“Within post-Christian era mystical accounts, such as we see with the Medieval and Dark Age era grimoires of the period, the magick and traditions are reflective to a ‘polarity’ that does not actually exist.”
— Joshua Free, Liber 555
WHAT IS REAL??? — the entire idea behind ‘devil worship‘ and ‘satanism‘ (or the entire ‘left-hand’ interpretation of reality, as a whole) is entirely dependent on the existence of these beings as they are generally understood – something which only came about as a result of the Judeo-Christian level of consciousness that came to occupy the masses.
[This mardukite necrogate blog is officially excerpted from Liber-555 by Joshua Free, published by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press as both “Necronomicon for Beginners: Unveiling the Secrets of the Simon Necronomicon“ or “Stargate to the Abyss: The Mardukite Guide to the Simon Necronomicon” — also available in the Year-4 anthology “History of the Necronomicon“ or the mega-anthology “Necronomicon Gnosis“.]
Prior to this ‘introduction’ of the ‘devil’ by Christian standards it would have been completely impossible to have proper ‘devil worship‘ or ‘satanism‘. The entire mythology that people are most likely to know regarding these matters is Hebrew and Christian in origin, making suggestion toward an understanding of the world based on a moral or ethical dualism that is not at all present in the traditions and writings of the more antiquated ancient world.
“Humans have always had a predilection to ‘patron’ one face of divinity over another. Such is programmed into their being and similarly the way in which ‘order’ was first introduced to the most ancient of the modern human civilizations. The idealism of monotheism is not as prevalent in the ancient world either.”
— Joshua Free, Liber-555
While all mystics and spiritualists understood the concept of the ‘unifying’ and ‘supreme’ force that tied all existence together, they also understood that such did not
make a direct ‘physical’ and ‘singular’ presence in the material ‘level’ of perception encountered everyday. Therefore, there was no confusion about the nature of the ‘divinity‘ held by ancient men in their encounters with the ‘ancient gods’.
“The idea that the Necronomicon emphasizes ‘darkness’ or that it is an ‘evil’ book all stems from the idea of it reflecting a pre-Christian ideal from the ancient world that immediately is dubbed ‘pagan’ or ‘satanic’ when reflected in a Judeo-Christian light.”
— Joshua Free, Liber-555
If the NECRONOMICON is ‘evil’, then it would be ‘evil’ in the same light as all ‘neo-pagan’ reconstructions including Celtic Druidism, Norse Shamanism and obviously any of the pantheons and cultural traditions being revived by Wiccans and members of other ‘sects’, ‘societies’ and ‘orders’ in the occult realm of society.
Most of the ‘forbidding’ nature connected to the NECRONOMICON comes first and foremost from the ‘air’ that it carries, remnant of the literary styling H.P. Lovecraft attached to it and then secondly, from the overtones given to the ‘occult’ in the 1970’s for the release of the Simon Necronomicon – and even the very marketing of the book as that name and the ‘dangerous’ and ‘forbidding’ aura that the title carries…
