Damn! 6 years is a long time. I've done it for a few months continuously in the past. It certainly builds up the more you do it.

Re: PGM IV 154-285: Initiation with Typhon for Bowl Divination

I think it might be a modern, Golden Dawn / Abramelin inspired misunderstanding to think of these things as a one off that you only do once. I've seen people with a different perspective (Academics) come to the conclusion that these rites are actually more like empowerments which would be done occas...

Re: Thoughts on PGM Reconstruction

Research is important, but magic dies and becomes philosophy when winging it is removed from the repertoire. Also, there is a big difference between winging it, and running on inspiration. Inspiration in my opinion relies on an exterior and interior base. Interior base for inspiration is limited by...

Re: Odd Insights into Hekate

It seems there was a Tubingen Theosophy written about 500 C.E. that is a probable forgery of a Christian Oracle of Apollo. It contain's part's of Porphyry's Oracle, perhaps more than what is contained in Augustine's rebuttal. Discussion was presented in the International Journal of the Classical Tr...

Re: Odd Insights into Hekate

I wonder what the Jewish tradition actually says about worshipping the Messiah - their god is a jealous god, and half of the bible involves him trashing other gods till he's the only one left. He might not approve of people worshipping the M...

Re: Odd Insights into Hekate

I imagine oracles were used politically from the get go, not just in the conflict with Christianity. It wasn't just Goes who bent the gods to their wills, the politicians were 10 times worse!

Re: Odd Insights into Hekate

Presumably Christ would fit into the Platonic conception of the Hero. He could be seen as playing the Daimonic role toward Christians as Proclus describes Socrates playing in his interaction with Alcibiades. Asuming this notion was current in Porphyry's day and not a new idea of Proclus. So, from a ...

Re: A question for Kemetics- looking for lore about Kauket

I only know of working with the Ogdoad through the PGM as in PGM XIII where they are all named in the ritual opening where you recreate the moment of creation. They all work together so you call them all together.
