The True Face of Chaos

We often equate existence with big bangs and spectacular light displays. For it is known that where there is light, there is life. Yet we one day will come to know that there are many forms of life, and with this life, many different types of creation stories. Such is the story of Chaos as it existed before The Plane of Order manifested. Some say Chaos was a formless void, while others believe it was a raging storm of energy and matter. Regardless of its true nature, Chaos was a place of great power and potential. It was within this Plane that the first sparks of life were born. From these humble beginnings, the Plane of Order eventually came into being. And though it is now mortal enemies with Chaos, we can still see the remnants of its power in the chaos that exists in our world.

Chaos and Order have been locked in battle since the beginning of time. Chaos is the force of entropy, constantly striving to break down the Universe’s structure. Order is the force of stasis, working to maintain the status quo. For eons, these two forces have conflicted, each trying to gain the upper hand. Recent discoveries in quantum physics suggest that Chaos may be gaining ground. According to some theories, our Universe is a chaotic system only temporarily held in check by Order. As we gain new knowledge and understand the true nature of reality, Chaos may begin to assert itself again. The outcome of this battle is far from certain, but one thing is clear: Chaos and Order will continue to wage war for as long as the Universe exists. 

Chaos is seen as an opposing force, an unpredictable and dangerous force that can lead to destruction. However, Chaos is a creative force, a source of new ideas and possibilities. Chaos Theory is best said to be the behavior of systems susceptible to initial conditions. In other words, it studies how small changes can lead to significant effects. Chaos theory has been used to explain everything from the weather to the stock market, now applied to quantum computing. Quantum computers can exploit the strange behavior of particles at the subatomic level to perform calculations that are impossible for classical computers. Some scientists believe that quantum computers will create artificial intelligence or new life forms. CERN is an international scientific organization best known for its Large Hadron Collider, a particle accelerator designed to study the fundamental structure of matter. However, CERN is also involved in many other research projects, including quantum computing. Recently, CERN announced a new project called the Chaos Computer Club, which will explore the potential of quantum computing to create artificial intelligence. The Chaos Computer Club is just one of many organizations trying to harness the power of Chaos to create new particles and possibly more.

Breakthroughs are great! But we haven’t grown consciously enough. We end up with only momentary positive uses until we eventually fall short of our breakthroughs. I have consciously contemplated these organizations and concluded that they are oblivious to what they are attempting to do in a spiritual sense. It is humanity’s way to tinker with destructive powers that can sometimes place the planet in turmoil, as with the atomic bomb. The problem is that we become so spellbound by the potential good a new technology offers that we gloss over the potential for misuse and catastrophe—certainly the case with nuclear power and the atomic bomb. New technologies always offer new possibilities for good and evil. It is up to us to grow more conscious to ensure that the good outweighs the bad. Unfortunately, it often seems like we are more interested in playing with our toys than in the hard work of growing up spiritually. As a result, we often end up causing more harm than good.

Philosophers have long wrestled with the concepts of order and chaos. In the physical world, within everything, there are laws and patterns. The laws of physics can explain even the most random-seeming events. However, there is also a sense that the world is unpredictable and chaotic. They were recognized by scientists in the early 20th century, who found that even simple systems could exhibit complex behavior that was impossible to predict. Since then, chaos theory has developed to explain this behavior. A peculiar aspect of these patterns is the Chaotic Force that makes them unpredictable. Scientists believed that chaotic forces could be contained and harnessed. Since then, researchers have received significant interest in chaos control, seeking to tame the untamable. However, remember that chaos is inherent in the world, and control is a false understanding. Chaos theory can help us to understand and predict chaotic behavior, but it cannot change the underlying nature of the Universe.

Before the Universe, there was only Chaos. Chaos was an infinite and eternal abyss, filled with an endless supply of energy. This energy was constantly in flux, always moving and changing. There was no order or structure, and Chaos was in a continual state of change. However, Chaos was not always in a state of flux. At one point, Chaos was in a state of harmony and balance. But then, something happened that disrupted the peace of Chaos. Order appeared. Order is the force that brings stability and structure to the Universe. The power creates stars and planets and sets them in motion. It also gives rise to life and organizes it into complex forms. Order permeates everything in the Universe, from the giant galaxies down to the smallest matter particles. And wherever Order appears, Chaos is destroyed. Chaos can only stabilize when Order is no longer present. Any form of containment is, in essence, replicating this ancient battle. We should prepare for this outcome. I can only give insight into what Chaos once was and what it still is beyond the reaches of this Universe. We must understand from Chaos’s viewpoint that Order is the enemy. Consequently, as products of Order in the physical Universe, so are we. 

