Bashing Howard Levey Yet Again

Baphomet, Dark Goddess


Knowledge And Culture Verses Plebeian Pretentiousness
Or, Let Us Bash Howard Stanton Levey Yet Again

One of the very many things that self-described modern satanists – and followers of the likes of Crowley and Aquino – never comment upon, and have never commented on in over three decades, is the esoteric knowledge and the culture displayed by the Order of Nine Angles.

Whereas the sources of Howard Stanton Levey – evident in his ‘satanic bible’ and his letters – are populist interpretations of the likes of Nietzsche and Ayn Rand, populist books about psychology, with the polemic Might Is Right perhaps a central source {1} – the sources used by the pseudonymous Anton Long (of O9A fame) are ancient and primary and reveal a certain erudition on the part of Anton Long himself, as for instance, Professor Monette – an accomplished linguist himself – noted in Mr Long “having fluency in the classical languages (Greek and Latin), as well as Arabic and possibly Persian” {2} and thus in being able to read philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle, and important Hermetic texts such as the Corpus Hermeticum, in the original Greek, as well as being able to read the Latin of medieval European alchemical texts, and the Arabic of such early books of sorcery as Ghayat al-Hakim and Shams I-Maarif.

In the case of primary sources, when Anton Long wrote about such things as a septenary system he is referencing Greco-Roman sources such as the Pymander tractate of the Corpus Hermeticum. When he uses the term ‘Star Gate’ he was referencing the use of the term Gate by primary sources such as The Compound of Alchymie written in 1471 CE by George Ripley and included in the 1652 book Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum {3}. When he references ‘severed heads’ in relation to ancestral tradition he is drawing on sources such as Diodorus Siculus. When he uses the term Naos, he is drawing on sources such as Pausanius. When he writes about Baphomet as ‘the mother/mistress of blood’ his sources include ancient Greek texts such as De Mysteriis {4}. And so on and so on.

The neglect by Occultists and academics of these primary and ancient sources, in respect of Anton Long’s esoteric philosophy and Occult praxis, is gradually being rectified by texts such as the 2015 compilation ἀρρενόθηλυς by R. Parker and essays such as Originality, Tradition, And The Order of Nine Angles by the same author, as well as the release of new ‘Esoteric Notes’ such as ONA Esoteric Notes XLVII in which it is suggested that Renaissance Latin texts such as De Vita Coelitus Comparanda by Marsilii Ficini (published in 1489 CE) are among the sources used by Anton Long.

This understanding of the non-Qabalistic, and ancient, sources used – in their original language – by Anton Long makes Howard Stanton Levey seem, in comparison, somewhat uncultured and plebeian.


{1} Aquino, of Temple of Set fame, has described, at some length, in his 2009 book The Church of Satan the sources Levey used.

While Aquino may have in part been motivated by a desire to legitimize his Temple of Set, his analysis stands up to critical scrutiny. An archive version of a pre-publication draft of Aquino’s The Church of Satan is available [as of September 2016] here:

For example, the Appendix The Hidden Source Of The Satanic Philosophy describes how Levey’s Nine Satanic Statements are derived from Ayn Rand.

Joy Of The Sinister

A Propaganda Triumph

Order Of Nine Angles


A Propaganda Triumph

We have to admit that we – our pro-NS nexion {1} – and several other O9A nexions and individuals were most pleased by the much read article titled Beyond The Iron Gates: How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground which was recently published on a well-known and popular internet based music magazine.

For the article enhanced not only the “evil”, the sinister, the neo-nazi, reputation of The Order Of Nine Angles, but also the reputation of David Myatt/Anton Long who was described as “a former mercenary and bodyguard to fascist British Movement leader Colin Jordan” and as having a “lifelong aim of destroying Judeo-Christian culture.”

In addition, the article credited the O9A with having around 2,000 adherents worldwide and speculated about “how many unsolved hate crimes in Europe and the US are O9A style opfers.”

That said, about hype and propaganda, the typos in the article and the spurious “sic” comment – regarding the use of the apostrophe followed by “s” as, for example, in 1970’s, rather than 1970s – as well as the committal by the anonymous author of fallacies such as a dicto secundum quid ad dictum simpliciter and that Incomplete Evidence, reveals the tabloid nature, the coarseness, the mundane, nature, of the article.

For, in respect of their “sic” comment, an apostrophe followed by “s” was an accepted dating convention for decades before some “committees” decided to abandon the former in favour of the latter. As someone mentioned in a comment on the controversy,
                   “when I went to school we were all taught to write 1960’s, etc. The change to omitting the apostrophe is a quite recent one.”

Furthermore, as the O9A wrote in their O9A Esoteric Notes LXXVI,
                  “Standardization of spelling in the English language is a relatively recent convention. For centuries after manuscripts such as Beowulf were written in Old English and for centuries after books were first printed in the English language copyists and authors continued to use different spelling of certain words.
                   For instance from the 16th century (ev) until at least the 19th century (ev) the word now conventionally spelt Alchemy might be spelt Alchymie, alchymye, alkamye, alkemye, alkamy, and alkemie, among other variants, including a variant used in the 18th century in the US State of Virginia: achemy, qv. B. W. Green, Word-book of Virginia Folk-Speech published in 1899.”

That the anonymous author of the How Nazi-Satanists Infiltrated the UK Underground article was possibly unaware of such minutiae is further evidence both of his/her lack of research into the O9A and of the tabloid nature, the coarseness, the mundane nature, of their article. Or – dare we say – was intentional, and thus evidence of its positive (for us) propaganda value and therefore evidence of the “sinister” intent of the anonymous author who was writing for a particular (a mundane) audience.

That so many mundanes have accepted the contents of that article as the gospel truth about the O9A we find most amusing and most indicative.

Indicative, in that their acceptance of such propaganda enhances the “evil”, the sinister, the neo-nazi, reputation, of both The Order Of Nine Angles and of David Myatt.

Amusing, because we are most pleased and have to admit that we imagined that the article might well have been commissioned by, or written by, “one of us”.

The Two Interpretations Of National Socialism


The Two Interpretations Of National Socialism
Ours And Theirs

Since we – identifying as O9A and as an independent O9A nexion applying the esoteric philosophy of the Order of Nine Angles including its code of kindred honour – have previously stated that we interpret that philosophy as anti-Magian in essence and as National-Socialist in exoteric practice and as required by the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic, it is necessary for us to describe in detail what we mean by National-Socialism, since our understanding of National-Socialism is very different from that of the majority of self-described “neo-nazis”.

Just as there are two latter-day interpretations of Satanism – the ‘modern American’ type manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey) and the ‘traditional Satanism’ as manifest in the Occult philosophy and the praxis of the Order of Nine Angles {1} – so there are two latter-day interpretations of National Socialism.

These two interpretations of National Socialism are, as described in the following article, (i) that of the majority of self-described “neo-nazis”, and (ii) that of the Reichsfolk group.

The National-Socialism that we interpret as embodying the anti-Magian essence of the O9A and the exoteric practice of the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic is the non-racist Reichsfolk version.

A New Interpretation Of National Socialism

What is not widely known in the modern Western world is that there are two very different interpretations of National Socialism. “Ours” – that of groups such as Reichsfolk and of those who know and who appreciate the writings and deeds of people such as Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle {1} – and that of the majority of latter-day self-described “neo-nazis”.

Latter-Day Neo-Nazism And The National-Socialism Of Reichsfolk

The first and most well-known latter-day interpretation of National Socialism is that of the majority of self-described “neo-nazis”, and which interpretation is accepted by most anti-fascists who actively oppose such modern “neo-nazis”.

This is the National Socialism with a belief in a strong, powerful, nation-State, and with an overt racist ideology. A National Socialism with a dislike – often hatred – of non-White immigrants and non-White neighbours; with a belief in the instinct of “might is right” and the necessity of kampf; with a dislike – even a hatred – of those whose love is for someone of the same gender; a National Socialism with a misogyny based on the masculous instinct that it is the natural duty of most women to be wives and home-makers; and a National Socialism with a dislike – even a hatred – of Islam and Muslims.

The second, and not very well-known, interpretation of National Socialism is that of the “revisionist”, non-racist, National-Socialism developed by David Myatt in the 1990s and manifest in the Reichsfolk group {2} inspired as this version was by Myatt’s meetings with Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle and by his correspondence with Jost Turner whose vision was of a new Aryan folk-community in America and of other “NS kindred” communities around the world.

