December 9, 2017

If you haven't  noticed, western occultism is at cross-roads.

There are the traditionalists, who keep pushing off on potential initiates the same tired, rather silly talking-points about the Hermetic Principles: mentalism; the principle of correspondences; the theory of polarity; the law of synchronicity; the law of symbolism; the law of this or that.

Pure sophistry.

Magick is change in perception; nothing more and nothing less.

Authors like Christopher Penczak, in The Inner Temple of Witchcraft,  think that they are serving the cause by rehashing the Hermetic points and sprinkling in a few points about contemporary scientific theory & quantum physics into the mix.

They all seem to understand one basic scientific talking point: wave vs. particle.  But nothing else.

Quantum physics is not about waves or particles at all, at least not theoretically.

It is about magick.  And magick is, as I said, change in perception.

My daughter & I put together a presentation that will explain things a bit further.  "H. P. Lovecraft's Cosmic Carnival of Horror."  Take a look & a listen if you haven't already.
