Long before I discovered the Forbidden Letters to Philip Gardiner and Gary
Osborn, I asked myself what chakra's could be made of. Are they photonic?
Subtle? Or matter gross after all? And what are you and I made of in the first
With Eric Olson 'I don't mean our chemical composition here. I want to know
whether we are made of matter at all.' [2007:13] Or whether we are made of
something other than matter. 'Or partly matter and partly something else. Come
to that, are we made of anything at all?' [ibid]
The alchemical theory of the Paris 4, as well as the numerous
response-articles on that theory, all seem to imply that whatever we are made of
ends with death. Nihil post mortem: there is nothing after death. Yet,
many people around the globe claim to have had Near Death Experiences, or NDE's.
Experiences suggesting that the Paris 4 could be wrong if they assume that the
soul, our psychic tissue, dies with our body. - But are NDE's about death?
On page 138 of Timothy Ferris' 1992 book The Mind's Sky, Ferris
informs us about a Swiss NDE dating from 1871. In that year the Zurich Alpinist
Professor Albert Heim fell from an alpine glacier while climbing at an altitude
of 5,900 feet. He saw his whole past life 'take place in many images while
falling.' [Ferris] 'Everything was transfigured as though by a heavenly light
and everything was beautiful, without grief, without anxiety, and without pain.'
Now, a climber falling from a cliff is not dead. 'He is not even ailing. He
is fully fit and is near death only in the sense that he has every reason to
expect that he is about to die. If, as we have seen, the mental
transfigurations he experiences closely resemble modern near death accounts,
then the NDE phenomenon tells us about trauma, not death. And if it doesn't tell
us about death,
it doesn't tell us about life after death either.' [Ferris/emphasis added]
It appears then, as Ferris says, and I would agree here, that the
physiological basis of a Near Death Experience is stress: the human nervous
system releasing a deluge of chemicals into the bloodstream in response to a
life threatening situation.
'So how do you guys know all this? That gay's can't handle kundalini for
instance?' [Hermetic Research]
'The practice of homosexuality pollutes the energies of the chakras, spills
the kundalini fires into vortices of deceleration, and causes the three-fold
flame to be incrementally lost, which is the worst form of imbalance. Because
the practice of homosexuality causes the disintegration of the spiritual life
support systems of man, the lifestyle must be forsaken if the soul is ever to
take and master the initiations necessary to return home to the sacred heart.
The return to the sacred heart is our passport home to the divine city, the
Kingdom of God, which is the only context for eternal life.' [The Homeward Bound
'Homophobic myths are even more creative than anti-Semitic ones.' [Heinrich
'Read a book where it was mentioned that a study was done in San Francisco
where 50 straights and 50 homosexual people were filmed having sex with Kirlian
photography. The straights exchanged noticeable amounts of energy, and the same
sex partners did not. This would fall in line with sexual alchemy which is
defined as the divine union of opposites.' [ www.abovetopsecrets.com
'It has escaped most people that the Divine Sex leading to the Alchemical
Wedding is sex between the inner male and female, and that it has,
therefore, nothing to do with heterosexual sex. In the words of Otto Reich: 'male
and female belong together. But not in bed.' [Günter Preis in an email

'As Stephen Jay Gould and Ashley Montagu suggest, it is through neoteny, as
well as through natural selection, and random mutation - that man has evolved.
This is true morphologically as well as rationally and emotionally. Montagu
writes that neoteny is "the retention into adult life of those human traits
associated with childhood."- ' [Stanley Carruth]
According to Timothy Materer 'Robert Duncan and James Merrill found in the
occult art of alchemy a lost understanding of sexual identity that tolerated
rather than repressed androgyny
and homosexuality. '[Timothy Materer, Cornell University Press,
Dec. 1995:12/ emphasis added]
The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung seems to have been the first physician who
realized that homosexuality might possibly be about psychic androgyny.
In paragraph 146 of 'Concerning the Archetypes and the Anima Concept' he
conjectures that homosexuality might represent an 'incomplete detachment from
the hermaphroditic archetype, coupled with a distinct resistance to identify
with the role of a one-sided sexual being, (...) preserving the archetype of the
Original Man, which a one sided sexual being has, up to a point, lost.'
In their March 2007-article on the Forbidden Letters at World Mysteries, de
Renzi, Fenelon and de la Censerie, quoting Wilson and Rachman from their 1998
book Born Gay, pointed out that...
'...evidence from independent laboratories across the world has shown that
the brain of gay men and lesbian women are cross-sex shifted in certain
respects more than those of heterosexuals.'
This all seems confirmed in a June 2008 Sunday Times article by
Science Editor Jonathan Leake. 'Scientists investigating human sexuality have
found that the brains of homosexuals have structural and functional differences
from those of "straight" people. Lesbians appear to have a lower
proportion of grey matter in their brains than straight women, giving their
brains a more “male-like” structure. The brains of gay men appear to have
structural similarities to those of heterosexual women. They also exhibit the
same powerful response as straight women to the sex hormones released in male
sweat.(...) In one study researchers (...) at University College London used
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (...) to look at the brains of 80 men and women,
including 16 gay men and 15 lesbians. They found that lesbians had a
“male-like” proportion and distribution of grey matter in their brain when
compared with heterosexual women.
In a paper published in the Public Library of Science, the researchers said:
“In homosexual women the perirhinal cortex grey matter displayed a
male-like structural pattern.” The perirhinal area is associated with social
and sexual behavior.' [Sunday Times]
Seven months earlier another article on homosexuality, this time by Richard
Brooks, had been published in the Sunday Times. In that article it was suggested
that the inner child in homosexual people is more alive then in heterosexual
people. That child allegedly has to be peeled out in a certain crisis in
alchemy, the ludus puerorum or Play of the Children. According to Jung that
'child lurkes in every adult,'[1970:311] representing 'exactly that part of the
human personality which wants to become whole.' [ibid] That child is also called
puer aeternus (eternal boy). Brooks:
'Desmond Morris who became a bestselling author by applying zoology to
explain human behaviour, has now utilised the techniques to put forward an
explanation for homosexuality. In his latest book, The Naked Man, he concludes
that men are “made gay” because they retain infantile or juvenile
characteristics into adulthood - a phenomenon known as neoteny. [emphasis
(...) Morris points to work done by Clive Bromhall, who produced some of his
“Gays do infantile behaviour in the extreme,” said Bromhall, who, after
gaining a PhD in zoology from Oxford, left academia to form a company making
Morris (...) long thought that absent fathers led to boys and young male
adults becoming gay.
“(It is) the dominant and ever-present mother theory,” he said. “But
now I’m convinced that (theory) is wrong, and that it is neoteny which makes
people gay." [Morris] - '[Sunday Times]
