The Dark Stars




For a long time I have been struggling to give a name and a form to a sensibility that is my greatest source of inspiration and passion. As part of this ongoing effort, today I give birth to a new meme: The Dark Stars.

Among the rarest and most dangerous types of human beings found upon this Earth are those I call the Dark Stars. This term is partially derived from the New Age concept of “Star People” or “Starseeds” – Dark Stars share many characteristics of such individuals, including:

Not of This Earth: Dark Stars feel alienated from the inhabitants, institutions and events of this planet. To us, Earth is a planet of mundane, unambitious apes, to which we have been exiled and from which we long to escape.

Evolutionary Mission: Dark Stars have a passionate sense that they are on a mission to evolve this planet’s civilization toward something greater, darker and more powerful. They have thus been found among history’s greatest conquerors, prophets, industrialists, artists, inventors and scientists.

Supranormal Minds: Dark Stars are noted for their highly sensitive, intuitive, creative and magical minds. They often have out-of-body experiences, visionary episodes, creative epiphanies and extrasensory perceptions. 

Cosmic Perspective: Dark Stars are cosmic thinkers who find concepts such as starships, intergalactic travel, psychic phenomena and extraterrestrial intelligence natural and logical. Dark Stars are driven to explore and unite with the Dark Universe.

Where Dark Star People differ from Star People is that we are not “beings of Light,” but “beings of the Dark.” This means that we have endarkened personality traits, such as:

Beyond Good and Evil: Dark Stars are often baffled by the moralism of most societies, which they see as placing arbitrary limits on human behavior with no cosmic significance. Dark Stars may therefore be called “sociopaths” by the mundane, and be among the great iconoclasts and villains of history.

Lust for Power: Dark Stars understand that in this dark universe, only greater power offers mankind any hope of survival. To a Dark Star, the quest for power in all its forms – political, personal, scientific, spiritual, sexual, artistic – is a path to perfection and endarkenment.

Gnosticism: Dark Stars tend to have grim, Gnostic worldviews and sensibilities. They believe that man is a fallen god who remembers heaven, trapped in a dark, incomprehensible universe, doomed to dream, then die.

By their nature, Dark Stars are profoundly at odds with the dominant ideologies of this age – the Judeo-Christian religions and the Enlightenment. In this age, Dark Stars are among the iconoclasts, cult leaders, artists, writers, occultists and mystics who work in ways both seen and unseen, subtle and gross, to change the spirit of the age.

Notable recent examples of Dark Stars include: H. P. Lovecraft, Friedrich Nietzsche, Nikola Tesla, Aleister Crowley, Elijah Muhammad, G.I. Gurdjieff, Karl Haushofer, Adolf Hitler, Julius Evola, Jack Parsons, Jack Kirby, Edward Teller, L. Ron Hubbard, Ayn Rand, Osho and Anton Lavey.

Thanks to the work of such brilliant minds, I believe the stranglehold of the monotheists and Enlightenment cultists upon our culture has been broken forever. Thanks to such sorcery, the old gods are dead or dying, the age is changing, and new orders of magicians are taking the stage.

Dark Stars of the world, arise! The world is ours!
