The Formulae of Zos vel Thanatos

By Austin Osman Spare

First Formula: Of the White Sabbathas first told me by a Witch AR !"#$T: Actually there is neither a Blac% nor a White Sabbath: the ethical criterion of all acts is &hether they are anti'social or so motivated( Where t&o or more of a %ind of e)ual maturity and inclination enact for consummation* then* if harm they do it is only to themselves&hich + doubtand far less harmful than the practices of those &ho mutilate or deny their bodies in the name of a culture or a reli,ion( The latter are invariably prophets or propa,ators of sterility* &hereas the one out&ard tenet of Witchcraft is silence to -unli%e others-( The Sabbath is an inverse'reversion for self'seduction* an undoin, for a divertive conation( Se. is used as the techni)ue and medium of a ma,ical act( There is not only erotic satisfaction/ the sensualist is made detached and controlled until final sublimation/ his &hole trainin, is submissive and obedient until* by cold amoral passion* he can transmute control and divert him' or herself &here desired( The Witch so en,a,ed is old* ,rotes)ue* &orldly and libidinously learned and is se.ually attractive as a corpse/ yet she becomes the entire vehicle of consummation( This is necessary to transmute the personal aesthetic culture( 0erversion is used only to overcome moral pre1udices or conformity/ the mind and desire must become amoral* focused and made entirely acceptive so that the life'force is free of inhibitions prior to the control( Thus* the Sabbath becomes a deliberate se.'or,y for the purpose of materiali2ation: the reat Reality of 3as if3 4&ishful thin%in,5( Se. is fully e.ploited: he &ho in1ures none* himself does not in1ure( Finally: a culturally accepted criterion has destroyed more affective affinity than any other belief/ but he who transmutes the ugly into a new aesthetic has something beyond fear. For the ethical pra,matist + can assert that this formula has never harmed me/ on the contrary* by improved health and self'control it has made me tolerant* understandin, and compassionate( +t inspires and promises more than probability as possible* and is the only thin, that has made reality ma,ical and the ma,ical* reality( 0leasure is in us and around us6 no& + bec%on and it cometh unto me( FOR"!7A: This is al&ays secret* communal and periodic/ an enforced consummation for almost unlimited &ish'fulfillment by len,thy voluntary abstinence* repression and sacrifice until release by mass se.ual saturation* for one purpose: the e.teriori2ation of a &ish by a ,reat savin, and a total spendin,(

The hypereroticism induced by this ,rand'scale hysteria or saturnalia has an essentially sado' masochistic basis( 0revious to the ceremony each celebrant has his or her allotted part* althou,h it usually ends promiscuously and chaotically( The initiates are trained sin,ly in their o&n parts and in the response e.pected of them( They play a passive role* for the promise of untold ecstasy( The Witches take the active part throughout: thus the symbolic levitation by besom'handle( There is a meetin,'place and an elaborate ritual &hich is an e.tensive hypnotic to over'ride all inhibitions( Thus* smell* hearin, and vision are seduced by incense and mantra 4incantation and the ritual'ceremony5* &hile taste and touch are enhanced by the stimuli of &ine and oral acts( After complete se.ual satiation by oral* anal* or urethral means* there appears an e.teriori2ed hallucination of the predetermined &ish &hich is ma,ical in its reality( $o one can say precisely &hether certain thin,s happen or not* althou,h each person may have very different and e)ually vivid e.periences( Some form of levitation seems common to all( "y o&n e.perience of many Sabbaths is that there is consummate e.teriori2ation and that subse)uent memories are of reality( All e.cessively sadistic acts are usually symboli2ed by ,enuine Witches* but &hat simulation there is is common to most erotic ri,hts( The &hole ceremony is based mainly on inverted orthodo. reli,ious services( 8O9TR+$# A$8 9R#8O 3Fornicatus benedictus: Almi,hty Ashmodeus* e.istent of 9haos* ominous by thy name* thy %in,dom come throu,h me on earth( 7ead me into all temptations of my flesh so + may trespass ,reatly into thy &ays by my desires: for thou art all se.'see%in, unity* thou mi,hty ,enitalia of creation that %no&eth no satiation,rant thou my &ish* for thou art all po&er* ecstasy and actuality( Amen:3 A small talisman arabes)ue of the ma1or erotic 2ones is passed around and %issed by all( Then follo&s a short perverse communion* then a symposium &ith su,,estive e.hibitionism* libidinous stories and abreaction of se.ual fantasiesdevelopin, into the real thin,( S;$O0S+S OF T<# SABBAT< T<#OR; OF FOR"!7A: 8ifferentiation is the stimulus of recreation* hence perversions and contra'practices are used to that end( 9eremony and Ritual are the matrices of form and order* the thesis bein, that by the act of 3as if3 the &ish is fleshed &hen ma,ically char,ed( The act of e.uviations is by transference to the po&ers of elemental automata as dele,ated by the obsessive mind( Thus reality may obtain* and for a &hile serve its o&n purpose( The ecstatic moment is used as the fecund instant of &ish' endo&ment/ for at that period of reality* the Will* 8esire* and Belief are ali,ned and in unison( Faith is a form of compulsory autohypnosis &hich may build up and enter belief( The ,reat believers have no need of faithand &e are all convinced by the flesh of thin,s( T<# AFF+R"AT+O$ 9R##8 + believe: 3+ become the potentialities &here + made effort6 the funambulatory &ay bet&een ecstasies: The acceptance of all thin,s* in enterin, all doors and the by'passin,: !nto myself only the la& + ma%ethe ,ood and evil + affirm: The relatability of all thin,s to e,o* the
