“Once the Golgotha initiate experiences the Holy Sickness and awakens to the eternal shadow presence of the intelligence of Death, the hidden stargates open their ephemeral doorways into vistas unknown to mundane perception.”  

– Craig Williams, Cult of Golgotha (Voix Mortes), p 136 (Anathema Publishing, 2018)

The Intelligence of Death (Acrylic on Wood Panel, 2018) – this particular Golgotha piece was a great opportunity to experiment with hints of the clean lines and symbolic clarity that Haitian artist, Lesly Pierrepaul uses in his paintings – as do some of my fellow north Georgia artists like Tex S. Crawford and Kip Ramey.

Web of Perception – Cult of Golgotha Series (3 of 8)

Posted in > ART by David on October 4, 2018

Screen Shot 2018-10-02 at 1.51.44 PM

“All contact with alien intelligences have the potential to expand the human web of perception. Etherian intelligences seek contact with human awareness to ground their teachings within specific terrestrial spaces, and within particular corporal dimensions of awareness.”

– Craig Williams, Cult of Golgotha (Etherian Physics, p  88 (Anathema Publishing, 2018)

Web of Perception (Contact with Alien Intelligences) – (Mixed Media – Acrylic on Antique Roofing Panel, 2018) –  webs, dry wings, insect legs, etc. worked into the paint on charactered wood that sat for decades on the threshold between the enclosed space and the open sky.

Preliminary Cosmo-Psychic Spider Daemon Sketch

The 200 year old barn where this piece was created hosts a vibrant array of arachnid life, – the creation process harnessing the the important sense of place within the work of Golgotha – providing an opportunity for unique meditations upon certain key passages within the text on time travel and contact with non-human intelligence(s).

It was particularly gratifying to complete this painting as part of an extended experimental process begun in 2013 with Our Lady, Queen of Spiders – through the lens of Golgotha this composition becomes an active portal into the cobwebbed attics of space/time:

 

“I suddenly heard the subtle sounds of every insect around me – all of the eyes – the movement – the entire atmosphere alive with awareness.

I ‘saw’ the queen at the center of the web – her eyes black mirrors – her poison a dry medicine which strips away the flesh of illusion.”

Our Lady, Queen of Spiders

A sweet, field of sonic revery – the song of our lady is a choice and holy choir. An atmospheric meditation in stereo sound- of spiders and honey in the carcass of a lion.

Sounds assembled 2010-2013, Processed & Fixed in the heart of the woods on the night of April 28th, 2013

Golgotha Psychomanteum- Cult of Golgotha Series (2 of 8)

Posted in > ART by David on October 4, 2018

“Dr. Crosley has provided specific instructions for building the atmosphere within the Golgotha psychomanteum, allowing the initiate to attune to the voices of the Baron Cimitiere who teaches many secrets related to journeys to the Land of the Dead beyond our known universe.”  

– Craig Williams, Cult of Golgotha (Quantum Vodon), p 180 (Anathema Publishing, 2018)

Golgotha Psychomanteum (Acrylic on Cardboard, 2018) – borrowing inspiration from the fantastic visionary painters of Port-au-Prince, Haiti – this piece is painted on cardboard and utilizes a more diagramic design that the others in the initial series of 8.

The term ‘psychomanteum’ describes a therapeutic mirror-gazing methodology developed by afterlife researcher Dr. Raymond Moody that induces a mild altered state of consciousness when employed by a willing subject – his website LifeAfterLife.com describes it as:

“…a chamber invented by Dr. Moody, but inspired by the ancient techniques used for 2500 years at the Oracle of the Dead in Ephyra Greece. A visitor to the Psychomanteum often experiences contact with departed loved ones.

The Psychomanteum technique involves mirror gazing. You seat yourself comfortably, then relax and look into the depth of a clear mirror without trying to really see anything. Deep relaxation is necessary for this process. When the relaxation process is successful, your arms should feel heavy, and your fingers will tingle. This tingling will signal the onset of the hypnogogic or altered consciousness state.

Your mirror will become cloudy: Practitioners report seeing an image resembling the sky on a cloudy day; others find that the mirror seems to darken. This lets you know that visions are about to appear.”

Within Williams work  ‘Psychomanteum‘ functions as a descriptive hint for effective use of symbolism in trans-mundane visualization practices – the Golgotha Psychomanteum diagram works within this understanding to provide a cipher and iconic gateway from which to encounter certain atmospheres related to the text.

