A Teaser from "Psychedelic Spirituality" (Forthcoming)

The following is a short excerpt from my upcoming work which speaks of psychedelic, mind altering substances, their vast importance in spirituality past and present, and all related topics; from the drug war (and its failure) to theoretical physics, as intertwined with psychonaut culture. The trifecta of views regarding the usage or non-usage of “drugs” is one of the backbones of this work, because it connects with such great ease to the vast majority of public conceptions regarding the use of such substances- especially those for which drug scheduling is dubious at best (for example, psilocybin is not actually addictive and marijuana is not actually substantially physically harmful.)…

“Technically there are three schools of thought behind the usage of psychedelics, and this is perhaps the most important part of my own discourse here on the subject; psychedelic literature, action, and speech, falls into these three categories with such a level of ease that they might as well be doppelgangers for the philosophies they intertwine with. We might liken the drug war and its proponents with moralism but it is even more paired with outright asceticism or literally the withholding of, avoidance of, or shunning in some way of materialism. The stoner culture (as opposed to psychonaut culture at large) represents rather a form of hedonism or unregulated variant of pleasure for pleasure’s sake. Psychonauts themselves fall within the category of Epicurean philosophy which of course involves not hedonistic materialism and surely not asceticism or moralism, but rather enjoyment of simple things.
These two latter groups at first appear similar until one applies the concept of how substances are used and for what goal. The stoner is most commonly just looking to get high for getting high’s sake, while the psychonaut is attempting to glean spiritual or philosophical wisdom from the use of the same substances. The former is unconcerned with wisdom.
That is not to say that the recreational use of substances is inherently “bad” or “wrong”- at this point few people see a problem with the occasional beer or joint- but the manner in which the substances are used seems perhaps less pure or spiritual and is relegated to materialism. While the ascetic applies spiritual moralism (for that is how the drug war and temperance movement arose) or its more secular offshoots to mind altering substances and believes they should not be used because they are harmful on a spiritual or physical level the hedonistic stoner believes they should be used because they are desirable on the same levels. The psychonaut Epicurean meanwhile relegates the should/should not dichotomy to irrelevance and simply does these things for some spiritual purpose, disdaining the other two groups on the basis that both avoid actual wisdom which might otherwise be gleaned from the experience or lack thereof. Just as the moral ascetic may fast to attain a wise state, so may the psychonaut indulge to do the same; the materialist is unable to glean spiritual wisdom because it is not sought at all.”

The Occult Compendium

Several years ago I wrote a work entitled Musings: The Occult Compendium. While I was pleased with the content of this work, the format was anything but sophisticated, and the editing needed a little more work. With that in mind I reformatted everything, re-edited it into its new form, and released it here under its new title.
The contents are fairly straightforward; rather than one specific topic it compiles shorter works on related topics; the psychic arts, curses, occult analysis of pop culture, and a refutation of asceticism and why it must be refuted in favor of a more Epicurean ideal. Along with this I included a short list of resources for those interested in the more occult, mystic tradition of spirituality, as well as a long run down on some modern Satanic philosophy.
The original, less attractive work had a more generic cover and was in entirely the wrong trim- an amateurish mistake I made because I was not yet fully used to the createspace design; as well I added a new introduction and table of contents, as well as more content.
It may be seen as a companion to my latest occult work, Occult Philosophy for the Modern Age.

Occult Philosophy For the Modern Age

At last, after two years of writing, editing, and illustrating- my guide to occult philosophy is finally available on Amazon.

I started this work in 2013- for a year it was mostly written but hadn’t been edited because I was so busy with other projects, namely “Ashes” and “Morbid Stories.” I took the liberty of applying my own digitized artwork to it for two reasons; first, I can work a lot faster than anyone I’d fund to illustrate, and secondly I can absolutely control the content to my hearts’ content- sometimes complete symmetry is desirable, but for this type of work I prefer material that more closely resembles digitized sketches that have nonetheless been altered to be more appealing.

The work stands at 198 pages- much of its content is metaphysical, although it applies one general overarching concept to various things within the occult and the paranormal; the basic concept around which most other passages revolve is the concept of oscillation and of evolution as applied to non biological principles; this allows the redefinition of virtually every other occult and mystic concept. In days of old I never realized this, but once it became apparent that this could be applied to occult topics and even every secular topic it became monumentally important to define it- for it is the eternal kampf in its pure form; not the watered down, bastardized version used by racial nationalists but rather the evolutionary component applied to every field.

It is through this struggle, and through many cycles, and through random convolution, that I believe all other occult principles and phenomena operate and manifest; this work, then, describes it in minute detail.

Thus I offer this as my own handbook to guide the occultists of the world in what is, as of now, a sort of guide to my own system and path.

The Nonfiction Bible: The One True Word of God At Last

At long last the Nonfiction Bible has been completed. All prior spiritual works- the KJV, the Talmud, the Quran, the Book of Mor(m)on, are all hereby supplanted and invalidated by the final, absolute, undeniable, unchanging version of god’s word (Copyright 2015, God.)

As it states inside of the Nonfiction Bible itself, it is directly inspired by and directed by god himself. We know this is true, because the book is holy and says so. Inside, you will find, at last, the true story of Jesus fighting a dragon outside of Jerusalem, of his hippie days in Haight-Ashbury swallowing mushrooms and strawberries, and the age old story of Jonah and why god really had him swallowed by a fish. So too does it tell the true stories of Noah, Moses, Adam and Eve, the Revelation of John, and much more.

Its final culmination; an epic battle between the forces of Jesus and Satan over their favorite musical genres, during which they both unveil their final abominable weapons of war, attempting to destroy one another for eternity.

