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. Kastrup says that Materialism has it all wrong, which will probably not come as shocking news Read More …

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. The problem Read More …

It’s Happening! – Magick Works!

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 Read More …

On the lack of a Magickal Origin Story

Gordon White’s new book came out early in the digital world and I have since read it twice (and now bought it three times – what can I say, I’m a fan). There isn’t going to be a full review this time or anything like my post I did for Star.Ships, as I really don’t like doing reviews. There is always a voice in the back of my head that reminds me of my complete lack of right to judge other people’s creativity as good or bad. So instead, I will just say that I really enjoyed it, so much I Read More …
