Satanism / Quotes from The Synagogue of Satan (1898)
« on: April 23, 2019, 12:44:29 pm »
Part One.

- There are two gods eternally opposed, two creators and two rulers without beginning and without end.

- He tells his children, “Be poor in spirit, only then will you attain to my kingdom! Be more childish than children, destroy your own will, and follow me! Do not search for beginnings or endings because I alone am the entire past and the entire future.”

- The “bad” god is lawlessness, contrariness and visionary leaps into the future. He is the curiosity that seeks after the most hidden mysteries and the boundless titanic defiance that overthrows all laws and rules. He is the highest wisdom and the deepest depravity. He is the wildest pride and speechless humility; that is the only way for man to thwart the rules. He sanctifies the high and daring, the zealous and calls it heroism. He teaches man that there is no crime except that of going against one’s own nature. He sanctifies curiosity and calls it science; He lets man investigate into his own origins and calls it philosophy. He allows and teaches everything in the streambed of sexuality without bounds and calls it art.

- Learn to separate your soul from your body and I will carry you over thousands of miles, so that you may invisibly satisfy the desires of your heart. This is because your own well-being, your own development and future are my highest priority.

- I promise you everything. You shall see and receive everything if you go my way. But my way is difficult because perfection is difficult.” So spoke the “evil” god, so spoke the light bringer

- Satan also lived in Ahura-Mazda, the “good” god that taught Zarathustra the secrets of the Haoma-plant and in the Egyptian god, Thoth, Trimegistos, who wrote the secret knowledge down into 42 books and taught his chosen ones the important parts of the body

- He was the god of the instincts and carnal lust and was equally revered by the highest in spirit as well as the lowest. He was the inexhaustible source of life’s joy, the enthusiasm and the ecstasy

- The mysterious rapport that the naked soul of man had with the soul of ALL became completely separate from the brain and was declared Satanic

- The church would have loved it if everyone was castrated, the light extinguished, and the entire earth allowed to be consumed with acid rain. Its only desire, its burning request, was the ardent wish that the recently promised Day of Judgment would finally come at last

- The Christian death rage was directed against the heathen in blood thirsty laws, but the demon, the earth and nature, were indestructible. He went into the forests, hid himself in inaccessible grottos, collected his believers

- “Be poor in spirit and meek. Be obedient, be a follower, don’t think!” That was the highest law of religion for the imbecile masses. But the magician was proud despite all laws.

- “Christ is not able to do any more than I can; through virtue I also can become divine,” said Theodorus of Mopsuesta. The magician despised poverty of spirit, broke open all things secret and unraveled all mysteries.

- The magician was the same thing that Christ himself was, a defiant criminal of all the laws, a knowledgeable seer. He was a god, but much prouder than Christ.

- The non-imaginative brains of the church fathers and doctors that were so airy, naïve and spacey had no need to exert themselves when they could plagiarize.

- Satan triumphed over Christ, first as a means to frighten people in order to solidify the dominion of Christ. He became an almighty Lord which the world feared and sought to appease. You scarcely dared to breathe because it might let the evil spirit into your body.

- Satan multiplied himself a thousand fold. He became a theologian, went into the desert wastes and tortured the Holy fathers with awkward questions. He sowed thousands of doubts and thoughts into their souls. He went into the cloisters and inflamed the troubled brains of the monks with lewd images.

- But no matter how furiously the church battled the stronger Satan became.

- But sins are not really sins because they came from this god like the virtues that came from the other god, the indolent god who said, “Don’t exert yourselves, just follow me.”

- “Behold how good your God is! Don’t you see that he has damned you already and wants nothing more to do with you?” “If we are all damned, then there is no help for us. Alas! We might as well give ourselves entirely over to Satan. Christ shed his blood for the salvation of mankind. Heh! Salvation? What kind of salvation is this, where people have to eat each other, where the earth burns under our feet like a red hot iron and pestilence causes the flesh to fall from our bones?

