The Ecstatic Gnosis of the Black Sun

Reversal, Inversion, and Transgression. From the authors of the Liber Nigri Solis. 7.15 for 7.30 start

One of the anonymous contributors and editors of Liber Nigri Solis tonight explores some of the themes found in the recently released book. The Black Sun's imagery, that echo of the solar eclipse, has appeared and reappeared in Western history from renaissance alchemy to chaos magic - an archetype of catastrophic change, transformation, and the ending of the World-Age. In the mid 20th-century it of course had a contentious occult interpretation amongst the most reprehensible of political movements of that century. Tonight's talk looks at the Black Sun from a post-chaos perspective, charting the historical development of this archetype's psycho-cultural significance, then explore its contemporary relevance, suggesting various magical techniques of personal and wider use. The talk will include basic summaries of concepts central to the Liber Nigri Solis, including "aeonics", and will appeal to specialists, generalists, and novices alike.
