“The hot mineral water was brought by conduits directly into some of the chambers and filled the pools for private or public ablutions. Other units, particularly the small, domed ones, must have been intended for sweat bathing in hot, natural steam conducted into them through underground galleries and conduits… Some of the underground galleries and cavelike spaces might have been utilized even in their natural state for curative bathing and sweating…. The subterranean zone under the hillside complex is virtually riddled with caves, chambers and galleries.”
originally, the apse had eight small niches instead of the three large ones seen now; these niches apparently contained fountains. Maiuri believed the complex served as a “nymphaeum” and was a part of the great rotunda… known as the “Temple of Venus”….
A nymphaeum thus conceived is not simply a fountain or source sacred to the water deities, the nymphs, but is also an architecturally integrated whole, shaped functionally and thematically around water….”

The concept of a permanent happy ending is specifically brought up in the Stephen King fantasy/fairy tale novel The Eyes of the Dragon which has a standard good ending for the genre, but simply states that "there were good days and bad days" afterwards.
Any messiah who comes is false: the essence of the Messiah is that he will always be coming,be coming, be coming
“Jewish Messianism,” continues Scholem, “is in its origins and by its nature — this cannot be suﬃciently emphasized— a theory of catastrophe. This theory stresses the revolutionary, cataclysmic element in the transition from every historical present to the Messianic future.”
Therefore, the nihilistic perception, which constitutes the basic theological knowledge of creatureliness, does not limit itself to recognition only: it also becomes the ground of an action, which we may call an active nihilization of being . The more nihilized the world becomes, the greater the chance for redemption. As in Midrash Tehilim : “Israel speaks to God: When will You redeem us? He answers: When you have sunk to the lowest level, at that time I will redeem you,” or in Sanhedrin 98a: “May he come, but I do not want to see him.” On which Scholem succinctly comments: “…the redemption,then, cannot be realized without dread and ruin.”
The messianic, actively nihilizing impulse is thus utterly contrary to any theodicy. The desire “to justify the ways of God to men” clashes with the will to watch the smooth, functional mechanism of being fallen down. Not only a mystic, who annuls the nothingness of theworld in his Vision, but also an anxious practitioner of theodicy, who gloriﬁes the very idea of mechanical order and harmony, are enemies of the messianic “doer.” The latter has an inborn mistrust toward anykind of well-ordered, well-oiled, well-functioning mechanisms that turn within, as William Blake has put it, the Satanic Mills of creation
Where the fall is the deepest, there grows also the greatest chance of salvation. This antinomian intuition, guarded by Scholem as the most precious treasure of Jewish messianism, shines as an eternal beacon for all disoriented religious minds of our modern epoch, as a modern guide of the perplexed.
One of the most important items of the Frankist gallery of sacred objects was the medallion of Eva Frank, who took the leadership after her father and was so famous for her beauty, that her portrait becamea focal point of worship and adoration. This aesthetic, erotic quality of beauty, so crucial for Shabbatean mystical theology, had made the elegant lady, who was courted by Casanova, into the secret female future Messiah
Sabbatian cults are well documented in the ‘Encyclopedia Judaica’ and in the writings of Israeli academics, including the late professor Y. Tishbi, Yehuda Liebes and Yaacov Katz. In a nutshell, these groups sexually practiced incest, pedophilia, adultery and homosexuality and were otherwise depraved. The Talmud states that the Messiah will come only in an age that is completely guilty or completely innocent (Sanhedrin 98a). From this epigram, the Frankists would declare, ‘Since we cannot all be saints, let us all be sinners.'”
Forget rationalism, moral radicalism, or “the political.” Messianism entails nothing if not a “philosophy of life,” the resurrection of the dead, the creation of New Man or Extreme Man. Viewing it from this perspective, I suspect that the esoteric doctrine at the core of Steven Schwarzschild’s project was “Transhumanism".
