I see. You are weasling around what I have written by bringing up points that are entirely irrelevant to the substance of the discussion. This is obfuscation, but I’ll I’ll indulge you.
Your ‘argument’ is a non sequitur. We gain power through creation. This has been demonstrated countless times even through something as mundane as the invention and production of technology. If you care to contest this state of affairs, a counter-example will not be logically sufficient. Such won’t change the fact that power can and has been gained through creation. In magic, however, it is the primary principle of everything one does: one employs ones living imagination in order to change the world according to ones will. That is creation by definition, and there is no power to be gained in magic without it, for that is magic. Naming is an essential part of this.
I'm talking about the core here.
I’m responding to your original question, not your armchair blathering about your hypothetical ‘core’.
This is not true. Reality is very objective.
Yes it is true. I’m not talking about the objectivity of reality but the ontology of the spirit that physically appears in the evocation. Try again, genius.
Azazel doesn't lie when he says that it's subjective, he only doesn't reveal the whole picture.
I don’t think you’re comprehending what I wrote. “Things”, which are necessarily named, are objects of thought and creations of the human mind. Reality exists behind these creations, . Just as ‘objective’ reality informs the creation of these ‘subjective’ ideas, so, in the practice of magic, the ‘subjective’ ideas can inform the creation of ‘objective’ reality through the living imagination.
Bottom line is this: you can control what you can consciously perceive.
I can consciously perceive a wild bull elephant charging at me. By your logic that would refute your statement … just saying.
Actually, perception is often sufficient for ‘control’ without consciousness of the contents of that perception. Animals, possessing no conceptual language and thus no possibility of becoming conscious of anything, prove this every day. Of course, it’s entirely insufficient for the creative act of magic, which requires consciousness and, therefore, naming of what is perceived.
If you knew psychology you'd understand.
That’s presumptuous of you, much like everything else you’ve written.
Think about subliminal messaging.
That is highly contested, but irrelevant.
No, the reason the same spirit can be evoked in multiple places at the same time is because reality experiences itself in multiple subjective minds.
The principle of identity makes that proposition a priori absurd. Two differentiated phenomena occurring in two different places at the same time can impossibly be identical. They can, however, be emanations of the same source.
And time doesn't exist in the astral.
That’s absurd. You can speak of square circles too, but that won’t make what you are saying meaningful in any way. There is time where there is change. Change exists on the astral, and therefore time, and moreover the possibility to conceive of a dimension of time. And that is all the ‘time dimension’ of physics is: a mathematical construct projected onto a world in constant flux, that is, actually, full of presumptions that probably fly past the reality of it all, and even more so on the chaotic astral planes. If you mean to say that such a dimension of time on the astral will not correspond linearly to that on the physical, so that what might be called ‘time travel’ seems to occur, that would make a lot more sense.
Again, I'm talking about the true name of the spirit's core, not an aspect.
I’m not talking about ‘aspects’ or your alleged ‘core’. I’m talking about the spirit standing before you in the evocation.
