From the Youtube description: Evidence suggests that Alchemy might be far more than the precursor of chemistry or a pursuit for spiritual transformation. Alchemy is ritual of a primordial religion, an arduous process that harnesses the powers of nature and the cosmos to create materials that in essence can make a human into God. It was a lore than ancient man understood and practiced, coding this Alchemy in the form of myth and holy scripture. Although this secret to immortality thrived in the Egyptian Mysteries, it was later handed to other faiths, Mystery Religions, and Secret Societies. And one of these were perhaps the early Christians and the Classic Gnostics. When seen through the eye of the Alchemist, the teachings of Jesus, especially in the Gnostic Gospels, are full of hints and instructions on how to recreate the true Philosopher’s Stone–the powder that makes man literally divine as the gods have always wanted.

Al Sylvester: Jesus The Alchemist by Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio (2014) – 4 stars
This interview is hosted by Michael Conner of Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio and lasts an hour and twenty minutes. First off, Conner’s long introductions might rub some listeners the wrong way. I’ve long since gotten used to them, and in fact look forward to hearing how adroitly the host has put them together.
Okay, here’s the million-dollar question; who was Jesus? Because I believe in the subjectivity of a Hologram Universe, where each sentient being experiences the physical reality in their own singular way, there are multiple answers to this. To the literal-minded Christians, Jesus was a hippie troublemaker who ran away from authority and appealed to the crowds. To some Jewish sects, Rabbi Jesus stole scrolls from the Mystery Schools and tried to disseminate them to the public. To some Gnostics, Jesus learned Buddhist philosophical teachings and brought them to the Middle East. To the pagans, Jesus was a sun god, the same as previous sun gods, who was born during the Winter Solstice, and like some other sun gods, who went to the underworld and resurrected during the Spring Equinox. I even have more vague accounts of Jesus the Magician, because in the 1st and 2nd centuries CE, Jesus was depicted as having a wand or a staff to perform his miracles, such as when he allegedly raised Lazarus from the dead. Personally, I tend to lean toward the Gnostic and sun god theories, but with so many fables to choose from, you might prefer one of the others. Or you might go with another equally strong theory that claims Josephus Flavius invented the Jesus character on the fly, and that’s why there aren’t any contemporary records of him anywhere. The earliest historical mention of Jesus I believe comes from 76 CE, or 40 years after Jesus’ supposed death. Remember that history is written by the victors, and the victors in this case would be the Romans. It was Rome that commissioned and invented the Bible, and who voted to install Jesus as the Messiah and sun god prototype.
Well, here’s a new angle. In this interview, author Sylvester presents Jesus as a Masonic Alchemist. Now, I’m not as knowledgeable in this topic as I am with others, but that’s why I listened to this interview; so I could learn more. Remember that in the New Testament, the cult of Jesus was just starting up when Jesus went to meet with John the Baptist, who had a cult of his own. Some historians and researchers see these two people as rivals. The idea of the divine purity of water that Sylvester mentions makes perfect sense in this context. You didn’t really thing people got baptized just to get wet, did you? No, this was done because the water was meant to purify the person being baptized in a divine manner.
I have studied the Easter egg story, but I don’t remember the details. Sylvester’s account sounds more or less accurate here, but from what I recall the tradition went further back than the time of Jesus. And yes, I know about the Ishtar / Easter connection, but I’ll have to look up where those blasted Easter eggs originally came from.
The colors purple and red have a big significance, but I can’t remember the details on that one either. This is mostly because I jump back and forth while studying a million different subjects. Okay, I think purple signifies Jupiter and red is for Mars. Some people say purple is for Saturn, but I’m more inclined to believe that Saturn’s color is black, as in representing judgment in professions such as judges and executioners. Some of Sylvester’s conclusions I don’t agree with too much, such as his connection of the pyramid colors, black, red and white, with Mary. In my view, the red and white go more along with the Essenic mushroom cult.
Okay, here’s one last version of Jesus. This one is Jesus the Shaman, or even Jesus the Mushroom. In this version, rain (god) falls to the earth, impregnating the fertile land (Mary) and producing crops (Jesus). One researcher claims this refers to one specific plant, and that is the Amanita Muscaria Mushroom. Note that the color of this mushroom is red and white, and through Germanic myth we get many of our Christmas traditions, including the color of Santa Claus’ suit, which is also red and white. In the past, the Germanic peoples even put tiny mushroom ornaments, or real ones, on their pine trees. The Amanita mushroom is well known for its hallucinogenic properties, and so is a substance that is used in shamanic traditions. In fact, the ancient Vikings were said to use the Amanita right before going into battle, because it made them berserk (they wore bear hides, or bear shirts), giving us our modern word of berserkers.
Lastly, let me reiterate that the colors purple and red assuredly have astronomical connections. This is why the hierarchy of the Catholic Church use those very same colors in the robes worn by their bishops and cardinals. Also, the Popes at times wear their Saturn hats, which if memory serves, are colored red.
Ah, I just remembered another link. In Revelation 17, verse 4, we have the whore of Babylon dressed in purple and red. According to the Bible, this woman is vile and corrupt, but is she really? You must recall that the Church and the Masons have had a rivalry going on for hundreds of years, until the recent Pope Francis started going along with the mandates of the New World Order. Because Jews vilify their rivals to no end, it is possible that they’re projecting their hatred on this woman symbolically wearing those purple and red colors. If Jesus the Alchemist wore purple and red, that further elucidates the idea of the Masonic / Vatican grudges.
It’s all so very twisted and complicated, isn’t it?
