1894: A Wailing Ghost In Brooklyn

XAVIER ORTEGA Sr. Editor at GhostTheory A cold darkness permeated Brooklyn’s east side one night in 1894. Under a bright moonlight, the cobblestone streets glistened as a thick fog poured over them. A fog that made its way down the hills surrounding Brooklyn’s Ward 27. An area surrounded by cemeteries that were almost as old as the dark, wet dirt that fills them. On these empty streets, five young women found themselves ankle-deep in a coiling fog. In a hurry, they decided to cut across an empty lot near Knickerbocker Avenue. As the ladies made their way through the lot, something made them stop dead in their tracks. Something white up ahead. The wafting fog grew more and more as the women shivered together. Just then, a hysterical cry ripped through the fog, sending a bolt of lightning down their chilled spines. Before any of them could move, much less utter a […] Read More

2016: How Rockefeller’s Oil Industry Conquered Medicine, Finance and Agriculture

“How Big Oil Conquered the World” is a brilliant piece of investigative journalism presented by James Corbett, revealing the immense extent to which the oil industry has shaped and is ruling the world as we know it. “From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the petrochemical industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oligarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.” Corbett carefully details the sordid back story of today’s “oligarchy.” While most people are well-acquainted with the Rockefeller name, few probably know the true history of the Rockefellers’ rise to power. Big Oil — An Industry Founded on Treachery and Deceit As […] Read More

2015: New York’s Island of the Dead

It’s a place in which close to a million bodies rest underneath the earth. The bodies of those forgotten by society and the bodies of those who society never knew.  It’s the United States’ largest mass burial site yet the only way to set foot on top of that soil is by either official permission by New York’s  Department of Correction, an inmate at Rikers prison, or as a cadaver. Hart Island, New York.  Around a mile long and about a quarter mile in width, the island is a small patch of land floating on the Long Island Sound next to the Bronx. For over a century it has been the site of a mass grave and home to the hundreds of thousands of paupers and unclaimed residents of New York state.  A Dark Hart: Prison camp, Lunatic asylum, Reformatory, Sanatorium, and a Potter’s field Closed off to the […] Read More

2014: New Lake Champlain Mystery

Since the early 19th century Lake Champlain, spanning the border between Vermont and New York state has been considered home to an American cousin of Nessie. Similar surveys of its waters have been done, with as inconclusive results. One modern search for the creature known as Champ has netted and interesting if inconclusive and equally mystifying result. According to WCAX News. BURLINGTON, Vt. – Dennis Hall spends much of his time monitoring Lake Champlain. “Normally there’s no noise. It was different. Different. And so clear,” said Hall. The Panton man is looking for a legend. He made headlines in 1985 when he claimed to spot the lake creature, known as Champ. “Something made the noises and it’s totally amazing,” said Hall. Since then, he’s been chasing Champ trying to record the mythical monster’s every move. “Not hearing anything like I heard before,” said Hall. I was listening with the […] Read More

1996: The couldn’t give a XXXX FILES

Our own Sculley and Mulder mixed up in one Captain W E Paranoia this month investigate the Aids virus. Did it just happen or was it created in a lab ?. My father, Wing Commander Paranoia, used to say ‘you can’t enslave a free man, you can only kill him.’ Information is exactly the same, no attempts at imprisoning, restraining or gagging it will ever succeed. The more draconian the measures, the more hi-tech the equipment used to impound it, the more channels will be found for its dissemination. Let’s not forget that the Net itself (probably one of the greatest information liberators we’ve invented) was created by intelligence and military forces bent on societal repression. Fears are rife throughout the cyber community of increasing crackdowns on the information superhighway, as the forces that be, like sick evil drooling vultures sharpen their knives and prepare to swoop. Take heart, […] Read More

1876: (New) York Against Lankester

A New War Of The Roses Despite the constant recurrence of new discoveries by modern men of science, an exaggerated respect for authority and an established routine among the educated class retard the progress of true knowledge. Facts which, if observed, tested, classified and appreciated, would be of inestimable importance to science, are summarily cast into the despised limbo of supernaturalism. To these conservatives the experience of the past serves neither as an example nor a warning. The overturning of a thousand cherished theories finds our modern philosopher as unprepared for each new scientific revelation as though his predecessor had been infallible from time immemorial. The protoplasmist should, at least, in modesty remember that his past is one vast cemetery of dead theories; a desolate potter’s field wherein exploded hypotheses lie, in ignoble oblivion, like so many executed malefactors, whose names cannot be pronounced by the next of kin […] Read More

Answers to Queries

A Correspondent from New York writes: . . . . The Editors of LUCIFER would confer a great benefit on those who are attracted to the movement which they advocate, if they would state: (I) Whether a would-be-theosophist-occultist is required to abandon his worldly ties and duties such as family affection, love of parents, wife, children, friends, etc.? I ask this question because it is rumoured here that some theosophical publications have so stated, and would wish to know whether such a sine quâ non condition really exists in your Rules? The same, however, is found in the New Testament. “He that loveth father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me, etc., etc,” is said in Matthew (x. 37). Do the MASTERS of Theosophy demand as much? Yours in the Search […] Read More

What Are The Theosophists?

Are they what they claim to be – students of natural law, of ancient and modern philosophy, and even of exact science? Are they Deists, Atheists, Socialists, Materialists, or Idealists; or are they but a schism of modern Spiritualism, – mere visionaries? Are they entitled to any consideration, as capable of discussing philosophy and promoting real science; or should they be treated with the compassionate toleration which one gives to “harmless enthusiasts”? The Theosophical Society has been variously charged with a belief in “miracles,” and “miracle-working”; with a secret political object – like the Carbonari; with being spies of an autocratic Czar; with preaching socialistic and nihilistic doctrines; and, mirabile dictu, with having a covert understanding with the French Jesuits, to disrupt modern Spiritualism for a pecuniary consideration! With equal violence they have been denounced as dreamers, by the American Positivists; as fetish-worshippers, by some of the New York […] Read More

Can one create a new reality on a new timeline?

Part One: By Misty http://www.angelfire.com/nm2/aona/gridlines.html INTRODUCTION TO CREATING NEW TIMELINES I became aware of parallel realities as a young child in my birthplace Dunedin, New Zealand (which has majority Scot population) when I kept slipping into a past life, from continually hearing Scotland the Brave etc on the bagpipes. I have some Scots ancestors. The music must have created a time portal to its original source, through the generated sentimental emotion. I kept re-experiencing myself in a past life there as an invalid woman a few centuries ago, who spent most of her life dreaming of far away places. About age 17, after I’d moved to another city called Gisborne, I used to paint to rock music and this time the music sent me somewhere else. I was propelled about 20 years ahead in time, with constant deja vus endlessly hammering at me like a battering ram! Only I […] Read More
