Instagramomancy (the algorithmic feed)

A controversial but fairly old feature of Instagram is the algorithmic feed. The website looks at what you've liked, and instead of displaying posts in chronological order, tries to give you things it thinks you will continue to like. I am a typically phone-addicted millennial so I figured I might a...

Re: enchantments for money

I recently read a book that goes very in depth on this, Chaos Protocols by Gordon White. If you can get a copy (it's very affordable as a digital book on Amazon) it's great. As Microcosm said, it's usually better to enchant for what you want the money for ("I go to school in America") rather than fo...

Non-Evoking Evocation

I'm wondering how much certain practices work off the principles of evocation without intentionally being an evocation. Do you think things like religious visions, Marian apparitions, UFO encounters, etc. are a form of evocation? I wonder because I see a lot of occultists eventually getting interest...

A psychological Hermetic paradigm

A Psychological-Hermetic Paradigm In the early 20th century, a famous text summarized the principles of the ancient Hermetic alchemical philosophies: the Kybalion. It enumerates seven principles of the universe, by which it claims all magick works. Around the same time, the field of psychology was ...

Re: Last Podcast on the Left

More podcasts! Rune Soup is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSBWlUCinBE Then found this interview with the host of Rune Soup, looked up the host of this one, who was really considerate and intellectual, and learned he was a pornstar.

Re: Introducing: The Random Belief Generator, a community project

Added, with some edits. Notably, the things that are activities rather than belief systems, like "divination," didn't really fit well so I didn't add them. I also couldn't really find a good way to say "Draconian pathism."

Introducing: The Random Belief Generator, a community project

I was talking earlier with Vap0rwar3, and we came up with the idea of a "random belief generator." It smashes together two arbitrary belief descriptors to make a new, randomly selected paradigm. I banged up a proof of concept, attached to this post. It's not pretty. And it's very very small, with on...
