Lucifer's Technologies: Contact

As the Globalist agenda goes from a gallop to a stampede in 2016, it should be noted that the world being unrolled over our heads right now was previewed in many ways via the Contactees and abductees of previous decades.

I've long suspected that "Contactees" were a disinfo operation. The effect they had seemed to hew a little too closely to the desired outcome of the CIA's Robertson Panel, that the UFO phenomenon be demystified and made an object of ridicule.

Seeing hamburger salesmen and retired mechanics trotted out before the media with their tales of glammed-up Venusians filled that bill quite nicely.


But there was a darker undercurrent to the Contactee message; most of them were pitching some kind of cosmic authoritarianism with their delusional accounts of flying saucer joyrides. This impulse would have a major impact on the nascent New Age movement.

The best-known Contactee, George Adamski, preached a message of cosmic Communism:

Adamski was considered to be an outrageous subversive, and is alleged to have said that the alien form of government was very different from the democracy of the United States and was most probably a Communist system. Adamski also predicted that Russia would dominate the world, which would usher in a 1,000-year era of peace on Earth.
But if Adamski were such a subversive, how was he able to wrangle a private audience with the Pope, who apparently gave him a special medallion as an honorific?

Moreover, his co-writer Desmond Leslie apparently had somewhat of an occult pedigree. We saw how Leslie cited the avowed Globalist Alice Bailey in the introduction to he and Adamski's book, but his father, Sir Shane Leslie, apparently had more exotic interests still:

"Sir Shane's closest friends at this time included the acclaimed paranormal novelist, M. R. James and the eccentric Lord Tredegar, who dabbled in the black arts, under the influence of Aleister Crowley's teachings, at his country estate in Wales." -- Nick Redfern, Final Events 


Leslie would come to associate with another of the "George" Contactees, in this case George King, the British-based head of the UFO cult, the Aetherius Society. Like many UFO cultists, King would simply polish up old Theosophical hoodoo with the Space Age sheen of the Saucers.

King was much like Adamski in many ways (Leslie would later introduce the two men) but also prophesied a troubling scenario in which an unnamed figure, a "Globe Master, a ruler of the world, is to come - a stranger who will 
be 
more powerful than all the armies on earth." 

According to King, this "Globe Master" will remove all those 
from the earth who do not respect his word." Note the capitalized pronouns:

...He will openly approach the Earth leaders; He will make His 
origin known to them but they will not believe Him. However, He will
 have 
great powers which by Karmic Law, He will be allowed to use in order to 
demonstrate to all men beyond all doubt, the Authority empowering Him
 to 
carry out His great mission on Earth...the power of this Being will be 
greater than mankind has ever seen before in any single humanoid frame. 
So vast will it be as to be almost terrible...
How similar this sounds to Manly P. Hall's prophecy from decades earlier:
On that "Great Day" to come, humanity will become one and the 'Lord of the World' will openly reign. Until then, those who know "the purpose of the Universal Plan must dwell apart from the rest..." as keepers of the "Secret Doctrine." - Manly P. Hall, The Phoenix
Many occult and esoteric groups and figures have embraced Globalism, for centuries in fact, if not openly advocated for totalitarian systems like Fascism or Socialism. The alien groups only more so.

I don't need to remind you the effect this would have on the conspiracy-minded, particularly the religious variety thereof. But many more secular-minded observers have also looked upon all of this alien apocalypticism with a jaundiced eye. Many would make observations such as this: 

“A great many of the contactees purvey philosophies which are tinged, if not tainted, with totalitarian overtones.Paris Flammonde, The Age of Flying Saucers
UFO literature from the 50s to the 80s in particular is rife with this kind of Globalist propaganda, often accompanied by warnings of nuclear armageddon or environmental catastrophe if humans don't obey their Space Brothers' commands. The scare tactics grew particularly intense with the rise of the abductees in the 1960s:
"The Space Beings appear definitely concerned with seeing that all humankind is united as ‘one’ on this planet.  
“Contactees have been told that the Space Beings hope to guide Earth to a period of great unification, when all races will shun discriminatory separations and all of humankind will recognize its responsibility to every other life form existing on the planet. The Space Beings also seek to bring about a single, solidified government...”  Brad Steiger, The Fellowship
Jacques Vallee wrote about some of the troubling aspects of UFO cultism in Messengers of Deception (1979), including:
Fantastic economic theories, including the belief that a “world economy” can be created overnight, and that democracy should be abolished in favor of utopian systems, usually dictatorial in their outlook.
Of course, UFO cultists are not alone in this. Many more powerful and influential individuals and groups- some of the most powerful in the world, in fact- share these beliefs. The difference is that the latter have the power to turn their beliefs into reality. And are doing so. As we speak.

It's here I should remind everyone how strangely activist Hillary Clinton-- whose husband arguably did more to advance the cause of Globalism (and Silicon Valley) than any single person-- has been on the UFO issue during this electionseemingly oblivious to the almost universal scorn this position earned her from the pundits.


I should also remind everyone here that the world's wealthiest corporation is building their new headquarters in the shape of a flying saucer...


Why? What's the point?


