The Philosopher’s Stone: The Search for Secret Matter

It is difficult to pinpoint his thesis.   It is easier to examine the argument and narrative as they unfold.   Strictly speaking, the question deals with the nature of the philosopher’s stone—the alchemical device allegedly used to transform base metals into gold.  Farrell looks at it from a different angle—the philosopher’s stone is the physical medium itself.    Transforming one element into another is simply putting stress on that medium.

From that thesis Farrell brings in his discussion of the occult, high physics, and Nazi technology.   First, alchemy’s occultic roots.  Farrell picks up where his Giza Death Star Destroyed left off.  Before we discuss that we should note a little background information and some of Farrell’s presuppositions.  Farrell assumes (and I think I hold to something similar) there was an ancient “high” civilization with an ancient technology.   Either this civilization experienced a civil war or fought (and lost) a war from the outside.  In either case the losing side “went underground” for much of what would later become ancient and Western history.[i] Much knowledge was lost and alchemical research is perhaps a search for that knowledge.

Farrell notes that the ancient neo-Platonic magicians spoke in alchemical concepts (and probably studied alchemy).   When St. Constantine converted the Roman Empire, alchemy and many of the schools of magic disappeared.[ii] With the rise of the Templars almost 1,000 years later, alchemy and “magic” revived in full form.  Farrell asks the very interesting question, “How did it appear without ‘missing a beat’ when most movements take decades to fully develop?”   The reasonable explanation is an underground alchemical movement.

Farrell takes this reasoning a step further.  Many alchemists were able to disguise alchemical research via Filioquist terminology.  Indeed, if one studies the hermetic and neo-platonic texts of this period, they use almost the same language and concepts of the Augustinian Filioque and doctrine of Absolute Divine Simplicity.

Farrell’s book then becomes an extended discussion in theoretical physics and will probably lose most readers.  Granted, the Nazi connections are intriguing and explain the evidence better than any other model offered by “academics,” but only the most committed reader can progress beyond this phase.

There was a very good discussion on Nikolai Kozyrev and St Maximus the Confessor.  Farrell (likely borrowing from God, History, and Dialectic) shows how Maximus’ worldview on “being and becoming” is very similar to what Kozyrev said on the nature of time.[iii]

CONS OF THE BOOK

It was really hard to follow at times.   I’ve followed Farrell’s works and have read some of his books, but many of his discussions seemed to belabor the point.

PROS OF THE BOOK

While his discussions belabored the point, they also seemed to prove the point.  His arguments are most thorough.

Further, his rhetorical skill has few equals.  He can draw out the implications of a concept or line of argument better than most.  While his discussions on theoretical physics are dizzying because most people aren’t familiar with post-Einsteinian physics, he does a good job of explaining the points.


[i] An alternative reading of this situation is that the losing side was completely destroyed and the victors were too weak to press the advantage.   Further, one could surmise that most of the knowledge was lost and only a small segment was passed down through certain “cliques.”

[ii] While it is doubtful that David Bradshaw entertains this thesis, his book Aristotle East and West suggests something similar.   He notes that many of these ancient sources went mysteriously untranslated.

[iii] Thomas Torrance said the ancient Greek scientist John Philoponos translated the concepts of St Athanasius and St Cyril of Alexandria into “physical concepts” and anticipated something like modern physics.

Proshloe ne Proshloe

At the start, this page is considering sacerdotal monarchy as a superior alternative to the representative governments of today.  Side issues considered are the role of Russia in today’s geopolitics and the promise of aSlavophile epistemology.

While I don’t consider myself the vanguard of the Slavophile movement (yes, it’s still around), it pains me that most of the critics of the “Regime” today lack the philosophical and theological background to offer a cogent enough analysis and deconstruction.  Perhaps I do as well–I am under no illusions of grandeur.  However, I have some philosophical training (and years of fairly intensive reading) and I am aware of basic philosophical moves and movements.

Most of the criticisms of the Regime (Regime = Bilderbergers, CFR, NATO, EU, UN, you get the idea) have a lot of good ideas, and do a fairly good job of summarizing multiple strands of analysis (I refer the reader to Jim Marrs work in the field, particularly The Rise of the Fourth Reich), yet these people either a) are unaware of basic philosophical categories–and are simply cannon fodder for the academics, or b) are committed to compromised philosopies like the New Age movement (I think Jim Marrs is in this category).

Slavophilism offers the serious student of history and philosophy a cogent manner of presenting the faith, standing against nihilism, and positing a clear, thoroughly Christian and ancient alternate social vision.

