THEE MANIFESTO Ov OBSERVATIONAL AND OBJECTIVE NIHILISM

damnson“I’ve often thought that there isn’t any ‘I’ at all; that we are simply the means of expression of something else; that when we think we are ourselves, we are simply the victims of a delusion.”

-Aleister Crowley

1. Objects represented not only doubt themselves but thee viewer as well.

2.  Thee object portrayed cannot be said to exist outside its respective representational parameters, and neither can any object represented be said to exist independent ov its material state and aggregated atomic constituents.

3. Thee subject is always abstract. Thee idea is Dependent Origination.

4. Thee object depends entirely upon both the viewer and the material state, as well as the assembler in order to be a possible scenario in existence, and yet even as it is, the object does not actually exist but is merely an abstract representation ov a physical thing, which also cannot be said to exist, both functionally outside the realm of perception, and as a collective assembly not independent ov the material space which it is a part.… Read the rest

Let me just begin by stating that I was once one to subscribe to just about any belief system which claimed to have an esoteric model that could coincide with contemporary physical theory. However, as time has progressed and I grow gradually older and more skeptical, I’ve come to disregard nearly everything that mashes up buzzwords like “quantum” with any new age or occult idea. Where I once sought to justify my esoteric practices with at least some sort of reasonably functioning model of reality (perhaps due to my insecurity as a developing magician) I have come to realize that magick needs no apologetics to function within the world I exist in. While I see drawn out explanations for consciousness or paranormal occurrences such as the one seen in Peter Caroll’s “Apophenion” as useful to some who may have difficulty with the “suspension of disbelief” aspect of Chaos Magick, I feel that it detracts from the real core of the work, which to me is learning by experience.… Read the rest
