Tyberness: Toward The Abyss
(pdf)

°°°°°°°

This collection of post-2011 Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, ω9α) texts supplements the two volumes Feond and Baeldraca and like those compilations of self-contained recent (post-2011) O9A texts is intended for (i) those who have an interest in learning about an esoteric tradition with roots in Greco-Roman culture, Hellenistic mysticism, and Renaissance Occultism, and/or (ii) those curious about the Occult philosophy and praxis of the O9A, and/or (iii) those who are already associated with the O9A movement and who aspire to, or have already achieved, the O9A grade of Internal Adept on the O9A Seven Fold Way.

The three volumes represent “the last word” on the O9A insofar as its public personae are concerned. For there will be no more public intimations of “the esoteric O9A” way, as befits the move to O9A phase (iteration) 3.

The title – Tyberness – is a variant spelling of the old Anglo-Saxon tiberness, and means “Destruction, Immolation, Sacrifice.”

Book Review: Feond, and Baeldraca

Baeldraca Book

°°°°°°°°°

Feond: Order Of Nine Angles – Toward Internal Adept,
2019, 110 pages, ISBN 978-1687255624

Baeldraca: Order Of Nine Angles,
2019, 105 pages, ISBN 978-1689931953

With the publication in 2019 of two printed books about the O9A – Feond, and Baeldraca – the public profile of the O9A is taken to the “next level”. A level beyond the type of satanism and the neo-nazi occultism that the O9A is, rightly or wrongly, notorious for, and thus beyond the texts contained in much earlier books such as Naos, The Black Book of Satan, and Hostia.

The new books, which compliment each other, contain a selection of post-2012 texts which deal with O9A occultism and traditions, and the knowledge and the understanding expected of the O9A Internal Adept, the stage – on the O9A Seven Fold Way – beyond the early stages of Initiate and External Adept and which early stages books such as Hostia deal with.

Most of the knowledge imparted in the two hundred or so pages of these new books will be unfamiliar to those students of the occult, and to academics, who have concentrated on studying the Qabalah based and “goetic” traditions of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn and of the likes of Mr Aleister Crowley and Michael Aquino. The knowledge will also be unfamiliar to those who follow or who study the modern ‘satanism’ of showman Howard Stanton Levey, better known under his alias of Anton LaVey.

The post-2012 texts will also disappoint those who expect to find ‘satanic rituals’ or heretical diatribes, for when not eruditely informing readers about obscure occult topics – such as sorcery in Virgil’s Aeneid, or the Greek origin of the name Baphomet – the texts deal with esoteric philosophy and how O9A esotericism and methods are related to Hellenic and Hermetic mysticism, to Renaissance alchemy, and to the neglected paganism of a septenary anados or quest. That most of the texts includes copious footnotes containing references to other O9A texts and to works such as the Corpus Hermeticum, will also deter many readers.

In consequence the books are niche products and well express the pagan, classical, Western, notion of καλὸς κἀγαθός which, as texts such as the one titled Appreciating καλὸς κἀγαθός and the O9A in the Feond book describe, could be considered to reveal the type of personal character which it is one of the main aims of the O9A Seven Fold Way to encourage and create.

Which character is the opposite of the egoistic type encouraged by the likes of Crowley, by Levey and by modern practitioners of a Hebrew indebted qabalistic Left Hand Path. A difference that Anton Long and those of the “inner O9A” {1} have pointed out many times before and after 2012. {2}

In regard to satanism and neo-nazism, the text The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A in the Feond book references neglected explanations by “Anton Long” in the early 1990s. Which explanations are that both satanism and neo-nazism are considered to be causal forms, ideas, which could be used to achieve certain Aeonic – “sinister” – goals or which can be useful as Insight Roles, as learning experiences, by the Initiate or the External Adept.
             “To achieve the strategic goals, certain tactics have to be used. This means involvement ‘in the world’ by some individuals/members – for instance, the disruption of society, the creation/manipulation of certain forms.” {3}

To conclude, the books will be useful not only to those, such as students of the occult and academics, who seek to understand the O9A, its traditions and occult roots and how it differs from other modern occult groups and movements, but also to those who have begun their own anados, their own journey, or who are considering making such a journey, along the difficult, the dangerous, O9A Seven Fold Way

{1} The Inner O9A – also known as the Inner ONA – is the exoteric name given to a small group of individuals who were recruited or trained or guided by “Anton Long” and who have achieved the Grade of Internal Adept or (more recently) who follow the O9A Rounwytha tradition. They are all personally known to each other and have an established tradition of meeting every three or so years at a Sunedrion, often at Oxford following the end of Trinity Term.

