## Oxford Mathematician explains SIR Travelling Wave disease model for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The SIR model is one of the simplest ways to understand the spread of a disease such as COVID-19 (Coronavirus) through a population. Allowing the movement of populations makes the model slightly more realistic and results in ‘Travelling Wave’ solutions.

## 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

## Magical Reality Warping and Magical Portals

Or are you going to a parallel universe which is 99.99% the same, the only difference being that the new one has the changes you desire? I wrote: Yes, this reality is shifting. DJThrow4wayyy wrote: Can you elaborate? I wrote: Shifting future probabilities is shifting future histories, so the reality that emerges is changed. You’re shifting future realities.

## Occult Shapes, Symbols, and Magical Energy

vronox wrote: I’ve always wondered about the importance of shapes in certain symbols like for example if the second pentacle of mercury has to be enclosed by a circle or could it be something like below: Would it even work? Does shape of rhombus change anything? I know it’s a stupid question but I’m just corious to what extent can you modify those symbols. I wrote: Shapes are derived from vectors and postulates, so a different shape is a different formula and vectors and thus different rays of different angles. Intuitively, think about how the shape of a mirror changes Read More
