Magick is All in My Head? Think Again!

sacredsigilsservitor3Okay, so you’re probably getting bored with hearing about my book (The Galactic Dialogue: Occult Initiations, out now!) at this point, so this will be the second to last in my five part series (symbolizing the five sides of the pentagram) of posts on it. Of course last week if you were watching you heard me rant about my “Summoning my Holy Guardian Angel/Alien Contact” experience, but that is only one of many ultra-strange tales contained in the living book’s pages. This might be the strangest. It’s funny but when critics tell me that magick is crazy, I say “exactly.” When they say that it’s just my imagination, I say “precisely the point.” Materialist science still hasn’t explained what the hell is going on with things like schizophrenia. (Why do nearly all schizophrenics see daemons?) Furthermore, the boundaries of the human imagination have yet to be explored or defined.

But when critics say that it’s all in my head I have to resoundingly say, well, no.… Read the rest

When Nitrous Tears a Rift Into the Sex Dimension

youbelongtothecity4Due to illness, your psychoactive sermon on Occult alien contact will air next week. In the interim, I thought I’d run this fun anecdote about unintentionally tearing a hole through the subjective time space continuum by means of nitrous inhalation. Why am I posting this?

Well for one, my new book is basically my magickal origin story/journal and this happened long before I ever started trying to do this sort of thing on purpose. Two, a couple of people have asked me about the use of nitrous in magickal work in the past and it’s not something I’ve put a ton of effort into (have maybe done it 4 times in the past decade), but I certainly have some odd stories from my hard partying past. The fact that buying nitrous is legal by some odd technicality in the drug war goes well beyond being slightly nutter. Any 18 year old kid can get this shit, we used to at the mall.… Read the rest

The Galactic Dialogue is the Most Potent Hypersigil Head Trip Since The Invisibles and It’s Out Now!

GalacticCoverOkay, if you’re a bit suspicious of me shit talking my own book in the headline, one reader on Amazon who found it even though it wasn’t technically out yet had this to say:

“Reading the words gleamed [sic] from this hypersigil of a book will tear down the veil and hand you a pair of 4th dimensional binoculars.”

Good times, and truthfully the only reason I’m comparing it to The Invisibles in the first place has to do with me accidentally putting it out on the 20th anniversary of its release and all. Well, and the whole Occult “alien” thing. Here’s the part where I try to sell you on it with words:

It could be said that I didn’t choose the Occult, the Occult chose me. It’s a long story and you’ll have to read the book, but let’s just say that some sort of fifth dimensional weirdo showed up in my room one day and broke a primal thought sequence deep within me.… Read the rest

Say You Want a Revolution: The Invisibles Started 20 Years Ago

invisiblesWhen people ask me what my favorite pieces of psychedelic literature from the last 20 years are, I immediately tell them Graham Hancock’s Supernatural and Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles without even having to think twice about it. Of course, I’m not sure if anyone I’ve ever told this has actually taken my advice and read either one, but I’ll just keep repeating it in the off hope that at least one person will have their mind blown by the genius of either one of those epics. When people ask me for suggestions regarding books about magick, The Invisibles immediately jumps to the top of my list. This usually leads to someone arguing with me and informing me that The Invisibles isn’t an instruction manual on how to do magick to which I reply, that’s exactly the point. Since you can sum up basic sigil magick techniques in a few paragraphs, and chaos magick was supposed to be about pushing these techniques forward and creatively fitting them to your subjective microverse, I have zero idea why books regurgitating technique are even of much value at this point.… Read the rest

Ritual Magic, Mind Control, and the UFO Phenomenon

crystal forestI’m sort of late to this party, but I’ve just recently become aware of the writings of Adam Gorightly, mainly because he contacted me on Facebook (friend me) and sent me some books. Anyway, I’m going to try and get him in for an interview regarding his most recent work regarding the history of Discordianism, but in perusing his website I found this gem of a rant. Really ties in with my book, The Galactic Dialogue: Occult Initiations which is finally coming out here on September 23rd. Fans of Cosmic Trigger and the Invisibles rejoice. Anywho, I’m sure most Disinfonauts are probably familiar with this material, but it’s always fun to revisit.

