I hate this dumb fucking ideology.

I.   Cognitive Dissonance is experienced by human beings when there is mental discord related to a contradiction between one thought and another. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people are averse to inconsistencies within their own minds. It offers one explanation for why people sometimes make an effort to adjust their thinking when their own thoughts, words, or behaviors seem to clash. And it may lead us to alter our attitudes to be more consistent. Study participants who complete an uninteresting task have been found to rate the task as more enjoyable if they were first asked to tell someone else it was enjoyable—an effect attributed to cognitive dissonance. Theoretically, dissonance may contribute to a variety of changes in behavior or beliefs.

•   In a basic sense, cognitive dissonance refers to a situation where someone’s behavior conflicts with their beliefs or attitudes. For example, when people smoke even though they know it’s pretty bad for them, they experience cognitive dissonance. Their behavior (smoking) is inconsistent with their beliefs (smoking is bad). The net effect is that they may experience feelings of discomfort, and this generally results in the modification of either their attitude/belief or behavior so that they feel less discomfort.

•   A psychologist by the name of Leon Festinger came up with the idea of cognitive dissonance way back in the late 1950s, and did a heap of pioneering work in the field. Festinger suggested that we each have many different attitudes and beliefs about the world, and that we each behave in a number of different ways. We are all powerfully motivated to maintain cognitive consistency, and it is this force that can sometimes result in us behaving irrationally, and sometimes even maladaptively.

Because the feeling of dissonance is uncomfortable most strive to reduce it. The reduction of dissonance can be achieved in one of three ways: either we change our attitude(s)/belief(s)/behavior(s) (e.g. give up smoking), acquire new information (“research is yet to definitively prove that smoking causes lung cancer”), or reduce the importance of cognitions (beliefs/attitudes) (“it’s better to live a short life filled with pleasures like smoking than to live a long one devoid of any such joys”).

The formulation of the idea of cognitive dissonance arose from Festinger’s observation of a cult/UFO religion (‘The Seekers’) active in the early to mid-1950s. When their prophesied apocalypse failed to be realized, committed followers adopted an array of bizarre coping mechanisms. To deal with their disconfirmed expectancy, most of the ‘heavily invested members’ (many had left jobs/spouses and/or given away money and possessions) re-interpreted the evidence (that the world didn’t end) as proof that they were right all along (“the world was going to be destroyed, but was spared because of our faith”). In other words, rather than dealing with the dissonance and discomfort arising from being really committed to something and seeing clear evidence opposing it, devout members adjusted their beliefs so that they were more consistent with the evidence.

Members who weren’t so committed simply felt a bit foolish and chalked the whole thing up to experience. Festinger suggested that for someone to maintain or become more fervent about a belief after a disconfirmation, certain conditions must be met:

•   The belief must be held with deep conviction
•   The believer must have committed themselves to the belief (they must have taken some important action that is hard to undo)
•   The belief has to be specific and concerned with the real world
•   The believer must have social support (e.g. group membership)
•   And the disconfirming evidence has to be obvious, undeniable, and acknowledged by the believer
II.   Cognitive Bias describes the inherent thinking errors that humans make in processing information. Some of these have been verified empirically in the field of psychology, while others are considered general categories of bias. These thinking errors prevent one from accurately understanding reality, even when confronted with all the needed data and evidence to form an accurate view. Many conflicts between science and religion are due to cognitive biases preventing people from coming to the same conclusions with the same evidence. Cognitive bias is intrinsic to human thought, and therefore any system of acquiring knowledge that attempts to describe reality must include mechanisms to control for bias or it is inherently invalid.

The best known system for vetting and limiting the consequences of cognitive bias is the scientific method, as it places evidence and methodology behind the idea that is under open scrutiny. By this, many opinions and separate analyses can be used to compensate for the bias of any one individual. It is important to remember, however, that in everyday life, just knowing about these biases doesn't necessarily free one from them. [https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases]

III.   Magical thinking is defined as believing that one event happens as a result of another without a plausible link of causation.  Magical thinkers believe that one’s ideas, thoughts, actions, words, or use of symbols can influence the course of events in the material world. Magical thinking presumes a causal link between one’s inner, personal experience and the external physical world.

