The Two Types Of Satanism
(pdf)

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.

Afsana, Yusra, And The Green Damask Room
(pdf)

For decades, the esotericism of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) – its unique esoteric tradition – has been either neglected or scorned by both modern occultists and by academics who have written about Western esotericism.

In order to facilitate research into the O9A we provide here some comments about two hitherto ‘secret’ aspects of O9A esoteric tradition: the Rite of Afsana, and the location associated with Yusra, both of which are mentioned in certain questions that those publicly declaring themselves knowledgeable about the O9A – usually via the medium of the Internet – were (from around 2008 on) sometimes asked to answer in order to verify their claim to knowledge.

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.

Establishment Orthodoxy About The O9A

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.

“I suggest here that the Order of Nine Angles is also post-Satanic, having outgrown its identification with its original Satanic paradigm to evolve its system into novel forms. I also suggest that although it still retains the concept of the “Sinister” as a familiar, familial moniker, the ONA is poised to outgrow its exclusive identification with the Left-Hand Path – a trend already indicated by the ease with which it assimilates, uses, and subverts Right-Hand Path esoteric and exoteric forms to its particular aeonic purposes; such that the ONA system includes but transcends even the Left-Hand Path / Right-Hand Path dualism which would otherwise appear endemic to the concepts of the sinister.”

O9A Transgression And Subversion
(pdf)

°°°

In the above essay the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) is discussed in relation to two articles by the same anonymous author which were published in 2018 by a popular internet based music magazine. One of which articles – Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground – was devoted to the O9A, with the other – titled Why We’re Investigating Extreme Politics in Underground Music – dealing with artistic transgression, subversion, and infiltration, in general.

As we reveal, the article about the O9A is ill-informed, while the other article reveals a lack of understanding of artistic transgression and subversion. As we go on to note, the O9A defies classification according to mainstream, conventional, ideas, and appears to have taken “artistic transgression and subversion” to the next level.

That the anonymous author, in respect of the O9A, commits the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter [a generalization from specific examples] and the Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence was only to be expected.

Related to the above O9A essay is the following analysis by ‘us’ of a propaganda report on the O9A published in 2019 by an Establishment political ‘pressure group’ and hyped by mainstream Media, and in which report the author not only repeats the fallacies of secundum quid et simpliciter and of Incomplete Evidence, but also makes over twelve basic, factual, errors about the O9A and indulges in outright fabrications and misquotations.

Analysing Anti-O9A Prejudice And Propaganda

Posted: June 20th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, Richard Moult, Satanic Polemics, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Analysing Anti-O9A Prejudice And Propaganda

°°°°°°°°°

Analysing Anti-Fascist Prejudice And Propaganda
In Relation To The O9A

Prejudice is “preconceived opinion not based on reason or actual experience; bias, partiality; unreasoned dislike, hostility; an unreasoning preference or objection; a preliminary or anticipatory judgement.”

Propaganda is “the systematic dissemination of information, especially in a biased or misleading way, in order to promote a political cause or point of view.” {1}

In respect of the O9A (Order of Nine Angles), a reading of the “O9A” section of a 2019 report issued by a particular anti-fascist organisation is sufficient to (i) reveal that they are spreading disinformation and propaganda, and/or (ii) reveal their ignorance about the O9A, and/or (iii) reveal their prejudice. A revealing evident in their subsequent writings about the O9A.

Why prejudiced? To write or to speak about a matter or about a person or about a group in a reasonable, non-prejudiced way, is to have actual experience of the matter, person or group, or to be probative regarding the matter, person or group: that is, to have actual proof or evidence which validates what is written or said. Valid evidence would be evidence from primary O9A source material {2} and placed into the context of the O9A corpus thus avoiding the common errors of the fallacy of secundum quid et simpliciter, the fallacy of argumentum ad verecundiam, and the fallacy of Incomplete Evidence, fallacies which some academics commit {3}{4} and which propagandists invariably commit either deliberately or out of ignorance.

