The FIRST Forbidden Letter

"N. Nominandum" <laborsolis@...> wrote:

Dear Mr. Gardiner,

Allow us to email you. We've been expecting your book for over 19 years know, although we must admit we only knew that it was to be launched during the reign of Pope Benedict. (There is no such thing as a free will/ (Du wirst gethan) Nietzsche.)

Let us just help you a little bit more. With a latin text. Composed in the year 1170 AD.

urbs transrhenana anno DCCXI. pupulus nudus silentio noctis conflagrat. hic incipit labor solis. gloriam olivae expectamus.

And remind you of the two last Latin verses in the list of Maleachi (the Popes). de labore solis followed by gloria olivae. Followed, naturally, because a shining Tree of Life (spine and brain), the olive tree, is the product of 'the work of the sun', as you will know. Trees well hidden for the moment of course.

It is very important that you realize that the Popes are not involved in this. They are only the vehicles in this 'story'.

Now, you will also want to stick to these 16 words in this and no other order: beheading, stone, stone (producing) kundalini, racing to the centre of the earth, and coming back again. The stone, although it's hard to believe, being a real stone, though not a stone like we know it. (Alchemists are not those who write about alchemy, but only those, who produce the stone in their body, which ignites the Kundalini fire).

Now, you will say to yourself: many people claim to have had this kundalini-fire. But you see, they didn't. They were after power, money, followers, whatever. People who produce the stone, and through that stone the fire of resurrection, will never go public.

And this is very important too: if you produce that stone and were consumed and reproduced through that fire, you will achieve individual and physical immortality, and nothing less. Something for the End of Time therefore. Who ever died was not an alchemist and did not produce the stone.

By the way, your man is a gay man. Born on the 17th of January. In possession of that very special balance in microcosmic male and female forces. A balance never possessed by heterosexual men. And your stone is Christ (He who is near me is near the fire, and he who is near the fire is near the Kingdom). Also: 1 Peter 2:4.

You are going to be just in time now to produce your next and last book on the grail.


P.S. That gay man, born on the 17th of January, is not the one who wrote this email. He is the one though who allowed us to write it. This email was sent to you from a country in Europe, not being the country your man of the 17th of January is living.

The SECOND Forbidden Letter

"N. Nominandum" <laborsolis@...> wrote:

Dear Mr. Gardiner and dear Mr. Osborn,

Thank you for you second reply. We are, by the way, four. You can call us the Paris 4 (not playing with you). We have one thing in common: we know the one person who produced in a certain night not to long ago the stone. The grail. The Christ within (I will become like you, more and more, you will become like I more and more ('Jesus')). The production of that stone is not the goal of alchemy, like alchemists say, it's the starting point. It ignites the fire of alchemy. This fire will, after it is tuned down, produce in many year the Kingdom within. (It grows quitte in the way Jesus tells ut it grows; like a plant, in the body, with the full grown chakra's as the flowers in the end)

Then , the Latin was not ours. Furthermore, you say that you are going to write not on the subject of the Grail anymore, but instead, on the subject of esoterics and Gnosis. But that exactly is the field of the Grail. For you see, there is only one nature (physos) and only one metaphysos. Now, you will want to follow us just a little bit more. The endgoal of evolution is alchemy. If you are not writing about alchemy, you are writing either about nothing, or about something unimportant. Alchemy is about deification. It is about 'God' becoming man, and man becoming God. (I have said ye are gods, repeats 'Jezus' the psalmist)

You will remember that 'Jesus' also said: if you produce what is within you, it will save you. But, if you do not produce what is within you, it will destroy you (this unproduced thing is shakti latent).

And a last remark for now: we don't want to be arrogant (you are both two fine men, with fine instinct and born for this goal) but you are going to write about the Grail once more. Because it's in the stars. This is not a threat of course (we can not, nor want to, force you to write a book). But we have read about you, like we said, already 19 years ago. And you can't escape destiny. Remember, there is no such thing as a free will. It is possible of course that our 'book' is wrong, but we don't really think so.

Again, we are not the person who produced the stone. He is the one though who allows us to write you. And we are under under censorship. Naturally. And furthermore you understand that our mother tongue is French. Please excuse mistakes in our English.


