Re: Setian Arcanum What is a Setian?

Conventional religions seek to exchange individuality for a comforting sense of safety in numbers. The Setian, by contrast, is a dedicated Black Magician who rejects becoming absorbed into the universe, but rather works to glorify, expand, and preserve his or her own unique identity and self-awareness.

Why Set?

Set is an ancient Egyptian god of chaos and darkness. He was the god of the night sky, storms, etc. Set was depicted as a very unusual creature with no earthly counterpart, owing to his importance as a representation of all things unnatural, unpredictable, and hidden.

If we consider the consiousness to be the unnatural side of the metaphysical mind/body experience, then Set may be accurately viewed as the transcendental origin thereof. Set offers no grace or hand-holding, but is able to reveal one's higher potential when apprehended.

What is Xeper?

The word Xeper (or Kheper) means "to come into being", and is related to the self-created Egyptian god Khepri.

Xeper represents advancement in the evolution of the psyche through the force of will. Something may inspire someone to embark on a new personal quest, but it is up to the individual to see it through to completion.

What is Remanifestation?

Remanifestation is made evident when something is repeated over and over. What was initially gained through Xeper is extended through Remanifestation, resulting in an even greater expansion of the consciousness and sense of selfhood.

What is the significance of Darkness?

Great things may be discovered in darkness: rare arifacts in tombs, new cosmic discoveries, etc. The psyche is a dark place few dare to explore, but the Black Magician boldly embarks down the dark corridors of the mind and seeks out the hidden treasures within.

What is the Black Flame?

The Black Flame is the Magical gift of self-awareness that allows humans to formulate their own thoughts and come to their own conclusions.

As it is separate from the natural order, it cannot be fueled by it. It is therefore the responsibility of the Setian to re-kindle the Black Flame through Xeper and Remanifestation, lest it die out.

What is Black Magic?

There are two forms of Black Magic:

Lesser Black Magic (LBM) is employed to influence a particular outcome in the Objective realm through direct, often subtle manipulation of people, places, and things.

Greater Black Magic (GBM) is the alteration of the Subjective experience of the Magician, which will instantiate a reflection of that change in the Objective realm if the Working is successful.

Magic and Machines Found this interesting:

Reprints from: National Satanic BBS

by Roger L. Whitaker, Priest of Set III* Temple of Set
Electronic mail: CompuServe 72460,3034
 
1. MAGIC AND MACHINES
 
As one begins to study the complex of ideas and concepts pertinent to the
interests of legitimate Satanism, one is always surprised and interested to
hear of the utilization of electro/mechanical means to influence the
atmosphere contained within the immediate area of the ritual chamber.
Ionization, ozonization, high-frequency resonance, and electro-magnetic
fields have all been used within the chambers of sorcerers through the use
of such devices as Van de Graaf generators, Tesla coils, synthesizers etc.
 
The introduction of these energies into the chamber environment serves a
dual, connected purpose. The first is to heighten the physical separation of
the ritual chamber from the outside world. Secondly, it is used to create a
cerebral separation within the participants who enter within the chamber's
immediate area of influence.
 
The most commonly known source of information regarding this very specific
type of Black Magic may be found in Anton Szandor LaVey's book, _The Satanic
Rituals_ [LaVey is also the author of the _Satanic Bible_]. In particular
the ritual entitled "Die Elektrischen Vorspiele" contains many of the
essential elements germane to this article. I highly recommend its reading.
 
In addition to the energies inherent in any high-voltage electrical field,
high-frequency tonal resonance, specific lighting designs, and the actual
chamber layout all contribute to the alienation which is desired in the
Black Magician's ritual environment. The Temple of Set has been conducting
research into these little-known areas of Black Magic for several years. Our
Work has been generally successful.
 
Recently a southern California company has begun to market machines which
utilize flashing lights and tonal frequencies to produce desired brain wave
states in humans for relaxation purposes. It is rather interesting to note
that turn-of-the-century German sorcerers were using these same general
techniques within their magical environments over 80 years ago! The Temple
of Set has continued to refine the tradition begun by our Black Brothers
nearly a century ago.
 
The specific theories which lie behind this very distinct and effective form
of Black Magic may be found within the archives of the Temple of Set. These
materials are not available to the general public.