In the matter of the O9A, the anti-fascists in question have no actual proof or evidence from primary sources which validates what they have written about the O9A. When they do quote O9A material or alleged O9A material they provide no references to the text, printed or on-line; do not give the author of the original material; often misattribute the quote, and fail to provide context (vis-a-vis the O9A corpus) and thus, either propagandistically or due to ignorance, commit the fallacy of illicit transference. {5}

In respect of their Prejudice and their Propaganda they, for example, wrote:

§ In the 1990s the leadership of the O9A was taken over by Richard Moult

This reveals a bias because there is no evidence to support the claim that the O9A has or had a “leader” with voluminous O9A texts from the 1980s onwards clearly stating that the O9A has no leader – and thus is a leaderless, non-hierarchical, Occult movement or sub-culture {6} – with the author of most O9A texts, the pseudonymous “Anton Long”, never making any claim regarding his authority and power, and even writing to Michael Aquino of the Temple of Set that in the O9A there is “no acceptance of someone else’s authority” and that “I claim no authority.” {7}

Furthermore, one of the foundational principles of the O9A sub-culture is the anarchist “principle of the authority of individual judgment”, which means that anyone, associating or identifying themselves with the Occult sub-culture that is the O9A, is free to interpret and to manifest O9A Occult philosophy in whatever way they choose. {8} This principle in practice also means:

(i) that no author, no individual, no nexion, can present or represent the view or the opinion of the entity termed the Order of Nine Angles,
(ii) that the O9A does not have, never has had, and never will have an “official policy” about anything, and never has, and never will make “official statements” about anything; and
(iii) that the only authority which is meaningful for the O9A is the individual one which results from the exoteric and esoteric pathei mathos of each individual who is part of or who associates themselves with the O9A.

In effect, the anti-fascists in question were (i) producing and spreading disinformation – deliberately false information – or (ii) they were revealing their ignorance regarding the Occult philosophy and the praxises of the O9A, or (iii) expressing their prejudice, their partiality, their unreasoned dislike, their hostility, about and regarding the O9A.

If they were spreading disinformation, it reveals their prejudice, their bias. If they were revealing in public their ignorance about the O9A then they were also revealing their prejudice, their unreasoned, ill-informed dislike of the O9A.

In another example they wrote, in respect of Moult and Myatt:

§ Rather than true conversions, they were following what they themselves describe as “insight” – a deliberate ploy to infiltrate, explore and subvert other organisations and religions, especially those that offer recruits the chance to learn violent skills

This reveals prejudice, a bias, for three reasons. First, because the anti-fascists provide no evidence for their claim that those “conversions” were not genuine; second, because they provide no evidence for their claim that either Moult or Myatt, in respect of the O9A, named and described something termed “insight”; and third, because the use of the term “insight” by such anti-fascists either (i) reveals that they were spreading disinformation about the O9A or (ii) reveals their ignorance about the O9A.

For what O9A texts repeatedly mention are Insight Rôles, not “insight”, and which rôles form part of the tasks of an External Adept and only last for between one year and eighteen months, after which the person moves on to other tasks. {9}.

Thus, the claim that the decades later “conversions” of Moult and Myatt were “insight” – that is, Insight Rôles – is nonsensical in the context of the O9A, since no one O9A undertakes Insight Rôles in their later years, as a study of O9A texts would have revealed.

In another example, the anti-fascists wrote:

§ Myatt has also publicly left the O9A

This reveals prejudice, a bias, for several reasons. First, they provide no evidence for their claim that Myatt publicly left the O9A. Where are the public texts written by Myatt where he states he has publicly left the O9A? Where are the public texts written by Myatt where he claims to have been O9A? There are no such texts.

Second, even if their defence is the claim that Myatt was the pseudonymous “Anton Long” then neither they nor anyone else has provided any evidence – any facts based on primary sources or documents – to substantiate such a claim, such a malicious allegation. It is thus a preconceived opinion, or disinformation, or the unreasonable repetition of rumours; in all of which cases it amounts to bias, to prejudice, to being unfair.

In addition, they conveniently did not balance their unproven claims about Myatt by mentioning that three academics have expressed doubts about Myatt being the pseudonymous “Anton Long”, with (i) George Sieg writing that he considered it to be “implausible and untenable based on the extent of variance in writing style, personality, and tone” between Myatt and Long’s writings {10}, with (ii) Jeffrey Kaplan stating that Myatt and Long are separate people, {11} and with (iii) Connell Monette writing that it was quite possible that ‘Anton Long’ was a pseudonym used by multiple individuals over the last 30 years. {12}

All people who have claimed or who claim that Myatt was the pseudonymous “Anton Long” present and rely on are two things: (i) forgeries such as the two manuscripts titled Diablerie and Bealuwes Gast {13} and (ii) the analysis by Senholt in a Master’s thesis, later updated and included as a chapter in the book The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity {14} with Myatt in a section of his essay A Matter Of Honour sub-titled The Logical Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence – A Case Study, {15} having analysed in some detail the claims made by Senholt, concluding that the claims are not tenable. As in the matter of the O9A, no one in the case of Myatt has studied and provided as evidence of involvement primary sources relating to his life {16}.

