What is the Ordo Lapsit Exillis?
The OLE is an invisible college dedicated to the recovery of the Stone that fell from Heaven, called by our ancestors the “Grail.” We owe our allegiance and our life-blood to the Forgotten Father of our august race, the Hidden God of the Two Horns, and his consort, the Queen of Heaven. The purpose of this organization is threefold
- The promotion of an ideal, the “Arcadian Mystique,” and the organization of efforts in the service of that ideal
- The pursuit of a mystery, that of the Holy Grail, and the dissemination of information gleaned from our ongoing investigations
- The provision of much-needed exposure for fellow researchers on subjects of mutual concern

Priory of Sion and the Knights Templar: OLE’s Historic Predecessors
The Prieuré de Sion (Priory of Zion) was a chivalrous fraternity created in medieval France with the purpose of preserving the Merovingian bloodline and returning them to the throne of France. They were officially founded as the Order de Sion by Godfroi de Bouillon in 1099. This was just prior the First Crusade, which was also headed by de Bouillon. Their official headquarters was the Abbey of Notre Dame du Mont de Sion in Jerusalem. In March 1117 they had Baldwin I, King of Jerusalem (who, it is said, owed his throne to them due to their efforts on his behalf) negotiate the constitution of the Order of the Temple, a.k.a. the Knights Templar, as the military and administrative arm of the Order de Sion.
The Templar order, which had already been around more than a decade, was headed by Hughes de Payen, who was also a founding member of the Order de Sion. They are not mentioned again in history until 1152, when King Louis VII of France brought them 95 new members and gave them the priory of Saint-Samson at Orléans.
The Templars, according to tradition, were created for the purpose of safeguarding pilgrims on the road to the Holy Land, and they are most famous for their brave fighting on behalf of Christendom for the capture of Jerusalem. However, evidence indicates that this was not at all an orthodox Christian organization, but that their secret rituals and doctrine were much more mystical, hermetic, and occult-oriented, derived not from the Church, but from Christ himself.
The Knights Templar had quite a career after the Crusades. They basically took over Europe financially, dominating all of the major industries, especially that of money lending. They invented the modern checking system, and within a few years had all of Europe’s kings indebted to them. This is why, even though they were disbanded by the Pope and the Grand Master burnt at the stake for heresy, some people believe that the Templars still exist today, continuing to manipulate the affairs of Europe behind the scenes. The Swiss nation, especially, is believed to be controlled by them. The same can be said for the Priory of Sion, which continues to this day, according to the authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail.
In fact, a number of illustrious figures in history, including Leonardo da Vinci, Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, Claude Debussy, and Jean Cocteau have served as the Priory’s Grand Masters, or Nautioniers (Navigators.) The Priory has been credited by some with the creation of the European Union. The same insignia which they proposed for the flag of the United States of Europe in the 1950s is being used on the flag of the EU today. Former President of France François Mitterand was believed to be a member of the Priory, and many other very powerful people. They are also said to be in league with the CIA, MI5, and the Mafia. As for the Merovingians, their bloodline continues on. Through incestuous intermarriage, most of the royal families of Europe can claim descent from them. And from these royal families, have come all 44 of the United States Presidents.

Lapsit Exillis – The Stone That Fell From Heaven
The Ordo Lapsit Exillis is named after the Stone that fell from Heaven, the fabled jewel that is said to have fallen from Lucifer’s crown during the war in Heaven, and which in the occult is used as a symbol of enlightenment – of the descent of divine light form the mind of God into the mind of Man. As such it symbolizes Venus, the Morning Star, as well as the Luciferian doctrine of the initiates, the secret knowledge which men are not allowed, and which Lucifer’s angels were cast from Heaven for sharing with man. In Freemasonry, this is symbolized as the Blazing Star, which is often depicted as falling from Heaven. As Albert Pike writes in Morals and Dogma, The Blazing Star has been regarded as an emblem of Omniscience, or the All-Seeing Eye, which to the ancients was the Sun. Masons also represent the Lapsit Exillis as the Stone that was rejected – the secret cornerstone of Solomon’s Temple which symbolizes the core of their teachings.
For us, the Lapsit Exillis is also a cornerstone, for it is the solid rock upon which our ideals stand, and upon which we have built our work. For us, the Stone that fell from Heaven provides the foundation of our fraternity, and is certainly a jewel most valued.
The stone that fell to earth was an emerald that adorned Lucifer’s forehead. It was cut into the shape of a bowl by a faithful angel, and thus the Grail was born. It was given to Adam before he was expelled from the Garden of Eden. Seth, Adam’s son, having temporarily returned to the earthly paradise, took the Grail along with him. Other people transported the Grail to Montsegur, a fortress in the Pyrenees, which Lucifer’s armies besieged in order to get the Grail back and put it into their leader’s crown, out of which it had fallen; but the Grail was allegedly saved by knights who hid it within a mountain.

