Digging Up Drugs

Digging Up Drugs From Past

By | articles | No Comments

Ironically, dealing with drugs is not a modern issue. Drug abuse has been prevalent since ancient times. There are fascinating accounts of early uses (and abuses) of recreational drugs and other natural stimulants from Mesopotamian civilizations (like Babylonian, Sumerian), Mayan periods, from Chinese history, and a plethora of details from Greek and Roman empires. Many well-known historical figures from the past have also been known as ‘drug abusers’.

Drugs have been a big thing since early recorded history and historical evidence, uncovered in last few decades, have shed further light on the extensive social use of opium, coca leaves, psilocybin (shrooms), cannabis and harmala. Sadly, some of these are significant concerns in many countries to this day, despite ‘continuous efforts’ to limit it.

We all know about our own ‘war on drugs’ officially initiated by Richard Nixon in 1971; operations spanning over decades, fought across multiple continents, with and against other authorities in multiple countries, billions spent and a huge number of lives lost. This ‘war on drugs’, which started much earlier than that famous Nixon press-conference, has been an ongoing thing. With so much literature, research papers and investigative pieces, on the subject available online, today, we are not going to ponder much on the recent history in the fight against drug addiction and drug abuse. But we are turning back the clock, to introduce you with many amazing details from ancient times. We are digging up drugs from the Past!

Since the dawn of time, it seems people have been wanting to get high and several research studies and findings support this assertion. Drug abuse was prevalent in almost all ancient civilizations, it dates back to as old as time, and as food and drinks. Early painting and artwork discovered by archeologists, along with fossils of psychoactive plants, found around the world, provide great historical evidence of this drug addiction in antiquity.

Shrooms and Ancient Religions

Artworks unearthed in Africa circa 8,000 BC are the earliest known evidence of ‘magic mushrooms’ or psilocybin. It is believed that these hallucinogenic shrooms were quite popular in the past as well.  These mushrooms were regarded holy in Mayan religion and had a substantial cultural role. Mayan religion associated hallucinations with rituals and sacrifice of the Underworld.

Apart from Mayans, Shamans were also fans of shrooms as they believed their state of mind after having shrooms, connected them to the spirits. There is a whole chunk of historians who are convinced that we have these mushrooms today all thanks to the Shamans and several cultural shifts over the later centuries.

Tobacco As The career Of Prayers

South America is said to be the first place where smoking pipes originated but nicotine has been used since ancient Egyptian times. Several Egyptian mummies are found with traces of nicotine and cocaine which was derived from coca leaves.

Native Americans are known for their use of tobacco. They believed that the smoke from tobacco held the power to carry their prayers to gods. They smoked it to transport their prayers (convenient!). The Native Americans were smoking it even before people of the Old World got to know about it and it became a household name in Europe.

Opium and Alexander the Great

In 3,400 BC, Sumerians were the first to cultivate opium. However, quite a few other ancient civilizations used it, too. It was primarily used for medicinal purposes the same as today and was then abused by some, again the same as today.

There is evidence of Chinese and Romans who used it for recreational purposes. Pipes were invented later and before the advent of pipes, it was taken orally. Soon, it was realized by people from ancient times that the effects of opium are far greater and far worst when they smoke it.

This particular drug has always had the kind of power that can drive civilizations livid. During the 19th century, British and Chinese even fought ‘the opium wars’. The influence of opium over the geopolitics and global political economy was maddening even back then.

Look who made it here, Alexander the Great, surprised? Well, this noble guy was a drunkard, to begin with. He didn’t shy away from opium and introduced the drug quite happily to Persians and Indians.

Opium and Marcus Aurelius

One of the greatest Roman Emperors was a lover of opium. He was a stoic, a philosopher who explains his love for the drug. The facts indicate he needed the drug due to some medical condition and took it every night before bed.

Opium was only available to the higher ranks in the society back then and since Marcus Aurelius was an Emperor, he didn’t have any difficulties.

Herbs and Pot in Pyramid of Ramesses 3

Egyptians were quite familiar with smoking pot but they weren’t restricted to it. Marijuana was also popular as many pharaohs were accustomed to it.

Ramesses III was one of them because signs of pot have been discovered inside his tomb. It is believed that the generation of Ramesses III discovered the medical advantages of cannabis and used it effectively for sore eyes.

Ancient nations were very fond and respectable of magic and prophecies. The ones who claimed to be prophets of sorts were highly honored by the people. However, the evidence shows foulness and cheating, even in antiquity, as most of these respected men were stoned. The oracles sold were drug-induced mirages. The drugs were all herbal mostly.

Marijuana In China

In China, around 2700 BC, cannabis was first used as a recreational drug but other herbs have been there for more time such as Blue Lotus. The effects of Blue Lotus are even found in The Odyssey by Homer where he described it as, “robbing of any willpower”.

Medical marijuana was first used in China under Emperor Shennong around 2700 BC. He encouraged farmers to grow cannabis for industrial purposes. It was used to combat rheumatism and gout. His name, without a surprise, is translated as ‘Divine Farmer’. However, he is more like a mythical creature since his presence hasn’t been 100% confirmed.


The discoveries and evidence from the past, show that it is innate human nature to find escape in hallucinogens and physic drugs. Drug abuse has been a part of most of our history, some did it under the flag of religion while others called it magic.

Whatever they named it, the fact remains that the same drug abuse has been prevalent since ancient civilizations.

Aliens As Humans

Aliens As Humans; Unfolding A Brazilian Religion

By | articles | No Comments

Will you believe if we tell you aliens are for real and not only for real, they are even living among us on earth? It is absurd if you think about it scientifically but will it be still unbelievable if one’s religion has faith in it?

Religions have long been known to make people believe in things that they may not even consider if not for religion. This even created the bloodiest conflicts of history. One’s beliefs are the most beloved possession for them but every religion’s followers seem bloodthirsty of other religions. Same is happening with the members of Sunrise Valley in Brazil.

