The African Origins Of Baphomet (The Goat Of Mendes) And How It Became An “Evil” Symbol

It is well known Eliphas Levi created the popular image we now know as “Baphomet”, but did you know that symbol was inspired by “The Goat Of Mendes” from Egypt? Levi was already inspired by Occult Sciences revealed by melanated minds in the Priesthoods of Egypt. Do you think it was an accident that he chose a goat for his “magical” symbol? Although technically the “Goat of Mendes” was really a Ram (and it was NOT evil), you can see where the source inspiration for Baphomet comes from. Not only that, but the symbol of Baphomet in its truest esoteric essence symbolizes the completed ‘hue-man’ – which is the original melanated man and woman with knowledge of self. Although radical caucazoid satanist and religious fanatics alike have hijacked the symbol and the idea of Baphomet and turned it into “The Devil”, the thorough student of the sciences of life will not be distracted nor dismayed by that nonsense. The true curious melanated mind understands the science of polarity, therefore being neutral to the subjective pendulum swing of good and evil. With that understanding, you can lift the veil and realize the coded symbolism within the image without becoming overwhelmed by fear of the unknown.

the history of Banebdjed (The Goat of Mendes)

Banebdjedet (Banedbdjed) was an Ancient Egyptian ram god with a cult centre at Mendes. 


According to Ancient Egypt Online: As Osiris was the ancient Egyptian lord of the dead, his “Ba” was worshipped in its own right in Ancient Egypt (especially in the city of Djedet in the Delta) and named Banebdjed (sometimes the feminine form Banebdjedet was also used as he absorbed the position of his sometime consort Hatmehyt). This name is translated as “the ba (essence or power) of the lord of the Djed” and refers to the notion that the Djed pillar (which represented stability) was thought to be the backbone of Osiris. This gives us an interesting insight into the ancient Egyptian view of death. Although they feared death, they recognised the stability and balance inherent in the cycle of decay and rebirth.

A person’s Ba was not their soul, but their essence (it can be translated as power, effectiveness, reputation or charisma), and the Ba was represented by the hieroglyph for a “ram”. As a result, Banebdjed was depicted as a ram or ram-headed man and a living “sacred ram” (thought to embody the god’s essence) was worshipped in the city of Djedet (close to Osiris’ cult center at Djedu). The rams were mummified and buried with all of the pomp and ceremony of a Pharaoh in their own necropolis.

During the late period, Banebdjed was referred to as “the goat of Mendes” by the Greeks who mispronounced the phrase Ba-neb-Djetet (‘Ram lord of Djedet’) and named the city Mendes. “The goat of Mendes” has been linked by some esoteric scholars to Baphomet (the “false god” the Templars were accused of worshipping) and transformed into a satanic stereotype by others. The only slight problem with this is that Banebdjedt was not a goat, but a ram, and he (or she) was not considered to be evil or even aggressive.


The image of Baphomet was originally created in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Levi for his book “Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie” (“Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic“). The symbol was intended to reflect a number of principles considered fundamental to occultists – inspired by the 7 Hermetic Principles, Wisdom from the Kabbalah, the secrets of alchemy, among other esoteric studies.

Eliphas Levi explains the meaning behind the Baphomet symbol: “The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life, the body covered with scales the water, the semi-circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences.”

Occult Science vs. Satanism

One thing needs to be clear, the occult sciences revealed by ancient melanated minds has absolutely nothing to do with satanism. The priests of Egypt were not worshipping satan. This idea of occult science being evil has more to do with our science being hijacked by caucazoids who rebelled against their hometown religions – becoming perfect opposites of Christianity, Catholicism, etc. More often then not those “wanna-be” caucazoid occultist reference our premier ancient knowledge, wear symbols designed by our ancestors, and pretend to be “initiated” to gain some artificial clout. The average person may be intimidated by the dark persona and magical references, but the curious Melanated Mind with knowledge of self knows that this is a charade.

Worshipping Satan is just as ridiculous as worshipping Jesus. Becoming a magician, an occultist, an alchemist is about discovering your power within. The true occultist would never encourage you to give your power to an entity outside of yourself. So keep that mind as you travel through the Universe of Occult Knowledge. We are trying to evolve our own circumstance through knowledge of self and the Universe, not get too caught up in one side of the pendulum or the other.

