REBELLIOUS MEMES WITH A CAUSE: MIND MELDING FOR THE MAN OF SIN
Although it makes this entry a bit longer and I do apologize, before moving beyond the question of curious numbers and contagious memes employed by occultists, one of the more fascinating correlation’s between the number 11, the Pillars of Hercules, Bacon’s New Atlantis, and what happened in New York on 9/11 is the arcane symbolism based on the 11th labor of Hercules, also important to Kaballah and Masonic rituals.
In mythology, Hercules was driven mad by Hera and killed his own children. To atone for his sins, he was required by Eurystheus to carry out ten labors, which he did. But Eurystheus, an enemy who had ascended the throne in Hercules place, would not accept labor #2 (killing the 9-headed Lernaean Hydra) nor labor #5 (cleansing the Augean stables) because Hercules had allowed his nephew Lolaus to help him burn the heads of the chthonic Hydra plus he had accepted payment for the Augean stables work. Eurystheus therefore assigned two new labors: #11—Steal the Golden Apples of the Hesperides that had been hidden by the Titan Atlas, and #12—Capture Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog of Hades.
In Greek mythology, the garden of the Hesperides (the nymphs who tended Hera’s garden) was located in Libya near the Atlas Mountains. Depending on the version of the story, either a single tree or grove of trees yielded golden apples there, which, when eaten, produced immortality. Because Hera was suspicious that the nymphs would eat the apples, she placed a hundred-headed dragon there named Ladon to guard it. To get past the dragon, Hercules tricked Atlas, the first king of Atlantis (whose name means ‘Pillar’ and who was burdened with holding the heavens and earth upon his shoulders) into retrieving some of the apples for him, as the beast would not attack him. The Greek scholar Apollodorus, who lived more than one-hundred years before Christ, tells what happened next:
But when Atlas had received three apples from the Hesperides, he came to Hercules, and not wishing to support the sphere he said that he would himself carry the apples to Eurystheus, and bade Hercules hold up the sky in his stead. Hercules promised to do so, but succeeded by craft in putting it on Atlas instead. For at the advice of Prometheus he begged Atlas to hold up the sky till he should put a pad on his head. When Atlas heard that, he laid the apples down on the ground and took the sphere from Hercules. And so Hercules picked up the apples and departed. But some say that he did not get them from Atlas, but that he plucked the apples himself after killing the guardian snake. 
Numerous elements from the 11th labor of Hercules stand out as important to occultists when appreciating the message of 9/11. First is the obvious number 11, which marked the attack on the Twin Towers in New York as a work of destructive forces. Second, the Arch Villain in this case was played by Osama Bin Laden, whose last name is remarkable in that ‘Bin Laden’ means “son of Laden” or, alternatively, “Ladon,” the mystical hundred-headed dragon that Hercules had to avoid or destroy. Third, in Masonic mysticism, Jesus Christ is Hercules. In Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Albert Pike writes, “‘God,” says Maximus Tyrius, “did not spare His own Son [Hercules], or exempt Him from the calamities incidental to humanity. The Theban progeny of Jove had his share of pain and trial.”’  Fourth, Atlas was the first king of Atlantis, important to both the antediluvian and Baconian Atlantis. Fifth, the Golden Apples of the Hesperides reminds of the nickname of New York City where the Twin Towers were attacked, commonly called “The Big Apple.” Sixth, immediately after retrieving the Golden Apples, Hercules freed Prometheus from the Caucasus Mountains where Zeus had him chained. Recall the point made earlier in this study that Prometheus was the Greek Titan that stole fire from the gods and gave it to man. When he is incarnated in the human mind as the mystical longing for illumination (a “fire in the mind”), the latter produces what James Billington called “the Promethean faith,” a Gnostic doctrine whose origin was solidified in occult Freemasonry. And seventh, the 11th labor of Hercules centers where the three Pillars of Atlas stood, emphasizing again the role of the Three Pillars of Freemasonry as integral to the events of 9/11 and the metaphor of Hercules.
If the 11th labor of Hercules was intended as symbolic during 9/11, the ancient story was corrected in the New York version to reveal an interesting interpretation of the allegory. In the retelling, revengeful power (number 11) was released by the Dragon (Bin Laden, son of Ladon, the Devil of Rev. 12 and 13) where the Golden Apple Garden (NYC, the Big Apple, where the promise of Gold dominated) existed, and overpowered Jesus Christ (Hercules). The result created a fire in the minds of men (the release of Prometheus), which moved through and then beyond the Twin Towers/Pillars of New York (the pillars of Atlas-Freemasonry-Enoch-Solomon-Atlantis), quickly resulting in universal appeal for a New World Order (culmination of the New Atlantis).
In addition to the 11th labor of Hercules, at least two other oddities stand out as possible evidence of a bizarre and occult synchronicity at work during the events of 9/11. On this date the Pentagon—located on the 77th meridian west and whose foundation stone was laid during a Masonic ceremony on 9/11, 1941—was also attacked. The number 77 happens to be the fire department’s 10-Code (10-77) for a high-rise multiple dwelling fire. More important, the number 77, like the number 11, is a powerful Master Number, which occultists believe represents the ascension of a New Age Christ “consciousness.” The Islamic radicals that attacked the United States on 9/11 would have known that the number 77 is prominent in the religion of Islam, partly due to a statement by their prophet Muhammad, which is interpreted as faith having “77 branches.” In the Book of Luke 3:23-38, there were 77 generations from Adam to Jesus Christ. There were 77 generations from Enoch to Christ according to one account. In some versions of the Bible such as the International Standard Version, 77 is the number of times to forgive offenses (most versions read “seventy times seven”). Conversely, Saint Augustine thought the number 77 represented the ultimate measure of sin because it was a product of the “sin” number (11) times the number of divinity or “perfection” (7), thus 11 X 7 = 77. Perhaps this is also why Satanists have 77 names for the Devil.
Over and above these generalizations, an enlightening observation is discovered when the number 77 is understood as an “illuminated signal” for the “Revenge of Lamech.” This is drawn from Genesis 4:23-24, which says, “And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah. ‘Hear my voice: ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold” (77). Lamech was a descendant of Cain, the first murderer in the Bible, and the father of Tubal-Cain, a master craftsman. In Masonic tradition, the lineage of Lamech is very important because he is considered the forefather of Hiram Abiff, the First Grand Master of the order of Masons and Chief Architect of the Temple of Solomon. The name of Lamech’s son, “Tubal-Cain” is used as the title for a secret handgrip in Masonic ritual, which bestows passage of the Third Degree Master Mason. This is more than superficially important, as handgrips in Freemasonry form a Luciferian antithesis to the Biblical concept of virtuous power-transference or “blessings” through greetings or “laying on of hands.” The Mason is actually instructed to “follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain” in order to master the “seething energies of Lucifer [that] are in his hands.”
Celebrated 33° Freemason, Manly P. Hall explains:
The day has come when Fellow Craftsman must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion, which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.” 
The relationship between Lucifer and possessing “the mighty strength of the war god” is explained by various Masonic sources as a reference to the Roman god Vulcan, the son of Jupiter and Juno, a sun deity associated with lightning and volcanic fire to which human sacrifices were made. His connection with “the seething energies of Lucifer” thus makes sense given that the myth of Vulcan closely resembles the fall of Lucifer and his subsequent position on earth. Various works have provided evidence that Vulcan is actually identical with or related to the biblical Satan. “According to Diel, he bears a family relationship to the Christian devil,” writes J.C. Cirlot in the Dictionary of Symbols. 
If the number 77 on September 11, 2001 pointed to “revenge” upon the United States by the Royal Bloodline descendents of Lamech, they were following the footsteps of Tubal-Cain indeed, releasing “the seething energies of Lucifer” and the “strength” of Vulcan (Satan) to whom “human sacrifices” must be made. To what end? Manly P. Hall writes:
“The outcome of the ‘secret destiny’ is a World Order ruled by a King with supernatural powers. This King was descended of a divine race; that is, he belonged to the Order of the Illumined for those who come to a state of wisdom then belong to a family of heroes-perfected human beings.”—Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America.
