Are Runes Inherently Magical?

Fearless_Oil wrote: Are runes inherently magical?… I was wondering if runes are inherently magical. If not, then why do people use them instead of making their own symbols? I wrote: No, they are not. People use them because they’re told to and it’s convenient. Fearless_Oil wrote: So from my personal understanding of magic and consciousness, something only works if you believe it works. Yet when I search this subreddit, people report greater success when using runes. Is this because people feel safer and more confident when using runes, or is it because of the reasons the person above stated? I Read More


My Response to “Stop trying to find ‘cutting edge’ magic”

eftresq wrote: Stop trying to find “cutting edge” magick, get off your ass, and learn the magick that already exists. 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


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? Is death even really real?… I am a telepath and I work in Biotechnology. Read More


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? Energy is not a “thing”. It is a scalar value for the relationship Read More


Symbols, Sigils, and Charging

There’s technically no reason to charge a sigil. A sigil is nothing more than a symbol. A symbol is just a categorization of things that are referenced. When I say car or book, I am creating a category where I am stating that things that fit the criteria of those categories do so such that they can be placed within that category and thus treated as extensional members. This means there is a relationship between objects in that category and that category – the symbol. Think of an arrow being drawn from the sigil/symbol to whatever the sigil is about. Read More


Psychokinesis and Biochemistry

zsd23 wrote: …As for paranormal activity, a lot of conditions can underlie it–some may be related to the imagination and hypnotic condition of the viewer(s), including a condition called folie a deux–referring to a shared delusion, some are simply manifestations via the power of belief, some are aspects of telekinetic phenomenon, which even neurologists have acknowledged as being caused by unusual and volatile energy generated by a person (not an otherworldly spirit). There are also infectious and projective aspects of human consciousness and the limitations of perception that are yet unknown that may explain manifestations of paranormal activity as well Read More


Discrete Math, Digital Art, and Grimoires

PriestOvTheBeast wrote: …Looking for some advice on refining my technomancy and improving the overall structure of my grimoire, I’m using Evernote atm and while it is perfectly functional it’s less “occult” than I might like. 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.

John Dee and Thaumaturgy

zsd232 wrote: …John Dee is also a key author, but Enochian magic attributed to him was actually manufactured from a small portion of his surviving writings, recovered quite a long time after his death… I wrote: I’ve found I’m one of the few sorcerers who practice what John Dee meant tacitly by Thaumaturgy – what would be referred to as engineering abstractly. It seems like a lot of people practice Theurgy – Enochian magic, under the impression that’s what John Dee meant by Thaumaturgy. He was referencing the idea of the archetypal “black box” where a mechanism abstractly does something Read More


Magical Reality Warping and Magical Portals

DJThrow4wayyy wrote: Hello everyone. I’ll be concise and get straight to it: When you manifest something, is reality shifting around you (ie: this plane changes/ rearranges to fit your will)? 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.

Psychic and Magical Teleportation

Spacellama117 wrote: Is teleportation in any form real? If so, resources on it. I Wrote: …It is. To say it very simply, there are harmonics of probability that say you could be somewhere else; however, the probability waves are so spread out you don’t randomly teleport. If you compress those waves, you can make it so the probability of an object being somewhere else is so likely it teleports. Via looking into the future of a thing and manipulating its future, you can teleport it. The mechanics are no different from any other application of magic that shifts future probability… Read More
