I've had an interest in this concept for a while, not so much to join in on anything but more with the actual ideology/philosophy/theology it's supposed to be. I'm hoping those with a bit more insight can let us know what can be known.

All I know is it's supposed to be the faith of choice for a number of Black Metal bands, which seem to be the main propagandists. I understand it's also referred to as Satanic Gnosticism, or something like that. The idea of the universe itself being some kind of aberration that needs to be done away with - it strikes me more or less as the ultimate nihilism, apart from the concept of worshipping or at least communing with some kind of chaotic forces beyond the universe.

Anyway, it strikes me as an interesting idea, so more details would be appreciated. I dare say there's a lot that's occult and not meant for the rest of us, but what can generally be made known would be just as interesting.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/29036646/Temple-of-the-Black-Light

Unfortunately, the TOTBL site is gone, they had a lot of interesting texts - from incantations and incense recipes to the baseline philosophies of 218 and all that. Guess that DISSECTION, ARCKANUM and WATAIN are the biggest names within that "scene" - Jon Nödveidt starting up the MLO back in the 90's, Johan of Arckanum with his archaic stuff.

One of the few reports from MLO "insiders", detailing some of the stuff they do, can be found in the anthology "No Tears for Queers", about hate crime against gays; since Nödveidt took part in killing a homosexual, the journalist sought out some anti-Cosmic practitioners. Apparently according to that text - hard to tell what's truth and what's bullshit - initiation rites include slaughtering a bunch of cats. Went to a party at a bunch of guys' apartment, they were in a black metal band and apparently trying to make way into the "chaos-gnostic" scene. Very important that they were doing stuff, but were not allowed to spill any information. Guess it attracts a lot chaotic individuals who are searching for a spiritual home.

EDIT: that link contains everything I remember from their old website, except the evil-looking demonic imagery.

The more serious practitioners seem to be very ecclectic & multicultural. Voudou (or how it's spelled), Babylonian mythology, rune mysticism, Aghori - everything is welcome.

I've seen the term but never investigated until now. It looks pretty complicated:

1. Genesis

In the beginning, there was nothing but the energy of Chaos. Absu and Tiamat slept, and dreamed their darkest dreams. And all was good until their dark dreams began to spawn the cosmic gods. Tiamat and Absu were disgusted by these abominations. Their wailing disturbed Tiamat’s and Absu’s sleep. Absu and Tiamat agreed that these worthless abominations must be destroyed.
Enki, the self-proclaimed leader of the cosmic gods, formulated a most evil plan: he would kill Absu to protect himself. Enki proceeded to trick Absu, which resulted in the death of Absu. Upon hearing what happened to Absu, Tiamat was in a rage. She prepared for war against these useless gods. She created an army of ferocious demons to battle the worthless gods.
The anti-cosmic gods were spawned from the force of Chaos itself to assist in the battle. In the meantime, Enki made love to his wh*re, and his son Marduk was born. They named the birthplace of Marduk the Temple of Absu, an ultimate blasphemy to Absu himself. Marduk became the leader of the cosmic gods. Kingu, a top-ranking demon of Tiamat, was captured and imprisoned by Marduk and his forces. Marduk, being a power-hungry wh*re, decided to confront Tiamat. He sliced her in half, and from one half he created Heaven (his kingdom), and with the other half, he created the Earth. Marduk needed a creation to rule over to satisfy his thirst for power. He decided to create man. But in order top do that, he needed the blood of a god, and none of the cosmic gods were brave enough to sacrifice themselves. They debated about what to do, and finally decided on a plan: they would kill Kingu.
Marduk mixed Kingu’s red blood with the red clay, and man was born. What Marduk did not realize was that because humans had the blood of Kingu, they would eventually turn against him. And the anti-cosmic gods had one more trick up their sleeve: Satan. Satan was spawned from Chaos to counter the creation of the Earth and man, and he soon became the leader of the anti-cosmic gods.

