A Contrast Of Lives

odal3

Editorial Note: The following extract is from the highly controversial Understanding Neo-völkisch Satanism, which article was first published on the TWS Nexion blog.

The extract provides succinct descriptions of the ‘modern satanism’ manufactured by Howard Stanton Levey (better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey) and the ‘traditional Satanism’ of the Order of Nine Angles, and – most interesting of all – also provides an account of the contrast between the life of Levey and the life of the person often alleged to be behind the pseudonym Anton Long, the founder of the O9A and author of most of its texts.

For those interested, the allegation regarding who is behind the pseudonym Anton Long is considered in detail in the 87 page book titled A Modern Mysterium, for which see the article at https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/a-modern-mysterium-2/

°°°°°°°°°

The Satanism Of Levey

The 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 {5}.

This type of Satanism promotes “the total satisfaction of the ego” {6} and obeying the law of the land {7}.

The Satanism Of Anton Long

The Satanism of Anton Long is based on the scholarly premise that – as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan – (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 – means to exeatic personal experiences which shape and evolve an individual’s character and understanding. {8}{9}.

A Contrast Of Lives

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, for one would expect their respective types of Satanism to be reflected in their own 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 with 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.

The O9A And AWD

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

Editorial Note: We republish here an article by the TWS Nexion which in our view provides an excellent summary of not only the media coverage of the link between the O9A and AWD but also of the role of National-Socialism in respect of the O9A.

°°°°°°°

The O9A And AWD – A Summary

Recent Media stories about the American based National Socialist group AtomWaffen Division (AWD) – implicated in five murders between May 2017 to January 2018 – with evidence emerging that several members of that group are associated with the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has led not only to mention of the O9A in the Media but also to an upsurge of interest in the O9A itself.

In addition there has been an often hostile reaction among many self-described “neo-nazis” to the alleged presence of “satanists” and to the O9A in the modern NS movement, a reaction based almost entirely on a lack of knowledge both of the satanism promulgated by the O9A and of the O9A itself, leading to such self-described “neo-nazis” basically repeating Media propaganda.

In this article we provide a summary of “the story so far” and also outline – from our perspective – the nature of the satanism promulgated by the O9A and the nature of the O9A itself, contra Media propaganda.

Reportage

From all the reportage of the AWD and the O9A over the past few months we have selected the three that have not only generated the most interest but also been quoted or mentioned or paraphrased in many subsequent reports.

§ The most balanced (unbiased) and factual item was by the US-based, and anti-fascist, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), published on their Hatewatch blog on February 22, 2018 under the headline Atomwaffen and the SIEGE parallax: how one neo-Nazi’s life’s work is fueling a younger generation.

In the long report, the O9A merited only a few paragraphs:

“In online neo-Nazi circles, satanic texts are providing the most fodder for debate. Many are unsure and others angry about what Atomwaffen now represents. Two of the three texts in question are The Devil’s Notebook by Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, and Hostia: Secret Teachings of the Order of Nine Angles (O9A), a three-volume collection of manuscripts penned by O9A members. They comprise codices of O9A’s beliefs and practices.

Decades ago, the O9A allegedly came under the control of infamous British neo-Nazi David Myatt, who converted to radical Islam, but renounced his conversion eight years later and returned to esoteric spirituality. The group holds an important position in the niche, international nexus of occult, esoteric, and/or satanic neo-Nazi groups.

The third book is Iron Gates, written by a member of the U.S.-based Tempel ov Blood, a sub-sect of O9A describing itself as a hybrid between a traditional satanic coven and a (religious) militant order.”

The information is accurate, and also balanced in that the larger context – for example, the book Siege by James Mason – is allotted more space than the O9A with the SPLC correctly prefixing the rumour associating Myatt with the O9A with “allegedly.”

§ The second item was a two-part article on the ProPublica on-line news-site by Ali Winston and Jake Hanrahan, with the first part published on January 26, and the second part on February 23. The articles concentrated, newspaper-fashion, on the deeds and views of individuals, with the alleged link between AWD and the O9A not mentioned.

However, one of the authors – Hanrahan – subsequently mentioned the O9A in connection with AWD via the Twitter social media platform, writing that the “O9A is a 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).”

§ The third item, by Kelly Weill, was published on The Daily Beast, an on-line American news and opinion outlet, on March 22, 2018 under the headline Satanism Drama Is Tearing Apart the Murderous Neo-Nazi Group Atomwaffen.

The article was devoted to the O9A and to the reaction of some self-described neo-nazis and purported AWD members to the news of the association between the O9A and AWD. She wrote:

“Atomwaffen is an extremist group that received national attention after being implicated in five murders from May 2017 to January 2018. But even before the most recent slaying, Atomwaffen was under fire from others on the far right who claimed the group was actually a mouthpiece for the Order of Nine Angles, a satanic group that encourages members to infiltrate extremist political movements, whose members might be susceptible to conversion.

