A Child of the Lovecraft Generation Speaks: A Conversation With Nikolas Schreck

March 2015 Interview by Martin of Fra Sortsand

A lot of quite, shall we say colourful, material is floating around the Internet about you. Thus before we begin, you should perhaps in your own words give us a brief introduction to the path which has led to your current status as artist and teacher.

 

If “colourful” is Danish for “bullshit”, then yes, there’s plenty of that floating around the Misinformation Highway’s cesspool. Just today, I learned from a Canadian anti-Illuminati blog that the sonic magic class I recently taught in Berlin somehow proves that the CIA mind control program MK ULTRA covertly took over America! Luckily, more accurate data abounds in several recent comprehensive interviews archived on my website, YouTube channel and Facebook page. I’ve obliged many other interviewers with short introductions on how my initiatory journey led from paganism, Devil Worship, and ceremonial magic to my current practice and teaching of Tantric Buddhism. But I’ve concluded that it’s impossible and even irresponsible to try to briefly convey the reality of mysticism, magic and metaphysics to those who’ve never dedicated themselves to any daily spiritual practice nor undergone a mystical experience. As all ancient wisdom traditions insist, the mysteries of the sacred can’t be understood intellectually on a theoretical basis. Since your blog’s dedicated to horror literature, this communication challenge is even trickier.

Many of your readers’ only exposure to the spiritual world may come through pop culture treatment of the supernatural, which provides a grossly distorted idea of the real thing. It suffices to say here that the gods and demons of various pantheons played a decisive role in my life since childhood, and that under the influence of the 1960s black magical revival, including the surge of interest in Satanic sorcery the horror boom of that period ignited, I dedicated myself to decades of ceremonial magic practice before abandoning Western occultism, first for the Hindu-based Tantric Vama Marga, before formally converting to Tantric Buddhism.

Given that the horror genre’s stock in trade is magic, demons, the survival of ancient gods, spells, curses, possession, life after death and reincarnation – the core themes of my everyday existence – I’ve always found it a paradox that so many horror authors and their readers are atheist materialists for whom these timeless phenomena are merely antiquated superstitions suited for escapist entertainment. Conversely, many gullible occultists wrongly believe that such genre figures as Lovecraft and his ilk revealed genuine initiatory wisdom in their fiction. Because I’ve dwelt in both worlds, perhaps I can help bridge this gap.

UNDER DRUG BURN THEORY

One reason why I support Nikolas Schreck’s book so much is long before his great TLB bible called The Manson File – Myth And Reality Of An Outlaw Shaman (and I am not even going to plug the book here with a link because it’s that damn good and doesn’t need it) I began going down the drug burn theory road and Schreck’s book and other information helped keep me as sane as possible along the way by confirming what I was finding from police reports and official documents.

While I am always open to any logical theory I lean to the drug burn because where there’s smoke there’s usually fire.



Here is some of the smoke I see from my own discoveries.

UNDER DRUG BURN THEORY: Some Facts and Factors

Voytek Frykowski – drugs

Jay Sebring – drugs

Joel Rostau – Drug dealer – Mafia connected

Charlene (Karleen) McCaffery – Sebring receptionist/assistant…Rostau girlfriend.

Lets start with the possibility that drugs were being dealt out of Cielo:

FBI Report says a shipment of “household goods” left England bound for LA and was
consigned to Voytek (and Roman).

This shipment was also suspected of containing drugs and US Customs was advised.

The Second Tate Homicide report has McCaffery informing police that Rostau was at Cielo
the day of the murders delivering drugs.

Right there are two pieces of seemingly solid evidence of drug dealing going out of Cielo.

“Mindfulness is a central daily practice in all forms of Buddhism, but you don’t have to be of any particular religious persuasion to obtain clarity by simply relaxing your mind from its compulsive mulling over the past or fantasizing about the future into an unforced awareness of this present moment. Once you make a habit of paying attention to your mind as it goes through its moment by moment paces, you would be amazed to see how often we spend our lives on automatic pilot, in a kind of waking dream.”

From Paris in the Sinister Sixties to Hollywood’s Magic Castle: How the Cult Horror Actor Ferdy Mayne Provided the Last Nail in the Coffin for THE MANSON FILE

 Life’s twists and turns, you may have noticed, have a way of coming full circle in the most unexpected ways. When exploring that unfathomable black hole in the spacetime continuum we know as the Tate-LaBianca case, I’ve seen this pattern of synchronicities and eternal returns border on the mind-boggling.

Consider if you will, as Rod Serling might have put it when introducing an episode of The Twilight Zone, how my interactions with the on-screen reel life and the off-screen real life of the late great actor Ferdy Mayne led to a decisive turning point in my understanding of the Tate-LaBianca murders. In honor of the karmic debt I owe to Herr Mayne for his groundbreaking assistance in my research, this, what would’ve been his 99th birthday, makes a fitting occasion to offer a few observations on the oddity of it all.
