Since this book is autobiographical in nature I feel certain that the author is more than just aware of this dichotomous fear vs. fascination process I am referring to. Unquestionably she has moved in some of the darker corners of the esoteric, occult world where the more cautious and timid amongst us dare not go. Such being the case she has become intimate with particular people, groups and spiritual practices that have opened her mind and soul to non-physical dimensions and entities that may have agendas that are not in mankind's best interests. Thankfully some people just don't know what's good for them.
Throwing caution to the wind Tracy takes the reader on a remarkable journey of mythic proportions involving a quest undertaken by her newly founded secret society, `Ordo Lapsit Exillis' (Stones of Exile). Operating under a stated goal of discovering the true nature of the holy grail and exactly how it functions within the esoteric history and contemporary descendants of the royal bloodline of France. A lineage which allegedly includes Jesus of Nazareth and Mary Magdalene within its line of progenitors. Aided by her best friend and husband Brian, Tracy's quest oscillates between objective intellectual research and subjective personal experience. The first leading to the publishing of the now defunct underground classic zine (self-published magazine), `Dagobert's Revenge' and the latter to a specially designed Ouija board used to successfully contact the infamous goat-headed god Baphomet along with a number of other nefarious disembodied spirits.
Believe me when I say you will not be able to put this book down. Between the highly charged channeled material, the internal politics and intense egos warring within the OLE (Ordo Lapsit Exillis) and the arcane material presented you're in for quite a ride. If you enjoy exploring such topics as; Grail lore, numerology, divination, alchemy, etymology, sacred geometry, mythology, Satanism, Kabbalah, secret societies, the Nephilim, lost civilizations, Christian eschatology, UFO's, reptilians and the hollow earth then this is the book for you.
The final section of the book; "Terminus: Further and Beyond" (pages 252 - 418) functions in true interdisciplinary fashion presenting a dazzling comparative analysis and synthesis of the material presented, as well as some final thoughts & personal reflections from Tracy. This section is by far the most intellectually demanding portion of the book and will require the reader's utmost attention.
Whether you regard Tracy's interests and actions as being fearless or foolhardy, her inquisitive nature and research oriented pursuits have led to the creation of an amazing document. The authors firsthand accounts with preternatural entities coupled with her intellectual prowess within a wide range of esoteric fields have successfully coalesced in `Clock Shavings' into what just might be her Magnum Opus (Great Work). I predict that in the years to come this will be recognized as the book that summoned Baphomet out from the dusty pages of Templar history and veiled allusions of Freemasonry into the contemporary occult landscape as a conscious, aggressive personality to be dealt with. For good or ill, Baphomet once again moves amongst us!
How do you put it into words? What this book imparts?
Tracy Twyman is a bold soul--digging deeply into taboo mysteries--since her teenage years. Ambitious to the point of writing and self publishing magazines, starting occult groups to potentially welcome the anti-christ, being an expert in the Grail mysteries and even traveling to sacred sights and engaging in 'mediumship' to seek out her answers.
THIS BOOK IS TERRIFYING! ...and most excellent. Perhaps the 'lay-reader' will mistake it for nonsense, or even insanity... But the 'adept', who is studied and well read, can take this book as a confessional memoir of just how far any particular rabbit hole might go.
Twyman reveals the fate of her late husband, and of the mysterious death of Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg, who was alleged to be directly from the Merovingian or "dragon" bloodline. She details her Ouji sessions with Cain, Baphomet, and even Satan... And is open in her telling of how these supernal forces have affected her life--for better or for worse.
I fully recommend this book, as well as her other works.
...but if you're not already a student of the occult and esoterica, you might start with "Money Grows on the Tree of Knowledge" or something less candid and intimate.
Tracy also gives some insight with other non-demonic personas (?) like Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg, Boyd Rice, the secret society of the Ordo Lapsit Exillis and others which are just as fascinating, if not more. The last part of the book gives us her very detailed explanations on what the messages given to her by her supernatural contacts. The dot-connecting she makes in regards to many subjects is also bar none. These subjects include everything from Faustus, Noah's Ark, Eden, Seth and Cain, the Book of Enoch, Kabbalistic legends, the concepts of the hybercube and New Jerusalem from Revelations and how they relate to Sumerian myths, rituals and legends associated with the Rosicrucians and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Greek mythology, etc, etc.
Like others who have read this book, I've had to put this book down a few times out of the shear intensity of what I was reading. I'm certainly glad I kept with it and Tracy does not relent with her truly inspiring research.
