William Cooper's Mystery Babylon: Part 26 - America's Assignment, Part III(audio link: http://www.remnantradio.org/Archives/articles/William%20Cooper/Mystery%20Babylon/audio/mystery%20babylon%2026.mp3)transcribed by wakingup72 @ http://www.waronyou.com/forums**FINAL TRANSCRIPTION**=====================================================Welcome, across America and around the world, to the most unusual hour you willever hear. This is the only hour that ever was, or ever will be. This is the most important hour in your entire life, for, during this hour, you will decide your future and, thus, our collective futures.I'm William Cooper, and this is the Hour of the Time.(opening music: unknown orchestral waltz)Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, we continue with [i]America's Assignment with Destiny[/i].You remember, we talked about the history of the religion in the Mystery Schoolof the ancient Aztecs, the Mayans and the other American Indians of the old Americas, before Europeans supposedly set foot upon the shores. As you will hear, it's entirely possible and, indeed, highly probable that, not only Europeans, butpeople from the Middle East and from the continent of Africa, set foot upon these shores long, long before Columbus ever dreamed...[i]ever dreamed[/i] of reaching India by sailing toward the west. In fact, if you've been listening closely to the previous episodes of [i]America's Assignment with Destiny[/i], you may have already understood that the Indians were practicing almost exactly the same Mystery Religion that was present in the Middle East and in Egypt long, long before the birth of Christ.[reading from [i]America's Assignment with Destiny[/i], written by Manly P. Hall]:(start of quote)=====================================================Many tribes, especially the Plains Indians, believed that thunder and lightningwere caused by enormous birds -- the rumbling sounds in the sky accompanying storms were due to the flapping of their wings, and the flashes of light were caused by the opening and closing of their eyes. In some groups, only one thunderbirdwas recognized; in other tribes, there were several of various colors or a family of them. The appearance of the bird, or birds, is not definitely given; it might be similar to a large hawk, an eagle, or even a grouse. The thunderbird could use its wings as a bow to shoot arrows, and small meteors were believed to bethe heads of these arrows. On the Plains, thunderstorms were said to result froma contest between a thunderbird and a huge rattlesnake, or dragonlike monster.Persons struck by lightning, if they recovered, were accepted as sages or holy men, having received a very strong medicine from [this] experience.In some areas the thunderbird was closely associated with the religious Mysterie
 
s or Societies. Those who saw this creature in their vigils usually considered themselves as intended for a religious life. The myths and legends of the thunderbird are similar to the European and Asiatic accounts of the fabled phoenix, which [you're hearing an awful lot about it, even today. The phoenix] nested in flames and symbolized initiation and adeptship. [And today, it symbolizes the New World Order, rising from the ashes of the Old -- death and rebirth, resurrection,reincarnation. All of these are the symbols, or symbolized by the phoenix.] Early drawings of the Great Seal of the United States indicate that the bird represented thereon was a phoenix rather than an eagle [that you see today]. Like theMexican coat of arms, which shows an eagle with a serpent in its claws, the American device is strongly reminiscent of a thunderbird. These creatures were alsosaid to inhabit a sky-world above the clouds, and served as messengers between mortals and the heavenly beings.Farther south the thunderbird symbol merged with the quetzal and the serpent feathered with quetzal plumes. The quetzal was identical in meaning with the phoenix of Asia, North Africa, and the Near East. The feathered-serpent symbolism canbe traced back to the hooded Nagas, or serpent gods of India, and to the wingedserpents which occur in the writings and sculpturings of the [ancient] Egyptians.The serpent was the messenger and servant of the earth-mother because it dwelt below ground. For this reason rattlesnakes were released during the snake dances,in order that they might carry the petitions of the tribe to the mother who dwelt below. Birds were also carriers of tidings, and as they flew upward they borewith them prayers to the Great Father who lived in the Sky-Lodge. The thunderbird was the most powerful and was the lord of flying things. and the feathered snake was symbolic of the mysteries of the upper and lower regions. Priestly Orders served this twofold cult, the secrets of which were revealed only by an internal mystical experience.[William Cooper: Now, remember, the ancient Egyptian religion? They had the mysteries of the upper and lower regions, and the "Priestly Orders served this twofold cult," also, the androgynous god.]...Brinton, describing various devices used by the Amerindian tribes to conservetheir religious secrets, says: "All these stratagems were intended to shroud with impenetrable secrecy the mysteries of the brotherhood. With the same motive,the priests formed societies of different grades of illumination, only to be entered by those willing to undergo trying ordeals whose secrets were not to be revealed under the severest penalties."[William Cooper: Now, anyone who's listened to our 26 episodes of the series onMystery Babylon, the Mystery Schools, will recognize the exact same religious philosophy that permeated first, the old Mediterranean world and northern Africa,and then through the episodes of the Crusades and the Templars was brought intoEurope, and persist to this day, all over the world.]"The Algonkins had three such grades...[Remember, the three degrees of initiation? Three degrees in six acts, or eighteen...6-6-6? The three grades of the Algonkins were] the [i]waubeno[/i], the [i]meda[/i], and the [i]jossakeed[/i], the last[, of course] being the highest. To this no white man was ever admitted. All tribes appear to have been controlled by these secret societies."[William Cooper: Just as our modern society is controlled by the Mysteries today.]Among the Amerindians, Secret Societies existed for the perpetuation and enlargement of the choicest knowledge of the tribe.
