m1thr0s [July 17, 2013 – 4:52 am]: It used to bug me more than it does now. I used to say things like *those who call us *thelemites* are liable to catch a brick across their teeth!* because i really cannot condone the whole *simon-says* approach to Completion. it creates unnecessary obstacles…more useless cliques shoving their embarrassing brand of self-righteousness at the rest of us…some very hard-working people who can never seem to get a word in edgewise for all the carnival hype surrounding the latest esoteric *fad* etc. But like I said – it’s a numbers game and these things will be the way they are whether it upsets me personally or not. best to take it all in stride and keep on pumping out the jams…
GratefulGuest [July 17, 2013 – 11:40 am]: I think I understand what you mean. I do apologize if appropriate here. I find this website as really practical. I certainly have found working with this formula of TwinStar to be very very beneficial to myself personally. I definitely see how this has a very sustainable significance and long trajectory for the elevation of humanity. I did a tarot reading for myself recently and…
GratefulGuest [July 17, 2013 – 11:43 am]: …it was more than anything indicicative of the The Hermit. Connecting with AI via this web portal is great for me, as I am in this phase of sort of Hermitting and percolating over these and other concepts on a very individualized basis. I do entirely understand what you are referring to with things often being perceived or treated as a sort of “fad”. As things such TwinStar, and other… [read more…]
Memberships are now available to the world’s foremost experts on Abrahadabra and the central hub for Mutational Alchemy, the legendary ninth limb of Yoga. The chart below is a quick and dirty synopsis of what we are all about.
For a number of years now, those following The Abrahadabra Institute’s activities over the past 18 years have asked us for official memberships. After a tremendous amount of work having been completed, towards formulating what such a membership might look like, in order to suit the needs of persons interested, we’ve come to the conclusion that the best direction for TAI, much to our founder’s chagrin, is as an educational institution and (co-ed) fraternity – for the purposes of social fun, and thirdly as an initiation gateway into the 418 current. Anything that dares to connect itself with Abrahadabra is necessarily signing up for a rough and fast-paced ride, and we have hitched our wagon to that particular train a long, long time ago. This is certainly optional. Abrahadabra loves loners – our clan consists of the Hermits and the Magus. They don’t need a group. But the path can be lonely and we’re willing to take the heat in representing the 418 current in this world. If you want to join us, fine. If not, we still respect you just as much, fam.
A significant investment of time has been dedicated towards composing a seven year long (open source) curriculum, leading into Mutational Alchemy. We are using an introduction to this steep climb via the foundational elements we had identified over five years ago, and we are very pleased to announce that The Abrahadabra Institute is finally, after all these years, ready to take on the stewardship of a formal membership body.
Almost everyone human with a pulse is welcome to join. While it’s true that we are open to just about everybody, it is not a decision to take lightly. This stuff that we study here is as real as anything, extremely potent, and we can’t be held responsible for the fallout if one joins frivolously and tries to make Abrahadabra some kind of joke or subject to one’s Will. Below is a link to the comprehensive guide to membership. also on the menu to the left “join TAI.”
The above link will answer most pressing questions, but it doesn’t cover all of them. Those who wish to ask questions of us directly should visit the public area of the forums, here: http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/board/64/pubbies-live and create a new thread or post in the existing Q & A.
This organization is designed to endure for at least a thousand years, depending on circumstances surrounding success towards the Aeon of Hrumachis as defined by Liber al vel Legis. If that sounds like something you are interested in building, we are open to studious, intelligent, patient, dedicated and self-controlled individuals.
Any post about opening up memberships to The Abrahadabra Institute would be incomplete without mentioning our founder, who died on December 26th 2016, and who was pushing hard to stay alive for as long as it took to stabilize this body of work and TAI itself, with the intention that I could continue where he left off. The future is going to be a lot of fun here at TAI and you’re not going to want to miss it.