There is a religion whose followers believe themselves to be the incarnations of extraterrestrial beings.

Almost an hour outside Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, lies a Valley of the Dawn also called Sunrise Valley. The people living here are following a relatively new religion. The valley was established in 1959. Its founder was a mother of four children, Neiva Chaves Zelaya who is now known as Aunt Neiva.

The beginning

She worked as a truck driver when Brasilia was under construction until suddenly she started experiencing physic episodes. In the beginning, she had no idea what is happening to her but later she realized (how factors unknown) that these physic episodes are actually visits from spirits of aliens.

She declared later that she was guided by “Father White Arrow”, whose original name is Pai Seta Branca. There are many statues of Father White Arrow now in the Valley and he is believed to be a spirit emissary. His statues resemble with native South Americans.

The Core Belief

According to this religion, missionaries from outside Earth colonized our planet almost 32,000 years ago. They were directed by Pai Seta Branca. The religion challenges the very concept of human evolution by crediting these early aliens for our evolution from earlier species to Homo sapiens.

Pyramids of Egypt, stone megaliths of Easter Island, and technological constructions of Machu Picchu are some of the places or sites, which the members of Valley believe were built by their great extraterrestrial beings.

This religion believes in atoning the karmic debts from past lives through rituals. The believers are convinced that they will be able to manipulate space and time by the advent of the Third Millennium.

How it is Received

It is one of the fastest-growing religions in Brazil as it claimed to have 800,000 followers and 600 temples around the globe. Despite the fact that it is gaining followers throughout the world, it has not been received enthusiastically (just like any other new religion). The older and more powerful religions in Brazil, with Christianity in the lead, denounce it and label it as a cult. It is not new for whenever there has been a new system of beliefs or even a deviation from the prominent religions, the followers have given a tough time. The evangelicals are trying their best for conversions of the members of Valley.

Religion and Intolerance

Basically religious intolerance sprouts from religious manipulation. For religiously intolerant people beliefs of others are not important. They see beliefs other than theirs as false, blasphemous, offensive, and in some extreme cases worthy of incarceration.

It can be cruel and history is full of murders on this basis. It can even affect the society to a larger extent than being an individual matter. Intolerance has been fed to the masses by the system. They have used manipulation as a tool for many reasons, such as:

  • Desire to control
  • Power
  • Money
  • Silence opposition

However, the followers of Valley are paying no heed to any of this and they are continuously attempting to recruit more people. Valley members refer to themselves as mediums as they consider they are the newest form of incarnation; they call themselves Jaguars.

Some Interesting Things to Know

Flying saucers are a mystery to many of us but these people, they believe in flying saucers. This religion is a mixture of several practices from Afro-Brazilian religions, syncretism, mysticism, Christianity, ancient Egyptian beliefs and Spiritism.

Upon entering Sunrise Valley, the first impression feels like entering into some parallel world. Members can be seen wearing vibrant costumes. It gives away the effect of a sorcery world. You may be taken aback if you see a lady in green robes with stars sparkling on her outfit but here it is quite normal.

Roman saints, Indian chiefs, Afro-Brazilian orixas, Roman legionnaires, and several others were also re-casted as avatars if this new alien religion is considered. It dissolves the limits of nation, race, time, and place. If this religion is to be believed, then individual adherents are nothing and this whole world is a part of some cosmic drama.

End Note

Well, many are taking this religion as a threat because it negates what they have known and believed all their life. It is not about the contradictions of this new fait with existing religions and science, it is more about acceptance and allowing the freedom to choose.

Damsels As Fortune Hunters Who Distressed The Governments

What do you imagine when you hear ‘pirates’? One-eyed leather masked, bandanna wearing, thickly kohl eyes, beads around the neck, and probably a mustache and a beard bearing man, right? Now, this piece of writing is especially for you it will change your perspective and the next time you’ll hear someone say ‘pirate’ you may be able to take it as a gender-neutral term (which it is!).

Lioness of Brittany

In the midst of French and English war which took 100 years to end, there was a man named Olivier III de Clisson. He had a wife and five children, a happy family. He supported Edward 3 of England in the war. It was considered an act of treason by some and he was tried in the court by Philip VI of England and other noblemen.

Although he switched sides in 1342 and fought with France to defend Brittany the suspicions about his loyalty never faded. Olivier III de Clisson was found guilty and was hung, his head was chopped off to display at the post in order to make sure people see and learn. Charles de Blois was the one who fired up this trial even when Clisson fought by his side.

This is, however, not his story. This is a story of his wife Jeanne de Clisson, known as the Lioness of Brittany. When news of her husband’s execution reached Jeanne she was enraged and sworn revenge against both Charles de Blois and King Philip.

Full of vengeance, Jeanne raised a small army of men loyal to her. She funded her cause by selling off land remained to her after her husband. Her first attack was planned against the pro-French forces in Brittany. Then, when land became hostile for her she bought three warships and took to sea.

She was not only an enraged widow, she was a mastermind who knew how to play with the mind. She painted her warships black and their sails red. It worked well to intimidate her enemies. Due to the color, her warships are known as the ‘black feet’ in history.

She patrolled the English Channel hunting for a French ship. Soon she became the symbol of terror for French ships. Her wrath was gigantic against the ships owned by King Phillip and other French nobles. She was violent in her assault and her men were equally brutal.

When any French ship was captured, the entire crew was massacred. Her army used to spare one or two men from the entire crew only to carry the news that she has been successful again.

She fought for thirteen years and became a known name in the history of pirates. Finally, after thirteen years of battling, she found love again, remarried and embrace a quiet and peaceful life.

The Terror Of South China

It is a tale of a girl who with her courage and strength rose from rags to riches. This is not just a story of a girl who became rich, this story teaches about empowerment that comes from within. Ching Shih born in the Chinese province, Guangdong. She was not born with a silver spoon and was bound in circumstances that forced her to choose prostitution as a profession.

