Parts two and three of WiH are presented as a dialog between my
spirit guides and me.
However, I wish to make it clear that very
little of the material presented here was channeled in a single
session. I would receive a few hundred words by automatic writing
while in a fairly deep trance-state, then I would rewrite it while
in a normal state of consciousness.
Later, I would go back into
trance to transmit the edited text to my spirit guides, and they
would suggest corrections and additions. This process, repeated over
and over, produced the dialog you are about to read. My spirit
guides are responsible for the content and wording of both the
questions and the answers.
This dialog starts with their answer to my request for knowledge of
the Great Secret...
A. The spiritual beings worshiped as gods by many religious groups
are impostors. They are nothing more than the disembodied spirits of
human beings who refuse to reincarnate. They remain on the astral
plane, where they exercise power over other spirits and over living
We call them "Theocrats," a name also used to describe the
ancient Egyptian Pharaohs and other earthly rulers who justified
their demand for absolute political power by posing as divine
The concept that gods are impostors is the first postulate of a
theory that provides explicit answers for almost any question about
the nature of spiritual reality. Part of this theory is scientific.
It explains what the soul is made of and how it functions. It also
explains how the body, mind, and soul are inter-related and how
psychic powers operate.
The rest of the theory is political. It
describes the political organization of spirits on the astral plane,
and the relationships that different factions of disembodied spirits
have with living people.
The Theocrats are violating natural laws when they refuse to
The souls of all living beings are constructed to
incarnate and draw energy from the physical body. This is the only
natural and efficient way in which the soul can get the vital energy
it needs to function and regenerate itself. Although the mechanics
of this process are quite complicated, we will explain them in some
detail to allow you to understand the rest of the theory.
The soul is actually an astral body, made up of a special form of
matter. This matter is composed of subatomic particles like ordinary
matter, but with different properties. Let us call this special form
of matter astral matter, and the ordinary form physical matter.
The subatomic particles that compose astral matter have different
properties from the particles that compose physical matter.
Physicists on Earth have named and described some of these
properties, such as mass, spin, and electrical charge. You also have
terms like "charm" in your vocabulary for properties the scientific
community apparently understands much less clearly.
The principal difference between astral matter and physical matter
is that all astral subatomic particles possess much less mass than
equivalent particles of physical matter. The charges and the mass
ratios of the particles of astral atoms are about the same as those
of physical atoms.
In other words, the particles that compose the
nucleus of an atom of astral matter have a positive or neutral
electrical charge and their mass is greater than that of the
negatively charged particles that revolve around the nucleus.
However, the astral subatomic particles equivalent to physical
protons and neutrons are much less massive than physical electrons.
Since physicists often describe physical electrons as having
"negligible mass" compared with physical protons and neutrons, this
means that the total mass of astral atoms is extremely small.
Q. How can astral matter exist in the presence of physical matter?
Why don't the tiny astral atoms simply get sucked in by the
gravitational attraction of the physical atoms and end up orbiting
them the way electrons do?
A. Astral subatomic particles have a different characteristic that
determines gravitational attraction.
They are attracted by gravity
to each other but not to particles of physical matter. In fact, the
astral atoms and molecules that make up the soul occupy the same
space as the physical matter that makes up the body.
Both kinds of
matter are mostly empty space between particles anyway, and since
there is no gravitational attraction between the two kinds of
matter, the molecules simply slip by one another. This also explains
people's inability to see astral matter or detect it with physical
Energy also exists in two different forms, physical energy and
astral energy. The photons that make up the two types again have
different characteristics. Under most circumstances, astral photons
do not react with physical subatomic particles. Nor do physical
photons react with astral particles.
However, the exception is
Q. You're saying that light and other electromagnetic energy do not
affect astral matter. Does this mean that psychic energy is not in
the electromagnetic spectrum at all, but in a different one?
A. Yes. Advanced civilizations possess a unified field theory that
describes the relationship between the two, but we can't describe it
to you right now. What's important in this discussion is that
psychic or astral energy normally works only on astral matter. It
does not produce physical or chemical changes in physical matter.
The reverse is also true.
Q. How does psychokinesis work then, or does it exist at all?
A. It exists, but it's nothing like what you now think. In fact,
your whole concept of the nature of psychic powers is a jumble of
oversimplifications and errors. Psychokinesis does not move or
change physical matter directly, but can do so by working through
the links between physical and astral matter. These links are the
"Secret of Life."
The difference between living and non-living matter is that living
matter is linked to astral matter but non-living matter is not.
Complex organic molecules of physical matter can form a chemical
bond with similarly constructed molecules of astral matter, and the
resulting structure shows the characteristics of life: irritability
and the ability to reproduce.
This process is very complicated, and your knowledge of physics is
not adequate to understand all it completely. Here's an attempt to
explain why astral matter can react chemically with physical matter
only within living molecules and not within simpler molecules. It
has to do with the vibrational frequencies of photons produced when
electrons of both physical and astral matter change energy levels
within complex organic molecules.
These frequencies are the same
allowing physical photons to convert to astral and vice-versa.
happens only in certain kinds of molecules, not in all. These energy
conversions allow a sort of chemical bonding to occur if the two
molecules are similar enough.
Q. Does this mean that astral matter - in other words, the soul -
plays a part in cell division?
A. Yes, in the whole genetic process: it affects the reduplication
of DNA. It also affects many different aspects of cell metabolism.
And the breaking of the molecular bonds between physical molecules
and astral molecules causes the phenomenon commonly called "death".
Q. How does this tie in with the idea that the body supplies the
energy to nourish the soul?
A. Some of the electromagnetic energy generated chemically by the
cell's metabolic processes is converted into astral energy by the
links between the physical and astral molecules.
This energy flows
into the astral matter that composes the soul, powering its various
functions and providing the raw material for regeneration of its
In other words, some electro-magnetic energy is
converted into astral energy, passed into the soul, and converted
into astral matter there to perform cellular growth and repairs.
The astral plane is actually higher on an ecological energy chain
than the Earth plane, which means it receives less total usable
energy. Plants convert solar energy into chemical energy. When
animals eat the plants, they absorb this energy and use most of it
in growth, repair of tissues, moving around, and other activities.
However, some of it is also converted into astral energy and passed
into the soul.
Since each of these energy conversion processes is
less than completely efficient, each link in the energy chain has
access to less total energy than the one below it.
Q. The impression of the human soul I get from this is that it's
exactly the same size and shape as the body, linked to it
cell-by-cell and molecule-by-molecule. This is very different from
my previous concept, which was that it is attached to the body at
only one point through the traditional "silver cord." Please
A. Human beings actually have two souls, not one. So do all other
animals; but plants have only one.
The soul we've been talking about
so far is a primitive structure, an astral body that is merely an
analog of the physical body. It is alive in the sense that it is
made up of molecules of living astral matter, but it is not
sentient. It has a nervous system but not a mind. The true soul, the
one you were just talking about, is a separate structure of astral
Using the term "somatic soul" for the primitive soul linked
cell-by-cell to the body and "astral soul" for the other will make
it easier to discuss this subject. The astral soul is a body of
astral matter linked to the somatic soul's nervous system by what
you call the silver cord.
This is structured like a segment of plant
root with feeder roots at both ends. The feeders at one end tap into
the somatic soul's nervous system; those at the other end tap into
the astral soul's nervous system.
Energy flows into the astral soul
from the somatic soul and indirectly from the body through this
cord. Energy flowing through the silver cord is the astral soul's
only truly efficient source of nourishment.
Q. This makes sense. I take it, then, that the silver cord breaks
when the body dies, leaving the astral soul free.
A. Correct. Remember, though, that the astral soul loses its best
source of energy when it separates from the body.
By contrast, when
the body dies, the somatic soul does not also separate and live on
independently. It simply decomposes when the body decomposes.
Remember, it's very closely linked to the body with chemical bonds.
Q. I conclude from this that a new somatic soul is created during
the embryological development of every new human being.
A. Correct. In fact, a cell of living physical matter can't divide
unless the astral cell linked to it also divides. Living cells and
molecules can exist only in pairs, one physical, and one astral.
This is why many complex organic molecules undergo chemical
reactions differently in living cells from the way they do in a test
Q. I assume, then, that
reincarnation occurs when an existing astral
soul attaches itself to the developing somatic soul of a fetus.
You've also given a reason why the astral soul needs to reincarnate:
to link itself to a source of vital energy and nourishment. Where in
the process of embryological development does this occur?
A. There are two very different reincarnation processes.
commonest occurs even before conception. Sexual activity often
attracts a nearby spirit and causes a temporary attachment to a
woman's somatic soul at the genital chakra. (The same attachment can
happen to a man, but it generally lasts only a few minutes, because
the attachment point in a male's somatic soul is vestigial, whereas
the female's is fully functional.)
The attachment can last up to
about twenty-four hours; and if conception occurs during this time,
some of the hormonal secretions that accompany the process cause the
woman's nervous system to send energy to her somatic soul that keeps
the attachment intact through the entire pregnancy.
pregnancy, when the somatic soul of the fetus becomes sufficiently
developed, another hormonal change causes the mother's genital
chakra to reject the link to the attached soul, which then remains
attached only to the fetus.
Q. I think this information might also explain why students of sex
magic in both the East and the West have written so much about the
relationship between the female menstrual cycle and various psychic
and spiritual phenomena. Most of them have noticed that kundalini
energies vary significantly in both quantity and nature at various
points during the cycle, and that there is also a connection to
mediumship and even possession.
A. Yes, this information can help magicians work out better
theoretical explanations for the mechanisms of such phenomena.
present, the theories they use to explain their observed data are
among the most complex and mystical hypotheses you'll find in occult
books. This same concept should also be useful to people trying to
explain some of the phenomena described by
Communion: women experiencing phantom pregnancies after "UFO
abduction" experiences, etc.
To get back to our discussion of the mechanisms of reincarnation,
the primitive, involuntary form of reincarnation occurs in many of
the more intelligent types of "lower animals," and it happens
spontaneously to any human soul at a relatively low state of psychic
development who happens to come close to a couple having
Although it allows the soul to survive death, it has
serious disadvantages for both mother and child.
All during her pregnancy the mother suffers serious psychic energy
imbalances, which can cause her both mental and physical illness.
These are usually more uncomfortable than they are dangerous, but
the damage suffered by the attached astral soul is often much more
serious. Signals intended for the mother's astral soul are also
transmitted into the attached soul, and they usually scramble the
contents of its astral mind quite badly.
For this reason, few people
who reincarnate by this method show the typical characteristics of
the twice born: past-life memories, precocious intellectual or
psychic development, etc.
Q. What happens if an existing astral soul doesn't link to the
mother's somatic soul? Does this cause an early miscarriage? Recent
medical evidence shows that about half of all pregnancies terminate
spontaneously within a week or two after conception; since an early
miscarriage of this type closely resembles normal menstruation, the
woman isn't aware she was ever pregnant.
A. This has nothing to do with reincarnation, but has purely
Every human being has to have an astral soul. If an
existing astral soul is not already attached to the mother, the
fetus starts generating an astral soul of its own late in pregnancy.
At this point, two things can happen. Either a late reincarnation
can occur, or the baby is born with a completely new soul,
spontaneously created during its embryonic development.
The people the Hindus call "twice born" are those in which an astral
soul at a reasonably high state of development has incarnated
shortly before or after birth, a process that keeps the infant from
developing its own new soul. On the average, people with twice-born
souls have a head start over those with new souls or souls received
through early reincarnation.
The astral soul of a twice-born person
transfers memories into the physical mind during infancy and
childhood that "teach it how to learn." This is equivalent to
raising the person's effective intelligence and creativity.
Energy to nourish the soul flows from the body through the somatic
soul to the astral soul, but there are smaller energy flows both
ways that convey information.
The astral souls of the twice born
give them a head start by feeding valuable information into the
Q. Why do the Theocrats refuse to reincarnate?
A. Remember Satan in Milton's "Paradise Lost" saying, "Better to
reign in Hell than serve in Heaven"?
The Theocrats are spirits with
great knowledge and psychic power. They are a sort of ruling class
on the astral plane, and they don't want to give up their power and
privilege by reincarnating. Highly advanced souls who aren't
Theocrats reincarnate and take the chance that their soul can
properly educate their new mind, and that their next reincarnation
will be a pleasant and valuable one.
But it still involves taking a
chance: the body might have hidden flaws that they don't detect
before incarnating, or the child's earthly environment can take an
unforeseen turn for the worse.
Also, the late reincarnation process itself is as traumatic as the
physical ordeals of giving birth or being born. This trauma erases
many of the memories stored in the astral soul and damages the
programming that governs the astral soul's functioning. The
Theocrats are too selfish and egotistical to take these chances,
even though the alternative is extremely immoral.
Another reason why Theocrats don't want to reincarnate is that human
beings have two minds as well as two souls. One mind is in the
physical body's brain, the other is in the astral soul, and both
have separate consciousness. Normally, the astral mind is conscious
while the body sleeps and unconscious while the physical mind is
awake. The two are conscious simultaneously only during certain
states of altered consciousness.
This "time-sharing" is humiliating
for the astral mind's ego, which considers itself superior to that
of the physical mind. Theocrats want total consciousness for their
astral ego, in addition to power over other spirits.
This brings us to one of the most important things we have to tell
you in this whole series of communications.
The nourishment that
disembodied spirits receive from living people as radiant psychic
energy is not enough to sustain them by itself. This is why all
non-Theocratic spirits reincarnate within ten to fifty years after
physical death: if they don't, the astral soul starts to degenerate
because of a sort of malnutrition.
The astral matter that makes up
its tissues can't regenerate itself properly and reverse the effects
of entropy. So the choice is reincarnation or illness, insanity, and
The Theocrats have found an alternative to this, but it is an evil
one: cannibalism. They use their telepathic powers to hypnotize
spirits less highly developed than they are; then they attach the
silver cord to them just as if the other astral soul were the
somatic soul of an infant.
They can draw out enough energy this way
to sustain themselves on the astral plane indefinitely, but the
process destroys the other spirit.
Q. This is very frightening. Can they do this to just any other
spirit, and can they do it to an astral soul incarnated in a body?
A. Fortunately, no to both. If they could, neither you nor we would
be here talking about it.
The Theocrats would have eaten up all of
us just to get rid of us. They claim to be gods, but their powers
are actually quite limited. Some of them are both more knowledgeable
and psychically more powerful than most of the rest of us, living
and disembodied, but they are far from omnipotent.
They can't damage an embodied soul or override its conscious will,
and they usually can't capture and devour disembodied souls who
resist them, except for the weak and untrained ones that mediums
call "lost souls." And even the majority of lost souls are capable
of random psychokinetic bursts that allow them to flee the Theocrats
The Theocrats obtain victims by posing as gods and
persuading religious believers to enter their bands by promising
them "eternal bliss in Heaven."
Q. Please tell me more about the Theocrats and how they operate. For
example, who were they when they lived on Earth?
A. Many notorious tyrants, conquerors, evil religious leaders, black
magicians, and criminals have become Theocrats after death, but so
have some people whom history calls saints or benign geniuses.
corrupts, and the prospect of achieving immortality corrupts even
more. Many people with highly developed souls whose earthly lives
were lived quite ethically chose to become Theocrats after death.
This has been especially true of people who were religiously devout,
then found out the horrible truth about their gods after death. If
they were too powerful for the Theocrats to enslave and devour, some
became members of the Invisible College and fought Theocracy; but
others became Theocrats themselves.
The temptation is very strong,
because the Theocrats as a class have ruled both the Earth and its
astral plane throughout most of human history. For example, most of
the medieval Popes and other religious leaders notorious for being
cynical and power-hungry are now Theocrats.
So are many famous
occult leaders, from Cagliostro down to
Q. I've learned a lot from Crowley's writings and from members of
occult organizations he founded or influenced, but I've always also
felt a deep emotional revulsion for him.
A. While he was alive, Crowley was very similar to a double agent in
espionage. Sometimes he helped us in our battles against the
Theocrats, but at other times he worked for them.
Of course, we were
always aware that no matter which side he said he was on, his only
real loyalties were to himself. This kind of egotism is a typical
Theocratic personality-type, and proves that Crowley had been a
Theocratic spirit between lives many times before.
Right now, he's
working with various Theocrats of an occultist persuasion, trying to
turn some of the occult groups he founded into cults based on his
worship. He talked frequently about doing this during his life, and
now he's in a position to put it into practice.
Q. This makes the War in Heaven sound more like the Allies against
the Nazis than the forces of good against the forces of evil.
A. It's all just politics. Both sides are working in their own
interests. The important thing is that the self-interest of the
Invisible College and of living people is the same. We acknowledge
that we are part of the same human race as you. The Theocrats are
trying to become literally superhuman.
Q. Are you implying, then, that the time-honored goal of so many
occultists - that of becoming or merging with a god-like being - is
evil? That trying to do this turns people into Theocratic spirits
who literally eat souls?
A. This question doesn't have a yes-or-no answer, and before we can
answer it all, we'll have to give you a lot more background
information. The question isn't really a matter of morality so much
as one of dealing realistically with natural law.
For example, it is
a serious violation of natural law for a disembodied astral soul to
take on large amounts of energy by draining it from another spirit,
because there is no template for determining how the energy is
assimilated, as there is when the astral soul is attached to a body.
In the latter case, the somatic soul acts as such a template.
the somatic soul transmits energy through the silver cord to nourish
the astral soul, the pulses of energy are arranged in patterns that
keep the growth of astral tissues in proper balance.
By contrast, when Theocrats absorb energy from other spirits, there
is no such template, so the growth-pattern is random and may put the
functioning of the astral soul out of balance. Because imbalances in
the astral nervous system can cause irrational thinking and
behavior, most of the Theocrats are insane.
And the bigger and older
they are, very often the crazier they are.
Many Theocrats do
irrational and self-destructive things, and most of them eventually
become so insane that other Theocrats destroy them.
Q. This means the Theocrats aren't really immortal?
A. Most of them aren't.
They have the potential to be, but only by
properly controlling the energies they assimilate, and few of them
have the knowledge to do this. There are some very large, old, and
stable Theocrats on the astral plane who do seem to have this
knowledge, but they don't cause much trouble. They feed themselves
by stealing spirits from other Theocrats and don't work directly
with living people, so we don't worry about them much.
younger Theocrats that cause the most trouble, both for the
Invisible College and for living people.
Q. Why do the Theocrats maintain bands of spirit followers, and what
are these bands like?
A. The Theocrats enslave other spirits to provide psychic energy, as
slaves or employees on Earth provide physical labor.
Theocratic bands can contain from a couple of dozen spirits to
several thousand, with the average in the low hundreds. The
paintings and poems that describe a Heaven containing millions of
souls are inaccurate.
The daily activities of a Fundamentalist
Theocratic band organized as Heaven are similar to a church service
as such sects hold them on Earth, except that they go on
perpetually. The Theocrat in charge poses as the Lord God
and subordinate Theocrats pose as Christ, various Angels and
Apostles, and so forth.
God quotes the same Biblical passages and
preaches the same sermons as preachers in the same sect do on Earth,
and the congregation joins in singing the same hymns.
Dead Fundamentalists in Heaven find out they even still have to
confess their sins and receive divine forgiveness, because they are
still capable of thinking "rebellious and impure thoughts."
course, since they are in constant, direct telepathic contact with
their God, the process is simple and automatic. Christians in Heaven
are kept in a perpetual state of religious ecstasy, which activates
their psychic powers under the control of their God.
leaders of the band then channel this collective psychic energy to
perform whatever functions they consider necessary.
