Caught in the Slave Arc

Posted: December 16th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Caught in the Slave Arc

Slavery is a mental condition that occurs when what you need to do to be free is obstructed by your fear of doing it, or fear of recognizing what it is that you have to do. Until you clear the blockage, you remain in a mental loop, unable to act, and therefore, neutralized.

Until you reprogram your mind to be realistic and to aim toward what it wants instead of scapegoating evils and holding talismans against them, you will be caught in the slave arc: false hopes creating unrealistic actions that fail, restarting the slave cycle.

The best way to enslave people is to erect a symbol they must affirm regularly. This filters out anyone honest who might notice things; instead you get people for whom every action in life is a transaction, in this case obedience for you doing favors for them.

This symbol could be a golden calf, a statue of Ba’al, a flag, a dictator, an altar, or an infectious notion like universal humanist morality. That notion holds that morality is the same because all of us are the same, therefore only individuals matter.

In contrast, all of the best people in history have believed in the transcendental, meaning something bigger than themselves or others. Some quest for learning, some for divinity, and others simply to make stuff work.

The small minds focus on people. They want to talk about the poor, minorities, disabled, retarded, LGBT+, women, midgets, and insane because these are proxies for themselves. They are really saying that they want to avoid the transcendental by focusing on people instead.

If you dig deeper, you find the ancestor of narcissism, solipsism. They want to believe that the world is like them, therefore they project their fears onto others and use concern for the plight of those others to justify and manipulate.

Looking critically at humanity, it seems that most of us are solipsists, and these operate by rationalization, or finding some external target to use as an argument for their internal desires. Help the poor, so that we do not have to focus on civilization itself, for example.

Compassion, altruism, sympathy, and tolerance all mask the manipulation of the solipsists. They want to cheat on the rules they set up for others because the purpose of those rules is to defend the solipsist, not help anyone.

Consider the case of Dr Dale Cavaness:

To his patients in the Little Egypt area of southern Illinois, Dr. John Dale Cavaness was an old-school healer who still made house calls, often waived fees for those unable to pay, and was willing to spend as much time with them as they needed, despite his busy practice.

“Dr. Dale, as he was affectionately called, was akin to Mother Teresa to his patients and friends,” according to the summary of his case in the acclaimed Crime Classification Manual. “Cavaness’s family and closest office workers, however, knew he had another, darker side.”

By the mid-1970s, Cavaness was living a double life of abusing his family while enriching himself through his lucrative medical practice and earning the admiration and accolades of the people of the Little Egypt area.

This man later killed two of his sons for the insurance money, being disappointed in them for following him into alcoholism and drug use. While we might categorize him as a typical Boomer parent, he most likely is just slightly more solipsistic than the average human.

He used altruism for the poor to manipulate an audience so thoroughly that he got away with the murder of one son, a DUI crash that killed two people, and extensive financial fraud over several decades.

We call them narcissists, but more likely people like this — sociopaths — are merely solipsists who have learned to manipulate others in the same way that the solipsists manipulate themselves. This is why at some point they, too, are betrayed by their own methods.

A successful criminal after all is not only one who never gets caught, but one who is never even suspected. The best murders involve people who just disappear and no one knows when, how, or why. No body or timeline means no investigation and no suspects.

Two neighborhoods over from mine lived a guy that only the smartest guy in our neighborhood thought was a murderer. One year over Christmas while he was fishing in the Gulf his wife left him; her car, wallet, keys, clothes, and money all disappeared with her.

He could have easily docked his boat somewhere obscure, taken a motorbike out of the hold, and driven home to drug her, put her in her car with all her belongings, and drive her into one of the bayous where no one will find her for another thirty years.

But only this one guy thought that, and he thought it because this guy stiffed him once on something small, like lunch or fishing bait. Why would you rip someone off for almost no real gain? If you got excited by feeling like you won one against the world.

This meant to the smartest guy in the neighborhood that the suspected killer was in fact a solipsist who saw only what he wanted, and the forces of reality that tried to impede it. The man made an enemy of the transcendental and the whole of reality that it references.

Whether we call them sociopaths, narcissists, psychopaths, borderline personality disorder, or simply antisocial, these people have the same mentality: my way against the world, and everyone else like me can be manipulated, so I will do it and get what I want at their expense.

Although these people seem to be winning at life, they are in fact slaves because they are tied to their weird desires that they cannot meet except through risky and often pointless crime. The solipsist exists in a prison of himself.

Similarly, those who are manipulated by them are slaves. In order to believe that everything is going fine — this is the bourgeois or city-dweller mentality — they have to let themselves be manipulated, and will simply similarly manipulate others to get what they want.

All of these people exist in the slave arc. Rather than confront reality, they handle it psychologically through the filter of themselves. This keeps them in an endless cycle of lying to, manipulating, conning, and rationalizing to each other.

If nothing else, this pathology creates tedium and a form of mental slavery. They exhaust themselves in a world where nothing is real, therefore they can find no personal truth, so they look to external influences to fill the void, which always fails over time.

All forms of egotism fall under this heading. Whether the sugary altruism of egalitarianism or the saccharine soothing groupthink of the Church, or even the self-centered individualism of Ayn Rand or the Church of Satan, the solipsistic pathology betrays its hosts.

How do you think we ended up with this wasteland of so many empty people, wandering about looking for a purpose, yet rejecting any real purpose they encounter?

Lucifer, the bringer of Light, might be seen as the original reductionist and realist. Like Prometheus, he brings wisdom at great pain, inverting the Garden of Eden myth; instead of being damned for wisdom because of our egotism, we free ourselves from egotism through wisdom.

And like all things in this world of tradeoffs and risk-reward curves, this represents a balance: wisdom is not found without pain, but that pain is less than the pain of remaining in the slave arc with the rest of the hominids (often called “nids” or “nidders”).

By his disobedience to God, Satan — a proxy for Lucifer, Prometheus, and all of the pagan gods — acquires mastery of himself in Hell. It is better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven because Heaven is part of the good/evil dichotomy that rules those caught in the slave arc.

Outside the slave arc, “evil” refers to all things which are not under Control by the moral system of individualism and the collective consensus that enforces it. The slaves fear anyone who is not bound by the rules of a society based on the individual.

A transcendental thinker, for example, is prone to means-over-ends thinking; he makes tradeoffs in order to get the results he desires. If he has to flood a city to save the ancient woods, the gods, or the civilization, he does it, knowing those deaths were inevitable.

All good thinkers operate this way. The moral system, which is really solipsism in disguise, operates by means-over-ends thinking, such as the idea that it is never acceptable to flood a city no matter what the cost. A leader has to be willing to make tradeoffs.

