The Power of Pre-Conceived Notions from sonofject's blog

Left-hand path ideology is full of them. Religion bases much of its tenets on them. People with the angst of youth, or a weak grasp of philosophy fall into gravely misunderstanding spiritual/occult trappings because of it.

Pre-conceived notions. It's a stigma of sorts--for people that embrace struggle--that people wear like some sort of badge of oppression. They are sacrosanct to religious persecution complexes seen in most Right-hand path ideology. I would chance a guess that people on the satanic path are acutely aware of what these notions mean, and intuit the conflict and self-betterment derived from destroying some of these notions.

"Will traditional satanism ever be fully mainstream?" is a question tossed about and debated amongst the satanic schools of thought. Perhaps it already is, but to what purpose? Even those that seek occult paths for learning and enriching see farther along the path. The occult adept that recognizes how to reach between worlds and move in the shadows--to do the do if you will it--does not embrace a 'mainstream' philosophy. It's a selfish, epicurean life path, after all. Not solipsism salad with nihilistic wine dressing.

A great majority of misunderstandings originate in presuppositions. Recognizing and exposing them for what they are is often the most difficult task of cultivating understanding.

What preconceived notions do you notice in particular in the LHP?

There's quite a few, but let's start with the labels that distinguish the paths of study. The notion of RHP being a path of light while the LHP is a dark path (the mutual exclusivity is a preconceived notion). The notion of LHP being an evil path as opposed to a 'righteous' one (I find no moral imperative on the LHP). Just to name a couple.There's quite a few, but let's start with the labels that distinguish the paths of study.

I agree that it is difficult to cultivate an understanding of these notions when they are exposed for what they are. They're sacrosanct to ideas of belief and religious/spiritual faith.

Interesting way to turn my sentence around. :). Okay, the examples you gave are obvious. What presuppositions might we have to contend with once an individual hurdles those stereotypes based in ignorance? If preconceived notions have power how is it best to disarm them?Interesting way to turn my sentence around. :). Okay, the examples you gave are obvious.

You point out the absurdity or fallacy in them. I like to do it in a humorous and often cynical way.
