The Templar flag Columbus and da Gama traveled
under was the dominant economic (and therefore if for no other
reason) force in the three centuries before they set sail. Not just
in Europe as we have shown, but in the entire world, these progeny
of the Phoenician Brotherhood ended feudal socio-political
strangleholds and opened the way for new possibilities. For these
reasons and the eventual weakening of the church influence and
Inquisitions (though that is what the church started against THEM!)
we can truly be thankful.
This superficial evaluation is only one aspect of what we analyzed
with input from all available quarters and presented a real and true
threat from the continued macho or competitive nature
of those in pursuit of power. Their progeny has lost much of the
righteous underpinnings of the Templar zeal. Needless to say
their influence has not been exposed in the cultural history of our
various media including schools.
Therefore constant harping on the
subject is somewhat warranted. I only seek to set the stage for
their specific history and influence on the time of Marco Polo
and another ’fiction’ that was used to create the impression that
there was a need for ’discovery’ of the ’New World’.
The idea that the land of the Dragons
in China was not part of a world order continues to the present.
There are many perspectives on the origin of the Templars and
why they were given Papal ’carte-blanche’ but let me quote
Gardner again to see something
far more ancient than most scholars purporting to know when
Templars or Masons became a part of our cultural fabric.
He is talking about a re-structuring of much more ancient mystery
schools at this juncture.
"It has long been a customary
Jewish practice to hang meat for blood-letting before
cooking and consumption, but in contrast the Christian faith
is especially concerned with the figurative ingestion of blood.
In the Christian tradition it is customary to take the
Communion sacrament (the Eucharist), wherein wine is
drunk from the sacred chalice, symbolically representing the
blood of Jesus, the life-blood of the Messianic line.
Could it be, therefore, that the
modern Christian custom is an unwitting throwback to some
distant pre-Noah rite of actually ingesting blood?
If so, then since we also know
that the chalice is a wholly female symbol which has
always been emblematic of the womb, might this even
have been an extract from divine menstrual blood
which, as we have seen (Chapter 10), was revered as
The answer to these questions is
yes, that was precisely the custom - but it was not so unsavoury
as it might seem. (1)
Few of us think to enquire about the
ultimate sources of many of today’s bodily supplements, and those in
the know are generally reluctant to tell us. The premarin hormone,
for example, is made from the urine of pregnant mares, while
some forms of growth hormone and insulin are
manufactured from ’E.coli’, a human faecal bacterium.
Before considering this ancient practice in detail, it is worth
reminding ourselves that the edict to abstain from blood
came not from Enki the Wise but from
Enlil-Jehovah, the god of wrath
and vengeance who had instigated the Flood, wrought havoc in Ur and
Babylon and endeavoured to deceive Adam with regard to the
Tree of Knowledge. This was not a god who liked people
and the Sumerian records are very clear in this regard. If he
forbade the intake of blood, this was not likely to have been an
edict for the benefit of Noah and his descendants - it was
most probably to their detriment.
The menstrual Star Fire (’Elixir Rubeus’) of the
goddess, being essentially regarded as fluid intelligence, was
symbolically represented as the all-seeing eye (the circle
with a dot again), or as the fiery cross (the ’rosi-crucis’ -
the Circle with the cross), precisely as depicted in the Mark of
The emblems were later used by the mystery school of
ancient Egypt, particularly that of the priest-prince
Ankhfn-khonsu (c.2170 BC - Check
Book of the Law
and the name at the end of it), which was formally
established as the Dragon Court by the twelfth-dynasty
Another of the most prominent mystery schools was the
Great White Brotherhood of
Rameses III (c. 1450 BC) - so called, it is often said, because
of their white raiment, but actually named because of their
preoccupation with a mysterious
white powder (Through ’high-spin’
atomic attunement able to levitate the pyramid blocks, he says).
According to the Supreme Grand Lodge of the Ancient and Mystical
Order Rosae Crucis, there were thirty-nine men and women on the
High Council of the Brotherhood, who sat at the Temple of
Karnak in Luxor. (2)
A branch off this Order became more
generally known as the Egyptian Therapeutae, who in
Heliopolis and Judaea, were identified as the Essenes.
(3) It was into this
White Brotherhood of wise therapeutics and healers (the original
Rosicrucians) that Jesus was later initiated to
progress through the degrees, and it was his high standing in this
regard which gained him the often used designation of ’Master’...
’essaios’: that is, something secret or mystic. (In the
Norse tradition, the gods are called the ’Asen’, the
guardians of purity, and the word has a similar root.)...
In the hermetic lore of the ancient Egyptian mystery school,
this process of achieving enlightened consciousness was of express
importance, with spiritual regeneration taking place by degrees
through the thirty-three vertebrae of the spinal column (including
the tail bones or sacrum and coccyx) until
reaching the pituitary gland which invokes the pineal body.
The science of this regeneration is one of the ’Lost Keys’ of
Freemasonry, and it is the reason why ancient Freemasonry
was founded upon thirty-three degrees.
Though they have impressive pedigrees and lots of nice myths I am
sure their knowledge is limited by the lack of ethics entailed in
the elitist attitudes and acts of their members. Levitation
and use of cosmic thought field potentials including one dimensional
harmonic force and the probable ’Lost Chord’ pre-dates these
people, in my mind or point of view.
MacDari is a Masonic
linguist who suggests this time was even before the building of the
Sphinx, and he says Phre-Masonry of the Lord Sun God Iesa
was an early Brotherhood of Man that Jesus was named
after. Gardner admits to ’pre-Noah’ knowledge and probably
has an open-mind about earlier roots, but his story focuses on
the Bible and the Pendragon Grail legends.
