Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to Papers in the Attic blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to add you experience and insight by posting a comment. Stay blessed.
Wow! I received an email from WordPress this morning notifying me of the Papers in the Attic fifth anniversary date. Time does have a mind of its own. In some ways, it seems like the blog page has been around for longer than five years. We have covered so much information and so much has occurred that was inspired by this blog page. Here is a review of some of the magic we at Papers In The Attic have shared. This is just only a summary of some of the things we have shared over the years. There is about 5,ooo pages of information on this page at present. You can find may other things by reviewing our Archives section in the lower right section of this page.
1. In the beginning: i thought it would be a good idea to keep an online journal as an Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition, nothing complex. That’s when I met Mr. Dan Harms.
2. Not to long after the blog page started, Dan Harms commented on a few of my posts. I decided that it may be good to talk about the Necronomicon Tradition for the first time. Soon after, an online debate occurred. Harms gave me homework that helped improve my study ethic and understanding of ancient Mesopotamia.
Dan and I debated online over the next few months, which catch the attention of many in the occult world. The Letter to Dan Harms post started it all. Interestingly, our daily views started increasing during this time. We reached an average of one hundred views a day.
Simon Magus, one of our first staff writers for Papers in the Attic held it down during the times that Harms and I debated with articles like, A Women’s Role in the Simon Necronomicon Tradition, helped establish that there are many practitioners of the Simon Necronomicon who are not just teenagers, but working professionals.
3. In November of 2008, Warlock Asylum conducted an Interview With Historian Denny Sargent. This open up a new chapter in the Necronomicon Tradition’s history. It should be noted that this wasn’t the first interview, but a very effective one. The first interview conducted may have been with a member of the Jackson family, popular for their contributions to the music industry.
4. In early 2009, Warlock Asylum becomes the first magician to give a thorough examination and explanation of the famed Urilia text. Prior to this time very few “Necronomicon mysteries” were understood or talked about in public. An example of can been seen in a post entitled Keys To The Ancient Ones Part 12: Ishnigarrab.
5. In mid-2009 The Qliphotic Tree of Transformation Part: Preserving the Necronomicon Tradition is cited in a Wikipedia article that examines the qliphoth. The article is still Papers in the Attic most widely read post.
6. Halloween 2009, Papers in the Attic blog page publishes Warlock Asylum’s Interview with Dan Harms! The article received the most views for a single article in one day. The once warring rivals, Dan Harms and Warlock Asylum, settle their differences and become good friends. Demonstrating to the occult community that the true magic is found in love for fellow man.
7. Another interesting development that occurred in August of 2009, was the appointment of David Stolowitz to the Papers in the Attic administration team. Mr. Stolowitz, also known as Oprimystic, would often frequent the page and offer insightful comments. Stolowitz still remains one of the top-contributing authors of this blog page. At the close of 2009 Papers in the Attic blog page has increased its readership, growing from an average 100 views to 220 views daily.
8. Papers in the Attic announces the release of The Atlantean Necronomicon by Warlock Asylum in January 2010.
9. Not too long after the Necronomicon debates ended another moment of friction occurred between Cult of Cthulhu leader Venger Santanis and Initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition. Warlock Asylum’s Interview With Cult of Cthulhu Founder Venger Satanis was the first attempt at patching things up, a process that would take some time. It began with a misunderstanding that occurred on the Cult of Cthulhu forum. In June of 2010, Jason King came out with a video entitled Drawn and Quartered, which is available at the following link:
10. About a month after the Cult of Cthulhu incident, Warlock Asylum writes about some of his experiences and understanding of the Shinto path. One example of this can be seen in an article Amaterasu Ohkami.
11. Towards the end of 2010, Jason Sorrell and T.C. Downey, former members of The Cthulhu Cult, link up with Warlock Asylum and establish a truce. Jason Sorrell makes a few contributions to the blog page, starting with the article Wiccan Ways.
12. Moving into 2011, the blog page starts the year off with a bang.

Nightcaller, after experiencing some setbacks, published an article entitled Larisa, which is a work explaining some of his obstacles that he went through in the recent months prior, an excellent work.

Since our beginning, we have received of 366,153 views and 187 people have subscribed to the blog page. Our staff would like to thank you for your support. Please, if possible, do not forget to make donation to the work. The next five-year schedule will be even more intense. Here are a few adjustments hat will occur over the next five years:
1. In the year 2013, we will register the Asaru culture as a fraternity and its neighboring Necronomicon tradition as a religion.
2. The “word of mouth” style of teaching will cease to exist. The freedoms of each individual Initiate will still remain, but to ensure an accurate knowledge of the Mesopotamian culture and paradigm, a series of certified courses will be offered to those wishing to pursue this path. Once the student has completed a set of courses, he/she can move on to more advanced work. Those who are already Initiated members are not required to go through these courses but may do so to sharpen their own skills. Such courses as Fire God and Watcher certification will be offered, where the Initiate has to remember the incantation for each as well as, have a working knowledge of the historical and scientific relationships with the terms and prayers used.
3. An interactive website that will feature a new forum format, and detailed information, including f.a.q., will be available in the fall of 2013.
4. Emphasis on “astral meetings” will be stressed more and steps as to how the Initiate can move forward in joining the ranks of the DinGir will be further revealed.
5. More information and coursework pertaining to the Oracle of Enheduanna will appear over the next two years, as well as, a one-year astrological course, available this summer.
6. Certification and additional paperwork validating the member’s ethniticity as an Asaru will also be made available.
7. Papers in the Attic administrative team will work on editing some of our past articles to secure the accuracy of the information presented. This process will also include reviweing and checking for grammatical errors.
8. Courses in Akkadian and Sumerian will be offered by the year’s end. certification courses on the Asaru language and exercises will also be made available.
9. Every year Initiates can attend an in-person convention where members can interact physically and discuss insights, shared experience, and etc.
10. A monthly newsletter will be made available along with the “Necronomicon” martial arts style.
We would like to thank everyone for their continued support once again. We will need many of the Initiates who have passed the Gates to take the lead. Please email me at email@example.com to let me know what areas would you be able to specialize in. Additionally if you are able to, please make a donation.
Regardless of what outsiders may say about our Tradition, it is a historical process that many people today are once again calling upon the names of Dingir Enki, Enlil, and Anu. A form of alchemy that was thought to be extinct has return and in that, an ancient formula for assisting man in his next transition is now available o all. But for how long?
