October 27th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

We’ve entered that final quarter of the year that always seems to throw me for a loop; too much early-age holiday trauma baggage overload plus probable Seasonal Affective Disorder melancholy from lack of sunlight. Whatever excuses I muster, the fact remains this is the only installment of the “weekly” email newsletter likely to come out this month, and the next couple of months will likely prove equally sparse for newsletter delivery; upcoming day job trips to Washington, D.C. (just after this reality-tv election season) and other factors continue to conspire againstYOU getting your weekly dose of Anomaly Archives Weirdness!

Anyway, onward towards the content of this issue…

Austin, Texas: Epicenter of America’s
Mass-Murder MemeQuake

tower-doc-poster-02

I am a survivor of a mass shooting (San Antonio’s 1979 Parade Shooting) and have been following closely the public and media’s reception to the new documentary, TOWER, about the 50 year old mass-shooting event that took place here in the dark heart of Texas. Early responses have been tremendously positive and last week I had the pleasure of attending the Austin History Center’s opening event launching there new 50th Anniversary exhibit. As the largest archive of materials related to this tragic event (and a venue I am long familiar with from my life in Austin and use of its public spaces for various anomalistic meetings) it was good to see them participating in facilitating a public discussion of the film and the events it chronicles. The Austin History Center hosted an engaging round-table featuring TOWER director Keith Maitland and legendary local newsman Neal Spelce. AHC staffers led a fascinating talk with Maitland and Spelce that further compelled me to make the effort to see this documentary during its limited theatrical release. I finally saw it with my wife this past weekend and we were both moved to tears throughout the movie. This is a powerful film that focuses on some of the stories of those there that day, weaving real archival footage together with digitally rotoscoped animation reenactments plus recent interview footage of those survivors whose stories are portrayed. As a fan of local filmmaker Linklater’s pioneering use of this animated rotoscoping process (as seen in his moviesWaking Life and A Scanner Darkly – both coincidentally featuring cameo’s by Alex Jones) I really appreciated the use of this animation technique for such a delicate documentary subject as this traumatic event. I highly recommend that people seek out and support this movie.

This edition’s Book-of-the-Week is one of the Contactee Classics: The Secret of the Saucers from Orfeo Angelucci. Ignoring the rumors of strange relations with sheep … was ole Orville dosed with psychedelics by government operatives? Inquiring minds want to know!

There are quite a few Anomaly Headlines of note for this installment:

Surreal Elections Season … I’m not the only one who’s noticed the rocketing rise of local conspiracy-media-mogul and fear-mongering radio show host Alex Jones, who has been catapulted into the stratosphere of mass public awareness propelled by this presidential election season’s contentious candidates and even the current pResident at the White House actually naming him in public speeches:Austin’s Alex Jones: The voice in Donald Trump’s head – Jonathan Tilove,American-Statesman

Keeping with the creeping paranoia… conspiracy theories galore have taken over the mainstream; from the global outbreak of Stalking-Clownspiracy to MSM coverage of Gang-Stalking claims (San Diego mom thinks she’s the victim of “community stalking” (Video) – ABC 10 News) coincident with the passing of critically acclaimed novelist Gloria Naylor (R.I.P. 1950-2016) who wrote about apparent government surveillance and harassment (listen to NPR’s Ed Gordon talks with Naylor about her ‘1996’: Under the Watchful Eye of the Government).

Book of the Week…
The Secret of the Saucers
By Orfeo Angelucci

secret-of-saucers-orfeo-angeluci

Nowadays we might be a little more circumspect than to accept spiked drinks from strangers, but Orfeo gladly accepts the glass and gulps the fizz down, immediately recognising it as the liquid ‘nectar’  given to him on previous meetings with the Space Beings, documented in his first book Secrets of the Saucers.

What Angelucci describes next sounds like a classic, benevolent psychedelic experience:

I thrilled from head to foot as I took the glass, lifted it to my lips, and swallowed twice from it. At that instant I entered, with Adam, into a more exalted state and everything around me took on a different semblance. No longer was I in Tiny’s cafe in Twentynine Palms. It had been transformed into a cozy retreat on some radiant star system. Though everything remained in its same position, added beauty and meaning were given to the things and people present there.

