Should we go to war because the newspapers and most commentators agree that it is “highly likely” Russia ordered the assassination of Mr. Skripal, a Russian expat and British citizen and his daughter Guilia, on UK soil?
Our Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, with his usual temperance of speech, suggests that it is “overwhelmingly likely” Putin personally ordered the attack. But while politicians are high on assumptions they are really low on evidence.
And the media are giving them a free ride.
Are we indeed going "over the top"?
Earlier in the week, the Guardian had a cartoon showing Putin as a blood drenched spider sitting on top of the world, with Theresa May flying up on a vacuum cleaner, to sweep him away (recalling both Nazi propaganda and a child’s nursery rhyme).
The last time this writer can remember such a frenzy of moral sureness, was when the UK were gearing up for an invasion of Iraq over the “overwhelming certainty” of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. At that time some of us doubted the narrative but our voices were easily drowned out by Tony Blair’s 45 minute threat and Intelligence Dossiers.
A little bit of history
Of course the newspapers quickly established that this theory had little to sustain it, and CNN, in a notable broadcast from the streets of Caracas, spoke of "fantasy so fantastical it is hard to believe a government would give it the least credence".
America, they said, had not and would never engage in a crime like this.
Do you remember this?
Well, not surprising, because it never happened. But the main elements are similar to the attempted assassination of two people in Salisbury, England, And here, we are accepting the official line without any serious questioning at all.
As we will see below, there are serious questions as to whether Novichok was ever made by the USSR.
There are perplexing questions regarding how such an unstable and dangerous compound could be transported and administered.
There are important questions regarding the assertion that only the Russian State could produce a nerve agent such as this.
There is little or no mention in the media of the decommissioning of the alleged source of this agent, in the 1990's by an American team.
Why is no-one in the main stream British media doing due diligence and asking the questions being posed by well informed journalists in the alternative media?
There are good reasons to doubt Mrs May’s conclusions, but no one chooses to air them.
So we goad a nuclear power, who may (or may not) be guilty. But we simply disregard the law (international and UK) in doing so.
This writer is not asserting that Russia is not responsible but is pointing out that the media are totally failing in their duty to inform. By so doing they become complicit in whatever may flow from this, especially if Russia are entirely innocent.
(And under law they are indeed innocent until proven guilty.)
Did you know, for example, that Russia had requested a sample of the ‘Novichok’ nerve agent, right at the beginning, but has had no response from the Foreign Office, even though this would be protocol for such events?
Did you know, for example, that the so called Novichok agent was described first by a whistleblower, Vil S. Mirzayanov? He wrote a book called State Secrets, that appears to give the formulae for the ‘Novichok’ agent. But experts, real experts, question if his book is simply a work of fiction.
Judith Miller, in a New York Times article in 1999, writes:
“Earlier this year, the Pentagon informed Congress that it intends to spend up to $6 million under its Cooperative Threat Reduction program to demilitarize the so-called Chemical Research Institute, in Nukus, Uzbekistan. Soviet defectors and American officials say the Nukus plant was the major research and testing site for a new class of secret, highly lethal chemical weapons called ''Novichok,'' which in Russian means ‘new guy’.”
In other words it was a US company that had the task of cleaning up the mess left by the USSR. If Novichok was made there, they would have had access, and samples, Her full article can be accessed, here.
She also pointed out that the Hague-based agency, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, doubted the Uzbek site and been used for chemical production.
Porton Down doubts Novichok Exists
Did you know that Craig Murray, the ex British Ambassador to Uzbekistan (2002-2004) has written on March 14th 2018, that:
“As recently as 2016 Dr Robin Black, Head of the Detection Laboratory at the UK’s only chemical weapons facility at Porton Down, a former colleague of Dr David Kelly, published in an extremely prestigious scientific journal that the evidence for the existence of Novichoks was scant and their composition unknown.”
You may wish to read that quote again.
Because as the drums of outrage boom, and we edge, perhaps, closer to a terminal crisis, we may be arguing about something that simply does not exist.
