Analysing Anti-Fascist Prejudice And Propaganda
In Relation To The O9A

Prejudice is “preconceived opinion not based on reason or actual experience; bias, partiality; unreasoned dislike, hostility; an unreasoning preference or objection; a preliminary or anticipatory judgement.”

Propaganda is “the systematic dissemination of information, especially in a biased or misleading way, in order to promote a political cause or point of view.” {1}

In respect of the O9A (Order of Nine Angles), a reading of the “O9A” section of a 2019 report issued by a particular anti-fascist organisation is sufficient to either (i) reveal that they are spreading disinformation and propganda, and/or (ii) reveal their ignorance about the O9A, and/or (iii) reveal their prejudice. A revealing evident in their subsequent writings about the O9A.

Why prejudiced? To write or to speak about a matter or about a person or about a group in a reasonable, non-prejudiced way, is to have actual experience of the matter, person or group, or to be probative regarding the matter, person or group: that is, to have actual proof or evidence which validates what is written or said. Valid evidence would be evidence from primary O9A source material {2} and placed into the context of the O9A corpus thus avoiding the common errors of the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter, the fallacy of argumentum ad verecundiam, and the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, fallacies which some academics commit {3}{4} and which propagandists invariably commit either deliberately or out of ignorance.

In the matter of the O9A, the anti-fascists in question have no actual proof or evidence from primary sources which validates what they have written about the O9A. When they do quote O9A material or alleged O9A material they provide no references to the text, printed or on-line; do not give the author of the original material; often misattribute the quote, and fail to provide context (vis-a-vis the O9A corpus) and thus, either propagandistically or due to ignorance, commit the fallacy of illicit transference. {5}

In respect of their Prejudice and their Propaganda they for example, wrote:

§ In the 1990s the leadership of the O9A was taken over by Richard Moult

This reveals a bias because there is no evidence to support the claim that the O9A has or had a “leader” with voluminous O9A texts from the 1980s onwards clearly stating that the O9A has no leader – and thus is a leaderless, non-hierarchical, Occult movement or sub-culture {6} – with the author of most O9A texts, the pseudonymous “Anton Long”, never making any claim regarding his authority and power, and even writing to Michael Aquino of the Temple of Set that in the O9A there is “no acceptance of someone else’s authority” and that “I claim no authority.” {7}

Furthermore, one of the foundational principles of the O9A sub-culture is the anarchist “principle of the authority of individual judgment”, which means that anyone, associating or identifying themselves with the Occult sub-culture that is the O9A, is free to interpret and to manifest O9A Occult philosophy in whatever way they choose. {8} This principle in practice also means:

(i) that no author, no individual, no nexion, can present or represent the view or the opinion of the entity termed the Order of Nine Angles,
(ii) that the O9A does not have, never has had, and never will have an “official policy” about anything, and never has, and never will make “official statements” about anything; and
(iii) that the only authority which is meaningful for the O9A is the individual one which results from the exoteric and esoteric pathei mathos of each individual who is part of or who associates themselves with the O9A.

In effect, the anti-fascists in question were (i) producing and spreading disinformation – deliberately false information – or (ii) they were revealing their ignorance regarding the Occult philosophy and the praxises of the O9A, or (iii) expressing their prejudice, their partiality, their unreasoned dislike, their hostility, about and regarding the O9A.

If they were spreading disinformation, it reveals their prejudice, their bias. If they were revealing in public their ignorance about the O9A then they were also revealing their prejudice, their unreasoned, ill-informed dislike of the O9A.

In another example they wrote, in respect of Moult and Myatt:

§ Rather than true conversions, they were following what they themselves describe as “insight” – a deliberate ploy to infiltrate, explore and subvert other organisations and religions, especially those that offer recruits the chance to learn violent skills

This reveals prejudice, a bias, for three reasons. First, because the anti-fascists provide no evidence for their claim that those “conversions” were not genuine; second, because they provide no evidence for their claim that either Moult or Myatt, in respect of the O9A, named and described something termed “insight”; and third, because the use of the term “insight” by such anti-fascists either (i) reveals that they were spreading disinformation about the O9A or (ii) reveals their ignorance about the O9A.

