Tomorrow is Samhain what ordinary folk call Halloween. For most people Samhain is an occasion to dress up and party, but for me it marks an important point of transition from Autumn (the time of plenty) to Winter (the time of hunger.) Samhain is an example of a liminal point, a type of gateway between two states, in this case between Autumn and Winter in the Northern world.
As a philosopher I reject the concepts of time and space as inventions of the human brain. To explain what exists and how things operate in a situation where time and space is absent, I consider that nature is composed of fractals. I could describe each fractal in terms of the branches and roots of a tree: the potential state of each fractal is the roots; the kinetic state is the branches. What I see in the visible world is only a part of a fractal which is in motion, and all these motions are causing changes in the potential state of the fractal, which then ripples into reflective changes in its kinetic state.
All change, motion and evolution in things in nature is brought about due to a conflict of two opposites, or two fractals that clash like the tectonic plates in the earth. Where the edges of two fractals collide is the liminal point, thus Autumn and Winter being two fractals have collided in time in an event people call Samhain. The same principle applies in space, where the places of Wales and England collide at a liminal point marked by the River Severn, and places where there are bridges and fords between the fractals of Wales and England become particularly potent points, such as Gloucester, a city that is subject of a few significant legends in Celtic mythology.
It is at the liminal points in time and space that I will look for the spirits of place, which become the vehicle by which I weave my magick. If I can combine a liminal point in time such as the Winter Solstice with a liminal point in space such as the River Severn I can weave extremely powerful magick. The spirit of place in the River Severn is impressive by way of how it manifests as the Severn Bore which is significantly impacted by the cycles of the moon and sun in the strength of its tides. As I work with one particular spirit of place, there is usually a lot of communication going on backwards and forwards between me and that spirit, and on most occasions both I and spirit are working together as a team.
Because I can discern fractals and their liminal points, I can usually make a rapid assessment of a situation and weave patterns into the liminal points to achieve my various end states. I have no need for rituals, only a spirit of place, a liminal point, a clear mental design, and then an act of launching that design into the formless darkness at the liminal point as activity.
I never celebrate liminal points such as Samhain, they are a potent tool to use for whatever end state I desire to manifest through my weavings.
It is the nature of Satanism that most Satanists live in two worlds due in part to the prejudices society has against our religion, but also because we see reality differently to most people. For instance I have a Twitter account for my Satanism and another for my life outside of Satanism.
A Luciferian blogger who is a Harry Potter fan refers to those outside of the LHP as muggles. The Luciferian rightly argues that those in the LHP follow a magical path, one that the muggles folk such as Christians find strange and scary. The world of the LHPer is like Diagon Alley in Harry Potter co-existing with but invisible to the muggle world.
It saves me a lot of trouble by keeping a barrier in place between the non-LHP and LHP worlds, for example, apart from a few exceptions I tend only to follow LHP accounts on my Satanist Twitter account. On occasion I have a muggles attack me because they feel upset that they are excluded from my LHP-only social media accounts, those types don’t understand that just as in Harry Potter the worlds that Satanists live in and that of ordinary folk is so different and often is incompatible.
Every individual is entitled to following their religion as longs as they keep their religion out of my face, so whilst I respect Christians to follow their path, I object to anything related to Jesus corrupting the Left Hand Path.
I like Satanism because it is a pure path that embraces reason, senses and experience unlike religions such as Christianity that is based mostly on opinion and lies. Perhaps Christianity was in the first decades a path that did embrace values that I respect such as wisdom based on experience, but it has long lost its way, indulging in fantasy and faith, and is now best consigned to the trash can.
Satanism is the path for mature adults who value the empirical path of experience, senses and reason. In dismay I observe too many Satanists and other LHP-orientated people hanging onto the robes of Jesus by bringing Christianity into the Satanic religion. Why must my path require that black masses, upside down crosses and other Christian junk be part of the Satanic religion? Why do some Satanists need to call themselves reverend, or their groups a “church” or their guide books a bible such as “Satanic Bible?”
Hanging onto Christian baggage is like an adult still holding their moms hand. It is time to let go and embrace a path free of the backward religion of Christianity. It is fine for noobs and children to embrace Reverse Christian reactions and baggage such as those in the Satanic kindergarten of Joy of Satan, but when Satanists are over 18 and with a few years of Satanic experience behind them, I would like to think they passed puberty and embraced a Christian-free path.
The religion of Asatru embraces a path free of Christian baggage, and there is enough of a tradition in Satanism to build a strong path in the same way without Christianity.
