The Nine Unknown Men

Watched Jodha Akhbar on weekend. I can’t believe Rashmi Bansal gave it 4.5 stars. For once, HT was better at giving movie ratings. It is a long melodramatic boring movie. And those of you who like mumbaiya lingo would get really really uncomfortable by all that urdu and decent poetic language by the end of 3.5 hrs (which seemed like eternity). One thing good about the movie is that it is very romantic. But, thats all.

Anyways, so as to escape from assignments and schools, I googled Jodha Bai name controversy and ended up with an interesting read from this site. I especially liked this idea: “One can imagine the extraordinary importance of secret knowledge in the hands of nine men benefiting directly from experiments, studies and documents accumulated over a period of more than 2,000 years. What can have been the aim of these men? Not to allow methods of destruction to fall into the hands of unqualified persons and to pursue knowledge which would benefit mankind. Their numbers would be renewed by co-option, so as to preserve the secrecy of techniques handed down from ancient times.” To think about it, wars have been the main inspiration/motivation for most technological advancement. To save from the risk of creation and mis-use of methods of destruction, Asoka may/mayn’t have created the Secret Society. What interests me is that he, even though a Buddhist himself, didn’t believe that people could be trusted enough to not use technology in evil deeds or that it is inevitable to stop creation even for the reason of destruction. How would it have been had we not hidden the 2000yrs of knowledge pool?

According to occult lore, the Nine Unknown Men are a two millennia-old secret society founded by the Indian Emperor Asoka 273 BC. The legend of The Nine Unknown Men goes back to the time of the Emperor Asoka, who was the grandson of Chandragupta. Ambitious like his ancestor whose achievements he was anxious to complete, he conquered the region of Kalinga which lay between what is now Calcutta and Madras. The Kalingans resisted and lost 100,000 men in the battle. At the sight of this massacre Asoka was overcome and resolved to follow the path of non-violence.

He converted to Buddhism after the massacre, the Emperor founded the society of the Nine to preserve and develop knowledge that would be dangerous to humanity if it fell into the wrong hands. It is said that the Emperor Asoka once aware of the horrors of war, wished to forbid men ever to put their intelligence to evil uses. During his reign natural science, past and present, was vowed to secrecy. Henceforward, and for the next 2,000 years, all researches, ranging from the structure of matter to the techniques employed in collective psychology, were to be hidden behind the mystical mask of a people commonly believed to be exclusively concerned with ecstasy and supernatural phenomena. Asoka founded the most powerful secret society on earth: that of the Nine Unknown Men.

One can imagine the extraordinary importance of secret knowledge in the hands of nine men benefiting directly from experiments, studies and documents accumulated over a period of more than 2,000 years. What can have been the aim of these men? Not to allow methods of destruction to fall into the hands of unqualified persons and to pursue knowledge which would benefit mankind. Their numbers would be renewed by co-option, so as to preserve the secrecy of techniques handed down from ancient times.

Each of the Nine is supposedly responsible for guarding and improving a single book. These books each deal with a different branch of potentially hazardous knowledge. Traditionally, the books are said to cover the following subjects:

The Nine Books

  1. Propaganda and Psychological warfare is a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behavior of large numbers of people. Instead of impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense presents information in order to influence its audience. It is the most dangerous of all sciences, as it is capable of moulding mass opinion. It would enable anyone to govern the whole world.
  2. Physiology is the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of living organisms. The book of The Nine included instructions on how to perform the “touch of death (death being caused by a reversal of the nerve-impulse).” One account has Judo being a product of material leaked from this book.
  3. Microbiology, and, according to more recent speculation, Biotechnology. In some versions of the myth, the waters of the Ganges are purified with special microbes designed by the Nine and released into the river at a secret base in the Himalayas. Multitudes of pilgrims, suffering from the most appalling diseases, bathe in them without harming the healthy ones. The sacred waters purify everything. Their strange properties have been attributed to the fact that they contain bacteriophages. But why should these not be formed in the Bramaputra, the Amazon or the Seine?
  4. Alchemy, including the transmutation of metals. In India, there is a persistent rumor that during times of drought or other natural disasters temples and religious organizations receive large quantities of gold from an unknown source. The mystery is further deepened with the fact that the sheer quantity of gold throughout the country in temples and with kings cannot be properly accounted for, seeing that India has few gold mines.
  5. Communication, including communication with extraterrestrials.
  6. Gravitation. Book 6 The Vaiminaka sastra is said to contain the instructions necessary to build a Vimana, sometimes referred to as the “ancient UFOs of India.”
  7. Cosmology, the capacity to travel at enormous speeds through spacetime fabric, and time-travel; including intra- and inter-universal trips.
  8. Light, the capacity to increase and decrease the speed of light, to use it as a weapon by concentrating it in a certain direction etc.
  9. Sociology, including rules concerning the evolution of societies and how to predict their downfall.

Among conspiracy theorists the Nine Unknown is often cited as one of the oldest and most powerful secret societies in the world. Unusually for the conspiracy subculture, the image of the group is largely though not entirely benign. Theosophists also believe the Nine to be a real organization that is working for the good of the world.”

