An Upsurge Of Interest

O9A. One Image, Ten Thousand Words

Given the upsurge of interest in both the Order of Nine Angles and Mr Myatt as a result of media items about the American neo-nazi group AtomWaffen Division (AWD) – which is linked to several murders – we reproduce a recent post from the TWS Nexion.


Here are some extracts from recent twitter posts by investigative journalist Jake Hanrahan who writes for the New York based – and Pulitzer Prize winning – ProPublica. He is currently undertaking an investigation into the National Socialist group AtomWaffen. Note how he kindly provides a link to a copy of “our” latest effort, A Modern Mysterium: The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A (pdf).

“O9A is strange satanic-fascist umbrella for anyone who follows their brutal ideology. It began in England in the 70s & is believed to have been a brain child of former neo-Nazi turned former jihadist, David Myatt (which he denies) […]

This photo – – is allegedly from Denton/Rape’s Instagram account. Here you can see SIEGE, the Atomwaffen ideological handbook, and to the right an O9A patch (the pic on the right for comparison). I’ve also seen a photo of Kaleb Cole with an O9A patch on his jacket.”

The Enigma of Myatt And The O9A

A Modern Mysterium

This 87 page work contains essays written in the past few years by various authors, and is divided in three parts. Which division reflects the nature of our controversial subject: the relation of the modern Occult group the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) to the person – a self-declared satanist – who wrote under the pseudonym Anton Long, and what, if any, is the relationship between ‘Anton Long’ and a certain Mr David Myatt, former neo-nazi, former Islamist, translator of Ancient Greek literature, and now a reclusive mystic who has developed a mystical philosophy centred on virtues such as compassion, humility, and personal honour.

The first part deals with the O9A, with sections describing the nature and esotericism of the O9A as expounded by O9A practitioners and theorists, and thus provides an initiated – an informed, an insider – view of the O9A beyond the polemics and the propaganda of those modern self-described satanists who are or who were opposed to the O9A for whatever reason and from whatever personal motive.

The second part deals with the claim – the allegation – that ‘Anton Long’, author of most O9A material from the 1970s until around 2011, was Myatt; a claim made by opponents of the O9A, by some O9A supporters, and by sundry journalists and some academics who have studied modern Western esotericism and the ‘satanism’ propagated by Howard Stanton Levey, otherwise known as Anton LaVey.

The third part deals with the evidence which has been presented – including by some O9A supporters – which seems to contradict or cast doubt upon the claim that Myatt is or was the pseudonymous Anton Long.

The work should therefore allow the reader to form their own opinion of the O9A and of whether or not there is any merit to the claim that the pseudonymous Anton Long was Mr Myatt.

For ourselves, our opinion about the question of Myatt being Anton Long is divided. One of us finds the arguments in the Part Two essay David Myatt, The Septenary Anados, And The Quest For Lapis Philosophicus quite persuasive; the other two are inclined to agree with the conclusion of the essay The Peculiar Matter Of Mr Myatt And Mr Long, included in Part Three, that

“given the importance, the uniqueness, of Anton Long in creating and developing O9A Occult philosophy and praxises he remains – factually – something of a mystery to those associating themselves with the O9A movement and to those academics interested in the O9A, with assumptions and conjectures about his identity, and fallacious reasoning, having served to create and to perpetuate stories about him. Which mystery, which assumptions and conjectures, and which stories, are advantageous to an esoteric movement.”

The term ‘mysterium’ is used in accord with its classical Latin meaning and thus implies “a mystery”, “a secret”, qv. Cicero.

