The Psychonaut Field Manual

A post by eisegesis at ATS.
WARNING: This thread is for educational purposes only.
This manual is “theology free” and explains how to “hack” one’s mind. It’s a great introduction for beginners and those interested in esoteric mysticism. It’s written in plain language and the art style is similar to that of Gorillaz co-creator, Jamie Hewlett.

Regardless of your beliefs, DO NOT attempt to practice the more advanced techniques without fully understanding the consequences. Irreversible hallucinations, damage to the nervous system, outright madness and permanent disorder are all VERY REAL dangers.

Attempt at your own risk!!

The ‘mysteries’ of CERN.

Here’s an interesting post by  Joneselius at ATS in this post he said  ……  ” a thread on the strange things about CERN, and some recent events that I find rather troubling.

The ULO! I made a thread a while back where I discussed an object that was said to be ‘lying’ in one of the compression tubes on the LHC. I sent 3 e-mails to various scientists at CERN to clarify what they meant when they used the term “lying object”. I did not receive a reply form anyone at CERN. Here’s the original snippet, with the guy I e-mailed being quoted.

“It will take only one significant deviation in the data to change everything,” De Roeck said. “The upgraded machine works. Now we have to get to the real operation for physics.” But work remains to be done. One issue the accelerator physicists remain cautiously aware of, he said, is an “Unidentified Lying Object” in the beam pipe of the LHC’s 17-mile underground tunnel, a vacuum tube where proton beams collide and scatter particles that scientists then analyze for keys to unlock the mysteries of the Big Bang and the cosmos.”

He did not respond. It’s a shame because the ULO is STILL there. I’m starting to think it’s more than we’re being led to believe. Like some kind of dormant entity or something that, as long as it’s not disturbed, wont be a problem for them. Or maybe it’s a screw? Why not just clarify this with me though? Weird.

The Ritual
Now I’m sure we’ve all seen this video but I’m posting it anyway as the story behind it simply doesn’t add up.

Assume this is organized and a fake. Those people doing the ritual HAVE to be scientists/employees as you need a security clearance to get into that courtyard.. I feel there is some sort of creepy legitimacy to this video. Why even fake this, no one’s around or capable of access. WHO are they ‘faking’ it for? It just doesn’t add up to me at all, also, who finds mock human sacrifices funny?

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin This is VERY strange indeed, and if true, should awaken most Christians as to how dire the situation has become over there at both CERN and Bilderberg.

(For some reason I can’t get link to work!) The video
This is NOT confirmed, but if it is then holy hell.
The meaning of the message is “You have been weighed and found wanting”. Imagine hearing that from God. Wow.

The drowned scientists.

At around 1 a.m. on Sunday, April 26th, two doctoral students at the Louisiana State University (LSU) were mysteriously found dead at the bottom of a local swimming pool. 28-year-old I#a Maity and 25-year-old Anton Joe were with the schools physics and astronomy department with Maity studying theoretical astrophysics while Anton was a 3rd-year graduate student studying theoretical gravity. Maity was an author of one of the journal ‘New Astronomy’s’ most popular recent papers entitled “Black hole spin dependence of general relativistic multi-transonic accretion close to the (event) horizon”; Joes’ most recent paper was called “Kantowski-Sachs spacetime in loop quantum cosmology: bounds on expansion and shear scalars and the viability of quantization prescriptions.” Over a year ago, Joe uploaded a paper to Academia.edu called ‘Search For Three-Jet Resonances in pp Collisions at s+7TeV’, the paper was written for the European Organization For Nuclear Research, also known as CERN.

Back on March 20, 2015, Susan Duclos wrote a story in which members of the scientific community talked about CERN and the possibility of it creating black holes and parallel universes, warnings not given by ‘conspiracy theorists’ but experts, members of the same fields of study as I#a Maity and Anton Joe, warnings that we should all be concerned about as we do all live upon the same planet. Did Maity and/or Joe discover something that they were not supposed to know which led to their mysterious deaths? Both of them were considered stunningly intelligent with brilliant minds.

How strange that two men, who could have spoken out about black holes being formed, in a much smarter way then we could, instead drowning in a pool? I find this incredibly hard to believe, people of ‘stunning intellect’ seldom jump in pools if they’re proficient at swimming.

Oh Hi Apollo
The town in France where CERN is partially situated is called “Saint-Genus-Poilly.” The name Pouilly comes from the Latin “Appolliacum” and it is believed that in Roman times a temple existed in honor of Apollo, and the people who lived there believed that it is a gateway to the underworld. It is interesting to note that CERN is built on the same spot.

