That Voodoo That You Do

The Vicar recently had a dream, sent to him by some capricious sprite for the Heavens know what reason. Dryads belong in vast woodlands, and not in the human head. Synchronic resonances have been echoing. The Brotherhood of Athena’s Men (and we are not all men) has many recent reports of whispers and shifts and changes in the force patterns of the globe. Something small but powerful is moving, and a connection long thought dead has proved instead to be very much alive. We have been hearing for a very long time from the less-civilized, more organic practitioners that the Earth herself is angry.

The question before us is simple: to what should we be paying attention? Which changes and echoes have merit and value, and which ones are but passing hints of fires that once were; tattered smoke fading against the sky?
Earth spirits are a particularly interesting lot, often forcing us to acknowledge their reality when we least wish to. Of late, there have been some disturbing events in the U.S. and abroad – in particular, in Shenzhen, China, where some of the Vicar’s brethren have at least temporarily located their operations. Most of these events center around sudden formations of sinkholes and related phenomena. The mundane explanations are as always perfectly accurate insofar as they go. But this is always the center of any occult or paranormal issue: the scientific or skeptical purist insists that mechanisms alone are sufficient explanations. The seeker recognizes that describing a mechanism is never the same as providing explanation for a cause.

Who is the ghost in your machine?

Take, for example, this event, occurring about four days ago in Russia. From a little further back, we have this interesting experience that killed a man in Florida. Then, there’s the recent South China event that really got Athena’s Men talking about the phenomena. Is the Earth eating people?
The point of things occult is never that they do not have a perfectly reasonable explanation, but rather that elements of reporting and occurrence like frequency and attentional market share sometimes make simple, otherwise normal events into very paranormal stories. Why have there been so many sinkhole stories, lately? What exactly is the Earth’s problem with us that it is suddenly swallowing people up? Perhaps Poseidon is angry, or perhaps the ancient mythic Chinese belief that a giant spirit frog is responsible has some merit?
Lest the dear reader think that the Vicar is the only one who has noticed a significant uptick in this kind of catastrophe, I submit this NBC news report for your consideration: Yes, even the mainstream media has noticed that the ground keeps opening up and eating people at an elevated rate.

Among the ancients, this kind of event was neither darkly funny nor easily brushed aside as “natural phenomena”. From a strictly objective, rationalist perspective, all things are natural phenomena, since they all occur in the real universe as functions of the cosmic systems that govern our existences. Even the weirdest things fit within an overarching framework of the laws of physics. In our public lives, members of occult orders are sometimes even called upon by media or investigatory bodies to reassure the public that events like these are nothing out of the ordinary. But the truth is a different matter; human beings in modern societies rarely play official or accepted roles that reflect their true natures and inclinations. The whole point of living in a society is to adopt a socially acceptable and utterly fabricated identity. This was to some extent less true in early incarnations of the human social order, and perhaps this is why the ancients were so “superstitious” as we would render it. They had the good common sense to note when weird shit was happening, and label it as such.
In conclave, occult wizards will sometimes discuss why it is that a particular phenomena has bubbled to the surface of the collective consciousness. A while back, we were contending with this emergent “Zombie Craze” that never amounted to a damned thing. Currently, we’ve been addressing the whole, “earth swallows you whole” phenomenon. But all of this is window dressing, bound to distract the curious and the more invested researcher from the bigger picture. Here at the Lamp, we focus on the overridingly important element of themes. When a theme is emergent in our world, it is the mechanism by which this happens that ends up mattering far more than the specific and individual events themselves.

The real question is, why do so many people like the idea of a large percentage of humanity turning into undead, flesh-eating monsters that it’s okay to decapitate with a katana?

Zombies are a big deal in pop culture these days, so there is a perfectly valid social-psychology argument to be made for the weirder people out there getting too attached to the cultural messages and being carried off by their own internalized fantasies. The same argument is applicable to matters of religious visions, UFO sightings, and cryptozoological encounters. What these really constitute are ready and easy means by which those tasked with exploring and studying the world may ignore completely those events and occurrences that do not fit with established wisdom. Ergo, a scientist need not investigate reports involving factors in apparent violation of established scientific laws. Witches do not exist, because important people who do not believe in witches say so.
A serialization of events can often be discarded or otherwise ignored out of hand by those who are paid to spend  all of their time ignoring anything even slightly out-of-the-ordinary. This is the point of being employed as a professional skeptic. Heads of medical schools and/or biology departments are not about to acknowledge that something like a zombie is a reasonable concern in modern life. Yet, we have the tale of Luka Rocca Magnotta from last year. This individual is accused of killing and eating a Chinese international student. In the mental health business, we refer to that kind of behavior as “having issues”. But in the paranormal community and the world of occult orders, we recognize a demonic inhabitation when we see one.

A key component of the practice of real magic centers upon the recognition of higher forces. We talk often here at the Lamp of the existence of beings otherwise invisible to us, and known as the “Others”. These are not meant to be merely a monstrous, creepy backdrop supportive of horror fiction plots. Instead, this is a catchall term for the varying beings and perhaps even species that must inhabit our universe due to the laws of probability and the general trend of evolutionary biology as we currently understand it and are capable of imagining it. By extrapolation, if the development of a large and highly active brain is an indication of evolutionary advancement and success, then the basis for thought – electrochemical interactions – might also be understood to be subject to the same evolutionary forces. On a long enough timescale, a species might evolve beyond the need for physical, material bodies and structures at all. This is hardly a new idea, and not particularly revolutionary. But it is one to which wise individuals pay attention, because in a vast cosmos, it is so likely as to be a foregone conclusion that such entities exist. That they might additionally be able to either travel to our world, or already inhabit it (whatever that would actually mean for such a being), is also very likely.
DMT trippers will sometimes describe beings called, “machine elves” that are variously described. Sometimes they are perceived by the drug-user as akin to Gray aliens, or as beings not unlike the praying mantis. They are as likely to be real as anything seen under conditions imposed by an altered state of consciousness, and those who scoff at such things would do well to remember that religions the world over are generally founded upon the visions of those who in the modern world would be regarded as either insane,   “under the influence”, or deeply mendacious. If we rule out active madness and the desire to simply deceive (although these are equally valid, we should recall), we are left with the possibility that the use of psychedelic drugs in spirituality may be for unlocking elements of perception not typically accessed. It is possible that this connects one to an understanding of the world that the conscious, uninfluenced mind is at best ill-prepared for.

Something not dissimilar to this makes space and time orderly and operational.

Demons, angels, gods, spirits and other such things may indeed be nothing more than imaginary explanations for unpleasant or unexplained realities. They may additionally be explainable as aliens in the way “Ancient Alien Theorists suggest.” But it is actually a cosmic certainty that energetic consciousness operating free of any material anchor is out there somewhere. That being the case, we have to give some consideration to the possibility that so-called “glitches in the matrix” are not glitches at all. Rather, they are caused in some cases by beings with considerable power and motives quite beyond our immediate understanding. If a condition exists for which rational explanation falls short – such as the sudden emergence of high-profile sinkhole stories, reflective of an abnormal number of actual sinkholes forming – then other avenues of exposition and discussion must be pursued.
All of this ends up turning on ideas common in Vodun, the composite religion of a great many people worldwide. Some people come to the Lamp for entertainment, others because the internet does shit like that to people if they aren’t careful enough in their searches, and still others for direct instruction in the true secrets of the mystic arts. The Ars Arcanum recognize the validity of Vodun, and for good reason. This is a composite cosmology of shockingly profound and structured logic coupled with sound magical science. If one is not amenable to a term such as “magical science,” as always, that’s cool with the Vicar. You are welcome to go to another site where you can expect to be validated in your objection to such things.

Meanwhile, in the real world, sometimes things are unexplainable by mundane argument. Systems like Vodun recognize that there are a great many “spirits” in the world and beyond it, with which mortal humans must sometimes contend or else have congress should certain conditions, events, or occurrences be desired. One of the underlying tenets of Vodun has been described to the Vicar in his varied and far-ranging educational experiences in the following terms: Vodun is so real that it is a valid factor in all experiences whether mortals accept the proposition or not. This runs so closely to Jung’s famous, “God will be present whether invited or not,” line that it bears thinking about. The most ancient human approach to understanding the universe includes recognition of the Others. This is really the only rational way to view the universe. If a sinkhole opens under your feet, it could be the result of shoddy construction or subsurface water, from a purely mechanistic view. But the deep seeker knows that this is a discussion of process, rather than a discussion of cause. We should never even bother to ask why the sinkhole opened, since mechanisms and processes will be raised by way of explanation. The more important queries involve matters like, “Why at this particular time?” and “Why did this happen to this particular person?”
Another underlying principle operating in all of this is the idea that individual people have an influence upon the energetic web that all life is considered to be connected by. This idea is primarily salient in Native American shamanic usage, but it is also a factor in Vodun and in a variety of other more occult theories that embrace the notions of elder mystical paths. Connectivity is rendered as a conceptual force in synchronicity theory, and the more causal approaches to connectivity often are unable to address at all the weird habit things have of organizing themselves such that human beings recognize non-causal connections based in meaning, metaphor, and personal interpretations.

