Well, he achieved quite a bit - founded a religion, and a good one at that.

His Revised Satanic Bible was a masterpiece of introducing an authentic version of it, even though I understand the man himself was not a Satanist, his final writing of the book offered an approach to what Satanism can/could have become.

As I am still in touch with many in the Temple and a few being members of the Herald of the Dawn, I knew about it quite a while ago. For some reasoning I'm not aware of they kept it quiet until recently. Of course, I honored their request to be silent.

With the passing of Dr. Aquino, an era has ended. He was a brilliant occultist and a wonderful person who had a depth of gnosis into the LHP few if any ever had. We are very fortunate in that he left behind a wealth of that gnosis in his various writings, many published publicly. I am sure he was endlessly bombarded by people sending him emails but he never hesitated to take the time to discuss anything I inquired about. A true gentleman, a scholar, and in my opinion the Greatest Magus since Aleister Crowley. He will be missed.

Wow. i guess i never heard. Or maybe I did and forgot


I had a bunch of shit going on in my life at the time, so I wasn't really involved with the forums let alone magic.
As I understand it, it was only made public a week ago or so.

Dr. Aquino warned of the inevitable on The 600 Club forum, which has been down for some time unfortunately. I would have liked to preserve some of his posts.

Had heard of his declining health and been wondering how he's doing.
Well, he achieved quite a bit - founded a religion, and a good one at that. May he continue remanifesting.

Satanism / Re: Can I get some suggested reading materials on the subject of ACS?
« Last post by Liu on July 05, 2020, 06:23:49 pm »
Welcome!

Dislacimer: I'm not anticosmic, nor do I think we have any active users here currently that are anticosmic, not sure. And I haven't read either of the books you mention. What I have read of anticosmic material is part of Liber Azerate and two of Vexior's books.

My own relation to the anticosmic approach is that it seems to cause its practitioners to make great devotional art that I enjoy.

I'm pretty sure the TotBL invented Azerate (or gave/channeled that name to/from an existing entity, if you prefer).

Some of the anticosmic satanists I encountered would say, yes, it will make you insane, you aren't ready for it if you aren't fully committed, etc.pp. It's quite difficult to tell what they mean and what they just say (to separate the chaff, to spread misinformation, for fun, or for whatever reason). But some that I know a bit more closely would rather say, it's less about whether it's literally true and more about whether it helps you in your personal life (and those would also strongly distance themselves from any fascist associations, and even the others, while using fascist symbols tend to clarify that any form of the lhp is diametrically opposed to fascism and they only use the symbols due to the effect it has on other people).

That said, imo it (as any individual-focused path) should be compatible with any previous pantheon. Yet especially regarding Odin they might say that he's on the cosmic side of things. Really depends on how you interpret the myths and what's your worldview and so on.

Dr. Michael A. Aquino has passed on through the gates of Walhalla.  May his Being for ever Remanifest upon the Universe!

Hail, Ra-en-Set!

Satanism / Can I get some suggested reading materials on the subject of ACS?
« Last post by Aubs8bit on July 05, 2020, 02:50:02 am »
I'm not entirely sold on Anticosmic Satanism yet, but I am intrigued. I have an admittedly crappy PDF of the Book of Sitra Achra (which is kinda going over my head I admit) and Karlsson's "Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic," I was also told would help.

I'm a little confused and I apologize if this question is dumb or offensive but has anyone had any experiences, good, bad, or other working with this? Did the Temple of the Black Light "invent" Azerate? As I've not heard of them elsewhere, any time I google the name I get TotBL pages.

Does practicing this make one "insane," or "fascistic?" (I get asked this because, "why else would you want to dissolve the universe")

I'm just stuck on where to start I guess.

Can I follow this and still honor my previous pantheon? (Lucifer, Hecate, Odin).

Thanks peeps.