It doesn’t help that, until recently, Atomwaffen pushed the satanic group’s literature on one of its websites.

The satanist group requires members to spend six months either hitchhiking, working as a burglar, working as a police officer, or infiltrating an extremist political group—a group like Atomwaffen.”

In contrast to the more factual SPLC report, and academic studies {1}{2}{3}, the O9A is described in the Weill article in typical journalistic-style – weasel-words, derogatory, no sources – as “a fringe occultist group”.

In addition, the author blandly repeated the canard that O9A members are “called Noctulians” thus revealing a lack of knowledge about the O9A. Basic research would have revealed that the term Noctulian refers to a pre-O9A Fenland/Cantabrigian pagan tradition {4}.

The Satanism Of The O9A

As quoted in our compilation titled The Order of Nine Angles And National Socialism,

“The O9A understand the term satan as referring to some human being or beings who ‘diabolically’ plot or who scheme against or who are ‘diabolically’ opposed to those who consider themselves as ‘chosen’ by their monotheistic God.” {5}

Therefore, according to the O9A, a satanist is someone who is heretically opposed to those who believe they are God’s “chosen people,” with such opposition to such people (and their ideas) also of course being a central tenet of both German National Socialism and post-WWII manifestations of National Socialism. Thus it is indicative and amusing that so many self-described “neo-nazis” who pontificate about the O9A do not appreciate or just do not know about this link between the O9A and National Socialism.

O9A satanism is therefore the opposite of – contradictory to – (i) the accepted Media, Nazarene-derived, version of ‘satanism’, and to (ii) the so-called ‘satanism’ propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (aka Anton LaVey) which is basically egoistic materialism with ‘satan’ as a symbol of selfish indulgence.

Furthermore,

“The Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) is a sinisterly-numinous mystic tradition: it is not now and never was either strictly satanist or strictly Left Hand Path, but uses ‘satanism’ and the LHP as ‘causal forms’; that is, as techniques/experiences/ordeals/challenges (amoral and otherwise) in a decades-long personal anados (quest) to engender in the initiate both esoteric, and exoteric, pathei mathos, and which pathei mathos is the beginning of wisdom.

The extreme type of ‘satanism’ advocated by the O9A is – for O9A initiates – only one part of the ‘sinister’ aspect of the sinisterly-numinous tradition: a necessary and novitiate pathei-mathos, a modern ‘rite of passage’ […] Being O9A – belonging to the O9A – means both (a) using O9A esoteric philosophy, and one or more of its praxises, as guides to achieve that personal enantiodromia, and (b) accepting and living according to the O9A logos, since that logos is the unique perceiveration which differentiates the O9A from other occult groups past and present, and which logos presences the essence, the ethos, of the O9A […]

The O9A logos is manifest exoterically in the O9A code of kindred honour. For that code embodies – as living by that code can cultivate in the individual – both a pagan understanding/gnosis and the necessary O9A character.” {6}

The Principle Of The Authority Of Individual Judgment

We – identifying as O9A and as an independent nexion applying the esoteric philosophy of the O9A including its code of kindred honour – interpret that philosophy as anti-Magian in essence and pro-NationalSocialist and fascist in exoteric practice and as required by the O9A’s Sinister Dialectic.

Our view – as supporters of our Western culture – is that a resurgent National Socialism, or a resurgent fascism, or something politically similar, embodies what is necessary to bring down the Old Order from whose ruins a New Order will emerge.

However, others identifying with or associating themselves with the O9A do not share this interpretation. Some interpret that esoteric philosophy as anarchistic; others as nihilistic; others as elitist in a cultured and aristocratic way.

As noted in the text Aristocracy, Anarchy, or Nihilism? The Continuing Internal O9A Debate,

“One of the many interesting things about the Order of Nine Angles is the diversity of opinion and interpretation among those who associate themselves with the O9A or who follow or who are inspired by the esoteric philosophy of Anton Long […]

Such a diversity of opinion and interpretation of matters O9A is natural and necessary [for] the O9A, from its beginnings, has – via its praxises and its principle of individual judgement – encouraged every O9A person, nexion, group, or cell, to develop their own interpretation of everything O9A.” {7}

Notes

{1} “The ONA has produced more material on both the practical and theoretical aspects of magic, as well as more ideological texts on Satanism and the Left-Hand Path in general, than larger groups such as the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set has produced in combination [which] makes the ONA an important player in the theoretical discussion of what the Left-Hand Path and Satanism is and should be according to the practitioners.” Jacob C. Senholt, The Sinister Tradition, International conference, Satanism in the Modern World, Trondheim, 19-20th of November, 2009

{2} The ONA represent “a dangerous and extreme form of Satanism.” Faxneld, Per. Post-Satanism, Left-Hand Paths, and Beyond: Visiting the Margins. The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity. Oxford University Press, 2013. p.207

{3} In 2013 Professor Monette estimated that there were “over two thousand ONA associates” – Mysticism in the 21st Century. Sirius Academic Press, 2013. p.89 – with Professor Introvigne writing – Satanism: A Social History. Leiden and Boston: Brill, 2017. p. 359 – that if Monette’s estimate was correct, then the ONA is “the largest Satanist organization in the world.”

