It is Manly P Hall’s commentary on the life of the Black Magician which we find to be of interest at this moment since it related a similar kind of
ending that seems to befall all of those who trade with the darker forces at work on earth, “while the black magician at the time of signing his
pact with the elemental demon may be fully convinced that he is strong enough to control indefinitely the powers placed at his disposal, he is
speedily undeceived. Before many years elapse he must turn all his energies to the problem of self-preservation. A world of horrors to which he has
attuned himself by his own covetousness looms nearer every day, until he exists upon the edge of a seething maelstrom, expecting momentarily to be
sucked down into it’s turbid depths. Afraid to die – because he will become the servant of his own demon- the magician commits crime after crime
to prolong his wretched earthly existence. Realising that life is maintained by the aid of a mysterious universal life force, which is common property
of all creatures, the black magician often becomes an occult vampire, stealing this energy from others. According to mediaeval superstition, black
magicians turned themselves into werewolves and roamed the earth at night, attacking defenceless victims for the life force contained in their
It is interesting that Manly P Hall quite clearly attaches the acts of vampirism and blood letting to the desperate final life struggle of the black
magicians. Rarely will you find the two mentioned so clearly and with such authority as you do now.
Napoleon was another historic tyrant whose personal accounts revealed that he was similarly inspired - this time by a ‘little red man or gnome’
that would appear and give him explicit instructions at to his operations in war. Following the advice he indeed managed to conquer and shed a lot of
blood across the European landmass. Let’s not play down his life – slaughter and bloodshed of hundreds of thousands ensued in the wake of his lust
for kingdom and power. It was only until he turned against the advise of his little gnome in pursuit of his own personal agenda, (Josephine – love
not war I’m afraid), that he actually came unstuck and was this time finally defeated and captured. The reign of this angry little man came to an
end almost as soon as he began to ignore the voice of his mysterious counterpart. His reign of terror achieved him little and simply added to the
endless pile of corpses stacked up in the name of personal glory and kingdom. We can clearly see traces of Joan of Arcs story in Napoleons life.
It’s surprising how many incidents like this there are throughout history. Even our modern day hero’s, especially in the realm of music can often
have a surprisingly occult taint to their lives.
Consider The Beatles for example as the most influential counter-cultural episode since World War II. They were apparently part of a cultural trigger
for a global revolution that involved L.S.D, free love, and festival culture.
Most people, especially those who were ‘in the sixties’ view this wave as a coincidental act. However, as we have already outlined the mass
availability of a synthesized drug such as '___' distributed at virtually zero cost in quantities of millions of hits, has never been just
Conspiracy Author John Coleman in his highly controversial ‘Committee of 300’ has this to say on the origins of the sixties counter culture
“When Tavistock brought the Beatles to the United States nobody could have imagined the cultural disaster that was to follow in their wake. The
Beatles were an integral part of "THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY," a living organism which sprang From "THE CHANGING IMAGES OF MAN," URH
(489)-2150-Policy Research Report No. 4/4/74. Policy Report pre-pared by SRI Center for the study of Social Policy, Director, Professor Willis
The Tavistock institute he refers to is the English equivalent, and historic predecessor to the US RAND think tank. RAND of course cleverly came up
with the concept a M.A.D – Mutually Assured destruction which fomented the mass proliferation and stockpiling of Nuclear Weapons which more than
likely would have never worked even if fired, would never be used but cost an awful lost of money and made a lot of people very wealthy and in
Orwellian terms spent an awful lot of human labor that could be best put to use enhancing the lives of humans instead of threatening them.!
