'There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." — Genesis 5, v. 4. Beloved Scholar, the Mystery of the Ages has been the birth of the Christ.
The Church has taught that Christ was of Immaculate Conception; but, believe me, that same Church has NOT believed in that Doctrine. It belongs to the men of that oldest and most mighty Fraternity to enlighten you and those who would listen, for we hold the secret, and we will give you it.
Does it seem so very strange that Mary might have conceived without human agency?
It may seem strange to those who know not the secret, but surely the student can guess the secret, for it has been hinted at in all Rosicrucian literature.

"The air is full of an innumerable multitude of creatures of the human form; great lovers of the sciences, subtle, benevolent to the wise, but enemies to the stupid and ignorant.
Their wives and their dangers are of bold and masculine beauty, such as painters have represented the Amazons. "Know also that the seas and rivers are as fully inhabited as the air; the wise ancients have mentioned these populations under the names of Undines or Nymphs.
There are few males among them, but a vast number of females; their beauty is extreme, and the daughters of men are not to be compared to them. "The earth is filled to the centre by Gnomes, a people of small stature, guardians of the treasures of the mines and quarries; they are ingenious, friends of mankind, and easy to command; they furnish the children of the wise with all the money that they require, and ask little for their *See the book, "The Irreconcilable Gnomes, or Continuation to the Comte de Gabalis," published by this house.
