Third book in the Toltec Teaching Series. More technical lessons. It becomes clear at this point that Toltec teachings have off-planetary origin, as with Sufism and Hermeticism. (online)
Fourth book in the Toltec Teaching Series. Recaps the first three and fills in lots of blanks, then gets onto the “Sorcerer’s Explanation” which is pure Gnostic Truth wrapped in myth. Mares knows what he’s talking about. (online)

The interplay between Ahriman, Lucifer, and Christ — the three intelligences actively at work in our history. Helps overcome binary thinking, since this trinary model is closer to reality. Explains a lot about the way things are in the world.
Magical / occult training. Recommended for information purposes only. Some of the exercises are good, but others get too close to black magic. Has valuable information on mirror scrying (psychomanteum) and various types of thoughtforms including parasitic ones. Bardon was experienced in occult pathologies and useful advice for treating them can be gleaned from this book. (online)
Philosophical essays on esotericism inspired by the tarot deck. Good insights here and there, though quite intellectual with an unfortunate Catholic bias.
Introduction to Fourth Way philosophy. Focuses on man being asleep at the wheel and mechanical in his habits like a robot, and how to fight that. As the subtitle says, these are fragments of an unknown teaching: thus incomplete. What’s missing is the heart component. See Mouravieff for that. (online)
Supposedly based on the original teachings of which Fourth Way is just a collection of fragments. Main source is inner Eastern Orthodox, but probably traces back to Sufi and related groups. Something valuable on every page. Not a fan of his political views, but the esoteric stuff is spot on. Includes discussion on spiritless humans, called pre-Adamics in the book. (online only)
Brunton’s most accessible book. The core of what ancient traditions say about connecting with the Higher Self.

Meditation system that heightens consciousness through vipassana-like focus on all senses and surroundings.
Technique for shifting into a deep altered state of consciousness useful for esoteric development. Goes well with the Silva Method.
Classic channeling text with metaphysical advice for daily living. May be the first New Age book to introduce concept of timelines and probable futures.
Fourteen years of channeled transmissions from higher dimensional light beings. Done through Ouija board, thus concise in their responses. Despite corruption, I’d say the core cosmology concerning the densities, and the tactical advice concerning negative forces, is valid because it completely matches my experience and research to date. Goes well with the Ra Material / Law of One. (online only)
Part of same paradigm bundle as the Cassiopaean Transcripts and Ra Material, but written in a more colloquial and empowering style. Greater emphasis on why some of us are here in relation to the upcoming Shift. Good balance between conspiracy and spirituality. (online)
Channeling done in early 1980s, of quality and profundity greater than anything before and possibly after. Meshes well with the Cassiopaean Transcripts and Bringers of the Dawn, though in comparison is more technical and dense. (online)
Second book in the Ra Material / Law of One series. The series explains the concepts of STS and STO to a very fine degree, and likewise with the densities. (online)
Third book in the Ra Material / Law of One series. There are also books IV and V but I don’t consider them as important or monumental as the first three. (online)
Transcripts of sessions with hypnotized subjects taken so deep that other consciousnesses come through. The quality of information that comes through is hit or miss, but some of the subjects are completely fascinating and plausible.
Further hypnosis research and explorations of topics such as past lives, alien lives, parallel timelines, future post-apocalyptic timelines, and so on.
Most recent book by Cannon on her hypnosis work. Fascinating as always. These three volumes are great as mind-stretchers, to help you consider possibilities not previously imagined about what could be going on.
Introduction to alien abductions with several case studies. Jacobs learned hypnosis from Hopkins and refined the technique.
The conclusion of Jacobs’ research into alien abductions, that Greys are breeding hybrids to replace us. Likely true, but Jacobs then scoffs at the idea of military involvement in abductions, which is undoubtedly the case since abductees have seen them work side by side with aliens. (online)
Men in Black, Nordic aliens, robotoids, and flying humanoids converge upon a small town in West Virginia, all leading up to the collapse of a bridge that killed dozens of the same witnesses who reported these sightings. Keel was in the middle of it all, and concludes they are ultraterrestrial beings. (online)
Second book by Andrews on aliens. In the first, he was warm to them. But after doing more research realized that something was amiss. This book takes a stance of discernment and includes lots of underground information supporting such a stance. Decent survey of the fringier side of alienology.
