Magick and the Art of War (The evocation of Armageddon).

One of the problems with the opposition to the current economic, religious and political establishment is that those who oppose the current establishment have various different counterproposals, inlcuding the regression to Christianity, Islam and the various religions of the old Aeon, and various forms of the "economic reformation" of Capitalism, tyranny (government) and religion, as opposed to eradicating these three central pillars of human evil.

Generally such establishment opponents consider themselves to be "good" and their establishment enemies to be "evil." I would include in a definition of "goodness" the characteristics of rebellion or resistance against evil and against established "authority (tyranny)," however the history of politics seems to show that while there is often popular support for revolution, revolutions or even "elections" generally result in new forms of tyranny which fail to solve the probems of economic evil and human slavery / impoverishment; this phenomenon is also mirrored in the "religious" arena where often the response to a corrupt religion or religious personality cultism is to start a new corrupt religion or to revere some new religious tyrant as the object of personality cultism.

God and the evocation of "good spirits."

http://www.excatholicsforchrist.com/images/priest.JPG

One of the problems here is that when people speak of God or "good spirits," they are entirely influenced by their personal definition of the term "good." When the chaplains of the armies of the Anglo-American state terrorists offer religious rituals and services to their militia and when they bury their dead, they evoke (call upon) Jesus and the hosts of heaven; they constantly use the word "good." This process of hypnosis has been going on throughout history; all throughout the crusades, the slave trade, the Inquisition and numerous Christian wars, the Christians have been evoking what is "good" and have considered those who have evoked different deities to be "evil," heretical etc., however by an Anarchist definition of “good,” the history of Christianity would appear to be a history of the propagation of human evil in the name of goodness.

Similarly when we consider the oft quote Masonic mantra "Masons take "good" men and make them better" we are referring to their own personal definition of "good."

Let us consider the example of their current cult leader, Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul, Duke of Kent Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England and First Grand Principal of the Supreme Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of England; Grand Master of the Order of St Michael and St George; Royal Knight of the Garter; Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order; Personal Aide-de-Camp to the Queen; Order of St George and St Constantine, 1st Class; The Most Illustrious Order of Tri Shakti Patta, 1st Class; Knight Grand Band; the Order of the Star of Africa, Grand Cordon; the Order of the Renaissance, Grand Cross; the Order of St Olav, Grand Cross; Colonel, of the Scots Guards; Colonel-in-Chief, of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers; Royal Colonel, of the 1st Battalion, The Rifles; Deputy Colonel-in-Chief, of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards; Honorary Air Commodore, RAF Leuchars; Honorary Air Chief Marshal, Royal Air Force; Colonel-in-Chief, of The Lorne Scots (Peel, Dufferin and Halton Regiment); Chancellor of the University of Surrey and 'President of The Scout Association'

http://www.keepmilitarymuseum.org/images/gallery/primary/rwg07144.jpg

So let us consider the question, with regards to the current Masonic cult leader, “Has Masonry taken this "good" man and made him better?” What we have here is a person who clearly propagates tyranny (monarchy specifically), Capitalism, state terrorism, narco-terrorism, etc. Thus when the Masonic cultists speak of "good" and that they believe in "God," such terms are entirely related to their defintion of "good;" in reality they are referring to a psychological projection of the Creator which is the god of state terrorism, narco-terrorsm, tyranny, Capitalism etc.

Similarly with Christianity.

http://biblicalpaths.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/bennyhinn_narrowweb__300x3870.jpg

The economic system of Christianity is essentially Capitalism; the chosen political system of Christendom is various forms of police statism; the tyranny of Capitalists; a "good" Christian is generally considered to be a "good" Capitalist, an anti-Communist and a person who does "not" resist authority (tyranny) and the Capitalist system; this is a generalisation of the majority of Christians of course and would exclude the liberation theology movement (i.e., Marxist Christians) and Anarchist Christians who represent a tiny minority in comparison to the masses of Capitalist Christians. What I wish to point out is that the evocation by Christians of the spiritual forces of "good" is entirely illusionary; the term "good" appeals to most people linguistically but it is entirely subject to numerous subjective definitions.

Magick and the evocation of demons.

On the other hand we find that among those of the ilk of Crowley who have rejected the evil and hypocrisy of Christianity and whose spirituality is rooted in necromantic magick (the summoning of ancestral spirits), that it is often what Christians would define as "demons" which are summoned, since they are generally entirely unchristian archetypes and the Christians seem to define enemy dieties as demonic.

http://tuberose.com/Graphics/depleted-uranium.2005.jpeg

It is quite easy to understand why someone like the Masonic cult leader, the Duke of Kent who is a perpetrator of tyranny / monarchy, genocide, infanticide, Capitalist imperialist revolution and whose armies have littered Iraq and Afghanistan with the equivalent of 1000's of Hiroshimas of radiation, could be considered a "good man"who has been made better by Masonry by those who themselves consider genocide, infanticide, tyanny, Capitalist revolution, imperialism and nuclear war for "God" to be "good."

The Summoning of the armies of Heaven and Hell.

Since it is clear that, as the Christians have done throughout history, one can summon "good (by one's own personal definition of good)" spirits, as the chaplains of the Anglo-American Christian state terrorists do and then terrorise populations who consider the behaviour of the Christians to be "evil," it is clear to me that the summoning of "good" spirits is entirely illusionary, particularly since it is simply not possible to "judge" or "discern" accurately the spirits of the dead.

Submission and Domination.

