Pearls before Swine

Feb 21, 2020 | | Say something

If we consider that sorcery is the means of effecting change through the application of will, then there are many acts of collective sorcery that pass unnoticed on account of their being so pervasive. Any paradigm or framework of perception is in essence a mass agreement; and it assimilates everyone under its wing. Dialectic argument […more]

Rise of The Automaton

Oct 23, 2019 | | Say something

When one looks close enough, one can see sorcery (or magick) in every aspect of life. It is not necessary to join a coven or a cult to become initiated into sorcery. As with most wheeling and dealings in life, if one can do something by oneself then it is the most rewarding; and at […more]

Face Behind The Mask

Jun 4, 2019 | | Say something

If we consider that a fictional entity such as a daemon or egregore can become self intelligent through the process of sustained attention then we could extend this to the idea of the self. The persona or mask, the idea one has of oneself, is likewise a thought form that develops autonomous intelligence from the […more]

A Fictional Reality

May 17, 2019 | | Say something

Science and religion are both based on the idea of absolute truth; and in their zealous pursuit of purity they reject the lie in favor of this truth. The scientific method separates out the truth from the lie, that it calls falsehood; the latter carrying a less despicable connotation than the lie. Whereas in art, […more]

The Shadow

The world is in balance. To light a candle is to cast a shadow. ~ Ursula Le Guin In the study of ethics, a system of morality – discerning between good or bad – is established. This system must be objective and universal for it to be of any practical use. Objective because it must […more]

The field of science could be defined as the study of cause and effect, so that for a known cause the effect becomes predictable. Alternatively a given effect might be traced back to its cause. So then, what exactly is cause and effect? On one hand, cause and effect might be considered as isolated events; […more]

A Double Edged Sword

Aug 11, 2018 | | Say something

We have already seen in Cart Before The Horse that there are two valid and yet incompatible definitions of Truth: 1. that which is correct; 2. that which exists (or ‘what is’). They are incompatible because, for example, a Lie is incorrect and yet it does exist. Those who are Type 1’s automatically create their […more]

Emergence of The Taboo

Aug 9, 2018 | | Say something

There are some things that are definitely and objectively wrong. For example, rape is ‘wrong’ because there is logical consistency in its ‘wrongness’. If there are two people in a room, neither wish to be raped, so the only satisfactory outcome for both parties is that neither is raped by the other. The fact one […more]

The Beggar and The Thief

Mar 25, 2018 | | Say something

Human action is a most challenging topic for it must address the question why some people are poor and others are not; and why some people are happier than others. And whether there is any relation between these two. Economics and politics are necessarily contributors to all this, as well as a need for security […more]

The Immeasurable

Jan 20, 2018 | | Say something

It can be, and it has been, proven that there exist immutable natural laws by which the universe functions. This is logos. The planetary logos presides over the seasons, the weather cycles, the precession of the equinoxes, etc. The logos also relates to logic that connects input with output, or premise with rhetoric. Logic is […more]
