More on that later. In the Medieval era, a sigil was a symbol associated with a particular angel or demon, which could be used to ritually summon the relevant being. So we now have a basic recipe for how to create a Memphis Rap Sigil. This is the first time we hear of 8 specific tracks. Ten Wanted Men - 4 Corners Pt. Children of the Corn - Deep in the Woods. Maniac - Hellraiser. Lil Ramsey - Magnolia a. Down With Magnolia feat. Tommy Wright. Tinimaine - Last Man Standing.
Psycho - Welcome To Tha Graveyard. A wise fella on YouTube named "Romantis anon" claims the following:. Occasionally, supposed original copies of the tapes pop-up on Ebay. If you buy one, good luck! Based on the available info, it seems that original copies of some or all of these tapes are what constitutes the "Memphis Rap Sigil":. So what happens if one person collected original versions of all 8?
Is it like some diabolical version of Dragon Ball Z? A huge evil Dragon pops out of your 40 and grants you any wish you want? Or can the power only be harnessed by the original creator of the sigil?
From earlier this year:. Speaking of the Triple 6 Mafia - they are easily the most popular and integral part of the Memphis rap scene, Hell United - The Third Sigil Of Destruction (Cassette) none of their music is involved with the sigils. J uicy J remains an incredibly popular and successful figure to this day. Dead Rabbit Radioone of my favorite podcasts, has one hell of a take on the concept. So what do you think? Or was there something truly sinister going on in Memphis?
Were a few of these rappers actually deeply in-tune with the infinite powers of chaos magick? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics? The art was handled by our vocalist Stenvik Mostrom. There is definitely a link between the art and the lyrical themes which are primarily isolation, depression, etc. It was all written on covid lockdown when I think a lot of people were failing to see light at the end of the tunnel.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment? I would very much like people to listen to and purchase our music. Like everyone else, we're dying to play live. Secondly, to unite the Higher Will, that which aspires to the Neshamah, with the Lower Will, that of the conscious mind or Ruach, to form the "True Will".
Hell United - The Third Sigil Of Destruction (Cassette) interpret this as meaning consciously striving with my mundane Will towards my Higher Genius. Thirdly, one should separate the undesirable parts of the personality from the self, so that the "Evil Persona," Jung's idea of "the Shadow", is made subject to the Nephesh the sense-body and automatic consciousness .
However, it becomes more complicated than this. In a "Flying Roll" Mathers expands on this idea, saying that the Neshamah should bring the Ruach into contact with the Divine Will or Chiah attributed to Chokmahand thereafter with the Divine Genius or Yechidah attributed to Kether.
How then to achieve all this? My instinct had been for some time to practice a kind of astral working, in which I perform the Middle Pillar Ritual, and then contemplate the various parts of my soul being identified with parts of my astral body, my microcosmic Tree of Life as it were, and then fervently willing that they move, act and react in the manner described above.
For, I reasoned, if I could formulate the exact process happening to me astrally, and if I Willed fervently enough, this would create a "current" which would eventually bring the desired effect to me in actuality.
The main problem with this though is that it is quite a fairly complicated procedure - and one in which I would have to exercise a great degree of control over my astral body in order to see it through properly.
My principal method of working in the astral is through Lucid Dreaming, although I sometimes perform other methods of astral projection as well. One day I thought: could the Sigilisation method help me in this as well? I therefore wrote out a full description of the requirements of the Adeptus Minor, as I perceived them, taking into consideration both the official instructions in the "Golden Dawn", and in Mathers' Flying Roll.
I then eliminated the repeating letters. I made it easier for myself by using the "Find and Replace" feature in Word Hell United - The Third Sigil Of Destruction (Cassette), this time, instead of conducting a full-blown ritual, I visualised the sigil and meditated upon it. There is an unfortunate tendency in some quarters to regard meditation as allowing ones mind to wander around a given subject.
The Golden Dawn itself says "Think Hell United - The Third Sigil Of Destruction (Cassette) of the subject for meditation in a general way - then choose out one thought or image and follow that to its conclusion.
However, the practice of Yoga takes an entirely different definition of meditation - that of taking one thought and holding it fixedly. The mind, far from wandering, becomes completely still, until eventually it remains still of its own accord.
Given that Spare himself counselled the conscious forgetting of the purpose of the sigil, it appeared to me that the yogic style of concentration was the correct method of meditating on the sigil. For, by deliberately causing my mind to be still, I was excluding all extraneous thoughts - including thoughts about what the sigil was meant to represent.
