The Study of Ancient Chaldean & Necronomicon Mysticism

A Second Look At Lovecraft: Warlock Asylum’s Interview With Author Bobby Derie

Recently, I got a chance to converse with Bobby Derie. He is an avid researcher in the field of Lovecraftian lore and some of its psychological effects. He has published a book entitled, Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos. I am happy that we had a chance to exchange some ideas and vibe a bit. We appreciate the time that he has taken to answer a few questions.

Warlock Asylum: After coming into knowledge of your work, I must say that I am deeply impressed! It seems that you have been at the helm of your interests and research for quite some time. However, for our readers who may not be familiar with your work, how would you describe yourself? Who is Bobby Derie?

Bobby Derie: Slave to a cubicle by day, by night I write to save what little is left of my soul…at the moment that means keeping up my weekly fiction blog at http://the-unpublishable.com and my ongoing Lovecraft scholarship source http://wikithulhu.com. Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos is my first published non-fiction work.

Warlock Asylum: How were you introduced to the work of H. P. Lovecraft?

Bobby Derie: My dad gave me a copy of the first Del Ray anthology when I was about nine, and when I was a little older I had the chance to raid his shelves for the Chaosium Call of Cthulhu editions…you could say that reading The Dunwich Cycle and The Shub-Niggurath Cycle as a teenager left its mark.

Warlock Asylum: Some people say that Lovecraft’s work was fueled by a sort of weird insanity. Others are of the opinion that he was in some sort of subliminal communion with otherworldly entities. I once read in some material by Donald Tyson that Lovecraft did in fact attempt magic as a youth. What is your opinion in regards to such things?

Bobby Derie: There is some truth to the notion that the shadow of mental illness hung over Lovecraft for much of his life; his father died in an asylum, his mother suffered from mental illness, and Lovecraft himself had a sort of breakdown as a teenager which prevented him from finishing high school. You can definitely see examples in his work of the horrors of heredity – where an individual is born with some inherent fault or repellent aspect which, being biological, is impossible for them to change or avoid – which may echo some of his own feelings.

With regard to Lovecraft as a magician – aside from playing as a pagan in his youth, Lovecraft was a fairly staunch materialist, with no belief in the occult (and actively worked against belief in the supernatural at times). That said, so much of his work is suffused with elements of the occult, that many people have considered him a secret or unconscious adept – during his own lifetime at least two correspondents truly believed he possessed true occult knowledge, which he masqueraded as fiction, the most famous of which is William Lumley. Kenneth Grant was, I think, the first person to put into print the idea that Lovecraft was unconsciously tapping in to some oneiric current; Donald Tyson is simply one of the latest, although he does put an interesting spin on it…suggesting that Lovecraft’s chaste life unwittingly followed an ascetic path that triggered his kundalini.

Warlock Asylum: I must say that you have put forth some intense work in the “Dollars of Dagon,” which appeared in The Unspeakable Oath 19. How did you get into writing?

Bobby Derie: I sort of fell into it backwards; my earliest efforts were an effort to organize and expand on what I was reading at the time, and by chance that led to an opportunity to do some freelance work for the Shadowrun role-playing game.

Warlock Asylum: H. P. Lovecraft, The Cthulhu Mythos, and other related material, has become a source of influence for film, music, role-playing games, and even magic. In your own opinion, how is it that Lovecraft has been able to transcend simple fiction and create a culture of its own?

Bobby Derie: I think the essence of it is the appeal of a shared universe. Back in the days of Weird Tales, it was incredibly unique to have different stories by as many authors each referencing aspects of the same bizarre, novel mythology; this was back in the days when trying to publish Tarzan or Sherlock Holmes or Buck Rogers fan-fiction would get you sued (which is why they pretty much only appeared in Tijuana bibles during the era). When you create an open framework like that, it expands the possibility space tremendously and really excites the imagination; people start reading the stories more deeply than they might otherwise because they want to catch the connections and see the bigger picture. Today it’s all a bit of fun with NecronomiCox dildos and plush Cthulhu slippers, but you’d never have gotten that far if the Mythos had not been so open and inviting to both readers and writers for such a long time.

"This was as many Necornomicons as I could fit into one picture. For more on the Necronomicon, I highly recommend The Necronomicon Files by John Wisdom Gonce III & Dan Harms. In fairness, I should reveal that Dan is a friend and is currently holding my copy of the Norwegian Necronomicon hostage." -Bobbie Derie

Warlock Asylum: Aside from the pure literary work of the Cthulhu Mythos and Lovecraftian fiction, exists the popular Simon Necronomicon and its initiatory structure. The grimoire, which is highly controversial, has led to the merged magic of Sumer with some Lovecraftian archetypes. How do you feel about such works and their perspective chance of reaching gnosis through such?

Bobby Derie: I view the Lovecraftian occult as essentially a parallel development to the fiction; there’s some crossover where later stories influence occult writers and vice versa, but for the most part they have very similar beginnings and then take off in different directions. Whether you believe in the occult or not, if you approach it from that perspective a couple conclusions tend to pop out: there is a demand for the Lovecraftian occult (be it a pseudo-Necronomicon or ritual invocation of the Great Old Ones or what have you), there are individuals that will supply that demand, and there are individuals that will incorporate that material into their belief system.

When you look at the various Necronomicons, you can decipher the underlying intent fairly easily – the Hay Necronomicon was a well-intentioned hoax, the Simon Necronomicon intended to be more serious, Tyson’s Necronomicon series a practical pop-occult set for beginnings, Asenath Waite’s Necronomicon Gnosis a dedicated effort at synthesizing material from these different traditions. But after it is published, and the Peter Levendas and Kenneth Grants and Donald Tysons of the world get their little royalty checks, it’s regular people that pick those books up and read them and begin to expand on and work with them – and why not? I may be learning a little bit more toward Phil Hine here, but just because we know the Simon Necronomicon isn’t “the” Necronomicon which Lovecraft wrote about, doesn’t make it any less valid than any other book of magic or ritual.

Author: Bobby Derie

Warlock Asylum: I would like to congratulate you on your recent release the book, Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos. Thanks for the mention in the book as well. How did this work come about?

Bobby Derie: I was in the last year of graduate school, and combing the University library for material – there is seldom anything as satisfying as going through a really big library – and the idea came into my head to do a monograph on sex in the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft. I hadn’t read much about it at that point, and figured it would be fairly quick and easy to write about. Well, a bit of digging disabused that notion – I was far from the first to write about sex and the Cthulhu Mythos. What struck me, as I was picking up sources and going through Lovecraft’s letters, however, was how little that the scholars were talking to each other on the subject – plenty of people had written on sex and the Mythos, but no-one apparently wanted to put the pieces together or do a systemic analysis. So, I sat down, drew up an outline, and started to collect sources and write….18 months later, I had the first draft of Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos. It was a monstrous, bloated manuscript at over 400 pages, desperately in want of an editor, festooned with many footnotes, and I had no idea who would consider publishing it. S. T. Joshi was kind enough to look at it, and gave some judicious advice on cutting it down to a publishable size (which I took religiously; first drafts are meant for cutting), and recommended it to Hippocampus Press for publishing. It’s still not perfect, but I’m glad to have the beast in print at last.

Warlock Asylum: Now this may sound a bit funny, but it must cross our minds that if Lovecraft has been able to influence so many aspects of human life, then it must be possible that the Cthulhu Mythos may one day, in fact, describe an actual sexual fetish. Do you have any thoughts on the matter?

Bobby Derie: It almost already does. For many people, simply saying “Cthulhu” and “sex” in the same sentence brings to mind tentacle erotica or tentacle fetish play, most often as depicted in Japanese erotic anime and manga. The truth is a bit weirder, and I go into it in more depth in the book – both the tentacles in weird fiction as we know them today and the tentacle sex in Japanese adult comics and animated work share some of the same literary and artistic predecessors – and by association, continue to have a relatively close association and impact on pop culture today, with artifacts like tentacle sex toys from Bad Dragon or Whipspider Rubberworks.

Warlock Asylum: One of the most-respected forms of art today is Japanese manga. Sex and the Cthulhu Mythos also goes into the relationship between Japanese manga, anime, and Lovecraft fiction. Can you give us just a brief overview of this?

Bobby Derie: Japanese translations of Lovecraft’s fiction were being published in Japan at least since the 1940s, but didn’t particularly “take off” in the popular imagination until the Japanese version of the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game hit in the 1980s; at that point you can see dozens of direct and discreet references to Lovecraft and the Mythos in any number of games, light novels, anime, and manga, some of which were oriented toward adults with sex and nudity. Penetrative tentacle sex also arose around the same time, an innovation of mangaka Toshio Maeda to circumvent censorship, and because it worked it became a relatively popular trope in the Japanese visual idiom – and a very idiosyncratic one when Japanese anime and manga began to crossover to the West. The Mythos is still very popular in Japan today, as evidenced by the success of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and the like, but the sexual element is hard to judge from America, if only because relatively so little material makes its way into translation, and that which does come across – like Mystery of the Necronomicon - isn’t particularly representative.

Warlock Asylum: Well, I would like to thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions and share some of your insights with us. What final words would you like to share with our readers?

Bobby Derie: I’ve long been of the opinion that books are better when they’re shared, and having hunted down obscure stuff like the Book of the Forgotten Ones and New Flesh Palladium, I hate for that effort to go to waste. So for anyone interested in the section of the book on Sex & the Lovecraftian Occult, you can read an early draft for free here: https://app.box.com/s/enfevecr5c5s521jvrgw

Lifting The Veil On The Construction of the Simon Necronomicon: The Origin of the Gate-Walking Initiation & The Identity of “Simon”

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please take the time to review some of our previous posts. We wish you all the best during this holiday season. Stay blessed!

We would like to thank all of our readers for their support over the years. We are happy to announce that during the last three months, our page views and subscribers have been the highest ever, since we have started this page. It was announced earlier, that our last post would reveal the identity of the Mad Arab and how the Simon Necronomicon was created. Since we appreciate all the support that we have received, we will also reveal the identity of “Simon” in this article. While we have retired the Papers in the Attic blog page, the majority of posts and pages will remain. Feel free to book mark this page for your own reference work also.

 

 

The Identity of the Mad Arab

 

One of the prominent mysteries of the Necronomicon Tradition is the identity of its narrator, a figure known only as the Mad Arab. The Mad Arab is a component figure. First, the example of the Mad Arab descended and ascending, into and from the Netherworld is reminiscent of the goddess Ishtar herself. In the Simon Necronomicon, we read:

“For this is the Book of the Dead, the Book of the Black Earth, that I have writ down at the peril of my life, exactly as I received it, on the planes of the IGIGI, the cruel celestial spirits from beyond the Wanderers of the Wastes.”

 

In the Magan Text, we are told concerning Din.Gir Ishtar:

“ISHTAR, Daughter of SIN, she set forth…To the Black Earth, the Land of CUTHA”

In previous posts, we illustrated that in such cases, the Goddess Ishtar was symbolic of a class of magicians. For more information, please view our Return of the Ancient Ones article. Another similarity that further reinforces that the Mad Arab is symbolic of the Goddess Ishtar can be found in how Din.Gir Ishtar ascended from the Netherworld. We read the following in the Magan Text:

 

“Upon the corpse of INANNA
Sixty times they sprinkled
The Water of Life of ENKI
Upon the corpse of ISHTAR
Sixty times they sprinkled
The Food of Life of ENKI

Upon the corpse
Hung from a stake

They directed the Spirit of Life
INANNA AROSE.

The Dark Waters trembled and roiled.”

 

In the Magan Text, we see that Din.Gir Ishtar’s resurrection was heralded by the stirring of the “dark waters,” also known as egura, sometimes egurra, in Sumerian mythology. The Simon Necronomicon also mentions the following in its Book of Calling:

 “This is the Book of EGURA, the Dark Waters of ABSU, Realm of ERESHKIGAL, Queen of Death.”

The “stirring of the dark waters” in the Necronomicon Gnosis is symbolic of the “calling” after one’s initiation. In any event, we see that Din.Gir Ishtar’s ascent was marked by the “stirring of these dark waters.” (The reader should note that the Magan Text’s version of Ishtar’s Descent is not a mistaken version of the ancient Mesopotamian mythology, but an esoteric of initiation, using this very same mythology as a template.)  We also read of these same “dark waters” stirring in the Mad Arab’s experience:

 “A wind has risen. The Dark Waters stir. This is the Book of the Servant of the Gods . . .”

Here, we can see that like the Goddess Ishtar, the Mad Arab went through the same initiation. We can therefore, say that one aspect of the Mad Arab is Din.Gir Ishtar herself. This was further emphasized in a previous post entitled, Enochian Meaning of the Term “Mad Arab.”  The article illustrates that the meaning of the term Mad Arab is in fact an attribute of the Goddess Ishtar:

 

Enochian                                                    English Meaning

Mad                                                                    God or Your God

Ar                                                                        That

Ab                                                                       Daughter of Light

 

 

The Necronomicon Gnosis seems to imply that in the same manner Christians initiate themselves the mind of Christ, through some symbolic act relative to his life’s work, followers of the Goddess Ishtar would initiate themselves into her mysteries by making the same journey into the Netherworld as did the Goddess. In the introductory notes of the Simon Necronomicon we read:

“But what of INANNA, the single planetary deity having a female manifestation among the Sumerians? She is invoked in the NECRONOMICON and identified as the vanquisher of Death, for she descended into the Underworld and defeated her sister, the Goddess of the Abyss, Queen ERESHKIGAL (possibly another name for TIAMAT). Interestingly enough, the myth has many parallels with the Christian concept of Christ’s death and resurrection, among which the Crucifixion (INANNA was impaled on a stake as a corpse), the three days in the Sumerian Hades, and the eventual Resurrection are outstanding examples of how Sumerian mythology previewed the Christian religion by perhaps as many as three thousand years – a fact that beautifully illustrates the cosmic and eternal nature of this myth.

Therefore, the Goddess of the Witches has two distinct forms: the Ancient One, Goddess of the Dragon-like telluric Power which is raised in Magickal rituals, and the Elder Goddess, Defeater of Death, who brings the promise of Resurrection and Rejuvenation to her followers those who must reside for a time after death and between incarnations in what is called the “Summerland”.”

The other figure, perhaps a more personal identification of the Mad Arab, is Aleister Crowley himself. The Simon Necronomicon description of the Mad Arab gives many descriptions of Aleister Crowley’s life events. When these are observed in their total, the Necronomicon Gnosis reveals itself as the missing initiatory system of a deep mystery. For example, we read in the Simon Necronomicon the following:

“The wolves carry my name in their midnight speeches, and that quiet, subtle Voice is summoning me from afar. And a Voice much closer will shout into my ear with unholy impatience. The weight of my soul will decide its final resting place. Before that time, I must put down here all that I can concerning the horrors that stalk Without,”

The Mad Arab’s mention of the “voice” is reference to Aleister Crowley’s work, The Vision and the Voice, wherein he describes his journey through the 30 Aeythrs. Here is one example, that we later read in the Simon Necronomicon:

“KUTULU raises his head and stares up through the Veils of sunkun Varloorni, up through the Abyss, and fixes his stare upon me; wherefore I must with haste write this indeed,”

The words of the “Mad Arab” as they appear above, is a direct lift from what is written by Crowley concerning the 1st Aethyr. In Vision and the Voice, we read:

“The great and terrible Angel keeps on looking at me, as if to bar me from the vision. There is another forcing my head down in sleep.”

This comparison of the Mad Arab’s narrative to Aleister Crowley’s journal has been observed by others. The Mad Arab in his First Testimony, wrote the following:

“I did not bear the same markings as the stone, but I had the feeling I could almost read the characters, but could not, as though I once knew the tongue but had since long forgotten. My head began to ache as though a devil was pounding my skull, when a shaft of moonlight struck the metal amulet, for I know now what it was, and a voice entered into my head and told me the secrets of the scene I had witnessed in one word: KUTULU.”

Legendary occultist, Kenneth Grant, mentioned the following in the book Outer Gateways:

“The word Tutulu was heard by Crowley during an initiation into the Aethyr of Zaa which he underwent in Algiers on November 24th, 1909. Its appearance in his vision of the 27th Aire suggests a perichoresis with the Necronomicon Current. It is probable that the word transcribed by H.P. Lovecraft as ‘Cthulhu’ is a variant form or corruption of Tutulu,”

Not only does Kenneth Grant reveal that the “Mad Arab’s” experience is reminiscent of Crowley’s work, but he also gives a clue that the Simon Necronomicon’s take of the Mad Arab mythos derives from Crowley by pointing out the similarity between the words Tutulu and Cthulhu.

Once again, we face another similarity, which further identifies the Mad Arab as Crowley. In the Mad Arab’s First Testimony, we read:

“The lines of my life have been obliterated by my wanderings in the Waste, over the letters writ in the heavens by the gods.”

Aleister Crowley was known as the “wanderer of the waste”. This phrase “wanderer of the waste” appears many times in the Simon Necronomicon as “wanderers of the wastes,” signifying a class, the Ishtar-Class of adepts of whom Aleister Crowley was a part in his reverence for Babalon.”

 

 

How Was The Simon Necronomicon Created?

 

The method behind the Simon Necronomicon’s creation has been just a great a mystery as the grimoire itself. In a Wikipedia article, under the topic Simon Necronomicon, we read:

The introduction attempts to establish links between H. P. Lovecraft, Aleister Crowley and ancient mythology (including Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, and Chaldean myths and rituals), and draw parallels to other religions (such as Christianity, Wicca, Satanism and Hebrew Mythology).”

The ancient Mesopotamian source material that was used in the creation of the Simon Necronomicon is quite apparent and is listed in the tome’s bibliography. However, the heart of the Simon Necronomicon’s workings, is based on its Gate-Walking rituals of initiation. This is the central thesis of the grimoire itself. Erroneously, many have tried to discredit the work of “Simon” by stating that the Gate-Walking rituals derive from Western Ceremonial magick. Nothing can be further from the truth.

In the Lovecraftian fictional account of the Cthulhu cult, which appears in the Call of Cthulhu story, we are told that the cult’s was centered in Arabia, with some immortals living in China. The Mad Arab, according to Lovecraft fiction, spent some time in Babylon, and received substantial knowledge of its ancient mysteries. This is apparent in Simon’s version of the Necronomicon. However, the rites of the “deathless Chinamen” form the basis of the Gate-walking rites of initiation.

Different than popular opinion, the gate-walking initiation is based on ancient Taoist practices. When the Simon Necronomicon was released, these practices were not known to the West, nor was the information pertaining to such, translated in English. This means that “Simon” had to have a knowledge of the Chinese language. We can clearly see that such is the case, when we review the works of Taoist Priests that have now expounded about their ageless tradition in English. Professor Jerry A. Johnson, in his long sought after work, Daoist Magical incantations, Hand Seals, and Star Stepping, writes the following about the “star stepping rituals” of the ancient Taoist tradition. This information is identical to what appears in the Simon Necronomicon. Notice what is written in Johnson manual, cited above, on pages 103-104:

“This star is also known as “The Gate of the Moon,” and it represents entry into the spirit realm. When working specifically with just the “Clarity of Yang” star as a magical portal, the altar should face the North. It is also important that the magical Seal used to open the celestial gate be engraved onto a silver talisman, during one of the three days of the Full Moon, and that no sunlight ever be permitted to shine onto this Seal. The incense used to access the spirit realm of the First Star is Camphor.

The Second Star in known as the “Essence of Yin:” It is the star located at the outer bottom edge of the Dipper’s bowl, and it is sometimes called “The Revolver of the Sky.” This star is also known as the “Gate of Mercury.”

The Third Star in known as the “True One:” It is the star located directly on the “floor” of the Dipper’s bowl, just before the star known as the Underworld, and it is sometimes called “The Rotator of the Sky.” This star is also known as the “Gate of Venus.”

The Fourth Star in known as the “Underworld:” It is the star located at the outer edge of the Dipper’s bowl, and it is sometimes called “The Lever of the Sky.” This star is also known as the “Gate of the Sun.” It is considered to be the energetic portal to the “land of the Midnight Sun,” and was sometimes known by the name “Mysterious Darkness” and “Black Obscurity.”

 The Fifth Star in known as the “Red One:” It is the star located on the Dipper’s panhandle, and it is sometimes called “The Balance of the Sky.” This star is also known as the “Gate of Mars.”

 The Sixth Star in known as the “Northern Bridge:” It is the star located on the Dipper’s panhandle, and it is sometimes called “The Generator of the Sky.” This star is also known as the “Gate of Jupiter.” The Northern Bridge leads directly to the Celestial Gate. It also contains an “invisible” star that orbits the Northern Bridge.

The Seventh Star in known as the “Celestial Gate:” It is the star located on the tip of the Dipper’s panhandle, and it is sometimes called “The Harmonizing Light of the Sky.” The Celestial Gate provides the Daoist sorcerer with the final entrance to the celestial realms. This star is also known as the “Gate of Saturn.”

While these practices comparisons are made by “Simon” in the Gates of the Necronomicon book, we can see that the gate-walking initiation derives from Taoist practice. If we compare, for example, what is written by Johnson, a Taoist Priest, concerning the “Gate of the Moon” with the information in the Simon tome, this becomes perfectly clear.

Johnson wrote: “This star is also known as “The Gate of the Moon,” and it represents entry into the spirit realm. When working specifically with just the “Clarity of Yang” star as a magical portal, the altar should face the North. It is also important that the magical Seal used to open the celestial gate be engraved onto a silver talisman, during one of the three days of the Full Moon, and that no sunlight ever be permitted to shine onto this Seal. The incense used to access the spirit realm of the First Star is Camphor.”

Simon Necronomicon: “This is his Seal, which you must engrave on his metal, on the thirteenth day of the Moon in which you are working, having no other person about you who may watch you in its manufacture. Being finished, it should be wrapped in a square of the finest silk and lain aside until such time as you desire its use, and then, it should be removed only after the Sun has gone to its rest. No ray of sunlight should strike the Seal, lest its power be rendered nil and a new Seal must needs be cast.”

Many practitioners of the Simon Necronomicon often find the I Ching useful in their work. Based on the information above, we can see why the two work together. This also explains some of the dream imagery of the “Jade Maidens,” or the Asian woman, appearing in the dreams of many Necronomicon Initiates that is erroneously mistaken for the Goddess Ishtar.

Lovecraft’s idea of a cult that was centered in Arabia and had immortal members who lived in China, while set in as an underlying theme in some of his fictional stories, does hold some validity to a historical empire that stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the regions of ancient Mesopotamia, is explained in the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. It is possible that the producers of the Simon Necronomicon was also aware of this fact, as it takes us into the origins of the Vasuh letters.

The Vasuh letters appear heavily in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, which claims that they are ancient symbols, some appearing on Japanese petroglyphs in Okinawa. However, these markings also appear in the Simon Necronomicon. These glyphs are older than the Simon Necronomicon, as they represent combination of different Asian mudras for various “power calls” from the Kuji-Kiri and other systems, and studied in the legacy of the Art of Ninzuwu. Here is an example below:

Vasuh Letter: Zhee

The Identity of Simon

 

The editor, known as “Simon” was indeed a composite figure, but consisted mainly of the work of Peter Levenda and the legendary Kenneth Grant. It seems that Levenda may have been more of a patsy for Grant.

While having a few associates involved in Thelema, Levenda’s was unknown to the majority of the community. Yet, he had a deep and profound knowledge. Levenda is also fluent in Chinese and due to such, would be the only possible candidate to be able to translate and structure the Simon Necronomicon’s initiatory aspects after the Taoist texts written in Chinese. He was the president of the international division of Ortronics, Inc., a telecommunications company based in Asia.

Kenneth Grant was a direct student of Aleister Crowley. He was also Crowley’s personal assistant and secretary.  In turn, he was allowed to read from Crowley’s extensive library on occult subjects, and performed ceremonial magic workings with him, becoming a high initiate of Crowley’s magical group. What is interesting about this, is that Grant started writing about the “Necronomicon,” since the Simon tome has been come out, and in detail more than any other writer.

Today, we celebrate the effort of what teamwork means. We have come to an understanding, and a solving, of what has been described as pop culture’s favorite grimoire. None of this, however, could be solved if it wasn’t for the efforts of the brave men and women who put their lives and psyche on the line in hopes of achieving and understand what ancient mysteries stood before our ancestors. We celebrate a new year and a new day of understanding. I wish you all the best on your spiritual journey. Stay blessed.

Those who would like to explore the Necronomicon Mysteries and the seek initiation by means of the gate-walking process please check our list of links for a suitable organization that provides information pertaining to such. If you are already working with a mentor from the Asaru Clan, they will continue to provide counsel by means of email. For those who independently have started the process, and seek further information about the system, we advise you to write the editor, Simon, for further information. When a person develops a system, rediscovers one, they have always been instrumental in providing clarity into how the energy works. There are many examples of this process. Crowley developed studies for those wishing to investigate the Book of the Law further. Kenneth Grant and Michael Betiaux did the same in their respected fields. Warlock Asylum has done the same with Art of Ninzuwu, along with Gregory Peters in his work. It is an act of responsibility by the author of such works to do such. From the interviews that I have read, Simon, does receive and answer email in regards to such. Since our investigation into the Simon Necronomicon Mysteries has ended, any emails inquiring about the Simon tome will be deleted.

In the meantime, we will still be working on the blog page itself, Readers may notice that a few “unnecessary” articles will be deleted. However, most of the information will remain as such and organized that will make it easier to access for the reader.

It is a very exciting time as we celebrate the end of our investigation into the Simon Neronomicon Mysteries. I must say on behalf of all out staff here today, the experience has been very rewarding and it is good to see that others have used of the grimoire as a springboard for future magical and spiritual practice and in their own personal development. This marks the end of an era, not only for those who have worked with the Simon Necronomicon, but the Western occult community at large and this resource will be preserved for the benefit and protection of all who inquire about such workings.

It was indeed a classic time and we wish that all our readers take the love and joy gathered in this experience with them and inculcate it in the day-to-day lives. May you be blessed on your path, never forgetting that the journey is the reward!

