Creativity House   -   The Rainbow Programme




All websites within The Neith Network family-suite I+N Creativity House are dedicated to the Shipwreck of St. Paul and placed under the protection of The Lady of All Nations; they are the best currently available source of communicable information about the largest prehistoric 'temple' on planet Earth. Had these venerable prediluvial structures not been located exactly where I have, since 10 February 1999, been indicating them to be, historical Christianity, humanly speaking, might never have come to birth. At least equally important, and certainly more urgent now, is what these webpages aim to clarify and focus...

Research Prehistoric Archæology in The Maltese Archipelago

Reject fear and hatred. Embrace love. Learn to forgive yourself.

St. Paul was shipwrecked near a prehistoric temple. Perhaps a submerged temple-wall struck against the keel of the ship shortly before it finally broke up and sank in what is now called St. Paul's Bay either in late October or early November A.D. 59. According to local tradition it was on 10 February, now the Feast of the Shipwreck of St. Paul, that the Apostle took ship from Gozo to Italy. An anchor and other remains of a Roman ship of that period have recently been discovered on the sea-floor.

Erich von Däniken agrees with Joseph S. Ellul's archæological assessment.

No diving here without official authorization! The contents of two full-colour professionally filmed and processed research-videos make it abundantly clear that this important prehistoric complex is no mere freak of nature but a primary archæological asset of worldwide significance. Yet, allegedly because the already published standard works of archæology nowhere mention its existence, this new discovery has been cavalierly dismissed by some academics as unworthy of present priority attention.

Letter to David Lorimer
Secretary to the Scientific & Medical Network

13 June 1996

Dear David,

As this letter relates to several questions, I hope you won't mind photocopying any relevant extracts from it to match your filing-system's requirements... Although I am very far from being financially rich, G-d has blessed me in many ways, and I desire to be of service.

J. D. Solomon, who was 90 in January and credits me with as fair a grasp of his positions as any individual is likely nowadays ever to attain to, cannot read much nowadays. As you probably know, he has a room at Westwood House in Sydenham. I have to hand 53 letters he has written to me since April 1990, but have not kept any of our earlier correspondence. In addition to his book The Mind's Ear and printed copies of 3 more recent papers of his, I also now own (either in manuscript or photocopied typescript, and without counting his article and book reviews in the Network Newsletter) another 65 papers he wrote either before or after his book, as well as 6 books which are annotated extensively in J.D.'s own hand, viz.: Spinoza's Ethics, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, Russell's History of Western Philosophy, C.I. Lewis's An Analysis of Knowledge and Valuation, Popper's Conjectures and Refutations, and Karen Armstrong's The First Christian - St. Paul's Impact on Christianity. I have also read (but don't own) a copy of J.D.'s "The Pleistocene Succession in Uganda" (in T. P. O'Brien, The Prehistory of Uganda Protectorate, Cambridge University Press, 1939, pp. 15-50). I have also been given copies of 10 family photographs - 1 of each of J.D.'s parents, and 8 of him as a youngster.

I have created electronic copies of the full text of The Mind's Ear, of 13 of the above-mentioned papers, of J.D.'s review of Levin's The Listening Self and of his December 1989 Network Newsletter article, all enriched with my own editorial footnotes. Since 1983 I have written 9 or more papers of varying lengths about J.D.'s cosmology, logic and philosophy of language in particular, of which the most recent and comprehensive are the 90th Birthday tributes: "An Introduction to J. D. Solomon's Logic and Philosophy for Students of his book The Mind's Ear and (with an "Introït for Organ" by Professor Peter Crossley-Holland) "The Wisdom of J. D. Solomon". This latter work also takes into account our private correspondence and many discussions throughout the last 17 years.

Seven Rules for the Guidance of Genius is the title of the 150-pages revised 1996 edition (limited so far to 11 copies) of a work I first circulated privately (to very few persons) in 1982. I believe that both "The Wisdom of J. D. Solomon" and Seven Rules (the fruit of research and collaboration with leading-edge specialists in various fields, some of whom have wished to remain unknown) are of considerable potential importance. The only publication known to me that deals intelligently with any of the themes central to Seven Rules was published (in agreement with Jovene of Naples, who published the Italian original in 1992) by the Institute of Economic & Social Studies in the Faculty of Jurisprudence of the University of Camerino in 1994, viz., Professor Brian Williams' 337-page translation of Professor Vittorio Hess's well-balanced Bureaucracy and Well-Being - Towards a non-Western model, a copy of which I own (no ISBN number!).

