[ Originally posted at: The Perception Of The O9A – Wyrdsisters ]

 

It is interesting and informative, when considered esoterically and in Aeonic terms, how the perception of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, ω9α) and the propaganda directed against it, has changed over the past three decades.

Anti-O9A Propaganda

Decades ago, and until quite recently, the O9A was perceived by outsiders as just “a minor satanic organization” {1} with most anti-O9A propaganda the preserve of self-described satanists who believed in or who followed the egoist ‘satanism’ propagated by Howard Stanton Levey whose aliases included Anton LaVey. This propaganda was spread mostly by means of the medium of the Internet but also in a few books by academics who did not bother to do their own research by studying the O9A corpus, written between 1976 and 2012 by Anton Long, and which academics believed what such Levey-type ‘satanists’ said or wrote about the O9A. This propagandistic image was: (i) of the O9A as not being a true/genuine satanic organization or being  just one or two people, (ii) their belief that Anton Long was David Myatt, for which belief they never presented anything probative, (iii) of the O9A as neo-nazi and promoting nazism, and (iv) of the O9A as unoriginal having plagiarized Crowley, the Church of Satan, Lovecraft, the Temple of Set, and others, with the O9A seven fold Tree of Wyrd just “a replacement for the Kabbalah […] a non-Semitic version of the Kabbalistic Sepherot.”

By 2018 this type of anti-O9A propagated had all but ceased, although it continued to be propagated in books written by academics who still had not bothered to do their own research by studying the O9A corpus and – to give just one example – thus finding the link between the O9A seven fold Tree of Wyrd and the septenary system of both the ancient Pymander tractate of the Corpus Hermeticum and of several Renaissance alchemical texts, from which alchemical texts the O9A (that is, Anton Long) derived their “nine angles” which are the nine combinations of the three basic substances  alchemical Salt, alchemical Mercury, and alchemical Sulphur.

Septenary System, and the three basic alchemical substances

, published in 1613 CE

Part of the reason for the demise of the old anti-O9A propaganda was that interest in and membership of both the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set had declined. However, the main reason for the demise of such anti-O9A propaganda was its replacement by the much more widely spread and much more rabid propaganda of anti-fascists, and which new anti-O9A propaganda led not only calls for the O9A to be banned by Western governments because anti-fascists declared the O9A incited hatred, violence, and terrorism, but also led to the O9A being described as “the most extreme far-Right network in the world,” {2} and as “the most dangerous far-right terror movement operating in the world today,” {3} with the chief propagandist behind the anti-fascist campaign declaring, only a few weeks ago following the banning of a neo-nazi group by the British government, that “the government has missed an opportunity to take action against the dangerous Order of Nine Angles….. the Government must take the threat of O9A more seriously and urgently get a ban in place.” {4}

Unsurprisingly, the anti-fascist campaign consisted of lies, and – like the old anti-O9A propaganda of self-described satanists – the people behind the new campaign not only continued with the trope that “Anton Long is David Myatt” but also just like those satanists did not provide and still have not provided anything probative, any evidence, for their claim that Myatt=Long, committing as most of them do the fallacies of argumentum ad populum – because so many believe it it must be true – and argumentum ad verecundiam, that because some academics have also claimed, in books, that Myatt=Long it is true.

Also unsurprisingly, the anti-fascist campaign had fellow-travellers in Britain and elsewhere – including journalists, politicians, teachers, and academics – who spread this new anti-O9A propaganda in the British Parliament, in books, in the mainstream Media, by the medium of the Internet and more recently by “social media” and “podcasts” with one elected politician in America – Elissa Slotkin, a former CIA analyst who currently oversees a U.S. House subcommittee on intelligence and counterterrorism – demanding that the United States government designate the Order of Nine Angles a Foreign Terrorist Organization. {5}

To add spice to their anti-O9A propaganda, anti-fascists used a tactic of the gutter press and hack-journalists to discredit, to smear, people: making sensationalist claims of paedophilia and rape. Thus anti-fascists accused the O9A of encouraging and condoning rape and paedophilia by claiming that around a dozen people who they allege were “linked to” or who they allege were “members of” the O9A have been convicted of crimes of a sexual nature.

