WHAT are the Secret Rituals of the Men
in Black, you ask yourself. Does this book actually give them away?
Is it an exposure, like another book of Secret Rituals that came out
over three decades ago? Or other such exposures that come out every
few decades, since the need arose in men’s minds to have a glimpse
at the inner workings of the Secret Club? Will we become aware of
just who or what the dreaded Men in Black are, where they come from,
or where they spend their time?
In order to answer these questions,
let us present some ideas that shed “further light” on these two
ideas: Secret Rituals, and Men in Black.
To start, I must say that this book has not been offered anywhere
before - in print, or on the web, save for a small portion of it, in
the form of
the chapter on Jack Parsons, which appeared on the
Brother Blue site, and was carried in an early number of the
Lodge Occult Review in 2002, and offered in Roots of Magick: 1700
It is with great pleasure that we offer this important
work to the public.
Secret Rituals are Rituals that have not been exposed. The Rituals
of certain organizations that have been published are no longer
secret-whether we are talking about various Masonic organizations,
Rosicrucian Orders, the Golden Dawn, Crowley’s
A. A., the O. T. O., T. O. P. Y., or any other. The rituals
published by Morgan, by Blanchard, and others are no longer secret.
Those offered for sale by Kissinger are no longer secret.
published by Aleister Crowley,
Israel Regardie, and Francis King,
Naylor and Koenig are no longer secret. Does that mean that
is lost once the clichéd cat is let out of the proverbial bag?
Of course not.
As Allen has mentioned, in the present book, and in other places,
armchair ritualizing does not make one an initiate. One must
experience the Rituals in order for them to be effective. Not only
that, as organizations grow and develop, the rites and practices
should reflect that growth and development. Failure to Initiate is a
“fatal error” - and more than one Initiate has, through the years
warned the Brethren about it.
Fresh material needs to be infused
regularly over time into the body of the organization - any
organization, if its Initiation procedure is going to remain fresh,
vital, and relevant to the society it exists in and which forms the
base that it draws its
membership from. Say it isn’t so? Look around you. Guess again.
What, then, are the Secret Rituals exposed here? For starters, this
book is not so much an exposure as it is a signpost pointing the
way. The way? The WAY! This is the Path. The Path involves Contact.
Communication with that OTHER portion. The Other Side.
of gestures, signs and handshakes, secret languages, ciphers,
pass-words, mnemonic data that is supposed to be memorized so that
one can pass an exam that maybe even the examiner is ignorant of,
without the answer key, are all worthless unless it is realized that
it is all outer trappings, devoid of any value or significance at all
unless viewed in the Light of the experience of Contact.
What is the
“Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel” after all?
So, then, would it be fair to say that those Rituals which
facilitate the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian
Angel, such as the “Bornless” Ritual, the Augoeides layer of the Z-2
formulae, Levi’s Conjuration of the Four and other rituals that
exist along these lines - are Secret Rituals?
Even if they are in-print and exposed many times over? Yes.
What gives? Didn’t I just say that publication exposes once-held
secrets and renders them ineffective? True, I did. However, there is
an exception to that rule, and that has to do with a cycle of
rituals that are very personal and private affairs - that involve the
development of the self so that it can communicate with the Self,
and achieve that Indwelling, the Day Spring from on High, as the
ancients called it.
A group of people can go out to Joshua Tree (or similar popular
remote places) - ingest all the entheogens they want, and do the
sing-song repetition of rituals written by Somebody Else, and inflate
their egos and accomplish little more. It is really necessary in
this racket, to develop one’s own shtick - to forge one’s act in
isolation. Such is the life of the Hermit.
Walk softly, but carry a big shtick. Such is the saying of the Mad
To find one’s link with the Infinite, and to contact that and to
communicate with it: such is the Law!
A shorthand illustration is called for here. Perhaps the most basic
ritual in the Western Esoteric Tradition is the Pentagram Ritual.
Lesser or Greater, it matters little. The Ritual is far more than
merely a “protective circle casting” as some would have it. It
facilitates Contact, if used as the basic template from which to
develop the fully-blown rituals that we get in the Z-2 and other

as we have it, comes to us from the Golden Dawn cycle of rituals and
knowledge lectures. However, its distant parent was the “Conjuration
of the Four” published by Eliphas Levi. The Conjuration of the Four
is a Ritual used by the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, in its
Initiation ceremonies. It, too, is a development of an earlier cycle
of rituals, employed by its predecessors in the Fratres Lucis, and
before that, the Asiatic Brethren.
These, in their turn, go back to
the Gold Rosicrucians AND THE authentic Kabbalah, embodied in the
teachings and practices of Jacob Frank, Sabbatai Zevi, and so forth,
ultimately taking us to the dawn of Kabbalah in the Languedoc, when
Isaac the Blind of Posquières and his circle achieved communication
with Elijah on the Day of Atonement early in the 12th Century of the
Common Era. For more on this, we recommend Allen’s book, Roots of Magick: 1700 thru 2000 - as well as some of the material to be found
on the Antiquities of the Illuminati website (www.antiqillum.com)
I, too, have my own Secret Rituals. These are based upon the
foundation ritual of the Western Esoteric Tradition, the Lesser
Ritual of the Pentagram, as modified by Aleister Crowley. These
Rituals, developed over the years, are effective, particularly since
I HAVE NOT exposed them to the public, particularly to the email
forum public, that splits hairs over juvenile trivia and pushes
people away who may actually have more to offer at the table than the
flatulence that is generally the rule of the day.
Such are those who
make a lot of noise, and have the audacity to accuse those who have
something to say of making noise but possessing no signal. In a
place where the signal is dead to begin with, the old saw applies:
the pot calling the kettle black.
Some of these “Secret Rituals” are exposed in part, however, in the
artwork that illustrates these works, and “valuable to those who can
read between the lines” - as it were.
At some point we may lift a corner of the veil to the sanctuary for
a little while.
Men in Black
Who, then, are the Men in Black?
In the context explored here, they
are the great Mystery men of the Authentic Tradition, in part; and
they can also be those entities or forces that show up or are
summoned forth in rituals of Ceremonial Magick, in part. In
addition, in the classical UFOlogy model, they are those mysterious
beings that usually appear in threes, arriving out of nowhere, for
the purpose of silencing those who would go public with knowledge
about UFOs. UFOlogists, for the most part, do not like the Men in
They constitute a pestilence. They create mischief. They
At the outset of the project I embarked upon, to make these two
books of Allen’s available to the public, it was made clear that we
wanted to avoid the typical stereotyping that the Men in Black get
in the publishing world, on the web, in movies and so forth. So,
this is not going to be that particularly delightful episode of the
X-Files with the black Cadillacs appearing out of nowhere.
No black Cadillacs, or any other old vehicles of a similar cast. No groups of
three men wearing black suits from the forties. Darn, I love those
black suits. I have my own. I get into Jewish weddings and don’t
have to don the yarmika! Is it any coincidence that the Magician’s
clothing usually consists of a black robe, cap, and other
Seriously, though, there is a lineage involved. It is that which is
pointed to here in this book. Sometimes it involves the classical
Western personalities who get placed on the lists of saints and
grand masters. Sometimes it includes other personalities.
Personalities perhaps less well-known than those in the tourist
literature. Personalities that are mentioned in this book, thereby
allowing the interested student to research them on their own time.
A few words now, on a related subject. That subject is the
- a tradition I have been researching, writing about and practicing
for nearly fifteen years, and one which Allen has been researching,
writing about and practicing for decades. Unbeknownst to each other,
we have formed a very wide definition for what is termed “Johannite”
- not merely the Johannism that is usually applied to an obscure
Templar revival of the late 18th / early 19th centuries.
Our Johannism goes back to the beginnings of “contacteeism” on Planet
True, it’s been written about, but without the nomenclature, by
Zecharia Sitchin in his
Earth Chronicles series. We would be foolish
to hold that series to be the source, however, for our research.
Instead, we have drawn from the sources he employed, where we can find
or gain access to them. We recognize the value of the various
franchise works like that: they point to the sources.
We first read
of the Oannes in
The 12th Planet.
We also read of it in works on
Masonry and the Western Esoteric Tradition, like Manly Palmer Hall’s
Secret Teachings of All Ages, Mackenzie’s Royal Masonic Cyclopaedia,
and other sources like that. Later, we ran across allusions to it in
Holy Blood, Holy Grail (or works based on it, such as GENISIS, by
David Wood) in reference to the Neptunian Quinotaur, the marine
animal that impregnated the mother of the first Merovingian king.
also came across a large amount of the source material in Shklovskii’s and Sagan’s book, Intelligent Life in the Universe;
some writings of
H. P. Lovecraft dealing with the rites associated
with Dagon; and other things. By the time we finally obtained a copy
The Sirius Mystery, we had already seen earlier source materials.
What became clear to me, and a bone of contention with many who
prefer to disagree out of stubbornness, is that the names given to
the Oannes, Annedotus, et al., are etymologically related to the
name Jonathan, and not so much to the name John.
The name Jonathan
meaning YAH HAS GIVEN; the name John meaning the name
GRACIOUS. We had run across the name of Jon in an apocryphal letter
to a Brazilian Mason and it piqued our curiosity. Later we found
that the name was important, in a different form as Dositheos, the
successor of that other John - John the Baptist, and predecessor to
Simon Magus, said to be the fountainhead of the Gnosis.
This is all
familiar territory for those who have read my writings on the
subject so I must write in shorthand, since this is just an
introductory essay. When I obtained copies of Crowley texts that I
had not possessed before my access to the internet commenced, I
found that indeed, the name John was employed in a very auspicious
manner in not only a “Secret Ritual” but in a Mystery Play - a Play
that bears a relationship to a series of engravings and paintings,
by Poussin, Madathanus, Lambert and others.
I am pleased to see that I am not the only person who has reached
these conclusions - conclusions that when they were detective’s
hunches seemed outrageous and far-fetched.
As a recap to the ideas I expressed in the first part of this
introduction, namely that of the evolution of ritual, and the
personalization of ritual for the purpose of achieving that contact,
I can say that Qadosh: the Johannite Tradition, is truly one of those
Secret Rituals, and a key teaching to those who seek to find their
place in the scheme of things pertaining to “the Path”.

“Conduct the Aspirant…that he may be instructed in our Secret Cypher,
after which let him be seated.”
Grand Pontifi, Secret Ritual of the 64° “Sage of Mythras”, Masonic
Rite of Memphis
FOR skeptics and believers alike, the secret rituals of occultism,
and later, of trance mediumship, have always been something of a
puzzle. In the early 19th Century one Captain Morgan revealed some
of these secrets to the world, and was apparently executed for doing
so. The scandal thus set in motion resulted for a time in the
Anti-Masonic Party becoming the second largest political party in
the United States.
Surprisingly, the rituals Morgan (and later others) revealed
disclosed little more, on the surface, than simple morality plays
which climaxed with the communication of certain secret words and
gestures, of no obvious importance. Yet, the communication of these
secrets took place only after the candidates for admission swore an
oath of secrecy, often accompanied with dire threats for betrayal.
The Masonic degrees, those of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn
and other, similar ceremonial bodies seemed hardly to justify such
threats, viewed in the cold light of day. We find the same pattern
emerging in trance mediumship and UFO contacteeism where, with much
fanfare, ‘spirits’ or ‘aliens’ emerge from spaceships or from The
Great Beyond to tell percipients merely their names and where they
came from. If there is any ‘message’ at all, it usually consisted of
advice to live in peace.
The reason for all these profoundly bizarre goings-on became
apparent only when we “cracked” the key secret cipher used in such
rituals and spontaneous encounters. Once realized, a bizarre design,
previously suspected by only a few diverse researchers working in
widely differing fields, was fully exposed. It revealed an intricate
worldwide pattern of communication between Ultraterrestrial Forces
almost totally beyond our comprehension and human adepts, stretching
from remote antiquity to the present moment.
The real question should be,
“Why wasn’t this obvious far earlier
than our present discoveries?”
Freemasonry - particularly so-called
‘fringe’ Freemasonry such as that of various Egyptian Rites and its
predecessors in Rosicrucian Occultism and the Ancient Mystery
Religions always offered a series of graded initiations, including
secret words and cipher languages, and an altogether unique view of
The emphasis was on the relationship between humanity
and Higher Powers, the Stars, and a Supreme Force sometimes referred
to as the “Architect of all worlds”.
The mythic plays and planetary
origin stories all seem to have a double meaning, and that meaning
is hidden in the secret pass words and strange names (and strange
spellings of conventional names), which were, in fact, coded
messages. These messages spoke of Aeons-old communication between
human and Ultraterrestrial forces warring for control of the Earth.
The highest-ranking public initiate-adept known by the present
writer, Rev. Michael Bertiaux of Chicago, has long maintained that
the (Egyptian) Rite of Memphis-Misraim was a “front” (in a sense)
for Ultraterrestrial technology. As a Conservator and Hierophant of
a distinct branch of these rites, he would surely know, and our findings,
reinforced by extensive ‘hands on’ knowledge of Masonic and
Cryptomasonic ritual-as well as the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts
itself, clearly demonstrates that Bishop Bertiaux’s assertion is
nothing less than the straightforward truth.
Legends and lore surrounding the Star Sirius figure heavily into our
premise. In distant times, in the days of ancient Sumer in
Mesopotamia, predynastic Egypt in Africa, Dravidian India and in
Mexico long before the Mayans, there is a fairly consistent account
of God-like and perhaps amphibious beings from the sky sometimes
associated with the Constellations Cancer and Orion, and with the
Star Sirius in the constellation Canis Major, or “The Great Dog.”
They visited Earth, establishing a nucleus of priest-kings and
scientists who have carried forth a secret tradition of contact,
communication and Ultraterrestrial overlordship - and rebellion
against that overlordship. This tradition is displayed in various
rituals through myth and cipher, but, in addition, certain ‘sacred
technologies’ are conveyed for reestablishing communication (should
a link be broken), for actual travel to and from Ultraterrestrial
realms, and even indicate in minute detail how to effectively resist
The entire literature of magical invocation and
evocation, seen in this light, is revealed to be a disguised
transmission of these technologies.
It is, to quote an old
commentary on the 60th Degree of the Rite of Memphis,
“a part of the
instruction of the priest of old-the Mysterious Key which opens the
forgotten intelligence of the world of light and truth, and joins
the finite to the infinite.”
This system demonstrates why such powerful forces remain hidden and
have not overwhelmed us; we have allies, and perhaps a Secret or two
“The principal aim of this order is the perfection of man, and his re-approachment towards that source whence it emanated; that is to
say his rehabilitation and reintegration in his primitive rights…”
the candidate for admission is informed in the 64th Degree of the
Rite of Memphis by the Orator.
It would seem to apply not just to
the Rite of Memphis, but to a secret great order of light that has
existed as long as we have.
There has been much talk in recent
decades about the shadowy “Prieure de Sion,” its relationship to the
martyred Knights Templar, the lost sacred lineage of the
Kings of the Holy Roman Empire, and, most controversial of all, the
bloodline of the godman whose sign was the Fish. The Merovingian
lineage in legend is traced back to the Frankish King, Meroveus,
rumored from early times to be the son of the wife of King Claudio
and an aquatic being from beyond the known seas known as the “bestea Neptuni Quinotauri similis”.
As we shall presently demonstrate, this legend of a line of
priest-kings inaugurated by an intelligent aquatic creature from the
far unknown recurs through all of recorded history, from ancient
Sumer to modern stories of UFOnauts and Men in Black.

esoteric religion, but they have more than occasionally overlapped

1 - THE ROLE OF RITUAL IN THE UFO MYSTERY
IN the previous volume,
Secret Cipher of The UFOnauts, we presented
evidence that the UFOnauts themselves, along with certain
terrestrial allies, have been communicating for centuries using
several secret ciphers.
It would not be within the appropriate scope of this work to go into
a detailed description of the transcription of
The Book of The Law,
but a brief background description is certainly necessary.
In the Spring of 1904 the already controversial occultist Aleister
Crowley was on an extended honeymoon with his wife Rose in Cairo,
Egypt. Following some foreshadowing events, Crowley was moved to
take dictation from a “præterhuman intelligence” identifying itself
as “Aiwass” for one hour each day from Noon to 1:00 PM for three
consecutive days, April 8th, 9th and 10th.
During this hour, Aiwass,
a more or less visible presence behind Crowley, dictated a chapter a
day for what was to become Liber AL vel Legis or The Book of the
Law. The Book is described as a Holy Book of the New Aeon, or New
Age, then just arriving. It is, as a text, vivid, compelling,
shocking and altogether unique. It can be read through in a single
It is not our task here to discuss further the merit of the Book
itself. Other English language “trance channeled” materials were
coming forth during the same period; The Cosmic Philosophy of Max Theon and his wife
Alma Ware appeared during this same period, being
also of North African origin. Oahspe appeared in New York a few
years earlier. But, whatever else it is, the Aiwass book was and is
Here we should confine ourselves to a single peculiarity of the Book.
Several passages therein imply strongly that a hidden cipher or key
existed within the text, which, it predicts, Crowley himself would
Despite this, at one point Crowley seems to have tried anyway. Of
interest is a single page of the handwritten original manuscript,
numbered page 16 of the third chapter. In addition to the hastily
written text, which suggests the taking of dictation by one somewhat
unused to secretarial functions, is a curious diagonal line running
roughly from the upper left to lower right of the page, and a sort
of cross, or plus sign (+) enclosed within a circle.
The text, cross
and line all seem to have been written with the same pen at the same
time, and both cross and line are specifically mentioned in the text
itself. (“Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in
its failure is
a key also.”)
1. Aiwass was not Crowley’s only contact. There is considerable
discussion in UFOlogy of
LAM, the being Crowley sketched that so
closely resembled later UFO-related beings described in modern close
encounter cases. His encounter, in 1896, with two “little men” in
the Swiss Alps was mentioned in Jacques Vallee’s
Passport to Magonia
catalogue of close encounter cases. Crowley’s “magical mountain” -
Mt. Mealfuorvonie near Loch Ness in Scotland - is said to be a

