Speculative historians, conspiracy theorists, and alternative thinkers have long been aware that history has at the very least, coincidental overtones of occultism behind major events. Adolf Hitler was a member of the Thule Society and adopted the ancient symbol of the swastika, which he reversed for the Nazi emblem, in the same way that some Satanic cults inverted the pentagram. The Pentagram is variously cited as the symbol of man or the planet/goddess Venus, the origin of Rosicruciansim (the pentagram as compared to the petals and pistula of the rose), or a geometric representation of the cycle of earth on the galactic plain (as in Mayan 2012 “End Time” theories, for example). The murder of the Romanov Family after the Bolshevik Revolution also had definite occultic implications. Above the freshly slaughtered corpses of Nicolas II and his family, his Bolshevik murderers wrote in blood the letter “L” three times in three different languages—Lamed (Hebrew), Lamed (Samaritan script), Lamda (Greek)—a Qabalistic symbol of bloody sacrifice and the “killing of the king.” (1) The Tarot, wrote famous magician Eliphas Levi “…The ancient book wherein, under different images, is consecrated all the ancient practice of magical science.”
Some modern observers with an eye for occultic symbolism have also noticed occultic symbolism in the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. It is not the purpose of the article to speculate on the perpetrators of the 9-11 attack, whether they were Islamic occultists or Western occultists, but merely to provide some perspective of the occultic symbolism that may have been present in the terror attacks. The date 9-11 itself rouses suspicion, because George Bush’s father, namesake, and ex-President of the United States chose that date for his famous “more than one small country, it’s a big idea, a New World Order,” speech following the 1990-91 Gulf War. Ten years later to the day, the terror attacks on the World Trade Center took place.
Aleister Crowley, the brilliant yet sexually deviant and drug addicted occultist who formed the Ordo Templi Oreintis (OTO) and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (which still exist with worldwide membership today), wrote some very important works on numerology, the Tarot, the Qabala, and tables of correspondence between the allegories of Christianity, Judaism, (Minoan) Gnosticism, etc. Within the texts of Gematria, 777, Magic In Theory and Practice, and Sepher Sephiroth, Crowley offers some perspective on key elements of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, should the occultic point of view be of relevance to the historical record.
The number “9” is described in various sections of Gematria as:
· The Innead. “Stability in Change.”
· The Son degraded to mere animal life.
· Most evil, because of its stability… Witchcraft, the false moon of the sorceress.
The number “11” is described as:
· The Henecad, the accursed shells, that only exist without the divine Tree. 1+1=2, in its evil sense of not being 1.
· The great magical number, as uniting the antithesis of 5 and 6 itself… The magic force itself.
In the book 777, Crowley also describes “11” as, “The general number of magic, or energy tending toward change.” The unification of the “5 and 6 itself,” Crowley refers to as the unification of the pentagram and the hexagram (also used as the Star of David and symbol on the Israeli flag), the coming together of the “microcosm and the macrocosm.” In his Magic In Theory and Practice, Crowley described The Tower Tarot card as the “slaughter of the innocents.”
So from an occultic perspective, the date of 9-11 is significant because it is first the number nine for September, “most evil,” “the son degraded to animal life,” a “false moon,” and “change.” Second, the number eleven is “the great magical number” and “energy toward change.” The Qabalistic element is emphasized by the occultic meaning of eleven as the synthesis of the pentagram (man, Venus, inverted for Satanism or negativity) and the hexagram (the Tree of Life, microcosm and macrocosm, magic, change).
