Curious as to everyone’s thoughts on something that’s been on my mind a while. Many of the topics covered in the occult are pretty common. Some for good reason and others out of mere trend. I often wonder why we see so few new areas, practices and traditions being invented or discovered. Now bare in mind I’m not being to specific here.
Everyone tends to follow the same areas of practice and quite often their beliefs. Most xo clusions I’d say come from commonly believed information rather than real contemplation.
If you were to remove all occult books on magick and sit a person down to start it all over, how different would it be?
In science thw theory is if you destroy all trace of discovery the same discoveries would be made again.
But could we say the same for magick? Would we discover the same gods, demons etc. Would we discover the same magical interests like tarot and runes. Or would we end up finding totally new things.
I find things like tarot, runes etc are done out of popularity. It’s convenient and everyone knows more or less what it is, even non magick folk.
My question is what is the occult doing now that isnt influenced by popular trend. What are the new methods of divination or evocation? What new practices have we found or evolved. New spirits or demons?
But of a rambly post but had it on my mind tonight.