Events unfolding since 9/11 portend a near future in which a man of superior intelligence, wit, charm, and diplomacy will emerge on the world scene as a savior. He will seemingly possess a transcendent wisdom that enables him to solve problems and to offer solutions for many of today’s most perplexing issues. His popularity will be widespread and his fans will include young and old, religious and non-religious, male and female. Talk show hosts will interview his colleagues, news anchors will cover his movements, scholars will applaud his uncanny ability at resolving what has escaped the rest of us, and the poor will bow down at his table. He will, in all human respects, appeal to the best idea of society. But his profound comprehension and irresistible presence will be the result of an invisible network of thousands of years of collective knowledge. He will, like the god Vulcan, represent the embodiment of a very old super-intellegent spirit. As Jesus Christ was the “seed of the woman” (Gen. 3:15), he will be the “seed of the serpent.” Moreover, though his arrival in the form of a man was foretold by numerous Scriptures, the broad masses will not immediately recognize him for what he actually is—paganism’s ultimate incarnation; the “beast” of Revelation 13:1.
It’s been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Antichrist would be a “revived” world order—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve, and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world, orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, a single personality will surface. He will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Dan. 8:23). With imperious decree he will facilitate a one-world government, universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed until at last he exalts himself “above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:4).
For many years the notion of an Orwellian society where one-world government oversees the smallest details of our lives and in which human liberties are abandoned was considered anathema. The idea that rugged individualism would somehow be sacrificed for an anesthetized universal harmony was repudiated by America’s greatest minds. Then, in the 1970’s, things began to change. Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a “New World Order,” presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, “We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics.” This struck a chord with international leaders including President George Herbert Walker Bush, who in the 1980s began championing the one-world dirge, announcing over national television that the time for “a New World Order” had arrived. The invasion into Kuwait by Iraq/Babylon provided perfect cover for allied forces to engage the Babylonian “prince” by launching Desert Storm against Saddam Hussein’s forces, an effort Bush made clear was “to forge for ourselves and for future generations a New World Order… in which a credible United Nations can use its… role to fulfill the promise and vision of the U.N.’s founders.” Following this initial statement, Bush addressed the Congress where he added:
“What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea—a New World Order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind…. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children’s future…. the long-held promise of a New World Order…”
Ever since the President’s astonishing newscast, the parade of political and religious leaders in the United States and abroad pushing for a New World Order has multiplied. Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair in a speech delivered in Chicago, April 22, 1999, said frankly, “We are all internationalists now, whether we like it or not.” Blair could barely have imagined how quickly his doctrine would catch on. By December 9, 2008, respected chief foreign affairs columnist for The Financial Times, Gideon Rachman (who attended the 2003 and 2004 Bilderberg meetings at Versailles, France, and Stresa, Italy) admitted, “I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.” The United Kingdom’s Gordon Brown not only agreed, but in an article for The Sunday Times, March 1, 2009, said it was time “for all countries of the world” to renounce “protectionism” and to participate in a new “international” system of banking and regulations “to shape the 21st century as the first century of a truly global society.” On January 1, 2009, Mikhail Gorbachev, the former head of state of the USSR, said the global clamor for change and the election of Barack Obama was the catalyst that might finally convince the world of the need for global government. In an article for the International Herald Tribune, he said:
Throughout the world, there is a clamor for change. That desire was evident in November, in an event that could become both a symbol of this need for change and a real catalyst for that change. Given the special role the United States continues to play in the world, the election of Barack Obama could have consequences that go far beyond that country…
If current ideas for reforming the worlds financial and economic institutions are consistently implemented, that would suggest we are finally beginning to understand the important of global governance.
