The Real Secrets and Beliefs: "The Goat of Mendes"
WARNING CONTENT- Sexually Explicit!
It is considered dangerous to speak the name of the devil because he might hear you and decide to make evil tortures, possession, and strange paranormal activity and just weird things happen to you.
Many think the full term is "Speak of the Devil and he shall surely appear."
In modern Luciferianism, Lilith is considered a consort of Lucifer and is identified with the figure of Babaylon. She is said to come from the mud and dust, and is known as the Queen of the Succubi. When she and Lucifer mate, they form an androgynous being called "Baphomet" or the "Goat of Mendes," also known in Luciferianism as the "God of Witches."
"The Image of the Goat of Mendes, Mendez Goat, Sigil of Baphomet, or Sabbatic Goat truly revealed!
By LISA LEE HARP WAUG
THIS Haunted America Tours ARTICLE ... Is Not recommended for children under 17 years of age because it soley deals with several terms used in parapsychology and tragic and sexual events used to explain these real paranormal ritual events. Readers discrection is advised.
The true image and symbol of the great Baphomet is believed by some to be an imagined pagan deity, (i.e., a product of Christian folklore concerning pagans) revived in the 19th century as a figure of great evil and disgust and a pure sign of torture and Satanism.
And of course the horrible evil god of the witches. This known bastard of a horrid beast was believed to have copulated with them in the Black Mass orgy's. And while performing sinister magical rites as they swore alliances to him with only a thumb stuck in their butts and the other in their mouth.
And to him alone they gave themselves to his cold goat phallus. And as there at that fatal moment he was always alone their Grand Wise Master.
The horrid image of what we know today first appeared in a late 12th-century Provençal poem as a corruption of "Muhammad", but later it appeared as a term for a pagan idol in trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar in the early 1300s.
Many believed that through this union with this the old demon gods that survived from the past, such as The Neo-Assyrian period, circa 800-550 BCE. "Probably from Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), northern Iraq" Demon Pazuzu. Whose powers were used for a perfect balance between good and evil. In the candlelight cells they practiced forbidden dark homosexual acts in the name of black sex magic. This all done while reciting and speaking aloud secret magical incantations between themselves under the watchful eyes of the Baphomet and the other nights.
Many believed they would simply hold what we call today a simple magical circle jerk. Several members possibly 13 at a time or more, some watching two or three other males sexually pleasuring themselves. the others stood around and either participated or just masturbated in silence. Some shouted out the things they wanted in life others delved deeper into the sexual pleasure alone.
But at the exact climax they screamed out aloud over the others chants and grunts and growns the great secret name of their evil god, and asked him to grant them their favor or deepest wishes.
And it is believed that by doing this rite of masterbatory magic their devil god so hears them and grants the desired effect to them.
And it was also believed that such occurred in great mass Witches Sabbaths on high mountain tops in northern Europe. Men and woman bound in maghical sexual delights before the dark lord sharing their sexual energy for one purpose. To make a world where the moment of ecstasy tajt lasted for ever. Not unlike trance music of today the Sabbaths and Templar rituals all must have ended in exhaustion and screams of ones desire.
However, in the 19th century the name Baphomet came into popular English-speaking consciousness with the publication of various works of pseudo-history that tried to link the Knights Templar with conspiracy theories elaborating on their suppression.
The name Baphomet then became associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" image hand drawn and designed by Eliphas Lévi.
Baphomet, in Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie 1855
The true image of the great Goat of Mendes, Mendez Goat, Sigil of Baphomet, or Sabbatic Goat By Eliphas Lévi
Eliphas Lévi, born Alphonse Louis Constant, (February 8, 1810 - May 31, 1875) was a French occult author and purported magician.
"Eliphas Lévi," the name under which he published his books, was his attempt to translate or transliterate his given names "Alphonse Louis" into Hebrew although he was not Jewish. His second wife was French sculptress Marie-Noémi Cadiot.
Lévi considered the Baphomet to be a depiction of the absolute in symbolic form and explicated in detail his symbolism in the drawing that served as the frontispiece: "The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah.
This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The beast's head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes.
The long slender rod standing instead of a penis symbolizes eternal life, the body covered with scales the water, the semi-circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile.
Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences." Levi called his image "The Goat of Mendes", presumably following Herodotus' account that the god of Mendes — the Greek name for Djedet, Egypt — was depicted with a goat's face and legs. Herodotus relates how all male goats were held in great reverence by the Mendesians, and how in his time a woman publicly copulated with a goat. However the deity that was venerated at Egyptian Mendes was actually a ram deity Banebdjed (literally Ba of the lord of djed, and titled "the Lord of Mendes"), who was the soul of Osiris.