In 1801 pirate Zhèng Yi fell in love with her. Now, there are several theories about how they met but in the end, they got married eventually. Zhèng Yi had a fleet known as ‘red flag fleet’ which became the dynasty of Ching Shih. Their courtship was short and ended with the death of Zhèng Yi after six years only.

Ching Shih was involved in the matters of business and finance from the beginning which was highly uncommon back in those times. The fleet grew from 200 ships to 600 plus ships in six years and there were 50 to 70 thousand pirates in the fleet.

After her husband died, she had only two choices; to take charge or to go back to prostitution. She chose the first one and stayed on board. She became one of the most rigid pirate lords and launched several taxes and laws for her men. Every loot had to be registered before distribution. The ship from the fleet which looted would keep 20% and the rest would be added in the collective fund.

She was extremely strict when it came to unfaithfulness and rape. These two crimes had no tolerance and a pirate was executed if guilty. However, they were allowed to marry female captives. Apart from the ones which were married to pirates, other female captives were released unscathed.

Her fleet was color-coded; the first ship always had red flag then there were yellow, green, black, blue, and white (in no particular order). This color-coded fleet became popular for the severity of laws it had for its own pirates. Disloyal and other criminals would face violent punishments such as quartering and flogging.

According to some, she was a smuggler of opium while others stress that she restricted herself to looting, taxing the coastal villagers, and robbing. She became undefeatable, from British to Portuguese to Chinese all naval ships lost to the red flag fleet. She was known as the ‘terror of South China’.

Her reign over the sea became too much to bear for Chinese authorities and they offered amnesty to the pirates only in hopes to free the sea from Ching Shih. However, the second in command of red flag fleet, Chang Pao was met with a deadlock in conversation with an official over the reserves of loot. The female terror once more took charge and struck a successful deal, she was allowed to keep all her loot.

The Chinese government wanted to pirate to kneel down in front of the officials but to make Ching Shih kneel down an official had to witness the marriage of Ching Shih and Chang Pao. The marriage also officially ended her career and she resorts to a calmer life as an owner of a gambling house.

Magic and Gender Roles in Ancient World

By | articles, Uncategorized | No Comments

For most of us, when we hear the word ‘magic’ we think of sparkling wands and rabbits coming out of hats. In reality, however, these are mere tricks used to entertain people. Magic is not something that people practice to entertain nor is it a stunt that the public would laugh at or enjoy.

The word ‘magique’ crept into English dictionary from French in the late 1300s. Majority of the definitions of this practice revolve around a single notion that it uses natural forces that are hidden otherwise.

Dark magic was practiced even in the ancient times but truth and lies are often mingled when it comes to history. It is difficult to unravel the complete truth since so much time has passed and the intentional secrecy around some facts makes it even tougher.

Historians from the 19th and 20th century were glorifying the Greeks and Romans so much that they deliberately kept their ugly truths very low-key. Anything contrasting their idealized view of these two civilizations was very efficiently brushed under the carpet.

One of the practices by Romans and Greeks that were intentionally never openly talked about was magic. The practice was widespread in the ancient Mediterranean but it was smartly skipped out. Today, however despite the forced discreetness, it is a legitimate area of study. The study of ancient magic practice reveals deep and dark secrets related to culture and social practices woven into ancient belief systems.

Magic was treated exactly in the same way as it is today; it was banned, punished, and was considered a taboo, even in ancient times, but it thrived no matter what! Historic findings show that the government or authorities ignored the power it held back then (despite condemning it).


Role of Women


Since women were destined to have a passive role in these ancient civilizations; there is far fewer evidence of them actively pursuing enchantments. Lack of evidence for women brought men into the limelight and it became one of the major reasons that magic has been hushed out by historians.

Roman and Greek men are glorified so much for their athletics and power games that there was no way for historians to think of them succumbing to magic. Men from both civilizations were depicted as warriors and knights in shiny armors which took away the realness from them to some extent.


Prevalence of Violence


Another noticeable thing in these spells is the language used. The spells are brutal and vehement and lack any sense of remorse. In the modern world, the words used are nightmarish, for instance, the spell inscribed on the tablet found with Louvre-doll.

It reads:

“Lead Ptolemais, whom Aias bore, the daughter of Horigenes, to me. Prevent her from eating and drinking until she comes to me, Sarapammon, whom Area bore, and do not allow her to have experience with another man, except me alone. Drag her by her hair, by her guts, until she does not stand aloof from me … and until I hold her obedient for the whole time of my life, loving me, desiring me, and telling me what she is thinking.”

There is hardly an indication of any emotion which can be related to love in such spells. These spells sound like seeking control and domination rather than asking for love. This points out towards the sexuality and gender roles in ancient times.
Since the subjects are mostly females hence, no repentance showed. It clearly is evident that men seeking women to show power and strength. It also shows that females were considered as the objects or possessions and were tried to be persuaded without consent (a tradition that never died).




The spells which involve doll-making were also popular. These dolls depicted the object of desire which in most of the cases were women (being treated as objects since centuries) who might be unaware or resistant to their admirers. Literature has been found which have instructions on how to make enchanted dolls, what should be said over it, and where and how it should be deposited.

It is a form of sympathetic magic which is an enchantment operating on the lines of ‘like effects like’. When a doll is used in sympathetic magic, spell-caster believes that whatever has been done to the doll physically or psychically, affects the human it is representing in the same way.

The most notorious and well-preserved voodoo doll in antiquity is “Louvre-doll” dating back to 4th century AD. This doll is a female in kneeling position, hand and legs bound, and pierced with thirteen needles. It is made up of unbaked clay and was found in Egypt in a terracotta jar.

