Timothy Leary and Starseed Transmission

Posted in: Timothy Leary by Moon Elf on August 08, 2009

Timothy Leary’s Signature (I found this an odd curiosity when I first started this research and posted to the Interra group weeks ago but didn’t understand it then)

http://www.toolband.com/news/letter/2003_04.php

It was while looking at the way Dr. Timothy Leary signed the 23 drawings that are featured in a display at THE LIGHT SPACE GALLERY in Venice, California, that I first noticed that the slashes across the ‘T’ and ‘L’ made the letters look almost identical to the ‘runes’ in a highly controversial and often misunderstood occult symbol known as “The Black Sun.”

Although the number 23 is connected with the star Sirius and Dr. Leary’s “Starseed Transmissions” (those received during the ‘dog days’ of 1973), which concerns a mystery* that involves Sirius’s dark companion (prosaically called Sirius B) – a ‘black sun’ known to various initiatory orders as “the sun behind the sun” and “The Hidden God”, I couldn’t help but wonder if he (Leary) hadn’t tuned into the even more esoteric concept of the Black Sun. In this case, the Black Sun symbolized the spiritual luminosity that is buried deep within the bowels of the earth. Here, “bowels of the earth” is a coded al-Khem-ical phrase for both the void of creation and another (hidden) dimension of consciousness called “Universe B.” Just as Sirius B is invisible to the naked eye (first photographed in the 1970s), the Black Sun of occult tradition is invisible to ordinary human perception. But to those who somehow do perceive it, this Black Sun serves as a beacon of the other side – that which humankind should seek via Da’ath (the so-called ‘false sephira’) on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, which is the gateway that leads to the shadow-side of the Tree. Interestingly enough, in light of Dr. Leary’s ideas about the transmutation of consciousness from our “linear terrestrial circuits of the nervous system to the future circuits”, the other side of the Tree of Life is usually related to the future.

So, was the veil lifted? Did Timothy Leary encode in his idiosyncratic signature the belief that he had perceived the shining darkness of this occult Black Sun with its orbit of mystery (again like Sirius B) via the Starseed Transmissions (or from other experiments he conducted)? This esoteric Black Sun which shall transform humankind spiritually when the ‘Eye’ is opened.

Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem

[which is latin for "visit the interior of the earth and there by rectification find the hidden stone". This ancient alchemical magickal formula symbolises the quest each of us have towards fulfilling our potential and finding the hidden treasures within our own worlds.]

This concerns the incredible knowledge of the Dogon tribe in Mali, Africa, who, according to some researchers, know specific details relating to the astro-physics (including periodicity and weight) of the Sirius system.

THE BLACK SUN IS: The Shadow Self – within the Self – and also the connection to the higher principle of the Shadow Self of “God” too, better known as the Hidden God.

The Shadow Self

Posted in: The Shadow Self (Non-Self) by Moon Elf on

Psychology:  THE BLACK SUN: ARCHETYPAL IMAGE OF THE NON-SELF one of the most numinous images of alchemical psychology: that which dissimulates consciousness as an independently existing Self. It is an expression of the archetypal imagination as distinguished from humanistic imagination rooted in Western metaphysics. The black Sun breaks up the logical life of the soul. It refuses all reification, and in the light of its dark effulgence psychology stands at the threshold of the new millennium.

Thus one can see that it’s not all negative but could easily be contrived as such and can also be associated with The Shadow Self but can also be a dysfunctional “center” of Self or even the Non-Self or King Fear!

The Black Sun

Posted in: 14. The Black Sun by Moon Elf on

http://www.runegild.org/BlackSunAnalysis.pdf

In esoteric Runelore the figure makes 3 swastikas which represent Arising, Being, & Passing Away to a new Arising.  Such as the solar eclipse represents the death of Osiris and the rise of Horus.

Found on the Norse Pagan band Non’s Website –

“There is a black sun which is not visible to the human eye.
It is our beacon and its fire burns within us”
– Akkadian temple inscription

The Black Sun however seems to sometimes (mostly) but not always be associated with the Dark Left-Hand path of Satanic and similar cults as the “negative” version of The Star or The Sun of popular esoteric philosophy.

