Relating to the previous event; one of our members asked about print pricing for any of the mirrors or assets like the Mutational Alchemy Tarot prints at The Abrahadabra Institute. The price has gone down considerably for TAI members, being cost plus 50% for any size or frame job. For non-members it is 100%. So for example, a 10 x 10 print would be about $15 for members, $20 for non-members.
Custom prints in unique colors that don’t already exist in our library come with an addition $32 cost minimally with two revisions. Unique colorations were always welcomed by m1thr0s, but since I will be doing the work officially, the Certificate of Authenticity will have my signature as the artist with the traditional addendum “After m1thr0s” if it is a m1thr0s original, signifying that it is a copy of his original work. This is the proper addendum added to the title of a piece when being copied by a student from the master, in my tradition, the European Academic Art tradition, which is the legitimate standard that most artists look to for matters of propriety. If one de
I’ll put together a simple pricelist later on that can be referenced for special orders. Some prints are not available at this standard of pricing, including the TwinTrees Primordial and TwinTrees Temporals in the Imperial Edition color scheme.
At 10:00 PM EST I will be doing a showcase review of m1thr0s’ work for a member who wants a print. This is a chance to get a look at m1thr0s’ entire catalogue raisonne, probably for the last time this year or most of 2018. You may also order prints if you see one you like. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Prices are highly discounted for TAI members. If you’d like to ask questions you can use the Twitch chatroom or connect via voice to our Discord server. The addresses are listed below!
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 email@example.com 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.
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?
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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 Mayan Ceremony of Self-Marriage
Kathryn Romeyn writes on her journey to Mexico and the guided initiation into the Mayan secrets of self-marriage.
A collection of essays detailing occultism against the framework of entheogenic practice has been released. The editor is Daniel A. Schulke, who authored the grimoire Lux Haeresis.
Shamanic Drum Restoration
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.
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.
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.
November is the month dedicated to men’s health, nicknamed Movember (men’s November.) Anyone with fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends and sons can find an easy excuse to celebrate the symbol of Movember by growing a mustache or sporting mustache swag, the official symbol of Movember and the Movember Foundation.
20% of all proceeds this month from The Abrahadabra Institute store (including memberships) will go directly to the Movember foundation! Visit their informative website for insights into how you can become aware of and help eliminate common yet preventable suffering, illness and death facing our boys and men. Often, this can be done by just reaching out to loved ones in your life already.
The heavy expectations placed on either of the sexes in our society are not limited to hurting women, they hurt men too, which is why feminism was always about relieving the burden of both sexes. Feminists, have no fear…Movember is one of the few men’s charity groups out there that isn’t connected with the Men’s “Rights” Movement – even if they have tried to claim it in the past. It also doesn’t attack the problems facing the male gender from the dangerous and false pretense that advocating for the human rights of one group somehow takes away the human rights of another group (also known as insanity.) The rigid expectations of men to be stereotypical providers, muscular strongmen and constant heroes in every situation has lead to an unhealthy and unsustainable situation that affects everyone.
A lot of the time men themselves have been so deeply ingrained with wrongheaded and unhealthy concepts of what is expected of them it can lead to all kinds of unnecessary stress, without them ever becoming aware of what it is that is causing the pain.
Homo sapiens sapiens is a complex animal and that the sexes are not cut and dried – and we can prove it with math and geometry as discussed in the gender article a few weeks back. We can’t force ourselves to be something that we are not – it just leads to a whole lot of unhappy, suicidal and sick monkeys. Achieving Completion and Perfection will require a lot of adjustments to our problematic species, and if that means abandoning these stale concepts of masculinity – so be it.
“You have such a kind heart. Such a true spirit. You are so wise and so full of knowledge. If only you would let others see all these wonders in you. I know these things because I know you the best out of anyone. I truly love you and I know your true love for me also. You may be able to fool others with your strong front, but you cannot fool me.”
Mandodari, wife of Ravana, the Ramayana
“Help me, o warrior lord of Thebes, in my unveiling before the Children of men! Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue!”
Liber al vel Legis: Nuit, speaking to a masculine counterpart
“Hero, …… beloved of holy An, …… born in the shining great mountains, lord …… with sparkling eyes, with the attractiveness of a young man, great hero, the king’s right arm on the battlefield, Lord Ninĝišzida, your praise is sweet. They praise you in song. Hero, as you wander on the earth, Ninĝišzida, beloved of An, through you the early flood occurs, and Enki rejoices at you. Through you fine grains are in the fields, and …… rejoices at you. …… head held high, Lord Ninĝišzida. You ……, Lord Ninĝišzida. You extend ……, and you stretch out your claws. Lord Ninĝišzida, your praise is sweet, …….”
– ETCSL translation : t.4.19.3 A hymn to Ninĝišzida (Ninĝišzida C), Oxford
Nu! the hiding of Hadit. Come! all ye, and learn the secret that hath not yet been revealed. I, Hadit, am the complement of Nu, my bride. I am not extended, and Khabs is the name of my House. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. Yet she shall be known & I never.
– “Had” The consort of Nuit (Kemetic Nwt or Nut)
Upon a time while my mind was meditating on the things that are, my thought was raised to a great height, while the physical senses of my body were held back—just as are the senses of men who are heavy with sleep after a large meal, or from fatigue of body.
I thought I heard a Being more than vast—in size beyond all bounds—called out my name and say: “What wouldst thou hear and see, and what hast thou in mind to learn and know?”
“And I said: “Who art thou?”
He answered: “I am Shepherd of Men, Mind of all-Masterhood; I know what thou desirest and I am with thee everywhere.”
And I replied: “I long to learn the things that are, and comprehend their nature, and know God. This (I said) is what I desire to hear.”
He answered me: “Hold in thy mind all thou wouldst know, and I will teach thee.”
And with these words His aspect changed; and straightway, in the twinkling of an eye, all things were opened to me. And I saw a limitless Vision: all things turned into Light—sweet, joyous Light. And I became transported as I gazed….”
I simply could not resist the reckless self-indulgence of kicking off the second piece of this series with Ayn Rand. (The first installment is viewable here.) Anyone who joins TAI will be expected to be interested in philosophy – any philosophy – and while my personal preference is for an enormous range of philosophers ranging from Pythagoras to Thomas Jefferson. I don’t really care what kind of philosophy our students and members like, as long as they have some kind of philosophy. Ayn Rand just has a special place in my heart as the most polarizing individual in my repertoire of knowledge. No one causes an irrational emotional meltdown quite as spectacularly Ayn Rand, this is probably one of her most endearing qualities. Just drop her name in any social circle and watch the fallout.
Yet, she also has some things to say about our Nu Aeon that support the ideas Thelemites and Liber al Vel Legis aficionados hold dear regarding the imagined and perceived reign of Ra Hoor Khut. RHK is experienced as coming from within our own Body of Light, centering at the solar plexus and is felt along the arms during gnosis. “I am the strength and force of your arms” he says. This area of the Body of Light is connected with the chakra known to facilitate carving out dominion, and Ayn Rand has plenty to say about dominion and will. While she is coming at it from a very earthly perspective, this is exactly the kind of down to earth objective-reality espresso shot most occultists need these days – not the subjective “everything will unfold as it should” crap that you hear spouted off to anyone who will listen. Ra Hoor Khut himself defines himself, first and foremost, as a God of War and of Vengeance. He’s not going to be inspiring us to turn the other cheek and be our brother’s keeper, as the previous aeon was defined, unless that keeping includes socking them in the jaw for their bullshit.
People are going to have to learn to change their own godamned diapers in this aeon, mark my words. We’ve got a lot of serious threats breathing down our neck here, from the antibiotic crisis coupled with the return of ebola and the plague in Africa, to the fallout of what is the largest extinction since the Permian. The world is not going to be saved by niceness, it’s going to be saved by what we refer to, and what the ancient Chinese referred to, as *right thinking* and *right action*. But what is *right thinking* and more importantly, what is the most pressing matter we must attend to if we are to survive and thrive in our Nu Aeon environment, the so-called “Age of War and Science?” [Continue Reading (Members Only)]
