Up until the current MARDUKITE efforts and work of Joshua Free, few of the publicly visible “New Age” writers and occult spokes-people really had much to say concerning the SIMON NECRONOMICON – many of them wishing it would just go away, or at the very least, that people would stop bothering them about it.
Needless to say, in the post-Lovecraftian world it was, up until the MARDUKITE efforts, the only of the ‘possible versions’ available to the public that was of ‘true’ and ‘authentic’ merit in regards to a historical tradition. Many people criticized the SIMON NECRONOMICON for not being Lovecraftian enough – which was interesting, since the same people also said that the book had been invented by Lovecraft.
“The debate over the title of the work has never been satisfactorily resolved by or to anyone. The use of the term
by Lovecraft already comes from questionable sources (presumably his own dreams) – and why it should appear on an allegedly 7th-8th century manuscript is also unsettling, even assuming such to even be true. We have no real reason to believe that the Simon work should have held such a title, nor is the book ever referred to as such in its corpus. Therefore, the title itself may have been fabricated.” — explains Joshua Free in “Crossing to the Abyss: Unveiling the Secrets of Simon’s Necronomicon“

“It may be the manifestation of a tangible book – wholly obscure for its time – with the title across the front: Necronomicon – is what really launched the success of the book (contents aside). For many, the chances to own and possess such a legendary work was a dream come true. But as with many dreams and wishes, the dreamer does not always know what is for their own higher good. As soon as the Necronomicon was celebrated or coming into being, it was just as quickly renounced for its existence – and not simply by the right-wing and others you would normally expect, but by the same pulp-fiction fans who rejoiced in its arrival!”
~ Liber-R, Necronomicon Revelations.
This current discourse (Liber 555) is an expert commentary on the Simon Necronomicon as it appears – meaning a bastardized tradition emerging from the catacombs of ancient “Mardukite” Babylon. What we do not see evident, as we should expect (and clearly what threw many people off the track) is the lack of Lovecraftian themes in the Simon Necronomicon. Any mention or similarity within the text of the Simon work as compared to the ‘stories’ of H.P. Lovecraft is most likely the ‘creation’ of the modern editors in order to market their Mesopotamian Magic as the Necronomicon.
“For the moment, the current truth seeker will simply have to take the work at face-value. We can concur that the semantic title – Necronomicon – may very well be the creation of an early 20th century writer and that no such book, as he describes it, may exist verbatim. Assuming this, we might be quick to disregard any and all resources that bare this title – something which our own critics are often likely to do – but this is again, folly – and the human spirit should not be so easily ‘led about’ in their understanding based on the ‘languages’ and ‘title semantics’ adopted.”
In these types of post-Christian era 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. For example, the entire idea behind ‘devil worship’ and ‘satanism’ 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. 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.
