this world-wide conspiracy ultimately originates from:

There has been a conspiracy to subvert Creation since the time Lucifer raised his hand to strike the Father who created him.  A conspiracy that came to Earth when Archangel Michael vanquished Lucifer and his followers from Heaven. A conspiracy Yahweh – the Old Testament God, and His prophets told us repeatedly about. A conspiracy those behind it, are involved in it, and who seek to greatly benefit from it, wish to be concealed.

To understand this, means to accept History’s true nature. History does not exist in any other kingdom other than the human. Minerals, plants and animals do not have History.  History is mankind’s biography. Man’s enemies wish to keep him ignorant of his true biography, of his true spiritual nature, of his true destiny. This is why man’s enemies have expended enormous energy in falsifying his biography ….  Falsifying History.

Man’s enemies know that the falsification of history results in not only a society without history but also mankind without its true biography. Hence, the Jew calling himself “Karl Marx”, a Judaeo-Freemasonry agentur, could described it thus: “If you can cut people off from their history, they can be easily persuaded”.

History’s falsification, the corruption of Objective History, is an enormous endeavour spanning the millennia. Concealing fact, truth by our so-called leaders and wars’ winners, is only part of the agenda.

The true purpose of History’s falsification is keep man in the dark about the Great Conspiracy. To paraphrase George Orwell, they who control the past also control the future. They who control the present also control the past.

The movie Dark City was all about a parasitic, demonic intelligence inhabiting dead bodies who recycle human memories in other cloned bodies in a “reset” that happens every night. They are doing this in efforts to plunge the depths of the human soul or divine spark because like the “crypoterrestrials” are dying and need new host bodies. This is likely the root cause of their interest in mankind and this vast angelic rebellion that will eventually be settled on planet Earth. Many mystery schools throughout the ages have claimed that there is a mysterious group of elites or “masters of wisdom” that are secretly guiding humanity along towards their ultimate enlightenment or spiritual evolution. They are often called the “Ascended Masters,” the “Secret Chiefs,” or the “Great White Brotherhood” that act as “overlords” of various magical orders such as the Rosicrucians, the Caliphate Ordo Templi Orientis, the A∴A∴/Argentium Astrum (also known as the Order of the Silver Star and not Alcoholics Anonymous). John G. Bennett wrote a book called The Masters of Wisdom, explaining a “Demiurgic intelligence” manifested as this group. Ultimately, for Gnostic authors like Jose Aragon, the white lodge are simply devils sent by the Demiurge to ignite mankind’s “ascension” and merge with the Demiurge himself as opposed to those divine envoys or angels sent by Unknowable Father but appear to us as nightmarish creatures of hell because they are marred by the inferno of matter which we are enchained too.

Firstly, what appearance could a divine being, a Being of Light who enters this hell, have? Certainly not a happy face but one full of pain, disfigured by all the suffering. The sacrifice of Beings of Light, who invade the world of the demiurge to help men who have lost their way, involves the worst suffering imaginable.

Secondly, what colour did we say a sleeping man perceives the Uncreated Light? The darkest black of course, because True Light blinds the impure man. To be represented in black is an honour for a Warrior of the Spirit, because black signifies pure Light, blinding Light, True Light.

Thirdly, how do these Beings of Light behave when they burst into the demiurge’s universe? When the warriors of the black lodge infiltrate this created hell, they do so for a limited time, to carry out a precise mission and then to get out as quickly as possible. They have no time to waste, since this impure world is an inconceivable torment for them. On reaching the great demented monstrosity of the demiurge, the right thing to do is to hit the exact spot where it hurts and escape. For those coming from the unknowable world, the war against the created is a Total War. For them, nothing created deserves to be saved.

If a common man could see these beings, he would be scared by their aggressiveness and destructiveness. He would perceive them as dangerous enemies, like the beings imagined by Lovecraft, or those in films such as “Hellraiser” or “Predator”. Viewing reality through his body and soul, the common man sees the pure as impure and his saviours as enemies.

Warriors of the Spirit loathe matter. They are indeed destroyers, but destroyers of the impure.

Who exactly are these “Secret Chiefs”? The following article explains this in connection with the Illuminati who contracted the “unknown superiors”.[48]

Satanists believe numbers contain inherent power: great spiritual and temporal power. They literally believe that, if they attempt to launch a great and perfect plan, but do so without arranging the plan according to the correct occult power numbers, the plan could fail! In fact, when you see an event constructed according to the correct occult numbers, you may know that the event is occultic, no matter what rhetoric is filling your ears!

Members of secret societies, such as Masonic Lodges of the Grand Orient, in their highest levels use the words “unknown superiors” to describe the force that guides them and their efforts. When the Illuminati was formed on Walpurgisnacht (eve of May 1st), 1776, five men gathered in a cavern deep beneath Ingolstadt in Bavaria and made contact with what they said were “unknown superiors.” One of these five men was Dr. Adam Weishaupt. The name Adam Weishaupt is profound in the sense that his name means “first man to know the superiors.” Here let it be noted that the five founders of the Illuminati used witchcraft rituals known as “The greater and lesser keys of Solomon”, which involved the “Pentacle of Invocation.” The pentacle is a three-dimensional, five-pointed star, and the number five became sacred to the Illuminati. We must also note that the Rothschild family consisted of five sons of one Moses Amschel Bauer, who took the name Rothschild, because it means “Red Shield.” Much later, a man named John D. Rockefeller also had five sons to control the American branch of Illuminism. The Illuminati and all of witchcraft is obsessed with the Pentacle of Invocation, and is it any wonder that the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. is exactly 555 feet high? Is it any wonder that we have a five-sided death house, known as the Pentagon?

Could John D. Rockefeller be a direct descendant of John Dee, the premier royal court magician and alchemist of the Renaissance? Who knows, but what we do know is that the Fimbulvetr has arrived.

Conclusion Forthcoming…

Welcome to the Unveiling (Part 2)

As it turns out, the Bible has many indictments against the cabal of global elite movers and shakers of the global reset:

28 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!

Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:

And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.

In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,

And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

In Isaiah 29:15-17, we read the following verses:

15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

Further onward we read more indictments.

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.” – Ezekiel 22:55.

And the Lord said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.

11 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. – Jeremiah 11:9-11

12 “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. 

13 Make the LORD of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. 

14 He will keep you safe. But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that makes people stumble, a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare. – Isaiah 8:12-14

Revelation 18:23 tells us that the “kings of the earth” are involved in dark sorcery.

“And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

This is the essence of the complete inversion of all universal truths in view of the coming “great reset”. The world flips on its axis and transforms itself when the world faces the Sun in a different direction—where chaos is transformed into order when its hit by the Primeval Light when these two elements of reality interact with one another.

In late May, a few days after Barrack Obama made his graduation speech on television—inviting the world to “join us” in the coming reset—the United States found itself at the center of a trigger event viz. the ritual sacrifice of George Floyd (see his double-headed phoenix tattoo) that sparked a fury of protests and riots with communist brown-shirt gangs like BLM and Antifa. Roughly at the same time, there was also been a slew of videos of people recording demonic sky quake howls.[1] Surely, there must be a connection. In synchronistic fashion, according to Wikipedia, the name George refers to the theophoric name which comes from “Zeus Georgos,”—an early title of the Greek god Zeus.[2] Floyd refers to the Irish surname which also means “flood”.[3] In other words, the Anti-Christ will come in like a flood. This is essentially a widespread anarcho-ritual sacrifice leading up to a second Civil War. This is all being fed into something called the “Black Awakening.” The mass “bending of the knee” of police officers and the military reminds us of what Tracy Twyman revealed in F.A.K.E. News: Unboxing the Compass.[4]

Returning again to Anthropogenesis, Blavatsky quotes Herodotus saying that those of “Atlantes” were known to ‘daily cursed the sun at his rising and at his setting because his excessive heat scorched and tormented them.’ She then quotes her own (presumably channeled) commentaries, stating:

‘They (the sixth sub-race of the Atlanteans) used magic incantations even against the Sun’—failing in which, they cursed it. The sorcerers of Thessaly were credited with the power of calling down the moon, as Greek history assures us.

This fits right in with the subject matter of Genuflect, as well as the depictions of Baphomet discovered and reproduced by Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall in Mysterium Baphometis Revelatum, which he believed to be actual Templar artifacts. On those, we see “Mete,” a hermaphroditic (and thus more accurate to the original) version of the Persian-Roman goddess Cybele, pulling the Sun and the Moon (shown inverted) down from the sky. Or, at least, that’s been my interpretation of it for some time. Considering the fact that the Sun and Moon are shown upside-down while Mete is standing upright, and the cuffs of the shackles connected to them are not directly connected to her legs, there could be more to it.

After all, this image in particular seems to have been what inspired Eliphas Levi to draw Baphomet in the way that he did. In color versions of this plate, we see the demon’s right hand forming the mano pantea with his first three fingers (a sign of benediction), pointing them upward at a golden crescent that appears floating above it, screen left. Meanwhile, the left hand, forming the same gesture but pointed downward (making it, thus, a sign of malediction, or cursing) is aimed at a darker, reddish-brown crescent located below it, screen right (the same color the Moon takes when there’s a lunar eclipse).

Levi’s own writings explain the attitude in which he depicts Baphomet in his book Dogma and Ritual of High Magic as “his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah.” Thus, these two crescents are usually explained by occult writers as being “the waxing and waning Moon.”

However, consider the fact that in the color version of the picture, one of the crescents resembles exactly what the Sun looks like during the solar eclipse, and the other one has the same color as an eclipsed Moon. It seems to me that this picture is telling us something about the nature of these celestial events. Also, it seems that the symbolism is connected to the original “Templar” depiction of Mete found by Hammer-Purgstall. The Sun and Moon both being eclipsed simultaneously is equivalent in symbolism to them being pulled down and/or overturned, as we see in the Mete image. Worthy of note here is the fact that other idols of Mete reproduced by Hammer-Purgstall are covered with depictions of the patterns of multiple crescents of sunlight that appear on the ground and other things during a total solar eclipse (called “shadow bands”).

Then think about exactly what Herodotus said about the people of “Atlantes,” whom Blavatsky equates with the Atlanteans. He said that they tried and failed to control the Sun. This is perhaps what Baphomet is trying to do with his upward-pointing hand raised towards it in a spell-casting gesture). But they were successful in bringing down the Moon (which is perhaps what Baphomet is doing with his downward-pointing hand).

This same symbolism is also reflected—perhaps not coincidentally—the path of the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 when drawn on a US map.  I produced a video about Hurricane Irma and the Germanic legend of Irminsul, the pillar that holds up the sky in that mythology. In it, I explained symbolism I saw in the eclipse in regards to the present and future status of the United States of America.

It involves the same symbolism as the civil war: cutting the country in half, dividing the South from the North, and pitting the black against the white (symbolically, light versus darkness). I also mentioned that both the hurricane and the eclipse had the metaphorical effect of “cutting off Florida.” (I did not mention Manly P. Hall’s theory that Florida is the “Isle of Saturn” that Plutarch wrote about, implicitly connecting the Americas to the legend of Atlantis.)

I will now suggest to you potential aspects of these symbolic connections that you might not have considered. To me, the eclipse represented the same gesture that takes place at the culmination of the rooftop sex ritual in Genuflect when the character representing the old Sun is forced to bow down to the new Sun. I see this encoded in several aspects, including the slanted path of the eclipse itself when plotted on a US map, which brings to my mind a figure on bended knee. I see the United States half-genuflecting (on one knee only) to something that has dominated it. This is the position that Shu, the Egyptian equivalent to Atlas, takes when holding up the sky. This is directly relevant to America’s probable role as both the old and “New” Atlantis. Basically, the idea is that just as Atlas purportedly upholds the heavens, Atlantis, as a fallen realm, is now holding up a realm built on top of it. Blavatsky makes some interesting points that seem relevant here, citing the work of nineteenth-century Irish scholar Sir Theodore Martin. She writes:

Atlas is said to have been compelled to leave the surface of the earth, and join his brother Iapetos in the depths of Tartarus. Sir Theodore Martin is right in interpreting this allegory as meaning, Atlas ‘standing on the solid floor of the inferior hemisphere of the universe and thus carrying at the same time the disc of the earth and the celestial vault — the solid envelope of the superior hemisphere’ . . . (Memoires de l‘Academie des Inscriptions, p. 176). For Atlas is Atlantis which supports the new continents and their horizons on its ‘shoulders.’

Perhaps, then, you can imagine what went through my mind when, for the second year in a row, the Masonically-significant date of September 23 was marked with public reenactments of the mourning ritual that Masons do for their imaginary hero Hiram Abiff (a stand-in for the demons who are said to have built it). I am of course referring to the kneeling protests that started the football seasons both this year and last, but appear to have much more momentum this year.

September 23 is the date on which Freemasons observe the Autumnal Equinox, marked as the date on the screen-right pillar on their Royal Arch tracing boards, and the Vernal Equinox marked off on the screen-left pillar, with the keystone joining them at the top of the arch (or sometimes shown removed to let in the rays of the Hyperuranian Sun). It’s also the date that the ladder of seven steps leads to, according to The Secret Societies of All Ages & Countries—Volume 2, by Charles William Heckethorn. But there’s much more, for September 23 is also the date on which Freemasons observe the martyrdom of Hiram. The Masonic ritual revealing the mysteries of Hiram involves half-genuflection to his body, lying dead in a shallow grave.

Just in time for Sol Invictus Day, we have the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, exactly on the Winter Solstice, December 21st. From our vantage point, this alignment will create a radiant point of light referred to as the “Star of Bethlehem”. This is significant because I explained about Jupiter’s connection with the Winter Solstice in The Sun Lady Unveiled, tying in the Christian historian and Theologian Sextus Julius Africanus’ Narrative of Events Happening in Persia on the Birth of Christ, which is mainly about the journey of the Magi from the East for the Annunciation. The text connects Juno with the Virgin Mary and Jupiter with Jesus Christ as the divine child. Everything is coming clearly into focus that these signs are the culmination of the Revelation 12 sign and the Dragon, Saturn/Satan, standing before the Sun Lady about to give birth to the child, Jupiter as explained in-depth in my book The Sun Lady Unveiled.

Jupiter is one of many identities associated with the child based on the Revelation 12-star sign that occurred on September 23, 2017, and Saturn is the one known to devour children. Melchizedek is another Jewish representation of Jupiter/Zeus as well. What all this represents ultimately is a turf war between Christ and Satan as represented by Michael casting out the Great Dragon to the Earth. This is similar to the themes expressed in Hesiod’s Theogony, which not only explains the origins of the cosmos in a Greek mythological lens but also the Titanomachy, or War of the Titans, which is about the Olympian gods casting down the Titans of Atlantis, who are punished by being consigned to Tartarus. Atlas himself is forced to hold the heavens, as well, for his punishment.

In my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, I mentioned the “bifurcation of the timelines.” I think this alludes to the idea of the Christian “rapture” or what many in New Age circles call “ascension.” Perhaps this eclipse will, in turn split reality. In many instances on my blog, I have made many references to Saturn. And I suspect because of Saturn’s return, many things that were “things of the past” will eventually be “things of the future” since appear to be entrapped in a cyclical, eternal time loop symbolized by the Ouroboros. In my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, I go into the apparent origins of the Antichrist and point out that when he desecrates the temple of God, he in fact (albeit temporarily) becomes the ruler and Cosmocrator of the world. Connect this with the rise of the Saturn cult, the result of this move is hard to fathom but it is also the height or culmination of Saturn’s empire over the universe. In the end, however, he too, like so many titans before him are consigned to Tartarus.

Returning to the Throne of God, we already saw that this is the axis mundi or tree that supports all existence, as Revelation reveals. Elsewhere in scripture, we find the idea of an Antichrist figure bring about an “abomination of desolation.” The prophet Daniel speaks of desecrated temples and desolate temples (11: 31; 9:17), as destroyed temples (9:26) by the Antichrist, through his abomination of desolation.

“Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and fortress, and shall take away the continual burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate.” Daniel 11:31 (RSV-CE).

Jesus also acknowledges Daniel’s prophecy, in His famous dissertation on “the signs of His [second] coming and of the end of the world” in Matthew chapter 24, he says: “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place”— the Jewish temple in Jerusalem—“whoever reads [the book of Daniel], let them understand” (Matthew 24:15). Let us also remember the words of 2 Thessalonians 4-9 (NRSV) about the man of lawlessness (which sounds like Belial’s epithet):

4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, declaring himself to be God. 5 Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still with you? 6 And you know what is now restraining him, so that he may be revealed when his time comes. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but only until the one who now restrains it is removed. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will destroy with the breath of his mouth, annihilating him by the manifestation of his coming.

Interestingly, there are connections between the Antichrist and Jesus’s judgments in the Gospels. Jesus warned the unrepentant cities of Chorazin and Bethsaida, the inhabitants of whom witnessed first-hand His miracles but did not believe in Him, that the judgment on those Jewish cities would be greater than that of the wicked pagan cities of Tyre and Sidon (Matthew 11:20-22; Luke 10:13).

In occultism, some have theorized that the atomic bomb Los Alamos Trinity site is the new Chorazin, which is the black city from which the Antichrist will be born (or has been born or summoned through operations of Satanists like Jack Parsons) and also connects the Thelemic Devil, Choronzon with Chorazin. Choronzon also has many similarities with Samael and Ialdabaoth of Gnosticism and John Dee’s channeling. John Dee himself viewed the Book of Revelation as a ritual magic text and the perfect channel to usher in the Apocalypse.

Recently, there have been mysterious sightings of monoliths resembling the one shown in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

As mentioned in my previous post, there are two cubes that exist as the Heavenly Jerusalem and the Saturnian cube that arises out of the infernal City of Nod. When the cubes meet the world we know will be destroyed except for those inside the white cube of the New Jerusalem, the shining city that lands on earth after all of the turmoil and suffering after the events of the apocalypse have passed.  

The black /cube prism somehow (alchemically) changes the nature of light, it circles around Saturn and comes back to the moon to do another loop. This is what I believe the black monolith of 2001: A Space Odyssey, represents and perhaps can be connected to the stones of acquittal per Revelation and Zechariah. The monolith could also be a black inversion of the holy stones and instead, a cursed object in which Kronos or Saturn or whatever demiurgical power guides creation on the course of evolution to eventually merge with it. Tracy Twyman in Killing God to Become God[5]tells us more about the significance of the Monolith.

Before the “Spiders from Mars,” Bowie had earlier confessed his true status with his second album, 1969’s Space Oddity, which he released just days prior to the Apollo 11 Moon landing. He said it was based on the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Now here he was dropping a major clue, because in actuality, 2001: A Space Odyssey was based on him, David Bowie. The character’s name in the film is “David Bowman.” It is based on Crowley’s ritual of the “Equinox of the Gods,” which is about the destruction of the Universe, killing the Creator, and crowning a new God.

The director for 2001, Stanley Kubrick, is suspected by many of having been the filmmaker of the allegedly fake Moon landing movies. His last film, Eyes Wide Shut, was about secret elite sex parties. The co-author of the script was Arthur C. Clarke, an accused pedophile with ties to all sorts of elites, such as Rupert Murdoch. He was about to be knighted by Prince Charles when news broke of his crimes, sparking protests in Sri Lanka, where he was living. (Rupert Murdoch spiked the story.)

The theme for the film is Also Sprach Zarathustra, a song in reference to the Nietzsche book Thus Spake Zarathustra, also about killing God, bringing forth a deified race of men to rule instead.

The “Equinox” ritual that I believe 2001 is based on is supposed to be performed during the Vernal Equinox. However, it is a more cosmic equinox that is commemorated here. It is when all the planetary gods “align” and are made “equal,” thus cancelling each other out and destroying existence.

This planetary alignment is shown at the end of the film 2001, in the sequence called “Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite.”

The ritual clearly describes what is supposed to happen when this occurs. The characters in the ritual all represent planetary deities. “Saturn” kills an entity identified as “Osiris/Jesus,” and then declares an end to Mankind, God, and the physical universe:

♄: The Voice of the Lord upon the Waters: the Terror of God upon Mankind. The voice of the Lord maketh the Skies to tremble: the Stars are troubled: the Aires fall. Cursed, cursed be the Earth, for her iniquity is great. Oh Lord! Let Thy Mercy be lost in the great Deep! Open thine eyes of Flame and Light, O God, upon the wicked! Lighten thine Eyes! The Clamour of Thy Voice, let it smite down the Mountains! Let us not see it! Cover we our eyes, lest we see the End of Man. Close we our ears, lest we hear the cry of Woman. Let none speak of it: let none write it!29 No!
d : No!
c : No!
♄ : All is changed!
d : All is confounded!
c : Naught is ordered!
♄ : The white is stained with blood!
d : The black is kissed of the Christ!
c : Return!
♄ : Return!30 Tremble ye, O Pillars of the Universe, for Eternity is in travail of a Terrible Child; she shall bring forth an universe of Darkness, whence shall leap forth a spark that shall put his father to flight.
d : The Obelisks are broken!
c : The stars have rushed together!
d : The Light hath plunged into the Abyss:
c : The Heavens are mixed with Hell!
♄ : My Father shall not hear their Noise: His ears are closed: His eyes are covered with the clouds of Night.
d : The End!
c : The End!
♄ : The End! For the Eye of Shiva He hath opened: the Universe is naked before Him: for the Aeon of Saturn leaneth toward the Bosom of Death!31
♂: It is a new chaos that thou findest here: chaos for thee: for us it is the skeleton of a New Truth!32 I have opened mine eye, and the universe is dissolved before me, for force is mine upper eye-lid and matter is my lower eye-lid. I gaze into the seven spaces, and there is naught.

Note that a statue of this Hindu god of “creation and destruction,” Shiva, who is said to destroy the universe when he opens his eye, stands in front of the particle accelerator at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, which many people have accused of being a plot to “open a portal to Hell.” They are, admittedly, trying to create “mini-universes,” having already allegedly discovered the “God particle.”

In the film 2001, there is a mysterious “monolith” found on the Moon, which is discovered to be emitting a signal directly to another Monolith that is floating around Jupiter, next to its moon Europa. Originally, Arthur C. Clarke wanted this planet to be Saturn. It was Kubrick’s choice to make it Jupiter, and I believe there are symbolic reasons for that. However, Clarke ended up rushing out a book version of the story which came out before the film, largely because he felt the original choice of Saturn was important.

If you think about it, showing two objects sharing radio signals between Saturn and the Moon is a perfect way to depict what a lot of people think is actually going on in our experience of the universe. As I mentioned in my article Prince, David Bowie, David Icke, Philip K. Dick, and the Saturn SimulationDavid Icke and others think we are living in an illusion generated by radio waves from Saturn, and amplified by the Moon.

In 2001, after the planets are shown aligning, with the monolith included, David Bowman presumably enters “the infinite,” as the sequence title suggests. We see his eye, and we see his point of view. It seems like he is departiclized, “torn apart” (like Ziggy Stardust and Zagreus/Dionysus), with special effects suggesting this. This matches up with the practices of numerous cults in which higher adepts are instructed on how to ascend through the heavenly spheres when they die (each corresponding to a planet), and after conquering each of these gods, emerge into a higher sphere of reality, or as some saw it, create a universe of their own. (This isn’t much different from Mormon doctrine on the afterlife, actually.) Clearly, this is what is being depicted here.

After being dematerialized, David Bowman is reborn as a god. We see stellar formations coalescing to form a fetus, sparked by the ejection of stellar “sperm.” An actual, human-looking baby fetus forms, but as the film closes, we see the baby right next to a blue planet, to scale, as though they are the same size, as is also shown on the movie poster for the film’s sequel, 2010 (although the planet shown there is Jupiter).

The New Age of Aquarius is not only ruled by Saturn as a disciplinary figure but also by Uranus as a rebel, as the Grand Lodge Communitas Saturni makes this connection known[6]:

The Saturn Gnosis implies that a man or a woman as microcosm is the reflected image of the macrocosm. Humans therefore possess the complete creative potentiality of the universe. This is expressed in the sentence “Every man and every woman is a star”. Now it is necessary to evolve this powerful and mighty potentiality within and to find the own true will. This is expressed in the Law of THELEMA which goes: “Do what thou wilt is the whole of the Law! There is no Law but: Do what thou wilt!” In the past ages quite a few people were able to perceive and to follow that, but there is a collective interest in the Age of Aquarius that will enable more people to translate the Law of Thelema into action.

The alternative is slavery and suppression by the dying Christian god, whose image has been maintained by the agony of his followers during the last 2000 years. The fading Age of Pisces has been ruled astrologically and/or astrosophically by the realms of Jupiter and Neptune. But this power, or in the diction of the Saturn Gnosis, this Demiurge has come to an end.

The dawning Age of Aquarius is influenced by Saturn and Uranus. Uranus as a revolutionist is the symbol for the upheaval of the dogmata and self-made laws. The Demiurge Saturn symbolises limits as well as the expansion of the human ego and its evolution. Furthermore, Saturn shows the individual path of the ego according to the Law of Thelema. The Saturn Gnosis also describes that the solar principle, the ego, is an essence of Saturn. To say it metaphorically, the essence of Saturn is the sun, and the essence of the sun is Saturn. This analogy reminds of the symbol of Yin and Yang, each including the contrary principle within. So now we have reached light and darkness, a central term of Gnosticism. The Saturn Gnosis however is about to unite and to rule the principles of dualism up to highest standards.

In Carl Jung’s Aion: Researchers Into the Phenomenology of the Self (p. 74), he specifically mentions the importance of the malefic Saturn and benefic Jupiter astronomical conjunction where they cancel each other off—signaling the universal reset.

Further, that in anno mundi 2365,11 a great conjunction of Saturn (f?) and Jupiter (U ) took place in Pisces. 12 These two great planets, he says, are also the most important for the destiny of the world, and especially for the destiny of the Jews. The conjunction took place three years before the birth of Moses. (This is of course legendary.) Abarbanel expects the coming of the Messiah when there is a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces. He was not the first to express such expectations. Four hundred years earlier we find similar pronouncements; for instance, Rabbi Abraham ben Hiyya, who died about 1136, is said to have decreed that the Messiah was to be ex- pected in 1464, at the time of the great conjunction in Pisces; and the same is reported of Solomon ben Gabirol (1 020-70).13 These astrological ideas are quite understandable when one considers that Saturn is the star of Israel, and that Jupiter means the “king” (of justice).

Chiun (Saturn) is mentioned in Amos 5 : 26 as “the star of your god.” 15 James of Sarug (d. 521) says the Israelites worshipped Saturn. The Sabaeans called him the “god of the Jews.” 16 The Sabbath is Saturday, Saturn’s Day. Albumasar 17 testifies that Saturn is the star of Israel. 18 In medieval astrology Saturn was believed to be the abode of the devil. 19 Both Saturn and Ialdabaoth, the demiurge and highest archon, have lion’s faces. Origen elicits from the diagram of Celsus that Michael, the first angel of the Creator, has “the shape of a lion.” 20 He obviously stands in the place of Ialdabaoth, who is identical with Saturn, as Origen points out. 21

Then on p. 76, we read the following:

Unlike Saturn, Jupiter is a beneficent star. In the Iranian view Jupiter signifies life, Saturn death. The conjunction of the two therefore signifies the union of extreme opposites.

What we are dealing with in texts like Revelation is also a culmination of other apocalyptic and wisdom texts, like Enoch and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Paul D in “Michael the Great Prince and Savior of Israel”[7] tells us that Michael, along with other figures in the Bible, like Melchizedek, are different manifestations of the same figure—the Prince of Light.

In Daniel 12:1, he is the Great Prince, prophesied to appear as the deliverer of Israel at the end of the present age. The War Scroll of Qumran, written about a half century after Daniel, describes Michael as the Prince of Light, a warrior angel who will defeat the devil Belial and establish his own kingdom in heaven and on earth.