A leader must also be willing to compare risk and reward instead of standing on absolutes. For example, decriminalizing drugs means more will die; keeping drugs illegal means many will die. The question is which gets closer to a better vision of society for those worth keeping.

An ends-over-means thinker is inherently hierarchical; the moralists oppose this because they are projecting themselves, therefore to them individual human lives are all important and should be given more emphasis than whatever the goal or reality of the situation is.

Prometheus brought to humankind the knowledge of fire, bringing us out of the caves and into the light. With this came pain, not just for Prometheus but for us, because now we had to figure out how to regulate ourselves like nature once regulated us.

Disobedience, in the eyes of any one who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion. — Oscar Wilde

Lucifer provides disobedience even to disobedience. He debunks all that exists by bringing light like Prometheus and in doing, revealing what happens in the shadows of the Platonic Cave humans create by manipulating each other with mutual solipsism.

This debunks even individualism. Lucifer says that no false idols can stand before what is real, which means that even the self fails when it becomes a golden calf or portrait of Stalin. The transcendental whole is the only reality.

Individualists do not understand concepts that apply more broadly than the individual. The anarchists and libertarians, communists and Christians, even the oligarchs and philanthropists agree that the individual is most important and comes before all else.

Consequently, individualists find themselves outraged that a concept they should have understood, pluralism, might not go as they intended. Pluralism means “agree to disagree,” or that instead of a culture, we accept many viewpoints as simultaneously true.

When your society has a culture, it can have a right way of doing things and a goal. With pluralism, you say that there can be no goal higher than the individual, thus each person gets their own culture and a mutual non-aggression pact is created to tolerate all of them.

This system has a Satan of course. Anyone who suggests that there is a transcendental reality that is more important than our individual lifestyles becomes the Hitler to this society. But everyone else leaves each other alone and shares nothing with each other instead.

At first blush, this seems like the ideal system, if you are halfway bright. We each leave everyone else alone; everyone gets to do what they want. The only sin is telling someone they are wrong. What could be bad about this?

No anarchic system of this nature can pick a direction, therefore it can have no values. People do not work together toward anything except what they are paid to do. There is no culture and therefore no right way to interact.

You hear a lot of complaining about “capitalism” these days, but mostly what people are saying is that because we abolished culture with pluralism, there is no higher value these days that your career, your money, and your own celebrity value. That is anarchy and pluralism.

Conservatives, perhaps the biggest morons on Planet Earth, want to believe in pluralism because they have adopted a myth of “rugged individualism” or anarchy with guns, Jesus/Israel, and free markets. Yet they do not understand it.

For example, pluralism says that you do not have one religion per society; instead you accept all of them, which means that you get public displays of Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Judaism, and yes, even script kiddie “Satanism”:

Sherman says the exhibit has drawn widespread “outrage and disgust” among Iowans, “but few people think there is much that can be legally done about it because of free speech and freedom of religion.”

“However,” he adds, “I disagree.”

He points to the preamble to the Iowa Constitution, which says, “WE THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF IOWA, grateful to the Supreme Being for the blessings hitherto enjoyed, and feeling our dependence on Him for a continuation of those blessings, do ordain and establish a free and independent government, by the name of the State of Iowa… .”

He wants to talk about how Jesus was the founding of this nation, but forgets that back in 1866, we adopted pluralism with the first Civil Rights Act. You cannot have a national culture anymore, nor a national religion — the individual is more important — so you get all religions.

That means that Satan stands next to Jesus in the Capitol, just like Christians, Jews, and Muslims live in the same neighborhoods. This means that the Supreme Being was there to found the state, but now, it runs on worship of the human individual.

Script kiddie Satanism of the Anton LaVey type is designed, like Ayn Rand and Fred Nietzsche on which it is based, to deny the morality of the herd by asserting the preeminence of the individual. The only problem with that is that herd morality arises from individualism.

At its core, LaVeyian Satanism is no different than Christianity or libertarianism. It asserts that the individual comes first, but this requires a Devil’s Bargain because in order to lure others into this scheme, they too must be given the right to be equal.

The problem with that is that people are not equal; hierarchy is natural because it is logical. Some know more than others and are better fit to make decisions than others, and if you want to succeed, you give them the power and have them hold the wealth.

Egalitarianism on the other hand distributes the power and wealth to the point where no one can act decisively anymore, so you get a sluggard Carter-style economy and a hesitant, neurotic Weimar-style society where no one can do anything but emulate what succeeded before.

Apparently, the neurotics did not understand that egalitarianism arises from individualism, nor that pluralism means equal tolerance of all religions, and so some clown decided to stunt for popularity points with a religious hate crime against Satanism:

Founded in 2013, the Salem, Massachusetts-based Satanic Temple doesn’t believe in Satan but describes itself as a “non-theistic religious organization” that advocates for secularism. It is separate from the Church of Satan, which was founded in the 1960s.

The display caught Cassidy’s attention earlier this week. On Tuesday, he reposted a message on X, formerly known as Twitter, that included two photos — one of a Thomas Jefferson statue being removed from an unspecified location, and one of the Satanic Temple display.

“We have reached the point where our Capitols are removing Jefferson while monuments to Satan are erected,” the message read.

Very few of us believe in “hate crimes,” or even crimes, since those are means-over-ends. If you kill someone, the question is not the method (killing) but the ends, namely who you killed and whether this improved things. Not all killings are bad.

We can rephrase the famous “trolley problem” this way: a branch in the train track leads to two different futures, one better than the other. If you pull the lever and the train goes toward a better future, does it matter who was on the track?

Our critics will say that this path leads to Nazi, Fascist, and Communist levels of totalitarianism; we rebut this by saying that it is the method of nature and only logical. Democracy has avoided it, but democracy can no longer make decisions and is failing.

In nature, “hate crimes” are the logical result of mixing two different groups, whether religious, ethnic, cultural, racial, or all of the above as Samuel Huntington argues forms group identity in his The Clash of Civilizations.

However, if our society is serious about pluralism, it will treat this assault on a Satanic display the same way it would handle the situation if someone smashed a menorah, desecrated a Black church, put pork on a mosque, or wrote FAG on a gay club.

Naturally we know that it will not; egalitarianism operates by making things equal, which requires taking from the successful/productive to give to the unsuccessful/unproductive, which means that it always favors the underdog and punishes positive results. It is a moronic idea.

The con man who knocked down the statue — he is another Dan Crenshaw, a hard-posturing Christian libertarian veteran who will turn into a Swamp Creature the minute he crosses the threshold of DC — had a good point about the dethroned Jefferson and Confederate statues.

