I will be offline two months

I have today decided that I will be going offline two months with regards to my activity with Satanism.  I am running my own business, and circumstances have reached a critical point which means I have to put all my focus upon stewarding my business through challenging waters.

I wish all my readers a successful and healthy start to 2017.  See you all in April 2017.


Six Satanic Questions

Fellow Satanists have posted and answered six Satanic questions here and here.  I thought I would do the same.  What would your answers be to these questions?

Six Satanic Questions

Six Satanic Questions

1. How has Satanism changed me?

I feel liberated, Satanism broke the chains of slavery to restriction and external authority.  I learnt that good/evil were subjective judgements based upon a set of rules.  I learned to question, to see the difference between my values, ideas and rules and those of external authorities.  Satanism gave me a boundary between the sovereignty of individuality and the mindless slavery of group-minded mediocrity.  I was no longer encumbered by the emotional baggage of the approval, judgements and opinions of external authorities.  I could say “no” without feeling guilty or caring about what others thought if it was not in my interests to agree to a demand on my time, energy and money to assist someone else at the expense of my self.  Satanism motivates me to challenge limits, and transgress limiting boundaries that I or others impose upon me.

2. What is Satan to me?

I see Satan (and Lucifer) as being the faces of the same archetype that represents the best qualities of the human species.  In myth Satan, Lucifer, Prometheus and Enki are names of the same archetype, one who as a culture hero symbolised the human species in its rebellion against external authorities, be it a tyrant god such as Zeus or God, or against the wild hostile forces of nature.  In myth it was the human species that ate the forbidden fruit, and built the great Tower of Babel to be greater than God.  The archetypes such as Prometheus and Enki always championed humanity by stealing fire or other gifts from the external authority to give to mankind.  It is humanity who dares to defy death, create life and plough into the dark secrets of nature to spin a reality akin to a god.  Satan casts out the external authority, restriction and ignorance.  Each individual becomes Satan by embracing the black flame that is Satan, manifesting their will to action and their choice as sovereign authorities in their own lives in defiance of the restricting and conformist tyranny of the external authority.  By becoming Satan the individual becomes their own god, expressing the best qualities of humanity: wisdom (born of experience); knowledge (born of the senses); reason (coming to conclusions based on cause and effect, the probability of truth based upon common patterns that are observable, demonstrated or experienced in nature, society and self); creativity (the perception, building and action of patterns); and sustainability (action in harmony with nature.)

3. Am I going to hell?

It depends upon definitions of what hell is.  In some myths hell was seen as an underworld which all the dead go, akin to Hades, and depending upon the individual belief in life after death, this was the certain destination of all the dead.  Burning in everlasting fire, is referred to in Egyptian mythology, an ancient society built on group-minded conformity to an established state religion, that used the same fear of hell fire to instill obedience in their followers as do Christian authorities today.  Nobody who writes and speaks about the threat of burning in hell has ever seen or experienced such a place, so there is no empirical knowledge that they can hold as a truthful authority for their claims.  I define fire as alike to wisdom, which is born of the suffering of experience, so as Satanism is a path of wisdom, then fire is to the Satanist that water is to a fish.  The little evidence of life after death, such as the memory of children of past lives, suggests there is no such place as the fiery hell that the Christians like to terrorize the ignorant with.   The notion of burning in hell fire gained popularity in the middle ages with the production of Dantes Inferno, that gave a graphic visualization of hell as a place of torture, reflective of the love of pain and torture of their citizens by religious and state authorities in that barbaric age.  I doubt I will be burning in hell as the ignorant fear-mongering Christians claim.

4. Do you consider yourself good or evil?

I reject the moralistic definitions of good and evil, the subjective judgements based upon a set of rules as delusional.  I use an objective philosophy called teleology to determine if a thing or action is good or bad.  Teleology proposes that everything in nature has reason, so that all things have an ultimate design or end result that determines its function and nature, for instance a knife has the function or end state as cutting things.  Using teleology I can say a thing is good if it is able to carry out its function, and its action is good if that action allows or increases its function.  A blunt knife is a bad knife, because it is no longer functional; an action that blunts a knife is a bad action, because it impairs the function of the knife to cut things.  If a Satanist is following their own true nature, that is a good action, and they are being a good Satanist.  The nature or function of the Satanist is individualistic, so once they define their personal qualities of Satanism, they may determine the good and bad of their actions and individual Satanic state.

