17th June 2013: Esoteric Order of Beelzebub

For the past few months, I have been corresponding with Houston-based EBM/darkwave musician Paul Frederic (Asmodeus X).


We share some common interests that were a major part of my life in the 199os, and whilst writing for and editing the Disinformation website: the Gurdjieff Work; the Temple of Set; Spiral Dynamics; Neuro-linguistic Programming; futures studies and strategic foresight (which I studied in a Masters program at Australia’s Swinburne University); and the metaprogramming approaches of John C. Lilly and Robert Anton Wilson. The deep theme running through these different currents, organisations and methods is willed, sovereign, self-change and creative Action in the world.


I recently joined theĀ Esoteric Order of Beelzebub: a confederation of independent artist-entrepreneurs (James Altucher), which Frederic made me aware of. The EOB’s mission statements is “leveraging conscious evolution!” Its public imagery draws on diverse sources: astrobiological space imagery; comparative religion and historical daemonology/goetia; libertarian economics; and the contemporary techno-sciences.


Many of my EOB contributions will be posted to this personal blog.