2. THE LAW OF THE TRAPEZOID
 
Of central importance to the Occult Institute of Technology (OIT) is the study
and cataloguing of the subjective/objective impressions and manifestations
which occur within an "angular" environment. By the term "angular" I am
specifically speaking of the ratios of both _pi_ and _phi_. These may come
in the form of physical planes, frequency ratios (resonant forms),measured
electrical field phenomena, and visual representations.
 
Why are these ratios important? Anton LaVey summed it up via his "Law of the
Trapezoid", which states: "All obtuse Angles are magically harmful to those
unaware of this property. The same angles are beneficial, stimulating, and
energizing to those who are magically sensitive to them."

By environment I mean the AREA OF INFLUENCE by which the various
representations of the angles (visual,audio,field phenomena) are able to act
within.
 
What exactly happens when an individual enters a angular environment? It is
very apparent that a polarity is produced within the individual. This is in
essence what the Law of the Trapezoid describes. Some are attracted to the
environment, and others are repelled. Along with attraction comes mental
imagery that tries to encompass infinite concepts. Those who are repelled go
to the opposite with imagery that has a profound morbid aspect connected to
it. Feelings of impending death on a individual and species-wide scale,
theirs is a finite image. These are generalizations; I have seen extremes
with both polarities. The bottom line is that there is an effect produced,
no one really understands the actual nature of the effect, nor its
boundaries. We will find out.
 
Most certainly each individual has felt the effects of an angular
environment. Many symbols incorporate angular features into their motif, and
most certainly we have all felt moved by particular music forms in a manner
falling into the above description of what happens in a angular environment.
Haunted house phenomena is most common in homes that have many angular
shapes both inside and out. Angles produce the "Command to Look"[cf. _The
Command to Look_ by William Mortensen], which then motivates into a polarity
which can be predictable. The ability to unlock the secret of the angles
will allow a more precise refining of its exhilarating - and thus inspiring
- properties is a goal that OIT has been working on with some degree of
success. We will continue to refine these findings to create a methodical
approach in creating these environments.


3. TONAL ANGULARITY: MUSICK THAT KILLS
 
Tonal Angularity (or TA for short) in its most easily understood conceptual
sense is the Command to Look applied within the construction of the
components which comprise a sound. This very precise refinement and
manipulation of the elements of sound have only become possible (outside a
sound lab) with the advent of synthesizers, and in particular with the
recent marketing of affordable midi digital synthesizers.
 
The Principle of Tonal Angularity is intimately tied to the Law of the
Trapezoid. The prime difference in the application of TA as opposed to other
forms of angularity is its method of transfer. Visual angularity is an
observable medium, while TA is abstract. The angles of TA are vibratory in
form and as such are dynamic in that they are in constant motion as one
encounters an area of their influence.
 
Other than mode of transmission, the underlying mathematical scheme is
precisely the same for all angular forms whether they be visual, field
phenomena, or audio. All are dependent upon equivalent mathematical ratios
to pi-phi and other mathematical formula which won't be discussed in this
introductory treatise. TA is essentially geometric measurement applied to
the creation of frequency ratios between multiple sine waves.
 
Some of the elements which can be manipulated in TA would be pitch, wave
form, harmonic structure, harmonic relationships, frequency modulation,
amplitude modulation, frequency ratio (very important), the envelope and
finally, volume.
 
Over the past two years OIT has created a number of musical compositions
based upon the TA concept. If you would like to personally participate in
experiments based upon these concepts, contact me stating your desire for
more information. If you would like to purchase a cassette tape featuring
two TA oriented compositions, the price is $7.50, with all funds going
directly into our research.

5. BINAURAL BEATS

In 1839 an independent German experimenter by the name of H.W.Dove
discovered a most unusual and fascinating audio phenomena which is called
today by the name of "Binaural beats". Binaural beats, as the name implies,
must have two independent sound sources which further must be isolated from
interacting with each other in any way (if they do, you get monaural beats
which do not possess the interesting aspects of binaural). In the 1830s this
could only be accomplished by using three rooms, sealing them, and having
the subject stay in the middle room with tubes running from his/her ears
into the left and right rooms. In the left and right rooms a tuning fork
would be activated, one tuning fork of a slightly different pitch than the
other. A lot of trouble, but it worked. Today we can use stereo separation
and a good set of stereo headphones to achieve the same results.
 
