Announcements / Order of the Serpent 2018 Update
« on: June 21, 2018, 03:39:45 pm »
Hello everyone!

It has been a very long time since we had an update for the Order of the Serpent, and I felt today, which marks the beginning of the death of the Sun, was an appropriate day to get things back in order. First and foremost there will indeed be at least one new newsletter - The Imperishable Star - in the year of 2018. As the membership has leveled out there are a few less members who are dedicated to their own lives outside of the Order. We are busy people with busy lives, some of us in school, some of us leading massive work projects, some of us just busy as all hell. This is not something I am upset with though, it is a great honor to work with such committed and accomplished magicians. But we do have a duty in a sense to provide what this organization has promised to provide. As of now the plan is to have articles submitted by the end of September for publishing, to allow for more time without having to rush what we write.

Another new change is that the Order of the Serpent is considering publishing works from non-members in the newsletter. The founder's statement states something I have taken greatly to heart: "The Order is dedicated to the accumulation and preservation of the knowledge and undefiled wisdom of the Prince of Darkness." To me this simply means it is part of our goal to collect esoteric ideas, not solely to create them. Due to this I plan on reaching out to well established occultists with extensive knowledge in certain areas to share knowledge on those areas. This will be optional of course, but I think it will add a lot to The Imperishable Star and the work of the O.S.

Another new implementation is aimed at O.S. discussions being spread without forcing people onto the forum itself. For example, I plan to take interesting threads from the O.S. forum and share them on other forums such as Reddit. These will be posted in such a way where the conversation can take place on the forum one is one without having to sign up for the O.S. (though there are of course benefits of actual forums over something like Reddit of Facebook conversations). The original O.S. topic will be linked in the new threads so one can follow it if they desire without feeling like they're being forced to sign up here to discuss.

I took a break from the idea of an Imperishable Star 2017 book, but would be interested in feedback community. You see the idea would be to publish a hardcopy, edited, and more artistic edition of all the newsletter's from last year. My biggest concern would be this would have to be bought, making everything the O.S. provides no longer free. That said it would be more a collectible as all the newsletters will remain free on the website, and all money we would make would be put back into the O.S. such as running the forum or possibly one day even doing more like hosting events. I am too torn though on this and would love to hear both what those involved with the O.S. and those outside of it would think about this collectible book.

Other than that things are going well. I could not be more proud of this Order and could not be more honored to work with those both in the Order and our close friends who populate our Forums and support us. I believe the O.S. has the possibility to become something truly unique and desperately needed within the Left Hand Path community over the coming years, hopefully finding that perfect balance between community and individual freedom.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support, and like the Ancient Serpent, so too may you endure!!!

Satanism / On the question of if CoS is LHP:
« on: June 19, 2018, 10:17:55 pm »
I just read this in one of Mr. Gilmore's articles and found it rather finalizing. He states:

"Satanists view themselves as animals who are part of Nature (7th Satanic Statement: “Satan represents man as just another animal,...” ), and see any concept positing something existing outside of nature as being a spiritual delusion."

I don't think I've seen many quotes so blatantly un-LHP and pro-RHP. First, anyone who disagrees is assumed to be delusional or "bad." Second, LaVeyan Satanism goes out of it's way to DEBASE things like human consciousness and will, which it entirely RHP. Not to mention we see him upholding the statements like you'd expect in Catholic Church. With Gilmore himself saying this, and all the love to my CoS friends in the world, I have to say this kind of conclusively settles the debate.

Satanism / St. Peter's Cross (the inverted cross)
« on: June 12, 2018, 08:55:54 pm »
So esoteric LHP groups have always recognized the inverted cross as a Christian symbol, I sign that one is not even worthy to die like Christ. Literally as rhp as it gets.

However, I recently heard that Peter made no such choice, that he was crucified upside down to mock the crucification and that the church spun it in their favor (something we know they literally constantly do).

Does anyone know which is the true history and symbolism of the inverted cross?

Lounge / Apparently I'm the guy who asks for tattoo help now lol
« on: June 01, 2018, 04:01:04 pm »
So I've never really done this as I have always chosen my own tats on my own input. Technically I still am. I am getting a tattoo of Draco on my inner forearm and was thinking about Ursa Major too. Ursa is more specific to set after all. But the way the constellations are and my skinny arm, that's a way bigger tattoo than I was planning for inner arm.