It is astonishing that journalists and politicians and so many other people believed and believe, and have repeated and publicized, these sensationalist claims, such allegations, since (i) the claims were and are based on the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter – arguing from particular to general, blaming a whole group, movement, or organization for the actions of a few – and (ii) no evidence, nothing probative, is provided and never has been provided by those making such claims in respect of how those they name were “linked to” the O9A, and (iii) no evidence, nothing probative, is provided and never has been provided by those making such claims in respect of those they name as having been “members” of the O9A, and (iv) there is no text in the whole O9A corpus (that is, in the 1976-2012 writings of Anton Long) which support or condone rape and paedophilia, but there are published writings – such as the novella titled The Giving {6} – which suggest that those who indulge in such practices make suitable opfers.

Furthermore, what does being “linked to” the O9A mean? What does being a “member of” the O9A mean and imply? What does ω9α, the O9A, the ONA – the Order of Nine Angles – mean and imply? What is the O9A? A group, an organization, a cult, with members? Or is the O9A a sub-culture which some individuals identify with? Or is the O9A an Occult philosophy which some individuals agree with or which inspires them? Or is ω9α an Occult praxis, or even a way of life such as the Way of the Rounwytha?

Such simple and necessary questions are never asked by those who believe and those who repeat such anti-fascist claims. Why not?

Our Answers

As individuals who have studied the O9A corpus over a period of years and who years ago embarked on the modern quest for Lapis Philosophicus that is the O9A Seven Fold Way {7} our answers to those fundamental questions are as follows:

° The O9A – esoterically, and among ourselves, known as ω9α – is an Occult philosophy (a mystic tradition) described by Anton Long in the O9A corpus which he wrote between 1976 and 2012. This philosophy is a pagan one, encompassing the rural Rounwytha tradition, and suggests an individual and decades-long praxis – the Seven Fold Way – by means of which an individual can achieve Adeptship (individuation) and thence discover Lapis Philosophicus, and which praxis is thus a quest, a pathei-mathos, which can lead to wisdom involving as it does a learning from ordeals and from practical experience.

The roots of this modern syncretic philosophy are in the paganism of Ancient Greece and pre-Christian Britannia and in Hellenic hermeticism.

° As an Occult philosophy, presenced in such an individual praxis, the O9A is not an organization or group which has a leader, a hierarchy of authority, or members. Instead, “members” were defined by Anton Long in a letter to “Kimberly” dated 25th September 1992 eh, and included in facsimile in volume II of The Satanic Letters of Stephen Brown,

“Being a member of the ONA simply means that the individual follows, or tries to follow, the path to Adeptship as outlined in various works including Naos.” {8}

° The Occult philosophy of the O9A is, in these modern times, considered to be antinomian: that is, and for an individual, transgressive and heretical, and in practice can be a Katharsis and – given its principle of the authority of individual judgment {9} – perceived as anarchic and/or as nihilistic, although the individual following the praxis that is the Seven Fold Way learns to go beyond both denotata and the dialectic of conflicting opposites based as that dialectic is on human manufactured categories, -isms and -ologies.

° The O9A can therefore be understood as both an anarchic/nihilist/antinomian sub-culture which, or aspects of which, some individuals identify with, and as a way of living and which way is manifest in both the Rounwytha and the Occult quest that is the Seven Fold Way.

° The O9A – ω9α philosophy – is therefore neither neo-nazi nor satanist although individuals following the Seven Fold Way or who identify with some antinomian aspects of O9A sub-culture may use one or both those -isms as learning experiences and/or as a means of being transgressive and heretical and thus may be perceived by unknowledgable outsiders as “satanists” and/or as “neo-nazis” and also be incorrectly perceived by such unknowledgable outsiders as being “linked to” or as “members” of some non-existent group/organization they believe is named the Order of Nine Angles, the Order of the Nine Angles, or the O9A.

The Reasons For Anti-O9A Propaganda

Why the four-year long and, as of 2021, on-going, strident, intense, hateful anti-fascist campaign of lies, smears, innuendo and propaganda directed at the O9A and at the person anti-fascists claim founded and still leads a group, an organization, named the Order of Nine Angles?