For what O9A texts repeatedly mention are Insight Rôles, not “insight”, and which rôles form part of the tasks of an External Adept and only last for between one year and eighteen months, after which the person moves on to other tasks. {9}.

Thus, the claim that the decades later “conversions” of Moult and Myatt were “insight” – that is, Insight Rôles – is nonsensical in the context of the O9A, since no one O9A undertakes Insight Rôles in their later years, as a study of O9A texts would have revealed.

In another example, the anti-fascists wrote:

§ Myatt has also publicly left the O9A

This reveals prejudice, a bias, for several reasons. First, they provide no evidence for their claim that Myatt publicly left the O9A. Where are the public texts written by Myatt where he states he has publicly left the O9A? Where are the public texts written by Myatt where he claims to have been O9A? There are no such texts.

Second, even if their defence is the claim that Myatt was the pseudonymous “Anton Long” then neither they nor anyone else has provided any evidence – any facts based on primary sources or documents – to substantiate such a claim, such a malicious allegation. It is thus a preconceived opinion, or disinformation, or the unreasonable repetition of rumours; in all of which cases it amounts to bias, to prejudice, to being unfair.

In addition, they conveniently did not balance their unproven claims about Myatt by mentioning that three academics have expressed doubts about Myatt being the pseudonymous “Anton Long”, with (i) George Sieg writing that he considered it to be “implausible and untenable based on the extent of variance in writing style, personality, and tone” between Myatt and Long’s writings {10}, with (ii) Jeffrey Kaplan stating that Myatt and Long are separate people, {11} and with (iii) Connell Monette writing that it was quite possible that ‘Anton Long’ was a pseudonym used by multiple individuals over the last 30 years. {12}

All people who have claimed or who claim that Myatt was the pseudonymous “Anton Long” present and rely on are two things: (i) forgeries such as the two manuscripts titled Diablerie and Bealuwes Gast {13} and (ii) the analysis by Senholt in a Master’s thesis, later updated and included as a chapter in the book The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity {14} with Myatt in a section of his essay A Matter Of Honour sub-titled The Logical Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence – A Case Study, {15} having analysed in some detail the claims made by Senholt, concluding that the claims are not tenable. As in the matter of the O9A, no one in the case of Myatt has studied and provided as evidence of involvement primary sources relating to his life {16}.

In another example the anti-fascists wrote:

§ but again this is highly suspect as Moult recently admitted that the two remain in regular contact

This is not a rational statement because they provide no evidence for their claim as to why it is “highly suspect”. Does the fact that two friends are in “regular contact” mean something suspicious or sinister is going on? No, it only means that two friends are in regular contact unless and until there are facts – evidence – to the contrary. Until there are such facts the statement remains either disinformation or prejudicial. In either case it causes or can cause prejudice.

In yet another example they wrote:

§ the presumption must be that he is still actively involved in the nazi occult organisation he has spent almost 50 years supporting and leading.

Their bias is obvious in three things. First, that their presumption “must be”. It is unreasonable to claim that a presumption “must be” since a presumption is just a presumption, and thus is “the action of taking for granted or presuming something; assumption, supposition.” This statement that their supposition “must be” is therefore either wilful propaganda or ignorance.

Second, obvious bias in the statement “still actively involved”, because no evidence, no facts based on primary sources, are or have been presented, by that anti-fascist group or by anyone else, that he – Myatt – was ever involved with the O9A in the first place.

Third, obvious bias in the claim that “he has spent almost 50 years supporting and leading” since yet again no evidence, no facts based on primary sources, are or have been presented regarding such supporting and such leading.

On balance, therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that the entire statement is biased and misleading propaganda.

While many more examples of their bias and/or of their ignorance could be presented, sufficient have been presented here, and elsewhere {17}, for us to arrive at a reasonable conclusion in the matter of the pronouncements made about the O9A by a particular anti-fascist group.

Conclusion

It seems reasonable to conclude that the anti-fascist group in question is, in regard to the O9A, either deliberately spreading disinformation or is making statements and assumptions which are unreasonable because they are not evidential, that is, not based on a knowledge of the facts, on an unbiased study of primary O9A sources {2} and thus reveal either a basic ignorance of the nature of the O9A sub-culture or an unreasoned, an unethical, dislike; that is, a prejudice.

