HISTORIQUE DU FONDATEUR / DU GROUPE
Il est difficile pour des "étrangers" de vérifier et de vérifier les informations fournies par l'Ordre des Neuf Angles (ONA) en ce qui concerne ses débuts. Comme beaucoup de ces groupes ésotériques, le récit fondateur est tout autant un récit mythique. Selon l'Ordre, il découle de l'unification de trois groupes païens / wiccans (Camlad, le Temple du Soleil et les Noctuliens) orchestrés par une «grande maîtresse» non nommée à la fin des 1960. Anton Long ONA1aurait été l’un des premiers à être initié à l’ordre par la grande maîtresse de 1973. [Image à droite] La maîtresse a émigré en Australie et Anton Long est devenu le nouveau Grand Maître. Depuis le milieu de la période 1970 jusqu’à aujourd’hui, un flux continu de textes totalisant plusieurs milliers de pages a été produit, décrivant et codifiant la tradition sinistre que l’ONA prétend suivre. Plusieurs lodges ou temples ont été référencés au fil des années, principalement en Grande-Bretagne, mais plus récemment en Australie, aux États-Unis et dans plusieurs autres pays. Leur taille exacte, leur emplacement et leur existence sont difficiles à déterminer. En 1988, l’Ordre a commencé la publication de son propre journal, Fenrir, qui a été produit de façon sporadique mais continue, le dernier numéro en date étant publié dans 2013. Plusieurs sites Web publient régulièrement de nouveaux articles de l'Ordre, mais comme l'ONA n'a jamais été une organisation composée de membres et que la plupart des adeptes travaillent dans la solitude et le secret, il est difficile d'évaluer sa taille, son organisation et son fonctionnement actuels (Senholt 2012).

DOCTRINES / CROYANCES

L’ordre des neuf angles suit ce qu’il appelle la tradition sinistre et le ONA2Seven Fold Way. [Image at right]  The way of the ONA is first and foremost an individual path of personal “sinister” undertakings that are conducted over a prolonged, and often lifelong, period. It is a system of self-assessment, self-insight and Nietzschean self-overcoming. The Order in many ways is antinomian in the classical sense (often advocated by self-declared adherents of Satanism and the Left Hand Path) but seeks to transcend any kind of labeling or dogmatism.

The ONA distinguishes between what it calls the causal (the physical, this-worldly cosmos), and the acausal (the super- and supra-natural realm and the place of existence for immortals who have transcended death). A key element in the system of the ONA is the belief in cosmic evolution; that is the evolvement of history through various “aeons” that have dominated different human civilizations, and that can be advanced through what it calls “sinister dialectics.” According to the ONA we are currently living in the fifth, Western Aeon, which will culminate with imperial governance and the emergence of a galactic Imperium, if the civilization is able to disentangle itself from what the Order calls the “Magian” influence of the Judeo-Christian tradition (ONA XNUMX). The idea of aeons civilizational cycles most likely originates from authors such as Oswald Spengler and Arnold J. Toynbee but is infused with an additional layer of esotericism (Senholt XNUMX).

The Order advocates an elitist type of spirituality, and the conduction of “aeonic magick,” which has the explicit purpose of opening gates (nexions) to the acausal world in order to propel forth a shift in aeons and the coming of a new man. The sorcery or ‘dark arts’ of the ONA is according to the Order a processing of discovering and knowing the esoteric nature of living beings, as well as the ability to access and presence (make present) certain acausal energies. The ONA rejects classic good-evil dichotomies and instead talks of the ‘sinister-numinous’ as a way of living and manifesting a new kind of being in balance with the cosmos (Order of Nine Angles website).

RITUELS / PRATIQUES

The ONA advocates a practice that combines both esoteric (occult) and exoteric, real world actions. This element of “direct action” is often conducted during so-called “insight roles,” which are meant to be roles that both teach the initiates to transcend and expand their own personal ethics and behavioral boundaries, while at the same time effecting real world and “aeonic” change in the world. Examples of insight roles include various forms of anti-societal actions, such as those of National Socialists, radical Islamists and direct-action environmentalists and anarchists. For those with a strong antinomian nature, insight roles could also include joining the police or the armed forces, or traditional religious orders. Another aspect of the physical element is the emphasis on physical training and outdoor living, with extended outdoor rituals of solitude; these make ONA unique by comparison with similar initiatory organizations.

Une pratique clé est constituée par les rituels destinés à «présumer» (manifester) un lien, qui est un lien entre le monde causal et le monde causal. Cette connexion est souvent liée à un lieu géographique spécifique qui, au fil du temps, est imprégné de l’énergie nécessaire pour manifester un «portail» permanent, ainsi que pour faire de l’initié un lien de vie permanent.

The Order distinguishes between classical ceremonial magic (described primarily in its Black Book of Satan et Naos) and hermetic magic. The latter is less fixed to a certain text or setting, but is more “emotional” and intuitive in nature, usually done either in solitude or with a single other person (Order of Nine Angles website n.d.d).

