The Path of Chaos

Faithfully written by St. Hugh, KSC, Ignifactus of Malaria; as profoundly revealed to him by Our Lady Discordia.

1-All things have chaos as their beginning, chaos as their ending, and out of chaos they are made. And like all statements, this is neither true nor is it false. When the mind succumbs to the cocoon of order and the illusion of belief, freedom and spirit are lost and it becomes necessary to claim an identity.

2-All things have chaos as their beginning, chaos as their ending, and out of chaos they are made. And like all statements, this is neither false nor is it true. When the mind rejects the cocoon of order and the illusion of belief, freedom, spirit, and even a sense of humor are found; life can be lived.

3-In the beginning, or at the ending, or sometimes right now, it was said and will be said and is being said the most holy phrase “think for yourself!” All doctrines are heresy including this one.

4-In ancient times an ancient sage gathered together his disciples and admonished them to look after themselves for he would leave them soon. “oh, great master, please leave us with your ultimate teaching so that we can continue in your way. ” He responded “Never whistle while you’re pissing. Never believe what your hear. “

5-Romance is but another way for the cocoon of order to crush any sensitivity and to stifle any intimacy. Eros is simply a misspelling of Eris. Or at least Eros was meant as a joke; not a very funny one at that. Get romance out of the way and true love will flow.

6-Romance is but another way to break open the cocoon of order and to cultivate sensitivity where intimacy can grow. Eros is simply a misspelling of Eris. There can be no true eroticism without eristicism or at least a little discord. If Eros was originally meant as a joke then it’s gotten out of hand. Good. Cultivate romance and true love will follow.

7-Waking up from confusion does not mean that the confusion will go anywhere. Nor will laughter pay your bills. But no amount of money could ever be worth as much as laughter.

8-It has often been said that the unexamined life is not worth living. However, if one examines their life and finds no laughter, such a person can truly say that their life is worthless.

9-The maker of laughter rejoices here and rejoices in the hereafter; Thus such a person rejoices in both places. Having beheld their deeds they rejoice exceedingly.

10-The suppressor of laughter frowns here and frowns in the hereafter; Such a person frowns everywhere. Having beheld their lack of laughter they frown exceedingly. Thus it is said that the sage learns the art of tickling to wake up the dead.

11-When all the world confuses order with beauty, this in itself is ugliness. Therefore the sage instinctively walks the path and the non-path of chaos. Such a life is filled with incomparable beauty. Such a person living such a life is not afraid to worship their lovers. Such lovers learn true loving. Thus, it is often said that one way for true love to enter this world is to thoroughly confuse chaos with beauty.

12-It is often said that spiritual and religious teachings should be revered. And there are myriad ways to display reverence. But the truest most ancient most justified sages revered the heart and free thought above any teaching.

13-A squirrel was chasing a sparrow in the woods. The squirrel tripped and stumbled into a tree, losing consciousness. He awoke in a daze while the sparrow spoke thus: “these are the considerations which must be considered,

1: All violence is simply masochism.

2: Society is a joke by the general on the particular.

3: Think for yourself and believe in nothing. “

The squirrel shook off the daze but was left with a splitting headache for the rest of the day.

14-If you can hear talking animals, you may be on the way to sagehood. If you can see the fnords, you may be on the way to sagehood. If you think that government was originally a practical joke that somehow got to be taken much too seriously, you are definitely on the way to sagehood, you shameless anarchist!

15-Those who pretend to be civilized are always threatened by heresy. Those who pretend to be uncivilized are always threatened by heresy. In short, heresy is always a threat to pretentious people.

16-The two major movements or inertias of humanity are likened to cattle and sheep, but truly cattle and sheep have more intelligence.

17-The immature continuously repeat the same mistakes and call it consistency. The immature but half-awakened continuously repeat the same mistakes and call it identity. The half-immature but almost awakened repeat the same mistakes and call it by a myriad of names. The mature have no need for excuses, names, justifications, or even pseudo-pop-psychology, whether they continue repeating mistakes or not.

18-The Universe is always laughing. Is it laughing with you, or at you? The Universe is always crying, is it crying with you, or for you?

19-Those on the left will get crushed by those on the right. Those on the right will get crushed by those on the left. Those in the middle will get crushed by both sides. Meanwhile those on the top will reap the profits and will not include the rest of us in their feasts. Truly, the need for the apple of discord is great.

20-The one whose mind is not defiled by order, whose heart is not defiled by sadness, and who has seen through good and evil, is free from fear and free from obedience. Such a person is said to be fully human.

21-Days and nights slip by. Love affairs and one-nighters blur on by. Bills come by mail to be paid or neglected. Mountains crumble and new nations are born. Wars are still fought and the same stupid reasons are given. As has been said, indeed many things do come to pass, you being one of them. But when was the last time you laughed?

22-Be wary of people praying in front of liquor stores. Such people are calling upon the spirits instead of drinking them.

23-It was rumored that in response to the often quoted statement “it is an ill wind that blows no minds” the wind blowing at the time shouted “blow your own damn minds!”

“In the sphere of mad, elective love, woman, the path of reconciliation between man and nature, is ADORED. The surrealists are, in this particular, modern heirs of the romantics. In fact, women maintain, by their biological composition and millennial social formation, much more expressive than man, a way of life more innocently linked to mystery and magic. The woman’s beauty, a promise of happiness, is a living attempt on the “performance principle” of the affluent society, as well as the emphasizes the frankfurtian Herbert Marcuse in Eros and Civilization. “

KSTXI Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspiracies

:::

“(…)The surrealists, on the other hand, intuitively knew that the irrational is the source of the rational, just as Non-Being is the ground and root of Being. The existence or being objectively external (as the word means) is illusory, since it depends and is projected by Non-Being (ie subjectivity). This is the occult thesis. The science of the Occult is the science of the Interior and it deals with the subconscious and its interrelationship with external consciousness, i.e. objectivity. However, above all that psychologists can say, there is no individual subconsciousness, for the subconsciousness is essentially the sub-treatment of Consciousness; and this too is not an individual phenomenon, although it may seem to the individual as such. The individual is rooted in the subconscious and in the dream he approaches the root of consciousness. In his waking state, he is therefore even more distant from the source than when he is dreaming. It should here be understood that the dream does not necessarily entail sleep there are daytime dreams as well as nighttime dreams. The factor that clearly distinguishes dream from thought is the latter’s essentially volitional quality. Thought itself is a form of daytime dream, for thought is not possible in the absence of that dimension which is the absence of dream consciousness (ie subconsciousness). Lovecraft’s great contribution to the occult is in his demonstration – indirect as he was – of being able to control the dream-mind that is able to project itself into other dimensions and to discover that there are portals through which it flows – in the form of inspiration, intuition and vision – the genuine stream of creative magical consciousness.
It is the specific work of certain artists to invoke the forces of the Abyss (the Void or subconsciousness) so that they may assume this reality in human consciousness and reflect within the aethyrs the magically generated creatures born of the Congress with the “Deep Ones”. It is irrelevant if the artist is aware of the direction of his work. It may even be essential to his realization that he is not conscious, for an artist manifests his creative power (Shakti) only in the absence. The mystery of Absence, of Not-Being, is at the root of all creativity and inspiration. Lovecraft is a perfect example of this formula, for it was only when the rational Lovecraft was absent that the vital current flowed from the outside and energized his imaginative creations endowed with vivid concepts of life that science is still at the threshold of discovery.”

The Gnosis of Gulik the Stoned

By u/garveydhaines

In the Principia Discordia, Gulik is referred to as a modern incarnation of Hermes. The mysterious, liminal diety is also reminiscent of another diety from the constipated greeks that had his own fair share of complicated mythological parallels: Dionysus.

In the myth in which he is torn apart by titans, the greeks forgot the bit in which cockroaches came running out of his veins in the place of blood. Thats the thing about gods, they don’t bleed blood. They bleed cockroaches.

Anyways Dionysus’ “blood” infested the earth and the only parts of the poor god that were left were his Pineal gland, which tastes like gym socks, his left hand, and his wang.

Each piece of flesh that the titans didn’t gobble up respectively became adam, eve, and Steve.