For a group which prides itself on offering “hope” rather than “hate”, their ignorance about or their bias, their prejudice against the O9A, and their ignorance about or their bias in respect of Mr Moult and Mr Myatt, contradicts their claim to champion “hope”. For ignorance, prejudice and disinformation, are often the genesis of hate.

{1} The definitions are taken from the complete Oxford English Dictionary, second edition (20 volumes), Oxford University Press, 1989.

{2} In regard to O9A primary sources, these consist of the O9A corpus – written by “Anton Long” from the 1970s to 2011, and later (2011-2019) by the “inner ONA” – and thus range from the 1980s Black Book of Satan to Naos, and The Deofel Quartet, to post-2011 works such as (i) The Pagan O9A, 2015, (ii) The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles, 2016, and (iii) A Compilation Of Some Recent O9A Texts: 2017 – 2019.

The O9A corpus amounts to over 5,000 pages of written material. As noted in an academic paper presented at the international conference, Satanism in the Modern World, held at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim on the 19-20th of November, 2009,

           “the ONA has produced more material on both the practical and theoretical aspects of magic, as well as more ideological texts on Satanism and the Left-Hand Path in general, than larger groups such as the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set has produced in combination [which] makes the ONA an important player in the theoretical discussion of what the Left-Hand Path and Satanism is and should be according to the practitioners.” Archive source: https://regardingdavidmyatt.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/senholt-the-sinister-tradition.pdf

{3} A classic example of the fallacy of illicit transference is the 2017 essay about the O9A by Della E. Campion of the University of Washington. See https://wyrdsister.wordpress.com/2018/04/24/another-academic-misinterpretation-of-the-o9a/

{4} A classic example of argumentum ad verecundiam – the fallacy of appeal to authority – is the section on the O9A by Massimo Introvigne in his Satanism: A Social History published in 2016. He relies on the opinions about the O9A by other authors, such as Goodrick-Clarke and Senholt.

He also commits another common fallacy, that of illicit transference, by arguing from the particular to the general, referencing one O9A item and then claiming that the opinion of the author in that item represents the opinion of the O9A. As we note later on in respect of the principle of the authority of individual judgment, no author, no individual, no nexion, can present or represent the view or the opinion of the entity termed the Order of Nine Angles.

Exposing Ignorance About The O9A

Ignorance About The O9A
(pdf)

°°°°°°°°°

Between 2018 and 2019 the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) has received unprecedented coverage in the mainstream Media leading to an unprecedented mention of the O9A on various internet forums and blogs.

This coverage has a common denominator: from the coverage in 2018 in America and elsewhere of the alleged link between the O9A and the American neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division to an article about the O9A on a popular youth-orientated on-line music site to the recent report issued by the political, left-wing, pro-Zionist, pressure group to coverage of that report in mainstream British newspapers such as The Independent, The Sun, and The Daily Telegraph, all of which newspapers made mention of the O9A.

The common denominator is the alleged neo-nazi and satanist raison d’être of the O9A and which raison d’être allegedly involves members infiltrating and manipulating “extremist right-wing” groups in order to disrupt society.

Which reveals a complete – although not unexpected – ignorance and misunderstanding of the O9A

David Myatt, National Socialism, And The Order Of Nine Angles

Contents:

° Is David Myatt Still A Neo-Nazi?

“While the question is David Myatt still a neo-nazi has been asked many times over the past six or seven years – with academics such as Senholt seeming to answer in the affirmative and with Myatt himself consistently denying that he is – many items written by Myatt since 2010, and his reclusive lifestyle since 2010, seen to indicate that he is no longer a neo-nazi […]
             Correctly understood, via a thorough study of the O9A corpus, the O9A is neither satanist nor neo-nazi and as a practical movement in the real world is based more on anarchy than on anything else.”

° The Myattian Saga Continues

“In the decades long and on-going saga of whether or not David Myatt is or was Anton Long of Order of Nine Angles fame some of Mr Myatt’s latest writings are intriguing and seem to provide more proof that, as he has maintained all along, he is not and was not Anton Long, founder of the O9A…..”

