Excerpt from:The Pyramids of Montauk
Preston Nichols and Peter Moon
"The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu is in the Khabs."
The most important aspect concerning the discoveries made in the
previous chapter is that they explain key aspects of our ancient
heritage. As was already said, The
Book of the Law leads us into the
Great Pyramid with a line drawn at a 26' angle. We are also led to
the Sphinx when the anagram of Bast appears in the book. This leaves
us in the middle of two ancient wonders and right next to Cairo, the
city of Mars. It has already been demonstrated that Egypt as well as
many other aspects of our civilization have fashioned themselves to
serve as a tribute to the planet Mars, but there was another
heavenly body that was held in even higher regard:
the star Sirius.
Shining as the brightest star in our heavens, the Egyptians based
their entire calendar on the movement of this sacred star. It was
already indicated that
the Great Pyramid was built to synchronize
with Sirius so that the star would shine through the hole to the
Queen's Chamber at a precise moment. Esoteric writings indicate that
the light shining through the shaft was meant to impart the
starlight of Sirius to an initiate during a ritual. If Egypt was so
fascinated with Sirius, it stands to reason that the ancient
civilization of Mars had a similar reverence for the star. In fact,
the geometric shapes on the planet Mars have been said to be built
in tribute to Sirius.
According to one legend, the face on Mars was in honor of the god or
solar logos known as Sukon. The Sirians settled Mars through his
permission. He has also been identified as Set or Seth. The reason
the Sirians settled Mars was because it was at that time in the
cradle orbit of life. Taking 720 days to get around the sun would
have resulted in the most preferable weather that was conducive to
civilization at that particular time period.
The Montauk Project, it was the Sirians
who provided the Montauk
chair used for the time experiments. It was a Mr. X who had
approached me and told me that he had been involved in negotiations
to obtain the chair. This man also told me of Crowley's ability to
manipulate time and was the first to suggest that
Experiment and Montauk Project were both resulting effects of
All of this is very ironic when one looks yet deeper into Crowley's
secret connections. Crowley was not only involved in the OTO but was
also a member of an arcane secret society known as the A:.A:.
(Argenteum Astrum) or the Order of the Silver Star. The "silver
star" referred to is Sirius itself, the most prominent in the
heavens and positioned as the chief star in the ancient
constellation "Phoenix". The ancient Assyrians and
derive their name from this legacy.
Crowley identified the Order of the Silver Star as the Illuminati
itself. As he was considered to be the head of the Illuminati, the
correspondences continue to run even deeper. The heart of his
magical current was inspired from Sirius and there was much
tradition to back this up. In occult tradition, Sirius is the Hidden
God or "the sun behind the sun". As the moon reflects the sun, so
does the sun reflect Sirius.
This concept was expressed in
of the Law when Crowley wrote "The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu
is in the Khabs." The word Khab means star while Khu refers to
light. What is being taught here is that collective "wisdom" often
assumes that the stars emanate light. The truth of the matter is
that the stars are in the light and are merely reflecting it. It was
in this sense that Crowley and the ancients who worshipped Sirius
were worshipping the light of creation. Sirius was the brightest
star, therefore it reflected the most light and was the most
the ancient Egyptians, there was a
special occult link
between Sirius and the Earth when they were at their closest
distance. In other words, more universal light was being reflected
from Sirius than at any other time of the year. This link was found
to be most powerful during the Dog Days of August (Sirius is known
as the Dog Star) which run from July 23 rd to August 23rd. Some
consider them to peak out as late as September 8th.
This aspect of
Sirius is very synchronistic if you remember the theory referred to
in The Montauk Project that the biorhythms of the Earth run every
twenty years on August 12th. This date is not only the anniversary
of Crowley's wedding, the Philadelphia Experiment and the
culmination of the Montauk Project; it is right in the center of the
Dog Days. Of course, the Montauk chair was supposed to be supplied
by the Sirians. Obviously, if this whole incredible Montauk scenario
is true, it stands to reason that the Sirians might have an idea or
two about how to make a chair that resonates with the consciousness
According to information from the Montauk story, the Sirians were
technical creatures and were not very political. According to
Al Bielek, the Sirians look very human in some respects. They are
muscular but have vertical slit eyes, like a cat's eyes. They wear a
covering over their hair, and it is suspected that they are bald.
Sometimes they have strange things on their ears which could be
communicating devices. They are approximately six feet in height and
can pass for humans in the proper attire. At Montauk, they were
generally affable and did their job.
Not too much else has been said about them, nor do I have anything
more to add from that quarter. What is important is that they seem
to have a rather strong correspondence in the information that is

The Twelfth Planet
very well that Earth has been visited by extraterrestrial critters
since time immemorial. This work traces the activity back to
which is exactly where the Sirians settled. All of this not
only places the Sirians at the focal point of our planetary
theology, it makes them a center of all sorts of alien activity.
