Many secret orders have an Outer Head - a non-corporeal entity who is recognized as that order’s true Grand Master, for whom the corporeal Grand Master is but a representative. It is similar to the concept of the patron deity. For us, we understand the Ordo Lapsit Exillis to be under the guidance of the spirit of Cain, the god-king of the ancient world immortalized in legends as mankind’s Forgotten Father.

Cain is said to have created civilizations across the globe, and to have shared with certain chosen men a secret, forbidden wisdom: the Hermetic doctrine of the occult, symbolized by the Lapsit Exillis, or the Holy Grail. These actions brought him into conflict with other members of the divine hierarchy, an occasion immortalized in the Biblical story of the War in Heaven, and in other myths from various cultures that tell the same story. He is also said to have interbred with mortal females, creating mankind’s first royal family, the Grail bloodline , which carried with it the seed of the divine. Their descendants became the lords of the earth, resulting in many, if not in fact most of the world’s royal dynasties throughout history. The Grail gene can even be found in numerous other important personages from both the past and the present, including every single president of the United States.

The archetypal figure of Cain can be found in an astonishing variety of myths and legends from divers places and periods. Notable ones include Kronos/Saturn, Hermes/Mercury, Zeus, Vulcan, Oceanus, Osiris, Oannes, Dagon, Moloch, Baal, Odin, Wotan, and even South American gods such as Votan, Viracocha, and Quetzlcoatl. And although Cain is himself a Biblical figure, major elements of his story are repeated in the Biblical (and Apocryphal) tales of Enoch, Tubal-Cain, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Nimrod, Melchizedek, King Hiram of Tyre, the Archangel Michael, and even Christ himself. However, the Cain archetype is most famously represented in the villains of the Bible, such as Satan, Lucifer, Leviathan, and the Anti-Christ. Cain is even portrayed in the church at Rennes-le-Chateau, as the statue of the demon Asmodeus - Rex Mundi, the Lord of the Earth - which stands in the church entryway. Cain is not always depicted as exclusively male, for in occult symbolism he is sometimes conjoined in Hermaphroditic fashion with his female consort, represented by the Venusian goddess archetype. In this manner Cain was worshipped by the Knights Templar in the form of their androgynous idol, Baphomet.

The secret doctrine passed down from Cain to his descendants has been preserved in the various secret occult societies that the Grail families have formed throughout the ages, albeit in sometimes fragmented and incoherent form. It is the goal of Lapsit Exillis to rediscover the secret doctrine of the Grail - the forbidden knowledge first taught by Cain - and restore it to its original glory, in a pure and unblemished state.

In the Bible, Cain was exiled to the Land of Nod , and what became of him after is not specified, except that he is known to have founded great kingdoms. Of his death and burial, nothing is said. But the legends of other cultures pick up where the Bible leaves off. In numerous myths, the body of the Forgotten Father is said to be entombed within a subterranean chamber, located in the cave of a sacred mountain in the center of the Earth. There he is, not dead, but eternally sleeping, and his dreams still have the power to influence the actions of mortal men upon the Earth’s surface. Once day, it is said, upon the arrival of the new Golden Age, he will return to once again shepherd his flock. Until then, his servants work in secret to prepare the way.

We need not speculate about the literal truth of notions such as these in order to derive use from them. To us, regardless of the scientific principles which may or may not be involved, the divine influence of the spirit of Cain upon the work of the OLE can most definitely be felt. Because of this, we are obliged to acknowledge the insight and guidance that we have received from him, and thus are compelled to pledge our steadfast, unswerving obedience to him and his principles. It is a pledge we feel quite confident in making, and a servitude that brings us nothing but joy. To us, Cain will always be the rightful Roi du Monde.

If the Rulers have the Divine Right to govern, the true initiate will cheerfully obey. - Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma.
