“Caprica” needed a season to set its premise….revealed only fully as a 5 minute ‘things to come’ segment at the end of the last episode after the show was dumped. “Blood & Chrome” has the deck stacked against it as well. Too bad. Good mature science fiction on TV is rare to non-existent in the best of times.

Actress Lili Bordán was living and working in Budapest, Hungary, when she got her first taste of “Battlestar Galactica,” taking note of “what an amazing opportunity it would be for an actor in this series.” With “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,” she found her opportunity, playing Dr. Beka Kelly, a Graystone Industries scientist who helped improve the Cylons.

Set between the events of “Caprica” and “Battlestar Galactica,” “Blood & Chrome,” which aired on Syfy Feb. 10 and was released earlier this week on DVD and Blu-ray, retells the first mission of rookie pilot William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) at the beginning of the Cylon War. Adama, his new co-pilot Coker (Ben Cotton) and the mysterious Kelly detour from a simple “milk run” into a full-fledged covert operation on a foreign world.

“This planet and this war are uncharted,” Bordán said. “It’s like the jungle. It’s like Vietnam or the beginning…

AN UPDATE ON THE 360 POINT THEORY 2012

March 28, 2012

A SUMMARY OF POINTS CHAUDS (“hot points”) THEORY 2012
updated March 28, 2012

“The Sat Bhai, an  Oriental Order embraces the Perfect Terrestrial Zone of 360 degrees, and the Mystic Zone inclusive of all others, and occupies the highest point of the Masonic fabric. Therefore, while under its benign influence, justice is done to all, and innovations inconsistent with the grand principles of harmony, and a just equality, regulated to the varied circumstances of the social scale, are righteously condemned.
” In the Indian Tarot 360 card, each card is carried out with one of the gods of the South Indian Pantheon. You can use these names for degrees from 101 up to 360 (or give to all degrees parallel secret of the name.”     —  A.R. 97o

Recognizing a correspondence between the consecratory Gnostic System and traditional Ecclesiastic System,
various initiatory systems with a focus on a moment or moment of empowerment, I selected the final English
language definitive system of the Rite of Memphis of 97 degrees, those above the ninetieth being largely
administrative, and linked these to the points chauds (“hot points”) of the Michael Bertiaux system of
empowerments. The empowered individual was given an exercise in which they were told that to obtain the essential
meaning of a given degree for them, select the name of the degree, assume the “prophetic asana” as taught me by
Bill Webb (essentially, the Islamic prayer posture, but with head lowered carefully beneath the body as far towards
the groin as could comfortably be managed. A scribe would select a selection and read it at random from the Judeo-
Christian Bible or a Class A Thelemic document (or other holy book). The scryer would then meditate upon the
degree and passage until he or she obtained a Word of the degree (sometimes a phrase), which the reader and scribe
would record. The record of the experiment was then submitted to me, and I evaluated it using the then known
methods of traditional Qabalistic validation for Biblical verses, or New Aeon English Qabala for Class A texts,
sometimes bringing in other advanced practitioners for consultation. The process, if successful, would reveal the
next step in empowerments for the individual, and was thus, in a sense, self guiding. Sometimes this led to
precognitive powers, advanced travel in the body of light to other terrestrial locations and times, healing powers, et
al.

After several years of experiment, I reported on the matter to that date. After the turn of the 21st Century another
breakthrough took place, when additional correspondences that directly impact on effectiveness were discovered.

While my area of concentration has been tracing and understanding the developments in the Authentic Magical
Tradition since the 1600s, I have traced the broad outlines of initiation back to ancient Sumerian Civilization. There,
after a mysterious age of enlightenment, a priesthood developed an initiatory system which has survived, in
somewhat fragmentary form, in successive magical societies ever since. There is a very ancient story that accounts
for this system of initiation. Kenneth Mackenzie relates that “According to Berosus, there appeared in the Erythrean
Sea — the modern Persian Gulf — bordering on Babylonia (actually Sumer, as we have learned since Mackenzie’s
time — TAG), an animal endowed with reason, whose name was Oannes or John, perhaps the Anu of the Assyrian
inscriptions…the usual appearance in which it was visible was in that of a fish, having beneath its fish’s head a
human head, and feet beneath like those of a man…he used in the daytime to converse with men, but never ate in
common with them; that he communicated a knowledge of letters, sciences and arts. He taught the art of building,
the principles of architecture and geometry; he was also the first instructor in botany and agriculture.” This system
was taken up by the Priesthood, whose garb in Sumer, Assyria, Babylonia and eventually even Roman Catholicism,
included a fish-head miter and robes ending in a fish tale. The Masons eventually took up the teaching of this system
in graduated initiations, but had become fragmentary, the original number of points or initiations being 360,
preserved as 90 in the Egyptian Rite of Misraim (one fourth of the system) in the West, while maintain as a system
of approximately 360 points in the East as the healing system of acupuncture, to which it corresponds.

As one writer notes, “It is from Babylonia, but originally from India, that we of the West got our manner of dividing
the circle into 360 degrees. …The number 360 arises from an old Theosophical teaching of the ancient God-Wisdom
of mankind, to the effect that the true number of days in a year is 360, the cycle of the seasons. But as the ages
passed, and due to the fact that the earth is an individual with a will of its own, it does things at times, not exactly
disobeying the mandates of the system in which it is enmeshed, but determined, as are the other planets, to move a
little on its own. So that as the ages pass along—taking the mean of 360 days in a year—the daily rotation of the
earth quickens a little bit for a while, and the days become 361, and then 362, in a year, and then 363, 364 and now
at the present time our year consists of 365 days and a fraction. Then this libration returns to the normal 360 days in
a year; and then the Earth slows down its rotational period, so that for ages, any one of our Earth years is less than
360 days: 359, 358, 357, 356, until it reaches the end of that libratory cycle. Then it begins to swing back; and thus
the earth continues to follow this libration.

“That is why the Babylonian initiates, getting their ancient wisdom originally from India, divided the circle into 360
points or degrees; because in their Temple-crypts and Initiation-chambers they were taught that the true earth-year
consists of 360 days. Thus the circle became adopted in mathematics as divided into 360 points, cogs, degrees —
call them what you like. It is a wheel, a wheel of time, which actually applies to the earth.”

Another source informs us (Melville, 2002):

“The final step in this story, occurring probably some time in the Ur III period, right at the end of the third
millennium, was the introduction of a sexagesimal place value system. The number of signs was reduced to just two:
a vertical wedge derived from the small cone often used for the base unit, and a corner wedge, derived from the
small circle. The corner wedge had a value of ten vertical wedges. In the sexagesimal counting system described
above, the next size unit was the large cone, worth six circles. In the place value system, this unit was denoted by the
same-sized vertical wedge as the base unit, and it was worth six corner wedges. Now the pair of symbols could be
repeated in an indefinitely larger alternating series of corner and vertical wedges, always keeping the same
conversion factors of 10 and 6. The price paid was that a vertical wedge could now mean 1, or 60 (6×10), or 3600
(60×60), and so on. Its actual value was determined by its place.

The sexagesimal place-value system greatly facilitated calculations, but, of course, at the end of the day, the final
answer had to be translated back into the underlying metrological system of units. So a problem would be stated in
proper units and the solution would be given in proper units, but the intermediate calculations were carried out in the
new sexagesimal place value system.”

I have little hope of recovering all 360 degrees of the authentic tradition, but I think I, or my best students or others who read this may succeed in “accomplishing” the entire degree system of the Rite of Memphis-Misraim, fully one
fourth of the ancient system, bypassing (though not necessarily being a substitution for) ritual initiation and
generating profound understanding of and use for all existing systems of initiation, and enhancing the work of those
involved in such systems.

The “trigger points” or “power points”, known as points chauds in the system of Gnostic Voudon as taught by T
Michael Bertiaux and developed according to his methods, with due consultation with other sources, are an attempt
to expand upon the empowerments and their corresponding points on the human body developed at the end of the
20th Century and the beginning of the 21st. As stated the authentic tradition may be reasonably postulated to have
originated in ancient Sumer, Akad and Babylon, with heavenly correspondences to each degree of initiation in a
complete circular system of 360 degrees, of which the 90 degrees of the Rite of Misraim (Egypt) represents only one
fourth of the original. The earliest form of the authentic tradition was shamanic, and remnants of this system survive
all over the world in aboriginal society. The first systematic system of magick appears to have come from the rich
early societies of Mesopotamia, Sumer, Akkad , Babylon and related societies. There the first known system of
numbers was developed, circa 5000 years ago. It is known that the Babylonians employed a sexigesimal, or base 60
system of numbers, in contrast to our base 10 system. The latter being obviously based on “counting on one’s
fingers” . Various ideas have come forth to explain this curious number system, but it is obvious that all systems of
language and number in ancient times were intertwined with magick and mysticism and viewed with awe, and that
six sixties equals 360, the number of degrees in the Babylonian circle, held to be in concert with the wheel of the
year of 360 days. While we use a base ten system, there are many survivals in our culture the Babylonian system,
such as 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and in terrestrial measurement, 360 degrees in a circle.