Therefore, visualising the Sigil at my "third-eye", I meditated by holding the image there for half an hour, whilst studiously ignoring all thoughts that attempted to intrude. Finally, I ceased meditating and went to bed. It so happened that that very night I had a particularly lucid dream, in which I did indeed perform the Middle Pillar Ritual, and contemplate the various processes entailed by my interpretation of the Adeptus Minor's obligation. It was in effect an advanced and extended form of the process which I have described in The Vision of the Holy Guardian Angel .
Malkuth and Yesod to a region below my feet, the region of the Qlippoth. The whole experience was incredibly powerful. I felt an overpowering sense of energy, not unlike the way Kundalini is described in yogic literature. I was transported to a realm where all form disappeared, and everything dissolved into light, including my own consciousness.
It was in effect an infinitely peaceful oblivion, devoid of images and memories. Given that it was singularly lacking in features by which to describe it, I can not really say much more about it, save that I awoke the next morning still feeling exhilarated from the experiences of the night before. I was satisfied by my use of the sigil. It convinced me that Sigils can indeed be used in Theurgic workings. It would also appear that they are also good for incubating Lucid Dreams on a given topic.
Tuesday, September the 11 th at about 2pm British Summer Time I was at my desk in my place of work when a colleague told me that two planes had crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York. I went upstairs to look at the only TV set in the building.
I found that practically all the other members of staff, having had the same impulse, were gathering in the room with me and there tried to take in the full enormity of the worst act of terrorism to have occurred within living memory.
It was impossible not to sense the impressions prevalent at the time: the pain of the victims in those planes, and in the World Trade Centre; the sense of injury of the American people generally, and of the people of New York specifically; the sense that whoever had done this was effectively declaring war on America, balanced with the certitude that those responsible had signed their own death warrants in the light of the inevitable American retribution. What could I do?
Here I was, some two thousand miles away from the events in question, yet I felt that I should at least do something. I also knew that if this was indeed a war on America, it was likely that "the Enemy" - whoever they were - would attack again sometime soon, probably within the next few hours. From a purely tactical point of view they deserve to lose in the current conflict. Therefore, driven by an overwhelming urge to do something for the American people, I got the idea to perform a ritual.
I knew I had to work quickly: the incident of the Healing Ritual was still fresh in my mind. I therefore proceeded to execute a Sigil, as I had previously. The Sigilized desire was to prevent all forms of terrorism from taking place in the future.
I am afraid I cannot remember the exact wording of the desire now; nor the form of the Sigil which I composed. Although given that Spare recommended the Sigil be consciously forgotten, I suppose this is a good thing.
I carried out the ceremony that very evening at midnight BST. From a scientific point of view this is obviously the most controversial magical project I have undertaken, given that it is all too painfully obviously whether this Sigil will be a success or not.
To argue in defence of the validity of the experiment, I would say that acts of terrorism by Al-Qaeda per se have not succeeded since I performed the ceremony. I choose my words carefully: there was the incident of the shoe-bomber, who was thwarted before he could do anything; and there was also the Florida teenager who crashed his plane into the side of a building, but without taking anyone's life but his own.
The world is certainly not yet free from terrorism generally. Paramilitaries are still committing murders in Northern Ireland, and there have been a number of very violent acts against Israeli citizens in the West Bank. If my Sigil set in motion any kind of magical impulse, it seems to be taking a painfully long time to gather appreciable momentum.
On the other hand, I am well aware that there were many others who, on September 11 thhad the same feelings as me. It seemed that just about everyone in the occult community at the time was using their powers to help in the aftermath of the atrocities. Not only that, but all the Christian churches world-wide were united in prayer for the same reason. If, therefore, my Sigil is in anyway successful, I may have to content myself with the fact that it was not my doing alone: but that I had merely added my will to the Collective Will of millions.
The manner of use of these sigils was very unlike the manner described by Spare himself. I doubt he would have approved of his methods of magic being co-opted by a Ritual Magician of the type he described.
A Sigil formed according to the A O Spare method is a non-verbal form of communication. Whereas normally in a magic ritual there comes a Negotiumwhere the intent of the ceremony is articulated and communicated to the forces conjured, the Sigil replaces the need for spoken words at this juncture.
Nowadays, thanks to the work of Roger Sperry we know that the left-hemisphere of the brain usually works in words, and the right-hemisphere usually works in images. It would appear that the Sigil method therefore replaces left-brain with right-brain activity at a key point in the magical operation. Eshelman, James E.