A campaign which includes the demand that the Order of Nine Angles be banned by Western governments because it is a “terrorist” entity and a “dangerous neo-nazi” organization which incites “hatred, violence, murder” and because, in the words of Faye Stephen, a Special Agent of the United States Air Force assigned to the Federal Bureau of Investigation New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, the O9A are:

“supporters of, among other things, jihadist terrorism,” and which O9A is “a Satanic anarchist group founded in the United Kingdom and now operating around the world, including in the United States [and which] has expressed, among other [things], Satanic, anarchist, neo-fascist, neo-Nazi, and anti-Semitic beliefs [and] support for the views of Usama bin Laden,” whose members and associates believe “that since the time of Nazi Germany, Western civilization has become perverted by, among other things, Judeo-Christian beliefs. They therefore seek the violent overthrow [of] Western civilization.” {10}

After several years of considering the matter and of studying the anti-fascist propaganda campaign and its materials, our view as O9A-folk is that there were two phases involved in the four-year long, on-going, anti-fascist campaign against the O9A.

The first phase was and is the anti-fascist campaign itself – the invented lies, the false claims, the smears, the spreading of rumours, the fallacies used and indulged in either deliberating or otherwise. That is, there was a fabrication of a perception of the O9A far removed from the reality of the O9A: in brief, the fabrication of a fictional O9A: demonizing the O9A and those alleged to be associated with or involved with it.

The second phase, completed over a year ago, was convincing enough people – including journalists, politicians, government and police officials, and certain NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) such as the Institute for Strategic Dialogue  {11} and the Counter Extremism Project {12} – that the anti-fascist  fabricated, fictional, O9A is “the truth”.

In our view, the anti-fascists who fabricated their own “evil, dangerous” version of the O9A – and who spread the lies, false claims and smears involved, are “unreasonable and unjust in their seasons of excitement” so that they often speak or write emotively, make hasty judgements, and are intolerant because they are convinced they and their cause are right and that their enemies are not just wrong or misguided but “evil” and therefore must be opposed and their views censored and suppressed.

Which is why they have and had slogans such as “No platform for our opponents,” “Never forgive, never forget,” and “the Holocaust cannot be questioned or doubted,” and why they have fabricated causal abstractions – categories, new transgressions – to describe and label their opponents and the writings, deeds, and speech of their opponents, and campaign to have those deemed to belong to such categories, or who may have committed such transgressions, publicly shamed, deprived of their livelihood, arrested, and imprisoned.

Such new causal abstractions, such new transgressions, such modern heresies, include believing in or affirming the inequality of human races, wanting to live among people of their own race and culture, “hate speech”, “racism”, questioning or doubting holocaustianity (13} – “holocaust denial” – questioning or doubting “nazi crimes”, and believing that fascism and/or National Socialism contained or may have contained some good ideas.

This demonizing of enemies, this fabrication of abstractions, this desire to censor and suppress the views of their enemies, is redolent of the Magian ethos and its penchant for denouncing and persecuting those deemed, by some authority or by some person or persons, to be heretics, and it is no coincidence that the modern manifestation of the Magian ethos that is the anti-fascist movement is derived from Marxist-Leninism and the violent, hate-fuelled, intolerant religious-type and often communist resistance to the rise of fascism and National-Socialism. {14}

Given the Magian ethos, it is also no coincidence that the anti-fascists who fabricated their own “evil, dangerous” version of the O9A – and their fellow-travellers who spread and who are spreading that fictional version of the O9A, are mostly hypocrites: intolerant of and biased toward those persons or causes or groups they deem to be their enemies while at the same time preaching about tolerance, equality, and about the need to be fair-minded. It is this intolerance, this bias, which makes them propagate the fictional anti-fascist version of the O9A and also makes them not bother with their own scholarly – detailed, unbiased – research about the O9A since, for them, anti-fascist propaganda, rumours, and some out-of-context or manufactured or wrongly attributed quotations will usually suffice.

Yet – as our esoteric, Aeonic, ω9α, perspective informs us – the anti-fascist movement of our times, with its Magian ethos, its hypocrites, its righteous believers, its fakers, its hatred and intolerance, will no doubt change, evolve, and in the not too distant future will cease to exist. Just like another modern manifestation of the Magian ethos, the Soviet Union, ceased to exist despite its repression and fabricated abstractions and despite its persecution of those who were, in every-way but name, heretics. Similarly, older manifestations of the Magian ethos such as Judeo-Christianity, changed, evolved, manifested multiple new forms, and has even begun to manifest a certain tolerance as it declines toward its inevitable death about two hundred years from now.