2. Life on Earth
Man began to evolve on Earth. Civilizations were spawned, and great inventions were made. Marduk took on a new identity: The Demiurge. He presented himself in many different ways to many different cultures. He was known as Marduk by the Sumerians, Ra by the Egyptians, Yahweh by the Israelites, Zeus by the Greeks, etc. His one demand was total compliance and worship. The Demiurge was pleased with his creation, and was pleased that they were following him like sheep.
As time went on, some began to drift away from worshipping the Demiurge. They began to question his existence. These people were labeled as “heretics” and were shunned and persecuted. Some even began to worship Satan, who was there to fight the Demiurge. Satan appeared before many people, and had many names: Typhon, Ahriman, Set, Loki, Samael, etc. The Demiurge made sure that Satan was vilified in every religion, in hope of making humanity fear what was considered to be “evil”. The Demiurge had one goal: to keep his people blind and ignorant so that they will follow him.
Satan has one goal: to avenge the death of Kingu by destroying the Demiurge. Because humans had the blood of Kingu, they would slowly turn against the Demiurge. Satan was there to speed up the process. Satan would awaken their black flames, the very flames that the Demiurge tired to extinguish. The flames that would make men onto gods.
The black flame is the product of Kingu’s blood. It is the “divine spark” that is in man. The Demiurge seeks to extinguish it, to keep men from becoming gods. Satan offers to rekindle the black flame, making man into god. Man is faced with a decision: side with Satan and become a god, or side with the Demiurge and be limited by the constraints of the cosmos. Those that side with the Demiurge in the end times will be destroyed along with the foolish Demiurge.

3. The Laws

The Demiurge made many foolish laws, while Satan only has one law, which is total lawlessness. A Satanist spits at the laws of the Demiurge and the laws of men. He is above such things.

While there are no strict laws a Satanist must follow, there are some guidelines that will lead to a better life on Earth. They are as follows:

1. Do unto others as they do unto you. If a man strikes you on the cheek, destroy him. If a person shows you love, show them love.
2. Mercy is for the weak masses. Show no mercy towards your enemies. May your hatred towards them burn as bright as a thousand suns.
3. Practice indulgence, but not compulsion. Abstinence leads to misery, but so does over-indulgence.
4. The strong must use terror to make themselves heard over the waling of the inferior majority.
5. Make war for the sake of war, for combat separates the sheep from the wolves.
6. Know thyself. Self knowledge is the key to perfection.
7. The weak masses are trapped by morality. The Satanist is beyond such constructs.
8. The Satanist should strive to create a fascist society in which the strong rule over the weak. Communism and Socialism must be fought, as they seek to have everyone wallow in mediocrity. Might is right.
9. The Satanist should be prepared to sacrifice his own life if necessary to hasten the return of the dark gods.
10. Weakness must never be tolerated. Annihilate the weak!
11. In order to have chaos, there first must be order.
12. Honor the anti-cosmic gods
13. If someone is bothering you, ask them to stop. If they persist, annihilate them.
14. Pursue undefiled wisdom, and flee from self-deceit. Be one that will receive the burning rays of gnosis.

4. The Gods

The cosmic gods are worthless abominations that must be destroyed. They disrupted the flow of Chaos and disturbed Tiamat and Absu. The Demiurge (Marduk) created humans to be his slaves. Humans are bound to the shackles of the cosmos for all eternity, damned to a life of servitude. The burning path of Satanism offers freedom for this miserable existence.

The anti-cosmic gods are as follows:

Satan
Molock
Beelzebub
Lucifuge Rofocale
Asmodeus
Astaroth
Belphegor
Adramelech
Baal
Lilith
Naamah

As you can clearly see, the anti-cosmic gods outnumber the cosmic gods. This puts “evil” at an advantage. Satan is the leader of the anti-cosmic gods, and was spawned from the raging chaos itself. The anti-cosmic gods unite to form Azerate, the eleven-headed dragon of Chaos, the one that burns holes in the universe itself so that Chaos may flood through. Azerate and the raging Chaos shall vanquish the useless cosmic gods, and the Ancient Ones (beings that predate time itself) shall rip the Earth in two.