Chaos Magic is a relatively new magical practice characterized as an invented religion. The founding figures of Chaos Magic believed that other occult traditions had become too dogmatic and religious. Chaos Magic bases itself on the belief that we can tap into forms beyond the material universe and connect to the Chaotic Force. Only achieved when we let go of our attachment to the material world and transcend to a higher state of consciousness. Chaos Magic is a non-dogmatic and flexible approach to magic that allows each individual to explore and create their unique magic system. Chaos Magic is a very inclusive and diverse practice open to anyone willing to explore. Chaos magic is a relatively new magical tradition that strongly emphasizes the role of belief in achieving magical results. According to Chaos magic theory, all symbol systems used in magic – whether they be Qabalah, astrology, the I Ching, or anything else – are ultimately constructs of the human mind. As such, they have no absolute truth value in and of themselves. What matters is not whether a particular system is “true” but whether it is effective in helping the practitioner achieve their goals. This approach has led Chaos magicians to experiment with various techniques and symbols, often borrowing from other traditions to find what works best for them. While this approach may lack the traditionalism of some other schools of magic, it has resulted in a vibrant and ever-evolving tradition that continues to grow in popularity.

Chaos Magic and Chaos Theory provide a way to understand how entities in the Chaotic Realm exist. Magic is the practice of harnessing the power of Chaos, and it is the raw, unformed energy that permeates the Universe. Chaos Theory is the study of how Chaos behaves in its primordial state. Together, these two disciplines give us insights into the working of The Chaotic Realm. A Chaotic Realm is a place where Entities have existed far beyond our current Universe. These entities are of pure Chaos energy. They are mighty and yet completely non-conceived by us. Yet like us, they exist with related communication in forms much like our Universe. Chaos Magic and Chaos Theory help us to understand how these chaotic entities can live and interact with each other. The collective consciousness is beginning to awaken. Those capable of peering into this realm will see the inter-working on a cosmic scale. We cannot control such forces, for we are of consciousness and order. But this doesn’t mean we can’t understand and manipulate its outcomes. Like all known Universe, we are a physical manifestation of chaos. Our consciousness and minds keep it away because they manifest in higher planes. We see this purely in the way forces hold together our very forms and the world around us.

The hierarchy of the Chaotic Realm is not as complex as we would think. It begins with an ancient entity that once slumbered within this void far before The Absolute reflected itself as the Omni-Conscious into this now evolving Universe. In a sense, this entity is the true opposing force to what we know as the Omni-Conscious. As this is an entirely new realization, I tread lightly. It has taken thousands of years even to consider what the Omni-Conscious is. To now contemplate an equalizing danger may be beyond most spirits’ comprehension. We now know that conscious life expands in unique ways. The Absolute reflected itself into the Omni-Conscious, then the Omni-Conscious reflected itself into the Source of Consciousness and the Universal Mind, and reflected in the laws that govern The Known Universe. In the farthest reaches of the Outer Universe, beyond where consciousness prospers, there is no such reflective expansion. All manifestations of this ancient entity are a direct reflection of its persona. They do not possess individual personalities as we do as sentient beings. Thus, to communicate with any lower entity within the Chaotic Realm will be direct communication to the source of their creation.

When the conscious expansion occurs, any ancient entities such as these seek out other places of refuge beyond what we consider the void. They easily choose not to take this understanding of The Absolute and its continued growth, or they agree to sub-exist within the now forming Universe and adhere to the Absolute’s Laws. This ancient entity did consider the latter, but throughout this Universe’s growth, It began a campaign of hostility against this expansion. This war began within the Plane of Order, for it was here that Entities (from the Outer Universe) and Beings (from the Collective Universe) began to manifest into the physical Universe. Being such, the Chaotic Entities took on several manifestations. Far before the formation of the prime elements with which we are familiar. Many ancient doctrines on nothingness try to convey this to us. However, it is through the means that the mystics can consciously comprehend. Yet they, on many occasions, fall short of creation’s place in time, as it is related to the manifestation of the earth and not sometime farther. Only when realizing those creation myths that start with Chaos and, at times, the void, should we lend credence.

