New Age Critique
The etymology of the word 'dragon' comes to us via the Latin but is
derived ultimately, it is thought, from the Greek, though the origin
of the word and its definition is probably much older. The word in
Greek is drakon (drakon); as in edrakon (edrakon), an aorist of
derkesthai (derkesthai), which means 'to see clearly'.
A dragon was one who saw clearly, and clarity of vision engendered
and was always classically associated with wisdom, which itself
produced power. Today we say that knowledge is power, so nothing has
changed in that respect, except that it is actually wisdom - the
ability to predict or intuit and synthesize knowledge - a
prerequisite of druidic or fairy neuro-physiology, that actually
affords the greatest power of all.
In a progression of logic that naturally suggests itself, we are
therefore entering in upon the linguistic territory of the seer, the
witch and the magus, with whom the foregoing qualities have always
been closely identified, a state of affairs with which etymologists
From there, in the Gaelic realms, we encounter the 'Merlins', a name
which, like 'Dragon', literally means 'seer', and who furthermore,
were of a class of druid priests or 'philosophus' or 'magi', as they
were also known in classical times. Anciently the foregoing regional
epithets were all attributed to one royal, priestly tribe originally
known in Indo-European as the Arya: The 'race of the wise ones', a
caste who were described in Latin as the 'nobilis', a name which
originated from the Greek root gno (gno) meaning 'to know'.
Similarly the word king is derived from the related Gothic word
kuningzam, meaning both "knowing one" and "scion of the noble,
(meaning wise), race". In addition we have the associated word
siddhis, meaning 'the powers' and from this word or vice versa, was
derived the tribal name 'the Scythians' the 'Arya-Sidhe' or 'Sidheans'.
The 'siddhis' were a range of psychic or paranormal phenomena which
manifested themselves as the attributes of those Tantric priests in
Eurasia who had attained 'samadhi' or 'enlightenment'.
These people, coterminously the Aryans or Scythians, who are thought
to have developed Tantra in Sumeria, were known as the legendary
Tuadha d'Anu (tribe of Anu and by a traditional, widely known
derivation - "people of the stars") or daouine sidhe (meaning people
of the powers) in the Gaelic countries. They were the 'wise ones',
the elves or fairies; and from this we can conclude that by correct
definition, a Dragon was originally, (by blood descent from the race
of the wise), an overlord, an archdruid or bruidhina,
magus and a
seer, an elven goddess-queen or god-king.
Such are not to be confused with the warrior kings or tinker
dynasties installed by the Roman Church over the last 1500 years,
nor with any modern royal family. The druidhe were kings above
The dragon or fairy gene was very rare and true
dragon families were rarer still. Persecutions excepted, if this
were not the case anyway, then perhaps many fairy stories of the
popular genre which originated from outside the dragon culture would
never have taken hold, because the reality would have been
constantly staring people in the face.
Traditionally and consistently, the symbol of both wisdom (Sophia)
and healing was the serpent or, as it was also known, the dragon. In
keeping with this the kings and queens of pre-catholic history were
noted for their healing capabilities and as such, in Judaic
mythology, were called, perhaps after the archangel Raphael, the
Repha'im or Rapha'Elohim; the healing gods of
the Anunnaki. Raphael
was the Prince who appeared to Adam in Eden according to
No mention of this is made in Genesis and one suspects that of the
two entities that did appear to Adam, Enlil and Enki,
or if you like: God and the Catholic Satan. Raphael - the
Angel of the Rising
Sun - must have been Enki who gave Kingship to man in the form of
the Elven Overlords and after whom, by various related epithets;
including 'The Repha'im', the Elven Kings are known.
Authorities believe that these people were identical to both
Nephilim and the Anakim of Idumea and
Canaan. In early heraldry,
derived from ancient sources, the dragon was depicted as a serpent
with the wings of a swan. This image was also given the wings of a
The dragon nevertheless was humanoid and so the symbolism in the
dragon glyph ought rather be interpreted to substantiate the
etymology of the word itself. The serpent stands for the wisdom and
healing powers of the sacred king or queen whose regalia often
consisted of serpent-like scale armour and whose consciousness soars
above that of humanity as if carried on wings, which were symbolized
by shamanic swan's feather cloaks.