{4} See, for example, the 2013 O9A text Authority, Learning, and Culture, In The Sinister Tradition Of The Order of Nine Angles from which this is a quote:

“The O9A, as it now is and as it has been during the past four decades, is the accumulated occult pathei-mathos of Anton Long and of those whose ancient pagan, hermetic, and satanic, traditions (Camlad, Noctulians, Temple of the Sun) he inherited and/or personally studied and learned from […]

A lot of the ancestral pathei-mathos Anton Long inherited he expressed in the five fictional stories that form the Deofel Quintet. For instance, both The Giving and Breaking The Silence Down express something of the ancient Rounwytha tradition. The Falcifer story expresses elements of the Temple of the Sun tradition; while The Greyling Owl relates some aspects of the Fenland/Cantabrigian Noctulian tradition. In the novel The Temple of Satan all three traditions make an appearance.”

It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Contradict

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

°°°°°°°°°

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}

“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.”

Is The O9A Satanist?

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

°°°°°°°

Is The O9A Satanist?

For quite some time various self-described ‘satanists’ have questioned whether or not the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) is a satanist group.

Some are of the opinion that it is but only in a limited way, trumpeting as they do some fairly recent (post-2011) O9A texts which state among other things that satanism, for the O9A, is just a “necessary novitiate pathei-mathos”, a practical experience which the initiate learns from and then moves on from.

Many other self-described ‘satanists’, however, are and have been of the opinion that the O9A is not satanist, basing their opinion as they do on how satanism was described by Howard Stanton Levey (the Yahodi; aka Anton LaVey) and then by his followers and admirers. Which Levey-type satanism is basically labelling as satanism what is egoistic, masculous, plebeian, and mundane, where everything supernatural and occult is seen as just useful psychodrama and/or as theatrical props designed to bolster the egoism, the pretensions, of each and every self-declared ‘satanist’ who arrogantly believe they have or they can develop the ability to master, to control, everything (supernatural and otherwise) and anyone. In addition, Levey-type satanism – like the much-vaunted occultism of both Crowley and Aquino – is awash with Hebraism; with ‘demons’ and entities from medieval Hebraic grimoires; with the Hebrew kabbalah, and of course with myths and legends about a Hebraic Satan.

A Novitiate Pathei Mathos

In respect of the claim that satanism – a satanism described for example in the O9A text The Black Book of Satan, first published in 1983, and as described by Anton Long in texts such as Toward Understanding Satanism – is just a novitiate pathei-mathos, one has to bear in mind the O9A’s Labyrinthos Mythologicus and thus the fact that their Labyrinthos Mythologicus is:

“designed to test and confuse – to perplex – novices, aspirant candidates, and those curious about the O9A. Designed to challenge their assumptions about the O9A and about satanism, sorcery, and esotericism in general. To encourage them to arrive at their own conclusions about – to develop the intuition, the Occult skills, to acquire the pathei-mathos, to discover – what the ONA is, and is not.”

Thus, in regard to satanism, readers will find many ONA texts promoting satanism and stating that satanism is the essence of the ONA, while they will also find some other texts stating that satanism is just “a causal form”, just a noviciate pathei-mathos.

Which certainly has confused many of those – such as self-described Levey-inspired satanists – who have opined about the Order of Nine Angles, although had they the nous to study the O9A corpus in detail they would have understood that what the O9A mean by satanism is quite different – radically different – from what Levey and his followers described, and thus from what most self-described modern satanists accept, as ‘satanism’.

O9A Satanism

To appreciate what the O9A mean by Satanism is to understand why one of the five fundamental principles (traditions) of the Order of Nine Angles is “the way of defiance of and practical opposition to Magian abstractions.” {1}

The O9A in their Glossary of ONA Terms (v. 3.07) state that:

“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 essence of what we term the Magian ethos is inherent in Judaism, in Nasrany, and in Islam. To be pedantic, we use the term Magian in preference to the more commonly used term Semitic to describe the ethos underlying these three major, and conventional, religions, since the term Semitic is, in our view, not strictly philologically correct to describe such religions.”