This figurine was found, accompanying a spell, inscribed on the lead tablet. The spell refers to a woman named Ptolemais and the one, who cast the spell or paid for it, is referred to as Sarapammon. The spell has been mentioned already and it is enough to get an idea about what value was given to women.

The enchanted text merely shows how badly sarapammon wanted Ptolemais without even considering once about her choices that he was even willing to cause her pain. Like several other discoveries, the ones related to magic also depicts the sad state of women in antiquity.




There are two spells in Greek Magical Papyri which relate to the female same-sex desire. One spell dates back to second century AD called the gods Anubis and Hermes to bind Serapis (name of a woman) to Herais (name of another woman, who cast the spell).

The second spell, dated to third or fourth century AD, is again aggressively stating:

“Burn, set on fire, inflame her soul, heart, liver, spirit with love for Sophia, whom Isara bore, she, surrendered like a slave, giving herself and all her possessions to her, because this is the will and command of the great god.”
The same-sex spells cast a light on the desire among women in antiquity but there is no reference to whether these relationships were disregarded or tolerated?

The chances of it being acceptable are meek and maybe, this is the reason that magical help was taken. However, this is very less proof to know how same-sex relationships were looked at. The chauvinistic approach is loud and clear through whatever remains have been unearthed until now.


Most Common Magic In Past Civilizations


One of the most popular forms of magic were erotic spells. Yes, you read it right! One would think that those power-driven, control freak males would use magical charms to fulfill their hunger to seek greater influence but no! What they used spells for? Erotic love! And to assert their rule over the opposite gender.

There were professional magic practitioners who charged fees for their enchanted services. They used to make magical dolls, which are sometimes referred to as poppets, wrote charms, and even directed curses against love rivals.


Evident Male Dominance


Most evidence shows men as practitioners of magic and clients. Literature also shows that to practice magic one needs to be literate and women were mostly illiterate and didn’t have free access to any formal education. The sources are scarce when it comes to women in magic. Females were not allowed to roam freely or meet a lot of people which further limited their exposure to magic.

It is another example of the rigid system followed in ancient times where male dominance was applauded and females were given the passive role. Apart from the obvious gender roles many aspects of this secret enchantment business remain unearthed to date.


Greek Magical Papyri


There is a lot of archeological evidence available to attest the practice of magic in ancient times. Literature and spellbooks have been found from both Greece and
Rome. The Middle East and Egypt were not far behind, the literature dating back to ancient people from these regions, also proved the practice of magic.

There is even a collection of spells compiled from Graeco-Roman Egypt, known as the Greek Magical Papyri. The sources in this collection date back from the second century BC to fifth century AD. The large portion of this spell collection is dedicated to spells of attraction which are directed at, you guessed it!


What is the deal with Planet X or Nibiru?

By | articles | No Comments

Why is everyone so scared to talk about it? Why do we never get to see this being discussed on elitist mainstream media?

Why don’t we hear about it often on popular media when internet and social media (including scientific publications, blogs, and videos) is filled with content regarding this mysterious celestial body, trying to decipher and understand every innate detail of this planet? The question is whether this planet is really hypothetical as we are made to believe?

With this article, we are not assuredly saying that we are 100% sure that Planet X or Nibiru (also referred to as Planet 9). Neither is the purpose of article to present you with so-called ‘authentic’ scientific data or observations to totally refute the possibility of Planet X. All we want to do is open a discussion and lay down some information and facts on this controversial planet that may or may not completely alter the face of the earth and forever change or end the human life as we know it.

So what is Planet X?
Planet X, also known as Planet Nine or Nibiru, is the possible ninth planet beyond Neptune in our solar system. Since Pluto is no longer considered a ‘planet’ by definition, to date scientific community or NASA keep trying to push away the idea of Planet X existing.

As per NASA, this is a ‘Hypothetical Planet X’ [1] in their list of planets on their page about Solar System Exploration and considers only 8 (eight) primary planets from Mercury to Neptune. Even though there has been a lot of buzz in the scientific and academic community about this planet existing, the general view that is presented to the common population is that we should not think about this Planet X. Even if we ignore the traditional Mayan and Sumerian knowledge on this subject found from extensive archaeological work and thorough study about their texts, we can’t simply refuse all the scientific studies and observations/experience of many people about this mysterious Planet.

Nibiru is the ‘Sumerian for 12th Planet’ [2]. It could be said that this Nibiru planet came first to light from a linguist and ancient astronauts’ expert, Zecharia Sitchin in 1976. According to his book which was based on his work studying old Babylonian and Mesopotamian texts, he claimed that ‘Nibiru is inhabited by an alien race called the Anunnaki, who are referred to in the Bible as the Nephilim.’ [3] He has suggested that the Anunnaki previously came to Earth long time back looking for minerals and gold and they created humans as a slave race by mixing their DNA to do the work. Amongst other claims, he stated that ‘Nibiru has an elongated orbit around the Sun, which takes 3,600 years [2].’

This theory or similar versions have been propagated and believed by many people today. A popular name amongst these on the internet is that of Nancy Lieder who had slightly different association with Nibiru. She put forth the idea for Nibiru cataclysm in 1995 where she claimed that this Nibiru planet would either hit the Earth or it will pass close-by, resulting in horrific events for the Earth and human life.

NANCY LIEDER – Planet X Pole Shift Nibiru is Now Inbound

Although she has initially claimed that such an event was going to happen in 2003, but according to Wikipedia and Zetatalk (Nancy’s website), she said ‘it was merely a “white lie … to fool the establishment.” She refused to disclose the true date, saying that to do so would give those in power enough time to declare martial law and trap people in cities during the shift, leading to their deaths.’

This shift mentioned above is the Cataclysmic pole shift theory that is supported by people with huge followings. This refers to the relative change in position of geographical location of Earth’s poles and its axis of rotation which will get affected drastically by (close) encounter with Planet X or Nibiru, creating havoc for human life on Earth.

