Amookos traces itself back to fishermen. Founders of magical orders are often from humble backgrounds. The founder of Neo-Platonism was a dockworker in the 7th century.
There are 3 stages of development of Tantra:
1) Early: during the 6th/7th century: Kula-clan or family (not blood relations-you choose your family). They held extremist, in your face, rituals in graveyards involving sex orgies and scarlet women, dalkinis, who spend their time killing babies and drinking blood ‘Kula fluid’. The hero must eat wild meat. He is bribed by the dalkinis offering their sexual fluids. There was a unique recipe for this potion for each clan. Only then can the hero get magical powers.
2) Kaula is a watered down version, more mellow and discreet. Secret societies meet at new or full moon in forests. This can be done internally also (via visualisation).
3) The final internal mentalistic approach to magical tradition was very mainstream. The inventors of Kundalini yoga ‘tantra’. All Hindu practice is Tantric. Eight is a significant number in Hindu tradition.
There is a connection between Egypt and Tantrism, the East/west tradition, the Typhonian approach to Thelema. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was originally called The society of Eight. Egyptian tradition improvised chaos magick. The Greek orphic ideas sound Indian.
Puja is an offerings ritual. Sex and death are linked in Tantra along with the theme of cannibalism, of wild meat, of human flesh. Crowley talked of Jews eating babies, a blood libel, the ultimate meal you shouldn’t eat. The cake of light has human flesh within it (blood and semen).
“If you want to succeed you must suck seed”.
The primary mode of transference of knowledge is by fluid transfer, semen, blood. If you want to seduce someone, you must do it through food, feeding by hand. (For example, in India, trainers of elephants feed them a ball of food in the same shape as an embryo.)