Levi combined the images of what some to believe either the Tarot of Marseilles Devil card and refigured the ram Banebdjed as a he-goat, further imagined by him as "copulator in Anep and inseminator in the district of Mendes".
Others believe it might be directly stolen and a stylized version of the ancient Neo-Assyrian period, circa 800-550 BCE, considered haunted demonic statue of the dark god Pazuzu.
Pazuzu is associated to Assyrian and Babylonian mythology
Egyptian and the direct Neo-Assyrian period, connections aside, Lévi's depiction, for all its modern fame, does not match the historical descriptions from the Templar trials, although it is akin to some grotesques found on Templar churches, or, more specifically, to Viollet-le-Duc's vivid gargoyles that were added to Notre Dame de Paris about the same time as Lévi's illustration.
Levi's now-familiar image of a "Sabbatic Goat" shows parallels with works by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya, who more than once painted a "Witch's Sabbath"; in the version ca 1821-23, El gran cabrón now at the Prado, a group of seated women offer their dead infant children to a seated goat.
The wind demon Pazuzu is often depicted as a combination of animal and human parts. He has the body of a man, the head of a lion or dog, eagle-like taloned feet, two pairs of wings, a scorpion's tail, and a serpentine penis. He is often depicted with his right hand pointing upward and his left hand downward. The position of the hands means respectively life and death (or creation and destruction).
Pazuzu, the demon in the 1973 film The Exorcist -- At the beginning of the book and film The Exorcist, when Father Merrin is at the site of an archaelogical dig in Northern Iraq, the menacing sculpted figure is Pazuzu, whom he had battled in an exorcism several years earlier.

Lévi was the son of a shoemaker in Paris; he attended a seminary and began to study to enter the Roman Catholic priesthood. However, while at the seminary he fell in love, and left without being ordained. He wrote a number of minor religious works: Des Moeurs et des Doctrines du Rationalisme en France ("Of the Moral Customs and Doctrines of Rationalism in France", 1839) was a tract within the cultural stream of the Counter-Enlightenment. La Mère de Dieu ("The Mother of God", 1844) followed and, after leaving the seminary, two radical tracts, L'Evangile du Peuple ("The Gospel of the People," 1840), and Le Testament de la Liberté ("The Testament of Liberty"), published in the year of revolutions, 1848, led to two brief prison sentences.
In 1853, Lévi visited England, where he met the novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who was interested in Rosicrucianism as a literary theme and was the president of a minor Rosicrucian order.
Levi's first treatise on magic appeared in 1854 under the title Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie, and was translated into English by Arthur Edward Waite as Transcendental Magic, its Doctrine and Ritual. Its famous opening lines present the single essential theme of Occultism and gives some of the flavor of its atmosphere: Behind the veil of all the hieratic and mystical allegories of ancient doctrines, behind the darkness and strange ordeals of all initiations, under the seal of all sacred writings, in the ruins of Nineveh or Thebes, on the crumbling stones of old temples and on the blackened visage of the Assyrian or Egyptian sphinx, in the monstrous or marvelous paintings which interpret to the faithful of India the inspired pages of the Vedas, in the cryptic emblems of our old books on alchemy, in the ceremonies practised at reception by all secret societies, there are found indications of a doctrine which is everywhere the same and everywhere carefully concealed.
In 1861, he published a sequel, La Clef des Grands Mystères (The Key to the Great Mysteries). Further magical works by Lévi include Fables et Symboles (Stories and Images), 1862, and La Science des Esprits (The Science of Spirits), 1865. In 1868, he wrote Le Grand Arcane, ou l'Occultisme Dévoilé (The Great Secret, or Occultism Unveiled); this, however, was only published posthumously in 1898. Lévi's version of magic became a great success, especially after his death.
Eliphas Levi's Tetragrammaton pentagram, which he considered to be a symbol of the microcosm, or human being.
That Spiritualism was popular on both sides of the Atlantic from the 1850s contributed to this success. His magical teachings were free from obvious fanaticisms, even if they remained rather murky; he had nothing to sell, and did not pretend to be the inititate of some ancient or fictitious secret society. He incorporated the Tarot cards into his magical system, and as a result the Tarot has been an important part of the paraphernalia of Western magicians.
He had a deep impact on the magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and later on the ex-Golden Dawn member Aleister Crowley. He was also the first to declare that a pentagram or five-pointed star with one point down and two points up represents "bad", while a pentagram with one point up and two points down is "good". It was largely through the occultists inspired by him that Lévi is remembered as one of the key founders of the twentieth century revival of magic.
Levi's works are filled with various definitions for "Magic" and the "Magician": Magic
"To practice magic is to be a quack; to know magic is to be a sage."-from The Threshold of Magical Science * "Magic is the divinity of man achieved in union with faith..."-TMS Magician * "He looks on the wicked as invalids whom one must pity and cure; the world, with its errors and vices, is to him God's hospital, and he wishes to serve in it."-KoM
"They are without fears and without desires, dominated by no falsehood, sharing no error, loving without illusion, suffering without impatience, reposing in the quietude of eternal thought..... a Magus cannot be ignorant, for magic implies superiority, mastership, majority, and majority signifies emancipation by knowledge.
The Magus welcomes pleasure, accepts wealth, deserves honour, but is never the slave of one of them; he knows how to be poor, to abstain, and to suffer; he endures oblivion willingly because he is lord of his own happiness, and expects or fears nothing from the caprice of fortune.
He can love without being beloved; he can create imperishable treasures, and exalt himself above the level of honours or the prizes of the lottery.
He possesses that which he seeks, namely, profound peace. He regrets nothing which must end, but remembers with satisfaction that he has met with good in all. His hope is a certitude, for he knows that good is eternal and evil transitory.
He enjoys solitude, but does not fly the society of man; he is a child with children, joyous with the young, staid with the old, patient with the foolish, happy with the wise. He smiles with all who smile, and mourns with all who weep; applauding strength, he is yet indulgent to weakness; offending no one, he has himself no need to pardon, for he never thinks himself offended; he pities those who misconceive him, and seeks an opportunity to serve them; by the force of kindness only does he avenge himself on the ungrateful..."-TMS
"Judge not; speak hardly at all; love and act."-KoM
Levi identified three fundamental principles of magic:
1. That the material universe is only a small part of total reality, which includes many other planes and modes of consciousness. Full knowledge and full power in the universe are only attainable through awareness of these other aspects of reality. One of the most important of these levels or aspects of reality is the "astral light", a cosmic fluid which may be molded by will into physical forms.
"One can only define the unknown by its supposed and supposable relations with the known."-from The Key of the Mysteries
"The divine ideal of the ancient world made the civilization which came to an end, and one must not despair of seeing the god of our barbarous fathers become the devil of our more enlightened children."-KoM 2.
That human willpower is a real force, capable of achieving absolutely anything, from the mundane to the miraculous.
"Nothing can resist the will of man when he knows what is true and wills what is good."
"The will of a just man is the Will of God Himself and the Law of Nature." * AXIOM 20:
"A chain of iron is less difficult to break than a chain of flowers." *
"Succeed in not fearing the lion, and the lion will fear YOU. Say to suffering, 'I will that you shall become a pleasure,' and it will prove to be such-- and even more than a pleasure, it will be a blessing."
3. That the human being is a microcosm, a miniature of the macrocosmic universe, and the two are fundamentally linked. Causes set in motion on one level may equally have effects on another.
"Man is the God of the world, and God is the man of Heaven."-KoM

Meet the people of Ghostly Talk
Doug (a/k/a "Skizz") has been interested in paranormal topics ever since checking out a book about witchcraft from his elementary school library. He has read many books about paranormal subjects, with his favorite topics being out of body experiences, Edgar Cayce, ESP, prophesy, and ghosts. While surfing the internet in 2001, he was happy to learn that other folks actually went prowling about cemeteries and haunted places looking for ghosts. Since then, he has been an avid ghost hunter. Doug had done terrestrial radio before at WTWR, the station at the University of Detroit. He received his Bachelor's degree in Management Sciences and Information Systems from the University of Detroit. Upon meeting Scott L on ghost hunts, Doug suggested doing an internet talk show about ghost hunting. The premier of Ghostly Talk in February 2002 streamed to a total listening audience of one (1) computer, though two (2) people were listening. Doug continues to ghost hunt and co-host Ghostly Talk from Fraser, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, Scott L. became interested in the paranormal as a young child when he bought his first book 'Haunted Houses' by Larry Kettelkamp at a garage sale for $.25. Intrigued and frightened by this book, Scott L. developed an adolescent interest in the paranormal that rooted itself firmly into the little boys mind through the present day:
"For a while, with college going on and being a professional musician, I didn't have time to really pursue the paranormal field as extensively as I wanted to."
It was when Scott L graduated from Wayne State University with a major in Operational Logistics and minor in Information Systems Development that he now had the time to pursue his passion.
How did he get into radio though? 'Honestly, I have wanted to do radio for a very long time. I had some downtime from playing music about 5 years ago, and it was a something that went through my mind a lot. Unfortunately, I had no contacts at the time to break in and try to pursue it. When I met Doug after doing a lot of ghosthunting and talking about the paranormal, he asked if I wanted to try to do an internet talk show on the subject(s), I jumped at the opportunity.'
In addition to being one of the creators of Ghostly Talk, Scott L. is the webmaster/caretaker for the now defunct speed metal band Holy Terror.
'To Do The Dream Is Not A Dream, It Is A Must.' -Scott L.
