[quote=“Baphomet, post:33, topic:456”][quote=“DK The Mage, post:31, topic:456”]at any rate - manifesting 100 Mil would be quite a feat - and if you actually end up getting that done - more power too ya. For me personally though - I wouldn’t ever need that kind of money, which is why I would be comfortable with 15Gs per month. But 100Mil in and of itself would be an impressive feat. There’s no doubt about that.
But I did want to make a quick point. You brought up a bunch of counter points - such as car insurance, land taxes, etc … my point is, if one were a true magician and master of their environment - those would be petty worries. Now, I’m nowhere near that place either where I could just poof up any fucking thing I needed at any moment - but that would be a god damned bad ass place to be. 100Mil won’t buy you protection if you get caught in a dark corner by yourself at gunpoint - total power would. 100Mil wouldn’t bail you out of jail on a no-bail charge, but absolute power would. Get what I’m saying? 100Mil’s not going to abracadabra a plate of food if you’re stranded in the middle of the desert. So, I see what you’re saying, but to me - I’d rather be able to produce whatever I needed whenever I needed it.[/quote]
Interesting point. I apologize, I missed the part where you said to manifest a high paying job. As for the $100 million, one wouldn’t be able to just manifest it to appear in their bank account. The magician wouldn’t be able to explain how it got there. I’m sure the IRS would love to hear that story! Anyway, there are plenty of vehicles one could utilize to get that $100 million. The lottery is one option, manifesting a rich husband/wife from Beverly Hills, South Beach Miami, Upper East Side Manhattan, Alpine New Jersey, etc etc, get them to fall in love with you (via occult methods of course) and either divorcing them and taking a huge ass settlement or staying and enjoy the benefits of high society by association…is another option. One could manifest the next billion dollar start up and sell it to venture capitalists and their Wall Street ilk.
So many ways to manifest the money. But I understand that not everyone has the same goals and desires. $100 million for me could be pocket change to the next magus who wants to be a billionaire, while yet another magician simply wants to have enough to just pay the bills and a bit extra at the end of the month. To each their own. But for me, obscene wealth is the ultimate goal and I intend to use evocation to get it.[/quote]
Oh, absolutely. In fact, for me - I wouldn’t mind having some way to take care of everything mundane and earthly while I focused 100% on ascent - and 100Mil would surely do that. But I’m also a bit of an old fashioned ass-face like that too - I would want to, in some part, have earned it in a way I feel I would appreciate it. Maybe that’s something I need to reconsider as well though.
