You hold in your hands the material result of many years’ hard craft.
This Book contains some of the secrets of Life itself; or rather, the
occult deity of Life on Earth, Baphomet. Horned, vital, beautiful, awe
full, our aeons old Chaos Magick idol finds a name from the Knights’
Templar, then goes incognito through the Enlightenment (when
flourished those great natural philosophers beloved of science
historians), before emerging via devil worship and witchcraft into
this era of Deep Ecology.

Darwin could have used a picture of Baphomet as his frontispiece, to
demonstrate the one flesh from which all species originate. Contacting
this Great Spirit, the anima mundi, allows access to a new way of
ordering the world, with fresh visions of how and why we could Live.
Here the authors weave strands from their lives into a rich tapestry
of images, which might give you a pointer or two towards your own
self-realisation, whilst amusing, entertaining, and instructing along
the way.

Revolution, evolution, leap beyond the apocalypse to the Now!

“An excellent read, consisting as it does of such a wealth ofinformation, research, anecdote, experience and vision” – Peter J. Carroll

“It is a very fine book, in which your two voices form a harmonious whole, and which manages to interweave cosmology, history, science, autobiography and drugs in a very effective way which probably nobody else could have managed.” – Prof. Ronald Hutton

“I have finished the book and found nothing I would object to. It is most excellent. The so-called Occult world is full of really bad books that are a sad waste of trees. Yours shines amongst this dross.” – Ian Read

“Altered state of consciousness just reading it…”- Alistair Livingston

“A fascinating, poetic revisioning of the concept of deity for the 21st century”
– Levannah Morgan