Voice in the Darkness, which was first published in 1978, remains a valid aid to committed readers willing to honour truth wherever it may be found, and patiently ready to open up and to grow in self-awareness, self-understanding, self-acceptance and self-involvement in the light of tradition. I have on HTML-format computer-files my 1996 updated version of this work in English (as well as some surviving hardback copies of the original first edition) together with my own Italian translation of the 1978 edition. As well as additions to the bibliography and minor changes in the critical apparatus, the 1996 edition contains a recent paper of mine relating the mediœval genius of Saint Thomas Aquinas to primordial esoteric wisdom and to the challenge of the new millennium. (I similarly have on computer-files, and am always happy to discuss, the full text of my main published and unpublished papers and book reviews, including my 1968 PhD thesis: "Why Ryle is not 'a Behaviourist'" and my 1995 RILKO lecture about the likelihood of Adam & Eve's having been 'created' when extra-terrestrials accelerated natural evolution c. 300,000 B.C. by having recourse to genetic engineering and in vitro fertilization techniques: "The '12th' Planet: Origin of Earth & Home of Man's Creator - Zecharia Sitchin's Hypothesis, a Preliminary Assessment".)

A copy of Thomas Merton's Last Unpublished Manuscript was recently given to me, and I also possess an outline draft of John Lilly's unpublished There Are No More Enemies, as well as the complete and otherwise unpublished text of the late Sylvester Houédard O.S.B.'s "Buddhist Haloes & Catholic Haloes - Are they the same colour?" Several of the 700 books I keep in my personal library are also fairly hard to come by. My related reading-lists and bibliographical recommendations range from a short short-list of less than 20 to an annotated and variously classified list of approximately 3,600 titles, most of which I have read for myself at some time or other, so that, although I do not run a lending library, I can help others in various ways in their own research.

Uniquely like all other men! Or, as one of my Neith Network leaflets begins: Free to grow and mature individually as persons... Our goal will be to nurture and nourish relationships with both men and women in today's world that do not operate at the expense of the Self, and to have a Self that does not operate at the expense of the Other...

This Packard-Bell PC has a 105Mb hard-disk and runs at 25Mhz with MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11 for WorkGroups and an attached CD-Rom drive and Class 2 Group 3 FaxModem on the same line as my voice-telephone. At present, because I am (at age 62) without paid work and entirely dependent on a fractional professional pension of only £78 per week after tax, I cannot, unless someone else pays my expenses, travel much, afford to join CompuServe or the Web, rent a second telephone-line or even keep my fax-modem on permanent standby! Neither can I afford to advertise for work - even on an expenses-only and otherwise purely voluntary basis. Kevin Ashbridge's Beginner's Guide to Computer-Based Communications nevertheless sounds like something I should have. If my enclosed cheque to cover the costs, as well as to renew my membership for another year, is insufficient, please let me know when you send me the Guide. Thank you. Also... if you can somehow finance me to enable me to do so, I would be very pleased to devote a day or so each month to helping with the Network's general computing from this end, helping to run a discussion forum on the Network's Web site, taking part in e-mail discussions within the Network, and contributing to the life and growth of any research-groups whose aims and objectives agree with my own as notified to you above and elsewhere (succinctly, for instance, on the enclosed A4 card, which you are most welcome to copy either as it is, or modified to suit your own requirements). Hope this helps us both, and that you have a good Summer.

As appreciation of Inter-Faith values grows and the Roman Catholic Church (in which my life is rooted) questions itself more searchingly, I feel that all those who accept its general claim to speak for Jesus ought to have access just as easily (e.g., via the pages of The Catholic Directory) to its so called laïcised priests as to those working within present official parameters - and I suggest that the title "Extra-Reverend" is a suitable, if novel, way to identify (without prejudice to anyone's assessment of the justice of their position) all such persons (and not just myself). Best wishes!

Racism has been defined as "an unjust situation, in which one group has an unequal place in society, suffering from a persistent pattern of prejudice, discrimination and disadvantage which is slow to change and rooted deep in the psyches and systems of a society dominated by another group."

The Neith Network Library on-line includes, for technical, strategic and tactical reasons, two special preliminary pages: (1) and (2)
and several complementary websites including:

The September 1998 issue of .net carried (pp. 32-33) Cotton Ward's illustrated article about Brother Aquinas's work as a cyber-savvy member of the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert, New Mexico. .net's reporter appreciated Aquinas's patient synergy as the expression of five elements:

Is this simply H.H. The Dalai Lama's Doctrinavirtutumque? Or is it Western Europe's Patriarch Benedict's Highest Yoga Tantra?

Since the total number of "hits" registered by visitors to up to 9.00 am on the morning of 2 February 2000 was precisely 222, on 25 March 1999, the Internet presence of my first Freeserve website researching the traditions I+N Tradition & Tradition in all traditions was very far indeed from the heady competitive heights .net's avid readers were then regulary being encouraged to aim for.

As a webmaster I was still a baby, and yet the entire already on-line Rainbow Programme was also faithfully electronically reflected and encapsulated for Creativity House in an integrated set of seven 3½" diskettes, each of a different colour. and each containing a single executable zipped file in HTML format; the total amounted to 14,848,502 bytes, and disk 1 also included an introductory readthis.txt with, I hoped, a fair and reasonable health warning:

Because there are very many different traditions within Tradition not all the files - text, images, sounds - contained in this set are likely at once to become your own preferred Top Of The Pops. None of them, however, are there "by deliberate mistake". The Neith Network Library serves Primordial Wisdom. How? Why? When? Parental Guidance, to say the least, is therefore both recommended and advised.

