‘Because propaganda one is the truth’

Who or what is

Daath Secretariat?

Daath is, and is not. In the same way that an idea is real, and thus also knowledge, and yet is not. When does an idea become real, when is it tangible, what is the manifestation of an idea, and crucially can there be more than one expression of an idea?

The purpose of this notice is to advise all those with ‘knowledge’ that Yesod is established under Kether. It is not the time for those within a circle of knowledge to watch. The stakes are simply too high.

The Great Work is upon us, and the plans laid by our forebears are hijacked, being used solely for the profit of a few, rather than for the good of all. Though there are those whose knowledge is solely mundane, and thus profane, all are sons and daughters of Adam.

It is not time to fight fire with fire, but rather to make the fire burn itself out by application of air, then dampen their embers with the water of our souls, and commit their ashes to the earth.

‘11 is the number of those who are of us.’

Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not.’

Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite....

...I've just been watching the Republican convention, and damn, if I was an American I'd buy into their Shit. I mean this is the country that brings us Hollywood, and tho' I shouldn't really admit it I watch chick flicks, and yeh sometimes (but only sometimes!!!) they get me, and I feel the tears well up. Of course never when I'm with friends, then its Helicopters and Wagner all the way, Jim Morrison and Dionysis.

So with these kidnapped Frenchmen, I got to thinking about Republics and Freedom, and while the French are as guilty as any of we former colonial powers, the fact is that their republic addresses the fact that liberty must be tempered by equality and brotherhood. I have a some statistics for you when it comes to equality and brotherhood, and it may explain why these phrases are somewhat noticable by their absence from American politicians vocabulary, be them Elephants, Mules, or collectively a load of Asses. So here we go....

There is a term 'ecological footprint' which is calculated to be the 'cost' of an individuals lifestyle dependent on seven major activities measured in Hectares. These activities are; i) growing crops, ii) grazing animals, iii) harvesting timber, iv) marine and freshwater fishing, v) accommodation of residential and industrial facilities, vi) burning fossil fuels, and vii) waste disposal. So let us consider the actual footprint for individuals across our globe. The African and the Asian Pacific individual takes around 1.5 Hectares, under the global allowance which is considered to be 1.9 Hectares. The Middle-East, Central Asia, Latin America, and the Carribean come in at the average of around 2.3 Hectares. Central and Eastern Europe jump considerably to around 4 Hectares per individual, with Western European individuals having the luxury of nearly 3 times that of an African at around 5 hectares. So what of America with its talk of liberty and freedom? Well their ecological footprint comes in at a staggering double that of Western Europe, at 10 Hectares for each individual, on average of course. (Human Evolutionary Genetics, 2004, Hurles, M. E. et al., Garland Science, p.430)

So its pretty clear why American poiticians rarely add the term equality and brotherhood to their statements about freedom and liberty. It was shortly after 9/11 that I recall President George W. Bush exclaiming; '...this is an attack on the free world!' The question is Mr Bush, if we are free, then what are they? Not just the terrorists that you so kindly told us we were with, if we weren't with you, but the every day people around the world struggling to survive. What was it Rousseau said; 'Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains.' The point is, it is we that hold the keys to the locks, and if we are bound by a 'social contract' then let it be more than the hollow clamour for our freedom, let it be 'freedom with equality and brotherhood'.

Et in Arcadia Ego...

I remember an interesting conversation while I was working at the BBC. It went something along the lines of me saying that I believed that should the world continue, most western houses would have a Quran in them in the future. A female colleague immediately dismissed the idea as ridiculous, whereupon her line manager said that he did not see why it couldn't happen, after all their was a precedent, the bible...

Actually, despite people laughing at groups like Al Muhajiroon for wanting an Islamic state in the UK, the fact is they may be laughing many centuries after the fact.

Umberto Eco once said that you were sure to recognise a 'lunatic' by the fact that he invariably mentions the 'Knights Templar', I have often wondered whether he was utilising a clever linguistic/semiological tool, given the symbolism of the moon, which surely induces such lunacy. Given his subject being semiotics it is naive to think that this statement was uncontrolled stumbling.