- We spit on the salvation that is supposed to come after this earthly Hell. This future salvation is only a lie like everything else.

- The temple of God became the synagogue of Satan so the good fathers could make use of their filthiest passions to engender the most fertile of evils

- Woman, oh ever and again it was the woman, whom had to be destroyed within the church. With wild fanatical zeal the monk pope proclaimed the requirement of celibacy.

- Nature was raped; the church pushed the woman away in disgust as an unclean animal, a serpent of Satan, as eternal death incarnate.

- Then the church had to deal with logic and reason. Before this man had been forbidden to seek after the nature of God, now man was forbidden above all else to seek after the physical application of logic and reason.

- Satan—as philosopher, he who had created the most unfathomable philosophical systems of the orient, he who delighted in the poetic subtleties of Plato, he who split the most competent heads of the good God with his Manichean heresies, smiled evilly and was amused at this child’s play.

- The Slavic Satan, Chernebog or Diabol ,who ruled the world alongside the good god as an equal principle of evil, prepared himself for a journey to shake the foundations of the church with iron fists.

- Therefore Sin was not a debt; it was not the result of free will, but rather it was the work of the Black God. There was no sin, because evil actions were carried out as a result of the will of a God. There was no punishment for sin, eternal damnation was a nonsensical invention.

- The others, on the other hand, those who worshipped the Evil God, established secret organizations and celebrated their dark, carnal mysteries in forests, caves and on the tops of mountains.

- Namely The God of the Old Testament was despised. This God was an infamous evil spirit. He knew that Adam and Eve would die from the tree of knowledge, why then did he allow them to eat of it? He lied as well because our ancient ancestors did not in fact die! He was a common murderer. The guilty and the innocent both were allowed to miserably perish at Sodom and Gomorrah,

- The Christians said the Good God suffered death on earth upon the cross. That was a profanation. How could a God suffer, how could he come back to earth at all when the earth was already a part of him?

- The knights of the Holy Spirit murdered, hanged, burned and broke on the wheel, not just individuals, but hundreds and thousands of people.

- The church believed it had triumphed. But never had Satan felt more powerful than in that moment. Only the external form of his church had been destroyed, but what did the visible form mean to him? The people remained loyal to him in their hearts.

- An old allegory recounts how Satan once decided to take a wife in order to increase his kind. He had slept with Godlessness and conceived seven daughters with her. When these had grown up he married them off to mankind.

- Everything one could not expect to be given by God was now desired from Satan. God had withheld all his gifts for the afterlife; he delivered nothing but torments in this world.

- Magic came to unbelievable honor. Satan became popular and all the arts of sorcery enjoyed great favor. The witch-masters of every nation gathered in front of the palace of the king and conjured demons by which the king was possessed

- The people no longer feared Satan, they loved him. He was even imitated in people’s dress. Women wore horns on their heads and shamelessly showed their naked breasts and lasciviously revealed their bellies.

- Now, the time had come. In an instant the powerful sects of Satan worshippers rose up and blossomed mightily.

- Satan was the only true and sole governor of the earth and of mankind. He was no servant, no “ape” of God, as Irenaeus hatefully called him, but rather a God from the beginning of the cosmos whose sphere of power reached just as far as the white, indolent God,

- Satan was what was positive, the eternal in and of itself. He was the God of the brain; he governed the immeasurable realm of thoughts, which continually overthrew the law and shattered its tablets

- Everything which originated in greatness originated contrary to the good God’s law

- The people hated Christianity. It was only through the idea of Hell and its torments that they were restrained.

- Satan loved evil because he loved life. He hated good because he hated stagnation and inertia. He loved women, the eternal principle of evil, the originator of crime,

- To the Babylonians and Chaldeans the night-side of life, the hidden, the cosmic secret of decay, appeared as a woman—“Mylitta”—the goddess of ruinous lust and sexual excess. She induced people to song and dance, to lust, cruelty and murder. Among the Syrian tribes the adversarial, evil and destructive divinity was also a woman— Astarte. She was a goddess with a bull’s head and horns, the goddess of the destructiveness of war and the originator of every calamity.

