In Mabel Collins novel The Blossom and the Fruit: The True Story of a Black Magician, she depicts how an adept has the World Chessboard in front of him in a secret place, and lets the pieces play, and how he controls the Karma of a continent upon one very simple board. Thanks to the archives of the British Museum we have evidence that Pike, a leading Mason who knew H.P.B. before the start of the T.S. and was at one time a member, was an occultist of this mold. His doctrine is set forth in his letter to his Grand Masters of the Palladian Councils:
"That which we say to the crowd is 'we worship God'. But it is the God that one worships without superstition. The religion should be, by all us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine... Yes! Lucifer is god. And Unfortunately Adonay (the name given by Luciferians to the God we worship) is God also.... for the absolute can only exist as two Gods. Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy: and the true, and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay: but Lucifer. God of Light, and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay the God of Darkness an Evil."
Quoted in the "The Dark Gods" Roberts and Gilbertson, 1980
That Pike and other Mason/Occultists earlier sought to affect politics, affect wars and revolutions is outlined in Commander William Carr's (1858- 1959) book Pawns in the Game . .

Masons of course, try to make this all part of Leo Taxil's work. But they do not enter into the British archive letters of Pike or Mazzini his Italian Masonic co-conspiritor. Nor do they look at the picture in wider detail.
