Homage to Set
Homage to Set and the Summoning of the Nine Neteru

O my Father, Set-Hen, I have glimpsed the Emerald Eye of Leviathan and have seen the great mysteries unseen by those without.  I have journeyed through the chasms of the Abyss and have performed deeds in thy holy Name.  I praise thee O mighty and everlasting god and I thank thee for the Gift of the Black Flame.

O Majesty of Set, I invoke thee to give me the Ankh of creative inspiration as I seek to create works of glory to you and to me.  Hear me Father, Lord of Darkness; for thy strength and power I yearn; my spirit hungers for thee, my heart thirsts for thy knowledge and undefiled wisdom.  Look upon me, O thou Highest of Life, Akh of the Seven Stars, and enshrine within me the essence of thy holy Sekhem.

By the glance of the Emerald Eye, I beheld my soul ascending and the god in my heart was Khepera and I saw infinite space. 
The god in my heart was Maat and I saw Beauty. 
The god in my heart was Anubis and I saw realms beyond time and spiritual black dimensions. 
The god in my heart was Nyarlathotep and I saw the place to erect my temple. 
The god in my heart was Shub-Niggurath and I saw how to create a world. 
The god in my heart was Osiris and I saw how to sink within and gather strength. 
The god in my heart was Set and I saw how to preserve the force of mind. 
The god in my heart was Isis and I saw how to re-shape in accordance with all my secrets. 
The god in my heart was Nepthys and I learned how to create time.

I look down upon the whole of the Earth and her secrets open to me.  Every spell and scourge is obedient to me!  I have equipped myself like Setamontet, Great-In-Magic, who passes now through the whole of the world.  Nothing shall prevail that works against me, nothing ceases that I put in motion.  I am become One with the Powers of Darkness!  I have cleaved the night and I am Reborn!  I Have Come Into Being like Set who mightily broke forth!

IAO SET!

Creativity and Selfhood The realization of a creative goal often requires mastering new things on the intellectual level. While one can certainly pursue knowledge for its own sake, I find myself more likely to learn things if they contribute to a personal expression of some sort.

One of my varied interests is guitarmaking. Initially, I intended to just make the body and purchase a pre-made neck. In discussing this with a friend, he said "you should make the neck also". I took up the challenge, and though my guitars aren't perfect, I am more pleased with my efforts than if I took the path of least resistance.

Which creative pursuits have enabled you to accomplish more than you thought possible?

"The message of Set to man is: 'Who gives a fuck?'"-Michael Kelly The following is an excerpt from Apophis. The channeled writing in the beginning of the book. After my recent crossing of the abyss and coming back from it, I can relate to it a lot and the Draconic philosophy in general is helping me bring back purpose to my life.

I placed it in the Setian section as Apophis is created by a former member of Order of Leviathan and this particular phrase mentions Set. I feel like Order of Leviathan and Apophis' philosophy is central to undertanding remanifestion and consiousness, at least for me.


“So now you know that beyond Desire there is to be found Desire.  When all of the bonds are loosed, when all of the attachments are severed, when the sense of Self is all that remains, cast adrift in a Void... you were carried through by Desire. “Not Desire for the things you had known and lost. The remembrance of the most urgent and important things in your life elicited not a flicker of interest in the void of ZAX. You cared nothing for them.  This Desire was not for person nor thing, but for the testing of possibilities, the extension of your Self into new arenas. “And now you awaken afresh to Desire between the spread thighs of Badhbh.  Mount Her chariot and ride with Her, heedless of all, laughing in lust and fury.  When the rules of the game displease you, sweep aside the pieces and play a different game. “The message of Set to Man is:  'Who gives a fuck?'”

Re: Towards Setian Idealism
If Setian Idealism is true Set is not the Form of Isolate Intelligence. I have been thinking about this a lot over the past week or however long, and I think the obvious replacement for it would be Thoth.

Although I disagree with this, I can understand how one would come to that conclusion.  In Egyptian mythology Thoth was alluded to as the counter of the stars, the measurer and enumerator of the Earth, as being twice great and thrice great lord of books, scribe of the gods, and possessing knowledge of divine speech, in which he was 'mighty'.

Re: Pentagrams in Ancient Egypt This is actually very common in a lot of ancient art in the middle east until the rise of monotheism. A lot of art and religion was very stellar based in the reigion, for whatever reason. It's worth noting that it seems unique to that area though. Go to maritame culture like the Minoans and Mycaneans and it's all focused on the sea rather than sky.

Re: Theosophy! I've been meaning to get into Theosophy at one point in time but all of my exposure to it comes from the crazy wackadoodle parts of Theosophy that should have been left behind and evolved into all kinds of bullshit.