While it would be naive to treat the writings of a man who claims to have had multiple contacts with space beings as entirely unenhanced autobiography, I can’t help but wonder whether the alien visitation beliefs of Angelucci and others were being exploited, or even generated, by people working in one or other clandestine branches of the military or intelligence organisations. Perhaps the US Army’s Special Operations Division, which began experimenting with hallucinogens and chemical warfare in the 1940s, or the CIA, whose infamous MK-ULTRA programme, beginning in 1953 (with antecedents like Chatter, Bluebird and Artichoke operating from 1947) explored the use of drugs, hypnosis and radiation as tools for mind control.

ORFEO ANGELUCCI … always seemed to make the best impression in person of any of the mid-1950s contactees. The general impression I get from reading accounts of these gentlemen’s interview and platform styles is that George Van Tassel made the worst overall impression, speaking in a strained voice and never making eye contact with the audience (I diagnose stage-fright), while founding father George Adamski was always genial and laid-back, but Orfeo (also known as Orville) Angelucci radiated enthusiasm, sincerity and humility, in a very winning combination.  It didn’t hurt that Orville was thin and aesthetic-looking.  The usual contactee was a taxi-driver, mechanic or sign-painter in daily life, and it always showed. Angelucci didn’t found his own religious cult, unlike most of the contactees, but he did use his space-brotherly communications to give validation to the many strange ideas about physics, astronomy and biology that he had been “working on” for decades before his initial contact claims.

Book of the Week…

The Children of Mu
By James Churchward

Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularised by James Churchward (1851–1936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926),[2] re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931).[8] Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933).

Churchward claimed that “more than fifty years ago,” while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient “sunburnt” clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost “Naga-Maya language” which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from “the place where [man] first appeared—Mu.” The 1931 edition states that “all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets:” the clay tables he read in India, and a collection of 2,500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico.[8]:7

Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50,000 and 12,000 years ago, was dominated by a “white race,”[8]:48 and was “superior in many respects to our own”[8]:17 At the time of its demise, about 12,000 years ago, Mu had 64,000,000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies on the other continents.

Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east–west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north–south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu “was completely obliterated in almost a single night”:[8]:44 after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, “the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire” and was covered by “fifty millions of square miles of water.”[8]:50

Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims that the king of Mu was named Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, ra’a, which he incorrectly spells “raa.”[8]:48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in “Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries – it was a universal symbol.”[8]:138

Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found “depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins,” such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W.J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as “spheres” that “seem to show red in the distance”, and asserts that they “represent the Sun as Ra.”[8]:138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of “red sandstone”[8]:89 which does not exist on the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being “platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone,” which were supposedly left in their current positions “awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces.”[8]:89 He also cites the pillars “erected by the Māori of New Zealand” as an example of this lost civilization’s handiwork.[8]:158 In Churchward’s view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but are instead descendants of survivors of the cataclysm that adopted “the first cannibalism and savagery” in the world.[8]:54

Communion
A True Story
By Whitley Strieber

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3764

“The cover painting of an alien was rendered by Ted Seth Jacobs. The painting is considered one of the most widely recognized popular culture images of alleged “grey” aliens. “The Communion cover,” Jacobs recounts,

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3766“was painted in my small apartment on East 83rd St, in New York City. Whitley sat with me first for a drawing of the Alien. As I sketched, he would indicate how to change the portrait so that it would more match what he saw. It was, I believe, the process used by police sketch artists. Every last detail was corrected according to his instructions. At one point, he said the image corresponded exactly to what he had seen. With Whitley beside me for the subsequent session, I began to paint the image on a wooden prepared panel, going through the same process as for the drawing, until Whitley finally said the image was exact. … As to the gender of the Alien image, to tell the truth, the subject didn’t come up. I don’t even know if the ‘greys’ have gender as we understand it. Whitley corrected the developing image to have a certain fragility, a vulnerability. I suppose we Earthlings usually associate these qualities with femininity.”[2]

