THE WATCHERS BY THE GATE OF HORN
THE MYSTIC MANIFESTO
Informed by these bright thought-gems THE WATCHERS BY THE GATE OF HORN will craft art-sorcery to arm the human species on its long road to doom. May that doom be filled with glory. Strength. Energy. Hope. Doom. These we will bring. Know our works by our sigil:
This sigil will only be placed on a work, in a work, or on a work's packaging when all Watchers agree that the following criteria have been met:
- The work is touched by a sense of dream - the mystical, the occult, the fantastical, or the surreal.
- The work is a hyper-sigil, or part of one. Its specific details will be known to the Watchers and no one else.
- If the work presents gender, it will present genders on equal terms. The work must not engage in typical gender politicking - it will present a world where gender equality is not even questioned, as we hold this equality to be a self-evident human right. We believe that this must be normalised through art and culture first. This holds true for race.
- The work has made a genuine effort to be as ecologically just as possible, leaving little to no damage in its production.
- The work does not dwell on the empty relativism of our age. We watch the approach of the Nothing and prepare our hyper-sigils to catch in its throat. Now that nothing has meaning we are free to create meaning.
- The work does not glorify, excuse, or collude with the lich-like corporate menace that strips us of our worth.
- The work values the Left-Hand Path as a paradigm for personal and spiritual freedom.
