I love the shifting shadows between the trees at midnight, and the fatal susurration of the ocean after sunset. I bask in the death agonies of the day as the sun sinks in a sea of phantasmagorical, bloody putrescence, bruising the sky with streaks of livid agony...
Only in darkness are our deepest perceptions formed and nurtured, safe from the torture of light's corrosive discharge. And only in darkness, unafflicted by light's tyranny are we able to see and reach deep within ourselves in our quest for ultimate truth. Only of eternal darkness may we truly be assured, for the light is evanescent, a transient flare in an eternity of nothingness. And ONLY darkness is eternal. When the stars have died and all warmth has fled the universe, then will we be at peace, forever.
But that is the promise of the future, and we must live in the moment of now. Even so, I have always preferred the the promise of sunset to the threat of dawn, always thrilled in life renewed and strength reborn as darkness permeates and renews my senses. It is therefore natural that over the course of my life, I should have pursued the study of those things so long forbidden by the worshippers of light.
Although solidly rooted in the modern world (I manage an international business), my life is filled and blessed with the power of Magick and Qabbalah. My long journey began in the course of my formative years, with the esoteric works of Aleister Crowley. Pursuing his work to its origins, I found the Qabbalah, the yoga of the West, of which I have been a student ever since.
Not that Qabbalah is confined to the darker arts (or anything else). But it does provide a map and compass for the navigator of infinity as no other system can. These things are made evident in my book, 'The Aquarius Key, A Novel of the Occult'. Based on more than thirty years of research, this book reveals much of the nature of our strange new eon and the destruction which is to come.