One of the leading voices regarding this is David Icke who has got very detailed explanations on this subject and why the world elites and establishment does not want to tell the world population about this impending interaction of Earth with Planet X.

Check out this very fascinating YouTube video titled ‘Planet X Inbound -Affecting Earth Wobble -Pole Shift Accelerating

Other people with popular insights include the likes of David Meade, who linked the wrongly interpreted Mayan prediction of 2012, to Nibiru cataclysm. Although his timelines (in 2012 and 2017) keep changing about Planet X colliding and magnetic forces of earth affecting the core of our planet, in future, he does provide some very interesting reasoning and explanations that why this thing is real. For more information on his views, you can check out his book Planet X – The 2017 Arrival.

In 2012, when the end of a ‘period’ in Mayan calendar was wrongly considered by some people out there to be the end of the world, NASA around that time refuted the claims absolutely. You can their read feature from 2012 published on NASA website about this prediction. [4]

People associating Nibiru cataclysm with Mayan 2012 phenomenon were wrong but is NASA right to completely reject the other point of views. Can it be that some parts of those theories may hold true? Is it possible that differing voices (against mainstream media and governments) know that something like Planet X exists and is real, but may not have entirely decoded the facts of this mysterious planet?

In Part 2 of this blog, we will tell you about new scientific studies in the past few years that show with significant certainty that the possibility of Planet Nine or Planet X is real based on solid evidence. Even NASA, hasn’t been able to refuse these studies and have been calling this ‘Hypothetical Planet’ when initially they called it outright hoax. Isn’t that just amazing that they would make us believe that beyond Neptune, there is no celestial body like a major planet that can impact human life like never before?

Stay tuned for the Part 2 with amazing evidence and infographics giving you all the technical facts about recent scientific studies.

What is alchemy? Alchemy comes from the Arabic al-kīmiyā, a synonym of al-iksir (elixir), and was thought to mean something akin to, “The process and means by which something is obtained or changed.” This definition holds true today.

While originally a protoscience (precursor to an academically approved science), alchemy is now part of a global lexicon that serves people in their pursuits of individuation, self-empowerment, and embodiment of the light.

When choosing to become an alchemist, you are saying you believe yourself to be in service of the light, in pursuit of understanding and healing your shadows, and on a path that seeks to up-level and heal humanity.

If we believe ourselves to be representative of the universe, born of light and stardust, and with unlimited potential, then it is quite possible that we can change our hearts, minds, and physical realities. It is in this way that each of us might be an alchemist.


― William H. Gass, A Temple of Texts

The Light Beyond The Stars

Zep Tep, meaning “first time,” is an ancient Egyptian phrase. It refers to an age that occurred over 12,000 years ago when divine beings came through the eternal void to educate and enlighten primitive humans inhabiting the earth at that time.

While well-intending human beings contaminated the original teachings, this ancient, timeless, angelic download is known as the pre-foundation of modern alchemy. To the champions and disciples of what is also known as “the way,” alchemy is a seraphic gift from light beings who descended from beyond the stars.


All of life is interconnected. Our minds are the galaxies, our fingers and toes are the planets, and our organs are the stars that bring us light and life. We are each an embodiment of the universe, and therefore have the power to improve our lives, conditions, and environments at every turn.

We achieve these things through prayer and meditation, healing and nutritional remedies, and clear and intentional activities. These are the premises behind esoteric or spiritual alchemy, as distinct from those seeking to make gold, known as exoteric, the obsolete branch of alchemy.

Before Chemistry, Islam, and Christianity, there was Alchemy, a system of pre-science assumptions, beliefs, elixirs, processes, and traditions that purported to heal the sick, transform personal relationships, remove mental afflictions, turn metals into gold, change the dynamics of political power, grow allegiances, open hearts, co-create miracles, and even kill. Alchemy was a catch-all for how to gain control of life and its many foes and challenges.

Originally based on what are now widely considered to be disproven scientific principles, the whole of alchemy remains a beautifully woven fabric of fascinating, illuminating, and transformative ideas derived from magic, physics, mythology, art, astrology, and a variety of religions.

Even though portions of early alchemy are antiquated (and slightly funny), what some academics seem to have forgotten is that Sir Isaac Newton, often recognized as one of history’s most influential scientists (and the master of gravity and calculus), utilized Alchemy to understand the physical world and develop some of his most profound laws, theorems, principles, and algorithms. Even though he also dabbled in junk “science,” Newton thought highly of all branches of alchemical sciences and considered himself a student, if not an embodiment of its tenets.

If you remove the disproven principals from early alchemy, the result is a profound, productive, and experiential ideology based in the idea that as conscious, living beings, existing in three-dimensional space, we have the ability to represent and embody the universe, and in so doing, effect change in our lives, and in the lives of the those we love and serve.

In Paulo Coelho’s highly acclaimed book, The Alchemist, he writes:



Alchemy is widely practiced in our modern world, yet generally misunderstood. While once considered science, it now functions within the categories of mysticism, the new age, and transpersonal psychology.

While some see alchemy as antithetical to science and possibly the work of the devil, a growing population has come to understand alchemy as an effective pathway to personal growth, empowerment, and transformation. Carl Jung was a passionate alchemist and he used alchemical methodologies to heal his patients.


– Carl Jung

Jung helped his patients accept and address the contents of their subconscious, even the things that could bring about darkness, shame, and fear.


All of alchemy is drenched in secrets, ciphers, and symbolism, the derivatives of which are used by sufis, pagans, new agers, scientists, and alchemists alike. While the mystery of ciphers and symbols cannot be covered within this one article, ciphers and cryptic symbolism are at the foundation of early life on this planet, and have been used by brilliant leaders, writers, priests, shamans, healers, doctors, and psychologists throughout time.