The Paris 4.

The THIRD Forbidden Letter

"N. Nominandum" <laborsolis@...> wrote:

Dear Mr. Gardiner, dear Mr. Osborn,

After talking to our 'gay man born on the 17th of January who produced the stone little over 19 years ago now' we decided to mail you a second time this morning (after all, you invited us to post more of our knowledge).

We wrote in earlier mail 'By the way, your man is a gay man' without properly introducing him. We corrected that in the introduction of this mail we believe. Our apologies.

Then, our man is gay, but this is not about a gay agenda or movement. There is nothing wrong with homosexuality, nor with heterosexuality (you may know that the Paris 4 are all heterosexual, and three of us are married). And homosexuality doesn't automatically provide the perfect balance of the microcosmic male and female (so gay's aren't better people, because our man is gay), but heterosexuality can't (provide that balance). That much is true. That balance is needed for the hieros gamos, the alchemical wedding. Without that balance, which, again, only a few homosexuals posess, a safe conduct of the kundalini fire is impossible.

Then, the words 'stone (producing) kundalini' (the 16 words in our first letter) imply the exit of the serpent through the spine. It is driven out by that fire. The lore of India is correct here. We forgot to mention that exit.

Then, we do not 'believe that we have the answer to all', we have the answers to this all.

Then, a general remark of extreme importance: the gospel never took place. We do not know whether a man called Jesus ever lived, it's not important, but the gospel never took place.

Then, you say 'the stone at the centre of the universe, like the Kaaba or the rock on the Mount.' The Kaaba and the Rock are not at the center of the universe. The centre of the universe is in the microcosmos of the human body. The macrocosmos is in the microcosmos, not the other way around (the world is my projection/ the real sun and moon are in you, not out there). The stone (we are allowed to reveal, is a true stone (as we have said earlier), although not like an ordinary stone. It is even pointy and about the size of a child's fist.

Now you will also understand that there is no such thing as a God outside. And there are no such things as good and bad either. (Good I call what I think is in my advantage, bad, what is believd by me to be in my disadvantage (Spinoza)) Religion is bunk. Your God and heaven spell alchemy.

Then, Gnosis and esoterica are the knowledge of the divine spark within. Gnosis and estorica are also heavily polluted by religion and moral.

The Grail is the firestone. The stone that delivers that spark and that starts the kundalini/resurrection-fire. It is most directly revealed in 1Peter 2:4 (often translated with as al living stone, but the Greek reads lithon zoonta (the living stone) and not hoos lithon zoonta (as a living stone). And revealed of course even more in the only German Grailbook (by von Eschenbach): 'by the power of that stone the Phoenix (Kundalini) burns to ashes and the ashes restore him to life again.'

We would appreciate a short reaction on this stuff, before we start to tell you about John the Baptist, Secret Mark and the source of The New Testament.

Again, we mailed you this morning on this email address how we can find your forum on which you publish our mail. We searched on, clicked ouserselves silly on the site itself, but weren't able to find it.

Hoping to hear from you soon,

Yours sincerely,

The Paris 4.

P.S. Our mails are composed in Paris. Then sent to our gay friend and then sent to another country in Europe, recomposed on this email address, and then sent to you from a public computer. We kindly ask you not to publish this email address. We'd be inundated by mail. You understand.

The FOURTH Forbidden Letter

"N. Nominandum" <laborsolis@...> wrote:

Dear Mr. Gardiner, dear Mr. Osborn,

We didn't receive a reply on our last two mails. Bur we are instructed nevertheless to go on sending you our information. Here we go.

The Christian scriptures are a vehicle for alchemy. The source-author is a Greek writer from Egypt who composed two manuscripts with sayings in around 120 BC. These manuscripts are not in our possession. We didn't read them either. We don't know even whether they still exist. Most of the manuscripts is found back in the parables of the fictional character Jesus about the Kingdom of God/Heaven our gay man ensures us. The most 'alchemical' Christian scripture is the gospel according to Thomas (the olive tree as the tree of life though is only found in Philip). The churches weren't able to destroy this copy found in the 20th century. It was secured. Destroy, because genuine alchemy (' Woe the soul that depends on the flesh, woe the flesh that depends on the soul' Jesus in Thomas) leaves no room for after-life- theology. That fundament of "churchianity" and false hope.

