Excerpt from 'Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts'
P.O.B. 2808, Lilburn, GA 30226
In 1947 the CIA was organized and the first UFO cases burst upon the American media landscape as "flying saucers." In that year, also, the first modern visitation by the infamous Men in Black took place in which a witness, one Harold Dahl, was silenced.
From that point on, a pattern began to emerge.
UFOlogy bizarro chronicler John Keel ("Disneyland of the Gods", "Jadoo", etc.) observed in his "UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse":
"The Autobiography of Malcolm X" described Malcolm's encounter with an MIB in prison:
It is interesting that the celebrated film "Malcolm X" chooses to imply that this figure was Nation of Islam leader Elijah Mohammed.
While Elijah Mohammed and his mysterious teacher Wallace Fard (who vanished without a trace) had come out of High Degree Prince Hall Freemasonry, and certainly knew some of the esoteric secrets, the being Malcolm X described is more in accord with Aleister Crowley's description of the praterhuman intelligence Aiwass than of Elijah Mohammed.
UFOlogist Gray Barker got his one and only best-selling book in detailing the Albert K. Bender story and the world-wide wave of silencings.
"They Knew Too Much about the Flying Saucers" was an international success. It was widely assumed that the Men in Black were either government agents or extraterrestrials, but as researchers Wilgus and Keel have shown, the eye in the triangle was sometimes their only insignia, while my own research showed startling parallels to certain black magick rituals in medieval times which provoked visitations by what was often called "the Man in Black" - widely understood to be the Devil himself.
Even Barker noted that Albert K. Bender's experiments were
more like a magical conjuration than an attempt at extraterrestrial
communication. Any initiated magician reading Bender's accounts
would recognize the elements of magical conjuration immediately.
Often when a person or institution allied with the historical Great White Brotherhood approaches success (variously defined) or comes into possession of certain aspects of transcendent wisdom, Something Intervenes.
That something has been defined as the Man in Black, the Men In Black, the black lodges, or The Black Lodge.
The latter term most nearly accommodates my own view. That they need to do this, and that they often fail in their efforts, is itself an indication that,
The story of our interaction with the UFOnauts begins with the
Qabalistic Tree of Life, and the Chakra system of the body.
This Unmanifest cannot be understood in the external sense, but can be
Known in the Gnostic sense by the initiate or perfected sentient
being, the Ubermensch. It can be plugged into.
But the manifestations also increasingly
become subject to subdivision into arbitrary concepts such as "good"
and "evil" as these are commonly understood. And they also become
closer and closer in form and content to our own mundane reality,
though in the relativity of things, these Higher Intelligences may
seem unspeakably powerful, mythic and divine.
Phil Dick, in his last Gnostic allegorical fiction, eventually
settled on the name "V.A.L.I.S." or "Vast Active Living intelligence
System" for this being or Demiurge. He wrestled through his literary
career and secret life as a Christian Gnostic philosopher with
was a benevolent, if machine-like deity of a sort, or
an insane extraterrestrial supercomputer.
These humans have
been our Seers, Oracles and Prophets. It appears, in fact, that much
of the source-material of all religions comes from such channelings,
including, arguably, "The Book of Revelation", "The Book of Mormon",
and "The Book of the Law".
The so-called Great White Brotherhood, when undistorted, appears (according to legend) guided by Intelligences associated with the dual star system Sirius or Sothis in some manner (see "The Sirius Mystery" by Robert Temple for a discussion of the Sirius connection - also Kenneth Grant's "Outside the Circles of Time" discusses the matter from a magical perspective).
This brotherhood also seems to have the purpose of uplifting human character and initiating biological and social evolution designed to move towards identification with Ultimate Being.
What is sometimes called "the
Black Lodge," which we may associate with the Gnostic Demiurge or
Phil Dick's VALIS, is generated to keep humanity in a state of
materialist trance and evolutionary stagnation.
Ciphers for decoding messages between the black lodges and their alien sponsors have always existed.
But confusions of a deliberate nature exist; the ancient Gnostics uncovered a cipher which clearly indicates that the story of the Garden of Eden in its conventional form is turned on its head.
The Serpent is clearly the symbol of Knowledge, Wisdom, the Kundalini Yogic force, the Will-current - that is, it is the symbol of Liberation and Self-Mastery. The jealous "gods," as read in the original manuscripts, are clearly the forces of blockage, self-denial and repression - which is to say, the Intelligences governing the Black Lodge.
This Knowledge of Good
and Evil and Life and Death has been the Terrible Secret of
Initiates throughout history, recorded in ciphers and myths, and
passed on through ritual.
Indeed, Aleister Crowley observed that,
The Black Brothers are highly advanced adepts of the Art who have simply, as the popular phrase goes,
At certain times and places in history - for example, medieval Tibet or, in more modern times, Nazi Germany - the Black Lodge as operated more or less openly with characteristic occult symbols of human skulls, lightning bolts, etc. out in the open.