The nocturnal habits of the dragon people, typically those of the
Cimmerian Scythians, were noted by their contemporaries and the
swan's wings of the dragon glyph attributed to them were either
interchangeable with, or substituted by, those of the bat to signify
One of their earlier names - Anunnaki - means "heaven meets earth".
Lots of fanciful notions have been put forward to suggest that the
Anunnaki were from outer space, but a far simpler way of
understanding the name is to ask a simple question: "when do the
heavens - the An or Stars - meet the Earth?". The answer is of
course - "at night time".
When considering the nature of the elves or the Anunnaki, rather
than believing they came from a different planet, it might be worth
considering that they occupied a different dimension. If this sounds
equally as fanciful and implausible, consider this. A multitude of
different animal species on this planet can be seen and touched.
However, because of their physiology and chemical make-up were
different and these differences in synaptic connections and hormone
levels altered their perceptions of their universe, these species
actually lived in another dimension and at a higher frequency, where
time and the environment for them were totally different to the way
humans perceived them. The level to which the fairies experienced
life was far deeper than the level to which humans experienced it.
In real terms the fairies inhabited an entirely alien world but
occupied the same planet. In this sense they were from a different
dimension, characterized and regulated by their body chemistry which
enabled them to see more in the environment than humans could. In
this they were no more remarkable than any other non-human species
we are able to study today.
Flies, Sharks, Dolphins and a host of other lifeforms have
attributes and abilities humans do not possess and the way in which
they interact with the planet is completely alien to the way in
which humans do. For a fly time is completely different and for a
Shark, any warm blooded creature glows with a blue, electro-chemical
haze or aura, proving to some extent, the veracity of the theory of
The Fairies were dragons and this means that they 'saw clearly',
they saw subtler emanations than man could. In order to be able to
do this the fairy would have to have their senses tuned into a
higher frequency than man, meaning that the fairies, perforce, were
tuned to a higher frequency of perception and activity generally.
In cybernetic terms, any system that is faster and consequently
higher than a given base is called a nautonnier or
navigator and in
cybernetics these systems are set over and in control of the slower
functional operations within any given mechanical or organic
If we transpose this theory onto human society we get leaders and
followers, where the leaders are supposed to be able to function at
a faster rate than the followers and thereby anticipate any given
direction the system might go in and plan sensible strategies that
the system might adopt for its well-being.
Today this is a joke and incompetent, self-seeking, middle class
idiots more often find themselves voted into control of vast social
systems which, once upon a time, no-one would trust to anyone but
In the past therefore, because the Fairies were, for
physiologically bred and exhaustively trained to operate at a higher
level than men, humans often invited them to become social
navigators or nautonniers. The Sumerian word for a navigator is a
GALL, which sounds a bit like a Gael,
doesn't it? The language of the
western Royal Scythians was Gaelic and the
Royal Scythians were the
fairies, the Elves: The Dragons.
The dragon's fiery breath symbolized the pneuma, the spirit of the
divine, which coalesced into the Torah or cosmic law that the
queens and kings delivered as their pronouncements in the affairs of
man. Thus the image of the dragon of myth and legend is complete, as
a set of symbolic attributes belonging to an ancient magical race of praeter-natural beings, the
vampyr overlords or fairy overkings.
Though humanoid, Dragons were not Homo Sapiens but from the far
older elven race sometimes called in literature - the
Elda or Eldar,
probably suggested or derived from the name of an ancient queen and
her ancient, former habitation in Mesopotamia and possibly intended,
in its attribution as a simile for Elder perhaps, to imply some form
of racial primogeniture.
Reflected upon within the context of early Sumerian historical
records, such a synonym would indeed seem to be apposite, inasmuch
as this ancient and mysterious people claimed that the Dragons, with
Queen Hawah Elda's assistance, made mankind.
