Samhain an example of a liminal point

bridge-at-a-liminal-point

Bridges, gates, caves, doors, harbours, train stations are all liminal points where things begin and end.  The points between the seasons such as Samhain, or solar changes such as Winter Solstice, or lunar points such as full and new moons, or between sunrise and sunset are liminal points in time. There is always a spirit of place at a liminal point, and it is a fierce point of strife between two or more opposing fractals. Any road between two towns has a spirit of place that folk in Britain call the shucks, these hounds I call upon to protect me when I am travelling between places.

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.

A Satanist living in two worlds

church-of-satan-ritual

This Church of Satan ritual with a child of Anton Lavey would be a cause of many misunderstandings to the mind of a not-Satanist “muggle”, a reason why there needs to be a barrier between the LHP and non-LHP worlds.

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.

Kick Jesus out of Satanism, please

child_baphomet

Lets have a Satanism free of Christian baggage.

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.

A UK Satanic view on US Presidential election

cthulhu_cultists

Presidential US candidate Cthulhu would get my vote if I could vote.

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.

Former GCOL leader becomes a Christian

fall_of_a_luciferian

The fall of a Luciferian leader Jacob No (Jacob McKelvy)

A fellow blogger made me aware that former Greater Church of Lucifer (GCOL) founder and leader Jacob No also known as Jacob McKelvy has converted to Christianity.

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.

Justice catches up with internet trolls

internet_troll

2016 marked the year it legally became open season on internet trolls in the UK.

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.

A basic introduction to memetic magick

girl-with-no-horns-and-satan

This image has been effectively used by me against Satan Hunters who promote narratives of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) which offers a positive relationship of a child with Satanism, this challenges and shakes their mind map narratives, they find these attacks upsetting and uncomfortable.  In of itself this memetic attack has limited impact, but as part of an overall campaign where you want a Satan Hunter to do or say something that destroys them or their message in the eyes of other people, they are powerful attacks.

There are many different ideas about memetic magick, here I offer my own.

Mentalism 

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.
