You guys are always so quick to declare “it’s not better just because it’s older!” but utterly fail to comprehend the exact opposite is also true. You want “cutting edge”? Then follow Dee’s example, learn the Old Magick, contact the spirits, and ask them to teach you something new. That’s how it’s supposed to work.” –Aaron Leitch Too good to not pass on… I wrote: Stop trying to find “cutting edge” magick, get off your ass, and learn the magick Read More

## An Abstract Approach to Magical and Psychic Forces and Energy

Definitions of Magic “What is magic?” or what is “Psi” or “What is subtle energy?” and other questions like that are questions that routinely get asked a lot in paranormal communities. A lot of pedagogies in paranormal communities and cultures attempt to answer that question from the axioms of their paradigms and the intuitions of their cultural frameworks. How different places and authors decide to answer these questions tends to be derived from a cultural perspective so that the answer is predicated by how cultures and communities do things. In a lot of communities, this idea of magic being predicated Read More

## Telepathy, Psychic Fields, Subtle Energy, and the Afterlife

Dunabu wrote: The nature and ramifications of the “aether” by which telepathy is possible. Long story short, I’ve finally tapped into this thing, but I understand very little of its nature. What is it? All energy? Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena? Is death even really real?… …By the way, anyone have any legit books or resources about telepathy/psionics? I must learn more theory and know everything!… I wrote: Dunabu wrote: …by which telepathy is possible… Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena?

## Magical and Psychic Fields, Frequencies, and Energy

Gaffluence wrote: Is magick even real?… Isn’t it just shifting ones focus and subconscious expectations, invoking parts of ones own psyche and enacting archtypes? Or does the woo-woo such as “sit on a rock on the second saturday of the month while holding lavendar from yosemite” have tangible effects? And what about what Tesla said about energy, frequency and vibration; how does that play into it?… I wrote: Gaffluence wrote: And what about what Tesla said about energy, frequency and vibration; how does that play into it?

## Discrete Math, Digital Art, and Grimoires

I was just curious if any of you have a program or app that you use for creating your own digital grimoires? I’m looking for compatability with my phone (LG V40), exportation to PDF if possible and the ability to organize it in traditional book format.

## Geomancy and Thaumaturgy: Creating a Lo Shu Magic Square in Python

I am not a ceremonial magician; however, I practice Alchemy, Geomancy, and Thaumaturgy. There was a discussion on Thaumaturgy and how it relates to classical medieval figures such as Agrippa and John Dee. That conversation between zsd23 and I can be found here. I go in-depth on the mathematical basis for John Dee. I mention Agrippa, but I don’t explain too much the algorithms he was using. Agrippa was using a class of algorithms called magic square algorithms. In the book De occulta philosophia libri tres, Agrippa mentions 7 planetary magic squares. Those magic squares form the basis of a Read More
