Its important to realise that in many ways, our celebrity culture has been just another manifestation of the apparently ingrained human need for religion. In the age of the atheist, we have begun to refer to it as the cult of celebrity because it displays all the tenets of a cultist religion. It invokes worship and derision, there are idols and icons, it has its own exoteric moral code in what we have labelled ‘liberal PC culture’ and even its own secret dark lodge in Scientology and other related Crowleyist, quasi masonic orders. We hold these people up to specific public scrutiny and they become saints, martyrs or devils according to how they are portrayed by media, and we crucify them when they fall from grace. This is religion folks, its scandalized, hyperbolic, capitalist religion, but it’s religion nonetheless.
It would seem that through generations of reiteration, our moral structure has evolved to essentially be one that promotes altruism at best, and survival at worst, but in the argument of nature verses nurture we see a clear indication that although humans appear to learn altruism through maturity, it is easy to subvert that maturity by cutting a human being off from his natural mental evolution that occurs through interaction and the realisation of the need to live in co-operation with his ecosystem and more importantly, his peer group, and instead forcibly teach a doctrine, whether it be some form of self supremacy or religious indoctrination, that ‘liberates’ the individual from the burden of that responsibility. This is what the Cremation of Care ritual carried out at Bohemian Grove every year is about. It is a religion of absolving the individual for the moral crimes he must commit to advance the great work. There can be absolutely no doubt of the similarity to Bohemian Grove and the Tophet.
The Bohemians and the Kabbalists of this world realised long ago that the grip of the church was slipping and that the mass media was the alter at which people would pray, the church through which the public would gain their worldview and set their moral code. Knowing this, they were the ones, through their control of the vast masonic network, who ensured that they would be disseminating the worldview by ensuring they were the ones who created and controlled the media and its outlets. This is how they would begin Alice Bailey and Aleister Crowley’s great ‘Externalisation of the Hierarchy’, by using the media as the fountainhead from which the revelation of the method would occur.
So when we hear someone like Jolie talk about the occult practice of cleansing through pain, it is important to look at how that has been seeded into out own culture and understand that this is not an actress talking about wild parties, its a black magician talking about occult ritual. One of the reasons I initially became so interested in this subject as a whole is that I myself fell headlong into one of the archetypal straight off the production line sub-cultures that I was unwittingly given to choose from. I was a ‘metalhead’, straight out of the 80’s, I was weaned on Metallica and Megadeth, I bought Metal Hammer and Kerrang! and chewed them up. I got into tribal warfare with dance music fans and as I became ever more elitist and arrogant about my own ‘taste in music’ I found myself reading books about my icons and dressing in black, embracing gothdom and all the horrific Emo-ness it entailed, I began being loudly atheist and bashing religions of every stripe, I became a quasi communist ironic satanist, because that’s what my ‘heroes’ were, anachronistic to popular culture and a contrarian in every sense. Thing is, you know exactly what I’m talking about, you all knew someone like me, you probably still do, hell I know a fucking shit-ton of them, we all used to go to the same gigs, and that’s because we were a herd, a group of people who were attracted to one of the many cookie cutter counter culture’s offered by the corporate magi. That kind of thing has been going on since the so-called counter culture first gained traction.
And that’s really the point. You’ll be glad to know I’m somewhat recovered now. Somewhere in the mess of misanthropy I discovered that what I actually liked about Metallica and Megadeth and Dreamtheater was their incredibly well crafted classically inspired but brutal thrash metal, so I left the counter culture behind and turned my obsessive brain toward the noble and spiritual craft of learning to play it on the guitar, and then I started writing my own music and got together with some amazing dudes who want to do the same thing, and now I am writing my own classically inspired yet brutal heavy metal and yes, widely grinning as I write that. But tangent aside, the baggage of reading Anton LaVey and Eliphas Levi and Alister Crowley never left me, and the more my academic venture into studying history began to wander into specifically studying masonic and occulted history and indeed, the history of the occult, I began to realise that there was a connection between the seemingly ubiquitous satanic imagery in heavy metal and the generally atheist attitudes, misanthropic worldview and extremely anti-christian vibe it tended to put out. I remain an ardent agnostic these days, so stepping back from the clique-ishness of it all I was able to look back and see how the popular media surrounding the subculture had endlessly divided the entire art into smaller sub-genres and how tribalistic everyone became about their chosen style. I was able to re-read the lyrical output and biographies of my heroes and recognise that actually, these people for the most part were not ironic Satanists at all, they were new-agers, they were theosophists, they were kabbalists, they spoke about Blavatsky and Crowley, the super famous ones understood their role and the wider role of art in the revelation of the method and they were willing to work with the right producers, promote the right image and revel in it all as the freedom of artistic expression, the same way that Lady Gaga does when she attends ‘spirit cooking’ dinners with Marina Abrahmovic. I re-read seemingly incoherent and obscure interviews in magazines like Kerrang! with people like Marilyn Manson or Tool and was suddenly able to go ‘holy shit, THAT’s what they were talking about’ or ‘So this is why they keep writing stories about that Norwegian Metal band that burned down the church’ etc.