In another example the anti-fascists wrote:

§ but again this is highly suspect as Moult recently admitted that the two remain in regular contact

This is not a rational statement because they provide no evidence for their claim as to why it is “highly suspect”. Does the fact that two friends are in “regular contact” mean something suspicious or sinister is going on? No, it only means that two friends are in regular contact unless and until there are facts – evidence – to the contrary. Until there are such facts the statement remains either disinformation or prejudicial. In either case it causes or can cause prejudice.

In yet another example they wrote:

§ the presumption must be that he is still actively involved in the nazi occult organisation he has spent almost 50 years supporting and leading.

Their bias is obvious in three things. First, that their presumption “must be”. It is unreasonable to claim that a presumption “must be” since a presumption is just a presumption, and thus is “the action of taking for granted or presuming something; assumption, supposition.” This statement that their supposition “must be” is therefore either wilful propaganda or ignorance.

Second, obvious bias in the statement “still actively involved”, because no evidence, no facts based on primary sources, are or have been presented, by that anti-fascist group or by anyone else, that he – Myatt – was ever involved with the O9A in the first place.

Third, obvious bias in the claim that “he has spent almost 50 years supporting and leading” since yet again no evidence, no facts based on primary sources, are or have been presented regarding such supporting and such leading.

On balance, therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that the entire statement is biased and misleading propaganda.

While many more examples of their bias and/or of their ignorance could be presented, sufficient have been presented here, and elsewhere {17}, for us to arrive at a reasonable conclusion in the matter of the pronouncements made about the O9A by a particular anti-fascist group.

Conclusion

It seems reasonable to conclude that the anti-fascist group in question is, in regard to the O9A, either deliberately spreading disinformation or is making statements and assumptions which are unreasonable because they are not evidential, that is, not based on a knowledge of the facts, on an unbiased study of primary O9A sources {2} and thus reveal either a basic ignorance of the nature of the O9A sub-culture or an unreasoned, an unethical, dislike; that is, a prejudice.

For a group which prides itself on offering “hope” rather than “hate”, their ignorance about or their bias, their prejudice against the O9A, and their ignorance about or their bias in respect of Mr Moult and Mr Myatt, contradicts their claim to champion “hope”. For ignorance, prejudice and disinformation, are often the genesis of hate.

{2} In regard to O9A primary sources, these consist of the O9A corpus – written by “Anton Long” from the 1970s to 2011, and later (2011-2019) by the “inner ONA” – and thus range from the 1980s Black Book of Satan to Naos, and The Deofel Quartet, to post-2011 works such as (i) The Pagan O9A, 2015, (ii) The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles, 2016, and (iii) A Compilation Of Some Recent O9A Texts: 2017 – 2019.

The O9A corpus amounts to over 5,000 pages of written material. As noted in an academic paper presented at the international conference, Satanism in the Modern World, held at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim on the 19-20th of November, 2009,

           “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.” Archive source: https://regardingdavidmyatt.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/senholt-the-sinister-tradition.pdf

{3} A classic example of the fallacy of illicit transference is the 2017 essay about the O9A by Della E. Campion of the University of Washington. See https://wyrdsister.wordpress.com/2018/04/24/another-academic-misinterpretation-of-the-o9a/

{4} A classic example of argumentum ad verecundiam – the fallacy of appeal to authority – is the section on the O9A by Massimo Introvigne in his Satanism: A Social History published in 2016. He relies on the opinions about the O9A by other authors, such as Goodrick-Clarke and Senholt.

He also commits another common fallacy, that of illicit transference, by arguing from the particular to the general, referencing one O9A item and then claiming that the opinion of the author in that item represents the opinion of the O9A. As we note later on in respect of the principle of the authority of individual judgment, no author, no individual, no nexion, can present or represent the view or the opinion of the entity termed the Order of Nine Angles.

Exposing Ignorance About The O9A

Posted: April 29th, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Inner ONA, Labyrinthos Mythologicus, O9A, O9A Nine Angles, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Exposing Ignorance About The O9A

°°°°°°°°°

An Ignorance Regarding The O9A

A Modern Orthodoxy

In the past year (2018-2019) the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) has received unprecedented coverage in the mainstream Media leading to an unprecedented mention of the O9A on various internet forums and blogs.

This coverage has a common denominator: from the coverage in 2018 in America and elsewhere of the alleged link between the O9A and the American neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division {1} to an article about the O9A on a popular youth-orientated on-line music site {2} to the recent report issued by the political, left-wing, pressure group misnaming itself as “hope not hate” {3} to coverage of that report in mainstream British newspapers such as The Independent, The Sun, The Guardian, and The Daily Telegraph, all of which newspapers made mention of the O9A.