Religious leaders – always suspicious of the aims of the scientific world – drew a connection to a verse straight out of Revelations (9:1-2, 11), which makes reference to the name ‘Apollyon.’ The verse states: “To him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit… And they had a kind over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”

Again, just ANOTHER strange coincidence right? I mean, it’s not like anything else strange has happened here right?

WHY THAT NAME!?
This brings us to the name CERN itself. Cern is actually just short for Cernunnos who was the Celtic horned god of the underworld.
Why, oh why, would you choose a name that forms the acronym of the God of the underworld? They also have Shiva outside their center, the God of destruction.

I believe that CERN are hiding their true intent from the people, and they’re keeping all the aspects of their experimentation completely compartmentalized from one another to hide their true intent.
I truly believe that CERN is seeking, desperately to open a doorway and look into another dimension, if not invite something into ours, even if it’s tiny.
The use use of SO MUCH religiously orientated language and symbology at CERN leads me to believe that the people who run CERN have a spiritual motive for doing so. They focus on the ‘destructive’ aspect a LOT. Also, the ritualistic nature of CERN is utterly counter intuitive to a scientific mind – for the most part – and yet this is not questioned. ”

Replies on this thread of note:

Caver78 –

CERN is an acronym for

Organisation Européenne pour la Recherche Nucléaire (renamed from Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, but acronym was retained)

www.google.com… .0….0…1.1.64.psy-ab..0.14.2328.0..0i131k1j0i67k1.lr58_QJmkFs

It’s from the French name for the facility, not Cernunnos who IIRC is also an aspect of the Green Man. The Celtic horned god of fertility, animals and the underworld.

As to what they are doing at Cern? Firstly they are using one heck of a lot of electricity. Secondly Research and the collider is used to smash particles. Not so much to make particles at least that’s my understanding. Last I heard they also have been having QUITE a time with rodents getting in and chewing wiring. Which I found hilarious.

It’s unfortunate about those two students, I don’t believe for an instant there are any rituals going on but I do think we don’t understand most of the experiments being run not because of nefarious reasons but I’m guessing there are about 100 people on the planet that DO understand things at that level.

I’m not one of them. Most people aren’t.

Will give you a bigger thing to freak about, a few years back in Iceland I believe? They were going to drill into the magma core and try to tap it for geothermal energy. Anyone here think once they pop that pimple they’d be able to contain it? Nope…didn’t think so!

There are way more scarier things to worry about than CERN.

Currently Elon Musk is bloviating about running his tube thingy eventually to the east coast. Wanna bet that’s going to play the devil running under fracking areas and create mayhem? Just saying’

Disturbinatti –

Your op is long so before I forget…

Appollyon is the Greek rendering of Abbadon. I don’t know why it’s Appollyon in Revelation as Abbad and Appollo aren’t equal in translation. Abba-don is probably a city like Har Meggido is a geographical location people assume means the end of the world or Armageddon.

Abba is Father, don is probably a reference to Dan.

Isn’t Dan unmentioned in the list of 12 tribes?

Abba-don is probably the Father(s) of Dan.

Abbad-on, on the other hand, I don’t know what would mean. Probably it’s Ava as Vav gets transliterated to B often (Ya’akov to Jacob).

City of Abbad? I should know this, too.

CERN is a creepy place. Whatever they say they are doing is the least to be concerned about, what they don’t is problematic.

They are playing God trying to recreate a miniature (theoretical) big bang?

I doubt that. It’s theory, people just believe it is true like a religous person believes in God, but with less evidence. Ex Nihilo is an impossible way to explain creation unless God exists and caused it.

Otherwise nothing would have remained nothing. It was long before Europeans took credit for saying ever action has a reaction of proper proportion that it was actually said, but who said it isn’t important.

That it’s true is.

Likewise every action has a cause, every cause a First Cause called God in religion, unless you have a demiurgic belief system, either way…

There is nothing to be gained from trying to recreate a theoretical explanation of existence. Something else is going on.

The footage was obviously leaked as a distraction from what is actually going on, they always leak b.s. to cover up seriously effed up ish.

Like the story they are trying to free the Watchers and Rephaim from their subterranean prison and habitat. The Rephaim are as old as Ugaritic mythology, Canaanite/Phoenician/Carthaginian and Hebrew/Semitic legends of old all have this belief that giants dwell in the earth. Rephaim that is.

The Messiah ben Ephraim might really be an anagram for the Messiah ben Rephaim as Ephraim is plural, unusual for a man’s name.

