I JUST RECEIVED THIS ON MY STREAM SO I THOUGHT ID SHARE
The 'ayes' have it. So Satanic philosophy it is then. Rather than inflicting my own continued ramblings on you, I've yoinked this from the archives - the introductory article penned by pre-eminent theosophist Madame Blavatsky in the first edition of the magazine 'Lucifer'. In it she investigates the true relevance of the name, and why it should be atop the list of 'must worship' concepts for the wise. Whilst not overtly 'Satanic' the theosophists and Gnostics are owed a debt by our kind, and her legendary words are most worthy of note.
I'm posting this in two chunks (it's quite long) and have edited out a middle section that consists of a transcript of some supposed bit of social chit chat on the subject, which really does nothing more than contextualise it within the prevailing society. The real meat and potatoes tops and tails this section of what in my mind is fluff. Anyhoo, gentle reader - Part The First:
15th September 1887
Volume 1, Issue 1
WHAT'S IN A NAME? - WHY THE MAGAZINE IS CALLED "LUCIFER".
By Madame Blavatsky.
