Necronomicon for Android

Necronomicon for Android Screen Shot

BriefCaseIT has just released its newest application for the Android Market Necronomicon at the competitive price of just $0.99!!!

The Necronomicon originated as a fictional book in the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and grew into an extended literary in-joke as other horror writers organically added to the Cthulhu mythos. According to Lovecraft, it was written by Abdul Alhazred, ‘a mad Arab poet of the Yemen’, in 950 A.D. in Damascus. In many of the stories written by Lovecraft and his successors, merely reading or possessing the Necronomicon leads to insanity …or worse.

How Lovecraft conceived the name Necronomicon is not clear — Lovecraft said that the title came to him in a dream. Although some have suggested that Lovecraft was influenced primarily byRobert W. Chambers‘ collection of short stories The King in Yellow, which centers on a mysterious and disturbing play in book form, Lovecraft is not believed to have read that work until 1927.

Donald R. Burleson has argued that the idea for the book was derived from Nathaniel Hawthorne, though Lovecraft himself noted that “mouldy hidden manuscripts” were one of the stock features ofGothic literature.

Lovecraft wrote that the title, as translated from the Greek language, meant “an image of the law of the dead”: nekros – νεκρός (“dead”), nomos – νόμος (“law”), eikon – εικών (“image”). Robert M. Price notes that the title has been variously translated by others as “Book of the names of the dead”, “Book of the laws of the dead”, “Book of dead names” and “Knower of the laws of the dead”. S. T. Joshi states that Lovecraft’s own etymology is “almost entirely unsound. The last portion of it is particularly erroneous, since -ikon is nothing more than a neuter adjectival suffix and has nothing to do with eikõn (image).” Joshi translates the title as “Book considering (or classifying) the dead.”

Lovecraft was often asked about the veracity of the Necronomicon, and always answered that it was completely his invention. In a letter to Willis Conover, Lovecraft elaborated upon his typical answer:

Now about the “terrible and forbidden books” — I am forced to say that most of them are purely imaginary. There never was any Abdul Alhazred or Necronomicon, for I invented these names myself. Robert Bloch devised the idea of Ludvig Prinn and his De Vermis Mysteriis, while the Book of Eibon is an invention of Clark Ashton Smith’s. Robert E. Howard is responsible for Friedrich von Junzt and his Unaussprechlichen Kulten…. As for seriously-written books on dark, occult, and supernatural themes — in all truth they don’t amount to much. That is why it’s more fun to invent mythical works like the Necronomicon and Book of Eibon.

Reinforcing the book’s fictionalization, the name of the book’s supposed author, Abdul Alhazred, is not even a grammatically correct Arabic name. The name “Abdul” simply means “the worshiper/slave of…”. Standing alone, it would make no sense, as Alhazred is not a last name in the Western sense, but a reference to a person’s place of birth.

Ancient Aliens on the History Channel discuss Enoch

Ancient Aliens is an American television series that premiered on April 20, 2010 on the History channel. Produced by Prometheus Entertainment, the tv show discusses theories of ancient astronauts and suggest  historical books, archaeology and local legends contain evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact and communication. The show has been criticized for presenting disputed pseudo science.

The shows really dig deep in the history of your civilization and our existence. It’s a great resource of knowledge for those who are interested in paranormal, aliens and a little more than just a history that you’re being told in schools. The show is filled with true facts, actual places and true events in human history. Really opens your mind for new possibilities and shapes of history.

One of the books mentioned frequently in the show is known as the Book of Enoch. Despite the brief descriptions of him, Enoch is one of the main two focal points for much of the 1st millennium BC Jewish mysticism, notably in the Book of Enoch. Additionally, Enoch is important in some Christian denominations: He is commemorated as one of the Holy Forefathers in the Calendar of Saints of the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Armenian Catholic Church on July 26.

If you would like to read more about Enoch and his adventures we offer The first two books on the Android Market.

I owe where I am today because of the knowledge I have acquired while being a student at BCCC IT Department. One of the courses I had a privilege to take was Java Programming. The java class (excuse the pun) was a step into the right direction for my developing IT company and I. Having just purchased an android phone. I decided to apply the concepts I was learning into real world Android applications. Starting with informational apps, moving into more technical things like automated media installation and easy construction calculator.  Thousands of downloads and a great new product line. Which leads me into our newest app. The BCCC News Application. This application delivers high quality news directly to the student.  Easy to use interface all students understand. This application will help with all the upcoming news.

Dantes Inferno from Divine Comedy

Inferno (Italian for “Hell”) is the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso. It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through what is largely the medieval concept of Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth. Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and rejection of sin.

The Book Of Shadows

A Book of Shadows is a book containing religious texts and instructions for magical rituals found within the Neopagan religion of Wicca. Originating within the Gardnerian tradition of the Craft, the first Book of Shadows was created by the pioneering Wiccan Gerald Gardner sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s, and which he utilised first in his Bricket Wood coven and then in other covens which he founded in following decades. The concept of the Book of Shadows was then adopted by other Wiccan traditions, such as Alexandrianism and Mohsianism, and with the rise of books teaching people how to begin following Wicca in the 1970s onward, the idea of the Book of Shadows was then further propagated amongst solitary practitioners unconnected to earlier traditions.
