Balanone's Temple of Set FAQ
1.0 -- Introduction
The Temple of Set is probably best described as an initiatory magical order of the Left Hand Path, a description which probably doesn't mean much to those without occult backgrounds.
Initiatory means the ToS advocates self-advancement through a series of levels of self-knowledge and similar attributes.
Magical means that the ToS openly works with magic (non-scientific cause and effect), not stage magic.
Left Hand Path indicates that the path followed by Setians is one of concentration and refinement of the self, leading toward more and more individuality and more and more individualism, as opposed to the Right Hand Path goals of growing toward some outwardly determined standard.
A slightly more detailed introduction can be found in the REF.
