7:59 am - Goetic dreams

mr_mewn
Has anyone tried connecting with Goetics through dreams? I've been experimenting with this idea lately, with some interesting results. After one evocation, I placed the seal under my pillow, made my intent for a dream contact, and went to sleep. I ended up in a house with what seemed to be Goetics in human form with their seals on the faces. Another time, I cast a circle while lying down and visualized the seal, made my intent known and had a very lucid dream. It was a strange place, and once the Goetic and I came in contact with each other, we had a brief (and pleasant) conversation. I'm planning on more experimenting with this.

So... anyone try this? Any thoughts or input?

7:49 am - VTI: Are You At Risk?

sammhain


VTI, or visually transmitted infection, is a weaponized version of information transfer developed by the group calling itself Cell 144. Through both specifically designed images and engineered text Cell 144 have been introducing an organism into the populace. Each day this infection spreads more widely as the organism better learns to mimic memetic propagation. The organism is described by Cell 144 as "..the hyperdimensional analog to the prokaryotic organisms which gave rise to our mitochondria."1 Infected individuals begin to develop new hyperdimensional structures, a process which may lead to any or all of the following:

Increased luck.

General Confusion.

Increased awareness and limited control over time's nonlinear functions.

Gnosis.

Loss of specific memories and/or the sudden realization of seemingly altered or completely new memories.

Occasional blackouts accompanied by the sensation of missing time.


As the hyperdimensional structures develop infected individuals report a decrease in their earlier unease. Many victims also reported bouts of euphoria. A desire to confront past traumas and proactively address problematic decisions and behaviors is not uncommon. This process has been described as "...following your pain...", and "Killing off the parts that aren't really you".2 Infected individuals eventually report conscious awareness of a symbiotic relationship with the developing organism. This sense of symbiosis tends to lead to an increased desire to cooperate/co-create, especially with other infected individuals. Anti-authoritarian sentiment begins to increases as the facade of hierarchical authoritarian structure's inevitability, desirability, and practicality becomes increasingly transparent.

This PSA is brought to you by Cell 144 and Tesseract Technologies who would like to remind you that you have just been targeted by a VTI attack. Congratulations! You are on your way to becoming both an engine of the destruction of our current diseased reality and an engineer of the New Eden which will replace it.

Interested in helping our efforts?

Please forward this VTI document anywhere you see fit, or for more information concerning our ongoing efforts please consult:

Hyperdimensional art for a world in dire need of an apocalypse. The site is still in its infancy, but it's grown up enough to promote. Right now everything up is written by me (some pieces, however, are a collaborative effort), but we've got some additional contributors lined up, so keep an eye out for that.

2:49 pm - A Disease Far Better Than The Cure

sammhain
New article up at foolishpeople.com

Part hypersigil, part true story:

Excerpt:

"Something happened on Sunday November 8th, 1992 at 1:44pm according to a very old and very nice Waltham Pocket Watch; something that has guided nearly every choice I have made since. J had been willed that watch by an elderly woman who neither J nor anyone in her immediate family had ever met, but who claimed in the note accompanying the watch, to be a long estranged family member. Three days after a man who wore his suit like a bullet proof vest delivered the watch to J she phoned me. That November had rolled in like the last train home finally reaching the station, and so though I probably should have been surprised to get that call from J, who I had not seen or heard from in the two years since the incident at reservoir number one in Framingham Massachusetts, I was not surprised in the least. The conversation was brief and without the usual soporific emotional pretenses people indulge in when they run into old friends they haven’t seen in whatever passes for a long time in their minds. J is not a cliché; she is laughter in the mausoleum. “Meet me at the red brick building across from the reservoir in two hours.” and then dial tone. "

7:05 pm - Foolishpeople.com Introduces....

sammhain
Me!

I was recently asked by the artistic director of The Foolish People, John Harrigan, to be a writer for their website. I'll be contributing at least an article a month (more when I'm feeling industrious or have something special to say) to the site. The subject of all these articles will have to do with time/hyperdimensional magick. Though I'm certainly far from a Thelemite, my work with this subject could aptly enough be described as my Great Work. This is something of a match made in heaven for me. I have the utmost respect for John as an artist, a magician and indeed as a human being; my respect for what The Foolish People do as a unit is likewise immense. I am absolutely privileged and honored to have been offered this opportunity.

