[note from Tom – Donna at RNN allowed me to put this entry in my own words for the blog, but read her full article at RNN at the link below]
If you have read Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed, then by now you have learned an important secret concerning the capital city of the United States. According to the world’s foremost authorities—including Robert Hieronimus, United States official records, and even Freemason scholars—Washington DC was designed as a symbol of the Rosicrucian dream shared by its builders: that America would become the New Atlantis and eventually lead the world into a restored Golden Age of Osiris.
This mostly unfamiliar fact is what legendary Freemason, Manly P. Hall, called "the secret destiny of America." It is a vision mirrored in the design of the streets, government buildings, and other artifacts important to the founding of the United States, including the Great Seal, where the phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum is prominent. In his second inaugural address, George W. Bush said of this phrase that when the founders of America placed it on the Great Seal, "They were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled."
As I point out in Apollyon Rising 2012, novus ordo seclorum is derived from the prophecies of the Cumaean Sibyl, a prophetess of Apollo (Apollo is the Greek version of the Egyptian god Osiris) who predicted the return of this deity at a future date, when men would be rejoined by the gods. President Bush, in his official speech of record, said this scenario is "an ancient hope [plan, scheme] that is meant to be fulfilled" [emphasis added].
What is troubling is that this "god" is specifically identified in the Bible as the spirit that will inhabit the Antichrist. In other words, unknown to most Americans, the Great Seal of their country heralds an ancient prophecy of the coming Man of Sin.
I have been on a whirlwind tour since this new book’s release, doing as many as eight television and radio shows per day. In addition to nationally syndicated news and top-ten talk shows, I have been interviewed by United States congressmen, U.S. senators, and even 33rd-Degree Freemasons, none of whom have refuted my findings or conclusions.
During research for the book (which hit #1 the day of its release - thank you), I traveled to Washington DC, where I and one other person met with Masons at the House of the Temple, the headquarters of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite. These men were very cordial and mostly responsive to our questions, even confirming our understanding of the influence of Freemasonry in American history. Only when I pressed one of them about a ritual called the Raising Ceremony (the raising of Osiris from the dead—a.k.a. Hiram Abiff), which is conducted in the Temple Room on the third floor of the building, did these Masons become evasive and visibly uncomfortable.
The reason for this is that in addition to the Raising Ceremony being conducted when members reach the 33rd Degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, this strange ceremonial is performed without public knowledge in the Temple Room at the inauguration of every U.S. president. Why? Because deep esoteric meaning behind Egyptian and Rosicrucian magic that was incorporated in the rites and rituals of Freemasonry holds that the spirit of Osiris can be raised from the underworld and "installed" (for want of a better term) in the reigning king or president. This is why the U.S. Capitol Dome is laid out so as to face the Obelisk known as the Washington Monument, as well as other puzzling architecture in Government Center.
As I explain in Apollyon Rising 2012:
Unrecognized by the vast majority of peoples around the world is the greatest conspiracy of all time, sitting right out in the open in Washington DC and at the Vatican. It is an ancient, magical, talismanic diagram—the Lost Symbol—based on the history and cult of Isis, Osiris, Horus, and the prophecy of the deity’s return.
The primeval concept was designed in antiquity for the express purpose of regeneration, resurrection, and apotheosis, for deity incarnation from the underworld to earth’s surface through union of the respective figures—the Dome (ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis) and the Obelisk (ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Osiris)….
In ancient times, the Obelisk represented the god Osiris’ "missing" male organ, which Isis was not able to find after her husband/brother was slain and chopped into fourteen pieces by Seth. Isis replaced the missing organ with an Obelisk and magically impregnated herself with Horus, the resurrected Osiris. This legend formed the core of Egyptian cosmology and was fantastically venerated on the most imposing scale throughout all of Egypt by towering Obelisks, including at Karnak where the upright Obelisks (of Osiris) were "vitalized" or "stimulated" from the energy of the masturbatory Sun god Ra shining down upon them. Modern people, especially in America, may view these symbols as profane or pornographic, but they were in fact ritualized objects the ancients believed could produce tangible reactions, properties, or "manifestations" within the material world. The Obelisk and Dome as imitations of the deities’ male and female reproductive organs could, through government representation, invoke into existence the being or beings symbolized by them. This is why inside the temple or Dome, temple prostitutes representing the human manifestation of the goddess were also available for ritual sex as a form of imitative magic…
Through such imitative sex, the Dome and Obelisk became "energy receivers" capable of assimilating Ra’s essence from the rays of the sun, which in turn drew forth the "seed" of the underworld Osiris. The seed of the dead deity would, according to the supernaturalism, transmit upward from out of the underworld through the base (testes) of the Obelisk and magically ejaculate from the tower’s head into the womb (Dome) of Isis. In this way, Osiris could be "born again" or reincarnated as Horus over and over….
In Washington, the Obelisk built by Freemasons and dedicated to America’s first president stands near the west end of the National Mall. It is the tallest Obelisk of its kind in the world, at 6,660 inches high (555 feet) and 666 inches wide (55.5 feet) along each side at the base….
In Egypt, where raising Osiris to life through these magical constructs was perfected, Pharaoh served as the "fit extension" for the reborn god to take residence in as the "sex act" was ritualized at the site of the largest religious structure ever built—the temple of Amun-Ra at Karnak where Pharaoh became the receptacle of the spirit of Osiris during the festival of Opet. The festival was held at the temple of Luxor, where the Pharaoh entered the holy womb-temple beyond the Obelisk and was transmogrified into the living deity, the son of Amun-Ra and Osiris. From then forward, Pharaoh was considered the incarnation of the god Horus (resurrected Osiris) during his lifetime, and in death experienced apotheosis again, becoming Osiris in the underworld, the dying and resurrecting god, a cycle repeated with every newly appointed king.
