REVIEW: Why Materialism Is Baloney

Over the weekend I finished Bernardo Kastrup‘s book Why Materialism Is Baloney : How True Skeptics Know There Is No Death and Fathom Answers to life, the Universe, and Everything, and I have to say that I really, really enjoyed it. Much like Daniel Ingram’s MTCTB this book feels like a massive game changer in how I view the Universe. Or more correctly, this fits a lot of the sporadic ideas and intuitions I had about how this all works into a nice and well packaged paradigm.

When the Ancestors call for Dinner

Ancestor work and Ancestor Offerings are seen as one of the most valued Magick practices, if not the practice, by many people who’s thoughts and Ideas on Magick I enjoy. Gordon White has a whole section on it in The Chaos Protocols, as does Jason Miller in his Strategic Sorcery course and books, as do many others. It’s cited as an extremely beneficial practice due to your Ancestors probably being the best spirits you can work with. They already have a deep connection to you, are likely to be loving, kind, helpful towards you and would want only good things for you.

It’s Happening! – Magick Works!


So, Sigils have started working massively well for me, which is great as I am trying to properly engage my Magick journey. As always, Gordon is my go to guy for Sigils, and it’s his slightly updated version of a Sigil Magick System in The Chaos Protocols that has been giving me the recent results.

The new version isn’t a huge departure from his Blog Version – it’s still Shoaling and Robofish – but it puts it all more properly in a  Traditional Ritual context. There is a banishing, a Goddess Invocation, a non-masturbatery sigil activation process and a final call to disengage from any Lust of Result. If you want the finer details of the process you’ll have to buy the book for all that, it’s very much worth your money anyway.
