From The Lucid View: Investigations into Occultism, Ufology, and Paranoid Awareness, by Aeolus Kephas:
God made Man in His image, or so anthropomorphic (Judeo-Christian) religion would have us believe. Concerning the Original Archetype, however, it pays
to bear in mind that, in Genesis, the Hebrew word translated as “God” is Elohim, referring to gods, or “builders,” in the plural. If, as some
interpretations of the myth have it, the Elohim made Man in their image out of a kind of divine pride (a desire to extend their kingdom into the world
of matter), this might explain why They considered hubris the ultimate transgression—perhaps the gods wanted to be sure Man’s divine origin would
not go to his head? Yet, at the same time it was forbidden, the original sin (hubris/pride) appears also to have been evolution’s prime directive.
Jehovah tells us in no uncertain terms, “I am that I am!” following which he sets Himself up as our one and only Role Model.
Mythology is all about gods falling from grace and men becoming gods. Lucifer, Set, Prometheus, Loki, the wily old Serpent or the subtlest beast of
the field; all these maligned meddlers are not merely tempters, they are also guides and instructors. Prometheus-Lucifer is the original anti-hero,
the rebel with a cause. He is the man of passion, of irrepressible activity, whose intentions were so good they paved the road to Hell thereafter.
Even according to the most orthodox of sources—the Christian myth—Lucifer is the Morning Star, the brightest and most beautiful of the Angels. He
simply makes a choice to produce his own music. “Better to reign in hell than serve in Heaven.”
In the book of Job, Satan is identified as a Son of God and associated with Cain, who was also condemned to walk the Earth. It is with Cain that the
human race may be said to begin, the very first post-Eden civilization being founded by the exiled son. According to arch-occultist Aleister Crowley,
“Cain was the child of Eve and the serpent, and not of Eve and Adam” (Liber 418). As John Keel notes in Our Haunted Planet, “The mating of
ordinary women with supernatural beings is an integral part of all religious lore.” Of course the Bible has its own “official” version of
events, found in the much-quoted passage from Genesis 6:1-3 ("the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair," etc)
When you get right down to it, beyond all the myths and fables, and from a lucid view, Lucifer is just another word for Man. According to Blavatsky,
Lucifer is the “Astral Light,” the etheric womb of the world on which are retained all the myriad, countless impressions left by the acts,
thoughts and aspirations of Man. Hence he “becomes, with regard to Mankind, simply the effects of the causes produced by men in their sinful
As the Morning Star, Lucifer is the original archetype and source of all energy, the Sun, for what Star heralds the morning if not the Sun?
Traditionally, the morning star is Venus, however, which links Lucifer with Eve, and with the (female) Serpent Kundalini energy of the body, as well
as Gaia, the Earth. The energetic fact—archetypally or mythologically speaking, and regardless of moral doctrines or religious dogma—is that
Lucifer or “Shaitan” (corrupted to Satan, “adversary,” by the Hebrews) is synonymous with the Inner Soul: the Other or Hidden God whose dream
has been the ghost-written history of Man, and whose awakening promises the long-awaited New Aeon. The Lucid View: Investigations into Occultism,
