WE SWEAR TO:
1. BE THE CHOSEN OF THE VOID. Service to the Abyss is a privilege, not a duty. It is a sacred responsibility to represent the Void, to explore its truths, and to share its revelations with others. The idea of ‘evil’ appeals to many, but few are actually able to hear the call of the Abyss and respond.
2. BRING THE ABYSS INTO THIS WORLD. Our tradition holds that this universe is cut off from the Abyss. Whether it is outside, beyond, or trapped, we know that it can access this world through cracks in the spiritual fabric, created through pain, suffering, and esoteric practices.
3. LIVE (ONLY) TO FURTHER ITS ALIEN AGENDA FOR THE COSMOS. The Abyss demands all or nothing. To serve the Abyss is to know that you must offer everything and everyone in your life as a potential casualty of its inscrutable plans. Your own hopes and dreams are only relevant insofar as they may be expressions of its own malignant will.
4. SPILL BLOOD. The Abyss demands sacrifice. All blood is fit for sacrifice, from whatever source – yours as well as others. Blood is life, and life must be offered to the Abyss and to its entities. There is no bloodless path to the Void.
5. SAY NO TO LIFE. ABANDON HOPE. There is no hope in false gods and idols. Only through the Abyss can we achieve true peace, by becoming a part of its super(un)consciousness. Only through merging with terror itself can you overcome your fears. Other religious traditions offer hope of salvation or freedom of suffering, but they are lying. Do not place your hope in gods that cannot save themselves.
6. EMBRACE DEATH. The Abyss offers true death of the false-ego. There is no return and no escape from its embrace, because you cease to be you, and become part of something infinite. True death is true peace as part of the eternal darkness beyond life and death.
7. USE THIS LIFETIME TO LEARN HOW TO ESCAPE REINCARNATION, SO WE CAN BE DISSOLVED BACK INTO THE VOID. Only through convergence with the Abyss can we escape the useless cycle of suffering and reincarnation. Otherwise, we are tools of the gods and subject to their whims and dictates. The Abyss is the only possible escape from the cycle.
8. CREATE ART, MUSIC, AND TEXT THAT PERSONIFIES THE IMPERSONAL HORROR OF THE VOID. The revelations of the Void can be shown to others. Media like art, music, and narrative are powerful tools for communicating the strange, contradictory truths of the Abyss which can only be transmitted through oblique paths. The Abyss wants to be experienced, and so we must create those channels through which it can be perceived by others.
9. BUILD SHRINES ALTARS FOR THE ABYSS. SACRIFICE OURSELVES AND OTHERS. The worship of the Abyss constitutes a grave violation of the spiritual laws of the cosmos. Every altar, every offering, every shrine and blot that is consecrated to the Abyss serves as a doorway for it into the cosmos.
10. CONSUME. CONVERGE. Daily, we consume the energies of the people and cultures around us, and turn them into the power of the Void. Through us, the Abyss is able to absorb spiritual and cosmic energies, which it warps into its own complex patterns. We serve as the hands of the Abyss in this world, and each act (each spell, each meditation, each offering) bring us closer to convergence with it.
11. COMMIT ACTS OF ESOTERIC TERRORISM. Like the Diabolus who is our general, we seek to destabilize the cosmic order on a spiritual level. We are not concerned with politics revolutions, because the physical universe is already contaminated. Our violent attacks are artistic, literary, musical, and magickal, because that is the only lasting way to affect the masses.
12. DESTABILIZE THE SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS OF THE COSMIC WORLD. We are at war with the gods and their followers. We are engaged in subverting spiritual powers and causing the erosion of established religion. Through demonic sacrifices and artistic expression, we will shatter and defile the psychic stability of whatever community we inhabit.