5. The Ancient Ones

The Ancient Ones are primal beings from the first creation. They loathe the filthy cosmic gods. The Ancient Ones weald unrefined power in its’ original and chaotic state, and they are the beginning and the end. They eternally desire to bring the outside into the inside and cause existential decompression, causing catastrophic results for materialization and form. In other words, bringing forth the original chaos. They will destroy the Demiurge’s worthless creation, and spare those that have their black flame ignited. The Ancient Ones desire to unify with Tiamat, and will end this existence. A new dark aeon will be begin, as all returns to primordial nothingness. Chaos will reign supreme. All that dare oppose the Ancient Ones shall be destroyed. There is no stopping them or controlling them.

6. The Satanic Creed

To be a Satanist, one must swear themselves to the anti-cosmic gods, and to their brothers and sisters. The Satanic creed is as follows:

I acknowledge Satan as my king, father, and god. I will swear myself to the anti-cosmic gods.
I believe in the truth that is beyond all forms, and I believe the wisdom that shall destroy all lies.
I realize that there is a battle between Chaos and order, and I realize my part in the battle.
I believe in Chaos, the origin and end of all things, and declare Satan as the outer aspect of my inner might.
I look forward to the dissolution of the cosmic order and the beginning of a new dark aeon.
I believe in power without end, and will sacrifice all upon the bloodstained altar to the dark gods.
I praise the dark gods with my heart and soul, and I await the final battle and the victory that will come.

Hail Tiamat! Hail Satan! Hail Chaos!

7. The Satanic Statements

One violent action speaks louder than one thousand words. Do not say, do. Do what you must to get your point across.
Only the subhuman majority is limited by morality. Morality is a human construct, and is relative, not universal. Do what thou wilt.
Only the inferior submit to social norms and the status quo. Be bold, walk your own path. Satanism is about crossing boundaries and moral limitations.
Your enemies do not deserve mercy. Showing them forgiveness will only lead to them taking advantage of you, and eventually destroying you. Kill them before they kill you. Make yourself a terror to your adversary.
All of the so-called sins lead to true happiness. Do not be constrained by the human construct that is morality. All things human are flawed, and that includes morality.
Annihilate every lie you come across. The most dangerous lie is the sanctified lie: the lie that everyone believes to be the model truth. Do what you must to silence liars and the lies they preach.
There exists one lie that is the absolute worst. A lie that has successfully infiltrated many of the Western governments. This lie is Christianity, and it must be fought in every way, shape and form. Burn the churches and kill the priests. The abomination that is Christianity must be wiped from this Earth.
Love is for those that deserve it, and is not to be wasted on worthless ingrates. Loving your enemy only places you at their mercy.
If given a blow, retaliate a hundred-fold! Make the aggressor sorry that they ever bothered you.
There is no Heaven, and there is no Hell. Earth is the tormented that we are subjected to. If you can survive and Earth and rekindle your black flame, you shall become one with the anti-cosmic gods.
The light of Lucifer shall appear as darkness to the blind.
Your will is your law, and all transgressions must be responded to with sardonic wrath.
Do not kill for freedom while on Earth, but kill for tyranny and control.

8. Magick

Magick is the will to create change in the environment by manipulating the flow
of energy. There is no “white” or “black” magick. Magick is magick, and can be used to hurt or heal. The self-proclaimed “white magicians” are nothing more than self-righteous, hypocritical cretins. They claim that they only use magick for altruistic purposes. One practices magick for self-gain, not to help others and be “good”. It is natural to want to do things for self-gain. Your natural desires should not be ignored.
Many claim that “black” magick is used for harm and for self-gain, while “white” magick is used for unselfish purposes. A true magician is not bound by any limits or morality. His will is his own law.
“White” magicians place themselves in a pentagram during ceremonies to protect themselves from “evil” forces, the very forces they are calling upon for help. To the Satanist, this is hypocritical. It is hypocritical to call on these forces for help, and then to protect yourself from the very powers you have invoked.
A Satanist does not join hands and dance around in a special happy circle. A Satanist does not light different colored candles for different wishes. A Satanist does not call out to the “father, son, and holy spirit”, and a Satanist does not pick a “saint” for personal guidance. Such things are reserved for hypocritical, “fluff”-obsessed Neo-pagans. If you cannot divorce yourself from hypocrisy, you will never be a Satanist. Instead, you will be left to wallow in mediocrity. Magick is a tool of the sinister elite, and is not meant to be used by the masses. Magick is not “fluffy”, “happy” garbage, it is a powerful tool that will give the magician the ability to achieve greatness.

