John Dee (1527-1608/9) Alchemist, mathematician, astrologer,
kabbalist, occultist and magician. Active in British military
and diplomatic affairs. John Dee was 'Queen's Intelligencier'
to Queen Elizabeth 1 and a close associate of Sir Francis
Walsingham, founder of the British Secret Service.
1582 Dee's crystal, through contact with angelic spheres,
revealed the keys to the Enochian language. The angel instructed
Dee and his friend Edward Kelly to point to specific letters
which when reversed backwards and forwards revealed messages.
The crystal was used to fortell events of a political and
military nature, for example regarding the fate of the British
Empire and the Spanish Armada.
practice of military/political scrying for Walsingham and
Queen Elizabeth 1 is a precursor to the 1972-1995 US Military
remote viewing program. The
Enochian language was later studied by Aleister Crowley and
US rocket scientist Jack Parsons of the O.T.O. In 1994 the
Enochian letters were used as glyphs to operate the arc angle
in the MGM film 'Stargate' one year before the US remote viewing
program, 'Stargate', was made public.
series of remote viewing drawings were made in the presence
of Dr John Deešs scrying crystal at the Science
Museum, London and experiments were made using Dee's Aztek/Obsidian
mirror at the British Museum.
