Rebellious means with a cause: Mind melding for the man of sin
Although it makes this entry a bit longer and I do apologize, before moving beyond the question of curious numbers and contagious memes employed by occultists, one of the more fascinating correlation’s between the number 11, the Pillars of Hercules, Bacon’s New Atlantis, and what happened in New York on 9/11 is the arcane symbolism based on the 11th labor of Hercules, also important to Kaballah and Masonic rituals.
In mythology, Hercules was driven mad by Hera and killed his own children. To atone for his sins, he was required by Eurystheus to carry out ten labors, which he did. But Eurystheus, an enemy who had ascended the throne in Hercules place, would not accept labor #2 (killing the 9-headed Lernaean Hydra) nor labor #5 (cleansing the Augean stables) because Hercules had allowed his nephew Lolaus to help him burn the heads of the chthonic Hydra plus he had accepted payment for the Augean stables work. Eurystheus therefore assigned two new labors: #11—Steal the Golden Apples of the Hesperides that had been hidden by the Titan Atlas, and #12—Capture Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog of Hades.
In Greek mythology, the garden of the Hesperides (the nymphs who tended Hera’s garden) was located in Libya near the Atlas Mountains. Depending on the version of the story, either a single tree or grove of trees yielded golden apples there, which, when eaten, produced immortality. Because Hera was suspicious that the nymphs would eat the apples, she placed a hundred-headed dragon there named Ladon to guard it. To get past the dragon, Hercules tricked Atlas, the first king of Atlantis (whose name means ‘Pillar’ and who was burdened with holding the heavens and earth upon his shoulders) into retrieving some of the apples for him, as the beast would not attack him. The Greek scholar Apollodorus, who lived more than one-hundred years before Christ, tells what happened next:
But when Atlas had received three apples from the Hesperides, he came to Hercules, and not wishing to support the sphere he said that he would himself carry the apples to Eurystheus, and bade Hercules hold up the sky in his stead. Hercules promised to do so, but succeeded by craft in putting it on Atlas instead. For at the advice of Prometheus he begged Atlas to hold up the sky till he should put a pad on his head. When Atlas heard that, he laid the apples down on the ground and took the sphere from Hercules. And so Hercules picked up the apples and departed. But some say that he did not get them from Atlas, but that he plucked the apples himself after killing the guardian snake. 
Numerous elements from the 11th labor of Hercules stand out as important to occultists when appreciating the message of 9/11. First is the obvious number 11, which marked the attack on the Twin Towers in New York as a work of destructive forces. Second, the Arch Villain in this case was played by Osama Bin Laden, whose last name is remarkable in that ‘Bin Laden’ means “son of Laden” or, alternatively, “Ladon,” the mystical hundred-headed dragon that Hercules had to avoid or destroy. Third, in Masonic mysticism, Jesus Christ is Hercules. In Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Albert Pike writes, “‘God,” says Maximus Tyrius, “did not spare His own Son [Hercules], or exempt Him from the calamities incidental to humanity. The Theban progeny of Jove had his share of pain and trial.”’  Fourth, Atlas was the first king of Atlantis, important to both the antediluvian and Baconian Atlantis. Fifth, the Golden Apples of the Hesperides reminds of the nickname of New York City where the Twin Towers were attacked, commonly called “The Big Apple.” Sixth, immediately after retrieving the Golden Apples, Hercules freed Prometheus from the Caucasus Mountains where Zeus had him chained. Recall the point made earlier in this study that Prometheus was the Greek Titan that stole fire from the gods and gave it to man. When he is incarnated in the human mind as the mystical longing for illumination (a “fire in the mind”), the latter produces what James Billington called “the Promethean faith,” a Gnostic doctrine whose origin was solidified in occult Freemasonry. And seventh, the 11th labor of Hercules centers where the three Pillars of Atlas stood, emphasizing again the role of the Three Pillars of Freemasonry as integral to the events of 9/11 and the metaphor of Hercules.