We recently took another look at 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the uncanny parallels it has to the bullet points of postwar UFOlogy.  

........
Arthur C. Clarke was almost certainly the conduit for these tales being told out of school, given his extensive governmental, scientific, and military connections. That probably also explains the uncomfortably futuristic technology showcased in the film, gadgets that were being developed in secret labs and given a sneak preview for the tripping Aquarians who made 2001 a smash.




But what about Clarke's other tour de force? Was that too a work of prophecy, or a showcase for predictive programming? Was Clarke thinking of that quote by Manly Hall when he began writing of demonic aliens installing a totalitarian superstate in Childhood's End? Or was he tapped in another stream of information entirely?

What is the deeper link between these seemingly-disparate strands and why would all of this have such a hold on a man like Clarke?


It's interesting to see the just-completed UN Building on the back cover of Clarke's book, since the UN was the focus of anti-NWO theory for so long (much less so now). Its various affiliate programs allowed all manner of groups, no matter how obscure, to associate themselves with the increasingly-marginal body.


The Lucis Trust took advantage of the affiliate program, which along with former Assistant Secretary General Robert Muller's association with the Trust, provided a lot of grist for the mill for conspiracists. 


Another longtime hobby horse is an apparently spurious quote about Lucifer and the New World Order by New Age guru David Spangler, who was associated with a short-lived but influential (and alarmingly star-studded) Globalist thinktank, Planetary Citizen, that also took advantage of the affiliate program.

That quote is garbling of this actual quote, which for many is probably just as bad: 

“Lucifer comes to give to us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it then he is free and we are free. That is the Luciferic initiation. It is one that many people know, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” -- David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ 
What should not surprise anyone is that Spangler too claims to be a Contactee, though not quite of the Venusian variety:
"It is not unusual for me to have communication with non-physical, invisible beings; indeed, it happens almost every day and forms an important part of my work as I teach my online classes in collaboration with colleagues who dwell in spiritual worlds."
But perhaps he's just a more lucid type of the breed.

AT THE CROSSROADS

When talking about demons and science, it should be noted that Clarke began work on the novel that later became Childhood's End in July of 1946.


Yes, the same month that bombers from Roswell Army Air Field, led by General (Ram)ey, took part in Operation Crossroads, which many UFOlogists have cited, along with White Sands and Hiroshima, as the beacon that called our saucerian neighbors to our neck of the woods. 


This story is just chock-full of coincidences, isn't it?


But perhaps the Crossroads motif- as old as Hecate herself- tells us how those seeking to summon these beings truly understood their nature.

Indeed, we read quotes from very high-ranking military figures, who may in fact have been briefed on Crossroads at the time, giving us a very clear picture as to how they perceived this phenomenon.

........

We saw how Admiral Knowles eschewed the "nuts and bolts" of the phenomenon in favor of the far fringes. This was a man with serious combat experience, an instructor at Annapolis-- not the kind of dewey-eyed New Ager you'd normally associate with such beliefs.

But did he- like Sir Goddard and Sir Horsley- have a vantage point that allowed them to frame all of this in a very different manner than the board at NICAP?
 


More importantly, was Clarke doing the same in Childhood's End? Did he too realize the truth about this phenomenon, its nature, its actual origin, and did he in fact understand where it was all eventually leading? Note that the book was published just before the age of the Contactees, yet seemed to anticipate their utopian prophesying.

It should be noted that Clarke wandered far afield from scientific reductionism, dipping his toes into some pretty strange waters. What did he know that his peers did not?


What does the recent adaption of Childhood's End on Syfy presage for our own times? No one can deny that the agenda is quickening, that the brakes seem to have come off. Is there greater importance to the miniseries than we understand at the moment? 

DEMONOLOGY

Many UFOlogists would come to see those flying enigmas filled with beings not unlike Clarke's Overlords, who were simply a literalization of the demonic (or daimonic, if you prefer) archetype that would later come to dominate many corners of UFOlogy.

"There seems to be no evidence yet that any of these craft or beings 
originate from outer space." - Gordon Creighton, Official 1992 Flying 
Saucer Review Policy Statement 
"UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it... 
the modern UFOnauts and the demons of past days are probably
 identical." 
- Dr. Pierre Guerin, Flying Saucer Review
"Studies of flying saucer cults repeatedly show that they are part of a 
larger occult social world." - Stupple + McNeece, 1979 MUFON UFO 
Symposium Proceedings 
"The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of 
initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the traditions of every culture...the structure of abduction stories is 
identical to that of occult initiation rituals...the UFO beings of
today 
belong to the same class of manifestation as the entities that 
were described in centuries past." - Dr. Jacques Vallee, Confrontations 
Maybe Clarke was ahead of the curve.  Which leads one to question why and how. Maybe he was clued into information and intelligence that others were not and would never be. Perhaps he spoke to Air Marshall Goddard. He had the connections, certainly. Perhaps Sir Vic told him something like this:
"The astral world of illusion, which (on physical evidence) is greatly inhabited by illusion-prone spirits, is well known for its multifarious imaginative activities and exhortations. Seemingly some of its denizens are eager to exemplify principalities and powers. Others pronounce upon morality, spirituality, Deity, etc." 
"All of these astral exponents who invoke human consciousness may be sincere, but many of their theses may be framed to propagate some special phantasm, perhaps of an earlier incarnation, or to indulge an inveterate and continuing technological urge toward materialistic progress, or simply to astonish and disturb the gullible for the devil of it."