Now, the term “degree” also represents a marker of initiation, as in the system of 90 Degrees in the Oriental Rite of
Misraim (Egypt in Hebrew). The English word descends from the Latin gradus, or step. In the end, a degree of
initiation, or in the many other contexts in which the term is used, represents a step, and the Mesopotamian system
in base 60 has many preoccupations with six times that number, or 360. We learn from Ctesias that the city of
Babylon was built on both sides of the river in the form of a square, and enclosed within a triple row of lofty walls.
Ctesias makes the outermost wall 360 stades. The legendary list of kings tends to repeat reigns of 360 years. Other
“correspondences” show the survival of this predilection in various ways, among them:

. A Divine Year for the Hindus is equivalent to 360 solar years.
. According to the Chinese medicine, the human body has 360 bones and 360 small articulations; it counts
360 points of acupuncture and 360 major drugs for the therapy.
. The 360 towers at Babylon.
. The 360 steles, altars or idols surrounding the pre Islamic Kaaba of Mecca.
. The 360 degrees of a circle and the 360 symbols of the Zodiac.
. The 360 glances of Allah in the Islamic countries. It is the number of times per day that God looks to the
secret or preserved Tablet, that was the first thing created by God. (Koran 85:22)
. The 360 chapels built around the mosque of Balk.
. The 360 temples on the Lowham mountain, in China.
. The 360 statues of divinities to the palace of Daïri in Japan.
. The 360 gods of the orphism.
. In classical Qabala, ‘The Messiah’ (HMSHYCH) has a value of 360.
. In classical Qabala, the letter shin, a euphemism for God, has the value of 360.
. “If you ever wondered why ’24’ hours in a day, and not some other, arbitrarily chosen number, or why there
are ‘360’ degrees in a circle instead of some other number or some other unit, the reason stems from how
handily 24 and 360 break down into many useful fractional parts using integers. For example, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6,
8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 45, 60, 90, 120, 180, and 360 are ALL factors of 360, while 1, 2, 3,
4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 are ALL factors of 24. Few numbers break down into as many handy factors, and these
numbers have a lot of factors in common. So while one might use another arbitrary number, chances are
such a number would be less useful when considering fractions of the whole. 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, 1/9,
1/10, 1/12, 1/15, 1/18, 1/20, 1/24, 1/30, 1/36, 1/40, 1/45, 1/60, 1/90, 1/120, and 1/180 are all handy, though
the ones under 1/12 are even more so. For similar reasons, one ‘dozen’ is a handy unit in which to sell items.
So regardless of how long a planet’s day is in actual time, breaking it up into 24 units is a handy thing to do.
Further divisions in 60 minutes and 60 seconds uses these same numbers and handy factors.” (quotation ©
January of 2000 by James L. R. Beach)
. The 360 Aeons of the gnostics.
. In the past, there were 360 days in one terrestrial year, according to Immanuel Velikovsky. Various old
documents from ancient people tend to confirm it.
. The 360 sovereigns who reigned in Egypt since the first known Pharaoh until the Augustus Caesar
supplanted the Pharaohs (year 1 of the Christian era).
. The 360 urns for the usage of the priests of Egypt for the libations in the honor of Osiris.
. The 360 Egyptian priests who poured every day the water of the Nile to Acanthopolis in a bored cask.
. The Athenian people erected 360 statues to Demetrius.
. The enclosing wall of Babylon built by Semiramis had 360 stages length.
. Mahomet destroys the 360 idols of Mecca.
. Darius divided the Gyndes into 360 channels because one of his sacred horses had drowned in this river.
. In the great Persian feast the magi were made accompany by 360 young peoples.
. The number 360 is used 2 times in the Bible.
. There are 12 numbers in the Bible which are multiple of 360, and the sum of the occurrences of each of
numbers gives 26.
. The expression ‘do not fear’ is used 360 times in the Bible, according to Pastor R. Wurmbrand.

The more correspondences to this system we discover, the more we can, as Scientific Illuminists, experiment with
and verify the usefulness and accuracy of the system. The 97 Degrees in the Rite of Memphis and its 90 Degree
earlier counterpart in the Rite of Mizraim are derived from a number of sources, some of which vary a bit in their
attribution. The last English language refinement of the former — not necessarily the best but most accessible to the
English-speaking reader, comes from John Yarker. The points chauds themselves are derived from our own
experiments, suggested by teachings of Bertiaux and the late William W. Webb. The terrestrial aires were located in
an old manuscript and are attributed to John Dee the Elizabethan astrologer and trace channel. At the end of this list,
I have included a set of tentative acupuncture correspondences developed in concert with magician and Licensed
Acupuncture Physician and researcher David Zietz. The procedural approach I now propose is as follows:

A. All recipients of points chauds beyond a few should be invested with the “power and wisdom” of the
ancient priesthoods, if not with the actual priesthoods themselves, as “containments” for the energies
transmitted.
B. All recipients should be encouraged to keep notes and share with other participants the results of
empowerments as they progress, be they positive, negative or neutral.
C. The points should be administered in “sacred space” or “power zones”. While room should be made for
spontaneous empowerments, on the whole the recipients should study the points and their correspondences,
the antient degrees with which they are associated, and should indicate themselves out of their own
intuition and study and experience which points are to be empowered on a given occasion, by word and
gesture, and should determine the number of points they are comfortable assimilating on a given occasion.

Refer to previously issued correspondences between known 97 points, location and uses.

In the accompanying table we present the points chauds and correspondences as originally developed for this
research project in the 1990s, keyed on the 97 degree system of Memphis. The researcher can quick-reference the
points and degrees in The Compleat Rite of Memphis.

Integrated with this table is information about corresponding acupuncture points, based on the work of David Zeitz,
a Florida-based certified acupuncturist who has attempted to correlate these specific points with acupuncture points
in common. Take note that there are far more acupuncture ‘points’ than the 90-plus degrees in this system, let alone
systems of 33 or 9 degrees. It is conjectured that other points in acupuncture may eventually give clues to
undiscovered or lost correspondences.

Finally, following the listing, I quote without comment some of the most exotic, speculative ideas considered in
recent decades on the origin of magical knowledge in relationship to this system. These comments should be taken
as speculation, and no more. Before the 1940s the Sumerian civilization was completely buried in the mists of
history, though its effects on the science, religion and other aspects of Mesopotamian and other civilizations were
known to us from successor cultures.

Where did Sexagismal numbers come from?
Maybe we should start with the question: What is a sexagismal number? We deal with sexagismal numbers all the
time ( yes, that was a very bad pun). sexagismal numbers are based upon fractions of 60. Sexigismal numbers are the
bases of our measures of degrees , minutes, seconds and hours, minutes, and seconds. Now we have a new question:
How did the division of a circle and the division of a day come to have the same fractional components? The answer
lies in a number system based on the sum of fractions of 60 that preceded both the notions of length of a day and
division of the circle. As you might guess from that statement, sexagismal numbers are old; very old.
Greek astronomy held that the daily passage of the sun through the heavens relative to the fixed stars was a constant
angular distance. The passage took approximately 360 days (hey, who’s counting?) and the concept of the degree
was born. It’s interesting to note that we have lived with a system of measure based upon an incorrect estimate of the
length of a year and a model of planetary motion that was just plain wrong.
To get to the first vestiges of a base 60 numeric system we have to go back almost 6000 yes to the region then
known as Sumeria. Sumerians were the first city dwellers. They actively traded goods, owned land, and by all
accounts, had their share of disputes about price, ownership and value. In short: same problems, different millennia.
The trade issues necessitate the development of a written language, and numerical system. They weren’t worried
about recording history, they were interested in recording profit. The mathematics of Sumeria preceded the
invention of an alphabet by a few millennia, so it took a bit of time to decipher what they were recording and the
numerology had a profound defect, which I’ll talk about in a moment. Like the modern Arabic notation we use, the
Sumerian numerical system was ordered right to left. For comparison purposes, let’s take a look at our system first.
The number 349 is really a short form of the numeric expression (3*100) + (4*10) + (1*9) + (0). The Sumerian
expression 3,4,9 could mean (3*60) + (4*1) + (9/60) or it might mean (3*1) + (4/60) + (9/360). The numerology of
Sumeria was context based, they didn’t have a position for zero. They could form numbers with extreme precision,
but without a context, the magnitude remains unknown.
The Sumerians recorded their numbers on clay tablets using a stylus. Tables were calculated of fractions of 60 and
numerical equivalents were derived for sums of fractions. The clay dried and the records, while somewhat hard to decipher, represented a monumental amount of accumulated calculation. This effort was, as they say, “cast in stone”.
Over 4 millennia, Sumeria came and went, but those hardened tablets were recorded by many later civilizations .The
beauty of the Sumerian system lay in it’s extreme precision in fractions. The factors of 60 are 1,2,3,4,5,6,10,12, 15,
20 and 30. In the base 10 system the factors are 1,2, and 5. There is no exact numerical representation for the value
of 1/3 in a base 10 system but in Sumerian notation it is simply 20/60. The paradox of Sumeria is the extreme
precision coupled with a total lack of accuracy. This a common mathematical thread which holds older civilizations
together. The fractions that the Sumerians labor sly cast in stone would become the basis for calculation of
astronomical movements 4000 years later by the Greeks, and used in timing calculations to land a man on the moon
over 6 millennia later.

FURTHER NOTES ON 360° THEORY OF POINTS CHAUDS

Origin. The Degree symbol was originally the Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbol for the sun. The Egyptian year was
only 360 days long and the circle was given ….

Twelve spokes, one wheel, navels three. Who can comprehend this?

On it are placed together three hundred and sixty like pegs.

They shake not in the least.

(Dirghatama, Rig Veda 1.164.48)

The Mathematics

The ancient cultures divided the sky into 36 “night stations” of stars. These could be divided into a total of
108 (36 x 3) segments or sars (Latvian zar- = “branch”) for better detail. I simply calibrated the data by
potentiating 108 by 10 to get 1080 (= 360 x 3) and then dividing by 3. This was applied to the individual
“reigns” of the (Sumerian) kings. to get the degrees of arc of the circle.

