Great Cross of Hendaye
Space is a dangerous place. Witness the number of crater hits on the many hard-surfaced planets in our solar system. Through telescopes, NASA cameras, or even with our own eyes, it is easy to see that every hard surfaced planet in our solar system is pock marked with crater hits. Mars, Mercury, the Moon, Venus, the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, all bear the traces of a long history of celestial bombardment.
Of course there are many other catastrophes and disasters that can occur that have their origins in outer space. Galactic explosions, gamma ray bursts, coronal mass ejections and various other scenarios, that could spell disaster for our fragile planet. However the greatest threat – again using our own eyes as witnesses – is the threat of a big rock slamming into the earth and upsetting life and possibly causing the mass extinction of many species. The fact that there is an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter with literally millions of rocks bouncing around like billiard balls also gives one pause as to how really dangerous it is in outer space.
But there is one place in our solar system that seems to have been spared, to a very large degree, the number of hits that appear to have struck other worlds. There is a place where visible evidence suggests that it has been incredibly lucky in not getting struck by these massive rocks with greater frequency. The fact that this place is relatively close to the asteroid belt and that its nearest neighbor, that lies less than 200,000 miles away from it, is severely pock-marked would suggest that this place is an anomaly in solar system physics. The place that I am referring to is our own little blue planet – the Earth.
There are craters on Earth, and yes it is true that the forces of wind, rain and erosion would quickly soften the edges of any impact. It is also true that three-fourths of the world is covered by water. This would hide many impacts. These facts are all true and beyond dispute. But even if one takes into account all of these facts, there is still very few traces of craters on the land masses of the Earth. Our neighbor, Mars, with its hundred mile-an-hour winds and sandstorms also suffers from the erosive effects of weather. Yet a quick glance at close up pictures of the red planet reveals that it has been hit many, many times in its past. Yet no trace of that kind of bombardment can be found on the hard surface areas of planet Earth. In fact, the craters here on Earth are such a rarity that they are usually tourist attractions as witnessed by the famous crater in Arizona. Some of the round lakes in northern Canada may qualify as ancient craters and we know that the Puerto Rican trench was made by a huge hit that occurred some 60 million years ago. But again the question must be asked – where are the large number of old crater hits on our planet?
That was the question I asked myself some years ago as my investigation into alchemy, Fulcanelli and all things celestial began. I realized that there were a number of strange coincidences that seems to surround our little planet. The fact that we have a Van Allen belt that stops dangerous radiation from penetrating our atmosphere is certainly a lucky break for us and for life. The fact that from our point of view here on Earth, the diameter of the moon covers the same degree of the sky is another one of these weird coincidences that has always bothered me. Why are the sun and moon the same size from our point of view? Just another coincidence, science tells us. Then, there is the strange orbit of the moon, which keeps over 40% of its surface hidden from our view forever. And finally, there is the fact that moon and the earth are nearly the same size. There is no other planet moon combination in the solar system where the two bodies are so close in size in relation to each other.
Our ancient ancestors had a much more sophisticated view of the stars and planets than our modern scientists and historians acknowledge. Based upon my years of research into the myth, history and sacred science of ancient civilizations, it is evident to me that our ancestors knew the location of the center of the galaxy and they had successfully mapped our planet’s place in the surrounding universe. It is also very likely that they knew that Sirius was a binary star and that there is a periodic explosion from the galaxy’s center.
Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye investigates a mysterious cross in a churchyard in Hendaye, France which is located in the southwest corner of France, right on the border with Spain. On one level, this book is a commentary upon The Mysteries of the Cathedrals written by the elusive, enigmatic and anonymous alchemist named Fulcanelli. However, it takes his alchemical thesis concerning the Earth’s periodic catastrophes and places it in the context of our present day experience.
Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye points out that there is every reason to believe that a spiritual/evolutionary leap in the human experience is about to occur. It discusses how the teachings and prophesies of the western and many eastern spiritual traditions are deeply concerned with our present time period. Even Nostredamus spoke about this time as the most important time period of all. Investigation into the Cyclic Cross at Hendaye revealed that the crucial period of time from 1992 to 2012 marks the end of time itself. Alchemy, as revealed in the book, is nothing less than a science watching the countdown to the final moments when the next species of humanity will emerge.
