Awesome. Kinda pumped reading this.

By far, Thomas Cleary has the best translations concerning the Tao. And I agree with the post. While I don't think that it is very different, I think an analogous case can also be made between the Tao and Platonic Forms. Neoplatonically, Logos is the principle that emanates it not unlike how the Stoics thought.

Regardless of outcome or character of Satan, I maintain my first answer.

Most likely. I don't see a line that I would not cross aside from what would be be prohibited in TSB. But I find it difficult to see how current laws would be enforced amidst such a war. It would be like a return to the state of nature as Hobbes described. If we are momentarily granting the validity of Christian cosmology, then are you also granting the end result of the conflict where Satan and legions are damned also? I think that's probably where the answer might vary among individuals: knowledge of the outcome beforehand.

So far, I have come across an instance called it's a bit broad so I wouldn't be surprised to find white magic there.

Today was a shitty day. But closer to the evening, it turned around. I had a conversation with a colleague on an exciting web project. And afterwards, we talked about social media in general and alternatives. He mentioned Mastodon, which is a better version of Twitter. I'm interested to try it out and join some instances that I find interesting. I wonder if there is at least one instance for LHP.

This post hits home for me. In an environment in which we seem to be in a state of auto-hypnosis, it helps to awaken at critical times and make correct decisions.

Far out..

Not necessarily but contingently so. I can understand you wanting us to take the high ground. At the same time, my sense of morality emphasizes self over others. It is a long feud stretching far in history. The cult of Asar defacing hieroglyphs of the cult of Set; Christians and Muslims contributing further to defacing in the early centuries CE.

In my time, I do not find fault with anyone that finds utility in RHP thought and practices. It is neither here nor there. For a time, I was there too. For one, I do not feel the need to burn bibles as the literature is solid. It is when those members infringe on my utility in LHP thought and practices that I am against it. That is when I become less tolerant of the euphemism of evangelism and more antagonistic to it. This is coming from a place of self preservation. It has happened enough times to warrant my response as default. Do not give an inch for them to go a mile or outright hand the bludgeon. I am not going to break that stance to turn the other cheek. I need to know what sort of person that I am dealing with before lowering my guard lest I become subjugated too.

On another note, I find the eternal Tao interesting in that I see an integral system of Ying-Yang that seeks to strike a balance in how someone can ascend to be a sage. It is anachronistic to call it a middle path since it predated such distinctions. It is One and yet walked in myriads of ways.

Those tropes. Can't beat that! Nor Patrick Stewart.

Oldboy. The Japanese movie. A fair lesson that sometimes it's best to observe the oath of Harpocrates and keep mum.

This thread is a good example of where myself and my Brother Xepera maSet differ, where the rubber meets the road in some of our differing understandings.  The O.S. is made up of extreme individualists with differing ideas and understandings.  In the "Book of Coming Forth by Night" Set states "I created HarWer (Horus) that I might define my Self."  Meaning, define him Self against the resistance of the Cosmic Stasis, defining him Self as Set, as something unique and distinct, and separate from, and independent of the laws that govern the Order of the Cosmos.  To me Horus is not the totality of the material universe though he is part if it and Horus is a part, if not the very semblance of our collective human sub-conscious mind.  The result of infusing the essence of the Black Flame with our natural human instincts and psychological make-up.

If Set were the creator of the material universe, that would make him God, the very cosmic inertia the Black Magician works against. The Universe existed long before Set Came Into Being.  Every time Set creates, he disrupts the cosmic stasis and becomes responsible for that new aspect of the Universe and thus loses that much more of his independence and distinctiveness.  If Set were to displace the entire Universe he would become a new measure of consistency, he would cease to be One (Set), for he would become All (the new God), the new cosmic inertia.  Set does not seek to become God, however, he does seek to make the Universe a more Magical realm, a realm more reflective of the Setian Mind and Will.

Set sought to counter this imbalance and to create a Void in which true Creation could take the form of the Setian Will by creating Horus, the collective subconscious mind of the human race, by infusing within that which would become mankind the Gift of his (Set's) own Essence of Being.  So that there would come into being others of his own kind, able to creatively think for themselves and bring into being their own individual thoughts and ideas in accordance with their own mind and will, separate and distinct. Hence, re-creating the Cosmos as a reflection of the Setian Will in unique and unpredictable ways.  Hence, freeing Set to Be.  To me, this is a vital aspect of the bond between the Prince of Darkness and humankind.

The Black Gift, however, is both a blessing and a curse, but that is for another post.

This perspective is actually clearer to me now that I have re-read TBoCFbN and its supplemental Analysis and Commentary.
