The A∴A∴ is now in a Period of Silence.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

As of April 8th An CVII, 2010 e.v. We have entered a period of Silence for five years. Those who will to become Probationer of the A∴A∴. and beyond must wait until April 8th, 2015 e.v. to enter the Hallways of our Ancient and most Holy Sanctuary.

Behold, we bid you fare well until then; and the doors of Our Holy Order are closed for five years; and let all those upon the entrance into our next period of Speech be then welcome once again, and may the flame of your spiritual aspiration burn strong and pure.

Work with those documents that We have freely given showing true aspiration and sublime meditation. It is not written that for those who soul is pure the blessed Immortals are swift to come?.

The A∴A∴. is a Spiritual Organization which does not exist on the physical plane. Our Manifesto is ONE STAR IN SIGHT which clearly announces with sublime clarity the Will of the Great White Brotherhood.

Scientific Illuminism as a key to the next step in evolution.

written by David Bersson

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

The purpose of this article is for those who have perceived in the past confusion of the work going on in our laboratories confuse our applications of the method of science with the aim of religion or reveal for the first time some insights that might have been previously overlooked as an introduction from one researcher in this now controversial, thought provoking challenge to everything you considered possible as We move forth transforming the very planet with the razor sharp sword of Scientific Illuminism. We would assume that those editions of the Equinox would of already been read & studied to avoid confusion from the otherwise unique deviation of approach perpetuated in the implications of this tract. I state this so all those who follow this work, and actually grasp it all as a real path of science know how vital it is to keep in touch with the reality of the evolutionary process on all planes of geometry. Moreover, parapsychology and folklore are certainly involved, and the concept of magick set forth in postulate by that brother from Cambridge that we all know & respect has been and is a matter of public display for quite some time. This essay will give another stance that is meant to open the minds of would be scientists in the community that would - rather than join forces with us, write us off as romantic rebels in the world of parapsychology and let this block of mind hinder them from studying carefully those textbooks which have already been created in the various classes. How dare we create a class A document & call it supernal without those standardized methods that are known to the ivy league community? Well, we could equally counter such objections by wondering how they could read themselves to verify themselves, and read nothing from us to be so sure that their judgments are so readily accurate? Any scientific thinker is going to realize that uninformed opinion is absolutely worthless without the adjustment of the gathering of the facts, and applying the method of science properly with experimentation to reach any conclusions that would hold water in a civilized debate. Do not confuse civilized debate with the stinking corpse of argument, of course. We venture to emphasize that civilized debate will make both parties leave the discussion equally fulfilled that each party has not wasted each others time. A concept so radical as to instigate an FBI investigation if they follow John F. Kennedy's paranoid perspective on secret societies! Yet I would end this first paragraph with a tongue in the cheek stab to the right knowing how worried Government becomes when they have fallen so far behind the work of the private enterprise of independent scientists working on questionable experiments that might endanger the planet into possible chaos. Of course, they haven't actually bothered to ask those involved what is really going on, nor can they be sure if they are right trying to judge which science is really the one that is truly dangerous or wasteful from the perspective of evolution.

Picture if you will, the Neanderthal seeing that Gods were beginning to appear in the area. Visualize the Neanderthal father giving his daughter to one of these Gods. He wouldn't of understood or known them as homo sapien - only that whatever they were they were a very efficient tribe, possibly of the Gods Themselves. Yet with the disappearance of the last of the Neanderthal none of them would of understood, know what occurred, and surely the most intelligent of them would of feared or felt fascination at their ancient world turned completely upside down by a species that was able to defeat them in spite of them being weaker in strength & smaller in stature. Although we cannot state for sure how those who were aware of their overthrow were reacting we do have scientific proof that their DNA is in human beings, and those who possess it have a strong immune system. We do know that the homo sapiens would have been as incomprehensible as the next species after homo sapien will be. We might even go so far as to state that no one human can understand what we are to evolve into. Anymore than a Neanderthal could understand a homo sapien.

