The Nine Unknown Men

This tradition goes back to the time of Emperor Asoka, who 
reigned in India from 273 B.C.  He was the grandson of 
Chandragupta who was the first to unify India.  Ambitious like 
his ancestor whose achievements he was anxious to complete, he 
conquered the region of Kalinga which lay between what is now 
Calcutta and Madras.  The Kalingans resisted and lost 100,000 
men in the battle.

At the sight of this massacre Asoka was overcome.  For ever 
after he experienced a horror of war.  He renounced the idea of 
trying to integrate the rebellious people, declaring that the 
only true conquest was to win men's hearts by observance of the 
laws of duty and piety, because the Sacred Majesty desired that 
all living creatures should enjoy security, peace and happiness 
and be free to live as they pleased.

A convert to Buddhism, Asoka, by his own virtuous example, 
spread this religion throughout India and his entire empire 
which included Malaya, Ceylon and Indonesia.  Later Buddhism 
penetrated to Nepal, Thibet, China and Mongolia.  Asoka 
nevertheless respected all religious sects.  He preached 
vegetarianism, abolished alcohol and the slaughter of animals.  
H.G. Wells, in his abridged version of his Outline of World 
History wrote: "Among the tens of thousands of names of monarchs 
accumulated in the files of history, the name of Asoka shines 
almost alone, like a star."  

It is said that the Emperor Asoka, aware of the horrors of war, 
wished to forbid men ever to put their intelligence to evil uses.
During his reign natural science, past and present, was vowed 
to secrecy.  Henceforward, and for the next 2,000 years, all 
researches, ranging from the structure of matter to the 
techniques employed in collective psychology, were to be hidden 
behind the mystical mask of a people commonly believed to be 
exclusively concerned with ecstasy and supernatural phenomena.  
Asoka founded the most powerful secret society on earth: that of 
the Nine Unknown Men.

It is still thought that the great men responsible for the 
destiny of modern India, and scientists like Bose and Ram 
believe in the existence of the Nine, and even receive advice 
and messages from them.  [cf. Phyllis Schlemmer's modern "Council 
of Nine" which "channeling" sessions have drawn such notables as 
Uri "Spoon-Bender" Geller, physicist Dr. Andrija "SPECTRA" 
Puharich (who once noted that Geller's entity was Horus/Hawk-like 
in appearance -- another story for another time perhaps) and, of 
course, societal sci-fi metaprogrammer extraordinaire Gene "Star 
Trek" Roddenberry  -B:.B:.]

One can imagine the extraordinary importance of secret knowledge 
in the hands of nine men benefiting directly from experiments, 
studies and documents accumulated over a period of more than 2,000
years.  What can have been the aim of these men?  Not to allow 
methods of destruction to fall into the hands of unqualified 
persons, and to pursue knowledge which would benefit mankind.  
Their numbers would be renewed by co-option, so as to preserve 
the secrecy of techniques handed down from ancient times.

Examples of the Nine Unknown Men making contact with the outer 
world are rare.  There was, however, the extraordinary case of 
one of the most mysterious figures in Western history: the Pope 
Sylvester II, known also by the name of Gerbert d'Aurillac.  
Born in the Auvergne in 920 (d. 1003) Gerbert was a Benedictine 
monk, professor at the University of Rheims, Archbishop of 
Ravenna and Pope by the grace of Otho III.  He is supposed to 
have spent some time in Spain, after which a mysterious voyage 
brought him to India where he is reputed to have acquired 
various kinds of skills which stupefied his entourage.  For 
example, he possessed in his palace a bronze head which answered 
Yes or No to questions put to it on politics or the general 
position of Christianity.  [cf. "Max the Crystal Skull" of current 
notoriety  -B:.B:.]  According to Sylvester II this was a perfectly 
simple operation corresponding to a two-figure calculation, and was 
performed by an automaton similar to our modem binary machines.  
This "magic" head was destroyed when Sylvester died, and all the 
information it imparted carefully concealed.  No doubt an author-
ized research worker would come across some surprising things in 
the Vatican Library.

In the cybernetics journal, Computers and Automation of October 
1954, the following comment appeared: "We must suppose that he 
(Sylvester) was possessed of extraordinary knowledge and the most 
remarkable mechanical skill and inventiveness.  This speaking 
head must have been fashioned 'under a certain conjunction of 
stars occurring at the exact moment when all the planets were 
starting on their courses.'  Neither the past, nor the present 
nor the future entered into it, since this invention apparently 
far exceeded in its scope its rival, the perverse 'mirror on the 
wall' of the Queen, the precursor of our modern electronic brain.
Naturally, it was widely asserted that Gerbert was only able 
to produce such a machine because he was in league with the 
Devil and had sworn eternal allegiance to him."  

