It must be made clear at the outset that Love Chaos is NOT a dogmatic religion and philosophy. It is exactly the opposite.
Also, all of my (Derek Hunter) work contained within this website has not been changed and my thinking has pretty much remained the same. In many ways Love Chaos has been a philosophy sitting within me waiting to be born my entire life. When I look back at my life and see my journey, I see how so many things I chose to do has led me to this point.
As for the connection between my other work - novels, short story collections and other works of fiction, music albums, Tarot, and more - and Love Chaos, the vision of these works and Love Chaos completely gel. The point of view of my fiction, music, and the Tarot and other things (such as my interest in Magick) falls in line with the point of view of Love Chaos.
Love Chaos is now the umbrella so to speak under which all my work lives under, both past and future works. It is as if before my books and albums and Tarot were the homes, businesses, restaurants, banks, schools, libraries of a frontier population that had yet to give themselves a name, had yet to consider themselves a town or city. Love Chaos is the governing body, the City Hall, the name for the town, the city, of this frontier population.
In addition to the book, for those individuals who would like to follow the philosophy of Love Chaos, there are Three Steps one can take:
Step One - Love Chaos To have Love Chaos as a guiding principle in one's life.
Step Two - Love Chaos Psychology To use psychological tools in one's life.
Step Three - Love Chaos Magick To practice Magick in one's life.
Step One can be done by itself and the following two steps are not required if one wishes not to. Step Two can be done without doing Step Three but cannot be done without following Step One. Step Three cannot be done without following both Step One and Step Two.
If you are interested in following these steps, or have questions regarding what these steps entail, you can begin what is called the Love Chaos Dialogue by communicating with me via e-mail at:
Below is the Introduction to the book, Love Chaos, the "Holy Bible" of this new religion, philosophy, way of life:
Why start a new religion? Why a new philosophy? Why a new way of life? How can I presume to think whatever I have to say is worth anyone’s time, let alone important enough to begin a new belief system? Aren’t there too many religions out there already? Aren’t all religions essentially dying anyway? Why even bother with coming up with something new? How can I presume to think Love Chaos is even new at all? Does the world really need a new religion, a new philosophy, a new way of life? Isn’t humanity finally at the point where we can start to live life without belief systems? And anyhow, what is Love Chaos?
I hope to answer these questions and more within this book. Consider this book the Holy Bible of Love Chaos. If you have purchased this book you are now a member of Love Chaos. You are now a practicing Love Chaos Individual. It’s up to you whether you wish to continue this path. But by reading this book you’ve taken the first few steps. After reading this book more steps will follow.
These steps will not be in the form of attending services every Sunday. It will not be in the form of paying annual dues. It will not be in the form of making secret oaths which you will be held to for the rest of your life. The only obligation is the living out of Love Chaos in your life, which has started with reading this book.
At this point Love Chaos is simply run and coordinated and organized by me, Derek Hunter. I founded Love Chaos in 2014 but it is something I have been working on for my entire life, especially since my teens. At the time of the publication of this book I am 36 years old so basically for the last 20 (or 36) years I’ve been both consciously and subconsciously preparing for this book and this new philosophy.
A few notes on the set-up/interior design/”look” of this book. Each chapter is simply one page. Facing each chapter’s page is a color: black, red, or white. There is a significance of why one color is facing each specific chapter/page, but not to be explained, at least not within this book.
What is important for the reader to know about the colors is the immediate subconscious effect the color has on the reader once seen. One thing should be clear is that traditional perspectives on these colors should NOT be taken into account, at least not as the main way to interpret them. Therefore, black does not necessarily equal “evil,” white “good,” nor red “love” or “hate.” The reader should simply allow the subconscious to respond without preconceived notions.
The chapters are also referred to as “Eyes” or “Insights” and thus why an Eye is placed at the top of each Chapter/Eye/Insight’s page. Each chapter is meant to provide an insight into life. The symbol of the Eye is very important in the philosophy of Love Chaos. Perception is Key.
