Perspicacious Comment About David Myatt

Given below is a comment about David Myatt, recently posted on an Internet forum by a user named Silvertongue.

The forum in question is for ENFP types – that’s those who identify with a particular Jungian personality type, based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Thus, as you might imagine, this is not your typical dumb-ass Internet forum.

This comment is one of the most illuminating – one of the most perspicacious – I’ve come across concerning David Myatt, exposing as it does (IMO) the real Myatt and his real aims: which are, first, to develop a new species of human beings (Homo Galacticus), not be eugenics or anything so passée, but by having individuals accept and overcome physical, psychic, intellectual, and social, challenges (pathei-mathos), and, second, the exploration and colonization of the stars, which of itself, in his view will, aid and produce this new species. Myatt has devoted his whole adult life to these objectives – to Vindex, and the emergence of a Galactic Imperium.

” I think you would really get a lot out of… investigating ”David Myatt” and ”Anton Long” (they’re the same person, despite their denials of this). Don’t stop when you see that he’s a Nazi or Muslim fundamentalist or a Satanist or a whatever else… go beyond media reports etc. to the sites actually dedicated to working out what he’s truly about. One of the most interesting characters of our century or any other.

The more you read about him, the less you’ll be sure of, the more interesting he’ll become….

You’ll see why its relevant during your research. He’s something of an inspiration for me, although I was unaware of his work before I began mine. I have to admit that he’s more skilled than I am (although, when I’m really trying, I’m a better writer. The deofel quintet is truly awful).

A hint that will help you understand: his work with the order of nine angles is closer to the core than his work as a Muslim fundamentalist or a Nazi, but it is not the core. Look beyond, beyond the forms he uses. Look to how he manipulates those forms in order to achieve different ends.

He’s not a Satanist or a Nazi or a Muslim, essentially. Those are forms which he has, very effectively, manipulated to the extent that his individual agenda (wyrd) has become a permanent and self-propagating aspect of those subcultures. Modern national socialism and modern occultism, for example, have both been deeply influenced. Those may seem like backwaters– but they’re significant subcultures which have the power to affect society by their relationship to it, the degree to which they are in antipathy with other subcultures, and the way in which they attract and alter a certain kind of individual who is hugely influential upon society (the ”shaman”, the true priest, the poet).

By altering those forms, he essentially alters the subtle structure of all society. Also consider that subcultures such as occultism significantly affect more mainstream media (because creators of such are often drawn to them in youth etc), and that by permanently influencing the nature of such a subculture, the media which determines the psychophysiological environment of all society can be altered.

The forms are not the message. Satanism is not the message. Nazism is not the message. Islam is not the message. They are manipulated to become vessels for Myatt’s agenda (the stars?). Believe me, you will find curious research on this fascinating.”

Personally, I agree with the comment above about the Deofel Quintet – for it’s not great writing, and not in the same league as newer fiction such as Eulalia, Dark Daughter of Baphomet, and In The Sky of Dreaming.

But I guess the Deofel Quintet served a useful function in it’s now gone day – which was being read aloud to a small group of Occult initiates, in an intimate candle-lit setting. You no doubt can imagine the clichéd scene – ” It was a dark and stormy night, but inside the Satanic temple it was warm with a roaring log fire…”

Or something such as  – ” Are you sitting comfortably, children? Then I’ll begin. Once upon a time….”

P.P.S. (For the MOAC) – I was gonna use the spelling develope to yank your chain, but thought this comment would be even more fun.
