About magick p.2

By accident I opened my copy of E. Nietzsche’s Will to Power. By coincidence the first fragment I saw was this: “What is evil? Three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness”.  (My copy not being in English nor German I’m finding it hard to pinpoint this frase for reference).

Evil is three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness. Both housewife, reading “her” weekly horoscope on the back of a gossip magazie and politician following the dictates of his economic haruspiscators are engaging in basicly the same activity: reduction of randomness via magic.

About magick p.1

The first observation I want to make about magick is how muddled the thinking of most people who engage in it is. Recently I was to translate this fragment from Ted Andrew’s “Animal-Speak”. I had much grief working on this pseudo-thinking.

Now, not all books about magick are this lacking. (I’ll discuss the great ones at a later date). But most are. Visit any thematic bookstore and you will find out for yourself.

I sometimes feel guilty because of my indulgence in this hobby. Where is my intellect?

Magic/Magick/whatever

In order to give some focus to this blog (and to my thinking)  I’ve decided to explore the concept of magic in a series of posts. Now, I’m not a practitioner, although I did and do dabble. Hopefully, as I clarify my thinking about the topic, I will either be able to lie aside my superstitious behaviors or, conversely, empower my practice.