5. What do I think about other religions?

I consider a religion to be a worldview that defines the self, their world and the place of self in that world.  The religion can be both Left Hand Path or Right Hand Path, defined by if the individual retains their personal choice and will to action in that religion when challenged by an external authority.  I dislike stupidity, laziness and greed, so if a religion creates these traits in an individual, I become hostile.  I love and respect the religion that embraces wisdom, knowledge, reason, creativity and sustainability as part of its belief system.

6. What important lessons has Satan taught me recently?

Difficult to say, the Satanic path is a path of learning of multiple skills, insights and experience, involving bits of everything every day.  Certain themes emerge over time, for instance my love for the potential of AI to take over some of the functions of human society, such as the running of hospitals, since I am so appalled at the laziness, stupidity and greed that has made such hospitals a place of death and sickness rather than health.  Satan has made sustainability a major issue for me, for instance, if war is the reality of nature, I reject peace and balance as delusional in human society, so I am no longer fooled by the campaigns for peace by ignorant campaigners.  Satan has taught me to take a harsh and aggressive position with the stupid, I would wipe out Islamic State without any mercy; and the same use of independent AI technology to protect elephants, killing those that poach them.  Satan gave me the insight that places for wildlife must be set aside banning humans from entering them, protected by AI guardians.

Reflections on Halloween

It is the day after Halloween, some call Samhain.  Halloween is one of only two annual events that Satanists seem to collectively mark with any significance, though how they mark it is different for each Satanist.  This Satanist marks the event with the rare purchase of a lottery ticket, a symbolic act of sticking two fingers up at religious morality through the act of gambling.

For most people Halloween is an excuse to dress up, decorate their gardens and have a party.  My local community seems with each year to get more involved in the Halloween festival, decorating their gardens ever more extravagantly a week in advance of the event.  For most people, the symbols and meaning of Halloween is lost, a disconnection that raised some amusing observations: the shop raising money for the local hospice decorated with realistic skulls; the reception area of a nursing home for the elderly decorated with full size grim reapers.

I personally do not mark Halloween with much significance, other than it marks the start of winter in the North of this world.  Nature celebrated Halloween in its own way, a beautiful orange sunrise in the morning, an orange sunset at night as I raced on my bike in the growing darkness past ancient ruins shrouded in mist.  On this first day of winter, and for the next three months, I will be focused on decluttering, ending projects, eliminating dead and useless things, associations or relationships.  Winter is the time of endings.

For animistic and some modern cultures Halloween is a time of remembering deceased ancestors. The ancient Celts would bring out the bones of favoured ancestors from a communal shrine, often skulls, and position them in their own seats at the banqueting table.  The ancestors would be given food and drink, as the community retold the stories in a moment of remembering and celebration linking ancestors, the living and the descendants together in an unbroken narrative.

Halloween is one of four annual between moments betwixt the changing of seasons when the boundary between the material and spiritual worlds are at their closest.  These moments are when the living can reconnect with their ancestors, to seek their support for good health, harvest and prosperity; importantly, to hold on to the narrative, memory and culture of the identity of a community, tribe or family.

There is nothing sinister, evil or demonic about Halloween, it has and always been about honoring and remembering ancestors.  It is a shame that Halloween has for many been demeaned and commercialized to become devoid of meaning in the modern world..

Order of Nine Angles (ONA) confirm they are not Satanists

Satanicviews comment

A representative of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA) has responded to our recent Satanicviews blog post about them via one of their blogging sites, and confirms that they are not Satanists.  The article is as below:


As the ONA confirm they are not Satanists, a confirmation that can be found in various other ONA sources as well, it becomes unnecessary for us to offer arguments that ONA are not Satanists, though we still plan such arguments to deal with Reverse Christianity.  We offer their full article as below, link as per above, under the Creative Commons (CC) copyright license which the ONA tend to ascribe to in the distribution of their information.  We will respond to issues raised in that ONA article in a future post.

ONA article in response to Satanicviews

How Dumb They Really Are? (some insignificant comments about significant amount of mundane misconceptions)

Recently, We came across an article (Is ONA and RC Satanism?) written by the mundane Satanist who already wrote a couple of articles regarding ONA on previous occasions – like, for example, that one about nonsense such as “disbanding  ONA” etc.  This nonsense was well enough addressed by some other people, back then.  Now, the author, seems to be accepting their previous nonsense about “disbanding” ONA as the nonsense it was/is, because they treat ONA as still existing, being that they argue about/with it.