So let us not only mention the Templar, but get down to the real knitty gritty, the stuff that real conspiracy theories are made of. They basically set of to defend the Holy Land from papal defined infidels, a case of the pot calling the kettle black if ever there was. Was their quest based on some deep understanding of the mystery of God? Begone...I would wager that many of them had a basic literacy, given that many clerics only had a limited grasp of Latin and Greek and thus the bible. Let us jump forward and consider some of the accusations put to the Temple at the time they were arrested;
  1. That they denied the divinity of Jesus.
  2. That they rejected the cross and crucifixion.
  3. That they rejected the sacrements.

now considering the time that the Templar had spent in the middle east, and some of the renuciations made by muslims as a result of the guidance recieved by their prophet, is it such a massive leap to infer that maybe the Templar had in fact been discussing the finer points of religion with their enemies/captors? Now here's a thought, returning to the image of 'la luna' if one was to add the reconciling pentagram (see previous post) to the image of the moon, we would have an interesting semiotic formula, one might even go so far as to say it could represent 'The widow and her son' where have I heard that phrase before...'The Widow's son.'

We surely will be judged by the future....

... of this I am sure. But more than just when is the future, also where is it for surely it is a place, a place to arrive, but maybe also a place to leave. Is there only one, or a myriad? Over the years I have come to believe that communication takes place, in fact further, maybe even physical journeys; that time is more complex than a mere linear chronological journey is something of which I am sure. I have read to much science fiction I hear you comment. Well true I have...but it is the real life experiences I have had that make me speak thus, and not just words within books. I will recount two such stories for you...

It was in the summer of 1994 I think that I first laid eyes upon one of the most exquisite women I have ever seen. She was a vision, and it was not long before I had laid more than my eyes upon her. She was proof to the benefit of outbreeding, having genes that probably represented each of the four corners of the world, hailing from Antigua, lately of London. During our short affair I became aware that she had a young son, who at my time of meeting must have been around 3 years old. He had a very individual look (and an equally individual name), having such a beautiful mother, and I presume an equally attractive father, who I believe had some South East Asian blood; the point is that the boy's look was distinctive.
The relationship lasted for a couple of months, and shortly after I found myself in the throws of an episode of illness, and underwent the almost obligatory 'tours' that seem to accompany such times. I found myself in a mosque in the city of Liverpool, during the holy month of Ramadhan if I recall correctly. I was sat with my back against a wall, when a young boy hobbled into the masjid. He and his friend made directly for me, sat and began to speak with me. I was speechless, and slightly more than a little worried, for I was sure that this 15 year old was in fact the very same son of the girl I had been seeing a short time previously. We spoke and this fear passed from me, after all it was simply absurd to think such a thing. This boy was plainly a scouser, he spoke with an authentic colloquial accent, and from what I could gather was native to Toxteth. I asked the boy why he had a limp, to which he replied that he had hurt it during a game of football. We spoke for a little time, and as the boy left and we exchanged salutations of peace I enquired as to his name....and as he replied, I froze, for his name was the very same name, a highly unusual name, that the son of my girlfriend had had....

A couple of years later, I was again in one of my heightened states, what I like to call being 'Sufied'. I was living in west London, and visited Holland Park on a daily basis. The park having multiple entrances allowed me variety in my method of entry and exit, and I found one road in particular attractive, lying to the east of the park, and leading to an area that was north of High Street Kensington. It was around this time that my internal dialogue was interupted by a voice that I recognised as not originating from myself. I began to hold long debates with the voice, who eventually revealed that she was the voice of my wife. I was of course confused as at the time I was not married. The voice informed me that she was my wife in the future, and having no evidence to prove otherwise I took her at her word. As I walked down the specific road the voice drew my attention to a house, and I interpreted that this must be where we lived in the future, good news really as it was a particularly attractive residence. The conversations continued, and I was informed that we had strong and intelligent children, and that life on the whole was fulfilling and good. On my walks down the particular road, I noticed that opposite to the house of my future was a middle eastern embassy. Subsequently the embassy took on deeper and deeper meaning to me, culminating in me removing the plaque from the embassy, which I then attempted to use as an oversized credit card at a local shop to purchase some cigarettes. Surprisingly they neither saw the humour, or the inherent credit value, and a short time later I was stopped and ultimately detained under the mental health act.
I met the mother of my children in the latter months of 1999, at a gig of some mutual friends. It was not long before we were married, and an ex colleague of hers helped us arrange the wedding which took place at a west London masjid. We arrived at the house of her colleague and we spoke on many subjects, one being how they had met. I learned that they had worked together in a middle eastern embassy to the east of Holland Park. My mind became still and I enquired; 'Do you remember an episode where the plaque of the embassy was removed?' My wife's colleague replied; 'Oh yes I do, The police said a drunkard had done it. In fact it was while you were working with us...' and the colleague gestered toward my wife. I guess the Police had to say something other than a wandering Sufi had removed it....

Something to merely sing?

'AND did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.'