It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Contradict

Order of Nine Angles



It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Contradict

With the publication – within a month of each other – of two books dealing with the Order of Nine Angles {1} it was only to be expected that anonymous denigrators of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and of David Myatt would take to their keyboards (physical or virtual) to yet again send forth into cyberspace their personal opinions about the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) and/or about David Myatt. Especially given such statements as this from one of those books:

“There have been many rambling tirades regarding David Myatt lately. Many identify David Myatt with Anton Long (the ONA’s founder) despite the fact that he has denied this identification. Instead, some consider David Myatt to be an individual who moves from one ideology to another – a crazy man, praising Jihad and the supremacy of Islam after having praised Aryan supremacy and National Socialism, etcetera. From the perspective of Secuntra Nexion, we consider David Myatt to be an individual who embodies the archetype of the Magickian [Magus], the shape-shifter; an individual who has dedicated his life to a singular purpose, one which leads progressively to new liminal and threshold experiences; an individual who has experienced, in prima persona, myriad facets of life, and who has, as a result of his pathei-mathos, created invaluable works – works such as the Numinous Way, Reichsfolk, and countless texts of inspiration. Whether or not David Myatt is Anton Long remains irrelevant, as each individual will have to give this consideration in proportion to their own research and experience.” Corpus Secuntra, Telos . English edition: ISBN 978-1981879342 {2}

Most – if not all – of the anonymous denigrators of the O9A and of Myatt have three things in common.

First, they have no antinomian, heretical, publicly documented deeds under their real name. Thus, they have never, using their real name, publicly supported terrorism and thus been investigated by the security services of the country where they reside and feel secure. They have never, using their real name, been investigated by law enforcement for inciting someone to commit murder. They have never, using their real name, been investigated by law enforcement for running a gang of thieves. They have never, using their real name, incited political – revolutionary – violence and disorder. They have never, using their real name, harangued a crowd of hundreds of people opposed to their political views and in the process caused a riot. They have never, using their real name, been heretical – antinomian – enough to publicly deny the modern, the State-sanctioned, dogma of the so-called holocaust.

Second, they cannot answer questions about the esotericism of the O9A, having never bothered to study the entire O9A corpus from Naos, to Hostia, to Perusing The Seven Fold Way. Thus, they have little or no knowledge of such topics as to what terrestrial location is associated with Yusra, and whether seven or nine geographically separate physical nexions should be used to “invoke the Dark Gods” and thus presence in practical ways the Chaos of The Abyss on Earth.

Third, they are not erudite enough to have written and published translations of and commentaries on esoteric texts such as the Corpus Hermeticum. They lack the learning to read foundational philosophical, esoteric, alchemical, and ‘magickal’ texts in their original language; texts such as those by Plato, Aristotle, and Iamblichus; texts such as Azoth Sive Aureliae Occultae Philosophorum and De Vita Coelitus Comparanda…..

Yet such deficiencies do not stop them pontificating about and denigrating the O9A and Myatt even though Myatt himself has publicly documented antinomian, heretical, deeds to his name and has written and published translations of and commentaries on esoteric texts, and can read foundational philosophical, esoteric, alchemical, and ‘magickal’ texts in their original language, as well as having developed a modern pagan philosophy (the way of pathei-mathos) and also – if indeed he is or was ‘Anton Long’ of O9A fame – created a comprehensive esoteric philosophy and esoteric praxis which rivals if not surpasses the ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey) and the ‘Left Hand Path’ devised by Aquino and manifest in ‘Setianism’.

That the opponents and critics of the O9A and Myatt cannot bring themselves to recognize Myatt’s achievements is only to be expected, for such tardiness is as indicative as it is amusing.

Perhaps it is because

“in the matter of the Order of Nine Angles, it is disliked – even loathed – because of its opposition to the ‘Ayn Rand with trappings’ Magian ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey, its opposition to the foreign influenced (the non-Western) cult of Aquino’s ‘Setianism’, and of course because of the O9A’s antinomian, ‘heretical’, support of National Socialism, holocaust revisionism, and of Muslim Jihad.

