Magic Can’t Bring Autonomy

Magical or psychic influence in politics is intrinsically corrupt and violent. I have been disappointed with the recent integration of magic, occultism, and paranormal phenomena with political propaganda. Left-leaning political groups and progressive forms of occultism claim they use magic to combat alt-right ideology, disparity, corruption, and inequality. Attempting to use magical forces to do this is hypocritical and corrupt. Many people confuse the emotions of jealousy, envy, anger, and hatred. Jealousy is an emotion tied to feeling insecure and that you will lose something. For example, a friend might be jealous of their friend’s boyfriend because they feel like Read More


Psychic Energy & Psychic Fields

When people ask how to get started with many paranormal, psychic, or magical arts, many people usually recommend developing sensitivity to some concept of energy. Many energy work and energy healing practices, psionics, and popular ideas in occultism concerning influence are metaphysical cognates of animism and vitalism. Specifically, many ideas involved in many paradigms of “energy work” and “energy manipulation” are cognates of Mesmerism and Spiritualism. A vital, animistic force metaphysically corresponds to an ethereal entity called the spirit or other forms of anima. This vitalistic force is called qi, ki, chi, spirit, the ethereal body, ethereal energy, or just Read More


Psychic Energy, Consciousness, and Will

…In a generalized sense, energy is an abstraction of the orientation of a system in a vector space and the magnitude required to displace something from its reference frame. For example, rotation around a unit circle provides periodic functions. In the sense of displacement, energy is a differential. You are not using an energy model, because energy models are systems of differentials, periodic functions, and harmonics. You are using a sci-fi plot device. In the sense of Physics, physical energy is a property of sinusoidal waves. Specifically, energy is associated with wavelength. Valid models have consistent definitions and a theory, Read More


Gods and Robots: Myths, Machines, and Ancient Dreams of Technology

In this compelling, richly illustrated book, Adrienne Mayor tells the fascinating story of how ancient Greek, Roman, Indian, and Chinese myths envisioned artificial life, automata, self-moving devices, and human enhancements―and how these visions relate to and reflect the ancient invention of real animated machines.



Demonic and Angelic Qualities of Humanity

Humans can exemplify instances of angelic qualities and demonic qualities. An apple is red, so an apple is an instance of an exemplification of redness. Red crayons also exemplify redness, but an apple is an apple and a crayon a crayon. Yes, angelic humans I.e. priests ask for directions. Angels and demons walk among us in the form of humans. We just call it a miracle when a priest does something and magic when a sorcerer does it. Because angelic and demonic presence manifests through qualities of humanity, demonic or angelic presence is inherent in subtle human behaviors. We consider Read More


Demoniality or Incubi and Succubi, Malleus Maleficarum, and Cambions

When I bring up the subject of cambions, demonality, and the fact that Merlin is considered mythologically as someone whose magic came from being the child of an incubus, there seems to be controversy in various online occult and paranormal communities. Especially since cambions and nephilim show up frequently in fiction. In the classical work Demoniality or Incubi and Succubi, there is a list of historical figures the Catholic clergy considered to be the scion of demons: 30. Now, it is undoubted by Theologians and philosophers that carnal intercourse between mankind and the Demon sometimes gives birth to human beings; Read More


About Psi Balls

Psi balls, and all psionic constructs, are imaginary unless correlated with a real entity outside your mind. That correlation is a change, so you can determine if your imagined construct has a real influence by looking at changes in things that are not your mind. For example, if you intend to shift temperature or influence something, it should do work. Technically, psi balls are unrealistic conceptual abstractions that can model real influences. There is technically no ball of psychic energy between your hands because energy is an abstraction for how objects can change. My recommendation is to loop back veridical Read More


Is Magic Psionics?

BunnyGunz wrote: …Some would consider magic as an extension/expansion of psionics or energy workk/manipulation in general, using various tools and modalities depending on discipline/school. 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


Occult Crystals, Occult Metals, and Psionics

Akk_b_unique wrote: Using magic and psi together… Till where I know magic is about controlling energy externally through candles, crystals, incense sticks etc (although I have never done it) and psionic is controlling energy through ur mind alone. So is there any way to use them together like using crystals to amplify ur precision in tedious task like remote viewing or psychokinesis I wrote: The crystalline structures we empirically know interact with psychic fields are organic compounds, such as what comprises your brain. Systems of carbon structures comprise humans, and humans are psychic. An extrapolation of our organic chemistry is 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

The Mathematical Structure of Integrated Information Theory

Integrated Information Theory is one of the leading models of consciousness. It aims to describe both the quality and quantity of the conscious experience of a physical system, such as the brain, in a particular state. In this contribution, we propound the mathematical structure of the theory, separating the essentials from auxiliary formal tools.


Magic and Tacit Knowledge, and Intuition

cyrusmagnus wrote: I’d love to hear your thoughts one day on what you think is the best approach for an absolute beginner to start at. I wrote: A person can gain tacit knowledge, knowledge of how to do magic, from perception of veridical experiences. I can physically balance myself because I take a step and observe I am standing upright. Feedback about my position tells me how to position my body. That real-time feedback that tells me I am still standing is mathematically dynamical and chaotic mind you. Tacit knowledge about how to perform magic is similar to the intuition Read More
