Selling your Soul
The secret history of the world ensures that few people are aware of the coded messages contained in some famous works of art. One of the finest literary creations in history, the greatest treasure of German literature, is Faust by Goethe. It’s the story, superficially, of a man who sells his soul to the Devil in return for ultimate knowledge. In reality, the story is nothing less than an account of the Gnostic struggle for salvation, and few people were better placed to tell it than Goethe, a literary genius, polymath, and a Grand Master of the Illuminati.
Carl Jung considered Faust a key work of Hermetic and alchemical thought, and Goethe as an alchemical Magus. He said, “I regard my work on alchemy as a sign of my inner relationship to Goethe. Goethe’s secret was that he was in the grip of that process of archetypal transformation that has gone on through the centuries. He regarded his Faust as an opus magnum or divinum [great or divine work]. He called it his ‘main business’, and his whole life was enacted within the framework of this drama.”
Rudolf Steiner said that Goethe “attained the supreme mysteries.”
The story of Faust is also a coded reference to the greatest and most special of all the Illuminati’s Grand Masters – the illustrious Simon Magus. If the world had turned out well, Simon Magus would now hold the position in history that has been assigned instead to Yehoshua ben Yosef, the man better known to history as Jesus Christ.
We have illuminated Faust in the section below, and at the foot of the page we have revealed the truth about the wretched souls known as the Ignavi, and the Gnostic meaning of the children’s story The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
