Imagine this: Centuries ago an order of European knights amassed a huge treasure of priceless artifacts from around the world.
The loot was later brought to the United States by the Freemasons, a secret society. Determined to keep it out of the hands
of the British during the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin and other Masons hid the treasure in a secret location but
left clues to its whereabouts in famous American landmarks.
Now, the great-great-great-great-great-grandson of a carriage boy who learned the secret vows to find the treasure. The clues
lead him to an invisible map hidden on the back of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
But the plot of National Treasure, the adventure yarn starring Nicolas Cage that opens in U.S. movie theaters today, is also
It's become a bona fide recipe for success: Invent an old-fashioned treasure hunt, fill it with conspiracies and secret codes,
and set it against a backdrop of real history.
When Dan Brown cooked up a similarly far-out plot in his runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code—about a 2,000-year-old
secret it claimed has been concealed by the Catholic Church—readers flocked to religious and historical texts to learn
more about what really happened.
Will National Treasure do the same for moviegoers?
"I hope it gets people interested in the past," said Jim Kouf, who co-wrote the screenplay. "After seeing the movie, my daughter
grabbed a copy of the Declaration of Independence and brought it to school with her. That was very exciting."
For an indication of the public's fascination with secret societies and conspiracy theories, jump on to the Internet, where
thousands of wild Web sites claim that shadowy alliances do everything from running international affairs to managing interplanetary
Perhaps the most famous secret society is the Freemasons, a medieval guild of stonemasons that formed in England in the early
18th century and developed into a powerful fraternity.
The Freemasons have enjoyed a reputation as influential politicians, scientists, and artists whose works and charities have
enhanced the world. Some Christian leaders, however, have called it a secret society bent on spreading evil.
Of the 55 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, at least 9 are said to have been Freemasons. President George Washington
was also among its members.
In the new movie the Freemasons are seen in a positive light.
"The Masons were founded on pretty solid principles, and a lot of those held for the Founding Fathers and probably influenced
them a great deal toward democracy at the time," said Kouf, whose grandfather was a Freemason. "When Washington had trouble
raising his army, he called upon his Masonic brothers, because he knew he could count on them."
There is a tenuous link between the Freemasons and the Knights Templar, a mysterious order of knights founded in 1119 to protect
Christian pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land. Many Freemasons today say they are the spiritual descendants of the knights.
According to legend, the Knights Templar discovered the greatest treasure in human history buried beneath the Temple of Solomon
in Jerusalem. What is true, scholars say, is that the knights became wealthy and powerful, and they may have rivaled the influence
of some European kings.
"They're mysterious because they were so sensationally successful," said Lisa Bitel, a history professor at the University
of Southern California, Los Angeles. "The idea behind lots of these conspiracy and treasure stories is that any individual
could happen upon a forgotten relic of the past, join with other like-minded mavericks, and use this relic for personal redemption
or universal good."
But in the early 1300s, the knights were suppressed and executed. Whether they found Solomon's treasure is not known. No treasure
map has ever been found.
Spoiler warning: Do not read on if you prefer not to learn a key plot development in the The Da Vinci Code.
Although the medieval knights also feature prominently in The Da Vinci Code, it was that novel's main plot twist—that
Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene—which stirred up real controversy. Could this be true?
"There's no evidence for it in any text," said Joseph Kelly, a professor of religious studies at John Carroll University in
Cleveland, Ohio, who has given numerous public lectures disproving the "secrets" in Brown's novel.
Kelly says many people are disappointed when he tells them that the marriage never happened. Yet the academic says there are
many things in the book that are historically accurate, and he believes the novel serves a valuable purpose.
"Brown tells people something they never knew—that the early history of Christianity was much more complicated than
anybody thought," he said.
Kouf, the movie scribe, sees little danger in weaving together fiction and history.
"If we were laying it out as a true story, then I'd agree that we're taking too many liberties," he said. "But because it's
set out in an adventure mold like Indiana Jones, I think we're OK. People know some of this stuff didn't happen."
Still, Kouf, who considers himself a "history nut," said he tried to include as many references to U.S. history—and
use as many real locations—as possible.
"Mostly we set out to have a rollicking good time," he said. "But if it gets people to also look at history differently and
pick up a book about the Founding Fathers, that's great."
The grimore of incantations
written by King Solomon??
THE KEY OF SOLOMON
CONCERNING THE DIVINE LOVE WHICH OUGHT TO PRECEDE THE ACQUISITION OF THIS KNOWLEDGE NOTES:
Solomon, the Son of David, King of Israel, hath said that the beginning of our Key is to fear God, to adore Him, to honour
Him with contrition of heart, to invoke Him1 in all matters which we wish to undertake, and to operate with very great devotion,
for thus God will lead us in the right way. When, therefore, thou shalt wish to acquire the knowledge of Magical Arts and
Sciences, it is necessary to have prepared the order of hours and of days, and of the position of the Moon, without the operation
of which thou canst effect nothing; but if thou observest them with diligence thou mayest easily and thoroughly arrive at
the effect and end which thou desirest to attain.
1. 1202 Lansdowne MSS. omits the concluding part of this sentence.