Our esoteric, Aeonic, ω9α, perspective also informs us that, as Rachael Stirling recently wrote:

“In a century, all current anti-O9A propagandists will be dead, just as a government which may have passed some law banning some mythic, phantom, non-existent, group they named as the O9A, will be different, changed, if such governments and such countries as they governed – such causal constructs – will still exist a century from now.

But the presencing of the acausal that is currently known and named as “the O9A”, as “the order of nine angles”, as “the order of the nine angles” will still exist, be it under those denotata or some other denotata, and be it an evolution, by some of those who presence it, of what is now known under such names […]

So we who adhere to, who now represent, the resurgence of the hermetic ancient way to Lapis Philosophicus currently known under such a denotatum as the O9A, smile in our pagan knowing way at the causal machinations and propaganda and lies and polemics of zealous anti-O9A propagandists and their followers.” {15}

The Perception Of The O9A


The Apolitical Deofel Quartet

Posted: October 13th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Deofel Quartet, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Apolitical Deofel Quartet

°°°°°°°°°

Those who have studied O9A esotericism in detail, and those who have an intuitive or artistic appreciation of the Sinister-Numinous aesthetic of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), know that the O9A in essence is apolitical, regarding all political forms and all political ideologies as causal abstractions, some of which forms may be useful for a while as exeatic learning experiences Рas Insight R̫les Рfor some individuals in the early years of their decades-long journey along the O9A Seven Fold Way. But all of which causal abstractions Рfrom politics, to religions, to sociological and psychological theories and posited archetypes Рare surpassed, left behind, understood as irrelevant Рwhen the individual undertakes and successfully emerges from the ordeal of The Abyss.

Which ordeal reveals The Unity, the affective acausality, beyond the illusive, the mundane, dialectic of opposing opposites; an illusive dialectic exemplified by “choosing sides” such as, in terms of political abstractions, “Left Wing” and “Right Wing”.

Those conversant with O9A esotericism will know that the novels of the O9A Deofel Quartet (written between the 1970s and the early 1990s) present

{quote}
                  “much of the diverse aural traditions as AL [Anton Long] received them: as stories about people, their interactions; their ‘satanic’ or esoteric views and beliefs; and about certain events that involved those people. In The Deofel Quartet he simply reworked the factual material – as writers of fiction are wont to do – in order to make an interesting story, in the process obscuring the identities of those involved and sometimes their place of residence or work; added some entertaining details (as in the ‘astral battles’ between goodies and baddies in Falcifer, of a kind now familiar – decades later – from the Harry Potter stories) and concatenated certain events in order to provide ‘action’ in a limited time-frame.
                  Thus, the fictional stories not only compliment other O9A material but provide a ‘different way into’ the complex O9A mythos; a way that many will find more interesting (and certainly more entertaining) than thousands of pages of sometimes polemical and sometimes ponderous O9A factual texts, and a way that especially places the O9A’s satanism into perspective, Aeonically and otherwise.”
{/quote}

None of the novels of the Quartet concern politics. None of them deal with political revolution or concern themselves with “terrorism”. None of them concern “neo-nazism”. None of them involve “racism” or are “anti-gay” or misogynistic. In truth, the novels – ahead of their time – contain strong female characters (such as Fiona in The Greyling Owl, and Lianna in The Giving) as well as positive gay characters (such as Fenton in The Greyling Owl).

To understand the O9A is to understand how and why The Deofel Quartet presences O9A esotericism: as involving real individuals some of whom (as in Falcifer) may have an interest in Satanism and the Occult, and some of whom (as in The Greyling Owl) are not interested in, or appear not to be interested in, Satanism and the Occult. As readers of such works as Falcifer and The Giving and The Temple of Satan discover, esoterically the O9A is far beyond even the causal abstraction, the causal form, termed “Satanism”.