However, In order to live we have to believe things without proof. If we refused to believe what our doctors, plumbers, electricians, barbers, or nannies told us without first being shown incontrovertible evidence our lives would come to a grinding halt. Furthermore, some questions we burn to answer aren't necessarily provable or disprovable. We can't escape the intrinsic subjectivity with which we experience and interpret objective events. The best we can do is rigorously question the criteria we use to decide something is true.

IV.   Magical Thinkers are more susceptible to indoctrination by Malicious Agents armed with Dangerous Ideologies. Magical thinking is likely to increase in an individual seeking relief from Cognitive Dissonance. In such a diverse and immense social climate this inconsistency between what people believe and how they behave motivates average people to engage in actions that will help minimize feelings of discomfort. Numerous actors provide a platform for malicious ideologies in their effort to validate dissonant beliefs, providing victims with relief from the aforementioned psychological discomfort, and in exchange the victim develops trust in the malicious agent. These malicious agents present false narratives or non-narratives in an attempt to gain power, money, or influence from multiple victims using various internet platforms.

•   “No matter how attractive a group is to a person it is rarely completely positive, i.e., usually there are some aspects of the group that the individual docs not like. If he has undergone an unpleasant initiation to gain admission to the group, his cognition that he has gone through an unpleasant experience for the sake of membership is dissonant with his cognition that there are things about the group that he does not like. He can reduce this dissonance in two ways. He can convince himself that the initiation was not very unpleasant, or he can exaggerate the positive characteristics of the group and minimize its negative aspects. With increasing severity of initiation it becomes more and more difficult to believe that the initiation was not very bad. Thus, a person who has gone through a painful initiation to become a member of a group should tend to reduce his dissonance by over estimating the attractiveness of the group. The specific hypothesis tested in the present study is that individuals who undergo an unpleasant initiation to become members of a group increase their liking for the group; that is, they find the group more attractive than do persons who become members without going through a severe initiation.” [THE EFFECT OF SEVERITY OF INITIATION ON LIKING FOR A GROUP, ELLIOT ARONSON Stanford &MILLS]

•   Subjects who underwent a severe initiation perceived the group as being significantly more attractive than did those who underwent a mild initiation or no initiation. There was no appreciable difference between ratings by subjects who underwent a Mild initiation and those by subjects who underwent no initiation.

Clear and sophisticated thinkers remain consistently wary of the influences that put them at risk for magical thinking, always cognizant that why they believe what they do is influenced by so many things besides their reasoning minds:
•   What their parents taught them from an early age.
•   What they want to believe is true.
•   What their experience suggests should be true.

So how can we stop thinking magically?

Magical thinking remains a subtle obstacle to making good decisions. But the more we observe ourselves, the more we can reduce our tendency to indulge in it:

•   Consciously identify your desires and biases. Write them down. Try to identify their cause. Work to free yourself from them to the best of your ability.

•   Demand proof when proof seems demonstrable. Try to remain intellectually "agnostic" toward what hasn't been proven or isn't provable, even if you find yourself emotionally inclined to believe it. Try to regard your belief as just that—an inclination—so that you're not tempted to act with more confidence in your belief than is justified.

•   Beware the tendency to let others think for you. This is as insidious as it is widespread. A journalist presents a position about a topic of the day and has his or her opinion accepted as fact. One friend makes a statement about another and everyone accepts it as true without bothering to investigate themselves. Though I don't agree with many of the principles espoused by Ayn Rand in her book, The Fountainhead, the point she makes about how so many of us subjugate our judgment to others is worth taking to heart (a great read, by the way, which I highly recommend).

