Occult Xenosystems

O9A Insight Role


While the following article was written some years before Mr Myatt published his perceptive translations of and commentary on various tracts of the Corpus Hermeticum {1} it nonetheless deserves reproducing here since it provides an insight into how one insightful individual perceived the Order Of Nine Angles.

“The swirling delirium at the new /pol/ is at least 80% noise, but it includes some real intelligence (in both senses of the word), and not solely of a comedic variety. The sheer dirtiness of its signal makes it a powerful antenna, picking up on connections and information sources that tidier discussions would dismiss as pollution. This makes it especially suited to conspiracy theorizing, both inane and exotic.

While noting the importance of correction for narcissistic bias, which operates through selective attention, memorization, and (from commentators here) communication, it seems as if this blog is referenced disproportionately by the most extravagant NRx-sensitive /pol/ conspiracists. That is quite understandable. Occult philosophy, secrecy, crypsis, codes, and obscurity are insistent themes here. Xenosystems is inclined towards arcane cultural games. It identifies cryptographic developments as keys to the emerging order of the world.

The primary philosophical task of this blog is to disturb unwarranted pretensions to knowing, in the name of a Pyrrhonian inspiration. In this regard, confusion, paradox, and uncertainty are communicative outcomes to be ardently embraced.

For the purposes of this post, an exceptionally exotic /pol/ suggestion provides the opportunity to make a comparatively compact and simple point. The occasion is a web of conjecture weaving together Xenosystems and The Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA, or omega9alpha). In addition to the (highly-recommended) link just provided, the relevant Wikipedia entry is also extremely stimulating.

Xenosystems micro-ethics is uncomfortable with soliciting belief (or invoking expectations of trust). It is necessary to note at this point, therefore, that the following remarks are not designed to appeal to credence, but merely to add testimonial information, to be accepted or rejected at will. In the world we now enter — of “sinister dialectic” — declarations of honesty are utterly debased. However, for what (little) it is worth, these are the facts as I understand and relay them.

The O9A is not entirely new to me, but it is not a gnosis I have studied, still less deliberately aligned with. The few hours of reading I have undertaken today is by far my most intense exposure to it to date. What little I have learnt about David Myatt has not attracted me to him as a thinker or political activist, despite certain impressive characteristics (his intellect and polyglot classicism most notably). With that said:
(1) Many convergent interests are soon apparent between Outside in and the O9A (as well as a not inconsiderable number of divergences).
(2) ‘We’ are both (I think) inclined to dismiss the pretensions of the individual intellect and will, which makes the possibility of connections around the back impossible to dismiss in a peremptory fashion. As one /pol/ ‘anonymous’ remarked: “why so sure that ONA would be the deepest layer, instead of just a japeful ruse?” Real connections, influences, and metaphysical roots are obscure.
(3) O9A is fascinating.

The point of this post (finally) is taken directly from Aleister Crowley. In the compilation of his qabbalistic writings entitled 777 (Alphanomic equivalent of Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law, although that is surely coincidental), he makes some introductory remarks on the topic of hermeticism. My copy of the book is temporarily misplaced, so I shall gloss them here. A secret, of the kind relevant to hermeticism, is not something known and then hidden as a matter of decision, but rather something that by its very nature resists revelation. Crowley proceeds to mock charlatan occultists who treat the numerical values of the Hebrew letters as secret information, to be revealed theatrically at some appropriate stage of initiation. Let whatever can now be known, be known, as lucidly and publicly as possible. Only that is truly hermetic which hides itself. Reality is not so destitute of intrinsically hidden things — of Integral Obscurity — that we need to replenish its coffers with our tawdry discretion.

Whatever might exist, in the way of an occult bond between Outside in and the O9A, it is not one that anybody is keeping secret. To emphasize the point, I am going to include the alpha9omega document in the Resources roll here, not as the acknowledgement of a connection, but as a clear statement that this stuff is not a secret. It is, however, about secrecy — and that is interesting.”

This compilation of texts about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) compliments the earlier compilation titled O9A: Truth And Propaganda. {1}

Both compilations are the response, from some of those who associate themselves with the O9A movement, to the propaganda, the lies, and the allegations made by a certain political advocacy group, and by others, and which group in March 2020 launched a campaign to get the O9A banned by the British government as a “terrorist group”. {2}

The texts in both compilations reveal the astonishing lack of knowledge about the O9A by that political advocacy group and by certain other journalists; a lack which is either deliberate – arising from hatred and prejudice – or arising because of a desire to spread propaganda about a declared enemy.

Unlike the anti-O9A propaganda spread by that political advocacy group and its minions, the articles and texts below give detailed references to O9A works and other sources.

Those who are seriously interested in studying the esoteric philosophy and praxis of the O9A should read the 300 page Seofonfeald Paeth trilogy, published in 2019 {3} and which trilogy provides an insight into the esoteric philosophy and praxis of the real O9A as opposed to the propaganda, the lies, and the allegations spread and made about the O9A by those with a certain political agenda and who have thus made the O9A into a kind of modern “Occult phantom menace.”

For this revised (May 3, 2020) edition we have added an additional appendix: Eleven Questions About The O9A.

The Anti-Fascist Campaign Against Mr Myatt


O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role


The anti-fascist campaign against David Myatt, the demonizing of Myatt, began in 1984 when Gerry Gable – of Jewish descent, a police informer, founder of the anti-fascist Searchlight organization and editor of the magazine of the same name – told the police that he had information that Mr Myatt was responsible for the murder of Hilda Murrell, an elderly and active campaigner for Nuclear Disarmament. {1}

As a result of receiving this information Detectives from Shrewsbury police interviewed Myatt twice. First at his home in Church Stretton, and then at his place of work, a large country house in South Shropshire where he was employed as a gardener. As a result of those interviews Myatt was eliminated from their inquiries.

Gable also informed Jenny Rathbone – a research assistant for ITV’s World in Action programme who were researching the murder of Hilda Murrell – about his suspicions regarding Myatt, as a result of which Jenny Rathbone interviewed Myatt and his then wife at their home in Church Stretton. Myatt – who at the time did not know the source of the allegations – denied any involvement, and, in the subsequent World in Action television programme about Hilda Murrell, Myatt was not mentioned.

Myatt was later to learn the source of the allegations and that they stemmed from the publication of his text Vindex, Destiny of the West in the January 1984 edition of George Dietz’s Liberty Bell magazine. {2} For Gable and his cohorts were outraged by Myatt’s defence of National Socialism and the Third Reich.

Despite this failure by Gable to have Myatt arrested and his failure to have Myatt smeared by the mainstream media, Gable continued to inform the police and the media about Myatt and his activities, culminating in 1998 when, having enlisted the help of Michael Whine – also of Jewish descent and then chairman of the influential Board of Deputies of British Jews – Detectives from SO12, Scotland Yard, {3} acting on the information received from Gable and Whine, conducted a dawn raid on Myatt’s home, then in a village near Malvern where he lived with his third wife and two children and worked on a nearby farm. The raid was named Operation Periphery.

The Detectives searched Myatt’s house for around seven hours, seized his computers and files, and arrested him on suspicion of incitement to murder and incitement to racial hatred, {4} and interviewed him at Malvern police station. Myatt was later released on bail, pending further inquires, with one of his bail conditions being that he attended Charing Cross police station in London on a regular basis. {5}

However, the fact that Myatt, in 1998, was on bail charged with various and serious criminal offences did not deter Gable and his cohorts from publishing a special edition of Searchlight magazine in April 1998 under the headline The Most Evil Nazi in Britain. {6} It seems they were most annoyed at Myatt founding and leading the National-Socialist Movement which consisted of the hundred or so members of Combat 18 still loyal to Charlie Sargent, the founder of Combat 18.

