°°°°°°°°°

Republished here are some items concerning the “nine angles” and/or which place the term “nine angles” into the correct esoteric perspective.

The first item – whose full title is Notes Concerning The Term Nine Angles As Used By The Occult Group The Order of Nine Angles – is in four parts and was issued in 2013 ev. Part One is an extract from a September 2013 ev debate on an Occult internet forum. Part Two contains three screen-shots from a 2011 ev debate between Aquino, of the Temple of Set, and a person associated with the Order of Nine Angles. Part Three is an extract from Myatt’s commentary on the Greek text of the Divine Pymander, a text dating from the second/third century CE . Part Four is an extract from A Glossary of ONA Terms, v.3.07.

The second item – More Notes On The Nine Angles – is the most recent (2018 ev) and places the screenshots of Part Two of the first item into context, containing as it does further extracts from that 2011 ev thread on an Occult forum.

The third and the fourth items are parts one and two of Concerning The Meaning of The Nine Angles: A Collection of Texts, issued in 120 yf and 121 yf respectively, that is in 2009 ev and 2010 ev. Part One consists of a polemic text (Ingrowing Angles, or How Not to Name Thee Nine Angles Thingy, written in 2009 ev) and two esoteric texts, The Order of Nine Angles in Historical, and Esoteric, Context, and The Nine Angles – Just One More Causal Symbology. Part Two consists of one esoteric text, The Nine Angles – Beyond The Causal Continuum, issued in 121 yf, and concerns the “angles” as causal-acausal “dimensions”, which differ from causal dimensions in that they are “alchemical” and thus presence or can presence Life.

The fifth item, The Five-Dimensional Sorcery of the Seventh Way, written in 116 yf (2005 ev) concerns the nine angles in the context of sorcery.

The sixth item, Debunking The Chaos: Sorcery and the Esoteric Nature of The Acausal, written in 122 yf, concerns sorcery as a living alchemy, and is a companion to the fifth item.

The seventh item, The Star Game: Further Notes Regarding The Esoteric Form, written in 121 yf, provides some practical notes regarding constructing and playing The Star Game.

            The items thus reveal how the “nine angles” can be understood both exoterically and esoterically, as well as how they can be understood both in terms of practical sorcery (such as The Star Game, or the various forms of the Rite Of Nine Angles) and in terms of the esoteric philosophy of the O9A.

However, as noted in many of the texts, in the simplest sense the “nine angles” of the O9A are the nine combinations of the three fundamental alchemical elements Sulphur, Mercury, and Salt, whose transformations over the seven boards of the O9A Star Game represent the septenary Tree of Wyrd and thus the nexion which is our psyche.

The O9A Deofel Quartet

Posted: July 3rd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Deofel Quartet, Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on 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.

Herewith, A Return To The Dark?

°°°°°°°°°

Herewith, A Return To The Dark?

As Anton Long wrote in 2011 ev in the ONA text The Discovery and Knowing of Satan,

                   “The Order of Nine Angles is an esoteric association of individuals, and the emphasis of this association is on: (1) practical experience and challenges (Occult, exoteric, and amoral) and (2) on the authority of individual judgement. Thus, for the ONA, what matters is the individual developing, from their own years-long (mostly decades-long) practical experience, a personal weltanschauung: that is, discovering their own individual answers to certain questions concerning themselves, life, existence, the Occult, and the nature of Reality.”

