If you don’t know yer history….you just might let an ancient psy-ops to run amock in yer garden.
March 24th is a date that Thelemic Gnostics hold in reverence of Saint Priapus. Crowley called his wand Priapus.
Paracelsus influenced Blavatsky on the subject of the elemental Gnomes and the Rosicrucians, despite their beliefs in Jesus Christ claim Gnomes to be the elemental guardians of the inner earth. Paracelsus claimed to have communed with them, Terence McKenna is probably the more recent in a long line of individuals to claim some kind of communion with the Gnomes. (A by-product of taking shrooms for instance is an overproduction of DMT in the Pineal Gland which create hallucinations just like a by-product/side effect of Ecstasy is an overproduction of Seratonin – which will produce fake happiness)
One of the very first statues of a Gnome (along with Baal) may well have been Priapus.
One of the first mentions of Priapus was by Xenarchus of Seleucia (4th century BC) who wrote a comedy about Priapus. Statues of Priapus were peppered throughout Greece and Rome in gardens and doorways acting as guardian of vegetation and male genetalia. Passers by would stroke the Gnome like statue to gain favor.
The condition of Priapism (an erection that will not flacid…) comes from the name Priapus due to his large appendage that by all accounts was used to instill fear and terror into little boys and girls.
Little notes such as the one below accompanied the guardian gnomes.
Percidere, puer, moneo; futuere, puella;
barbatum furem tertia poena manet.
Femina si furtum faciet mihi virve puerve,
haec cunnum, caput hic praebeat, ille nates.
Per medios ibit pueros mediasque puellas
mentula, barbatis non nisi summa petet.
I warn you, boy, you will be screwed; girl, you will be fucked;
a third penalty awaits the bearded thief.
If a woman steals from me, or a man, or a boy,
let the first give me her cunt, the second his head, the third his buttocks.
My dick will go through the middle of boys and the middle of girls,
but with bearded men it will aim only for the top
Priapus – one of many who has been dickin y’all around for thousands of years.
