Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero
Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology.
Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world.
Absolute Key to Occult Science: The Tarot of the Bohemians; The Most Ancient Book in the World, for the Exclusive Use of Initiates
Gerard Anaclet Vincent Encausse (1865 – 1916), commonly known by his esoteric pseudonym Papus, was the French hypnotist, physician, and occultist famous for founding the modern Martinist Order. Papus’s “Tarot of the Bohemians” represents part of the main literature of 19th and early 20th century ‘Tarotism’. Within it, he maintains that the Tarot contains ancient knowledge from ancient Egypt, India and even Atlantis, while also giving basic instruction in cartomancy using the Tarot deck. This volume will furnish the reader with a deep grasp of the inner life of the Tarot deck and is highly recommended for those with an interest in Tarot and cartomancy.
Advanced Shamanism: The Practice of Conscious Transformation
A step-by-step guide to authentic advanced shamanic practices
• Offers hands-on instructions for more than 30 practices, including sacred Fire ceremonies, direct shamanic viewing, shamanic death and rebirth, working with healing stones, shamanic lucid dreaming, shamanic healing, and advanced methods for acquiring an animal spirit guide
• Allows solitary shamanic practitioners to advance their practice
• Examines the biological foundations of spiritual experience, the many ways that Psi phenomena and shamanism are linked, and their relationship to the scientific concept of quantum entanglement
In this step-by-step guide to more than three dozen advanced shamanic practices, James Endredy shares the wisdom and techniques he has learned through 30 years of working with shamanic teachers from all over the globe, including Huichol kawiteros, Tibetan lamas, Incan, Mayan, and Tukano shamans, Indian siddhas, the Kanaka Maoli of Hawai’i, and elders from many Native American tribes, such as the Seneca, Lenni Lenape, Arapaho, Sioux, Tuscarora, Yurok, Navajo, and Hopi.
Endredy offers hands-on instructions for sacred Fire ceremonies, direct shamanic viewing, experiencing shamanic death and rebirth, working with and acquiring healing stones, shamanic lucid dreaming, shamanic healing, and advanced methods for acquiring an animal spirit guide, including how to properly retain its spirit in a sacred bundle or altar and how to use its power responsibly for healing. He provides a meticulous step-by-step approach to working with the five points of attention, a Huichol teaching on sacred awareness and shamanic levels of attention. He also examines the many ways that Psi phenomena and shamanism are linked and their relationship to the scientific concept of quantum entanglement.
Showing how quantum physics is the scientific expression of shamanism, the author also explores the biological foundations of spiritual experiences, including the roles of serotonin, dopamine, and opioid transmitters, and the connections between altered consciousness and shamanic states. Integrating modern research with ancient knowledge to provide an enlightened view of shamanism that marries science and spirit, this guide offers authentic shamanic wisdom and techniques to help the solitary practitioner move forward on their shamanic path.
Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God
Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare, Dion Fortune and the German occultist Eugen Grosche were among the first Western adepts to teach the use of the psychosexual energies whose snake-like Ophidian Current permeates the most ancient secret knowledge of Africa and the Far East. This work presents an exhaustive analysis of Crowley's system of sexual magic and the strange rites which he practised and advocated for the purpose of promoting the Law of freedom with its formula of love under will.
Babylonian Magic and Sorcery
Being the Prayers of the Lifting of the Hand, the Cuneiform Texts of a Group of Babylonian and Assyrian Incantations and Magical Formulae Edited with Transliterations, Translations and Full Vocabulary from Tablets of the Kuyunjik Collections
Leonard W King
An encouraging symptom of the advance made in the method of Assyriological publications is to be found in the work done during the past two years by such men as Knudtzon, Tallqvist, King, and Zimmern in gathering together the cuneiform tablets belonging to a single series or class and in presenting the group in such a form as to enable scholars to undertake a systematic study of the remains of Babylonian literature. Now that Bezold's great catalogue of the Kuyunjik collection of the British Museum is complete, there is no longer any excuse for what might be termed "promiscuous" publications. Such publications are always of doubtful value and particularly so in the domain of Assyriology.
Mr. King's book is a model of what a systematic publication ought to be. He has chosen as the basis of his work a group of tablets well defined by the formula, "The Lifting up of the Hand," found in the colophon. To these he has added, as an appendix, a number of tablets that illustrate the group in question. He begins by an introduction in which he carefully and succinctly sets forth the character of the group, its distinguishing features, the divisions, the method of composition, the traces of editing that they show, and their contents. In five sections, the tablets of the group selected, are furnished to the reader in accurate transliterations and admirable translations, together with explanations and comments, elaborate where needed, brief where possible. The sixth section contains "Prayers against the evils attending an eclipse of the moon" published in the same complete fashion. A complete vocabulary is added and appendixes containing a list of proper names, a list of numerals, portions of words, and ideographs of uncertain readings. The first part of the whole work is brought to a close by several pages of additions and corrections and two indexes, one to tablets and duplicates and the other to the registration numbers of the tablets published. The second part of the work consists of copies of the cuneiform texts, beautifully transcribed. A glance at these copies is sulficient to inspire confidence, and much handling of the copies only increases and justifies this confidence. In respect to completeness, King's publication compares most favorably with Knudtzon's and Tallqvist's recent works, while it is superior, e. g., to Zimmern's "Surpu" Series, whose commentary is entirely too scanty, and whose book lacks an introduction in which the results of his study of the series published by him are summed up. Special importance is to be attached to this last feature. It is not too much to say that Knudtzon, Tallquist, and King have doubled the value of their monographs by the elaborate introductions which they have furnished.
It stands to reason that if a scholar devotes himself specially to some division of the great religious literature of the Babylonians and Assyrians, he is (or ought to be) in a better position than anyone else to understand the bearings, the import, and the character of the section that he has worked up.

Cosmic Trigger I: Final Secret of the Illuminati
Robert Anton Wilson
"Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change. This process is called "initiation" or "vision quest" in many traditional societies and can loosely be considered some dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody . . . briefly, the main thing I learned in my experiments is that "reality" is always plural and mutable." - Robert Anton Wilson from the Preface
Freemasonry and Judaism
Vicomte Leon De Poncins
If we are to believe the contradictory versions which masons give of their origins they are both vague and manifold. It seems that the association dates from very ancient times. In England it comes from the guilds of mason builders of the middle ages. Historically it may be stated that Freemasonry has existed in its present form since 1717. At that time several English lodges met in London and founded the Grand Lodges of England. The first in date of all the grand lodges of the world. Jon Anderson was entrusted with the task of bringing together, correcting and editing in a definite form the masonic constitutions. His work appeared in 1723 and served as a basis for all present day masonic constitutions.
