Will the deeper meaning on the Necronomicon tradition be lost, as the Gate-Walking Community grows?

I would to welcome everyone here to the Papers In The Attic blog page, where we discuss pertinent information about the Simon Necronomicon. Recently, we were able to improve the appearance of our page. You will note that some of the pages appear directly under the site’s title, and to the left of the most recent post is a section entitled “Recent Posts,” which lists that last seven articles posted. Below this section is a continuation of prior articles in our “Pages” category. The reader can also see the responses to many of our articles underneath the “Comments” section. I hope this information is useful in guiding our subscribers through our website in view of our recent changes.  

We always enjoy reading the concerns and views of our readers and subscribers. Over the years I have built a relationship with some people which began when interacting with a regular subscriber who posted quite a few comments. Some of these have even been invited to join the staff here at Papers In The Attic as writers. We always look forward to varying insights concerning the Necronomicon Tradition from the public and those interested in the Necronomicon Tradition. I have noticed that we have received quite a few comments in our recent article entitled “Redefining The Necronomicon Tradition,” which can be read in its entirety by clicking on the following link:


I thought it would be good to answer some of the questions that were posed in this article, which I will list and answer in interview format.

1)      Alex: Is there a Gate-Walking community in the UK?

Warlock Asylum: Yes there is. If you are interested in contacting someone in your area, I would suggest that you make a post on the Order Of Necronomicon’s Forum, which can be accessed by clicking on the following link: http://www.simonnecronomicon.net/forum/index.php You should address your inquiry to Adept Edunpanna. I must say that the Gate-Walking Community works like the Wise Ones of Old. Its primary focus is not on membership numbers, but the growth of the Initiate. It is for this reason that many Gate-Walkers journey upon a solitaire path. Basically, you are guided by a mentor, in learning how to Walk the Gates and working with the Watcher. Once the Initiate gains an understanding of how the rites are performed, they can work on their own, and are mentored by their own Watcher who communicates to them via dreams. Since older Initiates have amassed quite a bit of knowledge and experience on this path, they are often times consulted by newer Initiates for advice, but it is NOT a path where one follows some Guru. Or what have you. Additionally, some mentors teach differently than others, but the terms of how the Initiation Process works in one in the same. I may instruct my students differently than some others who are mentored in the system because I have a perspective based on experiences of working with the Book of Calling and the Urilia Text. Some mentors do not work with the Urilia Text at all. Yet even if an Initiate is instructed by someone who does Not work with the Urilia Text, that same Initiate will still gain a knowledge of such, if it is part of his/her path, as they are still their Watcher’s child.

2)      Satan’s Avenger: Correct me if I am wrong, but nowhere, in the testimony of the “Mad” Arab is the word “Necronomicon” used, but rather the Arab refers to it as ‘the book of The Black Earth’. The word Necronomicon was born from the minds of H.P.Lovecraft and John Dee…So what really is ‘The Black Earth’?

Warlock Asylum: That’s a very interesting question. The term “Necronomicon” doesn’t appear anywhere in the text for a reason that was very important during the time of the book’s publication. The “book of Black Earth” is another way of saying “alchemy.” Wikipedia presents the following information about the origin of the term alchemy:

“The word alchemy derives from the Old Frenchalquimie, which is from the Medieval Latinalchimia, from the Arabical-kimia (الكيمياء), in turn from the Persiankimia (Elixir). This term itself is derived from the Ancient Greekchemeia (χημεία)[1] with the addition of the Arabic definite articleal- (الـ‎).[2] The ancient Greek word was originally derived in its turn from “Chemia” (Χημία),[3] a version of the Egyptian name for Egypt, which was itself based on the Ancient Egyptian word kēme (hieroglyphic Khmi, black earth, as opposed to desert sand).[2] The word could have originally derived from chumeia (χυμεία) meaning “mixture” and referring to pharmaceutical chemistry.[4] With the later rise of alchemy in Alexandria, the word may have derived from Χημία, and thus became spelled as χημεία, and the original meaning forgotten.[5] The etymology is still open, and recent research indicates that the Egyptian derivation may be valid.[6]

Based on the information cited above, which can be confirmed in other articles concerning the etymology of the term alchemy, the book of Black Earth is simply another way of saying the book of Alchemy. We will continue now into the subject of the Qliphoth.

