You bring up an interesting question! My theory is things might be a little different. We would definetly see more Rosicrucian compounds in the wourld. And chances are there would be more Rosicrucians in the world.


For this conclusion I can't but reward you with a bouquet of handpicked flowers.

You have to be a genius. Truly.

And, since we are on a Rosicrucian tangent!...

Has anyone read any good secular LHP books lately?

No? Maybe a book about puppies then?

@Diavolo I honestly wish I was a genius because if I was, I'd be a millionaire by now.

@Aklo Looks like some good reads!

Meh, some of my friends are Rosicrucians (AMORC). Really isn't much different than the O.T.O. except that they apparently have their financial shit way more together and as a whole it is far more organized. I was invited to join, but personally I find myself at odds with theosophy so I refused.

It is conventional old-school secret-keeping masonic lodge, but really they aren't doing anything DIFFERENT other than they actually have some mystical paths. Both of these (AMORC and OTO) are shadow organizations for about 20 other little groups of pagans. You can generally look up 99% of the occult authors you've read and I guarantee if you type 'rosicrucian' or 'OTO' after their name something will come up.

@Mindmaster I've heard of the Rosicrucians and the O.T.O but know little of them. Although the whole secrecy aspect is quite interesting!

This post was a great resource. I humbly suggest all the crap filler posts (like the entirety of page 11 and beyond) be stricken from the record, so it can be so again.

If that is easily possible. Just a thought...

I looked at this post a while a go I will be copying and pasting the entire list highlighting the ones that interest me specifically to add to my reading list. Though I have plenty on my plate at the moment I never have a problem with a few good sugguestions. I can copy and paste the entire list back here unedited descriptions appendixed and without itemising my particular preferences. The only thing I will exclude is double recommendations so the post is concise.

The one I really enjoyed recently is the Hexagradior. Although it is not only LHP but concentrates on the magick in general but still has a big section with Satanic rituals, some of them in Latin. It has an overview of magick, what religions had to do with it over the history, how to train the influence over the aether and events etc.

It's such a combination of how-to stuff with history of magick, religious healings and other examples of "mind over matter" that I had to google every now and then to check if events it refers to are an actual fact or not (yup, they were).

The book has a certain atmosphere. That combination of histories of religions, a chapter about predestination/destiny, stuff in Latin and Hebrew... I haven't seen much that would compare to it and I'd love to find more stuff like it.

Did you retards even rear the premise of this thread? The idea here is to offer new practitioners more secular titles to better cement their own identity BEFORE delving into occult material.

Jean-Paul Sartre - No Exit

This is quite an old fashioned play but it is quite easy to read.
It deals with the difficulty that individuals may feel to cope with the others' gaze; the main question being: is this gaze a defining element of one's self? This is the old battle between ipseity and alterity but I guess it is a good introduction to the trend of French existentialism.

Besides, even though the most famous quotation from the play is "Hell is the Other", I guess that Garcin's statement: "One is what one wants to be" might interest the readers of this forum.

I really enjoyed might is right, thanks for recommending it. I felt that it really captured the essence of what LaVey meant in his earlier writings.
