I was reading into the psychocartography posts yesterday. It has been stated numerous times to be the key to developing communication with the time/space self and developing ethical control units. So I downloaded a voice recorder app to do my best recording my first set of dreams that I usually forget. So I want to describe an interesting dream last night and see if my psychocartography skills are on-point.
Hey daniel, you're in it!
It was nighttime in a forest that turned into pretty much being my backyard. I was told about these berries that would give me energy. I called out to an opening in the woods asking for daniel, and the character Eleven from Stranger Things
came out as a messenger, and we ran to the area where the berries were. I remember labeling the berries as hyacinth in my mind, but they were just common, weed-like seeds in appearance. I asked, do these berries give you energy? Energy to help someone. I was thinking, to do magick. She responded, "they do, but why can't you lie about it?" So I plucked a branch of the berries and started running back home. Eleven was running behind me, sort of as a guardian, to reaffirm that she was there, like a protector, that I wasn't crazy. As I started to wake up, running up the hill almost home, my body was actually huffing and puffing, like I was actually running in my bed.
The response was interesting. "Why can't you lie about it," struck me as the anti-intellectual mindset that is called for when doing Tier One magical rituals. The Intellectual Decompression Chamber as Anton LaVey puts it. Invoking the magical personality as Ra puts it. The power of the placebo as "science" knows it.
Taking the landscape into account, this power is local. It is literally in your own backyard. It is with you. You're just not conscious of this yet, which is why it was dark at night.
My unconscious mind selected Eleven, humorously to my waking self, as she:
1.) has superpowers in the show.
2.) I recently described the show on the ConsciousHugs board, and
3.) daniel was the first one I've discussed my thoughts on how magick is possible after internalizing his papers and all they entail.
In The Satanic Bible
, the anti-intellectual mindset is known, temporary ignorance
, which is necessary to invoke before the practitioner, "can put his pure and willful desires to work for himself, in the projection and utilization of his imagery." It has been suggested on this forum the image, the imagination, and sight are vital components in doing magick (I-mage
,) and lately I've been having these thoughts I'm just not seeing
as much as can potentially, visually be sensed and cognized. From The Three Faces of Mind
It is also important to realize that we never see objectively. We see only when impulses reach the occipital region of the neocortex. Before arriving, incoming impulses must pass through the lateral geniculate of the thalamus of the limbic system, as shown in the following drawing and as discussed by Drs. Eric R. Kandel and James H. Schwartz.
Thus sight is also emotional or subjective. Only verification can make it objective.
Verification can be made through social consensus or through usage of any of the remaining bodily senses, and any pain or pleasure involved through either
case. Since social consensus has the power to alter the verification
of something, it in effect has the power to alter the very existence
of that thing relative to the brain. The brain can actually not see
something that is right before its eyes if it has no concept of it, until at least a second sensual interaction is made either through the other bodily senses or by suggestion. "You will not panic. You will look at the fnord and see it."
I will progress assuming everyone here at a young age went under the spell "magic isn't real" fnord. The first panic that sends one's mind crashing to an unknown earth separated from mind.
Magick makes objective
change "in accordance with the Will, which would, using normally accepted methods, be unchangeable," and so any change through use of magick must be verifiable. The power to manifest
through the use of Tier One rituals or effectively utilizing of the Law of Attraction grows in belief
when one's thoughts and desires actualize in the physical over time. This provides tactile evidence to the brain to begin deconditioning
the belief systems that support the concept of amagicalism, that matter and mind are independent from one other, to begin seeing and cognizing that mind and matter affect one another and is a two-way street in dynamic motion. The behavioral process, however, is methodically slow and subjective to the awareness and willpower of the individual, but ethical control units are gained
if one continues to hold oneself accountable for everything they have created in one's life. Such is the journey of developing principles. Tier Two
Magick is where the fun of ethical development begins.
Temporary ignorance is necessary in training to become a full-fleged mage, because it allows seeming "mistakes" to happen in reality that the normal, intellectual mind would instinctually criticize (*). The suspension of disbelief
in theatre is related to this willful permission. The reptilian brain does not like mistakes in reality!
find a cause for everything
. That is how it carries out its primary function: self-preservation. Whether to fight or flight; it is motion-oriented. Anything it cannot find a cause for, that it survives, it wants to reenact
for further understanding for further ensurement of survival. But since the cause cannot be repeated due to ignorance being replaced with the criticism of the primary function, and nescience of magick, the event is usually mystified and ritualized through ceremony. The unknown, magickal cause often later becomes personified and worshiped for being outside of themselves and more powerful than they. (See: Religion, superstition.)
What the original witness of the magickal event didn't know was that they caused
it. Psychocartography teaches us that everything in our dream is ourself. The symbols, the interactions, and the landscape are the inside-out projection of our waking consciousness. Our inner-most feelings, thoughts, and desires interplay and reciprocally become the external world. The actual dreaming process takes place in the same
Reptilian brain that wants to know the cause of everything in our waking world. Thus, reciprocally, wanting to know everything is the last desire
the reptilian brain has when our consciousness flips to the cosmic sector. When the dreamscape comes up and we recognize the cause of the why we're seeing a certain object, and enough psychocartography was done to recognize the object is a symbol
, we "get the message" from the soul, and the reptilian brain is essentially "poked" from the other-side by the change in behavior, that is, just being aware.
Clear communication between the body and soul becomes established and you're free to "holodeck" it out.
Through this body/soul communication a new dynamic of life is revealed, and since this new dynamic can be explored for all its worth when the body needs to rest, a new dynamic of life should
reciprocally be available in the waking world. That would be magick. Basically, we should be able to see differently when the reptilian brain is exposed to more and more sudden magick. Just like how it changes its behavior over time when it is exposed to the Law of Attraction working in its favor, and sees how personal, internal beliefs that are things in 3D time affect our spatial circumstances and quality of life in 3D space.
When we dream, through our psychocartography, we become aware of something that was already there. In our waking world, we should ignore that which was never there: the amagical world. Everything we were taught about reality is wrong and backward. When Obi-Wan teaches Luke, "your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them," he is suggesting your eyes can limit your abilities until you understand the working of a powerful, underlying order. One's success in doing magick should increase through willful ignorance while practicing magick, as the doubt instilled in our brains by the "magic isn't real" fnord is repealed for the possibility of sudden strange synchonicities in any form, that the reptilian brain will have to adapt to in the peripheral, before it can look at in the eye and not fall asleep.

* Mainsteam criticism has become egoic and not holistic. The true definition of criticism is simply to know what is missing and respond with what is needed. At best, true "constructive" criticism is an act of rapport between two or more like-minds progressing through logic a better, more complete vision. In its devolved form, it is seeking control over another's mind.
**As daniel said, if you are balanced in body and soul, then your waking consciousness and dream consciousness are one and the same. This bendy-action
may make a muggle's stomach turn just watching it. If they saw anything like it in real-life, the closest thing their psyche could associate the behavior with is in a dream, and so they'd pass out.