What is Slavophilism?

Slavophilism should not be primarily read as a romantic throwback to some non-existence “Holy Russia.”  It is simply stating the obvious:  given that Russia stopped the military power of the West, and later outnumbered 3-1 by the West (e.g., the Crimean War), fighting them to a standstill, it makes sense to say that Russian philosophers would articulate a narrative different from the West.  Every culture does this.  This “narrative” is Slavophilism.

My Remarks

Slavophilism is interesting today because many of the same characters are there: nihilism vs a resurgent (if often bumbling) Christian faith; globalism vs localism, and again The West (NATO, EU) vs. the East.  Stating this is not pining for some nostalgic Third Rome, though that is a legitimate area of discussion.  It is simply point out the facts.

But what of us who are not Slavic and will probably never reside in Russia?  Interestingly enough, the same publisher who is releasing Slavophile material is also releasing materials that point back to a Celtic Orthodoxy.  (yes, I know they also release some pagan materials).

Perhaps there is a connection between the two…?  It is worth finding out.

Review of Babylon’s Banksters

While the specific details often border into the esoteric realm, Farrell’s broader conclusions are sound. Further, Farrell has done the painstaking work of detailing the connections between money, religion, and power. Indeed, the old adage “Follow the Money” rings true here. Farrell’s thesis on its simplest level is that there has been a secret international money cabal who has always been close to power. Farrell points out that ancient societies almost always saw a nexus involving the Temple, the Throne, and the Bullion. Further, the control of the bullion was often delegated to mercenary bands (The Bershee mines in ancient Egypt, for example)–thus further pointing to international dealings. Granted, in ancient times it was much cruder and not nearly as heinous and perfected as it is today.

Farrell begins his story with Li’s formula, pointing to the Chinese statitician who supposedly started the economic meltdown a few years ago. The formula doesn’t make sense to my understanding–but neither does the reasoning of those in power, so it’s probably an accurate description. There are two ways to view currency: a debt note or a real symbol of wealth. Strong countries had strong currencies (no, not the gold standard). The currency they issued–state currency–represented the real wealth of a nation. The currency issued by private groups is rather a facsimile of a facsmile. It does not represent real wealth, but only debt.

At this point Farrell begins his discussion of ancient physics. While I’m not competent to discuss what’s going on, there is one aspect that is relevant to his thesis: if you are going to have wealth independent of the banksters, you must have an energy source/defense to guarantee your survival. Enter Nikola Tesla. Tesla had actually found a way to provide limitless energy to the world, using the earth as the physical medium. And if the parallels between his project and the Tuskunga event are true, he was also able to weaponize it. J. P. Morgan, being a priest of the Banksters, found a way to discredit and impoverish Tesla. Tesla had challenged the banksters and paid for it.

This also explains Nazi Germany’s desire for energy. The Nazis, for all their evils, found a way to do an end-run around the Rockefeller/Rothschild banking cartel. With the Nazi fall, many SS officers emigrated to South America. Assuming that the Nazis did have weapons and physics beyond regular imagination, the Rockefellers saw several potentials: 1) The Rockefeller/Rothschilds, likely being the spiritual descendants of Nimrod and no doubt having deep Masonic and occultic roots, coveted that technology (and the money behind it). The Nazis had no way (and no point) of using that technology, nor did they want to give it to their enemies. 2) However, they did need an outlet for their money and the Rockefellers needed the interest that the Nazi billions would accrue in the banks.

Therefore, the Nazis and the Rockefellers reached a detente. Further, David Rockefeller intuited that a global government would give the banksters easier access to the physics they sought. Thus, the founding of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderbergs (a Nazi actually started the Bilderbergs, a group that regularly sees Republican and Democrat participation).

That’s the general heart of the book. He says a lot more on the deep physics aspect. I simply do not have the expertise to judge his remarks. However, I now understand how *he* thinks the Giza Pyramids functioned as weapons. Normally radio (and energy) waves move in an “S” pattern (think of two people holding a jump rope and one popping it up/down). When this happens, the majority of the energy/power/??? is lost in the air. Tesla, however, in using the *earth* as the physical medium found a much powerful and clear way to send waves (think of two people holding a yard stick instead of a jump rope. The majority of the energy is still there upon reception). Tesla’s experiment grasped deep beneath the earth and, if the accounts are to be believed, likely caused the Tuskunga event. Therefore, while he may not be correct on the Pyramids, it is now easy to see Farrell’s point that the Pyramids could have functioned as such.