In the matter of Mr Myatt, he is disliked – even hated – by the savants of the Magian status quo (which savants include followers of the ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey as well as anti-fascists) not only because of his alleged links to, and his alleged founding of, the Order of Nine Angles, but also because his experiential life is one of practical opposition to everything Magian, from his thirty years as a neo-nazi activist and as a “principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution,” to his decade as an active supporter of Muslim Jihad, to his Western, ineluctably pagan, philosophy of pathei-mathos, and his recent translations of Western texts about hermeticism which restore them to the Western, pagan, mystical tradition.” {3}

{1} The two books are the English version of Corpus Secuntra, Telos, published in December 2017 by Secuntra Nexion, and An Unfolding of Physis, published in January by “Beldam”, who describes himself as a “practitioner of the Sinister-Numinous Tradition.”

Secuntra is an Italian O9A nexion established over a decade ago which practices and which upholds both the “dangerous and extreme forms of Traditional Satanism” as promulgated by the O9A, and the modern heresies of National Socialism and Fascism.

{2} Here is the Italian version of the quotation from the Italian edition of Corpus Secuntra, Telos, ISBN 978-1545074497.

“Si è molto discusso della figura di David Myatt da molte parti in questi ultimi anni. Molti considerano David Myatt come essere Anton Long (ovvero il fondatore dell’ONA) anche se questi sino ad oggi ha sempre negato di esserlo, alcuni semplicemente un individuo che passa da un’ideologia ad un’altra, alcuni un pazzo che inneggia al Jihad ed alla supremazia dell’Islam dopo aver inneggiato alla supremazia ariana ed al Nazionalsocialismo, etc. Da parte nostra (Secuntra Nexion), consideriamo David Myatt come un individuo che incarna l’Archetipo del Mago, del Mutaforma. Un individuo che ha conferito alla propria vita uno scopo ed uno scopo che andasse lontano. Un individuo che ha sperimentato in prima persona le varies faccettature della vita ed una persona che ha creato come risultato del proprio pathei-mathos opere di valore come La Via Numinosa e Reichsfolk ed innumerevoli testi pieni di ispirazione. Che poi David Myatt sia o non sia Anton Long questo può essere considerato irrilevante e rimane una considerazione che ogni singola persona può fare per sé e conferire ad essa il giusto peso.”


Interviews, Journalists, And The Police

From The Archives

Interviews, Journalists, The Police, and Pathei-Mathos


Extract from the Editorial Preface:

The following autobiographical article by David Myatt was written in 2009 and revised in 2010. It was included as an Excursus in early (2009-2011) drafts of his autobiography Myngath, copies of which were circulated to a few friends, with the drafts briefly appearing on some internet blogs, to be replaced by the final and substantially revised version published in May 2013 which lacked this article.

The article provides Myatt’s side of the story in relation to the police, interviews, and journalists such as Nick Ryan who have written about Myatt in a propagandistic manner.

Four interesting things deserve mentioning in connection with the article. The first – and most curious – is that the journalist who, in 1974, “stitched Myatt up” by making allegations about animal sacrifice became ill shortly after his report was published in a local newspaper. He was diagnosed with a terminal disease, and died less than a year later, with the local rumour being that Anton Long’s then Leeds-based Temple of the Sun (an early O9A nexion) had undertaken The Death Ritual (qv. The ONA’s Black Book of Satan) and thus cursed that journalist […..]



Myatt: A Matter Of Honour

Remembering Mr Myatt


Given his age – three score years and more – then someday, and perhaps not that distant, Mr David Myatt, now a reclusive mystic, will most assuredly be gone from our mortal realm. So how should, how will, Myatt be remembered?

For his five-decade long Faustian peregrinations: neo-nazi activist and ideologue; monk; radical Muslim, and, finally, a philosopher of pathei-mathos? {1}

For his alleged founding of and involvement with the Order of Nine Angles, ending as described in the ‘last writings’ of Anton Long? {2}

For his Greek translations ranging from Homer, to Aeschylus, to Sophocles, to Sappho, {3} to the Corpus Hermeticum {4} and the Gospel of John? {5}

We present here three different and personal views.





