Love was All He Said
The alternate convention to which a certain “New Age” mentality turns whenever the possible existence of an actual, deliberate negativity approaches the unimpeachable, is that of the vaguely “Christian” tactic: love-bomb the blighters until they see the error of their ways, by the point-scoring Good Example set. Such cheek-turning is in practice of course a very selective espousal, since it rarely seems to constitute the day-by-day business attitude of the very same proponent. liven in the case however that this recommendation weren’t outright hypocrisy, it would remain fatally fatuous; for, as the Ra entity proclaims to one of the questioners who presented just such a tidy “solution”, they (the Orions) “do not want your love”.
This rebuff clearly meant that any “love-rays” directed toward the zones of Conscious or Spiritual Negativity would find nothing receptive on which to fall, no substance upon which to work. The inescapable implication was that any such proposal, suitable enough perhaps for beings of a straight 3rd-density consciousness not decisively polarized and therefore still possessing a “recessed trait” of potential goodness able to be acted upon, when applied toward Spiritual Negativity of the Higher Densities simply served as clear indication that its proponent hadn’t understood the point.
The Negativity of the Higher Densities is ipso facto awake; it has chosen the rejection of other-love as a whole-being orientation, and therefore has no subconscious residuum of receptivity that might secretly “respond” to the good intentions of a positively-directed beam (even if such a beam proceeded from a sincere resolve which consistently applied its Samaritan counsel in all other avenues of life).
Indeed there is deeper implication than this. In the face of such uncommon or truly spiritual negativity the presumption of such conventional counsel (applicable enough at the ordinary level) might well result in consequences worse than simple “lack of success”. It has to be understood that spiritual principles and religious precepts, even those cherished from long use and universal recommendation are at best optimum advice for the given system of function; at the transition to general 4th-density existence, those precepts and principles most apparently “eternal truths”—as they stem alike from Buddhism and Hinduism, Christianity and Sufism—have to be evaluated against an enlarged context, and modified according to the forms of information “unique” to the higher domains to which consciousness must adapt. The principle to “love one and all alike”, to bestow “blessings upon all beings” and so forth is not subject to abandonment at this stage; we are not to somehow understand that a reversion to hatred and warfare are suddenly “all right” due to the extenuating circumstance that “pure spiritual evil does indeed exist”. Universal Love is and always remains the principle in some proper form; but the specific beaming of the “love-vibe” in the direction of the Orion Crusaders not only possesses the defect of wholly wasted effort; the philosophy informing it tends to contribute to a tremendous misreading of the elements actually involved. And this is no better illustrated than in the Strieber account of the manner in which he was made to feel tremendously guilty for not having obeyed a direct command of his tormentors.
In Transformation he recounts the otherworldly interdiction whereby a “voice” bade him refrain forever from sweets, his one true vice. Addicted as he was, Strieber couldn’t stop, even though the “beings” engineered circumstances so as to bombard him with dire implications. As a result, one evening he is visited by a malevolent presence which he himself—as always—describes best, i.e. as “monstrously ugly, so filthy and dark and sinister. Of course they were demons. They had to be.” Again, “the sense of being infested was powerful and awful. It was as if the whole house were full of filthy, stinking insects the size of tigers.” The entity, rising up beside his bed like a “huge, predatory spider”, places something at his “forehead” (i.e. the Third Eye) and with an electric tingle he is “transported” to a dungeon-like place where his attention is fixed upon a scene of excruciating torture. The victim, a normal-looking though quite naked man, is being whipped to shreds amidst agonized screams by a cowled figure. His “entity” explains to him that “he failed to get you to obey him and now he must bear the consequences”. This disclosure is followed by a very interesting and significant “assurance” that “it isn’t real, Whitty, it isn’t real.” As Strieber reports, such an “admission” did nothing to mollify his horror.