Most of the activities have to do with the survival of the band, and
especially of the Theocratic dictator posing as God.
recruits new members from among the recently deceased, steals souls
from other bands, fights to keep spirits like us from liberating
members of the band, and so on.
Q. I still don't have a clear picture of how the Theocratic bands on
the astral plane relate to living people.
A. Each Theocratic band has to have a working relationship with a
group of living people, often a religious congregation.
political groups are also used; and now more and more Theocratic
bands are controlling groups of people whose common interest is
popular music, sports, or something else centered around the
Traditionally, the majority of Theocrats hung
around places of worship, but now you can find them almost any place
that crowds gather.
Q. Please clarify this. You talk about spirits being on the astral
plane as if it's a place, but you also say, "hang around places of
worship." Just where is the astral plane? Is it on Earth, in another
dimension, or what?
astral plane is a condition, not a place.
A spirit, meaning
an astral soul, on the astral plane is in the condition of not being
bound to physical matter through the silver cord. The Earth plane is
the surface of the planet Earth as you perceive it with your
physical senses. The astral plane is that same place as we perceive
it with our psychic senses.
We and the Theocrats and all spirits
live on the same world you do. Spirits are present around you all
the time, and if you enter the correct state of consciousness to put
your psychic senses under conscious control, you can perceive them
Q. This makes more sense than anything else I've ever heard about
the astral plane. However, you and practically every other
disembodied spirit I've communicated with telepathically or seen
quoted in the literature still use the term "astral plane" as if it
were a place. You make statements like,
"When the soul separates from
the body and arrives on the astral plane…"
Why do you do this?
A. It's just a verbal convention, but we continue to use it to keep
our communications with living people consistent with those of other
spirits. You do the sane thing when you use illogical idioms and
other grammatical structures simply to conform to common usage.
Q. You're right. To get back to the Theocrats, then, every religious
congregation has its own individual god?
A. Yes, though there are also hierarchies of Theocrats on the astral
plane that work very much like political hierarchies on Earth.
Q. Does this mean that each Christian congregation has a Theocrat
who claims to be an Angel or a Saint or something in charge of it,
with some Theocrat equivalent of the Pope out there somewhere
claiming to be the Lord God Jehovah Himself?
A. This is roughly correct, but the reality isn't this simple.
are many such Jehovahs, thousands of them. The Theocrats who
communicate telepathically to individual Christians when they pray
also call themselves God or Christ or the Holy Spirit because
what the believers expect, but they also claim to be angels or
saints or devils when that seems appropriate.
Q. How are the Christian Theocrats organized - according to sect, or
geographically, or what?
The structure is very complex and constantly changing as
Theocrats fight among themselves. The intellectual content of
Christian dogma among the living believers is a factor in this, as
is the personality-structure of use religious mind control to
program the minds of living believers, and the way they are
organized as a political structure on the astral plane.
structure of the Theocratic bands on the astral plane is even more
There are many different kinds of spirits that you could lump under
the rough heading of Theocrats. High-level Theocrats are rulers who
claim to be gods or important servants of gods, angels and the like,
and these all have bands of subordinates or servants working under
They control these subordinate spirits by direct psychic
means, something like hypnotism, or by persuasion or intimidation.
Q. This sounds very much like certain kinds of political structure
on Earth, both in governments and in churches. I take it the
Theocrats within each band have an ascending power structure, with a
sort of "dictator playing god" at the top, and other classes of
Theocrats under them with different degrees of power and privilege.
And the lowest class at the bottom is like cattle, eaten by the
A. It is a very complicated structure, and it varies a great deal
from band to band. For instance, there are dead Christians who think
they are in Heaven, sitting around the throne of Jehovah "eternally
singing his praises," when they're really just his slaves and
possibly his dinner as well.
Now you understand the real
significance of "Holy Communion." As practiced in Heaven, there's
nothing more unholy.
Q. I have always been revolted by the symbolic cannibalism in the
Eucharist ritual, and I've heard a lot of other people say the same
thing. There's a terrible irony to the Christians eating the body of
their god during life, and then having the process reversed after
death. Only it's not funny, because in Heaven, the cannibalism is no
longer symbolic. It's real.
A. Yes. And it's not just the high-level Theocrats who participate.
All members of a Theocratic band are offered the Host, who is a
rebellious or degenerating member. Not all souls who enter Heaven
can survive even through the obscene practice of feeding on other
Many souls simply aren't developed sufficiently to survive
very long even when nurtured within a Theocratic band, though they
would survive if they reincarnated.
Q. Are there also Theocratic bands organized into a version of the
Christian Hell, with the boss Theocrat claiming to be Satan and
various subordinates claiming to be demons?
Some people who deliberately become Satanists on Earth hold
positions of power in "Hell" after they die, and the lower classes
are composed of Christians who believed the basic mythology but had
too little self-confidence to believe themselves "saved."
irony about Christian Hells is that individual believers usually
don't have much power over whether they go to Heaven or Hell.
is determined more by which particular band of Theocrats gets to
them as they're in the process of dying. All except the most devout
believers have enough self-doubts about the strength of their faith
and the certainty of their salvation that Satanist Theocrats can get
control of them as they're dying and lead them off to Hell.
However, a Theocratic band organized as Heaven is more stable and
easier to control than one organized as Hell, so Heavens are more
common. There is no other significant difference between the two
anyway: they are both just political institutions run to serve the
interests of the Theocrats.
The Moslem, Hindu, and Buddhist
mythologies also describe a variety of afterlife states resembling
the Christian Heaven or Hell;
they too are Theocratic institutions
designed to imprison the souls of believers after death.
As fanatical belief in organized religion declines in the modern
era, the Theocrats have even devised ways to persuade atheists and
agnostics to join Theocratic bands after death.
The most common is
simply to invite them to join what appears to be a community of
spirits that includes some of their previously deceased relatives or
friends, or some famous person they greatly admire.
Q. Does this mean there's a "Rock'n'Roll Heaven" presided over by
Theocrats who claim to be the shades of Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix,
Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, etc.?
A. There isn't just one, but many of them, and the number grows
There are also "Heavens" whose "gods" claim to be
politicians, movie stars, writers, and scientists, or even fictional
characters. However, we'd like to delay a detailed discussion of
this until later. It's easier to describe the nature of Theocracy
using the religious infrastructure that's been traditional through
most of human history.
Once we've done that, we will describe how
the Theocrats have changed their methods because of modern
technology and other factors, and what they intend to do in the
For now, we will continue describing the traditional political
structure of the Theocratic bands on the astral plane, especially
those organized to resemble the Christian Heaven.
Most of the
lower-level spirits in these bands have no idea of what's actually
going on, but genuinely believe that the afterlife is exactly what
their earthly faith taught them it would be.
Q. People who have had point-of-death experiences have often
reported being met by Jesus, angels, or other religious figures who
invited them into Heaven; but meeting spirits who claim to be
previously deceased relatives or friends is even more common. Is
this part of the recruiting process?
Point-of-death experiences represent a major mistake by the
Theocrats: trying to recruit people who are close to death but not
really dying. The silver cord is stretched out very long but not
broken, and the mind is in a state of consciousness very similar to
that occurring during the actual death process.
perceive this and try to recruit the person into their band, but
nothing happens because the silver cord is still intact, and
disembodied spirits lack the psychic power to break it. Eventually,
the person returns to normal consciousness and remembers a
We call this a major mistake by the Theocrats because many
point-of-death experiences reveal information about the afterlife
that the Theocrats would like to conceal. Sometimes, members of the
Invisible College show up during the encounter and warn the person
that the Theocrats are impostors who enslave and destroy souls.
a few remember this warning consciously and talk about it
afterwards, but many more are affected by it enough to become
hostile to the Theocratic aspects of religion.
Q. I remember reading passages in accounts of point-of-death
experiences that support both of your statements. Especially, many
people who have had such experiences tend to avoid church attendance
and involvement with any sort of traditional religious dogma from
then on. I've always been somewhat mystified by this, because it
would seem logical for such an experience to strengthen faith in
religion, not weaken it.
A. The greatest enemy
of Theocracy is
The more that
people find out about the true nature of the afterlife and other
aspects of spiritual reality, the harder it is for the Theocrats to
delude and enslave them. This is why so many Theocratic religious
sects forbid deliberate mediumistic contact with the spirit world.
But point-of-death experiences are accidents, and there isn't much
that the Theocrats can do to prevent them.
Q. When people see the spirits of dead relatives waiting to greet
then during point-of-death experiences, are these fakes like the
Theocrats pretending to be Jesus, or are the other spirits really
A. Quite often, they really are.
Theocratic bands often contain many
members of one family. There are several reasons for this.
Frequently, whole families belong to the same church congregation
and are recruited, after death, into the Theocratic band that
controls it. Even if not, ties of family affection are also used to
recruit spirits after death. One of the most important activities of
every Theocratic band is obtaining new members to replace the souls
the band devours.
Maintaining a relationship with an organized group of living people
also allows the Theocrats to maintain a social and political system
here on Earth working in their interest.
Theocratic bands maintain
their relationships with the living by using
religious mind control,
which should be described in a separate chapter.
Let us end this
chapter by pointing out that every single one of the ideas at the
core of traditional deistic doctrine is a lie.
"Only God (under various specific names in different sects) is good:
people are basically evil and are incapable of improving themselves
morally by their own efforts." This is a lie.
"Only God is naturally immortal, but people can gain immortality by
doing proper service for the Deity." This is a lie.
"Human beings can receive forgiveness for their sins, and divine
strength to prop up their various weaknesses, by ‘Letting God into
their hearts' i.e., by creating a powerful psychic bond between
themselves and the deity." This is also a lie.
Q. From what I've learned so far, the biggest lie of all is that the
"gods" worshiped by organized religions are "archetypes of virtue."
We humans are bad enough, but the Theocrats are obviously many times
worse than the worst of us. And it's not Satan who's the real
"Father of Lies." It's God.
However, the important thing to realize about this whole
body of lies is that it makes people weaker and more evil than they
already are, and increases their dependency on the Theocrats, as we
shall describe next.
Religious Mind Control
Q. Exactly how does
religious mind control work?
A. It involves what modern psychologists call "operant
conditioning": altering behavior and mental programming by positive
and negative reinforcement on the physical and sensory level.
Theocrats strengthen this conditioning on the physical level by
transmitting ideas and emotions directly into people's subconscious
minds by telepathy.
Religious mind-control techniques are easier to
understand if you realize that the Theocrats use people's own
psychic powers to control other members of the congregation.
Q. I've attended enough religious services of many different kinds
to know that they frequently put believers into an altered state of
consciousness and that they often generate quite a bit of
power. Is this what you're talking about?
A. The key to the whole religious mind-control technique is putting
people into a state of consciousness best called the "religious
It is essentially a mild hypnotic trance in which the
conscious will is awake but passive, as opposed to deep trances, in
which it is completely inactive. People in a religious trance are
completely aware of what is going on around them, and are recording
these events in their memories exactly as they would in a normal
They are also capable of thinking and acting
voluntarily, but can only do so within certain very definite limits
without breaking out of the religious trance and assuming normal
Q. How do people enter the religious trance?
A. People fall into a state very similar to the religious trance
when they read, listen to music, watch television or a movie, listen
intently to a lecture or radio broadcast, etc.
The passive state
that the will assumes during these activities is often called
identification with the sensory intake, as in "reader
identification" or "audience identification." Identifying with what
is being read, seen, or heard, actually means accepting the sensory
intake uncreatively and uncritically on both the intellectual and
It also means agreeing with the ideas being
presented and feeling the same emotions being described in the song,
story, play, etc.
Q. It's fairly common to describe someone who's concentrating
intently on reading, listening to music, or watching television, as
"hypnotized." You're saying that this is literally true?
A. Yes, but remember, it's a rather light trance.
If the material
being presented begins to contradict the person's existing opinions
or knowledge, identification breaks down. He or she assumes full
normal consciousness and thinks, "I don't agree with this," or "I
don't understand this," or "This is wrong." However, identification
with sensory input can make people accept things they would reject
if they were fully conscious, as long as the input isn't
controversial or unfamiliar enough to break their concentration.
Identification with sensory input is just the first step in entering
the religious trance state. Once the conscious will becomes passive,
the flow of character, assuming a level closer to that during sleep
than that during normal wakefulness.
In a person fully trained to
enter the religious trance, electrical activity in the physical
nervous system becomes stable at exactly the right level to allow an
equal flow of energy into and out of the astral soul. This allows
the astral will to awaken partially, and creates a direct, two-way
link between the physical mind and the astral mind.
As long as the religious trance lasts, information can pass
reasonably freely between the physical mind and the astral mind and
Also, the physical mind can receive impressions from the
psychic senses of the astral soul more or less directly.
Q. How does this compare to the trance state I'm in to receive this
communication? Is it the same?
A. No. You are in a "psychic trance," which is not the same as a
It's a much less passive state of consciousness,
and involves much larger flows of energy into and out of the astral
soul. The psychic trance is controlled by both the physical will and
the astral will acting in concert.
The religious trance is
controlled by outside sensory input into both the physical and
astral minds. The psychic trance is an active state of consciousness
that leaves you free to ask questions and make comments using your
full creative powers.
The religious trance is a passive state used
to control and brainwash people.
The purpose of a psychic trance is for an individual to take
conscious control of his/her psychic powers and use them to receive
messages by telepathy or perform some other psychic working. What
happens during the religious trance is not quite the same.
people are completely in the religious trance, they are able to
receive telepathic messages from everyone around them and from any
disembodied spirits present; but the process is not nearly as
conscious as what you're doing right now in a psychic trance.
When religious believers say they "feel the presence of God" at
church services, they are referring to telepathic communication
without even realizing it. Since the individual will is passive
during the religious trance, the members of a religious congregation
cannot use their psychic powers deliberately, under conscious
control, as people in a psychic trance do.
They simply identify with
what is sent to them, both intellectually and emotionally. Most of
the telepathic intake received by an individual at a religious
service comes from other members of the congregation; this is
usually a more powerful influence than anything sent by spirits.
The actual religious mind-control process, the technique that
provides telepathic emotional reinforcement to help program people's
minds, is a sort of "psychic chain-reaction" that occurs while a
group of people are in the religious trance together.
words, the telepathic messages sent out by every member of the
congregation influence the emotions and thinking of every other
member, like a box of matches catching fire or an atomic chain
This process creates a "religious group mind": the telepathic
transmissions of the entire congregation mutually reinforce one
another until everyone present is thinking and feeling the same
thing very, very strongly. People in such a state can feel extremely
strong emotions, as strong as those that accompany the most powerful
physical sensations such as sexual orgasm or extreme pain.
is done without much sensory stimulation - usually just preaching,
hymn singing, or
praying - because the reinforcement is coming from
the psychic chain-reaction.
Q. I've heard this described as "religious ecstasy," but thought it
was caused mostly by the sensory stimulation of the ritual itself
combined with people's own desires to be deeply moved emotionally. I
knew that psychic activity often occurred simultaneously, but never
realized it was the key motivating factor for the whole thing.
A. The most important thing about this state of group religious
ecstasy is that it generates large amounts of psychic energy.
of that energy may be directly absorbed by any Theocratic spirits
present, but most of it is diverted back into the physical minds of
the members of the congregation to indoctrinate them with whatever
the Theocrats want them to believe or feel or do.
This is the
essence of religious mind control.
In other words, a Theocratic spirit sends a telepathic message into
the minds of people in such a state of religious ecstasy, and they
generate powerful surges of telepathically transmitted emotion that
program them to believe and act on the messages they receive.
example, the idea "Abortion is murder" might generate powerful
feelings of hate, whereas "All Christians shall be as brethren"
might generate feelings of familial love among all the members of
Within certain limitations, this is an extremely powerful method for
controlling people's motivations and future behavior. One of its
worst features is that the people being controlled enjoy it more
than anything else in life. You might call it the ultimate "high."
And it's more addictive than any chemical drug.
Q. This means that the Jesus Freaks in the Sixties were speaking
quite literally when they talked about "getting high on Jesus." At
first thought, it is rather ironic that the Fundamentalists, who say
they hate recreational drugs so much, are literally "Jesus junkies."
But once the thought sinks in, it's really tragic, like everything
else I've heard so far about Theocracy.
A. Yes. And the Theocrats deliberately make the religious
mind-control process as addictive as possible to enslave believers.
The whole vicious circle of sin, guilt, and forgiveness was
deliberately designed to create a cycle of addiction that is almost
impossible to break.
Q. The religious mind-control process resembles some of the direct
electronic mind control described in anti-utopian fiction. George
Orwell exaggerated when he thought the state described in his novel
1984 would arise out of modern Democracy and Socialism, but he
missed something much more important. His totalitarian state with
its mind-control has always existed. It's as close as your local
A. That's one of the most important things we're trying to tell you.
People have always been "property" and "cattle" just as
speculated, but it's not on the physical level.
What has been
enslaved is the mind during life and the soul after death.
Q. This is what
was really hinting at in his
mythos, isn't it? And it also explains Shaver's Deros and hundreds
of other references in fiction and serious speculation.
A. Very few of the people who wrote these references knew much about
Theocracy as we're describing it here. All that really happened is
that we were able to transmit a few words or some visual images to
Sometimes these were received in conscious
"flashes" of vision or inspiration; but more often they sank
directly into the subconscious, and were later called up and
considered original creations of the imagination.
Q. One example that comes to mind is the material about the
eating souls in
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. He must have
picked up a glimpse of the truth about Theocracy, but he was so
deeply brainwashed that it didn't liberate him. His conscious
intellect just twisted the information around to support his
Christian belief system.
Let's get back to the cycle of sin and forgiveness. I consider this
one of the weakest points of Christian doctrine, because it seems to
grant forgiveness without doing anything concrete to punish "sin."
Even the token penance of saying prayers, etc., that Catholic
priests hand out during confession doesn't seem like a realistic
form of negative reinforcement to extinguish unwanted behavior
A. This is quite true.
The last thing the Theocrats want is for
religious believers to stop sinning. That is why they made sexual
pleasure a sin, and why Christianity and most other organized
religions teach the obvious fallacy that women are inferior to men.
Q. In other words, when the Theocrats made up religious doctrine,
they included deliberate lies in it so that people would never be
able to be completely virtuous.
A. No. It's worse than that.
Fallible human beings can never be
completely virtuous in the sense of being able to obey the absolute
letter of any rigid ethical code. However, falling short of
perfection in obeying most ethical codes provides reinforcement for
modifying behavior in positive ways: the more people are punished
for disobedience or rewarded for obedience, the closer their average
behavior gets to the code.
The "better" they behave, the more
positive reinforcement and less negative reinforcement they get.
Even though they never reach perfection, they tend to feel the code
is constructive because progress is rewarded and retrogression is
Q. This is easy enough to understand, but how does it apply to a
moral code that says sex is sinful?
A. That's the point we're trying to make.
This kind of logic doesn't
apply to such a code. Sexual desire originates on the biochemical
level and cannot be extinguished by manipulating the programming of
the mind. People can be conditioned to hate and fear their sexual
feelings and to avoid sexual behavior, but this doesn't stop the
They don't originate in the mind, so they can't
be gotten rid of no matter how the mind is reprogrammed.