I'm mainly referring to it's influence on the Nazi Party as well as Lemuria which evolved into probably one of the most out there conspiracy theories with a extremely bad new age following in the modern day. There's a whole Lemurian Crystal racket now.

I'm sure it actually has a lot of wonderful practical stuff but all my first impressions came from the aforementioned being discussed in a well-researched comedy podcast.

Re: Towards Setian Idealism Honestly idealism has the same problem as materialism in that different properties give rise to each other.

Re: The Serpent Mound I remember seeing this before. Some stuff from the book citied in the Wikipedia article, Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley. I did this in a rush, a full PDF is availble on archive.org.


ANCIENT WORKS, GREENE COUNTY, OHIO.

Probably the most extraordinary earthwork thus far discovered at the West, is the Great Serpent, of which a faithful delineation is given in the accompanying plan. It is situated on Brush creek, at a point known as the " Three Forks," on Entry 1014, near the north line of Adams county, Ohio. No plan or description has hitherto been published ; nor does the fact of its existence appear to have been known beyond the secluded vicinity in which it occurs. The notice first received by the authors of these researches was exceedingly vague and indefinite, and led to the conclusion that it was a work of defence, with bastions at regular intervals, — a feature so extraordinary as to induce a visit, which resulted in the discovery here presented. The true character of the work was apparent on the first inspection.

It is situated upon a high, crescent-form hill or spur of land, rising one hundred and fifty feet above the level of Brush creek, which washes its base. The side of the hill next the stream presents a perpendicular wall of rock, while the other slopes rapidly, though it is not so steep as to preclude cultivation. The top of the hill is not level but slightly convex, and presents a very even surface, one hundred and fifty feet wide by one thousand long, measuring from its extremity to the point where it connects with the table land. Conforming to the curve of the hill, and occupying its very summit, is the serpent, its head resting near the point, and its body winding back for seven hundred feet, in graceful undulations, terminating in a triple coil at the tail. The entire length, if extended, would be not less than one thousand feet. The accompanying plan, laid down from accurate survey, can alone give an adequate conception of the outline of the work, which is clearly and boldly defined, the embankment being upwards of five feet in height by thirty feet base, at the centre of the body, but diminishing somewhat towards the head and tail. The neck of the serpent is stretched out and slightly curved, and its mouth is opened wide as if in the act of swallowing or ejecting an oval figure, which rests partially within the distended jaws. This oval is formed by an embankment of earth, without any perceptible opening, four feet in height, and is perfectly regular in outline, its transverse and conjugate diameters being one hundred and sixty and eighty feet respectively. The ground within the oval is slightly elevated : a small circular elevation of large stones much burned once existed in its centre ; but they have been thrown down and scattered by some ignorant visitor, under the pre- vailing impression probably that gold was hidden beneath them. The point of the hill, within which this egg-shaped figure rests, seems to have been artificially cut to conform to its outline, leaving a smooth platform, ten feet wide, and some- what inclining inwards, all around it. The section a b will illustrate this feature.

Upon either side of the serpent's head extend two small triangular elevations, ten or twelve feet over. They are not high, and although too distinct to be over- looked, are yet too much obliterated to be satisfactorily traced. Besides a plat- form, or level oval terrace, at B, and a large mound in the centre of the isthmus connecting the hill with the table land beyond, there are no other remains, except- ing a few mounds, within six or eight miles, — none, perhaps, nearer than the entrenched hill in Highland county, (see Plate V,) thirteen miles distant. There are a number of works lower down on Brush creek, towards its mouth ; but their character is not known. The point on which this effigy occurs commands an extensive prospect, overlooking the " bottoms " found at the junction of the- three principal tributaries of the creek. The alluvial terraces are here quite extensive, and it is a matter of surprise that no works occur upon them.

The serpent, separate or in combination with the circle, egg, or globe, has been a predominant symbol among many primitive nations. It prevailed in Egypt, Greece, and Assyria, and entered widely into the superstitions of the Celts, the Hindoos, and the Chinese. It even penetrated into America ; and was conspicuous in the mythology of the ancient Mexicans, among whom its significance does not seem to have differed materially from that which it possessed in the old world. The fact that the ancient Celts, and perhaps other nations of the old continent, erected sacred structures in the form of the serpent, is one of high interest. Of this description was the great temple of Abury, in England, — in many respects the most imposing ancient, monument of the British islands.

It is impossible, in this connection, to trace the analogies which the Ohio struc- ture exhibits to the serpent temples of England, or to point out the extent to which the symbol was applied in America, — an investigation fraught with the greatest interest both in respect to the light which it reflects upon the primitive super- stitions of remotely separated people, and especially upon the origin of the American race.
