Gyula Tóth Video Lecture: The Trap of False History 10 Years On (with English subtitles)

The original article titled “The Trap of False History” that was published on this site was the work of Gyula Tóth translated to English from the original Hungarian, and concerned Heribert Illig’s and Uwe Topper’s Phantom Time hypothesis in connection to the accuracy of the Hungarian chronicles. This very recently recorded lecture’s title is “The Sack of Rome, and – The Dark Ages?” and starts off by explaining the problem of the different calendars used in the world before, during and after the Middle Ages. What was the true purpose of inserting 300 years into European historiography? Was it done on purpose? In those crucial years, what significant events took place that were artifically disconnected from their original protagonists and who were these protagonists?

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

- John Stewart Mill

    Aristocracy And The Meaning Of Class Rule

    There is a great and pressing need today in general for a new and genuine aristocracy, especially among the European peoples and nations. Over the past centuries the old aristocracy has declined, degenerated, lost sight of its guiding Principle and has finally been destroyed by both intrinsic and extrinsic forces. Today we can hardly talk of there existing any true aristocracy. There exists a hierarchy which has been subverted and infiltrated, leading to “counter-aristocrats” sitting on key positions of power.

    About The Term “Traditional Authors” by Róbert Horváth

    The following text is entirely written by Róbert Horváth and is used by permission. The most eminent of the authors named “traditionalists” or “perennialists” are called “traditional authors” in Hungary. In this context, this latter expression should obviously be comprehended as contemporary, 20th or 21st century traditional authors. From the spiritual perspective – since traditionality […]

    The Subversion Of Art

    The modernistic definition of art is that art is a mirror of our society. Society – and nowadays also the global world – should be reflected in art. It is considered its duty and its very purpose, together with the firm apprehension – typical of modernism – that through progress, art has developed this important role of giving a critical and different view of how to solve societies’ imperfections. This is totally false. The problem is that art is [...]

    Style Elements of Negative Tendencies

    The following text is entirely written by Karlo Z Valois and is used by permission. 1. The War In the current era there’s a constant war between the superior and the inferior. Peace is achieved only by intellectual dominance, where hierarchical integration is perfect and the inferior, according to its degree of distance from the pure (formless) intellect is positioned appropriately. We can only talk about inferiority from the stand point of the superior. The superior, realizing a range of potentials unavailable to the [...]

    War Protocols

    This article is used by kind permission from the author Karlo Z.Valois. Perhaps the most recent texts outlining the kind of war protocol we are now addressing is Budo Shoshinsu, a collection of the most authentic moral teachings of the Japanese knights, written in the 16th Century for young samurais to teach them the foundations of bushido, “the spiritual path of the warrior”. The teachings concern the appropriate perception of death (as an opportunity for transcendence, which is apparent in everyday behavior, [...]

I did not think that you would be capable to act against the the unwritten and unfailing statutes of the gods. These are not of today, nor yesterday, but from all time, and no one knoweth when they were first put forth.

    The Fundamental Principles of the Universe and the Origin of Physical Laws by Attila Grandpierre

    In the Chaldean Magic the first realities are the primal principles: “ILU, the First Principle, the universal and mysterious source of all things, which is manifested in the trinity of ANU, the god of Time and and the World; HEA, the intelligence, which animated matter; and BEL, the demiurgus and ruler of the organized universe”. In the ancient Hungarian world-system the basic categories were the first principle of the Universe, ÉLET (the life-principle), and ILLAT (the principle of plant life), [...]

    The Force of Visualization

    It is by now well known in most spiritual circles that the quest for the Holy Grail, which Percival undertook in the powerful Grail epic, is not an outer journey but a metaphor for an inner journey; a path to self-realization. The claim, however, that the vessel(s) used in hermetism corresponds to earth, the human body and therefore the symbol of the actual Grail and the stone – Lapidem – being what often is referred to as ‘the spiritual heart’ [...]

    The Illusion Of Democracy

    Most people think of democracy as being “good”. It represents everything which most people consider valuable and precious. The modern mass media uses democracy as a label for ideas, values and principles they consider “right”. Often one sees and hears people say things like “it is my democratic right”, or “it is everyone’s democratic duty” – to vote, for example. “Sound democratic values” is another cryptic expression often used by everyone from world leaders and influencial businessmen to journalists [...]

    How can a person find the path to and begin their spiritual journey in this day and age of degeneration, corruption, spiritual darkness and universal lie? The problem of where to begin is the most common problem for almost all people today and is the first excuse not to do what needs to be done. This is true of the most mundane and simple tasks of everyday life as well as the most profound and sublime metaphysical tasks. How many [...]

    Metaphysics and the Perennial Philosophy

    This is a transcript from a lecture given by Martin Lings at the Temenos Academy. “Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll just begin my talk by mentioning – and this refers to the talk is actually called: Metaphysics and the Perennial Philosophy, metaphysics coming first, that is, but that’s not an important detail, but it explains why I begin by mentioning – that René Guénon only once – as far as I know – entered into the academic world, which he did by [...]