In that single M.A.D ‘idea’ alone you can see just what kind of social impact and upheaval these seemingly inert ‘organizations of ideas’ can
impost on our reality. Consider that point carefully before your ‘reason’ censor tries to convince you that the Beatles were just a bunch of
‘lovable lads’ playing jolly music. Their collective story from She Loves you to Strawberry Fields is one fuelled by synthetic drugs, money,
‘idea’ power and the hypnotic fascination of the entire world. The Tavistock Institute was formed after World War I to investigate the effects of
Shell Shock on troops and since then they have managed to carve themselves a rather dubious legacy of human psychological studies which manifest their
effect and influence in the form of ‘establishment endorsed’ white papers which are circulated through governments and corporation ‘direction’
seed groups. These people are literally ‘dreaming up ways and means’ to bring into effect a future of their choosing. And like most background
institutions they are largely invisible, unelected and unsupervised.
It is a fruitless exercise to try establishing whether the Tavistock had any actual part to play in the 60’s counterculture directly since that is
their strength – there is no direct proof – just ‘inspiration’. None of the white papers they distribute can ever be connected one to one to
any actual historical event. They are merely acting as a form of ‘dark intellectual muse’ to heads of state, committees for strategic studies,
international banking institutions, the giant media corporations. Their many white paper proposals are ingested and distilled simply because they
represent a highly viable future where those who utilise the techniques outlined, are able to manipulate future events, predict social patterning and
thus retain power and stay in control, and as an indirect consequence profit and power.
It is as if they recognise something that made the tail wag a little and so they study it and develop techniques and a watertight scientifically
established social application which will ‘wag that tail’ as fast and for as long as they choose.
They merely inspire change and if the change ‘fits’ it will be promoted and backed by the establishment.
As you can see with another paragraph from John Coleman the following scenario played out would hardly be something we should consider beyond the
capabilities of any organisation that would drop an atomic bomb on an entire city, or napalm a village of young children: “The phenomenon of the
Beatles was not a spontaneous rebellion by youth against the old social system. Instead it was a carefully crafted plot to introduce by a
conspiratorial body, which could not be identified, a highly destructive and divisive element into a large population group targeted for change
against its will. New words and new phrases--prepared by Tavistock - were introduced to America along with the Beatles. Words such as "rock" in
relation to music sounds, "teenager," "cool," "discovered" and "pop music" were a lexicon of disguised code words signifying the acceptance of
drugs and arrived with and accompanied the Beatles wherever they went, to be "discovered" by "teenagers." Incidentally, the word "teenagers" was
never used until just before the Beatles arrived on the scene, courtesy of the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations.”
It is therefore, regardless of any truly accountable origin, (the establishment controls ‘documented proofs’ which is why they always demand
them), undeniable that since the 60’s drugs, music and the kind of mass youth driven shamanistic gatherings that many consider are an extension of
Woodstock have literally become a new religion for H.G Wells ‘Angry Young Men’. They are Huxley’s Brave New Children, dancing somatized, happy
and free in their semi divine orgiastic frenzy and chemically induced rapture. They have become their captive audience to the pleasures of their own
If final confirmation were even needed it is an easily verifiable fact that Woodstock was originally the brainchild of Artie Kornfield, a director of
EMI’s Capitol Records. They, together with a partnership of American pharmaceutical companies actually provided the funding and organisation for the
event. John Roberts, one of the organisers and heir to one of the funding pharmaceutical companies was later found guilty of mass drugging. 100, 000
to 500,000 people strong festivals like Woodstock were commonplace for the next few years, as was the almost limitless supply of '___', marijuana and
that special kind of kinky ‘finger wagging’ press coverage which constituted the kind of promotion money literally couldn’t buy! The media
systems guaranteed anyone ‘young’ and ‘cool’ would just have to be there to demonstrate their glorious defiance of the old order!
If the current ‘Good Times’, ‘Disco Inferno-Party Culture’ had a slogan it could doubtlessly do any better than to use Aleister Crowley’s
‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law’.
John Lennon certainly did get his ‘revolution’!