In this context, we are defining "mind" as "The information stored
in the brain, plus the software for retrieving and processing that
information." Do you now understand the full magnitude of the
problem that a completely false item of religious doctrine causes
people? It's an inherently frustrating situation.
The subjugation of
women makes life much less pleasant for both genders. It turns women
into slaves, forever unable to live full lives. And it does just as
much harm to men when it turns them into oppressors and exploiters.
This creates a no-win situation, because Fundamentalists still
receive negative reinforcement even if they obey their moral code
perfectly. For example, trying to live up to Christian ideals of
chastity is always going to create guilt feelings and internal
conflict, because believing that sexual feelings are wrong does not
extinguish them, even though it might repress or sublimate them.
living within a sexist family structure always creates interpersonal
Q. I see now why you say this process is similar to drug addiction.
The Fundamentalist moral code contains elements that can't help
making people feel frustrated or guilty, which creates an artificial
need for "divine forgiveness of sins."
A. There's a significant difference between a humanistic ethical
code and the moral codes of Theocratic religion.
The former are
designed to meet people's needs, the latter to meet the Theocrats'
needs. Even though most humanistic ethical codes are too idealistic
to follow rigidly, "human nature" itself regulates reinforcement in
response to them in ways that prevent excessive guilt and
In other words, committing murder or assault is severely punished,
cursing and screaming at people less so, but the social environment
of most societies does not punish people for merely feeling anger
but not expressing it in word or deed. However, the negative
emotions themselves are a form of negative reinforcement.
that this process is self-limiting: serious offenses receive severe
punishment, whereas minor ones receive light punishment. This is not
true of violations of religious morality based on absolutes.
You and your readers should also be constantly aware that
Theocrats do not confine their activities to religion and occultism,
but corrupt and control human beings through all activities that
produce certain states of altered consciousness.
For example, when
people use the electronic media for passive recreational purposes -
listening to popular music over the radio or on recordings, watching
televised sports events and game shows, and playing the simpler
computer games - they often enter a trance state that renders them
vulnerable to telepathic mind-control by Theocratic spirits.
discuss this electronic mind control in a later chapter; we must
first give more background information about the nature of spiritual
beings and psychic powers in general.
Soul, Mind, and Consciousness
Q. Even though you've explained how the Theocrats indoctrinate
people who attend religious services by conditioning them with a
mixture of sensory and telepathic reinforcement, I still find it
hard to understand this in terms of what I know about psychology.
For example, how can the whole human race be so brainwashed that
they don't even speculate consciously about certain aspects of
spiritual reality? The idea that evil spirits might pose as gods and
exploit people through organized religion is an obvious one, yet
almost no one ever talks or writes about it. The whole subject is
Also, if religious mind control puts people into conflict with their
own human nature, as happens when they are taught that sexual
feelings are morally wrong, why doesn't this negative reinforcement
cancel out the positive reinforcement of religious ecstasy? And even
more important, most Americans right now aren't Fundamentalists. The
majority don't even go to churches regularly at all; and many of
those who do, go to liberal churches that don't practice religious
mind control as you describe it.
Since this is so, why aren't all
the facts about Theocracy and religious mind control common
A. The answer to all these questions is the same: the Theocrats
simply know a lot more about psychology than people do.
electronic computer analogy applies here. People on Earth right now
are like the users of a computer system: they can in-put and
retrieve data, and they can run the existing programs to process the
data in set ways.
Many of them have enough programming skills to
modify some of the programs slightly, but they don't understand the
basic design of the software very well. On the other hand, the
Theocrats not only understand the software far more completely, but
also have much easier access to the special "command mode" used to
modify it. This command mode is the telepathic chain-reaction used
in religious mind control.
Of course trained human psychics also have access to it, and so do
spirits in the Invisible College; but it is still extremely
difficult to free people from Theocratic control. The mind of the
average person on Earth right now is run by software designed by the
Theocrats to keep people from consciously finding out they exist.
And there's no use just telling people the truth: they simply can't
understand or believe it, because the mental programs they use for
understanding and believing things were designed by the Theocrats.
Q. Almost all religious and occult literature, and the majority of
modern speculative writing that comes close to discussing Theocracy,
assume that "gods," "demons," etc., have the power to kill humans
who discover "forbidden knowledge," or at the very least, to
over-ride the conscious will and keep humans from remembering such
things or pursuing such lines of enquiry further. What are the facts
on this? Especially, are the Theocrats aware of telepathic
conversations like this one, and what can they do about it?
A. Obviously, the Theocrats don't have the psychic power to kill
people or analyze their conscious minds, or you wouldn't have
survived to write this.
They operate through the subconscious, and
they keep people from finding out about them by making it difficult
to understand certain kinds of spiritual information or draw
rational conclusions from it.
An explanation of how they do this is quite complex. Like the
answers to your first set of questions, it depends on a more
complete knowledge of the nature of the mind and the soul than you
now have, and this is going to be difficult to explain.
mind, throughout what follows, that much of the terminology from
psychology and computer science is going to be misused. We have to
use the words in your vocabulary that are closest to the meanings we
need to convey, but they aren't always too close.
The first thing we need to clarify is the comparison between the
human brain and a computer, and between the mind and the software
and data in a computer. The only similarity between the human brain
and present electronic computers on Earth is that both store and
process data. The methods for doing so are quite different.
where most of the books about biocomputers and psychocybernetics go
wrong. They take the analogy between the brain and the computer, and
between the mind and computer software, much too literally.
The best example is that the electronic computer deals in absolute
or "hard" values, whereas the brain deals in comparative or "soft"
values. If you create a new file in a computer and enter data into
it, the information stays there exactly as entered, and you can
retrieve it in its complete original form just by entering the
correct access code.
If you want to delete something, you can "kill"
it instantly and completely by using the correct commands.
Everything you know about the human memory and learning process
makes it obvious the human mind doesn't work this way.
Memory storage and retrieval in the human mind is a cumulative
rather than an absolute process. If a person's senses receive a
particular set of data only once, fewer of the individual details
are recorded in memory than if it is received repeatedly. Also,
information may be automatically forgotten if not periodically
retrieved, a phenomenon that behaviorists call extinction. These two
processes are almost impossible to analyze using a computer analogy.
The electronic computer is an artificial construction, designed to
do exactly what the human operator tells it to do. It's also
basically binary: a circuit is either open or closed, giving a
series of "yes" and "no" answers. Computer software is designed
exactly the same way, to match the hardware.
data-processing functions of the computer can be very complex, but
this complexity is always built up out of these simple binary
Neither the brain nor the mind works this way.
Q. Doesn't the biological principle of "irritability" put a binary
base under the behavior of living organisms? For example, some
microorganisms show positive or negative
phototropism: they approach
a source of light, or they move away from it.
A. This analogy doesn't hold up very well, because even
microorganisms often show much more complex behavior than this.
Biological behavior is based not on simple "yes" and "no," but on
increasing or decreasing orders of probability that an organism will
respond in a given way to a given stimulus.
The probability that an
organism will show a given response is determined by the quantity
and quality of reinforcement it receives for performing that
response. The behavior of the computer is based on "either A or B."
The behavior of the biological organism is based on "degrees of A or
B" with the quantitative values of the probabilities being
determined by environmental reinforcement of many different kinds.
The computer model of the mind is still useful, though, because it's
the only way even to begin to discuss the subject in the English
language right now, poorly as the available terminology fits the
For example, it is much easier to understand the concept
of the "subconscious" if you think of the mind as the total data and
programs stored in an electronic computer, with many different kinds
of files, each kind having different access codes.
In other words, what people call "normal consciousness" is like a
computer menu, which gives access to certain files and allows them
to perform certain operations. Various "altered" states of
consciousness give access to entirely different menus.
Theocrats have some degree of direct access to the "control mode"
for modifying these programs in both the physical and astral mind,
they have redesigned many of them to serve their selfish purposes
for exploiting human beings both on Earth and after death.
Q. Do they get this direct access during the religious mind-control
process, and if so, why aren't people who don't attend religious
services immune to it?
A. Religious mind control is practiced in many different places
besides religious services. The Theocrats often practice it on the
attending sporting events
in gambling casinos
during musical concerts of many types
in a number of
Whenever many people enter an intense emotional state
at the same time and have their collective attention focused on a
common objective, Theocratic spirits can use subconscious telepathic
manipulation to put them into a religious trance and reprogram their
minds with religious mind control.
The Invisible College used the
rock concerts, peace demonstrations,
"love-ins," and similar events of the Sixties for exactly the same
purposes. Before that we used meetings of fraternal organizations, a
variety of progressive political meetings, and even the circuses and
carnivals that used to visit every American village and town, as the
Theocrats used, and still use, touring revival meetings.
Invisible College will continue to practice religious mind control
to reprogram people as long as the Theocrats do.
The important thing is to get as many of the facts as possible out
into the open and let people decide for themselves. And it's finally
beginning to happen. References to the truth about Theocracy are
beginning to appear in the writings of hundreds of different
But the information is still mostly just isolated
fragments, and it's also obvious that most of the people who write
them down don't really know what they are, or even that they're very
Even though most of the individual facts that make up the model of
spiritual reality being presented in this book are already available
to the public, very few people are capable of assembling them into a
coherent theory, as you are doing here.
This is because the mental
programs they use to draw conclusions from information on spiritual
subjects were deliberately designed by the Theocrats to be illogical
Q. I've wondered about this for a long time, because empirical
thinking appears to be the natural way for the mind to operate if
you assume that the functioning of the thought-process is determined
by positive and negative reinforcement.
As a general rule, assuming that the truth is true will
bring positive reinforcement; assuming that it is false, or that
something other than the truth is true, will bring negative
reinforcement. There are exceptions to this rule, but it does
operate with reasonable consistency, enough to program people with
roughly empirical methods of thinking.
This is what most people mean
by "common sense": drawing conclusions from the available observed
information, and being willing to modify those conclusions if they
are contradicted by further information when put into practice.
Of course, this can get extremely complicated, especially when one
is dealing with other people. Since the individual usually has
rather incomplete information on a given subject, everyone makes a
lot of mistakes.
Also, people all tend to be conservative in making
decisions: it's easier to keep on doing something the way you've
done it before than it is to change just because the circumstances
indicate it might be a good idea.
Both of these exceptions are important, but you should realize they
are also self-limiting. The more information you receive that
contradicts your present conclusion, the more likely you are to
change it. Also, your basic conservatism or inertia about changing
opinions tends to give way when circumstances put enough pressure on
When you start receiving significant negative reinforcement for
behaving in a given way, it gradually becomes obvious that you
should find an alternative.
This is the way the mind operates in decision-making most of the
time, especially in dealing with the physical world. But this kind
of natural empirical reasoning is used much less often than one
might expect in dealing with other people, and hardly at all in
dealing with psychic and spiritual matters. The Theocrats are
responsible for this.
The key to Theocratic power is the nature of what the behaviorists
As materialists, they think of it as something
concrete; but it also has a subjective component, and the Theocrats
are able to make use of this fact to manipulate the kind of
reinforcement that people receive in response to their behavior.
Q. By "a subjective component in reinforcement," do you mean that a
concept like "pain" or "pleasure" is subjective in the sense of
being subject to interpretation by the person receiving the sensory
A. No. That part of it is objective: the neural impulses we call
pain are not the same as the ones we call pleasure; they have
different electrical characteristics and travel over different
circuits within the nervous system.
Q. Yes, that's verified by what I know of scientific conclusions on
the subject. Where, then, is the "subjective component"?
A. The best name for it in English is "the emotional reaction to
As sensory stimuli are received by the mind of a
person in a normal state of consciousness, they cause the retrieval
of ideas and emotions from memory. This component is subjective
because it comes out of memory storage rather than from the outside
environment, and in many cases it has more effect on decision-making
than the sensory input alone.
Let's try a specific example. Suppose a racially prejudiced white
man takes a job where many of his co-workers are blacks. Initially,
he tends to interpret everything they say and do in ways that
reinforce his existing prejudice: if they are confident and
assertive, they are acting "above their station in life."
friendly, they're being presumptuous and impertinent. If they sense
his prejudice and keep their distance from him or act hostile, this
is proof that people of different races are not meant to work
together. And so on.
His experience should be teaching him that, on
the average, black people are no different from white people; but
his own subjective reactions to sensory intake tend to prevent him
Q. The behaviorist literature describes these kinds of reactions, of
course, because they are very common, but the psychologists don't
even speculate that a deliberate conspiracy is responsible for those
elements of human behavior that are irrational or self-destructive.
Instead, they take a Darwinian approach.
For example, in the case
cited above, they'd say that the prejudiced man learned his
prejudice in an environment where he had little personal contact
with black people: he received positive reinforcement from the
prejudiced whites around him for showing negative emotional
reactions when blacks were mentioned, so he became prejudiced. When
he enters an environment where he comes in contact with black
people, these prejudices continue to function until they are
This is a process very similar to random mutation and
A. This process does account for a lot of human behavior.
mental programming from Theocratic spirits has to be added into this
equation. The Theocrats don't want people to learn from experience
or adjust to new situations in their environment, so they encourage
emotionalism over rationality. When people make decisions
rationally, they are harder for the Theocrats to control.
Religious mind control is a delicate process, because the religious
trance is a rather shallow one. If people in a religious trance
perform rituals that are unfamiliar, or hear preaching that
seriously contradicts their existing beliefs, they return to a
normal state of consciousness. Effective religious mind control can
be practiced during rituals only when those rituals remain
This is also one of the principal reasons why
Theocratic religion is socially and politically conservative or
Q. I still don't see how the Theocrats can program the minds of the
entire human race so thoroughly that the truth about Theocracy has
never become common knowledge.
A. A few people throughout history have, in fact, learned various
elements of the truth about Theocracy and written them down in
religious and occult literature.
However, these elements were always
fragmentary; and more important, neither the people who found them
nor the rest of the human race were capable of fully understanding
Especially, no one was able to design experiments to discover
further elements of this knowledge and work towards a unified theory
to explain the whole thing.
Q. Why should the entire human race find it so hard to make the same
breakthrough that I'm making, which enables me to discover and
accept this kind of information? I understand, at least partially,
how religious mind control works on believers, but why should the
minds of everyone else be similarly affected?
A. This comes back to the basic behaviorist theory that human
personality is conditioned into people by their physical environment - this includes the mental programs that they use to evaluate data
and decide what is true and what is false.
Even if you leave direct
telepathic programming during religious mind control out of the
picture, people still receive their programming from both their
physical and social environments.
Programming from the physical
environment usually favors empirical thinking, but that from the
social environment favors acceptance of doctrine on faith.
A large part of the customs and beliefs and instinctive emotional
reactions that make up this social environment were created by
The further back you go into human history, the
greater the percentage of people who were devout believers in
Theocratic religion and were subjected to religious mind control to
a significant degree throughout their lives.
Q. This definitely appears to be true when we look at Western
history over the last thousand years, but I can see gaps further
back. For example, it doesn't seem as if either the Romans or the
Greeks were very devout during important periods of their
A. On the contrary - the vast majority of the population in both
civilizations were devout believers in Pagan religions that
practiced effective religious mind control.
However, there were
periodic weakenings of religious belief among certain segments of
the population, which allowed important occult, philosophical,
political, and scientific works to be written, works based on some
degree of empirical thinking. Remember, the Greek and Roman
philosophers were just a tiny elitist group of intellectuals.
majority viewpoint then was not that of Socrates, but that of the
people who condemned him to death.
The hold of Theocratic religion on most of Earth's living population
did not begin to weaken until the Modern Era, from about the 1300's
down to the present. And even today, the greater part of the
population is still subject to religious mind control.
civilization does program people with personality structures that
resist religious mind control, but the Theocrats have been able to
counter our efforts along these lines by resorting to electronic
Q. My research into
secret societies and the forces manipulating
human civilization has given me the impression that the Invisible
College also makes use of both religious and electronic mind
A. This is true. We discuss electronic mind control in more detail
in the next chapter.
Electronic Mind Control
A. Electronic mind control works on two different levels, just as
religious mind control does.
We described in some detail in
Twelve how religious services put people into an altered state of
consciousness similar to a light hypnotic trance, and how the
thinking and behavior of people in such a religious trance can be
influenced by what they experience through the physical senses
during the service. In other words, they often learn to believe and
act on the preacher's words as people, learn to react to
post-hypnotic suggestions during regular hypnosis.
Electronic mind control does exactly the same thing, and
often to an
even greater degree. It is also even more addictive than religious
mind control. Like religious mind control, electronic mind control
works on two different levels,
one physical and
next discuss the physical level, which can be directly observed with
the physical senses and analyzed with the conscious intellect.
are many, many books in existence that describe this process,
including detailed instructions for spotting subliminals by
analyzing movies or TV shows in extreme slow-motion, along with
explanations by psychologists for determining what specific effects
the subliminal messages will have on the viewer.
has also been published describing how sensory mind-control is
performed through popular music, radio talk shows, and other
auditory media, though this subject has not been treated as
extensively as mind-control through
the visual media.
Electronic or media mind-control has a psychic component just as
religious mind control does, but this employs completely different
mechanisms, and your readers should be careful not to get confused
reading the two sets of technical details in one book. They don't
contradict one another, but they might seem to if not completely
Everything we said in Chapter Twelve about religious mind-control is
based on the postulate that psychic phenomena are
broadcast-propagation phenomena like light or radio waves, and that
they obey the inverse-square law.
In other words, the strength of a
telepathic signal varies inversely with the square of the distance
between transmitter and receiver, so psychic workings function most
efficiently when the people or spirits involved are spatially close
to one another. This is one reason why we continually stress the
fact that the astral plane is a condition, not a place, and that
spirits are present in the same space that living people occupy.
However, there is a second, non-broadcast system for transmitting
and receiving psychic energies between human souls, which we haven't
Do you remember the old Greek Myth about the "Threads
of Destiny" woven by the goddesses called
the Fates? These threads
actually exist, but they aren't woven by superhuman beings.
"transmission lines" of astral matter that connect one soul to
another, and they allow telepathic communications over greater
distances and with greater power than can be accomplished by
ordinary "broadcast" telepathy.
These threads are created spontaneously when astral souls come into
contact with one another while generating large amounts of psychic
energy. Whenever the astral mind is in the correct state of
consciousness, generating these threads is just as natural and
automatic as the process that spiders use to leave a silk strand
behind them when they travel.
When this additional theoretical
information is added to the material about religious mind control in
Chapter Twelve, it explains how television evangelists can exert a
direct psychic influence over their congregations from a distance.
The process has two possible starting points. First, people who
regularly attend Christian church services dominated by the
Theocrats are urged to watch certain television evangelists and to
listen to designated religious radio broadcasts.
Over the years, an
elaborate network of astral transmission lines has been built up to
link the religious broadcasters to the clergy of Theocratic
congregations all over the country, and through them, to the masses
of ordinary members.
These psychic threads are put in place when radio and TV preachers
are invited to hold services at church conventions, or when a group
of churches hosts a large local revival meeting with a media
evangelist, or someone working for one, as a guest. This method is
used primarily to link the churches to the hundreds of second-rank
broadcast evangelists with regional or local media followings.
superstar evangelists who already have national followings reverse
this procedure: they invite the ministers and elders of selected
churches all over the country to visit their studios and become part
of the in-house congregation during their broadcasts. In either
case, psychic linkages are established between the media evangelist
and the local churches.