Health, Life, Strength be yours in all your ways!

Self-appointed distributors are recommended, before copying any files, at their own risk and cost and exclusively for their own monetary advantage, too, if any financial gain be made, as also before independently distributing them, to familiarize themselves with all relevant current planetary laws, regulations and customs (a preliminary discussion of these may be found on disk in its proper place).

Important æsthetic, moral, ethical, social, economic, political, legal, cultural and religious questions may, in fact, be raised by several aspects and dimensions of the contents and structure of The Neith Network Library. Indeed, one of the Preliminary LibrArian's functions is to serve as a catalytic converter facilitating a proper exploration and eventual resolution of all such questions - among others.

What one person finds "naughty but nice", another may deem to be "blasphemous, pornographic and obscene" - and yet another "highly abstract, pedantically intellectual and tediously boring". Eric Gill is not everyone's cup of tea!

The Ecology of Consciousness

by Joan D'Arcy Cooper (1927-1982)

“The spiritual sanctuary in Culbone was built on the etheric or invisible plane as a definite structure - not the kind usually found in churches or temples, but a spiritual building with separate yet interconnecting areas which could be looked after by different spiritual beings, so that everyone who comes into this place should have the possibility of an experience of peace and that some should seek further and find an inner tranquility in which there is the peace which passeth all understanding.

Glastonbury was important from 3,800 B.C. as the earliest power centre in Europe. Several hundred years before this a sage and teacher from what was then called Sumeria came to live in Culbone to set up a school of knowledge for the West of Britain, to teach those who were ready how to listen to an inner Voice and to follow directions or guidance from within, to awaken and encourage in them the desire to become whole and to grow spiritually.

Christ visited Culbone in the early winter of the year 25. This was part of a spiritualising and teaching mission in Britain before He began His active ministry in Palestine. Christ had not been to Britain before this time, but in the year 25 He came with his uncle and visited sanctuaries and holy places in the West of Britain, which had been established for several thousand years and were prepared for His coming. He did not go further east than Glastonbury. [Remember that while Glastonbury in Somerset has very ancient significance, the Glastonbury of New Testament times and the sub-Apostolic age will have been that in what is now Wales. Joan is not, however, I think, denying that Jesus travelled also to what was to become the preferred Glastonbury of the Tudors, until Henry VIII's Commissioners martyred the Abbot and several monks.]

Christ remained eight days with the solitary sage and teacher resident in Culbone, which at that time was known as K'SH'B'H (a Sumerian word meaning the working of the Divine Triad or the Trinity of Holy Action), renewing and fulfilling the older teaching, healing physically the people who arrived in need, and carrying out a special mission on the invisible or spiritual plane which He alone could perform.

The older teachings gave man knowledge about the structure of himself and the world and provided instruction for the evolution of his natural being to its greatest possible fulfilment. For the transcendence of this natural being or natural man, something else was necessary: a new impetus or purpose, a new flame or light to be implanted within the very beings of people. Christ brought the teaching which transcended the natural man. He brought in His own being the flame of caring, as it may be called, to be enkindled within the beings of men who were prepared and ready for the birth of the New Man.

Caring is not the love which the natural man experiences and expresses; it is not anything to which the natural man can aspire or which he can acquire by his own efforts: by any act of will or even by any form of spiritual preparation. (And yet it can be received when the person has reached a certain stage in his own spiritual growth.) Caring is a force or power which comes from a higher level, beyond the earth sphere altogether, which is only at work in the earth sphere through persons who have received it directly from other persons. For, flame-like, it can only be passed on from person to person. It was first brought onto the physical earth by Christ.

Christ's teaching was centred in caring; He taught people about the inter-relatedness of the physical and spiritual worlds and physical man's dependence upon spiritual beings, in particular each one's own guardian angel, to protect and guide and instruct him if he was to fulfil his Divine purpose on earth and evolve spiritually.

Man's ordinary thinking is based on having: having possessions or even having spirituality. Christ showed that all life in God, in the Kingdom of Heaven, is based not on having but on giving. Giving is always first, and a man is I+N the Kingdom only through giving - giving all he has, giving himself.

In 105 A.D. Culbone again ceased to be occupied permanently. In the year 430 seven monks from the Celtic monastic tradition in Wales arrived in Culbone, which they called Kitnor, meaning: place of the cave, cleared the valley, and built six stone cells for themselves in a circle around the central cell of the senior monk. This central cell was divided into two so that there could be a place for communal activity and worship. The monks regarded all their activities as aspects of worship, and they needed no separate chapel; eating, study and teaching, prayer and chanting took place in one room. They also cultivated the land to grow their food. Each monk had a sense of responsibility towards his own individual conscience which took precedence over the Rules of Obedience towards the Order and group. The senior monk did not exercise the rôle of superior. The Holy Eucharist was not celebrated as it was in later times; the breaking of their daily bread was considered to be a sacrament in itself. The monks' principal task was to teach.”




The gods are not; truly, you are the G-d who is in hiding! (Isaiah 45:14-15)
