Vindex – Mythos And Logos

odal3

°°°°°°°°°

We present here another extract from our forthcoming book Tyberness, which extract is from a chapter of the book which will be controversial since it deals with the O9A Vindex mythos and opposition to the Magian ethos, and with what the O9A mean by Satan, and also with why the O9A stated that NS Germany was a Magian heresy and “a burst of Luciferian light – of zest and power – in an otherwise Nazarene, pacified and boring world.”

The following extract is from the chapter titled Vindex – Mythos And Logos.

°°°°°°

According to the esotericism of the O9A, Vindex is the name given to the exoteric (or “outer”) nexion through which powerful acausal energies are presenced on Earth in order to replace the current status quo (the Old Aeon) and which energies prepare the way for – and then inaugurate the practical beginnings of – the New Aeon.

Vindex can be presenced (“manifest”) in an individual (who may be male or female). If an individual, Vindex is the embodiment of The Law of the New Aeon, which is personal and kindred honour, with the O9A Code of Kindred Honour the new logos – the “word” – which describes this new aeon and which logos is the unique perceiveration of the O9A.

Used as the exoteric name of an individual, Vindex means “the Avenger”, and while it is traditionally (and semantically) regarded as a male name, with the Anglicized feminine form being Vengerisse, Vindex is now often used to refer to either the man or the woman who is or who becomes the nexion.

The essence of the new way of life that Vindex heralds and implements (the Vindex ethos) is embodied in:

(1) the way of tribes and clans in place of the abstraction of the modern nation-State; and
(2) the way, the law, of personal and kindred honour in place of the abstract impersonal laws made by modern governments.

The main opponents of Vindex are those who represent or who accept the Magian ethos.

Two Heretical O9A Texts

Two Heretical O9A Texts
(pdf)

Contents:
° Editorial Introduction
° Prologue
° The Nazarene/Magian Ethos

°°°°°°°

From the Editorial Introduction:

The following classic O9A texts were included in a compilation titled Nexion – A Guide to Sinister Strategy, which compilation included articles with titles such as Freedom – The Illusion, Satanism and Race, Aeonics and Heresy, and Conquer, Destroy, Create.

The Prologue is a short rather strange piece of fiction, referencing as it does both an acausal entity and an earthly incident recounted by August Kubizek in his book The Young Hitler I Knew.

A phrase from the article The Nazarene/Magian Ethos has often been quoted, out of context, as “proof” that the ONA is “neo-nazi”. The phrase is: NS Germany was a burst of Luciferian light – of zest and power – in an otherwise Nazarene, pacified and boring world.

However, the article makes it clear that the ONA considered and considers National Socialism as just one “causal form” which could be useful in terms of Aeonic sorcery:
              “It is important to understand that such political beliefs – e.g. racism, NS – which might do and sometimes in the past have expressed aspects of Western destiny, are, from a magickal esoteric point of view merely means: i.e. vehicles or forms to achieve specific magickal goals. Their objective truth and their morality is irrelevant – and this applies equally to the future use of such outward forms, should such use be considered a useful means of channelling acausal energy to achieve a specified goal.”

As also noted in the Introduction to Nexion – A Guide to Sinister Strategy,
              “National-Socialism is presented here within the context of ‘Occultism’ (specifically Satanism) and is thus explicated in its esoteric sense – as a form which can achieve something beyond itself.
              Because of this, the MSS contained herein, all written by, and hitherto secretly circulated among members of the Satanic Order of Nine Angles, require an ‘Aeonic awareness’ for their full appreciation; that is, the understanding of the essence of all forms behind their appearance. Such an awareness, expressed both intellectually and practically, aids the establishment of the next Aeon, thus fulfilling the Destiny of the Western Civilization.
              Seen within a conventional context, the material herein is genuinely heretical – and possession/distribution of it is illegal in many countries.”

Although the Nazarene/Magian Ethos article is undated, O9A aural tradition dates it from the late 1980s with a revised version issued in the early 1990s. The writing style of the article, and the inclusion of multiple parenthetical comments, suggests this early O9A instructional text was the product of at least two authors.

Myatt’s Philosophy In The Real World

David Myatt

°°°°°°°°°

The following pdf document contains our essay Applying Myatt’s Philosophy To The Real World, issued in two parts in February 2019.

We argue that the modern terms – the denotata – “racism” and “hate-speech”, and what derives from them, such as “racist”, are examples of the Myattian principles that (i) denotata hide the physis (the nature) of living beings and thus the ontological relationship between living beings and between an individual being and Being itself, and (ii) such denotata depend on the supposition that named opposites exist and that implicit in such a supposition is a dialectic; i.e. a real or assumed or a potential conflict.

We also suggest that such modern denotatum as “racism”, and “hate-speech”, derive from the ideological movements that have come to dominate the political life of the nations of the West; movements which Myatt wrote about in his earlier monograph Vindex: Destiny Of The West, published in 1984.

