Transhumanism and the Dark Arts

Magick helps to re-member immanence in all entities through learning to exercise modes of sensation that have become dormant. Of central importance to the practice of magick is taking eros seriously while expanding awareness beyond the human to the other-than-human. Such sensory experiences and relationships serve to recover the concrete from the dominance of the abstract, eros from the dominance of rationality, the material from the dominance of the ideational, and the natural from the dominance of culture.

True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon. For this reason, a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave.

The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire. Its less complex and more universal form is human selfishness, for selfishness is the fundamental cause of all worldly evil. A man will barter his eternal soul for temporal power, and down through the ages, a mysterious process has been evolved which actually enables him to make this exchange.

In its various branches, the dark art includes nearly all forms of ceremonial magic, necromancy, witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism. Under the same general heading are also included mesmerism and hypnotism, except when used solely for medical purposes, and even then there is an element of risk for all concerned. We are now throwing Transhumanism into the mix just for good measure.

As I have often said, there is a war for your soul... Many a magician has lost his life as the result of opening a way whereby sub-mundane creatures could become active participants in his affairs.

The true knowledge of the Sacred Sciences of the Soul and mechanics of human multidimensional consciousness have been obliterated from record and conveniently mind controlled out from the majority of sciences.

As a result, the trend toward trans-humanism has really come to the forefront. The next necessary step for humanity is the transcendence to a brand new species.

This new race of completely evolved superior humans is the inevitable next phase of evolution. This transition to the Übermensche is humanity’s way of choosing for itself, in the face of annihilation, to become something so profoundly superior to the current human state, that human DNA will literally adapt itself to accommodate the change. This change will take place with the assistance of technology, science, and surprisingly enough, the dark arts.

Transhumanism is a philosophical and cultural position that encourages human advancement through technology. More specifically, transhumanism encourages the use of artificial enhancements to push mankind toward something “more than” human. Fundamentally, it is a form of Utopianism, the belief that human beings can change themselves and create a heaven on earth. Transhumanism is the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science, technology, or pure magick.

Transhumanism is a mission that attempts to negate or bypass “God” and ultimately cheat death. This is the “immortal agenda”. It is ritual black magick, under the guise of “ancient mystery and knowledge” intended to produce specific results. In the case of transhumanism, the desired result is to annihilate God, raise up Lucifer in his place, and live forever on the earth as gods under Lucifer’s rule.

Transhumanism is a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase.

Many transhumanists wish to follow life paths which would, sooner or later, require growing into posthuman persons: they yearn to reach intellectual heights as far above any current human genius as humans are above other primates; to be resistant to disease and impervious to aging; to have unlimited youth and vigor; to exercise control over their own desires, moods, and mental states; to be able to avoid feeling tired, hateful, or irritated about petty things; to have an increased capacity for pleasure, love, artistic appreciation, and serenity; to experience novel states of consciousness that current human brains cannot access. It seems likely that the simple fact of living an indefinitely long, healthy, active life would take anyone to post-humanity if they went on accumulating memories, skills, and intelligence.

To adopt a philosophy which says that someday everyone ought to have the chance to grow beyond present human limits is clearly not to say that one is better or somehow currently “more advanced” than one’s fellow humans.

Transhumanism is not about a fancier car, more money, or clever gadgetry; transhumanism is about genuine changes to the human condition, including increased intelligence and minds better suited to the achievement of happiness.
