Rational Theistic Luciferianism: I Call on the Ancient Gods

This is the fourteenth article in a series on Rational Theistic Luciferianism, for the other articles on Satanism see (more recent first):

    I call on the ancient gods, the nameless gods of Boudicca and the gods who have drunk the blood of children. Moloch and Baal. I call upon Lucifer, first amongst demons, chief Prince of hell.

    Rise from the hidden cracks of hate, through concealed spite and malice. Dwell in impotent rage and in greed and in lust. Find home in dull ignorance and bored detachment. Gnaw into the bitter root, taste misery. Feed on fear and dance in despair oh children of Gehenna. Play amongst the dark pools, dabble with psychoses and neuroses.

    Live, demons of hell live. Be alive now as is the sacred duty. Modern totem of ancient suffering, endless suffering. In the present now as it is made from the past. The blood of the innocent cries out from the ground.

    The billionaires investing in space travel don't want Star Trek, they want Dune. But they're creating Mad Max because they don't understand the Spice.

    We have to complete Star Wars to get Star Trek. Star Wars is the struggle between good and evil. Star Trek is humanity in abundance after the scarcity wars.

    Uruk-Hai and Shai-Hulud and P'Takh and Dank farrik. Stepping Razor. Modern mythology. Now some of them want Terminator, whilst others of us want Neuromancer but looks like we got The Matrix, with perhaps a dash of Snow Crash.

    The reason we have to go through Star Wars is because Star Wars is about the inner journey. The hero's tale. The struggle to master self and be reconciled to your own darkness and redeem it as Luke was reconciled to Vader. Although Luke never owned his own dark powers and fled from them to exile on an island. Don't do that. Heroes might break but they don't stay broken.

    Lucas hired Joseph Campbell, the famed mythologist, to consult on the making of the original Star Wars to ensure it contained elements of the mythological Hero's Journey.

    And the outer world is made from the inner journey of all the individuals who co-create the outer world.

    So you're either trying to overthrow the established order and you're part of the rebellion. Or you're working for the Empire. 

    "Listen to the experts" is not always very good advice. Sometimes the experts are just a cult of people telling each other they're right. Modern Art and Academic Philosophy are my go to examples for this kind of cult.

    The human mind is occult. Hidden. Most of our memory and thought processes are non-verbal, non rational and subconscious. The totality of self. We think with our feelings and our sense of taste and style, with our values and morality. Which is how aesthetics is a branch of philosophy.

    Memory works as a network of information connected by associations, so that's how we learn. Through associations and correspondences with existing knowledge, building up models and frameworks through related ideas. The more frequently recalled a thing is, and the more associations, the easier it is to bring to mind.

    When I teach programming (Python) I teach a framework of connected information that builds up on itself, repeating key ideas and building new associations to reinforce concepts. I gather from my students what programming languages, and styles of programming, they already know so that I can teach the new thing in terms of what they already know - building associations and correspondences between what they already know and the new thing.

    How we organise information also matters to learning. Organising around key ideas that are clear and simple helps, building up structures of information related to each other. Building a foundation first and building up. A heirarchy of understanding from the general to the specific, but teaching the general (the theory) alongside the specific (the practice). Organising information helps for recall and for reducing duplicates and conflicts (thinking contradictory things in different parts of your mind).

    More importantly organising simplifies your thinking. Store information and ideas in the simplest form possible. This makes connections between ideas obvious and improves your ability to navigate and express your ideas and means you can understand more. Strive for clarity and simplicity.

    Building up models is terminology from software neural nets which are modelled on our brain. A major part of the models we build are non-verbal, as of course is memory. They include feelings and taste and impressions. So adding emotional content, including taste and style, aids with teaching and depth of understanding. We think with our feelings and our sense of aesthetics. Emotional content makes things easier to learn and we learn best about what we care about. What we love we learn. Passion is the greatest teacher and the fastest learner.

    Being able to traverse related networks of knowledge in an agile fashion looks and feels like intelligence.

    The Great I Am. The inner wellspring. The fountain of eternal youth.

    We all share the same source of life. We all share the same life as we share the same world.

    We're not as individual as we think we are. We think together, what we're willing to think influenced by who we're willing to be in the eyes of others.

    We share opinions and ideas that grow and change, and change us. All the while proclaiming what a lonely little island we are.

    As far as we can tell the universe came from nothing and one day will fade away into complete nothingnesss. A very long time from now.

    Not only is the universe expanding, but the rate at which it is expanding is accelerating. We don't know why and our physics has the concept of dark energy to account for it, along with dark mass to account for all the missing matter that we can't find because we can measure the effects of a lot more gravity than we can find matter.

    Anyway. So the universe will never stop expanding and the rate at which it is expanding will continue to increase until eventually even the space within the size of an atomic nucleus will be moving away from itself in every direction at the speed of light and no matter at all will be possible. And then everything will finally have ended.

    IAO, Iota Alpha Omega. The Greek form of the Tetragrammaton, the holiest form of the one name. YHVH. Given to Moses in the same myth where the Hebrew magick defeated the Egyptian magick and the Angel of Death passed over the Hebrews and slew the first born of the Egyptians at the behest of the Lord. Or so the story goes. The Egyptians made their Pharoahs into gods and built an empire spanning millennia.

    The letters Iota Alpha Omega can be vocalised, unlike the Tetragrammaton for ancient Hebrew is written without the vowels and it was the tradition not to speak this name so the vocalisation is lost although some say that as Yod Hey Vav Hey is all aspirated consonants it is the sound of a breath and cannot be said. EE-AH-OH, and if you run them together the name sounds like a long Yow. But more wolf than black country.

    Iota Alpha Omega. The beginning to the end as the smallest possible unit. The start of everything from nothing unto the end returning to nothing again.

    One pointedness. Ekaggata and Samadhi.

    A single organising principle around which your life and mind revolves. Simplicity. The simplest possible form. A razor, the Sieve of Eratosthenes, sifting for value in all I think and do. A goal, an aim, a cause. Single minded and ruthless.

    A passion. A binary.

    Does it point toward love or away? That is my razor, my organising principle.

    Jung said life was a quest for deep connection to your past and culture (that he called religion) for we are what has made us and we are not individuals but all connected.

    Nietzsche talked about will to power; that personal fulfilment is in the release of personal power. The id, the primal urge and surge. The power to create and to destroy.

    As well as the pleasure principle, the life drive, Freud also identified within the id Thanatos. The death drive as he called it, the compulsion to seek oblivion.

    The meaning and purpose of life is to find meaning and purpose in life. It's not inherent, but we create it together from what we already find.

    Intuition is a conscious response to an unconscious stimulus. It doesn't make your response, which is either to something in your environment or subconscious thought processes or the combination of these, automatically correct.

    This is why the good Lord gave us the power and light of reason.

    "The heart knows". Well yes, but also "the human heart is deceitful above all things". 
    We have a strong and demonstrable tendency to deceive ourselves, which you consciously have to understand and struggle against to be true to yourself and true to others

    Living honourably and undeceived requires us to understand and account for confirmation bias and apophenia (illusions) and all the myriad ways we are willing to be lied to.

    If you want to be able to trust your sense of reality you need to be rigorous, disciplined, in seeking truth and rejecting false certainty and refusing to lie to yourself.

    "Instinct is a lie, told by a fearful body, hoping to be wrong." - Guru Lahima

    We sacrifice children to the gods of industry, chief amongst them Moloch the Blind and Mammon, on an industrial scale across the world.

    Buy clothes made in a sweatshop, drink coffee or eat chocolate picked by slave children, drive polluting cars, participate in society without speaking out - and you are participating in child sacrifice and benefiting from it. That is your worship of Moloch and Mammon.

    The system of the world. The darkness that covers the earth. Just playing the game. Only as bad as everyone else. But see what we do together, look what we're responsible for! Individuate!

    We ascribe intent to the demons and the gods, anthropomorphise them as we anthropomorphise ourselves. They're primarily emotional, as we are primarily emotional. They are not inherently evil as we are not inherently evil.

    They are made of us as we are made of them.

    When the neophyte learns that the key is the proper application of the dynamo of living power they have learned the Mystery of their Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in their hands.

    Finding the reality of it. That's the thing. Eschewing illusion and delusion.

    Casting off the reassuring self aggrandisement of Choronzon, ripping off the bandages from our own wounds to face reality as she really is.
    If you wish to be the king of the jungle, it's not enough to act like a king. You must be the king. There can be no doubt. Because doubt causes chaos and one's own demise. -- Michael, The Gentlemen

    Indifference is the enemy. If you don't care enough to speak out then you're morally complicit as you're letting it happen. 

    The path to climate catastrophe is paved with indifference.

    Priests, politicians and the wealthy. The ones who could change things but choose not to out of fear or greed or indifference. These are the ones who are guilty, who are the enemy. If you could speak out, make a difference, but choose not to then you are the enemy.

    “From the least to the greatest,
    all are greedy for gain;
    prophets and priests alike,
    all practice deceit.
    They dress the wound of my people
    as though it were not serious.
    ‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
    when there is no peace.
    Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct?
    No, they have no shame at all;
    they do not even know how to blush.
    So they will fall among the fallen;
    they will be brought down when I punish them,”

    says the Lord.

    "Science is an approach to truth based on systematically rejecting falsehood."
