Fascinating confirmation...

... of some of Jake Kotze's early videos here, as an Israeli academic argues that Moses was under the influence of etheogens during the events recorded in Genesis and Exodus. Interestingly, Benny Shanon first put himself through similar experiences in an attempt to verify his theories- which sounds like a splendid excuse for a good mash-up, if ever I heard one. (Matthew Delooze, conspiracy researcher from Burnley, Lancashire, is presently in Columbia, I believe, doing the same thing. Does he know there's a war about to break out in the region, I wonder?)

Of great interest to me is Shanon's explanation for the transformation of the rod of Aaron- Moses's brother- into a snake. According to a bullet-point summary in today's Daily Mail, 'Objects changing into snakes are a common feature of hallucinations'; a fact which Icke, and others, have used to support the reptilian thesis. Aaron's Rod, indeed, much like the Grail, has caused no end of mischief in its own right; with numerous researchers indulging in the same sort of Boys Own-materialist fantasies of Graham Phillips et al in seeking to 'track it down.' In extreme cases, like that of David Shayler, such an exceptionally phallic approach to profundity can result in a kind of psychosis: Shayler remains convinced that an an anagram allegedly inscribed upon the rod demonstrates the validity of his claims to be 'the last incarnation of the Holy Ghost... or the Yeshua or Jesus Spirit.'

I have no particular squabble with the nature of his boasts; he isn't the first man to decide that he's divine and certainly won't be the last; but to base that understanding upon a long-lost artefact belonging to a Jewish patriarch, whilst simulataneously issuing fulminations against 'the Zionist enemy' strikes me as contradictory, to say the least.

I have had the Rod on my mind for a few days now, ever since the uncovering of the 'punishment room' (or ritual chamber) in the former 'care home' of Haut de Garenne in Jersey. The island region in which these gruesome finds were made is called St Helier- which happens also to be the name of a neighbourhood very close to my own: the beautifully-named (if not exactly beautiful) Rose Hill in the London borough of Merton. Helier, the patron saint of Jersey, was a French-Belgian ascetic of the sixth century AD, whose legend is highly significant. Associated, in particular, with healing- particularly of the skin and eyes- one of the early centres of Helier devotion was in the evocative department of Seine-Maritime in northern France.

Having spent several weeks engaged in punitive community service in nearby Morden, I have had reason, almost daily, to walk through one of the saint's few remaining English outposts- the St Helier estate in south London; discovering in the process, one of the most esoteric-looking modern buildings I have ever seen. Whilst its present function, I believe, is as a care home for disabled adults, its unusual design- and the presence of what appears to be a representation of Aaron's Rod on one of its brick cornices- suggests it may once have been either a synagogue, or, more likely, a Masonic lodge.

I discovered a similar motif on what was evidently a Freemasonic memorial to a member of a prominent Dunstable family, in the Priory Church of St Peter in the town. (A former Augustinian priory located at the intersection of Watling Street and the Icknield Way, and precisely in the path of the Michael ley line.) There is a great deal more to say about Helier and these symbols, but, in the meantime, your thoughts are welcomed.

That IS fascinating. In my early twenties, I and some friends had popped some acid and were parked in a parking lot adjacent to a club, waiting to come down a little before we went inside. There was a large brick building adjacent to the lot - with it's blank brick wall facing us - a blank canvas - so to speak. As we watched, the bricks began to move and then to form themselves into geometric patterns, and finally, into writhing, intertwining serpents. I remember feeling somewhat relieved that the dragons remained on the wall.

Thanks Michael... Great story! You might want to obtain a copy of The Cosmic Serpent by Jeremy Narby, which may shed more light on your experience.

Back in fine form.
Out of interest I checked out St Heliers Bay, Auckland, a suburb that was originally called Glen Orchard but a name change was suggested by a Major Walmsley to Saint Heliers Bay because of its resemblance to the Bay of St Heliers, on Jersey.
I'll try & take a mosey there on the weekend with camera & see if there's anything to see.

Hi Alex, yes, please do go see what you can find. Psychic questing always turns up interesting surprises. I would very much to hear the results.

Thanks for your comment... I should have some more updates on here over the next couple of days, whilst I prepare the material for my next BTB post. So not so lazy, after all, then... though for some reason I like the new name.

The synchro-scene has changed a lot in the last month or so, and my own situation seems to reflect that. Adapt and survive...



ATB,
Ben

E.O. Wilson, the famous biologist, talks about images encoded on our own DNA -epigenetic images - on this book Consilience, that is about the quest for the unity of knowledge. Please look for this book Ben!

And, yes serpents images are bursted thanks to enteogens, but why not by this, that I think appears from time to time on every region on Earth since eons:

Maybe they are just some kind of technologies of control, using Foucault´s deep insight...

I have been more ambiguous lately calling Moses/Aaron (Akhenaton?) Stargate openers (Ancient Interior Space Astronauts?). Entheogens like mushrooms and the blue Lilly (Thoth's Rod/caducues?) are still up for debate in this regard..
Thanks for the heads up Ben!

Great material here Ben...

A few years ago, me and a young lady had taken some acid and suchlike, as was our norm at the weekends.

As we walked along a tree lined suburban pathway, for some reason unknown, we started shouting up to a tree: "Mr Tree Man Mr Tree Man, we can see you".

Astonishingly, eventually, a darkish (blyton-swarthy) and bearded chap leapt from the branches and scurried away.

We could never work out if subconsciously, we had felt his presence or, he had somehow appeared, perhaps not tangibly.

It still remains a mystery.

cheers

Altered states can trick the mind into seeing all kinds of things. You don’t even need psychotropic drugs. Just try pressing on your eyes, and in moments, see all the cool patterns that emerge. You’ll even start to hear stuff – that part I can’t even explain.
