Vampyrism / Re: Satan Is A Vampire

Quote from: TSB
Most Satanists do not accept Satan as an anthropomorphic being with cloven hooves, a barbed tail, and horns. He merely represents a force in nature - the powers of darkness which have been named just that because no religion has taken these forces out of the darkness. Nor has science been able to apply technical terminology to this force. It is an untapped reservoir that few can make use of because they lack the ability use a tool without having to first break down and label all the parts which make it run. It is this incessant need to analyze which prohibits most people from taking advantage of this many faceted key to the unknown - which the Satanist chooses to call "Satan."

Given this symbolic definition, it's difficult for me to reconcile Satan as a vampire. "They are vampires; they feed off of you" makes sense ritualistically, but this part is confusing indeed:

Satan himself is a vampire who will reward you only as long as you feed him.

In my mind, "Satan as Vampire" only makes sense for the more extreme Satanisms which are into blood and other forms of sacrifice to a literal Satan.

Took me awhile to track this one down, another good interview:

Man, what a great video, thanks for sharing it @Etu Malku. I've seen some others but not this one, the commentary is great.

It's particularly interesting to me since I had a damn good metalsmithing teacher in high school (back when you could hand a 15-year old a blowtorch). We did all kinds of things.

I still have a couple of silver rings I made pretty much like he did with the centrifugal casting machine that you wind up before letting it rip. As he indicated making a casting is a one-shot deal. Just like life.

Edit: there is a nearly endless photo gallery of his work and studio here:

The O.S.M. page is up on the main site, I edited the statement just slightly and included links etc. Updated the news page as well.

Welcome to the board, use it as you may.

I hope this isn't too far off the subject, but when I was eight, I took an I.Q. test for this "gifted program". I took a newer version of the same test at the age of 21. (The scores were the same, which is weird.)

People use the final scores for stratification purposes (getting into Mensa, etc), but I think that is an incorrect way to use those tests. What is valuable about them is that they help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. Looking at the second column, many facets of intelligence were tested:

I scored high on analytical reasoning, but lousy on social reasoning. So the final metric doesn't really tell the whole tale, and what I learned is that I needed to work on the weakness as I could already be confident in the strengths.

Therefore I agree with what the guy said about balancing ability with challenge. Good video.

In my mind, success requires balancing one's affairs toward remaining absorbed in one's personal work. I think life is too random for perfect balance to be achieved, but perhaps a little can go a long way? I prefer that definition of success over the various big-dick contests that exist in mundane society.

My brain basically went on the fritz and I became shaky and imbalanced. It's getting better but I have to use walkers for awhile until things calm down more.

Has anyone ever had an MRI?. The thing is loud, so they gave me closed-ear headphones and asked what type of music I wanted (I chose classical). You roll into the thing, and it makes these really bizarre noises, beeps, and buzzes. The magnetic fields are so powerful you can feel it in your brain when they go on and off. Certainly one of the stranger experiences I've had.

I'll be a home-body for a few weeks so should be around more.

I've been in the E.R. for a few days. Might still be for a few more.

Dr. Aquino released this to the public several years ago, it's a good read:

I dunno . . . if something cannot be defined, then what is it really? It's nothing.

I bring up the problem of ill-defined terms quite often these days. Remember "context clues"? I think every idea or belief requires something more than just a simple term. If one doesn't frame a picture correctly, people might study the frame instead of the artwork (for better or worse). :)

I think mental health is essential to the Western Left-Hand Path. What do you think?

Dr. Aquino discusses immortality in MindStar (starting p.141).

Edit: why do so many religions focus so much on life after death? Is this a consequence of survival instincts, or something more?
