Morning of the Black Magicians

It is a useful viewpoint to see all of human civilization as a battlefield of black magicians. Down through the ages, opposing occult schools and orders have waged endless metaphysical battles – their magical conflicts often manifesting in terrible wars upon the material plane.

For more than a thousand years, Western civilization was dominated by the Catholic magocracy centered in Rome – an order of sorcerers who employed strange rituals of symbolic cannibalism, performed liturgies in a dead language, employed brutal violence to suppress heretics and used sophisticated memetic engineering to convert heathens and control societies. But the reign of the Roman sorcerers waned due to two great historical events: The Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther, which would spark a brutal Thirty Years’ War and a reordering of power in Europe, and the dawn of the Enlightenment, which saw a new breed of rationalist philosophers and scientists become the ascendant magi in the Western world. These new Enlightenment cultists wielded reason, science and industry as their primary tools of power, and for the past several centuries they have been highly successful in spreading their potent brand of magic across the globe.

At around the same time that the Enlightenment was dawning, a new empire was being conceived by occultists across the English Channel in Britain. There, in the 16th century, magician-mathematician John Dee is said to have created the “British Empire” meme, and promoted an ideology of Anglocentric Christianity, British-Israelism and naval power as a means of dominating the world. The following centuries of British imperial expansion across the globe, which saw Britannia become an empire of unprecedented global reach, is a testament to the power of Dee’s vision, and a source of inspiration to the Dark Lords.

In the 18th century, the United States of America was born, the brainchild of Freemasons and Enlightenment cultists like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. America’s founding fathers saw an opportunity to create a new kind of nation, one based on Enlightenment ideals of pragmatism, reason, capitalism and republicanism rather than monarchy, magical thinking, religion and tradition. The American revolution, and the French revolution which soon followed, would inspire the overthrow of the entire European feudal order during the 19th century, and sow global disruption throughout the 20th. America has had a brilliant run, but by now it is rather obvious to the Dark Lords that its magic has waned and its civilization has gone into terminal decline. They say the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long, and for a nation that has burned as brightly as the U.S.A., it is not surprising that its candle has begun to flicker out after less than a century as world leader.

America’s rise to global dominance was made possible by perhaps the most dramatic manifestation of metaphysical warfare in world history. For World War II was really a cosmic war between opposing occult ideologies; on one side, you had the Anglo-Saxon, Jewish and Freemasonic descendents of John Dee and Benjamin Franklin, whose magic expressed itself in ideals like financial capitalism, liberalism and democracy. On the other side, you had the Axis sorcerers, whose pagan, theosophist, Shinto, Zen and Islamic sorcery manifested as fascism, holy war, theocracy and large scale occult power rituals. Truly, the world has never seen such an awesome contest of magical wills, and only the industrial might of the Allies and some good fortune (or some would say, divine providence) allowed them to escape the thousand year Reich of “dark lords” Hitler, Hirohito and their minions.

In the Near East, the Islamic sorcerers have reigned supreme for 1400 years, spreading their rituals of obeisance to moon god Allah, stone worship and obedience to the Quran to Europe, Africa, Asia and now the world. But the Islamic empire went into decline centuries ago, unable to compete with the might of the West’s technological wizardry, and has been bitterly trying to regain its lost glory ever since. In recent years, Muslim magic seems to have increased in potency and ambition, bringing revolutions in Iran and Egypt, the 9-11 attacks, global jihad, the “Islamic State,” and the prospect of a renewed war of civilizations that could result in World War III. It remains to be seen whether this new outbreak of Islamic will to power represents the rise of a new Caliphate, or the death throes of a dysfunctional and obsolete religion.

