An apparent wanna-be bikini model mom had allegedly killed her demon hunter husband and then threw his body away like trash along a roadside in New South Wales, Australia.
The accused murderer, Raquel Hutchinson said that she “killed her husband to save children because he was a demonologist, exorcist and ghost hunter.” Her accomplices were an ex-lover and another man.
The Crown prosecutor, Margaret Cunneen said in court that a nine-year-old boy had witnessed Hutchison push her husband Bret down the stairs and spray his face with mold stain remover “Exit Mould.”
Yeah, you read that right – fricken mold killer!!
The boy later saw the man lying down in the bush bleeding before the victim’s body with his wife crouched near him screaming: “Confess or I’ll kill you.”
Text messages between the killers were presented as evidence showing a discussion between Hutchison and Wilkinson asking is the mold killer would act like mace.
And one of them texted: “S*** c***s always win except when someone stops them.”
The next day of Bret’s murder, Hutchison texted he ex-lover Wilkinson: “Game on, we man up”.
The Crown Prosecutor told the court that after the alleged killing, Ms. Hutchinson told a friend: “I’m fucked. I need help. We bashed him and we tied him up.”
Attorneys for Hutchison’s claimed that she was trying to save the children and that she was “mentally deficient” and suffered from a borderline personality order, post-traumatic stress disorder from her childhood and depression.
After the alleged murder, she told a psychiatrist: “He wasn’t supposed to die. I wanted him to go to jail.”
I think we need to ask ourselves who was protecting who from who here? Meaning, her husband was a demonologist and ghost hunter and she ended up committing what some may consider one of the most demonic or monstrous acts any person can commit which is cold-blooded murder ie: the killing of an innocent human.
Perhaps, Ms. Huchinson’s husband’s knowledge of demons threatened the evil demon or maybe it was just the Ego inhabiting her body. A jealous and murderous creature who eventually showed its vile nature when her husband got too close to the truth.
During the modern plague, we will see more and more of this crazy demonic behavior.
“However, they also may be transmitting diseases from one side of the globe to the other. The researchers found E. coli in their samples (which they think hurricanes lifted from cities), and they plan to investigate whether plagues are raining down on us.”
As part of my ongoing research on spirits, demons, and parasitic fungi/molds, I would like to present to you more current scientific articles and stories that correlate with some of my ancient research. (more…)
In a recent Science Daily article, Gut microbes may talk to the brain through cortisol, researchers from the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences explain how recent studies show that human gut microbes can influence human health, behavior, and certain neurological disorders, such as autism.
The authors of the study say that results from a new study suggest a pathway of communication between certain gut bacteria and brain metabolites, by way of a compound in the blood known as cortisol. And unexpectedly, the finding provides a potential mechanism to explain the characteristics of autism.” (more…)
A house desecrated by mildew, mold, or fungus would be a defiled place to live in, so drastic measures had to be taken. – Leviticus 14:45
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mildew in a house in that land, the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, ‘I have seen something that looks like mildew in my house.’ The priest is to order the house to be emptied before he goes in to examine the mildew, so that nothing in the house will be pronounced unclean.

Our DNA is akin to a computer program. Like computers, human viruses can infect our biological programs causing chaos in our operating systems.
The results for the unlucky human can lead to illness, madness, disease, and even death.
Humans have developed strategies to fight back against these parasites using our immune system but these little creatures have found ways to hide from our immune defenders to avoid proper recognition and thus interfering with the host protective mechanisms. The entry of the pathogen into the host cell is initiated by viral adherence to the cell surface in which it parasites nutrients and minerals from the host further weakening its immune system.
In February, an international research team led by Prof. Oliver Werz of Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, released research showing how the mold/fungus Apergillus fumigatus tricks the immune system allowing the parasite to develop into a potentially deadly infection.
Aspergillus uses a lethal mycotoxin called gliotoxin, which is responsible for the pathogenicity of the mold’s immunosuppressive effect. Werz said,”This interrupts communication between the immune cells and destroys the defense mechanism. As a result, it is easy for spores – in this case the fungus – that enter the organism to infiltrate tissues or organs.” (1)
One of the ways that these parasites defend themselves from the human immune system is with “biofilms”. These biofilms are three-dimensional structures formed by microbes encapsulated in a matrix of self-produced extracellular polymeric molecules that could adhere to biotic or abiotic surfaces. Mature biofilms have been shown to be resistant to the attack of the immune systems’ neutrophils, representing an important innate immune evasion. (2)
Researchers from Stanford University in California are finding that a bacterium responsible for approximately 10% of U.S. hospital-acquired infections uses a virus to trick a person’s immune system into ignoring it.
