Essentially, while the Kabbalah can be traced back to back to Babylon, it was not there that its initial doctrines were expressed in literary form. It was first espoused in ancient Greece. Though the Jews were allowed to return to Palestine by Cyrus the Great no evidence of Jewish literature makes its appearance until the third century a.d. Rather, the earliest elaboration of kabbalistic doctrines takes place in Greece, among the so-called philosophers, particularly Pythagoras & later Plato who has long been regarded as the godfather of this tradition.
The cult of Orpheus known as Orphism, became the basis of the philosophical cult developed by Pythagoras. Accounts of Pythagoras having journeyed to Babylon for his learning are extensive. Through his influence these ideas were then transmitted to Plato. Therefore, according to Momigliano, in Alien Wisdom, “It was Plato who made Persian wisdom thoroughly fashionable, though the exact place of Plato in the story is ambiguous & paradoxical.”
Actually, Plato’s position is not so ambiguous. Although scholars & Momigliano are merely troubled that it was evident that it was Plato, whom is otherwise considered the preeminent example of Greek rationality, was evidently immersed in occultic thought. Though Plato is regarded as the greatest philosopher of western civilization, he is far from deserving of that reputation & only achieved popular notoriety over the last two hundred and fifty years, through the influence of the Illuminati controlled press.
Throughout the centuries occultists have regarded Plato as the great founder of their agenda & even Jewish Cabalists regarded him as an exponent of their ideas. While the Kabbalah was gaining roots in Babylon it was Plato who first elaborated upon the principle of world dominion by formulating his vision for a totalitarian state which would be governed by the “chosen people”. Within antiquity, the reputation of Plato’s purported connection with the Magi was widespread. According to Aristobolus, a third century b.c. Jewish philosopher, Plato had access to translations of Jewish texts & therefore, “It is evident that Plato imitated our legislation & that he had investigated thoroughly each of the elements in it…for he was very learned, as was Pythagoras, whom transferred many of our doctrines & integrated them into his own beliefs.”
Eudoxus of Cnidus, who seems to have acted as head of the academy during Plato’s absence, travelled to Babylon & Egypt where he studied at Heliopolis, where he learned the so-called “priestly wisdom” & astrology. According to Pliny, Eudoxus “wished magic [the cult of the magi] to be recognized as the most noble & useful of the schools of philosophy.” In The Laws Plato proposed astrological ideas about which E.R. Dodds, whom is skeptical of the extent of magial influence upon Plato’s thought process, is willing to concede that, “…the proposals of the laws do seem to give the heavenly bodies a religious importance which they lacked in an ordinary Greek cult, though there may have been partial precedents in Pythagorean thought & usage. & in the Epinomis, which I am inclined to regard either as Plato’s own work or as put together by his Nachlass (unpublished works), we meet with something that is certainly Oriental & is frankly presented as such, the proposal for public worship of the planets.”
The Epinomis, which is either a work of Plato, or his pupil Phillip of Opus, is clearly influenced by the Magi. According to the Epinomis, “That science which makes men most wise“, is astrology. Astrology proffers man with the knowledge of numbers, in other words, numerology, without which man cannot attain to a knowledge of virtue. This knowledge, according to the author, belonged originally to the Egyptians & the Syrians, “From when the knowledge has reached to all countries, including our own, after having been tested by thousands of years & time without end.”
However, the great treatise of Kabbalistic thought within the Greek language is the Timaeus. Like the Epinomis, the Timaeus categorizes the purpose of life as to study Astrology. But, it is in the Republic that Plato articulates the need for a totalitarian state to be governed by philosopher kings, whom are to be instructed in this pseudo science. The Republic provided the basis for the modern fascist projects of the Illuminati some of these projects are as follows:
1. The elimination of marriage & the modern family,
2. Compulsory education which according to Plato compulsory schooling is to be implemented in order to separate children from their parents so that they can be indoctrinated into the ideals of the state, “They [philosopher kings] will begin by sending out into the country all the inhabitants of the city who are more than ten years old, & will take possession of their children, who will be unaffected by the habits of their parents; these they will train in their own habits & laws, I mean in the laws which we have given them.”
He was also the first to articulate the use of Eugenics by the state. According to Plato, “all these women shall be wives in common to all men & not one of them shall live privately with any man; the children too should be held in common so that no parent shall know which is his own offspring & no child shall know his parent.” In addition to this he says, “the best men must cohabit with the best women in as many case as possible & the worst with the worst in the fewest & that the offspring of the one must be reared & that of the other not if the flock is to be as perfect as possible.”
He also emphasized the employment of deceptive propaganda methods by the state. According to Plato, “Our rulers will find a considerable dose of falsehood & deceit necessary for the good of their subjects.”
More pernicious still is his prescription for infanticide, “The offspring of the inferior & any of those of the other sort who are born defective will be properly disposed of in secret so that no one will know what has become of them.”
A republic is only as strong as its people. Stay vigilant are this may be or tomorrow Your Fellow Traveller