For example, we potentiate 20 sars x 10 = 200. Then we divide by 3, which gives 66.66 degrees (of 360
degrees). When we do this with all of the lengths of reign, the total is 360°. Hence, the ancients are simply
“sectioning” their ancient heavenly “clock” of stars. therefore

I.

Each length of “reign” of a Sumerian “son of God” applies to a particular NAMED “heavenly” region of the
360-degree “circle” of heaven.

II.

The length of “reign” listed for each alleged “king” is the distance in heliacal rising star days between
consecutive “NAMES” on the list of kings. These names are identified in detail subsequently as specific stars
in the heavens, moving within these six “heavenly houses”, which 6 preceded the division of the heavens into 12.

The Iranian calendar ( Gahshomari-ye Irani) can refer to any in a succession of a set of calendars. They are
used for over two millennia in Iran

before which the country was known internationally as Persia…)

Afghanistan

The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is a landlocked country in south central Asia. It is variously described as
being located within Central Asia, South Asia, or the Middle East… and related societies

The current official Iranian calendar begins on the vernal equinox as determined by astronomical
calculations for the Iran Standard Time meridian.

A meridian is an imaginary arc on the Earth’s surface from the North Pole to the South Pole that connects all
locations running along it with a given longitude. The position of a point on the meridian is given by the
latitude. Each meridian is perpendicular to all circles of latitude at the (52.5°E or GMT+3.5h). This
determination of starting moment is more accurate than the Gregorian calendar.The Gregorian calendar is
the internationally accepted civil calendar. It was first proposed by the Calabrian doctor Aloysius Lilius, and
decreed by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom the calendar was named, on 24 February 1582 by the papal bull
Inter gravissimas because it is synchronized with the vernal equinox year, but requires consulting an
astronomical almanac. One of the longest chronological records in human history, the Iranian calendar has
been modified time and again during its history to suit administrative, climatic, and religious purposes.

In English the current calendar is sometimes called “Solar Hejri” calendar, and its years are designated AP,
short for Anno Persico. The Iranian year usually begins within a day of 21 March of the Gregorian calendar.
To find the corresponding year of the Gregorian calendar, add 621 or 622 (depending on the time of the year)
to a Solar Hejri year.

Ancient calendars

Although the earliest evidence of Iranian calendrical traditions is from the second millennium BC, predating
the appearance of the Iranian prophet Zoroaster

Zoroaster or Zarathushtra , also referred to as Zartosht , was an ancient Iranian prophet and religious poet.
The hymns attributed to him, the Gathas, are at the liturgical core of Zoroastrianism… the first fully
preserved calendar is that of the Achaemenids. Throughout recorded history, Persians have been keen on the
idea and importance of having a calendar

.They were among the first cultures to use a solar calendar. A solar calendar is a calendar whose dates
indicate the position of the earth on its revolution around the sun .-Tropical solar calendars and have long
favoured a solar over lunar

A lunar calendar is a calendar that is based on cycles of the moon phase. The only widely used purely lunar
calendar is the Islamic calendar or Hijri calendar, whose year always consists of 12 lunar months and
lunisolar

A lunisolar calendar is a calendar in many cultures whose date indicates both the moon phase and the time of
the solar year. If the solar year is defined as a tropical year then a lunisolar calendar will give an indication of
the season; if it is taken as a sidereal year then the calendar will.

The sun has always been a symbol in Iranian culture and is closely related to the folklore
regarding Cyrus the Great, also known as Cyrus II of Persia and Cyrus the Elder, was the first Zoroastrian Persian
Shahanshah… himself.

Old Iranian calendar

Old Persian inscriptions and tablets indicate that early Iranians used a 360-day calendar based on the
Babylonian system and modified for their beliefs and day names. Its months had two or three divisions
depending on the phase of the moon. Twelve months of 30 days were named for festivals or activities of the Pastoral, as an adjective, refers to the lifestyle of shepherds and pastoralists, moving livestock around larger
areas of land according to seasons and availability of water and food. “Pastoral” also describes literature, art
and music which depicts the life of shepherds, often in a highly…year. A 13th month was added every six
years to keep the calendar synchronized with the seasons.

Time

* year: The Sumerians used a 360 day year by 2100 BC.

* week: The Babylonians introduced the seven day week, due to the belief that seven brought bad luck, so
they did not want to work the seventh day.

* hour: The 12 hour day and 12 hour night originates from Mesopotamia. The length of these hours
changed through the year, being equally spaced over the time of light and dark, respectively.

Eros is the law of sexual joining or coming together and Logos is the law of rational structure or otganization of energy into patterns…..The descent of the divine into the events of human history is made possible by the existence of a succession of bishops, which extends back to the ancient priesthoods as well as at the time of the Christ and the Holy Apostles…The Old Roman Church … did teach the existence of such a (secret) map to be found in the body of the chela, which sowed actually where there were differences between the ideals or true
placement of the powers in their collection of pacquets and what was the actual result of the process of incarnation.
Michael Bertiaux

.…I made use of some inner drive and developed on the physical plane a particular structure of lattices and
connective circuits, which were probably latent in an otherwise purely verbal system…That rather lifeless system,
which contained some rather lifeless Egyptian roots, was really quite remarkable. It was the design for the computer
and energy system of what we might now be tempted to call something like a UFO object or projection form some
empirical or chaotic marma; but which at that time, as strange as it might seem to the uninformed reader of these matters, was posing rather inconspicuously as an Egyptian Rite of Ancient Freemasonry with the name of Memphis-Misraim.‘.

the property of renewing its skin, and thus figures the destruction and renewal of nature, which appears to
weaken and even perish at certain epochs; but which only grows old to renew its youth and prepare itself for
new revolutions.

years B.C.E., Sumerian culture realized a priest-astronomer class, improved agrarian techniques and developed the
first sexagesimal (base 60) numbering system.” Clark Nelson

.In 1936, a tablet was excavated some 200 miles from Babylon. Here one should make the interjection that the
Sumerians were first to make one of man’s greatest inventions, namely, writing; through written communication,
knowledge could be passed from one person to others, and from one generation to the next and future ones. They impressed their cuneiform (wedge-shaped) script on soft clay tablets with a stylus, and the tablets were then
hardened in the sun. The mentioned tablet, whose translation was partially published only in 1950, is devoted to
various geometrical figures, and states that the ratio of the perimeter of a regular hexagon to the circumference of
the circumscribed circle equals a number which in modern notation is given by 57/60 + 36/(60^2) (the Babylonians
used the sexagesimal system, i.e., their base was 60 rather than 10).

The Babylonians knew, of course, that the perimeter of a hexagon is exactly equal to six times the radius of the
circumscribed circle, in fact that was evidently the reason why they chose to divide the circle into 360 degrees
(and we are still burdened with that figure to this day). The tablet, therefore, gives … Pi = 25/8 = 3.125.

.So that’s who gave us the 360 degrees in the circle. See, assignment of degree-measure to angles is somewhat
arbitrary. Some choices are more natural than others, though, and when you’re working in base 60, 6×60 is a pretty
natural choice.. Petr Beckmann

