THE RPSTOVAL REVIEW
ISSUE #4 JUNE\JULY 1991 $1.50 U.S.
NOT ALL OF US ARE PROUD OF THIS
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
A poll taken in October states that 90% of the American
population opposed the U.S. starting a war in The Gulf. By March
90% were in support of the extermination. With 45% of the Iraqi
population being children it is no wonder the media has avoided
mentioning the number of dead since the "liberation" of Kuwait.
It also comes as no surprise that the Pentagon division of news
manipulation tried (and, according to the toll mentioned above;
succeeded) to make the American masses believe that the U.S.
bombing of a baby formula factory was in reality a chemical
warfare plant in disguise: It wasn't.
The pentagon also denied the fact that one of the bridges it
bombed was filled to capacity with Iraqi civilians trying to
escape the butchery: It was.
The CIA estimated that the sanctions had reduced Iraq's GNP 40%.
Oil exports were cut by 95% (oil made up 90% of Iraq's exports).
The Bush administration insisted that sanctions would not have
worked: They did.
The Pentagon assured us that only militarily significant targets
were being destroyed. The Pentagon considered the water supply,
warehouses of medical supplies and food "militarily significant".
Doctors operated by candle light, without pain killer or anti-
biotics, nurses and doctors were unable to scrub from lack of
water; mortality rate went from 6% to 20% as a result of poor
sanitary conditions. Bush said the war was a moral one: It
Before the crisis Iraq made several peace proposals, all of which
Bush denied. By the time the Soviets attempted to find a
peaceful solution the issue was not whether Iraq would withdraw
from Kuwait, but how fast. They proposed three weeks; we
demanded one. The Bush administration said that there was no
peaceful solution: There was.
Marine Reservist Erik Larsen is facing court marshals for
refusing to go to the war. He say's he was trained to think of
Iraqi's as "ragheads", "sand niggers", and "gooks". Bush tell's
us he wants a kinder, gentler nation: He doesn't.
We initiated the biggest air offensive in all human history
opposing a Third World country of 17 million people. We dropped
ten times the payload capacity in six weeks than was used on
Japan during the last fourteen months of W.W.II; including the
nuclear devastation of Hiroshima AND Nagasaki.
America lost 200 soldiers to the Gulf war. Iraq lost 200,000 men
women and children; thousand of which were mowed down by the war
machine while trying to run away. This figure does not reflect
the hundreds of thousands which will die from poor medical
treatment and viral diseases.
If Mr. Bush is so concerned with "Freedom", then why did he not
interfere with the execution of hundreds of Chinese students who
were being tortured for "democracy"? The answer is simple: we
would have lost. It would not have been good for American moral.
He felt Americans needed a "sure thing" to cure us from the
"Vietnam Syndrome"; a disease which makes one oppose war.
Bush needs the support of the American people in order to justify
spending obscene amounts of money on the defense budget. It
looks as though he has succeeded. If you think you can trust him
remember this: "Read my lips, no new taxes".
No, I'm not proud of this...Are you?
Love is the law, love under will.
(There is a group called OUT NOW, they have an incredible
newsletter filled with factual data about the Gulf War called
"WAR WATCH". I highly recommend it to those who want to know
story without the Pentagon induced propaganda. Their address

MOST FAVORED TRADE STATUS?!?!?!?
Historical Amnesia is a disease spread by crooked government by
the news media which allows us to forget just how hard we were
screwed in the past in hopes that they can screw us a little
harder in the future.
Two years ago today Chinese students demanded their freedom and
protested for democracy in Tienamen Square. It was one of the
bloodiest most talked about massacres in this decade. Students
were collected and executed randomly; the students pleaded for
the U.S. to help, but it chose to sit back and do nothing. The
Bush administration didn't even threaten them by ceasing all
trade with China. It could have started a "coalition" against
China, but just like the bully in the school playground, Bush
only picks fights with those he knows he can beat.
This time Bush has either overestimated the media's ability
to brainwash; or the American's people's ability to remember.
Only a couple of years have gone by and he has declared that he
wants to renew "most favored trade status" to a country who has
imposed a TOTAL news blackout concerning the Tienamen Square
anniversary. A country who sentenced student union newspaper
writers to 15 years in prison and the student organizers and
protesters it didn't execute to a 7 to 10 year imprisonment; they
got off easy.
If we are the world's prototype for "democracy" you gotta wonder
if it's worth giving your life for it. Our Founding Fathers
would be ashamed.