Re/a means evil in Hebrew. Resh(R) with an Aleph spelled out “Resha” means wicked.

Anyway it’s a matter of moving one letter and the 2 Messiah thing is shady sounding as they say one will be killed by Armilus, son of Satan/Samael, ressurected by ben David or “King Maschiach.”

Sorry I don’t know ish about science, but religion I do. I am going to look up Abbadon.

Disturbinatti –

Regarding the name, “CERN.”

Just speculating but I believe as A/E are the same in Hebrew that it could an occult meaning that is for (in)CARN(ate)…

Like they are trying to incarnate something demonic or RE(evil in Hebrew)inCARNate.

CERN is Evil, RA inCARNate.

Interesting information…

Abbadon IS a place in the Tanakh, meaning place of destruction and is usually mentioned with Sheol, the pit of destruction would be Abbadon, a place in Sheol, also Gehenom is mentioned, these are the bad places.

Must be due to misunderstanding of some sort that Abbadon is considered a name for an angel in Revelation 9:11, the destroying angel.

Hmm…. Appollyon. N Apolean…

Strange coincidence their. Napoli-on.

I wonder if Naples/Napoli is Abbadon! It looks like it could be hell!

Joneselius –

Indeed it does.

It does say the angel was given the ‘key’ to the bottomless pit.

Could this be CERN?

This concise work on ‘The Hermetic Philosophy’ outlines seven universal principles: Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause and Effect, and Gender. Rather than the actual Kybalion, this is purportedly an exegesis on that text. While this was probably one of the books which William Walker Atikinson wrote for the Yogi Publication Society under a pseudonym, it probably bears a closer read than most.

THE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES

“The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these,
understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose
touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.”–The Kybalion.

The Seven Hermetic Principles, upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy is based, are as follows:

1. The Principle of Mentalism.
2. The Principle of Correspondence.
3. The Principle of Vibration.
4. The Principle of Polarity.
5. The Principle of Rhythm.
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect.
7. The Principle of Gender.

These Seven Principles will be discussed and explained as we proceed with these lessons. A short explanation of each, however, may as well be given at this point.

1. The Principle of Mentalism

“THE ALL IS MIND; The Universe is Mental.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “All is Mind.” It explains that THE ALL (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of “The Material Universe”; the “Phenomena of Life”; “Matter”; “Energy”; and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is SPIRIT which in itself is UNKNOWABLE and UNDEFINABLE, but which may be considered and thought of as AN UNIVERSAL, INFINITE, LIVING MIND. It also explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of THE ALL, subject to the Laws of Created Things, and that the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of THE ALL, in which Mind we “live and move and have our being.” This Principle, by establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, easily explains all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and which, without such explanation, are non-understandable and defy scientific treatment. An understanding of this great Hermetic Principle of Mentalism enables the individual to readily grasp the laws of the Mental Universe, and to apply the same to his well-being and advancement. The Hermetic Student is enabled to apply intelligently the great Mental Laws, instead of using them in a haphazard manner. With the Master-Key in his possession, the student may unlock the many doors of the mental and psychic temple of knowledge, and enter the same freely and intelligently. This Principle explains the true nature of “Energy,” “Power,” and “Matter,” and why and how all these are subordinate to the Mastery of Mind. One of the old Hermetic Masters wrote, long ages ago: “He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery.” And these words are as true today as at the time they were first written. Without this Master-Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple.

2. The Principle of Correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that there is always a Correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of Being and Life. The old Hermetic axiom ran in these words: “As above, so below; as below, so above.” And the grasping of this Principle gives one the means of solving many a dark paradox, and hidden secret of Nature. There are planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the Principle of Correspondence to them we are able to understand much that would otherwise be unknowable to us. This Principle is of universal application and manifestation, on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe–it is an Universal Law. The ancient Hermetists considered this Principle as one of the most important mental instruments by which man was able to pry aside the obstacles which hid from view the Unknown. Its use even tore aside the Veil of Isis to the extent that a glimpse of the face of the goddess might be caught. Just as a knowledge of the Principles of Geometry enables man to measure distant suns and their movements, while seated in his observatory, so a knowledge of the Principle of Correspondence enables Man to reason intelligently from the Known to the Unknown. Studying the monad, he understands the archangel.

