Wandering around the UK

Returning from the ancestral Sussex pile along the south coast by rail, my dilapidated and delayed train left me with an hours wait at Portsmouth and an opportunity to wander around the Naval Dockyard. One of our new aircraft carriers had as many scaffoldings, tarpaulins, and cranes on it as Nelson’s old 1805 flagship HMS Victory. That seemed to say a lot about Britain – a place with a glorious past and an uncertain future, where few things seem to work very well anymore. Perhaps we should concentrate on fixing The Victory first – at least we know it works. It has fantastic damage resistance, and the addition of some missile launchers would give it a longer reach. Okay it’s a bit slow, but its totally green, requiring no fuel at all.

I had a delightful visit to the Scottish Highlands to visit family and enjoy two thing in particular that Scotland does better than England. Firstly, awesome Steak Pies that put the ghastly Cornish pasties of my adopted homeland in the Southwest to shame. A business opportunity must lay there. Secondly, huge expanses of a much more spectacular species of gorse bush which often lines the highland highways with a psychedelically vibrant and almost hallucinogenic yellow glory when the sun shines on it. Best of all, the damnable Scottish Nationalist Party went into a probably terminal nosedive during my stay, justifying my many years of polemic and cursing.

Endorsement for Baphomet - History, Ritual, and Magic of the World’s Most Famous Occult Icon, by Michael Osiris Snuffin.

Michael Osiris Snuffin has written a definitive Theometry of Baphomet. He shows us exactly how and why this deity-form arose and developed into a major occult meme that has inspired many of the leading magicians, romantics, and rebels of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty first centuries.

Impressive research and scholarship has gone into this book.

If we define magic as the use of imaginary phenomena to create real effects, then the magical creation and evolution of the Baphomet concept has certainly had a profound effect on the ideas and actions of several generations of occultists, sexual non-conformists, and rebel mystics.

The author gradually reveals a deep personal relationship with Baphomet and provides practical meditations and rituals through which the reader may approach and invoke the deity-form. By his magic he has made himself a High Priest of Baphomet.

Back down on the Welsh shores, a sweep of the beach yielded a few more sea-worn pieces of aerated autoclaved concrete block. The surf has remained poor and the sea cold, so the vape accessories recycled and saved over the winter have found a use in the space-yards in the construction of a couple of destroyers for the Skaron fleet.

This month’s esoteric musings on Quantum Ontology.

The diagram shows 5 of the six dimensions, two of space and three of time with the plane of imaginary time superimposed on the spatial plane as it acts as a pseudo-space. The cones show retarded and advanced quantum waves spreading out from, and converging at, the origin. In a fully 6 dimensional representation the circles would appear as spheres. This representation implies that deeper symmetries underlie superposition and entanglement.
