Julius Evola, The Seven Fold Way, And The Corpus Hermeticum

Both the Longusian Seven Fold Way and the more recent Hebdomian Way are modern hermetic quests for Lapis Philosophicus. For decades, those associated with the esoteric tradition of the septenary system (ἑβδομάς) which forms an integral part of the Occult philosophy of the Longusian tradition have maintained not only that their septenary system has ancient roots and is far older than the medieval Hebrew Kabbalah used by most other modern Western Occultists, but also that it is in essence a hermetic philosophy. As is the non-Longusian Hebdomian Way.

Such links to ancient hermeticism are particularly obvious when the insights and understanding of Julius Evola as manifest in his La Tradizione Ermetica are considered in the context of those two modern hermetic quests, The Star Game, and Myatt’s translation of and commentary on tractates of the Corpus Hermeticum.

The Star Game And The Hebdomad

The Star Game And The Hebdomad

Although now mostly associated with the Order of Nine Angles, The Star Game (TSG) in its original septenary form is just a modern strategic and tactical game for two players: a more complicated type of chess which has been played as such for decades by a discerning few. This essay concentrates on the original 1975 Star Game, its hermetic origins and its significance as a challenging, modern, and alchemical game which can aid the hermetic quest (ἄνοδος) for Lapis Philosophicus.

The Paradox Of The O9A Authority Of Individual Judgment

(pdf)

The Order of Nine Angles ‘principle of the authority of individual judgment’ is something of a paradox which should be discussed given what it has led to: individuals and groups associating themselves with the Order of Nine Angles – the esoteric philosophy presenced by Anton Long – being associated by non-O9A folk with those who have preached in favour of and in some cases undertaken what I and a few other O9A folk consider to be dishonourable, cowardly, deeds inconsistent with the ethos, the aesthetic, of O9A esoteric philosophy.