  1. The eminent international economist Mark Faber, in a cable news show, recently kept harping on and on about how the only great economy and banking system is with India and the Central Bank of India. What he knows (and most people don’t) is that the OLDEST and MOST POWERFUL original secret society is India’s the Nine Unknown Men. They are the head of the Illuminati, and are the spiritual controllers of all secret societies such as the Skull and Bones, the Freemasons, Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, Book and Snake, etc. They are the true enlightened ones and many believe their power stemmed from Alien encounters who shared with them scientific knowledge many millennia ago. How can any human created secret society compete with that?

  2. hmm… dunno bout them being head of any other secret society… bt i believe ure rite bout the “alien encounters” stuff…. from wat i understand according to our scriptures all the gods,demigods n godly beings live in different galaxies/planes… so technically tat makes them aliens….n i do believe tat ashoka was visited by a being from a different world who imparted knowledge to him… so its rather plausible tat they possess knowledge well beyond the scope of our understanding…..

  4. The Nine Unknown Men is the oldest secret society in the world and is reported to be more than ten-millennia-old secret society reputedly founded by the Indian Emperor Asoka. According to the legend, the Emperor founded the society of the Nine to preserve and develop knowledge (mostly scientific) that would be dangerous to humanity if it fell into the wrong hands. Some versions of the story include an additional motivation for the Emperor to conceal scientific knowledge: remnants of the Rama Empire, an Indian version of Atlantis, which according to Hindu scripture was destroyed by advanced weaponry 15,000 years ago. Furthermore from these same sources described, the more recent war between the German Aryans using the Hindu Swastika as its symbol and the International Jewish community using another ancient Hindu Symbol of the Star of David, represented a schism and a break within the ranks of the Nine Unknown Men itself, resulting in an embryological global struggle for supremacy over the global economy, all scientific knowledge and progress, and global domination generally. The teachings of Madame Blavatsky itself predicted this break within the ranks of the secret society the Nine Unknown Men itself, as well as the bloody conflict which engulfed the entire world during World War I and more clearly, in World War II. Madame Blavatsky’s teachings regarding the Nine Unknown Men and their philosophies were reported to have influenced greatly the following individuals of the last century, who are all reported to have been either knowing or unwitting Servants of the Nine Unknown Men: Anagarika Dharmapala, Sir Edwin Arnold, Alice Bailey, Guy Ballard, L. Frank Baum, Annie Besant, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Chris Carter, Col. James Churchward, Aleister Crowley, Wayne Dyer, Albert Einstein, James Ensor, Dion Fortune, Dynam-Victor Fumet, Mahatma Gandhi, Max Heindel, Adolf Hitler, Geraldine Innocente, Raghavan Iyer, James Joyce, Wassily Kandinsky, Henry Miller, Alfred Kinsey, Ekkirala Krishnamacharya, C.W.

    [edit] History
    The secret society was first described in 19th century works by Louis Jacolliot, and in the 20th century by the writer and Theosophist Talbot Mundy. In 1960, Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier wrote about the Nine Unknown Men in their Morning of the Magicians. In their works, they claimed that the society occasionally revealed itself to wise outsiders such as Pope Sylvester II who was said to have received, among other things, training in supernatural powers, advanced scientific data, and the first computer (described in the literature as “a robotic talking head” from the group. In more recent times, according to this circle, the Nine assisted humanity by revealing the secret of the cholera vaccine, as well as hundreds of thousands of more vaccines and medical cures distributed variously through either “The Bearers of the Swastika” (the Aryans) or the “Bearers of the Star of David” (the International Jewish community, but ultimately, all of them Hindu but not even knowing that the Nine were ultimately controlling both of their groups.

    Among conspiracy theorists the Nine Unknown is often cited as the oldest and most powerful secret society in the world. Unusually for conspiracy theorists, the image of the group is largely, though not entirely, benign. Theosophists also believe the Nine to be a real organization that is working for the good of the world.

    Some modern Indian scientists such as Jagdish Chandra Bose were said to believe in or even to be members of the Nine although documentation on this issue is predictably scant. Believers in the Nine also point to the mysterious iron pillar of Delhi, which they claim to have been constructed at a time before the technology to create it existed in common circulation. However, this is disputed by other scholars and researchers.[citation needed]. Various conspiracy theories speculate as to who are current Nine members, but that secret is more closely guarded than any other secret on Earth, possibly even from some Members of the Nine itself except for its Supreme Leader (the theory of “compartmentalization,” often used by Secret Intelligence Services throughout the world for security purposes).

