Hi, I'm Borislav. People call me Boris. I know what you think though, but I'm not "that guy". I usually use my pen name, which weirdly enough happens to be Bóriwulf. I'm a heathen lad from the Balkans. Born and raised in Bulgaria. A bibliophile-polymath, also a devoted long-time Tolkien reader and a Middle-earth archeologist. I also like all things Medieval, pre-Christian and related to Paganism. I'm also crazy about Maps and Dragons. I am a researcher into the The Occult and the History of Western Magic and Esotericism, a dedicated Fortean and a self-thought experimental musician. Sometimes I fool myself that I am a great artist, and I do draw things occasionally, scribble or design a graphic, but on the other hand I comfort myself that I sit quite comfortably being a writer. I also make videos and upload them on that strange CIA controlled platform called YouTube. I like to think of myself as a simple blogger, but it seems to me that people like reading long descriptions and bios of people since the dawn of man. I have a rather strange taste for Art and I'm heavily addicted to Country Music. What else is there to say? Well, obviously a lot, but I won't burden you with my hero's journey life quest. That was rather lengthy introduction already, but I assure you, that the world will not end after you read these lines. Aeons ago, people used to call us Shamans and Sorcerers, but now we’re just creative people on the internet. I mostly write and sometimes edit articles on the interwebs, whenever I can, or if I can find more of that precious and illusory resource we mortals call - time.
Regarding my musical approach, I don’t play any ”physical” instrument per se, (apart from synthesizers), but when I deal with music I mostly experiment with raw sounds constructed in a software. To put it simply, I make music on a computer. The process can sometimes vary from digital synthesizers, synthetic guitars, field recordings, drum or machine loops, spoken words, and not your usual sources. Most of my inspiration comes from various things like; Nature, books, fantasy, philosophy, mythology, history, the occult and the history of magic, and from many other fields and sources. I make Dark Ambient music with a strong Industrial, and rather experimental feel to it, although I am not in any way promoting any political or new age ideas. Not at all. If I could describe the music I make, it would be something along those lines; Avant-garde electronic music with strong occult, magical and strange nuances. Names and labels are arbitrary to begin with, and I personally prefer not to classify my music and frame it for the sake of it. Instead I prefer to keep the idea simple, clean and open for interpretations.
THE SCIENCE AND ART OF CAUSING CHANGE TO OCCUR IN CONFORMITY WITH WILL
“Magic in its earliest form is often referred to The Arte. I believe this is completely literal... Indeed to cast a spell is simply to spell, to manipulate words, to change people's consciousness.... In latter times I believe artists and writers have allowed themselves to be sold down the river. They have accepted the prevailing belief that art and writing are merely forms of entertainment... they're not seen as transformitive forces that can change a human being... they are seen as simple entertainment... things with which we can fill twenty minutes, half an hour, while we're waiting to die."
“Much of magic as I understand it in the Western occult tradition is the search for the Self, with a capital S. This is understood as being the Great Work, as being the gold the alchemists sought, as being the Will, the Soul, the thing we have inside us that is behind the intellect, the body, the dreams. The inner dynamo of us, if you like. Now this is the single most important thing that we can ever attain, the knowledge of our own Self. And yet there are a frightening amount of people who seem to have the urge not just to ignore the Self, but actually seem to have the urge to obliterate themselves. This is horrific, but you can almost understand the desire to simply wipe out that awareness, because it’s too much of a responsibility to actually posses such a thing as a soul, such a precious thing. What if you break it? What if you lose it? Mightn’t it be best to anesthetize it, to deaden it, to destroy it, to not have to live with the pain of struggling towards it and trying to keep it pure? I think that the way that people immerse themselves in alcohol, in drugs, in television, in any of the addictions that our culture throws up, can be seen as a deliberate attempt to destroy any connection between themselves and the responsibility of accepting and owning a higher Self and then having to maintain it.”

The primary purpose of Magick and Sorcery is to alter the subatomic fabric of reality, and how we experience the material world, as a more active rather than passive state. To use the modern term of “hacking the matrix”, or to make reality somewhat optional.

In Chaos Magic we treat Belief as a Tool of Magic, rather than as an end in itself.
Thoughts are not Facts. Belief attracts Confirmation.
Nothing has Ultimate Truth. Anything Remains Possible.
Of course in a probability based universe such as this, some things remain more possible than others.
