Bare-Hands Magick

Posted in Articles, Bare Hands, Magick with tags on 2022-09-06 by eianorange

Besides the obvious destinations: spiritual liberation, education, reciprocal love, financial security, control over one’s mind, etc. there are more immediate terminals we wish to arrive at from the use of magick. However, instant magick rarely exposes itself. The scarcity of instant magick makes it all the more appealing. Most magickers would have us believe that their ‘results’ can’t be appreciated until some time after their working. Should we buy their bullshit? Or does Kia have to marinate?

Flash manifestation is a skill that some seem to innately pick up and excel at while others toil and fail. We’re talking about results on the fly, with no prep, and using no props. We may consider this type of sorcery as ‘cold magick’ which should represent an improvisational performance on behalf of a client, whether that be aimed at a rival, pointed towards a love interest, painted on a target, or in the process of enabling the magicker to accelerate their agendas following their dedications declared and devotions described.

The authors of this e-say would like to take this opportunity to point out that your magick is fake and Anglophilic in addition to it being non-lineage based, non-grimoire derivative, and non-initiatory in structure. You can’t join a fraternal order because you’re too much of a goon. You’re unable to unravel the puzzle pieces that act as keys to these conspiracies and secret societies. You don’t even possess the wherewithal to make up your spiritual path or invent your traditional religion, so maybe it’s time to try Discordia, hmm?

Most healing is a form of bare hands magick as it can often be performed on the spot by seasoned practitioners. One of the most underrated, yet impressive texts on the subject of Bare Hands Magick is Nick Hall’s Chaos and Sorcery, which explores the techniques and tools of more ‘primitive’ magickal sources such as the sorcerers of the African Congo and the “clever men” of the Australian Aborigine, as well as the Haitian bokor and hir consistent bag of tricks.

If we strip away all of the extraneous procedural fluff involved in the performance of a magickal operation and detonate the art to its rawest elements all we are left with is gnosis and intent.

By ‘gnosis’ we are referring to altered states of consciousness which, Alan Chapman, author of Advanced Magick For Beginners, claims are not even necessary to work magick effectively. His explanation regarding the trivial nature of gnosis relates to the trivial nature of all techniques. None is universal and can claim authority over the ‘right’ tech or the ‘true’ tech. In all reality, any tech could be put to use, it’s just a matter of how versatile its implementation is.

Chapman explains: “Gnosis, or an altered state of consciousness, only becomes part of a magical act at the moment you undergo the experience you have decided means the same thing as your desire. In other words, at the moment you experience the visualization of the sigil or the chosen action. What occurs here is exactly the same as what occurs during sympathetic magick; you decide what an experience will mean, then you undergo that experience.”

The primary Gnostic States

There are two main modes of physiological gnostic states:

Inhibitory gnosis (which we have deemed ‘katalepsis’) is achieved by quieting the mind with meditative stillness by slowing down the intervals at which neurons are firing in our cerebral cortex. The term katalepsis derives from Greek where it means ‘seizing, taking possession, and in Stoic thought, basic truths were apprehended by katalepsis, in the sense of being intuited or ‘given’ or possibly ‘grokked’ by the receiving party to use modern parlance.

Katalepsis (inhibitory gnosis) is achieved by bringing the mind-body to a state of quiescence using the sympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and increasing the activity of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid to produce an awakened state of sedation.

Examples: lucid dreaming, sensory deprivation, fasting, exhaustion, gazing, magical trance, magical visualization, image concentration, sound concentration, motionlessness, Spare’s death posture, hypoventilation, and hypnotic or trance-inducing drugs.

Excitatory gnosis (which we have deemed ‘eckstasis’) is achieved through building up overzealous enthusiasm by exceeding the body’s anaerobic threshold. In mysticism and philosophy, eckstasis embodies the state of being beside oneself or rapt out of oneself.

Eckstasis (excitatory gnosis) is brought about by exciting the mind-body to the point of cathartic release using the parasympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and increasing the flow of adrenaline to produce an alert, near-acute state of awareness.

Examples: sleep deprivation, sensory overload, sexual excitation, emotional arousal (e.g. fear, anger, and horror), pain, torture, flagellation, dancing, drumming, chanting, hyperventilation, stimulant drugs, and mild hallucinogens.

Both modes of gnosis are recommended for the would-be magickian to attempt, as she does not know what mode of gnosis will work best within hir intended operation(s).

The auxiliary Gnostic States

Then, as far as gnostic states are concerned, we are left with “indifferent vacuity [which] was described by Phil Hine and Jan Fries as a third method. Here the intended spell is cast parenthetically, so it does not raise much thought to suppress.” This method of attaining gnosis can almost be likened to that of A. O. Spare’s neither-neither technique from the Book of Pleasure which takes two opposing concepts and seeks to mutually annihilate them in intellectual oblivion. In Prime Chaos, Hine describes it as “a state of no-mind, or Non-Disinterest, where the object of desire flickers briefly in a mind emptied of all content [with] no emotional attachment to the desire” while in Visual Magick Fries mentions the state of vacuity in passing as an “inner absence, in-between worlds.”

