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. It’s a talisman of rings that defines a domain that acts as a loci for Experience, Perception, Awareness, Formation, Desire, and Fantasy so that psychic power resonates and is amplified. 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.

The Power of Your Words: “Non-Magical” Languages Can be More Powerful than Magical Ones

I am a fan of the Dresden Files series. In the Dresden files, there is a branch of elemental battle (or Boom!) magic in the series called evocation magic. It is the creating magical bullet deflecting elemental shields of air, conjuring magical streams of fire, and telekinetic concussive blasts type. It is like the Destruction school of magic in Skyrim. Harry Dresden, the main character of the series, is particularly fond of Fire and Wind evocation spells. Evocation magic in the Dresden universe caught my attention in particular because I specialize in conjuration and evocation of forces albeit I am Read More

Journal Notes: Enchanted Fantasy Literature?

This intended to be a quick note, so I don’t forget. I am sharing this idea because a goal of this blog was that I would supplement the mechanics I talk about with how I personally use them. This is a thought that just occurred to me while playing one of my favorite games of all time, Chrono Trigger. I am actually at the part of the game where you end up in the magical kingdom of Zeal. That part of the game and the musical score is actually my favorite. I love the musical score for Schala, Magus (Janus), Read More

Magic, Illusion, and Skepticism, with Bill Nye

In this week’s StarTalk All-Stars, host Bill Nye applies his scientific mind and skeptical nature to fan-submitted Cosmic Queries chosen by co-host Chuck Nice, on subjects from miracles and levitation to conspiracy theories and climate change denial. Explore the nature and practice of magic and illusion, like Pepper’s Ghost shown above, and how the magician’s skill and artistry can be much more important than the technology of a trick. You’ll hear how magicians exploit the human brain’s programming for pattern recognition to fool us, even when they’re telling us exactly what they’re doing, like Penn & Teller. Examine the value Read More

Matrix Sigil

The construct does not attach to all representations of that sigil. It is only attached to the instance of it on the post, so drawing a sigil that does not reference that particular instance on this post won’t do you any good. This is a sigil for one of my matrices. It is linked to an active and public matrix. After the initial focusing on it to use it, attention on it does not have to be sustained. I have not extensively tested it with other people besides myself, so feedback is appreciated. The matrix does: Increases the psychic power Read More