Which aspects are (i) Occult knowledge – esoteric and pagan traditions, Greco-Roman, Arabic, and Persian – absent from other manifestations of modern Western Occultism; (ii) the link which the O9A has through this knowledge to those ancient traditions; and (iii) the scholarly research done by the authors of such O9A texts.

The scope and contents of the texts serve to distinguish the O9A from all other modern Occult groups be such groups described as Occult, Satanist, or of the Western Left Hand Path.

This 144 page compilation thus compliments the O9A texts in the following four compilations:
(i) the seventh, 1460 page, edition of Guide To The Order Of Nine Angles issued in 2014 (external link),

Exposing Twelve Basic Errors

In a recent report much quoted in mainstream Media the anti-fascist ‘special interest’ group calling itself “Hope not hate” devoted two sections (pages 80-85) to the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and David Myatt.

The shoddy and propagandistic – the “fake news” – nature of the report is evident in the fact that in those two sections there are over twelve basic, factual, errors ranging from outright fabrications to misquotations.

Another fundamental – damning – flaw is that various O9A and other articles are quoted but without providing references to the date and place of publication and without giving the name of the author on the original text with some articles which are falsely attributed to Myatt having been written by others.

Other fundamental flaws are that the author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt provided no evidence for their many assumptions (such as that Myatt=Long) and did not balance their claims by asking those they libelled for their comments.

That the mainstream Media published articles which extensively quoted from the pages about the O9A and Myatt in the report yet did not have its journalists ask those maligned by the report for comments, and did not have its journalists check the facts beforehand, is indicative of how even the mainstream Media is complicit in spreading “fake news”.

Had a mainstream journalist or journalists bothered to check the facts they would have found the following.

§ Quote: “For Myatt, satanism and fascism are inextricably linked.” p.84

A fabrication by the author, since Myatt in his extensive critique of Occultism first published in 1997 by Renaissance Press in New Zealand wrote:
                  “National-Socialism and Occultism are fundamentally, and irretrievably, incompatible and opposed to each other.” {1}

§ The author gives a quote allegedly written by Myatt: “National Socialism is the only real theory in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance. In a very important sense, National Socialism IS contemporary Paganism.” p.84

The author not only misquotes the original text but mistakenly attributes it to Myatt.

° The correct quotation is:
                  “National Socialism (with the esoteric exception of Traditional Satanism) is the only real Heresy in existence, since it is based solely on the highest ideals of Honour, Loyalty and Duty, championed over and above selfish individual pursuits. It calls for a revolution of the Soul; a Triumph of the Will; a return of racial pride and defiance – of all that epitomizes the genuine Western ethos. It is a form that cannot be bought by The System, and thus the only option for the latter is to jail or kill National Socialists, and smash through innumerable legislative variations National Socialist influence, naturally dormant in the Western – or Aryan – people. It is the only form which frightens The System, and is thus the only form capable of achieving System Breakdown.”

The quotation is from a Temple 88 newsletter published in a compilation by Caput Mortuum in May 2004 via the now defunct website. {2}

° In addition and importantly, according to the Anti-Defamation League
                  “the berserker brotherhood is a relatively new motorcycle division of temple 88, a white supremacist group that describes itself as a brotherhood of white separatists. The berserker brotherhood colors have a skull in the middle of an iron cross, flanked on the right by the number 88. One anonymous berserker brotherhood member claimed on a social networking Web site that temple 88 originally formed in South Carolina’s Allendale Correctional Institute.” {3}

§ Quote: “The three volumes of The Black Book of Satan are considered so extreme that they are kept is a special section of the British Library and not available to the general public.” p.81

In fact, only two versions of the first volume are kept in the British Library. The first version was published in 1984 and is at General Reference Collection Cup.815/51.

The second version was published in 1992 under the title Codex Saerus and is at General Reference Collection YK.1994.b.12337.

Other O9A items kept in the British Library include the rare edition of Naos: a practical guide to modern magick published by Coxland Press in 1990, available at General Reference Collection YK.1993.a.13307.

§ Quote: “O9A literature regularly advocates ritualised rape, random attacks on innocent victims.” p.81

A fabrication by the author.