Ancient eclipses had very powerful effects on the history of the human race. It was traditional seen as a bad omen. The word “eclipse” is derived from the Greek, “ekleipsis”, which means “omission” or “abandonment”. In Chinese it is “shih”, which means, “to eat up”.  (again refer to section on Evil regarding the absence of God).

In alchemy, the black sun, or “sol niger,” represents the dark, destructive aspects of the sun.

From a description of the Icon of the Annunciation:  The black sun in the upper part of the scene represents the essence of God, indefinable and unknowable; the rays represent His energies (in the form of the Holy Trinity) which are manifestations of His essence and can therefore be known.

This icon represents the Annunciation, that is, the moment when “The angel came in unto (Mary), and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.” (KJV, Luke 1: 28-31).

In Western Kabbalistic Tradition, Persephone and Hades are first encountered on the path between Malkuth and Yesod with Hecate as guardian of their Mystery. Pluto/Hades in his dark glory (the Black Sun or shadow-self) and Persephone as Queen of the Underworld, ruling death and rebirth (the bright-self) are to be encountered on the path between Yesod and Tippareth. These two paths lead to the “hidden riches” within the individual. The paths form part of an ongoing series of confrontations which are resolved in the process of attaining internal balance. This balance is to be found in the dance of energy which is poised at the knife edge between the forces of darkness and light, a manifestation of the power of Pluto.

Solar Eclipse

Posted in: Solar Eclipse by Moon Elf on

The winged globe and the Eye of Horus are both also said to be represented by the solar eclipse or Black Sun – Here is a Norse version of that which also states that it all comes down to Free Will and what you choose – this has MUCH to do with my earlier writings on “evil” and the Eye of God or Evil Eye.

Horus of Behedet

Posted in: Horus of Behedet by Moon Elf on

A form of Horus worshipped in the city of Behdet, shown in the well-known form of a solar disk with a great pair of wings, usually seen hovering above important scenes in Egyptian religious art. Made popular by Aleister Crowley under the poorly transliterated name “Hadit”, the god appears to have been a way of depicting the omnipresence of Horus. As Crowley says in Magick in Theory and Practice, “the infinitely small and atomic yet omnipresent point is called HADIT.”

The Uraeus

Posted in: Snakes / Uraeus by Moon Elf on

Why Snakes?

From Kircher’s OEdipus AEgyptiacus
The spinal cord was symbolized by a snake, and the serpent coiled upon the foreheads of the Egyptian initiates represented the Divine Fire which had crawled serpent-like up the Tree of Life. MPH

Winged Solar Disc

Posted in: Winged Solar Disc by Moon Elf on

This was the symbol of Horus of Bahdet.  Kabbalistically Kether or even better Tephireth which made me think of this symbol as the same as the Sun symbol the circle with the dot in the middle “given to me in a meditation by Kali/Brahmani”.  In Dion Fortune’s book The Winged Bull when describing the meaning of the symbols of the creature she lists the Eagle’s wings as spiritual aspirations and further as –the flight to the sun.  This rang with me in regards to the winged solar disc as I thought of it also as spiritual aspirations.   Dion makes further comments on her creature as “natural instincts soaring on …spiritual aspiration, with consciousness poised between them.”  I think that with or without the “natural instincts” the winged solar disc is as she says and is the circle with the dot in the center as The Sun – The Christ Center – the God Consciousness that resides within all of us and the wings are our spiritual aspirations toward reaching the full awareness of god within us which is also the god outside of us.

In Thelema Hadit is the  center and Nuit is the circumference.  Research this further in regards to the Alchemical Sun symbol — circle with the dot in the center.  The center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere found (nothing).

CIRCLE with a DOT (BINDU) in the center: In the complex symbolic system of Hinduism and Buddhism, the  bindu (dot) represents the male force. Together, the circle and the bindu symbolize the merging of male and female forces.

This came from an individual in a Thelemic mailing list:

If you picture yourself standing on the tree facing Tiphereth on the 32nd path of Tau and look up you have yesod with tiphereth behind it. a representation of the solar eclipse.

