Re: Discussion on Thelema: RHP or LHP? I'd say it's mostly RHP. The idea of every man and woman is a star, is indeed quite LHP, but Crowley's central philosophy was that each person needed to first gain the knowledge and conversation of his HGA, and then work with that HGA to cross the abyss and annihilate the ego. To me that's as RHP as it gets.

I think as a person Crowley was quite confused, and himself was partially LHP and partially RHP, which I think is reflected in Thelema.

Re: Discussion on Thelema: RHP or LHP?
If he pursues the will of his parents, he is following the RHP, following the will of others

This makes the LHP seem like a very Western ideology, which is probably the case anyhow. Many Eastern ideologies, such as Buddhism and Confucianism, seem to place the individual desire below that of the group.
Confucianism is very RHP, imo, and is very much concerned with groups over individuals.  With Buddhism, you want to be able to resist Maara, which can be likened to a collective egregore that propagates the cultural nomos (wiki link for nomos that can overcome an individual's mind, aka--antinomianism.

Re: Forum Added a bookmark system (use the "Add Bookmark" button), and you can now tag other users like: [member=2]Onyx[/member].

Also, posting takes you back to the topic you just contributed to, instead of taking you back to the main overview, which I found pretty annoying.

Heidegger and the concept of "Being". So, I've started reading Heidegger and his conclusions sound quite similar to that proposed by Jung. Heidegger basically states that "Being" consists of various entities that manifest within the self. He also talks about the concept of "Dasein" in that "Dasein" is the inherent entity (or self) trying to better understand it's own "being". He also talks about the importance of authenticity in that the concept of "phenomenon" is the entity within the self showing it's true character through authenticity. When a part of the self (or "Being") is being covered up it manifests itself through various "symptoms" which can come in the form of sickness or in-authenticity. I may be misreading his work but in my humble opinion this sounds like a very Luciferian way of looking at the world in the sense that through introspection and investigation of "Being" one can reach a state of true authenticity which results in greater happiness and self empowerment.

Re: Consciousness as the Field that Connects Brain to Form I think that makes sense. We have our instinctual driven, pre-programmed Lesser Mind, our Conscious Mind, and our Greater Mind, or highest representation of the self. Obviously, sentience is intermediate between the two, that is pretty much given, but it seems like in the physical world (Midgard in my system of theology), is navigable simply by our instincts. Our drive to eat, stay alive, and procreate is sufficient. However, in order to connect our mind to the spiritual, we need consciousness.

Re: Consciousness as the Field that Connects Brain to Form I knew Dr. Burr/Dr. Ravitz sounded familiar.. the book "Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain" (p. 74-77) mentions their work in relation to Soviet psychokinesis research.

This describes in detail the apparatus used to measure the tiny voltages involved:

Re: The Comprehensive Argument for Set The Theory of Forms makes a lot of sense to me now. For example, let's say that our force of consciousness stems from an undefined source and radiates outward. Therefore, it is constantly being replaced by new energy. Even though the material energy is not the same, the "force" is consistently the same by virtue of character being the same. That is sort of where the term "essence" comes in. The essence is the nature seperated from the material.

I think that Set does fit as a personification of the giver of the Black Flame, however, I believe that this applies to many other gods, especially Odin, as well as other proto-Satanic gods such as Ea. I use Odin as the official name, however, "Satan" and "Set" can be used as titles in alternate contexts, e.g a dedication ritual.

Re: Consciousness as the Field that Connects Brain to Form Beside it being self-evident, It is nice to see a vast collection of empirical evidence that suggests the primacy and subsistence of consciousness.

I would like to highlight one such spokesman, Dr. Bernardo Kastrup (http://www.bernardokastrup.com/p/about.html?m=1). I have been perusing his works since I read Brief Peeks Beyond. The idea of monistic idealism seemed quite curious and somewhat counter-culture. But by the end of it, I was convinced that physicalism or materialism was not an adequate position to solving the "mind-body problem" either so idealism was as equally or more valid.

One of his works that is freely available sums up his philosophy succinctly to the appeasement of academics:
