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


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


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


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


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


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


How to Control People’s Minds

Below is my response to a question someone asked on a forum about psychic mind control. Since this is such a common question, I decided to curate my explanation of how to it could be done. Yes, it is possible for someone to take control of your brain. Because of the moral and ethical contexts around that along with the fear it conjures up in people’s heads, it is normally hard to get a straight response if you asks people or go looking for how to do it. I don’t believe in censorship, so if you asks me how to Read More


Psychic Objects Don’t Dissipate and Psychic Energy is not Conserved

The energy associated with psychic activity is not conserved and does not dissipate. I can hear people’s heads exploding as they read those sentences. Typically when I say things like that, a lot people reject the idea; however, they tend to reject the idea because it seems too counter-intuitive, does not fit their expectations, does not fit their biases, does not fit their paradigm, and other things of that nature. This statement is accurate when you look at the relationship psi has to entropy, disorder, and information along with its higher-dimensional structure. Entropy and Disorder There are many different ways Read More
