Chapter Eight – 1
Scientology Is Brothers of Light Religion
The previous union of King and Priest to rule the world was –
King of Germany + Catholic Pope = German Holy Roman Empire
That was defeated in 1806. It was replaced by a different union of King and Priest to rule the world –
British Aristocracy + Catholic Pope = the contemporary era slavemasters
The British aristocracy starting using Jewish bankers as one of their demented minions.
The primary family is the Rothschild family and they associate with Freemason lodges.
Brothers of Light sects say God is Light and the members are called Brothers of Light.
Freemason lodges are Brothers of Light religion.
The Cecil family is a top British slavemaster family. That family traditionally heads British intelligence.
Arthur Balfour was a member of the Cecil family. In 1882, he formed the Society for Psychical Research.
The SPR conducted scientific research into all mental and spiritual phenomena.
They developed all the basic ideas found in Dianetics and Scientology before Ron Hubbard was born.
That includes the therapy used.
When L. Ron Hubbard was a teenager he was recruited by British intelligence.
They groomed him to be the front man for their subjects called Dianetics and Scientology.
Scientology propagates the mental, spiritual, religious and political ideas of the British slavemasters.
That is an undeniable fact proven in this book.
This chapter shows that Scientology religious ideas are taken from Brothers of Light religion.
* * *
Starting around 2,000 BC a people called the Nesilim conquered and ruled Asia Minor. They also conquered Syria, Mesopotamia, Canaan, and Egypt. Everywhere they conquered they took on more gods and goddesses to the point they were called the land of a thousand gods. They had under them every god and religion that existed in ancient times.
Asia Minor sat at the doorway into Europe. Nesilim culture spread into Greece, from Greece to Rome, from Rome into Europe.
Nesilim kings represented themselves as being a god, or the son of a god, or a spokesman for a god. It was a method of subjugating people. The Nesilim kings, united with their priests, ruled the people.
That tradition spread throughout Europe as the method of government. The European kings always had the leaders of the main religions at their side as their co-conspirators in their effort to gain more territory, more obedient subjects, and more power.
Mithra was the Nesilim God of Light and Wisdom, closely associated with the Sun.
The fundamental aspect of the Mithraic system was the struggle between the forces of Good and Evil. Mithra and his devotees were battling the Powers of Darkness. The rituals were highly secret. Meetings were held in a cave, called a mithraeum.
In each Mithraic temple was a representation of Mithra killing a sacred bull.
Mithra is depicted wearing a Phrygian hat. Phrygia was located in central Asia Minor.
The ethics of Mithraism were rigorous; fasting and continence were strongly prescribed. That would be a common idea in later Brothers of Light sects wherein they said bodily pleasures are evil and they rejected the physical universe.
Mithraism ideas were the basis of many Jewish sects later in time. These sects say that god is light and the members are called Soldiers of Light, Children of Light, Sons of Light, and Brothers of Light.
* * *
Another religious sect that recommends rejection of the physical universe was Buddhism. It was not a god religion and was not a Brothers of Light sect. It stems from a priest-warrior tribe called Saka.
About 550 BC is the alleged time period for Gautama Siddhartha, born in Nepal within a priest –warrior tribe called the Saka or Sakyas or Ksatriyas. Nepal is just north of India. The Sakas also get known as the Sakyamuni. Sakyamuni translates roughly to intelligent fierce warrior, or sage of the Saka tribe.
Buddhism is based on the teachings of Gautama who became known as Buddha, meaning “the awakened” or “Enlightened One”. At the age of 30 he abandoned a life of opulence and focused many years of his life on self-denial and contemplation. One day, while sitting under a tree, he gained enlightenment.
Buddhism says desire causes all suffering. That is not true, but it is the same idea held by the Brothers of Light sects. Gautama taught his beliefs to his disciples along with the goal of reaching Nirvana, the state of having no desires, which releases you from the wheel of re-births, therefore you would no longer have a body.
