'The transformation of energy and the elixir of life refer to the Self, the
ordering and unifying center of the total psyche, the central source of life
energy, the foundation of our being, which is most simply described as God.'
[Edward Edinger in Ego and Archetype/edited by RFC]
'In the fourth century Nicean Creed [not in the canonical version/RFC], Jesus
fought the serpent, descended into hell for three days and was reborn,
fully divine, from this experience in the underworld. There are echoes
of the Apollo/Indra expiation here.' [Drake Stutesman in Snake/S
'September 4 1986: resurrection.
a) Our man is on the floor on his back. He had his eyes closed during the whole
resurrection. A 'thread' (very thin) is closing around his neck. The head is
decapitated by that 'thread'.
b) The stone is produced about where the liver is. The stone ignites the
Kundalini fire (the fire can actually be heard) and starts to move about,
increasingly violently. Fire getting stronger. Arms and legs break into pieces.
c) The snake is driven out. Our friend doesn't know where it went.
Up the spine, but after that: no clue. (Into the earth?)
d) The wheel starts to spin and is raised to the forehead.
e) One starts to descend into the earth. After 2 minutes our
man 'fell asleep' or passed out in another hypnagogic way. Hypnagogic, because
he couldn't remember that moment the morning after. If you lose consciousness
you remember. So he 'fell asleep'.
f) 10.30 in the morning. He woke up. Coccyx and back of the head firmly attached
to the floor. As said before, it took him about 30 minutes to free himself.
g) September 5 1986 : the top-chakra opens.' [The Paris 4/italics ours]
'There is nothing gnostic about alchemy. Gnosticism is dualistic,
alchemy monistic. The alchemists only used gnosticism to drop their seeds.'
[ New York City - Washington Square Arch ]
It has been proposed by the Paris 4, although with reservations
[see footnote 1], that only certain homosexuals [see footnote 2] possess
the necessary balance of the microcosmic male and female [see footnote 3] to
safely conduct the forces of resurrection[see footnote 4]. Resurrection
being phase one of the Great Work of Alchemy: the furnace of Kundalini. A work
serving deification of a human being from within, and possibly, through such a
human being then, of all of creation in the end too, if creation is in reality
microcosmic, and the world hence...
'... my projection.' [Schopenhauer]
This is intriguing, homosexuality being a requirement for apotheosis, since
so little seems known about the cause of homosexuality. Because in spite of the
'... the accumulation of evidence from independent laboratories across the
world has shown that the biological differences between gay and straight people
cannot be ignored...' [Wilson and Rahman in Born Gay/BG hereafter]
... and we also know that...
'...sexual orientation is largely determined by the time of birth, partly by
genetics, but more specifically by hormonal activity in the womb arising from
...it remains a mystery...
'...how homosexuality could survive in the face of evolutionary forces*,
especially given its genetic component.' [BG]
[*Alchemy is evolution proper. [The CE2] [see footnote 5]
In their brain...
'...gay men are found to be more like women, and lesbians show similarities
to men.' [BG] The brain of gay men and lesbian women...
'...seems to be cross-sex shifted in certain respects, more than those of
These fascinating details will of course not keep religions from saying that
'...stubbornly sinful people, whose behaviour is an affront to the divine
plan.' [BG] A song that has been sung since the dawn of time. Burns for
example reminds us that...
'...in ancient Egypt Set was worshipped with obscene homosexual rituals. We
are told that the rituals performed for Set and Sirius [see footnote 6] were so
horrible and debased, that later rulers of Egypt defaced their temples and
obelisks.' But even in our age...
'...arguments against the spiritual validity of homosexual rites can be found
in the writings of modern exponents of Wicca, Thelema, Qabalah, and the Western
Esoteric Tradition in general.' [Hine] Wendy Doniger points out that...
'...homosexual love represents what Mary Douglas has taught us to recognize
as a major category error. Something that doesn't fit into any existing
cubbyhole. "Matter out of place". In a word: dirt.' Doniger tells
us we may...
'...do well to recall the ways in which homophobic language often employs
dirt-symbolism. Traditional religious texts regard the homosexual union as a
mutually polluting combination of the worst of both worlds: sterility and lust.'
