Magick / Re: Magic and
« on: May 15, 2006, 09:01:02 PM »
however, if you use marijuana regularly, you can expect to be thrown in a mental asylum screaming at hallucinations all day long due to your brain being mush and  having permanent damage causing a little thing called schizophrenia.

I havent been on this site in ages, or really been working on my magic skills, however I decided to look at it tonite, and I would just like to point out that the link between schizophrenia and marijuana is very much, still unconclusive.  I have recently finished a report named "Schizophrenia: A Review" with 7 other medical students and we've read journals from very respectable sources eg. BMJ, British Psychological Research Journals, and American ones, who claim there is both a link and no link.  I'll leave this up to yourselves what to deside, but the scientific community is yet to make an official stance.  Also the reason why smoking cannabis can be effective in sufferers of depression is the effect it has on cannaboid receptors in the brain, is a similar to dopamine.  This i *guess* could lead to hallucinations if it effected areas of the occipital or temporal lobes of the brain, such as the auditory or visual cortexs, in such a way as to increase their activity but we did not really look into this in depth so can't say.

Anyway bit of useless information for you all, and keep up the magic skills, unlike me lol

Magick / Luck Charm/Sigil
« on: December 13, 2005, 09:24:20 AM »
Ok so i have a friend who is very supersticious, and she broke a mirror today, bout 10mins ago actually... anyway she cant help but believe she is going to have bad luck, i have offered to make her a good luck charm.  Now i intend to go for a sigil form charm approach, if i make a design for the sigil which i intend to carve into a wooden charm necklace type thing, and i post the design on the web, will anyone be up for putting a bit of energy into charging it with the purpose to bring luck?  I think i'll get a good result enough from me charging it and her believing in it, but if i can get a lot of you too it could be even more potent.

My only concern would be people corrupting my sigil, what do you think on the idea of posting the web, great or foolish.

Projection / Aping According to the Emerald Tablets of Thoth
« on: December 03, 2005, 02:37:56 AM »
Hey people, as the title says i think i have found a technique to AP as according to these great tablets of knowledge.  I've just been working my way through these trying to seek some of the knowledge behind the words, and this sounds almost exactly like APing.  Its purpose is to seperate the soul from the body.

Quote from: Emerald Tablets of Thoth
Deep in the silence,
first ye must linger until at last ye
are free from desire,
free from the longing to speak in the silence.

Conquer by silence, the bondage of words.
Abstaining from eating until we have conquered
desire for food, that is bondage of soul.

Then lie ye down in the darkness.
Close ye your eyes from the rays of the Light.
Centre thy soul-force in the place of thine consciousness,
shaking it free from the bonds of the night.

Place in thy mind-place the image thou desireth.
Picture the place thou desireth to see.
Vibrate back and forth with thy power.
Loosen the soul from out of its night.
Fiercely must thou shake with all of thy power
until at last thy soul shall be free.

Sounds like the idea is to meditate without food for a while til you are able to withstand the pressures to talk or eat, thento try AP drawing your energy to your "3rd eye" Chakra and shake it free.  The 3rd eye may not be the consciousness center, as i'm unsure on it, but the rest sounds right.  The last paragraph is detailing how you then navigate the Astral/Etheric realm (i'm not sure exactly which releam this refers to).

Enjoy and i hope this helps people in there goals to AP.

Martial Arts / Re: How do you hit?
« on: November 24, 2005, 09:55:31 AM »
going against the flow of the poll so far, i would hit wtih power.  If your well defined in your technique and mind, you shouldn't need much speed to avoid the opponents attacks, and you can avoid a whole range of punches and kicks from very little movements.  I'd save my energy from moving around too much and too fast and put into 3 powerful strikes to vital points of the body.  And as my sensei says, if you can put an opponent down in 3 good strikes then begin to worry.

My club is the aberdeen university capoeira club, its pretty good.  The styles we practice are mainly angola and regional.  What styles have you done Murray?

I joined the Capoeira club at my uni  :wink:

I've been doing it for about 4 weeks now, great fun, and yeah, it is very different from normal martial arts.  You'll get great flexibilty and control from doing it, but if you wanna look like Eddie from the Tekkan series then its the martial art for you

Murray, how can you take 7hrs of Capoeira each day O.O I get pretty worn down from the 2 hours i do each lesson ^^;;  I love the regional style of capoeira and cant wait till i start getting a go at trying some of those kicks out.