Why The Terms “Hoax” & “Simon Necronomicon” Don’t Mix

Love and Light! I would like to welcome all to the Papers in the Attic blog page. Please feel free to review some of our previous articles. Have a blessed day!

People are free to believe in whatever they want to believe. Over the years, however, I have learned that calling the Simon Necronomicon a “hoax” does more bad than good spiritually. It makes the grimoire appear to be harmless to the curious dabbler and a safe form of fun that is okay for the untrained to experiment with. One thing we do know for sure, if you weren’t around and involved with those who edited and published the Simon Necronomicon, then you don’t know what the intent was in releasing the grimoire to the public. Just because you have read a book or two criticizing the tome, it still comes down to speculation. Did Moses really part the Red Sea? Why aren’t his writings labeled as a hoax?

Every grimoire has a title that is based on a famed or legendary book for its age that’s part of the history of how grimoires come into being. Any criticisms in this regard, actually reveal how much people don’t know about occult history. For an author to name a grimoire after a fictional book, is in accord with occult history in regards to all grimoires. Was the Key of Solomon written by King Solomon? Of course not. Prior to the release of the Key of Solomon it had been a rumor a fable if you will that such a book existed.

Recently, I found an experience online under the Amazon reviews of the Simon Necronomicon. In reading the experience, it made me think how someone had a bad experience after purchasing the Simon Necronomicon because he light-heartedly thought of it as a hoax. Here is a link to the review. I thought it would be good to share itwith our readers. Enjoy!

 

 http://www.amazon.com/review/R1L4PRWD7C8OIE/ref=cm_aya_cmt?ie=UTF8&ASIN=0380751925#wasThisHelpful

“This is the only review I have ever made on amazon and I am doing it because:

1. I want people to know this book is seriously evil and is not something to play around with. I don’t care if it is a work of fiction or if it is true, this is evil , period.

and

2. I want to share my story because even though what happened was the worst thing that has happened to me in my entire life , it is a pretty cool story (100% true story) , I have no reason or motive to make this stuff up, I always say this when I tell my friends what happened to me, What I am about to tell you is completely true, every detail and word that I will say is true, no exagerations, no half truths, I will tell it exactly like it happened.

OK so I was in Mc Allen Texas, I am from Mexico but me and my family go visit the US often. And when we do we always go to Barnes and Noble. So I was walking around Barnes and Noble and in a little round table was this little black book. This exact version. I was like hey look a satanic/occult book , out of curiosity I opened it and took like 5 minutes to see more or less how the book was made up. I was like hey this is a legitly satanic book, I am going to buy it to show it to my friends. I didn’t give it much thought , and I didn’t believe in any supernatural or anything of the sort , super non-believer, so we went to the Holiday Inn where we were staying. Before going to bed I was skimming the book , and it was really weird I didn’t understand anything. I was like this is pretty strange, it has pages describing other worlds and incantations and stuff like that and weird simbols to put in your wall to open gates to take you to strange worlds. There was a lot of text in the book and every other page a symbol and instruccions, but everything in the book was not user friendly at all, it seemed it was written for the experienced satanist or satanic gate traveler.

Eventually we went to sleep and in the middle of the night I wake up to go to the bathroom. I enter the bathroom of the Holiday in and as soon as I close the door behind me, the panel lights above the sink start flickering violently and in that moment and this will be hard to describe but I will give it my best shot , I felt THE universe of evil conciousness, it was like everything that is evil and only that which is pure evil , so evil that it was completely abstract, pure black concentrate of evil and a whole universe of it, with a single conciousness/mind, it was focusing all of its evil on me, and letting me know without saying anything, “yes, this is happening right now” and this whole universe of evil conciousness was focusing laser pointed at me, all this while the lights were flickering violently. I was completely paralyzed , 100%, I just fell down on my butt with my back against the door with my body completely paralized of fear just 100% frozen with stark fear and terror, the amount of fear I felt is beyond what you can imagine, and take into consideration I have been in situations where my brother was about to die infront of me and I always deal with really intense dangerous situations very calmly, I am not the type of person that s**** himself when he goes to see a scary movie, just tatke that into consideration, this was 100% traumatizing. I didn’t even believe paranormal things existed, and then suddenly this happened so I was take by surpise to say the least.

Anyway, eventually it was over, I have no idea how long it lasted. It felt like 20 seconds, but it could have been half a second. I stand up and I go outside the bathroom, and for some reason I felt the need to look inside the book, I don’t know why I thought I might find something there to help me, I didn’t know what to do. I get the book and when I open it, the book was completely different. The cover was the same but now there were no text at all, not even page numbers, there were only 1 big symbol per page , the symbol centered in the middle but taking up 75% of the space of the page , it was somewhat like this but not Chinese at all,[...] it didn’t look like a letter , it looked more like a symbol of something ancient, I was really afraid, obviously,suprised how this was actually happening in real life, after i skimmed through the book to find that the whole book was just the symbols and nothing else the ink of the letters started to drop down the page, I know that sounds like a movie or something but it actually happened, so I closed the book and I remember looking at the bottom of the closed book and the ink was starting to cover the whole bottom of the closed book.

The next instant I wake up. It was amazing because what had just happened was not a dream, it was 100% real life. Normally when you dream you are in another place or the room is different or stuff like that, I know my dreams, and this wasn’t a dream. Anyway , as soon as I wake up I completely brainwashed myself into thinking it was just a dream and that it wasn’t real, but I only did it to be able to cope with the situation. Next morning I threw the book to the trash can and I put the whole event in the back of my mind, I didn’t think of it at all, I completely blocked it.

It was not until a year later more or less maybe a bit more that I looked back and went over the experience, I told my friends and my brothers about it and they all were super intrigued with the story, especially one of my friends and one of my brothers, they looked online for this book and never could find it , they would find other versions. Btw this all happened like 8 years ago. I was in 9th grade I think. Just two years ago my brother found this book here on ebay , this exact copy which was the one that I bought, and he looked inside the book and read the introduccion and found that it said this, “Bizarre occurrences and humorous coincidences aside for the moment, the NECRONOMICON has caused changed in the consciousness of those people most intimately involved with it, as well as many strangers who simply bought the book through the mail or at the bookstore. Judging by the letters we have received in the last two years, these changes have been startling.”

When he read that to me, it just put the cherry on the cake and validated my whole experience as something 100% real. Wheather it was a dream or not it doesn’t matter. It was the worst night of my life and nothing like that had ever happened to me or has happened since. If you think this was just a bad dream, I can assure you it was not, there is no way to describe the whole experience in its entirety unless you lived it , and I lived it and can tell you it wasn’t “just a dream”, trust me

After this event I decided I was never ever ever going to play around with the occult. I used to be the typical skeptic and after this I realized that there is definitely something behind the curtains we can’t see, but that is as real as the screen you are looking at right now.”

Warlock Asylum & Rafael Barrio Retire from the Necronomicon Tradition After Legally Establishing The Art of Ninzuwu

Warlock Asylum & Rafael Barrio have legally established the Art of Ninzuwu.

Warlock Asylum & Rafael Barrio have legally established the Art of Ninzuwu.

Peace and Blessings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page. This is a haven of love and light for those who are in pursuit of, and initiated into the Necronomicon Gnosis. Make yourself at home and do not hesitate to share your thoughts by posting a comment. Have a great day.

Well this has certainly been a busy week for the blog page. This is not an easy announcement to make, but it does have some bright aspects. I’ll just say it. The founder of the Papers in the Attic blog page Warlock Asylum has retired from the Necronomicon Tradition. In turn, Nightcaller (Dumu Abzu-a) and myself (Simon Magus) will now be the lead administrators of the Papers in the Attic blog page and the Necronomicon Forum. Warlock Asylum will still be present, but will no longer be involved in any public activities in regards to the Necronomicon Tradition, though he may still teach in private. The same applies for Rafael Barrio.

Warlock Asylum, along with Rafael Barrio, have legally established the Art of Ninzuwu. I would like to congratulate him and Rafael for having laid down the foundation for such a fine work. Both parties thought that Necronomicon Tradition and the Art of Ninzuwu are two different currents that should not be mixed. So as not to create any confusion, we all agreed that it was time to part ways. But the two “clans” are both supportive of each other and still family with a shared experience and no hidden animosity.  Those who are interested in, have questions about the Art of Ninzuwu, please visit the Art of Ninzuwu website and blog page:

Art of Ninzuwu Blog Page

Art of Ninzuwu wesbite & forum

From this point forward the Papers in the Attic blog page will deal exclusively with the Necronomicon Gnosis and Sumerian Mysticism. Many of our regular readers may know of Nightcaller’s work as he has written many articles for the blog page.

Papers in the Attic would like to wish Warlock Asylum and Rafael Barrio all the best on their spiritual journey. For some reason I have a feeling that it won’t the last we hear from Warlock Asylum. Good Luck!

Working Through Pain

Will Makalesi and SirisKing Apologize for Making the Erroneous Necronomicon Video?

Is the Occult World's favorite couple heading down the wrong road?

Is the Occult World’s favorite couple heading down the wrong road?

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page.  If the this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and share some of your insight by posting a comment. Stay blessed.

I hope everyone is doing well. Recently, the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt of the occult world, Makelesi and SirisKing posted another video about the Simon Necronomicon system. First, I would like to say that while Makelsi and SirisKing seem to be sincere in what they are saying, there video about the Simon Necronomicon is a great injustice, not only to practitioners of the tome, but the occult world overall. There are a few points that I agree with SirisKing about, after all we are blood-related. However, I thought I would take a bit of time to point on some errors in the video.

1. One of the things that my cousin SirisKing and Makelesi said was that the necronomicon system wasn’t useful because ot its association with the qliphoth. It is true that the initiatory workings of the Simon Necronomicon are qliphotic in nature. The purpose of the qliphotic initiation is a necessary step while walking on the path of immortality. In the book Spiritism and the Cult of the Dead in Antiquity by Lewis Bayles Paton,says:

“The great gods whom men loved and adored were gods of the upper world and of the living; their sway did not extend into the dark abodes of the dead…When death came it was a sign that their favor was withdrawn, or that they were unable to help against the powers of darkness. The disembodied spirit passed out of their jurisdiction into that of divinities with whom in life it had established no friendly relations.”

In the tradition of the Greater Mysteries, even in ancient times, it was known that the sky gods didn’t have the power of resurrection, but the cthonic gods did. We see this pattern repeated even in modern forms of religion. For example, in Christianity Yahweh didn’t promise resurrection. It wasn’t until Jesus died and visited the netherworld that we see a resurrection hope implemented. Even with the prophets who were said to before resurrections before and after the so-called existence of Jesus, the too were surrounded by netherworld imagery of a raven and performed such with someone related to a widow. Gerald Massey, in the book entitled, Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World, says:

“In various legends the secret of this water of life that wells up in the subterranean region is jealously guarded by dragons, crocodiles,, or other monsters of the deep. In the Chaldean versions the seven anunaki or spirits of earth..”

So the qliphotic tree has to be encountered if one is on the path of immortality. This is symbolized today in some religions by the act of baptism. The idea of going underneath water and rising up out of it as a symbol of dedication and salvations is all based on Ishtar’s Descent into the Netherworld. The article, Ancient Art of Gate-Walking, covers this subject in detail. You say that you are using magic to become attuned to the world of nature, then know to that the Sun and Moon visit the Netherworld everyday in every tradition of ancient mythology. It’s a part of initiation.

 2. My cousin SirisKing made another error in this video. He makes the claim that Enochian and Necronomicon systems are incomplete. No they’re not! This is what written in the Simon Necronmicon’s introduction:

“These were the sorcerer’s handbooks, and generally not meant as textbooks or encyclopedias of ceremonial magick. In other words, the sorcerer or magician is supposed to be in possession of the requisite knowledge and training with which to carry out a complex magickal ritual, just as a cook is expected to be able to master the scrambling of eggs before he conjures an “eggs Benedict”; the grimoires, or Black Books, were simply variations on a theme, like cookbooks, different records of what previous magicians had done, the spirits they had contacted, and the successes they had. The magicians who now read these works are expected to be able to select the wheat from the chaff, in much the same fashion as an alchemist discerning the deliberate errors in a treatise on his subject….Therefore it was (and is) insanity for the tyro to pick up a work on ceremonial Magick like the Lesser Key of Solomon to practise conjurations. It would also be folly to pick up Crowley’s Magick in Theory and Practise with the same intention. Both books are definitely not for beginners, a point which cannot be made too often. Unfortunately, perhaps, the dread NECRONOMICON falls into this category.”

The whole idea, which was mentioned by Kenneth Grant in the Nightside of Eden, is that the purpose of working qlipoth is not done to exclude the traditional kabbalah, but to gain a full initiation and full understanding of the Tree of Life. I will agree with SirisKing that it is not a book for the curious. It’s purpose primarily is initiatory, but that in itself doesn’t make it an incomplete system. The Simon Necronomicon is based on the Sumerian tradition and much information is available in print for the Initiate to gain a full scope of this paradigm. Initiation itself grants one access to unseen guides that are more knowledgeable than those living in the world of men. If you are not initiated into the Necronomicon current, you won’t appreciate this part of the process.

3. Another error that is made in this video is the assumption that these gods are in prison or what have you. This is the reasoning of dabblers and is also covered in the article The Ancient Art of Gate-Walking. Why was there a dove present at Jesus’ baptism? The dove is a symbol of Ishtar. Why do Muslims circle around the “black stone” while reading verses from the Qu’ran? When the four-sided black cube was a symbol of the god “El” the sun behind the Sun, who corresponds to the Necronomicon deity Adar. Why in Santeria are we told that Jehovah has 99 names? In Islam Allah has 99 names? Guess what? In the Simon Necronomicon, we have the numbers that the Chaldeans assigned to each of the Seven great gods. Nanna is 30. Nebo is 12. Ishtar is 15. Shammash is 20. Nergal is 8. Marduk is 10. Adar is 4. 30 + 12 + 15 + 20 + 8 + 10 + 4 = 99. So really are the Sumerian gods in prison when ever religion that exists today is using their science. Guess what? In Ifa there is a legend that Oshun’s dress was once white. But she constantly had to wash it and over time it became yellow. Her children were taken away due to her prostitution. That is about the fate of Ishtar.

4. Another mistake my cousin SirisKing makes in the video is say ing that he works with the Djinn as if that is not relative to the Necronomicon Gnosis. Lovecraft said that the original name for the Necronomicon was Al-Azif, meaning the “howling of the Djinn.” Thee Islamic tradition of Sufism is based on ancient Babylonian priesthoods. This article gets into that a bit more.

It the video SirisKing say that few people pursue “High Magick” because it takes years to develop. Yet he fails to mention that the Simon Necronomicon initiation takes about a year and then one can practice. The Simon Necronomicon states that the deities in the tome are not to be called upon until one has been initiated into that sphere. What usually happens to people who do not understand the process is that they will remain in the Netherworld and begin to rot away, or use the tome without initiation and upset the process. I am posting the video below, but we do expect a full apology. Im not going to get into the fact that Amadi’s comment was removed after a few days and my comment was never approved for posting. Loving the other world are we.

Answering Amadi’s Questions Concerning the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous posts and share some of your insights and experiences.

Well, I had a great vacation and got a chance to visit some of the world’s prominent power-spots. I will be posting my experiences shortly. However, I wanted to take a second to answer a comment that was posted recently concerning the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. My apologies for not answering sooner. I was away on vacation. Here is what Amadi posted:

“I’ve never heard of the Sixty Four Letters of Genghis Khan [?].

I am wondering what this has to do with Necronomicon Mysteries? (This is what it says in the title of the page).

 Whenever I do a google search on “Ninzuwu”, I am returned only with:”Sanzuwu”, a three legged crow in Chinese mythology. In Shinto, it is known as Yatagarasu, and this being appears as a three legged crow in Kojiki.

 Yi Jing is credited to Fu Xi and copies have been found in tombs located in what we now know as China.

 The Mawangdui Silk Texts has been found in Changsha, Hunan.

Black Dragon Society has absolutely *nothing* to do with the Necronomicon.

When I do a google search on some of the gods, such as Johuta, I am thinking that perhaps this is really Jakuta or another name for the Yoruba god, Shango?

 There is nothing wrong with questioning, I just want to know where exactly are you getting this information from? It looks to me on the outside you are putting out grimoires just for the sake of putting them out.

 The Urilia Language becomes Asaru Language, which in turn becomes the Vasuh language. The history behind this book changes and none of it is actually solid. Now you are saying that the Art of Ninzuwu is a form of Yi Jing sorcery?”

I thought it would be good to examine some of the points posed by Amadi. However, it should be noted that our forum page is the place to discuss such things in detail, and due to such, comments to this post will remain closed.

“I’ve never heard of the Sixty Four Letters of Genghis Khan [?]. I am wondering what this has to do with Necronomicon Mysteries? (This is what it says in the title of the page).”

 

Of course, the Sixty-Four Letters of Genghis Khan is not known publicly. It’s an esoteric treatise for Yi Jing sorcery, and while the use of this term may appear to be “new” upon the said book’s release, however, several members, along with myself, have been using such. When the Ivory Tablets of the Crow was released publicly, there was also a private module course that wasn’t, and isn’t, discussed in public or for public review.

In my personal opinion, it has nothing to do with the “Necronomicon Mysteries” as how they are presented publicly at this time, but there is a connection. I find it interesting that many of the discoveries among those who have walked the Gates are taken quite skeptically. Meanwhile, a religion and language is being constructed presently by some in the academic field that has no foundation and its basis was partly used by the Nazi Party in its justification of racism and etc. Today, reference books and etyomological resources are crediting theProto-Indo-European language and religion, as the source of civilization. In some ways, the Proto-Indo-European theory is even crouching in on Sumerian history, which in turn affects the Necronomicon Mysteries, But, why aren’t practitioners of the “Necronomicon Mysteries” addressing letters to such academic institutions in rebuttal to such? I am not questioning the sincerity of your questions Amadi, but pose such to illustrate a movement that many aren’t aware of. Btw, it’s good hearing from both you and Alric and I hope all is well in your studies. Hopefully, all practitioners of the Necronomicon Tradition and come together on the basis of the information that is about to be presented.

Many practitioners of magic are not aware of the one of the goals of the initiate of such “mysteries.” This means the preservation of the work and culture at hand. What is not known is that this “struggle” has been going on since the First World War. Peter Levenda gave nice presentation concerning such in a recent YouTube video entitled “Secret Space Program.” http://youtu.be/Cj2qrl6Q2rk In the video, Levenda talks about how “thousands” of Nazi scientists were brought over to the United States after WWII. Since this time we have seen our education system change, evolution is being taught in schools, and now reference books are listing the “Proto-Indo-European” language as a source of words and religion.  For those who are able to observe what is going on behind the veil, will agree that these things are the result of a hidden agenda.

My reason for mentioning this has a lot to do with a hidden agenda by a group of occultists, who are trying to preserve the Proto-Afro-Asiatic culture that existed in times of remote antiquity. This is examined more thoroughly in the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. It is also discussed in the works of Kenneth Grant. In other words, the Cults of the Shadow, as described by Grant in the said work, broke off from one central esoteric society. In Cults of the Shadow, Grant describes such the remnant of such a legacy in the infamous Cult of Ku. According to Kenneth Grant, the occult artist Austin Osman Spare claimed to have witnessed a ‘cult of ku‘ ceremony during the 1920s in South London. Interestingly, the said magicians mentioned in the introduction of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, when researched, reveal also a struggle to maintain what is left of the Proto-Afro-Asiatic paradigm. In Cults of the Shadow it states:

 “Sorcery and witchcraft are the degenerate offspring of occult traditions coeval with those described in the second chapter. The popular conception of witchcraft, shaped by the anti-Christian manifestations that occurred in the Middle Ages is so distorted and so inadequate that to try and interpret the symbols of its mysteries, perverted and debased as they are, without reference to the vastly ancient systems from which they derive is like mistaking the tip of an iceberg for its total mass.

 It has been suggested by some authorities that the original witches sprang from a race of Mongol origin of which the Lapps are the sole surviving remnants. This may or may not be so, but these ‘mongols’ were not human. They were degenerate survivals of a pre-human phase of our planet’s history generally- though mistakenly- classified as Atlantean. The characteristic that distinguished them from the others of their kind was the ability to project consciousness into animal forms, and the power they possessed of reifying thought-forms. The bestiaries of all the races of the earth are littered with the results of their sorceries.”

Further evidence of this Proto-Afro-Asiatic culture is presented in Kenneth Grant’s Hecate Fountain:

 “In the ancient cult of the ku there are unmistakable signs of intercourse occurring in remote parts of China and Central Asia between extraterrestrials and Adepts of the Vajrayana, or Cult of the Thunder-dragon. That Crowley had magical affinities with such a Cult is evidenced by his curious relationship with Lam, the mysterious Lama of Leng…”

If you do not know what the “Lama of Leng” is, then you will not understand why the term “ghouls” appear in the Simon Necronomicon. Regardless of such we see that even Kenneth Grant points to an ancient Asiatic cult whose influence he believed was the guiding force behind Crowley’s work. So in answer to your question, no the Art of Ninzuwu is not connected to the Necronomicon Mysteries on the surface, but when you understand the Art, you can see the connections.

Amadi: “Whenever I do a google search on “Ninzuwu”, I am returned only with:”Sanzuwu”, a three legged crow in Chinese mythology. In Shinto, it is known as Yatagarasu, and this being appears as a three legged crow in Kojiki.”

Similar to many of the terms appearing in the Simon Necronomicon, many of the terms in the Art of Ninzuwu are phrases. The meaning of the term, or phrase, “Ninzuwu” has a lot to do with ancestor worship. But the answer, in regards to such, can be found when the term is broken down into three parts.

Amadi: “Yi Jing is credited to Fu Xi and copies have been found in tombs located in what we now know as China. The Mawangdui Silk Texts has been found in Changsha, Hunan.”

 I agree. In the Art of Ninzuwu the Yi Jing is also accredited to Fu Xi. However, Fu Xi claimed to receive the bagua, proper, from a divine source. What this divine may be is thoroughly examined in the Yi Jing Apocrypha. No one is denying Fu Xi’s legacy in regard to the Yi Jing.

 Amadi: “Black Dragon Society has absolutely nothing* to do with the Necronomicon.”

 I have access to a lot of Black Dragon Society’s information and we are registering such as a legal entity. Aside from its political aspirations, it was heavily involved in the occult. We will continue the occult agenda of this Society while working in the framework of the law.

Amadi: “When I do a google search on some of the gods, such as Johuta, I am thinking that perhaps this is really Jakuta or another name for the Yoruba god, Shango?”

 The answer to your question was covered in the August 9th 2013 article, entitled New Historical Evidence That Supports The Ivory Tablets of the Crow Forces Scholars To Take A Second look at the History of Sumeria New Historical Evidence That Supports The Ivory Tablets of the Crow:

“The term Johuta is composed of two Sanskrit terms, huta, meaning invocation and the prefixJo, derives from the Sankrit Jai, or Jah, meaning victory, but also refers to, Iao. Madame Blavatsky wrote the following under the topic, The Christian Scheme;

“Iao is certainly a title of the Supreme Being, and belongs partially to the Ineffable Name; but it neither originated with nor was it the sole property of the Jews… In an old religion of the Chaldeans, whose remains are to be found amongst the Neo-platonists, the highest divinity enthroned above the seven heavens, representing the Spiritual Light-Principle (nous)(1) and also conceived as Demiurgus,(2) was called Iao, who was, like the Hebrew Yâho, mysterious and unmentionable, and whose name was communicated to the initiated. The Phœnicians had a Supreme God whose name was trilateral and secret, and he was Iao.”… In Sanskrit we have Jah and Jaya, or Jaa and Ja-ga, and this throws light on the origin of the famous festival of the car of Jaganath, commonly called Jaggarnâth. Javhe means “he who is,” and Dr. Spiegal traces even the Persian name of God, “Ahura,” to the root ah, which in Sanskrit is pronounced as, to breathe, and asu, became, therefore, in time, synonymous with “Spirit.” Rawlinson strongly supports the opinion of an Aryan or Vedic influence on the early Babylonian mythology. ….IAO, in such a case, would — etymologically considered — mean the “Breath of Life,” generated or springing forth between an upright male and an egg-shaped female principle of nature; for, in Sanskrit, as means “to be,” “to live or exist”; and originally it meant “to breathe.” “From it,” says Max Müller, “in its original sense of breathing, the Hindus formed ‘asu,’ breath, and ‘asura,’ the name of God, whether it meant the breathing one or the giver of breath.” “

Based on the information sited above, Johuta means, invocation of Iao, or invocation of the spirit of life

Amadi: There is nothing wrong with questioning, I just want to know where exactly are you getting this information from? It looks to me on the outside you are putting out grimoires just for the sake of putting them out.

Actually, in the true sense of the term “grimoire,” the Art of Ninzuwu, composed of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow and the Yi Jing Apocrypha, is the only “grimoire” that was released on my end. The Atlantean Necronomicon is a group of essays and a hint at understanding the Urilia text. The Dark Knight of Nyarlathotep is a social commentary. Brooklyn Geisha is listed as a biography. The Oracle of Enheduanna is a magical text, but more spiritual hint, somewhat religious.

This information I am getting from what my first mentor gave me, who was truly a man of fire. I’ve had his notes and some things that are not in print for quite some time, over ten years to be exact. However, the understanding of such could not be gathered if I didn’t practice certain things first. I am sure you can understand this as your mentors, may have shared some useful tools in helping you shape your perspective. Yet, I still wondered why aren’t others asked these same question? For example, Kenneth Grant was originally initiated into Thelema. Later, he developed the Typhonian Order, which was not a “pure” form of Thelemic practice. He also developed his own system of gematria, which was very controversial to such. Yet, I can use him as a reference, and due to such the statement is unquestioned. The same goes for Crowley.