In this Myattian interpretation of National-Socialism {3} it is regarded as both (i) “an ethnic philosophy which affirms that the different races, the different peoples, which exist are expressions of our human condition, and that these differences, this human diversity, should be treasured in the same way we treasure the diversity of Nature. National-Socialists believe our world would be poorer were these human differences to be destroyed through abstract ideas,” and as (ii) “a pure expression of our own unique Aryan ethics, based as these ethics are upon the idealism of duty to the folk, duty to Nature, and upon the nobility of personal honour.” {4}

It is also the National-Socialism which rejects the notion of a strong, powerful, modern nation-State in favour of new ethnic folk-communities and which National-Socialism is not politically active “on the streets” but instead is “a social, educational, cultural, and spiritual, movement based upon and dedicated to disseminating the noble principles of ethical, non-racist, National-Socialism which are honour, reason, fairness, loyalty, duty to one’s own folk and to Nature, and respect for and understanding of other cultures and other ways of life.” {2}

In simple terms, the Myattian interpretation of National-Socialism is based on both honour and race, whereas the neo-nazism of most modern nazis and of modern neo-nazi political groups is based on the glorification of race and the glorification of “racial struggle” at the expense of personal honour; a difference Myatt emphasised is his essay A Brief Criticism of William Pierce, written in 114yf,
                  “The main weakness of the theorizing of Pierce is that he has failed to see that it is a combination of race and honour which defines National-Socialism, and which should define the racialist movement in general. Without the evolutionary, moral, concept of honour, there is only the inhuman ethics of the past, and in practice this leads to the creation of people who are ignoble and societies which are anti-evolutionary. Thus, Pierce is firmly stuck in the past: an ignoble past of unreason and dishonour.
                  This lack of an ethical dimension to his thinking leads to him supporting the old concept of racial struggle and the inhuman consequence of considering that some races are superior to others.” {5}

Myatt expanded upon this in his seminal text Esoteric Hitlerism: Idealism, the Third Reich and the Essence of National-Socialism,
                  “An affirmation of race without an affirmation honour is not National-Socialism, just as an affirmation of honour without an affirmation of race is not National-Socialism. It is this living, organic, dialectic of honour and race which defines National-Socialism itself, and a National-Socialist is an individual who strives to do their honourable duty to both their own race and Nature herself, of which other human races are a part.
                  That is, a National-Socialist must always be honourable, whatever the consequences, or the perceived consequences. Quite often, this means a National-Socialist is faced with what seems to be difficult choices and difficult decisions, although in reality if National-Socialism itself is properly understood, there is no conflict, no moral dilemma and no difficulty in doing the right, the honourable, thing.                   Thus if something, some act or deed, seems to affirm race – or be beneficial to one’s race – but is dishonourable, then that something is not something a National-Socialist should do. What honour does is define our duty to our race and other races – it prevents us from committing hubris.” {5}

In addition, in Myatt’s revisionist version of National-Socialism there is no misogyny, for the NS Code of Honour applies equally to both men and women,
                  “A man or woman of honour treats others courteously, regardless of their culture, religion, status, and race, and is only disdainful and contemptuous of those who, by their attitude, actions and behaviour, treat they themselves with disrespect or try to personally harm them, or who treat with disrespect or try to harm those whom the individual man or woman of honour have personally sworn loyalty to or whom they champion.” {6}

Our National-Socialism

The National-Socialism of Reichsfolk is Myatt’s revisionist, non-racist, ethical, version of National-Socialism.

This is the National-Socialism where
                   “a true National-Socialist knows or feels that some things are honourable, and other things are dishonourable. It is dishonourable, for instance – cowardly and unfair and uncivilized – for several people to attack and try to injure or kill a single individual.
                  Thus, if several Caucasians attack one Negro, they are acting dishonourably – they are being uncivilized and cowardly. A true National-Socialist would never do such a thing. They would always want to see, or take part in, a “fair fight”.
                  I myself – a life-long National-Socialist – would go to the aid of a Negro if I saw him being attacked by several Caucasians, for that would be the just, the fair, the honourable, the civilized and the National-Socialist thing to do. That so many people today who adhere to ‘political National Socialist’ organizations do not agree with this just shows how far these so-called ‘National Socialists’ are from genuine National-Socialism. Which, incidently, is why I always write ‘National-Socialism’ rather than National Socialism.”

This is also the National-Socialism where there is respect for the Muslim way of life and Muslim culture, with honourable co-operation between National-Socialists and Muslims regarded as desirable {8}.

That this revisionist, non-racist, ethical, version of National-Socialism is not appreciated – and certainly not understood – in the societies of the modern West is regarded by our kind as just one more indication of just how successful the Magian, the hubriati, and the neo-nazi hordes of Homo Hubris, have been in propagating the Magian latter-day (mis)interpretation of National Socialism as something “racist”, homophobic, misogynist, anti-Muslim, and uncivilized.

The O9A: A Multi-Headed Mythical Beast


Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian



Editorial Note: We re-issue here, in full and in a slightly revised (updated) version, the classic O9A text Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian which forms part of the Vindex mythos; a mythos developed by David Myatt during his National Socialist decades, and appropriated and evolved by the O9A.

The Myattian Vindex mythos was described in two seminal texts, Vindex: Destiny of the West published in 1984, and in The Mythos of Vindex, written c. 1999 with a revised edition issued on 2005. For an overview of the Myattian mythos, qv. Myatt’s Mythos Of Vindex.

As mentioned in the following text: “In respect of the particular esoteric Way of the Order of Nine Angles, our Kindred Tribes and our Niners strike at the very heart of the tyranny of the impersonal State […] It is the mythos of Vindex which possesses the dark sorcery (the magick – exoteric, Internal and Aeonic) necessary to defeat the Magian.”

Classic O9A Texts

Vindex, Honour, and The Tyranny of the Magian

Exoteric Exegesis: The Magian Ethos

Understood esoterically, the Magian ethos and its savants (such as the hubriati) and its servants and foot-soldiers (such as Homo Hubris) are the current enemy of those who, by both practical and esoteric means, seek to create an evolutionary Galactic Imperium imbued with an evolutionary (Promethean, Faustian, Acausal) ethos.

The Magian ethos is a materialistic, enervating, de-evolutionary, set of causal abstractions. These abstractions include – (1) the idea/ideal of the nation-State; (2) the un-aristocratic, vulgar (plebeian) idea and fraud termed “democracy” (where the privileged hubriati rule in the “name of the people”); (3) the abstract idea/ideal of a impersonal (non-honour-based) law administered by so-called national and international “courts of law”; (4) the trickery and wage-slavery that is usury and the modern financial institutions (and the capitalism) based on such trickery and wage-slavery; and, most importantly, (5) mandatory personal taxation on earnings (income tax), and which mandatory income tax plus taxation on goods, property, and commodities (all collected by and enforced by the State/nation) keeps the whole Magian system going.

These causal abstractions now enmesh the world. And they represent a new type of tyranny; a new enslavement of our human species.

These abstractions have replaced living cultures, and their often rural communities, with a vacuous, artificial, nationalism, with abstract ideologies and religions, and with an increasingly artificial way of urban living. [1] These abstractions have replaced the living law of personal honour with the impersonal tyranny of State and international law, so that the individual – especially in the Western world – is now in both theory and in practice powerless before the might of the State (the forces of so-called “law and order”) in their place of residence.

For the State now has the power to arrest and detain anyone (often only “on suspicion” of having transgressed some State-made law) and can use any amount of force it deems necessary to subdue and detain someone. The forces of the State – if they follow the so-called “due process” the State has established and maintains – can smash their way into the home of anyone at anytime, and rifle through and take away whatever they want, as the State has the power to prosecute and imprison (and sometimes execute) anyone it deems has broken some law which it, the State and its flunkies, have manufactured.

Thus, no longer is there a choice – voluntary, by the individual, or allowed by some ruler or potentate – of exile; of beginning a new life elsewhere, free from the clutches of some impersonal authority. There is no longer the choice (unless you are one of the hubriati, of course) of not paying taxation, nor the choice of going to live somewhere where there is no taxation (unless you are one of the hubriati, of course).

In the same way, the powerful Media (newspapers, television, and so on) can make or break the reputation of any person, especially if it is deemed “in the public interest”, which means in accord with the Magian ethos that has come to dominate the West and is now spreading, like the debilitating virus it is, to other lands.

In theory – and often in practice – the individual has no rights which the State and its flunkies cannot take away, just as there is now hardly anywhere now on Earth where an outlaw, or a person, can go to avoid the law enforcement officers and intelligence agencies of the State (or to start a new life), with international travel (and often national travel) being monitored and controlled by passports, Visas, and other mechanisms of State control and State security.