top row has a series of letters, a through h, and, except for the
upper left hand square, a series of numbers, 2 through 10 appear on
the extreme left of the page. This grid was superimposed at a later
date with another writing instrument. The page number, 16, in the
upper right square, was added on yet a third occasion.
It is very easy to conclude that Crowley - though the text itself
suggests he would not succeed in finding “the key of it all” -
apparently attempted to do so, with no success.
The Book predicts that “one cometh after him” who would succeed.
This is generally conceded to refer to Crowley’s student
C.S. Jones, who did indeed uncover a key to the text some years
later. The cipher or ‘code’ implied by the key was recorded by Jones
in his magical diary for October 31st, 1918. A careful reading of
this footnote reveals that the letters A, L and W, in some sequence,
form the first three letters of a cipher.
Since the number Eleven is
more than hinted at in The Book of the Law itself as a ‘key’ it
theoretically is easy enough to note that, in standard alphabetical
sequence, there are eleven spaces between A and L, and another
eleven between L and W.
But many decades were to pass before a group
in England calling itself the OAA, and its American counterpart,
QBLH, were to complete the sequence and “obtain the order and value
of the English Alphabet” as called for in The Book of the Law
“This key we have been considering,” says an article in Thelema in
1980, “can be understood from either of two courses. 11 is the
number of Magick, and when we number every 11th letter of the
Alphabet, we arrive with ALW…P.”
The article, signed “D.P. AL” goes
on to explain the other method, using the grid in the original
manuscript described above.
“…when we complete all of the squares with the Alphabet, and
carefully consider that the diagonal line is a Key herein, we shall
again find the “order and value.’’
How this is done is described in an article from the same period by
Carol Smith, writing in the British journal New Equinox.
letters along the top of the page, and it would seem to be obvious
to continue with the alphabet in the manner indicated, but the clue
is in the numbers down the side. A is written instead of 1 which
suggests that B is 2, C 3 and so on. Fill in all the squares on the
grid in this manner, repeating the alphabet when one gets to Z.
proceed to the next step the instruction is written on the page, for
those who have eyes to see. ‘Then this line drawn is a key.’ The
line is a diagonal across the square one gets the order of the
English alphabet to be used in the English Qaballa. Whichever
diagonal is read the order of the letters is obtained. There is only
one order which can be obtained and all 26 letters appear in this
Once the Order and value were obtained, it was discovered that a
comparison of the numerical value of many mystifying words and
phrases were explained in a meaningful way by finding words and
values in the ‘code book’ itself, The Book of the Law, but also in
other sacred texts from the same body of materials, termed “Class A”
documents by Crowley.
The discovery was made by Jim Lees in 1976,
and others including Carol Smith and Jake Stratton-Kent contributed
to early experiments with the Cipher.
During the 1980s one initiate now known as Soror Ishtaria, an active
member and now Outer Head of the QBLH, developed a computer program,
Lexicon, which enables the researcher to quickly obtain the value of
any word or phrase and compare that value to numerical values in The
Book of the Law or, in theory, any text using standard English
Furthermore, Soror Ishtaria, by examining the
cipher as a 26 pointed star (one point for each standard letter),
discovered, with mainframe computer assistance, that by varying the
“cycle” (the cycle we have discussed here is 11; that is, there are
11 spaces between each letter in order of value), without repeating
any letter twice, one could obtain many alternate ciphers, each
yielding, like the first, interesting and evidential results.
For some years this system remained the exclusive “open secret” of a
small circle of occultists. When the present writer encountered the
system, I quickly realized that this cipher was discovered in a
manuscript said to be dictated by a præterhuman, perhaps
Ultraterrestrial intelligence, calling itself “Aiwass”.
system, I wondered, shed any light on UFO related contact cases?
Indeed it did, and this relationship
formed the core of my earlier book,
Secret Cipher of The UFOnauts. Contact names such as “Ashtar”
and “Aura Rhanes” and “Orthon” were shown in a completely new light.
Furthermore, certain cases contained what appeared to be
intentionally “coded” or encrypted messages which, when intercepted,
predicted future similar cases, or the future course of the same
But, unavoidably, I also took a look backwards, before The Book of
the Law, and discovered that similar ‘coded messages’ were contained
in, for example, the names of ‘control entities’ in classical trance mediumship, and in the purported names of Secret Chiefs or Mahatmas
in Theosophy and occultism. This meant that the ‘code’ first revealed
in a public manner in The Book of the Law did not originate in 1904
with the Book itself.
When I began to investigate the secret words and legends in
Rosicrucian and Masonic lore, and in occult rituals, I discovered
that this code had been in use for some time, and had been preceded
by other codes following the same rules for deciphering (otherwise
called Qabala, Kaballah or Caballa) used in the Cipher of the New
The truth became unavoidable: Ultraterrestrials and
Adepts had long been communicating in a code which we were now
cracking, and all previous bets about the nature of the history of
our planet itself were now on hold.

EARLIER ciphers were presented to initiates in a ritual context. This
ritual context has, from at least the times of the Egyptian and
Babylonian Priesthood, formed the bridge between human initiates and
their Ultraterrestrial sponsors, sometimes associated with the
double star system of Sirius, even in ancient times.
Thus, we find
the ‘modern’ Egyptian Masonic Rite of Memphis conferring a secret
Degree called ADEPT OF SIRIUS, the name of which, decoded using the

Trevor James Constable, author (as “Trevor James”) of the seminal
1950s work They Live in the Sky, and an active experimenter today
with Reichian Energies.
John A. Keel long ago noticed that UFO contact incidents seemed to
step out of time in the usual sense. Without the UFOnaut Cipher,
however, the predictive aspect of this non-linear factor can be
In April, 1965, a piece of parchment was found wrapped around a
glass vial containing some silver sand. This was the site of Arthur
Bryant’s encounter with “Yam-ski” the newly made “ascended master”
who emerged from a UFO the day after contactee George Adamski’s
death half a world away. The parchment contained the Greek words
Adelphos Adelpho (“brother to brother”).
Two years later, in
December of 1967, student Tom Monteleone encountered a UFO being in
Adelphi, Maryland. The name of the town should alert us to a
probable ‘coded’ relationship to the earlier case. Monteleone was
told by the entity he met that it was named VADIG. Later, he met
Vadig in Washington, D.C. (where Adamski had died and was buried) in
‘civilian clothes’ several times.
On each occasion VADIG, as if for
emphasis, closed his conversation with the phrase, “I’ll see you in
Keeping in mind that one of Adamski’s main contacts had been Fir-kon,
and that this name had been adopted by an Adamski and Williamson
follower who disappeared without a trace, along with his partner

have seen, the strange words and names that show up in Masonic Lodge
settings are similar in form and purpose to those which show up in
contact cases. They show up in modern cases of Angelic Visitation,
which, in a sense, resemble the visitations of the Men in Black. The
Hebrew word for “angel” literally means “messenger” and the names of
these messengers are often equivalent to the names of Ultraterrestrial Messengers. They also show up in
The original “etheric” and “astral” contacts took place in the ‘50s,
and are a lot like
the Richard Shaver ‘hidden worlds’ material. It is of interest that
an old acquaintance from both the lore of classical occultism and
the legends of modern Ufology, known as “Ashtar” shows up in these
contacts as well.
“Ashtar” is, in traditional occult circles, a
demon of considerable power. In UFO lore, he is usually a “positive
force” or is so identified by percipients. A variant name that shows
up in UFO contact cases is ASHTAR SHERAN. Constable also was in
communication with one ANDOLO. Interestingly, ASHTAR tells Constable
which beings are “etheric” and “good” and which are “astral” and
He tells Constable that one of the bad guys, so to speak
is ERANUS, who he identifies as Satan himself.
These contacts are somewhat puzzling, because they contain, when
viewed in light of the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts, aspects of
deception on the part of certain Ultraterrestrial parties, and we
note the pattern of even a bizarre humor entering the picture.
ASHTAR SHERAN = 108 = FINGERS, while SHERAN by itself = 61 = TOES.
ASHTAR = 47 = ATLANS (one of Shaver’s Ancient Races) and AEON.
ANDOLO = 37 = AGE.
ERANUS, on the other hand, yields 74 = SOLAR DISC
ASHTAR (47) also yields DISC.
Both ASHTAR (47 or 4+7=11)
and ERANUS (74 or 7+4=11; note the 47/74 reversal) both reduce to
the ‘code key number,’ eleven.
I should emphasize again that a
reduction to eleven is usually only possible in significant cases,
eleven being the “cycle key” to the UFOnaut cipher, as explained
He informs us that,
Devil does not exist. It is a false name invented by the Black
Brothers to imply a Unity in their ignorant muddle of
dispersions…‘The Devil’ is, historically, the God of any people that
one personally dislikes… This ‘Devil’ is called Satan or Shaitan, and
regarded with horror by people who are ignorant of his formula, and,
imagining themselves to be evil, accuse Nature herself of their own
Satan is Saturn, Set, Abrasax, Adad, Adonis, Attis,
Adam, Adonai, etc.
The most serious charge against him is only that
he is the Sun in the South. The Ancient Initiates, dwelling as they
did in land whose blood was the water of the Nile or the Euphrates,
connected the South with life-withering heat, and cursed the quarter
when the solar darts were deadliest…
But to us, aware of the
astronomical facts, this antagonism to the South is a silly
superstition which the accidents of their local conditions suggested
to our animistic ancestors.”
Ashtar, on the other hand, is more suspect. He is frequently
mentioned in the UFO literature.
Early contactee George Van Tassel
mentions him in 1952 as,
“Ashtar, commandant of station Schare” and a
very powerful ruler.
Van Tassel’s Giant Rock conventions became the
fountainhead of the entire contemporary New Age movement. Van
Tassel’s trance channel group, in fact, included advanced students
of Parmahansa Yogananda’s Yogic Philosophy.
UFOlogist Bryant Reeves
told his wife Helen that Van Tassel,
“reminds me of a veritable
modern ‘John the Baptist’ crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare ye for
a new cosmic age’."
The occult literature has always considered
ASHTAR, or Astaroth, a fallen angel, that is, a malevolent demon.
The Lemegeton (the Lesser Key of Solomon, or Book of Evil Spirits)
tells us that Ashtar,
“discourses willingly on the Fall but pretends
that he himself was exempt from their lapse”.
suspiciously like what ASHTAR was doing with Trevor Constable, and
other contactees, particularly in America.
Interestingly also, The
True Key of Solomon (Grimorium Verum, dated 1517 and allegedly
translated from an earlier Hebrew source) tells us that ASHTAR
migrated to America, presumably around the time of Columbus.
when ASHTAR SHERAN (= “FINGERS & TOES”) tells us to watch out for
the “Satanic” ERANUS (= SUN ERA or SOLAR DISC), watch out for Ashtar.
Constable, be it noted, has come to have a more wary view of his
early communications experiences, for which he has our admiration.
The More Angelic side is represented here too.

3 - THE MITCHELL SISTERS
CLASSIFIED Communications is a newsletter put out by Erich A. Aggen,
Jr., an “old hand” in UFOlogy.
The April, 1994 issue carried some
material on the classic UFO contact story of the Mitchell Sisters,
who mysteriously disappeared in the early 1960s. Aggen gives us a
condensed version of a 1959 speech by Betty and Helen Mitchell:
were contacted quite unexpectedly while we were shopping in St.
Louis. We had gone into a sandwich shop for a coke,” Betty tells us,
“when the contact was completed by the Space People.”
The two were ELEN and ZELAS, from THE LEAGUE.
Later, Helen informs us,
alone in downtown St. Louis on business when I was again contacted
by the space people and at their request went with them by
automobile into Illinois where we drove to a heavily wooded area.
There, I was told, was where they landed when they had business or
contacts to make in St. Louis.”
The 38 foot saucer was parked out
back. It had the usual sliding doors and domes.
Taken to the mother
ship, Helen met Three Men, one of whom was ALNA, a ranking official.
Helen also spoke about the Martian city named VRSS, and a contact
from Venus named TREGON. These cases, with their mundane “on the
street” somewhat humorous aspects (meetings in diners, driving in
cars with aliens, etc.) have ALWAYS been a part of the UFO lore, and
point up how intermeshed the phenomena are with daily life.
Aggen, in the same issue, also discusses a 1964 letter from a
mysterious “Mr. N.Y.” concerning aliens from the Planet BAAVI, which
orbits Proxima Centauri. In ancient times they constructed a base,
now an astonishing ruin, at
Baalbek in the Lebanon. In 1964 they
were based in the Maldive Islands, using space ships called
These cases are another bonanza for the UFO cipher detective.

1948 Fellowship), the amphibious being OANNES = 66, etc.

celestial “God-computer” Vast Active Living Intelligence System and

and equal to O TREE (the female aspect of the Qabalistic Tree of
Life, the right pillar base of which is traditionally held to be
NETZACH or the Sphere of Venus)
VENUS = 71 = JEWEL and IS A STAR.
That Venus is perceived as a “jewel-like star” is hardly news, but
the cipher value seems too close for coincidence.
The “Mr. N.Y.” case has Shaverian overtones, and may be a kind of

VAIDORGES = 100, or 10+0=10 and 1+0=1.
Ten is the operable number of the Piscean Age (Ten Commandments, Ten
Spheres on the Tree of Life, etc).
In the New Aeon (Age of
Aquarius), which began in March of 1904 of the common era, this
becomes a bit suspect. VAIDORGES as such are NOT DEROS, but the
pilots, BAAVI, are DEROS. All of the old machines, as Dick Shaver
told us half a century ago, were developed by beings who were NOT
DEROS, but Deros, according to the Shaverian mythos, are usually in
control of them today.
Stay off of the VAIDORGES - they may be a
hazard to your health. But who is the ‘Surgeon General’ who built
the warning into the names?
We have been noticing frequent manifestation of the Number of the
New Aeon, eleven. More Elevens: Ray Palmer’s FACT (his way of
decoding UFO stories) = 56 or 5 + 6 = 11, the number that is the KEY
to the Cipher of the UFOnauts.
When RAP said he had a FACT to
decode stories, this is what he meant. But who gave him the Cipher
of the UFOnauts? The pulp fiction magazines of the 1930s and 40s were
where Palmer started, and THAT arena was full of occultists, future UFOlogists, and the like.

circle, Col. Arthur Burks, L. Ron Hubbard and many others were

4 - NEW AGE OR NEW ÆON?
THE term “New Age” was restricted, until the late 1960s, to a
relatively narrow group of people, although the New Aeon concept has
been present in esoteric circles from the beginning of the Twentieth
Century. The popular culture of the 1960s brought the idea into
focus for large numbers of people, which have continued to increase.
One of the first ventures beyond the immediate confines of the occult
movement (which had a hard core of mere hundreds) was in Guy Warren
Ballard’s I AM movement. The term I AM became, for many years, a
kind of “cipher signal” held in common by those ‘in the know’ about
the New Age movement. In the 1960s, the term I AM began to be
replaced by the metaphysical cipher WE ARE ONE.
Both terms can be linked, through New Aeon Qabalistic Cipher, to
FRATER ACHAD = 117 = CLEAR LIGHT. The Value 117 also
makes specific reference to the predictions in The Book of the Law,
which was dictated at the very dawn of the New Aeon, that C.S. Jones
(Frater Achad, or Frater Parzival) would provide the key to decoding
FRATER ACHAD = 117 = A FEAST FOR A-L-W (the first three
letters of the code); LETTERS; ORDER & VALUE; NEW SYMBOLS and I WHO
SHALL SAY “NOT”. The word “NOT” is a major key to the cipher.
The other magical name or motto mentioned, FRATER PARZIVAL (the name
Jones used as an O.T.O. member and eventual chief), has a value of
FRATER ACHAD = 117 = CLEAR LIGHT.

of the incident of the Burning Bush.

“God said to Moses, “Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh.”
“Thus shall you speak to the Israelites: ‘Ehyeh’ sent me to you.”
“This mysterious and numinous phrase has puzzled scholars for
generations. The phrase is translated variously as I AM THAT I AM, I
AM WHO I AM, I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE, etc."
Whatever it means, and
the JPS Hebrew-English translation leaves it untranslated, I AM is
the standard translation, and the phrase that became the New Age
“cipher key” in Ballard’s movement.
It is rumored that Ballard’s son
Mark, who virtually disappeared during a period of legal trouble for
his father, resurfaced as the famous trance channel Mark Prophet,
one of the key players in the modern “New Age” movement.
I AM = 45 = NOT. I AM was replaced by the phrase WE ARE ONE = 112 =
WHO AND WHAT I AM. It is also the value of Ballard’s student George
Williamson’s magical name MARK III. WE ARE ONE also equals WORD OF
THE LAW. NEW AGE = 79 = WILL KEY.
“Will” or, more properly the Greek
form, “Thelema” is the Word of the Law of the New Aeon.
NEW AGE = 79