Pluralism says they stay up; egalitarianism say they must come down because they offend the underdog. Similarly pluralism says that both Zionists and pro-Hamas BLM/Antifa types get speech rights, but egalitarianism says punish Israel for succeeding where Palestinians did not.

Egalitarianism, like all forms of pacifism, means that we drop our goals and make avoiding conflict our goal, which requires equal tolerance of everything, especially the insane, stupid, and unhealthy. This is why it produces diseased and incompetent societies.

In the egalitarian ideal, we have anarchy so that all of us can do our little sins, society will pay for it through externalized costs, and we have some kind of administrative-bureaucratic state to serve as babysitter and custodian.

That ideal however requires that one perform acts of obedience to egalitarianism, and enslaves us mentally by prohibiting any methods other than those accepted by the egalitarians. To confine yourself as a slave in Plato’s cave, accept this Devil’s Bargain.

A Luciferian instead embraces conflict because it allows us to achieve our ends by choosing the best methods. In nature, everything is tolerated but nothing is supported, and whatever endures becomes the new standard.

Fear of that situation — it is not individualistic, therefore the solipsism cannot exist in it — causes people to embrace solipsism as a defensive weapon against reality. Not surprisingly, our civilization has become not just unrealistic but opposed to realism entirely.

Prometheus brought us light, and similarly, realism brings us clarity. It is only feared by those who fear that they will not measure up. That fear enslaves them and blinds them to reality, which in turn binds them to inevitable future failure.

Killing Is Neither Bad Nor Good

Posted: October 11th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , | Comments Off on Killing Is Neither Bad Nor Good

Following up on a post from yesterday, what does it mean to be ends-over-means instead of means-over ends?

Let us take a simple example: killing. The difference between murder, self-defense, killing, war, and execution are a matter of semantics written into law and politics by the emotional needs of a tribe. Morality is cultural, and culture is genetic.

  • Means-over-Ends says that killing as a method is wrong and therefore it can never be done except to stop other killings; it needs to be able to kill in order to keep killing sacred even if it is normally a negative thing.
  • Ends-over-Means says that the morality of a killing depends on who is killed and if things get better afterwards; if you snuff an innocent, nothing improves, but if you kill a killer, retard, criminal, insane person, parasite, or idiot, life improves.

Naturally the herd fears the latter because this says that people have unequal value, which is definitely true whenever we all gather to do a task. Some are really good at it and valued, others are terrible, and most of us are in the middle somewhere.

One may not like the conclusion that ends-over-means is a superior way to think, but it does not like means-over-ends run into paradox. It does not demonize the method, only asks that the goal conform to a mission and produce better results in reality.

Most human beings cannot understand this distinction, which explains one solid reason why humanity ruling itself has never worked out. For now, let us let this thought hang in the air until its meaning reveals itself.

All In Satan

Posted: October 9th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on All In Satan

We need, at some point, to talk about morality. Morality means the rules that guide you for the sake of things other than yourself. Some like a morality based in the results of our actions, and others like a morality based in our intentions.

Intentions do not equal reality, however, and many of us hold that because of that disparity, a morality of intentions often leads to its opposite in reality. For example, rent control was meant to keep prices low, but instead created slums and new, more expensive luxury housing.

In another example, making narcotics illegal caused them to be valuable, which created an economy around them which soon eclipsed any enforcement efforts. Attempts to ban pornographic books have merely turned them into contraband and ensured their survival.

We can see other examples too. Making certain kinds of securities highly regulated caused the market to pursue new types that were not so easily restrained. Making religious dogma canon caused fragmentation in the church.

Thus we see how intention-based morality tends to invert itself. It tries to stop an effect as if it were a cause, but the cause remains, so the effect takes a new form in a type of psychological torment like the old game Whack-a-Mole.

Results-based morality tends to work as a filter. You reward the landlords who provide quality housing at low cost by granting them new privileges. You hire the people who are not on drugs. You socially promote the people who do not have pornographic books.

Even more, this tends toward ends-over-means, or the spirit of the law above the letter of the law. If a securities firm aims toward ethical trading, it becomes trusted and endures. If religion has a purpose, all sects eventually come together on a shared core belief.

In other words, in results-based morality we submit to reality instead of humanity. We look toward having a goal that joins us with reality in a sense of purpose and a recognition of our minimal status as animals adapting to our environment.

To a results-based moralist, only results-based morality is moral because it affects the lives of people, nature, and the fragile order that makes a civilization. Intentions do not matter because they do not directly influence people, but results sure do!

This means that to a results-based moralist, we do not need to like what we discover or think that other people will applaud it. It is what it is. Reality is bigger than us and we exist by its rules, not the other way around.

Luciferians branch off from mainstream religion because we believe in results-based morality and therefore, are not willing to assign humanity the highest position in reality. Our view is what was normal until the Abrahamic religions took over with their intentions-based morality.

In the pagan view, nature and the divine are parallel, if not of the same substance. They act the same way. Humans are a small part, and what matters is making those humans survive in physical reality and grow in spiritual and mental strength.

The individualism — me first above all else — of the intentions-based moralists on the other hand diverges from nature. It posits that the divine uses an entirely different ruleset, and as a result physical reality is less important than the feelings of meaning from religion.

At an extreme level, individuals in the grip of this pathology live only to die for the promise of Heaven after death. The Satanist says that what happens after life is much like life, so there is no great sorting into “good” and “evil,” only continued adaptation to a new realm.

For pagans, all things existed in parallel. Many seed would fall, some would germinate, and only some would survive, but if each seed was a parallel, they knew that some seeds would make it to full plants. This meant an order beyond the visible.

In their view, all things had a purpose, but not all things would survive. The best would carry on and, because they were parallels, would carry on the spirit and essence of whatever their type was. If you have some seeds sprout, you have plants in the future.

When read in the context of their original writings, most religions in fact embrace this order beneath reality that parallels reality:

The original scriptures of most religions are poetical and unsystematic. Theology, which generally takes the form of a reasoned commentary on the parables and aphorisms of the scriptures, tends to make its appearance at a later stage of religious history. The Bhagavad-Gita occupies an intermediate position between scripture and theology; for it combines the poetical qualities of the first with the clear-cut methodicalness of the second. The book may be described, writes Ananda K. Coomaraswamy in his admirable Hinduism and Buddhism, “as a compendium of the whole Vedic doctrine to be found in the earlier Vedas, Brahmanas and Upanishads, and being therefore the basis of all the later developments, it can be regarded as the focus of all Indian religion” is also one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the Perennial Philosophy ever to have been made. Hence its enduring value, not only for Indians, but for all mankind.

