mentions the Dark Pharaoh’s throne room. One quote about it in particular:
“It’s angles were magnificent and most strange. By their hideous beauty I was enraptured and enthralled, and I thought myself of the daylight fools who had judged the housing of this room as mistaken. I laughed for the glory they missed. When the 6 lights lit, and the great word said, then He came, in all the grace and splendor of the higher planes, and I longed to sever my veins so my life would flow into his being and make me part of a god!”
A quote “see handout”.