What fascinates Us, over and over again, when We read stuff like these, is the fact how shallow mundanes are and how they are incapable of grasping anything ONA – sometimes trying very hard to squeeze it into their narrow views, into their little black and white worlds. Also, We believe how they never bother to read numerous ONA writings dealing with, and explaining their usual misconceptions. Article in question is filled with these usual misconceptions and gives away very uninformed view of the Order of Nine Angles (like previous “disbanding” nonsense wasn’t good enough clue). This implies that the author either never honestly studied ONA (which takes some effort and time), or they simply lack any intellectual and emphatic skills to successfully fulfill such a task, as it is the case with the most mundanes.

We have no illusions that We will ever enlighten one of these characters by writing “responses” such as this one, so this is in no way serious attempt of arguing them or refuting some of their claims – it mainly serves as an example (amusing one) for those who are honestly interested in ONA – an example of how blind and clueless mundanes are.  What is especially discouraging in this case is the fact that comparing ONA with, and leveling it down to RC (reverse Christianity) is even greater misconception than previous “disbanding” nonsense. To be honest, some forms used by ONA, as presented in Black Book of Satan and similar works may look like something comparable with RC. However, these are only “forms” – not the ONA itself. Practical and esoteric meanings and purpose of these forms were  elaborated in different writings of the Order and its affiliates, many, many times. But, as we already mentioned, these Satanist are not even reading such material and/or are incapable of grasping it. There is one thing about which author of the article in question is right: ONA is not Satanism, or more precisely, ONA is not just Satanism:

The Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) is a sinisterly-numinous mystic tradition: it is not now and never was either strictly satanist or strictly Left Hand Path, but uses ‘satanism’ and the LHP as ‘causal forms’; that is, as techniques/experiences/ordeals/challenges (amoral and otherwise) in a decades-long personal anados to engender in the initiate both esoteric, and exoteric, pathei mathos, and which pathei mathos is the beginning of wisdom. – O9A 101, Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition

Let us examine some of the statements written in this article from satanicviews blog:

The ONA is a philosophy invented by David Myatt in the 1970’s who synthesized his white supremacist and occult interests into a worldview that has been extensively added to by himself and his followers.

If nothing else this is oversimplifying of origins and  history, and very nature of ONA. According to Order’s own writings ONA IS philosophy, but philosophy of Anton Long. Now, those Satanist would instantly try to simplify this one as well by asserting how Anton Long is actually David Myatt. Well, Anton Long is not, nor he ever was a real person. From one perspective it is just a nym, evidently used by various people over decades – as suggested by some academics and some ONA adherents (and even some Satanist). It was certainly used by Richard Moult, Chloe Ortega, Richard Stirling and other individuals. From this perspective Anton Long is some sort of fictional character (this, again being oversimplifying, of course) whose traits and life story are compiled by bits of traits and lives of all the people who ever animated this character, who ever acted as him, plus some additional necessities required for such a creation. From yet another perspective, Anton Long is a Myth, archetypal figure, a magickal tool/ being, with certain functions and purposes.  ONA is philosophy of Anton Long – this means that, if we want to tie this philosophy and this name with any real person, we don’t have to tie it exclusively with Myatt, we can also say that ONA is a philosophy of Richard Moult, or Chloe Ortega, or anyone else who acted as Anton Long or helped with building of this character in some other way. We will not weight amount or quality of these influences – we are just saying that there never was only one real person behind Anton Long and his philosophy. This is one of the reasons why David Myatt always was, and still is able to claim that he is not Anton Long.
For long time now David Myatt has his own philosophy through which he mostly rejected his “white supermacist (again, very uninformed view of Myatt’s interpretation of National-Socialism) and occult interests”. Not only this – he also wrote in very insightful (thus honest) way about why and how he rejected his previous views and ideas, creating very personal philosophy which needs no body of followers in any way. Even if we assume, as it is widely accepted, that David Myatt was original animator behind  Anton Long, we cannot say that the two are the same. One is a real person, human being – the other … a being of some other kind.

The ONA is largely an incoherent, impractical and rambling philosophy full of hocus pocus and pseudo philosophical ideology with a strong focus of incitement to killing people, specifically their obsession with culling and human sacrifice.

