Open Magick: The High Magick of Lacan, Deleuze and Guattari. Many times good information on high magick and the cracks it opens on the texture of reality isn’t in dark middle ages grimoires, neither in secret texts from suspicious organizations, not even written by those we would recognize as “magicians” according to the preconceptions through which we also judge the world surrounding us.
There are several authors in western philosophy whose ideas intertwine with the interests of those who seek to deconstruct themselves and what we ascribe as “real”. But in this article I would like to focus in three of them, who belong to the french philosophy of the second half of the XX Century. Jacques Lacan and the creation of the subject as an entity The initiatory path could be considered as walking in the opposite direction to the enslaving flow that tries to lead us in our life process.
To revert such flow, to unlearn what was learned, to break down conditionings. The mirror is a metaphor. And things get even worse! Roots of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. By Terry Melanson (26/4/2009) [Author’s note: My initial speculation was warranted, it seems; additional corroboration in the following post (and comments): “Was Jacob Frank a Rosicrucian?
“] The Golden Dawn – of Mathers, Westcott, Crowley fame – has gone Web 2.0. Some of the most revealing posts on their blogs, are: The Golden and Rosy Cross Worn by International Golden Dawn Imperator, David Griffin; The Red and Golden Cross; and significantly, The Sabbatian Qabalah and its relation to the Golden Dawn. From Griffin: I wear a cross of pure 24k gold, enameled red, that derives directly from the 18th Century German Rosicrucian Order known as the Gold und Rosenkreutz. […] The Gold und Rosenkreutz Order, the Rosicrucian predecessor of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is, in fact, the source of origin of entire grade system of the Golden Dawn, as well as the mystic numbers of the grades, mystic titles, symbols, etc.
From “Sincerus Renatus”: …and delivers. Another History of the Knights Templar: Conclusion. The Templar seal depicting a horse with two riders has always mystified historians, at least those not familiar with its Sumerian antecedent.
But given the complex and sometimes contradictory story of the Knights Templar, it makes sense on a number of different levels.It symbolizes the exoteric and the esoteric nature of the Order. It symbolizes the agenda of Rome and the hidden agenda of the grand masters. It symbolizes the Norman core of the Order and also its shadowy patrons, possibly Venetians. And it symbolizes the virtual empire of the Normans/Templars and the ancient virtual empire of the Phoenicians. The Phoenicians were similarly dualistic. There was the exoteric religion of the Phoenicians and their Canaanite kin that was based on the Sumerian-derived pantheon, and then there was a parallel, syncretic Greco-Egyptian Mystery tradition the Phoenicians seem to have created and disseminated, from Persia to the British Isles.
Was John himself Phoenician? A Huge Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music (1920-2007) Featuring John Cage, Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart & More. Image by Emily, via Wikimedia Commons If you've taken any introductory course or even read any introductory books on music, you'll almost certainly have heard it described as "organized sound.
" Fair enough, but then what do you call disorganized sound? Why, noise of course. And all this makes perfect sense until your first encounter with the seemingly paradoxical but robust and ever-expanding tradition of noise music. "Modern 'noise music' finds its roots in early electronic and industrial musics," says Static Signals, which used to review a lot of the stuff. The development of electronic musical instruments — and indeed, any kind of sound-manipulating electronic device — came as a great boon to this exploration of the borderlands between organized and disorganized sound. To the noise music-uninitiated — and probably even to a few of the initiated — some of the tracks here will sound like music, and some certainly won't.