The virus, known as a phage, infects the Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium, fools our immune system into going after it instead of its microbe host and frequently resists antibiotic treatment. (3)
The image above shows the components of the cell wall that help fungi to evade the immune system. The outer layer of mannans of many fungal cells shields the highly immunogenic β-1,3-glucan from Dectin-1 receptor, precluding the activation of effector mechanisms in immune cells. In the case of Histoplasma cells, endo- β-1,3-glucanase is released to trim β-1,3-glucans from the cell and prevents its recognition via Dectin-1 receptor.
Melanin is distributed into the cell wall of some fungal pathogens and contributes to resistance to phagocytosis and enzymatic degradation by macrophages. Finally, the reversible, dimorphic switch between yeast and hyphae confers special traits to each form that helps the pathogen to disseminate and invade the host. (2)
Scientists are proving that communities of bacteria that live in most mammals’ guts are mostly passed down from mothers and also ancestors going 10 generations back, according to a new study in mice. Meaning, the same things that were in their stomachs, you may have the very same microbes, AKA microorganisms such as fungi/molds and bacteria which causes disease or fermentation.
This research is part of my ongoing studies into what I’ve coined as “DNA Gnosis,” and the demonic spirits of the air AKA Molds/Fungi. DNA Gnosis is the simple Gnostic science that proves we inherit talents, knowledge, physical traits and behaviors from our genes in which every ancestor who has gone before us plays a part in making our DNA. My belief is that these genes can both affect us positively and or negatively depending on how we decide to live our lives and now we are finding out that what we breathe and eat also plays a huge role in DNA Gnosis.
We can now say that we are or become what we eat and what our ancestors have eaten and that what we breathe and eat today is being transferred through the air and grafted in our guts. Meaning you can also breathe and eat these tiny organisms that surround us, which many are pathogens that have the ability to become part of you.
The big question and I think I know the scary answer is, “If they can graft onto our DNA, can they take us over as in possession of our genes – AKA bodies and brains?” Look around, I see and hear a lot of people who I suspect are weaponized pathogens disguised as humans.
Since I have been researching serial evil killers, Satanism, and people who like to sacrifice people and eat their flesh, it made me immediately wonder, “What if that ancestor ate humans?” Just imagine the implications and DNA damage it may cause somewhere down the line in that person’s descendants?
And guess what I’m discovering? I have found that some modern-day serial killers actually have ancestors who were serial killers and mass murderers unbeknownst to them and law enforcement investigators.
More on that murderous DNA research later. For now, here is the science on how we can inherit the gut microbes of a tenth generation ancestor.
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) or lateral gene transfer (LGT) is the movement of genetic material between unicellular and/or multicellular organisms other than by the (“vertical”) transmission of DNA from parent to offspring (reproduction).
These teachings in which I add modern science further develop what the ancient Gnostics who had called them the lords of darkness and the mischievousness of spirits of the air and the Gnostic Christians ie: Catholics who had considered them to be wicked spirits on high whose habitation was mainly the air which was said to be the mansion of evil spirits, of whom Satan (Great Dragon) is the chief.
The reason I add this history is that this is how they had talked back then and if they lived today, they would be incorporating this science into the outdated teachings. That is what real Gnostics do by the way…
The researchers (Moeller et al.) derived inbred mouse lines from two wild populations of mice with distinct microbiota and monitored the populations’ microbiomes for 3 years while they were kept in the same animal facility. The microbiota of the two mouse lineages remained distinct even after 10 generations.
Most microbiota genera transmitted vertically. Those taxa that transmitted horizontally through the shared environment of the animal facility tended to be those that include pathogens.
GUT MICROBE SPIRITS OF THE AIR
What really caught my eye in this research is that they found that oxygen plays a key role in assisting the bacteria to spread horizontally between mice and this bacteria tends to be related to species that cause sickness in humans.
You know, like molds/fungi or what some of our ancestors had called wicked spirits on high and Lords of Darkness?
Again, this is more science which validates my work
“Lateral Gene Transfer is not limited to bacteria. Scientists now recognize that microbes transfer DNA to the plants, fungi, and animals they infect or reside in, and conversely, human long interspersed elements (LINEs) have been found in bacterial genomes. Moreover, researchers have documented LGT from fungi to insects and from algae to sea slugs. There is a reason to believe that any two major groups of organisms—including humans—can share their genetic codes.”
“A new analysis published last year by Alastair Crisp of the University of Cambridge and colleagues found more than 130 traces of possible LGT events in the human genome—including the presence of fungal hyaluronan synthases, a fat mass and obesity associated gene (FTO), and the gene responsible for blood types (ABO).”
“They control everything here including the sun, that’s why it’s always dark. They can’t stand the light.” – Dr. Schreber
In the 1998 film, Dark City (IE: Dark Mind, Reptilian Brain = Parasite Left Brain), is about a group known as the “Strangers” (Archons, Fallen Angels) who live in the underworld (hell, unconscious mind) and are able to keep their parasitic grip on its human hosts above ground through a giant head (Satan, Devil, Great Serpent).