Or both.

Lucifer's Technologies: Hoyle's Hypothesis


Pazuzu installed at the ICA 
in 2008.
For real.

"Suppose we are actually living in a multi-dimensional time track with the same space, including a young primeval world, our own and a much older world with advanced technology, all ageing and developing side by side, conscious and sometimes stirred by the presence of the others - strange ships in the sky, images of ancient creatures, the imprudent antics of poltergeists and strange noises like the creaking of bedsprings from an empty room.  
"These time tracks spin around like separate grooves of a gramophone record, each playing a different score until given a sudden jolt when the needle jumps a track, imposing for a very short period an unintelligible tune upon its neighbour before being returned to its own groove again."
 Wing Commander Sir Peter Horsley, former Equerry to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

DAIMONES OF THE AIR

As we've established, the figure of Lucifer seems to be a demonization of several ancient gods and heroes, including the civilizing figures such as Oannes, Prometheus, Osiris-Dionysus and most important perhaps, Cadmus. 

But the term 'demonization' itself is revealing since the ancient Greek conception of daimones was identical in most ways to the Judeo-Christian conception of angels, particularly guardian angels.

In most ways, but not all. The term daimon originally referred to a spirit that was both protector and bringer of knowledge. The Romans called the daimones genii, the root of the term genius. You've probably heard that if someone was particularly gifted a Roman would say she had a genius, not that she was a genius.

Church fathers like Augustine dismissed the distinctions pagans made between good daemons (eudemons) and bad ones (kakodemons), though the idea of heavenly angels and fallen angels already existed as a corollary (particularly in the Book of Enoch).

But Augustine in particular was deeply influenced by the stark, simplistic dualism of Manichaeism, the Mesopotamian Gnostic faith he held before his conversion. Splitting hairs just wasn't his style.  

Another Apeulius quote by Augustine may just shed an important light on all the information we've just covered here:
The same Apuleius, when speaking concerning the manners of demons, said that they are agitated with the same perturbations of mind as men; that they are provoked by injuries, propitiated by services and by gifts, rejoice in honors, are delighted with a variety of sacred rites†, and are annoyed if any of them be neglected.  
Among other things, he also says that on them depend the divinations of augurs, soothsayers, and prophets, and the revelations of dreams, and that from them also are the miracles of the magicians. 


ON THE PLAINS OF SAN AGUSTIN

There are those who believe the Roswell event was real but don't believe it had anything to do with extraterrestrials from another star. 
The so-called Collins Elite, the alleged secret society within the Department of Defense, have an entirely novel take on the crash:

Beyond any shadow of doubt at all, the strangest belief of the Collins Elite was that relative to the Roswell affair of July 1947. In what is certainly a unique fashion, they came to believe that nothing - extraterrestrial or otherwise - crashed at Roswell. 
Rather, the group concluded that the event was "staged" - a "Trojan Horse"-type event provoked by demons trying to deceive us into accepting the idea that vulnerable ETs had crashed at Roswell, and were responsible for the wave of Flying Saucer encounters that gripped the nation in the summer of 1947. 
For the Collins Elite, the "alien debris" and "memory metal" said to have been recovered at the crash site on the Foster Ranch, New Mexico (which is shown above, in a photo I took in February 2011), were nothing less than the result of diabolical "demonic alchemy." 
In other words, the group formed an opinion that these strange entities "weaved" the materials, then had them manifest on the Foster Ranch, thus creating the image of a crash of something exotic from the skies. 
But, what of the bodies said to have been found at the site? Well, the Collins Elite had an answer to that issue too.  
Their members claimed to have read reports suggesting that no literal bodies were ever found at Roswell - at all. Rather, they maintained that certain "biological materials" were recovered.

Although comparisons have been to the Golems of Jewish folklore, what this all sounds like are variations on the homunculi, the artificial beings created in the Alchemical legends. See if a couple of names pop out at you here:
The guests thereupon ascended to the sixth floor, where stood a small altar resembling that in the King's throne room. The bird drank from the little fountain and was fed with the blood of the white serpent which crawled through the openings in the skull. The sphere by the altar revolved continuously. 
The watch struck one, two, and then three, at which time the bird, laying its neck upon the book, suffered itself to be decapitated. Its body was burned to ashes, which were placed in a box of cypress wood. 
Virgo Lucifera told C.R.C. and three of his comrades that they were lazy and sluggish "labourators" and would therefore be excluded from the seventh room.  
C.R.C. and his three friends were set to work moistening the bird's ashes with specially prepared water until the mixture became of doughlike consistency, after which it was heated and molded into two miniature forms. 
Later these were opened, disclosing two bright and almost transparent human images about four inches high (homunculi), one male and the other female. 
These tiny forms were laid upon satin cushions and fed drop by drop with the blood of the bird until they grew to normal size and of great beauty. Though the bodies had the consistency of flesh, they showed no signs of life, for the soul was not in them. 
The bodies were next surrounded with torches and their faces covered with silk. Virgo Lucifera then appeared, bearing two curious white garments. -- The Chemical Marriage of Christian Rosencreutz, as quoted in The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Palmer Hall
This of course was the foundational text for the Rosicrucians, who of course would later be identified with the rose and cross. Or should I say the Roswell-icrucians?