The ubiquitous Eye of Horus symbol of ancient Egyptian religion can be quite readily shown to have been inspired by the “Eye of God” aka “Eye in the Sky” that is manifested in the heavens above our planet Earth during most if not all total eclipses of the sun. Horus, the famous solar falcon god of ancient Egypt, was quite evidently inspired by the “winged disk” or the “Bird of the Sun” that is readily perceivable within the sun’s corona during those total eclipses of the sun in which the streamers of the sun’s corona are concentrated into the sun’s equatorial regions and thus appear very much like a bird’s wings spreading out on either side of the so-called “black sun” that is formed by the dark circle of the occulting disk of the moon. The ancient Egyptian myth of the cosmic battle between the solar falcon god Horus and the sun eating serpent god Set was quite evidently inspired by total solar eclipses as the British Museum’s reputed Egyptologist EA Wallis Budge noted well over a century ago. In fact, the solar falcon god Horus is very clearly spoken of as assuming the form of a gigantic “winged disk” in some versions of this ancient Egyptian solar eclipse myth.

The Eye of Horus symbol does not usually show the wings of the solar falcon god however the Egyptians also had a closely related winged version of their total solar eclipse inspired udjat eye symbol. I expect that the wingless Eye of Horus symbol is essentially a winged udjat eye symbol from which the wings of the coronal SunBird have been deliberately removed in order to emphasize the religious attribute of this sky god’s divine omniscience that is allegorized by the striking similarity in appearance of the totally eclipsed sun to an “Eye of God”. The “solar eye” nature of the Eye of Horus symbol is clearly revealed by the fact that some versions of this ancient Egyptian religious symbol clearly depict the pupil and iris of the “Eye of Horus” as red sun disk with a central black dot.

Liber Cordis Cincti Serpente, V:21.

But thou shalt heed none of this. Thou shalt be ever the heart, and I the serpent will coil close about thee. My coil shall never relax throughout the fons. Neither change nor sorrow nor unsubstantiality shall have thee; for thou art passed beyond all these.

NOTE:  There are a few interesting things here in regards to not only the solar eclipse and the winged Eye of Horus but also remember the Gold of Alchemy and the previous mentioned circle with the dot in the center in regards to the Eye of Horus as the red sun disk with a central black dot and the heart with the serpent coiled around it.  The serpent being a goddess symbol and being Nuit in Thelema who is nowhere to be seen.  You can also replace Hadit and Nuit with Osiris and Isis as their symbols are also Osiris as the dot and Isis as the red solar disc.  This can also be associated with the Alchemical symbol for The Sun and is also representative of Ra, The Eye of God & The Evil Eye (see notes on Evil – this is NOT a contradiction) — Horus is the same as the Christ Center.

The Winged Globe of Egypt

From Maurice’s Indian Antiquities

This symbol, which appears over the pylons or gates of many Egyptian palaces and temples, is emblematic of the three persons of the Egyptian Trinity. The wings, the serpents, and the solar orb are the insignia of Ammon, Ra, and Osiris. MPH

Theosophy & Blavatsky

Posted in: Theosophical Society by Moon Elf on

H.P. Blavatsky said, Sirius “exerts a mystic and direct influence over the entire living heaven, and is to be found linked with every great religion of antiquity.”

II,19: Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us. They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

II,20: Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us.

II,21: We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.

II,22: I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.

II,23: I am alone: there is no God where I am.

II,24: Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my friends who be hermits. Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this. Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath.

II,25: Ye are against the people, O my chosen!

II,26: I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: in my coiling there is joy. If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one. If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth, and I and the earth are one.

II,27: There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason.

II,28: Now a curse upon Because and his kin!

II,29: May Because be accursèd for ever!

II,30: If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought.

II,31: If Power asks why, then is Power weakness.

II,32: Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise.

II,33: Enough of Because! Be he damned for a dog!

II,34: But ye, o my people, rise up & awake!

 

NOTE: To me this seems to be Crowley’s answer to the Sirius Mystery – that it is a distraction and there is no “Because” to the Why of spirituality and if you even think there is then you are damning yourself to die in misery and feel not.  I can honestly say that since chasing this ‘because’ of the Sirius Mystery it is the biggest and worst distraction from true ‘centered’ spirituality.  Thus, I return to previous focal points and meditations where Kali/Brahmani gave me The Sun symbol of the circle with the dot in the center to return to spiritual centeredness.  However, chasing the Sirius Mystery and exposure to the ancient myths lead me to one symbol of extreme curiosity to me – the winged solar disc.