The short story Sunedrion – A Wyrdful Tale fictionalizes one such Sunedrion, and is available at http://www.o9a.org/wp-content/uploads/o9a-sunedrion-v3.pdf

Appreciating καλὸς κἀγαθός and the O9A
(pdf)

°°°°°°°

Extract:

As the authors of the text Some Questions And Answers About The Order of Nine Angles 2019 write, the Occult movement that is the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A) is

“a means whereby the current Aeon, distorted by the Magian, can be undermined and replaced by a new Aeonic civilization with a new ethos and with a new mythos which presences that ethos. That new ethos is an essentially pagan one evolved from the Greco-Roman and Western notion of καλὸς κἀγαθός, of τὸ καλόν (the beautiful) and τὸ ἀγαθὸν (the honourable) manifest as these are in the O9A Code Of Kindred Honour and in the balancing (ἀρρενόθηλυς) of the masculous and the muliebral via the enantiodromia that is the Seven Fold Way and presenced as that balance is in the Grade Rituals of Internal Adept and of The Abyss.”

Where the ancient Greek term καλὸς-κἀγαθός in the context of the O9A means a certain type of individual; a type of individual well-described in the 122 Year of Fayen text Concerning Culling as Art – an extract from which is given below – and which individual has a particular personal character revealed in and by their behaviour and by the deeds they have done in the real world.

Revealing, and to an extent creating, this type of personal character is one of the main aims of the O9A Seven Fold Way (7FW) with its physical challenges, its difficult and testing Insight Roles, and its Grade Rituals, especially the Grade Rituals of Internal Adept and of The Abyss. All of which were designed to test and to challenge the initiate as well as provide opportunities for both exoteric and esoteric pathei-mathos – πάθει μάθος – just as the Labyrinthos Mythologicus of the O9A was designed to challenge and test aspirant initiates.

Nihilism

°°°°°°°°°


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.

The Two Types Of Satanism

There are basically two types of Satanism: (i) the ‘modern American’ type manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey – better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey – and (ii) the ‘traditional Satanism’ as manifest in the Occult philosophy and the praxis of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) as developed and expounded by the pseudonymous Anton Long.

O9A: The Establishment Orthodoxy

Establishment Orthodoxy About The O9A

pdf version:

O9A: The Establishment Orthodoxy
(pdf)

°°°°°

Text version:

There are three main problems with items about or mentioning the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) published in mainstream Media, by certain anti-fascist groups, and by others.

Problems which the unprecedented reportage of the O9A in 2018 and 2019 have clearly revealed, with items about or mentioning the O9A published (i) in mainstream British newspapers such as The Independent, The Sun, The Guardian, and The Daily Telegraph, (ii) in reports issued by anti-fascist groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and “Hope not hate”, and (iii) in the music section of the newspaper LA Weekly, and on the popular youth-and-music-orientated Quietus website.

§ The first problem is that the reporting is decidedly Old Aeon: decidedly part of the Establishment, of the status quo, with reliance on a dialectic of, a struggle between, conflicting opposites such as “good and evil”, “fascist and anti-fascist”, “nazis and anti-fascists”, “racist and anti-racist”, “Right Hand Path and Left Hand Path”, “Satanist and Christian”, and on clichés such as “we are anti-[this], pro-[that]…”

§ The second problem is that the reporting reflects what has now become the accepted modern orthodoxy, by the Establishment and the Media and by anti-fascist groups, regarding both the O9A and Mr Myatt. Which orthodoxy is the deception that the O9A is a Satanist and a “neo-nazi” group; that Mr Myatt is Anton Long, was the founder and “leader” of the O9A, is a Satanist, is still a neo-nazi, and is still pursuing a subversive or a terrorist agenda by means of the O9A.