* * *
By 168 BC the Romans were establishing the Roman Empire. They conquered and ruled Europe, Greece, Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, Canaan and Egypt.
Mithra sects existed in Asia Minor and it was under Roman rule. It was popular with the Roman army and they carried it back to Rome where it became one of the great religions of the Roman Empire. It then spread into Europe and became a major world-wide religion called Mithraism.
The Essenes were spiritual healers, healing souls who were under the mastery of fears, griefs, pleasures, passions and other vices. They were in Egypt and about 150 BC a community of Essenes began living near the Dead Sea, where Jerusalem is located.
There were two branches of Essenes – the Ossaeans and the Nazorean.
The sun was held in reverence by the Essenes. At sunrise they addressed a prayer to the sun. Amen-Ra was the Egyptian sun god. The Nazorean Essenes were known as the B’nai-Amen – Children of the Sun God. (Children of Light)
The Essenes called themselves Sons of Light; and their enemies Sons of Darkness. They saw the Final War of Men as The War of the Sons of Light against the Sons of Darkness.
The beliefs and practices of the Essenes included parts of Judaism and Buddhism. They meditated. They practiced the Jewish custom of resting on the 7th day. They rejected some Jewish customs – they refused to sacrifice meat to the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.
The Buddhists believed that desire was the cause of all suffering, and purification of self would lead to breaking the endless cycle of birth-death-rebirth. So, the Essenes sought to deny the senses to find a pure spirituality. They gave up their property and lived a life of rigid asceticism. They refused to drink alcohol or eat meat. Most Essenes did not marry. They regarded pleasure as evil and used self control.
They believed the immortal soul was locked in a corruptible body. The body was a prison for the soul which rejoiced when freed of it.
The Essenes considered themselves to be a separate people – because of their knowledge of the hidden mysteries unknown to other men. They felt they were on a mission and they were supported in this effort by highly evolved Beings who directed the Brotherhood.
The Essenes differentiated between souls that were sleeping and the awakened souls. Their task was to relieve the sleeping souls, to try to awaken the drowsy souls, and to guide the awakened souls.
When a candidate asked to be admitted to their School, a process of awakening the soul was set in motion. Only the souls considered as awakened could be initiated into the mysteries of the Brotherhood. Then a path of evolution began for them that would not stop through the cycle of their incarnations.
When an individual asked to be admitted – the candidate had to practice meditation. In this way, he could prepare himself to enter the Community of Light. After his initiation the newcomer received a mission to be accomplished during his life. This mission had to be a way of uniting himself with God and being useful to humanity.
A man was to carry inside himself a beautiful light – to be offered to earth inhabitants.
The Teaching of Light occurred in groups. The Brotherhood was strict about secrecy. They took an oath to honor God, observe justice, to love truth and honesty, to conceal nothing from their fellows, and to keep secret their books and the names of their angels.
The Essene Masters knew how quickly one can stray from the path of Light and get lost. He had to clarify his life, in order to keep alive and pure his bond with the Most-High, with the sun of his soul.
The School condemned slavery. It taught love for God, virtue, and mankind.
Joseph and Mary were Nazorean Essenes and Mary gave birth to Yeshua about 4 BC. Yeshua the Nazorean is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Greek for – Yeshua the Messiah.
Some Jews regarded him as the Jewish Messiah. Other Jews reject that and state that Jesus was not God, nor was he the Son of God, and he was not the Messiah – and any Jew who claims Jesus is their savior is no longer a Jew.
Yeshua practiced healing and had a following. The Romans executed him in 33 AD.
His followers were not all of the same opinion. Some regarded the Jewish god Yahweh as an inferior, short tempered, vicious deity who performed genocides, and other evil acts. Different schools of belief and practice were formed up after the departure of Yeshua.
Peter and Paul went to Rome and began the movement that became Catholic Christianity.
The Catholics made many changes to the original teachings of the Essenes and Yeshua.