We conclude that Myatt’s apparently “above time” philosophy of pathei-mathos is ineluctably Western, pagan, and practical, and in essence opposed to the Magian abstractions – such as the concept of “racism” – that now dominate the nation States of the modern Western world to the detriment of our ancestral Faustian ethos.

An Occult Phantom Menace
Part Thirty Seven

The Jewish Anti-Defamation League (ADL) – declaring that they “are the foremost authority and leader in fighting hate online” – in a new report now promote the modern orthodoxy about the heretical O9A {1}.

For the ADL wrote:

{quote}
                  “Atomwaffen draws some of its influences from satanic ideas and beliefs. Required and recommended reading lists for Atomwaffen’s “aspiring initiates” include books that draw on satanic and occult themes, while some Atomwaffen members promote a particular version of Satanism known as The Order of Nine Angles, commonly abbreviated as ONA or O9A, which is steeped in neo-Nazi themes that praise Adolf Hitler, promote Holocaust denial and identify Jews as the enemy.
                  The Order of Nine Angles’ spiritual leader, Anton Long (which may be a pseudonym for David Myatt), is a notorious British neo-Nazi leader with a violent criminal history. Siege Culture, an Atomwaffen website, promotes Long’s book Hostia: Secret Teachings of the Order of Nine Angles, an instructional guide for would-be O9A members that encourages “satanic novices” to undergo a personal transformation to achieve a more revolutionary mindset. Suggestions include enlisting in a police force, championing heretical views, becoming a professional burglar and joining the armed forces (in wartime) to gain combat experience.” {2}
{/quote}

The modern orthodoxy about the heretical O9A is that the O9A is neo-nazi and satanist, and that the aims of the O9A involve members infiltrating and manipulating “extremist right-wing” groups in order to disrupt society and which disruption is, so the orthodoxy goes, apparently masterminded by a certain Mr Myatt who has a “lifelong aim of destroying Judeo-Christian culture.” {3}

Applying Myatt’s Philosophy To The Real World
(pdf)

Contents:

° Some Basic Principles
° Race And Racism
° Magian Abstractions
° Return To Our Ancestral Pagan Source

°°°°°°°

Extract:

One of the principles of David Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos is that denotata – the manufacture, the use, and the naming of categories – hides the physis (the nature) of living beings and thus the ontological relationship between living beings and between an individual being and Being itself. To illustrate his contention Myatt in his 2015 essay Personal Reflexions On Some Metaphysical Questions quotes a fragment attributed to Heraclitus and provides his own iconoclastic translation.

Another principle of Myatt’s philosophy is that the ontological relationships between living beings are revealed by the wordless and the individual knowing that empathy provides.

Myatt contends that, in respect of human beings, such denotata depend on the supposition that named opposites exist and that implicit in such a supposition is a dialectic; i.e. a real or assumed or a potential conflict. Such a conflict between assumed opposites inevitably leads to or perpetuates suffering among human beings because one denotatum is often assumed to be “good” or “true” or “necessary”, with its named opposite assumed to be “bad”, “an error”, or “unnecessary” and “unwarranted”.

A pertinent modern example in respect of human beings living in the lands of the West is the denotatum “racism” and which recently manufactured abstraction has spawned denotata such as “racist” and “institutional racism” as well as dialectical opposites such as “anti-racist”.

Boris Johnson: His Jewish Credentials

odal3

°°°°°°°°°

The new Prime Minister of Britain, who assumed office in July 2019, is very proud of his Jewish ancestry. Johnson’s maternal great-grandfather, Elias Avery Lowe, was a Jew born in Moscow.

In an interview with the Jewish Chronicle in 2007 Boris said:
                  “I feel Jewish when I feel the Jewish people are threatened or under attack […] When I suddenly get a whiff of anti-Semitism, it’s then that you feel angry and protective […] I’m proud of [my Jewish ancestry] very proud.” Boris Johnson – My Jewish Credentials, The Jewish Chronicle, 06/09/2007

According to the newspaper The Times of Israel (August 7, 2014) Johnston described himself as "a passionate Zionist."

He publicly showed his belief in holocaustianity by placing a wreath in the "Hall of Remembrance" at Yad Vashem in 2015, writing in the museum's guestbook that:
                  "No one must ever forget the truth of what happened and this museum will ensure that the lesson of that horror will stay in our hearts forever."

As we noted in our article A German Day Of Remembrance,
                  “It is no coincidence that every modern Western political leader or potential leader is obliged to visit the Zionist state and show their support for the myth of the holocaust – for holocaustianity – by a solemn visit to Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre. Failure to do so is political suicide, with holocaustianity being the founding myth of the Zionist state and the means whereby that state acquires and has acquired, from the West, military superiority in the Middle East.”

Appreciating The Philosophy Of Pathei-Mathos

Abstract

We ask why David Myatt’s mystical philosophy of pathei-mathos is unappreciated and why are old allegations and rumours about him still made and still propagated today.

