the sexes: via bigrammaton to tetragrammaton

We don’t really sully ourselves with popular politics around here, since there’s already a plethora of articles from both sides of the fence out there. We’re dealing in stars, so the conversation necessarily has to anticipate the world hundreds of years from now. So while I will be attempting to lay out some pretty deep Tetragrammaton shit regarding gender issues, I’m going to try to avoid playing too much into the popular rhetoric of late, regarding transgender rights, the anti-feminism movements and so on. This thesis will be self-explanatory for anyone who wants to apply Mutational Alchemy ideas to their own take on current events.
       People who are not on board with Mutational Alchemy will not even begin to get any of this stuff, which is why this article is private, even though it addresses some fairly significant matters concerning a topic that is on the minds of almost everyone today. 
      Anyone who has read Aleister Crowley will understand the fight for women’s freedom is a fight for men’s freedom, so it’s just not necessary that I cater to the lowest common denominator that might actually think advocating for the rights of one demographic somehow takes away from the rights of another. It’s time for math, science and geometry. So if you’re straight and think this is somehow overstepping in the social justice arena, I can understand that but Mutational Alchemy gives us the tools to analyze a very turbulent subject with complete mathematical precision, and as usual, it turns out the progressives are absolutely right about some things…but not all.
      People have been asking me about the real gender sexes and bigrammaton for a little while now, and while all of the data is already right there in the bigrams, both ternary and binary, that will allow astute scholars to figure (at least some of) it all out; it seems I can never write enough words to assist in the task of unveiling what all of these charts and mirrors actually mean.

abrahadabra curriculum 2018 – sign up opens in january!


Below at the end of this announcement is a very short excerpt from the 1-1 module (one of seven modules/packets for the first year, accompanying nine books) More info is available in our Discord channel, listed below, or, on abrahadabra.com.
       This module, (1-1 AI Curric Welcome and Intro, Module I,) is only the “guide”to the other, more in-depth modules, so, it’s a summary, basically, of what we will be going through for the first 3 months. There is an enormous amount of written documentation for each reading assignment within the other modules, so it is a very intensive course. Third year students will be required to travel to The Abrahadabra Institute to pass some of the coursework and undergo initiation.  
      Please note, you must be a member of The Abrahadabra Institute, in good standing, to apply for this coursework. Registration opens in January. 
      You will be required to acquire your own textbooks. Some of them we can get at a discount from Princeton, and some are pretty cheap, digitally, while two are rather pricy. If you want all paper copies in great condition, the cost will run about $200, but most of that is two rare printings by Regardie and Crowley we’re trying to source inexpensively as we can, as the copyright is up in December for one of the pricier of the two.

Because it is legal, I am willing to create a PDF of it and hand it out for free, which means the book list would be more like $125, without any discounts from Princeton University Press or other publishers which could be very generous depending on how many people want to order new copies through us. 

Members can review the textbook list on the forums here: http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/thread/346/textbook-list-year-2018?page=1&scrollTo=1165

Goals

By the end of March, you should be able to build a hexagram using the method unique to The Abrahadabra Institute. You will also understand how to look up the hexagram once cast and analyze moving lines as well as rulers, and comprehend the overall meaning of the hexagram in synergy with your life circumstances.
      You will become familiarized with The Great Mystery, or Tai Hsuan Ching. You will memorize the basic traits of Yin, Yang and Jen by the end of the month. You will become familiarized with the Kama Sutra. You will become familiarized with the Qabbalistic Sephiroth, with the primary goal of memorizing the colors, names and placement of the individual Sephira on the Tree of Life by the end of the year.
      You will set up a permanent altar. You will begin to learn how to perform the TwinStar scrying meditation, using your magickal mirror. You will begin learning about and analyzing the work of Aleister Crowley, via his top student, Israel Regardie.
      It’s important that you cover the modules in the order given here, otherwise you’ll be missing important interlocking data that will allow you to smoothly progress.
      You’ll need to check in at least once a month on the forums under the Abrahadabra Academy section so we know you’re doing okay and not struggling with anything. You will be given posting assignments each month, but you can post as much as you like pertaining to the information in your modules. If you do have issues with anything you should contact us immediately. Below is our contact information:

Unpack everything and hang up the infochart poster (Labelled Adam Kadmon Tree with Four Elemental Worlds) where you practice or study. If this is not in the same place, hang it in the place where you study. Keep your books and supplies together in one place, preferably separate from other books on their own shelf, table, or in a container. This ritualistic pattern will set the tone for the years to come in which the benefits of ritual action is experienced firsthand, as underlined by Confucius, with externalized actions becoming internalized over time.
      Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 01 Basics (Bigrammaton) module I first. The Lo Shu, which the I Ching is based on, sets the stage for the work to follow. Follow any instructions presented. MAKE SURE you know the Lo Shu diagram and the elemental properties of Bigrams before beginning on the Trigrammaton module. If you need help, post on the forums, call, or email your instructor. Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 02 Advanced, first and follow all instructions at your own pace.
       Read rest of the modules in any order, but leave the Tantra module for last, as there are prerequisites in the other modules which may be useful. Follow any instructions presented. Try to familiarize yourself fairly well with the Sephiroth, (Tree of Life,) before you begin on the Tantra module. Some people will have already, or will be able to memorize the colors, names and locations of the Sephira within the first month, and this is desirable, however, if impossible due to personal time constraints it can be delayed until the end of the year. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t memorize them immediately, not everyone, even experienced occultists, have had time to dabble in Qabbalah, in addition to their other studies.