We come now full circle on our path, to the realization that systems like Vodun offer interpretations and explanations of a sort often more revelatory and satisfactory to our ears than those provided by mainstream science and the establishment point of view so loudly trumpeted in all official things. Additionally, the “zombie” came to the modern world from Vodun, and it has clearly succeeded in penetrating beyond the fringes of collective perception. Collective awareness consists in some sort of energetic field – this we know absolutely within the occult schools, since we can do things with it and “read” the collective will to some degree. But what that energy is, and how precisely it works, we have few viable theories for. Perhaps the best explanation is the Shamanic “Web of Life” in which the energies of all beings – organic and otherwise – are woven together.
In the Vodun understanding of things, we do not actually have to believe in the spirits in order for them to have validity with respect to our lives. In fact, we are sometimes utterly defenseless against such things precisely because we trust to skepticism rather than in our own spiritual power and the protective powers of higher orders of positive beings. No less, the human collective consciousness appears also to be directly referenced by Vodun practitioners, since there is an understanding that what we collectively note, make significant, and otherwise concern ourselves with has the power to manifest itself. Cycles of emergence can thereby be generated, and these can be very dangerous when the emergent factors in question are negative occurrences or destructive events.
Did someone unleash a spirit on a mission to swallow up people whole in the belly of terra firma? Or did the first reported event cause people to concern themselves excessively with the matter, thereby setting up a kind of causation resonance that allowed for more sinkhole formation? The mechanisms are – again – largely secondary to this discussion. The earth is “eating” people and we can easily learn by what process a hole opens up in what appears otherwise to be solid ground. Have these holes been opening because we expected them to? Did the rash of “zombie” attacks occur because we were fascinated with them and anticipated a “copycat effect”? Do the “spirits” really draw power from our expectations and concerns as most animistic faiths would argue? Superstitions abound in most cultures regarding avoidance of certain trouble-borrowing behaviors like speaking ill of the dead, predicting negative outcomes to courses and events, and cursing the spirit world.

Victims of weird deaths, accidents, and afflictions are often identified as positive individuals who were doing nothing at all wrong just prior to their death, maiming, or the emergence of an illness. But the old medical-spiritual mechanics of Chinese medicine, for instance, argues that this is an unlikely assertion at best. How is it possible for a bad thing to happen to a good person in a just universe? The simple answer is that the universe is not just at all. But to certain thinkers informed by a more spiritual, animistic point of view, the universe is inherently just. It and the denizens of the spirit realms may not exist to punish us, but rather it is the case that when we undertake certain actions or patterns of behavior, we weaken the normal protective psychic patina that otherwise defends us against intrusion or manipulation by one of the Others. This same patina can be understood as stronger or greater from individual to individual, and the weird immunity of some magic users to the negative effects of causation, synchronicity, and spell casting may be most readily explained in this way.
It is often described as being the opinions and beliefs of the collective conscious that shape and mold what is possible and what transpires in the world. What we will has some significant influence on the real environments that we choose to surround ourselves with. Fads and phenomena in the psychological, social, political, and entertainment communities often embrace this fundamental outlook without ever acknowledging it – firm argument in support of the idea that at the head of each cultural structure is a collective or hierarchy of occultists. Concerns over “toxic people”, “toxic relationships”, “negative thinking”, and a host of other considerations are reflections of a deeper understanding of this universe and our place within it. If we “think positively” we are probably much more likely to weather the random storms of life. But we may also be reinforcing our own spiritual armor. This is the Voodoo that you do without ever realizing that you do it. So too, you embrace ideas similar to those found in Vodun when you ascribe a personality and a will to inanimate objects. The car that we ask to keep on running long after it should have found a new home in a junkyard is only one example. Our prayers may have greater weight than any mainstream scientific viewpoint would ever permit.
As it is said in every major monotheistic faith – and in every system accepting the existence of minor and major spirits – “Prayer works.”
The only important question is this: Who is answering our prayers?



This 3,600-year-old manuscript could change history

This manuscript book called Kolbrin, speaks of the long forgotten or unknown events of the past, even before our written history.

The Kolbrin Bible, also known as the Bronzebook or Coelbook, is the first Judeo-Christian document that combines the events currently described in the Bible, and also warns of the impending cataclysms that are to come.

