Necronomicon Gate

“…the Necronomicon, a highly secret magical text released in paperback.” – William S. Burroughs.

This symbol, called the Necronomicon gate, or the”gate of Yog-Sohoth,” is a faux sigil usually found on the cover of an edition of the legendary and quite fake “Necronomicon,” a falsified grimoire based on the work of horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft.

For a more detailed look at this fabled work, see: Necronomicon, truth or fiction?

Lovecraft, is to me, on the same level of mystic knowledge as any god, or star people.

I’m amazed that so many people put so much faith into a symbol from a fictional book from fictional stories by a 1920′s horror writer.

It’s the power fiction holds over so many people (including myself, once): if I think it’s true, it’s true.

I’m amazed that so many people put so much faith into a piece of wood which a dude was (or maybe even wasn’t) nailed on.

I’m not religious but even I know your missing the point, It’s not about a piece of wood or a cross, it’s about the faith people have in something more powerful than themselves.

As Gravejoke said, if you think it’s true, then its true, faith doesn’t come from a symbol, it comes from you

All symbols are “fictional”. Why would it be less amazing that people put their faith in any other symbol? A symbol is just a symbol, either way, unless you’re dealing with what the symbol represents to someone.

And when you look at what the Necronomicon and HP Lovecraft’s mythos represents and means to people, you suddenly arrive in a realm of very real things.

That doesn’t mean that Cthulhu is real, but it does mean that the Necronomicon comes from somewhere, within HP Lovecraft. And I hope you’re not saying that HP Lovecraft is a fictional individual.

I’m 16 which is quite young to be reading this type of stuff. But I honestly don’t care and I have an interest of this. I’ve bought the necronomicon and performed 2 rituals of my own which have worked. All you have to do is believe, follow your interests and try to keep a diary of your findings and/or performances. Leave a reply if u want more information.

#1 – I’ve been an Occultist for nearly 30 years, and have used many different techniques and combinations there-in.

#2 – If the Necronomicon is such a fake, care to explain why it has been used so effectively by Occultists all over the world?

#3 – I’m not actually suggestion its history is “authentic” mind you (although admittedly Simon makes a VERY solid argument to exactly this claim in his later books) , merely that regardless of its origins, someone got it right somewhere along the lines.

I believe the abstract quality of the lines of the stars conjoined in this circle of the necronomicon symbolizes the ease in manipulating ones reality and the importance of self-interpretation of spiritual practices. The necronomicon is a personal mythology so as to further the development of the immortally enlightened, as we all know development, even spiritual is infinite in scope.
