“endeavoured to … incarnate a physical aspect of Babylon, the Scarlet Woman of the Book of Revelations (17:3-6). They believed that Babylon was the herald of the new Age of Horus, and that Revelations was the understandably negative interpretation by those of the dying Age of Osiris.”
The gist of it was that Parsons desired to take the spirit of Babylon, the “Whore of Babylon,” and invest it in a human being. The idea was to create a child in the spiritual world, and then call down the spiritual baby and direct it into a human womb. When born, this child would incarnate the forces of Babylon, which they considered to be a good thing.
(Although Crowley had previously written the somewhat hilarious book Moonchild – concerning a similar experiment – he wrote in a letter: “Apparently Parsons and Hubbard or somebody is producing a moonchild. I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the idiocy of these louts.”)
In any event, the rites were duly performed as written from January 4th to 15th of that year. It is not known if a spiritual child was enwombed from them. What is known is that the Magickal Portal first created by Crowley, and which originally let Lam into the earth-world, was reestablished with considerable intensity by Parsons and Hubbard.
From the diaries of the participants, it is also clear that they were not as adept as Crowley in the closings of portals. What they seemed to have accomplished was the drastic enlargement and ripping of an existing Magickal Portal and the subsequent non-closure of it. Perhaps the rip they created was not possible to close.
In any event, the modern UFO era began exactly a year and a half later on June 24th, 1947, with Kenneth Arnold’s sighting over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State.
The “grey aliens,” slight-bodied, big-headed, large-dark-eyed manikin creatures are primarily an American phenomena. And, it is interesting to note that all the Lam workings were done in America.
Reports of these UFO-associated entities became prevalent in the 1980’s and made the big time with Whitley Strieber’s book Communion. The “greys” appear eerily similar to Lam, with the exception of Lam not having the large insectoid wraparound eyes reported of the “greys.”
However, there are variations of these small manikins that very much resemble a Lam. See the second of the two pictures at the top of this page. This entity is a composite of a variation commonly seen in the 1980’s. Rather than grey, its skin tone is clay-white and the facial features are different. In fact, the resemblance to the Lam pictured by Crowley is virtually exact.
Also and perhaps most significantly, Kenneth Grant, head of the current O.T.O., states that:
“Lam is a Great Old One whose archetype is recognizable in accounts of UFO occupants.”
It would seem from this official Typhonian statement that the current invokers of Lam are absolutely clear that Lam and the grey-aliens are one.
