The Hub of the Thread

Compiled by Karl Priest June 20 and 21, 2011 (revised 11-4-13)

Note: To fully grasp the depth of the evil described below, please start at “The Common Thread”.

Satan is not simply trying to draw people to the dark side of a good versus evil conflict. Actually, he is trying to eradicate the gap between himself and God, between good and evil, altogether. When we understand this approach it helps us see why...Jack Canfield said he felt God flowing through all things....Such reasoning implies that God has given His glory to all of creation; since Satan is part of creation, then he too shares in this glory, and thus is “like the Most High”....If the all-is-one view were true, then salvation through a Redeemer would become unnecessary and Jesus’ death on the Cross would be rendered altogether futile and pointless.

June 20-21 was the Summer Solstice which is a high holy day of New Agers. I think God led me to do this research as an “in-your-face” slap at paganism (see below). The following headlines were found on June 22.

“New Yoga: Thousands bring Times Square to a standstill for day-long yoga-thon to mark summer solstice”
(http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1288661/Thousands-bring-Times-Square-standstill-day-long-yoga-thon-mark-summer-solstice.html)

“'You could feel the energy'…”

The last article related that the event was broadcast live around the world. It also mentioned that neo-pagans (see below) watched the sun rise over Stonehenge.

In a spider web the spider can be found waiting (often in the center) to devour the creature that gets trapped.

Henry Morris (The Long War Against God) explained how Satan has used evolutionism as a tool to entice humans to worship him (Satan). In “The Common Thread” I began gathering documentation of how evolutionism is the intregal part of the coming One World religion. On June 19, 2011 a friend sent me a link to a documentary about the widespread use of “Do what thou wilt” in rock music.

The phrase “Do what thou wilt” came from Aleister Crowley who was a famous occultist until his death in 1947. Variations of that phrase have now been ingrained into the minds of millions and it is direct from Satan. The following compilation of quotes resulted from my research into “Do what thou wilt.” This article reveals what I would call the main thread of Satan’s scheme. The main thread of a real spider web is always retained as new traps are constructed.

You will see the connection to the serpent, the goddess, everyone is a god, and many of the groups/dogmas/individuals mentioned in the Addendum to “The Common Thread.”

Aleister Crowley claimed to have received The Book of the Law from an entity named Aiwass, which was to serve as the foundation of the religious and philosophical system he called Thelema.

According to Crowley, every individual has a True Will, to be distinguished from the ordinary wants and desires of the ego. The True Will is essentially one's "calling" or "purpose" in life. Some later magicians have taken this to include the goal of attaining self-realization by one's own efforts, without the aid of God or other divine authority.

The highest deity in the cosmology of Thelema is in fact a goddess, Nuit. [(S)he is one-third of the triadic cosmology, along with Hadit (her masculine counterpart—See below), and Ra-Hoor-Khuit, the Crowned and Conquering Child. She has several titles, including the Queen of Infinite Space, Our Lady of the Stars, and Lady of the Starry Heaven. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuit)] She is the night sky arched over the Earth symbolized in the form of a naked woman. She is conceived as the Great Mother, the ultimate source of all things. [ Heru-ra-ha (literally "Horus sun-flesh", among other possible meanings) is a composite deity within Thelema. (Sun god—KCP) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ra-Hoor-Khuit])

(Hadit)identifies himself as the point in the center of the circle, the axle of the wheel, the cube in the circle, "the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star," and the worshiper's own inner self…His symbols are our Sun, the serpent, the Fire Snake… (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadit)

Crowley defined magick as "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will," and spelled it with a 'k' to distinguish it from stage magic. He recommended magick as a means for discovering the True Will …Crowley was a prolific writer, integrating Eastern practices with Western magical practices from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn . (See below) He recommended a number of these practices to his followers, including basic yoga ; (asana and pranayama); [True Will is defined at times as a person's grand destiny in life, and at other times as a moment to moment path of action that operates in perfect harmony with Nature. This Will does not spring from conscious intent, but from the interplay between the deepest Self and the entire Universe…Thelema roughly means "will" in Greek….In The Book of the Law Crowley wrote "Do What Thou Wilt". "DO WHAT THOU WILT" can often be misunderstood to mean "do what you want". (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/True_Will)]

There are no "standards of Right". Ethics is balderdash. Each Star must go on its own orbit. To hell with "moral principle"; there is no such thing.—Aleister Crowley