From the OED (Oxford
English Dictionary) we learn that the prefix homo (from whence comes
'man'), is derived from the same root as the prefix in homo-genous,
and it means 'common', 'the same' or 'the same as', 'average',
The word sapiens is itself derived from the Latin word 'sapienta'
meaning understanding - but it was a word which was used in a solely
pejorative and derogatory context - from as far back as the Middle
English period - explicitly in the sense of artful, deceitful,
contrived or would-be wisdom; meaning sophistry or low cunning and
hypocrisy. From sapienta we derive the slang derogative
has been used throughout the English-speaking world to taunt idiots
Hereto, in contemporary currency the phrase homo sapiens therefore,
simply defines a common, undistinguished hominid species, the
members of which ( rather like sheep), within a limited field of
conscious responses and conditioned reflexes, all act in the same
manner and think the same self-deluding thoughts, whilst relating to
each other through a veil of deception.
Taken in relation to what man has done to the planet and to his
fellow creatures, the author doesn't think that this is an
unwarranted or unsubstantiable attack, but a justifiable
observation. Man aptly named himself: homo = mediocre + sapiens =
As such, applying the correct, literal definition within the Oxford
English Dictionary, the entire membership of that species are all as
mediocre and erroneous in their behavior, perceptions and
understanding as each other. Because, continuing with this accepted
definition: "homo sapiens", it says, "is the genus of which man is
the only species".
Therefore man is defined currently by the Oxford English Dictionary,
the recognized authority on, and arbiter of the English language, as
being uniquely, thoroughly stupid and dim witted, and his species
description has incorporated within it a clear indication that this
condition is genetically inherited. Nurture seems unable to
ameliorate what nature has here ordained.
Here the idealist might argue that a eugenic solution, mediated
through genetic engineering could produce a more passive, thoughtful
population by weeding out the stupid gene and replacing it with
something that would make us all less wasteful, aggressive and
Take a look around you, who runs the planet? That's right - the
multi-national corporations, and what is their raison d'etre? To
force people to produce rubbish for the same people to buy. Where
does the funding come from for scientific research grants? From the
multi-national corporations or via governments who are subservient
to, because they are paid for by, those same corporations. Would
either support any form of research that would make people refuse to
fight their wars for them or consume less of their pointless crap?
In any case, at present, genetic engineering for the most part is
becoming yet another manifestation of human megalomania within a
cosmos or world socio-economic system that owes its very existence
to the continued cultivation and promotion by the corporate elites,
of mass psychosis on an international scale.
This, as they are wont to say, is a sad indictment upon the entire
human race, but nevertheless the evidence speaks for itself and
after several millennia of wars and destruction, culminating in the
present series of precipitative social and ecological disasters, it
doesn't seem that homo sapiens will ever be anything other than what
they are and that furthermore, this is a profitable, and therefore a
protected and encouraged, irremediable and irreversible, genetic
In contrast the Dragons or Draco Sentiens, according to the most
ancient definitions, were, once upon a time, long long ago,
genetically "clear sighted" members of the elder race, the "race of
It therefore follows in conclusion that, because of the
neurophysiological, and consequently the cognitive, cogitative and
psychological differences between the two, neither were of the same
species as the other and the ancient Sumerian texts would uphold
this view without question.
Grail Code - What Grail Code? A personal view
People enter relationships that serve their own interests or the
interests of the 'extended self' which, beyond the immediate level
of everyday materialism, they externalize as pecuniary
acquisitiveness, as political ambition or an abstracted spiritual
ideal, as manifestations of or tools to service that same
materialistic greed, but operating on a sublimated level of personal
and social deceit. In the end therefore, all human endeavor is self
centered, and all is 'egotism'.
Beyond this there may be something of greater merit dwelling in the
depths of the silence beyond their own chattering minds and feeble
aspirations, but because such dwells in stillness and silence it
cannot be either comprehended with, or eulogized about, by an
unquiet mind and it therefore transcends the limits of petty human
However 'bigger' any greater, non-personalized aim might be, it is
still serving itself and its own interests through the drives it
instills in them. The universe eats the universe as a manifestation
of a larger cosmic egotism which cares nothing for the 'rights' of
A greater merit then may be the compassion life has for itself but
even so, ultimately this does not necessarily serve the interests of
Man, who is merely one species amongst many, one component of
consciousness with which life perceives itself through those
interactive experiences that cause each other, but which are no
respecters of persons or of any individually or collectively
projected egotism which we might define as a divine, consciously
This, in actuality and on mans' part, is merely a desire that the
universe be nice to them and fulfill all their greedy ambitions and
assuage all their fears for their well-being and continuity. The
Universe has no contract with humanity and therefore no contract men
have with each other has any valid basis in reality either.
