Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor by Cintra Pirata ~ aloha oe*

Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor


Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor for instance was the subject of a whispering campaign by his enemies in his family. He was more intrigued by occult learning such as astrology and alchemy, which was mainstream in the Renaissance period. He suffered from periodic bouts of "melancholy" (depression), which was common in the Habsburg line. These became worse with age. Rudolf is also the ruler in many of the legends of the Golem of Prague..At least he was left all alone ~ and in the night time he used to walk around in his castle in company of an old toothles lion..


Rudolf died three days after the death of his favorite lion, on January 20, 1612. In his final hours of life, he rejected the sacraments like his father, Maximilian II.
Rudolf collected clocks, and had a passion for plants and animals. He loved his lion, which was a gift from the Sultan of Turkey. The lion was an ancient symbol of rank and power. The lion was one of the oldest symbols of the Bohemian Kings, as Holy Roman Emperors..
..In his calm state, Rudolf was described as "measured and reasonable." He was well-informed and curious. He spoke German, Spanish, Italian, Latin, and French. He understood Czech. He was enigmatic and could be generous and humane. However, he was rather disappointed with the world in general..


  • Tycho Brahe - astronomer and Danish alchemist from a noble family.
  • Johannes Kepler - astronomer. Johannes mother was persecuted as a witch. Kepler died November 15, 1630 in Regensburg. He was a professional astronomer to General Albrecht von Wallenstein, Duke of Friedland and Meckleburg, in the Duchy of Sagan.
  • Jakub Krocinek - astrologer. Jakub had two sons, the youngest son killed his own brother.
  • Trithemius - a Benedictine monk who was into "natural magic."
  • Parcelsus - an alchemist and physician. Parcelsus was also known as Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (his real name).
  • Henry Cornelius Agrippa - sought occult knowledge. He was a Neoplatonist and alchemist.
  • Guiseppe Arcimboldo - painter
  • Bartholomaeus Spranger - painter
  • John Dee - occult philosopher
  • Ramon Lull - Christian mystic
  • Giordano Bruno - occult philosopher and magician.
  • Albertus Magnus - alchemist who practiced "white magic."
  • Dr. Tadeas Hajel (Thaddeus Hagecius) was from Prague. He was a master of ars magica and occult philosophy.
  • Roger Bacon - alchemist. "Blue magic" referred to necromancers or witches. Many of the men above were accused of these and had to beware of the Inquisitors.

Occult sciences:

Rudolf II was a curious man. He had frequent bouts of insanity which allowed the structure of his government to be undermined. More and more of the Holy Roman Empire’s work was taken on by Matthias, the third brother of Rudolf, though he had not been given permission to do this by Rudolf. By 1600, the Habsburg Court seemed to be on the verge of breaking up under the strain of having an emperor who could not govern combined with a man who did not have a remit to rule..

The German princes tried to take advantage of this problem but in 1600 rather than combine their efforts, they were split amongst themselves...

Astrology and alchemy were mainstream science in Renaissance Prague, and Rudolf was a firm devotee of both. His lifelong quest was to find the Philosopher's Stone and Rudolf spared no expense in bringing Europe's best alchemists to court, such as Edward Kelley and John Dee. Rudolf even performed his own experiments in a private alchemy laboratory.[2] When Rudolf was a prince, Nostradamus prepared a horoscope which was dedicated to him as 'Prince and King'..

 *** Rudolf had a very well-stocked library, which was touted as one of the best in Europe. Nostradamus cast Rudolf's birth chart, as did Dee and others. He always wanted to know his fate and was always thinking his death would come in a rare fashion..

Rudolf gave Prague a mystical reputation that persists in part to this day, with Alchemists' Alley on the grounds of Prague Castle a popular visiting place.
Rudolf is also the ruler in many of the legends of the Golem of Prague, either because of or simply adding to his occult reputation..

  ***The Holy Roman Empire was potentially Europe’s greatest state. However, by 1600 the Holy Roman Empire was a mere shadow of its former glory. The heart of the Holy Roman Empire had been Germany. But by 1600, a better term for the area would have been "Germanies" as the heart of the Holy Roman Empire had become split into a mass of princes and states ...

Brave New World (1932) Huxley by Cintra Pirata ~ aloha oe*

Brave New World

Brave New World (1932) is one of the most bewitching and insidious works of literature ever written. An exaggeration? Tragically, no. Brave New World has come to serve as the false symbol for any regime of "universal happiness".. For sure, Huxley was writing a satirical piece of fiction, not scientific prophecy. Hence to treat his masterpiece as ill-conceived futurology rather than a work of great literature might seem to miss the point. Yet the knee-jerk response of "It's Brave New World!" to any blueprint for chemically-driven happiness has delayed research into paradise-engineering for all sentient life.

Brave New World

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Brave New World's ironic title derives from Miranda's speech in William Shakespeare's The Tempest: 
"..O wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't.."
 **Huxley wrote Brave New World in 1931 while he was living in Italy.  Huxley said that Brave New World was inspired by the utopian novels
of H.G. Wells.  Although the novel is set in the future it deals with contemporary issues of the early 20th century..

Brave New World Summary:

In the novel “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley the government tries to prevent its people 
from speaking freely and thinking by giving them soma, a legal drug that is available for them 
every day. Wouldn’t it also be easier for our government to manipulate its people and to know
that there’s nothing left in their heads other than rainbows, pink butterflies and unicorns?
Would the great leaders of our present world go this far to secure their office, and would there
be happier, more peaceful lives for us?

Brave New World’s government supports soma to ensure passiveness of its people and thereby
the stability of their created world. Alcohol, on the contrary, seems like an illegal drug in the 
New World because you become an outsider by drinking it, though it is not forbidden by the 

There would be no way for today’s great leaders to create such a “utopian world,” because to
control a society by such means should not even be the last resort.

Brave New World   We should be asking more questions about how people 
are tested and judged to be mentally ill, disturbed, sick and chronically depressed, hyper-anxious/manic, 
bipolar and the hundreds of other “conditions” such as insomnia..

What is the medical and psychiatric learning theory and diagnosis system that tests and evaluates people’s
 mental, emotional, and physical needs. And what are some problems with these solutions? Are any of the
 solutions Natural, Organic or Loving? How do we learn to conform to social standards of morals, education,
 health, democracy, approval, praise, belonging, being normal, creative, happy or peaceful?
"..Ihad a dream of thousand delights; of lips so sweet and eyes so bright.."

Aldous Huxley's Brave New World:

"Brave New World" warns of the dangers of giving the state control over new and powerful technologies. One
 illustration of this theme is the rigid control of reproduction through technological and medical intervention, including
 the surgical removal of ovaries, the Bokanovsky Process, and hypnopaedic conditioning. Another is the creation of
 complicated entertainment machines that generate both harmless leisure and the high levels of consumption and
 production that are the basis of the World State’s stability. Soma is a third example of the kind of medical, biological,
 and psychological  technologies that Brave New World criticizes most sharply. . http://www.huxley.net/