Paul Smith on Remote Viewing and UFOs

“Using one mystery to try to explain another: That’s what seems to be happening in the perpetual interplay between remote viewing (RV) and unidentified aerial phenomena–popularly known as UFOs–space aliens, and everything connected to them in the popular culture. This confluence of RV and UFOs goes back almost to the beginning of remote viewing itself, and not just the notorious, but some of the most prominent and respected members of the remote viewing community have indulged. Impossible to fully capture in one evening discussion, I nonetheless introduce you to the general outlines of the controversy, sketch for you the interrelationships of some of the main figures and their claims, show you some of the more provocative and interesting results, and explain the advantages and shortfalls of employing remote viewing to ferret out the truth of extraterrestrial visitation.”

Reading The Enemy’s Mind:
Inside Star Gate – America’s Psychic Espionage Program
By Paul H. Smith

“From behind the cloak of U.S. military secrecy comes the story of Star Gate, the project that for nearly a quarter of a century trained soldiers and civilian spies in extra-sensory perception (ESP). Their objective: To search out the secrets of America ‘s cold war enemies using a skill called “remote viewing.” Paul H. Smith, a U.S. Army Major, was one of these viewers. Assigned to the remote viewing unit in 1983 at a pivotal time in its history, Smith served for the rest of the decade, witnessing and taking part in many of the seminal national-security crises of the twentieth century.

With the Star Gate secrets declassified and the program mothballed by the Central Intelligence Agency, the story can now be told of the ordinary soldiers drafted onto the battlefield of human consciousness. Using hundreds of interviews with the key players in the Star Gate program, and gathering thousands of pages of documents, Smith opens the records on this remarkable chapter in American military, scientific, and cultural history. He reveals many secrets about how remote viewing works and how it was used against enemy targets. Among these stories are the search for hostages in Lebanon; spying on Soviet directed energy weapons; investigating the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland; tracking foreign testing of weapons of mass destruction; combating narco-trafficking off America’s coasts; aiding in the Iranian hostage situation; finding KGB moles in the CIA; pursuing Middle East terrorists; and more.

Between the lines in the official records are revelations about unrelenting attempts from within and without to destroy the remote viewing program, and the efforts that kept Star Gate going for more than two decades in spite of its enemies. This is a story for the believer and the skeptic—a rare look at the innards of a top secret program and an eye-opening treatise on the power of the human mind to transcend the limitations of space and time.”

August 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last issue… the newsletter will likely continue along in the near future in irregularly scheduled installments.

Successful anomalous events organized by and/or featuring friends and acquaintances have recently occurred across North America – sadly, I wasn’t able to attend any of them. These ranged from the Cryptozoological Dogman Symposium organized by Ken Gerhard (and featuring Nick Redfern, Lyle Blackburn and others) to the East Coast Paracon (featuring friends Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball, Aaron Gulyas, Tim Binnall, and others) and down here in Texas, theEdinburg “Out of this World” UFO Festival (organized by Noe Torres and featuring David Hatcher Childress, Nick Redfern, Ben Hansen, Lynne Kitei, and Stephen Andrasko).

Sadly, the field of UFO inquiry has lost another great seeker… Errol Bruce-Knapp. Many in the field of (what passes for) UFO “research” won’t know who he is but they should. I came to know of him through his moderation of one of the oldest and most important UFO email lists, UFO UpDates (Archives 1996-2013). You can learn more about him (including his involvement in off-shore Pirate Radio DJ years) and his important contributions facilitating communication and hosting a community of UFO truth seekers by listening to these interviews here (on the Spectrum Radio Network), and here (with fellow Canadian Paul Kimball). He hosted several terrestrial radio shows and transitioned to internet streaming and podcasting his Strange Days… Indeed (and Mind Shift) programs. I was honored to be a guest on his show back on September 11th, 2007 (MP3). Good luck finding all of his wonderful interviews of some of the best UFO researchers. Here you can listen to him talk with legendary Area-51 researcher Glen Campbell(MP3), who hosted Errol’s UFO UpDates list site (and maintains the Archives).