 
[William Cooper: Remember, the heart and soul of the Mysteries is illumination,the light, Lucifer. Lucifer, of course, is represented by the sun, which is thewisdom of the world. (laughs) It represents the intellect. Remember, the Gardenof Eden, the story that Lucifer, through his agent, Satan, enticed Eve, and thus, man, to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge and told them that they would not surely die, and that they would be as gods? Well, this is the promise. Andwith that gift of intellect that man received from Satan, indirectly from Lucifer, man himself will become god. This is the heart and soul of the Mystery Schools.]There were war associations, healing cults, and Fraternities concerned with thereligious Mysteries, the keeping of records, and the dramatization of myths. There were ethical societies, orders of mirth-makers, fire-walkers, and hunters, presided over by elders who had distinguishing regalia. Women frequently became leaders of these groups. Among the Pueblo Indians there were often a dozen or moreSocieties in one village. While their objectives were not always parallel, there was no friction [among] the memberships and they united in all common responsibilities The Indian was always a tolerant man on the subject of spiritual convictions. He never inquired as to the faith of his guest, but expected that every true believer would conduct himself in an honorable way. He respected the rites of strangers, and if he did not share in them or did not understand their meanings, he kept a respectful silence.The reference to the dramatization of myths suggests that a member of Indian tribes were practicing the same methods of presenting religious Mysteries that wereemployed by the Greeks and [the] Egyptians. Most Indian festivals emphasized songs and dances, but the songs were used principally to establish rhythms and thewords were of slight importance. Chants were a vital element in most healing ceremonies.Either the Western Hemisphere received a vital religious stimulus from early voyagers and travelers from distance parts or else the Indian himself by mystical experiences shared a common inspiration with the priestly castes of other nations. The psychologists would probably assume that the esoteric tradition originatedin the spiritual needs of the human being, regardless of his race or place of habitation.[William Cooper: But that does not fit any test of common sense. In fact, it's ludicrous.]The search for reality gradually brought into being specialized groups of intensive truth seekers. [And] these groups produced their own leaders, and such wisemen and women were acknowledged as divinely inspired, received spontaneous admiration and devotion, were obeyed for their superior endowments, and gradually became a priestly caste. [Now,] civilization enlarged the temporal state of the tribe, the religious Societies grew to become powerful institutions, as in CentralAmerica. While the tribes remained nomadic, the medicine men were less resplendent and impressive, but their functions were no less significant.These holy persons seldom took part in war, and frequently were distinguished bya costume combining elements of male and female attire.[William Cooper: And, remember, the god is an androgynous god: bi-polar, male/female, positive/negative, bad/good, divine and evil, all within the same. [sic] And this is the truth; this is the reality in all of the Mysteries.]This practice [of wearing male and female attire] has been common throughout thereligious world and has influenced the dress of pagan priests and Christian clergy alike. [For example, the Catholic priest...the Catholic bishop.] The androgynous human being, in whom there is a spiritual union of male and female attribut