William Blake

Some say the word is Jah Baal On, a hybrid of pagan gods. They know little. The sea faring travellers of the eastern mediterranean surely travelled to the isles in 'Oceanus Hyperboreas'. And so bretheren (and sisteren) we are fellow travellers, and for those who may need a number I can think of none better than 2020, so let us be TL 2020. If you have understood, and have entered herein beneath the arch, between two pillars, let you stand as a third pillar. And how shall we recognise each other, while others shake with the right, we shall shake with the left and whisper; 'Zabulon' with mildness.

Reclaiming Zion...

So if I were to ask you; 'What does the word Zion mean to you?' what would you answer? Would you say that it in somehow was reflective of occupation and oppresion rather than cohabitation? Maybe you may recall the 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion' and proceed to speak to me of a global conspiracy? Would you shout; 'ZOG!' filled with hatred? Maybe the only thing that would come to mind is a trilogy of films called 'The Matrix', where Zion was an underground haven. The truth is this word means many things to many people.
In the Book of Isaiah, there is talk of a 'cornerstone' laid in Zion; 'Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation.' 'Great!!' I hear you say, more biblical gobbledygook. Well maybe, but this cornerstone is the cornerstone of the most important construction we can hope to build, where we ourselves are the stones, each marked with the reconciling pentagram, each being as Jeheshuah. It is not an edifice made of rock, brick or mortar. It is a temple where each stone may physically travel, meet and reconvene the temple, with people that may not even realise they are stones. This temple doesn't have a dogma, has no wealth or gold, no priests, it is invisible. It was precisely for that reason that when the historical Jesus spoke of rebuilding the temple in three days he was mocked, the thing is religious people on the whole just don't get this shit, they didn't then, they don't now, and God only knows if they ever will!!!!
Anyone who has bothered to read any of my ranting, and for whom it has made sense, we then my friend are kindred. We were given two commandments by the historical Jesus, worship God alone (whatever the word 'God' means to you, if you don't like the word use another, or use no word at all), and love your neighbour as yourself. We are told if we keep to these two principles, we will not go far wrong, and in my experience this is not a lie. Welcome to the underground!!!
Oh and before I forget; '...follow the white rabbit!'

Concerning the reconciling pentagram....

This originally formed an email to someone concerning the pentagram, a symbol often considered in some way representative of all manner of ideologies and beliefs, from paganism, through masonry, and even publicly considered satanic by the Roman church (Tho' what they know and discuss between themselves is best known to them). The information herein concerning the pentagram may be of some interest, and I believe should begin to be known by those some would label 'profane'. As I asked in my primary post; 'Do you believe in us and them?'

In the bible there is symbolic imagery used, primarily in Ezekiel and Revelation. Here it is said that 'around' the throne of God there are four Wheels (Ezekiel) or four beasts (Revelation). These then bear the faces of creatures; a Lion, an Eagle, a Man, and a Bull. These then would be the four fixed signs of the zodiac as they appear to us from our planet, the validity of astrological analysis is irrelevant just suffice that these sectors of our sky are divided thus. These four fixed signs then are representative of the alchemist elements of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth, and can be said to correspond to the four lettered name of God יהוה romanised to IHVH, which when voweled provides the commonly known name Jehovah or Jah'weh. These then could be said to sit at the points of the base of a pyramid, at the points of a cross if you will, thus as it was said in revelation; 'Egypt, where Jesus was spiritually crucified' One might therefore deduct that the fifth point, the apex of the pyramid, is the fifth point of the star, but as I will illustrate that would be the belief of one who does not believe, rather the apex of the pyramid is infact our father, metaphorical or real, Adam. Returning to the name Jehovah, rather than describing God in his 'essence' it rather describes the tools/elements with which he created (Fire, Water, Air, and Earth). If you were to bake a cake, and it was to develop a consciousness, it may well ponder its own nature, then it may ponder how it came to be, deciding there was a benign creator, it may well choose to call you a suitable four lettered name FSEW having the correspondence of Flour, Sugar, Eggs, and Water, but we both know your name is your name, but cakes know little. Jehovah then describes the elements, albeit it alchemical, by which God created universe.
This may seem fine, but for mystics, of whom the templar came across many in the middle-east, the essence of God and thus a suitable name must evoke the intangible, infinite, and absolute nature of God, not merely the 'matter' from which we came. In Hebrew there were no numerals, the letters themselves stood as numbers. To illustrate the Hebrew mystic art of Gematria (numerology if you will) I will return you to the name Jehovah. If one considers all Hebrew text as equations of sorts then IHVH has a value of 26 ( I (10) + H (5) + V (6) + H (5) = 26), if one takes too further Hebrew words Love אהבה (AHBH) and Unity אחד (AChD) and considers their numeric value A (1) + H (5) + B (2) + H (5) = 13 and A (1) + Ch (8) + D (4) = 13, then it can be seen that numerically they are equal and according to the Hebrew mystic tradition if two words (or in fact phrases or whole chapters) are numerically equal then they share a quality. If I was then to say to you Jehovah (creation) is Love and Unity, I am sure it would make sense, in fact to put it in the mouth of Bob Marley; 'Jah...One Love' or in simple math 26 = 13 + 13.
To return to the symbol of the pentagram, if one is unhappy with the finite nature of the name Jah'weh, one could say that there is an infinite beyond our created world. If we took our pyramid base and choose to paradoxically make a finite point representing the infinite beyond (vanishing point as in drawing perspective) say directly above the centre of the diagonal cross of the pyramid base, and we were then to join the four points of the pyramid base to it, as if each proceeded from that infinite source, we would create for ourselves a pentagram. But what would be a suitable symbol for this point of our new geometric shape? Again returning to Hebrew there is a phrase from Genesis which means 'spirit of God' RUACh ELOHIM which when we break down into a number is said to equal 300 (the math is slightly altered as some of the roman letters are vowels, which are not numbered) there is a corresponding letter in Hebrew to the number 300, that being ש Shin, Thus we have a suitable symbol for our vanishing point.
It is also of interest that we also have a new word combining IHVH יהוה and ש Sh the new word being IHShVH יהשוה or to again Romanise with vowels Jeh'shuah which when Hellenised becomes Jesus, thus when Jesus says; ' cannot come to Lord unless by me.' He is being very subtle indeed to again paraphrase; ' cunning as a snake, and as harmless as a lamb.'
To return to the temple, members of such a temple, bear the mark of Jeheshuah waiting on his return each carrying out to the best of their ability the formula his name represented. To be spiritually crucified n Egypt but to have faith in the infinite and absolute creator. Those who hold and look to a different symbol, lets say for arguments sake a cross, well they will undoubtedly follow the one who will come to fulfill their expectations. But then isn't that exactly what was prophesised in the Revelation?