Crowley was initially a member of the Golden Dawn. Later, after receiving the Book of the Law, he developed Thelema. Simon writes the following:

“Crowley’s Magick was a testimony of what he has found in his researches into the forbidden, and forgotten, lore of past civilisations and ancient times. His Book of the Law was written in Cairo in the Spring of 1904, when he believed himself to be in contact with a praeter-human intelligence called Aiwass who dictated to him the Three Chapters that make up the Book. It had influenced him more than any other, and the remainder of his life was spent trying to understand it fully, and to make its message known to the world. It, too, contains the formulae necessary to summon the invisible into visibility, and the secrets of transformations are hidden within its pages, but this is Crowley’s own NECRONOMICON, received in the Middle East in the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh, and therein is writ not only the beauty, but the Beast that yet awaits mankind.”

I believe that every magician should be given the same opportunity as Crowley and Grant to pursue their place in the dream.

Amadi: The Urilia Language becomes Asaru Language, which in turn becomes the Vasuh language. The history behind this book changes and none of it is actually solid. Now you are saying that the Art of Ninzuwu is a form of Yi Jing sorcery?”

Yes, the Art of Ninzuwu is a form of Yi Jing sorcery. Actually, a lot of passages in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow refer to the Yi Jing. This is also covered in the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. Interestingly, the terms Urilia, Asaru, and Vasuh are related in meaning.

When the Ivory Tablets of the Crow was first published, the Yi Jing Apocrypha was being prepared for publishing and the system explored. Really, the Ivory tablets of the Crow and the Yi Jing Apocrypha are one and the same book, but made into two for reasons of study.

Thank you for your questions Amadi. This will conclude my answer to such. For those interested in the Art of Ninzuwu, you can email me or contact us at the Art of Ninzuwu blog page.

The End of an Era: The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan

The End of an Era!

The End of an Era!

I would like to wish everyone a warm beautiful day! If this is your first time here, please feel free to take the time out to share some of your insights and experiences. Also check our menu appearing on the right column for additional articles and information. Today, we have seen the end of an era. “Messiah’el Bey of Warlock Asylum fame released his last writing on mysticism this evening. The work will soon by available on Amazon before the week is out, but readers can get advanced copies on Createspace. Some say it is his best esoteric work as yet. We would like to congratulate him on this accomplishment. It’s not an everyday thing for someone to publish a version of the Yi Jing.”

Copies will be available on Amazon before the week’s end. Advanced copies can be obtained at the following link:

https://www.createspace.com/4446578

The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan is a working companion of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow and a rare translation of the I Ching (Book of Changes). Originally, it was thought to be circulated and developed by members of Black Dragon Society in their investigation of the Art of Ninzuwu (Yi Jing Sorcery).The Art of Ninzuwu is a very powerful transformational process and is said to be one of the oldest forms of magical practice in the world.

The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan also reveals the historical authenticity of what appears in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow and how it is applied to Yi Jing divination. The book gives a thorough, yet mystical, explanation of each of the sixty-four hexagrams and compares them to the Sixty-Four Letters of Genghis Khan. The book also explores the spiritual side of Genghis Khan and his connections to shamanism. Formulas for accessing the vibration of the hexagrams are given, as well as, advanced initiatory practices of Ninzuwu.

The book also examines the Yi Jing’s relationship to ancient Sumerian spirituality and reveals the location of the legendary land of Dilmun, and the possibility of a Yi Jing originating in ancient Mesopotamia. The also book reveals the origin of the Sumerians and where they migrated to after leaving Mesopotamia. Many people who presently use the I Ching in their lives will find this text truly rewarding. Others will now be able to validate the historical authenticity of what appears in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow. People, regardless of their political, racial, religious, and spiritual background can gain some wisdom from the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan.

Another theme that is prominent in the text is the Yi Ching’s relationship to Shinto and the fundamental creed of the Black Dragon Society. The Appendix includes excerpts from a speech given prominent member of the Black Dragon Society and his views on Dr. Mikao Usui.

Caution: The Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan is also an advanced initiatory path. The Hexagrams are arranged in the order of their initiatory steps. The editor suggests that the book be read first in its entirety before practice.

We wish Warlock the best in all his endeavors!

Recent Updates: Will Warlock Asylum Be Forced to Retire in the Light of New Information?

Is it only the beginning of the return to the end for the Dark Knight (Warlock Asylum)

Is it only the beginning of the return to the end for the Dark Knight (Warlock Asylum)

Greetings! I would like to wish everyone a beautiful day. Thank you very much for stopping by the Papers in the Attic blog page. It is refreshing to engage in a spiritual exchange with all our readers, please feel free to share some of your thoughts as well.

Recently, I had the pleasure of talking with Warlock Asylum. He was in very good spirits and there is some exciting news in store, as his upcoming release of a text that he has been working on translating for the past three years, may change the occult world as we know it. Unfortunately, it may be his last release in quite some time.

I am not certain about the topic of the work, but I am aware that there is some concern, on the part of Warlock Asylum and other staff members, over what this information may mean, not only for the Necronomicon Tradition, but the Western Occult Tradition as we know it. The good news in all of this is that the work will be available for view in a few day and it is said to be a bit more dynamic than the Atlantean Necronomicon in its approach.  We will visit this topic again upon the release of this new information.

In the world of good news, over the next few days, announcements will be made about several inductees into the Necronomicon Hall of Fame. In this case, I have seen the list, though a bit controversial, it is well-deserved. Arrangements are also being made to organize a legal entity in respects to our Tradition.

Well, that’s all for now. I would like to thank our readers and members for their continued support, as we move ever forward on the path of enlightenment.

Love and Light,

Simon Magus

Interview With Mystic Gregory Peters On Crowley, Grant, and His Work With Legend Phyllis Seckler

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and share some of your thoughts and insights by posting a comment. Stay blessed.
The legendary and insightful Gregory Peters  meets up with the Dark Knight

The legendary and insightful Gregory Peters meets up with the Dark Knight

Recently, I had the honor to talk with Gregory Peters. He is a Thelemite, a devotee of the Great Goddess, and has been a student of Eastern and Western systems of attainment for over 20 years, holding various offices in western esoteric groups, and is an initiated tantrik in Hindu and Buddhist lineages. I ould like to take this time to welcome Mr. Peters to the Papers in the Attic family. How are you?

Gregory Peters: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Thank you for asking to discuss the Work. It is always a pleasure to share in our ongoing research and expeditions into the vast realms of consciousness. Below are your questions and my responses. If anything requires more clarification or details, please let me know.

 

Warlock Asylum: It is an honor indeed to be able to talk with you and gather a few insights along this shared path. However for our readers who may not be familiar with your person, how would describe yourself?

 

Gregory Peters: As with any individual, I am a multi-faceted and complex person. I have a brief bio at http://newaeontantra.com/about/ that will help to set the “tone.” At the simplest, I am an explorer. This manifests throughout my life’s journey in my love of travel and trekking, as well as the deep exploration of western and eastern occultism, tantra and mysticism.

 

Warlock Asylum: How did you get involved in the occult arts, specifically Thelema?

 

Gregory Peters: It all started in childhood with an unusual interest in all things occult, paranormal and otherworldly themed. An avid reader, I early on discovered the writings of H.P. Lovecraft and voraciously read through his work, as well as getting my first Simon Necronomicon at an early age (never mind that I was so terrified of inadvertently opening the gates after reading it that I tore it to pieces and burned the scraps into ash… that is another story in itself). In my teenage years this interest had moved into Buddhism and eastern mysticism, then finally into paganism and the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The study of Golden Dawn led to the writings of Israel Regardie, Robert Anton Wilson and naturally to Regardie’s study of Aleister Crowley in The Eye in the Triangle. I followed up with reading Crowley, obtaining anything I could find by him. Crowley’s writings, and in particular Liber AL vel Legis, sparked a deep interest that would end up directing the course of my life, leading me eventually to the work of Kenneth Grant, Hindu and Buddhist tantra, Advaita, Bertiaux, and more.

 

Warlock Asylum: It’s good to see that you are still active. In your opinion, What changes have you seen since getting involved in the occult world?

 

Gregory Peters:The growth of the Internet has without a doubt had a huge influence. So much that used to be arcane, secret or somewhat “mysterious” is now blasted all over the web. Almost every organization has a web presence now.  You used to have to actually write carefully thought out letters of introduction to the addresses you found in rather hard to find books, and hope to get a response. These days, people more often than not look up a contact address on the web, dash off a quick email to a group that catches their interest, and go back to browsing Facebook! The inundation of information and the worldwide connectivity afforded from near instantaneous electronic communications has shifted the face of the occult scene tremendously. Rather than go through the effort of letter writing and getting to know potential contacts in the occult, these days people more often than not are able to sit at home (or in Starbucks) and ask several groups to initiate them remotely.

I have found that many people now are so used to having near immediate response via email, web searches, and text messaging (to name a few), that they are not willing to put in the time and effort to actually read a book in-depth, or sit for meditation or ritual for extended periods of time. There is always a variety of experiences of course, but it seemed before the wide adaptation of the internet there was much more emphasis on putting in the time with both solitary and group work.

Another change seems to be a decided lack of creativity in the occult world. It is almost as if the status quo of the occult has become somewhat ossified, repeating the same traditions over and over with little new insight or innovation. While there is certainly an important need to protect and preserve that which has come before (the idea of occult lineages), the Work has to move forward and advance into new realizations and territories.

Some of the more cutting edge occultists are championing this pioneer approach; for example, the very unique and threshold crossing work of Kenneth Grant, Austin Osman Spare and their successors, and the creative talent coming out of the Voudon Gnosis traditions of Bertiaux are highlights of truly unique and artistic creative occultism.

 

Warlock Asylum: When people hear the name Aleister Crowley, images of a controversial, but skilled magician appears in the minds of the uninitiated. What is your opinion of Crowley and the legacy he left?

 

Gregory Peters: Crowley was the herald of New Aeon of Thelema and the philosophy of Do what thou wilt. His life work was a truly brilliant synthesis of spiritual technology from both the Western occult traditions and the yoga and mysticism of the East. The reception of Liber AL vel Legis (the Book of the Law) was a milestone in the history of humanity, paving the way for a new tradition based on an individual relationship with the Divine and the world.  His work inaugurated the New Aeon and laid a foundation for future generations to build upon and expand.

People that discard Crowley because of his less than savory history in the press and his many human failings are falling prey to the “Demon Crowley” and missing the diamonds hidden in the rough. I tend to think that Crowley had many layers to his personality, and each served a specific purpose. The “Demon Crowley” is a type of ordeal, a proving ground. Pass through that Pylon, and you will see the incredible value in his work. People may not like the man or what he did on a personal level, but that should not be a bar to realizing the intrinsic value of his work and the importance of such a liberating and empowering philosophy as Thelema.

In addition to the reception of Liber AL, Crowley’s work in revitalizing the Tarot with the artist Lady Freda Harris was a remarkable achievement. The Tarot is a visual compendium of the Universe, composed of living talismanic art. Armed with only the Tarot, one has the keys necessary to unlock and experience the complete path of gnostic attainment.

Crowley is a starting point. His work and legacy needs to be preserved and studied, as a great master. From this solid foundation, we expand and build fresh avenues of exploration and attainment. This is how art works, and how the creative impulse is nurtured and grown, opening to new vistas and regions undreamed of. The gnostic revelation is not static, but rather ever dynamic, a dance of ecstatic energies in eternity.

 

Warlock Asylum: I am sure that you will agree that over the last ten years interest in non-traditional forms of religion and magic as a whole has grown rapidly. Some say that this is a good thing, since they can live a more comfortable lifestyle, one in conjunction with their mystical practice. Others claim that while things are more open than they used to be, the occult arena is now filled with armchair magicians. What is your opinion in this regard, being that you have been involved with the art for quite some time?

 

Gregory Peters: With the diffusion of the occult into mundane life there is certainly a more open dialogue, and the peripheral students and seekers have their time cut out for them as there is a seeming endless supply of websites, books, seminars, groups and more to keep them occupied. Naturally this means there is a larger body of seekers and dilettantes than there are serious, practicing adepts and magicians. I think however this has always been the case; it is just that now there is more of everything and everyone, and we are all connected. As has always been, the serious practitioners are hidden, sometimes in plain sight, sometimes not, and engaged in their Work.

 

Warlock Asylum: It must have been a great honor to work with the late Phyllis Seckler, also known as Soror Meral! How was that experience for you? Can you tell us a little something about the remarkable Phyllis Seckler?

 

Gregory Peters: I am truly grateful to have studied under Phyllis and to have counted her as a dear friend. I met Phyllis when I was 21 years old and became her student the same day, working directly under her until her death. She was… remarkable. Sharp mind, quick wit, gentle yet sparkling eyes, and a laugh that would cut through all of your pretense and ego. She was a truly great Adept, although she would never admit it as such. Any discussion of grades would be met with a quick “that doesn’t matter! do the Work!”

Spending afternoons with Phyllis in Oroville were magical, inspiring times. This really taught me the value of teacher-student relationships, as the time spent in personal one on one and seminar type settings was instrumental in teaching me the Work. Being in the presence of ones teacher conveys a certain subtle wisdom in all that one does. Something as simple as putting some water to boil in the kitchen while listening to her discuss the True Will or various personalities in the Thelemic world conveyed far more energetically than could ever be learned from just reading a book. I think this is one of the reasons in the Eastern traditions the student would be so close to the guru, doing seemingly mundane tasks day after day with perhaps no overt instruction for months or years at a time. The teachings are alive and they are transmitted through life itself, by being in close, regular proximity to the teacher.

She always emphasized the vital importance of the Holy Books of Thelema. Phyllis would be able to quote from Liber ALby memory for any circumstance, any life event that would come up. She was a real embodiment of Thelema, living and expressing it with her every thought, word and deed. Soror Meral was the main inspiration behind the practice of reading the Holy Books that would evolve over the years into the Diamond Sapphire Gem of Radiant Light(http://newaeontantra.com/?s=diamond+sapphire) and the Ordo Sunyata Vajra (http://www.ordosv.org), which originally got started after she indicated that students were not studying the Thelemic Holy Books enough.

Working with her was a greatly inspiring and productive time. In addition to being completely orthodox in her A.’.A.’. training, she never suffered from any of the problems you often see with occult teachers: no ego trips, no attempts to control. Rather, she was encouraging, nurturing and empowering – helping her students to find their True Will and embody the Star that they are. Always, again and again, her emphasis would be on the Book of the Law and the True Will to handle every situation in life.

 

Warlock Asylum:  How did you get into writing? 

 

Gregory Peters: I seem to have had a natural predilection for writing since early childhood. I wrote my first “book” – a sequel to The Empire Strikes Back - with pencil and paper at the age of 10. This was followed with sequels to Halloween and some Dune inspired poetry in the next few years. Sadly, these are all lost now (unless they show up on eBay at some point!). Writing has always been an easy method of self expression for me.

 

Warlock Asylum: Are there any new projects coming for Gregory Peters that we can expect in the future?

 

Gregory Peters: I recently finished a new book, the Magickal Union of East and West (http://newaeontantra.com/2013/09/17/coming-in-july-2014/) due out from Llewlleyn in 2014. It will explore many of the themes and practices of New Aeon Tantra that I have been working with over the last decade or so. On a similar theme, quite a lot of development has been going on inside the Ordo Sunyata Vajra and its other orders that members will be able to engage with. The tantra of the Book of the Law continues to be the primary focus and drive in all of this Work.

On a personal level, my ongoing work with vamamarga lines of tantrik sadhana, as well as the deepening of work with the Typhonian Gnosis continues to expand. Where this will ultimately lead, and what new vistas will be experienced, are yet to be seen.

 

Warlock Asylum: There are always challenges in life and this is the beauty of the magical arts. Life can become your canvas. What challenges have you faced, if any, due to your pursuit of the magical and mystical arts?

 

Gregory Peters: Life is indeed the canvas for our arte magick. The dynamic interweaving of energy that are the variegated waves of life develop a rhythm that, seen over time, show the path of a Star in the cosmos.

I have found that this path has enhanced my life tremendously, and afforded me the experience of a worldview that truly has “no problems.” Whatever life brings, if one is seated firmly in the Truth of Self – the True Will – then ones course of action and point of view remain in the base of consciousness. This is the silent watcher, the Hidden God that is witness and experiencer of the entire cycle of life. From this point of view, whether experience is outwardly positive or negative, one is in a condition of equipoise at the foundation of being. A helpful exercise to reinforce this worldview is adapted from the Oath of the Abyss, wherein one views every experience of life as a direct dealing of the Divine with the individual self.

On a more mundane level, of course our daily interactions with the world have their ebb and flow, good days and bad days. I might have a cold that gets me physically down; I may get into an argument with a loved one; I may encounter any number of irritations. The key, I feel, is not to obsess over the transitory flow, but rather to again and again re-establish consciousness in the base. In this way, samsara and nirvana are truly experienced as one and the same. “All the sorrows are but as shadows, they pass and are done, but there is that which remains.” (Liber AL). When one lives from the center, there is a true freedom and fearlessness every moment, in every aspect of life. Every act is an act of Love, ultimately.

 

Warlock Asylum: What advice would you give to our readers and to those who are newly interested in the occult arts? Any final thoughts?

 

Gregory Peters: Whatever you choose, stick with it. Persevere! This path requires real work and real discipline. It is not a hobby, and not some fetish to play around with on weekends or when the fancy strikes. In order to achieve anything, you have to commit to yourself and maintain honesty and integrity in your work. Too often I have seen people get caught up in grades and recognition from others. None of that matters the least bit when Yama is at your doorstep. If you want real results; if you really want to Know and Fulfill your True Will, and taste the Unknown, you will have to work at it, daily, regularly, relentlessly. You will need to make such an impression on the Infinite, that it can not help but take notice and respond.

In the beginning, it is natural to search around different ideas and systems, perhaps move from one philosophy and group and practice to another. This is the Seeker stage, and a natural way to survey what is out there. Eventually, one has to settle down and choose one school or system to work with; this is how Adepthood is attained. Many of the western systems will take about 4 -5 years to go from beginner to the first stage of Adepthood, and you should be willing to commit to this in order to achieve a solid foundation. Traditional eastern tantrik paths may take even longer, depending on the lineage and guru one is working with.

Once a particular system is stabilized and the outer college is past (for example, when one achieves Adeptus Minor in a Golden Dawn based tradition), there is room to again explore other areas of study and mastery, but no longer with the virgin eyes and naiveté of a beginner, but rather the experience and solid foundation of an Adept. From this, true creativity and new developments may arise, when the inspiration and guidance of the Augoides takes hold and leads you on your journey.

Another piece of advice: always follow your gut (some may prefer to say “follow your heart.”). As trite as that may sound at first glance, there is a part of you that always knows what the “right” thing to do (or not do) is. It may be clouded by personality complexes, or societal and cultural norms, or any of a host of other blocks, but ultimately your intuition is always right, if you can hear it and follow it. This is the silent, almost hidden path, overgrown with conscious and unconscious obstructions, to your True Will. Follow that, and you will find the Heart of the Master.

 

Warlock Asylum: I would like to express my deepest thanks on behalf of the Papers in the Attic team and our subscribers for taking the time to answer a few questions. I must say this exchange has been an encouraging step on my journey. We wish you all the best!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It’s been a while since I last posted on this wonderful blog page, but tonight I am presenting a new piece of work, which is an upgraded and enhanced version of the exorcism BARRA EDINNAZU (as found in the simon Necronomicon). The seasoned exorcist will put this text to good use, as it exposes the Evil Ones in a wide variety of their vile forms.

Is the One-Thousand-And-One Moons Described by the Mad Arab Symbolic of Initiation?

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some our previous articles and share some of your insights and experiences by posting a comment. We wish you good luck in all your endeavors. Stay blessed!

Over the past few weeks we have received several questions from potential initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition, concerning the length of the Gate-Walking initiation and other topic pertaining to such. Our staff thought that it would be good to clarify some aspects of the Tradition that are often misunderstood by newcomers. We will present these as a question and answer discussion. Enjoy.

Is the One-Thousand-And-One Moons described by the Mad Arab symbolic of initiation?

This is a very interesting question often pondered by many who walk this path. In the First Testimony of the Mad Arab we read:

“THIS IS THE TESTIMONY of all that I have seen, and all that I have learned, in those years that I have possessed the Three Seals of MASSHU. I have seen One Thousand-and-One moons, and surely this is enough for the span of a man’s life, though it is said the Prophets lived much longer.”

The term “One Thousand-and-One moons” seems to be a metaphor describing the Mad Arab’s length of years since his/her discovering and initiation into the Necronomicon Tradition. We can determine such based on another passage found in the First Testimony:

“But now, after One Thousand-and-One moons of the journey, the Maskim nip at my heels, the Rabishu pull at my hair,”

From the passage cited we can see that the mad Arab counted his life from the beginning of his journey, from the time he held the Three Seals of Masshu. This means that on a stellar level our “birthday” changes from our date of physical birth to the day of our spiritual renewal when we first call the Watcher. The meaning of On Thousand-and-One moons will help us understand our journey spiritually, not only in the workings found in the Simon Necronomicon, but in life in general. The equation still remains the same.

If we were to calculate the amount of time One Thousand and One moons is in years, we can understand the strength of the Necronomicon tradition itself. There are thirteen moons in one year. 1,001 divided by 13 equals 77. This is one possibility. We will explain more on this later. However, it should be noted in the Supplementary Material To 777, appearing in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction, we find that from the Sphere of Kia to Anu, we have 11 spheres. This would mean that it takes seven years to pass each Gate. We will explain this shortly.

 

Table VII [A.C.]

Table XXV [S.]

0. . . . ANU (TIAMAT)
1. Sphere of the Primum Mobile ENLIL (ABSU)
2. Sphere of the Zodiac or Fixed Stars ENKI; LUMASHI (IGIGI)
3. Sphere of Saturn ADAR
4. Sphere of Jupiter MARDUK
5. Sphere of Mars NERGAL
6. Sphere of the Sun UTU
7. Sphere of Venus INANNA
8. Sphere of Mercury NEBO
9. Sphere of the Moon NANNA
10. Sphere of the Elements KIA

This seems to be the also suggested in the Simon Necronomicon text itself. In the Magan Text, we read about this in this symbolic passage:

“And to invoke her
The Red Water of Life
Need be split on a stone
The stone struck with a sword
That hath slain eleven men”

The other interpretation of the term “One Thousand-and-One moons” is that the term moon may refer to month, which is the case in some ancient writings. In this case, if were to take it that twelve months exist in one year, we would come up with the following calculation; 1,001 divided by 12 equals 84. It should be noted that the planet Uranus takes 84 years to orbit around the Sun once. Uranus remains in a sign for seven years before moving to the next zodiac sign. In either case, whether it is 77 years or 84 years, a change occurs in each seven-year period of the Gate-walker’s life. This is very interesting as the ancient Mesopotamians associated Uranus with Anu, and the Mad Arab calls upon DinGir Anu throughout the text. What does this all mean?

During the Gate-Walking initiation the energy-field of the Practitioner is changed and they become receptive to the same primal energies that were invoked in ancient Mesopotamia.  Life changes. It should be noted that the Gate-Walking initiation is performed in ritual with actual tools and etc. In any event, it is an internal transformation that takes place. Externally, our environment changes based on the energy we radiate. Once initiated, the Practitioner will notice that the Gates of Life, work in seven-year intervals. This means that the new-found initiate will remain in the Gate of Nanna for seven years, even if they have walked and re-walked the Gates of the Necronomicon. That is an internal process. The external process will still take seven years. Simon speaks of such in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction:

“Man’s power to alter the nature of his environment must develop simultaneously with his ability to master his inner environment, his own mind his psyche, soul, spirit…. Yet, he must remember that the occult powers that accompany magickal attainment are ornamental only, indications of obstacles overcome on the Path to Perfection, and are not to be sought after in themselves, for therein lies the truth Death.”

In an online article entitled Astrology - Astrology – The Days of the Week and Cycles of Seven by Chris Haycock, we read:

“In astrology all life goes round in cycles of seven. There is a period of seven times seven making up the first half century of an individual’s existence.”

Our initiation into the Necronomicon Current allows us a bit more insight into this process and understand the Gates of years spoken about by the Mad Arab and in astrology a bit clearer. We can begin to navigate through the Gates of Life more effectively after being initiated in the internal process, which imitates the stellar movements and its effect on nature alone. We are truly blessed!

Warlock Asylum Interviews The Mysterious Aqganon

Will Aqganon, a man of the mysterious, ever reveal his true identity?

Will Aqganon, a man of the mysterious, ever reveal his true identity?

Greetings! We would like to extend a warm welcome to our visitors of Papers in the Attic blog page, your resource for information surrounding the Simon Necronomicon mysteries and practitioners of Sumerian Spirituality today. We deeply appreciate your input and support, and look forward to hearing some of your insights and comments. There are no “big I-s” and “little you-s” here. We are brethren and sistereth of a unique Path. Let us rejoice in the opportunity and sacredness of the fact that we can now experience communion with the same energies of the Old Sumerian Faith. Have a great and productive day. Let those of us who are ignorant of this science, inquire about such, due to our examples while we walk upon this path. Stay blessed.

Usually, about once a week, I visit YouTube and search for recent posts made under the category “Necronomicon.” Fortunately, I got a chance to witness the growth of our Tradition and its many underlying themes. It is good to see others from different countries and etc, express their joy in life since making a personal goal to begin working with the Simon Necronomicon. During this YouTube search, I stumbled across a video entitled

Warlock Asylum: I found your recent video on YouTube very interesting and you touched on some very good points concerning the Simon Necronomicon. Some of our readers, however, may not be too familiar with your work, or person. In view of such, how would you like to introduce yourself?

Aqganon: I am an individual with a close connection to supernatural that is seeking divine knowledge through the occult. It is my goal to grow as a person, but also to teach others what I have learned. My real name is Jonah.

Warlock Asylum: How did you first learn about the Simon Necronomicon and what encouraged you to pursue this controversial field of occult practice a bit more seriously?