83 push ups (thats the whole way up and down for whoever was asking)

I read this thread did a minimal warm up of my arms and went for it  :biggrin:

Used the timer on my phone and i had to stop after about 45secs because my phone backlight went off and i couldn't see the timer, so i think i could probably better that count.  My arms were getting sore near the end but i think they could've taken a bit more.  I reckon with the right motivation i could push that count to just over 100.

Thats an interesting set you got there sykodragon, but i wouldn't have the space in my flat to try it out, once i head home in 3 weeks or so i'll give it a ago.

He's another challenge ppl can try, how many side leg raises can you manage, when lifting your legs from one side of you the other and back counts as one rep.

I suck at these by the way, but i need to improve my oblique abdomanal muscles so i gotta do them.

If i knew the person in real life and trusted them i would have no problem in believing them word for word, but when your on the internet unable to see people face to face or "feel" what they're like i think everything has to be taken with a bit of sceptism, but that doesn't justify being closed minded.  I'm signed up to similar type of groups btw sargon, and though i used to read the messages more often i haven't in along time.  Sometimes the messages did seem to ring truth, but whether or not that was just because the people joining the group are thinking the same way, or it was truth i dont know.

At the end of the day nothing anyone says will change your views, but they can guide you, just hope you can see where your being leaded before its too late if its bad  :smilie:

Main Hall / Re: Rants, Roomates, and some Randomness
« on: October 17, 2005, 02:52:04 PM »
So do you think you should tell your flatmates then going on your experiences??  I'm torn between to sides at moment as to whether or not i should tell one of the girls in my flats.  I wouldn't want to tell everyone yet, though i think one of them has tried to practiced magic before as they recognised a charms sign on a led zeppelin poster of mine, which i was suprised at.  Thing is the girl i want to tell isn't the one who i think has practiced it before, and i have no idea how i would go about it.

We talk a lot and shes very open about herself, and i though i would like to tell her i have no idea how she would take it.  I've tried to be open but its hard to be about everything.  I've right out asked her how well she thinks she knows me, and shes said she doesn't think she knows me well yet, thuogh i've said that shes a very open person.  I said she could ask me anything she wanted but she says she'll work me out with time :biggrin:.  I have no idea about other people, but i've always found you can tell when people are hiding something or how they're feeling so i assume everyone else can.

I think she'd be very open minded, i taught her the unbendable arm trick from aikido and she was impressed and pretty damn good at it for her first time, I also showed a few of the other girls too.  Thing is its one thing to show someone something that can be passed of as a simple trick, and another to tell them, oh by the way i practice magic and have seen some freaky things :/

I'm doing a degree in medicine so for me to practice magic isn't gonna be something you'd imagine of me, nor would you guess from how i act or dress.  The other thing is shes having some problems with trust at the moment so i dont wanna dump the fact that i practice magic on her if its gonna mess her up.

I probably wont yet, but i would like to some day.

Heh Rafnul, if your christian friend found out you were reading the Goetia and what it was about he would crucify you  :p

Martial Arts / Re: Increasing punch speed?
« on: October 09, 2005, 04:55:55 PM »
As Sai Astar said, you can increase your punching speed by simply throughing punches in the air and doing them as fast as you can "chain punches" if ya like.  If you keep doing it daily your'll slowly find an increase in your punch speed.  You can do this against another person (with protective gear of course ^^;;) or a punch bag if you want to work on power aswell.

Its highly not reccommend to punch with weights because you can serverly damage joints from the extra weight.  Not only that but the benefit from it isn't all that great, weights add a downwards resistance not a horizontal one.  If you want more resistance throughout your punch not just the impact, try punching under the water, i think thats pretty much the only way you can within reason.

heres a few helpful hints if you do start throwing punches into the air:

1) stretch all you upper body well before hand particulary your shoulder and arms. (common sense really lol)
2) visualize hitting a target and ensure your throwing you punches correctly, your not just flinging your hands in the air, your striking something
3) dont lock your arm out fully with each punch you can damage joints this way
4) when you punch pull the full way back before each
5) Intergrate it with other aspects of your life, theres no need to punch in your room to train, this can be done easily whilest watch tv, and if your intergrate it with your other daily activities your much more likely to keep doing it, plus its more fun lol

Have fun

Other / Re: Did God created Evil?
« on: October 08, 2005, 05:02:31 AM »
Getting a little off topic before getting on topic, when i look at the solar system or even the known universe, and look at life on other planets i find it hard to believe that everything that has come to be has been mearly by chance.  There are billions of planets and yet as so far we have found no life on other planets.  We havent even found any real traces of life.  Looking at our solar system for a moment: Mercury - nothing; Venus - Nothing; Mars - Nothing; Earth - cars, fridges, zoos, wildlife reserves, vegetation, animals...

