An interesting look into magic, religion and science, but actually also about neoliberal fundamentalism and the parallels between the internet and print with the witch trials of Salem and elsewhere. Magic is about hoping for more then the authoprities allow, so it is rebellious, insubordinate and entrepreneurial. But it is also dangerous and entails great risk. Society might be more like large scale religions or science that more or less say "This is all there is" so don't look further, but in this allow a reassurance that allows something fresh and unpredictable to emerge.

"Magic appeals to the authority of demonstrable results rather than established hierarchies, even if these results remain promised rather than realised. It is not just a debating point to suggest that certain aspects of modern economic theory work remarkably like ancient and Renaissance magic, appealing to uncertainly charted forces in nature and confidently predicting results that are not always prompt in appearing. If we are baffled by the intellectual respectability of magic in earlier days, it may be il... show more
 
The student looked puzzled at the schedule:
- Why so many gym sessions? I thought magic was all about knowledge?
The hefty teacher smiled:
- This isn’t Theoretical Magic here, if you magically hurl a rock boulder, you will be subjected to the counter force, physics laws still apply. Better be in shape if you don’t want to be limited to pebbles.
And, with a wink:
- Also helps with dating!

#CoS 9 3: On entropy, causality and time

At a certain layer of macro physics, for example, we observe irreversible phenomenas, events where we cannot go back.
VISUALIZE glass breaking
VISUALIZE an egg crashing.
These are irreversible processes and you will only observe them going one way. Entropy and the thermodynamical saying that “entropy always increases” maps to the fact that time only flows one way. There exists a link between entropy and time. Many, if not most equations of physics remain uncha... show more

Autumn brings gold leaves


Okay, cannot postpone it anymore. Time to start the gold leafing (leaving?) part of my project. May gods guide my hands, because I turn into the opposite of Midas during Venus retro and I don't have much 23k leaf to waste.

In the meantime, have a gilded Buddhist monk:

Witch Bottle


My wish list is growing longer by the day. Now I positively need a Bellarmine bottle replica (or 2, or 3...one never knows when an entire coven of angry instagram witches might strike). Now, the only issue is where to hide them; I'm running out of good spots. This magician's proverbial closet is starting to overflow...

The Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals





Workable take on (pseudo) Johannes Trithemius' "The Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals" scrying device, as presented by Barrett in the 2nd volume of "The Magus". The object is on display at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, Cornwall (UK).

There are some deviations from the original instructions, such as replacing the crystal sphere with a gold-framed black mirror. There is no table of practice associated with it and the back of the object cannot be seen for further comment, but I think it's a serviceable enough device in the right hands. I would definitely not mind to have it in my collection 😀

Museum's description of the object available below:

Interesting lecture on the practice of apotropaic (protection) magic in Ireland.

Witch bottles, iron, horse shoes and the ongoing spiritual battle of women to protect hearth and home from invaders.

A lot of Western magicians stole or appropriated Indian tricks, says John Zubrzycki, author of a book on the history of Indian magic.
I used to see a lot of magicians when I was in India in the late 1970s, but the encounter I remember most was outside Alipurduar railway station in 1979 when I saw the basket trick being performed. A young boy climbed into a round basket and an old man chanted incantations and plunged a sword through the wicker. The blade came out bloody but the boy later emerged unscathed. It was quite spectacular. Later, I realised that a lot of Western magicians were appropriating Indian costumes and tricks in the early 20th century. Even Harry Houdini started his career posing as a ‘Hindu fakir’.
