"Ken Barber" :
# Tree of Life would know of how the constructions of qlippoth and 
# other unspoken of entities lie inside the Tree of Life or outside.

there is no one Tree of Life.  absolute proclamations about the
various constructs called 'the Tree of Life' are ludicrous.
there are many of them and what lies 'inside' or 'outside' these
very important mystical diagrams is quite debatable.

# ...if there has ever been attempted a proper system of 
# "satanic" or "anti-christian" form of magic or otherwise.

I don't think so, not yet.  there are those who have gone
past the strictly puritanical GDawnian and Enochian angelic
diatribes (like Kenneth Grant and people like Michael Bertiaux),
but few have actively incorporated an anti-Christian or very
obviously Satanic theme.  LaVey started some things with his
(apparently meager) co-options of Enochian Calls, but the few
times I've seen these reviewed they didn't seem too viable as
foundations for anything lasting, just anomalies.

# ...twisted the Holy Kabalah into something you may guys 
# may call "unholy".

the Hermetics started doing this when they got into the various
Qliphotic realms (shells, as of the sephoroth or spheres),
also Lurianic though more personal in characterization.  Grant
took this further from Crowley's _Liber CCXXXI_ and extrapolated
the various 'Tunnels of Set' (paths).  I've tried to construct
a summary within _Liber Qliphoth_, Part One of which can be 
found at:

Part Two (summarizing Grant's Tunnels) is in draft stage and 
awaiting review by someone with some of the published summaries
of Grant's materials (I gather there are one or two and one of
my kin who said she'd do it hasn't got back to it yet -- perhaps
this mention will spur her onward, else anyone who'd like to
volunteer to join in the editing please email me directly).

blessed beast!