The full article by Craig Murray can be found here, with quotes in full from Dr. Robin Black’s publication.
Dr Robin Black, is the Head of the Detection Laboratory at Porton Down, or was two years ago, and he doubts the existence of Novichok. But Theresa May and Boris Johnson are sure.
How come no-one in the western main stream media is following this up with some level of incredulity?
Finally, anyone who has followed BBC dramas will understand the concept of ‘wet work’.
Is anyone who has read this far, so naive, that they do not know that states in the West seek to murder elected leaders of foreign powers? The failures with Fidel Castro, all 600+ of them, are explored here. More worrying, is Operation Gladio, the ‘stay behind armies of NATO', who were behind the Bologna bombings in 1980.
Daniele Ganser, in his book NATO’s Secret Armies (2004) describes how CIA funded military had arms caches all over Europe. The most clear example is Italy, but Ganser opines that the system operated (and perhaps still does) across Europe.
The secret Gladio army, as Andreotti revealed, was well armed. The equipment provided by the CIA was buried in 139 hiding spots across the country in forests, meadows and even under churches and cemeteries. According to the explanations of Andreotti the Gladio caches included 'portable arms, ammunition, explosives, hand grenades, knives and daggers, 60 mm mortars, several 57 mm recoilless rifles, sniper rifles, radio transmitters, binoculars and various tools'.
Andreotti's sensational testimony did not only lead to an outcry concerning the corruption of the government and the CIA among the press and the population, but also to a hunt for the secret arms caches. Padre Giuciano recalls the day when the press came to search for the hidden Gladio secrets in his church with ambiguous feelings: 'I was forewarned in the afternoon when two journalists from "Il Gazzettino" asked me if I knew anything about arms deposits here at the church. They started to dig right here and found two boxes right away. Then the text also said a thirty centimetres from the window. So they came over here and dug down. One box was kept aside by them because it contained a phosphorous bomb. They sent the Carabinieri outside whilst two experts opened this box, another had two machine guns in it. All the guns were new, in perfect shape. They had never been used.’
The greatest outrage was the Bologna bombing in 1980, that many still (falsely) believe was perpetrated by left wing terrorists, when the opposite was true, It was carried out by right wing functionaries of the State. Full background to Gladio can be found here in a BBC documentary, and here and here.
So what is the relevance of Operation Gladio to attacks on Russian citizens (past and present) on the streets of Salisbury? Few people in the West are familiar with Gladio and Gladio B, but this is no conspiracy theory. It is established as factual that quasi government bodies attacked their own citizens on European soil for certain geopolitical ends.
Did this happen in Salisbury, two weeks ago? The current writer does not know - but then neither does anyone (outside of Intelligence circles) know either. It is the evident fact that this is not even being considered in the UK media, that should be a profound worry.
Would fail as a scenario in McMafia?
The relevance of this is that if state operatives wish to murder they do. This includes NATO states. And this has demonstrably involved citizens of NATO countries as victims.
Probably all states have departments that do work like this, including Russia. Only, normally, we never know for sure. Good wet work teams have cut outs that make it hard to trace who gives the orders (it took many years to find the real perpetrators of the Bologna bombing).
We are being led to believe:
1. That Putin personally ordered a hit an a low level double agent who had received a full pardon from Russia
2. That the method used was so inept, it involved a nerve agent only “made in Russia”.
3. That the method used put innocent bystanders at risk (including a policeman).
4. That an attempt was made "by Putin or his cronies" to murder a Russian citizen who frequently is in Moscow (Guilia, the daughter of Skripal, lives there). Such an act would be against Russian law, and certainly repellent to most Russian citizens.
Well, maybe all this is true, and certainly it seems accepted as such by most, except maybe Jeremy Corbyn, who is counselling caution.
But if this scenario was suggested in a drama pitched to the BBC as part of McMafia, it would be thrown out as completely implausible for failing the simple test of Cui Bono.
Conquest through debt
Countries that get themselves into financial difficulties have only themselves to blame, don't they? Perhaps not. When a country is targeted by economic hit men (and women) do they really stand a chance?