Aqganon: I discovered the Necronomicon through the lyrics of a song called “Lord of All Fevers and Plague” by Morbid Angel, which is in reference to Pazuzu as many know. The chorus is:

“IA! IA SAKKAKTH! IAK SAKKAKH! IA SHA XUL! / IA KINGU! IA KUTULU! IA AZBUL! IA AZBUA!”

Knowing they are an occult oriented band, I figured it had to do with a type of invocation, but I was clueless of the language that was being spoken. I did some research online and found that it was in a mysterious book referred to as the Necronomicon. I figured out that the band members used the book and got most of their musical inspiration from it. (Their guitar player, Trey Azagthoth, has been aware of discoveries that you have made in recent years regarding the Necronomicon since the 1980s.) I recall finding the grimoire at a local bookstore and feeling a powerful and raw surge of energy when I first held the book. I knew at that moment that the book was special. After buying and reading it, I started to experience a call much like Abdul Alhazred did.  I would often wake up from a deep sleep and hear multiple voices saying Kingu, Kutulu, Tiamat, and Pazuzu. However, none of it struck any fear in me. It drove me to learn and work with the rituals. Overall, I believe this chain of events occurred because something wanted me to explore the book.

Warlock Asylum: Besides your work with the Simon Necronomicon, are there any other spiritual practices or systems that you find useful in working with on your path?

Aqganon: I work with the Gods and Goddesses of ancient Egypt quite often. It’s quite interesting to compare my experiences with Gods of the Egyptian pantheon to ones concerning the deities of the Sumerian religion. Almost all of the Egyptian Gods that I have worked with come off to me as very elegant and lush. Set, for example, is very reserved but his energy always tells me that he could be doing more important instead of working with a human. He always expects my offerings to be top-notch; he always expects royalty and luxury. I don’t find this as much with Sumerian deities. The vibe I get from many of the spirits is very raw, primal, and hard to contain, which is why the book can be dangerous to individuals who are simply not ready. This applies mostly to the Ancient Ones, but many of the 50 spirits of Marduk have that trait as well. Moving on, I also practice magick often found in more theistic, spiritual branches of Satanism as opposed to the religion of Anton LaVey. I find that creating my own rituals is effective as well. Meditation, lucid dreaming, and psychic exercises have made it easier for me to communicate with energies and spirits.

Warlock Asylum: Practitioners of the “Necronomicon” are not always public about their work. It is getting a bit easier to speak about such subject, though it is something that is shunned by many. What inspired you to do a video on this topic?

Aqganon: I actually made the video as a follow-up to the video that preceded it. I play a game called Adventure Quest, and I put together a story about my character transforming into Pazuzu. Long story short, some people had no idea who Pazuzu and the Ancient Ones are and what the Necronomicon is. I decided to make a video to give the background information but I also did because I find a lot of enjoyment in talking about the Necronomicon. I’m constantly studying the book and looking in between the lines for deeper meanings and messages. I’ve encountered my fair share of people who oppose and condemn occult practices. It’s usually Christians…but I can’t blame them. A lot of Christians are raised with the idea of the occult and other religions being “evil”, so I’m instantly branded as a heretic. I don’t find the path of the occultist to be evil. To me, the way Christianity controls people is evil. But Christians are against evil. So there’s all of this pointless confusion. It isn’t really worthy of my attention, so I ignore it. My beliefs have been beneficial, so anything that those individuals say is meaningless to me.

Warlock Asylum: What topics should the subscribers of your YouTube channel expect to see discussed in the near future?

Aqganon: I’m going to begin a video series that will consist of me going over my interpretations of passages in the book, hidden messages, and more. I’ll eventually branch off into other grimoires and occult books and discuss them, too. I’ll definitely discuss the Book of Ceremonial Magic and Grimorium Verum.

Warlock Asylum: What advice would you give to anyone interested in occult study and the Simon Necronomicon?

Aqganon: The occult and the Necronomicon should be taken seriously. It isn’t something to joke about, really. Walking the path of an occultist is no simple task and lightly working with magick without legitimate intent can be dangerous.

Warlock Asylum: Are there any experiences in particular that you would like to share in regards to your workings that really helped you to see the reality behind the tome?

Aqganon: I can definitely share an experience. This happened quite a while ago, but I still find it very profound. I did the Hymn to the Ancient Ones followed by the Invocation of the Powers of the Urilia Text under deep meditation. I could feel a tingling sensation flowing into my 3rd Eye, then that sensation was flowing throughout my whole body. I stayed in front of my altar until the energy began to fade away. For the next few days, I had established deep connection with animals. I was able to send and receive visions from my cats in particular. I have had more intense results, but I’d rather keep those stories to myself.

Warlock Asylum: How has your life changed since entering the realm of occult studies? In what ways has your pursuit been beneficial? What downfalls have you experienced in your work?

Aqganon: I’d say that the occult has made my life better. Entering different levels of consciousness and planes of existence has given me knowledge that very few people have, which is the knowledge of the unseen. The most important thing I have learned is that I am in control of my own universe because I am an active, living God.

Warlock Asylum: Papers in the Attic staff would like to wish you all the best in your endeavors. What final thoughts would you like to share with our subscribers?

Aqganon: Thank you very much! Hmm, last thoughts? To all: hold the Necronomicon close to your heart. It can make the impossible happen. May the Gods be with all of you!

Thank you very much brother Aqganon, we appreciat the time you have taken to sit down and answer a few quesions. We s

Speaking Out Part 1: The Ancient Ones and The Necronomicon Background Info by Aqganon

Greetings! I would like to welcome all to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles. Thank you for visiting us!

Speaking Out is a new series our staff is putting together that focuses on the growing awareness and public expression of those who are embracing the Simon Necronomicon and its mystical practices. Many are exploring the text and verifying the energy and power behind it. here is a video I stumbled upon earlier this week. it was published by Aqganon on July 24th, 2013.

Different than some, we here at Papers in the Attic seek to enjoy the experiences of others engaged in this work, whether they exist within our outside of our Tradition. If this current is different from Xianity, let us prove such by the unity and freedom of expression that we respect and enjoy between ourselves, instead of the divided cult tactics, backstabbing, and the divisions that we see in the Christian world. It is with this in mind that we are happy to see people like Aqganon step forward. Enjoy!

New Historical Evidence That Supports The Ivory Tablets of the Crow Forces Scholars To Take A Second look at the History of Sumeria

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and do not hesitate to share your thoughts and insights. We wish you all the best in your spiritual endeavors. Stay blessed.

Today is a monumental day in the history of workings related to the Necronomicon Tradition and followers of the Ivory Tablets, as we are able to find historical validation for what was once thought to be only legend.  It is well-known by occultists abroad and adherents of various magical traditions that stories written by author H.P. Lovecraft were published at the beginning of the last century for entertainment purposes alone. In the introduction of the Simon Necronomicon, we read:

“We profitably compare the essence of most of Lovecraft’s short stories with the basic themes of Crowley’s unique system of ceremonial Magick. While the latter was a sophisticated psychological structure, intended to bring the initiate into contact with his higher Self, via a process of individuation that is active and dynamic (being brought about by the “patient” himself) as opposed to the passive depth analysis of the Jungian adepts, Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos was meant for entertainment. Scholars, of course, are able to find higher, ulterior motives in Lovecraft’s writings, as can be done with any manifestation of Art.”

While Lovecraft’s intent in writing was one based purely on entertainment, an idea that has come into question over the past few decades, occultists are also aware that Lovecraft was possibly under the influence of otherworldly things. These ideas were first explored, for the most part, by the legendary Kenneth Grant. Simon, editor of the controversial Necronomicon, also contributed a lot of additional information in support of Grant’s hypothesis that H.P. Lovecraft was indeed influenced by extraterrestrial beings. The application of such theories by magicians, mystics, and occultists of various schools of thought has led not only to a “tradition,” but a sanctuary for Lovecraft has been etched out in the western magick and the mind of its adherents.

The theme of Lovecraftian fiction can be summed up in an excerpt from one of his widely-known stories, The Call of Cthulhu, where we find the following:

“Old Castro remembered bits of hideous legend that paled the speculations of theosophists and made man and the world seem recent and transient indeed. There had been aeons when other Things ruled on the earth, and They had great cities. Remains of Them, he said the deathless Chinamen had told him, were still to be found as Cyclopean stones on islands in the Pacific. They all died vast epochs of time before men came, but there were arts which could revive Them when the stars had come round again to the right positions in the cycle of eternity. They had, indeed, come themselves from the stars, and brought Their images with Them.”

Lovecraft described, in his fictional stories, a “cult” that held communion with otherworldly energies, though subtle in some cases. These communications were with energies that existed before the existence of man, yet remains of such can be ascertained by Cyclopean stones found in the Pacific ocean where the city of Ryleh is said to have sunken. Adherents of this cult are said to receive messages from the old Ones in dreams. Mention is also made of a book called the Necronomicon:

“Of the cult, he said that he thought the centre lay amid the pathless deserts of Arabia, where Irem, the City of Pillars, dreams hidden and untouched. It was not allied to the European witch-cult, and was virtually unknown beyond its members. No book had ever really hinted of it, though the deathless Chinamen said that there were double meanings in the Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred which the initiated might read as they chose,.”

The Necronomicon is a word used to describe a fictional grimoire that appears in many of Lovecraft’s stories. What is interesting about the use of the term Necronomicon in the quote above, is that it is said to have double meanings, which suggests that the laymen would understand it one way, while the initiated would absorb something much deeper from the text. Additionally, we find that this “cult,” which held intercourse with Cthulhu, was not allied with the European witch-cult and was unknown in the histories of men, except among its members. This cult is also discussed in the Simon Necronomicon:

“The verses here following come from the secret text of some of the priests of a cult which is all that is left of the Old Faith that existed before Babylon was built,..”

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow claims to provide a history of this “cult” and its mystical practices. In the introduction of the Ivory Tablets we read:

“These same tablets appear prominently in the history of The Cult of Nyarzir. Having influenced the later cults that succeed them, like the Sumerians, they often described in the writings “the Nine Books of Dreams,” which can only be received from heaven…Historical records reveal little about this cult, but who accredited their knowledge to the Ninzuwu, a race of beings that shared a “mystical technology” with early man. Interestingly, we find in their writings a story of a magician named Xuz, which is almost identical to that of Enmeduranki. Are these two historical figures really the same person? Maybe.”

While the Ivory Tablets of the Crow has received much praise, as well as criticism, historians are now beginning to look a little deeper into the tome, as it may be instrumental in helping the academic world in decoding the meaning of newly discovered “lost civilizations.” The Ivory Tablets of the Crow is the only text to date that reveals the following in its mythology:

“And Xuz was skilled in the ways of war. He traveled across the waters of many lands and acquired a great deal of knowledge concerning the forgotten things. Some say that he was an immortal… One day Xuz decided to take a journey to the land of the Orientals….”

The passage, cited above, reveals that Xuz traveled to the “land of the Orientals.” This is something that the academic world is just beginning to discover. In order for us to understand the importance of this, we must first learn who Xuz is. In a Wikipedia article entitled the Origin of the Name Khuzestan, we read:

Some scholars believe Ahvaz and Khuzestan are related to the name Ooksin, a city established during the era of the Elamite civilization, and are the altered forms of the words OoksOokzHookzHuz and KhuzIraj Afshar in his Nigāhī bih Khūzistān : majmū`ah´ī az awzā`-i tārīkhī, jughrāfiyā’ī, ijtimā`i, iqtisādī-i mintaqah[3] states that Uxi was the Greek counterpart of the Elamite word ŪvjaAccording to Jules Oppert, the word Ūvja, was pronounced as Xuz or Khuz in the Elamite language. The word Ūvja appears abundantly in many texts and on Achaemenid inscriptions at Naqsh-e Rustam,and on Darius‘s epigraphs at Persepolis and Susa among others Ūvja, or its Greek counterpart Uxi, were names used to refer to the land or the peoples inhabiting the land of Khuzestan.”

The information provided by Wikipedia reveals that Xuz is an ancient name for the Elamite city known as Susa, and in later periods as Khuzestan. The Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and Linguistics, states the following on page 571:

“The area of Khuzestan is named after the Xuz, the original inhabitants of the area at the time of the Arab invasions, and was similarly named by the Arabs Suq al-’ Ahwaz ‘market of the Xuz’. ‘Ahwaz is the modern pronunciation,..”

Here we see that the original inhabitants of the Susa, the Elamite city, called themselves Xuz. Ironically the invading Arabs renamed this location Sug al Ahwaz, as they associated the name of the original inhabitants with “Ahwaz.” Ahwaz is strikingly similar in pronunciation similar to Crowley’s “Aiwass,” a topic that will be addressed later in our discussion. Therefore, Xuz, in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, represents a person, or the personification of a group that came from Elam, one of the oldest cities in the area of Mesopotamia, to the “land of the Orientals.” Before we continue, it is good to explore a few facts about Elam, specifically Susa.

1. The modern provincial name Khuzestān is derived from the Persian name for Susa: Old Persian Hūjiya “Elam” (Old Persian :), in Middle Persian Huź “Susiana”, which gave modern Persian Xuz,

2.  In historic literature, Susa appears in the very earliest Sumerian records: for example, it is described as one of the places obedient to Inanna, patron deity of Uruk, in Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta .

3. In urban history, Susa is one of the oldest-known settlements of the region and the world. Based on C14 dating, the foundation of a settlement there occurred as early as 4395 BCE (a calibrated radio-carbon date). Archeologists have dated the first traces of an inhabited Neolithic village to c 7000 BCE. Evidence of a painted-pottery civilization has been dated to c 5000 BCE.

The Ivory Tablets’ use of the term Xuz is prehistoric can be ascertain by what is mention in its introductory notes:

“Interestingly, we find in their writings a story of a magician named Xuz, which is almost identical to that of Enmeduranki. Are these two historical figures really the same person? Maybe.”

Enmeduranki was the said to be the prehistoric king of Sippur, which is quite a distance from Elam. Little is known about the early beginnings of Sippur. However, we do know that prior to the “flood epic” all rulers of ancient Mesopotamia had Sumerian names. After the said flood, rulers with Semitic names began to appear. This perhaps, leads us to the conclusion that the original inhabitants of Sumer probably migrated to the region of Elam and Susa. In the book Sumerian Mythology, famous Sumerianologist, Samual Noah Kramer stated:

“The Sumerians were a non-Semitic, non-Indo-European people who lived in southern Babylonia from 4000-3000 B.C.E. … their spiritual beliefs influenced all successive Near Eastern religions, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam.”

Similarly, Francois Vallet made the same observation about the people of Elam and Susa, in The History of Elam:

“Despite recent progress, Elamite history remains largely fragmentary. Because there are few indigenous sources, attempts at reconstruction must be based primarily on Mesopotamian documentation. By far the largest proportion of the known Elamite texts have been excavated at Susa, a city that, from its foundation ca. 4000 B.C.E., alternated between subjection to Mesopotamian and Elamite power (Amiet, 1979). The earliest levels excavated at the site furnished remarkable pottery that has no equivalent in Mesopotamia,… But it is only from the beginning of the Akkadian period that Elam really enters into history. In the following survey the variable orthography of proper names has been standardized, in the interests of simplification…. This dynasty, which was remarkable for its duration, was also characterized by a progressive “semitization” of the royal line; owing to the annexation of Susiana to the Elamite empire, the sukkalmahs ensured that Susa would remain a major center.”

Elam and Susa were eventually amalgamated with the Semites who invaded or came to rise in Sumer some time after the flood, which was also the case with ancient Mesopotamia. Susa, however, was considered to be “faithful” in service to Inanna but also maintained its own pantheon. It seems evident and very well probable that the prehistoric king, Enmeduranki, may have been a symbol also, like the Enoch who he is often compared too, of a ruling priesthood. Comparison between Enoch and Enmeduranki as the same person is quite overwhelming and the reader is encouraged to explore these in his/her own research. We will list one reference illustrating such in this article. Paradise Now: Essays on Jewish and Christian Mysticism says the following on page 192:

“In these Mesopotamian traditions a prototype of Enoch, Enmeduranki, is portrayed as a “translated” figure, the one “who sat in the presence (mahar) of Shamash and Adad, the divine adjudicators.”

Madame Blavatsky gives us some deeper insight into this subject. In her classic work The Secret Doctrine, she writes:

“The story about Enoch, told by Josephus, namely, that he had concealed under the pillars of Mercury or Seth his precious rolls or books, is the same as that told of Hermes, “the father of Wisdom,” who concealed his books of Wisdom under a pillar, and then, finding the two pillars of stone, found the science written thereon. Yet Josephus, notwithstanding his constant efforts in the direction of Israel’s unmerited glorification, and though he does attribute that science (of Wisdom) to the Jewish Enochwrites history. He shows those pillars as still existing during his own time. He tells us that they were built by Seth; and so they may have been, only neither by the Patriarch of that name, the fabled son of Adam, nor by the Egyptian god of Wisdom — Teth, Set, Thoth, Tat, Sat (the later Sat-an), or Hermes, who are all one, — but by the “sons of the Serpent-god,” or “Sons of the Dragon,” the name under which the Hierophants of Egypt and Babylon were known before the Deluge, as were their forefathers, the Atlanteans… The Secret Doctrine teaches us that the arts, sciences, theology, and especially the philosophy of every nation which preceded the last universally known, but not universal Deluge, had been recorded ideographically from the primitive oral records of the Fourth Race, and that these were the inheritance of the latter from the early Third Root-Race before the allegorical Fall. Hence, also, the Egyptian pillars, the tablets, and even the “white Oriental porphyry stone” of the Masonic legend — which Enoch, fearing that the real and precious secrets would be lost, concealed before the Deluge in the bowels of the Earth — were simply the more or less symbolical and allegorical copies from the primitive Records. The “Book of Enoch” is one of such copies and is a Chaldean,.. To accept Enoch as a Biblical character, a single living man, is like accepting Adam as the first one. Enoch was a generic title, applied to, and borne by, scores of individuals, at all times and ages, and in every race and nation.”

Blavatsky’s observation is in support of our recent discussion that Enmeduranki typified a priesthood that preserved the sacred knowledge of the races prior, and this class of Enmeduranki/Enki is said to have ruled before the flood, and moved thereafter is known. While Elam is often associated with Susa, they originally had separate and distinct cultures, which merged together in times of remote antiquity. Proof that this ancient Sumerian priesthood migrated into Elam can be ascertained by the fact that Elam was also known as Suzianna. Suzianna, according to the epic Enmeduranki and Related Matters, is the name of Dingir Enlil’s second wife. We read:

“First attendant of Suzianna, twin sister of Ansar,.14. Called by Anu and Dagan, chosen by the great gods..”

Suzianna, as the second wife of Enlil, represented how ancient Sumer lost the favor of the gods, and other nations, such as Elam, were looked upon with regard. History reveals that the Elam lost favor in the eyes of the gods by their disrespect of certain temple treasures when they defeated Babylon.

So far in our discussion, we have discovered that Xuz, mentioned in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, is either a person, or a group of people from Susa. Xuz, the modern Persian term as the Ivory Tablets of the Crow were translated by Jābir ibn Hayyān, who acquired the manuscript while visiting the ruins of ancient Mesopotamia. The Ivory Tablets mentions that this Xuz traveled to the “land of the Orientals.” It is worth asking at this point in our discussion, is there any historical evidence of such a migration that could only be accounted for in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow? Also, what region of Asia did this occur? We can answer such questions by looking further into the account concerning Xuz, as found in the Ivory Tablets:

“Xuz took refuge in a cave, hoping that the cold wind would cease and fell asleep with only with a day’s ration of food left, being that his company abandoned him. He awoke in fear from the sound of approaching footsteps. Shortly after, a woman appeared with a fresh pot of stew in her hands and a drawn sword. She was a beautiful maiden with long black hair and full lips, like the flowers that last for one season…. She taught him the mysterious language of the Orientals and their knowledge of certain plants and how to heal the body… Eventually, Xuz took the woman, …as his wife. Xuz came to know Nudzuchi.”

According to the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, Xuz took Nudzuchi as his wife. This marriage refers to either a great amalgamation by the people of Susa, the Xuz, into Asia, or an individual marriage. It is important for us to find out who Nudzuchi was, and based on this discovery we can found out what particular area in Asia did this occur. The Nihongi: Chronicles of Japan From the Earliest Times, states the following:

“Then they produced Ku-Ku-no-chi, the ancestor of trees, and next the ancestor of herbs, Kaya no hime. Also called Nudzuchi.”

The Nihongi reveals that Nudzuchi is a name that originates in remote Japan. It must also be stated that while the Ivory Tablets assigns Nudzuchi as female, Kaya no hime is referred to as male by some scholars of Japanese history and a female by others in academia. Based on such, the account given to us in the Ivory Tablets may be a symbolic description of the Chaldeans migration into the East and back round again. It seems, however, that Nudzuchi was a title of the wife of Xuz, for she is described in the Ivory Tablets as a healer and warrior-priestess. Author Jean Herbert, writes the following in the book Shinto: At the Fountainhead of Japan:

The Kami of moors, ‘whose name is’ Kaya-nu (or -no)-hime-no-kami (Kami Princess of the thatch-moor), and ‘another name for whom is’ Nu-dzu-chi-nokami (Kami moor-elder?).”

Based on the information presented so far, The Ivory Tablets of the Crow describes in its mythology a migration from the prehistoric land, known as Mesopotamia by some, into area of Japan. It is the only esoteric text to claims such a history. Can such a history be validated concerning our remote past?

The engraved stone tablets shown in photographs were excavated at one of sanctuaries in Okinawa and are kept at the Governmental Museum of Okinawa prefecture, where since prehistoric ages about 12000 B.P. to 6500 B. P.

The engraved stone tablets shown in photographs were excavated at one of sanctuaries in Okinawa and are kept at the Governmental Museum of Okinawa prefecture, where since prehistoric ages about 12000 B.P. to 6500 B. P.

Since 1978 the Japan Petroglyph Society have found no less than 3000 rocks with engravings throughout Japanese islands, documented by Government of Education and Cultures and Boards of Education. Now what is interesting about all of this is that the petroglyphs found on this rocks could only be deciphered using the Sumerian language. Xpeditions Magazine.Com reports:

“It is to be noted that most of those 3000 engraved rocks are located in the precincts or at the summits of sacred hills, which have been worshipped by the native inhabitants probably since prehistoric ages…The engraved stone tablets shown in photographs above were excavated at one of sanctuaries in Okinawa and are kept at the Governmental Museum of Okinawa prefecture, where since prehistoric ages about 12000 B.P. to 6500 B. P. “Sobata sea – people” used to dwell and build peculiar Okinawan cultures. ..As seen in the pictures, 2 big birds are engraved at the top of buildings (perhaps ancient types of shrines) and at the lower part of each building…In the right stone – tablet at the lower right is a pyramid engraved. These will show a characteristic of Japanese petroglyphs and their religious sides, because even today at Okinawa native sea people have sincere faith and pious belief in the legendary homeland, “Nidai-Kanai” which is believed to have been located in a very far place in the ocean, where their ancestors lived happy life forever. Some scholar suppose that their legendary homeland must be the lost, sunken continent of Mu. We do not know exactly when the continent of Mu sank, but according to under sea archaeology, some kind of geological catastrophe must have happened in 12000 B.P. These dates correspond to the legendary Okinawan stories. The stone tablets tell complete stories of the Mu’s culture and religion at that time. These 12 stone tablets, kept at the Governmental Museum, will provide us clue’s to solve the enigmaticf origins of human letters and languages. Another characteristic of the Japanese petroglyphs is that 30% of them could be deciphered with Proto-Sumerian and Sumerian cuneiforms. We do not know exactly why Japanese petroglyphs are related with Sumerian letters. The only thing we could suppose is that in the late prehistoric ages, Sumerian seafaring tribes threatened by Akkadians invasions fled to the seas. Some tribes reached prehistoric Japan, which the scholars who belong to The Epigraphic Society of Harvard University used to suggest at the ISAC and E.S. conference.Emeritus Prof. Barry Fell (late President of E.S.) was an outstanding leader of the theory, adding that he is sure the Sumerian seafaring people reached the Far East while other groups reached the Americas B.C…Shown below are exact samples of petroglyphs, which could be deciphered using the Sumerian language.”

These petroglyphs, which feature some characters similar the Vasuh language, the engraved stone tablets shown in photographs above were excavated at one of sanctuaries in Okinawa and are kept at the Governmental Museum of Okinawa prefecture, where since prehistoric ages about 12000 B.P. to 6500 B. P.  Interestingly, the article reveals that 30% of these petroglyphs could be deciphered by the use of proto-Sumerian! This shows us that what is revelaed in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow can be validated in prehistoric artifacts. It also seems that the Elamites, the Xuz, would migrate back and forth thought the region of Asia. This is confirmed for us in the introduction of the Ivory Tablets;

The Cult of Nyarzir migrated into the regions of Mesopotamia during its prehistoric period, knownto scholars as the Ubaid Period. Not much is written about this period in ancient Mesopotamian history, with the exception of the pottery found in this area, and specific burial practices have also been found at Eridu and Ur along with distinctive clay figurines of humans with lizard-like heads. These are commonly known as the Ubaid figurines.”

It is known, even as evidence by the early Native Americans’ history in the United States, that many indigenous tribes around the world didn’t believe that a person could own land. The Cult of Nyarzir is mentioned in the Ivory Tablets as being a nomadic people. Centuries later their knowledge was preserved by the efforts of two specific priesthoods, one from Mesopotamia and the other from East Asia. This is evident also by some of the similarities in the names of geographical locations from ancient Sumeria’s past and that of Japan today. For example, the Gilgamesh Epics describe twin mountains where access can be had to the Underworld, the abode of the gods, and the Throne of Ishtar. These were called Mount Mashu in ancient Babylonian mythology.  Ironically, the term “mashu” appears in Japan today, as a similar use appears in Japan as Lake Mashu. Wikipedia writes the following about Lake Mashu:

Lake Mashū was originally named Lake of the Devil by the Ainu. This was rendered as Lake Mashin (魔神湖, Mashin-ko?) by the Japanese. Over time, however, the Japanese began to refer to the lake by the Japanese reading for the neighboring peak, Mount Mashū (摩周岳, Mashū-dake?). The kanji for this peak translate roughly as scrubbed area mountain. The Ainu name for this peak, by which it is commonly known today, is Kamuinupuri or mountain of the gods. The lake also retains its Ainu name, Kamuito or lake of the gods.”