ORGANISATION / LEADERSHIP

Il n’existe pas de dirigeants nommés de l’ONA, mais certains sites Web publient de nouvelles ONA3authoritative texts signed by the ONA, often in conjunction with a handful of select names, the most prominent being Anton Long. [Image at right]

Le système de grades de l'Ordre est septénaire et correspond aux sept sphères de la tradition gréco-romaine: (1) Néophyte, (2) Initié, (3) Adepte externe, (4) Adepte interne, (5) Maître du temple / Maîtresse de la Terre [ou «Lady Master»], (6) Grand Maître / Grande Maîtresse [ou Magus et «Grand Lady Master»], et (7) Immortelle.

The Neophyte conducts a ritual of self-initiation, the initiate takes on an insight role as described earlier, trains to undertake various physical challenges and conducts a grade ritual. The external adept needs to organize and recruit a group of members along with another insight role and a three to six month long grade ritual. The internal adept includes further development of personal character and tasks related his nexion, insight role and talents over a five to eleven year period before undertaking a grade ritual of the Abyss, which involves living in a cavern for a lunar cycle to become Master.

The last step is only attainable at death. The other degrees are obtained over several years by conducting certain specific tasks and rituals, which are openly presented by the Order. Advancement is mostly a question of self-initiation and self-assessment unless definite contact with senior Order members has been established (Order of Nine Angles n.d.c).

QUESTIONS / DEFIS

Il y a plusieurs problèmes et défis concernant l'ONA.

Le premier est l’absence de sources externes vérifiables, ce qui rend difficile l’évaluation des demandes formulées par l’Ordre en termes de taille, d’historique et d’action.

The second issue relates to the identity of Anton Long, which is widely believed to be the pen-name used by David Myatt. There are several historical, textual and linguistic coincidences that would lead scholars as well as ONA adherents to believe that Long and Myatt are one and the same, but this connection has consistently been denied by Myatt himself. Scholars such as Goodrick-Clarke assumes that Myatt and Long are the same in his book Black Sun, and quotes an article from the far-left anti-racist magazine Projecteur, but does not provide any definite proof. In addition the numerous linguistic, thematic and timeline overlaps, which for example can be seen in Anton Longs autobiography Diablerie – The Secret Life of a Satanist, which is remarkably similar to Myatt’s own life, and used by Goodrick-Clarke to establish biographical dates of Myatt’s life, there exists ONA manuscripts from XNUMX with David Myatt’s name on them, later anonymized to be authored by the ONA and an R. Venn. The earliest writings by the ONA and David Myatt where both published by Myatt’s own Thormynd Press, which is another direct link between the two (Senholt XNUMX; Goodrick-Clarke XNUMX; Venn XNUMX).

Related to the identity of Anton Long is the shift in the ideology associated with the ONA and specifically its insight roles. During the late XNUMXs Myatt was active in the British neo-Nazi group the National Socialist Movement (NSM) and wrote tracts on “Aryan Revolution,” the most prominent being “A Practical Guide to the Strategy and Tactics of Revolution,” which included advice on various forms of direct and covert revolutionary action including assassinations and terror bombings (Goodrick-Clarke XNUMX; Myatt XNUMX). A former member of the NSM, David Copeland became known as the “London Nail Bomber” after conducting three bomb attacks in April XNUMX, and a BBC news special speculated that Myatt served as an inspiration for the attack although this has never been demonstrated in court (BBC XNUMX). During the same period the ONA released a newsletter called Temple XNUMX, with XNUMX referring to the letter HH, short for Heil Hitler. In later years, coinciding with Myatt’s conversion to Islam in XNUMX, the Nazi symbolism and ideological references have become less frequent, but becoming a National Socialist is still listed as a suggested insight-roles. According to the ONA however, the ultimate aim of the Order is to transcend current ideological labels.

There is no definitive agreement on the meaning and origin of the term “nine angles,” but various explanations have been offered. Both the satanic organizations the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set have references to the Nine Angles, as Church of Satan’s founder LaVey published a complete ritual, the “Ceremony of the Nine Angles” in his Satanic Rituals which was originally devised by Temple of Set founder, Michael Aquino, on LaVey’s request (Aquino XNUMX; LaVey XNUMX). The Temple of Set still refers to the Nine Angles, for example, with Aquino issuing a commentary on the Seal of the Nine Angles (Aquino XNUMX). The ONA rejects this connection and claims that the nine angles are connected to the septenary “Tree of Wyrd,” representing seven sphere, the system as a whole representing an eight, and mystery and the abyss representing a ninth. The Order thus connects the nine to the practice of black magic, with the nine representing various physical sound or energy vibrations, and on a metaphysical level representing the Aeons. According to the ONA the nine angles are here connected with both alchemical processes, and also with the “Star Game,” a magic game to be constructed and played as part of the initiatory process, and “Aeonic Magick,” which are essential parts of the magic practiced in the ONA (Order of Nine Angles n.d.a).

The final challenge is related to the first, namely that the ONA condones and encourages human sacrifice, referring to its victims as opfers and its process as “culling.” These practices are described in various Order texts, including “A Gift for the Prince – A Guide to Human Sacrifice.” According to the Order the victims will be test, unknowingly, and have thus in a sense chosen themselves as potential targets. The sacrifice can be carried out either by physical or magical means, but no ONA group has publicly admitted to conducting such practice, and there have been no confirmed examples of actual sacrifices. Several rites of destruction are more symbolic than physical in nature, and the Order describe that the rites described are portrayed ‘for historical interest only’ (Order of Nine Anagles n.d.d).
