AT KENNETH ANGERS HOME THE OLD RUSSIAN EMBASSY.
- b05-07-48, Susan Denise Atkins, d09-31-09, aka “Sadie Mae Glutz“,
Type of Satanism: independent (formerly part of “The Witches of Mendocino”; formerly independent, well known as a murderer in association with Charles Manson and his ‘Family’)“Atkins” came into contact with “LaVey” in San Francisco after being released from the hoosegow, and danced in a show he organized called the” Witches’ Sabbath” as a blood-swilling vampire. It was a precursor of things to come for the ruthless girl.
Multiple convictions. Confessed murderer. Died in prison of brain cancer.Even if they weren’t officially CoS members (most Satanist aren’t), it proves criminally minded, violent people are attracted to Satanism. Susan Atkins actually appeared with LaVey and a couple of other girls in a corny strip club act. She played a vampire, not surprising when you consider she licked the blood stained knife she killed Sharon Tate and her unborn child with. Bobby Beausoleil appeared in the movie by fellow Church of Satan member Kenneth Anger, Lucifer Rising. During the Tate/Labianca murders, Beausoleil told his terrified vicitms, “I’m the Devil, and I’m here to do the Devil’s business!” A fourth killer/cannibal, Stanley Baker, who actually ate his victims, was caught en route to meet LaVey.
The Hippie Movement and Invocation of My Demon Brother (1966–1969)
The mid 1960s saw the emergence of the hippie scene and the increasing use of the mind-altering drugs that Anger himself had been using for many years. In particular, the hallucinogen LSD, which at the time was still legal in the United States, was very popular, and in 1966 Anger released a version of his earlier film,Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome entitled the “Sacred Mushroom Edition” which was screened to people while taking LSD, thereby heightening their sensory experience. By this time, Anger had become well known throughout the underground scene in the United States, and several cinemas across the country screened his better known films all in one event. With this growing fame, Anger began to react to publicity in much the same way as his idol Aleister Crowley had done, for instance describing himself as “the most monstrous moviemaker in the underground,” a pun on the fact that Crowley had been labelled “the wickedest man in the world” by the British tabloids in the 1920s.Anger’s fame on the underground circuit allowed him to increasingly associate with other celebrities, including Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan; despite their differing philosophies, the two became good friends and would remain so for many years. However, Anger also held a resentment towards certain celebrities, namely Andy Warhol, who at the time was achieving success not only in the art world but also in the underground film scene. In 1980 Anger threw paint over the front door of a house that Warhol had recently moved out of.
Anger subsequently decided to publicly reinvent himself. In the October 26, 1967 issue of Village Voice he placed a full-page advert declaring “In Memoriam. Kenneth Anger. Filmmaker 1947–1967”. He soon publicly reappeared, this time to claim that he had burned all of his early work. The following year he travelled to London where he first met J. Paul Getty, who would subsequently become Anger’s patron, and where he also met and befriended Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, members of The Rolling Stones, as well as Richards’ drug addicted girlfriend Anita Pallenberg. Anger then decided to use much of the footage created for Lucifer Rising in a new film of his, Invocation of My Demon Brother, which starred Beausoleil, LaVey, Jagger and Richards, as well as Anger himself, and the music for which had been composed by Jagger. It was released in 1969, and explored many of the Thelemic themes that Anger had originally intended for Lucifer Rising.
Aleister Crowley whom kenneth Anger obcessively honors in his movies and life philosophy.
Crowley’s magical title in the O.T.O. was Baphomet, the master magician (Octinomos) the eightfold name. Baphomet is also elevenfold, as revealed by the Baphometic Cross. It symbolizes not only the eleven Sephiroth (i.e. the ten Sephiroth plus Daäth) but also the One beyond Ten that pervades the system from Outside (Nuit/Kali).
In summation Crowley was the herald adept of the “End Times”, and insisted himself that “Al, the term for God, Great, Almighty, referred to as The Book of the Law, will effect the total destruction of civilization as we know it”. Same source reference.
Crowley himself felt that he was the Great Satan, the Chosen Prophet, who would inaugurate the New Age, but not before the violent bloody overthrow of the old Aeon.
Crowley pimped, yes, I said pimped, the 93 magical formula to achieve such ambitions he himself desired knowing full well that shakti, the goddess Venus, is expressed through the higher polarity of occult intelligence, emotional will, and selfless being, against the lower polarity of occult intelligence, emotional will, and selfish being, sexual immorality, lust, and abused love.
Crowley clearly chose the latter polarity, yet, the forked tongued serpent spoke of lofty
From the mouth of the disciple Kenneth Grant, “this book contains a critical study of Aleister Crowley’s system of sexual magick and its affinities with the ancient Tantric rites of Kali, the dark goddess of blood and dissolution represented in Crowley’s Cult as the Scarlet Woman.” From Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God.
“Lilith, is one of the 17 names of Kali; enemy of infants, bride of the evil angel Sammael(Satan). Lilith is drawn from the lili, female demonic spirits in Mesopotamian demonology, and known as ardat lili”. A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels by Gustav Davidson.
Back to Grant then disciple and head of today’s O.T.O (Ordo Templi Orientis); Kali in the form of the letter “k”, which is a glyph of the yoni and the letter attributed to sexual magick, which is one of the reasons why Crowley terminates magick with a “k”.
More from the mouth of the disciple; ” I have evolved a method of dream control for contacting extra-terrestrial and non-human entities. This method is described in relation to the mysteries of Kundalini, the supreme magical power symbolized by the sleeping Fire Snake at the base of the spine which, after its awakening, activates the subtle power-zones in the human body”. From the same source book as referenced above.
Fire Snake and kundalini determine the vital force/shakti, representing the sexual energies, and potencies of the human unconscious mind. The 93 magickal formula – love/sex under will is the law – awakends and activates the Fire Snake by way of the Ophidian (satanic) 93 current magickal current.
Back to the disciple Grant; “Aleister Crowley, Austin O. Spare, Dion Fortune and the German occultist Eugen Grosche were among the first Adepts in the West to teach the use of the psycho-sexual energies, the Ophidian Current that informed the most ancient arcana of Africa and the Far East.
The letter “k” is the eleventh letter of several magor alphabets and is symbolic of magick power (sex) in its feminine aspect; it is the symbol of that gigantic Power whose colour is scarlet, who has affinity with Capricorn (Baphomet), or Babalon, and the goddess Kali, whose vehicle is blood”.
(Is this maybe why they chose young women to murder and kill?)
The blood refered to is the female menstruation cycle, the time of purging, purifectation, dissolution, and disintergration, before a new cycle begins.
Our ancient ancestors feared that menstruating women were susceptible to demonic possession, which is why sex with women during their ‘period’ was forbidden, and they were housed together outside the community, until the danger was past.
Back to Grant; in the Book of the Law, the goddess Nuit (‘Kali’) exclaims: “My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us”. Same source reference.
Dion Fortune said herself; “11, is the number of the Qliphoth”. The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune.
Grant defines Qliphoth; “the name given to a region inhabited by soulless entities, the shells or mouldering vehicles of perverted and aborted desires that prolong their twilight existence by preying on the vital fluids of the living. It is the region of vampires, ghouls, demons, and evil spirits, as well as being the habitation of the phantom forms generated by sexual desires and morbid cravings constantly produced by dwellers on earth. Each sphira of the Tree of Life has its corresponding qliphoth which is the reflection of the energy which it represents, and these averse sephiroth form what is known as the Tree of Death. Only the well-armed Initiate, the Adept, in fact can use these power-zones with impunity”. Same reference source.