More Jewish fiction writing took place to create the new Jewish faction – Christianity.
The so-called holy scriptures were authored centuries after the events they pretend to portray.
Christian beliefs include a future Second Coming of Jesus:
Jesus Christ will return and battle the Anti-Christ.
There will be a resurrection of the dead.
Judgment Day – where all will be judged and either sent to Heaven or Hell.
The Kingdom of God is established on Earth where only Yahweh is worshipped.
A Messianic Age will begin, giving peace on Earth for a thousand years.
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
The account of the life of Yeshua as portrayed in Christian Bibles are not actual history. It is invented history, as a result of proven forgeries, book burning, and fiction writing.
Another Brothers of Light sect popular around the time of Yeshua was the Gnostics. Some Gnostics believed in Jesus Christ, while others were non-Christian. Fifty-two ancient scrolls were found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The scrolls gave insight into Gnostic beliefs.
The Gnostics thought there are two Gods, the one the author of good, and the other of evil; and between these two there was unceasing warfare, as between light and darkness, spirit and matter.
The Gnostics held that matter was essentially evil, and consequently the Supreme God could not be its author. The other lesser God was the Creator of the World and he was looked upon as the God of the Jews, and that God was the author of evil. 10
Spirits/souls are divided into two classes, Children of Light and Children of Darkness.
The ancient Persians believed the Supreme Being was surrounded with angels, or what they called Aeons or Emanations, from the divine substance. This opinion was also held by some Gnostic sects. 11
The Gnostics believed that a spark of divinity is entrapped in an alien and evil world, and imprisoned in the soul of man. According to the Gnostics, the individual’s knowledge (Gnosis) of the spark within himself results in its being liberated from this world, and the Gnostic adherent abandons both body and self to join the infinite pleroma (the divine realm; heaven).
Gnosis meant knowledge, but it was a particular knowledge – that you are a spark of divinity, and this knowledge was obtained only by a personal experience of revelation. The attainment of such knowledge was the supreme achievement of human life.
All faultiness and suffering arose from ignorance of god, through knowledge of God (gnosis) will be removed all the bad conditions; and therefore knowledge of god (gnosis) is the perfecting of the inner man.
Valentinus was the prominent Gnostic leader in the second century AD. Valentinus wrote a letter wherein he states – “the soul of man is like an inn, which is inhabited by many evil spirits.” 12
For a couple of thousand years, the Brothers of Light sects have been talking about how numerous evil demons attach themselves to a human body. The reason they were evil is they did not recognize and obey God. They would tend to pull the soul or spirit of the body down into darkness with them. The solution was to realize you are a spark of divinity, and to unite with God, that would bring you into the Light and make you good.
Thus they sought to rid themselves of demon influence and to unite with god. That idea is what the Scientology upper levels are all about – first you rid yourself of the evil demons, then you unite with god.
Gnostics were barbarically massacred and their books destroyed. The Catholic Church did not want the teachings of the Gnostics to be studied.
Gnostics recognized the feminine; there is a supreme father-god and mother-goddess. The Gnostics were children of the supreme Mother-goddess, from her the divine spark descended to this lower world. The children of heaven still exist in this gross material world, subjected to evil spirits, and they must find their way back to the highest heaven.
The Gnostics said the most beloved disciple of Jesus was a woman, Mary Magdalene, and she was his consort. The Gospel of Philip says:
…the companion of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. But Christ loved her more than all the disciples, and used to kiss her often on her mouth. 12
The Gnostics saw the universe as a duality between spirit and matter. They conceived of a supreme divine being who was immaterial and eternal. In the Gnostic view man’s spirit is a fragment of this universal Being which has split off and become imprisoned in matter.
The world of matter was not created by the supreme God but by a lower god (demiurge) who commands a number of minions, called archons (rulers), who have different spheres of influence in the material world.
Man is composed of a body and soul, which belong to the material world, and a divine spark, or pneuma, which is the godly element within him. As long as man is kept in ignorance by the demiurge of his true position he will continue to be a prisoner.
Knowledge, or gnosis, is a personal experience of revelation. You become aware that you are a divine spark and that knowledge frees the spirit from its bondage.
The Gnostic belief in a graduation from coarse matter to pure spirit (alchemy) was reflected in the way their communities were organized. These were divided into three main groups. At the lowest level were those entirely preoccupied with material things, and as long as they remained in this state there was no possible redemption for them.
Next came those who were not capable of direct perception of the godly, but who believed in a higher reality and were therefore capable of partial redemption.
At the highest level came those who were possessed by the spirit of God, or pneumal, and were known as ‘pneumatics’. They acted as prophets and were capable of full redemption.
The Gnostics practiced extreme asceticism. Asceticism is rejection of the world and bodily pleasures through sustained self-denial, to strengthen spiritual life. The practice was to control one’s physical desires and passions.13 (Mithraism and Buddhism have similar ideas.)
A similar Gnostic sect was the Albigenses of France who advocated sexual continence. They were savagely wiped out in the thirteenth century in a crusade inspired by Pope Innocent III. After this Gnosticism went underground. It resurfaced as Hermeticism, which became a large part of the beliefs of Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Mithraism ideas also led to Kabala doctrine and that is the other part of Rosicrucian and Freemason ideas. Jewish Kabala practitioners also say god is light.
Gnostic beliefs were the forerunner of Hermeticism, Rosicrucians and Freemasons.
The Corpus Hermeticum was a series of manuscripts expressing Gnostic opinion about God.
The symbol of a divine spark encased in earthly matter is an ancient Gnostic symbol, which is also shown in the Rosicrucian symbol, the rose on a cross. The rose + cross represents the decent of Spirit into matter. The cross is the body and the rose is the spirit – the “divine spark”. The flowering of the rose means elevating the soul or spirit above the level of body concerns and its uniting with god.

The Nesilim spread into Europe and were the foundation of a German tribe called the Hatti or Hessians. They and some of their relatives throughout Europe were the kings.
Roman Emperor Constantine made Catholic Christianity the official religion in 324.
In 325 AD the Council of Nicaea was a meeting of Catholic church officials. They decided what constitutes the Christian faith. The New Testament consists of 27 books. The first five books of the Old Testament are included as part of the Christian religion.14
The Catholic officials made many changes to the original teachings of Yeshua. One change was to the Gospel of Mark, to hide that Yeshua had married Mary Magdelene. The New Catholic Encyclopedia concedes that most “of the biblical writings underwent considerable re-editing before final publication.” 15
The Catholics enforced their beliefs through book-burning, hiding manuscripts and murdering the non-believers.
Mithraism officially disappeared after Roman Emperor, Theodosius I, issued a decree in 391 AD banning all pagan rites.1 Regardless, the ideas of Mithraism continued.
Charlemagne was King of the Franks. The Franks kingdom covered most of Europe. He was a devout Catholic who maintained a close relationship with the Catholic Popes. He spent most of his life in battle and insisted on conversion to Christianity in the lands he conquered. In 782 he ordered the beheading of 4,500 Saxons who had been caught practicing their traditional paganism after converting to Christianity. Pope Leo III crowned Charlemagne as Roman Emperor in 800 AD.
In 936 AD, Otto I became the king of Germany. The Germans were descendants of the Nesilim, especially the Hatti tribe, which became known as the Hessians. Otto I, was also called the King of the Saxons – the forerunners of the British Monarchy as well.
The previous slavemaster union of King and Priest to rule the world was –
King of Germany + Catholic Pope = German Holy Roman Empire
Jewish Kabalah practitioners say God is Light, and they say they are Brothers of Light.
Sefer Bahir (Book of Illumination) was a Kabalah book in 1176, so they say.
The Kabalah explains how God created the universe.
First there is Ain – the absence of things, the Prime Cause.