ENOCH AND MUTAN MION
“By using a collection of

Crowley, was not the first magical cipher or system developed in the
In 1581, Dr.
John Dee and Edward Talbott, who took the last name
“Kelly” as they began their work together, conducted a long series
of Magical Workings which produced intense and detailed
communication with Ultraterrestrial Intelligences of a high order. A
language, cosmology (scheme of the universe) and a (now lost) set of
practical instructions emerged, which foreshadowed the New Aeon
Cipher, just as the Enochian ‘language’ echoed earlier Rosicrucian
Three hundred years later the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn,
organized by High Grade Freemasons associated with John Yarker and
Kenneth Mackenzie and their esoteric approach to the Mysteries, took
up the Enochian work as part of their late-Victorian “magical
The English magick of the culturally rich Elizabethan Era
was to an extent perfected in the equally fertile Victorian Age.
What developed was a reconstituted and perfected version of Dee and
Kelly’s partially lost practical system of instruction for
contacting Ultraterrestrial Entities, and for ‘astral’ travel
(sometimes physical travel) to other celestial spheres (or
“planets”) called “Aethyrs” or “Aires” of the Universe.
When Aleister Crowley, still rather fresh from the dictation of
The Book of The Law, took up the exploration of the Enochian Aethyrs in
1909, he did so not far from the home of Max Theon, then himself
taking the dictation of The Cosmic Philosophy associated with the
Hermetic Brotherhood of Light he had once headed.
These unique ethereal communications ended for Theon shortly
thereafter with the untimely death of his wife, the gifted trance
medium Alma Ware.
Crowley worked in these sessions with his disciple
Victor Neuburg. Having done some preliminary workings during his
active period in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1900,
Crowley produced a truly remarkable document of Communication with
Higher Intelligences, that is, Ultraterrestrial Contacts - and
Travel to Other Realms.
The Vision And The Voice in his
famous journal, The Equinox, it ranks as world-class mystical
literature with methodical notes on the ceremonial methods used
which could be reproduced by any dedicated experimenter - though, it
is true, not without some risk.
The implication here should not be underestimated; in fact there is
good reason to believe that the 13th Enochian Aethyr, called “ZIM”
transports the scryer directly to the Sirius planetary system, where
one can meet the Oannes, or NOMMO as
the Dogon (“people of the fish
god Dagon”) call him, under the name NEMO.
This scientific methodology approaching mystical phenomena was in
keeping with Crowley’s philosophy of “Scientific Illuminism” -
described uniquely as ‘the aim of religion, the method of science’.
The “Enochian Universe” consists of Thirty ‘Aethyrs’ or ‘Worlds’
each quite unique and inhabited by quite different entities.
Through a Ritual Opening of the Portal of the Adepti and the
recitation of certain Enochian “Keys” or “Calls,” any specific Aethyr
can be reached, and the contactee can interact with the inhabitants
and function within the rarified environment.
In 1991-92, the present writer organized and conducted a series of
30 experiments with this very system, one each week over a thirty
week period. This was preceded by two instructional Intensives
devoted to educating prospective participants on the Enochian System
of Contacting the Ultraterrestrials at various levels.
I took upon myself the Induction, but deliberately selected a number
of relative novices for my ‘seers’ or
In this way any
results would be relatively untainted by preexisting knowledge of
what to ‘expect’. Due precautions were taken, but every one of the
twenty or so participants (some of whom came and went as the long
and challenging series of workings ran their incredible course) were
told that this was, truly, Risky Business.
The results were quite spectacular, by anyone’s account. Conducted
under the auspices of a Major Lodge of one of the Great Magical
Orders of Antiquity, in the fashionable Temple located in a historic
and elegant building mostly tenanted by a number of holistic health
practitioners and environmental groups, every single amateur
contactee was successfully propelled by us into the targeted
‘Aethyr’ or specific Ultraterrestrial Sphere I invoked, met with and
had communication with the Entities or Forces of that realm, and
In the process, eerie physical effects were frequently, almost
routinely produced. On one occasion, at the critical moment of
closure electrical power failed not only in the building but for a
block in either direction from the Temple. Casual participants and
hardened veterans alike sometimes saw Entities physically appear
within the Temple during sessions, although all doors and windows
were locked from the inside and monitored by my assistants and
Some effects were ‘picked up’ by tenants in the building who
were totally unaware of the Ceremonies, and sensitives several miles
distant spontaneously and accurately sometimes ‘picked up on’ peak
Uncannily, a recap at the conclusion of each session revealed a
startling degree of correlation with the experiences recorded by
Crowley for the same Aethyr in 1909.
Although my amateur contactees (“scryers” or “seers”) were not
particularly learned regarding such matters (they did not, in fact,
even know one another very well for the most part), the parallel was
so close at times that I resorted to switching scryers at the last
minute for a particular session in case someone was ‘boning up’ on a
particular Aethyr. It made no difference in the result.
Sometimes two contactees “co-scryed” the same Aethyr, interacting
with one another rather like astronauts on the lunar surface or in
space, as well as with the denizens of the Aire being traveled to. I
had maintained substantial control throughout, acting as a kind of
guardian. On one memorable occasion the contactee being in some difficulty,
I took a (quite physical) consecrated magical tool (a sword, as it
happens), and handed it “up” to the scryer, who was quite able to
perceive, grasp and use it to unravel her predicament with it.
was clearly a direct interaction between one plane or dimension of
existence and another on an intentional basis. But, unlike in many
UFO Abduction episodes, my scryer and I were calling the shots.
I realized that what we were utilizing here was something in the way
of an ages-old “ritual technology” for producing human-alien
contact. The ancient Priestesses of Delphi used such a technique,
and the modern RA Material produced by the Kentucky-based contactee
Lightlines group, centered around
Carla Rueckert and the late Don
Elkins, had been doing much the same thing when they would take
perfectly ordinary people and, applying their own metatechnology,
produce communication with the same group of Entities, even though
they were careful to isolate one contactee from another.
I did not, then, “need” a talented medium like Mark Probert or
Richard Shaver to produce meaningful results. Nor did I approach
these Entities with undue reverence. In fact, assisted by an
Ordained Exorcist, I routinely ended each session with a full scale
Again, and this is very important, unlike the Adamski-type contacts,
the place and time of contact was under our control, not Theirs.
(This is aside from the question of whether classical contacts were
in some sense ‘guided’ by a “secret magician” - in the case of Adamski, perhaps George Hunt Williamson.)
This was human over alien,
not the other way around.
Dee and Kelly had not been so lucky, back in Elizabethan England.
Dr. Dee started out as a distinguished scholar in a world peopled by
Bacon, Shakespeare, and the savants who gave us the King James
translation of the Bible. Dee’s library was eventually looted by a
mob and partially destroyed.
Kelly, for his part, contacted the Forces of the Seventh Enochian
Aethyr, encountering an entity that sent him running forever from
scrying, taking with him the pitiful remnant of Dee’s
once-considerable fortune…and Dee’s wife. He disappeared into
oblivion. A somewhat similar occurrence ended the famous “The Babalon Working” of John W. Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard in the 1940s.
claimed, after opening a Star Gate, that “BABALON is now incarnate
on the earth in the form of a mortal woman.”
Hubbard went on to
develop the influential Church of Scientology.
What Kelly encountered in the Seventh Aethyr, known as “DEO” - was a
female entity associated with Venus and the Tarot Card called “The
Star.” This Arcanum, of unknown antiquity, usually depicts a nude
woman next to a body of water with a
blazing star overhead.
This, originally, referred to Sirius, which
is similarly depicted in bas reliefs from the ancient Sumerian-Babylonian
civilization, and the semi-aquatic nature of the Visitors ‘from’ the
Sirius system called “Oannes”.
The Star Gate “Scrying Table” of Dee and Kelly served as a portal to
Modern experiments reproduce these results.
In whatever event, the Lady, spectacularly erotic and “beyond good
and evil” (that is, beyond Duality) in a way totally unpalatable
even to a rogue like Kelly in the time of Elizabeth I or King James,
“…I am Understanding, and science dwelleth in me; and the
heavens oppress me. They come and desire me with infinite appetite;
for none that are earthly have embraced me, for I am shadowed with
the Circle of Stars, and covered with the morning clouds.”
Phrases such as “the heavens oppress me” in this instance, or “I
come from a country much weaker than your own” in the INDRID COLD
close encounter case, are generally made by entities from worlds
which have been conquered by the
Gray Aliens, unlike the Earth.
Kelly ran, in terror and without understanding.
Crowley, scrying the
same Aethyr on December 7, 1909 in the Algerian Desert, described
“…the Daughter of the King. This is the Virgin of Eternity.
This is she that the Holy One hath wrestled from the Giant Time, and
the prize of them that have overcome Space.”
Even Crowley could
almost not bear the intensity of the contact.
All of this closely parallels an episode in the short novel
published by Ray Palmer in Amazing Stories in March, 1945. “I
Remember Lemuria” launched the late Richard Shaver’s remarkable
career as a mystic seer in the totally inappropriate context of a
science fiction pulp magazine.
Shaver’s protagonist was Mutan Mion, an antediluvian hero of Inner
Earth in the last thrashings of any kind of real civilization. Mutan
Mion goes to visit the highest ranking NORTAN he can reach, the
Nortans being the most ancient of space faring races who live in
Deep Space away from the detrimental radiation of all Stars, in a
state of virtual endless growth and near immortality.
“We were drawn as by a powerful magnet toward a huge figure which was
an intense concentration of all vitally stimulating qualities that
make beauty the sought-for thing that it is...
“All of eighty feet tall she must have been. She towered over our
heads as she arose to greet us, a vast cloud of the glittering hair
of the Nor women floating about her head, the sex aura a visible
iridescence flashing about her form.
“I yearned toward that vast beauty which was not hidden for in,
it is considered impolite to conceal the body greatly, being an
against art and friendship, to take beauty out of life...”
Compare this to Crowley’s Algerian vision of the Being of the 9th
Aethyr (December 7, 1909):
“And this palace is nothing but the body of a woman . . .
“It is impossible to say anything about her. She is naked; her whole
body is covered with fine gold hairs, that are the electric flames
that are the spears of mighty and terrible Angels whose breastplates
are the scales of her skin. And the hair of her head, that flows down
to her feet, is the very light of God himself.”
Crowley is eventually shown into what he calls a ‘tower’by an

“furnished with maps of

gives light by jetting four columns of vortex rings of luminous
The ‘tower’ is some kind of spire or turret, the ‘chamber’
some kind of alcove or containment. The description given is,
however, bizarrely similar to that given by modern contactees of the
interior of so-called ‘space ships’.
Crowley’s perception seems, on
balance, far closer to the actual nature of the ‘place’.
all the more plausible when we take cognizance of Crowley’s vision,
six days earlier in the same location, in the 15th Aethyr:
behold! there is one God therein, and the letters of the stars in
his crown, Orion, and the Pleiades, and Aldebaran, and Alpha
Centauri, and Cor Leonis, and Cor Scorpionis, and Spica, and the
pole-star, and Hercules, and Regulus, and Aquila, and the Ram’s Eye.
“And upon a map of stars shalt thou draw the sigil of that name; and
because also some of the letters are alike, thou shalt know that the
stars also have tribes and nations...”
It should be well noted that
the 15th through the 1st Aethyr of the Enochian System are linked,
according to Crowley’s experiences, by the being Nemo.
The English language based Cipher of the UFOnauts is less helpful
here than usual. This seems to be the realm of Enochian and earlier
But, nonetheless, keeping in mind the cipher qabalistic principles are the same in all contexts, and with a nod
to Shaver’s MANTONG concept (English is a bastardized reinvention of
the primal language of the Universe, called “Mantong”), we note that

that of AIWASS, the intelligence which dictated The Book of the Law

opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

great deal is written - though mostly in obscure sources concerning
the legendary founding of an Ultraterrestrial beach head on the
Earth in early Sumerian times by the fish-like (and man like) being
from Sirius, the Oannes.
There is even some public speculation on
the establishment of a Priestly caste, in Babylonia, India and
Egypt, devoted to maintaining secret knowledge of this contact, and
perhaps maintaining the contact thorough all of subsequent history..
Whether such contact is for good or ill depends upon who you read.
The proMasonic writers tend to consider this a golden secret carried
forward by the Knights Templar, founded by Hugh de Paynes and eight
other French crusaders in 1118.
After enjoying prosperity and the
patronage of Catholic Europe for some time, the Order was brutally
suppressed by Church and State, but survived, according to Masonic
legend, in Scottish Rite Freemasonry after the burning of the last
Grand Master Iacobus Burgundus Molanus (I.B.M.) and many of his
followers outside of Scotland.
The Templars were charged with the
secret worship of a half human, half beast called “Baphomet” which
some spiritual descendants embrace, while other deny vehemently.
Most tend to take on the patronage of St.John the Baptist, whose
feast day, June 24th, is the old Feast of Oannes, as well as
International Flying Saucer Day, in honor of Kenneth Arnold’s
encounter on June 24th, 1947 with nine saucer-like objects.
Some of the properties -and members -of the Templar Order were taken
over by the rival Order of the Knights Hospitaller, otherwise known
as the Knights of Rhodes, after their conquest, in 1308 under Fulke
de Villaret, of the Island of Rhodes from the Moslems. They are
known more familiarly, and in a somewhat sinister context, as the
Knights of Malta, to which island they retreated after the Moslems
Under that name, in modern times, they have been
accused of exercising great influence over governments in Christian
countries, and have been associated in contemporary conspiracy
literature with the
Trilateral Commission, the
Club of Rome, and the leadership of the crusade against
Communism which dominated Western Political Thought from the end of
World War Two until the breakup of the Soviet Empire in the 1990s.
Many of these groups, but particularly the
Knights of Malta, are
involved in privately “selling” cooperation between Ultraterrestrial
Forces of dubious motivations and Terrestrial governments and
In February of 1937, on the eve of the Second World War, a
representative of the Knights of Malta, an American (still living as
I write this in 1994), met with the more esoteric leadership of the
Third Reich in Germany. The meeting took place in a hidden SS
retreat, and was attended by General Karl Haushofer, the senior
initiate of the Black Lodge inside the German Reich.
The purpose of
the meeting was to “sell” the Nazi regime on contact with what the
young Maltese Knight called “the coming race”.
Asked by the present
writer in 1979 what he meant by the term, he told me,
“the Ultraterrestrials, of course. The Germans had noted their ‘ghost
rockets’ in Sweden, and were aware of their power. Most of the older
Nazis present, though, were former members of the
Thule Group or the
Vril Society, and took me to be talking about Tibetans or
Aryan supermen or some such bunk. Except Haushofer, who knew better,
and the ‘Man with the Green Gloves’ who, though supposedly a Tibetan
himself, was certainly an Ultraterrestrial.”
The deal fell through
when the Reich fell, and the Knights switched their attention
In the early 1950s U.S.
President Eisenhower unknowingly bought into
a similar plan proposed by the Knights of Malta to him on behalf of
their Ultraterrestrial overlords, in the name of the anticommunist
crusade of that period.
“Deviants” were rounded up, and
unprecedented power was placed in the hands of the Military
Industrial infrastructure throughout the decade, until Eisenhower,
in a surprise
farewell address, asserted his fundamental decency and
libertarian patriotism and roundly denounced the whole deal, paving
the way for the Kennedy era and a generation of progressive
The Knights of Malta briefly found themselves sudden outsiders. A
bloody worldwide orgy of assassinations and murders of progressive
political and moral leaders quickly followed, and by the 1980s the
U.S Administration was safely in the hands of an aged ex-actor with
degenerative Alzheimer’s Disease surrounded by a staff nearly totally
dominated by members of the Knights of Malta. By the 1990s the
anticommunist pretense could be dropped, the confused and restless
citizenry disarmed, and the feeble opposition which remained could
be easily coopted.
But what of the occult societies that had carried the flame for
centuries? What of the UFOlogy, conspiracy theory, metaphysical, and
‘White Lodge’ Masonic groups?
The Knights of Malta’s viewpoint infiltrated organized occultism and
UFOlogy through the connection between William Dudley Pelley’s
pro-Nazi Silver Shirts prior to World War Two, and the occult Black
Lodge within the Third Reich, centered in the SS, the Ahnenerbe
Society, and the appropriately named “Black Order” - descended from
such black magical bodies as the Thule Group and the Vril Society as
detailed in Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts.
Pelley and his outfit were
certainly tools for the Maltese Knights, and key figures in UFOlogy
became involved, including George Adamski and George Hunt
Williamson. Adamski was introduced to Williamson by Pelley, at a
time when Adamski was trying to sell his contact story as science fiction
to Ray Palmer, then a prominent publisher.
These initiates, not including the
well-meaning Adamski, were knowledgeable about the
Ultraterrestrial cipher, the Sirius-Oannes legend, etc.
Interestingly, they were met with a spirited libertarian resistance
from the very start by Meade Layne of Borderland Sciences, and his
immediate successor, the late Riley Crabb, who ‘blew the whistle’ on
the interaction between the U.S. Government, the Knights of Malta
and Ultraterrestrials since at least 1954.
Layne was a True Adept,
himself knowing the Ultraterrestrial Cipher and using it to make
contacts of his own. Bill Webb of QBLH, an occult body that has done
a great deal to reveal the Cipher to a broader public, recalled to
us how Layne would visit him in Arizona in the 1950s, on his way to
purported UFO landing sites. Webb, like Layne, had been a member of
Dion Fortune’s Inner Light offshoot of the Golden Dawn.
way of using the Cipher was to read published reports of alien
encounters, such as those of Dan Fry, Truman Bethurum and Orfeo
Angelucci, convert the planetary and personal names given by
Ultraterrestrials to contactees to cipher, and infer where the next
landing was going to occur. This seems to have been the HIDDEN
PURPOSE of those high profile cases; to get publicized, so that
scattered adepts in possession of the cipher would know where and
when to make contact.
Ironically, Layne was so advanced that his sincere but less
initiated successor Crabb was afraid of him, and would actually do
ritual exorcisms of the BSRF once on Adams Avenue in San Diego after
Layne’s departure, according to what I have been told by BSRF’s
present leader, former Michael Bertiaux student Tom Brown.
In the meantime, after 1952 the CIA actively sought to infiltrate and
disrupt private UFO groups. I was told by Major Dewey Fornet, the
one-time Pentagon Monitor for the Air Force UFO Project, that the
UFO wave in the Summer of 1952 during the exceptionally hot ‘dog
days’ of July, completely overwhelmed the U.S. Defense system of
those relatively technologically unsophisticated times. While UFOs
were‘ dog’ fighting with jets and being spotted on radar in
restricted air space over the White House and Pentagon,
communication channels were so jammed that a ‘sneak attack’ by a
more terrestrial enemy (i.e., the Soviet Union) would have gotten
through virtually unopposed in the UFO generated confusion.
that, the CIA determined to discredit the whole subject in earnest.
A major attempt to set up a civilian National Investigations
Committee on Aerial Phenomena was quickly coopted by the
intelligence community, and many of the group’s leaders were
military and intelligence personnel, including Director Major Donald Keyhoe’s classmate from the Naval Academy and one-time CIA Director,
Most of the ‘official sounding’ UFO groups of
that period are now dead. Curiously, the survivors include the very
independent S.A.U.C.E.R.S. of Jim Moseley, and the now fifty year old
In its early days BSRF was closely associated with the group
of sixteen high adepts or Ascended Masters called The Inner Circle,
otherwise known as The Guardians. 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.