The science of evolution by Darwin is of course a monument of his genius, certainly any intelligent person can logically perceive the sheer clarity of perception that was expounded when he explained natural selection. We are not debating Darwin's theory here at all. Having seen the clarity of it we can move on to see if the science of Darwinism is useful for the science of discovering what a human being will become evolving from homo sapien to the next species. Well, you'll find nothing Darwin has written about what the future of humanity would be for he looked at the past, and not the future. Well now, if we perceive this subject for the future do We not have a brand new science???

A careless thinker might raise his argumentative forefinger, and say. Aha, this person has already stated that no one human can perceive the next species. Of course, I worded it in the form to metaphor to bushwhack that hypothetical dog of reason right from the start.

We need to firstly consider how the method of science & experimentation should be outlined. Can we properly deduce from past observations of the evolutionary process what we could scientifically concentrate on to actually kick the next species into gear? If natural selection does not exist can evolution actually occur again? Are we therefore stuck at homo sapien from the very industry that we have created, the very cures to disease that would of eliminated the weak and those very forests that have factors not even touched upon by modern scientists that might very well be a part of the missing puzzle of the next stage in evolution?

Certainly, research grants are being issued by various organizations all the time. What if a new science that emphasizes the process to the next step in evolution starts science all over again? Whereas, nearly every grant in the past that has been issued was based on the homo sapien delusion of scientific progress. A startling consideration where progress with a new science either puts other science projects in a new light, or as shocking as it might be for scientists - make some of the science that they so emotionally embraced with such dedication & endearment to be completely obsolete.

Therefore, only one major discovery with such a new science might show that the cure for cancer lines of research have to be ceased in order for certain defects in homo sapiens to die out for breeding of the proper mother of the new species. Although we write hypothetically, we are dead serious about pragmatic considerations for the future of evolutionary processes. A point which might very raise the eyebrows of those too weak willed and compassionate to see such a brutal stand.

Where in blazes is all this coming from, a scientist once exclaimed after his ill trained brain tried to grasp one of our more complex conversations. We carefully explained to him that a Book we have (handing him that very Book), would clarify some of his rather amusing confusion. Of course, he immediately destroyed that book after the first reading & immediately went underground so none of his colleagues at the university would know that he had associated with us. This is quite typical of the type of caution one needs for such a scary a subject as would predominate our conversation, causal or otherwise. We expect any day now to have Homeland Security demanding they show us the laboratory animals that we have rumored to have mutated from dimension Tiphareth of Tiphareth into something if released into the world will surely devour all of Syracuse & surrounding suburbs.

Lets state that we discover future man sees reason as a lie, and has a more efficient form of advancing the schools of science & philosophy. Lets state the next stage in human evolution is immune from all the disease that presently exists for the homo sapien. What occurs to the body of knowledge accumulated by medical research? Of course, it may or may not be useful to the newly born species, and yet how can we know for sure until they, explain it to us? Of course, their explanations might be more complex that we can handle if the average IQ of the new species is twice the IQ of the homo sapien. What of a completely new consistency of mind altogether that perceives and has control of different dimensions of geometry?

Well, the only way to really approach any real understanding of such a new science is to begin this new science using the method of science & experimentation carefully curbing our imagination as the reality of the discovery of science adjusts the parameters of our reality.

Love is the law, love under will

Adoration Unto Nuit

O my beloved Goddess, I love Thee.
I am the winged secret flame unto Thee.
Bend Upon thy servant and impart Thy kisses.
I am always Unto Thee, Nuit. Let me awaken to Thy ecstasy; that I might know the omnipresence of your Body.
Let the world be regenerated; for I love you Nuit, my beloved Goddess!
I invoke Thee, Nuit. I love you Nuit. I am always Unto Thee.
I invoke Hadit Unto Nuit. I am always unto Thee, Nuit. I love you.

(This is an example of an Adoration Unto Nuit. Every Adoration Unto Nuit is a step forth toward the true, real Cosmic Consiousness – the ultimate Trance. Confer Liber Nu and Liber Had.)

