We left off in the last entry saying “to direct the forces of the Great Magical Agent to their proper location, one would need to place a design over the receiving end to establish occult connection.” What better design to choose than the “time-honored [pentagram] symbol” Hall spoke of, which “signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent”? But wait… We already have that very symbol, stationed in Washington, DC, as a receptacle. And it’s left open on Rhode Island Avenue, just as Hall discussed, for the “footprint of the Devil.”
Let’s see what else Waite has to say about the Great Magical Agent:
This force was known to the ancients; it consists of a universal agent having equilibrium for its supreme law, while its direction depends immediately on the Great Arcanum of transcendent magic. By the direction of this agent we can change the very order of the seasons, produce in the night the phenomena of day, correspond instantaneously from one end of the earth to the other, discern, like Apollonius, what is taking place at the Antipodes, heal or hurt at a distance, and endow human speech with a universal reverberation and success. The Gnostics represented it as the burning body of the Holy Ghost, and this it was which was adored in the secret rites of the Sabbath or the Temple under the symbolic figure of Baphomet [the pentagram], or of the Androgyne Goat of Mendes [again, the pentagram].
This ambient and all-penetrating fluid, this ray detached from the sun’s splendour, and fixed by the weight of the atmosphere and by the power of central attraction, this body of the Holy Ghost, which we call the Astral Light and the Universal Agent, this electro-magnetic ether, this vital and illuminous caloric, is represented on ancient monuments by the girdle of Isis.[i]
Wait, what? Isis? There are ancient monuments of Isis that represent the power of this Great Magical Agent? The same Isis who impregnated herself upon her dead husband’s corpse through sex magic?
Oh, but that it would stop at only “ancient” monuments and memorials… Regrettably, however, there is more to Isis than her commemoration through archaic Egyptian effigies. I’m sure by now that many readers have heard about the obelisk/dome alignment just outside the Whitehouse… But again, for those of you who are just joining the discussion, let us consider Isis/Osiris/Horus and the magnetic pull of the Great Magical Agent toward our capital’s “footprint of the Devil” pentagram.
The Great Magical Agent as a Means of Impregnation
When touring Washington, DC, or the Vatican, visitors are generally unaware of what it is they’re looking at. Right there, displayed in front of any and all, is an ancient, talismanic diagram revolving around Isis, Osiris, and Horus, and this diagram includes the “magical” functions to bring these deities out from where they currently reside.
Similarly, in St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican’s esteemed courtyard, there is an oval-shaped ground design with lines tracing a cross with an obelisk at the center. The red granite obelisk, which stands forty meters tall, was carved by the Egyptians in the thirteenth century BC. In AD 37—only a few years after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ—Roman Emperor Caligula had the structure moved to the central spina of the Circus Gai et Neronis (“Circus of Nero” and frequently now “Circus of Caligula”). In 1586, Pope Sixtus V ordered the engineer and architect Domenico Fontana to once again uproot and transport the obelisk to its current location at the Vatican. The task took over four months, and utilized nine hundred laborers, one hundred forty horses, and seventy winches.
An aerial shot of this attraction shows what is known as a “Sun Wheel,” with the varying lines forming “rays” that travel out from the center, wherein lies the obelisk—the placement of which in relation to the sun design is no accident. And note that although the line patterns are different, there is a similar design around the Washington Monument. It’s clearly a sun-shaped layout, but instead of that “power-going-out” style, it has a “power-going-in” archetypal eclipse or lens-flare style. Due to the intentional similarity of these structured arrangements, the US has been referred to as the “Mirror Vatican.” Our forefathers initially named our capital city “Rome.”

COMING IN ONE WEEK! TOM HORN’S MOST IMPORTANT WORK EVER!
