It is not explained in Lords of the LHP either.

Hmmmmmm, still no details. Honestly I think it may have been a rather simple, honest invocation.

Ooohhhhh let me check the appendices in v.II.

Actually reading back through ToS v.I, Aquino really doesn't explain what he himself did much.

Man of Steel. Good movie though nowhere near BvS or Watchmen.

I have tried to articulate the cosmic paradox in the past.

If Set were to become "God", if Set were to him Self displace the Cosmic Inertia, He/It should be forced to become a new measure of consistency. Set would cease to be One, singular, for He/It should become All.  He would lose all that makes him a unique consciousness as he would be responsible for the new All, the new Cosmic Inertia, Set would lose his very identity.

It is a theory that when Set understood this cosmic paradox he created others of the Black Flame, i.e., Gifting that which would become mankind, in order to cancel this imbalance.  Leaving a Void in which true creation could take form not just as Set but also as the individual minds and wills of the kindred of the creative fire.  Spawning other beings to collaborate with him in the re-creation of the Universe in new, unique, and unpredictable forms.  The coming into being of individuality in metaphysical existence.

Hence, Set would remain One, singular, and not the All responsible for the re-creation of the Cosmos, i.e. the new "God", the new Cosmic Order of things. Set does not seek to be the omnipresent manifestation of all things; but rather exalts and nurtures the singular presence of his own unique mind and will, and that of his own kind, US!

At this point in my life I understand this concept much more than in the past. Very interesting and reasonable.

Kind of both.

In Setian Metaphysics, there are indeed many more beings like Set. I am a henotheist who works mainly with Set, Ra, Khepri, and Thoth, and have recently been on good terms with Horus the Elder.

I look forward to the review as well. No pressure :)

Don't get me wrong, Set isn't the god Christians pretend to worship, he isn't hovering over your shoulder judging you, he doesn't want to hand you things or make stuff easy. I agree with your interpretation of Set being almost alien, that's where Grant and Lovecraftian magic come in actually. Not that Set is a mindless destructive being either of course.

This reminds me I should finish my old essay on Lovecraftian magic and publish it in TIS3.

All below are quotes from The Word of Set

* * I am within and beyond you, the Highest of Life, in majesty greater than the forces of the Universe; whose eyes are the Face of the Sun and the Dark Fire of Set; who fashioned your intelligence as his own and reached forth to exalt you; who entrusted to you dignity of consciousness; who opened your eyes that you might know beauty; who brought you the key to knowledge of all lesser things; and who enshrined in you the Will to Come Into Being.

Stronger are your feet than the barren stone, and mightier are your voices than the manifold winds, for you are become a Temple such as is not, but in the mind of Set.

I am with you in peace and comfort; and I entrust to you my essence, because thus are we the same.

Arise thus in your glory, behold the genius of your creation, and be prideful of being, for I am the same - I who am the Highest of Life.

I can't text much without getting car sick and I'm headed out of town. Have you read The Word of Set?

Damn I won't be able to hop on this weekend, but I'll definitely check it out when I can. I've also left this thread stickied.
