Comments

KHIAZMOS: A BOOK WITHOUT PAGES is one of many magical texts composed as an outer emanation of the work of the Cultus Sabbati. Begun in 1993, KHIAZMOS was initially conceived as a poetic contemplation reflecting the arcana of magical polarities and paradoxes, and upon the emerging witchcraft philosophy of Crooked Path Sorcery hat came to encompass and remains at the heart of the work of the Cultus Sabbati as a whole. Refined over the years by insights born of the Circle of the Magical Art, its final sections were completed in 1999. The grimoire articulates the paradoxical arcanum of Opposition an essential dynamic force of Sabbatic Witchcraft which animates the Art of Magic itself, through aphoristic formulae. Like the mystical formats of the riddle, parable, and koan, the book utilizes strategies of arcane, recursive exposition to express transcendent truths about magic, the spirit world, the stance of the sorcerer, and the Sabbat of the Witches. The living book, as conceived in the Vision of the Scribe, possessed the power to transcend its material corpus, and simultaneously write and unwrite itself as it was read, creating the titular 'absence' of pages. The title is derived from the Greek "chiasmus", indicating a literary, or rhetorical, device in which concepts are expressed in a forward or standard form and then in reverse order. Each aphorism may thus be viewed as an absence and a presence.