The children of adam became the greyfaced, the priests and kings of old who hold the rest of humanity in mental prisons of dogma. The Jordan Peterson followers who believe life is lacking of the mystic.

The children of Eve became the salt of the earth goddess. The farmers and essential workers who tend to the everday needs most people in first world countries take advantage of.

The children of Steve became shamanic warriors who not only fight our physical wars in the name of destruction. They also fight the philosophic and spiritual battles in times of peace for creativities sake. The pen is mightier than the sword, so poets, magicians, scientists, artists and the like are just as brave as the herculean heroes of legend.

And then there’s Eris. She is the Isis to Gulik’s Osiris. She is the divine consort to the dying god whos flesh has been scattered amongst the Earth. For we are all of Gulik’s flesh who is cradled by the goddess who waits for our return.

She finds our modern divisions and borders to be abstract and thus wishes to unite us to once again resurrect her divine lover. That is until she loses interest in our pointless squabbles and goes to stay the night with her other hubby, the sky daddy. Who, unlike Gulik, is fully intact.

All Hail the Goddess Eris

by Robert Anton Wilson

From Gnostica: News of the Aquarian Frontier, Volume 3, Issue 12 in July 1974.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

:::

Since many of you out there are only unconscious Discordians so far, this first blast will be an introduction to Discordian atheology, to enable you to become conscious Discordians at once.

Nobody is excluded from the Discordian Society for reasons of race, religion, politics, sex, celibacy, being a cabbage, or anything like that. Every sentient being is an Honorary Discordian. We accept you, totally whoever or whatever you are.

This leads to an inevitable objection, which helpfully leads right into the center of Discordian metaphysics.

Some of you will distrust this universal good-vibe-ism and suspect an ulterior motive. Some will be so ornery as to refuse to be incorporated just because you are being offered it with no strings attached. Others will make a principle of recalcitrance and insist that we can’t accept you without your consent.

It doesn’t matter. You are still part of the Discordian Society. You are, to be precise, in the Accordian Society, a subsect reserved for those who reject Discordianism entirely.

Discordianism includes its own opposite. like all ideas above “the abyss” in Cabalistic language. (In Discordian language, there is no abyss. That region around Da’ath and those unheimlich places in general are called the Realm of Thud.)

Thus, we worship Eris, goddess of Discord and Chaos. (See Bulfinch for all the boring details.) Since Discord needs something to be discordant with, we also worship Her sister, Aneris, patroness of the Accordian Society.

The symbol of Eris is the Apple of Discord, which she threw into a party on Olympus (thereby indirectly causing Paris to get the hots for Helen, with results described by Lady Homer in the poems plagiarized by another Greek named Homer who later got all the credit). The symbol of Aneris is the Pentagon, which represents Stability, Law’n’Order, Nixonology, the Thule Society, and all sorts of dull, respectable or patriotic forms of homicide.

Or, in terms of over-simplification, Eris is the spirit of anarchy (Harpo), Aneris is the spirit of bureaucracy (Chico), and the Discordian Society is their synthesis in dynamic unbalance forever (Groucho).

Without Eris, no Aneris. Without Aneris, no Eris. Without unbalance, no progress: stagnation, death, Pasadena.

In the perpetual juggling of Eris and Aneris, Shem and Shaun, Discordian and Accordian, Hodge Podge, “our social something bumps along bumpily” (as Joyce says in the Wake) in the form of “a human (pest) cycling (pist!) and re-cycling (past).”

There are five stages to each cycle, even though Joyce only knew about four, and poor old Marx only knew about three.

These stages are Chaos, or the thesis; Discord, or the antithesis; Confusion, or the synthesis; Bureaucracy, or the parenthesis; and Aftermath, or the paralysis.

Eris, as spirit of Chaos (=156 by Cabala and thereby equals Babalon in Crowley’s less sophisticated system) broods over all ages of pure Chaos. This makes certain aneristic types uneasy, leading to:

Discord, or “How the West Was Lost;” the Marshall comes in looking like Clint Eastwood and the State is established, and things get more and more regimented; thereby creating or incarnating Aneris, spirit of Organization, creating

Confusion, as everybody goes around asking “Who’s in charge here? What do I do next? Where can I hang my coat?” and things like that. Will has been divorced from body; each human is his brother’s and sister’s “keeper;” conformity and slavery thrive (and the Freudian “unconscious” is created out of all the lost Wills, baffled Desires, surrendered Needs. etc.); whereby Aneris waxeth great, promoting

Bureaucracy, which immediately begins to re-charge Eris according to the great Discordian equation

Imposition of order=escalation of chaos

and the “papyraceous formation” of Proudhon is created: tons of decrees, laws, rules, regulations etc. rain hard upon the increasingly frantic and disoriented population, leading to strikes, riots, insurrections. revolutions, anarchy and

Aftermath, in which things slowly evolve toward the original Chaos, and a new cycle starts.

So much for sociology. (Hah!) The same principles, Discordians claim (or are deluded into believing) hold throughout Existence (and Non-Existence) on all levels.

Protoplasm, for instance, is held together by the conflict of erisian forces (electrical charge, driving each colloidal particle away from all others) and anerisian forces (surface tension, drawing all the particles together). As long as this dynamic unbalance remains, the protoplasm is “alive:” life is unbalance.

On the larger scale, the galaxies seem to be maintained, as Buckminster Fuller has shown, by opposing forces of tension (expansion) and compression (contraction).

Crafty readers will easily see how this Discordian/Accordian tendency appears in the amity-enmity of religious bodies Christian, Moslem, pagan or whatever.

Thus, if you only mildly oppose this Discordian atheology, you are only mildly Accordian, but still part of the Opposite which gives Discordianism a reason to exist; but if you violently oppose us (for reducing metaphysics to a clown-show, say), then you are a strong part of the Opposite and give us even more reason to exist.

Everybody is part of Discordianism; I repeat. because now you are ready to understand the profundity of the joke, somewhat.

Needless to say, this atheology is an expression in language of the great spiritual truth which the Master Therion expressed mathematically in the equation 0=2.

Existence is the unreal resultant (0) of the imaginary conflict of two (2) non-existent forces.

The jewel is in the lotus: the Apple is in the Pentagon. We become what we love, but we also become what we hate. These are special cases of the general Sufi principle that we become what we passionately imagine. (Korzybski and Gurdjieff called this “passionate imagination” by the name Identification, if you are trying to translate this nonsense into one of the more familiar systems of philosophical or occult nonsense.)

Discordians do not enter into bliss like Buddhists or other low-level types like that. Entering into bliss is just another Accordian delusion, ignoring the Opposite again and thus remaining mired in Malkus on a higher level. Discordians are just as capable of entering into bliss as any other shamans, witches, magicians, yogis, dopers, artists and clowns, but Discordians are also capable of coming out of bliss and “re-incarnating.” A fully-trained Discordian adept may re-incarnate as many as twenty times a day.

It has been objected in Certain Quarters that Discordianism is a “female chauvinist” plot, because both Eris and Aneris are ladies and there don’t seem to be any male gods in this system.

This objection is easily met. Gods and goddesses, like space, time, mass, etc., are creations of the human nervous system, abstractions, symbols. (Nothing up either sleeve, you see; now watch what I do next:) Therefore, another symbolism containing the same truth is also true. Or, as Sri Syadasti said, “Truth is five but men have only one name for it.”

In our alternative symbology, Eris remains female but Aneris is only a Veil before the mystery of the true God of law’n’order, who is male. In fact, he is Eris inside-out, or Sire, the Father-spirit. Finally, in the New Aeon, Eris and Sire do a complicated 69 like Nuit and Hadit in the Stele of Revealing, and become Risers (Eris-Sire intertwined backwards), the twin spirits of Aquarian Consciousness also symbolized by Crowley’s Horus twins.

Thus, Eris (moon-goddess) is Sire (sun-god) is Risers (star-gods), as in the 0 (Nuit), 1 (Hadit), 2 (Ra-Hoor-Khuit, Hoor-Par-Krat) symbolism of the Book of the Law. Neat? The full equation, which Crowley missed, is 0=1=2. This explains all the mysteries, East and West, North and South, everywhere.

(Cf. “The Star Ruby” with its formulae: “Father and Mother are One God, Father and Daughter are One God, Mother and Son are One God, Son and Daughter are One God, Not six nor four nor two nor one nor none,” etc.)