Some of the more ambitious TV evangelists have also directly linked
large numbers of ordinary members of Theocratic congregations - and
hundreds of thousands of new converts as well - into their
electronic mind control networks by periodically holding huge, live
revival meetings. (They are often held in major sports stadiums,
which, as we will see in a moment, is especially appropriate.)
is also why several of the major evangelists have started colleges,
and why one TV ministry even built its own imitation of Disneyland.
Q. Sometimes the little details are more biting than the big,
mind-boggling horror stories. Think of it: a theme park where
families can get enslaved to both electronic and religious
mind-control while they take their vacation!
A. However, the media networks used by the TV evangelists are not
the most important electronic mind control networks in the United
States right now. The Theocrats have another mind control network
that enslaves large numbers of people who have little or no interest
in organized religion.
It's centered on the major spectator sports,
organized gambling, and the communications media that service both;
and it controls more people than all the Fundamentalist churches and
TV evangelists combined.
It doesn't program people's surface
thinking and behavior as thoroughly as Theocratic religion does,
because there's less verbal-intellectual content, but it's just as
effective at programming their subconscious minds into forming
instinctive opinions favorable to the goals of the Theocrats.
People don't have to be watching a sermon or listening to a hymn to
receive subconscious telepathic messages from the very same spirits
who control fundamentalist religion; they only have to be in the
correct state of altered consciousness (which TV and radio produces
automatically in all members of the audience who haven't learned
specific techniques for preventing it), and they have to have the
transmission lines of astral matter implanted in the right part of
their soul, linking them into the network.
Q. In other words, the football widow's husband absorbs just as much
Theocratic media mind-control from his weekend glued to the tube as
does the Fundamentalist who watches the same amount of religious
Live sports events and casino gambling serve the same
function in this network as church services and revival meetings do
in the electronic religious mind control networks. Compulsive
gambling, especially on sports events through an enormous (and
mostly illegal) electronic bookmaking network, plays the same part
as does the cycle of sin/guilt/forgiveness in Theocratic religion.
And the Theocrats are now actively expanding this form of
mind-control. Notice that many states have recently legalized
various forms of gambling that plug people into the networks just
It's no accident that gambling
expands on both the in-person and media levels as the Fundamentalist
churches and TV evangelism decline.
The Theocrats are shifting their
attention to activities more natural to the average opinions and
lifestyles of present day Americans.
Q. Before I made the breakthrough, I always wondered why the Sixties
Movement was instinctively hostile both to organized spectator
sports and to organized gambling, while enthusiastically embracing a
wide range of other "vices," major and minor. On the purely physical
level, being a fan of organized sports is usually only a waste of
time, and gambling is only a waste of money, whereas irresponsible
experimentation with drugs, sex, and lifestyles can do much more
serious harm to people.
I knew that both sports fanaticism and gambling were addictive and
could sometimes seriously harm a susceptible person, but I also knew
that virtually anything could cause a harmful addiction if a person
has the right pattern of character defects. However, I also felt
very strong background "vibes" in the counterculture that said,
"Stay away from spectator sports and big-time gambling."
Now I know
A. Casino gambling in Nevada is one of the most important
battlefields in the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible
Once Theocratic spirits get their control threads on people
gambling in the casinos, they continue to send telepathic messages
into the minds of these people whenever they watch certain
television programs, especially sports events and game shows.
However, the Invisible College also uses the Nevada casinos, though
we're not going to give a detailed description of what we do there.
Q. As a magician working for the Invisible College, I go to the
Nevada gambling areas periodically to do various magical workings to
support our side in this conflict. Now, I already know I shouldn't
describe these psychic battles in detail for security reasons, but
it's OK to point out that they occur, isn't it?
It's OK for your readers to know that the electronic mental
reprogramming networks of the Theocrats and the Invisible College
have their American headquarters in Las Vegas: the Theocrats are
the Strip and we are mostly
And you should also
add some advice for people who enjoy recreational gambling.
Q. OK. If people want to gamble, we strongly recommend that they do
it in private games with friends, or at local bingo or card clubs if
such are legal where they live. These forms of gambling can still
plug people into an electronic mind-control network, but they're
less dangerous than the Nevada casinos. Going to Reno or Vegas or
Atlantic City to gamble for fun is like going "out on the town" in
Saigon during the late Sixties. There's a war on, and the innocent
can get caught up in it as easily as the combatants.
People who disregard this advice and go to Nevada to gamble anyway
can minimize the danger if they are careful to remain in a normal
state of consciousness. This means: don't sample the free drinks,
and above all, don't gamble for more than an hour at a time. If you
get at all intoxicated or spaced out from fatigue, the Theocrats can
put you into the same type of trance that people go into at
religious services, and start brainwashing you.
They can also make
you lose more money than you intended to risk: this now happens to
the majority of people who go the Nevada casinos just to have a good
time. Electronic inter-state banking, allowing cash advances on
almost any credit card right in the casinos, is partly responsible
for this; but the major reason is simply that the War in Heaven is
hotter than ever before, and both sides are generating a lot more

control, and the Invisible College does even more of it than the
Theocrats, working mostly through popular music and pop culture in
Once people have been to a certain number of live rock
concerts, whether huge ones in sports stadiums or small ones in
clubs, then they are permanently linked into a media mind control
network run by the Invisible College, and they receive subconscious
telepathic messages every time they listen to the right kind of
music on the radio or on their own stereo systems.
The song lyrics
perform the same function in this process as sermons do in religious
media mind control.
Q. There are some truly amazing messages being sent through this
medium these days - a lot of it sounds as if it's straight out of
the pages of this book - and yet few people seem to be consciously
aware of them. Some of the people who write for underground rock
fanzines are beginning to realize that the songs contain important
messages about life after death, magic, psychic development, etc.,
but the music critics whose work gets national circulation have
given this little attention so far.
A. This is mostly because it's so hard to hear the channeled
messages in song lyrics:
most of them are subliminal unless you go
to special efforts to pick them out word by word, and when you do
extract them, they're written in an elaborate jargon and code.
People who are part of the mind control network learn a deep
instinctive understanding of this code, but few can paraphrase the
content of the messages into plain English.
There's a further complication in all this. We pointed out earlier
that we have taken control of certain Christian churches and media
evangelists and now use them to fight Theocracy. And in another
chapter, we described how the Theocrats were also active in the
middle of the Sixties Movement, trying to subvert individuals and
groups over to their side.
Exactly the same thing is going on today.
We use sports and gambling for reprogramming when we can seize
control of part of the network, and the Theocrats have a large and
powerful following in the Popular music world.
A word of advice to conscious psychics and magicians: even if you
remain hostile to all forms of involuntary mental reprogramming, you
can still help people learn to defend themselves consciously against
Every school of occultism has its spells for taking
of people, and most of them involve detaching the victim from the
astral communications lines that are causing the problem. These
techniques should be taught to anyone with sufficient control of the
psychic powers to use them, and the "clearing" rituals themselves
should be widely and publicly performed.
Of course, this will also knock out
beneficial mind-control linkages
put there by the Invisible College and all the "good" occult groups,
so we personally recommend that people who perform such spells
should also be prepared to create new beneficial linkages of their
own. However, if you are still too hostile to all forms of mind
control to do this, it's still more important to break the
Theocratic linkages. That's a major difference between us and the
We would rather see people completely free of
control-linkages than enslaved to the Theocrats.
Q. I believed for years before I made my breakthrough that a
significant percentage of the "dangerous visions" in science fiction
and other speculative literature are spirit-dictated massages, and I
now know the hows and whys of it.
A. Yes, this is still another form of media mind control, operating
through the printed word rather than the electronic media. Remember,
people fall into a trance state reading light literature for
recreation, just as they do watching TV or listening to music.
Even more significant, literally millions of Americans are now
practicing relatively advanced forms of sex and drug magic without
considering themselves formal occultists or bothering to learn the
intellectual knowledge traditionally associated with such practices
in both the East and the West:
Instead, people just learn specific techniques by having sex or
turning on with someone who already knows them, and then proceed
from there by trial and error.
Many such experimenters have been hurt trying this, but a large
number of them have gotten to the point where they can channel down
instructions directly from spirits; and at that point they have
almost the same access to psychic development tools as the advanced,
formal occultists have.
With one big exception: because they never
bothered to learn the associated spiritual, cosmological,
philosophical, ethical systems, they are almost totally ignorant of
how to identify the political faction a particular spirit belongs to
on the astral plane, so their channeled information is usually
mishmash from many different sources.
We have now completed our explanation of what the Theocrats are and
how they operate. Next, we will discuss the history of Theocracy on
Earth, from its beginnings to the present.
The History of Theocracy
A. Theocracy on Earth has passed through four different stages of
development so far, and is now entering a fifth. We will describe
the first four stages here, leaving the fifth for a later chapter.
The first stage was tribal shamanism of the type that produced the
Alta Mira cave paintings thousands of years ago. First-stage
Theocratic religions have never entirely died out, and still exist
today among certain tribes of North American Indians, Africans, and
Most of them, though, have been evolving into
more advanced types or have been replaced with outside religions
since these peoples came into ever-increasing contact with
foreigners over the past few hundred years.
Q. In the course of my training as a magician, I've worked with
people who practice a number of these "primitive" systems and found
that many of them are as skilled at telepathy, psychic mind control,
psychic healing, etc., as highly trained Eastern and Western
occultists. I've also read extensively about dozens of other
shamanic spiritual systems, and they all seem to be designed to
teach advanced operational magic techniques as a routine part of
What's primitive about that? When it comes to
magic, it is Christianity and the other modern mainstream religions
that are primitive, not the shamanic systems.
A. First-stage Theocratic religions are not primitive from a human
perspective, but they are from a Theocratic perspective.
point out, most of them teach extremely sophisticated and effective
psychic-development systems. This is what makes them primitive - in
the sense of "crude and inefficient" - from the viewpoint of the
Theocrats, who judge a religious system by how well it allows them
to control every phase of human thinking and behavior, especially
the conscious use of the psychic powers.
In any society with a first-stage Theocratic religion, the majority
of people who learned significant psychic skills in a previous
lifetime have an opportunity to develop them consciously during the
present lifetime, because the shamans who serve as clergy are
conscious psychics themselves.
Religious services in a first-stage
Theocratic religion are usually conducted with the entire
congregation in a psychic trance. This is in direct contrast to the
more advanced forms of Theocratic religion, which discourage
conscious, independent psychic activity, and employ the religious
trance rather than the psychic trance.
A religious elite composed of
shamans is much harder for the
Theocrats to control than one composed of clerical or secular rulers
who submit to religious mind control. A shaman is much more likely
to put his or her own psychic development above the telepathic
commands of the Theocrats.
Also, shamanic mythologies often contain
major elements of the truth about Theocracy, and so teach people an
instinctive aversion for mind control and enslavement by spirits.
Q. I know from my reading on the subject that most such religions
teach that some disembodied spirits eat others.
A. They do, but the information is usually encoded in such a way
that the believers, including the shamans who channel it, do not
realize that the "Eaters of Souls" are their own gods.
Eaters of Souls are said to be the gods of enemy tribes, or
that are very different from human beings such as
the Windigos of
various Amerindian tribes, or the ghosts of human criminals and
outcasts. The shamanic religions usually teach that a tribe's gods
protect their own people from the Eaters of Souls.
Also, the powers of the Eaters of Souls are exaggerated. Most of the
legends say they can steal the souls of living people, except those
of the most powerful shamans. And this idea hasn't died out at all.
It's present in the writings of
Lovecraft, in the modern
Fundamentalist propaganda about demonic possession, and in the
extant first-stage religions themselves.
For example, the
still have powerful instinctive fears of witches
and shape-changers, and much of their traditional religious practice
is intended as a defense against these evil beings.
Q. When you come right down to it, I myself feel deep instinctive
fears that maybe the Theocrats can in fact forcibly take over the
minds of living people or somehow damage their souls.
A. Of course you have these fears.
learned them from a psychic
and social environment still dominated to some extent by the
Theocrats and their propaganda. However, the very fact that you are
able to write about this is evidence that the Theocrats are liars.
Their control over people is indirect, exercised mostly by
programming the subconscious mind.
They can't overwhelm the
conscious will of any normal person, only the wills of people with
seriously damaged physical or astral minds; and they can't directly
harm or enslave the soul when it is incarnated.
However, at a certain point in the future, the Theocrats will
probably become more powerful; but this has nothing to do with the
history of Theocracy so far. We'll deal with this subject in Part
Three. For the time being, we will just say that it is nothing to be
unduly alarmed about, because we're prepared to deal with it.
Q. OK, let's leave it alone for now and go back to the description
of first-stage Theocratic religion.
A. First-stage Theocratic religion is far less efficient than the
more advanced stages of Theocratic religion in providing nourishment
for the Theocrats, because it doesn't provide much opportunity for
them to enslave and devour the souls of believers after death.
souls of shamans often don't allow the Theocrats to control them on
the astral plane: either they reincarnate, or they set themselves up
as independent Theocrats in competition with the existing ones
hanging around that particular tribe.
The whole religious system encourages people to practice conscious
psychic development techniques and to become shamans themselves if
they have the necessary talent.
Since the shamans enjoy political
power and social prestige, there is strong motivation for psychic
development, even though the training methods such primitive
societies employ are usually extremely laborious, painful, and
Q. I can see proof of Theocratic mind control and group minds by
observing what happens when Amerindians move from isolated
reservations to "red ghettos" in the big cities. They suffer more
from culture shock than do rural black people when moving to the
city, because they are entering a totally alien environment on the
psychic level as well as on the physical level.
The blacks are
already familiar with Christian group minds, but Amerindians who
have been raised as believers in a first-stage religion are not.
That is why many "City Indians" are skid-row alcoholics, or spend
much of their lives in prisons or mental hospitals. It also explains
why a large number of City Indians who do adjust to the urban
environment become Christian Fundamentalists: they don't have the
experience to resist Theocratic propaganda and religious mind
This leads me ask: do the Theocrats who pose as the gods of
a tribe with a first-stage religion find it easy to enslave tribal
members who haven't have highly developed shamanic powers?
A. Not often, because such people's fears of the Eaters of Souls
keep them from approaching their gods after death.
They expect to
become fearful wanderers after death, and that's exactly what
happens. Sometimes the Theocrats manage to catch them and persuade
them to put themselves under direct telepathic hypnosis, but that's
the exception rather than the rule.
The Theocrats of a primitive
shamanic religion are usually quite short-lived. Often, deceased
shamans try being Theocrats for a while; then they have to
reincarnate to keep from literally starving to death.
Q. OK. What, then, the
Second Stage of Theocratic religion, and what
cultures have practiced it?
A. The Second Stage of Theocratic religion involves
sacrifice and usually cannibalism on a large scale as well. The
Aztecs practiced it until about five hundred years ago, and some of
the ancient Middle Eastern people did also, starting about five
thousand years ago.
Q. I'm familiar with the practice of large-scale human sacrifice by
the Aztecs, the Assyrians, some of the Babylonian and Punic tribes,
and others; but don't human sacrifice and cannibalism go back much
earlier as common religious and social practices?
A. They do.
Such practices were part of many primitive shamanic
religions. The difference is in the scale of the sacrifices and
cannibalism. The second-stage Theocratic religions became possible
only when human societies started to become densely populated and
highly organized. Such societies built cities and had reasonably
sophisticated farming techniques.
They also had large, powerful
governments and highly organized armies that fought major wars.
Q. For some reason, less is known about these societies and their
religions than about either primitive shamanism or more advanced
societies that existed simultaneously. I take it that the ancient
Egyptians and Hebrews were not societies with second-stage
A. No, both were in the
Third Stage when they first appeared in
written historical records, and archaeological evidence shows that
they probably went directly from the first stage to the third, as
did the Greeks and the rest of the Western Aryan peoples.
Stage of Theocratic religion was a failed experiment from the
Theocratic point of view. And from the human point of view, such
societies were so repugnant that few people want to learn much about
them. This is why historians have written so little about them.
For example, the historians of ancient Rome reported that their
leaders said, "Carthage must be utterly destroyed," and that the
city was eventually torn down stone by stone, the population
slaughtered, and the surrounding agricultural area sown with salt.
But they didn't explain in much detail what it was the Carthaginians
did that justified this genocide, except that they practiced human
Now, the Romans also practiced human sacrifice through
most of their history: gladiatorial fights to the death and throwing
people to the lions are definitely in that category, but the Roman
religion was still third-stage, not second-stage.
were only a small, atavistic detail in Roman paganism, not the main
focal point of the whole religious system that they were to the
Q. As I understand a second-stage Theocratic religion, it's usually
a literal theocracy, with the despotic rulers of the earthly society
claiming to be god-like beings superior to the rest of the
population. Is this significant?
A. No. Third-stage Theocratic religions may also be ruled by
The ancient Egyptians are the best-known example. And
the rulers of many societies with fourth-stage religions have also
claimed divine descent: the feudal emperors of both China and Japan
are examples. Nor do the rulers of a second-stage Theocratic society
always pose as divine beings.
They may claim only to be a mortal
priesthood acting out the will of disembodied gods; or such a
society may have separate clergy and secular rulers. This is not a
factor in determining whether or not a society has a second-stage
Among the determining factors are a large, densely populated,
totalitarian society and the practice of human sacrifice on a large
scale. The most important factor is deism as we defined it
previously: belief in gods that are omnipotent or at least
This separates the three higher levels of
Theocratic religion from primitive shamanism, which considers the
gods rather similar to earthly shamans, except that they are
Often they are simply called "The Spirits of
Our Ancestors" or "The Shamans in the Spirit World."
Q. OK then, under a second-stage religion, people believe in
superhuman gods who must be placated with mass human sacrifices that
also often involve cannibalism. Is the cannibalism a significant
A. No. It was practiced only by those second-stage Theocratic
societies that were short of red meat in their diet: the Aztecs and
the ancient Polynesians, for example, who didn't have many
domesticated food animals.
The reason that second-stage Theocratic
religion practiced mass human sacrifice was to supply the Theocrats
with a constant food supply.
When the victims were killed as part of
a large public religious ceremony, the telepathic chain-reaction
generated by a congregation in the religious trance was sufficient
to put the victims' astral souls into a hypnotic trance before
When they were suddenly and violently killed, the Theocrats
were usually able to get control of the souls before they had a
chance to flee.
This is one of the few examples in the history of
Theocracy where the Theocrats were able to seize souls by force, and
they could do it only with the help of large numbers of living
Q. This makes sense. Does it also mean that human sacrifices
performed by some of the more odious cults today don't have the
support of the Theocrats?
A. Well, the Theocrats, all of them, like to see cultists do
terrible things like this because it gives occultists and everyone
else outside Theocratic religion a bad name, but they don't usually
get control of the soul of the sacrificial victim.
aren't enough people at such ceremonies to generate sufficient
The main reason that second-stage Theocratic religion has been quite
rare in history is simply that it's so cruel and violent. Societies
like that had to fight endless wars against their neighbors, or else
enslave and sacrifice a significant portion of their own population.
Either way, they tended to become unstable because of the mass
violence, or to be conquered by their enemies.
However, the real
reason such religions were short-lived is that they couldn't compete
with third- or fourth-stage Theocratic religions when they came in
contact with them.
