Secret Societies and Hidden Knowledge: The Explosive Star that Inspired the Modern World

(Read the article on one page)

A few weeks ago, astronomers announced that in 2022 something truly spectacular is to occur: a new star will appear in the heavens. It will be the first such event visible with the naked eye for over 400 years. Created by the collision of two relatively dim stars, the resultant explosion is known as a “boom star.”

When this rare celestial occurrence takes place it will create a so-called red nova that will shine so brightly that it will be clearly seen at night in the constellation of Cygnus the swan. The last time a “new star” became visible without the aid of modern telescopes was in 1604, although this one was caused by a supernova, an exploding far-away sun that remained visible for many months. That one occurred in the constellation of Ophiuchus, the serpent-bearer, and its remnants can still been seen as a beautiful ring nebula by astronomers today.

At a distance of 20,000 light years, the supernova was too far away to have any physical effect on Earth, but its appearance did have a significant psychological impact. It led to a remarkable series of sociological episodes that radically shaped history.

A Heavenly Sign Heralds a New Era of Enlightenment

The 1604 event is known as Kepler's Supernova, after the astronomer who made detailed observations of it at the time. However, it was not only professional star gazers who were enamored by the occurrence; it ignited an entirely new philosophical movement. In the same year, the German theologian Simon Studion published his Naometria (“Temple Measurement”), in which he interpreted the event in astrological terms, heralding the birth of a new era of enlightenment. Studion, it seems, believed that the new star was a heavenly sign, such as the star of Bethlehem is said to have proclaimed the birth of Christ. This new age was envisaged to include the advancement of scientific, religious, and social freedoms, and – a revolutionary concept for the time – the emergence of a new political order based around a powerful woman or queen.

Within a few years, a group known as the Rosicrucians (named after their emblem depicting a rose and cross) began to disseminate pamphlets along similar lines. Collectively called the Rosicrucian Manifestos, these works implied that Princess Elizabeth, the daughter of James I of England, was the woman who would somehow unite Europe into a kind of renaissance European Union. In 1613, Elizabeth had married Frederick V, the Elector (prince) of the Palatinate— a region of what is now south-western Germany.

The marriage is cryptically referenced in these Rosicrucian writings, in particular the 1616 publication referred to as The Alchemical Wedding . It seems that the society interpreted Elizabeth’s wedding, which was to cement an alliance between England and the protestant states of Germany, as being the start of the imagined European confederation. However, it all fell apart in 1619 when Fredrick was offered the throne of Bohemia in the modern Czech Republic. Elizabeth and Fredrick reigned as king and queen for just a few months before being deposed, and fled, ultimately to settle in the Netherlands. Because of her short reign, Elizabeth became known as the Winter Queen, but her descendant, Willem-Alexander, is king of the Netherlands today. Even though Elizabeth never became the envisaged Euro-queen, the ideals of religious and intellectual freedom of expression expounded by the Rosicrucian Manifestos continued to inspire others. It has even been suggested that those who organized the Mayflower voyage of 1620 had been Rosicrucians.

Cryptic messages, mysterious ciphers, and enigmatic symbolism

Very little is known about the original Rosicrucians as their pamphlets were published anonymously during the second decade of the seventeenth century. These works were clearly inspired by Studion’s Naometria, in that they disseminated the idea of a coming age of enlightenment heralded by the new star, but whether or not the Rosicrucians were a Europe-wide secret society of the learned individuals, as their works claimed, is open to debate. However, the authors of these texts wittingly or unwittingly initiated a variety of movements that had considerable ramifications on world history.



The Rosicrucian movement and origins are part of the subject matter of -The Royal Secret - book on the life of Francis Bacon and his founding of the Rosicrucian movement with Robert Fludd, John Dee and others in Germany as a passive replacement for the more militant ideals of the Knights Templar. The Royal Secret shows evidence that the Red Rose emblem stemmed from the time of the Egyptians to Mary Magdalene to King Arthur Pendragon and on to the Tudors and the revival of Freemasonry by Bacon.

