Legends-Part II




"In a mainly materialist and secular age, what would appear to be extra-terrestrial or highly advanced phenomena, might be in reality, spiritual."
-Dean Koontz,The Taking


Phobias are very strange. Considering myself, sometimes at night, like many others I assume, have a tendency to an inner dark churning ,a 'pregnant' fear of driving, of poverty or of death, that in itself becomes a new fear , that is of losing control.
I usually just rack it up to tiredness, and in the morning I smile (not laugh), at my silly childlike frays, but not without the knowledge that sometimes- in some people those silly nuances become full malignant nightmares.

These days, one might not be considered odd to have atomosophobia, - the fear of atomic war, or worse-Botanophobia - the fear of (Bush) plants.

The Necronomicon was first mentioned in Lovecraft's 1923 short story "The Hound", though hints of it (or similar books) appear as far back as "The Statement of Randolph Carter" (1919). In the stories, the book is dangerous to read because it is often harmful to the health and sanity of its readers. For this reason, libraries keep it under lock and key.

The NECRONOMICON, (The Book of the Dead or The Book of the Sleeping) , is according to Lovecraft's tales, a volume written in Damascus in the Eighth Century, A.D., by a person called the "Mad Arab", Abdhul Alhazred.
It is here, we find the many strange, exciting and mystifying, but dangerous references to the gates and doorways.

In continuing our segue, we find that Aliestor Crowley is rumored to have found an actual copy, and commented on it:

"Our work is therefore historically authentic; the rediscovery of the Sumerian Tradition."

THOTH in Coptic is the name given to the Egyptian God of Magick and Wisdom, TAHUTI, who was evoked by both the Golden Dawn and by Crowley himself (and known to the Greeks as Hermes, from whence we get "Hermetic"). AZAG-THOTH is, therefore, a Lord of Magicians, but of the "Black" magicians, or the sorcerers of the "Other Side".

It is interesting to note that Crowley's Tarot was named THOTH, with exquisite detail in each card given, especially in the Major Arcana.
Please keep in mind that the practice of the TAROT is not necessarily a pursuit in finding the latest stock picks, but a garnering and focusing of energies that synergizes the ideas of what you are now, where you are now and the probability of where you might be going.

This possibility however, opens up a new can of worms:

Peter Levenda (Sinister Forces):

"If Church and State are not separate in reality, into the world of action, then where does Science stand? Is it an outgrowth of the church, and a tool of the State? Or does the answer lie in the cults, the secret societies, the occult orders of yesterday and today? What did the CIA learn during its long investigation of psychology and the paranormal? Why did they shred all the documentation of this that they could find?"


On the Senate floor, Senator Ted Kennedy said:

"The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over 30 universities and institutions were involved in an 'extensive testing and experimentation' program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens 'at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign."
(One Government subsidizing university:PEAR)

So be it that us "Babyboomers" will reap the benifits.


"Yet 1947 is also in the running as the pivotal year of the postwar period. Many of the issues that define that generation owe their conception to the events of that year. 1947 was the year the CIA was created, and the penetrating of secrets; it was the year of the famous UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico and the subsequent concealing of secrets; the year the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, and the exposure of secrets. It was the year Winston Churchcill made his famous "Iron Curtain" speech, thus declaring the beginning of the Cold War. Its' the year that the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) begins its full-scale investigation of Hollywood. It is the year that inventor Arthur Young leaves Bell Helicopter for a full-time study in paranormal phenomena. It is the year that the US Navy begins Project CHATTER, the search for a viable truth serum, a magic potion to unlock the secrets of the mind. It is the year the Corporal is launched: America's answer to thte V-2 rocket, compliments of Jack Parsons and the rest of the JPL rocketeers."

Working was in the wings for the next year's celebration of the first time Israel would become a country since King David's & son Solomon.
And with the rise of the CIA, the rise of MKLUTRA and a plethora of other dastadley deeds.


"Sarah, if the American people had ever known the truth about what we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the streets and lynched."
-George Bush Senior speaking in an interview with Sarah McClendon in December 1992


It is interesting to note that with the first atomic explosions occuring in the physical universe, we might also suggest that there have been the beginnings of occultic phenomena of atomic proportions since then.
It is a commonly held belief that in churches and covens, that the more "focused use of energy"-people- there are, the more spectacular results. Is it strange to suggest that the proliferation of magick themes in games, books and movies today is somehow related to the missionary works of Parson, Crowley, Gardner and others?

In 1975 the United States Government, namely the CIA, first began their investigation into what is known today as remote viewing. The remote viewing (RV) work at SRI (1972-1990) and at SAIC (1990-1995) is unique in the history of the field of parapsychology. For one thing, it is the only long-term psi- research program known to have been funded by the U.S. government (specifically, the Department of Defense and different intelligence agencies, such as the CIA); second, its raison d'être was, from the outset, driven by an interest in applications, i.e., the use of psi for intelligence operations; third, because of its sensitive nature, a majority of this work has been - and still is - classified.Nevertheless, a recent Congressionally Directed Action induced a declassification of a small portion of the documents, as well as leading to an evaluation of the 24-year government-sponsored program, known as STARGATE.

