“Are our waking lives merely insectry, the march of ghouls collecting sensory data that our dreams convert into the product of our lives?” When I wrote that line back in June of…
I’ve never been a horror movie Occultist at all, I’m more of the comic book variety. I want to use my abilities to right wrongs and try my best to adhere to what I refer to as Spider Man morality. Great power, great responsibility, you get the gist.
NEW YEAR’S EVE, somewhere in Florida. My host has finally slipped into his mushroom trip, meaning the tribal drums are being brought out.
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.
ONCE UPON A TIME, I wrote more fiction than anything else. Film noir and surreal horror combined in a genre I thought of as “gothic noir” although publishers describe it as urban fantasy.
Perhaps the fates had finally turned against humanity. What other explanation existed for a mercury retrograde coming right after the most batshit election the American people had ever suffered?
From Modern Mythology: What is so terrifying about clowns? Why do they seem to pop up everywhere sometimes? Over a week now into a supposed “clown scare” — which may or may not be a…
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
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.
A lot of what our brain does is synthesize a hallucination, a model of the world that we proceed to live in. This is a model reality; the real reality is completely…
The nature of reality, human suffering and our understanding of our own existence are among the topics that Seth Leaf Pruzansky discusses in this interview of exploration, awareness and discovery.
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.
What is the nature of suffering? Many people consider suffering in life to be the default state, where their entire life is a series of painful events in a never ending cycle of misery.
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.
Ian Gutoskie is a comedian. Not too long ago he was diagnosed as Bipolar II. Since then, he has incorporated mental health information into his act and website.