3)      Serapis: Perhaps my perception of what should be called Qliphotic is a bit biased, but as I walk (or crawl..) the serpentine path, through the dark and the light, in the balance of the two united as one, this is where my perspective comes from.

Warlock Asylum: I think we are a t a misunderstanding as to how the Gate-Walking Community uses the term qliphoth. It is not what is described by the Judaic-Christo tradition as something dark or evil, but the primordial rites that precede the Judaic era. The reader can find more information about this in an article entitle The Qliphotic Tree of Transformation, which can be found at this link:


The following is an excerpt from the article:

 “In the medieval era, old ideas from Babylon gained new strength. The Qliphoth, or Kelippot(קליפות the primeval “husks” of impurity), was blamed for all the evil in the world. Qliphoth are the evil twin of the Sephiroth. The tree of Qliphoth is usually called the kabbalistic Tree of Death, and sometimes the Qliphoth are called the Deathangels, or Angels of Death. The Qliphoth are found in the old Babylonian incantations, a fact used as evidence in favor of the antiquity of most of the cabalistic material.”

The above passage informs us that the Kabbalah does indeed derive from Ancient Mesopotamian sources and was demonized since “foreign deities” could not fit into the Jewish pantheon. Another interesting perspective that we must also consider is that the term Qliphoth, meaning shell, was not a term to describe something “evil” in its inception. It is also interesting to note that a “shell” was symbolic of a pregnant woman.Birth in Babylonia and in the Bible: Its Mediterranean Setting by Marten Stol, on page 52 it states:

“The combination sign for “shell” is identical: a body with water in it. The Sumerian word is iskilla; Akkadian isqillatu. The Babylonians saw this shell as a symbol of the pregnant woman…The Greeks and Romans had similar associations; the cowrie shell was named “Cyprian” after the goddess Venus of Cyprus,…Clearly this shell reminded ancient man of the womb.”

When I read the above words, I am reminded of the following:

“The method of the NECRONOMICON concerns deep, primeval forces that seem to pre-exist the normal archetypal images of the tarot trumps and the Golden Dawn telesmatic figures. These are forces that developed outside the Judeo-Christian mainstream, and were worshipped and summoned long before the creation of the Qabala as we know it today. Hence, the ineffectiveness of the Golden Dawn banishing procedures against them. They are not necessarily demonic or qliphotic in the sense that these terms are commonly understood in the West, they just simply represent power sources largely untapped and thus far ignored by twentieth-century, mainstream consciousness.”

We will continue now with another point brought up by one of our regular readers that can be found in the article entitled Serapis Gives Us His Advice On the Necronomicon Tradition” found at the following link:


4)      Satan’s Avenger: One of the unique things discussed in some detail within the Simon Necronomicon and no other Occult Book I can find which discusses this law, is the subject of – THE COVENANT ! …This is a major sacred secret, one revealed only in this publication.

Warlock Asylum: Actually the definition of what The Covenant is can be found in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction, under the subheading, The Devil, we read:

“Since “the gods are forgetful”, buy treading on their celestial spheres we are reminding them of their ancient obligations to us, their created ones. For, as it is said in one of man’s most ancient of Covenants, the Emerald Table, “As Above, So Below”. Man’s power to alter the nature of his environment must develop simultaneously with his ability to master his inner environment, his own mind his psyche, soul, spirit.”

The Emerald Table cited above is the Covenant the is spoken about in other parts of the Book of Black Earth, namely the Emerald Tablets. I suggest that the reader review how similar The Testimony of the Mad Arab is to the Emerald Tablets Of Thoth The Atlantean, which can be read free online at the following link:


5)      Satan’s Avenger: As for the gate walking – How many go to the trouble of making their own robes and crown of ANU etc as per the Book’s instructions ? Very few I would think!…The Gate walker picture shown above is of a Naked woman, who is not useing a suitable sword for summoning the Watcher, nor even the right ritual garb and symbolism. …As a result, I don’t believe the picture is of a genuine gate walker who knows what they are doing. It’s more in line with a skyclad wiccan, using a totally different system of magick. The correct garb has to be made in the finest silk. WHY- because such is an astral insulator and holds a charge around the body like an electrical capacitor. The crown of Anu has to be made in Copper to show Authority, as does the dagger of Inanna give protection and allow one to cast the circle.

