On the Forbidden Letters - by Sandra Milten

Part 1

'The end of the world has for its foundation Alchemy.'[Jay Weidner and Vincent Bridges]

'Chilaism is a Gnostic conception of the Christian Last Judgement in which a new existence, a spiritual reality, supercedes our flawed common reality at the extreme end of time. Many scholars (see Pagels and Couliano) consider Chilaism to be the most sophisticated of the many 1st century AD eschatological perspectives.

The Egyptian origin of this concept suggested to us the antiquity of its insight. Following this thread, we found evidence that Alchemy, as we have known it historically, is nothing more than a demonstration of the physics at work in the galactic core [which resides in our microcosm, according to the Paris 4/Milten]. The true inner core of Alchemy appears in this light as the ability to apply the physics of creation to the task of personal immortality.' [Jay Weidner and Vincent Bridges/emphasis added]

[ The Ankh - cross ]  

The Ankh, or Key of Life, was the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "eternal life"  - a triliteral sign for the consonants:

Ayin [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayin]
Nun [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nun_(letter)]
Ha [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E1%B8%AA%C4%81%CA%BC ]

The origin of the symbol remains a mystery to Egyptologists, and no single hypothesis has yet been accepted widely. One of the earliest suggestions is that of Thomas Inman, first published in 1869: 

'[It] is by Egyptologists called the symbol of life. It is also called the 'handled cross,' or crux ansata. It represents the male triad and the female unit, under a decent form. There are few symbols more commonly met with in Egyptian art. In some remarkable sculptures, where the sun's rays are represented as terminating in hands, the offerings which these bring are many a crux ansata, emblematic of the truth that a fruitful union is a gift from the deity.'[Inman] 

Egyptian academics, in particular those at the University of Cairo, aver though that...  

'... the ankh has been over-interpreted and that it is representative of the pivotal role of the Nile in the country. The oval head is said to represent the Nile delta, with the vertical mark representing the path of the river and the East and West arms representing the two sides of the country and their unification.'[Wikipedia]  

But in what way is this all relevant to the Forbidden Letters? Well, the authors of those Letters suggest, pointing to the Prophecy of the Popes [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophecy_of_the_Popes ], that the world as we know it must somehow seize to exist and be transformed within the biological lifetime of their alchemist. Because in section 13 of part 2 of their Letters they write:  

'October 2000 : the night of the Soul starts. November 2001 : the lightbody starts to grow. Springs 2005 : The lightbody is already very strong. Pope John Paul dies. The bulk of the Work of the Sun is performed during his reign 'of the work of the sun'/ 'de labore solis'.

Ratzinger then becomes Pope. The last pope, and he has the slogan: gloria olivae (the glory of the olive tree: the Tree of Life (spine and brain)). So gloria olivae: the sons of God revealed with the becoming visible of the lightbody. The harvest ("if everything is strong enough, you will have your harvest").

There is an extra Pope, Petrus Romanus, in the list of Maleachi, but he is not clearly identified as a pope. We don't know how to solve this Petrus Romanus problem. Because surely, history as we know it (and that includes churchianity without a doubt) shall stop after the revelation of the sons of God. Not?'[The Paris 4/verbatim]


[ Gloria Olivae ]

This part attracted many followers of 2012-theories, suggesting that the Forbidden Letters were somehow connected to that year 2012. This all in spite of the fact of course that, as Calleman had already stressed, the...

'...December 21 2012 date is based on the unproven belief that the (26.000) precessional cycle actually means something for human evolution.'[Calleman/2009] According to that writer...

'...no one advocating this end date seems to have even bothered to try to prove this basic assumption. Moreover, while there is extensive evidence that the Maya based prophecy and prediction on shifts between baktuns, katuns, tuns etc, not a single ancient Mayan text mentions the 26,000 year precessional cycle. Based on nothing more than belief, a culture has subsequently emerged around the December 21, 2012 date, since it serves as an ideal projection screen for fantasies, fears and hopes, rather than something that can be proven and understood scientifically based on the patterns of the Mayan calendar.'[Ibid.]

Wikipedia too maintains that scholars of various stripes...

'... have disputed the idea that a catastrophe will happen in 2012, suggesting that predictions of impending doom are found neither in classic Maya accounts nor in contemporary science. Mainstream Mayanist scholars argue that the idea that the Long Count calendar "ends" in 2012 misrepresents Maya history. To the modern Maya, 2012 is largely irrelevant, and classic Maya sources on the subject are scarce and contradictory, suggesting that there was little if any universal agreement among them about what, if anything, the date might mean. At the same time, astronomers and other scientists have rejected the apocalyptic forecasts, on the grounds that the anticipated events are precluded by astronomical observations, or are unsubstantiated by the predictions that have been generated from these findings.'[Wikipedia]

In the meantime it was overwhelmingly established in the many response-articles on the Forbidden Letters that the Egyptian priests had amazing knowledge of Alchemy, that End-Time-Art. *)

Knowledge they clearly tried to hide from the public. They...