3. The Principle of Vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”–The
Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “everything is in motion”; “everything vibrates”; “nothing is at rest”; facts which Modern Science endorses, and which each new scientific discovery tends to verify. And yet this Hermetic Principle was enunciated thousands of years ago, by the Masters of Ancient Egypt. This Principle explains that the differences between different manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration. From THE ALL, which is Pure Spirit, down to the grossest form of Matter, all is in vibration–the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the scale. The vibration of Spirit is at such an infinite rate of intensity and rapidity that it is practically at rest–just as a rapidly moving wheel seems to be motionless. And at the other end of the scale, there are gross forms of matter whose vibrations are so low as to seem at rest. Between these poles, there are millions upon millions of varying degrees of vibration. From corpuscle and electron, atom and molecule, to worlds and universes, everything is in vibratory motion. This is also true on the planes of energy and force (which are but varying degrees of vibration); and also on the mental planes (whose states depend upon vibrations); and even on to the spiritual planes. An understanding of this Principle, with the appropriate formulas, enables Hermetic students to control their own mental vibrations as well as those of others. The Masters also apply this Principle to the conquering of Natural phenomena, in various ways. “He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the scepter of power,” says one of the old writers.

4. The Principle of Polarity

“Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its
pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are
identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet;
all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be
reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “everything is dual”; “everything has two poles”; “everything has its pair of opposites,” all of which were old Hermetic axioms. It explains the old paradoxes, that have perplexed so many, which have been stated as follows: “Thesis and antithesis are identical in nature, but different in degree”; “opposites are the same, differing only in degree”; “the pairs of opposites may be reconciled”; “extremes meet”; “everything is and isn’t, at the same time”; “all truths are but half-truths”; “every truth is half-false”; “there are two sides to everything,” etc., etc., etc. It explains that in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that “opposites” are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although “opposites,” are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing. Look at your thermometer and see if you can discover where “heat” terminates and “cold” begins! There is no such thing as “absolute heat” or “absolute cold”–the two terms “heat” and “cold” simply indicate varying degrees of the same thing, and that “same thing” which manifests as “heat” and “cold” is merely a form, variety, and rate of Vibration. So “heat” and “cold” are simply the “two poles” of that which we call “Heat”–and the phenomena attendant thereupon are manifestations of the Principle of Polarity. The same Principle manifests in the case of “Light and Darkness,” which are the same thing, the difference consisting of varying degrees between the two poles of the phenomena. Where does “darkness” leave off, and “light” begin? What is the difference between “Large and Small”? Between “Hard and Soft”? Between “Black and White”? Between “Sharp and Dull”? Between “Noise and Quiet”? Between “High and Low”? Between “Positive and Negative”? The Principle of Polarity explains these paradoxes, and no other Principle can supersede it. The same Principle operates on the Mental Plane. Let us take a radical and extreme example–that of “Love and Hate,” two mental states apparently totally different. And yet there are degrees of Hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms “Like or Dislike,” which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we “like” or “dislike” or “neither.” And all are simply degrees of the same thing, as you will see if you will but think a moment. And, more than this (and considered of more importance by the Hermetists), it is possible to change the vibrations of Hate to the vibrations of Love, in one’s own mind, and in the minds of others. Many of you, who read these lines, have had personal experiences of the involuntary rapid transition from Love to Hate, and the reverse, in your own case and that of others. And you will therefore realize the possibility of this being accomplished by the use of the Will, by means of the Hermetic formulas. “Good and Evil” are but the poles of the same thing, and the Hermetist understands the art of transmuting Evil into Good, by means of an application of the Principle of Polarity. In short, the “Art of Polarization” becomes a phase of “Mental Alchemy” known and practiced by the ancient and modern Hermetic Masters. An understanding of the Principle will enable one to change his own Polarity, as well as that of others, if he will devote the time and study necessary to master the art.

5. The Principle of Rhythm

“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”–The
Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, to and fro; a flow and inflow; a swing backward and forward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and low-tide; between the two poles which exist in accordance with the Principle of Polarity described a moment ago. There is always an action and a reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking. This is in the affairs of the Universe, suns, worlds, men, animals, mind, energy, and matter. This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man (and it is with this latter that the Hermetists find the understanding of the Principle most important). The Hermetists have grasped this Principle, finding its universal application, and have also discovered certain means to overcome its effects in themselves by the use of the appropriate formulas and methods. They apply the Mental Law of Neutralization. They cannot annul the Principle, or cause it to cease its operation, but they have learned how to escape its effects upon themselves to a certain degree depending upon the Mastery of the Principle. They have learned how to USE it, instead of being USED BY it. In this and similar methods, consist the Art of the Hermetists. The Master of Hermetics polarizes himself at the point at which he desires to rest, and then neutralizes the Rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the other pole. All individuals who have attained any degree of Self-Mastery do this to a certain degree, more or less unconsciously, but the Master does this consciously, and by the use of his Will, and attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of the masses who are swung backward and forward like a pendulum. This Principle and that of Polarity have been closely studied by the Hermetists, and the methods of counteracting, neutralizing, and USING them form an important part of the Hermetic Mental Alchemy.