The assurance was indeed an oblique reference to the actual tactic being used by his tormentors; the whole scene, like so much UFO-abduction data, is a projected thought-form. Such thought-forms are generated not in or through our ordinary “3rd-density” plane, but are manufactured in the medium proper to them, i.e. the Astral. The subject, then, is either spirited to the “vibratory frequency” of that density through dissociation of the astral vehicle from the physical, or, as in certain accounts possessing a component of “high strangeness” the 4th-density menstruum is tuned into place by a vertical adjustment and wholesale realignment of the nested “bodies”, in such a way that the subject doesn’t dissociate from the integument of “touch” (and thus, from the physical-electric grid) but rather undergoes the rotation of the coordinates of that grid so that they line up in conductive relation to the informing geometries of astro-etheric patterning which otherwise are obliquely screened— thus affording a direct continuity of perception surcharging the apparently “preserved”, familiar field of physical focus with impossible Whitley-in-Wonderland elements:
The purpose of soothing Strieber with such assurance as to the ultimate unreality of the convincing scene experienced, should be familiar to anyone who’s heard of the torture tactics employed in any good Banana Republic (i.e. those in which the victim is subjected to excruciating pain on the one hand while being simultaneously stroked and reassured on the other, often by the same party). The object is to elicit the full cooperation of the victim under duress, by making him instinctively gravitate toward the implicit salvation extended through the “motherly” touch demonstrated in that schizoid Grasp, feeling some surcease and thus even affectional Gratitude with respect to that one factor in the whole horrible stew that seems to proffer kindness and a relieving recourse.
Indeed, Strieber proves himself the compliant guinea pig; even under the intelligence that it’s all a thought-form, his compassion for the (imagistically dramatized) unsuccessful “bidder” persists, obviously in thorough confusion with his own self-commiseration, so that finally he collapses upon a repentant love for the very roaches that bedevil him. “Again, though, I felt love. Despite all the ugliness and the terrible things that had been done, I found myself longing for them, missing them! How was this possible?”. Again, “I regretted the contempt I had shown for its [the other “reality’s”] needs and its laws and felt a desperate desire to make amends.” “I had felt a pain greater than the pain of punishment. It was the pain of their love….I had the sense that they had on my behalf turned away from perfect love, and that they had done this to help me.” “I suspect that the ugliness I had seen last night was not them, but me. I was so ashamed of myself that I almost retched.”
In this way we may clearly see the baited hook that awaits within a context inclusive of life in the higher densities, with respect to the word of universal-indiscriminate love. The effort to operate such love according to a literal interpretation of the word, is ripe to be employed as a real booby trap for any form of consciousness having as yet no practical grasp of the Whole, and so by virtue of standard habits of identification chronically confounding the Whole and the part (as is the typical pattern of 3rd density mind). Unable to “see” the Whole which nonetheless directly infuses and underscores the negative entities as their very medium, clinging to their foulness like a sweet masking scent, the mind used to dealing only in terms of the representative part is unusually open to making just that identity-equation in which the incidental expression of a Field is presumed to contain that field, or is taken as one-to-one equivalent of the quality belonging to the field as a whole. Conversely, the return of the Love-value toward any being of such a field isolated out of the context of the Whole, tends—to the mind chronically focused only on the complex relation of part to psychological part and never on the Whole itself—to be but a yielding or block submission to the other’s requirements as means of overcoming the resistance of “identification”.
To the Highest Bidder
Should there remain a reluctance to grasp this point, or some desire to conserve the liberal-humanistic proposal to which Strieber often turns (i.e., to call such things truly Negative or Evil is “simplistic”, you know) we need merely resort to the Ra material once more, wherein we find a passage—first published in 1981, don’t forget—that anticipates Strieber’s account by years and furnishes a framework before the fact which not only fits the Strieber-entities’ behaviors like a key a lock but gives us a needed perspective of evaluation.
On page 21 [Session 55] of Volume III, The Law Of One, the Ra entity characterizes a prototypical tactic of the Orion Crusaders, that of “bidding”; “bidding” is described in such a way as to make it clear that Strieber’s experience represents a concrete instance of the phenomenon, a factual case history with which to footnote Ra’s words. “Bidding” is a contest of will, serviceable in determining the pecking order of the social-memory-complex of the Crusaders, and in rendering the general run of consciousness enslaved through intimidated compliance of its own free will. It is a command of obedience, precisely such as that issued without explanation against Strieber’s lust for sweets. Its sole purpose is to bend the subject into accepting the command, the actual content of the order being largely beside the point (other than the degree of difficulty involved for the subject according to the strength of the tendency to be overcome, a factor which redounds to the polarization of the “bidder”). We find further that any failure to exact conformance in “bidding” results in a proportional loss of negative polarity to the aggressor, a situation which the entity must then attempt to rectify. In this way we see that, in terms of the higher densities not only are “thoughts things”, but the metaphorical relations characterizing the order as which beings functionally interact possess distinct energy values, and have a direct bearing on degree and intensity of polarization-alignment. To possess a legion of “servants” in these subtle regions is an actual nourishment to the centers and systems, a kind of psychic “food-chain pyramid”.
At this point a pure bolt of recognition should allay any further doubts, either of the type which question the factuality of Strieber’s accounts or the kind that equivocate as to the actual nature of the entities involved; for we find the Strieber entity virtually paraphrasing the earlier Ra recitation re the modus operandi that identifies the Negative polarity, in its suggestion that the failure to exact obedience on the part of the imagized “Crusader” bears punishable consequence. Not only is this “narration” of the visualized scene an adequate admission of the terms involved, for those with prior knowledge as is supplied by the Ra description; it is a continuing illustration of the way in which the Negative polarity extorts the desired obedience—and thus soul capture—through manipulation of the Love value belonging impartially to the psychic plane through which this largely takes place.
What then are we to “do” with the counsel of the general Teaching thus far delivered to this density, such as that of “love thine enemy?” How are we to interpret such a precept or indeed understand the principle of Love altogether, when its application seems so susceptible to a sticky, spider web ambush from planes of reality actually eager with invitation for so innocent an approach?
Love Was All He Said
At this point it’s important to understand the way in which a spiritual truth is necessarily reflected into zones of adaptation. Principles applicable to one density of consciousness aren’t just outmoded and put aside upon “stepping up” to another density. It may however be necessary to identify the form in which such a principle is recast, according to requirements of a density nearer in direct spirit to the Truth which it expresses. In this sense, from a perspective that may be characterized as “4th density”, the appropriate disposition of the Love-nature which serves it most perfectly on all occasions is that of whole-hearted Love of the “One Infinite Creator”.
We may of course readily recognize this “higher truth”; it is none other than the Shema of Israel, which Jesus identified with the heart of the Law. If then the first spiritual precept to “Love God with all your heart” is a familiar reference of 3rd density consciousness, how is it that such a framework possesses it? And how does such a reference coexist with corollary commandments and encomiums, i.e. precisely those such as “love thine enemies”, “love your neighbor as yourself”, etc.?
The general rule, “Love God”, reaches alike to every density, for it is in its essential character the spontaneous outpouring of the Truth of Life apart from any formulation or customized tailoring. Thus the 3rd density freely receives it, just as any other, regardless the functional state of understanding. At the 3rd-stage level of egoic self-reference, such a rule incarnates through abstract conceptual distortions practically screening direct cognition of that Whole which is the real referent of the rule. In order that such a rule be functionally operative and lived according to its spirit, a level of mind-body integration and harmony is required that abuts the threshold integrity of a “4th density”; for such a (minimal) state of unitive coherence is able to surpass identified allegiance to the ego-divisive verbal mind, thereby settling into congruence with the actual holism that informs it as reflective expression of the Holism of the Creator.
It is through such holistic grasp that the undivided Love of the Creator is received as the constitutor of all centrist reference, so that such a composed self-center may in full awareness ascribe that Love-value to its true Giver, faithfully returning the Gift.
Where—as in the ordinary state of 3rd-density consciousness—this cannot be done directly owing to the prohibitively low level of mind-body integration and harmony, Compassion-incarnate adjusts the means to suit the available material. Thus a relatively indirect instruction is necessarily given, one which compassionately takes into consideration the actual compass of comprehension practically available.
The “holism” of Self and Creator is functionally masked at 3rd density level by the compulsive allegiance of the (potential) whole-value of identity in one-to-one equations of identification with the preferential profile of the ego-inventory, thus the advice to “love thine enemy” may be understood as very practical strategy meant to extend the I.D. beyond its contractile, lopsided self-enclosure into a more unified resolution recognizably encompassing polar terms as facets of a single Being. It’s suited strictly to a level of functioning which is not able to proceed directly from a grasp of the Whole, but must attempt to approach the Whole through comparative inference.
Such a compromise adaptation of the primary rule, while it may serve well enough at its level as a rehearsal, shows precisely why it was a stop-gap measure progressively less viable in very practical ways as consciousness approaches the plane at which the Law operates through self-evident values and direct qualities.
When the general level is raised at which the Love-teaching is received, the relative inefficiency of its previous level of reception becomes apparent, the possible pitfalls and menial snares of that reflected, stepped-down viewpoint emerge like serpents and spiders from the rocks when the open invitation to take on the higher responsibility of a more profound level of existence at the same time discloses conditions revealing the defect of lesser adaptations, and making mortal the dangers of persisting to identify a whole and indivisible Value with fragmentary phases or preferred parts.