This is sheer tyranny; the emasculation of the individual before the might and power of the State – and before collocations of States, such as the European Union, and the United Nations [2], with their own laws, their own Courts, their own restrictions on what a person can and cannot do. All mandatory taxation, but especially that on income – enforced by imprisonment or the threat of it – is both theft and a means of control.

This is sheer tyranny; the control of the individual from the cradle to the grave, and the de-evolutionary stifling of the real potential of the individual, which potential all esoteric (Occult) Ways understand and appreciate and which all such Ways seek in some manner to develop.

           In our view, our potential – as human beings – lies in four things.

(1) In understanding ourselves – our psyche – and in developing various latent (Occult) faculties, and thus, through a balance between internal (esoteric) and external (exoteric) experiences, learning to fully know and control (discipline) ourselves.

(2) In developing and in employing – by pathei-mathos, by learning from difficult, amoral, and challenging practical experiences – our own personal judgement, and thus becoming and being unique individuals with our own weltanschauung.

(3) In understanding the true Reality (Cosmic, and personal) that lies behind the causal abstractions we human beings have manufactured for millennia, and which constrain and control us, and which we have often used to constrain and control others. Among such causal abstractions are, as mentioned above, all religions, all forms of “politics”, and of course, the idea/ideal of The State, the nation, and of impersonal law.

(4) In leaving our childhood home – this planet – and so, by discovering and exploring new places, by living in new ways, by overcoming challenges, we can become mature, and evolve to become different types of human beings, a new species.

All genuine Occult Ways – to a greater or lessor degree – seek to do the first of these four things. The other three are, currently, esoterically, mostly the preserve of the Occult Way of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A).

Thus has the O9A made the disruption and replacement of the current order, the current Aeon – represented by the tyranny of the Magian State and the Magian ethos – its most fundamental practical priority. Thus is our Dark Sorcery – exoteric and esoteric – directed at everything Magian and everything, and everyone, imbued with and supportive of the Magian ethos.For from this practical and magickal disruption and destruction, our New Aeon – our Dark Galactic Imperium – will emerge.

The Esotericism of Tribes and Vindex

In respect of the particular esoteric Way of the Order of Nine Angles, our Kindred Tribes and our Niners strike at the very heart of the tyranny of the impersonal State.

For instance, understood esoterically, our Kindred Tribes are Acausal Sorcery, as are our traditional nexions with their traditional kindred rites and their Seven-Fold Way, and as are our Niners – our freelance operatives – who embody the authentic personal judgement which the nation-State abhors and whose ways of living are contrary both in theory and in practice to the mechanisms of control of, and to the subservience demanded by, the nation-State.

In addition, our tribes restore the natural balance that depends on personal honour and on our natural, human, tribal – communal – way of living. [See Appendix 1 – Kindred Tribes and The Tyranny of The State.]

Understood esoterically, The Vindex Mythos is also Acausal Sorcery. That is, the original (non-esoteric) form has been and is being used in an esoteric manner to provoke Change in an evolutionary way, creating thus a new darkly-numinous causal form, new archetypes; and which manufactured esoteric form, and which archetypes, may not be perceived or understood as esoteric by many or most of those who are influenced, inspired, and/or changed by the mythos in its non-esoteric (and original) form.

In essence, this mythos is: (1) a new, non-esoteric, manifestation of The Law of Kindred-Honour; (2) the new warriors who, upholding the law of personal honour, establish new tribal ways of living in opposition to the tyranny of the Magian abstraction of the nation-State; and (3) a new and natural balance between the male and the female aspects of human beings, manifest in new archetypes.

This last point – these new archetypes – are important, if currently misunderstood, both exoterically and esoterically. For these new male and female archetypes (to be admired, emulated, and seen as rôle-models) arise from the reality that the new law of personal honour applies equally to both men and women, and that no distinction is made between male, and female, warriors, and between what can be achieved. That is, the only distinction that matters is living by the code of personal honour that forms the very basis of both Niners and of new tribes, and it is this equality of living and aspirations and deeds which will provide the necessary rôle-models – the real-life personal examples – for individuals, with such rôle-models being in stark contrast to those of all modern societies.

Thus, the mythos of Vindex replaces the old law of the old Aeon with our new law of personal honour, and replaces the archetypes of the current Aeon with our new archetypes – from which new archetypes new rôle-models, anti-Magian in their very being, are emerging.

Magian Archetypes and Modern Rôle-models

For centuries, several archetypes of the Magian ethos have affected the peoples of the West. One of these archetypes was, of course, The Nazarene: the Saviour, through, by and with whom, one might find some abstract “peace and salvation.”

From this archetype there developed, for instance, the rôle-model of The Good Nazarene. The essence of The Good Nazarene was doing what the Nazarene Church, or some Nazarene preacher, said was good, and/or what the Nazarene Good-Book said was good.

Another old archetype was and is The Dutiful Tax-Payer. The essence of The Dutiful Tax-Payer is to render to The State/the monarch/the government/the ruler/the potentate what is believed to belong to them – to wit, the right to levy taxes, and the right to rule, to govern subjects.

Now, while these archetypes – and rôle-models deriving from them – still fester within the psyche of the peoples of the West, new rôle-models have emerged, aided and abetted by the Magian ethos.

From the dozen or so new Magian rôle-models, we might select a sample. For instance, one male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Good-Timer. The essence of The Good-Timer is self-expression – they feel they have a “right” to express and indulge themselves, and lack any real control of themselves. For them, the world – and often other people – are a means, a personal source of pleasure, enjoyment, and opportunity. Central to The Good-Timer is “having mates”, using vulgar language, and being “a real man” – and these “real men”, with their mates of course, can be found in most cities and towns of the modern West especially on Friday and Saturday nights where they will be “having a good time”.

Sometimes, the male Good-Timer takes his cue from some “celebrity” hyped by the Media – some sportsman, or some so-called “film star”, for example, who always seems to have a good-time, who can afford a luxurious life-style, and who seems adept at showing how badly behaved they can be, in public and in private.

Another male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Patriotic Citizen. The essence of The Patriotic Citizen is a sense of duty to some Magian abstraction, such as The State, the nation, or to “the law and order” as manufactured and maintained by the State, the nation, or even, now, some supra-national grouping, such as the United Nations. Whatever, The Patriotic Citizen – educated (aka brainwashed) by The State since childhood, and with many past Patriotic Citizen rôle-models to choose from – can be relied on to go fight whatever enemies the State, or their nation, tell them to fight, and relied on to uphold and enforce whatever law their State, or their nation, manufactures. In many ways, this rôle-model evolved out of the earlier archetype of The Dutiful Tax-Payer.

Another male rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Celebrity Rebel. The essence of The Celebrity Rebel is the belief that one is being rebellious, and “standing out from the crowd”, and doing something which is outré and (they believe) possibly forbidden and dangerous.

Often, the wannabe male Celebrity Rebel takes his cue from some fictional character, portrayed in some film for example, or written about in some book; sometimes, even from some real person, hyped and possibly romanticised by the Media, whose deeds have not in any serious way threatened the status quo and whose ideas do not and will not in any serious way threaten the status quo. Classic examples of The Celebrity Rebel are, of course, Aleister Crowley – hilariously dubbed the wickedest man in the world for simply indulging himself and his fantasies, and now regarded as an influential icon of “rebellion” – and Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey), the archetypal Magian charlatan and plagiarist, now hilariously regarded as the founder of some sort of modern rebellious philosophy.

One female rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris is the female equivalent of the male The Good-Timer. For the female Good-Timer, appearance and being fashionable and accepted by one’s peers are important, although they follow their male Good-Timers by needing to “have mates”, by using vulgar language, and by being found in most cities and towns of the modern West, especially on Friday and Saturday nights where they will be “having a good time”.

Another female rôle-model hyped and propagated by the Magian, by the Media, and now embedded in the psyche of Homo Hubris, is The Lawful Feminist. The essence of The Lawful Feminist is a desire for some abstract “equality” – to have their share of the pie given to them by the Magian System, by The State.

Notice how all these and similar rôle-models are no real, practical, threat to the Magian status quo, to Magian abstractions.