6. The Principle of Cause and Effect

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name
for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation,
but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the fact that there is a Cause for every Effect; an Effect from every Cause. It explains that: “Everything Happens according to Law”; that nothing ever “merely happens”; that there is no such thing as Chance; that while there are various planes of Cause and Effect, the higher dominating the lower planes, still nothing ever entirely escapes the Law. The Hermetists understand the art and methods of rising above the ordinary plane of Cause and Effect, to a certain degree, and by mentally rising to a higher plane they become Causers instead of Effects. The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life. But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominate their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns. They help to PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment. They USE the Principle instead of being its tools. The Masters obey the Causation of the higher planes, but they help to RULE on their own plane. In this statement there is condensed a wealth of Hermetic knowledge–let him read who can.

7. The Principle of Gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all
planes.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that there is GENDER manifested in everything–the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes. On the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as SEX, on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same. No creation, physical, mental or spiritual, is possible without this Principle. An understanding of its laws will throw light on many a subject that has perplexed the minds of men. The Principle of Gender works ever in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation. Everything, and every person, contains the two Elements or Principles, or this great Principle, within it, him or her. Every Male thing has the Female Element also; every Female contains also the Male Principle. If you would understand the philosophy of Mental and Spiritual Creation, Generation, and Re-generation, you must understand and study this Hermetic Principle. It contains the solution of many mysteries of Life. We caution you that this Principle has no reference to the many base, pernicious and degrading lustful theories, teachings and practices, which are taught under fanciful titles, and which are a prostitution of the great natural principle of Gender. Such base revivals of the ancient infamous forms of Phallicism tend to ruin mind, body and soul, and the Hermetic Philosophy has ever sounded the warning note against these degraded teachings which tend toward lust, licentiousness, and perversion of Nature’s principles. If you seek such teachings, you must go elsewhere for them–Hermeticism contains nothing for you along these lines. To the pure, all things are pure; to the base, all things are base.

Jesuits, Rosicrucions, and Masons, Oh My! Sinister Sites: Sansevero Chapel

A post by FauxMulde at ATS.

This one has it all. Adultery, murder, alchemy, castrations, secret societies, real decaying corpses, amazing (almost impossible) marble sculptures, and more. This is the Sansevero Chapel in Italy.

Before getting into the chapel itself lets take a look at the man who designed it all. He has the conspiracy trifecta. A Jesuit, Rosecrucian, and a Mason. Raimondo di Sangro, the “Sorcerer Prince”

From the age of 10, di Sangro was educated at the Jesuit College of Rome. In 1730, at age 20, he came back to Naples using the title “Prince of Sansevero”. He soon joined the ranks of occult secret societies.

In spite of the religious training that he had received with the Jesuits, the young man soon joined the secret brotherhood of the Rosicrucians, where he was initiated into ancient alchemic rituals, the so called “sacred art” or “king’s art” which had been handed down through the centuries from Egyptian priest to their disciples. Don Raimondo had found his life calling. While maintaining the outmost silence about “his brothers” and the teachings he was receiving (he left no documents whatsoever on the activities of the mysterious sect) the Prince radically changed his life and devoted all his time to alchemy. Vials, ovens and alembics filled the cellar of his palace and at nighttime it was not rare to see strange, colored vapors and disgusting smells coming out of the barred windows of his cellar. It was at that time that Neapolitans started labeling him a sorcerer.”
– Rino Di Stefano, Raimondo de Sangro,
the “Sorcerer” Prince

Di Sangro introduced Freemasonry to his city as he became the head of the Neapolitan Masonic Lodge. This fact, combined with his knack for presenting peculiar inventions, such as an “eternal flame” made from a chemical compound of his creation and human skull bones, only grew the legend surrounding Di Sangro.

This guy was obsessed with alchemy, some even say he could create blood out of water or out of thin air. He dabbled with human sacrifice and human experimentation.