Also, two decades earlier he had written,

                   “There is no acceptance of someone else’s authority […] I claim no authority, and my creations, profuse as they are, will in the end be accepted or rejected on the basis of whether they work. Satan forbid they should ever become dogma or a matter of faith. I also expect to see them become transformed, by their own metamorphosis and that due to other individuals: changed, extended and probably ultimately transcended, may be even forgotten. They – like the individual I am at the moment – are only a stage, toward something else.” {1}

As Professor Monette explained, 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.” {2}

Now, in 2018 ev, with the early stages of Phase III of O9A sinister strategy {3} well-presenced, {4} and with an abundance of new and old O9A texts freely (and, for now, still) available from the omega9alpha weblog, it is obvious that the public future and the public persona/personae of the O9A – and the present and future interpretations, manifestations, and the natural evolution of the O9A – belong to (i) independent O9A nexions – be they traditional, Satanist, pagan, Left Hand Path, NS-orientated, Darkly Sinister, Vampyric, or otherwise – and (ii) to those artists, musicians (of whatever genre or none) and activists who presence by their endeavours the sinister-numinous aesthetic, and/or who presence or embody the esoteric philosophy and praxises, of the Order of Nine Angles.

Sufficient has been written, over the past four decades, by both “Anton Long” and The Inner ONA for those interested in the O9A to, should they so desire, follow the O9A Seven Fold Way, establish an independent O9A nexion or presence the ethos of the O9A through music and art or by other means.

Sufficient has also been written to counter the anti-O9A propaganda and silly allegations that modern self-described – mostly Levey inspired – ‘satanists’ and mundane others have spewed forth for decades and no doubt will continue to spew forth by means of various mediums.

All that those interested in the O9A, or interested in understanding the O9A, need for them to begin to appreciate the O9A in esoteric context – that is, sans polemics and propaganda, both O9A and anti-O9A – are the following five, brief, introductory guides all of which are available as gratis open access (pdf) documents:

{3} Phase III of the sinister strategy of the O9A is evident
(i) in “a burgeoning esoteric [O9A inspired] culture of which clandestine O9A nexions are a part,”
(ii) in those clandestine O9A nexions returning to the tradition of personal covert recruitment and the practical testing of new Initiates which testing includes culling,
(iii) in each O9A person, nexion, group, or cell, freely developing their own interpretation of everything O9A, because they are “free to develop and change everything O9A, [since] there is no authority above the individual, or beyond each group or collective of groups. No leader, no outer (or inner) representative, no council, no old guard, who can make pronouncements about or declare what is or is not correct. No official or genuine O9A; no heresy; no proscription of individuals or groups. Furthermore, no consensus is necessary or required among those who are or who associate with the O9A, although naturally a particular O9A nexion may have or arrive at a particular internal consensus and thus presence a particular interpretation of matters O9A,”
(iv) in “each O9A person, nexion, group, or cell, [using] their own judgement in respect of what they do; in how they, individually and/or as part of an O9A nexion, presence the dark and manifest the sinister in practical ways,”
(v) in the retirement of “Anton Long”.

°°°°°°°

A 2017 essay by Della E. Campion of the University of Washington – who has written various essays about modern esotericism and modern Satanism – deals with the Order of Nine Angles document titled The Culling Texts, containing as that document does the five (mostly vintage) texts (i) Concerning Culling as Art, (ii) A Gift for the Prince – A Guide to Human Sacrifice, (ii) Victims – A Sinister Exposé, (iii) Culling – A Guide to Sacrifice II, (iv) Guidelines for the Testing of Opfers, (v) Satanism, Sacrifice, and Crime – The Satanic Truth.

There are serious flaws with the essay and which flaws undermine the argument and conclusions of Campion.

The article by Ms Scott enumerates these five serious flaws and, by referencing O9A primary sources, deals with each in detail.

Classifying O9A Texts
(pdf)

Since the early 1980s, beginning with the Black Book of Satan, the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has published and circulated thousands of texts; so many in fact that one academic wrote:

               “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.” {1}

Given (i) the sheer volume of O9A texts, (ii) the growing interest in the O9A both academically and otherwise, and (iii) the profusion of recent (post-2011) texts dealing with aspects of O9A esotericism such as links to Hellenic hermeticism and why the O9A represents a ‘sinister-numinous’ and modern pagan tradition, it seems apposite to place now familiar O9A texts into their historical and esoteric context.
