I know some people have made the claim that the Claustrum Oil theory proves that Jesus Christ did not exist; an idea I vehemently disagree with. Rather, I believe it further proves God’s broad plan for humanity, let me explain. You see, the one thing I have come to understand by studying Masonic allegory is we must look layers deep to find the truth; and in many cases the same issue will have multiple meanings and definitions. I find it most interesting to discover parallels between the human body and the story of Christ, God, hell, heaven and even biblical events in history. In fact, the Essenes (early Christians) new about these unique parallels:
The early Christians (Essenes) knew that the Scriptures, whether written in ancient Hebrew or the Greek, were allegories, parables or fables based on the human body, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 89).
Indeed, God exists in all his glory; a fact he has proven to me countless times. I also believe Jesus Christ existed in human form; yet, this does not dismiss the human body’s uniqueness to these previous claims, as was stated by Dr. George Carey:
If the allegories of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as Paul’s Epistles and Acts of the Apostles teach anything, they teach the mastery and transmutation of the human body by anyone who obeys the physiological guide book the whole book the Holy Bible. But let the reader observe that each of the 66 books, as well as an almost countless number of ancient books of all races and languages, teach the same mathematical and physiological facts (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 22).
You see, it is well understood that the Holy Bible was a book of Immortal instruction:
THERE is an automatic procedure within the human body, which, if not interfered with, will do away with sickness, trouble, sorrow and death, as stated in the Bible (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 21).
Furthermore, the Bible gives us countless related similes to the human body; like the Word, or Seed:
The Bible tells us that “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word (or seed), that proceedeth out of the mouth of God,” proving that, in order to truly live, we must save the precious substance. In anatomy, the passage way underneath the sutures which leads down into the thalamus, is the mouth of God, for it is from the cerebrum, the upper brain, that the most wonderful “gift” to the human body comes. This represents the unseen “mouth.” The visible mouth is the solar plexus (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 42).
Therefore, the brain is the father (God) metaphorically speaking; it is from this substance that the entire body originally existed:
We can turn to the pages of Gray’s Anatomy, or any good medical dictionary, and examine carefully the illustration of a 26-day old foetus. We see, then, that almost the entire body consists of brain substance in fact, it looks like an elongated brain. The upper brain, or Father-Mother substance, is what furnishes the material from which the body is made. Verily it is the Alpha, the beginning. Degenerates, and people living in excesses, have become greatly deficient in this precious material, and the whole appearance of the body testifies to the desecration of the temple (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 42).
With that clearly understood, we must now take a look at the word Seed, or God, which is the nucleus of everything – the beginning of man – the beginning of the WORD:
“Now this is the parable. The SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD.” Luke 8:11. “Seed, word” and “God,” are all synonyms of one and the same thing the wonderful creative substance, the universal esse, from which all things are brought forth, and in which all things are. The Scriptures, or allegories and parables of the Bible, are the only writings that give us information as to what the Word of God is. Therefore, in this book, we will quote what is written there in regard to it. Seed is the cause, the nucleus of everything, therefore a seed is “the beginning.” In the beginning was the WORD” (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 43).
As such, the brain (father or Creator) secretes a fluid or oil, often called the marrow, which flows down the spinal cord; this generative Seed is the life essence, and is called Christ – in Greek Christ means oil. When this oil is lifted up, like that of Jesus, it regenerates the body, and overcomes the last enemy, death. This oil, Christ or Seed travels through the spinal cord:
The fluid, oil, or marrow which flows down the spinal cord, comes from the upper brain, the Creator or Father, the “Most High,” and is known in physiology as ovum, or generative seed that life essence which creates the human form of corruptible flesh. In the Greek, from which the New Testament was translated, this marrow is called Christ, which is the Greek word for oil. When this oil is refined, transmuted, lifted up, raised, it becomes so highly vitalized that it regenerates the body and “overcomes” the last enemy, death. How can it be lifted up? By lifting up the “Son of man,” the seed, the word, the savior. The oil (Christ) in the spinal cord, is the salt which is mentioned in the Bible, and the savior is the seed, or Jesus (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 44).
You see, there is no greater mystery than man himself. To know thyself is perhaps the hardest thing mankind has faced since the beginning of time. Nevertheless, God has given us a path, a strait and narrow way, if you will, to redemption; a way to save ourselves from death, but only a few are paying attention. We just must be wise enough to see his plan, his river that leads to the most high from the dead sea (base of the spine) or Sodom:
There is no mystery, no marvel in all the universe that is greater than man himself. “Man know thyself” confronts us, down through the ages, but only a few have paid attention to the voice of the Delphic oracle only a few have looked within. There is a wonderful “Strait and narrow way,” a real strait, not straight, which extends from the upper brain, the cerebrum, to the end of the spinal cord, otherwise named Jordan, in the Bible. We find that the meaning of this in Hebrew is, descender or “River of God.” The “Strait and narrow way is, indeed, the River of God, for it leads to the Father the Most High the upper brain. As the Jordan empties into the Dead Sea, so the spinal cord terminates in that section of the anatomy, which is designated, in the medical terminology as Sodom (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 44).