It is therefore suggested within the internet-discussion on the alchemical
theory of the Paris 4 that the Stone of Alchemy 'lies in dirt' and 'is rejected
by the builders' (we all!) because of the possible homosexual connection. A
suggestion Gary Osborn sees as...
'...quite unique and a revolutionary explanation.'
An explanation he's...
'...trying to get his head around.'
If the Gospel [see http://www.world-mysteries.com/PhilipGardiner/forbidden_letters_16.htm
] is 'but a vehicle for alchemy', and homosexuality a requirement for
alchemy, then the somewhat gay impression the mythical figure of Christ gives us
(God knows what has been removed by the church during the Dark Ages), would
be explained: the alchemist writer wanting to communicate the secret connection
between homosexuality and the Work of the Sun in the Solar Hero.
'When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he
loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. After that, he saith to
the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to
his own.' [John 19:26,27]
A few weeks ago though an apparent Dan Brown fan on a French Forum on
which the Forbidden Letters were discussed sent us a PM asking...
'Why would Jesus be gay and kiss Mary Magdalene on her mouth? Why would she
be called the companion of the saviour 'loved by Him more than all the
disciples and often kissed on her mouth?' This doesn''t sound like a gay Jesus
This kissing on the mouth though needn't have a sexual connotation. The
Gnostics saw a kiss on the mouth as a symbol for transmitting secret knowledge.
And Mary Magdalene isn't the only one who gets secret knowledge transmitted in
that way. In the Second Apocalypse of James for example Jesus kisses James on his
mouth too, transmitting knowledge.
'And He kissed my mouth. He took hold of me, saying: My beloved! Behold, I
shall reveal to you those things that neither heavens nor their archons have
In his Evangelical Myths Robertson has probably shed important light on
the many Marys of Jesus, when he informs us that this relation points to an old
'.. where a god of Palestine appears in the changing
relation of lover and son towards a mythical Mary. This is a natural process in
the oldest theosophy, and one which appears with variations in the myth of
Mithra, Adonis, Attis, Osiris and Dionisius, all of whom were brought into
relation (or combination) with mother goddesses, and who appear either as a
consort, or as a feminine eidolon.'
('The sequence of seven paintings by Fra Angelico of the seven stages of Mary
illustrate the way in which the two Marys, the "virgin" and the
"sinner" Magdalene complement one another as the Goddess counterpart
of Jesus as the dying and resurrected God. It is as if they are really
manifestations of the more ancient Aphrodite-Mari. Notice the transfiguration
and subsequent humiliation of the sacred king reccuring as central motifs, just
as the Babylonian king was annually humiliated.' [Morante and Baldini])
So much for the alchemist writer of the New Testament having dumped as many
circum-mediterranean saviour-themes as possible in his work. So it would appeal,
both consciously and unconsciously, to as many people as possible. Yes,
'...hardly a hero or myth of importance that cannot be traced in that basket
we call the Gospel.' [Onny]
'The terrestrial sun [i.e. the one in space/RFC] is only the image or
reflection of the invisible, celestial sun.' [Franz Hartmann in the Secret of
'Soma and fire are entirely identical in Hindu literature. The drink of
immortality was stirred by the the Hindu Gods like fire.' [Carl Jung in
Psychology of the Unconscious]
Carl Jung, in spite of all his brilliance, completely missed...
'...the deeper level of Resurrection.'[S] And thereby the deeper level of
alchemy. Jung describes Resurrection as...
'... a re-establishment of human existence after death.' [Concerning
Rebirth/CR hereafter] He failed to see that rebirth and resurrection are one and
the same thing.*
[*One is resurrected from the dead, meaning from the not through holy fire
(kundalini) reborn, and thereby reborn in that fire. Hence 'through baptism by
fire, man, who was before dead, is made a living soul' [aurora consurgens]. The
term Resurrection is misleading and was only created by religions who thought we
are to be resurrected after our biological death. The correct term would be
Erection. From the ones around us not reborn through kundalini-fire.]