In times past they would speak of the 'Covenant with God', now
certain individuals pontificate vacuously about 'The Grail Code'.
Both - then and now - can only be seen as fraudulent contracts which
no party can uphold because neither party can fulfill the obligations
or restrict themselves to the limits implied within them, because
abiding, externalized, imposed contracts are not a part of natural
Individuals put up with eachother's peccadilloes if they have
something to contribute to each other which is valued. Their degree
of longsuffering is directly proportional to the value they place on
the ethos or image they each project, or on each other's input or
their potential or actual services.
In the particular instance being referred to in this essay the
'Grail Code' of service to others is prominent in its absence
because the relationships people have are driven by a financial
imperative, making the statements of collective high idealism just
that, a hollow mockery of something that died out long ago. The
Grail Code today is just another clichéd phrase, a tatty piece of
New Age verbosity aimed at selling contrived, pseudo-intellectual,
academically amateur jingoism to frightened, greedy idiots.
Religious coercion is now replaced by these kinds of jargonistic
phrases, which are geared towards promoting limp, new age
philosophies that, like religion, are engineered to appeal to or
coerce (for selfish motives) a higher sense in man that simply
doesn't exist. For the Grail Code to work as it was envisaged or
understood, everyone subscribing to it now would have to think with
one mind and not consider individual gain before the welfare of the
group. This is simply not happening nor will it.
Such a level of co-operation could only be achieved in the ability
of all the subscribers to the 'code' being able to communicate at
the same level of understanding and with the same degree of
experiential intensity and the same semeiological and semantic
inflection at the same time. Service to others without thought of
self requires others to serve you with equal dedication and devotion
if you and the group - collectively - are to survive.
The Grail Code in the distant past was not a contract nor an ideal.
It was the manifestation of a type of behavior which was subsequent
to a particular form of consciousness.
Hierogamy or enthea between the Dragon Prince and the
resulted in the creation of an extended mind, the development of an
interaction where the bounds of individual consciousness were broken
and two people joined together with an intensity that created a
being greater than the sum of its parts. In alchemy this was called
the breath of Ravens from which resulted the birth of the
Phoenix, conceived in the death of Dragons and born in the ascent of
the white star. The way these two individuals treated each other was
called True or Courtly Love.
If this phenomena happened on a wider scale within the genome, then
it, along with other universal phenomena, was a part of the Web of Wyrd and its child was
True Love manifest collectively, which was
called the Grail Code. Jesus called it "the Law of God written on
the hearts of men in tongues of fire". Genetic righteousness.
The Grail Code was the behavioral manifestation of an attuned group
of empathic individuals working towards the common good of that
group. This required a 'Hive Mind' - a collective consciousness - or
at least a heightened capacity towards sensitivity and the
anticipation of the needs of all within the genome, that transcended
common consciousness, being therefore a manifestation of the
outworking of the Siddhis within the web of interrelated and
interconnected points of consciousness that are manifest throughout
all levels of life.
The Grail Code therefore, was a set of behavioral patterns that
arose from within as a response to a particular endocrinologically
mediated, psychological condition that has detachment as its
hallmark. It was not imposed from without by people with vested
interests who were attempting to manipulate circumstance by
manipulating other peoples appetites or consciences for their own
ends or for the ends of any other disassociated group of
individuals' co-operative self interests.
Without the 'Hive Mind' (symbolized in the
Dragon Dynasty by the
Merovingian Bee, the Phoenician 'House of the Gods' and the
hexagonal figure of the Tree of Life of the Kabala) the
is a meaningless set of unattainable social aspirations which can
only serve nowadays to fill the gaping chasm left by people's apathy
towards more traditional forms of judicial, spiritual or moral
In the hands of New Age style authors and their wannabee audiences
the Grail Code becomes just another form of legalism.
brain physiology required to understand its implications, those who
cannot share in the collective consciousness of the group (whose
very being was founded on co-operation and whose mental condition
created the Grail Code as a naturally occurring phenomenon) make a
mockery of all the Code stands for.