A QABALISTIC VIEW OF DEATH
by Secundus Kerub
"Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: Verily
thou shalt not die, but live!"
LIBER AL II.21
As if it wasn't enough to justify one's own existence, we have
this uncanny desire to discover what lies ahead after the
physical body seizes to cooperate in this thing we call "life".
Alot of superstition, and fear has been placed upon this natural
phenomena by the "repent before it's too late" club. Since I am
not dead, and my recollection of past existences are (for the
moment) as the flickers of a candle in a dark room, it would be
impossible (as well as pretentious) for me to speak as though I
had some authority on the subject.
My intention here is to share some of my thoughts and experiences
which I discovered while practicing Liber H.H.H. in Magick in
Theory and Practice. I acknowledge that at best, should there be
any Truth in the opinion which follows, it is, at this point,
only Truth to me.
The deity within us all constantly plays the game of "hide and go
seek". And we, being the jolly good sports that we are, play the
endless game knowing that we will probably not find It. After
all, its not the kill, but the thrill of the chase. Hunters we
Perhaps this fascination with this after-life comes from the
subconscious knowledge that we are immortal. Perhaps it is one
of the necessary steps in self-discovery. Alot of maybes.
We have heard countless of stories from people who have been
dead, and for one reason or another; have returned. Most
experienced visions which were very similar in nature. The
typical "white light".
We know that light is a reflection which changes color according
to the speed of its vibration.
We see the Tree of Life as a glyph containing 10 colored Spheres
(which have been called "the 10 faces of God") and the 22 Paths
which connect them. Look at the uppermost Sphere which we know
as Kether and let's call that "Light", fluid, moving, etc. The
whole of the Universe concentrated and focused within one
Now let's look at the bottom Sphere, Malkuth, the Kingdom, the
material plane, the place where all Souls experience Life in
human bodies. Let's call this "Physical Existence".
Let's suppose that the pure Light which emanates from Kether
slows down as it moves away from its nucleus, changing color and
becoming more "solid" as it moves away from its source, we thus
have the other Spheres on the Tree to display the different
stages of this transmutation.
It has been said by the ancients: "Kether is in Malkuth, and
Malkuth is in Kether but after another manner", or "as above so
below". This could indicate that Kether WAS Malkuth, Light WAS
Darkness, Fluidness WAS Solid, after each had been transformed by
a separation which occurred within itself, a division, much like
that of a cell. Malkuth is solidified Light. We are that Light
Our Holy Book says:" For I am divided for love's sake, for the
chance of union". The Great Work is the Path of return. The
return to the source. Also; "There is no bond that can unite the
divided but love", which tells us that the driving force of the
journey back is love. The journey ends when we reach that Light
from whence we came: Kether, Union with Nuit. Our mission must
be to accomplish this Union consciously.
It has been said that Death is the friend of the weary traveler
who has lost his way, the initiating officer to the mysteries of
immortality. It is not to be feared, but welcomed as a ally and
respected as the teacher that will one day provide us all with
the opportunity of looking at Our Lady of the Stars face to face.
SHIT LIST SHIT LIST SHIT LIST SHIT LIST SHIT LIST SHIT LIST SHIT
This issue's honor goes out to yet another greedy industry. In
some states the billboard industry is lobbying to pass
legislation which would enable the cutting of trees that may
happen to be blocking the view of the signs from the roads. They
claim that it is too cost intensive to move the billboards to
areas which are barren; apparently it is cheaper to just chop
trees down. I guess they have decided that they would protect us
from having to look at those awful green and brown things. If it
is of any comfort, government does not quite know how to deal
with this strange request. There are two factors which motivate
politicians to vote one way or the other: The first is money,
and you can bet the billboard industry will do their share with
"campaign donations". The other is VOTES. Communicate with your
representatives and let them know that you will not stand for
corporate diversion of environmental concerns. YOUR VOTING POWER
IS IMPORTANT: USE IT OR LOSE IT.
Next Year Method
Another hassle-free of composting is to collect your kitchen
waste in a bucket with a lid until it is full. Then, dig a hole
about 12 inches in diameter and 12 inches deep next to a tree.
Put your kitchen wastes into the hole and cover it up when it is
full. The material will decompose and the tree will absorb all
of the nutrients from it. If you plan on composting in a big
way, you can dig trenches in your yard in an area not presently
being used, fill the trenches with grass clippings, leaves, and
kitchen waste, and cover it up as it fills. Remember to keep the
area moist. When the trench is filled up start another trench.
Use this area for gardening next year. You can actually get away
with composting meats and fats with this method, however, you
must bury it right away under at least 12 inches of soil in order
to keep animals from trying to dig it up.

