The book has grown on me quite a bit, lots of stuff in one place.

I found a Unicode PDF which has them, if you go to properties or whatever there is a list of the embedded fonts used.

I can't get it to work either. Sometimes I miss web 1.0, lol.

Old-English type fonts are nice for aesthetics in headings, but make for a terrible reading experience in terms of the copy text. The fonts in Aquino's book are strange in places but more readable then that, lol.

Many meteorites amount to a lump of iron/nickel alloy (similar to the Earth's core). Given their symbolic ways, it isn't a surprise that they forged things from them. Recent testing apparently substantiates their use of meteorites:

This is an interesting thought, and a bit of a mystery. Since metaphysics involves things which are beyond physics it can be hard to understand. Perhaps we are the result of some fusion of both natural creation and unnatural self-creation?

I don't know what the hell it is, but here is a book on sale for 20% off resulting in an unbeatable low price of $320,000.

Well that's an expensive one. There are plenty of rich folks around, years ago there was this one guy who showed up to the metal concerts in a snakeskin jacket, and people used to wear $30k fur coats and shit.

I like the aesthetics and quality, but wish after some grace period they could be put into paperback. I think I kind of understand the business model though: if someone pays a lot of money for an exclusive item they may not be happy if the value goes down if it becomes widely available in a cheaper format.

It looks like the book has been discounted 25%, for a bargain price of $16,350, lol.

Welcome Mage666,

Xepera maSet's book is interesting because it is almost purely philosophical and is written in Plain English™. I like how he how he defines "Greater Black Magic" on p.14. Life is the Great Working!

MindWar in a nutshell:

Quote from: Dr. Aquino
Unlike PSYOP, MindWar has nothing to do with deception or even with "selected" - and therefore misleading - truth. Rather it states a whole truth that, if it does not now exist, will be forced into existence by the will of the United States.

In WWII we dropped the first bombs which put us in a position of superiority, but what a disaster in terms of loss of life after so many were already lost in battle. The concept of MindWar though seems to a "surgical" one in terms of defusing (or lessening) physical warfare.

Propaganda machines exist everywhere from Hollywood to religion to shopping at the store. I think the ethical use of them depends on context as @idgo indicated.

Had to find the quote but something like this was on the brain:

Quote from: Anton LaVey
The difference between the man or woman who’s a practicing Satanist, from an identity Satanist is that the practicing Satanist looks at the picture, while the identity Satanist studies the frame.

A successful picture framing job draws attention to the artwork instead of taking away from it. If a fancy-schmancy frame serves to that end, fine. Many pictures I've seen over 20 years were terrible to begin with. Likewise if the framing job is terrible, it will only serve to detract from what otherwise could have been be a beautiful display.

As a product of the 80's, I remember Bob Ross since I was interested in art. I'm not wild about "starving artist" type paintings, but can appreciate the efficiency of his techniques. Even though I watched the show I never painted like that, always preferred using thin transparent layers instead of spackling paint all over the canvas like a Tammy Fae Bakker makeup job.

My first electric guitar was rather like a 30-minute Bob Ross TV show in that I just wanted to get a feel for the process, knowing that the first time around wasn't going to be perfect anyway so I didn't waste too much time. It was playable but the next few I built were a lot better. Likewise the O.S. is a work-in-progress.

Anyway, it's a funny analogy.

Yeah, I favor the intelligent exchange of ideas over passing around collection plates. There were some up-front costs here, but monthly expenses are minimal and I've handled everything myself without resorting to money-making schemes. No need for membership dues the way we operate.

The gist of my previous post is that I would like the O.S. to be about the quality of the painting, instead of some expensive frame. Material offerings are okay, but should be as break-even as possible to avoid this becoming a business instead of an esoteric school of thought.

I intend to make a page containing high-resolution versions of our artwork, so people can get their own stuff made (banners, pendants, etc), working on the legal boilerplate for that.

Marketing 101: make it affordable and reach the biggest consumer audience as possible  :rolleyes:

Haha. I was a professional picture framer for most of my life, basically one of the foremost who served the "upper crust". My work was immaculate so I could charge a pretty hefty premium for it.

That said, the contents of the frames didn't always justify the high cost.
