Beloved gnostic brothers and sisters, on this Christmas of 1967, it is urgent that we all very judiciously study and analyze this tremendous moment in which we are living.
It is indeed impossible to deny that we presently live in moments of global crisis; in the history of our Aryan root race, there have never been such terrible moments. [Editor's Note: “‘Unprecedented’ 65 million people displaced by war and persecution in 2015: The number of people displaced from their homes due to conflict and persecution last year  exceeded 60 million for the first time in United Nations history, a tally greater than the population of the United Kingdom, or of Canada, Australia and New Zealand combined, says a new report released on World Refugee Day today... Distressingly, children made up an astonishing 51 per cent of the world’s refugees in 2015, with many separated from their parents or travelling alone...” —The United Nations, 20 June 2016]
Woes and weeping are heard everywhere; executions are occurring the world over; unhappy people remember their beloved relatives with supreme anguish as they waste the last moments of their life in hard labor camps; widows with children who die of starvation, etc.
The entire Earth is filled with armies and wars; rumors of wars are heard everywhere.
The present chaos is awful; nonetheless, the tyrants, while seated on their blasphemous thrones, uselessly intend to establish a “New Order” based upon blood and drugs.
Paris, as a great harlot, continues wallowing in its filthy bed of pleasures. London has become a new Sodom; it even intends to establish the legal bond of matrimony between homosexuals. The United States of America has fallen into a collective madness, because they have not only destroyed other countries, but moreover, they are also destroying their own. China, the venerable China of Confucius and Lao-Tse, has fallen as a prostitute in the arms of Marxism-Leninism. China has imported a corrupted doctrine from the Western world; nonetheless, they have declared themselves “enemies of the West.”
The Third World War is inevitable, because the ones who planned and performed the First and Second World Wars are already working very actively in order to make the Third World War a reality. The Third World War will be millions of times more horrible than the two former World Wars.
Any sense of pity has disappeared. Today, it is considered a luxury to have a heart of stone, a flint stone heart.
Many schools and colleges teach their pupils that charity is weakness and that they must never give alms. This is how the students become perverse and cruel while sitting at their desks in school.
The moral epidemic of the so-called “rebels without a cause” fell upon the entire humanity after the Second World War; these rebels are the children of the “New Age” who, without God and without law, go around organizing gangs. Everywhere and anywhere, they go about killing, hurting, raping, getting drunk, etc., and the governments cannot control them. The gravest part of these “rebels without a cause” is their state of absolute moral irresponsibility. When they are taken in front of the tribunals, they do not know why they have killed, why they have hurt others, and worst of all is that they do not even care to know why.
The sublime world of art... has reached the maximum degree of degeneration. The temple of art has been converted into a whorehouse; it has become a brothel where homosexuals, drug addicts, alcoholics, harlots, assassins, thieves, etc., search for refuge.
Human corruption is so great that even homicide has become an art form. [Editor's Note: “By the time the average U.S. child starts elementary school [ie. age five or six] he or she will have seen 8,000 murders and 100,000 acts of violence on TV.” —New Scientist, 2007. Note that violence in media has dramatically increased since 2007.] Moreover, the breaking point of madness is the fact that there presently exist organizations for assassins and an abundant amount of literature on the art of assassination.
All branches of present day art encourage lust, alcoholism, drugs, homosexuality, blood, horror…
In this day and age, classical composers are seen with infinite despise. To play Beethoven or Mozart in any modern festivity causes the general withdrawal of the guests.
The four blasphemous clowns (the Beatles) from the degenerated music of England were endowed with the mark of distinction by the Queen of that Empire. The idiotic multitudes even kissed the ground that they walked upon.
Everywhere there are abundant assassinations, robberies, infanticides, matricides, parricides, uxoricides, assaults, rapes, genocides, prostitution, hatred, vengeance, sorcery, merchants of souls and merchants of bodies, greed, violence, envy, pride, arrogance, gluttony, love of luxury, slander, etc.
Indeed, the Aryan root race is a rotten fruit, a fruit that will fall from the Tree of Life by the weight of its own rottenness.
The students of esotericism are filled with infinite horror when they examine the history of Atlantis in the Akashic records of Nature; however, the Atlanteans had religion, in that sense they were less degenerated than the henchmen of Marxism-Leninism who hate any religious principle to death.
The initiates are filled with an unutterable psychic terror when they remember that woman with the seductive and malignant beauty, the Queen Katebet of the gloomy destinies from ancient Atlantis; with sovereignty, she governed the South States and the powerful City of the Gates of Gold of that submerged continent.
Indeed, even in the Borgia and Medici’s family history there is no perversity like that of Queen Katebet. She captivated with her malignant beauty and necromancy. She fascinated and seduced princes and kings with her enchantments. In her honor, many maidens and children were immolated to the tenebrous entities of the inner underworlds.
In those times, the Atlantean sacerdotal medicine discovered what in this day and age we would scientifically call human opotherapy, that is, the infusion of glandular juices from the pituitary, thyroid, adrenaline, etc., to sick and caducous organisms. The priest-physicians utilized not only the chemistry of the endocrine glands as hormones and juices, but moreover, they also utilized the hyper-chemistry of those glands, or the psychic, vital fluids of the chakras or magnetic centers of the human organism, which are intimately related with the endocrine centers.
After having taken their immolated victims away from the sacrificial stones, the cadavers were transferred to certain secret chambers where the priest-physicians extracted the precious endocrine glands that were so indispensable in the preservation of the fatal Queen’s body. Her youthful beauty with all of her enchantments lasted for many centuries.
The most frightening of all of this was the moment in which the priests—after having secretly extracted the glands from the cadaver—would toss the rest of the cadaver to the fanatical and corrupted crowds who would devour it hungrily; this is how the Atlantean populace became anthropophagi.
When we reflect upon all of these things, we feel terrified, horrified; however, all of these barbaric acts are minor, even ridiculous, when compared with the atrocities of the First and Second World Wars. Atlantean barbarity seems comical when compared with the monstrous explosion of the atomic bomb in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
All of the Atlantean barbarities are insignificant when we compare them to the gas chambers where millions of men, women, children, and elders were stripped of their clothing and died with the most frightening desperation.
We felt horrified by Atlantean bestiality, but the bombarding of the martyred city of London, the concentration camps, the wall-shootings, the hangings, the cities destroyed by criminal bombs, sicknesses, hunger, and desperation, were all millions of times worse.
Never in the history of the centuries was such great perversity felt than that of this caducous and degenerated Aryan root race.
The breaking point of all of this evilness is that now the Tower of Babel has been lifted in order to conquer the infinite space. If that which is divine does not interfere with what we call “the conquest of outer space,” then in a short time, the terrestrial hordes will assault Mars, Venus, Mercury, etc., and all of the crimes (such as those performed by Hernan Cortes in Mexico or by Pizarro in Peru) will be repeated again on those inhabited planets.
If that which has no name, if that which is the reality, the divine, does not interfere now, then That will become an accomplice of the crime.
This Aryan humanity is symbolized in the Book of Revelation as the great human harlot, a woman dressed in purple and scarlet colors, whose number is 666 [See Revelation 13:18]. So, in the world of absurdity, there is nothing more absurd than to suppose, for at least a brief moment, that this great human harlot would conquer other inhabited planets with her famous rockets and would crown herself queen and sovereign of the infinite space.
Therefore, the new catastrophe that will doom this Aryan root race is totally just and absolutely indispensable.