With the use of shading and the way the eyebrows darken the eyes of the magician it should be noted with keen interest that the closer you look at the above image the more gentle & kind it will be perceived by the eyes. Yet stand back eleven feet where the shading of the image becomes menacing, nefarious and evil. A clever execution of symbolism to make an important point, don't you think? Where this has always been the dilemma of those who would predominate such attire and participate in such controversial activity. Yet, magick – although never for the meek – most certainly should not frighten those who would study it, analyze it and practice it with clarity of mind and sensible instruction. One can only perceive clarity in the symbolism of the Robe. Is not the Robe itself simply a symbol of the microcosm and the Cone that very Cone in Liber VII? Most certainly, with regards to the Cone hat is it not Had when carefully given a proper definition simply stellar radiation? Of course, the cone hat is simply that very same symbolism that Qabalists know as the three veils of the negative or to put it another way – stellar radiation (Had) stimulating the higher faculties. That terrifying image of the evil wizard dissolves as you see that the above Robe is nothing more than a Robe of the Priesthood of Nuit, the Goddess of the Stars - and the Robe itself is reminder that the ultimate Trance is the Supernal Ecstasy of the Stars, the omnipresence of Her Body and the consciousness of the continuity of existence – or in other words the real, true Cosmic Consciousness that all branches of spiritual enlightenment have spoken of in so many other words. It should be noted that the ultimate Trance is not the union to make yourself a living God in some finalized samadhi (although it is a step forth) but the ultimate Trance is the union of Hadit & Nuit as it is instructed with detail in Liber Nu and Liber Had. Confer Liber AL, Chapter I, verses 11 & 21 - and yet realize that line 49 is the true Temple arrangement of the Gods. Therefore the above Robe is the signature of the symbolism of Cosmic Consciousness which cannot ever be lost whereas the spiritual teachings are written forever beyond words in the Robe where those keen insights on the microcosm and the macrocosm are taught for those who tread the Path toward the real Cosmic Consciousness.

Why, yes! That image of the wizard when perceived closely - and having the symbolism of the Robe explained with perfect clarity is merely a kind and thoughtful person offering you a loving hug where from a distance he seems to be glaring at you with terrifying, dark hatred – getting ready to blast you into a thousand universes in his nefarious hatred. Herein is the lesson yet again that is explained so very cleanly in Liber Tzaddi, line 17.

Ultimately, however, the greatest lesson of all from the symbolism of the Robe is to not to forget the arcana of Cosmic Consciousness – that ultimate Trance that all branches of spiritual enlightenment have aspired to throughout the ages.

To begin experiments so sublime & mysterious as magick I must firstly study case scenario that observes similarities throughout culture. I must question the reality of each scenario to determine what my experiments are going to involve & how I'm going to set up the laboratory by choosing a scenario that dominates all the others. Having begun my outline that determines the direction I carefully write my hypothesis which is my suggested explanation for an observable phenomenon or of a reasoned proposal predicting a possible causal correlation among multiple phenomena. Having completed this I then proceed with my method of working. Having concluded the experiments I write my conclusions based on the raw reality of my work I am then in a position to write a commentary on my conclusions; announce my new discoveries giving a completely new outline that can be used as a presentation in essay or demonstration showing conclusive proof of its reality. This is the basics of the method of science & the private journal should adhere to Liber E, Section I. What do students begin with? Very simple. They are to learn about the nature & powers of their own being. This apparently innocent goal leads to doorways that unlock all the deeper mysteries on the subject — and is sufficient for the new student who would be an expert with the method of science. Note that a laboratory might consist of a replica of an ancient Egyptian Temple, a Temple of Ar, a circle drawn with candles in a cave, or a room with biofeedback machines, microscopes and other instruments of observation.
A student requests David Bersson give an elaboration on the method of science.

The Dawn of Magick

(I call upon scientists, mystics, freethinkers, & Darwinists to read carefully this essay in an attempt to deliver a line of research that aligns science and mysticism in a most unique fashion. Ask yourself this question trying to keep an open mind. Can we scientifically evolve the species?)

Written by David Bersson

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

Before beginning a synopsis of this theory let me first state that I do not necessarily agree that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is complete. I challenge scientists to prove that the following theory of evolution is either more valid or should be given serious consideration of being assimilated. Selection as Darwin set down his theories creates a more efficient animal, granted, but it does not necessarily create an intelligent life form that can balance perception on many planes of existence.

