Out of curiosity, what do you see the sigil doing?
It's part of an experiment to push the boundaries of what this rite can traditionally do. This is traditionally a very individualistic initiatory rite, but one of the questions I'm interested in answering is whether its scope can be widened to encompass a group. The sigil functions as kind of a central touchpoint for all the asynchronous and geographically disparate versions of this working, drawing together some of the "energies" or "ripples" that seem to emanate whenever it's performed. I talk about this a little more, earlier in this thread.
In some ways, just having this thread on the forums and talking about it does the same work. Over the years, I've noticed that the attention and energy going into having a conversation here about a particular magical working tend to encourage synchronicities and shared signs / effects in the lives of those who've done the work. Wanderer has already pointed something like this out, but I've seen it happen here before.
In a broader sense, I'm asking three questions: (1) how can intent be used to alter the scope (and therefore the meaning) of a magical working? (2) Can a group working be used to foster and reinforce a sense of magical community and what are the energetic dynamics that might come into play? And (3) can "modern meta-magic" (i.e. magic worked on magic via a sigil) be used to reframe and direct a powerful ancient working (in this case something from the PGM)?
These are questions that have arisen partly in retrospect from my magical journaling and partly from seeing what people say here about their magical work. As I mention earlier, I think there is a lot of latent talent and power here that could really accomplish amazing breakthroughs (or maybe just blow our minds with more exotic forms of UPG—which of course remains to be seen) if we felt inclined to come together as practitioners. So another, more subtle, question I'm asking to everyone (not just in terms of this particular working) is what can we create together?
