I echo Chris’s sentiments here though this attitude may not please all..

And if that knowledge REQUIRES conscious interaction with the Machine Kingdom--as a friend and fellow traveler--will that be a problem?
We are not in the 13½ century any more... a LOT has changed, rendering much of the ancient research "inoperable" in existing environmental and sociological conditions. If I am to put this information "out in the blue" (to play on LBs comments on Antiquatis), there are "natural consequences" that follow...
Maybe LB health issues are influencing his thoughts on those consequences. daniel on the other hand, would release the info not in the blue but in the turquoise..
You'll be absorbing for eternity before you make a single move with this attitude. Which is fine if you choose this. If I think about it in imagery, I see myself sitting in my living room, refusing to get up from my seat because I haven't codified everything in the room from that particular point of reference. Not to mention the fact that the room changes and gets bright sometimes and gets dark at others, the mechanics of which I can't know unless I get up and go outside. So I'll sit here and absorb all that I can about the room. And I'll be able to tell you a million things about everything in here, but I'll have no actual frame of reference where practical application of my will goes because I never got up and moved. Then there's the other part of this, that say I do finally decide to get up and leave the room, my legs may be so atrophied from sitting still for so long that I fall over on my face. But then... I'll have a new reference frame with which to start to understand the 300 carpet fibers immediately in front of my eyes. So that'll keep me entertained for a while.
I'm completely lost now... maybe I should get you guys to encrypt my next paper!
I thiink there was quite a bit that got lost in translation. Looking forward to the little fiddly bits!daniel wrote: ↑Tue Dec 12, 2017 1:34 pmI'm completely lost now... maybe I should get you guys to encrypt my next paper!
We have not discussed the "blue mist" here yet, as that discovery is brand new, so I was just joking around with myself with the inferences LB made on Antiquatis about it.
I think I figured out where the paper needs to go. Got an outline, now to all the "little fiddly bits" that go between the headings. (Quoting Slartibartfast.)
One thing about natural law that proves to be true over and over again even though building up the fortitude to proceed "into the blue," into the unknown, is that the Universe rewards courage. Courage is not the absence of fear. It is doing the thing that needs to be done despite fear.daniel wrote: ↑Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:29 pmI was throwing together my notes on magick to write another "Star Wars" paper, "Return of the Wizards." But I am not sure if this is a topic that I should address with the general public. The real, magical arts are not something to be trifled with--it ISN'T Harry Potter and if approached without the proper honor and respect, can have some serious consequences. I really do not want the karma associated with that.
Have you seen old Kungfu movies where the master has a disciple who turned to be evil and master was quite angry and devastated because of his trust was betrayed and teachings were used maliciuosly, which was not original intent?Andrew wrote: ↑Thu Dec 14, 2017 10:07 pmSo it comes back to fear. Are you going to limit your teachings by reaching a level of complexity you are comfortable is enough to shield you from any imaginary karma or are you going to be courageous, dish out what you know is true, and let the Universe ultimately reward you for it?
I have a feeling I'm going to see this very situation expanded on in detail tonight when I see The Last Jedi. More to come on this topic there will be.Ilkka wrote: ↑Fri Dec 15, 2017 1:07 pm

I do understand the severity of that and I understand the other thing too that it should not be the masters fault if the teachings are used in "dark or light" arts. But its just me, perhaps this thing is not so "Grey" after all if it needs shielding from darkness.
When you attack a problem, the solution will fight you to the bitter end.
