Secret Rituals of The Men in Black

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them. “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” Genesis 6:1-2
“From this mysterious personage, at once a sage and a hero, all the principal sections of the Vril-ya race pretend to trace a common origin.
“The portraits are of the philosopher himself, of his grandfather, and great-grandfather. They are all at full length. The philosopher is attired in a long tunic which seems to form a loose suit of scaly armor, borrowed, perhaps, from some fish or reptile, but the feet and hands are exposed: the digits in both are wonderfully long, and webbed.
“The great-grandfather was a magnificent specimen of the Batrachian genus, a Giant Frog, pur et simple.”
-Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Vril: The Power of the Coming Race, 1871
“Man has the right to think what he will:
to speak what he will:
to write what he will:
to draw, paint, carve, etch, mould, build as he will:
to dress as he will.”
-Aleister Crowley, Liber LXXVII
“Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth…”
-Liber AL vel Legis, III,17
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

WHAT are the Secret Rituals of the Men in Black, you ask yourself. Does this book actually give them away?
Is it an exposure, like another book of Secret Rituals that came out over three decades ago? Or other such exposures that come out every few decades, since the need arose in men’s minds to have a glimpse at the inner workings of the Secret Club? Will we become aware of just who or what the dreaded Men in Black are, where they come from, or where they spend their time?
In order to answer these questions, let us present some ideas that shed “further light” on these two ideas: Secret Rituals, and Men in Black.
To start, I must say that this book has not been offered anywhere before – in print, or on the web, save for a small portion of it, in the form of the chapter on Jack Parsons, which appeared on the Brother Blue site, and was carried in an early number of the Grey Lodge Occult Review in 2002, and offered in Roots of Magick: 1700 thru 2000.
It is with great pleasure that we offer this important work to the public.
Secret Rituals
Secret Rituals are Rituals that have not been exposed. The Rituals of certain organizations that have been published are no longer secret-whether we are talking about various Masonic organizations, Rosicrucian Orders, the Golden Dawn, Crowley’s
A. A., the O. T. O., T. O. P. Y., or any other. The rituals published by Morgan, by Blanchard, and others are no longer secret. Those offered for sale by Kissinger are no longer secret.
The rituals published by Aleister Crowley, Israel Regardie, and Francis King, Naylor and Koenig are no longer secret. Does that mean that the efficacy is lost once the clichéd cat is let out of the proverbial bag?
Of course not.
As Allen has mentioned, in the present book, and in other places, armchair ritualizing does not make one an initiate. One must experience the Rituals in order for them to be effective. Not only that, as organizations grow and develop, the rites and practices should reflect that growth and development. Failure to Initiate is a “fatal error” – and more than one Initiate has, through the years warned the Brethren about it.
Fresh material needs to be infused regularly over time into the body of the organization – any organization, if its Initiation procedure is going to remain fresh, vital, and relevant to the society it exists in and which forms the base that it draws its membership from. Say it isn’t so? Look around you. Guess again.
What, then, are the Secret Rituals exposed here? For starters, this book is not so much an exposure as it is a signpost pointing the way. The way? The WAY! This is the Path. The Path involves Contact. Communication with that OTHER portion. The Other Side.
The claptrap of gestures, signs and handshakes, secret languages, ciphers, pass-words, mnemonic data that is supposed to be memorized so that one can pass an exam that maybe even the examiner is ignorant of, without the answer key, are all worthless unless it is realized that it is all outer trappings, devoid of any value or significance at all unless viewed in the Light of the experience of Contact.
What is the “Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel” after all? Contact! Con-Tact!!
So, then, would it be fair to say that those Rituals which facilitate the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel, such as the “Bornless” Ritual, the Augoeides layer of the Z-2 formulae, Levi’s Conjuration of the Four and other rituals that exist along these lines – are Secret Rituals?
Even if they are in-print and exposed many times over? Yes.
What gives? Didn’t I just say that publication exposes once-held secrets and renders them ineffective? True, I did. However, there is an exception to that rule, and that has to do with a cycle of rituals that are very personal and private affairs – that involve the development of the self so that it can communicate with the Self, and achieve that Indwelling, the Day Spring from on High, as the ancients called it.
A group of people can go out to Joshua Tree (or similar popular remote places) – ingest all the entheogens they want, and do the sing-song repetition of rituals written by Somebody Else, and inflate their egos and accomplish little more. It is really necessary in this racket, to develop one’s own shtick – to forge one’s act in isolation. Such is the life of the Hermit.
Walk softly, but carry a big shtick. Such is the saying of the Mad Prophet.
To find one’s link with the Infinite, and to contact that and to communicate with it: such is the Law!
A shorthand illustration is called for here. Perhaps the most basic ritual in the Western Esoteric Tradition is the Pentagram Ritual. Lesser or Greater, it matters little. The Ritual is far more than merely a “protective circle casting” as some would have it. It facilitates Contact, if used as the basic template from which to develop the fully-blown rituals that we get in the Z-2 and other formulae.
It is, in effect, a form of Kawwanah, or mystical prayer-meditation employed by Kabbalists for centuries.
The Ritual as we have it, comes to us from the Golden Dawn cycle of rituals and knowledge lectures. However, its distant parent was the “Conjuration of the Four” published by Eliphas Levi. The Conjuration of the Four is a Ritual used by the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, in its Initiation ceremonies. It, too, is a development of an earlier cycle of rituals, employed by its predecessors in the Fratres Lucis, and before that, the Asiatic Brethren.