They lie about Planet X and spray toxic chemtrails to hide it.
The entire government are evil treasonous criminals! The day of the next false flag using the nuke the evil government stole in 2007 and blamed on Iran, America will be annihilated by Russia, China and the SCO. This is the war of Armageddon and you can know it is now because of Planet X and the toxic chemtrails that hide it every day globally for the past decade. Planet X will end the war when it rips the earth apart again but by then 90% of Americans will be dead already. All planned by your evil government and their evil alien masters!

There is a lot of nonsense is in conspiracy theories used to hide the real truth, like Renegadeprophet’s comment which causes confusion.
On the other hand John Bentley’s comment is very accurate:
“The Rosicrucian movement and origins are part of the subject matter of -The Royal Secret - book on the life of Francis Bacon (Jeremy: Bacon was a Mason and predicted that America would be claimed by the Vatican [The Catholic Columbus did this] and would be used to create the New World Order i.e. world government) and his founding of the Rosicrucian movement with Robert Fludd, John Dee and others in Germany (Jeremy: The Enlightenment Movement [Illuminati agnostics or revival of Gnosticism. Man’s knowledge worshipped as a god as promised by Satan to Eve. This led to atheistic Darwinism] started here and Higher criticism of the Bible), as a passive replacement for the more militant ideals of the Knights Templar (Jeremy: Wrong. The Knights Templar Masons were arrested in 1307 tried, and burned at the stake for worshipping Baphomet a transgender idol of Satan, and for attempting to over throw the governments of Europe to set up the revived Roman Empire i.e. Babel and PreFlood world government destroyed in 2347 BC by Noah’s Flood. The Knights Templar fled to Scotland and created the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry called the Knights Templars today). The Royal Secret shows evidence that the Red Rose (Jeremy: Many Illuminati have photos of them holding a red rose. Symbolizing the red bloodline of the Royal Nephilim) emblem stemmed from the time of the Egyptians to Mary Magdalene to King Arthur Pendragon and on to the Tudors and the revival of Freemasonry by Bacon. (Jeremy: The Egyptians were of the Nephilim bloodlines and they were the origin of most of the practices in secret societies. It is falsely claimed that Mary Magdalene produced offspring by Jesus, a famous heresy created by the Gnostics to undermine belief in the deity of Christ. This heresy was made popular in The Passover Plot and The Da Vinci Code. It will be used by the future Antichrist to claim he is of the bloodline of King David and Jesus. He will actually be of the bloodline of the Nephilim and Nimrod through King Solomon. King Arthur Pendragon was a Knights Templar and of the Nephilim bloodline or Rose Line. He was a Pendragon Mason. Pendragon means son of the Dragon or Satan.)”
The Rosicrucians are one of the many organizations that make up the Illuminati. They are part of a movement that goes back to Nimrod/Semiramis of Babel which was scattered across the world like a disease. Today we call them Liberals. This Illuminati Conspiracy was originally founded by Cain. Then revived about 1900 BC at Babel by Nimrod/Semiramis who produced Nephilim offspring. It is said that Semiramis was taken up to space to visit with the Pagan gods and thus became a goddess. She is the archetype which all goddess worship was founded under different names when language was changed at Babel. Legend says she came back in what appeared to be an egg (origin of Easter eggs) and a hatch opened and she stepped out. Typical UFO abduction where the victim says she became pregnant by a space alien.
All world leaders have been descendants of these Nephilim hybrids or Blue Bloods mainly French Royalty the Merovingians. This is why Alexander the Great claimed he was the offspring of the gods which he learned from his mother.
The star or Pentagram is a satanic symbol of the goddess or witchcraft. It represents the Egyptian worship of the eye star Sirius. Many UFO contactees claim their alien spirit guides came from a planet around this star. Also the Illuminati clime this and it is represented as the eye in the triangle. Which is the eye of Horus in Egypt, the reincarnation of Nimrod the sun god symbolized as the solar magic square of 666.
Egypt is also where the worship of one god replaced polytheism. It was Akhenaten father of the famous Tutankhamun. He worshipped the 36th god of the sun 666 which represents Baal or Satan.
When the super nova occurred in 1613 the astrologers believed it represented the reincarnation of Semiramis because it resembled the Egyptian eye of Horus. The Catholics worship her as the Madonna or Queen of Heaven condemned by God in the Bible. The Jesuits are part of the Illuminati conspiracy. The Knights Templars are behind the secular Antichrist, and the Jesuits are behind the False Prophet, symbolized as King Arthur and Merlin the builder of Stonehenge and other megalithic structures.