As a UK citizen I keep a dispassionate eye on the ongoing US Presidential election, mainly because I may bet on the outcome.
It is interesting that on my Twitter feed for “Satanism” Hillary Clinton gets plenty of mentions of being a Satanist, even though I think Trump has more in common with Satanism on account of him being an individualist, an asshole and a major challenge to the status quo. As an enemy of globalism and the banking system I welcome disruptive elements to the system such as Trump, though I think this crazy maverick having access to nukes and probably sending Satanists to concentration camps is unsettling. Islamic State and Russian President Putin would like Trump to win, probably because Trump is such a divisive figure capable of plunging the US into a new civil war.
With three weeks to go before voting day, I think that the outcome is already known: the US will join the UK in having a female leader in Hillary Clinton. Even if Trump had done everything right, his core vote of the white Christian patriarchal conservative is a demographic too small to get him into the White House. This is a numbers game and the Republicans have failed to reach out to other demographics such as the ever expanding Latino vote. Trump has killed off a large part of the female vote and also the Latino block, even his core Republicans might be voting elsewhere.
It is unfortunate that the US population has to face voting for such a crap set of candidates. If I had the vote I would not vote for either Trump or Clinton, and since the only third choice candidate I know about is Cthulhu, I would vote for the god who promises to end of the world.
If I placed a bet on Clinton today, I would get a 18% return for any investment, which is the only positive outcome I can expect from this election.
McKelvy under his Luciferian name Jacob No was instrumental in bringing together the leading thinkers of Luciferianism such as Michael Ford and Jeremy Crow to form a well defined Luciferian “church” in 2015. The GCOL had a slick web site, clearly defined administrative systems and rules, and a fast growing membership, especially in South America. The GCOL opened their first physical church building in Houston USA.
According to leaders such as Michael Ford things did not feel right about McKelvy, for instance in an initial GCOL ritual McKelvy required that he be robed and that a new Luciferian member bow to him, an action that seriously runs contrary to the idea of the LHP where the individual is their own god, bowing to nobody. McKelvy a former Mormon apparently had not studied Luciferianism, yet most were happy for him to represent them as leader of a Luciferian group.
“My first experience of the original “ceremony” of self-illumination at a July 4th meeting in 2015 (I was asked to attend) he had his “wife” robe him (yes, she did) and then had a potential member “KNEEL BEFORE HIM” and pledge his “allegiance” to the group. I actually left in middle of it as it pissed me off so badly I could not be respectful in his domain any longer.” Michael Ford via Facebook 28 Aug 2016 10.21pm
Early fears expressed by Luciferians such as on the Luciferian Research Society forum that GCOL might become a source of tyranny seemed to manifest in the activities of McKelvy who was acting without consultation with other GCOL board members. Events came to a head when board members insisted on looking at financial records and discovered that McKelvy was using GCOL funds for his own use such as holidays and the purchase of musical instruments.
McKelvy resigned from the GCOL, and the board discovered they were insolvent, unable to pay suppliers for services rendered or honor orders for products paid for. The GCOL board came under fire from those who considered the group should have taken McKelvy to court to recover monies he had apparently misappropriated. From a personal business point of view, if an individual in my business had committed fraud, I would have referred this to the police, and instituted civil court action to recover lost monies.
GCOL today is a shadow of its former self, though it continues to limp on despite a damaged reputation and resignations. Former and current members of GCOL have bitterly clashed over the toxic fallout of McKelvy’s activities and over Luciferian philosophy.
McKelvy recently became a born-again Christian, a propaganda boon to the Christian evangelists, where he is training to become a prophetic pastor, which some cynical observers consider is another financial scam by McKelvy.
According to McKelvy in his public speeches to Christian gatherings, he considered GCOL his army of Satan founded to destroy Christianity and Islam. The ideas of McKelvy contradicts the attitudes of Luciferian GCOL leaders such as Jeremy Crow who promotes Luciferianism as an individual path of empowerment rather than as anything to wage war on other religions.
It remains to be seen if GCOL can overcome dire challenges to its reputation, finances, administration and the ongoing civil war between various former and current members over the direction of Luciferianism.
The year 2016 marked the point when justice came of age and began to move against internet trolls. In former times internet trolls were considered one of the accepted irritants of life on the internet, those drama producing individuals behind many flame wars, the sort most are familiar with on Satanic internet forms such as the trolls of the ONA. The internet troll has now evolved into something like the ones who waged a disturbing war upon a mother and her disabled daughter.