Interestingly, and while Farrell mentions this he does not develop it, Russia is one of the nations that is 1) actively opposed to the Rockefeller/Rothschild banking cartels and 2) currently pursuing alternative energy research.  Of course, this ties in nicely with what I (and others) have been saying about Russia’s opposition to the New World Order.

Preliminary Notes on Joseph Farrell’s Corpus

Almost one year ago Jay Dyer and Maximos Companik introduced me to the work of Joseph Farrell.  Farrell is a leading voice in the alternative history/science community.  Unlike many in that community, Farrell, being a theologian in the Orthodox tradition,* he has a firmer foot on reality.

Outside of his theological works, Farrell is known primarily for the Giza Death Star Trilogy.  While I am not familiar with the specific outlines of the Trilogy, I do know the general movement of the argument from his numerous radio interviews.  Presumably, the Pyramids represent a form of High Ancient physics that had planet-destroying potential.  Further, Farrell argues that a planet was destroyed.  Upon that destruction, the representatives of the “High Civilizations” encrypted their knowledge by means of different secret societies.  (The next sentence is entirely my own supposition and should in no way be assumed that Farrell holds to this view–he might or might not). Even more, the representatives of these societies, having been kept in check by the Romano-Byzantine-Tsarist monarchies, could influence civilization only in limited ways.  With the destruction of the Tsarist system, though, the fringe elements have become mainstream.

If one announces belief in Farrell’s theses, one will likely be laughed at in the academy, the church, and the conservative news outlets (already being scorned by the Left).  And granted, it is a tall drink of water.  Here are my thoughts:

  • I am willing to entertain the idea of a “High Civilization” with high physics.  This strains the traditional biblical timeline, and that does bother me somewhat, but it is not near as nefarious as positing that we came from monkeys.  Indeed, while I do not know Farrell’s personal views on evolution, his system in many ways turns it on its head.  If anything, mankind has devolved.
  • I don’t know if Farrell believes aliens are involved.  Further, I suppose one could argue that advanced civilizations colonized other planets, including a planet’s destruction, and yet these do not have to be aliens.  Aliens is the simpler answer, but since I follow Fr Seraphim Rose’s look on this, it is not an option.
  • Or maybe there is a synthesis to this dialectic.  Given the dark (almost satanic) designs of both Nazism and elements within Washington D. C. (those in the CFR calling for global government), there is a way one can maintain that the UFO appearances are both High Paleophysics/Aliens and Demonic activity (per Seraphim Rose).  Farrell has noted that when the US and the Russians tested their atom bombs in the 40s and 50s, the yield was twice as great as anticipated.  Farrell suggests, given the nature of his physics, that the atom bombs in some way opened a dimensional gateway (try not to interpret this in the kookiest manner.  I mean “gateway” in the sense that it tinkered with the physical medium–which is beyond doubt–and tremored the space-time continuum).  Around the same time there were increased UFO sightings.  Assuming the latter are demons, there is no contradiction between Farrell and Rose.
  • Along with Jim Marrs, Farrell suggests that the Nazis were able to carry their international financial scheme to South America.  Even more interesting, they had many banking connections with the Rockefeller clan, who would later be instrumental in forming the Bilderbergs, Council on Foreign Relations, and the Tri-Lateral Commission–three groups that directly rule America and the Anglo-banking world today.

There are still too many loose ends.  There are many questions I do not know the answer to.  In many ways I simply do not understand how the physics works and lacking that understanding, I cannot offer a serious critique and/or defense.  However,

  • I remain unconvinced that the people we call Egyptians built them.  I was challenged on this point last year (a commenter on the old Tesla site sent me this link), but the arguments they presented (or whatever they presented) missed the point.  I am not a Sitchenite (not sure what that is) and it seems the truth of the rebuttal assumes the proponent is a Sitchenite.  Further, people keep thinking I am saying that aliens built the Pyramids.  I have never said that.  It is quite possible the Nephilim built it–that fits in quite nicely with the biblical evidence.  In any case, positing that Egyptians built the Pyramids doesn’t account for the evidence of vertical water erosion the Pyramids and Sphinx.  Just saying…
  • Farrell is spot-on concerning secret societies and the banking international.

*I am referring to Dr Farrell’s work on St Maximus the Confessor and his magisterial God, History, and Dialectic–two works which are world changing. However, I do not know Farrell’s current status in the Orthodox Church.  My point is that Farrell is widely read in multiple traditions and has a degree from Oxford.  Understanding that the modern university system is a joke and such degrees more often than not are meaningless, it still counts for something.