9. Attera Totus Sanctus

Here me now, for I am the great accuser. I accuse Christianity of being a cancer, a curse, blight upon the human race. It is one of the few immortal abominations to exist! Christianity preaches weakness and self-deceit, both of which lead to death! I hereupon deny god and his Christ, and I blaspheme the vile, rotten holy spirit!
Jesus represents failure, weakness, and incompetence. Humanity took a frail, weak man on a stick and turned him into a god, a god that promised to “save” us, but failed. Has Jesus returned? No, he has not. And he never will. If, by some fluke of nature, the King of Jews does return, we shall crucify the bastard again! I curse and defile his disgusting name!
Pazuzu, strike the followers of Yahweh with disease! Hail Pazuzu! Leviathan, swallow them whole! Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam! Azerate. Destroy the accursed cosmic gods for all eternity! Vedal-gal teikals somdus Azerate! Lucifer, pour thy redeeming wrath upon us! Purify us with your holy flames! Oh Infernal Lord, vanquish the lie of Christ once and for all! Lylusay Tateros Volt Sids Lucifer!

10. Pseudo-Satanism

There are many radically different forms of Satanism, most of which are false.
The two most well-known types of Satanism (LaVeyan and Setianism) are also the two most incorrect versions of Satanism.
LaVeyan Satanism is false for many reasons: it’s a humanistic offshoot of Atheism, and is really just Ayn Rand and Nietzsche dressed up in spooky clothing. LaVey’s rituals are simply done for theatrical effect, and do not actually work. The only thing that they may do is resolve conflicts in the magician’s psyche. Nothing more.
LaVey made a few critical errors in his works. He uses Marduk as one of the infernal names, when Marduk is the name of the Demiurge himself! He uses the word “Shemhamforash” in his rituals, which is calling upon the name of god. LaVey was a hypocrite, as he said a Satanist should never call upon the name of god in a Satanic ritual.
In LaVey’s “Invocation to Satan”, he focuses on the forces of darkness rather than Satan himself. He also claims that Lucifer and Satan are separate beings, which is absolutely false.
Setianism is slightly more intelligent than LaVeyan Satanism, but it is not without several errors. Its’ biggest error is that it is trying to make Satan into something harmless and easily accepted, in hopes of becoming a major religion. Satan is not harmless. Satan is the god of the dark light and raging Chaos! Satanism isn’t for the masses, it’s for the elite few that have the will to break through the shackles of the cosmos and receive gnosis. Well, at least Michael Aquino had a better idea of what he was talking about than LaVey.
There are a few men that got Satanism right, three of those men are Michael Ford (author of several books), Jon Nodtveidt (musician), and Frater Nemidal (grandmaster of the Misanthropic Luciferian Order, and author of the Liber Azerate).

11. The End Times
Everything that has a beginning has an end. All will return to it’s primordial nothingness, and Chaos will surge. The Ancient Ones shall rend the Earth into pieces and mercilessly slaughter the followers of Yahweh.
The blind dragon Tanin’iver will be awakened and shall ascend through the gates until his eye opens in the Ajna sphere (also known as Abbadon). When he regains his sight through gnosis of the black light, he unites Lilith (below) with Satan (above), and concentrates the nightside forces and thus manifests Azerate. The cosmic gods will then be destroyed along with the universe, and a new dawn shall begin.

Seems very influenced by Christian Gnostic currents in which the Demiurge (aka Yalbdeboath, the blind idiot god who made this evil/fake universe) has the real YHWH to contend with who tries to show himself to us through clues in the space-time fabric. Christian heresies are way more interesting and thought-provoking to me, Patripassianism is a good one.

This Satanic stuff with a very few exceptions like SODL just looks embarrassing to me and reeks of guys who never get laid and play Dungeons and Dragons.

While I like some of the ideas, it often comes of as a too one-sided view to me. This is bad, that is good and it doesn't really work for me. Apart from that, I have a hard time not to believe that when this cosmos collapses, a new one will arise in some form or another.