Schwarzschild now brings this idea forward by citing Mendelssohn, Lessing and Leibniz to claim that the immortal soul would have some kind of quasi-body” (pp.215-7, chapter 13, “Shekhinah and Eschatology”) (cf. the medieval sources in footnote 360n.15 for spiritual bodies).
In kabbalist accounts, the breaking of the vassals (shevirat kelim) is a recurring theme: from the breakdown of the Divine sefirot, whose wreckage forms the creation of the world, to the Fall of man, and the birth of the Golem that will repeat the cycle. This spiral marks not only a descent of the Divine into the lower realm of matter but also the ascent of matter to the Divine. It is the spiritual development of the Divine itself as it evolves into a higher form as it plummets to increasingly lower states.

To show that the Frankist Paradigm explains the startling rise of the Left in the 20th century, it is implicit to show that conventional theories are unsatisfactory. To quote Sherlock Holmes, when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
The Left of 2017 is raw demonic madness: roving savages of Antifa, unlimited and unqualified Islamic immigration, 9-year old transgendered children, decriminalization of Jihadi rape of teenage white girls, etc. This is self-evidently not a rationalist movement, and therefore it must be a quasi-theological one, rooted in radical anti-nomianism (inversion of moral rules).
An FBI RICO approach can define a systematic conspiracy. Given enough individuals and institutions acting in concert, an underlying conspiracy becomes evident
Statistical evidence can conclusively establish linkages between Sabbatean-Frankist ideas and Leftist thought. For example, the first three “Jewish” Supreme Court Justices, Cardozo, Frankfurter, and Brandeis, all came from Sabbatean or Frankist Dynasties. This coincidence is statistically impossible since a tiny minority of Jews had such lineages.
Frankist Jews in the late 19th century were said to constitute a majority of the lawyers in Prague and Warsaw. This would have terrible consequences as their subversive Frankist Jurisprudence would ultimately turn the secular West’s greatest asset, its rule of law, into its most subversive.
Ultimately, through court fiat, most
Western nations can now be fairly described as Frankist theocracies.
Further, who exactly are our Elites? They were handpicked and screened by Frankfurt School dominated Ivy League universities. France and the UK have similar gatekeeper elite institutions fully-captured by the radical Left.
Minucius Felix continues: "On the appointed day, they assemble for their banquets with all their children, sisters, and motherspeople of both sexes and every age. After many sumptuous dishes, when the company at table has grown warm and the passion of incestuous lust has been fired by drunkenness, a dog which has been tied to a lamp stand is tempted by throwing a morsel beyond the length of the leash by which it is bound. It makes a dash, and jumps for the catch. Thus, when the witnessing light has been overturned and extinguished, in the ensuing darkness which favors shamelessness, they unite in whatever revoltingly lustful embraces the hazard of chance will permit. Thus, they are all equally guilty of incest, if not in deed, yet by privity, since whatever can happen in the actions of individuals is sought for by the general desire of all."
The Age of Enlightenment (also known as the Age of Reason or simply the Enlightenment) was an intellectual and philosophical movement that dominated the world of ideas in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Enlightenment included a range of ideas centered on the value of human happiness, the pursuit of knowledge obtained by means of reason and the evidence of the senses, and ideals such as liberty, progress, toleration, fraternity, constitutional government, and separation of church and state.
Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law. ... Liberalism became a distinct movement in the Age of Enlightenment, when it became popular among Western philosophers and economists.
The Radical Enlightenment and Freemasonry:Where We Are At Now
In 1981 I first articulated the thesis of a Radical Enlightenment. I located
it in the time that Paul Hazard, writing in the 1930s, saw as the crisis of
the Western mind that is in the period of the 1680s to the 1720s. The
radicalism I identified was both political and religious: hostility toward
royal absolutism - with republics being seen as the true alternative -
coupled with a virulent deism, materialism, if not atheism, largely
articulated in the clandestine literature of the period.
