“The first rule of the Internet version of the sinister game is that you are cautious, and suspicious of everyone […] You do not trust what people say about their experiences, their ‘achievements’, and themselves, or what they say about others […]
Complete trust is earned, and earned only by means of direct personal interaction extending over a period of causal Time […]
The second rule of the Internet version of our game is that the world-wide-web is only cyberland, so that what matters is not what someone or some many may say or claim there, or what items they may publish there, but what happens in the real world; what action results from such words in cyberland. Until their words become alive through the deeds of individuals, such words, while possibly interesting or amusing, are only hollow words.
The third rule of the Internet version is that all information is free, without copyright, and should be made available to everyone, without restriction […]
The fourth rule is that revisions, comments, updates, bug-fixes, forks and flavors, are expected, encouraged, and necessary.” Playing The Sinister Game
The main purpose of this ‘authorized’ Order of Nine Angles blog is to collect together a selection of classic Order of Nine Angles texts dating from 1985-2012 ev. The texts include some previously unpublished ω9α items, and a few revisions/updates of some classic ONA MSS.
Given the selection criteria, by the Inner ONA, this site will serve as a useful O9A resource presenting as it does the texts necessary to correctly understand and appreciate the ONA, our methods, our style, our mythos, ethos, our tests, our esoteric philosophy, our esoteric traditions – and hence our Labyrinthos Mythologicus and ancestral pathei-mathos. These texts will also, therefore, expose those internet-wordsmiths we term ‘the o9a-pretendu crowd’ as well as enable those so inclined to use The Dark Arts of the O9A and/or follow our Seven Fold Way to Adeptship and beyond.
Thus, this blog is about Lapis Philosophicus – the jewel of the alchemist. The jewel that the Sorcerer/Sorceress seek to discover by means of The Dark Arts and which Arts are the true and secret alchemy. This seeking, such a use of The Dark Arts together with acquiring the jewel, transforms the sorcerer and confers on them many esoteric gifts.
” Our real work, both as individuals and as an Order – our Magnum Opus – is genuinely esoteric and Occult, and thus concerned with lapis philosophicus and not with some purely causal self-indulgence, or some ephemeral outer change in some causal form or forms, or with using such forms to try and effect some external change. For it is this esoteric, this Occult, work which will, affectively and effectively, introduce and maintain the Aeonic changes we desire and plan for – in its own species of acausal Time.” O9A Adversarial Action – Success or Failure?
” We grow and have grown slowly, as befits our Aeonic perspective. Slowly, through personal contact, a personal knowing, pledges of duty and loyalty based on our code of honour…It means we are something of a large, growing, unconventional family, whose relations and relatives are becoming dispersed around the Earth, and who – unlike many extended natural families – have a shared, supra-personal, purpose and a shared culture.
Naturally, like all families, sometimes there are disputes, as sometimes a young son or daughter leaves home to adopt another culture or none. But by and large the family stays together, because of our culture, our traditions, our practices, our Occult abilities and faculties, our very long-term esoteric aims and goals.
Which is one reason why many of our people have been with us, part of our family, for ten, twenty, thirty years and more, and why we have slowly grown through assimilating their friends, their sons, their daughters, their relatives, their colleagues. And why we have recruited, we still recruit and will continue to recruit, in the old-fashioned way.”