The Arcadian Mystique: Rebirth of the Golden Age
“The Arcadian Mystique is the subculture that is currently developing in anticipation of [the] new Golden Age – Arcadia being a term applied by the Grail family to the paradise of this era. This subculture – which will one day become, we hope, the dominant culture – is one built upon the ideas of occultism and Hermeticism, with a distinctly elitist and pro-monarchical perspective. This culture embraces traditional values – values that have withstood the test of millennia – and stands in contrast to our current weak, degenerate, egalitarian, anti-intellectual pop culture.”
– E.G.M. Tracy R. Twyman, in an interview with Wolfzeit magazine.
There is a new era dawning, a new occult revival brewing in the coffee shops and college campuses of the 21st century: one we have called the Arcadian Mystique. This spirit of the age is destined to overtake the world of art, music and literature within the next few years. In fact, it is already well underway. Witness the popularity of films like Eyes Wide Shut, From Hell, Skulls, Dogma, Stigmata, The Ninth Gate, Tomb Raider, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and The Matrix, all of which contain elements of the Arcadian Mystique. We are in an age in which Madonna studies the qaballah and Kelsey Grammar, who has named his daughter Mason, talks openly on television about Masonic mysteries. Michael Richards, who played Kramer on Seinfeld, was featured on the cover of Scottish Rite magazine not too long ago.
Arcadian themes show up in shows like Relic Hunter and The Adventures of Jules Verne, while the History channel is almost as dominated by images of the Freemasons, Templars, and Atlantean ruins as it is by images of WWII. High Times magazine recently featured a cover story about Aleister Crowley and the CIA, and a couple of years earlier, ran a story about the Priory of Sion, written by Robert Anton Wilson. Symbols, key words, and other elements are cropping up all over the place in popular culture. It is about to become mainstream without us even realizing it, and yet this subtle transformation is bound to have tremendous impact. It is nothing less than the rediscovery of the world’s most ancient tradition, the Arcadian tradition, symbolized by the Underground Stream.
Technically speaking, the Underground Stream referred to in occult parlance is the river Alpheus (from the Greek for source ), located in Arcadia, Greece. It really does go underground, too, re-emerging at the Fountain of Arethusa in Spain, and it was once believed to have been brought forth from the earth by the gods. The Greeks believed their gods had once ruled earth directly from their paradisal realm on the Arcadian Plains , during the fabled Golden Age , an era of peace, harmony, and enlightenment dictated by the mystical principles of Hermeticism.
As this era came to a close, the human descendants of the gods, the Grail families , took on their Hermetic teachings and traditions, and passed them down to their own descendants through the rituals of secrets societies. To modern occultists, then Alpheus represents an underground stream of secret knowledge passed down from the gods of the Golden Age through the subterranean Grail families and the organizational offshoots of the Prieuré de Sion – the Templars, the Rosicrucians, the Freemasons, etc. And of course, the OLE is helping to pass along this traditions as well.
Today, the Hermetic tradition of Arcadia has degenerated into a confused and conflicting collection of varied occult systems of practice and belief, most of which are more geared towards self-flattery than the continuance of a sacred tradition. And the importance of the Hermetic/Arcadian tradition has diminished as Materialism and other shallow ideals have gained prominence. Those who feel unfulfilled by the pursuit of modern ideals, and who feel something in their lives to be lacking often turn to corrupted versions of the Hermetic arts that end up doing more harm than good. As a member of the Priory of Sion, Paul le Coeur, once wrote in his book The Age of Aquarius:
…when a stream is polluted it is necessary, if you are to find the pure water, to go back to the source. It’s the same with tradition – it only remains pure at its origin.
It is the aim of the Ordo Lapsit Exillis to act as a beacon guiding worthy initiates back towards that ancient tradition, back to the source of the Underground Stream and to instigate the rebirth on the Golden Age on Earth once again. It is a process which any wise seeker of the truth would feel honored to be a part of. We hope that you will join us in this endeavor.