Prince Raimondo di Sangro was known as an eccentric, enigmatic, and mystical man. He was the head of the Neapolitan Masonic lodge, the symbols of which are interspersed throughout the chapel, and was a student of numerous areas of the sciences, as well as alchemy and other mystical disciplines. He also spoke several exotic languages such as Hebrew and Arabic and was an inventor, some of his inventions of which were rather bizarre, such as a mechanized carriage with wooden horses that was said to be able to travel over both land and water.

These eccentricities led to the Prince garnering a reputation as a practitioner of wizardry and black magic, and rumors abounded that he performed sinister magical rituals, human sacrifices, and curses. It was also said that he could perform great feats of alchemy, such as creating blood out of water or even thin air, and that he used the various body parts of his sacrificed victims in his odious spells and potions. The Prince was said to lock himself away for days on end and perform demented experiments on human beings, such as reanimating the dead. These dark rumors and legends that swirled around the Prince made him into a man to be feared and avoided; a larger than life black sorcerer who could bend magical and natural forces to his will. The Prince did little to deny these rumors and it is thought that he even encouraged them.” – Brent Swancer, The Bizarre Anatomical Machines of Italy

But that isn’t the worst of it. This next part is truly disgusting human behavior.

One of di Sangro’s many “hobbies” was Bel Canto, which means “beautiful singing”. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Who doesn’t appreciate beautiful singing?

However, for di Sangro, “Bel Canto” means buying little boys from impoverished parents, castrating them and forcing them to sing.

In spite of his being acquainted with the pleasures of family life and having children (…), the Prince enjoyed going around his many estates looking for young boys with beautiful voices. Usually he would find them in the church choir. Then he would “buy” them from their parents (usually poor, illiterate peasants who had many children) and had his personal physician, don Giuseppe Salerno, castrate them. He would then lock them up in the Conservatory of Jesus Christ’s Poor in Naples, where these young castrated boys started their careers as “sopranist”.

Now for the temple.

Before it was transformed by Raimondo di Sangro, the Sansevero Chapel was already the subject of bizarre rumors. It was said to have been constructed on an old temple of Isis and, to prove this fact, locals point to a massive Statue of the God of the Nile, located just around the corner from his home.

Adding to the sinister factor, the Palazzo Sansevero was the scene of a brutal murder at the end of the 16th century, when the composer Carlo Gesualdo caught his wife and her lover together and hacked them to death in their bed. Up until 1888, a passageway connected Palazzo Sansevero to the Sansevero chapel.

The marble statues contained are amazing. They are so well done that some people including art buffs and art media have been fooled by the work. Some say it is impossible to chisel such things in marble and say it must have been done through and alchemy process. Regardless, I find these statues amazing.

The Veiled Christ.

The works of art in the Sansevero Chapel are indeed unique, powerful and unsettling, forcing visitors to ask: “How did he do that”? And, when one knows the esoteric and alchemical background of the Prince, observing them leads to the question: “Was this done through an occult process?” The most compelling example of this is The Veiled Christ. Set in the middle of the chapel, this sculpture of Christ covered by a thin veiled has an unnerving quality: How was this marble sculpture made using a block of stone and a chisel? The veil is too … real.

“Completed in 1753 by Giuseppe Sanmartino and commissioned by Raimondo di Sangro, it portrays Christ deposed after crucifixion, covered by a transparent veil. This veil is rendered with such subtlety as to be almost deceiving to the eye, and the effect seen in person is really striking: one gets the impression that the “real” sculpture is lying underneath, and that the shroud could be easily grabbed and lifted.

It’s precisely because of Sanmartino’s extraordinary virtuosity in sculpting the veil that a legend surrounding this Christ dies hard – fooling from time to time even specialized magazines and otherwise irreproachable art websites.

Legend has it that prince Raimondo di Sangro, who commissioned the work, actually fabricated the veil himself, laying it down over Sanmartino’s sculpture and petrifying it with an alchemic method of his own invention; hence the phenomenal liquidness of the drapery, and the “transparence” of the tissue.” – Bizarrobazar, The Mystery of Chapel Sansevero

 

For centuries, a “black legend” surrounded this sculpture and others in the chapel that held that the Prince used a mysterious alchemical process to “marbelize” a fine cloth placed over the sculpture.

Some observers noticed a troubling detail about that sculpture: Christ appears to still be breathing.

“There may be another small “anomaly” in this Veiled Christ, as there is a slight indentation over the nostril, as if the shroud is being sucked in by breath – is this “dead Jesus” alive? Did di Sangro believe that Jesus had not died on the Cross? If so, perhaps he was not only a Mason, but a member of another, even more mysterious, order?

This isnt the only sculpture with the amazing veil work. Next to it is The Chastity.