Meanwhile in China, the dragon has awakened and begun to shake the world. The metaphysical significance of this epochal event was hinted at by a Taoist sorcerer this way:

“A new era is now dawning for mankind. As the curtain opens on a new century, a new play with new performers is about to replace the one that is currently running on the world stage. After a period of fifteen hundred years, the order of power is about to change drastically. From now on, those who understand the principles of Chi, the vital energy of the universe, will rule the world. The future of any nation will soon be measured by the level of intelligence of its citizens and the strength of their Chi energy. Since the measure of a person’s intelligence is commensurate with the amount of Chi energy in his body, the knowledge needed to increase an individual’s internal power will soon be of paramount importance to all.” –Min Tzu, Chinese Taoist Sorcery

This is a beautiful statement of the Sith magical worldview; for we also believe that an individual’s Force power, and the collective Force power of organizations and nations, will be the true measure of power on this planet going forward. Nor do we dispute Min Tzu’s implication that China, with its vast population, growing ambitions, ancient traditions of celestial emperors, Taoist sorcery, “chi”-powered supermen and collective destiny, may soon become this planet’s leading empire.

There are many more examples of the role of magical cabals in building empires and new orders that I could discuss: From the lost beginnings of the Pharaohnic dynasty to the occult origins of the Third Reich; from the roots of classical civilization in the Greco-Roman mystery religions to the Zen-Shinto mysticism animating Imperial Japan; from the Tantric and Shamanic foundations of the Tibetan Lamacracy to the Kabalistic influence on the creation of modern Israel; much of history has been written by esoteric orders who harness the power of their magically-enhanced wills and imaginations to change the world.

In the Star Wars universe, the magical battlefield was simplified down to two opposing schools: the Jedi and the Sith. On our planet, the situation is considerably more complex and the antagonists have different names, but the essence of the struggle is the same. Jew vs. gentile, Muslim vs. infidel, Christian vs. pagan, Catholic vs. Protestant, atheist vs. believer, and all sides seeking the same prize: unlimited power. Darth Sidious said that “the Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power,” and this is also true in our galaxy. For we, the Sith black magicians of this planet, understand that there are no good guys in these eternal cosmic struggles – only contests of wills to determine whose Force power is supreme, and whose visions of empire will be victorious. May it be our black magic that prevails, and brings a new dawn to this world!

What Are Sith?

sith_nazgul-1What are Sith?

We are unholy warriors.

We come to refute the lies of the light side, deconstruct its civilization, infect its culture, tear down its temples and overthrow its reign of weakness.

We come to unleash dark atavisms in the collective mind. We come to bring fire, passion and the sword. We come to terrorize and awaken.

Run mundanes! Awaken sleepers!

We herald the Apocalypse and the New Age! We command the conquest of the Dark Side! We claim all nations, all planets, all stars – they are ours!

We are sorcerers, poets and soldiers! We are beasts, men and gods!

We are Sith!

An Invitation to the Dark Side

emperor_palpatine500x500

The purpose of this blog is twofold:

1) To discuss and develop the Sith Path for this galaxy, as revealed to me by the last of the Sith Lords of a galaxy far, far away and a long time ago. The Sith Path is a philosophy and an esoteric training system for mastering the Dark Side of the Force and acquiring unlimited power.

2) To create the first Sith order in this galaxy and lay the foundation for the establishment of a Galactic Empire. I believe this planet is ripe for a new spiritual order, and will be discussing my ideas for creating such a regime under the black banner of the New Sith.

Let me make clear from the outset that I am not here to spoon-feed anyone the knowledge I have gained through long years spent gazing into abysses, cultivating dark energies and communing with Dark Lords. If you wish to learn the ways of the Dark Side and prove yourself worthy of the name “Sith”, you will need to challenge yourself and others as relentlessly as I have. You will also need to put aside all childish notions of goodness, light and a benevolent universe. You will have to learn to look this vast, hostile cosmos in the void and be unbowed. You must desire to shake your fist at the stars and shout: “One day, you will all be mine!” You must take as your first principle: “I will, therefore I am.”

