Richard Wagner

Richard Wagner was a German composer of classical music and freemason used in program Romanticism. He played a role in the Pluto in Taurus era, transformation of religion (era of Nietzsche declaring God is dead, Darwinism turning humans into evolved monkeys, and Freud turning them into primitive sex maniacs). He married Cosima Liszt, the daughter of mason Franz Liszt. He was a friend of mason Friedrich Nietzsche who the end of his life he called himself Dionysus and Antichrist. With anarchist Mikhail Bakunin he played a role in the May Uprising in Dresden against Prussian troops.

His character Fafnir represented the archetypal dragonslayer (Draco-Orion war). The Rhine river was a symbol of the sacred celestial pole (Spear of Destiny) with Draco on top. He made an opera of a novel of Edward Bulwer-Lytton.

In 1876 he released Rheingold, the 1st part of his Der Ring des Nibelungen Ring Cycle (Saturn worship, based on Norse mythology) and his own opera house was built in Bayreuth.

His patron was Ludwig II Wittelsbach, King of Bavaria who built his Neuschwanstein in honour of Wagner.

He was in contact with Theosophist Eduard Schuré, a follower of Max Théon of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor.

Parsifal represented the Fool and contained Holy Grail mythology (also on the emblem of the Ordo Templi Orientis). Montsalvat was based on the Montsegur castle of the gnostic Cathars.

Nietzsche attacked the slave morality of Christianity and announced the Death of God, a moral crisis in Western culture. He accused Wagner of Christian symbolism of Parsifal in Untimely Meditations. Nietzsche's sister was an antisemite like Wagner, married Bernhard Förster and lived in a German colony in Paraguay.

JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings cycle contained similarities with Wagner's Ring Cycle.

His son Siegfried signed the Manifesto of the 93 (most important number in Thelema) to support Germany in WW1 with Adolf von Bayer, Gerhart Hauptmann, Lujo Brentano, Paul Ehrlich, Ernst Haeckel, Fritz Haber, Felix Klein, Max Liebermann, Eduard Meyer, Franz Liszt, Wilhelm Ostwald, Max Planck, Alois Riehl, Wilhelm Röntgen, Wilhelm Wundt,...

Adolf Hitler and Angela Merkel were fans of Wagner.

A version of his Ring Cycle was released by Edward Lewis on Decca Records. Robert Wagner was mayor of NY.

Disney used Ludwig II's castle as inspiration for the Cinderella castle in Disneyland used for mind control.

Ride of the Valkyries was used in Apocalypse now in a scene with Robert Duvall and Martin Sheen. Valkyries in Norse mythology are seen as gods that reside in Asgard, the crown of the Yggdrasil Tree of Life.