When (in adaptation to the more direct Influence of Truth infusing the higher densities) we learn the whole-being expression of Love as that spontaneous Love of the One Infinite Creator, the very essence of Love tends to emanate impersonally as a global value, spreading without effort or special address to all quarters where it’s received or not according to the specific will of every form. In this way its Presence doesn’t become confused with the conditional presence of the myriad beings “positive” or “negative”. Nor does its Presence become confounded with the mechanics of “give and take”, which are all relative identifications of the mind (look again at what befalls Strieber in his mental efforts to specify the love-value he felt lurking in the worst of circumstances, notice the manner—common to the complex of 3rd-stage psychology that accepts the teaching of Love according to its lights—in which he winds the skein of complicated love-strands through a conceptual miasma of “owes” and “oughts”, bewildered by just those ordinary terms of psychic bookkeeping).
The Portrait of Dorian’s Grays
When considering the extraordinary deception woven about the circumstances of such abductions as Strieber’s, we may wonder how it is that the entities involved don’t simply use their obvious powers of illusion to mask their awful character, for in all the captious play-of-mirrors produced in relation to the principle of love, the actual ferocity and venomous character of the Crusaders seems to spring irrepressibly forward, thus in a sense almost requiring a tremendous expenditure of energy and time toward bullying some interpretation that belies the painfully obvious. The answer to this, also shows succinctly the real nature of the phenomenon with which we are dealing.
The origin and informing character of these entities is, self-evidently, that of the density corresponding to (what esotericism knows as) the astral plane, and what esotericism knows of the astral plane clearly accounts for the transparency of their basic presentation, which, as we’ve noted, calls for an overlay of psychic subterfuge. The Law governing astral existence, requires the exteriorization of basic character in identifiable symbolic terms. All “form” in its astral origin wears its heart symbolically on its sleeve. It is for this reason that a physical object of apparently neutral character such as a knife, when perceived astrally may distort in dream-fashion into a recognizably malevolent entity, assuming a distinct persona in the manner of anthropomorphized objects in a Silly Symphony.
The Strieber entities give the overpowering impression of malignancy, because that is their character; and by extending their essentially psychic, 4th-density being into physically perceptible range, they are merely spreading the compulsive “honesty” of the self-symbolizing Astral medium into twilight structures visible to eyes of flesh. (Such spontaneous, symbolic exteriorization functioning much like the Portrait of Dorian Gray, becomes progressively less reliable as an index of “moral valuation” the higher up the scale of densities we ascend; thus the luminous, angelic white entity Strieber encounters as a kind of harbinger of death in Transformation does not qualify by appearance as a positive manifestation. It is of the Negative along with all the others, but it is a relatively rare presence in the corpus of the Strieber account, since it emanates from the 5th density of creative Mind. Thus it represents in its appearance the power to conceive and govern whole patterns of exteriorization. The Ra material discusses just this capacity of the 5th density Negative adepts to assume so fair a shape, and in fact the likelihood is altogether greater that higher-density entities either positive or negative who manifest in more “pleasing” human terms are 5th density beings able to modulate the matter of visible appearance according to inner conceptual requirements, rather than merely being able to regulate it from a point past its primary patterning and projection).
Speaking With Forked Tongue
It is for this reason of direct symbolic disclosure that the Negative hierarchy often finds more efficient means of dissimulation in the channeling phenomenon, for here, there is no direct encounter or condensation to “visible appearance”, but only the medium of the word to be interpreted according to the recipient’s lights. The mode of expression is by that measure indirect and the Negative beings have therefore a greater latitude of deception at their disposal.
Since the Negative is altogether, in one sense, an inverse reflection of the Positive or True Creative Logos, a parallel configuration borrowing all its components by simple reversal and distortion, it proceeds by the method of imitation. It apes the expression of the positive, the more meticulously where it wishes to be mistaken altogether for the positive so as to subvert the message for those who tend to abide by it. Its typical strategy is to adhere so closely to the letter of the positive as to be virtually indistinguishable to all but initiated awareness, installing itself through the rhythmic lull of entrainment so as to catch the “congregation” totally off guard when it diverges slightly or greatly from pattern and so pulls a portion of the positive track along with it.