This is the day appointed by Him for the defeat and overthrow of the Prince of the kingdom of wickedness, and He will send eternal succour to the company of His redeemed by the might of the princely Angel of the kingdom of Michael. …He will raise up the kingdom of Michael in the midst of the gods, and the realm of Israel in the midst of all flesh. (1QM 17.5–9) 

And the Prince of Light Thou hast appointed from ancient 10 times to come to our support; [all the sons of righteousness are in his hand], and all the spirits of truth are under his dominion. But Belial, the Angel of Malevolence, Thou hast created for the Pit; his [rule] is in Darkness and his purpose is to bring about wickedness and iniquity. (1QM 13.10)

According to my reading, most scholars agree that Michael and Melchizedek were regarded as two names of the same Prince of Light by the authors of many of the Qumran scrolls.9 Thus, when 2QMelch describes Melchizedek as an eschatological warrior who exacts God’s vengeance against Belial and then reigns as king, we can infer this deliverer also to be Michael, the same Prince of Light (Hannah, pp. 70–72).

John J. Collins, arguably the world’s most renowned scholar of apocalyptic literature, describes the notion of a transcendent savior figure as “perhaps the most significant development in Jewish messianism…in the second century B.C.E.” He notes that Persian influence is “widely and plausibly believed” as having shaped the Jewish dualistic framework of a Prince of Light, Michael, who is balanced by an Angel of Darkness, Belial (Collins 1987, p. 101).

Following the logic and the takeaway message from the author, perhaps Jesus, Michael, Metatron, and Melchizedek are all different facets or incarnations of the Logos. The physical world forces them to break into different frequencies like light through a prism or fractals.

According to demonic exorcist Russ Dizdar, the “Illuminati” have injected their minions in all levels of society, including the media, the military, the police, politics (naturally), and even the mainstream Christian church.[8] In a sense, these people are a fifth-column operation. Connect all this with what was taking place with BLM movements earlier this year with the call to remove all and any religious (that is Christian) iconography that depicts Jesus, St. Michael, Mary, St. Peter, etc. as “white” as well as harassing and assaulting Christian believers, and the razing of all Christian churches (not to mention the draconian restrictions of the gathering of the masses in Churches as well).[9]

In my mind, this all connects to what happened in 2019 with the ritual burning of Notre Dame—the same place that the book Fulcanelli’s Mystery of the Cathedrals is based on. On July 19, 2020, the Nantes cathedral was also set ablaze, as well, echoing what occurred last year in 2019.[10] Le Serpent Rouge (the Red Dragon)[11] [12]contains references to the Flood of Noah, baptism, and alchemy:

This friend, how would you know him? His name is a mystery but his number is that of a famous seal. How can one describe him? Maybe like the pilot of the everlasting Ark of Noah, impassive like a pillar on his white rock looking beyond the black rock towards the south.

Then later:

Cursing the profane in their ashes and those who follow their ways; returning from the darkness while making the gesture of horror at the abyss into which I had plunged. Here is the proof that I knew the secret of the Seal of Solomon and I had visited the secret places of this Queen. Take Heed my friend, do not add or take away one iota; think and think again, the base lead of my words may contain the purest gold.

Returning again to the white hill, the sky opens its floodgates. Close to me a presence, its feet in the water, like one who has just received the mark of baptism, I turn away again to the east, facing me I see unwinding endlessly by his coils, the enormous Red Serpent mentioned in the documents, rigid and bitter, the huge, unleashed beast at the foot of the white mountain beast becomes scarlet with anger.

I have always thought abyss = chaos and this could be equally thought of as the Flood waters (the Noah apocalypse) and the Lake of Fire (St. John the Divine’s Apocalypse). John the Baptist baptized with water and said the one who came after would baptize with the Holy Ghost and with fire. The Holy Ghost is the Gnosis, the knowledge of the primeval abyss, which can be symbolized equally as either fire or water. You must immerse yourself in it to know it, and you risk drowning or getting burnt. Returning to Fulcanelli’s Mystery of the Cathedrals[13], he writes about the “double cataclysm” in connection with the French Cyclic Cross of Hendaye’s strange inscription:

In this way we obtain the following strange announcement: I1 est kcrit que la vie se rkfugie en un seul espace (It is written that life takes refuge in a single space) and we learn that a country exists, where death cannot reach man at the terrible time of the double cataclysm. As for the geographical location of this promised land, from which the elite will take part in the return of the golden age, it is up to us to find it. For the elite, the children of Elias, will be saved according to the word of Scripture, because their profound faith, their untiring perseverance in effort, will have earned for them the right to be promoted to the rank of disciples of the Christ-Light. They will bear his sign and will receive from him the mission renewing for regenerated humanity the chain of tradition of humanity which has disappeared.

The online cartoon “I, Pet Goat 2,” also depicts a Jesus-like figure, who many have connected to the Anti-Christ. From what we have seen earlier with the quotation from the OverLords of Chaos website, combining that with the images above—the outcome of all of this should be obvious. Earlier, we’ve touched on the alchemical formula for “Solve et. Coagula” of our current universe into the new aeon. This is what the New World Order represents.

I am not the only one who is suggesting the apocalyptic idea of universal destruction and rebirth. In fact, the website Taileaters[14] tells us something similar.

The church collapsing in on itself is an incredibly symbolic image. Recently people have made connections to how the spiral on the cathedral of Notre Dame collapsed in a very similar way. There are many interpretations of what this scene truly represents. Some believe that this image depicts Jesus as the antichrist, which breaks down modern religion, society, and current ways of thinking. Others feel that this symbolizes Christ breaking free from the restraints of a corrupt church, and making way for a new world. Another widespread impression is that this signifies the end of old ideas and the ushering of a new era. 

Moving forward into the sunset, Jesus leaves all previous structure behind him. We see a meteor hit a Pyramid in the horizon, the wake from the first collapse, then takes out the remaining pyramids. This is a representation of starting fresh in the new world.

Notably, the term “Solve et. Coagula” is also mentioned by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano in his open letter to Plus Ultra member President Donald Trump.[15] Luke 21:32-26 (KJV), it tells us that a snare is sprung on the world, which is a reference to the New World Order or the “Global Reset” of the World Economic Forum.

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Ra-Hoor-Khuit

This is all connected to the Global Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution initiative. This reset is mainly about centralizing power in the One World Order as many conspiracy truthers have been warning for years under the guise of the Green New Deal.[16] In my article, “The Esoteric Meaning of Death In Vegas’s Dirt Music Video”[17] I discuss the overt occult and fascist imagery shown throughout, which also discusses KKK Grand Master and Freemason Albert Pike’s prophecy of the coming “New Æon” ruled over by Lucifer, the Crowned and Conquering Child, also known as “Ra-Hoor-Khuit.” This same entity could also be considered one and the same as the Thelemic idea of the “higher genius” also known as the “Holy Guardian Angel” of the “New Æon” as explained in “Plan 93 from Outer Space” by Peter-Robert Koenig.[18]

Crowley’s (feminine?) Hoor-paar-kraat (Set) was again understood as the HGA; in the Tetragrammaton YHVH Ra-Hoor-Khuit (Horus) corresponded with the Vav, and Hoor-paar-kraat to the Heh final. “This identifies Hoor-paar-kraat with the Aeon of Ma’at.” [20] Lam ‘sits’ in the Muladhara Chakra’s Bija-Mantra, where the Fiery Serpent (or Kundalini) waits to uncoil. The ‘optical’ union with Lam took place in Lam’s eyes, the region of the Ajna-Chakra (and also the seat of the will). [21] According to Crowley this corresponded to a sex-magical act in which one became conscious of the Ajna and Muladhara Chakras during orgasm. [22]

Contact with the HGA was defined as the stage of “reaching critical mass” after doing intensive Abramelin or Liber Samekh exercises. The HGA is the sum total of experience, gathered into this critical mass and then able to take on spontaneous form. [23]

Contact with the HGA was defined as the stage of “reaching critical mass” after doing intensive Abramelin or Liber Samekh exercises. The HGA is the sum total of experience, gathered into this critical mass and then able to take on spontaneous form. [23] This contact with the HGA — whether experienced in concrete exterior form, or as the aspirant’s spiritual Higher Self — corresponded with the start of ‘occult puberty’. [24] For an occultist, it meant that there was no longer any distinction between inner and outer. Evolution demanded that one cast off such old mental habits, [25] and that humanity should become non-human, as in Crowley’s A.·. A.·., where a kind of superman hatched from the Egg or Babe of the Abyss (that is, the concept of dissolution in occult Qabalah, the bridge between human and divine). Freed of Ego, only this new human creature can help human evolution, and perhaps even that of the universe. [‘Babe of the Abyss’; the whole point being that the Kabbalistic Abyss is the ultimate womb from which the soul is born before progressing to the Supernal Triad of sefiroth (Kether, Chokmah, and Binah) on the Tree of Life. After being born from the Abyss, it first reaches Binah, the ‘Magna Mater’.]

In an article connecting Aleister Crowley, the perpetual flap of UFO’s and Enochian magick called “100 years Ago—Did Crowley Usher in the Modern UFO Wave With An Interdimensional Portal?” by Andrew Arnett[19], he writes how Kenneth Grant would briefly take over the Ordo Templi Orientis and create a magical ritual invoking Lam by using its egg-shaped portrait as a gateway. Arnett refers to this archived Bibliotecapleyades article, where Arnett does not automatically reveal the true intent of such rituals but the later does, stating that the ritual is aimed at creating an astral egg-shaped “bubble”—much like an alchemical ark—to travel to parallel dimensions.[20]

Discussions of Eggs and “safe spaces” reminds me of the cocooned Matrix-like future of technology that is quickly engulfing all around us.[21] In William Bramley’s The Gods of Eden (p. 193), the author connects UFO’s with pandemics (see the quote below). The TV Show Ancient Aliens even did an episode about it, connecting comets and asteroids with omens involving mass pandemics like the Black Death.[22]

… UFOs (i.e. the Custodial society) have bombarded the human race with deadly diseases. This evidence is particularly intriguing when we consider claims made by a number of modern UFO contactees who say that they are relaying messages to mankind from the UFO society. Some of them claim that UFOs are here to help mankind and that UFOs will eradicate disease on Earth. The UFO civilization reportedly has no disease. If the Custodial civilization is indeed so healthy, perhaps it is only because it is not bombarding itself with germ weapons. If UFOs truly intended to bring health to the human race, maybe all they needed to do was to stop spraying infectious biological agents into the air.

Recently, there has been talk of the existence of aliens or a “galactic federation” from Israeli officials, as well.[23]

The white dove symbolizes the consecrated magical sperm or ejaculate inside the Vesica Pisces symbolizing the vagina and the womb—giving birth to the New Aeon, underneath the Eye of Lucifer.

The OTO Ordo Templi Orientis was the first of the great Old Æon orders to accept The Book of the Law, received by Aleister Crowley in 1904. This book proclaims a New Æon in human thought, culture, and religion. The Æon arises from a single supreme injunction: The Law of Thelema. Speaking of Babylon, Jack Parsons, the Antichrist black magician and Thelemite, also invoked Babalon, the Harlot dark goddess along with Frater H also known as L. Ron Hubbard, as Michael Staley writes in The Babalon Working.[24]

As mentioned earlier, Parsons still considered himself a member of the A.·. A.·. In December 1948 he took the Oath of a Magister Templi, and the name Belarion, Antichrist. This oath was taken in the presence of Wilfred T. Smith, with whom he had evidently retained some sort of relationship. In 1949 he issued The Book of the Antichrist. This is a short text, and in it he relates how he was stripped of everything that he had and was, and then rededicated to Babalon. This was, he considered, a recharging of the current generated by the Babalon Working. He also pledged that the work of The Beast 666 would be fulfilled, and he seems to have seen that work as being, at least in part, a subversion of Christian ethics. He further prophesied that within seven years Babalon would manifest, so bringing his work to fruition.

Crater named in honor of Jack Parsons on the far side of the moon.

In the essay, “Dr. John Dee, the Necronomicon & the Cleansing of the World – A Gnostic Trail”[25] by Colin Low, he also tells us more about this coming “New Æon”. In the book Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left Hand Path Sex Magic by Nikolas Schreck and Zeena Schreck[26] tells us how both the Beast of Revelation and the Whore/Harlot of Babylon are both derivatives of Ishtar/Inanna/Astarte/Asherah or even Ishtar’s evil sister Ereshkigal. Astaroth is usually the one depicted as female, although he is universally male in the grimoire tradition. Modern occultists usually depict him as female because the name originates from the Sumerian Innana/Astarte/Ishtar. Greenfield also makes the connection between the UFO alien group Ashtar Command with Astaroth, the fallen angel found in Solomonic grimoires, as well. The symbol of Asraoth, being the eight-pointed star, is also the chief symbol for chaos magic as well.

For Thelemites, one of the primary symbols of Babalon is a vivid scarlet rose, its color suggesting the “blood of the saints” that fills the Cup of 275 Fornications held aloft by the Whore of Babylon in Revelations. This vaginal rose is equated by Crowley with the symbol of the Rosy Cross so central to Rosicrucianism. (The crimson rose of Babalon also recalls the importance of the yoni-like scarlet hibiscus flower in the secret rite of the Vama Marga.) For Crowley, the saints whose blood had seeped into the flower were not the Christian martyrs. They were the Masters of the Temple, like himself, who had supposedly crossed the abyss by pouring every last drop of their Selves into the Universal Oneness, symbolized as blood/semen ejaculated into the Whore’s vulva.

Considering the importance of Beast and Babalon to his religion, it is curious that Crowley barely looked into the origins of these mythic beings. If he had, he would have learned that just as the Whore was lnanna/Ishtar/Astarte, the Beast 666 was also originally a feminine deity, the she-dragon Leviathan, derived from pre-Christian Sumerian lore concerning Tiamat, atavistic goddess of the deep. This ancient understanding of the Beast as a female force negates Crowley’s self-definition of the Beast 666 as the quintessence of solar-phallic power, but then mythological scholarship was never the poetic romantic Crowley’s strong suit. His do-it-yourself mythology inexplicably presented Babalon as an aspect of the Egyptian goddess of the night sky, Nuit, suggesting in The Book Of The Law that Babalon is Nuit’s “secret name.” Babalon, as a being of sheer lust, was also interpreted by Crowley as the feminine counterpart of Pan, the lascivious goat-god of ancient Greece.

In the book The Secret Rituals of the Men in Black (p. 33), Allen H. Greenfield writes about these higher degree occult rituals in their usage of summoning “ultraterrestrials” as discussed by authors like John Keel.

THE rituals of the orthodox Western ceremonial magick tradition conceal the technology for contacting Ultraterrestrials across barriers of time, space and ‘dimensionality’, but also for breaking such contact should this prove necessary, or for containing any force or being brought forth in this manner.

The immediate past source for such rituals are the medieval magical texts termed “grimoires” or “grammars” that is, basic instructional texts—but their sources are much older. A clue to the origin of such texts can be found, for example, in the introductory narrative of the Clavicula Salomonis, or Key of King Solomon. In the 1888 translation by S.L. Mathers, we are told by ‘Solomon’ the purported author, “I suddenly beheld, at the end of a thickly-shaded vista of trees, a Light in the form of a blazing Star, which said unto me with a voice of thunder: Solomon, Solomon, be not dismayed; the Lord is willing to satisfy thy desire by giving thee knowledge of whatsoever thing is most pleasant to thee.”

What follows Solomon’s request for wisdom are various techniques for conjuring Celestial Powers and Beings, of controlling their energies and of sending them back to their places of origin. These beings are named and described in detail, as are the planets and spheres of their origin. While the antiquity of some of this material is unknown, some of it shows a knowledge of ancient Gnostic Wisdom Literature unavailable in medieval Europe, suggesting a very ancient origin.

One ritual that invokes the Power of Contact that comes from the Stars is certainly of very ancient origin. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn polished the ritual as “The Bornless Ritual for the Invocation of the Higher Genius” in the late 19th Century, but a cruder version had been published in 1852 under the unappetizing title “Fragment of a Greco-Egyptian Work Upon Magic” and later reprinted by the great Egyptologist E. A. Wallis Budge in his turn-of-the-century book Egyptian Magic.

Allen T. Greenfield in the same book, (p. 30) tells us humanity’s relationship with its ultraterrestrial overlords aka the Archons.

These entities, and those of their kind, humans become More Than Human seem somehow to ‘keep things in balance’ through the ages of wars in the heavens and infiltration by Ultraterrestrials who, though far beyond humanity in knowledge and power seem somehow afraid of us. Whatever they fear in us seems to be our only salvation.

Perhaps the early Gnostics had it right in turning the Genesis story on its head. In the Gnostic Version, as in the ancient Hypostasis of the Archons (“the reality of the rulers”) we find that the Serpent of Wisdom is the defender of humanity (in Hebrew Cipher “serpent” and “messiah” have the same numerical value), offering us the Tree of Wisdom and the Tree of Immortality, in opposition to The Authorities, or Celestial Rulers, who wish to keep us in ignorance and in the shadow of death. The Serpent or Dragon is a close relative (mythically speaking) to our presumed benefactor, the Oannes, Prometheus, Odin and the other celestial Titans who, at great cost to themselves, steal for us the fire of heaven. But, as the Yada di’ Shi’ite, Aiwass, G.I. Gurdjieff, Phil Dick or Frederich Nietsche would tell us, we are our own salvation or damnation. This is the last thing government bureaucrats, Knights of Malta or goose-stepping Silver Shirts and fundamentalists would have you realize: You are not helpless. Resistance is not futile. Within humanity is some Seed of Greatness that even the very gods tremble at. If there is any ‘message’ in this book, it is that we are, potentially, a very powerful race of beings. This is, ultimately, a message of hope.

In Operation Trojan Horse by John Keel (p. 192-193), he writes more about these “Ultraterrestials” or the “Cryptoterrestrials”[27]:

Did ancient man misinterpret UFO manifestations by placing them in a religious context? Apparently not. The literature indicates that the phenomenon carefully cultivated the religious frame of reference in early times, just as the modem manifestations have carefully supported the extraterrestrial frame of reference. Operation Trojan Horse is merely the same Qld game in a new, updated guise. The Devil’s emissaries of yesteryear have been replaced by the mysterious “men in black.” The quasi-angels of Biblical times have become magnificent spacemen. The demons, devils and false angels were recognized as liars and plunderers by early man. These same impostors now appear as long-haired Venusians. All of the major religions, and most of the minor ones, accept the God-Devil conflict, and their scriptures outline some possibly real episodes in which human beings have had some direct experience with this conflict. A large portion of all holy literature consists of material purportedly dictated to men by supernatural beings, and a good part of this seems more allegorical or metaphorical than real. The phenomenon may have passed along information about man’s origin and purpose carefully disguised in terms and fictitious episodes that could be understood by the minds of the people during the period when the messages were transmitted. Thus, the story of Adam and Eve might not be the actual truth but merely a great simplification of the truth.

In the Forgotten Books of Eden, an apocryphal book allegedly translated from ancient Egyptian in the nineteenth century, we are told that Satan and his hosts were fallen angels who populated the earth before Adam was brought into being, and Satan used lights, fire and water in his efforts to rid the planet of this troublesome creature. He even disguised himself as an angel from time to time and appeared as a beautiful young woman in his efforts to lead Adam to his doom. UFO-type lights were one of the Devil’s devices described in the Forgotten Books of Eden. Subtle variations on this same theme can be found in the Bible and in the numerous scriptures of the Oriental cultures. Religious man has always been so enthralled with the main (and probably allegorical) story line that the hidden point has been missed. That point is that the earth was occupied before man arrived or was created. The original occupants or forces were paraphysical and possessed the power of transmogrification. Man was the interloper, and the earth’s original occupants or owners were not very happy over the intrusion. The inevitable conflict arose between physical man and the paraphysical owners of the planet. Man accepted the interpretation that this conflict raged between his creator and the Devil. The religious viewpoint has always been that the Devil has been attacking man (trying to get rid of him) by foisting disasters, wars and sundry evils upon him.

Speaking of the Nephilim, there is also a true story of a Native American tribe called the Paiutes who burned alive a host of red-headed giant Nephilim![28] 1 Enoch, 19 tells us that these Ultraterrestrials manifested in a multitude of different shapes, forms, and sizes to ancient man:

1. Then Uriel said, Here the angels, who cohabited with women, appointed their leaders; 2. And being numerous in appearance made men profane, and caused them to err; so that they sacrificed to devils as to gods. For in the great day there shall be a judgment, with which they shall be judged, until they are consumed; and their wives also shall be judged, who led astray the angels of heaven that they might salute them. 3. And I, Enoch, I alone saw the likeness of the end of all things. Nor did any human being see it, as I saw it.

In “Revelation’s Hymns: Commentary on the Cosmic Conflict” by Steven Charles Grabiner[29], his description of Satan describes as the premiere rebel who rules over the sides of the north—much like what we saw in my essay, “The Sun Lady Tales.” From a flat-earth perspective, Satan would rule over the domed flat earth, just below Yahweh’s throne, beyond the dome as YouTuber Demon Hunter claims.[30]

Given the larger OT imagery that John utilizes in telling his narrative, several threads are drawn together to fill out the issues in Satan’s war against the government of God. If the above readings are correct, and the IR sees in the “ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world” (Rev. 12.9) the fuller OT background,109 Satan would not be considered a flat character but instead one who has an important role in the plot. Originally an exalted covering cherub, this being experienced a primordial fall. Formerly one of the highest of celestial beings, unrighteousness (לעו ,in the LXX it is ἀδικήµατα) mysteriously arose within him and subverted his perfection (Ezek. 28.15). This led to an inner exaltation, which was eventually manifested in a desire to place himself above God and His heavenly court (Ezek. 28.17; Isa. 14.13,14). Instead of participating as an exalted member of the council, he used his previous position as a platform to undermine God’s authority. This activity was clothed with such great deception that the issues raised demanded an unimagined response from God.

All this black magic connects to not only the rise of Antichrist but also through the alchemical transformation of the human race and perhaps even reality itself as Tracy Twyman often wrote and spoke about in her work. The “dark winter” or black awakening is nothing but a state of alchemy in which the whole of reality is destroyed and transformed–whether by quantum A.I. or by complex ritual magic workings. A Satanist website tells us more about this idea, calling the new “super” race “NuZoth.”[31]

While reading about Gravity’s Rainbow, a primary text of the UBZG GnoSYS TEMpli grade, I learned this morning that on the same day that Hiroshima was bombed, the Transfiguration of the Christ is celebrated. In the story from the Gospel of Mathew, Christ and his disciples climb a mountain and Jesus begins to glow, like a b-movie monster exposed to radiation. God bellows down from heaven that this is my son. The light that illuminated from Christ could be compared to the flash from the atomic explosion. Also transfiguration is equivalent to metamorphosis, which is an essential theme of the inner order Z:.B:. (i.e. the Z:.O:.T:.O:.). I have suggested in the past that the atomic bomb is a manifestation of the Antichrist, and also the new man (i.e. the NuZoth). The accomplishment of the new man can be achieved majkly (my new spelling of magick) through the metamorphosis of man into beast, which results in a human alien/insect hybrid. This hybrid race I believe is the equivalent of the theosophical sixth root race.

This “Nuzoth” race sounds eerily close to the scorpion and locust demons that rise from the smoky pit of Apollyon/Abaddon in Revelation 9:11, all released by the fifth angel that opens the gates of bottomless pit with a star key (Rev. 9:1). In my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled (p. 412), I wrote the following about the Greek solar god Apollo and his ability to cause pandemics:

The Greek god Apollo is inverted or transformed into an angel of the bottomless pit. Though Apollo was known as a god of prophecy, law, and purification, in his earliest accounts, he could place plagues on mankind as well as cure them. This occurs in Homer’s Iliad when Apollo creates a nine-day deadly plague on the Achaean army and their cattle. The description given to Apollyon’s army of locust demons sounds eerily like that of the legendary creature of Persia, the Manticore (the “maneater”). This predatory monster is said to be a mutated mixture of a man’s face with a lion’s face and body, along with a scorpion’s tail and bat wings.

Interestingly, the key enzyme in this mass roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine is also called “Luciferase” (also known as “Luciferin”)[32], which broken down phonetically, sounds like “Lucifer Erase” or “Lucifer’s Race” e.g., a person who has their DNA alchemically reconstituted.[33] In the book 2020: Our Common Destiny and The Anti Communitarian Manifesto by Niki Raapana and Nordica Friedrich (pg. 65)[34], the authors tell us about the role of vaccines in the coming reset:

Individualism has been redefined as a moral sickness against which we must all be vaccinated. The world is transforming into a new global architecture.

The idea of wearing masks is a premier feature in many occult and witchcraft rituals as a way of sacrificing one’s “ego” or soul into the Abyss.[35] As mentioned earlier, the Antichrist is said to be Satan’s incarnation or even son. While this figure is mentioned only a handful of times in the Bible, he is also mentioned a few times spread in between other apocryphal texts like the Greek Apocalypse of Ezra, as discussed in the book The Sun Lady Unveiled. In the apocryphal Christian text, the Gospel of Bartholomew tells us that Jesus raises Satan from hell for the disciple Bartholomew to interrogate. Bartholomew questions Satan on the circumstances surrounding his fall from Heaven. When this does happen, Beliar/Satan’s frightening appearance kills Bartholomew and the rest of the apostles, dead. However, Jesus raises them from the dead, immediately after.

10 And as he thus spake, Jesus raised him up and said unto him: Bartholomew, wilt thou see the adversary of men? I tell thee that when thou beholdest him, not thou only but the rest of

11 But they all said unto him: Lord, let us behold him.

12 And he led them down from the Mount of Olives and looked wrathfully upon the angels that keep hell (Tartarus), and beckoned unto Michael to sound the trumpet in the height of the heavens. And Michael sounded, and the earth shook, and Beliar came up, being held by 660 (560 Gr., 6,064 Lat. 1, 6,060 Lat. 2) angels and bound with fiery chains. 12 And the length of him was 1,600 cubits and his breadth 40 (Lat. 1, 300, Slav. 17) cubits (Lat. 2, his length 1,900 cubits, his breadth 700, one wing of him 80), and his face was like a lightning of fire and his eyes full of darkness (like sparks, Slav.). And out of his nostrils came a stinking smoke; and his mouth was as the gulf of a precipice, and the one of his wings was four-score cubits.

14 And straightway when the apostles saw him, they fell to the earth on their faces and became as dead.

15 But Jesus came near and raised the apostles and gave them a spirit of power, and he saith unto Bartholomew: Come near, Bartholomew, and trample with thy feet on his neck, and he will tell thee his work, what it is, and how he deceiveth men.

51 And Bartholomew raised up Satan and said unto him: Go unto thy place, with thine angels, but the Lord hath mercy upon all his world.

(50, 51, again enormously amplified in lat. 2. Satan complains that he has been tricked into telling his secrets before the time. The interpolation is to some extent dated by this sentence: ‘ Simon Magus and Zaroes and Arfaxir and Jannes and Mambres are my brothers.’ Zaroes and Arfaxatare wizards who figure in the Latin Acts of Matthew and of Simon and Jude (see below).

52 But the devil said: Suffer me, and I will tell thee how I was cast down into this place and how the Lord did make man.

53 I was going to and fro in the world, and God said unto Michael: Bring me a clod from the four corners of the earth, and water out of the four rivers of paradise. And when Michael brought them God formed Adam in the regions of the east, and shaped the clod which was shapeless, and stretched sinews and veins upon it and established it with Joints; and he worshipped him, himself for his own sake first, because he was the image of God, therefore he worshipped him.

54 And when I came from the ends of the earth Michael said: Worship thou the image of God, which he hath made according to his likeness. But I said: I am fire of fire, I was the first angel formed, and shall worship clay and matter?

55 And Michael saith to me: Worship, lest God be wroth with thee. But I said to him: God will not be wroth with me; but I will set my throne over against his throne, and I will be as he is. Then was God wroth with me and cast me down, having commanded the windows of heaven to be opened.

56 And when I was cast down, he asked also the six hundred that were under me, if they would worship: but they said: Like as we have seen the first angel do, neither will we worship him that is less than ourselves. Then were the six hundred also cast down by him with me.

57 And when we were cast down upon the earth we were senseless for forty years, and when the sun shone forth seven times brighter than fire, suddenly I awaked; and I looked about and saw the six hundred that were under me senseless.

58 And I awaked my son Salpsan and took him to counsel how I might deceive the man on whose account I was cast out of the heavens.

