“Chaos was the law of nature. Order was the dream of man.” – Henry Adams
I constantly reflect upon ideas that come from my own inspiration and continue to be amazed about how beautiful and unique we are, while realizing, perhaps privately, that there are many more potential Luciferians out there who have not yet discovered their own path. I am convinced however that many more will follow in years to come.
I am excited to live these times in which I feel are the pioneer days of Luciferianism, and that the things we do together, will directly and positively impact on mankind in establishing the direction towards this unavoidable evolutionary step.
All change is painful; it will undoubtedly be painful for humanity to change at this fundamental level. In this time of transition, we will see much confusion, but already Luciferian ideology has become the very physical manifestation of something that enables limitless knowledge and limitless access to the collective mind.
Lucifer is no longer depicted as the devil; he has come back to our consciousness to bring us what we long for, resonating light and an end to ignorance, instead of allowing us to aim for the stars. In a few years, who will know where this will lead us?
The human mind seeks to create order out of Chaos, It is in the nature of humanity to attempt to formulate laws from experience as a guide to future action. Acting as a feedback-response mechanism, the mind considers the results of the previous behavior and creates laws of action in an attempt to repeat past good results and avoid bad results. In the individual this is known as the personality, in the communal world, it is known as science.
All scientific laws are false, science attempts to map the universe as a result of previous collective experience. Since this is limited to what has actually been experienced so far, it is always inadequate, and since it is not what has been experienced it is always human-centered.
It cannot be objective because the object does not experience, only the subject, humanity, experiences. Two approaches have been used to tackle this problem. The philosophy of the western world posits that an external, objective world interacts with us through scientific experiment, thus science creates objectively true laws. Other European philosophy holds, correctly in my opinion, that talk of objective reality is beyond experience and is thus meaningless babble.
Moreover, a scientific experiment is no more objective than a child's attempt to walk. To Know is not a high ideal, it is an instinct born of our particular way of survival, and is thus survival-centered. Science is our Elephant Trunk, our Giraffe Neck, and since it is inherently inadequate, it is a belief system, a set of interconnected ideas-about-things. In terms of European, Post-Hegelian philosophy, it is an ideology.
All ideologies are subject to chaotic dissolution, every ideology, whether science, Christianity, or whatever, seeks to and succeeds in creating a coherent view of reality that satisfies its believers. The problem is that there is inevitably a gulf between ideology and reality. Ideologies are fixed; reality is fluid. Thus all ideologies are subject to readjustment when a new discovery challenges the existing point of view.
The rediscovery of the Greek text of the New Testament and the discovery of the non-existence of the Ether each corroded the existing ideologies of their day. The Christian world responded with Reformation and Counter-Reformation.
Science responded with Einsteinium relativity. These new elements are Chaotic. The extent to which the ideology can reform depends on how deep the chaotic element bites into the ideological structure.
Every ideology has central tenets upon which the rest depend: so the discovery that Jesus was actually stoned to death rather than crucified would cause major rumblings; the discovery that he was a woman would cause deeper rumblings, but the discovery that he was a spaceman carrying out a standard sociological experiment would bring down the ideology in its entirety. Several ideologies have completely collapsed in the past, such as Ptolemaic astronomy, and it can happen again. Moreover, the spread of a unified ideology over the whole globe, Western Democracy, leaves the way open to a bigger collapse than ever before.
There is no such thing as innate value; all present Western ideologies depend upon a concept of innate worth, whereby certain things are automatically "better" than others. The White Race, Men, Adults, all have had their "innate" value knocked for six. Even the Animal Kingdom is no longer seen as of higher worth than the Vegetable as the spread of the Gaia hypothesis shows. This is the Chaotic element that can bring down a whole pack of cards. There is no ethical reference point, no beginning from which to derive an end to aim for, to praise, to work towards.
As is stated in the Liber Al; "let there be no difference made between one thing and another". The result is a confusion of belief as people scramble to find a new ideology.
Fundamentalists choose deliberate blindness and perverse stupidity. Thelemites choose "pure will, unassuaged of purpose". Chaos practitioners worship the confusion itself as the only "true thing" left. Pagans begin to construct a new ideology based on the absence of hierarchy and turn to cyclical and egalitarian beliefs. That a new ideology, or many, will arise is inevitable; even the truth of Chaos is only true to us, in our experience. But so what, all things considered, I think that things are going pretty well.
