Fragment 5.

5. The Emerald Tablet of Hermes says that which is above is that which is below. In Freemasonic Tradition, this saying is symbolised by two inverted triangles; the Star of David, or the Seal of Silence. These two triangles represent the nature of mind contemplating itself in utter silence. Therefore, As above, so below, is another way of saying that which is within is that which is without, or man is the microcosm of the Universe.
Fix yourself, it seems to say; heal yourself, and you will heal the Universe. Heal the Universe, the others around you, and you will heal yourself. Then come what may; you are healed, and the healthy shall not be so easily overcome by sickness again in future.

Fragment 4.


Notes on meditations; when we mediate we are taught to clear our mind of all thoughts. When the mind is free of all thought, we say that it is resting in the nature of mind. In this state, we must remain watchful so that we do not succumb to our thoughts. So we watch our mind as it rests in the nature of mind. We are the mind concentrating upon the mind concentrating upon itself. This automatic feedback loop creates an small space within the mind; about the size and shape of an egg. This egg is filled with the first material or prime matter of the Universe. It only exists for as long as you concentrate and, as long as you concentrate it doesn’t exist. It is the Ain Soph; the Nothing that existed before everything, and the Nothing in which everything will exist in forever.

Fragment 3.

The Bjork Homoplasmate sings these lines in Play Dead, a song from her album post ;

I have to go through this.
I belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear.

It could just as easily be called the City of Death. That is this world. The world of the dead. No-one here gets out alive; as Jim Morrison used to say. We must go through this part of the Universe, this place of fear, hate and death, so that we can be shown and understand that which is really important. If we fail to, or miss the point, then we will repeat the suffering of another life in the Kingdom of Death. I reached this understanding in the Valley of Life; a white monolithic city that lies directly under the light of the full moon.

Fragment 2.

If you have looked into the back of the mirror and gone blind, if you have launched yourself off the precipise of your mind; do not worry. Take your Thrice Blessed and broken mind in your arms and comfort it. It is your child, guide it, nurture it, teach it to see again and love. You are your own son, and daughter, your own wife and husband. The child sits on top, in the nest of your making, furiously contemplating the world; let it. Beneath the child should be the mother or father, there to comfort the child whenever it is lost or afraid. When all is well mother and father can relax, but every now and then, one or other may need encouragement; to play the games that people play.

Fragment 1.


The plasmate is depicted as a white dove or bird in Christian iconography. It is, what Phillip K. Dick says, the Holy Spirit that came unto Christ and Elijah. It can take many forms, but its true form is similar to that of a white winged bird or frog. The rudimentary designs, as seen in churches across the world, depicting the Holy Spirit are in fact depicting the plasmate in its unaltered form. The cover of Richard Bach’s novel Johnathan Livingstone Seagull depicts the same creature. This book is about the search for spiritual perfection in life, away from the materialist squabbling hoards. In the story, the eponymous Johnathan Livingston Seagull – who is, in fact, a seagull – practices the art of perfect flying, whilst shunning the rest of the flock. In the same way, a man need not confine his mind to the incessant chatter of society, but can emulate Seagul’s aerial acrobatics in the limitless expanses of the imagination. Let your soul and spirit rise up into the Spiritual sky and there you can practice the acrobatic dives and tumbles that ordinary minds won’t do; and this will set you free.

The Masonic Guide to Monster Movies
Q; The Winged Serpent is a 1982 movie by Larry Cohen; starring David Carradine, as Shepard, a New York City detective investigating reports of a giant flying lizard devouring the people of the city. Shepard is also investigating a series of bizarre murders, which he believes are connected in some way to the lizard case. His hunch proves correct, as it is discovered that a group of crazed religious zealots are offering themselves as willing sacrifices to the flying serpent Quetzicoatl [Q]; an Ancient Mayan deity.