Therefore, now that you know what this process is all about, the question remains, “how does one get his seed to rise again?” In short, it is by saving the precious seed (and other related activities); let us have Dr. George Carey give an allegorical account:
The monthly seed (fruit) when saved, not “eaten,” heals disease and sin. “Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,” the body. Moses, the first born, the seed, desired to regenerate the blood and lead it to the promised land, thus he lifted up the animal forces, sex desire, here symboled as the serpent (see the temptation of Adam and Eve) … So shall the “Son, or Seed, of Man be lifted up,” etc., etc. that is put on the cross in order to reach the pineal gland. “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” I will draw all other seed unto me. Study the etymology of “men.” Also read “The tree in the midst of the garden bore fruit every month and its leaves were healing.” The Commandment to not eat of the fruit of this tree was not (is not) heeded by the race and death is the result. The serpent said “Eat, thou shalt not die,” but sex desire was a liar from the beginning (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 137).
As can be seen in the above text, sex, or the release of the seed (semen) results in death. Yes, yes, I know this goes against virtually everything our society teaches today. Nevertheless, if we look back into our history, it actually makes sense. Why does the Catholic church teach abstinence? Where did the idea that sex is something that should only be used for procreation come from? In hindsight, it actually makes sense from an ancient esoteric perspective. You see, our body dies for a lack of knowledge (sin):
Sin is from the Hebrew letter Schin, meaning to fall short of knowledge. Sin does not mean wrong or crime, but one may commit a crime and do wrong through lack of knowledge. Paul said: “I die daily” … I am the chief of sinners.” Revelation: “And the lamp thereof is the Lamb.” The word “Lamb” ends with B, which means a house or body of some kind (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 137).
Therefore, the Seed, (semen) must be maintained within the body and used for even greater purposes (physical Immortality). This does not mean a man cannot have sexual intercourse; rather, it means he should release his Seed unless the intent is the bring life into this world – otherwise sex has become an unworthy act. Giving pleasure to ones companion (wife) is a loving act, but ejaculation becomes selfish if used for anything other than to bring another life into this world (child bearing). Also, do not waist it upon the ground – masterbation for the purpose of self gratification, through the release of the Seed, ends in the same selfish act. In fact, an Immortal man wants his Seed to build up, in order to raise the it up the spinal cord to the brain, which will result in not only physical, but spiritual, powers as well. Yet, there is more to this story than just physical gratification; there is also the matter of our actions and behaviors:
Envy, hatred, ambition, covetousness, will destroy the capsule that contains the seed and thus corrupt the blood, as surely as sexual contact. Alcohol in all its deceptive forms is the arch foe to this life-seed and seeks by every means known to the enemy of man to destroy it. No drunkard shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven” because alcohol destroys the redeeming substance that enables man to understand or think in his heart the thoughts of the Spirit. Alcohol cuts the capsule that holds the Esse born every month in Bethlehem. Alcohol eats the fruit of the tree of life. Gluttony is another enemy to regeneration. All excess of food, all that is not burnt up in the furnace the stomach and intestinal tract, all that is not properly digested, ferments and produces acid which develops alcohol. Auto-intoxication is common among those who overeat. Most everyone overeats. The furnace, stomach and digestive tract becomes a distillery when the surplus food ferments, and thus becomes Babylon, the home of unclean birds and beasts which pander to carnal mind. Here we have the reason why sickness was considered Sin by the ancients. “To heal the sick and cast out devils” is the mission of the seed. “He that is born of God cannot sin, or be sick, for his seed remaineth in him.” “The blood of Christ cleanseth from all sin,” therefore from all disease. Here is the physiological explanation: When the Christed substance, the ointment from the river of Jordan, the oil in the spinal cord, reaches the pineal gland, it vibrates to a rate that causes new blood the new wine. This is the blood of Christ that heals all infirmities (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 138).
Consequently, even envy or hatred or ambition and covetousness could easily inhibit the Seed’s ability to rise up the spinal cord, as surely as the sexual release of semen. Hence, one’s actions also play a direct role in this process. While teaching young Mason’s, I often ask them, “To what end; why be a good man; for what purpose?” I now firmly believe that the lessons Freemasonry and the ideal of men being a good, have a direct linkage to this process. They all now clearly line up, if one seeks to even look upon this clear relationship.
Yet, there is even more. Alcohol consumption is also a hindrance to this process, which is further aligned with gluttony – overeating; for overeating leads the body turning excessive food into alcohol. In short, Alcohol eats away at the tree of life.
Therefore, in summation, the word Secret is derived from Secretions; and is directed originally from the Cerebrum, which supplies the human temple (body) with its life force for regeneration. This Secretion (Claustrum Oil) is either enhanced or diminished based on an individual’s behavior – everything from Gluttony to Sexual gratification (releasing the Seed, as mentioned previously):
The word Secret is derived from Secretions. The upper brain, the Cerebrum, contains the secretions, gray matter, creative or that which creates, builds and supplies all the life force of the human temple, Soul of Man’s (Solomon’s temple). Hence God, the Creator, dwells in you. The cerebellum is his throne. Prayer or desires expressed by man in the cerebellum for righteousness is answered in the cerebrum. Thus by prayer to God within, and in no other way, can man overcome the adversary or the “carnal mind which is at enmity to God” (Dr. George Carey, God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 138).
So the next time you act inappropriately, know well that your behavior, actions and even thoughts may in fact be diminishing your ability to regenerate your body.
