Magical Charisma

Apr 10, 2022 | | Say something

When a public figure is the object of mass derision, he can divert the stream of negative attention to his daemon, away from his biological self. When we loathe an evil character in a film, it does not adversely affect the actor. Instead it augments the magical charisma of the character, empowering its daemon. A show of public hostility to a politician can likewise augment his charisma if he knows how to protect himself.

Conversely when we idolize a pop star, we are pouring our vital attention towards his stage persona. An artist will commonly use a pseudonym so that when attention is directed at his art, this daemon or alter-ego becomes the beneficiary.