In their hatred of Myatt, the anti-fascist Searchlight crowd – which at the time included Myatt-baiter Nick Lowles – made, in that edition of their Searchlight magazine, scurrilous allegations about Myatt and about his alleged involvement with the Order of Nine Angles without providing anything probative – any evidence – for their allegations.

Their campaign against Myatt continued, resulting in articles about Myatt in their July 2000 special edition of Searchlight devoted to the London “nail-bomber” David Copeland, and in which edition of their magazine Myatt was described as a “theoretician of terror” with Searchlight repeating their unproven and malicious allegations about Myatt being involved with Satanism.

The Searchlight campaign against Myatt resulted in him being interviewed by a reporter and film-crew from the BBC television programme Panorama who were making a “documentary” about David Copeland. An extract from that interview was included in the broadcast programme. {7} Unsurprisingly, the Myatt-baiter, and fanatical anti-fascist, Nick Lowles was an assistant producer of that television programme.

Following the semi-retirement of Gerry Gable from Searchlight due to ill-health, and the departure from Searchlight of Nick Lowles (due to him, so we are informed, trying to bribe Sonia Gable, wife of Gerry Gable) and then the rise of Lowles as an anti-fascist media pundit – aided by the influential billionaire George Soros, also of Jewish descent – the campaign against Myatt was dormant for many years as Myatt-baiter Nick Lowles concentrated on consolidating his position as Britain’s leading “authority” on modern British fascism, creating his so-called “Hope Not Hate” organization in the process.

Then in 2019, with his media-position and that of his so-called “Hope Not Hate” organization secured as “authorities” on modern British fascism, Lowles returned to his Myatt-baiting, writing a 2019 article about the Order of Nine Angles and an article about Myatt which were strewn with errors and replete with unproven allegations. {8} He even claimed to have interviewed Myatt in 2001 when in fact the interview took place in 1998, as attested by both the July 2000 edition of Searchlight magazine and by Myatt himself. {9} It was most pleasing to the Myatt-baiting Lowles that the mainstream media in Britain – such as The Daily Telegraph, The Sun, The Guardian – reproduced his allegations about Myatt and the Order of Nine Angles verbatim and did not bother to have their journalists investigate the facts.

However, not content with this, the Myatt-baiting Lowles – financed as he still was by the influential billionaire George Soros, and employing as he did and does The Big Lie technique – repeated his malicious and unproven allegations about Myatt again not only in a “Hope Not Hate” report published in 2020 but also in various internet “podcasts”. {10}

Despite being challenged to provide actual evidence for his allegations {11} he has failed to do so. Meanwhile, others – such as journalists Jake Hanrahan and the BBC’s Daniel De Simone {12} – have accepted without question what the Myatt-baiting Lowles has written and said. Which of itself goes to prove just how effective The Big Lie technique is in our modern times.

All of which raises the question of just why Mr Myatt – from 1984 to the present – has been the subject of anti-fascist, and of Jewish, hatred and propaganda.

Is what Myatt wrote during his neo-nazi years (1968-1998) so dangerous to the current Magian status quo? {13}{2} Is his recent – post-2011 – pagan philosophy of pathei-mathos also so dangerous to the current Magian status quo? {14}

If so, that would explain such a hateful and long-lasting campaign to discredit him.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update


Atu III, Richard Moult


Today, Monday 23 March 2020, the Prime Minister of Britain – grandson of a Russian Jew, and great-grandson of a Turkish Muslim – sits like a dictator in a plush room flanked by the national flag, and by means of a live televised broadcast announced to the nation that even more tyrannical measures will be introduced which will severely restrict the rights and liberties of ordinary citizens. All the name of “public safety” and “protecting life”.

