Frater Alysyrose is a modern occultist, khaos magician, painter, pen & pencil artist, writer, and music artist, most well known for his affiliation and activities within DKMU. A member of the original Z-Cluster, he has been active in the online occult community in one way or another for years. He is the lead vocalist, instrumentalist and programmer for his band Pill Corporation [], and has contributed his musical style to various other bands and side projects. As an author, his creative writing style is usually depicted as psychedelic in nature, combining many subjects and feelings into a string of expressionist and surreal prose. Alysyrose contributed to DKMU's first book, Occultus Conturbo, and was the primary project-head and editor of DKMU's second book, The Assault on Reality: A Field Manual for the Strange Psyche. Alysyrose has been a driving force in the continuation and growth of DKMU. At the end of the book, an interview with him is included where Alysyrose states the DKMU as:
GP: I would say so. Are there any leaders or officials in DKMU?
Alysy: Everyone expects there to be, but there’s really not. I may be one of the better known personalities within it, along with some others, and being a founder of the DK, people tend to look to you for some answers, but it’s a far stretch to say that I or any of the other council members in the DK ranks actually “lead” the group. We’re more or less a completely autonomous organization. I really wouldn’t have it any other way.
GP: Interesting. Not many groups survive using that system. Isn’t it anarchy, in a sense?
Alysy: You say that like it’s a bad thing.
GP: I didn’t mean it like that (laughs). It’s just when there’s no central voice of a group it seems to just stumble along and soon disband. Off the top of my head I don’t recall any occult group or current for that matter that pulled it off successfully who we can still easily name. Or maybe I’m confusing leadership with dogma?
Alysy: Perhaps, and we have neither. If I were to give a real description of the thing as it exists, I would say that DKMU operates via a kind of a sub-culture of artists. You can take artist to mean anything you want, so long as it involves some kind of creative procedure. Those who create more frequently, or create things of a higher worth (but who’s to say?) are the ones who gain the respect they deserve, and along that, a sort of leadership and following in their own right. Is it any different from a band with a strong fan-base? I suppose “artist” could also relate, plainly, to the caliber of the innovative, ingenious nature of a person, which is easily noticed in nearly all forms of communication they choose to express themselves in. It’s like the free market, without the evil. It’s a brutally honest system at its heart, one that I think the so-called “real world” could take a lesson from. In our world, money does not equal power. The caliber and intellect of the individual equals real power. Some older examples of this can be found in the likes of Plato, Lucretius, Buddha, Socrates, Einstein, Jesus, etc. etc. Take your pick.
