From her bewitching mother Anne Boleyn to her dangerously obsessive sister “Bloody” Mary Tudor and from the rivals to her throne such as Mary Queen of Scots and the sisters of Lady Jane Grey, to the “flouting wenches” and faithful servants who attended her at court – all had a story to tell. By piecing together their accounts Elizabeth began to emerge in a startling new light. She appears as domineering, cruel and vindictive as well as vulnerable, loyal and compassionate with a devilish flirtatious streak. In short she is more human than the public face she presented to the rest of the world. One of the most fascinating aspects of Elizabeth to be revealed was the truth behind her determination to appear in a masculine light. There can be little doubt that this was a ploy on her part to overcome the prejudices that existed about female rulers. But she played the part so well that both her contemporaries and subsequent historians began to suspect that she was more man than woman – at least in behavior and intellect if not in other, rather more profound ways.
In order to understand the Alchemical and Hermetic traditions, a lesson in symbology is essential. Often, groups operating under these guises would mask profound philosophical truths in the form of images. One such image is the Great Hermaphrodite. The symbol deals with “Hierosgamos“, or the union of opposites. On a very base level you could interpret the Great Hermaphrodite as a western equivalent to the Ying-Yang symbol of the oriental traditions; but the rabbit hole continues deeper. The alchemists, in their quest for philosophical gold, considered the world to be influenced and manipulated by a multitude of paired forces: wet and dry, cold and hot, sun and moon, male and female, proton and neutron, etc. When these opposing forces are harmonized and balanced through synthesis, creation is commenced. The Great Hermaphrodite is an amalgam of this union. However, the historical precedent reaches farther back then the European alchemists. In ancient Mesopotamia, the source of so much of the west’s occult theory, we see the first glimpses of the Great Hermaphrodite. One union not mentioned above was the joining of the divine with the earthly. The Mesopotamian king, considered the divine representative, would join with a hierodule (‘sacred prostitute’). The sexual union was seen as the mediator between the godly and the human. It was believed that this sexual encounter ensured that the wheels of creation kept spinning, and liberated the world from the cold and motionless grasp of matter. It is worth noting that Christians borrowed this belief; Christ being born from the union of Jehovah with the very human Mary.
Middlesex is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Jeffrey Eugenides published in 2002. The book is a bestseller, with more than three million copies sold by May 2011. Its characters and events are loosely based on aspects of Eugenides' life and observations of his Greek heritage. It is not an autobiography; unlike the protagonist, Eugenides is not intersex. The author decided to write Middlesex after he read the 1980 memoir Herculine Barbin and was unsatisfied with its discussion of intersex anatomy and emotions. Primarily a Bildungsroman and family saga, the novel chronicles the impact of a mutated gene on three generations of a Greek family, causing momentous changes in the protagonist's life. According to scholars, the novel's main themes are nature versus nurture, rebirth, and the differing experiences of polar opposites—such as those found between men and women. It discusses the pursuit of the American Dream and explores gender identity. The novel contains many allusions to Greek mythology, including creatures such as the Minotaur, half-man and half-bull, and the Chimera, a monster composed of various animal parts. Narrator and protagonist Cal Stephanides (initially called "Callie") is an intersex man of Greek descent with a condition known as 5-alpha-reductase deficiency, which causes him to have certain feminine traits. The first half of the novel is about Cal's family, and depicts his grandparents' migration from Smyrna, a city in Asia Minor, to the United States in 1922. It then follows their assimilation into American society. The latter half of the novel, set in the late 20th century, focuses on Cal's experiences in his hometown Detroit, Michigan, and his escape to San Francisco where he comes to terms with his modified gender identity. Entertainment Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times Book Review considered Middlesex one of the best books of 2002, and some scholars believed the novel should be considered for the title of Great American Novel. Generally, reviewers felt that the novel succeeded in portraying its Greek immigrant drama and were also impressed with Eugenides' depiction of his hometown of Detroit—praising him for his social commentary. Reviewers from the medical, gay, and intersex communities mostly praised Middlesex. In 2007, the book was featured in Oprah's Book Club.
Homosexuality, transgenderism and the attack on male/female are steps in a long-term satanic plan to make human reproduction a function of the State, like education. They want to breed us like cattle.
What is the great secret behind the Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile? Actually, it's quite mundane. The Akashic Records merely confirm that she is actually a man in drag. But, it's not just harmless fun, however.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5 Becoming a god is a fundamental part of both Satanic and New Age practices. While cross-dressing may be a rebellion against oppressive restrictions like the Bible, what power do the elite derive from creating gender confusion amongst a considerable portion of the population? First of all, through Magickal, alchemical means i.e. drugs and chemicals, it is possible to create both mental and physical changes in slaves and lesser mortals. That is pretty powerful stuff! Furthermore, what Magick could be greater than making the American people flush the US Constitution willingly down the toilet or make them see breaking God's Covenant, as stated in the Bible, become the greatest and highest virtue?
Shirley MacLaine (queen of the New Age Movement) came to the conclusion that she was not herself a distinct entity, but that she was instead completely identified with all that surrounded her. This belief that everything is essentially one leads New Age followers to believe in pantheism, the idea that all is God. The unity of all reality tells them that everything is divine, including themselves. If all is one, then there are no distinctions, and all is God. Again, Shirley MacLaine writes, "I am God, because all energy is plugged into the same source. We are all individualized reflections of the God source. God is in us and we are God." From a New Age perspective, this concept is the key to unlocking one's true potential, for to realize that you are God is to realize that you have no finite limitations. But there's a problem with this claim. If God does not have limited knowledge or abilities, why would we have to grow in knowledge if we are God? Why would we even have to come to the conclusion that we are divine? If we are unlimited, why are we so limited that we do not always realize we are unlimited? In addition, if all is essentially one, no real difference exists between good and evil. With no legitimate distinction between good and evil, New Age religious activity becomes an exercise in futility. What you do or don't do doesn't matter at all! Finally, New Age pantheism stands in sharp contrast to the biblical doctrine of creation. Genesis 1 tells us that, in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. God is not the same as His creation, but is utterly distinct from it as the Creator. Our place is not to ascend to His throne, but to bow down before it.
Many years ago, all of my teachers seemed to think Mona Lisa was a man in drag. Not only that, they all picked up on a connection between Shirley MacLaine and the Mona Lisa. It was very easy, then, to assume that MacLaine was the reincarnation of Leonardo da Vinci's pupil Gian Giacomo Caprotti (Salai).
However, the full story turns out to be a little more complicated.