The magickian using the Abramelin method summons "both" the armies of heaven and hell; the guidance of Abramelin the Mage which is exactly the "opposite" of the Christian tradition is clear; the Magickian is Master (or Mistress); it is the Magickian who seeks dominion, who gives commands, who demands obedience; the opposite method of this is the Christian "submissive" who seeks to be "possessed" and often states "come into my mind" and "take over my life;" this is the Christian recipe for mental instability and possession by ancestral spirits whom the victim will be unable to judge or accurately discern; the "bow down and worship me" temptation is exactly what the Christian submissives do in regards to their magickal relationship with the ancestral world; on the contrary, the Abramelin Magician demands "obey me;" he (or she) makes a list of demands to the gods; it is not an act of worship; it is the Magickian's will which is sacred, and that will is known perfectly by the Magickian whereas the will of the gods is impossible to discern perfectly anyway.

Slaves and Masters.

To use the language of the two archetypes of the popular BDSM culture (i.e., master and slave), the magickian who seeks to impose his or her will upon the armies of Heaven and Hell is a “Master” or “Mistress,” they are "dominants" whose own will is paramount; whereas the victim who seeks to be submissive and subservient is simply a “slave” and a “possession.” Whereas on earth one may communicate with a Master or Mistress and discern their will, when the submissive has Masters or Mistresses in the spiritual world it is almost impossible to discern their true nature.

Reincarnation and Afterlife Beliefs.

With regards to afterlife beliefs, the New Age movement is a mixture of reincarnationists, atheists (such as the LaVeyans) and Neopagans who hold traditional afterlife beliefs. Necromancy of course serves no function to those who are atheists or who believe strictly in reincarnation; in the latter case the spirit at the point of death is believed to simply migrate to a new body and there is thus no ancestral realm to communicate with; however in reality most reincarnationists (including the Hindus) appear to believe in a rather confusing mixture of afterlife beliefs “and” reincarnation; Hindu reincarnationists believe that the soul is everntually liberated after many lives and goes on to live in a heavenly paradise, however this does not explain the existence of Hindu demons and why they were not reincarnated; never the less for the Hindu there is still a realm of benevolent and malevolent spirits, despite this contradicting their reincarnation beliefs. I should out myself and state that I entirely reject the theory of reincarnation; however this “belief” can neither be proven nor disproven; it is simply a position I take based upon a lifetime of subjective spiritual experiences.

I should also point out that I do not consider the 72 Goetic spirits to be definitions written in stone; they simply represent archetypal ancestral spirits of which there are countless myraids, much like the 12 archetypes of astrology or the 22 archetypes of the major arcana.

The New Age (New Aeon).

The New Aeon movement is full of old hippies, pacifists, tree huggers, reincarnationists and those who believe that the current economic establishment can be defeated by the power of prayer or meditation or otherwise peaceful means; it is an eclectic mix of well meaning Canutes attempting to "hold back the waves," Unfortunately the Capitalist elites are entirely militant and similarly the resistance must be militant if it is to be successful; the mantra of "Magick is the art and science of briging about change in accordance with the will" is not simply a reference of some kind of meaningless ritualistic hocus pocus; the point of evoking the gods (ancestral spirits) is to manifest change on earth; change which must be carried out also by the militant will of earthbound agents.

The Evocation of Armageddon (The Apocalytpic Destruction of Capitalism).

There are generally rather disturbing passages in Crowley's alleged channelling of Aiwass from an Anarchist perspective; "trample down the weak" and so forth; however this entirely represents the behaviour of the Christian Capitalist militia who mostly have a disdain for Crowley; this is anyway an essential aspect of the "Art of War;" the point of war is not endless martyrdom, it is total victory, and this victory over the police states of humanity is one which I forsee can only be brought about by the application of advanced alchemy (science); in particular "nuclear" weapons.

The alchemist's quest was widely misunderstood to have been the attempt to convert lead to gold, when in reality it was the generally the attempt to convert mass to energy and light; this secret is a secret no more; unfortunately the the end result of this alchemical quest, the application of this science to war, will entail a global war the like of which humanity has no memory. It has been foretold, predicted, prophesied, and what has been written of this apocalyptic age will in time come to pass by the application of militant will; it is simply inevitable.

Praising and flattering the gods.

It is often claimed by Christians that they "love God (i.e., their own personal projection of goodness);" this "God" is also an "experience" which many claim to have, and yet they have no way of discerning the origin of spiritual experiences, whether the source is of malevolent or benevolent; a more important questions is whether "we" on earth are loved, admired and respected by the gods; for why else would they heed our demands; it is very unlikely that anything other than beings are low intelligence are impressed by to ritualistic flattery, praise, submission and subservience; such things are more likely to lead to a contempt of humanity.

Long ago I evoked the 7 angels (demons) of the Apocalypse and have since then sought to incite the world to nuclear war. My demands are the complete and total defeat of the Capitalists, their eradication from the face of the earth (the holocaust of the "chaff"), the destruction of all nations (governments), the eradication of all forms of organised religion and the creation of of New Heaven and a New Earth. While this is my true will and I have perfect faith that it will come to pass, I must point out that this is also the predicted in the Book of Revelation; however strangely enough, I expect those who will be the most resistant this will be the Christians themselves, who seem to represent entirely the anti-thesis of their alleged historical founder, who himself bears all the hallmarks of the "Master" magickian of his era, but whose legacy has given birth to all manner of evil and hypocrisy.

The point of prophecy and magick is not to predict the future, but to change the future.
The fulfillment of prophecy does not occur by "miraculous" means; it occurs when agents on earth utilise their own will and invoke (personify) such prophecies.

Interesting posts, Commandante. I personally do not practice magick, I prefer yoga, martial arts, t'ai chi, meditation, prayer etc., but to each their own.

Forgive me for what may seem like a rather obvious question to an expert, but if all of these 'Goetic demons' are personified by the person who invokes them (ie. what one invokes one becomes), then isn't this a rather ephemeral play on the subconscious psyche of the magickian who wishes to increase his power (ie. impose his will and see his demands met) if the magickian doesn't actually believe in Hell or the literal existence of extra-dimensional / extra-planar entities that these demons are supposed to represent?

In other words, without faith in the existence of these demons as entities / actual other-worldly beings, isn't the act of invocation as damaging to the psyche as a dangerous delusion?

Or have I got that all backwards? Perhaps knowing them only as 'ancestral spirits' neutralizes any damaging effects on the mind of the magickian?

Would appreciate your wisdom.

Well these are all forms of "magick;" the attempt to use your mind to transform your existence and that of the world around you.

Well I suppose that for the person who practices necromancy and who does not believe in the existence of the gods (ancestral spirits) and who is a materialist or strict reincarnationist, then from my point of view it all seems entirely meaningless, since there would be no gods (ancestral spirits) to evoke and it would simply be a form of delusion.

Yes, of course; we could have "faith" that a planet of blue cheese circles the sun, but it would not make it a reality; the shamanic experience of the gods however is generally based upon subjective experiences, which are by definition occuring within the person's consciousness; a person may receive a vision of a blue eyed, blonde haired Aryan Jesus and believe it to be true; so there are many dubious experiences in the subjective world which when subjected to reason make no sense, however generally the collective human shamanic experiences of the afterlife have certain commonalities; the evocation of the gods in conjunction with psychoactive useage generally bears fruit in a common testimonial, that of the perception that the ancestral world does exist and that interaction with human consciousness and is subjectively real; however it is pointless to pursue scientific proof of what occurs in the subjective realm.

Or have I got that all backwards? Perhaps knowing them only as 'ancestral spirits' neutralizes any damaging effects on the mind of the magickian?


Well the gods (ancestors) actually exist or they do not; the soul is eternal or it is not; unfortunately it is impossible to offer emprical proof of the non empirical.

In his introduction to the Goetia, Aleister Crowley describes the Goetic "spirits" as, quote, "portions of the human brain". What is actually going on is a type of psychoanalysis: the magician seeks to know himself, including those subconscious aspects. Some of those aspects are objectified as "Goetic spirits" and are investigated. If one particular "demon" represents an unflattering or negative part of his psyche, the magician then banishes it.

I think Thelonius that it is inevitable that those who are atheists (such as the LaVeyans) or reincarnationists will find it necessary reduce Crowley's channeling and necromancy to "psychology," otherwise their world views will make no sense; the idea that Crowley was a spiritualist who actually believed in the realm of the gods that he was evoking makes no sense at all to an atheist or a strict reincarnationist; in fact he appears simply as the height of insanity from such persepectives; there is always this tendency to turn a popular figure into a proponent of a person's personal belief system; this is certainly the case with the Christians who worship the God of Capitalism and propertyism and Buddhists who believe in idolatry.

Frankly those who wish to interpret Crowley purely from a psychological perspective would find a great deal of resistance from the psychological profession; the summoning and channeling of demons in the modern age is generally a fast track to incarceration in a mental hospital; unless of course one is part of the Christian establishment such as George "God told me to invade Iraq" Bush whose direct link to the voice of God is widely believed, or Elizabeth Windsor's claim to be Jesus' representative on earth to all Anglicans.

Absolutely, but then a materialist or strict reincarnationist may harbour a delusion stronger than the believer. No? A simpler delusion, perhaps.

So, the psychoactives (drugs) make it more real than it is? No, wait; that is just begging the question 'What is real?'? I see your point...but, does not pure subjectivity lead to solipsism?

Yes, however, it does not follow that as I (and you) have immortal/eternal souls, that gods exist; however it may follow that the spirits of our ancestors reside within each of us, from the realm of mind and/or genetic (body) memory, and we may see this as the work of the gods, divine continuity, etc.

There is the famous story told by Bertrand Russell of a Solipsist (i.e., a soloist) who wrote a letter to him and stated that Solopsim is such a wonderful philosophy that he was surprised that there was not "more of us." Of course if Solipsism is true there is only one person in the whole universe (me) and you are all illusions; of course I do not believe such nonsense.

The "hammer" cure for Solipsism generally works; when the solipsist states that only they exist, just keep hitting them with a hammer, and on each occassion where they scream out in pain, just assure them that only they really exist and that the pain is an illusion; they will soon change their mind.

What is real?

Well the subjective realm is real but it is just not "empirical"; feelings such as love and the various human emotions are "real;" they constitute part fo reality, but if we ask "how long is love and how much does it weigh?" and "what is the height and colour of beauty?" such questions make no sense objectively; never the less such non things form part of our reality; similarly with what we would commonly define as shamanic, spiritual, metaphysical experiences; this does not mean that such experiences are "true," such as George Bush's claim that God spoke directly to him with regards to the invasion of Iraq.

There are numerous trip reports on http://www.erowid.org for example; such experiences may seem meaningful to the recipients, but if they have visions of an angel with 7 heads, it does not mean that such a thing exists.

Of course not.

It is all a play of the mind; we say things (ideas) like 'Freedom', 'Truth', 'Peace' and 'Love' are real because we feel them or believe in them, but devoid of emotion or faith there are merely mechanical equations; "temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect, trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose", to paraphrase Agent Smith from the Matrix. Maybe psychoactives are what he needed, hmm? (:p) It is no different with demons, or magick I suppose.

Frankly I don't believe that it is possible to understand Crowley or indeed any form of shamanism purely by academic study. A person who simply "reads" Crowley's writings is unlikely to understand his mental state; similarly with almost any shaman. The opening of the spiritual realm to the person utilising psychoactives, sex magick and ritual magick is an inner experiental realm

Well you would probably have to stick to the main urban regions such as Dublin or Belfast. Most of the major European cities have esoteric bookshops where you can stick up a photo-copied flyer. With regards to the meet ups in London or the South of England, as far as I can tell there is no expense or great effort involved; it is just a general "let's meet at campsite x or pub x." They are essentially social meetups which follow a schedule of drinking, getting stoned, conversing with others etc; there is no formal agenda or "Great Leader" they have more in common with an Anarchist squat party.

Indeed; but a partner to externalize the acts is useful. Crowley had many sex partners, I understand.

Off-topic question, but what do you make of Crowley's connexion to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology? There was an 'unholy' trinity of subversive sex magicians and ritualists in those days, was there not? The third member of that group was a famous NASA Rocket Scientist, I believe, and it is alleged they all had connexions to MI6 and the CIA. Care to share on this?

Well I have written numerous articles on the Scientology cult over the years, but essentially http://www.xenu.net/ gives a rundown of the the anti-Scientology perspective; Hubbard was essentially a rather bad science fiction writer; numerous "secret documents" which are only given to the higher echelons of the cult are circulating the Iternet; frankly their belief system is likely only to be believed by a child; however after many years in the cult, when these ridiculous secrets are revealed, many still stick with the cult.

http://www.solitarytrees.net/pickets/elrond/images/xenu.jpg

The following is based upon the top secret OT III document which the lower echelons of the cult are forbidden to read:

I'm going to tell you a story. Are you sitting comfortably? Right, then I'll begin.
Once upon a time (75 million years ago to be more precise) there was an alien galactic ruler named Xenu. Xenu was in charge of all the planets in this part of the galaxy including our own planet Earth, except in those days it was called Teegeeack.

Now Xenu had a problem. All of the 76 planets he controlled were overpopulated. Each planet had on average 178 billion people. He wanted to get rid of all the overpopulation so he had a plan.

Xenu took over complete control with the help of renegades to defeat the good people and the Loyal Officers. Then with the help of psychiatrists he called in billions of people for income tax inspections where they were instead given injections of alcohol and glycol mixed to paralyse them. Then they were put into space planes that looked exactly like DC8s (except they had rocket motors instead of propellers).


These DC8 space planes then flew to planet Earth where the paralysed people were stacked around the bases of volcanoes in their hundreds of billions. When they had finished stacking them around then H-bombs were lowered into the volcanoes. Xenu then detonated all the H-bombs at the same time and everyone was killed.

The story doesn't end there though. Since everyone has a soul (called a "thetan" in this story) then you have to trick souls into not coming back again. So while the hundreds of billions of souls were being blown around by the nuclear winds he had special electronic traps that caught all the souls in electronic beams (the electronic beams were sticky like fly-paper).

After he had captured all these souls he had them packed into boxes and taken to a few huge cinemas. There all the souls had to spend days watching special 3D motion pictures that told them what life should be like and many confusing things. In this film they were shown false pictures and told they were God, The Devil and Christ. In the story this process is called "implanting".

When the films ended and the souls left the cinema these souls started to stick together because since they had all seen the same film they thought they were the same people. They clustered in groups of a few thousand. Now because there were only a few living bodies left they stayed as clusters and inhabited these bodies.

As for Xenu, the Loyal Officers finally overthrew him and they locked him away in a mountain on one of the planets. He is kept in by a force-field powered by an eternal battery and Xenu is still alive today.

That is the end of the story. And so today everyone is full of these clusters of souls called "body thetans". And if we are to be a free soul then we have to remove all these "body thetans" and pay lots of money to do so. And the only reason people believe in God and Christ was because it was in the film their body thetans saw 75 million years ago.

Well what did you think of that story?

What? You thought it was a stupid story?

Well so do we. However, this story is the core belief in the religion known as Scientology.* If people knew about this story then most people would never get involved in it. This story is told to you when you reach one of their secret levels called OT III. After that you are supposed to telepathically communicate with these body thetans to make them go away. You have to pay a lot of money to get to this level and do this (or you have to work very hard for the organisation on extremely low pay for many years).

We are telling you this story as a warning. If you become involved with Scientology then we would like you to do so with your eyes open and fully aware of the sort of material it contains.

Most of the Scientologists who work in their Dianetics* centres and so called "Churches" of Scientology do not know this story since they are not allowed to hear it until they reach the secret "upper" levels of Scientology. It may take them many years before they reach this level if they ever do. The ones who do know it are forced to keep it a secret and not tell it to those people who are joining Scientology.
Part of the first page of the secret OT III document in L. Ron Hubbard's own handwriting


Now you have read this you know their big secret. Don't let us put you off joining though. http://www.solitarytrees.net/pickets/elrond/21coset.htm

Frankly although Scientologists like to make a connection between Crowley and Hubbard, there appears to have been none; Hubbard was a member of the O.T.O for a few months and clearly, however the two never met.

Jack Parsons

Parsons is I think the "rocket scientist" you refer to and an entirely different character who was certainly in Crowley's circle and corresponded with Crowley; Parsons and Hubbard were former magickal partners and also business partners who had a rather severe "falling out." Parsons considered his "rocket science" to be essentially a magickal working; he would combine magickal rituals with his scientific experiments; there is an abundance of literature and web material on Parsons.

