The Magi

I find no real fault in Constantine's inclusion or plagiarization of earlier and other systems of thought or their symbology into Roman Empire social engineering. The problem I see is the nature of the knowledge that they sought to prevent average people from gaining. Knowledge is power and knowledge in the hands of the few is a corrupting power. They have used mind-fogging projections to enslave and make people live in fear of demons and other constructs.

"Among the most famous-and fiercest-of the laws that Moses is shown to bring down from Mt. Sinai are the ones that criminalize the practice of magic. 'There shall not be found among you a soothsayer, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer,' decrees Moses. 'Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.' (From Biblio: Deut 18: 10; Exod. 22: 18.) Magic working is condemned with equal fervor in the Christian Bible, where it is explicitly kinked with all the other outrages of paganism: 'The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, {Yes, and the Catholics had more idols than the pagan pantheon especially when you include the saints along with 'Laddio, Daddio and Spook'.} and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.' (From Biblio: Rev. 21: 8.)

Ironically, an intriguing and illuminating clue to the function of sorcery in the pagan world is buried away in one of the most beloved passages of the Christian Bible. 'Three wise men' come in search of the newborn Jesus, or so goes the conventional English translation of Matthew 2: 1-2, 'for we have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him.' The 'wise men' are plainly called 'magi' in the Greek text, the plural form of 'magus,' a word that was used among the pagans of Babylonia and Persia to identify seers, soothsayers and sorcerers. 'Magus' is the root of 'magic,' and so we might more accurately call the men who followed a star to Bethlehem the three magicians.

'Magus' came to be used in Jewish and Christian circles as a derogatory term to describe someone who trafficked in black magic; a sorcerer, a deceiver, even a poisoner. But the original meaning of the word in the pagan world was honorable and even exalted?" (1)

Then there are the constant proclamations that various 'experts' make about ESP. Stanford Research Institute included the inventor of the laser and many fine scientists that these so-called 'experts' are seldom able to evaluate or as debunkers are paid to marginalize. Russell Targ's book Limitless Mind including a foreword by Jean Houston is a great book for the truly open-minded individual. Targ's book - which is the study of consciousness and the ethereal Matrix at a high scientific level says: "...forced-choice ESP tests are an inefficient way to elicit psi functioning: they always have an additional burden of boredom and mental noise (AOL). In the above studies, the experimenters, on average, had to carry out 3,600 trials to achieve a statistically significant result. With the free-response type of experiment, such as remote viewing, we typically have to do only six to nine trials." (2) Does it not make sense to 'observe' all the avenues for wisdom that we are blessed with?
