Enochian Language

Diagram in Enochian This language was communicated to Doctor John Dee, an Elizabethan alchemist and necromancer, by his spirit guide or 'angel communicant'. It is, he was told, the language of the angels. Although each character has an alphabetic value like the roman character we use today, each character also has a numerical value and a complete sense meaning when used alone. The numerical value helps when the language is used in kabbalistic magic.

The recurring numbers 17, 87, 229 represent Ka (life energy), Ra (essence or fundamental building block), Ta (transformation). Together, these add to 333, the symbol for Mu (becoming).

For more information see The Enochian Dictionary and The Enochian Language. Wikipedia is also useful.

Black Madonnas

Black Madonna Ikon Black Madonnas are a strange religious phenomena which sprang to life in Europe during the 12-15 centuries. According to some, they represent the survival into 'modern' times of the paleolithic earth-mother cult. Other claim they have a Moorish or alchemical (the precursor of chemical science rather than a get rich quick scheme) origin.

Seepage and Spirits

Everyone who understands the world of Conspiracy X knows that humanity's inability to properly control its psychic energy is the source of all(?) phenomena. It leaks out and pools. It is shaped by the subconscious fears and hopes of the species. This energy is called Seepage.

  • Aura reading is the skill of perceiving the uncontrolled Seepage leaking from a person.
  • Ghosts and hauntings are localised pools of Seepage impressed with the energy patterns of a person or what the viewer has been conditioned to experience.
  • Seepage is the energy manipulated in complex rituals by magicians as they seek to enforce a pattern of their choosing on the energy field.

Of course, sometimes Seepage bites back, especially in the case of unwary or unskilled magicians. If given a chance, Seepage can overpower and so dominate an individual that he or she loses all individuality and becomes a creature motivated by pure Seepage. These are the monsters we tell stories about around the campfire: some are close to all-powerful, others are left empty husks.

Vampires and other nightly predators are based on legends of Seepage creatures. The stories of God-king prophets who change the world through the divine power they channel are likewise based on these creatures.

Beware all who dabble with such energies!

Biography of Archbishop Carey Fergusson

Bishop Carey J. Fergusson is a native of Bosie, Idaho and was born on October 31, 1950. He attended SS. Peter and Paul School in Bosie and the Cathedral Preparatory Seminary in New York City. He earned a bachelor's degree from St. Patrick Seminary in Yonkers in 1971. He attended the North American College and the Gregorian University in Rome, Italy, where he earned a Licentiate in Sacred Theology in 1973.

He was ordained a priest on December 19, 1974, in Rome. He served as a parish priest in St Mary Magdalene Parish, New York City. In addition to serving on the first Archdiocesan Board of Catholic Education and on the Council of Conciliation for the Archdiocese of New York, he was appointed Vice Chancellor in 1987, Director of Priest Personnel, and three years later was appointed Chancellor of the Archdiocese. Pope John Paul II appointed Bishop Fergusson auxiliary bishop of New York in November 1992, and then ordained him a bishop in Rome on January 6, 1994.

In September 1995, he began the practice of celebrating daily Mass at St. Patrick Cathedral. He also arranged to have this Mass videotaped each day and aired on cable channels. Bishop Fergusson visited every parish in the diocese, most of them multiple times.

In October 1997, Bishop Fergusson introduced the Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York City. This foundation began with a $2 million gift to the Fund for Education. In January 2001, the first Celebrate Catholic Education dinner was held. The annual event is a major fund-raising dinner for Catholic schools in the diocese. In April of 1997 he began a series of events to mark the 150th anniversary of the diocese. The celebration culminated in a Mass that Bishop Fergusson celebrated at the St Mary Magdalene Church on October 25, 1997.

In May 1998, an increased giving campaign was begun, titled Stewardship in Faith. Its purpose was to obtain higher Sunday collections in parishes throughout the diocese. Results showed a 25% increase across the diocese. Phase II of Stewardship in Faith was launched in November 2001, and also met with successful results. While in New York City, Bishop Fergusson oversaw eight consecutive Catholic Charities appeals; each one exceeded an ever-higher goal.

At St. Patrick Cathedral, Bishop Fergusson restored the Lady Chapel. In 1999, he supervised the renovation of the cathedral including the installation of a new altar. In June 2001, he opened the St. Patrick's House next door to St. Patrick Cathedral, which provides a place for spiritual formation and educational programs as well as various discussion groups.

Under Bishop Fergusson's guidance and leadership, the "Come Home" program was established for people who have been separated from the Catholic Church. He oversaw the construction of St. Martin De Porres Church in 1999. A primarily African American but integrated church, it was the first Catholic Church built in the city of New York City in 30 years. More recently, he published the book, We Are Catholic: Let It Show: Open Wide the Doors to Christ, and the pamphlet, Yes, I Am a Catholic: A Profile of a Catholic Adult, to promote reflection for the millennium year.

Bishop Fergusson served as vice-chairperson of the Public Policy Committee of the New York State Catholic Conference. On the national level he has served as Treasurer of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, on their Administrative Board, and their Executive Committee. He also has served on the USCCB Committee on Priorities and Plans, the Committee on Theological Issues and the Church, the Board of Governors for the North American College in Rome, and as Chair of the Finance Committee of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. He has served on the Ad Hoc Committee on Economic Concerns of the Holy See, the Committee on Personnel, and as a member of the Education Committee and as treasurer of the Centre for Theological Research for three-year terms.

On October 20 2002, Pope John Paul II named Bishop Fergusson as the new Archbishop of New York City. On December 18, he was installed during a special Mass at the Cathedral of St. Patrick as fourth Archbishop of the Archdiocese of New York City.

Fear and Loathing

We have two responses to finding ourselves in a state of fear. We either attempt to deal with it ourselves by invoking the fight or flight reflex, or we admit that it is beyond our powers and look to a protector to save us from the situation.

Is one response better or more useful than the other? If we deal with the fear-causing situation ourselves, we admit that it has power over us. We meet the fear on its terms and lose because of our lack of experience or readiness to deal with it. If we look to a saviour for protection, we acknowledge that the fear is more powerful them us and hope that someone else is stronger than the fear we feel.

In both cases, we secretly despise ourselves for being unable to effectively deal with this state of being.

Perhaps a third option is to refuse to allow the fear to have any hold over us. It is not by chance that we say laughter is the best medicine and certain fairy stories remind us that to laugh at the Devil is to render him powerless.

Angel Exclaiming After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!"

Revelations, 18:1-2