Those who live in Greece know the ease with which people who have been comprehensively cheated will blame themselves. Although John Perkins, as far as this writer is aware, never gulled Greece, he was involved in the enticing of whole governments into debt they could never hope to repay.
After 9/11 Perkins allowed his conscience to get the better of his him and gave up his lifestyle of glamorous women and huge expenses. Instead he told his story.
For those who do not have the time or inclination to read the original, below is an excellent review by David Korten, an author who knows the world of high finance all too well.
(This review was presented in the excellent site Wanttoknow.info.)
How the Richest of the Rich Steal from the Poorest of the Poor
[The} Comte de St.-Germain, over whose Masonic activities to this day hangs the veil of impenetrable mystery. The exalted body of initiates whom he represented, as well as the mission he came to accomplish, have both been concealed from the members of the Craft at large and are apparent only to those few discerning Masons who sense the supernal philosophic destiny of their Fraternity.
Manly P Hall
Stories suggest that his understanding of the more hidden qualities of nature meant he could do what appeared magical to those who saw it. He became the darling of the great aristocratic houses of England, France and beyond, but gradually his reluctance to astound people with tricks and phenomena, meant some turned on him and denounced him as a fraud.
He was moving through Europe rife with intrigue, and the seeds of the French Revolution were being scattered far and wide at this time. He was perceived as a threat to both State and Church, and so it is no wonder he made enemies.
But he made friends too, as the quote below suggests.
Cagliostro—the idol of France, surnamed "the Father of the Poor," who never received anything from anyone and gave everything to everyone ...
Mystics, philosophers, and alchemists were all bound together with a secret tie and dedicated to the emancipation of humanity from ignorance and oppression.
Cagliostro, the Great Master Cagliostro, had nothing to do with the character described by Alejandro Dumas in his work, The Life of Giuseppe Balsamo, nor with the character invented by the Inquisition to discredit the Rosicrucian Grand Master.
Some of the Eastern meaning of mudras are given here.
Then, however, he was successful in Lyons, forming an occult masonic lodge of the Philalethes [Searchers after Truth] out of a group of local masons, which was called the Lodge of Triumphing Wisdom. The purpose of this Lodge was specified by Cagliostro. What you can read about it is, however, nothing but the work of ignorant people. What can be said about it is only an indication. Cagliostro was concerned with two things: firstly, with instructions enabling one to produce the so-called Philosopher's Stone; secondly, with creating an understanding of the mystic pentagram. I can only give you a hint of the meaning of these two things. They may be treated with a deal of scorn, but they are not to be taken merely symbolically, they are based on real facts.
"I am not of any time or of any place; beyond time and space my spiritual being lives an eternal existence. I turn my thoughts back over the ages and I project my spirit toward an existence far beyond that which you perceive, I become what I choose to be.
Participating consciously in the Absolute Being, I arrange my actions according to what is at hand. My name defines my actions because I am free. My country is wherever my feet stand at the moment.
Put yesterday behind you if you dare, like the forgotten ancestors who came before you, give no thought to the morrow and the illusionary hope of greatness that will never be yours, I will be what I am."
Sources I trust suggest this story is a calumny. An equivalent would be to look at current US government statements on Edward Snowden. These describe him as a traitor. Indeed some ask for the death penalty for him. But it is clear there are many millions who disagree with that view.
Both Rudolf Steiner and Manly P Hall saw Cagliostro as a man of exceptional gifts, and a recent commentator has posted here (in January 2017) that he had an important part to play in keeping the Mysteries of Isis safe for posterity. For that alone we should be deeply grateful.
Born into this constricting and conservative society was Juana Ines, the illegitimate daughter of a concubine.
Self taught and utterly brilliant, she has been called "the Tenth Muse". She had learned Latin by the age of three and later taught other children. Abandoned by her uncle she made her way to Court where her brilliance captured the attention of the Viceroy and his frustrated wife. She impressed the clergy at Court sufficiently to become tutor to the Viceroy's daughter.
