Magic is Sublime

Snippet from a Reddit conversation: I wrote: LordNyssa wrote: That’s why magick in any true sense, is and will always be personal. Magic is sublime or this is to say it is beyond you. You know how the night sky is sublime and is beyond you. Thinking about the night sky and vastness of space implies that you are very very tiny. My apartment is personal. In respect, the Earth isn’t. So, if there was a tornado or an earthquake, my poor little personal space would be rattled around or outright obliterated. Magic is sublime in that sense. Magic is Read More


Magic is a Game

This is a topic a lot of people have been asking me about (I’ve been getting emails like crazy). When I have time, I’ll write a more formal posting, but this is a conversation I had on reddit on this. The conversation has been redacted and cleaned up for clarity and relevancy. I wrote: …I don’t have, nor really believe in, a Great Work. I’m working on an article on this, but, from my perspective, magic is a type of game. Trying to come up with a theory of magic is like trying to come up with a theory of Read More


What is Magic?

This is another discussion online that I decided to curate since this question pops up a lot. This one was a discussion I was involved in on Reddit. The original thread can be found here. Karaoglanlar wrote: …It made me wonder if magic is real at all, with real I mean if it is possible to use your willpower to produce supernatural effects. It also made me wonder if all the deities and demons modern occultists describe are real external entities or just part of the practicioner’s psyche which he or she ‘summons’ through psychological exercises. So what I’m wondering Read More


Switching To Digital Art For Magic

A lot of my magical practices utilize very elaborate illustrations of different symbols and archetypes. A lot of my practices include sigils, seals, talismans, various languages, and fantastical illustrations of things I might encounter. If I run into an unfamiliar being, I will sketch it out. For me, it was always important that it have some sort of aesthetic. I need to be able to look at it and think it’s pretty. On the left side of this post (above this post if you are viewing this from a mobile device) is an example of my work. My art very Read More


Harmonically Bridging The Future

My fiancé is a genius! He used his intuitive knowledge as a singer to help me figure out how to make manipulation of reality through manipulation of probable futures consistent. Temporal histories and probabilities are basically a set of harmonics, according to Physics. Time is less like a line and more like a collection of superimposed sinusoidal waves. You can see this if you look at how you can use Fourier Transformation (FT) to turn instances of time-dependent objects into frequency spectrums. Since the intervals of edges of concepts are “like” time in a lot of ways, you can apply Read More


Journal Notes: Enchanted Fantasy Literature?

This intended to be a quick note, so I don’t forget. I am sharing this idea because a goal of this blog was that I would supplement the mechanics I talk about with how I personally use them. This is a thought that just occurred to me while playing one of my favorite games of all time, Chrono Trigger. I am actually at the part of the game where you end up in the magical kingdom of Zeal. That part of the game and the musical score is actually my favorite. I love the musical score for Schala, Magus (Janus), Read More
