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
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
This article describes some recent experimental and theoretical work in China, including successful attempts to train ESP abilities in blind children. It has been contributed by Professor Yi-Fang Chang, a physicist at China’s Yumman University.
How to predict and model the spread of epidemics.
A generic graph created from the 91 times table in mod 200. It can be used for magical seals and talismans.
A generic graph created from the 73 times table in mod 200. It can be used for magical seals and talismans.
A generic graph created from the 21 times table in mod 200. It can be used for magical seals and talismans.
A generic graph from a mod 10 stellation algorithm. It can be used for magical seals and talismans.
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
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.
This video covers a range of what shapes and properties you’d encounter in higher dimensions.
An arbitrary and random collection of symbols is not enough to create a consistent magical system. An issue with creating a magical system from random symbols is that there is no formal ontological framework. Consistent magical ontological frameworks can emerge from magical languages, and people can create magical languages through ordered and logical methods. A magical system is an abstraction comprised of a tuple of symbols and strings. Those strings encapsulate magical sigils, axioms, rules, and operations that relate sigils and entities. In classical, western, occult “magical systems”, there are formally articulated sets of axioms and rules. The dilemma of Read More
Throughout much of human history, people consciously and intentionally produced randomness. They frequently used dice – or dice-shaped animal bones and other random objects – to gamble, for entertainment, predict the future and communicate with deities. Despite all this engagement with controlled random processes, people didn’t really think of probability in mathematical terms prior to 1600.
Gephi is an open-source software for network visualization and analysis. It helps data analysts to intuitively reveal patterns and trends, highlight outliers and tells stories with their data. It uses a 3D render engine to display large graphs in real-time and to speed up the exploration. Gephi combines built-in functionalities and flexible architecture to: explore, analyze, spatialize, filter, cluster, manipulate, export. Gephi is based on a visualize-and-manipulate paradigm which allow any user to discover networks and data properties. Moreover, it is designed to follow the chain of a case study, from data file to nice printable maps.