Acceptance of or belief in this orthodoxy by journalists, by anti-fascists, and by others, means that journalists, anti-fascists, and others (i) do not bother with providing, or feel it is unnecessary to provide, evidence which has probative value in regard to such orthodox claims and allegations and beliefs about the O9A and about Myatt, and (ii) do not bother with doing, or feel it is unnecessary to do, their own research into the O9A and the life of Myatt, and so do not inform their readers of the necessary wider context, which – in the matter of the O9A – is the “sinister-numinous” esoteric philosophy and methods of the O9A {1}, and which – in the case of Myatt – is his documented post-2010 rejection of extremism {2} and his mystical philosophy of pathei-mathos {3}.

Thus, in respect of O9A esotericism and praxises the wider context is that the O9A is neither Satanist nor neo-nazi but has suggested that those reaching the third stage of the decades-long O9A Seven Fold Way might usefully, as learning experiences and for a year to eighteen months, undertake an Insight Role as a neo-nazi and/or as a ‘satanist’, after which they move to other tasks and other learning experiences such a living alone in the wilderness for between three and six months. {4}

§ The third problem is that those who report on or who write about the O9A often rely on or quote from two forgeries, respectively titled Diablerie and Bealuwes Gast. Both are claimed to have been written by “Anton Long”, are purported to be autobiographical; are assumed to document the hidden O9A aspects of Myatt’s life, and thus are regarded as “proof” that Myatt=Long.

However, both Diablerie and Bealuwes Gast have been described by Myatt as forgeries {5}. In addition, as mentioned in A Skeptic Reviews Diablerie the “evil deeds” that are described
                  “are lame or laughable or sound like the adventures of a frat boy” {6}

with the text containing
                  “clipped sentences of the type often found in first-person ‘action’ novels or comic strips of the Dick Tracey type. It is as if Diablerie is pulp fiction, a first-person narrative of fictional anti-hero and evil Satanist, Anton Long, with – and importantly – some quotes from the writings of the real person who the author wants people to believe is the inspiration for his fictional Anton Long. Quotes inserted as ‘background’ for credibility.”

As described in Bealuwes Gast: A Study in Forgery, the writer of Bealuwes Gast
                  “egoistically boasts that “he does not care,” that he has “exulted in life” and that he is “a nasty piece of work,” all of which statements and sentiments are profoundly at odds with everything Myatt has written post-2006, and in many of which writings he expresses remorse for his decades of extremism […]
                  The sinister sections – detailing Anton Long’s experiences and “exulting in life” as a sorcerer – are rather contrived, fanciful, and unconvincing, not to say more suited to a work of fiction.” {7}

The author of Bealuwes Gast: A Study in Forgery then goes on to describe the errors made by the forger.

In addition, as noted in a little-known and humorous O9A text published in 2015:
                  “Diablerie, like the role of ‘outer representative’, was part of that Sinister Game which we played for several decades. Diablerie was a work of fiction written by a certain friend of mine, and contained some (not many but just enough) facts, and designed as it was to not only create a certain mythos, a certain mystique, but also to test, confuse, mislead, entice, and perhaps inspire a few individuals to do their own primary scholarly research and so discover the truth.” A Most Brief Discourse On The History Of The Order of Nine Angles {8}

The ponderous sub-title and the Preface of A Most Brief Discourse On The History Of The Order of Nine Angles are a homage to John Dee’s A True & Faithful Relation of what Passed for Many Yeers Between Dr. John Dee and Some Spirits published in 1659 by Meric Casaubon.

