royal flush: dallying while bidding for waity katy

Who will be the lamb and who will be the knife? Prince William, when and if he becomes king,  will be the first Stuart king since James I, son of Mary Queen of Scots, in over 400 years. Secret potions, aphrodisiacs, magic, sacred geometry, and strange pageantries marked James’s reign. Not much has been altered since.

Did you know that the current heir to the throne, Prince Charles is a huge fan of sacred geometry? In his book Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World, he asserts that order can be restored in the world through a rediscovery of “classical knowledge” (ie. sacred geometry). One section of the book details what he calls “the grammar of harmony,” curious mathematical constants, like the golden ratio and the Fibonacci sequence, that can be found throughout nature. The ubiquity of these constants, he argues, hints that we do not live in an “accidental universe.” No we don’t, and if all the symbolism surrounding the upcoming Royal Wedding is correct, a new order of the cosmos is fast approaching.

---Ben Jonson (1573-1637) was one of the foremost of the Jacobean dramatists. He wrote a number of plays (both comedies and tragedies) and a series of stylised masques for the Court. He had a keen eye for the follies of his contemporaries, and in this play he particularly satirises human gullibility. He displays considerable understanding of alchemy and makes many jokes based on its symbolism (and in two places even refers to Dee and Kelly). He obviously expected the audience for this play to have some knowledge of alchemical ideas. Jonson’s The Alchemist written in 1610, thus presents us with a satirical window through which we can see one way in which alchemy was perceived in the opening decade of the 17th century.---Read More:

Over the years, several handsome young men found their way to the king James I heart, his purse, and some said, his bed. At thirteen, James fell in love with his cousin Esme Stuart, whom the Scot’s nobles finally banished from the court for holding  the king  “in black darkness of shameful servitude.” Later in England, James took up with Robert Carr, the earl of Somerset; but scandal erupted when Somerset and his wife, Frances Howard, were convicted of murder. The last and most successful of the king’s favorites was the dashing and corrupt George Villers, whom James created duke of Buckingham in 1623. As James fell into senility, Buckingham virtually held the reins of power….

George Villiers. attributed to William Larkin. 1616. ---King James (VI of Scotland, I of England) (1566–1625) was introduced to twenty-one-year-old George Villiers, son of an untitled and impoverished squire, in the summer of 1614. "Steenie", James's nickname for Villiers, is apparently derived from the biblical description of St Stephen having "the face of an angel," for Villiers according to all contemporary accounts (and surviving paintings) was "the handsomest-bodied man in England." In November that year he was appointed the royal cupbearer, in April the following year he was knighted and by August 1615 he was James's bedpartner; the men spent a few days together at Farnham Castle that month, which Buckingham recalled in a lettter to James years later, wondering "whether you loved me now . . . better than at the time which I shall never forget at Farnham, where the bed's head could not be found between the master and his dog." His spectacular rise continued: he was created Master of the Horse and Knight of the Garter and given a Viscountcy in 1616, and made the Earl of Buckingham in 1617. In response to the Privy Council's remonstrations against such blatant favoritism, James defended himself: "I, James, am neither a god nor an angel, but a man like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess to loving those dear to me more than other men. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had his John, and I have my George." The next year Villiers became a Marquess in 1618, Lord High Admiral in 1619, and finally the Duke of Buckingham in 1623. In that year Buckingham wrote to James from Madrid, beginning "Dere Dad and Gossope" (gossip, from godparent, meaning chum) and closing "Your most humble slave and servant and doge ( dog ) Steenie." The two men were notorious for their kissing and carressing of one another in public, and their heedless contempt for public opinion contributed to the civil crisis enveloping the nation.

As the last of the Elizabethans counselors around James passed away, notably Lord Salisbury, the reign of James went downhill with a rush and a thud. Parliament was dissolved with no money voted and no legislation passed. Worse was to come. In 1616, it was discovered that Frances Howard, the wife of James’s prime favorite, Lord Somerset, had engineered the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury, who knew too much about the aphrodisiacs she had used to hook Somerset between the sheets, and the suppressants she had used to secure a divorce for nonconsummation from her first husband, the Earl of Sussex.