Unusual book because it gets into alien entity attachments, that is aliens in an etheric state, or using etheric gadgetry and cords, to connect to human targets to influence and feed off them.
Allegedly a notebook smuggled out by an underground base scientist. More likely a reconstruction made from various tidbits of inside information bundled in the semblance of such a report. Either way, and cartoonish drawings aside, info is fascinating especially regarding mind control, implants, and black ops craft capabilities. (online only)
First book by Turner on her own abduction experiences and its negative impacts on her life. (online only)
Turner’s most accessible and concise work. Includes several case studies and compares them. Exposes the nasty side of the alien presence, including cloning and replacement of humans. The kind of book aliens and military abductors would rather you not read. (online only)
Case study on one abductee and his horrible experiences with Reptilian and other negative alien beings. Tough read due to the disturbing nature of the experiences. Not long after this book was published, Turner succumbed to a sudden and very aggressive form of breast cancer, after being warned by aliens to discontinue her research. (online only)
Personal experiences, observations and theories into the abduction / mind control phenomenon. Practical and empowering approach toward the MILAB subject that gets into spiritual / hyper-D countermeasures. For anyone who suspects they might be abductees. (online)
Messages transmitted by off-planetary observers warning of an impending alien deception event. Discusses hostile aliens acting under the guise of benevolence to win over a foolish and desperate planet. Proposes a gnostic type of inner Knowledge as the solution to seeing through such deception. (online)
Second set of messages transmitted by positive aliens. Summers seems to interject his own frustration at the prevalence of naivete in the UFO, abductee, contactee regarding the true motives of certain alien groups. One of the few books that addresses the issue of negative aliens pretending to be positive.
Third set of messages transmitted by positive aliens.
1950s contactee of positive Nordics. What he says about them may be skewed or embellished, but nonetheless much of it correlates with alienology research coming decades later. Rare for its level of sincerity and spiritual outlook. (online only)
A terminally ill man tells Angelucci of his own encounters with the same beings. Even if entirely fictional, this book is unrivaled in imparting a mood of spiritual chivalry and grandeur. (online only)
History book that traces alien manipulation of human affairs from ancient to modern times. More balanced and objective than Sitchin. Concludes that earth is under the control of a negative custodial alien race left to manage the planet until their peers return.
Well-researched history of 20th century Ufology covering 1941-1973, with emphasis on government and military reports, witnesses, and political agendas. This is a great book for anyone needing more documentation and objective analysis regarding the existence of aliens.
Continuation of the first volume, covering Ufology from 1973 to 1991.
Alien manipulation of human love relationships. Important because it shows how alien mind programming and etheric energy manipulation are used to bring together and break up selected abductees toward inducing emotional anguish, for purposes of energy harvesting. Also gets into spiritual warfare.
Psychic vampirism, demonic shadowing, relationship interference and manipulated psychic connections. Practical tools for recognizing, dealing with, and healing from traumatic “soul mate” connections. I get emails all the time from people who are going through such ordeals. This book lays out numerous examples of what’s really going on out there.
Ufology interpreted from the viewpoint of Sufism and the Perennial Tradition. Unique perspective, benefitting from the advantages of traditional esoteric knowledge, though sometimes suffering from the antiquation of same. (online)
Reflective essays on the nature of ephemeral non-humans that seem to be living on earth as a parallel civilization hidden from public awareness. Tonnies died suddenly right before the book went to publishing. This essay compliments John Keel’s work and the Comte de Gabalis.
Series of discourses by a Rosicrucian, thought to be St Germain or Francis Bacon. Published in 1670, explains the practice among Rosicrucians of marrying themselves to non-human beings. Seems to put parasitic thought-forms and humanoid aliens under the same banner. This print edition is badly littered with typos, but cheaper and slimmer than other editions. (online)
Keel’s magnum opus summarizing mountains of investigations and reports into the UFO and alien phenomenon. Published before the advent of alien abduction research. Covers the hyper-D and trickster aspects of the alien presence. (Hardcopy)
Makes a solid case, based on evidence from thousands of reports, that aliens ships use time distortion technology and may actually be time travelers.
Scholarly work on what Islamic texts have said concerning the Jinn.
Gets into the main alien types and what can be ascertained from abduction and contactee accounts. Confirms a lot of what I wrote in 2008’s Discerning Alien Disinformation.
