Just WHO is S. Ben Qayin?
S. Ben Qayin...
I have researched and practiced various forms of Magic throughout my lengthy course of esoteric study, working in various areas of Ceremonial Magic, though found early on that Magic was a thread that was woven through all things, ad so was drawn to more personalized Chaos Magic from a young age.
I hold the belief that Magic is not "Magical", that it just not "just happen", nor is it "miraculous". I see it as a scientific system based on a process that we have yet to fully understand scientifically. This is based on my concept that people do not fully understand the base structure of their reality of which they are currently residing, and that they have yet to understand all the rules of the "Matrix" of Consensual Reality. Therefore they do not entirely understand or utilize their their personal energy and influence within it. I view Magic as a manipulation of personal energy to restructure or influence the Consensual Reality Matrix" to conform to the Will and Intent of the Magician. As with all energy, I believe Magic can be harnessed and directed, Spirits and Entities can be contacted, and change can be made manifest within the personal "grid" of the Magician. I can help others unlock this hidden potential.
As the once Head of the Inner Order of the Voltec , I have had years of training in shifting my perception of reality, and thus am able to successfully manipulate the "structure". The Order of the Voltec were an offshoot of the Temple of Set, which of course is an offshoot from LaVey's Church of Satan.
Chaos Magic or "Fringe Magic", as I like to refer to it, is not new; it's simply a category or term created to encompass Scientific Magic or Magic that deals with dimensions, non-human intelligence and other work that questions the basis of reality and how to manipulate it. This can be classified as "experimental magic", if you will, teetering on the Abyss of Creation. Of course Fringe Magic does encompass such literary works from authors and Magicians who have ventured forth into the "empty spaces" such as H. P Lovecraft, Carlos Castanenda, Pete Carroll, Frank G. Ripel, Michael Bertiaux, Kenneth Grant and others who have been to the edge of creation and reality and came back to write about it. They have masterfully transformed into words, experiences and concepts that are seemingly indescribable to those who have not walked the "Spaces-In-Between" themselves, and who have not known the "Twilight of Being and Reality".
