Heaven’s Gate Cult – Conspiracy by the Numbers

I remember reading about the Heaven’s Gate cybercult suicides in 1997, back when I was in grade 7. My family had one of the earliest prototypes of the Internet, America Online, and some time in between waiting fifteen minutes for a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model to load onscreen, I looked up the Heaven’s Gate website. I recall the retro Geocities layout and the bitmap stars as wallpaper. I remember wondering who in their right mind would fall for something like this, and what it would be like if it were true. We the living don’t know, but the 39 cult members who mass suicided over three days might have actually left their body vehicles behind and hitched a ride on that alien spaceship drafting behind Comet Hale-Bopp. Who are we to judge? Although, it may also have been another psychological operation, mind control waged on both the cult members and the public.

The suicides happened 13 days after the Phoenix Lights event, where thousands of people witnessed a massive V-shaped UFO on 3/13/1997 – a date with 33 numerology, the main Masonic call-sign. 313 has some interesting ufology references: crop circle; fear of aliens; and (alluding to the cult) forbidden gate. The sighting is said to have lasted for 106 minutes, the number of prophecy and divine plan. The numbers suggest conspiracy, as if the alien craft was perhaps black-ops military tech rather than genuinely extra-terrestrial. Although, perhaps it is the ETs who are behind the numerological conspiracy…  (Notice the artist’s depiction looking like the Masonic compass or square.)


Nine days after the Phoenix Lights was the Spring “Equinox” (105 = Masonry / Zionism) on the Synagogue of Satan’s numerological date: 3/22 – the number connected to the Skull & Bones Secret Society at Yale. A few days later, 39 people allegedly committed suicide in a mass ritual connected to the astronomical event of the century, the passing of Comet Hale-Bopp, which also has a gematria of 39. The cult leader, Marshall Applewhite, was castrated in Mexico: Castration = 39; Mexico = 33. The inverse of 39 is 93, which is the number of Aleister Crowley’s Order of Thelema, and one of The Beast’s main tenets was the Law of Reversals.   

Marshall Applewhite has an English Gematria of 82, same as “Armageddon,” which he was predicting as just around the corner – what he called the “Recycling” =96 (Freemason / Satanism / MK-ULTRA). In Jewish Gematria, Recyling equals “Purification,” “Exorcism,” and “Satanic Cult.” Heaven’s Gate has a Simple Gematria of 44 (the Kill Number – 11+9+12+12=44); a Jewish Gematria of 962 (same as Narcissistic Cult Leader); and an English Gematria of 107 (Hidden Meaning / Eternal Life / Atonement / Superman / The Messiah). Indeed Applewhite believed he was the ubermensch, Christ returned, and through atoning for materialistic sins he would reveal the hidden meaning of life to his flock and lead them onwards to eternal life among the aliens. Get this: his birthplace, “Spur” Texas equals 74 (Jesus / Messiah / Cross / Gospel / Lucifer / Occult / Masonic / Gematria [and] Heaven’s) – and 74 is also the very gematria as his deathplace, San Diego! What are the odds?


Applewhite (115 = Freemasons /  Killing / Religious) believed that he was directly related to Jesus, and he referred to himself as an “Evolutionary Kingdom Level Above Human.” Curiously, this phrase has a Gematria of 156 – which is one of the GOD numbers. Another way he referenced his title was in the acronym, dropping the kingdom: Evolutionary Level Above Human = ELAH, which is one of the names of God and inverted spells HALE (half of the comet’s name). Yet the Gematria reveals how much stranger it becomes as ELAH = 26 = GOD. Notice there are 26 letters in the alphabet, further indication that the Greeks and Hebrews deliberately designed the English language to be deeply encoded with the hidden messages of Gematria. Two of his nicknames were Do (D=4/0=15) =46 [Hero / Magical] and Bo (B=2/0=15) =26. Applewhite died on March 26th, 1997 — a date with 55 numerology, the god number, which also equals Satan / Heaven / Sky / New Age. Even stranger is that Applewhite’s partner in crime, Bonnie Nettles, also =55.
Adding so much more depth to the notion of what is in a name [along with yet another 26 tribute] Hale-Bopp also equals 206 (Sacrifice / Going Home / San Diego) and 76 (Thelemic / Eternal / Famous). Indeed the cult members sacrificed themselves in a San Diego mansion in order to Go Home. They killed themselves in Rancho Santa Fe, a name with the same gematria as Hell (53), The Gates of Hell (425), and Hypnosis / Dark Deception (125). Also, the latitude of the San Diego mansion was 33.30°N.