We all tend to cling not only to the things we believe but the reasoning that leads us to believe them. Despite all my efforts, I've not yet been able to break through my patient's magical thinking about the cause of her constipation. So I continue to do what I've done: chant to manifest the wisdom to somehow find a way to succeed, having proven to myself many times over that chanting has the power to yield wisdom I didn't know I had—a power, however, that can only ever be proven by someone to themselves.

Satanism / Correspondences & Soul Complex
« on: October 13, 2020, 01:30:30 pm »
Hello everyone!

I wanted to open a discussion surrounding correspondences in relation to the self such as the mind body soul complex, the Norse soul complex, The Daemon and the scarlet woman, etc. I find it interesting that although we can find themes in ancestral correspondences, those relate to perceived parts of objective objects while soul complexes define and measure the subjective. I also was curious as to the value of soul-splitting across LHP practice.


Finally, I wanted to ask any Chaotes if they ever find permanence in these correspondences and if they 'feel' different from servitors and/or Tulpas in either form or sensation?

General LHP Discussion / Naturalistic Occultism Moving Foreward
« on: June 17, 2020, 07:42:49 am »
Hello All,

  I wanted to send out some feelers and see if any of you use the Methods of Scientific Illuminism in your practice. I'm still pretty early in IAO131's book but the Society of Scientific Illuminism's website is inactive, and there is a spattering of New-age looking search results when you search them. I wonder how imbedded these practices are in LHP disciplines, and I especially wonder about Chaotes. The author contrasted his methods against those of three categories of esoteric traditions (which he states are over-simplifications provided to elucidate his point) to include New Age, Hermeticism, and Chaos Magick.

  Chaotes were stated to be pragmatic but overly materialistic, and IAO131 thinks this materialistic focus prevents individual spiritual goal. I would argue that not all practitioners are the same, and that even if materialistic acquisition is the goal, the means of attaining that goal lead to personal development, and the increased availability of metaphysical tool.

 He also holds a deep aversion for charlatans and promoters of spiritual consumerism (Self-help books, homeopathy, expensive and dogmatic metaphysical book courses, ect) and it reflects in his disdain for materialistic pursuits, implying that most practitioners focusing on material goals are unable to see past "Attainment," and are more likely to succumb to desires that distract from personal development. His solution is to insert an anti-money making axiom into his definition of Scientific Illuminist. I see this action as highly hypocritical considering I had to buy his book to read that. Anyway, he says,


Quote
As Scientific Illuminists, we are wary of commodifying our purposes and methods. Capitalism is so embedded in all of our brains by virtue of the fact of our having been brought up in modern society that the desire to turn a profit from what we are doing is a continual threat.

Which would be fine on its own. Be wary of your own greed. I get that. But then he goes on to say,

Quote
We must always reorient ourselves in the direction of progress, both internally (What is often ambiguously called "spiritual progress") and externally (the progress of our theories & methods of occultism as well as the growth of our community). Even if we do turn our attention to the effecting of material ends it must be done in the spirit of exploration and the pursuit of understanding rather than the material ends in and of themselves.


Sounds very solar and selfless IMO. What do you think? And what are your thoughts on Illuminism?

Access to memory is used to recall previous similar instances and may have relevant ties to access mechanisms defined in the field of machine learning. As of now, we can observe that short term memory is accessed in similar functions of data retrieval, while long term memory relies on situational cues, both internal and external. Most manifestations result in biased memory unless the user has an established form of emotional control. Furthermore, the effect of emotion is minimized to nearly un-detectable capacity while retaining or even improving its core function if the user has acquired methods of thought transmutation, banishment, free expression, coping, ect.

Emotional states also relay the cost value of predictive models by punishing the user for non-beneficial action (self motivated or otherwise.) Unless the user can acknowledge the cost value and adjust the model appropriately (take responsibility for and acknowledge their contribution to the perception of stress) malignant action or thought remains beneficial in the mind of the user, contrasting the reality of their actions. By taking responsibility for perceived error we are able to identify thoughts and action that contribute to the perceived failure and adjust them for later re-testing.