Furthermore, the O9A have their own understanding of Satan, described in their text The Geryne of Satan {2} which states that “as originally used and meant, the term satan refers to some human being or beings who ‘diabolically’ plot or who scheme against or who are ‘diabolically’ opposed to those who consider themselves as ‘chosen’ by their monotheistic God.”

Since those who “consider themselves as ‘chosen’ by their monotheistic God” are the Jews it follows that the O9A consider the archetype of Satan to be the archetype of opposition to Jews, to Jewish influence, and of course opposition to monotheistic and essentially patriarchal religions such as Judaism, Nasrany, and Islam. Which naturally explains why the O9A has its code of kindred honour, why it has always supported National Socialism both in theory and, via Insight Roles, in practice; why they support holocaust revisionism; why they have their Vindex mythos {3}, and why their Mass of Heresy {4} includes the following declaration:

“Adolf Hitler was sent by our gods
To guide us to greatness.
We believe in the inequality of races
And in the right of the Aryan to live
According to the laws of the folk.
We acknowledge that the story of the Jewish ‘holocaust’
Is a lie to keep our race in chains
And express our desire to see the truth revealed.
We believe in justice for our oppressed comrades
And seek an end to the world-wide
Persecution of National-Socialists.”

It is no surprise, therefore, that the O9A has published texts such as The Error of Egoism: Magian Occultism, Satanic Subversion, and The O9A, included as that text is in the seventh edition (2015) of their Definitive Guide To The Order of Nine Angles: Theory and Praxises. {5}

In addition, the O9A with its Rounwytha tradition, its Sapphic nexions, its code of kindred honour, is disdainful of and in ‘satanic’ opposition to the Magian patriarchal, masculous, ethos, which still dominates the Western world.

The Sinister-Numinous Tradition

In recent years – post-2011 and following the retirement of Anton Long from active involvement with the Order of Nine Angles – various O9A texts have been released which detail (i) the aural traditions regarding Internal Adept and the transition to and beyond The Abyss on the Seven Fold Way {6}, and (ii) the hermetic and pagan (Greco-Roman, and Western) antecedents of the Seven Fold Way and of O9A esoteric philosophy {7}.

In essence, the Seven Fold Way of the O9A is – to use terms adopted by Myatt in his Vindex mythos – profoundly Faustian, Promethean, Thorian. That is, embodying the ethos of the West sans any Hebraic influence. But it is also futuristic, or rather Aeonic, given who and what the individuals who go beyond The Abyss are and do, living beyond the Magian, the patriarchal, abstractions of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ just as the mythical Satan did and just as all pagan Magisters – both male and female – have always done.

Thus, as someone relatively recently wrote:

“the O9A is indeed satanic since every O9A person, whatever O9A way they follow or espouse, is a presencing of those forces that would, if left unchecked, lead us in practical ways to that individual apprehension and that way of living which are beyond good and evil, beyond the light and the dark.” {8}

Conclusion

Given their historical understanding of satan – and thence their definition of the term satanism – it is my opinion that the O9A, with their holocaust denial, with their adversity to the Magian ethos, with their Vindex mythos, with their exeatic (Faustian) Seven Fold Way, and with their championing of National Socialism, are most certainly a satanist group.

In addition, O9A satanism – based as it also is on the principle of kindred honour (another of their five core principles) – also debunks, and is opposed to, the egoistic, the materialistic, so-called ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey, the charlatan, indebted as his ‘satanism’ is to Hebraism and manifesting as it does the Magian patriarchal ethos.

Myatt, The Septenary Anados, And The Quest For Lapis Philosophicus

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

°°°°°°°

The life of David Myatt is discussed in relation to the occult group the Order of Nine Angles (O9A/ONA), with particular reference to (i) the O9A’s hermetic ‘seven fold way,’ which is a decades-long personal quest for wisdom, and (ii) the O9A concepts of ‘the sinisterly-numinous’ and ‘aeonics’. It will be argued that Myatt’s strange, varied, and documented life is consistent with someone following that ‘seven fold way’; that Myatt – under the nom-de-plume Anton Long – is one of the most innovative of modern occultists and one of the few to attain the grade of Magus; and that the O9A itself has been consistently mis-understood by outsiders.

Re-discovering Western Paganism

Whenever the term ‘western paganism’ is written or heard, in our contemporary societies, there is tendency for many readers or listeners to conjure up either images of ancient ‘superstitious barbarians’ offering sacrifices to various gods such as Odin, or images of modern devotees – of what has been termed ‘contemporary paganism’ and ‘neopaganism’ – in robes conducting or attending romanticized rituals and ceremonies such as those now associated with the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.

