From The New Age Magazine, December 1969 (pp. 34-6):

Astronaut Visits Grand Commander

The history of Masonry in the space age took another step forward on September 16, 1969, when Astronaut Brother Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., 32°, visited the House of the Temple in Washington. Accompanied by his father, Edwin E. Aldrin, Sr., also a Scottish Rite Mason, Astronaut Aldrin paused in his busy schedule to greet Grand Commander Smith and to present to him the handmade Scottish Rite flag he had taken to the moon.

The flag is made of white silk, measures 22 x 30 centimeters, and is edged by a band of gold. It is embroidered with the words “The Supreme Council, 33°, Southern Jurisdiction, USA” and the motto “Deus Meumque Jus.” It is also decorated with the double-headed eagle, the crown of the Thirty-third Degree, the insignia of the Sovereign Grand Commander, and the insignia of a Master Mason.

On that historic lunar flight from July 16 to 24, 1969, the presence of this flag symbolized Masonry’s universal importance. When man reaches new worlds, Masonry will be there.

A Strange Metallic Plaque with Cybernetic Occult Symbolism

Originally Published at Conspiracy Archive on 2008/09/08

A few years ago someone sent me a photo of a metal-cast plaque he had found on the wall at the house of a friend of his family’s. I no longer have the original email and I fail to recall the exact details of what the person (at whose home it was found) did for a living, but he was probably an engineer or a cyberneticist. The person who contacted me was inquiring as to whether I had seen something like this before – I hadn’t.

Here is the photo:

De Bassus Beer – Premium Illuminati Lager

Thomas Maria Freiherr De Bassus (1742-1815)

Originally Published at Conspiracy Archive in 2008

One of the highest ranking members of the Bavarian Illuminati – a close personal friend of Adam Weishaupt, and a good recruiter over the Alps into Switzerland – was Thomas Maria Baron De Bassus (1742 Poschiavo, Switzerland – 1815 Sandersdorf, Germany).

His family had maintained a castle in Sandersdorf, Bavaria for centuries. It is at this castle that Baron De Bassus resided when the Bavarian authorities broke into his home and confiscated a large cache of “Original Documents” of the Illuminati. First it was Zwack’s residence in 1786, then it was de Bassus in 1787. Together the documents uncovered represent the “Original Documents”: Einige Originalschriften des Illuminatenordens (Zwack’s house), and Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften (from de Bassus’ Sandersdorf Castle).

The title page of the famous Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften, reads:

Supplement to the original writings concerning in general the Sect of the Illuminati and in particular its founder, Adam Weishaupt, former professor at Ingolstadt, documents found in the Castle of Baron Bassus at Sandersdorf during the perquisition carried out in this celebrated den of the Illuminati, published immediately by order of the Elector and deposited in the Privy Archives to be examined by all those who showed the desire to do so.

Since then Sandersdorf Castle has been relegated its place in secret society infamy. It is the origin of primary source material on what we know about the Bavarian Illuminati. What many do not know, however, is that Sandersdorf Castle was – and still is – the location of the de Bassus family brewery. Illuminati logos, indeed!
