Baphomet - Scapegoat and golden Child

Satanas de novo construere

What is scapegoating and what would happen to a golden Child which was abused as a scapegoat?

"The golden child is committed to misunderstanding the scapegoat child, and in believing the smear campaign against them; the one full of lies."

"The narcissist lives and breathes to influence the golden child’s perception of the scapegoat. Through daily put-downs of the scapegoat, exaggerations, and half-truths about the scapegoat, the narcissist will gradually erode the golden child’s perception of their scapegoated sibling. At times mind control sessions will occur on an hourly basis (not daily, hourly)."

"The golden child is usually the most impacted when the scapegoat leaves. Golden Children often “get away with murder,” projecting their own wrongdoing on the Scapegoat who is then punished for what the Golden Child did. The golden child may vent their rage about the abuse they are enduring at the hands of their narcissistic parent on the Scapegoat, abusing the Scapegoat in exactly the same ways. The scapegoat is the punching bag for the Golden Child. When the scapegoat child leaves the family, the Golden child now has to keep all the troubles within themselves, until a new scapegoat is found."

The golden Child possibly will degraded and turn to a scapegoat

In the history of science, Laplace's demon was a notable published articulation of causal determinism on a scientific basis by Pierre-Simon Laplace in 1814. According to determinism, if someone (the demon) knows the precise location and momentum of every atom in the universe, their past and future values for any given time are entailed; they can be calculated from the laws of classical mechanics.

A desire to confirm or refute Laplace's demon played a vital motivating role in the subsequent development of statistical thermodynamics, the first of several repudiations developed by later generations of physicists to the assumption of causal determinacy upon which Laplace's demon is erected.

The connection between Freemasonry and goats is a long-standing one and its origins are lost in the mists of time. Undoubtedly, anti-Masons would say that it is proof positive that Masons worship the devil in the form of Baphomet, as the goat skull forms an inverted pentacle…

Baphomet is a deity that the Knights Templar were accused of worshipping, and that subsequently was incorporated into occult and mystical traditions. The name Baphomet appeared in trial transcripts for the Inquisition of the Knights Templar starting in 1307. It first came into popular English usage in the 19th century during debate and speculation on the reasons for the suppression of the Templars.

Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with the "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Éliphas Lévi, which contains binary elements representing the "symbolization of the equilibrium of opposites" (e.g. half-human and half-animal, male and female, good and evil, etc.).

In a midrash (Genesis Rabbah 19) Samael, the lord of the satans, was a mighty prince of angels in heaven. Satan came into the world with woman, that is, with Eve (Midrash Yalkut, Genesis 1:23), so that he was created and is not eternal. Like all celestial beings, he flies through the air (Genesis Rabbah 19), and can assume any form, as of a bird (Talmud, Sanhedrin 107a), a stag (ibid, 95a), a woman (ibid, 81a), a beggar, or a young man (Midrash Tanchuma, Wayera, end); he is said to skip (Talmud Pesachim 112b and Megilla. 11b), in allusion to his appearance in the form of a goat.

In 2014, The Satanic Temple commissioned an 8.5 ft (2.6 m) statue of Baphomet to stand alongside a monument of the Ten Commandments at Oklahoma State Capitol, citing "respect for diversity and religious minorities" as reasons for erecting the monument. After the Ten Commandments monument was vandalized, plans to erect the Baphomet statue were put on hold, as the Satanic Temple did not want their statue to stand alone by the Oklahoma capitol. The Oklahoma Supreme Court declared all religious displays illegal, and on 25 July 2015 the statue was erected near a warehouse in Detroit, as a symbol of the modern Satanist movement.

The term Satanism refers etymologically to "Satan" and thus to the cultural area of the monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam. However, the idea of a dualistic world in which a very simplified battle between good and evil is fought goes back to older religions such as Zoroastrianism. At the center of this belief is the creator god Ahura Mazda against Ahriman. Gnostic currents adopted this dualism. A motif of modern Satanism - the deification of man ("Deus est homo") - can also be found in the gnostic snake cults of antiquity (ophites). It shimmers through in the sentence “You will be like God and know what is good and what is bad” (Gen 3,5 LUT).

The term path to the left hand denotes an esoteric / magical orientation. The term itself comes from the Hindu tantra and was introduced by Helena Blavatsky, the founder of theosophy, into western occultism as a term for immoral (sexual) and black magic. In doing so, she linked the left with evil, since left often had a negative connotation in parlance. "Left-handed" was associated with homosexual at that time, while "left-footers" was understood to mean Catholics in Protestant areas. Aleister Crowley, who "played" with Satanism, made the path his own and ultimately popularized it.

The terms path to the left hand and path to the right hand became esoteric over time to express two opposing philosophies in the western esoteric traditions of occultism. The path to the left hand is often equated with bad black magic and the path to the right hand with good white magic. Other occultists simply use this to refer to different approaches without including good and bad.