April

Goals

Become capable of performing a simple tarot reading for yourself and look up the card meanings online. You will be able to find the meaning of the different components of the card.
      Learn about the three aims of life espoused by Vatsyayana, PhD, and contemplate how you might integrate them into your own way of life. Begin learning about the vast history and foundational elements of the I Ching. Become acquainted with the concept of guru in the Eastern sense and the 729. Become introduced to the 81 Shou, and acquainted with the ternary and binary systems. Become familiar with the first chapter of the Book of the Law.

Instructions

Read through each of the packets individually and follow the instructions for the month. You may approach the packets in any order you wish, this month.

May

Goals

Continue your work with the I Ching, casting and reading a hexagram daily. Familiarize yourself with the history and implications of the I Ching that pertain directly to future Mutational Alchemy practice, such as the concept of Multiplicity from Nothing, as well as the idea that Hexagrams symbolize a forcefield. Examine the nature of a successful lover, their talents and abilities, and nature of Mankind’s sexuality itself. Become even more familiar with the concept of the 729 and its importance to Mutational Alchemy. Become introduced to the concept of interaction with other dimensional worlds, from the point of view of various cultures. Explore the initial underlying precepts of the concept of “raising the foundation”

Instructions

Start with Tetragrammaton 01 Basics, then Hermeticism paying special attention to the coordinates and attributes of Yesod and Da’ath on the Tree of Life, then Tantra. After this, study the Tetragrammaton Advanced module and finally, Hierophantic studies.

June

Goals

dna and the i ching

!dif01

 

The first person to publish their findings on the connection between the I Ching and the DNA genetic code was Harvey Bialy. In his paper, “The I Ching and the Genetic Code” (1974) he states that Yin and Yang were synonymous with purines and pyrimidines, the two kinds of molecules working in interplay in the DNA system.  He also goes on to provide reasonable assumptions on which base corresponds to each value: adenine, guanine, cytosine and thymine.

memberships now open…

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.



Annual Membership card, certificate of membership, lapel pin, mission statement premise print $32

Annual Membership + Mutational Alchemy Tarot $64

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 Alchemical Word of Perfection by m1thr0s 729

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.

m1thr0s, Magister Ouroboros 729, founder of The Abrahadabra Institute and creator of Mutational Alchemy the so-called *Ninth Limb of Yoga*

      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.

book review: ouroboros; a grimoire by ray sherwin, father of chaos magick, reads like true detective

The announcement for Ouroboros; A Grimoire by Ray Sherwin showed up on r/occult and I went ahead and read the preview. I instantly took a liking to it, so I ordered it.
      Like a complete idiot I didn’t even notice the name matched an individual we had been talking about in a podcast last year on Chaos Magick linked here. When it arrived I unwrapped it to find a wide, slender shiny white floppy book, 110 pages long, emblazoned with a bright, turquoise ouroboros painting by his consort Lorraine Sherwin, and archaic mauve script. I flipped it over to find some handsome looking wizard from Florida or something (there are palm trees and he’s probably shirtless) staring at me with a beard I approved of. At this point, obviously I still had no idea who this was – the founder of Chaos Magick. I’m not sure why they have palm trees in England, but there they are. 
       I admit this is the first book about Chaos Magick that I have read that has held my interest, that probably isn’t saying much since I have never actually purchased a book on Chaos Magick, and they’re rare in libraries. But my standards are very high for what goes on certain shelves in my library, and this is going on the special shelf.  
      It reads as a proclamation of Zeus chastising his kids. The man is very funny, and I admit somewhat charming even as he’s cutting heads off of pedophiles and other perverts. It can’t be too easy tearing down one’s own seed, but, he does it. No one is ever going to look at Peter Carroll again the same way, I can tell you that.

“The order’s evident requirement for its members to take in less of macrocosm is a disgrace akin to a child hiding under the bedclothes in the belief that if the child can’t see the monster, the monster can’t see the child.”