Q. OK. It's time to go on to discussing the
A. The Third Stage of Theocratic religion involves mass animal
Although they prefer human souls, Theocratic spirits can
nourish themselves off the astral souls of lower animals to some
extent. And these souls are easier to paralyze and control with
religious rituals than human souls are. However, the astral tissues
of animal souls aren't very compatible with the astral souls of the
Theocrats, so they are not a good food source.
The main reason the
Third Stage is considered higher than the second is simply that
societies with such a religion can remain stable for long periods of
Q. If the nutrition from animal souls isn't really adequate, do
third-stage Theocrats tend to be short-lived?
A. Yes, except that they also receive some nourishment from the
psychic energy generated by their worshippers, which is better for
them than the animal souls alone.
Even more important, most of the
major third-stage religions have had some fourth-stage components as
well. This was especially true of the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews,
Hindus, and Western Aryan Pagans.
Judaism and Vedanta eventually
evolved into fully developed fourth-stage religions. The others
survived for a long time with a mixture between the two.
One of the chief characteristics of all third-stage Theocratic
religions is their lack of concern for life after death. Greek and
Roman mythology, for example, gives an extremely accurate
description of what the afterlife was actually like for believers in
Most people simply wandered aimlessly in Hades -
astral plane - for a few years and then sank into
The concept of reincarnation was known, but only a
few elite groups comparable to modern occultists put much stress on
it: the Greek mystery cults, and a number of similar Roman sects,
Religious practice in third-stage religions was concerned almost
entirely with gaining the favor of the gods during earthly life, not
with life after death.
The Theocrats running such religions didn't
know how to enslave souls on the astral plane, so they ignored them.
Instead, they programmed living people to send them the souls of
sacrificed animals, and to broadcast psychic energy during orgiastic
Q. What about the Fourth stage of Theocratic religion?
A. The Fourth Stage of Theocratic religion is the one represented by
all the major modern religions.
Its most important characteristic is
that the Theocrats use religious mind control to delude souls into
deliberately putting themselves under Theocratic control after
death, thinking they are entering "eternal bliss in Heaven" or
"union with the Godhead."
The nature of fourth-stage Theocratic religions has already been
adequately discussed in previous chapters, so we will now leave the
history of Theocracy and discuss the other side for a while: the
The Invisible College
Q. You've already mentioned the Invisible College many times in this
book, implying the general meaning of "those spirits on Earth's
astral plane who are active, conscious enemies of Theocracy." At
this point, I'd like to discuss this organization in greater detail.
What kinds of spirits belong to it, and exactly what does it do to
fight against the Theocrats?
A. The Invisible College isn't an organization by the usual
definition of that term, because it doesn't have a political
structure that all members recognize.
The name is just a collective
term in common use on the astral plane to describe all disembodied
spirits who are not members of Theocratic bands and are not merely
lost souls wandering around helpless because they can't function
effectively in the spirit world.
A synonym in wide use is "free
spirits," which contains a play on words because "free" is used in
two senses at once.
It means "free of Theocratic control"
simultaneously with "free to move around the astral plane at will
and communicate telepathically with other spirits."
There are three main groups of spirits in the Invisible College:
The first major group of spirits in the Invisible College is the
Most of these spirits were highly advanced in
spiritual knowledge and the use of their psychic powers during life,
but they were also devout believers in some sect of the Eastern
religious system that includes Vedanta and
They were wise
enough to refuse to join the Theocratic bands associated with their
particular sect after death, because they could psychically perceive
the enslavement and exploitation going on in the various Heavens.
(Few of the Western occultists who have called themselves
"Illuminati" or some other synonym of "enlightened ones" join this
group after physical death; most become magicians or Theocrats.)
The enlightened ones could be very useful to our cause, but few of
them are willing to stay on the astral plane and help actively fight
They believe that the Theocratic perversions of Heaven
they observe there are illusions, and that perceiving such illusions
proves that they are not yet advanced enough to liberate themselves
from the cycle of rebirth. So they go back and live another earthly
life, always hoping that the next time they die they will be worthy
to enter the true Heaven.
They consider the War in Heaven an
illusion and run away from it, back into earthly existence, which
they also consider illusory.
Q. The idea that much of the universe is "maya" (illusion) is
extremely common in Eastern religion and in Western occultism. Where
did it come from?
A. It's just theocratic propaganda, and the refusal of the
enlightened ones to help in the war against Theocracy is a perfect
example of how effective it is.
Physical life on Earth is no
illusion, nor is existence as a disembodied spirit on the astral
plane. What's illusory is the claim of the Theocrats to be the
of various religions, and the lie that their Heavens offer the human
soul eternal life.
Q. Do any of the saints in the Judeo-Christian religions become
enlightened ones after death?
A. This is extremely rare. Most of them become Theocrats if they are
devout members of Theocratic churches during life. However, some
people who claimed to work miracles through faith in religious
doctrine have become magician spirits after death.
They were really
occultists whose faith was merely a sham to allow them to work
within the religious establishment.
Q. I've always had an instinctive feeling that Vedanta and Buddhism
are less exploitative of believers than Judeo-Christianity, even
though I knew that the Eastern religions aren't as different from
the Western ones as many Americans believe because they can't tell
Eastern occultism from the mainstream of Eastern religion. The
information you've just been giving about the enlightened ones
probably explains why I felt this way.
Even believers in the Western
religious systems whose psychic powers are highly developed are
still quite vulnerable to being enslaved by the Theocrats after
death, whereas similar people in the East often remain free of
Theocratic control and go on incarnating. I assume this happens
because the Eastern religions teach belief in reincarnation as part
of their official doctrine.
A. This is correct.
However, the actual political structure of
Judeo-Christian Theocracy on the astral plane is somewhat more
complex than we described previously. In reality, the Theocrats in
charge of bands force many advanced souls within these religions to
reincarnate, because such spirits don't make very good subordinate
Theocrats but are too valuable to the religion as a whole to kill.
The average Theocratic spirit that we have described so far realizes
that religious doctrine and mythology are lies and is cynically
seeking immortality and political power.
The enlightened ones,
although they possess a high degree of spiritual knowledge and
psychic development, still actually believe in the doctrine.
Therefore, if they joined a Theocratic band and observed first-hand
how it operates, they might rebel.
Because of this, the leaders of
Theocratic bands usually persuade such spirits to return to Earth to
further the interests of the religion.
Christian Bible contains
references to this, if you know what to look for.
Q. Do you mean the passages in which various people ask
Jesus if he
is Elias or some other Hebrew prophet returned to Earth?
A. Yes. Liberal Christians often use passages of this type as
Scriptural authority to support reincarnation, which, of course,
Q. But Jesus denied he was the reincarnation of any Hebrew prophet.
A. He did, but it was just a simple "No" to the specific questions.
The questions themselves presented him with a perfect opportunity to
make a definitive statement denying the existence of reincarnation,
and he didn't take it. This suggests that the author of the passage
was an enemy of Theocracy and knew elements of the Great Secret.
To get back to the point we were discussing, the Theocrats persuade
many of the saints in Western fourth-stage Theocratic religion to
Often, they become charismatic preachers who win large
numbers of new converts, or religious leaders who increase the power
of churches over the whole of society.
In the process, they may
become so corrupted by earthly power that they eventually become
Q. Do any of these souls ever see the fallacies in their religious
beliefs and become enemies of Theocracy, if they are raised in the
right environment when they reincarnate on Earth?
A. It sometimes happens, but rarely.
The Western fourth-stage
Theocratic religions are actually more sophisticated than the
Eastern religions and much harder to break out of once you get taken
in. This is because the Eastern religions teach reincarnation as
part of their doctrine, and because occultists are allowed to work
within the total structure of the official religion, rather than
being cast out of it and openly persecuted as in the West.
The second major group in the Invisible College is the magicians.
The term "magician" is used very loosely to refer to people who made
effective conscious use of their psychic powers while alive, and did
not voluntarily join a Theocratic band after death. It is a very
diverse group, and the spirits that compose it belonged to many
different cultures and social classes during life.
Many magician spirits belonged to the Spiritualists, Theosophists,
Rosicrucians, or other well-known Western occult groups during life.
Others belonged to occult groups that are usually labeled as Pagan
religions, such as Witchcraft, Voodoo, Santeria, etc. Still others
had been commercial fortunetellers or psychic healers.
(Many of the
magicians in this last category considered themselves Christians and
performed their psychic activities "in the name of Christ." However,
the Theocratic churches were afraid of their conscious psychic
activities and banned them from membership, so they kept their
freedom after death.)
In the East, many martial-arts experts, Yogis, Tantrists, Zen
Masters, Sufis, etc., become magician spirits after death, as do
people who make their living doing divination or practicing psychic
healing. The shamans of the surviving first-stage religions also
often join the magician spirits when they die.
What all these spirits have in common is that they had wide
practical experience with the operational use of their psychic
powers when they were alive. (This includes some people who had
possessed highly developed psychic powers during life but were never
consciously aware of them.)
The average magician had definite
religious beliefs during life, but these were not strong enough to
compel joining a Theocratic band after death. Magicians, living or
disembodied, tend to be practical people, not mystics or "true
Most of the spirit guides who assist occultists all over the world
in obtaining spiritual knowledge and in learning conscious control
of their psychic powers are magicians.
The Theocrats are seriously
frightened of the work these spirits do, which explains why
Fundamentalist propaganda contains such stern warnings against
Q. Yes. This accounts for all the propaganda against
and other aids that help people achieve independent, consciously
controlled contact with disembodied spirits. In the light of my
present knowledge, all the warnings about demonic possession through
engaging in mediumistic workings seem especially ironic: it looks to
me as if the spirit-contact that Fundamentalists achieve at services
using religious mind control are much closer to the descriptions of
"possession" than what happens to occultists when they hold
mediumistic conversations with spirits.
A. That is another important point this book has to make.
Q. What else do the magicians in the
Invisible College do besides
passing information to people with conscious mediumistic powers?
A. This is actually one of the less important things they do,
because there aren't very many conscious spirit mediums.
the magician spirits can communicate telepathically with a much
larger segment of the living population on a strictly subconscious
level, and do so very frequently. Such spirits are responsible for
many experiences that people call prophetic dreams, flashes of
insight, hunches, intuition, instinctive knowledge, etc.
some of the experiences assigned these names are entirely the
product of the person's own subconscious imagination or psychic
powers. There's usually no way to tell the difference.
Q. At this point, it seems necessary to bring up a point that may
worry some readers. It's quite natural for people to say,
like the idea that a spirit or another person can plant in my mind
an idea I will consider the product of my own memory or creative
powers. This is an invasion of my privacy and of my right to make
decisions for myself."
From a purely ethical standpoint, I have to
agree completely with this statement.
A. All we can say is,
"Would you rather be drafted into the army to
fight against beings as evil as Hitler, or to fight on their side?"
Most Earth people simply don't have the psychic strength or
spiritual knowledge to remain neutral in the war between the
Theocrats and the Invisible College.
If we don't manipulate them
subconsciously, then the Theocrats will do so anyway. We justify
this according to our own code of ethics simply by applying the
principle of "greatest good." An individual influenced by both the
IC and the Theocrats has more freedom in the long run than one
manipulated by the Theocrats alone.
We still have to deal with the issue of "informed consent," but this
book and hundreds of similar attempts to communicate the same
information are intended to provide the general public with the
information they need to make a choice. And this is what we are
really talking about when we say we want people to "make a personal
breakthrough in spiritual consciousness."
We want them to learn
enough about how mind control operates to avoid situations that
expose them to it.
Even now, when very few people are consciously aware of the nature
of Theocracy and the forces opposing it, our methods are still more
ethical than those of
the Theocrats and their religions. They
brainwash people with religious mind control as their strategy of
first choice, whereas we employ such methods very sparingly.
When we work with people who are consciously learning occultism, we
try to inform them exactly what is going on as well as we can. The
more spiritual information they learn and the stronger their
conscious psychic powers become, the more they are able to avoid
subconscious telepathic mind control by either side in the War in
For example, you yourself seem to be quite capable of
questioning us on ethical matters and making your own value
judgments about what you receive in the process of writing this
Let's get back to the description of what the magician spirits in
the Invisible College do. Placing information about Theocracy in the
minds of living people is only their second most important job. The
principal service they perform for the human race is assisting other
souls in reincarnating. It's an old Spiritualist tradition that
mediums and their spirit guides offer help to the souls of the
recently deceased that seem in distress.
This sometimes comes to the
public attention when it is done after someone has reported seeing a
ghost, but many Spiritualists do a lot more of it privately.
consider it a good deed they can do in payment of the good that is
done for them by being in direct conscious contact with the spirit
Unfortunately, the traditional Spiritualists and those of their
spirit guides who held similar beliefs during life do harm as often
as good when they attempt to aid lost souls, because most of them
lack even the most rudimentary knowledge about Theocracy.
Q. I know exactly what you mean. Only rarely do Spiritualists make
an overt attempt to help such spirits reincarnate. Instead, they
talk about such lost souls being "Earthbound" in the sense of being
confined to a portion of the astral plane in direct contact with the
Earth plane, and they try to assist the distressed spirits to enter
the "higher astral."
Before I made the breakthrough, I had no intellectual knowledge to
make me disagree with this cosmology and the resulting treatment of
lost souls, but I always felt an instinctive emotional unease
whenever I witnessed or was told about such a ritual.
Now I know
why: the whole astral plane is in direct contact with the Earth, and
the only parts of it that give the illusion of not being closely
linked to Earth are those under the control of the Theocrats.
A. All too often, when Spiritualists and similar occultists assist
souls in "entering the higher astral," they are actually sending
them straight into the control of some band of Theocrats, to be
enslaved and devoured.
That is because the majority of Spiritualists
and the magician spirits that serve as their spirit guides are too
friendly to deistic religion and too ignorant of the realities of
life on the astral plane. This is beginning to change now, but it's
still a major problem.
In many cases, people who had read a lot of occult literature during
life put up more resistance to understanding the true nature of
Theocracy than atheists, agnostics, and even some believers in
It's actually easier to show religious people
that their gods are impostors than it is to show occultists that
there are no "planes higher than
The beliefs of the
former are easier to refute because they are simple and clear-cut.
The delusions of occultists are more complex and sophisticated.
Many of them tell us,
"OK, so some Heavens are really Hells of
psychic vampirism. I'm going to keep looking until I find one that's
Unfortunately, there are Theocratic bands specifically
designed to entrap spirits like this, bands run by Theocrats who
were occultists themselves during life.
Q. In other words, the Invisible College faces the same problems in
dealing with people on the astral plane as I have in getting people
on Earth to accept the information described in this book. There are
thousands of years of false knowledge to overcome, and virtually
every body of available spiritual information is heavily corrupted
with Theocratic propaganda. It strikes me as miraculous that you
were able to start teaching such knowledge widely, both on the
astral plane and on Earth. Can you describe how?
A. About seven hundred years ago, scientists from our world
established two-way contact with spirits on Earth's astral plane.
Accidents in interstellar transportation had already marooned quite
a few extraterrestrial spirits on Earth, but they were not capable
of communicating with the societies they'd come from.
psychic machines capable of establishing such communication existed
on Earth's astral plane, but none of the spirits who came here by
accident possessed the specialized skills for using them.)
Of course such spirits were forced to reincarnate periodically, and
every time they did so, they lost a portion of their original
This meant that Earth people remained ignorant of the
basic facts about spiritual reality, including the true nature of
the Theocratic spirits who claim to be gods.
There were always a few
spirits around who knew the truth, but they were seldom able to
communicate more than hints of it to others before they lost the
memory of who they were and where they came from.
The two-way contact we speak of roughly coincided with the
beginnings of modern Western civilization. There are numerous
passages in occult literature from the late Middle Ages on about
telepathic conversations between mediums and spirit-entities who
resemble modern UFO-contactee descriptions of space people much more
than they do the traditional angels, demons, or spirits of deceased
Several of these accounts include what appears to be
advanced information about physics, astronomy, and other sciences -
and is exactly that. The accounts that have survived are just a
small part of the whole.
As soon as this contact was established, spirits from advanced
civilizations started coming to Earth deliberately to attempt to
build an advanced civilization here.
The fight against Theocracy is
a necessary negative step that has to be taken before the real goal
is accomplished, which is to make the Earth a fit place for human
beings to live.
Q. Both traditional occult literature and modern UFO-contactee
stories are full of vague references to these telepathic contacts
with extraterrestrial spirits, but such stories lack sufficient
detail to make them credible. Usually, they're just full of truisms
and banalities that don't much impress the person who hears them.
A. This is true.
It's taken centuries to prepare people even to
think about what life in a truly advanced society would be like. The
process has to be done gradually, over a long period of time, and
most of it has been done on the level of action, not that of
Q. Why couldn't the space people, the spirits from advanced
civilizations, take some kind of direct action against the Theocrats
right at the beginning? Logically, getting rid of the opposition of
the Theocrats would be the first step in building an advanced
civilization here, not the last.
A. It simply wasn't possible.
The space people don't come here
physically, but as naked spirits transmitted across vast distances.
We come here with a certain amount of knowledge, a small part of
which we can communicate directly to Earth people, and with psychic
powers that are highly trained but not especially powerful in terms
The average Theocratic spirit is actually "stronger" than
one of us in terms of sheer ability to radiate psychic energy as a
Q. Why is this? It would seem more logical to assume that your
better training would give you more raw psychic power as well.
A. This is rather hard to explain, but you should be able to grasp
at least some of it.
Remember that the space people are as human as
you are, though not all of us inhabit bodies at home that resemble
yours. Every human soul is intended to link periodically to a body.
That means it has a certain size and shape, a fixed composition and
patterning of astral matter, that is natural for it.
A normal spirit
can transmit only limited amounts of astral energy through the
psychic powers. This amount of energy is actually lower, not higher,
than that which can be radiated by the psychic powers of a similar
spirit incarnated in a physical body.
Q. I'm already familiar with this idea: the incarnated soul draws
energy from the physical body to energize its psychic powers.
A. Now, the Theocratic spirits are not bound by this limitation,
because they don't incarnate periodically and don't have to worry
about keeping their astral soul in a natural condition. Instead,
they absorb energy from other spirits and grow as much as they can.
Abnormal growth gives them access to more internal astral energy and
hence stronger psychic powers than a normal spirit possesses.
Q. OK, I understand this. You are forced to use finesse rather than
brute strength in fighting the Theocrats, and also forced to enlist
the aid of living people in many different ways. I would also like
to point out how closely some of the matters just discussed tie in
with certain details in the Shaver Mystery as discussed in
But what about psychic technology? I know you now have access
to it. Couldn't space people have activated these psychic machines
long ago, and saved Earth people centuries of misery?
A. We didn't do this until the present because the process requires
large amounts of astral energy.
One of the reasons we have assisted
you in building a physical technology is so that we could tap some
of the psychic energy raised by the electronic
and use it to repair and run psychic machines constructed of astral
We could have done it previously only by using the methods
employed by second-stage Theocratic religion: mass human sacrifices
and mass destruction of human souls. This is far beyond the limits
to which we will stretch our ethics. It's a means that no end will
We will discuss psychic technology further in Part Three.
we'll continue discussing the wars that free spirits have been
waging against Theocracy throughout history, starting with the
concept of "The Devil."

Satan and Buddha
A. The whole mythology of Satan and the Rebellion of the Angels was
the creation of spirits fighting Theocracy long ago, and the
original teachings of the Buddha contain similar elements.
