IN THE BEGINNING: The opening statements in Fama Fraternitatis

The start of the secret society known as the Rosicrucians can be traced back to the opening statements in Fama Fraternitatis, the first Rosicrucian manifesto published in 1814. This is where it all started a little over 400 years ago at the start of the last baktun in Elizabethan England. These lines have been very carefully chosen. This is where the Rosicrucians outline an international organization that will remain in place until the “Worlds end.”  

After this manner began the Fraternity of the Rosie Cross; first, by four persons onely, and by them was made the Magical Language and writing, with a large Dictionary, which we yet dayly use to Gods praise and glory, and do finde great wisdom therein; they made also the first part of the Book M: but in respect that the labor was too heavy, and the unspeakable concourse of the sick hindred them, and also whilst his new building (called Sancti spiritus) was now finished, they concluded to draw and receive yet others more into their Fraternity; to this end was chosen brother R.C. his deceased fathers brothers son, brother B. a skilful Painter, G. and P.D. their Secretary, all Germains except J.A. so in all they were eight in number, all batchelors and of vowed virginity, by those was collected a book or volumn of all that which man can desire, wish, or hope for. Although we do now freely confess, that the World is much amended within an hundred years, yet we are assured, that our Axiomata shall unmovably remain unto the Worlds End, and also the world in her highest and last Age shall not attain to see any thing else; for our Rota takes her beginning from that day when God spake Fiat, and shall end when he shall speak Pereat; yet Gods Clock striketh every minute, where ours scarce striketh perfect hours. We also stedfastly beleeve, that if our Brethren and Fathers had lived in this our present and clear light, they would more roughly have handled the Pope, Mahomet, Scribes, Artists, and Sophisters, and had shewed themselves more helpful, not simply with sighs, and wishing of their end and consummation. When now these eight Brethren had disposed and ordered all things in such manner, as there was not now need of any great labour, and also that every one was sufficiently instructed, and able perfectly to discourse of secret and manifest Philosophy, they would not remain any longer together, but as in the beginning they had agreed, they separated themselves into several Countries, because that not only their Axiomata might in secret be more profoundly examined by the learned, but that they themselves, if in some Country or other they observed anything, or perceived some Error, they might inform one another of it. Their agreement was this: First, That none of them should profess any other thing, then to cure the sick, and that gratis. 2. None of the Posterity should be constrained to wear one certain kind of habit, but therein to follow the custom of the Country. 3. That every year upon the day C. they should meet together at the house S. Spiritus, or to write the cause of his absence. 4. Every Brother should look out for a worthy person, who after his discease might succeed him. 5. The word C.R. should be their Seal, Mark, and Character. 6. The Fraternity should remain secret one hundred years.

The Internet Archice (a.k.a. Wayback Machine), The Rosicrucian Manifestos: Fama Fraternitatis and Confessio Fraternitatis

This text from the Fama Fraternitatis, or, A Discovery of the Fraternity of the most laudable Order of the Rosy Cross has a whole new meaning once you realize what is happening. You may wonder what happened after 100 years. The answer is 1717, the Freemasons. But the Rosicrucians never stopped being “invisible.” They rarely expose themselves to the author. Yet they are behind the new hypersonic missile technology that has Denver, Colorado in military checkmate. And they are the reason the Nazarene knew things would be calm in the end. Had 9/11 not happened, had the bankers not been made aware of that they are arrayed against forces about which they know nothing, only God knows what they had in store for us. Today is Winter Solstice, and the author is headed to Six Flags to celebrate the coming apocalypse. He doesn’t think the expression Worlds End is a mistake. There is no missing apostrophe. The word Worlds is plural for a reason. They mean forever. Hence, the capitalization. The Rosicrucians are the ones who know everything. The bankers are working with imperfect knowledge. It has always been so. Today is blessed. It is the beginning of the end of one of mankind’s worst nightmares, itself, the throwing off of rank materialism for the reality of the fact that we are mental beings. And the Rosicrucians are leading the way. This text is what got them started.