They are said to be an ancient parasitic alien race that is on the verge of extinction who seem to have unfathomable mental powers.
The main character, John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens in a hotel bathtub, suffering from amnesia (iGnosis/ignorance) and discovers the bloody horror scene of a corpse of what can be called a Satanically murdered (sacrificed to the demonic fungi) woman along with a bloody knife. He flees just as the Strangers show up to investigate the room.
The Strangers pursue Murdoch who eventually discovers that he has the Gnostic mind powers—which the Strangers also possess, and refer to as “tuning”—and he manages to use these powers to escape from them.
Murdoch meets Dr. Daniel Schreber (Kiefer Sutherland), who has the special Gnosis (knowledge) about the Strangers and he is also a bit crazy (schizophrenic). The mental capacity of Dr. Schreber gives him the inherent ability to see into their world. He explains to Murdoch that the Strangers are endangered extraterrestrial parasites who use humans as their hosts.
Dr. Schreber describes their abilities to alter physical reality like that of parasitic fungi/molds. The Doctors says in the film;
“They had mastered the ultimate technology – the ability to alter physical reality by will alone”.
They are telepathically connected to each other as “they share one group mind”.
They are most active at night, where the Strangers stop time and physically rearrange the city as well as changing people’s identities and memories. Having a hive mind, the Strangers have been experimenting with humans to analyze their individuality in the hopes that some insight might be revealed that would help their race survive.
It is interesting to note that the Strangers are most active when the people of the city are asleep or unconsciousness. The same thing can be said about parasitic organisms that reside in the human body who are most active at night to a global population is almost totally unaware of these interdimensional parasites that reside in their own bodies.
The crazy doctor writes about what he calls little men who are a few millimeters in height and are “invading his body because of his power.”
Schreber then says, “On some nights the souls finally dripped down onto my head, in a manner of speaking, in their hundreds if not thousands, as “little men”. I always warned them against approaching me, since I had become aware of the immensely increased power of attraction of my nerves.”
Another parasitic fungi/molds parallel is how the Strangers are able to manipulate the people of “Dark City” through this hive mind by working in unison to control the unconscious projections of its inhabitants. The Strangers have the ability to manipulate the unconscious humans and Dark City through a type of hive mind or collective conscious apparatus that is symbolized with a gigantic head with a clock inside.
This massive head is employed at night by the parasitic demons when the people of Dark City are sleeping AKA unconscious. This parasitic ability is observed during one scene when the Strangers conduct a tuning experiment with their collective will-power through the massive head, which opens to a clock at 9 p.m., which eventually turns to midnight.
Through this massive head, the Strangers create false memories (maya) for its unconscious slaves who are now controlled by the Strangers.
The main character, Murdoch’s task is to reawaken to who he truly is and activate his Gnostic abilities in order to escape the mind control grip of the Strangers (Archons) by exiting Dark City (Labirynth/Matrix) and defeating their leader AKA the Minotaur (Satan, Devil – AKA The Gigantic Head of the Fungi).
Apparently, Murdoch is some type of Gnostic Warrior who is able to Gno (know) the Strangers (Archons) and discover the Revelations that the city as an enormous space habitat (Fungi/Dark Matter) surrounded by a force field.
The Strangers bring the Gnostic Warrior, Murdoch to their home (fungal colony) beneath the city and force Dr. Schreber to imprint Murdoch with their collective memory (Fungi Gnosis), believing Murdoch to be the final result of their experiments. Schreber instead injects Murdoch with the memories (Gnosis) of his childhood where he learned who these Strangers were and how to defeat them using his genetic Gnostic abilities.
The Strangers use the bodies of dead people as vessels to move around. You can recognize them by their pale skin, and big bald heads. Their choice of clothing generally consists of a long black trench coat, black fedora, gloves, and boots, which give them a menacing appearance. Beneath their coats, they wear black leather suits of unique design made of different black leather pieces held together with a number of intricate straps, belts, and laces.
In the original form, they are bluish gelatinous tadpole-like creatures. Across the body section, they have a rounded mouth with lots of teeth and lots of tentacles.
They usually don’t use weapons, they can easily lift and throw a person several meters away with their telekinetic powers or make people sleep with telepathic ones. Their powers seldom fail them but if they do – for example, if for some inexplicable reason their opponent happens to be immune to them – they resort to somewhat cruder weapons, such as knives.
Even when inhabiting the human host, The Strangers have an aversion to water and light. When sprayed with water they burn and turn to dust, so if you mix these ingredients the nightmare starts to fade away.
Now that Murdoch has fully awakened to his illuminating Gnosis, he frees himself and goes to war with the Strangers, defeating their leader Mr. Book (Ian Richardson) in what can be described as a spiritual battle high above the city.