The Preface of A Most Brief Discourse, complete with archaic spelling and archaic capitalization and relevant as it is to understanding what part of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus means, is:
                  “What is here presented might well be deemed and termed A Work of Darknesse. A work by some gladly believed; by others an entertainment; because it is very possible that every Reader will make of it what they will. For the World is full of imposture. Yet there was a Time when sorcery was the delight of many mortals, and many and various Divels were believed in and when things impossible to ordinary sense were believed done by Nature.
                  Finally, if there were any such thing really as Divels then surely they would appear to such as did call upon them as a Mythos and a Mysterium Esoteric even to this day. I read over the transcript exactly and taking note of the most remarkable passages (as they appeared unto me) I present them here for Anton Long was indeed a myth maker, the best sort of Sorcerer.”

That journalists, anti-fascists, some academics, and others have assumed that both Diablerie and Bealuwes Gast are genuine manuscripts written by Myatt proves (i) the efficacy of the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and (ii) that such people have not undertaken “their own primary scholarly research” into both the O9A and the life of Myatt, and (iii) that they have accepted or believe in the prevailing Establishment and Media orthodoxy regarding the O9A and Myatt.

§ The fourth problem, deriving from the previous three, is that those who report on the O9A and who write about Myatt do so in ignorance of the facts and thus present a prejudiced, a biased, view of the O9A and Myatt. A biased view which in the case of politically active anti-fascist groups is propagandistic and often deliberately biased, driving as such bias often does from an irrational dislike or a hatred of those deemed to be their “enemies”, in this case the O9A and/or Myatt. A prejudice and a hatred enshrined in the anti-fascist motto “Never Forget, Never Forgive, Never Again”.

Thus do such anti-fascists invent and propagate rumours and hearsay, and make malicious unproven allegations about those deemed to be their enemies {9}. And thus do they make derogatory remarks about or try to demean those deemed to be their enemies, while hypocritically asserting that they champion “hope” not “hate”.

Thus do they also unknowingly or knowingly make use of forgeries, and fabricate “evidence”, such as misattribute quotations, and claim without providing evidence from primary sources that a certain person said or wrote “this” or “that”. {10}

Thus do they make assumptions and claims – without providing evidence from primary sources – about who is behind pseudonyms such as “Anton Long” and “dark logos”, and thus do they commit fallacies such as (i) Incomplete Evidence, where evidence which does not support their opinion or their view or their claims or their propaganda is omitted, (ii) consensus gentium, stating that since many people believe a thing it must be true, (iii) illicit transference, when for example they argue from the particular to the general, (iv) argumentum ad personam, where they appeal to the personal likes and prejudices of people, (v) appeal to authority, where they reference the opinion of someone regarded by them as an “expert”, and (vi) ignoratio elenchi, where an irrelevant or personal topic is introduced in order to distract attention, the most popular form of which is argumentum ad hominem where claims or allegations are made about a person or a group, or where they make derogatory or abusive remarks about or try to demean a person or a group.

Thus do they – in a classic example of argumentum ad hominem – speculate about the “motives” and the character of those involved with the O9A, and thus do they – in classic examples of presumption, bias and partiality – write such things as “it’s hard to take anything Myatt says at face value, so successfully has he enshrouded himself in self-contradictory disinformation”, {11} and that many of those they allege are involved with the O9A “are deceptive and manipulative so that what they say or write cannot be trusted”.

Conclusion

Such problems are not unique to those who report on or who mention the O9A and Myatt. Rather, they are indicative of two things.

§ First, they are indicative of the nature – the physis, the character, the being – of many individuals in the modern world. A human nature apparently unchanged in so many despite (i) the advantages in all Western lands of State sponsored primary and secondary education for children and young people, and the advantages afforded by tertiary education, and (ii) the existence of libraries (such as The Bodleian. The British Library, The Library of Congress) and the accessibility of many primary sources together with a scholarly tradition dating back over a thousand years.

For the character that is so indicated is one or more of the following: of an acceptance of a contemporary orthodoxy; of adhering to an ideology and placing that ideology before facts personally discovered; of believing what some ideologue or demagogue states is “fact” or “truth”; of being superficial, populist, unscholarly, quick to judge, opinionated, presumptive, and prejudiced.