A SUMMARY OF POINTS CHAUDS  (“hot points”) THEORY 2011

Recognizing a correspondence between the consecratory Gnostic System and traditional Ecclesiastic System, various initiatory systems with a focus on a moment or moment of empowerment, I selected the final English language definitive system of the Rite of Memphis of 97 degrees, those above the ninetieth being largely administrative, and linked these to the points chauds (“hot points”) of the Michael Bertiaux system of empowerments. The empowered individual was given an exercise in which they were told that to obtain the essential meaning of a given degree for them, select the name of the degree, assume the “prophetic asana” as taught me by Bill Webb (essentially, the Islamic prayer posture, but with head lowered carefully beneath the body as far towards the groin as could comfortably be managed. A scribe would select a selection and read it at random from the Judeo-Christian Bible or a Class A Thelemic document (or other holy book). The scryer would then meditate upon the degree and passage until he or she obtained a Word of the degree (sometimes a phrase), which the reader and scribe would record. The record of the experiment was then submitted to me, and I evaluated it using the then known methods of traditional Qabalistic validation for Biblical verses, or New Aeon English Qabala for Class A texts, sometimes bringing in other advanced practitioners for consultation. The process, if successful, would reveal the next step in empowerments for the individual, and was thus, in a sense, self guiding. Sometimes this led to precognitive powers, advanced travel in the body of light to other terrestrial locations and times, healing powers, et al.
After several years of experiment, I reported on the matter to that date. After the turn of the 21st Century another breakthrough took place, when additional correspondences that directly impact on effectiveness were discovered.
While my area of concentration has been tracing and understanding the developments in the Authentic Magical Tradition since the 1600s, I have traced the broad outlines of initiation back to ancient Sumerian Civilization. There, after a mysterious age of enlightenment, a priesthood developed an initiatory system which has survived, in somewhat fragmentary form, in successive magical societies ever since. There is a very ancient story that accounts for this system of initiation. Kenneth Mackenzie relates that “According to Berosus, there appeared in the Erythrean Sea — the modern Persian Gulf — bordering on Babylonia (actually Sumer, as we have learned since Mackenzie’s time — TAG), an animal endowed with reason, whose name was Oannes or John, perhaps the Anu of the Assyrian inscriptions…the usual appearance in which it was visible was in that of a fish, having beneath its fish’s head a human head, and feet beneath like those of a man…he used in the daytime to converse with men, but never ate in common with them; that he communicated a knowledge of letters, sciences and arts. He taught the art of building, the principles of architecture and geometry; he was also the first instructor in botany and agriculture.” This system was taken up by the Priesthood, whose garb in Sumer, Assyria, Babylonia and eventually even Roman Catholicism, included a fish-head miter and robes ending in a fish tale. The Masons eventually took up the teaching of this system in graduated initiations, but had become fragmentary, the original number of points or initiations being 360, preserved as 90 in the Egyptian Rite of Misraim (one fourth of the system) in the West, while maintain as a system of approximately 360 points in the East as the healing system of acupuncture, to which it corresponds.
As one writer notes, “It is from Babylonia, but originally from India, that we of the West got our manner of dividing the circle into 360 degrees. …The number 360 arises from an old Theosophical teaching of the ancient God-Wisdom of mankind, to the effect that the true number of days in a year is 360, the cycle of the seasons. But as the ages passed, and due to the fact that the earth is an individual with a will of its own, it does things at times, not exactly disobeying the mandates of the system in which it is enmeshed, but determined, as are the other planets, to move a little on its own. So that as the ages pass along—taking the mean of 360 days in a year—the daily rotation of the earth quickens a little bit for a while, and the days become 361, and then 362, in a year, and then 363, 364 and now at the present time our year consists of 365 days and a fraction. Then this libration returns to the normal 360 days in a year; and then the Earth slows down its rotational period, so that for ages, any one of our Earth years is less than 360 days: 359, 358, 357, 356, until it reaches the end of that libratory cycle. Then it begins to swing back; and thus the earth continues to follow this libration.
“That is why the Babylonian initiates, getting their ancient wisdom originally from India, divided the circle into 360 points or degrees; because in their Temple-crypts and Initiation-chambers they were taught that the true earth-year consists of 360 days. Thus the circle became adopted in mathematics as divided into 360 points, cogs, degrees — call them what you like. It is a wheel, a wheel of time, which actually applies to the earth.”
Another source informs us (Melville, 2002):
“The final step in this story, occurring probably some time in the Ur III period, right at the end of the third millennium, was the introduction of a sexagesimal place value system. The number of signs was reduced to just two: a vertical wedge derived from the small cone often used for the base unit, and a corner wedge, derived from the small circle. The corner wedge had a value of ten vertical wedges. In the sexagesimal counting system described above, the next size unit was the large cone, worth six circles. In the place value system, this unit was denoted by the same-sized vertical wedge as the base unit, and it was worth six corner wedges. Now the pair of symbols could be repeated in an indefinitely larger alternating series of corner and vertical wedges, always keeping the same conversion factors of 10 and 6. The price paid was that a vertical wedge could now mean 1, or 60 (6×10), or 3600 (60×60), and so on. Its actual value was determined by its place.
The sexagesimal place-value system greatly facilitated calculations, but, of course, at the end of the day, the final answer had to be translated back into the underlying metrological system of units. So a problem would be stated in proper units and the solution would be given in proper units, but the intermediate calculations were carried out in the new sexagesimal place value system.”

I have little hope of recovering all 360 degrees of the authentic tradition, but I think I, or my best students or others who read this may succeed in “accomplishing” the entire degree system of the Rite of Memphis-Misraim, fully one fourth of the ancient system, bypassing (though not necessarily being a substitution for) ritual initiation and generating profound understanding of and use for all existing systems of initiation, and enhancing the work of those involved in such systems.
The “trigger points” or “power points”, known as points chauds in the system of Gnostic Voudon as taught by T Michael Bertiaux and developed according to his methods, with due consultation with other sources, are an attempt to expand upon the empowerments and their corresponding points on the human body developed at the end of the 20th Century and the beginning of the 21st. As stated the authentic tradition may be reasonably postulated to have originated in ancient Sumer, Akad and Babylon, with heavenly correspondences to each degree of initiation in a complete circular system of 360 degrees, of which the 90 degrees of the Rite of Misraim (Egypt) represents only one fourth of the original. The earliest form of the authentic tradition was shamanic, and remnants of this system survive all over the world in aboriginal society. The first systematic system of magick appears to have come from the rich early societies of Mesopotamia, Sumer, Akkad , Babylon and related societies. There the first known system of numbers was developed, circa 5000 years ago. It is known that the Babylonians employed a sexigesimal, or base 60 system of numbers, in contrast to our base 10 system. The latter being obviously based on “counting on one’s fingers” . Various ideas have come forth to explain this curious number system, but it is obvious that all systems of language and number in ancient times were intertwined with magick and mysticism and viewed with awe, and that six sixties equals 360, the number of degrees in the Babylonian circle, held to be in concert with the wheel of the year of 360 days. While we use a base ten system, there are many survivals in our culture the Babylonian system, such as 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and in terrestrial measurement, 360 degrees in a circle.
Now, the term “degree” also represents a marker of initiation, as in the system of 90 Degrees in the Oriental Rite of Misraim (Egypt in Hebrew). The English word descends from the Latin gradus, or step. In the end, a degree of initiation, or in the many other contexts in which the term is used, represents a step, and the Mesopotamian system in base 60 has many preoccupations with six times that number, or 360. We learn from Ctesias that the city of Babylon was built on both sides of the river in the form of a square, and enclosed within a triple row of lofty walls. Ctesias makes the outermost wall 360 stades. The legendary list of kings tends to repeat reigns of 360 years. Other “correspondences” show the survival of this predeliction in various ways, among them:
    A Divine Year for the Hindus is equivalent to 360 solar years.
    According to the Chinese medicine, the human body has 360 bones and 360 small articulations; it counts 360 points of acupuncture and 360 major drugs for the therapy.
    The 360 towers at Babylon.
    The 360 steles, altars or idols surrounding the pre Islamic Kaaba of Mecca.
    The 360 degrees of a circle and the 360 symbols of the Zodiac.
    The 360 glances of Allah in the Islamic countries. It is the number of times per day that God looks to the secret or preserved Tablet, that was the first thing created by God. (Koran 85:22)
    The 360 chapels built around the mosque of Balk.
    The 360 temples on the Lowham mountain, in China.
    The 360 statues of divinities to the palace of Daïri in Japan.
    The 360 gods of the orphism.
    In classical Qabala, ‘The Messiah’ (HMSHYCH) has a value of 360.
    In classical Qabala, the letter shin, a euphemism for God, has the value of 360.
    “If you ever wondered why ’24’ hours in a day, and not some other, arbitrarily chosen number, or why there are ‘360’ degrees in a circle instead of some other number or some other unit, the reason stems from how handily 24 and 360 break down into many useful fractional parts using integers. For example, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 45, 60, 90, 120, 180, and 360 are ALL factors of 360, while 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 are ALL factors of 24. Few numbers break down into as many handy factors, and these numbers have a lot of factors in common. So while one might use another arbitrary number, chances are such a number would be less useful when considering fractions of the whole. 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, 1/12, 1/15, 1/18, 1/20, 1/24, 1/30, 1/36, 1/40, 1/45, 1/60, 1/90, 1/120, and 1/180 are all handy, though the ones under 1/12 are even more so. For similar reasons, one ‘dozen’ is a handy unit in which to sell items. So regardless of how long a planet’s day is in actual time, breaking it up into 24 units is a handy thing to do. Further divisions in 60 minutes and 60 seconds uses these same numbers and handy factors.” (quotation © January of 2000 by James L. R. Beach)
    The 360 Aeons of the gnostics.
    In the past, there were 360 days in one terrestrial year, according to Immanuel Velikovsky. Various old documents from ancient people tend to confirm it.
    The 360 sovereigns who reigned in Egypt since the first known Pharaoh until the Augustus Caesar supplanted the Pharaohs (year 1 of the Christian era).
    The 360 urns for the usage of the priests of Egypt for the libations in the honor of Osiris.
    The 360 Egyptian priests who poured every day the water of the Nile to Acanthopolis in a bored cask.
    The Athenian people erected 360 statues to Demetrius.
    The enclosing wall of Babylon built by Semiramis had 360 stages length.
    Mahomet destroys the 360 idols of Mecca.
    Darius divided the Gyndes into 360 channels because one of his sacred horses had drowned in this river.
    In the great Persian feast the magi were made accompany by 360 young peoples.
    The number 360 is used 2 times in the Bible.
    There are 12 numbers in the Bible which are multiple of 360, and the sum of the occurrences of each of numbers gives 26.
    The expression ‘do not fear’ is used 360 times in the Bible, according to Pastor R. Wurmbrand.
The more correspondences to this system we discover, the more we can, as Scientific Illuminists, experiment with and verify the usefulness and accuracy of the system. The 97 Degrees in the Rite of Memphis and its 90 Degree earlier counterpart in the Rite of Mizraim are derived from a number of sources, some of which vary a bit in their attribution. The last English language refinement of the former — not necessarily the best but most accessible to the English-speaking reader, comes from John Yarker. The points chauds themselves are derived from our own experiments, suggested by teachings of Bertiaux and the late William W. Webb. The terrestrial aires were located in an old manuscript and are attributed to John Dee the Elizabethan astrologer and trace channel. At the end of this list, I have included a set of tentative acupuncture correspondences developed in concert with magician and Licensed Acupuncture Physician and researcher David Zietz. The procedural approach I now propose is as follows:
A.    All recipients of points chauds beyond a few should be invested with the “power and wisdom” of the ancient priesthoods, if not with the actual priesthoods themselves, as “containments” for the energies transmitted.
B.    All recipients should be encouraged to keep notes and share with other participants the results of empowerments as they progress, be they positive, negative or neutral.
C.    The points should be administered in “sacred space” or “power zones”. While room should be made for spontaneous empowerments, on the whole the recipients should study the points and their correspondences, the antient degrees with which they are associated, and should indicate themselves out of their own intuition and study and experience which points are to be empowered on a given occasion, by word and gesture, and should determine the number of points they are comfortable assimilating on a given occasion.
Refer to previously issued correspondences between known 97 points, location and uses.
In the accompanying table we present the points chauds and correspondences as originally developed for this research project in the 1990s, keyed on the 97 degree system of Memphis. The researcher can quick-reference the points and degrees in The Compleat Rite of Memphis.
Integrated with this table is information about corresponding acupuncture points, based on the work of David Zeitz, a Florida-based certified acupuncturist who has attempted to correlate these specific points with acupuncture points in common. Take note that there are far more acupuncture ‘points’ than the 90-plus degrees in this system, let alone systems of 33 or 9 degrees. It is conjectured that other points in acupuncture may eventually give clues to undiscovered or lost correspondences.
Finally, following the listing, I quote without comment some of the most exotic, speculative ideas considered in recent decades on the origin of magical knowledge in relationship to this system. These comments should be taken as speculation, and no more. Before the 1940s the Sumerian civilization was completely buried in the mists of history, though its effects on the science, religion and other aspects of Mesopotamian and other civilizations were known to us from successor cultures.