At the core of the Perennial Philosophy we find four fundamental doctrines.

  1. The phenomenal world of matter and of individualized consciousness — the world of things and animals and men and even gods — is the manifestation of a Divine Ground within which all partial realities have their being, and apart from which they would be non-existent.
  2. Human beings are capable not merely of knowing about the Divine Ground by inference; they can also realize its existence by a direct intuition, superior to discursive reasoning. This immediate knowledge unites the knower with that which is known.
  3. Man possesses a double nature, a phenomenal ego and an eternal Self, which is the inner man, the spirit, the spark of divinity within the soul. It is possible for a man, if he so desires, to identify himself with the spirit and therefore with the Divine Ground, which is of the same or like nature with the spirit.
  4. Man’s life on earth has only one end and purpose: to identify himself with his eternal Self and so to come to unitive knowledge of the Divine Ground.

In Hinduism the first of these four doctrines is stated in the most categorical terms. The Divine Ground is Brahman, whose creative, sustaining and transforming aspects are manifested the Hindu trinity. A hierarchy of manifestations connects inanimate matter with man, gods, High Gods, and the undifferentiated Godhead beyond.

In Mahayana Buddhism the Divine Ground is called Mind or the Pure Light of the Void, the place of the High Gods is taken by the Dhyani-Buddhas.

Similar conceptions are perfectly compatible with Christianity and have in fact been entertained, explicitly or implicitly, by many Catholic and Protestant mystics, when formulating a philosophy to fit facts observed by super-rational intuition. Thus, for Eckhart and Ruysbroeck, there is an Abyss of Godhead underlying the Trinity, just as Brahman underlies Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

Our work at the O9A consists of identifying the patterns of reality because in those we can read the divine, at least as far as our puny hairy little human brains allow us. We are basically really smart mice with opposable thumbs.

Heaven in this view is not a place we go to for obedience to morality, but our origin and destination, an amoral place like nature where we will struggle to come to know ourselves just as we do here.

When one embarks on a Left Hand Path, it is to cast aside morality of “good” and “evil” — these are intentions and judgments — for a morality of results. We are concerned with what works, not what people think about it, especially most people because they are blockheads.

We try not to be “offended” by what we discover, because offense is self-reducing like nihilism, meaning that once one embarks down that path, it will eventually turn on itself through inversion and come to mean something quite plain.

For example, a nihilist who starts out believing in nothing will eventually find that he has beliefs, opinions, and most of all, preferences. He has theories about how the world works and wants to test them. There is meaning, but not universal meaning; it is his alone.

Our society is so screwed up and brain damaged that common sense based on observing reality is anathematized, and people instead live in a consensual symbolic hallucination based on tokens of good and bad in terms of intention and method.

If you wonder why your society cannot seem to make any complex decision well, is overrun with various freaks and geeks betraying high mutation load, pursues an anti-culture of base hedonism, and self-destructs in pursuit of ideology, this is what you are seeing.

Satanism is realism, and from its metaphysical counterpart, Luciferianism, comes the Perennial Philosophy in a new form: the divine acts like nature, so the divine also has natural selection, and rewards competence while punishing incompetence.

This contradicts what you are taught in the Abrahamic religions which are based on bourgeois commercial reality, or the idea that we all exist as individualists advancing ourselves and nothing else is important, least of all shared things like culture, nature, civilization, and the divine.

We may not like what we have come to know as true, but this does not matter because we are not in the realm of intentions. We are in the world of what works versus what does not. “Good” and “evil” are just method-based categories for those.

Like many things, this is an esoteric path. It starts out baffling but as it comes to make more sense, new doors open. Souls are unequal; this varies with the ability, focus, and gumption of the person involved.

Those who stand against divergence of the divine and the physical assert that their way is a “higher” morality, but there can be no goodness in that which produces bad results and makes people suffer like Abrahamic religions, egalitarianism, and consumerism.

Ultimately humanity breaks down into two groups: those who see the purpose of life in life itself, and those who do not and substitute for it with a world of human judgments, emotions, and importance.

We stand against history, which for centuries has been headed toward civilization collapse, and for a positive future in which humanity overcomes its neurosis, its pathology of peer pressure, and the ideologies and religions which lead us into self-destruction.

This requires confronting some notions which are very taboo now, but were not so in saner times.

You will probably hear from many sources about how we are Nazis, jihadists, eugenicists, elitists, racists, and other nasty terms. All this means is that we recognize that reality is inherently unequal for a reason.

If the divine and nature are parallel, inequality is holy and equality is an artificial human pretense, a vanity that like all vanities leads us to deny what is real and pursue what is symbolic but unreal, to the ruin of all.

To escape the artificial, we must first accept that reality is more important than human feelings, and next, start discovering how to see the purpose of life in life itself. If the divine and nature are parallel, then there is a purpose to everything.

That requires we accept a very ancient concept, destiny. This means that we are born unequal, and some rise above others as a result of their abilities and inclinations, and we all benefit from having their leadership and competence.

We are far beyond what the worst bogeymen of humanity like Hitler could envision. We want the law of Darwin to apply to our thoughts, actions, and bodies. We want to refine ourselves as nature refines itself to be excellent, not tolerant, fat, oblivious, and selfish.

Once you get beyond the boundaries of intentions-based morality, it becomes clear that humanity is in a death spiral and needs to change its thinking to escape. We are that change. Right now, it will scare you, but as time goes on, its wisdom will become clearer.

Beyond the Binary

To students of language, the enduring mystery of words entices and provokes us. The terms which mean the most — spirit, truth, good, information — remain the most inscrutable, but are also found at the core of almost everything that we do. It is as if we are speaking a language we do not understand.

Total Nihilism

Posted: September 19th, 2022 | Author: | Filed under: Nihilism | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Total Nihilism

Nihilism receives a bad rap because in the vernacular it means “belief in nothing,” and people focus on the nothing instead of the belief. A nihilist is skeptical of all human truths, values, and communications because they are manipulative.

Most nihilists recognize that we find ourselves in a species in the midst of committing suicide. Instead of raise itself to higher standards, it opted for tolerating the lower, and now it is inundated in the insane, psychopathic, idiotic, sociopathic, perverse, and criminal.

Nature does this to species that cannot gain control of themselves with a replacement for natural selection. If you do not remove the waste humans, they swamp you. Societies die by being able to subsidize parasites, and those then take over.

As we like saying around here, either the best oppress the rest, or the rest oppress the best. The former leads to some grimness, but the latter leads to getting bred back down into rodents. You either kill the weak or they kill you.