It speaks of unknown episodes of the ancient past of mankind that have been deliberately hidden by the current Christian textbooks.

It is the only document of its kind that still exists, and tells the whole story of human genesis, from the first people who stepped on Earth before the arrival of Adam and Eve, to the great Egyptian rulers.

According to this ancient text, the term “fallen angel” mentioned in Genesis refers to mortal men who married the daughters of Adam and Eve and had children, rather than the common belief of angelic or “divine” beings.

It is also mentioned that these men descend from a highly advanced earthly society that survived the first cataclysms by hiding in underground shelters.

They were known as “The Children of God” and the aforementioned catastrophe was the result of their actions. Some researchers even link this story to that of Atlantis and Lemuria, the legendary civilizations believed to be over after an impending cataclysm.

Composed of eleven books, the Kolbrin Bible offers extensive knowledge of our past, comprising of five books written by the Celtic mystics after the death of Jesus Christ and also six books that are composed of ancient Egyptian scrolls written by scribes after the events that followed the Hebrew exodus from Egypt.

It is believed that Joseph of Arimathea, Jesus’ great uncle, succeeded in rescuing the Egyptian scrolls of the conqueror Julius Caesar who invaded Egypt and set fire to the largest library in the world at that time, The Alexandria Library. The destruction of more than 700,000 rolls with an incalculable value in this place was collected over the years.

According to Crystalinks, The Kolbrin is a collection of ancient manuscripts said to have been salvaged from the Glastonbury Abbey arson in 1184. The Kolbrin said to have a connection with Jesus historically through Joseph of Arimathea, they have been discussed online by James McCanney, Alex Merklinger and others.

It has been rumored that Nicola Tesla acquired some knowledge from this book according to James McCanney. In the past, only a select few, some might say an elite group, have had access to this book. Now, the current caretakers of this ancient knowledge believe ‘these are the days of decision when humankind stands at the crossroad,’ and are making the book available subject to explicit conditions.

The dogmas that date from before the known written history would have been consumed that day, but fortunately, there are some people who retain a small portion of that forbidden knowledge.

Joseph and the followers of Jesus later moved the Judean scrolls to Britain in a desperate attempt to preserve their context.

The manuscripts are kept secret inside Glastonbury Abbey, in Somerset County, in the southwest of Great Britain, where they have been for many hundreds of years.

However, a relentless fire enveloped the abbey in 1184, but the scrolls were saved from this other desperate “attempt” to hide the true history of mankind.

Some of the manuscripts were carved in the form of thin bronze sheets and deposited in copper-clad containers, which also helped them resist any fire or attack.

The book also contains some unique prophecies. One of them even describes how the flood caused by the arrival of the supposed Planet X, linking the two events in a scenario never seen before.

Then, with the dawning, men saw an awesome sight. There, riding on a black rolling cloud came the Destroyer, newly released from the confines of the sky vaults, and she raged about the heavens, for it was her day of judgement.

The beast opened its mouth and belched forth fire and hot stones and a vile smoke. It covered the whole sky above and the meeting place of Earth and Heaven could no longer be seen. In the evening, the places of the stars were changed, they rolled across the sky to new stations, then the floodwaters came.

The floodgates of heaven were opened and the foundations of Earth were broken apart. The surrounding waters poured over the land and broke upon the mountains. The storehouses of the winds burst their bolts asunder, so storms and whirlwinds were loosed to hurl themselves upon Earth.

In the seething waters and howling gales, all buildings were destroyed, trees were uprooted and mountains cast down. There was a time of great heat, then came a bitter cold. The waves over the waters did not rise and fall but seethed and swirled, there was an awful sound above.

Could this mysterious compilation of forbidden knowledge rewrite the history of mankind as we know it?

Attempts to erase this evidence throughout history have been very clear, which demonstrates the great value and truth that is contained in those manuscripts.

Who and why he removed 10 pages from the Devil’s Bible?

One of the largest medieval manuscripts is the so-called Codex Gigas, also known as the Devil’s Bible, because it has a large image of the Devil on one of the pages .

The weight of the book is 75 kg, its width is 49 cm and its height is 89 cm. It is estimated that it would take at least 30 years for one person to write and draw the whole book.

According to legend, however, it took only one night to do so for an unknown monk living in the 13th century AD. The same monk was imprisoned in a cell for violation of discipline and vows, and a much more severe punishment awaited him. In an attempt to avoid punishment, the monk decided to surprise the superiors with a book that described ” all the knowledge of the earth .”

