Searching for the Truth in the King James Bible;
Finding it, and passing it on to you.

Steve Van Nattan



Magick or Witchcraft:

From WWW site exalting Thelemic Crowley type witchcraft.  This is an occult ritual to attack other people-- possibly with death.  

"Chaos" here is a very close parallel to Charles Manson's "Helter Skelter" doctrine.  "Jihad" is the Islamic word for Holy War, where the object is to kill those who refuse to submit to Islam.  The parallel again is threatening. 



An exercise of the Sword, to complement the work of the Wand in Chaos Monasticism.

Candidates may elect to perform the Jihad (Holy War) for any period of their own choosing and to adopt the title "íonic Warrior" for the duration of their Jihad. Jihad is performed for several purposes:

1) To test, expand, and sharpen personal magical skills.

2) As an experiment in controlled fanaticism.

3) To Immanentize the Eschaton, the bringing-forth of the Pandëmonëon.

4) To attack regressive or anti-ëonic targets.

Candidates may elect to perform Jihad in three modes; the Lesser, Greater, or the Extreme. At all times when on Jihad an íonic Warrior bears a magical dagger. This weapon may be carried in a concealed fashion, and the warrior should also sleep with it. The dagger functions as a constant reminder of the work in hand and may also find application in magical combat. The word "dagger" may be loosely interpreted to include instruments which would usually be classed as swords if desired, but the instrument should at least be of a size to be useful in physical combat.

Complete celibacy is to be maintained throughout Jihad. All sexual activities and thoughts should be vigorously suppressed and the resulting tensions and energies directed towards the martial gnosis of the Warrior. Candidates may choose to supplement the formal duties of their Jihad with such pleasures and privations as sleeping on a hard surface, eating a limited diet of high protein foods and taking vigorous exercise daily.


Lesser Jihad Duties

1) Carry a Magical Dagger at all times.

2) Complete celibacy.

3) Perform the Vortex Rite upon awakening and upon retiring. One performance should be preceded by the recitation of a Chaoist Catechism and be performed for the Immanentization of the Eschaton. The other should be used to Chaobolt a suitable target.


Greater Jihad Duties

4) Perform the Lesser Jihad Duties.

5) Perform a third Vortex Rite to Chaobolt a second target.


Extreme Jihad Duties

6) Perform the Greater Jihad Duties (to include the Lesser).

7) Break sleep midway through to perform a full Entropy or Combat Magic Ritual against a selected target.



Jihad begins with an oath taken over the dagger which specifies the mode of Jihad, its duration and target(s) to be attacked. The dagger may afterwards be engraved with numbers denoting mode and duration as with the wand in  Monasticism or else destroyed in the case of failure.

Targets may be Chaobolted at the climax of the Vortex Rite either by the usual Barbaric Incantation procedure or by the visualization of an astral Chaobolt hurled into the Vortex.

A Chaobolt consists of a long sharp triangular pyramid with a sigil on the triangular base which is visualized as diminishing in size as it recedes away from the thrower, point first.

There is no fixed form to the Chaoist Catechism. The following example may be used, modified, or ignored at will.





We believe in Almighty Chaos

Mother of Matter and íther

Nothing is True

and Everything is Permitted

There is no God but Chaos

The Pact, its Ministry on Earth


There is no Being

All is Doing

There is no Self

We do all the Gods and Goddesses

Freedom over "truth"

Probability Rules, Chaos Reigns


Pestilential Religions, Putrid Ideologies

To Entropy! Make my íon!

We are its Staff, Sword, Chalice, and Shield

We Know, We Will, We Dare, and we are Devious

Today the World

Tomorrow the Solar System

We Immanentize the Eschaton!

We Invoke the Pandëmonëon!