The voice of the Negative is of course the more ingratiatingly imitative where the inclination of the recipient is already to the positive; a negative receptacle requires no such precaution.
Even in the case of channeling, however, the character of the Astral origin compels the insinuation of a sign, a kind of confessional signature no matter how subtle. Indeed this trait of the communication is often accepted as a device of mockery suited to the character of the source, it is played with as a defiant means of asserting the true identity of the Signal, hiding it in plain symbolic sight in conformance with “astral” requirements.
This law which insists even the physical form exhibit “some sign or characteristic which identifies” the “true essence”, is indeed remarked upon by one such channeled source, the Hilarion Material. Hilarion is an entity identified in both the “Christ” materials of V. Essene and the Ra channelings, as a being of the positive Hierarchy. Thus when we see books on the shelf bearing the Hilarion moniker we automatically respond with a beam of recognition. Hilarion’s “channel” (Maurice B. Cooke) seems decisively predisposed to the Christian stream of positive teaching, so we are not particularly surprised when the second half of The Nature of Reality (which had up to then been a so-so account of “esoteric physics”) breaks into a frenzied description of the imminent apocalypse. Indeed, the book ends with a graphic account of destruction and the final torment of souls as they are beaten to their knees in extortion of a “repentance” and “turning to God” which they’d apparently been reluctant to make even when melting into one another.
This stomach churning peroration was no accident, for in another Hilarion volume, the source proclaims that the structure of the book held been deliberately designed with the “Armageddon” last so as to attract a particular type of “select” readership.
My, What Big Eyes You Have…
With an eye, then, to the Ra account re the way in which the Orions have traditionally sought to subvert the positive messages and meanings of persons or events through emphasizing moods of doom and destruction, making such negativity a central feature of the communication thus deflecting attention into brooding byways of despair, we may turn to the Hilarion account of the existence of Negative Beings (or the Dark Brotherhood, in the terms of this source). According to Hilarion’s account, the Negative is allowed to exist because its minions act in the ultimately helpful and healthy capacity of predators that only decimate the “diseased” ranks, i.e. like wolf attacking the sick or congenitally weak specimens of caribou (Hilarion’s analogy). “The wolf attacks these defective caribou, and would never think of wasting its energy trying to chase or bring down healthy specimens. By weeding out the weaker ones, the wolf ensures that the healthy remains strong.” With this edifying version of Christian Darwinism, we are comforted into the notion of our constitutional safety (considering the readership of such a work to be ipso facto amongst the Elect, an assurance “we” were already given in the gross-out discussion of Armageddon).
This encouraging information hardly tallies with the outright attack which the Orions launch upon the Ra channelers in the very midst of their activity (see books II, III and IV, The Law of One), nor does it square well with what initiated knowledge otherwise knows about the effort of the Negative to attack, discredit or physically eliminate those who are quite positively polarized and in no way “defective” in the arrogant sense that the Hilarion material proposes. It is also more than passingly interesting to note that in the film Wolfen taken from Whitley Strieber’s book of the same name, the behavior of the predatory creatures is rationalized in precisely the same way, i.e. that they are simply weeding out the recrement of mankind thereby ultimately strengthening the total stock (the fact that one of the “good guys” who even subscribes to this interpretation and is in no way depicted as “defective”, is nonetheless wantonly massacred by the creatures, attests to Strieber’s early powers of schizophrenic dissociation, and gives us as well certain cause to look more deeply into the character of the Hilarion idea).
Too Many Plots Spoil the Cooke
When we read on that the Dark Brothers are allowed to “test” a channel such as Cooke (apparently alluding to an early channeling incident that must have been a source of some distress) by making an agreement of exchange with the “White Brotherhood”, each bargaining some “deal” or concession from the other, we are squarely on Donald Trump territory and about as far away from the facts of the polarities and the densities as we can possibly be. (The “Hilarion” rationalization here is almost self-evidently a cover story, meant to assuage Cooke more than anything else; for initiated understanding does recognize that a Negative source, having attached to a positively disposed channel, will push the negative hypothesis into increasingly more overt expressions in order to determine how much the malleability of the subject will yield to directly negative propaganda! Apparently at one point Cooke must have been pushed too far, and this absurd scenario was manufactured to explain the cordially adversarial relations whereby the Positive and Negative players of the higher realms use the channeler’s “inner instrument” like a Borderland parimutuel window).