The common denominator is the alleged neo-nazi and satanist raison d’être of the O9A and which raison d’être allegedly involves members infiltrating and manipulating “extremist right-wing” groups in order to disrupt society and which disruption is, so the Media state, apparently masterminded by a certain Mr Myatt.

Which reveals a complete – although not unexpected – ignorance and misunderstanding of the O9A, which misunderstanding could be either propagandistic and thus deliberate, and/or be due to the nature of modern mainstream Media and the nature of the internet. Which nature is to be superficial, populist, unscholarly, quick to judge, opinionated, presumptive, and often arrogant. Which nature was and is revealed, for instance, in two things.

First, in how long-established mainstream newspapers such as The Independent and The Daily Telegraph and The Sun printed stories about the O9A without getting their journalists to do their own detailed research and thus check the facts {3} with the result being that they simply reprinted – to a wider audience – the propaganda and disinformation, the “fake news”, of a political, left-wing, pressure group.

Second, in how so many people immediately believed and spread – often via the internet – what the newspapers and such a pressure group wrote, said, and published about the O9A and about Mr Myatt.

It was as if an orthodoxy about the O9A and about Mr Myatt had been created and was being upheld, with this orthodox, populist, interpretation unchallenged in the mainstream Media, unchallenged via the medium of the internet, and even unchallenged by those who pride and who preen themselves on being antinomian in respect of modern Occultism.

As mentioned, all this was not unexpected, given the nature of modern Western societies, the nature of mass Media (including the social media of the internet) and the nature – the physis – of many of the people in modern Western societies: a plebeial physis {4} quite different from the minority who in modern times uphold such principles as are enshrined in codes such as that of the O9A’s code of kindred honour. {5}{6}

The Raison d’être Of The Order Of Nine Angles

The raison d’être of the O9A will be clear to those who have undertaken a basic study of O9A texts, such as all of the following four compilations:

(i) Quintessence Of The O9A, issued in 2018,
(ii) The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles, issued in 2016,
(iii) The Eludent O9A, issued in 2018, and
(iv) A Compilation Of Some Recent O9A Texts, 2017-2019.

Even those who have only read Quintessence Of The O9A and The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles, will understand that the O9A is neither satanist nor neo-nazi nor even of the Western Left Hand Path but instead is concerned with 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.

That is, they will appreciate 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.

Thus correctly understood, such “sensationalist things” much hyped by the Media and others, are just a few of the exoteric (practical) and esoteric (Occult) experiences that the O9A assert can produce pathei-mathos, a learning from experience and a step toward wisdom.

Which “sinister” experiences of particular causal forms or abstractions are followed by a moving on to other tasks such as the Rite of Internal Adept where one lives alone in the wilderness for between three to six months, followed by several years of “numinous” experiences, followed by living alone for a lunar month in a cavern or dark cave and which chthonic experience is an enantiodromia where the individual goes to and wordlessly understands The Unity, The Monas, beyond all denotata, all abstractions and all causal forms.

As explained in one of the texts in Quintessence Of The O9A,
                   “both the LHP (‘the sinister’) and the RHP (‘the numinous’) are themselves causal abstractions – ideations – which hide both our own nature, the nature (the physis) of other living beings, and the nature of Reality itself.
                   For the O9A provides the individual with an opportunity to develop a perception, an understanding, a knowledge – acquired from a personal experience – beyond causal abstractions/forms and thus beyond denotatum; that is, and for example, beyond the illusion of conflicting/ideated opposites, beyond naming/denoting/words, beyond abstract morality, beyond dogma/ideology, beyond the simple principle of causation, and beyond the simplicity of a posited dialectical process.”

Conclusion

One thing is to be expected, despite this explanation and despise previous explanations of ours. This is that the Media, and the internet-created, orthodoxy regarding the O9A and regarding Mr Myatt {7} will not be challenged by journalists, nor by those who consider themselves to be rational fair-minded human beings, nor by those who pride themselves on being antinomian in respect of modern Occultism.

Indeed, we might expect the Media interpretation of the controversial O9A to become a time-limited cause célèbre given the current focus on “right-wing extremism and terrorism” and on “hate speech” and on already made demands by certain political pressure groups that the police and the security services investigate the O9A with a view to proscribing it as a “terrorist organization”. For example, The Times newspaper, formerly one of the most respected British mainstream newspapers, recently (March 2019) ran an article titled Neo‑Nazis hijack gaming groups to spread hate against Muslims that stated
                   “a Times reporter went undercover on the gaming platform Discord to infiltrate an invitation-only Satanist neo-Nazi group called The Order of Nine Angles (O9A). The group openly encouraged acts of terrorism and celebrated what was described as esoteric Hitlerism.”

