The Former Polemical O9A

For several years, beginning around 2009 ev and ending around 2015 ev, some of the few people knowledgable about the esotericism of the Order Of Nine Angles, and privy to its aural traditions, engaged in Internet discussions with people curious about or – more typical – engaged in Internet discussions with those critical of the O9A. Some of these O9A associates used their real-world names – such as Kerri Scott, June Boyle, Morena Kapiris – while others chose to remain anonymous and used Internet nyms such as Dark Logos and PointyHat.

These discussions occurred on various “Facebook” groups, on forums devoted to Levey-type ‘satanism’, {1} on the comments section of various weblogs, and on forums devoted to the Occult and/or the Western Left Hand Path. As befits the causal nature of the Internet many of those FB groups, forums, and weblogs have, years later, been deleted or have simply been sent, by design or otherwise, to /dev/null

In addition, many of those critical of the O9A, or accused by some O9A folk of belonging to the o9a-pretendu-crowd, have as of 2018 ev vanished from the Internet.

Oft-times the O9A folk involved were being dialectical and polemical, as they sometimes publicly declaimed: “A dialectical/polemical text to amuse some, to annoy others, and to provide what some others will assume is evidence for their existing opinion about the O9A. For toying with, and confusing, mundanes is a game, played for fun.”

Oft-times the O9A folk involved were all, amusingly and predictably, accused by the conspiracy-minded of being a certain Mr Myatt in disguise.

Such time-limited Internet discussions and polemics – often now no longer available – served a useful O9A purpose, marking as they did the transition from Phase/Iteration Two of O9A Aeonic Strategy to Phase/Iteration Three {2}{3} and serving as they did to recruit a few – and only a necessary few – to begin their own quest along the O9A Seven Fold Way.

For, as noted at the Oxonia Sunedrion, 122 yfayen,
                  “The chauvinism that male specimens of Homo Hubris possess for women should be a particular target. An aspect of this will be our championing of culture, manners, learning, and so on – that is, of a certain noble, civilized, aristocratic, attitude where there is a disdain for uncultured, ill-mannered, vulgar plebs and their antics. This in itself will aid us in recruiting more people in academia, the artistic professions, and suitable officers in the military, the police.”

Yet a few extracts from such time-limited Internet discussions and polemics, survive. Which survivals may be historically interesting, for both academic scholars and the few cultured individuals who empathize with what Western pagan (Greco-Roman) culture meant, means, and implies. {4}

A survival of those times is the footnote section of a November 2014 O9A article Documenting Plebeian Physis In Modern Occultism, {5} which footnotes served to illustrate how some O9A folk were different from the uncultured O9A critic-crowd:

O9A Polemic

Agios o Baphomet as we of O9A Iteration Three now chant, in the hope of presencing our female, sacrificial, Dark Goddess.

{2} This Aeonic Strategy is outlined in O9A texts such as https://wyrdsister.files.wordpress.com/2018/12/o9a.gct-v2.pdf

The phrase καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ὄφις τῇ γυναικί Οὐ θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖσθε explains why the title Geneseos Caput Tertium was mimetically used.

{5} The article is included as Appendix 3 in the now somewhat dated pdf compilation published in 2015, Bewraying The Order of Nine Angles.

The compilation is dated because because it contains polemical texts and old versions of texts since updated and revised. As such, the compilation may be of some interest to some interested in or researching the O9A as an example of how the O9A over the years and decades changes and evolves and sometimes issues revised versions of older texts.
