Admittedly, that’s more than a bit of a click bait headline, but underneath it lies a legitimate inquiry about the nature of human psychology.

Daemons Don’t Hang Out in Pizza Shops, They Live in the Darkest Reaches of Your Repressed Imagination
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since the last piece I tossed up about the terrifying stupidity of pizzagate, it’s that people reeeeeeaaaaaaalllly want to believe the world is secretly controlled by sadistic Illuminati Occultists.
A few people asked me what I thought about the supposed Marina Abramovic scandal a few weeks back when it hit and I was just sort of like, ummm, what scandal?
I’m sure some people here have by now read the Cracked.com listicle by David Wong, How Half of America Lost Its Fucking Mind. I mean, at this point it’s been clicked on over 9 million…
I make no bones about the fact that before being summoned into sigil projection strangeness, the sexual element of the whole endeavor is precisely what kept me away to an extent.
People are so indoctrinated towards “Go team!” style sports nationalism in politics by now that this position confuses them to no end. So, you’re anti-republican? Yes. Well, both sides are just as bad, how can you stand by the democrats?
What I suppose differentiates me from most people I’ve found in say magick circles is that my practice, and the practice I’m recommending here revolves more around the ritualistic use of marijuana specifically, which I almost jokingly refer to as ganj-i-tation
In total WTF news, apparently Arby’s has decided to invoke everyone’s favorite preternaturally vague Thelemite motto in a recent social media marketing campaign:
Ahhh Football season. The crisp feel of fall winds and the sound of drunkenness in the afternoon. There is absolutely nothing more distinctly and disturbingly American than football culture.
I mean, it’s not super tough to diagnose what went wrong with R.A.W. as far as spiritual progress goes. To advance in this capacity, you have to shut off the part of your mind that’s been imprinted with the idea that western atheistic scientism is the only means of understanding reality.
I’ve been a long time fan of Robert Anton Wilson, but in truth I hadn’t read any of his books in nearly a decade before I had an “alien contact” encounter back in 2010 where his name was mentioned specifically.
Festival 23 is an interactive celebration of literature and the arts, of theatre, playshops and music inspired by the Discordian movement. It will be an Experience. A ritual for ritual’s sake.
Before I started practicing magick, I chalked up concepts of angelick and daemonic or light and dark forms of spiritual energy in the category of ridiculous shit I learned in church.
Part I, Part II, Part III Hmmm, how’s the best way to put this? Delving into things like the Occult and astral projection has lead me into some experiences where I’m just…
What’s critical is that in the few magick books I’ve actually read, the emphasis was always on technique and not purpose. In my experience, this is a fairly huge oversight as I don’t think technique necessarily means a whole lot and intent is pretty much everything.
While reading volume I of this series (here if you missed it) some people might have wondered where the advanced sigil projection title was coming from as I didn’t write much about…
All consciousness is interconnected, which is why magick works. It really is that simple and again, this reality has actually been scientifically proven (then conveniently slandered as pseudoscience and ignored).
My new book, Transmissions From Outside of Time, is sort of a “year in the psychic life” documentation of how utterly strange the process of Knowledge and Conversation with one’s Holy Guardian…
Probably the coolest website I’ve stumbled upon in the last 6 months or so has been the Secret Sun blog, which showcases the genius level writing of metaphysical pop cultural synchromystic Chris…
Of course in the title there I’m talking about a personal transition as I’m sure chaos magick will live on in some capacity for quite some time. Hell, it’s probably bigger than…
Join me as I rant about my new book and the merging of technology and mysticism.
Is Transmissions From Outside of Time the Head Trippiest Channeled Magick Book of All Time? You Be the Judge!
In 2012 I finally had to come to terms with something mind bendingly peculiar. I’d initiated what classic Occultists refer to as knowledge and conversation with my Holy Guardian Angel
Truth? This isn’t really an article I wanted to write at all. The problem is that I’ve unfortunately received constant questions soliciting advice in regards to how to best curse people over the years.
It’s an odd conundrum, and I’m not one to just say that psychedelic drugs are the answer to all the world’s ills. Clearly they’re not, the problem is our workaholic culture in the first place
It’s that time of year again: the time where I remind everyone just how rapidly consciousness has been evolving in such an amazingly short period of time. The good news there is…