Where in Hell did Sexagismal numbers come from?

Maybe we should start with the question: What is a sexagismal number? We deal with sexagismal numbers all the time ( yes, that was a very bad pun). sexagismal numbers are based upon fractions of 60. Sexigismal numbers are the bases of our measures of degrees , minutes, seconds and hours, minutes, and seconds. Now we have a new question: How did the division of a circle and the division of a day come to have the same fractional components? The answer lies in a number system based on the sum of fractions of 60 that preceded both the notions of length of a day and division of the circle. As you might guess from that statement, sexagismal numbers are old; very old.

Greek astronomy held that the daily passage of the sun through the heavens relative to the fixed stars was a constant angular distance. The passage took approximately 360 days (hey, who’s counting?) and the concept of the degree was born. It’s interesting to note that we have lived with a system of measure based upon an incorrect estimate of the length of a year and a model of planetary motion that was just plain wrong.

To get to the first vestiges of a base 60 numeric system we have to go back almost 6000 yes to the region then known as Sumeria. Sumerians were the first city dwellers. They actively traded goods, owned land, and by all accounts, had their share of disputes about price, ownership and value. In short: same problems, different millennia. The trade issues necessitate the development of a written language, and numerical system. They weren’t worried about recording history, they were interested in recording profit. The mathematics of Sumeria preceded the invention of an alphabet by a few millennia, so it took a bit of time to decipher what they were recording and the numerology had a profound defect, which I’ll talk about in a moment. Like the modern Arabic notation we use, the Sumerian numerical system was ordered right to left. For comparison purposes, let’s take a look at our system first. The number 349 is really a short form of the numeric expression (3*100) + (4*10) + (1*9) + (0). The Sumerian expression 3,4,9 could mean (3*60) + (4*1) + (9/60) or it might mean (3*1) + (4/60) + (9/360). The numerology of Sumeria was context based, they didn’t have a position for zero. They could form numbers with extreme precision, but without a context, the magnitude remains unknown.

The Sumerians recorded their numbers on clay tablets using a stylus. Tables were calculated of fractions of 60 and numerical equivalents were derived for sums of fractions. The clay dried and the records, while somewhat hard to decipher, represented a monumental amount of accumulated calculation. This effort was, as they say, “cast in stone”. Over 4 millennia, Sumeria came and went, but those hardened tablets were recorded by many later civilizations .The beauty of the Sumerian system lay in it’s extreme precision in fractions. The factors of 60 are 1,2,3,4,5,6,10,12, 15, 20 and 30. In the base 10 system the factors are 1,2, and 5. There is no exact numerical representation for the value of 1/3 in a base 10 system but in Sumerian notation it is simply 20/60. The paradox of Sumeria is the extreme precision coupled with a total lack of accuracy. This a common mathematical thread which holds older civilizations together. The fractions that the Sumerians labor sly cast in stone would become the basis for calculation of astronomical movements 4000 years later by the Greeks, and used in timing calculations to land a man on the moon over 6 millennia later.
FURTHER NOTES ON 360 ° THEORY OF POINTS CHAUDS

“Origin. The Degree symbol was originally the Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbol for the sun. The Egyptian year was only 360 days long and the circle was given …”

The Mathematics

The ancient cultures divided the sky into 36 “night stations” of stars. These could be divided into a total of 108 (36 x 3) segments or sars (Latvian zar- = “branch”) for better detail. I simply calibrated the data by potentiating 108 by 10 to get 1080 (= 360 x 3) and then dividing by 3. This was applied to the individual “reigns” of the (Sumerian) kings. to get the degrees of arc of the circle.
For example, we potentiate 20 sars x 10 = 200. Then we divide by 3, which gives 66.66 degrees (of 360 degrees). When we do this with all of the lengths of reign, the total is 360°. Hence, the ancients are simply “sectioning” their ancient heavenly “clock” of stars. therefore
I.
Each length of “reign” of a Sumerian “son of God”applies to a particular NAMED “heavenly” region of the 360-degree “circle” of heaven.
II.
The length of “reign” listed for each alleged “king” is the distance in heliacal rising star days between consecutive “NAMES” on the list of kings. These names are identified in detail subsequently as specific stars in the heavens, moving within these six “heavenly houses”, which 6 preceded the division of the heavens into 12.

The current official Iranian calendar begins on the vernal equinox as determined by astronomical calculations for the Iran Standard Time meridian.
A meridian is an imaginary arc on the Earth’s surface from the North Pole to the South Pole that connects all locations running along it with a given longitude. The position of a point on the meridian is given by the latitude. Each meridian is perpendicular to all circles of latitude at the  (52.5°E or GMT+3.5h). This determination of starting moment is more accurate than the Gregorian calendar.The Gregorian calendar is the internationally accepted civil calendar. It was first proposed by the Calabrian doctor Aloysius Lilius, and decreed by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom the calendar was named, on 24 February 1582 by the papal bull Inter gravissimas because it is synchronized with the vernal equinox year, but requires consulting an astronomical almanac. One of the longest chronological records in human history, the Iranian calendar has been modified time and again during its history to suit administrative, climatic, and religious purposes.

In English the current calendar is sometimes called “Solar Hejri” calendar, and its years are designated AP, short for Anno Persico. The Iranian year usually begins within a day of 21 March of the Gregorian calendar. To find the corresponding year of the Gregorian calendar, add 621 or 622 (depending on the time of the year) to a Solar Hejri year.

“…the Gnostic consciousness, the mysticism of the Eucharist is a fundamental expression of the principles of Eros and Logos.  Eros is the law of sexual joining or coming together and Logos is the law of rational structure or otganization of energy into patterns…..The descent of the divine into the events of human history is made possible by the existence of a succession of bishops, which extends back to the ancient priesthoods as well as at the time of the Christ and the Holy Apostles…The Old Roman Church … did teach the existence of such a (secret) map to be found in the body of the chela, which sowed actually where there were differences between the ideals or true placement of the powers in their collection of pacquets and what was the actual result of the process of incarnation” Michael Bertiaux

“…I made use of some inner drive and developed on the physical plane a particular structure of lattices and connective circuits, which were probably latent in an otherwise purely verbal system…That rather lifeless system, which contained some rather lifeless Egyptian roots, was really quite remarkable. It was the design for the computer and energy system of what we might now be tempted to call something like a UFO object or projection form some empirical or chaotic marma; but which at that time, as strange as it might seem to the uninformed reader of these matters, was posing rather inconspicuously as an Egyptian Rite of Ancient Freemasonry with the name of ‘Memphis-Misraim.’” Michael Bertiaux 97°

“Sumerians have the distinction of being the earliest inhabitants of the Fertile Crescent region.  Beginning 8,000-years B.C.E., Sumerian culture realized a priest-astronomer class, improved agrarian techniques and developed the first sexagesimal (base 60) numbering system.”  Clark Nelson

“In 1936, a tablet was excavated some 200 miles from Babylon.  Here one  should make the interjection that the Sumerians were first to make one of   man’s greatest inventions, namely, writing; through written communication,   knowledge could be passed from one person to others, and from one   generation to the next and future ones.  They impressed their cuneiform   (wedge-shaped) script on soft clay tablets with a stylus, and the tablets   were then hardened in the sun.  The mentioned tablet, whose translation   was partially published only in 1950, is devoted to various geometrical   figures, and states that the ratio of the perimeter of a regular hexagon  to the circumference of the circumscribed circle equals a number which in  modern notation is given by 57/60 + 36/(60^2) (the Babylonians used the   sexagesimal system, i.e., their base was 60 rather than 10).

