Oh wow :facepalm:. I didn't even see that initial thread. Just thought that was literally the coolest cat I had seen tweeted.

I take this one back.

Although both may be useful, I'd say I would prefer instantiation far more than generalization.

Lovely. I recognize the first movement of this piece from SMT Nocturne whenever the main character enters the Cathedral of Shadows.

Ok. We're still on the first paragraph here and you're TWE. Not a person but a field full of water. The contents of your field (the water) is you. You are very still and quiet.

Then suddenly, something happens. You start moving as ripples. The ripples reverberate everywhere throughout you. You see the ripples themselves exactly for what they are: ripples.

Something else happens. Some parts of you starts to dissociate into whirlpools. The whirlpools in no way threaten you because you see that there is nothing different about the whirlpools. It is made of water around it and circled about to make a vortex and they are much smaller than you and they don't seem to want to gang up on you. You know this because they are in you and inasmuch as they experience you experience that too. You are TWE. So you experience everything. You also notice that between two different whirlpools that they can not experience each other unless they are very close to each other when their boundaries touch or if they connect with each other. In short bursts at any given time they can do this although they see each other. But they can not sustain it continuously as you do.

And you are still TWE. Before we switch over to the perspective of a whirlpool, what questions do you have so far? Mind you that the answer to that question lies within you. And so this back and forth is an act of self-reflection within yourself using everything you have access to at your disposal. Ripples and whirlpools and still waters. All water.

I am using water here as an equivalent to consciousness. I didn't state that explicitly until now.

I like this painting as well. Weirdly enough, I am also reminded of the Shadow of Yharnam from Bloodborne.  :)

General LHP Discussion / Re: LHP Methods of Surviving Terrible Jobs

I am soooooo finished with my job. Luckily I have an interview tomorrow, so hopefully that works out for me. But until then, I'm not sure how to handle work. Hell we've been back 1 day and now I'm taking day 2 off because I just can't lol.

What are some tips for surviving the shitty jobs and days that crawl by? I'm locked in a little room of whiny, complainy people who for some reason have decided they don't like me (never want to have the best numbers if you want to be popular!). They're constantly just off topic, shoving pictures of their kids in each other's faces, etc. My boss is a nightmare, she's hugely inconsistent, unprofessionally close with certain team members, and thanks to her the job is nothing but a constant loop of the same busywork. Not only were we lied to about hours, what the job entails, etc, but we're not even doing social work any more, just pushing papers.

I've had some shit jobs, but never one's where I sit there basically on the verge of tears all day wishing I could just quit. So I'm looking for some more advance tips from LBM or GBM to help survive!

I felt just like this back in August. I resolved to step over my job and use it as a platform for as long as needed. Then just hit them with the two weeks notice as they were getting comfortable with me in my inferior role. The month before that, I had no web developer projects under my belt and now I have three with more in the works, a contract job to develop a site to get a little under 2k, and a prospective full time offer for May 2018 that I just read off my phone today. Will it devastate them when I'm gone? Certainly. How do I know this? Because I made it so by buttering them up before the slaughter. Especially since they think that I have forgotten my past grievances. Revenge is a dish best served cold. And remember, good employees don't leave companies. They leave bad managers. Bad employees don't care whether management is good or bad.

It's funny that you brought this up because I was actually thinking about this. I think the Fraternitas Saturnis was quite dark and the Black Sun. The Bohemian Grove (or Bohemian Club) comes to mind too.

I was watching a YouTube video today by Mark Passio, an ex-Satanic priest claiming to demystify the occult. Although I'm a bit skeptical of his characterization of the CoS and ToS as lower-level organization that serves as a public interface to vet eligible candidates for  some overarching sinister purpose, he had named a number of other organizations that I don't know anything about specifically: the Bohemian Club; Skull and Bones; intelligence agencies (not sure which ones or all of them?); Tavis Stock Institute; the Bilderburg Group; and so called "royal" bloodlines like the Merovingians and what have you. He just lumps everything as Dark Occult lol.

It's a long presentation so skip to 56:16 which is the part that I refer:

Yes. So I suppose this model would treat those five points as exceptions to the rule. Statistically, you have covered the normal distribution of phenomena that would occur on a day-to day basis for anyone. Whatever remains are seen as outliers.

This is quite coherent actually. And I'd imagine that idealists, immaterialists or nondualists may possibly see it this way - not only materialists. At least I do. Concerning archetypes, an evocation can be reframed as someone facing their demons and approaching their shadow so as to integrate it to their conscious psyche. It would be the equivalent of an alchemical transformation of the self to gold through a series of processes. Bookmarked.

Tbh. I have not stuck to one yet. Aside from the classic setup, two other ones come to mind.

Firstly, that the world (or rather my psyche-centric view of it) is my altar.

And secondly, to carry a portable one with me wherever I go. A secret altar. Some ideas are as follows:
