New Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove

The Return of the Magicians
New wave of Magick? Sad and optimistic at the same time.

Long interview with Antero Alli about death, grace, ritual technologies.

>What he did offer was a very RAW examination of some fundamental Crowley concepts. The assigned texts for the course were Crowley’s Book of Lies and also Book of Thoth. Wilson also had recommended texts like The Widow’s Son and various articles, etc.

>You also have many projects that have nothing to do with computer science, such as your musical composition, Fantasia Apocalyptica. You even built your house around a two-story pipe organ. Is this variety also part what makes you happy? I wrote a couple of books, including Things a Computer Scientist Rarely Talks About, that are about theology — things you can’t prove — rather than mathematics or computer science. My life would not be complete if it was all about cut and dried things. The mystical things I don’t understand give me humility. There are things beyond my understanding. >In mathematics, I know when a theorem is correct. I like that. But I wouldn’t have much of a life if everything were doable. This knowledge doesn’t tear me apart. Rather, it ensures I don’t get stuck in a rut.

Rockets and Magick - how do they relate?

Aleister Crowley & William Butler Yeats Get into an Occult Battle, Pitting White Magic Against Black Magic (1900)
Found via [boingboing]( for the summary as well. Those there parties back then!

My knowledge of magick is superficial at best, so I would like to hear what more competent people say. The general question is how (if) magical tools can be practically used to further the cause of anarchist (without adjectives) revolution. The more specific question is, for starters: Does it make sense to view money as a sigil for geas of obedience? And if it does, can we imagine the way to break this bond? Strip money of the power aspect and reduce it to purely technical role of an exchange token?