What is a cipher? A cipher is a disguised style of writing, used to prevent the reader from fully understanding what he or she is reading. Cryptic symbolism refers to the use of secret signs, designs, icons, and messages hidden within delicate and precarious manuscripts. The word cryptic comes from the Greek and was first used to describe the vault beneath a church where dead people were buried. If something is cryptic, it’s serious, secret, and hidden.

Alchemists are famous for their secrets. Secret codes, secret symbols, and secret methodologies. Some alchemists chose a variety of methods to protect themselves and their families from government and religious persecution. Others felt that their ideas were sacred and should not be shared with the general population. The codes, ciphers, and symbols protected everyone involved, along with all of their rites, rituals, and ideas.

The use of secrecy methods helped to create a hidden society and a pathway to membership. If you knew the codes, ciphers or symbols, then you probably knew someone in the tribe. This would have given you the ability to request entrance and initiation.

The extended list of the original alchemical symbols includes: earth, air, water, fire, salt, mercury, sulfur, copper, silver, philosopher’s stone, gold, iron, antimony, tin, platinum, lead, arsenic, phosphorus, bismuth, magnesium, zinc, potassium carbonate. Some say this list was the beginning of the periodic table, but these symbols have deeper meanings that are intrinsic to the ancient rituals and ideology embedded in alchemy’s history and traditions.

Alchemist symbols can be mapped to Carl Jung’s analysis of the anatomy of the subconscious. Many of the symbols and their derivatives are signposts in Jung’s journey toward individuation.

Jung would say that the psyche could not be understood intellectually, and only through images or symbols. According to Jung, it’s in this way that the symbols of alchemy are a roadmap to self-discovery.


Partly based in The Hermetic principles (and associated with the Rosicrucian brotherhood), and with a history steeped in Hellenistic Egyptian ideology, alchemy is rich in science, tradition, culture, and mythology. At several junctures in the earth’s history, it took courage to be an alchemist.

Here is a short list of some of the most notable alchemists throughout time. Each have a unique perspective on the principles of alchemy.

Please note that this is a partial list provided strictly to help the reader initiate their own research. While this list is neither comprehensive or complete, it’s a great place to start and covers a broad spectrum of alchemists from several continents and time periods.



For some, alchemy offers a workable ideology and practical solution to alleviating fear, sadness, conflicts, and pain.

To be an alchemist means you enjoy using words, writing, incantations, rituals, intentions, and right action to heal yourself and coax reality into fulfilling your heartfelt desires.

According to the basic tenets of alchemy, if we engage in thoughtful, prayerful and love-based intentional action, we can create, promote, help, heal, and enhance our lives in myriad ways, including:

Stanford researchers have devised a method of splitting hydrogen and oxygen from seawater to generate clean fuel. Their profound invention presents an extraction method for an alternative energy source to fossil fuels and the most efficient electrolysis technique yet.

In the past, water-splitting devices needed to be fed purified water, as negatively charged chloride from saltwater will corrode the positive electrode in the system. Unfortunately, purifying saltwater from the ocean is also incredibly energy intensive, making traditional electrolysis impractical.

But by coating the positive electrode with negatively charged layers of nickel-iron hydroxide and nickel sulfide atop a nickel foam core, the team was able to slow the system’s decay. This allowed for longer periods of electrolysis, producing practical amounts of hydrogen that can then be used as a clean fuel source. Their multi-layered device was able to split water for about 1000 hours compared to the typical 12 hours of traditional devices.

Hongjie Dai and his students tested their device with water from the San Francisco Bay, pointing to California as a place that has a significant lack of clean water on top of high energy consumption. But while they’ve developed this new, proficient method, they say they don’t have any plans to scale the technology, instead leaving that to manufacturers in the industry.

The electrolysis device Hongjie Dai and team built


They also said they could foresee the use of this technology as a method for generating breathable oxygen underwater for submarines or divers, allowing them to stay underwater for longer periods without surfacing.

Though still in its nascent phase, hydrogen fuel-cell cars have become commercially available and many cities have implemented similar engines in their public transport. But these vehicles typically get their hydrogen from natural gas where, once again, the cost is high and investment in filling stations is low.

But with Dai and team’s device, that hydrogen can now be extracted from water straight out of the ocean, eliminating the need to drill down into the ground and produce excessive emissions. And as an added benefit, burning hydrogen to power a vehicle doesn’t produce any carbon emissions, instead it simply discharges water.

But the big question seems to be whether this comes at a time when there’s still enough public interest in the technology as a viable transportation option, especially with the recent explosion of investment in electric vehicles. At least with a hydrogen powered car, you wouldn’t have to wait hours for your electric vehicle to charge, and you’d still be helping the environment.

And then, of course, there’s always the question of whether the oil and gas industry will embrace this technology or try to suppress investment in its development like it tends to do with other alternative fuel sources.

Is the technology just in time or too little too late?

Crashing waves. The thump of a palm against a taut drum skin. The wail of a new born baby.Sound is our tether to the present, to one another, and to our deep and ancient sense of the world. Throughout the ages, ancient sound technology, created through voice, instruments, and the natural world has provided healing and spiritual connection.

Every ancient civilization is based on the belief of the sanctity that is sound, from the Old Testament’s verse, “and God saidlet there be light,” to the meditative ohm of the Hindu tradition; sound represents a spiritual significance that is essential to the human relationship to nature, self, and one another.

The first ancient people known to use sound as a healing power are the indigenous people of northern Australia. The ancient culture created a kind of sound healing, expressed through the didgeridoo, or its ancient name, the yidaki. Made from fallen eucalyptus branches hollowed out by termites, the didgeridoo is considered to be the oldest wind instrument, dating back more than 40,000 years. Used in ceremonial rituals and for its healing properties, the didgeridoo was also a way to communicate across far distances due to the unique sound waves which are believed to be able to be heard through the earth. The low frequencies produced by the didgeridoo are thought to heal, help with mobility, and open up energetic flows.

