If one did the work they would discover that the progressive belief in global warming, human sacrifice of achievement to the preservation of Mother Earth, and even the treacherous aspects of feminism have their roots in Aleister Crowley’s invention of the Scarlet Woman. Crowley through his occult rituals and Masonic history took the kind of behavior conducted behind the secret societies of Europe and several American presidents and made them mainstream and accessible to the entertainment industry in the early days of Hollywood. Aleister Crowley’s direct student, Jack Parsons would become the central figure of the counter-culture movement where watered down aspects of Thelemic belief would turn America culture upside down and destroy all sense of tradition. When some vile hippie cries braless and stoned for the health of Mother Earth, they are simply reiterating the concept invented by Crowley of the Great Mother, the Mother of Abominations—the Scarlet Woman of Gnostic Mass. It is the Scarlet Woman that the Green Movement is truly dedicated to and the means of appeasing her requires collective sacrifice to the Mother of Abominations for the task of appeasing her cohort—the The Beast.
Babalon also known as the Scarlet Woman, Great Mother or Mother of Abominations) is a goddess found in the mystical system of Thelema, which was established in 1904 with English author and occultistAleister Crowley‘s writing of The Book of the Law. In her most abstract form, she represents the female sexual impulse and the liberated woman; although in the Creed of the Gnostic Mass she is also identified with Mother Earth, in her most fertile sense. At the same time, Crowley believed that Babalon had an earthly aspect in the form of a spiritual office, which could be filled by actual women—usually as a counterpart to his own identification as “To Mega Therion” (The Great Beast)—whose duty was then to help manifest the energies of the current Aeon of Horus.
Her consort is Chaos, the “Father of Life” and the male form of the Creative Principle. Babalon is often described as being girt with a sword and riding the Beast. She is often referred to as a sacred whore, and her primary symbol is the Chalice or Graal.
As Crowley wrote in his The Book of Thoth, “she rides astride the Beast; in her left hand she holds the reins, representing the passion which unites them. In her right she holds aloft the cup, the Holy Grail aflame with love and death. In this cup are mingled the elements of the sacrament of the Aeon“.
Babalon is a complex figure, although within Thelemic literature, she has three essential aspects: she is the Gateway to the City of the Pyramids, the Scarlet Woman and the Great Mother.
Within the mystical system of the A∴A∴, after the adept has attained the Knowledge and Conversation of his Holy Guardian Angel, he then might reach the next and last great milestone — the crossing of the Abyss, that great spiritual wilderness of nothingness and dissolution. Choronzon is the dweller there, and his job is to trap the traveler in his meaningless world of illusion.
However, Babalon is just on the other side, beckoning. If the adept gives himself totally to her—the symbol of this act being the pouring of the adept’s blood into her graal — he becomes impregnated in her, then to be reborn as a Master of the Temple and a saint that dwells in the City of the Pyramids. From Crowley’s book Magick Without Tears:
[S]he guardeth the Abyss. And in her is a perfect purity of that which is above, yet she is sent as the Redeemer to them that are below. For there is no other way into the Supernal mystery but through her and the Beast on which she rideth.
And from The Vision and the Voice (12th Aethyr):
Let him look upon the cup whose blood is mingled therein, for the wine of the cup is the blood of the saints. Glory unto the Scarlet Woman, Babalon the Mother of Abominations, that rideth upon the Beast, for she hath spilt their blood in every corner of the earth and lo! she hath mingled it in the cup of her whoredom.
She is considered to be a sacred whore because she denies no one, and yet she extracts a great price — the very blood of the adept and his ego-identity as an earthly individual. This aspect of Babalon is described further from the 12th Aethyr:
This is the Mystery of Babylon, the Mother of Abominations, and this is the mystery of her adulteries, for she hath yielded up herself to everything that liveth, and hath become a partaker in its mystery. And because she hath made her self the servant of each, therefore she becomes the mistress of all. Not as yet canst thou comprehend her glory.
Beautiful art thou, O Babylon, and desirable, for thou hast given thyself to everything that liveth, and thy weakness hath subdued their strength. For in that union thou didst understand. Therefore art thou called Understanding, O Babylon, Lady of the Night!
The concept contained within this aspect of Babalon is that of the mystical ideal, the quest to become one with All through the annihilation of the earthly ego (“For as thy blood is mingled in the cup of BABALON, so is thine heart the universal heart.”). The blood spilling into the graal of Babalon is then used by her to “flood the world with Life and Beauty” (meaning to create Masters of the Temple that are “released” back into the world of men), symbolized by the Crimson Rose of 49 Petals.
In sex magic, the mixture of menstrual blood and semen produced in the sexual act with the Scarlet Woman or Babalon is called the Elixir Rubeus (abbreviated as El. Rub. by Crowley in his magical diaries), and is referred to as the “effluvium of Babalon, the Scarlet Woman, which is the menstruum of the lunar current” by Kenneth Grant.
Although Crowley often wrote that Babalon and the Scarlet Woman are one, there are also many instances where the Scarlet Woman is seen more as a representative or physical manifestation of the universal feminine principle. In a footnote to Liber Reguli, Crowley mentions that of the “Gods of the Aeon,” the Scarlet Woman and the Beast are “the earthly emissaries of those Gods.” (Crowley 1997, Liber V vel Reguli). He then writes in The Law is for All:
It is necessary to say here that The Beast appears to be a definite individual; to wit, the man Aleister Crowley. But the Scarlet Woman is an officer replaceable as need arises. Thus to this present date of writing, Anno XVI, Sun in Sagittarius, there have been several holders of the title.
What a lot of people have a hard time understanding is that the Beatles musician John Lennon was also a follower of Aleister Crowley and had his mind well prepared to do the work of Thelema indirectly as a premier advocate of the counter-culture movement. Like most things in Thelema teaching things often have two meanings, which appear to be the case with the 1959 novel Alas Babylon. In 1965 journalist Larry Kane gave Lennon a copy of Alas Babylon which the singer devoured in a single night. On one hand Babylon is symbolic of the Biblical city from Revelation 18:10: Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. The novel was a statement against nuclear war—but there was another meaning which meant a great deal to counter-culture members like Lennon and other hippie advocates. Babylon was simply another spelling for Babalon, the goddess from Crowley’s The Book of the Law. The nuclear war was not so much a threat to humanity as much as it was to the great goddess of Thelema belief. It was an attack against the great Mother Earth herself—the living embodiment of the Scarlet Woman, her menstrual blood was the lava of volcanoes, her tears the rain that falls from the skies, and her temperament something to be feared like a frightened child reveres a tumultuous parent. John Lennon was thus inspired to write a number of songs against nuclear war and would personify the symbol of peace, which was actually created by the KGB to pacify resistance to their great communist spread—which followers of Thelema religion also supported. Jake Parsons was a communist and Aleister Crowley thought of himself as an “aristocratic communist.” These were the men who so greatly influenced John Lennon who like Led Zeppelon were part of the “British Invasion” which was quite literally true. Crowley’s native country rooted in The Golden Dawn wished to bring the Thelema beliefs to America behind a political movement called progressivism.
Alas Babylon is about Randy (Randolph) Bragg who lives in the small Central Florida town of Fort Repose and appears to be drifting down a somewhat aimless path in life when his older brother, Colonel Mark Bragg, an Air ForceIntelligence officer, sends his wife and two children to stay in Fort Repose, explaining that, because the Soviet government believes it can succeed, it will be emboldened to risk war. Mark is flying his family down to Florida for their protection while he stays at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska.
Soon after, an American fighter pilot attempting to intercept an enemy plane over the Mediterranean inadvertently fires an AIM-9 Sidewinderheat-seekingmissile that goes off course and hits an ammunition depot in Latakia, Syria, resulting in a large explosion. This event becomes the apparent casus belli for the Soviet Union to launch a nuclear strike against the United States and her allies. Early the following morning, Soviet missiles arrive from over the Arctic, as well as from submarines, while American missiles are sent in response. Randy and his house guests are awakened by shaking due to bombing of various air force bases and naval air stations across central and northeast Florida; one explosion temporarily blinds Peyton, Randy’s niece.
Things are chaotic at first: Tourists are trapped in their hotels, telegraph lines fail to work, the use of the CONELRAD radio system exposes its weaknesses, convicts escape from jails and prisons, and a run on the bank results in the bank’s closing. Randy organizes his immediate neighbors to provide housing, food, and water for themselves.
Over the months, news trickles in exclusively through the radio. Most of the government on both sides has been eliminated. The current American president, Josephine Vanbruuker-Brown, was formerly the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare. Having been active as a part-time Army Reserve officer before the Soviet attack, Randy organizes a community self-defense team against bandits and works to rid the community of radioactive jewelry smuggled into Fort Repose from the ruins of Miami.
The following year, Air Force helicopters make contact with Fort Repose. While they offer to evacuate the residents from Florida, which is considered a “contaminated zone,” the residents choose to stay. It is revealed that the United States won the war, but at a tremendous cost as it is now the recipient of aid from third world countries such as Brazil and Venezuela.
The events described above are the basic foundations for the new Green Movement. The war against coal, the hatred of fossil fuels, capitalism, and all manners of selfish human achievement is viewed by the supporters of the original Scarlet Woman as literally evil, because they are willing to sacrifice all for her appeasement—even their very lives and reputations. President Obama is certainly one of these supporters. When Hillary Clinton declares that she is a proud turn of the century progressive, she is talking about the wind which blew the sails of political change called Thelema and its reverence to the Scarlet Women. This is why feminists enjoy so much reference to ancient female goddess power—because the foundations of their belief system came directly from the works of Thelema—from the most wicked man in the world—Aleister Crowley.
Bet you didn’t know any of that dear reader……………….but now you do. Stay tuned tomorrow where you will learn all about the Denver International Airport and the heavy Masonic artwork provided there that intends to pave the way toward the legalization of marijuana—and a collective opening of the world to the ways of a Master of the Temple and a saint that dwells in the City of the Pyramids. The workings of these mechanisms are right out in the open at the 15th busiest airport in the world intending to bring about a mass ritual reverence to the great Scarlet Women of Babalon, as you will soon see for yourself. Prepare your mind for this very startling conclusion to a sinister plot against us all invoked over one hundred years ago. And if you catch your government school forcing your child to read Alas Babylon, now you know that there are two reasons—and they aren’t warnings about nuclear war.