The most commonly available text of the keys, are admittedly bastardized, but many many such translations have been made,
some less biased than others. Taken as a whole, its reasonable to say that Solomon was its author, poor translations not withstanding
but take a tour of some of those translations and you will see they all agree on some basic points. There are still arguments
being tossed about today as the historic community cannot seem to settle down to a definition they all agree on...:) Nothing
The historic war of theology between scholars is however, mostly about what is said and the quality of the translation, not..
who wrote it...on this, they almost all attribute the work
to Solomon...proof ?
We may never have any that we can agree on, because we must depend on translations
and any translation is subject to error and one must keep that in mind.
Most of the old texts in question here were in Latin, which has only one saving grace, in that its a dead language meaning
its semantics have do not change due to common and changing usage, which is why its often used for such work. Any living language
is subject to semantic changes in what a word means, but like all translations is subject to error and bias on the part of
the translator since no one DOES speak it anymore,
its a catch 22.
Such as with MacGregor, he was foremost person, in his day to translate Latin, he was also a magician ,so any translations
he made, are admittedly biased, ( there are many theological arguments based on what he left out of his translations, mainly
dealing with women ) but as I said above, others have found the same reasoning, but often they translated it into a more modern
Christian slant, based on their own bias, which is also incorrect.
There are many wars of theology over this simply because it challenges concepts many tend to hold about themselves, so it
will be denied as valid by those sectors for as long as said faiths deny their own roots of magick, in my opinion. But even
most of the Hebrew scholars admit the Keys origins to be from Solomon, even if the texts ( there are many others than the
keys) are in of themselves, translations of texts, often long gone to oblivion. Again this is not absolute, as there are arguments
on that too.
With the exception of the Essene Dead sea scrolls, which are originals, they tend to back up the keys of Solomon regarding
the keys origins and validity in many ways. I personally studied the Dead sea scrolls with a gentleman who was there when
they were dug up and who helped to translate them.
He got special dispensation to teach this one and only class, as he was way beyond retirement age at the time. We had long
conversations on just this issue and many others regarding the scrolls contents, and I consider myself most fortunate to have
had such first hand information. He left the project of translators, mainly due to the fact his contemporaries wanted to sit
on the information, as they have largely done, as very few of them have been made public, but they were translated long ago.
The reason for this is simple, they challenge the currently held beliefs of many and my teacher would have no part in such
wholesale hypocrisy. And he shared with we few who took his class, concepts and translations that only scholars get to see,
if at all and had the benefit of his personal wisdom on what they meant.
While I do believe that the most popular version of the Keys, is corrupted by other texts and ideas, the basic concepts which
I have laid out here are agreed on by almost all persons who have translated it , to be the work of Solomon the wise,
including my teacher of the Essence scrolls.
But make the study yourself and see what you think :)

Last month, while in Florence, Professor
Langdon uncovered an ancient parchment that historians now believe may be the work of Leonardo da Vinci. The encoded parchment—bearing the name La Profezia (The
Prophecy)—raised eyebrows when scholars discovered it was signed "LSPDV." (Leonardo's full
name was Leonardo Ser
More intriguing still is the legend
that the visionary Leonardo, in the days before his death, made a powerful prophecy about the future. Could this be Da Vinci's long lost prediction? Historians remain eager to learn what this
parchment says. The code has yet to reveal its mystery, but Robert Langdon is very close to finding the key to deciphering
the message. Leonardo's encoded message consists of 24 symbols. Robert Langdon is certain there exists a key, and he is
working very hard to find it.
The "Sacred Geometry" of the Masonic layout of streets in Washington, D.C., will most likely lead Brown's Professor Langdon to discover that Fort Marcy Park lies along the same
line as that made by the National Mall, which lies between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, and that extending
that line almost all the way across the United States would pass directly through the Mormon Tabernacle Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Oddly, the Mormon Tabernacle is closed to the public throughout 2006.) Even
more eerie, a line drawn from the Washington Monument to Rock Creek Park, where the body of Chandra Levy, a attractive Jewish woman who was a federal Bureau of Prisons intern and the secret lover of a Congressman,
was found in 2002, would, if extended, pass through the Scottish Rite Freemasonic Center in D.C., as well as through Freemason's Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Above
Levy's name is handwritten the words "Shari Eli." Perhaps a character name? Chandra is Sanskrit for "light," that which Masons
claim to seek.
One of the strangest pages may be this list of statues and monuments in the Washington, D.C. area, with
perplexing phrases after them:
D.C. Masonic Temple — Irish ale
Jeff Memorial — A fenced in miser
Albert Pike statue — Fresh cad onto a monk
Persephone statue on Capitol — Hi, Israel
Geo. Washington Masonic Memorial — Print a rug, Ben
Washington Obelisk — Accords femmes
Notes: The last one may refer to the Washington Monument.
"Accords femmes" translates from French into "women's agreements."
George Washington and Albert Pike were both Freemasons,
as was Ben Franklin, who may be the "Ben" referenced in one of the phrases. "Ben" may also refer to the character Ben Gates
in the film National Treasure.
The message of the Georgia Guidestones, written
in English, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, and Swahili is:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