That sort of talk scares even the best of our people into submission now because they have grown up afraid of gulags, guillotines, and Nuremberg trials, so they are unwilling to entertain any anti-egalitarian thought.

Instead they depend on the idea of universal truths, values, and communications so that they can avoid conflict so that the Herd does not exterminate them. This is most of what motivates most people surviving above the subsistence level today.

To get past this insanity — note: it strikes only prosperous and high-IQ societies, since others never made it up Maslow’s pyramid to even consider the question — we have to first become nihilistic.

In that sense, nihilism is the only morality, and the only path to sanity. Humanity is stuck in a mental feedback loop of its own solipsism and can only escape through From total nihilism:

Most people find it odd that I am a nihilist. I am fond of religion, believe strongly in a personal morality, enjoy caring for things and people, am bonded to culture, and am deeply conservative in that anarcho-monarchist way that focuses on the big stuff and leaves everyone alone in their personal lives. None of what I do fits into the normal silos that people use to categorize people like hashtags — #vegan, #evangelical, #neocon, #hipster, #farright — and so half of them ignore me. The other half recognize an actual threat from someone who can diagnose the pathology behind their purported ideologies and faiths, and therefore show them their emptiness. Whether you wield it or not, emptiness is the primal weapon.

As a nihilist, I am a priest of emptiness. That is, I want to clear away all false somethings and replace them with emptiness so that I can fill it, much like how forest fires destroy the accumulated leaf, wood, and animal detritus, leaving behind cleansing ash that imbues the soil with lots of carbon for future organisms to use. Death and destruction of the irrelevant (has no use to anything but itself) and unintelligent (cannot adapt to anything but its own desires) is part of nature, both natural selection and periodic cleansings like plagues, storms, fires, and outbreaks of ice weasels that seek to bite our carotids and then eat our delicious, rare, soft, and flavorful eyes.

Most people are fake and unstable because they suppress the knowledge of how fake they are. They want to ingratiate themselves to you and make you feel good, so they only show you the safe/good sides of life. I am like nature; I am both storm and balmy day, both predator and cute furry bunny, both life and death. These are not “of” me, but “in” me as they are in you, because we are parts of nature. I created nothing, merely discover it, and to my credit, am honest about what I see and have learned. Most of humanity falls down on that latter point but let us face it, honesty is the ultimate luxury, something you can only do if you have a healthy self-esteem, willingness to steal time from the karmic drama of society and commerce, and enough extra cycles on your forebrain AI to spend turning over ideas like a Lament Configuration in your hands.

Some might say this is duality but the key to my mind (and to me) is that it is a singularity: time exists, so things run in cycles, which requires one cycle going forward and one going backward. In life, the forward cycle is creativity, conservatism, continuity, productivity, procreation, and civilization; the backward cycle is commerce, socialism, novelty, salesmanship, egotism, and parasitism. If someone were aiming to live in a balanced way, therefore in equilibrium with themselves, they would march on the forward cycle but limit its excesses to avoid sliding into the death cycle. Basically stopping time by avoiding the decay, even though one cannot stop time and therefore it will manifest in small (and more interesting, more local) ways.

You cannot worship God without also giving praise to the Magister; you cannot praise Satan without acknowledging the role of God (and you cannot believe in God, properly “godhead,” without believing in The Gods like a good pagan, since all three — unconscious universe, conscious but amoral gods, and guiding spirit of forward motion in love and death — must be there for the universe to function on a metaphysical level). You cannot praise art without praising those who fund art, and you cannot end poverty without ending the cause of poverty, probably with natural selection, including wolves soaked in blood howling at the moon as they feast on the corpses of the weak, stupid, criminal, insane, and perverse. This may be a scary universe, but it is a logical one.

Nihilism accepts both relativity and the whole of reality, which we only know through a heuristic, and know unequally and unevenly because we are not all one, we are not all the same person, and narcissism is a lie. That is, some of us may know it and write it down. The rest will see a YouTube video about it and pretend they know, but really every single person has their own degree of knowledge of reality (objective), their own ability to perceive it (Bell Curve), their own experience (destiny), and their own degree of gumption and honesty that makes them seem out more of the heuristic of knowledge (subjective). Nihilism says that there are no absolute truths, values, or communications, and this is realistic although blasphemous and heretical toward our Enlightenment-era (i.e. ancient and calcified) notion of “equality.”

It is important to note the basic definition of nihilism is itself cryptic; we can grasp the basics, but it requires more interpretation, and like all elephant in the room style Big Issues, almost everyone gets it wrong:

Nihilism is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated.

I rephrase it this way:

Nihilism declines to accept the social belief that universal values, universal truths/knowing, and universal communications exist.

We do not negate; we simply refuse to participate in the herd drama. As I recently wrote in a pipe-smoking analysis:

All philosophies are conjectural except commonsense realism, and therefore, are threatened by other conjectures.

Somewhere in between the human categories we can find a truth: people are not the same, nor do they have the same wisdom or needs, therefore there cannot be one standard of tobacco, truth, values, or communications. All we can do is pass on what we know, unlocking our word hoard to communicate as well as we can, hoping that our suffering leads to conclusions which can save others the same suffering so that they can move on to new suffering, therefore increasing the sum total of human knowledge.

Our minds settle on the tangible whenever they can. We like broad categories, square grids, equal divisions, and integers. Nature works in clines, curves, individuals, and ratios; these do not break down into “easy” for humans most of the time.

In other words, you can compile knowledge, but it is esoteric, meaning that per the Dunning-Kruger Effect, only those who have the ability to recognize it, are ready psychologically to recognize it, and know enough about its precursors and prior causes to recognize it, are going to even know what it is if they stumble across it. Imagine a primitive hominid discovering a lump of refined uranium on the jungle path on his way back to the cave; he will not make an atomic reactor out of it. He might use it to bash nuts. It will probably kill him because he does not know what it is, but the smartest hominids will look at something they do not understand and have no way to recognize and nope the heck out of there.

A nihilist is a heretic. By nature he will blaspheme all acknowledged truths as a means of testing the strong ones and identifying the weak, which he will destroy. A nihilist understands emptiness; he is the only one in human societies based on pretense and egotism who can recognize emptiness. To everyone else, emptiness is fullness because it allows them to project their egos all over it, which because they do not know what they are flirting with, will probably destroy them in one way or another. A nihilist recognizes emptiness for what it is and treats it seriously. No wonder we are arch-conservative, devoutly religious, unwilling to judge individuals, accepting of eccentricity and variation, skeptical of commerce, distrustful of altruism and compassion, and otherwise the type of logical commonsense realist that humanity needs and therefore will never recognize.

