ILLUMINATION – Purpose and Function of Secret Societies & The End of Mardukite Transparency (A New Babylonian Illuminati?)

“ALL THINGS OUGHT NOT TO BE DECLARED TO ALL MEN” reads the back of the latest public release from the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press, the tercentenary edition of John Toland’s PANTHEISTICON, enhanced and annotated by Joshua Free, known for his emphasis of the Welsh Bardic Druids motto: The Truth Against The World.

“To know the Truth is one thing, to tell it others is another thing: and as all men profess to admire the first, so few men practice the last as they ought. At the same time the Truth is owned to be more valuable than wealth or honor, there are by most without hesitation preferred before it, which appears not only by their eager application to procure riches and titles, while they abandon the study of Truth, or faintly pursue it.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

Mixed and curious reactions were raised this month when modern Mardukite Director, Joshua Free, announced a progressive shift in the future operations of the organization toward “esoteric” development among a new “advanced” “Order” from within the Mardukite Research Organization, drawing from the “best” and “highest” axioms, aphorisms and philosophies actually underlying all of the “outer circle” materials published by Joshua Free (under various names) since the mid-1990’s.

#pantheisticon

“…no room was left for the propagating of Truth, except at the expense of a man’s life, or at least of his honor and employments, whereof numerous examples may be alleged. The Philosophers therefore, and other well-wishers to mankind in most nations, were constrained by this holy tyranny to make use of a two-fold doctrine; the one popular, accommodated to the masses, prejudices of the vulgar, and to the received customs or religions: the other philosophical, conformable to the nature of things, and consequently to Truth; which, with doors fast shut and under all other precautions, they communicated only to friends of known probity, prudence and capacity.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

Established officially as an ‘underground parent organization’ in 2008, coinciding with the release of ARCANUM by Joshua Free, Mardukite Ministries governs worldwide operations of several divisions, including the “Mardukite Chamberlains” (Mardukite Research Organization) best known for the release of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI LEGACY cycle of materials since 2009. Another division, the “NexGen Systemological Society,” launched in 2011 with its own “New Thought” materials such as REALITY ENGINEERING, in addition to overseeing both: the “Druid Archives” (publications including THE DRUID COMPLEAT cycle by Joshua Free and his forthcoming BOOK OF PHERYLLT Source-Book Anthology from Kima Books); and the “Moroii ad Vitam (Paramus)” (Mardukite Vampyre Academy) public launch in 2015, immortalized by Joshua Free’s VAMPYRE MAGICK anthology (including V: VAMPYRE’S BIBLE and CYBERNOMICON materials).

“There are two sorts of philosophy and science in the world, the one according to Truth, the other according to Opinion; keeping in mind the fallacious nature and uncertainty of the senses, which often represent things otherwise than they are in themselves, and must therefore be examined and corrected by true reason. From the senses arises opinion, and from reason, demonstration: on the former are huddled up the prejudices of the vulgar, following the bare appearance of things; on the latter are founded the axioms of the wise, who consider things as they are in themselves.”

“For example, Parmenides in his Exoterics (or books accommodated to the public taste) says ‘..fire and water are the beginning or principle of all things’, as if he had acknowledged the world to have been created: but that in his Esoterics (or books compiled according to the Truth) he says ‘the Universe is one, infinite, and immutable.’ Here not only the distinction of Exoterics and Esoterics is literally to be learned, but an example of it likewise alleged; namely, a beginning of things Exoterically, but Esoterically, the eternity and incorruptibility of the Universe.”
PANTHEISTICON (CLIDOPHORUS EXCERPT)

…and so we are at the crossroads of exoterica and esoterica, as Joshua Free explained in recent discussions with the “Mardukite Alumni” and “Council of Nabu-Tutu” concerning the progressive evolution and unfolding of the highest ideals of the pursuit on the path, marked previously by a “public demonstration” of “prodigious research and demonstration” of external applications of Truth and its varied patinas in the Ancient Mystery School throughout the books available by Joshua Free from the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” – to which very few people have truly explored to find the depths intended, and it is hardly ever the message by which it is packaged on the surface.