Your Duty to Self: describes the self as the center of the universe, with a call to learn about one's inner nature. Your Duty to Others: An admonishment to eliminate the illusion of separateness between oneself and all others, to fight when necessary, to avoid interfering with the Wills of others, to enlighten others when needed, and to worship the divine nature of all other beings. Your Duty to Mankind: States that the Law of Thelema should be the sole basis of conduct. Your Duty to All Other Beings and Things: States that the Law of Thelema should be applied to all problems and used to decide every ethical question. It is a violation of the Law of Thelema to use any animal or object for a purpose for which it is unfit, or to ruin things so that they are useless for their purpose. Natural resources can be used by man, but this should not be done wantonly, or the breach of the law will be avenged. For instance, deforestation can cause soil erosion. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelema)

Buddhism, by hook or crook, is permeating western society including business, industry, education and even science (so-called)!

Buddhism will come to the West as psychology… (Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa)

The practice of mindfulness and concentration always brings insight. It can help both Buddhists and scientists…It is our belief that in this 21st Century, Buddhism and science can go hand in hand to promote more insight for us all… (unattributed)

In it are to be found answers to such questions of interest as: 'What is mind and matter? Of them, which is of greater importance? Is the universe moving towards a goal? What is man's position? Is there living that is noble?' It takes up where science cannot lead because of the limitations of the latter's instruments. Its conquests are those of the mind… (Nobel-prize winning philosopher Bertrand Russell)

Buddhism and science have increasingly been discussed as compatible … (Yong, Amos. (2005) Buddhism and Science: Breaking New Ground (review) Buddhist-Christian Studies - Volume 25, 2005, pp. 176-180) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism_and_science#cite_note-1)

A comprehensive science of the mind requires a science of consciousness. Buddhism offers what MIT geneticist Eric Lander, Ph.D., called a "highly refined technology" of introspective practices that provide systematic access to subjective experience… One way of meditation is to use breathing techniques

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (or, more commonly, the Golden Dawn) was a magical order active in Great Britain during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which practiced theurgy [The practice of rituals, sometimes seen as magical in nature, performed with the intention of invoking the action or evoking the presence of one or more gods, especially with the goal of uniting with the divine, achieving henosis (working to make the world a better place), and perfecting oneself. and spiritual development. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theurgy)] It has been one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultism …Concepts of magic and ritual at the center of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca (See below). The three founders were Freemasons…Much of the hierarchical structure for the Golden Dawn came from the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia, which was itself derived from the Order of the Golden and Rosy Cross. (See “Masonry” in the Addendum.)
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermetic_Order_of_the_Golden_Dawn)

Wicca is a specific Neopagan religion. Its adherents are referred to as Wiccans, though the terms Witches or Crafters are also used…Wicca is typically a duotheistic religion, worshipping a goddess and a god, who are traditionally viewed as the Triple Goddess and Horned God. These two deities are often viewed as being facets of a greater pantheistic godhead, and as manifesting themselves as various polytheistic deities. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicca)

Sometimes called "Wicce", "The Craft", or "The Old Religion" by its practitioners, Wicca has experienced a rebirth of sorts partly due to its popularity among feminists and others seeking involvement in a religion that is earth-based…They are adamant about the fact that Wicca is not synonymous with Satan worship. In fact, the concept of a supreme evil spirit or Satan is contrary to Wicca because the devil is a Judeo-Christian "construct". Consequently, Wiccans say they don't cast spells, don't ride around on brooms, don't cook poisonous stew, and don't pray for harm to come to their enemies. A subtle distinguishing mark between Wiccans and Satanists missed by many observers is the difference in their symbol, the pentagram. In the Wiccan pentagram, the five-pointed star sits upright in the circle, with one point heading straight up -- a representation of the perfect human. In the satanic pentagram, the star points down. Wiccans also reject Christianity. They do not believe in the doctrines of original sin, vicarious atonement, divine judgment, or bodily resurrection…

This central Wiccan belief is classically stated, "An' it harm none, do as you will.".. (Other beliefs are) what you do will affect what happens to you… Evidence of growth is believed to be seen in acting ecologically, teaching and preaching tolerance and racial harmony, and living a life of peace…Evidence of growth is believed to be seen in acting ecologically, teaching and preaching tolerance and racial harmony, and living a life of peace… Wiccans strive to use ritual to become in-tune with the divinity of self, the divinity of the Gods and other powers, and the divinity of the universe.

