Many cases of witchcraft are frequently presented before the tribunals. Regarding witchcraft cases, the authorities laugh about them. They concretely judge common crimes. They completely exclude stories regarding warlocks, santeros, sorcerers, or whatever they want to call them.
The warlocks or black magicians, etc., already know that the authorities do not believe in their tenebrous science. When the mentally obsessed, the clients, the sorcerers, etc., have to answer in front of the authorities, they prefer to talk concretely about the exterior aspect of the crime, since they know by their own experience that the authorities do not believe in witchcraft, sorcery, etc.
Internally, the warlocks consider the authorities as people who know very much. Yet, the warlocks know that regarding witchcraft or matters of sorcery, the authorities are absolutely ignorant. This is the concept that the honest sorcerers have about the authorities, sorcerers who sincerely believe in their religion and in the power and efficacy of their rites.
There are also false sorcerers who only live by extortion; they exploit their neighbors’ credulity. These false sorcerers are extortionists.
We are going to study the honest sorcerers.
We do not deny that the mentalists, the ones who perform obsession, the godfather, the incubus, etc., are ignorant people. It is logical that ignorance is the mother of all crimes. Yet, this problem cannot be resolved with corrective educational treatments that are based on strictly conventional culture. Neither are these problems resolved with loss of liberty nor with forced labor.
The sorcerer continues to be a sorcerer in jail or in exile, with conventional culture or without it. The sorcerer states, “These people know a lot, yet regarding my science, they do not know anything. My science is superior.”
To that end, the instructive and corrective conventional systems, as well as the systems of penalization, are useless in order to reform sorcerers. Those ignorant people can only be reformed with a superior spiritual culture. Those cases can only be treated with corrective educational treatments based on Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, yogic philosophy, etc. Professors on these matters should be available with special reformatories in order to treat these cases.
Witchcraft is behind thirty percent of common crimes. However, the delinquents keep silence, because they know that the judges are skeptical and totally ignorant about matters of witchcraft.
Indeed, the judges have a conventional intellectual culture. Yet, they do not know anything about the science of sorcerers. Only the study of Gnosis, Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, yogic philosophy, etc., can change the skepticism of the judges. This way, they will move more towards the populace’s soul.
Forensic psychiatry can tremendously expand with these studies in order to profoundly explore the causa causorum of any crime.
The responsibility of the criminal facing the tribunals has extremely deep roots, so deep that not even the psychoanalysis of Freud suspects it.
We must leave aside mental laziness and those prejudices that make us utter phrases like, “Oh but what would people say if I study this?” or “What would people say if I educate myself in this?” We must study Gnosis, Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, yogic philosophy, etc.
Occult wisdom is the fundamental depth of any science.
The great German doctor Arnold Krumm-Heller narrates in his Rosicrucian Novel the case of a warlock who was performing sorcery on a wretched woman. He was performing his sorcery through the medium of a used piece of cloth from his victim. The unhappy woman became deranged—or better said, the warlock made her insane. When Dr. Krumm-Heller described the case to the authorities, they mocked him. Of course, this is why, based on this type of authoritative skepticism, the delinquents from sorcery can commit the most horrible crimes. The terrestrial law does not affect the warlocks, since they always shelter themselves under the skepticism of the judges. Warlocks are pleased with the skepticism of the judges, since their skepticism is convenient for them. Yet, woe to them if the judges were to know about witchcraft.
A Russian scientist invented an electronic brain that is capable of registering the mental force of a human being. If someone gives a command to that electronic device, then the apparatus collects his cerebral radiations. Then, that device places in movement other different machines through its very complicated and difficult mechanism. This is how the reality of the force of thought has already been demonstrated. Once, scientists laughed at statements about mental force; yet now, in Russia, instead of pressing automatic buttons to move machines, they are starting to utilize mental force.
We do not deny that the mentalist, the one who obsesses, the obsessed one, the client, and the succubus are oligophrenic. They are ignorant fanatics who, while in their state of delirium, commit horrendous crimes. Yet, the reality is that such people are utilizing mental force that is already demonstrated by that scientific Russian device.
Mental waves travel throughout space. Shortly, the scientists will invent antennas that will be capable of capturing mental waves using apparatuses similar to the radio that will translate mental waves into sound. At that time, no one will conceal his thoughts anymore. Nevertheless, in this day and age there are already apparatuses capable of measuring mental waves. Scientists measure mental waves based on micro-voltage.
Therefore, the hour has arrived in which the judges have to stop laughing and start studying.
Victor Hugo said:
“The one who laughs at what he does not know is an ignoramus who walks the path of idiocy.”
Let us look at hypnotism, for instance. Until a relatively short time ago, it seemed to everyone that hypnotism was related with sorcerers and skulls amidst foggy nights. In this day and age, hypnotism is already officially accepted by medical science in order to heal the sick. There are clinics with scientific devices for hypnotism.