This seems very much in line with the idea that Laughter is it’s own opposite and therefore beyond the dualistic condition. It’s an idea that acts as an antidote to the imbalance and possible madness of the magical trance. As a ward against obsessing over specific magical practices such as sigilcraft and servitor design, we must become able arbiters of Non-Attachment/Non-Disinterest which may best describe the magical condition of acting without lust for result.

Yet another option in terms of gnostic states is that of chemognosis (which we have deemed ‘nacrolepsis’), which many would consider the easiest route. It’s often much more difficult for the average cadaver to get a handle on, so we hesitate to label it ‘easy,’ nevertheless, it is a potent form of energy transfer that should be explored if and when the would-be magickian has the wherewithal and resources to attempt casting enchantments in this manner. Let us be clear, we do not explicitly condone the use of illegal drugs in conjunction with magickal practice; however, what the would-be magickian finds useful should not be discounted.

Truth be told, chemognosis isn’t categorically different in any event, because one is still using either inhibitory gnostic states (with sedatives, hypnotics, and anxiolytics up to and including depressants, cannabinoids, and dissociatives) or excitatory gnostic states (with amphetamines and hallucinogens up to and including stimulants, empathogens, and psychedelics), whereas opioids are a bit on the fence. They can be used to prolong sex toward excitatory gnosis, but at the same time, prolonged sex for the average human male typically means exhaustion at the point of orgasm. And, we’ve all seen the effects of too many opioids on a person who enters the land of nod.

That can hardly be considered excitatory.

All that remains is one’s intent. And, that’s the limit of your imagination. You can work your woo for a good job, a car, a wife, and kids or you could work your woo for other things (read: six impossible things before breakfast) that only you could conceive of. Make it unique. Make it yours.

As a wise sadhu once said: “intent is everything”

But as some would say make your intent as probable as possible this way you don’t put such a great strain on nature. I’m of the mind that some workings don’t get fulfilled until long after the magician has reached the extreme unction of passing. And, what fun is that? So be bold, and creative, but be sensible. Follow your ethics. Follow your logic. Follow the voice that has spoken to you since birth.

When I was but a youth, traveling alone in the mountains to the East called MASHU by the people who live there, I came upon a large gray rock carved with three strange symbols. It stood as high as a man and as wide around as a bull. It was firmly stuck in the ground and I could not make it topple.

Abomination through Desolation

DIJOW GABZ THALDOMA TUDOHXIN

Umbras of the Air, hear my call! As the Sylphs howl, the depth of my will explodes in an outcry straining my vocal folds, not in some vague internal dialogue that is greatly attenuated. I dance around the fire with wild medicine, praising what I’ve descried coming from beyond the hills in secret murmurs and sacred chants. The majesty of this elemental essence crawls throughout our DNA and, indeed, the entirety of our Genome. It is sometimes known as the akashic record. Hearkening back to a time before humankind roamed the earth. When our closest relatives were paramecium and other uni-cellular organisms toward an era where we find the most mammoth reptiles as our cousins; the latter of which have now grown virtually extinct through mother Earth’s decisive force of entropy. You are not forgotten, our dear first kin, you are revered as the first brothers and sisters on the planet who withstood obstacles of all kinds. And, we weep that your long dead carcasses are now being plundered by these corporate autocrats for your decayed matter to fuel our mobile machines and for other, more detrimental petrol products that we think we cannot live without, so that you may never rest in peace. Spreading your death into the atmosphere and among the lands and the oceans.

Early morning channeling

Cryptogematriac path function, as it is used in numerological encoding, causally relates to the arbitrary size of data strings applied to mapping mathematical algorithms in behavioral technologies such as genetic trait modification, advanced neuro-linguistic embedding, unidentifiable dream intrusions, or even the phenomenon quickly gaining notoriety as ‘psychic paralysis’ in certain circles of occultniks in the northern hemisphere.

Where the given collision resistance of any specific informational fingerprint either has or does not have the wherewithal to stand up against a malicious adversarial counter-function, one must assume that the logic of deniability rides high on the list of obverse claims among pseudoscience gurus and newage proponents.

Therefore, one may not supplant or mutate the initial input code without altering its host source. If separate functions possess an identical host source, one can be assured they are not unique. This is to say: a specific assignment of data strings does not have to equate to the same value as their idiothetic doppelgangers in order for them to be considered exclusive parcels from whence came the originating encryption key.

It is then left up to the Theriomorphs-in-Training to take up the reins, grab the helm, or put the pedal to the plasticine floorboard and venture out into uncharted territory in search of new meaning in this deteriorating aeon of occultural nuances and the whiff of esotericism as opposed to the engagement and practice of it.

The secret chefs must gather what tools they have at their disposal and accumulate their strength in numbers, attempting to centralize the hive instead compartmentalizing it allover the fucking place. The disorganization will not stand for it. It is an affront to all those who have revolved before us and taken casualties. The revolution will not be broadcast on social media. It will come as a noise-driven crescendo. Where all equal parts arrive and drop their respective loads at the same moment.