For now – today – “public safety”, protecting life, and the fight – the war – against the new viral enemy has replaced slogans about the fight – the war – against terrorism and replaced even older slogans about the so-called “evil” of Nazi Germany and the need to fight a “total war” in order to protect and save democracy. The rhetoric is the same: only the name of the enemy, and the means to fight this new war, have changed.

Meanwhile, the social fabric of our British society – going to the pub, to bars, to restaurants, going to concerts and events, playing or spectating at outdoor sports, sending our children to school, and so on – slowly breaks down. There is no time-scale for when life will return to normal. If, after this, it can ever return to normal.

What is happening is dystopian. The powerful politicians, like the Prime Minister, the wealthy and the well-connected, continue with their lavish lifestyles in their mansions or in their large residences with their manicured gardens, while ordinary folk have to endure shortages of food and domestic essentials, lose their jobs because their places of work have been shut down, and are told to stay indoors or risk fines or risk being taken away and forcibly placed in isolation. Gatherings in public of more than two people who do not live together have been declared illegal.

That there is no vocal or organized dissent – in the media, from politicians, even from anarchists and nationalists – about the severe and unprecedented and tyrannical restrictions of the rights and liberties of ordinary citizens is extraordinary. It is as if the majority of people uncritically believe what the government and the media tell them. Which belief and lack of active dissent allows tyranny to survive and propser.

Yet the government policy of (i) isolating ourselves – for up to 12 weeks in the case of those considered to be most at risk in terms of health – and (ii) of “social distancing” and (iii) of “lockdown”, of closing pubs, bar, restaurants, and other aspects of our social society, is not based on fact but on speculation.

The speculation is that hundreds of thousands of people will die if government policy is not followed and enforced. That we would be selfish and irresponsible if we did not do what the government demanded. There is currently no data, no verifiable research, which supports such speculation.

What the latest data – March 21-23, 2020 – does reveal is that worldwide there have been 332,935 confirmed cases and have been 14,510 deaths. {1} In Britain there have been 5,683 confirmed cases and 281 deaths.

This means that the survival rate – even in the worst affected areas, such as Italy and Spain – is greater than 90%. In other words, Covid-19 is not a new Black Death; not a pandemic like the Spanish influenza of 1918. And thus does not require such draconian, such tyrannical, measures.

In addition, the policy of isolation, of social distancing and of “lockdown” does not allow for community – herd – immunity, which for millennia has been Nature’s way of protecting us, en masse, from pandemics. This is the immunity that develops in the general population because those who have been infected and survived pass on such immunity to others as a result of social contact. This is what occurred, for example, during the 1968-1969 Hong Kong influenza pandemic the death toll from which was reduced because a significant portion of people had some immunity to the virus as a result of community immunity.

What the government and their vocal supporters in the media and elsewhere also do not want to acknowledge is that it is a fact of life, part of our nature as mortal biological beings, that many of us die from disease, viral or otherwise; that elderly people are more prone to die from infections – viral or otherwise; that epidemics and pandemics and disease – from the Black Death to the Spanish 1918 pandemic to malaria – are a fact of Nature and a means whereby we have changed, evolved; that we can either accept the power of Nature, and who and what we are, or we can try to struggle against Nature and try to conquer Nature and believe we are fighting a war against epidemics and pandemics and disease.

The government and others have chosen to struggle against Nature since it seems that they want to be seen as “saviours” in a much hyped “new war” against Nature, and because they fear that the option of working with Nature – through community immunity, and allowing our societies to carry on almost as normal – may mean they will be somehow blamed for inaction when people die during the new pandemic.

In other words, they have taken the short-term, short-sighed, political option, disrupting society in an unprecedented way, rather than the option that ancestral wisdom, that an understanding of Nature reveals: of community immunity; of ourselves as biological beings prone to illness and accidents, and of how epidemics and pandemics can be a means whereby we as a species change and evolve. As The Black Death – which unlike Covid-19 was almost always fatal – brought about positive social, religious, and political changes and the European Renaissance itself; for as Nietzsche wrote, Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich stärker.