The good-timers, for instance, can have their parties, their intoxications, their sexual trysts, their raucous music, their means of entertainment and of diversion – from fast sporty cars to luxury gadget goods to stag parties to holidays abroad where they can pretend and delude themselves that they are “exploring” and/or “discovering themselves”. But they never threaten the status quo, and although some of them might end up in jail, most often they become, in their middle and later years, either part of The System, and thus tax-paying citizens, their youthful rebellion over, or they subside on welfare or survive by means of petty crime and which petty crime, while a minor annoyance to The System and its citizens, is not a threat to the tyrannical existence of The State, for The State has its Patriotic Citizens to aid and save it.

Similarly, the wannabe Celebrity Rebels can and do rebel – but only a little (like getting high on weed), but always stop short of not paying their taxes, stop short of taking up arms against The State, and are almost always being reminded (by their peer Celebrity Rebels) to “obey the law of the land” (with the occasional exception made where that exception does not threaten The State, such as personally indulging in intoxicants).

The Lawful Feminists, for example, seldom if ever really want revolution to destroy and replace The State. Instead, they desire change through either political, social, and legal, reform, or through advocacy of some form of socialist/communist State, thus swapping one Magian causal abstraction (the capitalist/democratic State) for another Magian causal abstraction (the Marxist/socialist utopian State). All the many variants of The Lawful Feminist rôle-model, almost without exception, regard the abstract impersonal law of the modern State as necessary and important, and indeed as a “guarantor of their rights”.

Vindexian Rôle-models

Contrast these sample Magian rôle-models with some of our new rôle-models.

We have The Deadly Outlaw. The essence of The Deadly Outlaw is that they are real outlaws – outside the laws of The State, which they reject. Instead, they live by their own laws, based on the law of personal honour, and which law means that they would prefer to die fighting rather than surrender to the forces of The State, for such a surrender to such people who obey such abstract impersonal dishonourable laws, would be a personal humiliation and an affront to their honour and their dignity as outlaws.

We have The Tribal Warrior. The essence of The Tribal Warrior is that they belong to a tribe, a close-knit clan, all or most of whom they know personally, and trust, and many of whom they will be related to. This tribe is their family; their extended family to whom they are bound by ties of honour, blood, duty, and loyalty. This tribe and their honour – their own personal honour and the honour of their tribe – come before anything and everything else, and especially before their own life. Thus, they reject The State, the nation – all modern abstractions – in favour of a new tribal living, based on honour. They also reject usury, mandatory taxation, and the abstraction which is money, preferring where practical the ancient, natural, way of barter.

We have The Tribal Chief. The essence of The Tribal Chief is that The Chief (who can be either male or female) guides their tribe by virtue of their experience, knowledge, insight, honour, and arête – that is, by their excellence of honourable personal character. Their first loyalty is to their tribe – to its honour, its prosperity, its freedom – and not to themselves.

Finally, we have the archetypes of Vindex, and The Warriors of Vindex. Vindex is The Avenger – the practical, fighting, warrior (male, or female) who, with the help of warrior tribes, takes on and defeats the forces of The Magian, represented as these forces are now by powerful impersonal States such as America where the Magian ethos thrives and controls.

The Warriors of Vindex are those tribes, and those Deadly Outlaws, who come together under the charismatic leadership of Vindex, to write their names, and that of their tribes, into the history of our human species, and who represent, par excellence, the triumph of aristocratic personal honour over the lifeless, impersonal tyrannical abstractions of the Magians, over the dishonour of the Hubriati, and over the plebeian, self-indulgent, nature of Homo Hubris.


It should be understood that it is the mythos of Vindex which is or which can be the practical genesis of The Galactic Imperium, as it is the mythos of Vindex which possesses the dark sorcery (the magick – exoteric, Internal and Aeonic) necessary to defeat the Magian and that untermensch species, Homo Hubris (aka mundane mundanes), who are not only the product of the Magian ethos but who keep the Magian ethos alive and their Magian masters in power, to the detriment of our evolution.

For, in essence, the mythos of Vindex replaces the archetypes of the current Aeon with our new archetypes, and from which new archetypes new rôle-models, anti-Magian in their very being, are emerging and will continue to emerge.

A Note on Some Terms

Causal Abstractions

Abstractions (aka causal abstractions) are manifestations of the primary (causal) nature of mundanes, and are manufactured by mundanes in their mundane attempt to understand the world, themselves, and the causal Universe. Exoterically, abstractions re-present the mundane simplicity of causal linearality – of causal reductionism, of a simple cause-and-effect, of a limited causal thinking.

All abstractions are devoid of Dark-Empathy and the perspective of acausality, and thus are redolent of, or directly manifest, materialism and the Untermensch ethos derived from such materialism.

Understood exoterically, an abstraction is the manufacture, and use of, some idea, ideal, “image” or category, and thus some generalization, and/or some assignment of an individual or individuals to some group or category. The positing of some “perfect” or “ideal” form, category, or thing, is part of abstraction.

Abstractions hide the true nature of Reality – which is both causal and acausal, and which true nature can be apprehended and understood by means of The Dark Arts, and thus by following the Occult way from Initiate, to Adept, and beyond. According to the O9A, the so-called Occult Arts – and especially the so-called Satanism – of others are manifestations of causal abstractions, lacking as they do the learning of the skills of Dark-Empathy, Acausal-Thinking, and Acausal Sorcery, and thus lacking as they do the ability to develope our latent human faculties and our latent acausal character.


The Way of the Drecc and the Niner are the Ways of living a practical exeatic, adversarial, life with the Niner working alone or with a trusted partner, and with the Drecc working in the company of their own family-kindred and/or with a gang or tribe which they either form or join.

Homo Hubris

A type of mundane, and a new sub-species of the genus, Homo, which new sub-species has evolved out of the industrial revolution and the imposition of both capitalism and what is called democracy. This new rapacious mostly urban dwelling denizen – this creation of the modern West – is the foot-soldier of the Magian, and is distinguished by a personal arrogance, by a lack of manners, and by that lack of respect for anything other than strength/power and/or their own gratification. And it was to satiate and satisfy and to use and control Homo

Hubris that the Magian and their acolytes (such as the Hubriati) manufactured the vacuous, profane, vulgar mass entertainment industry – and mass “culture” – of the modern West, just as it is Magian Occultism, the Magian- controlled Media, and the “spin”, the propaganda, of politicians who have been assessed and accepted by the Magian cabal, which keeps Homo Hubris almost totally unaware, and uncaring, of the reality of the modern world and of their potential as human beings.


The hubriati are that class of individuals, in the West, who have been and who are subsumed by the Magian ethos and the delusion of abstractions, and who occupy positions of influence and/or of power. Hubriati include politicians, Media magnates and their savants, military commanders, government officials, industrialists, bankers, many academics and teachers, and so on. The oligarchy (elected and unelected) that forms the controllers of Western governments are almost excursively hubriati.

Among the abstractions which delude hubriati are the State, the nation, abstract law, and the pretence that is called “democracy”.


The term Magian is used to refer to the hybrid ethos of Yahoud and of Western hubriati, and also refers to those individuals who are Magian by either breeding or nature.

The Magian ethos expresses the fundamental materialistic belief, the idea, of Homo Hubris, Yahoud, and the Hubriati, that the individual self (and thus self identity) is the most important, the most fundamental, thing, and that the individual – either alone or collectively (and especially in the form of a nation/State) – can master and control everything (including themselves), if they have the right techniques, the right tools, the right method, the right ideas, the money, the power, the influence, the words. That human beings have nothing to fear, because they are or can be in control.

Yet the Magian ethos is something other than simply something manufactured by some other people, such as Zionists, and which therefore expresses the ethos, the Zeitgeist, of that people. That is, this Magian ethos is theirs, but crucially also now “ours”; an alchemical mixture of ideas, abstractions, and mythos, deriving from both “us” and “them”. Thus, while currently the main beneficiaries of this Magian ethos are the Magians themselves (and especially their new State entity and its satellite entity, Amerika) its origin, its existence, and its continuing vigour and power are now insolubly tied up with the peoples of the West.

Magians (as a breed) are a specific type of human being – they are the natural exploiters of others, possessed of an instinctive type of human cunning and an avaricious personal nature. Over the past millennia they have developed a talent for manipulating other human beings, especially Western mundanes, by means of abstractions – such as usury and “freedom” and marxian/capitalist “social engineering/planning” – and by hoaxes/illusions, such as that of “democracy”. The easily manipulated nature of Western mundanes, and the Magian talent for such things as usury and litigation/spiel, their ability to cunningly manipulate, and their underlying charlatanesque (and almost always cowardly nature), have given them wealth, power and influence.

