Temple of THEM 2015 Guidebook

Deluxe Hardcover Edition

This 2015 revision of the Temple of THEM’s handbook is an attempt at the most comprehensive guide offered to the Temple to date and is broken into four distinct categories: Theory, Practice, Sorcery and History.

This is not an exhaustive manual that will answer all your questions nor put at your fingertips everything we have written. But it is the most frank and revealing set of tools since Liber ISS that the Temple has ever made available as a means to approach, understand and apply our current.

The Sprawling of Artifacts: Voyager

Voyager

A gifted bottle of Mead, employed and dedicated to THEM in an Oror, used to convey the messages of THEM (printed copies of Prokaryotes and Directive A-66). Here are the papers ready to be stored in a bottle to be sealed and thrown into the Ocean at a Diabolic Gnostic ceremony taking place on the 20th June YT09.

Destination, Unknown.

Oror May 17th Year YT.09

IMG_20150518_223524

The Oror is essentially a religious rite in that it is performed dutifully every 17th of the Month. Twelve times a year. During which ceremony the Remembrants recall in vivid detail and fondness the other members of the Temple of THEM and their exploits and achievements that have contributed to the Temple’s growth and that of personal advancement through their contact with those tendrils. Its purpose is to cement the Temple members scattered far and wide across time and space in Supra Solidarity and lest we forget, Remember THEM.

A toast, dedication, symbolic gesture and place of power is often combined to honour the past, present and fallen.

[The Year of the Tendril (YT) refers to the passage of time since the Inauguration of the Temple of THEM in 2006 C.E. – this being 2016 C.E or YT 09 – nine years (A third of the way into THEM’s charter) since Inauguration.]

BATHYSPHERE:

Myths Bitches: Into The Fire E-Zine

Ryan Anschauung and a Matter of Honour: Into the Fire E-Zine

The Triumphant March of the Soul

Of all my curiosities in the occult world there stood one among all the others, a mysterious querent underlying my exploration of all of the varied works and methods employed in the Great and even Minor Works of the transmutation of the Alchemical Soul.

Twenty years on I stand on the threshold of great inner discovery after discovery – and staggered at the depths the aspiring noeticist can plumb with the right modifications to the personality. And I stare in awe at the glittering caves before me, deep beyond and beneath the superficial surfaces of the persona and the contrivances of the Ego at these subterranean narrows sprawling even now into the darkness underground. The exciting prospect of what lies within them beckons and wherein I thought I had traversed deeply into the darkness I am awakened again by the scale of what can be seen within the night of the human psyche.

I remain convinced of the superiority of the intrepid waymaker determined to shrug off the binds and edges that others insist are the limits of shape and twist my own geometry into being, marching triumphantly toward my Wyrd with THEM breathing at my back.

The painful unfolding of time and actions, carefully manifest as a Seer, seeing what footholds will be required years ahead of the time in which I find myself and the dutiful construction of these tools which beguile and enigmatize the gaze of others watching me at the workshop that is my life and the vision I hold for Great Things. But still it sleeps. Yet the changes I have wrought and hewn from the rough uncut stone that I was, through the intense fires of alchemical process, hacking and hawing, smelting and distilling, calcinating and cautiously bubbling away within the crucible that is plural-me, adding acids and precious metals is beginning to take a shape that pleases me greatly…

I also remain convinced that Time is of the Essence, a statement very deep in its implications. All I can do is continue to move to align the stars toward the appropriate celestial arrangement when THEY will be released, from within, and without.