Crowley studied this time line at its source when he examined the
ceremonial rites of the Sirians or ancient Sumerians, whatever you
want to call them. In history, these beings were known as the
shepherd kings and they were called the Yezidi. Their prophet was
Yezid and Crowley discovered that he was a reincarnation of him.
As Crowley studied these ancient Sumerians and their rites, he
learned they were sexual in the extreme and orgiastic. The
ceremonies were all done in synchronization with the stellar
revolutions. Many eventually found-their way into the Roman and
Greek mystery schools. These ancients looked at the primitive urges
in a much different way that "civilized" society does today. Not
unlike animals in mating season, they recognized instinctually that
revolutions of the universe coincided with sexual urges that enabled
one to gain access to invisible worlds or other dimensions.
Hindu tantric arts which is known as the yoga of love, these urges
would be better defined as kalas which are units of time or vaginal
vibrations. If one reduces space and time to its male and female
aspects, it is easy to grasp that Mother Nature is going to have
undulations that correspond to the vagina. Earlier in this book, the
vesica pisces was illustrated. This was an eye shaped glyph that
resulted as the second act of creation unfolded. It is not only the
shape of an eye, it is known as the Eye of Horus or as the Eye of
Set (Sirius). When this "eye" is in a vertical position, it is
symbolic of the vagina.
As the geometry of space and time unfolds in the evolutionary
process (which is known as Mother Nature), there are processes and
repetitions that mimic or harmonize with what we know as the sexual
process. These very energies are incredibly powerful as they make
creation a reality. Of course, the morphogenetic grid is the
blueprint that becomes reality. It is in this manner that the
ancient Sumerians or Sirians did orgiastic rites. They were honoring
the undulations and unfoldments of geometric evolution by linking
their consciousness through the sexual process.
We all know that we go into a different state of consciousness
during the sexual act. As it is a creation process, it is not hard
to relate that we can then have an effect on creation when in this
form of consciousness. When we engage in sex, we are tapping into
the blueprint that made the whole universe possible.
As Crowley studied this information, he saw that the ancients
understood what they were doing in their orgiastic rites. Of course,
if you were to walk in on an orgy today, you might find that the
procedure has degenerated into an unholy mess. On the other hand,
magical energies would definitely be present.
All of this brings us back to Bast, the goddess of witchcraft and
sexual magick in the Egyptian pantheon. If you ever had the urge to
do anything of a bizarre sexual nature, you were entering the realm
of Bast. Who exactly was she?
Often identified as the Egyptian cat goddess, Bast is one of the
most ancient forms of Babalon, the Mother goddess. Bast is portrayed
as both a cat and lion. As the goddess of sexual magick, she ruled
over lust and sexual heat. It was her job to see

potentialities manifested and had their day in the sun. Bast is
readily identified as the Beast because she "presided" over the
vast sexual experiments of Atlantis (and later Egypt) which gave
rise to mermaids, minotaurs, centaurs, Pegasus and the like.
Bast's legacy gives us at least two words in our modem lexicon. The
word "bastard" was derived from the Pandora's Box that opened with
the unrestricted breeding practices that were common during her
reign. During the reign of the goddess, paternity was not an issue.
Marriage came into being in large part due to the need to preserve a
patriarchal structure for inheritance and succession purposes. When
the father god took over, he made parentage an issue and punished
women who bore children outside of the established tradition of
wedlock. This is not so much a moral issue as a power issue.
Amazon cultures were known to be able to breed without the use of a
male. Because the human body is primarily androgynous, a separation
of the sexes is not theoretically necessary for procreation. This
contention about the Amazons is backed up by the fact that the zona
pellucida (the reproductive body in the female which contains a
sack) can be penetrated by a latent male protein within the
inherited genetic structure of the female that the body thinks and
treats like a sperm. This results in a virgin birth.
It could be argued that the Amazons were unbalanced in the direction
of the female energies. Whether or not that is true is not the
point. Their culture and the general goddess culture of that time
period was supplanted by a patriarchal culture that has attempted to
subjugate women to the most unbearable of conditions. The male
forces established control. Morality was then generated by the power
elite of that particular civilization.
On a very primal level, the purpose of the female energies is to
regenerate through the sexual organs. This is the gateway to
immortality for the beast or animal form of the species. Only
through the female genitalia can the beast project its image into a
future circumstance and thus obtain perpetual life for his/her kind.
Bast symbolized this and also the idea of uninhibited breeding
practices which is sometimes known as "catting".
