Satanism / Simulation Hypothesis
« on: April 12, 2019, 01:41:26 am »
https://www.simulation-argument.com/simulation.pdf

Greetings,

Above is a linked argument by Nick Bostrom who argues that we could be living in a complex computer simulation. A recent hypothesis has take new life amongst technologists in Silicon Valley, that we are living in a computer simulation.

"The universe is 13.8 billion years old, so any civilizations that may have arisen throughout the cosmos have had loads and loads of time to hone their technological know-how, the SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk explained early this morning (Sept. 7) during a long, wide-ranging and very entertaining appearance on comedian Joe Rogan's popular podcast"

The idea, made popular by the Matrix films by the Wachowski Brothers, has some serious truth to it, outside of the exhaustive mysticism that many of us LHP practitioners tend to reject.

And yet...

Video Games, Films, and VR have developed graphics that have become harder and harder to distinguish from what appears to be "real life." Thus, can we be so sure that have not done this before? It would seem crude to say that we are in a somewhat "real" MMORPG, but we not only have experience but we learn and grow from those experiences.

How does this play into a magical practice? Or why there are some who value this potential concept and others do not? In the fictitious story of Harry Potter there are muggles and there are magical oriented people. The muggles cannot see nor can they understand the bigger picture behind magic. Some of the even hostile to the idea. When it comes to programming there are some who see the GUI (Guided User Interface) and there are some who seem the underlying programming that gives life and functionality to that GUI. Some passionately deny that there is any underlying construct, that there is only the GUI. The first group the pops into my head are the "New Atheists" like Dawkins or Hitchens. Just as passionate and evangelical as the Christians that give their rebellion it's much needed fuel.

Magic has often been referred to as a "mental technology" it directs a potential non-local mind toward larger conceptualizations. Is it possible that magic could be a "hack" to the underlying construct which causes PSI phenomena? Or that it directs a non-local mind, within the construct, toward more opportunistic situations? While the Simulation Hypothesis is just that, a hypothesis I am curious if the existence of PSI phenomena and UFO phenomena could have something to do with the possibility of a simulation.

The Map is not the Territory. However, this could be a very useful map!

Satanism / Re: Can one worship Satan and other pantheons?
« on: March 10, 2019, 04:09:17 pm »
The real question should be

Quote
Why would one want to worship Satan?

The colloquial concept of worship is that of slaves. In the western world the notion of worship is pretty cut and dry. If Satan is adversarial to slave mentalities then he would not demand any slave-like worship. Quite the opposite actually! Satan would demand study, the empowerment of humankind via knowledge and understanding. Even the Romantic image of Satan in Milton's Paradise Lost: "For it is better to Reign in Hell, than to Serve in Heaven."

Satan wouldn't take the same stand as the gods of the Right Hand Path who demand slavish worship while hiding behind false concepts like charity, altruism, and holiness.

worship (verb)
wor·​ship | \ ˈwər-shəp also ˈwȯr-  \
worshipped also worshiped; worshipping also worshiping
Definition of worship (Entry 1 of 2)
transitive verb
1 : to honor or show reverence for as a divine being or supernatural power
2 : to regard with great or extravagant respect, honor, or devotion
a celebrity worshipped by her fans


Referenced from: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/worship

I do not accept Satan as a supernatural power or deity. Since there is a lack of evidence of supernatural deities in our world. Experience of something Super-normal is one thing, supernatural is something very different.

The real question is: Why would the rebel against Tyrant Deities (which probably don't exist) would even want to be worshiped the way those deities were?

No matter which way you slice it the path leads to Supernatural Madness. Inverse Christianity isn't LHP at all. It's just really Goth RHP. 

Worship of Satan is very much missing the greater point.

Satanism / Re: What has Satanism done for your life?
« on: February 21, 2019, 01:42:54 pm »
What has Satanism done for me?

I feel this is a question that most should ask, often. At least those that are Satanists. For myself Satanism gives practical solutions or beneficial outcomes for life. Even my work in the Temple, despite all the experimentation with PSI and Supernormal work the outcomes have to have a foundation in results, real results.

I read TSB when I was 20, since then I have practiced workings from that and much of TSR, my work in the ToV, crafted my rituals, experimented with material from Hermetic Magic by Dr. Flowers, and even played with Chaos Magic for awhile. It's been fun.

What has Satanism Done For Me:

The ultimate goal? It's made me happy. Emotions aren't everything, however if you consider all the reasons why you want to accomplish something through magic, anything, it's to be happier. If it's a working for a lover, money or a better job, to punish an enemy for wronging you, or to expand your sense of perception. All of those things are done to become a happier person. This is why I mention getting away from "Phase One" walking around with a chip on your shoulder, about the world, is nothing more than carrying around a self defeating set of beliefs. It burns up useful energy that you could be putting in to something that could dramatically change your World.

