Re: Starting things off w/ an article by Leonardo Drakon

​Indeed Talerman, I think you laid out some true sources of esoteric knowledge. Where it gets really interesting (in my opinion) is where and how these difference sources interact and how they reconcile differences in theory and praxis when brought together. Sometimes the temple religions influence ...

Re: Starting things off w/ an article by Leonardo Drakon

​Thank you for posting this Provenant. I'm greatly humbled by the "esteemed member" part :P In regard to this topic, I'm glad to see that most people are interested and picking up on the folkloric element of the PGM. This hit me like a brick when I started to actually practice the spells o...

Re: Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic - Add the Usual

I'm not stating that the intentional misdirection of the reader is not some how wrong; rather I'm not certain I agree fully with your premise that this is a blatant screw up here. Looking at Webb's "Seven Faces of Darkness", he states on p. 50, "To perform the spells given in Chapter...

Re: Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic - Add the Usual

​ Having met Dr. Skinner, I agree that he is a class act and more than welcomes intelligent discussion and critique regarding his work.... I also think that Techniques is a fantastic resource for those hoping to better understand the PGM; however, I do agree with certain points made by Nashimiron. M...

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

I'm very excited Loagaeth that you are going to give this rite a shot. Looking forward to seeing how this thread evolves. Regarding the ivy, I just selected a vine section of hedera helix with darker leaves. As with most plants darker leaves result from less exposure to sun, so look for vine segment...

Re: Pronunciation of Words of Power

Yes and no. While intent is essential, the proper pronunciation of a word of power, a mantra or the voces magicae of the PGM is an acoustic formula that resonates with the spirit world. Like the beat of a drum it literally affects the environment and charges the air around the practitioner.

Re: Greek Magical Papyrus - great blog

I don’t think there is a way to reconcile the geometries of the planets in their sidereal and synodic cycles with any of the other traditional planetary orders. I think this is because we are looking at entirely different manifestations of the planetary principles. The order generally accepted in Ka...

Re: Nine-formed God PGM XIII

Good question. The ‘εννεάμορφος is mentioned only in PGM XIII which makes me think he might have something to do with the Graeco-Egyptian concept of Aion since this papyrus is heavily focused on this deity as the representation of the singular godhead. I believe this text is heavily influenced by py...
