Occult & esoteric books/magazines.. organisations. Perhaps also something which includes certain "cultural"/"mystic". Lets say, Aorta booklets for example.

Ixaxaar in general, is best place in Finland, and very recommended for world wide attention as well. Majority of their output is in English. Most of their titles are or have been distributed by myself as well. Their distribution covers Traditional Witchcraft, Occult Literature, Occult Journals, Ceremonial Magick, Satanism, Esoteric Literature, Ritual Music,...  Always high quality releases. Sold out old releases includes works connected to Order of Nine Angles, Temple Ov Blood, Azazelin Tähti, etc.. http://www.ixaxaar.com/

Azazelin Tähti (a.k.a. Star of Azazel) society of satanic theosophy. Several publications, I think all in Finnish. Some info: http://www.azazel.fi/english.shtml


My own personal stand point is most often very much (even too much?) of practical. If ideology or religion offers nothing concrete benefit, it has no value. In seek of knowledge and enlightenment, dragging of too many dogmas or limitation works against the goal. As would focusing on superficially cool, yet spiritually/ideologically empty content.

Primordia

http://www.libreriaprimordia.it/Cataloghi/Edizioni_Primordia.pdf

They used to run a hefty fanzine/magazine, in which they published a lot of lesser known Crowley and Spare's literary, esoteric and artistic outputs - at the moment, they run a bookstore in Milan.

which published in Italy some of the best (private) editions of Austin Osman Spare's books, focusing a lot also on the artistic side of the British Magician

I've had a passing interest in the concept of Gnostic Satanism or Anti-Cosmic Satanism, since it seems to relate to the idea of the universe coming from chaos, that is, matter coming from energy, which is pretty close to some theories of how the universe began and is forming.

I think the Chaos Gnostic Genesis does not correlate with the cosmological understanding of cosmic birth. For example, if matter was born from pure energy (even though matter itself can be viewed as energy too (mass is energy, movement is energy etc. which are both properties of matter)) there had to be the so called laws of nature present, the reason being that energy appears to work mechanically under the laws of nature as well. The Anti-Cosmic Satanistic view on the primal Chaos tells us that Chaos is lawless, so I don't see it working that way. (I hope you got my point, I'm not so good expressing myself with words.)

I'm personally more fond of the abstract kind of philosophies when it comes to occultism and esoteric topics, because religions and other not natural scientific explanations seem to always lose when it comes to understanding the physical macrocosmos.

I don't think Mc Intosh perhaps meant it is the same. Gnostic beliefs obviously include elements, which is not all about "natural science". Add demiurge to picture and laws of nature lose it's importance.

I've been a practicing Thelemite for going on 10 years. I am a member of both the T.O.T. (no, not the O.T.O. completely different Orders) for 3 years and the A.'.A.'. (I can't lay claim to my grade nor can I say anything about how long I have been there) and I was a member of the Golden Dawn for a year and made it to 4=7 but it just wasn't for me. Some magazines that I read are the Black Pearl, The Equinox (of course!) and In the Continium.

Yes, but that was later, after it was well-established in Judaism. In other words, it was derivative. In my humble opinion, it is best to take all creation myths NOT at face value and NOT with a grain of salt, but to analyze them and scrutinize them intensely.

all hails to them, the reprinted and translated lots of obscure stuff from Satanism, Celtic tradition to shitload of amusing voudou/santieria stuff.

The shop looks like a new age one with plenty of mother earth brick-a-brack, then you turn on the left and hells break loose ;)
Dario spada is a nice fellow.

By the way. Best books on the subject - Ur Group - "Introduction to magic".

I've been an active member of C.O.S. around 15-17 years ago. I quickly lost any kind of interest for them and all the crap around that group. I've also been an active odinist during many years as a member of Heathen Front, managing the canadian chapter (only the french/Quebecer one later). I still have a vivid interest for occultism and religion in general. I do enjoy Karlsson, Crowley, Evola, and many other writers working on heathenism, satanism/luciferianism, shamanism/ecstatic cults (the subject of my Master degree thesis), meditation, etc.

The latest release by my (not noise or PE) band Ceramic Hobs is being released on the imprint of this small group which is somewhere between art and occult - some very interesting reading on the site - http://www.okok.org.uk/

As a young kid in the early 80s I was on the TOPY mailing list, for a long time I forgot about it all and found my teenage interest in sigil magick quite embarrassing (especially as PTV's music got so bad and TOPY became very cliched and hippy as it expanded in the late 80s). Nowadays I feel glad that I was exposed to such interesting views on life and reality at an impressionable age, along with things like the writings on Crass sleeves too.

I do hope one of these turns out to be right... just to spite people.
