The Fourth Terrible Truth: The Gods are Hostile

Nine Maxims
{I have previously posted about the first three of the "Nine Maxims" of the Black Sun Path. But it is more accurate to call them the "Nine Terrible Truths" ("Grâz Burgûdik Chârgz")--for that is what they are. I now continue where I left off, with the fourth Terrible Truth.} This Terrible Truth expresses the strong sense every Black Sunnite has, that this world is not the work of a benevolent deity or Tao, but of hostile gods or forces that absolutely want us all dead.

In this post we discuss the first three Maxims: Remember that this world and everything in it will die. Know that nothing is true and everything is permitted. Seek unlimited power and conquest.
