Graham Hancock write of the brotherhood. I for many years thought that the brotherhood, if there ever was such a thing, had to be dead and buried. I saw all the so-called mystery schools and knew them to be charlatans and money-grubbers. No real brotherhood would stoop to such a sorry state.

It people like Aliester Crowley and the Golden Dawn and other so-called recent brotherhoods that places a bad taste in one's mouth. These people wrote about the occult sciences but they were not saying anything. Having researched much of what they wrote about I began to realze that I did not need them because I knew more than what they were publishing and yet the sum total of what I knew you could not place in a thimble.

Then I began to come across some very inexplicable evidence that someone was placing books on library shelves leading the public around by the proverbial nose. There came also inexplicable evidence that someone was building monuments, not telling anybody, they were encoding the Esoteric Science in their structure.

Apparently people that understood the science work patiently alone or in a groups, working behind the scenes, leaving buried seeds so-to-speak in literature or monuments.

The science that I was independly decovering actually had modern day "TEMPLARS?" building monuments right under society's noses and not telling them what they did.

I believe that the mystery of all this is how could our society live in the midst of all this without realizing it. It shows you how selfcenter our society is. That is the mystery because when the individual realizes the beauty and magnitude of this hidden Esoteric Science society's knowledge would pale to insignificant. The realization of just how wrong orthodoxy can be. If our governments and educational institutions are this premative in comparison to the ancient knowledge individual the soul is lost unless he is given the grace of God.

If anything this Esoteric Science makes the individual creative, independent, and self-reliable. Government and so-called institutes of higher learn are not needed.

So no matter what the secrecy is with the brotherhood, or how shroud the evidnce is beneath monument and print the individual can discover it on his own if he truly desires it.

Enjoy
