Astral Crystals of the Sun

Astral magic is sort of not my thing, typically, but I decided to mess around with it for today. For those that practice ceremonial magic, more than likely, the sigils that you are using are derived from Agrippa’s magic squares laid out in Three Books Concerning Occult Philosophy. Each astral – planetary body, gets a magic square. Because, well, I am a Leo, I decided to play around with the Sol square. So, these are some crystals that I got from using equivalence relations of the equivalence classes that came from using each number in the first row. I then Read More

Make Your Own Magical Rules

When people go about making their own magical “systems”, there tend to be two popular routes they take: making their own magical language or creating random sigils. The problem, though, is that those two popular methods alone technically don’t create a magical system. A magical system is a collection of classes and rules for those classes. If you were to look at classical and historical “magical systems”, you will see a formally articulated set of metaphysics and rules. This is especially clear if you look at Western occultism. The problem with creating your own magical language is that it only Read More

Marvel and DC Styled Magic Binding Rings

I am a big consumer of science fiction and fantasy, and like all big sci-fi/fantasy geeks, I am into Marvel and DC. Psionic characters were okay to me, but they didn’t interest me too much. Besides the Darkover series written by Marion Zimmer Bradley, psionic characters don’t really pull me in. I am a big fan of the sorcerers of DC like Zatanna and Constantine. When it comes to Marvel, I am a big fan of Doctor Strange. In fact, DC has an animated movie called Justice League Dark and Doctor Strange has his own movie and own presence in Read More

Harmonically Bridging The Future

My fiancé is a genius! He used his intuitive knowledge as a singer to help me figure out how to make manipulation of reality through manipulation of probable futures consistent. Temporal histories and probabilities are basically a set of harmonics, according to Physics. Time is less like a line and more like a collection of superimposed sinusoidal waves. You can see this if you look at how you can use Fourier Transformation (FT) to turn instances of time-dependent objects into frequency spectrums. Since the intervals of edges of concepts are “like” time in a lot of ways, you can apply Read More

Talisman of Focusing Rings Conceptual Fields, Atomic Concepts, and Energy Flow

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. Since this is also a Read More

Telling Time on a Torus

What shape do you most associate with a standard analog clock? Your reflex answer might be a circle, but a more natural answer is actually a torus. Surprised? Then stick around.

Times Tables, Mandelbrot and the Heart of Mathematics

The good old times tables lead a very exciting secret life involving the infamous Mandelbrot set, the ubiquitous cardioid and a myriad of hidden beautiful patterns. Time for the Mathologer to go on a serious fact-finding mission.