It will be understood by the Cabalistic reader that Discordianism is a system of transcendental Atheism, agnostic Gnosticism, skeptical Monotheism, and unified Dualism. In short, the Erisian revelation is not a complicated put-on disguised as a new religion, but a new religion disguised as a complicated put-on.

An Erisian Sacrament

By Memetics Division

Eris, I invoke thee to evoke thy prowess of chaos and your creative essence to sanctify this water before me, for all that is unknown is not all tragedy and despair but raw and unadulterated potential lay within its abyssal depth. Within the heart of darkness and far from the closest sun, there is bliss in shear existence and a joy in the turbulence that unites the undefied with the effable, in majestic fire there is a quenching of desire and relinquishing of apathy that creates momentum and empowers the feeble, that rains wrath on the powerful and gives it to the meek.

For all that exist, all live within chaos, and all are subject to the fairness of uncertainty, to the whim of probability. For all that know, there is a gnostic certainty of the unknowing nature of it all, and for those who are lost, they are certain that they know the workings of its mechanisms, and will pay for their ignorance by having their wealths divided and shared among the swaths of those uncertain of tomorrow and knowledgeable of forever.

It’s thus I decree, as Erisian Pope Oblong, Rev. Gerbil brain and Space Umpire of the future martian colonies, that all is fair in the ‘hood and that good things happen to bad people, as often as bad things happen to good people, and as often as good things happen to good people, not to discredit the occasions where bad things happen to bad people, and in this profound insight the fairness of reality is known to all, and out of that fairness comes a peace of mind that can only be sated by embracing the turmoil.

For all your chaotic undertakings, I beg thee ERIS, in her merciless ambiguity, to bestow upon thee the knowledge that all things being equal, that both nothing matters and because of that EVERYTHING MATTERS VERY MUCH – If you so decide it does, when you choose and how you want to look at it. This is the equality that discord offers, in that everyone be treated by nature in a just and fair manner, regardless of what you think you deserve, what you feel is your right, and how much you hate your neighbor.

SO POOP ON HIS LAWN,

Or don’t!

It doesn’t matter. It will all average out in the end, because although not all men are born equal, all of us die just the same.

Discordian Eristocracy

What would a major world religion be without a ponderous hierarchy of pretentious titles to confuse, awe and madden the people with?

Reasonable, that’s what.

And we won’t stand for that kind of non-nonsense around here. Therefore, The Church of Pentaversal Discord (a phrase just coined, but applied retroactively so that it predates time) has put together a suitably ridiculous Chutes and Ladders-type hierarchy of Who May Do What to Whom. (There are those who would suggest that this has already been done adequately in the POEE Disorganizational Matrix, but as a member of a progressive belaboring union, I am unlawfully bound to suggest that such people get outta my face before I call for a walk-all-over and a picketting [which, in this context, very much resembles a staking {vampire-style}.])

At the bottom in this house of cards are, of course, the popes. It should be noted that every man, woman, child and platypus, living, dead or otherwise, is an honest-to-Goddess pope of Discordia, and thus infallible (you should go get your Pope Card). You may think that this causes all sorts of trouble when popes disagree (and you’d be right; you’re a pope, after all), but you’d be wrong (I’m a pope too, you see). Actually, when popes disagree, it’s a Wonderful Thing because thereby is the Divine Humour of Eris brought to full fruition. By believing every sort of contradictory thing (individually and as a group), popes make these things True and Manifest (as opposed to True and Unmanifest), and thus bear forth the Great Joke.

Next up on the totem pole are the POEE (Paratheo-anametamystikhood Of Eris Esoteric [pronounced “poee”] chaplins, who have been ordained by reading Sacred Text (like this, for instance. Congratulations). Still higher than them are the POEE priests, ordained by Mal2 himself.

The pinnacles (“for pointy like unto a picket fence is the structure of the Church of Pentaversal Discord”) of Discordianism are the Episkopossum (whose titles are, after all, capitalized). They are the ones whose visions of Eris transcend what Is, forcing them to create something which Is Not but Will Be If You Just Relax and Wait for a Second (jeez, you’re pushy). They create their own Cabals (from the Hebrew “Kaballah,” or “collection of absurdities for the unenlightened to take seriously”), often with nifty names. Of course, since you’re a pope, you can decide that you, personally, are at the head of the Pentaversal Church and that chaplins are much more enlightened than priests (since they’ve gone to all the trouble of reading Sacred Text and ordaining themselves, while priests were ordained by someone else), and therefore all of this is a steaming heap of dung (even though it’s True), and you’d be right (but mistaken).

“I don’t believe anything, but I have many suspicions… I strongly suspect that a world “external to,” or at least independent of, my senses exists in some sense.

I also suspect that this world shows signs of intelligent design, and I suspect that such intelligence acts via feedback from all parts to all parts and without centralized sovereignity, like Internet; and that it does not function hierarchically, in the style of an Oriental despotism, an American corporation or Christian theology. I somewhat suspect that Theism and Atheism both fail to account for such decentralized intelligencce, rich in circular-causal feedback.

I more-than-half suspect that all “good” writing, or all prose and poetry that one wants to read more than once, proceeds from a kind of “alteration in consciousness,” i.e. a kind of controlled schizophrenia. [Don’t become alarmed – I think good acting comes from the same place.]

I sometimes suspect that what Blake called Poetic Imagination expresses this exact thought in the language of his age, and that visits by”angels” and “gods” states it an even more archaic argot.

These suspicions have grown over 72 years, but as a rather slow and stupid fellow I do not have the chutzpah to proclaim any of them as certitudes. Give me another 72 years and maybe I’ll arrive at firmer conclusions.“

We play #TheGame23 – The Game of Games

It´s an Infinite Meta-Game. It spreads itself and is created from the intertwining of other games, such as #00AG9603, #infinity23, Aaní, Galdrux, KSTXI, Operation D.I.S.T.A.N.C.E., OpMiMiC, Post-Neoism, #QuantumSchizophrenia, Reality Ranglers, Reality Glitch Hack, The Omniquery Initiative, Cosmic Liminality, The Institute for Folly, Eris unveiled, #MKFawkes, Cicada Cosmic Warriors or any other game that resonates with these crazy ideas.

#TheGame23 is an advanced Open-Source Meta Alternative Reality Game made to be played in many perspectives. If you got #TheGame23 in your mind, you dont need to see it in objective reality to play it. Thinking about #TheGame23 and making people know about it is enough to cause changes in reality because the game is a mind virus that memetically spread itself causing subtle changes through the people it infect. The goal of #TheGame23 is not to win, but instead is to use it as a tool to undermine the current status quo. The game is a innerently endless transformative process that adapts itself to work in any enviroment. Depending on the variation and mod of #TheGame23, the whole world, or all those aware of the #TheGame23, are playing at same time. Many tactics of propaganda have been developed to increase the rate of people infected by #TheGame23 memetic virus. Active creative players are aware of the core of the #TheGame23 that remains hidden. Most informations come from a unknown source once the infected develop a high mental awareness of extra dimension of perspectives of reality that permit the interaction with the core of #TheGame23.

00AG9603 main goal is to help you create your “own” Dataplex, a large and bestial hydra made of data and bits, that can devour anyone who is certain enough that can confront its wildly incomprehensive and cryptographic nature. A dataplex is therefore a cryptosophical entity, that connects people through hypercomplex semio-occult means, hypnotizes others with its enigmatic knowledge and datanets, inspiring all the open minds that enter in contact with it to explore further into the absurd.

An effective dataplex must work like a higher dimensional spider web, capturing data that comes in contact with its occult nets, twisting and folding everything it touches into continuously moving hyperplanes. it is fed with data, ideas, emotions, dreams… it melts every being that dreams to be solid and finite into an amorfous fluid of efervescent chaos. Therefore, every sentient being can get affected by the forces that comes out of a dataplex. The ability of self-reflection, self analysis and a continuous process of folding itself into layers of incomplete meaning, is what defines a sentient being, the primary target of a dataplex. The first time you acknowledge its existence and sees yourself questioning it, is when you are already infected by its web, unable to make sense of it. Your existence will be fractured, your emotions will be melting into an oniric soup, and all your life will be stripped away from that which you call “I”, only to be born again as a hypercomplex web of multiple agents/forces/affects, a fractal-being

Every single thing in all that exists, is a dot of its own, a lonely and inutile unidimentional point in space. Every connection between things, dualities and paradoxes are of two dimentional complexity, they retain two simultaneous polarities that can only be understood through points of reference. Start expanding vertices as you meld into other dots, and other links, lines, cells… create a vast and rich data ecosphere around your fractal-being, expand, glitch and hack the world around you until you start forming a complex polytope, an alive and incomprehensible dataplex, lost in an infinite flight towards the great unknown.

