An Alleged Immortal
The story of St. Germaine got well ingrained into my memory along with my deep admiration for him -- actually so well that I can still remember much of what is known about that strange personage. Thus, it gives me pleasure to remind myself of all that by writing about it now.
The famous French philosopher Voltaire, a contemporary of the Count once said about him: "He is a man who knows everything and never dies."
Arguably one of the most enigmatic personages known that ever lived was this Count de Saint Germain, a French nobleman living around the time of the French revolution in 1789.
Or, should we start with the mystery with this very detail of when he actually lived -- since it appears that the man kept his looks of someone in his fifties, while living for some centuries.
An alchemist, among many other impressive attributes, he allegedly discovered an "elixir of immortality". And while this fancy, or even naively sounding expression may merely remind every realist about the story of Leon de Ponce and his worldwide search for an elixir of eternal life -- modern science started to make something like that more and more believable.
Namely, top gerontologists are talking about this serious -- albeit still hard to believe -- possibility that aging is actually a disease, not an imminent reality of life. And they came to such conclusions after some very extensive scientific research -- not as a sheer groundless speculation.
Did St. Germain stumble upon that secret while fooling around his alchemical experiments? Did he bring the formula with him from his lengthy stay with a mysterious Himalayan Brotherhood, along with certain rare technologies for coloring textile in some vibrant colors?
That we don't know; but historical records are clearly placing him within a period of a few centuries.
There is this anecdote telling about an aging noble lady meeting with the Count at the court of the King Louis XV, who had been the Count's devoted friend -- and she reluctantly asked him if, by any chance, his father ever lived in Venice, Italy, since there was such a strong resemblance with someone in her young age.
On that the Count replied that it had been him; reminding her how the two of them used to sing barcaroles in duet.
The lady was shocked with disbelief, exclaiming: "But that is impossible, it would make you much over a hundred years old, because that man was in his early fifties at that time".
The Count politely declined to reveal his age, half-jokingly just replying: "I am sorry . Madam, but telling my age brings me bad luck".
The history has it that he faked his funeral a couple of times over the long period of his life. He fluently spoke all major European languages, and since he never mentioned a word of his origin, some were guessing that he was a Portuguese Jew; others saying he was a son of Transylvanian king who had sent two of his sons to Italy while fearing about imminence of his violent death.
No one ever found out about the true origin of the Count of Saint Germain.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Man with Incredible Abilities
Due to his multiple impressive abilities and vast knowledge, St. Germain was nicknamed "Wonderman".
He was an artist, a violinist, a swordsman, a poet, a composer, a singer, a hypnotist and a great alchemist...I hope I didn't miss anything there. He is said to have discovered the alchemical secret of turning base metals into gold, and able to clean diamonds, of which he had a ridiculously expensive set on his shoes and on his garments.
The King got greatly impressed when the Count cleaned one of his large diamonds, and his strange knowledge of history and other fields of science caused the King to grow very fond of the Count. Allegedly, for some days at a time the two of them, along with the King's mistress Marquise Pompadour would spend alone, away from the parasitic court crowd.
As a matter of fact, the King liked the Count so much that he let him move into a part of his royal palace.
St. Germaine was fabulously rich, always paying with cash, but when the jealous court politicians tried to find out about the sources of his wealth, they couldn't find anything, as he didn't keep any of his valuables in a bank.
Another oddity about him was in his never being seen to eat publicly, not even as a guest at the King's table. But he was seen frequently as sipping on his senna tea -- which on the face value would look a pretty peculiar choice, since senna is known as a laxative.
But then, it may not even look so strange, as some records are saying how he would self-medicate a couple of times a year with some powerful laxative which would make him very sick for a few days. Well, it seems that the smart dude knew something that we don't about the paramount importance of a thoroughly purified body.
The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.

