Paul Lowe joined the Typhonian OTO in the 1980s, assuming the magickal persona Samael 131 ˚˚ He made many contributions to Starfire in the forms of both image and word and, for awhile, co-edited that publication with Mick Staley and Robert Taylor (who became known later as Robert Agusucci). Starfire came to be the official organ of the Typhonian OTO, and widely regarded as the pre-eminent Thelemic publication and surely one of the finest of all occult journals. In time the cell structure of the Typhonian Order emerged with Mick heading the Lam Cell, Robert the Nightside Cell and Samael 131˚˚ heading the Dreaming Cell. As part of his obligations of the Fifth degree he undertook the Astarte Working which was framed over a period of 18 months but in fact formed the foundation for a further 25 years of magical practice as further degrees were undertaken. During this magical practice a new magickal order was encountered and made manifest, the Ordo Templi Solus Noir. At the heart of the Order are the succubi, the qlipphotic queens of prostitution, demons of Kabbalistic lore. These articulate with 3 Temple Pylons (or doorways); 7 Grigori Sentinels (or Watchers, the angels who found the daughters of men desirable and taught forbidden knowledge) and 3 Guardians. His magickal partner in these operations was Namrael. In this context Samael 131 ˚˚ operates as Samael Grigori, vesica of the Solus Noir current and archon of the Order, articulated with the wider world through the persona of Damian Alexander Sinclair. The nature of the magickal work draws upon Crowley, Spare particularly (most especially his sigil work) and Carlos Casteneda - whose work (despite popularity and academic debunking) has had a marked influence upon practicing occultists. Andrew Chumbley is, evidently, a profound inspiration. Curiously though, that influence appears to have commenced some years before the formal joint workings of the Cultus Sabbati and Typhonian OTO and it does seem to have a markedly different flavour to Cultus Sabbati material. This is not the only instance of Andrew Chumbley, the Adept, having influence far beyond the boundaries of the Cultus Sabbati. Indeed, it was Andrew's explicit desire to achieve this. The items offered here earth the Ordo Templi Solus Noir current, bringing it forth into manifestation.

SECTION 2 VISION

Liber Sigillum vel Daath, the Vision (text written 1996) Dreamwork in 13 Octaves including Daathian Intrusions. Illustrated

The Selim, A Tale of Night Walkers. Frontispiece that cunningly employs flashing colours to give the impression of the title hanging in the air. Compiled in 2007 with elements from 1998. Explores sexual emissions and sex magick

Liber Ananta, The Firesnake Working. Written in 1998, revised 2011 concerns states of consciousness. However, it should be noted that this is, in fact, extracted from the full work. It presents, very roughly, about a third of the entire text.

Elemental Entities/realities

Patron Entities

Holy Guardian Angel

Stellar Entities

Stalking of Power

Gateway Technology - A Viewpoint

The introduction informs us this text explores the nature of three Typhonian OTO degrees. Interestingly there is specific mention of taking the Crooked Path and the dates given for the origination of this work just predate the joint Cultus Sabbati - Typhonian OTO workings. The text itself emerged as a result of the firesnake ritual consumate with the Fifthe degree of the OTO Order Ref. DS03 575