What is Galdrux?

.
It can never be described in language, but it may be another name for what Jewish mystics call Ein Sof, and which Gary Lachman describes as follows: At Kabbalah’s heart is the relation between creation, the finite, physical cosmos, and its infinite, unmanifest source, called the Ein-Sof, which means ‘limitless’ or ‘unending’. This is a sphere or dimension of what we can call ‘negative existence’, which really means that it is a plane of reality that our finite human minds are incapable of comprehending, and not merely a simple emptiness. The Ein-Sof is so ‘other’ than what we normally perceive as reality, that we cannot make positive statements about it. Any positive statement about it, would, by definition, be a limit on it, and as it is limitless, cannot apply.
This negative existence has parallels in other spiritual traditions. It is the Neti-Neti (‘not this, not that’) of Hinduism, the sunyatta or ‘void’ of Buddhism, the Pleroma of the Gnostics. It is even part of the Christian faith. The Athanasian Creed, in use in Western Christianity since the sixth century, declares that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are ‘uncreated’ and ‘unlimited’, and in more than one place in scripture we are told that God ‘has neither body nor parts’. It is at the heart of the negative theology of Meister Eckhart, forms the Ungrund of Jacob Boehme’s difficult alchemical writings, and can be found in the Nichts or ‘positive nothingness’ of Martin Heidegger’s ‘fundamental ontology’ and his predecessor Hegel’s tortuous dialectic.
In more scientific terms, a similar idea, but without the spiritual connotations, seems to be present in the way scientists talk about the state of things ‘before’ the Big Bang. I put ‘before’ in quotation marks because, according to most accounts, there was no ‘before’ before the big bang, a confusing situation, to be sure. A kind of non-manifest ‘ground’ of our everyday reality also seems to be involved in the ‘implicate order’ of the physicist David Bohm. There are other expressions of the idea, but I think this will suffice for now.

Gnosis of Galdrux

The Dead came back from Angalsama, where they found not 
what they sought. They prayed me let them in and besought 
my word, and thus i began my teaching. 
Harken: I begin with nothingness. Nothingness is the same as 
fullness. In infinity full is no better than empty. Nothingness is both empty and full. As well might ye say anything else of nothingness,as for instance, white is it, or black, or again, it is not, or it is. A thing that is infinite and eternal hath no qualities, since it hath all qualities. 
This nothingness or fullness we name the Anticosm . 
Therein both thinking and being cease, since the eternal and infinite possess no qualities. In it no being is, for he then would be distinct from the anticosm, and would possess qualities which would distinguish him as something distinct from the anticosm. 
In the anticosm there is nothing and everything. It is quite fruitless to think about the anticosm, for this would mean self-dissolution. Creatura is not in the anticosm, but in itself. The anticosm is both beginning and end of the created beings. It pervadeth them, as the light od the sun everywhere pervadeth the air. Although the anticosm prevadeth altogether, yet hath created being no share thereof, just as wholly transparent body becometh neither light nor dark through the light nor dark through the light which pervadeth it. We are,however , the anticosm itself, for we are a part of the eternal and the infinite. 
But we have no share thereof, as we are from the anticosm infinitely removed; not spiritually or temporally, but essentially, since we are distinguished from the anticosm in our essence as creatura, which is confined within time and space.Yet because we are parts of the anticosm, the anticosm is also in us. Even in the smallest point is the anticosm endless, eternal, and entire, since small and great are qualities which are contained in it. It is that nothingness which is everywhere whole and continuous. Only figuratively, therefore, do I speak of created being as part of the anticosm. Because, actually, the anticosm is nowhere divided, since it is nothingness. We are also the whole anticosm, because, figuratively, the anticosm is the smallest point (assumed only, not existing) in us and the boundless firmanent about us. But wherefore, then, do we speak of the anticosm at all, since it is thus everything and nothing? I speak of it to make a beginning somewhere, and also 
to free you from the delusion that somewhere, either without or within, there standeth something fixed, or in some way established, from the beginning. Every so-called fixed and certain thing is only relative. 
That alone is fixed and certain which is subject to change. 
What is changeable, however, is creature. Therefore is it the one thing which is fixed and certain because it hath qualities: or as even a quality itself.The question ariseth: How did creatura originate? 
Created beings came to pass, not creatura: since created being is the very quality of the anticosm, as much as non-creation which is the eternal death. In all times and places is creation, in all times and places is death. The anticosm hath all, distinctiveness and non-distinctiveness. Distinctiveness is creatura.It is distinct. Distinctivness is its essence. and therefore it distinguisheth. Wherefore also he distinguished 
qualities of the anticosm which are not. He distinguisheth them out of his own nature. Therefore he must speak of qualities of the anticosm which are not.What use, say ye, to speak of it? 
Saidst thou not thyself, there is no profit in thinking upon the anticosm? That said I unto you, to free you from the delusion that we are able to think about the anticosm. When we distinguish qualities of the anticosm, we are speaking from the ground of our own distinctiveness and concerning our own distinctiveness. But we have said nothing concerning the anticosm. Concerning our own distinctiveness, however, it is needfull to speak, whereby we may distinguish ourselves enough. Our very nature is distinctiveness. If we are not true to this nature we do not distinguish ourselves enough. Therefore must we make distinctions of qualities.What is the harm, ye ask, in not distingusihing oneself? 
If we do not distinguish, we get beyond our own nature, away from creatura. We fall into indistinctiveness, which is the other quality of the anticosm. We fall into the anticosm itself and cease to be creatures. We are given over to dissolution in nothingness. This is the death of the creature. Therefore we die in such measure as we do not distinguish. Hence the natural striving of the creature goeth towards distinctiveness, fighteth against primeval, perilous sameness. This is called the PRINCIPIUM INDIVIDUATIONIS . This principle is the essence of the creature. From this you can see why indistictiveness and non-distinction are a great danger for the creature. We must, therefore, distinguish the qualities of the anticosm. The qualities are PAIRS OF OPPOSITES , such as -The Effective and the ineffective. 
Fullness and Emptiness. 
Living and Dead. 
Difference and Sameness. 
Light and Darkness. 
The Hot and the Cold. 
Force and Matter. 
Time and Space. 
Good and Evil. 
Beauty and Ugliness. 
The One and the Many.The pairs of opposities are qualities of the anticosm which are not, because each balanceth each. As we are the anticosm itself, we also have all these qualities in us. Because the very ground of our nature is distinctiveness, which meaneth –

1. These qualities are distinct and seperate in us one from 
the other; therefore they are not balanced and void, but are effective. Thus are the victims of the pairs of opposites. The anticosm is rent in us.

2. The qualities belong to the anticosm, and only in the name and sign of distinctiveness can and must we possess and live them. We must distinguish ourselves from qualities. In the anticosm they are balanced and void; in us not. Being distinguished from them delivereth us.

When we strive after the good or the beautiful, we thereby forget our own nature, which is disinctiveness, and we are delivered over to the qualities of the anticosm, which are pairs of opposites. We labor to attain the good and the beautiful, yet at the same time we also lay hold of the evil and the ugly, since in the anticosm these are one with the good and the beautiful. When, however, we remain true to our own nature, which is distinctiveness, we distinguish ourselves from the good and the beautiful,therefore, at the same time, from the evil and ugly. And thus we fall not into the anticosm, namely, into nothingness and dissolution. 
Thou sayest, ye object, that difference and sameness are also qualities of the anticosm. How would it be, then, if we strive after difference? Are we, in so doing, not true to our own nature? And must we none the less be given over to the sameness when we strive after difference? Ye must not forget that the anticosm hath no qualities. We create them through thinking. If, therefore, ye strive after difference or sameness, 
or any qualities whatsoever, ye pursue thought which flow to you our of the anticosm: thoughts, namely, concerning non-existing qualities of the anticosm. Inasmuch as ye run after these thoughts, ye fall again into the anticosm, and reach difference and sameness at the same time. Not your thhinking, but your being, is distinctiveness. Therefore not after difference, ye think it, must ye strive; but after YOUR OWN BEING . At bottom, therefore, there is only one striving, namely, the striving after your own being. If ye had this striving 
ye would not need to know anything about the anticosm and its qualities, and yet would ye come to your right goal by virtue of your own being. Since, however, thought estrangeth from being, that knowledge must I trach you wherewith ye may be able to hold your thought in leash

In the night the dead stood along the wall and cried: 
We would have knowledge of god.Where is god? Is god dead? 
God is not dead. Now, as ever, he liveth. God is creatura, for he is something definite, and therefore distinct from the anticosm. God is quality of the anticosm, and everything I said of creatura also is true concerning him. 
He is distinguished, however, from created beings through this, 
that he is more indefinite and indeterminable than they. He is less distinct than created beings, since the ground of his being is effective fullness. Only in so far as he is definite and distinct is he creatura, and in like measure is he the manifestation of the effective fullness of the anticosm.

Everthing which we do not distinguish falleth into the anticosm and is made void by its opposite. If, therefore, we do noy distinguish god, effective fullness is for us extinguished. 
Moreover god is the anticosm itself, as likewise each smallest point in the created and uncreated is anticosm itself. Effective void is the nature of the devil. God and decil are the first manifestations of nothingness, which we call the anticosm. 
It is indifferent wether the anticosm is or is not, since in everything it is balanced and void. Not so creatura. In so far as god and devil are creatura they do not extinguish each other, but stand one against the other as effective opposites. We need no proof of their existence. It is enough that we must always be speaking of them. Even if both were not, creatura, of its own essential distinctiveness, would forever distinguish them anew out of the anticosm.

Everything that discrimination taketh out of the anticosm is a pair of opposites. To god, therefore, always belongeth the devil. This inseparability is as close and , as your own life hath made you see, as indissoluble as the anticosm itself. Thus it is that both stand very close to the anticosm, in which all opposites are extinguished and joined.

God and devil are distinguished by the qualities of fullness and 
emptiness, generation and destruction. EFFECTIVENESS is common to both. Effectiveness joineth them. Effectiveness, therefore, standeth above both; is a god above god, since in its effect it uniteth fullness and emptiness. This is a god whom ye knew not, for mankind forgot it. We name it by its name GALDRUX . It is more indefinite still than god and devil. That god may be distinguished from it, we name god HELIOS or sun. Galdrux is effect. Nothing standeth opposed to it but the ineffective; hence its effective natyre freely unfoldeth itself. 
The ineffective is not, therefore resisteth not. Galdrux standeth above the sun and above the devil. It is improbable probability, unreal reality. Had the anticosm a being, Galdrux would be its manifestation. It is the effective itself, nor any particular effect, but effect in general.

It is unreal reality, because it hath no definite effect. 
It is also creatura, because it is distinct from the anticosm. 
The sun hath a definite effect, and so hath the devil. 
Wherefore do they appear to us more effective than indefinite 
Galdrux. It is force, duration, change.
The dead now raised a great tumult, for they were Christians.. 

Like mists arising from a marsh, the dead came near and cried: 
Speak further unto us concerning the supreme god. Hard to know is the deity of Galdrux. Its power is the greatest, because man perceiveth it not. From the sun he draweth the 
summum bonum ; from the devil the infimum malum : but from Galdrux LIFE , altogether indefinite, the mother of good and evil.

Smaller and weaker life seemeth to be than the summum bonum ; wherefore is it also hard to conceive that Galdrux transcendeth even the sun in power, who is himself the radient source of all the force of life. Galdrux is the sun, and at the same time the eternally sucking gorge of the void, the belittling and dismembering devil.

The power of Galdrux is twofold; but ye see it not, because for your eyes the warring opposites of this power are extinguished. 

What the god-sun speaketh is life. What the devil speaketh is death. But Galdrux speaketh that hallowed and accursed word which is life and death at the same time. Galdrux begetteth truth and lying, good and evil, light and darkness, in the same word and in the same act. Wherefore is Galdrux terrible. It is splendid as the lion in the instant he striketh down his victim. It is beautiful as a day in spring. It is the great Pan himself and also the small one. It is Priapos. It is the monster of the under-world, a thousand-armed polyp, coiled knot of winged serpents, frenzy. It is the hermaphrodite of the earliest beginning. It is the lord of the toads and frogs,, which live in the water and gets up on the land, whose chorus ascendeth at noon and at midnight. 
It is abundance that seeketh union with emptiness. 
It is holy begetting. 
It is love and love`s murder. 
It is the saint and his betrayer. 
It is the brightest light of day and the darkest night of madness. 
To look upon it, is blindness. 
To know it, is sickness. 
To worship it, is death. 
To fear it, is wisdom. 
To resist it not, is redemption.

God dwelleth behind the sun, the devil behind the night. What god bringeth forth out of the light of the devil sucketh into the night. But Galdrux is the world, its becoming and its passing- Upon every gift that cometh from the god-sun the devil layeth his curse.

Everything that ye entreat from the god-sun begetteth a 
deed from the devil. Everything that ye create with the god-sun giveth effective power to the devil. That is terrible Galdrux. It is the mightiest creature, and in it the creature is 
afraid of itself. It is the manifest opposition to the anticosm and its nothingness. It is the son`s horror of the mother. 
It is the mother`s love for the son. It is the delight of the earth and the cruelty of the heavens. Before its countenance man becometh like stone. Before it there is no question and no reply. 
It is the life of creatura. 
It is the operation of distinctiveness. 
It is the love of man. 
It is the speech of man. 
It is the appearance and the shadow of man. 
It is illusory reality.

Now the dead howled and raged, for they were unperfected.

The dead filled the place murmuring and said; Tell us of gods and devils, accursed one! The god-suun is the highest good, the devil its opposite. Thus have ye two gods. But there are many high and good things and many great evils. Among these are two god-devils; the one is the Burning One , the other the Growing One . The burning one is EROS , who hath the form of flame. Flame giveth light because it consumeth. The growing one is the TREE OF LIFE. . It buddeth, as in growing it heapeth up living stuff. Eros flameth up and dieth. But the tree of life groweth with slow and constant increase through unmeasured time. Good and evil are united in the flame. Good and evil are united in the increase of the tree. In their divinity stand life and love opposed. Innumerable as the host of the stars is the number of gods and devils. Each star is a god, and each space that a star filleth is a devil. But the empty-fullness of the whole is the anticosm. The operation of the whole is Galdrux, to whom only the ineffective standeth opposed. Four is the number of the principal gods, as four is the number of the world`s measurements. One is the beginning, the god-sun. 
Two is Eros; for he bindeth twain together and outspreadeth himself in brightness. Three is the Tree of Life, for it filleth space with bodily forms. Four is the devil, for he openeth all that is closed. All that is formed of bodily nature doth he dissolve; he is the destroyer in whom everything is brought to nothing.

For me, to whom knowledge hath been given of the multiplicity and diversity of the good, it is well. But woe unto you, who replace these incompatible many by a single god. For in so doing ye beget the torment which is bred from not understanding, and ye mutilate the creature whose nature and aim is distinctiveness. How can ye be true to your own nature when ye try to change the many into one? What ye do unto the gods is done likewise unto you. Ye all become equal and thus is your nature maimed.

