“The so-called 'Left-Hand Path' - that of Kaulas, Siddhas and Viras - combines the... Tantric worldview with a doctrine of the Übermensch which would put Nietzsche to shame... The Vira - which is to say: the 'heroic' man of Tantrism - seeks to sever all bonds, to overcome all duality between good and evil, honor and shame, virtue and guilt. Tantrism is the supreme path of the absolute absence of law - of shvecchacarī, a word meaning 'he whose law is his own will'." ― Julius Evola, The Path of Cinnabar.

“It is necessary to have “watchers” at hand who will bear witness to the values of Tradition in ever more uncompromising and firm ways, as the anti-traditional forces grow in strength. Even though these values cannot be achieved, it does not mean that they amount to mere “ideas.” These are measures…. Let people of our time talk about these things with condescension as if they were anachronistic and anti-historical; we know that this is an alibi for their defeat. Let us leave modern men to their “truths” and let us only be concerned about one thing: to keep standing amid a world of ruins.” ― Julius Evola, Revolt Against the Modern World: Politics, Religion, and Social Order in the Kali Yuga.

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who died at his post during the eruption of Vesuvius because someone forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one that can not be taken from a man.” ― Oswald Spengler, Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life.

I've maintained various journals, diaries, and notebooks on just about every subject I've ever been fixated on for most of my life. I'm also a stickler regarding what I write with and what I write on - I need good pens and good notebooks. Pen on paper is primary - these contain the raw material for anything I finally type-up later.

Not to be a bother Magister, but some time back you mentioned that you were working on a second book. I'm such a fan of Essays In Satanism that I can't help but ask, how's the writing coming on the follow up and is there any idea on when it might be published?

I've had enough to put out a follow-up to EIS for some time but have put off the final touches on it. I'm ambivalent about putting out another book keyed to Satanism.

I have other writing projects that are more interesting to me, but they are not follow-ups to EIS and may or may not interest anyone who was interested in EIS. Not sure when they'll be at publication stage.
