The Neo-Terraphim Alphabet of Influences
I’ve long wanted to make an alteration to Austin Osman Spare’s drawing The Alphabet of Desire. As the A.O.D. is in common use by Chaos Magi the world over, thanks in part to the work of Peter J. Carroll’s writings upon the subject, I found it somewhat irksome as a model over the years. The original A.O.D. includes 6 emotional states which guide most human behavior. 3 states, and their polar...

I have a great deal of work to do and a finite amount of time in which to complete it. As we all know, work expands to fill the available time; so I’m tumblring right now. Ye gods I’m my own best enemy.

For the sake of my good-will, I create silence and space, peace and tranquility. I take this time to balance my thoughts, my will, my emotions and my body. I am centred in Universe. I am grounded on Earth. ☆✩☆✩☆✩☆✩ First line: this is to remind me to foster positive te (not only neutral) in times of stress. Second line: to slide from my initial reaction, I must take action, and create the space...
Success in magick, success in life
If you want the results that you desire then you have to practice and practice. There are no guarantees in life (excluding death and taxes, and I’m not certain about death) as this universe may be chaotic and may be stochastic. But to stack the probabilities in your favour you could: Be certain about the result you desire, but not so regimental that you exclude its opportunity to manifest; Know...

Stoya™: Touch. →
systemofaclown: stoya: What do you think about when you’re having an orgasm? Nothing. Maybe you’re thinking, but I know I’m not thinking. My mind is clear. My mouth goes on autopilot, the sounds coming out of it may occasionally be words but they have no intellectual thought behind them. The “oh god”s and “fuck”s… Without realizing it, Stoya has touched upon why orgasm is such a valuable - if...

What's the word for 'rejectingness'?
I’m researching the relationships of emotions, and considering explicit (surface) and implicit (underlying) emotional matters. One concept I’m looking into is the theory that the root of each emotion is contained in its opposite (as espoused by Peter J. Carroll and Kraft-Ebbing and numerous others). Deciding what emotions are opposite each other depends on the system you subscribe to,...

noisbutveganism: Listening to some asshat recount a “weird dream” in an attempt to illustrate how complex a person they are or having them show off all their stupid fucking tattoos while implying their elementary grasp of symbolism is a mark of an intellectual giant.

What is common?
“Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is fairly uncommon. Approximately five in every 1,000 adults in the UK are affected by the condition each year.” NHS Direct Five in a thousand is 0.5 in a hundred, which (I know you’re ahead of me) is half a percent. Half a percent of the population experiencing / reporting this elbow tendon pain is considered uncommon. Of the...
