“Through communal emergence, you can create a very a powerful adversary. One that can bend the world, just a little, to the desire of your will. One that can affect change to a greater extent than could any one person. It is the closest thing there is to magic. Its power is limited only by the community and their combined creative energies.” —Narratives 5(Leviathan): 25-28
The Narrative of Leviathan is the fifth chapter in The Satanic Narratives: A modern Satanic Bible, and introduces the aspect of Leviathan: representing community for the creative freedom and betterment of every person.
The United Aspects of Satan encourages a balanced approach to the character from which we draw our inspiration: all of the aspects have something to teach us, and all can give us insight. The stereotypical “hermit on the hill” individualist, the “I’ve got mine and I don’t care what happens to you” libertarian, focuses on Belial at the expense of Leviathan. Such a person has narrowed xir worldview and personal growth by ignoring the evidence that we all exist as interconnected social beings. Such a person is not behaving rationally.
The Leviathan, on the other hand, operates under the slogan: We are legion! We are the chaos, the swarm. We understand the difference between being sheep following a leader, and being a collection of individuals who happen to be walking in the same direction, seeing the power that can result.