Myths and stories are told in all cultures. Very few need man given names and man made stories as literal truth. They tale it as they are: Attempts of man to understand existence with his limited possibilities. Names are different in many cultures, yet certain archetypes and their meaning remain pretty much the same.

It is unfortunate that reality of Anti-Cosmic Satanism appeal may simply walk hand in hand with decay of contemporary society, corruption of christianity and lure of capitalist powers.
Manifests like one above remains utterly nullified unless its writer would really define what exactly is meant. If saying satanist is beyond such constructs as morality (say: differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are right and those that are wrong), why there would be THE LAWS giving moral guidelines about mercy, elitism, love, revenge, etc?

I do not know how exactly Anti-Cosmic Satanism reflects life and actions of those who believe and belong, yet in context of black metal, it appears to be yet another sub-culture for youth to feel brotherhood, elitist illusions and give excuse to misbehavior what could easily manifest through whatever means contemporary semi-pop culture allows: hooligans, bikers, junkies, etc. In my eyes it appears quite foolish to think single cosmic or anti-cosmic god would give rats ass to what humans do in some problematic western suburb. As we don't generally give a fuck what happens in level of one cell organisms. Our death, and the end of reality as we know it, is unevitable. I fail to see how helpful for the cause would be our petty crimes we want to do or our personal glory gained by pop culture related media success?


However, to find the true laws of existence, the seek knowledge and understanding, to clarify the nature of life and death, to behave according those laws. I give my utmost support. It would be certainly anti-christian, and most certainly violent struggle.

If given a blow, retaliate a hundred-fold! Make the aggressor sorry that they ever bothered you.
There is no Heaven, and there is no Hell. Earth is the tormented that we are subjected to. If you can survive and Earth and rekindle your black flame, you shall become one with the anti-cosmic gods.
The light of Lucifer shall appear as darkness to the blind.
Your will is your law, and all transgressions must be responded to with sardonic wrath.
Do not kill for freedom while on Earth, but kill for tyranny and control.

8. Magick

Magick is the will to create change in the environment by manipulating the flow
of energy. There is no “white” or “black” magick. Magick is magick, and can be used to hurt or heal. The self-proclaimed “white magicians” are nothing more than self-righteous, hypocritical cretins. They claim that they only use magick for altruistic purposes. One practices magick for self-gain, not to help others and be “good”. It is natural to want to do things for self-gain. Your natural desires should not be ignored.
Many claim that “black” magick is used for harm and for self-gain, while “white” magick is used for unselfish purposes. A true magician is not bound by any limits or morality. His will is his own law.
“White” magicians place themselves in a pentagram during ceremonies to protect themselves from “evil” forces, the very forces they are calling upon for help. To the Satanist, this is hypocritical. It is hypocritical to call on these forces for help, and then to protect yourself from the very powers you have invoked.
A Satanist does not join hands and dance around in a special happy circle. A Satanist does not light different colored candles for different wishes. A Satanist does not call out to the “father, son, and holy spirit”, and a Satanist does not pick a “saint” for personal guidance. Such things are reserved for hypocritical, “fluff”-obsessed Neo-pagans. If you cannot divorce yourself from hypocrisy, you will never be a Satanist. Instead, you will be left to wallow in mediocrity. Magick is a tool of the sinister elite, and is not meant to be used by the masses. Magick is not “fluffy”, “happy” garbage, it is a powerful tool that will give the magician the ability to achieve greatness.

9. Attera Totus Sanctus

Here me now, for I am the great accuser. I accuse Christianity of being a cancer, a curse, blight upon the human race. It is one of the few immortal abominations to exist! Christianity preaches weakness and self-deceit, both of which lead to death! I hereupon deny god and his Christ, and I blaspheme the vile, rotten holy spirit!
Jesus represents failure, weakness, and incompetence. Humanity took a frail, weak man on a stick and turned him into a god, a god that promised to “save” us, but failed. Has Jesus returned? No, he has not. And he never will. If, by some fluke of nature, the King of Jews does return, we shall crucify the bastard again! I curse and defile his disgusting name!
Pazuzu, strike the followers of Yahweh with disease! Hail Pazuzu! Leviathan, swallow them whole! Tohu Tehom Theli Than Leviathan Tanin'iver Taninsam! Azerate. Destroy the accursed cosmic gods for all eternity! Vedal-gal teikals somdus Azerate! Lucifer, pour thy redeeming wrath upon us! Purify us with your holy flames! Oh Infernal Lord, vanquish the lie of Christ once and for all! Lylusay Tateros Volt Sids Lucifer!