As the investigation continued other marvels were also discovered. The ancients knew about the hidden chemistry that resides in the endocrine system of every human. As the diverse threads of the research began to be woven together it became apparent that there were certain secretions that come directly from the human brain. These secretions apparently have the power to transform matter, grant a near immortal status to the seeker, and possibly assist in us becoming the seeds for stars. They are, in a sense, an evolutionary dynamic that has remained dormant for thousands of years.
But there was another aspect of this investigation that kept haunting me. It seemed that underneath the surface of history there were two forces at war with each other. And these two forces had their origins in ancient mythic Egypt. The first of these forces was centered on the Egyptian god Osiris and the other was centered on the Egyptian god Set. Set was the god of materialism and earthly desires. Portrayed as a reptile, Set killed his brother Osiris one day in a fit of jealousy. For this crime he was doomed to spend his days as a disembodied spirit. Although he was immortal, he could never actually occupy a body. But, according to legend, Set could enter into men’s minds and control them through the forces of greed, lust and power.
As time went on, this power, this Setian force, eventually grew into a powerful secret society called the Illuminati. The fact that they were anything but illumined didn’t seem to matter to this group. They sought total and complete dominion over the people and powers of this planet.
Realizing that humans had a deep inner power (the inner secretions of the brain) that eventually could overthrow them, the Setians, or the Illuminati, began putting controls and laws into effect that would eventually turn our race into a slavish, greedy and selfish lot. Any human that attempted to understand and realize what was really going on was quickly arrested, tortured and murdered. Afraid that they will perish in a celestial catastrophe, the Setians have created wars, terrorism, underground safety shelters, civil strife and corruption. All of this was done to keep the secret of our real human heritage away from us and to protect them from the future. A mere glance at the television or newspapers makes it abundantly clear that these forces are now in control of our planet. They have been in total control since 1948.
However all is not lost. The other group, the one that follows the principles of Osiris was and is still in existence. This group is dedicated to something completely different than the Illuminati. This group knows that there is a historical destiny for the human race. They believe that Set, and his minions, are trying to spiritually corrupt us so that we can never discover our own true power. This group cannot operate in such an open manner as the Illuminati, for they are the Illuminati’s sworn enemies. They know that their own discretion and secrecy is the only thing that can stop the Illuminati from finding them and murdering them – if that is indeed possible. They are called ‘The Keepers of the Light’.
This group of ‘light masters’ built the mysterious Cyclic Cross at Hendaye. Fulcanelli was, most likely, a member of this group. No matter what stories have been made up, or told, about the true identity of the man called Fulcanelli, there is one thing that stands out above all other facts. Whoever wrote Mystery of the Cathedrals had knowledge so profound and advanced that it would have been impossible for a charlatan, or anyone else, to write the book.
The Keepers of the Light wrote the book Mysteries of the Cathedrals to reveal their presence in history. Through this book they demonstrate that history itself is an initiation into another epoch of existence. And that it is necessary, at this time in human history, to choose between the Illuminati and the Keepers of the Light. Therefore, they have chosen this time to reveal their presence and to assure us that they are the guiding hands on the rudder of our story.
The forces of Set were nearly successful the last time a catastrophe hit our planet some 13,000 years ago. For some reason, according to legend, our ancestors became greedy and materialistic. The legends tell us that this greed somehow let the disaster happen. But there seemed no possible link between man’s greed and asteroid hits or galactic explosions.
Our book Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye reveals that a group of scientists/magicians survived that disaster 13,000 years ago. They did this by hiding in caves that are located high in the Andes Mountains. Legends from the Inca tell of a man named Viracoca who survived in a cave and eventually began rebuilding the lost civilization.
The book speculates that this ‘Viracoca cult’ spread out across the Earth. They seemed intent on accomplishing many tasks on this great mission. One of these tasks was to re-educate the refugees that they found scattered here and there across the globe. According to myths gathered from all across our world (see Graham Hancock’s Fingerprints of the Gods), this group came and re-educated the peoples of the Earth. Among the many things they taught were the arts of agriculture, writing, mythology and the warning of another possible celestial catastrophe that would happen if we ever became greedy and materialistic again.