HOW TO OPEN - OR CLOSE A STAR GATE
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
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
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
1. Charles Wyclifie Goodwin’s translation of the ancient papyrus was
published in 1852 as “Fragment of Greco-Egyptian Work Upon Magic.”
Wallis-Budge reprinted it at the turn of the twentieth century in
Egyptian Magic, and the Golden Dawn began using it as the “Bornless
One” ritual shortly before. The Greek original was recently reprinted
in the outstanding definitive edition of Book Four edited by Hymenaeus
Beta. Crowley certainly worked on the ritual for a number of years,
terming it “…the most helpful and exalted of all magical
instructions” in his autobiography. Crowley approached the matter
imperfectly (his own assessment) in The Equinox Volume I Number
VIII. His perfected version, Liber Samekh, Theurgia Goetia Summa (Congressus
Cum Daemone) Sub Figura DCCC was presented to one of his key
students at the Abbey of Thelema in1921. It remains an instructional
document of the A. A. to the present day, and, as such, may
rest safely upon its stand-alone great merit.
In more recent times we have learned a great deal more about the
literature of the period following the conquest by Alexander the
Great. Alexander, let us remember, was heir not only to the
thousands of years of Egyptian occultism, but the similar traditions
in Babylon and India, which nations he also conquered.
This ritual dates, therefore, at least to the last days of Egypt,
but probably reflects an ancestry thousands of years earlier in
Sumer and India.
Popularly known as “The Bornless One” ritual, the title has been
variously translated. The literal meaning is something like “The
Headless One” but probably carries more the sense of either “the One
Without Beginning” (“head” in the languages of this region often
means beginning) or possibly “the one without a human head”.
The basic ritual, as translated (or interpreted) in The Golden Dawn,
is intriguing enough in and of itself.
After some ritual
preliminaries, the Celebrant (a Zelator Adeptus Minor), aspiring to
the ‘higher Genius’ says, facing East:
Thee I invoke the Bornless One. Thee that didst create the Earth and
the Heavens. Thee that didst create the Night and the Day. Thee that
didst create the Darkness and the Light. Thou art Osorronophris,
whom no man hath seen at any time. Thou art Iabas. Thou art Iapos.
Thou hast distinguished between the Just and the Unjust. Thou dist
make the female and the male. Thou didst produce the Seed and the
fruit. Thou didst form men to love one another and to hate one
I am [name and grade] of the Order of the R.R. et A.C., thy Prophet
unto whom Thou didst commit Thy Mysteries, the ceremonies of the
Magic of Light. Thou didst produce the moist and the dry and that
which nour-isheth all created things. Hear me Thou. For I am the
Angel of Paphro Osoronophris. This is Thy true Name, handed down to
the Prophets of the Sun.
What follows are ceremonial vibration of what are called “barbarous
names” - largely meaningless words not unlike the “funny names”
associated with contacteeism, mediumship and the lore of the Secret
Our interest is immediately aroused. Though “The Bornless
One” (or “The One Without Human Head”) is an old ritual, with words
far older than the English, as we have established, the Cipher Rules
of Qabalistic analysis were in use with earlier codes used by
Ultraterrestrials and Human Adepts long before the rise of modern
English speaking cultures.
But there is more.
Aleister Crowley rewrote the ritual again in the
early 1920s, under the name “Liber Samekh”, apparently primarily to
‘correct’ the strange nonsense words “with the significance of the
BARBAROUS NAMES Etymologically or Qabalistically determined and
paraphrased in English”.
Since this was the period just after
Achad’s Book 31, the “key” to The Book of the Law, and following
Crowley’s main contacts with high-level Ultraterrestrial Chiefs
including Aiwaz or Aiwass, Lam, Amalantrah and Abuldiz, such
alterations might be expected to restore the old ritual to something
of its Ultraterrestrial origin, and so it does.2
2. “The research community has consistently failed to address the
real issues posed by flying saucers, which relate not to
propulsion systems, aerodynamics and the like, but to the human
psycheandthe magical currents that inform it.” -Alec Hidell in
Chronicles of the Grey Lodge
When the UFOnaut Cipher is applied to all of the “barbarous names”
revised them in 1921, all but one of them produces the same values
as the names given in
modern Ultraterrestrial contactee cases,
occult Secret Chiefs, starry wisdom, or Crowley’s own contacts with
higher beings, in some readily obvious combination.
The entire argument for the Aleister Crowley (Thelemic) Canon is
based upon contact with discarnate intelligences of unknown
provenance. Crowley himself is quite clear upon this matter in a
postscript of a letter to a student written in the mid-1940s,
Magick Without Tears as “Do You Believe In God?”
some of the Crowlean establishment exhibits remarkable resistance to
any attempts to link Crowley’s communications to the whole modern
literature of trance channeling and contactism. This is true of the
Seth materials, as well as the more outré
experiences of Rex and Ray Stanford or the late George Hunt Williamson.
This tendency reflects nothing so much as,
“… a priori
fallacies full of ignoratio elenchi, non distributio medii, non
sequitur, and sometimes sheer Hobson Jobson,” as Aleister Crowley
put it himself.
To those few of us trained in both occultism and UFO lore over many
years, the parallels are remarkable. If nothing else, we deal here
with similarly constituted mythologies.
While I have no doubt that
there is a most special quality in The Book of the Law, it
diminishes it not at all to note that its advent was under similar
circumstances to the dictation of OAHSPE a few years earlier, The
Cosmic Philosophy of Max Theon contemperaneously, and
Material in more recent years. Quite the contrary, in fact.
notion that such association somehow diminishes the “respect” the
occult is accorded in the public mind betrays a true disconnection
with general convictions; far more people in industrialized
countries are apt to credit the UFO phenomenon than occultism, as
major pollsters have noted for many years. The Yankelovich Partners
conducted a survey on behalf of LIFE Magazine January 12-13, 2000.
They found that:
30% of Americans believe extraterrestrials have
visited the Earth
1% claimed alien contact
6% claimed to know
someone in contact with aliens!
6% claimed to have seen UFOs
thought UFOs were real (a plurality - 42% did not think so)
STARTLING NUMBERS FROM A MYTHIC STANDPOINT, IF NOTHING ELSE. IT
AMOUNTS TO SAYING THAT NEARLY 3 MILLION AMERICANS CLAIMED UFO BEING
CONTACT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 21ST CENTURY!
The most recent
scientific panel on UFOs, in fact, convened by the Society for
Scientific Exploration in 1997,concluded that,
“there may be more to
UFO evidence than just verbal reports of what people seeing in the sky.
Some UFO evidence may be worthy of scientific investigation.”

should examine the relation, for example, between the image of the
mysterious being called “Aiwass” as seen by Crowley in 1904:
seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and
strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their
gaze should destroy what they saw,”
...and Malcolm X’s 1949 vision of
the also mysterious Wallace Fard:
“He wasn’t black, and he wasn't
white. He was light-brown-skinned, an Asiatic cast of
countenance, and he had oily black hair.”
Or that Crowley’s rather
well-known sketch of
the being Lam resembles anticipates, in fact -
headed beings described in many more recent UFO Abduction Cases.
This does not denigrate Crowley’s work, but it does place it in the
context of the mythos of our times, which, to my mind, enhances its
To this I must add the foot note, meaning no personal disrespect to
any parties who might identify themselves with this critique, that
I personally know a number of highly placed, competent and erudite
champions of magick and mysticism who are almost entirely uninformed
on the subjects of UFOlogy and Forteana, and the lore of
spiritualism, trance channeling and the contactee subculture that has
developed over the last hundred years.
The author of this volume has
spent some thirty five years studying these phenomena, both in terms
of the literature and inextensive field research efforts. I have spent
nearly as long a time in the study of magick, mysticism and
parapsychology. My challenge to those skeptical of the linkage
between these fields on either side of the question is to cross
reference with some diligence before dismissing what, for some of us,
is obviously a part of one continuum.
For example, in the core ritual given above, the phrases,
“Thou art Osorronophris, whom no man hath seen at any time. Thou art Iabas.
Thou art Iapos,”
...becomes, in Crowley’s version,
“Thou art ASAR UN-NEFER
(“Myself made Perfect”): Whom no man has seen at any time. Thou art
IA-BESZ (“the truth of the matter”). Thou art IA-APOPHRASZ (“the
Truth in Motion”).”
These yield the values in NAEQ6 of 144, or STAR
KNOWLEDGE, 82 or A LEAGUE, and 114, or THE NAME, a standard Hebrew
euphemism for the unutterable four-fold name of Deity. (It also has
the same value as our “old friend” from the Mark Probert channelings,
Keeping in mind that the latter, which I once termed “the silliest
of the silly names” refers to one of Sixteen Transtemporal Ascended
Human Adepts who form A LEAGUE called the Guardians of Humanity
outside of Time and Space in the contacts of Probert some decades
after Crowley’s revisions, and that Probert worked with Meade Layne,
a one-time adept of a rival body to Crowley’s A. A., descended from
the Golden Dawn, we read this as,
“Thou art STAR KNOWLEDGE, whom no
man hath seen at any time. Thou art of A LEAGUE. Thou art THE NAME.
Thou art PROTECTOR OF EARTH.”
(“Maharaja Natcha” may also be decoded
as the less humorous “of the Sixteen Protectors of Earth” because of
the double name’s cipher values 114 = THE NAME).
The intriguing phrase,
“Hear me Thou. For I am the Angel of Paphro
Osoronophris. This is Thy true Name, handed down to the Prophets of
...in the Golden Dawn version becomes, for Crowley,
Thou Me, for I am the Angel of PTAH-APOPHRASZ-RA: this is Thy True
Name, handed down to the Prophets of KHEM.”
Now PTAH-APO-PHRASZ-RA has the value 158, or that of Crowley’s own
major Ultraterrestrial contacts AMALANTRAH & ABULDIZ, but why does
he switch the phrase “Prophets of the Sun” - a phrase consistent
with Crowley’s own philosophy, for “Prophets of KHEM” with the
capitalization in the original?
Khem is an early name for Egypt, but
its value in the UFOnaut cipher is 59, that of BRAHMA.
If we recall
that, in the Hindu mythos, the sky god Brahma rides a ‘swan’ which
makes the sound “Aum”, both the change in “The Bornless One” ritual,
and Crowley’s mysterious advice on keeping a personal magical book
quoted at the beginning of this section begin to make sense.
“Let the pen with which the writing is done be the feather of
a young male swan - that swan whose name is Aum. And let the ink be
made of the gall of a fish, the fish Oannes.”
The name of that book is
given as “Thelema,” or “Will”. All of this tells us that Crowley
certainly was privy to the legend of the “fish god” of Sirius,
Oannes, the originator of writing, flying from the heavens in a
bird-like vehicle making a strange humming sound.
Some of the more interesting “barbarous words” offered by Crowley:
“Thoron” is an anagram; it could be made out as “Jesus beware” as
well, but, also, the mantram for calling UFOs only recently received
by a modern contactee, SOLIM SOLARA.
The whole term DIATHARNA (86)
THORON (68) is of exceptional interest in our quest. The reversal of
numbers 86 & 68 is probably a Cipher “Flag” to initiates to pay
special attention. We can nevertheless become quite impressed with
its depth, especially as it shows up ONLY in connection with
Crowley’s version with the words “corrected”.
SOTHIS FISH MAN, or fish-being
of Sirius is one cipher meaning of DIATHARNA THORON, as is the
related FISH MAN JESUS (recalling the original association between
Jesus, John and immersion in water). TITAN CRAFT is another meaning.
We find names familiar from the modern contactee lore:
ASALON-AI = 54
= CARL ARDO
AEOOU = 57 = BALORAN
ISCHURE = 99 = GREGORNO
76 = KIMI
BAS-AUMGN = 90 = GARCIA SAI
SABRIAM = 83 = FIRKON, etc.
Lest anyone think this forced or coincidental, keep in mind that
this comes from a standardized list of ONLY ABOUT THIRTY of the most
common contact names, most of them listed as such in The Revolt of
the Free, pp 105-107.
Virtually all of them show up. But, for
occultists, most interesting is the name “FF” having the value 36 = AIWAZ, the original name for what Crowley called, “mine own guardian
In the text of
Liber Samekh, Crowley simply wrote FF,
Angel! Mine initiator! Thou one with me - the Sixfold Star!”.

9 - THE EGYPTIAN CONNECTION
“The spirit of ancient Egypt lay over all the land, tremendous in
the dawn. The sunrise summoned her. She lay prostrate before the deity. The shadows of the
towering Colossi lay prostrate
too. The little humans, with their worshiping and conquered hearts,
lay deep within them.”
A Descent into Egypt
THE Priesthoods of ancient Babylon and of Egypt had a fascination
with the stars, the Sun and Moon, and the cycles of the sky that is
linked directly to their mythologies.
Explanations dismissing all
such interests as concerns with agricultural cycles tend to pale
with recent discoveries. For example, in discussing Judaic-Essene
time considerations at the time of Jesus, Dr. Barbara Thiering of
the University of Sydney observes,
“Terms with an apparent vague
meaning are, in fact, precise indicators of time... The very close
study of the chronology shows that there are terms indicating not
only years, seasons, months and days, but hours and even minutes...
The members of the community were, in fact, astronomers, spending
much of their exile in close study of accurate ways of measuring
Why the need for such precision?
Babylonian monuments frequently depict local monarchs conversing
with beings that are fish-like and humanoid all at once, with the
image of the Star Sirius hovering overhead. The constellation Canus
Major, the “Great Dog”, the principal star of which is the ‘dog
star’ Sirius was, for the Egyptians, the most important
constellation in the sky, upon which they oriented their Temples.
These ancient structures were designed to catch the light of Sirius
so that it would shine upon the altar at the star’s rising and
setting. The gods and teachers of old, ancient even to the ancients,
were said to be semi-aquatic beings from the heavens, the precursors
of civilization and the originators of writing, technology and,
indeed, of their very social order.
Much has been written (but, perhaps, not enough) about the unusual
devotion of the ancients to the Star Sirius, and there are vestiges
in North African mythology of a knowledge of the binary nature of
the Sirius system which should not have been known before very
recent times, if conventional history is correct.
The ciphers and rituals given by the Ultraterrestrial Visitors to
early initiates have been modified and blurred with time, but a
remarkable amount of continuous, intact tradition has survived in
the world of alchemy, occultism and freemasonic ritual.
system of magick is an obvious example of a linguistic and ritual
The “Solar Secret” of freemasonry shows a continuity of
sky deity ideas, but can readily be rationalized as a survival of an
agricultural society’s understandable preoccupation with seasonal events. Their lives depended on knowing when to
sow and when to harvest. But hours? Minutes?
The fascination and
myths associated with such stars and star configurations as the
galactic star cluster called “The Pleiades” or “the Seven Sisters”
or Sirius or Orion, from Egypt to Arizona are more peculiar.

10 - THE ULTRATERRESTRIAL ORIGIN OF THE MASONIC FRATERNITY
number of authorities, including Tau Michael Bertiaux, a Conservator
of one branch of the Old Rite, have suggested that the Egyptian Rite
of Freemasonry (Ritus Memphis et Misraim, or Rite of the ancient
city of Memphis in Egypt) is actually a secret store house of UFO
Kenneth Mackenzie’s 1877 catalogue of “the latest form” of
the Rite of Memphis lists the 63° as “Adept of Sirius” but by the
time of the distinguished Grand Master John Yarker’s last revision
of the Rite, ADEPT OF SIRIUS had been mysteriously omitted in favor
of SUBLIME KAWI (63°).
In the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts, SUBLIME
KAWI has the same cipher value (149) as the more elaborate degree
which immediately follows it, the 63rd, or SAGE OF MYTHRAS. The Word
of the SUBLIME KAWI degree, interestingly, is “Krishna” - the name
of a blue-skinned sky god who, according to the Hindu religious
tradition, incarnated in a teaching role upon Earth.
Degree, or “Knight of the Temple” is a correlative of the ADEPT OF
SIRIUS Degree. Its secret Password is, in fact, “Sirius” or “Dog
Star” answered by “Sothis” another name for Sirius.
But, what does the substitution mean? Does the ADEPT OF SIRIUS
Degree contain a clue to the great arcane tradition of the
connection between Adepts and Ultraterrestrials?
In the New Aeon Cipher, we discover that ADEPT OF SIRIUS carries the
significant cipher value of 192. Scanning our personal cipher
directory, The Book of the Law and other New Aeon Holy Texts, we find
that 192 = FOR THE STARS AND TWO. Sirius is a double star, the
smaller white dwarf twin invisible to the ancients but known to the Bambera, Dogon, Bozo, Bandiagara and perhaps other North African
tribal peoples even today.
At least some of these peoples are of
Libyan Garamantes, or Greco-Berber descent, and thus connected to
ancient Greek, Egyptian and Babylonian tradition.
The number 192,
“ADEPT OF SIRIUS,” also yields BLUE AM I AND AN EGG (Sirius is the
most prominent blue-white star, and said to have dispatched teachers
to the Earth in luminous egg shaped craft), THE SCHEDULE FOR ALL, as
Sirius was indeed a ‘calendar star’ for the ancient Egyptians, its
helical rising being a major concern of Egyptian priest-astronomers,
marking the ‘Dog Days’ (July 3-August 11) the year’s hottest period.
The Word “Sirius” itself equals 85 or THE DOOR. ADEPT OF SIRIUS also
carries the same value as SECRET MASTER, SECRET CHIEFS and NAME THE
Curiously, in the Lexicon computer search program selected so
as to show numbers from the text of Liber AL, ADEPT OF SIRIUS = 192

Now “69” is a major key to the sexual gnosis of the Adepti (HEXAGRAM PLUNGE also carries the same
value), but it is also the glyph, or symbol for the Zodiacal Sign
“The star [Sirius],” according to Fred Gettings, “is of the
first magnitude, now in 13 degrees of Cancer…”
In ancient times
Cancer the Crab was the constellation of the Summer Solstice,
marking the ‘dog days’ associated with Sirius. Cancer is still
astrologically the Sun Sign associated with the period June 22-July
In Aleister Crowley’s incomparable table of correspondences, 777,
The Sign Cancer is associated directly with Sothis (that is, Sirius)
the Crab and Water (keeping in mind the amphibious nature attributed
to these primeval visitors), but also the Sphinx and the word
ABRAHADABRA as a magical formula, in this case the eleven-fold key
to the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts.
Sirius is, according to some
unorthodox adepts, the Silver Star which informs the Great White
Brotherhood directly. The Tarot Card known as “The Star” - and
sometimes as “The Dog Star” depicts a nude female figure with one
foot on land and the other upon water, pouring a jug of water into
the water and another upon the land. In the background are the Tree
of Life and the Tree of Knowledge, associated in ancient legend with
the Serpent of Wisdom.
Overhead is the ‘Dog Star’ Sirius and seven
smaller stars, thought to represent the traditional planets or the
“Big Dipper” in The Great Bear, but, just as likely, the Pleiades.
The amphibious Oannes from Sirius was said, like the Serpent of
Wisdom (also alluded to in the venerable card) to have brought
Knowledge to humanity.
We are informed by an old Masonic text that,
“The Masons hold their grand festival on the day of St. John, not
knowing that therein they merely signify the fish-god Oannes, the first
Hermes, and the first founder of the Mysteries…” (The name “Oannes”
relates directly to the modern name “John” - see below.)
woman is probably a reference to the naked splendor of Nuit, the sky
Goddess of the early Egyptians.
The Trees refer to a reptilian
source of knowledge, the feet and water interchanged referring to
the Ultraterrestrials’ alleged amphibious nature. While as
divinatory cards the Tarot is old but not ancient, the symbolism
closely parallels bas reliefs from ancient Babylon and Sumer,
including the peculiar depiction of Sirius itself, as the central
star in the sky from the perspective of the card.
It is strange that the Degree substituted by the late venerable
Grand Master, John Yarker, in the Egyptian System of initiation,
SUBLIME KAWI, has a value of 149 in NAEQ6, the numerical exact
equivalent of AIWASS’ law of the New Aeon, DO WHAT THOU WILT.
itself has a value of 36, the same as the variant spelling of AIWAZ
originally favored by Crowley.
The SAGE OF MYTHRAS Degree has the
same value, and includes this curious dialogue between the
Ceremonial Guard and the candidate for admission to that Degree:
Dagon, an ancient variation of Oannes.
GUARD: Thou seeist a Griffin pushing a wheel before it. What does this
CANDIDATE: I consider the Griffin to be an emblem of the Sun; and that
wheel which is parted by four spokes, represents the 4 seasons.
GUARD: And this Cross called the Diagramma?
CANDIDATE: It is formed of four (Greek letter) Gammas, joined at
and represents the apparent revolution of the Sun.
GUARD: And this figure holding forth the left hand?
CANDIDATE: It represents good-faith.
GUARD: And this semi-nude figure, with head thrown to the right?
CANDIDATE: The sun is never entirely covered at the same time to all
GUARD: Why is the hair shorn off, even to the roots?
CANDIDATE: It points out this inextinguishable star has the faculty
This dialogue, which also refers to an urn, strongly suggests the
imagery found in the Tarot Card, “The Star” (card #17) and likely
confuses our Sun (Sol, card #19) with the Star Sirius.
instructions for this degree, a sun and myrtle tree form the
background arrangement, and the number seven is a repeated motif, as
with the seven stars, also shown in the Tarot Trump.
All of this strongly suggests that the Knowledge of the Secret was,
indeed, intentionally hidden in the symbolism and structure of ‘High
Degree Freemasonry’ including the Egyptian Rite of Memphis and
Misraim, as Grand Master Michael Bertiaux has suggested.
rather lifeless system, which contained some rather interesting
Egyptian roots,” Bertiaux wrote, “was really quite remarkable. It
was the design for the computer and energy system of what we might
now be tempted to call something like a UFO object or projection
from some empirical or chaotic [occult power zone]; but, which at
that time, as strange as it might seem to the uninformed reader of
these matters, was posing rather inconspicuously as an Egyptian Rite
of Ancient Freemasonry with the name of ‘Memphis-Misraim’”.
The ‘Ultraterrestrial Connection’ with Freemasonry (and its
initiatory predecessors in the “Mystery Schools” of Ancient Times)
is nowhere clearer than in the repeated use of formal Ciphers in
Such Ciphers generally follow the ‘decoding’ rules
found for many centuries in the Qabalistic System, and seem to be
designed for simple communication between initiates, on the one
hand, but to also serve the more occult purpose of allowing “deep
agents” of Ultraterrestrial penetration into Earthly civilization to
call attention to themselves through the use of key phrases in
In Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts, I disclosed how the ancient Qabala
of Nine Chambers had been employed to develop the English-language
Cipher communicated to Royal Arch Masons in the York Rite down to
modern times. Looking again into the Ark, the High Priest takes out
four pieces of paper, which he examines closely, consults with the
King and Scribe, and then puts together, so as to show a KEY to the
ineffable characters of this Degree…
The key to the ineffable
characters, or Royal Arch Cipher… consists of right angles, in
various situations, with the addition of a dot. By transposition, it
forms twenty six distinct characters, corresponding with the twenty
six letters of the English Alphabet.
That this is built on a structure based on a Qabalistic code formed
out of the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet is both extremely
clever and indicative of a very long history. The pattern is
repeated with other Ciphers in the Masonic System.
In the 34th Degree of the Rite of Memphis, The newly made “Knight of
Scandinavia” is given a “Runic” cipher. As we show elsewhere in this
volume, this Degree is itself built around the Secret Cipher of the
UFOnauts, and is an allegory for the Visitation of Ultraterrestrial
teachers from Sirius in ancient times. Another Cipher is given in
the 64°, “Sage of Mythras” one of the oldest and most elaborate of
This cipher is similar to the Royal Arch Cipher,
and is called the “Ammanian Alphabet”. This Degree not only refers
to the origins of the Mysteries in the Ultraterrestrial
interventions here, but it contains internal evidence that the
ritual itself may be of Ultraterrestrial origin!
Part of the ritual
is conducted in the blue-white light of Sirius, and the “setting” is
as in the Tarot Card “The Star” which, as we demonstrate elsewhere,
is not our Sun, but a world beneath the Sun-star Sirius.
In the Memphis System, there are also ciphers for the 75th Degree
and the 90th Degree. The latter alludes to an ancient War between
Ultraterrestrial forces for control of the Earth.
The cipher is much
like that which generated the rituals of the Hermetic Order of the
Golden Dawn in the last century.