Unable to marry even though a most attractive young woman, she joined the Carmelites. Their strict and punitive regime nearly broke her spirit. and through the intervention of the Vicereine, she moved to join the more receptive milieu of the Hieronymite nuns, where she was able both to study and to write.
At least this is the version of the tale presented in the recent Mexican TV Series.
Her writing was recognised in her own time as brilliant, and her thinking was a challenge to some of the more narrow prescriptions of the Church.
The first great New World poet
In Spain and Spanish America, Sor Juana is an acknowledged classic of 17th-century letters. Her works stand at a point of historical privilege; she was the first great New World poet, the last of Spain's Golden Age, and she is part of an international, not just a Mexican, cultural tradition.
"One can perfectly well philosophize while cooking supper,"
Netflix are currently running this series Juana Inés with excellent subtitles.
It is highly recommended to those who like their history with a touch of melodrama!
Here are the opening verses of one of her more famous poems.
You foolish men
who lay the guilt on women,
not seeing you’re the cause
of the very thing you blame;
if you invite their disdain
with measureless desire
why wish they well behave
if you incite to ill.

Evidence of the age of civilisation is often measured in terms of objects (artefacts) But what if the artefacts were to suggest civilisation far pre-dating our accepted idea of the Earth's history?
So they are simply dismissed.
Here is how Rational Wiki does it:
An out-of-place artifact ... is a name given by creationists and woo-pushing fringe scientists for historical and archeological artifacts they feel could not have been created by a particular culture due to a lack of knowledge or materials
John Markoff, in the New York times has this to say of the astronomical instrument found off the coast of Crete, over 100 years ago:
Who made the famed Antikythera Mechanism, the astronomical calculator that was raised from an ancient shipwreck near Crete in 1901?
The complex clocklike assembly of bronze gears and display dials predates other known examples of similar technology by more than 1,000 years. It accurately predicted lunar and solar eclipses, as well as solar, lunar and planetary positions.
For good measure, the mechanism also tracked the dates of the Olympic Games. Although it was not programmable in the modern sense, some have called it the first analog computer.
There are a number of problems with this find. It shows a remarkable understanding of astronomy, not matched until the 20th Century. It also shows very sophisticated gearing and metallurgy, that is hard to explain in the era it came from.
A small human image, skilfully moulded in clay, was found in 1889 at Nampa, Idaho. The figurine came from the 300-foot level of a well boring and dated to be of the Plio-Pleistocene age,
If that accurately dates it, then it is 2,000,000 years old.
Human beings have been on the Earth (we are told) for no longer than 200,000 years.
At the time, G. F. Wright noted,
"The image is about an inch and a half long; and remarkable for the perfection with which it represents the human form...
"Upon showing the object to Professor F. W. Putnam," wrote Wright, "he at once directed attention to the character of the incrustations of iron upon the surface as indicative of a relic of considerable antiquity. There were patches of anhydrous red oxide of iron in protected places upon it, such as could not have been formed upon any fraudulent object."
Remarkable spheres of metal were found near Ottosdal, in a mine in South Africa. As the coal could be accurately aged, the time the spheres arrived in their current location could be estimated.
They turned out to be 2.8 billion years old.
There has been great controversy over whether such perfect formed objects, with grooves, could have occurred naturally or have been produced by intelligences unknown.
Various theories about their natural production have been put forward, although all are highly speculative and certainly unproven.
However, the suggestion that they have a level of perfection that suggests intelligent manufacture, has been met with derision.
We will cover breaking news on that, as and when (and if) it occurs.
As a geologist, his viewpoint should be taken seriously, as it turns all our assumptions about the origins of civilisation on their head. As we saw hinted in Carmen Boulter's work (see here) we may have to make a lot of changes in how we see the history of the world now!
His work is summarised in his current series on Gaia.com. It can be found here.
The gold figurines shown above, and a sarcophagus, remarkably like that of the one used for Tutankhamen, have been found in an undisclosed location in Turkey. Boulter took the photo above on her cell phone, but military trouble meant she had to leave the site before taking higher quality pictures.
Sadly, the answer undoubtedly is "yes".