Thus, as described in The Temple Of Satan,

{quote}
                  “All of [the books], and the manuscripts bound like books, were about alchemy, magick or the Occult. He could read the Latin of the medieval manuscripts and books, but what they related did not interest him as the later books brought forth no desire to read further.
                  Even the Black Book of Satan, resting on the table, seemed irrelevant to him. They were all compilations of shadow words, appearing to Thurstan to fall short of the aim that the searchers who had written them should have aimed for. His instinctive feeling was to observe in a contemplative way some facet of the cosmos – to stand outside in the dark of the night and listen for the faint music that travelled down to Earth from the stars – rather the enclose himself in the warm womb of a house to read the writings of others. Demons, spells, hidden powers, the changing of base metal to gold, even the promises of power and change for himself, were not important to Thurstan, and he left the library with its stored knowledge and forbidden secrets and lurking gods, to walk in the moonlit garden.
                  The stars were not singing for him – or he could not hear them above the turmoil of his thought…
                  He moved, like an old man pained by his limbs, through the cold and sometimes swirling mist along a path that took him toward the Mynd and up, steeply, to its level summit where he stood, high above the mist, to watch the mist-clotted valleys below.
                  The heather was beginning to show the glory of its colour, and he walked through it northbound along the cracked and stony road stopping often to turn around and wait. But no one and nothing came to him – no voices, song or sigh […]
                  The very Earth itself seemed to be whispering to him the words of this truth. He began to sense, slowly, that there was for him real magick here where moorland fell to form deep hollows home to those daughters of Earth known as springs and streams, and where the Neolithic pathway had heard perhaps ten million stories. No wisps of clouds came to spoil the glory of the sun as it rose over the mottled wavy hills beyond the Stretton valley miles distant and below. No noise to break the almost sacred silence heard. For an instant it seemed as if some divinity, strange but pure, came into the world, and smiled.”
{/quote}

Thus, The Greyling Owl deals

{quote}
                  “with a type of ‘hidden sinister sorcery’ that owes little or nothing to what has become accepted as ‘the Western occult tradition’, satanic or otherwise, with its demons, its invocations and evocations, its rituals, and people dressing up in robes. Instead, it concerns someone being manipulated, brought into a position of influence, without even knowing or suspecting there is an occult aspect; someone – in modern parlance – being ‘groomed’ to at some future time use that influence for a sinister purpose as directed by the person or persons to whom he is now indebted.
                  That is, there is a revealing of how the O9A often operates, and has operated, in the real world; and how O9A people are often secretive, with their occult connections, and their interest in the sinister, unknown to colleagues and friends. The title itself gives a clue, for the word greyling is used in reference to Hipparchia Semele (commonly referred to as the Grayling), a type of butterfly found in Britain and one which is ‘a master of disguise and can mysteriously disappear as soon as it lands, perfectly camouflaged’. Hence the title seems to, esoterically, suggest the pairing of the ‘mistress of disguise’ (Fiona) with ‘the owl’ (Mickleman) and which working together will enable sinister deeds to be done, most possibly by Mickleman (under the guidance of Fiona) influencing or recruiting people from within his natural academic environment.”
{/quote}

Thus, the following paean to Sapphic love, from Breaking The Silence Down, the novel often considered as making the Deofel ‘quartet’ into a quintet of esoteric novels:

{quote}
                  “Blissful, they returned to their home. The rain ceased with their arrival and in the subdued light in the now cramped sitting room of their bungalow, Rachael sat at her piano to transform herself and the night. Diane listened and watched, entranced. Rachael’s playing created a new world and a new woman, and Diane watched this strange woman create from the instrument of wood, steel and tone a universe of beauty, ecstasy and light.
                  Bach, Beethoven – it made no difference what or for how long she played. But, as it always had since that night, Beethoven’s Opus 111 fascinated her with feelings, visions, and stupendous, world-creating thought. It imbued her with insight, and a love that wanted to envelope Rachael and consume her.
                  It was pleasure and pain to watch Rachael transform herself through the act of her playing into a goddess she would die for. No reason touched her while she listened. There was, she knew, no greater life than this, no greater feeling and she wanted to immolate herself with Rachael’s ecstasy, immolate world upon world with this glory and passion which no male god described.
                  Then the silence, while clamoured notes faded and dimmed light framed. There were no more tears Diane could cry and she waited while Rachael slowly rose and offered her hand. She – the goddess within – was smiling and Diane allowed herself to be led. The music in her head, the memories and secret dreams of youth: all were before her, embodied in flesh and she had only to kiss the slightly scented lips or see the secret wisdom hidden in the eyes to reach the summit of her life, slowly, in the dim corners of the bedroom’s reflected dark.”
{/quote}

Given that most O9A critics have never bothered to read the O9A “deofel quintet” – or, if they have, have miserably failed to appreciate its esoteric significance – it is not surprising that they have such a biased, mundane, view of the O9A.