11 - OANNES, OR JOHN THE GOD IN FREEMASONIC LEGEND
DEEP within the bowels of Freemasonry, unknown to the vast majority
of “Blue Lodge” Free & Accepted Masons (F&AM) is a dual legend of
the origin of Freemasonry in remote antiquity.
In one version, the founder of Freemasonry is said to be the Hebrew
Patriarch Enoch, who “walked with God” and did not taste of death.
Enoch is often associated with the Great Divine Being Metatron, and,
in Elizabethan Occultism, the system of Magick and the occult cipher
which bears his name.
The legend of Enoch closely parallels the
story of the later Hebrew prophet Elijah, who was said to have been
taken alive into the Heavens in a Fiery Chariot. He is also
associated with the Babylonian astrologer Heabani, also said to have
been taken alive into the skies by the god Hea.
This legend is paralleled by another associated with a mysterious
being called “Oannes”. The historian Berosus, and later Alexander Polyhistor, described Oannes, or John as a sentient amphibious
creature which emerged from the Persian Gulf in ancient Sumer in the
daytime to teach the arts and sciences to humanity.
At sunset, he
returned to the waters of the Gulf. One may find associations with
various versions of the Jonah legend, that of the fish-god Dagon,
etc. Sumer appeared ‘out of nowhere’ about 5500 years ago in
southern Mesopotamia. No trace of their culture or unique language
have been found elsewhere. They disappeared about 4000 years ago,
having left a profound impact on Babylonia and other civilizations
in economics, the art of writing, mathematics, astronomy, legal
practices and architectural forms, as well as religion.
As noted above, one early Masonic history has it that,
hold their grand festival on the day of St. John, not knowing that
therein they merely signify the fish-god Oannes, the first Hermes, and
the first founder of the Mysteries…”
At the time the orthodox Grand
Lodge was organized in the early eighteenth century, this was
associated with St. John the Baptist and celebrated on June 24th.
Later the date was shifted, and, it appears St. John the Baptist was
supplanted by St. John the Evangelist, but John the Baptist remains
the chief patron saint of Freemasonry. The first three Degrees of
Freemasonry, known collectively as “Blue Lodge” Masonry, are also
called “Johannite Masonry” - that is, the “Masonry of John”. We find
this very revealing.
The “fish symbolism” of the
Vesica Piscis, usually translated ‘fish
bladder’ but perhaps, more accurately, ‘Vessel of the Fish’ was
incorporated into the great buildings of the Knights Templar, and
the legend of the death and rebirth of the High Priest John is
incorporated into Aleister Crowley’s play, “The Ship” - in which the
Piscis is also included.

The legend of the Oannes is discussed in connection with Sumerian
and Babylonian Sirius lore in Robert Temple’s
The Sirius Mystery,
perhaps the only literate ‘ancient astronaut’ book available.
Interestingly, Crowley, in his Qabalistic 777 Table of
Correspondences, associates “John the Baptist” (key scale 23) with
the sea gods Neptune or Poseidon, Water and the Hebrew letter Mem,
which ‘means’ (that is, represents) water.
The aquatic “god” Oannes or John seems to be the primal key to the
earliest contact between the Ultraterrestrials and human adepts.

12 - THE SIGN OF THE FISH AND THE FISH-GOD FROM SIRIUS
THE Vesica Piscis is, at once, a sign of Divinity and a sign of
“Amphibiousness”. This suggests an early origin associated with the
great Initiator, the Fish God from Sirius, known as John or Oannes.
“In Freemasonry,” Frater Achad tells us, “ Geometry is referred to
as the “first and noblest of the Sciences’’ and as “the head of all
One of the simplest figures is produced by the
intersection of two circles, thus forming what is known as the Vesica Piscis.
“The curious and marvelous properties of the Vesica Piscis and of
the Rectangle formed on its length and breadth, have been subjects
of profound speculation…”
The term means ‘fish bladder’ and was the
Sign held most sacred by the early Christians, and was the basis for
much of the Church architecture of the Gothic period.
identifies the Vesica with “the Gateway - in this case the gate of
ingress for alien forces.”
The Vesica shows up again in the
impression of the Right foot print of George Adamski’s space contact
ORTHON (Orthon has, as previously noted, the same cipher value as
Jesus), as cast by none other than the ‘secret master’ of the Adamski affair, the enigmatic occultist and UFOlogist, George Hunt
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.
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 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”.
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
Preoccupation with the apparent movements of the planets and stars
is conspicuous both among the ancient priesthoods (including some
which, like that of
the Dogon people, have survived into the present
age), and in Freemasonry.
The Candidate for the Second, or Fellow
Craft Degree (FELLOW CRAFT = 125 = SOTHIS ABLAZE) is told at his
initiation that the last seven steps leading to ‘the Middle Chamber
of King Solomon’s Temple’ represent,
“…especially, the seven liberal
arts and sciences, which are grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic,
geometry, music, and astronomy.”
These are, of course, the very arts
and sciences taught to humanity by the Gods of Sirius (Sothis) in
The candidate earlier is conducted by,
brazen pillars, one on the right and one on the left hand. The name
of the one on the left hand is Boaz, and signifies strength; the name
of the one on the right is Jachin, and denotes establishment…These
are representative of the two pillars erected at the outer porch of
King Solomon’s Temple. They are said to have been in height eighteen
cubits, twelve in circumference, and four in diameter.”
excruciatingly detailed description, the conductor points to the top
of the pillars.
“…on the top of each (is) a globe, or ball; these globes are two
artificial spherical bodies; on the convex surfaces of which are
represented the countries, seas, and various parts of the earth, the
face of the heavens, the planetary revolutions; and are said to be
thus extensive to denote the universality of Masonry.”
4:12 the spheres are described as “pommels” in the King James
Version. The Jewish Publication Society gives the same word as
“globes” but not in the modern sense of a spherical world map.)
In the York Rite version of this, one of the three most ancient
Masonic Rituals, the candidate at last arrives at the station of the
Worshipful Master in the East, and his attention is directed to a
large letter “G” suspended behind and above the Master.

seems a late addition, as, in the
Misraim (Egyptian Rite) version,
at the same moment, the Master points to a blazing star and tells
“Consider this mystic star and let its recollection
never depart from your mind. It is the emblem of that genius, which
elevates us to great things…” The great Masonic authority Albert
Pike boasted that “Sirius still glitters in our Lodges as the
We need not hesitate to subject the names of the pillars, nor of the
degree itself, nor of its password, to Qabalistic analysis, using
the Ultraterrestrial Cipher.
That such names had double or triple Qabalistic (hidden numerical) meanings was already acknowledged in
orthodox Masonic sources well over a century ago. Generally, a
Hebrew Qabala applies, but, as the spellings used here come from
traditional English language Masonic (and Elizabethan English)
usage, they may well yield to New Aeon Cipher analysis.
CRAFT = VAST SIRIUS, then the pass word, SHIBBOLETH = 134 ought to
refer in some way to a passage from that Star System to our own, and
so it does.
134 = SACRED VESSEL (the Vesica Piscis, or cigar shaped
‘fish bladder’) and THE TRUTH. The pillars are JACHIN = 71 = IS A
STAR and BOAZ = 36 = SUN.
Put together, this tells us that VAST
SIRIUS IS A SUN STAR. The dual nature of Sirius is alluded to when
we combine the cipher values of BOAZ and JACHIN or 107, the value of
TWO PALACES and THE KEYS.
That the globes of the Earth and Heavens are referred to could be
used to speak against the antiquity of this Degree. But three degree
initiatory systems certainly date from antiquity.
the Conductor dwells at such length upon these Globes (said to be
hollowed in order to conceal the archives of ancient Masonry), seems
itself to be saying something important. It is known that, in the
ancient world, there appear to have been accurate source maps of our
entire planet. These maps employ spherical trigonometry and
implicitly solve problems of latitude and longitude supposedly not
solved until relatively modern times.
The source maps were still
available in Constantinople at the time of
Piri Ibn Haji Memmed, who
drew a remarkably accurate World Map in 1513.
The source maps appear
to have been incredibly old; The Oronteus Finaeus Map of 1531 shows
Antarctica in detail, but was obviously drawn from a much earlier
root map constructed before the present ice cap overwhelmed the
Someone Knew the true nature of the Earth and the
Heavens long ago.
And, for some reason, the journeyman Mason, down
to the present moment, is shown such knowledge existed. The ancient
depiction of Oannes always show him carrying something like a globe
with a mesh suggesting latitude and longitude.
This curiosity is reinforced in a dramatic fashion in the so-called
“Higher Degrees” of Freemasonry; the ones “Regular” Freemasons don’t
want anyone to know about.

13 - “HIGHER DEGREE” FREEMASONRY AND THE ULTRATERRESTRIAL LEGEND

IT is not our task here to “prove” or “disprove” the legend of the
ancient amphibious visitors from the Star System of Sirius, but,
rather, to show that aspects of this legend have survived and
continued to motivate occult societies and Masonic fraternities over
a period of many centuries.
Further, we contend, aspects of this
mythos have been communicated in cipher form to adepts of modern
occultism, Theosophy, mediumship and UFO contacteeism down to the
The Standard Systems of Freemasonry, orthodox or not, all begin with
a Three Degree System, sometimes referred to as “The Blue Lodge”, or
Ancient Craft Masonry. As we have shown, even at this level some
aspects of the Legend survive. Beyond this, in the “Scottish Rite”
in America, an additional 30 Degrees are ofiered and are generally
accepted as “orthodox”.
Beyond the rank of Sovereign Grand Inspector
General of the 33rd Degree, there are a variety of additional
esoteric and (some say) “irregular” Degrees. In the system of the
Rite of Memphis, there are 97 Degrees in all, and many of these
contain rich evidence of a survival of the legend of Ultraterrestrial communication.
The very first of these Higher Degrees, the 34th, called “Knight of
Scandinavia,” offers the initiate a secret “Runic Cipher” of its own,
but, in its recitation of the Legend of the Norse God Odin’s quest
for knowledge, are many hints of Ultraterrestrial communication.
Odin, or Wotan in Teutonic myth, is identified with Hermes,
other sky gods who, at great cost to themselves (in some cases) come
to Earth to teach humanity the liberal arts and sciences. We again find
reference to the Tarot Card “The Hanged Man” in that the card is
sometimes associated with Odin and his doomed son, Balder. This
makes the legend yet another version of the teaching god John, or
The 34th Degree is concerned with,
“…the Sciences termed
Occult or Secret. The temple is a square; the hangings of sky blue,
sprinkled with silver stars.”
Throughout the Masonic System, the Star symbolism repeats itself
again and again.
We are told that the “Sacred Things” of this Degree will be
“by knowledge brought from Asgaard” that is, the high
abode of the gods, by “Sigge, the high priest of our all-father
Odin… He it was who established in Scandinavia the secret religious
Mysteries and appointed as their Guardian Twelve Great Pontifis.”
Fleeing the Roman General Pompeii, he initiated the Norse King Gylphi into the Mysteries.
The initiate is told that before all else there is Muspelsheim, the
That the Source was beyond our Solar System is
hinted at, in quoting the classical
“Formerly the sun Knew not his place,
The Moon was ignorant of its powers,
And the Stars Knew not their stations.”
The latter has a double meaning, because it clearly refers to
star constellations than those seen on Earth, but has a New Aeon
Cipher value of 408, the value of WORK THROUGH THE SECRET CHIEFS,
that is, the Ultraterrestrial Masters.
Further along, as the basic mythos of the Northern Peoples is
unfolded, the candidate is given to understand that creation,
including our world, is the root system of a great Tree. The many
“cities” of the heavens are described, as is the Spring of Wisdom
from which anyone who drinks is called “Nimis” or “Minis”.
Here is one of the cipher tricks which tells the initiate that this
story ties into UFOlogy and is more than a fable. Odin, who drinks
from the Spring and is thus a Nimis, has a cipher value identical
with that of Albert K. Bender’s word of power for calling his
Ultraterrestrial visitors, “Kazik”.
ODIN = 50 = KAZIK. NIMIS has a
cipher value of 86, that of TREE. Remember, the Spring is pointedly
at the base of the Great Ash Tree Ydrasil, but also, to show that
this exact same motif continues to reoccur in modern UFO contact
cases, NIMIS = 86 = SOLIM SOLARA.
Bear with me; I will explain.
In September of 1994 the present author lectured at the 31st annual
National UFO Conference on the Secret Ciphers of the UFOnauts. A
member of the audience gave me a small list of words she said she
had received in a recent UFO communication. The first was a term,
SOLIM SOLARA, which, she was told, was a “mantram to call UFOs”.
ODIN, whose ancient name is the numerical equivalent of the “calling
mantram KAZIK” (1950s), becomes a NIMIS by drinking from the Spring
of Knowledge. NIMIS is the exact numerical equivalent of SOLIM
SOLARA, a mantram given for the same purpose in the 1990s. All of
this appears in a ritual last revised in English in the year 1911.
The ritual goes on to inform the candidate that,
“there are in heaven
very many pleasant cities, and none without a divine garrison.”
The end of the world is described, after which a new civilization,
“…shall arise out of the sea, which has overwhelmed the old, another
Earth most lovely and beautiful.”
Those who survive, the candidate
is told, shall be those that “neither the flood, nor the black conflagration”
can harm, i.e. those who are space borne or amphibious in nature.
The senior initiator, termed “The Highest” now explains the reason
for this ritual mythological drama.
“There are in it,” he tells the candidate, “traces of the primeval
creed which taught that humanity arose from a marriage of Heaven and
He then creates the candidate a Knight of Scandinavia, and
gives the ritual secrets of the Degree.
The Pass Word, SIGGE, in New Aeon Cipher, has a numerical value of
75, equivalent of ORDEAL X, the Hermetic Secret Ritual for communion
with Higher Beings, mentioned in The Book of the Law, but very old
and closely associated with “The Sleep of Siloam” - the ultimate
initiation ritual of the Egyptians, a symbolic crucifixion and
It is answered by OROMAZE, meaning most pure light,
with a cipher value (81) of ALCHEMY, the secret occult science of
transmutation. ODIN, 50, or KAZIK, a word for summoning
Ultraterrestrials, is answered by AUTOPSIE (128), or SPACE SHIP (and
THE ORDEAL X).
The Pass Word of the final section, ABORIGENE (=138)
explained in the ritual text as “society without origin” is
equivalent to TITANS & ATLANS, the aboriginal inhabitants of the
Earth in the Richard Shaver mythos, to say nothing of classical
mythology. As if to show that these cipher equivalents are not
arbitrary, ABORIGENE is answered by RUROSTA, or “truth” as the
ritual text describes it, and as 78 in cipher, TRUE.
In the “Closing Conference” the meaning of the Degree is
“The will can embrace worlds and raise itself towards
Divinity…The Alchemists had analogous doctrines, they supposed that
the soul must pass through the development of the Seven planets,
before it reposed in the center of felicity.”
The clue to the real meaning of ‘passing through the development of
the Seven planets’ is found in the very Next Degree, the 35th, or
Knight of the Temple, which, we should remember, is closely
associated with the former ADEPT OF SIRIUS degree, already
Particular attention is given in this Degree to,
apparent motion of the Stars, their velocity, distance, terms, and
In short, to celestial navigation.
The Pass Word is
SIRIUS or DOG STAR, answered by SOTHIS, another name for Sirius, as
discussed before. The Tarot Card “The Star,” sometimes called “The
Dog Star,” and the seven smaller stars depicted are sometimes said
to refer to the seven traditional “planets” while the large central
Star ALWAYS refers to Sirius, “the center of felicity.”
The card is
occasionally referred to as “The Star of the Magi” and, since it
depicts nothing associated with the Nativity of Christ, one would
assume the reference is to the ancient Persian Order of the
Priesthood, the Magi, a prototype of the Masonic Fraternity and the
priests of the Oannes of Sirius.
The next Degree, the 36th, or “Sublime Negociant” reveals that the
34th, 35th and 36th are something of a “set”.
After having learned
the mythos of the teacher-visitor from Sirius, the 36th Degree
proceeds with a paradoxical “warning” against Star and ‘idol’
worship, with specific reference to the,
“Astronomical observations of
the Priests of Babylon, Chaldea and Sidon. It quotes a chapter in
the Islamic Holy Book, The Koran, being the protests against star
and idol worship. The labor is consecrated to Geometry, and
The Name of the Degree, “Sublime Negociant” has the same Cipher

The various words both link it to the Degrees preceding,
and, bizarrely enough, to the Inner Circle of Contactee Mark Probert.
The Probert sessions, in the 1940s and ‘50s, were, of course, influenced
by the late Meade Layne, an occult initiate, as we have elsewhere
documented, and a student of the work of Frater Achad, the “father
of the Ultraterrestrial ciphers” in a very real sense. The Degree
itself dates back to 1780.
The Pass Word, MEUNITH = 128 = AUTOPSIE,
a word of the 34th Degree (see above) and TWO FOLD NAME.
Password, TZDIKIM (a peculiar transliteration of the Hebrew Word for
“Holy Sages”) has a cipher value of 114, equivalent to THE NAME and,

Masters existing outside space and time as guardians of humanity
against alien invasion.
This, of itself, could be coincidental, but,
when we come to the ‘innocent’ passwords of the next section, we find
ABRAHAM = 60 =

by BRAHMA, which, aside from pointing to the relationship between
the legendary idol maker from Chaldea who became the founder of the
Hebrew people and the first person of the Hindu Trinity, BRAHMA = 59

of taking the dictation of The Book of the Law.
The Words of
Recognition, SARAH = 23 = YADA, the name of another Inner Circle
member, answered by WATI SARIS = 97 = OROMAZ & ZAO, used in the same
manner in the 34th Degree, confirms that these Degrees are a set.
Even the final Word of the Degree, JEHOVAH = 67 = NATALLI, the name
of yet another Inner Circle member.
At least three members of this
circle and a number of similar adepts are discernible in this brief
set of Masonic Words from a single Degree, the name of which has the
same value, 245, as THE SECRET CHIEFS.

