General LHP Discussion / Re: V.K. Jehannum on Set
« on: Today at 03:31:25 am »
VK has an affinity for Judaic Mysticism and therefore a penchant for Abrahamic mythology. The rituals surrounding the overthrow of Apophis represented the eternal struggle between good and evil, order and chaos, light and darkness, and relied upon the daily attention and efforts of human beings to succeed. Humanity, then, was not just a passive recipient of the gifts of the gods but a vital component in the operation of the universe.

This understanding was maintained, and these rituals observed, until the rise of Christianity in the 4th century CE. At this time, the old model of humanity as co-workers with the gods was replaced by a new one in which human beings were fallen creatures, unworthy of their deity, and utterly dependent upon their god's son and his sacrifice for their salvation. Humans were now considered recipients of a gift they had not earned and did not deserve, and the sun lost its distinct personality and purpose to become another of the Christian god's creations. Apophis, however, would live on in Christian iconography and mythology, merged with other deities such as Set and the benign serpent Sata, as the adversary of God, Satan, who also worked tirelessly to overturn divine order and bring chaos.

Warning! Looong . . .

The general impression of Set as "Osiris' evil brother" is the result of the influence of Plutarch's Moralia, which represented the [local, latter-day] Osiris/Isis/Horus cult as characteristic of Egyptian religion generally. This was not the case; various areas (Nomes) of Egypt had their own triads of neteru.

No records of the ancient Priesthood of Set survived first the Osirian persecution and later the more general vandalism of the Christian/Islamic eras. We know of it only by its reflection, both in the character of Set as he was portrayed symbolically and mythologically and in the nature of Egyptian priesthoods in general.

Together with the Priesthood of Horus [the Elder], that of Set was the oldest of the Egyptian priesthoods. If we date it to the earliest predynastic images of Set found by archæologists, we can establish an origin of at least 3200 BCE. Working with the Egyptians’ own astronomically-based records (#2F), we may approximate 5000 BCE. If we are to assume the final eclipse of the Priesthood at the end of the XIX-XX [Setian] Dynasties ca. 1085 BCE, we are looking at an institution which existed at least two thousand and possibly as many as four thousand years. “In the early dynasties,” observes Budge:

Originally Posted By: Wallis Budge, The Book of the Dead   
Set was a beneficent god, and one whose favor was sought after by the living and by the dead, and so late as the XIX Dynasty kings delighted to call themselves “Beloved of Set”. After the cult of Osiris was firmly established and this god was the “great god” of all Egypt, it became the fashion to regard Set as the origin of all evil, and his statues and images were so effectively destroyed that only a few which have escaped by accident have come down to us.

In The Dawn of Astronomy Sir Norman Lockyer suggests that “‘Set’ seems to have been a generic name applied to the northern (circumpolar) constellations, perhaps because Set = darkness, and these stars, being always visible in the night, may have in time typified it. Since the northern constellations were symbolized by the name of Set, the god of darkness, we should take Set-Horus to mean that the stars in the Dragon (Draco) were rising at sunrise.” To support his theory, Lockyer cites the following inscription from royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings:

Quote:
The constellation of the Thigh appears at the late rising. When this constellation is in the middle of the heavens, having come to the south where [the constellation Orion] lies, the other stars are proceeding to the western horizon. Regarding the Thigh: It is the Thigh of Set; while it is seen in the northern heavens, there is a band [constellation] to the two in the shape of a great bronze chain.

Lockyer concludes that the constellation Draco, and in particular the star at its head (Gamma Draconis), represented Set. If indeed a single star were so regarded, it was probably Alpha Draconis (or Thuban), the Polar Star at the beginning of the Egyptian civilization. Due to the Precession of the Equinoxes, Alpha Draconis will return to the celestial pole at approximately 24000 CE.

Center of the original Priesthood of Set was PaMat-et, capital of the ancient Egyptian XIX Uab Nome. It was called Oxyrhynchus by the Greeks. It is located in Upper Egypt at Latitude 28.5N, Longitude 30.8E. Other cities which were centers of the Setian Priesthood were Ombos at 24.5N, 32.9E and Tanis at 31N, 31.9E in Lower Egypt.

As a neter of darkness and night, Set was the complement to Horus (Hor - neter of the Sun and daylight) in predynastic times. So integral was this relationship that the heads of the two neteru were frequently shown on a single body (hieroglyphic name Hrwyfy “He with the Two Faces”). With regard to the annual cycle, Horus was thought to govern the waxing of the Sun from the South Solstice, while Set governed the waning of the Sun from the North Solstice.