10. Pseudo-Satanism

There are many radically different forms of Satanism, most of which are false.
The two most well-known types of Satanism (LaVeyan and Setianism) are also the two most incorrect versions of Satanism.
LaVeyan Satanism is false for many reasons: it’s a humanistic offshoot of Atheism, and is really just Ayn Rand and Nietzsche dressed up in spooky clothing. LaVey’s rituals are simply done for theatrical effect, and do not actually work. The only thing that they may do is resolve conflicts in the magician’s psyche. Nothing more.
LaVey made a few critical errors in his works. He uses Marduk as one of the infernal names, when Marduk is the name of the Demiurge himself! He uses the word “Shemhamforash” in his rituals, which is calling upon the name of god. LaVey was a hypocrite, as he said a Satanist should never call upon the name of god in a Satanic ritual.
In LaVey’s “Invocation to Satan”, he focuses on the forces of darkness rather than Satan himself. He also claims that Lucifer and Satan are separate beings, which is absolutely false.
Setianism is slightly more intelligent than LaVeyan Satanism, but it is not without several errors. Its’ biggest error is that it is trying to make Satan into something harmless and easily accepted, in hopes of becoming a major religion. Satan is not harmless. Satan is the god of the dark light and raging Chaos! Satanism isn’t for the masses, it’s for the elite few that have the will to break through the shackles of the cosmos and receive gnosis. Well, at least Michael Aquino had a better idea of what he was talking about than LaVey.
There are a few men that got Satanism right, three of those men are Michael Ford (author of several books), Jon Nodtveidt (musician), and Frater Nemidal (grandmaster of the Misanthropic Luciferian Order, and author of the Liber Azerate).

11. The End Times
Everything that has a beginning has an end. All will return to it’s primordial nothingness, and Chaos will surge. The Ancient Ones shall rend the Earth into pieces and mercilessly slaughter the followers of Yahweh.
The blind dragon Tanin’iver will be awakened and shall ascend through the gates until his eye opens in the Ajna sphere (also known as Abbadon). When he regains his sight through gnosis of the black light, he unites Lilith (below) with Satan (above), and concentrates the nightside forces and thus manifests Azerate. The cosmic gods will then be destroyed along with the universe, and a new dawn shall begin.

While I certainly approve of the anti-existence theme, I think ultimately they're confused with this duality notion between chaos and order. The idea of the universe as somehow being the opposite of chaos, or divided from it. Nothing could be further from the truth. I think John Gray put it best when he referred to the universe as a "demi-chaos" (or Ligotti calling existence "chaos at feast"). I'm not interested in looking too deeply into chaos theory or anything else that tries to "explain" things. Working out "the true laws of existence" is a wasted effort. We will only ever know what we are affected by, and we'll only know it very little.

If it is true that the universe is expanding then there's the question of what it is expanding into. In that regard, perhaps, there is a division between matter and whatever else. But that's always going to be an unknown to us. The real delusion of any religion is to believe we can ever "know" everything.

The contempt for existence and the desire to want to be rid of it is great. The religious aspect I can take as symbolism. Satanism, unfortunately, will always be another version of Xtianity. But anti-cosmic satanism does make for a great aesthetic. Fuck the universe.

(I think Thacker's notion of Cosmic Pessimism has more of an accuracy re our understanding of existence, and could also make for a satisfying aesthetic too, if done right).

Regarding the classic aesthetics often used in Black Metal, yes definitely. However:

- the idea of anti-cosmic currents is often explained by using direct references to Buddhism. Nirvana etc. The Eastern teachings of Buddhism, Vamachara (Left-Hand-Path Hinduism) and the likes of which are so obviously similar to many aspects of many chaos-gnostic traditions that it merely seems to be an aesthetical difference in some cases.