How can one planet be so full of life without at least somewhere else being at least a little?  But then again we still no so little of the universe, for instance did you know there are actually at least 10 planets in our solar system?? The tenth one has got the name Xena for the moment, is bigger the pluto and has a moon.

Now on to the topic at hand (still taking a Christian/Judaism approach)

Lucifer and the fallen angels were all inheritly good beings in the beginning, much alike humans.  So how did they become to known as evil?  It wasn't till they turned against god that they were branded evil, or wrong-doers.  For Lucifer and the angels they wanted to be above god and the duties/places god had set them.  For humans it was when we ate the fruit that we were told not to.

Now in the bible its says there was the tree of knowledge of good and evil, that we were not to eat it.  But what if the tree was just any other tree, and normal tree, and the name given is just to represent that tree form the rest.  How then, could a normal tree have "magical powers" that bestow knowledge, i hear you ask.  How come it says its fruit was so different or nice, mabey it was just a really nice tree o.O of whatever type it was.  What if the only way to know evil is to perform it?  In that case, the provision of the knowledge did not come from eating the fruit and some change happening to adam and eve, (which is quite rediculous scientifically) but from them doing something they knew they weren't supposed to, like-wise with Lucifer.  Afterwards adam and eve hated themselves for doing what they had, mabey Lucifer did for bit aswell (although he turns out to be quite resentful of the whole thing, and thats probably what differs humans from him).

If you take these things as a definition, then evil is any act against god.  If you then take on the fact that we are made in gods nature, then we also have this inherit feeling that any act against us is evil.  This can probably lead to the predicament where acts of god againstSo we can see how differences in perception of evil occurs.  There are overall evils that are against God (whether we know them or not), and personal evils that are against us.

So then did god create evil?  This i think depends on the person, as i believe evil is a personal view rather than an object.  God must have some idea of evil for him to be able to judge, so whilest he might have created the concept of evil, he has not created the acts that we judge as evil thanks to the creation of free will.

Intrerstingly enough about global warming, scientists have never really had a chance to examine anything like this before and so are doing a lot of guess work on whats happening.  One example is in the tundra region in north russia (and i think the same as your link about siberia).  Scientists thought that as the temperatures there warmed up and allowed more trees to grow, the increase to the number of vegetaion would help counter-balance the effects of global warming by abosrbing more CO2.  What has actually happend, as they have now found out, is that the increased vegetation has actually increased the amounts of CO2 being produced and that other greenhouse gases have been released from the land thawing, so is further unbalancing the world.

TBH no-one knows whats going to happen, regardless of how much they claim they know, so its best just to sit back and watch the choas  :teethy:

Magick / Prayer as a form of sigilization
« on: October 02, 2005, 06:52:56 AM »
i had this thought not so long ago but forgot about it until now, i'm just wondering if prayer can the thought of as a form of sigilization  :confused:

When you make a sigil you have a goal or a result your after, you make a symbol thats purpose is to be a focus for your subconcious and concious to achieve the goal.  You then leave and forget the symbol conciously and allow it to manifest itself through working of your subconcious.  While waiting for it to manifest you can  give the sigil more power by charging it in whatever way you feel neccessary.

When you pray your thoughts and words are like the symbol allowing you to focus your will of the goal, but instead of trying to leave it to your subconcious you pray to your god and your god manifests your will.  But, when you finish praying, you will have left an imprint on your subconcious of your prayer and your'll forget what your prayed for over time.  The adding of the power to your sigil can be alikend to the mass prayer of congregations for people, more people praying, more people adding their will to completing the goal.

There are more purposes of prayer than for asking for things, and i dont know if those purposes have any relevance here (such as communication), but for the isolated purpose of asking i think prayer can be thought of as sigilization.  It just interests me if there is a link and am interested in other peoples thoughts, personally i dont think that this would mean god doesn't answer prayer its just people subconcious creating these miracles, but there may be some times when it is just people doing miracles.  Afterall, we are capable of miracles.