Hierarchy of the OLE
The Ordo Lapsit Exillis is an organization consisting of three grades: Legionnaire, Quartermaster, and Navigator. These degrees represent the level of obligation which the candidate has taken, and therefore the level of initiation that he or she has received. The following paragraphs describe the duties required of and the benefits received by the members of each grade.
Legionnaire (First Degree):
Motto: Ab initio (“From the beginning…”)
In this initiatory level, members learn about the OLE, its works and its teachings, as well as the benefits and requirements of membership. The Legionnaire is given access to the OLE’s exclusive website and discussion group, and is invited to attend Order functions. They are under no further obligation than to pay their dues for access to the site, and to remain silent about all officially classified OLE materials, including the content of the website and discussion group. If the candidate wishes to advance to the next level, he is encouraged to spend his time in the First Degree absorbing the Order’s teachings, including materials on the recommended reading list, and to meditate on the mysteries discovered therein.
We especially appreciate those who can not only read and memorize material, but who can reach within themselves to find new and different ways of interpreting the material – connections and ideas hat have not yet been made. The candidate should be able to absorb and comprehend the mysteries of the OLE on a number of levels: symbolic and literal, material and spiritual. The mysteries of our Order, and a love for the essence of the Grail should infuse the candidate’s mind, body, and soul.
In addition to learning and meditation, candidates of the First Degree are encouraged to find some way of making themselves useful to the Order, at least one method of serving the Grail in a proactive, hands-on fashion. Here are a number of suggestions, although the possibilities are by no means limited to those on this list:
Quartermaster (Second Degree)
Motto: Dirigio (“I guide…”)
Invitation to join the Second Degree is at the discretion of the Order’s Navigators, although those who feel themselves worthy may submit a written petition summarizing their qualifications, and addressed to the Outer Head of our Order, Rex Mundi.
Those of the Second Degree have proven their loyalty to the Order, sown their understanding of the teachings, and actively demonstrated their utility by serving the Grail. They are therefore initiated into some of the inner mysteries and hidden doctrines of the Order. They also continue their work in the service of our ideals, now with greater privileges, and greater responsibilities. Those of the Second Degree have the right to act as authorized agents of the OLE, and can make business or other arrangements on our behalf. (They are given official OLE calling cards for this purpose.) They may also sponsor legionnaires that they believe should be advanced to the next level. They are given access to materials and receive benefits that members of the Legion do not. They communicate directly with the Navigators of the Order on issues of concern.
Navigator (Third Degree)
Motto: Ad Augusta Per Angusta (“To holy places through narrow spaces.”)
Those elevated to the Third Degree have shown extraordinary understandings, usefulness, and loyalty to the Order. They have also demonstrated their ability to keep silent about classified OLE materials, and to meet their obligations to the Order. The Navigators are those who direct the policy and activities of the Order. They are initiated into all of the Order’s inner mysteries. They obtain maximum benefits from their membership. About the details of the Navigator no more can be said.

Statement by Boyd Rice
from LucidZoom Website
On December 23rd, St. Dagobert’s Day, of 2003, Boyd Rice formally and absolutely dissolved the organization known as the ORDO LAPSIT EXILLIS, citing internal corruption of its purposes, goals and function by core members, namely Tracy Twyman and Brian Albert, who was never actually recognized as a legitimate member by most of us. The Order was never intended to serve as a business, moneymaking organization or a corporation, nor was it ever intended to serve as a vehicle for the self-aggrandizement or self-promotion of any single member, regardless of rank in the hierarchy of the Order.
Neither Mr. Rice nor those who have resigned their positions within the order, including myself, recognize the legitimacy of the current membership of the organization calling itself the ORDO LAPSIT EXILLIS, nor do we acknowledge the legitimacy of the use of the name “ORDO LAPSIT EXILLIS” as applied to any organization or order currently in existence and claiming service to God and the Grail.
Furthermore, it should be known that the title of Exalted Grand Master as proposed by Ms Twyman never held any legitimacy in the Order, nor did Ms. Twyman hold any such title at any time. The only title ever granted to Tracy Twyman was the spurious title of “Baroness Von Twyman” granted to her by Tom Weir AKA “Nicholas DeVere” of the so-called “Dragon Court.” This title was apparently so embarrassing that it was never used publicly.
Neither Rice nor any of the former members of the now-defunct OLE recognize any “Dragon Court” as having any legitimate claim to any crown, throne or aristocracy.
Furthermore, Rice has asked Ms. Twyman and Mr. Albert to cease and desist using any of his copyrighted material or intellectual property in print, on websites or in conjunction with DAGOBERT’S REVENGE or their Organization. This includes, but is not limited to, interviews conducted by Mr. Rice or with Mr. Rice, articles and editorials authored by Mr. Rice and any image, be it photographic or otherwise, of Mr. Rice.
Be it also known that any incidents of harassment perpetrated against Mr. Rice or the former members of the O.L.E. have been and are being documented for criminal and civil follow-ups.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Mr. Rice is still pursuing his Grail research and the inner circle of core members still continues to function as a self-supporting research and action team. There will be a new website and organization that will be fully sanctioned by Boyd Rice. Participation in it will be made available to those who seek to serve the Grail in earnest.
Finally, as an open inquiry to Tracy Twyman:
You have decided to distance yourself from Boyd Rice. Despite his repeated requests to remove all that is his intellectual property and copyrighted material from your websites, you have refused and failed to do so.
If you are going to grandstand and make an issue of your independence and your not needing to be associated with Boyd Rice, then why not show the courage of your convictions and distance yourself once and for all? You may do so by removing his material now.
P.S. Knowledge of the Grail doesn’t come with a “non-refundable fee” attached.
This statement was necessitated by Ms. Twyman’s refusal to comply with repeated requests to remove Rice’s writings etc from her various Pay-Per-View websites and out of Rice’s concern for people earnestly seeking association with the original OLE, as well as his colleagues and associates.
