A system of Philosophy which will assist in the solution of any problem.

W

Knowledge, in a scientific system, of the ultimate principles, elements, causes and laws that underlie and explain all knowledge and existence.

W hat

Is

a System ?

An orderly arrangement and combination of knowledge according to some ration­ al principle or organic idea, giving it unity and completeness.

W hat Is Science ?

Knowledge gained and verified by exact observation and correct thinking. The Master Key System is therefore "Knowledge of the ultimate principles, elements, cause and laws that underlie and explain all knowledge and existence, arranged according to some rational principle or organic idea, giving it unity and completeness, and verified by exact observation and correct thinking.

Of what value is a system

of this kind ?

It is the solvent for every physical, political, social, or economic ill in existence.

W hy

Is this

so ?

Because it explains the principles, causes and laws by which conditions are created'

apparently fixed conditions and environment in his life ?

Most assuredly: there is not the slightest doubt concerning this.

It is being accom­

plished every day by thousands who are coming into an understanding of the creative

principle of the Universe.

Is this Creative Principle subject to the control of the individual ?

No.

All natural laws are definite, fixed, eternal.

They never change.

The indi­

vidual may, however, come into an understanding of these laws and make use of them to his advantage exactly as he makes use of the laws governing electricity, gravitation or any other Natural law. He does not change them but he operates in harmony with

them and thereby secures the result which he desires and anticipates.

The Master Key System is the only definite, clear, concise, conclusive and scien­ tific presentation of the Creative Principle which has ever been formulated by anyone at any time, and the results accruing from the operation of this Principle are so startling as to appear incredible to the uninitiated.

A Master Key will be sent to any address without cost or obligation of any kind.

No doubt you are anxious to know just what the future holds in store for you. Are you thinking of making any changes in your affairs during the coming year? And your marriage— how abou* that? Have you no. often wondered why you felt so fine on certain days, and so “ out of sorts” mentally and physically on others? Astrology explains the matter. When the Planets ruling your particular Birth Sign are in favorable aspects you just can’t help feeling fine, and wheD their aspect is unfavorable you are bound to feel “ below par. It’s a natural law, just as natural and just as sure as the Law of Gravitation. No thinking person questions Newton’s Law of Gravitation, neither do they doubt that the rise and fall of the Tides are caused by the attraction of the Sun and Moon. Then in the light of present day information, how unreasonable is it to deny that the planets have a powerful effect on the human body which is composed of the self-same elements as the earth. When the planets are favorable it is an easy matter to secure or hold a position and when they are unfavorable everything seems to “ go wrong.” You then say that you are having "bad luck.” As an Astrologer it is my duty to point out these moods of rest and unrest in order that you may know best when to push your affairs. You cannot afford to grope in the dark or follow a blind road through life when it is possible to ob­ tain advanced information carrying you through the entire year of 1920 and up to the very brink of 1921, giving the exact days and dates when the planets are in a most favorable position for making changes in your business and social affairs, such as signing papers, making contracts, seeking employ­ ment, speculating, travel, love, courtship and marriage, etc. If you are unhappy, dissatisfied, or have been unsuccessful in marriage or business, by all means secure one of my new 1920 Astrological Forecasts, in which a special effort has been made to point out the vocation to which each person is best suited. If you are following the wrong vocation, you will soon become disheartened and dissatisfied and should you continue to drift aimlessly upon the tide of life you will surely come to poverty and want when old age creeps upon you. Nothing is of greater im­ portance than to correctly determine the pursuit to be followed through life. The great majority of people who fail in their undertakings lose out because they follow lines of work to which they are not adapted. My fee for your Astrological Forecast for 1920 covering from 8 to 9 pages is only SI. The reason for this extremely low price is made possible from the fact that I have thousands of clients in all parts

of the world who order their “ Annual Forecasts” each year.

Should you desire a forecast for some relative or friend, state the date of their birth and include an extra dollar and by so doing, you, or they, may learn something of advantage.

Make out your order NOW, while the thought is fresh in your mind, just enclose a $1.00 bill,— you will find it perfectly safe; or you may send check, P. O. or express money orders.

In ordering give full date of birth.

Respectfully

yours,

The Alchem ists

(Ebttoriate

Vindicated

Perhaps no other thinkers or body of searchers into the mys­ teries of nature have been more laughed at, scorned and ridiculed than the Alchemists. The complacent nineteenth and twentieth century product of human evolution, firmly convinced of his superiority in knowledge and common sense to any benighted

person of previous ages, has regarded the Alchemists, Astrologers and Magicians of history as more or less harmless lunatics, super- stitiously hunting will-o’-the-wisps. Some with a little more brains recognizing that there could not be so much smoke without some fire, became apologetic, and explained that the real Alchemist only used the metals and pro­ cesses as symbols of spiritual development and that the Art of Alchemy was nothing more than a disguising language covering

a philosophical doctrine. Such regarded those who really

sought to transmute base metals into gold and silver, as fools who

had taken the writings of their predecessors literally, but whom we had to thank for the modern science of Chemistry. With the discovery of radium, science received something