Just as we have “rebooted” the emphasis of early materials and Year-1 work again for newcomers during our 10TH ANNIVERSARY seasons, this clearly presents us with one more reason of need for an ‘inner’ “Secret Society” for those who genuinely over the past decade already used and explored the “Exoteric Mardukite Library” independently and are actually ready for something greater, meanwhile many people are still now only discovering their first steps and progressing or advancing their unfolding consciousness at their own pace. But… the time has come for some of us to charge ahead using the medium of an “Esoteric Mardukite Library” in supplemental exclusion. Unlike previous materials, these will be available ONLY via personal arrangement directly from the ‘Mardukite Offices’. Meanwhile, the exoteric map for others still remaining in our wake as some go forth toward the summit. All progress at their own rate. None are “left” behind. But likewise none can be thwarted on the upward progress of their own spiritual evolution and illumination. The Law of Balance will compensate – and the lips of wisdom will speak to ears of understanding!

“The Egyptians, like the Chaldean Babylonians, who were among the wisest of mortals, had a twofold doctrine: the one secret, and in that very respect ‘sacred’ and the other popular and consequently vulgar. Who is there, that is ignorant of their sacred letters, hieroglyphics, forms, symbols, enigmas, and fables? Far and near was spread the fame of the Egyptian Philosophy, ‘Concealing things under the appearance of fables,’ says Plutarch, ‘and in speeches that contained obscure indications and arguments of the Truth: which they themselves expressly declare, by placing sphynxes before most of their Temples; thus indicating that their doctrine concerning sacred things, consists in a sort of wisdom which is designedly perplexed, and lying hidden under studied veils.’”

The Most Ancient Sacred Library… at your fingertips! Once Reserved for the Elite: Secrets of Cosmology-Science-Mysticism… Revealed!

Contemporary understanding of ancient civilizations is botched — pure and simple. Where much is uncovered even today, consistently shifting our opinions and timelines stretching around the globe, it cannot be dismissed that in spite of the myriad of findings and symbols among scattered remains, it is the cuneiform tablet libraries of ancient Mesopotamia (what is now Iraq; formerly Sumer and Babylon) that truly give us the first true writing systems. And although we like to call them “books” today, no such objects existed at that time — instead, an entire tradition of preserving knowledge and scientific mysteries emerged in the form of clay tablets, written in a script-style known as cuneiform (and named for its ‘wedge-shaped’ marks).

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (10th Anniversary Seventh Edition)

Prolific author and prodigious mystic and philosopher, JOSHUA FREE, has been actively involved in the underground and so-called “New Age” movement for nearly 25 YEARS, first known as “Merlyn Stone” in the mind-1990’s. His personal occult notebooks as a teenager, such as the “Draconomicon” and especially his “Sorcerer’s Handbook” (with more than 2000 copies in circulation before he was 18 years old), have influenced the development of modern practitioners and their traditions for two decades! Pivotal more-intermediate editions such as “Book of Elven-Faerie” and especially the release of “Arcanum: Great Magical Arcanum” literally launched the modern Mardukite movement more than 10 years ago! But where the subject of the Mardukite resurgence is concerned, the most inseparable of all works by Joshua Free is a literary collection known today as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE.

“So, in the ancient Realm we peer into, we find not books, but clay tablets; no bibles, but specialized tablet collections — sometimes kept in wooden or gilded boxes, for the elite class of Mesopotamia were all literate. And “temples” of priest-scribes preserved the most ancient knowledge of cosmology, science and etheric spirituality on clay tablets in cuneiform scripts, some more than 5000 years old today. And these were no obscure symbolic primitive picture-glyphs, but explicitly detailed renderings — albeit quite mystifying to the common-folk of the general population who could not read, who could not decipher the mysteries themselves to the degree of that intellectual dimension. Maintaining an Order to the ancient commonwealth, ceremony, traditions and other culture emerged from this lore, but on a public exoteric level designed primarily for the masses with little direct access or discernment of the cuneiform tablets themselves. Such was, as it always has been, kept closely guarded under the highest or most secret echelons of the Realm, who maintained their own lineage of societies within, albeit also separate and apart from, the surface world. Such is what provides us with the substance to work through this work today under its present guise…[the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible]” — explains Joshua Free, from a recent “Knowledge Lecture” at the Mardukite Babylon Ancient Astronomy Research Office.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is now celebrating its release of a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition, the most complete, economical and accessible printing of the original ‘Mardukite Core’ anthology in a decade, just in time for a (NexGen) new generation of Truth Seekers. Of course, it is essential reading for any Mardukite, but even beyond this specific semantic paradigm, it is a must-read for anyone considering themselves a “Truth Seeker.” It is intriguing and refreshing to see this forgotten lore so painstakingly researched from a perspective that is both anthropological and historical, not to mention mystical and spiritually nourishing.

JOSHUA FREE

As a Mardukite Alumni once commented about the work, “Resulting from a [then] fifteen-year journey into the source of ‘New Age’ metaphysical mysteries of the underground, JOSHUA FREE had fallen upon what appeared to be a pure current-stream back to the sources of the most ancient and coveted Babylonian tradition…”

The “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible” edited by Joshua Free is quite simply a masterpiece of Mesopotamian magic, spirituality and history, providing a complete collection – a grand symphony of correlated materials – of the most ancient writings on the planet.

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition

The oldest of these Sumerian and Babylonian cuneiform tablet records reveal detailed accounts of cosmic history in the universe and on earth, the development of human history and descriptions of world order – all of which were used to maintain spiritual and physical control of humanity – providing to be the predecessor and foundation of global scripture-based religious and mystical traditions thereafter. These raw underground materials have shaped the existence of man’s beliefs and traditions for thousands of years; right from the heart of the Ancient Near East: Sumer, Babylon and even Egypt!

Nearly a decade since the modern Mardukite inception – and thousands of copies in print – the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is a revolutionary “New Age” advancement in authentic historical, spiritual and mystical research drawn from a unique unparalleled combination of archaeological findings and esoteric mystical magical traditions. Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Yezidic, Zoroastrian… and more.

A SECRET ANUNNAKI RETURN – Stargates, End-Times & Hidden Keys of the Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible

“When examining thousands of years of esoteric lore it becomes evident that after love, money and material power, the apocalypse or opening gates to unleash some primordial force into the world is the next most common effort made by magick-users throughout the ages. For every magician of order and harmony there is a warlock of chaos and discord. For every divine name or Tetragrammaton there is that coveted unspeakable word (or vibration) believed to undue all systems of the material world: the Uncreation, as some call it. Even hidden in the infrequently touched crevices of Enochian magick and Kabbalistic lore such teachings exist.” –Joshua Free, in his introduction essays to the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible” (now available as a 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition).

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE
(10th Anniversary Seventh Edition)

According to our “Book of Star Gates” [Tablet B] there is a correlation…

“…between these ‘Gates’ and the ‘Seals of the Apocalypse,’ or that is to say the ‘Armageddon Clock’ of humanity that has been set forth…the Earth Planet and local system moves through it’s own initiatory ‘Ladder of Lights’ and the finality of this coincides with the opening of the ‘Quadrangles,’ meaning the ‘Gates’ of the ‘Four Corners’ of the Universe – to the outside! These Gates do not open all at once but instead ‘swing wide’ gradually over time…”


NO ROOM FOR THE WICKED – IN THE ANUNNAKI “NEW AGE”
an-un-na-ki ti-i-ru u na-an-za-zu
May the Anunnaki Return and Be Established!

In spite of dark connotations falsely enshrouding these mysteries in the “outer world” — Most practitioners drawn to this path are not sympathetic to the destruction and malignant energies manifested by the “human” population on the planet. [A species correctly dubbed by T.H. White as “homo ferox” in his “Book of Merlyn”].

(It is this very malignant, vicious and violent nature of “humans” that forced the Anunnaki to leave earth in the first place – as did many now otherworldly races that have fled the sheer numbers and crude weapons of humans. Beings that once physically cohabited with humans on earth!)

It seems to some that the only solution to protect the integrity of “the Big Picture,” even beyond the next “seven generations,” requires reincorporation of original source powers that originally brought this all into being at its inception. Whether or not this energy can actually coincide with the current human systems in place – becomes the last of our concerns.


THE MAGIC “BEHIND” THE MAGICK

NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE
10th Anniversary Limited Edition

It would seem that the contemporary New Age community, that is self-proclaimed as “enlightened” too often misses the liberation of the era shift, for they quickly replace one system for another. The ‘divinity’ that once communicated regularly with priests and sages of the ancient world left us with clues. These clues are reinterpreted today as either blatant fantasy or as yet another mirror of Christianized divinity with “mythological” names and attributes. The more effective ritualists and wizards of the current era have not succumbed to the same when discussing matters of “gods” and “spirits.”

Consider even these words of Aleister Crowley:
“My observation of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human… and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole… is for individuals to make contact with these beings. …Our work is therefore historically authentic; the rediscovery of the Sumerian tradition…”

And so it seems quite different then the average New Ager’s perspective of the “spirit world,” discarnate ancestors and other entities bound to a book of spells, that leading members of this movement throughout the ages have understood that it is the contact with these specific beings, Gatekeepers to our Universe (and perhaps even our Creators as the most ancient lore would have us understand), which makes up the true and coveted magick of the ages, the very keys to our universe and material existence…

Mardukite 10-Year Anniversary Celebrated with Legendary Books and Tomes of Magick by Joshua Free


FOR TEN YEARS the “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” has delivered an aggressively refined methodology for the new ‘NexGen’ breed of eclectic esoteric seekers as “Mardukite Babylonians” — reviving the banner name of the first spiritual and political rebels in history, those who rose up against the Enlilite Sumerians in seemingly prehistoric Babylon, but in fact they are the times that literally defined history, the oldest true writing system (cuneiform) and systems of human civilization that have grown and advanced since then but are very much present among us today.

Modern “Mardukite Babylonians” study the nature of these things among many other aspects of magic, mysticism and metaphysics (beyond the realm of Mesopotamia and Ancient Near East) with the MARDUKITE.COM and NECROGATE.COM sites dedicated to publications of “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” celebrating the incredible underground literary work and prolific prodigious contributions of Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s). Since childhood, Joshua Free has dedicated his entire life to the archetype of legendary books and tomes of magick – those such as the Necronomicon and Book of Pheryllt.

After being received into the library and self-made traditions of hundreds and even thousands of mystical, metaphysical and “New Age” practitioners since the mid-1990’s – writing under the name of “Merlyn Stone” for such popular underground publications as THE SORCERER’S HANDBOOK (now available in a commemorative 20th Anniversary) – Joshua Free is most famous for the inception of the modern “Mardukite” movement with the release of ARCANUM: THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM on the Summer Solstice (June 21) 2008 (now observing its 10th Anniversary).

The Mesopotamian-oriented faction of active researchers and esoteric mystical practitioners known as the “Mardukite Chamberlains” was later solidified with the original volume of the ‘Mardukite Core’, best known as the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE (edited by Joshua Free). [Other anthologies edited by Joshua Free for the ‘Mardukite Core’ include “Gates of the Necronomicon,” “Necronomicon Grimoire,” “History of the Necronomicon” and “Secrets of Sumerian Language.”]

Coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of the “Mardukite” tradition is the early-release of the 10th Anniversary (Seventh Edition) of Joshua Free’s complete NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE tablet anthology – inspired by the aura of what it is named for, but wholly based in historical records that completed work that former manifestations only seemed to allude to (in the Mesopotamian context). For example, previous serious practitioners realized the Simon recension was incomplete at best, alluding not to the Enlilite traditions common to the “Sumerians,” but rather to the “Mardukite” tradition raised by ancient Babylonians in honor of Marduk, firstborn son of Enki, ruler of men and gods from his shrine-temple ziggurat in Babylon, the Tower of Babel.

The range of work by “Mardukite Chamberlains” leading up to the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE included lengthy discourses with other researchers, unceasing hours in abandoned corners of old libraries and museums, participation in sessions with other practicing occultists and even visits to “artifact rooms” and “tablet collections” at the University of Pennsylvania and Chicago among others, including the library and museum at Rosicrucian Park.

The resulting culmination became nothing like anyone expected: an authentic and verifiable vision for the “Mesopotamian Necronomicon” salvaged from the shifting desert sands of time in the Middle East and Egypt, unparalleled by anything already available to Truth Seekers. It appeared to be the most complete collection of ancient writings on the planet that formed the very foundation of all the human traditions and beliefs that would emerge thereafter. “Mardukite Truth Seeker Press” spent 2009 through 2012 dedicated to perfection and enhancement of NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE materials, newly revised and updated for the 10th Anniversary Seventh Edition to be the most accessible, complete and economical edition in the history of the modern “Mardukite” legacy.

This famous “Mardukite” version of the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free, is not Lovecraftian or Simonian (while it could possibly serve to offer validity to proponent materials from both sources for those who seek it), neither is it “dangerous” or a “hoax” (though those who fear the revelation of these truths for the world will think it the former and label it the later). Thousands of people have now discovered that Joshua Free’s NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE is the single most ancient and pure unaltered lore concerning the hottest topics of our time and all times, including divinity, creation, human origins, aliens, religion, pantheistic magickal traditions, alternate dimensions, portals and the afterlife. He explains: – “In this new millennium of uncertainties, it is most likely that the uncovering of the past will reveal our future.”