In this essay, however, in referring to Western paganism we are referring to a particular and spiritual ethos – to a distinguishing character, or nature, or ‘spirit’ – germane to European lands and thus to ‘the West’, where by ‘spiritual’ is meant concerning what is considered to be, intuitively or otherwise, numinous, and/or concerning those forces or powers which are believed to be, or which may, determine our fate, wyrd, destiny and thus which may bring good fortune or misfortune to us, our family, and to our communities.

Hence, when writing about ‘the West’ we are not writing about the nations of the modern West and the life-styles and politics evident in such modern nations as the United States and Britain. What is meant is the culture and the civilization of and associated with European lands (and with what are now our former colonies or émigré lands) embodied and manifest as that culture and civilization was and is in the paganism of classical Greece and Rome; in the ritual practices and beliefs of North European lands such as Scandinavia and ancient Britain; in Greco-Roman art; in classical – and European folk – music; in the philosophy of the likes of Aristotle; in allegories such as those of Faust and myths such as King Arthur, Wotan, and the Valkyries; in the Greco-Roman mysticism of the Corpus Hermeticum, and in modern science and technology.

That is, we are writing about a particular culture of a particular people; of indigenous Europeans, among whose descendants are people of such lands as are now named Greece, Italy, Britain, Germany, Spain, France, Scandinavia, Poland, Russia, etcetera.

Part of this ancestral Western, this ancestral European, culture is a particular and spiritual ethos, and one which the term Western paganism correctly describes, with this particular paganism having its roots in Ancient Greece and Rome and thus being different, in ethos and in practise, from what is currently known concerning, for example, such religious practices and beliefs as that of ancient Germanic tribes. This ‘Greco-Roman’ paganism is the paganism of Homer, Hesiod, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Aristotle, Seneca, and Cicero; a paganism that is pragmatically spiritual whose foundation is the rationalization that certain deeds were wise and certain other deeds unwise, with such unwise deeds – such hubris, ὕβρις – upsetting that natural balance of the Cosmos (κόσμος) and thus liable (according to ancestral tradition) to cause misfortune. Thus did Sophocles express a truth of this tradition when he wrote that “hubris is the genesis of tyrants” since tyrants invariably bring misfortune upon the people and, eventually, upon themselves and – quite often – on their descendants. In addition, and importantly, elegance, the beautiful (τὸ καλόν) as well as excellence (arête, ἀρετή) and nobility (τὸ ἀγαθόν) were all associated with those who did what was considered wise and balanced (μέσος, in Aristotle).

This is the ethos, the pragmatic spirituality, and the notion of balance, harmony, elegance, and of beauty, which infuses the culture and the civilization of Ancient Greece and Rome, and which culture so enthused those Europeans – artists, scholars, educators, potentates, and others – who from the 14th century on brought about the Renaissance and which Renaissance, which re-discovery of the culture of ancient Greece and Rome, gave birth to and infused our Western ‘Faustian’ civilization.

A Pagan Renaissance

This Renaissance, however, did not in any significant way include a practical return to classical paganism. Instead of giving rise to a new, an evolved, pagan ethos – and thus dispensing with the notion of anthropomorphic deities interfering in the lives of human beings – it resulted in only minor changes to the governing religious ethos manifest as that was in Christianity with its quite un-classical, rather stark, notions of Hell-Fire, Damnation, Sin, and Prudery. In other words, the governing spirituality continued to be Hebraic, derived from the Old Testament as amended by the ‘new covenant’ of Jesus of Nazareth.

While laudable, the attempt in recent times by some Europeans to rediscover the pagan ethos of their ancestors – exemplified in certain (but not all) neopagan groups and weltanschauungen – and thus distance themselves from Hebraic spirituality, is not and never can be, in our view, effective in reconnecting us to the ethos of the West for two reasons. First, because such attempts (at least so far) do not exemplify, do not manifest, the spiritual ethos of the West, founded as that is on the culture and spirituality of ancient Greece and Rome. Second, because they generally do not take into account how the ethos of the West has itself been distorted by a Hebraicism that is not only spiritual but is now, and has been for over a century, cultural.

This cultural Hebraicism is a mode of thinking and action in which Hebrews – ancient and modern – and their beliefs, and those of their followers and disciples, are taken as the type, the moral ideal, to be aspired to and lauded. In the case of ancient Hebrews and their beliefs, the type, the ideal is evident in the Bible (both Old and New Testaments), and in latter-day interpretations of the Bible. In the case of modern Hebrews and their disciples, the type, the ideal, derives from (a) the dogma of ‘equality of races’ – ultimately derived from Marxism, sociology, and what has been termed ‘social anthropology’, with the belief being that all ethnicities have the same abilities, intelligence, potential, and human character – and from (b) the religious-like remembrance of and compulsory teaching regarding the Shoah, together with a hypocritical championing of ethnic awareness and ancestral traditions for all ethnicities except native European (‘White’) peoples, which ethnic awareness of, and its promotion among, native European peoples is considered ‘hatred’, ‘racist’, ‘extremist’ and is increasing censored and outlawed in the lands of the West with the Hebraic reasoning being that such ethnic awareness of, and its promotion among, native European peoples gave rise to colonialism, to fascism and National Socialism and thus to the Shoah – which must “never be forgotten” – with no Western country ever allowed to again make ancestral European beliefs, and the Western ethos, the raison d’être of a nation-State.