A binaural beat is produced when two separate sine waves of slightly
different resonant frequency are applied - in isolation - to one's ears.
What occurs is of interest. What you will hear will be a "beat" which will
represent the resonant difference between the two sine waves. For instance,
if you apply a 440 HZ signal to one ear, and a 434 HZ signal to the other,
the binaural beat will be 6 HZ - the frequency-difference between the two
sine waves. This can also be achieved monaurally, but there is a loss of
some very distinct characteristics which make binaural beats of so much
interest.
 
First, binaural beats when produced feel as if the source of the beat is
located within your head. You can feel the beat resonating physically inside
your head! They seem to come from an internal source rather than an external
one. The beats can be so potent as to make you feel a bit dizzy - similar to
the effects of a strong magnetic field. This unusual manifestation is
essentially considered an "illusion" by researchers for lack of any other
explanation. Since researchers cannot explain HOW a low frequency HZ signal
could have as its source the brain, they suggest that it doesn't really
exist at all! Because of this there has been very little active research
done with binaural beats other than to determine the bandwidth of
frequencies which makes them possible.
 
In an unpublished paper for the Temple of Set's Order of the Trapezoid, I
discussed in some technical detail that a combination of 2 or more sine
waves would produce new audio elements as their frequency ratios were
altered. The new element would not simply be the sum of sympathetic sine
waves but rather was interactive and something more than the sum of its
parts. Much along these same lines are binaural beats, though in my case
they were monaural.
 
Scientific evidence suggests that binaural beats are processed very
differently than normal sound waves. They have also found that the ability
to hear binaural beats is greatly diminished when one is ill. There are also
suggestions that hormonal levels in the bloodstream also effect the range
and ability to perceive the beats.
 
Another interesting facet of binaural beats is that they can be perceived
even when one of the signal lies up to a 100 times below the threshold of
hearing! Conversely with monaural beats, only the louder sound level will be
heard with no beats. Also, background noise will enhance one's ability to
hear binaural beats and actually make them easier to hear. With monaural
beats the background noise would drown them out, making them impossible to
hear.
 
Now that we know a little about binaural beats, the possibilities of their
use in producing Tonally Angular effects becomes readily apparent. In TA, we
know that a polarization of one's subjective impressions will occur within
its monaural area of influence. What of TA's effects when produced
binaurally? What if the effects are synchronized to brain wave frequencies?
Are the effects enhanced? diminished?
 
Binaural beats will greatly aid the wise Sorcerer who utilizes them in a
Form resonant environment. The exact nature of its viability is yet to be
discovered though we may postulate upon them.


6. LAKHOVSKY MULTI-WAVE OSCILLATOR

The MWO (multi wave oscillator) is a unique high voltage electronic device
which was invented by the late (1942) Russian scientist Lakhovsky prior to
the advent of WWII. The MWO utilizes a Tesla coil to supply its high voltage
electrical discharge and was touted in the 1930s as being a device capable
of curing nearly every major human ailment [sounds like a little snake oil
here]. The MWO uses two vortex-shaped secondary coils, one is called  a
resonator [shades of HPL's _From Beyond_!], and the other is called a
radiator. To obtain the MWO's purported medicinal effects, the subject would
sit between the two secondaries and act as a receiver.
 
The purpose of this article is not to suggest the unauthorized medical use
of this device. There are other, more esoteric functions of which the device
has been purported to be capable, and it is these in which OIT has an
interest. The supposed medical uses of the device are mentioned for
historical information only on the MWO.
 
The MWO emits a bandwidth of radio frequency energy which ranges from the
audible spectrum up to and beyond the microwave frequencies. It is theorized
that with this multiple range of frequencies, every living cell in a
"receiving" subject can have its particular resonant frequency (cellular
resonance) activated into a higher state of biological activity. Though the
electrostatic energy from the MWO cannot enter living cells - it follows the
surface of the skin - the electro-magnetic field DOES penetrate and
stimulate an EMF within each cell.
 
