ISIS vs. the Illuminati: The War for a New World Order

I have just published a new book:

This book explores the roots of the great conflict of our time: the war between the Islamic State and the Illuminati for a New World Order. What are the deep ideas, agendas and power structures of the “Illuminized” West that the Islamists object to, and vice versa? Who are the main players driving the war? What are their histories, myths and metaphysical beliefs? What strategies and tactics are they using to achieve victory?

In providing answers to such questions, author John Blackstone will challenge some of your preconceptions and cut through some of the propaganda that you may have been exposed to. The ISIS-Illuminati conflict cuts across all borders and threatens everyone on the planet; why not arm yourself with the most powerful weapon of all – knowledge?

Dark Psychonautics

"Darth Maul" LSD blotter art from the early 2000s

{ The following is an excerpt from the first book from The Dark Lords of Sith Academy: Sith Academy: The Path of Power }

Before the hippies came along and ruined everything with their “peace and love,” “power to the people” fantasies, psychedelic drugs were the province of an elite, somewhat Sithy stratum of society. In the 1950s and early 1960s, psychonautic research was carried out by quality gentlemen such as Albert Hoffman, Alfred Hubbard, Aldous Huxley and Gordon Wasson, and controlled primarily by the CIA. The story of LSD’s early days, as a promising tool of mind control, psychological reprogramming, consciousness expansion and psychic power, is one of the most incredible, yet least discussed chapters of modern history. A portal into a different reality was briefly opened back then, but it was slammed shut when the powers that be realized that what they had created was getting out of control and threatening their own power.

Why am I so interested in this subject? At least four reasons:

One, as a Sith Lord, I am always looking for ways to enhance my mental powers, and LSD and other psychedelics have shown great potential to do so. Before clownish characters like Timothy Leary turned psychedelics into a mass movement that resulted in the shutdown of legal research for forty years, LSD was being studied extensively by respectable scientists in academia, government and the military. Studies suggested that it could cure addictions, alter deviant behavior, enhance creativity, increase psychological insight and produce powerful mystical experiences. Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, was an early proponent of LSD as a way to cure alcoholism. Francis Crick conceptualized the DNA molecule while tripping in 1953. Nobel prize winner Kary Mullis credits LSD with helping him develop the revolutionary polymerase chain reaction DNA sequencing process. Sithy genius Steve Jobs called taking LSD “one of the two or three most important things I have done in my life.” Numerous artists credit psychedelics with opening up their imaginations. On the darker side, the CIA was heavily involved in researching LSD as a tool of mind control, interrogation and psychological warfare (though the results were generally negative). Conspiracy theorists even suggest that the psychedelic movement was part of a larger mind control experiment designed to help bring about a New World Order.

Two, because I am a mystic and a psychonaut. I have experimented extensively with hallucinogens, delved deeply into Buddhist, yogic and tantric techniques, explored shamanism and the Occult at length, and studied psychedelic thinkers like Aleister Crowley, Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary, John Lilly, Philip K. Dick, Carlos Castaneda, Robert Anton Wilson and Terence McKenna. Yet I am also a Sith Lord, who follows a darker path of conflict, sorcery and power. I use psychonautic technologies because I find them to be some of the most powerful tools available for awakening, expanding and endarkening my consciousness. In fact, it was the deconditioning effect of psychedelics, combined with other neurochemicals, that first awakened my “inner Sith Lord” and created the dangerous mind behind Sith Academy. It undoubtedly also made my mind more receptive to the revelation of Darth Omega.

Three, the psychedelic era interests me because it illustrates the illusory nature of light side constructs. What began as a utopian light side movement among the most privileged generation in history was soon destroyed by a dark side eruption, as violent biker gangs, government agents, drug dealers and cult leaders turned the summer of love into the autumn of “helter skelter” murders, mayhem, paranoia and bad trips. The same drugs that were used by hippies to promote peace and love in the 1960s were employed by the CIA, criminals and cultists in the service of war, power and mind control. And so it goes.