Focused attention determines resources spent on each predictive model in relation the to the value of success. This is how we plot courses of action in accordance with desire, or form desire all together. If the information is being considered to fill a need, focused attention determines the perception of that need's urgency.

Thelema / Scientific Illuminism
« on: April 14, 2020, 06:21:19 am »
Ave All,

 While getting my ducks in a row for an ordination program, I realized that a personal ethos to define my esoteric tradition as a "Truth finding," system is cumbersome. The program's director made a comment stating that a "Thelemic Black Magician," that aligns their beliefs with Scientific Illuminism should fit just fine, but went on to confess that they aren't familiar with the Thelemic system. Neither am I.

In my research I came across a book called "Naturalistic Occultism: An Introduction to Scientific Illuminism," but I'm still reading The Better Angels of our Nature, The Revolt of Angels, and Speak of the Devil (At the same fucking time unfortunately) and I don't have the time or energy to take on a fourth. I tried to find some YouTube videos outlining the core concepts, but most of what I found were lectures loosely defining a system of "Magical science," that reminded me of the testing methods employed by the IOT with a more focused theorem. Unfortunately the lectures were 20+ minutes of armature teaching, and I don't have time like that.

I was wondering if anyone with eyes on this board could provide resources or a quick overview of the core concepts and how it differs from techniques used in other non-theistic traditions. I don't like mixing science and magic, especially when speaking to mundanes or new Satanists. Hopefully these methods will give a respectable form to magic's practice & exploration without pulling the pseudo-science mix-up we see in many new-age movements.

Journals / Km Anu's Divination Log
« on: December 31, 2019, 09:01:07 am »
My daily stuff all happens at the altar, and as a result stays in the Altar's books. I'm no good at transcription (Poor work ethic probably) and so I've decided to start logging here occasionally. I'm not the world's most experienced oracle, and I'm by no means any more or less magical by nature than anyone else. That is to say, I don't believe that I'm "Psychic," I think I have a gift for abstraction. My techniques include Water scrying (In a black reflective bowl; Void scrying), Chiromancy, Tarot, and a form of less idealistic "Psychometry." I suspect most of this will be stuff I do outside of the home, basically everything except dream stuff and water scrying. I'll only be asking in relation to myself, but I can take requests. Although I assume most of you have something that you do yourselves, and that my predictions will be nearly useless. Like I said before, I'm just an abstract thinker.


To start Hapu brought up some thoughts on time in another thread. I thought since I've been working with my new time control Rune, I asked how to make the tools work more efficiently, and how to remember how to use them. I did a balanced three card spread assessing the Wode (First card down, top center, called "Superconscious" by some) Hugh (Left brain, 2nd card, left side) and Myne (Right brain, 3rd card, 3rd side). I Ended up with:

PRINCE OF CUPS
THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS (INVERTED)
THE HERMIT

(I tried to format them into the spread position but failed. In the future if I can I'll post the cards, but no promises here).

The desired state of initiation is blocked by desire. We learned of our ability to chose enrichment of the soul over the dreamy distractions of the sleeping sheep, but have yet to see the distinction between what helps NOW and what helps ALWAYS. This inability to align the will towards what we want, or really even identify our TRUE needs leads to the pursuit of that same sleepless dream. The un-comfortability of feeling appeased and also unfulfilled. We still desire and schedule for useless practice as a rebellion against death. We will/have died, and we will die again. And again. The Hermit encourages strength in the solitude of death, and in the fear brought by its anticipation. All energy is just that; energy. It burns away at us from within when held and compounded, and cries for release. Dwelling on this despair has led to an understanding of its presence, but not a resolution. The prince of cups presents a solution beyond directed oppositional change, encouraging each Self to face its father in the cold fire of the Aether, and provide for each into the night. Together they will look beyond the night, beyond the dark, beyond the world of horrors, and into flow of Wode. The Daemon has gifted terrible knowledge of our Ascent, we need only feed it what it, what WE truly crave. Potentiality. Discipline. Practice. Art. Conflict. And in the wake of our gluttonous deluge, we will grow into our selves, becoming both the elder in the eve and the child in the day.