When we read further along how to identify the interference of the “Dark Brotherhood”, we presently realize we are being disabused of the Seth teaching (although of course that teaching isn’t specifically named due to the punctilious observation of that “Cosmic Law governing the operation of these testing factors”); Hilarion’s objection, revealingly enough, has to do with the “impropriety” of explaining cosmic truths of simultaneity and probability to the anthill focus of physical consciousness, which should be properly stuck with the mea culpa considerations of karmic consequences, thus “Hilarion” neatly pivots us back into proper alignment with all those conventions of cultural conditioning that chronically lock us in place as a mechanical unit of cause and effect, and away from the elastic efficacy of the present poised at the juncture of potential change!
Finally, Hilarion regales us with the assurance that all “galactic observers” within the “region of Earth” are necessarily friendly, contrary to the misleading teachings which would have us believe otherwise. “There is the suggestion that some are distinctly alien and even hostile, and that certain of these beings kidnap humans and kill animal life for experimental purposes”. To disabuse us of this baseless notion, “Hilarion” resorts to no less than the old canard about the inability of any civilization in the galaxy to develop interstellar technology until such time as it decisively overcomes all negative inclination (!). Thus any close encounters, sightings, landings or interactions of a third or fourth kind are necessarily conducted only with the kindliest and most positive of beings.
Flying With Expired License
It is precisely here that those most glaring of contradictions indicative of the channeling phenomenon become inflamed, and virtually force themselves upon our notice…right along with a virtually self-disclosing hypothesis that accounts for them. For the Ra material specifically warns that Confederation sources (with very few exceptions) refrain from any but long-distance exposures, generally only in order to extend the range of mankind’s inquiry toward renewed consideration of the Unknown, and almost never effect that kind of encounter known as “landing”. Landing has become the almost exclusive resort of the Orions, the Negative Beings. Thus, virtually all “close encounters”, reports of abduction etc. are of the manifestly negative type. Despite his composed rationalizations, Strieber’s emotional declarations continue to ring in our cars, and the material gathered into such sources as those of Budd Hopkins, certainly have little of the aura of “good will” about them.
Then just what could this “counsel” of the Hilarion material possibly mean? It seems only too evident from this as well as other “revelations” of the teaching, that the “Hilarion” source conforms to the methodology of the Crusaders as disclosed in the Ra Material, i.e. that of close adherence to the style, thought and content of positive sources so as to sneak in “undercover” as it were, and at the point of greatest vulnerability—when the subject is set at his ease and off guard—pour the venom of disinformation in the audio channel! (We should be interested to know that “false teachers” can be identified by their appearance, whether they’re too fat or too thin, whether they look as if they can be trusted and—oh yes, whether they’ve “ever been hounded through the courts, or banned from any country”—an interesting criterion, considering such an ostensibly “Christian” source. Perhaps the governmental persecution of true Teachers is a phenomenon confined to the old Roman past).
Taking all this together, we may now identify the very emphasized oratory of the Hilarion material on page 26 of Dark Robes, Dark Brothers: “Specifically, by asserting that one should love one’s enemies, Christ presented the single most effective way to overcome the temptations of Earth life and to confound the whisperings of the Dark Brotherhood”. Interesting that of all the possible teachings and enlightening words of the Christ, this material should go out of its way to emphasize the one expression which is most subject, in such a context, to the distortions of 3rd density thinking patterns! For of all the possible teachings that might effectively have been drawn upon, the one which lends itself most readily to the snares of the Negative poachers is precisely this precept, presumed by a mind-body complex insufficiently unified in congruence with the conscious axis to make the necessary 4th-density transference from the psychological structure where such imperatives come to lodge, to direct alignment with the unitive Ground of Being from which love streams naturally in all directions without entrapping concern for “friend or foe”.
I’m Sorry—Do You Have Any Credit Cards?
Finally, there was the case of a student of the initiated teaching who, finding the cover signature on the Hilarion books quite intriguing by virtue of its consistent entwining of the heels of the letters “L” and “A”, decided to apply a Qabala of numbers whereby, lo-and-behold he determined that the deliberately emphasized letters clearly spelt “LA” which in Hebrew means “nothing” or “zero”. Since Zero is alphabetically an “O”, his eyes automatically transposed that letter over the “LA” on the cover signature and, much to his amazement, one of those clever “astral” disclosures sprang forward, of the type that shows the natural compulsion of the medium to reveal its character symbolically (as well as the perverse delight taken by the Negative in coding its identity in plain sight): HI ORION. (Some of the book covers indeed expressly separate the letters H and I from the rest, which are arranged to touch one another so as to group the “LARION” with its entwined L and A in one bundle). Indeed the contents of “Dark Robes” etc. (a book, remember, about the negative beings) pointed to its own clue in declaring that even all physical things bore the symbolic signature of their particular source.