We are the heretics against a failing order and its illusions. Unlike the godly and “compassionate” egalitarians, we believe in the potential of humanity, which requires clearing aside the waste humans.

This can be done as our ancestors did, with a caste system, instead of through some modern method like feeding them into wood chippers, but if we do the latter we can compost them and distill the results into high octane liquors. You decide which you think fits best.

Nihilism brings an extreme skepticism not of the world, but of what humans consider to be the world, which is reality as tokenized into human symbols that represent our fears of conflict, death, and insignificance more than a sane and level-headed depiction of the world.

This extreme skepticism, a type of radical realism, gets us past the insanity that is killing us by making us worship humanist illusions instead of nature and the divine, which are written more in potential than in tangible, material, and symbolic objects:

Nihilism struck me one day as an antidote to the complete insanity of adults around me, who I observed were tormented by death. Alone in the forest, I suddenly felt that everything was in the hands of benevolent force of life itself, and that the tension between the tangible and the present moment and the unpredictable, estimated, approximated, ambiguous, and mysterious future and distant consequences of our actions was the driving force behind humanity.

To address this, I invented my homebrew nihilism from what I knew at a young age: the woods, and what I had seen in other humans and could test in myself. This nihilism consisted of a simple statement, which is that reality was both the tangible and intangible, comprised of a fusion between what we might call natural law and logic, using the ecosystems of the forest as a guide. It was based on life, in rejection of human life and the triad of universals — values, morality, and truths — which took the place of the one consistent and therefore real thing, which was external reality itself. It rejected humanism and the manipulative nature of human control, and favored understanding the logical chains of events and the reasons why things happened as they did.

Like most things I write, this philosophy is 60% borrowed from my influences (if you have read Plato, Burroughs, Eckhart, Schopenhauer, Kant, and Nietzsche you have the basics) and 40% entirely of my own creation in a form that I have found nowhere else. It is simply my framework which encloses the knowledge of the past in the unique perspective that apparently only I can bring to the discussion. Since those days, I have endeavored to understand that moment of clarity in the woods, and thrashing toward that clarity through a stream of words.

Lucifer, like nihilism, represents the rejection of the human world in favor of the natural world, which because it offers potentials, allow us to see what we might be able to have instead of what we have now, even if it requires painful sacrifice to get there.

Culling is not a sacrifice like in Hollywood Satanism, but a removal of the irrelevant because it is a threat like cancer or sepsis, and the real sacrifice is within ourselves as we adapt and change our personalities, emotions, and desires to fit what is real.

Only by doing this can we escape the force that is destroying humanity as is expressed in many philosophies and dogmas, solipsism or the belief that our tokens of the world are more real than the world itself.

The Christian doctrine was a simplification of the Greek idea that in reality, idealized “forms” repeat themselves and that we must distinguish appearance from discernible reality, or the abstract similarity between repeated structures and their derivation as responses to the same needs. In Greek logic, a chair was a design response to a need to sit; it did not exist as abstraction, nor was invented — it was simply the easiest logical response to the need.

As this doctrine filtered through politics, or the need to motivate people for earthly ends, it got simplified. Instead of forms being patterns emerging from the forces of nature interacting, and having an informational basis, they were presumed to be derived from a God and Heaven which was perfect and existed outside of this world, and were real, perfect, pure things.

Part of this simplification was the idea that the soul was separate from the body, and that the body was an inferior form, so we should be judged on our souls, which are in the eyes of God equal because they come from this imperfect world and not the perfect other one. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth,” Christ said, reminding us that all souls were equal in the eyes of God.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)

In this new view, there was no discernible reality in which the abstract traits and abilities of humans placed them in a role; this was replaced entirely by the equality of souls. In this way, appearance and abstraction were joined using the simplest possible device, which replaced the idea of cause and effect (person is good at math, so becomes a mathematician) with humans as cause of all things (if you want to, be a mathematician).

Nihilism rejects universalism, which is the shared consensual hallucination caused by individuals projecting together what they want to believe is true, which because it is conjectural inevitably results in them banning, censoring, and deplatforming anything else.

Realism is the opposite of universalist, moralist, and binary beliefs; it says that consequentialism, or measuring actions by their results and not the intention behind them, matters more than anything else.

A realist sees humanity as awash in its own illusions because it has created a taboo out of discussion of its fears, therefore it pursues only that which is left, which means the uncontroversial lowest common denominator that is always anti-realistic.

In other words, we are a species struggling against self-deception, and only by reaching out to nihilism and then further realism can we become sane again. This requires rejecting the Revolutions but first, rejecting solipsism:

Nihilism states the bare facts of life: nothing can be known because we relate to the world remotely through ourselves; nothing can be communicated because communication is a process of negotiation, where each side attempts to understand the other and comes away with its own version of what is being said; values are baseless in that they do not exist in reality, but comprise our response to it. We can argue that objectively better results exist but people can choose to deny that fact, or deny that better is indeed what they desire, and choose something else instead. The human struggle is one between narcissism and realism, and when narcissism wins out, people choose illusions over realistic responses. This is the most common state of human existence, hence the use of the term “common” as a type of lower rank.

The good understand why good is important, but no one else does; genetics trumps reasoning as usual and only some have the raw mental ability to understand what good is and why it is preferable to bad. Most people in fact prefer bad, whether mediocre objects and services in life, or disorganized society so that they may pursue their own vices, desires and personal profit. It does not occur to them that there will be an equal and opposite reaction as life re-arranges itself in response. Nor does it occur to them that they mark themselves by what they choose because it indicates the limits of their understanding, and that social rank comes from this process. We can say that the argument for goodness is objective, and be correct, but that has no bearing on whether or not it will be understood. The reality is that we deal with human beings, and they are only able to direct themselves toward what they understand. Most understand very little and so are prone to error, which is the root of “bad.”

Nihilism affirms this emptiness. Much like Lewontin’s fallacy expected race to be written in a single gene, the average person anticipates that life itself will have literal writing on the wall. The illusion arises from the fact that our world simply does what it does, objectively, but that our response to it must reflect our own interests as a species bent on survival, and that these vary between individuals based on capacity. This violation of blank slate theory and egalitarian dogma requires us to accept, snobbishly or not, that not all people are the same. Human responses are between subjective and objective because they depend on what the individual knows and can process, with some succeeding more than others. But only those who were going to succeed anyway know to pay attention what thrives and what does not, and to select one over the other.

