it gave me over time as my day job is in retail but now im paranoid ill get it and be forced out of work for 2 weeks. Thankfully in California they are providing a better safety net if you are forced to quarantine. I also though share a restroom with several other tenants so that creates... a unique situation if I were to get it.
I take it that while you are sick you don't get paid?
(Here you can be sick for I think up to 7 weeks paid by your employer, and afterwards you'll get paid, albeit less, by your health insurance - you may still lose you job if you're sick too often, but in general it's nothing to worry about.)

Huh, if things continue like they do, retail (or at least supermarket and pharmacy retail) will be almost the only kind of business still open.

Good luck to y'all! Stay healthy!


Apparently not, or they are not forced to as they are a large corporation.


I didn't think it would get too bad, honestly, and start to recover and blow over after a while, until Italy today had 500 deaths and their cases shot way up.


I think the lack of testing in Italy is an indication of what happens when they don't take it seriously. South Korea and Japan ect took it seriously, and seem to be doing okay and are less shut down than places like the USA or Italy that denied it and didn't bother preparing with early testing.


And now we are seeing what can happen, and now I'm actually worried that even with such quarantine measures how fast this thing can spread.

General LHP Discussion / baphomet pronounciation
« on: March 11, 2020, 11:36:08 am »
I had a small argument about the correct pronunciation in person, and seems the internet isn't helping me and some guides have one or the other, or even both!


Either Bapho-met


or Bapho-may


Can anyone with a greater knowledge of language or etymology provide me on some insight?

General LHP Discussion / “Hermetically Open"
« on: March 01, 2020, 02:39:57 am »
Not sure if anyone has heard of this project: http://www.openculture.com/2018/02/1600-occult-books-now-digitized-put-online.html

It was supposed to be here, but apparently moved: https://www.ritmanlibrary.com/hermetically-open/
 
Here is the actual library, many historical occult books scanned, many in Latin, French, or Dutch and stuff: https://embassyofthefreemind.com/en/library/online-catalogue/

I managed to get the English version of the site but sometimes it reverts.

Just sharing it in case anyone is interested, or has any thoughts on it. Apparently Dan Brown donated a lot to the project.

Science / Re: How and why to colonize Venus
« on: February 24, 2020, 12:56:09 pm »
I was going to make a bunch of smart ass replies until I read the article.


But for real, how do we get a freaking 1km balloon of nitrogen-oxygen there? And even if it's rich in minerals GL getting it off the surface, if we an even really get down there in the first place.


There is a game "Space Engineers" (that unfortunately doesn't have the most realistic physics ever :( ) and I had a mod that put a (mostly) to scale Venus with the actual map data from NASA, just with height amplified for playability (since the max planet size in the game is 120km diameter) and dear satan it is freaky and hellish. It even simulates the acidic atmosphere and to a degree the heat, and at least cosmetically, the weather. Fun to fly around on though but extremely dangerous.


I'm just imagining what kind of challenges getting any resources outside of the clouds would be, or how these societies would sustain themselves. At least mars has soil and the surface could be mined fairly straight forwardly. Some might argue to not do this though so that the planets could be studied, and I'd agree that any colonization should be done carefully in areas of no scientific value and not excessively so, so there are still areas of interest to study.

Satanism / Re: Monotheistic Satanism
« on: February 24, 2020, 12:43:10 pm »
As far as "reverse Christianity" I've never encountered an actual Satanist that believes it.


At least someone serious, I've met people on the internet that might or might not be idiots and/or trolls but they didn't seem to know anything about anything and just wanted a good deal in this life not caring about Hell. It was bizarre. Like, to me, "reverse Christian" satanists would still view Satan positively, these people don't, so to me they can't be Satanists. Since they believe in the Christian beliefs, but still see Satan as bad, they are just plain old Christians.

Satanism / Re: Monotheistic Satanism
« on: February 24, 2020, 10:27:24 am »
I don't think it would be accurate to say that pantheism is a form of monotheism since pantheism isn't strictly theistic, and some pantheistic models can allow for various deities to represent that divine essence.


Speaking on the topic, is there a word for a blend of pantheism and polytheism? Kind of like that aforementioned model but with a harder type of polytheism than just aspects of the big G "God". Like, Satan is the canvas, so to speak, but there are fully individualized deities within it's fabric that operate distinct from it. I hope that makes sense.

