Richard Moult has released the latest image in his Non Est Secundus Quia Unus Est Tarot pack. As with his previous image Atu III, his Atu XVII image – under the subheading Nihil est divino divinius, caelesti caelestius – uniquely presences the sinisterly-numinous aesthetic and thus the sinisterly-numinous esoteric tradition.

Labyrinthos Mythologicus: Such A Confusion

Posted: May 28th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Labyrinthos Mythologicus: Such A Confusion
°°°

A perspicacious comment about the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), requiring no comment from the likes of “us”.

{begin quotation}

Such a confusion in great numbers is one of the stated purposes of the Labyrinthos Mythologicus, and it is what makes it inherently elitist at every level. That is to say, it is not elitist because it brags or because there is an authority denying entry, but because it asks from the practitioner a wide variety of abilities, at least in potential, and the willingness to develop them through hard work. Some of these are stated explicitly, and others are required by the sheer complexity or lack of explanations of certain things, which end up pushing the seriously interested practitioner to find ways, bridge gaps, interpret and discover his own unique way. Being unable to do so, either out of incompetence or mental intransigence, is to be culled by the design of the ONA or to be culled out of the loop by one’s own mediocrity, incapacity or emotional blockage and blinding (often the case among clever occultists).

From its inception, the Seven-Fold Way was intended to see most fail, to see most crumble under pressure, by a reluctance to try again, by carelessness leading to mental or physical injury or destruction. It should be clear to any objective and intelligent student of the materials (not to speak to a practitioner, I presume) that personal discernment is the foremost of all ONA requirements, once a holistic and balanced view of its rather wide assortment of ideas throughout the decades has been at least partially digested. To even suggest that the failure of many (most?) ONA would-be initiates is a sign of failure of the system, or to suppose that the bickering between ONA-inspired/derived groups implies an alarming state of affairs threatening to take it down, is to not to be able to see beyond the proverbial nose.

The O9A, Myatt, And Academia
(pdf)

°°°

Contents:

§ Preface
§ I. The Occult And Academia
§ II. More Academic Inaccuracies
§ III. Concerning Primary O9A Sources
§ IV. Michael Aquino And David Myatt
§ V. The Logical Fallacy of Incomplete Evidence – A Case Study

Five items concerning academic books or essays which have made reference to the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and/or to Myatt based on the assumption that he is ‘Anton Long’. The first three items deal with the shoddy nature of academic research regarding the O9A and Myatt given that none of the academic authors (i) accessed and referenced primary sources relating to Myatt, nor (ii) undertook detailed research into the O9A by studying the whole O9A corpus.

The two other items are primary sources relating to Myatt, contradicting as they do the claims made in the aforementioned academic books and essays.

The five fundamental principles of the Seven-Fold Way (7FW) of the Order of Nine Angles are, as described in the above text,
[quote]
(i) That the 7FW is an individual undertaking – and individual quest, or anados – and one which often takes a decade or more to complete. That is, success or failure is down to the individual; down to their determination, their self-honesty, their willingness to undertake certain experiences, and their ability to learn from their failures, their mistakes, and from their triumphs;
(ii) that both esoteric philosophy – O9A or otherwise – and everything written about the O9A by either Anton Long or by others, is/are irrelevant in comparison to what the individual learns and discovers for themselves by following the 7FW;
(iii) that the 7FW is not an Occult ‘Right Hand Path’ nor an Occult ‘Left Hand Path’ nor even ‘satanist’, but rather a means for the individual to develop their own unique weltanschauung and one which enables them to transcend such labels and categories;
(iv) that the 7FW is only one (fairly recent) Occult tradition and praxis among thousands (ancient and modern) and does not make any claims about being superior to or better than or more ancient than any other Occult tradition and praxis, stating only that it has been proved over decades to work, for some;
(v) that the goal is the discovery, by the individual, of what anciently was termed Lapis Philosophicus: that is, wisdom, which implies not only the standard dictionary definition of wisdom – “a balanced personal judgement; having discernment” – but also the ancient sense of (a) having certain knowledge of a pagan, Occult, kind to do with livings beings, human nature, and (b) an understanding of ourselves, of our relation to the world, to Nature, and to the Cosmos beyond.

In addition, nothing about the 7FW is dogmatic or fixed. What is suggested here – such as various Insight Roles – are guides, and suggested because they have been shown, by experience over decades, to work in respect of practical learning both personal and Occult and thus in respect of enabling the attainment of wisdom. The individual is free to modify and/or evolve such suggestions as have been made.

°°°°°

In its essence, the Order of Nine Angles is, and always has been, anarchic {1}, where a useful, working, definition of anarchy is “that way of living which regards the authority of The State as unnecessary and possibly harmful, and which instead prefers the free and individual choice of mutual and non-hierarchical co-operation”.

This anarchism of ours is evident, for example, in (a) our non-hierarchical, communal, nature and structure; (b) in our disdain for the principles of ‘copyright’ and ‘intellectual property’; (c) in our insistence on internal change and development, where everything ONA “can and should be surpassed, refined, changed, when others discover, experience, and attain knowledge and experience for themselves” {2}; and (d) in our Code of Kindred Honour which places the law of kindred honour over and above the laws of The State.

If there is a ‘secret’ about the O9A, then it is this.