Wiccans believe in deciding for themselves what is right, wrong, true, and not true…Wicca is sensitive to nature and concerned with ecology. As a nature based religion, Wicca appeals to those who feel a strong need to "get back to the Earth" and places a major importance on protecting the environment…Wicca includes a strong element of feminist spirituality.

Timothy Leary was an avid admirer of Crowley.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Leary (in collaboration with the writer Brian Barritt) formulated his circuit model of consciousness, in which he claimed that the human mind/nervous system consisted of seven circuits which, when activated, produce seven levels of consciousness (this model was first published as the short essay, "The Seven Tongues of God"). The system soon expanded to include an eighth circuit; this version was first unveiled to the world in the rare 1973 pamphlet "Neurologic" (written with Joanna Leary while he was in prison), but was not exhaustively formulated until the publication of Exo-Psychology (by Leary) and in Robert Anton Wilson 's Cosmic Trigger in 1977. Wilson contributed significantly to the model after befriending Leary in the early 1970s, and has used it as a framework for further exposition in his book Prometheus Rising, among other works.

Leary believed that the first four of these circuits ("the Larval Circuits" or "Terrestrial Circuits") are naturally accessed by most people in their lifetimes, triggered at natural transition points in life, such as puberty. The second four circuits ("the Stellar Circuits" or "Extra-Terrestrial Circuits"), Leary claimed, were evolutionary off-shoots of the first four that would be triggered at transition points that we will have when we evolve further, and would equip us to encompass life in space, as well as the expansion of consciousness that would be necessary to make further scientific and social progress. Leary suggested that some people may "shift to the latter four gears" (i.e. trigger these circuits artificially) by utilizing consciousness-altering techniques such as meditation and spiritual endeavors such as yoga, or by taking psychedelic drugs specific to each circuit.

From 1989 on, Leary had begun to reestablish his connection to unconventional religious movements with an interest in altered states of consciousness. In 1989 he appeared with friend and book collaborator Robert Anton Wilson in a dialog entitled The Inner Frontier for the Association for Consciousness Exploration, a Cleveland-based group that had been responsible for his first Cleveland, Ohio appearance in 1979. After that, he appeared at the Starwood Festivl a (See below), a major Neo-Pagan event…

World religion scholar Huston Smith (He went from Methodist to mystic.—KCP) was turned on by Leary after the two were introduced to one another by Aldous Huxley (see the Addendum) in the early 1960s. The experience was interpreted as deeply religious by Smith, and is captured in detailed religious terms in Smith's later work Cleansing of the Doors of Perception. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Leary)

The Starwood Festival was founded in 1981 by the Chameleon Club, a recognized student organization at Case Western Reserve University, which later founded the Association for Consciousness Exploration LLC (ACE—see below). It has been operated by ACE since 1983. It featured entertainment, public ceremonies, and classes on subjects such as sensory isolation, Kirlian photography, Neopaganism, shamanism (see the Addendum), Wicca, holistic health, tarot divination, Thelema, and past life regression.

Some specific groups whose members regularly appear at and attend Starwood include the Church of All Worlds (CAW—See below), the Church of the Subgenius, Ar nDraiocht Fein (A Druid fellowship—KCP), and various Neopagan Covens and organizations. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starwood_Festival)

The Association for Consciousness Exploration (ACE) began on the campus of Case Western Reserve University) organization they offered concerts of local musicians, a film series, and hosted appearances of Jim Alan and Selena Fox (see below) of Circle Sanctuary (see below), Dr. Raymond Buckland, and the first Cleveland appearance of Timothy Leary. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_for_Consciousness_Exploration)

Circle Sanctuaryis a non-profit organization and legally recognized Wiccan Church…Circle was founded in 1974 by Selena Fox. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_Sanctuary)

Selena Fox is a Wiccan priestess and activist, psychotherapist… Rev. Fox is the founder of the "Circle Craft" tradition of the Wiccan religion. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selena_Fox)

Leary was an advocate of colonization of outer space and “transhumanism”. He wrote, Transhumanism is the doctrine that we can and should become "more than human". A typical transhumanist wishlist might include: physical immortality; a superior mind and body; access to the universe… Autoevolution opens so many possibilities of self-transformation that it's unlikely that any starfaring species would remain close to its original form for long. A few groups would no doubt do so, but the majority would be busy exploring new modes of being. What are the limits of such self-transformation?... I think we're midway in the chain of being from microbe to megamind, a turning point but not an endpoint. He closed the article with a quote from Barbara Marx Hubbard. (see the Addendum) (http://transtopia.tripod.com/semper.html)

Transhumanism, often abbreviated as H+ or h+, is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities… They predict that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label "posthuman" (see below). Transhumanism is therefore viewed as a subset of philosophical "posthumanism".

