Liber Null and the Psychonaut: An introduction to chaos magic (PDF) : fifthplateau
Nihilism Late Atheism Material causality is everything. Our dual nature is all morality; it is foolish to be other than we are. The projection of the double is the basis of deliberately carrying things over into a new incarnation at death.
Want to add to the discussion? These ripples tirough space and time can only be received if they strike a note of resonance in the receiver and are not drowned out by noise or suppressed by the psychic sensor. The discovery of one’s true will or real nature may be difficult and fraught psyhonaut danger, since a false identification leads to obsession and madness.
About half way through the book it starts bumping into subjects I don’t know, or the terminology is too segregated from my own thought process that I can’t follow. The process is rather like ilber deliberate creation of an obsession.
When you’re not you any more, anything can be done, or something along those lines.
Only laughter can be gotten away with for free. The nature of a sexual working lends itself readily to the creation of independent orders of being — evocation.
Dice Option Number 3: He has bound himself to earth forever and reincarnates at will. Figure 9 on page 78 shows us that the root of every emotion is always its opposite. If you stop doing something evil God will be pleased.
Kia is nascent energy seeking form. At first the image should be sought with the eyes closed. Postulating the subjective ,iber of each individual’s ego, Peter J.

You will not get very far if you follow others. Nevertheless, since time immemorial magicians have been smearing themselves with pastes compounded from the solanaceae alkaloids, thomapple, nightshade and henbane, and consuming various other hallucinogens and trance inducing drugs as well, just for this purpose.
Eventually he will find that the double actually is at the desired location. The beliefs are gven in order, with Number 1 understood to follow on from Number 6 in a circle. A visualized shape will do. If your mind is stuck in familiar ruts, this book might be a good place to go “off road”.
I wasn’t terribly impressed with this book at the time I read it, although it does contain some interesting material. Drawing blood from his right shoulder with a dagger, he traces the sigil of Mars on his breast and the Eye of Horns on his brow. Our name is multiple. With extreme caution he may take small quantities of atropine -like solanum 42 alkaloids. So frustrated that you’re whole world breaks apart and nothing make sense or has any meaning anymore. This is accomplished in a number of stages: This is an abominably difficult path to tread.
To be truly alive is to assume the impossible and live by it.
Only the greatest determination can win even a few seconds of mental silence, but even this is quite a triumph. All that can be said of Kia is that the amount of amd one experiences is proportional to Kia’s manifestation in one’s circumstances.
There should be a constant turning of the mind toward the object of the exercise during these practices. However, the power to control blood sacrifice usually brings with it the wisdom to avoid it in favor of other methods.
Carroll offers up an interesting look at the rituals of the Initiates of Thanateros–a postmodern occult group that traces their lineage back to prehistoric shamans and the Western esoteric tradition as a whole. For this reason Sufi mystics were required to master a handful of secular trades in addition to their occult studies. So here I am looking at something that seems silly at the best, but I’m curious about trying a new perspective on things.
In the same way that mass exists as a curvature in space-time, extending with a gradually diminishing force to infinity that we recognize as gravity, so do all events, particularly events involving the human mind, send ripples through all creation. For me, it was a rather dry read with little new that tended to race through the more important subjects and leap to speculative areas. However, it does a good job as a primer for those persistent enough to make it to the end.
The hedonist rapidly falls back into indulging progressively more poisonous, revolting, and debilitating pleasures to provoke a reaction from his exhausted senses. The second is a specific against obsession with the magical practices in the third section. The most powerful teaching in this book, I think, is Sigil Magick — which may have originated with another occultist named AO Spare. A natural inclination toward the darker side of magic is as good a point as any from which to begin the ultimate quest, and half this book is devoted to the black arts.
I’m not finished with the book, but to me it seems the point is to dissolve your ego. It is only the fear that it is neither which imprisons us.
Subculture values will proliferate to such a bewildering extent that a whole new class of professionals will arise to control them. Any form of magical trance can be adapted for divination by first directing an intense concentration toward the desired matter of divination or some sigilized form of it and then allowing impression to arise into the Vacuous state of consciousness.
For without the flesh, Kia has no mirror for itself, and there is no awareness, no ecstacy, nothing. While motionless and breathing 14 deeply, begin to withdraw the mind from any thoughts which arise. Therefore, when selecting topics for concentration, choose subjects of no spiritual, egotistical, intellectual, emotional, or useful significance — meaningless things.