As I often state; the alchemical quest was never about converting lead to gold, but rather mass to energy; fortunately this is no longer a secret and is widely known.

My partner (Venus) did when we were living in London start a quite successful Neopagan meetup group by usiing http://www.meetup.com; it is just a matter of meeting up in a pub really.

Off-topic question, but what do you make of Crowley's connexion to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology? There was an 'unholy' trinity of subversive sex magicians and ritualists in those days, was there not? The third member of that group was a famous NASA Rocket Scientist, I believe, and it is alleged they all had connexions to MI6 and the CIA. Care to share on this?



Crowley does not seem to have ever met Hubbard, but a letter from Crowley to Karl Germer still exists calling both Hubbard and Parsons "idiotic louts", and a previous letter from Crowley to Parsons warning Parsons to stay away from Hubbard, as it was Crowley's opinion that Hubbard was a con artist.

Parsons was indeed a rocket scientist for NASA. Neither Crowley, Parsons, nor Hubbard appear to have been connected with M16 or the CIA, although the CIA possibly assisted the FBI in investigating Crowley and some later OTO offshoots.

]So, the psychoactives (drugs) make it more real than it is?

In my opinion it's not that the psychoactives make the experience more real, it's that they actually change your brain chemistry which in turn stimulates a normally dormant function. This function can open doors to aspects/levels of reality that aren't a part of our normal 3d senses that we perceive our world with. Kind of like changing the frequency on the radio to get a different station. At the same time misuse, misunderstanding, improper setting, mindframe, dosage etc can sort of stick you inbetween "stations" or somewhere you don't want to be. This generally cause a lot of static and noise so to speak, landing you nowhere specific or somewhere that does you no benefit. Not something to mess around with blindly!

Many if not most psychoactives are close derrivitives/relatives of DMT which is produced naturally by your endrocrine system, more specifically the pineal gland. This tryptamine is released during dreams, near death experience, at death, during mystical experience, during types of meditation etc and perhaps even during "extraterrestrial" encounters whether it be simple communication or full blown "abduction/contact".

Terrence McKenna, Rick Straussman, Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson are some great authors who cover this subject from a diversity of perspectives.

Yes. I think the common advice which is given to those who use such substances is that the material and social environment one is in, is likely to affect the "trip." For example if a person is depressed and in a very depressing environment, substances like marijuana, opiates and cocaine will usually lift the person "up," whereas shamanic psychoactives used in such circumstances can lead to rather horrific experiences (commonly known as the "bad trip"). Similarly if one uses such substances for spiritual reasons, in conjunction with magickal rituals involving the evocation of the gods, this can lead to "spiritual" experiences which are associated with the evocation. Personally despite a lifetime of use, I am very sensitive to such substances and I almost only ever have rather terrifying experiences (experiences of hell) on psychoactives which would commonly be defined as "bad trips;" however I readily accept and openly seek out such experiences, whereas those for who are unused to such experiences, they can be psychologically overwhelming.

Frankly in the modern culture psychoactives are often used as "recreational" experiences and "party drugs;" this is totally beyond my comprehension; personally I find such experiences to be so terrifying that I cannot conceive of using them for pleasure. The attitude of the South American shamans is much more appropriate; they treat such substances with great respect; they are considered more of a sacred journey; a gateway to the realm of visions and revelations. The evocation of the gods is not "fun;" it is deathly serious; the consequences of which can often lead to the total loss of sanity.

Magick and the Art of War (The evocation of Armageddon).

One of the problems with the opposition to the current economic, religious and political establishment is that those who oppose the current establishment have various different counterproposals, inlcuding the regression to Christianity, Islam and the various religions of the old Aeon, and various forms of the "economic reformation" of Capitalism, tyranny (government) and religion, as opposed to eradicating these three central pillars of human evil.

Generally such establishment opponents consider themselves to be "good" and their establishment enemies to be "evil." I would include in a definition of "goodness" the characteristics of rebellion or resistance against evil and against established "authority (tyranny)," however the history of politics seems to show that while there is often popular support for revolution, revolutions or even "elections" generally result in new forms of tyranny which fail to solve the probems of economic evil and human slavery / impoverishment; this phenomenon is also mirrored in the "religious" arena where often the response to a corrupt religion or religious personality cultism is to start a new corrupt religion or to revere some new religious tyrant as the object of personality cultism.

God and the evocation of "good spirits."

http://www.excatholicsforchrist.com/images/priest.JPG

One of the problems here is that when people speak of God or "good spirits," they are entirely influenced by their personal definition of the term "good." When the chaplains of the armies of the Anglo-American state terrorists offer religious rituals and services to their militia and when they bury their dead, they evoke (call upon) Jesus and the hosts of heaven; they constantly use the word "good." This process of hypnosis has been going on throughout history; all throughout the crusades, the slave trade, the Inquisition and numerous Christian wars, the Christians have been evoking what is "good" and have considered those who have evoked different deities to be "evil," heretical etc., however by an Anarchist definition of “good,” the history of Christianity would appear to be a history of the propagation of human evil in the name of goodness.

Similarly when we consider the oft quote Masonic mantra "Masons take "good" men and make them better" we are referring to their own personal definition of "good."

