In the modern day the importance of Set to the Egyptians is largely unknown if not outright ignored and suppressed. The author's previous book, "Behold: The Prince of Darkness", looked into the history of Set to an extent, but it was not the sole focus of the text. Here the author covers the great kings of Egypt who honored Set above all: Peribsen, Khasekhemwy, Horemheb, Ramesses I, Seti I, Ramesses II, Setnakhte, and Ramesses III. He investigates what made these kings "Setian", how they inspire the Left Hand Path and Setian tradition today, and the important roles they played in Egyptian history. It will quickly become clear to the objective reader that the role of Set was much greater than most modern traditions and conservative academics are willing to admit, and that the Setian tradition of today was not invented in 1975, but is the constant rediscovery of ancient traditions.

I basically get spammed with free articles on LHP academia. Couldn't keep up to save my life. I'm sure there's many other topics and papers there :) all free!

Other Religions / What causes atheists to ...
« on: August 09, 2019, 11:03:43 pm »
What is it about atheism that leads people to think they don't need refutations to reject something? What is it about atheism that causes special pleading of human experience? What is it about atheism that makes one reject the most basic foundations of logic like self existence and the law of Identity? Why does atheism appear to consistently breed "logic" that relies on insults and personal attacks rather than actual evidence or philosophy? And what has given atheists the idea that you can have a worldview but not need to have defense for it?

We're discussing consistent observations over a decade here, multiple forums and in person, young atheists to professional philosopher atheists. Nor would I claim this is every atheist, but certainly a very large majority of what have been called "new atheism". So what is it about atheism that causes this so often? Is it just that it's more an emotional reaction more than anything in most cases?

This symbol makes me think of the two pole stars, Thuban and Polaris, magically connected (via the trapezoid) to bring the Stellar tradition into the modern world. Like the O.S. statement says:

"The Order of the Serpent hopes to remanifest this ancient, Pre-Solar metaphysics in the modern day - within the 21st century."

Many people try to avoid or repress the negative emotions like anger, envy, and jealousy, because they can take over your mind and influence you into negative behavior. However, some people get some sort of satisfaction from these emotions, in spite of the negative influence they have on our minds. Repressing these emotions can lead to extreme behavior when they finally do surface, so repression is not a satisfactory option. Satisfying these emotions as they arise makes you a slave to them with only short term satisfaction and often with long term problems that will have to be cleared up. So is there another way of dealing with the wrathful emotions? Indeed, there is.

Satanism / Satanic Sinners
« on: July 18, 2019, 07:46:14 pm »
Satanic Sin CoS Violations

Generally when I'm trying to stop arguing about an idea I like to gather my thoughts in the most straight forward way possible and put a final opinion on the matter. So if I'm gonna stop caring about this CoS shit, might as well clean my system!

>Stupidity - The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.

People believe whatever they are told, whatever makes them feel better about their lives and path. Things like "Satanism magically came into existence in 1966 and never existed before!" Or "Anton LaVey was totally a crime scene photographer despite objectively not being one!" "Anton worked for the circus despite the fact that he didn't!" "LaVey totally didn't abuse his wife and pet lion and daughter, it's a big conspiracy!" Good thing it's not painful folks...

>Pretentiousness: Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn’t applying the cardinal rules of Lesser Magic. On equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the money in circulation these days. Everyone’s made to feel like a big shot, whether they can come up with the goods or not.

Everyone including people like Peter Gilmore and Blanch Barton who've done literally jack shit but ride coattails to get notoriety. It's funny how this talks about lining pockets when that's literally what the entire life of post-75 CoS amounts to.

>Solipsism - Can be very dangerous for Satanists. Projecting your reactions, responses and sensibilities onto someone who is probably far less attuned than you are. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration, courtesy and respect that you naturally give them. They won’t. Instead, Satanists must strive to apply the dictum of “Do unto others as they do unto you.” It’s work for most of us and requires constant vigilance lest you slip into a comfortable illusion of everyone being like you. As has been said, certain utopias would be ideal in a nation of philosophers, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, from a Machiavellian standpoint) we are far from that point.

And yet CoS is a hive mind of identical minded individuals who categorize everyone else into a single group of non-Laveyan Satanists. It literally rejects reality in favor of it own unique delusion, a group solipsism if you will.

