Lightbulb Society of the Elect

Karl von Eckhartshausen (1752-1803) was an 18th century German mystic who wrote extensively on esoteric topics. This work, The Cloud Upon the Sanctuary, is Christian mysticism veiled in hermetic code.. Eckhartshausen was briefly a member of the Bavarian Illuminati, but left for spiritual reasons.. He cryptically mentions a "society of the Elect" which has existed from the very beginning of time, "the invisible celestial Church".. He predicted that "it is the society whose members form a theocratic republic, which one day will be the Regent Mother of the whole World".. This book later influenced the Order of the Golden Dawn, and most notably, Aleister Crowley.-J.B. Hare ...

Von Eckartshausen was acquainted with Johann Georg Schröpfer, an early pioneer of phantasmagoria, and himself experimented with the use of magic lanterns to create "ghost projections" in front of an audience of four or 5 people.. He died in Munich at the age of 50..

There is no age more remarkable to the quiet observer than our own. Everywhere there is a fermentation in the minds of men; everywhere there is a battle between light and darkness, between exploded thought and living ideas, between powerless wills and living active force; in short everywhere is there war between animal man and growing spiritual man..It is said that we live in an age of light, but it would be truer to say that we are living in an age of twilight; here and there a luminous ray pierces through the mists of darkness, but does not light to full clearness either our reason or our hearts... them down.. Do not stop until they are found.. You do not know pain, you do not know fear.. You will taste man-flesh..I gave you the chance of aiding me willingly, but you have elected the way of pain.. The hour is later than you think..So you have Come here for information.. I have some for you...