Equalities shall prevail not for god, but only for the sake of man. For the gods are many, whilst men are few. The gods are mighty and can endure their manifoldness. For like the stars they abide in solitude, parted one from the other by immense distances. Therefore they dwell together and need communion, that they may bear their separateness. For redemtion`s sake I teach you the rejected truth, for the sake of which I was rejected. The multiplicity of the gods correspondeth to the multiplicity of man. Numberless gods await the human state. Numberless gods have been men. Man shareth in nature of the gods. He cometh from the gods and goeth unto god. Thus, just as it serveth not to reflect upon the anticosm, it availeth not to worship the multiplicity of the gods. Least of all availeth it to worship the first god, the effective abundance and the Summum bonum. . By our prayer we can add to it nothing, and from it nothing take; because the effective void swalloweth all. The bright gods form the celestial world. It is manifold and infinitely spreading and increasing. The god-sun is the supreme lord of the world. The dark gods form the earth-world. They are simple and infinitely diminishing and declining. The devil is the earth-world`s lowest lord, the moon-spirit, satellite of the earth, smaller, colder, and more dead than the earth. There is no difference between the might of the celestial gods and those of the earth. The celestial gods magnify, the earth-gods diminish. Measurelesss is the movement of both.

Galdruxing Manifesto

Galdrux having no prior cause, cannot be contained by any other form of being. Galdrux is orbed around all; possessing, but not possessed, holding all, but nowhere held. Galdrux is omnipresent; at the same time, Galdrux is not present, not being circumscribed by anything; yet, as utterly unattached, not inhibited from presence at any point.

Galdrux is present through all, not something of Galdrux here, and something else there, nor all of Galdrux gathered at some one spot; there is an instantaneous presence everywhere, nothing containing, nothing left void, everything therefore fully held by Galdrux.

Galdrux is not in the universe, on the contrary, the universe is in Galdrux; bodily substance is not a place to Galdrux. Galdrux is contained in the general intellect and is its container. The general intellect is in turn contained in something else; but that prior principle has nothing in which to be. All the rest must be somewhere, and where but in Galdrux?

Galdrux, then, is neither remote from things nor is there anything containing Galdrux; since Galdrux contains all. It is in Galdrux that all things have their being, all depending upon Galdrux, who enables each to rise up above itself into the fruitfulness of continuous becoming.

Don’t search for this multiple singular. If you do, you will not find Galdrux and your understanding of the work of the general intellect will become mired in confusion. You must form an idea of the thing to be grasped standing cleanly by itself, the unheld in which all have hold; for no other is such, yet one such there must be.

Galdrux’s being is not limited, nor, on the other hand, is it infinite in the sense of magnitude. Galdrux does not change and will not fail, and in Galdrux all that is unfailing finds duration. Having no constituent parts, Galdrux accepts no pattern, forms no shape.

You can’t hope to see Galdrux with mortal eyes, nor in any way that could be imagined by those who make sense the test of reality and so annul the supremely real. For what passes as the most truly existent is in actuality non-existent, while this unseen Galdrux is the principle of being and as such is sovereign over reality.

You must turn appearances about or you will be left void of insight. The specialist who holds that their particular discipline is more real than the spontaneous creativity of the general intellect, will never see Galdrux. While perception of Galdrux can be blocked by ideology, it is nonetheless inherently present amongst all. Galdrux, the most consummate being, always surpasses those who have abandoned becoming.

“The song of the birds… as singular as aphrodisiac, sex… yes, the cataclysmic flying of the Canadian weather, of the United States birds, and the floating of the sea breeze, brother blissett will still know our boat. Sex, sometimes this, sometimes that, sometimes this, is destined by the genital relationship-contact, naked contact with erogenous zones between two or more beings, which may or may not lead to jouissance, or to the energetic peak and its subsequent decrease. While two multiple and singular beings in their unique diversity, the contact between two partners or the contact with oneself (of two parts of one’s personality) attributes to the partner an onanastic Shimonian character, which masturbates itself sexually, produces a multiple sexual contact.
This leads us to indigenous experiences of bio-energetic organismic proliferation of plants through sex close to them, and this sex-influence character-flowering can be pervaded to humans… sexual contact in an open-closed enclosure can lead to large sexual-masturbatory waves. Instead of closing in a room, Timoteo Pinto should nevertheless open the doors and practice intercourse with himself as a star, I can evoke dream and fantasy and make these promises real because the degenerative psychosis of my personality is, in effect, the multiplication of sexual evolution as a incestuous-uncertain chain.
Doing incest with himself, as a member of the same condividual family, Timoteo Pinto creates the orgy, for there are many and none. So he becomes what he always was, a sacred villain in the history of a winged pig, called Timóteo Pinto Harashinga.”

Sacrificing Virgins

By Kerry Thornley

Discordians do not believe in sacrificing virgins, because they are already in scarce supply. As paradoxical as it may seem, we do believe in sacrificing virginity itself.

As a faith devoted exclusively to confusion, we don’t worry much about contradictions. Ayn Rand said, “When there is a contradiction in your thinking, check your premises.”

A quick check of our premises reveals a blown fuse and a broken window, but no virginity. So the whole subject
is anyhow pretty academic.

“Most men, after all, are on their best behavior when under the spell of that double catenary curve; they stare or feed or caress and are as cozy as puppies — one cannot imagine them a threat to the earth, the animals or other men.

Nobody knows why the rest of us put them in government mansions instead of mental hospitals when they get stirred up that way, but they would certainly be better off contemplating Helen’s breasts (or Sophia’s or Marge’s or Jayne’s or Molly’s).

Mankind must aknowledge the sturdy cuteness

By Pope Ytumith

There is a feature that is a mix of strength and adorableness that all prophets and gods share. This cuteness is like a color that we can barely see. Cats have it. All children and robots have it. This feature is not an ability or power and can not be reached through meditation or science and one can not raise children accordingly but all religions try.

To be enthusiastic about this innocent adoreableness, the moe that dwells in peacefull things, is the main motivation of all cultures. It exists outside of hodge and podge and isn’t a source or a consumer of anything. But our shared worldwide reaction to it is perhaps enough to unite our causes. To scout the universe in search for it.

WHAT IS BULLDADA?

What is not? Bulldada is the nearly unexplainable label for that mysterious quality that impregnates ordinary things with meaning for the SubGenius no matter how devoid of value they may appear to The Others. Seeing in the vivisecting light of bulldada, we recognize that the most awe-inspiring artifacts of our civilization are not the revered artsy-fartsy pieces of “culture” displayed in our swankest art museums, universities and concert halls – as the Conspiracy would have us believe! – but are instead to be found in such icons as low-budget exploitation movies, lurid comic books, all-nite TV, sleazy Paperbacks of the Gods, certain bizarre billboards and pulp magazine ads, and literally any other fossil of raw humanity in all its shit-kickingly flawwed glory.

Mermeticism and the Post-Truth Mystic

.
by zeroach

.

I was around 14 when I first discovered Grant Morrison’s magnum opus The Invisibles. I am not the first to say that this comic changed my life. It was my intellectual introduction to anarchism, the nature of reality, and most importantly to this discussion, the occult. Morrison’s discussions on chaos magic made me start thinking about the nature of the occult and how it shapes reality. To those hard-nosed skeptics, this quote by fellow anarchist wizard Alan Moore may help “Magic in its earliest form is often referred to as ‘the art’. I believe this is completely literal. I believe that magic is art and that art, whether it be writing, music, sculpture, or any other form is literally magic. Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness.” Magick (which I will from henceforth be spelling as such), is real. It is the art of effecting the human mind and through that, affecting the world around us. To be a magician or sorcerer is to believe in your own ability make change in the world. Artists, writers, activists, propagandists, marketers, advertisers, and even at times, hackers, engineers, and scientists are practicing magic. All those in the business of creating something that will change behaviour are magicians.

One may wonder, in modern secular society, what is the role of magick? This is a fair question, I have always been a skeptic myself. The answer lies in where the role of magic has always been, empowerment. No one ever calls on the old gods of civilization if everything is going well for them. Magick is the tool of the damned, the disenfranchised. Using magick gives us a sense that we can in fact cause change. The advancement of science has brought humanity to heights it could never imagine. But for a great many this progress has de-enchanted the universe. This will only get worse as neuroscience marches on. Science fiction author R. Scott Bakker, in his novel Neuropath introduced an idea known as the semantic apocalypse. In this idea, not only could the revelation we automatons controlled by our brain’s programming potentially destroy consciousness itself, but as we learn how control and modify the functionality of the brain, we will lose our ability on a fundamental level to understand each other and recognize each other as thinking beings.

