Talisman of Focusing Rings, Conceptual Fields, Atomic Concepts, and Energy Flow

Talisman of Focusing Rings So, this is a complex sorcerous talisman of mine. With talismans, the symbols act as conduits. The power comes from the entities (in this case psychic objects) associated with the representation.

Those concepts comprise the nodes of the outer ring and the lines throughout the talisman are a mapping of the psychic forces from those concepts – it acts as a vector of psychic forces.

What shape do you most associate with a standard analog clock? Your reflex answer might be a circle, but a more natural answer is actually a torus. Surprised? Then stick around.

Times Tables, Mandelbrot and the Heart of Mathematics

The good old times tables lead a very exciting secret life involving the infamous Mandelbrot set, the ubiquitous cardioid and a myriad of hidden beautiful patterns. Time for the Mathologer to go on a serious fact-finding mission.

Beware People Who Use Terms Like This

So, there is a new person who popped up on my Discord server, who is new to the world of psychic stuff, and pretty much did what new people typically do. They joined many different communities and platforms and spammed the same questions across different communities. The below is one of the answers to a question they asked in a community called Psionic Social Club (PSC) that they had asked me about. But my shortest reasonably useful answer would be “psi energy is the subtle field of energy that permeates reality and interacts with consciousness in a mutually co-arisen way, Read More

Simplicial Complexes: Part 2

Last episode we saw that your neural network can be modeled as a graph, which — we’ll show in this episode — can be viewed as a higher-dimensional simplicial complex. So… what is a simplicial complex??