These, in their turn, go back to the Gold Rosicrucians AND THE authentic Kabbalah, embodied in the teachings and practices of Jacob Frank, Sabbatai Zevi, and so forth, ultimately taking us to the dawn of Kabbalah in the Languedoc, when Isaac the Blind of Posquières and his circle achieved communication with Elijah on the Day of Atonement early in the 12th Century of the Common Era. For more on this, we recommend Allen’s book, Roots of Magick: 1700 thru 2000 - as well as some of the material to be found on the Antiquities of the Illuminati website (
I, too, have my own Secret Rituals. These are based upon the foundation ritual of the Western Esoteric Tradition, the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram, as modified by Aleister Crowley. These Rituals, developed over the years, are effective, particularly since I HAVE NOT exposed them to the public, particularly to the email forum public, that splits hairs over juvenile trivia and pushes people away who may actually have more to offer at the table than the flatulence that is generally the rule of the day.
Such are those who make a lot of noise, and have the audacity to accuse those who have something to say of making noise but possessing no signal. In a place where the signal is dead to begin with, the old saw applies: the pot calling the kettle black.
Some of these “Secret Rituals” are exposed in part, however, in the artwork that illustrates these works, and “valuable to those who can read between the lines” – as it were.
At some point we may lift a corner of the veil to the sanctuary for a little while.
Men in Black
Who, then, are the Men in Black?
In the context explored here, they are the great Mystery men of the Authentic Tradition, in part; and they can also be those entities or forces that show up or are summoned forth in rituals of Ceremonial Magick, in part. In addition, in the classical UFOlogy model, they are those mysterious beings that usually appear in threes, arriving out of nowhere, for the purpose of silencing those who would go public with knowledge about UFOs. UFOlogists, for the most part, do not like the Men in Black.
They constitute a pestilence. They create mischief. They steal pictures.
At the outset of the project I embarked upon, to make these two books of Allen’s available to the public, it was made clear that we wanted to avoid the typical stereotyping that the Men in Black get in the publishing world, on the web, in movies and so forth. So, this is not going to be that particularly delightful episode of the X-Files with the black Cadillacs appearing out of nowhere.
No black Cadillacs, or any other old vehicles of a similar cast. No groups of three men wearing black suits from the forties. Darn, I love those black suits. I have my own. I get into Jewish weddings and don’t have to don the yarmika! Is it any coincidence that the Magician’s clothing usually consists of a black robe, cap, and other accoutrements?
Seriously, though, there is a lineage involved. It is that which is pointed to here in this book. Sometimes it involves the classical Western personalities who get placed on the lists of saints and grand masters. Sometimes it includes other personalities. Personalities perhaps less well-known than those in the tourist literature. Personalities that are mentioned in this book, thereby allowing the interested student to research them on their own time.
A few words now, on a related subject. That subject is the “Johannite Tradition” – a tradition I have been researching, writing about and practicing for nearly fifteen years, and one which Allen has been researching, writing about and practicing for decades. Unbeknownst to each other, we have formed a very wide definition for what is termed “Johannite” – not merely the Johannism that is usually applied to an obscure Templar revival of the late 18th / early 19th centuries.
Our Johannism goes back to the beginnings of “contacteeism” on Planet Earth.
True, it’s been written about, but without the nomenclature, by Zecharia Sitchin in his Earth Chronicles series. We would be foolish to hold that series to be the source, however, for our research. Instead, we have drawn from the sources he employed, where we can find or gain access to them. We recognize the value of the various franchise works like that: they point to the sources.
We first read of the Oannes in The 12th Planet.
We also read of it in works on Masonry and the Western Esoteric Tradition, like Manly Palmer Hall’s Secret Teachings of All Ages, Mackenzie’s Royal Masonic Cyclopaedia, and other sources like that. Later, we ran across allusions to it in Holy Blood, Holy Grail (or works based on it, such as GENISIS, by David Wood) in reference to the Neptunian Quinotaur, the marine animal that impregnated the mother of the first Merovingian king.
We also came across a large amount of the source material in Shklovskii’s and Sagan’s book, Intelligent Life in the Universe; some writings of H. P. Lovecraft dealing with the rites associated with Dagon; and other things. By the time we finally obtained a copy of The Sirius Mystery, we had already seen earlier source materials. What became clear to me, and a bone of contention with many who prefer to disagree out of stubbornness, is that the names given to the Oannes, Annedotus, et al., are etymologically related to the name Jonathan, and not so much to the name John.
The name Jonathan meaning YAH HAS GIVEN; the name John meaning the name GOD IS GRACIOUS. We had run across the name of Jon in an apocryphal letter to a Brazilian Mason and it piqued our curiosity. Later we found that the name was important, in a different form as Dositheos, the successor of that other John – John the Baptist, and predecessor to Simon Magus, said to be the fountainhead of the Gnosis.
This is all familiar territory for those who have read my writings on the subject so I must write in shorthand, since this is just an introductory essay. When I obtained copies of Crowley texts that I had not possessed before my access to the internet commenced, I found that indeed, the name John was employed in a very auspicious manner in not only a “Secret Ritual” but in a Mystery Play – a Play that bears a relationship to a series of engravings and paintings, by Poussin, Madathanus, Lambert and others.
I am pleased to see that I am not the only person who has reached these conclusions – conclusions that when they were detective’s hunches seemed outrageous and far-fetched.
As a recap to the ideas I expressed in the first part of this introduction, namely that of the evolution of ritual, and the personalization of ritual for the purpose of achieving that contact, I can say that Qadosh: the Johannite Tradition, is truly one of those Secret Rituals, and a key teaching to those who seek to find their place in the scheme of things pertaining to “the Path”.
That should tie together the two concepts nicely, and whet your appetite for that which follows, so….
Fall to!

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.

The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.

A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