My theories on magick and cave man are now outlined for the world to ponder. Let scientists in all walks of life be challenged by a new perception which if even partially proved correct will change the direction of scientific research and evolution forever.

No doubt, a cave man who had clairvoyance would be alerted to danger quicker than the cave man who did not and therefore would survive. Yet proof of the existence of clairvoyance itself is still viewed as mere superstition. My essay on MAGICK AND MACHINES was not only meant as a warning but an inspiration to others to continue scientific research along the lines of magick. Apparently, I have not as yet been able to make clear my point of its importance to the proper people.

I must further point out, no other members of the animal kingdom evolved into the equivalent of homo sapiens. My theories of early man's use of magick seems to be the only factor that can reasonably support such rapid evolution.

I am deducing from the present how the distant past looked. This theory may only be proved by magicians (who are also scientists) who have stepped upon and gained initiation on the Western Esoteric Path. I realize this statement may be viewed on with extreme disenchantment. Yet the fact remains that the lens must be made clear before the specimen can be viewed clearly on the microscope. How can a profane see anything such as this when initiation has not occurred. I present this theory knowing that very few scientists are formally trained in magick.

In the dawn of time, when man was not yet man, meaning his ruach, nephesh and neshemah had not yet been altered by racial initiation man-creature lived in the caves to avoid the predators. He drew sigils, coherent and incoherent in the sand, the rock and on animal skin. In time, a man-creature created a drawing of an animal. No one can say whether this drawing was in the dirt, sand, animal skin or cave wall. All we can deduce that the motive for the drawing was a product of hunger or desire or even idle play. Herein was the beginning of talismanic magick. The deer ( we'll say for hypothesis sake) was drawn in the dirt to make that deer appear in the hunt. Of course, the man-creature would focus on the deer, kill the deer and bring it home. The man-creature would come home to the cave, see the picture of the deer, look at the deer he had captured and killed. He would be very pleased that his new strong magick had worked. Of course, the man-creature had no way of knowing that the forest was filled with deer and it wasn't the deer he had drawn but his skill as a hunter. Nevertheless, the man-creature REPEATED it thinking it was working. And he did this and other forms of magick over THOUSANDS, perhaps millions of years.

The hunter had become the sorcerer using his magick to get his prey. Now lets go 50,000 years further in time. (once again, we do not know that it was 50,000 years, it may of been more. Yet we can deduce thousands of years of primitive magick in many directions established a difference in the manner which the man-creature viewed the planes of perception.) Now consider of this, if you repeat something often, the general rule is you will become good at it. In fact, you will develop "byways" or pathways within your being to make it occur to perfection. (The game of pool is impossible for the novice and a matter of warming up for the expert) Therefore it is no longer a matter of whether magick is real, the question is how many times do I have to repeat the ritual before I acquire that knack and the energy begins to flow. How many thousands of years did man-creature do magick over and over and over? What changes did this create in his being?

The man-creature had become a homo sapiens with the same basic environment. Why did the man-creature evolve and not other creatures around him? Why does the man-creature no longer need all fours?

My deduction has no other logic to follow. The use of magick by the man-creature made him evolve into another species. We call that species today the homo sapiens. Intriguing how initiation and evolution are exchanged as concepts. For it is true. Man-creature created a talisman that developed a dramatic ritual, that of himself creating the scenario of succeeding in his hunt, energizing it and following through with it. The abstraction of symbol manifested into the plane of disk reality. The abstraction of two realities created the union of energy that began the early ruach. Neshamah was created by the man-creature thanking the Gods by looking up. The man-creature was manifesting energy by the talismanic magick and looking upward to see if the energy wasn't a gift from the Gods. The man-creature's polarity shifted when trying to attune upward to stellar radiation and to tap into his Gods. This manifested energy made man begin to walk upright. This would mean what we have named "Kundalini" is a left over manifestation of excess energy from that very process of evolution that our distant ancestors experienced with the Great Initiation of evolving into homo sapiens.

I further profess that magick will evolve homo sapiens into the next species.

I call upon scientists who have studied and practiced magick from the point of view of "the method of science" to study the above theories as a unique and important direction of research.