Many researchers have proposed to show the extent to which Freemasonry helped to build the ideals of Enlightenment. The main conclusions that can be drawn, by analyzing their tracks, are: (1) All famous leaders of the Enlightenment had connections to Freemasonry; (2) The Enlightenment tenets overlap Freemasonry tenets, and, therefore they were supported and propagated by English, French, and American lodges; (3) Freemasonry progressively turned into a transnational vehicle for liberal thinking
the history of the Freemasons seemed to indicate that (relatively) democratic governance first originated and spread at a small scale—the Masonic lodges—and then expanded in scale through the democratic revolutions.
London experienced an eclectic mix of esoteric groups of spiritually minded seekers after privileged and secret knowledge around from 1740. One common theme uniting them was an interest in the various forms of the Kabbalah. As the previous chapter demonstrated, this was centred around Rabbi Falk (1708-1782), also known as the Baal Shem of London, which means 'a Master of Kabbalah', and he was also active in various forms of freemasonry. Falk added another complication because he was a Sabbatarian, which continued to promote a messianic hope, as well as presenting a serious challenge of antinomianism among the followers. Falk and Swedenborg were each attempting to establish a form of Kehillah,; essentially an attempt to merge Judaism and Christianity.
For what could John Locke, the defender of reason and most famous exponent of British empiricism, possibly have to say to an alche- mist, kabbalist, and Quaker? The answer is, a lot. The two were mutual friends of the merchant, Quaker, and eventual free thinker Benjamin Furly (1636-1714). Both stayed with Furly in Rotterdam for extended periods, and
both were members of the "Lantern," a group of free-spirited individuals founded by Furly, who saw themselves as beacons of light in an all-too- intolerant world.
Locke's library contained van Helmont's Paradoxal Discourses (1685); Observations circa hominem ejusq morbos (1692); The Divine Being and its Attributes (1693); Quaedampraemeditatae et consideratae Cogitationes super ... Genesis (1697); Seder Olam (1693); A Cabbalistic Dialogue (1682); the Adumbratio Kabbalae Christianae (1684); and Two Hundred Queries ... concern- ing the doctrine of the Revolution of Humane Souls (1684).
Newton knew something that most scholars have been unaware of or have strenuously denied to this day, namely that Leibniz was a gnostic and a kabbalist. Other people apparently knew this as well. In an anonymous re- view of Leibniz's system of pre-established harmony published in the Histoire Critique de la Republique des Lettres, the author comes right out and says that although he finds Leibniz's philosophy unintelligible, there is nothing novel about it; it comes straight out of the Kabbala denudata
Obviously this pre-supposes that Divine Phenomena and matter are mutually exclusive and leads to silly considerations such as a Demiurge, they also see the Spiritual as Above and the Material as Below which is again nonsense
All that exists, throughout all time and beyond, is one infinite divine Consciousness, free and blissful, which projects within the field of its awareness a vast multiplicity of apparently differentiated subjects and objects: each object an actualization of a timeless potentiality inherent in the Light of Consciousness, and each subject, you and I, the same plus a contracted locus of self-awareness. This creation, a divine play, is the result of the natural impulse within Consciousness to express the totality of its self-knowledge in action, an impulse arising from love.
PHARMACEIA (Pharmakeia), the nymph of a well with poisonous powers, near the river Ilissus, in Attica; she is described as a playmate of Oreithyia (Plat. Phaed. p. 229, c.; Timaeus, Ixr. Plat. s.v.).
sorcery," intriguingly, is pharmakeia in Greek, from which we derive our words "pharmacy" and "pharmaceutical." Diviners, enchanters, witches, and sorcerers employed drugs and other potions to put them or their clients "in the spirit" so their "magic" would work. The drugs, then, came to stand for sorcery of all kinds
Furthermore, according to the Jewish mindset found in 1 Enoch 7:1, the rebellious sons of God who took up human wives in Genesis 6, taught humans “charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants.” Therefore, this popular Jewish book shows us that the Jews didn’t think drug use and sorcery were created out of nowhere, but taught to us by fallen spiritual beings—all the more reason God would forbid such practices
