A Living Temple – Introduction to Secuntra Nexion

Understanding The Nexion

 

Nexion, in a simplistic sense, is an esoteric term that describes

 

[…] a specific connexion between, or the intersection of, the causal and the acausal, and nexions can, exoterically, be considered to be akin to ‘gates’ or openings or ‘tunnels’ where there is, or can be, either a flow of acausal energy (and thus also of acausal entities) from the acausal into our causal Space and causal Time; a journeying into the acausal itself; or a willed, conscious flow or presencing (by dark sorcery) of acausal energies.

 

Basically, there are three main types of nexion. The first is an actual physical nexion. The second type of nexion is a living causal being, such as ourselves. The third type of nexion is a magickal creation: that is, some form in-which acausal energy is presenced or ‘channelled into’ by a sinister Adept.” [1]

 

As said above, a particular type of Nexion is the human being, another type is a form (of any kind) in which it is channelled acausal energy with a specific intent. One of the formative experiences of the Sinister Initiate if they are following the initiatory Seven-Fold Way with commitment see them establish and run a Temple/group/nexion for a certain length of causal time in order to obtain experience in ceremonial magick, in manipulation of people and in order to live a few roles/archetypes essential to their personal development.

 

The External Adept (the stage/grade in which usually is undertaken this task) will have to choose two ways for the newly established group (usually, this decision is taken when the group has already been started):

 

  1. The Temple/group/nexion is for the exclusive use of the External Adept, members recruited are mostly used by them in order to obtain experiences.

     

  2. The Temple/group/nexion has an Aeonic aim and as such aims to realistically guide its members toward Adeptship and beyond.

The Temple/group/nexion for the exclusive use of the External Adept is limited in time and after a certain period of causal time it is usually disbanded. The Aeonic Temple/group/nexion has a longer lifespan and holds a supra-personal awareness, not limited to the ego of the person(s) who runs it. When the External Adept is near to the end of their stage, there may be a different and more profound consciousness and an appreciation for being a member of a living tradition and also a deeper insight on the Aeonic importance that can have a small community which lives and is prepared to die for a common Logos.

 

The Satanic Temple in practice describes in microcosm one of the most important magickal aims for the immediate future: the establishment of an esoteric community. […] Such a venture made real, would take magick into an entirely new phase, away from the dying, urban scene of the present: it would re-interpret magick as the most profound way of living. […] To reiterate, this Great Rite of natural magick will allow a move away from the ‘post-modernism’ of present Occultism towards a new phase where individual lives can be dedicated to a higher purpose. Those who have been denuded of real power by the System can now begin to create History – all it requires is strength of Will. For the Magickian, there could be no greater Quest.” [2]

 

Moreover, the creation of a genuine Temple/group/nexion (i.e., with supra-personal aims) is a rare event, because it requires people who are prepared and ready to face and overcome the numerous ordeals placed on their way; it means persons who have consciously undertaken an Initiatory Way that lasts a lifetime (qv. Seven-Fold Way); it means people who, although maintaining their individuality and lonely path share and implement common aims. This genuine Temple/group/nexion is also a sharing place of pathei-mathos of its associates; furthermore this type of Temple/group/nexion is often bound to a particular land/rural area and it is a very important aspect of it: Blut und Boden.

 

Italian Temple of The Order of Nine Angles

 

Secuntra is the exoteric name of the Italian Nexion of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), for over a decade Order’s Traditional Temple. Hereditary guardian on Italian soil of that genuinely Western tradition and firmly rooted in Europe known as Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition/Hebdomadry (in the past as well as today, its sinister aspect is known as Sinister Tradition).

 

The Secuntra Nexion correctly understood is a direct emanation of the acausal and of the nexion called ONA/O9A. Temple’s associates follow and practice the initiatory path known as The Seven-Fold Way in the traditional manner and the Greek-Roman pagan mystics, ancestral heritage of the Italic soil and of the genuine Western tradition, mostly choosing the dangerous and extreme form of Traditional Satanism (which advocates terrorism, human sacrifice, crime and political and religious extremism) as a vehicle to Presence the Dark, and as a means of personal Nigredo.