Magic is always the tactic of last resort for those who refuse to give up hope. You do not summon Cthulhu to help you find the TV remote. You only visit the witch at the end of the village when all other options have been explored, for she is the loan shark of the Gods.
— Gordon White
Study the history of Magic and The Occult. Don’t be afraid of them! It’s absolutely crucial for us to understand that. Those in politics, media, entertainment, organised religion and commerce use magic 24/7 against us. The Psychopathic Control Grid never sleeps! Get familiar and read and study the works of Aleister Crowley, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Colin Wilson, Terence Mckenna, Robert Anton Wilson, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Peter J. Carroll, Graham Hancock, Whitley Strieber, Anthony Peake, H.P. Lovecraft, Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. Delve into the psychology and discover the undiscovered!
An appropriate statement here from Thomas Sheridan’s book “Defeated Demons” can serve to illustrate this very well:
“The reason for this is simple: if we are aware of the nature of the all-invasive attempts at mind control by the Psychopathic Control Grid, then we can cultivate an equally powerful sense of psychological immunity resulting in a better quality of life and a greater sense of independence. We can enjoy a quality of personal security and contentment which no other prescription-scribbling psychiatrist can prescribe. Adepts of this knowledge can concentrate on the things in life which bring joy and fulfilment, rather than on the things we are told we lack by advertising and mass media.”
And also a quote from Gordon White’s excellent book “The Chaos Protocols”:
“Properly used, magic will destroy your life. This is a feature, not a bug. Ever since modern humans first emerged into full consciousness those who worked with spirits, be they shamans or witches or magicians, moved into their final function only after some kind of Otherworld trauma experience. Some event has to occur that provides the magician with a lasting, visceral, unshakable knowing that the universe extends beyond what can be physically observed. “

No “troofer” attitude or “space brothers” fanaticism. Food for thought and down to earth discussions.
My main project can be found below:
If it can be said that everything; chaos, darkness, anathema, can be reduced to a mathematical formula, then man will go insane on purpose to have no judgement, and to behave as he likes. I believe this, because it appears that man’s whole business it to prove that he is a man and not a cog-wheel. And perhaps, who knows, the striving of man on earth may consist in this uninterrupted striving for something ahead, that is, in life itself, rather than some “real” end which obviously must be a static formula of the same kind as two and two make four. I am sure that man will never renounce the genuine suffering that comes from ruin and chaos. Why, suffering is the one and only source of knowledge. What I must stand for is my own personal free will and knowledge, and what it can do for me when I am in the right mood to use it. I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man’s. I will not reason and compare: my business is to create!
I don’t believe in absolutes. There is no absolute truth in the universe. There are only polar opposites and causality. Nothing has ultimate truth. Anything remains possible. This is the nature of the universe. There is no escape from it. CHAOS brings ORDER and ORDER brings CHAOS. Of course in a probability based universe such as this, some things remain more possible than others. Through the ways of natural philosophy and the understanding of the arts and the fundamentals of magic we create our own realities and our own mythologies. Our own manifestations and our own monomyths.
Chaos Magic for the Pandaemeon
In Chaos Magic, beliefs are not seen as ends in themselves, but as tools for creating desired effects. To fully realize this is to face a terrible freedom in which Nothing is True and Everything is Permitted, which is to say that everything is possible, there are no certainties, and the consequences can be ghastly. Laughter seems to be the only defence against the realisation that one does not even have a real self.
The purpose of Chaos Rituals is to create beliefs by acting as though such beliefs were true. In Chaos Rituals you Fake it till you Make it, to obtain the power that a belief can provide. Afterwards, if you have any sense, you will laugh it off, and seek the requisite beliefs for whatever you want to do next, as Chaos moves you.
Thus Chaoism proclaims the Death and Rebirth of the Gods. Our subconscious creativity and parapsychological powers are more than adequate to create or destroy any god or self or demon or other "spritual" entity that we may choose to invest or disinvest belief in, at least for ourselves and sometimes others as well. The frequently awesome results attaining by creating gods by act of ritually behaving as though they exist should not lead the Chaos magician into the abyss of attributing ultimate reality to anything. That is the transcendentalist mistake,, which leads to the narrowing of the spectrum of the self. The real awesomeness lies in the range of things we can discover ourselves capable of, even if we may temporarily have to believe the effects are due to something else, in order to be able to create them. The gods are dead. Long live the gods.
