3.0 out of 5 stars A book with no ending- or conclusions..., 4 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Talisman : Sacred Cities, Secret Faith (Hardcover)
There's a lot to argue about in this book according to what the reader knows or thinks he knows. The book is long and ponderous, but has some interesting passages, but at the end comes to no conclusions apart from asking the question regarding the possibility of a Jewish/Masonic conspiracy, or the idea that some people may think there's one (where maybe there isn't).
Putting aside all the minor nitpicked arguments I read the book as a history of the preservation of Hermetic Teaching/Ancient Wisdom as preserved and promoted by various cultures upto and including the Rosicrucians/Masons. Where most people are going to get lost is being able to believe that there can be any significance in the layout of certain cities and that in any case this is all superstitious nonsence not to be entertained in this so called modern age. NASA obviously believes in astrology- read Richard Hoagland's 'Dark Mission' (The secret history of NASA) It appears that many people in NASA are Masons.

The idea of a talisman is to attract certain forces/conditions/protection to the bearer and in this case we are talking about cities and the denizens of. In spite of the apparent 'rituals' we see certain prominent politians enacting we don't know how 'seriously' they take the various ideas and architectural construction of the past, including those in Paris and Washington.
I can't somehow see George H Bush subscribing to or understanding Rosicrucianism (an organisation teaching true occult knowledge/ancient wisdom) which I'm saying is totally different to Masonry. Aleister Crowley observed that Masonry was psuedo-occultism. Its pretty clear to me that some Masons have absolutely no clue of what it is they belong to...

As I see it the various Masonic inspired layout of certain cities are talismanic in effect that they attempt to harmonise and precurse the inevitable coming of an enlightened age where old erroneous and frankly diabolical religious ideas are done away with.
