I hope everyone enjoyed a fun Samhain or at least an uneventful one. I love this time of year and believe it or not, New Mexico does have four distinct seasons, as one can see from the leaves in the garden pic below taken from the patio our half acre lot in downtown Gallup.
I’d like to welcome our new members this past month and remind them that if they have any questions or need assistance they should e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on our public Discord chat. Remember that I need to know your username in Discord in order to greenlight you into the private members-only area. Any random person can idle invisible indefinitely in the public area until we ban them, which is why I ban usernames which seem to have run out of things to talk about. If your name is NOT green (or blue for moderators) in Discord, you cannot see the private chatrooms and should not expect your conversation in the general chatroom (Apadana) to be private. The Discord chat is full of interesting chats, photos of TAI including our equipment and people, so it’s well worth a visit.
Rules (Also listed in Discord)
Also a huge thank you from all of us to En Ma Kai who has been fortifying our chatroom with some major upgrades, including a superintelligent robot and some additional security measures. He understands The Abrahadabra Institute and what we are all about. While we are small, officially, we already have attracted some amazing minds to the little pocket of reality we have carved out here and I expect that to grow even more.
The Kings and Queens of the Earth: Ayn Rand and Saul Alinsky
The second installment of the series covers two radicalists from the mid-century modern era, seemingly on polar opposite ends of the political spectrum…or are they?
The Da’ath Hack
I was forced to re-release the Da’ath Hack article by m1thr0s, slated for inclusion in the important Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light 7-volume series, due to the fact that some members have no experience with any kind of banishing technique. So, might as well start them on the best, most up to date banishing method ever devised.
The Sexes: via Bigrammaton to Tetragrammaton
The Abrahadabra Institute’s take on gender studies and gender issues is definately way out there, but mathematically and logically tight in its arguments. Turns out the progressives are right about many things, but not all.
People have been asking me about the real gender sexes and bigrammaton for a little while now, and while all of the data is already right there in the bigrams, both ternary and binary, that will allow astute scholars to figure (at least some of) it all out; it seems I can never write enough words to assist in the task of unveiling what all of these charts and mirrors actually mean.
The Apadana Chat Log for September 2017
Thanks to En Ma Kai for figuring out how to pull these logs easily from the server.
Building the Forums
The Alchemy section of Abrahadabra Forums is getting some content added, including high-res images of rare alchemical textbook images I have in our library, in the public domain. Check it out.
m1thr0s’ Catalogue Raisonne
I will be opening the vault aka m1thr0s’ catalogue raisonne on November 18th at 10 PM EST on Saturday 11/18 for anyone who is wanting to purchase a copy of his work and pick from the whole catalogue. This will likely be the last time I take the time to do this before July 2018 so I suggest that you tune in or let me know you’re interested in a recording of the session.
Pricing is standardized and deeply discounted for Abrahadabra Institute members. I will fulfill orders for desired prints/mirrors until December 20th. Other prints might become available later on but they are the only
The review of the catalogue will take place on Twitch on my channel.
A few people asked me to demonstrate the TwinStar meditation, it’s already helped one person point out errors in their technique, so I think it was worth making.
Turas Istigh: Fortified Island #8 – Journal Release
The Irish Order of Thelema has released its 8th issue. If one is interested in Irish historical occultism this is something that they might want to pick up.
The House on Reservation Road
A great story with every element of an authentic classical haunting was posted to r/Paranormal a few days ago by user floralinertia.
A pair of redditors, LunaHyacinth and Urodelica agree that disembodied, floating, screaming, human heads are definitely a believable ghost story, and they explain why:
Japanese Demon Festival Terrifies Kids
After watching the video below, you might ask how this is not child abuse, but how else are future therapists going to earn a living? Kidding aside, the festival started after a mysterious “demonic” mask washed up out of the ocean. The demon is called “Paantu,” etymologically similar in structure to the Chung Kuo creation god “P’an Ku” who also has a devilish appearance as a dwarfish figure with two horns. Curiously, the Coast Salish tribes in the Pacific Northwest have similar tales corresponding to sacred masks which they are still in possession of to this day. They are sometimes referred to as the “masks that came from the ocean” as they were discovered on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. Japanese culture and Salish culture share a lot of similarities and although no DNA research has been done it’s theorized that American Indians immigrated from Asia. Only hair from virgins is permitted to be used on the Salish masks. In 1994 I was asked by our family friend, the daughter of the chief of the Tulalip tribe to donate my long hair after deciding to go with a pixie haircut, to a mask that needed to have its hair replaced. The dance in which the masks emerge every spring is called the “Black Paint Dance” which is eerily similar to the appearance of these Japanese demons which are painted black…see the link to the Dangerous Minds article below.
