Gnostic-magical knowledge is the highest knowledge. Ittherefore falls upon all to transfer and apply thistheoretical knowledge into everyday practice.It is the will of the ORDO BAPHOMETIS to pour the gnostic-magical semen on the world and its devotees, so that themystical union with the beginning of the AON BAPHOM can beestablished.The gnostic god AIWASS said: "I am the great god that sitsupon a throne of white marble. Black as the night are my eyes,but brilliant as sun-illuminated snow fields. My horns ofpure obsidian, their trimming in scarlet, in their pointsthe honey of gnosis. My tail points to the snake's nose. Myphallus is ever erect, for my inner snake is forever unitedwith the Lady of Dreams in a kiss. My feet are solid upon theearth, my horns pierce the clouds. I am the god to which thethrone of Ra was given, I am the glorious one, Christ namedby some, by others BAPHOMET, but Satan by the masses".