After completing the huge task of helping humanity and re-invigorating sacred sites the Viracoca cult eventually settled in Egypt. From there they encoded all of their knowledge in the temples, monuments, legends and hieroglyphs of that great civilization. One of the most important monuments they built at this time was the Great Sphinx. The monumental statue acted as a warning about a catastrophe to come. ‘When the sun is in Leo – we are in danger’, the great Sphinx appears to be saying. As Fulcanelli says at the front of his book: ‘The Sphinx protects and controls science’.
The other thing that the Viracoca cult seemed intent on accomplishing was the reestablishment of sacred sites around the globe. In his book, Hancock speculates that many of the monuments, pyramids, calendars and other ancient works were initiated by the Viracoca cult.
Why would they spend so much time trying to reinvigorate the many sacred sites around the world? It was one thing to attempt to re-educate the refugees and to teach them how to care for themselves and each other. But why spend your time and effort on re-invigorating ancient beliefs that certain parts of the planet held a spiritual power? It didn’t make any sense. It was true that geomancy seemed to be prevalent among all ancient peoples of the Earth. Whether it was the Inca in Peru, the Druids in England, the Tibetans, or the Aborigines in Australia. They all contended that there was this spiritual power of place.
But was there more to this?
Geomancy, alchemy, knowledge of the movements of the stars, agriculture, writing, respect for women, mythology, refinement and a sense of sophistication became the primary group of knowledge that the Viracoca cult was attempting to convey.
But the forces of Set were always present. They were in an eternal struggle, or war, with the Viracoca cult. As discussed by my wife Sharron Rose and I in our article, Tolkien at the End of Time, around 6,500 years ago, the final age of the great tantric and alchemical cycle of human experience known as the Kali Yuga or Age of Iron began. Like the Elves and wizards of The Lord of the Rings, it was at this time that the Viracoca cult began to withdraw from history.
As the Iron Age progressed so did the power of the Setian forces. As they so much represent the ethos of the Iron Age, the Setians were assured of a victory – albeit temporary. But the forces of the Osiris, or the Viracoca cult, were not completely dormant. With their hand still firmly on the rudder of history they have been quietly directing the Setians towards a grand finale to this age.
As the Iron Age progressed, and the veils of darkness and corruption descended, there arose a religion that attempted to identify all of the above and encode it into their myths. This religion was the closest of all the modern religions to that of ancient Egypt. And the followers of this religion constantly wrote, prophesied and lived as if the end of the world were at hand. This religion was, and is, Christianity. Only the Christians spoke of the end of the world as a real event. They spoke of a Day of Judgment when God would return and defeat Satan (Set). It was the only major western religion to nod its head towards the divine feminine and give it a place on its altar of worship. It’s savior, Jesus Christ, died on a cross and then was buried in a tomb. In the darkness of this tomb, through a great alchemical transfiguration, he became a man of light, or a light body. From then on he was an immortal being freed from the pain and suffering of mortality.
Jesus told his followers that he was the ‘son of man’. What are we to make of this curious phrase? If the point of Jesus’ religion was to say that he was the ‘son of God’ then why does he choose to repeat this odd sentence? Jesus also tells us that he represents the humanity of the future. He tells his followers that they will one day be resurrected into a new world.
Perhaps when he tells us that he is the ‘son of man’ he is saying exactly what he means. Perhaps he is saying that he is the first of an emerging new species and that this new human is emerging out of man. To the people of his time his phrase would have meant something akin to this.
Perhaps as a species begins to go extinct it also starts searching for the reasons that caused its extinction. In this way, a coming catastrophe would act as an opening of consciousness in that species.
Take for example the long evolutionary history of the horse. When the short-legged horse of a million years ago began to face extinction from fast moving carnivores, it began to realize that it needed longer legs to survive. But how does a short-legged horse transform itself into a long-legged horse? Evolutionary biologists tell us that that through the process of ‘genetic mutation’ the horse develops the longer legs needed for its survival. According to this theory one day a horse, a mutation if you will, is born with longer legs. This ‘mutation’ would then be passed on to future horses. Eventually, if all went well, a horse with longer legs would develop. This would happen in parallel time as the short legged horses faced certain extinction.