For two years I have fought against Satan Hunters who have targetted innocent people including children with allegations they are involved in Satanic Ritual Abuse. The motivation of these Satan Hunters is revenge, making money and gaining social status through the making of false allegations and the pursuit of those allegations as self-appointed vigilantes against paedophiles who they say are also powerful Satanists raping, killing and eating babies. The Satan Hunters invite through internet postings others to kill named individuals, they plot and orchestrate the abduction of named children, they post the medical reports, images and videos of abused children, to which one said he masturbated over. No longer merely drama seeking, these trolls now target people to destroy them, their lives, their families and livelihoods.
The internet since the beginning has been a place where people have enjoyed the false feeling that what they post came with no consequence, they were anonymous and the internet was a playground that censorship had no place. The internet has grown up, everything and everyone is now interconnected down to their teddy bear, and one posting can instantly be shared a million times to destroy an individual overnight. The internet troll now has the sense of a god, pursuing their targets through their keyboard with real world consequences as the regular reports of suicides reveal.
During 2015 I got to see all the internet troll tactics of the Satan Hunters, the impacts of those tactics, and the limitations of dealing with those tactics. In 2016 I noticed a major change in attitudes by those in legal authority towards internet trolls such as the Satan Hunters; it is difficult to identify any one event which is causing this change, but I think it has been an ongoing set of events that caused the pendulum to change direction.
A child is pursuing a legal action against Facebook over internet trolls posting nude images of her on social media, a case everyone is watching with interest as it will impact all the information merchants around the world. All the social media giants are introducing new strategies in 2016 to deal with internet trolls, something I have noticed impacting Satan Hunters who have had tantrums over the loss of content or account suspensions.
I have lost count of the number of Satan Hunters who have been arrested, sectioned, charged in relation to their internet postings in the Hampstead SRA hoax. The LHP’s own sick clown who hunts Satanists in relation to his SRA fictions Nathaniel Harris has also been pulled in by the police, and may face charges.
The UK attorneys office known as the Crown Prosecution Service has issued guidelines to all the police and its lawyers on internet trolls, and based on these guidelines a consultation is going out to the public for 13 weeks before new laws are formed to end the reign of terror of the internet troll in the UK.
There are many different ideas about memetic magick, here I offer my own.
I consider that memetic magick is a branch of mentalism, the discipline which Derren Brown practices. I also consider that memetic magick is aligned to the ideas of magician Alan Moore the creator of the stories such as V for Vendetta, who considers magick as art.
Influence of memetic magick
Memetic magick can influence how the individual thinks, feels and acts; can influence how others react and treat the individual; or controversially what events happen to the individual, for instance if the individual believes a pigeon will shit on them tomorrow, they might suffer a metaphorical or actual experience tomorrow of being shit upon.
The focus of memetic magic is the human mind
The place of action of memetic magick is in the minds of the individual or of other people. Memetic magick is scientifically sound, those who wish to practice memetic magick will find the study of how the brain and mind works helpful to the application of this skill.
The memetic magician works with mind maps
The individual deals with self, the world and their place in their world via a map in their brain. As an example, when light hits the eye, electrical signals are sent to parts of the brain to process and then throw up an understandable image of what is being sensed, if the image is useful, it is added to existing images in memory, or a new memory is created. Incoming data is usually incomplete, so the brain attempts to fill in blanks to make a complete image. All images in the brain become a map, and at all times the individual is working with this map rather than with what is outside of the brain. The memetic magician is working with these mind maps.
On mind maps and body image
Body image in self is due to a mind map. If an individual suffers loss of limb, the mind map may cause the the individual to believe the limb is still present, they suffer a condition known as phantom limb syndrome. Those who identify as transsexual have a mind map that has a different gender to that which they physically have. Some individuals suffer a fault in their image map so that they believe a limb does not belong to them, or belongs to someone else, this experience causes the victim great distress, which doctors sometimes alleviate by amputating a healthy limb.
Motivation coaches uses memetic magic to change attitudes
Positive thinking coaches work with mind maps by attempting to persuade individuals that they can change their mind maps, and hence their attitudes and lives. Sean Stephenson is a motivational coach who invites people to change their mind maps, in a video he teaches prisoners that prison is only a state of mind.
Mind maps impact how individuals see others
The mind maps of individuals impacts how they see other people. The mind maps of many causes them to only see Hitler in purely negative terms, they will ignore some of Hitler’s positive contributions such as his passion for animal rights. The individual can observe their own selective biases due to their mind maps, seeing only the positive in those they like, and the negative aspects of those they dislike.
