The Revelation of Saint John the Divine

The Doom of Babylon


   And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

   And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

   And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning.

   Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city; for in one hour is thy judgment come.

   And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more. -- Revelation 18: 1-11

   "Reason is the product of selfishness. it is generated by the mind given by the Powers of Darkness (The Lords of the Mind), in a brain built by selfishly keeping half the sex force, and prompted by the selfish Lucifers, hence it is the seed of the serpent, and although transmuted to wisdom through pain and sorrow, it must give way to something higher: intuition, which means teaching from within. That is a spiritual faculty, equally present in all spirits, whether functioning for the time being as man or woman, but it expresses itself most prominently in those incarnated in a female organism, for there the counter-part of the Life Spirit -- the vital body -- is male, positive, and intuition, the faeulty of the Life Spirit, may therefore properly be called the woman's seed whence all altruistic tendencies spring, and whereby all nations are being slowly but surely drawn together in a Universal Brotherhood of Love, regardless of race, sex, or color.

   "This brain of course is not a homogeneous whole. It is divided into two halves, and it is a fact well known to physiologists that we use principally but one of these cerebral hemispheres -- the left. The right half of our brain is only partially active. The heart also is on the left side of our body, but is be. ginning to move toward 'the right' place. The 'right' brain, which is ruled by Mercury, will also become more and more active, and in consequence of these two physiological changes man's whole character will appear different. The left side is under the sway of the Lucifers and is given over to selfishness, but the Ego will gain more and more control as the right side of the brain is invested with power to act upon the body as right judgment.

   "That there is a change going on in the heart which makes it an anomaly, a puzzle, is not news to physiologists. We have two sets of muscles, one set is under the control of the will, as, for instance, the muscles of the arm and hand. They are striped both lengthwise and crosswise. The involuntary muscles which cannot be moved by desire are striped lengthwise only. The heart is the only exception. It is under the control of desire, and yet it is beginning to show cross-stripes like a voluntary muscle.

   "In time those cross-stripes will develop fully and the heart will be under our control. When that time comes we will be able to direct the blood where we will to send it. Then we, may refuse to send it to the left brain, and Babylon, the city of Lucifer, will fall."
