Order Of Nine Angles

° ° ° ° ° ° 

The following quotation, in my view, expresses the essence and raison d’être of the Order of Nine Angles.

<begin quote>
The Order of Nine Angles (O9A/ONA) is an intellection: the particular understanding of one person, the pseudonymous Anton Long, who melded (i) inherited and learned ancient pagan, and occult, traditions – British, and Hellenic hermeticism/mysticism – with (ii) the pathei-mathos resulting from his own decades-long (1972-2011) anados (ἄνοδος) along the hermetic Seven Fold Way, and who thus produced a unique signification expressed by means of a new esoteric philosophy and by praxises that, esoterically and exoterically, presence that esoteric philosophy.

What, then, are the essence and the raison d’être of this esoteric philosophy?

1. The essence is a consciously undertaken pathei-mathos, and thus the personal learning, by individuals – with the consequent internal (‘alchemical’) change in (and evolution of) the physis (φύσις) of the individual – that can result from consciously undertaking both esoteric and practical exeatic experiences conventionally described as both ‘numinous’ and ‘sinister’. Thus, abstractions (which impute an illusive/pretentious ‘knowing’) are replaced by a direct and personal understanding sans denotatum.

2. The raison d’être is Aeonic: to, via a new logos, subvert (and eventually replace) existing causal forms (including the State) thus enabling new ways of living (and/or of a renaissance of older, more pagan and cultural, ways of living) with the consequent change (development and evolution) of the physis of human beings. A subversion and a replacement not for any altruistic or idealistic reasons, but because such subversion and replacement are a natural consequence of (inherent in the physis of) that logos, manifest as the logos is in the O9A code of kindred-honour.

Thus – given this essence and raison d’être, and given that the esoteric philosophy is manifest in the corpus of Anton Long’s writings from the 1970s to 2011 and not in any one or two, specific, works – it is hardly surprising that the O9A has been misunderstood and misrepresented (i) by the latter- day satanist crowd, (ii) by the illiterati and the pseudo-intellectuals who infest modern occultism and especially satanism and the Left Hand Path (LHP), and (iii) by others who have only made a perfunctory study of the O9A corpus.

Today, and in the last few years, we have had to add to the list of those who have misunderstood and misrepresented the O9A both anti-fascists and journalists, because anti-fascists, and well-financed anti-fascists groups campaigning against the O9A, have spread and are spreading lies and disinformation about the O9A, with mainstream politicians and others, just like journalists, believing and repeating – post-2019 – the lies and the disinformation of anti-fascists. {2}

Lies and disinformation which anti-fascists have ensured are included in the Wikipedia page about the O9A, and lies and disinformation which have contributed to the Labyrinthos Mythologicus of the Order of Nine Angles and thus which those who understand the essence and raison d’être of the O9A regard as beneficial to the O9A, because:

<begin quote>
“[the] extended Labyrinthos Mythologicus [2.0] deters the majority from discovering O9A esotericism, since they have faithfully accepted – for whatever reason – what has been written and said, and is being written and said, by others about the O9A. That is, the extended Labyrinthos Mythologicus is even more selective and testing than the original, and thus beneficial to the O9A because it ensures that only those individuals who have the right physis – the right nature – or the necessary potential or an empathy with the O9A aesthetic will through their own efforts discover what the O9A now is.”
<end quote>  {3}

Essential Texts Regarding Understanding The O9A

It is my considered opinion that a reading of the texts listed below under the heading Some Essential O9A Texts, all of which texts are freely available as pdf documents, is necessary for a person to understand, and to appreciate the esoteric context, of the O9A, and that a failure to read these texts means a person does not have the knowledge to rationally speak and/or to rationally write about the O9A, and that therefore their opinion about the O9A – and their opinion of those who associate themselves with the esoteric philosophy of the O9A – is superficial, and often an emotive personal opinion.

Naturally, to read – and then to reflect upon – some 1300 pages concerned with one particular topic takes both time and a certain commitment. A time and a commitment which modern ways of life militate against, reflected and manifest as such modern ways are, for example, in social media such as the “Twitter” cyber-platform, and in well-financed political “special interest groups” replete with passionate advocates, both of which constructs allow and presence an emotional, instinctive, personal response rather than a reasoned response based on personal knowledge derived from a detailed study of the topic in question.

It is therefore quite understandable why superficial, emotive, irrational, and plebeian, opinions – and lies and disinformation spread by politicians and “special interest groups” – about the O9A now dominate cyberspace, newspapers, books, and other causal mediums. For we few who associate ourselves with O9A esoteric philosophy have a supra-personal Aeonic perspective, {4} formed from a study of O9A texts and our pathei-mathos, and thus understand the temporal, causal, nature of the current Aeon and how and why such superficial, emotive, irrational, and plebeian, opinions about the O9A will fade away and be replaced over the coming decades and centuries. And be replaced partly because we few will continue to recruit, on a clandestine personal basis, one person or perhaps two other persons per decade and inform them, through their reading of such suggested texts, of the reality of the O9A.

Thus it is for such future recruits, and for a current independent, sagacious and interested few, that I present my personal list of essential O9A texts.

{4} The Aeonic perspective of the O9A is defined in version 5.03 of A Glossary of Order of Nine Angles Terms, included in The Seofonfeald Paeth,

“The term describes some of the knowledge O9A folk have acquired through a combination of practical experience, through a scholarly study, and through
using certain Occult faculties and skills, such as esoteric-empathy. This knowledge is of the birth-life-death of Aeons and their associated civilizations, and of how the esoteric movement that is the O9A has a perspective – a sinister dialectic – of both centuries and of the sinister- numinous and of how Aeons manifest acausality through the sinister- numinous. In addition, the knowledge includes how a new aeon can be brought-into-being and how it manifests καλὸς κἀγαθός.”