In respect of rediscovering the pagan spirituality of the West a fundamental problem has been a lack of knowledge among those interested in what, exactly, that spirituality is. A problem exacerbated by pre-existing translations of some of the ancient works knowledge of which is necessary in order to understand that spirituality. Works such as the Oedipus Tyrannus and the Antigone by Sophocles, the Agamemnon by Aeschylus, and the mystical texts of the Corpus Hermeticism.

Which problem of translation is why, for example, the Antigone of Sophocles has become to be regarded (by all but a handful of scholars) as some kind of ancient morality tale or as just a drama about a conflict between two strong and different characters, Antigone and Creon; why Oedipus Tyrannus is regarded (by all but a handful of scholars) as a morality tale about “incest”, and why the texts of the Corpus Hermeticism are regarded as imbued with a Christian-like mysticism and as having been influenced by both the Old and New Testaments.

Yet properly understood in the necessary cultural context, the Antigone, as one translator noted in the Introduction to his translation,

“deals with the relation between mortals and gods. The work is an exploration and explanation of the workings of the cosmos, and the answers given express the distinctive ancient Greek ‘outlook’ or ethos. This ethos is pagan, and its essence may be said to be that there are limits to human behaviour; that some conduct is wise, some conduct is unwise. Unwise conduct invites retribution by the gods: it can and often does result in personal misfortune, in bad luck.” {1}

Ditto in respect of the Oedipus Tyrannus, and the Agamemnon of Aeschylus. Regarding the Corpus Hermeticism, as we have previously mentioned, certain new translations restore

“these texts to the Western pagan tradition and make them relevant to our times when Western culture and our classical, Greco-Roman, and pagan heritage is increasingly subsumed in schools and elsewhere by other, non-Western, cultures and religions, with it now being politically incorrect to point out that Western culture with its Greco-Roman pagan heritage has profoundly changed the world for the better and is arguably superior to all other cultures past and present.” {2}

That is, translations of important classical texts are now available which, when studied together, enable us to appreciate and understand the classical, pagan, ethos and thence the ethos of the West itself. {3}

Which understanding might – probably should – lead us, or someone, to develop a new, an evolved, pagan weltanschauung which does not involve anthropomorphic deities but instead is based on a new ontology regarding our relation, as sentient beings, to Being, to the Cosmos, rather than to ‘God’ or to some ‘gods’. Something perhaps prefigured in Greek texts such as these with their reasoned, pragmatic, and often quite warrior-like, spirituality:

The Muse shall tell of the many adventures of that man of the many stratagems
Who, after the pillage of that hallowed citadel at Troy,
Saw the towns of many a people and experienced their ways:
He whose vigour, at sea, was weakened by many afflictions
As he strove to win life for himself and return his comrades to their homes.
But not even he, for all this yearning, could save those comrades
For they were destroyed by their own immature foolishness
Having devoured the cattle of Helios, that son of Hyperion,
Who plucked from them the day of their returning. {4}

°°°°°

You should listen to [the goddess] Fairness and not oblige Hubris
Since Hubris harms unfortunate mortals while even the more fortunate
Are not equal to carrying that heavy a burden, meeting as they do with Mischief.
The best path to take is the opposite one: that of honour
For, in the end, Fairness is above Hubris
Which is something the young come to learn from adversity. {5}

°°°°°

This person, whom I praise, never ceased to believe that the gods delight in respectful deeds just as much as in consecrated temples, and, when blessed with success, he was never prideful but rather gave thanks to the gods. He also made more offerings to them when he was confident than supplications when he felt hesitant, and, in
appearance, it was his habit to be cheerful when doubtful and mild-mannered when successful. {6}

°°°°°

Clytaemnestra:

Because of these grievous things, no one should invoke a fatal curse upon
Nor turn their wroth toward, Helen
As if she was some man-killer who alone destroyed
The lives of those many Danaan men
By having wrought such a festering wound […]

The wife of this corpse presents herself here
As that most ancient fierce Avenger.
It is Atreus, he is of that cruel feast,
Who, in payment for that, has added to his young victims
This adult one […]

But do not suppose that his killing was ignoble
For did he not by his cunning set Misfortune upon this family? {7}

°°°°°

Creon:

So even then you dared to violate these laws?