Solipsism leads to individualism which in groups creates egalitarianism and from that, the idea of universal and absolute truths, values, and communications which are then used to enslave people and move them toward self-destruction.

If you wonder why every great human society has failed and been replaced by third world wastelands, this is the process that creates that result.

Nihilism requires that we reject the false god of ourselves as well as the false gods of Abrahamic religions and Leftist secular religions, and instead pursue the challenge of life itself:

Thematically, all of metal mirrors a horror movie: it shows humanity some new force which technology and society (which is a social entity) cannot address, and only the lone outsiders can think outside the box and come up with a solution, which they then apply independently of the social rules by which we live day-to-day. Think of your typical horror film. Ordinary people are stumbling through life, not particularly motivated. Some force arises which they cannot explain, and their first challenge is that _no one else believes them_. They have to get over the fear of social rejection in order to say what they see, and to take action while others stragnate. Then social means of dealing with the problem fail, as does technology, which requires them to invent a new way of tackling the problem. Death metal portrays society as this kind of mental fog which prevents action against actual but socially unrecognized threats.

The philosophical stance of death metal is a pragmatic realism with a long-term focus. Both of those ingredients are essential, since without the long-term focus pragmatism becomes appeasement to whatever trends is blowing through and makes itself convenient. It eschews the karmic drama of the individual that obsesses all rock and pop music. Instead, it focuses on the cause->effect relationships of history and other big and somewhat terrifying concepts. It’s about the results of our actions and the different choices we can make. This is more like human knowledge from the distant past, when civilization was new to us, and our goal was to achieve civilization, not “game the system” and live off what established civilization provides.

For these reasons, I refer to death metal as nihilistic. Most philosophies teach us that there is some “inherent” good and bad in life, usually to control us. Nihilism says there is no inherent value, purpose or communication. All is a choice. We can choose to murder all the intellectuals, or choose some other option. At first this seems like moral relativism, until you realize that the second part of moral relativism — “every choice is equally valid, and all must be accepted” — is not present.

As the old riff goes, the meaning of life is a tautology; the goal is to live, but that requires understanding how to live well, which is equal parts hard deterministic realism to adapt to reality and imaginative aesthetics of quality in order to discover beauty.

This is why Plato begins his discussion of politics with the question of the good life. We can survive with a few basic steps; however, how do we get ourselves to sanity so that we can enjoy life without living in constant neurotic fear?

Nihilists such as myself suggest rejecting the false universals we use to suppress those fears, accepting our fears instead and having compassion for ourselves in realizing that these fears are with good foundation, and then moving on to look at what is beautiful.

Our species remains mired in self-pity because people would rather play the victim than change their thinking, personalities, behaviors, or emotions. We focus on the fear, and this leads to linear thinking.

A nihilist might suggest accepting the fear as one input of many, looking at the bigger picture to derive patterns, and noticing that the spiritual and natural exist in parallel forms which suggest an underlying order tending toward goodness:

Parallelism suggests that decisions are made according to indicators found in parallel between multiple factors. This reduces the arbitrary nature of linear decision-making. As a corresponding notion, parallelism also suggests that structures exist in parallel throughout the universe. This includes the vertical dimension of complexity and the possibility of metaphysics. “As above, so below,” would be an expression of parallelism; another way to view it is that there are no structures in the cosmos which are radically incompatible with any others.

As such, parallelism is an attack on how most people conceive of religion. The average person is either (a) a materialist, believing that there is nothing but physical matter and thus enhacing physical comfort for people is the best goal (utilitarianism), or (b) a dualist, believing that there is some “other side” where all things are pure and clear and people will live in perfection in the order of God or gods. Parallelism suggests instead that any additional metaphysical dimension will resemble what is here, because in all aspects of reality, nature uses mirrored structures to create an architectonic or self-balancing order. The greatest is found in the least and vice-versa. It is a perfect design.

In addition, parallelism points out another structure in nature, which is a natural selection-like mechanism that is found in nature, but also in mathematics and thought. Roughly speaking, for any possible action there are many parallel impulses, and each one reflects a certain degree of maturation toward completeness of organization. The most organized tend to form a parallel harmonic level — imagine the parallels themselves as verticals, and a horizontal line being drawn where completeness of order occurs — and thrive, while others go away. Our thoughts are like this: we have many impulses in response to stimulus, and our brain selects those which are the most complete and which do not trigger any negative feedback loops.

Satan represents all the fears of humanity. This suggests that He is the gateway, and only by clarifying our minds with courage instead of cowardice and self-pity can we ascend to that gateway and rediscover the possibilities of life that lie beyond.

Exposing Anti-O9A Propaganda

For the past three years various lies and “fake news” have been circulated, and allegations made, about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) by journalists, by anti-fascists, by certain politicians, and by others.

Here is the “other side” – the O9A side – of the story, a side the mainstream Media, and anti-O9A propagandists, refuse to even acknowledge.

The Propaganda Campaign Against The O9A Continues

Posted: September 21st, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Labyrinthos Mythologicus, Nihilism, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Propaganda Campaign Against The O9A Continues


The now years-long propaganda campaign against the Order of Nine Angles continues. As witness two recent reports which repeat what has now become the Establishment orthodoxy about the “heretical” O9A.

According to a report on Vice News in September 2020,
                  {quote} A man charged with the “random” killing of a Toronto man has several online connections to Order of Nine Angles, a group an expert described to VICE News as a “neo-Nazi death cult.” [The O9A is] connected with British neo-Nazi David Myatt.{/quote}

It also repeats the lie, the propaganda, by the so-called “Hope not hate” political advocacy group, and others, that the O9A engage in “sexual assault” and rape and sexual grooming when a study of O9A texts reveals the exact opposite. {1}{2}

Notice how the so-called “expert” is not named and merely repeats the anti-fascist propaganda that the O9A is a “neo-Nazi death cult” for which no evidence is presented, a claim that a reading of O9A primary texts would refute. {1}{2} A more responsible and accurate statement would therefore have been that the O9A is alleged by its opponents to be a neo-Nazi death cult. Whatever such a so-called cult actually is.