This is the
derivation of the word "cunt", common slang for the vagina but
almost always used in a derogative sense. This word is so taboo that
it has earned its way onto the "list of seven dirty words" that
cannot be used on television or radio. As you can see, Bast's
influence has no small part in our culture. One can easily see that
the rancor and enmity that generally accompanies the words "bastard"
and "cunt" derives from the ancient criticism of the culture that
was prevalent during the time of Bast.
Crowley's concept of the Scarlet Woman or
is another name
for the goddess Bast. Scarlet is chosen because it is the color of
blood (also the color chosen for the cover of The Book of the Law).
As stated earlier, blood represents the passage of the moon and the
menstrual period. The lunar calendar is therefore the calendar of Bast and represents the true time line. This is in direct opposition
to the Gregorian calendar that was given to us by the decree of
Gregory, the same pope who authorized the inquisition.
In regard to her lunar aspect, Bast's offspring were known as
children of the moon, hence the name moon child. In the previous
chapter, Crowley was identified as the incarnation of the Priest
Ankh-af-an-Khonsu which equates to the Priest of Mentu. As Khonsu
also refers specifically to the moon, Bast can be identified as
Priestess of Mentu with regard to her lunar aspect. It is in this
respect that Bast could be considered to have presided over the
sexual and genetic experiments that are said to have occurred at
In what is an amusing correspondence, there are usually
various cats that roam the picnic area near the lighthouse parking
lot at Montauk. They have no apparent home but are always well fed
by the tourists who sometimes take one home for a pet. These cats
are known as the "Montauk Cats". I was once told that if you follow
the cats before a rainstorm, they will lead you to the underground.
Although Bast's correspondence with Montauk is a bit obscure, Bast
was glorified in ancient Egypt as the Sphinx. She had the loins of a
lion, symbolized by the constellation Leo and the top half of a
virgin woman, symbolized by the constellation Virgo. The Sphinx had
breasts at one point, but these were defaced as the patriarchal
culture established its foothold. The face was also altered at one
point to look more like a chimpanzee. This desecration of the Sphinx
prompts an important question: why did we get a chimp?
The answer lies in our genetics. Human evolution on this planet has
been primarily restricted to the biology of the ape. It was said
previously in this book that Rh positive blood refers to the
monkey genetics being present in the human system. Rh negative
implies an alien blood type. One can also see a resemblance to apes
in human beings. If you don't believe me, just go to the gorilla
exhibit at the zoo.
The word "monkey" itself gives us an interesting play on words.
"Mon" refers to Montu, Montauk or the earlier definitions provided
for that phoneme while "key" refers to the "key to Montauk".
Although there is some contention about it amongst scholars,
"Monkey" derives from the Dutch word monnekijn which traces back to
the Roman word monne, the origin of which is uncertain. The
handwriting is on the wall. Manikan means little man or an imitation
of man. Monne is intimately related to the root words already
The word "ape" is said to be borrowed from a Teutonic word yet there
is argument and some say it is really from the Celts. It all becomes
clear when we consult the derivation of the word " apex". This means
several interesting things. It is the highest culminating point of
time and also refers to the vertex of a triangle or the conical top
of a pyramid. Apex strongly suggests the concept of the Tower of Babalon or the mountain aspect of
Montauk. The word itself derives
from tip, specifically referring to the tip of a flamen's cap. (A
flamen was a priest or magician in ancient Rome, the word deriving
from the Sanskrit word brahman.)
Orangutan derives from
oran which means man and utati which equates
to forest. The word oran is Malaysian word which is suspiciously
close to Orion. Chimpanzee derives from "pan" which means all
embracing. It also refers to Pan, the god of the forest and fields.
He was quite sexually active and Crowley wrote a lot of poetry about
Gorilla was coined as a word by the real life Doc Savage based upon
a West African word for a race of hairy women. It is a direct
reference to a genetic specimen that we don't see or hear too much
about today. You can read the book Mother was a Lovely Beast by
Philip Jose Farmer for more information along this line.
The point of all this is very clear and the phrase "to monkey around
with" takes on a whole new meaning. Somebody monkeyed with our
genetics in quite a literal sense. In the time of Bast, all types of
genetic samplings were embraced. The conquering influence chose to
propagate a similitude with the apes through the morphogenetic grid
Bast established that human consciousness could become a lower form
it if chose to or that the lower forms could obtain the equivalent
of human consciousness. This is a sacrilegious teaching to many, but
it was highly regarded as the truth in times past. The city of
Bubastis was found by archeologists to contain a multitude of
mummified cats who stood as guardians of the temple. The reverence
to Bast was intense.
The Book of the Law
teaches us that the propagation of life is
completely unrestrictive in its nature. All potentialities are real
and this is accomplished through the evolving geometries that lie
beneath the blue print of evolution. The goddess Bast champions the
unrestricted potential of all creation. Our limitations in evolution
are influenced by those who dominate the morphogenetic grid but are
essentially determined by our own free will and choice in the