We suggest it may in part be because in Myatt’s philosophy empathy and personal honour lead us away from the Judeo-Christian illusion of causal abstractions (a naming) and a dialectic of opposites based on such naming with the inevitable apocalyptic eschatology; and partly because his philosophy presents a modern and rational paganism based on Greco-Roman values and is therefore seen as belonging to a new and emerging “right-wing” milieu in which ancestral (native and pagan) European culture and a tradition of personal honour are central.

°°°°°°°°°

That David Myatt’s mystical philosophy of pathei-mathos {1} is unappreciated today except by a few sagacious individuals is understandable given two things. First, Myatt’s extremist past – three decades (1968-1998) as a neo-nazi activist and ideologue, and almost a decade (1998-2008) as a supporter and ideologue of Muslim Jihad – and, second, given the unproven allegations, and the rumours spread, about him over the decades by politically motivated individuals and organizations with an agenda who profess to be “fighting extremism”.

Allegations and rumours that are still made and still propagated today despite Myatt’s voluminous post-2011 writings about his rejection of extremism. Writings such as his 2013 book Understanding and Rejecting Extremism: A Very Strange Peregrination {2} and collections of essays such as his Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos: Essays and Letters Regarding Spirituality, Humility, and A Learning From Grief {3}.

Why therefore are such allegations and rumours still made and still propagated today?

All his vociferous politically orientated critics say and write are either prejudiced statements such as “it’s hard to take anything Myatt says at face value, so successfully has he enshrouded himself in self-contradictory disinformation”, or make propagandistic claims such as that he has a “history of deception”, none of which statements or claims his critics support with probative evidence based on primary sources.

That is, such critics are merely presenting their personal opinions as well as revealing either their lack of knowledge of Myatt’s voluminous post-2011 writings about extremism and about his philosophy of pathei-mathos, or their prejudiced dismissal of those writings as “disinformation and deceptive”. Have they even read or have they studied in detail those writings?

Good, Evil, Honour, and God

Where, for example, are their reasoned, or their scholarly, critiques of Myatt’s Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God, his 29 page monograph included in his book Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos.

Which monograph is a relevant example of his writings about his philosophy of pathei-mathos, and in which he compares the ontologies of Christianity, Islam, and the modern nation-state with the ontology he proposes for his own philosophy.

For example, after discussing the ontologies of Christianity, Islam, and the modern nation-state, he presents in Parts Four and Five his argument in favour of a personal ontology deriving from pathei mathos, as well as presenting his conclusions regarding the need to lead a tolerant, compassionate, honourable, way of life.

Thus in Part Four he writes:
                  “To be in balance, in harmony, with Life; the balance that is love, compassion, humility, empathy, honour, tolerance, kindness, and wu-wei.
                  This, by its nature, is a personal answer and a personal choice; an alternative way that compliments and is respectful of other answers, other choices, and of other ways of dealing with issues such as the suffering that afflicts others, the harm that humans do so often inflict and have for so long inflicted upon others […]
                  No need for dogma or too many words; no need for comparisons; no ‘just cause’ to excuse our behaviour. No mechanisms and no techniques to enable us to progress toward some-thing because there is no need or requirement to progress toward what is not there to be attained.
                  There is only a personal living in such a way that we try to be compassionate, empathic, loving, honourable, kind, tolerant, gentle, and humble. And this is essentially the wisdom, the insight, the way of living – sans denotatum – that thousands upon thousands of people over millennia have contributed to the culture of pathei-mathos, as well as the essence of the message which many if not all spiritual ways and religions, in their genesis, perhaps saught to reveal: the message of the health of love and of our need, as fallible beings often inclined toward the unbalance of hubris, for humility.”

In Part Five he explains the origins of his philosophy:
                  “Twenty years ago, someone whom I loved who loved me died, too young and having harmed no one. Died, leaving me bereft, if only for a while. For too soon my return to those hubriatic, selfish, suffering-causing, and extremist, ways of my pasts. As if, despite the grief, the pain of loss, I personally had learned nothing, except in such moments of such remembering that did not, unfortunately, impact too much upon my practicalities of life; at least until another bereavement, thirteen years later, came to shock, shake, betake me far from my arrogant presumptions about myself, about life, to thus lead, to so slowly lead, to me on a clear cold day yet again interiorly dwelling on what, if anything, is our human purpose of being here and why such bereavements, such early deaths, just seem so unjust, unfair.”

