My name is Aleph the Luciferian, or just Aleph. I have been writing this blog since November 22nd 2012, at which time I was just a kooky, sort of agnostic art student, high on some kind of egoistic libertarianism. In the years since, the content of this blog has matured greatly, dealing in a wide variety of subjects with a perspective that has evolved and hardened over the years as I begin to see the world in new ways that I might better serve my values, ideals, beliefs and my will.
The meaning of the name Aleph
It is borrowed from the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and the name of the protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei II. An old friend of mine once remarked that the letter Aleph also referred to the “first cause” in the context of Jewish mysticism.
The meaning of the blog name
The name was inspired by the Jakyou Manor, or Cathedral of Shdaows, from the Shin Megami Tensei games. In the games, this is where you can go to fuse your demons into a single demon and (in some games) access the Demonic Compendium, a catalog of all the demons you have ever summoned, fused, and registered where you can also summon said demons (at the cost of an variable amount of Macca, the in-game currency). Also, in Japan, the word Jakyou means “heretical”, pertaining in this case to a forbidden doctrine or magickal craft, which in the games refers to demon fusion.
My goal for this blog and beyond
My goal for this blog is to talk about all manner of issues, running the gamut of politics, religion, spirituality, philosophy, the occult and the like, as well as chart the course of my destiny even in mundane life. My broader ambition, however, is to bring about a doctrine of Luciferianism capable of transcending the mysticism often found in the realm of alternative spirituality so that it can become the greatest weapon of spiritual freedom against the mystic tyrannies of the old religions, wash away the malaise of the modern world, and systematize what was once the realm of the occult, all in a manner that the great Satanist Anton Lavey strived and ultimately failed to do with the Church of Satan.
