I simply could not resist the reckless self-indulgence of kicking off the second piece of this series with Ayn Rand. (The first installment is viewable here.) Anyone who joins TAI will be expected to be interested in philosophy – any philosophy – and while my personal preference is for an enormous range of philosophers ranging from Pythagoras to Thomas Jefferson. I don’t really care what kind of philosophy our students and members like, as long as they have some kind of philosophy. Ayn Rand just has a special place in my heart as the most polarizing individual in my repertoire of knowledge. No one causes an irrational emotional meltdown quite as spectacularly Ayn Rand, this is probably one of her most endearing qualities. Just drop her name in any social circle and watch the fallout.
Yet, she also has some things to say about our Nu Aeon that support the ideas Thelemites and Liber al Vel Legis aficionados hold dear regarding the imagined and perceived reign of Ra Hoor Khut. RHK is experienced as coming from within our own Body of Light, centering at the solar plexus and is felt along the arms during gnosis. “I am the strength and force of your arms” he says. This area of the Body of Light is connected with the chakra known to facilitate carving out dominion, and Ayn Rand has plenty to say about dominion and will. While she is coming at it from a very earthly perspective, this is exactly the kind of down to earth objective-reality espresso shot most occultists need these days – not the subjective “everything will unfold as it should” crap that you hear spouted off to anyone who will listen. Ra Hoor Khut himself defines himself, first and foremost, as a God of War and of Vengeance. He’s not going to be inspiring us to turn the other cheek and be our brother’s keeper, as the previous aeon was defined, unless that keeping includes socking them in the jaw for their bullshit.
People are going to have to learn to change their own godamned diapers in this aeon, mark my words. We’ve got a lot of serious threats breathing down our neck here, from the antibiotic crisis coupled with the return of ebola and the plague in Africa, to the fallout of what is the largest extinction since the Permian. The world is not going to be saved by niceness, it’s going to be saved by what we refer to, and what the ancient Chinese referred to, as *right thinking* and *right action*. But what is *right thinking* and more importantly, what is the most pressing matter we must attend to if we are to survive and thrive in our Nu Aeon environment, the so-called “Age of War and Science?” [Continue Reading (Members Only)]

I have re-released the Da’ath Hack article in order to assist new members inexperienced with any form of banishing technique.
One of the distinguishing characteristics of Mutational Alchemy is the manner in which the Tree of Life is positioned with respect to the magickal formula of Abrahadabra, often referred to as the Abrahadabra Grid (shown above). Rather than treating Abrahadabra as internal to the Tree of Life, Mutational Alchemy approaches the Tree as a mathematical subset of Abrahadabra itself, which we take to be (in some auspicious way) revealing of Stars. Our reasons for doing this are in all cases rooted in demonstrable proofs of profound significance so that no one needs accept this strategy on any other basis. We do not claim that some mysterious entity from another dimension has informed us of this. We do not rely upon anything other than relentless deductive reasoning to assert it. We are more interested in falsifiable truth than enigmatic revelation, which (in any case) is subject to personal interpretation minus the safeguard of logical checks and balances. It is the road less taken concerning Abrahadabra and thus holds out the highest possibility of success defining Stars in any kind of rational relationship to Trees. For a modern qabbalist to assert that “Every man and every woman is a Tree.” is in no sense surprising since, much like the Ayurvedic chakras, the Tree of Life is (from its inception) a kind of esoteric mapping of humankind itself viewed from a particular cosmological lens. The traditional view is that it represents the so-called Adam Kadmon which is intended to allude to the notion of the Primordial and/or Perfected Man synonymously. In contrast, the (Thelemic) assertion that “Every man and every woman is a Star.” calls a number of technical matters into question since we have no significant example of human-stars which we can point to which are substantial enough to render that assertion anything more than an attractive metaphor. Lack of evidence notwithstanding, Mutational Alchemy is rooted in the assumption that it is not a metaphor and thus requires a proper anatomical explanation in order for us to better understand and more effectively act upon its premise. It must first (and foremost) be recognized that the esoteric Tree of Life is an ongoing work in progress that has assumed many forms across as many cultures and periods of time to which it is identified. The Tree of Life is a potent symbolism for human beings that figures prominently in many creation epics from numerous cultures. It is not the sole province of Qabbalah (aka Kabbalah, Caballa etc) alone but has been an ongoing focus of qabbalistic […Read More]

Over the past 18 months I have been hospitalized not less than 4 times with end-stage emphysema, a progressive disease that no one walks away from once it has reached that degree of severity. It’s hard to predict how much time I am left with…might be a few days, might be 10 years though the doctors think it’s more like months and I am being urged to wrap up whatever affairs I may need to and have been processed as a hospice patient for those who know the lingo. For those who don’t it basically means there isn’t anything they can do for me but try to make me as comfortable as possible.