§ Second, they are indicative of the nature – the physis, the character, the being – of most modern Media, from printed newspapers, to “social media”, to printed and digital reports and television “documentaries” produced for political or idealogical or propaganda purposes or which reflect contemporary orthodoxy about a subject, a person, or a group.

The nature of which Media is often superficial, populist, unscholarly, quick to judge, opinionated, presumptive, prejudiced, with a tendency or a need to sensationalize certain stories or events and stereotype certain individuals.

            We know and we understand that our efforts, in items such as this, to document or to draw attention to the flaws in most reportage of the O9A and of Myatt will not affect most of those who because of such flawed reportage accept the modern orthodoxy about the O9A and about Myatt and which orthodoxy is embedded in and reinforced and added to by such reportage.

We also know and accept that politically active anti-fascist groups and individuals will continue with their often prejudiced and often hateful propaganda against “us” because they deem us to be their “enemies”, just as they will continue to try to denigrate and smear us, and continue to try and agitate for the authorities (the police and the intelligence services) to immediately investigate “us” {12} for so-called “hate speech” and for “encouraging” acts of terrorism {13} with a view to the O9A being proscribed as a “terrorist” organization, with its literature banned, and with those deemed to be its “leaders” or “members” imprisoned. {14}

Such causal, Old Aeon, shenanigans by such Old Aeon individuals aside, we know and understand that such reportage and such activities to suppress the heretical dissent of our sub-culture has engendered in a few individuals, and only in a few individuals, a desire to undertake a detailed study of O9A works with a view to discovering for themselves the true nature – the physis – of O9A esotericism; a physis evident in the term the sinister-numinous tradition, with that tradition founded on and re-presenting in a modern way an ancient Greco-Roman pagan and hermetic mysticism {1}.

Such causal, Old Aeon, shenanigans have also engendered in a minority of those few individuals a desire to undertake a study of David Myatt’s life and works with a view to discovering for themselves his Aeonic legacy {15}.

Which is reason enough for us, and for the Occult cognoscenti who like us possess an Aeonic perspective, to amusingly smile at those who have designated Myatt and us and the O9A as their enemies.

{9} One of the malicious allegations of a certain anti-fascist group in respect of the O9A is their attempt to link the O9A to paedophilia and to the promotion of misogyny and rape.

As so-called “evidence” of paedophilia they cite the case of two members of a neo-nazi group convicted of paedophilia, claim that group is linked to the O9A, and then in a classic case of the fallacy of illicit transference use those two examples to besmirch the O9A, despite the fact that O9A literature clearly states that
             “individuals of certain proclivities, involving children, are regarded by us as dishonourable individuals who most certainly are not of our kind.” Source: https://wyrdsister.files.wordpress.com/2019/06/o9a-and-children-v2.pdf

Similarly in respect of their smear regarding misogyny and rape, for they quote some things written by a few individuals claiming to be neo-nazis, again generalize from such examples, and neglect to mention that the O9A has and always has had Sapphic nexions, has published a Sapphic novel – Breaking The Silence Down – and has, according to an academic:
             “more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.” Source: J.R Lewis, Satanic Attitudes, in Asbjorn Dyrendal, James R. Lewis, Jesper A. Petersen (editors), The Invention of Satanism, Oxford University Press, 2015. p.191, pp.194–196.

In addition, the O9A Code of Kindred Honour, one of the foundations of O9A esoteric philosophy, enshrines gender equality.

In respect of rape, O9A literature clearly states that rapists are suitable candidates for culling. See, for example, https://wyrdsister.files.wordpress.com/2018/10/culling-o9a-code-v3.pdf which describes a real-life incident.

Thus, such attempts to besmirch the O9A, and the failure of anti-fascists and others to quote relevant O9A texts, are sufficient to reveal just how hateful, deceitful, duplicitous, and hypocritical such anti-fascists are.

{14} That the O9A has no “leader” and no “members” and is not an organization but rather is an Occult sub-culture or movement (or an “idea” and a mythos) is never mentioned by those who report on or who write about the O9A. Neither does such a reality form part of the modern orthodoxy about the O9A.