“ The Babylonians knew, of course, that the perimeter of a hexagon is   exactly equal to six times the radius of the circumscribed circle, in fact   that was evidently the reason why they chose to divide the circle into 360  degrees (and we are still burdened with that figure to this day).  The tablet, therefore, gives … Pi = 25/8 = 3.125.
“So that’s who gave us the 360 degrees in the circle.  See, assignment of degree-measure to angles is somewhat arbitrary.  Some choices are more natural than others, though, and when you’re working in base 60, 6×60 is a pretty natural choice.” Petr Beckmann
“The initiatory pageants, once celebrated with ceremonies and ritual in Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt, and Mesopotamia, are now known to have taken place in one form or another in many countries and on most continents. The goal was to unfold consciousness, urging it on to heights of which it was formerly unaware, for the aim of the Mysteries has ever been a “discipline and stimulus to virtue” William R. Laudahn

Sumerians, aliens and Voyager 2

    10.12.2005    URL: http://english.pravda.ru/science/tech/9369-sumerians-0

    Ancient Sumerians possessed extensive knowledge of the Solar system without telescopes
    In August of 1986, Voyager Two, a U.S. interstellar probe launched in 1977, began sending to Earth the first close-ups of planet Neptune. Scientists at a laboratory of jet propulsion in Pasadena, California, found a lot of amazing data while studying the pictures. First, a color scheme of Neptune surprised the researchers. It was bright blue with a few spots of white clouds. Second, a wide inclination angle of the rotation axis of the planet, which indicated a strong magnetic field, ample resources of internal heat, and a liquid core. Given the data and pictures sent by Voyager from the vicinity of Uranus in 1986, and information on Jupiter and Saturn sent by the probe some time earlier, the latest achievements of the spacecraft enabled us to take a closer look at the solar system the way we never did before.
    Were we the first ones who managed to observe most distant planets of our solar system?
    Linguist and historian Zachariah Sychin believes that data from Voyager merely confirms his predictions first published in a book titled The Twelfth Planet. The book was published in 1976.
    Sychin also believes that data obtained by the probe agree with the writings of the ancient Sumerians, the writings made 6,000 years ago. The civilization of the Sumerians emerged in Mesopotamia (now a part of Iraq) around 4000 B.C. According to Sychin, the Sumerians invented a wheel, a furnace for roasting earthenware, and an irrigation system. More importantly, they invented the basic concepts of astrology. They used cuneiform writing for putting down their discoveries on clay tablets, statuettes and stone cylinders with mirror engravings of the symbols and drawings. Positive images were produced by rolling the cylinders over the soft clay.
    Sychin had been studying articles of the Sumerian civilization for more than 30 years. One day he found a rare stone cylinder in a museum of West Berlin. Apart from the image of a god giving a plow to humankind, the cylinder also had a startling chart of the heavens showing the planets with the Sun in the center. In total, the chart contained 12 planets, the Sun and Moon inclusive.
    The researcher was astounded when he saw the image of Uranus transmitted by Voyager Two in the January of 1986. The Sumerian description of the planet – mash.sig – meaning “bright greenish”- almost matched the greenish blue picture of Uranus on his TV screen. Sychin’s translation of the Sumerian expression “hum.ba” read: “marsh plants.” He believes it indicates the presence of hot semi-liquid material that was discovered on Neptune three years later. The Sumerian regarded Uranus as Neptune’s twin brother. Data gathered by the probe seemed to confirm the point. Not unlike Uranus, Neptune’s color is bright blue, the planet has a strong magnetic field, a hot semi-liquid core and plenty of water
    The question is: how could the Sumerians know about the above things in days of old when there were neither telescopes nor satellites? Sychin claims he can answer the question. According to him, the Sumerians received secret tips from the aliens who the planet Nibiru, the twelfth planet sitting between Jupiter and Mars on that Berlin cylinder. The aliens allegedly visited Earth repeatedly every 3000 years. “It is all in the texts including the myth about Anki and Earth,” says Sychin. Andy Cheng, a researcher from the Voyager Two mission liaison team, admits that many similarities between the two planets do exist, the planets might as well be called “the twins.” As regards the all the other statements by Sychin, they “just astonish me,” as Mr. Cheng put it. “Finding water on Uranus and Neptune was not a mind-blowing experience. And all the planets but Mars and Venus have liquid cores. We also expected to find a magnetic field. The color of the planets ceased to be a mystery years ago,” said Mr. Cheng. Moreover, he believes that a planet X would be devoid of any life forms if it really existed in the solar system because of it would be located too faraway from the Sun.
    Mr. Cheng believes that the cylinder probably contained only the stylized images of random stars which by no means should be interpreted as a precise chart of the heavens. Francesca Roshberg-Halton, a leading expert in Sumerology at the University of Notre Dame, used a stronger word for her comment: “rubbish.” “The cuneiform characters can be interpreted in a most outrageous way. In particular, some inexperienced deciphers can mess things up. There is no such thing as the Sumerian astrology,” said Dr. Roshberg-Halton. She also believed that Sychin made several blunders. “The Sumerians were aware of only seven planets including the Sun and the Moon. Therefore, the twelve planets are out of the question. The radiant star in the center of the picture is not the Sun, it is Venus,” said she.

Tau Roger – Photographer

Tau Roger is a photographer working with conventional “analog”
methods using film and traditional darkroom materials. All of the works
in this show are silver gelatin prints made optically from film
negatives using a traditional enlarger.  A network engineer by
profession,  such photography and darkroom work represent a welcome
change from over-immersion in the digital world.  He works primarily in
medium and large format film producing 2.25″x2.25″ and 4″x5″ negatives.
For landscapes and more formal portraits the 4×5 view camera is his
preferred tool, partly for the greatly increased print quality of large
negatives but also because the deliberate style required by this type of
camera encourages looking carefully and thoughtfully at each image. For
casual portraits and fast changing subjects he often uses a medium
format camera producing 2.25″x2.25″ negatives. This camera can be easily
hand held and is much faster in use than the 4×5 while still providing
much higher image quality than 35mm.

Caleb Storms – Photographer

The photography of Caleb Storms shows the full range of human
experience. Like a true visionary with his camera he dares to show us
the darkest parts of ourselves, the human experience raw, open and
exposed. With the gentleness of a great teacher, his photographs allow
us a glimpse into the beauty of everyday life, the beauty of awareness,
understanding and compassion. Described as “raw” and “uninhibited, he
doesn’t edit what he shoots, and he shoots what he sees. Nothing is
posed or staged, and it really is a window into his eclectic life.
Unedited, unabashed, and unapologetic. The Urban Zen photographer Caleb
Storms captures more than just visual images – he captures experiences –
experiences that draw you to a place of deep self reflection and
awareness. With a fearless eye for capturing the philosophical…he leaves
you not seeking the right answers, but rather challenges you to
consider are you asking the right questions?

Max Grimm – Artist

When I paint I am able to return to my childhood. I am reminded of my
first set of watercolors. My mother was fascinated by watching me
experiment with colors as they ran into each other on the paper. It is a
memory of innocence and creativity. This is something I try to
replicate each time squeeze out some acrylics and pick up a brush.

I am still amazed at the myriad of colors that can be created by
mixing the primaries. It is an alchemical gift for the eyes. I try to
hold no preconceived ideas as I begin the creative process. During the
nurturing of the work, there comes a point when the paint, ink and panel
become more than the sum of their parts and take on a life of their
own. As I am growing older and hopefully wiser, I am able to see my
personal evolution through the history of my love of creating art. From
my childhood doodlings up to the present mixed media works on wood
panel, I have been able to discover new parts of my heart and avenues of
the psyche. I am given the privilege of ability to create images that
transcend language. For this, I am most humbled and eternally grateful.

As must all living things, I believe that my art must grow through
discovery and expansion into new realms using new mediums. I am very
excited at the possibilities of digital photography, assemblage, collage
and the combination of mediums and technologies both old and new. I
have found it impossible to be unexcited and not in love with this gift
of art.

The Art of Max Grimm

J.M. VonKotterhausen – Artist

J.M. VonKotterhausen is a digital medium artist who is devoted to
exploring his medium as a tool for shamanic trance and initiatic states
of ecstasy, unearthing deeply ancestrally rooted cosmic encounters with
archetypal principles at work in the primitive and ancient mind. By the
processes involved with the mediumship, the artist is able to expand on
universal communion bearing the connectedness between all sentient and
creative beings. In doing so, the intent is to cultivate an environment
of appreciation for higher quality relations with oneself and the world,
at the level of dimensions visible and supposed, to direct harmoniously
these threads ever creatively intersecting to one heartbeat in unison
manifesting reality. The eye in use is compliment to the awareness of
one’s role in structuring the visionary body of Nature in Temperance of
Spirit.

Tau Naamah – Presenter

My Work has involved study in European and African Diasporic
herblore, rootwork and hoodoo, and initiated study and practice into
western hermeticism and ceremonial magick.  In addition, I am a student
of Taiji and Qigong as well as more external martial arts, and I have
been a serviteur of the loa for the last 20 years.  I began my training
in yoga in childhood, having been raised by parents with membership in
the Self-Realization Fellowship of Paramahansa Yogananda, and I began
guided training in European witchcraft and herblore in 1984 after
several abortive and immature attempts to practice it on my own through
reading what limited material was available to me at the time. My past
practical magickal training and involvement has dealt with the Sumerian
mythos and blood magick among other things.  I have extensive training
and experience in divination with the Tarot in particular. I grew up on
the Gulf Coast between Mobile and spending summers with my godparents in
New Orleans, Baton rouge, and Eunice (the New Orleans and Acadiana
regions of Louisiana) .

Michael Crowley – Presenter and Author

Mike Crowley was born in Wales in 1948. In 1966 a Tibetan lama took
Mike as his student and, in 1970, ordained him as a layman of the Kagyud
order. Gradually, over the next twenty years or so, it became evident
to Mike that sacramental drug-use was central to the earliest forms of
Vajrayana (i.e. tantric) Buddhism, the evidence being concealed in coded
language and word-play. Since that time, Mike has been investigating
the use of psychedelics within Vajrayana Buddhism, tracing its origins
to the Vedic soma rite and perhaps further, possibly as far back as the
Indus Valley culture (4,000 BCE). This research has been compiled into a
book, Secret Drugs of Buddhism, which will be made available online
soon.

