Sound magic, crystalline sparkles, and the omnipresence of the sacred ... (Lux Atena) the new work by HIEMIS proposes an initiation, a transcendental journey through brilliant soundscapes.
Never had there been a collective experience of "the invisible" comparable to that of Martines de Pasqually and her disciples when they joined forces to research "La Chose" together.
Pasqually was one of the most enigmatic the eighteenth century, manifesting himself at the beginning of him as a Freemason, soon creating his own initiatory organization, the Order of the Elus Cohens.
This Order was heir to mystical sects of antiquity and the Neo-Alexandrian period, with special influence on its ritual by occult masters of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Master and disciples professed a mystique of Reintegration to the condition of Man-God and was the forerunner of other currents within the initiatory world such as the Rectified Scottish Regime and various branches of the Martinist Orders.
Although until now those who investigated the invisible expected what they were going to see in it, calling angels or demons according to the forms of Christian iconography. Pasqually, however, stated that it was not known in advance what being would appear at the time of the evocation. This is how La Chose would emerge.
In the first sessions the new disciples admitted to participate in the works of the teacher saw how La Chose performed mysterious actions. They left there excited and terrified or drunk with pride and ambition. These appearances were produced by strange beings and of a different essence from that of terrestrial beings. These beings gave speeches and transmitted deep knowledge during rituals. Each disciple was summoned to reproduce, in his own way, the same phenomenon.
La Chose's presence in the Operations Chamber could impress the disciple's senses in different ways: he felt “goose bumps all over his body”, or he heard faint sounds; but, in general, "the manifestation was operated by vision", by the perception of sparkles and sparks. In order to perceive them, the Operator extinguished the candles and kept the flame of the only candelabrum that remained lit until the end of the ceremony.
The solemn Operations were to be carried out at exactly the same time by all the ordained and authorized Cohens. The Chambers of Operations where they officiated could be situated at a great distance from each other, for example, in Lyon, Paris and Bordeaux, but a perfect timing was absolutely necessary for him to act.
The Chosen Knights of Martines de Pasqually performed such sacred rites in the service of the highest Theurgy. Most of the prescriptions of the operative rituals were used from the most remote antiquity, astrology having an important role.
For the Elus Cohens, true faith is based on pre-natural facts and since they, due to the decline of the historical cycle, are no longer produced publicly, it is necessary to generate them in the Chamber of Operations through complex and strict ritual. Therefore, the Theurgic Operation is less an act of faith, of adoration, of devotion, than a high practice of Sacred Science.
