Book Description

21 Sep 2005
If you had the power within your reach to insure your own immortality, would you risk all to grasp it? Think about it. No longer would you plead for the mercy of others. No longer would you bow to invisible masters. No longer would you struggle for table scraps. You could become master of your own destiny. You could become as God. Drawing on the findings of science, religion, sociology, psychology, philosophy, mythology, history, ancient texts, and metaphysics, The Dark Arts of Immortality explains how to harness and augment the energy of our innate drives. Through personal combat, sexual fantasy, and mystic rituals the death drive (mortido), sex drive (libido), and growth drive (physis) can provide doorways to supra-consciousness. These core altered states of being (fury, ecstasy, and exaltation) grant preternatural physical, mental, and spiritual abilities. The synthesis of these attributes will elevate personal power in this world and allow one to manifest a divine Being in the afterlife.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

In order to proceed with a discussion of immortality and the
important role the Dark Arts play in its attainment, we must first
understand what we mean by immortality. There are various types of
immortality and each has its own unique paradigm. There are thousands of
religions and each one has its particular beliefs concerning the afterlife.
Next, we will need to have an understanding of the universe and Man's
relationship to it. Then when we move into a discussion of the Dark Arts
of Immortality it will be clear how they transcend all religions and
cultures to arrive at the root of Man's need. There is no other method
that provides better scientific and theological balance for achieving
personal immortality as well as providing a more profound existence here
and progress for the species in general. As with many things however it
will not come easy. Many of you will fall by the wayside.

Everything that enters the conscious mind (even things we are not fully
aware of) passes into the subconscious. Events act similarly in that they
occur in the present then pass into the past. Just as current events are a
result of things that have built up in the past, so too are our conscious
thoughts built upon not only our past experiences (we are aware of) but
also the collective memories in our subconscious. Our brain has become a
huge neural construct of belief. Howard Bloom explains part of the
difficulty inherent in any type of rebellion against the ideals and habits
you have held for most of your life in The Lucifer Principle by saying,

"It's easy to see why humans are willing to fight to the death to defend
the memes [self-replicating cultural ideas] that constitute their belief
systems. To allow a faith or ideology to be overthrown would be to abandon
a massive neural fabric into which you've invested an entire life, a
network that cannot easily be replaced, perhaps that cannot be replaced at
all." (138)

Religion, as it has become to be accepted, is a method of control taking
its place alongside of legislation and economics. Currently nearly every
aspect of a person' s life is an exercise in control by some group or
another. Big business controls the standard of living and monopolizes most
peoples waking hours. The government controls freedom of action through
laws, the military, and taxation, all the while giving the illusion of
guaranteeing freedom. The church sets the standard for moral and ethical
practices, which are used to keep men passive and dependent. The church
has wedged itself between Man, his spirit, and his gods by convincing him
that they hold the keys to the invisible world and Man is not strong
enough, nor smart enough, to enter it by himself.

Make no mistake; the church (like government and business) is an
institution of men not of God. Prior to such things as nationalism and
capitalism, religion was a spiritual technology used to help Man deal with
mortality and understand his place in the universe. It was an attempt to
get in touch with the spirit, a part of Man he sensed but of which he was
unsure. It was not a set of laws imposed from the top down but a flowering
of a Man's nature toward the divine. Its primary goal was to point towards
Man's immortality.

Man has spent centuries under this control. It takes an effort of
superhuman will to break free of such restraints. But first it requires
extraordinary awakening to even realize the predicament. You may have to
start small and work your way up to bigger and bigger issues. The easiest
way to begin is by becoming more self-reliant. Stop paying someone else to
fix every problem in your life. It could be as little as replacing a sink
in your bathroom instead of calling a contractor, or as confusing as doing
your own divorce instead of hiring a lawyer (easier than you think). The
bottom line is that the more you do this the more you will learn you don't
need their proof of power. You can do it without them. It will do you
more good than you can possibly imagine so just try it right now and see
for your Self.

3.0 out of 5 stars dark and dank 8 Mar 2007
By Aleea Major - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as I thought there would be some practical exercises included to attain states of altra-consciousness. Most of the book (more than half) consists of the author explaining and justifying why you should use his approach to magic. The last 1/3 is his "how-to" which breaks down to fight as much as you can, have as much sex as you can, and consider flagellating yourself so as to experience rapture.