With all the gushing out of the way...

My first article is up now and can be read here.

Additionally you may be interested in the very kind words John had to say about me here.

12:49 am - Mom's coming round ...

amaz0n
Hello. I recently joined, by way of the esteemed sammhain.

As an introduction, I will tell you fine folks about something that happened to me on the Winter Solstice of this year, exactly eight days ago now. I easily count this as one of the most major events in my life as an occult practitioner.

On the morning of the Winter Solstice, I saw Eris, in the flesh, in the parking lot outside a 7-11.

Every word of this story is completely true. This is how it went down:

11:37 am - OTW (and vague) question re TOPY

ulbh
I've been preparing a kind of metamagical working (one I'm not ready to report on), and this morning, I had a vivid, looping dream about TOPY which was supposed to have been relevant to the work in progress somehow. In the dream, there was a reference to a sub-organization characterized by cells of four, and an insistence that something about the very early history of TOPY was A Big Clue for me.

This doesn't make a lot of waking-world sense, but since I never spent much time reading TOPY stuff or paying attention to them, beyond "thee" occasional chuckle at people posting on magical fora in TOPY-cant, I figured it wouldn't do to dismiss it.

Anyway, I've been picking through some of the available writings, and thought maybe someone here could point me to early stuff of possible relevance (even though no one will know the relevance until I "Aha!" it).

Hello to you!
Im just starting my novitiate into the IOT and Im having issues with some of the meditation that I will need to be doing.
 

I normaly go dancing to meditate but now I have to try to be still and silent.
This will be interesting!

I know this is a kind of lame question but, What do you do for your own meditation?
Im hoping to find some suggestions that go beyond the basics of sit down and shut up...

10:28 pm - N00b alert!

tidestrike
Hail and salutes! I'm new--not only to this community but to k/chaos magic/k in general. I've recently returned from Ireland, where I failed to find what I thought I was looking for, and I've begun to realize (after about 9 years of trying) that the more "traditional" routes may not be what works best for m'self. So I'm looking into things that, for whatever reason, I avoided or never considered in the past.

I understand the concept of reality as a product of individual perception in theory, but am finding it a bit difficult to pursue in practice. =\ I'm trying to remedy that, as well as give the whole continuous radical paradigm shift thing a shot. I'll be honest: I find it all somewhat frightening.

Er, anyway, that's me, hello, looking forward to getting to know y'all and leaching info from your brains like some sort of biotrophic parasite. And that was my ultra-awkward, clumsily concluded introduction.

1:58 pm - Tokyo vows to continue to kill humpback whales

sighris
I would like to know how you (my LJ ChaosCurrent friends) feel abouit this:

Tokyo vows to continue cull of humpback whales
By David McNeill in Alaska
Published: 30 May 2007

Japan has vowed to press on and kill 50 humpback whales later this year in defiance of conservationists and anti-whaling nations.

Britain joined New Zealand, Australia and other "like-minded" nations to condemn the plan in Anchorage, Alaska, where the annual conference of the International Whaling Commission opened on Monday.

"This will really adversely affect the image of Japan in our countries, " said New Zealand's Environment minister, Chris Carter.

Japanese whaling ships intend to kill the humpbacks in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary as part of its "scientific whaling" programme. The ships will also hunt hundreds of minke, sei, sperm and fin whales.

The humpback is classed by most environmentalists as one of the planet's more imperiled species, but not by Japan's Fisheries Agency. "We don't see it as endangered," said Joji Morishita, Tokyo's alternate IWC commissioner. "Our surveys suggest that in some areas humpback stocks are increasing."

12:00 am - Furthering Education and Community (x-posted)

starlitsorcerer
I'm from Southeastern MA and looking to check out any postmodern magic communities in MA or RI. I may be interested in going further if I can find good enough institutions. I got my hopes up for a few minutes when I saw advertisements for Arcanorium College, but all the links brought me to a dead website. Are there any actual magick colleges for any path? Even magician friends would be welcome. Please comment or e-mail me if you have helpful info (justroc84 at yahoo). Thanks. ^^
