Why Set Would Not Be "God" In my understanding, the Prince of Darkness, known to Setians as the Egyptian god/Neter Set, is the Ageless Intelligence of this Universe, the Highest of Life who with the force of His/Its own mind and will could recreate the Cosmos in his own image and become in essence the new "God"/Order of the Cosmos.

Set, however, is the First Principle of Isolate Intelligence, the supreme manifestation of the Prince "First" of Darkness, the spiritual essence of singular identity and independent conscious existence.

If Set were to become "God", if Set were to him Self displace the Cosmic Inertia, He/It should be forced to become a new measure of consistency. Set would cease to be One, singular, for He/It should become All.  He would lose all that makes him a unique consciousness as he would be responsible for the new All, the new Cosmic Inertia, Set would lose his very identity.

It is a theory that when Set understood this paradox he created others of the Black Flame, i.e., Gifting that which would become mankind, in order to cancel this imbalance.  Leaving a Void in which true creation could take form not just as Set but also as the individual minds and wills of the kindred of the creative fire.  Spawning other beings to collaborate with him in the re-creation of the Universe in new, unique, and unpredictable forms.  The coming into being of individuality in metaphysical existence.

Hence, Set would remain One, singular, and not the All responsible for the re-creation of the Cosmos, i.e. the new "God", the new Cosmic Order of things. Set does not seek to be the omnipresent manifestation of all things; but rather exalts and nurtures the singular presence of his own unique mind and will, and that of his own kind, us.

Brief Introduction to Setianism Setian Religion – or Setianism – is both ancient and modern in its metaphysics and practice. While practiced by numerous ancient Egyptian groups throughout history, surely those individuals would be quite alienated by the scope their god and his religion have taken on today. In the modern era, Setianism was (re)founded in the year 1975 by Dr. Michael A. Aquino, a well-respected and accomplished member of the psychological operations branch of the U.S. military, as well as a respected and accomplished occultist.

Setianism is rooted in the idea that there is a Platonic realm of Forms, which includes a Form of Isolate Intelligence. This Isolate Intelligence is understood as the individual self, which we refer to when we say “I exist.” Each intelligent being is recognized as a discrete, autonomous individual, and Set is the Form of these isolate entities. Like the Isolate Intelligence, Set was understood as a god against the other gods and against nature itself, capable of questioning, manipulating, and going against the “Natural Order.”

There is also a rising school of thought known as Setian Idealism, which sees the Set-Horus entity as the primitive ontology of the universe. In this view the Set-Horus entity may be seen as a divine mind, with Horus as the unconscious aspect, responsible for the unchanging laws of physics, math, logic, etc., And the Set aspect as the conscious, changing, growing aspect with free will.

The main metaphysical goal of Setianism is based on the concept of “Xeper”, an Egyptian word that we could call a “static verb”, meaning “to come into being.” Xeper is something constantly happening, it is a fundamental aspect of the universe, an axiomatic fact. Each moment to moment, the universe comes into being in different ways on every level, from a seed sprouting to a supernova, a first sexual experience to the creation of a new galaxy. The difference for Setians is that they try to willfully control and guide their own Xeper, to create their own destiny in accordance with their will rather than the non-literal “will” of Nature. This process of willfully controlling one’s own Xeper is known as “magic”, or more specifically “Black Magic” in Setianism.

There are no specific holy texts for Setianism, though big ones include The Book of Coming Forth by Night, The Diabolicon, The Tablets of Set, the works of Dr. Michael Aquino, Don Webb, some by Dr. Stephen Flowers, and many more. While the Temple of Set is known as the main face of Setianism, many Setians – if not most – practice individually outside of the Temple, or have formed other organizations.

While the Order of the Serpent was founded by Setians, it is not a Setian organization. The O.S. welcomes members from all of the Left-Hand Path, and is more of a “meta-path” than other LHP organizations have been thus far. The only founder to have been involved with the Temple of Set was @Setamontet, who happily answers most questions on the topic and is full of awesome stories.

Re: Would you follow a Satan similar to the one from christian mythos? Well yes. If Christianity is somewhat true somehow, then the "truth" of it must be something like gnostic satanism. There no conceivable way that Yahweh is actually some all loving all powerful creator. He is a weak enslaver.

How would you describe the LHP? Hi all,
I've been asked to write a short piece on the LHP, how it is different to the RHP and why it is not necessarily evil. I'm not entirely sure where to start so wondered if anyone had any suggestions? I think part of the issue is that it's such a big topic :/
Thanks in advance

Re: Origin of Lucifer The Morning Star lead the horses of the sun, but the Evening Star lead the horses of the moon.
Statius, Thebaid 8. 159 ff :
"Dark Vesper (the Evening Star) [Hesperos] is already leading forth the horses of the moon."

Re: Origin of Lucifer
Hekate (here with Hermes, Persephone, & Demeter) is a moon goddess holding her two torches--one for the Morning Star and one for the Evening Star:

Cool stuff. I do find it a little odd to call Venus the torch of the moon, since she is so much more strongly linked to the motions of the Sun. I'm not sure exactly when your image was created, but apparently there was a time in Greek culture when the twin aspects of the morning star and the evening star had not yet been reconciled as one entity - the luminary Venus. I sort of see a connection to this in the representation of the two torches.
You can see the development of Hekate as the triple moon goddess in this statue from the Lourve Museum:  caption:
