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.

“…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.’”

PHERYLLT 3 – Completion of Pheryllt “Books of Fferyllt” Trilogy Series by Joshua Free

In ancient Keltia, the Druid Order consisted of learned ones, those educated in Bardic Arts: cosmology and spirituality, natural-native history and geology, legendary history of heroes and mythology, healing and botanical medicine, astrononmy and astronology, and of course ‘magic’ – all of which are hidden in lines of Bardic verse and the researches of those who study them. As primary preservers of Celtic and Druid Mysteries, it is no wonder that Bardic Druids were considered the transmitter or catalyst of -awen- the essence, Divine Spark or spirit of inspiration that the Greeks termed ‘gnosis’. It is to the ‘ebb and flow’ of the -awen field- that the magical and poetic genius of the Bard is attributed.

Preservation of ancient knowledge is key among all elite orders of the ages. This Ancient Mystery School is timeless and spans all places on Earth. Past mystical cultures often relied on elite orders of scribe-priests and poet-magicians to bridge ancestral roots and traditions with the future – orders rooted in ‘languages’, ‘communication’, and above all the written word. The poetic genius of “awen” – the Divine Spark of Creation – manifests throughout all creative arts and as the spirt of “prophecy,” an ability to observe experiences with a heightened awareness and communicate it in the World of Form. Druidism is, therefore, an echo of this “poetic genius,” an amalgamation of collected knowledge preserved by the ancient elite, including a mystical and scientific understanding of the world that eluded the perceptual range of ‘common’ folk.

A unique metaphysical apprenticeship combining diverse facets of knowledge – from practical magic, to Welsh Bardic tradition, to Celtic history, or even foreign philosophies assimilated by the Druids – all appear in Douglas Monroe’s Merlyn Trilogy under a premise of being derived from the Book of Pheryllt (or Books of Fferyllt); a collective ‘body’ of Druidic wisdom also called the Body of the Dragon. As such, a wide array of sources and subjects were required to develop an allegorical facsimile (but legitimately authentic) manifestation of the Book of Pheryllt consistent with the mysterious manner in which Bards and Druids conceal and reveal the secret tradition. Considering the sheer variety of citations and scattered references in Monroe’s work, meeting justifiably high requirements and expectations for the ‘Body of the Dragon’ would require more than one volume to be complete and follow protocols – actually three volumes: a TRIAD interwoven as ONE.

Many antiquated scholarly references to the “Books of Fferyllt” or the “Pheryllt” themselves may be found (included or paraphrased in the current Book of Pheryllt trilogy series facsmile). Whatever bits trickle down from classical literature and antiquarian druidism to satisfy a modern thirst for the ‘pheryllt paradigm’ have been collected together in one place – a sacred book once thirded and now made whole – forming a complete sourcebook of undefiled lore. Whatever name, guise, or title we might attribute to the ‘Body of the Dragon’ – and we have chosen PHERYLLT – this same lore (originally accessible to few) serves as basis for the majority of Celtic and neo-Druidic revival of the past few centuries; whether or not it has been given due credit as such.

Several different cycles of important Celtic and Welsh literature and lore – Hanes Taliesin, Cad Goddeu, the Gwarchans, Cymric Triads, the books of Aneurin, Taliesin, Myrddin… – are all found in the Iolo Manuscripts including the Myvyrian Archaeology anthology and Barddas. In fact, we can essentially trace the abundant wealth of surviving Welsh MS. – including the Mabinogion – back to “Iolo Morganwg” (Edward Williams) and manuscripts ascribed to “Llywelyn Sion.” Where a thick scholarly aura accumulated from years of controversy may surround the ‘authenticity’ of some of these manuscripts, valid substitution shortages have bound the modern revival specifically to these available texts and the tradition gleaned from them.

The Book of Pheryllt trilogy of volumes edited by Joshua Free (also collected together in one volume in the forthcoming “Pheryllt -or- Body of the Dragon” anthology to be released later this year) is the realization of a legendary tome collecting wisdom passed down from an equally legendary ‘priesthood’ known in the histories of the Druids as the PHERYLLT (pronounced FAIR-ee-llt or VAIR-ult) – those who resided in the ancient Snowdonian mountains of northern Wales. There, they inhabited an ‘ambrosial city’ named for its mysterious founder, PHARAON (FAR-ah-on), meaning ‘higher powers’ and possibly alluding to the ‘celestial’ authority of a “Pharaoh.” Perhaps it is the practice of “Druid Craft” to call down ‘higher powers’ to conjure inspiration and magic in the world – perhaps that is what Ceridwen is doing where Taliesin the Bard writes: – “She took to the crafts of the Books of Fferyllt to boil a cauldron of awen.” According to our modern ‘Neo-Pheryllt’ tradition, a manuscript known as the Book of Pheryllt exists from the 16th Century collection attributed to Llywelyn Sion of Glamorgan Wales. Along with its companion volume, Barddas, also purportedly by Llywelyn Sion, the manuscripts moved from the library of Owen Morgan (“Morian”) to the private collection of the Albion Lodge of the United Ancient Order of Druids in Oxford (an ancient stronghold of the Pheryllt Order noted by Ralph Waldo Emerson).