 

The initiated apprehension of O9A esotericism is of a particular, modern, and occult, weltanschauung that melds aspects of ancient hermetic mysticism, and certain pagan traditions, with a personal exoteric and esoteric pathei-mathos. Esoterically, this occult weltanschauung is a new logos – that is, a new perceiveration and a new way of living and a new ethos – and one which the term ‘the sinisterly-numinous’ reasonably well describes, for it is a balancing of (i) the previous ‘numinous logos’ which became manifest, over two millennia ago, in causal forms such as gnosticism and Christianity, with (ii) what is ‘sinister’ (which is and has been manifest in various causal forms, such as ‘traditional satanism’ and occult antinomianism), and which balancing, involving as it does various practical means and thus a personal pathei-mathos, enables first a return to the Unity beyond all causal forms and thence a conscious evolution of ourselves, as individuals.[3]

 

[ONA claims] (1) that most of their traditions and Occult praxises are firmly rooted in an ancient European paganism and in Western Occultism; (2) that the Western Occult tradition is and always been based on a septenary system; and (3), that the Qabalistic system – beloved and used by all other Western occultists from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn to Crowley to LaVey and Aquino and others – is a later, medieval, and ‘magian’, distortion of the Western tradition.” [4]

 

In stark contrast to the unbalanced, masculous, egoistic ipseity manifest by both modern satanism and by the modern, Western, Left Hand Path, the O9A – despite outer appearances and despite its intentionally confusing mythos – continues the classical (Greco-Roman) tradition of esoteric paganism, manifest as that tradition is in (i) a personal, and years-long, anados (a quest for immortality) involving myesis and various practical esoteric arts, rites, mysteriums, and techniques; in (ii) an understanding (intuitive or otherwise) of the need to acquire or cultivate (by various means) a certain inner equilibrium as a prelude to apprehending our physis, the physis of other living beings, and the physis of Being itself, so that we are ‘not foiled in acquiring knowledge germane to our essence’, and in (iii) an exeatic (pagan) living balanced by an awareness (intuitive or otherwise) of supra-personal affective forces (howsoever described or denoted) beyond the power of egoistic mortals to control.

 

Furthermore, the O9A not only continues that classical tradition but has also substantially evolved it, as for instance by (i) providing, in the Seven Fold Way, a very practical anados that anyone can follow, and by (ii) correcting the thousands of years old imbalance between the masculous and the muliebral, an imbalance (a bias toward the masculous) that was internal (personal, esoteric, in the psyche) and external (in societies, in manufactured abstractions, in ideologies and ideations), and which imbalance not only meant that only a few individuals, per century, evolved toward wisdom, but also that external forms and structures followed an inexorable pattern of temporal rise, decline, and fall, and which unnecessary cyclicity has stifled our evolutionary potential as conscious beings.[5]

 

In contrast to that patriarchal ethos – which has dominated the world, East and West, for millennia – the O9A tradition is of ἀρρενόθηλυς: of balancing the masculous with the muliebral through pathei-mathos both Occult and exoteric.” [6]

 

The Secuntra Nexion’s Aims:

 

  1. Spreading the teachings of the aural tradition firmly rooted in Europe known as Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition/Hebdomadry/Septenary System/Seven-Fold Way – as disclosed by ONA/O9A in opposition with the Hebrewesque teachings/traditions (qv. Qabalah) disclosed by so-called Western occultists.

     

  2. Spreading the teachings of the dangerous and extreme form of Satanism known as Traditional – as disclosed by ONA/O9A and tear down the weak version of Satanism delivered by docile latter-day Satanists.

     

  3. Countering the distortion of the Nazarene/Magian current on Italian soil, infiltrating groups and structures and disintegrating them from within – aiding the Sinister Dialectic and those exoteric forms that favour it.

     

  4. Presencing the Dark doing and encouraging sinister exeatic acts of defiance – in honour to the Dark Gods.

     

  5. Celebrating at particular times of the year sinisterly-numinous ceremonies in order to maintain the nexions active on Italian soil – and working through these of Aeonic Magick.

     

  6. Guiding those few really interested who have overcome our several tests and ordeals, along the difficult and dangerous initiatory path known as The Seven-Fold Way in the traditional manner.

The founder (or Initiate 0) of Secuntra Nexion, a loner Initiate of the Sinister Tradition, in the first phase, which lasted about four years of causal time, has assumed the burden and honour to translate the most important works of the Order in Italian language [7], with the initial aim of using those teachings for the exclusive use of his progress along the Seven-Fold Way and for the advancement of the associates of the Nexion. Teachings in part subsequently disseminated externally through the creation of a Nexion’s public profile, in order to begin the spread of the Mythos of the ONA/O9A, often taking an adversarial and defiant role. Another aspect of this phase is the grounding of acausal energy in particular places as well as the opening of a nexion, thus keeping the connection with the Tradition. A large quartz crystal in the shape of a tetrahedron has been buried on the top of the mountain known as Secuntra, inside a circle formed by seven stones, during a special celebration for the opening of an Earth Gate, followed by the natural form of the Rite of Nine Angles performed by a Priest and a Priestess.