Coming Soon: We Have A Bible!

In the last few weeks I’ve been feverishly working on a project to revamp and recompile the “Holy Bible” into a modern format. I came to the realization that all other bibles were full of nonsense and were boring, so I decided to improve them. The author is necessarily listed as god; because its content is thereby absolutely, inerrantly true and can’t be questioned at all without a person becoming a hellbound eternal sinner.

When I first started I intended to use the same format as the KJV- basically broken down into the canonical books (Exodus, Luke, etc) and then merely remade to better fit the will of this one male singular anthropic deity, but I abandoned the first draft when I realized that format was part of what makes all other bibles boring. Therefore, I made new sections which better reflect the one true story of god and jesus and the other figures there.

Unlike other bibles it also contains The Tale of Jesus part III: Jesus comes to the Americas, and The Tale of Jesus part IV: Jehovah’s Witness Protection Program. It will also contain the cyberpunk futurism of Jesus Part V: The Newest Testament, and how Jesus came back yet again after coming back over and over again before, this time to inspire the hippies and various cults in California.

Regardless of the satirical tone of the work, it’s at least as accurate as any other bible- probably a lot more so. Jesus, after all, was basically an anarcho-communist necromancer with deep seated hatred for organized religion; which becomes evident when you observe the contradicting commands of Jesus and the latter-day Saul (or Paul) who turned Christianity into a violently bigoted, legalistic sect not unlike the baleful Roman cults of the day.

I’m not sure yet when it will be complete and I have a few publishers in mind who might like the work enough to potentially release it; if not it will be self published.

After the Ashes: Surviving the Coming Nuclear War

I’ve already written about this more recent work on other platforms, but I figured I should probably sum it up here as well if this is to be a dedicated literary site for my works.

In the past I’ve read somewhat apocalyptic material- most of it is prophetic and religious (“War’s End” by Wing Anderson comes to mind) or else is dedicated more to survival skills in a general sense without a necessary focus on recovering after a cataclysm that could very well endanger man as a species.

With that in mind I wrote “Ashes” much for the same reason I wrote the still-forthcoming “Fruits of Eden” for occult herbalism- as a sort of measured fusion of material on general subjects that for some reason was never fully synthesized. In the former case, a synthesis of survival strategies and post-apocalyptic philosophy, in the latter case a synthesis of how-to and encyclopedic content with historical context. In both cases a work specifically fulfilling this niche was lacking or at most unknown to myself.

“Ashes” then goes beyond simply proposing ways for an individual to survive and goes on to elaborate on how man can survive collectively- it contains both aspects because both, I judged, were equally important. It leaves the reader to determine how serious the content should be considered and whether to pursue the (often explicit) mentions of other material of worth in such a cataclysm, such as Seton’s work on woodcraft for its enormous amount of boy scout style content, or perhaps military guides or guides on basic medicine which might be of value. Instead of producing 500 pages of minutiae in the realm of survivalism (which has already been done and would thus be redundant) I instead focused mostly on philosophy and logically working through situations which may arise after a nuclear war has actually occurred.

I like to believe that the cover design also has a purpose- brightly colored and glossy so that it will not easily be lost amongst the ash and rubble after a nuclear situation has happened.

The tab to purchase this work (from its only central, official source) is on the side of this blog as with all others.

First Blog Post: Official Site For My Books

Three things have finally caused me to construct this blog (which will take some time that I could otherwise be spending writing more books, growing things, or otherwise increasing my ever-growing fan base.) Hereafter, this blog is to be considered the sole comprehensive site with links to my literary material- links posted offsite even on Amazon itself or other literary sites may very well involve third parties which were never authorized to sell my works.

First, I realized that overall demand for my literary materials- both things I myself have written as well as things I have edited which were out of copyright due to age (especially renaissance and enlightenment era grimoires) is higher than I expected (which is good) and growing over time (also a good thing, since I’m in this for the long haul.) I realized that while the occult is a popular topic that my somewhat apocalyptic works and blatant satire have also found their own niche audiences. I am appreciative towards everyone who has supported my work in whatever way they have done so, monetary or otherwise.

Second, I realized that unscrupulous sellers on Amazon and elsewhere have apparently grabbed some copies of my works and begun to sell them for exorbitant amounts- far higher than I myself listed them as. I refuse to allow some slimy web store which was never authorized to sell my material to compound the price, paying me nothing in return, without making it clear that I do not condone it; if a brick and mortar store wishes to sell copies of my work out of a physical store then I’m all for it, and I fully understand the manner of capitalism and the need for the physical work to thus be more expensive than my listing price. For the same store, however, to sell it on Amazon when my own works are there, fed into my own account, benefiting me and allowing me as the author or editor to control the cost, I feel a bit used. If you’re paying twenty dollars for a copy of “After the Ashes” or “Morbid Stories” then you’ve been taken for a ride unless you bought a physical copy from a physical store that you went to in person.

Third and finally, this is yet another platform on which I can advertize my work; for those who have been long-time fans of my various material (video, music, writing, and so forth, sprinkled with an ever present dose of gallows humor) perhaps you’d appreciate a page upon which all such work is amalgamated for ease of use, since some people appear not to realize just how massive the scope of the work is. I am not an author only, but also an archivist of occult material, as well as an experimental “musician” (which I don’t take too seriously) and I have seen interest in my content generally grow over time from a relatively small group of fans and supporters to a rather massive number of people connected with my workings, and those of others, such that it has finally come time to recognize that what started as a way to alleviate boredom on Youtube has become a sort of social calling.

I will continue my work in the extreme; in only a few short years all of this has come about, and I’m not going anywhere.

My editing skills on blogger are middling so it will take time to work out the proper format here, also.