Warlock Asylum: Actually, she is performing the rites exactly as is mentioned by the Mad Arab. note what is says in the Book of Calling says:

“As for the worship of the Gods, it is after the fashion of your country, but the Priests of Old were naked in their rites.”

The garb used in the Gate-Walking rituals is symbolic of certain mental and emotional states that the Priest, or Priestess, should possess before entering the ritual. In all shamanistic religions, once the fire is conjured the Calling of a particular energy is done in the heart the words give the heart’s emotions its shape. These emotions of the heart are symbolized by certain attire appearing in the Necronomicon. However, those who approach the working with a pure heart need NOT the attire mentioned in the tome, or as the Mad Arab mentioned:

“…but the Priests of Old were naked in their rites.”

– Stay Blessed

For what is new
Came from that which is old
And what is old
Shall replace that which is new
And once again the Ancient Ones
Shall rule upon the face of the Earth!

    Firstly I apologize if this post is in the wrong place. It should be under the Emerald Tablets (E.T.)section. I have just finished reading the E.T Link you sent me and it was quite intersting. Some useful material in it for sure including details on a hidden space craft near the sphinx.

    But besides all that, I do have a few points I will touch on here. Firstly I am not a supporter of the Elder gods – in fact a have a rather big axe to grind with these guys – long before I knew of the Necronomicon’s existance.

    My comments are shown below >

    Some Criticisms About – The Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

    It says in – The Emerald Tablets of Thoth > The Key of Magick – Tablet VI
    The BROTHERS OF DARKNESS seek for their brothers those who travelled the pathway of LIGHT.
    For well know they that those who have travelled far towards the Sun in their pathway of LIGHT have great and yet greater power to bind with darkness the children of LIGHT.
    List ye, O man, to he who comes to you.
    But weigh in the balance if his words be of LIGHT. For many there are who walk in DARK BRIGHTNESS and yet are not the children of LIGHT.
    Easy it is to follow their pathway,
    easy to follow the path that they lead.
    But yet O man, heed ye my warning:
    Light comes only to him who strives.
    Hard is the pathway that leads to the WISDOM, hard is the pathway that leads to the LIGHT.
    Many shall ye find, the stones in your pathway: many the mountains to climb toward the LIGHT.
    Yet know ye, O man, to him that o’ercometh, free will he be of the pathway of Light.
    For ye know, O man, in the END light must conquer and darkness and night be banished from Light.
    Listen, O man, and heed ye this wisdom;
    even as darkness, so is the LIGHT.
    When darkness is banished and all Veils are rended, out there shall flash from the darkness, the LIGHT.
    Even as exist among men the DARK BROTHERS, so there exists the BROTHERS OF LIGHT. Antagonists they of the BROTHERS OF DARKNESS, seeking to free men from the night.
    Powers have they, mighty and potent.
    Knowing the LAW, the planets obey.
    Work they ever in harmony and order,
    freeing the man-soul from its bondage of night.
    Secret and hidden, walk they also.
    Known not are they to the children of men.
    Ever have THEY fought the DARK BROTHERS,
    conquered and conquering time without end. Yet always LIGHT shall in the end be master, driving away the darkness of night.

    And from Tablet VII – The Seven Lords >

    Open thy SOUL, O man, to the Cosmic
    and let it flow in as one with thy SOUL.
    LIGHT is eternal and darkness is fleeting.
    In all space, there is only ONE wisdom.
    Through seeming decided, it is ONE in the ONE.
    All that exists comes forth from the LIGHT, and the LIGHT comes forth from the ALL.
    Everything created is based upon ORDER:
    LAW rules the space where the INFINITE dwells.
    Forth from equilibrium came the great cycles, moving in harmony toward Infinity’s end.

    From Tablet XIV – Supplementary >

    I attained, as it were, to the God of all Gods, the Spirit-Sun, the Sovereign of the Sun spheres. There is One, Even the First, who hath no beginning,
    who hath no end; who hath made all things, who govern all, who is good,
    who is just, who illumines,who sustains.

    Some criticisms of the Emerald Tablets >

    The above quotes are classic Elder God propaganda; they being so cock sure of themselves as to having a monopoly on the source of all knowledge.

    They should remember who bought them into existence ! It was not they who discovered life and the secrets of Time and Space, but it was the Old Ones who gave bore them into existence.

    If these Elder gods are truly so masterfully supreme and knowledgeable, as Thoth ( Nebo ) claims – they would have found a solution to their lack of wholeness and their dire need for a feeding program.

    The very fact these clowns are of the radiant Light and ever trying to be above all as the essence of Fire, means that they require a fuel supply, or food source, to sustain their depleting radiation as Light Beings – a process the Dark forces have long Mastered with cold luminescent light as used by the Great Old Ones.

    Also too; cold and darkness prolongs Life, not Sthe olar Light which radiates heat and needs fuel to burn. DNA deteriorates in sunlight and becomes brittle creating ageing. The very fact these gods are FORGETFUL and constantly need to be made to REMEMBER, is a symptom of Alzheimer’s disorder, also a sign of their lack of wholeness giving birth to their mental insanity. Siuch mental insanity andf forgetfulness is because the Elder gods are highly inbred and a direct violation of the law of the Zos who created Tiamat. In other words the Elder god’s – being man’s creator – are found WANTING big time !

    What these Creator gods seem to forget is that LIGHT COMES FROM DARKNESS and not the other way around, just as Order comes from Chaos, making Chaos the dominant power over everything. Order by the law of evolution and entropy degrades into Chaos, as does light burn out when its fuel supply is consummed fadeing into darkness.

    To acheive the reverse which the Elder gods want, is quite unannatural and requires great energy to rise up from the ashes; where descent into Chaos is in harmony with the law of “gravity” and quite effortless – making fall the natural process.

    Darkness existed long before the light was founded.
    Genesis chapter one says – “Darkness was on the face of the watery deep” – not light as it was not yet created. The earth came into being long before the Sun in the Biblical Genesis.

    Sorry to be a wet blanket here, but – The Emerald Tablets are as much about the great Covenant law, as Satan would be deemed an agent of truth by Christians.

    In other words – the Tablets as interesting as they are, are about the Elder god’s divine laws pertaining to the light and not the original Covenant arrangement made between the Old Ones and the Elder Lords.

    Think about It !

    Why would the Elder god, Nebo ( Thoth ) share with man something which is forbidden for man to know about ? – that being details on the original Covenant. Why would the Elder gods betray each other by sharing secret knowledge to men about becoming One with the light ?

    Such a deceptive exercise would rob the Elder gods of their food supply ( men kept in a constant state of sadness , misery and war, hence desiring salvation ) effectively starving them, by giving us awareness to become like them and escape enslavement. Such and exercise would be admitting defeat regarding the First War, on the part of the Elder gods and in doing so, by default, release the Old Ones from their symbolic bondage of slavery and in so doing, allow them to become the final Masters.

    It also would mean Kingu’s death and spilt blood on the ARRA was for nothing.

    Also from Tablet VIII called the Key of Mystery it says >

    But, know ye, the Masters ( Elder gods ) were mighty in magic, able to lift the Veil from the face of the serpent ( Tiamat ), able to send him back to his place.
    Came they to man and taught him the secret, the WORD that only a man can pronounce.
    Swift then they lifted the Veil from the serpent and cast him forth from the place among men.
    Yet, beware, the serpent still liveth
    in a place that is open at times to the world.
    Unseen they walk among thee in places where the rites have been said.
    Again as time passes onward shall they take the semblance of men.

    This above passage denies the fact that skilled worshipers of the Ancient Ones, being the Masters of Chaos, can also control and bind them.

    It also seems that if we are to take Thoth seriously in that the Ancient Ones will enter the world through man, that means we are the gate itself. Yet the Simon Necronomicon says ‘man is the KEY to open the gate’ – the gates being outside or external to man’s world. A few discrepancies here I say.

    Again from same Tablet VIII it says >

    Called may they be by the master who knows the white or the black,

    Sorry – but the above comment by Thoth is again a crock of crap.

    Interested in others feedback!