 

The second phase has seen the opening of other two nexions in some wild places inside of the ancient Italian forest already linked to Secuntra nexion; places that have represented and represent the centre of the Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition in Italy (the top of some mountains and the whole area around), in which one can still feel an ancestral pagan tradition related to the land, to the clan and to a warrior ethos. Of those other two nexions which were later opened one emanates a masculous (spheres of Mercury, Mars, Sun of the Tree of Wyrd) energy and the other a muliebral (spheres of Jupiter, Venus, Moon of the Tree of Wyrd). Two large quartz crystals shaped like tetrahedrons were buried at the centre of these two stone circles. Secuntra is the most important nexion, representing a synthesis/amalgam of the aspects/energies of the other two nexions (sphere of Saturn, and the Tree of Wyrd in its entirety), between the masculous and muliebral. Sinisterly-numinous rites continue to be celebrated in order to maintain these nexions active.

 

These mountains, the great valleys, the woods, the whole area around and the same region, in ancient times were an important emanation of Hellenic Aeon and Greek-Roman ethos which underlies the genuine Western tradition, and they are still pervaded by a more ancient and ancestral pagan tradition. This is a link with the rural tradition of the ONA/Rounwytha/Camlad (aka Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition/Hebdomadry).

 

Places of the Tradition which are only passed down orally to Nexion’s Initiates during a stage of their journey along the Seven-Fold Way – two Guardians (a woman and a man) guard the places and celebrate sinisterly-numinous rites in particular periods.

 

An important aspect of Secuntra Nexion is the celebration/emanation of the energies that represent the dark feminine as embodied by our Dark Goddess Baphomet. To this end there is a hard work for the development of those muliebral qualities/skills within each associates (with the aim to arrive successively to an amalgam/balance between the masculous and muliebral aspects) and it is no surprise that almost all of those associates are women (of course our special kind of woman, often dangerous and deadly).

 

[…] [O9A] always opposed the patriarchal ethos that has dominated and still dominates most of the world, manifest as this ethos is esoterically in the doctrine of ‘might is right’, in the axiom of the primacy and egoism of the individual (‘my will be done’/der Wille zur Macht).” [8]

 

[…] the muliebral presences and manifests what is a-causal – what, in the past, has often inclined us to appreciate the numinous – while the masculous presences and manifests what is causal, temporal, and what in the past has often inclined us toward hubris and being egoistic.” [9]

 

One of the manifest errors – distortions – of the Left Hand Path, and of the Satanic, Magian Occultism so prevalent in the West, in the past, as still now, is its patriarchal nature and the fact that it is dominated by the de-evolutionary doctrine of so-called might is right and thus dominated by and infested with male specimens of Homo Hubris who have no sense of honour, no culture, no empathy, no arête, little or no self-honesty, little or no manners, but who instead possess a bloated ego and a very high opinion of themselves.

 

[…] The truth is that many women are naturally gifted with qualities that many men still lack – qualities necessary in men for balance, both esoteric and exoteric. And qualities certainly required for someone to become an Internal Adept of our tradition and then pass into and beyond The Abyss, and thus qualities required to bring forth an entirely new and more evolved species of human being.” [10]

 

Used Tactics

 

Part of the Secuntra Nexion’s physis as well as ONA/O9A physis can be represented by the adjective shape-shifter. In this regard, the Nexion has used and will use all the necessary and useful means/forms for the implementation of its short-term and long-term aims (qv. Sinister Dialectic). These means/forms include the dangerous and extreme form of Traditional Satanism and National Socialism/Fascism. As for all exoteric forms, these are only a means, and as such do not and have never represented the essence of Nexion. Simply said, Secuntra and ONA/O9A are and always have been beyond the used forms.