To these - the people left outside the group who don't have the
wiring or chemistry to participate and understand the collective
mind - the Grail Code is just another mishmash of rules which,
however prettily and romantically packaged, will inevitably be
broken and which therefore are no better or worse than any other
meaningless set of regulations.
The universe has features which are prime constants, the behavior
of materials is one example, which we call the 'laws of physics'.
These we can term truths, because they don't vary under a given
range of circumstances, even down at the sub atomic level, the
weirdness is still a constant, inasmuch as it is constantly weird.
Without these prime constants the universe would cease to exist.
The Grail Code, as a worthy set of regulations or aspirations for
the governance of people's behavior in relationship to each other
is, quite frankly, an idealistic load of nonsense. It isn't that the
Grail Code is a fantasy or a lie, it is simply a fact that it was
and still is misapplied to the wrong people.
Relatively and contextually speaking the Grail Code is not a truth,
because it is not a constant, and it cannot be applied to regulate
human behavior in human societies and we know this because it
caused, in part, the manifestation of a set of social conditions
which were required in order to allow to occur the 1000 year
genocide which is referred to in the Family as the Elven Holocaust,
which resulted ultimately in the abandonment of the Grail Code
What was the big mistake the Family made? They did unto others as
they would have done unto themselves. In other words they used the
transcendently inspired Grail Code they anciently applied to their
own mystical race to order societies that were founded not upon
transcendent perception, but upon animal instincts, where
irredeemably materialistic individuals co-operated merely for
personal gain and in constantly shifting temporary alliances that
had no notion of a collective mind or group cohesion at the profound
level which would have been needed to make the Grail Code manifest
outside the genome and prove successful.
The Grail Code was applicable only to the Grail Blood. Elsewhere the
only thing that worked was the law of the jungle and terrorism. The
Family were seen as a soft touch because their empathy was extended
to peoples who had no empathy themselves, only the desire to satisfy
their own greed and assuage their own fears.
These peoples' selfish, individualistic motivations stood in direct
opposition to the Grail Code of 'royal communism' and community
service. Desire is a great motivator in any society and the Elves'
desires were motivated by their transcendent consciousness, which
could only operate in an environment of truth and empathy.
The more one sees the less one desires for oneself and the less
attached one becomes. If one desires truth and sees only truth and
gives instinctively for the common good because one can feel the
common need, one becomes the target for opportunists and deceivers.
Faced with the violence and hostility of a group of myopic animals
hell bent on their pursuing their own own interests and unable to
see the bigger picture, the Elves had no chance of survival anyway,
whatever the other circumstances might have been.
This alone was enough to destroy them. In a sense then, the Grail
Code was a death sentence to the Dragon Families. This, perhaps, is
how the Mayors of the Palace took over, through exploiting what they
perceived as the innate trust, complacency and weakness of the
One can appear dark or harsh in one's attitudes towards human beings
and human behavior and one may make people wonder how one could
possibly spout about the Grail on one hand and despise humans so
much on the other. After all, isn't the Grail Code all to do with
being nice to each other? Isn't it about being fair to one's fellow
man? Doesn't it fit in with the overall ethos of the New Age? The
answer to all these rhetorical questions is an absolute No. It isn't
and it doesn't.
The Grail Code is the perfect example of an ill-advisedly applied
series of innate laws arising from the profound depths of the
genetic constitution of one species, applied to and completely
misunderstood and abused by another, to the detriment of their
originators and ultimately to the detriment of the abusers
themselves, who thought to gain by killing their nautonniers, not
realizing that they, the usurpers, were too thick to organize
society themselves. In this statement wrong?
Look around you and judge for yourself. After a thousand years of
tyrannical misrule, European society is finally beginning to throw off
the shackles of merchant class stupidity and disintegrate.
Unfortunately this new found dissent and 'freedom' has no direction
either and the path society is treading will inevitably become
littered with the corpses of the fallen.
People aren't naturally 'nice' to each other, they are simply
conditioned to fear the consequences of not appearing to be nice to
each other. Even so, this barrier is now breaking down and at the
grassroots level society is becoming more violent as individuals
embrace 'Aquarian Individualism' (aka selfish opportunism) and
disregard their conditioning.