We informed you that alchemy is about personal physical immortality, and nothing less (like a prolonged life or good health). (Hence: woe the soul and woe the flesh.) To achieve this immortality a dragon has to be killed. A serpent. (drakon is Greek for serpent.) The 'blood' from that dragon is the future inner body elixir which will grow the inner light-body as it is so beautifully called. This lightbody is 'nothing' but a fortification of the subtle-body, with which every human being is already born. Once it is strong enough (Jesus repeats this several times) it will take over the flesh-body. (That's the harvest.) And it is called the lightbody, because from that moment on ones body emits light too (the bridal clothes). Remember that Jesus ensures us that 'your whole inner body will be filled with light'.

On we go to Secret Mark. We simply recommend it in combination with (public) Mark chapter 14, verse 51. Note the word naked (gymnos). Why is it used? And why is it Mark takes the effort to write in verse 54 about Peter who just left the scene 'and warmed himself at the fire'? (It was apparently cold that night, but our fictional young man was nevertheless motivated to wear but a linnen cloth cast about his naked body.) And we recommend John 13:23, 19:26 and 27. Why is John speaking about a disciple whom Jesus loved? Didn't he love the others? Naturally, but a certain disciple in a special way. It is not impossible that other homo-erotic parts were removed by the church in the dark ages. But these weren't probably recognized as homo-erotic. They are too subtle. We repeat here that homosexuality is a conditio sine qua non for alchemy.

On we go to John the Baptist. How did he die? You will say: by beheading. But he didn't. How do we know? Because a) the one and only person who talks about being baptized in fire (kundalini) is the one and only who is beheaded (alchemy) and b) the one and only historian who wrote about John the Baptist (and has no reason to lie of course), Josephus, writes in his Antiquities, XVIII, caput 5: what he (Herod) did against John, who was called the Baptist: for Herod slew him.

A word here and now too on Simon bar Jona who saw his name changed into Peter. Peter comes from the Greek petra, meaning rock. A rock is not a stone (alchemy), but the next best thing to a stone if you want to encode alchemy. A stone is lithos in Greek, but you can't make a name with lithos. He holds the key's to heaven (the kundalini stone). Christ's real church consists of the people baptized in fire through that stone. So this congregation is in a way built upon that (kundalini) stone. Peter is also called Caephas. And that means three things in aramaic: head (referring to the alchemical beheading), stone and rock.

For you will remember too that in certain grail-lore heads are taken of and replaced by other heads. Now, we are not talking about the head of flesh to be taken of. That would be lethal ofcourse. It is the microcosmic, subtle head, interwoven in the head of flesh that is taken of and replaced after the fire by a new subtle head (the Christ).

We are closing for today. If you search in alchemy, at one point you will find the expression V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (= visit the centre of the earth and by rectification you will find the stone). The alchemist- writers are quite mistaking here. We recommend our 16 words from our first mail: first the stone is produced, then the journey to the inner earth starts. The stone is found in the body, not in the earth. Mind you, everything is, in the end, found in the body. If an alchemist travels through the earth, he's doing that in the microcosmos of the body. Remember what we said: the real sun and moon (and earth) are in you. Not outside. And this explains why our friend could still hear common street noise outside his apartment when he traveled to the centre of the earth over 19 years ago with tremendous speed.

It will be more than clear to you now that nothing 'Christian' has happened in the year 33. Let alone something crucial. The acts of Jesus are as fictional as the acts of Parzival.

We will send you one more email. An email that will conclude our contribution to your knowledge of 'the Kundalini-stone and the End of Time'. After that you will not hear from us anymore.

We greet you,

Yours truly,

The Paris 4.


We still were not able to reach your Forum. Very tiresome. We get page expired from 3 countries if we click on the Forum-button. We kindly ask you again how we can reach the mail you published.

The FIFTH Forbidden Letter

"N. Nominandum" <laborsolis@...> wrote:

The Kundalini-stone, Quantum Physics and the End of Time

Dear Mr. Gardiner, dear Mr. Osborn,

As promised here our last mail, being our fifth and last letter.