 

[…] in its essence this practical O9A path, or way, is not ‘satanic’, not a ‘left hand path’, and not a ‘right hand path’, even though it has elements which could be described by such conventional terms. It is just different, unique, new. […] it’s a journey and a way of life which, if they embark upon them, will take them from ‘the sinister’ toward ‘the numinous’ and thence toward what is beyond both those causal forms.[11]

 

The Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) is a sinisterly-numinous mystic tradition: it is not now and never was either strictly satanist or strictly Left Hand Path, but uses ‘satanism’ and the LHP as ‘causal forms’; that is, as techniques/experiences/ordeals/challenges (amoral and otherwise) in a decades-long personal anados to engender in the initiate both esoteric, and exoteric, pathei-mathos, and which pathei-mathos is the beginning of wisdom.

 

The extreme type of ‘satanism’ advocated by the O9A is – for O9A initiates – only one part of the ‘sinister’ aspect of the sinisterly-numinous tradition: a necessary and novitiate pathei-mathos, a modern ‘rite of passage’.” [12]

 

[…] the O9A initiate has to live, in a practical way and for several years, a ‘sinister’ life and then, again in a practical way and for several years, a ‘numinous’ life. According to the O9A it’s only from the personal understanding (the learning from practical experience) of both types of lives over a period of many years (a decade or more) that there is an affective enantiodromia and thus the acquisition of wisdom. Anything else is insufficient.” [13]

 

Thus the term the sinisterly-numinous tradition does seem appropriate to describe the esoteric philosophy of the Order of Nine Angles, their Seven Fold Way, and what they present, presence, and represent – their ethos and culture – beyond their polemics and their use, via Aeonic Sorcery, of various causal forms. For, correctly understood, the O9A presence and represent some-thing – a unique practical modern occult way – beyond satanism, beyond the Left Hand Path, beyond paganism, and beyond ancient hermeticism.” [14]

 

Since the exoteric part of Secuntra Nexion appeared for the first time to the audience (mainly through the medium of the Internet) about seven years ago, this awakened a movement inside what some call the Occult brotherhood/scene. With the aim of spreading some of the ONA/O9A teachings – exoteric (qv. Traditional Satanism) and esoteric related to aural tradition known under various names (Sinisterly-Numinous Tradition, Seven-Fold Way, Septenary System, Hebdomadry) the interest for the Temple increased, bringing several individuals to approach it with the intent to follow its principles, methods and praxis.

 

This led over the years to have to deal with different people, most of which without no surprise was proved to be without promethean elan and totally mundane!

 

From the analysed human sample it has been possible to extrapolate four types of individuals:

 

  1. The first type of individuals includes all those people who have been dealing with us for some time, through the indirect means of the Internet, but after a while they left the Path adding some excuses (or didn’t add excuses at all), because of the difficulty and danger of the Seven-Fold Way.

     

  2. The second type of individuals, paradoxically the most conspicuous, includes all those people who, although have never had to do with us, both directly and through the indirect means of the Internet, speak and have spoken, publicly or privately, about what is or is not ONA/O9A and what is or is not Secuntra Nexion, most often after having read some Order MS ignoring the hundreds of others texts from the 1970s to today that have been brought-into-being, then getting lost in that Labyrinthos Mythologicus that the Order has created. Almost all of these people live on forums, mailing lists and groups on social networks, proclaiming themselves as part of ONA/O9A or as part of a some particular nexion as Secuntra. Some of them test themselves in the awkward translation (often distorting the meaning of what is written, not having first-hand experience of the subject matter) of some MSS of the Order or in the creation of pages/blogs related to it.

     

  3. The third type of individuals, albeit very small, includes those people who have been dealing with us for some time, in a direct way, and the Temple has no longer contact with them.

     

  4. A fourth type of individuals, the only of some value, includes those people who have been dealing with us (initially, some times, through the indirect means of the Internet, but almost always in a direct manner through the clandestine recruitment, de visu) and after passing several tests and ordeals arranged on their way (most often by us) they eventually have a direct and personal knowledge of the Nexion and then the tradition that the ONA/O9A represents.

There is nothing special about the first three types of above individuals except for the fact that some of our associates have fun by manipulating them, by testing them, playing with them our sinister games, in the way that it has always been said and done by ONA/O9A for over forty years.

 

The first type of individuals, albeit minimally, was useful to ground that energy that ONA/O9A and Secuntra Nexion re-present. The second type of individuals, or the o9a-pretendu-crowd, is nothing more than raw material with which we played and we play our sinister games. It was also useful and will be useful to our purposes (qv. Sinister Dialectic). The third type of people does not differ much from the first. It was useful to our short-term and long-term aims!