The ancient Chaldean presence in Japan is metaphorically described in the Tablets as the marriage between Xuz and Nudzuchi. This is also supported in the work of the legendary Kenneth Grant. Grant writes the following in his classic work, Outer Gateways:

Tiamat will once more rule the Earth”. Her other number, 71, is thenumber of Lam, and of the Kami, a name bestowed in ancient Japan upon the Old Ones whom the Egyptians named the Sami.”

The prehistoric unity that took place between seers of the Middle East and mystics of the furthest reaches of Asia, may have been the meaning of the unity between Tiamat and Apsu. In the Simon Necronomicon’s Magan Text, we read:

“And Naught existed but the Seas of ABSU, The Ancient One,..And MUMMU TIAMAT, the Ancient One..Who bore them all,..Their Waters as One Water.”

Of course this passage, and other information in this discussion has allegorical and mystical meaning is known, but even these things are often times based on historical events. Dingir Enki, building his house above the Absu could possibly illustrate The many changes that took place when the Enmeduranki/Enki class received its knowledge from the races prior and settled in Mesopotamia. The Ivory Tablets says the following about Nudzuchi:

“She taught him the mysterious language of the Orientals and their knowledge of certain plants and how to heal the body. Eventually, Xuz took the woman, whose name is moo-ah-moo-ah-eekhss-you-mmh-ha-eh-ph-moo-ah-eehzz-eehzz, Lady of Heaven, the Warrior-Priestess, as his wife…Xuz and Nudzuchi taught Johuta all the things concerning the forgotten knowledge of the fiery ones, which she kept faithfully.”

Lovecraft wrote about Cyclopean stones in the Pacific. (Professor Kimura is satisfied that the undersea ruins relics of ancient civilizations. Professor Kimura very confidently asserted: "As Okinawa surrounding seabed archaeological research, will allow the world's most ancient civilizations brought to light, the ancient 'Dragon Caves' legends that suggest the existence of ancient civilizations submarine and sank in the sea' MU civilization 'let submarine underwater story has been going down, I'm sure Yonaguni underwater ruins, is twelve thousand years ago, suddenly disappeared' Jin Wenming '. ")

While it is not publicly known, there was a certain caste of priestesses that established a prehistoric, theocratic government in Japan.  In an online article entitled, The Birth of Japan’s Shinto Goddess Amaterasu, we read:

“The Yayoi period shows evidence of women as chiefs of clans and as shamans, also important roles in society at the time. Chinese documents from the 3rd century C.E. show a female Queen Himiko who was a shaman or high priestess and queen of many tribes. She was selected by the Yayoi by popular vote to rule over them as she was able to reunite warring tribes. Himiko is recorded to have successfully ruled Yamataikoku, conducting transactions with the Chinese.”

Nudzuchi represented an ancient matriarchal society that ruled much of Japan in times of remote antiquity. This warrior-priestess class shared an alliance with the Xuz, members of the ancient Mesopotamian priesthood. The mysterious arts developed by the union of these theocratic societies spawned seeds throughout Eygpt, India, China, Polynesia, and even North America.

The Ivory Tablets reveal that Xuz and Nudzuchi gave birth to a daughter named Johuta, who is described as the Crow, the Sun goddess, but also the “Sun behind the Sun,” a stellar black or white hole. The reader should keep in mind that while we are dicussing some of the historical aspects of the Ivory Tablets, much of its meaning lies in the alchemical process and symbolism.

The term Johuta is composed of two Sanskrit terms, huta, meaning invocation and the prefix Jo, derives from the Sankrit Jai, or Jah, meaning victory, but also refers to, Iao. Madame Blavatsky wrote the following under the topic, The Christian Scheme;

“Iao is certainly a title of the Supreme Being, and belongs partially to the Ineffable Name; but it neither originated with nor was it the sole property of the Jews… In an old religion of the Chaldeans, whose remains are to be found amongst the Neo-platonists, the highest divinity enthroned above the seven heavens, representing the Spiritual Light-Principle (nous)(1) and also conceived as Demiurgus,(2) was called Iao, who was, like the Hebrew Yâho, mysterious and unmentionable, and whose name was communicated to the initiated. The Phœnicians had a Supreme God whose name was trilateral and secret, and he was Iao.”… In Sanskrit we have Jah and Jaya, or Jaa and Ja-ga, and this throws light on the origin of the famous festival of the car of Jaganath, commonly called Jaggarnâth. Javhe means “he who is,” and Dr. Spiegal traces even the Persian name of God, “Ahura,” to the root ah, which in Sanskrit is pronounced as, to breathe, and asu, became, therefore, in time, synonymous with “Spirit.” Rawlinson strongly supports the opinion of an Aryan or Vedic influence on the early Babylonian mythology. ….IAO, in such a case, would — etymologically considered — mean the “Breath of Life,” generated or springing forth between an upright male and an egg-shaped female principle of nature; for, in Sanskrit, asmeans “to be,” “to live or exist”; and originally it meant “to breathe.” “From it,” says Max Müller, “in its original sense of breathing, the Hindus formed ‘asu,’ breath, and ‘asura,’ the name of God, whether it meant the breathing one or the giver of breath.” “

Based on the information sited above, Johuta means, invocation of Iao, or invocation of the spirit of life. It seems probable, and well in the vein of historical data that we have on our hands today, that after this union occurred between these two groups of Xuz and Nudzuchi, the knowledge that they shared took root in India, as Johuta is a Sanskrit term. This right began as a opure clean system, which changed due to the literal interpretation by the laymen of teachings that were preserved by the ancient priestly Indian class of seers, personified as Johuta. Johuta is the said author of the Ivory Tablets, a member of the Cult of Nyarzir. In the Tablets we read:

I have copied these words faithfully as my Father instructed….. The following are the Nine Books of Xuz, who some men call the Dehfu, Books of Life.”

The books that were kept and copied by Johuta were called Dehfu. The text attributes Dehfu as “books of life.” Interestingly, the term Dehfu is derived from the Sanskrit tafu, which means “make fire.” The Johuta saw as what has fire also has life. This is further affirmed for us in the Ivory Tablets as we see the first letter, petroglyph, in the Vasuh language is Zhee, which means “light of the goddess.”

The Nine Books of Dreams held by Johuta, the spirit of life, appears as nine petroglyphs similar to those found in Okinawa, as we discussed earlier. Each of these petroglyphs has an esoteric meaning and is used in an alchemical way. The interesting thing about all of this is that these nine letters, or petroglyphs, are said to be part of a language called Vasuh. These nine petroglyphs are also related to nine chakras appearing in the aura. The term Vasuh is strikingly similar to Vasu. In a Wikipedia article under the term Vasu we read:

In Hinduism, the Vasus are attendant deities of Indra, and later Vishnu. They are eight elemental gods representing aspects of nature, representing cosmic natural phenomenon. The name Vasu means ‘Dweller’ or ‘Dwelling’…. Vasu is also the name of the eighth chakra (group) of Melakarta ragas in Carnatic music. The names of chakras are based on the numbers associated with each name. In this case, there are 8 Vasus and hence the eighth chakra is Vasu.”

This is quite interesting as the Vasus are attendant deities of Indra. Taking into account that the Vasus consist of 8 elemental gods of Indra, upon which we have nine deities in all. This is quite interesting for Indra has been documented as being connected to Sumer. Indra is often associated with the “lightning bolt.” The Ivory Tablets of the Crow describes its nine Vasuh letters, the Soul of Fire Prayer, as a lightning bolt:

Stay with the Soul of Fire. It is a Prayer of Fire that has been preserved..From a time that was before time..It is the Power of Lightening..Crooked in its shape..It is the Prayer of Fire.”

Indra was also the subject of many of L. A. Waddell’s writings. Waddell is also cited in the introductory notes of the Simon Necronomicon.  There are many source that speak about Waddell’s theories on Indra, but more specifically the following website Children of the Matrix stated the following:

L.A. Waddell first began to see the connections between apparently unconnected people and events during his early days in India while studying Hindu history and mythology. He noticed that Eindri, the name used in the Edda text for the European and Norse “god” called Thor, was remarkably close to the Hindu god, Indra. The Indian Vedas, which were inspired by the Lemurian and Sumerian legends and accounts, describe Indra as tall, fair, invincible, and armed with a bolt…. Waddell produces a stream of evidence to show that the Hindu god, Indra, and the European, Thor, after whom we get Thursday or “Thors-day”, are the same person or deity. He also says that the legend of Thor is the origin of the legends of King Arthur. Thor is known in the Edda as Her-Thor, which became Ar-Thur. Both Her and Ar come from the same root meaning…Aryan.15 The mist began to clear even further when Waddell observed that the name of the first Aryan king of the Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia had the name of Indara, In Dur, In-Tur, or King Tur.16

The information cited above illustrates in great detail how Indra was closely associated with Thor, both of which have the lightning bolt as their symbol. In other writings of Waddell associates this Indra with the Dur of Indur. The Rise of Man of man in the Gardens of Sumeria by Christine Preston, quotes Waddell as saying:

The Indra’ name is clearly derived from the Sumerian title of Sakh for the Father-god In-Dur as the enthroned Lord.”

Of course, this Indra who Waddell identifies as the Lord In-dur, is the same In-dur spoken of in the Simon Necronomicon’s Urilia text:

Prepare, then the bowl of TIAMAT, the DUR of INDUR, the Lost Bowl, the Shattered Bowl of the Sages,”

The Dur of In-dur is the Bowl of Utu, bowl of the Sun. It was believed by Waddell to be the Holy Grail. Interestingly, this bowl, dedicated to the Sun god, has eight lines. This is similar to the Vasuh petroglyphs appearing in the Ivory Tablets as the eight Vasuh letters are all emanations of the first, which means light of the goddess. More information on the Bowl of Utu, can be found in the Wikipedia article with the same title Bowl of Utu. It is perhaps also possible that the Simon Necronomicon’s mention of this bowl in the Urilia text and the fact that it must be “cracked” could be a reference to the lightning bolt, a symbol of Indra.

Another interesting aspect about the term Vasuh can be found in the history of prehistoric India. The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, calls the nine Vasuh letters the footprints of the Crow. In the book, The Ruling Races of Prehistoric Times in India, by James F. K. Hewitt, we read:

This god Vasu, the Indian snake-god Vasuki was originally the Northern spring- god,”

Vasuki was also known as Vasu. He is a naga and revered as a great king of the nagas. Vasuki is known in Chinese and Japanese mythology as being one of the “eight Great Naga Kings.” It should also be noted that there is a group in India who claim lineage from Vasuki. They are known in history as the Nair clan. The name Nair is very close in pronunciation to Nyarzir. The term Nair is often rendered by scholars as Nayar. This is evidence of Cult of Nyarzir’s existence in history. In the Wikipedia article under the name Vasuki we read:

“Vasuka (or Vasuki) is the name of a small Nair clan found near Mannarasala in Travancore. They claim that their ancestors were Nāga serpents spared when the Khandava Forest (modern day Delhi) was burnt and cleared by Krishna and the Pandavas to make way for their capital Indraprastha.”

 Mr. N. Subramani Aiyar writes in a note on the Nāyars of Travancore, "believe that Nāyar is derived from Nāga (serpents), as the Aryans so termed the earlier settlers of Malabar on account of the special adoration which they paid to snakes. The Travancore Nāyars are popularly known as Malayāla Sūdras a term which contrasts them sharply with the Pāndi or foreign Sūdras, of whom a large number immigrated into Travancore in later times."

Mr. N. Subramani Aiyar writes in a note on the Nāyars of Travancore,
“believe that Nāyar is derived from Nāga (serpents), as the Aryans so termed the earlier settlers of Malabar on account of the special adoration which they paid to snakes. The Travancore Nāyars are popularly known as Malayāla Sūdras a term which contrasts them sharply with the Pāndi or foreign Sūdras, of whom a large number immigrated into Travancore in later times.”

There is another aspect about the nine letters of the Vasuh Language that should enter this discussion. In the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, we read:

After these things are said The Bride of Nyarzir will come to thee in a Dream and fill thy body with Nine Letters of the Vasuh.”

Here we clearly see that the Bride of Nyarzir anoints the Initiate with the Nine Letters of Vasuh after they have undergone some sort of baptism ceremony. The Bride of Nyarzir is described in the Ivory Tablets as a four-faced goddess. We also find that the Vasuh letters are said to be the energies of the Great Bear constellation, specifically the Big Dipper in the Supplementary Material To 777, found in the Ivory Tablets. Can all of this be confirmed in Eastern traditions today? Yes!

Marici, the famous four-faced goddess is described as having the same qualities as the Bride of Nyarzir in the Ivory Tablets. In a Wikipedia article under the title Marici, who is known in Taoism as Dou Mu

In Taoism, Dou Mu remains a popular deity and is often referred to as Queen of Heaven (Chinese: 天后; pinyin: Tiān Hòu) and is widely worshiped as the Goddess of Beidou (the Chinese equivalent of Ursa Major except that it also includes 2 “attendant” stars). She is also revered as the mother of the Nine Emperor Gods who are represented by the nine stars in the Beidou constellation.”

It is clear that the history revealed in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow illustrates that the customs and teachings of the “cult” that existed before Babylon. The Introduction of the Ivory Tablets reveals that the “Cult of Nyarzir” received much of their knowledge from otherworldly beings known as the Ninzuwu. The Ninzuwu are caretakers of the stars.

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and share some of your experiences and insights. Stay Blessed.

We recently discovered something quite interesting that many of you may want to keep in your notes, as it pertains to the origin of the Ishtar Gate .  Below is the Ishtar Gate symbol found in the Simon Necronomicon:

The Ishtar Gate of the Simon Necronomicon

The Ishtar Gate of the Simon Necronomicon

The Ishtar Gate symbol appearing in the Simon Necronomicon compares greatly to an illustration by Jean D’Espagnet, which was designed in 1651. D’Espagnet connected spacial and temporal elements in his diagram by assigning the classical heavenly symbols to the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.

In 1651 Jean D'Espagnet proposed a square arrangement of planets and zodiacal signs, depicted in the illustration.

Biblical and Islamic Prophesies About The Simon Necronomicon

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles, and share your insights and thoughts. Stay blessed.

The Simon Necronomicon is probably best considered the 8th wonder of the world of literature and occult grimoire since its release in the 1970’s. While much controversy has surrounded the Simon tome, many have found it to be of great benefit and have pursued the spiritual path that we know as the great Necronomicon Tradition. Personally, I am of the opinion that there is no other grimoire that compares to the craftiness, dark poetry, and historical accuracy of the said work.

Adherents of the Necronomicon Tradition have grown rapidly over the past ten years, despite the words of critics and many who claim that the book is a hoax. Some have found it to be a tremendous source of personal transformation. We can truly say that new millennium is indeed, properly titled, the Age of the Mad Arab.

One of the amazing things about the Simon Necronomicon lies not only in its contents, but the prophecies surrounding the book, which were made by other “holy books” that exist in the societies of men. One book in particular, the Christian Bible, makes mention of the Simon tome in the book of Revelation. Anyone familiar with ancient Sumerian Mythology, upon which the structure of the Simon Necronomicon is based upon, can easily see this correlation in Revelation Chapter 5. Here we read the following:

“[1] And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
[2] And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
[3] And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
[4] And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
[5] And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
[6] And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
[7] And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
[8] And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
[9] And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
[10] And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
[11] And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
[12] Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
[13] And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
[14] And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.”

The verses that are cited above appear in the King James translation of the Holy Scriptures. Interestingly, chapter five discusses a seven-sealed book that no one could open except the “Lamb” and say such is connected with the Lion of the tribe of Judah. This clearly points t Sumerian mythology. Donald K. Sharpes, in his legendary work, entitled; Lords of The Scrolls: Literary Traditions in the Bible and Gospels, states the following on page 130:

The phrase “the lamb of god” and similar symbols from Hebrew, Jewish and Christian traditions are Sumerian in origin.”

The Lion of the tribe of Judah, would relate to the sign of Leo and to the god Latarak. Gavin White has written many excellent discourses on Babylonian Astrology, one in particular can be viewed at the following article, entitled Babylonian Leo:

Regardless of its attribution to Latarak, the Lion is especially associated with the war goddess in both literature and art. The war goddess, known as Inanna in Sumerian and Ištar in Akkadian, is sometimes simply known as the ‘Lioness of Heaven’. Mythic texts reveal that her temple throne was supported by a pair of ferocious lions, but more often than not Inanna could be found on the battle-field where the roar of her sacred lion enunciated war – ‘the lion, the dog of Ištar, roared and did not stop roaring’.”

According to White, the opener of this book is none other than DinGir Ishtar. This is quite interesting and something that may have not ever been considered till now. It seemed that the Judaic system, while inheriting many things from their Chaldean forefather Abraham, also adjusted such to fit a patriarchic society. It is due to such that the Christian crucified god was considered a male deity. However, in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon, we read the following:

“But what of INANNA, the single planetary deity having a female manifestation among the Sumerians? She is invoked in the NECRONOMICON and identified as the vanquisher of Death, for she descended into the Underworld and defeated her sister, the Goddess of the Abyss, Queen ERESHKIGAL (possibly another name for TIAMAT). Interestingly enough, the myth has many parallels with the Christian concept of Christ’s death and resurrection, among which the Crucifixion (INANNA was impaled on a stake as a corpse), the three days in the Sumerian Hades, and the eventual Resurrection are outstanding examples of how Sumerian mythology previewed the Christian religion by perhaps as many as three thousand years – a fact that beautifully illustrates the cosmic and eternal nature of this myth.”

Just as Christians anticipate the return of Christ, so too is the respected return of DinGir Ishtar heralded by those who are able to open up a book with seven seals. This is quite a fascinating feature of the fifth chapter of Revelation as it seems to be an Apocrypha of the old Chaldean rites, who preserved their rites in what is known as an “astral Necronomicon,” which the legendary magician Kenneth Grant mentioned in his writings, and later revealed in the pages of the Simon Necronomicon. This time mentioned in Revelation and the opening of a special book, pertains to the increased understanding of the ancient Chaldean rites, of a cult that existed before Babylon and maintained by adherents of the Necronomicon Tradition. There is more!

Other proof that the Simon Necronomicon is the “book” described in Revelation Chapter 5, has a lot to do with the gematria, or mathematical calculations of this part of the Christian Bible. Before we go deeper into this topic, it is important to illustrate that gematria originated in Sumeria and was passed down to the Chaldeans, who eventually passed it on to certain Jewish fractions during their captivity in Babylon.

The Doctrine of Sin in the Babylonian Religion, written by Julian Morgenstern, published in 1905, states the following on page 2:

“And not everyone could offer sacrifice or participate in the divine services. Before the baru-priest could perform his holy duties, he had to fulfill certain requirements, had to be of noble, priestly blood, a descendant of Enmeduranki; had to be of perfect bodily growth, and thoroughly acquainted with his priestly duties….Therefore, since it was man’s duty to offer sacrifice, it was first of all his duty to keep himself ritually pure.”

The information cited above illustrates how important Enmeduranki was to the ancient Babylonians, as one had to be a descendant of this pre-dynastic king of Sumer if they were to take on priesthood duties, and it was King Enmeduranki who discovered the art of gematria.

In the myth, Enmeduranki and Related Matters, we read about the king coming into power during a time where “demons” of the lower world began to overtake the Earth. King Enmeduranki was shown the mysteries of heaven and earth and given the “book of life” in order to clear out these undefiled things that had become popular in the land. Here is a portion of the text:

“1. Enmeduranki [king of Sippar],

2. The beloved of Anu, Enlil [and Ea].

4. Šamaš and Adad [brought him in] to their assembly,

5. Šamaš and Adad [honored him],

6. Šamaš and Adad [set him] on a large throne of gold,

7. They showed him how to observe oil on water, a mystery of Anu, [Enlil and Ea],

8. They gave him the tablet of the gods, the liver, a secret of heaven and [underworld],

9. They put in his hand the cedar-(rod), beloved of the great gods.

10. Then he, in accordance with their [word(?)] brought

11. The men of Nippur, Sippar and Babylon into his presence,

12. And he honored them. He set them on thrones before [him],

13. He showed them how to observe oil of water, a mystery of Anu, Enlil and Ea,

14. He gave them the tablet of the gods, the liver, a secret of heaven and underworld,”

We later read in this mythology the following:

15. He put in their hands the cedar-(rod), beloved of the great gods.

16. {The tablet of the gods, the liver, a mystery of heaven and underworld;

17. How to observe oil on water, a secret of Anu, Enlil and Ea;

18. ‘That with commentary’; When Anu, Enlil; and how to make mathematical calculations.}

Here we see that the divine knowledge that King Enmeduraki possessed also included a system of mathematical calculations, or what is known today as gematria. This prophesy, concerning the Necronomicon in the biblical book of Revelation, takes place in the 5th chapter, five is a number of DinGir Ishtar. Additionally, there are 435 words in the 5th chapter, or 4 + 3 + 5 =12. 12 is the number of DinGir Nebo, who rules over the art held out by scribes. The fact that twelve is the sacred number of DinGir Nebo also points to the mention of the Necronomicon in the Holy Qu’ran.

Injil is a term that appears in the Holy Qu’ran twelve times. It is a book given to Isa (Jesus) from God. Although the term is used by Arab Christians to refer to the four gospels, most Muslim scholars agree that the Injil is the true Gospel bestowed upon Jesus by God. This true gospel, specifically had a lot to do with the revelations Jesus (Isa) received from God. The term Injil is derived from the Greek, euangelion, which ultimately means “God Spell.” This is quite interesting as Jesus relates to the patriarchic view of the Ishtar mythos, as he was described in the Biblical book of Revelation as being able to open up a seven-sealed book, so too is the Injil said to be a revelation from God to Jesus. The Mad Arab wrote:

And one such demon was raised by that Priest of Jerusalem, ABDUL BEN-MARTU, and was fed extensively on the sheep of the flocks of Palestine, whereupon it grew to frightening proportion and eventually devoured him. But that was madness, for Ben-Martu worshipped the Old Ones, which is unlawful, as it is written.”

Our Concluding Post & Digital-Theatre Presentation: Understanding The Simon Necronomicon’s -The Cult of the Goat-The Cult of the Dragon-The Cult of the Dog

Greetings! I would like to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please take the time to review some of our previous articles and share your experiences, thoughts, and insights. Stay blessed!

I would like to thank everyone for their support over the years. It has definitely been a historic journey to say the least. Before the blog page started, the idea of a “Necronomicon Tradition” was highly-criticized by other “occult groups” who are often persecuted for their stance and beliefs, go figure. Today, however, we see the rise of a Tradition that has a deeper understanding of the Greater Mysteries than many online organizations. Yet, these groups refuse to admit the progress that has been made, probably in fear of losing business and members.

It was recently announced that we will be closing the blog page until the year 2015. However, there are still many resources about the Necronomicon Tradition available online. The reason for closing the blog page temporarily was explained in a recent article. However, our readership should also be aware that this falls in line with the instructions given by the Mad Arab, upon which this post is entitled. Confused? Let’s take a look at the words of the Mad Arab in his Second Testimony:

“Beware of the Cults of Death, and these are the Cult of the Dog, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Cult of the Goat; for they are worshippers of the Ancient Ones, and forever try to let Them in, for they have a formulae of which it is unlawful to speak. And these cults are not strong, save at their seasons, when the heavens open up to them and unto their race.”

Many have wondered about the identification of the “Cults of Death” mentioned by the Mad Arab. They are described as “worshippers of the Ancient Ones,” something which the Mad Arab considered to be unlawful. Yet in still, understanding what these cults represent may clear up some of the recent confusion, about how the Simon Necronomicon is to be worked with and what its true purpose really is.

 

The Cult of the Goat

In the classic work by Lewis Spence entitled Myths and Legends of Assyria and Babylonia, we find the following description of the Cult of the Goat existing in ancient Mesopotamia, on pages 292-293:

“This cult of the goat appears to be of very ancient origin, and the strange thing is that it seems to have found its way into mediaeval and even into modern magic and pseudo-religion.”

Prior to this passage Spence identifies the “goat god” and leader of the Cult of the Goat:

“The goat, too, seems to have been peculiarly sacred, and formed one of the signs of the zodiac. A god called Uz has for his name the Akkadian word for goat. Mr. Hormuzd Rassam found a sculptured stone tablet in a temple of the sun-god at Sippara on which was an inscription to Sin, Shammash, and Ishtar, as being “set as companions at the approach to the deep in sight of the god Uz.” This god Uz is depicted as sitting on a throne watching the revolution of the solar disc, which is placed upon a table and made to revolve by means of a rope or string. He is clad in a robe of goat-skin.”

Spence identifies the ancient god Uz, as the “goat god.” He is described as the god of the Goat Cult. However, while he is not readily known by the name “Uz,” he must have been an important god for in the sculpture found by Rassam, he is seen sitting on a throne. When we investigate the identity of the Akkadian god Uz, we will see further why the Mad Arab wrote that one needed to “Beware of the Cult of the Goat.”

James F. K. Hewitt in Primitive Traditional History, published in 1907, gives us a full detailed history as to who this god Uz really was:

“This Pole Star goat was in Akkadian Mythology Azuga Suga, the Supreme Goat of Mul-lil, lord of dust, and his ministers-the Akkadian priests wore the goat-skin dresses which were the national garment of the Indian caste of Vaishyas or Villagers, which they still wear at their initiation. Also this god Uz is depicted in Babylonian engraved pictures as watching the revolutions of the sun’s disc. This Pole Star goat was called Azaga-siqqa, the highest horned one, also Uz-makh, the mighty goat of Mul-lil, and he became the special god of Gudua and Kutha, the city cemetery of the Akkadian race. He was called Ner-gal, whose Akkadian name Nerra or Ner is translated by Assyrian tribes as the Strong and the Great Bright One,”

Here we can clearly see that the god Uz, the god of the Cult of the Goat, in none other than Nergal. So when the Mad Arab speaks about the Cult of the Goat, he is referring to the Cult of Nergal.