Dead poets society....

I'd like to claim I know this piece of prose as a result of my high brow literary accomplishments. Fact is I first heard it on a Robin Williams film called 'Dead Poets Society.' Never the less its is an astounding piece of writing and well worth including in my blogg as a personal aspiration. Welcome me Hyberborea my home.

'Come, my friends.'T is not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite the sounding furrows; for my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset, and the baths of all the western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down; It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, and see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.'

Alfred Lord Tennyson. Ulysses.

For every force there is an equal and opposite force...

For us in the twenty first century, this must surely seem a pretty basic law. For many years it resounded in my mind and later I discovered solace in a philisophical idea that somewhat echoes it. I remember it was while I was living in Oxford in my late teens that I first heard the term dialectic. In fact I did not 'hear' I recall I was reading about Socrates, you know him...the Greek guy in 'Bill and Ted's excellent adventure'. At first I was unsure of what the term meant, wondering if it was a linguistic term having something to do with colloquial variation of langauge. Actually this now seems an insightful concept given that I was fumbling in the dark. I suppose I should actually define what I'm talking about before I waffle on anymore. Dialectic is the idea that truth needs to be pursued by modifying one's position through questioning and conflict with opposing ideas. Simply put every idea can be considered a thesis, but as such and considering Newton's law it must by nature have an antithesis, for surely ideas have force. Where people like Socrates, Hegel, and Marx advance from Newton is that they answer the paradox posed his law; 'What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? This answer not solely being 'conflict' as I hear whispered from the marxist in the corner, but rather 'synthesis'.

It was years later during a period of mental illness that this idea formed itself around a language that apparently we have in common, mathematics. I had been reading about the Hebrew mystic oral tradition known as Qabbalah, and this had turned the idea of numbers upside down in my mind. I had an epiphany concerning the nature of numbers and the relationship between them. I contemplated the idea of nothing, and how that idea could become potentially limitless, and in turn how that could become in my mind, though veiled, an absolute. So I began to ponder the nature of Zero, and that rather than being an absence it could also be seen as a potential. Then I wondered about this potential and it became manifest as the number One. I wondered if therefore One was the dialectic of Zero, and I reversed my journey from One to Zero, whereupon I discovered the movement of Negative One. I now had three points; One, Zero, and Negative One. When I considered this further I realised that between Negative One and One, there was a distance of Two. I think I have made my point about how ideas can develop, and it was a major breakthrough as I realised the philosophy behind what I had previously solely considered a basic progressing decimal number sequence.
As I sat in my cell in the pychiatric wing of a London prison, I pondered that maybe the universe was constructed in this way, and lifted my pencil and sketched what became diagramatic renditions of living vortex within which we may find ourself.
I continued along this idea, derived from the diagonal cross, the pyramid, and the name Tetragrammaton, IHVH, and the concept spiralled my mind upward and outward.
Needless to say I used a number of pieces of paper, and every so often a face would appear at the door of my cell, checking that I had not harmed myself. But though I appeared to be silently writing, I was not there I was with the stars and beyond.....