Covers orgonomy, psionics, invisible plasmoid lifeforms, negative hyper-D beings, and Steiner philosophy. Very original and fascinating book with lots of information. The author is an experienced weather engineer as well.
All-in-One conspiracy tome, great for anyone new to the fringe.
Icke’s latest, gets into the moon matrix theory. Fits the Gnosis / Hyperhistory category as well because it discusses how the moon is a broadcast and anchor point for our fallen matrix reality.
Defense from a magical, ritualistic, and occult perspective. More anecdotal than practical, but shows the kind of occult pathologies that occur. Also mentions humans who are piloted by elemental energies instead of human consciousness. (online)
Skip the first third of this book, the rest deals with matrix reality and various positive and negative forces involved, including the “god’s gladiators” themselves who have traits of 4D STO beings.
Her first book was a mainstream New Age hit, but later through pendulum dowsing she stumbled upon a dark conspiracy of nonphysical manipulators who feed off our energies and influence our minds. This book discusses her findings and how to nullify any contracts unknowingly made with such beings. She published one more book after this before succumbing to cancer.
Small book with sage advice on how to deal with the NWO through metaphysical means. I prefer splitting it 50/50 between physical and metaphysical tactics and not place all eggs in one basket, but still worth a read. (online)
Defense from an experiential and practical perspective. Bruce is an experienced astral projector with a good grasp of astral and etheric phenomena. He provides methods for removing negative entity infestations.
Exposé on the deceptive parasitic entities behind a lot of channeling and “spirit guide” phenomena. Fisher experienced first hand how these entities operate. The final chapters give a great analysis on their nature.
Great exposition on the Matrix Control System from its 3D to 4D aspects. Describes the spiritual problem and spiritual solution. I wrote the foreword.
For fans of Fringe Knowledge and Icke’s books, or anyone needing a good introduction to “the situation” in our world.
Comprehensive all-around book on the Grail and Ark, tracing that technology from Atlantis to Egypt, Greece, France, and more surprising locations. I disagree that the Grail stone was just an electrical transducer, but this book still pulls together a lot of clues.
The best medieval Grail story. Permeated with Gnostic / Cathar / pagan ideology despite an obligatory Catholic gloss. Story of a sheltered boy who becomes a knight and goes through many trials before becoming Grail King. Explains origins of the Grail as a stone brought to earth by neutral angels.
Historical and Anthroposophical analysis of Parzival by one of Rudolf Steiner’s disciples. Traces the historical events of Parzival to the ninth century A.D. Not a crucial book to read, but does provide historical context for the tale and explains the inner meaning of various passages.
Reference book for recurring symbols in esoteric and indo-aryan traditions, particular those referring the axis mundi – polar symbols. Relates to the Grail’s function as our reality’s lynchpin.
Covers Nordic, Persian, Greek, and Indian myths seemingly alluding the precession of the equinoxes, but really I think it relates to hyper-D technology and a grand cataclysm that corrupted our timeline. All these myths have indo-aryan (read: nordic alien / cryptoterrestrial) origins. (online).
Very good book on the Grail, at least in its conciseness and depth of insight. Covers the various origins of Grail legends including Celtic myth, summarizes the traits of the Grail, and tries to explain the spiritual preparation involved. Comes from a traditional/esoteric perspective.
Compilation of research into the technology and occult methods employed by the real Rosicrucians. That is, a secret network of human initiates of high spiritual caliber who are guided by alien and divine intelligences. Thoroughly documented with some astounding revelations.
Core text of medieval alchemy and hermeticism, written during the time of Hellenic Greece. Discourses by a higher being on the nature of consciousness, cosmology, and spirit. Compare to Philip K. Dick’s Exegesis writings. (online)
History of the Cathars and their persecution by the Catholic Church, the Grail, and Gnostic philosophy. Written in 1920s by German researcher who was later employed by Nazis and ended his own life after growing disaffected. Rahn was not just an academic on the outside, but one who immersed himself in Cathar and Gnostic outlook.
Travel journal by Rahn as he goes around Europe and Iceland in his hunt for the Grail. For each town he philosophizes and shares pertinent local legends. He rants quite a bit against the Catholic Church and sides with Lucifer as a light bringer. One antisemitic passage was thought to have been added by a Nazi editor of the book. Other than that, this book really captures a teutonic/pagan kind of spirit and is valuable in Grail research.