- most Gnostic i.e. theistic practices seem to be much more based on "general" teachings so that various mythologies are utilised. Thelema, as one of the most prominent groups, is highly based on Aegyptian mythology, for example.

- all ideas of anti-cosmic Satanism can function fully without the Christian frame work. Take Thursatru, for example. It is basically chaos magick dipped in Germanic mythology. The void is referenced to as Ginnungagap, the Thursian giants are power currents and the nine worlds symbolise various elemental workings.

- the inversion of Christianity mostly seems to be a philosophical thing. How many blasphemous "satanic" BM bands actually practice any kind of spiritual work? Gnostic or "orthodox" BM is a more modern phenomenon, it seems. Of course, there were early bands who also "practiced", but it still seemed to be the minority.

- I think it is essential to keep Anton LaVey fully out of this theme. He simply ripped off "Might is Right" and placed it within an "anti-christian" frame set. This has virtually nothing to do occultism, mostly because LaVey himself actually stated that his beliefs are merely philosophical.

- A dead giveaway for the influence of Judeochristianity is the Qliphotic working which seems very central in chaos gnosticism / satanism. But also here, a few things must be taken into account. First of all, I have also read some sources stating the the idea of two trees of life and death actually precede Judaism - take nordic and Germanic heathenism, for example. Furthermore, the Qabbala has simply been researched much better throughout the ages than for example heathenism (which was extinct) or ultimately right-hand path religions like Islam which offer no possibility to place them within chaos gnostic practices. If you take a look at authors like Kenneth Grant or Thomas Karlsson, it seems as if the Qliphoth is just one possible "map" of the outerworldly chaos which is in no way set on the Christian belief system.

My observation is that Christianity seems much more trivial to Anti-Cosmic Satanism than one would think. Of course, it may look that way due to very prominent aesthetic examples, but this really seems minimal compared to the huge influence of Eastern teachings and various heathen beliefs which are not only very different to Judeo-Christianity, but also predate it.

Within any actual practice of Anti Cosmic Satanism, away from public scrutiny, Xtianity would I suppose play little if any part. But the real stumbling block for Satanism is in the very name itself. I realise that it's more cultural than anything else, but that alone is pretty important. Satan comes from a particular mythological background - if it wasn't for Xtianity hardly anyone would give a shit about Satan (each to their own but personally I get tired of all the fucking inverted crosses and pentagrams in BM). If any group of people identify as "Satanists", they're taking all that baggage with them. It's alright for starters but you wouldn't want to stay there.

The notion of the "tree of knowledge" is interesting, as there are obviously Hebrew roots. But without doubt such symbols are everywhere in humanity. True, the Kabbala (however it's spelled) has had a lot more academic and practical attention placed on it than other traditions. I haven't done the research but it's impossible to imagine such symbolism springing out of the Hebrew imagination ex nihilo. We humans are a predictable lot.

My interests in the aesthetics of Anti Cosmic Satanism is more the Anti Cosmic part than the Satanist part. Personally I find it disappointing that there is this craving towards some kind of ultimate good that still involves consiousness - whether it's "chaos" or whatever it's called. Why not just pray for everything to fucking end and leave it at that? I'm sure there are some within the Anti Cosmic current with such desires. If there are those who are into the notion of Nirvana, "liberation from the wheel", that sounds more like it. Just not in any lifetime. Away from life.

And by all means let's keep LaVey out of it. Anyone who tries to look like Ming The Merciless in real life isn't someone you want to take that seriously.

I think the interesting aspect is the "flirt" with the Christian imagery on the side of the self-proclaimed "Satanists". As you said, many accept to carry the baggage and willfully "play the game". Oh well...

With traditions being so tightly interwoven, it seems very hard to actually make out the originators. As you said, the Sephiroth / Qliphoth idea has been pinpointed to Kabbalistic writings, but where do the influence begin and end? Of course, many people are probably out to remove any kind of Satanism from Judeo-Christian surroundings for various reasons, so I could easily imagine that they bend the facts the way they want them to be, hehe.