Notes:
The narrative is just me typing without thinking, a pure expression of compressed thought. Afterwards and upon examination, it was clear to me how this answer directly relates to the question asked, and how I know (and obviously have known subconsciously) how to control the effect time has on me. I won't get too deep into it here, but the way time FEELS is related to how Ultradian Timekeeping effects perception. I've been developing and strengthening a rune to effect this process given some of the neuroscientific data available as well as some of my past fact-finding endeavors related to ADHD, memory, and altered time perception. I've gotten the rune to work to good effect nearly in the capacity that a volume dial works to control sound intensity. This adjusts time intensity. My biggest obstacle is that the rune doesn't work in high stress situations, even if I'm calm. (On this; common in ADHD. Fight or flight works more as a hyper-focus trigger. I'm still not sold on there being a difference between the romanticized idea of hyper-focus in comparison to intense perseveration, but to each his own. The information in this) link applies directly to me, I can easily validate the subjective aspects. I'm not acquainted well with this journal, so take it with a grain of salt.)

The other is that I 'Forget' to use the rune. Usually I'd schedule its use and place some environmental reminder, or tie it to some daily re-occurring event (using bathroom, brushing teeth, etc) but I don't use it when I need it as a utility. Forming new habits is tough and takes time. Usually I just acknowledge that and move on, but it hasn't been working here. The cards say that the habits I perceive as 'fast' don't benefit me, and cloud my usage of the rune. Its like having a mail opener right in front of you and ripping open a letter. By habit I do some other-thing to make time feel fast or slow, and especially at home that other thing is very un-productive. I've been thinking most times "I want to fill my time at home with moving excitedly from task to task," But when I'm actually there I do EVERYTHING like a chore so I can hurry up and play video games, or read, or if I'm really in a bad way, lay there and stare at the ceiling wishing I could sleep. I'm not unhappy, just lazy.

Another big part is that I'm always stoned at home. I don't like taking stimulants outside of work, but in gaining clarity, I am now less equipped for how strong brain fog FEELS and just how limiting it is. My magic will strengthen when my thoughts do basically, and my thoughts will clear when I do the things I need to do to clear it instead of wasting my time in a waking dream. The hermit shows I must accept more solitude to actuate this, and I know that. Its why I haven't done it.

I'm not a child, I can resist the urge to fuck off and play games, smoking my brain into oblivion. Its just that as I get older, I have less and less friends, and now I'm alone. Alaska has a hard culture and a huge drug problem, and I had to leave just about everyone behind when I joined the army. My best friend is also in the army, and if I'm lucky maybe once a week we hang out for a few hours. I've attached this social interaction and the......potential for it to come to fruition to playing games. I need to accept that internal loss. The attachment was mis-placed to begin with.

General LHP Discussion / Creating runic systems by recycling sigils
« on: December 26, 2019, 05:56:16 pm »
Some stuff from This thread.

It seems that at three of us have a system for re-using sigils, it may be prudent to exchange techniques. I was wondering if anyone else converts these into runic structures.

For the last eight months I've been refining ways of understanding the core of the desire I'd 'sigilized' while charging, usually in meditation. It starts as a word, usually some arbitrary theme related to the desire, but later may re-surface with a clearer and much simpler meaning. I record it afterwards. Sometimes the appearance of the image and sound structure of the 'word' has changed. This is also recorded. This was an organic process but has grown into a complex practice, similar to Galdr. The organic nature of its development combined with the similarity to a bloodline tradition that I already practice leads me to believe that each system (if they exist) would look strikingly different, like Spare's here or any number of variants,such as mine Depicted below.

If we could exchange the theory and development of these techniques we could potentially grow each-other's practice immensely.


(Edit: I left my tablet at work, I'll attach a sample latter today.)