- While the magician commanded the prince of darkness and was able to force him to reveal the most secret forces of nature, the witch always remained merely an obedient handmaiden who learned how

Oh :( this project. This is on hold, none of the makers have been able to make a high enough quality pendent. One pealed, one looked ghetto as hell, one was literally sideways, and one you couldn't see. Then I bought a house and furniture and an engagement ring and haven't had the money for the project. Started a new job today though so soon!

7th Satanic Sin:

"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."

Completely unrelated: you're not a true Pole if you're not called Pryzbyszewski.

Or at least Stansislaw (his first name)!

All information from “The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity” by Faxneld and Petersen, an objective academic work on Satanism.

- “There were, however, people who nourished an intense sympathy for the Devil much earlier [than LaVey… literary Satanists… polish decadent Stanislaw Pryzbyszewski… Satan was also popular among 19th century socialists as a symbol of revolt against capitalism and the bourgeoisie, with some Reds using the figure in a fairly sustained and consistent manner.” P. 5-6

- “The first person to construct an entire esoteric system, rather than a miniscule one, around Satan was the obscure Danish occultist Ben Kadosh.” P.6

- “The German 1920’s order Fraturnis Saturni was considerably more populated. It viewed Satan as an initiator and celebrated Luciferian masses…” p.6

- “Hall examines the conceptualization of the term ‘Satanist” in the writings of the Swedish theologian L. P. Gothus and finds… the concept did denote actual worshipers of the devil.” P.11

- “…conclude that actual “Satanists” probably did exist, but in a solitary and unsystematic sense.” P.11

- “… compelling argument for viewing the Romantic Satanists (or literary Satanists)… as a turning point in the history of modern religious Satanism... figures such as Godwin, Shelley, Vigny, and Carducci provided the necessary reevaluation of Satan as a positive trope of identification.” P.11

- “…Pryzbyszewski combined positive and negative understanding of Satan: the devil was both the paragon of progress, carnality, and liberty as well as a figure of pain, suffering, and destruction.” P.12

- “Pryzbyszewski can be seen as a pioneer of modern Satanism, expounding a stematic satanic worldview over a period of time…” p.12

- “Even before Anton LaVey founded the Church of Satan in 1966 there were Satanists.” P.19

- “In the early 20th century a handful of small groups of esoteric Satanists existed, and in the case of Maria de Naglowska such a cult in Paris gained some massmedia notoriety.” P.19

- “Satan came to be interpreted among the common folk as an occasionaly helpful figure, a spirit governing the untamed realm of sweden’s deep forests.” P.19

- “… several of the felons actually confessed to their judges, in a boasting and defiant matter, that they had indeed given themselves over to the Devil.” P.19

- “Satan as a god of nature, who can offer help with fishing and hunting, for example, is a recurring theme in the testimonies. The devil as a nature god is also present…” p.20

- “The romantics and the Satanist outlaws are similar in that Satan symbolized ideas or practices they embraced but which were condemned by the Christianity and conservative forces. Satan, thus, is employed as a tool for cultural critique…” p.20

- “Satanism seems to have been partly a way of mocking the established order but also a way to frighten their fellow men.

- “Pryzbyszewski actually called himself a Satanist and was fairly consistent and persistent in his lauding of the Devil.” P.20

- “Pryzbyszewski is the first sufficiently documented “real” Satanists.” P.20

- “…’folk Satanism’ opens up the possibility that the Romantics’ creative and disrespectful handling of Christian mythology may not have been as groundbreaking as it would seem.” P.21

- “… older material not available [in English] has largely been neglected by the producers of satanic ideology.” P.21

- “People occasionally thought of the Devil as an ambiguous trickster, a jester, or even a helper; that is, an entity more similar to the traditional nature spirits…” p.29

- “People did indeed believe the Devil was more powerful and helpful than God…” p29

- “Matt Larsson… proclaimed “God is no morel He is caught in Hell”…” p.29

- “He boasted of being able to talk to Satan, and that Satan had given him unnatural physical strength…” p29

- “… such blasphemous statements not only articulate a form of popular appropriation of the Devil as a potentially benevolent being… By having God and the Devil change places… Matt’s words suggest a conception of Satan as the ruler of the universe.” P.29

- “Svan Brun put his trust in Satan, who he referred to as “brother.”” P.30

- “The Devil was conceived of as more powerfulore reachable, and more tangible… than God.” P30

- “… the infamous sorcerer Jon of Hallebo… confessed to having made a pact with the Devil written in his own blood…” p.32

- “Ingeorg Bogesdotter had ritually renounced God the creator and his son Jesus Christ… Instead she swore herself to Satan, whom she thereafter met in the wood.” P33

- “the Romantic Satanists represent an essential stage in the emergence of contemporary religious Satanism [for three reasons]: they mark the first historical moment that a major intellectual current appeared in western culture positively reevaluating satanism… they mark the emergence of a new creative way of dealing with spirituality… the elements they emphasize in their reevaluation of Satan deeply influence the form and content of modern Satanism.” P.42

- “Satan’s rebellion against absolute, ‘divinely ordained’ authority made him, in their eyes a hero…” p42

- “Blake’s ‘Marriage of Heaven and Hell’… Lucifer in Byron’s Cain… Victor Hugo, in his unfinished epic poem on Satan…” p45

- “Satan as a noble champion of political and individual freedom remained the most important theme of Romantic Satanism throughout the 19th century.” P45

- “French anarchist Proudhon… his Russian collegue Bakunin…” p45

- “Satani in Romantic Satanism was associated with science, scientific progress, and modern critical thought.” P46

- “…for the Romantics, more than literature or mere allegory was at stake here. Poetry and literature were the ways in which they expressed and practiced their spirituality.” P49

- “Pryzbyszewski was probably the first person ever to attempt formulating an actual system of Satanic thought.” P.54

- “… he emphasizes God’s function as oppressor… Pryzbyszewski postulates two eternal gods of equal strength. One is the god of Christianity, who wishes to keep mankind in a childlike state and extinguish free will. The other God, Satan, embodies lawlessness, curiosity, and titanic defiance.”
 p/56

- “Pryzbyszewski proposes “proud sinning in the name of Satan…” p57

#**CONCLUSION**

This is probably not even half my highlighted notes from this section. It goes a TON more into individual Satanists, Romantic Satanists, etc. Specifically of value is a whole chapter on Pryzbyszewski, which I skipped most of here as it was not the point. What we see here is LaVeyan Satanism is not even close to the first form of Satanism, not even one organized and defined. Satanism is much older and experienced great diversity even before LaVey. This is **objective history.** The LaVeyan myth of being the first Satanism, or the only codified form, or the only authentic form, is a historical, objective **fiction**. The only reason to create such a fiction is if a group relies on authenticity rather than its own worth. There is nothing about fideistically preaching a fake history the make your religion more authentic, it is entirely a trait of RHP ideology. In reality, if we follow the CoS logic that the first to define something own it, Satanism is actually be definition more of an esoteric path in the first place, walked by true spiritual people who connected to him as a god or their main deity. This completely invalidates CoS as a valid form of the LHP and anything they have to say on Satanism. QED.

Satanism / LaVey loving both dogma AND nature
« on: April 21, 2019, 03:41:05 am »
In the Satanic Bible, LaVey says:

"Man needs ritual and dogma... Satanism has both ceremony and dogma. Dogma, as will be explained, is necessary... There is nothing wrong with dogma, providing it is not based on ideas and actions which go completely against human nature."

I don't see how there's any question on if L.Satanism is RHP or LHP. Dogma and adherence to nature, those are pretty defining traits.

Setianism / Re: Argument for Set (4/20/2019)
« on: April 20, 2019, 06:14:44 pm »
Maslow is a psychologist who came up with the hierarchy of needs, following on ideas from people such as Jung on Self Actualization. He showed that the course "best" for humanity was that of self actualization, which is more or less equivalent to initiation on the LHP. I have a detailed article in TIS4 if your interested (or my book if you happen to have it).

Burr is the individual who proved the physical body is created and dictated by "life fields". Instead of something in the body, there is essentially an electromagnetic blueprint the body follows. This can even predict things like illness before symptoms. Again, in TIS3 this time onyx and I have an article on this, also appendixed in my book :)

For 1 we can simply illustate. Matter takes up space but minds do not. Matter is accessible to others but mind is not. Matter lacks "aboutness" which mind has. Matter is objective and mind subjective.

For 4:

Setianism / Argument for Set (4/20/2019)
« on: April 20, 2019, 04:21:36 pm »
1.  We can scientifically confirm the mind/consciousness can go against nature and has different properties from it. Consciousness is also more certain than matter and the latter is known only through the former.

2.  We  can  scientifically confirm  the  higher  consciousness  of humans  arose  across  the  species,  exponentially, in  a  close amount  of  time,  and  ~100,000+  years  after  we  have  already evolved  as  a  physiological  species (Upper Paleolithic Revolution / UPR)

3.  Humans have a teleological "best path", both in self actualization (Maslow and co.) and in the fields which create the physical body (Burr and co.)

4. Nature  does  not work  the  way the  UPR occurred.

5. Something  unnatural  and  against  natural  cannot  rise  from Nature.

6. Something mindless and impersonal like nature cannot assign teleology.

7. Therefore,  there  is  something conscious and separate  from  Nature responsible  for  higher  consciousness  that gave  it  to  humans  (and maybe  others), and this seems to have been with purpose (teleology).

Other Religions / Passover and the Wicked Son
« on: April 20, 2019, 04:09:17 pm »

So if you don't know, part of the Passover service is the story of the four sons. The wise, wicked, simple, and one too young to enquire. Even when I was a religious Jew I knew I was the wicked son, it was always a family joke. Anytime you read that everyone looks right at me haha. And I've always been proud to take it. The four sons really kind of sum up the right hand path to me and my relationship to it, especially Judaism as it's always held a unique place. The sons are defined as such:

Wise son: asks "why do WE engage in this tradition of Passover?"

Wicked Son: "why do YOU engage in this tradition of Passover?"

Simple son: "what is all this?" (Not joking lol).

Young son: he does not know enough to question and so *should be taught the myth of Passover*.

So the obvious. What is wise is to include yourself in the Jewish tradition of Passover, what is wicked is to not. And don't forget to make the young one believe it before he is old enough to question. Like I said even as a kid I was the wicked one. I hate Passover, it's weird food and you have a long service before it, and my freaking family doesn't sit down until like 7pm. You're supposed to eat reclining but I'd get yelled at for it. And I didn't get why god couldn't just, like, free us, or not let us get enslaved. As I aged I became fascinated by Egypt, and as I looked into it I realized they weren't these weird monstrous people. In the long run I ended up aligned with an Egyptian deity!

Now I hate Passover more. I didn't go this year. I'm into tradition and whatever but not this one. It's self victimizing and demonizing an entire culture for something that never happened. It's a mockery of asking for freedom when we weren't even slaves, asking for peace when we're the ones stiring up shit and god happily let's us think he's torturing this civilization (and it even says god is who made pharaoh the way he ways, so it's a Job thing all over again). Even if the overall concept of freedom and peace for all is a great one, Passover is a mockery of that concept. There's nothing wise about approaching things in this manner, and if realizing that makes me wicked I've been happy to accept it as long as I can remember.

*Xepera maSet*

I have come into being like Set.