“Incoherent” in this case simply means too complex and incomprehensible for the mind and soul of mundane Satanist. They see this philosophy as “incoherent”, contradictory and what else not, only because it is non-linear and is not depending upon anything  which common mundane can put in some tiny box of their “understanding” and stick a label to it. The fact is that their limitations are not allowing them to see the the big picture, so they perceive just bits and pieces of ONA, here and there, thus experiencing it as “incoherent”. Yes, We know that when they characterize ONA in this way, they are simply irritated by its elusiveness. Also, apparent incoherence and/or contradictions serve certain purposes, of which some are practical and others esoteric. You need a honest effort to put pieces together, to connect dots into coherent picture. This also being a part of the Way and of the process of learning.

We wonder what “Impractical” exactly means here? It is well known that entire ONA philosophy is very practical and oriented towards very practical action, deeds and goals. We remember another mundane Satanist writing about how he believes ONA is not real, simply because it expects from its adherents fulfillment of tasks fitting for Hercules. We imagine this Satanist being some obese, pimple-covered, American to whom climbing up the stairs seems to be a job for Hercules. If you ever read about physical requirements and training routines of some military special forces, you’ll realize that ONA tasks are child’s play in comparison to those. Some ONA tasks may look extremely difficult and impractical only to extremely weak, indulging Satanist who are often incapable of being functional and practical in their everyday mundane lives. Besides physical tasks what else one might find impossible or impractical? Grade rituals which demands no special requirements, items, ceremonies, formulas, or anything except your strong will to endure them? Insight Roles? Self-honesty (this one is probably very impractical for mundane Satanist)? Discipline (again, very impractical for this indulgent kind)? Culling (as well, so impractical for these obedient sheeple)? What?
When they say “impractical” they probably mean – hard, dangerous, risky, something which implies moving out of their comfort zone and/or shattering of their illusions about the world, endangering their safety. We guess that some of them, being occult fetishists they are, deem as “practical” some old-aeon fantasy systems, or some dusty grimoires with formulas requiring a hair from cross-eyed rabbit whose mother was eaten by the limping wolf at specific time of a year. At least you never hear them criticizing such nonsense this loudly. You never hear them criticizing deluded JoS kids who are killing Jehowa’s angels and making love with their demons every day, and what else not. They will accept them as Satanist. But they will always criticize ONA. Why? – Because they feel threatened. Although ONA is not, nor it ever was strictly Satanic – it actually embodies the very essence of what Satan is, as well as it puts Satanism into proper practical and esoteric context. All of this threatens mundane Satanist because it simply shakes and erode their safe fantasy game, it reveals lies they are convincing each others of, and reveals them for being sheeple they are.

Due to its incoherence and impracticality the ONA is unable to survive in its own right as a philosophy, so survives as like a parasite, trying to incorporate itself into hosts such as religions and political movements, but always with the clear agenda of inciting harm to life and property.

(More precise description of ONA would be a “virus” – highly adaptable, shape-shifting virus) At this point We realized that we are dealing with probably the most uninformed view of ONA out there (and which is, sadly even applauded by a number of sheeple disguised as Satanist).
Anyone who posses some esoteric understanding and some Aeonic perspective, should understand manipulation of religious, political, occult and art forms in context. Besides this, ONA possess that unbounded essence which can survive and live and be expressed through any form, already existent, or the new ones created. It can also survive with almost no form, wordless, shapeless, but simply Known and lived by some. Where would be any other group/philosophy/order/ religion without their strictly defined set of rules and forms? ONA adherent can be literally anything outwardly – they can be Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Satanist, Pagan, Atheist, whatever you think of… but still they’ll be ONA. Can you claim this about anything else out there? Any strain of Satanism or some other philosophy/ religion/(sub-)culture? Same as an individual adherent is using such religious, political, occult and art forms for the sake of their own development, for the deepening of their insights and furthering of their own goals, through manipulation of such forms – ONA uses these forms for her own development and for the furthering of Aeonic goals. ONA doesn’t depend upon these forms and can change them as one changes their clothes. The person wearing different clothes is the same person, like the ONA is the same (some)thing under different guises. This simplicity is not understood by mundane Satanist and similar species, as they actually depend upon outer forms very much, and the very identity of the most of them depends even upon the clothes they are wearing. If they are not wearing black, or some satanic jewelry, or some satanic tattoo, their “satanism” will be suspicious. And this is the case with any religion/movement/(sub-)culture out there. Slaves of forms…

The ONA however had some success with Satanism, and convinced many Satanists for a while that ONA was a form of Satanism.

