7:50 am - VTI: Are You At Risk?

sammhain


VTI, or visually transmitted infection, is a weaponized version of information transfer developed by the group calling itself Cell 144. Through both specifically designed images and engineered text Cell 144 have been introducing an organism into the populace. Each day this infection spreads more widely as the organism better learns to mimic memetic propagation. The organism is described by Cell 144 as "..the hyperdimensional analog to the prokaryotic organisms which gave rise to our mitochondria."1 Infected individuals begin to develop new hyperdimensional structures, a process which may lead to any or all of the following:

Increased luck.

General Confusion.

Increased awareness and limited control over time's nonlinear functions.

Gnosis.

Loss of specific memories and/or the sudden realization of seemingly altered or completely new memories.

Occasional blackouts accompanied by the sensation of missing time.


As the hyperdimensional structures develop infected individuals report a decrease in their earlier unease. Many victims also reported bouts of euphoria. A desire to confront past traumas and proactively address problematic decisions and behaviors is not uncommon. This process has been described as "...following your pain...", and "Killing off the parts that aren't really you".2 Infected individuals eventually report conscious awareness of a symbiotic relationship with the developing organism. This sense of symbiosis tends to lead to an increased desire to cooperate/co-create, especially with other infected individuals. Anti-authoritarian sentiment begins to increases as the facade of hierarchical authoritarian structure's inevitability, desirability, and practicality becomes increasingly transparent.

This PSA is brought to you by Cell 144 and Tesseract Technologies who would like to remind you that you have just been targeted by a VTI attack. Congratulations! You are on your way to becoming both an engine of the destruction of our current diseased reality and an engineer of the New Eden which will replace it.

Interested in helping our efforts?

Hyperdimensional art for a world in dire need of an apocalypse. The site is still in its infancy, but it's grown up enough to promote. Right now everything that is up is written by me (some pieces, however, are a collaborative effort), but we've got some additional contributors lined up, so keep an eye out for that.

2:51 pm - A Disease Far Better Than The Cure

sammhain
New article up at foolishpeople.com

Part hypersigil, part true story:

Excerpt:

"Something happened on Sunday November 8th, 1992 at 1:44pm according to a very old and very nice Waltham Pocket Watch; something that has guided nearly every choice I have made since. J had been willed that watch by an elderly woman who neither J nor anyone in her immediate family had ever met, but who claimed in the note accompanying the watch, to be a long estranged family member. Three days after a man who wore his suit like a bullet proof vest delivered the watch to J she phoned me. That November had rolled in like the last train home finally reaching the station, and so though I probably should have been surprised to get that call from J, who I had not seen or heard from in the two years since the incident at reservoir number one in Framingham Massachusetts, I was not surprised in the least. The conversation was brief and without the usual soporific emotional pretenses people indulge in when they run into old friends they haven’t seen in whatever passes for a long time in their minds. J is not a cliché; she is laughter in the mausoleum. “Meet me at the red brick building across from the reservoir in two hours.” and then dial tone. "

Me!

I was recently asked by the artistic director of The Foolish People, John Harrigan, to be a writer for their website.


I'll be contributing at least an article a month (more when I'm feeling industrious or have something special to say) to the site. The subject of all these articles will have to do with time/hyperdimensional magick. Though I'm certainly far from a Thelemite, my work with this subject could aptly enough be described as my Great Work. This is something of a match made in heaven for me. I have the utmost respect for John as an artist, a magician and indeed as a human being; my respect for what The Foolish People do as a unit is likewise immense. I am absolutely privileged and honored to have been offered this opportunity.

With all the gushing out of the way...

My first article is up now and can be read here.

Additionally you may be interested in the very kinds words John had to say about me here.

Single-atom entanglement goes further

Physicists in the US have managed to entangle two individual atomic ions that are one metre apart. Their system, which is the first to uses photons to remotely entangle a pair of atomic ions, could pave the way for the construction of practical quantum information networks (Nature 449 68).

