Nihilism And The O9A

The author of a previous item we have mentioned {1} has – or so it seems – “connected some more of the metaphysical dots” between the Order of Nine Angles and nihilism and which nihilism thus takes the O9A far beyond the “neo-nazism” that it is commonly but mistakenly said by the Occult illiterati and by the Media to espouse.

In an article titled Virtual Reality and Terrorism the author quotes from an O9A text published in Naos {2} decades ago which states that:
                   “For a long time the nature of the Left Hand Path has been misunderstood. The traditional definition as magick use for personal/destructive/negative purposes is meaningless because it assumes a framework of moral opposites, which does not, in reality, exist in relation to magickal energies. All evolution of consciousness is a magickal act – an expansion of the acausal into realm of the causal. From the ‘traditional’, moral/ Nazarene point of view all such evolution, of necessity, becomes evil. It is unfortunate that, for a long time, this simple fact has been obscured by silly systems like Qabala with its notions of a Dark Side of the Tree. No dark side exists, because what actually exists is dark of itself because it presences non-Being.”

As the author of Virtual Reality and Terrorism notes,
                   “It is all dark, because the acausal is just a […] term to denote absolute evil and every act of presencing it in the causal realm of necessity, becomes evil.”

Yet even if nihilism is accepted to mean “rejection of prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, and laws, together with a practical hostility toward accepted beliefs and/or established institutions,” then both philosophically and practically the leaderless O9A movement goes beyond the type of nihilism manifest for example in O9A insight roles, in presencing the acausal through sinister deeds, through heretical Occult rites and ceremonies, and through the O9A principle of the authority of individual judgment.

It does so because, as explained elsewhere {3} the raison d’être of the O9A is evident in:
                  “individuals undertaking an often decades-long hermetic anados (ἄνοδος) by which they might discover Lapis Philosophicus and thus acquire wisdom. A practical anados manifest in the O9A Seven Fold Way,”

and in the fact that:
                  “what the Media focus upon and misinterpret – such as alleged culling, insight roles, satanism, alleged neo-nazism, alleged disruption of society, and Occult ceremonial rituals such as those in the O9A Black Book of Satan – are related to only one temporary part of that Seven Fold Way. Which part is that relevant only to an External Adept (stage three of seven) and which part lasts from between a year to around eighteen months after which the individual moves on to other learning experiences.”

Which other learning experiences – beyond the stage of External Adept – involve “numinous experiences” such as the three to six month long rite of Internal Adept where the individual lives alone in the wilderness.

The O9A Adept therefore as a result of their anados presences some-thing – a Reality – which prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, laws, causal abstractions and forms hide or obscure or distort.

Furthermore, the O9A movement has always maintained that the knowing of this Reality is acquired wordlessly, and thus is not only an acausal-knowing but also the result of a pathei mathos – a learning from personal experience, ordeals, and challenges both Occult and practical. {4}

Thus it is perhaps more apt to describe the O9A as representing a post-modernist nihilism.

Insight Roles In Historical And Esoteric Context

Extracts from primary sources such as The Satanic Letters Of Stephen Brown are provided which place O9A Insight Rôles into historical and esoteric context. Which context is of such Rôles being useful and practical learning experiences for someone, Initiate or External Adept, following the O9A Seven Fold Way, and forming only a temporary part of that Seven Fold Way which itself forms part of the sinister dialectic, the Aeonic strategy, of the Order of Nine Angles. Such primary sources are important resources in respect of researching and understanding the O9A.

°°°°°

In its essence, the Order of Nine Angles is, and always has been, anarchic {1}, where a useful, working, definition of anarchy is “that way of living which regards the authority of The State as unnecessary and possibly harmful, and which instead prefers the free and individual choice of mutual and non-hierarchical co-operation”.

This anarchism of ours is evident, for example, in (a) our non-hierarchical, communal, nature and structure; (b) in our disdain for the principles of ‘copyright’ and ‘intellectual property’; (c) in our insistence on internal change and development, where everything ONA “can and should be surpassed, refined, changed, when others discover, experience, and attain knowledge and experience for themselves” {2}; and (d) in our Code of Kindred Honour which places the law of kindred honour over and above the laws of The State.

If there is a ‘secret’ about the O9A, then it is this.