Are people being brain washed in the West?
Sadly, the answer also is "yes".
In April 2010, an American professor of Psychology, Professor Hammond, spoke out on this topic to his colleagues. in a lecture entitled "Hypnosis in MPD: Ritual Abuse".
The full transcript of this lecture is available.
He has never spoken in public on this topic again.
University of Utah School of Medicine
His full credentials are given here:
Some key points from his 2010 talk
I came out of that with a grasp of a variety of brainwashing methods being used all over the country. I started to hear some similarities. Whereas to begin with, I hadn't known how widespread things were, I was now getting a feeling that there were a lot of people reporting some similar things, and that there must be some degree of communication to cause this.
* * *
Here's where the ritual abuse appears to have come from. Near the end of World War II, Allen Dulles [later to become Director of the CIA] and other people from our intelligence community were in Switzerland making contact to get out Nazi scientists. As World War II ended, they not only got out rocket scientists, but they also got out some Nazi doctors who had been doing mind control research in the concentration camps. They secretly brought them to the United States [through Project Paperclip].
* * *
The way you create Manchurian Candidates is you divide the mind. It's part of what the intelligence community wanted. If you're going to get an assassin, you divide the mind. Cases like the assassination of Robert Kennedy fascinate me. Bernard Diamond, on examining Sirhan Sirhan, found that he had total amnesia of the killing of Robert Kennedy. Yet under hypnosis he could remember it. But after he was out of hypnosis, he could not remember a thing, despite suggestions he would be able to consciously remember.
This is how Hammond ended his 2010 presentation:
Have you noticed that certain ideas are allowed and certain ideas put you outside of what is taken as 'common sense'? Those who are the guardians of the Common Sense perspective will often quote science and scientists, as though there is one scientific view and it is always correct. They will direct the unwary to sites devoted to self-proclaimed rationality to 'debunk' any ideas that do not form part of the acceptable reality.
This war is every bit as real as the great battles, real and philosophical, between the Catholic church and the Reformed church. The stakes are just as high (only now we do not burn people at them - but we can completely burn reputations).
Not long ago, two remarkable thinkers were invited to share their ideas on TED. This site, Ted.com invites people at the top of their game, to share their ideas on the arts, science, psychology and so forth. They do so in around 15 to 20 minutes; many of these presentations are electric and some have been seen by millions.
The idea behind TED was excellent. And then the thought police arrived.
One example he used was Blue Tits learning to peck through the foil tops of milk bottles (back in the day when milk was delivered in bottles on the doorstep). He pointed out that for years no bird had ever pecked through to the cream at the top of the milk. Then one did. And then the phenomenon spread, rapidly, and was occurring over a wide geographical area. He suggested that what one bird had learned, passed – through morphic resonance - to the others of that species.
This idea threatened his tenure at Cambridge, and in the end he left, but published his views in books that have been very widely read, but never accepted through main-stream science.
The reason his ideas have not been acceptable is because they suggest a non-local consciousness and parapsychological aspect to reality that is anathema to the acceptable consensus view of the world, monitored by the thought police.
His TED talk - removed at the request of fellow scientists - can be found below, and is well worth watching. Paradoxically, it has now been viewed on this one You Tube posting, by over one million people.
As it happens, the current writer disagrees with Hancock's take on spirituality and the 'reality' discovered through hallucinogens, but his views should be heard.
He, like Sheldrake, was banned from TED because he challenged powerful interest groups as well as the very active thought police in the scientific community. His talk has also been seen now by well over one million people.
We will look at known great masters, divine teachers, masters contacted telepathically and how (and when) masters may arise.
Both master and hero?
The great souls that undoubtedly walked the sands and temples of Egypt, are shrouded in mystery and the stories always have mythic elements. Akhenaton is one of these, and the great (female) Pharaoh Hatshepsut is another. When we progress to ancient Greece, then we begin to move into greater historical certainty. The individual Orpheus, hovers between myth and history. He may rightly be called a master, as his hymns, teachings and life story were highly influential on Hellenic thought and beyond.