And so, Satan spills the beans and reveals his demonic son has a name—Salpsan. This name is only found in this text and nowhere else. The term “Beliar” is also mentioned in the text as another name for Satan and even the Antichrist in other texts like the Ascension of Isaiah, as discussed in The Sun Lady Unveiled. The War Scroll also lists Belial as a chief demonic enemy of St. Michael the archangel who eventually defeats and humiliates him for the entire of the Heavenly host to witness, just like we see in Revelation 12 where Belial transforms himself into a multi-headed dragon to eat the Sun Lady and her royal child but in the last moment is defeated as well. In Gnostic texts like the Pistis Sophia, Sophia is called the “Virgin of Light” which sounds a lot like our Sun Lady. She is also guarded by Sabaoth “the Good” which is also associated with Jesus and St. Michael, as we will see in a moment. The Disk of the World Gnostic Glossary site tells us more about this Virgin of Light.[36]

The Virgin of Light is likened to the Persian divinity Anahita, mistress of the waters that flow from a heavenly source in the region of the stars. The Virgin of Light purifies the souls through baptism, seals the perfect souls, then returns them to the Treasury of the Light in the region of the stars. The sad story of the fall of the Virgin of Light from her exalted position in the celestial realms above is mirrored in the events of humanity below.

“Guard your camp and weapons and spears. Arm yourself and all the soldiers which are the words, and the commanders which are the counsels, and your mind as a guiding principle.” (The Teachings of Silvanus, Gnostic papyri)

The Virgin of Light weighs the merits of the soul and dispenses justice according to the soul’s spiritual accomplishments, like the Egyptian god Thoth, who placed the human heart on a scale and weighed it against the weight of a feather.

“Truth is the mother, knowledge the father. Those who think that sinning does not apply to them are called ‘free’ by the world.” (The Gospel of Philip, Gnostic papyri)

When Justice finds the souls wanting in spiritual attainment, she sends them into the rotation of the spheres of down through the body of Draco, whose tail descends into the abyss. Draco is formed by the long and winding procession of the souls on the way to the abyss.

The Virgin of Light, as Justice, passes those perfect souls who are to ascend to the upper realms to the Treasure of the Light. Judging them worthy, she releases them from the birth/rebirth cycle, the dance of death, by sealing them against the powers of the spheres.

The Virgin of Light becomes filled with a longing to reunite herself with the Treasury of the Light and the supernal entities of the higher celestial realms. She envies those souls whom she sends upwards to merge with the Light. Her strong emotions of envy and desire weigh her down. She falls from her exalted position as the portal to the upper realms down into the lower heavens to dwell in the 8th sphere, the Ogdoad. When she falls, she becomes Sophia, the “Portal of Life,” the door of birth into the Physical world.

“Then Justice created Paradise, being beautiful and being outside the orbit of the moon and the orbit of the sun in the Land of Wantonness, in the East in the midst of the stones.” (On the Origin of the World, Gnostic papyri)

“Sophia fashioned great luminous bodies and all the stars.” (On the Origin of the World, Gnostic papyri)

In Book of Pistis-Sophia, Jesus relates that in his celestial journeys he found Sophia in the 13th Aeon, the Ogdoad, grieving because she had not been reinstated to her former position. He comforts her and tells her that her repentance has been heard on high, and Lord Sabaoth has sent him to lift her out of the Chaos of the lower realms. In another text, she is reinstated to her former position in the lower limit of the 13th Aeon. Another account of Sophia relates she is happily vouchsafed a savior, a spiritual spouse, to join her in her reign as the “Portal of Life” to the material world.

In another article by Dylan Burns, “Cosmic Eschatology and Christian Platonism in the Sethian Gnostic Apocalypses Marsanes, Zostrianos, and Allogenes” he discusses the Sethian literature as mentioned in the article, arguing that their messages of God’s Kingdom or even a “new heaven, and a new earth” as Jesus Christ often spoke of, is at hand. What is striking is Burns’s quotation of John Turner’s translation of one quote from Zostrainos: “And [again he said, Sophia became] perfect through [the will of] [the commander] through whom [the atmospheric] [realm perseveres], having [immutably averted] the destruction of the world.” In other words, Sophia repents to the Pleroma so that the created world is saved from destruction.

Although this was hinted at in my book, The Sun Lady Unveiled, I will elaborate further on this subject. A few of the Gnostic scriptures take a conciliatory approach to the God of Israel: He is the archon Sabaoth or Adonaios who accepted Sophia’s spirit and rebelled against the forces of Ialdabaoth. Basically, the YHWH we get in the Old Testament can be divided in multiple powers, as done so by the Sethians and the Ophites–revealed in texts like the Apocryphon of John and in Irenaeus’s chief writing against the Gnostics—Against Heresies, and even Origen’s Against Celsus. Both writings list these different “god-forms” or archontic powers like Yaldabaoth, Iao, Sabaoth, Asaphaios, Adonaois, Elaios, and Horaios. In a way, YHWH is an amalgam of different sources—some archonic, and some angel—thus, pointing to the True God. In the Chaldean Oracles of Zoroaster[37], Sabaoth is also mentioned in passing as a quotation:

 The Chaldæans call the God Dionysos (or Bacchus), Iao in the Phoenician tongue (instead of the Intelligible Light), and he is also called Sabaoth, [1] signifying that he is above the Seven poles, that is the Demiurgos. – Lydus, De Mensibus, 83. T.

St. Michael may also be invoked for spiritual warfare as even Catholic and Orthodox churches use the angel to invoke him against the powers of darkness. In Mysterium Baphometis Revelatum by Joseph Von Hammer Purgstall, he writes about St. Michael:

On the left side is exhibited the end of a Templar’s life, already dead and lying on the ground, with the Archangel Michael holding a judgment scale and weighing his deeds. The scale, on which were placed apples, desserts and other blandishments of the senses, and by which the Ophitic Templar’s life is represented, descending to the Earth, shows that the judgment of Michael favors him, because in order to hinder Jaldabaoth, he tries to depress the other, ascending, part of the scale. This allegory of the scale of judgment about which we discoursed more fully in our commentary (page 288, Volume 5) corresponds very well to the total doctrine of the Gnostics, since, as we have seen above, the serpent, called by the Gnostics Michael, carries out the details of judgment in this way: Thinking, in the day of judgment, about the life of the Templar, or Gnostic, he accepts all of his disgraceful deeds as good works. In this way [goes] the cycle of a Gnostic’s life, whom we see being educated towards Gnosis, that is the doctrine of “genital wisdom,” from the earliest years of infancy. Thenceforth, we see him hounded by Jaldabaoth. He is, with the death of the same and the final judgment, terminated, and this double series of bas-reliefs, declares the double history of a Gnostic and of Gnosis, or of a Templar and of the entire order.

Michael, along with Sabaoth, are both associated with judgement. Matthew 26:52-54 says about Jesus’s position as a god of judgment as well:

52 “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. 53 Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?”

A Roman legion was 1,000-1,500 men. Here is what one angel can do!

2 Kings 19:35: 35 That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies!

According to one Orthodox website, it was Michael who took out the army.[38] In a rare, little known text known as the Apocalypse of Zerubbabel from the seventh century C.E. (also known as the Sefer Zerubbabel), it details Zerubbabel (which sounds a lot like the Tower of Babel as “Zeru” also means sky but the name also means “stranger in Babylon”) and his heavenly ascent visions similar to what we see with St. John of Patmos and his apocalyptic visions of the Beast/Antichrist who is named “Armilus” in the text. Zerubbabel also has a fascinating exchange with St. Michael who is also equated with Metatron in the same text.[39]

Suddenly he appeared like a strong young man, handsome and adorned.

I asked him: ‘When will the light of Israel come?’ And as I was speaking to him, behold, a man with two wings approached me and said to me, ‘Zerubbabel!  What are you asking the Messiah of the Lord?’ I answered him and said, ‘I asked when the appointed time for deliverance is supposed to come.’ ‘Ask me,’ he replied, ‘and I will tell you.’ I said to him, ‘Sir, who are you?’ He answered and said, ‘I am Michael, the one who delivered good news to Sarah. I am the leader of the host of the Lord God of Israel, the one who battled with Sennacherib and smote 180,000 men. I am the prince of Israel, the one who fought battles against the kings of Canaan. In the time to come, I will fight the battles of the Lord alongside the Messiah of the Lord—he who sits before you—with the king ‘strong of face’ (‘az panim) and with Armilos, the son of Satan, the spawn of the stone statue. The Lord has appointed me to be the commanding officer over his people and over those who love Him in order to do battle against the leaders of the nations.’

Michael, who is (also) Metatron, answered me saying: ‘I am the angel who guided Abraham throughout all the land of Canaan. I blessed him in the name of the Lord. I am the one who redeemed Isaac and [wept] for him. I am the one who wrestled with Jacob at the crossing of the Jabbok. I am the one who guided Israel in the wilderness for forty years in the name of the Lord. I am the one who appeared to Joshua at Gilgal, and I am the one who rained down brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah. He placed His name within me: Metatron in gematria is the equivalent of Shadday. As for you, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, whose name is Jeconiah, ask me and I will tell you what will happen at the End of Days.’

Then he said to me: ‘This is the Messiah of the Lord: (he has) been hidden in this place until the appointed time (for his manifestation). This is the Messiah of the lineage of David, and his name is Menahem ben ‘Amiel. He was born during the reign of David, king of Israel, and a wind bore him up and concealed him in this place, waiting for the time of the end.’ Then I, Zerubbabel, posed a question to Metatron, the leader of the host of the Lord.  He said to me: ‘The Lord will give a rod (for accomplishing) these salvific acts to Hephsibah, the mother of Menahem ben ‘Amiel. A great star will shine before her, and all the stars will wander aimlessly from their paths.

The Two Witnesses in Revelation 11 are also are exemplified by certain Old Testament prophets returned like Moses or Elijah and even Zerubbabel and Joshua. Revelation describes them showing up at the End of Days at the height of the reign of the Beast/Antichrist. These guys can inflict pandemics of their own, along with turning water into blood, destroying their enemies with fire flowing from their mouths, manipulate the weather and even cause earthquakes.[40] In “Kabbalistic Gematria, Gnosticism and Hellenistic Exegesis,” by Titus Groan at Over Lords of Chaos[41] writes about Gnostic rituals as expressed in texts like the Books of Jeu.

In Gnosticism, as in the other mystic religions, it is characterized by the initiated and the uninitiated dichotomy, loose organization, petty sectarianism, and mystery-mongering. All boasting a mystic revelation and a deeply veiled wisdom whose ultimate object is individual salvation i.e. assurance of the soul’s fortunate destiny after death.

Gnosticism also has a “Redeemer-Deity” as the central object of worship who has already trodden the difficult way which the faithful have to follow. As in all mystical religions, Gnosticism has holy rites and formulas, acts of initiation and consecration, has sacraments, which play a very important part.

Original sources indicate how great a part the sacraments played in the Gnostic sects. Varied forms of holy rites are found:

– Various baptisms, by water, by fire, by the spirit

– Baptism for protection against demons

– Anointing with oil, sealing and stigmatizing, piercing the ears, leading into the bridal chamber

– Partaking of holy food and drink

Sacred formulas, names and symbols are of the highest importance among the Gnostic sects. A central theme is the idea that the soul, on leaving the body, finds its path to the highest heaven opposed by the celestial sphere’s lower deities and demons. The soul can only find its way unhindered to the heavenly home when in possession of the demon’s names and can repeat the proper “holy formula,” or is prepared with the “right symbol,” or has been anointed with the “holy oil.”

Hence the Gnostic’s primary duty is to learn the names of the demons, and equip himself with the sacred formulas and symbols, in order to be certain of a good destiny after death.

You may find some theurgical prayer rituals from the Books of Jeu, here[42]. In the Pistis Sophia, Chapter 18, it tells us that Christ had drained a third of the power of the archons/Zodiac tormentors that was stolen from Sophia and turned their powers against them.

Then said Mary to the Saviour: “My Lord, the word which thou hast spoken unto us: ‘Who hath ears to hear, let him hear,’ thou sayest in order that we may understand the word which thou hast spoken. Hearken, therefore, my Lord, that I may discourse in openness.

Mary interpreteth the discourse from the words of Isaiah. “The word which thou hast spoken: ‘I have taken a third from the power of the rulers of all the æons, and changed their Fate and their sphere over which they rule, in order that, if the race of men invoke them in the mysteries–those which the angels who transgressed have taught them for the accomplishing of their evil and lawless deeds in the mystery of their sorcery,’–in order then that they may no more from this hour accomplish their lawless deeds, because thou hast taken their power from them and from their horoscope-casters and their consulters and from those who declare to the men in the world all things which shall come to pass, in order that they should no more from this hour know how to declare unto them any thing at all which will come to pass (for thou hast changed their spheres, and hast made them spend six months turned to the left and accomplishing their influences, and another six months facing the right and accomplishing their influences),–concerning this word then, my Lord, the power which was in the prophet Isaiah, hath spoken thus and proclaimed aforetime in a spiritual similitude, discoursing on the ‘Vision about Egypt’: ‘Where then, O Egypt, where are thy consulters and horoscope-casters and those who cry out of the earth and those who cry out of their belly? Let them then declare unto thee from now on the deeds which the lord Sabaōth will do!’

“The power then which was in the prophet Isaiah, prophesied before thou didst come, that thou wouldst take away the power of the rulers of the æons and wouldst change their sphere and their Fate, in order that they might know nothing from now on. For this cause it hath said also: ‘Ye shall then know not of what the lord Sabaōth will do ‘; that is, none of the rulers will know what thou wilt do from now on,–for they are ‘Egypt,’ because they are matter. The power then which was in Isaiah, prophesied concerning thee aforetime, saying: ‘From now on ye shall then know not what the lord Sabaōth will do.’ Because of the light-power which thou didst receive from Sabaōth, the Good, who is in the region of the Right, and which is in thy material body to-day, for this cause then, my Lord Jesus, thou hast said unto us: ‘Who hath ears to hear, let him hear,’–in order that thou mightest know whose heart is ardently raised to the kingdom of heaven.”

Returning to the concept of the royal child being “snatched away” per Revelation 12 can be unpacked as I explain in my book The Sun Lady Unveiled. As quoted in my book The Enthronement of Sabaoth: Jewish Elements in Gnostic Creation Myths (p. 38-39) by Francis T. Fallon, the author connects this snatching away with Jewish apocalyptic ascent visionary texts like Ezekiel and Enoch.

We begin with the tradition concerning the ascent of the apocalyptic visionary. First of all. we note that the term “to catch up.. or “to snatch up·· is used in apocalyptic contexts for the translation lo heaven (e.g. Enoch in Wis 4: 11; Adam in Apoc Mos 37) or for the mystic rapture of the visionary (e.g. Paul in 2 Cor 12: 2, 4). Next, as for the chariot and instruction or revelation by Life, ultimately the material derives from the prophets Ezekiel (I, 10 and 43:3) and Isaiah (6), who have a vision of the divine chariot and/or throne. But, then, within apocalyptic Judaism. the visionary is first snatched up or taken up. given a vision of the divine throne and/or chariot and then provided with a revelation concerning secret mysteries. For example, in I Enoch. Enoch in his dream vision is lifted up into heaven by the winds ( 14: 8) and brought into a house within a house where he saw “a lofty throne : its appearance was as crystal. and the wheels thereof as the shining sun; and there was the vision of cherubim.. (14: 18).

As in Ezechiel, the association here of wheels and a throne indicates that the motifs of chariot and throne have been united. Enoch then receives revelation first in the form of audition. He is charged to bring the word of the Lord to the Watchers (14:24-16:4). Then he receives revelation in the form of vision and interpretation. He is taken through the cosmos and through Sheol in order to see the hidden places and treasuries, while the angel accompanying him explains all to him (17-36). Similarly. in the T Levi, in a dream-vision Levi ascends to heaven at the bidding of an angel (2: 7). As he ascends through the three heavens their contents are revealed to him and explained by the accompanying angel (2: 8-3: 10). Upon arriving at the highest heaven, he is given a vision of the Most High upon his throne of glory (5: I). Then Levi receives the revelation that is more important for this document : “Levi. I have given thee the blessings of the priesthood until I come and sojourn in the midst of Israel . . (5:2; cf. 8:2-19; 14:7; 16:1; 17- 18). 52 Again in 2 Enoch, Enoch is taken up by angels (3: I) through the various heavens (3: 2-19: 6). Through vision and audition the contents of these heavens are revealed to him by the angels. Then finally he beholds the throne of the Lord and the glory of his face (20-22). Enoch himself is then transformed from his earthly garments (22:4-12). He is instructed first by the angel Pravuil or Vretil (23: 1-6); then, after being seated at the left of the Lord near Gabriel. he is given the major revelation as he is instructed by the Lord concerning the origins of the cosmos (24-33).

In Revelation 3:10-23, Jesus addresses the Church of Philadelphia and tells them to remain true to their faith, and not to allow others to steal their crown of life.

Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. 

I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 

The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

In “Sethian Crowns, Sethian Martyrs? Jewish Apocalypses and Christian Martyrs in a Gnostic Literary Tradition” by Dylan Burns, he elaborates more on these heavenly crowns. Keep in mind “Corona” means crown!

As in many apocalypses, similitude to angels allows one to join the heavenly liturgy: “attaining the incorruptible crown of glory (τὴν ἀμαράντινον τῆς δόξης στέφανον), [the martyrs] might endlessly praise along with the angels the God who had showered this grace upon them.” Other Gnostic and apocryphal texts use crowns to express a variety of themes and ideas; generally, one sees less emphasis on doxology and eschatology than in the Jewish texts, although the crown remains a mark of martyrdom. Occasionally it belongs to heavenly entities, as in the Valentinian Gospel of Truth, where the Father’s forbearance is a “crown upon” his head, or in Pistis Sophia, where Sophia receives a beam of light that becomes a crown that protects her (NHC I, 3.23.24; Pist. Soph. 59).

In other texts, mortals acquire crowns; the Teaching of Silvanus symbolizes education by the acquisition of a crown and robe (NHC VII, 4.87.4–14, 89.19–24). The same text, as well as the Interpretation of Knowledge, uses the crown as an agonistic metaphor to express victory, in the latter case, over sin (NHC VII, 4.112.17–25; NHC XI, 1.21.32). The crown can also indicate salvation, as in the Odes of Solomon.46 Certainly, some Gnostic texts mention crowns as a symbol of triumph in martyrdom (1 Apoc. Jas. NHC I,2.8.39; Apoc. Pet. (Copt.) NHC VII, 3.71.30). Others re-constellate the image to attack martyrdom, as does the Testimony of Truth, which declares instead that “this, therefore, is the true testimony (μαρτυρία): when man knows himself and the God who is over the truth, he will be saved, and he will be crowned (στεφανοῦν) with the crown unfading.”

In Apocalypses among Gnostics and Manichaeans by Dylan Burns, he connects these divine crowns with Gnostic literature like Allogenes and Zostrianos, as well.

Another apocalypse from Nag Hammadi, Zostrianos, addresses the end of history alongside technical metaphysics. Quoted above, Porphyry tells us that it was among several apocalypses, including Allogenes (preserved in some redaction in NHC XI,3) that were the subject of contention between the Neoplatonic philosopher Plotinus (ca. 263 CE) and Gnostic Christians in his reading group. Therefore, this body of Gnostic apocalypses—the “Platonizing” Sethian literature—was a major player in third-century Hellenic philosophy (Turner 2001: esp. 693–744). The text describes the celestial ascent of its eponymous seer, who engages in discourses with angels in heaven about Neoplatonic psychology and theology. Along the way, he is transformed into various types of angels:

“I stood there, staring into the light of the truth that truly exists from [a] self-begotten root [with some] great angels and glories. . .I was baptized in the [name of] the self-begotten deity by the powers that exist [upon the] living water: Michar and Mi[chael], and I was purified by the great Barpharanges. And they [glorified] me and wrote me into glory. [I was] sealed by them, those who exist upon these powers, [Michar], Michael, Seldao, Ele[nos], and Zogenethlos. And I [became] an angel able to see [god] and I stood up on the first aeon, which is the fourth, with the souls. (NHC VIII,1.6.3–21, tr. mine, with reference to Sieber 1991 and Barry et al.” 2000. See also VIII, 1.7.1–22, 30.29–31.23)

Zostrianos also receives various crowns, probably evidence of the author’s desire to authorize his metaphysical speculations with literary traditions familiar to Jewish and Christian readers of the apocalypses (Burns 2014). Finally, having descended to Earth once more, he begins preaching:

Ye living, the Seed of the holy Seth, understand! Do not disobey me! Awaken your divine part to God, [and] empower the elect soul, (which is) empty of evil; look at the dissolution of this place, and follow the indissoluble unbegottenness. The father [of] everything invites you, waiting for you; while others will inflict violence upon you, he will not abandon you. Do not baptize yourselves in death, or entrust yourselves to those who are inferior to you as if they were better. Flee the madness and the bondage of femininity, and choose for yourselves the salvation of [masculinity]. You have not come into suffering but you have come into bondage. Dissolve yourselves, and that which has bound you will be dissolved. Save yourselves so that it (i.e. the soul) will be saved! The loving Father has sent you the Savior and he has strengthened you. Why do you hesitate? Search, when you are sought. Listen, when you are invited. For time is short. Do not be deceived; great is the aeon of the aeon of the living, (and great are) the punishments of those who remain unpersuaded. (NHC VIII,1.130.16–131.23)

This sermon is a curious thematic mélange. Most obviously, it stresses the urgency of repentance in the face of the Endzeit : “time is short!” Yet its paraenesis is not merely recognition of the savior and the imminent end of things. Rather, the reader must recognize the “dissolution” of the material world and its trappings, and foster philosophically informed contemplation of the “unbegottenness” that characterizes the deity, as described for the preceding hundred pages. Such knowledge will provide salvation.

In my early twenties, the phrase “time is short” rang through me as if I stood in front of a concert stereo. I was sitting in a local community college class at the time from what I remember. Dylan Burns’s article brings up an important point on repentance. While repentance is a basic key teaching in original Christianity, which in Greek is translated as “metanioia” or the “changing of one’s mind” it is also key teaching of Gnostic theology involving Sophia and the repentant race of psychics to be translated as the Pneumatics or the Spirituals destined to dwell in the Upper Aeons as the “Unshakeable Race” of the Gnostics.

At Laurence Caruana’s Gnostic Glossary site, he elaborates more on this topic.[43] This is how he also defines repentance: “Repentance comes from the Greek metanoia, which means to change (meta) our mind (noia) or turn around (meta) our way of knowing (noia).” In the Book of Revelation Chapter 9, 20, it tells us that at the End of Days, people will refuse to repent and give glory to God, even when God’s angels summon Apollyon and his hosts of scorpion-like fallen angels to torture those who do not have the Seal of God on their foreheads.

20 The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.

In Spring 2020, a television show called “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” premiered on Showtime—only a few weeks after my book The Sun Lady Unveiled was published. The show is mainly about the dysfunctional relationship between Santa Muerte (St. Holy Death) and the shapeshifting demon Magda. Magda sounds a lot like Mary Magdalene—a Hollywood depiction of the Dark Mother, or the dark twin of Mary. All of this happens in the backdrop of 1930’s Los Angeles.

St. Holy Death.
Some model that reminds me of the Sun Lady.

The Book of Revelation, chapter 12, tells us of a pregnant Woman Clothed with the Sun, wailing in birth pangs. It also tells us before St. Michael flung the dragon to the earth, he pursued the winged Sun Lady to devour her and her royal child of God. But in the last moment, they are snatched away to safety.

Many have speculated that this story connects to the great celestial sign pointing to a series of future calamities which are unfolding before our eyes. These stories, symbols, and archetypes point to an emerging revelation about humanity’s secret past and ultimate destiny.

We must travel back to ancient Israel, Samaria, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Babylon to find the origins of the Sun Lady. Why does the occult place special emphasis on the Book of Revelation? Do you have the heart and mind to discover the truth? Join me, Alex Rivera, for an exciting and dangerous journey into the esoteric and hidden dimensions of the Sun Lady Unveiled!

Welcome to the Unveiling (Part 1)

As the global reset draws closer, I have noticed a few things happen in my own life. Months ago, right after I published my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, messages containing themes connected to crowns, raptures, and parallel universes kept appearing. James True, an author specializing in mind control warfare and religious technological themes, has often used the tagline “Greatest Apocalypse Ever” to describe our current covid hellscape, which continues to ravage the world for the Endgame. While this unveiling is accompanied by crisis after crisis (pandemics, riots, lockdowns, election fraud scams, threats of WW3, cyberwarfare, global resets)[1], an even bigger crisis looms over the horizon. Tracy Twyman’s last few books that came out were foreboding to the max—anticipating what was to come in this year of perfect vision, 2020.

Tracy Twyman, who died in the summer of 2019, is the author of many books. In particular, the last three books were foreboding in the worst possible way. In the book Baphomet: The Temple Mystery Unveiled, which I co-wrote with Tracy Twyman, we concluded that there were certain secret societies and even more traditional religious leaders (including cabbalistic Rabbis, among many others) are secretly trying to usher in the Apocalypse. Somehow, this involves using blasphemous sex magic, alchemy, mind-control and time travel, at the behest of the infernal trinity—Samael, Lilith, and Baphomet, so that they may incarnate into the Antichrist, damn the human race, destroy the universe, usurp the New Jerusalem—the Heavenly cubed city that descends from the chaotic heavens at the End of the Apocalypse. Revelation, however, tells us, all these demons will be destroyed in the Lake of Fire, along with Death and Hell.

As we continue towards the end of 2020 and into the Brave New World of the global reset, the old-world order of things is quickly dissolving, while the “new normal” sweeps over the landscape–signaling the rebirth of the ancient cult of Saturn. I have made similar statements in my previous mega essay The Sun Lady Tales, but I will elaborate and really get into it here. In my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, I explored many of these ideas, as well. Before Tracy Twyman’s untimely death, she was heavily investigating child sex trafficking, Isaac Kappy’s “suicide” and mind control on a series of YouTube videos. But before that, her focus was centered on a diabolical plot of black magic to conjure the Antichrist and his Satanic minions so that he would plunge the world into the great tribulation so that they can act like little gods on earth or escape into another realm so that they can officialize this grand con status of playing God by dethroning God by storming the gates of heaven at Armageddon. Could it all be related? I do not know.

Margaret Barker, in the book, The King of the Jews: Temple Theology in John’s Gospel, she identifies these dark forces being active in Jesus’ time.

The early Christians identified closely with Isaiah. Matthew in particular shows frequently how Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecies (e.g. Matt. 1.23; 2.23; 3.3, 17; 4.15; 5.4, 6, 35 and many more). This may have originated with Jesus himself, since Luke says that when he was in the synagogue at Nazareth, he claimed to be fulfilling Isaiah 61 (Luke 4.18-21). The Christians also expanded and preserved the Ascension of Isaiah—originally a collection of Jewish stories about Isaiah—and in the Christian version the prophet is a thinly veiled picture of James, the leader of the Jerusalem church. The stories depict the same conflict as in John 8: the rulers in Jerusalem are the agents of Sammael Melkira, two names which mean “God of the Blind” and “King of Evil”. In the stories, Sammael is another name for Belier/Belial.

Perhaps this force behind behind “communitarianism” or the “great” reset of the globalists.[2] This “New World Order” is not just geopolitical, financial, and even religious. It is the complete alchemical universal transformation—constituting the death and rebirth of the sun and the entire universe under the control of a new god, of a New Æon. The Beast/The Antichrist. All secret societies (regardless of their members’ awareness) are dedicated to this end. Tracy Twyman wrote about all this in her book, Genuflect. In the article Bloomberg, Musk and Mithras: Billionaires busting the Matrix?[3] Tracy Twyman wrote about what these black magicians are up to.

2. So why would anyone want to open these doorways to the realms above and below the universe?

There’s the obvious curiosity factor. People want to see what lies above and below the dimensions available to our everyday senses. But most of the magicians who would be capable of performing such a rite are probably motivated by ambition. Some magicians, I believe, have made alliances with the spirits trapped in the underworld, who have helped them discover the secrets of how to do this. These spirits desperately want to be released from their infernal prisons. In order to get the assistance from incarnated humans that they need to do this, they agree to help the magicians they work with to realize their ambitions of becoming gods by penetrating the realm above.