The word “obelisk,” when researched, typically leads to dead ends, save for a description of what it looks like and how it’s built. In fact, it wasn’t until the early 1900s that the symbolism behind the obelisk was more accessible to the modern, public world thanks to the exposure by the Encyclopedia Americana Corporation (and others). According to their findings (written in 1919):
The Obelisk represents the Sun. The ancient Egyptians were sun-worshippers: they regarded the great luminary as the creator of the universe, the maker of all gods above and below, and even as the author of himself. The sun as Ra, the great god of the Egyptians, was represented upon monuments by the solar disc. In time several other names and attributes were applied to him. The rising sun was called Har-em-khu, “Horus on the horizon.” During his daily course he was Ra, “the life-giver,” representing day, light, etc. The setting sun, the symbol of night, darkness, and death, was worshipped as Tum or Temu. When the number of deities in the Egyptian pantheon multiplied, Ra appeared upon the monuments and in the papyri under different forms and names, and is represented alike by animate and inanimate objects. The two most striking and characteristic monuments which represented him on earth were the obelisk and the pyramid. The obelisk, symbolical of light and life, represented his daily course; the pyramid, symbolical of darkness and death, the setting sun.
Ra was praised as “the Double Obelisk” and the “Double Sphinx” deity…. The double sphinx is the symbol of his early rising, and is called Har-em-khu, and according to the “Book of Dead” (q.v.) is the symbol of resurrection. The obelisk is the technical figure of one ray or pencil of light emanating from the sun.
The material chosen for the obelisk was generally red granite, or syenite—a few, however, being of hard sandstone. The former was procured from the granite quarries at Syene (the modern Assouan). Red granite, some Egyptologists think, was chosen for two reasons: First, as being the most durable material, fitly representing the eternal sun. Secondly, on account of its red hue, suggesting the color of the solar disc at his rising and setting.
There were many obelisks throughout Egypt, but An, the city of the Sun (Heb., On; Greek, Heliopolis, the Beth-shemcsh of the Bible), was the centre of sun worship and undoubtedly contained several obelisks [including the one now standing in the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square].[ii]
In addition to the obelisk’s association with being at the center of sun worship is the direct correlation of its shape to that of the male reproductive organ. The origin of the word “obelisk,” as far back as most etymology dictionaries can trace, is the Greek obelischos, “small spit, obelisk, leg of a compass,” which is diminutive of obelos, “pointed pillar, needle.”[iii] This explanation, however, is limited by a modernized description of its shape alone, and only dates back to (at the very earliest) the first Greeks circa 1900–1600 BC. The Greeks who assigned the sound of o-bel-isk to their developing language would have had a reason to name this pillar by the meaning the early inhabitants of that culture had assigned to it.
It is a well-known fact that “the original Egyptian obelisks were quite seriously conceived as phalli.”[iv] In fact, occult researcher/writer Charles Berger takes it one step further when he states, “All pillars or columns [in ancient cultures] originally had a phallic significance, and were therefore considered sacred.”[v]
For some, the following explanation of etymology will be obvious, but I have observed in my experience that many readers don’t truly consider etymology, and many others don’t even know what it is. For this reason, I will explain the process.
Etymology is the study of how a word was originally formed. The word “Internet,” as one example, is a modern word. There is no ancient word belonging to what we today know as the World Wide Web because it didn’t exist in the ancient world. When we say “Internet,” people know we are describing “a vast computer network linking smaller computer networks worldwide…[through the use of] the same set of communications protocols,”[vi] or more simply, that thing we log on to over the computer at night to check e-mail. So, when we say “Internet,” everyone knows what we’re describing and what the word means in the same way many know that an obelisk is a “pointed pillar.” However, the word “Internet” is a compound word made up of: 1) the prefix “inter-,” meaning “‘between,’ ‘among,’ ‘in the midst of,’ ‘mutually,’ ‘reciprocally,’ ‘together,’ [and] ‘during,’”[vii] and 2) “net(work),” meaning “a netlike combination of filaments, lines, veins, passages, or the like.”[viii] Our culture has taken one prefix that means mutual, active cooperation between two or more sources and combined it with a word that describes a linking-up of pathways. This is how etymology works.
