“Is that something that really happened, Arthur?”
“Three women were hung. Written within the trial
papers. August 25, 1682. hung up in Heavitree, Exeter.”
Arthur takes a deep breath. “Henrietta said we have to remember who we are. ‘How can we remember who we are?’ I asked her. ‘All we see around us is The Game
. Our memories go back as far as birth. Most of us have no recall even of birth. This is who we are.’ She laughed. ‘And they use us as their tool because we do not think!
We accept what they tell us!’
“You believe in the Devil, Conny?”
“I think so. Do you?”
“I believe in The Kingdom as being part of the Dream. I also believe those pretending to be ‘Holy,’ are
themselves part of the Dream. And those pretending to
be ‘Holy’ look what they brought us. Three centuries of torture and burning. Pontificate since I studied real history has come to mean something quite different.”
“To when I believed!”
“You once believed in God!”
“Are you trying to get me burnt for heresy?”
Constance laughs. “Fortunately they are not doing that
“No! But they will do it another way. They never stop torturing. They will find a way, give some reasoning they concoct.
“These ‘Papas’ these ‘Fathers,’ in Rome, Switzerland, Germany, Christendom, whether of the Protestant or the Roman faith, ‘Let us torture,’ they say. ‘Let us burn the witches! Let us cleanse ourselves of this evil!’
“I have been in the ‘dungeons,’ the real places where pain instruments cleansed the evil. A ‘Bluebeard’ with another name, an ‘Inquisitor,’ someone possessed to cause pain to another.
“What will be the new ‘Boots of leather,’ where boiling water is poured around a foot. Where the leg and foot is placed inside an iron casing, wooden or metal wedges hammered into the casing, hammered to crush the foot, to crush the leg. They did that, you know. They did it in the name of Jesus.
“How can we devise a choke pear a metal piece in the
shape of a pear, forced into the mouth. The mind in its
wild conceptualising even has come to oil or molten lead
filling the boot that holds a victim’s feet.
“A metal casing around the feet filled with water, having
the feet then raised upon a fire, the water inside the casing
brought to boiling. This happened. Not once, it was part of
the stock of torturing that went from country to country, all
across ‘Christendom.’ Do it in the name of ‘Christ.’ This
is what ‘Christ’ would want?”
“It does seem incredulous.”
“You wish to hear more?”
“You think I should not know!”
“I bring it to stress they really do know we are very much
“Most animals of course would turn away from doing
such a thing.
“Killing might be part of their instinct, and
fighting when the mating season is upon them, but torture,
only a few animals engage in torture. Mostly it is humans.
“Humans have that brain! Human can devise, create, play
in a way that is beyond an animal’s ability to play!
“Humans can torture, and create a reason for torturing
another. It can be made part of a ritual of cleansing society,
to devise means of pain, means of causing another suffering.
“The Catapelta in which a man, a woman, a child will
be placed to have their bones crushed.
“The cucking-stool, the woman’s punishment, where one
will be tied to a chamber pot. The magistrate setting time
for such humiliation to continue. Placed upon a tumbrel
cart, dragged around, a ‘scold,’ a woman accused of gossip,
a wife accused of having a bad temper, a prostitute engaged
in brothel activity.
“The savagery has no bounds once it begins. Only death
saves the person who has fallen into the grip of the state,
into a judge’s clutches.
“With the witch frenzy reaching
new heights, ducking stools were done away with. With
more conceptualisation of how to inflict pain and terror, an
accused woman now will have her right thumb tied to her
left big tow. Tied like this she will be thrown into a pond.
By not sinking she proves she is not a witch. By floating
she has proven she is a witch and hung. Judicium Dei
trial by God. Except it was trial by extremely sick humanity.
“For men there is a metal long thin tube. Following
the thoughts of an inner being possessing some-a-one,
some artisan comes up with lining this tube with tiny spikes.
The tube is heated until the metal is red with heat. Then
it is placed around the male member of a victim. These
tubes exist. You can see them in any respectable Christian
“Did you know ovens have been built for the purpose of cooking humans, for cooking their children. Lambert
Daneau, one devout Calvinist theology professor in Geneva,
he proposes a great building of death ovens across Europe. ‘The Sorcerers, a very useful dialogue and very necessary for
,’ is an English translation of this work brought
forth from possession.
“Inside these small dark ovens the temperature is made
to rise slowly intensifying the agony of those placed inside.
Only when the screaming comes and then the death, is it
considered at an end.
“Jean Bodin, French lawyer and philosopher, writes in
his book: ‘De la Demonamanie des Sorciers
,’ that such
burnings are lenient. He castigates any prince of state who
might pardon a witch.
“‘This greatly insults God,’ he writes. Bodin’s book made it acceptable to torture children.
“People require very little to persuade them to do very
heinous things if the state says it is needed for whatever
purpose a governance in its perversion deems a need.
“Bodin, who advocates torture, is said to be involved in
practises to bring forth the devil. I have no doubt he is
possessed by some inner entity to write such a manual. A
search takes place of his house by the General Prosecutor
because of his reputed devil practices. We have in the department some
French notes, a copy of a memorandum that the prosecutor
was prevented from continuing his investigation, prevented
by intervention from higher authorities.
