Occultism

Oh! It’s Magic!

Posted on

There’s been some recent controversy in various blogs over the legitimacy of occultism and magic that was mainly fueled by Miguel Conner’s article. His argument, inspired by Alan Moore’s disjointed, caustic and adjective-riddled up-the-ying-yang piece of polemic called “Fossil Angels” is that modern occultism has fallen (or conceived in to be more accurate) into the mire of Dungeons & Dragons (no disrespect to D&D players) kind of phoney baloney. This kind of occultism has fallen into rank mediocrity and bourgeois, narcissistic materialism rather than containing any […]

Heaven & Hell

 “Every one who has ever built anywhere a “new heaven” first found the power thereto in his own hell.” – Nietzsche, The Genealogy of Morals. *** “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” – Siddhartha Gautama. *** ‎”He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.” “The road of excess leads to the palace of […]

“The Rich Gettin’ Richer, The Poor Gettin’ Poorer.”

“They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery.” – Some Bearded Fat Guy from They Live! I recently re-watched the campy cult classic They Live! the other day. In the movie, an unemployed George Nada (Roddy Pipper) travels to Los Angeles during an economic depression, looking for work and happens to stumble upon a small, covert fifth-column type of […]

The Chimera Androgyne: The Esoteric Mystique of Baphomet and Abraxas (Part 2)

Posted on

Part II. Abraxas The ancient image of the Mithraic lion-headed serpent is first found at the start of the Christian-era who is sometimes depicted as crowned or surrounded by a halo or streaming rays indicating its inherent solar and magical nature. This image is called a Khnoubis or Chnoubis, carved on old gems and amulets. Hebraic names such as “IAO”, “Adonai”, “Sabaoth” and the Gnostic corruption of “Ialdaboath” are also found on these gems for superstitious purposes. Chnoubis was […]

The Chimera Androgyne: The Esoteric Mystique of Baphomet and Abraxas

Posted on

Part I.  In ancient and modern esoteric literature and occultism, Baphomet possesses a great importance among occult practitioners. From its inception from Templar idol lore to the English Magi of Eliphas Levi and Aleister Crowley’s revision and integration into their religious philosophies (such as Crowley’s Thelema), Baphomet has become a virtual mascot for the occult arts. I will not go too deeply into the long and dry history of the archetype (only very briefly), but […]

Justice For Caylee?

Posted on

So today is the day that the jury in the much publicized Casey Anthony case declared “Not Guilty” to all charges of murder except for providing false information to law enforcement. For all those who have been following this case since the beginning: I have regained my faith in the American Legal System. Why? You might say something to the effect of: “BREAKING NEWS FLORIDA LEGALIZED MURDER, LOLZ!1!” or “OMFG! I’M SHOCKED! JUSTICE IN AMERICA CASEY […]

Writing In Blood

Posted on

In Chapter 7, “Reading and Writing,” of Thus Spake Zarathustra, Nietzsche writes: “Of all that is written, I love only what a person hath written with his blood. Write with blood, and thou wilt find that blood is spirit. It is no easy task to understand unfamiliar blood; I hate the reading idlers. He who knoweth the reader, doeth nothing more for the reader. Another century of readers—and spirit itself will stink.” The above excerpt affirms […]

Writing, Editing and Jungian Self-Analysis

Posted on

Writing in one form or another has always been a staple in my life. Whether it be writing essays, articles, short stories, novels and even poetry, there’s always been that itch to satisfy that writing impulse. Editing on the other hand is an entirely different story. Editing is by far a strenuous and time-consuming process. Editing one’s work is about looking at your own work with a critical eye and accepting that it isn’t perfect. If […]

A New Aeon

Posted on

Hello! I have many different interests. The major ones I consider like philosophy, religion, occultism, history, fortean/conspiracy, fiction writing, consciousness material and various strings of knowledge to be a part of my day-to-day life. Various religious and philosophical schools of thought run behind the operating activity of my mind. Sometimes I am working on three separate projects at one time-so that doesn’t help keep the focus where I should be at. This space won’t be entirely about these aforementioned subjects–simply put, […]
