I have never heard of "The Light" before, It's crazy to think that cults like this are operating so close to society. I find this particular organization very odd. Claiming they are from Atlanis and memebers of the "Aryan Race"... It makes me wonder how prestigious some of it's memebers truly are.


It’s a secret society that claims its followers descended from a “master Aryan race” on Atlantis and that ­humans once lived on the moon.

Homosexuality is banned, corporal punishment encouraged and members atone for bad karma in past lives. Young women, denied higher education, are often married off to older men in the group, former members say.

Some male devotees have ­undergone weapons training to prepare for the end of the world, which is coming soon.
But this doomsday cult isn’t hidden away in some rural ­bunker — it operates out of a brownstone in Murray Hill.

They are even training for the apocalypse, according to former member Paul Arthur Miller



Paul Arthur Miller was 18 when he found himself among a dozen young men in a secluded nook of the Adirondack Mountains. He had received instructions on what to pack for the three-day trip reserved only for elite members of the “Light Patrol.” The troop was led by two ­believers, ex-Army paratroopers who taught the youngsters how to track footprints, the basics of camping and other survival skills.

He didn’t realize the training would include firing M14 automatic rifles into an abandoned junk heap or training in hand-to-hand combat in preparation for the apocalypse.

“The belief is that Planet Earth will be ending soon and we would have to defend our people and safeguard our food and supplies,” recalled Miller, now a ­58-year-old West Village writer.


I don't know, but these guys seem pretty fanatic to me. Anyone heard anything else about this group?

If it has anything do with masonry prepare for Augustis to see you through. Hes all over the masonic threads but from what i read, your not describing masonry but a cult similar to that of the black sun or the vrill society.

It really is strange the types of beliefs that people fall into. Never have heard of "The Light" before but I did find a blog that's been running since 2007 on the subject, purportedly written by someone who had parted ways with them: congregationforthelight.blogspot.com...

It's an interesting read. The author of that blog writes that the owl, which is mentioned as being a symbolism to be found in every Light members home, represents "because you are watched from all sides and even at night". Putting the owls throughout one's home, with this kind of thinking in mind, rather would create a psychological panopticon effect.

Wonder how the "congregation" is feeling about being exposed to "the light" of day...lol, couldn't help myself there.

They remind me a lot of the Vrills, that's one of the reasons they worry me. Because who were the Vrills attached to? Yeah... creepy.

Why do these religious nut jobs always believe the end is nigh? Even if the fall of Man were to occur why do these people believe they will be spared to protect whats left?

Simple fact is humanity in its present form has been around for sometime now. We are rather hard to eradicate and will most lightly remain the dominant species on this rock until we decide or are allowed to depart for greener pastures.

It really does seem like they are using the owls as a sort of panopticon. You are being watched, even when you think you aren't. Classic mind control.

I don't necessarily discount the idea that humans have been around for A LOT longer than we think we have. In fact, OOPARTs seem to point directly to this possibility. I agree, however, I think it will take a whole lot to get us off this rock for good and all.

My friends,

We must remember that long, long long before our time the moon could well have had cohabitants.

We must remember before our time that there where many races of humans on this earth, they could have well been the Aryan Race

We must remember that what we think or believe on this spiritual plane, there was an alternative time before us.

It would therefore be ignorant to believe there may not have been.

Yep. Some of their other symbols kind of stirred a few things in my noggin. A lot of archetype use, I think, and that makes sense considering that they're pulling from beliefs/thoughts from the 19th century. You had a basic renaissance of mythology in that time period. It was fashionable to have some ancient root in one's beliefs (think Crowley and his lot playing dress up). The irony of saying that, of course, is that even in more ancient times, subscribing to old beliefs was frequently fashionable such as the Isis cult of ancient Rome, lol.

Some things never change, eh?

The Vril are currently teamed up with the Deutsche Hüterorden who relate to the German Socialist Justice League...Neo-Illuminati of the traditional variety.




Their videos are quite entertaining...

Never heard of these crazies before, their beliefs are pretty interesting to say the least. Wonder how the "the light" makes it's members atone for mistakes made in their past lives...

Not much about them online.

lol, it really trips me out man. The owl is a symbol used heavily in several occult traditions. I really want to know what types of high profile elite are members of this group, if any (which I assume there are). They seem relatively similar to other societies like them. Its creepy.

Well if I understand (which I don't, really) things like cancer and other diseases are the way that bad karma is atoned for. Weird people here.

Well this was chose for my family hundreds of years ago and I'm neither evil, occulty, elitist, cultist or a member of any secret society(unless it's that secret that even I don't know) evil or otherwise.

Well, occult doesn't mean evil, what I mean is that I believe that this group is up to a whole lot more than what they are fessing up to and that I believe that their membership is likely more exclusive and elite then they admit to. I wonder which people in positions of power are actually members of this group or others like it. And, again, I should clarify, I don't necessarily think that The Light are evil, but rather that I simply do not trust secret societies as why else would one act in secret if not for nefarious purposes or to further an agenda.

I would tell you a joke about Jonestown.
The punchline is too long.