“It’s alive… ALIVE!!” Austin Mufon has been resurrected as MUFON-ATX.

A couple of weeks ago I was surprised to learn that the local MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) chapter had been re-launched and begun monthly meetings held way up in the furthest reaches of North West Austin. I was involved in Austin Mufon from about 1990 until 2012 when its chain of leadership was finally broken. I led the group from about 1999 – 2002.

Above: Robert Powell “shares about cases from Georgia, England, Utah, Iowa, New York, and Canada as well as information on the process of UFO investigations.”

I was excited to learn of these new monthly meetings and attended the second such meeting held on July 31st. The meetings are at 7pm on the last Sunday of each month at Palm Beach Vapors. July’s meeting featured Austinite and Mufon’s Director of Research / Founder & Leader of Mufon’s Science Review Board. Also present were Texas Mufon leaders Steve Hudgeons (Director of Investigations & former State Director of Texas) and Teresa Turner (State Director of Texas – and State Section Director). There were about a dozen attendees from around Austin and outside the Central Texas metro area. The highlight of the meeting was getting a sneak peak of Robert Powell’s upcoming presentation for the annualMufon Symposium 2016 – Orlando, FL – August 25th-28th whose theme is “UFOs From Our Oceans to Outer Space.” Robert’s presentation is MUFON’s Top 10 UFO Cases for 2015. You can watch this sneak preview thanks to another attendee I was glad to meet, Daniel Jones of the Vortexas Network, whom I’d briefly met a few months ago in Dallas at the ParaMania event.

For this installment of the Book-of-the-Week we feel it appropriate to highlight the aforementioned Robert Powell’s contribution to the printed knowledge-base of UFO history. Robert was kind enough to speak about that history to our Anomaly Archives audience in his Lecture in 2014 (Video).

Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives Saturday, August 27th from 1-3pm to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Coming up in September, the Anomaly Archives will be holding its annual Free Lecture Event. This year’s talk will be presented by former military Remote Viewer Paul Smith. Details Coming Soon!

Until next time…

Book of the Week…
UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry
By Michael D. Swords and Robert PowellWith contributions from Clas Svahn, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Bill Chalker, Barry Greenwood, Richard Thieme, Jan Aldrich, Steve Purcell
 ufos-and-govt
“Governments have been concerned about UFO sighting reports since WWII, but historians have never made a concerted attempt to understand their often contradictory responses to the phenomenon. How could something of such potential technological and national security consequence have left no visible trace in the history books? Whether it’s a conspiracy or not, the subject has been marginalized to such an extent that it’s as if the military never acted with alarm on the heels of a UFO sighting, as if the intelligence community never took up the issue behind closed doors, as if government research and development efforts never attempted to duplicate the phenomenon. But they have. Robert Powell will discuss how governments, especially the U.S. government, have dealt with the UFO phenomenon and will provide a hypothesis as to why the phenomenon took its roots during WWII.”

July 28th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

I’ve been reading a variety of print books lately, including Jacques Vallée’s latest published journals (Volume 3: 1980-1989), some rare writings of the late Bob Girard, as well as Whitley Strieber & Jeff Kripal’s latest effort. All of which (and more on my mind) get me thinking about fundamentals of UFO research and some of the earliest attempts at grappling with the mystery. Jacques Vallée’s first attempt is our Book-of-the-Week.

We say it each issue but … we hope you enjoy this newsletter and might consider supporting our efforts by Becoming a Member Today!

Book of the Week…
Anatomy of a Phenomenon
aka UFOs in Space
by Jacques Vallée
vallee-anatomy-phenomenon-01

Amazon.com reviews:

This is a classic work by a well known investigator / scientist / researcher that has been around for years. It represents the ‘old school’ if I may, style of Ufology, which is sorely lacking nowadays. Those were the days that a light in the sky (LIT) would be reason for me to run outside and mount a night long skywatch. No hints of implants, abductions, Roswell, Area 51, etc. I truly recommend this work for anyone who is just starting to learn about this forbidden subject (UFOs) and then take it from there, it will be worth the effort.