Let us consider the example of their current cult leader, Prince Edward George Nicholas Patrick Paul, Duke of Kent Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England and First Grand Principal of the Supreme Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of England; Grand Master of the Order of St Michael and St George; Royal Knight of the Garter; Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order; Personal Aide-de-Camp to the Queen; Order of St George and St Constantine, 1st Class; The Most Illustrious Order of Tri Shakti Patta, 1st Class; Knight Grand Band; the Order of the Star of Africa, Grand Cordon; the Order of the Renaissance, Grand Cross; the Order of St Olav, Grand Cross; Colonel, of the Scots Guards; Colonel-in-Chief, of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers; Royal Colonel, of the 1st Battalion, The Rifles; Deputy Colonel-in-Chief, of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards; Honorary Air Commodore, RAF Leuchars; Honorary Air Chief Marshal, Royal Air Force; Colonel-in-Chief, of The Lorne Scots (Peel, Dufferin and Halton Regiment); Chancellor of the University of Surrey and 'President of The Scout Association'

http://www.keepmilitarymuseum.org/images/gallery/primary/rwg07144.jpg

So let us consider the question, with regards to the current Masonic cult leader, “Has Masonry taken this "good" man and made him better?” What we have here is a person who clearly propagates tyranny (monarchy specifically), Capitalism, state terrorism, narco-terrorism, etc. Thus when the Masonic cultists speak of "good" and that they believe in "God," such terms are entirely related to their defintion of "good;" in reality they are referring to a psychological projection of the Creator which is the god of state terrorism, narco-terrorsm, tyranny, Capitalism etc.

http://www.creative-i.info/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/mammon-euro-dollar1.jpg

Similarly with Christianity.

http://biblicalpaths.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/bennyhinn_narrowweb__300x3870.jpg

The economic system of Christianity is essentially Capitalism; the chosen political system of Christendom is various forms of police statism; the tyranny of Capitalists; a "good" Christian is generally considered to be a "good" Capitalist, an anti-Communist and a person who does "not" resist authority (tyranny) and the Capitalist system; this is a generalisation of the majority of Christians of course and would exclude the liberation theology movement (i.e., Marxist Christians) and Anarchist Christians who represent a tiny minority in comparison to the masses of Capitalist Christians. What I wish to point out is that the evocation by Christians of the spiritual forces of "good" is entirely illusionary; the term "good" appeals to most people linguistically but it is entirely subject to numerous subjective definitions.

Magick and the evocation of demons.

On the other hand we find that among those of the ilk of Crowley who have rejected the evil and hypocrisy of Christianity and whose spirituality is rooted in necromantic magick (the summoning of ancestral spirits), that it is often what Christians would define as "demons" which are summoned, since they are generally entirely unchristian archetypes and the Christians seem to define enemy dieties as demonic.

http://tuberose.com/Graphics/depleted-uranium.2005.jpeg

It is quite easy to understand why someone like the Masonic cult leader, the Duke of Kent who is a perpetrator of tyranny / monarchy, genocide, infanticide, Capitalist imperialist revolution and whose armies have littered Iraq and Afghanistan with the equivalent of 1000's of Hiroshimas of radiation, could be considered a "good man"who has been made better by Masonry by those who themselves consider genocide, infanticide, tyanny, Capitalist revolution, imperialism and nuclear war for "God" to be "good."

http://www.luciferia.tv/1ChildrenOftheSlaves/baphomet666.gif


The Summoning of the armies of Heaven and Hell.

Since it is clear that, as the Christians have done throughout history, one can summon "good (by one's own personal definition of good)" spirits, as the chaplains of the Anglo-American Christian state terrorists do and then terrorise populations who consider the behaviour of the Christians to be "evil," it is clear to me that the summoning of "good" spirits is entirely illusionary, particularly since it is simply not possible to "judge" or "discern" accurately the spirits of the dead.

Submission and Domination.

The magickian using the Abramelin method summons "both" the armies of heaven and hell; the guidance of Abramelin the Mage which is exactly the "opposite" of the Christian tradition is clear; the Magickian is Master (or Mistress); it is the Magickian who seeks dominion, who gives commands, who demands obedience; the opposite method of this is the Christian "submissive" who seeks to be "possessed" and often states "come into my mind" and "take over my life;" this is the Christian recipe for mental instability and possession by ancestral spirits whom the victim will be unable to judge or accurately discern; the "bow down and worship me" temptation is exactly what the Christian submissives do in regards to their magickal relationship with the ancestral world; on the contrary, the Abramelin Magician demands "obey me;" he (or she) makes a list of demands to the gods; it is not an act of worship; it is the Magickian's will which is sacred, and that will is known perfectly by the Magickian whereas the will of the gods is impossible to discern perfectly anyway.

Slaves and Masters.

To use the language of the two archetypes of the popular BDSM culture (i.e., master and slave), the magickian who seeks to impose his or her will upon the armies of Heaven and Hell is a “Master” or “Mistress,” they are "dominants" whose own will is paramount; whereas the victim who seeks to be submissive and subservient is simply a “slave” and a “possession.” Whereas on earth one may communicate with a Master or Mistress and discern their will, when the submissive has Masters or Mistresses in the spiritual world it is almost impossible to discern their true nature.

Reincarnation and Afterlife Beliefs.

With regards to afterlife beliefs, the New Age movement is a mixture of reincarnationists, atheists (such as the LaVeyans) and Neopagans who hold traditional afterlife beliefs. Necromancy of course serves no function to those who are atheists or who believe strictly in reincarnation; in the latter case the spirit at the point of death is believed to simply migrate to a new body and there is thus no ancestral realm to communicate with; however in reality most reincarnationists (including the Hindus) appear to believe in a rather confusing mixture of afterlife beliefs “and” reincarnation; Hindu reincarnationists believe that the soul is everntually liberated after many lives and goes on to live in a heavenly paradise, however this does not explain the existence of Hindu demons and why they were not reincarnated; never the less for the Hindu there is still a realm of benevolent and malevolent spirits, despite this contradicting their reincarnation beliefs. I should out myself and state that I entirely reject the theory of reincarnation; however this “belief” can neither be proven nor disproven; it is simply a position I take based upon a lifetime of subjective spiritual experiences.