ONA, actually never tried to convince anyone that it is a form of Satanism. But We think this one is clear from what was written here previously, and elsewhere over the years. ONA just uses Satanism as a form. There is a difference. However, ONA IS Presencing of Satan, even if this is not exclusively accomplished through forms of Satanism as such.

Satanicviews in future blog posts will offer several objective arguments which will clearly show that Reverse Christianity and the Order Nine Angles has never been and will never be Satanism

Why bothering with providing arguments for the claim that ONA is not and has never been “Satanism”, if Order itself clearly supports this fact? This Satanist in his article even writes: “As ONA adherents freely admit ONA is not Satanism (…)”(??). Again, why bothering with this then? They can simply copy that quote from O9A 101 we provided here and they can rest their case. Every time when something like this surface up, We wonder – “How dumb they really are?”.

Finally, if ONA, in their opinion, is akin to Reverse Christianity, what’s about those mundane Satanist who writes dumb stuff like this latest article on satanicviews? What about their law-abiding-love -your -neighbor -and- his- property – Satanism? Is it not akin to Christianity itself? This type of Magian-muppet Satanism was well characterized in many ONA writings, such is the one provided here for the further reading (i.e. “A Heretical Satanism” as a part of influence-innovation compilation).

Fear not, dear dumb Satanist. ONA doesn’t want to take your mundane satanism from you. ONA doesn’t need your mundane satanism, nor it’s trying to fit into it, or to dominate it, or whatever you might be thinking it’s doing. And, again – you don’t even have to prove how ONA is not Satanism. Admittedly it is not. Just cool down and learn to make, and appreciate some subtle differences: ONA is not Satanism – but there IS ONA Satanism. ONA is not Satanism – but it IS and it has been, and it will be Presencing of Satan.

Christians caused the creation of Satanic Temple

It is a scientific truth that for every action there is a reaction, a fact worthy of noting to those many Christians in the USA who complain about the Satanic Temple and their Satanic statue.  Christians in recent years had been particularly aggressive in pushing their religion into the classroom and into the US governmental institutions, threatening the sacred founding principle of the separation of church and state.

It was predictable based upon action, reaction, that there would be those who wanted to retain the separation of state from religion who would rise up to oppose the religious institutionalization of America. A couple of young free thinkers, who were not necessarily Satanists, saw Satanism as a useful vehicle to oppose the Christian hijacking of the USA, and founded the Satanic Temple.  Mixing fun, politics and satire, through a series of stunts the Satanic Temple gathered under their banner both Satanists and non-Satanists in a campaign that captured the imagination of the media and those opposed to the invasion of religion into schools and government, eclipsing even the media influence of the Church of Satan, to become the main voice of Satanism to the eyes of the media.

Over the previous weekend young Christians gathered to pray in their hundreds at the controversial Ten Commandments Monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol.  “It seems like our whole country is kicking God out,” they complained, ignoring the beautiful reality that the USA is a nation of many faiths, where people desire the liberty of living without a narrow interpretation of Christianity being forced upon them in government and the classroom. The Christians stated their aim of their prayer meeting was to protest against “Oklahoma City and the state of Oklahoma seemingly becoming a focal point for Satanism,” the irony being that there would never have been a Satanic statue proposed for the state capitol if they had not infringed the separation of church and state by building a religious monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol.

It is thanks to these Christians that the dull embers of Satanism was given new life by their own actions, which has given birth to an interesting new chapter in Satanism which Satanicviews describes as a form of political Satanism.

Satanic Temple statue is unveiled

Satanic statue

Satanic Temple finally revealed their Satanic statue to the world in an unveiling event in Detroit.

A beautiful statue of the Satanic Baphomet was revealed shortly before midnight on Saturday at an industrial building near the Detroit River by the Satanic Temple.  A well attended party at what was a secret venue for the unveiling marked the long awaited unveiling of the statue at an event without incident.  Hundreds of Satanists and supporters attended the event, heavily outnumbering the few dozen Christian protesters.  Photographs and press statements were later released to the world media on what was a critically successful event and final version of the statue.