If the 11th labor of Hercules was intended as symbolic during 9/11, the ancient story was corrected in the New York version to reveal an interesting interpretation of the allegory. In the retelling, revengeful power (number 11) was released by the Dragon (Bin Laden, son of Ladon, the Devil of Rev. 12 and 13) where the Golden Apple Garden (NYC, the Big Apple, where the promise of Gold dominated) existed, and overpowered Jesus Christ (Hercules). The result created a fire in the minds of men (the release of Prometheus), which moved through and then beyond the Twin Towers/Pillars of New York (the pillars of Atlas-Freemasonry-Enoch-Solomon-Atlantis), quickly resulting in universal appeal for a New World Order (culmination of the New Atlantis).
In addition to the 11th labor of Hercules, at least two other oddities stand out as possible evidence of a bizarre and occult synchronicity at work during the events of 9/11. On this date the Pentagon—located on the 77th meridian west and whose foundation stone was laid during a Masonic ceremony on 9/11, 1941—was also attacked. The number 77 happens to be the fire department’s 10-Code (10-77) for a high-rise multiple dwelling fire. More important, the number 77, like the number 11, is a powerful Master Number, which occultists believe represents the ascension of a New Age Christ “consciousness.” The Islamic radicals that attacked the United States on 9/11 would have known that the number 77 is prominent in the religion of Islam, partly due to a statement by their prophet Muhammad, which is interpreted as faith having “77 branches.” In the Book of Luke 3:23-38, there were 77 generations from Adam to Jesus Christ. There were 77 generations from Enoch to Christ according to one account. In some versions of the Bible such as the International Standard Version, 77 is the number of times to forgive offenses (most versions read “seventy times seven”). Conversely, Saint Augustine thought the number 77 represented the ultimate measure of sin because it was a product of the “sin” number (11) times the number of divinity or “perfection” (7), thus 11 X 7 = 77. Perhaps this is also why Satanists have 77 names for the Devil.
Over and above these generalizations, an enlightening observation is discovered when the number 77 is understood as an “illuminated signal” for the “Revenge of Lamech.” This is drawn from Genesis 4:23-24, which says, “And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah. ‘Hear my voice: ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold” (77). Lamech was a descendant of Cain, the first murderer in the Bible, and the father of Tubal-Cain, a master craftsman. In Masonic tradition, the lineage of Lamech is very important because he is considered the forefather of Hiram Abiff, the First Grand Master of the order of Masons and Chief Architect of the Temple of Solomon. The name of Lamech’s son, “Tubal-Cain” is used as the title for a secret handgrip in Masonic ritual, which bestows passage of the Third Degree Master Mason. This is more than superficially important, as handgrips in Freemasonry form a Luciferian antithesis to the Biblical concept of virtuous power-transference or “blessings” through greetings or “laying on of hands.” The Mason is actually instructed to “follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain” in order to master the “seething energies of Lucifer [that] are in his hands.”
Celebrated 33° Freemason, Manly P. Hall explains:
The day has come when Fellow Craftsman must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion, which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.” 
The relationship between Lucifer and possessing “the mighty strength of the war god” is explained by various Masonic sources as a reference to the Roman god Vulcan, the son of Jupiter and Juno, a sun deity associated with lightning and volcanic fire to which human sacrifices were made. His connection with “the seething energies of Lucifer” thus makes sense given that the myth of Vulcan closely resembles the fall of Lucifer and his subsequent position on earth. Various works have provided evidence that Vulcan is actually identical with or related to the biblical Satan. “According to Diel, he bears a family relationship to the Christian devil,” writes J.C. Cirlot in the Dictionary of Symbols.

If the number 77 on September 11, 2001 pointed to “revenge” upon the United States by the Royal Bloodline descendents of Lamech, they were following the footsteps of Tubal-Cain indeed, releasing “the seething energies of Lucifer” and the “strength” of Vulcan (Satan) to whom “human sacrifices” must be made.