Murdoch defeats their leader Mr. Hand and informs him that the Strangers have been searching in the wrong place—the mind—to understand humanity. Murdoch turns the habitat toward the star (Jupiter) it had been turned away from, and the city experiences sunlight (illuminating phosphorus) for the first time.
The spiritual man has become the Messiah using the self-illuminating (alkalizing) power of the light (phosphorus) to kill off the remaining Strangers (fungi) and is liberated from Dark City.
Food for the Moon was first introduced into Western Culture by the Russian mystic of Greek descent, George Gurdjieff (1872-1949). The infamous concept was an integral aspect of the “Fourth Way,” which were Gurdjieff’s esoteric teachings on the spiritual development of man.
The idea of Food for the Moon deals with the paranormal aspect of the slavery of Humanity in which its organic energy serves as “food” for some the cosmic entity we know as the Moon and its parasites that we can not see at another level of existence ie: the paranormal/fourth dimension.
Gurdjieff said, “The Moon is actually a fragment of this Earth, which must now constantly maintain the Moon’s existence. Everything living on the Earth, people, animals, plants, is food for the Moon. The Moon is a huge living being feeding upon all that lives and grows on the Earth.”
In other words, I would simply say that earth and all its organisms’ energies are slaves to a super parasitical mind in the night sky – the Moon. A massive predator in the heavens sending armies of parasites in a chain descending down through the biosphere to Mother Earth in order prey on its host population – US.
Gurdjieff had stated that it was only through “self-remembering” that it was possible for an individual to escape being eaten by the Moon.
A form of Gnosis from the ancient book of Plato who had said all learning is remembering. Its as if these great teachers are telling us we all have the keys ie: knowledge/Gnosis within to free ourselves from the parasitical grips of the effects of the moon.
Gurdjieff’s’ Food derived from humans is said to by vibrations generated by intense human experiences such as fear and hate which formulate unique energies on the collective level which create war and other human tragedies. We could compare this to mass hypnosis of humankind on earth so we perform a Jim Jones type mass ritual self-suicide in order to feed the parasites who in turn feed the moon.
With man being less and less conscious of the spiritual realm ie: non-material, these energies that he does not understand and no longer consciously controls can easily be harvested by parasitical organisms. When I look to medieval art by the alchemists and Christian Mystics of yesteryear, I see these teachings clearly spelled out in the battle against the serpent and who Christians call the Great Dragon – Satan – defacto ruler of earth ie: material realm and flesh.
Failing to battle the influences of the moon and its soul-sucking parasites then leads to a type of super slave which causes mankind to act as a drone/zombie who can then perform meaningless work, fight wars and endure cataclysms in which a certain quota of energy vibration can be released into the air to be “Moon fed”.
Quite possibly or should I say prophetically, today we can measure how we are feeding the parasites/fungi and moon at a rapid pace thus increasing war and mayhem.
For example, in all the wars of the 20th Century, there have been estimated a total of approximately 123 million people who died of which, 37 million were military deaths, 27 million collateral civilian deaths, 41 million victims of “democide” (genocide and other mass murder) and 18 million victims of non-democidal famine. (Matthew White: Worldwide Statistics of Casualties, Massacres, Disasters and Atrocities)
Can we now say that we have succeeded in feeding the Moon?
THE MOONS PARASITICAL AND ANIMAL LIKE INFLUENCE ON HUMANS
The Latin word for the moon is Luna and this is where we get the word for irrational behavior and madness during certain phases of the Moon which we call “lunacy and lunatic.” This belief was so widespread that in the 1800’s England made the law titled the “Lunacy Act of 1842” which gave allowances for certain crimes committed during the full and new Moon.
This law was the first of its kind to distinguish a criminal from either being chronically insane as a result of genetics and culture or a lunatic whose crimes were the result of paranormal influences. This is officially when in the West, a person’s lunacy had resulted in a deranged criminal act because of the Moon’s power and thus could not be held accountable for his or her actions.
This gave rise to the myths of barking animal men we call “werewolves” Thousands of years before Gurdjieff had written about Food for the Moon and Ozzy barked at the Moon, Pythagoras had stated that “The whole air is full of souls which are called genii or heroes,” which he also believed that these souls in the air affected our thoughts, dreams and sent omens of health, sickness and disease.
These teachings later became known as “The Doctrine of the Transmigration of Souls or Doctrine of Disembodied Spirit” later became part of the mythical teachings of Gnosticism as the “counterfeit spirit or counterfeit daemon,” which we find in the Christian Scripture when Saint Paul refers to them as wicked spirits of the air in high places in Ephesians 6:11-13.
The Gnostic version is described in the Pistis Sophia (ie: Faith Wisdom) as a small power and soul which has power over our flesh and gains power by the sins and evil we commit. It gathers itself out of the portion of evil (ie: sins/lusts/passions) that resideth in the body.