Blackness, Magic, Occult Science AND THE Melanated Mind

Source: “The Book Of Tru: A Collection Of Occult Writings On The Supreme Circumstance Of The Curious Melanated Mind” by Jason Williams

The science developed and revealed by ancient Melanated Minds, particularly in the Egyptian priesthoods, has been used to create every major religion and school of philosophical or metaphysical thought.

What is Occult science? The word Occult originally meant “hidden, concealed, secret”, while the word Science is organized knowledge.

For the intents and purposes of this book a general definition for “Occult Science” is as follows:

Accumulated and categorized knowledge of the unseen forces and processes of the mind, nature, and the Universe that govern reality.

Occult subjects would be considered things like the supreme circumstance of the mind, magnetism, electricity, astrology, anatomy, alchemy, universal laws, etc. Basically, the science of self and the Universe, inside and out. These phenomena are generally “hidden” to the masses of the public, at least in terms of active utilization for “magical” purposes, because most people are content in their ignorance and will never investigate the supreme sciences of the Universe and their own peculiar circumstance in the grand scheme of things. They are also concealed because incredible catastrophe is inevitable if the ‘secrets of the Universe’ were in the hands of an emotionally unstable and unqualified candidate.

Whoever possesses this supreme Knowledge of Self and the Universe has access to higher realms of consciousness which allows the adept to function as a True and Living God.

Unfortunately, many of the ancient text which contain this knowledge have either been destroyed, or stolen by the Caucazoid whom masquerades as the founder of supreme knowledge. Many still erroneously credit the Caucasian Greeks for the development of the “higher sciences”. George G.M James said it best“The Greeks were not the authors of Greek Philosophy, but the people of North Africa, commonly called the Egyptians were.” Greek philosophers did not discover anything, they stole it from the Egyptians.

Something else to consider, everywhere supreme wonders are found on planet earth in the form of an ancient understanding of complex science expressed in discovered art, literature, or architecture you also find the likeness of Black (melanated) people. From the magnificent Olmec Heads in Mexico, to the giant depiction of Buddhas with negro features engraved in the mountains of Cambodia, and the endless depictions of Black people in Egyptian art and sculptures. If the Greeks were truly “doing it big” like they say there would be no need for archeologists to spend most of their precious time looking for answers to the mysteries of the Universe in the ancient civilizations of “primitive” melanated people around the world, the Greeks should have all the answers right? Why aren’t the Greeks etched in stone around the world in massive monuments to be remembered and revered forever since their “intellectual contributions” were so profound? Apparently, what they dig up in Greece is insufficient in satisfying intellectual curiosities, the “good stuff” is always found where melanated people are.

If you read the classic Occult books written by the Caucazoid ( Transcendental Magic by Eliphas
Levi, The Hermetic Science of Transformation by Giuliano Kremmerz, etc.) you will see them repeatedly pay homage to Hermes Trismegistus and the “supreme universal wisdom he endowed to the world”, but scarcely mention that Hermes is none other than a Greek version of the Egyptian diety Tehuti (Thoth) – which actually was a supreme priesthood of Melanated Minds rather than one single man. Some books such as The Light of Egypt by Thomas H. Burgoyne say it plainly that all esoteric, metaphysical, and occult science was developed and revealed by ancient Melanated Minds.

Despite the desperate attempts of those whom wish to conceal or destroy ancient knowledge, enough information has “slipped through the cracks” to provide a Curious Melanated Mind with a foundation of occult science that will eventually germinate into a holistic understanding, rather than a fragmented perspective. An understanding of the 7 Laws of Tehuti (which most know as the Hermetic Principles, the Greek rendition of Kemetic science developed by the Priesthood of Tehuti), The Mind, Melanin, Magnetism, and Energy is enough to help any sincere student fill in the blanks.

Many of the Occult books available to us at this time have fragmented truths, and even worse, the limited non-melanated perspective of the Caucazoid. Much of the supreme wisdom that was known to the adepts and taught to the initiates of the ancient Egyptian Mystery Systems has been lost, destroyed, or stolen by invading colonizers. Unfortunately, the true researcher must sift through piles of the available Occult books, which are now often written by non- melanated peoples, analyze those findings with our pre-existing Knowledge of Self and the Universe, and extrapolate the gold from their rendition of our ancestor’s universal sciences. They have had much more access to the stolen occult knowledge than melanated peoples in this time period due mostly to archeological robberies of ancient books and artifacts, yet they are unable to completely utilize the knowledge they discover and write about because of their biological circumstance. It is practically impossible to interact with nature and energies on a supreme level without sufficient levels of Melanin. The ability to produce “magical” phenomena is but a fairy tale for the non-melanated mutant who dares strut with arrogance while toting the supreme knowledge of our ancestors. Meanwhile, the ability to produce “magical” phenomena is a natural occurrence of the Melanated Mind.

