Secret History of the World Part 1

In a prior post, I hinted that there were two versions of science, one for the masses, and one for those in the know. Could the same be true of history? Mark Booth, author of The Secret History of the World as Laid Down by the Secret Societies seems to think so. Mr. Booth tells us in the introduction how he befriended someone who happened to be a member of a secret society. His friend gave him many of the concepts set forth in the book. Mr. Booth apparently also had the opportunity for initiation in the secret society, but the secrecy oath was a sticking point.

The first thing you will probably notice about the book is how many eminent scientists, philosophers and writers were involved. I already mentioned Newton, but Dante, Cervantes, Francis Bacon, Dostoevsky, Freud and Jung are also mentioned. But I don't want you to think that this is just about history. The important thing about this book is that it provides an excellent introduction to occult philosophy.