"A heresy created by the Gnostics"



What evidence makes you think the Egyptians were Nephilim? Seems to me the Bible indicates the remnants of the Nephilim were in Canaan, which is why the Israelites genocided the place, killing every last man, woman, and child, then burned the bodies along with the treasures of the cities, buried what was left, and salted the earth over the burial. YHWH did not approve of Nephas, even ones that had created peaceful, prosperous city states together with humans.

The USA is the land of Canaan and the Mountains of Israel and Zion and Armageddon. The unedited version of Genesis (the Lost Book of Enki) says the Canaanites were marked genetically so they can not grow a beard and exiled them to the other side of the earth. The Bible says that we took the land of Canaan to do with them as we pleased. Only pure blooded Natinve Americans can not grow a beard. The Bible also unmistakably describes the USA and the war that is about to destroy the USA. The nephilim giants were here too. Native American legends and many giant remains are a testament to this.

Well that's weird, since Moses and the Israelites supposedly walked to Canaan through a desert from Egypt in the Exodus.

You call my post confusing? You are STUPID. Your post is nothing but BS lies designed to confuse. True history doesnt include your fairy tales and is quite easy to understand when one reads and thinks instead of listening to crap like you posted and the evil lying churches.

Tsurugi's picture

I may be stupid but I'm not a church, lol. And I'm pretty sure I just posted what is actually contained in the ancient texts, while you are inferring a bunch of things that are not.

If you consider the Gnostics to be heretics, you have a lot in common with the Roman Catholic church, btw.

the mis-spelling of Robert Fludd's name in this article is the least of its problems. The author seems to have very little regard for actual facts.

The "Speculum Sophicum Rhodostauroticum" for example is not a central work of early Rosicrucianism at all. It is very secondary to the literature surrounding this phenomenon. The actual works that started the movement were 1. The Fama Fraternitatis - 2. The Confessio Fraternitatis and 3. The Alchemical Wedding - the third of these is also only a peripheral work, almost an afterthoughtl. The first two are the actual original messages. The Fama especially, published in 1614, caused quite a furor and seemed to be in large part a denunciation of the corrupt roman catholic papacy.

Almost everything of history in this article is slip shod, made up nonsense. Not sure if it was meant for PC reasons but the central figure of the expected reforms was the elector palatine himself not his queen - see Frances Yates "The Rosicrucian Enlightenment".

But the most offensive part of this article is that it displays a complete lack of understanding of alchemy or rosicrucianism. The organizing of the order was certainly an immense force for enlightenment and justice in the world but that has nothing to do with replacing the traditional age old wisdon of alchemy with modern chemistry or a modern understanding of what science should be.

John Dee, Francis Bacon and Valentin Andreas wrote Der Fama Fraternitas. The first two of these practised alchemy and astronomy which in their lifetime thanks mainly to new discoveries helped by the invention of the telescope merged into what is known today as science and astrology.

So while everyone is looking at the illustration above ... the one of the college on wheels where they say it shows the 1604 supernova in snake bearer constellation... what everyone seems to miss is the other supernova displayed in Cygnus the swan at the top right... the 2022 supernova... predicted in 1618... wtf

I saw this and wondered why the author hadn't made the connection or mention of this. Coincidence? I think not.

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.". 2 Cor. 11:14

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.". Eph. 6:12

YES! I freaked when I noticed that!

Renegade you are experiencing what is known as confirmation bias. You want to believe in conspiracies that is fine but you are following fake ones produced by the church and not understanding history correctly. Planet X isn't fact, that video is 9 years old by a guy who was proved wrong. Be careful what you take as truth, how do you know the author of any book you read wasn't crazy? Apocalyptic yearnings from religious texts are deliberately pushed by you know who. Groups fighting for religious and scientific freedom against the church have been vilified and called heretics for centuries. Surely a conspiracy buff as open minded and prestigious as yourself has access to rational thinking. Ancient myth and superstition is used for control. Do you really believe Christianity isn't controlled by a certain someone else? How better to get people afraid of an enemy? You need to study how they have manipulated throughout history. Evil is a good word to study the etymology of. Why would a group form against religion to protect the poor and uneducated from witch trials born of silly superstition and promote modern science and astronomy? Now ask why would the arrogant, self important church leaders make them out to be heretics? Use common sense. You have fell into their trap and are promoting their agenda.