    [edit] Suspected Members
    Indian scientists are occasionally rumored to be members of the Nine Unknown Men, and from time to time, if a Westerner should visit India and then do something astounding, he is considered to have had their help (as was the case with Pope Sylvester II, Jesus Christ, and also Alexandre Emile John Yersin, who knew Louis Pasteur and Pierre Paul Emile Roux, who respectively created vaccines for rabies and diphtheria). There are thousands of other examples. As stated above, Madame Blavatsky’s teachings regarding the Nine Unknown Men and their philosophies were reported to have influenced greatly the following individuals of the last century, who are all reported to have been either knowing or unwitting Servants of the Nine Unknown Men: Anagarika Dharmapala, Sir Edwin Arnold, Alice Bailey, Guy Ballard, L. Frank Baum, Annie Besant, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Chris Carter, Col. James Churchward, Aleister Crowley, Wayne Dyer, Albert Einstein, James Ensor, Dion Fortune, Dynam-Victor Fumet, Mahatma Gandhi, Max Heindel, Adolf Hitler, Geraldine Innocente, Raghavan Iyer, James Joyce, Wassily Kandinsky, Henry Miller, Alfred Kinsey, Ekkirala Krishnamacharya, C.W. Leadbeater, Guido List, Sybil Leek, Heinrich Himmler, Howard Philips Lovecraft, Leopoldo Lugones, Piet Mondrian, Boris Pasternak, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Nicholas Roerich, George W. Russell, Alexander Scriabin, Rudolf von Sebottendorf, Swami Sivananda, Rudolf Steiner, Sun Ra, Max Theon, Samael Aun Weor, The Mars Volta, William Butler Yeats, and thousands more.

    [edit] Pope Sylvester II
    There is an extraordinary case of one of the most mysterious figures in Western history: the Pope Sylvester II, known also by the name of Gerbert d’Aurillac. Born in the Auvergne in 920 (d. 1003) Gerbert was a Benedictine monk, professor at the University of Rheims, Archbishop of Ravenna and Pope by the grace of Ortho III. He is supposed to have spent some time in Spain, after which a mysterious voyage brought him to India where he is reputed to have acquired various kinds of skills which stupified his entourage. For example, he possessed in his palace a bronze head which answered yes or no to questions put to it on politics or the general position of Christianity. According to Sylvester II this was a perfectly simple operation corresponding to a two-figure calculation, and was performed by an automaton similar to our modern binary machines. This “magic” head was destroyed when Sylvester died, and all the information it imparted carefully concealed.

    In the cybernetics journal, “Computers and Automation” of October 1954, the following comment appeared: “We must suppose that he (Sylvester) was possessed of extraordinary knowledge and the most remarkable mechanical skill and inventiveness. This speaking head must have been fashioned ‘under a certain conjunction of stars occurring at the exact moment when all the planets were starting on their courses.’ Neither the past, nor the present nor the future entered into it, since this invention apparently far exceeded in its scope its rival, the perverse “mirror on the wall” of the Queen, the precursor of our modern electronic brain. Naturally it was widely asserted that Gerbert was only able to produce such a machine head because he was in league with the Devil and had sworn eternal allegiance to him.”

    [edit] Louis Jacolliot
    It was not until the nineteenth century that this mystery was referred to again in the works of the French writer Jacolliot. Jacolliot was French Consul at Calcutta under the Second Empire. He wrote some quite important prophetic works, comparable, if not superior to those of Jules Verne. He also left several books dealing with the great secrets of the human race. A great many occult writers, prophets and miracle-workers have borrowed from his writings which, completely neglected in France, are well known in Russia. Jacolliot states categorically that the Society of Nine did actually exist. And, to make it all the more intriguing, he refers in the this connection to certain techniques, unimaginable in 1860, such as, for example, the liberation of energy, sterilization by radiation and psychological warfare.

    [edit] Alexandre Emile John Yersin
    Yersin, one of Pasteur and de Roux’s closest collaborators, was entrusted, it seems, with certain biological secrets when he visited Madras in 1890, and following the instructions he received was able to prepare a serum against cholera and the plague. The Nine came to the rescue of the civilization from these deadly diseases which they knew if not kiboshed would bring the human race to extinction.

    Writer and Theosophist Talbot Mundy titled of one his Jimgrim novels The Nine Unknown, propagating the story.

    The society is mentioned several times in The Illuminatus! Trilogy and the bronze head is a resource card in the Illuminati card game. Many consider the Nine Unknown Men to be the parent of the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the Priori of Sion, Satanists, Kabbalah and Jewish groups, Aryan secret societies such as Skull and Bones developed in Bavaria Germany, Islamic groups, and all other secret societies.

    The Nine Unknown are also mentioned in the Strugatsky Brothers’ novel A Billion Years Before the End of the World as one of the possible forces behind the mysterious intervention in scientists’ work.

    Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite cited the story of the Nine Unknown Men as an influence on the TV show Heroes in an interview. [1]

    There is a reference to the Nine Unknown Men in the song “Putta Block” by The Fall.

    The book Legend of the 9 paid a homage to the Nine by expanding the story context into a modern setting.

  5. What is the greatest cover-up in history?

    Can one discovery change the destiny of humanity and restore sanity and harmony to the planet? Who is behind the thrones of governments, religion, science and big business? Is the “New World Order” really something new? Is there an occult history of America and the world? Why do governments and religions and businesses use occult symbolism? Know what secret societies and freemasons have been keeping from you for thousands of years. Over 30,000 surviving ancient texts refer to Atlantis and alien visitation. Can they all be wrong? Have we been told the truth about our origins, our forefathers and Earth’s past?