A foot made of black tourmaline...

Just had a strange dream. Can't fully remember it...except that at the end my left foot seemed to be infected. Upon closer inspection it appeared to have partly become black tourmaline. There were a couple of my friends, who are medics, with me in the moments before I returned to a waking state, one of whom pointed out; ''s not that serious really, in fact it's just splinters.' whereupon he pulled out a slightly dirty pair of tweezers and began removing the tourmaline from my foot in what appeared worryingly large pieces. Despite the large amount of matter being removed from my foot, upon conclusion my foot looked and felt adequately normal, and I awoke feeling unworried.

A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.

Well given my quote which I carefully selected to add gravitas to my blogg, it seems that I can't even figure out the idiots way of posting on my own log. I had wanted to create a funky HTML webpage called 'Wheat from the chaff', but as I am a total dullard this will have to do. It was going to be in the format of a psychometric test, you know the ones that claim they will analyse you if you take a minute to answer a few questions. Then at the end of it all, it was not going to give you any analysis, just tell you that you know what your answers were, you know in your heart of hearts what kinda cat you are, and really you have all the answers you need, without some jumped up idiot telling you.

So anyway I may as well list the questions, see what you make of yourself...

1. Have you ever in your life sat with friends and discussed the woes of the world?
2. Do you believe that humankind is different to the rest of the animal kingdom in any significant way?
3. Given a choice will you help someone who appears in need of assistance as you pass by?
4. Would you expect people you consider close friends to empathise with people in a difficult situation?
5. Would you choose to profit monetarily from a person that was in a vulnerable and weak situation?
6. When publicly presented with a clear binary decision between what you say you consider right and wrong will you choose your declared moral stance?
7. When no one is watching and you are presented with a clear binary decision between what you say you consider right and wrong, will you choose your declared moral stance?
8. Do you consider the ills of the world occasionally, and realise that however you would like to change the world, the reality is that you have no power?
9. When you listen to someone speak of their dreams for a better world do you think them idealistic, misguided, or do you share the dream?
10. When you go and buy a coffee from a chain coffee shop do you choose regular coffee or trade-fair?
11. If you learnt that someone you were close to directly profited from poverty in the third world, would you still be able to consider them a friend?
12. Do you think voting really doesn’t change anything?
13. If, when discussing the woes of the world, have a number present agreed that if they had the power to change the world they would?
14. If, when discussing the woes of the world, have a number present agreed that if they had the power to change the world they would, but that not everyone in the world feels the same way?
15. Do you believe in us and them?
16. Have you ever cried?
17. Do you believe in humanity?
18. Do you believe that when you wake up tomorrow it’s a new day?
19 Did anyone ever tell you that you can achieve anything?
20. Have you ever fed someone who was hungry, anyone, a friend, a relative, a stranger?
21. If you were alone, in an unknown land, surrounded by what appeared as darkness, with nothing but the clothes you were standing in, would you be scared?
22. Have you ever seen a halo?
23. Do you believe that if the whole of your life fell apart, there would be people ready to pick you, and the pieces up?
24 Do you ever ‘…measure the temple within?’
25 Have you ever come across this numeric sequence, and if so does it have any meaning for you; ‘1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256 512 1024’?
26 Do you believe in the power of communication and cooperation?
27. Have you ever felt inspired?
28. Do you believe you can create anything of value that will endure?
29. Is this test annoying you?
30 Does money bring freedom?
31. Would you prefer to have the ability to free someone from slavery rather than the ability to live a slightly more materially accomplished life?
32. Do you believe in the strength of numbers?
33. Do you prefer the company of people who appear to agree with you on issues, but whom you know have not thought through the issue deeply, over the company of those who appear to disagree with you fundamentally, but appear to have struggled intellectually and emotionally to reach a conclusion that they can live with?
34. Does the word ‘synthesis’ resonate with you?
35. Do believe that you are literally related to everyone, rather than in some metaphorical and spiritual way?
36. Should there be losers in the human race?
37. Can you have the head of an eagle, the heart of a lion, be as sly as a snake, and as harmless as a sheep?
38. When on a journey are you surrounded by strangers, or are they fellow travellers?
39. Do you prefer possessing over sharing?
40. Do you understand that everything becomes old with time?
41. Can you keep a promise?
