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

Conservation Laws and Magical and Psychic Energy

This is a snippet of a conversation from Reddit: 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 Read More

Constructs Are Inside and Outside Your Head

“Psychic” objects are phenomenal objects. Phenomenal objects are ones that fit our intuitions of what we think about when we think of “mental” things. Broadly, they are things like concepts, intentionality, intuition, attention, awareness, perception, experience, consciousness, etc. A construct is anything that is an intentional arrangement of elements. This means that any thought that you intentionally think about is a construct because it is an intentional arrangement of experiences, intuitions, concepts, and other things of that nature. This implies that whenever you imagine something, you are technically creating a construct. Metaphysically, there is a question of how this construct 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 without formalizing their ontology or they create random sigils. The problem, though, is that those two popular methods alone technically don’t create a magical system. A magical system is an abstraction comprised of a body of axioms, rules, and operations. If you were to look at classical and historical “magical systems”, you will see a formally articulated set of axioms and rules; an example of this is Western occultism. The problem with informally creating your own magical Read More

Magic is a Game

This is a topic a lot of people have been asking me about (I’ve been getting emails like crazy). When I have time, I’ll write a more formal posting, but this is a conversation I had on reddit on this. The conversation has been redacted and cleaned up for clarity and relevancy. I wrote: …I don’t have, nor really believe in, a Great Work. I’m working on an article on this, but, from my perspective, magic is a type of game. Trying to come up with a theory of magic is like trying to come up with a theory of Read More

What is a Psychic Construct?

This is a snippet of a conversation where I define psychic energy: …Any set of concepts and intentions that are extensions of those concepts can be treated as a tree and a tree is a type of graph. In other words, a semantic ontology can be created from a set of concepts where that ontology has a tree and that tree has a graph. Such a graph has an adjacency matrix and that adjacency matrix has a spectrum comprised of the eigenvalues of that matrix. The energy of the graph would be the sum of the absolute values of the Read More

What is Magic?

This is another discussion online that I decided to curate since this question pops up a lot. This one was a discussion I was involved in on Reddit. The original thread can be found here. Karaoglanlar wrote: …It made me wonder if magic is real at all, with real I mean if it is possible to use your willpower to produce supernatural effects. It also made me wonder if all the deities and demons modern occultists describe are real external entities or just part of the practicioner’s psyche which he or she ‘summons’ through psychological exercises. So what I’m wondering Read More

Are Chakras Contrived?

I will get more into the dynamics and technological attributes of magical and psychic constructs in another post. While spending a lot of time in various Discord servers with a mystical, occult, and preternatural themes, I have noticed a similar conversation about chakras, meridians, energy bodies, and other things that extend subtle energy objects keeps showing up. Are they “naturally existing” or are they intentionally created? The answer is it practically doesn’t matter because anything can potentially be argued to be a construct, so it makes no meaningful difference. Here is the interesting thing: a generic construct is simply the Read More

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
