Describing Nothing as something is somewhat paradoxical at first glance. I’m sure that even after a full, complete explanation of the concept, some will still be left in a state of confusion. Nevertheless, I will attempt to articulate the nature of the Nothingness of the Void, as it stands in the context of our Cult, as clear and accurately as human language will allow, as a true understanding can not be gained from a provided description, or discourse on it, but only from firsthand experience. That which lies at the heart of the nature of Nothingness is not a physical, or even psychological substance, but a primordial one. There is a presence to be felt in complete absence, and it is what we refer to as the Void.
When one removes all mental, physical, psychological and spiritual concerns from the mind, they enter what is commonly referred to as a trance state. This trance state can be found in nearly every primitive, shamanistic, or enlightenment-seeking religion across the world. It is a common practice amongst Hindus, Buddhists, other various traditions, and those who utilize their techniques for their own practices to meditate to achieve a sense of “Oneness” or to clear/empty the mind. This is reflected in many traditions, the world over, and is the purest way to work into direct communication with the Void. To empty the self, as an honoring reflection of the Void, allows the practitioner to enter a state of “Oneness” with the Void. This has been a common practice to gain either Divine Insight from whatever deity the individual is attempting to communicate with, or to obtain hidden knowledge, or Gnosis, from whatever impulses of the universe to practitioner seeks to derive this knowledge from.
Humans have always felt that by retreating from the physical world, as well as our own mental microcosm, there is something to be found. We have found that the something there IS Nothing. It is the purity of emptiness, the beauty of eternal black, the infinite possibility of non-certainty. When there is nothing, there is no limit, no restriction, and no end. It is from this nothingness that humanity has gestated their greatest ideas, leading with proper effort of applied Will, to their greatest achievements and creations. This state of Nothing, is from whence everything comes. Nothing itself is the origin of all, the womb of invention, the Mother of Thought. From the Void, comes all.
