The Future of Money Magic: What Do We Put Under the Candle When Our Currency Goes Digital?

At a closed meeting about African telecoms investment held here in London a few years ago, I learned about goat herders using pre-paid mobile phone credit as a form of money.

It was a three day walk from one country into another to reach the market, and currency oscillations often meant the herders could lose money by the time they reached it as either the goats would have gained in price in the local money or their own currency would have depreciated so that taking supplies home became cost prohibitive.

Apophasis: Episode 1 – Asking The Right Answers?

WELCOME TO THE DESERT OF THE UNREAL!

Welcome to my new podcast/free-thought sort of radio show. This is the pilot episode and if it turns out that there may be life forms out there listening and enjoying my thought processes and verbal antidotes, I may actually consider keeping it going and expand my horizons. (whatever that means)

The Meat Golems in The Hands of The Angry Gods

The wrath of The Gods is like great waters that is dammed for the present; they increase more and more, and rise higher and higher, ’till an outlet is given; and the longer the stream is stopped, the more rapid and mighty is its course, when once it is let loose. It is true, that scales of judgment against your degenerate deeds and ignorance has not been executed hitherto; the floods of the Gods’ vengeance have been withheld, but your corruption and degeneracy in the mean time is constantly increasing, and you are every day treasuring up more wrath. The waters are constantly rising, and waxing more and more mighty, and there is nothing, but the mere pleasure of The Gods, that holds the waters back, that are unwilling to be stopped, and press hard to go forward. If The Gods should only withdraw their hands from the flood-gate, it would immediately fly open, and the fiery floods of the fierceness and the wrath of The Gods, would rush forth with inconceivable fury, and would come upon them with omnipotent power; and if their strength were ten thousand times greater than it is, yea, ten thousand times greater than the strength of the stoutest, sturdiest and vile Demons in deepest abysses of the earth, it would be nothing to withstand or endure it.

The Psychic Chains of Our Bondage

Apart from technology, not much has changed in the last three thousand years in terms of how our minds are cultivated for social and political control purposes. Our consciousness – both collective and personal – is still being invaded via the art of extraneous “agents” and “ghosts” corralling our psyche into cultural, political and social enclosures. These methods and practices of our psychological enslavement have not changed since the time when our hysterical ancestors were spellbound by the parade of “idols” under the glow of blazing torches on their way to the Ishtar Gate in ancient Babylonia. Today, the same screams of ecstasy are delivered towards the parades of Hollywood “stars” walking along the red carpet to the Oscars –  under the glow of the spotlight. Nothing has changed. Nothing at all.

— Thomas Sheridan (The Anvil of The Psyche, 2012)

Behind My Window

Let me tell you a story…

I live close to the forest. To be exact, towards the forest, because about 100 metres from the building where I live, I can see the dense pines, hornbeam and other trees in the woods. Almost through the entire year, except during the most cold days, a bird singing can be heard from the branches of the trees. It is like the trees themselves are talking to one another.

A conversation with myself and The Devil

fancy_letter_i_28329 think if the Devil doesn’t exist, and man has created him, he had done so in his own image and likeness.

Is he real? He is as real as anything in a world of unrealities. People believe he is unreal. The Devil laughs and admits it. All is unreal! Being? What is it? A perception? What you see exists for you. If I am a delusion of your mind, you are also a delusion of mine, the Devil tells him. Each man exists in a solipsist universe in which he treats his delusions as realities. The logic suddenly explodes. Reason, tired of proceeding forward, tries to erupt out of the page.

Summoning – “With Doom We Come”. Album review and an in-depth philosophical and scholarly look from a NON-METAL HEAD perspective.

a3083907648_10

FIRST AND FOREMOST:

This is NOT going to be your run-of-the-mill “TRVE BLACK METAL” review of the year. If you are looking for something of that sort, I suggest you seek elsewhere! So please keep that in mind. This is an in-depth “study” and overview of their glorious work “With Doom We Come”, and a personal explanation of each song and musical and lyrical structure. I personally never even have considered Summoning to be a metal band to begin with, and I don’t think that they follow any trendy paths and stick to genres, fancy labels and what not. This is my personal opinion of course, and please read the review with respect and humility. Now please allow me, to allow you to throw away any preconceived notions and acquire some TRVE knowledge and wisdom.

Hymn To Pan – Poem by Aleister Crowley, and my personal view about the man behind the mystery. …or the mystery behind the myth!

IO PAN!

This is certainly one of the finest poems ever written by Crowley, despite his bad image in media or in pop culture, he remains a major figure of the early 20th century’s Occult revival in Europe. He was quite an oppressed youth, because of his religious upbringing in the hostile and devoid of all freedom and free will religious environment in rural England. He traveled extensively, had a passion for mountain climbing, poetry, art and a good taste for life (who doesn’t have a good taste for life?), and in the end became one of the leading scholars of MAGICK and the OCCULT.

GODT NYTT ÅR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Well, I am appearing here before you with a particular announcement, and also to show you a short segment from my upcoming book. Yes, I am in the process of writing my first book and it’s in the very early stages of development. I have no working title yet or a publisher, (I’ll most likely publish with CreateSpace anyways), but further news and announcements can be found here on my blog, or on my YouTube channel. Here’s a segment from the 1st chapter in the book, concerning the current, and also not so current situation here in my country. I also speak about the intentional conditioning and social engineering of the people here, and in the rest of the world in general. Also about the educational system and the mindless drones of that modern society produces.

All Goblins are Pagans

Autumn-Fairies-Rackham-L

Irish Fairies by W. B. Yeats (1890)

When I tell people that the Irish peasantry still believe in fairies, I am often doubted. They think that I am merely trying to weave a forlorn piece of gilt thread into the dull grey worsted of this century. They do not imagine it possible that our highly thought of philosophies so soon grow silent outside the walls of the lecture room, or that any kind of ghost or goblin can live within the range of our daily papers. If the papers and the lectures have not done it, they think, surely at any rate the steam-whistle has scared the whole tribe out of the world. They are quite wrong. The ghosts and goblins do still live and rule in the imaginations of the innumerable Irish men and women, and not merely in remote places, but close even to big cities.
