Satan

Our vision of Satan combines Egypt, Ancient Mesopotamia & Mediterranean cultures, oriental traditions (Shaivism, Vamachara, Tantric Buddhism, Taoism) with post-modern scientific worldview. In this regard, we bring occult understanding of Satan beyond common theistic-atheistic dichotomy: Satan is neither a demiurge-creator nor the primal creation, but the primordial current of emergence, evolution, progress, flowing from the very dark roots outside any intrinsic existence (see Buddhist concept of Śūnyatā), passing through dependent origination of the existent, and directed towards fractal individuation within the multitude of evolving intelligence. As the Princeps of individuation he is the highest individuality of the multiverse itself, and in this sense we see him as a deity and accept his existence. But at the same time, Satan is empty of intrinsic existence: his nature is dependently arisen from the whole multiplicity of things that exist in the world. The described approach helps to understand Aleister Crowley's vision of mystic’s Atheism as one of the highest, though misunderstood approaches that one can take on religion.

Since Satan's image synthesizes and crystalizes the whole multitude of dark deities throughout the whole history of mankind, we prefer henotheistic approach to Satanism. In practice it means that Satan (by whichever name the practitioner knows him) becomes the “center of gravity” for the fractal multiplicity of Dark Pantheon of deities, and different daemonic deities (in fact, seen as his avatars) can assume the leading role in an ecstatic invocation or occult work according to the situation that requires their presence.

As above, so below: a deep look into the inner Self (a personal equivalent of Satan) reveals and teaches how to work with the same inner polyphony, the inner multiplicity of the Dark Pantheon. This represents Satanism as a path for initiatory occult development.