14 - THE ULTRATERRESTRIAL TRAIL IN OTHER DEGREES
BOTH the names of Degrees, and their contents refer again and again
to the lore of the stars in general, the visits of the sky gods,
their founding role in Freemasonry, and their purposes among us.
“It has also reference,” the text tells us, “to the Avatars or
Savior Gods treated by the Mysteries… Our Order is the depository of
all that is valuable to man, as it has preserved, in its temples
that which the profane world has long lost…”
The seven stars on the
Jewel of the 41st Degree point to the fact that “Stellar or Star
worship was succeeded by the Sun and Moon.”
In the “Prince of Light”
or 42nd Degree the candidate is told that “our Order is a social
chain which dates from the foundation of the world.” The Sign of the
Degree is given as “With index finger of right hand trace the stars;
holding an instrument with left hand.”
The Word and Password are JAH
(or Pole Star in old Arabian lore) and ORION.
The 47th Degree is called “Knight of the Seven Stars”.
ancient of all Symbols, the 7 Stars of Ursa Major’s annual
revolution round the Mystery Sun, a talisman (swastika), the seven
sisters and their consorts in the Pleiades, one unfaithful.”
notes on the Degree inform us that,
“The Columns fall - scene changes
- flaming star shows the route the adept should take…new calculation
of numbers - use and virtue of the mapped signs of the Zodiac.”
the following degree a “new apparition of a Celestial Guide”
appears. In the elaborate 49th Degree,
“Sublime Sage of the
Pyramids”, the candidate is given “a globe round which is twined a
serpent, sustained by two open wings.”
A note, probably by John Yarker, tells us “The Ancient Arabs believed the Pyramids were

Flood described in many cultures.
In the 51st Degree an important symbol is given; we are told “the Cabiric Prometheus stole the fire of heaven to help mankind.” The
Symbol is a ladder of 7 steps and above it a star. This seems a
clear reference to the Oannes legend. It also hints, by the Word of
the Degree, at the Richard Shaver antediluvian world myth.
is SISIT, given as “the Chaldean Enoch”. Its value is the same as
the Shaverian ‘telepathic broadcasting device’ of the ancient Titans
(Prometheus was a Titan; the Degree is named “Sublime Titan of the
Caucasus”), or 80 = TELAUG.
The 53rd Degree is more explicit. A brazier of fire is surrounded by
a Phoenix and a Serpent. The phoenix, in legend is the bird which
burns itself to ashes and is reborn from the flames.
The Candidate is
“This Serpent, forming a circle, is an emblem of
eternity…The Phoenix is a still more natural exposition…it
symbolized the cycle of the Star Sirius or Sothis of 1461 years.”
The Sign is to imitate looking
through a telescope. The Token is to join left hands and point to
the Star Sirius with the right index finger. The Word is PHOENIX, a
symbol of Sothis or Sirius, as the notes inform us.
We have spoken elsewhere of the 63rd Degree, “Sublime Kawi” in the
Yarker version, but sometimes given as “Adept of Sirius”. SUBLIME
KAWI = 149, the same value as the following (64th) Degree, SAGE OF
MYTHRAS, already discussed, but a Degree of Great antiquity and
deserving of much attention.
It speaks of travel to the Stars by the Adepts.The candidate is called “child of Earth” implying the giver
of the Degree is something else. The new initiate is given a cipher
script, a secret code similar to the later “Royal Arch” cipher.
Stellar, that is Star symbolism, continues up through the Degrees.
The 95th, or “Grand Conservator” has as its jewel and symbol a
four-pointed star inside a double circle with a triangle in the
middle, holding a jewel.
The Misraim, Ancient & Primitive, York, and even Scottish Masonic
systems all contain similar stories and symbols.

15 - THE CENTRAL PASSWORD
- THE DREAM OF H1331
“A while back I had a weird dream where I saw Crowley exactly as he
looks in a picture that is often used in books and magazines. He was
sitting at a table with a blackboard. He gave me a quizzical look
and wrote “H1331” on the blackboard. He kept gesturing toward the
board and looking at me as if he were trying to tell me something.”
Ron Bonds, Publisher, Personal Letter, 8/1/94
“…the mystery of which is that SELF (God) is also SELFLESSNESS which
is LA (Not) and for Numeration 31 the Three is One which is None,
and the reverse of this Number is 13 which is Unity and Love.”
Frater Achad, Book 31
“ Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us…”
The Book of the Law, II:19
“ I wrenched DOG backwards to find GOD; now GOD barks.”
Aleister Crowley, The Book of Lies, Chapter 63
IN traditional (Hebrew) Qabala, AL or “God”
- spelled Aleph (1) Lamed
(30) has a value of 31, as does LA or “Not” spelled Lamed (30) Aleph
(1), but derived in opposite ways.
In Qabala, the world is reduced to nothing or, better NO-thing at
the highest level, that is, the apparent Opposites are resolved;
anything is true only insofar as the reverse is true also - false,
only insofar as the reverse also is equally false.
The Book of the Law, Liber AL vel Legis, is, in a certain Qabalistic
sense, then, the Book of ALLA or LAAL or God and Not God; the Book
of the Union of Opposites.
This provides a primary Key to understanding the content of the
Book, and the several curious uses of the word “Not” (and of the
word “God”) therein. If we take the “Dog” in Crowley’s comments to
refer to Sirius, the “dog star” of the constellation called Canus
Major, or the Great Dog, we see that the GOD/NOT reversal is reflected
in the English curiosity that “Dog” and God” are the same word
spelled in opposite directions.
The “Gods of the Dog Star” are
“gods” only relative to the
primitive men they appeared among. This speaks to the spiritual
implications of human-alien contact.
The reverse of 31 is, of course, 13, the Hebrew value of “Achad” (as
in Frater Achad, or the Number “One” in Hebrew), also, “Unity” and
“Love” - the interplay of 31 (GOD) and 31 (NOT) are united in LOVE
(13) and UNITY (13).
This is confirmed in another sense in that 31 =
GOD in Hebrew Qabala, while its reverse, 13 = EMPTINESS (Beth (2) +
Heh (5) + Vau (6) = 13).
In this sense, Publisher Ron Bonds’ dream
of Crowley pointing to “H1331” reveals the formula “Hebrew:
Emptiness is God,” which duplicates the meaning of Gotama Buddha’s
Word “Anata” or ‘No-Soul’ or “Emptiness is the Essence of all
things” which is the core Attainment of all schools of meditation.
Then, again, if we take the Zero to be Negation, AL (God), or Aleph
is 1.3 or 13, while LA (Not), Lamed (30) Aleph
is 3.1 or 31.
Keeping in mind that Hebrew is written from Right to
Left, this can be read as AL (God) is 31, while LA (Not) is, in this
sense, 13, considered using common numerals in an English Language
One other association, pertaining to New Aeon English Qabala Cipher
Six (NAEQ6): It was through the ALLA/LAAL 31/13 paradox that Frater
Achad was able to suggest the True Cipher Value of the first three
letters (A=1,L=2,W=3; ALW also being an anagram for LAW as in Book
of the Law or Word of the Law) of the Cipher.
The fourth letter, counting Eleven spaces again through the standard
English Alphabet, is H=4.
Thus, in Ron’s dream, Crowley seems to be
calling attention to the next letter value H, after Achad’s 1331
work. H1331, then, confirms this work. It is significant that Ron
Bonds, of IllumiNet Press, was hard at work on publishing Secret
Cipher of the UFOnauts which uses that very ‘code’ generated out of
the 1331 ‘password’ of the Great White Brotherhood, at the time of
Achad noted that,
“…when A.C. first got into touch with the Brothers
of the A. A. the Pass word was ‘There is No-God.’ This seems to confirm
this Word, as the central secret of A. A.”
Crowley described the
experience, which took place in the Algerian desert December 12,
1909 in this way:
“But the Angel that was with me lifted me, and I saw the edge of the
altar, as I must call it…One of them bends forward so that I may
whisper the pass-word. The Angel prompts me to whisper: ‘There is no
God.’ So they let me pass, and though there was indeed nothing
visible therein, yet there was a very strange atmosphere, which I
could not understand.
“Suspended in the air there is a silver star, and on the forehead of
each of the guardians there is a silver star…”
“…I think the
difference in the way the English and Hebrew Alphabets
are written, “ Achad noted, “is a good symbol of this, the direction
is different, so that the same two letters might stand for either LA
or AL according to the manner in which we look upon them. The great
value of this Word lies in the fact that the self-same symbol
contains the ideas of Nothing and Something, without any change in
itself, and this seems to be the one Symbol that gets over the difficult
transition from NOT to ONE.”
It is also true that if 13 be taken for LA, and 31 for AL, and H for
itself, it forms an anagram for ALLAH, the Islamic name of deity
and, from a magical perspective, the Word of the Magus Mohammed.

16 - IN SUMMARY: A RADICAL REVISION OF THE HISTORY OF PLANET EARTH
IN ancient times there appear to have been complex and sophisticated
maps of the entire surface of the Earth.
While most of these source
maps disappeared with the burnings of the Library at Alexandria,
which survived until the 7th Century, that of Carthage which the
Romans destroyed, and other repositories of traditional wisdom,
enough fragmentary source maps remained in Constantinople and
elsewhere for medieval cartographers to formulate imperfect copies
of world maps and area maps of great antiquity and accuracy, though
their own inferior knowledge allowed many errors, including those of
projection, to distort some features.
The medieval portolano charts,
the famous world map of
Piri Muhyi ‘l-Din Reis of 1513, the
Finaeus world map of 1534 and others all suggest a very ancient
knowledge of latitude and longitude, all the continents including
Antarctica, the use of complex trigonometry, etc. in the source map
or maps. In some of these maps Antarctica appears with ice free
coasts and running rivers, and glaciers are shown in various areas,
also indicating an incredibly primeval genesis.
While some effort has
been made to link this knowledge to prehistoric civilizations, no
such civilizations are known to have existed. An aerial survey,
perhaps shared with early human civilizations is suggested.
From very early times the oldest civilizations show a great
reverence for certain stars, particularly Sirius, the brightest Star
in the heavens, in the constellation Canus Major, the “Great Dog”.
Interest in the Sun and Moon had obvious agricultural meaning, but
the attempt to link the extremely early Egyptian fascination with
the double star Sirius as being related to the beginning of the
Flooding of the Nile is brought into question by the world wide
attention to that brightest of the fixed stars. The Sumerians and
later Babylonians often depicted Sirius as a sort of wheel in their
great works of art, and the Anasazi peoples of the Southwestern
North American Continent built special Temples to catch the rising
and setting light of Sirius on significant days, as had the early
The Anasazi, whose origins and even real name are
unknown, appeared out of nowhere and disappeared in pre-Columbian
times. The Sumerians were of similar unknown origin; they just
The two thousand year old Moose Mountain medicine wheel in
Canada is also oriented to catch Sirius in its rising at Midsummer
dawn, as are more recent Amerindian medicine wheels. The similarity
between the medicine wheels in North America, and the depiction of
Sirius in Babylonian plaques (as in the Lamashtu Plaque) is
Within the structure of Freemasonry is a continuation of the
reverence for Sirius, and of an ancient legend of a humanoid but fish-like
being, called the Oannes, who brought to ancient Mesopotamia the
working tools of civilization, law, writing, architecture and
culture. The Oannes established an initiatory priesthood to carry
forward this knowledge, and this forms the core of Freemasonry.
Oannes is often depicted as a fish man with Sirius over his head, or
that of his (later) priests. He is said to have spent the days among
men, and the nights in the depth of the Persian Gulf. The Byzantine
Eastern Orthodox Patriarch Photius (820-893) informs us the beings
arrived from the sky in luminous eggs, which put down in the Gulf.
The fish god symbolism shows up in the stories of the Mesopotamian
god Odocon, or Dagon, later taken up by the Canaanites, the
Phoenicians and at last the Carthaginians, before their destruction
by the Romans. The story shows up in the form of the wonderworking
prophet Joshua, the son of Nun (Yeheshua, the fish’s son) later reflected
the story of Jesus (Yeheshua), whose sign was the fish (Vesica
Piscis, or Vessel of the Fish), whose chief disciple was a fisherman
called “The Big Fisherman”, who could walk on water and produce fishes
His card became “The Hanged Man” formerly “The Drowned
The Freemasons revere yet another guise of the same story, John the
Baptist, whose feast day, June 24th, coincides with the Summer
Solstice and the ancient feast day of The Oannes, “Oannes” meaning
“John”. The Grand Lodge of Speculative Freemasonry was founded on
June 24, 1717, in honor of that Saint. It was on June 24th of 1947
that the traditional ‘first’ flying saucer sighting took place in the
The Oannes myth has been linked to the Celtic Guoydion legends, and
the Jonah or Ionas of Babylonia, Hebrew and Chaldean myth. The
Biblical Jonah is swallowed and disgorged by a great fish to teach in
the Babylonian City of Ninevah.
The symbolism continues to the present time. In the reign of Henry
VIII Cardinal John Fisher was martyred for his loyalty to Roman
Catholicism and opposition to the King’s divorce of Catherine of
Aragon. He was executed on June 22nd, 1535, the traditional day when
the Sun enters the Sign of Cancer, which is associated with Sirius
and the “Dog Days” of Summer because of Cancer’s former association
with the Summer Solstice.
John Fisher was made a Saint by the
Catholic Church in 1935, with June 22nd given as his feast day.
Consider the date, his first and last names.
Still more recently, Philip K. Dick, the visionary author of
V.A.L.I.S. (“Vast Active Living Intelligence System”) and other
modern Gnostic works, who associates VALIS with the Vesica Piscis,
experienced a profound mystical transformation in 1974. Shortly
before his death he told Greg Rickman that, being in tremendous pain
from a tooth extraction:
I came home and I was in great pain. He hadn’t given me any pain
medication and my wife called the pharmacy. I was in such pain that
I went out to meet the girl when she came. She was wearing a golden

became a follower of UFO contactee

published in his lifetime was The Divine Invasion, just before his
untimely death ten years ago.

17 - THE
ROCKET SCIENTIST & THE GURU - STARGATE 1946
“At about the same time that Parsons was trying to incarnate an
extraterrestrial entity, he also claimed that he had met a Venusian
in the desert of New Mexico - an odd foreshadowing of the claims of
later ‘contactees’ such as George Adamski in the early 1950s.”
Jay Katz, Saucers of the Illuminati
THE so-called “Babalon Working”
John Whiteside Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard between
January 4 and March 4, 1946, has been the object of much
speculation, mythologizing and wonder.
This speculation is due in part to the involvement of two
charismatic and brilliant Bohemians of that period. Parsons
(1914-1952) was a major force in the early development of solid fuel
booster rockets, for which work the International Astronomical Union
eventually named a Lunar Crater in his memory. He was an O.T.O.
member from 1941, and served for a short period as Master of Agape
Lodge O.T.O. in the 1940s. He died under mysterious circumstances in
an explosion in 1952.
The other participant, pulp fiction author La Fayette Ron Hubbard
(1911-1986), eventually founded the Church of Scientology and has
been the center of stormy controversy in the decades since.
Both men were students of magick, especially the sexual magick of
According to Bent Corydon, Hubbard once confided in
his son, Ron Jr.,
“Secrets, techniques and powers I alone have refined,
improved on, applied my engineering principles to. Science and
logic. THE keys! My keys to the doorway of the Magick; my magick!
THE power! NOT Scientology power! MY power! The real powers of
Hubbard Sr. made clear he was talking about the sex magick
central to the OTO system, but with a unique twist:
“Sex by will,
Love by will - no caring and no sharing - no feelings… Sex is the
route to power. Scarlet women! They are the secret to the doorway.
Use and consume. Feast. Drink the power through them. Waste and
discard them.” 2
The idealist Jack Parsons could hardly have understood what sort of
man he was dealing with here; he wrote Crowley in February, 1946:
“About three months ago I met Ron… He is a gentleman… He moved in with
me about two months ago, and although Maggy and I are still
friendly, she has transferred her sexual affections to Ron.” 3
1 In point of fact, Adamski had been trying to sell his Venusian
story as science fiction several years earlier - that is, at about the same time as Parsons alleged experience in
2 Quoted from L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman? by Bent
Corydon and L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. (Lyle Stuart, 1987) p. 307.
pp. 255-56 .
While Parsons was convinced that Hubbard, as he wrote Crowley, “…is
in complete accord with our own principles” 4 and proceeded to enter
into a joint financial venture with the future Father of Scientology,
Crowley was writing his eventual successor as O.T.O. Grand Master,
“From our brother’s account he has given away both his
girl and his money - apparently it’s the ordinary confidence trick.”
Parson’s friend Alva Rogers, who witnessed these events as they
unfolded, described Hubbard’s role in this way:
“Ron was a persuasive and unscrupulous charmer, not only in social
groups, but with the ladies. He was so persuasive and charmingly
unscrupulous that within a matter of a few weeks he brought the
entire house of Parsons down around poor Jack’s ears. He did this by
the simple expedient of taking over Jack’s girl for extended periods
of time.” 6
It was against this background that Parsons and Hubbard embarked
upon “The Babalon Working” - an elaborate sexual magick experiment
designed to bring Babalon into physical manifestation.
The whole concept of the “Magical Child” has several distinct
In the more orthodox and traditional view, sex magick is employed to Manifest, by an act of Pure Will, a magical
being the material basis of which are the sexual fluids themselves. A
more literal interpretation holds that magical ritual such as “The
Star Sapphire” will produce a “Moon Child” - that is, a living child
who serves as host to a super-being, that is, the child is an
“avatar” in Eastern terms, or an Incarnation of the Divine in
Yet a third interpretation is that sex magick is,
simply, the “Yoga of Sex” and the “Magical Child” is the Transformed
Sex Magician Himself!
Hubbard and Parsons were ostensibly aiming at the second, literal
interpretation; to manifest a Scarlet Woman willing to conceive a
child who would embody the transformative goddess-being Babalon.
Crowley wrote Germer:
“Apparently Parsons or Hubbard or somebody is
producing a moonchild. I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the
idiocy of these louts.” 7
The reaction was certainly excessive.
Crowley’s successor as Grand
Master of the O.T.O. in the 1980s, Hymenaeus Beta, noted that an adequate
chronicle of Parsons’,
“now - famous ‘Babalon Working’ of 1946 EV has
yet to be published… Most published accounts focus on his friendship
and falling-out with Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard
without appraising the larger issues of what was actually being
attempted, and why.” 8