A study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 – from the pro-Sapphic novel Breaking The Silence Down {4} to the essay The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos {5} – reveals the O9A attitude toward women, with the O9A code of kindred honour embodying respect for women and gender equality {5} and with the O9A having “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.” {6}

Nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate rape.

In fact the O9A consider rapists as suitable candidates for culling {7}.

In addition, nowhere in the corpus of O9A texts written by “Anton Long” between the 1970s and 2011 does the O9A advocate random attacks on innocent victims.

§ Quote: “The ceremony ends with the killing of a chosen one; in a symbolic sacrifice, an animal replaces a person.” p.81

The ceremony in question is The Ceremony of Recalling and nowhere is there any mention of sacrificing an animal, which is fabrication on the part of the author. The ceremony is included in the text Grimoire of Baphomet.

In addition, O9A texts dating from the 1980s and 1990s reveal that they “despise animal sacrifice.” {8}

§ Quote: “When asked in 2005 if the O9A were posing as nazis to recruit and spread their message, Myatt – writing under the name Darkos Lago – responded: You seem to have missed the point about ONA and National Socialism.” p. 82

Where is the evidence for the propagandistic assumption that Myatt used that or any other pseudonym? The author provides no evidence whatsoever.

In addition, the author not only gets the year wrong but misattributes the quote. The post was published in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos not by Darkos Lago {9}.

§ Quote: “To Myatt, Satanism represented the Black Order, the only force that could unlock the stranglehold [of] the White Order.” p. 84

A fabrication, for Myatt does not mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings, be such writings from his time as a National Socialist (1968-1998), as a Muslim (1998-2009) or as an advocate of his numinous way/philosophy of pathei-mathos (2010-present).

Neither does “Anton Long” mention a “Black Order” and a “White Order” in any of his writings.

§ Quote: “In an interview as recently as 2013, Myatt explained their strategy. “Insofar as I understand the matter, it seems that the ‘satanic’ overtones of the ONA serves several subversive purposes.” p.83.

The quoted text was not an interview with Myatt, was not published in 2013 but was posted in 2016 on the “right-wing” Stormfront internet forum by Dark Logos {9}.

§ Quote: “In the 1990s the leadership of the O9A was taken over by Richard Moult.”

The author reveals a basic lack of understanding of the O9A. For there is not and never was a “leader” of the O9A, as a study of the O9A corpus from the 1980s to 2018 makes clear. {10}

According to Professor Monette the O9A
                  “is not a structured lodge or temple, but rather a movement, a subculture or perhaps metaculture that its adherents choose to embody or identify with.” {11}

That is, the O9A is a collection of autonomous cells (nexions) and individuals who follow or who are inspired by the Occult philosophy and practices described in the O9A corpus.

§ Quote: “In 2001 I met David Myatt in a Shropshire pub, close to where he shared a caravan with Richard Moult.”

The author fabricates where both Myatt and Moult then lived. At the time Myatt lived in the village of Leigh Sinton near Malvern with his wife and family while Moult lived with his female partner on a farm near Lydbury North in Shropshire.

These facts were known to both the police and MI5 since Myatt was under surveillance following his arrest by Special Branch in 1998 and his interrogation in 1999 by the anti-terrorist squad in relation to Copeland’s nail-bomb attacks in London. At the time of the interview with Lowles, Myatt was still on bail following his 1998 arrest with one of his bail conditions being that he attend Charing Cross police station on a regular basis.

In addition, the places of residence could be confirmed by County Council tax reports, by tax returns from HM Revenue and Customs, and by other official documents, with Myatt at the time working on a farm near Malvern.

Myatt’s version of the interview with Lowles {12} provides a different version of the events.

§ Errors on pseudonyms.

The author gets the following pseudonyms wrong. He has

° Christos Beast – instead of Christos Beest
° Darkos Lago – instead of Dark Logos
° A. A. Morian – instead of A. A. Morain
° Michael Mouthwork – instead of Michael Morthwork

§ Logical Fallacies.

The author of the sections on the O9A and Myatt commits two basic logical fallacies.