Perhaps Jesus Christ was a horse with longer legs. Perhaps Jesus was a ‘mutation’ to use the gross scientific language for this mysterious process. But science is profane while alchemy is holy. To an alchemist Jesus Christ would not be a ‘mutation’ at all. To the alchemists he was the new emerging human. It is for this reason that the alchemists refer to Jesus as a ‘savior’ or a ‘messiah’, a ‘future man’. The alchemists have always known that he was a gift from the vertical dimensions.
Perhaps he was the first of a new species of man, born from man, indeed a ‘son of man’. This new species, according to this point of view, would have tremendous powers of healing, a high degree of love, compassion and forgiveness and would be able to transform his flesh into light. For these would be the necessary qualities to assist the evolutionary process and insure the species viability.
This new species, according to the Shamans of Peru is about to emerge out of man. In my recent film, Healing the Luminous Body with Dr. Alberto Villoldo, he tells of his many discussions with these Peruvian shamans. They say that the new species will be called ‘Homo Luminous’.
This then is the true meaning behind the guarding of bloodlines and the myths of the Holy Grail. The new species, or the genetic trait that would eventually emerge as a new species, had to be protected and guarded from the odious machinations of the Setians who fear this New Man and know that his emergence will be their end. The forces of darkness have been actively seeking out the ones with these particular genetic predilections and attempting to eliminate them as quickly as possible.
The Keepers of the Light had created a religion that could actually thwart the efforts of the Setians. And so that religion became the number one enemy of the Setian State of ancient Rome almost 2000 years ago. Three hundred years later when Constantine took over the reigns of the Holy Roman Church the real Christians knew what had happened. They knew that the Setian forces had taken over their end time religion. This group of original Christians, now called Gnostic Christians, moved underground. They still spoke of the ‘end times’ and Satan as the ruler of the world. This was eventually interpreted by the Roman Church to mean that the Church itself was the creation of the evil one.
And they were right.
So the Church began the first of it’s four great genocides. For 1000 years across Europe the Church murdered, destroyed and burned millions of these Gnostic Christians. They did everything they could to drive away the ones who believed that Satan had taken over their Holy Church. They also sought the heirs of the holders of the genetic bloodline of Jesus. The Church knew that Jesus’ wife Mary Magdalene had emigrated from Israel to the South of France. They knew that she was pregnant with Jesus’ child. Many times the Romans tried to destroy the genetic heirs of Jesus but they always failed. Twelve hundred years later Pope Innocent III took up the banner and began murdering thousands of Gnostic Christians in the south of France. It can be assumed that the heirs of Jesus were high on their list for elimination.
Eventually the Church’s stranglehold on Europe would lead to the great Protestant apostasy and the final destruction of the Church’s hegemony. But before that would happen the Church had much work still do to do. Never in history has their been such a bloodbath. The Church, and its henchmen, seemed intent on destroying every edifice, book or memory of all the cultures that had been saved, so long ago, by the Viracoca cult. The apocalyptic message of Christianity had been replaced now by a rote system of ritual and supplication towards Rome and the Holy Father. Occasionally a ‘Keeper of the Light’ sympathizer would work his way up the ladder of Roman Church (like Pope Sylvester II) but they were all found out and murdered by the Setians.
The Christians had a book in their New Testament that revealed all of the above and much more. This is of course the Book of Revelation by John. John not only names Rome as the home of the antichrist but also describes the final days in a blow-by-blow fashion. This book managed somehow to survive the rewriting of the New Testament, most likely through the power of its images and language. The Book of Revelation remains one of the most riveting of the writings from the Christian era. This book was written by the Keepers of Light to act as a warning to those in our age who will still listen.
The Cross at Hendaye is predicting that the end of the world began in 1992 and will end on the winter solstice 2012, a little over 20 years later. Whoever the unknown builder of this 300-year-old cross was – he was in possession, just like Fulcanelli says ‘ of profound knowledge of the universe’.
Christianity, alchemy, the Book of Revelation, the Cross-at Hendaye and even Fulcanelli himself are proof that there is a group, operating far in the background that has its hands firmly on the rudder of society. It also tells us that the fact that Set is allowed to go on with his nefarious games is somehow important to this final initiation that we are all about to experience.
