Sirhan and Sex Magick

Recommended Posts

According to the Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, "the OTO was organized with 10 degrees of initiation by Dr Karl Kellner, an Austrian occultist in 1895. Its most precious secret was that of sex-magic, the techniques of utilizing the energies of sex for occult purposes."

During the 1930s, the first OTO lodge was established in the US by Wilfred Talbot Smith under instructions from Aleister Crowley. Known as Agape lodge No 2, it eventually moved from Hollywood to Pasadena where it was headed by John "Jack" Parsons, a chemical engineer and aerospace pioneer who was instrumental in the founding of both the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and of Aerojet General.

In 1939, OTO recruiter in Germany, Carl Germer, was arrested by the Gestapo and held in a concentration camp, only to be released through the intervention of the US Consul and inevitably winding up in the US. There seems little reason for the US to come to the aid of Germer unless he had utility for counter-intelligence activities. Some believe he had in reality, been a German spy all along.

Many have identified the "most precious" secret of OTO as being the Star Sapphire - a sex magik ritual, It is represented by the two-triangle earth hexagram, and looks very much the same as a Star of David.

One page of Sirhan Sirhan's notebook, written during the early months of 1968, contains three stars and three triangles, with the first two triangles pointing down; the third pointing up.

Underneath the stars, we find the words, "triune" and "saffire". Here then, is the key - "saffire" being the phonetic spelling of "sapphire". What Sirhan had drawn were not Stars of David as a manifestation of his enmity to Israel. They were Star Sapphires. Not even the triangles were mere doodles, but contain various meanings within gnostic teaching depending on which way they point. "Triune" according to the same teachings is a description of man as being made of body, soul and spirit.

Sirhan's phonetic spelling of "sapphire" strongly suggests he was not teaching himself sex magick from a book - but rather that he was writing only that which he'd heard spoken. To put it another way, this is evidence of the "programming" of Sirhan - with sex being the carrot (so to speak).

To add weight to this theory, a few pages later, Sirhan has written

Crowley's Book of Lies describes the ritual of the Star Sapphire in Chapter 36. In Chapter 44 we find the Mass of the Phoenix - another sex magick ritual.
