Carlos Melendez was one of the first USA IOT initiates , having received initation from Bob Williams and Lola Babalon of the first IOT USA group called Temple of Oblivion.
Carlos became interested in chaos magick after a thorough search of prevailing literature and finding "Liber Null" by Pete Carroll. The then, readical new approach to magick resonated with his belief system and subsequently wrote a letter to Pete Carroll requesting initiation into the IOT.
Carlos started his magical career with the IOT Temple of Oblivion and then Epic Temple, followed by his own temple as MT. The rest is all pretty much history; as the IOT expanded, Dr. Melendez resigned and continued chaos magick training in the Santa Barbara area.
He is currently OHO of the Temple of Luna and the Temple of the Stars.
Carlos is also the administrator for the Facebook "Temple of Luna"; a chaos magick temple, with mystery school connection having emphasis on advanced forms of internal magick and alchemy. This advanced approach is an evolutionary reflex of the current Temple of Luna, now located in Santa Barbara, CA.
