  • The Helios Biblios Hour (book of the sun) :HEKA ACTIVATING THE KA

    in Current Events

    H. P. Lovecraft: Well. If I just stated that the “Necronomicon” is the physical body, then the Mad Arab who wrote the Necronomicon is the jinn which possesses the human body. This is why I wrote in code that the actual title of the Necronomicon is Al-Azif. In one of your writings Warlock, you showed that the term Mad Arab means “your god that daughter of light” in Enochian, mad meaning your god, ar meaning that, and ab meaning daughter of light. Therefore, the Mad Arab was the Jinn that possesses the physical body. Is it not written in the Chaldean Oracles, “Because she is the Operatrix, because she is the Dispensatrix of Life-giving fire. Because also it fills the Life producing bosome of Hecate. As far as Abdul Al-Hazred, it is a code to the secret text. Hazard was my Earthly mother’s maiden name. The name Hazard derives from the Middle English hazard, which denotes a game of chance, or luck, all of which imply a Jinn influence. In older occult works the soul was regarded as female. In my “fictional” stories, I mention that the Necronomicon was completed in the year 730 A.D. This is approximately 98 years after the Qu’ran was completed and the establishment of the Islamic religion in 632 A.D. From 1914 to 2012, is also 98 years. Maybe the Mad Arab class, which is a collective living on Earth, will rise at that time. I really don’t know. I write fiction so that those who don’t need to know don’t know what the truth really is. Draw your own conclusion! Heka (/'h?k?/; Egyptian: ?k?; also spelled Hike) was the deification of magic in ancient Egypt, his name being the Egyptian word for "magic". According to Egyptian writing (Coffin text, spell 261), Heka existed "before duality had yet come into being." The term "Heka" was also used to refer to the practice of magical rituals. The Coptic word "hik" is derived from Ancient Egyptian.

    the Greek neoplatonisT philosopher Proclus (410 - 485 A.D.). Proclus was completely at home in astronomy, mathematics, philosophy, and metaphysics, but was sufficiently well-versed in the magical techniques oftheurgyto evokeHekateto visible appearance. Proclus was also an initiate of Egyptian and Chaldean mystery religions. It is no accident thatAlhazredwas intimatelyfamilarwith the works of Proclus.No Arabic manuscript is known to exist. The authorIdriesShah carried out a search in the libraries ofDeobundin India, Al-Azharin Egypt, and the Library of the Holy City of Mecca, without success. A Latin translation was made in 1487 (not in the 17th. century as Lovecraft maintains) by a Dominican priestOlausWormius.Wormius, a German by birth, was a secretary to the first Grand Inquisitor of the Spanish Inquisition, Tomas de Torquemada, and it is likely that the manuscript of theNecronomicon came into his possession during the persecution of Spanish Moors ("Moriscos") who had been converted to Catholicism under duress and did not exhibit the necessary level of enthusiasm for the doctrines of the Church.the Old Ones were beings from "beyond the spheres", presumably the spheres of the planets, and in the cosmography of that period this would imply the region of the fixed stars or beyond. They were superhuman and extrahuman."the Fallen Ones" and is derived from the Hebrew verb rootnaphal, to fall. The story inGenesisis only a fragment of a larger tradition, another piece of which can be found in the apocryphalBook of Enoch. According to this source, a group of angels sent to watch over the Earth saw the daughters of men and lusted after them.Arab traditions hold that the Jinnor Djinn were a race of superhuman beings which existed before the creation of humankind. The Djinn were created from fire.
