…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
…The Veritas Society (called vsociety), before it was taken down, differentiated between Psi and Chi as well:… The Psion Guild, which specialized in Psi and the differences between it and other energies, also are of the opinion that Psi and Qi are two types of energies that originate within the human body, but aren’t the same:.. A reason those sites are defunct is that a lot of the information was wrong, and site owners could not maintain it with current information because of lack of academic expertise. XIII is having a hard time editing the content to relevant material as Read More
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
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
Mathematician Ludwig Schläfli talks about objects that live in the fourth dimension…
M.C. Escher talks about the adventures of two-dimensional creatures trying to imagine what three-dimensional objects look like.
Hipparchus explains how two numbers can describe the position of a point on a sphere.
He then explains stereographic projection: how can one draw a picture of the Earth on a piece of paper?
In fiction and fantasy, magical characters can shape magical forces into constructs of physical forces. For example, Raven from DC Comics can create constructs from the dark energy of her soul form, Constantine can throw fireballs, and Zatanna can summon swords. Evocation in the Dresden Files specifically refers to conjuring blasts of fire, shields of air, and other forms of magical constructs that are physical things. When trying to give physicality to a magical or psychic construct, many people are unable to get it to physically interact with anything, and based on that lack of interaction, some people conclude that Read More
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
First, an old idea by Henri Poincaré (1854-1912): when studying a vector field in space, we can sometimes find a small disc that the trajectories hit repeatedly. Studying the points on the disc where the trajectories pass through is often a lot simpler than studying the vector field as a whole. We go from dynamics in continuous time to dynamics in discrete time.

It seems like a lot of people practice Theurgy – Enochian magic, under the impression that’s what John Dee meant by Thaumaturgy. He was referencing the idea of the archetypal “black box” where a mechanism abstractly does something Read More
Physicists have been struggling for some time to figure out why our universe is so comfy. Why, for example, are the fundamental constants – like the mass of the electron or the strength of the forces – just right for the emergence of life? Tweak them too much and life, stars, galaxies, the universe as we know it wouldn’t exist.
