1) “Does the ‘thought’ of Satan exist?”

What did Q mean by “thought of”? He’s referring to a key tenet of what’s known as Chaos Magic.
2) “Sometimes referred to as ‘success magic’ or ‘results-based magic,’ chaos magic claims to emphasize the attainment of specific results over the symbolic, ritualistic, theological or otherwise ornamental aspects of other occult traditions.” - WIKI
3) “Chaos magic has been described as a union of traditional occult techniques and applied postmodernism – particularly a postmodernist skepticism concerning the existence or knowability of objective truth. Chaos magicians subsequently treat BELIEF AS A TOOL”
4) “In chaos magic, complex symbol systems are treated as maps or ‘symbolic and linguistic constructs’ that can be manipulated to achieve certain ends but that have no absolute or objective truth value in themselves...often summarised as ‘NOTHING IS TRUE EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED’”
5) “Since chaos magic is built around an experimental approach...any practice from any magical tradition can be incorporated under the banner of chaos magic: from SATANIC RITUAL, to Wiccan sabbats”
6) Next bits are what Q was referring to with the “thought of Satan”:

“In chaos magic, when a complex of thoughts, desires and intentions appears to operate autonomously from the magician's consciousness (as if it were an independent being) then it is referred to as a servitor”
7) “When such a being becomes large enough that it exists independently of any one individual, as a form of "group mind", then it is referred to as an egregore.”

This is the Satan they worship. An “egregore.”
8) “The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the MEME.”

Remember what Q said about memes?
9) “There is TRUTH in MEMES. TRUTH that DESTROYS the FAKE NEWS narrative. HOUSE OF CARDS.”

“Meme magic” is sorta like the white magic fighting this belief system. Chaos magic denies the existence of Truth, while Memes channel the Truth.
10) “Within a psychological chaos magic model, a magician uses symbols to condition their unconscious to work towards their goals.”

This is why [they] are absolutely symbol-obsessed.
11) “Corporate sigils are super-breeders. They attack unbranded imaginative space. They invade Red Square, they infest the cranky streets of Tibet, they etch themselves into hairstyles. The logo or brand is a symbolic summoning of the world of desire” - Chaos magician
12) Symbolism will be their downfall.
