THE ART OF COMMUNICATING WITH THE DEAD
Interacting with forces beyond their understanding may have been the trigger for the awakening of the practice of magic by the human being and when observing Death the human being understood that the greatest force to act in the world is the cessation of material life.Perhaps it was withering because of some disease, old age or the sudden inertia of a human body in the soil and its rapid decomposition that gave the human being the view that the human body is changeable, transforming itself from being active, constituted of flesh, blood and organs in inert bones and that the contemplation of these bones, the strong memory of the old being of flesh and when offering food, drink and blood to try to reverse this terrible metamorphosis, something finally happened … shadows with the appearance of the ancient living being, diaphanous beings who tried to communicate with those who were still dressed in flesh …And so since time immemorial, human beings have been communicating with the dead.
In several archaeological studies we can find cultures around the world in which the practice of communicating with the world of the dead was part of daily life. Unlike the cult of the dead and ancestors, which with the advancement of history gained the status of religion and was thus controlled and subdued by the current system, communication with the dead continues to this day as an everyday practice even though it is relegated and persecuted.
NECROMANCY, a word by which we know this practice today and in its Greek root means divination by death or dead, have description in the two main epic poems of Ancient Greece and also in other ancient texts of various cultures and follows the same or similar modus operandi in all ancient cultures, always with the same purposes: to consult the future, to advise on various issues and to clarify the condition of the human being after death.
At a given moment in the history of Necromancy, this interaction with the dead came to be used also as a means of solving common problems and a kind of barter system with the dead was established for the most diverse purposes and as such practice never disappeared from everyday life and thus removing part of the “power” of religions and their followers,Necromancy was demonized and classified as the practice of people of bad character and ignorant people.
Necromancy is perhaps the gateway that most attracts people to the practice of witchcraft and no matter what the purposes that are initially sought, fatally the person who practices Necromancy will eventually flood their horizons, if it is possible to say so in the world of the dead, reaching the excruciating question and the final crossroads:
“IF WE CONTINUE TO EXIST AFTER DEATH AND WE KEEP IN A MISERABLE STATE WHERE WE NEED ENERGY TO SATISFY HUNGER AND THIRST, WILL WE CONTINUE TO BE SLAVES UNTIL WHEN?”
Necromancy is a powerful tool in Black Alchemy, where the practitioner from the contact and relationship with spirits still trapped in illusion, can awaken their own spirit, because the constant and deep relationship with increasingly obscure and ancient spirits goes through experience reveal the deep plots of maya and thus the practitioner will conquer Necrognosis, freeing him from demiurgic death carried out by the azazel archon, revealing the true Death, the portal to the Other Side.
