If anyone would like to learn about these or any other religions, or "Satanist" as in "Anti" or "Reversals" or "Inversions" of religions like Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, or others, please let me know.
I can present the mainstream views, the common views as espoused by mainstream followers, and my versions of things for the benefit of people. May of these can fall under the concept of "Negative Theologies" or "Dark Religions". Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want the discussions through email rather than on the forum.
To be able to master the dark side of things, one finds then there is no place of escape from the truth, into the light or into the dark, the Sustainer remains ever present in both when they are understood in a certain way.
Often the dark siders and the light siders like to create a dichotomy and division and dualism, making war with each other and pointing fingers about how each is different. My objective in talking about these things is to unite what was severed by utilizing certain terminology and giving it meanings that might be more useful and effective to people.
My user image here has 9 points in their hairstyle. The eyes are red, the heavens are red, the moon is reflecting brightly, there is stuff coming out of the eyes, the tongue is forked and a small fang is revealed on the side, the eyebrows can be seen as a "27" and threshing and harvesting devices as well as the symbols of the Kings of Egypt that they crossed their chest with in symbolism. Standing on a material ground that is green near my character where there is light but darkness and symbols of death all around it, as well as the cross.
Not made in vain haha:
The 9 points growing from the skull and upon the mind/head are the 9 fruits of the holy spirit, among other things. Those are always on my mind and grow from my thinking or head.
The red eyes represent "seeing blood", the blood representing what is under the surface, or insight behind the appearance or material aspects of things.
The red sky represents the whole heavens being full of insight.
The moon reflecting brightly can represent how the light/knowledge of God reflects brightly over everything, giving light in the darkness.
The darkness all around and symbols of death are that we live by Death and the unseen and unknown and progress also by destruction (or else we can't change or move or improve).
It also represents how the immediate is lit and life and is only a small circle of our experience which we see.
The green can represent resting on paradise, that is, to be grounded in serenity through right thinking and right action, thus wherever you are in the darkness you can be present with paradise, as it says "The kingdom of heaven" in your heart.
The stuff coming out of the eyes is dark insight from what is seen, this can potentially be fed on by people or at least seen by them, it is meant to be the product and result of seeing insight. I would've colored it red as well, but it is true that it appears black to people when they see it.
The black clothes with a hood represent the dark exterior, while underneath my character is wearing white. The hood represents my concealment ability but here I have it exposed to reveal the 9 pointed crown that grows from my mind.
Also there is a small house in the back, it is totally black and in the darkness, which can represent our home is the darkness, the place from which we come, and the place to which we return, that being a reference to God and our origin and return.
The hair covers it as well as the moon, which can mean that the points lead to it as well, leading both to the light reflected on the surface of things, and the darkness it speaks of.
The hair also makes the moon appear broken, which can be thought of as breaking through the reflective surfaces and letting the blood pour out making the sky red.
The hair at the bottom end where it connects to the face makes the shape of a bat's head and ears, representing a few things related to the bat, not only the vampirism of "sucking blood" connected to the vampire bat, and its "flying in the darkness" and "residing in the depths", but also the ears representing "hearing supersonic sounds which might not be audible to other creatures" "hearing echoes and reflective sounds that bounce off surfaces" as being a representation of hearing the subtle words of God. The bat has also been associated with being "two things" that is, a rat and a flying creature like a bird. It is also a hunter, seeking the bounty of God. Because of its dual nature, there have been stories of the bat going to the mammals and to the birds and speaking to both of them, sometimes in these stories the bat is not accepted by either, in others the bat may be accepted by both as a uniting between those who fly and those who walk on the Earth, which can be taken as a reference to the more mystically inclined and the more materially inclined or the more flighty in their imagination or conceptual (often associated with the "air" and "flights") and that which is more grounded. The bat hangs upside down when it rests and meditates, and this can be a symbol about how one can find peace in seeing things upside down.
The two points of the ears are pointed above, while the forked tongue is pointed downwards. The ears are receptive to what comes from "above" while the tongue speaks out towards what is "below". The forked tongue representing double meanings, the two opposing ways of seeing things being united in one tongue or language. The tongue and the word "tongue" both represent speaking and languages, and the forked tongue is often associated by people with deception, but in this case it is meant to represent not only the potential for deception but more importantly the uniting of opposites in one "tongue" or linguistic framework.
Fangs can represent a carnivorous or predatory nature, that of a hunting animal, and the vampire fangs represent "blood sucking" as in deriving insight from whatever is hunted down, bitten into, and devoured or "killed", leading it to the "graves" represented behind, and "Death" a reference to our origin of non-being before we were made to Be.
The snake whips out their tongue to test the weather, and similarly speaking the opposites is also for the purpose of testing the environment and situation. It can thus represent testing, while also looking like a "T" and a "Y", for "testing" and asking "why" or questioning things from both angles to get a complete answer regarding the "weather".
The cross appears in the light. The cross I use as a symbol to represent a few things, including the 4 points and the 4 definitions. The 4 points are God, God's Action, which are One (that is to say God is Action, God is One with the Action, which in the Bible is the Word/Command is God). The horizontal bar represents on the left side creation and creation's action, the bar representing the impression of time, as seen through a subject and its action giving the impression of chronological progress, where as God is immediate and active, beyond and above the line of "time" and acting immediately "through" it, as the symbol can be seen to say. It is in the light here because of being seen as part of our immediate circumstances, but there is no time in the darkness, it is just an immediate perception. There are 3 graves which can represent the 3 forms of Death we experience. They are also mentioned in the mainstream Qur'an. That we did not exist "before", that while we live we constantly "die", in the sense of changing, and the death after that where we cease to exist, a grave on the way back home. That being a negative reference to the Trimurti of Hinduism of "Creation" "Sustaining" and "Destruction". They can also represent the 3 gunas which are: tamas (darkness), rajas (activity), and sattva (beingness). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threefold_death
The grave in the darkness, closest to the home, is the one of Shiva, Mahakala, the Destroyer, El Shaddai, and the trident symbol carried by Shiva also is often associated with the 3 gunas. The reason it is closest to home because the total annihilation of information or the material is closest to the essential existence or purity of God without information created by God, so the grave representing the "latter death" can be presented there, the grave of the Sustainer, Vishnu which pervades everywhere can be the one nearest to the light or most apparent and immediate and experienced most often and most closely, and the death before creation being placed between the darkness and the light.
Also the bat image appearing as an illusion created by the edge of the hair on my head gives an illusion of the whole face being the image of a bat, and bats are often considered frightening or ugly, squeeking creatures to shew away as well as hypocrites in stories where their double nature is taken as hypocrisy, so there is a faint impression of that in my forward presentation if one looses focus, but when they look carefully there really is no such thing and it is just an optical illusion created by the exterior hairline tip, "the most superficial sort of thing" that gives the illusion of a bat or a hypocrite.
Thank you so much! I have lots more where that came from! If you're ever curious, feel free to ask for any more details in anything! The general idea is to try to utilize everything for our benefit, so that even ideas people may shun can be converted for our uses or as reminders for good in us or personal empowerment.
Aviel: Immanuel, Thank You very much for the work you do. Thank you for your insight, IM SINCERELY THANKFUL! There are people to whom your work is very important, and I can and will raise my hand for being one of them.
Jul 31, 2017 10:29:55 GMT
Immanuel: You are welcome, hansolo. It is for your sake that I am doing it primarily, but I am also a bit curious myself regarding the underlying lore. Persistent research and critical thinking has led to a great breakthrough.