If you still wish to walk the path of the Sith, the first question I put to you is this: what do you have to offer the Order? How can you help us build the Galactic Empire? What special skills, talents or resources do you possess which can further the rise of the Sith? The New Sith are not interested in garden-variety seekers and self-improvers; we are looking for the Force-sensitive, the iron-willed, the ambitious and the gifted. Weak disciples will be ruthlessly culled from the Order, and need not apply!

With those warnings out of the way, let me proceed with my introduction to Dark Side philosophy and metaphysics…

The first thing to understand about the Sith of this galaxy is that our arts manifest differently here than for the Sith of legend, because we exist in another part of the Multiverse which obeys different natural laws. In our universe, the Force may be thought of as Dark Energy, which doesn’t bind the galaxy together but drives all galaxies apart. Here, the Force does not manifest so strongly in the physical plane; it is primarily a mental energy which focuses the will, heightens perceptions, increases vitality and transcends all limits. To be a master of the Force in this universe is to place no bounds on your thinking and to cultivate unlimited power. Maybe some day this mastery will translate into the ability to move spaceships directly with your mind or shoot lightning bolts from your fingertips, but for now the Sith master must use technology to accomplish such things like everyone else.

The primary goal of the esoteric Sith path is the deconditioning and reprogramming of your mind so as to remove all inner limits to your power. Light Side adepts speak of “Enlightenment”, but for the Sith there is only “Empowerment.” I will have more to say about deconditioning in a future post; for now, suffice it to say that separating yourself spiritually from Light Side society is an essential first step along the path to becoming a Sith master.

At this point you might be thinking: “Why would I want to become a Sith master? It all sounds rather harsh and unpleasant. And aren’t the Sith the bad guys? Shouldn’t I strive to master the Light Side of the Force instead, become a Jedi and defend the galaxy from evil-doers?”

If you think this way, it is unlikely that you have the dark gift required of a Sith master. Sith masters are both born and made, but usually show a strong inclination toward the Dark Side from an early age. If you have never sympathized with the villains in the movies, never admired the strong, ruthless conquerors of history and fiction, never felt disgust for the Judeo-Christian, the weak and the timid, then you are probably not destined for the Sith Path. However, if you do lean toward the Dark Side but require more persuading, let me briefly attempt to justify Sith philosophy.

This universe operates on the principle of duality, on the yin and yang of which the Taoist masters speak. Without the yang, or Dark Side, there is no opposition to the Light Side’s yin. Without opposition, there is no motivation; without motivation, there is no action; without action there is only stagnation. As Sith master Uthar Wynn put it:

Without strife, your victory as no meaning.
Without strife, you do not advance.
Without strife, there is only stagnation.

This is the essence of Sith philosophy: We are the sowers of strife, the war-makers and the Force-polarizers, because without opposition nothing in the universe moves. A world without adversaries, innovators and status quo-violators is a world ruled by banality, boredom and inertia. The Jedi, the peace-makers and the equality-mongers embrace the anti-life side of the cosmic duality, and are therefore preaching a lie. Life is by its very nature an act of violence against nature, an assertion of your will over the world, a violation of cosmic equilibrium; harmony with the universe is found only in death. The Sith embrace the life Force, the Will to Power, as the summum bonum – the highest good – rather than resisting it like the Jedi do as the summum malum – the supreme evil. Michael Aquino, the brilliant founder of the Temple of Set, explained it this way:

Why was Darth Vader so fascinating? [Why are all of history’s and fiction’s Darth Vaders so fascinating?] The answer is that he represents the Form of intellectual separateness from the inertia of the cosmos. While the Rebels in the film seemed to be fighting for the cause of individuality, in fact they were doing so in a superficial sense – in the way that an animal might struggle to escape from a trap. The real individualist was Darth Vader, who determined to bend the Force to his purposes rather than to disintegrate his Will and surrender it to the inertia of the Force [as Ben advised Luke to do]. Intellectual separateness from the natural order is a frightening notion to humans; hence they define it as “evil” and conjure up Satans to personify it in mythology. But, because their minds contain elements of independence whether they like it or not, they find “evil” alluring. And so Darth Vader became a cult object