I guess this could equally be in the LHP section but will only having Draco somehow diminish the symbolism? I mean for gods sakes I have a tattoo of Set himself, I must be over thinking it. Plus one constellations is a much simpler, more pristine design.

Think I answered my own question...

General LHP Discussion / Suicide and Mind-Body Dualism
« on: May 30, 2018, 11:45:17 pm »
Briefly speaking, is suicide another piece of evidence to prove mind-body Dualism? It's literally the conscious self acting against every single biological urge in their body. Even after suicide is in progress the body fights, like puking up pills or trying to get air while dangling from a noose.

General LHP Discussion / Personal physical accomplishment
« on: May 18, 2018, 02:53:48 am »
As many know I'm not a physically fit person, and do battle with my body over ibs, spinal fusions, nerve damage, and more. I've basically never even been to a gym. So was not happy when my bosses bosses boss wanted me to work out with a client as part of one of our teen programs. I dreaded it to say the least.

But I fucking loved it, and it strengthened the connection between the client and I. I actually plan to go weekly depending on how I feel tomorrow. I'm proud to say I was able to:

Box jump like 4+ feet x10
Dead lift 135 x15
Bench 75 x15
Leg lifts x90
Pull ups x like 5 lol

It doesn't surprise me in the least that today is the same day I engaged on a new quest of greater black magic as explained in my other thread.

Xeper!

Setianism / New Experiment
« on: May 17, 2018, 09:32:34 pm »
As many here know I am not really big on your normal rituals. I don't even have a specific altar set aside anymore, it's just scattered through our home. To me, rituals tend to be large-scale, with conscious intent and set over varying lengths of time. It also, strangely enough, tends to come with a certain layout of necklace(s). When I was a Thelemite I wore a Uni. Hex., when I was a Luciferian I wore a Scarab, when I became Setian I got a Was Scepter, etc. So anyways...

I did the self initiation ritual from 7 faces of darkness this morning before my pentagram, including the "casual chat with Set" aspect. I was really taken with this quote:

"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."

I've decided to make this the basis of my practice, at least for now. I added my ankh and Djed pillar to my was scepter necklace and will be constantly reminding myself of this phrase. To me this is more balanced and beautiful than the path I have been walking, and yet still distinctly LHP. I'm trying to move away from the anti-Osirian views of traditional Setianism and open up my options a bit. For example, Osiris as stability is perfectly in keeping with his negative aspect of stagnation and stasis. I also am seeing the negative sides of Set much more, such as in the existential and religious crisis I have been undergoing, which would not occur without the Gift of Set. It's time to become a bit more balanced and stable, I know who I am at heart even on my worst days and I need to bring that to the surface.

Science / Lovecraft was right!!!

“The transformative genes leading from the consensus ancestral Nautilus to the common Cuttlefish to Squid to the common are not easily to be found in any pre-existing life form – it is plausible then to suggest they seem to be borrowed from a far distant “future” in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the cosmos at large.

“One plausible explanation, in our view, is that the new genes are likely new extraterrestrial imports to Earth - most plausibly as an already coherent group of functioning genes within (say) cryopreserved and matrix protected fertilized Octopus eggs.

“Thus the possibility that cryopreserved Squid and/or Octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred million years ago should not be discounted as that would be a parsimonious cosmic explanation for the Octopus' sudden emergence on Earth circa 270 million years ago.”

Science / The Serpent Mound
« on: May 12, 2018, 01:36:33 am »
Did you guys and gals ever hear about this?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_Mound

"An eight-member team led by archaeologist William F Romain has been published in the Journal of Archaeological Science.[12][13] The team found much older charcoal samples in less-damaged sections of the mound. The investigators conjecture that the mound was originally built between 381 BC and 44 BC, with a mean date of 321 BC. They explain the more recent charcoal found in the 1990s as likely the result of a "repair" effort by Indians around 1070 AD, when the mound would already have been suffering from natural degradation.[5]

"If the Serpent Mound were designed to sight both solar and lunar arrays, it would be significant as the consolidation of astronomical knowledge into a single symbol. The head of the serpent is aligned to the summer solstice sunset and the coils also may point to the winter solstice sunrise and the equinox sunrise.[16]"