“The rack, where victims are stretched to the point of
dislocation of limb, where a popping sound is waited to
be heard in the joint, followed always by the screaming.
Such pain is enhanced by placing hot irons upon the body.
Pincers taken red from the fire, placed upon nipples, the
nose, the male or female reproductive organs.
“The Pope’s Pear, named after Innocent IV. Humans do
have a way of showing they know where all of this originates
from. A cruel iron instrument shaped like a pear inserted
into a woman’s private area. Claws within the instrument
turned to tear the human inside. A lock in the handle
prevents any removal from the screaming woman without
a key. Just in case some human might find a moment of
“Innocent IV with his papal bull Ad extirpanda
the legal argument for torture being acceptable. But no
state has ever needed any outside mandate for cruelty. It
does not need one now.
“These instruments fashioned in some fire pit of a mind humans conceptualise that which will torture, then make
them, then give, sell them, to other humans to use them.
“The crank will not harm a limb. The crank is used to
penetrate into the intestines. A conscious person having
the crank placed inside them, will at the moment of intense
pain feel the sudden rotation inside. Then the screams of
another person becomes real.”

Arthur bows his head in agreement at Constance. “Yes!
Witchcraft laws were directly aimed at women. For
those mentored by the dragons, the male phallus must wipe
out all traces of female lifestyle teachings witchery.
Occult knowledge very much continues for those who
look to the dragons for mentoring, the educated rich using
fanciful language to disguise their skill.
“Men and women who practise herbal remedies, practice
any healing that is of the ancient female path of medicine,
they must be destroyed.
“These who try to assist those who are sick with their healing knowledge of plants and root, or whatever they have learnt from inner or outer sources perhaps chanting that itself holds a mind-changing property and through mind can have miraculous effect these ideas must be destroyed
“I have told you of the visit of Henrietta and I when we
travelled to Languedoc in Southern France. I have spoken
about Constantine. When people seek help outside normal
channels, this takes power away from who wish to control. Ideas of going into inner worlds, of having experience of different realities, varied frequencies, takes a person outside the channel of religion. Religion is a controlling mechanism. Such the purpose of Constantine and his courtly gatherings of the religious.
“In Christendom, including Britain, ‘Trial by ordeal’ a person made to hold red hot ploughshares, or a red hot iron, made to remove a stone from a pot of boiling water, drowning and varied horrors has long been practised.
“But also in Celtic parts, including Britain, witchery
healing has been tolerated even with Christianity. Plant
and root teaching, the most effective part of such healing,
was within the Celtic Christian tradition.
“Witchery can be used to harm others, people believe witchery is used for such purpose, but in Britain, and many places with Celtic and pagan traditions, witchery, accepted as more than Earth bodily reality, is frightening, but also is part of the life of the ordinary person.
“Maximum retribution for someone discovered having
practiced the dark arts of witchery in Britain, until the lead
up to the Inquisition period, would be banishment from the
“The core centre of the Roman church Popery: Papa,
Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, Priests, had become so
corrupted that people were turning away in great numbers,
forming their own groupings.
“The Cathars, the Waldensians, those who became the
Huguenot, who found themselves banished to places such
as America after great mass torture, these societies were
tearing down the belief system that the Roman church in
its corruption sought to maintain to provide an income for
it vast clergy. Something had to be done.
“Heresy was used. Many states in Europe had enacted
law that those found heretical could be burned. Those
within the church could not kill a person, but they were
the ones to determine if a person was heretical. The state
could not do this.
“This was a religious matter. The inquisition system
had the church first determining condemnation, removing
itself, handing the person over to the magistrate system for
determination of punishment by the state as a heretic
which in Europe meant being burnt, or as mentioned with
the ovens, being cooked alive.
“Innocent VIII consolidating bulls and especially the
bulls of Innocents IV ‘Summis Desiderantes,’ Desiring with Supreme Adore, if you can believe the title the fear of
witchcraft reached into deep lunacy.
“Both church and state involved, money was the prime reason to continue with the slaughter. Those who held power within the state had no reason to challenge that which was providing a good income.
“German overlords were given two thirds of the estate of a
victim, the church coffers one third. The Inquisitor, who
did the work of torture, would be paid an agreed income
for his work. Where principalities were Bishoprics, fiefdoms
overlorded by a bishop, the bishops kept it all.
“Payment was not only made to the Inquisitor, state
judges had to be paid. Payment made to those who stacked
the faggots for burning, payment to tradesman such as
those who provided the faggots, inn-keepers paid well when
an inquisition party came to the town.
“Because the state was involved, much of the torture
that took place is documented. One describes a woman
where with hands bound spirit alcohol is thrown over the
woman’s hair, a lighted flame placed to the hair.
“Sulphur smeared across the body is set to fire. The
document states that after this the woman is strung to the
ceiling while the Inquisitor and his accomplished torturer
go for a meal.