– Ray Sherwin

The roasting of the Illuminates of Thanateros is completely satisfying, even though I barely knew who these people were, except that one of them was a snot-nosed idiot on the original (defunct) occultforums called Ralph Tegtmeier (Frater U∴D∴) aka Helmut. We all seriously regarded this guy as some kind of mentally ill teenage troll at the time. m1thr0s 729 was slamming the guy in some rather amusing ways as m1thr0s tended to do to idiots, and at the point in time it happened, it was akin to some kind of Klingon mating ritual for each other from the perspective of our Aquarian and Gemini sensibilities. We both quickly forgot about this moron. He was possibly the most idiotic troll to ever pass through that old occult haunting ground and I saw hundreds rise and fall there. and neither of us was aware that he was a high ranking mucky muck in an organization widely considered to be quite serious.  
      Peter Carroll – whom I have never read anything about either, except his date and place of birth, nor any of his publications, also comes off sounding like a complete piece of shit, which was fascinating. All in all a good and satisfying romp through the castle of occult intrigue and conspiracy. Sherwin isn’t the first to speak up. The blog of Nathaniel J. Harris which has been covering the case in detail, writes:

“There is a paedophile ring operating within the Pagan / occult community, with a particular concentration in the West Country where we have already seen 7 successful prosecutions, with many others remaining at large.[…]Most recently Peter J. Carroll has been spreading the vilest lies imaginable in a vain attempt to discredit Nathaniel. This is because Mr. Carroll knows full well that members of his fan club, the Illuminates of Thanateros, were involved in the sadistic abuse of my son.”

We had briefly covered some rumors within r/occult in a Abrahadabra Radio podcast in episode 006 about a disagreement between an individual shifting between a variety of throwaway accounts who had accused an IAO131 of defending a pedophile ring, which turned into a discussion about general possibilities of pedophilia within the occult community. While IAO131 is basically cat vomit who found himself on the heavy end of a ban hammer for being a stupid shitler about the origins of the word “magick” of all goddamned things on Abrahadabra Forums, I am not, and m1thr0s 729 was not the type to deviate from the sacred American axiom “Innocent until proven guilty.” (By the way, IAO131 was wrong about magick’s etymology, good old Oxford Dictionary vindicated us – he never fucking apologized for his hurfblurfing while m1 was alive, so he gets the hose. Again.)
      Sherwin goes further than we ever did in that podcast, indicating that the defensiveness of the Satanic organizations is extremely suspect, up to and including the OTO, apparently. I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the OTO most of the time, but when it comes to ruining the occult for everyone else with borderline pedophilia accusations, there is a real reason to declare some kind of war within our own sub-society against anything that reeks of defending or participating in any kind of fascist sexuality such as child molestation.
       Some of the passages reminded me of my own time with the FBI in the Nuit House, which I won’t go into here due to the fact it might tip off any CP cells to their methodology. The embarrassments of Manson, Hubbard, and more recently, the Kabbalah Center in New Yok, never go away and the government is (rightly) dead set on never having to deal with these grotesque pockmarks on the face of Western Civilization. Anyone who has played a game of Civilization knows the power of protecting culture. Every occult organization past a certain point gets the big brother treatment these day…and people like the ones discussed in this book are why we all deserve it.
      Suffice it to say, the mere fact that I’m pretty much a 1950’s housewife disguised as an occultist, and m1thr0s was either glued to me or his laptop was enough to pretty much placate our spies, although we had more than a few creeps show up on our doorstep who were part of the other side of the “conspiracy”, although I could do nothing about it but call the police and let them decide. 
       I found myself completely fascinated by this man who seemed to be speaking from an asana of actual power throughout the book. Most occult authors just bore me to tears, and as an ENTJ I can be a cold heartless bitch not only on my brutal Reddit posts, but when it comes to dismissing occult authors, I’m not going to mince words. My bookshelf is full of texts from Oxford, Princeton and Chicago University – these are my occult tomes, a habit I inherited from my middle school years when I only read non-fiction science books.  
      I know with absolute confidence everyone in the occult is going to like this book – even the old school witches. A British author who was born in the legendary lands of Merlin and has the Druid look is like finding a leprechaun for these Wiccan shits.
      The text has the same feel as a few other rare occult texts, such as those of Masaaki Hatsumi, Aleister Crowly, the Corpus Hermetica, and the Kybalion. The author seems at times to be speaking right at us, or interacting with us on a personal level. I sometimes call these types of texts holographic texts, as they seem to shift with the reader as the mind positions itself around the data. 
       Sherwin attacks everything from democracy to priesthoods, to death and archaeology. We always love a good rant at Abrahadabra of course, and this continues for nearly fifty pages… 
      After this, we find a link to a YouTube video, which is the audio-visual version of a poem inserted in the book. It’s worth it to get through to the end. 

This is the individual who launched an entire generation of new thinking in magick, influencing some of the most famous individuals in pop culture.
      There are no dumbass sigils here, nor the same tired nihilistic or iconoclastic dogma of much Chaos thought. Sherwin, for all intents and purposes appears to be reasserting what his vision of Chaos Magick was all those years ago in London, before Carroll drove it into the hands of the worst kinds of thugs and evildoers, apparently.  
     The book is badass. You won’t be disappointed. It has everything that makes for an occult classic – a wizard war (more like the complete annihilation of a long-standing chaos magick guru) Defcon 5 level True Detective intrigue that will make the Temple of Set/Aquino rumors look like tidy Sunday gossip, and a way of teaching magick that is completely new. And, fucking finally, someone else talking about the goddamned environmental problems the world is facing.
     This first edition is limited to 500 copies, so you’d better act fast if you’re going to acquire a copy. The fallout from this is going to spread across the entire world of Chaos Magick and the occult itself.