Jung is furthermore of the opinion that rebirth is not a process we can...
'...in any way observe. It is entirely beyond sense perception.'[CR] He
thinks we have to do here with...
'...a purely psychic reality, which is transmitted to us only indirectly
through personal statement. One speaks of rebirth, one professes rebirth, one is
filled with rebirth. This we accept as sufficiently real.' [CR] He even
conjectures (at the age of 58!), that the Mass is...
'... an extramundane and extra-temporal act in which Christ is sacrified and
in the transformed substances.' [CR/italics ours]
And assures us...
'...this rite of his sacrificial death is not a repetition of the historical
event, but the original, unique and eternal act.' [CR/italics ours]
This all shows how hidden alchemy is. And this must not surprise us. Nobody
could have cracked the codes of alchemy in Jung's days. Because alchemy, in its deifying
quality, is strictly a Latter Day event. As Jay Weidner and Vincent Bridges,
the authors of A Monument to the End of Time, tell us...
'...alchemy is somehow connected to eschatology, that is, the timing of the
end of the world.'
And it is, in our opinion, through the Forbidden Letters we now
know how those two exactly are connected.
'When we examine the Resurrection narratives, it is obvious that they cannot
be reconciled. This is strong evidence for the theory that the resurrection
never took place, but gradually grew as a legend among the early Church.' [van
'The Christianity that emerged in the first to fourth century was a
reinterpreted synthesis of the religious worldviews of the ancient Mediterranean
world.' [Radford Ruether in Goddesses]
'The Gospel never happened.' [The Paris 4]
1] 'It was this man who said to our gay man that 'only certain homosexuals
posess the necessary balance of the microcosmic male and female to safely
conduct the kundalini-fire'. We failed to point that out. If one just reads the
Letters and part 2 as published, one might think that we had some kind of
'divine revelation' on this.'[The Paris 4]
2] 'All possible connections between deification through alchemy and
homosexuality will have been effectively removed from art and literature in the
past 5000 years. The best I could do was Springmeyer and his 'Sodomy has it's
own secret chamber on the caballistic Tree of Life'.' [Pierre de Beaumont]
3] 'We hear of Christ's androgyny in Catholic mysticism.' [Carl Jung in
Archetypes and the collective Unconscious]
4] 'The theory would be then that macrocosmic androgyny is needed to host
microcosmic androgyny created through the alchemical wedding. That only the
macrocosmic hermaphrodite, and we are talking about a psychological
hermaphrodite here, can support the microcosmic hermaphrodite: Shiva and Shakti
united. (The terms androgynous and hermaphroditic are interchangeable here.)' [Duquesnoy/presented
with kind permission/partially edited and italics by RFC]
5] 'Hart’s essential theory was not new but some of his associated ideas
and theories to support his argument were. He alleged that Darwin’s theory of
Evolution could not be correct, as there wasn’t one missing link, there were
hundreds if not thousands, and that there must be another explanation as to how
Mankind got here and developed.
At the same time, he pointed out that somewhat strangely, there were six
areas of population scattered across the globe that almost out of nowhere, and
starting 10,000 years ago, suddenly erupted into developed civilization. They
went, almost overnight historically speaking, from being hunter/gatherers to
sophisticated farmers. They sowed crops, the crops we still grow today, which
seemed to appear from nowhere and whose original wild variants we have still not
identified.' [Stuart Miller/italics ours]
6] 'The term Sethians, as used by Hippolytus, is not only puzzling on this
account, but also because his summary differs entirely from the scraps of
information on the system of the Sethites supposed to have been mentioned in his
lost Syntagma, and allied to the doctrine of the Nicolaïtans by the
epitomizers. In the latter fragments the hero Seth was chosen as the type of the
good man, the perfect, the prototype of Christ. Can it possibly be that there is
a connection between the name "Seth" and the mysterious "Setheus"
of the Codex Brucianus? And further, are we to look for the origin of the
Sethians along the Egyptian line of tradition of the Hyksos-cult, the Semitic
background of which made Seth the Mystery-God?' [ http://www.sacred-texts.com/gno/fff/fff29.htm