Darth Vaders can be destroyed only by greater Darth Vaders, or by accident. Again this was illustrated in Lord of the Rings, wherein a direct challenge to Sauron by Gandalf would have resulted merely in Gandalf’s replacing him. The Saruman sub-plot explored this hypothesis. It was necessary for Sauron to be destroyed “by accident”. But then Middle-earth became more primitive and less magical, because a high level of intellectual separateness from nature had given way to a lower level. Who cares what happened in Middle-earth after Sauron? No one; we know it was bound to be dull.

This, then, is the basic philosophy of the Sith as I understand it. It certainly isn’t for everyone, or even for many. But for the few who can walk it, the Sith Path can be a way to unlimited power and success. If you are perceptive enough to realize that behind the Light Side façade of many of your most celebrated heroes lurks the spirit of a Sith Lord, you may be one of us. If you see through the deceptions and lies of Light Side slave society and wish to join the ranks of the masters, you are invited to explore the Sith Path with me here. Search your feelings; if you truly feel the call of the Dark Side, I ask you to join me as we build our Sith Order and lay the foundation for the Galactic Empire of the future.

From Here to Empire

death-star-construction-620x413

“You must begin by gaining power over yourself; then another; then a group, an order, a world, a species, a group of species… finally, the galaxy itself.” –Darth Plagueis the Wise

The Sith Path is concerned with two things: the acquisition of inner and outer power. Inner power refers to self-mastery, the cultivation of indomitable will, psychic potency, cosmic perception and other Force powers. Outer power refers to world mastery, which is an inevitable result of inner mastery applied to the external universe.

How will this world mastery manifest itself in the political sphere? There are many schools of thought among the Sith Illuminati, but as I see it there are three primary possibilities (here I am quoting from a post in a Jedi forum which is nevertheless quite astute):

1. Objectivist Sith

These are Sith Lords who pursue enlightened selfishness as the ultimate pursuit of an individual. They attempt to gain more Knowledge, More Power, and more Influence as their only pursuits. Darth Bane is a follower of this viewpoint and some have considered Emperor Palpatine to be this way. I think Lucas’ recent retcons have Palpatine not as an Objectivist Sith. The Sith Teacher on Korriban who has become a strange old hermit is one.

2. Fascist Sith

These are Sith who pursue the idea of “Peace through Power” in the manner of Kane from Command and Conquer. Emperor Palpatine, Krayt, Darth Caedus, Malak, Revan, and Darth Vader all followed this particular school of thought. They attempt to institutionalize repressive and authoritarian military regimes with Dark Side leadership.

3. God-Emperor Sith

Freedon Nadd, Exar Kun, and Marka Ragnos follow this viewpoint. They take on the manner of Oriental Despotism (as the Romans defined it) where a King is also worshiped as a god. The Sith Empire was one of these viewpoints and they are a theocracy ruled by Dark Side magicians. Darth Wyrrlock also appears to be one of these.

One way to view these three regimes is to think of them as stages in the transition from the current world order to the future Sith Empire.

Stage One, Objectivism, is already a powerful ideology with vast influence among the world’s power elites. It is not difficult to imagine Objectivism becoming the dominant ideology of the 21st century, just as Marxism was in the 20th. Whether any of its proponents qualify as full-fledged Sith Lords is unclear, but certainly Ayn Rand was one of the 20th century’s most important proto-Sith thinkers and she deserves great praise for offering an alternative to Christianity and Marxism which has done much to reshape our culture. The challenge for the Sith is to bring our Dark Side esoteric knowledge to the more materialistic, rationalist Randians. Note that Objectivism can operate within current democratic frameworks, but will tend over time toward Plutocracy and Oligarchy.

