Your life has two elements. You cannot have life and not have both elements in it. It has the “intentional” and it has the “chaotic”. There is a vast field of energies you are connected to and set in motion that you didn’t intend to. This is your life’s “chaos”. All energy interlaces, literally all. There is no actual causal separation, thus your “intention” actually means very little.
Chaos is a dialogue. Just because it hasn’t made sense to you yet, doesn’t mean it can’t. Any metaphysical work, to be strong, has to allow for complexity. Do you actually know how you have succeeded or failed at doing anything, ever? If you have successfully done something, do you really know why you succeeded?
“Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth.” Tom Barrett
“Chaos is the score upon which reality is written.” Henry Miller (American Author and Writer, 1891-1980)
“Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.” Henry Brooks Adams (American writer, 1838-1918)
I will not be giving a scholarly discussion of chaos. The mathematics would be meaningless to most, and the theoretical ramification pointlessly obtuse. So I will focus more on what it might mean to those with a metaphysical view or… Seek More
My interest is in postulating what personal benefits might be expected in a given framework by purposefully introducing the seed of chaos into an otherwise stable system? Doing it wrong? I help my wife “do it wrong”. It goes surprisingly… Seek More
You cannot generate the chaotic forces, these “strange attractors”, but you can merge with them. A strange attractor is an observable repeating pattern that might even seem acausal, but is enduring despite our failure to see causes for it. Thus… Seek More
How to use chaos? Feel ready for that? Chaotically. Excellent. Chaos is a dialogue. Just because it hasn’t made sense to you yet, doesn’t mean it can’t. In fact, chaos is the reason why two people can report success in… Seek More
Now the actual application of chaos, instead of theory. I will paint a big picture. It’s just an allegory, so don’t take it literally. But it will explain what I mean to explain. Every being in the universe is standing… Seek More
So who lives in your head? Under what sea of imagination and concern? Before we talked about chaos theory and philosophy, today we are talking about chaos magick and a meta-paradigm of practice. Who’s on first? You are under a… Seek More
We believe what we experience. We either control or are controlled by our experience. Which do you prefer? I prefer to control my experience. Do you know how to control your experience? I only watch movies at home. I never… Seek More
I need to start believing I’m a playboy millionaire with fancy gadgets. You can’t just spontaneously believe whatever you might arbitrarily choose. Belief has to be anchored in experience. Otherwise, you are just making noise in your head. This is… Seek More
Do you want the keys to the doors of your own perception? Ever notice how long an experience can linger with you? Like say how long a song can remain stuck in your head? Ever wonder why that happens or… Seek More
So back to chaos magick… Instead of conforming to a traditional set of practices and symbols that are traditionally seen to have meaning, the practitioner of chaos magick experiments with symbols, both traditional ones and ones that their experience or… Seek More