Another relevant example is his In Reply To Some Questions (2012) in which he explains in greater detail the intent of his writings about extremism and about his philosophy of πάθει μάθος – the ‘numinous way’ – and that those writings
                  “have been written as expressions of my own feelings, experiences, and philosophical reflexions, with no particular audience in mind, save in many instance for a few personal friends. In effect, they document my interior struggles, my attempts to find solutions to certain philosophical problems, and my desire to understand the how and the why of my hubris, of my extremist decades, and thus to understand and acknowledge the mistakes of my past – to understand and acknowledge the suffering I caused – and understand the error of extremism itself […]
                  What I hope to achieve by such writings is to communicate – or to attempt to communicate – some of my insights, some of my experiences, some of my solutions, and some of my conclusions, such as they are, and as personal and as fallible as they are, and dealing as they do with extremism, with an extremist life, and with the personal life of the hubriatic man I was […]
                  My concern – and therefore that of the philosophy of πάθει μάθος – is with spiritual (numinous) and personal matters. With our own individual interior change and reformation; with the perspective and insight that empathy and pathei-mathos provide: which is of personal virtues such as compassion, love, humility, empathy, πάθει μάθος, honour, and wu-wei, and thus with treating human beings as individuals […]
                  My writings over the past few years have been personal, ‘mystical’, and philosophical, with the latter documenting the development and refinement of my ‘numinous way’ culminating in my moral philosophy of pathei-mathos which is concerned with individuals and how individuals might discover and learn to appreciate ἁρμονίη and δίκη and so move toward wisdom. So, what I wanted – rather, what I felt compelled to do following a personal tragedy – was to try and understand myself, my suffering-causing past; to try and discover what undermined ἁρμονίη and δίκη, and what ὕβρις was and what it caused and why.”

Is this as his politically orientated critics claim “disinformation and deceptive”, or is it – like his Understanding and Rejecting Extremism, his Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God, and other such writings including his autobiography Myngath – a genuine expression of Enantiodromia, of the reformation of an individual? {4}

That Myatt’s politically orientated critics have not penned reasoned, or scholarly, critiques of such Myattian works should be sufficient to answer that question.

A Modern Pagan Philosophy

One other reason why Myatt’s mystical philosophy of pathei-mathos may be unappreciated today, and another possible reason why his politically motivated critics have not penned reasoned, or scholarly, critiques of that philosophy, is that his philosophy is, for many of those who have studied it, a modern pagan philosophy in the tradition of Greco-Roman philosophy.

In his recent (2019) autobiographical essay An Indebtedness To Ancient Greek And Greco-Roman Culture he explained that he uses some non-English terms mostly from Ancient Greek but occasionally from Latin,
                  “in the hope that such terms would not only be able to convey my meaning better than some easily mis-understood English term but also might be assimilated into the English language as philosophical terms either in their transliterated English form or in their Greek and Latin form.
                  Such terms might also reveal my indebtedness to Ancient Greek and Greco-Roman culture and how and why the philosophy of pathei-mathos is both a “transition from mythoi and anthropomorphic deities (theos and theoi) to an appreciation of the numinous sans denotatum and sans religion” and thus a return to individual insight and understanding over impersonal abstractions/ideations, over denotatum, and over religious and political dogma, with the Latin denotatum – used as an Anglicized term and which thus can be used to describe both singular and plural instances of denoting and naming – a useful example of my somewhat idiosyncratic methodology.
                Thus and for example I used and use σοφόν instead of σοφός when the sense implied is not the usual “skilled”, or “learned” or “wise” but rather what lies beyond and what was/is the genesis of what is presenced in a person as skill, or learning, or wisdom. I used and use σωφρονεῖν in preference to σωφροσύνη (sophrosyne) to suggest a fair and balanced personal judgement rather than the fairly modern English interpretation of sophrosyne as soundness of mind, moderation.” {5}

In that essay he asks then answers a rhetorical question about using such Greek and Anglicized terms:
                  “Does my idiosyncratic use of Ancient Greek and Latin terms make this philosophy confusing, difficult to understand and difficult to appreciate? Perhaps. But since philosophia – ϕιλοσοϕία – is, at least according to my fallible understanding, becoming a friend of σοφόν, and since such a personal friendship involves seeking to understand Being, beings, and Time, and since part of the ethos of the culture of the West – heir to Ancient Greek and Greco-Roman culture – is or at least was a personal and rational quest for understanding and knowledge, then perhaps some effort, as befits those of noble physis who appreciate and who may seek to presence καλὸς κἀγαθός, is only to be expected.”

In his recent monograph Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos he explains the context and meaning of the term καλὸς κἀγαθός, writing that
                  “we are, ontologically, emanations of and presence Being, and are a connexion to the cosmos – to other presencings of Being – through, in terms of epistemology, not only reason (λόγος), perceiverance (νοῦς) and wordless-awareness (συμπάθεια, empathy) but also through τὸ ἀγαθὸν, τὸ καλὸν, and ἀρετὴ, through the beautiful and the well-balanced, the valourous and honourable, and those who possess arête, all of which are combined in one Greek phrase: καλὸς κἀγαθός, which means those who conduct themselves in a gentlemanly or lady-like manner and who thus manifest – because of their innate physis or through pathei-mathos or through a certain type of education or learning – nobility of character. Which Greek phrase expresses the ethics, the high personal standards, of the ancient paganus weltanschauung we have been discussing.”

