Re: The Gift of Set is a double-edged sword I have edited parts of this essay, and may possibly submit it as part of a more expansive article I am working on for The Imperishable Star newsletter.

Re: The Egregore
I do not know the specifics of your black metal project but I would most likely define it as a hypersigil which is an extended creative work meant to effect reality.

This is just my first response.  Your term "hyper-sigil" is an excellent word to define my musical project "Archon", and its Black Magical purpose of effecting both the subjective and objective universes through a certain kind of music.

Re: LHP Lyrics and Poetry Excidium
Music and lyrics by Setamontet (Lord Dagon of Archonis)

Languishing forever deep in heavenly despair
The angels sigh, weeping for the loss of their heir
Satan Arch-Daemon, lord of all he surveys
Rules a throne now black, once gold, on this the end of days.

Nailed upon his cross defiled, cursed priest of lies
Crimson tears, the blood of sorrow dripping from his eyes
King of the subservient race, fallen Nazarene son
Thy father hath forsaken thee for the day of thy trinity is done.

Daemons of Infernal Light
I convoke the eternal Word of Aeons
Descend unto thy fortress of shadows
And enfold me in the raptures of damnation.

Set ablaze the cathedrals; they defile and plague the Earth
Receive thou liege of Lucifer the flame of Satanic rebirth
No more lies shall vomit forth from reviled christian tongues
Apostates of Hell, arise and hail the birth of Satan’s son.

Messengers from beyond the gates of chaos
Deliver unto me the keys to creation
For we are the keepers of the ancient sacred bond
Between the Prince of Hell and man.

Eternal Darkness now descends upon the land
Legions of evil gather in wait for the strike of death command
Satan Arch-Daemon, lord of all he surveys
Rules a throne now black, once gold, on this the end of days.

Daemons of Creation, remember!
And cast thy Satanic Will upon the world of horrors
Serpent of the sulfur sea, remember!
And embrace my restless soul
In a shroud of infernal black night glow!

Re: An Introduction Greetings and welcome Seka,

It seems the SB is how a lot of us first come to the LHP.  I became a Satanist when I was about 15, but then I discovered the Temple of Set in my late teens, and became a member first back in 1990 when I was 20. The ToS Initiated me into the deeper mysteries of the Black Arts and the Prince of Darkness, and I was an initiate back then for about 4 years.  I decided to leave the Temple to focus my life on my musical education and other things.

I decided to re-enter the Temple once again back in the middle 2000's and was a member for about 3 1/2 years.  My tenure in the Temple transformed me into an eternal Setian and Black Magician, but my dedication now lies with the Order of the Serpent.

Welcome aboard and,

Don't be fooled by online predators A few years back my mom was called by phone by someone (with a foreign accent), telling her that there was something wrong with her computer and internet access.  She spoke with them and gave them access to her computer, passwords, etc.  They ended up being frauds and destroyed her entire internet system, etc.

In the past year I have been contacted twice by phone, including this morning, by someone (with a foreign accent), telling me the same things.  I simply say to them "I don't have a PC nor do I participate on the internet", and they immediately hang up.

Online predators are in our midst.  :rolleyes:

If there is something wrong with my pc or internet I contact my provider, they never initially contact me.  Just be warned, and never give out your passwords to these folks, they don't need them to fix the problems!

O.'.S.'. Founders' Statement
Order of the Serpent
Founders' Statement

The Order of the Serpent (O.S.) is an esoteric school of the Western Left Hand Path. It is comprised of unique individuals and philosopher-Magicians, dedicated to the study and practice of Self-Directed Self-Evolution (also known as Xeper, Black Magic, or other terms). The Order is dedicated to the accumulation and preservation of the knowledge and undefiled wisdom of the Prince of Darkness and the occult/Black Arts. The focus of the O.S. is the Individual Self, both as in one’s personal development and the concept or Form of the Individual Self. The O.S. founders believe that we all have individual hidden truths within ourselves, and our goal is to uncover, and ultimately become the perfect and complete manifestation of these truths.

The O.S. is rooted in extreme individualism, and its members are capable of working with a concept and forming their own thoughts, ideas, and understanding of them. Discussion and rational debate are both welcome and encouraged. Those involved are able to form their own belief systems, tools of initiation, and are able to forge their own unique path. Unlike most other metaphysical ideologies which seek to dissolve the self, subjugate it to questionable beings, or even deny its existence by reducing it to pure matter, the O.S. seeks to increase its own freedom of Mind and Will, and that of others. It recognizes the Self, the one thing each being can truly know to exist, as the center of reasoning, as well as the center of society. Rather than seeing humans as deterministic slaves, fallen beings in need of saving, or creatures meant to serve the State, the Order believes that Self-Actualization at the individual level is the key to human advancement. In a world where humans are little more than statistics, the Order of the Serpent recognizes that all change, as well as all knowledge, begins with the individual Self.