Four, psychedelics offer a potent means of deconditioning and memetic engineering. By directly altering the conscious and unconscious mind, psychedelics attack the user’s basic sense of identity and reality, and make possible radical transformations in individuals and whole societies. Consider, for example, the critical role played by psychedelic drugs in the cultural changes which occurred in the United States during the 1960s. Clearly, psychedelics may be a potent tool for dismantling light side constructs which Sith sorcerers should study further.

The upshot of all this for me is that Sith Lords should be dark psychonauts, unafraid to experiment radically with their own and others’ consciousness, but too perceptive to fall for the lies of lightsiders preaching peace, love, brotherhood and ego-destruction. An endarkened Sith Lord should combine the best traits of CIA sorcerers like Sidney Gottlieb and Ronald Stark, illuminated moguls like Steve Jobs, and psychedelic gurus like Hubbard, Huxley and Castaneda. Or to use a fictional example from that era, the Sith should be like the Bene Gesserit of Dune, employing our mystical “spice” to expand our consciousness, extend our life and increase our power. We should be a cabal of psychedelic sorcerers who understand that all conflicts are ultimately wars for the mind, and who therefore must include every psychonautic tool of mental warfare in our arsenal. Instead of Leary’s mantra of “turn on, tune in, drop out,” perhaps the Sith mantra should be “turn on, turn dark, take over.” The spice must flow!

Sith Academy: The Path of Power

A project I have been involved in for several years, Sith Academy, has culminated in the publication of this book:


This is the first book from Sith Academy, a dark side school founded by the first real Sith Order on this planet. The writings and exercises contained in this book are designed to awaken your Power-Craving – the first requirement of all would-be Dark Lords. 

This book will also begin to explore your “inner Dark Lord” and develop your Sith Persona – the darker, freer, more powerful being you long to be. It contains the first Echelon in our "Nine Echelons of Sith Mastery" training program, which are nine levels of training that will test your powers of mind and body to command yourself, the Force, and the world around you. 

This book also describes the Dark Lords' vision of the coming Sith Empire, the dark side religion and the spreading of their Temple's influence across this planet and beyond. 

Whether you are a dedicated disciple of the Sith Path, or are simply curious about the new way of life Sith Academy is bringing to this planet, you will find this book indispensible. Read Sith Academy: The Path of Power and be awakened, endarkened and one step closer to the summit of Sith greatness: Dark Lordship!

I feel that this "little black book" is itself a magical artifact of considerable black magical power -- the very sight of this sinister book may unnerve and fascinate the mundane. And within its pages are the outlines of a new endarkened way of life, a new culture, empire, religion, philosophy, language and symbolism.

I envision a new dark priesthood carrying this book around with them, endarkening souls and conquering minds for the Empire. So let the current powers-that-be be warned: with the publication of this book, a new power is rising on this planet, and a new Order has been declared: The Dark Age of the Sith is at hand!

Allah's Army of the Apocalypse

I was just re-reading my previous post from 2011 called Satan's Army of the Apocalypse, and I wanted to follow it up in light of recent events.

I don't claim to be a prophet or a seer, but I do think the vision I described in that post has largely come to pass, if we substitute Allah for Satan. Because what is the "Islamic Sate" if not an apocalyptic dark army, waving black flags and rolling across a world in flames to seize power?

Are they not led by a dark-robed, bearded sorcerer, reciting spells from an ancient magic book?

Are they not trying to implement their New World Order -- the Caliphate -- and redraw maps, with a potency of will the world hasn't seen since the Third Reich?

Do they not invite and accept people of all nations and races who live by their apocalyptic creed? Are they not tapping into similar currents that the Nazis did, but in a more universalized form?