Fortunately, “Internet” is such a young word that we have no problem locating the etymological origins of it; unfortunately, “obelisk” is such an ancient word that many have a hard time locating the etymological origins of it. By the time “Internet” was a word, we had established worldwide communication, so the word is the same in many foreign languages, despite slight variations of accent marks, dialect, pronunciation, and so on, and generally everyone is capable of understanding the prefix “inter-” alongside the noun “net” because they are words our modern world is familiar with. When “obelisk” was formed as a word, there was limited communication between one region and another, so one has to look back to that one specific region of the earliest of languages to figure out what “o” and “bel” and “isk” would mean to them when put together.
Herodotus, the Greek traveler, is largely attributed as the writer who named the object as he documented the cultures he visited and the structures he observed. As such, he would have had the opportunity to look up at an edifice and call it by what it meant to the people of those lands but within his own language. In Greek, o is a prefix that frequently associates with “seed,” bel means “lord” or “master,” and isk is a suffix meaning “small.” So the story goes that Herodotus was wandering about the civilizations of the ancient world, had prior familiarity with the concept that the structure was phallic to the original Egyptian carvers, and called it, essentially, “a smaller representation of the master’s.” If the o did mean to Herodotus (if he is, in fact, the coiner of the word) what it meant in other words with o as a prefix associating with “seed,” then we arrive at: “a smaller representation of the master’s seed [and by extension, his male reproductive organ].”
Which “master” would this refer to? That’s where we get into the simpler etymology of the word bel to the first Greeks. “Belzebub” is Old English, based on Greek, which came from the original Hebrew for the Philistine god worshipped at Ekron, “ba’al-z’bub” (Hebrew; 2 Kings 1:2) and the Babylonian “sun god” or Baal, the “lord of the flies” when used by itself. Today, Christians have heard the name “Baalzebub” (more often “Beelzebub”) and hear it as another name for Satan, but they very rarely understand that, to the ancients, “Baal” was a prefix/title the Hebrews assigned to the foreign little-g “gods” that were worshipped by neighboring territories. (Consider as examples Baal-berith, who was the “the covenant lord” of the Shechemites and Baal-peor, who was the “lord of the opening” over the Moabites and Midianites.) This renders our previous conclusion to read “a smaller representation of Baal’s seed,” or, more truncated, “the shaft of Baal.”
From Cathy Burns’ Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, we read:
The obelisk is a long pointed four-sided shaft, the uppermost portion of which forms a pyramid. The word “obelisk” literally means “Baal’s Shaft” or Baal’s organ of reproduction. This should be especially shocking when we realize that we have a gigantic obelisk in our nation’s capital known as the Washington Monument.[ix]
(To remind the reader of at least one thing Baal meant to the Egyptians, as well as to earlier chapters in this book, where cannibalism was connected to the arrival of giants and/or those cultures that worshipped the demon gods of the giants that migrated across the ancient world including the Americas: Cahna-Bal means “priest of Baal.” It is from this that we derive the English word “cannibal,” a person who consumes the flesh and blood of another human, based on the same rituals the priests of Baal carried out in honor of their god. Baal was highly associated with cannibalism in Jeremiah 19. Note that through the Roman Catholic doctrine of the Eucharist, it is believed that consumption of bread and wine at communion is to partake of the actual, literal flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. I direct no personal attack upon those who are sincerely visiting the Lord’s Table to draw closer to Him within the Catholic faith. However, many reputable Christian scholars have pointed out that the Catholic Eucharist is a reenactment of the ritualistic flesh-eating by the Baal priests, and I doubt many sincere Catholics are aware of this.)
So far, we have the Sun Wheel at the Vatican and the “eclipse” or “lens flare” sun pattern at the Washington Monument to signify sun worship—both with a structure that meant “Baal’s phallus” at the center. Now let’s consider the shape and location of the domes.
