Orgone Orgone energy accumulator (with door closed) (with door open) Alternating layers of organic and non-organic materials inside the walls supposedly increase the orgone concentration inside the enclosure relative to the surrounding environment. Reich's theories held that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases—including cancer—much as deficits or constrictions in the libido could produce neuroses in Freudian theory. Reich founded the Orgone Institute ca. 1942 to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine lists orgone as a type of "putative energy". There is no empirical support for the concept of orgone in medicine or the physical sciences,[dead link] and research into the concept ceased with the end[when?] History Evaluation William S.

Chaos magic The chaosphere is a popular symbol of chaos magic. Many variants exist. For more, see Symbol of Chaos. General principles Chaos magicians are often seen by other occultists as dangerous or worrisome revolutionaries. History Origins and creation This magical discipline was first formulated in West Yorkshire, England in the 1970s. A meeting between Peter J. Influences Following Spare's death, magicians continued to experiment outside of traditional magical orders. Early days The first edition of Liber Null does not include the term "chaos magic", but only refers to magic or "the magic art" in general. Texts from this period consistently claim to state principles universal to magic, as opposed to a new specific style or tradition of magic, and describe their innovations as efforts to rid magic of superstitious and religious ideas. Chaos came to be part of this movement defined as "the 'thing' responsible for the origin and continued action of events[...].

M. Lamar Keene The Psychic Mafia In 1976, Keene co-authored The Psychic Mafia, "as told to" Allen Spraggett, a well-known Canadian writer on paranormal topics. The writer William V. Rauscher, himself a believer in psychic powers, contributed a foreword and a bibliography and claimed to have conducted 75 hours of interviews with Keene, during which Keene admitted that all of his psychic activities were done by fraudulent means. In The Psychic Mafia, Keene explicitly professed a belief in God, life after death, psychic phenomena and ESP, even after making his case against true believers and renouncing his trade as a phony medium. Keene and Spraggett's book caused a storm among his former associates in spiritualist circles. Keene changed his name, moved to another city, and entered the warehouse and storage business.

Vibration: A Key to Magick After several thousand years, scientific theory has caught up with occult theory to realize that all matter is made up of energy that vibrates. Thisresults in the conclusion that if we can control vibration, we can control matter. Luckily, there is a relatively easy way to do this, through what is called the Law of Resonance. There are two aspects to this law: 1. The typical example of this takes place when you sing in a shower. 2. The typical example of this is that of you play a violin note near a piano, strings in the piano at or near the frequency of the violin note being played will start to vibrate and produce a sound. The trick to using this law in magick is also two-fold. For example, lets say you are trying to work with your heart chakra. In ceremonial magick, there are certain terms that are meant to be vibrated during rituals. Vibration of Words of Power In order to accomplish this you have to breathe correctly. Ah-tah
Magick and the Occult: Who Was Franz Bardon? Who Was Franz Bardon? Tim Scott Franz Bardon is one of the most important but least known occultists and magicians of the Twentieth Century. He is mainly known through four books he wrote which were published in the 1950's. Many have borrowed his techniques and terminology without giving him proper credit, sometimes unknowingly, but not always. Bardon was unusual in that he stressed practice and practicality above all else. Bardon's Life and Work Bardon did not appear to be trying to create a legend about himself. According to his student and close friend Otti Votavova, Franz Bardon was the oldest of 13 children, and the only son of a very devout Christian mystic, Viktor Bardon. In later life, Bardon became a stage magician who gained some fame in Germany in the 1920's and 1930's under the stage name "Frabato". As Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party ascended to power in the 1930's various groups such as the O.T.O. and the Freemasons were banned and some of their members arrested. His Sources

Imagine this: You're very much in love with someone, and you have to go out of town. What do you do when you're jealous? It's an immediate response. If you can cool down, if you can get hold of the internal automatic reactions that accompany jealousy, you might find out that you can indeed fix the situation. Such solutions of diplomacy are important, but they remain superficial. The first step is to clarify what you are about in the relationship. How you see the relationship will affect matters from the beginning; for instance, what you share with each other about your realities. Here is a simple test to see where you are in this matter of relating. Another layer is guilt.