Do they not march to the songs of warriors and the poetry of their holy book? (I must admit that the Islamic State nasheed (war song) below has gotten in my head, and cast a bit of a spell)

Let me repeat what I wrote in conclusion to my post from 2011:
I sense that the world is ripe for a force of nature such as this to raze the existing order to the ground. The Muslim world has the black flag of al-Qaeda to rally around, while the Western world still slumbers with its weak and dying creeds. S.A.A. would be a force more demonic than the most fanatical jihadists, and far more militant in fighting its Holy Wars. I believe the tides of history are pushing the world into the arms of such black-flag organizations.
Is ISIS this demonic force, pushing the rest of us in that direction? Is their god Allah in truth a demon, the demiurge Yahweh, or Satan Himself? Or is something even darker -- the End Time army of the Dajjal (Antichrist) soon to appear? Have we in fact entered the era of the Malhama (the "Great War", Armageddon) as many Muslims believe?

Whatever the case may be, was my vision not somewhat prophetic, and does it not feel like an age is ending around us, the old order is collapsing, and something Satanic, dark and deadly is slouching toward us all?

Seven Pillars of Sorcery

What I call sorcery is a timeless path that is as viable in this age as any other. Indeed, sorcery has never been more vital than in this emasculated era, nor more potentially powerful than in an age of global high technology.

Here are seven pillars of sorcery, as I define it:

1. A Passion for Power

Power is the sorcerer's raison d'être. He understands that in this hostile universe, only greater power offers him any hope of immortality. The sorcerer embodies the dark force or Lucifer Principle that has driven life upward from primordial slime to the beast called man, and which will drive it further still to superman, self-annihilation or far-flung cosmic empire. He is the ultimate transgressor, the enemy of every status quo, the creative destroyer and destructive creator who stands outside the mundane world of “good” and “evil” in his quest for godhood.

The sorcerer is also a spiritual predator, ever-ready to swoop in and attack wherever he finds weakness. Just as predators play a vital role in nature by culling the weak members of their prey species, sorcerers cull weak memes from human civilization and thereby make it stronger.

2. Mastery of Demons

In modern parlance, demonology is the art of implanting dangerous memes in your own mind and the minds of others. Using meditation, chants, rituals, sigils and other psychic techniques, the sorcerer programs his own passions at will. By creating books, songs, symbols, videos, works of art, political slogans, religious mantras, occult rituals, etc., he also implants memes in other minds to serve his ends. Particularly dark and virulent memes might be called "memons": memetic demons that drive people to extreme acts of fear, hate, love, lust, etc. One common memonic tactic is to encourage what Jung called "shadow projection", in which one projects one's own fears and weaknesses upon someone else. 

An example of a potent memon is the "Jewish conspiracy" trope, which has ignited pogroms and genocides for thousands of years. In the modern West, the "racist" memon is frequently used to demonize people for the purpose of acquiring power, and may incite race riots and wars.

Every power structure understands the potential danger of explosive memons and works to control them. The sorcerer may, if he is opposed to a given regime, unleash memons in an attempt to overthrow the existing order. If he supports a regime, he may unleash counter-memons that demonize his opponents in particularly virulent ways.

3. Diabolical Drive

"The old world will burn in the fires of industry. Forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the orc."
The sorcerer is possessed of a demonic energy a relentless, restless spirit that drives him to perpetually scheme, study, build, destroy, manipulate and conquer. Where muggles are content to live ordinary lives of comfort and modest achievement, the sorcerer seeks to shake the world to its foundations, stamp his mark upon it and bend it to his will. Sorcerers are therefore great empire builders, innovators and villains, without which the world would tend toward boredom, banality and inertia. What would Middle Earth be without Saruman and Sauron, or the Galaxy Far, Far Away without the Sith? A much duller, less magical and powerful place! Would anyone care about the sleepy Shire without Mordor, or backwater Tatooine without the Empire? Of course not, because alone they lack the drive to magical greatness that is the essence of sorcery!