“The meal lasts four hours. All details are recorded for
exact accounting purposes. The expense charged for the
dinner at the inn. The daily charge for the inquisitor’s
rooms. The cost of the henchmen assisting the inquisitor, the cost of
“When the torturers return, the woman is lowered some
distance from hanging on the ceiling. Heavy weights tied to
her dangling legs, a post with sharp spikes nailed into them,
is pressed into her. Then thumbs and toes are squeezed
inside a vice where they bleed.
“The record states a whipping takes place
before the Inquisitor takes time for another meal. All costs,
including the burning costs, is levied to the estate of the
woman and her family.
“In Spain the heresy trials take more than two hundred
thousand lives. Women, men, children tortured to confess,
then upon confession, burned.
“England, Wales and Ireland from before the time of
Ecgberht in 734 had a history of giving a penance to those
called witches, the penance being a fast over a period of
time. The Bulls of Innocent IV and succeeding Popes, the
infamous Innocent VIII reasoning, did away with this.
“Innocent VIII, keeping a wife and children, as many of
his fellow Cardinals and Bishops, ghoulish talk circulates
of the first recorded instance of direct transfusion of blood.
As the Pontiff, Papa Innocent VIII lies upon a bed, a boy
also lies upon a bed. A pipe is inserted into both the boy
and Innocent VIII, the blood of the two mingling as it is
supposed to flow to Innocent VIII to keep him alive. Boys
in succession die, infection coming to the boys. The direct
“Scotland is swept with the madness of ‘witchery.’ A
tortured person will denounce someone to save themselves
from pain. When the pain stops the person will often in
the goodness of their heart renounce their accusation. This
happens again and again. Recantations, because there are so many, become accepted as that which most people under torture do Charges made under
torture are always taken as truth, renouncing ignored.
“If a woman being tried as a witch is poor, payment for the trial and punishment has to be given up by those in the village in which she has lived her life. Payment to the judge, payments for those who do the torturing, payment for the person who makes up the stake. In Scotland, no small sum going to James IV, our delightful monarch James I.
“James, the profiteer of torture, is so taken with the
proceedings of witchery and torture, he produces writings
bound into three volumes: Daemonologie, In Forme of a
“One tale is that of a woman having heated metal drawn
around her arms, which in the process of the torturing,
crushes her arms. This same woman is forced to observe
her son having his feet placed into an iron boot. She has to
watch while the blows given to the wedges placed into the
boot crush her son’s feet to pulp.
“Hundreds of thousands of women in the kingdoms of Christendom perish by torture, and consequent burning.
“Whippings so that the flesh is separated from the bone, the person, man or woman or child, being whipped until there is only bone.
“Women tortured in front of their husbands, in front of
their children. Children tortured in front of their mothers.
Grandparents brought to stand and watch as a their ‘witch’
daughter receives the test.
“Does this have the approval the populace? Some did
speak out. These find themselves taken by the Inquisitors,
placed under the same torture to determine if they are
witches, dying the same death of burning.
“I cannot speak of some of the engagements of those possessed to torture. That which we think of ‘Evil’ at its most supine,
practiced in the name of Christ. A Bedlamatic pleasure
seeing a child five years old put to death as a witch.
“Of course they still do this in Africa. Hysteria and the
lust to kill another is not restricted to this continent and
“Books, ‘Malleus Maleficarum
’ intellectual reasoning for
those needing a wordy weight of a book for horror they are
about to perform upon another, then ‘Domonolatria Libri
’ first accepted, then as enough of the populace are
repulsed, these reasoning themselves denounced.
“It is said Innocent VIII had sixteen children. A one
who obviously did not like the Papa’s professor of Roman
law at the University of Rome, historian Stefano Infessura
in his writings states that the blood of the boys dripping
into the Pope to keep him alive, the Pope who had brought
death and misery to hundreds of thousands in Europe, this
technique performed by a doctor who held the Jewish faith,
as many physicians of the day did, the boys were given a
ducat each for allowing their blood to mix with the ‘Papa.’
The boys were not told of the boys who had died.
“‘De modo quo homines in bestiales formas transformant
,’ Arthur laughs, ’concerning the measure by which
man into beast is formed.’ This is a description of how a
witch will call upon the devil to turn a man into a beast.
This becomes the building of thought for both the masses,
and those who are able to read, to accept. And for those
who set up the law within the state, to the politicians who succumb to the possession that must come over a person
who creates such law.
“The red hot iron collar, the iron boots where your feet
are gradually burnt off so that the ends of the legs are
stumps. The Strappado, the Sqassation, the Heretic’s Fork,
the Pope’s Pear, the Maiden of Nuremberg.
“Ah! The ‘Maiden of Nuremberg.’ I have seen this
sarcophagus that has the shape of an ancient Goddess. It
is still there in Germany for all to see. Spikes have been
designed by some artisan where the spikes pierce the body
both from the front and from the back, but designed so as
not to puncture vital organs. A person, a victim, is forced
into this human shaped sarcophagus, the door closed slowly
as the spikes begin to pierce
“The casing is so thick that once closed nothing can be
heard of the screams. It is said the doors will be opened
and shut, depending upon the fancy of the torturers, the
same body parts pierced.

evil. I would burn them all,’ a translation of the words of