Ancient pagan religions viewed an altar as symbolic of the female body. The Egyptian and Babylonian temples were built with strategic placement so that the shrine and the entrance of the temple faced in the same direction of the sun’s rising in summer. On one day per year, the sun would hover directly above the erect obelisk (“charging it,” so to speak), and as the sun went down, the shadow of the obelisk stretched along the courtyard and into the entrance of the temple and forward into the “dome.” If the place of worship was designed as symbolic of the female body, and the dome is built in the shape of a pregnant belly, then it doesn’t take rocket science to see that this was a representative “impregnating” of Baal’s seed directly into the temple of the people.
The primeval concept, then, was designed in antiquity for the express purpose of regeneration, resurrection, and apotheosis, for deity incarnation from the underworld to earth’s surface through union of the respective figures—the dome (ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis) and the obelisk (ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Baal—and Osiris—which we will discuss shortly).
The question should then be asked: Why do the world’s most powerful government on earth (the US) and the world’s most politically influential Church on earth (with headquarters at the Vatican) have these symbolic impregnation schematics built upon their ground, and what are they expecting this to accomplish?
Digging a little deeper into the theology behind all of this, one should remember that both the apostle Paul’s writings and the book of Revelation pointed to the eschatological marriage between the political and religious authorities (the Antichrist and the False Prophet) at the return of Osiris/Apollo.
According to the official building records of both locations, the dome/obelisk design was adapted from the Roman Pantheon, which was the circular, domed rotunda “dedicated to all gods,” and directed by Thomas Jefferson. The US Capitol building is also historically based on pagan Masonic temple themes. Jefferson wrote a letter to the architect behind the project, Benjamin LaTrobe, referring to the design as “the first temple dedicated to…embellishing with Athenian taste the course of a nation looking far beyond the range of Athenian destinies.”[x] The “Athenian” empire was first known as “Osiria,” the kingdom of Osiris. In 1833, Massachusetts Representative Rufus Choate agreed with Jefferson’s esoteric affiliation, writing, “We have built no national temples but the Capitol.”[xi] William Henry and Mark Gray, in their book, Freedom’s Gate: Lost Symbols in the U.S. Capitol, add that, “The U.S. Capitol has numerous architectural and other features that unquestionably identify it with ancient temples.”[xii] After listing various features to make their case that the US Capitol building is a “religious temple”—including housing the image of a deified being, heavenly beings, gods, symbols, inscriptions, sacred geometry, columns, prayers, and orientation to the sun—they conclude:
The designers of the city of Washington DC oriented it to the Sun—especially the rising Sun on June 21 and December 21. The measurements for this orientation were made from the location of the center of the Dome of the U.S. Capitol, rendering it a “solar temple.” Its alignment and encoded numerology point to the Sun as well as the stars. A golden circle on the Rotunda story and a white star in the Crypt marks this spot.… It is clear that the builders viewed the Capitol as America’s sole temple: a solemn…Solar Temple to be exact.[xiii]
Prophetic and supernatural alchemy. Again, this notion sounds sensational. However, the rabbit trail of proofs continues. Inasmuch as the obelisk was seen as the “shaft of Baal,” it was also the “shaft of Osiris.”
The legendary ritual for reincarnating Osiris (which, as we have discussed, is the ritual performed by Freemasons at each Master Mason ceremony) formed the core of Egyptian cosmology and was fantastically venerated on the most imposing scale throughout all of Egypt by towering obelisks (representing the phallus of Osiris) and domes (representing the pregnant belly of Isis) including at Karnak where the upright obelisks were “vitalized” or “stimulated” from the energy of the masturbatory sun-god Ra (mentioned prior) shining down upon them.
There is historical evidence that this elaborate myth and its rituals may have been based originally on real characters and events. We’ll get into that and why it is very important in the next entry…
