Distinguishing The O9A

There are several significant features germane to the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and which separate the O9A from other past and contemporary manifestations of the Occult in the lands of the West, be those manifestations described or classified by others (or self-described or classified by their adherents) as Left Hand Path, Satanist, Hermetic, Right Hand Path, Pagan, or Sorcerist. {1}

It is most indicative that these O9A features – serving as they do to distinguish the O9A – have seldom if ever been commented upon, in a rational in-depth manner, by the majority of people who, past and present, have pontificated about or who have made comments about the O9A. Indicative for a variety of reasons, such as lacking an extensive knowledge of O9A texts; such as having no access to O9A aural tradition; and such as their focus being on some exoteric aspect of the O9A, for example human culling, O9A self-identification as being Satanist, or the polemics that some O9A associates have sometimes indulged in as a basal part of the O9A sinister dialectic. In addition, many of those who have commented on or make remarks about the O9A seem to have lost their way in, or become confused by, the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus {2}.

{1} As an example of the Left Hand Path there is Aquino’s Temple of Set. As an example of modern Satanism there is Howard Stanton Levey. As an example of Hermeticism, there is the nineteenth century Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. As an example of modern paganism there is the Wicca manufactured by the likes of Gerald Gardener. As an example of the modern Sorcerist tradition there is Aleister Crowley, derived as his tradition was from the sorcery propounded in medieval grimoires and from the qabalism of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

{2} The term – its etymology and meaning – is described in the essay The Labyrinthos Mythologicus of The O9A.