Again according to conventional archæology, it was in the pre-dynastic Gerzean period (commencing about 3600 BCE) that the first communities of the future Egyptian nation came into existence. The great war of unification commenced in approximately 3400 BCE. After more than two centuries of intermittent conflict between Upper and Lower Egypt, the land was finally united under Menes (or Narmer), the first pharaoh of the I Dynasty.

Together the two primeval neteru - Horus and Set - then symbolized the unity and wholeness of the Egyptian nation: Horus as the neter of the north (Lower Egypt) and Set as the neter of the south (Upper Egypt). This union was represented on monuments by the ritual gesture of samtaui, showing Horus and Set binding the heraldic plants of Upper and Lower Egypt around the stem of an AnX, symbol of divine life.

The roles of Horus and Set as the original state neteru of Egypt were further emphasized by the pharaohs’ famous Double Crown (SeXet), being a composite of the Red Crown of Horus (Teser) and the White Crown of Set (Het/“Great One of Spells”). And the Tcham sceptre, with the head and forked tail of Set, became a symbol of power and authority for neteru and pharaohs alike.

Horus was later adopted into the Osirian mythos as the “son of Osiris and Isis”. Egyptologists generally distinguish the original and the corruption by the terms “Horus the Elder” and “Horus the Younger” respectively. HarWer is a form of Horus the Elder combined with Wer (“The Great God”), a transcendent neter of light. The Sun and the Moon were said to be the right and left eyes of HarWer, known as the Udjat (“Uræus” in Greek). At the same time the Udjat was also considered to partake of the essence of Set. Mounted both on the SeXet and on other national crowns and headgear, the Udjat became another symbol of the pharaoh.

I always get a kick out of VK! Although, I haven't heard the theory of Apep/Apophis and Set as being one and the same. From my knowledge, Set was a defender of Ra and enemy of Apep. But hey . . . we're making this up as we go along!

Setianism / Re: Old Man Aquino: No Chill
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:57:14 pm »
For those of you not in the know, I am Oxus on the 600C (for what its worth)
That said, I am also ex-Temple of Set of whom Ipsissimus Webb acted as my priest (I count myself extremely fortunate in that respect). To this day I enjoy a personal contact with Dr. Aquino, he has been very considerate and helpful throughout the years to me. I highly recommend the ToS as an Initiatory school of the LHP. As for Dr. Aquino, I cannot say enough good things about him, in my opinion there has not been a greater Magus of the LHP than He.

A good book on this subject as well is Äsruþr Cyneaþsson's 'The Left-hand of Odin' which explores Odin as an archetypal god of the left-hand path.

Luciferianism / Re: I love cubes!!!!
« on: October 05, 2018, 01:51:03 am »
Really consider this: "You came into a discussion on Luciferianism: you lost me at God."

The mind that encouraged you to do a meaningless thing like this which leads purely to conflict is the mind of your predator.

The Aztects, Native Americans, Egyptians, Mayans and countless other civilizations were aware that we have a predator that has given us it's own mind, that acts as the I AM which changes the mind of AM or disagrees with it.

The Mind is absolute, you cannot think of a thought that will surprise you and by virtue of this quality you cannot have a fluent conversation with your own self regardless of how the experience may feel or be interpreted.

The force that drives desire to destroy subjugate and harm others is a predatory desire that is below our Divine nature and is the Animal nature of our predator.

There are two wolves within the hearts of man.

One desires negative energy, pain and the destruction and torture of Humans.

To tear apart, bite and rip the flesh of Humans while they scream for absolution from God may bring pleasure to tighten the jaw of a person operating under this influence and bring them into a fanatical state of ripping biting and tearing.

The other wolf desires positive energy that accelerates in perpetuity and not a finite resource, our capacity to love and care about other people and to contemplate their well being.
I'm not going to pretend I have any idea what you are going on about, but it certainly is entertaining. I'll not interrupt your manic flow again. :rolleyes:

Mercuræn Luciferianism / On Summoning the Demonic
« on: September 21, 2018, 10:17:17 am »
To all these 'wizards' who fall out of bed and accidentally conjure Amdusias, or mutter a few spooky words and poof there's Alloces sitting high upon his steed! I personally do not buy it and in some ways find it offensive to those of us who take this seriously. A brief talk with someone like Jake Stratton Kent, who is an expert on this stuff, will bring you to your senses as to the monumental amount of preparation and grueling work that is needed to properly instill the specifics of the spirit being conjured into one's psyche, the long arduous repetitive process of ritually dis-inhibiting the temporal lobe (particularly the left temporoparietal junction), and then creating the appropriate platform for which to experience this spirit.


