I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. The Abrahadabra Institute at this time takes a one month break from external publication and instruction to focus on internal affairs, specifically this year in order to make preparations for the March curriculum and the official book on Mutational Alchemy. By the end of January registration and orders for books will be available as the first order of business.
Any extremely important questions may be directed to our Discord server or by phone. This is a very busy time of year for most people, so it’s best for me to take advantage of that by getting as much work as I can finished, regarding these very important behind the scenes projects that will secure this knowledge for both current and future students, as well as make it accessible.
Solstice cards went out yesterday, so check your mailbox soon.
Ultimate Guide to the Dwarven God
These “Ultimate” articles on archetypes and godforms are designed to be flexible and expandable, so we will have our own personal library of archetypes to draw upon that is uniquely positioned for the needs of The Abrahadabra Institute’s burgeoning Mutational Alchemists or Magi. The threads are always open for discussion, so if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to reply directly to the article.
מִצְרָ֫יִם (borderlands) of religious thought: abraham
This new series of articles is meant to attend to the concerns and thoughts of those who have religious tendencies, or, those who have to deal with religious family members on a regular basis.
The Abrahadabra Grid, The Hidden Diamond Sutra and the Doctrine of the TwinTrees: Introduction
A great little introductory article sparked by one of the math whizzes over at r/askmath, who happened to not only be able to solve one of the great mysteries of Abrahadabra, but was a learned Qabbalist himself, as it turned out after he spied Izi’s reddit history.
We will be continuing these lectures on the Mutational Alchemy Tarot which should help lead TAI members into a complete understanding of the tarot from a very logical, thus, strong, foundation. I aim to knock out at least one of these a month, and they will be members only from here on out.

Science and Technology
A strange story from PJ Media. Apparently an ex Google Exec has created a religion that aims to create a master AI, or a god…an artificial intelligence god.
What kind of proper occultist doesn’t? Check out the amazing new space-age styled library, the Tianjin Binhai Library that opened a few days ago. Apparently the library part of it kind of sucks, since many of the books are just painted on, and personally we think it could use a few dozen overstuffed armchairs, but it is very cool looking.