Then there is Ain Soph – the Infinite, The Limitless. It literally means – without end.
Then there is the Ain Soph Aur. Aur means light. The Ain Soph Aur is Endless Light.
The Kabala concept is that the soul and the physical universe is made of Divine Light.
God’s infinite light is emanated through 10 portals to create souls and the universe.
The portals of light, or gates of light, are called Sefirot. They are an ascending path to unite with god.

The Inquisition accelerated in 1184 AD when the Roman Catholic Church created the Holy Office of Inquisition into Heretical Wickedness. The Catholic priests tortured and killed heretics – anyone who held a different belief than the Catholic Bible.
Torture was used to get the confession, then the heretic was burned at the stake in the public square.
The wealthy were prime targets for the Catholic Church. The Inquisition took over all of the heretics’ possessions upon accusation. The Catholic Church used this as a method of making money.
Here we have more proof that belief in god does not make you good.
Cosimo de Medici was a wealthy Jewish banker in Florence, Italy.
The Medici family wanted to undermine the Catholic Church. 13
In 1460, Cosimo de Medici commissioned a book – the Corpus Hermeticum. It contains Gnostic beliefs.
Therefore, it is Brothers of Light religion being re-introduced as “Hermeticism”.
Hermes Trismegistus is the central figure of Hermeticism. He is an invented character.
In the Corpus Hermeticum, Hermes Trismegistus gives lessons about god to students.
Cosimo de Medici had Marsilio Ficino translate the Corpus Hermeticum into Latin.
Ficino’s manuscript consisted of fourteen little booklets. The translation was in 1471.
Cosimo de Medici started the Florentine Academy, where they introduced the Corpus Hermeticum.
The Florentine Academy was the breeding ground of a conspiracy to overthrow the Catholic Church.
The Catholics were against education. Books were prohibited and burned. Learning was forbidden to everyone except the clergy. The Florentine Academy advocated education.
Ficino and other members of the Academy created materials to be used in attacking the “outdated dogma” of the Catholic Church. This group formed one of the earliest pockets of what would become known later as the Rosicrucians and Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
Hermeticism teaches that there is The All, or one “Cause”, of which we… are all a part. Hermeticism acknowledges that many gods exist, but these deities, along with all other beings, exist within, and are created by, The All.
The Supreme Nous (mind) used his Word (Logos) to create everyone and everything.
The new belief system called for a direct experience of the divine, just like the Gnostics.
God brings good, while demons bring evil. Focusing on the material life is very sinful.
“Gnostic” ideas expressed in the Corpus Hermeticum were used in Scientology.
Some quotes from the Corpus Hermeticum – (taken from the Gnostic Society Library)
Booklet 2, Poemander
2. I said: Who art thou? He saith: I am Poemander, the mind of the Great Lord…
8. Then said Poemander unto me… “I am that Light, the Mind, thy God…”
18. …the Father of all things, the Mind being Life and Light, brought forth Man…
34. And Man was made of Life and Light…
39. …the good end for those who have gained Gnosis – to be made one with God.
50. Poemander: “God and the Father is Light and Life, of which Man is made. …learn and believe thyself to be of the Life and Light…”
1. With Reason (Logos), not with hands, did the World-maker make the universal World … the Author of all things, and One and Only, who by His Will all beings hath created. (Scientology datum)
27. And the wickedness of a Soul is ignorance; for the Soul that knows nothing of the things that are, …nor that which is good, but is blinded, rusheth and dasheth against the bodily Passions, and unhappy as it is, not knowing itself, it serveth strange Bodies, and evil ones, carrying the Body as a burthen, and not ruling, but ruled. (Scientology datum)
59. … the Soul being also in some sort Divine, …and the Spirit governeth the living thing. (Scientology datums)
25. Now everything that is moved, is moved, not in or by that which is moved, but in that which standeth or resteth… (Scientology datum)
55. For all things are full of Light, but the Fire is nowhere. (Scientology datum)
120. …command thy Soul to go into India, and sooner than thou canst bid it, it will be there.