General LHP Discussion / Re: Do many of you use Baphomet?
« on: February 20, 2020, 03:48:31 am »
I like Baphomet as a representation of my Satanic queerness and metaphyical idea of the union of shiva/shakti into that which I would term Satan :D


Also SFAIK the pronouns for Baphomet has always been he/him/his.


Baphomet represents the union and inter-working of opposites and dualities. Night, day, left, right, below, above, objective and subjective. They are inter-dependent, and I would argue that two sides of the same coin and hence at the most fundamental level nondual, but manifesting as a dualistic mechanism. This is perfectly metaphorical of my beliefs on the matter in general. Baphomet to me is essentially a western occult equivalent of the shiva-shakti tattva. That is which, for a single word, I find "Satan" the most appropriate on an etymological level. It is the opposing, balancing nature of all of existence that births further duality into the complex web of interacting forces that we see in the Universe.

The article details the overwhelming evidence in her favor. It seems it's more the judge than her lawyer. This case being in Alabama they don't exactly take women seriously there.

I guess for me I always thought I would be hesitant, but in a way I was but not when the reality got a little closer. I think as a Satanist I would like to think I'm tough and prepared for anything but the conflict in me was that I am not prepared for jail, I would *not* do well in jail, but that might be true of anyone LHP as we wouldn't fit in well with the group mentality at such a place that's needed to survive.

I also always imagined that killing a human would regardless of the circumstances be a traumatic event for me, but brushing with it, I don't think the killing itself or the physical aftermath would be it (as surreal and unsettling I often find real gore) but rather the crap law enforcement and other people would put me through even if I was in my rights and protecting myself. The police department here is a shoot first ask questions later kind of place, highest police shooting rate in the country. It's a real possibility that if someone shot someone in self defense and called the police to report it, the cops would hear "I shot someone" only and come in guns blazing. A lot of people accused of violent crimes in this town never made it to court, and the FBI has been investigating the local PD here for corruption.

Hell last year I personally met one of the officers that were part of a high profile drug ring that got busted (Logan August I believe, said he found Jesus and turned himself in, I posted about it here a year ago, it was he story about the bible study at star bucks that popped up around me). Last I heard while the feds let him off the state was still after him.

I think it's the difference of calling a friend over and having a conservation with them in your head, if that analogy makes any sense. To channel is to take their idea or "essence" and let it be part of you, whereas evoke is more that it's outside of you but very much present. I don't think an invoked entity is as consciously paying attention to what you are doing since you are kind of "borrowing" it's power. With evoking, it's right there actively doing it itself.

Sadly too you can be perfectly within Stand Your Ground in your state but get a judge who throws it out anyway and you go to court, after spending months in jail:

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/brittany-smith-loses-her-stand-your-ground-hearing


If you are a woman, your chances of getting a Stand your Ground decision are much lower, so I would advise most women only do it as a last resort. She did, and I hope she gets acquitted. That and there are less protections for me living where I do than even her, I wasn't willing to take that risk and ruin my life further by spending even a few months in jail because I only had a grand to my name and no way that was going to make bail for a murder charge.

Lounge / Re: Organizing this Forum
« on: February 09, 2020, 09:02:09 am »
Great discussion. Please continue!

Thoughts around board names/categories if we allow lists of words:


Big Category: THE DARK

"Set, Lucifer, and Other Prometheans"

"Satan, Demons, Loki, and Other Adversaries" (Vampyrism threads could go here)

"Hecate, Kali, and Other Dark Goddesses" (Artemism threads could go here)


Big Category: LABYRINTH

"Thelema, Qabalah, Hermeticism, Golden Dawn"

"Sumerian and Other Pre-Christian Magic"

"Tarot, Runes, Astrology, and Other Divination"


In the above schema, there would be no child boards at all.

Just stirring the pot!


I actually love this, although I think we should rework the titles below the two big catagories (I'd suggest something different for the big category headers but I can't think of anything) but I LOVE the way they are grouped together. It fits perfectly along the same themes, is concise and clean. It just needs a name to reflect that and those could be the descriptions "set, Lucifer and other Prometheans" for example could be the description of some name of that category.


Thelema is not a LHP religion
I haven't encountered many Thelemites online thus far, but most of them seemed like LHPers to me.


The one Thelemite I know in town and have had a few long talks with is much more LHP than RHP and that's also almost always been the case of the ones I knew online too.

Good news, I hope in the long run anyway (as the the landlord seems a little particular about certain things) but I moved into my new place today, so thankfully crazy stuff like that is behind me!