"HERMES, draw near, and to my pray'r incline,
Angel of Jove, and Maia's son divine;
Studious of contests, ruler of mankind,
With heart almighty, and a prudent mind."
We know little of the accurate history of Pythagoras, and the current writer, who knew members of the European Pythagorian movement, learned that the name may refer to one or several individuals. That said, the official history teaches of a savant who studied with the priests of Egypt. and brought those teachings to the Greek speaking community in the Mediterranean.
His appreciation of number and harmony, influenced those Hellenic thinkers who followed him.
Pay honour first to the immortal Gods,
As order hath established Their Choirs;
Reverence the Oath. The Heroes, Great and Good
Revere thou next, and Earth's good geniuses,
Paying them such honours as are due.
Lao Tse founded Taoism. A contemporary of the Buddha and Pythagoras, his teachings, summarised in the Tao Te Ching have had a huge impact on Eastern thought and still resonate with those who come across it today.
The simplicity of his teachings match their profundity. His name means 'Young-Old'.
"Without leaving his threshold a man may see the universe,
Without looking through his window a man may see the Tao of Heaven."
"The Tao that can be expressed in words is not the All-embracing and Immutable Tao; the name which can be uttered is not the Ever-applicable Name."
Thomas Taylor, the great 18th Century Platonist, referred to 'The Divine Master Plato'. More recently Plato has been called the father of Philosophy and all that has followed being merely footnotes to his thought.
The rediscovery of Platonic thought had an enormous impact on the Renaissance, and even today thinkers can be seen as essentially Aristotelian or Platonic in their approaches.
Plato is misunderstood if his ideas are reduced to politics and psychology. His ability to 'see' into the spiritual realities above, and his enormous influence on human thought, means he richly deserves the term 'Master'.
Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind
Each major religion is founded by an individual.
It is inevitable, that their lives will be remembered largely in terms of myths and stories, with each element having symbolic significance. But in each case a flesh and blood human being first received the revelation that provided the seed of the religion that flowed from their life and teachings.
Beyond the Manifested there is another, Unmanifested and Eternal,
lasting ever amid unlasting things
When the agitations of the mind are under control,
the mind becomes like a transparent crystal and has the power of becoming whatever form is presented. knower, act of knowing, or what is known.
The Arrival of Theosophy
The Problem with the Masters
With many of these masters, there have been a multitude who claim to have channelled their words, so a huge amount of discernment has to be exercised to differentiate between what might be the teachings of a great mind (received by one attuned to that mind) and the deliberate disinformation arising from either a discarnate being with mischievous intent, or the rearrangement of commonplace truths within the subconscious of the one channelling.
But knowing that certain writing is truly the work of a great mind, or indeed revelation, requires a certain element of trust. This applies in all cases. If we take, for example, The Beatitudes:
Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy. ...
In the end, we have to judge the words according to their own merits and the beauty, truth and goodness of the ideas they convey. Although religions will claim the words of their scriptures have been protected by Divine Fiat, a glance at the different Bibles of Catholicism, Orthodoxy and the many sects of Protestant Christianity in America, will show that a bewildering number of versions of "God's Word" exist, each with subtle (and unsubtle) differences.
So the teachings of the known great teachers of mankind rest partly on the teachers being real and not fictitious, but more so on the wisdom of the teachings themselves. The persistence of teachings over great periods of time, when they have been the object of study and inspiration to generations of fine minds, is another indication that the ideas are worth careful reflection.
So what is a Master?
We need to address first the lack of women amongst the Masters mentioned above. There may be many reasons for this, and we should bear in mind that the Soul of each of us is both male and female. The expression of a teaching through a male body may reflect requirements both esoteric and exoteric, cultural and social. In the case of many Masters, there is often a woman who is absolutely crucial in the development and life of the individual.
Pythagoras was the son of Pythia, a priestess and his earliest teacher. Plato's mother, Perictione, is considered to have been of utmost importance in his intellectual development, as was the mysterious philosopher, Diotima for Socrates. With Jesus his mother Mary (almost certainly an Essene and trained in their wisdom) and – more controversially - Mary Magdelene (who some suggest was a priestess of Isis and whose true import has been deliberately distorted) were crucial to his fulfilling his destiny. Similarly, Krishna has Radha as his lover.
