Ancient Occult ( is an official website of Robert Anthony. Today's ideas of the dark arts are commercialized misrepresentations of the actual traditional concept(s); here on this website, you will find documentation regarding actual ancient occultism, the mystery religions/cultures of old being the foundation of esoteric and magical practices⁠—consistent with perspectives of the past of course (e.g. Eliphas Levi, Aleister Crowley, Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa). 

Moreover, Robert views comparative mythology as a tool of divination. The earth works in patterns and varieties; be it various forms of crops, animals, or human ideologies in general, all are a product of the earth ("from dust they came, to dust they shall return"), and can therefore be used in magical practices. As Job 12:8 says: "speak to the earth, and it will teach you." 

Unfortunately however, when it comes to the numerous differing mythological perspectives of antiquity, many people (specifically within the so-called occult community) have been tricked into this lie that the Bible is a Christian source, and is therefore to be skipped over somehow (when it comes to such textual studies). Of course, in this point of view, one could not even read through Eliphas Levi's Transcendental Magic: Its Doctrine and Ritual, as he quotes the Bible left and right in such a work. The Bible is actually one of the largest bodies of occult literature that we presently have, as it is covered and coated in astro-theological esotericism, paralleling other compilations of pagan writings without a doubt. 

The earth is a mystical concept; it displays all sorts of synchronistic phenomena. In observing such things of nature, looking to ancient texts is absolutely key in understanding the enigmatic nature of omens and signs (divination being an observational practice).