Transhumanism stresses the evolutionary perspective, including sometimes the creation of a highly intelligent animal species by way of cognitive enhancement (i.e. biological uplift), but clings to a "posthuman future" as the final goal of participant evolution.

Transhumanist philosophers argue that there not only exists a perfectionist ethical imperative for humans to strive for progress and improvement of the human condition but that it is possible and desirable for humanity to enter a transhuman phase of existence, in which humans are in control of their own evolution. In such a phase, natural evolution would be replaced with deliberate change. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transhumanist#Spirituality)

The posthuman, and posthumanism with it, are philosophical positions that overlap and are constantly engaged with much of postmodern philosophy, process philosophy, emerging technologies, and evolutionary biology, so the field is constantly changing. The critical notion of the posthuman is isolated from these fields as the embodiment of critical engagement itself; that is to say that the posthuman is not necessarily human in the first place, but is rather an embodied medium through which critical consciousness is manifested.

A variation on the posthuman theme is the notion of a "posthuman god"; the idea that posthumans, being no longer confined to the parameters of human nature, might grow physically and mentally so powerful as to appear possibly god -like by human standards. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posthumanity)

The Church of All Worlds (CAW) is a neopagan religious group whose stated mission is to evolve a network of information, mythology, and experience that provides a context and stimulus for reawakening Gaia (see the Addendum), and reuniting her children through tribal community dedicated to responsible stewardship and evolving consciousness.

CAW's members, called Waterkin, espouse paganism, but the Church is not a belief-based religion. Members experience Divinity and honor these experiences while also respecting the views of others. They recognize "Gaea," the Earth Mother Goddess and the Father God, as well as the realm of Faeries and the deities of many other pantheons. Many of their ritual celebrations are centered on the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece.

CAW began in 1961 with a group of high school friends. One of these was Richard Lance Christie from Tulsa, Oklahoma . Christie was fascinated by the " self-actualization " concepts of Abraham Maslow (see the Addendum).

By 1970, CAW placed greater emphasis on ecology and nature, applying the term pagan to nature-lovers in general, regardless of religion. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_All_Worlds)

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart (Timothy Zell) founded the CAW and described himself as a " Wizard." Distinguishing his real-world practice from the wizards of fiction, Zell adds a "k" to his spelling of " magick."

An early advocate of deep ecology (see below), Zell-Ravenheart articulated the Gaia Thesis (preferred spelling Gæa or Gaea) in 1970, independently of Dr. James Lovelock, (see “The Common Thread.) who is usually credited with the theory's development Along with his co-wife, Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart and the other members of his group marriage, he has been influential in the modern polyamory movement. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oberon_Zell-Ravenheart)

Deep ecology is a contemporary ecological philosophy that recognizes an inherent worth of other beings, aside from their utility. The philosophy emphasizes the interdependent nature of human and non-human life as well as the importance of the ecosystem and natural processes. It provides a foundation for the environmental, ecology and green movements (see the Addendum) and has fostered a new system of environmental ethics. Deep ecology's core principle is the belief that, like humanity, the living environment as a whole has the same right to live and flourish…The central spiritual tenet of deep ecology is that the human species is a part of the Earth and not separate from it. A process of self-realisation or "re-earthing" is used for an individual to intuitively gain an ecocentric perspective. The notion is based on the idea that the more we expand the self to identify with "others" (people, animals, ecosystems), the more we realize ourselves. Transpersonal psychology (see below) has been used by Warwick Fox to support this idea. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_ecology#Spiritual)

Transpersonal psychology is a form of psychology that studies the transpersonal [ categories that transcend the normal features of ordinary ego-functioning. That is, stages of psychological growth, or stages of consciousness, that move beyond the rational and precede the mystical (having a unique experience of communion with God, an ultimate reality, divinity, or insight into spiritual truths.). The term is highly associated with the work of Abraham Maslow (see the Addendum) and his understanding of "peak experiences", and was first adapted by the human potential movement in the 1960s.], self- transcendent (going beyond a prior form or state of oneself. Mystical experience is thought of as a particularly advanced state of self-transcendence) or spiritual aspects of the human experience. (It) "is concerned with the study of humanity's highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and realization of unitive, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness". Issues considered in transpersonal psychology include spiritual self-development, self beyond the ego, peak experiences, mystical experiences, systemic trance and other sublime and/or unusually expanded experiences of living. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transpersonal_psychology)

Paganism (Neopaganism or Neo-Paganism) is an umbrella term used to identify a wide variety of modern religious movements…

The modern popularisation of the terms "Pagan" and "Neopagan", as they are currently understood, is largely traced to Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, co-founder of "the 1st Neo-Pagan Church of All Worlds"…

Most contemporary Pagan traditions are polytheistic, but interpretations of the nature of a deity vary widely.