This sin and evil we vibrate from our beings would then create dark energy vibrations for the spirits of the air in high placed which would correspond exactly with Gurdjieff’s teachings on Food for the Moon.
While looking into the science of Food for the Moon, one of Gurdjieff’s disciples, Pyotr Demianovich Ouspenskii, had once written, “Everything that dies, from bacteria to man, then divides in two. One part of its organism remains on earth and enters in earth and produces many different effects on the surface of earth, and the other part is attracted by the moon and feeds moon. So part of us, when we die, feeds moon—but not only man—all organic life also.”
I have written and talked extensively about the science and effects of parasitical fungi/molds and also how they can be found in space both here on the Gnostic Warrior and for my business Mold Safe Solutions. For example, I had written previously about how a team of scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered billions of tiny organisms such as bacteria and fungi 33,000 feet in the air after they flew six miles above Earth’s surface in a NASA jet plane and pumped outside air through a filter to collect particles.
This may be the very reason why NASA announced in July 2017 that it is preparing to fight fungus (mold) in space and on other planets. An article from CNET states that NASA is investigating fungi in space as an enemy of astronaut health.
The author cites a study published Monday in the journal Microbiome shows that when you add humans to the type of enclosed habitats that could one day be used on the moon or other planets like Mars, it can give a boost to the community of fungal stowaways known as the mycobiome.
The researchers claimed that certain fungi seemed to thrive once humans were added to the ILMAH, including some that can colonize the body and cause allergies, asthma or infections, particularly in people with decreased immune systems like astronauts.
More recently in March 2018, NASA said its search for alien life may have a fungus problem due to extraterrestrial sample yielding a particularly large number of fungi, of the same general group of species as the mold that inspired the drug penicillin. In certain conditions, these fungi can produce a few flavors of amino acids—the building blocks of proteins—that are quite rare on Earth and are therefore often assumedto be extraterrestrial.
Looking back at these teachings, I believe that we can now say that science is verifying what Gurdjieff called Food for the Moon, Pythagoras had said 2500 years earlier that the whole air is full of souls, the Gnostics called counterfeit spirits, and Saint Paul called the spirits of the air in high places.
In May 2016, approximately 80 school students from a small village in northern Peru mysteriously started convulsing, screaming and many described visions of a man in black trying to kill them. Local villagers are claiming it was a case of ‘demonic possession’,
It’s no wonder, turns out the Elsa Perea Flores School in Tarapoto was said to be built on a Mafia graveyard.
Disturbing video footage shows students aged 11-14 years-old fainting, screaming and spitting froth from their mouths. One pupil told the media, “It’s disturbing for me to think about it. It’s as if someone kept on chasing me from behind.
‘It was a tall man all dressed in black and with a big beard and it felt like he was trying to strangle me.
‘My friends say I was screaming desperately, but I don’t remember much.’
Other schoolgirls also complained of similar experiences.
Another anonymous girl said, “Several children from different classrooms fainted at the same time. I got nauseous and started vomiting. I heard voices. A man in black chased me and wanted to touch me.”
Paranormal investigator, Franklin Steiner said, “It is known that years ago there were many victims of terrorism here. When this school was built, some say bones and dead bodies were found.”
A local media channel, The Mirror said that the students had been suffering from a “contagious condition” and even talk about breathing in vapors since last month.
Doctor Antony Choy stated that his team could not find a scientific reason behind the students’ unusual behavior.
“We don’t understand how this has kept on going on. We know it started on 29th April and now it is still happening. Now there are almost 80 pupils [still affected].”
Outside their Temple carved in stone were the ancient Gnostic maxims, “Know Thyself” and “Nothing in Excess”. For more than 1,100 years, they were some of the most powerful people to have ever rule the globe from what was once known as the center, naval, and soul of the world on the Holy Island of Crete.
It was here where the High Priestess of Pythia would speak mysterious prophecies as she sat atop the tripod with her legs spread and no undergarments as the vapors creeped into her mouth, nostrils, and vagina from the pit below. The name Pythia is derived from Pytho, which is derived from púthein – meaning “to rot”, and is said refers to the sickly smell of the decomposition of the body of the monstrous Python after she was slain by Apollo.
Upon the altar in the Temple burned sweet incense to hide the pungent smell of the misty smoke and the walls and roof were covered all over with laurel garlands. Intoxicating fumes would rise from deep within a small cavern in the ground at the center of the temple where there stood a high tripod, on which the High Priestess – Pythia, took her seat whenever the oracle was to be consulted.
The tripod was perforated with holes that allowed the vapors to completely envelop the Pythia. As she straddled herself over the tripod with her legs spread wide allowing the spirits of the vapors to enter into her bodily orifices, which caused her body to enlarge, her hair stand on end, her complexion changed, her heart panted, her bosom swelled and her voice became seemingly more than human.
