Recommended to Keith by: Eric Tiedemann
Useful for the established student of Western magick as a means of challenging unnecessary orthodoxy, but I would not suggest taking it as a replacement orthodoxy. This is particularly true of the unfortunate and misguided (though interesting) attempts to misapply poorly understood—and since disproven—idiosyncratic variants of quantum mechanical theorizing to the proffered world view. This again may be useful as a mental exercise, but it certainly should not be held to have truth value in any sc ...more

Recommends it for: any open-minded individual

Extremely interesting read. Even if you are a complete skeptic, this book has some incredibly interesting philosophic/world-view perspectives on life, religion, and occultism.

This book provides meaningful insight on defining your own beliefs. If you are interested in Chaos theory, this is an essential read.
"Good but MEH at the same time"

It is written in a nice witty manner, and it has some good information in it and interesting ideas.
It is a good read for those who want to challenge the westernised stereotypical "orthodoxy" but it is not a "replacement" for it.


What puts me off in this book, is that some parts of it reek of arrogance. It is as if the author wants to point out "how special" he is and how everyone else is just wrong. And I think this is simply done in order for the author to justi

This is my second, possibly third, reading of this book. I'm not sure why, but I found it more resonating this time. The chapters on physics are a bit of a slog, but the rest was more applicable than on other readings. I guess you just need to go back to some books to extract everything you can from them. This was certainly one of those. No doubt, in years to come I'll re-read it and think, what a load of bollocks. But it worked for me right now.

I plan to reread in hopes of absorbing more on the second go. I haven't followed the equations very well.
A very strong first half, but the latter half lacks a lot of strength.

“Conspiracy theory, like causality, works fantastically well as an explanatory model but only if you use it backwards. The fact that we cannot predict much about tomorrow strongly indicates that most of the explanations we develop about how something happened yesterday have (like history in general) a high bullshit content.” 3 likes
