My great uncle, the namesake of my grandfather, JLW, on my father's side, was a member of the dark occult Brotherhood of Death: Skull and Bones, located only at Yale University. This link provides an amazingly documented story of Skull and Bones, Yale, and the families involved. It is quite fascinating. Here is Wikipedia's version. Those wanting to see and understand our family and our relationship to those Skull and Bones members can check out The Whitney Group's research.
Fascinated by the hullabaloo, I began doing some research into Masons in general. A dear friend of mine here in Denver is a Mason and his daughter is in Eastern Star and Job's Daughters. I knew that Freemasonry, in and of itself, probably is not "evil", but it contains knowledge and ways to access levels of consciousness which, when used for ill can and is used for mass mind-control.
Gratefully, I discovered that my grandfather was not a "Bonesman", but a Doctor of Psychiatry, who, with my grandmother, EGW, brought Jungian practice to San Francisco, CA., but who fell ill and died in mid-life. His uncle, James Lyman Whitney was my great uncle and was Librarian: born in Northampton, Mass., Nov. 28, 1835; graduated from Yale College in 1856; was chief of the catalogue department in the Yale library for many years and in that capacity edited the Ticknor catalogue of Spanish Literature and other similar publications. In 1899 he became librarian of the Boston Public Library. As tame as that sounds, he was initiated into the Skull and Bones as all members are through a series of rituals including the Killing of Care. Skull and Bones members also engage in acts of pedophilia when they go off to Deer Island for their retreats.
Still, I was intrigued that my great uncle was a member and that so many of our family continues to attend Yale. The aforementioned article states that all Yale presidents, since 1856 have been members of the satanic order or have had close associations to it.
Skull and Bones came into the public eye when it was discovered that George Bush Sr. and George Dubya, as well as John Kerry and Al Gore ALL are members... many political decisions are made in these secret societies with these elite members in high places. It is the goal of this secret society to ensure the employment of it's members in society.
The Skull and Bones symbol comes from the Master Mason Tracing Board. The Skull represents the "mind" and the bones represent the "will" - skull and bones means thought and action without care. On the Master Mason tracing board it is a warning about always needing compassion. The dark occultists are psychopaths who believe in "Killing the Care" - acting without compassion, because then you can do whatever you want to serve the egoic will. Number 322 refers to Genesis chapter 3 verse 22 regarding the "fall" of man: the Luciferian Initiation. I invite you all to look it up! Mark Passio discusses it here.
People these days like to sling around terms like “Freemason” and “Illuminati” and speak as if all Masons are sorcerers. Like tools, freemasonry, kaballah and tarot are occulted knowledge which is very powerful and can be used for good or evil. Because it has been “occulted” - or hidden – the knowledge had been used primarily for evil work, but could easily be used for good if it were known. Even the word “occult” sent shivers up my spine. I thought all occult knowledge was wrong and stayed away from it. Recently I learned that “occult” comes from the latin occultare which means “hidden”. So occult knowledge is hidden knowledge – neither good or bad necessarily – just hidden.
Further investigation shows that much occult symbolism is used regularly as corporate logos and even in mundane ways, to brainwash the public. Unfortunately, freemasonry and it's symbols goes back to the dawn of time so whether we want to "believe in it or not" the symbolism and ideas are a part of our collective unconscious and archetypes.
Freemasonry is simply a set of principles, traditions and allegory used to develop an understanding of and live within Natural Law. It can be used for good or for evil. Dark Masons want to use masonic teachings to live outside Natural Law and to avoid karma by using pawns to do their dirty work for them.
Freemasonry or Masonry is used by dark occultists, of which Skull and Bones are one group for use to gain power to control the world.*1
