The Magus talks about Eyes Wide Shut
This is a selection from the papers and journals my old college roommate left me. I haven't proofread or corrected the spelling of grammar. I've lost track of him and haven't heard from him in about several years. I do not know by what means he arrived at the gematria numbers he refers to in the essay.
He never called himself 'The Magus', I dubbed him that.In our discussions, he would cover a variety of topics. We talked a lot about the films of Stanley Kubrick and the initiatory nature of Barry Lyndon.The Magus was convinced that Kubrick had Kabbilistic training and was familiar withGematria.He never met Kubrick but told me with conviction, “All of Kubrick's films are somewhatautobiographical, progressing to the almost completely autobiographical Eyes Wide Shut, but notin the event sense, but in the allegorical sense. ““Even Lolita?”. I asked.“In a sense, yes.”His favorite Kubrick film was Eyes Wide Shut. We talked extensively about the 'orgy' in themansion. I asked him for his take on it.His response was in his typical stream of consciousness style.
The scene represents Kubrick's exposure to an occult group
Kubrick did 'work' for the group
Kubrick got a sense of their true nature
To the end of his days he was terrified of this groupI asked the Magus if he was referring to Scientology. He laughed and said there were definitereferences to that religion in the film but the group he referred to was not publicly known andwas ancient.I asked him for the name and he said it's in the film, even though it was edited after Kubrick'sdeath. They did not recognize it.I started to do some research on my own. I came across an article in 'Secret and Suppressed', a book edited by the late conspiracy writer Jim Keith.
