Humans can exemplify instances of angelic qualities and demonic qualities. An apple is red, so an apple is an instance of an exemplification of redness. Red crayons also exemplify redness, but an apple is an apple and a crayon a crayon. Yes, angelic humans I.e. priests ask for directions. Angels and demons walk among us in the form of humans. We just call it a miracle when a priest does something and magic when a sorcerer does it. Because angelic and demonic presence manifests through qualities of humanity, demonic or angelic presence is inherent in subtle human behaviors. We consider Read More
Psi balls, and all psionic constructs, are imaginary unless correlated with a real entity outside your mind. That correlation is a change, so you can determine if your imagined construct has a real influence by looking at changes in things that are not your mind. For example, if you intend to shift temperature or influence something, it should do work. Technically, psi balls are unrealistic conceptual abstractions that can model real influences. There is technically no ball of psychic energy between your hands because energy is an abstraction for how objects can change. My recommendation is to loop back veridical Read More

Some may consider magic itself as a subset within Psionics as a whole, adjacent perhaps to something like Reiki… I wrote: …how you guys abuse the word “energy” drives me bonkers. Energy is a scalar that describes the degree of how one variable, thing, object, category, and symbol can rotate in a vector space with respect to a frame of reference such that something is displaced. The wave properties of energy emerge from periodic functions, where Read More
Akk_b_unique wrote: Using magic and psi together… Till where I know magic is about controlling energy externally through candles, crystals, incense sticks etc (although I have never done it) and psionic is controlling energy through ur mind alone. So is there any way to use them together like using crystals to amplify ur precision in tedious task like remote viewing or psychokinesis I wrote: The crystalline structures we empirically know interact with psychic fields are organic compounds, such as what comprises your brain. Systems of carbon structures comprise humans, and humans are psychic. An extrapolation of our organic chemistry is Read More
Modal discourse concerns alternative ways things can be, e.g., what might be true, what isn’t true but could have been, what should be done. This entry focuses on counterfactual modality which concerns what is not, but could or would have been.

In fiction and fantasy, magical characters can shape magical forces into constructs of physical forces. For example, Raven from DC Comics can create constructs from the dark energy of her soul form, Constantine can throw fireballs, and Zatanna can summon swords. Evocation in the Dresden Files specifically refers to conjuring blasts of fire, shields of air, and other forms of magical constructs that are physical things. When trying to give physicality to a magical or psychic construct, many people are unable to get it to physically interact with anything, and based on that lack of interaction, some people conclude that Read More
People frequently ask about the nature of magic, subtle energy, or psychic phenomena within occult and paranormal groups. Many paranormal communities, cultures, and pedagogies attempt to answer that question from the pragmatics and cultural frameworks of their respective paradigms. 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 many communities, a belief that cultural traditions predicate magic is so prevalent that many people in magical and occult communities expect people to practice some form of magic derived Read More
Chaos I: Motion and Determinism
The start of Chaos, with one of the foremost ideas of philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesis, who lived in the sixth century B.C. Creatures develop eternally, things have no substance and everything is always on the move: everything becomes everything, everything is everything. The first minutes of the film illustrate this idea with some everyday examples, as well as some mathematical ones.