I’ve been advised by the Secret Chiefs ;) to release this small portion (2 out of 16 pages) of the introduction to Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light ahead of time. This work will be released as a series of volumes. The work is not completed yet, though a huge portion of it has been completed and we’re running way ahead of schedule. It will take some time before it is necessary to complete it. I have not been given a publication schedule yet and I am not allowed to know any other details yet when that date will be set. – Izi
Introduction to Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light by m1thr0s (Copyright The Abrahadabra Institute)
The manual that follows is unique and mysterious. There is nothing like it anywhere in the world, or I would not be compiling it at this time. Its subject matter is so austere and people so apparently oblivious of its principles that I had long ago resigned myself to unraveling its mysteries on my own initiative. There has always seemed to me to be very little point in attempting to solicit any support for this work, since it has been my experience that the very same people and institutions who are the first to tout the importance of new ideas are also the first to undermine them. Finding no organizations I could form any useful alliance with anyway, I resolved that any sufficiently important body of original metaphysical research would have little choice but to evolve by stealth. I have subsequently contented myself with being a free agent exploring a noble model on its own merits, with no social obligations attached. The situation has changed. Even the remotest of mystics cannot always remain aloof from the troubles that plague his world. Economic opportunism has accrued unprecedented wealth and power through the routine plundering of anything in its path. Suddenly it finds itself caught in a cowardly dilemma – what once seemed only a casual coincidence turns out to be an embedded truth: its very continuance altogether depends upon artificially induced strife and suffering. Corporate thugs are normally a rather stupid lot who until recently never fully appreciated the game they were playing and have only rarely enjoyed the carte blanche sanction of government. With the help of hired tutors they have finally figured it all out so that the economics of disaster are suddenly being perpetrated everywhere with extreme deliberation. Since the 1970’s alone roughly one third of all wildlife on Earth has been pushed to extinction with human populations falling hard on its heels, including whole nations and many millions of people. Synchronous to this stepped-up onslaught against non-essential life forms everywhere has come the systematic dismantling of individual rights and freedoms – the one thing they seem to fear above all others. Armageddon is upon us here and now and its architects are engineering it from the highest levels on down. In the face of this long anticipated evil we are left stunned and disbelieving, while a callous criminal elite pursues its genocidal agenda with murderous precision. I needn’t invent such facts as these. No sane person would believe them if I did. It appears that the story of humankind’s inalienable birthright must be told sooner than later, whether people are ready to hear it or not. I am, in many respects, reticent to reveal it in advance of its perfected mastery, though it is physically impossible to exploit it for foul purposes. If I do not disclose these facts, there exists a very real possibility that they will fail to be understood in time to make a positive difference of any kind. I also appreciate that many people have been haphazardly seeking out this cosmological master key without necessarily understanding its form. This creates an additional incentive for me to come forward, since I have always felt that a subject matter of this magnitude should be dealt with by as many good minds as could be drawn into it and not be left to be sorted out in tortured isolation. Although it has been the habit of Hermetic Alchemists to keep their esoteric secrets to themselves, there comes a time when even reasonable habits must give way to other prudence. We have entered into the Information Age carrying a great deal of excess baggage.There are players in this drama who have dug their heels in hard against any prospect of conscious evolution, who would (if they could) usher in a great Dark Age instead. In the face of such insidious aggressions, an enhanced self-awareness is inevitably one’s best (and perhaps only) possible defense. It would be an easy matter for me to play to the popular media in ways it both expects and (more often) demands. I could easily claim to have received the following cosmological blueprint in a dream or a vision or via some alien intelligence from a distant galaxy or any one of a thousand other childish scenarios aimed at bolstering my credibility with those who are unable or unwilling to scrutinize ideas according to their intrinsic merits. There would even be a certain amount of truth in this since I have drawn to powerful spiritual forces in the development of this technology that have almost certainly assisted me in unseen ways. But the bottom line is that what I have arrived at I have arrived at the hard way, through asking a lot of very difficult questions and insisting upon their answers, by taking the risks that needed to be taken and adhering to the rules that needed to be adhered to. The end result is a model of transcendent reality that hides from nothing and has no fear of being scrutinized, built upon falsifiable proofs where other models are built upon hearsay and hand-me-down traditions long ago stripped clean of anything so menial as deductive reasoning. While the star-theory of human evolutionary potential has actually been with us for a very long time (albeit masked in diverse ways), there has never been a comprehensive accounting of the anatomical properties that could render this anything more than a metaphorical allusion. This manual plugs that fatal gap and goes on to outline a concise methodology of star-body distillation and assimilation. Its value will not diminish over time and no other teaching on earth trumps it. It lays out a comprehensive visualization technique for realizing the Body of Light at levels never before attempted in such a comprehensive manner. It defines what the human *star* is and how it can be brought to bear in human experience on a daily basis. It affords all human beings a tangible model of perfection, which can be seized upon both intellectually and physically. It provides a detailed systemic for analyzing and simulating that supreme perfection, such that all rational people will have some concrete way of confronting it devoid of internal contradictions. It combines *right thinking* with *right action* to such a high degree that it will at first seem utterly impossible to achieve, yet over time will be seen to be so profoundly accessible as to completely overwhelm all other concerns and hesitations. It is a form of meditation principle and practice expressly tailored to the here-and-now, whose immediate relevance to the human condition can be expected to last indefinitely. The model presented in this manual is not in conflict; neither with itself nor any other viable reality construct of any kind. Its task is to define humankind on a universal scale and nothing less. It will eventually be vindicated as the Philosopher’s Stone, a direct emanation of the wisdom of antiquity come full circle into the present to pave a solid pathway to the future of humankind. Its parallels are identifiable everywhere one might happen to look, yet nowhere is its exact form anywhere to be found. It is the product – not only of a single lifetime – but many generations of intensive self-inspection, stretching all the way back to the roots of civilization, as we know it. It amounts to an expert distillation of the world’s store of esoteric wisdom. It requires no specialized belief system to explore its tenets and is inherently opposed to none.
