Scales of the Serpent draws its primary inspiration from Kenneth Grantís Nightside of Eden and the exploration of those realms analogous to what Michael Bertiaux refers to as Universe B.
The book comprises the sigils of the cells of the qliphoth from Liber CCXXXI (with commentary) presented in a form intended to facilitate meditation and visionary work in accessing the back of the Tree of Life, the nightside, which prior to Grantís work had been ignored or denied.
A separate and substantial text explores threads leading towards the void which is the gateway to the reverse of the Tree, that noumenal nothing of which the phenomenal something is but the illusory reversed reflection, and gives some indications as to the methods employed and routes taken by earlier explorers, intentionally or otherwise.
These particular threads have been picked up and followed as a result of the authorís workings within the Ordo Typhonis and, more specifically within the Lamal Lodge.
Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, where writing and the first cities developed in the 4th Millennium BCE, is also the birthplace of Western Magick. Known as the Art of Marduk to the Babylonians, Magick was used in the earliest historical records for protection, healing, to bind and control spirits, and to gain the favor of the gods. Despite its foundational importance, very few modern witches or magicians know much about the Mesopotamian origins of their art. Sumerian Exorcism, compiled by renowned occult scholar Michelle Belanger, aspires to reveal this long forgotten knowledge to the contemporary reader. Containing illustrative examples of ancient Mesopotamian spells, along with commentary and explanatory essays, this book explores the beliefs and practices at the very heart of modern Witchcraft, Demonology, and Ceremonial Magick. -Adam, Magus Arch Minion