It is repeatedly said by Jesus that 'if you have faith like a mustard seed' and 'if you make the two one' or if 'two make peace in the same house' (the unification of the two opposites through alchemy), in the end you will be omnipotent ('nothing will be impossible to you'). You could 'move a mountain'. This moving of the mountain is often related to faith (being one in the sense that you do not doubt anymore), but this is mere pollution of the gospel. Becoming omnipotent has nothing to do with faith. It has got everything to do with 'the work of the sun', a.k.a the magnum opus.

You said in a mail that we are all connected. And we are. But even in a more dramatic way most people know. We know now through quantum physics (the realm of the microcosmic sub-atomic world, the fundament of the so called real, atomic world), that distance may well exist in the atomic Einstein world, but that it doesn't exist in the sub- atomic quanta-world.

In the Einstein-world there is one chief dirty word: simultaneous. The laws of that world dictate that every action takes time. No simultaneous reaction is therefore possible. But in the sub-atomic world, not energy is passed on to cause a reaction, but information.

But what has this got to do with the promised omnipotence to the 'sons of man' you will ask? How can anyone move a mountain, unless he posesses at least the energetic equivalent of the mountain itself? He can't of course. Unless he's deified. Because in that case you don't need energy to do your thing, all you need is to pass information through your will. You 'reprogram' the mountain, that is, the mountain in your projection (the world is my projection). For the real mountain is in the sub-atomic world, not in the atomic.

And if you are deified (the harvest) you will be able to mess with your projector.

By the way, don't take our word for it. Take the word of Mr.. Wang and Mr.. Bedford instead.

Phenomena in sub-atomic physics such as Bell's Theorem (everything that was once connected will stay connected for ever) and the Einstein Podolsky Rosen non-locality differences have led to significant rethinking of the relationship between consciousness and reality (the world is my projection (our remark)). Such thinking forms the basis for modern conceptions of magic and paranormal (psi) phenomena, in that the human mind may have a significant, but non- physical effect on material reality. Or, as Wang and Bedford put it (1985): "one of the non-mechanical aspects of causation may be will and intention."
[Solorion at ]

But back to 'making peace in one house'. What is meant here?

Jesus says: do not go the broad and easy way to death. Go instead the dark, narrow and dangerous way. (Mind you, this is not very precisely put. People are invited to the Grail. You cannot invite yourself. If you are invited you will go that road, if not, you never will.)

But again, what does he mean?

You know that there is a beast inside all of us. That beast has to be let out in a certain crisis in alchemy. It is raw psychic energy (libido). And exactly that dark energy is used to build up the lightbody. It is extremely dangerous and leaves you with a pandemonium of aggression-impulses for several months( and other complaints), and in weaker form for several years (the energy is consumed more and more and the impulses gradually disappear). To safely conduct this energy you need an extraordinary strong mind (he who will overcome). This process is sometimes called the night of the soul. It is absolute horror the first two weeks. Horror still the next three months and quite a burden for about three years, till the whole beast is consumed and transformed into lightbody and chakra's (well hidden then still). Now you will, by the way, also understand what is meant by the words: happy he who has (that still hidden lightbody), for he shall receive (omnipotence and immortality through the lightbody). He who has not that lightbody will lose even what he thinks is his. exempla sunt odiosa.

Now you will also understand the parable in which Jesus talks of a garden in which a tree is planted (the spine and brain in kundalini- fire as the tree of life). But no fruits are produced for years (the night of the soul is part two of alchemy, and doesn't occur untill after many years (after the kundalini/resurrection)). The owner wants to cut down the tree, but his servant says: let me just shake the tree, and give water and fertilizer. Perhaps then the fruit will come. That is 'the night of the soul'. He say's, if the fruit is still not coming then, you can always cut down the tree. This, of course, will not happen. It's a parable, not an analogy. Whatever the grail starts, the grail will finish. The night of the soul is by te way wonderfully described in the Parzival of van Eschenbach in the story about the Chastel Marveille (Wondercastle) where Parzival has to fight a lion.

'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.' (Jesus in Thomas) (It's the theme of the Sphinx).

Goodbye to you Mr. Gardiner, and goodbye to you Mr. Osborn.

All the best to you and your loved ones.