Some of his psychology is accurate. But for the most part this book was not helpful to me. It is dark. My intuitive reaction was that this is not the path (at least not for me).

That said if you are a "HE-man", into combat, into kinky, have an affiliation to Norse mythology or are just dark yourself, this might be the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT the same old fluffy crap 25 Oct 2005
By Torvald Adolphson - Published on
Mr Shott's work could be considered groundbreaking stuff. Not once in 25+ years of shelf shopping have I seen a book that melds together the concepts and ideals that 'Dark Arts' puts together. Personal transformation is certainly lacking in today's pagan movements. This book doesn't bother assisting you with yet one more convenient label to stick on yourself for the narrow-minded purpose of self-gratification. It tells you to get off your ass, think for yourself, DO for yourself and change yourself to that elevated True state of being that we should all be at and, yet, most of us are not. Buy this book. READ this book and become the person your ancestors would be proud of!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars This Lord needs an editor.... 22 Feb 2007
By Abramelech - Published on
It always amuses me when I pick up a book of this sort, written by some self proclaimed "Lord of the Left Hand Path." Every author in this field goes out of his way to take on this "oogey boogey" imperious tone with the reader. LaVey does it, Webb does it, Flowers does it, and Shott does it as well. There's just one problem. When I read such proclamations from someone claims to be working on their own self-deification, and I find glaring grammatical errors, extremely awkward sentences, and the total abandonment of correct punctuation, it makes me wonder exactly how careful such an individual is with other areas of their life. Yes Ross, grooming is important, but so is the ability to facilitate coherent communication. The Dark Arts of Immortality is an absolutely necessary book for someone traversing the Left Hand Path, and it's full of thought provoking and useful information. It is clear that Shott knows what he is talking about and that he's been on the path for some time. That being said, the overall delivery of the information in the book stinks. One of two things is the case. The diction of the work is deliberately twisted to force the reader to untangle it in order to understand it and/or to force them away from it because of their own lack of intelligence if they don't (which is the answer that I'm sure you will get if someone pins him down on this subject; these guys love to think that their inability to write well is actually an obstacle to weed out the "stupid") or, the work suffers from hasty assembly and a lack of editing. My money is on the second one. So, if you are on the "via sinistrae" buy the book, use it and grow. Just be forewarned that even your high school English teacher would cringe at Shott's butchery of the English language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eternity's doors swing open with this one... 7 Oct 2005
By William L. Webb - Published on
Have you ever picked up a book and after a few minutes realized you had just found something that would CHANGE you forever? And then wondered to yourself, how in the HELL did such a book ever make it into print? but were very glad that it did? The Dark Arts of Immortality is just such a book.

I know what I'm talking about. Having a personal metaphysical library built over 13 years and which exceeds 300 volumes I can proudly say this new work by Ross G. H. Shott is solidly in the best of the best, the top 2%.

It is truly is one of a kind. You're not going to find anything else like it out there. Earnest reader, you need THIS book.

Its pages smolder with findings from the author's hard-won knowledge. And from them you will know that Shott is a daring spiritual seeker who will not be daunted. I have been fortunate enough to personally meet the author, and I can say without any hesitation that he is solid, centered, and real! Unlike many alleged occult experts, Ross G. H. Shott has spent years in deep study, practice, pain, and self-discipline to achieve a soundness of thought and practice which he has assimilated and refined -- and now released to us here in the real world of the 21st century!!!

And whereas most authors find themselves too intimidated to ruthlessly pursue these arts, Shott has not only pursued, but mastered all three! And what lies beyond that? beyond such mastery? Well, The Dark Arts of Immortality shows you. How can its author do that? By his passionate and precise deployment of all three of these arts in the service of the greatest pursuit of human consciousness - the attainment of Immortality!!!

If you've read this far then you already realize the value of this mighty text. But what are you going to DO about it? You're not the type to let this opportunity get past you... Your only real option is to buy this book, put everything else on hold and then dive into it completely! You'll feel the aethers quake as you open the cover...

5.0 out of 5 stars Immortality . . . 13 Oct 2005
By Lori L. - Published on
I don't know anything about the occult and I'm about as mystic as a block of wood. It is my option ... this book is for those who feel the life one holds is a gift to be cherished rather than a right one must wrest from other living things. Not for those who think there is a "free" immortality hand out for everyone after the ride is done. Reading the concepts in this book is easy, practicing them is much harder. With this I wish you luck.