RationalityNow You are an evil government liar or you are incredibly stupid. It is my experience that the stupid dont try to argue with facts but you evil treasonous liars always try to and lose!

Planet X was confirmed in 1983 when NASA launched IRAS specifically to look for it because they knew something was there for over a hundred years. They immediately announced it in two major newspapers before they lied about it.Jason Martells video is old but it tells all about all the ancient civilizations who all have warned us that Planet X will return. It caused the sinking of Atlantic and the flood of Noahs day. Anyone can see the toxic chemtrails sprayed every single day for the past decade to hide it. Anyone can see the big red glow coming from down left of the white sun every day before and during sunset. Anyone can see the blood red moon during eclipses that never happened before. Even the Bible warns that the moon will turn to blood before the War of Armageddon or America. Anyone can see the exponential increase in seismic and volcanic activity and also all the large meteors now hitting our atmosphere.

All religions are controlled lies who promote fairy tales. Planet X and the gods who made us are not fairy tales. We have fused chromosomes, which is not possible in nature.

In todays current society, YOU are the treasonous liar who is trying to manipulate the sheeple with your lies, with no information. We know the evil government has hired thousands of internet liars and run most all of the "alternative" news site, with the exception of maybe this one. My comment comes directly from the Bible and it says exactly what it means. The stupid churchies have been brainwashed to not even read the book, they just spout nonsense, like you and all the evil treasonous government liars! I even posted the news that confirms everything that the Bible says. So STFU stupid government liar because your evil masters want you and your family dead too but you will deserve it for being guilty of treason and accessory to genocide!

I need spiritual power to control fortune for my life and my wife.kindly assist.

Most scholars now agree the Rosicrucian fraternity was an invention of Johannes Valentinus Andreae. He even admitted to making it up later in his life. Many people were taken in by the ludibrium, and petitioned for membership, and it's likely some groups were formed along the Rosicrucian principles. But the majority of scholars would not agree the existence of the fraternity was "debatable.:

JonBee's picture

The Der Fama is very much in existence and was the product of John Dee,Valentin Andrea and Francis Bacon working together over a period of years. All of whom were associated with and were believed to have started the Rosicrucian movement which was, and still is todaay, believed to be the inner sanctum of Freemasonry which Bacon revived from its original Hermetic beliefs. There are Rosicrucian associations dotted around the world today.  The Roseline descended from Egyptian times through Mary Magdalene and the Templar movement to the Tudors teaching ancient beliefs which the anti Christ Catholic Church opposed and labelled as satanic. In the famous picture of Valentin Andrea can be seen reference to the Roseline and also to Francis Bacon.  I suggest reading Roslyn by Sinclair on the establishment of  Roslyn Chapel (still very much in existence, and thought to have held the Arc of the Covenant at one time) . Rex Deus, another brilliant book on the single theme linking the Masonic past to the present, and The Royal Secret – my own book on the subject – a suggested book for this month by Ancient Origins.

The last new star, shown upper left in the pamphlet for the invisible college (p,2 of the article) shows the star in the constellation of the serpent bearer. In the upper right of the illustration, it shows another star in the upper right, in the constellation of the swan, where our new, new star is supposed to appear. How did they know? Freaking mysterious.

Wait a minute, the pamphlet for the invisible college (page 2) from 1618, CLEARLY also shows the new, new star in the upper right hand corner. ? Answers anybody?

I know, right? We apparently only discovered this predicted nova 2013... and only confirmed in2016... so yeah officially mind blown

Ancient Places

View point towards Katun River, Atlai Mountains
Giant ramparts guarded Altai Mountains against attack from the north, says leading archaeologist Professor Andrey Borodovsky. The wall complex - now almost hidden to the naked eye - is believed to date from a long era that also saw such constructions as the Great Wall of China and Hadrian's Wall.