Antigone:

It was not Zeus who proclaimed them to me,
Nor did she who dwells with the gods below – the goddess, Judgement –
Lay down for us mortals such laws as those.
Neither did I suppose that your edicts
Had so much strength that you, who die,
Could out-run the unwritten and unchanging
Customs of the gods: for the life of these things
Is not only of yesterday or today, but eternal,
No one remembering their birth. {8}

All of which explains why we love to also quote what a certain English poet wrote in 1873 CE: “the separation between the Greeks and us is due principally to the Hebraistic culture we receive in childhood.” All those tall tales from the Bible about various Hebrew folk…

It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Chastise

Order of Nine Angles

O9A

It Can Sometimes Be Informative To Chastise

It can sometimes – in a dialectical sort of way {1} – be informative for our readers, as well as mildly amusing for us, to polemically {2} chastise when someone publicly makes statements about the O9A, and about themselves, which reveal (a) just how silly and ill-informed that ‘someone’ is, and (b) just how they, in their silliness and ignorance, contribute albeit unwittingly to the O9A mythos and thus to its Labyrinthos Mythologicus {3).

Exhibit 1.

In the case under consideration, a silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ wrote: “I am proud of my religion, the Left Hand Path celebrates liberty, life and responsibility.”

In that one short sentence, there are two falsities, indicative of ignorance. First falsity is that the Left Hand Path (LHP) – more correctly, the Western, Occult, Left Hand Path – is a religion; second, that it celebrates some causal (some supra-personal, and social and/or political) abstraction denoted by the term ‘liberty’.

Correctly understood, through a scholarly perusal of Western esotericism, the LHP means: (a) antinomianism, that is (i) the rejection of the morality, and the zeitgeist, of contemporaneous society or societies, and (ii) a rejection of the laws established and enforced by others and in particular by supra-personal entities such as governments; and (b) rejection of religion and of the religious attitude, with the essential attributes of both religion and of the religious attitude being “belief in and (often uncritical) obedience to” what someone or some entity has codified, and “acceptance of being part of” some hierarchical group, community, or organization.

This understanding leads and has led to various modern LHP practices, from those redolent of anarchy and nihilism to those ‘extreme practices’ such as exemplified by the Order of Nine Angles who have defined ‘their’ LHP as a personal Occult way where:

“there is nothing that is not permitted; nothing that is forbidden or restricted. That is, the LHP means the individual takes sole responsibility for their actions and their quest. This makes the LHP both difficult and dangerous – its methods can be used as an excuse for anti-social behaviour as they can be used to aid the fetishes and weaknesses of some individuals as well as lead some into forbidden and illegal acts. However, the genuine Initiate of the LHP is undertaking a quest, and as such is seeking something: that is, there is a dynamic, an imperative about their actions as well as the conscious understanding and appreciation that all such actions are only part of that quest; they are not the quest itself. This arises because the LHP Initiate is seeking mastery and self-knowledge – these being implicit in such an Initiation. Accordingly, the LHP Initiate sees methods as merely methods; experience as merely experience. Both are used, and then discarded.

Because of this the LHP is by its nature ruthless – the strong of character win through, the weak go under. There are no ‘safety nets’ of any kind on the LHP […] The LHP breeds self-achievement and self-excellence, or it destroys.” {4}

In other words, the essence of the O9A LHP is practical, esoteric and exoteric, pathei-mathos {5}.

Exhibit 2.

In the case under consideration, a silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ wrote: “I earned the hatred of the ONA…my lone LHP voice did significant damage to the ONA.”

In that one short sentence, there are two falsities, indicative – in this case – both of ignorance and self-aggrandizement.

a) First falsity. Since the Order of Nine Angles, correctly understood (by means of detailed study of the entire O9A corpus over many months) is an esoteric philosophy presenced in three Occult praxises – and thus rather akin to “a movement, a subculture or perhaps metaculture that its adherents choose to embody or identify with” {6} – then “it” cannot “hate” anybody, no more than Nietzsche’s philosophy can “hate” a person.

b) Second falsity. Since the Order of Nine Angles is an esoteric philosophy presenced in three Occult praxises, an internet-based “voice” or internet-based “voices” cannot do any damage to such a philosophy, significant or otherwise, especially given that such a “voice” or “voices” is or are unscholarly and has not, or have not, presented any formalized philosophical, and mainstream published, written rebuttal of that philosophy in terms of its ontology, epistemology, and theory of ethics.

It seems to have escaped the notice of this particular silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ – and others of that ilk – that (a) a rant or rants, via the internet, about the ONA, (b) making unsubstantiated allegations about the ONA, and (c) spreading rumours about the ONA, do not amount to a philosophical rebuttal of ONA ontology, epistemology, and ethics; and as such are only and will only ever be taken seriously by such silly and ill-informed persons and others of their (mostly internet-bound) ilk.