That such ancestral wisdom is enshrined in the modern political philosophy of National Socialism {2} is, of course, one more reason why modern Western politicians and the media have chosen the short-term, short-sighed, political option of disrupting society in an unprecedented way. For they have so demonized National Socialism and the folk society of The Third Reich for so many decades – made it a modern heresy – that the majority of our folk have no conception of how that political philosophy enshrines our native, our European, ancestral wisdom.

Which ancestral wisdom does not mean the heartless way of being indifferent to suffering and letting people die, as politicians and many others mistakenly believe. Rather it means caring for the sick and the dying; letting society function almost as normal; allowing for the development of community immunity, and introducing measures which encourage the benefits of outdoor exercise. There is only one country in the world which, so far, has taken this route: Russia, where its leader Vladimir Putin has not imposed “lockdown” and who recently was out and about in Crimea, meeting crowds and shaking hands, and not socially-distancing himself. {3} This natural approach by President Putin – this ray of hope – may, however, change. If it does change {4} then we who are of European descent face a bleak future, our only hope – it seems to me – to carry within our hearts the truth about National Socialism and personally pass on this truth to others.

Ban The O9A: Latest Update


O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role


20 March, 2020 ev. The petition organized by the “hate not hope” group {1} to ban the O9A as a “terrorist” organization was delivered to the British Home Office a few days ago and contained a measly 13,000 signatures by those – including members of the British parliament – who had obviously not done any personal research into the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) but who instead relied on the lies and propaganda pedaled by the “hate not hope” group {2} and by its so-called “chief executive” Nick Lowles who is obsessed with Mr Myatt {3}.

If the British Home Office – a ministerial department of the British government responsible for security and law and order – does decide, on the basis of a petition with a measly 13,000 signatures, to ban the O9A then that would be a triumph for the O9A and for its Labyrinthos Mythologicus {4}.

             “This attention, and the casting of the O9A as the world’s most extreme far-right terror group, not only works to our advantage but is also a natural part of our sinister dialectic.” {4}

Coronavirus: A Dissenting And Pagan View


Richard Moult: Atu XX


March 18, 2020. The new pandemic caused by a new virus – Covid-19, commonly called Coronavirus – has led politicians in Western societies to panic, to act on the basis of speculation rather than on the basis of verifiable data; to introduce radical restrictions on people – such as severely restricting foreign travel and closing schools, cancelling sporting events, shutting down theaters, restricting public gatherings, closing Underground Stations in London, and telling people to stay indoors on pain of arrest {1} – and to declare things such as “we are in a war against an invisible killer,” {2} and Nous sommes en guerre {3}.

The result has been the greatest disruption in Western societies since World War Two, with the attitude among politicians and many others amounting to declaring that “we are at war with Nature” amid the scramble to try and contain the spread of the virus.

The disruption and restrictions and draconian legislation are based on speculation that the new virus will have a severe mortality rate; a rate much greater than the 1% to 2% of influenza pandemics such as the one between 1968 and 1969. Hence the claim – unsupported by actual data – that there will be at least 250,000 deaths from Covid-19 in Britain alone.

Yet a study of the data currently available reveals a mortality rate of around 2% in places such as Italy and America and Britain, with many of those who died being elderly and having underlying and often serious health problems. In addition, many of those who have been infected – such as Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, and David and Sally Abel, whose cases were widely reported in the media – suffered mild symptoms and recovered within a few weeks. Which recovery by so many is what a mortality rate of around 2% indicates. {4}{5}

The formulation and implementation of government policy on the basis of speculation and on the basis of a “worst case scenario”, the lack of dissent especially among politicians and journalists, and the scramble to try and contain the spread of the virus through restrictive and draconian measures, are indicative of the fact that we humans – even after a century of scientific and technological advances based on reason, scientific experimentation, and verifiable research – can still react in an irrational and fearful way and still uphold the hubriatic belief that “we are in a war” with – or should be at war with – a natural occurrence.