It was not long after my own encounter with strange aerial phenomenon that I began to see a link between UFOs to such seemingly disparate topics as psychedelics, psychotronics, and ritual magick. As the years pass, the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) makes far less sense to the observer than other theories ranging from mind control conspiracies or — on the other hand — fissures in the space-time continuum which provide a portal of entry for ghostly apparitions that can be saucer-shaped or even take on the form of Moth-Men, Chupacabras or the Blessed Virgin Mary.… Read the rest

James Randi’s “Evidence” Against ESP Turns Out to Be Fabricated

James-Randi-LIAR

Some Disinfonauts might recall that last month I posted a rather scathing commentary in regards to the career of blow-hard skeptical debunker James Randi. Of course I hope people realize that I write polemic rants like this to reflect the negativity that the closed minded “skeptical” community, hardline materialist types, and religious people alike have been directing at anyone with alternate spiritual practices for the vast majority of recorded history. We deal with this condescension constantly and to pretend there isn’t a bias against things like Shamanism, the Occult, or Psi is sort of like pretending there’s no homophobia or misogyny, or that racism is just a thing of the past. For the record, we’re not talking about a fictional “sky-god” but rather the potentiality of the human imagination. It’s incredibly bizarre how many people desperately want to believe that this potentiality doesn’t exist and will eat up anything that reinforces this deeply held belief no matter how short on facts or evidence their claims happen to be.… Read the rest

Super Happy Comments Funtime!

hypnotogeometry1Hey Thad, where are the regularly scheduled rants that we’ve become accustomed to over the last year or so? Well, I decided several weeks back I should probably actually put the finishing touches on the book I wrote that’s coming out next month (if all goes right) and that maybe I should wrap that up before I spend more of my time ranting at y’all. They’ll be back here soon, and you know what else? Video rants all Lee Camp style. As far as I can tell, the problem with my writing is that no one reading it can tell how ridiculously good looking I am (riiiiight). I mean, how are gay dudes supposed to masturbate to an internet article? How are women supposed to make weird scrapbooks with hearts around me while jotting down the names of our future children? This needs to be resolved and so I’m buying a decent video camera here soon to do just that.… Read the rest

Why Isn’t There a Popular Theory of Dark Mind in Psychology?

darkmindservitorThe more I’ve rocketed my personal microverse to the outer fringes with various Occult exploration techniques, the more I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re spiritually retarded as a species. And let me define what I mean by spirituality quite clearly here. Of the spirit. Dreams, visions, hallucinations, synchronicities, etc. The opposite of materialism essentially. Spirit. It’s right in the fucking word. All of our brains do this primal reality creating trick to a certain extent. And when I say that we’re spiritually retarded I’m not just using the term for insensitive comedic effect. I actually think it’s an apt metaphor. Those we derogatorily refer to as retarded are often defined by the more PC “developmentally disabled” and in a way, I think that’s what’s going on with us. On one hand we’ve developed the logical mathematic side of ourselves at a freakishly rapid clip, but on the other, we’re still starting wars based on interpretations of visions that supposedly happened thousands of years ago.… Read the rest

Growing Up with John E. Mack

JOHNMACKShould be noted that the day after I posted my critique of Carl Sagan’s The Demon Haunted World, in which I defended the work of the late Harvard psychiatrist John E. Mack, Aeon magazine posted an interesting article by Alexa Clay about growing up with him as her surrogate step dad:

“But as a kid largely ignorant of grander sociological forces, aliens were only one thing: scary. They had large black eyes and androgynous forms. And they were real — like ghosts and witches and monsters. In daylight, I was sceptical (the good little rationalist), but night-time brought with it a tide of magical thinking. I used to lie in bed and worry that maybe I would be abducted. I would even make supplicating promises of better behaviour in the hope of bartering with these outsiders — ‘I’ll be good, just leave me alone.’ In my secular progressive household, aliens offered a moral disciplining authority, an invisible spectator to police my actions.… Read the rest