The Aboriginal people are said to be the most ancient of human races. It’s believed they migrated from Africa tens of thousands of years ago and settled in Australia around 60,000 years ago. The Aboriginal people have a rich history and culture and play an important role in Australian society. Their unique way of life connects to the land and their profound understanding of the natural world. Today, around 700,000 Aboriginal people live in Australia, and their unique culture is integral to their national identity. Their creation story also stems from Chaos. The leading contenders for the primordial substance are not a soup, but Sky (Uranus or Ouranos) and a kind of emptiness, referred to as either the Void or Chaos. Since there was nothing else, what came next must have sprung from these first or elemental things. The creation from the chaos story is standard in many cultures. In this story, the Universe, created from a disorderly state of affairs, explains why the world is full of suffering and evil. The tale also provides satisfaction in knowing that consciousness will restore order. Another version of this story is that there is a battle between good and evil, good promising to emerge victorious in the end. This story provides hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Yet this is just one part of the world where mystics wrote about creation from Chaos.

The Japanese Creation Myth comes from the Kojiki, or “Record of Ancient Matters,” written in 712 CE. According to the myth, all was chaos before the heavens, and the earth came into existence. Eon followed eon, and out of this boundless, shapeless mass, something light and transparent rose and formed heaven. The Plain of High Heaven materialized a deity called Ame-no-Minaka-Nushi-no-Mikoto (the Deity-of-the-August-Center-of-Heaven). Next, the Heavens gave birth to Takami-Musubi-no-Mikoto (the High-August-Producing-Wondrous-Deity), followed by a third called Kammi-Musubi-no-Mikoto (the Divine-Producing-Wondrous-Deity). These three divine beings are called the Three Creating Deities. In Japanese mythology, the world remained chaotic, the many gods born in succession with nothing to do.

The Heavenly Gods summoned the two divine beings, Izanagi and Izanami. These two Gods descended to the nebulous place, consolidating it into terra firma by helping each other. The world as we know it came to be through this action. The birth of the deities was a crucial moment in Japanese mythology as it marked the beginning of order in the world and control over chaos. It also established the roles that Izanagi and Izanami would play in shaping the world. As divine beings, they had great power and responsibility. They would have many children who would become essential gods and goddesses in their own right. Japanese mythology is full of stories about the birth of the deities and their adventures in creating and shaping the world. These stories provide a glimpse into the culture and values of the people who made them. They offer insight into how the people of Japan saw themselves and their place in the world.

Hesiod describes the origins of the Greek gods, composed in 730–700 BC. In it, Chaos was the first thing to exist: “at first Chaos came to be” (or was), but next came Gaia, Tartarus, and Eros (elsewhere, the name Eros is used for a son of Aphrodite). Unambiguously “born” from Chaos were Erebus and Nyx. For Hesiod, Chaos, like Tartarus, though personified enough to have borne children, was also a place, far away, undiscoverable by mortals, and set off apart from the cosmos proper. Otto Gruppe thought the whirlpool might have inspired Hesiod’s Chaos in the sixth book of Homer’s Odyssey. R. E. Wycherley believed that Chaos was a formless earth goddess. Other interpretations include Niels Bohr’s notion of unordered atomic matter and Georges Dumézil’s interpretation that chaos meant “the void.” Some modern scholars follow Anaximander in understanding Chaos as an unformed primordial substance that generated the distinctively Greek gods by natural processes of Timaeus 28e. Erebus, in Greek mythology, is darkness. Erebus is the child of Chaos and symbolizes deception to a new consciousness. Altogether, Chaos birthed Erebus, Nyx, Geras, Eros, and Thanatos. Erebus features little in Greek myths, but his existence indicates the hidden agendas at hand. Many times the most critical figures do not wish to be uncovered. There is a multitude of stories about the existence of Erebus’ siblings. Erebus is mainly glanced over, dispersed into history, it would seem. Erebus represents the entity manipulating the chronicle, the true motivating force behind the scenes. Examining Erebus closer brings us exciting information previously hidden in shadow. Erebus, being the god born from Chaos, never elaborated on like that of his siblings. 

Erebus finished the Underworld after the gods created the earth by filling in empty places with dark mists. This place was called Tartarus, where the Titans are said to be. NYX used Erebus’ dark energies to bring the night to earth. The Greek poets referred to this as the “Veil of Night.” Erebus and Nyx’s daughter, Hemera, was charged with burning off the dark mists to bring about dawn. As such, Erebus is of interest to both Greek cosmology and mythology. It is important to note that Erebus should not be confused with Hades, the brother of Zeus and Poseidon. Hades inherited the third realm when the three brothers divided the world into kingdoms. Hades is often associated with death and the Underworld, but his name refers to the hidden place where Pluto lives, which is not necessarily synonymous with the Underworld itself.