And wouldn't you just know it, another variation on the "Innovation Ring" popped up in another unlikely place*, in this case a collection of lectures on Rosicrucianism by Rudolf Steiner, published in 2000.


BIOBOTS GO!

UFO lore is filled with speculation that Greys are in fact biorobots of some kind, if not in fact actual homunculi. The reported robotic movements and tasking that is cited in abduction accounts is used as evidence for this theory. But for some, such as the Collins Elite, those explanations are far too conventional.

And for others, the cosmology leapfrogs over the relatively typical demonology of the UFO Demonologists and heads straight for Hypostasis of the Archons, the ancient Gnostic text that makes the Collins Elite look like starry-eyed optimists. 

Archon theory would come from the most unlikely of sources one fine spring day- in fact, it would be stated with great authority and confidence by one of England's most respected scientists.....


FULL CIRCLE

Sir Fred Hoyle was a British mathematician, astrophysicist and astronomer best known as the foremost proponent of the steady-state theory of the universe, that being that the universe is constantly creating matter to keep its density constant as it expands. Hoyle was no toiler- he was the cream of the crop (he's credited with coining the term "Big Bang"):
Hoyle was educated at Emmanuel College and St. John’s College, Cambridge, and spent six years during World War II with the British Admiralty, working on radar development. In 1945 he returned to Cambridge as a lecturer in mathematics. 
Hoyle was elected to the Royal Society in 1957, a year after joining the staff of the Hale Observatories (now the Mount Wilson and Palomar observatories). In collaboration with William Fowler and others in the United States, he formulated theories about the origins of stars as well as about the origins of elements within stars. Hoyle was director of the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy at Cambridge (1967–73), an institution he was instrumental in founding. 
He received a knighthood in 1972.
Hoyle received a knighthood after calling a press conference on May 10, 1971 and making the following claims to a startled press corps:
“Human beings are simply pawns in a great game, being played by alien minds, which control mankind’s every move. 
“These alien minds come from another universe, one with five dimensions. Their laws of chemistry and physics are completely different from ours. They have learned to shatter the TIME/SPACE barriers that restrict us."
These super-intelligent entities are so different from us that to apprehend them or to describe them in human terms, is impossible.
These entities seem to be totally free from any such physical restrictions as bodies, and they are more like pure intelligence. 
They seem to have the ability to be almost anywhere in the universe in a matter of seconds.
These aliens are everywhere—in the sky, on the sea, on earth. They have been here for countless eons and they have probably controlled the evolution of Homo sapiens. All of what man has built and become was accomplished because of the ‘tinkering’ of these intelligent forces.
Try to imagine a prominent scientist giving such a speech today- the firestorm would be unquenchable. Good luck getting tapped for a knighthood, he'd be drummed out of the business entirely. But as we saw with men like Horsley and Goddard, this was no obscure clockpuncher, crunching numbers in a back office somewhere. Hoyle was at the top of his game.

How similar this all sounds not only to the wildest speculations of left field UFOlogists but also to the Caxton Hall speech given by Goddard in 1969, which we encountered in our post on Rear Admiral Herbert Knowles.

What got into these men, by all measures at the summit of achievement in their respective fields, that they make such seemingly incredulous public statements? What exactly did they have to gain?

Although Hoyle gave no indication that he was sourcing from Hypostasis, this was a great refinement of Archon theory from the Gnostic days. Hoyle's ideas wouldn't make much of a mark on the world of science, unsurprisingly, but in the world of occult UFOlogy and UFO demonology Hoyle's pronouncements can't possibly be understated.

John Keel would be paying attention and Hoyle's words would have more of an impact on his 70s and 80s work than he would probably have wanted to admit. 


Friends of Keel would note that he became increasingly paranoid and pessimistic throughout that time and some have speculated that he may have had an upsetting encounter or event that deeply shaded his thinking.

Archon theory seems to have had an influence on Alchemical thinking as well, probably absorbed through anti-Gnostic tracts from early Church fathers. 
Hall would write this in 1928 in Secret Teachings of All Ages, telling much the same story of Yaldabaoth only with Lucifer in the villain's role:
In another part of his writings von Welling also says that there was no material universe until Lucifer, attempting to perform the cosmic alchemy, misused the Schamayim, or the Divine Fire. 
In order to reestablish the Schamayim which Lucifer had perverted, this universe was formed as a means of liberating it from the dark cloud within which it was locked by the failure of Lucifer's attempt to control it. These statements clearly emphasize the fact that the early philosophers recognized in the Bible a book of chemical and alchemical formulæ. 
Here is the Gnostic fall, from Divine immateria to the Hell of the material world. And although you might hear all kinds of nonsense to the contrary, the magic at work here seems to be distinctly anti-Gnostic, a rush to embrace the material, to embrace incarnation. Salvation through the material, literally so; running through materialism into a kind of immortal materialism, the promises of immortality of Transhumanism, of cryogenics, of gene editing.