July 20th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Given the recent horrific up-tick in America’s Amok Murder-Suicide Rampage Epidemic and the broader global Amok-Season (Amoklauf Würzburg)… I don’t know where to begin or what to focus on, While TV shows as diverse as the original 1968 Hawaii Five-0 pilot episode (“Cocoon“) to the recent Netflix series Stranger Things have long featured isolation-tank brainwashing and MK-Ultra style mind control research, the mainstream media have lagged behind but seem to be finally catching up and taking notice of the vast growing population of people who consider themselves to be victims of psychotronic harassment, aka “T.I.s” (Targeted Individuals).

Long before 2016 Baton Rouge, Louisiana shooter Gavin Long (aka “Cosmo Setepenra”) and before Myron May’s 2014 Florida State University shooting and Aaron Alex’s 2013 Washington Navy Yard shooting, there was Ralph Tortoricci and Robert Joe Moody in 1994, and Scott Panetti in 1992 (and countless others). In the early 1990s I chronicled these alleged Mind Control Survivors within the Mind Kontrol Corner column of my E.L.F. Infested Spaces zine. In 2008 I wrote about (Guide By Voices – Anomaly Magazine) the verifiable research into and commercially available technology capable of inducing voices in the head and driving people crazy.

Perhaps John Keel’s warning in 1979 is coming true…

“Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?“

                 – UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, John Keel (1979)

Which reminds me, be sure to check out these latest Video Interviews – UT Tower Shootings: In their own words – A cop, a newsman and two students recount their experiences from that day.

Are these recent shootings and widespread mayhem the long-term fallout from MK-Ultra’s Legacy upon America’s and the world’s collective psyche? How many alleged and confirmed victims of MK-Ultra / Manchurian Candidate Mind Control must we endure?

MK-ULTRA’s Legacy?

[The above slides are from  Part Two of my UFOs & Consciousness – The Fantastic Facts About UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large, (Part One Here)]

Book-of-the-Week

With so much mainstream coverage of the old mind-controlled assassin meme flowing through the news right now, it seemed as appropriate time as any to highlight one of the most salacious and difficult to verify claims of victimhood at the hands of alleged MK-Ultra abuse networks, those of self-proclaimed “CIA Sex Slave” Cathy O’Brien and her conspiracy porn pulp-thriller, Trance-Formation of America. Reminiscent of the claims in the 1976 book The Control of Candy Jones, Cathy O’Brien’s tales caught fire within the right-wing militia / conspiracy culture of the 90s. While there exist reams of evidence for the many varied sub-projects of MK-Ultra, it is Cathy O’Brien who most popularized the claims of CIA child-abuse known as Project Monarch. However, to my knowledge, no such program has ever been verified with documentation the way that so many other Ultra projects have been. Nonetheless, just as there are many people who claim to be Targeted Individuals enduring Gang-Stalking and Electronic Harassment, so too are there many people who claim to have been subjected to ritual abuse networks (Satanic or otherwise) as part of a wide variety of mind control research projects.

The Anomaly Archives just happens to have an autographed copy of “The True Life Story of a CIA Mind Control Slave” signed by Cathy and co-author Mark Phillips.
It goes with out saying, but here I am saying it … Before reading further into the claims of alleged abuse survivor Cathy O’Brien, beware: TRIGGER WARNING!!

Meanwhile, please also check out links below to coverage of the recently released 28-Pages (PDF at intelligence.house.gov) showing much of what many of the best “911 Truthers” were saying all along; that there was a nexus of Saudi government & Bush family regime involvement in the September 11th attacks.
All this and more awaits you in the links below..

Mind Kontrol / Copycat Effects / Twilight Language / SynchroMysticism

“In an interview with a podcast host in March, Mr. Long identified himself as a member of the online community of so-called targeted individuals, people who believe they are being harassed with mind-control weapons and by armies of stalkers.”

