The Man Who Died Twice


To die twice is not a commonplace occurrence. Yet this is what happened to a hero of the boudoir, who was in the revolutionary France at the height of his popularity, and figured in the dreams of all the fine ladies of Marie Antoinette’s Court. His name was Jean François Autié, his alias Leonard, and he was a barber by profession.

He was nicknamed “le Marquis Leonard” to distinguish him from his brother, “le Chevalier”, whose office was confined to the cutting of hair. In 1791, his gigantic headdresses, two feet in height, adorned with a collection of accessories and supported by a framework of steel wire, were very much “en vogue’. Leonard gave them ridiculous names, like “valgalas” or “toquets en lubie”, which the ladies thought enchanting. 
“If Leonard was not a perfect imbecile, with neither refinement nor taste,” the historian G. Lenotre wrote in his book The Flight of Marie Antoinette, “he must certainly have been a profound philosopher, and have spent hours of exquisite enjoyment in observing the measureless folly of those brainless grandes dames, whom he treated with the rudeness of a slave-trader, being repaid by them with all the more idolatry and admiration.”
When a woman was of sufficient importance to receive his ministrations,  the artist would arrive – always in a hurry – and take a quick look at his client. He would appear to study the figure of the patient for some minutes, and then, as he felt the inspiration come, he would pounce upon the first objects that came to hand: a cabbage, a scarf, a sponge, some apples, a child’s toy boat.
With these accessories he would build up his extravagant edifice on the head of his delighted victim. Thus it was that the Duchesse de Luynes presented herself one day in the royal circle with one of her chemises in her hair, an idea which was thought to be “quite too delightfully foolish”, and that Madame de Matignon made her appearance with her locks dressed a la Jardinière, carrying on her head an artichoke, a head of green broccoli, a pretty carrot and a few little radishes. Rousseau had made nature fashionable; or, as one of the ladies put it: “Vegetables are so much more natural than flowers, are they not?”
The noblest and the most charming heads passed through the hands of Leonard. Every day his fingers gently touched those pink and perfumed necks that were so soon to be torn by the steel triangle of the guillotine. In the days of the Terror this man must have been tortured by horrible visions every evening as he read in the gazettes the account of the executions of the previous day. Visions, for instance, of the horrible basket under the guillotine in which were heaped the long curls, fair and dark, that his own golden comb had so often smoothed.

Ancient Technology: Unexplained Mysteries of Pyramid of The Sun and Mesa Verde


Mesa Verde was abandoned early in the 14th century, probably because there was insufficient water to serve a community that, by now, had grown very better access to water now came to be preferred.

Pre- Columbian people, who as yet have not been indentified, began to build an extraordinary example of planned urban development. They called it Teotihuacan (‘Place of the Gods’), it was situated in a fertile offshoot of the Valley of Mexico, north-east of modern Mexico City, In the fifth century AD, when Teotihuacan was at its height, most of the it built along in impressive causeway, lying north to south, it was the greatest  city and Meso-America.

YouTube - Nazis: The Occult Conspiracy (1998) -Full Length Documentary


Nazis: The Occult Conspiracy is a documentary on how Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime made use of ancient mysticism and occultism to win the war. The Nazi's also used occult mind control techniques to brainwash Germans to perceive themselves as the master-race.
Astrology, Reincarnation, a new blood religion. In this chilling yet fascinating glimpse at recent historical events, discover how Nazi beliefs were based on a perversion of ancient myths, pagan lore and the occult. In their quest to create an Aryan super race, the Nazis left no myth or religion unexploited, using astrological forecasts to plan battles; pendulums to locate allied battleships; the prophesies of Nostradamus to frighten the Allies, and sacred symbols, such as Nordic runes, to inspire their warriors to battle. Nazis: The Occult Conspiracy explores the disturbing ways the Third Reich linked occult practices with political aims and created a reign of terror unparalleled in history.
Nazis: The Occult Conspiracy, directed by Tracy Atkinson and Joan Baran, narrated by Malcolm McDowell, is an English language 1998 Discovery Channel documentary regarding Nazi occultism.

Enigmatic Facts or Fortean Fantasies? | Socyberty

 by Bill M. Tracer

For as long as memory serves, the strange, the mysterious, the enigmatic has attracted my attention and excited my imagination. From my earliest days as a child, I found myself naturally gravitating toward the unexplained, the unusual; you know those unique bits of reality that conventional science just never could pin down.
Of course, most of those “conventional” type scientists don’t even try to explain this kind of stuff, except to deny its existence, or to pigeonhole it as fringe or pseudo without even really looking into any of the supportive data. As they would put it; it was swamp gas reflecting off of the planet Venus, accentuated by the distant lighthouse shining through the fog. Never mind that at the time our hypothetical “incident” took place, Venus had not yet risen into the sky, and it was a clear night in a decidedly non-swamp environment.
So they just pass it off, saying things like, “If Bigfoot’s real, then why hasn’t anyone ever found tangible evidence of one? If UFOs were real, then why haven’t they landed on the White House lawn? If secret societies really existed, wouldn’t there be whistle-blowers?”
What they fail to see is that if they bothered to actually examine the data on these subjects, they’d find there is considerable tangible evidence in every one of these cases.

Dissolution of The Teutonic Knights by The Nazis | Socyberty

 

In 1938, Germany’s Nazi regime outlawed the German Order and requisitioned all its possessions. Austria followed suit the same year. But this requisitioning of goods was only the last act in a long story of misappropriation of the order’s history to suit Nazi ideals.
The Teutonic Knights were a church order established in 1198 as a consequence of the Third Crusade and the disastrous Emperor’s Crusade which followed. The order’s membership was limited to knights and exclusively German knights at that. The order took over the rules of the Knights Templar for its military arm and the rules of the Order of St. John for its charitable works until it worked out its own rules a hundred years later.
