    Now with
    Sorcerers Aprentice, National Treasue, and the DaVinci Code,

    This would be a hit movie;
    Abolition
    Civil War
    Occult
    Secret Societies
    Conspiracies
    Black History

    Paschal Beverly Randolph is an enigmatic and fascinating figure. A free man of colour born in the state of Virginia in 1825, he was an orator and spokesperson for the Abolitionist cause before the Civil War. He was also a well known spiritualist and trance-medium, and a world-traveller in the best Victorian fashion, who visited England, France, Turkey, Egypt, Syria, and other regions in search of esoteric wisdom. His investigations into Rosicrucianism led him to the then highly controversial field of sex-magic, and along the way he also wrote a definitive treatise of the use of hashish as an aid to trance possession (1860), and an equally important book on clairvoyant scrying with magic mirrors (1860). As a medical doctor and occultist, Randolph attempted to transcend the coercive racial stereotyping of 19th century America, but although he took as his motto the word "Try!" and developed a tremendous force of will, he felt continually checked in his ambitions. In 1875 he succumbed to what seems to have been a long-standing case of depression and ended his life by suicide at the relatively young age of 50, leaving behind a wife and infant son.

    Randolph is thought by some modern authors to have been the fore-runner who paved the way for the ceremonial sex-magic practiced by members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Ordo Tempi Orientis, and related groups. His best-known book is the 1874 volume "Eulis! The History of Love: Its Wondrous Magic, Chemistry, Rules, Laws, Modes, Moods and Rationale; Being the Third Revelation of Soul and Sex, also, Reply to 'Why Is Man Immortal?' the Solution to the Darwin Problem, an Entirely New Theory." This work, with its mention of Cabbala [Randolph's spelling], the Hindu Chrishna [ditto], Hermes, the celestial Alkahest, and the mystery school of Alexandria is certainly the product of someone who had studied comparative philosophy and religion, and in its statement that the author is the "Grand Master of the Order" it seems to promulgate a formal, albeit cryptic, system of organized spiritual training. The claim is not entirely without substance: from 1857 through 1860, Randolph was the head of the Third Temple of the Rosie Cross, which he had founded in San Francisco,

    Aseer Duke of Tiers does a lecture on this man and his involvement with abe lincoln. It is a very interesting lecture that Aseer does on paschal beverly randolph. I had never even heard of this guy until Aseer talked about him. As for terrence howard I am not a fan of him or his singing or acting.

    No biggie, but you do see the resemblance.

    In Randolph's book pr-Adamic Man, the intro states that he had visions of the television, rocket propulsion, and airplanes.

    He brought the Rosicrucian movement to the United States.

    The man was way ahead of his time and able to see into something, get his book on Sexual Magic, no not that stuff that Crowley stole from him, but the original Kemetic Tantra only done with ones spouse and only effective with one that one is married to in deep love and planning mutual goals and objectives for mutual benefit.

    There's another one called "Pre-Adamic Man" buy it before it goes out of print!

    But back to the Ent; with the "Da Vinci Code", masonic fliks like "The Symbol" coming out soon, all this Harry Potter stuff, and occult fliks like "Constantine", this flik can be a real Black history, fantasy, action, and revolutionary flik if done right!

    I stumbled across his name in a blog I was reading. Seems like his legacy has been played down quite a lot - no surprise there.

    Respect for the info Ankhur, will check it out.

    One of the reasons why his bography, other then being a good, occult flik, histporic peice and Black movie, it would also be a good film noire thriller, cause his death was claimed to be a suicide
    but with the kind of haters he had and black folks hated in general back then, who knows?
    Maybe Albert Pike was involved in a hit? good role for Brian Cox!