There are also sorcerers who utilize hypnotism in order to perform their criminal deeds. This is already established in the penal code of many countries. A sorcerer can give a person a mental suggestion during a hypnotic trance. The sorcerer can mentally suggest to a passive person and command him to execute a crime. Later on, that person, without knowing where or why, goes and executes the command given by the sorcerer. This is how horrendous and frightful crimes have been committed.
The sorcerers also use distinct “voodoo dolls” that they place at the doors of their victims. When the authorities get their hands on one of those famous “voodoo dolls,” then the proverbial skeptical laugh of the judges is provoked. People already know the skepticism of the judges. This is why the accused ones prefer to hide those famous “voodoo dolls.” The “voodoo dolls” can be made with special powders, water, toasted corn, feathers, dolls, pieces of cloth with menstrual blood, etc.
The force of thought lies in the depth of these famous “voodoo dolls.” The imagination of the sorcerer is exalted with the “voodoo dolls.” This is how he projects cerebral waves that are capable of damaging and killing his hated victims.
It so happens that many of those victims of witchcraft and “voodoo dolls” fall into deliriums of persecution; they feel threatened by the paranormal forces of the sorcerer. If the victim is hysteric and impulsive, he can then commit a hysterical homicide, an act of hysteria.
Oftentimes, these types of criminals (who in their depth are victims) suffer “hysterical epileptic” attacks.
Huxley, the materialistic scientist, accepted that many types of living beings populate the ether (the ultra). The dialectic materialists reject the ether; they state that there are only electromagnetic energies; however, this is only a new name that is given to the ether.
Within a drop of water there are millions of microbes; for them, the drop is infinite.
There are beasts and monsters within the “ultra-special” that the human being cannot perceive. People cannot perceive them due to the distinct modifications of matter. Metaphysics and dialectical materialism know nothing about this. As the ultra-micrometer can register up to the ten thousandth part of a millimeter, the clairvoyant can perceive these types and forms of life (even if the materialists laugh about it).
An English doctor invented a lens with which the aura, the irradiation of the Astral body, can be seen.
Soon, there will be lenses that will see the fourth dimension. Then scholastic metaphysics and dialectical materialism will be ludicrous before the solemn verdict of public Consciousness.
At that time through those lenses we will see the monsters and larvae that obsess the minds of delinquents.
If the judges laugh about it, then they also have to laugh at microbes, and renounce the microscope and vaccinations.
Logic invites us to consider that if there are physical microbes that damage the physical body, there must also be mental microbes—larvae, incubae, succubae, basilisks, dragons, etc.—that damage the mind.
In a short time these types of mental microbes will be visible to the whole world. Yesterday, the microscope was invented in order to see physical microbes. Tomorrow, the ultra-microscope will be invented in order to see microbes from the ultra-world.
If there are physical epidemics, there are also moral epidemics, that is to say, immoral waves of suicide, thievery, violence, etc.. This can be confirmed in cities.
Microbes are the agents of those epidemics, in both cases. Logic is logic.
The demon-possessed ones from Jatibonico in which a whole family suffered the most strange and diverse mental disturbances, and the case of “Mama Coleta” mentioned in chapter sixteen of this book, are concrete cases of psychic obsession. These are cases of moral epidemics.
The active agents of those epidemics are from the ultra, namely “trolls, larvae, incubae, evil spirits,” etc. These types of names stir resistance in the skeptical materialist. Let us not argue about terminology. If you like, baptize these living things from the ultra with the name “ultra-sensory microbes.” I think this name will satisfy the skeptical materialists. Most of the time, we human beings argue over terminology. So let us agree on the former term, and thereafter let us continue analyzing the subject.
In their psychological depth, the skeptical materialists have a trauma. The cause of that trauma is Roman Catholic dogma. They were disappointed by the Roman sect; thus, the outcome of their disappointment was a psychological trauma. They are enemies of Hegel. Now, anything that smells of spirituality, unconsciously seems to these skeptical materialists as being from the Roman Catholic Church. This is their psychological trauma.
So, you skeptical materialists, let us inform you (in order for you to hear to us aside from your traumatic and sick “I”) that we are neither Catholics nor materialists. Yes, listen, we are neither Catholics nor materialists, we are Gnostics . Gnosis signifies knowledge, wisdom.
Then let us study the ultra-sensory microbes.
The sorcerer Barrueta mentally obsessed the unhappy clairvoyant medium woman of chapter sixteen. What? Does the term “sorcerer” bother you? Are you afraid to believe in sorcerers? Well then, be afraid also of microbes. What if we named the sorcerers microbes and the microbes sorcerers? It is just a matter of terminology, right? Then, why do we have to argue?
Let us analyze without preconceptions. The medium and the whole family of the “Mama Coleta” case were obsessed by “evil spirits, trolls, sorcerers,” etc., ultra-sensory microbes that will become visible within a short time, when optics advance towards the ultra.