All creating a new kind of pyramid cult, a doctrine of immortality dependent on a powerful priesthood. The new moguls of Silicon Valley seem particularly fixated on the idea, as if their wealth and power can defeat the Great Equalizer. 


What is far more likely to happen is that they will find out that their wealth and power will be as fleeting as human life itself and that they offer nothing that can't be copied by a new ascendancy, which is actually already beginning to take shape. Very little of what the new moguls proffer is truly essential and all of it is vulnerable to cultural backlash.  

The inarguably brilliant Ray Kurzweil clings tightly to the belief that bodily immortality- whether biological or via some kind of electronic intermediary- is inevitable and indeed, imminent. But there's still not a glimmer of evidence that this immortality will be made manifest any time soon. If at all.

Now we hear the increasing drumbeat of artificial intelligence and robotics, but is this simply a repeat of the revolutions that neuroscience and nanotechnology were supposed to bring about 25 years ago? Or is this in fact the ultimate endgame of the postwar technological revolution? 

Is replacement by intelligent machines the endgame of Humanism, after all? Or is there another game at work, one running in a parallel track to the brave new world of Darwin, Dennett and Dawkins?



Hoyle didn't stop at extradimensional aliens when it came to blaspheming against the totalitarian dictates of the Scientistic elite. Along with Chandra Wickramasinghe, Hoyle went straight to the heart of the Holiest of Holies, the untouchable dogma, the new Divine Right of Kings.

Yes, Hoyle rejected Darwinian evolution in favor of a radical kind of  panspermia, most notably spelled out in the book Evolution from Space. Hoyle would state that the idea of life arising ex nihilo was nonsense, claiming "there is not a shred of objective evidence to support the hypothesis that life began in an organic soup here on Earth." His co-author would write:
The facts as we have them show clearly that life on Earth is derived from what appears to be an all pervasive galaxy-wide living system. Terrestrial life had its origins in the gas and dust clouds of space, which later became incorporated in and amplified within comets. 
Life was derived from and continues to be driven by sources outside the Earth, in direct contradiction to the Darwinian theory that everybody is supposed to believe. 
It is believed by neo-Darwinists that the full spectrum of life as we see it today as well as in the past is accounted for by the steady accumulation of copying errors and the consequent development of variety as a primitive living system is copied billions upon billions of times. 
It is stated according to the theory that the accumulation of copying errors, sorted out by the process of natural selection, the survival of the fittest, could account both for the rich diversity of life and for the steady upward progression from bacterium to Man. 
In our recent book Sir Fred Hoyle and I have argued strongly against this proposition. We agree that successive copying would accumulate errors, but such errors on the average would lead to a steady degradation of information.  
What the fossil record does show beyond doubt is that new properties of life at the level of expressed genes have been introduced by successive experiments. Only when these experiments were successful did the changes endure. Lines with unsuccessful or inoperable gene additions simply died away.
With this Hoyle and Wickramasinghe placed themselves in a small but potent camp of secular dissenters against Darwinist, and as such naturalist and mechanistic, determinism.

It should be noted that another scientific luminary went even farther in his theories of the extraterrestrial origins of life. One with a rather unique qualification to speak of such things.

Author Michael Drosnin, who pioneered a postmodern kind of Kabbalah with his bestseller The Bible Code, made a remarkable discovery while applying his software to a passage in Genesis:
Francis Crick’s directed panspermia was used by Michael Drosnin as scientific support for what he read out of the “Bible Code” in the following encrypted message from a block of type 32 characters wide by 12 high from Genesis: “DNA was brought in a vehicle.” This message is crossed by another: “your seed.” Nearby is the message: “In a vehicle your seed.” From this Drosnin concludes: 
When I found that encoded in the Bible, I couldn’t believe it. It seemed like science fiction. DNA, the molecule of life, sent to Earth in a spaceship.
I wondered if any reputable scientist would even consider such a fantastic idea.
Drosnin went straight to the source for corroboration, Francis Crick. A Nobel laureate and the co-discoverer of DNA, one of the great breakthroughs of the post-Roswell era, Crick also drifted away from Darwinist dogma later in his career.
“Is it possible,” I asked Crick, when I reached him at the Salk Institute in San Diego, California, “that our DNA came from another planet?”
“I published that theory twenty-five years ago,” said Crick. “I called it Directed Panspermia.”
“Do you think it arrived in a meteor or comet?” I asked.
“No,” said Crick. “Anything living would have died in such an accidental journey through space.
“Are you saying that DNA was sent here in a vehicle?” I asked.
“It’s the only possibility,” said Crick.

The "only possibility." Rather definitive, don't you think?

Lucifer's Technologies: Meetings with Remarkable Beings

"Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. "

We live in a strange time. Science has achieved great things, yet makes all kinds of promises it never keeps, a problem that only seems to be getting worse. And now many scientists insist on the privilege of ordaining what is or isn't truth over all other fields of inquiry.

But increasingly we are finding out that mainstream science is riddled with corruption, error and outright fraud. 

The mechanisms of peer review and reproducibility are failing on an industrial scale, as most studies go unread, never mind reviewed or reproduced.

The problems have gotten so bad that the media has been forced to address the issues, even if they do so with bias, spin and distortion (the fact that they are addressing it at all proves that it's much worse than they are willing to admit and much worse than we are being told).   ...............
But the problems run deep and stem from what increasingly looks like an accident of history. Science and technology sustained the illusion of being able to create perpetual miracles, largely based on the explosion of electronics after the Second World War, which also allowed for great strides in other fields of science.

In fact, many had felt that science had reached its limits at the end of the 19th Century, until powerful technologies had given many fields a jolt after the war. 


But was this in fact a false dawn? As we've seen it's been a long time now without any truly major breakthroughs in many of the major sciences, and one can argue that that postwar boom gave science an inflated hope that the breakthroughs would never end.

There's still no moon base, or undersea shopping mall and hovercraft and jet packs are thin on the ground. Everything is forever just around the corner, or "20 years away," as the news stories always seem to say.

No one stops to look at how utterly anomalous the postwar boom was, how unprecedented it was in the development of human knowledge, and how mysterious the origins are of many of the technologies many younger people take for granted.

No one stops to notice all of the extraordinary phenomena that accompanied this explosion of science and technology or looks at the curious biographies of many of the people involved. Tired hacks are wheeled from ivory towers to smear it all with all with a smirk-- a strategy explicitly laid out by a CIA panel in the early 50s-- but the fact is that it was no laughing matter at the time. 

And too few people stop to ask what kind of effect all of this has had on our cultures, our societies, our economies and the future of civilization itself. Has intelligence increased because of our technology? Again, go to an antiquarian book store and judge for yourself. Hell, look at popular magazines from 45 years ago compared to today. 

And technology has also given sociopaths power to re-engineer the world at an ever-faster rate, a world that the rest of us seem to grow increasingly alienated from.

Of course, there are those who would argue there are very good reasons for this alienation.



One of the popular science magazines recently had a cover story that listed 10 (or so) things that scientists believe exist but haven't found or proven yet. Most laypeople might not realize it but scientists believe in all kinds of things they have not or cannot observe.* 

Yet those same Scientists will explode into fits of outrage and ridicule over the topic of UFOs, even though it's a phenomenon that boasts an avalanche of data, even when you strip away the hoaxes, misidentifications and delusions. 


We looked at Admiral Herbert Knowles and Air Marshall Victor Goddard, two extremely accomplished military men- and men of science, as well- who came to hold rather extreme beliefs about UFOs and aliens.
........
They weren't exactly outliers, there were a number of notable military officers who did so as well (just pick up any Timothy Good book and you'll find all you need).

You could count Douglas MacArthur among the believers, and if the stories are to be believed, count Dwight Eisenhower among the contactees. 

There's also Desmond Leslie, the polymath RAF fighter pilot, screenwriter and electronic music pioneer, who authored the groundbreaking (and ruthlessly meticulous) Flying Saucers Have Landed in 1953, which not only introduced George Adamski to the world but also quotes Alice Bailey in its introduction.



Then there is the example of Sir Peter Horsley, not only one of these astonishingly accomplished military officers but also a self-confessed contactee. 

Horsley's credentials almost seem like overkill- this was an officer of the very highest caliber, a man entrusted with the keys to Britain's nuclear arsenal:
Horsley was later attached to the Communications-Squadron of the 2nd Tactical Air Force in France, and, during the D-Day invasion of Normandy (as) personal pilot to Major-General Sir Miles Graham. In July 1949, Horsley entered the Royal Household as a Squadron Leader...In 1952, Horsley became a Wing-Commander and in 1953 became a full-time Equerry to the Duke of Edinburgh; a role he held until 1956. 

Horsley was employed as Senior-Instructor at the RAF Flying College...as Commanding-Officer at RAF Wattisham, and as Group-Captain, Near-East Air Force Operations... Horsley made the rank of Air Vice-Marshal; later attaining the position of Assistant-Chief of Air-Staff (Operations), and then that of Commanding-Officer, 1-Group from 1971 to 1973. (His final post) was as the Deputy-Commander-in-Chief of Strike Command, which he held from 1973 to 1975. 
His credentials are important. This wasn't some low-ranking enlisted man wowing the UFO circuit with stories of unseen documents or alien wrecks. This was a member of the highest echelon. That matters when we get to his story.

According to Horsley, he found himself living a real-life Doctor Who episode when he was summoned to a flat in Chelsea for a meeting with an enigmatic stranger:
Sir Arthur Barratt, who worked at Buckingham Palace as Gentleman Usher to the Sword of State, introduced Horsley to a mysterious “General Martin,” who, in turn put him in touch with an “enigmatic” Mrs. Markham... who told him to turn up at a particular apartment in London’s Chelsea district on a specific evening, where he met a stranger who introduced himself only as Mr. Janus. 