Mind maps as paradigms that hold back progress
Groups of people can be caught in a group mind map, a paradigm, that can hold back scientific progress. Ignaz Semmelweis suggested that death rates would fall if doctors washed their hands, a challenge to a paradigm of the time which resulted in him being sectioned in a mental hospital. Artificial intelligence is obsessed with AI that replicates a human being, ignoring the possibilities that plant AI can bring. Everyone is obsessed with the internet of things, a paradigm that in its current form will end in failure for many due to security and complexity issues.
My use of memetic magick against Satan Hunters who promote SRA
I use memetic magick against Satan Hunters who promote Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) narratives. The mind map of a Satan Hunter describes a world that is ruled by Satanists who harm children. Appeals to reason or emotion, nor any threat will stop a Satan Hunter believing and acting upon their SRA narratives. A Satan Hunter however is vulnerable to memetic attacks on their mind maps, rather like an individual can hack into the software of a computer system. I can deliver to the Satan Hunter experiences, images and video that shows Satanists caring for children, or children adopting Satanism, or the Satan Hunter as a clown or monster, all that are contrary to their mind maps. The Satan Hunter have strong reactions to these type of attacks in which they feel uncomfortable, their mind maps shaken, they might obsessively pursue a campaign against me, or against Satanism, or block me. I can in a positive way deploy images to motivate and enhance the mind maps of those that fight SRA, and some images I have created for Hoaxtead are being used by them.
Memetic magick can be used with animals
By studying how the brains work of different animals I can manipulate and enhance their experiences in situations, for instance I tap on a thing rather than point to it if I want to draw the attention of a cat to a thing.
Business uses memetic magick
Advertising, marketing and branding are forms of memetic magick I successfully use in my business.
Memetic magick can be used with other forms of magick
If the individual believes that the human mind can influence events in nature, then memetic magick can be effectively used with other forms of magick.
A Satanist blog post on God had me thinking on this subject today. If I said the cat I am sharing my seat with as I type this post has more claim to being God than the Christian version, I would be closer to the truth. The religions of Islam, Christianity and Judaism go to war with each other over the same God, different name and ideals, but the same fiction that only exists in their heads. My cat however is real, she empirically proves her existence by demonstration, observation and experience. Her creative capacity might only stretch to being a pain in the ass, but she has a greater influence over this Satanist than the Christian God does. Indeed, the cat having claimed this human body and soul, considers anything I own hers and requires sharing, and she has the power to move this Satanist with the Word of God – a meow. The grace of God this cat shares with me is also empirically proven and far more preferable: her fleas; drool; cat hair; and cat smell that signals to other cats that I am on the side of good (cats) and not evil (dogs.)
In fact I am not a cat person, or a pet owning person, but I think a universe ruled by a cat is preferable and fun than a grumpy, whinging, bullying tyrant such as the Christian God. I like to annoy the person who owns this cat by considering the philosophy that we exist only in a dream of this cat, the manifestation of a feline playthings and desires. Cats have in history had a remarkable influence on humanity, there is a cat god Bast, and they were worshipped in Egypt.
I consider that God is Nature. Empirically Nature is provable, and has all the qualities of God: creativity; ultimate authority; sum of all things; eternity; limitlessness. What Nature lacks compared to the Christian God is a mind, it won’t judge and it is indifferent to the existence of me or humanity.
In philosophy is a concept known as a holon, a thing that paradoxically exists simultaneously as a whole and a part, for instance the acorn that contains the oak tree, and the oak tree that contains the acorn, is an example of a holon. My cat is a part of Nature, the cat and Nature is a holon. If Nature and my cat is a holon, and Nature is God, then my cat is God. Next time the religious salespeople come to my door, I will introduce them to God: my cat.
A famous saying of Heraclitus “strife is justice” provides a useful introduction for my Satanic observations on power and control. A common theme Heraclitus explores is how change, motion and evolution of all things in nature is driven by a war of two or more opposites. Heraclitus considers if there was no conflict of opposites present, then nothing could exist, since this opposition joins two opposites together in a new harmonious thing. This is so when you consider the motion of your body requires muscles and bones acting in opposition to each other, or the uneven chemical opposition of cells causing electrical firing of neurons allowing your heart to beat and your brain to think.