Q. Why does the Invisible College deliberately use terms like
"Satan"? Doesn't your use of this kind of terminology make it easier
for Theocratic propaganda to accuse all of your friends on Earth of
A. Somewhere in this book we're going to have to deal with
accusations of this sort, so we might as well do it here. We have
good reason to use terms that encourage people to take a closer look
at the Biblical myths about Satan, which we'll describe later in
For now, we'll just refute the charge that the
Invisible College advocates worship of Satan, because we totally
reject the concept of "worship" as the term is usually defined:
"Absolute, unquestioning belief in and obedience to a spiritual
being or a body of doctrine."
Individual sovereignty is the most fundamental postulate of the
philosophy of the Invisible College.
Each person must assume full
responsibility for making value judgments on ethical and political
We never advocate absolute obedience to any authority, even
our own. We urge people to resist orders from leaders if they
disagree with them, and to use laws, customs, and ideologies only as
guides for making their own decisions on specific issues.
personal responsibility for running their own lives makes people
wiser and stronger, because they are usually rewarded for their
successes and punished for their mistakes. Unquestioning obedience
to orders or fixed doctrine only makes them increasingly dependent
To get back to our discussion of the devil, the concepts that Satan
is a "God of Evil" who demands the same kind of worship as
or other Theocratic conceptions of deity, and that he tempts people
to do exactly the reverse of all the individual ethical principles
in the Judeo-Christian moral code, are both Theocratic propaganda
incorporated into religious doctrine to keep people from
understanding our original and constructive purpose in creating the
myth about Satan and getting it incorporated in the Bible.
Q. This is obvious once you point it out. Satan has a much more
favorable image in literature and folk-tradition in all the
Judeo-Christian cultures than you'd expect him to have if he was
really the archetype of reversed Biblical morality that religious
doctrine claims he is.
A. Quite true.
Look at all the folk tales in which
the Devil simply
opposes the puritanical, "bluenose" aspects of Christian morality
that say that sex and other sensual pleasures are intrinsically
We've already pointed out the role these puritanical doctrines
play in the religious mind-control process.
The Theocrats want religious believers to feel guilty every time
they feel sexual desire or enjoy any "pleasures of the flesh." The
guilt literally addicts them to attending church services that
subject them to religious mind control.
When the Devil of folk
tradition says that sensual pleasure is not immoral in itself, then
he is actually advocating an ethical code superior to the
Q. Satan, in other words, often preaches a perfectly valid,
humanistic morality, rather than the inversion of Judeo-Christian
morality that religious doctrine attributes to him. I've certainly
seen examples of this in literature from many different countries
A. In ancient Hebrew, the word "satan" simply meant "adversary" or
We communicated the myth about the "temptation of Adam and
Eve by the serpent" to some of the prophets who wrote the Old
Testament just to ensure that people who read Judeo-Christian
scripture would realize that Jehovah has enemies.
We are also
responsible for other elements in that myth: that disobeying Jehovah
by eating the "forbidden fruit" enabled human beings to discern good
from evil, and that there was another secret, that of the tree of
life" that would give people eternal life without involvement with
Jehovah or other Theocrats.
Q. Now that you point it out, the whole myth of the "Fall of Man"
doesn't seem to belong with the rest of the creation myth in
A. The material in the book of Genesis, even though it pertains to
the Creation and the earliest history of the Hebrews and the Jewish
religion, was mostly dictated to Jewish prophets after the Exodus.
Judaism started to adopt important elements of fourth-stage
Theocratic religion during the Egyptian Captivity, not long after
Ikhnaton tried to change Egyptian Paganism into a fourth-stage
religion and failed.
Fourth-stage Theocratic religions all have a
creation myth that includes the concept of Original Sin.
Q. I had formed the impression that Christianity was a fourth-stage
religion from its beginning but that Judaism was still in the third
stage at the time it was founded. My understanding is that the
practice of animal sacrifice is the primary distinguishing
characteristic of a third-stage Theocratic religion. First-century
Judaism still practiced animal sacrifices at the Temple in
A. No, Judaism was almost entirely into the fourth stage itself when
Christianity broke away from it. It started becoming a fourth-stage
religion at the time of Moses, though the process was gradual rather
Survival of limited amounts of animal sacrifice was
just an atavism. The core of Jewish doctrine from the time of Moses
down to the present has been that Jehovah is both an angry,
judgmental deity who condemns people for Original Sin, and a loving
god who forgives their sins after various acts of faith and ritual
All the Christians did was assign separate names to these
two different aspects of the one deity:
Jehovah, or God the Father,
to the judgmental aspect, and Jesus, or God the Son, to the
Q. OK. I understand this part well enough. Please continue
explaining the creation myth in Genesis and the origin of the
concepts of Satan and the War in Heaven.
A. First of all, a fourth-stage Theocratic religion has no need for
a god of evil to tempt people into sin: the concept of Original Sin
itself makes any sort of Devil superfluous.
However, if such a
concept survives as an atavism from an earlier stage of the
religion's development, it does no harm, any more than did the token
sacrifices of doves by the Jews at Jerusalem, as described in the
Judaism had originally been a polytheistic religion.
Most of the angels with names ending "iel" had originally been "god
of..."; for example, "Barakiel - God of Lightning."
already had a concept of "Satan" similar to the "adversary" or
"trickster" gods in other third-stage religions. It was quite
natural to incorporate Satan into the creation myth to tempt people
into Original Sin.
Q. Was the Hebrew Pagan deity Satan originally a god in serpentine
Damballa and some of the other African trickster deities?
A. Possibly. We really don't know.
What we're telling you here is
mostly derived from our knowledge of modern religious and occult
works, supplemented to some extent by rumors that have circulated on
the astral plane for thousands of years. We have no exact historical
details on any of this, just educated guesses.
However, the choice
of a serpent image for the deity that tempted people into disobeying
Jehovah is obvious if you realize that it was enemies of Theocracy
who dictated the myth in the form in which we know it.
The serpent was intended as a symbol of reincarnation, because
snakes shed their skins, leaving behind a casting that resembles a
dead snake to a casual glance, while the animal crawls on about its
business with a shiny, new, young-looking skin.
The Theocrats who
called themselves "Jehovah" did not want people to believe in
reincarnation, even though the fourth-stage religious concept of
"dwelling in the House of the Lord forever" was probably not known
to the Jews at the time the creation myth was first dictated.
Q. Many scholars today don't think the concept of reincarnation was
even known to the Jews at that time. Was it?
A. As we said before, we have no exact historical knowledge of the
time, just age-old rumor and inference from literature on Earth.
However, our best guess is that every human culture throughout
history and back into prehistory has had at least rudimentary
knowledge of reincarnation. There are references to it in literature
from every culture we know about, including those in the ancient
Near East contemporary with the people who wrote Genesis, so we
assume the concept was known to them.
More important, a small number
of people in every culture have always possessed enough conscious
past-life memories to circulate persistent rumors about
reincarnation, even though a Theocratic religion does its best to
Q. An aside. I've gotten the impression from what you've told me so
far that the Invisible College has only been in existence for a few
centuries, that it started around the end of the Middle Ages or
after. If so, who was opposing Theocracy at the time of Moses, or
whenever the myth concerning Adam and Eve and the serpent was
A. Exact names for the forces opposing Theocracy are actually
arbitrary and unimportant.
We prefer to reserve the term "Invisible
College" to refer to the highly organized opposition to Theocracy
that started when large numbers of spirits from advanced
extraterrestrial civilizations started coming to Earth voluntarily
about six or seven hundred years ago.
However, small numbers of such
spirits have been accidentally transported to Earth's astral plane
throughout history and far back into prehistoric times, and many of
them have tried to fight Theocracy as best they could. One spirit
with advanced knowledge could have been responsible for the creation
myth we're describing here.
You already understand how the Theocrats
dictate "Holy writ" to religious believers, don't you?
Q. Well, I assume from reading about
Mohammed and the Koran and
similar cases that the process is almost identical to what we're
doing here to produce this book: some form of automatic writing or
other mediumistic reception of data from spirits on the astral
plane. The only difference is that the spirits involved are
Theocrats instead of members of the Invisible College.
A. You're right. However, it's extremely difficult for the mediums
themselves to tell exactly who in the spirit world is dictating to
them at a given time.
That's why we always review everything you
receive from us several times and leave you to be the final judge as
to whether what you've received is really from us or is Theocratic
Q. I realize that I have to be responsible for that, to ensure that
what I receive is internally consistent and agrees with my own
rational judgment based on the evidence available in my memory. I
suspect that the Invisible College finds it easier to send
anti-Theocratic messages to the prophets of Theocratic religions,
who don't normally question divine revelations, than its for
Theocrats to deceive conscious Spiritual Revolutionaries like me.
A. Yes. And this is exactly what happened with the myth about the
serpent and the Fall.
A spirit hostile to Theocracy managed to
dictate the story to one of the Hebrew prophets, and somehow it
survived long enough in folk tradition to be written into the Old
And we're glad it did, because it reveals some important
spiritual truths to anyone capable of understanding them.
"Right and wrong
are only what I tell you they are, and they are absolute values that
Satan, on the other hand, says,
"Use your intellect to
determine what is right and wrong in a given situation, because such
value judgments are highly dependent on the environment you're in at
a given time."
Since the latter statement is rational and the former
irrational, people are put into conflict with Theocratic religious
doctrine every time they use their intellect to make rational value
Q. Most organized religions seem rather proud of the fact that
people have to accept their doctrine on faith simply because it
A. They do, because they have no choice. And this religious myth is
one of the reasons why.
The Theocrats don't want people to become
consciously aware of the basically illogical nature of absolute
moral doctrine, but there is nothing they can do about it. The more
highly developed a person's rational intellect, the less likely he
or she is to accept religious doctrine on "blind faith."
The serpent myth is only a minor detail in Judeo-Christian
mythology, but it has been very important over the centuries in the
fight against Theocracy. And it's also obvious why the
Judeo-Christian Theocrats countered it with further mythology about
Satan as the Father of Lies who goes around telling people it's good
to kill and steal and otherwise do the opposite of the religious
The Theocrats tried to obscure the information about using the
intellect to make ethical decisions on a rational basis. They added
many extraneous details to the mythology about Satan.
they included the idea that telepathy, mediumship, and other
psychic powers are either "works of God" or "works of the Devil."
This allows them to forbid religious believers to communicate with
spirits hostile to Theocracy without revealing various facts about
spiritual reality that the Theocrats wish to conceal.
And then there's all the propaganda about
demonic possession. As we
discussed earlier, the irony of the whole concept of "possession" is
that the Theocrats themselves practice something rather similar to
it when they program people into becoming willing slaves through
religious mind control.
The important thing to remember whenever possession is mentioned is
simply this: no spirit, Theocrat or otherwise, can actually force
living people to do things contrary to their conscious will and
their customary ideas of right and wrong.
control can only reprogram a person's opinions and beliefs one small
step at a time: it's a slow, gradual process, not a sudden, dramatic
It's very important for the reader to realize this.
However, we do have to point out that even gradual reprogramming can
produce some extremely evil and violent people if it continues over
a whole lifetime. There are plenty of people in this country right
now who are emotionally and morally capable of "killing a Commie for
Christ" or acting on the literal meaning of the Biblical passage,
"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."
However, this has nothing
to do with the sudden, violent "possession by evil spirits" that
Fundamentalist propaganda spreads around so freely, and that many
serious occultists also accept. That, fortunately, is a myth.
Q. You haven't covered the Tree of Life yet. What was that supposed
A. As the serpent myth represents the concept that people have the
right to determine good and evil for themselves through the free
exercise of the conscious intellect, the Tree of Life represents
certain essential details of the breakthrough information - the
concepts that people can only achieve immortality through
reincarnation and that the "eternal life in heaven" offered by
deities is a delusion.
However, you must remember that the Tree of
Life is mentioned only so the Theocrats can gloat that they
prevented people from gaining this knowledge.
Q. The myth states that Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the Tree of
Knowledge and learned to distinguish right from wrong with the
rational intellect, but they were expelled from the Garden of Eden
before they could "eat also of the fruit of the Tree of Life, that
is also in the Garden, and become like unto us."
Many occultists and
Biblical scholars have been intrigued by that passage, not just for
the tantalizing references to a secret of immortality, but because
it s one of the only passages in the whole Bible in which Jehovah
uses the first-person plural, "us" instead of "me".
A. The secret referred to in this passage is not just immortality,
but the complete knowledge that Theocratic spirits have about the
nature of the soul, reincarnation, psychic powers, etc.
the spirit who dictated these passages tried to communicate the
whole breakthrough and failed.
The beginning of Buddhism is a similar case in which enemies of
Theocracy tried to help people to make the breakthrough but didn't
quite succeed. After the Buddha achieved enlightenment, he made some
statements that seemed self-contradictory, at least on the surface.
He attributed his spiritual progress to his own efforts, not to a
"gift" from omnipotent deities. He also stated in so many words that
ordinary people could achieve enlightenment through practicing the
proper psychic development techniques.
But at the same time, his
statements about reincarnation appeared paradoxical.
He said that
achieving enlightenment meant that he no longer needed to
reincarnate, but he also said that he would continue to do so to
help other people achieve enlightenment.
Q. This seems to be a major contradiction, because if enlightenment
had made him a sort of "super-god," superior to the Vedantic gods,
then he wouldn't need to incarnate to assist people in spiritual
development. He could do it as a disembodied spirit, remaining on
the astral plane and using his enormous psychic powers to
communicate whatever information people needed.
A. Once people make the breakthrough, it becomes obvious that there
is no contradiction in any of these statements about the Buddha.
What the Buddha called his enlightenment is actually a version of
this breakthrough. He became consciously aware of exactly what the Vedantic gods really are and how they operate, even though the words
in which his followers wrote down his knowledge are somewhat
They understood the most important part of his message quite
clearly: the path to enlightenment is the disciplined practice of
various psychic development techniques.
Notice too that the Buddha
himself didn't limit his followers in which specific techniques they
used, because part of his knowledge must have been that different
techniques work better for a given individual than others.
quite vague on this, and Buddhists ever since have practiced a wide
variety of techniques drawn from Yoga, Tantra, and other sources
However, the basic teachings of Buddha are anti-deistic whereas
those of Vedanta were highly deistic. Many modern Buddhists believe
that if they personally achieve enlightenment, their souls will
merge with the soul of Buddha into Nirvana, a "state of blissful
nothingness." Vedantic doctrine in the time of the Buddha already
taught that enlightened souls would merge with Brahma or some other
This doctrine was grafted onto the Buddha's teachings
death, when Buddhism was taken over by the Vedantic Theocrats.
Q. You're saying that Buddhism was originally founded to fight
So were Gnosticism and some forms of early Christianity. But
to get back to Buddhism, the Buddha implied by his own example that
the enlightened were capable of transcending reincarnation but
deliberately chose not to do so in order to be of service to the
The Buddha realized he could become a Theocrat and
remain on the astral plane indefinitely, but he refused to do so for
This interpretation of the early Buddhist teaching
is possible for people who have already made the breakthrough from
some other source, but it is not stated clearly enough in the
writings themselves to make finding and understanding it very easy.
Even though he founded a major religion, the enlightenment the
Buddha achieved was still only a partial breakthrough. Much of what
he learned from the Invisible College was on a subconscious level;
it is reflected indirectly in his various teachings and practices as
described by his followers after his death when they wrote the early
literature, but much of it never came out in so many words in his
Q. In other words, he didn't actually say that the Vedantic gods are
evil beings who eat souls, or that enlightened souls need to
reincarnate for their own good as well as that of living people.
A. This vital information is implied, but never directly stated.
example, the Buddha did teach that animal sacrifices and "austere
practices" - by which he meant self-torture, starvation, etc. - are
not mandatory for onto achieve enlightenment; but he didn't
antagonize the Vedantic majority around him, or their gods, by
saying that "The gods are evil."
However, after his death, the
legends portrayed the Vedantic gods as "worshipping" the enlightened
Buddha, implying at the least that they had no power over him.
It is also important to remember that the Buddha was preaching to an
audience with far different religious beliefs from those of modern
Westerners, or of modern Buddhists, for that matter. The Vedanta of
his time was a third-stage Pagan religion based on large-scale
animal sacrifice and orgiastic rituals, but its doctrine also
included many atavistic myths surviving from the first stage.
well as being the priests of third-stage Vedanta, the Brahmins also
functioned as first-stage
shamans who insured that various spiritual
beings were "fed" to keep them from eating human souls after death.
Direct references to the gods as "Eaters of Souls" occur in Vedantic
hymns used in the Soma ritual.
Q. I've also noticed another seeming incongruity about the teachings
of Buddha. He stresses that enlightenment is achieved only through
psychic development practices, but most of his actual sermons or
lectures seemed to be on ethics.
Buddhist ethics are very similar to
the traditional Vedantic ethics of the culture he lived in. He
stressed certain elements more than others - for example, total
non-violence against both people and animals - but these were
already present in the Vedantic doctrines, which contained many
A. Yes, he preached a version of the Vedantic ethical code and
religious customs stripped of some of the worst self-contradictions,
like the concept of non-violence co-existing with animal sacrifice
and with various forms of violence against oneself in the name of
However, it is easy to misunderstand what he was
actually doing, which was to separate ethics from the process of
Q. In other words, he said living ethically was important, but not
directly related to the psychic development that causes
enlightenment. Again, this interpretation is possible from reading
the Buddhist literature, but the point is not made clearly enough
for most people to understand it. Certainly most modern Buddhists
A. Modern Buddhism, except for a few occult groups associated with
it, is a Theocratic religion.
Buddhists feel that their ethical
conduct as well as their psychic development practices will earn
them enlightenment by pleasing various incarnations of the Buddha,
all of which are imagined to co-exist as gods similar to the Vedantic gods.
This is not what Buddha taught at all.
Q. Certain Zen masters, whom I class with the occult minority within
Buddhism, have said things like, "There are no gods; there are no Buddhas."
A. When they do this, they are fighting against the tendency of the
majority of Buddhists to worship the Buddha as a god, instead of
seeking enlightenment through their own efforts and practicing
ethical conduct for humanistic reasons - to serve their own
interests and that of other people - instead of to earn divine
Zen masters have even told students who were drifting into
deism, "Contemplate the Buddha as a piece of dried shit."
Q. Before I made the breakthrough, I put a pantheistic
interpretation on passages like this:
"The Buddha is everywhere,
including in the desiccated turd."
Now I see that this is an attempt
to answer the Theocratic tendencies in Buddhism by trying to
extinguish the believer's tendencies to fall into deism.
A. This anti-deistic, anti-Theocratic teaching is even more evident
in the doctrines of some of the Eastern occult secret societies
involved with the martial arts.
These secret societies have often
worked under the direction of the Invisible College to fight against
the control of both religion and politics in China and Japan by the
That's why they sometimes tell initiates, "we are
devils," because they are literally fighting against the "gods," in
the sense of fighting deism and defending the idea that people can
achieve enlightenment through their own efforts.
However, you have
to be careful when you read about secret societies of this type,
because many of them have fought for the Theocrats at one time and
against them at other times, depending on the personalities and
beliefs of the members.
At this point, we'll leave the adversaries of Theocracy within
religion and go back to discussing the work of the Invisible College
in building modern Western civilization.