4. Mental Domination

A sorcerer is a mental dominator. Like Count Dracula or Rasputin, he wields hypnotic personal power and taps into subconscious fears, lusts and dreams to bend weaker minds to his will. The sorcerer may also work his black magic upon society as a whole, by producing art, ideology or religion that furthers his agenda, or commanding kings, cults or covert armies to carry out his will. Once in power, his rule is absolute and his reign is eternal, or until some more powerful sorcerer topples him. The sorcerer is the implacable enemy of democracy, liberalism, utilitarianism and compromise, which to him are the shibboleths of weak wills and mundane minds.

5. Forbidden Knowledge

A common motif of sorcerers is that they are keepers or finders of ancient or forbidden knowledge. The discovery of some occult book, sect, artifact or entity opens up a dark new world for them, and awakens their magical will to power.

In the current age of information explosion, when virtually every kind of knowledge is readily available, it might seem that this pillar is no longer so relevant. What could past civilizations possibly have to offer we enlightened moderns? What knowledge is truly forbidden today?

The issue for moderns is not so much that dark knowledge is unavailable, but that it is strongly tabooed or simply ignored. Entire ideologies, religions and cultures of great power have been dumped into the dustbin of history by "progressives" since the conquest of the Enlightenment (and Christianity before that) and forgotten. Facts which don't fit existing narratives are routinely discredited and marginalized. Modernity therefore has gaping holes in its story, and fails to account for the deeper, irrational motivations that drove men of old to build great temples, orders and empires that still awe us across millennia. It is into these dark places that the sorcerer delves, in search of the keys to power by which he may once again ignite the fires of passion in a slumbering humanity and build magical empires anew. But whether he seeks forbidden knowledge in books, nature, temples, cults, drugs, gurus or what have you, all are only pathways into the dark depths of his own mind.

6. Atavistic Imperialism

"In his time, Genghis Khan conquered half the world. I intend to finish the job."

The sorcerer often identifies with an ancient order, cult or civilization that retains the conquering spirit of his ancestors. Finding himself in an emasculated, dispirited, decadent modern world and confident in his right to rule, he boldly sets about building a new empire.

There are many fictional examples of this: Sauron and his servants Saruman and the Nazgûl, Count Dracula, Fu Manchu, Xaltotun, Thoth-Amon, Kathulos and Shiwan Khan. An example from the "real world" are the Islamist sorcerers: imams who seek to revive the spirit of the Prophet and his Companions, and conquer a weak and decadent West with a potency of will rarely seen in today's world (similar examples could be given for most other religions). Another example were the occult architects of the Axis powers, who sought to revive the lost imperial glory of their mythical forbears.

7. Dark Spirituality

The sorcerer usually has a dark spirituality or religiosity animating his work. He is not merely seeking power for its own sake, but for a greater metaphysical purpose beyond the ken of mundane minds. He may serve a dark god, demon, force, philosophy or tradition, or see himself as a man in the process of becoming his own god. His spirituality will usually be draconian, nihilistic and focused on power. If he acquires significant worldly authority, the sorcerer may set about establishing a dark theocracy, with himself as the high priest and/or god-emperor. Notable fictional examples of this include the religions of Sauron and the Sith; historical examples might include early Judaism, the Roman imperial cult, the Aztecs, medieval Christianity, Tibetan Buddhism, Imperial Way Zen, Wahhabism and Nazism.

I am drawn to sorcery for all of the above aspects. In an age of wretched rationalism that starves men's souls, deadens their spirits and weakens their wills, I crave the potency of dark sorcery. But where many are content to role-play as sorcerers or enjoy their depictions in works of fiction, I seek to build a real empire upon these seven pillars, or at least to lay its foundation.  Sorcery is not about fantasies of shooting lightning bolts from your fingertips or summoning bat-winged demons from the Abyss; it is a real world art of the highest order, with profound power over matter and minds, now and for all times.