Newer definitions see the difference in following an ethical code and social conventions or rejecting them and breaking taboos.

Social conventions, the status quo, are usually rejected.
Magical practices that break convention, such as sex magic or satanism, are common. [...] breaking of taboos makes magick more potent and can lead to reintegration and liberation, [for example] the eating of meat in a vegetarian community can have the same liberating effect as anal intercourse in a sexually inhibited straight society. "
Religious or moral values are questioned and instead a personal code is followed.
Sexuality is often integrated into magical rituals.

Satanist groups such as the Church of Satan, the Church of Set, the Order of the Nine Angles and various Eastern philosophies such as forms of Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism are considered representatives.

The path to the right hand

Following social conventions and observing taboos.
The division of mind, body and soul into three interacting parts.
Following a moral code and believing in a higher jurisdiction such as karma.

Theosophy, Wicca, Neopaganism, Druidic Faith, the Ordo Templi Orientis, the Gnostic Catholic Church, forms of Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism and some more can be assigned to the path to the right hand.

Gestas (also Gistas, Gesmas or Stegas) is the post-biblical legendary name of the unrepentant thief who was crucified with him on the left of Jesus. According to the passion story of the evangelist Luke (23.39–43 EU) it was he who mocked Jesus, whereupon his fellow sufferer rebuked him on the other side.

The name is found for the first time in the Gospel of Nicodemus (9, 4), an apocryphal script from the 4th century AD, where the "good" thief is also named as Dismas. In the Legenda aurea it occurs in the different forms Gestas, Gesmas and Sesmas.

Dismas (also Dysmas, Dimas or since the Middle Ages Dumachus; † around 30 in Jerusalem) is in the Christian tradition the name of the "right" ("good") criminal or thief who was crucified with Jesus and who, according to the Gospel of Luke, showed repentance on the cross, for which Jesus promised him paradise (Lk 23,39ff EU). His name as well as that of the left thief Gestas, who mocked Jesus on the cross, are mentioned for the first time in the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus (9, 4) .

The name Dismas is possibly a derivation from the ancient Greek ἡ δυσμή "setting, sunset", in the figurative sense "end of life". .

"THE DEVIL. Yes, we confront here that phantom of all terrors, the dragon of all theogonies, the Ahriman of the Persians, the Typhon of the Egyptians, the Python of the Greeks, the old serpent of the Hebrews, the fantastic monster, the nightmare, the Croquemitaine, the gargoyle, the great beast of the Middle Ages, and—worse than all these—the Baphomet of the Templars, the bearded idol of the alchemist, the obscene deity of Mendes, the goat of the Sabbath. The frontispiece to this 'Ritual' reproduces the exact figure of the terrible emperor of night, with all his attributes and all his characters ..."

"Yes, in our profound conviction, the Grand Masters of the Order of Templars worshipped the Baphomet, and caused it to be worshipped by their initiates; yes, there existed in the past, and there may be still in the present, assemblies which are presided over by this figure, seated on a throne and having a flaming torch between the horns."'_Sabbath

The original Hebrew term śāṭān (Hebrew: שָּׂטָן‎) is a generic noun meaning "accuser" or "adversary", which is used throughout the Hebrew Bible to refer to ordinary human adversaries, as well as a specific supernatural entity. The word is derived from a verb meaning primarily "to obstruct, oppose". When it is used without the definite article (simply satan), the word can refer to any accuser, but when it is used with the definite article (ha-satan), it usually refers specifically to the heavenly accuser: the satan.

In Judaism, Satan is the one who takes the side of the indictment at the judgment seat of God (Sach 3 EU). This also illustrates its subordinate function: He acts on behalf of God.

This view lives on in the person of the Advocatus Diaboli, who performs this function in negotiations at the chair of Peter. In the book of Job, Satan is referred to as one of the sons of God, who was so high up in the hierarchy of angels that he had access to God's court (Job 1.6 ff. EU). A polarizing interpretation of the world as a struggle between good and evil emerged later from other religious currents (Persian and Babylonian religions) in Jewish culture and was initially of little importance. It became theologically relevant with the emergence of Christianity.

Satan only became known in later Jewish mythologies, such as that according to Otto Eißfeldt before 63 BC. The apocryphal book of Enoch, dated to the 4th century BC, is described as a fallen angel who, together with his followers, rebelled against God's will and was banished to earth as a punishment (1 Enoch 52: 3; 53: 6). "

The Devil does not exist. It is a false name invented by the Black Brothers to imply a Unity in their ignorant muddle of dispersions. A devil who had unity would be a God... "The Devil" is, historically, the God of any people that one personally dislikes... This serpent, SATAN, is not the enemy of Man, but He who made Gods of our race, knowing Good and Evil; He bade "Know Thyself!" and taught Initiation. He is "The Devil" of The Book of Thoth, and His emblem is BAPHOMET, the Androgyne who is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection... He is therefore Life, and Love. But moreover his letter is ayin, the Eye, so that he is Light; and his Zodiacal image is Capricornus, that leaping goat whose attribute is Liberty.

