space marines about to become an actual thing, apparently…


Alabama Congressman Mike Rogers has introduced a solution to our military’s sluggish responsiveness to space exploration, colonization and defense matters: the Space Corp. The Space Corp would be a division born out of the Air Force to eventually become its own branch of the military, exactly the way the Air Force emerged from the Air Force Corp limb of the U.S. Army. 

Although it is just in the planning phase at this point, kudos to Congressman Rogers for addressing this massively critical issue when it seems nearly all branches of government have turned a blind eye to our lack of efficacy in space. NASA itself is outdated and has been due for a complete overhaul over three decades.

A hearing titled, “Reopening the American Frontier: Promoting Partnerships Between Commercial Space and the U.S. Government to Advance Exploration and Settlement” will be held after the July 4th recess in Washington D.C., lead by Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Space-X, Relativity, Nanoracks and NASA will have representatives present.

“In 1962, President John F. Kennedy laid down a marker for space exploration that inspired a generation of Americans to reach for the stars, recognizing that the race to the heavens was nothing less than a crucial front in the battle between freedom and tyranny,” Cruz said, and “We should once again lead the way for the world in space exploration”

Senator Cruz has more recently been on a campaign intending fix the problem of suppression of free speech on campuses across the country. (I couldn’t find any reason to disagree with the man myself. People make fun of Ted Cruz all the time in some very funny and clever ways but he’s actually well-spoken and thoughtful, and doesn’t take himself waaay too seriously like some members of the administration. Plus his family dresses up for Samhain.) It will be interesting to see how he positions himself regarding critical space exploration issues after independence day.

lapel pin design and membership update

We’re still working on memberships. Me, Catalytic Subterfuge and MythMath are hashing out launch details. New members will have to undergo a six month probation before training starts – so expect that curriculum packets and books to be available in December. Depending on the factory membership packets may be available as soon as the end of July.  

      Here’s our lapel pin design!

occult space people: “rocket rider’s prayer” from free fall & other delights

I’ve been working every hour of the day on the membership launch which requires much musical fuel and Eve Online in the background. I ran across this little ditty in the midst of a few dozen space shanties and figured the pagans in the crowd would enjoy it. I still can’t understand why the pagans in the community aren’t excited by space. Too close to the gods perhaps? I dunno.

“It is not piracy. It is salvage.” –Filk Zombie

Over half the ships in Eve online, a space simulation, sport Occult and Pagan names. This is the way forward for humanity, have some fun while you’re sucked into the future, it’s going to happen no matter what anyone wants. I just can’t imagine teaching people about Mutational Alchemy without also knowing they are on board with the whole Man-in-space thing. Sorry if that sounds restrictive or annoying or anything, it’s just the way it is.

every star may be born as a pair, scientists at UC Berkeley find

Sarah Sadavoy (primary) and Steven Stahler (secondary) of UC Berkeley have recently released data and a hypothesis suggesting that most if not all stars in the universe are born as a binary pair. 

“The key here is that no one looked before in a systematic way at the relation of real young stars to the clouds that spawn them. Our work is a step forward in understanding both how binaries form and also the role that binaries play in early stellar evolution. We now believe that most stars, which are quite similar to our own sun, form as binaries. I think we have the strongest evidence to date for such an assertion.”  

– Stahler

     Our own star’s birth companion spun off into parts unknown early on in their life, the scientists say. 

    The full statement is available at the link below:

New evidence that all stars are born in pairs

light moves as a liquid, scientists find

The flow of polaritons encounters an obstacle in the supersonic (top) and superfluid (bottom) regime. Credit: Polytechnique Montreal “Works of Professor Stéphane Kéna-Cohen of Polytechnique Montréal demonstrated the ability of light to flow without friction when encountering an object, under special conditions.”

Giovanni Lerario, Antonio Fieramosca, Dario Ballarini,  Lorenzo Dominici   Milena De Giorgi, Giuseppe Gigli and Daniele Sanvitto of the NANOTEC Institute of Nanotechnology, Fabio Barachati and Stéphane Kéna-Cohen of the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Konstantinos S. Daskalakis of Finland’s Aalto University, Stefan A. Maier of Imperial College London were among the scientists gracing the endorsements section of a paper titled “Room-temperature super fluidity in a polaritoncondensate” released on June 5th, 2017 by the scientific journal, Nature. 
      My first thought was initially interested in the French and Italian names gracing the paper. Any classically trained (ie, European lineaged) artist will tell you that light flows around the form, and that Italy and France stand at the apex of the art world historically. The exact words of my teacher, Kathryn Manzo, after explaining the curving of light around form were “Physics might disagree with us but that’s irrelevant, just observe the light.” 
       With that being said, I have to warn that I don’t mention this because I am the sort of person who is surprised or remotely indignant when scientists investigate if mice like cheese. Doing the actual lab work, no matter how obvious it seems, is crucial to the integrity of science and technology. I just thought it was interesting that this has been observed historically by a mankind far more in the dark about physics than us. The European Academic Tradition dates back formally to Michelangelo, the art world’s Einstein. The views on how light moves would date back at least to his time period. 
      As a side note for followers of Judaic Kabbalah and Hermetic Qabbalah, if light was a mere wave, it wouldn’t agree with Kabbalistic theory, which purports that the light of Ain Soph Aur, particularly in Lurianic Kabbalah, flows “like water” through the Sephira, which are layered like “the layers of an onion” as Luria put it. (The Tree of Life, The Palace of Adam Kadmon)
      Confirming that light flows like this will significantly increase technological advancements in solar panels, so friends of energy alternatives should be very excited about these findings.
      The initial discovery appears to have been credited to one man, Dr. Stéphane Kéna-Cohen of Polytechnique Montréal, the world class engineering institution. He wrote an article titled “
A stream of superfluid light” available at http://www.polymtl.ca/carrefour-actualite/en/news/stream-superfluid-light.