Unlike a symbolic occult organization, some sort of statement, or simply a self-help group, the O.S. is an esoteric organization, founded upon the metaphysical position that there is something beyond the simple world of matter and psychology. Whether the creator God of the West, the mindless Nature of materialism, or flowing Way of the East, the Order of the Serpent recognizes these as one in the same, an order imposed upon chaos that underlies, creates, and drives the entire cosmos. The difference with the Esoteric Western Left Hand Path, the O.S. included, is that we do not accept that this order is complete, wholly deterministic, or even necessarily “good.” It is what leads to cancer and depression, starvation and war, whether it allows this to happen, determines it, or is un-intelligent and cannot do otherwise. Yet in the individual we have free will, the ability to go against this Natural Order or malevolent God. This ability has been demonized, described as an illusion, or even completely ignored specifically because it can go against Nature/God, which is why “self-directed self-evolution” has been associated with “black magic” for so long in Western society.

More specifically, the Order of the Serpent is founded in its own metaphysical view of Neo-Platonism. The founders accept the objective existence of the Realm of Forms, which is separated into Simple Forms (which cannot partake in themselves, such as “Pointedness”), and Complex Forms (which partake in themselves, such as “Consciousness” or “Knowledge”). The Complex Forms, being abstract, necessary, non-spacial, and non-temporal, yet also conscious, self-aware, and knowledgeable, are themselves indistinguishable from traditional polytheistic gods. Indeed, “gods” are more simply seen as a perversion of Complex Forms, a misunderstanding. While there is no central “god-head” within the Order, there is a certain henotheistic focus on Forms of Consciousness, Inspiration, Art, Intoxication, Self-Awareness, Knowledge, and so forth.

The name for the Order of the Serpent comes from the Northern Circumpolar Stars, specifically the massive constellation Draco, which never sets below the horizon. To the earliest human religions, these were seen as being free from the cycles of the moon, sun, planets, and even constellations and stars. Separate from the ebb and flow of Nature/”God”, those associated with the Imperishable Stars were free to permanently exist, to forge their own path free from those cycles. It was only later on that world religion began to dissolve into its current Solar form. The Order of the Serpent hopes to remanifest this ancient, Pre-Solar metaphysics in the modern day - within the 21st century.

The insignia of the Order is a pentagram, representing that point of inner-consciousness where the individual Self exists. The pentagram is within a circle representing the physical shell of the Self, but the points of the pentagram do not touch this circle, symbolizing the continued separation between Self and Body. The separation of the metaphysical (pentagram) from the physical (circle) exists because the elements of both are independent and distinct from one another. Stemming from this pentagram are five symbols, from Norse, Sumerian, Egyptian, Chinese, and an ouroboros as a stylized O. It is meant to represent the diversity of interests within the O.S. We are not simply a Setian, Thelemic, Asatru, Hermetic, Luciferian/Satanic, or any single approach, but a place for such individuals to help each other grow, and help share useful information.

The Order of the Serpent provides such resources currently as the Library of the Ancient Serpent, the O.S. forums, and the Order newsletter "The Imperishable Star". The forum is meant to provide a Left Hand Path online community focused on rational, esoteric discussion. The Imperishable Star provides essays written by members in order to share esoteric knowledge with the outside world. Both are open and free to all. The O.S. does not have any initiatory hierarchy, all members are equal, from the founders to someone on day one. There are no membership fees, but we simply ask members to provide and discuss esoteric information, such as for publication in the newsletter. We do not believe in hoarding occult knowledge behind closed doors and paywalls, and try to keep the occult community updated on our progress. The application process is simply an email discussion with the founders, and an essay on pretty much any relevant topic of the applicant’s choosing.

We hope that you benefit from these resources, and encourage both followers of the Left Hand Path, and respectfully interested individuals, to join the forum absolutely free of charge and without membership. Those interested in aiding with our goal advancing and sharing esoteric knowledge, in and for the modern age, please feel free to send an enquiry email to, to start a thread on the forum, or to private message Xepera maSet, Setamontet, and Onyx on the forum.

The Path of Darkness leads to Enlightenment.
Like the Ancient Serpent, so too may you endure.

Invocation of Set
Invocation of Set

In the Name of Set, the supreme manifestation of the Prince of Darkness, I summon the Black Flame into my midst that I may Work my Will upon the warp and weave of the world.  O Majesty of Set, hear me, look upon me, and enshrine within me the essence of the Highest of Life.  Open wide the Gates of the Abyss and come forth from thy celestial solitude to greet me as a Brother and kindred Spirit.

Enshroud me with the Powers of Darkness; let Them become One with me as I am become One with the Eternal Set, whose Throne is within the darkness behind the Constellation of the Seven Stars.  As I send forth my most exalted and sublime Self arm it with the Shining Pentagram of Set, and with the Sceptre called Giver of Winds that it may slay the cosmic stasis, dismay all challenges, and cast down all that is moved to appear against it.

Let then, my eyes become the Eyes of Set, my strength become the Strength of Set, my will become the Will of Set!  From the primordial depths I am risen up and am become transformed like the mighty Khepera, with the Wings of the Falcon I soar the Infinite.  I dwell in the Fane of the Eternal Flame of Ba.  Space and time bend to my Will, and I am Lord of Life, Death, and Life beyond Death.  Hear then this Doom that I pronounce, and beware the Ka which now Comes Into Being through that ancient Art which is mine to command!
