The legendary Knights Templar
were a military, monastic order with their main centre at Bernard de Clairvaux
in the east of France, and with Jerusalem as an important pole.
For some centuries the
Knights Templar had an amazing cultural and large-scale financial influence in
Europe. It is believed that they had attained a special knowledge of biblical
and ancient oriental traditions, from Egypt - and from Moses.
However, they suddenly
disappeared from history. Later, parts of the old tradition were observed still
to be in existence inside other societies and brotherhoods.
Secret Knowledge and Mysteries of Antiquity: Form the
earliest times existed different kinds of secret knowledge and cultic mysteries
- for instance initiation, cultic-religious mystery plays, and stellar science.
All this was available in the ancient civilized societies, e.g. in Egypt.
Even today certain forms can be seen in action among primitive people around the
world. At ancient times also knowledge and science seem to have been handed
down, thus giving their owners a special power. By
confident tradition and mythic metaphors, secret knowledge was handed down
through Antiquity into newer ages. In official religion-history contexts these
cults and the often high-ranking members of their societies are mostly
considered as exotic, collateral branches, although they had a decisive, genuine
importance in history.
and the Israelites left Egypt, in 1455 BC, Moses had the temples plundered,
according to Manetho, the Greek-Egyptian historian (approx. 280 BC). The temple
archives, abducted by Moses at that time, have contained knowledge and data of
which the Europeans, several thousand years later, still wanted to get some
insight. Later, this became a special incentive to exploring expeditions - so
ardently occupying Knights Templar during the time of Crusades as well as
today’s archaeologists. At
an early age Moses was initiated in the knowledge of the ancient Egyptian
mystery cults. Later, influenced by Greek culture, they were maintained during
the times of Alexandria’s glory, approx. 330 BC till 330 AD Knowledge from
several religions, e.g. the Gnostics, were used by many cults...
Andy Monkman: The "Flower of Life" can be found in all major religions of the world. It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the "Great Void". Everything is made from the Creator"s thought. After the creation of the Seed of Life the same vortex"s motion was continued, creating the next structure known as the Egg of Life. This structure forms the basis for music, as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. I...What is Alchemy ?
Anthony North: Of all the esoteric arts, none are more controversial than alchemy. Indeed, the standard image we have of the Magician – pointy hat, wise look on his ancient face, and surrounded by books and glass vials – is really that of the Alchemist. Existing in a world of mystery, the Alchemist seemed to be a dark, occult shadow over much of Europe from Medieval times to the birth of the modern world. And his claims were quite often fantastic.Famous alchemists: Europe produced many alchemist...Archimedes Death Ray device put to the test
Massachuessets Institute of Technology: Ancient Greek and Roman historians recorded that during the siege of Syracuse in 212 BC, Archimedes (a notably smart person) constructed a burning glass to set the Roman warships, anchored within bow and arrow range, afire. The story has been much debated and oft dismissed as myth. TV's MythBusters were not able to replicate the feat and “busted” the myth.Intrigued by the idea and anintuitive belief that it could work, MIT's 2.009ers decided to ap...Cracking the alchemists' secret recipe
A 500-year old mystery surrounding the centerpiece of the alchemists' lab kit has been solved by UCL (University College London) and Cardiff University archaeologists. Since the Middle Ages, mixing vessels – or crucibles – manufactured in the Hesse region of Germany have been world renowned because of their ability to withstand strong reagents and high temperatures. Previous work by the team has shown that Hessian crucibles have been found in archaeological sites across the world, including ...The eternal now
Anthony North: Foretelling the future is one of the trickiest areas of the paranormal. Within known theorizing, there is very little of a concrete nature that can suggest it is possible. Hence, much skepticism is placed on the subject. For my own research, I"ve looked at the idea that possible future outcomes can be gleaned by unconscious knowledge and intuitions in the present. However, I won"t bore the reader by going over these "mechanisms" again. I want to look further than that.: For whilst...Feng shui creates better websites
Could someone or
something switch us off? Could it possibly be true that our world is just a
computer program, or a hologram, or a dream? Although it's about the weirdest
thing you could think of, there are some tantalizing clues this might indeed be
the case. The stuff we call 'reality' simply isn?t very real after all.
Welcome to the outskirts of reality. Welcome to the place where theoretical
physics and philosophy meet, and where religion and science loose their meaning.

To most of us, the word "alchemy" calls up the
picture of a medieval and slightly sinister laboratory in which an aged,
black-robed wizard broods over the crucibles and alembics that are to bring
within his reach the Philosopher's Stone, and with that discovery, the formula
for the Elixir of life and the transmutation of metals. But one can scarcely
dismiss so lightly the science -- or art, if you will --that won to its service
the lifelong devotion of men of culture and ...