In contrast, Erebus was the Greek god of The Underworld, and his name meant “place of darkness between earth and Hades.” Erebus is depicted as a dark-winged demon or dragon. He was also sometimes shown as a bearded man with swirls of darkness around him. Erebus is shown as emerging from Cimmerian darkness or Nyx’s mists in the artwork. Erebus was the father of many creatures and spirits in Greek mythology. Thanatos (the personification of death), Geras (the personification of old age), Momus (the essence of mockery), and Oizys (the spirit of woe, pain, and distress). He was also the grandfather of Nemesis (the goddess of retribution), the Fates, and the Moirae. Some sources also credit him as the father of Charon, the ferryman who transported souls across the river Styx to the Underworld. Erebus’ name is also sometimes used as a poetic term for death or darkness. It has been used in this way by many famous writers throughout history, including Homer, Dante, Milton, and Shakespeare. The name “Erebus” is used in astronomy as well. It is the name of the moon Pluto, as well as an island in Antarctica.

The Underworld, also known as Hades, is the Greek realm of the dead. The Underworld is a dark and shadowy place where an individual’s essence goes after death. The earliest conception of the afterlife in Greek mythology does not involve any sort of judgment or separation of good and bad people; instead, all the dead are indiscriminately grouped in this shadowy post-existence. However, later mythology (e.g., Platonic philosophy) began to introduce elements of post-mortem judgment, with good and bad people being separated into different areas of the Underworld and receiving other treatment. The Underworld is a dark and dreary place where the sun never shines, and there is no hope or joy. Once in the Underworld, the dead are assigned to one of three places:

  • Elysium (a paradise for heroes)
  • Tartarus (a terrible place for sinners)
  • Asphodel Meadows (a bland middle ground)

The Underworld is also home to several monsters and entities, such as Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog of Hades; Sisyphus, condemned to roll a boulder up a hill for eternity; and the Furies, who torment sinners. Once someone has entered Hades, they can never leave; it is a place from which there is no escape. The Greek underworld has inspired many famous cultural works, including the Inferno of Dante’s Divine Comedy and the realms of Hades in modern-day video games such as God of War. It is also the most commonly used setting in horror movies and television shows.

According to Greek historian Hesiod, Chaos was a place much like Tartarus and later the Heavens above. He described it as a place far away, underground and gloomy. As the first gods emerging from Chaos, Hesiod establishes the deities related to each element known. It began with the primordial elements: the Earth, the Sky, and the Sea (more on this soon). Hesiod also accounted for Zeus’ fight with the Titans, it’s not the fight itself, but the meaning of what’s taking place—described as an alarming heat that took over Chaos. It seemed to go out of Gaia and Uranus at once and rushed towards each other and met. The union tells us that Chaos moved away from her usual place of being between the earth and heaven and broke into the physical Universe. Hesiod then goes on to say that after their defeat, the Titans resided in Tartarus, similar to Chaos regarding its darkness and gloominess, and we can now say aligned or controlled by Chaos (Erebus).

Although there are differences between how Hesiod describes Chaos, there are more similarities than not. Greek understandings of the Underworld and the Chaotic realm describe chaos as a dark, empty void or primordial soup. She is the birthplace of the Universe or the first thing ever. In some accounts, Chaos is also the personification of disorder and chaos. Hesiod’s Chaos is interpreted as either the gap between Earth and Heaven or the abyss containing Tartarus. Chaos is simply the absence of order or structure. The two terms are used together to emphasize their contrast as the opposites of the cosmos. For example, one might say that the Universe began in a state of Chaos and has since evolved into a more ordered form of cosmos. It is also sometimes seen as a symbol of change or transformation. After all, anything born from Chaos is necessarily changing or transforming in some way. Any Elementals born first in this ancient war with Order manifested the first physical life on this planet. And with it, Chaos brought magic into the physical world.