The Age of Reason
Q. When you refer to the Age of Reason, are you describing what went
on in the old Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges several hundred years
ago, when these organizations had so much influence over the
development of modern civilization?
A. Yes. We wanted initiates on the lower levels to be reprogrammed
to accept what's now called the "Philosophy of the Age of
This included the form of political liberalism
sketched out in the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights,
support of capitalism and industrial technology, a progressive
attitude towards innovation in science and the arts, reliance on
rational pragmatic decision-making over dependence on tradition, and
a general attitude toward life that was constructive, optimistic,
We realized it wasn't possible to turn most of these
people into high-level psychics or magicians or to teach them much
about the true nature of Theocracy; we just wanted to turn them into
"good average citizens" as that term is defined in the United States
You've already figured out some of the things we did to accomplish
this, and we will now explain the whole subject more clearly.
types of consciousness-raising programs were used within the lodges:
one trained initiates in the lower degrees to become rational
atheists and political liberals
the other, more advanced, program,
taught high-level occult knowledge and conscious control over the
The first of these programs always had many more members than the
Initiates who learned to accept the
Masonic philosophy often
became immune to falling into a religious trance during the rituals.
This is an example of the difference between the way we reprogram
people's minds and the way the Theocrats do.
We keep planting
information in the subconscious that says,
"Think for yourself.
Don't accept anything without evidence. Do what you feel is best
under the circumstances rather then just accepting what someone
tells you. You can become a better person if you only learn how to
Judge yourself realistically: you are neither a
self-righteous saint nor a miserable sinner, but simply an ordinary
human being with free will and control over your own destiny."
Q. This is almost the opposite of what the Theocrats program in
during Fundamentalist Christian services. They want worshippers to
say "Thy will be done," and submit completely to the telepathic
influences they receive, as well as to obey religious doctrine to
It's easy to see how your method tends eventually to
liberate initiates from the influence of religious mind control: the
more that people are affected by the reprogramming process, the less
motivation they have to enter the religious trance, which involves
voluntarily allowing the conscious will to lose control.
A. This is correct. The more people become accustomed to making
decisions rationally and forming an accurate appraisal of their
self-worth, the less likely they are to fall into a religious trance
When individuals in one of the old lodges reached
this stage of being in a normal state of consciousness during the
rituals most of the time, they automatically progressed to one of
the "higher" degrees and assumed one of the numerous positions of
Initiates on this level were expected to
study the lodge's traditions, mythology, and doctrine intensely on a
strictly intellectual level. This wasn't done at rituals that
employed the religious trance, but through ordinary reading and
tutorial study, exactly as if the initiates were learning history or
This is the level that tried to replace Christian faith with
"worship of the Goddess of Reason," and then went into a philosophy
that would be called "scientific materialism" and "rational
This middle level of initiation was intended to
produce a personality-type similar to one very common in American
society today - the millions of people who are not very interested
in spiritual matters of any kind, but are chiefly concerned with
their personal survival and happiness here on Earth.
Some of them
call themselves atheists or agnostics, but just as many profess
nominal belief in Christianity or some other religious or occult
system. However, regardless of what they say they believe,
spirituality has very little emotional impact on their daily life.
People like this are still either a slight majority or a very large
minority in American society.
When we started this process several centuries ago, the influence of
Theocratic religion was still so strong that it was easier to turn
people into atheists or agnostics than to teach them directly about
We taught people to relate positively to the
material world, and to the advanced civilization that was beginning
to develop around them, as more than just,
"a vale of tears to pass
through on the way to Heaven."
We wanted the relationship between
people and their earthly environment to become more important than
their relationship with "God" and religion.
We had to proceed step
by step and use the methods of behavioral psychology, which are
based on knowledge of how the human mind is actually programmed.
States of consciousness and environmental reinforcement are the most
important factors to consider here.
Q. Can you clarify this? When you say "states of consciousness," are
you talking about the religious trance?
A. Yes. We had to proceed step by step.
First, we took people who
had been raised within Theocratic religion and had been entering the
religious trance during church services all their lives, and we
manipulated them into attending the rituals of the Masonic and
These rituals also employed the religious trance
and, on the lower levels of initiation, taught a doctrine that was
not so alien to the average lodge member's existing Christian
beliefs that it broke the trance.
During these rituals, members were gradually reprogrammed to become
more rational in their thinking and more materialistic in their
emotional goals for their lives.
The social environment of the lodge
increased their self-esteem, so they no longer thought of themselves
as "miserable sinners in need of salvation" but as "free men under
God," and eventually as "free members of a brotherhood of equals.
Lodge members received positive reinforcement through religious mind
control during lodge rituals. This made the members feel good while
they learned various philosophical principles quite different from
those at the core of Fundamentalist Christianity even though phrased
in many of the same terms.
One very important thing to realize here
is that the basic ethical philosophy of the eighteenth-century
Freemasons was very, very similar to the moral codes of the various
Theocratic Christian sects of the day.
At least ninety-five percent
of the individual precepts were the same.
Q. That's hard to accept.
A. Nevertheless, if you think about it without bias, you'll realize
it's true. In fact, there is only one fundamental difference between
the two codes of conduct, which affects a small number of separate
Christian doctrine says,
"Your first duty is to obey the will of God
as you perceive it during church services and in private prayer and
meditation; your second is to obey religious doctrine and tradition
as you learn it on the intellectual level; and your third is to
follow the dictates of your conscience and intellectual will."
contrast, the philosophy of the Age of Enlightenment says,
first duty is to follow the dictates of reason as applied to the
knowledge you learn from your environment; your second is to work
for your own survival and happiness as long as you don't harm other
individuals or society in general by so doing; and your third is to
work for ‘the greatest good for the greatest number,' which
sometimes involves greater or lesser degrees of self-sacrifice."
These statements are diametrically opposed in theory, but in the
routine circumstances of life in a reasonably stable society, they
produce behavior that is almost identical.
In other words, both the
Christian and the Freemason valued a work ethic, tried to avoid
harmful excesses of all kinds, etc.
The difference is not in what
people did in the way of detailed, routine ethical behavior, but in
the long-term effects that the two radically different philosophical
codes had on total personality development.
The Christian code took people deeper into bondage to the Theocrats;
the Masonic code liberated them from that bondage without
substituting any other master for "God." What's most important here
is that the Masonic initiates were taught to receive increasing
amounts of positive reinforcement from their material and social
environment, and decreasing amounts from religious mind control.
Now you can understand what we mean by "states of consciousness" and
"environmental reinforcement" in this context. We were using the
significant increase in the quality of individual life resulting
from technological advances to extinguish the influence of religious
mind control over people's emotional life and personality
Eventually, a great many members of the lodges became immune to
religious mind control and remained in a normal state of waking
consciousness during the rituals.
More important, they taught these
same principles to their children of both genders, so the all-male
lodges eventually changed the average personality structure of the
Q. Is this one of the reasons why Fundamentalist propaganda claims
that, "Secular Humanism is a religion"?
A. Yes. From the Theocrats' point of view, religion is just a tool
for programming the minds of living people.
By this same definition,
all humanistic institutions are technically religions, because they
also program the human mind - whether they do it directly through
religious mind control, or indirectly through operant conditioning
from the social and physical environment. Over the last five
centuries, we have improved the quality of earthly life for so many
people that the "vale of tears" concept has lost much of its appeal.
The idea that people can significantly improve the quality of life
on Earth by their own efforts is one of the most important
strategies that the Invisible College uses in fighting Theocracy.
Its strongest point is that we don't need to use subconscious
emotional manipulation or intellectual persuasion to get people to
accept it. Just living and working within a modern technological
society proves the basic validity of a humanistic philosophy by
direct environmental conditioning.
On the conscious level, people
may think about the problems modern society has not yet solved and
yearn for "the good old days"; but on a deeper level, they know they
are as well off, on the average, as human beings on this planet have
Theocratic propaganda and religious mind control have
great difficulty extinguishing this intuitive feeling, because its
cause is environmental conditioning rooted in physical reality.
Q. I speculated in Part One that the lodges you're talking about
were controlled by a small, secret conspiracy of advanced occultists
who had at least a rough conscious idea of what they were doing. Is
A. Not really. We actually had to do most of the work ourselves.
fact, the chain of cause-and-effect was almost exactly the opposite
of what you speculated about in Part One. We, meaning disembodied
spirits in the Invisible College, telepathically manipulated the
subconscious minds of leaders in the Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges
to design their rituals and doctrines in certain ways.
Many of the
individual elements of these rituals and doctrines were drawn from
the writings and practices of previous occult groups, including some
that you would consider quite advanced in both spiritual knowledge
and psychic training techniques.
However, the vast majority of the men who actually incorporated
these elements into Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism in the
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries had only a vague idea of what
they were doing.
They read various occult works, talked to members
of many different occult organizations, and incorporated those ideas
that "felt right" into the lodges they were founding or
re-organizing. Of course, it was our subconscious telepathic
influence that guided this process.
Q. Are you saying that the pre-existing knowledge gathered by
advanced occultists over many centuries was useful to you in
founding lodges and manipulating them into the form you desired, but
that there was no conscious human conspiracy involved?
A. This is not true either.
There were many different conscious
conspiracies of advanced occultists, in the seventeenth century and
later, which realized that various lodges of the Freemason and Rosicrucians were beginning to have a major influence on the
progress of Western society and tried to manipulate their activities
in ways that would produce what we now call "Modern Western
Practically every advanced occultist in Europe joined one or more of
these lodges at this time. And once they'd joined, they tried to
teach their particular school of knowledge to their lodge-brothers
and to influence the development of the lodge's doctrines and
rituals to conform to their particular preconceptions.
occultists included Cabalists, Gnostics, Alchemists, Hermetics; and
influences from all these spiritual systems are still visible today
in the Masonic and Rosicrucian doctrines.
There are spiritual knowledge and psychic-training techniques
brought from China and India by the Islamic Sufi sect and taught to
the medieval Knights Templar. There's knowledge inherited from the
ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, and Babylonians, taught to the Masons
and Rosicrucians by Cabalists, Gnostics, and Astrologers.
important source of psychic training techniques came from the
ancient Greeks by way of the medieval Alchemists: a system of
homosexual sex magic. This is one reason why so many high-level
occult lodges were exclusively male for so long - they knew
homosexual sex magic techniques but not heterosexual ones.
always been some heterosexual sex magic in the Western occult
tradition as well, from both Middle Eastern and European Pagan
sources; but it's only been in the last century or so, after direct
contact was established with the Orient, that the two began to
become equally common.
The important thing to remember about all this is that the
individual elements of advanced occult knowledge and the people who
brought them into the Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges of the Age of
Enlightenment were not the "secret, conscious, guiding conspiracy"
that you speculated they were
in Part One.
Q. This is obvious now. You were the conscious guiding force, and
the advanced occultists were actually being subconsciously
manipulated along with the rest of the people involved.
A. Well, many of the occultists had some conscious knowledge of what
we were doing, and were actively co-operating.
of them actively opposed us by trying to turn their lodge into a
Theocratic Cult. Possessing advanced occult knowledge doesn't
automatically make a person morally virtuous. Even today, some of
the advanced occult lodges derived from the Masonic-Rosicrucian
tradition are "Black Lodges" (lodges under the control of the
It's extremely important for your readers to realize that Theocratic
enslavement and psychic vampirism are not things that happen only to
disembodied spirits after death.
Living people can do virtually the
same things to other living people. Black magicians can't literally
devour other people's souls the way the disembodied Theocrats do to
other spirits, but they can still deprive people of all free will
and self-esteem, and eventually drive them into insanity or suicide.
This can be done in a Christian context, as
Jim Jones did with the
People's Temple, or in the context of almost any other religious or
occult group. Many of the modern cults are also examples of this
Theocracy on Earth like
the Moonies, the
Rajneesh Cult, etc.
such groups aren't always openly identified as religious or occult
Symbionese Liberation Army was such a group, and
so was the
Manson Family. So are many terrorist groups, especially
those in the service of Islamic Fundamentalists.
A number of present-day rock groups are actually
bands of living
Theocrats, enslaving their fans and draining energy from them at
concerts. This last type of living Theocrat is especially dangerous
right now, because such people can influence a large number of
people who listen to their music on records or over the radio, using
electronic mind control techniques that we will describe later.
of the worst things about this movement is that some of these people
have made the breakthrough. They know what they are doing, and they
still do it.
Q. In other words, a person can find out the truth about Theocracy
"Fine. I'm going to found a cult based on religious mind
control while I'm alive; then, after I die, I'm going to control it
from the astral plane and become a Theocrat."
A. Yes, and this attitude is becoming more and more common as more
people make the breakthrough and become consciously aware of the
existence of Theocracy.
This is another main reason why we are
having you write this book: to warn potential victims of this new
type of mind control and teach them how to avoid it. We'll tell more
about this fifth stage of Theocracy later.
It is important to remember that people have been making the
breakthrough for centuries, in the sense of realizing that the
"gods" behind many religious groups are simply the spirits of
ordinary deceased human beings playing politics and trying to remain
in positions of power on the astral plane for long periods of time.
However, this knowledge, in itself, doesn't automatically make
people hostile to Theocracy.
Where so many advanced occultists have made a fatal error is in not
realizing that Theocracy is what you might call a disease or
Remaining on the astral plane for long periods of
time and absorbing vital energy from other spirits is not a natural
or healthy condition for a human spirit. All Theocrats eventually
become degenerate and insane.
Now, we've always told this to anyone
capable of holding conscious telepathic conversations with us, but
we haven't always been believed. The illusion of achieving
immortality for the ego is a very powerful corrupting influence. You
can see why many occultists wouldn't want to listen.
The quality and completeness of a person's breakthrough knowledge
are very important.
Until very recently, communicating many of the
individual details that constitute the breakthrough has been
extremely difficult. Notice that when you write about it, you employ
many terms and concepts from recent scientific discoveries: computer
science, behavioral psychology, modern physics, etc.
Think how much
harder it would be to understand Theocracy without this background.
Q. I understand. Please amplify what you said about the Masonic and
Rosicrucian lodges being a cause more than an effect of advanced
occult conspiracies during the last three or four centuries.
A. It's very simple, really.
presence of the lodges in Western
society increased the number of advanced occultists enormously,
because they served as a visible training ground for people who
otherwise might never have had access to psychic training and
spiritual knowledge outside organized religion.
The rituals and
jargon of the lodges were secret, but everyone knew approximately
what went on inside them - or at least, anyone with the potential to
become an advanced occultist could guess.
This meant that fewer
people who had possessed occult training in a past life would spend
a "wasted" incarnation in which they had no access to formal
Q. This makes sense, and also seems relevant to the basic theme of
this whole book, the War in Heaven. You're describing what the
struggle between the Theocrats and the Invisible College is really
like. It resembles an ordinary political conflict on Earth: fights
to recruit new members, to build institutions that serve the
ideological cause, etc.
A. Correct. It's not a war between "God and Satan" at all, in the
sense of a conflict between absolutes of good and evil. It is
completely a matter of politics, and neither side is completely good
Of course, we are convinced that the side of the Invisible
College is better than the side of the Theocrats by any reasonable
To sum up what we've said in this chapter, the Age of Reason was a
major step in the progress of Western civilization and a significant
victory for the Invisible College over the Theocrats in the War in
During the period from about 1700 to the 1960's, there was
just as much improvement in the average level of individual human
consciousness as there was in physical technology, scientific
knowledge, and the design of social and political institutions.
goal was to break the hold of religious mind-control over the
majority of people in the First World, and we accomplished it
reasonably well. Large numbers of people are still enslaved to
Theocratic religion, of course, but such belief-systems no longer
dominate the collective consciousness of the society to the extent
they once did.
Today, even the majority of people in the advanced Western countries
who consider themselves devout religious believers actually put
reason above faith, and humanistic concerns before blind obedience
to traditional doctrine.
Do you see why we used the quasi-religious
rituals of the Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges to accomplish this?
Q. Well, it looks as if you used a form of religious mind control to
raise the consciousness of the majority of people you worked with,
because they had started out as religious believers and were used to
such techniques. However, you taught more advanced psychic training
techniques such as sex magic to the minority who were ready for it.
A. The important thing to recognize here is that even the most
advanced magical lodges based on the Masonic/Rosicrucian tradition
still train their members with rituals that employ the religious
Q. I've noticed that most advanced traditional occult organizations
still practice such rituals: for example, they teach people to enter
a true psychic trance by first entering a religious trance. Now that
I've made the breakthrough, I realize that is why I've also felt
uncomfortable trying to participate in the magical workings of such
lodges: I know how to assume a psychic trance directly, and feel an
instinctive revulsion during rituals that attempt to put me into a
A. This is correct, and it's the main reason why we've been
spreading the word telepathically that the Age of Reason is ending
and a new age is beginning.
Its starting point is another major
revolution in consciousness, as we will discuss in the next chapter.
A Revolution in Consciousness
Q. The term "revolution in consciousness" is usually associated with
the Sixties psychedelics movement. Can you answer some of the
questions I've had about drugs that I've never been able to figure
out on my own?
A. There's much more to the revolution in consciousness that's now
going on than just the widespread use of consciousness-altering
drugs, but it's a good starting point.
Especially, the drug issue
illustrates that there's a War in Heaven going on: we try to teach
people how to use drugs for their own good, and the Theocrats work
to create the "drug problem" in an effort to sabotage our attempts
to take human consciousness on this planet another major step
The modern struggle between the Theocrats and the Invisible College
over the recreational and other uses of psychoactive drugs started
long before the Sixties; and the drug then involved was alcohol.
real reason that the Prohibition Amendment passed after World War I
is that we suddenly stopped opposing the anti-alcohol movement that
Theocratic Fundamentalists had been leading for decades.
In other words, we decided,
"Let the Christian Temperance Union and
the other prohibitionist organizations have their way; maybe total
prohibition of alcoholic beverages will fail so miserably that it
will convince the majority of Americans that puritanical laws
regulating intimate details of the personal lives of individuals are
a bad idea."
And our plan worked.
Government policy and general opinion in this society are now
treating alcoholism more as a medical and psychiatric problem than
as a moral or criminal problem.
This is actually a significant step
forward for the whole civilization: learning how to deal with a
social problem to minimize the total harm it does to the society.
Q. I've always found it inexplicable that Western society can deal
with the alcohol problem in a reasonably sensible and sophisticated
manner, but not with problems caused by drugs other than alcohol.
A. This is happening because the drug controversy is now one of the
two or three most important battlegrounds between the Theocrats and
the Invisible College.
The key to understanding why involves certain
side effects of LSD and various psychedelic drugs closely related to
it: mescaline, psilocybin, etc., in both their pure and their
Q. I was right at the heart of the Psychedelics Movement in the
Sixties and Seventies, but I never really figured out what was going
on. Obviously, the Invisible College was urging large numbers of
people to take these drugs, seemingly indiscriminately; but I never
found out why. In fact, I often got angry with you for trying to
"turn on the world" to LSD, seemingly with little regard for the
Occultists have used powerful psychedelic drugs of this family for
centuries as aids to psychic development, but always with a great
deal of caution and respect. Only occultists at a reasonable level
of advancement were supposed to take them; their use was denied to
the really immature and unstable.
