I'm interested to read your sutta references, crossfire.

See my first attachment.

Set is the Lord of the Left Hand Path. My allegiance is to Set and not at all to any Temple.


In the games of power, ethics, or survival, I, like anyone, can be defeated. But as long as my brain permits, I cannot be defeated in my never ending commitment to observe myself, assess myself, and adamantly adjust and accelerate myself. In self-absorption I have my immortality if such can be had at all.

This is Setianism stripped to its bare essence, as symbolized by my second attachment.

And yes, I realize we all must walk the Right Hand Path when compelled by pragmatism (boss's power) or parental love (spawn's survival). No one walks the Left Hand Path 24/7 unless independently wealthy and either literally or effectively childless. The Left Hand Path is eternally forgiving. One can always return to it.

"My frantic fingers try and fail to unleash my parachute, and as the planet's airy shield tries and fails to repel me, I try and fail to pull my gaze from the verdant hilly floor of the sky."

Seal of the Ego, by me.

Setian Philosophy / Setianism in a Nutshell
« on: February 26, 2020, 10:33:29 am »
I finally get Setianism. It took me such a long time because I thought the Egyptology, the Orders, and the Crowleyan and LaVeyan affectations mattered. None of that matters.

Setianism in a nutshell:

"Behold! I AM! Thus awake, I observe myself, assess myself, adamantly adjust and accelerate myself, and by virtue of my self-absorption, I shall - if anyone ever has or will - I shall escape annihilation. EGO INVICTUS!"

All the rest the Temple talks about is cud to be chewed by cows.

FYI, the last two words of the above assertion mean, in Latin, "I undefeated."

Let's assume that I too am a demon.

Having said this, I must differentiate between psychopathology and gnosis. Where is the dividing line?

I propose the dividing line to be quality of life. I have to propose this, because, for whatever reason, I am without what some would call "occult senses." I can't see auras, for example, nor ghosts. I can only test an occult proposition by taking it on board, letting it inform my life, and then testing the outcome.

I know the path by walking the path and learning what it is like to do so.

Psychopathology is the opposite of gnosis. Gnosis improves mental stability, improves digestion and sleep, improves social adroitness, improves practical effectiveness, and improves the alignment of values and circumstances. Psychopathology does exactly the opposite.

If I assert, "I am a demon," and live by this assertion, and discover thereby that my mind is more stable, my digestion and sleep are more problem-free, my social interactions are more graceful, my ability to have my way in the material world is more pronounced, and my existence is better aligned with what I want it to be, then I may consider my assertion to be gnosis, and continue confidently forward into the unknown under the aegis and light of what I now may say that I know.

What, then, is a demon? It is a spirit of power that did not originate on Earth. What is an angel? It is a spirit of virtue that did not originate on Earth.

A spirit of power can be left or right handed. Left handed, it takes the throne. Right handed, it serves the throne. Either way, it is never virtue that matters, but power.

Likewise, a spirit of virtue can be left or right handed. Left handed, it originates conscience. Right handed, it receives conscience. Either way, it is never power that matters, but virtue.

I believe the Temple of Set considers Set to be the one and only real deity.

Science / Re: How and why to colonize Venus

I hope fusion reactors for spaceflight prove workable. I endorse anything conducive to getting humans to Venus or Mars.

It's interesting how my mind has subtly evolved recently. I never used to say "Venus or Mars." I used to only say "Mars."

Apparently one of my higher selves is interested in Venus.

For the heck of it, another article.

This article is from late 2018:

Humanity will eventually do this, I think, if valuable minerals are found to be available there. I hope we do.

A self is anything that can formulate, grasp, and care about the concepts "I" and "me" with respect to itself, regardless of linguistic capability.

Self in the Left Hand sense is all selves, hence the biological self (body and mind) plus any and all alternate, lower, or higher plane selves, many or all of which survive death.

Self in the Right Hand sense is the biological self (body and mind) plus some sort of connection to the ALL. The connection to the ALL is the soul and survives death, either with or without the biological mind.

Self and ego are interchangeable for me. I only used the word "ego" because of the phrase, "dissolution of the ego."

Satanism / Re: Money

I finally went shopping for a new office chair to replace the one that was damaged (see prior post up above in this thread). I found a chair that was even better suited to me than the one that had been damaged, and this one was marked down from $260 to $150, nearly half off. I bought it with the reimbursement money I'd gotten for the broken one ($299) which means I had a better chair than before and $149 in my pocket.

Thanks Mammon!

Ego is the self, all of the self, inclusive of everything belonging to the self, exclusive of nothing belonging thereto. I'm not using the word in the Freudian sense, whereby ego, id, and superego are separate components.

The universe is ALL, the ultimate macrocosm, the sum total of absolutely everything, outside of which is absolutely nothing.

I realized belatedly that I should have reversed the directionality of the spectrum so as to match the left hand versus right hand expectations. I also realized I could mirror left to right by proposing something I never dreamed of, namely, dissolving ALL into ego, which is what I think is meant by the more radical proponents of apotheosis. See attached.

ALL is the universe, the ultimate macrocosm. The RHP will tend to perceive ALL as pantheistic. The LHP will tend to view ALL as I-theistic but only at the supreme level of attainment, for example the Diabolicon's Red Magus.

I like the menu of options. I immediately found, nevertheless, that as soon as I acknowledged there was a menu, I clearly saw that what's really at play is a spectrum.

The attached may look like a return to the drawing board but I assure you it is not. The idea of a spectrum only emerged in response to the idea of a menu. This is a forward advance to take more territory. It is by no means a retreat.

Ego is a multidimensional reality with ascending levels of higher self. Contemplating your "Holy Guardian Angel" is nothing other than contemplating ego.

You don't have to stay at one point on the spectrum all day and all night long. You can move around on it.

I think this gets us very close to a workable consensus reality.