 

The Cult of the Dragon

An investigation into the Cult of the Dragon will validate the information concerning the Cult of the Goat and its god as we will quickly see. Unlike the Cult of the Goat, the “dragon” is easy to identify. Social-Science Commentary on the Book of Revelations, states the following on page 174:

Tiamat is the head of the tanninim (“sea- monsters, whales”), and is called in Akkadian: Bis-his (“Dragon),”

Tiamat’s identification as the “dragon” referred to by the Mad Arab’s term Cult of the Dragon is well-known. Christine Preston in a book entitled The Rise of Man in the Gardens of Sumeria, writes:

“EL is a powerful matriarch gifted with occult powers deified during her own life and the ruler of the indigenous Old Chaldean world, who controls a dragon-serpent cult, and demands blood sacrifices…..The slaying of the dragon in Indo-European poetics was symbolic of the eradication of the serpent-dragon cults as a result of a great battle fought by Aryan Goths against the matriarchal ruler in Eden in about 3,000 BC and their victory…..Waddell’s interpretation also sheds light on the Killing of Tiamat by Marduk in Mesopotamian tradition.”

This would identify the dragon as Tiamat, and Simon confirms Preston’s words in the introduction of the Simon Necronomicon:

In the West, the conjuration, cultivation, or worship of this Power was strenuously opposes with the advent of the Solar, Monotheistic religions and those who clung to the Old Ways were effectively extinguished.”

The “power” that Simon is referring to is that of the dragon, but also Tiamat. Thus, we can see when the Mad Arab is referring to the Cult of the Dragon, he is referring to the Cult of Tiamat.

 

The Cult of the Dog

Finally we come to the Cult of the Dog. For those of us who have done their study proper, this cult is not at all difficult to identify. Eat Not This Flesh by Fredrick Simoons, page 245, states:

“There is a royal text dating from the Semitic first dynasty of Isin (2017-1794 B.C.) of the Old Babylonian period that deals with dedication of a “dog house” for Ninisina, who was patron goddess of the city. Excavations near the temple have uncovered clear evidences of a dog cult, among them more than thirty dog burials, as well as copper pendants with engravings of dogs; a human being on its knees and embracing a dog; and bronze or clay dog figurines, one of which bears a prayer “to Gula, a lady of life, great physician,..”

In an online article entitled “Going to the Dogs”: Healing Goddesses of Mesopotamia by Johanna Stuckey, we read:

“Nin-Isina’s city must have been a kind of Mesopotamian Lourdes, a place of pilgrimage for the sick, maimed, and dying. The temple also provided midwives (Leick 1998: 133). The precinct of the E-gal-makh must have been an extremely busy and noisy place, with sufferers seeking treatment, priests performing rituals and incantations, and dogs barking. Like Lourdes, it would have been crowded with votive and dedicatory objects. During festivals in the goddess’s honor, her statue would have been carried through the city to the sounds of music and rejoicing. Nin-Isina’s precinct also housed a sanctuary called “Dog-House,” probably a “sacred dog kennel” (George 1993: 156 #1182). There the goddess’s alter ego would have enjoyed a luxurious life, until, perhaps, it became a sacrifice. During excavations, many dog burials were unearthed in the cult area (Fuhr 1977: 136), probably remains of votive and ritual sacrifices. A very important deity, Nin-Isina was worshiped all over Mesopotamia and had temples or shrines in most major cities (George 1993: 88 #320-321, 152 #1123).”

The goddess of the Cult of the Dog is Gula, who is known in the Simon Necronomicon mysteries as Nindinugga. Education In Early 2nd Millennium Babylonia by Alexandra Kleinerman, states:

“On a smaller scale this connection may also be seen in instances such as the occurrence of the healing goddess Nintinuga, the Nippur manifestation of the Isin goddess, Gula.”

It seems interesting to know that the Cult of the Goat, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Cult of the Dog, are references to the cults of Nergal, Tiamat, and Nintinugga. Why would the Mad Arab write in his second testimony that we should “beware” of such cults? I am sure that our readers will be able to see why when we re-open in 2015.

We would now like to present our concluding digital-theatre presentation:

Feature Article: Sword Of A Sage Woman-Interview With Ankhara Illiyantha

Wielder of the Sword and The Secret Name, The Secret Shape, and The Secret Number - Ankhara Illiyantha

Wielder of the Sword and The Secret Name, The Secret Shape, and The Secret Number – Ankhara Illiyantha

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles, and do not hesitate to share some of your thoughts and insights by posting a comment. Stay blessed.

Recently, I had the honor and opportunity to spend some time at the Burj Al Arab. It was the location of our monthly meeting, where we all converge in astral projection and discuss and implement methods needed in the Great Work! Today, was a bit different. I had a meeting with the co-producer of our digital-theatre series, and renowned Sage Woman, Ankhara Illiyantha.

The Pictorial Target For Our Last Astral Projection Meeting

The Pictorial Target For Our Last Astral Projection Meeting

Warlock Asylum: When readers of Papers in the Attic blog page hear the name “Ankhara” they often think about the powerful sorceress that appears in the Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition series. However, for our readers who are not familiar with your persona, how would you best describe yourself?

Ankhara Illiyantha: Blessings dear brother and readers of Papers in the Attic. We are all consciousness manifested into form by the many frequency layers of light and sound vibration.  Form is a product of our manifestation in specific spheres of reality.  Each reality is encoded with specific patterns that mold us as pure energy to fit into the given paradigm.  I would describe myself as Consciousness manifested into form in this construct.  I have a joyful nature and seek for beauty and perpetuation of the manifestations of Consciousness, Life, to protect what I consider sacred, that is All of Life and its manifold realities, to ensure All of You and All That Is, eternally remains.  I am always seeking for the exploration of the unseen and the unknown and it’s relation with what is shown.  Although everything is known, in a higher consciousness level, as we step into the inner layers of reality we forget and thus it is our path to remember the nature of the Micro and Macro Cosmos.

Warlock Asylum: Many people have sought your counsel and advice due to the “miraculous abilities” that you are noted in having. Are these things the result of a particular spiritual path? How did you discover your path?

Ankhara Illiyantha: The Spiritual Path is Existence in itself.  There is no book that contains all the mysteries, but you can regain a lot of yourself if you seat in the inner library and study all that have been brought to light so far.  The possibilities are endless.  The path to Wisdom is not a road but the broadness of our expanded awareness.  It is not on the perception of the external reality but in the experiencing of the inner universe, for we are the minds behind what is manifested.  By withdrawing your energy you are able to see the worlds with no mirrors and stare with a single eye.  By projecting your energy outwards you create the reality your Conscious or Unconscious Will is dreaming of. The energy you project is your paint, your Will is your brush and Space is your canvas.  Remember this basic principle and miracles will be your science.

Warlock Asylum: What advice would you give to those newly interested in various occult subjects and other spiritual practices?

Ankhara Illiyantha: Always come back to your Center be it whatever you study.  Every practice is a manifested tool for your remembrance of your Divine Nature.  It is always about you reconnecting to the streams of knowledge.  You can read many books and act many rituals but you need to bring those inwards to decipher their true meaning for no higher truth can be comprehended by the human brain.  Do not remain on the principle that others have the keys you need for these are theoretical keys.  You can’t turn on your car with a theoretical key from a book; you need to forge it yourself for your car is unique. Remember, you are not a parrot but a Divine Consciousness embodied, a Creator of your own reality.  So take the tools to forge your keys and do not waste your time by worshiping the tools for they are not Gods.  Focus.  Purity of heart and mind are your ingredients for success.  Corruption is self-destructive.

Warlock Asylum: How has family life affected your spiritual practice, and how do you integrate such into your work?

Ankhara Illiyantha: By understanding that what surrounds us is a projection of our energetic fields and shaped by our Will we are able to transcend the idea of having to adjust to the world.  We adjust our world to us depending on what we believe is the best environment for our embodied experience.  Life is a spiritual practice as long as your Will is set for it to be so.  We need to give ourselves the precious silence to commune with our inner World.  The quiet every day practice of introspection which is also called meditation.  We need to reshape our world as our Hearts really intend it to be. If you take these precious moments of Silence and Quietness to go intoxicate yourself and be around unnecessary noise then the world will shape itself without your best intentions in mind.

A brave woman, a woman of the home is one who holds the sword.

A brave woman, a woman of the home is one who holds the sword.

Warlock Asylum: What challenges and obstacles did you have to overcome to walk on the path that you are living today?

Ankhara Illiyantha: The challenge of Self-Amnesia, which the majority of the beings on Earth now have to overcome.  Being around a multitude of sleeping Wills is a challenge but as a wise man told me; friction motivates growth.  Many of you might be acquainted with the animated series Dragon Ball.  In it the main character is constantly faced with a greater obstacle which creates friction and moves him to overcome with greater strength each time.  Thus so are the obstacles of life.  They are what you make them to be by the strength of you will and the purity of your heart and mind.

Wise words from the Sage Woman, may help cool the controversy about The Ivory Tablets of the Crow

Wise words from the Sage Woman, may help cool the controversy about the recent release of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow

Warlock Asylum: Over the past few weeks, a lot of controversy has surrounded the recent release of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, and the direction some prominent members of the Necronomicon Tradition are taking in view of such. What is your opinion of the Necronomicon Tradition? What is your opinion of The Path of the Crow as mentioned in the Ivory Tablets and the situation overall?

Ankhara Illiyantha: The conflict comes from lack of Center.  By that I mean when one stays within themselves and sees the projected world with an impartial mind.  The ones creating controversy externalize their own truth with a tool and use that tool as a stronghold for their path, in this case being a book.  It would benefit them to remember that this book was also written by a magician and went through the ritual of fire to come through as a common tool for many practitioners of the craft.  So were every other book that prevailed to this day.

If it doesn’t serve you then don’t bother with it.   No one is being coerced to convert into an Ivory Tablet’s practitioner.  It is a personal path and so should be given the proper respect for the brothers and sisters who wish to explore.  For the same reason it is not pleasant to have someone forcing you to believe in something it is also not pleasant to have someone forcing you not to believe in something.  If love and care are your motivators to convince someone to leave a path or join yours then send your love as energy with sincerity let go.  If you really care about your brothers and sisters that are going to a path that is not your choice do not condemn them for that will only drive you apart and it is not wise.  Be the best in you and all will fall into place.

The Necronomicon is a great tool for what I call the Inner Journey Initiation.  It is a treasure in a world where ignorance is king.

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow is a relatively new-found treasure by which it’s principles teach us to Remember our true natures and qualities.  It teaches us to free our minds from strings of dogmas and expand our awareness into enlightenment.

The "Ankhara" as seen in the Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition Series

The “Ankhara” as seen in the Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition Series

Warlock Asylum: Some of our readership have asked about your prominent role in The Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition digital-theatre series. Many of those posing such questions are probably unaware that some of the episodes were inspired by your advice and counsel, even supplying themes and plots for past and future episodes. You have been a “ghostwriter” for the series. How close does the character in the series resembles your true persona? What direction would you like to future productions move towards?

Ankhara Illiyantha: The Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition series have inspired me and brought many things to light.  It is a tool to help many look within themselves and the behaviors which are hidden within the mirrors of the mind.  It exposes the inner conflicts of personalities and egos in a revealing way.

It is hard for me to identify with my character although in the new series it resembles me better in personality.  One thing that helps me detach is the fact that my character has short hair and that’s something I wouldn’t do.

The characters are mostly archetypes based on real people but may not portray the people entirely.  It is made to bring to light some conflicts and keep records of the progress in our path as we journey into the mysterious world of the Arts.

I have unknowingly inspired the first series and recently taken a closer approach on its development as I believe in its potential to take the world of the Craft out from the slumbers of prejudice into a more acceptable view.  It is not only for the knowledgeable magicians but for the neophytes and curious wishing to adapt their lives with a healthier mindset; a mindset of freedom and self-worth.  It is a clever way to show all the practitioners that their only enemies are their inner conflicts and confusions.  We can’t hide in the dusty basement of ourselves anymore.  Trust comes from within.

It is a common thing to see brothers and sisters of the craft fighting each other in energetic wars which are founded on hurt egos and do not represent the truth of the matter.  They want to be better by comparing themselves to each other instead of improving by self acceptance.

Another common thing is to have many gather to psychically attack a group because one person is having a personal issue.  A whole group is so eager to gather in the name of hate but too lazy to feed the poor or free their minds.  It has always been about purity and integrity of mind and heart.  Love and you shall be Loved.  Hate and you shall create such vibration to manifest in your life.  It is self-destructive and not Wise.

I would like the future episodes to help the viewers in understanding themselves and their inner nature.  We need a School of Thought for the Age that is Dawning, an Age of Intellect and consciousness expansion.  We are here for each other.

Warlock Asylum: It has truly been an honor to finally get a chance to hear some of the wisdom and insight that you have imparted. What concluding thought would to share with our readers?

Ankhara Illiyantha: Find your truth within.  Do not waste your mind and time with distractions and bickering.  The power of the Magician lies within the Seat of the Heart and the Seat of the Mind.  Remember Silence is your ally and Remember Who You Are.

Papers in the Attic blog page would like to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer a few questions. We wish you all the best in your endeavors and look forward to enjoying some of the many themes you are responsible for presenting in the digital-theatre experience, and your work overall! Stay blessed!

Ivory Tablets: Dawn of a New Era- Now Available On Youtube!

Greetings! We are happy to announce another digital-theatre experience has been made available for viewing on YouTube. Have a great and blessed day!

Answering The Critics of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow With Historical Accuracy: A Defining Moment In The Necronomiocn Tradition

I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page, your home and resource for practitioners of the Simon Necronomicon mysteries and Sumerian mysticism.  We wish you all the best, as you climb to new heights of understanding and spiritual evolution. Please feel free to share your insights and critique by posting a comment. This is your home and we are all family.

In view of the many comments and criticisms that surfaced during one of our recent articles, I thought it would be good to review some points, which define the meaning and purpose of this blog page and the Necronomicon Tradition overall. In order to gleam the theme of this article, we found it best to list several points that delve into the heart of our intent in presenting this material.

1. I would first like to apologize to anyone who may have been offended by the material presented in our Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition Series. I must say that while these episodes may have presented some real life challenges that the Practitioner of the Necronomicon Mysteries may have met in trying to perfect their work, a lot of times I would present certain characters, like Amadi, Alric Thomas, Ashnook, Ankhara, and even Nightcaller, out of character to build anticipation for the next episode and to also reveal methods of overcoming conflict that may arise in one’s work. I would use these characters specifically because I have a working relationship and good friendship with them personally. Knowing their maturity, I figured they would not take offense to this presentation of their being, as we plan on creating new episodes showing their true nature and how they have evolved spiritually. It is quite a blessing to have shared in knowing them personally, and I must say that I have benefited from their experiences.

2. This blog page started off as a personal journal of my experiences. Though it was only five years ago, there weren’t too many resources available on the Necronomicon Mysteries. I wanted to do research on the energies that are presented in the Simon tome. This attracted others of like mind, some who worked with the tome before I did. It was good to learn from others, even debate with some. It was all a great learning process. The work of maintaining a page on the Simon Necronomicon taught me more about it. Later, I would ask frequent commenters, or those newly initiated if they would like to join the administrative team. Though we have similar experiences, others could benefit from others experiences. This would help them grow and develop too. It was then that the mission of the blog page began to change from a personal journal to a resource on those involved in the Necronomicon workings and those of ancient Mesopotamian mysticism. We would even feature articles outside the preview of these things, as it was still useful to the work, a community was building and a culture. So while some may try to imply that I am, or was seeking to draw attention to myself, my actions say something entirely different. We have posted information on the Simon work freely for quite some time. Others were invited to join the admin team. Whatever someone wanted to see in the Asaru Clan or the Necronomicon Tradition overall, they have and had the opportunity to present such, not just sit on the sidelines and criticize people. Bring to the table what you would like to see. It’s your Tradition too!

3. Problems began with the admin team. Any person who takes a position of leadership must ensure the needs of those who he/she are serving come first.  It’s not about posting stuff up because it makes you look smart. The important thing is that you have posted some information that can aid someone in their work. With this in mind, you have to be clear in your writing. Take into consideration that there are many people from many walks of life that your words may fall on. Always remember the one of the most important “godlike” qualities your empathy for others. I’ve heard all of the foolishness, and people trying to be a “tough guy,” both good and evil energies work in aiding others, primarily as their life function. That’s why they exist in a place outside of ours, for their consciousness is different. Follow the example of the energies you call upon for it will bring out that quality in you, ultimately.

4. The Necronomicon Tradition is not a religion. While many readers will agree with such logically, emotionally they act different, by promoting fear in those who walk this path.  Some practitioners have even been noted as promoting the idea that if you retire from the Necronomicon workings, something bad will happen to you, or anybody who speaks about the Necronomicon in this regard. While I have seen some misfortune by those who foolishly try to enact the rites in the Simon Necronomicon with disrespect, promoting this fear-based sort of thinking is no different from a Christian telling somebody that if they don’t believe in Jesus, they are going to hell. I have seen people criticize the Simon Necronomicon and live an enjoyable life. Dan Harms wrote an entire book, criticizing the Simon Necronomicon, and he enjoys traveling to other countries several times a year. Just ask yourself, when was the last time you had a chance to do the same? The purpose of the Simon tome is clearly stated in the work itself, which is to work as a “Gatekeeper of the Inside.”  Besides real  power is in freedom. Who wants to lock themselves into something that they can’t get out of and only work because there is no escape? That is stupid and to belittle the Mesopotamian pantheon and portray them with the same emotional qualities of the gods in the Abrahamic religions is a disservice. They are very loving energies. Get the Ann Rice movie schemes out of your head.

5. A lot of ignorance in these regards arises because people do not know, or understand what the real Necronomicon is. Fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft said that the Necronomicon was written in blood upon pages of human flesh. This is a metaphor for the human being, whose body is composed on flesh and blood itself. This is in full agreement with the Greater Mysteries. In the book, Magic: A Treatise on Esoteric Ethics by Manly P. Hall, we find the following:

“If man today knew of the god-powers that lie dormant within him, he would be the most dangerous creature in the universe..”

If the Necronomicon is the most-powerful system of magic on earth, it is only so because it resembles man, more perfectly than other systems. Man is a replica of the universe and the personification of it. It is through the work that man gets to know the different sides of himself. However, some practitioners of ritual, who have not relieved themselves of their Christian programming, will begin to create a god out of a grimoire, so that when one no longer uses a book, he goes insane. This is not due to  a curse behind the book, but because, he or she, fails to realize that they are the Necronomicon themselves.

If there is a “god” of the Simon Necronomicon, we can say that it is Dingir Enki. Yet, in the Conjuration of the Fire God, which is one of the first things we do in ritual, We say “it is not I but Enki, ” for the very same reasons we have just discussed. Man is a microcosm  of the universe, a miniature replica of the vast regions of space that he lives in. Indeed, he was created in “god’s image.” The exploration in the Necronomicon Mysteries is designed for the Initiate to use the Simon Necronomicon as a tool, a formula to unlock those hidden aspects of his/her psyche that relates to its heavenly power. The Mad Arab encourages us to walk to the furthest reaches of the stars. When applied with proper appreciation for the system, the Initiates will soon learn how to develop even greater technology, for this is what the Simon Necronomicon is, technology. Notice what is mentioned in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon:

“Crowley’s Magick was a testimony of what he has found in his researches into the forbidden, and forgotten, lore of past civilisations and ancient times. His Book of the Law was written in Cairo in the Spring of 1904, when he believed himself to be in contact with a praeter-human intelligence called Aiwass who dictated to him the Three Chapters that make up the Book. It had influenced him more than any other, and the remainder of his life was spent trying to understand it fully, and to make its message known to the world….but this is Crowley’s own NECRONOMICON, received in the Middle East in the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh,”

The purpose of our initiation and practice with the Simon tome is very similar to that of an engineer. In the beginning, and engineer must work hard in order to learn certain scientific laws so that he or she can understand how a particular technology works. This process also involves performing certain experiments and practical application of these “scientific laws,” so that one obtains a working knowledge of these things, so that potential engineer can witness these laws in action for his/her own self. After the engineer has become thoroughly familiar with these things, they can begin to create technology that is often times an improvement of the previous technology that they studied, or can accomplish a particular task with more accuracy. This is also the work of the Simon Necronomicon Practitioner. The Mad Arab writes the following in his Second Testimony:

Watch well, however, all that they do and all that they say, and write it down in a book that no one will see, as I have done, for it will serve thee well at some future time when thou wilt recognize them by their words or by their actions.”

There is an old saying in the Asaru Clan, that a teacher should teach his/her students to be greater than he/she is, so that the tradition survives. Initiation into the Necronomicon Current is our common foundation, our common ancestor, and new discoveries, new grimoires, mystical texts, ensures that this Tradition always remains one of growth and development. For a person to call himself a “magician” and swear by the power of one book the way Christians swear by the Bible is indeed the invention of a new religion, and the potential magician will soon find himself in the healing of believing in faith, rather than validation. We are supposed to work like a Justice League, all having a common foundation, but different powers due to our own exploration into the regions of the forbidden. No nation can grow if by the use of stagnant technology. New forms of esoteric technology by Necronomicon Monks and Adepts will ensure the survival of our Tradition. It is not an act of faith, but an act of true will in progress that will keep our tradition alive!

 

Rebuttal to Mister Suller and Mr. M and Other Critiques of the Ivory Tablets.

Papers in the Attic blog page was happy to present some startling new evidence validating our tradition in the recent article entitled, Research Into The Ivory Tablets of the Crow Reveal Connection Between The I-Ching and The Simon Necronomicon. Several comments were made in appreciation of the article, but there were, in particular two critics of the material, “Mr. M” and “Habban Sabbah Suller.” The remainder of this article will address some issues presented by these two gentlemen.

First, Mr. M asked a question that shows his inexperience in understanding the history of the great magical tradition that he claims allegiance to. Originally, The Cult of Nyarzir’s blog page had the banner “no god is the true god.” In one of Mr .M’s comments he attacks this slogan. here is what he wrote in a comment:

“So, if no god is the true god, Mr. Asylum are you saying that Tiamat does not exist? Does Allah not exist? Does Shaitan not exist? Does Ishtar not exist? Answer me, that!”

I couldn’t stop laughing, but I did supply the following answer:

“That’s a sincere question you have asked. “No god is the true god,” statement is a metaphor meaning that in our work we take that which is self-aware in us and merge with its source, which is pure consciousness. There are powerful forces on different planes and all of these forces are seeking to evolve to a higher state of consciousness as well. So the idea of limiting oneself in dedication to a force that could be deceptive in convincing one that they are the creator of all there is, or the spirit of a dead king that later became known as a god, and worshiping such, is not the purpose of our existence if we are to evolve. The Ivory Tablets clearly states that there is nothing wrong in communicating with such, but these should not be worshiped as a substitute for the force of pure consciousness, which so many religious and magical systems have done. That is all.”

The reason that I couldn’t stop laughing when I read Mr. M’s comment was that Aleister Crowley, said pretty much the same thing. Kenneth Grant spoke about this in his infamous work Magic Revival, Grant writes the following:

“When Crowley assumed control of the O.T.O., he chose as its motto Deus est Homo (God is Man), and in Liber Oz he declares “There is no God but Man.” It was to Man that his Manefesto was addressed, when in the middle of the Mediterranean in 1924, he declared Thelema (Will) to be the Word of the Law, in accordance with what had been revealed to him by Aiwaz in Cairo, twenty years previously.”

Maybe  Mr. M or Mr. Habban Sabbah Suller never read the works of Aleister Crowley and Kenneth Grant before, but there is no difference in “No god is the true god” and Crowley’s “There is no God but Man” statement. How unfortunate.

Mr. M continues on with his ignorant rampage by attacking another statement that I made, which suggest that a Book of Chaos was a book of freedom:

“So you made it up? The freedom to make up what you want. Crowley told us where he got his Book of the Law from. Grant chronicled his experiments. We know where Dee and Kelley got their material from. Yet, you are making *false* claims about where you got these tablets from!”

Interestingly, as was stated before, if Mr. M has read Kenneth Grant’s material a philosophy of this nature wouldn’t really surprise him. In Magical Revival, Kenneth Grants quotes the following from Crowley’s Liber Oz:

“Man has a right to live by his own law – to live the way that he wills to do.”

Mr. M, would probably take Crowley’s words out of context. See my statement, Crowley’s statement, or what’s even stated in the Simon Necronomicon, all has to do with Chaos magick, not under the modern definition, where anybody can do whatever they want. It is the ability to create an advanced technology, just like an engineer who uses the laws of science to develop “a new creation.” Chaos magick, in its true definition of the term, was an art that could only properly be engaged in by those who were adepts. It is not an art for the beginner. If you really think about the Mad Arab’s words in his Second Testimony, the idea of observing the Ancient Ones and copying what you see them perform in a book, would be considered to be a form of Chaos magick by today’s standards, but the Simon Necronomicon admits to such only after the Practitioner has been properly initiated.

Mr M. continues with his ignorant rants, which illustrate his lack of knowledge in even the Sumerian Mysteries. This is an excerpt from another comment:

“If it were truly Pre-Sumerian as you say, the Necronomicon betrays whether this book comes from a valid source. “The terrible offspring of the Ancient Ones may be summoned by the priest. These offspring may be called and adjured to perform what tasks the priest deem necessary in his temple. They were begotten *BEFORE ALL AGES AND DWELT IN THE BLOOD OF KINGU* (emphasis added), and MARDUK could not altogether shut them out. And this was taught by the priests of Babylon, who charged that these formulae may never be revealed to anyone who is not initiated into our ways, for to do so would be the most frightful error.”

If the offspring were begotten before all ages and dwelt in the blood of KINGU, then it is indeed a magick that existed prior to what we know of as “Sumeria”.”