3. Is there any potential danger in doing this?

Absolutely. In addition to the problems inherent in the release of infernal spirits from Hell, there is the issue of instability in the universe caused by this. When the floor of existence is ruptured, it has the potential to collapse the invisible “pillar” or “pillars” that are said in religious and occult traditions to hold up the heavens. This has the effect of dethroning what the Gnostics called the “Archons,” or the seven planetary divinities of classical mythology. This means bringing the Sun, the Moon, and the planets crashing down to Earth from the heavens. In Greek mythology, it was said that if Atlas wasn’t there to hold up Heaven, it would merge with Earth and snuff out all of existence. This, I think, is the real danger.

Indeed, in Templar artifacts, Mete is also depicted as a dark, titanic goddess holding down the chains that connect to the Sun and the Moon and pull it down to snuff out creation. The figure of Mete points to a ritual shown to bring down the heavens and put an end to fate. Joseph Von Hammer-Purgstall claims that the word “Baphomet” connects a Gnostic ritual being the “Baptism of Wisdom” to release the souls trapped in the prison of matter, in the most violent and blasphemous way possible. While there are certainly other Gnostic rituals which are closer to Christianity and are much more enlightened in the most beneficial way, as we see in texts like The Pistis Sophia and the Books of Jeu (we will touch on these books later), and certainly, most of the Nag Hammadi library is ascetic and even sublime in its epic prose, there is also a much darker version of gnosis that crystalized into various secret societies that follow after the Knights Templar. Tracy Twyman, in her essay, “Let the Heavens Fall: The Rites of Destruction”[4], she connects Enochian apocalyptic literature with Dr. Faustus and Cabbalistic legends of the Beast.

In Sefer Hekhalot, also known as The Third Book of Enoch, it tells the story of the fallen angels that bred giants with human women, and it says that they taught their hybrid children abominations of ritual magic. One particular passage is worth quoting:

They brought down the sun, the moon, the stars and the constellations… How was it that they had the strength to bring them down? It was only because Uzza, Azza and Azael taught them sorceries that they brought them down, for otherwise they would not have been able to bring them down.”

Interestingly, in Christopher Marlowe’s Faust, this is one of the things that the title character asks the demon Mephistopheles to be ready to do for him:

I charge thee wait upon me whilst I live
To do whatever Faustus shall command,
Be it to make the moon drop from her sphere
Or the ocean to overwhelm the world.

Now the demon mentioned in Sefer Hekhalot — Azazel — is, in most versions of the tale, one of two leaders of the fallen angels who helped organize the conspiracy among them to impregnate human women. In the First Book of Enoch, God instructs Enoch, who is writing the history of the affair, to “ascribe the whole crime” to Azazel and make him solely responsible in the official record, including the disastrous result of it: the creation of giants who wrecked the Earth to the point that God had to bring the Deluge to get rid of them.

Did Azazel know that these actions would result in such destruction? Was that in fact the point? After all, in both the Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions, the fallen angels are shown being jealous of mankind, and plotting our doom. They did not think that God should have created us in the first place, and complained that God would honor so much a creation made from “clay.” Our physicality, in the eyes of these angels, is what made us inherently inferior to them, as they are made out of a much subtler substance — “smokeless fire,” as the Muslims believe. The Koran says that Satan was cast out of paradise for refusing to bow down and worship Adam. The books of Enoch say that after the Flood, Azazel and his accomplices were cast into “Dudael,” a wasteland of suffering, as an eternal punishment.

This eternal stretch of painful imprisonment, along with his anger at man and resentment of material creation, might explain why Azazel and his colleagues might be interested in seeing creation put to an end. This brings us to another set of legends regarding Azazel. Rabbinical sources tell us that the tempting serpent in the Garden of Eden was a hermaphroditic creature that consisted of the male demon Samael and the female demoness Lilith compounded together. The cabalists called this creature “the Beast” and “the Other God.” This is especially interesting because some Gnostics referred to the demiurge who created physical reality by the name of “Samael” also. The cabalistic work Treatise on the Left Emanation by R. Isaac b. Jacob Ha-Kohen and Tr. Ronald C. Kiener describes Samael as evil, but specifies that this is “not because of his nature but because he desires to unite and intimately mingle with an emanation not of his nature.”

The ancients believed that people could do rituals to invoke the energies of the planets and stars into their own bodies. In fact, they believed that the energy from the Sun was the chief source of the energy (both physical and metaphysical) that sustained life on Earth. Even when the sun went away at night, they believed that life continued by means of the energy coming from the stars and planets. In The Book of Nabathean Agriculture we read:

…The Sun sets for the night and one might thus presume that our world would then relapse back to its dead state. This, as we may every night perceive, does not happen. The reason for this is that during the night the other celestial bodies take the place of the Sun and substitute for it (NA, pp. 245–246). This gives the basis for a belief in the effects of the stars, as well … as one may use star- or moon-bathing, tanjìm, i.e., letting something be influenced by the rays of the stars and the Moon.

This connects to something I wrote about recently on this blog (see the quote below), also referencing a book I wrote several years ago:

In Money Grows on the Tree of Knowledge, I wrote how these images from Flamel’s book illustrate certain aspects of the process of alchemy, which can be gleaned if one compares them with other alchemical tracts as well, such as the 16th-century Splendor Solis by Salomon Trismosin, or Fulcanelli’s Mystery of the Cathedrals, published in the 1920s. It was from studying these manuscripts that I discovered that the secret alchemical recipe for longevity is shown to be bathing in the blood of children that has been infused with stellar influences, which Fulcanelli called “the Bath of the Stars.” Fulcanelli also makes reference to alchemy as “celestial agriculture,” which might explain the images of fieldworkers that appear in The Book of Abraham the Jew and other alchemical tracts.

What I have said in the past is that many of the secrets hinted at in alchemical texts hint that one can perform this process — bringing the influences of the stars down from Heaven into the bodies of children, then slaughtering those children, and then drinking and bathing in their blood, to obtain youthful skin or even eternal life. This may be the death and rebirth indicated by the Ouroboros serpent, and many other mystical symbols as well. This may also be the meaning of the term “Baptism of Wisdom,” which Baphomet’s name has been interpreted to mean. Also, in the depiction of Baphomet by Eliphas Levi, he is shown with the Latin words “Solve” and “Coagula, (“Dissolve” and “Coagulate”). These words are used by alchemists to describe the process of dissolving atoms to their “primal material” and then reconstituting it in the desired form.

So is it possible that there are spiritual entities who want to slaughter us — the children of the gods — and dissolve our universe in order to bring about the rebirth of a reality more preferable to them, in which they (representatives of the older, pre-physical universe) are once again placed in their proper role at the helm, instead of being subordinate to men made of clay? Are these the spirits who have inspired such destructive rituals as described above?

Indeed, in Luke 17:26 (KJV), Jesus talks about his Second Coming at the End Times[5], declaring that, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” But just a couple of lines later, in 17:28‐30, Jesus also prophesies a fiery destruction that is to come:

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

In my book The Sun Lady Unveiled, I posited that the End Times will be marked by cosmic warfare—the likes of which the world has never seen before and will never see again—until the beginning swallows the end. This type of warfare will also be reflected on earth when the triggered uprising and revolution occurs. This is the same as what the Black Awakening is all about (we will get to this later.)

As quoted earlier, it was the Watchers or the fallen angels that brought down the stars to earth. According to Aleister Crowley’s Liber AL vel Legis, “Every man and woman is a star…” Could this line refer to fallen, human spirits dropped from the Pleroma, but seized and kidnapped by the fallen angels in the Great War in Heaven? As mentioned in my book, Azazel was also considered synonymous with Venus as well, which is interesting considering figures like Isis and Sophia are also depicted as holding down the chains of the archons and seen as destroyers of the universe. These stars are also mentioned in 1 Enoch 18:14: “And I beheld seven stars like blazing mountains and like spirits entertaining me.” These seven stars could refer to the Pleiades constellation. Here is the whole quote in full:

“The angel said: ‘This is the place of the consummation of heaven and earth; it is a prison for the stars of heaven, and for the host of heaven. And the stars that roll over the fire are they who have transgressed the command of God before their rising, because they did not come forth in their time. And he was enraged at them, and bound them till the time of the consummation of their sins in the year of the mystery.” (Enoch 18:13-15) 

“The Pleiades”, by Elihu Wedder (1885).

As other authors have pointed out, this star constellation refers to many different points of origin: the seven fallen angels/archons, the seven brides that mated with the Greek Titans, and the seven churches addressed by Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Book of Revelation. In Revelation, it depicts the Living One, the Alpha, and the Omega as holding the seven stars (the church) in his hand and is the one only found worthy to open up the scrolls and the seven seals of judgment. Revelation 10 opens with the scene of a mighty angel descending from heaven, while robed in a cloud:

“with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’” 10 I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”

Some even suspect that the “little scroll” that John consumes is the Book of Enoch![6]

Angel of the Revelation (Book of Revelation, chapter 10), circa 1803–5, by William Blake (1757–1827)

According to the Gnostic Pistis Sophia, the Church was also actually crafted by Sophia-Achamoth.[7] One website connects[8] the Pleiadean stars with a sort of a holding tank or prison for the fallen angels. The author also reveals that Ishtar, the Queen of Heaven and Harlot of Babylon, is also copulating with UFO abductees for good measure.

Let’s take a close look at the verses in chapter 18 of 1 ENOCH VERSE 15: “Then the angel said, ‘This place until the consumption of heaven and earth will be the prison of the stars and the host of heaven.’”

This ‘place’ is the seven stars of the Pleiades. The word ‘prison’ in Greek (teresis) means “a watching – keeping” similar to a “place of keeping.” This means that the seven stars of the Pleiades will be a prison, a place of keeping of these seven fallen angels. {{Is it any wonder that the Pleiades – in particular – is so often mentioned in THE NEW AGE CONTACTEE literature? 

I have often mentioned this seemingly bizarre connection from people who track the Semjases of the Pleiadian system, such as Richard Thompson who recorded the New Age “gibberish” of Semjasa (as contactor) who gave the same to Billy Meier which Richard cited in his book, “ALIEN IDENTITIES” recently I saw Gary Bates cite another reference to Semjase, Semjaza in his book, “ALIEN INTRUSION;” this time it revolved around “her” possible disguised Fallen Angel feeding false or misguided information to author Brad Steiger as well as Fred Bell, grandson of Alexander Graham Bell, so it seems that this ‘lady’ QUEEN OF HEAVEN from the Pleiades is very active in UFO circles; even Whitley Strieber seems to have had sex with a similar Fallen Angel (posing as a female, going by the name of Ishtar, a mother-goddess of Babylon, who has many names in different cultures throughout the world,) as per his own admission in the book, “COMMUNION.” Perhaps Enoch’s clue about the seven stars as well as the actual mention of the Pleiades in The Bible are not coincidental in my humble opinion, and the names they give out may simply be clues as to whom they really are ~~ i.e., FALLEN ANGELS, and with its fruit, by any other name smells as bitter!.}}

According to Helena Lehman, in her article called “The Pleiades Connection to the New Jerusalem,”[9] connects both the Heavenly cubical city of Revelation and “Alcyone” the brightest star of the Pleiades as also being the offspring of the Morning Star as one of the titles of Christ in Revelation.

….the Pleiades Star Cluster may be allegorically connected to the New Jerusalem, which is to be the heavenly and earthly home of the Bride of Christ and her Redeemer Yahshua Ha Mashiach for eternity. In fact, the word “Al Cyone” or “kingfisher” (a brightly colored little bird) in Greek, was the name of a mythological Princess who married a man named Ceyx, who was the king of Thessaly and the son of Phosphoros, which is a Greek name for the planet Venus. Phosphoros was also known as the “Morning Star” in Greek. Strangely, though the wandering star Venus is associated with the Roman goddess by that name, the goddess Venus was known as Aphrodite in Greece.

Although Phosphoros (Phosphorus in English) has been identified with Lucifer due to the connection of the Greek word Phosphoros with the Latin word Lucifer meaning “shining” or “luminescent”, the term “Morning Star” is a special appellation ONLY for Yahshua in the Book of Revelation (See Rev. 22:16). This could suggest that Al Cyone is meant to signify the Bride of Christ, and by extension, the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem is the heavenly city constructed by YHWH God for His saints, and it is where our Heavenly Father and His Son will dwell with the Bride of Christ or Church of Philadelphia for all eternity after the Millennial Rule of Yahshua, when the New Heaven and New Earth will be created.

In Greek Mythology, which was invented to explain the historical events of the Bible’s Book of Genesis from the perspective of the outcast Cain rather than from the godly line of Seth, Pleione was the wife of Atlas, and she gave birth to seven daughters. Atlas and Pleione are the names of two of the stars in the Pleiades, while the names of their daughters are connected to seven other stars in the Pleiades. These became known in legend as the Seven Sisters, and it is my firm belief that they represent the Seven Churches of Revelation in the Star Gospel. 

The most common legend about these Seven Sisters is that they were the immortal nymph companions of the goddess Artemis. Collectively, these sisters were called the Pleiades, and they were very close – spending all their time together. That is, until one of them became mortal by falling in love with a human, and was thereby eventually claimed by Hades in death. Meanwhile, the other six nymphs stayed immortal. However, they were eventually given an abode in the heavens as a form of protection by the top god Zeus to protect them from the amorous advances of Orion. According to the Greeks, Orion was a mortal hero and half son of the gods who found the Pleiades sisters to be very desirable. This happened after Orion got involved in a hunt with Artemis, upon which he discovered the beautiful nymphs in her care and began to relentlessly pursue them.

Furthermore, the Pleiades signify the Seven Churches of Revelation, which are not filled with immortal people as yet, but mortal people who have been promised everlasting life and immortality as a result of their faith in Yahshua as God’s Son, who was offered up as an atoning sacrifice for sin. 

Furthermore, one of these Churches – the Church of Philadelphia – is held in higher regard than the others and is identified in Revelation, Chapter 3 as the Bride of Christ, who will dwell in the New Jerusalem with her Five Wise Virgin handmaidens in attendance. In Yahshua’s Parable of the Ten Virgins, the Five Wise Virgins represent groups of born-again saints that will be taken out of five of the Seven Churches of Revelation, which are depicted in the Pleiades Star Cluster.

Heavenly ladder to the Pleiades.

Another Masonic ladder to Pleiades.

There are, of course, Masonic traditions of the Pleiades forming a ladder to Heaven. According to The Bible Temple’s article “Astronomy Confirms the Accuracy of the Book of Enoch”[10] Pleiades also connects to the Sumerian gods of the underworld.[11]

In the Greek myth, seven women were put in the starry heaven because of their mingling with the Titans, by which they were made pregnant. This is also a clear parallel to Genesis 6. And in Enoch, which describes this story in detail, we read, in the chapter after chapter 18, that the women who were seduced by the fallen angels, were to be imprisoned together with those angels, among those seven stars. These Greek women were called the Pleiades, and thereby we know that those seven stars in Enoch must be the Pleiades. Then there is also a myth from Mesopotamia, where seven demons were bound as seven stars in the sky. Also here those stars are identified as the Pleiades. This star formation was very well-known to all the ancients, because of its beautiful appearance and for its role for agricultural dates. Thus we can be quite sure that the stars Enoch saw on the horizon above Antarctica, were the Pleiades.

The Pleiades are seen as only seven stars with the naked eye (or as six since ancient times). Yet Enoch says this place is a prison for the stars of heaven and for the host of heaven. This tells us there are more than just those seven stars bound together in that place. And the Pleiades actually is a star cluster, consisting of more than 1000 stars! And it is one of the closest clusters to Earth. So, again a surprisingly accurate description, no doubt not given by human knowledge.

To further strengthen the Enoch/Pleiades relation, compare Enoch 18:15, where he is speaking of the seven stars: “And he was enraged at them, and bound them…” with Job 38:31: “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades…?”

In the Reddit thread, the author quotes an excerpt from “The Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia” (1903), where Sumerian underworld titanic gods emerge from the depths of the abyss to wage war against the human race and the gods.

“There are certain spirits described as “the Seven” around whom a great many poems were composed and welded into the incantations and spells. The best known is the Invocation against the Seven: —

Seven are they! Seven are they!

In the Ocean Deep seven are they!

Battening in Heaven seven are they,

Bred In the depths of Ocean.

Nor male nor female are they,

But are as the roaming windblast,

No wife have they, no son can they beget;

Knowing neither mercy nor pity,

They hearken not to prayer or supplication.

They are as horses reared among the hills…

Of these seven [the first] is the South Wind.

The second Is a dragon with mouth agape

That none can [withstand];

The third is a grim leopard

That carrieth off children…

The fourth is a terrible serpent…

The fifth is a furious beast [?]

After which no restraint…

The sixth is a rampant […]

Which against god and king.

The seventh is an evil windstorm…

These seven are the Messengers of Anu, the king:

Bearing gloom from city to city,

Tempests that furiously scour the heavens,

Dense clouds that over the sky bring gloom,

Rushing windgusts, casting darkness o’er the brightest day,

Forcing their way with baneful windstorms.

Mighty destroyers, the deluge of the Storm-God,

Stalking at the right hand of the Storm-God.

They take their stand for evil, and none may oppose.”

These underworld gods also sound curiously close to the Beast that emerges from the sea in Revelation as well. According to Sumerian myth, Nammu, the mother of the gods, including Enki, is also equated with the Cosmic Abyss or the “Abzu”.[12] In the city of Eridu, Enki’s temple was also known as “Abzu” (house of the deep waters) and was located at the edge of a swamp. Wikipedia entry for Abzu[13] tells us more about this character:

Abzu (apsû) is depicted as a deity[3] only in the Babylonian creation epic, the Enûma Elish, taken from the library of Assurbanipal (c. 630 BCE) but which is about 500 years older. In this story, he was a primal being made of fresh water and a lover to another primal deity, Tiamat, a creature of salt water. The Enuma Elish begins: “When above the heavens (e-nu-ma e-liš) did not yet exist nor the earth below, Apsu the freshwater ocean was there, the first, the begetter, and Tiamat, the saltwater sea, she who bore them all; they were still mixing their waters, and no pasture land had yet been formed, nor even a reed marsh.” This resulted in the birth of the younger gods, who later murdered Apsu in order to usurp his lordship of the universe. Enraged, Tiamat gives birth to the first dragons, filling their bodies with “venom instead of blood”, and made war upon her treacherous children, only to be slain by Marduk, the god of Storms, who then forms the heavens and earth from her corpse.

According to New World Encyclopedia[14], Nammu’s daughter, the Sumerian goddess Ninhursag was once considered to be a “true and great lady of heaven” only to be supplanted later by the likes of Ishtar, much like how the Whore of Babylon supersedes the Woman Clothed with the Sun in Revelation. Interestingly, her symbol resembles the Omega sign. In fact, Nammu as the Queen of the Supernal Eden was originally a creator deity just like Yahweh and other sky gods as she is eventually replaced by them as a creator deity.[15]

Returning to Tracy Twyman, in her book Clock Shavings, Tracy revealed some startling information about what it will be like in the End of Days, where the Up and the Down meet in the Middle. In other words, Heaven, Hell, and Earth will co-mingle as prophesied by Tracy Twyman and other contacts. One can read more here.[16]

Interestingly, there is a folk legend in modern Greece saying that demons known as “Kallikantzaroi” are let loose from the underworld on December 25th of each year, when the sun “stops moving,” according to tradition. This happens because all year long they work to saw down the pole that separates Heaven from Earth, and at Christmas they are finally successful, leaving them free to roam the Earth. If they were to remain at large, it would purportedly cause calamity on Earth.

But luckily, on Epiphany Day, January 6, God puts them back in prison down below, and the pole is restored, so that they have to start all over again sawing it down once more. Not knowing this story, years ago I channeled instructions for “the Divine Rite” of the OLE, meant to mimic the coming crowning of the Grail king. Remember, the rite involved pretending to sacrifice the king, so that Cain could be released from his prison, and possess the monarch’s body, bringing him back to life. This, I envisioned, would be like a key unlocking the timeless realm of Drakenberg and merging it with our own. The date I had chosen to perform this rite each year was December 23rd, the days that King Dagobert II was killed in a hunting accident, just like Cain.

Cain wants to get out. All of those in who are in Hell want out. But the fallen angels down there know something that the human spirits also trapped there probably don’t know: that at the End of Times, the Abyss will open up and let them out of Hell, temporarily. Heaven will also open up, and literally merge with Earth as the white cube of the New Jerusalem descends. In my mind, it is most likely that the black cubic city will ascend from the depths as well. Heaven, Hell and Earth will all co-mingle in a timeless moment. Perhaps the black and white cubes will merge. This may be the ultimate explanation for the checker pattern on the Ageio board.

This, I think, will be their opportunity to switch places with humankind, and be back in the bosom of the Lord. Then again, perhaps they think that they will be able to take control of the celestial Ark, the cube, and be in the driver’s seat, the God position, when things start anew. I think the belief is that, if they can get inside the white cube, in the position of God, they can be God, and they can win the Apocalypse game. Meanwhile, they believe, Baphomet will get his expressed wish: to see “MAN LOST IN HELL.”

We will be outside the cube, trapped in the chaotic Abyss where they were once tortured. Mephistopheles describes this future to Dr. Faustus during one of their conversations. As it says in the Marlowe play:

Mephistopheles: Now, Faustus, ask what thou wilt.

Faustus: First will I question with thee about hell. Tell me, where is the place that men call hell?

Mephistopheles: Under the heavens.

Faustus: Ay, but whereabout?

Mephistopheles: Within the bowels of these elements, Where we are tortur’d and remain for ever: Hell hath no limits, nor is circumscrib’d In one self place; for where we are is hell, And where hell is, there must we ever be:

And, to conclude, when all the world dissolves, And every creature shall be purified, All places shall be hell that are not heaven. When the portals open, Hell rises and Heaven descends.

This is the “Marriage of Heaven and Hell” which William Blake wrote about. Perhaps it is the ultimate “chemical wedding.” This is the true “Golden Dawn,” which the magical order is named after. This is why they have a hexagram for a logo, often showing a golden sun within the descending triangle, merging into the blue Abyss waters of the ascending triangle. Interestingly, in the Golden Dawn rituals, they treat the Garden of Eden as though the place itself “fell” along with Adam. In their graphical depictions of the Fall, they show the Dragon of Revelation enveloping Adam and Eve, and encompassing Christ as he dies on the Cross. They also speak of both the pre-and post-fall Eden as being places that exist presently. The event of the Fall, as well as the restoration of Paradise, are both referred to as in the present tense.

Similarly, Baphomet talks about the war in Heaven, the fall of Eden, and the Apocalypse as all being events that, to him, are occurring right now. When we became confused and asked why he was talking about these past events and future events like they were presently happening, he said: “NOW REALLY SOON.” Note that the abbreviation “NOW” (commonly used now to refer to the “New World Order” of the coming Anti-Christ) is an anagram of “now.” It goes without saying that, as our time-space dimension merges with those that are outside of time, our perception of time will stop. This is why modern Satanists refer to the concept of “Year Zero.” It is not really “Anno Satanas,” the year the Church of Satan was created, in 1966. It is that future “final hour” that has yet to come. This concept of the true “End of Times,” and the breakdown of the time dimension, explains why the Beast of the Apocalypse is described by St. John as “the beast that was, and is not, and yet is,” said to have been born in the “wilderness” of chaos.

Chapter 17: 8-13 states: “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”

These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. This “Year Zero” may be what is depicted on the Great Seal of the United States. Everything that exists is contained within the walls of the pyramid, surmounted by the All-Seeing Eye of the prison guard, surrounded by a barren landscape of nothingness. The Latin phrase “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” is usually translated “New Order of the Ages.” It is an allusion to Virgil’s Eclogue IV, where it says:

Now comes the final era of the Sibyl’s song; The great order of the ages is born afresh.

The Virgin and the Reign of Saturn returns

Now a new lineage is sent down from high heaven.

I think that it ultimately refers to the dissolving of reality, and the coagulation, or collection, of a small remnant of that reality to be saved, via an “ark” or Hermetically sealed alchemical vessel. Cain said that one of the keys to winning Ageio is to “ACCEPT DEFEAT” because, “IF YOU ACCEPT DEFEAT, REALITY CANNOT WIN.” As you will recall, there is ultimately not much competition between the white and black armies in the game, because there is no doubt that the white side is going to win. So perhaps the game is to play both sides, and make sure that you’re on the winning side when the game stops.

At the Golden Dawn, the Abyss rises to merge with the fire coming down from Heaven

The “Year Zero” that Tracy Twyman mentions sounds a lot like “prelude” (being 2020) to the actual dimensional convergence. We will revisit Tracy Twyman’s occult prophecies related to the Antichrist later in this series. Virgil’s Eclogue is particularly intriguing since I’ve written in previous articles, that the Age of Aquarius we are now entering is also the Age of Saturn.[17] The reason the most primeval era is called “The Golden Age” is that Saturn is actually the color gold (look up actual color photos of Saturn) and Saturn’s upper atmosphere would have been visible to the naked eye on the Ancient Earth in the past times. Also, all stars can produce gold. The ancient solar system had more glowing dwarf stars whose gold and silver was able to reach Earth’s surface. Tracy Twyman, in many of her writings, connects the Black Sun with not only Cain but also Saturn himself. In Tracy Twyman’s article “Regnum in Potentia, Part 2: Fishing for Men.”[18]

The description of the Wonderland casino prison on this SyFy channel program from 2009 resembles remarkably a metaphor used by economist Max Keiser, starting around the same time, of the “casino gulag” to describe the global economy. In his view, everyone in the peasant class here on Earth is forced to speculate with their earnings on the stock and bond market in order to avoid losing wealth every time the government inflates the fiat currency by alchemically printing more money. Since, like a casino, the game is rigged by the banking cartel, who can front-run the market with high-frequency trading and are insured against losses with government bailouts, they keep the gambler slaves playing by hypnotizing them with the prospect of being the one-in-a-million lucky slave who gets to win the jackpot.

The people at the casino in Alice always win, or at least they feel like they do, and because of this, they are oblivious to the fact that they are prisoners. Towards the end, they are freed from their spell, and only when they stop playing the games do they remember the children that they have left abandoned at home. This is like the “Caucus Race” of the original Lewis Carroll story, a perfect metaphor for the modern rat race. At this event, people run around in a circle competing with each other, but with no end in mind, because “No one ever loses, and no one can ever win.”

Another obvious comparison to be made with the casino gulag is, of course, to The Matrix film series. This story is replete with references to Alice in Wonderland from the very beginning, with the white rabbit playing the role of the initiator yet again (only this time waking the sleeping victim out of his dream state instead of luring him into it). The idea of human bodies being sucked of their essence by unseen monsters, their bodies used as batteries to power the machines of an unseen world, is in fact a perfect metaphor for our economy, and does correspond to many Gnostic descriptions of the universe.

So why do the monarchs of the hidden realm fish for men using subtlety instead of force? Well, for one thing, initiation must be freely sought by the initiate, like the Apple of Wisdom proffered by the serpent in Eden. Was it the intention all along that Adam and Eve would eat the forbidden fruit, obtain the forbidden knowledge, and fall down, down, down, like Alice, into another world? It seems likely.

The other things is that, imprisoned as he is in the center of the Earth, lost eternally in a death-like slumber in the land of Nod — the land of Not! — there are not a lot of other options available to Saturn, the Lord of the Earth. Like Alice says, “When one is lost, it is best to wait for someone to find you.” Just as Cain proclaimed “Whosoever findeth me shall slay me,” Saturn passively awaits resurrection through the discovery of his tomb, as is the case with the sleeping occupants of the tombs of both Hermes and Christian Rosenkreutz.

The tomb of Venus, according to the Rosicrucian text The Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, is just like these other sacred tombs — in the center of the Earth, lit by an inner sun, etc. Guarding this tomb is a man who has been appointed this task since he accidentally stumbled on the naked body of Venus many centuries earlier. There he is, condemned to wait until someone else makes the same mistake and comes to take his place.