As a leper’s body is invaded by the bacterium of Hansen, and a person with tuberculosis has his lungs invaded by the bacterium of Kock, likewise ultra-sensory microbes can obsess the mind and direct a human being to commit a crime.
There are two types of epidemics and two types of sicknesses, namely the physical and the psychic.
Everything is reduced to the atom. The atom is a trio of matter, energy, and Consciousness. We need to investigate how the atomic intelligences behave.
If no one in the epoch of Pasteur accepted microbes, if they laughed at that sage because he was disinfecting surgical instruments, why is it so strange then that they laugh about us, the Gnostics , because we accept the existence of ultra-sensory microbes? These are just things of this epoch! Yet, when the science of optics advances, then they will be our best defenders. This is how the course of history has always been.
The famous “voodoo dolls” from sorcerers are contaminated poisonous substances. Those substances are true ultra-microbe-carriers that can sensibly infect the organism of their victims and can lead them towards dementia and death. Even if the medical science of this century ignores this, later it will know it.
The sorcerers’ “voodoo dolls” are very dangerous, bacterium-carrier substances.
A psychic epidemic was the causa causorum of the “Mama Coleta” case.
Jails are filled with delinquents who are mentally sick. The ultra-sensory microbes make the mind sick and conduce the human being to crime.
Millions of delinquents feel themselves to be innocent, and there is still no mental prophylactic for them, or offices for mental health.
In this day and age, people speak abundantly about physical culture, yet institutes for psychic culture are more necessary now than ever.
We admit to the existence of air currents that are truly carriers of infectious bacteria, yet we ignore the existence of mental currents that are transmitters of ultra-sensory microbes, capable of damaging, causing illness, and even killing their victims.
The “Mama Coleta” case is related with a mental infection transmitted by the mental currents of a sorcerer. His victims fell into jail and death; yet he, the secret assassin, remained immune. He was not caught; he saved himself by hiding behind the skepticism of the judges.
Cases of psychic obsession must be studied by forensic psychiatry.
Jails are filled with mentally sick people. There is no doctor for those wretched ones. Thousand of delinquents are innocent.
Forensic psychiatry needs to be expanded.
There is a specific antidote for each sickness.
Sorcerers are not reformed with external culture. No sick person is cured with an incompatible remedy. We cannot cure typhus with remedies for measles. Each sickness needs its special antidote. Sorcerers are reformed with their special antidote. The antidote for sorcerers is the esoteric wisdom, namely: Gnosis, Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, yogic philosophy, etc.
It is obvious that when a delinquent is condemned, the evidence of the “corpus delicti” is required. It is also necessary to justify the “corpus delicti” in accordance with all the legal forms established by the codex of penal processes.
A human being cannot be condemned for the crime of black magic if the evidence of the “corpus delicti” is not known. Neither can he be condemned if the “corpus delicti” has not been justified in accordance with all the legal forms established by the codex of penal processes.
When a citizen is accused of the crime of black magic, when a citizen is accused as being a black magician, the “corpus delicti” must exist, and that “corpus delicti” must have been rightly justified in accordance with the penal processes.
When a citizen is accused, when a citizen is designated a black magician without the “corpus delicti,” without criminal antecedents, without judicial evidences, then the accuser falls into the crime of calumny and defamation of character.
People who dedicate themselves to the studies of esotericism, Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, Gnosis, yogic philosophy, etc., constantly fall into the crimes of calumny, public slander, defamation of character, etc. Those people must take care of their tongue, because frequently they fall into the crimes of calumny, public slander, defamation of character, etc. To asseverate that such a fellow or such a lady is a black magician is a crime of calumny, public slander, and defamation of character. The spiritual brothers and sisters should learn how to control their tongues.
For “by their fruits you will know them.” Each person is known through his deeds. A citizen cannot be a black magician without criminal antecedents.
A lady and a gentleman who accomplish their duties as mother or father and pay their debts, have never killed, stolen, slandered, etc., cannot be black magicians.
The skeptics of materialism laugh about all of these things. Therefore, leaving aside the fanaticism of the materialistic sect, we, the Gnostics , say the following: “The one who laughs at what he does not know is an ignoramus who walks the path of idiocy.” Therefore, when a scientist mocks Asian Yoga and esoteric Buddhism, he becomes an ignoramus who walks the path of idiocy.
Thanks to the practical science of the West, technical advancement has been achieved as well as a revolution in forensic psychiatry. The practical, experimental, and demonstrative science of the West allows us to place physical matter at our service.
The practical, experimental, and demonstrative science of Asian Yoga allows us to awaken the senses of internal perception. We can see, hear, touch, and feel the fourth dimension.When a human being expands his senses of perception, he then receives new scientific information that increases his wisdom. The esoteric science is the fundamental basis of nature.
When Western and Asian science are completely joined, then the human being will reach a new integral and total culture, free of fanatical sectarianism.
The science of criminology is stagnant in this day and age because of the superstitions of the fanatical materialistic sect.