>Self-deceit - It’s in the “Nine Satanic Statements” but deserves to be repeated here. Another cardinal sin. We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time self-deceit should be entered into is when it’s fun, and with awareness. But then, it’s not self-deceit!

Sacred cows like The Satanic Bible? Or CoS being the only form of Satanism? Or the life long hierarchy of it's dogmatic leaders? Roles we are expected like playing a Magus without earning it? Like basing our worth off material wealth? Like getting a nice Twitter feed for the masses going? The CoS would not exist without self deceit.

> Herd Conformity- That’s obvious from a Satanic stance. It’s all right to conform to a person’s wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master wisely instead of being enslaved by the whims of the many.

Bye CoS, can't exist anymore :(

> Lack of Perspective - Again, this one can lead to a lot of pain for a Satanist. You must never lose sight of who and what you are, and what a threat you can be, by your very existence. We are making history right now, every day. Always keep the wider historical and social picture in mind. That is an important key to both Lesser and Greater Magic. See the patterns and fit things together as you want the pieces to fall into place. Do not be swayed by herd constraints—know that you are working on another level entirely from the rest of the world.

"We are making history every day" lol. More self delusion. Maybe TST could try to convince us of that but CoS has been irrelevant for decades. Hell they had to resort to a fluffy Twitter feed just so the masses can accept them more. Because Twitter isn't a herd constraint ;)

> Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies - Be aware that this is one of the keys to brainwashing people into accepting something new and different, when in reality it’s something that was once widely accepted but is now presented in a new package. We are expected to rave about the genius of the creator and forget the original. This makes for a disposable society.

We've covered this, CoS is disposable in part because they forget past orthodoxies, even the very satanic traditions they descend and stole from! "We were first!" they shriek while begging for recognition and acceptance from the mundane. They swallow Laveys false history not just with sugar but the spoon itself, rave about his genius when half his book was stolen and half his works ghost written.

> Counterproductive Pride - That first word is important. Pride is great up to the point you begin to throw out the baby with the bathwater. The rule of Satanism is: if it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, when you’ve painted yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, I’m sorry, I made a mistake, I wish we could compromise somehow, then do it.

Looks like you owe an apology, CoS.

> Lack of Aesthetics - This is the physical application of the Balance Factor. Aesthetics is important in Lesser Magic and should be cultivated. It is obvious that no one can collect any money off classical standards of beauty and form most of the time so they are discouraged in a consumer society, but an eye for beauty, for balance, is an essential Satanic tool and must be applied for greatest magical effectiveness. It’s not what’s supposed to be pleasing—it’s what is. Aesthetics is a personal thing, reflective of one’s own nature, but there are universally pleasing and harmonious configurations that should not be denied.

Hey, 1/9 ain't bad right?

Announcements / Introducing the Ophidic Society of Meskhetyu

Ophidic Society of Meskhetyu

The Ophidic Society of Meskhetyu (OSM) is an arm of the Order of the Serpent (O.S.), an Esoteric, Left Hand Path organization dedicated to the accumulation and preservation of the knowledge and undefiled wisdom of the Prince/ss of Darkness. The OSM will specifically be geared towards promoting and maintaining a PDF library of O.S. materials. To start this will be individual articles from previous instillations of The Imperishable Star and other minor articles that have gone unpublished simply due to a lack of medium. This will allow more specific access to and sharing of information on the Esoteric Left Hand Path.

Moving forward, the goal will be similar to that of The Imperishable Star, the O.S. newsletter – producing and sharing material by LHPers, members of the Order or not, for free and for all interested parties. Nothing will be locked behind pay walls or initiatory degrees, and anything which comes out as a hard copy from the O.S. directly will also be available for free through the OSM. The only change will (hopefully!) be a more constant flow of production due to individual articles rather than large newsletters.

If you are interested in working with the Order of the Serpent and Ophidic Society of Meskhetyu to create and share Esoteric Left Hand Path knowledge and wisdom, please contact Xepera maSet, Onyx, and Setamontet on the O.S. forums ( ) or at . Membership to the Order of the Serpent not required.

We continue to thank you for your support of the Order of the Serpent in our endeavors!
The path of Darkness leads to enlightenment! Like the Ancient Serpent so too may your name endure!