I should also point out that I do not consider the 72 Goetic spirits to be definitions written in stone; they simply represent archetypal ancestral spirits of which there are countless myraids, much like the 12 archetypes of astrology or the 22 archetypes of the major arcana.

The New Age (New Aeon).

The New Aeon movement is full of old hippies, pacifists, tree huggers, reincarnationists and those who believe that the current economic establishment can be defeated by the power of prayer or meditation or otherwise peaceful means; it is an eclectic mix of well meaning Canutes attempting to "hold back the waves," Unfortunately the Capitalist elites are entirely militant and similarly the resistance must be militant if it is to be successful; the mantra of "Magick is the art and science of briging about change in accordance with the will" is not simply a reference of some kind of meaningless ritualistic hocus pocus; the point of evoking the gods (ancestral spirits) is to manifest change on earth; change which must be carried out also by the militant will of earthbound agents.

The Evocation of Armageddon (The Apocalytpic Destruction of Capitalism).

There are generally rather disturbing passages in Crowley's alleged channelling of Aiwass from an Anarchist perspective; "trample down the weak" and so forth; however this entirely represents the behaviour of the Christian Capitalist militia who mostly have a disdain for Crowley; this is anyway an essential aspect of the "Art of War;" the point of war is not endless martyrdom, it is total victory, and this victory over the police states of humanity is one which I forsee can only be brought about by the application of advanced alchemy (science); in particular "nuclear" weapons.

The alchemist's quest was widely misunderstood to have been the attempt to convert lead to gold, when in reality it was the generally the attempt to convert mass to energy and light; this secret is a secret no more; unfortunately the the end result of this alchemical quest, the application of this science to war, will entail a global war the like of which humanity has no memory. It has been foretold, predicted, prophesied, and what has been written of this apocalyptic age will in time come to pass by the application of militant will; it is simply inevitable.

Praising and flattering the gods.

It is often claimed by Christians that they "love God (i.e., their own personal projection of goodness);" this "God" is also an "experience" which many claim to have, and yet they have no way of discerning the origin of spiritual experiences, whether the source is of malevolent or benevolent; a more important questions is whether "we" on earth are loved, admired and respected by the gods; for why else would they heed our demands; it is very unlikely that anything other than beings are low intelligence are impressed by to ritualistic flattery, praise, submission and subservience; such things are more likely to lead to a contempt of humanity.

Long ago I evoked the 7 angels (demons) of the Apocalypse and have since then sought to incite the world to nuclear war. My demands are the complete and total defeat of the Capitalists, their eradication from the face of the earth (the holocaust of the "chaff"), the destruction of all nations (governments), the eradication of all forms of organised religion and the creation of of New Heaven and a New Earth. While this is my true will and I have perfect faith that it will come to pass, I must point out that this is also the predicted in the Book of Revelation; however strangely enough, I expect those who will be the most resistant this will be the Christians themselves, who seem to represent entirely the anti-thesis of their alleged historical founder, who himself bears all the hallmarks of the "Master" magickian of his era, but whose legacy has given birth to all manner of evil and hypocrisy.

The point of prophecy and magick is not to predict the future, but to change the future.
The fulfillment of prophecy does not occur by "miraculous" means; it occurs when agents on earth utilise their own will and invoke (personify) such prophecies.

I am not aware of Crowley participating in magickal operations which involved magickal partners who were "forced" to do anything against their will. However the history of Christianity in general has been a history full of tyrannies, economic slavery, imperialism, inquisitions, bigotry, intolerance and reigious wars; those who consider this violent and oppressive religion to be "good" are quite likely to accuse their enemies of exactly what such accusers themselves are guilty of defending; the person who uses Orwellian Newspeak to defend the evil of existing systems will generally consider evil to be good and resistance to such evil to be evil itself.

Nietzsche, the "ubermensche (superior man)," "slave morality," and beyond good and evil

Probably the widely misunderstood Nietzsche was prior to the Crowley the main philosopher of "Thelemic Philosophy;" all that differentiates him from Crowley's moral philosophy is that he did not use the term "Thelema;" never the less those who adhere to Nietzsche's moral philosophy are thelemites by default, just as all Anarchists are (with the exception of the Anarcho-Capitalists), irrespective of whether they identify with the term (Thelema).

From Nietzsche's perspective, "religious morality" was simply the morality of a slave; it was a discernement of good and evil designed to control and subdue humanity. The religious moralist generally defines numerous sins of restriction as "immoral" thus those who follow their natural erotic nature are considered "immoral" and there are numerous derogatory titles assigned to especially those of the female gender who refuse to submit to the authority of monogamous, paternalistic, religious males, such as "slut," "loose woman," "whore," etc., all terms to describe a sexually liberated woman.

The slave is confined by numerous religious laws, unable to think for themselves, revering the laws usually of some ancient superstitious ancestor; whereas Nietzsche 's concept of the "ubermensche" was a modern, educated, philosophical person who was able to think for himself and to utilise his or her own reason to discern morality rather than the metaphysical babblings of some ancient ancestor; this is very much the same view as the Thelemite.

Beyond Good and Evil.