There is a stark difference between the two concepts and conditions
of natural empathy and social fear. One comes from within, the other
is applied from without. If people were naturally co-operative and
naturally empathic, the Grail Code would be a universal
constant in an ordered world of ecological sensitivity and social
harmony. This, plainly and manifestly is not, and never has been the
case, certainly not since the Church came to power. The Grail Code
arises naturally from, and is pertinent solely to, the Grail Blood.
The Grail Code is the behavioral benchmark by which those of the
Grail or Dragon Blood might be
recognized, but it is not the code
that efficiently orders the behavior of the Dragon Families in
their dealings with those not of the Grail Blood.
In 'Genesis of the Grail Kings'
Gardner commented on the love that
the Anunnaki had for social order, which was echoed in
where vampires were said to have a reputation for pathological
meticulousness and where nearby, Dracula ran his kingdom with the
precision of a well oiled machine.
In the earlier days of the Anunnaki it is quite feasible to think
that the collective empathic consciousness was particularly strong
and we might see here the foundation of the Grail Code
family of the Gods. Nevertheless, later there were still incidents
of internecine strife.
However, where outsiders were concerned the Grail Code was only
applied inasmuch as it related to maintaining order for the benefit
of the Overlords. Was there any question of the Gods being 'Nice' to
man or applying the Grail Code solely for man's benefit? There was a
difference between the Grail Code for the Grail Blood and the
Code as it applied to man. One has to say that Enlil was right.
As the Blood devolved the capacity to apply empathy and co-operation
appropriately weakened and this resulted formerly in family wars,
and latterly in the kind of mental weakness, confusion and cultural
misapplication which ended in the genocide of the race by Catholic
These are pertinent lessons that the Bloodline would do well to
learn if it is to rebuild itself again. It doesn't necessarily mean,
because the Bloodline is at the end of the seventh
millennium of its
recorded history, that it is too late to turn back the clock.
However, if the Dragon is to survive at all, it must learn the
lessons of history, redefine its identity and strive to enrich its
Blood once more. If it doesn't, it will die completely and the world
will die with it.
An old saying from British folklore asserts that if the land loses
its Elves, the land dies. In two thousand years the face of the
countryside in Britain and Ireland in particular has changed
completely and there is now nowhere that man hasn't manipulated,
exploited or raped. Compared to what it was, the land is indeed
dead. Its spirit has almost gone.
The spirit of the land, its innate magic and mystery, has died
because the Elves have all but died as well. The land consequently
has no real voice anymore, no champions and no orators. Without the
Dragon Queens and the Elven Overlords to
interpret the will of the
Earth (and without Brehon Law to protect it from fools) man himself
fails to hear the deeper message the land gives him.
The ancient forests of giant Oak and
Beech are no more and the
sacred places have been either built on in acts of blasphemy by
greedy religion or torn up by the mindless merchant-class ancestors
of today's mindless, middle-class consumer population.
In the theory of critical mass, sometimes called the "99th Monkey
Effect" - based on Jung's theory of Collective Consciousness working
Rupert Sheldrake's 'Field of Morphic Resonance' - the
collective mind of a race creates a spiritual and cultural
whose field of resonance can be felt in the material world. In the
case of the Elves that Archetype was manifest in the Age of Magic.
Simply put, when the Elves lived they created a field of magic
around them whose power arose from the very sovereignty of the earth
itself. However, when the Church killed the Elves, the Earth was
silenced and the magic largely died.
Having assisted the Church to kill off the Elves man now stands
alone against a being he uses with contempt for his own gain, but
whose power against him is limitless and whose patience with him is
not. The highest so-called authorities on Earth have finally
realized what they have done and even they, the United Nations
Organization, say that the clock is ticking and time is running out.
The spirit of True Romance and Magic is all but dead. It diminished
when the Church enslaved the spirit of mankind to a material,
hateful god. Through scientific means, however, the Sundered Tribes
can be reborn, the dragon blood can be restored and enriched, and
the Dragon Queens and Elven Lords can rise once more to restore to
people a sense of wonder, a sense of hope and an Age of Magic.