° First, he commits the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, Which is, to quote Myatt, {13} “when material concerning or assumptions about a particular matter are selected and presented to support a particular argument or conclusion, while other material or assumptions which do not support, which contradict, the chosen argument or conclusion are withheld or not discussed. In effect, selective evidence and/or selective argument are used in order to ‘prove’ a particular point.”

The author thus omits to mention or quote from O9A texts which contradict his assumptions or which place into context the quotations he uses. The author also omits to quote from Myatt’s extensive post-2010 writings about his rejection of extremism and about his mystical, ethical, philosophy of pathei-mathos; quotations which would provide Myatt’s side of the story.

In the case of the O9A the author does not, for example, in the matter of “culling” mention or quote from O9A texts which reveal that there is wide diversity of opinion within the O9A as to whether O9A culling is real or merely part of its Labyrinthos Mythologicus {14} and thus just
                  “a test of occult intuition and a test also designed to put many people off, cause controversy and so generate interest in the O9A.” {15}

As Richard Moult recently wrote:
                  “Regarding culling: I have always understood this to be a mischievous aspect of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and during my time associated with its Septenary techniques, I experienced nothing to suggest otherwise.” {16}

The same questions regarding the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus apply in the matter of the O9A suggesting Insight Roles that may involve criminal acts.

° Second, the author of the sections in the report dealing with the O9A and Myatt commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter. Which is the use of particular individual cases to form a general rule to then use that rule to describe, and thence to blame, or to castigate, or to defame a whole group.

Thus the author uses selective quotes from people who have associated themselves with the O9A and uses his selection to describe and to defame the O9A.

Trusting In Fake News

So many errors and flaws in so few pages exposes the sections on the O9A and Myatt in the report as untrustworthy, as “fake news”, as propaganda designed to discredit written by an author with a particular political agenda.

The sections on the O9A and Myatt are also a masterclass in how to write, distribute, and have the mainstream Media publish fake news, to thus get the public to believe and spread such fake news.

The Nihilist O9A

Posted: January 25th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, Nihilism, O9A, O9A Nine Angles, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Nihilist O9A

°°°°°°°°°

Some caveats aside, there is – at least in our view – a fairly insightful analysis of the Order of Nine Angles published in 2017 in an article with the title Order of the Nine Angles and Supremacy of the Fringe.

Which item hints at what the ONA is really all about and just how it differs from the boring ‘satanism’ of Levey et al. Here are just a few of the interesting points made in that analysis.

{begin quote}

§          The popular notion of Satanism rarely lays stress on the political aspect of it. Seemingly, its radical individualism submits the ideological ambitions to the needs of individual self-expression – or self-indulgence – rendering it to a large degree a-political, at least at first glance. When we come to deal with the sinister dialectic of O9A, we are soon forced to realize that deep down the real stress is precisely on politics; the politics taken in the most radical sense of inciting the end of the present world (Aeon) and the creation of the new man and the new world.

§         The idea of influencing the broader society by subversion ranging from inducing moral depravity to terrorist acts is the nucleus of O9A metaphysics.

§         What really makes O9A stand out is how high it sets the bar: every other conceivable form of radical politics can potentially be assimilated, provided it is genuinely directed against the system, towards the creation of the new world and the new man. Through it all it is astonishingly truthful to the principles of modernity – radical subjectivity and dissolution of it in the further radicalization of freedom, evolutionary principle driven to the extreme and technical approach to human inner life.

§         The purpose of [the] trickster [insight] role playing game is to create strife, chaos, confusion and – Satan willing – bloodshed in order, not only to open oneself to the chaos of acausal, but also to create the same disposition in the social groups and society at large.

{end quote}

Finally, perhaps the most interesting bit of all:

{begin quote}

§         In a strictly philosophical sense this truly is a form of Satanism. What makes it ominous is that, when you ponder about it a bit, it really isn’t detached from presuppositions of the mainstream, seemingly anti-metaphysical, notions about man and history. O9A has an ontology and metaphysics of Satanism, but it is fairly in accordance with both extreme empiricists and supposedly opposed Heideggerian understanding of getting over the metaphysics (überwindung der Metaphysik): rejecting the error of transcendence towards above. The only step needed to develop what would properly be called ‘subphysics’ is to draw the final consequences of this decision.