In his monographs Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and Tu Es Diaboli Ianua – both published in 2017 {6} – he writes of the difference between classical paganism and revealed religions such as Christianity. That there is, in his view, a
                  “fundamental difference between a religious apprehension of the numinous – based on received and venerated texts, on exegesis – and the paganus apprehension of the numinous as manifest in Greco-Roman culture, based as it is on an individual, and an intuitive, empathic and thus wordless, apprehension of the numinous.” {7}

This “empathic apprehension of the numinous” is at the core of Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos. In his Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos he writes that empathy is a means by which we can
                  “understand both φύσις and Πόλεμος, and thus apprehend Being as Being, and the nature of beings – and in particular the nature of our being, as mortals. For empathy reveals to us the acausality of Being and thus how the process of abstraction, involving as it does an imposition of causality and separation upon beings (and the ideation) implicit on opposites and dialectic), is a covering-up of Being.”

In Tu Es Diaboli Ianua, he writes that
                  “Greco-Roman culture is inextricably bound to the culture of the West and formed the basis for the European Renaissance that emerged in the 14th century, one aspect of which was a widespread appreciation of classical Art, of classical literature, and of texts such as the Corpus Hermeticum.”

Which why his translations of eight tractates of the Corpus Hermeticum, and of other Greek texts,
                  “when studied together enable us to appreciate and understand the classical, pagan, ethos and thence the ethos of the West itself […]
                  What Myatt does in his translations [of the Corpus Hermeticum] is paint a picture of classical – and of Hellenic – culture and especially of Hellenic mysticism; a culture and a mysticism which is pagan and based on individuals, on tangible things such as honesty, and not on moralistic and religious and impersonal abstractions. That is, he reveals the Greco-Roman ethos – the pagan ethos – underlying the hermetic texts and which is in contrast to that of Christianity with its later, medieval and Puritanical, impersonal moralizing.” {8}

Which understanding of the ethos of the West, sans Christianity, the politically orientated individuals and organizations who are vociferous critics of Myatt most probably view as heresy, as evidence that Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos undermines the Judeo-Christian culture and tradition that still forms the basis of many Western nation-states, and evidence also of how Myatt’s philosophy may aid those who champion a particular and pagan interpretation of Western culture.

As one commentator noted, Western culture is
                  “exemplified according to Myatt by καλὸς κἀγαθός. That is, by those who “conduct themselves in a gentlemanly or lady-like manner and who thus manifest – because of their innate physis or through pathei-mathos or through a certain type of education or learning – nobility of character,” and which nobility of character is manifest in “the virtues of personal honour and manners” and which Western culture was also – according to Myatt and contra modern ‘political correctness’ – manifest in a natural and necessary aristocracy composed of those who possess nobility of character and who thus exemplify καλὸς κἀγαθός.” {8}

This interpretation of Western culture, as Myatt expresses it in his Tu Es Diaboli Ianua, is also
                   “an (often wordless) awareness of ourselves as a fallible mortal, as a microcosmic connexion to other mortals, to other life, to Nature, and to the Cosmos beyond our world; and a new civitas, and one not based on some abstractive law but on a spiritual and interior (and thus not political) understanding and appreciation of our own Ancestral Culture and that of others; on our ‘civic’ duty to personally presence καλὸς κἀγαθός and thus to act and to live in a noble way.
                  For the virtues of personal honour and manners, with their responsibilities, presence the fairness, the avoidance of hubris, the natural harmonious balance, the gender equality, the awareness and appreciation of the divine, that is the numinous.

Which “new civitas” – new communities, a new understanding of what being part of (a citizen of) such communities means; a new definition of freedom based on honour – strikes at the very foundations of the modern nation-state with its impersonal laws and in which modern nation-states where the ‘law of personal honour’ – one of the foundations of Myatt’s philosophy {9} – if not outlawed is subject to often severe state-sanctioned restrictions.

As Myatt noted in his Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God,
                  “My own and only fallible answer to the question of how to deal with the suffering that blights this world therefore seems to be the answer of a personal honour. That is, for each of us to gently try to carry that necessary harmony, that balance, of δίκη, wordlessly within; to thus restrain ourselves from causing harm while being able, prepared, in the immediacy of the moment, to personally, physically, restrain – prevent – others when we chance upon such harm being done. This, to me, is Life in its wholesome natural fullness – as lived, presenced, by the brief, mortal, consciously aware, emanations we are; mortal emanations capable of restraint, reason, culture, and reforming change; of learning from our pathei-mathos and that of others. My personal answer to personal questions, perplexion, and to grief and doubt. The answer which is to live in hope – even need – of a personal loyal love; to live with empathy, gentleness, humility, compassion, and yet with strength enough to do what should be done when, within the purvue of our personal space, we meet with one or many causing suffering and harm, no thought then for the fragility of our own mortal life or even for personal consequences beyond the ἁρμονίη we, in such honourable moments, are.”