This Is Not the Behavior of an
Ordinary Kitchen Appliance
It is necessary to note that the growing public presence of “negative” literature (i.e. books overtly or unknowingly inspired from spiritually-negative sources) is not just the mild circumstance of a “democratic distribution” of diverse information. The presence of such material is not innocuous, nor is its active component confined to the personal imbibition of content. It is not in the contents alone that such media carry their infectious messages. Everyone reading this review section should take to heart the real lesson contained in the incident reported by Strieber in Transformation, i.e. that of the psychiatrist who upon seeing the cover of the book felt compelled without knowing its contents to purchase it, the next day being greatly surprised to hear a number of patients report dreams of UFO abductions for the very first time. It is revealing that the covers of both Strieber’s books depict the alien countenance of his abductor, for in Communion we learn that the entity actually modeled for Strieber at the interior space of his “third eye”, specifying that it wanted the artist who would transcribe the description to get it right!!
To initiated understanding this clearly shows that the accurately-rendered image was to be used as a kind of talisman, or a material basis for the manifestation of that force-influence to which it corresponded.
Strieber gives vent once or twice in Transformation to the sentiment that, if he really thought the creatures with which he was dealing were negative or harmful he could not in all conscience expose people to what was clearly a powerful and unpredictably commanding influence. He should have held on to that thought. He should have made every effort to penetrate the shallow rationalization by which he “forgives himself for his recalled participation, in youth, as the apparent ringleader of the “children’s circle” whose job it apparently was to lure acquaintances out into the haunted woods of night where presently, amidst the horrified shrieks of many, they would find themselves face to face with something unspeakable.
In addition to Strieber’s books, there is a motion picture of Communion soon to be released, as well as a spate of other movies already primed for the competition that purport to depict true-life alien encounters. These should not be considered ordinary modes of entertainment. They must be understood as vehicles, very potent types of imagistic “talisman” supplying the material basis for a mass manifestation of unprecedented character. We need to listen more closely than ever now, to a channeled source that dates back to 1957: for in The Secret of the Andes we find a corroboration of the Ra source which predates that communication by many years, in which it is specified by name that we are under invasion by the Orion Empire.
It is necessary to understand this for what it is, and not treat it as a removed spectator witnessing another phenomenon of mass entertainment. Everyone is involved, and there are children present. As was indicated, in last month’s review titled Movie and Dream, the Qabalah of Star Wars, motion pictures have a profound correspondence with and influence upon the dream psyche, owing to the structure of the medium. That harbinger of the “Freddie” films, in which there arises an incursion into waking consciousness of the terrible content of dream and nightmare such that they are presently confounded and inextricably entwined, is poised to take place “in reality” the same as it was prefigured on film. In the specific instance of the Strieber books it is very advisable to neither buy nor read them, and this not the expression of some “censorship of content”. There is something else going on altogether, something for which the public, in its wildest dreams, is scarcely prepared. It is advisable that the new films such as Strieber’s dealing with UFO abduction, etc., be given a wide berth, and certainly children should be kept away from them! They are not just “spooky” movies, good for Halloween-type thrills.
This is not an easy month for your reviewer. The decision to advance this discussion and extend such difficult, goblin-ridden counsel has not been made lightly. But the truth should at least be put out, out on the bookstall floor or streetcorner along with every other conceivable kind of information in the endless bid for the ephemeral attention of this place. What people choose to do with it, is a whole other column.
But do it we must, and did. This is the ghostbusters boys, your cover is blown and your time’s at hand.
E.T., go home.

(Since Gong Fu is the principle that sets a work on fire, intensifies it to the degree of boiling, then a 3 or 3½ that has Gong Fu possesses It to the extent that the work, at least in part, exhibits first signs of real kindling; it strikes a genuine spark of combustion, at least in places. If a 3 has no real Gong Fu, it must still have a good degree of technical, intellectual/emotional power.)
** Has no Gong Fu; may have technical or intellectual/emotional magnitude.
* Has no Gong Fu; has little, though possibly some, technical or intellectual/emotional magnitude.