A final warning: Each of us chooses to live for the mundane or the magical; the ephemeral or the eternal, the small or the great; the light or the dark, the weak or strong. If you choose the latter, you are a sorcerer. If you choose the former, beware: you are our enemy, and will be the object of our sorcerous scorn, now and forever, worlds without end!

Dark Cult #1: The Cult of Xoth

With this post I begin a new series about a number of dark cults that exist, so far as I know, only in my mind. I make these posts to plant seeds in the minds of all who stumble upon them, in hopes that they may bloom into fetid flowers of unlimited power!

For me, as a Dark Star, the creation of such cults is a spiritual imperative. Having explored the religions and spiritual paths available on this planet for many years and found them all lacking, I've finally realized that the only cults that really inspire me are those I create myself.

In the dawning Aeon, in which modernity's myths have failed and postmodern nihilism has given way to Chaoism, I believe cult creation will be a vital growth enterprise. In an age of spiritual ruin, in which cosmic awe and greatness have fled from the souls of men, I believe it will be cults such as these that revitalize and awaken a slumbering humanity, and become the foundations of powerful new empires and religions going forward.

If you would like to try your hand at dark cult creation, click on the button below. Darkest fortunes!

The Cult of Xoth:

The Cult of Xoth is an order of renegade scientists, scholars, occultists and artists who have heard the call of other gods and left mundane society far behind. Xoths practice a nameless, abysmal cosmic religion, which they believe to be of extraterrestrial origin. They consider H.P. Lovecraft to be their prophet, as the man who first revealed the true horror of humanity's cosmic predicament, prophesied the return of the Outer Gods and heralded the dawn of the new dark age.

Xoths have developed an elaborate mythos tracing the influence of their cult throughout recorded and pre-recorded history. They believe Xoths had a hidden hand in the religions of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and India, the druids of archaic Britain, the astronomer-priests of the Aztecs and Mayans, the origins of Islam and primeval shamans throughout the world.

The Star Temple:

Xoth cultists have purchased an abandoned observatory in the New Mexico desert and converted it into a temple. Stone stairs and an observation platform have been built around the structure, giving it an aspect reminiscent of an ancient Mayan or Indian pyramid. Inside, Xoth astronomer-monks watch the stars religiously through the three meter telescope, paying particular attention to the dark rift housing the galaxy's supermassive black hole, and an obscure galaxy in the Boötes void where they believe green Xoth, homeworld of their gods, is located.

The cultists also conduct bizarre nighttime rituals on the temple grounds, marking various celestially significant events by burning great eldritch sigils in the earth around the perimeter of the observatory, and chanting in unison while gazing skyward toward the stars, black holes and galaxies which interest them.

There are rumors of even more sinister doings at the Star Temple; the most noxious of these concerns the alleged practice of ritual sacrifice of human beings on the observatory platform by Xoth priests during particularly propitious celestial alignments.


The Xoth cult seeks to prepare mankind for the return of the Outer Gods to earth. Xoth astronomers have complex theories and make detailed observations to predict the star alignments which will mark the onset of the Age of Return. Xoths are strong proponents of space exploration, and may have played a role in the development of space programs via occult influence on key personalities such as Jack Parsons and Wernher von Braun. However, they believe the revelations of science are too shocking for mundane minds, and should be restricted to an endarkened elite. They are also keenly interested in pychedelic drugs and the UFO phenomenon, and play an active role in attempting to open portals into our world for alien intelligences via their psychonautic research and sorcerous workings.

Philosophically, Xoths are cosmicists, who regularly meditate upon the insignificance of humanity in an entropic, dying cosmos. Politically, the cult seeks to infiltrate all power-possessing organizations worldwide, and to subvert and convert their leadership to the abysmal Xothic religion. Fundamentally, Xoths believe that humanity is deceived by the false gods of conventional religion, blinded by progress, endangered by science, and deluded by their own rational minds. They wish to lift these veils of false enlightenment to reveal the stark, dark horror of a vast cosmos ruled by alien and indifferent gods. This is the Way of Xoth.