In an essay written in September 2014 he explained that
                  “personal honour – which presences the virtues of fairness, tolerance, compassion, humility, and εὐταξία – [is] (i) a natural intuitive (wordless) expression of the numinous (‘the good’, δίκη, συμπάθεια) and (ii) of both what the culture of pathei-mathos and the acausal-knowing of empathy reveal we should do (or incline us toward doing) in the immediacy of the personal moment when personally confronted by what is unfair, unjust, and extreme.
                  Of how such honour – by its and our φύσις – is and can only ever be personal, and thus cannot be extracted out from the ‘living moment’ and our participation in the moment.” {10}

By expressing a new civitas based on the concept of personal honour and on the noble virtues of καλὸς κἀγαθός, Myatt’s rather unique philosophy, evolved as it has been by his Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and his Tu Es Diaboli Ianua monographs – might well be seen to be, according to the standards of the political status quo, as somewhat radical.

It might also become seen to be, or may already be seen to be, by some politically orientated individuals and organizations who profess to be “fighting extremism” – and who are still swayed by the Judeo-Christian illusion of causal abstractions and the dialectic of opposites – part of a new and emerging “right-wing” milieu in which ancestral (native and pagan) European culture and a tradition of personal honour are central. {11}

According to Myatt’s philosophy, empathy and personal honour lead us away from the Judeo-Christian illusion of causal abstractions (a naming) and a dialectic of opposites based on such naming with the inevitable apocalyptic eschatology which engenders a real-world struggle or a war between a posited and a supra-personal, abstract, ‘good’ and ‘evil’. An eschatology – struggle between a posited ‘good’ (us) and a posited ‘evil’ (our enemies) – which the modern nation-state has appropriated, as witness the propaganda against National Socialist Germany with its portrayal of The Third Reich as the ‘evil’ enemy who must be fought and defeated.

Myatt’s philosophy leads us away from such abstractions, back toward the pagan insight of Greeks such as Heraclitus:
                  “Although this naming and expression [which I explain] exists, human beings tend to ignore it, both before and after they have become aware of it. Yet even though, regarding such naming and expression, I have revealed details of how Physis has been cleaved asunder, some human beings are inexperienced concerning it, fumbling about with words and deeds, just as other human beings, be they interested or just forgetful, are unaware of what they have done.” {12}

In chapter three of his The Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos Myatt provides not only the Greek text of two other fragments by or attributed to Heraclitus but also his own translations:
                  “Polemos our genesis, governing us all to bring forth some gods, some mortal beings with some unfettered yet others kept bound.” Fragment 53
                  “All by genesis is appropriately apportioned [separated into portions] with beings bound together again by enantiodromia.” Diogenes Laërtius, ix. 7.

In that chapter he writes that
                  “Empathy also reveals why the assumption that abstracted, ideated, opposites apply to or should apply to living beings – and that they thus can supply us with knowledge and understanding of living being – disrupts the natural balance, resulting in a loss of ἁρμονίη [harmony] and συμπάθεια and is therefore a manifestation of the error of ὕβρις.”

In place of such abstracted, ideated, Judeo-Christian conflicting opposites there is in both Greco-Roman paganism, and in Myatt’s philosophy, Summum Bonum. As Myatt notes in his Tu Es Diaboli Ianua, quoting the Roman philosopher Seneca,
                  "What is injurious to such a [pagan] harmonious balance is what is dishonourable, with τὸ ἀγαθὸν – Summum Bonum – thus understood as honestum, as what is honourable, noble:
                  summum bonum est quod honestum est; et quod magis admireris: unum bonum est, quod honestum est, cetera falsa et adulterina bona sunt. Seneca, Ad Lucilium Epistulae Morales, LXXI, 4. [“the greatest good is that which is honourable. Also – and you may wonder at this – only that which is honourable is good, with all other 'goods' simply false and deceitful."]
                  For honestum is how hubris can be avoided and balance maintained, and is the essence of καλὸς κἀγαθός which presences the numinous, the divine, in and among mortals."

This rational pagan understanding is worlds away from the abstractions of the modern nation-state and makes the unproven allegations, and the rumours spread, about Myatt now and over the decades by politically orientated individuals and organizations with an agenda who profess to be "fighting extremism" seem to belong to a medieval world of heretics, hateful preachers, and zealous fanatics inspired by the prevalent Judeo-Christian culture and who sought to track down, publicly shame, and accuse "witches" and "wizards" of heresy.

The Physis Of The Order Of Nine Angles
(pdf)

°°°°°

From the Preface:

Published here are an eclectic selection of articles written in the past few years and culled either from blogs that support the esoteric philosophy and the occult praxises of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) or from blogs that comment on the O9A and/or on Mr Myatt.