121. Bid it likewise pass over the Ocean, and suddenly it will be there; Not as passing from place to place, but suddenly it will be there. (Scientology datum)
91. What then is the operation of Life? Is it not Motion? (Scientology datum)
95. What a ridiculous thing it were, that the Nurse of all things should be unmovable, which beareth and bringeth forth all things. (Scientology datum)
14. For there is no part of the World void of the Devil, which entering in privately, sowed the seed of his own proper operation; …Adulteries, Murders, Striking of Parents, Sacrileges, Impieties, Stranglings, throwing down headlong, and all other things which are the works of evil Demons. (Scientology datum)
37. Tat: What therefore doth thou affirm to be the first Truth, O Father?
38. Hermes: The One and Only, O Tat, that is not of Matter, that is not in a body, that is without Colour, without Figure or Shape, …which always is… (Scientology datum)
Some of the ideas presented in the Corpus Hermeticum are used in Scientology….
Before the beginning was a Cause…
Life is basically a static. A life static has no mass, no motion, no wavelength, no location in space or in time.
Scientology… is seen as a study in statics and kinetics, which is to say a study of the interplay between no motion and all motion…
The biologist… has sought to dream for man an origin out of mud… and a source for him independent of God… Dianetics…may be of assistance to a resurgence in man of something of his belief in a Divine Being and in himself as an entity partially divine.
Science of Survival

In 1492, Ficino wrote that an “Age of Gold” was upon Mankind. The first sign would be the revival of arts, which would be a technique to liberate Man’s “God Potential”, the divine spark that was in each of us. 13
This whole operation was the forerunner of the Rosicrucians and the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
The Rosicrucian Order was a graded system in which members moved up in rank and gained access to more knowledge. Their spiritual path initially had 3 steps: philosophy, kabala, and divine magic.
* * *
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola was a student at the Florentine Academy.
According to Mirandola, there are two types of magic.
The first is Goëtia, black magic reliant upon an alliance with evil spirits – demons.
The second is Theurgy, divine magic reliant upon an alliance with divine spirits – angels and Gods.
Magic is part of Brothers of Light beliefs, using magic words to compel evil spirits to do things, or to call upon good spirits for aide. This is more religious Fairy Tales. There are no magic words for compelling any spirits.
Rabbi Isaac Luria was a teacher of Kabala who lived from 1534 to 1572. This is what we are told by the slavemaster religious authors, I do not know of any books that were personally written by Luria.
God is light and he created souls and the universe by emanating his divine light. Each individual soul or spirit is a divine spark. The goal is to unite the sparks with the creator, meaning god. 16
There are superior and inferior souls… man’s soul, because of its deficiencies, can not return to its source, and has to wander not only through the bodies of men and of animals, but even through inanimate things such as wood, rivers, and stones.
A multitude of inferior evil souls inhabit a human body and freeing these sparks enables them to unite with god. This action restores the world, and enables the superior divine sparks to unite with god. It is the individual’s divinely appointed task to liberate those sparks that are entrapped within his own body and soul… 17
The Brothers of Light started out saying that the material world is evil and the body is a trap because many evil demons have attached themselves to the body and the demons are holding the soul and spirit down in darkness and captivity. Therefore they sought to reject the material world entirely and to unite with god in a spiritual realm.
Lurian Kabala changed their idea. They now say it is ok to live in the physical universe, we just need to rid ourselves of those inferior evil demons, then the superior good people (who believe in god) can unite with god. That is exactly what the Scientology Bridge is about. On the advanced Scientology levels you get rid of the evil demons, then you unite with god.
Lurian Kabala says they are creating the New Adam.
Scientology calls him Homo Novis, which are Latin words meaning New Man.
…we are at a change point in the history of Dianetics and Scientology. We are at that change point which is – changing Homo sap to Homo Novis, and that is the only change point we are arrived at.