Setian Philosophy / Xeper and its application in sigil magic
« on: November 15, 2019, 04:45:53 am »
Sigil magic is designed to create change in the immediate environment by inspiring change in the practitioner. The practitioner identifies a goal and creates a command to begin to strive towards that goal. This command is a form of communication from self to self, you telling you to change. Sigils can be created anywhere and can be charged and fired quickly and discretely. Certainly an understanding of this tool is a benefit to any with the knowledge of its operation.

Sigils are nothing more than self created symbolism. In the same way a person may insert a bullet point to remember a concept while taking notes a person may create a sigil to remember to pursue a goal. In reviewing sigils after a decided period of time a practitioner can gauge the effectiveness of their efforts and adjust their techniques accordingly. In my experience this leads to self discovery by teaching the practitioner how their deeper self communicates with your consciousness.

So how do they work? That's the trick, its hard to communicate this across disciplines. For now we'll say the conscious mind sends a command to the sub conscious mind which then gently prompts thought through waking life towards fulfillment of the identified goal. Deeper exploration of this subject is a discussion for another day.

There are many resources for information on sigil construction. The most comprehensive guide I've come across is Practical Sigil Magic (Frater U.: D.: ). The most inconsistent element among them is how timing is worded in the sigil. You see, when attempting to use a sigil to gain an attribute such as financial stability its hard to tell if the command should be "My will is to become financially stable," "I am financially stable," or "I am becoming financially stable." One is a wish, one is a delusion, and one never ends. There is a simple solution however in becoming.

If we use the simple definition of Xeper as, "I have come into being, and through the act of coming into being I have established the process of coming into being," we can create a sigil that transcends the element of time by examining it in its entirety. This is the value of Xeper when applied to sigil magic and the advantage of those familiar with the term. Applied our sentence of desire looks more abstract, more simple, more personal. We may now apply "Xeper to Financial stability," and eliminate the fallacies presented in the previous examples.

I used to write some here and there. It's good expression. I'll start with this old one.

Within me it writhes,

Please take your place,

It rules me inside,

Taking up space.

It speaks through you,

And there is no escape.

There's nothing I can do,

It's gnawing rules my fate.

Other Religions / Eclectic Samhain Ritual for the Circle of Mona
« on: October 31, 2019, 08:56:15 am »

Opening


The Calling of the Neter from Duat

Drum sounds once and flame is blown out. Sit in darkness 9 moments separating with drum.


Light the black flame, sound drum x9


Enter the front and round x4 Sinistral


Stop at front facing the black flame


Setan:


Eye of the Tempest, Storm that Drives the People Home, Force of Will.  As the waters grow then recede when the time has come, Your purpose fills me.  I will not falter; you will be my hands and eyes. The same darkness that fills my mind empowers me to seek inner light. For without those long shadows, unending light would dominate my view. For want of shade I fall into myself.


Usir:


Cloth of  the Body of Flesh, Yet in whom is the Spirit of Man. I am the Lord of Life, triumphant over Death, and through you I am complete. I am as you are, dead but dreaming. You will be my rest and comfort in the twilight.


Ese:


Power that radiates from the eye of conception, the Sun is body from which Your Progeny is fashioned! Take the light in it. Assume the fire from it and return these gifts to mankind, whom is heir to your womb through the glow of your light’s perfection.


Neb-het:


Oh dark mother, our wet-nurse in night. My heart is your gift, torn asunder from the jaws of Apep. I watch for you in the long and sleepless dream, and welcome the silver bask of your illumination. As your sister stands behind me your smile welcomes my soul, and my spirit sighs into your embrace.



Heru-ur:


Raptor of war, glare of the dawn, subjugator of content and unifier of men. In your light does Deshyr glean Sekhem. Our shrieks against the light echo in the culling of serpents in the sand. Unite the power of The Hornless in raucous exaltation.