The common themes of the articles which form the chapters of this compilation are (i) the physis (the nature, character, intent, and origin) of the Order of Nine Angles and (ii) whether or not the O9A, as most of its critics proclaim, is a “neo-nazi” occult group […]

°°°°°

From the Introduction:

What has confused the issue about the physis of the O9A, for outsiders, for critics, or for those who have not researched O9A texts in detail, are three things […]

The first source of confusion arises because one and only one O9A praxis, the Seven Fold Way, has some suggested ordeals and tasks associated with its early stages which tasks include “Insight Rôles” and which Insight Rôles can involve joining a “neo-nazi” group. Another suggested task is “culling”, while another is forming a “satanist” group and performing such rituals as given in the O9A Black Book Of Satan, first published in the 1980s.

It is therefore not surprising, because of the outré nature of such tasks, that outsiders, critics, many academics, and the majority of journalists who have written about the O9A, have assumed that such short term tasks, limited as they are to just one O9A praxis, represent the nature and intent of the O9A. Thus have such individuals, for personal, or political, or for other reasons, tended to sensationalize or criticize the O9A often due to a lack of research into and a lack of knowledge regarding the O9A […]

The second source of confusion is that they do not, again often due to a lack of research into and a lack of knowledge regarding the O9A, know about the pagan origins of the O9A and of how it manifests a modern, evolved form, of an ancient non-Kabbalistic tradition of pagan esotericism […]

The third source of confusion is that, in respect of National Socialism, the anarchic structure of the O9A and the O9A principle of the Authority Of Individual Judgment mean that individuals are free to interpret the esoteric philosophy of the O9A according to their own understanding of it and use their own judgment in assessing, and in using, the various practical Occult methods of the O9A […]

[The] difference of interpretation [that results] is an essential, although overlooked, aspect of the O9A and has led to some of those associating themselves with the O9A to ask such questions as are given in the chapter Progressive, Traditional, Or Synthesis? The Evolution Of The O9A […]

What is also a factor in rationally discussing the alleged neo-nazi nature of the O9A – and a neglected factor outside of the O9A itself – is that, as the chapter titled The Two Interpretations Of National Socialism: Ours And Theirs makes clear, there are two different interpretations of neo-nazism […]

Mr Myatt And Reichsfolk

odal3

°°°°°°°°°

One question which we [@ Reichsfolk] have been repeatedly asked since 2000 ev – and especially since 2012 ev – is why we publicize and use the National-Socialist writings of Mr Myatt given his conversion to Islam in 1998 ev and then his post 2012 ev development of his “philosophy of pathei-mathos” with his condemnation of German National Socialism and of Adolf Hitler.

Our answer, pre-2012, was always along the following lines:

° That, in our opinion, his NS writings – such as those in the pdf collection the Selected National Socialist Writings Of David Myatt – are among the best modern writings about National Socialism and cement his reputation as “England’s principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution.” {1}

° Because even during his decade as a Muslim he not only wrote such gems as Esoteric Hitlerism: Idealism, the Third Reich and the Essence of National-Socialism and National-Socialism, Folk Culture, and a Muslim Khilafah (pdf) but also embarked upon a campaign to bring National-Socialists and Jihadi Muslims together in order to fight their common “Zionist” enemy. {2}

To which answer we, post-2012, have added the following:

° That we consider that he has in the words of JR Wright in her article One Man Above Time: David Myatt, Reichsfolk, Esoteric Hitlerism, and Savitri Devi (pdf) moved from living a practical “in Time” life to one that is totally “above Time”. {3}

° That in the context of Reichsfolk – with its emphasis on new, local, leaderless, folk communities as opposed to the concept of The State, and with the Reichsfolk emphasis on personal combat as opposed to impersonal war between States – Myatt’s criticism (i) of German National Socialism (predicated as it was on a powerful State and on kampf) and (ii) of Adolf Hitler, may well be valid since all “in Time” States and Empires and armies are, in the perspective of centuries, transitory, and since all leaders, however gifted and charismatic, are fallible and inevitably make mistakes and often commit the error of hubris. Was, for example, Hitler’s invasion of Russia a strategic mistake that inevitably led to the destruction of the Third Reich?

° That Myatt’s latest writings – such as his Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and his Tu Es Diaboli Ianua – as well as his translations of classical ancient texts such as Sophocles and Aeschylus and his Corpus Hermeticum: Eight Tractates expound the pagan ethos that formed the genesis of our Western “Faustian” civilization.

