Re: No Theory in Magic

Looking back over these posts, I realise that we are not discussing, just arguing. And we're not even arguing about the important parts. So I think I'll leave it there.

Re: No Theory in Magic

To start with, you've completely misread what I said. I said NOT getting from Newton to Einstein, but reducing Einstein down to Newron. I'll reply to the rest when I can read this on something bigger than my phone, since this site is blocked at work.

Re: No Theory in Magic

The words theories and models are not interchangeable. That's why I said when people talk about theories, they really mean models. I think the best definition of magic is Crowley's: "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will" to which he added "...so this therefore incl...

I think the best definition of magic is Crowley's: "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will" to which he added "...so this therefore includes tax collecting and potato farming". :-) i.e. magic contains the "magical" as well as the mundane, in a similar metaphor to sayi...

Re: Transtemporal Physics

Ok, I think I understand just enough of what you are saying to reply :-) I wasn't specific enough. When I said "timeless universe" I didn't mean a universe without time - that would (as you quite rightly say) be nonsense. I meant that there is no *passage of time*; no dynamics. There is a body of wo...

Re: how does magick work

Magic is the ability to willfully go against mechanistic nature. Human beings have this Gift, but most are not taught to use it properly. You don't go against nature, you exploit nature, by exploiting a loophole of normal human consciousness. You are right that everyone has it, and you have to be t...

Re: Do tattoos and piercings attract demons?

Hello, I keep hearing that tattoos and piercings would attract demons due to making holes in the body. In shamanism they even warn you about receiving surgery because demons would take advantage of your body being cut open to "enter" inside. This is a concept that I've always thought to be strange ...

Re: Doing rituals for something that already happened?

Simultaneous time doesn't contradict free will, it just holds that you only take one path in the end no matter how freely you take it. Absolutely this. It is however possible (like the praying example) to do magic for things that happened in the past which you *do not know the outcome for in the pr...

Re: Is synchronicity explained in occult literature?

Magic is the engineering of coincidence. Synchronicity is spontaneous magic. My research leads me to theorise that the thing that we call magic is (in programming terms) an 'edge case' of normal human consciousness. Normally we affect the world by making decisions and acting them out. Magical action...

Re: Doubts about Tarot?

Almost all forms of divination follow the same pattern; select randomly from a set of things, each of which has a predetermined representation. Optionally, you arrange the results in a pattern, allowing you to draw further meaning from it. The Tarot has a particularly rich set of representations and...

Re: Transtemporal Physics

The question you should be considering is "What do we live inside?", the answer is "Existence as a Concept and Magick can edit any concept" I'm trying to figure out how to elasborate on that. Yeah, but unless it purely involves your mental state, you aren't going to be able to edit it immediately. ...

Having read some of your other posts, I'm afraid most of it looks like complete gibberish. Still - if you want to talk about transcending time, then a good place to start in science is the Wheeler DeWitt equation. What this basically says is that when you combine quantum physics and relativity (some...

Re: A new way to charge sigils?

I saw a new way of graffiti the other day. You find a wall or paving stone or whatever and you place your stencil and then you *clean* over the stencil with bleach or such. If you pick a sufficiently dirty wall, it can work quite well.