O9A: Deofel Quintet Analysis

Posted: July 7th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on O9A: Deofel Quintet Analysis

°°°°°°°°°

The O9A Deofel Quintet
(pdf)

°°°

Extract:

The O9A Deofel Quintet consists of the following novels:

§ Falcifer
§ The Temple Of Satan
§ The Greyling Owl
§ The Giving
§ Breaking The Silence Down

The Quintet – the Deofel Quartet plus the novel Breaking The Silence Down – amounts to almost 600 pages and is a neglected aspect of O9A occultism. For attention hitherto – especially in mainstream Media, by self-described modern ‘satanists’, by academics, and by self-described ‘anti-fascists’ – has focused on the alleged neo-nazi and satanist aspects of O9A occultism, with what the O9A means by satanism either ignored or misunderstood.

The Deofel Quintet {1} places the neo-nazism and the satanism aspects into the necessary esoteric perspective, for the novels of the Deofel Quintet are non-political with the overt satanism of such works as Falcifer and The Temple of Satan expressing the place of satanism in O9A tradition: which is that it is a short-lived and personal learning experience, germane to the early stages, the first few years, of the anados (ἄνοδος), the decades-long hermetic quest, for Lapis Philosophicus. An anados manifest in O9A hermeticism by the sinister-numinous Seven Fold Way.

In this perspective, both Falcifer and The Temple of Satan are concerned with initiate type learning experiences: gaining esoteric knowledge, participating in ceremonial overtly ‘satanic’ rituals, and experiencing the part of the satanic ethos that concerns personal pride and personal pleasure. But they also deal with how personal emotion – especially love – affects them, can complicate their lives, as well as offering them opportunities to learn and advance further in their anados.

Which advancement is the concern of The Greyling Owl, of The Giving, and of Breaking The Silence Down.

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 […]

The O9A Deofel Quartet

°°°°°°°°°

The Deofel Quartet present much of the diverse aural traditions of the Order of Nine Angles as Anton Long received them: as stories about people, their interactions; their ‘satanic’ or esoteric views and beliefs; and about certain events that involved those people. In The Deofel Quartet he simply reworked the factual material – as writers of fiction are wont to do – in order to make an interesting story, in the process obscuring the identities of those involved and sometimes their place of residence or work; added some entertaining details (as in the ‘astral battles’ of a kind now familiar – decades later – from the Harry Potter stories) and concatenated certain events in order to provide ‘action’ in a limited time-frame.

Thus, the fictional stories not only compliment other O9A material but provide a ‘different way into’ the complex O9A mythos; a way that many will find more interesting (and certainly more entertaining) than thousands of pages of sometimes polemical and sometimes ponderous O9A factual texts, and a way that especially places the O9A’s satanism into perspective, Aeonically and otherwise.

The Quartet was written by Anton Long with the stories originally read out from handwritten manuscripts at Temple/nexion meetings of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A) in the decades of the 1970s and 1980s. These meetings were never large – sometimes only a few people, occasionally a dozen or less – and were always held in intimate and candle-lit surroundings.

Following the expansion of the O9A in the late 1980s resulting from O9A articles being published in occult zines such as Nox, the original handwritten manuscripts (most with handwritten corrections or alterations) were, in the early 1990s typed out on manual typewriters by various people.

The O9A Aesthetic (pdf)

A collection of some extracts from articles which deal with the sinister-numinous aesthetic of the Order of Nine Angles. As the extracts reveal, significant manifestations of this aesthetic occur in the Occult fiction of the Order of Nine Angles, that still rather neglected aspect of ONA Occult culture.

For their Occult fiction not only reveals and explains the unique sinister-numinous aesthetic of the O9A, but also provides:

“a different way into the complex O9A mythos; a way that many will find more interesting (and certainly more entertaining) than thousands of pages of sometimes polemical and sometimes ponderous O9A factual texts, and a way that especially places the O9A’s satanism into perspective, Aeonically and otherwise.”

Other manifestations of the aesthetic are O9A specific archetypes, The Art Of The Insight Role, and Sinister Chant.