Which arrogant, hubriatic, belief – based on the assumptions that we are, could be, should be, masters of Earth, of Nature, and can solve all problems, environmental, political, social while remaining as we are – has led to us causing the climate change which our planet is now undergoing. It has also led to us forgetting a fundamental principle of biological life: which is that all biological beings die, and that there are natural causes over which we have no control despite what we in our hubris and egoism like to believe.

In effect, our politicians and many others have neglected or forgotten or never known certain truths, a certain wisdom. Truths, a wisdom, known for example by those with long-experience of the oceans, of the Sea: of its raw power, its unpredictability, and of how we humans can be and often are powerless when confronted with that power, that unpredictability.

Truths, a wisdom, known when some new or old disease afflicts us, and when we – or our relatives or our friends or loved ones – die from such a disease or from natural causes or from some accident of life.

That prideful, hubriatic, attitude – which overestimates our abilities and our power as biological beings who are doomed sometime, somewhere, somehow, to die – is enshrined in such slogans as “Cancer: we’re coming to get you” since we are in effect saying “Death: we’re coming to get you,” as if we can, should, somehow forestall the inevitable.

What, thus, has been and is being neglected or forgotten or never known is a simple truth known to most if not all ancestral traditions and which truth formed one of the foundations of ancient Western paganism. A truth which a modern pagan mystic expressed by quoting an expression originally in Ancient Greek: “Our ending arrives whenever wherever the Moirai [the Fates] decide.” {6}

In practical terms this truth means a rather laissez-faire – stoical – attitude to life, an attitude exemplified by the reality behind the now much maligned British phrase “stiff upper lip” and the now much satirized slogan “Keep Calm And Carry On”.

For myself, and in respect of this manufactured Covid-19 crisis, I intend to live as normal; ignoring the panic and the waffle and the fear-mongering of politicians and others.

As a pagan I am content to die when and how the Fates – the gods, the Kosmos, Nature herself – decree. Until that moment there is life, living, to be savoured and enjoyed in a life-affirming pagan way.

The recent and, as of 15 March 2020 ongoing, campaign by an antifascist political interest group to have the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) banned by the British government not only required two things in particular but also implies something important about our epoch – about the societies of the modern West – and about what has become, since World War Two, its shared ethos and its orthodoxy.

One requirement was that the campaign be based on the Big Lie (große Lüge) technique of propaganda where a lie – or several lies – is or are repeated so often by so many and by various means that a large proportion of people accept the lie or lies as fact even though nothing probative – no evidence based on primary sources – is ever presented. The second requirement is that the enemy or enemies – in this case the O9A and Mr Myatt – are demonized by many and various means, which in this epoch means through social media platforms, through the mainstream media such as newspapers and pseudo-documentaries, via the medium of websites and forums, and by the leaders and activists of an antifascist political interest group meeting with mainstream politicians, and the police, and spinning their yarns and their lies in the hope of influencing or persuading those politicians and the police.

What is implied by this antifascist campaign is that both the campaign itself and the antifascist political interest group represent the orthodoxy, the ethos, of our epoch with the O9A and Mr Myatt perceived as enemies who seek to undermine and replace that orthodoxy with a new ethos. In other words, they are perceived as heretics although the anti-O9A campaign, the antifascist political interest group, and their supporters, are careful not to use the word heretic in respect of the O9A and Mr Myatt since if they do use that word some people may discover the truth about the current orthodoxy. Instead, they use expressions such as “promoting hate speech” and “promoting extremism” and “encouraging terrorism”.


The Lies Of Nick Lowles


O9A Insight Role
O9A Insight Role


Three months ago, in December 2019, we published an open letter to Nick Lowles {1} challenging him to provide evidence for his claims and correct the errors about the O9A and Myatt made in his articles about the O9A and Myatt in a much publicized 2019 report issued by his political advocacy group. {2} In that letter we stated that:

            “Given your much Media hyped ‘research and security’ departments we expect you to know our e-mail address as supplied to both the author of the Quietus article about the O9A and to the TV production company Expectation Factual.”