For myself I choose his poetry. Or rather those ‘four forgotten poems’ and that compilation of his poems – titled Relict – which he himself compiled {1}{2}. For there is humanism, a numinosity, the ethos of our Western civilization, presenced in such semi-autobiographical poems as are collected there. As well as the quintessence of what, post-2012, became his mystical, his very personal, his decidedly Western and decidedly pagan, ‘philosophy of pathei-mathos’.

Thus if he is to be remembered it should, perhaps, be for such so very human, so very civilized, poems. For such poems are such an eloquent rebuke to those who have attempted – or who for private or for political reasons may well continue to attempt – to besmirch him.

Richard Stirling



Greek Translations

We choose his Greek translations, and in particular his translations of and his commentaries on tracts from the ancient Corpus Hermeticum collected together in one book: Corpus Hermeticum: Eight Tractates. 2017. ISBN-13: 978-1976452369.

For nearly two decades, from the early 1990s, his translations of Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Sappho, were used by several universities around the world as part of their undergraduate courses in Classics or in the Humanities. {1} One American High School even staged a performance of his Antigone.

Then some rabid Myatt-hater, around 2006, and as part of his anti-Myatt crusade took it upon himself to contact – by e-mail or by letter – all the institutions of higher learning that he could find that used Myatt’s translations. He informed them of Myatt’s neo-nazi past, made accusations regarding involvement with Satanism, and cited Myatt’s then support for the Taliban and al-Qaida. Most institutions silently dropped Myatt from their curriculum. Thus, one more triumph – unfortunately – for the status quo: for the Magian and their allies. But they have now had their day; the writing is on the wall and it reads Δίκα δὲ τοῖς μὲν παθοῦσιν μαθεῖν ἐπιρρέπει.

{1} Among those who used his translations were Professor Dusan Pajin; Professor Michael Lienesch; Sogang University, Korea; The University of Reading, England; Rio Hondo College; and Suffolk University in the USA.


Lapis Philosophicus

It is my view that Myatt – under the nom-de-plume Anton Long – is one of the most innovative of modern occultists and one of the few to actually attain (rather than to delusionally award themselves) the grade of Magus.

Remembered because for over four decades he has been on an Occult quest – an anados – involving practical experience of both the sinister and the numinous and has, in recent years, found Lapis Philosophicus as explained in the Living The Final Apprehension section of the text Myatt, The Septenary Anados, And The Quest For Lapis Philosophicus {1}.

Thus, the practical, hard, testing, elitist, Seven Fold Way – to wisdom – that he has created {2} is and should be his legacy.

Concerning Leaving The O9A

Order of Nine Angles


On Leaving The O9A


From the Introduction:


Given that someone else has – via the internet of course – recently announced that they are “leaving” the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) because they are upset about what some ONA persons have written and because they do not agree with “this” or with “that”, we reproduce below an apposite article from 2013 about such “leaving”.

Apropos of which, the common themes behind those who publicly announce their “leaving” – and then go to be critical of and/or make accusations about the ONA – are one or more or all of the following:
(i) they have failed to disentangle the exoteric (the outer) from the esoteric (the inner), and thus have become lost in or confused by our Labyrinthos Mythologicus 1 ;
(ii) they have failed to understand just what the ONA is, and thus why there is, esoterically, no “joining” and no “leaving” some “entity” designated by the term “Order of Nine Angles”;
(iii) their lack of scholarly esoteric knowledge evident in their inability to write a scholarly critique of items in a compilation such as The Esoteric Hermeticism Of The Order Of Nine Angles  2 .

Doubtless this recent announcement about “leaving” – and the critical comments and accusations made about the ONA – will be seized upon by latter-day satanists, and unscholarly others, as “proof” that the ONA is “dead” and/or as confirmation of their own shallow, exoteric, personal opinion about the ONA.

But, as the article below states, such a “leaving” – en-wrapped in critical comments – has happened many times over the past two decades. And it has made no difference, and it cannot make any difference, to the esoteric philosophy 3 and the praxises 4 that presence (which are) the Order of Nine Angles. That they – and others – do not seem to understand this is most amusing, and of course indicative.