On the left of Veiled Christ is The Chastity, a sculpture modeled after di Sangro’s mother Cecilia Caetani d’Aragona. The naked woman is covered from head to toe by a thin veil which reveals her forms in every detail. This work of art is, once again, another “supernatural” feat of sculpture. How can this effect be achieved using marble?

“The Chastity (La Pudicizia) by Corradini, with its drapery veiling the female character as if it was transparent, is another “mystery” of sculpting technique, where the stone seems to have lost its weight, becoming ethereal and almost floating. Imagine how the artist started his work from a squared block of marble, how his mind’s eye “saw” this figure inside of it, how he patiently removed all which didn’t belong, freeing the figure from the stone little by little, smoothing the surface, refining, chiselling every wrinkle of her veil.” – Op. Cit, Bizarrobazar.

Get ready for some Freemasonry.

Although the statue was modeled after di Sangro’s mother, it is clearly a tribute to the most important figure in Freemasonry: Veiled Isis.

“The veiled woman can be interpreted as an allegory of Wisdom, and the reference to the veiled Isis, special divinity of the science of initiation.” – Made in South Italy,

The Alchemist Chapel Indeed, in occult symbolism, Veiled Isis is the ultimate representation of occult mysteries where the truth is veiled to the profane until true esoteric initiation.

To the modern seeker she is the epitome of the Great Unknown, and only those who unveil her will be able to solve the mysteries of life, death, generation, and regeneration.”
– Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Maybe some of out resident Masons can comment on those statements.

Locals claim the location of The Chastity is exactly where the Isis statue was when the temple was an Isis temple.

Accross from The Chastity is yet another amazing work called Disillusionment.

Another perplexing sculpture infused with profound symbolism. Modeled after the Prince’s father Antonio di Sangro, it depicts a man struggling to free himself from a net as he is being helped by a winged youth.

Once again, a mystery surrounds this sculpture: How can a net be sculpted over a body that appears to have been already sculpted underneath? Was an alchemical process used to achieve this astonishing result?

Not unlike The Chasity, this sculpture is an allegory for a fundamental Masonic concept: The freeing of Man using the intellect.

“Its allegorical meaning is that man is intent on freeing himself from false beliefs (the net) with the aid of the intellect (the young man).” – Rino Di Stefano, “San Severo”

Put the three together and what do you get?

these three sculptures constitute an “esoteric triangle”. With The Chastity on the left (representing the female principle), Disillusionment on the right (representing the male principle) and Veiled Christ in the middle (representing the “perfected man”), the sculptures esoterically represent the most fundamental hermetic principle: Duality merging to create a perfected being.

In occult circles, this concept is personified by Isis and Osiris uniting to create Horus – the perfect being.

Now we get creepy! Adam and Eve.

What the heck are those things might you ask? Well, they’re exactly what you’re hoping they are not. And maybe worse. This exhibit consists of two actual skeletons of a mature male and a pregnant woman. Their entire nervous system is exposed, where the arteries are colored red and the veins are colored blue.

The fetus of the pregnant woman was on also originally on display but the specimen mysteriously disappeared.

How did Raimondo di Sangro preserve the nervous system of these human remains? Well, that’s a mystery that keeps on being mysterious. And, once again, a “dark legend” surrounds these “anatomical machines”. It was indeed rumored that “Adam and Eve” were two servants of di Sangro who were injected with a substance that crystallized their nervous system – killing them in the process. Here’s a dramatic account of the legend:

Not for the squeamish:

“The Prince, just like a sorcerer, is stirring the preparation in a big cauldron. Eventually, the long-awaited reaction takes place: a mysterious liquid is ready. On the other side of the room, the two bound and gagged servants can’t even scream anymore. The man is sobbing, while the woman, even immobilized, stays vigilant and alert — perhaps the new life she carries in her womb prevents her from giving in to fear, commanding an already impossible defense. The Prince hasn’t got much time, he has to act quickly. He pours the liquid down a strange pump, then he gets close to his victims: in their eyes he sees an unnameable terror. He starts with the man, puncturing the jugular vein and injecting the liquid right into his bloodstream with a syringe. The heart will pump the preparation throughout the body, and the Prince watches the agonizing man’s face as the dense poison begins to circulate. There, it’s all done: the servant is dead. It will take two to three hours for the mixture to solidify, and surely more than a month for the putrified flesh to fall off the skeleton and the network of veins, arteries and capillaries the process turned into marble. Now it’s the woman’s turn.” – bizzarrobazar, The mysteries of Sansevero Chapel

DNA as Seen through the Eyes of a Coder – Digital

Post by DayAfterTomorrow at ATS.