 Nietzsche: “The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!”. One of the advantages that Nietzsche finds in the doctrine is that it removes the need for an Aristotelian “unmoved mover” to create a beginning of  time.

10:43 am - Time As..

It Me.

Time is position related to position.
Time is memory of being positioned in a position.
Time is memory of a different shape.

Remember time is just a word to say..

Time can be symbolized as relative positioning.

T=69 or T=T to be more precise.
T is symbolic of perspective.

5:16 am - The 78 Piece Time Machine

sammhain
Divination, in modern occult circles anyway, is the practice of attempting to discern the most probable future based on conditions at the time of the divination. The tarot is probably the most common tool used for divination. Though there any number of ways touse the tarot, it usually involves layouts where the specific position a card is placed has some symbolic relevance. For example a common and simple three card layout ascribes temporal signifigance to each position eg past present and future. Typically the reader will try to discern how the past has impacted the present situation, and then how past and present trends might impact the future. In fact many tarot layouts contain positions relating to a linear time frame of events, which allow for many possible future outcomes, but always a fixed past and present.

Occultists' Cocktail and Mummy Unwrapping Soiree
Wednesday 7:00-9:00 pm
Temple of All Gods Cell in the Mad Scientists
Collective
@3:00 and Esplanade

Magicians, Sorcerers, Witches, Sacred Whores, Chaotes,
Priests and all other practitioners of Thee Magickal
Arts take heed... the Temple if All Gods will be
hosting an Occultists' Cocktail and Mummy Unwrapping!
We will be unwrapping a freshly unearthed Mummy to
observe first hand the ancient Mysteries of the mighty
Egyptians, as well as exchanging knowledge and
techniques to hone our mastery of the Unseen Forces
and enjoy the Dark Music of the Fallen Seraphim.

(To step out of period patter for a moment: don't miss
this opportunity to network with your fellow
magicians, occultists and scholars of the esoteric on
the Playa. We'll be spinning dark ambient, trip-hop
and industrial. Feel free to bring a personal
performance, your favorite spirits, your concubines and
your cabana boys.)

The Temple of All Gods is a multi-dimensional
spiritual _expression of the God/Goddess within each
person through dancing, trance and induced altered
states, erasing the veil between the
physical/spiritual through art and music, tantric
intoxication of the flesh and spirit possession in
order to reach a state of pure ecstatic bliss. In more
practical terms, the TAG project is a collection of
magickal individuals and groups from a myriad of
different paths and traditions such as African
Diaspora, Gardnerian Wicca, Thelema, Tantra, Feri,
Hedge Wizardry, and Chaos Magick. We are building a
public temple space with the goal of consciously
working with the magick of Burning Man. The Temple
will be open to all of the magicians, witches, and
shamans of the Playa when it is fully realized in
2007. Throughout the week we will be weaving a variety
of invitational rituals and incantations for the
gourmet magician; visit http://www.templeofallgods.org/.

10:18 am - And so I find yet another place, where interests coincide

malkah_dhainu
Hello all,

  I am Morrghan Twilight, a Chaos Mage (Amoung other things, but I think that goes without saying) who works primarily with Time. I began my work in this area months ago, when my WP (Working partner) and I had a need for weekends to feel longer, and for us to arrive ontime to our destination. Thus it has become an obsession and also an art for us.

current mood: cheerful

7:45 am - The Secret Lives Of Schools

sammhain


The following article is the first part of a series that I have pieced together from various attempts to write about my experiences using school grounds in time magick. Mostly it talks about the earliest experiences I had with a spirit I evoked at a near by school and while it is largely a personal account I think I have been descriptive enough that folks wishing to play with some of these experiences will find places to start. This is in many ways my most ambitious piece of writing to date. Thanks to a recent bit of inspiration I decided to play around with hypertext in these articles. The photographs of school ground I took for these articles are of the school where the events I write about transpire, but they were not actually taken until just recently. Anyway, without out further adieu, I present The Secret Lives Of Schools.

I guess my question is: how reliable is Pravda? I found mentions of this story on other sites, but they all refer back to Pravda.
