"The powerful Skull and Bones Order is both Masonic in its
death imagery, a datum which is known, also quintessencially
kabbalistic, an important fact currently concealed. In the
Zohar the 'Hard Skull' is a controlling symbol in which it is
said that 'inside this skull lie ninety million worlds moving
with it, relying upon it.' The Zoharic Hard Skull of
Adam Kadmon is code for the solid
rulership of the Cryptocracy wich maintains a necromantic
Death Order rooted in the symbolism of the Skull..."

Cryptocracy, Paranoia magazine, issue 41, Spring 2006)
Almost all of the occult societies that spawned
the occult revival of the 19th century were spawned by active
Freemasons. The Skull and Bones
society is no exception, as author
William H. Kennedy, author of "Lucifer's Lodge", points out
in the text below.

"Founded at Yale in 1832 the Skull and Bones Society (aka The
Order) came in the wake of President
John Quincy Adams
purging of Freemasons from government jobs who, the
President felt, had inordinate power in American political
life. As a means to continue the Freemasonic tradition in
the power structure of the United States, a Yale student
went to Germany and secured a charter from some unnamed
university Masonic-like secret society. A legal entity
called the Russell Trust was set up as the parent
organization of the Skull and Bones Society and this
corporation owns all the land on which Yale University rests
and could technically evict this Ivy League institution from
its home. This is the reason Yale University refuses to even
speak of The Order and professors and instructors are
ordered never to comment to the press about the Skull and
The Skull and Bones is headquartered in a bizarre building
in the center of Yale’s campus in New Haven called the
Tombs. The structure has an eerie quality and looks very
much like a mausoleum. It is reported that the interior part
of the building is decorated with coffins and real human
skulls including that of the Native American leader
Geronomo. Potential initiates meet twice a week for
elaborate dinners. Members are called Bonesman. Even these
high society Satanists cannot get away from Nazi practices.
Since the late 1940s members of The Order use a silver
cutlery set once owned and used by Hitler himself. It was
stolen by a Bonesman who served in Europe at the end of WW2.
The teachings of the Skull and Bones are really not too far
away from Crowley's ideas and both have their roots in
Masonic influenced secret societies."