I could sit here and list off my achievements. I mean, I went from being a lowly EMT in Springfield, Ohio (dumpster fire of a city) to running an Ambulance Company in Dayton, being told by 5 different companies throughout my career that I was the best Paramedic they ever had. They could be bull-shiting me, but for myself? That's a win. I make more than triple now than what I made when I started. I am finishing University, transformed my health and body through weightlifting and exercise. Discovered a load of resentment in myself from my past, which I was able to cut through and surmount. All of this I credit my Greater and Lesser magic. Most of these achievements are most of the goals I have listed in the ritual chamber.

I have accomplished so much that I actually spend less time in the Ritual Chamber and more time putting my Will into other tasks that contribute to my greater goals. Now I go into Communion for more Initiatory goals. Going with myself to discover the Inner most Self and to evolve that aspect.

However, all of this has lead to a very simple outcome. I am happy. That's exactly why I originally sought all the goals and desires I have accomplished. That's what my initiatory practice contributes to, my happiness.

So, good question! The next one to ask is. Does your practice make you happy?

Satanism / Re: what does satan look like?
« on: February 21, 2019, 01:19:33 pm »
In one aspect of my practice the Prince of Darkness, or Dragon, is your Inner Most Self. What that looks like is for you to discover. It may not look like anything and worrying about what it "looks like" (rather than understanding what it is and what it can become) is, with all respect, missing the point.

symbols are there to get our minds in the right place. To anthropomorphize a symbol is to invite all sorts of misinterpretation.

Music / Complex Metal without the Lyrics
« on: February 21, 2019, 01:07:10 pm »
Years have passed since my "phase one" days where I needed to hear tons of Black Metal bands screeching about hurling Christians into spike pits or mowing Jesus down with a machine gun.  :|

Sidenote: The positively worst rap/crap song that is the musical culmination of Phase One Satanism is a "song" called Kill All Christians by SickTanick....Terrible.

At the same time I have grown close to Metal that has virtually no lyrics. The musicians celebrate the music and without worrying about lyrics they can develop much more technical guitar play and other musical elements can be added. I never lost my love for classical music, and some of that hate/death/black metal, but this new enjoyment of mine I hope you will enjoy!

General LHP Discussion / Re: Are humans inherently selfish?
« on: February 18, 2019, 04:51:51 pm »
To start, it’s best that one defines selfishness seperating it from a colloquial understanding. In social circles “selfish” really can be used for anything. Usually, used in situations where the person hurling that as an insult is the one being irrational and demanding. Selfishness as a term degrades into any action taken that someone else doesn’t agree with, or isn’t directly benefiting them (ironic, no?)

Similar to how “open-mindedness” can simply mean “agree with me.” Selfishness is an umbrella term misunderstood and misused in social environments. It is the antithesis of religions that demand almost suicidal self sacrifice. Jesus’s death on the Cross, Abraham’s son willing to be slaughtered for sacrifice, Muslim martyrs willing to blow them selves up along with a few infidels. Consider the enforced altruism of the welfare state. One faces the threat of violence is he/she is unwilling to sacrifice financially for what the State deems meritous.

Properly defined selfishness or Tak Kak’s term Selfi-ness or Rand’s rational self interest is a more useful term.

A totally selfless act would be absurd as the person doing it would have no knowledge of the act.

Altruism posits that your life isn’t yours. That it’s to be mortgaged out to others. Thus, to live for your self (selfishness) is evil and egocentric. Why? Because you’re not making yourself a willing sacrifice for the herd. You’re refusing to be fodder for the social cannon. You have enough respect to seek self preservation than to see merit in being disposable for abstract social principles. The herd hates this because of an inherent weakness. Thus to destabilize the strong they fight viciously for “equality.” It may appear honorable, however they don’t seek equality, they hide behind it to take what isn’t theirs. And if you fight them? Well, your an evil selfish person who doesn’t want people to be equal. See how that works?

Now, I’m not saying that an immature, petty and childish form of selfishness is reasonable. Clearly it isn’t. Children have an irrational selfishness due to their ignorance.

Mutual aid is one thing, if both parties benefit. Altruism would reject this wholesale and say that to desire a mutual benefit is evil or morally wrong. This because, Altruism demands that man must be a sacrifice. This pairs up well with heaven. If I sacrifice now, my reward will be better than all of you who didn’t (nana nana boo boo!). However when there’s no heaven or hope for compounded interest on your altruistic merits, you are merely a disposable utility to be consumed by a collectivist consciousness. Maybe for my Setian friends that would be Harwer, Collectivist Consciousness.

The true irrational selfishness is in others who demand you be a sacrifice
For their whims and desires. They call it “evil” this is simply you choosing to take hold of your life and not give it away on a whim.

Christianity and Imperialism murders any culture it comes into contact with... if it can. A combination of force, exploitation and propaganda to convert to the slave religion (Ephesians 6:5-6). Those verses define why Christianity is used as an Imperialist tool. If you can convince the population to convert to better survive, you then brainwash them for economic exploitation and the death spiral of the native culture starts. It's insidious, because even when it doesn't work, Christianity has historically resorted to outright violence and murder.