Horsley said of his chat with the man that: “Janus was there, sitting by the fire in a deep chair. He asked: ‘What is your interest in flying saucers?’ We talked for hours about traveling in space and time... I believe he was here to observe us. I never saw him again.” 
Timothy Good later revealed that Horsley had confided in him an astonishing detail about the meeting:
“In my second and last meeting with Sir Peter Horsley at his home in 2000, he revealed that, in addition to being disturbed by the realization that Janus was reading his mind, he was even more disturbed by the fact that this extraordinary man ‘knew all Britain’s top-secret nuclear secrets.’”
David Clarke, a man unfit to mow Peter Horsley's lawn, would later smirkingly suggest that Horsley was somehow being set up by Mi5, a baseless and unsupported claim the Equerry vigorously denied. It also makes little logical sense- the people who knew Britain's nuclear secrets would be a very small club and a player like Horsley would know them all.

If Horsley didn't know the man already, he would have run into him later surely. As superspook John Poindexter once said of the spy business, "there really aren't that many players."


Indeed, Horsley made a detailed record of his meeting with this stranger for the Prince:
“What is strange is that I have no lasting impression of him. He seemed to fit perfectly in his surroundings. If I have any impression it was his quiet voice which had a rich quality to it. He looked about 45 to 50 years old and was wearing a suit and a tie. 
He was quite normal in every way except that he seemed to be tuning into my mind and gradually took over the conversation…by the end of the meeting I was quite disturbed really.” 
Janus would speak rather prophetically to Horsley about the near future and the advent of high technology. It leads one to wonder if he had some kind of inside track, particularly in regards to the issue of miniaturization, not exactly a hot topic yet in the early 50s, with transistors and the like still struggling to establish themselves as viable technologies (vacuum tubes were certainly still the gold standard in England).
Humanity was using technology like a child with new toys giving scant regard to his surroundings, nature and his fellow humans. He explained that in 20 or 30 years (remember this was 1954) that rockets and satellites would become commonplace and miniaturization of our technology and advances in communication would grow rapidly. 
As regards Roswell, Aztec and the rest of the alleged UFO crashes, this mysterious stranger claimed most of the craft visiting Earth were unmanned probes, but there were occupied vehicles monitoring the situation:
Some are manned in order to oversee the whole program and to ensure their probes do not land or crash by accident. They must also ensure that evidence of their existence is kept away from the vast majority of Earth’s population.
Horsley referred to the aliens visiting this planet as "Observers", which is essentially another way of saying "Watcher." Think about that for a moment. These Observers also had a particular set of skills:
The observers have very highly developed mental powers, including extra- sensory, thought reading, hypnosis and the ability to use different dimensions... 
Horsley claimed the aliens themselves were behind the cover-up UFOlogists love to rail against, as a means of protecting human society from the dangers exposure to a superior civilization could cause:
You must be well aware of the damage which your own explorers have done by appearing and living among simple tribes, often leading to a complete disintegration of their society and culture. Such impact is far too indigestible and only the most developed societies can cope with such contact.
Now, Horsley's meeting might seem novel in the world of UFOlogy but in the context of the occult and paranormal-- in the history of encounters with angels and demons-- it's almost an inevitability. A highly accomplished and motivated individual begins knocking on strange doors, it's only natural that one will open and invite the seeker in. Or vice versa.

But men like Horsley may not have realized that behind those doors is a hall of mirrors, where nothing is ever what it seems. Janus was not only the god of doors and gates, he was also a "two-faced" god, which should have been Horsley's first clue that he was not quite what he would have one believe. 

Jacques Vallee writes in Dimensions:
Jerome Cardan lived in Milan and was not only a methematician but also an occultist and a physician. In his book De Subtilitate, Cardan explains that he had often heard his father tell the particular story and finally searched for his record of the event, which read as follows: August 13, 1491. When I had completed the customary rites, at about the twentieth hour of the day, seven men duly appeared to me clothed in silken garments, resembling Greek togas, and wearing, as it were, shining shoes. 
The men wore shining armor and appeared to be, like Janus, ordinary middle-aged men. But appearances can be deceiving, can't they?
When asked who they were, they said that they were men composed, as it were, of air, and subject to birth and death. It was true that their lives were much longer than ours, and might even reach to three hundred years' duration.
Cardan asked the same question that Horsley would centuries later; why don't these beings reveal themselves and their arcane knowledge to the world?
When my father asked them why they did not reveal treasures to men if they knew where they were, they answered that it was forbidden by a peculiar law under the heaviest penalties for anyone to communicate this knowledge tomen. They remained with my father for over three hours.
So if the apparent good guys- this Janus fellow and the beings Cardan met are forbidden from sharing secret knowledge- or technology, if you prefer- with human beings because of the danger it poses to social cohesion, what does that tell us about those who do?

Before you answer that question I will note that  Vallee writes of another historical encounter in Dimensions, this one a less personal and more of a close encounter, in the Hynekian sense.
All at once, in a ravine on the right-hand side of the way, I saw a sort of amphitheatre, wonderfully illuminated. In a funnel-shaped space there were innumerable little lights gleaming, ranged step-fashion over one another; and they shone so brilliantly that the eye was dazzled. But what still more confused the sight was that they did not keep still, but jumped about here and there, as well downwards from above as vice versa, and in every direction. The greater of them, however, remained stationary, and beamed on.
The witness was a young Johann Goethe, author of the most popular and enduring version of the Faust myth. In the context of our narrative it seems inevitable. Goethe was unsure what it was he was witnessing, perhaps it was a "pandemonium," or a convocation of fallen angels. It seems episodes like this are de rigeur for players like Goethe, messages of some kind from the other side.