 – Online Trail Illuminates Baton Rouge Gunman’s Path to Violence – Richard Fausset, Frances Robles and John Eligon, NYTimes.com

“Numbering in the thousands, the self-described targeted individuals, or T.I.s, say that they are being tortured with mind-control weapons and put under surveillance by armies of covert agents known as gang stalkers.” …

“Yet Mr. Long’s attack represented at least the third recent mass shooting to be associated with people who believed they were being targeted by a government conspiracy. Myron May, who in 2014 shot three people at Florida State University, left behind videos in which he meticulously described his experience of being gang-stalked. And many members of the movement believe that Aaron Alexis, who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard in 2013, also identified as a targeted individual.”

July 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

After my weeklong “staycation” it’s back to the grind of the ole day job. The week’s nearly over but between work and world events … well, it’s enough to drive a person to drink. Luckily enough, marketing gurus have seen the light and offer a bevy of beverages with some adult kick!

As I’ve mentioned before, the origins of my personal Cargo Culture Collection of weird UFO & Alien themed knick-knacks arises from Other People’s Compulsion to give such trinkets to me because of my lifelong UFO-Obsession (and membership in Anomaloholics Anonymous; the Anomaly Archives’ secret Double-AA-Entendre).

So it’s no surprise when a family member shows up with some Outer Space Vodka bottle shaped like the archetypal Big-Headed Black-Almond-Shape-Eyed Alien but with old-school Gaian Green Glass instead of the Dull Modernist Gray/Grey. So I make the best of the situation and combine it with some Bloody Revolution Bloody-Mary Mix and film it all in slow-motion! I’m not joking – check out the videos here: Outer Space (Alien Head) Vodka & Bloody Revolution Bloody-Mary Mix: Parts ZeroOneTwoThree, & Four
While yet again at the liquor store (I should own stock) I see a cool zine-scene-like newsletter with an early 1900s flair. The title and headline catch my eye:

the Unusual Times
– A Review Of All Things Unusual –
History’s Greatest Hoaxes

Apparently, the Hendrick’s Gin company have a whole “Society of the Unusual” marketing strategy. I wonder if it’s just the brainchild of the advertising firm or if there might be a core of actual Anomalist / Fortean / Zetetic interest somewhere at the heart of the company? Nah! Probably not.

BTW – This issue of the Anomaly Archives eNews has NOT been brought to you by any alcoholic beverage sponsorship – though we might be open to that.

Until next week… “May We Live In Unusual Times.” Cheers!

Book of the Week…

Anacalypsis:
An attempt to draw aside the veil of the Saitic Isis
Or an inquiry into the origin of languages, nations, and religions

Volumes One & Two – 1836

By Godfrey Higgins

“The work is the product of more than twenty years of research, during which Higgins tried to uncover “a most ancient and universal religion from which all later creeds and doctrines sprang”.[1] It includes several maps and lithographic plates of Druidical Monuments. The book itself details many of Higgins’ beliefs and observations about the development of religion. Among these was his theory that a secret religious order, which he labeled “Pandeism” (from Pans- or Pandu- referring to a family of Gods, appending with -ism), had continued from ancient times to the present day, stretching at least from Greece to India, and possibly having once covered the entire world:

“All this seems to confirm the very close connexion which there must have been in some former time, between Siam, Afghanistan, Western Syria, and Ireland. Indeed I cannot doubt that there has been really one grand empire, or one Universal, one Pandæan, or one Catholic religion, with one language, which has extended over the whole of the world; uniting or governing at the same time…”

Among the many unusual theories presented in this book is that both the Celtic Druids and the Jews originated in India – and that the name of the Biblical Abraham is really a variation of the word Brahma, created by shifting the last letter to the beginning: Abrahma. Higgins used the term “Pandeism” to describe the religious society that he purported had existed from ancient times, and at one time had been known throughout the entire world. Higgins believed this practice continued in secret until the time of his writing, in the 1830s in an area stretching from Greece to India.”
