I recently started reading Tracy Twyman’s book Clock Shavings, which is pretty amazing. In it she recounts her Ouija board sessions with Cain and Baphomet. Crazy stuff, but I find her credible.
According to the usual understanding the Knights Templar revered Baphomet, as Twyman also says, but she suggests that most the secret societies following them, such as Freemasons and the Priory of Sion, have been started by Baphomet in some manner. She links Baphomet with the Gnostic goddess of wisdom Sophia. I wonder what John Lash would say about it?
Twyman writes that Baphomet has been known through many names in different times, and suggests that Mithras, the god of contracts, is one of Baphomet’s identities. She states: “Originally a Persian deity, Mithras came to be worshipped throughout the ancient world. His greatest act was to be sacrificed in exchange for the eternal salvation of mankind. Mithras was known as the god of contracts. He was the mediator between the Persian “Ahura Mazda” (God) and “Ahriman” (the Devil). Indeed, Mithras’ name actually means “contract”.”
Commonly Baphomet is equated with the devil and other evil things, but the truth isn’t that black and white, it seems. Also Freemasons apparently revere Baphomet as well, and while I cannot say for sure to what extent the conspiracy theories that blame the Freemasons for all sort of stuff are true, I’d be very surprised if there was no truth to the accusations. So I would say that there are a lot of nasty people who do somehow employ Baphomet’s powers for their own gain, yet Baphomet him/herself would be neutral in a moralistic perspective. After all if Mithras was Baphomet, and Mithras was a mediator between Ahura Mazda and Ahriman, Baphomet would definitely fit in a moral gray area.
Another interesting revelation in Clock Shavings is the game Ageio, the predecessor to chess, Chinese Xiangqi and Indian Chaturanga. This game, however, isn’t about competing, but a device for making magical rituals of some sort. It also uses tokens called agei. The tokens have alchemical power to transmute somewhat meaningless items into something of value. Pretty much like money these days. It’s just pieces of paper or numbers on a computer screen, but still if you have lots of it, you can use it to gain things of real value. Cain, who tells Twyman about Ageio, calls agei “goat money”. Twyman notes that Ageio and agei come from the Greek root word “ag”, which means goat. Another possibility is “agios”, which stands for “sacred,” “holy,” or “saint.”
The word “aegis” comes from the same root probably. It’s a word used in many fantasy roleplaying games, and it has haunted me since childhood. Usually an aegis is a shield or other protective device. Athena and Zeus in Greek myths carry one, and no-one is quite sure what it is, but usually its regarded as an animal skin or shield. Possibly a shield made from animal skin, or goat skin. Wikipedia even mentions the possibility the aegis was some sort of shamanic pouch.
Baphomet, of course, is depicted as a goat. And now finally we are getting to the point I’m trying to make. This Baphometic influence seems to be so prevalent in our society, most people don’t think anything of it. Baphomet is somehow behind the fiat currency system of making something out of nothing. Was Baphomet the creature from Jekyll Island, where the Federal Reserve was birthed? Baphomet being the god of contracts is somehow also behind the need for the “Illuminati” to always tell people in advance what they are going to do, predictive programming and all that. I think subconsciously the masses even know it, but it’s part of the contract between the elites and the masses that the masses get to keep their ignorance and live in their Disney Worlds’ while the dark occultists do their thing. However, now that contract is breaking down for some reason.
Then there’s Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book The Grand Chessboard. I think in the recent Red Ice interview Alexander Dugin said that Brzezinski commented that he had never considered that chess is a game for two. Maybe Brzezinski wasn’t thinking about chess, but Ageio.
Assuming there is any truth to this, I don’t think Baphomet is somehow controlling and enslaving humanity, but rather humanity is using Baphomet to enslave itself. To escape some ancient trauma, perhaps.
Cain, according to Twyman, was not just some peasant who killed his brother, but a god-king in the pre-diluvian world. There was a cataclysmic war that lead to the biblical flood. In the war the Dohir kings, who were sons of Cain, fought against him. For some reason when I think of the Dohir kings, I cannot help but imagine the kings from the Lord of the Rings who were corrupted by the Rings of Power and became Ringwraiths, the Nazgûl.
Another thing, according to Cain, is that Aegean Sea (east of Greece) is where the Land of Nod used to be, but now it’s under water. In the world of Song of Ice and Fire, better known by the TV series Game of Thrones, there is a place called Valyria. It’s similar to myths of Atlantis with great magic and all that, but it was destroyed in a great catastrophe. To me the location on the map has always looked like Greece. I thought it natural since the legend of Atlantis comes to us from Greece, so the author George R. R. Martin made Valyria look like Greece. But maybe there’s more to it than that.
This is a screenshot of Valyria (after the cataclysm) from the game Crusader Kings 2, A Game of Thrones-mod.
Compared side to side with the map of Greece and Aegean sea Valyria does not look alike, but on a subconcious level I do find them similar.