{end quote}

For what the ONA really amounts to – in our view – is Chaos (χάος). Bringing the chaos of the acausal into our temporal (causal) world. By any means possible, and without any checks or balances, such as ‘God’ or even ‘Satan’ as described by both Nazarenes and by material egoists such as Howard Levey.

In this sense, the Order of Nine Angles really is nihilist, anarchic, and redefines what ‘modernism’ – metaphysically and in reality (esoterically and exoterically) – means, or perhaps should now mean.

O9A: The Nine Angles

O9A: The Nine Angles

I. Extract from the 2018 text The Tree Of Wyrd And The Star Game: An Overview. {1}

{quote}

The above is a Renaissance illustration of the septenary Tree of Wyrd, from the book Azoth Sive Aureliae Occultae Philosophorum published in 1613 CE, which illustration includes the three fundamental alchemical substances, Salt, Sulphur, Mercury, whose nine transformations form the “nine angles” of the O9A and which nine angles are represented by the pieces of the O9A’s Star Game thus:

II. Extract from the 2013 text Originality, Tradition, And The Order of Nine Angles. {2}

{quote}

A study of O9A [Order of Nine Angles] texts reveals that, from the 1970s on, their ‘nine angles’ refer to the nine combinations – the “numinous symbols of cliology” (qv. the 1990s text ‘Aeonic Magick: A Basic Introduction’) – of the three basic alchemical substances (Mercury, Sulphur, Salt) which are represented in the pieces of the 1970s vintage O9A Star Game. These nine angles/combinations were first outlined in the 1974 text Emanations of Urania, and which nine combinations can be used to symbolize how the the causal and the acausal are manifest to us, as for instance in our psyche (in the nexion of causal/acausal that we are) via archetypes, ‘personality types’, and the esoteric correspondences of the O9A Tree of Wyrd.Furthermore, according to Anton Long his inspiration for this 1970s theory of cliology – of nine alchemical combinations or emanations – was an ancient Arabic manuscript, of a few folios, he read while travelling and studying in the Middle East and Asia in 1971, and to which MS some scribe had added some scholia and the title Al-Kitab Al-Alfak (which translates as The Book of The Spheres), for in ancient Muslim alchemy and cosmology there are nine cosmic spheres or ‘supernatural’ realms. {3}

The most distant of these spheres or realms is falak al-aflak, the ‘primary of the spheres’. Below this (and thus nearer to us) is al-kawakib al-thabitah, the realm of the heavenly fixed stars. Next is Zuhal, the sphere of Saturn. Then there is Mushtari, the sphere of Jupiter, followed by Marikh (Mars); Shams (the Sun); Zuhrah (Venus); Utarid (Mercury); and finally Qamar, the sphere of the Moon.

The O9A Dark Art Of Shrenching

The Dark Art Of Shrenching
(pdf)

Those curious about the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) who turn toward the four fictional stories that make up The Deofel Quartet expecting to find ‘horror’ stories or stories of bloody satanic sacrifice, or graphically described sexual or fetishistic satanic rituals, or de Sade like violence, sadism, and dominance, may well be disappointed […]

Nowhere is the dissonance between such expectations – of stories of horror, blood, sacrifice, sex, fetishism, satanic rituals, and sadism – and the Occult reality of The Deofel Quartet greater than in the story titled The Greyling Owl.

This fictional story – of some 130 pages – was published in 1986 ev and is set in and around the English city of York in the year 1976, with the story revealing “how the O9A often operates, and has operated, in the real world” for decades […]

What is described is The Dark Art Of Shrenching, otherwise known as Sinister Cloaking. A difficult Dark, Occult, Art to master involving as it can deceiving others about one’s intentions, and/or entrapping others for some sinister purpose.

In the O9A the most obvious use of The Dark Art Of Shrenching is in Insight Roles […]

Yet The Greyling Owl describes a somewhat hitherto neglected part of O9A tradition. Which is that Shrenching may also be a necessary part of those who, via the Seven Fold Way, have progressed beyond The Abyss and who thus have attained the Occult grade of Master of Temple, or Mistress of Earth […]
