This is something I have been pondering for quite some time now. As occultist we seek after the mystery and do our best to decode it. We try and make contact with entities outside our normally constructed reality. We do our best to both elevate ourselfs and pull these beings closer and closer to our world. but how much can we really understand about the nature of reality outside the one we experience?
In line with Gnostic thought we are trapped/experiencing in a carefully constructed prison/illusionary world of finite existence. The purpose for us being here is debateble within itself, but my question is how much can we actually peak behind the curtain?
Can we really understand the nature of spirits like demons, djinn, and gods? beings who outside the finite representations we interact with in evocations(even in the case of physical manifestation), exist as potentially infinite, timeless consciousness who exist in conditions that we couldn’t possibly understand do to our apparatus(minds) being finely tuned to our existence of 5 senses.
to simplify how much can we really understand the infinite layered nature of reality so long as we exist as finite beings with no real way to experience realms that do not conform to experiencing with sight, taste, smell, touch, and hearing? and how much of this can we really trust to exist objectively if our subjective reality “colors” everything we view from the levels of existence outside ours so that we can understand it?