To write this book, the monk turned to the Devil himself for help. In exchange for his soul, the Devil created the Codex Gigas overnight.

Initially, the Devil’s Bible was stored in the monastery in Podlazice, in the territory of modern-day Czech Republic, near the town of Chrudim. After a while it was moved to the monastery in Brumov. In 1648, it was stolen by Swedish soldiers and taken to Sweden as a prey. In 1649 the manuscript was placed in the Royal Library of Stockholm, where it is still preserved.

There are 310 pages in the Devil’s Bible, but there were 320 pages before. So, 10 pages were taken and what was written in them is still unknown to anyone.

It is officially believed that the statutes of the Benedictine monastery are written on these 10 pages, but many conspiracy theorists are sure that no one would extract the written rules of the monastery from such a huge and valuable book, and that the missing pages clearly contain much more important information.

For example, the prophecies about the Apocalypse. Or, the so-called “devil’s prayer”, the reading of which, under certain conditions, is described on the vanished pages to summon the Devil. At the same time, the sheets did not just fall out of the bound book because of old age and decay. They have been deliberately removed. They were cut off from the Codex and this is evident from the cropping of these pages.

None of the historians knows when and by whom these pages were removed. In the 16th century, one of the mystics of the Paracelsus Circle became interested in the Code, and in 1590, his student visited the Brumov Monastery to study it.

The Code also attracts the attention of the Holy Roman Emperor – Rudolf II, who sought occult information in it. He even ordered the Codex to be transported to his Prague Castle. Then the legend of the Devil’s Bible began to spread. Most probably, it was Rudolf II who tore these pages, finding in them the occult records he needed.

Another oddity of Codex Gigas is that no one has even tried to rewrite this book. In those centuries, when printing was not yet invented, important manuscripts were constantly rewritten to reproduce.

Moreover, even more voluminous and complex texts have been rewritten than the Devil’s Bible.

Black Cats and Witches

In some areas where people live, black cats that are completely black in fur, are a rarity, and this factor adds to their mysterious trait. Also, in the night, a black cat can be practically invisible, so people in the darkness see just the two eyes of the cat, which can be a pale shade of green, orange, or yellow or be amber colored.

Many superstitious people were terrified, thinking an invisible creature or demon with 2 eyes or simply 2 floating, glowing eyes were staring at them in the dark. Black cats were the traditional and most common creatures that lived with witches even though witches had other animals around them, at times, as rats, dogs, ferrets, birds, frogs, toads, and hares. These small animals were often kept in pots or baskets lined with sheep’s wool and fed various things including milk, bread, meat, and blood. Often, such animals would have the same affectionate nick names or common names that parents give their children.

When a person, for example, an old lady, especially a person who lives alone, has, for example, a pet black cat; there are people who strangely talk to their pets as though they are human beings and can understand every word. Centuries ago, when belief in witchcraft was very strong, many people that saw and heard a person talking to an animal seriously wondered if the animal was a spirit or demon in animal form that attends and obeys its master- a witch. The occult name for such an animal is called a familiar. There are other reasons that can make people further wonder if a person is a witch; as that person being unnaturally mean; highly aggressive; hateful in personality, and if such a person were also very ugly, it would add to their resentment by others.

The American author, Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849) wrote a short horror fiction story called “The  Black Cat” that would reinforce the idea of a black cat having supernatural powers. In that story, a black cat gets its revenge against its owner who has abused it, then horribly mutilates it, and later kills it.Once, in the 1970’s, there was an occult supplier who sold, among many other things, tall candles in the shape and color of a black cat. The sales pitch was that the black cat, being a symbol of bad luck, when burned in candle form would destroy that black cat image and this became a ritual for good luck.For many, many years, black cats have gotten a bad rap; a really unfair, undeserved reputation of being evil and harmful to humans. Some people, over the years, tried to undo; reverse this situation by claiming that black cats are actually good luck. In certain parts of Europe, for instance, black cats are looked upon as actually bringing good luck.

Some folks, centuries ago, thought that at times a witch’s familiar or familiars was a person or people that , from the power of witchcraft, got turned into an animal or animals as punishment for somehow angering a witch.Black cats began to develop an association with evil in the minds of various people, centuries ago, from the extreme worry that any black cat there was could be a demon in disguise. Many people developed a great fear, distrust, and revulsion to all black cats and would chase them away, at times even throwing small objects as stones at the animals.Various people began to believe that the black cat, from its demonic significance, brought bad luck, especially if a black cat crosses your path.