But like the Great White Brotherhood that it
actively seeks to subvert and overthrow (as it did in the time of
the Knights Templar), the Black Lodge has generally communicated by
cipher and myth, in silence and secrecy, often within religious,
fraternal and political institutions dedicated to the status quo.
This development may, in fact, be attributed to a cosmic principle of "equal generation of forces."
Thus, the birth of the modern form, as the fraternity of the knights militant of the New Aeon in the cultural and political turbulence of Germany in the 1890s, may fairly (along with the coincident peak in the development of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Universal Gnostic Church) be characterized as the resurgence of the Great White Brotherhood and its rejuvenation out of the degeneration of classical speculative freemasonry.
This coincides closely with the
"Great Airship Scare" of 1897.
The full story of,
...and other manifestations of the Black Lodge in the pre-Nazi and Nazi era has yet to be told, though Pauwels and Bergier take an informal stab at it in "The Morning of the Magicians".
Rudolph Hess, the last known member of the Thule Group, told Jack Fishman ("The Seven Men of Spandau") that Thule leader and occult initiate General Karl Haushofer (1869-1946),
Hess believed in the cause to the end of his life.
The last prisoner at Spandau, Hess died at the significant
age of 93, proclaiming his loyalty to the Thule ideal to the very
end. The period, in the middle 1930s, in which these groups attained
their greatest, ruinous power over the German state coincides
closely with the reports of "ghost rockets" over Northern Europe.
On the other hand, fearing the power of the Black Lodge as a political entity and eroding its hold on esoteric Eastern Religion as a practical necessity had provoked the British to effectively dismantle the classical Eastern manifestation of the Black Lodge, and Western occultists visiting the East in the 19th and early 20th century already could only find watered-down remnants and secret adepts carrying on the hidden wisdom in either form.
The Great White Brotherhood survived in
along with the Dark Lodges, and, since the Chinese occupation, many
of its chiefs have found their way to India and around the world.
Among various Tantric Buddhist and Bon religious institutions, the P.L.A. liquidated the cavern retreats of Schamballah and Agarthi, the former being possibly the oldest surviving branch of the Black Lodge on the planet. (See Ossendovski's, 'Men, Beasts and Gods' - circa 1925, for an account of Schamballah and Agarthi.)
As survivors of the Marxist massacre from the Tibetan Great White Brotherhood are known to have come to the West in subsequent years, it may be assumed that survivors of the Black Lodge have set up operations in our own society as well.
We can see the marks of their presence in so-called right-handed
Eastern circles that have gained a certain currency among
Westerners, and which peddle a useless baggage of New Age
I leave it to my readers to decide whether she was
seduced from the Great Brotherhood to the Black Lodge, or vice
The Tibetan colony in Berlin in fact predates the Nazi rise to power, having been established in 1926.
One Tibetan Monk, termed "the man
with the green gloves" and a reputed psychic, was frequently visited
by Hitler and was rumored to hold the keys to the Kingdom of Agarthi.
Such keys are best understood in terms of ciphers.
...received instruction from surviving institutions of the
Great White Brotherhood and carried their influence back with them
to Europe, just as the Templars had done centuries before, and
incorporated their teachings into the Western Esoteric System.
It would seem that the immediate goal of the Black Brothers is to delay the Manifestation of the New Aeon, the birth of the magical child and the realization of the ubermensch through diversion of the Will-current into less than useless power plays, demoralizing materialist and superstitious delusions, New Age jargon, etc.
The classic example in the Twentieth Century was the Nazi appropriation, under Black Lodge influence, of the very concept of the ubermensch, and sidetracking it into a pathetic racialist caricature of Nietzsche's super being.
The Black Lodge in the Nazi era totally discredited the concept of the evolved human supermen by grafting it onto German nationalist and racialist conceits, while suppressing the Gnostic Church, the OTO, the Anthroposophical Society and even lost-word freemasonry - in short, anyone who might have an actual understanding of the coming Being.
The leading figure of the OTO in Germany, the future Grand Master Karl Germer, was placed in a concentration camp. His official crime was that he knew and maintained relations with Aleister Crowley.
The Chief Bishop of the Universal Gnostic Church in France was executed by the Nazis.
Crowley, for his part,
According to Gerald Suster,
War of the magicians, indeed!
Much of the "White Light Channeling" clearly bears the stamp of the Black Lodge and VALIS, an empty metaphysical blind of insipid psychic trivia. Many self-improvement groups have their origins in the ideas of failed magicians like L. Ron Hubbard.
We have new age centers that teach
nothing useful, UFO message-oriented cults waving flashlights on
mountains, and, as I have shown end-of-the-world doomsayers touting
this or that grand cosmic alignment, harmonic convergence or polar
Phil Dick's last efforts were marred by insipid trivial UFO
cult channelings - the kind of stuff that was old hat to hardened
UFOlogists by the late 1950s. Compare Phil Dick's musings in "The
Last Testament" with, for example, the Mark Prophet or Dick Miller
or Gloria Lee Bird materials of UFO contacteé lore.