“He who knows the secret of the sound knows the mystery of the whole universe” – Hazrat Inayat Khan

North American indigenous cultures incorporated “reciprocal participation” in their tribal ceremonies with a complex and interconnected musical exchange that ranged across nations and tribes. Used for ritualistic purposes, creative expression, and healing, making and sharing music has always been central to Native American daily life. But while drums, flutes, and other percussive instruments play an important role, the human voice is considered to be the most important instrument.

According to the American Indian Heritage Foundation (AIHF), “ [u]nusual, irregular rhythms and a somewhat off-key style of singing is used. No harmony is ever incorporated, although sometimes many people sing at once, and other times the vocals are solo. The Native American vocals are passionate, used to invoke spirits, ask for rain or healing, or are used to heal the sick.” AIHF states that “many researchers feel that Native American music is some of the most complex ever performed. The tensing and releasing of the vocals combined with varying drum beats makes it a very intricate form of art.

In ancient Egypt, seven vowels served as sacred sounds, creating a strong euphony, or harmonic convergence. In addition to the human voice, Egyptian high priestesses played the sistrum in ceremonies, a kind of rattle with metal discs attached to it that generated an “ultrasound” to enhance healing, and which is still in use today. The ancient Egyptians believed so strongly in the power and sanctity of sound that there are no vowels present in their written language of hieroglyphics.

Ancient Greece gave birth to what we refer to as music therapy. Pythagoras, who most know as the father of mathematics, and the founder of the Pythagoras Mystery School, is also believed to have discovered musical intervals.

He wrote, “each celestial body, in fact each and every atom, produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having its own function and character, contributes to the whole,” creating what Syrian philosopher Iamblichus referred to as “musical medicine.”

Similar to the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Greeks built healing chambers designed for “dream sleep,” which also incorporated the therapeutic use of reverberant surfaces and parallel-facing stone walls, as well as musical instruments.

Vocal chanting is also prominent in ancient Chinese and Tibetan cultures, with intricate variations to positively impact physical well-being, psychological health, and spiritual mastery. Beyond the human voice, Tibetan singing bowls have been used for centuries for healing and brainwave stimulation. They’ve been likened to “the sound of the universe” unfolding. Lastly, Tibetan gongs encompass the entire audible sound spectrum, considered to have a positive effect on overall cellular health.


As evidenced by the importance that sound played in ancient cultures, in pre-Christian times, the Tritone, an imperfect harmonic interval, was considered to be the pathway to understanding the world. But according to Richard Merrick, “with the fall of Rome, Christianity became politicized by emperor Constantine and ‘pagan’ knowledge of harmony in nature was forbidden. This was even legislated by Church law and enforced by the Inquisition, and for hundreds of years harmonic knowledge was pushed underground.”

Despite, or in response to this prohibition, interest in ancient sound technology flourished throughout the ages. In fact, a number of famous historical figures believed in and practicedCymatics, the study of “sound and vibration made visible, typically on the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane.”

Leonardo Da Vinci observed and wrote about dust that formed specific shapes depending on vibrational levels: “I say then that when a table is struck in different places the dust that is upon it is reduced to various shapes of mounds and tiny hillocks.” Galileo Galilei wrote about using a chisel to scrape a brass plate and observing a “long row of fine streaks, parallel and equidistant from one another,” thought to be caused by the sound vibrations.

Most famously, German musician and scientist Ernst Chladni of the mid-1700s and creator of the“Chladni Figures,” discovered that geometric patterns could be made through the stroke of a violin bow against a brass plate filled with sand, one of the most important milestones in the field of acoustics.

Interestingly enough, the Rosslyn Chapel of Scotland (built in the 15th century) the Rosslyn cubes, cymatic geometric designs placed throughout the chapel’s ceiling, resembled Chladni’s figures, and led many to believe that ancient sounds were indeed inscribed directly into the surface of the chapel’s interior. Composers Thomas and Stuart Mitchell spent two decades decoding the mysterious cubes into the “Rosslyn Motet.”

Into the 20th and 21st centuries, the fascination with sound technology has continued. As recounted by Dr. Kathy J. Forti, Nikola Tesla experimented with “acoustic sound waves which started an earthquake in the building of his New York City laboratory. He recounted how the beams in the building started to shake as if their molecular structure was being affected.” Physicist Mary Desiree Waller expanded on Chladni’s work through her book, Chladni Figures, a Study in Symmetry which was published in 1961 and included mathematical equations explaining the earlier sound technology for modern scientific acoustic students. Most recently, English acoustic engineer John Stuart Reid conducted cymatics research in the Great Pyramid in 1997, which studied the resonant and healing effects of granite, the material used to build sarcophagi.


It’s believed that reverberance or sonic levitation was utilized to build places of worship and burial spaces such as the pyramids. Abul Hasan Ali Al-Masudi, 10th century Arab geographer and historian who was known as the “Herodotus of the Arabs,” wrote about a magic papyrus believed to be placed under a stone that when struck with a metal rod would create a vibrational moving path.

There exist modern accounts of Tibetan monks using their deep chants and sacred instruments to move boulders and seem to confirm the belief that the power of sound, amplified by a large number of people, could create vibration powerful enough to levitate large and heavy objects.Swedish engineer Olaf Alexanderson writes of an eyewitness account in which “priests of the far east…were able to lift heavy boulders up high mountains with the help of groups of various sounds… the knowledge of the various vibrations in the audio range demonstrates to a scientist of physics that a vibrating and condensed sound field can nullify the power of gravitation.”

Almost no ancient architectural plans exist and legend recounts that monoliths and megaliths were thought to have been built by scores of slave labor. But according to Stephen Wagner, “in almost every culture where megaliths exist…a legend also exists that the huge stones were moved by acoustic means—either by the chanted spells of magicians, by song, by striking with a magic wand or rod (to produce acoustic resonance), or by trumpets, gongs, lyres, cymbals or whistles.”


