On the Forbidden Letters - by Peter Wong

Part 1 - Introduction


'Briggs and Peat [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F._David_Peat ] propose that we are at this very moment living in an Alice-in-Wonderland universe where each part is in fact the whole, where a scientist conducting an experiment is himself the experiment, and even inanimate objects contain consciousness.'[Simon & Schuster on the cover of 'Looking Glass Universe'] 


'According to a recent report in Brain/Mind Bulletin, a new method of photography has disclosed a bizarre holographic phenomenon in plants. When a hole or square is cut out of a leaf, inside the hole a ghostly miniature image of the entire leaf appears.'[1984:255/emphasis added] 


'People easily imagine an uncreated God. But don't ask them to imagine matter in the same way. Why is that?'[Anna Frey] 


'... a universe which is itself creative.'[1984:270] 


'A wild theory by Frank Barr, a research physician at the California Institute for the Study of Consciousness, proposes that the light-sensitive molecule melanin found throughout the body may be a "holographic film" in the brain. David Bohm said that matter is a kind of condensed or "frozen light." Now, Barr says melanin, which is the most primitive universal pigment in living systems and which is involved in a huge number of biochemical interactions, directs the activities of other molecules, and, in effect, "eats" light and converts it into other forms of energy in order to maintain and evolve matter. It is, he claims, a kind of slowed down light molecule at the crossroads between biological matter and energy." In the brain, he believes, melanin acts as a "black hole" which makes the holographic patterns possible.'[1984:264/emphasis added] 


'We're allowed to call God light, but not to call light God.'[Anna Frey] 


'The ancient Greeks said that "all is light." But how can this be?' [M. Hasler] 


'A photon is a discrete bundle (or quantum) of electromagnetic (or light) energy. Photons are always in motion and, in a vacuum, have a constant speed of light to all observers, at the vacuum speed of light of c = 2.998 x 108 m/s.'[about.com]

According to Hommersen 'light has a purely teleological character,' meaning it exhibits purpose in nature. It is also found in the form of biophotons in all living cells, although nobody knows how these photons are being produced. Boswinkel thinks it is certain that they are messengers or bosons. According to at least one theory it is the DNA emitting the photons and their source 'is inside the double helix.'[Boswinkel] This all may suggest in my opinion that from the Big Bang on everything was somehow heading for man and his Lightbody.  

It was Erich Jantsch [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_Jantsch ] who first asked: 'If the principle of evolution is (merely) adaptation, then why did organisms steadily grow more complex?' If, Jantsch continues, 'the meaning of evolution was in adaptation and increasing the chances for survival, the development of more complex organisms would have been meaningless, or even a mistake.'[emphasis added]   

Jantsch furthermore believed 'that the primary law and purpose of evolution is openness, an expanding holistic, mulitidimensional web of processes built in all directions by the macro-micro-evolution of systems.' The goal of this web is, what he called 'the extraordinary intensification of life.'[1984:199] At the same time Jantsch 'wasn't suggesting that a co-evolutionary universe is a universe unfolding according to some foreordained, deterministic, or God-given plan.'[1984:200] Because God-given plans, especially if they would be alchemical in nature, are anathema of course in this our age of scientism. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientism ]  

Now, when we see the trial and error movement in nature, and thereby in evolution, a movement so frequently ending in blind alleys, we may indeed, like most scientists, 'be tempted to dismiss the idea that the world process has any real direction.'[1974:125] However, the divine tendency shows, as I believe, 'not in protection from failure, but in preservation of the successes in an additive fashion.'[1974:126] Successes ultimately enabling chakra's, alchemical decapitation or the raising of such a thing like a 'metalic like wheel'[The Paris 4] in the human head of an alchemist.   

Part 2  

'The Archeus, the creative center of the earth, is hermaphroditic.'[Carl Jung]

[ The first emblem from the Philosophia Reformata *) ]  

*) Between two mountains a naked woman with a Moon head stands nursing a solar headed child at her breast (moon-sun-unification/Wong). Her body is enveloped in the globe of the Earth. [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Daniel_Mylius 

In their first and fourth Forbidden Letters to Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn, the Paris 4 tell us that the alchemist has to descend into the earth. We don't know exactly why that is, but the alchemist apparently has to sit through some kind of katabasis into the earth. 