What we know as reality is but a reflection of that event. We must dislodge the concept that human beings as we know them now existed at that time. Hesiod was accounting for something much older, any influence that the Ancient Greeks had was of the Greater Elementals’ retelling of a story from their understandings. And we are imparting this to consciousness, attempting to receive it. The only part of Hesiod’s grand story is one purposely hidden fact (though not by him, but by those entities trying to keep our history hidden). That is when Chaos fought its way into the physical Universe and magically manifested therein. It is this event that created what we experience as reality. Underlying all physical laws and interactions is the basis of all existence. To begin to understand it is to start on the arduous journey of unraveling the great mystery of our Universe. Erebus (and possibly Nyx) are the only entities created by Chaos solely. Erebus holds domain over the origination of the Underworld, which is the Outer Universe’s domain beyond consciousness. Erebus attempts to recreate a more hospitable place through Hades so that the truth fades into antiquity. And the once first born powerful Greater Elementals come under Chaos command as the now Titans. Yet all this happened, not through a pen, not even on this planet. The effects of who and what we are resides in our origination within the physical Universe. The Outer Universe’s war began in our young Milky Way’s center.

Viewing this event in a much larger understanding, we can now realize that the Primordial Deities were at war in a galaxy rather than a planet. Consciousness could conceive this fully at the time. Gaia does not represent earth but the material universe, as Uranus represents not the Sky but the eternal void outside the material universe. Chaos herself represents the breaking into the physical Universe (though the story redirects us to the one known as The Sea). The realization that we must fathom is that we are born from Chaos. And thus born enemy to our forefather, once having direct control over us, we now freely exist by consciousness. True magic is the manipulation of Chaotic Force. Our consciousness pulls from the Chaotic Realm and organizes it to Form within the material world. Manifestation differs significantly from the powers we wield through consciousness, discussed later. Here is where magic originated, and we will continue our journey after a deeper understanding of Chaos Magic. I present new techniques to create a universal approach to the practice of magic. 

The term Sigil refers to a pictorial representation of a deity or spirit. In modern usage, Sigils have grown to refer to a symbolic representation of the practitioner’s desired outcome. We can create sigils for any desire, goal, or dream imaginable. What’s needed is an intention and some form of symbolism to represent it. Sigils can be as simple as a drawing or doodling or as complicated as an elaborate multi-layered design. The key is to make sure the Sigil is personal and Meaningful to you. There are many ways to create Sigils, but the most crucial part is infusing your intention into the Symbol so that it can work its magic. 

Kia is a mystical concept that originated with Austin Osman Spare. The word comes from the ancient Egyptian word for “spirit” or “soul.” As with the Tao, Kia represents universal consciousness or unity. Numerous other occultists, such as Kenneth Grant, have adopted the concept, primarily influencing the chaos magic movement. Kia is a source of power and inspiration, and many chaos magicians believe it is accessible through meditation and trance states. It has also been linked to the “astral plane” – a higher level of reality accessed through altered states of consciousness. 

Magicians create Servitors specifically to perform tasks. They are buds of the magician’s psyche, given a name, trait, or Symbol for identification. Servitors, viewed consciously to understand how they affect the magician—servitors used for protection, healing, or divination, among other things. Servitors can be created for specific purposes or left general. As a magician, you should understand that servitors are part of your subconscious. Servitors can be helpful allies or dangerous adversaries, depending on their treatment. Magicians should use caution when working with servitors and be sure to dismiss them properly when finished. 

Egregore (pronounced EH-are-gawr, with the hard “g” sound) is used in demonology and occultism, initially referring to an angelic being or watcher. The concept has its roots in the Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphical work (a text whose claimed authorship is false) of the Old Testament. Groups of people can create egregores by generating similar thoughts or emotions that merge into a non-physical entity. This entity can influence the Thoughts, deeds, and even physical reality of the group that created it. Egregores can be both positive and negative; they can protect and enlighten their creators or enslave and deceive them. The word “Egregore” comes from the Greek prefix ἐκ- (ek-, meaning “out of”) and the root -grego, meaning “to watch.” It means “that which watches from within.” So an Egregore is an entity created by and watches over a group of people. Note that Egregores are not gods; they are human creations controlled by humans. However, they can become mighty if left unchecked. Many famous Egregores have existed throughout history, such as the Eye of Providence (also known as the Seal of the United States), which Freemasons designed to represent their god, Jehovah. Other notable Egregores include:

  • Moloch (the national god of ancient Carthage).
  • Baphomet (the iconic goat-headed deity associated with Satanism).
  • Cthulhu (the monster worshipped by the fictional cult of the same name).

While Egregores can be dangerous entities to avoid, they are also harnessed for good. For example, some groups use Egregores to protect themselves from harm or to achieve specific goals. In conclusion, Egregores are non-physical entities that arise from the collective thoughts of a group of people—both positive and negative forces in the lives of their creators. 