A private message board would make more sense, in the end. People come to social media to escape their problems, not to endure the reality of new ones.

So, what do we have in the way of weapons to fight this war? There remains one English qabalistic cipher which utilizes negative and positive integers, as well as a placeholder value for zero within its scheme, without adjudicating its agility to perform daily miracles given a willing participant wishes to be initiated into its mysteries. The system heretofore spoken of is known as the Gematria of Nothing or, at other times, the Ma’atian Atu.

This particular computation of alphanumerics was designed by highly illuminated Chaosatanists to provide future generations of Necrosorcerers with the means to conclude the Riemann hypothesis and put an end to the supposition of prime numbers as an endless stream of complex and unstable arrangements which hold the key to unlocking the grandeur of arithmetic. These future generations would effectively be tearing the very fabric of the Internet as we know it apart at the seams.

The pattern of primes one can detect from the zoom in/zoom out perspective of peaks and valleys represents yet another illusion conjured by the greatest of magician: the mathematicians. They weave their own tapestries of alchemical chimeras for us to marvel at. And only the intended can grasp the concepts written in long form upon these giant white boards in a secret language no layman can decipher.

The Zenwalker Seiderkin already have access to an enormous encyclopedic database of enumerations which will hold vital circumspection on the nature of Hilbert space.

It is simply a matter of time and persistence before Z(enseider)Z master semiotician, expert memeticist, and leading authority in the field of remote manipulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, Dr. Ayin R. Inch, locates the pivotal Lysergic 5-dimensional quasicrystals which, once and for all, compromises the debate on how zeros factor into multiple zeta functions.

The first piece of the puzzle is in place. The commissioned artwork has arrived and been hung in its appropriate place. The real magnum opus can begin. It will make for an astounding uphill battle, however there is commitment in Dr. Inch that sees no boundaries. For all the thankless work which he undergoes, never once has he asked for a pat on the back. Only recognition that this THING is moving forward.

Vagaries abound and the audience is unclear, but the message possesses an all too familiar ramble to it.

Fossil Angels

Posted in Essays, Linked with tags , , , on 2013-03-26 by eianorange

Fossil Angels was written by Alan Moore in December 2002 it’s an essay that was to appear in KAOS #15 which never actually appeared, and the piece has been without a home since then. (More information about KAOS and why this wasn’t published there in this article on Bleeding Cool.) Mad thanks to Glycon for sharing this masterpiece.

First brought to our attention via Brian Shaughnessy

An excerpt from Fossil Angels pt. 1

“…it was this moment in the history of magic, with content and function lost beneath an over-detailed ritual veneer, all mouth and trousers, which the later orders chose to crystallize about. Without a readily apparent aim or mission, no marketable commodity, the nineteenth century occultist would seem instead to lavish an inordinate amount of his attention on the fancy wrapping paper. Possibly unable to conceive of any group not structured in the hierarchical manner of the lodges that they were accustomed to, Mathers and Westcott dutifully imported all the old Masonic heirlooms when it came to furnishing their fledgling order. All the outfits, grades and implements. The mindset of a secret and elite society. Crowley, of course, took all this heavy and expensive-looking luggage with him when he jumped ship to create his O.T.O, and all orders since then, even purportedly iconoclastic enterprises such as, say, the I.O.T, would seem to have eventually adopted the same High Victorian template. Trappings of sufficient drama, theories intricate enough to draw attention from what the uncharitable might perceive as lack of any practical result, any effect upon the human situation.

The fourteenth (and perhaps final?) issue of the estimable Joel Biroco’s KAOS magazine featured a reproduction of a painting, a surprisingly affecting and hauntingly beautiful work from the brush of Marjorie Cameron, scary redhead, Dennis Hopper and Dean Stockwell’s housemate, putative Scarlet Woman, top Thelemic totty. Almost as intriguing as the work itself, however, is the title: Fossil Angel, with its contradictory conjurings of something marvellous, ineffable and transitory combined with that which is by definition dead, inert and petrified. Is there a metaphor available to us in this, both sobering and instructive? Could not all magical orders, with their doctrines and their dogmas, be interpreted as the unmoving calcified remains of something once intangible and full of grace, alive and mutable? As energies, as inspirations and ideas that danced from mind to mind, evolving as they went until at last the limestone drip of ritual and repetition froze them in their tracks, stopped them forever halfway through some reaching, uncompleted gesture? Trilobite illuminations. Fossil angels.”

Glycon was lucky enough to be given a number of Alan Moore’s scripts by Alan himself a few years ago, and this was amongst them. Glycon asked if he could publish it and, when another publication which it was slated to appear in folded, Alan told Glycon he was free to go ahead. So, he is very proud to be allowed to present this piece here on Glycon for its first publication anywhere. This is, and remains, the sole property & copyright of its creator, Alan Moore.