The movie is interesting because it loosely combines Ancient Mayan legend and Masonic symbolism, against the backdrop of New York City. The city has been a major Masonic enclave, since its foundation, and was also the scene of the most vicious attacks ever perpetrated against the American people, on American soil. The occult undertones of the 9/11 attacks have lead some people to speculate that an initiatory secret society (such as; the Freemasons or Skull and Bones) were behind them. I believe that information contained in Larry Cohen's Q; The Winged Serpent corroborates these claims, but before I go into that I will establish Cohen's use of symbolic metaphor for the sake of argument.

Shepard, which is a reference to the biblical shepherding of "the weak through the valley of darkness" (Ezekiel 25:17). In this case, "the weak" are the city's population and "the valley of darkness" are the great canyoned streets of Manhattan. In light of the biblical message, we could suppose that the entire film is in reference to the serpent in the Garden of Eden, in which Quetzicoatl is the serpent and New York City is the Tree or the Apple of Knowledge; owing to New York's pet name 'the Big Apple'.

Director Larry Cohen had his monster build its nest in the Chrysler Building, which was constructed by  Freemasons in the early 20th Century. Cohen's decision to use the Chrysler Building as the location for the creature's nest was undoubtedly informed by the avian symbolism associated with this landmark building. Now that we have established Cohen's penchant for symbolism, we may proceed with interpreting the film as a coded message regarding a certain Masonic affiliated organisation, that has had a number of US Presidents on its members list; including, we might add, Pr. George W. Bush - who was incumbent at the time of 9/11 itself.

Following in the wake of a high-rise battle between the flying monster and the New York State Department, 'Q' collapses onto the pinnacle of one of New York's skyscrapers. The building is adorned with a step-pyramid, and the creature, in its death-throws, manages to dislodge its capstone. This is apparently in reference to the missing capstone of Masonic lore.

Shepard also manages to track down the Mayan high-priest in room number 322 of a New York hotel. As it happens, this is also the chapter number of the Yale Fraternity Skull and Bones. Now, I am not suggesting that Larry Cohen, or anyone else on the film set, had prior knowledge of an attack against America, nor that he is consciously linking Skull & Bones to those attacks. Rather I think that Larry's spontaneous style of film-making may have allowed him to produce a work of art, which foretold such a connection, and possibly without him even being aware of it. If we accept these conclusions (or even if we don't) we might ask ourselves; just what does the Mayan belief system have to do with the events of 9/11, anyway?

The first public announcement ever made with regard to the much maligned 'New World Order' was made by George Bush Snr. on September 11th 1990; exactly 11 years before 9/11 occurred. This is an important figure in relation to our Sun, which has two differing states of activity separated by an 11 year Sun Spot Cycle. Each one of these cycles represents either Solar Maximum or Minimum condition. The below chart attempts to show the relationship between the Bush press release, the 9/11 attacks and 2012, in terms Solar output variance.

The significance of 2012 has long been known to the United States establishment, and was mentioned in governmental report way back in 1957. Both George W. Bush and his father were members of Skull and Bones. While the skull and crossbones motif features as a recognisable part of Masonic lore, it prevalence as a part of Mayan Culture cannot be understated. It is, therefore, not unreasonable to assume that the Mayan culture, and its prolific use of skulls, would have been of no small consequence to the death-obsessed cult of the Skull and Bones.

The 9/11 Flying Serpent

The concept of a giant serpent terrorizing New York City is made all the more interesting when we recall that a photograph of just such a creature was taken here on the morning of September 11th 2001. It was reportedly captured by a police officer, who claimed not to have noticed the strange creature until he returned home and reviewed the images on his digital camera later that evening. Unfortunately, I cannot post the image, as it is no longer available on the internet. However, here is a link to a discussion on the subject on the ATS forum.
The photograph, which is more than likely a hoax, has its implications, however. Someone is undoubtedly trying to express the notion that the events of 9/11 opened up some kind of gateway or portal, which allowed this creature from another dimension to slip through. This same idea is suggested in Q; The Winged Serpent, with an aerial sequence, which attempts to convey the creature's flight between the two towers.