The basis upon which Lakhovsky supported the operation of the MWO was that
all cells capable of reproduction contain within their nuclei filaments of
conductive material surrounded by insulating tissue. This filament
(suggested to be the RNA/DNA complex) is in the form of a spiral or helix -
in other words the shape of a coil. The implications of this shape is that
like ALL coil shaped forms it will react as a tuned circuit when its
particular resonant frequency is approximated by an external oscillating
coil.
 
Independent experimenter Robert Beck further postulated in the 1960s that by
exciting the nuclei with electro-magnetic energy, a "charge" is induced by
the long-established principle of electro-magnetic induction. This induction
demonstrably raises the energy level and perhaps vitality of every living
cell within the MWO's field of influence simultaneously. Because each cell
is individual and of differing physical dimensions, the exciting wavelengths
must be multiple and span a broad spectrum of frequencies. The electromotive
force produced by the MWO and induced within the cells nucleus raises the
cells metabolic rate through electrolysis and it is here that the beneficial
qualities of the MWO supposedly take place.
 
Very little experimentation has been done with the MWO due to its
unavailability in the United States. Most machines here had to be built from
scratch using the original patent designs (which expired in 1952). A new-age
electronics lab, Klark Kent Super Science in Dayton, Ohio, now offers an
updated version for sale for about $700.00.
 
Time Travel? Some of the more interesting theories concerning the MWO is
that if one stays in the oscillating field for extended lengths of time, the
vibratory rates of the cells will be accelerated to the point that the
subject will disappear into a time warp! No one's tried it. One independent
experimenter who stayed in the field for over an hour reported feeling faint
and had to get out before he lost consciousness! OIT intends to purchase a
MWO for independent study of its effects within Angular Environments, and
also to test the "time theory" which may develop into an aid for those
interested in Erotic Crystallization Inertia (ECI) studies.
 
If you have had experience with a MWO, please contact me.

Re: Magic and Machines A Tesla Coil would make an excellent Black Flame if the space allows for it. This is the company mentioned in the essay: http://www.amazing1.com/tesla-coils.html.

I most often use a plasma globe for the Black Flame. Aquino mentions the use of one in Black Magic. (He calls it "Eye of the Storm", which was a brand name.) If electricity appeals to you, they are mesmerizing and safe to use when candles/flames are impractical (Hotels etc). They also emit a faint high-frequency noise that adds presence to the room.

One often-overlooked source of high-voltage is an ordinary car ignition coil. Pulsed 12V in, 30kV out. Years ago I made a cheesy jacob's ladder that ran on a couple lantern batteries so I could take it to show friends.

I have chosen this magical direction for myself. I don't intend to create purely "angular" environments, but do intend to include the concept in Workings and record my findings.

I tend to think a little "angular" can go a long way. As Anton LaVey mentions in The Devil's Notebook: The "mad" room would be discovered to have [often just] one wall slightly off vertical...

Re: Setian Arcanum
I tend to regard Remanifestation to be nearly the same as Xeper where ones being changes through doing many things such as Magick in general. But what I don't understand is repeating things over and over within Remanifestation, I can understand learning from ones mistakes in general but I was curious on what you meant by repeating things over and over with Remanifestation.

Xeper isn't really the thing that is repeated. Remanifestation is the continuation of a specific aspect of personal development once made manifest by a moment of Xeper.

Around the age of eight, I was inspired to pursue computer programming. The school only had a single machine, and computers were primitive back then, but I went as far as I could at the time. As technology improved, I found myself Remanifesting this thing called "programming" over and over, perhaps even hundreds of times. But there was a single moment of Xeper which I remember well.

That's my personal understanding of the term.

Re: Setian Arcanum More thoughts on Xeper/Remanifest:

If Xeper represents self creation, Remanifestation is analogous to self re-creation. A moment of Xeper can initiate a "positive-feedback loop" of Remanifesation that keeps things anew. But it can go the other way also, if negative thoughts and actions get in the way.

Therefore I feel that it is important to not only value past accomplishments, but also to see them in the "now", rather than become locked into a nostalgic mindset. Prior accomplishments can be picked up and become ever greater with a little effort put back into them.