If Mr. M really had knowledge of Sumeria, he would have then realized that the Tablets of Destiny were posed by the “Ancient Ones” prior to the advent of the Elder Gods. In one version of the Enuma Elish, the Tablets of Destiny, are said to be held by Tiamat and given to Kingu. It later tell us that these Tablets are the “power of Anu,” or the power of heaven. Something that could not be literally hung around ones neck:

“She exalted Kingu; in their midst she raised him to power.
To march before the forces, to lead the host,
To give the battle-signal, to advance to the attack,
To direct the battle, to control the fight,
Unto him she entrusted; in costly raiment she made him sit, saying:
I have uttered thy spell, in the assembly of the gods I have raised thee to power.
The dominion over all the gods have I entrusted unto him.
Be thou exalted, thou my chosen spouse,
May they magnify thy name over all of them the Anunnaki.”
She gave him the Tablets of Destiny, on his breast she laid them, saying:
Thy command shall not be without avail, and the word of thy mouth shall be established.”
Now Kingu, thus exalted, having received the power of Anu,”

Mr. M should also re-read his copy of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow and do some historical research. In the introduction of the Ivory Tablets we learn that the Cult of Nyarzir was a nomadic group of magicians and established esoteric schools of thought all across the world. Science now confirms this in several areas of the world. Close to a decade ago BBC News posted an article entitled, Oldest Star Chart Found. in the article we find the following:

“The oldest image of a star pattern, that of the famous constellation of Orion, has been recognised on an ivory tablet some 32,500 years old…The claim is made by Dr Michael Rappenglueck, formerly of the University of Munich, who is already renowned for his pioneering work locating star charts painted on the walls of prehistoric caves…The tablet also contains mysterious notches, carved on its sides and on its back. These could be a primitive “pregnancy calendar”, designed to estimate when a pregnant woman will give birth…It was left behind by the mysterious Aurignacian people about whom we know next to nothing save that they moved into Europe from the east supplanting the indigenous Neanderthals.”

This is quite an interesting discovery, especially when the Enuma Elish describes the Tablets of Destiny as ‘the power of heaven.’ Historically, we also have The Ivory Tablet of Zet, which is described by History Graphic Design in the following words:

“Ivory tablet of King Zet

Over five thousand years old, it is the earliest know example of Egyptian pictographic writing which would later evolve into hieroglyphics.”

These “Ivory Tablets” were well known in ancient Mesopotamia. A Dictionary of the Ancient Near East, edited by Piotr Bienkowski, states:

“a high class set of twelve ivory leaves, with gold hinges at alternate edges, was prepared for Sargon II of Assyria and recovered from a well at Nimrud….the book had apparently contained over 7500 lines of an encyclopedia of omens.”

It seems that science now confirms the words written in the Introduction of the Ivory Tablets, and to some extent, the Cult of Nyarzir left their remains among the prehistoric civilizations of man.  Mr. Hasan Suller steps into the discussion a bit later with his criticisms:

“The I-Ching and the Necronomicon have no connection to the Ivory Tablets. From your recent video’s you discredit the Simon Necronomicon and state may things that are false this maybe to try to bring people to your recent book or new cult. The purchase of your book was a good story but it is discredited in the introduction. You claim Spare used it and John Dee mention it in his proposal to Queen Mary. Again clearly a false claim. It has many holes within it that prove it is just a money or ego grab. I can tell you really don’t work with the I-Ching or the Necronomicon because if you did you would not be posting such madness.”

Like Mr. M, I found the comments of Hasa Suller interesting, as well as, comical. To say that the Ivory Tablets have nothing to do with the I Ching or the Necromicon is a blasphemy all to its own. Mr. Suller’s statement soon answered in this discussion:

“The Ivory Tablets relates a lot to the I Ching. Personally, I don’t think you’ve read the Ivory Tablets for you to say something of this nature. Max Kultenmark in Lao Tzu and Taoism, wrote:

“The union is also said to be a union of the lunar and solar principles, for in the I Ching, k’an and li represent the moon and the sun.Mythology has it that a crow (Yin) dwells in the sun and a rabbit (Yang) lives in the moon, where it grinds up the ingredients of the elixir of immortality.”

Mr Suller, like Mr. M, seem to be missing the point. he continually goes on a rant about whether or not John Dee had access to the ivory Tablets of the Crow, as well as, other occult personalities without realizing that the history listed in the Introduction, is a history kept by one of the students of Marie Laveau, who shared this sacred text with us. It is not a history that was written by the editor Warlock Asylum. Interestingly, Boria Sax, in the book entitled, Crows, writes the following:

“Marie Laveau, a powerful sorceress in the nineteenth century who was known as the ‘Voo-Doo Queen of New Orleans’, has at times allegedly returned from the dead in the form of a crow.”

This is a widespread legend surrounding Marie Laveau and may have something to do with the Ivory Tablets. Since Mr. Suller’s previous arguments were easily answered, he seems to remain ever vigilante in his pursuit of ignorance. He continues:

“I think you channeled this work and took bits here and there.”

Mr. Suller has a very big imagination. It is quite flattering to think that i could channel such a work, but the forces at play behind a work like the Ivory Tablets of the Crow is even beyond my apprehension. Let’s just take the title as an example, The Ivory Tablets of the Crow.

Here we see that the terms “crow” and “H P Lovecraft” are both equivalent to 1033 in Jewish Gematria. Therefore, the title Ivory Tablets of the Crow is related to Cthulhu Mythos title, The Whisperer in Darkness by H.P. Lovecraft.

Another interesting feature that can be found in the title, Ivory Tablets of the Crow, is that “ivory” is an element that finds correspondence with the Moon (Nanna). A crow finds it correspondence with Saturn (Adar). The importance of this was discussed in our article on the Ancient Art of Gate-Walking, which discusses how the lunar and Saturnian aspects were the beginning and close of the initiatory rights in the history of the Greater Mysteries.

The color of ivory is white and a crow is black. We find that the practitioner is told to adorn himself in the same colors in the Book of Calling by the Mad Arab:

“And the Frontlet of Calling, and the Standards of Calling, shall all be of fine cloth, and in the colours of NINIB and INANNA, that is, of Black and White, for NINIB knows the Outer Regions and the ways of the Ancient Ones, and INANNA subdued the Underworld and vanquished the Queen thereof.”

This is quite interesting since the Simon Necronomicon also mentions that the Watcher is called Bandar, which is composed of two Sumerian terms. According to the Sumer Aryan Dictionary by L.A. Waddell, the term BAN refers the ‘child-creating goddess Venus,’ and DAR refers to the King Dar, a Sumerian King who was also known as Adar.

It is great to discover so much information can be held in a book’s title. I am sorry Mr. Suller, but I couldn’t think of such things. I think Mr. M, since you sarcastically called me Batman, maybe you can learn a lesson in all of this.

 

Research Into The Ivory Tablets of the Crow Reveal Connections Between The I-Ching and The Simon Necronomicon

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. if this is your first time here, please take this opportunity to look over some of our previous articles, and do not hesitate in sharing some of your insights by posting a comment. Thank you for visiting our page. Stay blessed.

It has been an interesting year so far. I would like to send my thanks and appreciation to all those who supported the release of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, the translation of the Dup Shimati, or the Tablets of Destinies. While we have received a lot of positive support, we have also received some questions concerning the manuscript and many of the forces mentioned therein, and how to validate their authenticity and etc.

Questions like these are always entertaining and in finding the answers, we do learn something new. Much of the information in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow is based on a gematria that was used by a pre-Sumerian civilization that are only known by the name, The Cult of Nyarzir.

This means for one to truly understand the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, they must understand the importance of gematria, for this is even how the Simon Necronomicon was constructed. Many times people try to validate the material in the Simon tome, by means of historical research and etc. This approach is only 25% of what it takes to understand the Simon Necronomicon. In order to get a full grasp of the Necronomicon by Simon, it is essential that the Initiate has a grasp of gematria.

Gematria is the science of assigning a numerical value to a word, or phrase,  in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other. Gematria has a very huge place in traditional Judaic studies. However, the Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition will find that much of the secrets contained in the Simon Necronomicon are based on English gematria.

English gematria has been around for quite some time. It is based on the old English alphabet of 24 letters. It is well-known and its use has been documented well back into the medieval period., but to an interesting turn some years ago. Dr. J.R. Church, in studying the number 666, developed a gematria system for the English alphabet based on the ancient Sumerian civilization’s method of calculating. The Sumerian system was based on a root of six as opposed to ten. It is believed that the Sumerian civilization is the most ancient after the Flood and their system of counting the very first after the Flood. The Sumerian system can still be seen in our use of the foot (12 inches = 2 x 6) and yard (36 inches = 6 x 6) and in our sexagesimal measurement of time (60 seconds, 60 minuets, 24 hours = 4 x 6).

Since English gematria is based on the Sumerian numerical system, the Initiate can unlock many of the mysteries in the Simon tome. This could also be compared to the pre-Sumerian civilization, the Cult of Nyarzir, as they influenced the later Sumerian tribes. Let’s take a look at one example of this:

ADUENI appears in the Sumer Aryan Dictionary by L. A. Waddell. On page 6 of the said work we find the following:

“The Lady Queen-Seer Woman”

In other works by Waddell, he identifies ADUENI with the Goddess Athena. Interestingly, we find this phrase “adueni” in the Simon Necronomicon:

“Prepare, then the bowl of TIAMAT, the DUR of INDUR, the Lost Bowl, the Shattered Bowl of the Sages, summoning thereby the FIRIK of GID, and the Lady SHAKUGUKU, the Queen of the Cauldron. Recite the Conjuration IA ADU EN I over it, and build the Fire therein, calling GBL when thou dost, after his manner and form.”

Here we can see that ADUENI is an assigned conjuration, associated with the rites of Tiamat, but more importantly, it is preceded by “IA.” If we take the said term through the process of English gematria, we will discover one mystery, of many in the Simon Necronomicon:

Adueni has a value of 324 in English Gematria and 54 in Simple Gematria. (Simple Gematria is numbering a letter based on its place in the alphabet.) However, the meaning of ADUENI takes on a more important meaning when we add the prefix “IA” in front of the word:

Here we see that IAADUENI is equal to Tiamat, both have an English Gematric value of 384, and a Simple Gematric value of 64. This also verifies something quite amazing, for it shows a correlation with the I-Ching.

The I Ching, which is composed of 64 hexagrams, or six-line figures, 6 x 64 = 384, which is exceptionally close to the number of days in 13 lunar months (29.5306 x 13 = 383.8978), and that maybe the I Ching was originally an ancient Chinese calendar.

According to the sums we find in English and Gematria, we find the English and Simple Gematria. This actually verifies a connection between ancient Sumer and China, which actually validates H. P. Lovecraft’s description concerning the Cthulhu Cult, that was said to centered in Arabia with some immortals living in China. We may begin to see who Lovecraft was referring to:

Another example, can be seen in the history of the Mad Arab. Many people have wondered about the identity of the Mad Arab and this can found also through English Gematria. First let’s look at the definition of the Mad Arab in Enochian:

Enochian     English Meaning
Mad               God or Your God
Ar                                           That
Ab                 Daughter of Light

From the above Enochian translation, we can easily see that the term Mad Arab means Your God that Daughter of Light. It would seem that this definition would possibly imply that the Mad Arab, may just be the Watcher of the Simon Necronomicon, the existence of which was made real in another work by Simon entitled Dead Names, page 306.

We can see here that the Mad Arab in English Gematria is 240, and in Simple Gematira 40. There is another word that also have these same values:

The term Bandar, also have the same value as the Mad Arab! Interestingly, BAN is described in the Sumer Aryan Dictionary as “the child-creating goddess, Venus.” Dar is defined as King Dar, or Thor, King Adar, whom Waddell identifies as the first king of Sumer after the rule of the “aboriginal Chaldeans.”

Since the terms Bandar and Mad Arab have the same numerical value, it would seem that the Mad Arab is Inanna/Ishtar. Her example on this realm and the said rites are similar to how Jesus set an example for Christians. We can confirm the Mad Arab as Ishtar even from a Lovecraftian perspective:

Other comparisons also clear up a lot of the mysteries in the Necronomicon text. In the Table of Correspondences in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction, we find:

Out of Space The Abyss Absu; Nar Mattaru

It is clear that we find Nar Mattaru as meaning Out of Space, but we can determine other relative meanings from the English Gematria.

The correlations are two numerous to mention in all, but I thought the reader would find this to be a very interesting comparison as well:

“I have traveled among the stars, and trembled before the Gods. I have, at last, found the formulae by which I passed the Gate ARZIR, and passed into the forbidden realms of the foul IGIGI.”

The values of Arzir are 432 and 72. These are the same as Aiwass:

Based on the English Gematria the terms Aiwaz and Asaru are relative to each other. If we remember, the Simon Necronomicon calls the “eye upon the throne,” Asaru.

 

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow

Now that we have discussed how the use of English Gematria, a science based on the Sumerian numerical system, has unlocked some of the mysteries of the Simon Necronomicon. we should now see the same with the pre-Sumerian Ivory Tablets of the Crow. In the Magan Text, we read the following:

“The verses here following come from the secret text of some of the priests of a cult which is all that is left of the Old Faith that existed before Babylon was built, and it was originally in their tongue, but I have put it into the Golden Speech of my country so that you may understand it.”

The ‘cult of the Old Faith’ is discussed heavily in the Atlantean Necronomicon,, which scholars normally describe as the Cult of the Dead, or ancestor worship. Yet, we find another interesting factor about the pre-Sumerian Cults in the Atlantean Necronomicon:

“Most of the ancient myths concerning Ereshkigal seem to imply that ERESHKIGAL left on her own free will. It seems that after Kur was struck, the Watchers battled alongside Kingu, but were defeated and became subject to the authority of the Elder Gods. Anzu birds were often depicted as deceptive in Sumerian legend because they were the original gods that had been made subject to the Elder Gods. This is similar to howMarduk was promoted as the head of the Babylonian pantheon by priests who saw the need to compose the Enuma Elish. Evidence of this can be seen in the myth of ISHTAR and the Huluppu Tree. This account describes the original occupants of the “tree” as Lilith (LAMASHTU), an Anzu Bird (PAZUZU), and the serpent. Legend has it that with the aid of Gilgamesh, ISHTAR was able to set up her throne in the Huluppu Tree, and Lilith, the Anzu Bird, and the “serpent” were forced to flee into the wilderness. Lilith is an archetype of the Atlantean Goddess, LAMASHTU.. The Huluppu Tree Myth reveals the primordial rites that existed before the advent of the solar gods, which Gilgamesh’s presence in the myth indicates.”

The Atlantean Necronomicon analyzes the Huluppu Tree Myth and reveals how an older rite existed in ancient times, much older than what we call the Elder Gods of today. In fact the gods involved in the rites were Pazuzu and Lamashtu. Barbara G. Walker in Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets:

“Lamashtu, “Mother of Gods” worshipped at Der as a serpent with a woman’s head.”

Walker states the following on page 904:

“The Akkadian Goddess NINHURSAG, “She Who Gives Life to the Dead,” was also called “Mistress of Serpents” as yet another form of Kadru or Kadi.Babylon’s version of her made her a dark twin of the Heaven-goddess ISHTAR, calling her Lamia or LAMASHTU ..Cylinder seals show her squatting, Kalilike, over her mate, the god PAZUZU, he of the serpent penis. As another Lord of Death, he gave himself up to be devoured by the Goddess.”

I am sure that many may wonder how does this information relate to the Ivory Tablets of the Crow. It is important in the fact that the promordial gods and goddesses, were sometimes seen as demons by the later Babylonians, who gave them titles that were somewhat derogatory. This can be scene in the example of Humwawa, who is defined as a monstrous beast, which is a derogatory description on the Elamite king Humban whose name means “master of heaven.” The Ivory Tablets of the Crow restores the proper vibration of these primordial deities as we will now see.

First let us define the Cult of Nyarzir, the ‘cult of the Old Faith that existed before Babylon was built:

Here we see the value of the primordial Atlantean god Pazuzu is 666. Now we know for sure that English Gematria was used when translating the Simon Necronomicon. In the Introduction, under the topic, The Horned Moon, we read:

 “PAZUZU, the Beast, was brought to life by Aleister Crowley, and the Demon walked the Earth once more.”

The Beast has the number 666. This profound insight is discussed earlier in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon:

“When Crowley professed to have passed the obstacles, and crossed the Abyss of Knowledge, and found his true Self, he found it was identical with the Beast of the Book of Revelation, 666, whom Christianity considers to represent the Devil.”

So Crowley found he true self to be identical to the Beast, which in Horned Moon subtopic in the introduction is equated to Pazuzu. Pazuzu in English Gematria has the value of 666 and the Simple Gematric value of 111. Now we find that the Ivory Tablets of the Crow describe this pre-Sumerian ‘cult of the Old Faith’ as the Cult of Nyarzir:

Here we see that Pazuzu has the same value as the term Nyarzir, which is also 666, and 111. Therefore the Cult of Nyarzir is The Cult of Pazuzu.

Reflecting back on the information cited earlier in the Atlantean Necronomicon, we learned that Lamashtu was described by Walker as the “mother of the gods.” She was equated to Ninhursag and Ereshkigal, who are all said to roar, signs of a solar goddess:

“..she descended into the Underworld and defeated her sister, the Goddess of the Abyss, Queen ERESHKIGAL (possibly another name for TIAMAT).”

We can see that both Ereshkigal and Lamashtu have the same numerical value. However it can also be said that this aspect of a primordial solar goddess can be found in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow. Johuta is described as a “daughter of heaven” and as a solar goddess in the Tablets’ lists of correspondences. Simon, editor of the Necronomicon, may have adjusted certain spelling to fit a more positive perspective of the goddess Lamashtu, for in the Urilia text she is described as Lamashta:

Based on the English Gematria, the Nyarzirian goddess Johuta, has a nature similar to Ishtar, but also of Lamashta. Another interesting find is in the Introduction of the Ivory Tablets:

“we find in their writings a story of a magician named Xuz,”

In the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction we find:

“THOTH in Coptic is the name given to the Egyptian God of Magick and Wisdom,”

This shows us that Xuz and Thoth were the same person, or class of priest, sorcerers, and etc. Yet, there true identity is revealed when we look further into the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction:

“TAHUTI, who was evoked by both the Golden Dawn and by Crowley himself (and known to the Greeks as Hermes, from whence we get “Hermetic”). AZAG-THOTH is, therefore, a Lord of Magicians, but of the “Black” magicians, or the sorcerers of the “Other Side”.”

The word Tahuti seems to be associated with “sorcerers of the “Other Side,” of Black Magicians. Let us see why:

)

Here we see that the terms Tahuti and Akhkharu have the same value in English Gematria and Simple Gematria, meaning that these Black magicians were like the Akhkharu. I would like to remind the reader that it is not a normal occurrence to find the same values in both English and Simple Gematria.

It seems that the mysticism of the Ivory Tablets seems to describe the world before that still exists in the divine realms. In explaining further, the Magan Text brings out something very interesting:

“He split the sundered TIAMAT in twain And fashioned the heavens and the earth,”

This portion of the Magan Text refers to the Battle between Marduk and Tiamat. Tiamat is spit in two, one part is used to create heaven, another part is used to create earth and man. Later in the Simon Necronomicon, we read:

“Know that TIAMAT seeks ever to rise to the stars, and when the Upper is united to the Lower, then a new Age will come of Earth, and the Serpent shall be made whole, and the Waters will be as One, when on high the heavens had not been named.”

This means that is some respects, metaphorically, the world is unnatural as divided, or our consciousness is divided. The Mad Arab writes:

“And a man may cry out, what have I don’t, and my generation that such evil shall befall me? And it mean nothing, save that a man, being born, is of sadness, for he is of the Blood of the Ancient Ones, but has the Spirit of the Elder Gods breathed into him. And his body goes to the Ancient Ones, but his mind is turned towards the Elder Gods, and this is the War which shall be always fought, unto the last generation of man; for the World is unnatural.”

One half of man’s consciousness hangs in heaven, and another upon earth in essence, we look today at only one-half of Tiamat. This is interesting for in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow it states:

“Beyond the stars, beyond the darkness of the night they dwell. Into the realm of light they reside in stillness.”

The Ivory Tablets refer a science existing before Tiamat was split in two. This would mean that Tiamat’s values would be doubled in the consciousness of unity.

384 x 2, 64 x 2, would equal a gematric formula of 768 and 128. These numbers would represent the unity of consciousness, when the “waters are one.” In the Ivory Tablets of the Crow’s Introduction, it states:

“Historical records reveal little about this cult who accredited their knowledge to the Ninzuwu, a race of beings that shared a “mystical technology” with early man.”

)

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow talk heavily about the Ninzuwu, it is a race and rank of the adept and those who oversee the work. The science of the Ninzuwu is from a perspective or “a time when the waters are one” This can be seen in the values that are given for the Ninzuwu, which are 768 and 128, double to that of Tiamat, showing that both sides of the whole are one in the state of Ninzuwu.

The amazing thing about all of this is that in the Simon Necronomicon, a slight variation in historical deities reveal a great numerical connection. In the case of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, we see a complete mystical tradition that in no way could be made up, but appear to be the formulae for the Gate of Arzir, mention by the Mad Arab. Below are a few correspondences between the Simon Necronomicon and the Ivory Tablets of the Crow:

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles, and do not hesitate in sharing your insights and experiences by posting a comment.

Well, it has been quite a long journey from beginning to end. I am remind of the words in the Magan Text:

“For what is new
Came from that which is old
And what is old
Shall replace that which is new
And once again the Ancient Ones
Shall rule upon the face of the Earth!”

Over the past few months we have had the delightful experience in sharing some of the hidden workings, the experiences of practitioners of the Simon Necronomicon by several digital-theatre presentations. We are happy to announce our final episode entitled, Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition Part 7: A Gate of Arzir.

This is the seventh and final episode of this classic, yet legendary experience. some may find it useful t o watch all seven episodes from start to finish to see what can be gathered from such an experience. We would like to that each and every one of you for the support you have given, by sharing your comments and thoughts with us. Below is a link to the final episode. Stay blessed:

Important Announcement Concerning The Ivory Tablets and The Necronomicon Tradition

Welcome to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please be sure to review some of our previous articles. We also look forward to hearing some of your experiences and insights, for we are all family. Enjoy!

Paper in the Attic blog page has an information resource for Initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition and practitioners of the Simon Necronomicon for over five years. It has been an exciting and insightful journey.

Recently, we announced the release of the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, a pre-Sumerian mystical translation of the purported Tablets of Destiny. We would like to thank all have supported this effort, thus far, and obtained a copy of the manuscript.

Others have tried to evaluate how does the Ivory Tablets of the Crow fit in with the workings of the Simon Necronomicon and etc.? This is quite understandable since this blog page is dedicated to ancient Mesopotamian spirituality and the Necronomicon Mysteries. Actually the path of the Ivory Tablets is a road separate and apart from the Simon Necronomicon. Based on such, we thought that it would be best to keep the Papers in the Attic blog page’s focus on ancient Mesopotamian spirituality and the Necronomicon Mysteries.

For those who wish to explore the path mentioned in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, we have created a new blog page. Here you will be able to find detailed information about the text and the Art of Ninzuwu itself. We have posted up our first article that explains exactly what the aims are of this path and its ultimate goals. Please stop by and visit:

 The Art of Ninzuwu

Initiates of the Cult of Nyarzir can find resourceful information to aid them in their goals concerning this path. Papers in the Attic blog page will continue to provide insightful information into the practices of ancient Mesopotamian mysticism.

Have a wonderful day!

It is with wonderful delight that Warriors of the Necronomicon Tradition Part 5: The War of Etluzini; is now available on YouTube.

Part two of this episode will be posted up shortly.

I hope you find this digital-theatre presentation entertaining and enlightening. We send each and every one of you, are deepest blessings!

Dumu Abzu-a’s Library – Invocation of the Gods of KUR against the Evil Spirit

The pantheon of KUR

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some our previous articles and share in the joy of being by sharing your insights and experiences. Stay blessed.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Let me present to you yet another gem from my personal library which is uniquely constructed by myself. It is an incantation that invokes the Gods of KUR to protect the magician from the evil spirits that escaped into the Upper World. I must warn thee though…

THIS IS NOT AN INCANTATION THAT IS MEANT FOR BEGINNERS, DABBLERS, AND OTHERS WHO HAVE NO PERSONAL CONNECTION TO THE DEITIES AND GREATER DEMONS OF KUR! THESE FORCES ARE NO JOKE AND DO NOT PLAY AROUND. CALLING ON SUCH IS AT THINE OWN PERIL AND THE FOOLISH AND THOSE THAT HUNGER FOR POWER WILL BE STRUCK DOWN BY THE VERY FORCES THEY SEEK TO BIND AND COMMAND.  TAKE CARE!

Here follows the text:

Spirits and Gods of the Underworld!
Thee I invoke, O Spirits and Gods of the Underworld!
I have resigned myself at your feet and bring forth my lament!
Because the sorceress has bewitched me,
And the enchantress has banned me,
I cry unto Ereshkigal and Namtar!
I cry unto Nergal and Ishum!
I cry unto Pazuzu and Humwawa!
I cry unto Ninghizhidda and Bidu!
Hurry, O mighty Spirits and Gods of the Underworld!
Turn round the Evil Spirit! Protect thy servant! Kill the Enemy!
Let me be clear of sorcery through your names!
Whatever evil that is in my body, my flesh, and my sinews,
Seize it, and take it down to the Land of No Return!
Tear away whatever evil may come to cut off my life!
Rise, O Evil Spirit, and go forth unto Ganzir!
The Galla, may they devour thee wholly!
In the name of the great gods of the Underworld I exorcise thee!
That thou mayest depart!

Today we will allow you to gain a little insight into the life and thoughts of an extraordinary individual, known as Brother Etluzini.

Dumu Abzu-a: Greetings Brother! To the members of the inner circle of the Asharu Tradition you are already well known, but it would be nice for our regular readers if you could tell a little bit about yourself.

