Non-identity: the Mask 

We play different roles in our lives; we are “occupied” by different causal identities: sister, brother, mother, father, employee,… As the Western Apocalyps draws nearer those ‘human’ identities upon which our bourgeois-cherished personal stories are based, do not matter.

My Acephalic mysticism emphasizes the importance of the occult mask. The mask had a central place in the Dionysian mysteries. The initiates wore masks during plays and ritual as a way to cast out their social identities. It has mistakenly been regarded from a human point of view, namely a way to cast out one’s inner demons and passions. Such interpretations are quite anthropocentric and thus part of the whole modernist sickness. This form of ecstacy (ek-stasis), this form of standing out of oneself was an invitation to the pagan gods.  The initiates were enthousiastic: ‘en theo’: they invited the gods to possess them. The gods were asked to possess the initiates and thus masks were put on. Infernal and acausal energy was transferred to the initiates.

Therefore as a masked one I invite the Unheimliche forces of the Acausal. They may enter my body as Temple. I am ready to confess my bourgeois sins, and partake in the nameless crimes over and over again, as a Way of Redemption.