It’s not to say that Christianity hasnt been violent in the past. The Crusades were murderous primarily toward the Muslims. Who have this tendency (just like a “sibling” religion) to tread onto owned land and claim it as their own. Even now the force of extreme Islamic invasion is much more of a threat than some Bible thumping Conservatives. Islamists and Jihadism is more violent now than most Christian groups in the US. Germany is suffering pretty bad due to extremist Islam.

Christians get martyred when they show up in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Muslims get “martyred” when they blow up a coffee shop of innocent Jews. One is much more of a threat than the other. Lol

One of the possible contributors to Satanic heritage was the Knights Templar, who were crusaders, exposed to world religions and occult practices.

If we focus too much on Christians we will won’t notice the Muslims massing on our borders.

I'm sure his intensions were good, but I mean you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. There's more important things to do, or concern one's Self with, then worry about another missionary getting their ass roasted by an indigenous tribe. Obviously they didn't want them there to begin with. I don't think it really has anything to do with Christianity, this guy could have be a rouge Scientologist trying to make the tribe leader OT8, or an evangelical atheist (and his tasty fedora) coming on land to tell them how ignorant they are for worshiping their tribal god, because Richard Dawkins...blah blah blah. He still would have faced a hail of arrows and spears.

Satanism / Re: "Satanism" cheat sheet
« on: November 30, 2018, 12:46:35 pm »
    As a Satanist I always looked at Atheistic Satanism similar to Buddhism (which I was, prior to Satanism) original authentic Buddhist philosophy asserted no god's to be worshipped, it rejected the soul. It's possible they could exist, probably not, since if one were to develop attachment to the idea of saviors and there was none then you would suffer! (1 of 4 Noble Truths) also god's weren't a requirement on one's pursuit to Enlightenment. Even in the sect of Buddhism I practiced, Nichiren Buddhism, with its emphasis on the Lotus Sutra as the King of Sutras, there was no need of a god. There was a "Mystic" Law, or Dharma one manifested in one's own self through the recitation of the Sutras and Mantra chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. As the Law was recognized as one's own life, the seeds of Buddhahood would blossom and the person's life would transform, from the inside outward.

    Consider Gilmore's statement from the Satanic Scriptures: "Satan is a force tapped at Will in the Satanist" Or Anton LaVey saying that Satan is the: "essence that dwells within one's self, Satan is Prometheus."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt0RVBRyJWU

What could this mean? I don't know. However, I can relate to a small extent.

    Conceptually, the notion of Super-natural is rejected, since nothing could possibly be perceived as being outside of nature. Even super-powerful, PSI mastering extra-terrestrials with ultra silent ships that could make themselves look like "gods" (consider, Childhood's End) are still apart of nature, but their presence will decimate what the public considers a "normal course of events." Then again can human beings really understand "nothingness" the absence of any perceivable thing?

    Using natural, but peculiar, methods like philosophy, art, and math to assert something that transcends those very things seems counterproductive. However,  discovering something that could greatly move beyond our conceptualizations of Normal, is a different story.

    Usually, Satanism also rejects standard, off-the-shelf spirituality as well since this tends to reject the reasonable solutions for pipe dreams, and forced hallucinations about magic powers. This doesn't mean that Satanists are just pretending (maybe some do, and that's on them.) Spirit-ualism asserts spirits. Could there be spirits? Maybe, depending on how you define it, of course. Spiritualists jumped head first into a lot of toys and games spurred by the fear of death, and the desperate need for there to be an afterlife. So much so, they were trying to contact the dead with, what amounts today as a children's board game. Ouija.

    This is what Satanism, IMO, seeks to avoid. The Satanic Temple is merely a pathetic joke, a political prankster group that uses Satanic imagery to push a very violent and cult like dedication to extreme leftists politics. Despite their rules about being open minded to member's political views, they tend to dictate a lot oof political positions directly to their members and are only fueled by politics (one google search will easily reveal this)

    Recently, an individual posted, on his blog, about leaving the TST behind (1 of many testimonies, of course) showing social posts threatening to attack and bring physical harm to him for just not outright hating the current sitting President.

https://dsblackmetal.tumblr.com/post/180390282677/why-i-left-the-satanic-temple?fbclid=IwAR3vr0B1k7YRF0RZxTOBdJzTli936SVG2Ofvb0QLlZFRByCuwSilSNALZdI

    Also, they seem to not be very strong on the critical thinking skills. Name Calling isn't a method of logic, rather social primacy. They don't fully believe that "Trump is Hitler" they are staying loyal for social reasons, not psychological ones. If they divert, the same superstorm that has been rained down on other's social media accounts will be done to them, so they stay within the monkey tribe and keep to their own bananas. Plainly put, they're not Satanists, their political tools and ignorant trolls.