Round once sinistral intoning god names before returning to center. Raise arms in a V and intone, dropping arms with exhalation of breath to cover the heart with both hands, right over left. Turn kiss left hand raising in the sign of horns.


The World:

“As the Primal ones scream against their father The Hornless rage against illumination. In unity the Leviathan slithers, passionless and atrophied. It churns creation and destruction, devouring the spark of lesser men. We are the knife buried in twilight, craving the blood of Apep. We are the exalted throne of Sekhem at dawn, and all to end.”


Cross arms in Usir position and bow head for a count of nine.


Establishment of Coven


To the parishioners:

The hornless welcome the sheep of men and invite them to enter the world of horrors. The whispers of Anpu speak our names across the Duat, and Khemenu sings across the veil. We do hereby establish the Circle of Mona, and the council of 5 forces.


Identification of the year’s desired changes


“As winter approaches and Re prepares for a journey to the heart of darkness so too does the sky dim. Here Nut and Geb submit to Shu, and the hornless prepare for the sleep of Yule. Setan prepares his assault on Usir, and Neb-het receives the seed of his virtue.


The Hornless call upon the will of Hekate in the setting sun, and petition Kali for gail of triumph. Our lovely goddess of creativity, inspire our hearts and devour our doubt. Give, Love, Live, Die, and Dream of the Nun before remanifestation. Let Nebhet build us in our slumber, and may we wake with the wisdom of Dejuty.


We are as we are until we are no more. In the ashlands of our dead selves the seeds of Xepri take root and flourish. No aspect is fixed, and each of us bears all we need from within. The hornless invite the sheep of men to join us before the black flame and sheer that which binds.”


Non-coveners are invited to write their resolutions on paper and drop them into the cauldron. After wards, a libation is prepared and taken.


“Drink of the waters of Nun, let them fill your mouth as the love of our dark mother fills our hearts. For in those waters we are made whole again.”


Coveners are invited to stand before the flame as the circle is closed.


“They were, they are, and they will be again. They Die and we rejoice. They dream and we are, and in waking we will be no more. The hornless wait for their waking and devour the nightmares in waiting, and all to end.”

Non-Coveners are banished from the circle.


Round Sinistral reciting the names. Return to center and intone towards the black flame with arms in a V as before. Exhale and intone falling to right hand over left over heart. Turn and snap to Usir position.


“We release the Neteru from Duat unto the earth, and echo their whispers in our hearts and minds. The hornless hereby call all to end.”


Swiftly exit forward, leaving the ritual chamber.

Other Religions / Kemetian science moving forward
« on: October 30, 2019, 05:45:01 pm »
My delve into modern interpretations of ancient Egyptian religion have blown me away.  I found a lot of what I expected to; people with sparse occultic knowledge creating some weird Buddhist Kemetic Wicca. But I was surprised a few times by two extremes of interpretation:  A "scientific," interpretation that shows how figures interactions and core concepts Express natrual functions or events, and Artistic renditions of expressive creation. Both led me to a dimensional model of conciousness similar to the nine angles system.

I also learned that 9 is a relevant number in the Kemetian mythos as well as a few not mentioned in Infernal Geometry (Chappell). It seems the link here would be conciousness. I came to the conclusion that conciousness is the expression of higher causation, a perceptual awareness of it's own expression within a higher reality. This is evidenced in various theoretical quantum models as well as some psychological ones. Here I'll link a video that prompts the viewer to visualize these higher dimensions https://youtu.be/gg85IH3vghA

The idea is that existence is perceived in 4d (on a 3d plane but passing through 4d [time]) desires, thoughts, and memories happen within thought in 5d (on the 4d plane [time is controlled, all things are perceived together until separated by subjective time] but passing through the 5th) and conceptualization takes place on the 6th ( he calls it a phase space, it's like endless events occuring at once). The brain may just be the link between our  perception of dimensions and our body's, or a ,mechanism that accesses these spaces to plot its course through existence. Or who knows, perhaps its building new realities within it?

The concepts are promising enough to warrant further investigation.