Ed Note: Aspie types will notice the quote in the picture above which I created for this article is from Liber Tzaddi, but is “misquoted”. It is actually very close to the original text before an editor “corrected” the original. m1thr0s found this to be quite poor form as articles in Class A are never to be altered by human hands and may only be altered through direct contact with a member of A.’.A.’. so high in stature they may be considered beyond the comprehension of even adepts. I could not even locate the original version as I was unclear if it was in the Grady McMurtry reprint of The Holy Books of Thelema called “ΘΕΛΗΜΑ” but I went ahead and altered it by connecting to source – if you are in possession of the original Crowley or McMurtry printing please touch base at email@example.com.

In the occult so many times people talk about gods and goddesses casually without truly addressing the fundamentals of what they are. This leads to a wide range of faulty assumptions which are slowly adopted as facts. In many cases it is fair to say that these faulty assumptions have been venerated as fact in a number of “mainstream” occult circles for generations. Although “mainstream occult” may seem to be an oxymoron, by this I mean generalized Wicca, general Paganism encompassing all of its various cultural flavors as they are practiced by outsiders to that culture, some of which are now extinct in their native lands. It also includes general independent Ceremonial Magick users, Chaos Magicians to some extent (although the fault here usually lies with their underestimation of what the entities are and not so much with naive awe or anthropomorpizations.) Finally I would be remiss to not mention the plethora of tea party Thelemites, nearly all of them who eschew Abrahadabra, Nuit (Nwt) or the twingod Hermes phoenix of “Had-Ra Hoor Khut” in favor of some substitute such as Isis, Pan, Dionysus, Zeus, Thor or other such typical pagan praxis. Much meaning and circumstantial evidence is projected onto their favorite cartoon character until they have convinced themselves that this abominable and degraded creation is what magick is all about. These people are useless assholes. The anthropological data can be useful in certain cases, though even amongst the ancients the figures became greatly degraded (For example the Greek Athena to the Roman Diana as noted by Aleister Crowley The Book of Thoth). Modern opinions can be useful. It depends on who is doing the talking. Always be very careful about what you read and be sure at least that the writer seems sincere if examining magickal texts rather than anthropological ones. There is a morbid obsession with *contracts* in our society, especially with the so-called *Devil*. I think there is a kind of truth behind the idea of binding agreements, but most people have such a comical idea of them that it comes off as silly. In classical Indian theology the choice of ishta dev is no choice at all, at least beyond some kind of event horizon of the free will. The doctrine of the Mahabharata suggests that when it comes to deity, our first *willful* choice is a permanent one. It fails to tell us when this choice is made, or if it can ever be changed. Furthermore, there is nothing in the text to explain how one can know if such a thing has occurred. In an eternity it is nigh fucking impossible to pinpoint exact dates and symptoms that lead to one’s current position. Bardon warned against creating any kind of contracts with spirits. Yet what if there is a part of our soul traded in for the little everyday choices? Eventually this leads to a kind of surrender to forces which have nothing good in store for the rest of the world that dares oppose its vileness. We only need to point to the gross abuses of global capitalism unfettered by morality, the military industrial complex, or the manipulative banking system. All of these things are ok in moderation when their leaders heads are properly screwed on but we have far past the point where the greedy gave a damn about anyone else. In the interim of a true encounter with the Great Beyond, great misunderstanding of what the Gods and Goddesses are can create serious problems. They can also lead to bad alliances that run contrary to Will itself, a dangerous situation for those few who carry the responsibility of furthering Abrahadabra in this world. Let me explain to you the way Abrahadabra views deity.