In 2005, Stephanie Rosenbloom reported in The New York Times that “a new kind of sound therapy…has begun to attract a following.” She sites vibrational medicine, use of ancient tools such as Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, and a “return to ancient cultural practices.” Sound technology is now integrated into treatment for cancer, strokes, pain management, mental well-being, stress reduction, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

In 2019, MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory published results of a study which found “strobe lights and a low pitched buzz can be used to recreate brain waves lost in the disease, which in turn remove plaque and improve cognitive function in mice engineered to display Alzheimer’s-like behavior.” One of the researchers reported that “when we combine visual and auditory stimulation for a week, we see the engagement of the prefrontal cortex and a very dramatic reduction of amyloid.”

Beyond the medical community’s adoption of sound technology into research and treatment, it appears that a new generation of acoustic science thought and tools are emerging. The CymaScope, a “scientific instrument that makes sound visible” developed in 2002, is impacting all scientific fields and recently breakthrough in the field of dolphin language research and in Mereon research, an energy pattern that may lie at the heart of creation.

From science research labs, hospitals, to healing centers and yoga studios, the consensus is that modern sound technologies, which contain a multitude of ways to soothe, calm, and heal, owe a debt of gratitude to the ancestral lineage from which they were born.

The days of scientists dismissing all signs of life on the Martian surface as pareidolia or just a trick of shadows may be over, as a statistically significant majority of 70 scientists agree they’ve identified evidence of life on the red planet.

According to a paper published in the Journal of Astrobiology, as well as the consortium of believing scientists, the Mars Curiosity Rover seems to have photographed evidence of life on Mars in the form of algae, lichens, and fungi.

In addition to a number of pictures showing these prokaryotes and eukaryotes seeming to thrive on the surface of Martian rocks, other photos depict what appear to be fungi growing on the rover itself.

The evidence supports a number of hypotheses that these types of “puff-balls,” or fungal organisms would be able to survive the Martian atmosphere, despite exposure to intense space radiation and harsh atmospheric conditions.


Though this information is just now being released to the public, other scientists are claiming they identified equaling compelling evidence decades ago detected by the 1976 Viking mission, yet for some reason NASA still didn’t equip subsequent missions with the proper tools to test for life. And despite the substantial photographic evidence of this life, the only way to truly prove whether it’s living is to sample it and send it back to Earth for testing.


“There are no geological or other abiogenic forces on Earth which can produce sedimentary structures, by the hundreds, which have mushroom shapes, stems, stalks, and shed what looks like spores on the surrounding surface,” said the study’s lead author Dr. Regina Dass of the Department of Microbiology at India’s School of Life Sciences. “In fact, fifteen specimens were photographed by NASA growing out of the ground in just three days!”

Dass and team also argued that there are fluctuations in methane levels on the ground as well as in the Martian atmosphere that vary between seasons, much like methane fluctuations seen on Earth. 90 percent of that methane is the direct result of living organisms.

NASA denies the assertion that these photos are proof of living organisms, calling into question the validity of the journal making the claims. Instead the administration says the photos simply depict minerals like hematite.

But if this scientific consortium is correct and there are basic life forms able to survive Mars’ hostile atmosphere, how they ended up on the red planet is a bit of a mystery.

Considering that certain cyanobacteria and fungi have been observed to survive the vacuum of space and cosmic radiation, some believe these microorganisms on Mars may have come from Earth, either blasted from meteorite impacts or having caught a ride with one of the rovers.

And then there’s also the other hypothesis that says they could be remnants of an ancient civilization that once resided on Mars, before some cataclysmic event turned the planet into the inhospitable rock it is today. At least that’s what remote viewers working for the CIA claim they saw.

Former Polish President Lech Wałęsa, gave a speech this week in which he warned of the potential threat of an alien invasion. Wałęsa served as the country’s president from 1990 to 1995 and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983.

Though he hasn’t served in government for almost 25 years, Wałęsa showed he still knew how to capture the media’s attention when he decided to discuss the hot button topic and his belief that an invasion may be imminent in a meeting at a civic club.

During the colorful speech, Wałęsa argued for what he believed were three levels of intellectual development in the cosmos, with humans unfortunately residing at the bottom.

It’s unclear whether Wałęsa was simply using the topic of extraterrestrials as a partisan talking point, or whether he may have some actual knowledge of their existence, though it seems the former is more likely, as he expressed his apparent disdain for certain global leaders.

“What are they doing here?” he said. “If we threaten destabilization (…) Putin, they will interrupt us, cut us in half, the land will collapse, we will all crush us.”

Unfortunately, full translations of the retired politician’s speech aren’t readily available, but one excerpt gives insight into some of Wałęsa’s extraterrestrial beliefs, including vague references to what might be construed as the work of Zecharia Sitchin or Erich von Däniken.

“The higher civilization can hold us that way for five thousand years. They will send Adam and Eve and we will build the world again,” he said.

“People find things, dig in stones, these pyramids … no answer, where did it come from?”

He also made mention of his belief that there have been a number of civilizations in our history that have reached current levels of technological advancement, but which suffered the fate he says he believes modern civilization is currently facing – collapse due to war and a lack of peaceful communication.

Wałęsa certainly isn’t the first public official whose belief in extraterrestrial intelligence has aroused interest (as well as ridicule) in the media. In the U.S., Florida congresswoman Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera made headlines multiple times for her claim that she was abducted by tall blonde alien entities when she was a child.

And of course, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid continues to espouse his conviction that the UFO phenomenon is real and worth investigating seriously.

But others are skeptical when world leaders and politicians begin speaking of alien invasion, or extraterrestrial technology in general, as they fear a false flag alien attack may be used to enforce a nefarious global agenda. Could Wałęsa be a provocateur in this grand conspiracy or is he genuinely concerned for humanity?
