Hey what’s up? I haven’t posted here in ages, but I have a topic worth discussing. So here we go.
After learning how to evoke spirits and seeing an intelligence you can interact with leads a person to a feeling that it is something outside of themselves. That is true for the most part. However when it comes to the goetia, there is something that makes me want to re-evaluate my perspective.
So the story goes, that king Solomon built his temple with the help of demons and cast them into a brass vessel, after the temple was built and these unseen forces were bounded up in a brass vessel and thrown into the bottom of the lake. That’s my butchered version of the allegory.
So Crowley states in his version that the 72 demons of the goetia are portions of the brain. So with all the talk of NLP, self-hypnosis, autogenic training, binuaral beats and subliminal mp3s, etc. there are ways to communicate with your subconscious.
Honestly, most people on this forum need to take note of subconscious programming. Learning brainwave states and how to interact in that realm if consciousness, cuts the bullshit of petitioning a random demon to pay your bills for you. So learning how to control the elements before you bother a random demon makes the experience more worthwhile. Besides, if you can gain respect of outside influences, you might be exposed to unseen forces. Just saying.
So anyone who actually tries to evoke a spirit from the goetia will report something in the room with them. Now there are some who say that it’s all in your head, but you don’t know how big your head is (duquette)
Now, we have a manual that shows you how to evoke unseen forces to build a temple. My question is how do you decipher the codex, if the goetia is a manual to over-ride the subconscious mind. Where is the rest of the manual?
Well, I never figured it out. But I have a couple of working ideas. As of now I have 72 sigils and an account of an allegory that hints at subconscious programming. At this point I pulled out my college books and tried to match up everything. I don’t have a working manual, yet.
I’m not inclined to post my work, just yet. Not that I have something to hide, but most internet surfers are lazy and take truth at face value. So I don’t want to throw up a how to and it’s more of a slap in the face to the authors who wrote about the goetia.
However, my method is that I drew out the portions of the brain in relation to heirachy of the goetia. Each portion of the brain is assigned a demon. Kings to dukes. Map it out, do the work. Then, I redrew each sigil to fit the model.
Has anyone done this? Or am I way off track? Not sure, but I took the step into that dark road. I don’t mind posting my work, I just don’t want my way of doing things overshadow what the book was meant for, whatever the true nature may be. So if anyone has their point of view on this topic, I would love to hear it.