One thing I noted specifically was that new-age mysticism was heavily promoted, in the more blatant examples like Mr. Manson, the promotion of the new age and it’s direct birth from Kabbalist movements like theosophy is sprawled out for anyone with the eyes to see. Like the Iommi’s and Paige’s before him, Brian Warner’s entire career is a masterwork in the revelation of the method. The other band I mention, Tool, are a far more intricate working. They are quick to humor when the Crowleyist aspect of their music is pointed out and indeed some of their merchandise is poking fun at the fact. But they are at the same time a band obsessed with sacred geometry and mapping it to music. Their music and artwork is a multilayered experience whose full understanding can be considered an initiatory process in itself, that is, after all, the entire point. Both Mariyln Manson and Tool are great examples of musicians who understand and view their music and careers as an act of alchemical transmutation and who view it as a privilege to have their art externalise the hierarchy. In relative terms Manson is a Jackson Pollock, whereas Tool are a Da Vinci but that is no slight on either, they are both playing a role.
But I do have some personal experience of how this can manifest into some bad choices, and it will allow me to come full circle and explain why I pointed to this particular revelation about Angelina Jolie in the first place and what it has to do with revelation of the method.
In those halcyon teenage spikey haired 90’s goth days I was telling you about before, I began to notice a disturbing trend. Rock and Metal moved away from the high concept influences of Rush and Dreamtheater, the hard realism of Metallica or the anti authoritarianism of Megadeth, into the social awareness of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine, but it increasingly moved from dealing with real world issues to personal ones, specifically parental abuse or neglect. There arose, around the pop-culture metal scene at least, a culture of first focusing on then kind of uncomfortably glorifying the most angst ridden, semi-cathartic, depressive content. as a result, the culture surrounding it became more and more misanthropic, depressive and nihilist. There was a sudden epidemic of depressed Emo’s and goths, all tribalistically fighting over their particular sub-genre and all pretending to be wiccans or being obsessed with vampires or zombies or death. As I’ve said, I had the candles in my room, the skull ashtray, I had pentagrams on everything and some offensive T-shirts. I read some weird books and pretended, despite my pretty sheltered upbringing, that I hated the world and nothing my parents had done was right and I was depressed. One of the things I had remembered a singer in Kerrang! talking about was cutting herself. How it released endorphin’s and acted like and anti-depressant, so at the times when I was at my most misanthropic and ‘depressed’ I would do the same. I’m not ashamed to admit that nowadays because to be honest, it was no more than a few times and I cottoned on pretty quickly that it didn’t seem like a very constructive way to deal with my perceived problems. What it did do however, was to give me some small appreciation for how such a ritual could become obsessive. Channeling and focusing that angst and then having that moment of ritual release was addicting. It was pleasurable on some level, the endorphins were definitely released.
Looking back having read the primary texts and seen how these ideas are seeded into popular culture, having gone through theosophy all the way to ritual sex magic I can look back and see that for exactly what it was. I can see how the idea of spiritual release or soul cleansing through bloodletting was presented in an entirely benign fashion through a magazine, and how if I were a little more impressionable or had actual problems to deal with, I could see how I could end up getting into this kind of ritual behavior, reading material that explains it and then seeking out other people who read the same stuff.

So when I see Angelina Jolie talking about bloodletting, taking care to make the distinction that it’s not sexual and not to be confused with S&M, I recognise what she’s talking about, and I know she has also read multiple Masonic and Crowleyist works on using ritual bloodletting and sexual magic to reach transcendental altered states of consciousness and make contact with the Godhead. This is the carrot offered to all initiates by the modern day priest class. I was lucky in that I wasn’t born into these cults. That stable upbringing I tried to rebel against allowed me to lock myself in a room until I learned all of “Master of Puppets”, Angelina’s upbringing forced her to interact with some of the most noted Kabbalists on the planet, there was really no escaping it for her.
She remains however, a perfect example of how artists, musicians and actors alike have for the most part, bought into the theology of Masonry, Kabbalah and Lucifarianism in general, and it lets us see how those at work behind them are using these media to externalise their moral code and their religious beliefs out into the wider mainstream. It truly works, through these icons, the theosophists can manifest their will with the consent of mainstream opinion, who don’t realise how that which divides us, gender, age, culture, raceis being manipulated to the extreme on all sides.