---It meant that a real King Arthur would arise and live his second advent as the Antichrist. Equally as strage is how Clnton Ortiz then discovered in March 1997, some months before Diana was killed, that a very young Prince William, firstborn of Princess Diana, was already being connected to the classic Arthurian figure in a modern biography of King Arthur, that stated just that. Moreover, Princess Diana herself verbally cited that her son would become like another King Arthur who shall reform the Monarchy and rule in compassion and peace. From that point forward, Ortiz began to heavily research the lineages of the British Royal Family and its Merovingian connections only to then find such research invariably leads to Secret Societies and their plot toward placing their god Lucifer's own Messiah at the helm of an already established New World Order.---Read More: image:

Though he was most probably innocent, Somerset was put on trial with his wife, and both were found guilty. The evidence brought forward was such that James and his court permanently forfeited what little respect they enjoyed among serious people; and if anything was salvaged at all, it was due to the king’s new favorite, George Villiers, successively earl, marquis, and duke of Buckingham, who emerged after Somerset’s fall.

Like his master, Buckingham has had a bad press. He was the last in a long line of handsome, well-shaped royal favorites. Whether James’s relations with these men were actively homosexual or not we do not know, for the evidence itself is not clear: some things point to it, some point away. In any important sense the question is irrelevant. Buckingham was disliked not because he was thought to be taking the king to bed but because he took over the direction of the government.

James was unable to project an acceptable aura to his people, and his reign had not progressed far when they began nostalgically to celebrate November 17, the ascension day of Queen Eliza

I, that genius in self advertisement. James had the misfortune to live in an era of evolutionary changes, especially in the economy and the social structure, which must lead sooner or later to a confrontation between king and people. He was a relic of Renaissance kingship in a new era identified by the destructive enthusiasms of his contemporaries.

---The solutions to this enigma involve a twilight world where modern intelligence agencies, a 'fake' secret society (the Prieure du Notre Dame du Sion) and the royal family claims of the House of David. Historical analysis covers Pythagorean and Egyptian sacred geometry and mathematics (symptomatic of post-industrial society hyper-specialization); the hidden cultural legacies of the Cathars and the Knights Templar; mythopoeic themes in Nicolas Poussin's painting 'Et In Arcadia Ego' and anything from Satanic Bloodlines and Richard Hoagland's 'Face On Mars' to Chaos Theory and DNA phylogenetic memories. Embarking on the 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' mystery means exploring where Pop Culture and the Sacred intersect in an infinite regressing nest of quantum combinations. The original book spawned several television documentaries and brought contemporary occult subcultures into the mainstream (even influencing conspiracy theorists like Robert Anton Wilson), foreshadowing the impact of the 'X-Files' television series with a combination of foreboding and wonder that entranced audiences worldwide. If many early conspiriologists feel that armchair conspiracy theorizing has become too popular and too mainstream, then the 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' phenomena may be seen in retrospect as the critical turning point where a Culture exploded beyond previous thresholds and began to devour itself. ---Read More: image:

But unhappily the young king, at an early period of his reign, fell under the influence of two worthless and profligate courtiers, who strove but too successfully to make him forget all that Buchanan had taught him. These were Esme Stuart, a cousin of his father, who now arrived from France, and was afterwards created Earl of Lennox; and Captain James Stuart, a son of Lord Ochiltree, a man of profligate manners, whose unprincipled ambition was rewarded with the title and estates of the unfortunate Earl of Arran. The sum of what these men taught James was that there was neither power nor glory in a throne unless the monarch were absolute, and that as the jurisdiction of the Protestant Church of his native country was the great obstacle in the way of his governing according to his own arbitrary will, it behoved him above all things to sweep away the jurisdiction of Presbyterianism. An independent Kirk and an absolute throne could not co-exist in the same realm. These maxims accorded but too well with the traditions of his house and his own prepossessions not to be eagerly imbibed by the king. He proved an apt scholar, and the evil transformation wrought upon him by the counselors to whom he had surrendered himself was completed by his initiation into scenes of youthful debauchery….

The Popish politicians on the Continent foresaw, of course, that James VI would mount the throne of England; and there is reason to think that the mission of the polished and insinuating but unprincipled Esme Stuart had reference to that expectation. The Duke of Guise sent him to restore the broken link between Scotland and France; to fill James’s mind with exalted notions of his own prerogative; to inspire him with a detestation of Presbyterian Protestantism, the greatest foe of absolute power; and to lead him back to Rome, the great upholder of the Divine right of kings.