Also, occultists have always
taught that psychedelics use was should be combined with other
psychic training techniques, to maximize the benefits and minimize
However, when I tried to teach these methods of psychedelics use in
the context of the Sixties counterculture, I found that very few
members of the movement had the patience for such a conservative
Practically everybody just said,
"I'm going to keep on
dropping acid until I get rid of my hangups and expand my mind, and
then I'll worry about all this stuff about meditation and psychic
And I was aware why so many people felt this way: at
this stage of my psychic development, I was beginning to become
consciously aware of your telepathic messages advocating
indiscriminate use of LSD and similar drugs.
Quite frankly, I
disapproved of this policy, because I saw so many people hurt
themselves with irresponsible drug-use.
A. You are aware by now, aren't you, that most of the people who
experienced "acid freakouts" during the Sixties didn't suffer
significant permanent damage?
Q. This seems to be true on the average, yes. Also, I'm now mature
enough to realize that a lot of the drug-users in the Sixties
Movement who killed themselves, committed serious crimes, or became
insane enough to be institutionalized, would probably have done
something similar sooner or later anyway, even if they'd never used
A. True. This was a significant factor in our decision to take the
risk of starting the Psychedelics Movement.
We still have to admit
that there were casualties, though, and we're sorry about it.
However, we have to point out once again that a war is being fought
and it's your freedom, that of the entire human race, that's at
Q. I understand all this by now, though I'm not sure how many of my
readers will. Well, there's nothing I can do about this except tell
as much as I can of the facts and let people make up their own minds
about who's right and wrong. What I'd most like to know about the
whole drug question is simply what the Sixties Psychedelic Movement
was for. What, exactly, were you trying to accomplish, and did it
A. The answer to your second question is,
"Yes, fairly well. Better
than our expectations."
The answer to the first is technical and
almost impossible to describe in English, but we'll try. Since you,
and probably a significant number of your readers, are familiar with
electronic computers, we will use computer terminology for our
First, you have to realize that a normal state of consciousness is
comparable to a computer program that's already running in an input
or output mode instead of a command mode. In an input mode, you can
enter data into the files of the computer to be stored or processed.
In an output mode, you can retrieve information that's already been
processed, and print it out or make some other use of it. On most
modern computers, you can switch between these two modes very
easily, and this analogy seems to apply to the mind as well.
The input mode of normal consciousness consists of receiving
information through the senses and entering it into the memory,
where it is processed in various ways and is available for later
retrieval. The output mode consists of making use of data that the
mind has already processed to feel emotions, think, speak, listen,
move the body, and perform a wide variety of other activities.
whole thing is much more complex and sophisticated than anything
conceivable for electronic computers, even in theory, but the
analogy should be clear.
However, you can't modify the program that's running on an
electronic computer set to an input or output mode. In order to do
that, you'd have to enter some kind of command mode.
Q. As an example, before I typed this paragraph, I entered the
command mode of this word processing program and changed the margins
for this one paragraph. But now I'm back in the input mode to write
A. When this analogy is applied to states of consciousness in the
human mind, you have to realize that the situation is very complex.
On one level, you feel that you have a great deal of free will, a
large measure of control over what you think and do and even over
how you react emotionally. This is simply because you are aware of a
large number of different alternative courses of action open to you
at any given time.
You are much less aware of those alternatives that are not open to
you. For example, large areas of your total memory are not available
to conscious access at any particular time. Like many electronic
computers, the human mind arranges memories in banks, and you
normally have access to only a few of these at any one time.
change banks by an act of conscious will, but this often loses you
access to information you could recall easily before, from the other
memory bank. In addition, there's the subconscious, which contains
memories that are very rarely available for conscious access.
Q. It also appears to me that normal consciousness includes at least
limited command functions: for example, deliberately "putting
yourself in a mood" to do a particular thing that you couldn't do
without advance concentration and preparation. This may be analogous
to certain capabilities on this word processing program: for
example, I don't have to leave the input mode to PRINT IN ALL CAPS
or to underline.
A. Yes, but you can't change the line-length except by going into a
command mode, as you did above.
Now the point we're trying to make
here is that LSD and related psychedelic drugs create a state of
consciousness that is similar to putting a computer into a command
mode and making changes in the program that is being run.
Q. This brings us back to my original objections to your advocacy of
indiscriminate use of powerful psychedelics during the Sixties.
Going into a command mode on a computer is useless, and usually
detrimental to finishing the job at hand, unless you know exactly
what you're doing. For example, the command mode I entered to change
the margins could also have been used to delete the whole file I'm
working on, and that could have been done by pushing only two keys.
A. Fortunately, the very complexity of the human mind makes it much
less vulnerable than that.
What actually happened when the average
person in the Sixties Psychedelics Movement took LSD wasn't the same
as the limited work with entering a "command mode" and doing
deliberate mental reprogramming that Western occultists have
traditionally done when they used psychedelics.
It operated on a
level unknown to the occultists.
In other words, you yourself, and all the people you considered
serious occultists, underwent the same involuntary mental changes as
the "street hippies" did because of taking LSD.
your limited psychic training goals, while they did nothing but "sit
and groove"; but the drug itself was doing something much more
fundamental to every one of you, every time you took it.
Q. I'd already guessed most of this, but it's still a little
disturbing to see it put into words. Exactly what changes are you
talking about, and how do they relate to the analogy about command
A. Well, the computer you are using to write this book has several
different levels of command modes, doesn't it?
Q. Yes. For example, the lowest level is the one I used to change
the margins. Beyond that is another level at which I could enter
another application entirely, such as creating and sorting data in
an address file. Beyond that, I could write a program in Basic or
Assembly Language and create a word-processing file similar to this
one, but with whatever modifications we desired.
And beyond that, I
could write or install a Machine Language program that would change
the computer's capabilities for writing new programs, including
teaching it an entirely different computer language.
A. OK. By this analogy, the traditional use of psychedelics by
occultists is on the level of writing a Basic program.
people learn to use telepathy and other psychic powers: they
actually write a new program, but to do so, they use capabilities
already present in their mind all along, as your computer has the
Basic programming language among its files.
Q. This explains why psychedelics are not essential to psychic
training. They can speed up the process under the right
circumstances, but they don't seem to be able to give a specific
psychic talent to just anybody. There are large numbers of otherwise
intelligent and creative people who simply can't learn to become
telepaths or mediums, for example, with or without taking drugs.
the other hand, a lot of experienced occult teachers who dislike
drugs assert that they can accomplish exactly the same degree of
psychic training for a given person without using drugs as could be
accomplished with them; it would just take longer.
I tend to agree
with them in general, though I still fall into the "pro" rather than
the "anti" camp of occultists when it comes to psychedelic drugs as
a psychic training aid.
A. The real reason we advocated widespread use of LSD in the Sixties
had nothing to do with the short-term effects of the drug, or with
conscious use of those effects for psychic training.
To get back to
the computer-language analogy we've been using, the "mind-expansion
through LSD" that we were advocating involved a Machine Language
program, not merely a Basic program.
Repeated use of LSD over several years makes fundamental changes in
people's mental programming, and we used LSD plus direct telepathic
conditioning techniques to significantly reprogram the minds of
several million Americans.
We also used environmental conditioning
through the general emotional climate of the Sixties counterculture
itself, as expressed in its art, music, slogans, etc.
Q. To tell the truth, I found all that stuff about "Peace and Love
and Flower Children and Dropping Out and Everything Should Be Free"
to be naive and impractical at best, and at worst to be
A. You felt this way because you already had high ideals and were
concerned mostly with trying to put them into practice.
the emotional atmosphere you find naive and self-destructive simply
to teach a certain amount of idealism to young people who had been
raised in average Fifties American homes that almost completely
Throughout their childhoods, they had been taught to
value various shallow forms of material success more than anything
else. We were trying to push them in the right direction, and
advocating widespread use of the powerful psychedelics was our
principal means of doing so.
Q. How did the reprogramming that you carried out through the
Sixties counterculture and psychedelics movement compare in
effectiveness with that accomplished through religious mind control
by Theocratic religious groups?
A. There is a tremendous difference, roughly that between doing
something using a high level of technology and doing it by human
muscle power, with the psychedelic drug being analogous to the
We did more reprogramming in a few years on more people
than the traditional religious Theocrats do in the same number of
Unfortunately, the Fifth-stage Theocrats now have access to
mental reprogramming techniques just as effective as those we used
in the Sixties; but this is a subject we'll discuss later.
Q. Well then, why did you stop? Why didn't you let the Sixties
Movement continue indefinitely? I realize that you would have had to
make the material you were using to reprogram people much more
complex, but wouldn't this have happened naturally as they matured
and gained in knowledge and experience?
A. No, it doesn't work that way, unfortunately. It was extremely
difficult just to program large numbers of LSD users with a set of
vague idealistic principles that would make their opinion-forming
and decision-making processes more tolerant and flexible. It was
totally impossible to start teaching a detailed, sophisticated
The major reason for this is that we were working almost entirely
through people's subconscious minds, so that they were absorbing
short strings of data at random places in their mental files.
long as these messages were simple, clear, and positive - and it's
this that made you call them "naive" - then they did more good than
harm. If we'd tried using more complex material, it would have
merely confused the recipients, probably to the point of interfering
with ordinary mental functions.
In fact, most people in the Sixties
counterculture suffered temporarily from a significant degree of
this kind of confusion and impairment anyway.
Q. OK. I'm pretty sure I understand now. You were only trying to
reprogram as many Americans as possible with some vague principles
that would make them more socially and politically liberal, on a
very fundamental level. Even before I made the breakthrough, I was
aware that something like this had happened.
A. At this point, let us end the discussion of drugs and go on to
other aspects of the War in Heaven that mark the beginning of a new
age of human civilization on Earth.
The Aquarian Age
Q. I've never believed in astrology, so I've always felt a little
uncomfortable using terms like "Aquarian Age." Why did you let it
get started in the first place?
A. We had nothing to do with putting this term into common use.
However, once large numbers of people started using it entirely on
their own, we invented our own mythology around the rudiments of the
Aquarian Age story and have been transmitting it telepathically into
the subconscious minds of many different people. It now appears in
messages channeled to the New Agers, in popular song lyrics, and
many different places in fiction and poetry.
First, here's the basic astrological myth about the Aquarian Age.
The Age just ending was called the Piscean Age, after the
constellation of Pisces, the Fishes. It's an appropriate name,
because this was the Age of Christianity, which has the fish as one
of its symbols because in the Greek that the early Christians spoke,
the word for "fish" is also an acronym for the phrase "Jesus, the
Anointed One, God's Son, the Savior."
And the Age just beginning is
called the Aquarian Age after the constellation of Aquarius, which
represents a human being pouring water out of a jar.
Now, here's our supplemental mythology about the Aquarian Age, which
centers on the concept of "water." In this context, Water symbolizes
spiritual power. During the Piscean Age, the human race on Earth
resembled an enormous school of fish: they were utterly dependent on
the water, and had very little control over it. They simply lived in
it and hoped to survive.
The New Age symbol is the human being taking control of the water,
which also represents spiritual power. However, if you take a closer
look at the astronomical mythology represented by the
constellations, you'll see that the water poured out by the Water
Carrier is the source of the great celestial river, the
constellation Eridanus which runs from the celestial equator far
down in the southern sky.
This huge outpouring of spiritual power
represents several things we'll cover in Part Three: the apocalyptic
events that will free the human race on this planet from Theocracy,
and the birth of new gods.
Q. It's details like this that I need for the book, even if they're
not directly connected to the point being discussed: they prove that
there's an external creative intelligence behind many of the
intuitive flashes that inspire people to create modern mythologies.
A. Another example concerns several modern
UFO researchers who
received telepathic communications containing words in an unknown
language from sources that identified themselves as "space people."
Occultists later identified the words as belonging to the "Enochian"
language. Over three hundred years ago, the English occultist
Dee received a long series of channeled messages in this language,
and occultists still study it today.
The reason we telepathically transmitted Enochian words like "affa" - meaning, very appropriately, "nothing" - to the Ufologists was to
steer their thinking in certain direction.
We knew that if they
published these words or repeated them very much, someone with
occult knowledge would tell them where they came from.
It was just
another way of supplying evidence that there is a connection between
what modern Ufologists call telepathic contact with space people,
and the mediumistic communication with spirits that occultists have
been practicing throughout history.
Even with evidence like this to guide them, most of the Ufologists
We keep telling them,
"The Invisible College is
composed of disembodied spirits. We're dead people, not living
beings from other planets. Some of us are extraterrestrials, yes,
but we're extraterrestrial spirits, not living people."
telling them this whenever we are in telepathic contact, and they
keep right on theorizing about interstellar space travel and other
Next, let us tell you about the so-called "Sirius Connection," which
you mentioned in Part One without ever quite figuring out what we
were doing. This was a complicated ploy of exactly the same type as
the one we just mentioned.
We started sending telepathic messages
like "Sirius is very important" when we found out that news of the
explicit astronomical knowledge about the invisible companion of
Sirius in the Sudanese
Dogon Tribe's mythology was about to surface.
In the early Seventies, when we started sending such messages, the
same information that later appeared in
The Sirius Mystery was
already known to certain anthropologists and members of the occult
and UFO communities, especially French speaking ones.
information is extremely impressive, because it contains the period
of revolution of the companion around the larger star and the fact
that this companion star is composed of super-dense matter.
information contains enough detail to make coincidence unlikely, and
there is evidence that the Dogon possessed it before Western
Q. When I first read The Sirius Mystery, I tended to dismiss the
whole thing as a hoax by the Dogon. I speculated that some of them
had heard the astronomical information about Sirius from some
passing trader only a few years before they told it to the
anthropologists. A lot of the traders in that area were Arabs, and
amateur astronomy has always been popular hobby in the Arab culture.
A. No, the Dogon got the information centuries ago. They may or may
not have gotten it second-hand from the ancient Egyptians, but they
This and many other pieces of advanced astronomical and
astrophysical information have been in circulation among free
spirits for thousands of years.
Q. I begin to get the point. You sent out telepathic messages about
Sirius to get the materialists like Wilson, Leary, and various
Ufologists to listen to you, knowing they'd encounter the
information quite soon. I assume you knew in advance that The Sirius
Mystery was being written.
A. It's more complicated than that. If we hadn't started the
telepathic communications, several of these people would have
accepted the information about Sirius and the Dogon as hard proof of
physical visitations to Earth by
As it was, we
complicated the issue in their minds, and may have kept them from
seriously misleading the significant number of people who regard
their opinions as authoritative.
Q. When you say, "complicated the issue," are you talking about R.A.
Wilson's making a connection between the modern Sirius Mystery and
the "Great Star" legends of the Masons, Rosicrucians, and various
A. Yes, the "Great Star" is also the "Great Secret": a version of
the truth about Theocracy.
This same symbolism is also being used by
a number of different factions of spirits and living people involved
in the psychic warfare to be described in Part Three. For example,
some of then call themselves "cats" or "lions" and refer to certain
other types of spirits as "dogs" or "Sirians."
These terms refer to
different details of the physiology of the astral soul, and there
are spirits of each type in the service of both the Theocrats and
the Invisible College.
Q. I also see another possible tie-in here. Ever since
books, he's had a following composed mostly
of counterculture people who publish underground magazines devoted
to discussing his work, and to similar material by Leary, Burroughs,
Some of these people were part of the Sixties LSD movement at
the time when the media were full of anti-drug propaganda claiming
that LSD damaged the chromosomes, and that the children of everyone
who used it would be born deformed or mutated. My own opinion at the
time was not to take these claims seriously, because they were
supported by insufficient evidence - and history seems to have
proven me right.
The assertion that LSD causes physical mutations seems to be
entirely false. But this didn't stop certain members of the Sixties
counterculture from taking this "mutation" propaganda and turning it
In other words, they admitted that LSD causes
mutations, and not in the descendants of the people who take the
drug, but in the users themselves. And of course they claimed that
these mutations were extremely beneficial, turning acidheads into
Now, I had enough scientific knowledge and plain common sense to
dismiss these claims as obvious nonsense, typical of the alternating
delusions of persecution and grandeur so common in the
counterculture at the time. And, on the purely physical level,
nothing has happened since to convince me that my snap judgment was
However, the belief that acidheads are mutants in a literal,
physical sense and therefore superior to ordinary people has never
died out within the counterculture. It seems commoner in the
counter-culture today than it was in the Sixties.
Is the Invisible
College responsible for this?
A. Yes. Some of the people who are going to read this book and other
explicit writings about the War in Heaven, and who are going to make
the breakthrough and join the movement to teach others the truth
about the nature of spiritual reality, are going to describe
themselves as "mutants" of this type.
Q. Personally, I feel more like an alien than a mutant. I have
past-life memories set on other worlds, and I really don't feel
comfortable in any cultural group on this planet.
A. This is because you're here to help in the building of an
entirely new and more advanced civilization on Earth. And a large
number of the people who call themselves mutants are also of
That's another thing you'll want to
concentrate on in your future writings' helping these people realize
who they are, and what they're on this planet to do.
Q. Here's a question I asked before and didn't get answered. I'll
try to ask it again, because it pertains directly to the subject of
mutants. During the Sixties,
Timothy Leary often said that LSD helps
people unlock cosmic secrets that are encoded in our DNA; and at the
time, I found this concept completely incomprehensible. But he's
still saying the same thing today.
For example, he said in
Neurologic just a few years ago that,
"Most of the characteristics
formerly attributed to the soul now describe the functions of DNA,
whose complex messages originate from higher intelligences in other
The mission of DNA is to evolve nervous systems
able to escape from the doomed planet and contact manifestations of
the same amino-acid seeding that have evolved in other solar
What is the relationship between the concept in this
quotation, the acid mutants, and the cosmology that you've already
A. First of all, there was never a
physical seeding of amino acids
to start organic life.
What actually happened was that disembodied
spirits went to planets that were ready for life to develop, and
created the amino acids by telekinetic manipulation of existing
They assembled these amino acids into physical
DNA using their own astral DNA molecules as templates.
When Leary and other scientists theorize that the physical DNA
contains an evolutionary program that automatically causes new
species to develop, they are slightly misinterpreting messages that
we put in their subconscious minds.
What we are actually trying to
tell them is that evolution is guided by the psychic manipulations
of disembodied spirits, but most such scientists are still too
materialistic to accept such an explanation.
Their conscious minds
are unwilling to admit the literal existence of the soul and other
spiritual phenomena, so they try to stretch theories from physical
science to fit the evidence they discover. This sometimes causes
non-scientists who read their works to engage in speculations about
evolution and mutation that stray very far from reality.
What we're really telling all these people is simply,
develop conscious control over your psychic powers during your
present lifetime, so you'll have a better chance of surviving after
LSD and other psychedelic drugs are a dangerous but useful
tool for doing this, and so are many psychic training practices
derived from occultism and religion.
We do want people to evolve;
but the evolution is spiritual, not physical.
However, there's a lot more to the War in Heaven than just a
struggle between the Invisible College and the Theocratic spirits
who operate through organized religion and try to retard material
progress towards an advanced civilization on this planet.
last five years, as this book was being written, the power of the
religious Theocrats to influence the evolution of Western society
has steadily declined, but that does not mean this Spiritual
Revolution is going to be quick, easy, or bloodless.
What's actually been going on during the last twenty years is that
the Theocrats are preparing to achieve their final goal.
recorded history, the Theocrats have falsely pretended to be gods.
Now, because of the Earth's extremely high and unstable population,
they actually have a chance to assume godlike powers.
This is what
the War in Heaven is really all about, and this what we will
describe in Part Three.
