Philos is an old Greek word for something that everyone on BALG already knows first-hand. Hopefully this entry will give the reader a good word to help them articulate this useful concept.
Philo is the first half of the word ‘philosophy’ and is usually translated as ‘to love’. Adding the ‘s’ makes it mean sort of mean ‘the love’, but philos is Not love.
Philos is used as a noun in the Greek book of Acts. Somone adresses one of the apostales and tells him, “Go gather your philos”. That sort of meant “your homies”, and sort of meant, “your coven”. Your philos are the entities that you can talk to about where to hide the body of Christ.
Philos is when a philosopher puts on his philosophy hat. It is not so much an emotion as it is a belief or a value. If you do the philos, you get the sophia. It helps you gain knowledge and understanding to suit your own designs.
Philos is a specific lack of being hard to comminicate with. We embody philos when we read a far-out post from another occultist. When bend our mind a little to see their vision rather than posting “wat teh fek brah?”
Love is spread all over the place until it hardly has a specific meaning. Philos is super simple and easy👌