(Falcon Press/O.T.O. 1989) introduction by Hymenaeus Beta, p. 7
Certainly, Parsons’ own description of the
Working is based in the fundamentals of Ceremonial and Sexual Magick.
In “The Book of Babalon - January 4 - March 4, 1946 EV” Parsons
outlines the entire experiment, including the reasons for it:
“The present age is under the influence of the force called, in
magical terminology, Horus. This force relates to fire, Mars, and the
Sun, that is, to power, violence and energy…
“This force is completely blind, depending upon the men and women in
whom it manifests and who guide it…
“The catastrophic trend
is due to our lack of understanding of our own natures. The
hidden lusts, fears, and hatreds resulting from the warping of the love urge, which underlie the natures of all Western
peoples, have taken a homicidal and suicidal direction.
“This impasse is broken by the incarnation of another sort of force,
called BABALON. The nature of this force relates to love,
understanding, and dionysian freedom, and is the necessary
counterbalance or correspondence to the manifestation of Horus.”
Thus far, Parsons is reasoning in a sound manner.
Keep in mind,
however, that he is working with his ‘friend’ Hubbard, then in the
very process of making off with Parsons’ money and lover; a man who
was to tell his son, Ron Jr., a few years later, to use and discard
Scarlet Women. In what sense “scarlet?” the younger Hubbard asked.
“Scarlet,” the Scientology ‘Source’ replied, “the blood of their
bodies; the blood of their souls… bend their bodies; bend their
minds; bend their wills; beat back the past.” 9
This is the grossest perversion of Crowley’s teaching.
merely observed in the same context,
“We do opine that it is better
and easier that the other party should be in ignorance of the sacred
character of the Office. It is enough if that assistant be formed by
Nature signally for the physical task, robust, vigorous, eager,
sensible, hot and healthy; flesh, nerve and blood being tense, quick,
and lively, easily enflamed, and nigh inextinguishable.” 10
Crowley is telling us that a partner in sexual magick should,
ideally, in his opinion, be involved for the sake of sensual
pleasure, pure and simple.
Hubbard is telling his own son how to
enslave minds, bodies and souls. Parsons, who wrote extensively on
the subject of freedom, could have had no idea of what type of
person he was engaged in High Magick with.
In any case, Parsons goes on to narrate that,
“In January 1946 I had
been engaged in the study and practice of Magick for seven years,
and in the supervision and operation of an occult lodge for four
years 11, having been initiated into the Sanctuary of the Gnosis by
the Beast 666, Fra. 132, and Fra. Saturnus 12.
At this time I decided
upon a Magical operation designed to obtain the assistance of an
elemental mate.” 13

12 This is a significant “crew” of initiators, indeed.
The Sanctuary of the Gnosis refers to the Ninth Degree of the O.T.O.
System, the most exalted of the regular initiatory degrees. The
Initiators here mentioned are Aleister Crowley, the then Grand
Master of the Order,
W.T. Smith, the U.S. National Grand Master, and Karl Germer, who
served after Crowley’s death as Grand Master until the early 1960s.

of Babalon, introduction, “Conception”
In a sense, deprived of his former lover, Parsons
was ‘going for broke’ in looking for a partner to create a magical
“All or nothing - I have no other terms,” as he put it
Beginning on January 4, 1946 at 9:00 PM, Parsons and Hubbard
employed the powerful Enochian Air Tablet, using an Air Dagger,
parchment talisman, invocations, conjurations, Enochian Calls and
invocations, and appropriate banishings 15.
According to Parsons, at
various times over subsequent days, wind storms were raised,
electrical power was disrupted (January 14), during which Hubbard
allegedly had a candle knocked from his hand by Something; several
witnesses saw a “brownish yellow light about seven feet high” 16
which Parsons banished.17
On January 18 Parsons and Hubbard were out in the Mojave Desert when
Parsons suddenly had an epiphany, and realized the experiment was
“I returned home,” he tells us, “and found a young
woman answering the requirements 19 waiting for me.”
For the next
month he invoked BABALON with her as his partner, “as was proper to
one of my grade” 20 - in other words, by the sexual Eucharist of the
Mass of the Holy Ghost.
While his magical partner visited in New York, on February 28,
Parsons returned to the Mojave, and received a “communication” he
referred to as
Liber 49, The Book of Babalon, which identifies its
source as Babalon Herself. It should be noted that Hubbard was also
Liber 49 asserts, among other things,
“The working is of
nine moons… And she shall wander in the witch-wood under the Night of
Pan, and know the mysteries of the Goat and the Serpent, and of the
children that are hidden away… I will provide the place and the
material basis, thou the tears and blood… Thy tears, thy sweat, thy
blood, thy semen, thy love, thy faith shall provide. Ah, I shall
drain thee like the cup that is of me, Babalon 21
…Let me behold thee
naked and lusting after me, calling upon my name… Let me receive all
thy manhood within my Cup, climax upon climax, joy upon joy… Gather
together in the covens as of old… Gather together in secret, be naked
and shameless and rejoice in my name.” 22

It is interesting that much of this anticipates the emergence of
Wicca, at a time when Gerald Gardner in England was only beginning
to formulate his ideas. Parsons
spent much of the remainder of his short magical career writing on
the subject of ‘witchcraft’ .
In any event, when Parsons
communicated the Good News to Crowley, the old Magus was perplexed,
or amused, or, conceivably both.
He wrote Parsons,
“You have me
completely puzzled by your remarks. I thought I had a morbid
imagination, as good as any man’s, but it seems I have not. I cannot
form the slightest idea what you can possibly mean.”
Apparently undaunted, upon Hubbard’s return Parsons prepared to
impregnate his magical partner, impressed by a vision Hubbard had
“of a savage and beautiful woman riding naked on a great cat-like
According to Francis King’s account,
“Parsons was High Priest and
had sexual intercourse with the girl, while Hubbard who was present
acted as scryer, seer, or clairvoyant”.
This occurred on the first
three days of March, 1946.
The aftermath is the subject of much rumor, and points out the high
significance of sexual magick.
“This secret is the true Key to Magick,”
said Crowley, “that is, by the right use of this secret man may
impose his Will on Nature herself…”
Hubbard took off with Parsons’
former partner and the funds of their joint enterprise. Parsons
caught up with Hubbard in July of 1946 in Miami, having to evoke
Bartzabel 23 to raise a storm at sea, forcing Hubbard back to shore.
Ron Hubbard nevertheless married Parsons’ former lover the following
month, and went on to write
Dianetics - The Science of Mental Health
and, eventually, to organize the Church of Scientology, built on a
hidden mythos of a 75 million year old disaster in which the
inhabitants of a 76 planet galactic federation were blown up by a
dictator named Xenu.
This science fiction ‘space opera’ from
Hubbard’s pulp fiction days forms a bizarre underpinning to an
already bizarre story.24

arrival of the Post War Baby Boom is simultaneous in an eerie sort
of way. UFO buffs have of late been touting a theory that Hubbard

He wished to bring this other world into Manifestation, but lacked
the technical knowledge to do so. So, he came to the innocent sex

to do with the hideous Old Ones of the H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu

EPILOGUE - THE CIPHER TRAIL IN THE BOOK OF BABALON
THE New Aeon Qabala (NAEQ6), also known as the "Secret
Cipher of The UFOnauts” reveals a great deal about Parsons, Hubbard, and
of Babalon itself.
Hubbard almost certainly used his considerable charismatic and
hypnotic ability to implant Parsons with a bogus “4th Chapter of The
Book of the Law” - but he could not resist leaving his signature all
over it, in terms of his name, ideas and motives, encrypted in the UFOnaut Cipher. He probably learned the cipher from his pulp
magazine occultist connections.
Elsewhere, I have demonstrated that
Ray Palmer and Richard Shaver were using the cipher, or something
much like it, throughout the 1940s, in the pages of Amazing Stories
La Fayette Ron Hubbard came out of this same circle. In “Cipher 6”
as it is called, LA FAYETTE RON HUBBARD has a value of 248,
identical to the value of the name, number and first several words of

encrypted his intent in the same value in the text. 248 = BABALON

Bent Corydon, spoke to his son Ron, Jr. about the blood of the

of their bodies, the blood of their souls,” as he put it. It should
therefore come as no surprise that L. RON HUBBARD = 115 = BLOOD TO
BLOOD in The Book of Babalon.
The Book of Babalon also refers to
future witch covens as of eleven, strange wording (as covens are
traditionally 13), until one applies NAEQ6: COVENS = 74, or 7+4= 11!
The third party to the Babalon Working, the late Margerie Cameron
Parsons always referred to herself simply as “Cameron”, having the
value of 93, the traditional number of both “love” and “will” the

phrases exist in this Book, suggesting that Parsons, in writing it,

POSTSCRIPT - THE STUFF OF DREAMS
“When a thing is hidden away with so much pains, merely to reveal it
is to destroy it.”
IN 1980 I ran into the dead end wall that many UFOlogists have
encountered in their research.
The evidence I had accumulated
suggested to me that the UFO mystery was something closely akin to
an infinite series of nested boxes, and that illusion after illusion
after illusion produced much speculation but little useful
information. My old friend Gene Duplantier had once described
UFOlogy as “like a long walk down an endless tube,” and many of the
best , most thoughtful students of the subject, on realizing this,
simply gave up.
Ten years were to pass before another break came my way in the form
of the Ultra-terrestrial Cipher that provided the breakthrough that
explains, for me, not only the UFOs, but many Masonic pass words,
ancient legends and occult secrets.
I stumbled upon the cipher; I did not invent it, owe no allegiance
to it, make no claims for it other than that it “fits” easily the
subject matter I have applied it to in this and my previous work,
Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts. I regard it as experimental, but
consider it a working solution to some of the most profound enigmas
thoughtful people have dwelt upon over the last several centuries.
Two things to take note of: First, in discussing various Masonic
degrees, words and “secrets” I have been at some pain to avoid
violation of the ritual privacy of these societies. The Degrees I
have discussed are, essentially, archaic (that is, no longer
working) Degrees from the York and Memphis systems. The York
materials are available at virtually every book store in Duncan’s
Ritual of Freemasonry.
The Memphis materials exist in manuscript
form, but are not held under copyright and have recently been
published in modern editions based in John Yarker’s work. I have
avoided quoting or referring to any ritual not routinely in current
public distribution or available at book stores. In passing I will
say that to read about a ritual is not to perform it. Such rituals
are “Mystery Plays” and are fully understandable only in the doing,
not merely in the telling.
Second, there is a sense in which the Oannes Mythos, the Mystery
Plays and Rituals presented here, the very Ultraterrestrial Visitors
themselves inherently overlap with the stuff of dreams.
represent a Reality more profound than our own, and as such cannot
be taken verbatim or too literally. In this volume I have pulled out
the stops and taken a plunge beyond the Reality Barrier. What I have
found is the core of the Ultraterrestrial Secret, too numinous to be
other than ineffable.
When there are no words to literally describe
what one knows, one speaks in the language of mythos.
So have I
“To puzzle out an imaginary meaning for this ‘nonsense’ sets one
thinking of the Mysteries; one enters into deep contemplation of
holy things and God Himself leads the soul to real illumination.”

APPENDIX ONE - TERRY R. WRISTE ON THE ULTRATERRESTRIALS
[Terry R. Wriste recently observed the rising of Sirius at the
Summer Solstice on a two thousand year old medicine wheel in Canada.
I invited him to view the first draft of this book. I interviewed him
in September of 1994 for this volume.]
Allen H. Greenfield: So, Terry, I understand you performed my
proposed “ultraterrestrial technology” version of the Bornless One
ritual at an old medicine wheel on the Summer Solstice. What
Terry R. Wriste: I should tell you, o guru wannabe, I was
very skeptical about your ritual. Not the experimentation as such,
you know, because we agree that this is all open season stufi, but
this particular deal....anyhow, the moment of the rising of Sirius
before the Sun breaks is an eerie blue magick all its own. I didn’t
meet the Oannes or whatever, but I got the oddest auditory sensation
of my life, like I was under water. I asked the girl I was with,
Katy, and she was in a sort of trance by the time the sun broke the
horizon. She said, “I felt like a dolphin” and that was that.
AHG: For a first try and outdoors at that, I guess. Terry,
you have reviewed the draft manuscript for Secret Rituals of the Men
in Black . To put it bluntly, what, in your opinion, have I missed
or neglected to say?
TRW: Well, for starters you might have given
more attention to two facts about the Star Sirius. One, in favor of
any kind of ‘visitation’ hypothesis, is the fact that Sirius is less
than nine light years from Earth. This means that, assuming an
advanced civilization in that area, a visit every now and then, even
using technology not far beyond our own present capacities is
feasible. On the down side, though, Sirius is a rather young star,
and there would be considerable question in conventional terms as to
whether, supposing there are planets there, life, let alone advanced
intelligent life, amphibious or not, has had time to evolve .
AHG: This is assuming, of course, that Sirius is the home star of the
Oannes, rather than some sort of base, or portal.
TRW: Exactly. And
I know, of course, that you make no such assumption. Neither you nor
I have ever assumed that Ultraterrestrials are either benevolent or
truthful. But the issue could be clarified for the reader. The
constellation Canus Major, the Great Dog, is configured as if to
sweep ahead of Orion the Hunter, the “dog’s” mythical master.
Alpha Canus Major, or Sirius, called “the dog star” is not only the
brightest Star in the constellation, but the brightest in the sky.
With an apparent magnitude of -1.4, Sirius is actually a dual star
system only 8.7 light years from Earth. Sirius A is a hot type-A
white star, it is orbited once every 50 years by Sirius B, known as
pup,” a white dwarf. The mass of Sirius A is about twice that of our
sun, while Sirius B is incredibly dense.
Though supposedly the dual
nature of the system has been known for only about a century, a
number of traditional African tribal peoples have retained a
detailed knowledge in their initiatory rituals of Sirius B. Most
well known are
the Dogon, but other related peoples also are aware
The Egyptians oriented a number of their Temples on the
rising and setting of Sirius, with the light of the Star being
caught on the temple’s inner altar. Other ancient structures,
including the Bighorn Medicine Wheel in Wyoming, but conspicuously
not including Stonehenge in Britain, are oriented on Sirius.
Canus Major is, as mentioned, associated in myth with Orion, its
apparent neighbor. It is closely associated with Taurus, containing
the fabled “Seven Sisters” or The Pleiades. The associated
constellation Canus Minor, “the small dog” contains the Star Procyon. This is Orion’s other mythic hunting dog.
Sirius is also associated
with the constellation Cancer the Crab which, in ancient times, was
associated with the Summer Solstice and the “Dog Days of Summer”
associated with Sirius, aligned with the Greek word “seirios”
meaning scorching. Sirius in Canus Major, Procyon in Canus Minor and
Betelgeuse in Orion form an apparent equilateral triangle in the
heavens as viewed from Earth.
It is of more than passing interest that
Sirius, Procyon, The
Pleiades and Orion are names which show up quite often in the lore
of UFOlogy and contacteeism. The contact-source identified as
“Semjase” from the Pleiades in the cases of Fred Bell and
Meier is an example.
In occult lore, “Semjaza” (or Semyaza, Semiaza,
Shemhazai, etc.) is the fallen angel Azza, or Uzza, a seraph who was
tempted by Ishtar to reveal the Secret Explicit Name.
to the Masonic Third Degree, in which the Grand Master is slain for
failure to reveal the “Master’s Word” to ruffians. Semjaza is said to
hover between heaven and Earth with lowered head, in the
constellation Orion. According to The Book of Jubilees, Semjaza is
the Watchers sent from Heaven to instruct humanity.