'... 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.'[Fernando da Silva on the Forbidden Leters] So could for instance their Ankh, that sign for Eternal Life, point to 2012? In this way for instance:

We will know in a few years from now whether the maker of this video was being a little bit too imaginative, or not. Because the ancient Egyptians were not familiar with our 1, 2 and 0, let alone our Gregorian Calendar [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar  ]. But then again, they officially didn't know the metric system either, a system so frequently popping up in the Great Pyramid's math, and supposedly built that pyramid nonetheless (see the epilogue of http://www.world-mysteries.com/PhilipGardiner/forbidden_letters_49.htm  ]).

Part 2

[ St. Peter's Basilica - Rome (transept) ]

In the original Latin of the Prophecy of the Popes, dear reader at World Mysteries, the last motto reads:

"In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit.
Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves in multis tribulationibus:
quibus transactis civitas septicollis diruetur,
et Iudex tremendus iudicabit populum suum.
Finis."[emphasis added]

This is usually translated into English as:

"During the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, the seat will be occupied by
Peter the Roman, who will feed his sheep in many tribulations:
and when these things are finished, the seven-hilled city will be destroyed,
and the formidable Judge will judge his people.
The End."[emphasis added]

As an ex-Catholic I was intrigued by the words populum suum (his people) here. Because it is utterly unbiblical to suggest that Christ, the Living Stone, would only judge his people, meaning Christians. According to the Gospel he would judge everybody. So why his people here? And who are they? Homosexuals only?

Part 3

'The Inner Spiritual Man is called a Stone.'[Cooper Oakley]

'For the Redeemer is, in the view of the alchemists, the inner spritual man.'[Hippolytus, Elenchos, VII]

In his January 2008 response-article on the Forbidden Letters at World Mysteries, Emile de Beauregard points out that once the body of the alchemist is purified, its union...

'... can take place with the astral body whereby the Enochdianus emerges, the celestial man.'[de Beauregard]

This man has to grow. It is called the inner alchemist by the Paris 4. Once that inner alchemist takes over the vessel, meaning DNA-man, that vessel will be transformed instantly according to Alchemy. Surprisingly enough such a tranformation is well known in the medical world too. In chapter 5 of his 1985 book After Life, Colin Wilson points out that in cases of mutiple personality the personality emerging can change physical qualities. Christine Sizemore for example, a well known case, was allergic...

'.... to nylon, but the moment her alter-ego took over, the nylon rash disappeared. She was (also) nearsighted; but her alter-ego could see perfectly without glasses. On one occasion, when she was under anaesthetic, her alter-ego took over, and was totally unaffected by the anaesthetic. (...) So the body may be an instrument that responds to the demands of the personality. (....) This in turn suggests, that when a person is bent and decrepit and feeble, it is the personality that is bent and decrepit.'[Wilson] Wilson then continues, if another personality could take over...

'... the body might be instantly transformed.'[Wilson/emphasis mine]

Part 4

The Great Pyramid, ladies and gentlemen, was originally...

'... encased in highly polished, smooth white limestone and capped, according to legend, by a perfect pyramid of black stone, probably onyx. Covering an area of 22 acres the white limestone casing was removed by an Arab sultan in AD 1356 in order to build mosques and fortresses in nearby Cairo. The King's Chamber is built of blocks of solid red granite (weighing as much as 50 tons) that were transported by still-unknown means from the quarries of Aswan 600 miles to the south. Within the chamber sits a large, lidless coffer of dark black granite estimated to weigh more than three tons.'[sacredsites.com:passim]

And the lower casing of the Great Pyramid was originally of red granite too.

So we have three colours popping up in the Great Pyramid: red, black and white. And exactly those three colours represent the three chief-phases in the Great Work: rubedo (red), albedo (white) and nigredo (black). But this is not all: that Pyramid is of course situated in Gizeh and Gizeh had a wall that was called 'the wall of the crow.' [ see http://www.aeraweb.org/lost_city_woc.asp ] And the caput corvi (the head of the crow) is a phase in the Great Work too:

'Corvus (crow or raven) or caput corvi (ravens head) is the traditional name for the nigredo (nox, melancholia, etc.). It can also, as pars pro toto, mean a capital thing or principle, as for instance the caput mortuum, which originally meant the head of the black Osiris, but later Mercurius Philosophorum, who undergoes death and resurrection and transformation into an incorruptible state. Thus the anonymous author of the novum lumen chemicum exclaims: O our heaven! O our water and our Mercurius! O dead head or dregs of our sea! . . . . And these are the epithets of the bird of Hermes, which never rests. This bird of Hermes is the raven, of which it is said: And know that the head of the art is the raven, who flies without wings in the blackness of the night and the brightness of the day. He is a restless, unsleeping spirit, our aerial and volatile stone,a being of contradictory nature.'[Jung/emphasis added]

And hermetic (< Hermes) is the same as alchemical.