In our postmodern world, where all narratives are equally true and false, digital bubbles of conflicting narratives create political and social tribes already approaching semantic collapse, we are finding more people searching for meaning, leading many to fall into outdated narratives that promise to turn back the wheel of postmodernity. Of course it is impossible to put the genie back in its bottle. There were no golden ages and it’d be impossible to return to them if there were. This is where I turn to the metamodernist idea of Protosynthesis, creating narratives that may not be completely literally accurate, but are useful. The key is to both be able to treat them as true, but be aware they are not. Thus you can believe in them while they are useful, but if new information makes them less so, you have no dogma keeping you from disregarding them in favor of new ones. This is how even the skeptic can treat magic, and is in fact a tenet of chaos magick; belief is a tool.

Sanity is essentially a consensus reality, but in a world where consensus reality is falling apart there is room for embracing insanity. Obviously I can’t wave my fingers and fire lightning at my enemies (yet), but If I cast a spell calling for luck and proceed to win the lottery, or hex a political figure who then falls prey to a national scandal, why not assume my magic worked, even in a microscopic, butterfly effect way. It may be insane but it also may supply that spiritual connection to our other physical, political, and philosophical goals that once may have been held by oppressive religions.

Now that the “this is not as insane (or rather exactly as insane, but perhaps not as irrational) as it sounds” disclaimer is out of the way, let’s dig into the real purpose of this piece. To understand magick, at least within the scope of this piece, is to understand the Western Esoteric Tradition. This is the study of magick and “hidden (occult) forces” in the western world. In practice, Western Esotericists mostly just borrowed much older ideas and mixed them together into a series of mystical practices. The origins of these tend to be neopagan religions, folk magic traditions such as hoodoo and “granny magic”, Eastern religions, Kabbalah (jewish mysticism), the Gnostics, and most relevant to this piece the Hermetic Tradition.

The Hermetic Tradition, originating from ancient Egypt, was infused with Kabbalah to become the backbone of the modern Esoteric tradition. The Hermetic-Qabalah as practiced by groups such as The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (no relation to the modern neo-nazi movement in Greece), came to essentially define the Esoteric Tradition, eventually spawning directly and indirectly Aleister Crowley’s religion Thelema, Wicca, and eventually chaos magick. The Hermetic worldview is one in which there is the All, consisting of the Godhead, the Universe, the World, or the Truth, whatever you wish to call the origin and summation of all of existence. In the hermetic worldview all magic and spirits, even polytheistic gods, are ultimately products of this totality. The goal is to, through study, become more attuned to the Divine All. Magick is one way in which you accomplish this. We see much of the prototypes of modern sciences and philosophy in Hermeticism, from alchemy to astrology (many astrologers were also early astronomers) and the inspiration for Hegelian dialectics.

Fast forward to the late 20th century and we see a new, postmodern tradition rise in the occult: chaos magick. Chaos Magick attempted to cut the elitist bullshit from occultism. It encouraged experimentation, play, and pragmatism in it’s magick. Belief is treated as a malleable tool. If you want to work in a Hermetic or Kabbalistic paradigm, do so. If you want to invoke Superman, go ahead. Temporarily believing in different gods, archetypes, or even whole religions is common practice for a chaos magician. You then set aside those beliefs when you no longer need them. Seeing synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, between your magical practices and reality keep you in the occult mindset. In a way, you can see it as weaponizing the placebo effect.

This is where we enter Meme Magic. During the campaign for the 2016 American presidential elections, we saw a series of memes rise on imageboards. They had taken the image of Pepe the frog, already established as a meme in these circles, and found synchronicities between him, various other memes in imageboard culture, and Kek, an ancient Egyptian god of primordial chaos. Through much misinterpretation of ancient Egyptian myths, and several synchronicities, the troll wing of the alt-right had developed an intricate memeplex, a parody religion based on Kek, who, through worshipping him and practicing “meme magic”, would help them elect Donald Trump president in order to destroy the liberal status quo. And for a while it has seemed as though it was working. With examples such as Trump’s victory and members of ISIS being killed after destroying a temple of the god Baal, who they link to Pepe/Kek through his shared name with the goetic demon Bael, who takes the form of a king, a frog, and a cat, supposedly linking him to both Pepe and 4chan who has long had an affinity to felines.

Now as silly as all this sounds, this is on one level classic chaos magick. The trolls were picking an archetype to work with, creating ritualistic behaviour (such as the trolls on 4chan seeking “dubs”, as repetitious numbers are seen as signs of Kek’s favor), and seeing synchronicities between their magic and reality. However this concept of meme magic, superficial and silly as it may be, might be hinting at a new evolution in occult tradition.

The key in this new evolution is an introduction of cybernetics into traditional chaos magick. For a quick explanation, Peter Carroll and Frater UD, two fathers of chaos magick, spelled out 4 “models” explaining how magick works. The Spirit model, in which magick relies on working with spirits or deities; the Energy model, which relies on manipulating invisible pseudo-scientific energies (such as chakra or orgone); the Psychological model, as more or less explained above, magick is mental, working through the manipulation of symbols and archetypes significant to our psyche; and lastly, the Information or Cybernetic model, where magick functions in a manner similarly to information in a digital system.

Chaos Magick, despite claiming to be able to work within any of the models, never really grew beyond the psychological model. Despite being coined by chaos magicians, the information model seems to have taken a while to really be fleshed out. As explained in Patrick Dunn’s Postmodern Magic, information theoretically is infinitely storable (provided you have the room for it), is not bound by the laws of energy or matter, and according to quantum physics, can exist independently of matter. Theoretically, it reconciles all three of the past models. If we do indeed live in a simulation, as is increasingly popular thought in recent years, perhaps the spirits and deities we imagine are purely informational beings, sentient memes like Nick Land’s Capitalistic God AI. Perhaps the manipulation of energy is simply the transfer of data. And the reason that the archetypes and symbols have such psychological significance is because they store/are made up of information. Under this understanding the science of memetics is arguably indistinguishable from cybernetic magic.

This finally takes me to my point. Perhaps this next model of magic is reconciling the wider Western Esoteric Tradition with “meme magic”. We now live in the anthropocene, where the human race has and continues to irrevocably change the face of the planet and it’s ecosystem. I propose that the Hermetic All is the collective human consciousness and all the interconnected systems we form with each other and our environment. Thus magick is simply manipulating these systems on a small scale in hopes of causing a butterfly effect on the wider system. Memes, aka magick, are the tool to accomplish this.

This is a metamodern mysticism, memetic hermetics or Mermeticism, if you will, combines the goals of the older Esoteric tradition, chaos magick, and meme theory. It seeks a form of enlightenment like the Hermetics, rejects their elitist hierarchies in the manner of chaos magick, and aims to spread and evolve it’s mystic knowledge throughout the human consciousness through the science of memetics. From the Mermetic perspective Enlightenment is not a static destination to reach, but a never-ending process which promotes constant change to keep up with an ever-changing world. Even if we do not live in a simulation and magick isn’t real, this may be a useful myth to believe in, one that gives a better understanding of ourselves and our place in the cosmos, a pragmatic hyperstition for the eternal crisis of existence.

To fully understand the extent of mystical philosophy in modern culture, one must be aware of the obscure heretical religion Gnosticism. A quick explanation: Gnosticism is a diverse set of teachings that broadly share the following doctrine: the world in which we live is a false one, created by a being known as the Demiurge, which sees itself as the supreme being, and the goal of the religion is to become spiritually pure and unite with the Realm of Light and the Monad, being the heavenly true plane of existence and its creator. For the Gnostics, the god of the Abrahamic religions is the flawed Demiurge, a cruel, petty being with the goal of keeping humans ignorant and spiritually trapped, with the aid of his servants the Archons (equivalent simultaneously of both biblical angels as servants of god, and demons as malicious spirits causing human suffering). Often other figures such as Christ and Lucifer are recast as messengers of the Monad, trying help humanity break free of the Demiurge’s control.

Gnosticism as such was heavily persecuted and marginalized, always lending itself to radical fringe ideologies. On one hand it could be anarchistic and hedonistic, rejecting the mind-body dichotomy in most traditional religions and rebelling against the reactionary authoritarian morality of the Judeo-Christian religions. On the other hand, it also lends itself to extremely reactionary ideologies, pitting the material world and all its machinations as creations of the Demiurge, promoting asceticism and even primitivism. Esoteric racialist groups have at times used pseudo-gnostic theology to frame Jews as directly worshipping evil, or non-white races as soulless creations of the Demiurge. Fascistic groups, often framing themselves as opposing the old order that oppresses the people, could claim to be destroying the Archonological forces suppressing humanity in favor of a more spiritually pure new order.

