Hurley documented having imaginary friends all of which where once and now well known figures. What exactly did Hurley mean by imaginary friends? As Hurley is not around to answer that question himself we can only guess. It could be that Hurley admired these people and their beliefs , I suppose they do all have loose connections. Or could be something more sinister? Could this group of people/ imaginary friends actually be past and present members of Dark onto Light?
This is the first part of Hurley’s imaginary friends list each with their own a short description- we can see each of these people had/has connections with the occult and possibly hold the same beliefs of the cult Dark Onto Light itself.
Houdini (1874 – 1926)
Most people have heard of Houdini- and he’s inarguably the most famous magician that ever lived but did you know he was very interested in the occult. Although his main focus was exposing fraud’s claiming to be psychics he originally became interested in spiritualism when he attempted to have a medium contact his deceased mother.
However what I find most interesting is that such a skilled magician has made an appearance on Hurley’s list. Occording to Manly P. Hall, a mystic and mason explained that highly gifted magicians performed their magic with help from a demonic spirit who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon.
“Magic is the sole science not accepted by scientists, because they can’t understand it.”
Beyoncé has frequently been connected with the Illuminati with many rumours circulating that she is in fact inline with this this secret society .Beyonce has been accused of devil worshipping along with her husband Jay-Z with many illuminati conspiracy theorists trying to debunk signs and symbols used in her music videos as well as musical performances ( type in Beyoncé and The Illuminati and you’ll see many ‘ proof’ videos). Illuminati conspiracists have even gone so far as to say Beyoncé ‘s stage alter ego Sasha Fierce, is actually a demon that possesses Beyoncé when she’s performing.
Beyoncé quote: ” Power is not given yo you. You have to take it.”
William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939)
William Butler Yeats, an Irish poet had a deep interest the occult, metaphysics and paranormal activities and he often displayed these interests in his poems.He spent a lifetime seeking contact with the spirit world through occult researches and practices that informed much of what he did and wrote.
Yeats joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn- a secret society that practised ritual magic.
“And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?”
Jimmy Page, the guitarist from the band Led Zeppelin is probably not a surprise entry on Hurley’s list of ‘ imaginary friends’. Led Zeppelin’s stairway to heaven is infamous for it’s satanic message when played backward. Many of the bands songs contain occult and satanic symbolism.
Jimmy page also admired the evil occultist Aleister Crowley and even brought his former house which Crowley used to practice satanic rituals.
“Crowley didn’t have a very high opinion of women, and I don’t think he was wrong.”
Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
Soren Kierkegaard is perhaps not as well known as some others on this list but Kierkegaard was a a danish philosopher who is often described as the ‘ Father of existentialism’
The possible connection with the occult satanism and even Dark Onto Light is in this philosopher’s name itself. Soren can be used as a danish euphemism for Satan and Kierkegaard is translated as church or graveyard.
Despite Kierkegaard’s writings containing religious themes he was referred to as ‘The Tragic Satan’. This is perhaps due to his belief in existentialism that went against the fundamental teachings of Christianity- believing that the existence of the individual person as a free and responsible agent determining their own development through acts of the will instead of a person’s fate being determined by God alone.
Kierkegaard quote: “The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins. Soren Kierkegaard”
Ezra Pound ( 1875-1972)
Ezra Pound was a poet and critic who at the start of his career was actually secretary to William Yeats, another literary figure on this list. It’s said one of the main reasons Pound traveled to London in 1908 was to further his acquaintance with occult teachings through William Yeats, who is well-known to have been involved in esoteric circles. Despite Pound showing skepticism toward’s some of Yeat’s occult beliefs he actually valued his teachings and went on to interact with other occult figures.
“The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.”
Helena Blavatsky ( 1831-1891)
Helena Blavatsky was a Russian occultist, medium and writer of the occult book The Secret Doctrine’ She spoke of Satan highly, believing him to be the creator and had strong connections with Masonic organisations.
Blavatsky quote: “It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.”