As such, Magians are – currently – our natural and indeed our necessary mortal enemies, not simply because of their influence and control over mundanes (something we ourselves seek to do to achieve some Aeonic aims) but essentially because Magian influence and control is de-evolutionary in the worst possible sense (breeding as it has and does Homo Hubris), whereas our influence and guidance is and would evolutionary in the best possible sense; a means to liberate individuals, practically – from the tyranny of causal abstractions – and psychically, to extend their consciousness by, for example, awareness of the acausal and through the darkly-numinous goal of leaving this planet, our childhood home.


Exoterically, mundanes are defined as those who are not of our acausal kind – that is, as those who do not live by The Law of Kindred-Honour (qv). Esoterically, mundane-ness is defined as being under the influence of, or being in thrall to, or being addicted to, and/or believing in, and/or using as a means of understanding, causal abstractions (qv).


Vindex is the name given to the person (male of female) who, by practical deeds, brings-into-being a new way of life and who confronts, and who defeats, through force of arms, those forces which represent the dishonour and the impersonal tyranny so manifest in the modern world, especially in what it is convenient to call “the West”.

The main opponent of Vindex – both on the practical level and in terms of ethos – is the Magian. The main allies of the Magian have been the hubriati of the West – that is, the vulgar Western oligarchy which had originally bred and maintained the White Hordes of Homo Hubris as toiling-workers, salary-slaves and foot-soldiers for their materialistic system of industrialism, capitalism, colonialism and vacuous (un-numinous, abstract) States, and which hubriati, in the early part of the twentieth-century (CE, or Era Vulgaris), came to enthusiastically adopt and evolve the Magian ethos, until the Magian ethos has, since the ending of The First Zionist War, come to represent the modern West, with the White Hordes of Homo Hubris now effectively the toiling-workers, salary-slaves and foot-soldiers for the Magian, and whose taxes, work and sacrifices serve to keep the whole rapacious Magian system alive.

The essence of the new way of life that Vindex heralds and implements (the Vindex ethos) is: (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 honour in place of the abstract laws made by governments.

Appendix 1

Kindred Tribes and The Tyranny of The State

Our wyrd – our true nature, as human beings capable of consciously participating in our own evolution and that of the Cosmos – is most obviously manifest, in a practical way, through our Vindexian warrior tribes and our Law of Kindred Honour. Furthermore, if we know, and if we develope, our wyrd, we become, we are, a particular new type (a new breed) of human being – quite distinct from the mundanes. In essence, we become Dark Warriors, living and if necessary dying by the Law of Kindred Honour.

Our Kindred Tribes are a practical, a darkly-numinous, evolution of that natural tribal instinct that lives within us and which has lived within us, and which tribal instinct has made possible (hitherto mostly unconsciously) our evolution, as human beings. That is, the Kindred Tribes of the O9A are a means whereby we can access and increase our own acausal energy, as individuals, and participate in our own evolution, and that of the Cosmos. To do this – to know and to live our wyrd – is to live in a symbiotic relationship with others of our new kind; to balance our unique individuality with our necessary and natural and numinous (that is, honourable) co-operation with others of our kind. For it is such honourable (numinous) co-operation with others of our own kind (within our own tribal family) which presences and which allows our own individual wyrd to be evolved.

In direct opposition to our wyrd is the modern tyranny of The State, which is un-numinous and de-evolutionary in nature, purpose and intent. For the State takes away our natural right of personal honour, and that natural and evolutionary way of living which is tribal, and replaces honour by impersonal,lifeless, abstract “law”, and replaces tribes by the impersonal, lifeless, abstract, State and nation, which are – despite the illusion and pretence of democracy by some such States – are all run by an oligarchy, for the benefit of that wealthy and privileged oligarchy.

In place of the natural and personal knowing – the acausal-knowing – of our tribal (extended, kindred) family, there is the impersonal causal lifeless “knowing” of our place as some mechanistic “citizen” of the State or nation. In place of the natural loyalty to, and the care of and from, our own tribal family – based on a personal, numinous, knowing and loyalty – there is the division of us into isolated, un-numinous and de-evolutionary single family units, dependant on usury, and where our given purpose is to toil for the State, on behalf of The State, or for ourselves and our single isolated family unit, and to which State we have to pay, for all of our working lives, mandatory taxes, thus making us wage or salary slaves, almost always burdened by debt.

In place of our natural, healthy, evolutionary warrior way of life – based on a tribal way of living and the law of kindred honour – the State denudes us of numinous meaning, of wyrd, and provides us only with de-evolutionary aims and goals. In place of the glory of a Galactic Imperium, and the promise of a warrior-won acausal existence, the tyranny of The State provides us with only causal illusions and abstractions and meaningless “rewards”, so that we remain tame, domesticated, animals, paying our taxes, and subservient to their dishonourable enforcers, the bullies they call the forces of their “law and order.”

Thus, we by our very nature, by our wyrd, are violently, implacably, and in all practical ways, opposed to the State and its de-evolutionary self-serving tyranny.


Appendix II

Code Of Kindred Honour

Those who are not our kindred brothers or sisters are mundanes. Those who are our brothers and sisters live by – and are prepared to die by – our unique code of honour.

Our Kindred-Honour means we are fiercely loyal to only our own O9A kind. Our Kindred-Honour means we are wary of, and do not trust – and often despise – all those who are not like us, especially mundanes.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to be ready, willing, and able to defend ourselves, in any situation, and to be prepared to use lethal force to so defend ourselves.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to be loyal to, and to defend, our own kind: to do our duty, even unto death, to those of our brothers and sisters to whom we have sworn a personal oath of loyalty. Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to seek revenge, if necessary unto death, against anyone who acts dishonourably toward us, or who acts dishonourably toward those to whom we have sworn a personal oath of loyalty.

Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to never willingly submit to any mundane; to die fighting rather than surrender to them; to die rather (if necessary by our own hand) than allow ourselves to be dishonourably humiliated by them.

Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to never trust any oath or any pledge of loyalty given, or any promise made, by any mundane, and to be wary and suspicious of them at all times.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to settle our serious disputes, among ourselves, by either trial by combat, or by a duel involving deadly weapons; and to challenge to a duel anyone – mundane, or one of our own kind – who impugns our kindred honour or who makes mundane accusations against us.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to settle our non-serious disputes, among ourselves, by having a man or woman from among us (a brother or sister who is highly esteemed because of their honourable deeds), arbitrate and decide the matter for us, and to accept without question, and to abide by, their decision, because of the respect we have accorded them as arbitrator.Our duty – as kindred individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to always keep our word to our own kind, once we have given our word on our kindred honour, for to break one’s word among our own kind is a cowardly, a mundane, act.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to act with kindred honour in all our dealings with our own kindred kind. Our obligation – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – is to marry only those from our own kind, who thus, like us, live by our Code and are prepared to die to save their Kindred-Honour and that of their brothers and sisters.

Our duty – as individuals who live by the Code of Kindred-Honour – means that an oath of kindred loyalty or allegiance, once sworn by a man or woman of kindred honour (“I swear on my Kindred-Honour that I shall…”) can only be ended either: (i) by the man or woman of kindred honour formally asking the person to whom the oath was sworn to release them from that oath, and that person agreeing so to release them; or (ii) by the death of the person to whom the oath was sworn. Anything else is unworthy of us, and the act of a mundane.

Traditional And Modern: The Two Types Of Satanism

Order Of Nine Angles


The Two Types Of Satanism

There are basically two types of Satanism: (i) the ‘modern American’ type manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey – better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey – and (ii) the ‘traditional Satanism’ as manifest in the Occult philosophy and the praxis of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) as developed and expounded by the pseudonymous “Anton Long” which is widely believed to be a pseudonym used by the neo-nazi extremist, and “theoretician of terror” {1}, David Myatt. {2}{3}

The Satanism Of Levey

The modern Satanism of Levey is based on the premise that Satan is a symbol of the carnal, the selfish, the egoistic, nature of human beings, with satanism understood as manifesting the raison d’êtres of ‘might is right’, of ‘lex talionis’, and of the individualistic ideas expressed in Ayn Rand’s Objectivism {4}.

This type of Satanism promotes “the total satisfaction of the ego” {5} and obeying the law of the land {6}.

The Satanism Of Anton Long

The traditional Satanism of Anton Long is based on the scholarly premise that – as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan {7} – (i) hasatan – the satan – refers (in the Septuagint) to the chief adversary (of the so-called ‘chosen ones’) and to the chief schemer against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah, and (ii) “a satan” historically (in the Septuagint) refers to someone who is an adversary of and who thus is pejoratively regarded (by those so opposed) as scheming, as plotting against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah.

Thus, for the O9A, a satanist is someone who is heretically opposed to those who believe they are the chosen people of God/Jehovah, with O9A satanism understood as an antinomian – amoral, heretical – means to such exeatic personal experiences as shape and evolve an individual’s character and understanding. {8}{9}.

The contrast between the Satanism manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey and the Satanism developed and expounded by Anton Long is perhaps best illustrated by comparing their respective lives and their respective writings, for one would expect their respective types of Satanism to be reflected in their own lives and in their writings.

A Contrast Of Lives

The life of Howard Stanton Levey consisted of conducting carnivalesque – and sometimes fetishistic – ‘satanic’ rituals while dressed like Mephistopheles in some amateur production of Marlowe’s Faust; selling membership in his showmanry Church of Satan while telling members to “obey the law”; pontificating – and giving lectures – about his type of satanism; giving interviews to journalists; hosting parties for hedonists and Hollywood-types, and boasting about his past.

Levey, for instance, boasted that as a seventeen year old he worked in the Beatty circus and handled lions and tigers, although circus records from that time showed that no one named Levey or LaVey worked for them. He boasted that he had worked as a photographer for the San Francisco police department although they had no record of anyone called Levey or LaVey working for them.

Levey boasted that he had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, and yet again there is no documentary evidence to substantiate his claim. He boasted that he worked in a burlesque theatre called Mayan and met Marilyn Monroe there whom he claimed worked as a striptease artiste although the owner of the theatre at the time – Paul Valentine – denied it was a burlesque theatre, stated Levey never worked there, with there also being no documentary evidence that Monroe worked there as a striptease artiste.

Levey boasted that he enrolled on a criminology course at the City College in San Francisco although the college had no record of his enrolment under his real name, Levey, or under the La Vey alias he often used.

Thus the life of Howard Stanton Levey does indeed exemplify his type of Satanism: hedonistic, egoistic, boastful, materialistic, and showmanry. In common parlance: all mouth and trousers.

            In contrast to Levey, “Anton Long” – aka David Myatt – is a “principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution” {10}, was “the mentor” who drove someone to kill three people {11}, who before and after 9/11 publicly praised bin Laden and al Qaeda, called the 9/11 attacks ‘acts of heroism’ and urged the killing of Jews {12}, who preached “race war and terrorism” {13}, who wrote “a detailed step-by-step guide for terrorist insurrection with advice on assassination targets, rationale for bombing and sabotage campaigns, and rules of engagement” {14}, who travelled and spoke in several Arab countries about Jihad {15}, who was a bodyguard of England’s principle neo-nazi activist, Colin Jordan {16}, who took over the leadership of the violent neo-nazi group Combat 18 when its previous leader was jailed for murder {17}, who is an “example of the axis between right-wing extremists and Islamists” {17}, who is a Martial Arts expert {18}, who was imprisoned twice for violent offences in connection with his neo-nazi activism {17}, and who in 1998 was arrested for conspiracy to murder and for other offences {14}{19}.

The life of Myatt does indeed exemplify O9A Satanism: actually or potentially harmful, destructive, pernicious, baleful, misleading, deadly; bad in moral character; malevolent, offensive, sly; and hard and difficult. In common parlance: extremist, violent, and terrorist.

A Contrast Of Writings

The sources used by Howard Levey – evident in his much-vaunted ‘satanic bible’ and in his letters – are populist interpretations of the likes of Nietzsche and Ayn Rand, populist books about psychology, with the anonymous polemic titled Might Is Right much plagiarized. Since Levey could not read Ancient Greek, Latin, and Arabic, when writing about Satan, Iblis (Shaitan) and the medieval “grimoire” tradition of magic(k) that derived from such earlier Arabic works as Ghayat al-Ḥakim and also from some medieval Latin esoteric texts – such as those of Marsilio Ficino – Levey had no knowledge of such primary sources and had to rely on populist books and the interpretations and interpolations of others. Thus in his understanding of the Biblical Satan he had to rely on translations, unable as he was to read the κοινή Greek of the Septuagint.

Such sources and populist interpretations are also much in evidence in texts written by Aquino, who according to his own account {20} aided and contributed to the production of Levey’s ‘satanic bible’ and his ‘satanic rituals’ books. Like Levey, Aquino could not read Ancient Greek, Latin, and Arabic, and also used populist summaries of philosophies and weltanschauungen, ancient and modern. Thus, in his The Crystal Tablet of Set, populist summaries of philosophies and weltanschauungen, ancient and modern, precede a quite minimalist and vague presentation of ‘satanist’ and/or of Temple of Set ideas. Thus, a chapter on ‘ethics’ consists of 12 pages of populist summaries of the likes of Plato, Hegel, Marx, et al, followed by a meagre few paragraphs concerning good and evil in an occult context, and which paragraphs merely present rather cliched personal opinions, such as that “there is thus no easy answer to the question of whether a given magical act is good or evil” and that “it is up to the magician to determine what judgments – by which judges – will be important”. As befits such pseudo-intellectualism, the references in such texts are often to populist works (such as The Social Contract by Robert Ardrey) just as quotations from such people as Plato are invariably in translations, not by Aquino, but by someone else.

Thus the writings of Howard Stanton Levey – and those of Aquino, his helper – do indeed exemplify the type of Satanism found in The Church Of Satan: populist, plagiaristic, reliant on the interpretations and interpolations of others, and unoriginal. In common parlance: plebeian, mundane.

            In complete contrast, Myatt has “fluency in the classical languages (Greek and Latin), as well as Arabic and possibly Persian, [and is] possessed of a gifted intellect and apparently a polymath,” {21} and thus can read primary esoteric, classical, and alchemical sources, and the Greek texts of the Septuagint (the Old Testament) and the New Testament, in their original language. Thus when “Anton Long” writes in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan about Satan he does so based on a scholarly knowledge of the Greek text of the Old Testament.

In addition, when Myatt – in contrast to both Levey and Aquino – writes of ethics and about ‘good and evil’ in, for example, chapter IV – Questions of Good, Evil, Honour, and God – of his 2013 book Religion, Empathy, and Pathei-Mathos, he provides passages in Hebrew, Greek, and Arabic, along with his own translations. Similarly, when discussing ethics in his recent book Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos, Myatt provides the relevant Greek texts (such as from the Gospel of John) and his own translations.

Thus the O9A writings of Anton Long do indeed exemplify O9A Satanism: intellectually and historically based {22}, scholarly, original. In common parlance: a cut above the rest.


The contrast between the life and writings of Howard Levey and Anton Long could not be more stark.

Levey was a showman, a dilettante, a plagiarist, a charlatan, and a mundane.

Anton Long, however, was a practical – a hands-on – extremist and Faustian man as well as an intellectual, a scholar, a martial arts expert {18}, “emblematic of the modern syncretism of radical ideologies” {23}, and well-described as an “extremely violent, intelligent, dark, and complex individual” {24} who undertook “a global odyssey which took him on extended stays in the Middle East and East Asia, accompanied by studies of religions ranging from Christianity to Islam in the Western tradition and Taoism and Buddhism in the Eastern path. In the course of this Siddhartha-like search for truth, Myatt sampled the life of the monastery in both its Christian and Buddhist forms.” {25}.

Which global odyssey formed only part of his fifty year quest – his personal hermetic anados (ἄνοδος) {26} – along the Seven Fold (Sinisterly-Numinous) Way of the O9A culminating in his discovery of Lapis Philosophicus {27} and thence the living of the life of a reclusive Mage, and thus who is a modern example of the ancient Rounwytha tradition, whose

            “perceiveration is of the nameless, wordless, unity beyond our mortal, abstract, ideations of ‘sinister’ and ‘numinous’, of Left Hand Path and Right Hand Path, and also – and importantly – of ‘time’. For it is our ideation of ‘time’ – with its assumption of a possible temporal progression, via various temporary causal forms, toward something ‘better’ or more ‘advanced’ or more ‘perfect’ (in personal or supra-personal terms) – that underlies the magian/patriarchal/masculous approach that has dominated, and still dominates, Western occultism and esotericism in general, fundamental to which is a hubriatic egoism: the illusion that is the individual will.” {28}

Such is the modern heresy of the O9A which esoterically and exoterically contradicts the modern Satanism of Levey based as the Satanism of Levey is on the premise that Satan is a symbol for plebeians, and thus of the carnal, the selfish, the egoistic, the mundane, nature of human beings.