Sri Aurobindo, a Master within living memory, could not have done his work without 'The Mother' a French woman of remarkable abilities.
So although the teachings may be associated with a given man, the conception, reception and dissemination of those teachings required specific women (for example Blavatsky and Bailey).
They need teachers who are wise and steeped in a tradition. They need to be part of a tradition that can receive their insights and wisdom. Some, it is said, are God taught (without a teacher). This title was given to Ammonius Saccas of Alexandria. But even they need a tradition receptive to their revelation.
They have to have the right body (genetic constituency). This is one reason that the idea of blood-lines is emphasised with certain of the great teachers. Their ancestry is important.
We may assume that they are remarkable Souls. This does not require a belief (or indeed necessity) for reincarnation. But it is clear that the individuals listed at the beginning of this post were in no way 'run of the mill' and that they brought some extraordinary capacity with them at birth. Often their births appear to have miraculous elements. In today's parlance we would say they are 'old souls'.
We may suggest that in some way they can access the Higher Mind and the collective higher minds of the tradition to which they belong. In this way they are in tune with their times and their teachings have a huge impact at that time to those who can 'hear' what is being said to them.
All, without exception, have many moments when they are inspired, The Divine Spirit, raises their thinking and actions to a higher level of significance. They see further, their ideas fly higher. And with all true Masters, there is also Revelation. They are the conduit of a new Divine Teaching, that is not and cannot be in contradiction to any other Divine Revelation that has gone before.
Their teachings have a beauty and a simplicity and carry the spark of inspiration across millennia.
One of the foremost amongst them was Sir Francis Bacon.
Manly P. Hall, mentioned in the previous post here, puts a strong case that Bacon wrote the Shakespeare plays. It is the view of the current writer that the plays emerged from the research and experience of a number of remarkable people, who had lived on the continent for a time when England was simply too dangerous for them. Bacon would have been associated with that group, as was the Earl of Sussex.
The potentiality held by the lands of the Americas was not lost on these able minds, and Sir Francis Bacon explored this potential in his novel about a Utopia, New Atlantis, A Work Unifinished. Bacon, also known as Lord Verulam, Viscount St Alban, wrote a book that rightly positions him as one of the founding fathers of modern science. He proposed a method in his book Novum Organum (1620), or 'New Method', designed to replace the methods suggested in Aristotle's Organon.
The leap from the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras (1558 through 1625) to the Thirteen Colonies of the pre and post American War of Independence (early 1770s through 1783) is not well understood, even by the most knowledgeable historians. The profound inter-relationship between the many major characters of Queen Elizabeth’s (and King James’s) court and the Founding Fathers of the American Republic has never been drawn or sufficiently acknowledged. Consequently, much of the actual history has been lost, clouded in the mists of time, or purposefully misrepresented by those victors who wrote the history books.
In his Secret Destiny of America, Manly Hall, Bacon's most understanding modern scholar, refers to the appearance in America, prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, of a mysterious Rosicrucian philosopher, a strict vegetarian who ate only foods that grew above the ground, who was a friend and teacher of Franklin and Washington and who seemed to have played an important role in the founding of the new republic. Why most historians failed to mention him is a puzzle, for that he existed is a certainty.
He was known as the "Professor." Together with Franklin and Washington, he was a member of the committee selected by the Continental Congress in 1775 to create a design for the American Flag. The design he made was accepted by the committee and given to Betsy Ross to execute into the first model.
A year later, on July 4, 1776, this mysterious stranger, whose name nobody knew, suddenly appeared in Independence Hall and delivered a stirring address to the fearful men there gathered, who were wondering whether they should risk their lives as traitors by affixing their names to the memorable document which Thomas Jefferson wrote and of whose ideals Francis Bacon, founder of Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, was the true originator.
We may indeed be living at the birth of what America, and the world, was destined to become, namely the New Atlantis.