These mysterious vapors would completely change the Priestess into another being that they believed could prophesy and tell the future. This smoke rising from the pit affected her body and brain in such a manner that she fell into a state of what can possibly be described today as “religious ecstasy” or “speaking in tongues.”
Here is an ancient depiction from a scene of the Delphic Oracle which shows the Pythia Priestess enveloped in serpents alongside Athena and Pylades and Erinyes (330 BCE). In Greek mythology, the Erinyes, also known as Furies, were female deities of vengeance who were sometimes referred to as “infernal goddesses.”
These were the first prophets (prophētai,προφῆται”, singular prophētēs) – meaning “one who speaks on behalf of another person” and I believe from these virgin women, the Lord and his Apostles were born.
Speaking of the rotting carcass of Pytho, Pausanias relates a text where she is called “the great and terrible monster, the nurse of Typhon, who devastated the land”, which I speculate could have been in reference to the previous religion and or cult of the Cretans being centered upon the Great Mother and nature who represented the earth but after her death, she represented death and war, for now, the vapors from her rotting carcass of a religion encompass the whole earth in a dark mist.
Pausanias writes in the first person how Apollo slew Pytho;
“Here,” says Apollo, “ will I build a splendid temple to be an oracle for men ; they shall bring hecatombs from the Peloponnesus, from Europe, and from the isles, and I will make revelations unto mortals in my sanctu~ my.” Having thus spoken, Phoebus Apollo laid the foundations, and upon them Tropho~ nice and Agamedes, sons of Erginus, placed the stone threshold, aided by countless tribes of men, and raised the temple with polished blocks of stone.
And hard by there was a spring of pure water, guarded by a she-dragon, a great and terrible monster, the nurse of Typhon, who devastated the land ; and the Lord Apollo slew her with his sharp arrows, and, having slain her, he mocked her and said: “ There lie and rot upon the ground.
No longer shalt thou be a scourge to my worshippers. Neither Typhoeus nor the dread Chimaera shall save thee from death, but here shall the black earth and the sun god Hyperion cause thee to rot.” So he spake exalting, and darkness covered her eyes, and the sun caused her body to rot, whence the place is now called Pytho, and the Lord Apollo the Pythian.
In The Travels of Lycurgus, it speaks of his arrival at Delphos to consult the oracle of Apollo, who he states is worshipped there under the name of Pythian, from the serpent Python, which he killed. It is written;
“Over the vent of the cavity a tripod is placed, which the Pythia, or priestess, mounts, when consulted, and from which she gives the oracle. The priestess was a long time preparing by sacrifices and purifications a fast of three days and other ceremonies before she ascended the tripod. I presented my offering: the Pythia mounted the sacred tripod, and the god denoted his approach by the agitation of a laurel that stands before the gate of the temple, which shook to its very foundations.
No sooner had the divine vapour, like a penetrating fire, diffused itself through the veins of the priestess, than her hair stood erect, and her looks grew wild and furious; she foamed at the mouth; a sudden and violent tremor convulsed her whole frame, and all the symptoms of distraction and frenzy were marked upon her countenance. She eyed me with fixed attention, and exclaimed:
“A friend of the gods, and rather a god than a man!” Here she ceased: her lips trembled, and she appeared agonized with the divine spirit that inflamed her soul. At length she again burst out into this exclamation:
“O Spartan! O favored of the gods! thy country shall flourish as long as the laws, which thou art about to establish, shall flourish: it shall become the most glorious and potent”
He concludes, “The words here died upon her lips; she gasped for breath and was led, pale and trembling, to her cell. I departed, satisfied with the answer that I had received.”
In my opinion, these mysterious vapors that were said to be from the rotting body of the serpent relate to fungi/molds that resided in these pits of which, “I will say no more.”
The 1st century BC Cretan historian, Diodorus Siculus tells of the mythology of the Oracle of Delphi that it was founded by a goat herder named Coretas who fed his flocks on Mount Parnassus. As the animals wandered here and there in pursuit of food, they “happened to approach a deep and long chasm in the rock.
From this chasm, a vapor issued, and the goats had no sooner inhaled a portion of the vapor than they began to play and frisk about with singular agility. The goatherder observing this, and curious to discover the cause, held his head over the chasm and in a short time the fumes having ascended to his brain, he threw himself into a variety of strange attitudes and uttered words which were supposed to have a prophetic meaning.
A temple was then erected on the spot, and dedicated to Apollo which is known as the Oracle of Delphi.
The word oracle comes from the Latin verb ōrāre, “to speak” and properly refers to the priest or priestess of Pythia uttering the prophecy containing the revelations of the God Apollo which were written down and interpreted by the priests who afterward communicated to the persons who had come to consult the oracle.