Fundamentally, the Gods and Goddesses are consciousness nodes. The Body of Light is seated in the medium of consciousness. We can create an analogy in looking to oceanic life. Cetaceans transmit and recieve soundwaves through their foreheads, constituting the language of dolphins and whales. Now this language causes reactions, but imagine it could create very strong reactions. Imagine instead of sound, the waves were made of thought itself, and instead of travelling through water or air like a mechanical wave, it travelled similar to James Maxwells’ electromagnetic waves discovered in the late 19th century, able to pass through the vacuum of space. (We’re not going to assume they are electromagnetic waves however) We’re used to the idea of words urging people on to action. A few careless words can start a bar fight or a snappy slogan can move people to passionate action. Let’s imagine that these unknown waves containing unknown information encrypted in an unknown way were travelling through space faster than light, and that they could evoke feelings and provoke action in such a powerful way that we were powerless to stop ourselves. Then, going a little further, let’s imagine these waves couldn’t be detected, that no one even knew they existed, and that they could not be measured with modern technology. Let’s also assume that the mechanism for the creation and reception of these soundwaves, moving through gas, liquid, solid and vacuum as if it were all the same, wasn’t even recognized by mankind and the research on it had stopped thousands of years ago with the decay of the discipline of Spiritual Alchemy. This phenomenon and these mechanics do exist, they are real, and it is the nature of the Body of Light and the vast network of consciousness. Individuals like Rupert Sheldrake, Phillip John and Darold Treffert could one day be remembered as pioneers in the field. But given the recent cascade of events humanity will most likely take a darker path, which would necessitate a schism in the species between those who can manipulate thought and those who cannot: Homo sapiens sapiens, naive and oblivious *slave race* to Homo sapiens astralis. The Kings and Queens of the Earth are real. We are playing *slave* to the slaves most of the time here on Earth and this fundamentally has to change. I believe this is what is meant by the talk of slaves and the serpent’s “few and secret” servants in the Book of the Law. People think this sounds crazy. But when did the opinion of people ever matter when you can control their thoughts, actions and decisions? People are just a backdrop to an important reality that cannot be ignored by those privileged enough to know. This privilege has been granted to them by Nature himself, and cannot be made to bow to false ideology or the whining of entitled yet powerless ideologists. I am appealing to the royalty of Earth here. You know that the world is wrong and completely on its head as far as magick or the occult goes. It’s no secret that most occultists are poor or suffer hardship in some way despite their amazing talents. Ask yourself if your “Gods” might be lying to you. A few simple parlor tricks are nothing compared to the incredible power and majesty of the TwinStar. It’s machinations are elegant, effective, completely just, pure and righteous. And it has the capacity to fulfill every desire and whim that you long for from worship of *pagan* Gods. It eats *falsehoods* for breakfast and it can utterly destroy *mogu* (for lack of a better term – I borrowed this word from World of Warcraft lore because it so aptly describes the dangers of overemphasizing dogma, obsession, blind hatred and arrogance)
“The Many is as adorable to the One as the One is to the Many. This is the Love of These; creation-parturition is the Bliss of the One; coition-dissolution is the Bliss of the Many. The All, thus interwoven of These, is Bliss. Naught is beyond Bliss. “
The Book of Lies: The Oyster by Aleister Crowley
“Let it be that state of manyhood bound and loathing. So with thy all; thou hast no right but to do thy will.”
