The O9A, Plato, National Socialism, And Nihilism

It is obvious to those who have studied the O9A corpus from the 1970s to the 2019, 300 page, trilogy titled Seofonfeald Paeth, {1} that the O9A considers National Socialism – both as a political ideology and in practice – to be a useful tool, a means, to be used, via an Insight Role, {2} by individuals who associate themselves with the O9A movement. A tool, a dialectical means, whereby they (i) can in however small a way disrupt the status quo and possibly persuade others to do the same, and (ii) can personally learn from the experience of being a practical, a real-life, modern day heretic, since according to the status quo – that is, according to all current Western governments and educational institutions – National Socialism is the epitome of evil with the myth of the “holocaust” a sacred dogma which should not be challenged, often, in some Western lands, on pain of imprisonment.

As mentioned in the chapter The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A in The Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, the O9A thus consider National Socialism, and all ideologies be they political or religious, as an idea, or ideal, ἰδέᾳ/εἶδος, with Plato’s ἰδέᾳ/εἶδος understood – via Aristotle {3} and others – not as Plato himself believed as an ‘abstract’ (true, ideal) essence or type of being which is independent of us {4} – but as a posited causal abstraction {5} by someone or by some others.

That is, the O9A conceive of National Socialism, and all ideologies be they political or religious, not as an “essence” and not as something “true” or essential or necessary, but as a fallible human abstraction, a technique or tool, a φαντασία, and one which can be usefully used by individuals just as the O9A itself is or can be a φαντασία to be used {6} to achieve a personal and esoteric pathei mathos. {7}

That this O9A view is an expression, a manifestation, a presencing, of nihilism {8} has so far only been understood by a select few is, for the sagacious, the Occult cognoscenti, comment enough on our modern Western societies and their peoples, and comment enough on how the O9A is mis-perceived, especially by those mundanes who call it “neo-nazi” and campaign against it and who demand it be made illegal as a so-called “terrorist” organization. {9}

Meanwhile, our antinomian and sinister-numinous dialectic, our presencing of a type of traditional Satanism {10} – and our Satanic mirth – continues.

{5} The O9A make an ontological distinction between causal and acausal being. A causal abstraction is defined by the O9A as “the manufacture, and use of, some idea, ideal, “image” or category, and thus some generalization, and/or some assignment of an individual or individuals to some group or category. The positing of some “perfect” or “ideal” form, category, or thing, is part of abstraction. Abstractions hide the true nature of Reality – which is both causal and acausal, and which true nature can be apprehended and understood by means of The Dark Arts, and thus by following the Occult way from Initiate, to Adept, and beyond. According to the O9A, the so-called Occult Arts – and especially the so-called Satanism – of others are manifestations of causal abstractions, lacking as they do the learning of the skills of Dark-Empathy, Acausal-Thinking, and Sinister Sorcery, and thus lacking as they do the ability to develope our latent human faculties and our latent sinister character.”

{8} A useful, working, definition of nihilism is “rejection of prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, and laws, together with a practical hostility toward accepted beliefs and/or established institutions.”

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.
