Some may consider magic itself as a subset within Psionics as a whole, adjacent perhaps to something like Reiki… I wrote: …how you guys abuse the word “energy” drives me bonkers. Energy is a scalar that describes the degree of how one variable, thing, object, category, and symbol can rotate in a vector space with respect to a frame of reference such that something is displaced. The wave properties of energy emerge from periodic functions, where Read More

## Global Shifts in Psychic Energy and Psychic Fields

witty_dullness wrote: Everyone is mentioning an energetic shift or cosmic occurrence happening in Oct/Nov. Can someone tell me what’s up? I wrote: Psychic energy is an abstraction of consciousness (astral energy is a confluence of reliable, frequent events and cycles; like the seasons), so any cultural shifts or differences among cohorts can shift energy. Any group of people that experiences or thinks about the same events will create fluxes. Dean Radin, in particular, studied this. A field of consciousness is an abstraction of this model. The Global Consciousness Project is a project intended to gather empirical and experimental data on Read More

## Magical Energy, Sigils, and Magic Circles

snail-lad wrote: I’m proficient with multiple forms of sigil making but I’ve recently seen something called a spell circle. All my research leads me to casting a circle which Isn’t what I’m looking for. Can anyone help me out? I wrote: Magic circles denote domains of authority, influence and power, or to serve as a denotation of transitions of experience. The purpose of magical circles and triangles in many Victorian grimoires is to function like licenses, degrees, or police badges regarding evoked and restrained entities. It is symbolic of something intrinsically and implicitly there, because whatever is extensional of you Read More

## Western mysticism is closer to Dungeons and Dragons Than You Would Think

I wrote: Fantasy magic and “real” magic are closer than you think. Mathematically speaking, the Kabbalic tree of life is a tree in the same sense as a perk tree in Skyrim where the ontological basis doesn’t necessarily have to describe a vector of reality for prima facie, they are just “empty symbols” where they are given semantic meaning. To say it a different way, you can algorithmically traverse the tree of life whether or not you believe it to be real, so you can deduce that the relations are consistent and formulas derived from those relations are true regardless Read More

## Conservation Laws and Magical and Psychic Energy

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 to a temporal translation invariance, as described in Noether’s theorem and via 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. If it is not physical, it would not be temporal, and if it is not temporal, it is not Read More

## Dissecting Hypercubes with Pascal’s Triangle

What does the inside of a tesseract look like? Pascal’s Triangle can tell us.

## Modern Physics with Numerical Methods

This is an open-source, modern physics textbook typically for the third semester students majoring in engineering, physics or chemistry. An emphasis is placed on fundamental principles as well as numerical solutions to equations where no analytical solutions exist. The content begins with optics and uses that as a stepping stone to wave phenomena and quantum systems.

## 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

## The Geometry of Causality

In this episode we dive deeper into the relationship between space and time and explore how we can geometrically map the causality of the universe and increase our understanding of how time and distance relate to one another.

## Understanding the Uncertainty Principle with Quantum Fourier Series

But this intuitive, mechanical reality is emergent from underlying reality in which the particles that form matter arise from of the combination of an infinity of possible properties. And forget matter – the vacuum itself is the sum of infinite possible particles. If we fully unravel this idea we’ll be on the verge of tackling things like Hawking radiation. But as you’ll see today, in that unraveling we are led, unavoidably, to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.

## OpenStax: Algebra and Trigonometry

Algebra and Trigonometry provides a comprehensive exploration of algebraic principles and meets scope and sequence requirements for a typical introductory algebra and trigonometry course. The modular approach and the richness of content ensure that the book meets the needs of a variety of courses. Algebra and Trigonometry offers a wealth of examples with detailed, conceptual explanations, building a strong foundation in the material before asking students to apply what they’ve learned.