At the same time the real earth, according to Paris, is 'not outside, but in you.'[The Paris 4] The world in time-space is hence my projection. This explains, according to the authors of those letters, why their alchemist could descend into the earth 'with tremendous speed,' and at the same time hear 'common street noise outside his apartment.'[The Paris 4] This all reminded me of a curious remark by Beatrice Bruteau in her 1974 book Evolution Toward Divinity in which she discussed the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brihadaranyaka_Upanishad ] On page 62 of that book she writes:  

'It is said that the "shining, immortal person" who is in the earth and in one's own body is Atman (i.e. the Self/Wong), is Brahman, is all.'[emphasis added]

Part 3  

'The Egyptian priests had a sacred code of their own founded on very different principles from those which characterized the popular religion, and it was studiously concealed from the curiosity of the public by wrapping it up in characters the meaning and power of which were only known to themselves.'[Von Mosheim]

[ The Gizeh-lion with human head, called the Sphinx ]

In their fifth Forbidden Letter the Paris 4 tell us that the alchemist has to undergo a Night of the Soul. In that Night his 'beast is let out.' A beast representing libido: psychic energy. Energy used to 'build up the Lightbody.'[The Paris 4] That night is described by Paris as 'absolute horror the first two weeks, horror still the next three months, and quite a burden for (still) about three years.' According to Paris that Night is described in logon 7 of the Gospel of Thomas, the most alchemical of all Gospels:  

'Happy the lion who is eaten by a man, because that lion will become a man. But woe the man that is eaten by the lion, for he will become a lion.'   

And then Paris says: 

'It's the theme of the Sphinx.'  

In spite of the information in the response-article on the Forbidden Letters linking Gizeh more than convincingly to alchemy, I long considered this last remark on the Sphinx a bit far fetched. But page 323 of Volume I of Gerald Massey's Natural Genesis won me over. On that page Massey gives this:  

'The lion, another symbol of fire, was a type of terror. To signify the Terrible, says the Hor-Apollo, the Egyptians made use of the Lion.'[1992:323]  

Part 4 - Quotes

[ Prometheus being punished ]  


'The Paris 4 tell us that Stone is 'pointy and about the size of a child's fist.'

That it ignites the resurrectional fire of Kundalini and 'that it is produced about where the liver is.' This last remark by the Paris 4 reminded me of a remark by Georges Dumezil.

Dumezil conjectured that the Titan Prometheus stole not the chemical fire for our ovens, but the fire of immortality. Zeus then punished him for this by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle (central bird in Alchemy representing Spirit/Winter) ate his liver every day, only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.'[Jos Winter on the Forbidden Letters]  


'Hesiod [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hesiod ] knew that the Tree and the Rock involved great mysteries. In the Theogony the singer being bidden to sing of the race of the immortals asks why he should begin by telling tales concerning the Sacred Tree or the Rock?'[Gerald Massey]  


'Homer speaks of the Rock 'from which man has sprung.'[Gerald Massey]  


'Tell me thy lineage, and whence thou art, for thou dost not spring from the Ancient Tree, nor from the Rock.'[Odyssey, 19:163]  


'b) The stone is produced about where the liver is. The stone ignites the Kundalini fire (the fire can actually be heard) and starts to move about, increasingly violently. Fire getting stronger. Arms and legs break into pieces.

c) The snake is driven out (through the spine). Our friend doesn't know where it went. Up the spine, but after that: no clue.'[The Paris 4/emphasis added]  


'The commonly accepted interpretation is that the Djed represents the spinal column of Osiris and the Source of the Fire of Life.'[John Ivimy, 1974:27]  


'Stone-Head is the name of the Serpent that guards the sixth of the Seven Halls of Osiris.'[Gerald Massey]  


'Thus the name Jesus can be traced back to Ju, the Coming One, and Su, the Child of Either Sex (i.e. the hermaphrodite/Wong).'[Gerald Massey]  


'Our gay man is, as we wrote earlier, Anfortas too. Meaning that he has that mysterious pain in his left testicle. That pain started a few months before his Kundalini. It is described by von Eschenbach in his Parzival. Especcialy the part about the wound getting cold as ice is correct (there is no visible wound on our gay man though).'[The Paris 4/emphasis added]  


'A root like that of the word Christ has many meanings. One of these is to be found in Karu for the Stone, one form of which is Karu the testis.'[Gerald Massey]


'Suppose it to be true that Christ was to be called a Stone.'[Trypho]  


'Tantrism appears to have originated in some region outside the north-west borders of India, and first came to that country as an oral tradition. In about the eight century the teachings began to appear in written form.'[Benjamin Walker]  


'The left-hand-path of Tantrism represents the nether side of the Eastern esoteric tradition, and belongs to a wider cultural stream. It is neither Hindu, nor Buddhist, but represents a religious undercurrent with sources anterior to these religions.'[Benjamin Walker]