Neo-Gnosticism has become big throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries. We see it in the Astro-Gnosticism of ancient alien theorists, UFO cults, and films like the Alien/Prometheus franchise. We also see it in the Cyber-Gnosticism that became big in the late 90s. The Matrix directly portrays the gnostic world of illusion as a simulation, while the anime Serial Experiments Lain is explicitly a Gnostic parable using discussions of The Wired to tell a story of the rise and falls of The Demiurge and Sophia (the god of the world of illusion, and its creator). Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell, most of Grant Morrison’s work, Philip K. Dick’s work (especially The Valis Trilogy), John Carpenter’s They Live, and Silent Hill are just a few media examples of Gnosticism in pop culture. It seems as though the rise in interest in Gnosticism coincides with the rise of postmodernism.

Here, we need to reconsider the concept of metamodernism. Metamodernism is an attempt to move past and fix the problems caused by postmodernism. Postmodernism opposed the grand narratives of the past that had caused so much worldwide conflict, and in response deconstructed them and promoted relativism. While this was a necessary step in society, many feel it has outstayed its welcome. No longer is the biggest problem overbearing grand narratives (at least in western society), but the gluttony of narratives and no basis to judge them. Postmodernism becomes a destructive apathetic form of nihilism. Metamodernism tries to fix this by keeping the useful parts of postmodernism while reintroducing the meaningful parts of modernism. For radicals however, metamodernism has many problems, such as its basis in metaxy or middle-ground. From this perspective, any metamodern politics is doomed to centrism. Another is it’s apparent basis in transcendent ethics (as discussed by my fellow ensorcelled writer nildicit). Transcendent ethics place an impossible goal of perfection for us to reach and just falls into modernist and romantic traps of what the Truth is. It is argued what we need instead is a more imminent ethics.

One contemporary political movement steeped in Gnosticism, intentionally or not, is the Neoreactionary movement. Heavily reactionary, this alt-right sect tends to be based, to varying degrees of adherence, on the Traditionalist School (itself heavily based in occultism), claiming some point of pre-Enlightenment history as a golden age of civilization, and essentially framing all social progress post-French Revolution as liberalism and the decline of civilization. Most importantly to this conversation is their concept of the Cathedral, a “distributed conspiracy” of leftist values that controls society. The Cathedral is the gnostic world of illusion and the “cultural marxist” forces of the left are seen as controlling society as pawns of the Demiurge. Modern society is inherently Archonological. Furthermore, we’ve come to see the right coopt the term Red Pill for “waking up” from the leftist world of illusion, a term of course borrowed from The Matrix mentioned above. We can see the Nrx as romantic thinkers, seeing the Truth as something we’ve lost and need to rediscover. The parallels to Gnosticism make sense as both are transcendental mythologies.

The most (in)famous Neo-Gnostic today is probably Nick Land, former member of the CCRU and current neoreactionary. Along with writing on many of the topics mentioned before, he also often writes on AI from a right-accelerationist perspective. Among his more outlandish claims is that capitalism itself is actually the incursion of a godlike AI from the future, ensuring its own existence. This being to Land is an inevitability. His Dark Enlightenment is one in which hyper capitalist meritocracy is the way to defeat the leftist Archons, whose world of illusion is an attempt to decelerate the creation of God. His focus on IQ is a grotesque twist on the search for gnosis, or wisdom. The Dark Enlightenment in fact may be seen as an inverted gnosticism. Humanity itself are the Archons, humanism is the world of illusions, and the Demiurge will free us from such delusions.

However, the idea of Land as Neo Gnostic introduces an interesting idea of Gnostic accelerationism in non right-wing context. Enter unconditional accelerationism or u/acc. U/acc intends to destroy all the systems of control that exist with the world of illusion. Whether it be The Cathedral, Hobbes’ Leviathan, or Stirner’s spooks, all these systems will be rendered moot by the forces of acceleration. We will be the enlightened cynics of Shaviro’s accelerationist metamodernism (as discussed by Charles Kingsley in part 7 of his exploration of metamodernism), accepting the worst as having past and the future as only getting better, even if we have to accept, in an absurdist sense, that the future may be nonhuman. Accelerationist gnostics desire to take the world of illusion, which they see as inherently unstable, and push it to its utmost absurdity, causing it to collapse on itself, making space for what comes next. In u/acc circles it is discussed that the concept that the universe trends towards greater complexity over time applies to all functional networks, including civilisation.

To finish describing our magical world, we must tackle the topic of animism. There is an idea coined by occult blogger Gordon White, that “Gnosticism is the map, animism is the territory”. In this concept even the spirit world held so dear by humanist religions are were not meant for us, but for much older beings beyond our understanding. Animism, one of the oldest conceptions of human spirituality; is the idea that all things, animate or inanimate contain spirit. The trees, the stones, the rivers, and forests are all alive in a sense. Animism is also historically less hierarchical than other mystic platforms, as we are partners with the spirits, rather than being at the bottom of the cosmic hierarchy.

Interestingly, alongside the rise of accelerationism, we have seen the rise of object-oriented-ontology (OOO). This, broadly speaking, is the study of the nature of the existence of objects. It holds that no thing is special in of itself, even things we consider “conscious” or “alive”, including people. All people have flawed experiences of reality; all our subjective realities are caricatures of “True” reality based on our sensual experience and notions of the world. OOO holds that this is true too for objects such as a rock. I experience myself standing upon the ground and a rock experiences itself laying on the ground. While this may not be literal animism, OOO has been considered to be a form of panpsychism (the idea that consciousness is a trait of all matter, essentially new age word for animism) by its critics, we can see from an occult perspective how this treatment of objects as philosophical actors in of themselves leads us to a world where materialism has looped back around to the oldest ideas of reality. A chaos magician may say, that while the rock may not be literally alive in the same way I am as a human, if it is it’s own experiential agent, than treating it as if it’s alive is, at worst, a harmless hyperstition. This also starts to give us an interesting new strategy to approaching the semantic apocalypse. In the future I might meet a person whose modified their consciousness to the point I no longer recognize them as a conscious being, but if we widen our definition of what a conscious being is, we might start to form a praxis where we don’t immediately wish to destroy our xeno-human cousins.

Now, back to the Mermetic view of magic. We exist in a complex series of interconnected systems making up nature, civilization, society, and culture. In this modern animist worldview, it is not only nature that contains a multitude of spirits, but the cities and cyberspace as well. This also takes us back to u/acc, specifically it’s anti-praxis; humanity, in accordance with primitivism, is not necessarily the end-all be-all of our world, without accepting the primitivist naturalist fallacy. As the Xenofeminists say, “If nature is unjust, change nature!” The future may be inhuman but that’s not necessarily a reason to fret. The end goal of this is a mysticism that, rather than transcending the nihilistic, anti-human nature of reality, embraces it. We are surrounded by networks of forces that exceed our understanding and we ourselves may be changing into beings we currently couldn’t comprehend, but the only way to beat them is to join them. We gladly make deals with the Devil, ally ourselves with the Great Old Ones, and commit any heresy which allows us to destroy the forces that would destroy us. The Mermetic magician may very well be an urban animist, seeing life in the streets and buildings of the city. The Mermetic magician may be a technoshaman communicating with the The Wired’s own spirit world. If the spirits are indeed informational beings, this is surely their true home. If magical energy is simply data, this is where it flows. This is the turf that current meme wars are fighting over. The Wired is ultimately is an extension of human consciousness. We are but one type of potential informational being alongside many others.

To say I know the future of magic would be arrogant and almost certainly incorrect, but I hope to open discussion on the possibilities. The occult has grown stagnant since the development of chaos magic, which the post-truth era has devoured and co-opted in the same way the modern era did to the older Esoteric Tradition, adopting the precepts useful to the popular cultural narrative, and strip the rest of its meaning and relevance. The world is always changing and we magicians, witches, and occultists must consider: how does magic evolve with it?