In the Spaces Beyond – Cult of Golgotha Series (1 of 8)

Posted in > ART by David on October 4, 2018

Screen Shot 2018-10-03 at 1.33.12 PM

“The irradiated flesh assumes horrific masks in the spaces beyond the Saturnian Doorways.

We have established contact to liberate the human consciousness from the binding Ahrimanic illusions.

We exist within and without the atmosphere and elemental spaces of the flesh and terrestrial realms. There is no distinction between Inner and Outer Space in Etheria.

The human bio-field must be metabolically transformed to survive the entry into the atmosphere of Etheria.

How long will science ignore the esoteric implications of the appearance of the Etherian Aeroforms?

We exist eternally as Invisible Residents in the atmospheres of the mind and terrestrial spaces.”

-Etherian Physics Trance-Mission, p 105-106 in Craig Williams’ Cult of Golgotha (Anathema Publishing, Ltd., 2018)

A new series of paintings and illustrations is in the works to celebrate Craig Williams’ recently published book, Cult of Golgotha.

In the Spaces Beyond (Mixed Media – Acrylic on Canvas Board, 2018) plays with the concepts of – Stargates – Masks – and Gateways – as described in Williams’ work –  borrowing from folk art traditions still current within north Georgia and the Carolinas, which feature visionary depictions of elemental entities, skeletons and UFOlogical beings and craft.

Each piece in the series continues creative explorations of Williams text through the additional lens of both artistic and esoteric traditions active within the north Georgia region – the radionic work of Dr. T. Galen Hieronymous – the bio-field techniques developed by Raybun County’s famed ‘living radionic device,’ Edd Edwards – the apocalyptic nuclear era ambiance of the Georgia Guidestones – and other subtle streams peculiar to the area in which the paintings are created.

As Dr. Reginald Crosley advised ‘Docteur Williams’ before he began transcribing the Golgotha trance-missions into book form:

 “…you must continue to push the boundaries of the Bio-field frequencies and establish the Elijah-Elisha connection. The Cult of Golgotha must become a Strange Attractor, a Vortex of Singularity!”

Iridescent Blossoms on the Moons of Saturn – Craig Williams Reads the Poetry of Clark Ashton Smith

Posted in > SOUND by David on October 9, 2017

a3435323364_10“Bow down I am the Emperor of Dreams.”

– Clark Ashton Smith

A trance-inducing collection of daemonic high strangeness – transmitting straight from the eerie afterglow of vintage Weird Tales –

Iridescent Blossoms on the Moons of Saturn: Craig Williams Reads the Poetry of Clark Ashton Smith

“Of younger Americans, none strikes the note of cosmic horror so well as the California poet, artist and fictionist Clark Ashton Smith, whose bizarre writing, drawings, paintings and stories are the delight of a sensitive few.

Mr. Smith has for his background a universe of remote and paralyzing fright – jungles of poisonous and iridescent blossoms on the moons of Saturn, evil and grotesque temples in Atlantis, Lemuria, and forgotten elder worlds, and dank morasses of spotted death-fungi in spectral countries beyond earth’s rim…In sheer daemonic strangeness and fertility of conception, Mr. Smith is perhaps unexcelled by any other writer dead or living. Who else has such gorgeous, luxuriant, and feverishly distorted visions of infinite sphere s and multiple dimensions and lived to tell the tale?”

– H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature

The Radionic Cult of Guede – Vodoun-Gnostic Cut-Ups (Vol. 1)

Posted in > SOUND by David on August 1, 2017

a0124927880_10 (1)

“The Vodou mentality, by exhibiting a multidimensional vision of the universe, seems to correspond well to what Michio Kaku called the theory of hyperspace.”

– Dr. Reginald O. Crosley, The Vodou Quantum Leap: Alternative Realities, Power and Mysticism, p. 80 (Llewellyn, 2000)

A MYSTERY DRAMA BEYOND MUNDANE TIME – Internationally acclaimed author, acupuncturist and Ayurvedic practitioner, Craig Williams, explores tantric and radionic aspects of the Guede cult in contemporary American vodou through cut-up techniques developed by the pioneering creatives, William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin.

These recordings utilize the power of the cut-up technique to explore alternative cognitive pathways while experimenting within the realms of creative expression, time and consciousness.

“Put on your headphones and dim the lights….the ritual is about to begin…” – Craig Williams

A printable PDF pamphlet containing the text of the cut-ups is included with purchase.

Note: These high quality stereo products are best experienced with head phones for optimal listening.
