Appreciating καλὸς κἀγαθός and the O9A
(pdf)

°°°°°°°

Extract:

As the authors of the text Some Questions And Answers About The Order of Nine Angles 2019 write, the Occult movement that is the Order Of Nine Angles (O9A) is

“a means whereby the current Aeon, distorted by the Magian, can be undermined and replaced by a new Aeonic civilization with a new ethos and with a new mythos which presences that ethos. That new ethos is an essentially pagan one evolved from the Greco-Roman and Western notion of καλὸς κἀγαθός, of τὸ καλόν (the beautiful) and τὸ ἀγαθὸν (the honourable) manifest as these are in the O9A Code Of Kindred Honour and in the balancing (ἀρρενόθηλυς) of the masculous and the muliebral via the enantiodromia that is the Seven Fold Way and presenced as that balance is in the Grade Rituals of Internal Adept and of The Abyss.”

Where the ancient Greek term καλὸς-κἀγαθός in the context of the O9A means a certain type of individual; a type of individual well-described in the 122 Year of Fayen text Concerning Culling as Art – an extract from which is given below – and which individual has a particular personal character revealed in and by their behaviour and by the deeds they have done in the real world.

Revealing, and to an extent creating, this type of personal character is one of the main aims of the O9A Seven Fold Way (7FW) with its physical challenges, its difficult and testing Insight Roles, and its Grade Rituals, especially the Grade Rituals of Internal Adept and of The Abyss. All of which were designed to test and to challenge the initiate as well as provide opportunities for both exoteric and esoteric pathei-mathos – πάθει μάθος – just as the Labyrinthos Mythologicus of the O9A was designed to challenge and test aspirant initiates.

It is appropriate to explain what the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) mean by the term ‘numinous’ given that the term occurs in O9A expressions such as ‘the sinister-numinous’ and ‘the sinister-numinous aesthetic’.

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.

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.

°°°°°°°°°

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.

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.

The Nihilist O9A

°°°°°°°°°

Some caveats aside, there is – at least in our view – a fairly insightful analysis of the Order of Nine Angles published in 2017 in an article with the title Order of the Nine Angles and Supremacy of the Fringe.

Which item hints at what the ONA is really all about and just how it differs from the boring ‘satanism’ of Levey et al. Here are just a few of the interesting points made in that analysis.

{begin quote}

§          The popular notion of Satanism rarely lays stress on the political aspect of it. Seemingly, its radical individualism submits the ideological ambitions to the needs of individual self-expression – or self-indulgence – rendering it to a large degree a-political, at least at first glance. When we come to deal with the sinister dialectic of O9A, we are soon forced to realize that deep down the real stress is precisely on politics; the politics taken in the most radical sense of inciting the end of the present world (Aeon) and the creation of the new man and the new world.

§         The idea of influencing the broader society by subversion ranging from inducing moral depravity to terrorist acts is the nucleus of O9A metaphysics.

§         What really makes O9A stand out is how high it sets the bar: every other conceivable form of radical politics can potentially be assimilated, provided it is genuinely directed against the system, towards the creation of the new world and the new man. Through it all it is astonishingly truthful to the principles of modernity – radical subjectivity and dissolution of it in the further radicalization of freedom, evolutionary principle driven to the extreme and technical approach to human inner life.

§         The purpose of [the] trickster [insight] role playing game is to create strife, chaos, confusion and – Satan willing – bloodshed in order, not only to open oneself to the chaos of acausal, but also to create the same disposition in the social groups and society at large.

{end quote}

Finally, perhaps the most interesting bit of all:

{begin quote}

§         In a strictly philosophical sense this truly is a form of Satanism. What makes it ominous is that, when you ponder about it a bit, it really isn’t detached from presuppositions of the mainstream, seemingly anti-metaphysical, notions about man and history. O9A has an ontology and metaphysics of Satanism, but it is fairly in accordance with both extreme empiricists and supposedly opposed Heideggerian understanding of getting over the metaphysics (überwindung der Metaphysik): rejecting the error of transcendence towards above. The only step needed to develop what would properly be called ‘subphysics’ is to draw the final consequences of this decision.

{end quote}

For what the ONA really amounts to – in our view – is Chaos (χάος). Bringing the chaos of the acausal into our temporal (causal) world. By any means possible, and without any checks or balances, such as ‘God’ or even ‘Satan’ as described by both Nazarenes and by material egoists such as Howard Levey.

In this sense, the Order of Nine Angles really is nihilist, anarchic, and redefines what ‘modernism’ – metaphysically and in reality (esoterically and exoterically) – means, or perhaps should now mean.

O9A: The Nine Angles

Part One:

The Nine Angles Of The O9A

I. The Tree Of Wyrd And The Star Game: An Overview.

Herewith a useful overview of some of the renaissance alchemical, and the ancient hermetic, roots of the Order Of Nine Angles.



The above is a Renaissance illustration of the septenary Tree of Wyrd, from the book Azoth Sive Aureliae Occultae Philosophorum published in 1613 CE, which illustration includes the three fundamental alchemical substances, Salt, Sulphur, Mercury, whose nine transformations form the “nine angles” of the O9A and which nine angles are represented by the pieces of the O9A’s Star Game thus:



Both of the above illustrations were included in the O9A text ἀρρενόθηλυς: Alchemical And Hermetic Antecedents Of The Seven Fold Way Of The Order Of Nine Angles. {1}

The Star Game itself is an esoteric representation of the septenary Tree of Wyrd. That is, of the nexion between the acausal and the causal and which nexion is also represented by our psyche as human beings, a complex psyche hinted at in many medieval and Renaissance alchemical texts {2} and in modern times – for example by Carl Jung, whose inspiration was Renaissance alchemical texts – represented in terms of archetypes, a collective unconscious, the anima and animus, and ‘a shadow aspect’. {3}

The septenary Tree of Wyrd also represents the anados (ἄνοδος), the hermetic journey or alchemical/occult quest up through the seven spheres, anciently described in the Poemandres tractate of the Corpus Hermeticum {4} and described in more recent times by the Seven Fold Way of the Order of Nine Angles {5}.

Which overview reveals that the Occult tradition of the O9A is independent of, different from, and an alternative to the Qabala based tradition used by the majority of modern Occultists. {6}

II. Extract from the 2013 text Originality, Tradition, And The Order of Nine Angles. {1}

{quote}

A study of O9A [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), for in ancient Muslim alchemy and cosmology there are nine cosmic spheres or ‘supernatural’ realms. {2}

The most distant of these spheres or realms is falak al-aflak, the ‘primary of the spheres’. Below this (and thus nearer to us) is al-kawakib al-thabitah, the realm of the heavenly fixed stars. Next is Zuhal, the sphere of Saturn. Then there is Mushtari, the sphere of Jupiter, followed by Marikh (Mars); Shams (the Sun); Zuhrah (Venus); Utarid (Mercury); and finally Qamar, the sphere of the Moon.