An experience of the Salvia Bardo is one of being ripped apart. This process begins at the arm, in which the appendage is sliced into an infinite number of manifolds which is then seemingly expanded around the leading edge of a Poincare sphere. To understand what this process feels like, you need only imagine how Tetsuo must feel when his arm is entering into full-spasmodic transformation, in the anime movie Akira.

The loss of one’s arm is symbolic of Karmic Law. In the 2007 film Beowulf (Warning; spoilers ahead) the eponymous hero journeys to Denmark at the behest of King Hrothgar, whose kingdom is nightly assailed by a monster, called Grendel. Beowulf’s attack on the monster is characterised by its ferocity, which appears to be informed by his distain for all things misshapen and loathsome. By making swift use of a winch and a chain, he wrenches off the creature’s arm. He then punches it repeatedly in a large cist located behind the ear. This is an area of the body which runs along the parallel meridians and, as such is associated with the storage and removal of various toxins from the body. By punching him in this manner, Beowulf succeeds in reducing Grendels size (stature) significantly.
Beowulf chastises Grendel and calls him a “demon”. To which Grendel rightly responds; I am no demon. He is, in fact, the hybrid child of King Hrothgar and a nameless water demon.

 In the wake of Beowulf’s triumphant battle, Grendel lurches back to cave, and mother, to die. Upon seeing what has befallen her only child, she vows revenge. She does not have long to wait, as Beowulf goes in search of Grendel’s head as a trophy. Through her feminine charms, she manages to persuade Beowulf to abandon his quest for Grendel’s head – in return for kingship and immunity from death by mortal hand. Upon returning to the kingdom empty handed, our hero concocts a story to satisfy all inquery. Hrothgar, however, sees through his lies to the actual events which unfolded, and realising that he is now free of the water demon’s curse, he promptly commits suicide.

Years later, Beowulf is seen watching over the battlefield, wondering if man’s hostility towards man does not make him every bit the monster Grendel had been. Although he has inherited Hrothgar’s kingdom, surely he must wonder if he has not inherited his evil curse, as well? Not long afterwards, on the outskirts of the village, the priest’s family is incinerated by an enormous dragon. The dragon is the half-man, half-demon progeny of Beowulf’s unholy union with Grendel’s mother. By virtue of having Beowulf as father, this monster is far more powerful than had Grendel ever been.

In the ensuing battle, Beowulf's arm is severed, but it remains attached to his person by means of a long chain. As he dangles limply from the dragon’s chest, it is evident by his demeanor that the karmic irony of the events are not altogether lost on him. Gathering up every last ounce of strength, Beowulf manages to defeat his son and, in the process, dies alongside him.

Life, as shown in this age-old legend, is but a series of Karmic causes and conditions, each one like the link of a chain. Hence, the repeated juxtaposition of the loss of one’s arm and the chain/chainmail, signifies this Karmic value.

Another film which has a father and son theme, in which both father and son lose their arms, is of course Star Wars. Perhaps a more recent example, would be Danny Boyles’s 127 hours, based upon the true story of a lone hiker Aron Ralston (James Franco) who got his arm caught underneath a boulder. Throughout his experience he suffers many hallucinations, including one in which he claims to have seen his, as then, unborn son offering him much needed encouragement. Faced with the very real possiblity of starvation, he eventual succeeds in severing his own arm, using nothing more than a blunt knife and the weight of the rock itself.

A synchronistic account of 127 Hours can be found on these websites; An experience of being alive and The Synch Hole. Here is a list of thoughts drawing partly on their findings.

Nova-november, the brightening of the sun.
The Chilean miners coming out of the Earth;
this is contact with the heavens, the infinite.
The longest town name;
The infinite, the ridiculous, and the end of.
Pheonix rising.

127 hours; do not do this.
Forbidden because it leads to the irrational,
the insane,
                 the creative,
                                     the sacred,
                                                      the infinite.
The finite is fraught with dangers.
The infinite is insane.
Where should we be, then, but in the middle?
We are infinite, but we die. We are finite, but we are alive.