Howard Pendragon Phillips – Presenter and Author

Not many years ago I was comparing the sudden end of a story that I
was reading, with my job that had moved to Mexico, when my wife said to
me; “that Book is Cursed”. It started to get good then the author died.
Another writer had picked it up and he died too. That was a challenge. I
realized that my response was to pick it up and finish it. I play folk
music so stealing a song was not new. But this was a book and I was not a
writer. I did not know then that I had joined an exclusive club. The HP
Lovecraft Circle of the Necronomicon Mythos. A few years went by of
hard work learning a new craft. My novella was finished, and I was more
than just hooked. I was stuffed, mounted and hanging on the wall.

APRIL 2011 ARABIA WORKING – SOME ACCOUNTS

May 24, 2011

APRIL ARABIA WORKING – SOME ACCOUNTS

THE ARABIA WORKING ON EASTER SUNDAY (BY COINCIDENCE)

A large turn out at Arabia brought us together for a Workshop (to be posted as a podcast…stay tuned!), extensive points Workings (see below) and a very powerful Healing Circle, so large we had to stand in a circle around Tau Ishaviva in the center, who was ailing (see below also) but who braved the climb and heat of the day anyway. Here is an extract of Tau AHA’s account of receiving the (many) remaing points of the known points chauds in out 97 degree system.


“I want to write a little before it leaves me about my experience Sunday with the points.  I received about 80 points from +D a +Isha. The receiving of the points itself was very interesting because I had so many done by two people with very different styles.  It was a good opportunity to really experience how this all works.  The first thing that I noticed that +Isha seemed to take an almost exclusive energy approach to it.  With her I felt an instant jolt then a slow build up of energy at each point.  Then the point would activate and the energy would seem to disperse.  With +D it was a more physical activation/stimulation of the point which seemed to cause a receptivity to the energy.  So it was a physical pressure followed by a burst of energy as the point awoke. The second thing of note is the loss of time that I seemed to experience.  I know that the process of activating all the points took a great deal of time only because of when we started and what time it was when we went down the mountain.  It only felt like about 10 minutes to me and there are whole sets of points that I have no recollection of being activated however, I could feel later that they were. After I felt definite shifts in consciousness as the points would find each other and build networks.  This manifested in time and space perception issues and sudden shifts in balance.  Once this passed I felt (and am still feeling) massive amounts of heat in certain parts of my body.  It started on my crown.  Then my hands and now my feet almost as though it is working its way back down my body.  When I say massive amounts, I mean it is uncomfortable to were shoes because of the heat flying out of my feet today. I will try to make more notes as I experience things. “

Tau AHA

When we formed our Healing Circle, Tau Ishaviva was in the center.  Here is an extract of her account.

“I woke up that morning not feeling well, the muscles in my neck,
sholders, and chest, above my breasts, were hurting and making it a
bit painful to take a deep breath. I took some Tylenol and decided to
go anyway, hell, I often feel like crap.

I sat in the center of the healing circle, alone, while the others
raised energy with the Om Hum Trom Re Ah (Allen, I can’t remember how
to spell it?). I felt the energy being generated. I have issues with
accepting things so I was focusing on the people that were mentioned
who need healing energy and distibuting it to them. Even though I did
that, after the circle was done I did feel much improved, for a while.

I gave a reading of a text I enjoy. Here is what I read:

“Dancing Into Truth”
I am Spirit on Earth and I dedicate myself to channeling Love and
Truth into my life. I am a source of Light in the living body of
creation, ever growing in unity with all, as the universe and I flow
harmoniously in change together.

Love is my nature, Truth is my will. The essential masculine and
feminine principles as the God and the Goddess in all their forms
dwell within me. The ecstacy of their intertwining is the divine spark
of life into my deepest nature.

I am a wild child, a responsible adult, and a wise elder. I encompass
within myself the wealth of human experience. I welcome the fullness
of life with its joy and sorrow, as I work and play. Accepting into
memory all suppressed experiences, I release them with Love and
Forgiveness.

I Love as I Will and strive to do my True Will. The Truth of my
experience and purity of my heart enable me to govern myself. I share
a vision with all people, building a world based on Freedom and
Cooperation.

The universe flows through me and I use this Power to Create, Nurture,
and Heal. My love embraces violence and pain, and transmutes them into
peace and inner growth. I respect the autonomy of each person and
choose not to interfere either by pity or harm.

I create my own reality with the way I respond to my experiences. My
Spiritual nature guides my ego and shapes all I think, feel, and say.
I lovingly and willingly surrender to the beauty and perfection of all
that I Am.

I feel my connection with all facets of this universe – the Earth, the
water, the sky, plants, animals, spirits and other beings. The Divine
within me recognizes and appreciates the Divine within you.

My mind is a messenger bearing inspiration and intuition. I am
sincere, I honor my word, and I fulfill my responsibilities to the
best of my ability. In perfect Love and perfect Trust, I share the
Truth within me.

Life’s experiences reflect my behavior as the web of cause and effect
constantly reminds me of my path. Whatever I send out returns
magnified. I use this feedback to stay in tune with my environment.

I am healthy, happy, and free as Earth’s abundance provides for all my
needs. I celebrate the cycles of change and recognize illness,
adversity, and confusion as opportunities to grow in Wisdom and
Understanding.

Realizing the grace of the divine within, I laugh, sing, and dance in
the ever-present now. I am birthing a new magickal being within myself
as part of the planetary transformation of consciousness and evolution
of homo sapiens into homo veritas. True human; as we join together to
become God/Goddess.

Then I helped +Dositheos give points to Tau AHA so I’ll talk about
what I feel when I give points. I don’t SEE them as some people do. I
can feel them, once I’ve placed my thumbs on the location, sometimes
moving it around a bit to get the exact place. So, after consulting
the printed chart of the points, I look on the person and figure out
where they should be, then I put my thumb there (sometimes between my
two fingers, if it feels practicle, other times not for legistics
sake) and feel for the point. Then I open up my crown chakra and let
the universal energy flow down into me, I direct it to the ground to
mingle with earth energy and then back up my body, through my heart
chakra, down my arms and out my thumb into the point. I just open up
and let it happen, it’s all good.   : )

I suppose if any interpretation of the energy is done by me it’s
probably of the compassion type cause that’s my thing.    : )

I didn’t feel drained because I was letting the universal energy flow
through me instead of using my own.

As we started getting ready to leave for dinner though I think the
effects of the healing were beginning to wear. I got REALLY hungry.
The next day I woke up sick, fever and all. I really don’t think it
had anything to do with giving the points, it was coming on before
that. I was hoping that I hadn’t transmitted anything of my illness to
Tau AHA by giving him points. Maybe, since he said he had a clearing
out of his body on, I think that was Tuesday?, two days later. Maybe
that was him throwing off whatever I had. Glad you didn’t get sick Tau
AHA.

That’s my report.

VERNAL EQUINOX FREE ILLUMINIST GATHERING ON ARABIA MOUNTAIN

A brief report on the events on Arabia Mountain at the Vernal Equinox, March 20 2011
The essentials— The long anticipated  Consecration of now-bishop Brother  (now Tau) Max was at long-last manifested!.  I performed the consecration, with Tau Dositheos and Tau Indigo assisting.  We also did point Work as request, conducted a powerful and spirited healing circle, and signed and witnessed two new Charters, that of XM360 Lodge (familiar to many of our Facebook friends) and our first Lodge in Japan. We started out with a core group on the March wind-swept Consecration Rock on Arabia Mt, met up with others in the Nature Preserve, and still others at our traditional Indian banquet which followed.  Much accomplished, much to be done. Next Free Illuminist event on Arabia Mountain is scheduled for April 24, 2011.

Mt. Arabia Gathering –

1 November 2010

An account from Tau Dositheos, with illustrations by Tau Tula


On 1 November 2010 Ormus Lodge

http://www.lightofthegnosis.org/ormus.htm

had the great honor of hosting a gathering at Mount Arabia in Lithonia, Georgia USA. This gathering was part of a series of combined events

http://lightofthegnosis.org/blog/2010/10/28/events/

that were hosted by various Congregational Illuminist nodes in free communion.


Mt. Arabia

This post is limited to just one of these events, yet I want to send out a very special thanks to the entire crew of Templi de Niger Sol for initiating the idea of this shared week-long esoteric experience and for all your hard work seeing it through to completion, Bishop +Thomas Langley for his  help with and participation in the Litany of Saints, Ezili Roots

http://www.eziliroots.com/

for hosting Fet Gede which is so dear to my heart, Lama Michael Crowley for his thoughtful participation at Fet Gede on the 30th, for leading us through a Chenrezig Sadhana at Kwan Yin House on the 31st, and for blessing us with a Mountain Incense Offering at the sacred power-spot (Mt. Arabia) on the 1st. I also want to thank Tau Aron for all his efforts in bringing Lama to our city, Tau Ishaviva for providing the means to record the audio, Tau Tula for the wonderful photos and to the facilitator of the Assembly of the Knowledge & Wisdom of SolomonT Allen Greenfield – for your tireless Work in support of Congregational Illuminism.

TAU DOSITHEOS’ TALK ON CONGREGATIONAL ILLUMINISM

There are two audio tracks below.

The first audio track is an informal talk I gave about scrying the Rite of Memphis Degrees on November 1st at Mt. Arabia. You can also read the related outline and compare it to this reference document.  For supplemental reading in regards to scrying, see Benjamin Rowe’s document.

[It is unfortunate, but this recording had to be edited to remove valuable feedback from T Allen Greenfield, Tau Tula and Tau Ishaviva because the recording device was not able to pick up their dialog good enough to hear it on the playback. I had to cut out the inaudible bits.  Next time we will remember to pass the recorder around when others are speaking].

