The Force is Fire

Sithism, Spirituality
{This is an excerpt from our forthcoming book, "Sith Academy: Lords of the Force".} The Force is an invisible inner fire that burns beneath the perceptions of the mundane. In the most powerful beings, it becomes a raging inferno that cannot be contained; it pours forth in great acts of fiery destruction of entire orders or blazing forgings of new ones. In ordinary beings, the Force is a slow burn that generates the energy necessary to live, without causing undue harm to others. In weak beings, the Force is a flickering ember that can barely generate enough psychic heat to survive in a cold world. And when this ember finally burns out, every being joins the legions of the dead in the Forceless Void. Every Sith Lord is a spiritual…

Seeing the Shadow World

Metaphysics
Becoming a Black Sun Seer (Borzûm-Gurûzâth) means learning to unsee the light of the White Sun that blinds most beings to the existence of the formless, Shadow World. For the White Sunlight only illuminates forms (chanz)—those objects, ideas, words and social constructs we can conceive of, speak about and interact with. We say that the White Sun is the Source (Tozg) which fills our minds with models of the world—our mundane sensory awareness, theories, philosophies, ideologies, religions, languages and cultures. To the White Sunnite, these constructs are all that one should be concerned about; anything outside of the White Sunlit World is illusory, delusional, insignificant or evil. To the White Sunnite, “the map is the territory”, outside of which he has no interest in venturing. To the Black Sunnite, this…

The Return of Tezcatlipoca

The Return of Tezcatlipoca

Philosophy, Revelation
{ The following was one my early posts after founding the Order back in 2010. I am re-posting it for historical interest, to check the evolution of my own thinking and to see whether it looks delusional or accurate today. It's not hard to see how I moved to "Sith Academy" and began work on that "empire of black sorcerers" shortly after this was written. In retrospect, the prediction that 12/21/2012 would bring a new Black Sun age of strife and darkness looks increasingly accurate to me, but it remains to be seen whether Tezcatlipoca will return in his old form or in some other mask. } Today I’d like to offer my latest epiphany to fellow travelers in the Way of the Shadow, which is simply this: Tezcatlipoca is returning!…

The Secret of Magic

Magick, Memetics
The secret of magic is the same, whether one is talking about the magic of metaphysics, cooking, or art. That is: to combine existing ideas, ingredients or elements into a new concoction that appeals powerfully to people of a particular time and place. Magic is not the creation of new ideas or ingredients, because there is nothing new under the sun. Nor is magic a quest for "truth", for it is the will and the imagination, not the intellect, that the magician plays upon. Magic lies in combining old elements in a novel way that takes advantage of the knowledge, opportunities and spirit that exist in the magician's particular milieu. Magic is the art and science of fooling yourself and others, and the magician is a clever thief, trickster, con-artist…