Etluzini: Greetings Brother! Well, I was born under the number 777 as a great great grandson of the famous Sitting Bull, who was a Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux holy man, and a great tribal chief. I am a born and raised shaman, a healer and herbalist, a master of the Qabalah, a well known exorcist, and a high priest of the covenant of Babylon which was founded in 1992 and which currently has three temples, in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Knox. I am also well versed in the use of various languages and the translation of cuneiform script.

Dumu Abzu-a: Very impressive Brother!

Etluzini: Thank you!

Dumu Abzu-a: The paranoia that took hold of people concerning the Mayan prediction that the world would end on december 21th 2012 was not completely unfounded, as we have obviously entered a new and magickal era. What is your view on this?

Etluzini: Surely there have always been doomsday predictions through the millenia but when looking at the Maya one needs to think about their culture. For one, the calendar ending never meant doomsday. It was just the end of the age of Pisces. And two, the Maya were a very spiritual people. They were well aware of the new awakening humanity was to embark on. The Maya also said that this age was when the gods returned to man. This being said, many are already finding these events coming full swing. The gods have been actively reaching out to us and we are accepting them once again. Our eyes are open and we fill our hearts with their spirit.

Dumu Abzu-a: Well spoken, like one whose eyes ARE open, and have been for quite some time!

Etluzini: Yeah, I’ve been around for quite some time.

Dumu Abzu-a:  Can you tell us some more about the Covenant of Babylon, and how this fits within the Asharuic paradigm?

Etluzini: The Covenant of Babylon is a Sumerian/Babylonian temple founded in 1992 with 3 temples in Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh, Knox, and Oil City. It is a non-profit organization which holds regular meetings and embarks on group recreational trips. This temple was created to promote the religion of ancient Mesopotamia and to teach its members the culture, language, and magic of its people. Though our practices are based mainly on the Sumerian Tree of Life, the Gate-Walking process of the Asharuic paradigm is a big part of the teachings and initiation. Truely both systems are Yin and Yang when placed side by side. The DinGir are truely amongst all.

Dumu Abzu-a: Amazing! It is a great thing to see two such organizations join hand in hand to promote and advocate the teachings of ancient Mesopotamia. The DinGir are amongst us indeed!

Etluzini: Aye, it is a great thing indeed!

Dumu Abzu-a: In my experience not all people are too fond of the Asharuic culture, trying to discredit our initiatory tome, attacking our ways, and seeking our downfall. How do you view such individuals and, in your opinion, where do such individuals fit in the grand scheme of things?

Etluzini: I find people too wrapped up in biblical dogma. Our rites go back to the Babylonians and even before them. Babylon is given a bad name in the Christian’s bible and is a stereotype passed on through the ages to cover up the divine knowledge of the gods. No matter what we do there will always be those who want to seek our downfall. They accept their life living under the control of society and have no desire to control their own lives. They are slaves. Personally I feel that the Asharuic culture will continue growing as more people are finally becoming awake and are seeing with true eyes for the first time. Those that don’t  have free will and have no desire to truely ascend….they will be swept under the carpet. We are at one with everything around us and the rules of society are beneath our feet. We will be the beacons of light in this world that they all turn to  when all they believe in fails them.

Dumu Abzu-a: Amen to that Brother! It is a true blessing and honor to be part of this all.

Etluzini: I agree Brother.

Dumu Abzu-a: How do you perceive the direction that the Tradition takes?

Etluzini: The Tradition’s direction is very strong in my opinion. If starting with the Necronomicon as most have, its a very straight forward system. When one looks at the actual clay tablets and the translations that are becoming plentiful we can see even clearer as how all religions of world have come to take this sacred doctrine into their tradition. The Age of Aquarius is now here – the gods beckon across the veils – and many are waking up and hearing their call. Though the information is scattered about and still much locked away in museum basements, we of the Asharuic culture have taken it upon ourselves to gather these works together and to once again bring to light the teachings and the guidance the Great DinGirs offer. We have put order into chaos.

Dumu Abzu-a: Do you have any advice for those who seek to pursue this path?

Etluzini: To those who pursue this path, be true to yourself. Research and study is key in this endeavor. Above all else cleanse and keep the body purified. You will want to make this part of your daily routine. I pray and honor the gods every chance I get and call out to them in every empty moment. This is a way of life and a serious path of dedication. I believe those who embark on this path will fall in love with it as I have.

Dumu Abzu-a: Haha!! I know I have! It is an amazing path to walk!

Etluzini: Yes it is.

Dumu Abzu-a: Got any last words for the readers?

Etluzini: When one enters the path and embraces it, they will feel many changes within themselves. Do not be afraid but face what you feel. Your mind will come to experience true strength (wisdom) and you will come to develop power of the self as I have. You will have visions and hear voices. And spirits will visit you for the light of your spirit will shine bright. It may be startling at first but learn from these things that which is beneficial. Know that the terms right hand and left hand path are just two sides of a coin but they are but a single coin. Embrace both.

Dumu Abzu-a: Wise words Brother! The reader would do wise to keep them in mind. I thank you for your time and appreciate that you gave our readers the chance to get to know you better. May the Dead rise and smell the Incense!

Etluzini: No problem Brother! May the Dead rise and smell the Incense!

Masonic & Scientific Thought Compared With The Ivory Tablets of the Crow

The ivory Tablets of the Crow may give science the edge it needs

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow may give science the edge it needs

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some our previous articles and share in the joy of being by sharing your insights and experiences. Stay blessed.

There has been quite a bit of talk, even some curiosity, concerning the historical release of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, which is a translation of the legendary Sumerian Tablets of Destiny. Different than what has been expounded upon when the text was first released, the meaning of The Ivory Tablets, its origin, and its use is known. We will discuss some of these factors shortly.

However, I must express a slight disappointment in how the text has been received. Personally, I think a lot of this is due, to a more superstitious approach to magic and is transformative power, rather than a mystical and scientific one.

Recently, I have heard reports of some practitioners experimenting with the “darkness,” as if it some source of power, like those who play video games or what have you. I thought it might be good to clarify a few things concerning such “darkness.”

One of the best perspectives that I have read concerning the matter of the “dark arts” can be found in Freemasonry. Manly P. Hall, in the book Magic: A Treatise on Esoteric Ethics, states:

“During the first half of this fourth globe, The Great Ones came to man to strengthen him for his choice and to give him basic instructions through which he should learn to redeem his soul. We know these demigods now only as mythological characters; but they were the ones who labored with the human mind while it was in the making, and planted therein seeds of discrimination, which is the ultimate redeemer of human reason.”

Hall’s statement clearly emphasizes that he true Great Ones, sought and seek to help man evolve to a higher state of consciousness and certain cosmic laws were put into place to serve that end. This raises a question that many may have pondered.  What about the great demonic beings of legend that are often banished in magical workings, even those of remote antiquity? Hall continues:

“The ancients claimed that there was a hierarchy of demons for each of the sins of man, and that in reality, the demons were, in most cases, the incarnated principles of these sins. By this it is understood that the animal excesses of man build, on the lower planes of the astral word, strange creatures, some resembling debased human beings, and others shaped like animals, lizards, snakes, and other reptiles…We seldom realize that our passions and hates create these demoniacal beings in the superphysical world, but this is one of the secrets of black magic. Every evil or debased thought and emotion of man helps to build these tearing, rending creatures, the innate qualities of which become, in the hands of those who know…It also seems part of the plan that those who chain these demons shall themselves, fall victims to their own slaves,”

Hall eloquently states something that is widely known by true technicians of the Greater Mysteries, that our emotions, thoughts create demonic beings on the astral plane. These beings can act in accord to their own will and if the magician is not careful he/she will become a slave of these things, posing as a Great Old one, or what have you. The adherents of the Greater Mysteries in ancient times knew these things, and invented guidelines and laws to protect the environment from the production and increase of such beings. Based on such, we can see that the primary focus of the priests of old was in fact purity.

“The beginning of every journey is always in this time now. For many years I struggled between the sides of darkness and light. There is no freedom in these choices for they are not choices at all. Can an infant choose between its mother or father?” –The Ivory Tablets of the Crow

It is important that we also understand that true darkness is different from the false sense of darkness that has claimed so many occult practitioners. Hall continues:

“For ages, man has labored under a misunderstanding. He has called the perversion of occult power black magic. This is an improper use of the word black, for black does not mean evil. Black is the basic not-color of all things; it is the source of all being, and represents the body of Absolute Intelligence. All consciousness and light are born out of chaotic blackness,…The Children of the dark Birth who labor in blackness of this substance, molding it into myriads of unseen and unmeasured forces, are not evil. They are the sons of Saturn (Satan), the Black father, who, like the very darkness of chaos itself, must swallow in time all his creations and, in so doing, bring them back to life again from the death men call creation. We are all born out of this dark abyss and have no right to call it evil. It is the parent of gods and men…The devil, the archetype of misuse, is not a son of Saturn, but a son of man and the false darkness of earth.”

Hall clearly indicates that “blackness” is not evil, but is the source of all things and of which all things must return. He continues:

“There is a false darkness and a true darkness. The true darkness is the womb of Light; the false darkness, the perversion of the light that pours out of true darkness. Natural darkness is the basic principle of things, while the false darkness is the result of debasing the power of the angels of Satan.”

The thoughts expressed by Manly P. Hall are also evident in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, where we find the following:

“Beyond the stars, beyond the darkness of the night they dwell. Into the realm of light they reside in stillness. Without need of the elements, for what is it? It is consciousness. The mere reflection of these words caused that which is self-aware to stare at itself in darkness. Yet, it remains whole.”

One sure way the occult practitioner is able to determine whether he is operating with either the true or false darkness is by intent. Common sense would dictate to any sincere practitioner that in order to gain entrance into the higher realms of consciousness , one must struggle and exert effort. The qualities of virtue must be called into being. Another thing would be phenomenalism. Hall continues:

“Do not experiment. In spiritual things experimentation is usually fatal, and unnumbered students have gone to untimely graves and lunatic asylums, or have become obsessed while they were trying something. Keep away from phenomenalism; there is nothing in it for the true student. He is not seeking to gain salvation, but through his soul. Phenomenalism never appeals to the higher side of the nature, but, at most, satisfies only inquisitiveness. As of old, so today, the cry is seldom “save souls,” but is usually “show us miracles.”

The pseudo-occultist is usually one who has deceived himself in believing that he/she is on the right path, but is actually going in the opposite direction. These types may seem sincere but enter occult workings with no true intent other than to see “what happens.” It is with this same that they can be found experimenting with some force, but with no true aim. The result is just a bunch of hopping around, seeking something that will instantly bring them power. They become infatuated with talk of strange events and experiences that have happened to themselves or others. You rarely hear these types talk about, or place focus on, the inner transformation that must occur before progress can be made. This is due to the fact that they are not in contact with any true transformative power, but deception.

When The Ivory Tablets of the Crow were released a few days ago, many questioned what civilization was responsible for such a great work? The answer is in the Ivory Tablets itself:

“Know that every civilization comes into this world in the manner of the Unborn. Each city exists in a place not known to time and then descends upon the realm of man as a kingdom, through some act of war, or a great migration. Do not worship these things like men do, for it is a forbidden art which keeps the soul bound to useless things.”

Another aspect of phenomenalism, is that of imitation. Many may learn of the magical workings contributed to a particular civilization and instead of using such as a transformative device, they become infatuated with the civilization and seek to imitate its ways and culture. The Ivory Tablets of the Crow informs us that we should ‘not worship such things.’ This part of the text also suggests to the reader that The Ivory Tablets of the Crow is not formulated around the culture of an earthly civilization, but exists on a higher plane of consciousness.

Many present-day occult schools based their workings and understandings on planetary, solar, stellar, or kabbalistic rites, even the qliphoth falls under these. However, in terms of a material manifestation, it seems that the Ivory Tablets of the Crow give indication of a priesthood that worked heavily in what is known by some as a White Hole. Wikipedia examines this topic further:

“A white hole, in general relativity, is a hypothetical region of spacetime which cannot be entered from the outside, but from which matter and light have the ability to escape. In this sense, it is the reverse of a black hole, which can be entered from the outside, but from which nothing, including light, has the ability to escape. White holes appear in the theory of eternal black holes. In addition to a black hole region in the future, such a solution of the Einstein field equations has a white hole region in its past.However, this region does not exist for black holes that have formed through gravitational collapse, nor are there any known physical processes through which a white hole could be formed.”

The Ivory Tablets of the Crow states:

“Listen to my words carefully. Every battle is a creation. There is only one palace. It is the Dragon, but it is also called the Gate of Death in error by many who do not understand. You still do not understand. Look up at the heavens and see the darkness of the night that surrounds you. Is it not lifeless? While it may be spoken about in a manner that is common, it is still the home of the Wanderers and the Fiery Ones. Beyond this darkness is the place of eternal spirit in light.”

According to some scientific theories, matter emerges unpredictably from a white hole (unlike a black hole, into which matter is drawn). An example of a white hole is the original singularity of the Big Bang. We see evidence of this In the Ivory Tablets of the Crow:

“Before the creation of man there existed a world beyond worlds, whose inhabitants built a great dwelling place in the Seas far beyond time.”

We stated earlier that The Ivory Tablets of the Crow is not an experimental text. Its properties and usage are known. A few of us have made an oath of silence and will pass on the information willingly to those sincere individual in an organized manner.

Additionally, we are in the process of restructuring the blog page to facilitate all. I wish you a pleasant day on your journey.

Good Day! Welcome to Papers in the Attic, a blog page for practitioners of ancient Mesopotamian magic, mysticism, and the workings of the Simon Necronomicon. Please feel free to review some of our previous articles. You can also subscribe to our page, post comments, and share some of your insights. We are all family here, enjoy!

It is an exciting time as much has been revealed in the year 2013. It is a time where certain magical, mystical, and spiritual formulas are coming to light. I am excited, as well as many others in our sacred tradition, about the translation of the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny, contained in the manuscript entitled; The Ivory Tablets of the Crow.

Any of the mystical practices contained in the text require that the Initiate use the language of the Vasuh. Over the past few days, Warlock Asylum, Rafael Barrio, myself, and a few others, have been working with understanding each of the characters in this language and what energies are radiated from them. What I found is a very deep aspect of a primal, but clean and bright, building blocks leading to initiation.

Interestingly, the Vasuh language, and its use, activates awareness during dreams, but also reveals what actions one has taken to prevent certain spiritual evolution to say the least. For example, many of our readers have worked with the initiatory rites listed in the Simon Necronomicon. We know when working with Dingir Nanna, how our dreams are influenced. In the case of working with the Vasuh language, the dreams are vivid and also reveal how our own actions affect our experiences, including the subtle energies that we may not be aware of emanating.

I also find that through the use of this language and being initiated into it, I no longer feel drained, but revitalized and a lot cleaner. It is a very primordial energy, but clean. My intuition is more aroused. I can also see some flaws in other magical practices after working with the Tablets.

It definitely works to create a state of lucidity in day-to-day life, but this is just the beginning. I haven’t yet performed any of the workings, just been memorizing the first nine symbols.

Good Luck!

Ivory Tablets of the Crow: A Translation of the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny Is Now Available on Amazon!

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please review some of your previous articles and share your thoughts and insights. It is a beautiful tradition indeed. Enjoy your stay!

Another landmarkevent in the history of the Necronomicon Tradition and Sumerian studies alike.

Another landmark event in the history of the Necronomicon Tradition and Sumerian studies alike.

Well we are about to approach the dawn of another spectacular event in the history of the Necronomicon Tradition, the translation of the Dup Shimati, the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny. This ancient translation is now available on Amazon. Before the release of this landmark manuscript, I thought it would be good to review a few points.

From my work with the text so far, I must caution the reader that this is not an experimental text. It is a stellar energy, somewhat beyond the term primordial, but it is a clean energy useful for self-transformation. If one chooses to attempt the initiatory rites contained in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow, follow the methods as close as possible.

The translation of the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny, known to the prehistoric Mesopotamia culture as The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, seems to suggest that the gods of the Sumerians were more than likely the founders of an ancient Native American culture as well.

After briefly working with the text, I found many similar principles in the prehistoric Mesopotamian culture that are also preserved in Native American culture, especially in terms of the crow symbolism and how it is perceived.

It seems that there are now gates within gates in regards to the Necronomicon Tradition. Some have found solitude working with The Oracle of Enheduanna. Others have laid exclusively to the rites found in the Urilia Text. Some are content in just self-initiation and the calling of the Elder Gods. This too, may develop into a path all of its own, that can be pursued by those with our Tradition and outside of it.

So far, after employing some of the preliminary methods of the Tablets, I can say that it is a strong current and very “otherworldly.” It is something that must be studied by the lifetime! Below is a link where this priceless manuscript can be purchased:

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Let me present to you a prayer for purification, which I found in the work First Steps in Assyrian, by L.W. King, on page 237 and 238.

Here follows the prayer:

ilu ištari-ia
nap-li-si-in-ni-ma like un-ni-ni-ia

Here follows the English translation:

O my goddess,
look with pity on me and accept my supplication!
Torn away be my sin,
forgotten be my transgressions!
Let the ban be torn away,
let the bonds be loosened!
My sighing let carry away the seven winds!
I will rend away my wickedness,
let the bird to the heavens bear it!
My misery let the fish carry off,
let the river sweep it away!
May there take it from me the beast of the field,
may there wash me clean the flowing waters of the river!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Let me present to you a penitential psalm (or lamentation) to DinGir Ishtar, which I found in the work First Steps in Assyrian, by L.W. King, on page 226 and 227.

Here follows the lamentation:

Here follows the English translation:

O mother of the gods,

who makes the green herb to spring up,
O lady of mankind who created all things,
who guides the whole of creation.
O mother Ištar,
whose side no god can approach,
O exalted lady,
whose command is mighty!
A prayer will I utter;
that which to her appears good may she do unto me!
O my lady,
from the day when I was young much to misfortune have I been yoked!
Food have I not eaten,
weeping was my nourishment!
Water have I not drunk,
tears were my drink!
My heart never rejoiced,
my mind was never bright!

What Will The Forthcoming Translation of the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny Mean For Enochian & Necronomicon Practitioners Alike?

 Good Day and welcome to Papers in the Attic blog page, a resource for practitioners of ancient Mesopotamian magic, mysticism, and spirituality. Thank you for visiting this page. We are all family here! Please enjoy your stay.

It’s been quite some time since my last post on Papers in the Attic, but 2013 is a monumental year. Over the past six years Ms. Taoka, Warlock, myself and a few others have worked on a translation of the Dup Shimati, commonly known as the Sumerian Tablets of Destiny.

The text was obtained by Jabir ibn Hayyan during his visit to the ruins of ancient Babylon. He later realized that the manuscript he obtained was only a copy of a much older work, but described a pre-Sumerian cult in great detail, probably existing in the Ubaid period.

Hayyan’s manuscript, The Ivory Tablets of the Crow was translated into Latin by Robert of Chester. Few placed any value on the contents of this document, with the exception of Marie Laveau, who purchased the manuscript during her stay in Paris in 1818.

Many of the details about this text are featured in the wonderful Introduction of this work. It it is quite possible that Papers in the Attic will turn its full attention to the practical use of this pre-Sumerian culture today. We look forward to hearing you input on the matter. I thought it would be nice to post Warlock Asylum’s editor notes on the manuscript, which appear in the second half of this post. The Ivory Tablets of the Crow will be released in the beginning of May 2013.

A preview of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow book cover.

A preview of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow book cover.

“According to Jābir ibn Hayyān, the Cult of Nyarzir inscribed the knowledge of their mystical tradition on fifteen tablets of ivory that they called “The Crow.” The Ivory Tablets describe what seems to be an initiatory journey into what is known today as pure consciousness. Obtainment of this divine state required that one hold intercourse with several “dark stars,” or what the mystics of Nyarzir called “crows.”

The text begins with the tablet entitled, The Birth of the Crow, which is a personified-stellar epic that illustrates how our native star, the Sun, came into being. Strangely enough, the Cult of Nyarzir referred to our Sun as a goddess and in their initiatory rites used it as some sort of mirror that reflected the inner “crow” of the initiate. This seems to indicate that the Nyarzirians held intimacy not with the literal Sun in the sky, but a dark star that existed behind the literal Sun.

The next tablet is entitled The Nine Books of Dreams, wherein nine glyphs of what is known as the Vasuh script are given. These characters represented “shadow chakras,” which allowed one to access a universe of dark matter when put into certain formula.  The Editor would like to advise the reader that these glyphs greatly resemble characters from the Mandaic alphabet, which seems to be the source of some of the symbols appearing in the Simon version of the Necronomicon. Interestingly, the Editor, and several other members of an occult group, worked with the Vasuh characters, in what was called the Asaru Lessons. Little did members of this group know that the origin of these glyphs came from the Ivory Tablets, which the Editor had been working on for over seven years. The experimentation with the Vasuh glyphs, resulted in the occurrence of strange phenomena and certain heightened states of awareness. Fortunately, we now understand how these glyphs were used in Nyarzirian Mysteries.

The third tablet is entitled The Call of the Guardian Shamuzi. This portion of the text is focused on acquiring an assistant from the stellar realms as a safety measure in the rites that follow. The Shamuzi was seen by the Nyarzirians as an assistant, but not in terms of a “watcher.” It was considered to be the astral body itself, which when activated, worked for the “crow.” Another interesting feature about this prehistoric Mesopotamian term shamuzi, is its resemblance to the Akkadian shamu, which means heaven and the Sumerian zi, meaning spirit. This is a clear indication that the legacy of the Cult of Nyarzir did influence the Sumerian culture.

The fourth tablet is entitled The Sword of the Ninzuwu. The Ninzuwu appear to be adepts whose bodies are made out of dark matter, and exist in a world before time. The Cult of Nyarzir implemented methods so that one could evolve to a state of being as that of the Ninzuwu. This may explain what happened to the gods of the ancient Sumerians and their sudden disappearance. The gods of the Sumerians, based on their human characteristics, were most likely the adepts of the Cult of Nyarzir, who acquired use of a technology that was none other than ‘otherworldly’ to say the least.

The next few tablets describe the mystical-magical practices that were required for the candidate to do in preparation for The Baptism of the Ancient One, the title of the thirteenth tablet. These series of tablets conclude with The Testimony of the Crow, tablet number fifteen. According to Nyarzirian philosophy, this tablet was considered to be a revelation of the present moment, which was to be applied by the newly-born initiate to the teachings of all ages.

The Editor would like to thank everyone involved in the publication of this work, and those who supported the Papers in the Attic blog page. *We assume no responsibility for any adverse effect that may result from the use of this text in either magical or mystical workings.

It is possible that current publication of The Ivory Tablets of the Crow may be the revelation needed to herald the new era into being. This work is not for the novice, but can be of benefit to all in their spiritual work.”

Incantation of the “Temple Not Exorcised”

Babylonian Temple

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and do not hesitate to share some of your experiences and insights by posting a comment. Stay blessed!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

A few years ago I wrote a post concerning the small exorcism which is known as ENU SHUB. The post contained a translation of this exorcism, which unfortunately was incomplete, due to damage to the small tablet which had long been in possession of Father Scheil. Recently, however, an excellent discovery was made by Brother Amadi, that revealed an even better  version, and translation, of the exorcism ENU SHUB, which undoubtedly had served as Simon’s main source of material.
The source is mentioned in the Necronomicon’s bibliography & suggested reading list, under the title: “Recueil de Travaux Relatifs a la Philologie et a L’archeologie Egyptiennes et Assyriennes, Vol. XXVIII. Liv. 3 et 4“. On page 216 of this interesting work we find not only the transliteration and translation of the ENU SHUB incantation, but we are also given the text in cuneiform.

We can see, however, that Simon used only a part of this incantation (for obvious reasons), which is known as: “An Early Chaldean Incantation of the “Temple Not Exorcised“, the full version of which here follows:

é-nu-šub
am gig absu
kiš é-gig-ga
GAR šag da si-si-e amar-a-da-a
dingir UD kalama si-ni-ku
dingir NINAB gù-ù-ne-xr-ra-ni-ku
gà-a  šu  šag-mu-ku
tu en é-nu-šub
mun gab sig.
inim-inima mun-šu-a-tum da kam.

The translation reads as follows:

“O house not exorcised,
o black bull of the deep,
o universal house of darkness!
This bread offering, filling the heart with strength, with this sick young one
before his Sungod who fills the land with plenty,
and before his goddess NINAB who pronounces the benediction
placed, unto the granting of my petition
let it redound!” – (Rubric:) The incantation of the “Temple not exorcised”:
with salt the solution of the magic spell procure!
The incantation is of the class named: Carrying salt in the hand.

All credit goes to Brother Amadi, as he was the one providing this excellent material.

Thanks Brother!

The Second Edition of The Atlantean Necronomicon is Now Available!

Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles and do not hesitate to share some of your experiences and insights by posting a comment. Stay blessed!

I am happy to announce the release second edition of The Atlantean Necronomicon: Veils of Negative Existence. Over the past few weeks we have been working hard to correct any and all typos that occurred in the previous edition of the book.

The 2nd Edition of The Atlantean Necronomicon is now available.

The 2nd Edition of The Atlantean Necronomicon is now available.

The Atlantean Necronomicon is also available at a more affordable price. This is due to our agreement with the Amazon book publishing company Createspace, which will also make the book available on Kindle. Prior to this time, we were getting charged above the manufacturing costs to make copies of the book.

Thankfully, we no longer have to submit our material to such companies at such an outrageous price. While many of our subscribers and practitioners of the Necronomicon Tradition bought the first edition at a higher price, owners of the first edition will be happy to know that their copies contain information that is not available in the second edition. So please do not feel that your copy is void.

I would like everyone who has purchased a copy of The Atlantean Necronomicon and we do hope it has been an aid in understanding the many complex dynamics of our Tradition. If you have the time, please post some of your thoughts and comments about The Atlantean Necronomicon on Amazon. The link to the second edition is as follows:

Thank you very much!