What is common to the first three types of individuals is that they were useful to spread the Mythos of the ONA/O9A. This will not please many, but it is like that!

 

Beyond The Mirror

 

To see beyond the mirror of mundaneness is not so difficult. Obviously, it requires a bit of sagacity, insight, but above all the will to do it, or better said, one needs to possess a particular physis or the potential to develop it.

 

A member of this o9a-pretendu crowd is easy to spot, on-line and off-line, for their words and their opinions reveal their lack of style, their lack of sinister experience, their lack of esoteric understanding.” [15]

 

And to those that claim a membership to the nexion called Secuntra, one might ask them, to begin with:

 

  1. What is the date that marks the esoteric emergence of Secuntra Nexion?

  2. What is the name of a place of great esoteric importance in which one is expected to bump into during the ordeal of the Italian Black Pilgrimage?

  3. What is the name of a force/energy which the Secuntra mountain is dedicated to?

  4. What is the esoteric home of Secuntra Nexion and what is the exoteric one?

  5. Where were celebrated and recorded the Esoteric Chants of Secuntra Nexion?

Instead, how many of those so skilled with words and who claim to be ONA/O9A, for example, have deliberately and as part of their anodos:

 

  1. Undertaken a culling?

  2. Undertaken the rite of External Adept?

  3. Trained for and achieved the basic physical challenges of our Way?

  4. Undertaken several Insight Roles?

  5. Undertaken the rite of Internal Adept or spent at least three months alone in the wilderness?

  6. Indulged in violent, ‘criminal’, and other amoral activities for six months to a year?

  7. Acquired skill in Esoteric Chant and performed it with a group?

  8. Acquired skill in the advanced form of the Star Game?

  9. Undertaken rites to invoke the Dark Gods using a large crystal tetrahedron?

  10. Run a group/nexion/temple of many individuals for a year or two – and so had to deal with their questions, the squabbles, the rivalry?

  11. Had that group/nexion/temple plan and conduct the tests for selecting an opfer and then perform a rite of sacrifice?

  12. Sinisterly manipulated or incited someone, or several, into undertaking a culling and/or an act of terror?

  13. Sinisterly manipulated or incited someone, or several, into a life of violence and/or crime and/or of practical heretical/adversarial activism disruptive of the status quo? [15]

     

 

Joining The Secuntra Nexion

 

Being part of the Secuntra Nexion means to possess a particular physis and to live according to the Logos of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A) enshrined in the Code of Kindred Honour.

 

[…] since such honour is considered as a primary means of maintaining the necessary (internal and external, and esoteric and exoteric) balance between causal and acausal, between the ‘sinister’ and the ‘numinous’, and between the masculous and the muliebral.” [16]

 

It means individuals who know each other in person and by virtue of the Code of Kindred Honour share an oath, a secret and common aims. As such, Secuntra Nexion is like an extended family, a clan linked by bonds of honour and comradeship.

 

The Secuntra Nexion, being the traditional Italian nexion of the Order of Nine Angles (ONA, O9A), provides guidance and advice to all those who after a long and often painful quest come to us. For the rest there is plenty of other groups around.

 

[…] we expand nefariously, internationally, and often in the traditional esoteric manner of a covert personal recruitment of those with our physis or whom we judge have the potential to develop our type of physis. In practical terms this often amounts to recruiting (and then testing) those individuals who are or who may be useful to us in our own esoteric quest and our own lives and useful to our nexion (as in them beginning their own quest), and/or who may be useful to the Aeonic aims of the O9A, as for example by them recruiting specific others or by them ‘presencing the dark’ through various actions and activities.” [17]

 

We grow and have grown slowly, as befits our Aeonic perspective. Slowly, through personal contact, a personal knowing, pledges of duty and loyalty based on our code of honour… It means we are something of a large, growing, unconventional family, whose relations and relatives are becoming dispersed around the Earth, and who – unlike many extended natural families – have a shared, supra-personal, purpose and a shared culture. Naturally, like all families, sometimes there are disputes, as sometimes a young son or daughter leaves home to adopt another culture or none. But by and large the family stays together, because of our culture, our traditions, our practices, our Occult abilities and faculties, our very long-term esoteric aims and goals. Which is one reason why many of our people have been with us, part of our family, for ten, twenty, thirty years and more, and why we have slowly grown through assimilating their friends, their sons, their daughters, their relatives, their colleagues. And why we have recruited, we still recruit and will continue to recruit, in the old-fashioned way.” [18]
