As the modern Mardukite movement gears up for its tenth active year, the long-term plans for Phase-10 are being divulged for the first time from the Mardukite Office and Council of Nabu… and all of them seem to involve the use of meditation, personal metaphysics and what many have called “magic” — the same practices which were at first held exclusively for remote communication with interdimensional or otherwise “alien” intelligences — will be explored and executed by the Mardukite Chamberlains in global efforts to force open portals, doorways and gateways for the New Age, bringing specific energies and frequencies into this realm that have previously been denied. Such almost seems like something from the pages of science fiction alone, but this is not the case. And in preparation for such undertakings for the following years, we turn our attention to the lore from the past where elements of such aspects may be best observed and even exploited.
“Arcanum” by Joshua Free, 10th Anniversary Edition
…One example we might turn to regards the subject of KHORONZON, here explained in this Mardukite NecroGate blog post as excerpted from the new 10th Anniversary edition of ARCANUM : THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM
by Joshua Free. While the archives and publishing array of the Mardukites has grown considerably in the past decade, it was the ARCANUM work that first attracted many early subscribers of the Mardukite underground.
KHORONZON… A powerful malignant force interpreted from the Enochian-Kabbalah system. Sometimes spelled “Choronzon” or “Coronzon,” the name refers to the “Fallen One,” or Apocalyptical Dragon, known in Enochian language as “telec vovim” or “Death Dragon.” Most scholars interpret this primordial force as “the Devil” or “Satan,” while Gnostics equate it with the Ialdabaoth energetic current. In the Necronomicon and ancient Sumerian-Babylonian tradition, Khoronzon is specifically defined as KUR, or Tiamat, the “first form” or “archetypal dragon” that leads the hordes of Ancient Ones. All traditions point to a force that is currently being kept beyond or outside of our time-space by the Gate to the Outside.
Leave it to Aleister Crowley to break through the gates of the Universe. Instead of using the Triangle of Solomon for Goetic evocation, a method used widely by ceremonialists for conjuring to physical appearance (typically within a mirror), Crowley traced the Triangle of Solomon in the sands of the Algerian desert in 1909, formed the space as a nemeton, stepped within the confines and conjured the spirit of Khoronzon into himself. Previously, Crowley had encountered the entity when he was exploring the developmental system of Aethyrs (which he skryed from the thirtieth to the first) working with one or two of the dimensions a day. At one point, Crowley finds himself stuck on a rung of the Ladder of Light. To go further would mean to break the seal to the Gate to the Outside from within his own mind, sharing an astral existence with the forces of Khoronzon. Of course, Crowley went ahead and did this anyway, and it changed him for the remainder of his life.
It is possible that Aleister Crowley did more than simply open the Gate to the Outside from within his own mind. Many spiritualists believe that when he did so, he unleashed many malignant forces into 20th Century civilization. This may have been a predetermined event. The Enochian System was “discovered” by John Dee and Edward Kelley, but they never successfully employed the system themselves, and were actually warned not to (by an angel named “Ave”). Then, 500 years later, Crowley appears, claiming to be the spirit of Kelley in a reincarnated form, and he effectively uses all of the Enochian Keys to perform his famous ritual working, his interpretation of the Great Work.
“Arcanum” by Joshua Free, 10th Anniversary Edition
Astral lore within the high magickal tradition sometimes makes references to places or spaces of “not” and “void” that exist between other aethyrs and dimensions of existence. The abyss represents the unknown, the most frightening and challenging state of mastery capable prior to the finality of Ascension. Sometimes the Dweller on the Threshold is not malignant, merely a guardian of sorts. In the case of Khoronzon, the entity exists between the aethyrs beyond all reasonable sensory perception. Legends suggest that there are still worshipers of the Ancient Ones, ever seeking to allow these forces to manifest in the Mid-Branch planes of human existence. But according to the apocryphal texts and prophecies, this final battle of “Sky Dragons” is inevitable.
Protection from the “Death-Dragon” requires a significant feat of magickal ability, perhaps the entirety of the Great Magickal Arcanum. The individual must exist within an established shell or strengthened Merkaba, with the personal energetic system (aura and chakras) strengthened and balanced from within a body of light. The belief is that forces kept behind the Gate to the Outside will represent a catastrophic event for natural existence. Some lore suggests the unnatural undoing of creation, the “un-creation,” a power allegedly held in the Tetragrammaton, the “Word.” The best advice for the seeker is to embrace the Clear Light within and become as a beacon of Truth to dispel the darkness…