different next time you entertain friends try this recipe.
However, don't assume that ALL flowers are edible; most look good
enough to eat but are poisonous, as in the case of the Lily of

chemicals is found on\in the flowers.

LITTLE NAPOLEON AWARD
Last issue's award went out to Saddam Hussein for having spilt
thousands of gallons of oil into The Gulf. We, at The RPSTOVAL
Review, feel it would be unfair AND unpatriotic to deny this
prestigious award to one of our own country's respected leaders.
Therefore, without any further ado, we officially join General
Norman Schwarzkopf to the likes of Saddam Hussein. You know what
they say: "Birds of a feather flock together".
It seems that General Schwarzkopf (displaying the highest form of
"military intelligence" he could muster) decided that the most
effective way to halt the flow of crude oil was to bomb pipes
which connect oil fields with a tanker loading buoy.
Environmental officials are calling this single act "largest oil
spill in history", and it was done intentionally.
C.I.A. = Cocaine Import Agency
Put the C.I.A. on trial.
In July 1990, 6 men associated with the Bank of Credit & Commerce
and the Colombian Medellin cartel were sentenced to 20-30 years
in prison. The charges were based on conspiracy involving the
laundering of $14 million in cocaine profits to 6 U.S. cities.
After a two year investigation that 'uncovered' an undercover
U.S. government agent involved in the conspiracy, the U.S.
admitted to helping this same cartel launder $32 million in

the drug profits of the United States Government? Watch this
Well folks, as if it wasn't enough that the Savings and Loans
scandals are going to cost tax payers in the billions, the S&Ls
are legislating to screw us out of what little we have left.
The savings and loan industry want Congress to regulate credit
unions out of existence. Should they become successful the
consumer will no longer have an alternative to banking.
Because of the FSLIC crisis, the S&Ls have been eliminated as a
separate competing industry. They now come under the bank
regulators and will probably become banks or go out of existence,
and credit unions will be the only remaining independent
alternative to the banking system. It's like they are saying:
"if we can't have you no one else will"; this takes alot of nerve
considering what they have done to the numerous people who
trusted them with their money.
The ultimate goal of the bankers is to place the credit union
movement under the control of bank regulators. They would like
to see credit union capital taxed. This would turn credit unions
into S&Ls and would disable a credit union's ability to offer
better, less costly services. This has already been advocated by
the bankers to members of the Federal Reserve Board through the
Federal Advisory Council.
You see, while banks make their money from service charges (see
"101 Ways To Beat The System, RPSTOVAL Review #3) most credit
unions make their money on interest and investments. This is the
reason credit unions can offer most services free of charge and
require a small amount of starting capital to open an account;
usually about $25.00, instead of the $100.00 minimum most banks
demand. In most cases, if they can't make you money they will
at least save you some in service fees. They also are more
willing to invest in the individual than banks who want a sure
For YOUR financial security Credit unions must be allowed to
maintain a separate and nonpartisan network and a total guarantee
as to their immunity and soundness. Without them our only choice
will be to submit to the will of an extremely deceitful and
corrupt industry. Here is what you can do:
1. Check out your local credit union. I think you will be
surprised by the services they offer. Patronize them, your money
is safer there than at the bank who has been rapping you.
2. Write a letter to your representatives telling them why you
like your credit union and that you don't want them to change it.
Be specific about what you like about your credit union.
3. Spread the word! Most things of this nature happen under our
nose, with very little regard of what you as an individual think
or believe. Make yourself heard, tell your friends and tell your
friends to tell their friends.
This is an attack on our finances as well as an insult to our
intelligence. They think they can get away with this because
they know most people wont do anything until it effects them
personally. Write letters, be accounted for; VOTE.

