Memento Mori

Philosophy, Sithism
{ Below are excerpts from Sith Academy: Dark Side Philosophy and Book of the Black Sun} Memento Mori The Dark Side disciple should keep certain symbols at hand—black suns, skulls, black robes, etc.—as reminders that he will die. Indeed, these symbols are a reminder that everything in existence—ourselves, our friends and families, our tribes, our races, our civilizations, our species, our planet, our sun, our galaxy, our entire universe—is doomed to destruction. As the ancient Chinese sages said, when asked for a saying that is true in all times and places: “this, too, shall pass”. Nothing in this world is eternal. The fate of everything is Darkness. Nothing can escape its destiny in the Void of the Black Sun. Unlike the modern Lightsider who lives in denial and mortal fear…

World-Rejection

Black Sunnism, Philosophy
{This is an excerpt from Book of the Black Sun, by the Dark Lords.} Black Sunnism entails the metaphysical rejection of the White Sunlit world of matter—a radical notion in this age, but one which it holds in common with many traditional religions and philosophies. Christianity and Islam teach that the true, eternal life is not of this world, which is a place of testing, sin and Satan’s traps; Buddhism teaches that the “three marks of existence” are anicca (impermanence), dukkha (suffering) and anatta (non-self); Hinduism and Buddhism both teach that the goal of life is to become liberated from the cycle of reincarnation (samsara) and reach a state of moksha (enlightenment) which lies beyond material incarnation; Gnostics believe that the material world is an evil realm ruled by the…

Traditionalism

Philosophy, Sithism
{ The following is an excerpt from our forthcoming book: Sith Academy: Dark Side Philosophy.} Traditionalism is a school of thought developed primarily by European intellectuals in the 20th century as a reaction to the revolutionizing and disorienting effects of modernity. Traditionalists seek to re-connect to those primal currents of philosophy and spirituality that they believe all great pre-modern civilizations had in common—the “perennial wisdom” of universal, eternal metaphysical truths. The emphasis of Traditionalism is on the restoration of perennial metaphysics to its rightful place as the guiding philosophy for society, rather being discarded as a useless relic of an unenlightened age. Major exponents of Traditionalism include René Guénon, Frithjof Schuon, Julius Evola, Hossein Nasr and Huston Smith.

Metaphysics of the Source

Metaphysics of the Source

Philosophy, Sithism
{ This is an excerpt from Book Three of "Sith Academy: Acolyte Training". } The Source In the Dark Lords' metaphysical system, the Force flows from the Source—the formless source of faith, passion and power that takes different forms to different beings in different times and places. God, the Devil, the Black Sun, the White Sun, Shiva, Rudra, Ra, Apollo, Jesus, Wotan, Adi-Buddha, Logos, Natural Law, Reason, the Nation—these are examples of forms the Source has taken to various peoples and orders. But the Source is larger than any of these forms; it resembles the concepts of Brahman, the Tao, Shunyata and Ein Sof in Hinduism, Taoism, Zen Buddhism and Judaism, respectively—the ultimate principle, purpose or intelligence behind the myriad manifestations of existence, which has no inherent form and cannot…