The second audio track is actually two separate recordings of Lama Michael Crowley edited into one track. The track opens with Lama Crowley chanting two forms of mantra for Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) followed by a mantra for Padmasambhava. The next segment is a recording of Lama Crowley performing the Mountain Incense Offering on November 1st at Mt. Arabia. The practice for the Mountain Incense Offering is said to originate with Padmasambhava, affectionately known as Guru Rinpoche.

SORT OF THE ROOTS OF OCCULT NAZIS sans HESS

November 26, 2010
Current location: Black Forest Germany
Current mood: amused
Current music: “Wonderland is dead” – Vril

SORT OFANCIENT ALIENS – VRIL
Well, it was at the Redstone Arsenal, not Wright-Patterson AFB (which I’ve never visited) but – aside from some people’s leaps and the conspicuous omission of Rudolph Hess (Vril Member from the start  to the end – died in Spandau Prison under mysterious circumstances at 93) it restates the case with a bit of my commentary first advanced on “UFO Hunters”.

CLICK HERE FOR EPISODE “ANCIENT ALIENS & THE THIRD REICH”

Vril Society

as interpreted at Crystallinks

In November of 1996 I received a video about World War II Germany pre and post and a secret organization named Vril its name linked to Atlantean time lines and one of its language composed of sounds and clicks.

The video mentioned that in Germany at the turn of the century and particularly after WW I many secret societies developed. One of these groups was the Vril Society.

In 1917 four members of the Vril society met in a cafe in Vienna. There was one woman and three men. The woman was a ‘spiritual medium’. They met under a veil of mystery and secrecy. They discussed secret revelations, the coming of the new age, the Spear of Destiny, the magical violet black stone, and making contact with ancient peoples and distant worlds.

Their source of power was the Black Sun, an infinite beam of light which, though invisible to the human eye, exists in anti-matter.

The Vril emblem became the Black Sun, a secret philosophy thousand of years old provided the foundation on which the occult practioners of the Third Reich would later build. The Black Sun symbol can be found in many Babylonian and Assyrian places of worship. They depicted the Black Sun – the godhead’s inner light in the form of a cross. This was not much different from the German’s Knight’s Cross.

The woman allegedly channeled information from aliens after which the Thule was crteated. they went on to build something called the Vril Machine. It allegedly was a saucer shape interdimensional time travel machine. Their first flight was allegedly in 1934.

 

Much of their work was done in the Black Forest.

Thule Society members were allegedly the first group to attempt the back-engineering of an extraterrestrial spacecraft. “A German writer, John Von Helsing, describes the discovery of a crashed saucer in the Black Forest in 1936 and says that this technology was taken and combined with the information the Vril Society had received through channeling and was made into a further project called the Haunebu.

German aircraft historian Henry Stevens states, “Haunebu 1 was allegedlythe first large flying saucer developed in Germany. According to plans allegedly obtained from classified German SS files, the Haunebu 1 was approximately seventy-five feet in diameter and probably lifted off for the first time in August 1939, a few weeks before the outbreak of World War II.

The Coming Race (original title), also reprinted as Vril: The Power of the Coming Race is a novel published in 1870 by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. The novel is an early example of science fiction, sometimes cited as the first of this genre. However, many early readers believed that its account of a superior subterranean master race and the energy-form called Vril was accurate, to the extent that some theosophists accepted the book as truth. Furthermore, since 1960 there is a conspiracy theory about a secret Vril-Society.

The origins of the Nazi version of the theory of the master race were in 19th century racial theories of Count Arthur de Gobineau, who argued that cultures degenerate when distinct races mix. It was believed at this time that southern European peoples were racially mixed with non-European Moors from across the Mediterranean Sea, while Northern Europeans remained pure. Proponents of Nordic theory further argued that Nordic peoples had developed innate toughness and determination due to the harsh, challenging climate in which they evolved. Thus the racial ideal of these theorists was the tall, blond and blue-eyed Nordic individual.

The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer was one of the earliest proponents of the theory presenting a hierarchical racial model of history, attributing civilizational primacy to the “white races” who gained their sensitivity and intelligence by refinement in the rigorous North:

 

    The highest civilization and culture, apart from the ancient Indians and Egyptians, are found exclusively among the white races; and even with many dark peoples, the ruling caste or race is fairer in colour than the rest and has, therefore, evidently immigrated, for example, the Brahmans, the Incas, and the rulers of the South Sea Islands. All this is due to the fact that necessity is the mother of invention because those tribes that emigrated early to the north, and there gradually became white, had to develop all their intellectual powers and invent and perfect all the arts in their struggle with need, want and misery, which in their many forms were brought about by the climate. This they had to do in order to make up for the parsimony of nature and out of it all came their high civilization.

Nevertheless, such theorists usually accepted that considerable variety of hair and eye colour existed even within the racial categories they recognised. Contrary to a popular myth, the Nazis themselves did not discriminate against Germans who were not blonde or blue-eyed, or had only one of these features. Adolf Hitler and most Nazi officials (not to mention most Germans at the time) had dark hair and were considered to be “Aryans.”

The postulated superiority of these people was said to make them born leaders, or a “master race”. Other authors included Guido von List (and his associate Lanz von Liebenfels) and the British racial theorist Houston Stewart Chamberlain, all of whom felt that the white race and Germanic peoples were superior to others, and that given the purification of the white race and German people from the races who were “polluting” it, a new Millenarian age of Aryan god-men would arrive.

The term Aryan derives from the ancient peoples who lived in Iran (see also Iranian peoples) and the Indus Valley. Following the ideas of Gobineau and others, the Nazi theorist Alfred Rosenberg claimed that these were a dynamic warrior people who originated in northern climates, from which they migrated south, eventually reaching India. They were supposed to be the ancestors of the ancient Germanic tribes, who shared their warrior values. Building from Nietzsche, who stated “it is quite in order that we possess no religion of oppressed Aryan races, for that is a contradiction: a master race is either on top or it is destroyed” (The Will to Power, 145), Rosenberg claimed that Christianity was an alien Semitic slave-morality inappropriate to the warrior Aryan master race and thus supported a melange of aspects of Vedic and Zoroastrian teachings, along with pre-Christian European paganism, which he considered to be distinctively Aryan in character.

In Nazi Germany, marriage of an “Aryan” with an “Untermensch” was forbidden. To maintain the purity of the Germanic master race, eugenics was practiced. In order to eliminate “defective” citizens, the T-4 Euthanasia Program was administered by Karl Brandt to rid the country of the mentally retarded or those born with genetic deficiencies, as well as those deemed to be racially inferior. Additionally, a program of compulsory sterilization was undertaken and resulted in the forced operations of hundreds of thousands of individuals. Many of these policies are generally seen as being related to what eventually became known as the Holocaust.

The concepts involved in this theory of Germanic superiority is strongly contested. Most modern scholars see no connection between Indo-European population movements and alleged “Nordic” racial characteristics.

Fictional Representations

Aryan master race ideology was common throughout the educated and literate strata of the Western world until after World War II. Such theories are commonplace in early 20th Century fantasy literature. For example, a distinct belief in the status of Aryan humanity as the “master race” underlies much of the work of fantasists such as H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard’s literature. Howard’s most famous creation, Conan the Barbarian is supposed to have lived between the fall of Atlantis and the “rise of the sons of Arya” (i.e. the Aryans). In his story Wings In The Night, Howard also wrote,

 

    The ancient empires fall, the dark-skinned peoples fade and even the demons of antiquity gasp their last, but over all stands the Aryan barbarian, white-skinned, cold-eyed, dominant, the supreme fighting man of the earth.

In other cases, while the phrase “master race” itself is seldom used, the inhumane and barbaric treatment of those not belonging to the “master race” in the fictional fascisms seems to imply that such an ideology is present. S.M. Stirling’s Domination of the Draka is a fictional empire which is explicitly based on the “master race” concept. After World War I in the Draka universe, the Draka citizens adopt an ideology which calls for all non-Drakan humanity to be reduced to chattel slavery. The Chosen, from Stirling’s previous General series (which no doubt inspired the Draka) portrays perhaps a more realistic look at the “master race” concept, including the consequences of such a policy on a society. The Chosen, who treat other peoples with contempt, calling them “animals”, are eventually destroyed by their own slaves, the lowest of the low, despite the Chosen’s superior weapons, training, and centuries of eugenic breeding. The fictional fascist “Freedom Party” that rules the Confederate States of America in Harry Turtledove’s American Empire series of novels also echoes the concept.

The James Bond film Moonraker is another fictionalized account of a master race – the Adolf Hitler-like megalomanic villain Sir Hugo Drax pre-selected a diverse group of astronaut trainees to become the progenitors of a master race that will repopulate Earth after the planet has been nerve-gassed. Similar ideas are explored in science fiction. An episode of The X-Files is entitled Herrenvolk. It presents the story of Nazi scientists saved by Americans after the War – during the Operation Paperclip – and their connections with aliens, which led them to successfully create a superior race of alien/men hybrids. Likewise, in The Other Side, an episode of Stargate SG-1, the Eurondans are portrayed as white supremacists who have created a purified Nordic-like population, planning to annihilate other peoples, who they refer to as “Breeders” because of their indiscriminate breeding, in rejection of eugenics.

Enter the underworld
Enter vril-ya enter vril-ya
A step down the stairway
Enter vril-ya enter vril-ya

Inside earth there was a land of mystery
Lighted up by the black sun of underground
In this world they got the key to time and space
And forces too strong for mankind to know.

O land vril-ya

When we unlock the hidden lore of vril
We fold space and travel across the time.
With this force man will become like god
And rule the earth through the light of the black sun.

Enter the underworld
Enter vril-ya enter vril-ya
A step down the stairway
Enter vril-ya enter vril-ya

Enter vril-ya man of sorat
Enter vril-ya enter it now.