Similarly, no evidence is presented for the claim the claim that Myatt is or was connected to the O9A – a claim Myatt has for decades denied – so that a more responsible and accurate statement would therefore have been that the O9A is allegedly connected to former neo-nazi David Myatt. {3}

In a September 2020 report by The Canadian Anti-Hate Network, about the killing of a Muslim man by Von Neutegem it was stated that,

                  {quote} “According to UK anti-hate researchers Hope Not Hate, the dark cruelty at the core of O9A encourages acolytes to engage acts that including extreme violence, sexual assault, assassinations and human sacrifices. Members have been charged for plotting terrorist attacks in the UK and USA. Included in the Von Neutegem social accounts is a YouTube channel. In it, chants associated with the O9A ceremonies play as a black and white POV shot shows a nine-pointed pentagram — the symbol of the O9A — adorning the monolith of what looks to be a homemade altar.”{/quote}

Notice how they also repeat the lie, the propaganda, that the O9A engage in “sexual assault” and other such crimes when a study of O9A texts reveals the exact opposite. {2}

It also repeats the allegation that the O9A has “members” whereas, being an anarchistic/nihilist group – with no contact address, no leader, no officials, no individuals in positions of authority – the O9A cannot have members only those who are interested in it, or who personally associate themselves with O9A philosophy often on the basis of either misunderstanding that philosophy or believing anti-fascist propaganda about the O9A.

A personal interest evident in the fact that Von Neutegem made mention of the O9A in “social media” accounts, reproduced O9A chants via another media platform and included an image of the O9A sigil. A personal interest which will no doubt not stop anti-fascists, journalists, and others from claiming he was a “member”.

Once again, the astonishing ignorance about the true nature of the O9A – by journalists and anti-fascists and others – continues to amuse us, for they have obviously not read O9A primary texts such as The Seofonfeald Paeth, {4} and if they have skimmed though a few such O9A texts they have, out of prejudice and intolerance, rejected them.

Update, 24 September 2020 ev: Since our original post, “Vice News” has amended its article Random Murder of Muslim Man Linked to Neo-Nazi Death Cult several times. The latest version states that “Balgord says [his media posts don’t] prove Von Neutegem was a member of an O9A group but it does point to the man having spent time with their teachings.” Balgord is apparently the spokesperson for the Canadian Anti-Hate Network which is affiliated with the British so-called “Hope Not Hate” anti-fascist political group.

Our Reasoned Response

Posted: August 28th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Labyrinthos Mythologicus, Nihilism, O9A, Order of Nine Angles, Order of the Nine Angles, The Sinister Dialectic, The Sinister Tradition, The Sinisterly Numinous Tradition | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Our Reasoned Response


Our Reasoned Response

We present here a selection of recent responses – by those associating themselves with the O9A movement (sub-culture) – to the anti-O9A campaign started in early 2019 by a political advocacy group. In contrast to the propaganda of the anti-fascists these responses by O9A folk are measured, reasoned, and provide copious reference to the O9A corpus and to primary O9A texts.

The current focus of the anti-fascist campaign is the allegation that the O9A – according to Labour Member of Parliament Stephanie Peacock – “promotes some of the world’s most hateful, misogynistic beliefs out there, targeting women with the worst forms of cruelty and violence.”

The truth is the exact opposite, as a study of O9A texts such as those listed in primary O9A texts as does The Deofel Quartet, the pro-Lesbian novel Breaking The Silence Down {1} and items such as the 2017 On The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos {2} – as well as the O9A praxis named The Rounwytha, which option is explained in the text The Seven Fold Way Of The Order Of Nine Angles: A Modern Practical Guide {2} where men are the exception, women the rule. In addition, the O9A has always had Sapphic nexions {3}. See also the 2013 article The Rounwytha Way which is included here as an appendix.

The anti-fascist campaign also promotes the common misunderstanding that the O9A has “members” whereas being an esoteric anarchistic-nihilistic movement, or philosophy, {4} it cannot have members only those inspired by that philosophy or those who associate themselves with it.

As described in the text The Order Of Nine Angles: Beyond Nihilism And Anarchism (4), where references are made to Plato and Aristotle,

{quote} It is obvious to those who have studied the O9A corpus from the 1970s to the 2019, 300 page, trilogy titled Seofonfeald Paeth, 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, 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 above text, The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A, 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 and others – not as Plato himself believed as an ‘abstract’ (true, ideal) essence or type of being which is independent of us – but as a posited causal abstraction 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 to achieve a personal and esoteric pathei mathos.
That this O9A view is an expression, a manifestation, a presencing, of nihilism 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. {/quote}

Further, as noted in an article included here, An Example And A Test, regarding the recent deluge of anti-O9A propaganda:

“In Aeonic terms – and in terms of O9A strategy – this is advantageous, and necessary. For the few – the very few – who discover for themselves the reality of, for example, the decades-long Seven Fold Way and of O9A esoteric philosophy, as manifest for example in the Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, are those suitable to begin the quest for Lapis Philosophicus. An individual quest, by a select few, which is the essence of the third phase of O9A Aeonic strategy.”

For as one person recently said in a podcast about the O9A, all the O9A needs is that one person out of a thousand. {5}

For context, we also include a text dating from 2018 which explains the apolitical nature of the Deofel Quartet.

The Order Of Nine Angles: Beyond Nihilism And Anarchism



° The Alleged National Socialism Of The O9A.
° The O9A, Plato, National Socialism, And Nihilism.
° O9A: Beyond Satanism?

Included in the pdf document are three recent – 2019-2020 – texts which explain (i) why the Order of Nine Angles (O9A/ONA) is not a neo-nazi Occult group, (ii) what the O9A mean by the term ‘satanism’, and (iii) why the O9A Occult movement – its esoteric philosophy – has now evolved beyond even their distinct presencing of ‘satanism’, an evolution consistent with the ‘sinister-numinous’ praxis that is the O9A Seven Fold Way with its decades-long individual quest for Lapis Philosophicus, for Wisdom.

These texts thus rebut the propaganda, the allegation, spread about the O9A – by many anti-fascist groups and individuals, and by the media – that it is a neo-nazi Occult group.

Instead, the O9A should be classified – depending on one’s individual interpretation of its esoteric philosophy {1} – as either a nihilistic Occult movement or as an anarchist Occult movement, where by nihilism is meant “rejection of prevailing religious beliefs, moral principles, and laws, together with a practical hostility toward accepted beliefs and/or established institutions,” and where by anarchism is meant “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.”

Our own view, as a nexion, is that the O9A is in fact a blend of both nihilism and anarchism, and represents a necessary evolution of both those causal forms, those “ideas”, thus presencing something new and appropriate for our era, something post-Satanic.

{1} The fundamental O9A “principle of the authority of individual judgment” means that each individual who identifies with the O9A movement – and who seeks for example by means of the Seven Fold Way to discover Lapis Philosophicus – should answer the question about what the O9A means and implies in their own way and in their own duration of causal time.

The principle is explained in the two texts Authority, Learning, and Culture, In O9A Tradition and The Authority Of Individual Judgement: Interpretation And Meaning and both of which are included in the recent (2019) Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, available at

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.”