Assisting at Creation of the American Constitution
Comte de Saint Germain was a mystic with many strange abilities. Showing off at the court while entertaining the King's guests and those regulars hanging around, he would simultaneously write the same text using both hands on two pieces of paper, and to the astonishment of all, the texts would be identical.
At other times, he would tell about historical events, some of them belonging to Biblical times, in such an incredible detail that it seemed like he had been there.
As if capable to also predict future events, he was begging the Queen Marie-Antoinette to leave France because her life would soon be in a grave danger. He was mentioning an impending revolution -- but the Queen chose not to heed his warning.
As history books are telling, the revolution did happen, and she was publicly beheaded at guillotine by the revolutionaries.
The Count was eventually accused of espionage and took an exile to England, where he lived for a while under a different name.
When it became safe for his return, he went back to Paris, where he staged one of his fake funerals.
His faked funeral made the necessity for him to disappear from the public life for a while, but that didn't mean that he was done as some old man.
He appeared in few memoires, notably those of the Italian adventurers Cagliostro and Casanova. In the nineteenth century he was mentioned by the founder of the Theosophical society Madame Helene Blavatsky as a co-author of it.
There was even a photo found in which she was sitting in the middle between two standing men -- one of them being the Count de St. Germain.
Some of the records about him mention certain mixed information containing his characterization of a charlatan. That was, however, clarified, with the information about a certain captain in Paris who was a con man and also called himself Saint Germain.
Allegedly, the Count ended up in America, actually with a big mission there -- co-working on the creation of the American Constitution, while being a highly valued member of the same secret society with now famous forefathers of American political history.
He was a valuable authority in both, Freemason and Illuminati societies.

A Savant with Fully Expressed Genetical Landscape
Count de St. Germain's legacy made him idolized by many people and spiritual groups around the world, while being considered as one of the ascended spiritual masters. As a matter of fact, many are contending that the Count must still be somewhere alive.
Well, there is just enough mystery surrounding the man to have become the basis for such adoration.
All these are fragments of my remembered story about this incredible man, and forgive my laziness to take a peek on You tube to be able to tell you why he was also called the "Keeper of the Violet Flame".
But just the mention of it may give you a hint about how worshipped he is -- with some of that attributed stuff not necessarily matching the historical records.
Now, I'd like to say a few about my own, personal admiration of the enigmatic dude.
I see a rare savant in him, nicely fitting into my pet theory about human race being genetically engineered by space people in a very, very distant past -- and I am talking about a past of a couple hundred thousand years ago.
I shamelessly mention this theory, for which there are enough archaeological artifacts of an incredibly advanced technology dating much, much further back in time than the mainstream understanding is estimating it.
So, since we are only using 1.5% of our genes, in my view -- and in a view of some prominent geneticists -- that rest of genes which are called "junk genes" are actually dormant ET genes.
Namely, by the natural principle of endowment, nature would have evolved out from our body anything that it was not intending to use. That would match the familiar saying: "You don't use it -- you lose it."
Eons of Matrix manipulation which downregulated that genetic "super-library" in us, left us with what we see these days -- a mediocre level of intelligence threatening our own extinction, while driven by dominating animalistic genes expressed in greed, aggressiveness, territoriality and lust for power in the herd.
And then, there are these rare human specimens to be spotted around the globe, with superhuman abilities -- some called geniuses, others called savants. In my view, those are the ones in whom, by some fluke of nature, some of those ET genes got upregulated.
And Count de Saint Germain was one of them.
I understand that to many people the story is too fictional to be taken seriously. And yet, some rare ones with an open mind just might find it fascinating enough -- but also highly possible, and even inspirational.
It is for those few that I wrote this post.
As for my own take on it -- well, I've been into my personal exploration of my own unused genetic potential for quite a number of years, so I leave it to you to imagine how inspirational I found the life of this extraordinary man.
With certain esoteric meditations, and other science-based practices that are mainly stemming from epigenetics and neuroplasticity, I am well on my own discoveries of who I am at my human essence.
And it often borders with divine.
