The Sith Lord’s Quest

Sithism, The Force
{This is an excerpt from Sith Academy: Lords of the Force.} The great quest of the Sith Lord is for a Source of unlimited power; that is the Holy Grail of our kind. We delve into every kind of open and occult knowledge and pursue every sort of path, looking for the keys to more Force power. For some, this quest is mystical, leading them to pursue esoteric inner visions, advanced meditations, yogas and the like. For some it is magickal, driving them to study black sorcery, ritualism and demonology. For some it is scientific, drawing them to a deeper understanding of nature and control of the physical universe. For some it is artistic, inspiring them to pursue aesthetic visions and artistic creations. For some it is personal, compelling them to…

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…

The Nine Pillars of Sithism

Sithism
{ This is an excerpt from Book One of Sith Academy: Acolyte Training. } Sithism is the dark side philosophy and path of power followed by the Sith. In Darkspeech we call it Zith-Zovrâd (Sith Philosophy) or Zithodûn (Sithism). Below are the nine Pillars, or fundamental precepts, of this philosophy. The Primacy of Power “What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the Will to Power, power itself in man. What is bad? All that proceeds from weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power increases—that a resistance is overcome.” This belief in the primacy of power (râkâ) is the Diamond Rule of Sithism. The Tao of Darwin Darwinian evolution is the central fact of life on this planet. From the simplest microbes to the most complex intelligent life…

Traditionalism

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…

Sithism as a Formless Path

Sithism
{ The following is an excerpt from our next book in the "Nine Echelons of Sith Mastery" series: Dark Side Philosophy. } In 1938, the influential Zen teacher D. T. Suzuki wrote the following about his religion: Zen has no special doctrine or philosophy, no set of concepts or intellectual formulas, except that it tries to release one from the bondage of birth and death, by means of certain intuitive modes of understanding peculiar to itself. It is, therefore, extremely flexible in adapting itself to almost any philosophy and moral doctrine as long as its intuitive teaching is not interfered with. It may be found wedded to anarchism or fascism, communism or democracy, atheism or idealism, or any political or economic dogmatism. It is, however, generally animated with a certain…