How the word delphi is connected to the dolphin and Apollo is described in an old Delphian or Pythian oracle. “It is open to students to regard the dolphin as only one of the many animals whose earlier worship is concentrated in Apollo, or to take the creature for the symbol of spring when seafaring becomes easier to mortals, or to interpret the dolphin as the result of a volks-etymologic (popular derivation), in which the name Delphi (meaning originally a hollow in the hills) was connected with delphis, the dolphin.” — Lang, Myth, Ritual, etc., 2,197.
The Science of the Vapors Which Produce Prophecy
It appears that the vapors arising from the pit are the source or cause of the action of prophecy for the priests and priestesses but the science as to how this occurred is still being debated. The early Christian Church Fathers said the purpose of the oracles were for demons which allowed to assist them to spread idolatry; so that the need for a savior would be more evident.
Other researchers had speculated that the vapors and subsequent oracles were the results of some type of narcotic or sulphuric compound such as gas emissions from a geologic chasm in the earth. Some researchers suggest the possibility that it might be ethylene gas, methane, CO2, or H2S.
A new theory is based on oleander, most commonly known as nerium. Apparently, a researcher has put forth erroneous claims that it causes symptoms similar to those of the Pythia and similar to those of epilepsy, the “sacred disease.” In my opinion, this explanation is false because nerium does not produce the same effects and this has been proven by science.
Ingestion of this plant does poison humans producing toxic effects such as nausea, vomiting, excess salivation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, irregular heart rate, drowsiness, tremors or shaking of the muscles, seizures, collapse, and even coma that can lead to death. But the facts are that it does not make you hallucinate and only one human death from oleander/nerium has ever been recorded.
The most commonly accepted explanation is the one made by Plutarch who said that the vapors from the Kerna spring waters that flowed under the temple. In my opinion, Plutarch’s official “public explanation” would have been purposely misleading due to the fact that he was a High Priest who would also know the secret operations, ingredients and even the science of the Delphic Oracle which he would have been under an oath of secrecy not to divulge.
What I have found in my research is that the leaves of the oleander/nerium plant’s are prone to fungus/mold infections.
I believe that the vapors were the result of a process of rotting flesh which contained various organisms such as fungi/molds that we know today have the ability to take over other organisms and also produce hallucinating and delirious effects. An example would be the fungus ergot which contains lysergic acid as well as its precursor, ergotamine – the ingredients for the famous hallucinogenic drug- LSD. I will expand more on this theory in a future article.
It was reported that the Pythia of the Oracle of Delphi was always a “native of Delphi” or of the native land in which the oracles were consulted. I believe they did this because these people would have always been considered as representing the earth or “earthborn” as some of the oldest inhabitants on earth so in their minds, these natives would have DNA coming from the same said lands so they would naturally be closer to the source of our origins which came from within the earth.
This is why we find in almost all ancient secret initiation rituals were conducted inside caves such as one of the most famous in antiquity is the cave of Zeus at Mt. Ida on Crete. The same cave where Epimenides Gnosis would awaken from a 57-year slumber to go to purify Athens to then become the founder of the Orphic (Ophite/Levite) Religion and later Pythagoras would spend three days alone as part of his initiation rites of Knossos to become a leading Gnostic of the Pythagoreans.
In the early stages of the development of their religion, young virgin girls who were never allowed to marry were utilized as oracles. Diodorus explains how the Pythia was always a clad young virgin with great emphasis on the girl’s chastity and purity to be reserved for union with the god Apollo but after one priestess had been seduced by Echecrates the Thessalian, the Delphians made a law that in future no one should be elected who had not attained the age of fifty years. He writes;
“Echecrates the Thessalian, having arrived at the shrine and beheld the virgin who uttered the oracle, became enamoured of her because of her beauty, carried her away and violated her; and that the Delphians because of this deplorable occurrence passed a law that in the future a virgin should no longer prophesy but that an elderly woman of fifty would declare the Oracles and that she would be dressed in the costume of a virgin, as a sort of reminder of the prophetess of olden times.”
One of the most famous Greek writers and philosopher, Plutarch was actually a High Priest of Apollo at Delphi during the late first century and early second century CE. He would have been in charge of overseeing the Cult, the priestesses, interpretations of the prophecies, conduct sacrifices at other festivals of Apollo, collect money for the Temple treasury and would have been an official of the Pythian games.
Plutarch said that the Pythia’s life was shortened through the service of Apollo. Apparently, being a Pythia was a very dangerous job because it was said to be common that the Pythia would go crazy after the ceremony as she often leaped from the tripod in mad convulsions (epileptic seizures?) and then would die soon after.
As the cult developed and the priests became more learned more about the dangers associated with divination, the priestesses were then chosen from poor families in the empire and there were always two Pythias, who took their seat on the tripod alternately, and a third alternate was kept ready in case one of the others went mad or died.