The symbolic icons of the suicides are further evidence of conspiracy. They poisoned themselves with Phenobarbital (123 = Conspiracy / Eighty-Eight) mixed in applesauce (another apple reference, along with Applewhite, alluding to the temptation of Satan in the Garden of Eden and the esoteric occulted knowledge); they draped their bodies in cloth the colour Purple (88 = Poison / Program); and they all wore Nike Decades (44 = Kill; 80 = Baphomet / Beelzebub / The Beast), as if they were sponsored by the corporation with the swoosh logo representing the rings of Saturn (which represents the ancient origins of modern-day Satanism).  

“I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.” – Mark Twain =38 (Kabbalah) =110 (Apollyon / Prophetic)

Twain also wrote:”The fare to get to heaven on the tail of a comet was $5.75.” The 38 cult members plus Applewhite all killed themselves with a five dollar bill and three quarters in their pockets. What is the numerological significance of this number? 575 = False Prophets / Human Sacrifices. 5×75=375 = Star Seed / Prophetic / Cult Image / Materialism / Lepus [the constellation in the Heaven’s Gate logo, along with the G in the key-hole, like the Freemasonry G, which is numerically represented by 33]). 575/25=23… is this a veiled reference by Twain to the 23 Enigma?

But get this, truth-seeker: the numerology of Mark Twain’s birthday (11-30-35) =76 — and Halley’s Comet is visible from Earth every 76 years. Not only was he born with the comet in the sky and died at age 76, one day after the comet’s closest approach to Earth on its next visit, but the gematria synchs up, too. For another connection with Halley’s Comet, recall that “Hale-Bopp” also equals 76. If you think all this is a miracle, know that Twain died in Redding, Conneticut – a town with a gematria (61) equivalent to Miracle. 

So it would again appear that either Applewhite understood Gematria or his CIA handlers were feeding him scripts to follow. There are multiple levels of mind control at work here in this psyop. Beyond the cult brainwashing there’s the genuine MK-ULTRA programming of which Applewhite himself claimed to be a victim. There is the planted hoax story on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell in Dec ’96, an alleged ‘former NASA scientist Lee Shargel (47 = Mafia / Judge / Obey / Authority) (92 = Pentagon / Planet X) claiming to have photos of a spaceship flying behind the approaching comet. Disinformation designed, perhaps as part of the Heavens Gate psyop plot.

Further Curiosities:

  • Applewhite believed that “Luciferian” space creatures were conspiring with the government. (Something this author might agree with.) 
  • Coincidentally, three members of the Heaven’s Gate “away team” worked for Advanced Development Group, Inc. (ADG), a company that developed computer-based instruction for the U.S. Army. ADG later became ManTech Advanced Development Group; these organizations have connections to the First Earth Battalion, a psy-op group formed within the U.S. military to allegedly handle extraterrestrial affairs such as abductions or contact through telepathy or remote viewing, and to hold simulated extraterrestrial “drills” using holographic technology. First Earth Battalion eventually became the Jedi Project. All of these secretive psy-op groups are, or were, well skilled in spreading information and disinformation about the occult, the Heaven’s Gate cult, the attacks of 9/11, remote viewing and UFO’s.
  • Lee Johnson was a member of a Utah rock group called Dharma Combat. He was a Heaven’s Gate away team member and committed suicide with the cult members. After his death the surviving members of the band released an EP that featured a song called MESLIM written by Johnson. The song featured some odd lyrics about a possible attempt by the U.S. government to stage an alien threat. What did he know, and why did he and the 38 followers of Heaven’s Gate believe that there was an alien spaceship following the Hale Bopp comet? Was all of this a test run for a mass exercise?
  • Jacques Vallée wrote a book called “Messengers of Deception” where he revealed that groups like Heaven’s Gate and the Raelians and events like the “alien autopsy” seemed to be linked to military intelligence.
  • Branches of the military are engaging in psychological warfare involving false flag exercises. These allegedly include simulated extraterrestrial attacks. The frightening part is that the military psy-ops groups are conducting these alien-based psychological experiments to test the collective acceptance of a real alien landing. They are allegedly faking occasional UFO reports and YouTube videos to gauge public reaction. They are also allegedly taking real events shown on YouTube and creating a sense of confusion by creating very sophisticated fakes that appear to be eyewitness documentation. 
  • These fakes are used to discredit any and all anomalous events as hoaxes. The mainstream media then takes the story and jokingly ridicules those who believe that the event was out of the ordinary. This has been lost on many armchair skeptics who believe that they know CGI when they see it. Of course there is CGI; your taxes paid for the intelligence blackouts and disinformation. The psy-op begins and soon everything is a hoax and evidence is overlooked in the race to debunk and not to decipher.
  • Apparently, an associate of the FBI informant Abdusattar Sheikh who housed some of the 9/11 hijackers in San Diego named Sam Koutchesfahani rented out the mansion the Heaven’s Gate UFO cult killed themselves in in 1997. This man had been involved in a scam to get terrorists into America and posing them as college students

As always, much more to a story than first meets the eye. Particularly upon the necessary Gematria analysis.
