the evolution of everything: how new ideas emerge


Evolution
i don't know ...
intention is story - full of sound and fury ...
event is King - happening by its own right ...
possibility causes choice - the spiral spins.
Bozo Faust

provoked from Matt Ridley's article in Wall Street Journal via Joshua's post on facebook

and Matt's book , "The Evolution of Everything"

Interesting to compare with ...
"Magick is aptly defined as the science and art of doing one's Will - achieving one's purpose, fulfilling the Law of THELEMA. Thus theoretical magick is the art of perfecting mental processes, and practical magick the art of perfecting volitional processes. These definitions are hardly conclusive, but they are scholarly enough for practical purposes, I think. I think that every member should be drilled in ceremonial magick until he subconsciously acquires the attitude of doing the right thing at the right moment with omnipotence at his command and eternity at his disposal. The ideas that dissolve the sin complex, viz that nothing really matters, that it is impossible to make a mistake, etc, cannot be rooted in the organism by any other method."
CFR 1922 via Breck's website

What strikes me is how much of philosophy is self centric

the pendulum swings ...
perhaps now  it swings from part to whole  ...
notwithstanding self's instinct for itself.

Mark de LA says
Elsewhere in GW magic has been defined as that which you don't know how to do so it happens by magic.

P.2617- #41,1 82-12-3-15-13-46 Wed
" HSU, Waiting, Protraction, Binding one's Time, Lingam of Moon, Daath of Yesod, Creative Impulse attracting the Restricted Universe.  Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat; kon pp (P.1867, P.1617) These references are important; "manna" is a gift from heaven; a true theory of magic is not derived merely by studying what has been written of it, but rather from experience!  ... Sensation & Conception are two sides of the same coin.  It's all in the way you look at it.  Abstraction can divide unity into numerous categories, but the Reality is still a Unity - see Lib L; "None breathed the Light, etc - & two- I am divided for Love's Sake for the chance of Union - the Break in Continuity is Maya.  Surfing is Fun!"


Most of LOA seems to happen by magic although Abraham claims you attract things out of the vortex. But then people have things happen without ever hearing of LOA.

some random thoughts which are not so very random ...

i changed Bozo's poem from "circle" to "spiral" to make it ring truer.  The poem itself is planely spoken with plenty of symmetry and no mysterious symbols ... except perhaps "King" but that should be clear enough ... we all know what a King is.   It doesn't say much, just scopes out the edges in which we live.

Thing is Magik and LOA and most of Religion keeps promising our egos a story of our personal control.  It's all about the control ... and yes some of it goes the opposite way: giving up external control for inner control (but they call it peace) ... same thing really.

Notice how the larger the context the less the control anyway ... another platitude expressed

Me, i am looking to strike a different balance ... a different agreement with Creation ... i tire of the old ones, encrusted as they are with the he-said-she-said of the ages ... sorry, i like to think for myself, the thoughts are crisper and mean more to me that way.

I don't like thinking like PR does of "infinite nothing" imorotant or exaggerated or its negative to crreate a positive ... it just smaks of a trick to break the mind.   i think "if you meditate on a lie long enough,  it will ring true, and appear to be a grand discovery" ... AABE works for lies as well as what is so