On September 30th, reporter Mike Wallace of the news show "60
Minutes" implied that the Bush administration and U.S. Army had
concealed the fact that 4,000 civilians had died during the
invasion of Panama in 1989. In the same breath he exposed the
expulsion of an air-force general; Michael Dugan, for publicly
admitting that the pentagon's plan called for the destruction of
Baghdad and other civilian targets during the war with Iraq.
The RPSTOVAL Review tips its proverbial hat to Mr. Mike Wallace
for reporting things "as they are", AND to Mr. Michael Dugan for
putting his career on the line that others may know the Truth.
FLASH: DISCOVERY OF NEW ELEMENT
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by
physicist. The element, tentatively named Administratium, has no
protons or electrons, and thus has an atomic number of 0.
However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75
vice neutrons, and 111 assistant vice neutrons. This gives it an
atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a
force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like
particles called morons.
Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it
can be detected chemically, as it impedes every reaction it comes
in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount
of Administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to
complete, when it would normally have occurred in less than one
second. Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately
three years, at which time it does not actually decay, but
instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons,
vice neutrons, and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some
studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after
Research at other laboratories indicate that Administratium
occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at
certain points such as government agencies, large corporations,
and universities; and it can usually be found in the newest, best
appointed and best maintained buildings.
Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at
any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive
reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being
made to determine how Administratium can be controlled to prevent
irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.
FORMER HOSTAGES DEMAND ANSWERS
Eight of the individuals who were held hostage in Teheran, Iran
during the Carter\Reagan presidential elections are demanding a
bipartisan congressional investigation with full subpoena power
to explore allegations that the Reagan\Bush administration
delayed their release in order to manipulate the election.
Although Bush flatly denies these allegations, the suspicions
Bush now faces are greatly magnified by two important facts:
1. The reality that there are two crucial days for which Bush is
2. The fact that THE DAY Reagan was sworn in as President of The
United States of America the hostages were released and the
weapons shipments began.
When questioned, the Secret Service stated that it could not
reveal Bush's whereabouts by reason of the Privacy act. The
primary witness to both, the alleged and proven affair is the
late William J. Casey; who was Reagan's campaign director and
later became head of the C.I.A.
According to Bani-Sadr, Iran's president during most of the
hostage negotiations, the Reagan\Bush regime were responsible
for delaying the hostage's release.
It is possible that the truth may come out before we are faced
with another four years of "read my lips...". Even if he is
found guilty, it is more likely that most people would rather
live in a "kinder, gentler nation", than admit to having been
THE HOLY GUARDIAN ANGEL vs. GOD
by Secundus Kerub
"Be strong, o man, lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture:
fear not that any God shall deny thee for this".
LIBER AL II.22
You and I can both look at a pencil and agree that it is a pencil
because our senses have sent our brains similar information.
However, since two objects cannot occupy the same space at the
same time our perceptions will vary because our position to the
pencil will differ.
This illustrates the great fall of conventional Religion. Every
Sect has a perspective of God which differs from other sects,
they will not allow any deviance from what their experience with
God has been. They have failed to realize that the experience of
the Knowledge of God is different to every one depending on where
they are in relation to the rest of the Universe, as it has been
"God" is a word which attempts to describe an entity which
admittedly can not be described, yet everyone who uses the word