Aleister Crowley explained it this way:
Crowley's references to his wars with
the Black Lodge are scattered throughout his writings and bear
further study. From these writings, one can come to understand that
the form of the attack upon the magician can range from political
repression to seduction.
In the early days of the magical revival, the existence of an inner order was taken for granted.
This was followed by a long epoch of expose, disillusionment and world weariness. But now, revisionist historians are finding evidence that these groups, usually described in mythic terms, are as material as they are archetypal.
in very Truth, the "Inner Order" - in communication with and
overlapping with Ultraterrestrial Sources.
But one should at least allow that the legend of secret chiefs may have some rather literal basis in fact; that there are high masters of the art scattered around the world, that they are in communication with one another, and that how they use their illumination depends upon their character and predisposition.
This is all that one must grant to consider the great brotherhood, or secret chiefs, as well as their opposition plausible.
It was the Hidden Church of Karl von Eckartshausen that brought Aleister Crowley to the path, and small wonder; von Eckartshausen wrote in the 18th century of,
In medieval European graal mythology, we find a strain of accomplished Graal Templars going out in secret to govern and protect far-flung populations, but (as in von Eschenbach's Parzival),
As magical mythologist Aleister Crowley has a wonderful time with both friend and foe in the fictional "Moonchild", but his nonfictional recounting of the same period comes uncomfortably close to the metaphor of the war between the Great White Brotherhood and the Black Lodge.
Then we find the matter of fact (if remarkable) essay on sexual magick, "Energized Enthusiasm," interrupted, as it were, in midcourse by an anecdotal accounting worthy of "Moonchild".
What followed was an account of a close
encounter of a Most Peculiar Kind, best read in the original.
He remarks in this manner in his autobiography, but is still quite convinced 20 or so years later when he notes, in "Magick Without Tears":
We should take note of Paul Johnson's recent trailblazing study of the theosophical masters.
The essence may be boiled down to this: secret chiefs or hidden masters may have good reason to mythologize themselves, and encourage those in direct contact with them to follow suit on the border where magical philosophy meets with its political implications, the need for secrecy assumes a more practical rationale.
The Secret Chiefs may be
secret not because they are myths or immortals, but because they are
I believe most of us have virtually no idea of what makes Islamic Republicanism tick, and we stand appalled not only at the atrocities of Islamic Government, but at its sheer zeal. The idea of Pat Robertson driving a truck filled with explosives into an enemy military compound shouting "Jesus is Lord!" is ludicrous in our imaginations.
Put Billy Graham behind the wheel... but you get the
tendencies meet and overlap, and explain much about the nature of
Masonic and occult secrecy, the cell structure common to political
radicals and occultists, and the hostility of the established State
and Church to both.
Alessandro di Cagliostro,
almost certainly a (rather more public than would seem judicious)
Secret Chief, was arrested and condemned by the Inquisition, dying
in a Roman prison.
Johnson's cast of characters in early
Theosophical history overlaps with occultist-magical history
considerably. The great Magi Papus, P.B. Randolph and
all come under consideration by Johnson.
The letter, as it turned out, predicted the death of two enemies of the Theosophical Society, which swiftly came to pass.
The actual identity of "Master K.H." seems to be one Thakar Singh, an enlightened radical Sikh leader, in contact with the worldwide network of radicals of the 19th century.
Israel Regardie described Mathers' fateful encounter in this way:
Mathers observed that, for his part,
As outré as these tales are, they coincide remarkably with close
encounter accounts from as early as St. Paul's fateful experience on
the road to Damascus, to Albert K. Bender's three Men in Black.
That it is scattered through the work and written under an implicit assumption that the proofs of a residue of concrete reality, however bizarre, are readily obvious to the reader is unfortunate, in today's (properly) more wary magical and UFOlogical circles.
All that we attempt to demonstrate here is that a plausible case can be made for historical revision at this time.
Johnson's tentative identification of Theosophical Masters both
demythologizes them and adds to the credibility of their existence.
If Johnson is correct, the Secret Chiefs are not only real but they
probably have phone numbers - doubtless unlisted.
Brad Steiger observed in 1988, that, apparently,
Only with the coming of cipher knowledge can we decode the Pretended Saviors from Authentic Benefactors or, better Allies.
Taking into consideration that UFO contacteé George King and his Aetherius Society are earnestly engaged in the war being waged by the (Great White) Brotherhood against the Black Magicians, "a group they feel seeks to enslave the human race," as Steiger puts it, the UFOlogy mythos and the magical mythos are shown clearly to be cut from the same cloth.
The nature of that cloth, in
the hands of Crowley or King, is now no longer obscure.