There's another player who we should revisit in this story, whose contact with the other side was perhaps less direct than Peter Horsley's or even Goethe's, but certainly more revolutionary. 


It may in fact provide us with the model for the mystery we are trying to unravel over Lucifer's technologies, an earlier kind of prototype that we can hold at arm's length and see if a great pattern emerges.

Of course, I am referring to John Dee, who served under the previous Queen Elizabeth. And speaking of the Observers, Dee would introduce the concept of Enochian magic into the world's lexicon, bringing us right back to Mount Hermon and the time of the original Observers, the Watchers.

Dee and his scryer Edward Kelley spent years seeking the counsel of angels through various techniques, crystal balls and the like. And the angels were keen to give it.
Over years of Actions, the angels described the ordering of the cosmos; a series of instructions for ritual invocations; predictions of apocalypse and events to come in European politics; and, finally, the Angelic or “Enochian” language, which they explained was the ur-language of humanity, spoken before the Fall of Adam. For Dee, this was not magic, but religion—he supplicated himself to the angels totally.
 Kelley, though, was terrified of the spirits, considering them demons and constantly begging Dee to cease the sessions. 
While Dee is known to many as a magus, he was also a man of science, practical science. This was no contradiction in those times, even Isaac Newton was devoted to the study of Alchemy. However, Dee's contributions would be, significantly, weaponized.

What input the angels had in all of this is a fascinating question:

For the next twenty-five years, he would work as England’s foremost practical and theoretical scientist, advocating heliocentrism, lifting astronomy from obscurity, teaching mathematics and, crucially, developing systems of navigation and optics that would help establish England’s naval superiority. He also made startling scientific predictions—of the telescope, of the speed of light and fourth dimension, and of uses of optics for weapons and solar power that would not be tried until the 1960s.
Dee was not only a magus and a scientist, he was also a political theorist. His work for Elizabeth would have profound consequences for the world in the years to come. And his theory was informed by the power of myth, like all these things seem to be. 
Dee proposed a “British Empire,” a phrase he coined—for Dee, this would be nothing less than a restoration of the reign of Arthur, as he believed that Arthur’s original colonies were, in fact, in the New World—even that America was Atlantis itself. 
Dee saw Elizabeth as the living Arthur; himself, Merlin. He formed a company to colonize, convert and exploit the Americas, even to open a northeast passage to Asia, with a mind to seeking the perceived source of all occult wisdom. There is strong evidence that Dee was the intellectual force behind Francis Drake’s 1577-1580 circumnavigation of the globe.  
Given Dee's abilities and accomplishments can we actually doubt that this was a man in contact with greater powers? That this was a man tapped into a source greater than that of even the most accomplished individuals of our time?

Do you actually believe that there are those who would not see Dee as a model and try to retrace his steps, try to tap into the powers that Dee claimed to be in communication with? Particularly those who lust after power, power of the kind that Alexander once wielded?


If you doubt it, read the news or simply look at the world outside your window. Then read this, about those "angels" with whom Dee was communicating with:
Put simply, the angels wanted nothing less than a New World Order, run by divine principles, and proposed what must be one of the most dangerous ideas in Western history: A world religion...which would not only reunite Catholicism and Protestantism but even Judaism and Islam into a fused whole... 
(All) made possible, of course, by the technology the angels had provided for direct individual contact with the spiritual agents of God instead of relying on terrestrial authority or scripture.
This begs the question; was the postwar boom in fact authored four centuries before, by the work done by Dee and Kelley and the enigmatic forces they were in contact with? Has the script already been written and all the enigmas and puzzles that baffle us today all part of a plan we can scarcely guess at the contours of? 

And who in fact were these angels? Were they the Watchers made famous from the Book of Enoch, who themselves bestowed technology upon those who obeyed them? Need I remind you that Roswell itself is on the same exact latitude as Mount Hermon, where the Watchers first descended from Heaven?

I'll leave you with these words again from Sir Victor Goddard:
"All of these astral exponents who invoke human consciousness may be sincere, but many of their theses may be framed to propagate some special phantasm, perhaps of an earlier incarnation, or to indulge an inveterate and continuing technological urge toward materialistic progress..."
UPDATE: Tristan Eldritch supplies us with this CRUCIAL quote from Sir Peter Horsley: 
 "Suppose we are actually living in a multi-dimensional time track with the same space, including a young primeval world, our own and a much older world with advanced technology, all ageing and developing side by side, conscious and sometimes stirred by the presence of the others - strange ships in the sky, images of ancient creatures, the imprudent antics of poltergeists and strange noises like the creaking of bedsprings from an empty room. 
"These time tracks spin around like separate grooves of a gramophone record, each playing a different score until given a sudden jolt when the needle jumps a track, imposing for a very short period an unintelligible tune upon its neighbour before being returned to its own groove again."