Magic appeals to those with a great deal of hubris and a fertile imagination coupled with a strong suspicion that both reality and human condition have a game like quality. The game is open ended, and plays itself for amusement. Players can make up their own rules to some extent, and cheat by using parapsychology if desired.
A magician is one who has sold his soul for the chance of participating more fully in reality. Only when nothing is true, and the idea of a true self is abandoned, does everything become permitted. There is some accuracy in the Faust myth, but he failed to take it to its logical conclusion.
It takes only the acceptance of a single belief to make someone a magician. It is the meta-belief that belief is a tool for achieving effects. This effect is often far easier to observe in others than in oneself. It is usually quite easy to see how other people, and indeed entire cultures, are both enabled and disabled by the beliefs they hold. Beliefs tend to lead to activities which tend to reconfirm belief in a circle they call virtuous rather than vicious, even if the results are not amusing. The first stage of seeing through the game can be a shocking enlightenment that leads either to a weary cynicism or Buddhism. The second stage of actually applying the insight to oneself can destroy the illusion of the soul and create a magician. The realisation that belief is a tool rather than an end in itself has immense consequences if fully accepted. Within the limits set by physical possibility, and these limits are wider and more malleable than most people believe, one can make real any beliefs one chooses, including contradictionary beliefs. The Magician is not striving for any particular limited identity goal, rather he wants the meta-identity of being able to be anything.
So welcome to the Kali Yuga of the Pandaemonaeon wherein nothing is true and everything is permissable. For in these post-absolutist days it is better to build upon the shifting sands than the rock which will confound you on the day it shatters. Philosophers have become no more than the keepers of useful sarcasms, for the secret is out that there is no secret of the universe. All is Chaos and evolution is going nowhere in particular. It is pure chance which rules the universe and thus, and only thus, is life good. We are born accidentally into a random world where only seeming causes lead of apparent effects, and very little is predetermined, thank Chaos. As everything is arbitrary and accidental then perhaps these wordsare too small and pejorative, rather we should perhaps say that life, the universe and everything is spontaneously creative and magical.
Relishing stochastic reality we can revel exclusively in magical definitions of existence. The roads of excess may yet lead to the place of wisdom, and many indeterminate things can happen on the way to thermodynamic equilibrium. It is vain to seek solid ground on which to stand. Solidity is an illusion, as is the foot which stands on it, and the self which thinks it owns either is the most transparent illusion of all.
The heavy vessels of faith are holed and sinking along with all lifeboats and ingenious rafts. So will you shop at the supermarket of sensation and let your consumer preferences define your true self? Or will you in a bold and lighthearted fashion, thieve from both for the fun of it? For belief is a tool for achieving whatever one chooses to consider important or pleasurable, and sensation has no other purpose than sensation. Thus help yourself to them without paying the price. Sacrifice Truth for Freedom at every opportunity. The greatest fun, freedom and achievement lies not being yourself. There is little merit in simply being whomsoever you were destined to be by accident of birth and circumstance. Hell is the condition of having no alternatives.
Reject then the obscenities of contrived uniformity, order and purpose. Turn and face the tidal wave of Chaos from which philosophers have been fleeing in terror for millennia. Leap in and come out surfing its crest, sporting amidst the limitless weirdness and mystery in all things, for those who reject false certainties.
Thank Chaos we shall never exhaust it. Create, destroy, enjoy,
— PRINCIPIA CHAOTICA by Peter Carroll —
Thunder comes crashing through my mind and once again my rage is thrashing blind. As the noose is tightened something stuck in my throat. I can hear myself incanting, I can hear the oath.
No more backing down. No more running. No more giving ground. No more running…
Too many times. Too many places. Too many biggots and too many angry faces. We’re hiding away to our own shame. You know the story, It’s all the same. Mainstream culture, Mainstream lies. Mainstream husbands, with their mainstream wives. I will not change you or set you free. just let me pass and then leave me be. I hold no grudges, but I am drawing a line. You can either accept it, or you can kiss my behind.
For blubbering fools I have no more time. I have roads to walk. I have mountains to climb. So stand aside, brother let me walk on. The oath is taken, the deed is done. I will walk on, not matter but light. I will walk on with that one star in sight.
No more backing down. No more running. No more giving ground. No more running…