As we expected, Lowles neither contacted us nor provided anything probative – any evidence – for his claims. Instead, in March 2020, he in his 2020 report and by means of two videos published on “social media” platforms {3} repeated and added to his claims; made new accusations, committed more logical fallacies and repeated previous ones. {4} Since he provided no evidence whatsoever for his claims and accusations we ourselves, and sagacious others, concluded five things.

First, that he and his political advocacy group were biased and prejudiced and were producing propaganda; that is, expressing preconceived opinion, bias, partiality, hostility. Thus, rather than championing hope they were championing prejudice and hatred; prejudice and hatred against and of the O9A and against and of Mr Myatt.

Second, that he, and his political advocacy group and their supporters, were either ignorant about, lacked knowledge concerning, the true nature of esoteric philosophy of the O9A – as expounded in works such as the 300 page Seofonfeald Paeth – or that they were so prejudiced, so full of an irrational hostility, so enmeshed in a political ideology, that they dismissed or ignored anything that contradicted their beliefs and assumptions about the O9A and about Mr Myatt; ignorant of or refusing to believe, for example, that Myatt was – as evident in his post-2011 writings {5} – a reformed person who had rejected extremism.

Third, that the mainstream media were complicit in spreading the propaganda and the “fake news” of a biased political advocacy group by repeating their claims and accusations without having their journalists do their own research – check the facts, using readily available primary sources {6} – and then make an unbiased assessment based on such research.

Fourth – as evident by the thousands and thousands of people, including members of the British parliament, who signed a petition, organized by that biased political advocacy group, for the British government to ban the O9A – that large numbers of people in our society are or can be swayed by propaganda, by the preconceived opinion, bias, partiality, hostility, and the ignorance, of others. For just like the aforementioned journalists they did not bother, did not have the skepticism, to research the facts, using primary sources, and then make an unbiased assessment based on such research.

Fifth, that the mainstream media is not now – or perhaps never really was – a reliable source of information; and that despite over a century of compulsory education for children, a large section of people, included elected “representatives of democracy”, remain uncultured and thus liable to accept, to believe, the propaganda of a biased political advocacy group; liable to believe without question “fake news” repeated in the mainstream media, and possess no desire, no skeptical curiosity, to research the facts, using primary sources, and then make an unbiased assessment based on such research.

It is therefore no surprise that the O9A champions the principle of καλὸς κἀγαθός {7} and no surprise that Lowles has refused to provide evidence from primary sources for his accusations, claims, and lies about the O9A and about Myatt, not only because there no such evidence, nothing probative, to support those accusations, claims, and lies, but also because it seems to be in his nature, and in the nature of his political advocacy group, to put propaganda – preconceived opinion, bias, partiality, hostility – before truth and hope.

It is also no surprise that when in 1998 Myatt challenged Lowles to a duel with deadly weapons the cowardly Lowles ignored the challenge, with Myatt writing:

           “When Lowles sometime later published his account of our meeting I was unsurprised at his journalistic embellishments. For he saught to portray me in a particular and negative way – as perhaps his adherence to an anti-fascist ideology demanded – while portraying himself in a positive manner, forgetting to mention of course that I had not only invited him to partake in a duel with deadly weapons for publishing misinformation about me but had also invited him to dinner at my then home near Malvern, both of which cordial invitations he declined thus leaving me with my honour intact and he hiding behind a certain ideology.” {8}

One particular fallacy Lowles repeatedly commits is secundum quid et simpliciter, using particular individual cases to form a general rule to then use that rule to describe, and thence to blame, or to castigate, or to defame a whole group. Thus, and for example, he uses the cases of some individuals claimed to be influenced by the O9A to make claims about the O9A, such as that the O9A is misogynistic and encourages sexual violence.

