An Alchemical Enigma: A Short History of the Rise and Fall of Sir Edward Kelley

Vincent Bridges, editors Terry Burns and Eliska Bridges Chez Soi Press, 2018


EDWARD “TALBOT” KELLEY STEPS from obscurity onto the stage of the Elizabethan era on the 8th of March 1582, arriving at Mortlake in answer to the fervent prayers of Dr. John Dee, Queen Elizabeth I’s mentor, court astrologer, creator of the idea of “The British Empire” and reputedly the most learned man in Europe.

Through the next few years, Edward Kelley would go through what seems, to modern eyes, an almost miraculous transformation:from the hard-to-manage crystal gazer of John Dee’s diary to the alchemist who apparently can change base metals into silver or gold, and who becomes a Knight of the Holy Roman Empire, given lands and honors by Emperor Rudolf II himself. Then almost as rapidly, Kelley falls from grace and dies trying to escape from prison at Hnevin Castle.

Was Kelley a charlatan, as some over the years have labelled him? Or could he rather have been a brilliant and misunderstood visionary whose legacy catalyzed the Rosicrucian Enlightenment in Central Europe, and which inspired some of the most admired literature of the late 16th and early 17th centuries? In this book Vincent Bridges gives us a fascinating and singular account of this enigmatic figure.

The Ophanic Revelation was first released in Italian: La Rivelazione Ofenica: Scienza e Arte della Comunicazione Angelica. MyLife Books, 2010.

Four hundred years ago, higher intelligence in the form of angels communicated a geometrical, symmetry-based, DNA-coded language pattern capable of producing a rapid expansion of consciousness and an increase in symbolic cognition. This shift in awareness–from a local primate-0based consciousness to a much larger, universal, non-local reality–is based on what we now call plasma physics. The angels gifted us with this most unusual language system as a kind of life raft/survival radio set as they knew mankind would need a shift in consciousness to survive the precessionally timed apocalyptic season that now threatens to close in upon us. This book represents the first serious attempt to examine the angelic, or Ophanic, system given to Dr. John Dee from multiple viewpoints, using history, physics, biology, mathematics as well as art and sacred geometry to explore the unexpected depths of meaning and interconnection in this unique communication.
