Re: Metaphysically understanding the destruction of people

Seems this is about aspirations vs. reality. No detailed plan survives first contact with the enemy. If anyone wants to get out the seppuku knife over that, then they're just conserving oxygen for realists. Sometimes the universe beats you, and you let it slide. Sometimes the universe gives you a br...

Re: What do we need MORE of in the occult community?

Realism and Experience I do also like the suggestion that understanding psychology is important. Gnothi Seauton, know thee thyself.... need I say more? I might also add that a firm grasp of logical thinking, and lateral thinking skills, are both immensely useful. but realism and experience are the m...

Re: Synthetic Objectivity

100% objectivity is a fantasy, at least it is this side of divine infinite consciousness. that said, i'm a fan of objectivity, insomuch as we can channel it. though I'm realistic about just how objective we can be, which in itself is a kind of meta-objectivity. as for manifesting wounds... hard to s...

Re: The TRUE and HONEST definition of the LHP

RHP/LHP are based on religious ideologies, and a background believe in some black & white universal morality which is absurd. in simplest terms, one is reliant on traditional paradigmatic framing, and external factors. while the other is more self reliant, and paradigmatically explorative. instead o...

Interestingly, people will see objects as different colors based on an "impression" of the color of the lighting and it's effects.

Re: Intruded mind, heart, body.

"perception" does not require doing anything TO you per se. The only thing being done TO you, is comments which let you know you've been observed. In this sense, it's harmless aside from the privacy concern. That said, there are likely some connections... If you break off all communication with this...

Re: Isn't there any real black magic?

Erzabet Bathory did some pretty classically graphic dark magick. Although things didn't go that well for her in the end. I guess most define 'unhealthy' magick as any which involves truly harmful things in it's ritual, or in it's effect (or both). I think Bathory's murdering of 600-700 people was so...

Nope, nothing really matters a whole lot. Even the idea of something 'mattering' is a "beholder's viewpoint" sort of idea, it's placing value or the lack thereof on things which *really* have no value, until we make it so by way of audience. I did draw the attention of an infinite consciousness, som...

short answer: "all the way down" long answer: actually the long answer would be about a hundred lengthy discussions focusing on the deconstruction of the paradigms which your human experience has impaled your psyche with.

Defining love would be enormously problematic. I'd argue that the term really describes about a dozen or more wildly different emotions. Most of which are delusional or ill advised.
