Rudolf Hess: We've Got Nazis (1941)

Esoteric mysteries always come back to the Nazis. There does seem to be a lot of strangeness with Hess. For example, when his wife saw him she didn’t know him. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT? Sure, it could have been about the Duke of Hamilton being opposed to Churchill, but what if it wasn’t?

Wreck of the Valiant (1930)

But what else was scavenged? And why did it really sink?

The Pistis Sophia (translated 1921)

One of the more important texts involving the Goddess. Ignore her at your own peril.

Mary Shelley's MORTAL IMMORTAL (1833)

Because it’s about an immortal. Mary Shelley is totally involved in all of this. SHE KNEW THINGS.

Babbage's Analytical Engine (1822)

It was Ada Lovelace’s additions to this Menabrea translation that got her known as the first computer programmer. But she was just a girl, so all she was good for in the Victorian geek world was cosplay at the local steampunk festival.

Ada Lovelace, Genius (1815-1852)

That’s really all you need to say.

Cagliostro, Alchemist #4 (1743-1795)

Kind of a dick and a grifter, he was also involved in the Affair of the Necklace, a movie nobody saw. Hooked up with Count St. Germain, which would have been a great magical buddy movie.

Count Saint-Germain, man of mystery (1710-?)

May be immortal, which inevitably means that people think he’s vampire. For heaven’s sake!

The equatorium, weird device #2 (1600)

Remember Y2K? This device, built around 1600, had the millennium bug. And there seems to be no other mention of it except for this article. CONSPIRACY???

The Voynich Manuscript (1586-ish)

As fun as the Nazis quests for weirdness can be, nothing tops the Voynich Manuscript. It has never been translated. It may be a Cathar manuscript, but it may not be. It could be a fraud perpetrated by John Dee upon Rudolf II, but it probably isn’t. Of course, it probably isn’t written in angel language either.