However, another thing might also be expected, possibly because of this explanation of ours and/or because of previous explanations of ours. This is that a few individuals – perhaps two or three a decade – will understand and begin their own quest along the Seven Fold Way, even if or perhaps because the O9A becomes a proscribed organization with its literature banned and blogs such as this removed from the internet.

Which few individuals are all that are required, given the decades and centuries long aims of the Occult movement that is the O9A, and since the O9A, after three decades, has now reached the stage, the phase, where
                   “we can expand slowly, nefariously, in the traditional manner by the clandestine personal recruitment of suitable people, which in practice means those useful to us individually in our own lives, and potentially or actually useful to our Aeonic aims, and who also possess culture: that is, the four distinguishing marks which are (1) the instinct for disliking rottenness (an instinct toward personal honour), (2) reason, (3) a certain empathy, and (4) a familiarity with the accumulated pathei-mathos of the past few thousand years manifest as this pathei-mathos is in literature, Art, music, memoirs, myths/legends, and a certain knowledge of science and history.” {8}

For,
                   “one of the purposes of an esoteric group – a nexion – such as the Order of Nine Angles is to aid those associated with it or inspired by it to carry out particular tasks and functions; such as, via their own pathei mathos, discover wisdom (Lapis Philosophicus), develop their own weltanschauung, and thus in some manner contribute (knowingly, purposefully, unknowingly, or otherwise) to the sum total of human esoteric and exoteric pathei-mathos; which contribution may aid our conscious evolution as a species and may bring-into-being or aid the development of new ways of living, and which contribution may also be part of the necessary destructive and adversarial dialectic in respect of existing causal, human-manufactured, forms and dogma.
                  One means to aid such a discovering and contribution is and has been the structured, the methodical, the traditional, seven-fold way with its melding of exoteric and esoteric experiences.” {8}

{6} The Booke of Honor & Armes, published in 1590, is interesting both in the context of the O9A and in the context of Mr David Myatt.

§ In the context of Myatt, the book is or may be relevant to why and how he challenged several individuals – including two journalists and a member of Combat 18 – to a duel with deadly weapons for spreading lies. For the first chapter of the Booke describes “the nature and types of lies”. In other words, Myatt was upholding an old Western tradition and one which marked the difference, a distinction, between a noble person – such as a British gentleman – and those with a plebeial (plebeian) physis.

As Myatt states in his 2012 text A Matter Of Honour,
                   “I have never bothered to have recourse to civil law, and established Courts, to sue those making libellous allegations about me quite simply because the only law I believe in and strive to uphold is the law of personal honour. Given that I have challenged two journalists, according to the law of personal honour, to a duel with deadly weapons for making such malicious allegations, and given that they did not have the honour to accept this challenge or issue an apology in lieu of fighting a duel, I consider my honour vindicated and their own dishonourable character proven.”

The other person he challenged to a duel – police informer Wilf Browning – also refused to fight a duel with deadly weapons. See footnote 11 of Myatt’s autobiography Myngath (page 70, depending on the edition).

Regarding Myatt, the texts linked to at the following URL may be useful: https://omega9alpha.wordpress.com/2019/03/22/myatt-and-the-o9a/

§ In the context of the O9A, the book is or may be relevant to why the O9A has a code of kindred honour, with adherence to such a code serving to distinguish those who are O9A from those who are not O9A and who thus have a mundane, a plebeian, physis.

A study of Order of Nine Angles texts reveals that, from the 1970s on, their ‘nine angles’ refer to the nine combinations – the “numinous symbols of cliology” (qv. the 1990s text ‘Aeonic Magick – A Basic Introduction’) – of the three basic alchemical substances (Mercury, Sulphur, Salt) which are represented in the pieces of the 1970s vintage O9A Star Game.

These nine angles/combinations were first outlined in the 1974 text Emanations of Urania, and which nine combinations can be used to symbolize how the the causal and the acausal are manifest to us, as for instance in our psyche (in the nexion of causal/acausal that we are) via archetypes, ‘personality types’, and the esoteric correspondences of the O9A Tree of Wyrd.

Furthermore, according to Anton Long his inspiration for this 1970s theory of cliology – of nine alchemical combinations or emanations – was an ancient Arabic manuscript, of a few folios, he read while travelling and studying in the Middle East and Asia in 1971, and to which MS some scribe had added some scholia and the title Al-Kitab Al-Alfak – which translates as The Book of The Spheres.