If we place monkeys in a cage and they have a sex orgy, we generally do not consider this to be "evil," since they behave entirely according to their nature and have no written "holy books" to guide them on sexual morality; the term "sexual morality" has absolutely no meaning for them. Similarly the person who acts in accordance with their nature in the erotic sense, and who engages with others in consensual acts of eroticism does no harm to themselves or to others; rather they merely follow their nature and are thus "beyond good and evil." The mind of the slave conditioned by the religious hypnosis however may judge such acts as "evil" simply because some ancient ancestor allegedly heard the "voice of god" telling him that human eroticism was "evil."

Marraige as Slavery.

The institution of marraige is certainly a remnant of the age of slavery where a man would purchase a woman, and if she followed her natural desire to be involved in an erotic relationship with someone other than her "owner" who had bought and paid for her, the woman was considered "evil" and often executed; for those whose minds are free of religious hypnosis and who consider monogamy and marraige to be "sins" against human nature, it is a rather obvious conclusion to come to that this institution of marraige has all the marks of a relationship between a slavemaster and a sex slave; however to the victim of religious hypnosis, this form of slavery and the restriction of the natural will is "good" and those who simply follow their nature are "evil."

Sex is the most powerful instinct in man. The politician and the priest have understood from the very beginning that sex is the most driving energy in man. It has to be curtailed, it has to be cut. If man is allowed total Freedom in sex, then there will be no possibility to dominate him. To make a slave out of him will be impossible.

Have you not seen it being done? When you want a bull to be yoked to a cart, what do you do? You castrate him, you destroy his sex energy. And have you seen the difference between a bull and an ox? What a difference! An ox is a poor phenomenon, a slave. A bull is a beauty; a bull is a glorious pheonomenon, a great splendor. See a bull walking, how he walks like an emperor! And see an ox pulling a cart.

The same has been done to man. The sex instinct has been curtailed, cut, crippled. Man does not exist as the bull now, he exists like the ox, and each man is pulling a thousand and one carts. Look and you will find behind you a thousand and one carts, and you are yoked to them.

Why can’t you yoke a bull? The bull is too powerful. If he sees a cow passing by, he will throw both you and the cart, and he will move to the cow! He will not bother a bit about who you are, and he will not listen. It will be impossible to control the bull. Sex energy is life energy; it is uncontrollable. And the politician and the priest are not interested in you, they are interested in channeling your energy into other directions. So there is a certain Mechanism behind it--it has to be understood.

Sex repression, tabooing sex, is the very foundation of human slavery. Man cannot be free unless sex is free. Man cannot be really free unless his sex energy is allowed natural growth.

These are the five tricks through which man has been turned into a slave, into an ugly phenomenon, a cripple.

The first is:
Keep man as weak as possible if you want to dominate him. If the priest wants to dominate you or the politician wants to dominate you, you have to be kept as weak as possible. And the best way to keep a man weak is not to give love total freedom. Love is nourishment..."

"...Second:
Keep man as ignorant and deluded as possible so that he can easily be deceived..."

"...The third secret:
Keep man as frightened as possible. And the sure way is not to allow him love, because love destroys fear--’love casteth out fear.’ When you are not in love you become more interested in security, in safety. When you are in love you are more interested in adventure, in exploration...."

"...The Fourth:
Keep man as miserable as possible--because a miserable man is confused, a miserable man has no self-worth, a miserable man is self-condemnatory, a miserable man feels that he must have done something wrong. A miserable man has no grounding--you can push him from here and there, he can be turned into driftwood very easily. And a miserable man is always ready to be commanded, to be ordered, to be disciplined, because he knows ’On my own I am simply miserable. Maybe someody else can discipline my life.’ He is a ready victim."

"And the fifth:
Keep men as alienated from each other as possible, so that they cannot band together for some purpose of which the priest and the politician may not approve. Keep people separate from each other. Don’t allow them too much intimacy. When people are separate, lonely, alienated from each other, they cannot band together. And there are a thousand and one tricks to keep them apart.

For example, if you are holding the hand of a man--you are a man and you are holding the hand of a man and walking down the road, singing--you will feel guilty because people will start looking at you. Are you gay, homosexual or something? Two men are not allowed to be happy together. They are condemned as homosexuals. Fear arises. If your friend comes and takes your hand in his hand, you look around: ’Is somebody looking or not?’ And you are just in a hurry to drop the hand..."

There are magickians (spiritualists) among humanity who seek to summon the gods to earth and to direct the course of humanity.

Some are malevolent and seek only their advancement at the expense of the enslavement of others, their magickal operations tend to be secretive, their degrees of knowledge are usually sold at a price in Capitalist coin; their cults and inner circles tend to operate rather like gangs of organised Capitalists.

On the other hand, others seek the liberation and enlightenment of humanity, they seek to expose and reveal and to incite revolution against the world's current masters.

Crowley was very much an anti-establshment figure who "revealed" a great deal through his published writings which was formerly only known in esoteric circles; I tend to see him a liberator and a revealer, a moral revolutionary.

Magickal operations can be carried out for malevolent reasons or simply for reasons of self interest, or they can be entirely selfless operations; it is rather like the "Lord of Rings" fictions where both good and evil are entirely militant; they are essentially "armies" but they are both entirely unfluenced by magickians.

http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/1/14277/368585-mordor_super.jpg

Unfortunately throwing "rings" made of a fictional magickal substance into the fires of Mordor will not be sufficient to eradicate the world's Masters of War; such rings of power in the age to come will no doubt be made of Plutonium; the "Fires of Mordor" are the Achillies' Heels of Capitalism; the real Dark Lord of Capitalism has surrounded his kingdom with giant ammunition dumps, the nuclear power stations of Capitalism; it is only a matter of time and the application of militant will before the kingdoms of Capitalism turn to dust, in the blink of an eye, on a day and an hour when expected least.
