Origins of Black Mentalism
Richard was asked to give a history of the development of Black Mentalism. He said that the first Egos who began to adopt certain negative attitudes tending toward Black Mentalism were those in Lemuria who had become priests of the churches. The government of the Empire had established beautiful churches with showy religious services in hopes of attracting the non-Citizen laborers to the spiritual advantages of the philosophy of the Citizenry and to encourage them to study Universal Law. The plan failed, however; for the laborers never aspired to study the higher precepts, and the priests gradually grew to dote on the personal adulation and worship of their congregations. Thus developed in the priests one of the principle attitudes characteristic of Black Mentalism: the desire to control others.
the priests were eventually driven underground by the government, their
influence on the laborers continued to grow. Finally, the more impractical
laborers, known as Katholis, were induced to move with their priests to
previously unsettled continents—principally to
about 8,000 to 9,000 years ago, Black Mentalism began to develop in North
Africa, primarily in the area known today as
Some Egos started on the road to a form of Black Mentalism by trying to help people. An advanced Ego who took an assignment to aid a certain tribe or group of people might have been unable to refrain from paternistically manipulating the people and their environment to the point where they became like children who had all their problems solved for them. This is in violation of Natural Law, however, for no one has the right to manipulate or interfere in the environment of others to the extent that they are not challenged to solve growth-inducing problems. The Brother who does so gains much negative karma and loses his association with the Brotherhoods even though he retains his mental powers. Being an outcast, he must make karmic restitution to rejoin the Brotherhood. But some find this too painful and instead continue their destructive activities without developing an attitude of hatred. Their hope of progressing to Angelic existence, however, is cancelled by their negative karma.
Did Black Mentalism Originate on This Planet with Humans?
Q: Is it correct that evil or Black Mentalism originated on this planet with humans?
RK: Yes. It probably had a lot to do with revenge. Most of it
seemed to have gotten started toward the end of the Atlantean civilization.
It arose in
In Atlantis, it occurred
when there was a plea by people in the

were, as a result, exiled to another deserted island to the north of
Atlantis. And there, amazingly, they were able to attract more and more
Atlanteans over the next couple of generations to join them on their island
and become one of their members. They were usually disgruntled youths who
would get in there. Of course, those Mayans, on that island, which was called
They also got into human sacrifice, which was essentially the beginning of human sacrifice anywhere on the globe. The Thuleans were the ones who did that. That idea began to spread to other places where people who were interested in being all-powerful priests could learn some of these techniques and also use the terror techniques of making a person a human sacrifice if they too difficult to deal with otherwise.
When Atlantis sank so did
Q: Black Mentalism itself started around the time of the end of Atlantis?
RK: Right. It seemed to emerge almost simultaneously, but within a couple of—maybe a person would incarnate and learn some of these things and then incarnate again into another land using some of those techniques that were sort of second nature to him even though they were not conscious of it. He came into that next incarnation and they soon seemed to bloom. They have always had a world-wide communication between one another using mental telepathy much as the Saints have used telepathy in order to maintain Their communion. (02-1983)