More on the Delphic Oracle Connection to Crete
The Oracle of Delphi may be connected to the more Ancient Cult of Rhea (Mother Earth/Cybelle/Rhea/Gaia/Magna Mater) on Crete which was based on honoring and serving God, nature and the earth. For example, one of the most important riteswas the doctrine of purification, which had its roots in Crete.
Thus the Delphic oracle was essentially Cretan Cult in character which I will prove below.
To the Ancient Cretans (Phoenicians), Greeks and in all countries around the Mediterranean, no religious institution in all of antiquity had obtained such a paramount influence, as the Oracle of Delphi. Delphi was the most famous place for this secret religion of the oracles of Zeus (Jupiter) which could also be found at Boetia, the Siwa Oasis, Dodona, and at Olympia.
In researching the origins of this religion, it appears to have originated on the Holy Islands of Crete and Delos which was said to have been the birthplace of Appollo who was the son of the God Zeus who was also born on Crete and hid in the mountain of the Hellenistic Jews – Mount Ida.
In the Delphi Complete Works of Diodorus Siculus, he had written that Apollo has been called Delian and Lycian and Pythian, and Artemis has been called Ephesian and Cretan and Tauropolian and Persian, although both of them were born in Crete.
Siculus said Apollo was the discoverer of the lyre and of the music which is got from it; that he introduced the knowledge of healing, which is brought about through the faculty of prophecy, whereby it was the practice in ancient times that the sick were healed; and as the discoverer of the bow he taught the people of the land all about the use of the bow, this being the reason why the art of archery is especially cultivated by the Cretans and the bow is called “Cretan.”
He further stated, “To Apollo and Coronis was born Asclepius, who learned from his father many matters which pertain to the healing art, and then went on to discover the art of surgery and the preparations of drugs and the strength to be found in roots, and, speaking generally, he introduced such advances into the healing art that he is honored as if he were its source and founder.”
A paean is a song, poem or hymn which expressed triumph or thanksgiving was sung during the religious ceremonies. In the MycenaeanLinear B tablets found on Crete, the word pa-ja-wo-ne is used as a name for a healer god which was later associated with Apollo and his son Asclepius.
Further connections to Crete can be found in the Homer’s Iliad in the Hymn to Apollo, in which Apollo himself is introduced conducting a band of Cretans (Phoenicians), who came from the city of Gnosis – Knossus, Krissa (Krisa/CreUSA). Apollo chose his first priests, whom he selected in their “swift ship” were “Cretans from Minos’ city of Knossos (Gnosis)” who were voyaging to sandy Pylos.
In the form of a dolphin (delphys”, gen. “delphinos), Apollo leapt into the ship and revealed himself to the terrified Cretans, and bade them follow him up to the “place where you will have rich offerings”. The Cretans “danced in time and followed, singing Iē Paiēon, like the paeans of the Cretans in whose breasts the divine Muse has placed “honey-voiced singing”.
These were Apollos Cretan priests of Pytho who we find as the head musician playing the lyre, and the Cretans follow beating drums and singing “paeans such as the Cretans sing to whom the divine muse has given the gift of sweet song.”
Historian, Professor G.L. Huxley had said, “If the hymn to (Delphic) Apollo conveys a historical message, it is above all that there were once Cretan priests at Delphi.”
These songs and dances I believe were for healing Thaletas was able to heal with his songs; Epimenides Gnosis was the magically gifted purifier and lawgiver who saved the Athenians and who after his death the Spartans held as a God. These paean hymns were also associated with the war and dances of the priesthood of the Curetes in Crete in honor of Zeus whom they were assigned as protectors. The Homeric Hymn expressly states that the Cretan priests sang paeans at their advent at Delphi, and were of a distinctly Cretan character.
While these myths seem fantastical to the casual researcher, these facts can also easily be backed by science because we know today that the Holy Island of Crete is known as the birthplace of Western Civilization and the ancient Cretans (Phoenicians) were very skilled in magic, religion, writing, war, music, and dancing which was “how the West was truly won.”
Historical evidence also states that the invention of the “paeonic meter” was consistently attributed to Crete” and its introduction into Greece was assigned to the Cretan Thaletas.” The poems of Archilochus (7th century BC) and ancient scholars mention it such as Alcman (7th century BC) and other poets who wrote in Sparta.
Later in the 5th century BC,Pindar also mentions the paeans and he was said to be especially fond of the Pythian Apollo of Delphi. The ancient Greek poet, Euripides speaks of the Delian women singing the paean in honor of Apollo and swaying in beautiful dance before the doors of the temple.
In the later days of Cicero and Plutarch, the Delphic Oracle began to lose its influence but was still continued to be consulted down to the times of the Roman Emperor Julian, until at last it was altogether banned by Roman Emperor Theodosius I who was the last emperor to rule over both the eastern and the western halves of the Roman Empire.
