Lots to look at today, but I’ll settle for another pass at satanic panic, since Jeff Wells snagged a good interview here.
I wouldn’t call this a structured essay cause I’m f-ing tired but there’s a few things that bug me about this. I’ve noticed that very few occultists, or even people versed in authentic occultism take a pass at this stuff, and I can see why.
at first glance what these people seem to be doing appears to have virtually nothing in common with occultism as it’s usually practiced in the hermetic, kabbalisitc, or thelemic tradition. There are really only very passing similarities in terms of symbolism, and what there is sounds kind of contrived.
I’m going to proceed from the notion that there is something actually going on, not only because I think there is, but because there’s more than a little evidence to say that there’s something pretty fucked up happening
the first thing that bugs me is that so much of this stuff seems to come from some kind of common template. There’s no rule written somewhere that occult rituals have to be a certain way. In fact it’s a matter of secrecy to have idiosyncratic elements to your rituals.
so what gives? I don’t really buy that there’s some overarching conspiracy that brackets the earth orchestrating the mass rape and sacrifice of children. What I do buy is that there’s some kind of common belief system or archetype that shapes these practices, and that’s what is global. It’d be too hard to coordinate this in multiple countries and yet the similarity is present pretty much everywhere I’ve read about it. What this tells me is that there is something like a religious undercurrent to this. Why in hell would they do this with such regularity and brazen precision? The timing and regularity of the practice itself must have meaning. It’s not hard to imagine a whole alternate religion in the halls of the upper class the world over. It’s not like hidden religions are any thing new.
The other thing that bothers me is the total lack of subtlety and nuance to this stuff. Compared to the average ritual, this is like getting hit in the head with a sledgehammer. It’s like the average occultist smokes weed and these guys are hitting the crack pipe 24-7. The whole thing smacks of pandering to extremely jaded and unrefined palates. Torture, murder, rough sex, incest, all very heavy taboo shit, designed to give spoiled rich fucks a little jolt. It also tells me that these guys are not aiming for higher realms. This is subhuman animal possession bestial shit. Power, sexual potency, domination, etc etc… Very primitive primal lizard brain shit.
the use of the kids is also characteristic. There’s no mention of adults right? So what gives with the kids? Besides the extra taboo jolt? Well from an energetic standpoint, the damage you do to a small child stays done, and essentially makes them a shell for the rest of their lives, whereas an adult will recover, albeit lessened. You’ve essentially taken one player out of the intitiatory game for life, even if they do recover a rudiment of normal function, they’re not gonna be a spiritual master of anything barring a miracle. You’ve also created a broken person who’s likely to pass the trauma onto the next generation. Which probably explains where all these freaks come from in the first place. god help them all.
I can visualize a secretive cult’s elite culture that enforces control over it’s members by use of blackmail and simple isolation. Once you’re in this stuff you’re never gonna be out of it. Any level of participation essentially strips you of the emotional hardware to have relationships with normal people. If you say anything you’re a pariah and target for life, and nobody believes you anyway.
and what the hell for? Well the usual. Lust, power, intimidation, influence, money, and it’s just barely possible that the person or persons who drew up the template for this stuff knew he was creating a mechanism that would put a millstone around the collective spiritual neck of humanity. An assembly line for hollowed out sex slaves, killers, child kidnappers, drug users and drug dealers, blackmail operators, and intelligence assets, with the odd promising prospect picked out to join the big leagues of counter initiatory perversion and sadism. It’s the ultimate counter culture that creates it’s own members while chewing up the social, moral and spiritual fabric of the human race.
but don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll only run this planet for another century or two, tops….
cancer can only go so far before it kills the host, after all.