Whilst I’m not going to dive into the myriad forms of unverifiable speculation and wild interpretation that exist on the subject of the Beatles
conscious or, probably mostly, unconscious role in all this one can’t help but look at the actions of their lives and the words they themselves
John Lennon, for example, said the name ‘The Beatles’ came to him in a dream. A talking pig on a flaming pie said ‘you will be called The
Beatles with an a’. An interesting start. He frequently stated he would zone into an Alpha state and have all kinds of visions and hallucinations.
He later wrote in his book ‘a Spaniard in the Works’, comments like “Jesus, a garlic-eating, stinking little yellow, greasy fascist bastard
catholic Spaniard” and the equally famous, but less quoted, “Christianity will go, it will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that. I’m
right and will be proved right. You just wait…We’re more powerful than Jesus ever was”. Derek Taylor, Press Officer for the Beatles is quoted as
saying “They're completely anti-Christ. I mean, I am anti-Christ as well, but they're so anti-Christ they shock me which isn't an easy thing.”
Even George Martin, their producer, once hysterically, said “I believed that he was Satan himself at times”. They all, as early as 1964 declared
they did not believe in God.
If any group of individuals floating around in the sixties were ‘acting receivers’ for an occult possession – could any set of guys be better
placed? We are so trained to look for ‘occult possession’ only as a movie caricature villain or a Crowley-esque public enemy archetype that we
automatically discard the obvious which in reality effect the most social change.That is that the most prominent and popular icons are those who are
there to change us.
The Beatles journey of ‘discovery’ through drugs, eastern mysticism and the occult seems on the surface to be harmless enough, and one shared
literally by millions, but one thing is certain their music and their ‘cool’ behaviour literally changed the world forever. Of course ask them and
they’ll say ‘ absurd’ but regardless of their motivations the effects are undeniable.
Even today in an over-saturated music industry their works are still strange and fantastically mesmerising to listen to. I am always struck by the
strange vitality and it’s especially odd when heard through headphones. If you’ve not listened to any lately go and get yourself a re-mastered
copy of a track like ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ or ‘A day in the Life’ and you’ll know exactly what I mean. I had something of a background in
music production and mastering and I’m telling you as a mixing engineer and producer their music is literally ‘too weird’ - so out of this world
but beautiful and powerful all the same. I challenge you to find another artistic parallel to the Beatles.
I know George Martin, the charming disarming man that he is, will frown upon the statement but even the rest of his production legacy sounds nothing
like the work he did with the Beatles. In another interview John talked about the source of his inspiration “The most enjoyable thing for me is the
inspirational, the spirit. My joy is when your like possessed, like a medium. I’ll be sitting around, it will come in the middle of the night…this
thing comes as a whole piece, you know, words and music. I think, can I say I wrote this? I don’t know who the hell wrote it. I’m just sitting
here and the whole damn song comes out”. Paul McCartney has famously said of ‘Yesterday’ that he woke up with the entire tune, words and all in
his head and was humming it all day. He was convinced it was an old song and asked the other members of the band if they had ever heard of it.
Yesterday, of course, went on to be the most recorded song of all time – and Paul McCartney says it came to him in a dream! It echoes many of the
ideas of possession we have seen throughout man’s history. It certainly aligns with what Jim Morrison had to say on the subject “ I met the spirit
of Music…An appearance of the Devil in a Venice canal, running. I saw a Satan or Satyr, moving beside me, a fleshly shadow of my secret
When you consider the grim ending and the chilling way in which John Lennon’s killer consistently claims the voices in his head made him do it, one
has to wonder if the pied piper was at work again somehow calling in his children to play and accompany him into the ‘meadow on the other
In a 1981 posthumous interview for Playboy magazine when asked if the Beatles would ever consider reuniting John replied “If they didn’t
understand the Beatles and the sixties then, what the # could we do for them now? Do we have to divide the fishes and the loaves for the multitudes
again? Do we have to walk on water again because the whole pile of dummies didn’t see it the first time, or didn’t believe it when they saw?”
Evidently, if they did not know at the time what the impact of their earthly presence was they certainly became aware of it when they looked backwards
into the past.