The raw data indicate that the viewer had identified a Ring around Jupiter, a sketch of which appears in the raw data (presented ahead) and is also verbally identified.Conventional scientific wisdom held that Jupiter did not possess any Rings. This particular datum was one reason the experiment was laughed out of town by many.
The existence of the Ring was discovered and confirmed in early 1979, six years after the Jupiter Probe had taken place.Dr. Puthoff, the SRI project's director, was first notified of the discovery by telephone from one of the JPL astrophysicists analyzing the NASA data -- and who was also one of the original guardians of the raw data. The existence of the Ring "came as a complete surprise to scientists." One such radical experiment, the "Jupiter Probe," took place in 1973 at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) under the excellent auspices of Dr. H.E. Puthoff and Mr. Russell Targ (both esteemed physicists) and other competent scientists of the Radio Physics Laboratory. --
Lest we run full boar into conspiracy theory, we should not forget the documented evidence that the government-our government- used our tax money to help further the cause of 'freedom'.
Dr. Cameron's research still lives in the halls of infamy.

So now we must ask ourselves: Why would the government spend so much money and time on something that was supposed to only be reserved for science fiction writers or nut case UFO groupies?

One of President Carter's promise(s) was to open "CIA classified" information on aspects of the UFO controvesy, which in later years , it denied of ever existing:

The Carter promise of a complete release of UFO information, made before the election, changed slowly until in a statement made in a letter written by Deputy Press secretary Walter Wurfel, the campaign pledge to release UFO information had completely disappeared.

"He (Carter) is committed to the fullest possible openness in government and would support full disclosure of material that was not defense sensitive that might relate to UFOs. He did not, however, pledge to "make every piece of information concerning the UFOs available to the public."

Now, where have I heard that response before?

Jacques Vallee:

"There is a feeling that I get in the course of my investigations of being in the presence of a form of consciousness that is truly remarkable. That consciousness has a great sense of absurdity, and also a great sense of humor."

It is then, not without surprise that the first card of the THOTH Major Arcana, WHICH IS NUMBERED ZERO:
The Trickster, the FOOL.

AJ,
Great post, AJ. I can relate to night creeps, especially of the atomophobic type. I wish I could wake up and shake them off. I would sleep much more. Just as we do not like to consider our own mortality, we also seem able to ignore the nuclear threat. "Hair trigger" alert. People with codes for nukes during SOTU. Its like a background spectre, a shadow that people don't talk about or like to think about but is inescapable.
Oddly enough I got a copy of the book at my "Sweet Sixteen" birthday and never knew who added it to the presents or why, and figured it was my dad trying to piss off relatives.(I got Anton LaVey too) haven't thought about Lovecraft in quite some time, or Crowley, but recently I started reading again and then your last post pushed me some more.Anyway, I love this post too and need to think more about your words.
Maybe I'm showing my age (thirties)-
When you were younger, did you read L'Engle books? I truly think that my disturbed paranoid-liberal mental state began with those books, and the "Mad Arab". (and quite possibly my love for nerds, after the genius neighbor boy had to explain the tesseract to me, because he was like ELEVEN and read Carl Sagan, and he could answer ANYTHING) It's interesting to reflect on our influences, our fears, and what drives us to think the way we do today. I don't know enough about the 'occult' to draw sincere conclusions. I just try to be open to as much as I can.Thanks AJ, as always, for your writing. I love the way you bring a unique perspective to current events and conspiracy!

Thanks for your kind comments! An 11 yr old was explaining these things? Where were his parents?
Am I to understand that you got THE LeVey book from your Dad?
Creeepy indeed. There are some interesting things that have transpired in the past( and current) from those wild days in SF.

I'm not sure who got them, and the eleven year old had professor parents, at a University not far from our neighborhood, so I guess that was nothing unusual. But I will say I had trouble wrapping my brain around it as a kid, trouble NOW.

I wasn't raised in a Satanic household, no creepiness! No, no. But I grew up in a humorous household, my dad's a harmless Unitarian! We always had people living with us, staying with us, so there was always a lot of conversation that was helpful. Books everywhere- even controversial ones.

I think for me, it was more about a deep superficial love for Led Zeppelin- that fueled my interest. Wish I could say it was more intellectual than that! (sigh)

I somehow sense that I stumbled into the middle of something here. And my senses tell me it is not the definitive rectum of Charles Grodin. And while that may be what my senses tell me my head could just as well be fooling me.

As to the Bush family. Wow, do we really want to know all of that? Is it just a coincidence that Hinkley, the guy who shot Reagan, was more closely associated with Bush than anyone in the mainstream press has ever let anyone know? And remember the story of the babies taken from their incubators in Kuwait and left on the hospital floor to die. The advertising company that ran that whole story passed Congress was run by another Bush crony. Naturally the whole story was false. I don't think we will ever get the definitive Bush story.
So what is it that I am here to tell you? I really don't know.

That was very interesting.

Something else that could just be internet babble, but that seems interesting to think about... supposedly a young Yalie Bush and his friends were at the airport where JFKJr.'s plane was not too long before he crashed. Part of the rumor is that like JFK, his son may have been taken out by them, too, but here's the part you'll probably have interest in...
supposedly JFK met a lady (involved with one of the programs you mentioned in this post) who was later murdered, but who supposedly mothered his child first...

I bet there is a slim chance of this being true, but it's interesting to think about...
