“Most classifications of the ‘Otherworld’ include both an ‘overworld’ and ‘underworld’ that exists ‘outside’ or ‘beyond’ the confined parameters or ‘perceived reality’ capable to humans. It is for this reason only that it is considered ‘other’…“
—Joshua Free in NECRONOMICON GRIMOIRE (anthology)
The OTHER is not separate ‘matter’ in the sense of what most people envision as dimensions or “physical” layers. The veils as we perceive them simply represent filters that keep us from experiencing the All-as-One for the benefit of an individualized existence.
These “fragmented” veils do, however, have some ‘attributes‘ whereby they were acknowledged or defined in awareness as being separate in the first place. In the original division of ‘control’ or ‘authority’ in the universe was between four distinct parts:
The only materially visible realm in this list (for the sake of ‘human perception’) is the Depths which humans interact with as the ‘physical’, condensed, reality around them.
Notice that the Depths are also home to the “Underworld”, which is also divided in a visible and invisible dualism: the “underground” that is physical beneath the ‘surface’ world and the “Underworld” proper, which connects the ‘Other’ with the ABYSS…
One commonly overlooked facet is that the ‘all-encompassing’ All-as-One entangled and interconnected aspect of the universe can be found within and as all existences and perceptions of existence. This means that the ‘Other’ is directly connected (by some realization) to all ‘perceived levels’ and all ‘sentient intelligence’ in the universe; whether it be in the Heights or Depths or in the between – it is there.
On the initial pathworking via the LADDER OF LIGHTS, the self-honest initiate is exposed to a battery of ‘tests’ or ‘rays’ involving energetic currents…
These currents are likewise akin to specific color ‘frequencies‘, celestial bodies (planets) and notes of music (among others) that esoteric priests and magicians have worked to ‘correspond’ to them after adopting the original archetypal (ancient religious) magic systems from Mesopotamia – and specifically ERIDU (by way of ENKI, MARDUK and finally NABU).
Emotional stimulus of the ‘Underworld Initiation’ is very similar – though the ‘lights‘ and ‘colors‘ are all but washed out completely and the Observer is left with bleak and abysmal visions if they are unprepared. “Fear” neural-chemicals will distort the reception of these experiences – a typical concern for all non-adepts who venture into these advanced efforts.
“Those of us who are drawn to the quest are those of us who are propelled by ‘personal demons’, and they must be met or materialized. For, after the ‘personal demons’ have been mastered, other ‘demons’ await – The Gods of the Other Side, the Ancient Ones.”