of a shock; and the possibilities following the study of the ion

A zoth

and electron made science regard the old alchemist with a little doubtful attention, but even at the present time we think there are but a very few persons who believe that the old alchemists knew what they were about. As one of these few it is with peculiar pleasure that we note in the newspapers two important items. One is an account of successful experiments in transmutation by Sir Ernest Ruther­ ford, an English Scientist. He has not actually made gold from lead but working on the knowledge that differences in an atom are solely the number of electrons and positive particles contained in it, has succeeded in breaking them up, when they form different combinations. He says that to make gold it would suffice to detach two Alpha particles from Bismuth atoms or from lead two Alpha and one Beta particle. This disruption is done by the Alpha rays from radium. The other case is that of Mr. Rudolph M elville Hunter, of Philadelphia, who for many years has claimed to have mastered the secret of turning base metals into gold. The foundation of his process is evidently identical with that of Sir Ernest Ruther­ ford, the transformation of the constituents of the metallic atom; his method seems to be by chemical and electrical means. He will not give the secret to the world on account of the harm it would do but exhibits metals in the process of changing to gold and his alchemical gold has been tested by Sir W illiam Ramsay of London and found to be chemically pure. So the alchemists of old are vindicated. Their methods were not the methods of modern science but closely analogous. There can be no doubt that the old process of sublimation was to resolve the metal into its atomic parts, but the change of the posi­ tive and negative particles in the atom giving it the different power of combination was done by the aid of other forces of nature than the alpha rays of radium. It may be that modern science will go farther and some day discover the elixir vitae. Who knows?

T he

Sub-Conscious

Perhaps the greatest obstacle to a general acceptance of spirit communication and its corollary, the continuity of the per­ sonality after death, is the theory of the sub-conscious mind. In automatic writing of any kind in which the hand or hands are used, either to hold a pencil or move a planchette or ouija board, no matter how foreign to the ordinary intelligence, education or knowledge of the medium the received communication may be, there is a universal tendency by scientific and would-be scientific

A z o t h

i 37

as well as the sceptical materialistic minds, to ignore the obvious explanation and ascribe all such phenomena to the sub-conscious mind. Let us admit that the proper attitude in which to investigate these things, in order that there may be no possible error as to the source, is to consider every other possible explanation very carefully and give a verdict of not proven if any such can be found tenable, but it is a question how much we are justified in attributing to the sub consciousness the source of all genuine auto­ matic writings. In the first place we know very little about the so-called subconscious beyond the fact that it has been fairly well demon­ strated that there is a region of mind in which is retained the memory of all the incidents of the life so far experienced. We know that under certain conditions of suggestion or stimulation these incidents can be recalled. It is considered true by many that in addition to this the sub conscious includes a sense organ memory of much to which those organs have reacted but which have not reached the actual consciousness. How much of this is fact and how much theory is debatable and we doubt if any­ thing very definite is really known about it. Nevertheless it is precisely to this part of the sub-conscious­ ness that the messages received auomatically or spoken in trance or hypnotic sleep are attributed. W e are invited to believe, for example, that X, the Living Dead Man, who writes so interest- ingly of his after death experiences; that Patience Worth with her quaint dialect, her literary style, her brilliant repartee; that Frederick of “ The Seven Purposes” and the helpful and valuable Lessons claiming to emanate from “ Headquarters” in the same book; all have their source in the subconsciousness of the respec­ tive amanuenses. If Judge Hatch, Patience Worth and Fred­ erick, not to mention numerous other communicants from the “other side,” are merely the expression of the subconsciousnss of the message-bearer, then we are confrontd with a problem much more complex, extraordinary and profound than that of after death life of the personality, viz: the existence in each of us of practically another personality using our organs of sense but with a mind and knowledge superior to that which we can express; an entity which can think and feel independently of our conscious thought and feeling; an entity which can cleverly personate others, and which addresses us or an audience, as a separate indi­ vidual. That we are all dual personalities in one body with the less developed mostly dominant, seems more difficult of belief than the communication with us of one in the so-called spirit world, especially when we have so much evidence in allied

138

phenomena, such as materialization,

through trumpets, spirit photography, table rapping and tilting and so forth, that prove the existence of such spirits. A t our present state of actual knowledge the subconscious is nothing more than a convenient term to which many people relegate all spirit communication and which enables them to avoid a frank admission of the obvious though unwelcome ex­ planation. That the subconscious is anything more than what has been stated v i z : the latent and unconscious memory of past experience, is not known, and the attribution to it of possibilities of anything more than this is pure speculation and entirely un­ warranted.

the direct voice, speaking

Students of occult philosophy are familiar with the teaching that in reality every individual is so limited by his physical and astral bodies that the expression of his full character, knowledge and memory is impossible. This real nature is called by various names, the Self, the Ego, the Genius, etc., and Mr. F. W. H. Myers in his “ Human Personality” gets very close to this idea when he posits the sub-liminal and the supra-liminal self. Some persons use the word sub-conscious as including both these states of consciousness, but, allowing for this extension of meaning, we must maintain that the three conditions of sub, waking and supra consciousness are but states of and part of the one consciousness and cannot be considered as having a separate existence, and therefore do not furnish any satisfactory explanation of spirit communication. It is true that for purposes of clarity of teach­ ing the Ego and the Personality are sometimes treated as if two separate entities, but it is not really so, and we do not credit the possibility of the higher talking to the lower as a separate being, claiming name, history, death, experience and many other matters, absent from the memory of the lower or outside of its knowledge. The higher consciousness, when it does come through into a man’s waking consciousness, expresses itself as idea, sudden com­ prehension, conscience or intuition, and in many other subtle ways, but never as some entity not himself, and to ascribe all the communications now being received to the subconscious or even superconscious man is unscientific, in a measure cowardly, and simply begs the question.
