Jason on the Necronomicon and pathworking

My close friend Jason and I have been having some informative emailing back and forth while he’s abroad. I know I am, but for those of you perhaps interested in some of the Cthulhu mythos, some of these tidbits may be interesting. Perhaps I can get Jason to expound on some of this if anyone cares. He is the ritual to my freestyle.

JasonI would highly recommend Regardie’s “GARDEN of POMEGRANATES” as a guide and methodology fo qabbalistic pathworking, if you have any interest in the inverse side of the tree, the qlippothic or “world of shells”, then Kenneth Grant is your man, particularly “NIGHTSIDE of EDEN”. Tyson’s version of the necronomicon adds a nice fresh and less cheesy depth to the mythos. my opinion of the necronomicon in all its incarnations is entirely spurious however. the only edition that even comes close to being a usable system is the Simon edition (the oh so popular Avon paperback avlb. everywhere!) but it contains so many errors and flagrant mistakes of both an occult and an historical nature is utterly laughable. for instance the use of a magick circle is omitted as unnecessary (!!!), as the necronomicon is purportedly a grimoire of ceremonial evocation the use of a circle is of paramount importance, but there are a multitude of worse errors both in the Simon Edition itself and in the follow up supplements and audio workshops such as:

– Simon claims the “Oracles of Zoroaster” were of Sumerian origin, it wasn’t!
– he says no gold or jewelry has ever been found, what about the Royal Tombs Of Ur!!
– all ziggurats had 7 levels, some had 3 some 9!
– each level is associated with a planet, wrong!
– each of the 7 cities of sumer were associated with a planet, there were more than 7 none of which were associated with any particular planet
– the Summerian word for house is Bar, it isnt! the sumer word for house is E, as in E-anna, “the house of heaven”!
– Simon comments on what he calls the “Sumerian maqlu text”, the maqlu text is Babylonian!

Etc. Etc., as far as the necronomicon is concerned it is only interesting fiction but part of a larger framework and that is where my interest lies. the entirety of the Cthulhu mythos, however i would not use the Necronomicon as the basis for tapping into that current, Kenneth Grant, Don Webb and others have explored and exponded enough on this to illustrate a correlation between cuthulu and the goetic and qlippothic techniques, i believe Phil Hine and P.J. Carol have also done some work in this area.

He had this to add:

I would only add, particularily becuase you posted this e-mail, that anyone intrested in uncovering more concerning the facts behind the various versions of the necronomicon as a printed work and many of the hoaxes surrounding it should read “THE NECRONOMICON FILES”, by Daniel Harms and John Wisdom Gonce III, it is a fascinating study of the book and is obviously exhaustively researched as well. In it you will find all of the errors and inconsistencies i pointed out and so many many more, plus an absolute ton of other info, background/history, etc, basically everything you would ever want to know about the Necronomicon. Also for a working theoryof an occult/magickal nature Kenneth Grant’s “Nightside of Eden” particularily as well as a the rest of his Typhonian Tradition, “The Pseudonomicon”, by Phil Hine is also valuable if one were intrested in pursuing th Cthulu mythos in a magickal way!

Food Not Bombs: or, Free Bread and Soup is a National Threat

Food not Bombs promotes organization and democracy. This is a problem for most people in power here in the US. The clear message that has been sent for 20 years straight now is that charity is something that should weaken people.

Observe the Faith-Based Initiatives for a resonably firm proof of this. The Salvation Army is another fine example. Poor people are not being told how to actually improve their quality of life, they are instead given a deeply sick rationalization for their suffering, coupled with the promise of an afterlife that will be better.

[…]

“They said they want to end homelessness and I guess one way to do that is to starve them out,” said Cameron Morrow, a Parker resident who volunteers twice a week feeding the hungry at the park.

[…]

the USDA estimates we throw out about 10 tons of perfectly good food each month here in the US. They also estimate that 11.9% of all US homes suffer from the hilarious euphemism of “food insecurity” — in other words, they don’t have enough f***ing food. That’s bad enough, but remember this is US homes, not US shelters and streets.

B.C. computer maker touting quantum leap

A Canadian company that claims to have built the world’s first marketable “quantum computer” – a hyper-fast data processor touted by the firm’s founder as potentially “the most significant invention of our generation” – has the high-tech community buzzing ahead of a scheduled unveiling next week in California.

D-Wave Systems, the Burnaby, B.C.-based hardware developer headed by 34-year-old theoretical physicist Geordie Rose, has issued an open invitation to all technophiles to become “an eyewitness to history” at the live-link, Feb. 13 launch of the company’s “16-qubit” Orion supercomputer.

BBC explores 9/11 conspiracy

Press Esc talks up a documentary on BBC Two that explores (and brings to the mainstream) the conspiracy theories surrounding America’s wake-up call:

September 11 conspiracies will go mainstream on Sunday as BBC airs an hour long documentary that investigates the growing number of conspiracy theories surrounding the 9/11 attacks.

9/11: The Conspiracy Files, will try to answer the question that has been doing the rounds on the Internet ever since the hijacked planes crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center: “Is it an inside job?”

According to the BBC, investigators have travelled across the United States speaking to eyewitnesses trying to separate fact from fiction.

The programme produced by Guy Smith raises another important question: “why was America so unprepared when terror attack warnings had been received?”

According to a Scripps Howard poll, 36% of 1,010 Americans believe that the government is responsible for the attacks either by omission or by commission.

The official 9/11 commission report concluded that “there were specific points of vulnerability in the plot and opportunities to disrupt it.

“The outrage caused by September 11th allowed the present administration to instantly implement policies its members have long supported, but which were otherwise infeasible,” according to the main conspiracy website, 911Truth.org, which receives thousands of visitors every day. “9/11 was exploited to launch an open-ended, perpetual “war on terror,” actually a war against any and all enemies the US government may designate. The case of Iraq shows that the target countries of this war need have nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11.”

Check out the BBC page here.

Heh, and Penn & Teller had an episode of Bullshit! that explored 9/11 that, just as with the yoga episode, I found pretty weak and discrediting to their reporting skills.

PEAR Shutting Down

The New York Times reports that the PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) lab is shutting down.

“The laboratory has conducted studies on extrasensory perception and telekinesis from its cramped quarters in the basement of the university’s engineering building since 1979. Its equipment is aging, its finances dwindling.”

‘Doomsday’ vault design unveiled

The final design for a “doomsday” vault that will house seeds from all known varieties of food crops has been unveiled by the Norwegian government.

The Svalbard International Seed Vault will be built into a mountainside on a remote island near the North Pole.

The vault aims to safeguard the world’s agriculture from future catastrophes, such as nuclear war, asteroid strikes and climate change.

I think this is very good. I’m not quite so extreme with my intonations… I learned mine from Israel Regardie’s Golden Dawn tapes.
