A book ‘The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail’ synchronicity & an incredible find in a Le Mans bookshop.

Many years back I took a trip on a ferry to France. It was there I met a woman. While deep in conversation I happened to mention Dr John Dee, Queen Elizabeth 1st astologer & magus. “How odd!” she said. “My son Nicolas is studying him at this very moment. He would love to meet you.” We did indeed meet, it turned out he went to school with friends of mine in Edinburgh. He gave me a book during our meet and said you must read it called ‘The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail. I had the book for six months, but never read a line and returned it to him. A week later I was in an Oxford bookshop with a friend and she said “is this book any good to you?” “What is it?” “The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail” “Blimey!” I said. A week later in a charity shop I came across the self same book and this time bought it. When I got home I skirted through the pages and came to page 155. It told the story of Jean Baptiste Pitois. How odd was that I thought when I discovered Pitois was the same name of my then french partner. Weeks later I was off to France again this time to seek to discover more about Pitois himself. I was given a business card by my partner’s brother it read: The Athanor 22 Rue Marchande. A rare book shop in the centre of Le Mans. I visited there and bought a few books and asked the owner if he had ever heard of Pitois. His answer was a flat no. A week later I returned to the shop and this time took with me the Holy Blood & Holy Grail Book purchased from the charity shop in England. I read him the section which contained Pitois from page 155. It was when I read him that Jean Baptiste Pitois alias Paul Christian wrote the book ‘Histoire de La magie’ that the owner stopped in his tracks, went to the back of his shop, and came back shortly thereafter with in his possession, amazingly, the original book of Pitois aka Christian from 1870. He opened it up, and showed me a picture within the book of an alchemist. He then pointed to the wall, where that very print hung in a frame, and had been there for the last two years. The odds of this are billions to one. He gave me a bag, which also had that print of the alchemist on it. Now I too have that in a frame on the wall. At one point I was a rare book dealer and have had three original copies of Histoire de la magie. Even had one of Paul Christian’s son called ‘La Reine Zinzarah.

Most recently a film called The Da Vinci Code based on or around the book with Tom Hanks came to prominance.


22 rue marchande

Picture inside the bookshop with the very man I met who owns l’athanor (which actually means the alchemist’s furnace) 22 Rue Marchande. Pictures at top 1870 book of Paul Christian, the alchemist print contained within the book and the print on the bag framed now on my wall.

The so called ‘ORB’ not dust this one!

I have absolutely no idea what an ‘ORB’ is but people have different perspectives on what they could be. What i do know is the picture below was taken by my wife Shona ‘after’ i said there will be an orb in the corner up there. She took the picture and there it was, the size of a football. This cannot possibly have been dust. I like fact as fact is truth, anything else is supposition. Just what are they? Love to know!


Science and their factual ‘theory’

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on October 20, 2016 by thecockneybard

I love debates with scientists especially about their facts which in their world is known as ‘theory’

They give you abuse and call me clueless. So I put these points to them.

Without sounding condescending OK super brains out there tell us how it all began. Tell us how that super intelligence throughout nature, mankind, animal kingdom. insect kingdom, procession of the planets, the vast universe got there in the first place. No one knows, no one has a clue. IMHO opinion no one will ever know. Stick to your test tubes and text books but you do have to use common sense, rational and reason too!. I heard a scientist say on the radio recently they would find what is invisible within ten years. Yer right!

The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model accounts for the fact that the universe expanded from a very high density and high temperature state, and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic microwave background, large scale structure and Hubble’s Law. If the known laws of physics are extrapolated to the highest density regime, the result is a singularity which is typically associated with the Big Bang. Detailed measurements of the expansion rate of the universe place this moment at approximately 13.8 billion years ago, which is thus considered the age of the universe.After the initial expansion, the universe cooled sufficiently to allow the formation of subatomic particles, and later simple atoms. Giant clouds of these primordial elements later coalesced through gravity in halos of dark matter, eventually forming the stars and galaxies visible today. (taken from Source)

SO IT STARTED OUT LIKE THIS (you start off with a universe). BUT HOW DID THIS GET THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE? Got to start somewhere I guess!

Please enlighten me if I have got it wrong.


Gary Allen The reality is that science does not YET have a for sure way of knowing what preceded the singularity. It could have been energy from another section of the multiverse etc. There are a lot of competing hypotheses regarding what caused it, but we simply don’t know.

As for HOW life began on this planet, there are also a variety of competing theories such as abiogenesis, panspermia etc. The reality is that various research has shown that any and all of these ideas could be possible. What microfossils have definitely shown is that the first actual organisms on this planet were single-celled organisms. Once those organisms came into existence, they quickly begin to diversify and evolve.

The above simply proves ‘science theory’ is fact is nonsense!
