Today on everyone’s favorite conspiracy podcast:
Join host, Greg Carlwood, of The Higherside Chats as he talks the Sola-Busca Tarocchi, elite bloodlines, magic, and deals with the Demiurge with guest, Peter Mark Adams.
For centuries, stories and rumors involving the elite’s use of ritual magic have been swirling. From a fascination with occult arts and securing power through magic, to preserving bloodlines with selective breeding and reptilian origins, each new wave of hearsay can make it feel like we are drowning in the conspirasea.
And, with only small bread crumbs and strange symbolism left to analyze, we are understandably left with the nagging notion that things are not exactly as they seem.
Fortunately one of those breadcrumbs has broken free of it’s closely guarded exclusive chain of custody to find itself on display in Milan. This aristocratic, Renaissance heirloom, dubbed the Sola Busca Tarocchi, contains aspects of some of conspiracy’s darkest claims and acts as an elite grimoire illuminating the Cult of Saturn
But, today’s guest, Peter Mark Adams, an esoteric scholar of the Sola Busca Tarocchi
and occult symbolism decoder, joins The Higherside to shed some light on this deeply encoded tarot deck of unknown origins that was carefully crafted and engraved onto metal plates during the late 15th century and depicts some of the most heinous rumored rituals of the elite.
2:30 Diving in head first, Greg and Peter begin the monumental task of unpacking this ancient occult relic. An elaborately illustrated antiquity that shares the basic structure of a tarot deck, the Tarocchi is heavily coded and shrouded in symbolism. Adams details the imagery of the deck and the historical significance of it’s quality, contents and lack of provenance.
10:42 Greg and Peter provide some historical context surrounding the belief and practice of magic during the Renaissance in Italy when the Tarocchi was assembled. They also discuss the influences and global perspectives found in the deck, including it’s cosmology, metaphysics and ritual use.
22:00 Greg and Peter examine aspects of Gnosticism within the deck. They also discuss the pervasiveness of Saturn throughout the deck and how the creator displayed their wide array of knowledge about theology, mythology, and cosmology.
33:30 Greg and Peter discuss the importance of the d’Este family, their global influence and world view, as well as their influence in this deck. Adams gives his take on curious gaps in the deck’s chain of custody.
44:45 Continuing to follow up with the lineage of the cards, Greg and Peter discuss their current location on display in Milan and the path to get there. They also examine the continuity of elite power and their long held occult beliefs as well as Plato’s philosophical impact.
55:00 Peter continues discussing the impact of different theologies, and offers insight from his experiences as an energy healer.