Yom Kippur (/ˌjɒm kɪˈpʊər, ˌjɔːm ˈkɪpər, ˌjoʊm-/;[1] Hebrew: יוֹם כִּיפּוּר‎, IPA: [ˈjom kiˈpuʁ], or Hebrew: יום הכיפורים‎, romanized: Yom HaKippurim), also known as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a day-long fast and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.

With Luther's translation of the Christian Bible into German, the term scapegoat was coined. According to the traditional Christian interpretation of the version of history (Lev 16,3-26 LUT) in the Old Testament, all sins of the people are charged to the goat in a symbolic act, the "goat for Asasel" is interpreted as a substitute "scapegoat". To this day, a scapegoat is someone who is falsely blamed and ultimately held responsible by unrepentant people for their own misfortunes, mistakes and sins, and who is sometimes eliminated, although the original concept required a confession of own guilt and repentance from the community.

"Satanophobia is the fear of satan. This fear is associated with demonophobia (fear of demons) and stygiophobia (fear of hell). These people are scared of burning in hell forever and being tortured by the demons and being anguished forever in hell and being tormented by Satan. People with this fear usually have very strong religious backgrounds thus they would do anything to do what is right so that they don’t have to suffer an eternity in hell but have an afterlife in the midst of the angels in heaven instead."

"Counterphobic attitude is a response to anxiety that, instead of fleeing the source of fear in the manner of a phobia, actively seeks it out, in the hope of overcoming the original anxiousness.

Contrary to the avoidant personality disorder, the counterphobic represents the less usual, but not totally uncommon, response of seeking out what is feared: codependents may fall into a subcategory of this group, hiding their fears of attachment in over-dependency."

"Family scapegoating refers to the group dynamic where everyone blames one person for the dysfunctional family. Instead of looking at all the potential factors in a particular situation, the family can quickly assume one person has caused the distress.

Sometimes, these family scapegoats are fixed and permanent. That means the scapegoat may remain in that role indefinitely."

Scapegoating is the practice of singling out a person or group for unmerited blame and consequent negative treatment. Scapegoating may be conducted by individuals against individuals (e.g. "he did it, not me!"), individuals against groups (e.g., "I couldn't see anything because of all the tall people"), groups against individuals (e.g., "Jane was the reason our team didn't win"), and groups against groups.

A scapegoat may be an adult, child, sibling, employee, peer, ethnic, political or religious group, or country. A whipping boy, identified patient, or "fall guy" are forms of scapegoat.

A medical definition of scapegoating is:

"Process in which the mechanisms of projection or displacement are utilized in focusing feelings of aggression, hostility, frustration, etc., upon another individual or group; the amount of blame being unwarranted." Scapegoating is a hostile tactic often employed to characterize an entire group of individuals according to the unethical or immoral conduct of a small number of individuals belonging to that group. Scapegoating relates to guilt by association and stereotyping.

Scapegoated groups throughout history have included almost every imaginable group of people: genders, religions, people of different races, nations, or sexual orientations, people with different political beliefs, or people differing in behaviour from the majority. However, scapegoating may also be applied to organizations, such as governments, corporations, or various political groups.

I am going to discuss the toxic dynamic between a highly malignant narcissistic ‘golden child,’ and the ‘scapegoated child’. Not all golden children are narcissistic, sociopathic, or psychopathic. The vast majority are just ‘golden’ – as in all good, doted on, coddled, and adored. However, the narcissistic ‘golden child’ is not so benign, and more often than not will take great pleasure in supporting the narcissistic parent in destroying the scapegoat child’s confidence and self- esteem. Sibling to sibling psychological abuse is very real and can affect the children abused by these toxic siblings terribly in adulthood.

Victim blaming occurs when the victim of a crime or any wrongful act is held entirely or partially at fault for the harm that befell them. The study of victimology seeks to mitigate the prejudice against victims, and the perception that victims are in any way responsible for the actions of offenders. There is historical and current prejudice against the victims of domestic violence and sex crimes, such as the greater tendency to blame victims of rape than victims of robbery if victims and perpetrators knew each other prior to the commission of the crime.

Gaslighting is a colloquialism for a specific type of manipulation where the manipulator is successful in having the target (a person or a group of people) question their own reality, memory or perceptions. There is often a power dynamic in gaslighting where the target is vulnerable because they are fearful of losses associated with challenging the manipulator. Gaslighting is not necessarily malicious or intentional, although in some cases it is.

The term is derived from the title of the 1938 British play Gas Light where a vulnerable protagonist is manipulated to believe a harmful and false reality that benefits the self-serving antagonist.
