“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Only the dead have seen the end of war.”
Sadly, it is only when manifested art and literary creations are brought out of the “shadows” that it becomes the subject of public scrutiny – in the public – in the realm of the light: where the work does not belong in the first place…
This NecroGate blog post is extracted from Mardukite Liber R, recently published by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press in its second edition as “Necronomicon Revelations – H. P. Lovecraft, Kenneth Grant, Aleister Crowley, Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows & Simon Necronomicon: An Anunnaki Conspiracy” by Joshua Free. This new edition includes literary excerpts from the later cycle Mardukite Liber 555.
When the Simon Necronomicon was first released, a very select few were privy to this ‘type’ of understanding concerning a truly archetypal, pre-classical and pre-Christian methodology – a root system by which many other branches of the tree were later formed and perceived as separate, whether because of semantics or their locale in time and geography. Even those supposed occultists and New Agers at that point had very little background in the mythos being dealt with – which was not at all Lovecraftian, or even Sumerian as many other believe, but Babylonian!
Based on Mardukite Babylonian research, the Necronomicon paradigm is a very serious subject, well beyond the scope of Lovecraftian fantasies, that those of us who have been “blessed” to be involved in its necessary consciousness-changing return for modern times, take very seriously. Unlike many of the Necronomicon critics out there who simply scream “hoax” to anything that bares the title, the current Mardukite institution is more sympathetic toward the paradigm shift provided by the Simon contribution.
It is not Sumerian in origin as many thought and as its own editors profess. While it is true that Sumerians occupied the space geographically linked to its birth-place, but their tradition is not actually evident in the work other than what was absorbed into the later tradition that the Simon work is actually based – Babylon.
The idea that the Necronomicon tradition is “nondenominational” (as its Simonian editors relate) is also a false assertion. It is clearly laced with the Mardukite-specific spiritual politics found strongest in Babylonian traditions and literature, which are often mirrored in Egypt. Among these, of course, being the centralized veneration of MARDUK-RA as the “Lord of the Gods,” something entirely absent in the previous original Sumerian Tradition.
Following the idea presented in the Lovecraftian work more than the actual content drawn from Mesopotamia, the Necronomicon was presented as that all-too-familiar long-lost sorcerer’s “black book,” the “most dangerous and powerful” on the planet. In some ways, the hype is justified. The work was certainly monumental for its time, and even remains a cornerstone today, although its efforts have since been surpassed by the work of the Mardukite Research Organization.
Very few, even those who had studied cultural folk mythologies and other pagan pantheons revived by the “mystical movements” of the last centuries, had gained any access to or understanding of the ancient Mesopotamian methodologies that predated all the rest. This change in human consciousness was not only monumental, but intentional – an integral part of a larger picture where spiritual forces have indeed been directing the course of many events in recent past. Among these were some many profound ventures in the 1970’s that bridged the 60’s to the 80’s via visions and manifestations that some might have never conceived of prior. The music changed. The media changed. The very colors being perceived in the world changed – more real, surreal and yet wholly artificial.
A new Babylon – a new Mardukite age – was rising…
The technological age was counter-balanced with an extreme sense of “fantasy” and “spiritual occultism,” such as human civilization had not seen for a very long time. It was a necessary program to be followed to temper the rise of the electronic gods – those which have been raised to supremacy by their human creators. Feeling that the Old Gods have left them, the humans have felt this overwhelming need to raise another in its place – this time, by their own creation – or so they think. It was not until the fantasy enthusiasts and Lovecraftian Necronomicon readers started getting together with the science-fiction and Sitchin-eqsue circles in the late 1970’s that the “mainstream population” outside of the orders like the Golden Dawn or O.T.O. were given a chance to understand what was already known in the underground for thousands of years – the existence and nature of the Anunnaki!