This like the story of Atlas, obliged to play the part of the World Tree, the Earth’s mythical central pillar or pole, upholding the weight of the Earth upon his back. There he must stay until someone else comes along that he can trick into taking his place (a role temporarily played by Hercules at one point). Likewise, Prometheus had to stay chained to Tartarus, having his liver eaten daily, until someone else agreed to be sacrificed in his stead (a role eventually played by Chiron).

On a similar note, in the New Testament, it is proclaimed that God the Father will not let his children out of Hades until his first-born, Jesus, is willingly sacrificed, and descends into Hell to take their places. There the dead are eternally eaten, digested, and eaten again by Satan. In the images of Hell that decorate European cathedrals, inspired largely by Dante’s Divine Comedy, Satan is always seen as a monster eating the damned, and his mouth is sometimes akin to the gates of Hell itself.

Furthermore, in the Grail legend, Parzival takes up the crown of the Fisher King after obtaining the kingdom’s release from the spell caused by the Dolorous Stroke. Sometimes he is sent by the king to avenge his wounding by killing the rival king who hurt him. Then somehow the hero must use the very same sword or spear to cure the Fisher King’s wound through sympathetic magic. In some versions, when this happens, the old man is finally able to die, and Parzival is revealed to be his nephew, who then takes his place as Grail king.

As I have hinted in other articles, Saturn is also connected with the ritual alchemical operation of Solve et. Coagula.[19] If Saturn-Chronos ruled over a golden age when men were gold, does the fact that Saturn in the Qabalah (some equate Saturn with Binah) is equated with lead suggest an alchemical operation, to transform the present lead of Saturn once again into gold? This connects to the Piscean Era shifting into the Age of Aquarius, which is also ruled by Saturn. This is what Zosimos’ Visions, perhaps, is referring to.

Saturnus as Sol Niger

In another article,[20] “Noah Film Review: Tubal-Cain Almost ‘Reaps All of the Wealth’” by Tracy Twyman, she reviews the film Noah by Darren Aronofsky and connects her occult research.

At the end of the film, the song “Mercy Is” by Patti Smith and the Kronos Quartet is played. The lyrics, which were also spoken at earlier points in the film (where it was used by the characters as a lullaby) are quite interesting:

“Mercy is as mercy does, wandering in the wild
The stars are eyes watching you, a breath upon a cloud
Two white doves, two white wings to carry you away
To a land in memory, a land in memory
The sky is high, the Earth is green, and cool beneath your feet
So swiftly now, beneath the bow, your father waits for thee
To wrap you in his healing arms as the night sky awaits
Two white doves, two white wings to carry you away
For mercy is the healing wind that whispers as you sleep
That whispers you to sleep”

Why do two white doves have only two wings between them? Why is “mercy” described as “wandering in the wild,” like Cain and the fallen angel Azazel were said to be?

I haven’t figured that out yet. However, I can tell you that there are many elements of the film that made me think that the scriptwriters, Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel, seem to be tapping into some of the same hidden information that I did in my seances with Cain and Baphomet, as discussed in my book Clock Shavings. In particular, these elements remind me of the story that Cain told me about the battle with his brother’s kingdom over the “throne of Eden” and possession of “the Ark.”

The Ark, in Cain’s story, was not just the boat that men used to escape the Flood. It is a larger concept, the “ONE BOX OF THINGS,” as I was once told. It already existed in Eden before the Fall. It was the treasure box that the war was fought over. It contained the greatest power in the world. With it, one could rule all, and make anything happen with its magical energies.

This war, he said, ultimately provoked the Deluge, caused the Fall of Eden, and led to Cain being imprisoned in the underworld. The battle, he says, was commemorated in the game of “Ageio,” which he says was the ancestor of modern chess. In Ageio, the “REAL POWER” is said to be in “THE SECOND SQUARE.” This is the term for the inner 36 squares of the board, the boundary of which is marked off by small crosses. This represents where the Ark is, and, I believe, the boundaries of Eden as well. You could think of the Ark as containing Eden within itself, including the Tree of Life. As I discuss in Clock Shavings (and relevant excerpts can be found here), scripture and tradition both tell us that Eden was sealed off after the Fall with a “flaming sword” and cherubim placed as guardians. I even discuss how this may be the same location as that of God’s throne, which is guarded by four cherubim.

In the film Noah, the Ark represents the same thing. This is why it was built near Methuselah’s mountain. Obviously, it is being implied in the movie that Methuselah, like his father Enoch, was initiated into the secrets of eternal life via the Tree of Life from the Garden of Eden. In the Bible, God sealed off Eden to keep men from gaining access to the Tree of Life, lest they “live forever.” Enoch is the only figure said to have been granted this privilege, and he was also the first to be given foreknowledge of the Flood.

Methuselah’s mountain is shown in the movie to be green, whereas the land around it is barren. So it has been blessed with a miraculous fertility. Methuselah, as we know from scripture, was the man said to have lived the longest — 969 years! In the film, it is implicit that his longevity and the mountain’s fertility are due to his contact with the Tree of Life. Methuselah is said to have been the “only” human to have sided with the fallen angels during their war with the Cainites. We can assume that this has something to do with why he appears to have special knowledge and access to the Tree of Life.

The part where Noah declares that outside of the Ark is nothing but “chaos” falls directly into line with my own speculation in Clock Shavings. In that book (and these relevant excerpts) I discuss my belief that the Ark was an alchemical vessel, outside of which the whole universe dissolved into chaos, literally. Nothing existed outside while they were inside. It was only when they exited the Ark that Creation began anew, spreading outward from the mount on which the Ark “landed.”

I don’t think the Ark physically went anywhere, but rather that it was built on the “Holy Mountain,” the top of which was the supernal Eden, that after the Fall became obscured and inaccessible to mankind. Methuselah’s mountain is implied in the film to be this place. The summit is invisible, and it is covered in greenery, like Eden. Plants from Eden are growing there. When the Ark lands, it is on a similar mountain, perhaps even the very same one.

Then statement that Tubal-Cain makes right before he tries to kill Noah, declaring “The Ark, the beasts, and all of your women are now mine,” is totally reminiscent to me of the key phrase “I reap all the wealth,” used in the game of Ageio, as explained to me on the Ouija board by Cain and all of the fallen kings of Eden (and as I reported in the book Clock Shavings). The “wealth” in the game is the Ark, containing all of the “Agei”: the lifeforce, the holy treasure.

In the book Aradia: The Gospel of the Witches by Charles Godfrey Leland, he quotes an Italian witchcraft ritual to conjure the warrior king of Eden, Cain. The ritual goes on to state that Cain is actually imprisoned in the sun as well.

According to Tracy Twyman in “F.A.K.E. News: Unboxing the Compass,” if the Sun were to not be replaced through magic, the universe would begin to collapse and fold up into nothingness or revert into the Abyss of Chaos. Through channeling, Tracy Twyman found out that Michael Bloomberg (yeah, you had to be there when Tracy Twyman came out with this stuff) really is doing a sun-killing ritual on the eclipse around September 30, 2017. He talked about how the old sun will die and be replaced, but nobody would know it, which is exactly what Tracy wrote in the book Genuflect. Then he said that the sun was a diamond. Then Mithras talked about “Ghent” which is in Belgium and turned out the “Superman diamond” is this thing called the “brilliant round cut diamond” which was invented by a guy in Belgium and is the most perfect way of refracting light through a stone.

And John Dee was obsessed with the London Stone and moved right there at Bucklersbury to study it. Dee wrote the Monas Hieroglyphica in Antwerp and finished it on January 25 after a two-week frenzy of channeled writing. Then published it on March 30 of that year-the same date as Genuflect. Then the Cullinan diamond, the largest in the world was discovered in South Africa on January 25, 1905, and years later, part of it was made into a brilliant-cut diamond for the royal family after the Belgian mathematician invented it in the 1920s. Belgium is the center of the world diamond trade. And there is that Ghent Altarpiece with the lamb of god bleeding into the rivers of life that seems pregnant with meaning, and the sun rays over the altar seem significant.

The brilliant round cut has 33 facets on the crown and 25 on the pavilion, for a total of 58. Facet means “face.” A head with 58 faces. The Templars had a Baphomet head they labeled “head 58.” There are 25 letters in the Sator Arepo Square, as discussed in-depth in my book The Sun Lady Unveiled. And 8 different letters used in the square, with three different magnitudes of use for each.

As Tracy points out in the book: representing three different levels of divine power. T, R, E, O, and A are used four times each, representing the five wandering planets. P and S are only used two times each. They represent the higher powers of the Sun and Moon. N is the letter in the center of the square, and it is only used once.

Tracy also stumbled into this concept of a “deck prism” and realized could be what the Masonic keystone is, and really, that could be what all the lights in heaven are. It is a stone that does just this: acting simultaneously as a deck prism and as a protective light filter. It is because it provides protection that it was represented as a “buckler” or a shield in Rothschild heraldry.

The penis has to be removed before Mithras can escape from the Womb of Tartarus. They are probably always changing reality, just like the Aztecs said. They kill the old sun and start a new age. A New Æon.

A good parallel is the story of Atlantis, which is at once described by myth-tellers as a fallen “city,” and as a representation of an entire fallen aeon. Its name derives from that of its fabled foundational king, a guy named Atlas, said to be a son of Poseidon. Now, he just happens to have the same name as the Titan from the Golden Age who was enslaved by Zeus after the Olympian revolution, thereafter, burdened with the obligation to eternally uphold the sky. This is a clue that the fallen aeon symbolized by Atlantis had its own Pillars of Heaven, represented in Plato’s tale by the two pillars of the Temple of Poseidon said to be in the city’s center. When Atlantis fell, these pillars collapsed (and who knows if one caused the other, or if there was another cause common to both events). Everything was submerged into the waters of Chaos, becoming mire, which eventually solidified and was used as the foundation for the aeon that came afterward. In my mind, the story really represents the fall of the Golden Age, when the Titans were imprisoned beneath the Earth and made to serve as the foundation of the realm above them. Then finally, the meaning of “dear prudence” as explained in her article Rebirth of Metis: The Meaning of “Dear Prudence”

Jehovah, the god of the Bible, was thought by Gnostics to merely be one of these Archons, identifiable with Jupiter, a.k.a. Jove, whom the Greeks called Zeus. His mother, the Gnostic wisdom goddess Sophia-Achamoth, was added to the seven to form the Ogdoad—the Eight. Hammer-Purgstall thought that Sophia-Achamoth was worshiped by the Knights Templar in the form of “Baphomet” or “Mete.”

This latter name, he thought, could be traced back to the Greek figure of Metis, the first bride of Zeus. She played an especially important role initiating and upholding his rule as king of the gods. Like “Sophia,” her name translated directly to “wisdom,” specifically “cunning,” “prudence” and “wise counsel.” To understand what happened to her, we must go all the way back to the “Genesis” story of Greek mythology.

Zeus was the son of Chronos, who had to castrate his father Ouranos to escape the womb of his mother, Gaia. Ouranos had deliberately prevented his children from being born, cognizant that one of them was fated to overthrow him as the king of the gods. When Chronos later engendered his own children with his wife Rhea, he became aware of a similar fate that was to come from one of these progenies. So, he devised his own way of dealing with it by swallowing them upon birth. But just as Gaia had schemed against her husband to aid her son Chronos in fulfilling his destiny (by supplying his with the castration knife), Rhea came up with a plan to save her son Zeus from ending up in his father’s stomach. In this case, she substituted the baby with a decoy in the form of a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes. Later, they say, Zeus found a way to poison his father, causing him to vomit up all the other children that had already been swallowed. Zeus and his siblings then fought their way to supremacy, overthrowing Chronos. The clever witch who conceived the poison plot was the goddess Metis, Hammer-Purgstall’s “Mete,” whom Zeus subsequently married.

As the story goes, Zeus, just like his predecessors, gained knowledge of a prophecy that if he bred with Metis, one of the children would overthrow him. Having already consummated the wedding and impregnated her, his solution was to swallow the mother before the birth even happened. He was able to do this, some say, by tricking her into turning herself into a fly, so that she was small enough to go inside his mouth. However, other depictions of the act show him eating her limb by limb at full size.

Whichever way it happened, as with the Olympian gods in the gullet of Chronos, Metis was immortal, so she remained alive inside Zeus. Eventually she gave birth to a daughter, the wise Athena. Metis worked from within Zeus’ body to hammer out a coat of armor for her daughter to wear. The hammering caused Zeus discomfort, and so he had his head cleaved open to alleviate the pressure. This allowed Athena to escape.

She went on to become an important goddess to the Greeks, associated, like her mother, with wisdom. But for some reason Metis did not escape with her daughter and remained inside Zeus. He reportedly utilized her as a source of wise counsel during his reign, and she was often depicted supporting his throne from underneath, propping it up, like a royal slave. What a raw deal, I thought as I ponder these stories again. I wonder what kept her from leaving with Athena. Was it the chains?

On the Mete coffer pictured earlier in this post, the goddess was shown holding a pair of chains. The Sun was shown attached to the top of one chain, and the Moon to the other, with the solar and lunar faces shown upside-down. These chains also appear to have been shackled to Mete’s legs. The image seemed to me to be showing her breaking the chains from her ankles while simultaneously dragging the heavenly bodies down from the sky.

Was the destruction of the Archontic order Mete’s revenge for being imprisoned and enslaved by Zeus? The Gnostics saw Sophia-Achamoth as a heroine trying to help them escape the jail of illusionary existence. Maybe the idea is that she is trapped inside here with the rest of us, so her escape is also our chance for escape.

On the “Templar artifact” that featured the candelabra being extinguished, the figure of Mete on the right is holding the chains (without the heavenly bodies included), while the horned figure of Mete on the left is holding a banner displaying Arabic writing. Hammer-Purgstall’s translation of this writing includes the phrases “Mete is exalted” and “one and seven were our race,” referring, he thought, to the Gnostic belief that Sophia-Achamoth was the grand-mother of the other seven Archons. If Mete is exalted, I thought, that means that she’s somehow escaped from inside Zeus. But how? Maybe through the rectum?

The reason I thought about this was not just because it’s the only obvious way out if one’s been swallowed. It also occurred to me because another phrase written in Arabic on Mete’s banner next to the candelabra is: “He makes return easy through the rectum.” Hammer-Purgstall hadn’t really deciphered the meaning of this, except to identify it as being related to the rumored Templar rites of sodomic pederasty, now confirmed because of their confessions to the Pope, documented in the Chinon Parchment released by the Vatican in 2007. But now, as I pondered this, I wondered if that was why the Sun and Moon were shown upside-down. Perhaps it is really Mete who is upside-down, I thought, coming out through the rear exit.

Dear Prudence, won’t you come out tonight? The Solstice is on December 21. December 25 was generally seen as the birth time of Sol Invicuts/Helios/Mithras. It is said that the next great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn is also the same date the Mayan calendar is presumed to end once you add 8 years to 2012, which is December 21, 2020. We will explore this further in the second entry of this series. Metis, aka Ops, Rhea, Opiconsivia, has a festival that week on the 25th of August as well.

Check out the Compass of the Wise image above. The seven lights are being channeled down through the stone then refracted down to the pillars beneath the earth, their graves in Tartarus, resurrecting them!

In another article by Tracy Twyman, “Made Love: Pedophile Hearts, Disposable Teens, and the Closing of the Doors of Mercy,”[22] she discusses the pedophilic, homosexual and Satanic rites of the elite and their use of alchemy in effort to storm Heaven and revolt against God Himself. After all, this is what Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals is based on—the mad revolution of Lucifer and one third of the heavenly host against the Lord.

I think that the use of the symbols I have mentioned, in the contexts which I have described, indicates that there is still an occult tradition in certain circles regarding this. There are people who think that this is the way to dethrone God. They think that the gods above are as sick as they are, and therefore they will be attracted most not by mere heterosexual encounters, but by the abnormal and perverse. As the Templar artifacts of Hammer-Purgstall’s Mysterium Baphometis Revelatum illustrate, this is why the Templars ritualized the sodomy and sacrifice of young boys. On several of the artifacts, he found a phrase encoded on them: “The Distinguished Charity of Mete Uproots the Enemy.”

The one called “Mete” is the Templars’ secret wisdom god, Baphomet. The “Distinguished Charity” could also be phrased “Peculiar–or Strange–Love.” This “Strange Love” or “Mad Love” is signified by many other things in Western occultism, roses, honey, and now, via Marilyn Manson’s use of pedophile symbolism, a spiral heart can be added to the list. The “Enemy” that it uproots is none other than the Demiurge of the Ophite Gnostics: the god and creator of this world. The idea is that ultimately you must not only fuck, but also kill and eat, the things you love in order to become one with them, as even God (they believe) does this to his own children.

As I explained in previous articles, such as thisthisthis, and this, I believe these things are all part of a process of trying to upset the balance of the “pillars” that uphold our current state of existence, allowing them to collapse so that the universe we live in might be destroyed. When the innocent body of a human child, the image of God, is defiled in rites such as this, it creates a reflexive reaction that affects the magnetic polarity of the Earth and upsets the tectonic plates beneath us.

It is hard for even the good people of this Earth to stop this process when we are all, to a greater or lesser degree, being seduced by the same type of perversions. Even if we have never done the worst of these things, we have participated gleefully in a culture that celebrates it. Perhaps this was the year that the Pope asked us to pray for God’s mercy because this was the year in which the fullness of our sins was revealed to us. I wonder if there are enough righteous people among us to earn God’s mercy, or if we shall all inevitably perish in the wages of our own sins.

The 9/11 terror attacks symbolize the toppling of the Pillars of Hercules/Atlas/Solomon and the temporary union of Heaven and Hell, as written about as early as William Blake.[23]

The connection between the Sun Lady and Isis is thoroughly discussed in my book. Isis is strongly connected with the idea of veiling and unveiling. The Wikipedia entry of the Veil of Isis has this to say on this occult concept:

Several other sources influenced the motif of the veiled Isis. One was a tradition that linked Isis with nature and the goddess ArtemisEuropean art has a long tradition of personifying nature as a motherly figure. Starting in the 16th century, this motif was influenced by the iconography of the goddess Artemis of Ephesus (also known under the name of her Roman equivalent, Diana). The Ephesian Artemis was depicted with round protuberances on her chest that may originally have been jewelry but came to be interpreted as breasts. Isis was sometimes compared with Artemis, and the Roman writer Macrobius, in the fourth century CE, wrote, “Isis is the earth or nature that is under the sun. That is why the goddess’s entire body bristles with a multitude of breasts placed close to one another [as in the case of Artemis of Ephesus], because all things are nourished by earth or by nature.” Thus, the 16th-century artists represented nature as Isis-Artemis with multiple breasts.

The “Parting of the Veil”, “Piercing of the Veil”, “Rending of the Veil” or “Lifting of the Veil” refers, in the Western mystery tradition and contemporary witchcraft, to opening the “veil” of matter, thus gaining entry to a state of spiritual awareness in which the mysteries of nature are revealed. In ceremonial magic, the Sign of the Rending of the Veil is a symbolic gesture performed by the magician with the intention of creating such an opening. It is performed starting with the arms extended forwards and hands flat against each other (either palm to palm or back to back), then spreading the hands apart with a rending motion until the arms point out to both sides and the body is in a T shape. After the working is complete, the magician will typically perform the corresponding Sign of the Closing of the Veil, which has the same movements in reverse.

Indeed, in ritual magic, specifically, in the Greater Ritual of the Pentagram as taught by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and in Thelemic circles as well.[24] In the series of books by Helena Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled[25], she writes about mankind’s cyclical relapse into barbarism and unimaginable cruelty due to his fallen nature as explained all throughout Biblical scripture—anticipating Civil War 2.0/Dark Winter Purge developing as the countdown to the global reset marches on.

For a man of science to refuse an opportunity to investigate any new phenomenon, whether it comes to him in the shape of a man from the moon, or a ghost from the Eddy homestead, is alike reprehensible.

Whether arrived at by the method of Aristotle, or that of Plato, we need not stop to inquire; but it is a fact that both the inner and outer natures of man are claimed to have been thoroughly understood by the ancient andrologists. Notwithstanding the superficial hypotheses of geologists, we are beginning to have almost daily proofs in corroboration of the assertions of those philosophers.

They divided the interminable periods of human existence on this planet into cycles, during each of which mankind gradually reached the culminating point of highest civilization and gradually relapsed into abject barbarism.

To be Continued in Part 2.


[1]Revelation claims the Beast as having to “rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” (Revelation 13:1) It was like a leopard, with feet like the feet of a bear, and had a mouth like a lion, etc. This is all done with the help of the Fourth Beast Power i.e., the United Nations. Some authors like Niki Raapana defined 2020 as the year for the rise of “Communitarianism.”

This angel stands on the earth just prior to the blowing of the seventh trumpet, whereas Jesus Christ will return to earth at the end of the Tribulation (Rev. 19:11-14), at which point the Mount of Olives will split in half, creating a new valley and freshwater source, and Christ’s kingdom will begin.

The Book of Revelation, chapter 12, tells us of a pregnant Woman Clothed with the Sun, wailing in birth pangs. It also tells us before St. Michael flung the dragon to the earth, he pursued the winged Sun Lady to devour her and her royal child of God. But in the last moment, they are snatched away to safety.

Many have speculated that this story connects to the great celestial sign pointing to a series of future calamities which are unfolding before our eyes. These stories, symbols, and archetypes point to an emerging revelation about humanity’s secret past and ultimate destiny.

We must travel back to ancient Israel, Samaria, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Babylon to find the origins of the Sun Lady. Why does the occult place special emphasis on the Book of Revelation? Do you have the heart and mind to discover the truth? Join me, Alex Rivera, for an exciting and dangerous journey into the esoteric and hidden dimensions of the Sun Lady Unveiled!

Io Saturnalia! Synchronos Returns

In my upcoming book The Sun Lady Unveiled, I discuss many connections that intertwine with Revelation 12 and the rest of the Apocalypse. There is some information that I wanted to explore but did not have the time to devote to it in the book–until now.

Warning: Controversial Research Up Ahead!

The King of Saturnalia

As the festivities and gift-giving for Saturnalia begins, the synchronicities add up to this holiday. For the Romans, Saturnalia was a time of remembrance of a former aeon or epoch of time of that being the Golden Age when ruled over by Saturn. This was commemorated in the five day period between December 25 and January 1. This was a time outside of time, and an occasion for freedom from the constraints of the world, signaled by the return of Sol Invictus. Saturnalia was celebrated with indulgence as a festival for total liberty and freedom where no authority, wars, and submission were recognized during this sacred period. This holiday also included role reversals of master and slave in banquets, gift-giving, gambling, and an appointment of a “king” of Saturnalia, as a “lord of misrule” where the appointed temporary emperor would give absurd commands to his subjects to create a state of chaos until he is ritually sacrificed in honor of the gods. These freed slaves wore a distinctive floppy cap at Saturnalia known as a pileus or cap of liberty, which is where Santa’s hat comes from. The custom of slaves and masters swapping places made the pileus the customary hat-wear during the Saturnalia festivities. The rejoicing of Saturnalia ended between December 23 and January 1. Over at Antiquitatem, the author tells us more about this festival:

In many cultures the birth of the New Year is associated with the birth of a divine child, with the birth of a sun god. Moreover, the Roman calendar fixed the dates of the numerous religious festivals of the inhabitants of Latium in honor of their gods. In December, they celebrated several parties which are reflected in the current calendar precisely in our Christmas party.

In fact, during the Roman Empire three parties were held in December and they were simultaneous in some of the seven days when they were celebrated: the Saturnalia, the Opalia and Sigillaria. The “sigillaria” are so called from sigilla, or oscilla, small ceramic figures. At this party, trading posts with ceramic figures to give children away as toys were mounted like a fashion market.

These small clay images are memories of ancient sacrificial rituals in which the victim was replaced by the clay figurine. In these Roman celebrations thus we find different elements of our current Christmas and Carnival.

In late December, they especially celebrated the “Saturnalia”, the feast of Saturn, god to whom they attributed the introduction of agriculture and civilized life. Saturn is one of the ancient gods of Latium and his worship and celebration seems to have fallen and reborn several times during the Latin history.

Saturnalia’s connection with Christianity is also covered in the same article.

In the early centuries of Christianity, the birth of Jesus and his baptism took place on the 6th of January, Epiphany Day (from the Greek επιφάνεια which means: “manifestation, apparition”) and it is still held on that date in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

In the West the sixth day of January we celebrate the curious feast of “The three Wise Men”, who according to Saint Matthew’s gospel came to offer their gifts to the baby Jesus, who had just been born in Judea. To remember and imitate it, toys and many other kinds of presents are given to children on the 6th of January in some countries like Spain.

The first written reference to Epiphany as a Christian feast appears in the year 361 in Ammianus Marcellinus, XXI, 2.5:

“And in order temporarily to conceal this (that he had renounced Christianity), on the day of the festival which the Christians celebrate in the month of January and call the Epiphany, he went to their church, and departed after offering a prayer to their deity in the usual manner.”

(Ammianus Marcellinus, Rerum Gestarum John C. Rolfe, Ph.D., Litt.D., Ed.)

In its Latin version:

“Et ut haec interim celarentur, feriarum die, quem celebrantes mense Ianuario Christiani Epiphania dictitant, progressus in eorum ecclesiam, sollemniter numine orato discessit.

And Epiphanius of Salamis also concretes in his Panarion, LI, 27, 4 that the birth of Christ was on January 6th:

(…) the Epiphany of the Lord, January 5th, at the dawn of January 6th, and the eleventh day of the Egyptian month Tybi.

Indeed, Jesus was a demigod born of a virgin who was worshiped as a divine child by Zoroastrian astrologers who offered him gold and incense. His birth is celebrated during the winter solstice on the very same date that Saturnalia and Solis Invicti was observed on the Roman calendar. Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected during the vernal equinox. He had 12 disciples in accordance with the 12 zodiacal signs. He had 72 disciples representing the 72 classical nations. His ministry lasted 3 and a half years (7 divided by two).

For the Neo-Platonic philosopher Porphyry, Saturnalia represented the liberation of souls to be absorbed into the Good from the slavery of matter and Fate, as he reveals in On The Cave of Nymphs. Porphyry claimed that Mithras is actually the Demiurge and “lord of generation” much like Saturn is considered the same by the Peratic Gnostics as Hippolytus claims.

 For the Romans celebrate their Saturnalia when the Sun is in Capricorn, and during this festivity, slaves wear the shoes of those that are free, and all things are distributed among them in common; the legislator obscurely signifying by this ceremony that through this gate of the heavens, those who are now born slaves will be liberated through the Saturnian festival, and the house attributed to Saturn, i.e., Capricorn, when they live again and return to the fountain of life. Since, however, the path from Capricorn is adapted to ascent, hence the Romans denominate that month in which the Sun, turning from Capricorn to the east, directs his course to the north, Januanus, or January, from janua, a gate. But with the Egyptians, the beginning of the year is not Aquarius, as with the Romans, but Cancer. For the star Sothis, which the Greeks call the Dog, is near to Cancer.

And the rising of Sothis is the new moon with them, this being the principle of generation to the world. On this account, the gates of the Homeric cavern are not dedicated to the east and west, nor to the equinoctial signs, Aries and Libra, but to the north and south, and to those celestial signs which towards the south are most southerly, and, towards the north are most northerly; because this cave was sacred to souis and aquatic nymphs. But these places are adapted to souls descending into generation, and afterwards separating themselves from it. Hence, a place near to the equinoctial circle was assigned to Mithra as an appropriate seat. And on this account he bears the sword of Aries, which is a martial sign. He is likewise carried in the Bull, which is the sign of Venus. For Mithra. as well as the Bull, is the Demiurgus and lord of generation (note 13).

In the Christian historian and Theologian Sextus Julius Africanus’ Narrative of Events Happening in Persia on the Birth of Christ, it relates vaguely to the journey of the Zoroastrian Magi from the East. Starting in a temple to Juno in Persia built by King Cyrus, it includes an account of arguing statues, a prophecy about a king of the Jews, the pagan god Dionysus, and a trip to Jerusalem to visit the infant Jesus and Mary. The descriptions of Mary and her son Jesus (as the queen of heaven and Jupiter), however, are far more interesting, however, since they appear to be more pagan than Christian.