This is not a boo-hoo fest. I am posting this as a matter of clarification regarding the future of The Abrahadabra Institute and nothing else. It’s been a long and a difficult road from the first faint envisioning of a proper physics of the Body of Light to the creation of a dialogue that is strong enough to go the distance reaching out to other great minds from a position of relative abandon to engage and challenge others to recognize and take up the call to action. I have been beset with all manner of isolation and obstacle in this battle which has been slow going but very steady and strong notwithstanding. I didn’t know it when I got started on this path that I would probably need about 300 years and a certain amount of funding to bring all of this to fruition – more time than I have to spend and no financing of any kind.
Now that I have come too far to back out (and wouldn’t want to even if I could!) I will have to settle for having begun and carried a task on its own merits without ever seeing the final outcome and that’s ok – in any case it beats being someone else’s brainwashed zombie. The Abrahadabra Institute will survive because the world needs it though people are generally unaware how great a need exists. This is changing ever so gradually as people begin to see what a profound potential exists here. What will happen in my absence is that the Institute will pass to Izi Sesa Ningishzidda who will watch over it and keep it safe from harm. Another will come along at some point with the wherewithall to advance it according to her specifications.
Though I do not typically assume the mantle of teacher I have made a few exceptions for individuals who showed enough promise to warrant the drain on my time and general resources. To date, Izi is the only one who has made it through enough gates to define her as a full-time student of Abrahadabra. Even Mutational Alchemy which is a very advanced metaphysics is not lost on her the way it is with so many others. Izi has the right nature and nurture (both) to ask the right questions and stick with it until the right answers are found. Her natural instincts combined with an impeccable study habits endow her with an innate capacity for getting to the truth no matter how concealed so that I have every confidence that there is nothing so obtuse as to remain hidden from her for very long. There is only one Magister Ouroboros incarnated at any time so that while I live that office remains with me but will pass to her in due course as well once I have gone.
In the interim readers should know that there would be no Abrahadabra Institute at all if not for Izi. Even if my health were not compromised it’s too much work for one person managing the development of Mutational Alchemy and the Abrahadabra Institute at the same time so that a choice has to be made and I don’t personally need the Institute as much as I need Mutational Alchemy to advance as far as I can push it. People are generally unaccustomed to thinking of the Body of Light as a proper physics and are hesitant to recognize that we have the means to make it one lacking the Will (chiefly) inasmuch as the precedents are all over the map stretching back thousands of years. All that is really lacking is an individual with the vision and compilation skills to piece the map together.
In 2013 Izi and I registered The Abrahadabra Institute as a Limited Liability Company with the idea of using it as the organizational hub for the promotion of all things Abrahadabra. Our first major project was the Mutational Alchemy Tarot Deck which offers people a means of learning the basics of Mutational Alchemy in a form that many will already be acquainted with. The next project is an extensive course curriculum that will take students through the steps necessary to become proficient applicants of the loftiest spiritual alchemy on Earth. Though one really should not be intimidated by it it is fair to say we have raised the bar higher than it has ever been raised in this world and do not cater to the weak or the excuse-makers. Many have tried to steal from us but cannot get very far with this – first because our material is so revolutionary and second because explaining what they have stolen is such an overwhelming task.
So that’s the update. Izi is the glue that has been holding it all together and when I pass there should be no question that the torch passes to her. It’s impossible to predict with confidence when that will be, though we both kind of feel like the TwinStar isn’t done with me yet and there is a lot that still hangs in the balance so this announcement is more a prudent clarification than a prediction of anything per se.