Pay attention. Why do you think most of the occult books written non-melanated peoples aggressively suggest that all would-be-magicians avoid ‘turning to the dark side’? They say “Black Magic” is evil and will corrupt your soul. You must understand that the core issue for them is not what is moral and what is not – although many non-melanated authors who write about occult science will often associate what is immoral, evil and terrible with blackness. Once again, the issue here is the non-melanated “magician” does not have the biological circumstance to consciously interact with the dark matter of the cosmos in a productive way. Therefore, blackness to non- melanated peoples becomes an uncontrollable, unknowable, inaccessible, never-ending wave of doom that is always coming to consume. As opposed to the circumstance of melanated beings, whom are not only empowered by the energy from the sun (the light), but also by the infinite blackness. The Melanated Mind maneuvers through the blackness (dark matter) of the infinitely expanding Universe like a fish in the ocean.

This is why it is important to reclaim the supreme occult sciences which were developed and revealed by our ancestors. This is another reason for this book, to inspire melanated people to take ownership of the sciences our ancestors have left behind. Our science & spirituality is our technology if we develop ourselves to fully express our supreme circumstance. With Knowledge of Self and the Universe the advanced Melanated Mind can function as a True and Living God, maintaining a capacity to manipulate atoms and energies through mental conception or spiritual alchemy to produce a desired result in the physical reality.

The quantum reality of Melanin – the black, transmutable, life-bringing, multi-dimensional, super conductive substance of the Universe – can only be understood truly through occult science, for it is the key to acquiring a supreme circumstance. Blackness, from a metaphysical perspective is power indeed. Dr. Richard King opens up the book, African Origin of Biological Psychiatry, with summarizing the phenomena of blackness (the black dot). This study of “blackness” and “Melanin” was a priority study of our ancient ancestors:

Black Dot is and ancient symbol for blackness, it is the black seed of all humanity, archetype of humanity, the hidden doorway to the collective unconsciousness-darkness, the shadow, primeval ocean, chaos, the womb, doorway of life. This ancient symbol for blackness was the subject of intense scientific investigation over a period of 300 thousand years by profound ancient scientist who were themselves black in consciousness. A long line of highly intelligent scientists studied their own essence, and discovered a hidden doorway to their souls and spirits; a doorway to advanced laws and rhythms that span the Universe. They discovered universal laws rooted in the black seed, feeding every dimension of time and space. Theses original titans found that all life came from a black seed, all life was rooted in blackness, and all things possessed a memory of their collective ancestors. Blackness, the universal solvent of all, was seen as the one reality from which life’s loom spun. All colors, all vibratory energies were but a shade a black. Black was the color of the night sky, primeval ocean, outer space, birthplace and womb of the planets, stars and galaxies of the Universe; black holes were found at the center of our own galaxy and countless other galaxies. Black was the color of carbon, the key atom found in all living matter. Carbon atoms linked together to form black Melanin, the first chemical that could capture light and reproduce itself. The chemical key to life and the brain itself was found to be centered around black Neuromelanin. Inner vision, intuition, creative genius and spiritual illumination were found to be dependent on pineal blood; born chemical messengers that controlled skin color and opened the hidden door to the darkness of the collective unconscious mind, allowing the ancient priest-scientist to visualize knowledge from the mind’s timeless collective unconscious memory banks.

If Black people are the “Original” humans, the archetype of humanity, then it makes perfect sense how you will see Melanated Minds at the origin of everything: “agriculture, animal breeding, architecture, art, astronomy, business and trade, cash and currency, ceramics, clothing, dance, economics, healthcare, housing, jewelry, mail, mathematics, medicine, metalworking, mining, music, pottery, science, shoes, spoken language, sports, technology, and written language.”

It is our nature to be a supreme creator, that is why we are the foundation of all that is genius and creative. Melanated peoples are biologically equipped to produce “magical” phenomena – the ability to consciously manipulate atoms and energies of the Universe at will by way of mental force, conceptions and/or spiritual alchemy – and with the active use of the occult science (knowledge of the seen and unseen forces and processes that influence the Universe and everything in it) passed down from our ancestors melanated peoples have the potential to evolve into something even greater.
