I was yesterday talking with an advanced Satanic Mage who told me the crown of creation is considered to be Androgynous, born by the union of the feminine and masculine energies. From this neutral form of being, the practitioner told me, everything else can be created through a focused will. Androgynous is therefore both epitome of creation and the blueprint of the existing world.
I kept thinking at this in the coming hours…
Although it is the ultimate goal of creation, the Androgynous nullifies it. Is, technically, Ragnark in its meaning as doom, destruction of Gods. Nothing anymore moves – Androgynous is still. A perfect stillborn, both stunning and stunned. Death is perfect. Life would never be. We shun death all the way – it is in our nature to do so Yet, we always strive for perfection. Moreover us, Satanists, as being on a path of self improvement seek to be outstanding and flawless. How is that and what is what we want after all? Through all those questions, a poem written by Romanian Nichita Stanescu presented to my searching mind. I will post its translation here, as I took it from the https://allpoetry.com
A Lecture On The Cube
You take a piece of stone,
chisel it with blood,
grind it with Homer’s eye,
burnish it with beams
until the cube comes out perfect.
Next you endlessly kiss the cube
with your mouth, with others’ mouths,
and, most important, with infanta’s mouth.
Then you take a hammer
and suddenly knock a corner off.
All, indeed absolutely all will say
what a perfect cube this would have been
if not for the broken corner
Besides being a perfect written Chaos Magick spell, the poem caused me to think some more.
… So what I end up with from all thoughts and reflections on Androgynous is that: while we aim for perfection in this four dimensional world we also want to “ascend” (perceive actually) the same world in 5d. And above. And that won’t be possible from the stillness of an already flawless reality. Thus, we need our dooms and wastage to keep advancing, because we need to have what to beat. It is maybe that Androgynous is the perfection of creation, like Nichita’s cube is perfect by being kissed with so many mouths and moreover “with infanta’s mouth” – Infanta being the eldest daughter of a monarch who would not heir the throne – a never realized potential but with an overwhelming influence chiefly because of this. Yet, beyond this world we can only move through our flaws. As such, while flawless Androgynous is the perfect cube in this 4d reality, accepting our weakness, crushes and cracks, embracing ourselves without judgement is probably the projection of this perfect cube in and an “upward” dimension. The tesseract of creation as well as engine of advancement is precisely the acceptance of ourselves just as we are. And from there striving for advancement. Not from perfection, because perfection leads us nowhere. Much love!