nullandvoid: Wondering what a future with only non-dualistic people would be like?
Jan 28, 2018 14:53:12 GMT
Immanuel: Symbiotic existence, like a permanent telepathic coexistence. This is why humans are placed to learn to coexist on Earth on a very basic level and even with marriages, in order to be ready for a greater union by developing from there.
Feb 2, 2018 21:32:19 GMT
Immanuel: Our challenge here is Homo sapiens' self-preservation and other instinctive drives/motivations, which makes people think in "dualistic" ways.
Feb 2, 2018 21:34:12 GMT
hftwo: Immanuel do you believe that You will be able to do "Godly" things during this Immanuel-life-time? Because I do think if Jesus said that you will. e able to do these things and even greater! But logically thinking to get Godlike powers...

hftwo: ... one needs to become perfect /totally complete as a being. I do not count on my self, because it seems like the sex commandment is something that I usually break.
Oct 4, 2018 10:49:35 GMT
hftwo: How can I count myself as a perfect being if I cannot control the reproduction urges of the body?
Oct 4, 2018 10:50:10 GMT
hftwo: But at the same time, I do not want to be a human any longer, I do not want to be weak any longer.

cerulean: learning to live each day as the last i.e giving our best at each moment, not allowing for sloppiness in thinking and doing, not even for a second. Not allowing the postponing of what should be done
Oct 10, 2018 18:51:29 GMT
cerulean: We should learn to do that, and then all other things will be easier. By adopting a way of being instead of just focusing on abolishing those apparent wrong acts such as masturbation.
Oct 10, 2018 18:55:42 GMT
Immanuel: I might seem to prescribe impossible goals, but I also say that we do reside in a creature which is an animal and you will not be rid of its functionality without killing it and the creature as an animal has needs which are inevitable.

Immanuel: What the "Ten Commandments" counteract is the enslaving effects of the body. Furthermore, I am still not convinced about what the seventh command says as it probably says "unnecessary sex". Jesus gave a recommendation of not even looking upon a woman.
Nov 4, 2018 21:05:37 GMT
Immanuel: Jesus' word of not even looking upon a woman (or man) suits that of no unnecessary sex. It is about that sexual trigger in the mind which is spoke of. Pay attention to that translators usually add "other" within parentheses, meaning it is about ANY woman.
Nov 4, 2018 21:11:06 GMT
Immanuel: "but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28 NASB
Nov 4, 2018 21:17:55 GMT
cerulean: Right, so one should probably adopt an entire way of living, instead of focusing on one thing, because many other things can lead to that one thing you are trying to keep away from.
Nov 5, 2018 12:44:38 GMT
Immanuel: Yes, this is about a way of living rather than a dumb set of rules. People have incorrectly referred to the so-called 'Ten Commandments' as laws to uphold for the sake of worship, but this is wrong. They are guidelines in order to maintain a conscious lif
Nov 5, 2018 18:38:31 GMT
Immanuel: Unfortunately the first lines of the Commandments were distorted so badly it looks like they sanction religious worship. While they seem to promote relinquishing the mind, the truth is they that say the straight opposite.

hftwo: Just "Be" is that simple