Merlyn Stone
(Joshua Free)

Although now best known for his work on Sumerians, the Anunnaki and Babylonian Tradition for the “Mardukites,“ work and involvement by Joshua Free with the Secret Dragon (Elven) Legacy and modern Pheryllt Druid Tradition is also paramount. In addition to his own collected works anthology — THE DRUID COMPLEAT comprised of “Book of Elven-Faerie,” “Draconomicon” and “Book of Druidry” — his writing has even been used within the third volume completing the classic bestselling ‘Merlyn Trilogy’ by Douglas Monroe: THE DEEPTEACHINGS OF MERLYN published by Kima Global Books in 2011. Kima has also agreed to publish Joshua Free’s forthcoming BOOK OF PHERYLLT ‘Druid Source Book’ anthology later this year, further making our Anniversary year truly a pivotal year indeed!

The Magical World of Joshua Free – A Road Paved with Druids, Elves and Wizards

(Joshua Free as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s)

With more than two active decades in the underground “New Age” and occult scene (known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s), over 20 unique arcane texts in print (not including collected anthologies), and now a decade spent as presiding director of the modern Mardukite movement – you may have already experienced some piece of the magical world of Joshua Free personally or more likely one of the many very publicly visible facets of culture and industry that he has influenced from behind the scenes.

Having so adeptly remained in the underground for so many years, it is quite possible that you have never actually read one of these critically acclaimed esoteric and arcane underground bestselling classics by Joshua Free and there is no better time than now to reap the benefits of the experience. Many of the original beloved titles (from 1996–2008) now appear in a special economical anniversary collection available to the new generation of seekers and returning patrons alike.

Joshua Free (also known as “Merlyn Stone” in the 1990’s) released many amazing resources for the modern occultist many years before his launch of the Mardukite organization (primarily emphasizing Mesopotamian studies). Starting with the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK and DRACONOMICON from the 1990’s and continuing with the BOOK OF DRUIDRY and BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERIE in (the earliest part of) the new millennium – thousands of copies of books by Joshua Free were in circulation before writing his magickal magnum opus to date, the infamous ARCANUM materials, first completed at age twenty-four!

When the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK premiered in 1998, the first edition was printed from an old-fashioned typewriter. It was originally reproduced and bound by a (local) Denver Colorado copy-center until they decided to actually read it one day… then they refused serviced because they were afraid of the spiritual implications of having anything to do with it. Thus began a tradition of Joshua Free self-producing his own books long into his days of more commercial distribution. After circulating in the underground for a few months, a second edition was printed exclusively for members of the “Elven Fellowship Circle of Magick” and the “Order of the Crystal Dawn,” two interconnected underground occult organizations in Colorado using the text as a Book of Shadows in the late 1990’s.

Although best known now for his work pertaining specifically to Sumerian and Babylonian paradigms (especially Anunnaki subjects), over twenty years ago, Joshua Free became active in another prominent underground movement – Pheryllt Druidism – a tradition he was initiated into at the age of twelve and remains active in today as a protege of Douglas Monroe. DRACONOMICON began as a notebook kept from the earliest periods of initiation when personal research led into all matters of “Dragons.” It has been revised, changed and enhanced four times prior to reaching its current state – marking nearly twenty years of neodruidic influence before inspiring the release of a separate “Pheryllt” series/trilogy of materials by Joshua Free (of which PHERYLLT I and PHERYLLT II have been released).

Materials from Joshua Free’s original initiation notebooks (not necessarily specific to dragons) was released to the underground as THE BOOK OF DRUIDRY in 2001, forming a second part of the “Druid Compleat” series/trilogy of materials (also available as an anthology of the same title). The other title in this series, THE BOOK OF ELVEN-FAERE, is not only a masterpiece of Druidry and Celtic Magical Tradition in its own right – It also served as a basis of inspiration (along with materials from all the above mentioned titles) to begin the ARCANUM project and ultimately the inception of the Mardukite movement, publicly solidified in 2008 and rooted in these works before the establishment of the widely circulated ‘Mardukite Core‘ (presented as the Necronomicon series/cycle edited by Joshua Free).
