Article II - A Peer Into The Void
Warning: Author is inexperienced with writing articles, please forgive bad formatting or article flow!
Hello all, Mekhan here. Today I want to share with you a glimpse into my current understanding/belief of the Void! Be mindful as this is just going to be a VERY basic explanation of the idea, for I have not the energy at the moment to write a full detailed article about the Void and it’s nuances (that will come later)!
What is the Void?
It is my belief that the void is, at its core, a dimension of pure creative and destructive energies that forms the Origin point of all of reality.
Do I choose to worship the Void itself? Or do I follow a deity/daemon/spirit?
In a weird way it’s both. I believe the Void to be the origin of all, even divine entities such as gods. To simplify the answer though, I worship the Void and I recognize and respect the power and authority off all its creations including deities.
Principles of the Void
While I do worship the Void, I do not worship it as an entity but rather as three divine characteristics of reality. In order to properly worship these aspects I personified them even though they are not entities in and of themselves. The three principles are these:
- Sithis - Father and Principle of Destruction
- Aethis - Mother and Principle of Creation
- The Twilight Weave - Principle of Reality/Fate/All that exists between Sithis and Aethis.
Sithis is the name I gave to the Principle of Destruction. Sithis embodies darkness, death, and a return to the Void. For all things created must be destroyed and returned to its origins.
Aethis is the name given to the Principle of Creation. She embodies light, life, and the progeny of the Void. She is the waking universe staring back at itself, She is all things living and yet to be born.
The Twilight Weave?
The name given to represent all of reality. The Weave embodies fate, the created, and the ones on the path to destruction. It is all we see, hear, feel, smell, and taste. It is every person, item, and idea. It is the balancing act of the two great natural forces, a bridge between that which will be and that which was.
In very basic understandings the Void is the origins and the ends of all things that have existed, exist now, and will exist in the future. It is the power that drives all. I am sorry for not going into further detail now, but there is a lot more to discuss about the Void itself and that is saved for a better day. I just wanted to put the basis of my beliefs out there so that fellow occultists can learn these new ideas and use them to better their own ideas. This path is NOT the only one and is superior in NO way over other paths. Just because Voidcraft may not hold the answers you seek does not mean that you can’t learn from it and build your own beliefs.