Which exposure of such falsities will, in all probability, not prevent this particular silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ – and others of that ilk – from continuing to propagate such falsities about the ONA in the future. For no doubt their, apparently necessary, self-belief that their “voices” can make a difference will motive them to continue making unsubstantiated allegations and continue spreading rumours, strengthened as that self-belief no doubt has been, is and will be by what is, for them, an apparently convincing delusion that they possess a detailed, esoteric, and philosophical, knowledge of the ONA.

Exhibit 3.

In the case under consideration, a silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ wrote: “fanatics such as David Myatt (Order of Nine Angles) promote murder in the name of religion.”

In that one short sentence, there are three falsities, indicative – in this case – of that someone giving voice to the zeitgeist of contemporaneous Western society. Or, in less abstruse terms, parroting Magian propaganda {7} about a particular person in some apparent attempt to discredit and demean him.

a) First falsity. Since Mr Myatt, over seven years ago now, (i) has publicly distanced himself (theoretically and practically) from all types of extremism, (ii) was and is engaged only in academic pursuits, such as translations, (iii) lives and has lived as a recluse, and (iv) has developed a personal philosophy of life based on virtues such as empathy, humility, and compassion, he is most certainly not a ‘fanatic’.

b) Second falsity. Since neither the silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ nor anyone else has provided probative evidence that Mr Myatt is or was connected to the Order of Nine Angles, associating him with the ONA amounts to using ‘weasel words’ in order to create a misleading, propagandistic, impression of Mr Myatt.

b) Third falsity. Since the silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ used the present tense (promote) and does not provide any details as to where and when this current promotion of murder – in the name of religion or otherwise – occurred, then the accusation is at best a misleading, propagandistic, one, and at worst is a malicious, libellous, allegation.

Given that the silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ is giving voice to the zeitgeist of contemporaneous Western society by simply parroting Magian propaganda about a particular person – disliked, even hated, as that person is by the savants of the Magian status quo – then the silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ is most certainly not, as they believe, “of the Left Hand Path.”

Conclusion

What this particular case illustrates, once again, is how the majority view by individuals – be they self-professed Occultists or ‘satanists’ – of both the Order of Nine Angles and of Mr Myatt is simply a parroting of Magian propaganda about a particular person and about a particular esoteric philosophy.

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 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,” {8} to his decade as an active supporter of Muslim Jihad {9}{10}, to his Western, ineluctably pagan, philosophy of pathei-mathos {11}, and his recent translations of Western texts about hermeticism {12} which restore them to the Western, pagan, mystical tradition.

Our silly and ill-informed ‘someone’ is therefore simply following what has become something of an established Magian tradition of demeaning and trying to discredit both the O9A and Mr Myatt.

{1} Being pedants by inclination and occupation, we shall explain what we mean by various terms. Dialectical/dialectic:

(i) Having premises which are merely probable as opposed to demonstrably true; based on probable opinions rather than on demonstrable fact. (ii) Characterized by the existence or operation of opposing forces, tendencies, opinions, etcetera; the tension and disputes produced by the clash of such forces, opinions, etcetera; and the revealing of truth (the insight) that can result from such tension, disputes, and clashes. (iii) A disputant who disputes to be transgressive and/or to engender a dialectical response.

(ii) Polemic/polemical:

“Of the nature of, exhibiting, given to, or relating to dispute or controversy; contentious, disputatious, combative. a diatribe. A controversial argument; a strong verbal or written attack on a person, opinion, or doctrine. An aggressive debate or controversy; the practice of engaging in such debate. A person who argues or writes in opposition to another, or who takes up a controversial position; a controversialist.”

{7} The O9A use the term Magian to refer to the hybrid ethos of Yahoud and of Western hubriati, and to those individuals who are Magian by either breeding or nature. The essence of the paternalistic Magian ethos is inherent in Judaism, in Nasrany, and in Islam.

Two of the most prominent manifestations of the Magian ethos, in the modern world and in Western societies in particular, are (i) the State sponsored religion of holocaustianity (with the attendant demonizing of Hitler, the Third Reich, National Socialism, and the demonizing of ‘White’ – but not of non-White – ethnic awareness) and (ii) causal abstractions deriving from materialism, with the attendant cults of (a) usury and capitalism, and of (b) hubris and egoism such as the “Ayn Rand with trappings” so-called ‘satanism’ of Howard Stanton Levey.

Hubriati: The O9A use the term hubriati to refer to that class of individuals, in the West, who have been and who are subsumed by the Magian ethos and the delusion of (causal) 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.