The Book of the Law 1:42 (Nuit)
In this set of quotes we have two definitions of the Many: first as something that is bound (possibly due to corruption) and secondly where that Many is adored and bathed in the bliss of mutual Love between the One and the Many. This relationship is the foundation of the standard “There is No God but Man”, meaning, they are intertwined. The idea of a far away, and lofty God, out of reach, must be obliterated and in order to become a successful Magus, we must be able to recognize and tap into the true “One” who states adamantly: “I am alone: there is no God where I am” (2:23 Liber al vel Legis.) If the One defines him/herself as *not God* then that leaves us with the Many. What this indicates is that God him/herself is actually the multitude, and that by rising above the masses to become divine, we unite with the one and thus master this principle, becoming the active flux instead of the passive, able to direct the masses as we will. It is for this reason that we suspect God is actually female. In fact we have a clue to this, not only in the status and power of Nuit, but in the name of YHVH, when calculated in the binary, the name is revealed as female. Misunderstand *ONE* as God and *Man* as some pitiful creature crawling about in the mud just leaves you with an extremely ill-dignified bunch of monkeys and a righteously pissed off *ONE*. A Man, the Jen principle, seated between Yin and Yang is intended for either position, but our goal as the Magus is to become ONE, *The King* or *Queen* (as you prefer), – the one is seated within the heart of every Star. At that point, your Will is not only the Law, it’s the only activity you have a right to perform. The many may do as they can, but they are bound by the restriction they impose upon themselves, and they are slaves. What if the sun is conscious? Humans have acknowledged the sun as a consciousness since time immemorial. It doesn’t speak English without some adjustments but they felt the connection to the divine through our stars above and beyond their warmth or beauty. Per The Abrahadabra Institute which believes that “Every Man and Every Woman is a Star” and are correctly classified as *A Consciousness Stars*. Gods, goddesses and various “spirits” archetypes, daemons and so on are parts of this natural enviroment. Like the components of a computer, some of them are hard drives, repositories for data. Others are GPU’s, concentrating on manifesting spectacular beauty. The so-called demons, regarded as wrathful deities in the East, are misunderstood functions of consciousness. This isn’t to say that things like *viruses* don’t exist in consciousness, but they can never threaten consciousness itself, only temporarily cause pain born out of ignorance. It may be that we are in a complex virtual reality, but this theory could be arising out of a misunderstanding of Abrahadabra by modern and primitive human science. It wouldn’t come as a surprise that a biased academia has been approaching Abrahadabra so ass-backwards that it has been examining the iceberg with a magnifying glass. Our bodies may reside in physical space but it is consciousness which has taken control of and animated the element of earth, our material universe. *The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs*.
We need not wait for Science to catch up with consciousness. We can use it right away, in fact we already have the technology. The gods, goddesses, demons, devils, angels and other *daemons* of Heaven, Earth and the Hells are part of our inheritance as *stars* and should be regarded as no more forbidden than a piece of advanced technology. I will warn any occultist that they are not pets nor are they easy to access, control or bend to one’s Will. They are only as useful and powerful as you are as a matter of fact, and you are not the only mind accessing them. Remember this and you will go far with this work. As for the conspiracy of silence in the scientific community surrounding this type of phenomena it is best to cultivate a record of personal experience. Take note when remarkable things happen and build on that to create even more amazing successes so that when the talking heads rail and rant that it is merely coincidence or delusion or confirmation bias you may have certainty, and with it a power they can never claim themselves, therefore a power they can never trace, stop or harangue.

There’s no time like the present to engage with reality so I went ahead and posted it per his request.
Cave biologist Dr. Jean Krejca has announced a recently discovered and previously unknown species of rare millipede living in a cave system in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range in California. The millipede is poisonous and boasts 414 legs with an additional four legs turned-penis via evolutionary mutation. With the addition of the four penises this totals 418 appendages altogether, making it one of the most significantly Abrahadabra-esque creatures in the world. The sacred word of the Nu Aeon, Abrahadabra equals 418 in the Gematria of AIQ BKR, the Qabbalah of the Nine Chambers. The four modified leg-penises would signify the four elements symbologically speaking. Its special connection to Hermits also outlines another correlation in the habitat of the species, a cave system. As well as this caves were regarded as entrances to the underworld, and its denizens the messengers of the cthonic gods.
The discovery echoes as a herald of special significance to those who recognize it as a manifestation of “Hell’s Own Worm” as Aleister Crowley put it.
Thankfully the location of the new millipede has been kept a secret, which ensures it will be protected from curiosity seekers and amateur explorers who would decimate its fragile habitat. Just enjoy a nice Sierra Nevada ale instead and enjoy the thought that this little guy is out there somewhere in the world being bafflingly mysterious. Omnia Exteunt in Mysterium.
