There is an upgrade coming but the stable version isn't ready yet, plus it would erase ALL of the mods like the Gallery and upgraded Conversations system. It could also break the upgraded PM system. Probably better to leave well enough alone for now.

It's like the American Revolution all over again in my neighborhood and it's only 9:00 PM.

Yeah I think a decent set of sentence structures would be ideal, along with just phrases and small-talk type stuff: https://www.lexico.com/en/grammar/sentences

Types of words: https://www.lexico.com/en/grammar/word-classes-or-parts-of-speech

From a programming standpoint the whole idea doesn't seem difficult to me, besides creating the word lists. The data structures would be easy, one example:

"I eat cereal in the morning."

[pronoun] [verb] [noun] [preposition] [determiner] [noun]

Or something like that. The various pronunciation marks would be included in the sentence structures.

The program is very similar in concept to one I wrote in my late teens called "Wisdom". The idea is to have a database of nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc, and place them into known types of sentence structures. This is pretty much what I was going for but more advanced.

Satanism / Re: "The Satanic Bible" by Michael Aquino
« on: July 01, 2019, 11:22:09 am »
Not super wild about the title, but whatever, it contains a nice collection of Aquino's ideas and experiences in one place which is what matters the most to me. If someone could only afford one book from Aquino, I would probably recommend this one.

I attempted to dig them up through the filenames, but to no avail.

We like to throw ideas around so feel free to use the forum as you may. Some features are broken because of a server operating system update, but I'll see if I can get things up to par soon. Thank you for signing up.

Quote from: Olive
Very interesting thread here. I would like your first post if I could, Idgo, but the like function hasn't been working at all for me lately.

Sorry some things are still broken. I'm working on it, there was a server program upgrade that is causing problems.

Edit: I looked into upgrading the software, but this is going to take manual fixing. :angry: Fucking Hell.

To me, Crowley was both a genius and a nut-case. (Apparently he took a lot of drugs.) I just treat the Left-Hand Path as a smorgasbord from which one may pick and choose. Good ideas stand on their own, I'll take what I like and leave the rest.

Found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inbreeding_depression

And this from Psychology Today: http://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/animals-and-us/201210/the-problem-incest. I don't think I'm complete agreement with this article, but it does get into the subject of incest and inbreeding:

Quote
They found a surprisingly small increase (about 4 percent) in birth defects among the children of married cousins. Incest between first-degree relatives, however, was a different story. The researchers examined four studies (including the Czech research) on the effects of first-degree incest on the health of the offspring. Forty percent of the children were born with either autosomal recessive disorders, congenital physical malformations, or severe intellectual deficits. And another 14 percent of them had mild mental disabilities.

There is an interesting article in The Imperishable Star IV (p.79) entitled "Crowley's Satanism" (p.79).

Crowley largely remains a curiosity to me, but was a prolific writer who had his moments, examples:

Quote from: Book of the Law
With my Hawk’s head I peck at the eyes of Jesus as he hangs upon the cross.
I flap my wings in the face of Mohammed & blind him.
With my claws I tear out the flesh of the Indian and the Buddhist, Mongol and Din.
Bahlasti! Ompehda! I spit on your crapulous creeds.
Let Mary inviolate be torn upon wheels: for her sake let all chaste women be utterly despised among you!

Quote from: Book IV
Frater Perdurabo is the most honest of all the great religious teachers. Others have said: “Believe me!” He says: “Don’t believe me!” He does not ask for followers, would despise and refuse them. He wants an independent and self-reliant body of students to follow out their own methods of research. If he can save them time and trouble by giving a few useful “tips,” his work will have been done to his own satisfaction.

Another thought from @Xepera maSet 's recent publication (comparing to Setian Philosophy though):

Quote from: Behold: The Prince of Darkness
Now that we have concluded that Thelema can be, if it is not primarily, a Left Hand Path religion, we must look at the absolute key difference between Thelema and Setianism. The key to this is the word itself, "Thelema", which is translated as "Divine Will" if not just "Will." In all forms of Thelema, including the Typhonian Tradition, this is either the will of Nature itself or of the All/God. This means that to "do one's True Will" was to align oneself with the Will of God/All/Nature.

Quote from: UnH0lyDIvinity
What if: Satan is described as the Lower embodiment while Lucifer the Light Bringer is thought of as the Higher Self.

I'm interested in other's thoughts here, but see the idea of carnal existence in tandem with self-aware intelligence, or something like that?

Welcome @DarkDesert , at the moment the forum has technical issues so some features don't work, thanks for taking the time to visit.

As abrasive as it might seem at first glance, I think the message here is indeed the rejection of stereotypes in favor of embracing the Truth of Being on your own terms. Good post @Etu Malku .
