and the phrase “This is wisdom” printed above it, indicating the book might be a vessel of significant ancient wisdom or knowledge.

Sounds like bullshit to me.

It sounds like bullshit to me too, but it was about satanic jews, so I thought saidit would like this story

There's no way that the baphomet image at the end is ancient, that image was drawn by Eliphas Levi in the 19th century. A reverence for Hebrew and by extension for Jewish lore is common in the modern occult movement, so I suspect that that's what this came out of. What indication is there in the first place that this is ancient?

And Levi's drawing was his interpretation of the descriptions of the baphomet statues of the Knights Templars, which was their symbolic/allegorical representation of the universe/reality, as explained in the Dwellings of the Philosophers by Fulcanelli.

Man that book and it's pictures are awesome. No one makes sweet books like that anymore. I'm sure it contains the typical thoughts of occult, but I like it as a whole as a work of art.