while preaching claims to know what "God" wants you to do. If
"God" wants to tell you something, God will tell you Him or
Herself. God wanted men and women to think independently, it is
for this reason that God disguised Itself as a Serpent and
"tempted" the pair.
As Gnostics we strive to develop a personal relationship with
God, without the middle man. All that is needed to accomplish
the Union of Man and God is within our hearts, this is the
mystery of the Christ. Conventional Religions Cults will go
through a great deal to contradict this. They want people to be
dependent of them (just like the crack dealer who likes
for his customers to be addicted), this way they can continue
selling you real estate in heaven.
Imagine what would happen if everybody suddenly realized that
they did not need ANYONE to show them the way anymore. What
would these Cults do for money, power, and political pull?
Every man and woman should strive to create their own religions
according to their own Wills and evolutionary development. It is
a good idea to study all religions so that one can understand the
Inner Mysteries hidden therein. Only by this Knowledge can one
come to the Understanding which is necessary in creating one's
own Myth. Religion has alot to offer and one can learn much
about the culture and lives of the people who follow the religion
that you are studying.
Remember that since Truth is beyond speech it cannot be
communicated. Therefore, when reading any Holy Book do not take
the literary meaning as the Truth, or you will fall into the trap
that the Fundamentalist has fallen into. Also, don't trust
anyone who claims to know the Truth. Truth is protected from the
vulgar because it is written in a language that only the
Initiated will understand. One must become a vehicle of Truth,
and it will find you.
Peoples experience of "God" will differ because God will manifest
Herself to the individual according to their race, culture,
education, and previous experience.
Because the Thelemic Magician understands this basic principle of
philosophy he uses the term HOLY GUARDIAN ANGEL when referring to
his or her "God". The Magician knows that the image in which God
has manifested Itself to the individual is only one in an
infinite at Its disposal.
Conventional philosophies go to great lengths to make one believe
that their God is the only one. They boast about Its Omnipotence
and Omnipresence, yet, they fail to recognize their own God as
manifested in other cultures. In essence, they blaspheme the
same God that they claim to serve.
The image which your Angel has given you is uniquely yours.
Remember to show others the benefit of knowing their own God, as
the sages of time tell us: "In true religion there is no sect,
therefore take heed that thou blaspheme not the name by which
another knoweth his God; for if you do this thing in Jupiter thou
will blaspheme IHVH and in Osiris IHShVH. Ask and ye shall have!
Seek, and ye shall find! Knock, and it shall be opened unto
And remember: Perception is nine tenths of the Law.
Golden Dawn Enochian Magic
by Pat Zalewski
Well, I always figured that if some one attempted to cram all of
the information pertaining to Golden Dawn Enochian Magic in one
book it would be the biggest piece of New Age crap on the
bookstore shelves. And it might have been, if anyone else would
have done it. Unlike previous authors who have attempted the
same task, Pat Zalewski explains the material from a practical
point of view, and clarifies in great detail the mechanics
involved without the superstitious rederic which seems to follow
this doctrine. Practically written, Golden Dawn Enochian Magic
is a thorough and scholarly look into a much talked about, but
little understood subject. There is something in this book for
everybody; the historian types will enjoy it for its in-depth
historical data. The curious types will be pleased by the way it
thoroughly explains the methods of use. The experienced Magician
will savor the text as an "Enochian Encyclopedia" to be used as a
reference for many years. In short, anyone interested in Magick
will see this book as one of the most valuable, informative texts
available on the market today. If you want to understand the
Enochian system, buy it.

IMAGE OF THE WORD
(A Phantom Fantasy)

There are two ways to view a word.
The heathen hears a word and says - "This word is empty." and
then turns it upside down.
The believer hears it and says - "This word is full of love!" and
then sips some of its invisible liquid - and says - "Ah! nectar
so sweet - I can hardly distinguish it from my own."
Is this not the same thing that we feel when we feel when we