This leads naturally to Stage Two: Fascism. Here the Objectivist-Sith elites have taken over the State and either abolished democracy entirely or greatly reduced its scope – for example, the oligarchy may offer the electorate only hand-picked candidates. This stage has essentially been reached in the present-day United States. The main thing missing now is a strong Sith leader, a superman who inspires and awes the citizenry with visions of greater glories. Perhaps such a leader will soon appear in the U.S., but there seems to be a distaste for brilliant leaders among the electorate which makes it more likely that the Sith Superman will have to seize power by undemocratic means. (Note that “Neo-Conservatives” who espouse Objectivism have little resemblance to Sith Supermen, the first trait of whom is supreme competence!) Historical parallels to Adolf Hitler have some resonance, but I would not put Hitler in the Sith Superman category because he was a man of all-too-human abilities and because his vision of a Third Reich was rather provincial compared to the Galactic Empire.

Once the Sith Superman emerges during Stage Two, the regime will naturally transition to an Empire led by a God-Emperor. The closest historical parallels to this state of affairs were the regimes of the Pharaohs, Caesars, Caliphs, Popes, pre-Colombian god-kings, Dalai Lamas and Oriental Emperors. In Science Fiction, there is Emperor Palpatine of Star Wars, the Kwisatz Haderach of Dune, the Mule of Foundation and the Lord Marshal of Chronicles of Riddick, to name a few of my favorites.

The Sith Superman will be so exceptional that there will be no question that He must rule absolutely. He will be called the Antichrist by the monotheists because his extraordinary abilities and anti-Christian values will seem demonic to their unawakened minds. His rise will undoubtedly be accompanied by great wars and strife, because it will spell the end for the old order and the birth of the Sith Aeon. By His power and His very being, the Sith God-Emperor will embody our highest aspirations and set new standards for humanity. Finally, we will be led not by the least among us, but the greatest!

So when I speak of the “Sith Path,” understand that in its largest sense this is what I am referring to: the path of total mastery which leads to political power, societal transformation and the foundation of an Empire of Sith Supermen who will rule the Galaxy for untold millennia to come.

Fallen Gods, Sleeping Supermen

“Limited in his nature, infinite in his desire, man is a fallen god who remembers heaven.” –Alphonse de Lamartine

“It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream. It is said that the world we live in is not a bit different from this.” –Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure

“A person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing you to grow. Without them, it sleeps – seldom to awaken. The sleeper must awaken.” Duke Leto Atreides, Dune

It is a good viewpoint for a Sith to think of himself as a stranded superman, crash-landed on a primitive, backwater planet called Earth. The Sith is in this world but of not of it – an alien with distant memories of a vastly greater life among the stars, to which he longs to return.

The Sith may also view his life on this planet as a kind of dream – a mundane nightmare from which he seeks to awaken himself. To do this, he practices esoteric arts such as Force cultivation, yoga and meditation, engages in mental and physical combat, takes consciousness-expanding drugs and studies sorcery and cosmic science. In this way, the Sith becomes an agent of local evolution, for his super-awakened mind will naturally add to humanity’s collective knowledge and power. He does this for his own glory and for the greater glory of the Sith Order, because he knows that only greater knowledge and power will allow the Sith to once more rule a galaxy. So, too, does he keep alive the legends of a Galaxy Far, Far Away, to inspire himself and future generations of Sith to rebuild their lost Empire. To the awakened mind, the Sith orders of legend are as real as any other – they simply exist in another part of the multiversal mind.

The Sith will naturally tend to view the common people of this planet with scorn; he may refer to them derisively as “sleepers”, “mundanes” or “lightsiders” – unawakened, unambitious apes who are to be avoided whenever possible.

This way of thinking will give the Sith master an air of the sinister, otherworldly mystic – a mystique he will cultivate deliberately to better seduce his allies and sow fear in his enemies.