From a bumpy Paris on November 9 2005,

The Paris 4.


Did we destroy your past and future books on Gnosis, the Grail and esoterics, or did we not? Do they look like child's stories, or not? They do, n'est ce pas? But don't despair. After all, we have great confidence in you and you have in posession the real truth behind the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life now. And which other author can say that? For, if we wouldn't have mailed you, you'd still be in the dark. And stayed without a doubt in that dark all your life. So don't be depressed: a crisis that is not for the better, is the most rare thing on earth (Persian saying).

Do not miss Part 2: PS to The Forbidden Letters

PS by Philip Gardiner

"The Paris 4 contacted me and asked me to listen to their viewpoints on the Grail legend. I get this quite a lot as you may understand. I recently spent time in a foreign land on the trail of information given to me by a very real secret society and this will become part of a new book.

I listened to the information the Paris 4 were sending, and I thoroughly enjoyed their interpretation, whilst having reservations on why they wished to remain secret. I can still only assume it may have something to do with the gay aspect spoken of in their work or maybe they just want to remain private - either way I respect their judgement as I would for anybody else.

The information came thick and fast and I was quite enjoying, if not totally agreeing, with what I was reading. Then something strange happened. Almost everybody on my own forum started being hacked. My emails and the Paris 4's emails were intercepted and we seemingly started saying bad things against each other. I closed up and refused to listen to anymore. Then we both found that somebody had been messing with our emails. Some people on my forum also had the same thing and eventually we all managed to get filters and god knows what else to stop it.

Next I contacted, or they contact me - can't remember and don't care - the Paris 4. We sorted it out and we actually found that we quite liked each other and so carried on. The next set of their "letters" have now been posted on your site and of course are there for people to read and take from them what they will.

I am, though, sending this because I believe a little balance needs bringing in and because I am getting a few emails asking me what my own opinion is on the information the Paris 4 are supplying. Well, my own opinion is that I cannot agree with all I read and much of it is already in the public domain anyhow. Other extensive parts I agree with completely. That said, their research is complex and their insight into the "internal" world of the mind, that of somebody who has obviously experienced such things. I do have issues with the kundalini that I will be releasing in the future once a paper that myself and a leading psychologist have prepared is peer reviewed, but until that point I would only say to people that the kundalini can be a truly enlightening thing or a terrible thing - just like Catholicism or cults or communism or anything else we tie our hopes, dreams and lives to. This opinion is, I know, very controversial, but then I have never been afraid of controversy.

What seems to be happening is a spread of these Letters and the so-called secrets they hold, which if proven correct isn't a bad thing and if incorrect then at least they are out in the open for people to make up their own minds. I am firmly of the opinion (because I believe in very little) that the information from the Paris 4 is a great starting point for discussion as we have seen across the net. I think it has inspired people to "think" and thats good. I think my contact in the Paris 4 is a gentleman and a scholar and that he has only true and good intentions and I can fully relate to that.

For me, I am evading the kundalini and inner "fire" from now on because I have researched it to death and our new "paper" is my final word (unless something else crops up). My future is looking very strange for me actually as I am currently hacking out 3 tv documentaries and a reality tv show that I have been asked to put together. I am about to go off and film for a new Channel 4 doc too on secret societies and then its back to New York for more chat shows before the Da Vinci Code comes out. Added to that I have just finished 2 new books which should be out next year. So, as you can probably tell, the Forbidden Letters, the Paris 4 and myself are at an end of our discussions and correspondence, as I simply do not have time to follow it up and I think they were nearly at an end anyhow. I would suggest that this is somebody else's role now not mine.

My best to all the good people who read this wonderful website, my warmest wishes and thanks to the Paris 4 and especially my contact (who I can't name), especially as they have given me such an amazing amount of undeserving publicity!

May truth, honour, justice, compassion and above all love be your guides.

Philip Gardiner, 2006."

I also have a new site,, set up to answer some of the issues being raised by the Paris 4 and other things...

* * *

Note: The Paris 4 have requested the following to be added in to the PS:

We have one little request though. It is not clearly stated in your PS that is was us who proposed to stop the contact because we felt everything has been said. This is so important, because from the PS as published now people think we might have more information, and we don't.