In a psychiatric interview Mark Chapman gave the following interview “He tells me he can feel the presence of Satan’s demons around him…I can
feel their thoughts. I hear their thoughts. I can hear them talking, but not from the outside, from the inside.” “ He tells me that is was
Satan’s demons that gave him the strength and the opportunity for the present offence…”
Of course we could just be witnessing the actions of a schizophrenic psychopath, but no can anyone deny the Beatles rise and fall is almost like
watching a modern myth being formed before your very eyes. Perhaps like Napoleon and Joan of Arc, John Lennon had served his part and was no longer
required. Removed from the game before he could re-write his own history and act as a warning to his own legacy.
What is key to remember is that just because you haven’t been contacted, opened yourself up to or been inspired by this control system, and that you
may after considering the consequence of such paths choose to ‘keep a lid on’ that particular aspect of your personality, it doesn’t mean they
haven’t! Incredible it seems to be reading this I know, but there are very few, if any other valid explanations for many of the formative events of
mankind. Too many lives have been lost, to many radical 90 degree turns in history have resulted from events, which without exception have some
‘religious’ component to them.
The very heart felt desire to become a tyrant, a celebrity, a great leader, to rise to greatness in any form regardless of cost is probably the only
qualification anyone really needs after that all you really need to do is be willing to carry out ‘all those inspired thoughts’ in your name.
It maybe that simple – that is how you contact the ‘control system’ – you merely offer yourself – completely, utterly and totally.
Literally, it is as if you sell your soul inside your mind and the control system looks up your record and ‘checks the box’ on your card file –
then the fun begins! The bloody acts of tyranny and power are assured to continue unless we understand what and why this symptom of human experience
continues to manifest itself and why the individual ego seems to thrive on a kind of salacious self-indulgent moralistic crusading. Perhaps then and
only then can mankind ever claim to be truly free!
It is written in Haitian voodoo lore that the first step in selling your soul is to believe that you even can sell it!
The knowledge of how to perform such an act of faith is something we may all have once had but which has since been erased from history. These are
ancient words of power that our secret ruling hierarchies no longer need or want in the public mind. If the ordinary man was to utter the ineffable
name of God they would never need the charity and considerate caretaking’ offered by Big Brother. Those who achieve power literally have the
techniques and have had contact with the denizens/powers of this other dimension – this astral muse, Jung’s collective consciousness, the
self-empowering archetypes of the Greek myths, the Fairies and their hidden ‘Secret Commonwealth’, the UFO people – whatever you wish to call
it or them - these ‘higher powers’ have driven, perhaps in some cases one could argue even charitably facilitated, mankind in to doing whatever it
is they desire.
This discriminatory visitation policy is what continues to allow this force/being/phenomena to go on, century after century, virtually undetected
within the cultures of ordinary everyday lives of millions of people at a ‘real world’ street life level. It why the existence of is only evident
and recorded in the hard to believe histories of lunatics, literary visionary, occultists and mythology – be it ancient or modern. It is why those
‘untouched’ by its shadowy grace deny its existence.
The paradox is that the evidence is everywhere. It is saturating our civilisations but that due to their paranormal origins and the literally hypnotic
seduction and masking most people are literally intoxicated and unable to recognise the source and so it becomes entirely self-concealing.
It is especially effective against the part-time curiosity of people far to busy with life to worry about the possible existence of UFO’s, the
astral plane, goblins, dragons, Satan, the devil and god!.
After all, even now, do you really believe that ‘the devil’ got John Lennon shot? Of course you don’t – but for all our sakes perhaps we
should begin to practice Orwell’s doublethink. If we both hold two ideas simultaneously in mind - that the Devil did kill John Lennon and that he
did not – then perhaps we may begin to find the courage and technique to strip the mask off our great historical opponent. Once you’ve seen it for
yourself you can then quickly and safely slip back to ‘the denial’ and resume ordinary life. It’s a start.