Since the O9A is a movement – a sub-culture based on a particular esoteric philosophy – the views or the actions of a few individuals or supporters logically cannot be used to defame that movement. No rational person, for instance, would blame Christianity for the actions of a person such as Anders Breivik or for the fanaticism of Matthew Hopkins.

In addition, as mentioned many times in recent texts and articles, sources – such as https://wyrdsister.wordpress.com/2020/03/12/fallacies-of-anti-o9a-propaganda/ and https://wyrdsister.wordpress.com/2019/02/26/how-to-spread-fake-news/ – refute the claim that the O9A is misogynistic and encourages sexual violence.

{5} Refer, for example, to works by Myatt such as Understanding and Rejecting Extremism, and his Extremism And Reformation.

As noted in The Demonizing Of Mr Myatt,

           “If the chief executive of a certain political advocacy group has indeed bothered to read such post-2011 writings by Myatt, is the chief executive in his fanaticism and prejudice under the delusion that such writings are the work of ‘an evil mastermind’ and thus designed to deceive?

Failure by him to provide answers to such questions is not an option. For if he believes such a delusion that such writings are designed to deceive, then surely it expresses something about the psyche of chief executive, about his own physis, about his character, and about his own personal and political agenda.”

{6} In relation to the O9A, primary sources include The Seofonfeald Paeth, Dyssolving: Diary of an Internal Adept, The Deofel Quartet, and Naos (available, as of March 2020 from https://lapisphilosophicus.wordpress.com/naos/ )

In relation to Myatt, primary sources are A Matter Of Honour, and the works available at https://davidmyatt.wordpress.com/2018/03/09/david-myatt-opera-omnia/

A study of such primary sources would have exposed the lies, the false accusations, made by Lowles and his political advocacy group about the O9A and about Myatt; lies and false accusations repeated in the mainstream media.

An Example of Exeatic and Metaphysical Living

David Myatt


Evola re-interprets the notion of War as a metaphysical duty. At the centre of a traditional society Evola locates a spiritual elite from which warriors derive their ultimate reason of being, their supreme justification of their actions. According to the traditional concept the warrior does not fight as a servile caste, is not a ‘profession’ or a mercenary as in a capitalist system. The warrior caste has its own spiritual and distinct way of living, its own rituals, and the act of fighting becomes a spiritual practice. This can be compared to the cult of Eastern combat which integrates fighting techniques with the Numinous. This is the definition of metaphysical warriorship.

[David] Myatt’s life has been a supreme example of this kind of exeatic and metaphysical living, and the West was clearly not ready to accept such a living as an example of a regeneration of the European man and his Volk. Georges Bataille was also drawn to this kind of living although he would not have supported the choices made by Myatt. Nevertheless the mysticism of Myatt, his Numinous Living, is a grand example of an ongoing Innerer Krieg and an ongoing influence of the sinister forces of the Sphere of Mars. Evola talks about ‘a spiritualized personality’, namely a personality realized according to its supernatural (metaphysical) destiny.

A Yuletide Listening

Order Of Nine Angles


In one of those Yuletide moments when – replete with mulled Cider and mince pies and warmed by a fire of logs – we three trawled the Internet for apposite items and found the following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIkYhf3toG8

Which talk – by a Scottish “A.N. Other” – presents a remarkably rational and informed summary, by an outsider, of both the O9A and especially of Mr David Myatt.

Which talk is in stark contrast to the much Media hyped remarks in February 2019 by the misnamed British “hope not hate” organization {1} and which left-wing advocacy group, according to the admins of Wikipedia, is “a biased and opinionated source”. {2}

That the mainstream Western Media have promoted and will undoubtedly continue to uncritically promote the views of that “biased and opinionated source” in respect of both the O9A and Myatt surely – at least to us and others of our O9A kindred – exposes, yet again, something about the nature of such modern Media.
