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



Magic Always Has a Price

Debates around morality and ethics are frequent discussions in occult and magical communities. These arguments are so common that some occult communities forbid arguments and discourse on magic that appears to violate a person’s agency. Some rules ban working magic on someone without their consent, albeit it is unenforceable strictly from the perspective of being a rule of a platform. Enfolded into these conversations is whether magic has rules or if karma exists. Examples are arguments about whether people should or should not use magic to curse people or influence people such as to coerce or negate their ability to Read More


Oxford Mathematician explains SIR Travelling Wave disease model for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The SIR model is one of the simplest ways to understand the spread of a disease such as COVID-19 (Coronavirus) through a population. Allowing the movement of populations makes the model slightly more realistic and results in ‘Travelling Wave’ solutions.

The SIR model is one of the simplest disease models we have to explain the spread of a virus through a population.

Discrete Math, Digital Art, and Grimoires

I was just curious if any of you have a program or app that you use for creating your own digital grimoires? I’m looking for compatability with my phone (LG V40), exportation to PDF if possible and the ability to organize it in traditional book format. I wrote: I use SageMath, Gephi, Ctyoscape, and Python for magical ontological formulas and graphs. For the Math heavy Read More


Cytoscape

Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization. Cytoscape core distribution provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization.


Conjuring Magical Crystals

Commonly, people conceptualize subtle energies as ephemeral, ethereal, and intangible quintessential entities. That assumption means that those entities have no solid substance that we can hold. Various ideas about magic propose that quintessential entities facilitate magical operations and applications such as enchantments. Manipulation of quintessential entities is an intuitive, easy, and common method of augmenting an object’s attributes. A common technique is to anchor, imprint, or link a quintessential, ethereal construct to the physical object so that the physical object emanates the enchantment’s properties. That method of enchantment is like painting or gilding an object. It does not change the Read More

Making Psychic Arts More Reliable: Building Templates

Imagine that you walk into your pitch-black home one night. You cannot find your way around because it is dark, so you reach for the light switch and flip it up, and…nothing happens. The room is still pitch black. Somehow, you make your way to the kitchen faucet because you need to wash your hands. You turn the handle of the spigot, and…no water comes pouring out. You then decide to use your phone to try and call someone or look up what is going on and…no signal. If this was the first time that the power was out, the Read More
