I recently mentioned the 8 primordial gods of Ancient Egypt. Essentially equal, among them Kek (darkness) and Heh (infinity). 4 gods to match 4 goddesses, total equality.
Names of power are well-known in magic(k) groups, but here’s another slant on why we keep winning.
OT: We have middle names to hide us from witches.
“An experienced magician with only a pinch of salt and one word can perform a ritual more powerful than a neophyte reading all the barbarous names he can get his hands on.”
Technically, cooking is witchcraft (cauldron was the typical cooking pot).
Hedge witchcraft is long misunderstood, it was ancient medicine.
“In any case, the belief that sounds and sound combinations have mystical power goes back in the Western Mystery Tradition to the Phoenicians (I was having lunch with such a researcher the other day). The ancients both east and west believed that sound vibration and letter sounds had power. The problem with the Western Mystery Tradition is that much of the specific knowledge about it has been lost/destroyed.”
While discussing potential Satanic cults connected to spirit cooking, I think it wise to distinguish from the 14yo chucking a cinnamon stick into her hot chocolate to make her crush like her back.
“On a conceptual level, there is power in ideas; and names are expressions of ideas, so there is power in them due to that. It’s possible to use the power of ideas without using names, eventually bypassing language completely…………”
This longer explanation is accurate and lives on in pop culture e.g. V for Vendetta’s Ideas are bulletproof. Their vectors are not.
Why does the right keep winning?
“It’s tough to put to words but it’s the essence of gematria and a lot of kabbalah. You examine the meaning of numbers, letters and words (both inherent and artificial) and examine your own personal connections and associated meanings for numbers, letters and words until it all gets so convoluted and connected that the meaning turn meaningless. Then you’re supposed to be able to interact with the living spirits of each letter and number and word.”
A fairly useful summary of the rise of Kekism.
Ironic that it’s Jewish, does the Alt Right have a golem?
If you know your occult stuff, you’ll know it’s actually a Tibetan tulpa.
I’m not saying I believe in this, but it’s a conspiracy about a conspiracy about a…..
Are memes actually magic spells? Chanted by enough people, it must be possible, if you believe in prayer.
We are not accustomed to fleshed-out characters. I think plenty of people online could write a bio for Pepe at this stage. This is unusual. Something to mull.
Magical thinking about a cartoon frog isn’t as bad as thinking Hogwarts is real.
It isn’t as psychotic as believing in Muh Magic Dirt either.