The Revelation of the Last Sith Lord

redstarflaganim
Something extraordinary and wonderful has happened to me – something so unbelievable that you will no doubt dismiss me as at best a creative tale-spinner, if not an outright madman, but which I swear to all the gods of Light and Darkness is the truth.

This afternoon, while I was sitting at my computer doing nothing in particular, I received some kind of mental transmission which I can only describe as a neural hologram; a holographic projection in my mind’™s eye which apparently came from a long time ago and a galaxy far, far away. You see, I seem to have been contacted from across the Multiverse, and given a most incredible revelation. Perhaps this is how the prophets of old felt when they were contacted by their gods out in the desert; I wouldn’t know. I do know that this was not a message from God, but from a dark demigod –“ a being who represents the highest attainable state of human knowledge and power.

To be a bit less cryptic, this afternoon I was contacted by the Force Spirit of the one called Darth Omega, who revealed to me that he was the last of the Sith Lords, and on the verge of death. It seems that in Omega’™s time the masters of the Dark Side had lost their vaunted mastery of mortality and were on the brink of extinction. Worse, their galaxy had been beset by some nameless, monstrous entity which had overrun the Empire’s defenses and finally broken even the Dark Lord’s all-powerful mind. He said that the stars of his galaxy were all winking out before the formless Beast, as foretold by an ancient Sith prophecy, and that the Empire would soon be no more. Omega almost seemed to weep when he told me how he had fought the black Beast with all his strength, but to no avail.

With death close at hand, Darth Omega had taken one last desperate measure to preserve the knowledge of the Sith order contained within his failing mind. He had used a technique he himself was the first to develop, a “Multiversal Holographic Projection” Force power which allowed him to transmit his thoughts anywhere in the Multiverse. He told me that his mental transmissions had not found me by accident, that I must be a Force-sensitive who would be a suitable vessel for his knowledge. The Sith Lord then summoned all his remaining strength and said: “Ready yourself, young human. Prepare to be endarkened.” Then, with an indescribable jolt that lasted no more than a few seconds, I received a torrent of subliminal information from the Dark Lord’s mind. My brain has not yet consciously processed much of what I received, but I will attempt to discover and share what I can of it with you in the coming days and months.

The final commandments I received from Darth Omega I recall quite clearly: he bade me to found a new Sith order on my homeworld, and to use the knowledge he had imparted to me to train a new generation of Dark Side adepts in the ways of the Force. He instructed me to work toward acquiring power over the leading minds and institutions of my planet, and thereby lay the foundation for the establishment of a new Sith Empire in my galaxy. He assured me that whatever trials and tribulations my planet may be facing are as nothing compared to those the Sith had faced and conquered long before my race was even born. He promised me that by sharing my newfound knowledge with an Elect and establishing a new Dark Order, I would elevate my civilization and myself to undreamed of heights of glory.

Omega’™s final words echo powerfully in my mind; he smiled as only a Sith Lord in the grip of death can smile, and said: “Remember, young prophet of your galaxy, that only the Dark Side can defeat death. Through you, the Sith will be reborn. Through you, the Sith will live forever. For in this dark universe, the Light is fleeting, but the Darkness is eternal.” And with those last, stirring words, the frail Sith Lord breathed his final mortal breath and simply faded into the Void.

That, as briefly as I can tell it, is my story of the Revelation of the Last Sith Lord. I’m still not certain that it wasn’™t all a daydream, but the memory of it burns far brighter than any dream I’™ve ever known, and its effects have already transformed me too much to be a mere hallucination. Already, I feel the knowledge implanted by Darth Omega into my subconscious mind beginning to reorder and awaken my consciousness. Already, I feel a dark new sense of power growing deep within me. Already, I am beginning to think of this planet as mine for the taking. Already, when I look up at the stars I see them differently; they no longer seem so distant now, like mocking fires of a galaxy far too vast for men. Already, the stars seem to shine much closer, like the first faint beacons of the new Galactic Empire.