In Wicca, (especially Dianic Wicca) the concept of an Earth or Mother Goddess similar to the Greek Gaia is emphasized.

Several Pagan religions incorporate the use of magic into their ritual practices. Among these are Wicca, Shamanism (see the Addendum), Druidism (see the Addendum), and other Pagan belief systems, the rituals of which were at least initially partially based upon those of ceremonial magic.

(Margot) Adler also noted how there were many Pagan groups whose practices revolved around the inclusion and celebration of male homosexuality, such as the Minoan Brotherhood a Wiccan group that combines the iconography from ancient Minoan religion with a Wiccan theology and an emphasis on "men-loving-men", and the eclectic Pagan group known as the Radical Faeries . Similarly, there are also groups for lesbians, like certain forms of Dianic Wicca and the Minoan Sisterhood.

During this resurgence in the United Kingdom, Neo-druidism and various Western occult groups emerged, such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Ordo Templi Orientis (See below)…

Contemporary Paganism emerged as part of the counter-culture, New Age (see the Addendum), and Hippie movements in the 1960s to 1970s.

Paganism generally emphasizes the sanctity of the Earth and Nature. Pagans often feel a duty to protect the Earth through activism, and support causes such as rainforest protection, organic farming, permaculture, animal rights and so on. Some Pagans are influenced by Animist (see the Addendum) traditions of the indigenous Native Americans (see the Addendum), and Africans and other indigenous or shamanic traditions.

Some Unitarian Universalists are eclectic Pagans. Unitarian Universalists look for spiritual inspiration in a wide variety of religious beliefs. The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, or CUUPs, encourages their member chapters to " use practices familiar to members who attend for worship services but not to follow only one tradition of Paganism."

Historically the earliest self-identified revivalist pagans were inspired by Renaissance occultism . Notably in early 20th century Germany with Germanic mysticism, which branched into Ariosophy and related currents of Nazi occultism. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-Pagan)

Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) (Order of the Temple of the East, or the Order of Oriental Templars) is an international fraternal and religious organization founded at the beginning of the 20th century. English author and occultist Aleister Crowley has become the most well known member of the order.

Originally it was intended to be modelled after and associated with Freemasonry, but under the leadership of Aleister Crowley, O.T.O. was reorganized around the Law of Thelema as its central religious principle. This Law—expressed as “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love is the law, love under will”—was promulgated in 1904 with the dictation of The Book of the Law.

Crowley wrote in his Confessions:

"...the O.T.O. is in possession of one supreme secret. The whole of its system [is] directed towards communicating to its members, by progressively plain hints, this all-important instruction."

Of the entire system of O.T.O., Crowley wrote in Confessions: "It offers a rational basis for universal brotherhood and for universal religion. It puts forward a scientific statement which is a summary of all that is at present known about the universe by means of a simple, yet sublime symbolism, artistically arranged. It also enables each man to discover for himself his personal destiny, indicates the moral and intellectual qualities which he requires in order to fulfil it freely, and finally puts in his hands an unimaginably powerful weapon which he may use to develop in himself every faculty which he may need in his work".

Membership in O.T.O. is based upon a system of initiation ceremonies (or degrees) which use ritual drama to establish fraternal bonds between members as well as impart spiritual and philosophical teachings.

Admittance to each degree of O.T.O. involves an initiation and the swearing of an oath which O.T.O claims is similar to those used in Freemasonry. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordo_Templi_Orientis#Philosophy_of_O.T.O)

Crowley wrote in the first chapter of The Book of the Law: "Every man and every woman is a star." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuit)

“Do what thou wilt” is really a form of self-worship which is humanism which is motivated by Satan. Another way of saying “ Do what thou wilt” is “Follow your heart.” The Word of God makes it clear that philosophy is disastrous.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9

He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool. Proverbsro 28:26a

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12
