The Fifth of the Scrolls of Ain – the Duality of Humanity
The Fifth of the Scrolls of Ain – The Duality of Humanity by Rev. Frederick Nagash 1. The dual nature of all things lies in knowing the opposites of ones self. The Yin and Yang, the equal yet opposing force, the male and female, all of which are dualities. We all can rest assured in knowing that everything has an exact opposite. Fire and water, black and white all of which forms a certain balance between chaos and order, life and death. 2. The “self” is a mere shadow in form compared to the true “selves” that we are. Our duality lies in
our nature. Our very core of being is our duality. The great strength and iron will of the magickian is even of dual nature. We deny no facet of our selves and are therefore, open to learn life's mysteries. 3. Human nature can be broken down into four sections: Social, Instinctual, Taught and Carnal. The “social” nature of man is his identifying marker of where he lives. A person from the city would react different socially to a cow giving birth than someone from the country. 4. The “instinctual” nature of man is that which is not taught but “willed” and known without knowing. All four facets of mans nature can be forged into one duality. The social and taught can be combined to form what I call artificial behavior (S+T=AB). The instinctual and carnal can be combined to form infinite possibilities (I+C=IP). 5. The duality can now be combined to form infinite, metamorphic possibility. Being able to define and change these possibilities in our nature makes it easy for us to adapt and become anything at any time (EXTREMELY USEFUL IN MagicK). 6. Metamorphosis is the highest magickal tool any “would be” magickian could ever utilize, as through metamorphosis one can use and know all magick for they can become the magick!
