Imposing your Will on your world

I recently took an online lecture with Conner Habib called Radical Undoing: Decolonize Your Mind with Sex, Science, the Occult&Philosophy. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, but there was one element in particular that lit up for me as something I wanted to talk about here. It is the idea of imposing your will on the world. Now, before we go further, I guess I should explain why I mean when I say “imposing your will on the world”, as it is maybe slightly different from what Conner means, and I will hazard a guess that it is probably different from what you currently think I Read More …

Magick, Facebook and I

A recent conversation about social media with my wife led to some interesting insights about my friends list on Facebook. My wife was saying that she was sick of people on social media always going on about how great their lives are and all the wonderful things that are happening all the time to them. She said it isn’t a jealousy thing, she loves hearing good news from people, what annoys her is that she doesn’t believe it’s true. My response was that the vast majority of my social media timeline is filled with people talking about how shit everything is Read More …

Stealing Magick from the Simulation Hypothesis

I spent a lot of time last year thinking about the Simulation hypothesis of Existence and what it would actually mean to my day to day life if it was actually true. This led to a number of interesting ideas and thoughts, which in turn lead to some helpful techniques to make my life better. IT ALL STARTED A MINUTE AGO A great thought that came to me when hanging out with The Simulation Theory is that the sim could have started at any stage or at any time. It could have just started a minuted ago, and we all Read More …

LIFE: Weight loss for the Soul

Happy New Year everyone, I hope this year is your best one yet! One of the things that I have been working on over the last number of years is becoming more healthy – particularly I want to lose weight and I am bringing a renewed sense of determination to it going into this new year. For most of my life I have been overweight, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, but it has always been an issue with me. Since I gave up nicotine I have put on a further two stone or so. It has become a constant companion Read More …