Thus Pharaoh was—just as the god ciphered on the Great Seal of the United States will be—the son and spiritual incarnation of the Supreme Deity.
While revelations such as these have spawned controversy following the release of Apollyon Rising 2012, they are only the tip of the iceberg. Obviously there is never enough time as a guest on a radio or television show to get into the fullest details, but we are currently finishing up a special six-hour audio series on the RNN network that should be available sometime in February. During these recorded hours, we will be covering in greater detail the True Lost Symbol, which I believe Dan Brown understood but for some reason chose not to reveal in his latest novel. What we will make known is going to shock some people. The information will be as well-documented as the research in Apollyon Rising 2012 and I am doing the additional work because the publisher was inundated over the last month with requests from readers for more information regarding a particular section in my book that briefly mentions a "Magic Binding Square" in the base of the Washington Monument.
There is a Bible that is ‘magically bound’ inside this square in Washington. It is the same Bible Dan Brown called ‘the Lost Symbol.’ But this Bible is only a small part—albeit a very important part—of the complete schematic of the Lost Symbol Diagram. When the entire picture is viewed as it was intended to be—all of the symbols and structures in Government Center as a single portraiture, as well as why they were designed and laid out the way they are—what emerges is the True Lost Symbol, an elaborate alchemical construct that can only be rightly understood within the historical meaning of the symbolism.
And that is?
If the DC diagram is interpreted based on the classical and fixed meaning of the combined symbols and beliefs of the designers, not only did the metaphysicians among America’s founders who had control of the capital’s layout plan a city in honor of the return of Apollo/Osiris and the dawn of his new Golden Pagan Age (the Sibyl’s prophecy on the Great Seal), but the blueprint in DC and the rituals conducted by Freemasons, both modern and historic, illustrate a high degree of operational magic intended to bring the prophecy about. The sole purpose of the rituals and these constructs is to raise the spirit of Osiris from the underworld into human form. This incarnation of Osiris is parodied in the House of the Temple (Heredom) during changes in U.S. presidents, just as they were in the ancient Egyptian ritual of raising Osiris into Pharaoh. But the ritual in DC is rehearsed in anticipation of a greater moment in time, when the literal, physical return of the entity Apollo/Osiris will give birth to the novus ordo seclorum. Think of the rituals in the House of the Temple as a warm-up for Antichrist’s actual Second Coming.
To assure that the arrival of Apollo/Osiris will not be impeded by the influence of Christianity—which so many of America’s citizens have been devoted to since the country’s founding—the "Lost Symbol" Bible was placed in a Magic Binding Square inside the "testes" of the DC Obelisk of Osiris (Washington Monument). According to the occultism, this binding utility is meant to restrain the Bible’s influence while allowing the seed of Osiris to materialize.
Further confirmation of this is in the fact these symbols were faithfully reproduced at the House of the Temple (see support notes below). This includes the 13-stepped, uncapped pyramid (like the one on the Great Seal and the pyramidion on top of the Washington Obelisk made of 13-rows of marble hidden beneath aluminium sheeting) that rests atop the House of the Temple, and a Magic Binding Square with the same numerical values as the Washington Obelisk. The Magic Square can be seen in the skylight above the Temple Room, which intentionally hovers over where the Raising of Osiris Ceremony is performed.
The importance of these specific symbols and their numerological properties duplicated at the House of the Temple cannot be overemphasized. In addition to the 13-stepped uncapped pyramid and the magic square, the House of the Temple was placed 13 blocks North of the White House, there are 33 columns surrounding the building, and each is 33 feet high. The building's address also contains the number 33.
When you look at the DC layout with an understanding of ancient Babylonian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Greek, Kabbalistic, and Rosicrucian magic, and how the pagans used vertical and horizontal positioning of their structures, streets, temples, symbols, and lines to represent the supernatural connection between heavenly [vertical] and earthly [horizontal] powers, the entire scene in Washington not only becomes transparent, but reveals volumes.
For instance, note how the White House is positioned so that a direct vertical line from the House of the Temple bypasses the edge of it to connect to the Osirian Washington Monument. This illustrates that, while the president in the White House has an earthly [horizontal] role to play, the supernatural administration of the will of the gods—that is, the vertical connection between heaven and earth—emanates through the Supreme Mother Lodge. It is here that "The Raising Ceremony" is performed, which brings forth the seed of Osiris through the stem of the phallic Washington Monument, that is in turn ejected laterally into the womb of Isis, the Capitol Dome, where earthly leaders are ‘conceived’ to carry out the will of the gods upon earth. This is also where the deity’s fleshly representatives can themselves someday reach apotheosis and become gods, as depicted in the scene of George Washington overhead and in the gnosticism of Dan Brown’s book, Freemasonic belief, and so on.
If you’ve read my book, Apollyon Rising 2012, then you understand that this is why presidents are inaugurated there, as well as why they stand at the Dome—which the founding designers admitted was a religious Temple based on Freemasonry and devotion to Osiris—facing the Obelisk whenever they give speeches that will affect the administration of the gods on earth. To stand at the Dome and face the Obelisk is a public act of respect, recognition, honor, subservience to the powers historically represented by these symbols—Isis, Osiris, and Apollo.