AHG: Consider it clarified. What else?
about the Bambara, the Dogon and other African peoples’ knowledge of
AHG: I had sort of thought Robert Temple had covered
that so well in
The Sirius Mystery
that I hesitated to repeat his
data. I wanted to concentrate on the survival of the Oannes legend
in Freemasonry, through applying the Ultraterrestrial Cipher
contained in The Book of the Law.
TRW: Sure, but time slips by. Keep
in mind Temple’s book came out twenty years ago, and there is now a
whole generation that may not know what he had to say.
the Dogon and other tribal peoples which had contact, through trade
routes and the migration of peoples in ancient times, with the
Berber-Carthegenian-GrecoRoman world, have accurate information on
the fifty year rotation of Sirius B, its incredible mass, knowledge
of the stars and planets, the human circulatory system and other
matters as astoundingly out of historical sequence as the old maps
of a preglacial Antarctica which, they say, was brought to them by
‘fish men’ from Sirius called Nommo, paralleling exactly the
Babylonian Oannes, the Phonecian Dagon, and so forth.
The name of
the Dogon people is derived, almost certainly, from that of the fish-god
Dagon. It also reminds me a bit of “NEMO” as Crowley described his
encounter in the Enochian Aethyrs. Crowley scryed the 13th Aethyr,
called ”ZIM” on December 4th, 1909 in a river bed near Bou-Saada in
North Africa. He meets a being called “Nemo”.
The whole vision is
much like the North African version of the Oannes legend. Crowley’s
“Nemo” and the Dogon “Nommo” seem cut from the same fish.
are we to make of the “John” legend itself?
TRW: In following the
“John” legend through history, I think it is important to note that
the recurrent John/Fish/Sirius motif doesn’t necessarily mean that,
say, Jesus or John the Baptist were mere mythical stand-ins for the
earlier Oannes. You mention, for example, Saint John Fisher in the
time of Henry the VIII, who was certainly historical, as,
unquestionably, was your literary hero Phil Dick.
AHG: True enough.
I can think of two alternatives to various “Johns” being mythical in
the popular sense; one is that real historical personages become
closely associated with the Oannes legend in and out of Freemasonry
because they share common archetypal roots. Summer Solstice,
miraculous knowledge or salvation from the skies, association with fish
or with water or both strikes an archetypal chord, so that the same
names and themes recur over and over in very real people.
don’t you think that theme gets worked to death? I think of the
brilliant Alvin Kuhn, and before him Gerald Massey, seeking out the
archetypal connections so carefully that any physical person or
event gets lost in the forest of words. Take Kuhn’s analysis of the
“Ark” as in Noah and the many other less familiar stories of the
Absolutely everything gets discussed as a possibility,
except the prospect that the Ark may have been a Vessel in very
Truth, but not of the oceans of the earth, but of the depths of
space. Not a Chalice, or the Womb or a Ritual Tomb, but a Celestial
AHG: True, though some of this work certainly hits on our
basic theme. You mention Alvin Kuhn’s work. Let me quote something
for you from The Lost Light published over half a century ago.
“…Jesus, Horus, Ioannes and others came as
‘fish’ in Greek. And we have the fish-avatar of Vishnu. The door of
life is figured in the shape of a fish-mouth at the western or
feminine end of a church. The Pope’s miter is the mouth of a fish.
The soul of life comes by way of the water.”
Now, it seems to me
that all this carries forward and sings to us because it does strike
an archetypal chord, as Jung and Campbell and others have shown.
they seem to trace to an historical event or events that, in a sense
“play out” the archetypal myth. I doubt that Jonah was swallowed by
a fish. But a “fish vessel” or a vessel for
the fish-being is not nearly as unbelievable. Which brings me to the
second point. In modern initiatory societies such as the Golden
Dawn, it is common custom to adopt a spiritual motto, and to change
that motto in keeping with stages of development spiritually.
suspect strongly that this is an ages-old practice, and initiates of
the Oannes Mysteries may have adopted the name “John” or a
variation, as well as the fish symbols and star symbols we have
discussed. Thus we can as easily see Jesus as a spiritual motto
adopted upon initiation by a veritable adept. Not long after Jesus
another Messiah-figure arose among the Jews and raised an army of a
million against Rome. He was called, “Simon, Son of a Star”.
bet that that was an initiatory
Sirius in Canis Major, or “The Great Dog.”
TRW: So the Egyptians keeping time by the Dog Star doesn’t
trivialize the Visitation premise. Gerald Massey informs us that,
“the first time observed and registered was Sut-Typhonian; its types
were the Great Bear and the Dog-star. In this time the year began
with the rising of Sothis…“
...that’s “Sirius” - and the Egyptians were
certainly concerned with the flooding of the Nile, but I doubt that
this much concerned the Anasazi in Arizona nor for that matter the
Babylonians, who were just as fixated on Sirius.
One truth melds with
the other. The motif of the “teacher from the stars” has many faces,
but the very fact of its recurrence is of great importance. The Yada
AHG: We should recall that the Yada Di Shi’ite was the
Chief of the Inner Circle group of Ascended Masters channeled by
Mark Probert from at least the mid 1940s, and heavily promoted by
Meade Layne. The Yada, or High Priest, lived in a Himalayan
civilization called “Yuga” half a million years ago, according to
TRW: Yes, exactly. In any event, speaking through Probert to Bryant and Helen Reeves, I would guess in San Diego in
late April of 1955, he said [quoting],
“In the early period of the
earth’s affairs when man was beginning to show signs of thinking,
space beings came to earth and instructed man on various secret
things, not only regarding the planetary system but regarding their
own inner living as well. Some of the greatest teachings man has
received came to him by these space beings in order that various
civilizations could advance more rapidly.”
This brings to mind
everything from the story of the God Thoth in Egypt, or Oannes in
Sumer, to Semjase in California in modern times.
AHG: That brings us
to the Central Question. We see the Knights of Malta busily
suppressing the entire mythos, but Kenneth Grant routinely trots out
his rather unusual version of the same in book after book. We see
the mythos of the Oannes repeated again and again in cipher form in
Masonic Ritual, and we see the same cipher showing up in ceremonial
magick, UFOlogy and elsewhere.
Clearly George Hunt Williamson would
have a very different reason for introducing these ideas into “New
Age” thought than, say, Meade Layne. Yet we see evidence that both
have done so in the contactee lore. Are we talking about the
unadulterated reality here, or yet another “mask of the unknown”?
TRW: Both. You’ve established the existence of the cipher pretty
well in the previous volume, and I think here you’ve established how
it is used in Masonic Ritual to pass a mythos down through the ages.
You might want to make this a trilogy one day, and devote a volume
to what is mythic in this mythos, and what is literally real. I have
seen a lot of strange stuff in both occultism and UFOlogy, and you
are right on the ‘answer’ for anyone with eyes to see.
AHG: As the
case may be, we’ll see what people do with this stuff. What is the
strangest thing you have seen in your decades chasing UFOs.
strangest thing is in figuring out why the UFOnauts abduct people,
and what stops them from doing so. Since magical ritual contacts
them and banishes them, we know either that they are magical beings,
or magick is a technology, or both. But when I started working with
Reichian technologies the Knights of Malta would give their fortunes
to have, I noticed something most strange. UFOs can be disintegrated
by Reichian energies.
AHG: Well, that’s strange, but hardly new;
Reich himself said he did that in the ‘50s.
TRW: Right. But consider
what Reich worked with. He called it “Orgone Energy” which was a
direct outgrowth of his work with Freudian Psychotherapy. Up through
a certain point, he was an orthodox Freudian, until he discovered
that the very energies that Freud addressed in psychological terms
were explainable as a Universal Energy or Current, a kind of
‘orgasmic flux’ inherent in the universe, which could be channeled,
quantified and, apparently, used to shoot down flying saucers.
Energy, it seems to me, is identical to the Love/Will current of
Book of The Law.
AHG: Wait a minute. Are you
telling me that the energy behind human libido destroys
TRW: “They drink our fear, like hungry
ghosts. To drink instead our love is death unto them and their kin.”
AHG: Who are you quoting?
TRW: That would be telling.

generally prefer my old friend John Keel’s term “Ultraterrestrials”.
For various reasons that I will go into presently, these alien
intelligences have many so-called “deep agents” who live among us,
sometimes for centuries. They have been communicated with since time
immemorial through deceptively simple codes and ciphers, which are
Occultists have used such codes for centuries.
The “rules” by which
such ciphers are decoded have, in fact, not changed for at least a
thousand years, possibly much longer. The rules are contained in a
venerable body of knowledge loosely defined as “Qabalism” from the
Hebrew word “Qabala” which means “hidden” or “secret”. A whole new,
English-language based cipher was dictated by an Ultraterrestrial
source to Queen Elizabeth the First’s Astrologer Royal, Dr.
through the trance channeling of Sir Edward Kelly several hundred
It was called “the language of the Angels” written in a
script directly translatable into English. Now, Dee and Kelly were
human beings and in fact served their government as espionage
agents. They may well have used this Ultraterrestrial Cipher, termed
“Enochian” - for espionage purposes, but, primarily, it was utilized
by them to receive and use an Alien technology, so advanced as to be
indistinguishable from magick, to learn such techniques as
teleportation between planets and remote communication.
cipher led directly to a simpler successor cipher communicated to
York Rite Royal Arch of Enoch Masons as a series of glyphs
corresponding to the 26 letters of the standard English Alphabet,
and in use until laid open. Around the middle of the 19th Century
the Royal Arch of Enoch cipher having been exposed to public view by
a writer named Malcolm Duncan, the aliens began the slow process of
communicating the new cipher to various deep agents and human
Madame Blavatsky of the Theosophical Society and before that
the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light seems to have known the code,
taught her by her Masters, Paolos Metamon and
Max Theon, probably
themselves Ultraterrestrial Agents.
She used them to encode the
names of the human adepts and Ultraterrestrials she was in
About a hundred years ago mass distribution of the “new” cipher was
begun through the dictation of various alleged modernistic “Holy
Books” which contained the encrypted cipher. Oahspe was dictated by
an Ultraterrestrial in the 1890s. As late as the early 1900s it was
still being transmitted by Max Theon and his wife Alma from their
headquarters in Algeria under the name “Cosmic Philosophy” -
distributed in Georgia by the adept Peter Davidson.
But our key communication came to Edward Alexander Crowley and his
bride Rose Edith Kelly Crowley during their extended honeymoon in
Cairo in the Spring of 1904. For one hour each day, from noon to 1
PM, a mysterious being calling itself “Aiwass” dictated The Book of
the Law, a holy book for the new age then only beginning, which
included repeated references to a cipher based in the number eleven.
Crowley himself was unable to break the cipher, as the text itself
predicted, but his student Charles Robert John Stansfeld Jones
eventually cracked it. Crowley’s own efforts focused on a single page
of the original manuscript with a mysterious line and strange mark.
He overdrew a grid on this page, but never was able to find the
Aiwass cipher as such.
Following up on the work of Crowley and Jones, English occultists,
notably Jake Stratton-Kent, Carol Smith and especially
worked out the code completely in 1976. Following Crowley’s original
grid overlay on the key page, they started with the letter “A” and,
counting down eleven spaces, came to L, then W and so on until 26
numerical values for letters were obtained, in other words a
complete English language cipher.
I had long pondered the strange names for planets and beings in the
contactee lore, and was the first person to apply this cipher to UFO
Once this was done, the entire UFO mystery fell
readily into place; I had stumbled upon the cipher of the Ultraterrestrials for communication with their deep agents and human
allies, and, once found, was able to intercept enough myself to
predict UFO events, to explain the UFO mystery, to find the deep
agents, and to be able to prove each of these claims beyond the
shadow of a doubt. In short, I had solved the UFO mystery.
In my 35 years in UFOlogy, the most intriguing question I have thus
far run across anywhere is why the Earth has not been taken over by
the various powerful groups of aliens that seem hostile - in specific,
the Grays and Insectoid beings that have bases of operation all over
the world, and, in the case of the Grays, have even entered into covert agreements with various Earthly governments.
Some so-called experts will tell you that these forces have been
checked by more benevolent visitors to our world, but all known
groups of True Aliens are either fundamentally neutral, or
themselves “on the run” from Grays and the like, or, in truly
advanced races of beings, have a strict policy of nonintervention in
the affairs of other worlds.
Other “experts” will tell you we HAVE BEEN taken over. Charles Fort
pronounced the famous and frightening verdict in 1919; he said “I
THINK WE’RE PROPERTY” and a number of modern researchers who have
looked at the situation consider this to be so.
Neither answer is in accord with the facts. It is true that
benevolent ADVANCED visitors will not interfere; on their own worlds
they have had similar experiences to that of the tragic contact
between Europeans and Native Americans which destroyed the native
cultures of this hemisphere, and also of the Roman Republic’s
gradual conversion to a totalitarian Empire in the process of
“helping” other nations with their internal affairs.
It is also true that the
Grays and their more advanced allies across
galaxies and dimensions undreamed of have defeated and overcome many
enlightened civilizations; when contactee Woodrow Derenberger met
the alien calling himself “Indrid Cold” the latter told him that he
came from a country far weaker than ours; which is a kind of “coded
message” to indicate to those who know the UFO mystery as not true
mystery but rather history, that Cold and his cohorts from the
planet he called Lanulus were themselves a conquered race, hiding
The truth lies in another direction; one that few writers - even
writers of science fiction -have even guessed at, although the late
Frank Herbert came very close in his Dune novels; and the early UFOnaut trance channeler Mark Probert came even closer; we have not
been taken over, we are not property, not because aliens do not want
our planet, nor because others have protected us, but because the
dark forces from deep space are, quite simply, and for some
mysterious reason, afraid of us Earthlings.
They are, in fact,
frightened to death of us.
This shows up in some of the literature,
the jealousy of the gods of genesis that having gained wisdom from
the Tree of Knowledge, we might eat of the Tree of Life and thus
become gods ourselves
the story of the Titan Prometheus bringing
fire from heaven to humanity, for which the gods punished him in
the Norse and Teutonic myths of very mortal
“gods” preparing for cosmic combat against the Frost Giants and
...all these stories, in Ultraterrestrial terms, tell us of beings and
forces HUMAN OR CLOSE TO HUMAN that have defied the conquerors of a
thousand thousand worlds, and put them repeatedly to flight.
Mark Probert’s communications were not with “aliens” in the true sense,
but rather with an Assembly of Sixteen “Guardians” who have
protected the Earth from ill influences for thousands of years. All
of these “beings” - and please understand this
started out being as human as you or I.
They are the Ascended or
Hidden Masters of the Great Brotherhood of the Adepti; people who
have become “super beings” and have turned their attentions to the
guiding of our evolution to becoming what they themselves are. They
do not lead us, nor govern us, nor “own” us. In a very real sense,
THEY ARE US.
Some of these shining individuals walk amongst us
unseen, just as do agents of darker forces from far worlds.
are, I can tell you absolutely with unshakable certainty,
representatives of both this Great Brotherhood here in this great
hall tonight, and of their opposition. They took little interest in
my work as long as I was a common UFO field investigator collecting
samples of grass and interviewing
Charlie Hickson or John Reeves and other contactees and abductees.
But when I discovered that deeply placed aliens among us, and deep
agents of Ultraterrestrial forces were using a secret cipher to
communicate with their overlords
- a cipher previously known only to Initiates and a few occultists
as detailed in my book Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts, they have
taken notice, indeed.
Some of you here have an unasked question: How do I know all of
I am not, emphatically not, a “contactee” or “channeler” in
the usual sense of the term, and, under present circumstances, I
COULD NOT be an abductee, but, having cracked the communication
cipher in use by a host of alien groups and their human contacts
since the middle 1800s at least, I have been able to penetrate some
of their most cherished blinds and secrets, and show others with the
patience to grasp the cipher involved and the techniques for
applying it how to do the same - what the “messages” REALLY mean,
who fairly soon, but there is probably still time to get in on the
There is a reason for this.
The cipher employs no telepathy, no
“high tech devices” and relies on several subtle but essentially
primitive techniques, no more sophisticated than hand carried
There are good reasons for this. Some of you no doubt
recall the recent case of the U.S. pilot shot down over Bosnia. He
survived until rescued in part because he DID NOT use the radio he
had with him except under extreme circumstances. Radios have limited
life spans. They can also be intercepted. So, too, can telepathic Ultraterrestrial messages, and the kind of unimaginable technology
some aliens - and some humans - employ.
With earlier ciphers, this method of communication has been in use
on Earth for at least several thousand years. While I cannot decode
all earlier ciphers, at least some of them follow the same general
rules down through history.
My favorite example is the classic of classics, the communication
between the late contactee George Adamski and a being calling itself
“Orthon” - a so-called “Blond Alien” who has shown up in many cases
The entire case was superimposed on a science fiction story
written earlier by Adamski and modified to fulfill certain needs,
perhaps by the late occultist and UFOlogist
George Hunt Williamson.
The technique followed shows up in case after case after case. The
alien names are usually strange words that refer to a planet, or
being, or vehicle.
The case is well publicized, and anyone reading
the publicity and knowing the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts could
“decode” the strange names and story pattern, and find a secondary,
more important meaning. This particular case has alarm bells all
over it; the name Adamski means, roughly, “Son of Adam” or “Son of
The visitor has long blond hair, is male but androgynous,
comes from the sky preaching a message of peace and love. Someone
with the cipher would then key in on the name “ORTHON” and discover,
immediately, that this was an important event, because the cipher
value for ORTHON is the same as the cipher value for JESUS, and the
story itself is a weird parody of the New Testament account.
in later years was even reputed to have risen from the grave
renewed, and then to have risen with other celestials into the
heavens. But the key here, I think, was to call attention to the
location of the sighting on the California-Arizona border. Orthon
left behind mysterious footprints which contained a glyph of obvious
interest only to initiates.
One print clearly shows a fylfot cross
emerging from a vesica pisces; in plain English, a swastika emerging
from a time-space portal, indicating that this would continue to be
a landing sight for a long time, and, indeed, adepts including the
late Meade Layne would go to that area to meet landed aliens for
years to come.
That swastikas would show up in a case involving Adamski and
Williamson are no surprise. Although that symbol has a long history
before Nazi Germany, it was in the Nazi era that it developed its
unfavorable reputation, and it was apparently the former American
Nazi William Dudley Pelley who introduced the occultist Williamson
to the aspiring writer Adamski, shortly after Pelley was released
from prison after WWII.
Pelley and Williamson were both occultists,
but Adamski was not. It is doubtful if the well-meaning Adamski ever
had a clue as to who and what Orthon and for that matter Williamson
were, and what they were doing.
I have said that the Earth has never been taken over by Aliens, but
a substantial core of what became the Nazi Party in Germany, which
came closer to control of the world than many of us today realize,
had been members of the
Thule Group or the
Vril Society before the
Nazi rise to power.
These groups were in contact with the Grays and
some of their human allies in Tibet.
In point of fact, Hitler,
Alfred Rosenberg and Thule Group leader Dietrich Eckart began
meeting as early as 1920.
The Thule Group was in communication with
Alien Beings who asserted a claim to the planet Earth, and offered
Hitler and Company a piece of the action. But the real leader of
this unholy human-alien alliance was General Karl Haushofer, a close
associate of Rudolph Hess, who effectively wrote Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
Hess ultimately identified Haushofer as “the magician, the secret
master” of the Nazi revolution. Hess, the last survivor of the Nazi
leadership and last known member of the Thule Group, finally died at
Spandau Prison at the age of 93, and under most mysterious
circumstances, only a few years ago.
The level of involvement between the inner Nazi cadre - particularly
the Death’s Head SS and the Gray Aliens is profound. Their secret
initiation called “The Stifling Air” actually involved contact with
so-called “deep Aliens” who cannot breathe our atmosphere. In any
case, the Aliens actually had no vested interest in the Nazis or any
other group of humans, who they fear and despise.
Their only purpose
is to retard human evolution in any way they can, because an evolved
humanity, they feel (rightly or wrongly), will one day not only
defeat them on the Earth, but will unseat them among the very stars.
So, among us are agents of dissension, of crackpot schemes and
nightmarish ideas. They terrorize the unwary, try cutting deals with
Earthly governments, and avoid those Guardians - that is humans
already evolved into Higher Beings - who they are no match for.
All that I have learned in UFOlogy, where I started out looking for
“advanced beings from other planets” like everyone else - has taught
me that we humans are, in potential, the most advanced, developed
beings in the galaxy.
The positive aliens are here not to help, but
like the Magi in the Nativity Story, to witness the birth of The New
The Grays, insectoids and other vampiric nightmares from
dying stars are here to suck out a little of the life energy that
they themselves have so little of, and to delay the inevitable
evolution of humanity triumphant.
Mark Probert’s 16 Guardians are
merely the first.
We, as they tell us, and as intercepted cipher
messages have told me and all with eyes to see, will someday be the Coming Guardians ourselves.