The strife of opposites is the principle rule of nature
The conflict of opposites is the number one rule of nature, everything that exists depends upon the active manifestation of this principle rule at all times. The moment the opposing elements of rain and sun end, so does the rainbow. With this rule in mind, when the individual comes into conflict with another individual or with nature, the worst action they can do is seek to control, dominate or disempower the opposing challenger, for this leads to the loss of an opposite, and no opposition means no motion, change or evolution. I vaguely remember it noted that when Rome eliminated their principle rival Carthage, it was the beginning of the end of Rome. Eliminating the opposite, which creates a state of stasis and peaceful stagnation, won’t automatically cause everything involved to vanish, it results in disintergration, decay and death over a period of time. Nature needs a state of conflict, so if the individual destroys an external opposite, the individual usually turns in on itself, and conflict arises within, leading to other external agencies the opportunity to take advantage.
The love of nature for the war of opposites
Because nature loves to move and change, it will push for conflict, and so a controlling individual or agency will expend a vast amount of resources fighting against nature, an ultimately fruitless exercise. Strictly controlled regimes, those such as communist North Korea and former USSR, seeks uniformity, stasis and strictly defined linear motions, historically are manifested as sick, underachieving and inefficient nations, doomed to fail at some point in spectacular fashion.
Control of nature causes dire results
The hubris of humanity which approaches nature from a controlling and dominating point of view has manifested a global environmental crisis that could potentially end human civilisation inside a hundred years. A classic example of humanity seeking control of nature with dire results was communist China between 1958 and 1960 when it encouraged its population to slaughter sparrows; this succeeded in a proliferation of insects including locusts which attacked the harvests, a situation that contributed to a famine killing 20 million of the population.
Individuals who seek to control and feel powerful
My personal studies of individuals who harm the vulnerable, including children and animals, reveals a common pattern of a need for control and a feeling of power. Such individuals are getting their feelings of power through their sexual and violent activities, which encourages the production of hormone adrenaline, which works in conjunction with the brain structure the amydgala. Rather like a drug high adrenaline is short lived and the individual crashes in a depressive low, a pattern emerges that they need greater and greater adrenaline fixes through increasingly violent and sexual acts. These type of activities requires the disempowerment of an opposing individual, which is a classic feature of paedophile activities involving the grooming and violation of children.
In situations where power is shared, where both opposing sides feel empowered in an activity, different brain structures and hormones are in play, especially oxytocin, and the effects of feeling powerful are longer without the depressive low side effect.
Summary – the good natural strategy
In summary, the war of opposites is a necessary requirement for change, motion and evolution to happen. The action that will lead to positive outcomes is the one that looks for the harmony between two opposites that allows all opposites to remain in play, both empowered and both benefiting. How the harmony is found is down to the individual playing around with strategies, through reason, experience and the senses working out the right path to take in the situation.
The difference between the Satanist and those described as sheep is that most Satanists calculate the benefits and liabilities of following an action, whilst the sheep unthinkingly follow the fashions or trends of where all the other sheep are running to.
In Newcastle UK today a man was arrested by police dressed as a clown, and on arrest he was discovered carrying a “bladed article.” Men chasing after children, regardless of if they are dressed as clowns or not, are going to excite the attentions of the police, or get in a hostile confrontation with someone. This clown was following a global trend of dressing as a clown and frightening people.
Some of these clowns create videos of them chasing after people with fake weapons, and because some people in recent history have been brutally murdered in my part of London in random attacks, I will attack and ask questions afterwards anyone chasing after me, a situation that can only end badly for all involved.
All these clowns are mindlessly following a trend, because everyone else is doing it. They do not think about the consequences, the end states, of their activities for themselves or those they target for the lulz.
In my local High Street, the trend is about opening an electronic cigarette shop, the area is swarming with zombie clones thinking they are going to make a lot of money, because they see everyone else doing it. Similarly, the trend of start ups that run from a standard template of building a business around a mobile phone app. Few of these sheep entering into business have the faintest idea how to run a business, they merely copy everyone else, and their ignorance is plain to see asking the most basic questions on business forums.
I currently have a trade mark being registered, and my letter box is full of scam letters from zombie clones trying to persuade me if I pay a lot of money to them, that they will enter me on their super-special databases and publications, a service that offers no legal protections to my trade marks.
There is no harm in following the crowd, for instance it is probably a wise move to evacuate an area with everyone else if a tsunami is on the way, but the Satanist in my opinion is the individual who moves based on calculated reasoning rather than simply following everyone else herding off on a trend or fashion together.
Rather than following the fashion of buying expensive branded clothing such as Nike, I wear my own branded clothing with my own specially commissioned logo. What sets the Satanist apart from the rest of humanity is they manifest their unique individuality rather than become a mass clone like the sheep.
