understand it are still on display at the CC -- seem totally
inadequate for the task. There are several pulleys and ropes, and a
few corroded pieces of electrical equipment.
While Leedskalnin was not an initiate of the Western Mystery School
as we know it there is a very curious similarity between his thought
and hermetic thought. The Hermetic doctrine of contraries is realized
in Leedskalnin's practical construction. We can presume that the
electrical equipment in the museum was used to induce this "magnetic
current" into the stones while they were being moved and worked. The
North and the South Poles serve the same function as the Passive and
Active and Positive and Negative in Alchemy including the Father and
Mother in Qabbala. This magnetic force is the same force as described
by Eliphas Levi (Astral Light), but in practical terms. The language
preserved in his writings is still an artifact of his unique
perception. In terms of scientific information they are very flawed.
Most modern electro dynamic theory understands that electrons do not
move but bump each other in long trains. But there is `something'
that does flow and this has been described many times with many
different words. The Od Force of Reichenbach is the best-documented
example of a subtle force in relation with magnets and crystals. "The
North and South Pole magnets they are cosmic force, they hold
together this earth and everything on it" & "They are in constant
motion, they are running one kind of magnets against the other kind,
and if guided in the right channels they possess perpetual power."
Leedskalnin here is using `Magick' to levitate stones. Magick is the
proper application of forces and has nothing to do with superstition.
Children's stories often confuse the issue. There is no `magic' but
there is the Hermit who pierces the veil and can perceive the world
in a unique way and performs wonders with his Magick. It does seem to
so does Astral Light and the Ether and other typical magickal
mediums. This is a terrible time to ask a question but what is the
current accepted viewpoint on Astral Light?

The real magnet is the substance that is circulating in the metal.
Each particle in the substance is an individual magnet by itself, and
both North and South Pole individual magnets. They are so small that
they can pass through anything.. In fact they can pass through metal
easier than through the air. They are in constant motion, they are
running one kind of magnets against the other kind, and if guided in
the right channels they possess perpetual power. The North and South
Pole magnets they are cosmic force, they hold together this earth and
everything on it. Each North and South Pole magnet is equal in
strength, but the strength of each individual magnet doesn't amount
to anything. To be of practical use they will have to be in great
North and South Pole magnets are not only holding together the earth
and moon, but they are turning the earth around on its axis. Those
magnets which are coming down from the sun they are hitting their own
kind of magnets which are circulating around the earth and they hit
more on the East side than on the West side, and that is what makes
the earth turn around. North and South Pole magnets make the
lightning, in earth's North hemisphere the South Pole magnets are
going up and the North pole magnets are coming down in the same flash.
Both these paragraphs read like visions from a Holy Book;
a "magnetic current" Tree of Life. The rest of the text of Magnetic
Current is full of experiments and things to do to observe this
electromagnetism in action. There is no mention of applying these
ideas to lifting stones through out the text.
The point being that any successful act is a Magickal act, and in
many cases the forces and ideas used are known and have been
perfected by the Western Mystery School. Leedskalin was most likely
not a hermetic occultist but his writings are so similar as to be
very telling about the physical nature of Magick. There is one Earth
and it has secrets. Sometimes these secrets are hinted at in strange
and wondrous monuments like the Coral Castle. Othertimes they are
hinted at in obscure ancient qabalistic tomes with descriptions of
energy flow in the Adam Qadmon. As Above, So Below...