Had other Europeans any contact with this society of the Nine 
Unknown Men?  It was not until the nineteenth century that this 
mystery was referred to again in the works of the French writer 

Jacolliot was French Consul at Calcutta under the Second Empire. 
He wrote some quite important prophetic works, comparable, if 
not superior to those of Jules Verne.  He also left several 
books dealing with the great secrets of the human race.  A great 
many occult writers, prophets and miracle-workers have borrowed 
from his writings which, completely neglected in France, are 
well known in Russia.

Jacolliot states categorically that the society of Nine did 
actually exist.  And, to make it all the more intriguing, he 
refers in this connection to certain techniques, unimaginable 
in 1860, such as, for example, the liberation of energy, 
sterilization by radiation and psychological warfare.

Yersin, one of Pasteur and de Roux's closest collaborators, was 
entrusted, it seems, with certain biological secrets when he 
visited Madras in 1860, and following the instructions he 
received was able to prepare a serum against cholera and the 
plague.  [Yet in these current Eschatological Times of Trouble, 
have these hidden secrets slipped into the hands of vile and 
profane individuals such as Wolf "Herr Doktor AIDS" Smuzness 
and, of course, "Oppie's boys" over at the LANL labs?  -B:.B:.]

The story of the Nine Unknown Men was popularized for the first 
time in I927 in a book by Talbot Mundy who for twenty-five years 
was a member of the British police force in India.  His book is 
half fiction, half scientific inquiry.  The Nine apparently 
employed a synthetic language [Enochian?  -B:.B:.], and each of 
them was in possession of a book that was constantly being 
rewritten and containing a detailed account of some science.

[Note here the Qabbalistic "synchronicities" in the subjects of 
the Nine Books.  -B:.B:.]

The first of these books is said to have been devoted to the 
technique of propaganda and psychological warfare.  "The most 
dangerous of all sciences," wrote Mundy, "is that of moulding 
mass opinion, because it would enable anyone to govern the whole 
world."  [Indeed, cf. the Rockefeller-funded exploits of such 
notables as Harvard's Dr. John Mack and CSETI's Dr. Steve Greer 
along with such other notables as the military/intelligence 
community's Psyop (psychological warfare operative) Extraordinaire 
Michael "Temple of Set" Acquino, Dr. John "LSD, Dolphins 'n Sensory 
Deprivation Tanks" Lilly, The BABALON Bunch (i.e. Crowley, Parsons 
'n Hubbard), etc. etc. etc.  -B:.B:.]

It must be remembered that Korjybski's General Semantics did not 
appear until 1937 and that it was not until the West had had the 
experience of the last World War that the techniques of the 
psychology of language, i.e. propaganda, could be formulated. 
The first American college of semantics only came into being in 
1950.  In France almost the only book that is at all well known 
is Serge Tchocotine's Le Viol des Foules [i.e. "The Rape of the 
Masses," no doubt a take-off on Ortega y Gasset's classic socio-
logical work of the same name.  -B:.B:.] which has had a consider-
able influence in intellectual political circles, although it 
deals only superficially with the subject.

The second book was on physiology.  It explained, among other 
things, how it is possible to kill a man by touching him, death 
being caused by a reversal of the nerve-impulse.  It is said 
that Judo is a result of "leakages" from this book.

The third volume was a study on microbiology, and dealt 
especially with protective colloids.

The fourth was concerned with the transmutation of metals.  
There is a legend that in times of drought temples and religious 
relief organizations received large quantities of fine gold from 
a secret source.

The fifth volume contains a study of all means of communication, 
terrestrial and extra-terrestrial.  [Keep in mind this is circa 
250 B.C.E.  -B:.B:.]

The sixth expounds the secrets of gravitation.

The seventh contains the most exhaustive cosmogony known to 

The eighth deals with light.

The ninth volume, on sociology, gives the rules for the 
evolution of societies, and the means of foretelling their 

Connected with the Nine Unknown Men is the mystery of the waters 
of the Ganges.  Multitudes of pilgrims, suffering from the most 
appalling diseases, bathe in them without harming the healthy 
ones.  The sacred waters purify everything.  Their strange 
properties have been attributed to the fact that they contain 
bacteriophages.  But why should these not be formed in the 
Bramaputra, the Amazon or the Seine?  Jacolliot in his book 
advances the theory of sterilization by radiation, a hundred 
years before such a thing was thought to be possible.  These 
radiations, he says, probably come from a secret temple hollowed 
out in the bed of the Ganges.

Avoiding all forms of religious, social or political agitations, 
deliberately and perfectly concealed from the public eye, the 
Nine were the incarnation of the ideal man of science, serenely 
aloof, but conscious of his moral obligations.  Having the power 
to mould the destiny of the human race, but refraining from its 
exercise, this secret society is the finest tribute imaginable 
to freedom of the most exalted kind.  Looking down from the 
watch-tower of their hidden glory, these Nine Unknown Men 
watched civilizations being born, destroyed and re-born again, 
tolerant rather than indifferent, and ready to come to the 
rescue -- but always observing that rule of silence that is the 
mark of human greatness.

Myth or reality?  A magnificent myth, in any case, and one that 
has issued from the depths of time -- a harbinger, maybe, of the 
future ?