Easy to read and informative introduction to the Grail subject. The author is affiliated with modern fraternal societies and takes their viewpoint. He references Laurence Gardiner whose conclusions I disagree with, but points to an alien origin for the Grail at the end and makes plenty of original connections along the way.
By knowing its true origins and potential transcendent powers, mankind can fulfill its destiny. Uses history, esoteric tradition, and consciousness research to show what that destiny could be.
Classic history of Nazi occultism, from an occult rather than bland academic perspective. I think something other than the Spear of Longinus was the root of Hitler’s rise and fall, but this book still captures the essence of the occult drama behind it all.
Compendium of PKD’s mystical writings. He was a true modern Gnostic, given a revelation about our matrix reality by some higher intelligence. Gets into competing timelines, the control system, and time travel. Important reading for anyone into my Gnosis Series.
History of earth pole shifts, including locations of the previous poles. Has bearing on ancient civilizations and our own future. For instance, former location in Alaska from 80,000 years ago correlates with Indo-Aryans building sacred sites on a Great Circle centered on that pole. Also see the last chapter of Dwellings of the Philosophers by Fulcanelli.
Dense work on the history of the esoteric mystery schools and the Pelasgian / Cabiri who gave rise to them. The author was a scholar and Freemason of the early 1900s who had access to a lot of hidden knowledge.
Essays on cosmology, metaphysics, thoughtforms and the etheric plane, and our world being a lower realm of illusion that mimics a higher truer realm beyond this dimension.
Indispensable book with veiled explanations on how to make the Stone, shuffled out of sequence and interspersed throughout discussions on architecture. The first part (Book One) is explains what Alchemy truly is; everyone should read it. The rest is mainly for those interested in how it was done by someone who succeeded in it. (online or pdf and epub)
Fulcanelli’s first book, where he explains the alchemical meaning of the symbolic stonework found in Gothic cathedrals. Short, dense, and concise but not nearly as accessible or explanatory as Dwellings of the Philosophers, rather more a prequel and companion to the latter.
Famous text published in 1832. Lauded by Fulcanelli. The catch is that the process explained by Cyliani starts with the prepared matter, not the raw subject from the mine. The lengthy preparation step is left out and better described in other texts.
An obscure manuscript published in Leipzig, 1782, referenced by Cyliani. Key info on the technique for breaking down the raw starting material, and the proper order of the various phases. Never before translated into English. I was the editor and book designer for this edition. (online)
Also by the author of Hermes Trismegistus Old Natural path. Letters allegedly written by members of the 18th century Golden and Rosicrucian Order. The letters explain an alternate method for preparing the matter and extracting from it the mercury and sulfur. Rare text, and the only one I know that openly names the raw mineral subject. (online)
One of Fulcanelli’s most closely guarded sources. Very good explanation of what to do with the matter/subject, how to produce the Mercury salt, how to perform the Eagles, take the nascent Stone through the various Reigns, and how to multiply it and direct it toward the metal kingdom. Likely a suppressed work due to it being too open.
If you know nothing about orgone energy, this is the book for you. Includes instructions and plans for making your own orgone accumulators.
Comprehensive compilation on various antigravity technologies, ranging from Brown to Tesla, Podkletnov, and others.
Classic book on how quantum theory explains the consciousness-reality interaction, and how reality is therefore responsive to our thoughts. Also does a great job of explaining the various components of consciousness and how they relate to quantum theory.
Easy book on chaos theory, nonlinear systems, solitons, and other aspects of physics close to where life and consciousness begins. Can change the way you view the world.
A complete undergraduate course in physics, from old-time Newton to electromagnetism, atomic physics, and quantum physics.
Great book on true scalar physics. Ensle extended the Maxwell Equation to incorporate longitudinal waves and scalar fields, and applies this to various physics problems to solve long standing mysteries.
Quixotic effort to explain quantum physics with diagrams and metaphors instead of math. May be over the head of many a layman but this is what modern quantum physics looks like behind the math. Does a good job of explaining quantum phase and the relation between momentum and energy.
Twelve years after his mother’s disappearance, Zahn is swept up into an adventure to the galactic core, encountering a stunning pilot, 5th-density creatures of light, and an ancient chthonic evil, bent on consuming every star in the galaxy by tearing the fabric of spacetime itself. Only the Tulari, a stone that can heal these fissures, offers any hope. Inspired by the Law of One material, this sci-fi adventure is the 1st book in the Epic of Aravinda series.