In stark contrast, the Satanism of the O9A is of a Faustian, a Promethean, and life-long endeavour to defy all ideations, all causal forms, and reach out to personally and in practical ways experience and learn from both the ‘sinister’ and the ‘numinous’ and to thus discover Lapis Philosophicus.

A Tough Woman



The news that Nicky Spinks, a 51-year-old lady farmer, was the first person to run the Ramsay Round, a Scottish Highland fell route near Fort William, twice – a distance of 116 miles, and in just under 56 hours, a new world record – is most welcome news {1}. For it proves yet again that misogynists everywhere – be they Nazarene, Islamic, Judaic, or simply atheist or macho vulgarians – are dinosaurs, relicts of a bygone de-evolutionary age, desperate as those men are to cling onto the patriarchal ethos of the past four millennia.

Perhaps some vocal supporter of The Vulgarian In Chief – he who currently resides in The White House – can take up the challenge and run the Ramsay Round twice in less than 56 hours? Even so, has the misogynist draft-dodger, The Vulgarian In Chief, any such tough physical deeds to his name? No, of course not. He is all mouth and trousers; a spoilt rich brat who paid a doctor to provide him with a medical certificate exempting him from being drafted as a US soldier during the Vietnam war. {2}

Nicky Spinks celebrated her triumph – British farmer that she is – by eating two “full English” breakfasts. Which no doubt will not endear her to the self-obsessed pretentious “fitness” gurus of the modern politically-correct West.

As fell-runners ourselves, in the isles of Britain, we know how tough such fell-racing is. For us, her spirit and toughness harkens back to our ancient pagan ancestors when fierce, tough, woman warriors fought the male Roman legions who had invaded Britain.

The Anti-Patriarchal O9A

Order Of Nine Angles


On The Anti-Patriarchal O9A Ethos

I read that one of things that differentiates the O9A from other Left Hand Path occultists and from other Satanists is its anti-patriarchal ethos. Could you expand upon this?

As noted in the O9A text Distinguishing The O9A, {1} distributed in 2016:

                  “One of the most outward practical signs of the O9A logos is the fact that the O9A has and always has had Sapphic nexions and – according to an academic source {2} – “has more female supporters than either the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set [and] more women with children.”
                 For the [O9A] code of kindred honour embodies respect for women and gender equality and – as is evident from basic texts such as Naos – the O9A also embodies equality in regard to the sexual preference of individuals. Furthermore, the O9A has always emphasized that “only through the female are the forces represented by the three alchemical substances and their nine combinations capable of being released in a physical way.” {3}
                 That is, it is women who are the key to creating, opening – and keeping open – nexions to the acausal. Thus, in the O9A, women are of fundamental importance, equal partners, and indeed essential to the O9A, with the O9A ethos contrary to and opposed to the misogyny still so rife in the Western world, as elsewhere.

Terran men in their majority seem to have a genetic predisposition to be arrogant, misogynist, competitive, and desirous of war and conflict. Until, that is, some are touched – perhaps transformed – via pathei-mathos: by grief, by personal suffering, by such personal loss of loved ones or comrades as – even if for only moments – place their own mortal lives into a supra-personal, sometimes even into an Aeonic, perspective.

Yet each new generation of terran men begins anew. Self-assured, arrogant, misogynist, competitive, and desirous of war and conflict, as they so often in their majority are. To them, this new generation, the pathei-mathos – such stories – of their forefathers seem unreal; voices of a past generation to be perhaps condescendingly listened to but seldom if ever appreciated and almost always never to become a source of learning.

Thus, given the dominant patriarchal ethos of past eras and of the current era, does the cycle of a lack of conscious, willed, evolution continue, and repeat itself, generation following terran generation. Which is where – for those who know – certain esoteric traditions come into play. For such traditions preserve, hand on to each new generation, a means, a praxis, whereby that learning of previous generations has been distilled into a transformative, an alchemical, essence so enabling us, both men and women, as a sentient species to consciously evolve. One such means of esoteric transformation is the Seven Fold Way (7FW) of the Order of Nine Angles. For the 7FW is basically a series of consciously undertaken practical experiences. Experiences which can – which should – provoke the person into learning about and being honest with themselves, with such experiences and such learning enabling the person to develop their own weltanschauung and thus be independent of previous dogma esoteric or otherwise.

In other words, the 7FW evolves the individual because they have an understanding which transcends the human made dialectic of opposites – the abstractions, forms, categories, terms, the naming – which has guided the thinking and often the way of life of most humans for thousands of years. This understanding goes beyond words and is highly personal; germane to the individual.

Of pathei mathos in general, that is, outside of an Occult context, [David] Myatt writes in one of his metaphysical tracts,

                  “For we human beings, pathei-mathos possesses a numinous, a living, authority; [for] the wisdom, the understanding, that arises from one’s own personal experience, from formative experiences that involve some hardship, some grief, some personal suffering, is often or could be more valuable to us (more alive, more meaningful) than any doctrine, than any religious faith, than any words one might hear from someone else or read in some book.” {4}

In esoteric – occult – terms the foundations of the 7FW (and thus of the Order of Nine Angles) are (i) pathei mathos consciously produced through an individual undertaking particular tasks and rôles both esoteric and exoteric, and (ii) the knowledge that our evolution as a species is an individual, a personal, an Aeonic, one and does not and cannot be done by ‘secret occult societies’ of whatever kind, cannot be done through external forms or forces such as politics or religion or by social doctrines or laws being applied to a society or to societies. That is, it is individuals and their pathei mathos who and which are evolutionary, the basis – the quintessence – of the 7FW and of the Order of Nine Angles.

Sorcery and the Esoteric Nature of The Acausal

The basis of sorcery is some-thing which is alive: to wit, we who practice the dark art of sorcery. That is, correctly – esoterically – understood sorcery is a living alchemy. For sorcery is a combination of various aspects, the most necessary and important of which are living beings – for instance, the sorcerer, and the object of sorcery, which object is almost always another living being, human or otherwise. Or, expressed more precisely (esoterically) sorcery is – as all Dark Arts are – a means whereby we shed our causal, illusive, form (of separateness) and become of the essence of Life and so can affect other Life, sometimes by becoming or imitating (being a mimesis of or for) other Life for a specific period of causal Time because “we” are the matrix of connexions that is Life in the causal.

There is thus the use of energies which are not-causal, since such energies depend on (or derive from) a living being or some living beings, and since what-lives, a living being, cannot be explained by causality (linear causal reductionism) or any representation based on such causality, mathematical or otherwise (such as some current theory in Physics).

The living alchemy that is genuine sorcery explains why – in the real world we human beings all inhabit (as distinct from our dreams, and the movies) – no sorcerer, however advanced or knowledgeable they may be, can by some “magick” or spell or whatever bring a rock to life and so transform it into some living entity. What a sorcerer can do, in our real world, is affect and so change other living beings (to various degrees), be such living beings human, non-human but of our physical realm (such as animals), or esoteric (of the realm of the psyche, and which psyche includes such non-causal living entities as archetypes). [1]

What an advanced practitioner of sorcery can do or may be able to do is affect aspects of larger living entities, such as the living entity that is Nature [2] – and thus may be able, for example, to bring into being, over a natural period of earthly causal Time (that is, not instantaneously), a storm [3].

Similarly, and in respect of divination, what a genuine sorcerer does is intuit (become in sympathy with usually via dark-empathy) the Destiny (and possibly the Wyrd) of an individual. That is, in exoteric-speak they betake themselves out from the causal realm (from causal Time) and so see (and think) acausally – and often some causal form (such as Tarot images) are used in order to facilitate this esoteric type of seeing and knowing.

The living alchemy that is genuine sorcery also explains how such things as an esoteric curse work: that is, not initially by a direct, linear, causality. Thus, the living energy of a human being – that which animates them, makes them alive, and keeps them healthy and alive, is accessed and thence affected or changed by the sorcerer in some particular manner, or some nexion within the psyche of that individual is opened to allow the ingress of other, disruptive (and possible non-causal) living entities. With the effect that, over a certain period of causal Time, that individual is afflicted with misfortune and possibly illness or in some cases even death. Why over a certain period of causal Time? Because the affected living entity lives (has existence in) the causal continuum which constrains their being (constrains the acausal energy that animates them and keeps them alive).

In ONA-speak, a sorcerer is or becomes a particular type of nexion capable of accessing and presencing acausal energies.