As we look at the Talmudic writings of the Avodah Zarah 8a, it tells us that Saturnalia was actually Jewish in its origin (depending on your viewpoint). It also has a very negative view towards Christianity and Christians, much like the rest of the Babylonian Talmud. It tells us that Adam thought that since the days were becoming shorter, his sin in the Garden is what caused creation to return back to a state of chaos and darkness.

With regard to the dates of these festivals, the Sages taught: When Adam the first man saw that the day was progressively diminishing, as the days become shorter from the autumnal equinox until the winter solstice, he did not yet know that this is a normal phenomenon, and therefore he said: Woe is me; perhaps because I sinned the world is becoming dark around me and will ultimately return to the primordial state of chaos and disorder. And this is the death that was sentenced upon me from Heaven, as it is written: “And to dust shall you return” (Genesis 3:19). He arose and spent eight days in fasting and in prayer.

Once he saw that the season of Tevet, i.e., the winter solstice, had arrived, and saw that the day was progressively lengthening after the solstice, he said: Clearly, the days become shorter and then longer, and this is the order of the world. He went and observed a festival for eight days. Upon the next year, he observed both these eight days on which he had fasted on the previous year, and these eight days of his celebration, as days of festivities. He, Adam, established these festivals for the sake of Heaven, but they, the gentiles of later generations, established them for the sake of idol worship.

In Timothy Chilman’s The Christmas Conspiracy, he tells us more about this festival and its connections between Mithraism and Christianity.

The Saturnalia came between the other agricultural festivals of the Consualia and the Opalia. The Consualia coincided with the opening of granaries and honored Consus, god of the granary. The Opalia honored Ops, Saturn’s wife, who was linked to the fruits of the earth and is what we now call “Mother Nature.” Other festivals around this time were Dies Juvenalis— the Coming of Age for Young Men—and Janus Day. Juventas was the god of male youth and the two-faced Janus was that of beginnings and gates. The last god commemorated was Mithras, whose religion started in Persia in the 15th century BCE. “Mitra” meant “sun” or “friend,” and Mithras was a sun god who merged with the Roman sun god Sol Invictus, himself a Syrian creation. Mithras was worshiped by the military and upper classes of Rome. The Roman Emperor claimed to be an incarnation of this god, and Mithraism eventually became the official, main religion of the confusingly polytheist Roman Empire. Mithras was born of a virgin on December 25th, the date that became Dies Natalis Solis Invicti—the Nativity of the Invincible Sun. Mithras had twelve followers, promised immortality, refrained from sexual intercourse, performed miracles, and rose again three days after dying to redeem mankind. Followers of Mithras marked his passing with a sacred meal of bread and wine: The bread represented the flesh of Mithras and the wine, his blood.

Chilman tells us more about the Lord of Misrule as well:

The general public also had a Lord of Misrule. The winter solstice marked the death and rebirth of the sun king Sol Invictus. Instead of killing a real monarch, a Lord of Misrule was appointed for Saturnalia, usually a criminal or slave. He was given royal robes and feathers or ass ears. He was honored as a true king until the end of the festival, whereupon he was killed on the altar of Saturn. The mocking (“mock-king”) of Jesus by Roman soldiers in the run-up to his crucifixion would seem to have been inspired by this.

Emancipated slaves wore a felt cap called a “pilleus,” but during the Saturnalia, everyone wore them. The ideal party had an attendance of “more than the graces” (three) but “less than the Muses” (nine).

The feet of the statue of Saturn in the Roman Forum were normally bound but were untied over Saturnalia. Punishments were suspended and wars had to wait until later. This behavior carried down to the level of individuals, who put grudges aside and did not chastise their slaves for the duration.

In the book Inconsistencies in Greek and Roman Religion, Volume 2: Transition and Reversal in Myth and Ritual by Henk Versnel, he writes that the saying “Io Saturnalia” was a greeting that a slave would say to his master, in their roles reversed, among other situations. The same author tells us more about Saturn:

A majority of scholars agree that Saturn must at some time have been a chthonic deity, somehow connected with agriculture, and more specifically with the corn harvest. According to some of them his chthonic nature involved more gloomy aspects as well: connections with death and the underworld.

Henk Versnel also correctly associates Saturn with the sower and the end of such sowing with the sickle being used for the harvest in the fall/winter months. This is very much connected to the Mithraic Sator Square in ritual magic and the Chi-Rho symbol of Orthodox Christianity–both of which connect to Saturn/Chronos (see the videos below). Saturn’s consort, Ops Consiva, also ruled over the corn harvest which typically happened in August. The Orphic version of Chronos, being the embodiment of time in pre-Socratic literature, was also depicted as a serpent with three heads–those of a man, a lion, and a bull–reminding us of the Gnostic depictions of the Demiurge along with the Biblical depictions of the tetramorphs. He and his consort Ananke (Inevitability), circled the world primal egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea, and sky, much like the Gnostic Ouroboros.

The Titan Chronos depicted as an Angipide with a bull and lion head, much like the later depictions of Behemoth, tetramorphs and the Gnostic demon Ialdabaoth.

Phanes/Eros.

This is, of course, reminiscent of the Orphic myths of the Hermaphroditic Phanes. In the Orphic cosmology, the unaging Chronos produced Aether and Chaos and made a silvery egg in the Divine Aether. It produced the Hermaphroditic god Phanes, who gave birth to the first generation of gods and is the ultimate creator of the cosmos. Pherecydes of Syros in his now lost Heptamychos (the seven recesses), around the 6th century, claimed that there were three eternal principles: Chronos, Zas (Zeus), and Cthonie (the Chthonic). The semen of Chronos was placed in recesses of matter and produced the first generation of the gods.

Chronos was also depicted in Greco-Roman mosaics as a man turning the Zodiac Wheel, much like Aion, the god of Eternal Time. Chronos, however, is usually depicted as an old man with a gray or white beard. Some of the current English words have their etymological roots in kronos/chronos such as chronology, chronometer, chronic, anachronism, and chronicle. The word synchronicity is also connected as well–hence the title. The link between Chronos and chronology will be made evident soon in another post.

Neil Hague, the artist of many covers of David Icke’s books, also has this to say on the Lord of Misrule, in his article Merry Saturnalia.

The Lord of Misrule was generally a peasant or sub-deacon appointed to be in charge of Christmas revelries, which often included drunkenness and ‘wild partying’, in the pagan tradition of Saturnalia. Sounds like every town in the UK to me? The Roman emperor Nero played the role of Saturnalia in his youth. Whereas the first emperor Augustus celebrated the ‘Golden Age of Saturn’ it was eventually lost.

Saturnalia and misrule makes a ‘mockery of a world’ in which law was determined by one man and the traditional social and political networks are reduced to the power of the emperor over his subjects. In general terms, Saturnalia was the celebration of the longing for Saturn to reign again, as in ancient times. The donkey or Ass was another symbol of misrule and ‘mockery of law and order’, ‘title and kingship’. In Ancient Egypt Seth, the enemy of Osiris (his brother) had the image of a donkey. That’s why Apuleius in his Golden Ass describes a great metamorphosis, the transformation of Lucius to a donkey and his way back – spiritual evolution towards the human being. Jesus also was said to ride into Jerusalem on a donkey.

The Lord of Misrule is placed on an Ass (or depicted as one) as a symbol of the King of Saturnalia. He rides the donkey facing backwards as a symbol of ‘inversion’ at this time of year.

In this case donkey represents sexuality, instincts, sensuality, ignorance. A red donkey was said to be one of the dangerous creatures that the soul met in its journey after death – possibly an archon of sorts? The Ass and the Lord of Misrule go together at both Saturnalia (Christmas) and Ostara (Easter).

According to the anthropologist James Frazer in his book The New Golden Bough, he says there was a darker side [and the rest] to the Saturnalia festival. In Durostorum on the Danube (modern Silistra), Roman soldiers would choose a man from among them to be the Lord of Misrule for thirty days. At the end of those thirty days, his throat was cut on the altar of Saturn. Similar origins of the British Lord of Misrule, as a ‘sacrificial king’ (a temporary king, as Frazer puts it) who was later put to death for the benefit of all, have also been recorded. See the movie The Wicker Man starring the late Lord of Misrule himself – Christopher Lee. I once stood next to Lee at a Eurostar waiting area over a decade ago and he seemed a very ‘strange’ man to me.

The sordid and sinister rituals that are hinted at in the Kubrick movie Eye’s Wide Shut also happen at Christmas. Note the Sun (Saturn) Star featuring in the Illuminati-style Elite parties early on in the film. Sex is a big part of Saturnalia and of course it plays a big part in Kubrick’s film too.

Over at the Wikipedia entry of the Lord of Misrule, it discusses the Christian Church’s response to this dark pagan tradition:

On 1 January, AD 400, the bishop Asterius of Amasea in Pontus (modern Amasya, Turkey) preached a sermon against the Feast of Calends (“this foolish and harmful delight”) that describes the role of the mock king in Late Antiquity. The New Year’s feast included children arriving at each doorstep, exchanging their gifts for reward:

This festival teaches even the little children, artless and simple, to be greedy, and accustoms them to go from house to house and to offer novel gifts, fruits covered with silver tinsel. For these they receive, in return, gifts double their value, and thus the tender minds of the young begin to be impressed with that which is commercial and sordid.

— Asterius, in “Oratio 4: Adversus Kalendarum Festum”

It contrasted with the Christian celebration held, not by chance, on the adjoining day:

We celebrate the birth of Christ, since at this time God manifested himself in the flesh. We celebrate the Feast of Lights (Epiphany), since by the forgiveness of our sins we are led forth from the dark prison of our former life into a life of light and uprightness.

— Asterius, “Oratio 4”

graffito

The idea of a “lord of misrule” during Saturnalia also reminds us of the Donkey Priest that the Church Fathers mention, including Tertullian. This ass-faced scapegoat messiah connects to Baphomet of the Oriental Templars and the redeemed Gnostic archon, Sabaoth also called the “Lord of Forces” in Gnostic scripture like Hypostasis of the Archons and On The Origin of the World. This donkey god can also be connected to Yahweh/Jehovah as Epiphanius in the Panarion (26:12:1-4), reveals when Gnostics thought that whenever the Jewish high priest would enter the Holy of Holies of the Jerusalem temple to make sacrifice, they would wear little bells so that it would give Yahweh enough time to hide his true form as a donkey god. This same Donkey Priest may also be connected to Typhon-Set of the Egyptians and Greeks, as one website explains:

Three and a half centuries before Christ, Plato expressed his opinion of evil by saying that “there is in matter a blind, refractory force, which resists the will of the Great Artificer.” This blind force, under Christian influx, was made to see and become responsible; it was transformed into Satan!

His identity with Typhon can scarcely be doubted upon reading the account in Job of his appearance with the sons of God, before the Lord. He accuses Job of a readiness to curse the Lord to his face upon sufficient provocation. So Typhon, in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, figures as the accuser. The resemblance extends even to the names, for one of Typhon’s appellations was Seth, or Seph; as Satan, in Hebrew, means an adversary. In Arabic the word is Shatana — to be adverse, to persecute, and Manetho says he had treacherously murdered Osiris and allied himself with the Shemites (the Israelites). This may possibly have originated the fable told by Plutarch, that, from the fight between Horus and Typhon, Typhon, overcome with fright at the mischief he had caused, “fled seven days on an ass, and escaping, begat the boys Ierosolumos and Ioudaios (Jerusalem and Judea).”

Referring to an invocation of Typhon-Seth, Professor Reuvens says that the Egyptians worshipped Typhon under the form of an ass; and according to him Seth “appears gradually among the Semites as the background of their religious consciousness.” The name of the ass in Coptic, AO, is a phonetic of IAO, and hence the animal became a pun-symbol. Thus Satan is a later creation, sprung from the overheated fancy of the Fathers of the Church. By some reverse of fortune, to which the gods are subjected in common with mortals, Typhon-Seth tumbled down from the eminence of the deified son of Adam Kadmon, to the degrading position of a subaltern spirit, a mythical demon—ass.

Dancing With The Devil

For the Medieval Cathars, Rex Mundi (Latin for “King of the World”) was a chaotic god of matter and the irrational world soul, closely related to the Demiurge of Plato and the Gnostics along with Satan of the New Testament. According to the Catholic heresiologist Cosmas the Priest in Discourse against the Bogomils, some Cathars and Bogomils–inspired by the earlier Manichaeans–believed that there was one God who had two sons–one being Christ and the other Lucifer. Lucifer had fashioned the phenomenal world from the elements created by the Good God and placed fallen angelic souls in material bodies. Christ, God’s other son, had come to this earth in the appearance of a man in order to teach the angelic souls how to be reunited with the good God, their creator. This view is similar to the Interrogatio Iohannis, also known as The Secret Supper and The Book of John the Evangelist, which depicts Satan as a Demiurgical figure like Yaldabaoth see in various Gnostic texts, like the Apocryphon of John. It was Satan that tempted the angels Adam and Eve and fell from Paradise and into human bodies.

The Bogomils and Cathars were said to have rejected the Roman Catholic Church and its material sacraments, along with the Old Testament but favored the New Testament as authoritative (especially the Gospel of John). They adopted a strictly ascetic lifestyle, rejected sexual intercourse, and abstained from all meat and wine. They met frequently and prayed together by using the Lord’s Prayer repeatedly much like the Jesus prayer of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and confessed their sins to one another. The Cathars may be connected to another Manichaean group with a similar name, who were the followers of Novatus and were called the Novatians, according to St. Augustine in De Haeresibus xxxviii. They set up various churches around France and surrounding countries in competition with Roman Catholicism before they were completely massacred by Rex Mundi and his agents of darkness in the Catholic Church through the Inquisition and its blood-soaked and fiery hunt to stamp out all heresy.

In the article In Search of a Missing Link: The Bogomils and Zoroastrianism by Ewa Weiling Feldthusen, the author writes how the Bogomils considered the Old Testament, much like Marcion (from many centuries earlier), as a Satanic document, channeled directly from the Devil himself.

The following extracts from Euthymius Zigabenus’ Dogmatic Panoply, whose work itself is a compilation of other accounts added to his own interrogation of a Bogomil leader Basil, who was accused of heresy by Alexius Comnenus in the eleventh century, in Constantinople, are fully comparable to both the first account, The Discourse of the Priest Cosmas Against Bogomils (tenth century, Bulgaria) and to The Secret Book (probably tenth – eleventh centuries, probably Bulgaria). On their attitude towards canonical books, Zigabenus writes:

“They reject all the books of Moses and the God who is described in them […], as being written in accordance with the plan of Satan. […] They accept and honour only seven […]; that is, the Psalter, the sixteen Prophets, the Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and the seventh book, the Acts of the Apostles together with the Epistles and the Apocalypse of John the Divine.” (Hamilton,1998:182).

The rejection of the Old Testament was a logical consequence of their assumption of Satanic origin of this scripture, although a letter from around 1045 written by Euthymius of the Periblepton monastery testified that the Bogomils read the entire Bible, and knew its passages by heart in order to act as a true Christians: “I cannot deceive a Christian otherwise than by pretending to be a monk; we call ourselves Christian and appear in every way to act as Christians do, and put forward the holy scriptures as our teaching”. (Hamilton, 1998: 146). Otherwise, the fact that the Bogomils knew the Scriptures perfectly well, and used this knowledge to convince others of the truth of their orthodoxy, which made it difficult to distinguish them from ordinary Orthodox Christians, is mentioned in several polemical scripts using often the well-known rhetorical figure – hiding the wolf under the fleece – about the deceitful Bogomils.

Not only did the Bogomils thought that the Old Testament was Satanic, but they also believed that Satan had the powers of the Demiurge and created a second heaven and a second earth, and a second human race! This sounds a lot like the Expanding Earth theory. Perhaps this is why mysterious seismic activities have been detected as of late. As mentioned earlier, they also believed that Satan and Jesus Christ were brothers as Sons of God much like how the Zurvanists and many other world religions claimed that the Most High created twin, dual gods–one good and one evil.

The Bogomils were said to believe that Lucifer was the first emanation of God, while Christ was his “younger brother.” Epiphanius (Pan. 28.16:2) also reported that the Ebionites (Jewish Christians who follow Ebion) believed in the double sonship of Christ and Satan. “But as I said, they set side by side two who have been appointed by God, one being Christ, but one the devil.” This is a radically different break from Pauline and Johannite thought which conceives of the “Son” being the “image of the invisible God,” personified as Jesus Christ as being a creator god (a demiurgical Logos figure like in Philo of Alexandria’s writings) presiding over even the angelic realm in which Satan belongs under in a subservient fashion (Colossians 1:15-16).

As concerning the Bogomil explanation of the origin of Satan, Zigabenus reported that:

“They say that the demon whom the saviour called Satan himself is also a son of God the Father, called Satanael; He came before the Son, the Word [Jesus], and is stronger, as befits the first-born. […] Satan is the steward, second to the Father, having the same form and dress as He does, and he sits at His right hand on a throne. […] He was intoxicated by this, and being carried away […] he plotted a rebellion, and having done so, he seized the opportunity to test some of the ministering powers. He said that if they wanted to lessen the load of their service, they should follow him and join him in breaking away from the Father. […] Then to the aforesaid angels who were enticed by the lightening of their burdensome services and other excessive demands, he said:’ I will place my throne upon the clouds, and I will be like unto the Most High’.(Hamilton, 1989:183).

In the subsequent chapter, Zigabenus gives an account concerning the Bogomil cosmological myth, a myth which states that Satanael was cast down from above, and that he was unable to sit upon the waters because the earth did not as yet exist. “But since he had the form and dress of God and possessed the power of the Demiurge to summon the powers which had fallen along with him and to embolden them, he said, ‘Since God made the heaven and the earth, […] I too will make a second heaven, being the second God’”. (Hamilton, 1998: 184).

Afterwards, Satan created the earth in the way described in Genesis.

One must wonder why the Bogomils and Cathars (along with their Gnostic predecessors) considered the Old Testament as the work of demons. Perhaps Thom Stark’s research and Stewart Felker on Israel’s connection with polytheism and child sacrifice could shed some light on this. After all, Moses is depicted as a horned deity (much like Dionysus/Bacchus and of course, the Devil) in Exodus and threw curses and plagues and turned Aaron’s staff into a snake and parted the Red Sea. The Israelite kings and priests practiced divination with an occult device called the Urim and the Thummim while they burned incense and cannabis to Jah. They observed the phases of the moon and the equinoxes during holidays such as Passover. The Jewish prophets made offerings to angels while Solomon was a world-renown as the magician par excellence. They sacrificed animals and even children to Jah and erected idolatrous pillars in his honor. They also observed the Chaldean and Babylonian astrological days and worshiped on the Sabbath (Saturn’s Day). The occult is very much ingrained in Judaism, especially the Kabbalah.

In Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln’s The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. pp. 46-47, writes more about the Cathars and their beliefs.

The Cathars were also dualists. All Christian thought, of course, can ultimately be seen as dualistic, insisting on a conflict between two opposing principles good and evil, spirit and flesh, higher and lower. But the Cathars carried this dichotomy much further than orthodox Catholicism was prepared to. For the Cathars, men were the swords that spirits fought with, and no one saw the hands. For them, a perpetual war was being waged throughout the whole of creation between two irreconcilable principles -light and darkness, spirit and matter, good and evil. Catholicism posits one supreme God, whose adversary, the Devil, is ultimately inferior to Him.

The Cathars, however, proclaimed the existence not of one god, but of two, with more or less comparable status. One of these gods the ‘good’ one was entirely disincarnate, a being or principle of pure spirit, unsullied by the taint of matter. He was the god of love. But love was deemed wholly incompatible with power; and material creation was a manifestation of power. Therefore, for the Cathars, material creation the world itself was intrinsically evil. All matter was intrinsically evil. The universe, in short, was the handiwork of a ‘usurper god’, the god of evil or, as the Cathars called him, “Rex Mundi’, “King of the World’. Catholicism rests on what might be called an “ethical dualism’. Evil, though issuing ultimately perhaps from the Devil, manifests itself primarily through man and his actions. In contrast, the Cathars maintained a form of “cosmological dualism’, a dualism that pervaded the whole of reality. For the Cathars, this was a basic premise, but their response to it varied from sect to sect. According to some Cathars, the purpose of man’s life on earth was to transcend matter, to renounce perpetually anything connected with the principle of power and thereby to attain union with the principle of love. According to other Cathars, man’s purpose was to reclaim and redeem matter, to spiritualise and transform it.

1 John 5:19 tells us: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” This sounds a lot like the Cathar notion of Rex Mundi. The Gospels and St. Paul also has similar things to say about Rex Mundi.

2 Corinthians 4:4: “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Matthew 4:1-10 also tells us that Rex Mundi owns the world, just as he did before the regeneration of the world as mentioned in Ezekiel 28:14 and 18 and the eventual fall of Adam and Eve:

Then Jesus was led up of the spirit into the wilderness to the tempted os the devil.

[2] And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

[3] And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

[4] But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

[5] Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

[6] And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

[7] Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

[8] Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

[9] And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

[10] Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Job 2 also tells us that Satan has unlimited access to the Earth that directly connects to the underworld.

[1]Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

[2] And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

The rest of Job 2 presents Satan as the tempter, but interestingly, he tempts with God’s foreknowledge, and, perhaps even, permission. Isaiah 14:12-15 tells us of course, got a bit too proud, and was kicked off the football team.

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

[13] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

[15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

In Ovid’s Metamorphosis, Lucifer appears as a minor deity: the god of the Morning Star. Jesus Christ is later connected to the morning star as well in Revelation 2:28. Revelation 12, of course, tells us that Michael fought and casts down the great dragon Satan and his angels to earth, in efforts to protect the Sun Lady and the Male Child, much like the Egyptian myths of Isis and Horus, and Typhon-Set. John Milton’s Paradise Lost features Satan uttering this: “To reign is worth ambition though in hell: Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.”

What is interesting is that in Revelation, the implication is that Satan has been banished to Earth, while Isaiah talks about Lucifer being banished to hell, or the pit. The implication is that Earth is hell. This is further implicated in 1 Enoch, 2 Enoch, The Ascension of Isaiah and the Gospel of Nicodemus, as well, as I explain in my upcoming book, The Sun Lady Unveiled.

One author actually links Rex Mundi with the Grail or Fisher King of the Medieval romances like Parzival/Perceval, in the article Rex Mundi: A Metatronic View of the “King of the World”.

Rex Mundi, the King of the World, is also the Bearer of the Cup of Transfiguration, in which the human being moves through stages of his own duality until he reaches a platform in which he assumes in a specific and dedicated way, the “Wound of the World.” Through this embodiment, he becomes the “Wounded King / Healer” of Grail lore, whose wound is born for the world. Through his glorious act of crucifixion and transfiguration upon the cross of this gnosis which has become his Bodhisattva vow, he heals others who touch his wounds of Light. It is then that the Wounded Healer is transformed into Rex Mundi, for he has now overcome his own creation (the world) to be exalted in the Phoenix Flame of pure Illumination. What sets him free? His becoming (with complete presence) the gnosis that all wounds are only love longing to be illumined in the heart.

The cosmic / world dynamic of Rex Mundi is an important aspect of the “Solar Mysteries”. The Solar Mysteries trace the soul’s development and evolution through the rays of the “Great Solar Cosom”, which is the center of the creative font and from which all sun-stars gain their Presence of Living Light, or what we know in our World Myth as “angelic” beings and realms (which would also include related categories such as the Jinn).

The Light Language streamings which intersect the Adam Kadmon and from whence our humanity is formed, are issued from the constellation of Orion (regardless of from what Star Tribe that particular incarnating soul may originate). Thus, Rex Mundi is very much an “Orion figure” in that he (ie, this universal dynamic) strikes the balance of the Gate of Orion in the universe.

At the Arcane Wiki, it also connects the title of “Rex Mundi” with Persian King Cyrus the Great.

Coincidentally, “King of the World” is also the title given to Cyrus the Great on the Cyrus Cylinder. The cylinder is a piece of Persian propaganda, dating back to 539 BC, which was placed sort of like a time capsule in the foundations of the temple of Marduk in Babylon. It was written in Akkadian cuneiform, not in Latin, so it doesn’t actually call him “Rex Mundi” per se, but academic tradition has none-the-less bestowed the nickname Rex Mundi upon Cyrus the Great. (Additional trivia about the cylinder: In the 1970s the Shah of Iran used the cylinder as a symbol to justify the continued monarchy in Iran, and claimed it was the world’s oldest Human Rights document. They cylinder currently rests at the British Museum in London.)

For ritual magic practitioners, Saturn is also connected with the archangel Cassiel, who is depicted as a bearded man, wearing a crown to represent that he is a prince of Heaven. He is often shown riding a dragon, and carrying the spear much like an inverted version of St. George since he is riding the beast instead of slaying it. Many hideously looking goetic demons also appear wearing crowns and jewelry as royal dukes and kings of hell in Solomonic grimoires for the magician to conjure into manifestation for practical ends. Perhaps these so-called planetary “angels” are nothing more than the fallen angels and demons, led by Lucifer himself.

In Occult Theocracy by Edith Star Miller, she writes about the god of the witches and a group of ancient devil worshipers called the “Satanians” by Epiphanius. Whether they existed or not is another matter entirely.

Margaret Alice Murray, writing in “The Witch-cult in Western Europe” establishes both the phallic and religious character of the “craft,” in her remarkable book from which we extract part of the following valuable information:

The deity worshiped by the witches was in some cases Lucifer, as the good god in opposition to Adonay, the Christian God in His character of the benefactor of humanity, and in other instances Satan, the same spirit, as the principle of Evil.

This is evident from the various references to their deity adduced in the trials of persons accused of this heresy. In both cases however, the devotees, whether of lucifer or Satan, were obliged formally to renounce Christ, the Holy Ghost and the Christian God, before embracing the Devil faith which was the logical outgrowth of the Mazdean-Manichean Dualist doctrine of the double divinity. (“Epiphanius gives an account of a sect of Heresies called Satanians.’Satan, say they, is a very great and potent person, and author of much Mischief. Why, therefore, should we not chiefly fly to him, and adore him, honor, and praise him, that for our flattering worship he may do us no harm, but pardon us as being his own servants?’ Hence they call themselves Satanians.” Bishop Lavington, The Morawians Compared and Detected, p. 170; Occult Theocrasy, p. 112)

The German Luciferian/Thelemic organization Grand Lodge Communitas Saturni or the Fraternitas Saturni, also reveres Saturn as the Demiurge and chief patron deity identified as “the principle of knowledge and awareness in full karmic self-responsibility.” The inner, secret practice of this Saturnian order, much like Aleister Crowley’s Shaitan/Satan worshiping cult being the Ordo Templi Orientis, is, of course, homosexual sex magic. This is part of many different efforts to draw down and incarnate an egregore or planetary spirit into a homunculus and usher in a new Aeon of Horus–the Crowned and Conquering Child–which is just code for the coming rule of the AntiChrist and the Beast of Revelation.

I, Pet Chronos II

In the online cartoon short-film, I, Pet Goat II, it depicts encoded subliminal messages that connect to Saturn/Chronos. In the few opening shots, there are various references to Baphomet and Satan. Vigilant Citizen has a decent breakdown of the video, as well as Point of View and There Is Nothing New Under the Sun (although none of its predictions came to pass of course). The later website reports that the pet goat in the Saturn-cube shape, dog house represents the following:

The Goat with a 666 Bar Code on his forehead “Mark of the Beast” is in a shipping box inside a fenced enclosure in Winter. The Goat symbolizes Saturn during Saturnalia in December; the Yule Goat. Saturnalia begins at the end of Ophiucus “Serpent Holder”, the 13th Zodiac sign (Nov 29-Dec 18). On the $ONE the Eagle (Symbol of Esau) carries the Serpent (Lucifer) symbolized by the Apple in the Garden of Eden.

