The Mystery of the Nine Unknown Men


Over at Mysterious Universe, Brent Swancer explores the mystery of the Nine Unknown Men who came from India.

via Mysterious Universe:

Humankind has always had a sort of fascination with the idea of secret societies. From the Freemasons to the Illuminati, there is a certain allure to the idea that behind the scenes of our everyday life there are powerful forces at work pulling the strings, privy to knowledge beyond our mainstream understanding, and with access to ancient secrets beyond our wildest dreams. They operate just under the surface of our civilization, their motives and aims enigmatic and inscrutable, working towards ends that we may never fully understand. One such alleged secret society concerns a shadowy group of nine mysterious men, formed in ancient India and charged with guarding ancient secrets and protecting us from the potentially destructive knowledge which we manage to glean from the mysteries of the universe.

What I’ve learned as a Freemason and why I left the order

Freemasons' Hall 1927: London art deco
I joined Freemasonry out of a deep-seated yearning for truth and mystery. That yearning is something some people are just born with and others aren’t. Personally, I had a hunch that the allegories of Freemasonry were based on ancient astrolatry, not to be confused with astrology[1]. In other words, the allegories of Freemasonry are a play on the ancient mysteries about light (the sun) overcoming darkness.[2] I couldn’t just read and wonder about it, though. I wanted to confirm it for myself by becoming a Freemason. After years of studying it and becoming a 32° Mason, I’m comfortable asserting that to be true and feel that I’ve confirmed my hunch.

What I’ve learned.

There are allegories embedded within the religions of the world and Freemasonry describes them. [3] These allegories describe scientific truths and philosophic concepts and don’t fall within the realm of occult pseudoscience or superstition. The craft of Freemasonry is, therefore, a historical and scientific inference rather than a cult or religion.… Read the rest

Strange find in tunnels under Paris

Catacombs Paris 1

The Paris Police Force is tasked with policing the 170 miles of tunnels and catacombs running beneath the city of Paris. In 2004 they made an intriguing discovery.

Behind that, a tunnel held a desk and a closed-circuit TV camera set to automatically record images of anyone passing. The mechanism also triggered a tape of dogs barking, “clearly designed to frighten people off,” the spokesman said.

Further along, the tunnel opened into a vast 400 sq metre cave some 18m underground, “like an underground amphitheatre, with terraces cut into the rock and chairs”.

There the police found a full-sized cinema screen, projection equipment, and tapes of a wide variety of films, including 1950s film noir classics and more recent thrillers. None of the films were banned or even offensive, the spokesman said.

A smaller cave next door had been turned into an informal restaurant and bar. “There were bottles of whisky and other spirits behind a bar, tables and chairs, a pressure-cooker for making couscous,” the spokesman said.

See William Butler Yeats’ Magical Golden Dawn Tools and Private Journals

via The Daily Grail:

Irish poet William Butler Yeats is perhaps the most well-known member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the influential secret magical society which originated in the late 19th century (and still exists in a number of forms today). Yeats was initiated into the order in 1890, taking on the magical name Demon est Deus Inversus—”the Devil is God Inverted.” As the order fell into chaos in the early 20th century, Yeats struggled to keep it intact, but he eventually left the offshoot Stella Matutina temple in 1921.

In 2009, noted Tarot author and scholar Mary K. Greer blogged about an exhibit at the National Library of Ireland showcasing a number of Yeats’s Golden Dawn tools and writings, including pages from his private magical journal. The exhibition is still online and I encourage you to view it here (although it is build in Flash and employs a clunky navigation system).

Former World Bank Senior Counsel Karen Hudes Says “Second Species” Controls Human Civilization

Are elongated-skull non-human creatures hiding amongst us? Via Collective-Evolution, about 21 minutes into an eyebrow-raising interview with Red Ice Radio, former senior World Bank lawyer Karen Hudes claims so:
“These countries are not monolithic, there are forces fighting the corruption and there are forces that have totally been co-opted…The group that’s behind the network of control are the Jesuits, and there are also some groups behind them. One of these groups are hominids, they’re not human beings. They are very smart, they are not creative, they are mathematical. They have elongated skulls, they may produce offspring in mating with female humans, but that offspring is not fertile. We live in a world of secret societies, and secrets, and the information that ought to be public is not public.”

Secrets In Plain Sight: An Interview with Scott Onstott

Via SacredGeometryInternational.com

Scott Onstott is an unexpected alchemist.  A soft spoken architect and autocad teacher by trade, Onstott has found himself called to continue in the footsteps of modern alternative historians such as Graham Hancock & Robert Bauval, in pursuit of a greater Mystery, encoded in myth and mystical architecture, hidden in plain sight throughout the ages.  The revelations provided are truly biblical in their ‘proportions’ and denote a hidden history and lost science which informs the very foundations of our modern world.

SGI:  You are best known for your documentary film, “Secrets in Plain Sight” which demonstrates the deliberate encoding of occulted numerology and symbology in the design of city grids, government institutions, corporate headquarters and temple structures throughout the planet.  For those unfamiliar with your work, please describe the purpose behind the film.

Secrets In Plain Sight is a series of films about art, architecture, and cities specifically designed to embody ancient wisdom.… Read the rest