[1] It should be remembered that the ONA uses terms such as psyche and archetype in a particular esoteric way. See, for example, A Glossary of Order of Nine Angles Terms (Version ≥ 3.07)

[2] Technically, and esoterically, Nature is defined as both a type of supra-personal being, and that innate, creative, force (that is, ψυχή) which animates physical matter and makes it living, here on this planet we call Earth.

[3] A rudimentary example of this is given in Naos.

Explaining The Acausal

Order Of Nine Angles


Editorial Note: This brief but informative essay provides an overview of “the theory of the acausal” as used by the Order of Nine Angles and thus corrects many of the errors about “the acausal” made by non-O9A folk over the past four decades.


Classic O9A Texts

Explaining The Acausal


A Metaphysical Theory

The theory of the acausal that is used by the Order of Nine Angles, and which forms one of the foundations of the O9A’s esoteric philosophy as well as The Star Game, was developed by David Myatt around 1972, and concerns metaphysics. That is, it is not – as some have assumed – a scientific theory proposed by Myatt in order to either explain some observed Phainómenon or extend the theoretical frontiers of physics, but rather belongs to that “branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things or reality, including questions about being, substance, time and space, causation, change, and identity.”

In terms of ontology, Myatt suggests that the difference between living things and ordinary matter can be explained by postulating a bifurcation of being – causal and acausal – with living things, in contrast to ordinary matter, possessing both causal and acausal being. In terms of epistemology, Myatt suggests that this acausal being – that is, the nature (or physis, the “identity”) of living beings, including ourselves – can be discovered (known) via developing our faculty of empathy, and that this “acausal knowing” is different from but complementary to the “causal knowing” discovered (known) by observing, in a scientific manner, Phainómenon and then, using denotatum and theoretical models (including mathematical ones), explaining such Phainómenon.

Crucially, Myatt also posits a fundamental difference between “acausal knowing” and “causal knowing” in that acausal knowing is by its nature personal (“subjective”, intuitive) – and cannot be abstracted out from the immediate moment of the personal knowing – while causal knowing is what we now describe by the term scientific (“objective”, observational, impersonal) and, in contrast to acausal knowing, relies on denotatum, abstractions, and theories. Thus, according to Myatt, to “know” – to understand – the physis of living beings, including our own physis as a human being, both acausal and causal knowing are needed.

However, Myatt has also speculated about what the nature of acausal being might be and about “the nature and extent and cause of the acausal connexions between living beings that acausal-knowing reveals” {1}. One of his speculations – which he admits might be fallacious – is “conceptualizing the acausal as a n-dimensional acausal continuum (where n is > 3 but ≤ ∞) of acausal Space and acausal Time, in contrast to the causal geometrical Space and linear causal Time of the causal and 4-dimensional continuum of Phainómenon familiar to us through sciences such as physics, chemistry, and astronomy.”

Acausality And The O9A

The Order of Nine Angles uses Myatt’s “acausal realm” to not only explain “the supernatural”, and sorcery {2}, but also to provide a raison d’etre for the occult, hermetic, quest for gnosis. Thus, and for instance, O9A suppositions include: (i) that archetypes re-present (are types of) “acausal energy” and that our “consciousness” and unconscious are a nexus between the causal and the acausal, a nexus symbolized by The Star Game {3} and the septenary Tree of Wyrd; and (ii) that it is possible to develop our faculty of empathy via various occult techniques, such as rite of internal adept, the camlad rite of the abyss, and by a conscious – a willed – pathei mathos manifest in such things as “insight roles”; and (iii) that such a development of such a faculty is an essential part of attaining “gnosis”: of acquiring a knowledge of Being and beings, and which knowledge includes understanding our own unique physis as an individual.

Thus, one of the principles of the O9A – founded on the wisdom that thousands of years of human living, and occultism, and paganism, has bequeathed to us – is that no amount of “scientific theories” and of “reason/logic” and of “experimental evidence” and “technology” can offset the pathei-mathos – the personal understanding, learning, and knowing – that suffering, grief, empathy, and an individual occult quest for gnosis, so personally provide especially if such pathei-mathos is of months, years, decades. For those who have so endured pathei-mathos know – sans words, sans denotatum, sans theories – that the answers provided by “science” and by “logic alone” and by “experimental evidence” and by “technology” are inadequate, insufficient to explain the nature of being, the nature of beings, and especially human physis. Without such pathei-mathos we simply cannot know – sans words, sans denotatum, sans theories – our own physis, let alone the physis of others.

{3} The advanced star game was designed by Myatt to encourage “acausal thinking”; that is, to encourage the type of thinking that does not depend on denotatum, abstractions, or theories. It is interesting to note that several of those who worked with Alan Turing at Bletchley Park were good chess players (e.g. Hugh Alexander) who believed that skill in that game enabled them to make connections (and intuitive leaps) that otherwise they might not have done.



Introducing The Star Game

The O9A Star Game

Order Of Nine Angles


Introducing The Star Game

As mentioned in the text O9A 101: The Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition,

                  “One of the axioms of the occult philosophy of the O9A [Order of Nine Angles] is that it is only possible to apprehend the realm of the acausal (which realm includes but is not limited to the supernatural) by using our (mostly latent) human faculty of empathy – of empathic wordless knowing – and by developing new faculties, such as ‘acausal- thinking’ and which ‘acausal-thinking’ can be developed by esoteric techniques such as The Star Game consisting of as that three-dimensional ‘game’ does of seven boards – arranged as a septenary Tree of Wyrd – with a total of 308 squares and with 81 pieces per player.” {1}

Which provides the esoteric context for The Star Game; with it being an “esoteric language” which uses symbols and their change or metamorphosis instead of words. {2} Furthermore, the particular symbols of The Star Game and their metamorphosis are not, unlike other occult symbols, reducible to – do not have ‘correspondences’ with – any other apprehensible being or beings, material or otherwise, save for living human beings and the living being apprehended as a “civilization” formed as such a civilization is of collocations of particular human beings during a particular Aeon. Which particularity is why esoterically the symbols of The Star Game are described by Adepts as adunations {3} and why The Star Game as an esoteric language re-presents – when ‘played’ – the entire Septenary Tree of Wyrd and all the symbols, and the occult correspondences between symbols, of those seven spheres and the connexions between them.

That is, The Star Game is a new type of human apprehension, and one which does not rely on words, on the meaning(s) assigned to words, or on the categories – the abstractions – which have been posited or assumed and to and by which beings and Being have hitherto been classified, assigned, and described, and thence considered as ‘understood’.

To acquire this new type of human apprehension the person has to construct and then use – ‘play’ – the game. This use is or can be many and various; two examples of which are

                  (i) as an act of solo sorcery where the pieces are used to symbolize, represent, a particular person or a particular civilization or Aeon, in order to either (a) esoterically perceive (understand) that person or civilization or Aeon and thus to possibly foretell the Fate or Fates of such beings, or (b) to affect, to change – to harm or to aid – a particular person or a particular civilization or Aeon; and
                   (ii) as a combat between two sorcerists where one sorcerer is, via the foregoing representation, seeking to affect, to change, a particular person or a particular civilization or Aeon, while their opponent seeks to prevent such changes.

Which use of The Star Game brings us to two questions relevant to our current technological age. First, whether or not The Star Game can be replicated by a complex computer programme to thus become a three-dimensional or virtual reality ‘computer game’ accessible to and playable by anyone with a suitably powerful computer and the necessary accessories. Second, would using such a technological form of The Star Game still be sorcery? That is, would such a technological form of The Star Game still presence the acausal – be a symbiotic alchemical process between sorcerer and adunations as currently manifest in a physical structure and the physical movement of the pieces – or would it be something else, perhaps even a new, technological, type of sorcery appropriate to the emerging New Aeon?

So far, the answer to the first question is moot. While there have been in the past decade one to two attempts to computerize The Star Game they have failed.

The answer to the second question really depends on whether a talented individual or individuals can succeed in computerizing The Star Game with all of its complexity intact. For only the practical use of such a programme will reveal whether or not the creator(s) of the programme has/have also created a new, technological, type of sorcery appropriate to the emerging New Aeon.

{3} The term is derived the Latin adunatus: ad + unare, to unite, make whole. It thus implies “some-thing which when placed in its correct relation to other adunations reveals the unity, the whole, of which it and they are a part.” Expressed exoterically, adunations are sinister-numinous symbols and thus possess acausal energy. That is, they presence or can presence the acausal, just as O9A Esoteric Chant, when correctly performed, presences or can presence the acausal within the psyche of – and sometimes exterior to – those performing such Chant.
