## Psychic Energy, Networks, Circuits, and Sigils

This post was my response to someone who attempted to sketch out on graphing paper a system of sigils intended to manipulate mental or psychic energy. They were attempting to code and program with sigils. I wrote: It looks like you attempted to create a psychic circuit or cycle. It is very clumsy…Before I start, it is crucial that you correctly understand what circuits are. A circuit is: Traversing a graph such that not an edge is repeated but vertex can be repeated and it is closed also i.e. it is a closed trail. The second thing you should understand Read More

## Generic Elemental Binding Seal

## Physical Evocation

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

## Times Table 91 Mod 200

## Times Table 73 Mod 200

A generic graph created from the 73 times table in mod 200. It can be used for magical seals and talismans.

## Times Table 21 Mod 200

## Mod 10 Stellation

## 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

## Occult Shapes, Symbols, and Magical Energy

vronox wrote: I’ve always wondered about the importance of shapes in certain symbols like for example if the second pentacle of mercury has to be enclosed by a circle or could it be something like below: Would it even work? Does shape of rhombus change anything? I know it’s a stupid question but I’m just corious to what extent can you modify those symbols. I wrote: Shapes are derived from vectors and postulates, so a different shape is a different formula and vectors and thus different rays of different angles. Intuitively, think about how the shape of a mirror changes Read More

## Elegant Thaumaturgy

An arbitrary and random collection of symbols is not enough to create a consistent magical system. An issue with creating a magical system from random symbols is that there is no formal ontological framework. Consistent magical ontological frameworks can emerge from magical languages, and people can create magical languages through ordered and logical methods. A magical system is an abstraction comprised of a tuple of symbols and strings. Those strings encapsulate magical sigils, axioms, rules, and operations that relate sigils and entities. In classical, western, occult “magical systems”, there are formally articulated sets of axioms and rules. The dilemma of 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

## Are Prime Numbers Made Up?

Is math real or simply something made up by mathematicians? You can’t physically touch a number yet using numbers we’re able to build skyscrapers and launch rockets into space.

## 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.

## The Geometry of SET

In the card game SET, what is the maximum number of cards you can deal that might not contain a SET?
