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

Dungeons&Dragons, Game Rules, Game Boards, and Magical Fields

SockultLiterature wrote: I am currently in the process of writing my Grimoire, containing spells, rituals, rites, beliefs, truths etc and I want to keep it private. I have been creating languages for years (D&D dungeon master), but recently I have created one specifically for Magick use. It resonates with me and is reserved solely for special uses (i.e not casually banded about). It has power to me and carries my personal touch. All the grammatical rules are there, it is a fully fleshed out language.Question is, will it affect my Grimoire if I write it completely in this language?If so, Read More


The Paradgim I Operate In

This is a snippet from a conversation I had concerning the paradigm I operate in: My constructs are beautiful because they are elegant, though, it is really just an implementation of abelian fields… …The basis of my paradigm is a semantic ontology – domains of knowledge and tacit experience. The networks of the semantic ontology have linear transformations and is a differential of intentionality – I can show how experience and intentional objects change along with their corresponding waves and harmonics because it is orthogonally diagonalizable. It’s an abstraction of how concepts exists in a network and it currently compliments Read More


Western mysticism is closer to Dungeons and Dragons Than You Would Think

I wrote: Fantasy magic and “real” magic are closer than you think. Mathematically speaking, the Kabbalic tree of life is a tree in the same sense as a perk tree in Skyrim where the ontological basis doesn’t necessarily have to describe a vector of reality for prima facie, they are just “empty symbols” where they are given semantic meaning. To say it a different way, you can algorithmically traverse the tree of life whether or not you believe it to be real, so you can deduce that the relations are consistent and formulas derived from those relations are true regardless Read More


Conservation Laws and Magical and Psychic Energy

I wrote: Gaffluence wrote: Does the first law of Thermodynamics apply to magical energies too? The law being that, energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed (simplified version).   The answer is no. Conservation of energy is due a temporal translation invariance as described in Noether’s theorem and the Lagrangian. Energy conservation is a consequence of invariance under time translations. Something more abstract than time would not be beholden to that invariance and thus would not be conserved. Basically, if it is not physical, it would not be temporal, and if it is not temporal, it is not beholden Read More


Cytoscape

Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization. Cytoscape core distribution provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization.