Thus we consider Myatt as migrating – due to his pathei mathos – from an “in time” activist and ideologue to an “above time” philosopher and mystic. As Savitri Devi wrote in her Lightning And Sun:

[quote]
                  “But there are also men ‘outside Time’ or rather ‘above Time’; men who live, here and now, in eternity; who (directly at least) have no part to play in the downward rush of history towards disintegration and death, but who behold it from above – as one beholds, from a strong and safe bridge, the irresistible rush of a waterfall into the abyss – and who have repudiated the law of violence which is the law of Time…..
                  But the salvation which the men ‘above Time’ offer the world is always that which consists in breaking the time-bondage. It is never that which would find its expression in collective life on earth in accordance with Golden Age ideals. It is the salvation of the individual soul, never that of organised society…..
                  Men ‘outside Time’ or ‘above Time,’ at the most saviours of souls, have, more often than not, disciples who are definitely men ‘against Time.’
                  No organisation can live ‘outside Time’ – ‘above Time’ – and hope to bring men back, one day, to the knowledge of the eternal, values. That, all men ‘above Time’ have realised. In order to establish, or even to try to establish, here and now, a better order, in accordance with Truth everlasting, one has to live, outwardly at least, like those who are still ‘in Time’; like them, one has to be violent, merciless, destructive – but for different ends.
                  Knowing this, the real men ‘above Time’ are the first ones to understand and to appreciate the wholehearted efforts of their disciples ‘against Time,’ however awful these might appear to ordinary people…. The fallen world can never understand them.”
[/quote]

Most people today apparently do not understand David Myatt, and perhaps never will. But we like to believe we do.

Those “in time” – like Genghis Khan – who concentrate on military might; those “above time” – like the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten – who are otherworldly and mystic; and those “against time” – like Adolf Hitler – who are both “in time” and “above time”, both Lightning and Sun.

A Powerful And Influential Zionist Myth

odal3

°°°°°°°°°

The United States ambassador to the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine – who was appointed by the pro-Zionist administration of the current President, The Vulgarian – recently declared that the Zionist entity was “on the side of God.” {1}

He also declared that in relation to moving the US embassy to Jerusalem in compliance to Zionist demands,
             “the move of the embassy was a validation by the strongest nation in the world, not just strong militarily, strong economically, but strong morally, strong ethically, with a bedrock of Judeo-Christian values.”

Such declarations, and the fact that the ambassador – David M. Friedman – is Jewish and that his remarks were made at a meeting of an American Christian evangelical group provides the necessary context.

A context also provided by comments such as that “God gave the Land of Israel to the Jewish people thousands of years ago” {2}, and as does the plan by the current US national security adviser John Bolton to either get the US to invade Iran {3} – the arch enemy of the Zionist entity – or to support a proxy war against Iran undertaken by Middle East states such as Iraq and Saudi Arabia. A proxy war similar to the current conflict in Yemen where the US provides military hardware, military intelligence, and incentives to a Saudi-led coalition in their war with Shia rebels and which Shia rebels look to Iran as their spiritual home.

That the wealthy John Bolton, a staunch Christian, was instrumental in getting the US to invade Iraq in 2003 by using the lie of “weapons of mass destruction” and instrumental in supporting armed “regime change” – and conflict – in Libya and Syria, and yet like the Vulgarian {4}{5} cowardly managed to avoid military service in Vietnam {6} says all that needs to be said about his posturing war-mongering.

The necessary context is how so many influential individuals in the pro-Zionist administration of the current President of the United States promote “Judeo-Christian values”, and believe in the myth that the Zionist entity is “on the side of God” and accept the myth that “God gave the Land of Israel to the Jewish people thousands of years ago.”

In other words, the most powerful nation on Earth is – in the 21st century – not only promoting a particular ancient religious myth but is using that myth to support policies of foreign aggression and unconditional support for Zionists and the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine.

In practical terms this amounts to Zionist control and manipulation of the most powerful nation on Earth, just as the Zionist myth of the so-called holocaust – the foundation myth of the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine – keeps all other Western governments in thrall and obedient. A thralldom evident, for example, in the acceptance of holocaustianity by the current British Prime Minister who recently stated that belief in holocaustianity was “a sacred, national mission.” {7}

Is there an alternative to belief in such an ancient religious myth and in the acceptance of the belief that the Zionists and the Zionist entity are on the side of God?

Yes: it is the alternative of National Socialism. But not the Hollywood type of Nazism and White racialism {8} in which the modern myth of the holocaust and hate and misogyny play a central role. But the authentic National Socialism manifest in the deeds and writings of the likes of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle {9}.

The Hollywood type of Nazism and of White racialism – the Zionist myth about National Socialism and racialism – has conjured up people like Jack Renshaw and Thomas Mair who in their cowardice and weakness both fantasized about killing women, with Mair succeeding in his Hollywood-inspired plan to kill a defenceless woman.

Would the likes of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle, of SS-Obersturmfuhrer Per Sorensen, or SS-Obersturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny, or Major-General Otto Ernst Remer, have murdered defenceless women? Of course not.

That the Hollywood propaganda version of Nazism and of White racialism – with its hatred, its misogyny, and its often reliance on Judeo-Christian myths and values – still dominates the lands of the West is indicative of just how powerful and influential modern Zionists have been and still are.

As does the fact that the genuine National Socialism – of the likes of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle, SS-Obersturmfuhrer Per Sorensen, SS-Obersturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny, and Major-General Otto Ernst Remer {9} – is apparently unknown among the majority who in the 21st century profess to be either National Socialists or White nationalists.