Four days later on January 5, 2009, the chorus call for a New World Order was ramped up by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger while on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. A reporter for CNBC asked Kissinger what he thought Barack Obama’s first actions as President should be in light of the global financial crises. He answered, “I think that his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a New World Order can be created.” Kissinger followed on January 13th, with an opinion piece distributed by Tribune Media Services titled The Chance for a New World Order. Addressing the international financial crises inherited by Barack Obama, Kissinger discussed the need for an international political order (world government) to rise and govern a new international monetary and trade system. “The nadir of the existing international financial system coincides with simultaneous political crises around the globe,” he wrote. “The alternative to a new international order is chaos.” Kissinger went on to highlight Obama’s extraordinary impact on the “imagination of humanity,” calling it “an important element in shaping a New World Order.”  Kissinger—a Rockefeller functionary and member of the Bilderberg group and Trilateral Commission who routinely turns up in lists among senior members of the Illuminati—peppered his article with key phrases from Masonic dogma, including the comment about the “alternative to a new international order is chaos,” a clear reference to “Ordo ab Chao” from Ancient Craft Masonry, a reference to the doctrine of “Order out of Chaos.” Like the mythical Phoenix firebird, Kissinger visualized the opportunity for a New World Order to be engineered from the ashes of current global chaos, exactly the point he had made years earlier at the Bilderberger meeting in Evian, France, May 21, 1991 when describing how the world could be manipulated into willingly embracing global government. He said:
“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.” 
During his second inaugural address, U.S. President George W. Bush likewise envisioned the specter of a Babylonian-like One World Government. With an almost religious tone he cited Masonic script, saying, “When our Founders declared a new order of the ages . . . they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.”  New Age guru Benjamin Creme was clearer still on how the marriage of politics and religion would epitomize the New World Order when he said some years ago, “What is the plan? It includes the installation of a new world government and a new world religion under Maitreia” (Maitreia is a New Age “messiah”).  Five-time United States Senator from Arizona and Republican Presidential nominee in 1964, Barry Goldwater likewise foresaw the union of politics and religion as a catalyst for global government. In writing of the efforts of behind-the-scenes groups including international bankers to bring about a New World Order, he said it would occur through consolidating “the four centers of power—political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical.” As the managers and creators of the new (prophetic) system, this power elite would “rule the future” of mankind he believed.  So concerned was Goldwater with the consolidation of government policy and religious creed that on September 16, 1981 he took the unique position of warning political preachers from the floor of the US Senate that he would “fight them every step of the way if they [tried] to dictate their [religious ideas] to all Americans in the name of conservatism.” The increasing influence of the Religious Right on the Republican Party was bothersome to Goldwater in particular because of his libertarian views. It should have concerned theologians as well, and I say this as a man often associated with the Religious Right. Combining religious faith with politics as a legislative system of governance hearkens the formula upon which Antichrist will come to power (note how in the Book of Revelation chapter 13 the political figure of Antichrist derives ultranational dominance from the world’s religious faithful through the influence of an ecclesiastical leader known as the False Prophet). Neither Jesus nor his disciples (who turned the world upside down through preaching the Gospel of Christ, the true “power of God” according to Paul) ever imagined the goal of changing the world through supplanting secular government with an authoritarian theocracy. In fact, Jesus made it clear that his followers would not fight earthly authorities purely because His Kingdom was “not of this world” (John 18:36). While every modern citizen—religious and non-religious—has responsibility to lobby for moral good, combining the mission of the Church with political aspirations is not only unprecedented in New Testament theology—including the life of Christ and the pattern of the New Testament Church—but, as Goldwater may have feared, a tragic scheme concocted by sinister forces to defer the Church from its true power while enriching insincere bureaucrats, a disastrous fact that only now some are beginning to understand.
Behind these scenes and beyond view of the world’s uninitiated members, the alchemy and rituals of the occult masters—Illuminatists, Masons, Bonesmen, Bilderbergers and Bohemians—have combined to harmonize so completely within recent U.S. foreign and domestic policies as to clearly point to a terrifying Sibyl’s conjure, a near future horizon upon which a leader of indescribable brutality will appear. Although this false prince of peace will seem at first to hold unique answers to life’s most challenging questions, ultimately he will make the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphenes, Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan, all of whom were types of the Antichrist, look like child’s play. He will raise his fist, “speaking great things.... in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” (Rev. 13:5-6). He will champion worship of the “old gods” and “cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Rev. 13:15), and he will revive an ancient mystery religion that is “the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” (Rev. 18:2).
Nevertheless . . . the world is readied . . . indeed hungry for . . . a political savior to arise now with a plan to deliver mankind from upheaval.
