Jack Parsons and the Scarlet Thread

A spiritual conception occurred on another plane via the Sex Magicks of Aleister Crowley and Mari Desti. I believe this "Magickal Child" manifested on Earth as Jack Parsons (occultist, rocket scientist) on October 2, 1914. When Jack Parsons got involved with Aleister Crowley, the Beast was old. His health was failing, he was broke and reduced to selling love potions on Brighton Pier just to stay alive. He predicted the desperately needed arrival of a “rich man from the west”. This turned out to be Jack Parsons. I'm not going to get into Jack Parsons and L. Ron Hubbard too much here, but they were Crowley's unofficial students during his final years. L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction author who later founded the Scientology movement and Jack Parsons, a rocket scientist who founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratories, studied Crowley's work at length. They met when Jack opened an OTO Lodge in his childhood home in Pasadena, California, a once wealthy suburb of Hollywood. This branch was called Agape Lodge, and it was devoted to free love and experimental drugs. Hubbard became deeply involved in Parson’s Babalon Working. The purpose of the ritual was to draw a Scarlet Woman into Parson’s orbit who would then become impregnated, through a series of sexual rituals, with a Magickal Child, Horus, the avatar of the New Aeon.

Around the time of Jack Parsons birth, Crowley started receiving visions and trance-communications he called "The Alamantrah Working". The Amalantrah working was what Crowley termed "The Great Work" i.e. the intentional cultivation of spiritual growth. According to Crowley part of the great work involved "the establishment of contact with non-human intelligences". The purpose of the Amalantrah invocations, by Crowley's own admission, was to open an interdimensional portal that would allow him access to beings from other dimensions. Crowley was successful...he made contact. He sketched the being LAM (the beings we know as Grays) in 1918. Madame Blavatsky used the illustration in her book The Voice of the Silence, around the same time. Beneath the picture she wrote: "Lam is the Tibetan word for Way or Path, and LAMA is He who Goeth, the specific title of the Gods of Egypt, the Treader of the Path, in Buddhistic phraseology." The Stargate or stellar rift between time and space, created by Crowley's Amalantrah Working, created a portal through which Lam and other extra-cosmic influences can enter the known universe.

Hubbard and Parsons were especially interested in the interdimensional portal that Crowley had created via the Amalantrah invocations. It is interesting to note the time frame between Hubbard and Parsons allegedly reopening the interdimensional portal or "stargate" and the wave of extraterrestrial activity and UFO sightings that began with the Kenneth Arnold's sighting of nine "flying silver disks" over the cascade Mountains in June 1947, not long after the Roswell incident. This is when the United States Government made contact with extraterrestrial intelligences. I won't get into all that but if you've read this far, you probably already know the deal! Anyway, Crowley was concerned that Hubbard and Parsons were acting recklessly when dealing with higher energies. Having spent a lifetime mastering his interaction with supernatural forces, he considered them overconfident and inexperienced and told them as much, finally ceasing all communication with them. Neither man would be deterred and Hubbard and Parsons proceeded to work with the dormant portal that Crowley had left almost 30 years earlier.

After a falling out with Hubbard and his first Scarlet Woman, Jack continued the Babalon Working with his Scarlet Woman the visionary, Marjorie Cameron. She arrived on Parsons’s doorstep when he returned from several intense nights of invocations in the desert. (she was programmed) After further magical workings together, Parsons and Cameron felt that they had conceived a Moonchild, as described in the novel of the same name by Aleister Crowley, although no physical child was born. Cameron had an abortion after conceiving a child within two weeks of meeting Parsons. A Moonchild was not concieved because Majorie was a programmed Blood Moon. The spiritual being that Jack felt he concieved was simply a realization the same of Moonchild (Star of Babalon) realized by Crowley. It takes more than one generation to manifest the Babalon Current into the world. The Goddess comes with Fire and Force, society would need a few generations to adjust. Jack Parson's blew up in a mysterious explosion. I believe he was murdered, this was orchestrated by Marjorie Cameron. She went on to appear in Kenneth Anger's film Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, again as the Scarlet Woman. She also appeared in the films of Curtis Harrington, including his 1955 documentary about her art, The Wormwood Star. Without the Beast, the Babalon Working was left unfinished...or was it? I was born on Jack's birthday, October 2, 1975.

Like Crowley, it was Jack's intention to manifest an individual incarnation of Babalon, as well as to catalyze the emergence of that force in society. After Christ's Death, the Goddess aspect was driven underground. The church as we know it was built on the teachings of Christ's disciple Paul. But his teachings were incomplete, and became more fragmented and perverted over time. The true legacy of Christ was left to Mary Magdalene, who retreated to a remote cave for the rest of her life. From here she taught the Mysteries of Babalon to other women healers in secrecy. The Goddess has been kept alive through the Scarlet Thread...the bloodline of Mary Magdalene also known as the Holy Grail. Various Mystery Schools and prophets have fortold the return of the Goddess. It's this seed/thought that set Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons apart from other prophets and occultists.

  1. Jack Parsons was in on the very beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, but in no way could be described as a "founder". He and others helped test the theories of another grad student at CalTech. The latter's thesis advisor then procured US funding for the JPL.