The following link is DNA as seen through the eyes of a programmer. There are some very interesting perspectives here to analyze. I will point out that the information below this link is too interesting to deny in relation to the nature of our digital reality. We are designed. It’s a foregone conclusion with no chance of negation. I will also point out that Evolution is literally this: E in Latin means out of. Volution means circling a center. As all things are relative, you cannot have evolution without involution, or entering the quantum flow of changed states. This is information exchange, pure and simple. Light is not just particle and wave. It has a third aspect of MIND. Invariant symmetry of the Strong Force in nature easily demonstrates that translational symmetry produces the world we see. Invariance never changes, which is the archetype used as a template for each thing produced into form. Information rendered into matter. Matter IS information. Shadows demonstrate this with no negation possible.

John 1

1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The word Father in Hebrew is Aleph Bet (Letters).

——–

…….” there is a sword protecting the Tree of Life (DNA). If you noticed that WORD and Aleph Bet (letters) make a human, the keys to this Tree are protected by entropy of human beings. Death cannot be defeated, and when it finally is defeated, the humans who find it will wish they could die. The book of Revelation confirms this fact.

Revelation 9:6 – At that time people will look for death and never find it. They will long to die, but death will escape them.

There is an old Zen Koan that is relevant here. I did a thread on it and you would likely enjoy it, but you would need to read the comments to know the entire thread. I did the introduction, then let the users here figure out the riddle. There is a reason you would not want to update your DNA. Being a human in the body (second placenta) is not what you want. The primary goal is to ripen the fruit on the tree (your life in the womb) so that it dies on new ground and grows a new tree above. See the thread: Orthogonal Thinking…

The key to DNA was stated by Jesus in this verse:

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

DeScribe this Scribed symbolism of Living Word on a Tree (DNA).

Jesus answered, “I am the WAY [EAST] and the TRUTH [WEST] and the LIFE [TWO MADE ONE]. No one comes to the Father [ALEPH BET / DNA] except through me (WORD).

We must all die as a human to be born from above. Read John 3. It’s a process, using the Buddha Body we occupy as a vehicle to the goal of metamorphosis. It would be like a baby in the mother’s womb trying to figure out how to stay in darkness forever. It’s not the point. It must pass through the gateway to the light, then develop again to BE the LIGHT.

Luke 17

Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.”   –  DayAfterTomorrow

UFO’s in European paintings – Did the creators have access to secret knowledge?

Post by SirBlackKnight at ATS.
Many people think that UFO phenomenon started with in the 20th century with famous cases like Roswell and the Foo fighters during world war two.

Since these events took place countless books, movies, comics have popularised the UFO subject. But some of you may know that UFO’s have been a part of mankind’s history for a long time. Between the 14th and the 17th century, artists have portrayed UFO’s in many of their art works.

In most cases, these UFO’s are explained by historian as the depictions of religious events or as celestial bodies like the moon or the sun. But in some cases the UFO’s these artists painted were very different than your standard angel or your standard cloud.

Could it be that some of these artists had done research in the secret library of the Vatican and created these paintings based on the knowledge they had found there? What about the many UFO report from those times where artist were asked by the witnesses to paint what they saw? Can these be explained by mundane events like a moonrise or Venus?

a reply to: SirBlackKnight by seattlerat

Thank you for posting a video covering two of my favorite topics: UFOs & Art

I want to believe that ancient artists had access to secret knowledge, however, I suspect that a large number of these “UFOs” and other odd stuff in old artwork is nothing more than symbolism- using imagery to convey an idea. For example, there is a statue of Moses sculpted by Michelangelo, that depicts the Biblical character as having horns (like a goat). While the reasons for these protuberances from the statue’s head are still being argued by art historians and other scholars, they were most likely meant to convey the idea of rays of holy light being sent to (or from?) the heavens. More Info

Sure, some artists may have heard tales of astronomical events or perhaps even witnessed them firsthand, but until the advent of photography during the industrial age, they had to rely on memories and creativity in order to try and translate the strange sightings to canvas or stone. Few of us (artists) have photographic memories, and using reference material is something that many rely upon when generating imagery.

Still, there are quite a few ancient works of art that are fascinating due to these UFO-like insertions. One of my favorites (the first work covered in the posted video) is “The Madonna with Saint Giovannino”, by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449-1494) – there is no question in my mind that the artist wanted to depict someone witnessing an object flying in the sky!