Aleister Crowley, had at the time, a unique view of the Goetic demons. Instead of actual entities, he saw them as aspects of a person’s mind. He believed one could control these aspects through ritual. By commanding a specific demon, one would be able to tap into a part of the subconscious and harness it’s attributes.

Back in the 'old' days (Neolithic to be exact) they drilled holes in your skull to let out the demons, this is called Trepanning. Funny thing they weren't that far off base as the brain's temporal lobe is the location of the keyhole or entry point to the release of "referenced material" from other sections of the brain. This reference material comes in the form of "psychic" or "spiritual" phenomena, out-of-body and near-death experiences, alien abductions, past lives experiences, one's earlier repressed traumatic memories and the mystical or God experience . . . and seeing demons/angels.

Demonic "presences" are not surprising and in no way negatively reflects on the person having the experience. It is a normal and natural happening to a dis-inhibited temporal lobe, some institutionalized temporal lobe psychotics have daily communications with spiritual entities. Though, it is suggested that if you are experiencing these psycho-pathological disturbances in your normal everyday life, you might consider a psychiatric evaluation.

But, if we are purposely dis-inhibiting the temporal lobe, for instance during ritual work, then we may expect to experience an occasional visitor or two in our ritual chamber. Fortunately (or maybe, unfortunately) they can never materialize into the objective universe. If anyone has proof of physical manifestation I'm sure the entire world would be interested and you would stand to become not only the first person to evidence this but filthy rich . . . what are you waiting for?

When Swiss scientists electrically stimulated an epileptic patient’s brain, things got really spooky. The patient reported a shadow person sitting behind her, copying her every move. When she sat up, it also sat up. When she bent forward and grabbed her knees, it reached around her body and held her. The doctors then told her to read a card, but the shadow person tried to take it out of her hand. What happened was the scientists had stimulated the left temporoparietal junction, the part of the brain that defines the idea of self. By interfering with the area that helps us tell the difference between ourselves and others, the doctors screwed up the brain’s ability to understand its own body, thus leading to the creation of a copycat shadow person. Researchers are hoping this is the key to understanding why so many people, both schizophrenic and healthy, encounter shadow beings and other creatures like aliens.

If an ineffably powerful being came down and in whatever way proved beyond a doubt that they were the "Satan" of Christianity and wanted your allegiance in war against Yahweh and the heavens, would you join him?
In no way would I join the Satan of Christianity. The Christian Satan is the personification of the Judaic ha-satan (the adversary). In Christianity, Satan is the failed usurper of God who seduces humans into sin. To believe in/follow this Satan is to empower the Christian religion and allow it to define Satan while acknowledging that the Christian faith is true.
But isn't the thread's question, what if Christianity is at least semi-true?
I don't follow . . . "proved beyond a doubt" is a little more than "semi-true", and if that was the case then obviously the Christian Satan is everything they say He is.

Vampyrism / Vampyrism in H☿D
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:40:39 pm »
The creation of the Vampyre soul and Predatory Spiritualism has been a mainstay within the Herald of the Dawn since our inception. It involves the emulation of the Vampyre Archetype in order to better manipulate the objective universe thus enriching our Mercuræn lives while offering an efficient method for self-exploration and Individuation. The creation of the Vampyre within is a true Rite of Passage and a zenith of Internal Alchemy harmonizing mythology with neurotheology.

This may be attractive to those who already identify as vampires for it will harness and embed a chosen vampire archetype (Vampyre) further into your being. It is a stepping stone towards mastering Vampyre Majiq and transforming the human soul into the Vampyre soul. Those who identify as vampires will gain further strengths and those who do not will begin the transformation process.

You didn't have to delete anything, and I can put the posts back if you want.

I don't have many rules but do step in on occasion to tell people to chill out a little, as I don't want this place to devolve into a free-for-all. I prefer this approach to having a bunch of rules/regulations, moderators, temp-bans, and other bullshit.

Please continue the discussion if you all want, this isn't a huge deal.
I'm sorrry for the confusion, I didn't delete my posts because of your comment.