Actual Vikings think Racist pseudo-Vikings are Morons
When it comes to Odin and Thor, there isn’t much more that can lend your opinion authority than actually living in Reykjavik and speaking a language that isn’t English. The Atlantic (yes, The Atlantic) reports on Hilmar Hilmarson, a high priest of the old Nordic faith popularly called “Asatru” and qualifies as such an authority. He finds the America Asatru racists obnoxious and “horrifying.” We can’t remember a time when the nonsensical mish-mash of old Norse mythology in America was ever not full of racist idiots and nerdy doughboys who can’t research their way out of a paper bag. Iceland is preparing to revive a temple to Odin June 2018, so let’s hope their ideology will influence ugly Americans to align more closely with ancient beliefs, at least.
Quartz Magazine Makes Fun of Hedge Funds and Their Obsession with Greek Gods, or, Minor Plot Characters…
It seems silly, but, apparently, it’s good for business?
Cricket tournament competitor Dinesh Chandimal of Sri Lanka claims that Shamanism helped him beat Pakistan this week.
Elle reports, Paris Jackson, a rising star on the fashion modelling circuit, claims she is a Shaman in training who is going to help save the Great Barrier Reef. That’s nice dear. Meanwhile, outside of la-la land, scientists have concluded there’s only one way to save the Great Barrier Reef, and it doesn’t include flying all over the world in a fuel-guzzling jet to model clothes.
Another set of scientists have devised a life-support system for the reef, which will buy it some time while we get the technology we need to replace carbon emission systems.
Environmentalism is a major focus for Shamanism but the real solution to this entire mess is for humanity to attain to its natural inheritance as stars. Once we get into space every other sacrifice nature has made will be worth it – both in her eyes and in our future, as our survival ensures that these natural wonders can be replaced with sufficient genetic technology. The obsession with the peculiarities and intricacies of micro-managing nature is disturbing, to say the least, when man has completely let its inheritance as the embodiment of consciousness stars completely fall to the wayside. I know there are dark times to come and no one, literally no one – not even enough to justify me or The Abrahadabra Institute continuing its work – is looking in the direction of the way out. So the future is grim and it’s likely going to just get grimmer until humans wake up to what they are. The O.T.O. has failed, the Golden Dawn has failed, and the only bright light in this world at the moment is science and technology itself. Even that is under attack by ignorant and stupid neo-luddites who could end up exacerbating the situation so dangerously that we could be facing permanent extinction.
The Earth knows exactly what she is doing, and why, and humans are at the heart of everything she desires for her future.

A very interesting article detailing an ancient box drum belonging to T’akdeintaan clan shaman. The Sealaska Heritage Museum is bringing it out of storage in order to find out more about it and to restore and preserve it.
Israeli Company Finds a Way to Tackle Plastic Problem in World’s Oceans
So, who still doesn’t think advanced technology and laissez-faire capitalism beats neo-ludditism when it comes to enviromental solutions? Last I checked, even the hippest urban hipster hippy uses plastic products on their Kombucha beverage, much of which still isn’t easily recyclable. Until now.
The Burning Times in Odisha, India
The UK newspaper The Sun is reporting an incident of witch burning in Odisha.
Economics and Witchcraft in Kenya
In less depressing news, a Kenyan economist who teaches at the University of Nairobi analyzes the market of witchcraft, and makes some interesting observations concerning historical practice in Africa.
Meanwhile, in the West…
Exeter, the town that carried out the last witch execution in England is now believed to have also been the first recorded town to have performed such a hanging in the UK, the Guardian reports.
Raymond Buckland, founder of the Seax-Wica lineage, filial to Anglo-Saxon iconography and belief, dropped his robe and walked on, September 27th. He is survived by his wife Tara and son, Robert.
Just from personal experience girls – never trust anyone who coats you with the whole “goddess” flattery. It never ends well. A pedophile in Spain uses fake e-mails and her gullibility to gain access to her 12 year old daughter who he then repeatedly raped in a weird tale explained by Euro Weekly News. Pending the trial he faces 11 years and the mother has lost custody. Amazingly, this time it had nothing to do with Thelema or the Illuminates of Thanateros.
