1974: Is Howard Hughes Dead and Buried Off a Greek Island?

BY MAE BRUSSELL AND STEPHANIE CARUANA (c) 1974 A noted theorist on conspiracies, a contributing editor, and an informer named Tiger Eye bring us an unlikely tale. Or is it? Playgirl Magazine, December 1974 Howard Hughes is dead,” said Tiger Eye. “He died on Tenos, a Greek island, on April 16, 1971. His coffin was lowered into the sea the next day, off the coast of Tenos. “Lots of people know, they just don’t talk about it. It’s called the Golden Silence — omerta.” Reference: a front-page article in Midnight, a Canadian newspaper, dated October 18, 1971, showing two photographs. In one, a feeble-looking man is seated in a wheelchair, his head covered with what appears to be a bandage or surgical cap. He is attended by two men and a woman, who, according to Midnight, “bears a startling resemblance to Jackie Kennedy Onassis.” In the second snapshot, the […] Read More

2005: Procession and the Golden Age: How Much Did the Ancients Know?

Dateline: Wednesday, September 14, 2005 By: WALTER CRUTTENDEN By: Archaeoastronomer and Author In 1901, divers working off the Greek island of Antikythera found the remains of a 2,000-year-old clocklike mechanism. Now in the Greek National Archaeological Museum, the extraordinary find is a complex assembly of twenty or more precision gears designed to compute the motions of the Sun, Moon, and planets. Nothing comparable is known from ancient scientific texts, and from a traditional historic point of view, such a mechanism should not have existed for at least another thousand years. The discovery of the Antikythera Device is equivalent to finding a supercomputer on a farm in the 18th century. Archaeological finds that upset our current understanding of history are growing increasingly common. The incredible discovery of six pyramids in Caral, Peru, is a case in point. These structures that surround a huge plaza and circular kivas (no one knows […] Read More

2000: WINGED BEINGS

Stone glyph s portray them as coming from the skies. Other beings with wings are depicted in ancient texts, hieroglyphs, and beautiful Egyptian cave paintings.  For the most part, these beings look human other than the fact that they have wings.  Wings represent transcendence. DRAGONS Winged being from mythology. Supposedly they breathed fire. There are many pages on the net about them but none that connected for me to link to.   HARPIES In earlier versions of Greek myth, Harpies were described as beautiful, winged maidens. Later they became winged monsters with the face of an ugly old woman and equipped with crooked, sharp talons. They are represented as carrying off persons to the underworld and inflicting punishment or tormenting them. Those persons were never seen again. The Harpies were driven away by Cailas Zetes, the Boreads, and since then they lived on the Strophades. Originally, Harpies were probably the personification of storm winds. They are Aello […] Read More

1996: Atlantis: New Hypothesis

by Viatcheslav Koudriavtsev ———————————————————————— FROM THE AUTHOR This is the third edition of my paper. The first one was sent as a brochure “Returning to the Enigma of Plato’s Atlantis” to Ancient History Departments of some Universities and to the Geographical Societies of a number of countries in June 1995. The magazine version of it has come out in the May 1996 issue of “Vokrug Sveta” (“Around the World”, Magazine of Travels, Adventures, and SF) – a kind of Russian “National Geographic”. The second one was published in some newsgroups and mailing lists in February – March 1996. In the present edition, I am trying to provide answers to most of the questions I was asked after those publications. Besides, I have since found some materials illustrating some of my suggestions. I would like to apologise for some prolixity of the introduction and maybe the slightly simplified style of […] Read More

A Signal of Danger

    Initiates are sure to come into the company of the gods. – SOCRATES in the Phaedo In the first number of the Revue Theosophique in the initial portion of the fine lecture of our brother and colleague, the erudite Correspondent-Secretary of the T.S. Hermes, we read in the footnote (fn. 2, p. 23 ):     We designate under the term Initiate every seeker in the possession of the elementary principles of the Occult Science. One must beware lest he confuse this term with that of Adept, which indicates the highest degree of elevation to which the initiate may attain. We have in Europe many Initiates. I do not think that there exist any adepts as in the Orient. Foreign to the genius of the French language, not even having at hand a dictionary of etymology, it is impossible for me to say if this double definition is authorized in French […] Read More

A Note On Eliphas Lévi

[To the Editor of “The Theosophist.”] Madam, – Since you have published a posthumous letter of my master and beloved friend, the late Éliphas Lévi, I think it would be agreeable to you to publish, if judged suitable, a few extracts of the many manuscripts in my possession, written expressly for, and given to, me by my ever regretted master. To begin with, I send you “Stray Thoughts on Death and Satan” from his pen. I cannot close this letter without expressing the deep indignation aroused in me by the base diatribes published in the London Spiritualist against your Society and its members. Every honest heart is irritated at such unfair treatment, especially when proceeding from a man of honour as Mr. Harrison (editor of The Spiritualist) who admits in his journal anonymous contributions that are tantamount to libels. With the utmost respect, I remain, Madam, Yours devotedly, – […] Read More

Stars And Numbers

Ancient civilization saw nothing absurd in the claims of astrology, no more than many an educated and thoroughly scientific man sees in it today. Judicial astrology, by which the fate and acts of men and nations might be foreknown, [hardly] appeared, nor does it even now appear, any more unphilosophical or unscientific than does natural astrology or astronomy-by which the events of so-called brute and inanimate nature (changes of weather, &c.), might be predicted. For it was not even prophetic insight that was claimed by the votaries of that abstruse and really grand science, but simply a great proficiency in that method of procedure which allows the astrologer to foresee certain events in the life of a man by the position of the planets at the time of his birth. Once the probability, or even the simple possibility, of an occult influence exercised by the stars upon the destiny […] Read More

The Grand Inquisitor

[Dedicated by the Translator to those sceptics who clamour so loudly, both in print and private letters – “Show us the wonder-working ‘Brothers,’ let them come out publicly and – we will believe in them!”] [The following is an extract from M. Dostoevsky’s celebrated novel, The Brothers Karamazof, the last publication from the pen of the great Russian novelist, who died a few months ago, just as the concluding chapters appeared in print. Dostoevsky is beginning to be recognized as one of the ablest and profoundest among Russian writers. His characters are invariably typical portraits drawn from various classes of Russian society, strikingly life-like and realistic to the highest degree. The following extract is a cutting satire on modern theology generally and the Roman Catholic religion in particular. The idea is that Christ revisits earth, coming to Spain at the period of the Inquisition, and is at once arrested […] Read More
