    I do not value "individuality", so that one is lost on me.

    I need to agree with everything from the man's pen or mouth in order to use the word to define how I approach matters?

    How utterly irritating. Then until I find a better label or make my own, this will have to do.

    I am aware that "individuality" is the centerpiece of the W/LHP. I just to not value it. I would rather just go on existing in my way and if people call me an "individual" or "unique", that is on them. I do go out trying to become an "Individual".

    Maybe you're a closet Satanist, or perhaps you don't have the balls to call yourself one? ;)

    Society would prefer that we each accept the majority order without question. Satanism opposes this “behavior without question” and urges the individual to choose the behaviors that they would integrate into their own, consciously. We jolt our own programming, making the first choice that makes us truly aware of the many choices and freedoms we truly have. If society says we should obey, Satanism says we should resist. When society says “this is the way it is-accept it.” Satan asks “why?” Being a Satanist is the ultimate refusal to thoughtlessly conform.

    I do not resist for the sake of resisting. I walk my own way and no one tells me otherwise, lest I see value in obeying them or they are my deity. My deity, I do obey without question.

    As for being a Satanist, I can not see how I could be called such, especially with what passes for Satanists today. Have you even looked at the refuse in the CoS or the TST?

    Baphomet

    The Baphomet symbolise the Union of Opposite, The Union of Light and Darkness of The Male and Female Principle, the Baphomet symbolise the Primal nature of men(Animalistic) and the Higher Aspect of the Self The Torch on the Head of the Goats, symbolise the Enlightment that come when the Primal Self is Mastered and used to Master our Life. The three Staff you can see near represent the Ida, the Pigala and the Shushuma, the Three main Nadis of the Energitic Body and symbolise the Mastering of the Life Force present in Ourself and Everywhere in Creation. the Wings symbolise the Freedom of the Soul, the Will to Ascend Higher and Higher, there color Black symbolise also the Need to fly down into the Abyss to stay Balanced(Light and Darkness Equilibrated). The Hand pointing upward and the one Downward Symbolise the Hermetic Principle, As above so Below. Baphomet is standing on a Shpere, symbolising the Mastering of the World

    Baphomet is a LaVeyan marketing logo. Pay no attention to it.

    Um, Baphomet is, if nothing more, a hermetic symbol of Levi's far before a symbol of Laveyan marketing.

    Actually, I read that Baphomet was the goddess of Hell. I don't believe in such being, but the Sigil of Baphomet is a Satanic symbol. It was used by the Church of Satan, and I think it may have been copyrighted. It was an important element of their ritualism. Even as a Theistic Satanist, I see a lot of value in its use in magick. However, I don't want to flaunt such symbol because it's associated with the Church of Satan.

    If I were to flaunt Satanism via necklace, tattoo, shirt, or whatever, I'd prefer a simple inverted pentacle, or maybe the Goat's Head in my signature.

    Thanks. I have now realized why what I said was stupid.

    The Goat's Head? Yes, I know. It is supposed to mock the crucifixion of Jesus, and it's a rip-off of the Sigil of Baphomet, but I see greater meaning in it. I see it as representing how Satan is held down currently, and how Christianity prevails. It represents the current state of the world. I don't like the way Satan is metaphorically held down, but it looks as if Satan is trying to break away when you look at the symbol.

    I meant to ask who drew that version, but like your interpretation. This one is indeed more "in your face" than the usual Baphomet drawings you see.

    Baphomet is indeed a top goddess in the ONA.

    I don't know, but I think it's very artful and it appeals to me visually for some reason. I found it while reading about Satanic symbols...
