Order of the Serpent Update, July 2017 Wow, July is almost over, how in the world did that happen?! It's been a very busy month for pretty much all members it seems, I know it has been for me! As was already announced, the O.S. has updated both its logo and mission statement, trying to better illustrate the diversity the O.S. strives for. It is still commonly believed that we are a Setian organization, but this is simply not the case, and many members do not identify as "Setian." These updates were some of the biggest announcements for this month, but there's no need to retread old ground here!

The second volume of The Imperishable Star should be coming at the end of August or beginning of September, right now everything is just being finished up and the editing is starting. Once again it is looking like there will be 10 articles in this volume, though there may be an additional article or two. The articles to expect thus far are:

1. The Pale Lady - a true story from W. Adam Smythe

2. Sigil Magic - an essay by Child of Darkness

3. Subjective Thoughts on the ONA - a piece by Xepera maSet

4. The Importance of Ego and Self - and essay by W. Adam Smythe

5. Xeper as the Will to Power - essay by Kheper

6. Who is Lucifer? - essay from the defunct Order of the Dawning Sun

7. (untitled work on L-Fields) - a scientific experiment by Onyx

8. Chaoskampf - an essay by Xepera maSet

9. Homage to Set and Summoning of the Nine Neteru - a ritual by Setamontet

10. Good vs. Evil and the Unchanging - an essay by Agape Therion

The O.S. sends its best wishes with Merytseth, who has left the order for unknown spiritual reasons. Her works on mathematics, and the influence from those works, will hold a permanent place within the O.S. Unfortunately her work on The Serpent and the Demonic Feminine will not be available in vol. II as planned, but a new version of the project will be in the works for vol. III.

As always, we are thankful to everyone who engages in the O.S. forums, and to everyone who supports us in their own ways. Our goal has been and remains the growth of available, accurate, and up to date information on the esoteric WLHP, and we will continue to seek ways to accomplish this!

Is LaVeyan Satanism part of the WLHP? One very interesting aspect of LaVeyan Satanism, which most seem to overlook, is that Satan is seen as an aspect of nature, in this case one intiminately related to hedonism. The problem with this is that LaVeyan Satanism is essentially about not fighting our nature, giving into it and submitting certain aspects of the universe. This is, so far as I can tell, the exact opposite of what the WLHP seeks to accomplish, which is a mastery of ones nature, a separation from the greater Nature as a whole. Submission to "forces of nature" is essentially the defining trait of the WRHP.

We also have the issue of Peter Gilmore, a man so dogmatic he believes all who disagree with him are on some level insane, and holds "nothing but contempt for them." It doesn't take a lot of explaining to show why this may contradict the ideology of the WLHP. Further, the Church of Satan as a whole tens to hold the claim that it is the only valid form of satanism, despite objective and even academic fact disagreeing with this. It may be more an unwritten rule, but when I think WLHP I don't think about denying objective facts just to claim ones sect is the only valid version.

Re: Kek, Consciousness, Meme Magic, and connection to Set I don't know about all the alt-right magic stuff. It's certainly possible that many different groups work with strange, mad gods, such as the monster gods of the Islamic State or crusaders.

Re: Kek, Consciousness, Meme Magic, and connection to Set Just a note but pepe wasn't originally alt-right and was a meme for a long time before they used him.

It's actually sad as the creator who actually still had him as a character in his comics decided to retire him due to the association.

As for meme magic, it seems kinda silly and weird to me, but hey what works is what works. I might come back to this topic once I checked out the site ect and thought about it a little more.

Re: Kek, Consciousness, Meme Magic, and connection to Set Thanks @Ave Lucifugus for bringing this to my attention. Kek is not an entity that I am familiar with as of yet. I can honestly say that this is the first time that I'm taking a meme seriously. I have bookmarked this topic for further examination.