In another scene, we see a figure called Drako (being shown on television) terrorize and siphon energy from a little boy named Ludovic with an empty, egg-shelled head. The egghead boy sees news of a dramatic stock market crash being reflected in his eyes right before a warplane bombing on a mosque. From there, missiles are launched on a city, presumingly representing America or western civilization. We also see Drako siphon off energy from a fetus growing in an egg with its serpentine form attached to a televised all-seeing eye surrounding it, much like the Orphic serpent and world/universal egg. Much later in the short film, Drako, slithers away from the egghead while the now liberated Ludovic. The Heliofant website tells us more about Drako’s role:

The Sorcerer, the unseen hand and spirit of madness seeking ever more control through trickery, lies, poisons, false-flag events, wars, and mountains of bureaucratic and legal framework to siphon off the energy of the inhabitants of the earth. He fears the light of day as he fears life itself, and operates in the shadows. His greatest power is his hold on the issuance of the currency.

The coiling serpent imagery along with the reptilian clawed hand at the beginning of the film also reminds me of the recent Satanic idol of an outstretched hand, erected in a Democratic Illinois, sponsored by the increasingly influential Temple of Satan which proliferates the rise of Satanism in popular culture and left-wing ideology. In Joseph Von Hammer-Purgstall’s Mysterium Baphometis Revelatum as Tracy Twyman reveals, we see similar figures resembling Drako and his victim.

Hammer Purgstall explains the significance of some of the above black and white images:

Regarding the dragon, it will not be irrelevant for us to say a few words. That quadruped, scaly and rough, with tail twisted back, seems in actual fact to be a crocodile rather than a dragon, and soon you will see that it makes no difference if it is called a crocodile. Since in the sculpture of the bowl (Tab. II, fig. 4) it threatens to devour the infant, and since, in the sculptures of the Templar churches the same dragon is represented as swallowing down the infant, we call it a dragon. For according to St. Epiphanius the Ophites taught that the one presiding over this world has the likeness of a dragon. By it, souls not having Gnosis are absorbed, and through its tail, [they are] poured back into this world. We will, however, find below, in the explanation by Schoengrad regarding the sculptures of the churches of the Templars, an image of such a dragon swallowing down and pouring back the infant. It is sufficient here to notice that that man who, in the relief of the second bowl, drags the infant out of the dragon’s jaw, represents a true Gnostic who, by pouring Gnosis into the infant, hinders him from being absorbed by the world.

The imagery also reminds us of Egyptian depictions of the afterlife where the initiate’s heart is weighed against a feather of Ma’at on Thoth’s Scale of Truth in the Duat. If the heart is heavier than a feather, then the initiate is devoured by the monstrous goddess, Ammit. If the heart is lighter, then the initiate is free to move on to the Egyptian paradise Auru.

“The Square and Compass of Freemasonry is an incomplete hexagram, supposedly signifying, according to Craig Heimbichner, that the Freemason is an incomplete Jew and ritually tied to obey rabbinic masters. As can be seen in the Masonic symbol above, the all-seeing eye is in the center of the square and compass, signifying The Grand Architect of the Universe, (T.G.A.O.U.T.U.). Typically, there’s only a ‘G’ in the center, however, which is said to represent, variously: the “Generative principle” (i.e., the male phallus), “Geometry”, “Gnosis” (i.e., knowledge), “God”, or the Tetragrammaton, or so called “Lost Word” or “Ineffable Name” of God, the Greek form of which is said to be IAO, the Hebrew form of which is said to be Jah, or ‘Jehovah’, which is a name that occurs seven times in the King James Bible…” http://itssinstupid.tripod.com/COMPASS6.HTM

The name of Jehovah along with the King James Version of the Bible are also important aspects of Freemasonry and its mysteries, much to the surprise of many Christians. In another scene, we see Juan “Pepito” sinking into a yellow mire of goo, an obvious reference to failed Communist states in Latin countries like Cuba and Venezuela since he is holding the hammer and sickle. Communism, Marxism, and Socialism, however, as John Paul Jones reveals, is actually the unholy spawn of Kabbalistic Freemasonry.

The hammer and sickle symbol of Communism was adopted from Grand Orient Freemasonry, according to John Daniel, author of Scarlet and the Beast. In 1877, when French Grand Orient Freemasonry declared “God is dead”, and “there is no God but humanity”, they replaced the ‘G’ that had traditionally been at the center of the Masonic Square and Compass symbol with a hammer and sickle. “Notice that the symbol forms the letter ‘G’ backwards, which is symbolic of the negation of God and is French Freemasonry’s declaration of atheism.” (John Daniel, Scarlet and the Beast, vol. II, page 45) Thus it, too, represents the inversion of Christian values, or the spirit of anti-Christ, and the number of the Beast, 666. This should not surprise us, since the communist philosophy was rehashed illuminism repackaged by a German Freemason, Qabbalist magician, and son of a Jewish Rabbi, Karl Marx.

As Pope Leo XIII pointed out in his most famous encyclical against Freemasonry, Freemasonry and communism were closely related. It’s no coincidence that Soviet communism adopted the hammer and sickle emblem; this was presumably a cryptic message to occult initiates that Kabbalistic Freemasonry spawned communism. The hammer represents the male principle (white triangle) and sickle represents the female principle (black triangle), thus making it, in the eyes of the adepts, yet another among many symbolical synonyms of Solomon’s Seal. As such it represents the process (solve et coagula, order ab chao) of the occult paradigm, as well as its alchemical purpose.

The sickle of Communism is also emblematic of Saturn. The Communist group, Antifa (who consider themselves so-called “anti-fascists”), also primarily dress in black–the color ruled over by Saturn. Their overall abusive, threatening and often violent behaviors mirror the malefic side of Saturn as well. Heliofant, the name of the company that created I, Pet Goat II, is also an obvious reference to the god Helios, who is the same as El Gabal or Elagabalus. The Church Fathers like Irenaeus and Hippolytus explicitly connect the god Helios, Sol Invicti and the Titans with the rise of AntiChrist, as I discuss in-depth in my upcoming book. Helios may also be connected, oddly enough to Yahweh! Sun worship is strongly linked with occultism/witchcraft through Medieval grimoires and human sacrifice, much like how Saturnalia is connected with the same ghastly tradition. In fact, there are many pagan and Christian historians that connect child sacrifice to Chronos/Saturn/Molech worship such as the Greek historian Plutarch reveals just as Yahweh’s punishment against the rebellious Israelites in Ezekiel 20:25-26, involves the mass sacrifices of the first-born flung into the fiery flames. Perhaps this is why the Cathars and Bogomils condemned the Old Testament and Rex Mundi despite Orthodoxy’s insistence of connecting the God of the OT and the NT as the same deity.

As indicated earlier, Saturnalia was also filled with allusions and references of human sacrifice of not only the “Lord of Misrule” but also through the sacrifice of fighting warriors in gladiator games. According to Marcobius’ Saturnalia, war with other countries, as well as other life-changing events like marriage and child-rearing were strictly forbidden during this time since it was thought that the jaws of Hades and Pluto were open during the Winter Solstice, all those who disobeyed were cursed.

…during the festival of Saturn, because his reign is believed to have been free from any tumult of war; and when the entrance to the underworld is open, this being a sacred occasion dedicated to Father Dis and Proserpine, and men deemed it better to go out to battle when the jaws of Pluto are shut. And that is why Varro writes:

“When the entrance to the underworld is open, it is as if the door of the grim, infernal deities were open. A religious ban therefore forbids us not only to engage in battle but to levy troops and march to war, to weigh anchor, and to marry a wife for the raising of children.”

Finally, in loan E Couliano’s Eros and Magic in the Renaissance, he reveals much fascinating information involving Saturn, along with the six other planetary spirits/angels in Renaissance magic and philosophy. Here is just one small snippet of the information he quotes from Marsilio Ficino’s De Amore (On Love).

Souls descend into the bodies of the Milky Way through the constellation of Cancer, enveloping themselves in a celestial and luminous veil which they put on to enter terrestrial bodies. For nature demands that the very pure soul be united with the very impure body only through the intermediary of a pure veil, which, being less pure than the soul and purer than the body, is considered by the Platonists to be a very convenient means of uniting the soul with the terrestrial body. It is due to that descent that the souls and bodies of the Planets confirm and reinforce, in our Souls and our bodies respectively, the seven original gifts bestowed upon us by God. The same function is performed by the [seven] categories of demons, intermediaries between the celestial gods and men.

The gift of contemplation is strengthened by Saturn by means of the Saturnian Demons. The power of the government and empire is strengthened by Jupiter through the ministry of the Jovian Demons; similarly, Mars through the Martians fosters the soul’s courage. The Sun, with the help of the Solar De-mons, fosters the clarity of the senses and opinions that makes divination possible; Venus, through the Venereans, incites Love. Mercury, through the Mercurials, awakens the capacity for interpretation and expression. Finally, the Moon, through the lunar demons, increases procreation. (Amore, VI, 4)

Couliano also reveals that the Saturn rules over philosophy as well as the occult.

Depending on the kind of activity to be stimulated, all the planets are equally important: Saturn has charge of higher philosophy and occultism; Jupiter of natural philosophy and politics; Mars of virile certamina; the Sun and Mercury of eloquence, music, and glory; Venus of festivities; and the Moon of nourishment (ibid., II). The influence of the planets over the parts of our body determines the kind of astrological remedies that should be applied depending on the case (ibid., VI). Pharmacology, moreover, is one of the most important branches of magic (ibid., XI, XIII, XV). To summarize all the above concisely: Res naturales atque etiam artificiosae habent virtutes a stellis occultas: per quas spiritum nostrum stellis eisdem exponunt (ibid., XII)—״Natural things as well as artificial things have occult qualities conferred upon them by the stars: through these things our spirit attracts the influence of the respective stars.”

In a future post, we will explore more different connections involving Chronos, false chronologies in history, and news on when The Sun Lady Unveiled will finally be published! Stay tuned.

Hidden Knowledge in the Grail Temple

ace_of_cups_by_kkcav-d3n597b

The Holy Grail story is familiar to many in the western world; to some it is an icon of literature and to others a source of comical amusement thanks to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It is absolutely true that the Holy Grail represents the divine knowledge gained at the end of an inward spiritual journey—knowledge that is gradually lost through the cyclical ages that Hesiod, Vedic and even Hermetic traditions speak of.

Traditionally, it is a legend commencing in late 12th century, created by French and German poets like Wolfram von Eschenbach in Parzival. The Holy Grail takes various forms: a plate or bowl containing the bread of Holy Communion for the Fisher King. It is also portrayed as a stone cast down from heaven on which the abstaining angels stood for sanctuary when Lucifer rebelled against God as mentioned in texts like Isaiah and Ezekiel. The gem was given to Adam when he lived in the Garden of Eden after the rebellion of the angels. When he and Eve were cast out, the Grail was lost to him as well. Seth, Adam’s progeny, was said to have gained re-entry into Eden and to have recovered the sacred vessel. Significantly, Seth remained in paradise for 40 years. The number 40 is itself a mystical motif; Moses wandered for 40 years in the desert, with Noah on the ark 40 days and nights, for Jesus was tempted for 40 days.

It is also a cup in which Joseph of Arimathea collected Christ’s blood on the cross. More modern interpretations include Mary Magdalene as the receptacle of Jesus’ seed as the foundation for the “Merovingian bloodline,” as the authors of Holy Blood Holy Grail have theorized. The chalice is most popular today, doubling as the same cup used by Jesus in the Last Supper. Joseph of Arimathea is said to have brought the Grail to England, which then became an important part of the Arthurian myths.

The Holy Grail myth also links to ideas of gnosis in its relationship to humanity and the world, especially the world of nature and its elements. In our upcoming book Baphomet: The Mystery of the Temple Unveiled by Tracy Twyman and Alex Rivera, we go into great explanation that the Holy Grail cup wasn’t just the vessel for the holy blood of Christ but was actually connected to the Krater of Hermes and the Ophite/Orphic Bowl of the coiled dragon-like serpent (please see our book for more details on this). It is also connected to the idol head that the Templars supposedly worshiped, being Baphomet. Author authors like Julius Evola, have argued for a non-Christian and even Hyperborean origin for the Grail legend, in his book The Mystery of the Grail, a possibility in which we will explore later in the second part of this post at a future point in time.

Julius Evola writes in the same book that there are certainly repeating patterns and archetypes that any student of Carl Jung would identify with clarity. It also ties into the mono-myth cycles of Joseph Campbell as we will see later:

When we isolate the texts that make up the Grail cycle, we find that they repeat a few essential themes, which are expressed through the symbolism of knightly figures and deeds. What we are dealing with, then, are essentially the themes of a mysterious center; of a quest and a spiritual test; of a regal succession or restoration, which sometimes assumes the character of a healing or avenging action. Percival, Gawain, Galahad, Ogier, Lancelot, and Peredur are essentially various names portraying the same human type; likewise, King Arthur, Joseph of Arimathea, Prester John, and the Fisher King are equivalent figures and variations on another theme. Also equivalent are images of various mysterious castles, islands, kingdoms, and inaccessible and adventurous lands, which in the narratives are described in a series that, on the one hand, creates a strange, surrealistic atmosphere but, on the other, often ends up becoming monotonous.

Like the authors of Holy Blood Holy Grail have identified, the “divine blood” is an important concept and is one that repeats in the Bible, in both the Old and the New Testament as we will see. Evola further writes about all the objects associated the Grail, especially that of the blood:

In the various texts, the Grail is essentially portrayed under three forms:

“1. As an immaterial, self-moving object, of an indefinite and enigmatic nature (“it was not made of wood, nor of some metal, nor of stone, horn, or bone”).

  1. As a stone-a “heavenly stone” and a “stone of light.”
  2. As a cup, bowl or tray, often of gold and sometimes adorned with precious stones.

Both in this form and in the previous one, we almost always find women carrying the Grail (another element totally extraneous to any Christian ritual, since no priests appear in it). A mixed form is that of a cup carved out of a stone (sometimes of an emerald). The Grail is sometimes qualified as “holy;’ sometimes as “rich”; “this is the richest thing that any man hath living.”l This text, like many others of the same period, uses the expression “Sangreal;’ which is susceptible to three interpretations: Holy Grail, Royal Blood, and Regal Blood.”

Jack Curtis writes in The Quest for the Holy Grail, is essentially:

“… a system of self transformation that can be reconciled with other similar systems in the Western esoteric tradition. It is a cosmological scheme that is comparable with Tarot, Kabala and Astrology. There are also hints of a connection with Alchemy. All of these systems or schemes follow a unifying principle that points to one underlying reality. The Holy Grail in its 5 Transformations, is one approach to that reality. To achieve the Grail, is to understand reality. To understand reality, is to be transformed and to be saved.”

How does any of this tie into the blood of Jesus Christ? For that answer, we must look beyond the natural and the flesh. The blood is obviously symbolic in its spiritual meaning. It is the spiritual power behind the blood of Jesus in which the believer partakes in, and is eternally saved to be allowed to enter a place that is so radically different than the manifest world—being the “Kingdom of God.”

The Holy Blood

In Jesus’ death on the cross, we read that in John 19:32-38, especially verse 34:

32 So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was crucified with Him; 33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. 36 For these things came to pass to fulfill the Scripture, “Not a bone of Him shall be [a]broken.” “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.” 38 After these things Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but a secret one for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate granted permission. So he came and took away His body.

Note the extraordinary hiatus John introduces into the narrative at this point. Clearly he wants us to note something of supreme importance: the legend is that Joseph caught some of this blood and water in the chalice used for the last supper.

Eric Wargo in The Passion of Einstein: Light, Spacetime, and the Holy Grail, rightly points out:

I think we can really see the Grail as both objects simultaneously, and that its atemporal “absurdity” is essential to the salvific nature of Christ’s blood: How could the blood shed on the Cross have gotten into the cup of the Last Supper other than by having traveled back in time? Christ’s blood is either made of tachyons (hypothetical faster-than-light particles that most physicists currently reject) or is, in effect,outside of linear Time altogether. Only if Christ’s blood is outside of Time and Cause does it make sense that the cup that once ever held it must have always held it and will keep holding it eternally—and there is just one thing known to physics that has those properties: The blood of Christ is, in effect, light.

Blood symbolism is extremely important in the Grail mythos: In the Old Testament, it is the substance of life. Jewish temple worship revolved around outpouring of blood, and sprinkling of blood via animal sacrifice. It is taken into the Holy of Holies and sprinkled on the mercy seat on Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). Blood atones for sin and makes everything holy again. It is the seat of the spirit within the body, but it is also the animated life-force, of the body. It that which contains, as it were, the soul of the body.

priest-and-holy-of-holies

Jesus, as the Heavenly Priest of Melchizedek, also wearing the breastplate of Aaron. Also known as the “Urim and Thummim.” It is clear that Jesus is the “initiator” for the “Mysteries” of God in the Heavenly Temple.

Over at Temple Secrets, Tony Badillo explains that the animal sacrifice and its sacrificial blood represented a separation between the sins and a person’s spirit/soul:

On Ezekiel 44:6, 7 the Lord rebukes “rebellious” Israel for profaning his temple by offering him food in an unacceptable manner. What is his food? According to v. 7, “the fat and the blood;” similarly in  v. 15 where only the Zadok priests may ”offer me the fat and the blood, says the Lord God”. There you have it! His “food” is blood and fat! Should we accept this literally? Yes, in the sense that blood and fat were literally offered to him. But No because he did not consume either. Why does he say this, then? Because the blood, actually poured outside into a Temple drain, symbolizes the spirit’s separation/expiation from sin; while the fat, when turned into smoke, symbolizes the spirit’s ascension to him for acceptance. God’s “food,” then, is simply the language of symbol, and it means that separation/expiation from sin (by the blood) and ascension of purified souls (the rising smoke) are the things he desires from people.

In John 6:53-56, Jesus says to his disciples:

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

Jesus implores his followers to consume his divine flesh and blood made up of of spiritual light to regenerate their own fallen meat sacks degenerated as a result of Adam and Eve’s exile from Eden and from the consumption of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Hence, the Holy Grail cup is said to contain the Christ’s saving blood of the Lamb—the remnant or leftover spiritual substance dripping from a primal trauma of a divine being, who is crucified by the rulers and authorities of the lower heavens, dies and resurrects so that his followers can follow his example, so that they might be salvaged from the sinfulness of the lower world/cosmos of the devil, which is destined to be overthrown, cast out and destroyed at the end of the apocalypse. The saved and elect are transferred into a new kingdom or reality of God while the rest who rejected the Gospel are destroyed. 

Many of the Cathars believed what the mythicist scholar Earl Doherty theorizes was the earliest form of docetic Christology: that Christ was never incarnate on earth. Most of the radical dualist Cathars believed that the whole Jesus narrative, from the beginning of his ministry to his crucifixion, occurred in heavenly world of the good god and in the astral realm of the demonic rulers.

In the Parzival romance, the impotency of the Fisher King being his maimed, never-healing state (all thanks to Klingsor’s Spear) reflects the sterility of his land. It also reflects the nature of matter itself. In the studies of pagan practices by such scholars as Sir James G. Frazer in The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion, the recurring themes of the killing of the previous high priest or king to be replaced by a new avatar (much like John the Baptist and Jesus) and the marriage of fruitfulness of this new avatar with a female deity/queen is essential to the vegetative and natural fertility and prosperity of the land. The mirroring effect between the human enactment of natural prosperity and vice versa is apparent enough in the Priest-king of the Grail, Anfortas or the Fisher King’s “Waste Land” is to appropriate this mythic pagan belief into a solid representation that the barrenness of the soul/mind and body reflects upon the surroundings/ environment and nature. This, one might say is the objective co-relative function where the emotions, experiences of the subject becomes objective reality, hence the idea that the imaginal/spirit/ideal realm controls the realm of matter and the manifest world.

It is said that the blood of Christ at Holy Communion in Catholic ritual gives new life and deifies. But that blood is wine transfigured by the descending Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. However, this ritual does seem to have strong vampiric, witchcraft cannibalistic undertones, if placed in a literal context as the Catholic Church has done for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The Cathars were infamous for being hard, uncompromising opponents of the Catholic Sacrament as well as its icons and its worship of the Virgin Mary as devilish trickery to commit idolatry. Various Gnostic groups like the Phibionites, Barbelites, Bororites, Simonians, etc. as well as the Jews (and their rituals as magic in the form of “blood libel”) were accused of human and infant sacrifice in the form of ritually consuming fetuses, in the case that women became pregnant in their infamous orgies. In these ritual orgies, semen and menses were said to be also ritually consumed as a Eucharistic sacrament to Christ as Epiphanius claims in the Panarion. All of this seems to originate in Pliney the Elder in Natural History 30.11, when he writes as a matter-of-fact, that certain magical rites of the Magi (and the Emperor Nero) involve ritually killing and eating men (e.g. cannibalism):

The Magi have certain means of evasion; for example that the gods neither obey those with freckles nor are seen by them. Was this perhaps their objection to Nero? But his body was without blemish; he was free to choose the fixed days, could easily obtain perfectly black sheep, and as for human sacrifice, he took the greatest delight in it. 

So, in other words, could the Catholic Eucharist be just a Christianized magical ritual? We certainly see Romans who viewed the Christians as simply a diabolical secret society addicted to sorcery and the conjuring of daimons, as seen in Celsus in the True Doctrine and Suetonius in Nero 16.2. All of this seems to be a precursor for the Medieval and modern gossip and rumors of witch covens and Satanic elite secret societies, like the “Illuminati” who engage in human sacrifice and Faustian pacts with demons. The drinking of wine in Dionysian rituals involved ritually imbibing the spirit of Dionysus, which is like drinking the Elixir of Life, or “being baptized in wisdom.” The wine is the blood of the earth, “fruit of the vine and work of human hands.” This wine is used as a commemoration of ritually consuming the blood of Jesus. The Gospel of John chapter 2, where Jesus transmutes water into wine certainly plays on this distinctly Dionysian idea. So the outpouring of Christ’s blood on the cross is the outpouring of his very life—the spirit of the Son of God.

communion

The Book of Hebrews (9:22-24) tells us that the blood of Jesus (and all the Old Testament sacrifices) were necessary in order to cleanse things in the heavens–the same place in which the angelic rebellion was said to have occurred as recorded in Revelation.

“And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be cleansed with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.”

Colossians 1:20 says something very similar:

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Notice how in Hebrews, it says that the tabernacle, and all its services, were “patterns of things in the heavens.” The physical objects associated with the earthly sanctuary were “figures of the true” — the “shadow of heavenly things” (Hebrews 8:5). As it follows, each physical item had its spiritual counterpart in heaven. So, as long as there was a tabernacle or temple on earth, there was a material reflection of God’s heavenly palace for mankind to see and take part in. This all sounds strangely reminiscent of certain Hermetic writings pertaining to “as above, so below.”

the-crucified-serpent-on-the-material-universe

Also, in a way, when Jesus Christ was nailed to the Cross, he was essentially nailed to a circular “Leviathan” which is the same as the Ouroboros of the Gnostic alchemists like Mary the Jewess, Zosimos and the Ophites. The atheistic German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche uses this symbolism to build his own theory of “eternal recurrence.” This is what the Gnostics called the “fall of spirit into matter.” Hence, we have various alchemical images of the crucified serpent, and perhaps even the same tempting serpent from Eden. According to the Apocryphon of John, there are a few archons which seem to have strong serpentine and dragon-like features, including Iao and Ialdabaoth, the chief archon and Gnostic parody of Jehovah. All of this seems to have a Pauline basis, in Colossians 2:13-15

…When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.…

In the Gospel of Matthew (20:20-23), we read that a mother of Zebedee was asking Jesus to have her sons sit at his right and the other at his left hand in the Kingdom of God. Jesus asks her sons if they can drink what he is going to drink and they answer in the affirmative. Here is what Jesus says as a reply:

20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. 21 “What is it you want?” he asked. She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.” 22 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?” “We can,” they answered. 23 Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.”

The Baptism of Blood and Water

In Genesis 1, the Spirit hovers over the face of the deep at the onset of creation. Water signifies the chaotic, untamed and unformed material of creation. It is the proto-element out of which all creation, the whole cosmos, including humanity, is ultimately made (Gen 1:2, 6; Ps 29:3) So crossing the waters of the great Flood, the waters of the Red Sea, the waters of the Jordan, and the waters of baptism are the recreating and renewing waters of creation. This water baptism acts like a conduit that transports the believer from one world (the old man of sin)  to another (the newness in Christ). Likewise priests must bathe in water before entering Holy of Holies of the Temple of Solomon on day of Atonement. 

Brazen_Sea_of_soloman_From_Jewish_Encyclopedia

Similarly with the Sea of Glass in Revelation 15:2, beside which those who have defeated the beast are standing, singing the song of Moses. This is a reflection of the “Molten Sea” which was a large basin in the Temple in Jerusalem made by Solomon for ablution of the priests. It is described in 1 Kings 7 and 2 Chronicles 4. It stood in the south-eastern corner of the inner court.

Water in essence is a unifying and yet all dissolving element of the earth and the cosmos. Blood and water together therefore signify the fullness of saved humanity: material body and animating soul and spirit as well as the sacrificed body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of John 3:5, we have Jesus saying to Nicodemus “you must be born of water and the Spirit.” In 1 John 5:6, it says, “This is he who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ…there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood.”

We need to pause for a moment to reflect on this: the incarnated Son of God took on the likeness of humanity upon himself, meaning that this was not his original nature: this humanity, united to the Second Person of the Trinity, is literally poured out from his side upon the cross. This body and blood is NOT the same as the body and blood of communion, although they are clearly related. The bread and wine of Holy Communion are the substance and blood of the earth, transfigured by the Spirit of God to become our spiritual food and drink as the Eucharist.

The chalice in itself is not the real Holy Grail—that is simply romantic myth. The real Holy Grail is the very ground onto which this blood and water is sprinkled upon. The earth itself received the body and soul of Christ in his death. This is the blood and water of his sacrifice, rather than the blood and body of communion, although again, clearly the two are related. The bread and wine of communion—Christ’s body and blood—rather than being consumed by us to become part of our body, performs a spiritual function, transforming us into the body of Christ. “Though we are many, we are one body because we all share in the one bread.” Thus consuming Christ’s body and blood transforms us into itself. Likewise with Christ’s blood and body out poured on the cross—it transforms the whole of creation into Christ’s body. Christ’s physical presence, although hidden, still abides throughout the very fabric of the universe. His humanity, which is our humanity, abides in creation, even today, transforming it and making it holy. In a sense, this relates to the infamous Baptism of Wisdom ritual of the Knights Templar in which we discuss in the book, at length. 

Christ’s crucifixion and the Harrowing of Hell, in effect, unseated and usurped the power and possession of the authorities, archons and their demonic possession of the world and perhaps even the “Wasteland” of the Fisher King, a reflection of the inner state of the sinner. The quest for the holy grail to heal the wounded king and to restore the land to its original, pristine, Edenic state. Many see this as related to Matthew 4:19 in which Christ said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” This reference would later become crucial to the Christian version of the Fisher King of the Arthurian Grail romances. 

As one can see, the Parzival/Arthurian Grail stories, like the story of the Temple of Solomon is simply a retelling of Genesis (as well as a intricate visual depiction of the “Divine Man” or “Son of Man”), which in itself is a reflection of the war in heaven, and the fall of the angels. The Titanomachy of the Greeks as well as Hesiod’s Works (126) also speaks of similar tales of Olympian gods struggling against the titans and their terrible giant children, which no doubt mirror the infamous Nephilim of Genesis 6 and Enochian literature. Hesiod in the same text describes these Nephilim as being Heroes of the “Silver Race,” as a gigantic, brutal and ferocious giants:

Then, a second race, far inferior Was created, of Silver, by the gods…

Being reared by their mothers.

And when they reached adolescence,

They died a painful death,

On account of their stupidity,

For they could not contain their foolish pride and refused to worship the gods above and to sacrifice to them upon the altars.

Hesiod calls them “big children” (mega nepios) and tells how, disgusted with their impiety and arrogance, Zeus decided to wipe them off with a cataclysm, burying them in Tartarus, much like how Jehovah sends a flood to wipe the giant children of the Watchers and condemns the fallen angels in the abyss-like underworld in chains. Essentially all mythologies speak of similar wars between Blacks and Whites or between Angels and Devils, Devas and Asuras, Daevas and Ahuras, the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness, Gods and Titans, etc., etc. This all seems to influence the story of Klingsor who injures the Fisher King with a spear. Klingsor also happens to be directly related with Faustus as we will see in Part 2.

Once again, we cannot ignore Tony Badillo’s thoughtful explanation of Eden with those who are baptized in the Holy Spirit being the Spirit of God, which have strong Gnostic undertones:

…in Isaiah 58:11 and Jeremiah 31:12 the people themselves are a “well watered garden,”  implying that Paradise on earth consists of an ideal relationship between God and humans. This is a key reason why the Divine spirit is not given solely or primarily for uttering profound prophecies, performing marvelous miracles, or making doomsday declarations, but for subduing the Sinful Inclination and renewing God’s “image and likeness” within each of us, and in so doing we become like a well watered garden, Genesis 2:10,  bearing good fruit for the one who did the planting. This is the true Paradise, the true Garden of Eden while we are here on earth. And that which waters one’s personal garden is the Divine spirit.

The sprinkling of his blood on the earth, prefigured in the Old Testament by the sprinkling of the blood of the sacrificial bull and goat in the Holy of Holies, has made the world the Holy of Holies, the dwelling place of God, signified by the rending of the veil in the Temple. Yet it remains hidden, invisible and unknown, until the day that the new heaven and new earth are revealed when Christ return again in glory as discussed in Matthew and Revelation. Just like the hiddenness of the glory of God, momentarily revealed in the burning bush, or on the Mount of Transfiguration. In that day we will see that “in him we live and move and have our being.” The sacrificial bull concept, however is an ancient Rome and eventually later from Mithraic sacrificial rites. The Gospel of John tells us that after the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is made manifest to the believer, and the Body of Christ.

According to the Excerpts of Theodotus, the Valentinian teacher Theodotus said that the baptism releases the believer from the clutches of passions, Fate, destiny and demonic powers that infest the lower world in which mankind finds himself exiled in.

76 As, therefore, the birth of the Saviour released us from “becoming” and from Fate, so also his baptism rescued us from fire, and his Passion rescued us from passion in order that we might in all things follow him. For he who was baptised unto God advanced toward God and has received “power to walk upon scorpions and snakes,” the evil powers. And he commands the disciples “When ye go about, preach and them that believe baptise in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” in whom we are born again, becoming higher than all the other powers.

77 Therefore baptism is called death and an end of the old life when we take leave of the evil principalities, but it is also called life according to Christ, of which he is sole Lord. But the power of the transformation of him who is baptised does not concern the body but the soul, for he who comes up [out of the water] is unchanged. From the moment when he comes up from baptism he is called a servant of God even by the unclean spirits and they now “tremble” at him whom shortly before they obsessed.

78 Until baptism, they say, Fate is real, but after it the astrologists are no longer right. But it is not only the washing that is liberating, but the knowledge of/who we were, and what we have become, where we were or where we were placed, whither we hasten, from what we are redeemed, what birth is and what rebirth.

The Foundation Stone of Fallen Angels

The holy grail also has a strong Hermetic ring to it as Tracy and I have explored in depth in our book. We point out that the word “grail” itself has been derived from crater, the Greco-Latin term for a vessel, meaning a shallow vessel or plate where sacrifices were offered to the gods in ancient Greece. We also explore in depth how the Holy Grail concept is directly tied with the Corpus Hermeticum, as well as Wolfram’s Parzival, which is in itself almost a paraphrase of the Hermetica- a collection of ancient Egyptian texts that also reflect the Gnosticizing tendencies of Alexandria, Egypt. Wolfram rewrote it to match it with thirteenth century German sensibility. The Holy Grail themes seem to greatly match with the Krater of the Hermetica which directly mirror with Parzival’s spiritual journey. In fact, as the above link quotes a book called The Krater and the Grail: Hermetic Sources of the Parzival by Henry and Renee Kahane as towards the end of Parzival, they compare a precision of knights in the Grail Castle to the universe and the Holy Grail itself to the Monad as I.M. Oderberg writes:

A procession comprising the knights and the twenty-four maidens attending the Grail entered the hall, only Repanse de Schoie being permitted by the sacred object to be its bearer. These attendants were grouped in numbers, first four, then eight, then twelve divided into two sixes. Each group carried corresponding numbers of lights. Last came the “princess” of the Grail carrying one. This sequence has baffled many commentators, but Kahane and Kahane point out the marked similarity with the Hermetica, where the groups in the same order “represent the twenty-four stations of the journey of the soul: 4 elements + 8 spheres + 12 signs of the zodiac + 1, the Monad. . . . The Grail procession, in other words, is a representation of the mystic journey of the soul towards the Monad, itself symbolized by the Grail” (op. cit., pp. 105-6).

The end of the Grail quest is the return to the source of life and rebirth into it as divinely self-conscious entities purified by involvement in earthly experiences and having also contributed to the ongoing process of cosmic evolution by refining the substance they have used. The great lesson for Parzival — for all of us because he is our prototype — was the interconnected relationship of all earth entities. The bonds of a universal brotherhood make us all kin. The suffering of one hurts all, and compassion in our heart obliges us to ask forever: What ails our brother?

What could be the most interesting aspect of this story, involves looking at the second clue of what the Holy Grail represents, provided by Wolfram in the form of “a precious stone, lapsit exillis (i.e. lapis or lapsi ex caelis) of special purity, possessing miraculous powers conferred upon it and sustained by a consecrated Host”, which is indeed the blood of Christ, with holy powers to act as the Elixir of Life. This precious stone fallen from heaven is both the emerald fallen from Lucifer’s crown.

Wolfram von Eschenbach identified the Holy Grail as a Stone of Heaven, he knew he was alluding to a Holy Grail tradition that had extended far back into the mists of time. Many traditions tell so primitive man, who experienced a physical and or emotional change just by being in the proximity to certain stones. Even the term “magic,” associated with the title of “Magus” or “magician” has its etymological roots in the force of magnets or magnetism, which plays into the idea of “greatness,” or “magnifying” one’s spirit or essential self under the light of God. Perhaps this is why Simon was called “Megas” Greek for “Great” which sounds virtually the same as “Magus.” The Persians thought of the their priests as “magos” as well.

Alchemists told of transforming a base metal into gold and a human into a god or goddess. Many texts were cataloged of the Muslim Empire by the Sufis, who added their own alchemical data before transmitting it to their students, the Knights Templar, who took the wisdom into Europe and supposedly carried in tradition through Freemasonry. Those indoctrinated were of the Holy grail Mysteries and eventually given the wisdom of the Alchemical or Philosophers Stone. Some tell of it being a platter or bowl full of precious stones. The Stone of Heaven is a Latin translation of the term Lapsit Exillus, closely related to Lapis Elixir, an appellation used by the Sufis that denoted, “Philosopher’s Stone.” Lapsit derived from “stone” and related to the Latin lapsus, meaning fallen, thus denoting “fallen stone.” Since the term Exillus is related to exillis stellis, meaning : “from the stars,” the entire moniker Lapsit Exillus literally translates as “The Stone of the Heavens” or “The Stone which came down from the Stars.”

The name Stone of Heaven can also be derived from the word Grail. The term Grail derived from the French gres or Persian gohr, both denoting a stone. Grail of Greal could also be related to the French grele, meaning hailstone, which is a “stone” from heaven. According to Arthur Edward Waite, the term Lapsit Exillus is “Exiles Stone.” This surprisingly affiliates the Stone of heaven with Heaven’s most notorious exile, Lucifer. A poem of a German heritage called, Wartburgkrieg, the “Wartburg War,” summarizes the heavenly battle between Lucifer and St. Michael, and identifies the Stone of Heaven as a large emerald that became dislodged from Lucifer’s crown and descended to Earth:

“Shall I then bring the crown

That was made by 60,000 angels?ill

Who wished to force GOD out of the Kingdom of Heaven.

See! Lucifer, there he is!

If there are master-priests,

Then you know well that I am singing the truth.

Saint Michael saw GOD’s anger, plagued by His insolence.

He took (Lucifer’s) crown from his head,

In such a way that a stone jumped out of it.

Which on Earth became Parsifal’s stone.

The stone which sprang out of it,

He found it, he who struggled for honor at such a high cost.”

Lucifer’s fall that is incorporated into this poem first popularized by the Prophet Isaiah during his harangue against the King of Babylon. When describing the decline and all of the King of Babylon, Isaiah used the metaphor of the Morning star’s “fall” or descent below the horizon at sunrise, an image subsequently became linked to Lucifer when translated into Latin was Luz-I-fer or Lucifer, the Light Bringer. Morning Star then became known as Shahar or Helel, which were the names of Venus’ dawn appearance. Thus, Lucifer is associated with both Venus and Helel, a name that evolved into Hell, Lucifer’s underworld home.

In the Book of Ezekiel, he expanded upon the meaning of Lucifer’s infamous fall. While comparing the King of Tyre with Lucifer, Ezekiel identifies Lucifer as the anointed cherub and forever-young boy who once walked in the Garden of Eden while covered in precious stones, including the emerald, and was perfect in his ways and from that day he was created until iniquity was found in him. Thus Ezekiel perpetuated the tradition of Isaiah by making  Lucifer’s fall the product of pride.

Ezekiel 28:13 tells us:

You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

Lucifer then resolves to rule in Heaven and this culminated in his expulsion from Paradise. When St. Michael and his angels fought with Lucifer/Samael over his right to rule, states John the Revelator, “that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan which deceiveth the whole world…was cast out (of heaven) into the earth, and his angels were cast with him.”

The remainder of Lucifer’s legend in the poem states that during the battle with Michael an emerald became dislodged from Lucifer’s crown and fell to Earth. This is based on Ezekiel’s description of the gems-especially the emerald-that adorned Lucifer’s regalia in the Garden of Eden. It is also influenced by the Knights Templar. But of course this predates the Templar’s by many thousand of years. Before their time the emerald had been recognized as the esteemed Stone of Venus, the “fallen star” of Lucifer.

Strangely enough, however, Lucifer does seem to embody the twin archetype we see over and over in world mythologies. In a way, Michael the archangel could also very well be his angelic twin, just as Metatron is said to have an angelic twin soul in the form of Sandalphon. Both of these angels’ lower selves exist in the forms of both Enoch and Elijah, both of which are intimately connect with Hermes Trismegistus. In Roman myths, we have Romulus and Remus, in Genesis, Cain and Abel, Ariman and Angra Manyu in Persia, the Ashvin Twins, or Mitra and Varuna in India; Zeus and Poseidon, Castor and Pollux, Apollo and Dionysus and Hercules and Atlas in Greece; Set-Typhon and Horus in Egypt, etc. In a way, Lucifer is simply a reflection of the Supreme Heavenly Father, who is the spiritual sun of Heaven.

As the story goes, a number of angels having remained neutral and inactive during the battle of Lucifer and the rebel angels against God and the faithful heavenly hosts, after Lucifer’s fall they were condemned by God to support this stone, which had dropped from Lucifer’s crown, hovering between Heaven and Earth until the hour of redemption of sinful mankind and the “Day of Judgement” at the end of the apocalypse. Then they brought it to Earth, and, formed into a holy vessel, it served for the dish out of which the Jews ate the Paschal lamb in Exodus 12 on Passover, and in which Joseph of Arimathea received the Saviour’s blood, and perhaps even the receptacle for the severed head of John the Baptist.

By uniting the two objects, being the kraters and with meteoritic stones fallen from heaven, it becomes obvious. We see ancient worship of meteorites in the Kaaba Stone of Mecca in Saudia Arabia, which is associated with the worship of Venus/Lucifer and Saturn/Chronos, the pyramids of Mexico, the vajra thunderbolt of Hinduism, etc. So the Grail is indeed the meteorite crater opened up by a falling object from the heavens. It may also refer to volcanic activity and magma, associated with the conflagration spoken by the ancients that is said to have destroyed Atlantis-Eden.

dodecahedron01

Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian philosopher and esotericist famously reimagined the grail, foundation stone as a, “dodecahedron fashioned in copper in 1913 to consecrate the building called the first Goetheanum, with twelve, pentagonal (five-sided) facets and called the “dodecahedron of man.” (Bill Trusiewicz, The Foundation Stone as The Golden Triangle, The Mystic Hammer, and The Lost Word)

Bill Trusiewiscz further asks:

Firstly, we should ask: What is a foundation stone? Also called a “cornerstone,” a foundation stone is a stone ceremoniously set in place at the start of the construction of a building. This is done to initiate certain defining principles or ideas in connection with the proposed building with the intention of consecrating it for a specific purpose. It is, if you will, a “mental” building to use modern terminology, to correspond to a physical building proposed. Students of spiritual science would likely be comfortable with the idea that the “soul and spirit” foundations of the building were being laid alongside of the sense perceptible building itself.

Indeed, the Foundation Stone concept can be found all throughout the Old Testament and in the Jewish apocrypha, especially in 2 Enoch (see my paper “The Gods of Imagination: Alchemy, Magic, and the Quintessence” found in The Gnostic 6 by Andrew Phillip Smith). It is the starting point or even the “heart” in which the world and even the whole breadth of the cosmos is founded upon. It is also the Holy of Holies, in which it becomes the “cornerstone” of the Temple of Solomon, which is just another form of the Grail Temple of Parzival. Perhaps this is where the Theosophists would claim that Shamballah of Tibet would be the “heart of the earth” and the “King of the Earth” being “Sanat Kumara,” the so-called “Lord of the Flame” came from Venus! This is undoubtedly connected to Lucifer, the equivalent of Rex Mundi of the Cathars, Melek Taus of the Yezidis, Satan “the god of this world/cosmos” to St. Paul and Ialdabaoth and his legions of archons to the Gnostics. As it follows, the foundation stone is currently owned by Lucifer on his crown, since he is essentially the “prince of the world,” as the Fourth Gospel puts it, when he fell into the depths of the sub-lunar realm after the War in Heaven.

Sacred-Topography-of-Eden-and-the-Temple

In The Creation and the Garden of Eden as Models for Temple Architecture by Jeffrey M. Bradshaw, he quotes from a not-so-easily identifiable source but it is worth quoting nonetheless:

The brightness of the Holy of Holies was the light of Day One, before the visible world had been created… Those who entered the Holy of Holies entered this place of light, beyond time and matter, which was the presence of “the King of kings and Lord of lords who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light.” This was the place of glory to which Jesus knew he would return after the crucifixion, “the glory which I had with thee before the world was made.” In the Gospel of Thomas, Christians are described as the new high priesthood who enter the light, and Jesus instructed his disciples to say to the guardians (the cherub guardians of Eden?) “We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established [itself]…

Bradshaw rightly points out that the tabernacle of Moses is an earthly attempt to recapture the Edenic state that that man once held before the fall:

Carrying this idea forward to a later epoch, Exodus 40:33 describes how Moses completed the tabernacle. The Hebrew text exactly parallels the account of how God finished creation. Genesis Rabbah comments: “It is as if, on that day [i.e., the day the tabernacle was raised in the wilderness], I actually created the world.” With this idea in mind, Hugh Nibley has famously called the temple “a scale-model of the universe.” As a complement to the view of the Creation as a model for the temple, BYU Professor Donald W. Parry has argued that the Garden of Eden can be seen as a natural “temple,” where Adam and Eve lived in God’s presence for a time, and mirroring the configuration of the heavenly temple intended as their ultimate destination.

Bradshaw concludes that the temple symbolism of Revelation also carries on this Edenic/Solomonic tradition:

Fittingly, just as the first book of the Bible, Genesis, recounts the story of Adam and Eve being cast out from the Garden, its last book, Revelation, prophesies a permanent return to Eden for the sanctified.36 In that day, the veil that separates man and the rest of fallen creation from God will be swept away, and all shall be “done in earth, as it is in heaven.”37 In the original Garden of Eden, “there was no need for a temple—because Adam and Eve enjoyed the continual presence of God”—likewise, in John’s vision “there was no temple in the Holy City, ‘for its temple is the Lord God.’”38 To reenter the Garden at that happy day is to return to the original spiritual state of immortality and innocence through forgiveness of sin, and to know the oneness that existed at the dawn of Creation, before the creative processes of division and separation began. The premortal glory of the righteous shall then be “added upon” 39 as they receive a fullness of the blessings of sanctification, “coupled with eternal glory, which glory we do not now enjoy.”

What does any of this have to do with the lore and legends of Baphomet and the Knights Templar exactly? This is a very good question that is answered thoroughly in Baphomet: The Mystery of the Temple Unveiled. The Even ha’Shettiya, also known as the “Stone of Foundation,” which currently resides within the eight-sided Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, the Holy City and center and heart of the earth as European mapmakers charted.

This is the same rock that supposedly was the same rocky site upon which Abraham was coerced into sacrificing his own son Isaac in the sight of Jehovah, to test his faith, as well as the place where Mohammed was lifted into Heaven by the archangel Gabriel. This is also the same site that the Knights Templar resided nearby when they founded modern day Jerusalem. So the Stone of Foundation for the Jews, Muslims, and the Catholic Crusaders was in fact, the Stone of Lucifer as part of the Axis Mundi or column that unites Heaven and Earth, and even the Underworld. King David, who purchased the rock of the Even ha’Shetityya from the Jebusites as the location of the Ark of the Covenant, was not overlooked by him. This sacred object primarily served as a vehicle for communication with Jehovah/Yahweh.

king-solomon-cc

King Solomon holding the Grail Temple and Royal Scepter.

David’s son, King Solomon, a famous alchemist, similarly thought that the stone’s alchemical properties as a mediator between Heaven and Earth, used the rock as a cornerstone or foundation for his famous Temple, which would draw upon the power and spirit of YHWH. We see the Testament of Solomon depicting Sabaoth as the god of Solomon, who gives him a magical ring through the archangel Michael to build the temple through the forced help of 72 goetic demon helpers. This is Sabaoth is probably the same deity as Abraxas. (This connection is fully explored further in depth in the book.)

Perhaps the pyramids of Egypt and Mexico were constructed by similar means though the use of demonic, supernatural power. Furthermore, perhaps this is what the Knights Templar were so drawn towards—the supernatural power behind the Temple of Solomon—the same power that would one day make them so rich that they would become a threat to French and Catholic nobility. It is this power that manifest itself in the form of a head of a man or even of a cat, and eventually from the Dionysian and Azazel-like goat head.

What is most fascinating as that the Freemasonic pontif Albert Pike in Morals & Dogma seems to spur and condemn the idea that the Templars also worshiped Baphomet when he writes:

“[It is absurd to suppose that men of intellect adored a monstrous idol called Baphomet, or recognized Mahomet as an inspired prophet. Their symbolism, invented ages before, to conceal what it was dangerous to avow, was of course misunderstood by those who were not adepts, and to their enemies seemed to be pantheistic. The calf of gold, made by Aaron for the Israelites, was but one of the oxen under the laver of bronze, and the Karobim on the Propitiatory, misunderstood. The symbols of the wise always become the idols of the ignorant multitude. What the Chiefs of the Order really believed and taught, is indicated to the Adepts by the hints contained in the high Degrees of Free-Masonry, and by the symbols which only the Adepts understand.

Pike is claiming that the symbolism associated with the Templars and Freemasonry is veiled and misunderstood by the masses also reflects the idea that the alchemical Philosopher’s Stone was simply a ruse created by alchemists to confuse the masses and mask their true and secret methods and sciences to create gold or something else completely. However, this doesn’t answer the general claim that a certain Templar possessed a severed idol head and turned to it to form their own Faustian pact with the spirit of Baphomet. We can gain more clarity on this subject from Sean Martin in The Knights Templar (p. 139):

Misunderstanding is almost certainly at the root of the allegation that the Templars worshipped an idol called Baphomet. Descriptions of it varied, but it was usually described as being a life-sized head, which was said to make the land fertile (as is said of the Grail). That the Templars did possess heads is without doubt. They possessed the head of St Euphemia of Chalcedon at their preceptory in Nicosia on Cyprus, and, more curiously, a silver head shaped reliquary was found after the arrests at the Paris Temple. This bore the inscription CAPUT LVIII, and inside it were parts of a woman’s skull (who was believed to have been one of the 11,000 virgins martyred at Cologne with St Ursula). The heads may have indeed been worshiped, in the way that the Celts revered the head.

The Assassins, during their initiation ceremonies, buried the initiate up to his neck in sand, leaving only the head visible, before disinterring him. Given their simulation of Saracen torture, the Templars may also have carried out this practice. A further possibility is that Baphomet, long thought to be a mistranslation of ‘Mahomet’ (the Prophet Muhammad), could well be a corruption of the Arabic word abufihamat, which means ‘Father of Understanding’, a reference to a spiritual seeker after realization or enlightenment has taken place: ‘The Baphomet is none other than the symbol of the completed man.’44 It is therefore possible that the supposed head the Templars worshipped was actually a metaphorical head. That Hugues de Payen’s shield carried three black heads suggests that certain elements within the Order – the upper echelons perhaps – were involved with esoteric disciplines learned from the Sufis from the very beginning of the Temple’s existence.

Could these “alchemical heads” be code words for a secret knowledge held by the minds of the initiated as well as literal severed heads who supposedly “prophesied”? The Templars were also said to have in their possession, ritual skulls made out of precious metals and human bone covered in gold and silver. These skulls may have been their own deceased brethren. There are testimonies taken from the Catholic inquisitions that purport of the Templars alluding to possess metallic skulls used in Templar ceremonies, especially in the legend of The Necromantic Skull Of Sidon.

Skulls tend to be used in ancestor worship and also happen to be the premiere emblem of Mexican commemoration of the Dia de los Muertos (“Day of the Dead” being a pre-Colombian tradition of ancestor worship and colonial Catholicism) and demonic deity of the drug cartels, Santa Muerte, a mixture of the Virgin Mary (who, herself is the Catholic version of Astarte and Ishtar/Lilith) and the Aztec god of death Mictlantecuhtli. The Yale Masonic secret society of the “Skull & Bones,” a Satanic club of which a string of U.S. Presidents belong to (John Kerry, the Bush family, etc.) via secret oaths and initiation rites into diabolism similar to the ones found in Templar Baphometic rites. These “Bonesmen” have their origins in the so-called “Bavarian Illuminati” who themselves come from the Jesuits, whose saints are often depicted next to skulls or holding skulls. There are paintings depicting Mary Magdalene holding a skull as well.

Georges_de_La_Tour_-_Magdalen_of_Night_Light_-_WGA12337

The famous skull and crossbones motif normally associated with pirates is often said to have originated with this skull from Sidon, but it was probably much older. This haunting motif, which we today associate with poison, was most likely a symbol related to the earlier alchemical rites of the Templar Knights. During these early rites, skulls were used representing “Caput Mortumm” or “Dead Head,” which refers to a stage in alchemy preceding creation of the “Philosophers Stone,” which is the Great Work of the alchemists, equated with spiritualized gold. This is the stage of “Nigredo” or the “blackening” in Hades/Hell. The Gnostic-Hermetist Zosimos depicts this stage in the most extreme and gruesome imagery in his alchemical work Visions.

The most important skull or head used in the rites of the Knights Templar was known within the Order as Baphomet. This most sacred of heads, which many of the Knights alluded to during their depositions preceding their French trial, may have been that of John the Baptist, whose head was acquired by the Templar’s as part of treasure they looted from Constantinople during the Fourth Crusade in the 11th century. Even stranger is the fact that this Baphomet skull could also be related to the head of Simon Magus! Be sure to check out our book for more details on all of this.

However, the idea that the Templars revered Baphomet in its Gnosticized form, seems to be a later additional detail that emerges during the French Revolution and later emphasized with the likes of Purgstall, Eliphas Levi, Aleister Crowley, etc. Whatever the case may be, it seems as though the Templar treasure is somehow tied with the symbolism of the head, the mind, as well as the Holy Grail cup which is associated with drinking the wisdom of various Hermetic and Gnostic deities and alchemists like Zosimos, as we explain in the book. Indeed, even the Holy Grail/Fisher King legends themselves have strong associations with Gnosticism, and it is this heresy that the Orthodoxy greatly desired to have stamped out of existence and absorbed into their own “universal” collective religion.

(In Part 2, we will re-examine the infamous Medieval legends of Faustus and Simon the Magician and his consort, Helena/Sophia and how it all relates to the Holy Grail legends.)

Oh! It’s Magic!

There’s been some recent controversy in various blogs over the legitimacy of occultism and magic that was mainly fueled by Miguel Conner’s article. His argument, inspired by Alan Moore’s disjointed, caustic and adjective-riddled up-the-ying-yang piece of polemic called “Fossil Angels” is that modern occultism has fallen (or conceived in to be more accurate) into the mire of Dungeons & Dragons (no disrespect to D&D players) kind of phoney baloney. This kind of occultism has fallen into rank mediocrity and bourgeois, narcissistic materialism rather than containing any truly inspired spiritual or artistic vision like say a William Blake painting.  Alan Moore defines “true magic” as writing, creating music or painting rather than attending some boring old occult lodge,  hearing them drone on and on about nonsense.

Although I certainly agree (for the most part) with his blanket assessment, I do think that “magic” reflects a certain human need to wrap a cordon of mystery and possibility through rituals or gazing into a crystal ball or reading a stack of Tarot cards. Humans are creatures imperiled by their every next breath, with every heart beat closer to death. Humans try to shake a little truth out of their stabs in the dark. “Magic” which is defined as containing supernatural powers and influence over the forces of nature and the “spirit world” reflects an innate need to control and “mastery” over one’s destiny in an uncertain, nonsensical and powerless world. The gods have abandoned us long ago to our whims and vices. They have far more important cosmic issues to attend to. They no longer hear prayers and care only to the extent that their mission of planting the seeds of potential consciousness in the soil of the world is long over.

While we do retain consciousness, the mind/body perspective still remains subjective and lacking in autonomy. There is a limit or “veil” that even our spiritual “eye salve” can reach, much like hitting a brick wall. And both modern occultism and (drifting dilettante) new age paths have muddled this spiritual vision to a great degree.

Both the ancient Neoplatonist teacher Plotinus and the author of Allogenes voice a paradoxical proclamation of learned ignorance: “If you should know him, un–know him” (Allogenes) as per the superlative Unknowable deity, the unconditional reality without form or existence. In essence, if you want to know the transcendent realm, the negation of all preconceptions and though is necessary to gain deeper levels of insight and awareness as opposed through the means of ritual magic, since it is based on form and subjective consciousness. The unmanifest God can only be comprehended by the human mind through either paradox and/or ascent vision mysticism.

“Magic” doesn’t automatically mean “Satanist” or “evil” (although the Bible certainly seems to think so!), but let’s face it: most if not all forms of “magic” isn’t about communing with God or even attaining self-knowledge. The closest thing to this kind of “high magic” would be theurgy, but even that is up for debate. Magic isn’t a spiritual practice. As one blogger put it, it’s more of a “psychic art” (as in “psyche” or “soul” of the tripartate Gnostic system of substances). It’s about many magician’s own admission of applying one’s will in the material world to produce an effect. It denotes a person with a “will” of “power” and by owning it, you own proper.

According to Aleister Crowley, any willed or intentional act whatsoever is “magick”. He says it quite literally in Book 4: “Every intentional act is a Magical act.” He even gives an example for this:

“It is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take “magical weapons”, pen, ink, and paper; I write “incantations”—these sentences—in the “magical language” ie, that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth “spirits”, such as printers, publishers, booksellers and so forth and constrain them to convey my message to those people. The composition and distribution of this book is thus an act of Magick by which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will.”

With that kind of definition, that could mean almost anything. So I took a magical shit? A magical piss? There’s a certain amount of fetishizing behind the word which becomes so malleable that it loses nearly all its meaning. Kind of like the over and sloppily applied word “Gnostic”. Anything that sounds remotely mystical is often erroneously considered “Gnostic”.

The one thing I don’t agree with Conner’s article however is the notion that occultism is dead as the title of his article obviously indicates. Sure it usually takes the form of narcissistic masturbatory egotism. It’s mostly verbose flowery language to describe something that exists beyond the rational and easily explainable. Regardless of what someone may say for or against, the occult groups remain and still do their own thing. Whether they are increasing or decreasing is a whole other debate entirely.

That all being said, I’m not about to dictate what a person should or shouldn’t do. The important part is to take philosophy, religion or even “magic” and make it your own way and not rely on someone else’s style or technique. Discovering your own voice is what really matters in the long run.

And on that note these meme images are pretty kick-ass.
