ART CHANGES THE WORLD

THE 'DA VINCI CODE' AND H.P.B.
Art changes the world.
Fiction often reveals deeper facts than the conventional descriptions of reality, because these are normally controlled by centralized power-mechanisms, be them “scholarly”, “political” or “religious”.
Thus, the “Da Vinci Code” controversy has been a tool by which the reality of Jesuitism/OpusDeism gets better known by the wide public.
H. P. Blavatsky wrote that the “political” and “occult” scheme organized by Jesuits is of no small proportions. In fact, the Roman Catholic Church is even now a worldwide cultural and religious institution of great power to control people’s minds, though it was much more so in the 19th century.
“....... It would be well perhaps, if the Jesuits contented themselves with making dupes of Freemasons and opposing the Theosophists and Occultists using for it the Protestant clergy as ‘cat’s paw’.”
Here, HPB is saying that the Protestant Rev. George Patterson, of the Christian College in Madras, was used by the Jesuits in his campaign against Theosophy. There are wide sections of the Protestant world that do play the Vatican game. For instance, in the 1930s and 1940s Germany, Catholics and Protestants both gave their suppor to A. Hitler. In India, in the 1880s, both agreed to fight Theosophy by all means.
Describing the Jesuitical plans, HPB proceeds:
“But their plottings have a much wider scope, and embraced a minuteness of detail and care of which the world in general has no idea. Everything is done by them to bring the mass of mankind again to the state of passive ignorance which they well know is the only one which can help them to the consummation of their purpose of Universal Despotism.” (1)
An investigation on present-day Opus Day -- an organization which imitates Masonry (2) -- might give us some more light on the subjetc, and help us clear our vision regarding the future.
