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 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..."