The Cut-Up Technique is a technique in which a written text is cut up and rearranged to create new content. Made public in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs. Cut-Up is often used as experimental writing and employed by many notable authors. In Cut-Up, a text is cut into pieces with scissors or another sharp instrument and then rearranged to create a new work. The Cut-Up technique will create found poetry or entirely new works of fiction or non-fiction. Cut-Up can also be used to deconstruct traditional narratives or explore texts’ meaning.

Playback is a magical technique developed by William S. Burroughs, primarily as a way of placing curses on people or places. Playback involves recording oneself speaking a curse or other magic words, then playing the recording back at a later time. The theory behind playback is that the words spoken during the recording will have a magical effect on the person or place. Later chaos magicians such as Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Carroll developed and commented on this technique. Playback is just one of many techniques used in chaos magic, which is a non-dogmatic and experimental approach to magic that emphasizes the power of the individual practitioner. 

Synchromysticism is the practice of connecting mystical or esoteric significance to coincidences of events. The word, a portmanteau of Synchronicity and mysticism, was coined by Jake Kotze in August 2006. As Steven Sutcliff and Carole Cusack explain, synchromysticism is “part artistic practice, part spiritual or metaphysical system, part conspiracy culture.” It appears to exist at the fringe of previously considered fringe areas. In contrast, Jason Horsley describes it as “a form of postmodern animism” that “combines Jung’s notion of meaningful coincidences with the quest for the divine, or self-actualization through the experience of the divine.” Synchronicity, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, holds that events are “meaningfully related,” regardless of whether there is any apparent causal connection. Synchro-Mystics apply this concept to many phenomena, from art and pop culture to history and current events. Proponents of synchromysticism often find hidden patterns and relationships in seemingly random data, which they believe reveal hidden meanings and truths. While some see synchromysticism as a way to access hidden knowledge, others view it as a form of entertainment or an aesthetic experience. It is sometimes criticized for embracing conspiracy theories and relying on confirmation bias. However, many proponents of synchromysticism argue that it is a valuable way of understanding the world and can lead to new insights and perspectives.

Divination is to gain insight into a question or situation through an occultic, standardized process or ritual. Diviners understand their interpretations of how a querent should proceed by reading signs, events, omens, or alleged contact with a supernatural agency. Divination has had various forms throughout history. The known Oracle of Amun at the Siwa Oasis became famous when Alexander visited it after conquering Egypt from Persia in 332 BC. Oracles and Seers in ancient Greece both practiced divination. The prophecies of the oracles were understood to be the direct will of the gods on earth. The high demand for oracles resulted in limited availability, and divination became widespread throughout Greece. Many types of people consult seers for advice and predictions. Divination was even practiced in Roman society, though it was looked down upon by the government. Divination continued to be popular throughout medieval Europe and into the Renaissance. Modern-day prophecy includes tarot readings, palmistry, and tea leaf readings. Divination is still practiced today by people all over the world who are seeking guidance and answers to their questions. 

Incantations are magical formulas that trigger a magical effect on a person or object. The procedure can be spoken, sung, or chanted during ceremonial rituals or prayers. Incantations are found in many different cultures and for various purposes, such as healing the sick, providing protection, or bringing good luck. In some cultures, incantations ward off evil spirits or demons. Incantations usually consist of a series of words or phrases that create a specific result when spoken aloud. Incantations harness the power of the spoken word to achieve the desired outcome. Incantations can be powerful tools, but they should always be used with caution and knowledge, as misuse can lead to negative consequences.

Chaos Magic has its roots in Gnosticism, and we can say that it is a revitalization of ancient practices. Gnosticism is a belief system with ancient roots. It teaches that the world is fundamentally spiritual and that humans are divine beings who have come to earth to experience life. They believed that the material world is illusory and that inner growth can only find actual reality in the spiritual realm. Chaos magic has its roots in Gnosticism, and practitioners use gnosis or the gnostic state to achieve an altered state of consciousness. In this state, the mind has only one goal or thought, and all other distractions disperse. The Gnostic state allows magicians to bypass the “filter” of the mind, which is necessary for working in most forms of this art. To achieve a Gnostic state through meditation would take years to master. Chaos magicians often employ other methods to attain this state briefly. These methods include drugs, sex, sleep deprivation, and sensory overload. By achieving a Gnostic state through one of these methods, chaos magicians can work magic more effectively. As with many types of magic, you will find that it never dies out, only resurfaces throughout generations in new forms. When we learn the who and what we follow, consciousness brings forth an unfathomable power into our practices.
