Germany: A woman was scene in combat with a lean man.

It's where she was last spotted. I've been gathering all the articles I can and whatever data comes in, it's ridiculous how many hours I spend researching when everyone else is sleeping. Everything I have found all points to her, and she's tearing her way across the globe and through Executor's clones to hunt down the original. "Tearing through" might be too strong of a term. Executor's clones aren't easy things to kill, I've received mockery emails from the man himself saying how her condition is a mess. And I believe it now after reading another article. A woman bandaged up, still bleeding, a thick tree branch in her hand as she fought against a lean man. Yea, I believe it alright.
I've been dreaming of her since after I escaped Ferus. I think Executor has found a connection now. He hasn't shown up which leads me to believe he's unable to locate me, which is good in its own way. The Caged One works herself day in and day out, while I'm asleep and awake, defending whatever it is she's been keeping locked up. Executor manages to weasle his way in and all I see is her, fighting his clones. She's no longer a pacifist, it would seem. Willing to do what it takes to get the job done. Mystery is getting stronger, it's alarming really. I can't imagine what she'll be like when we see each other. I need to talk to her.

I don't know what is happening. Frequent visits from the Executor are making things strange on my end. Whatever connection he found is allowing me to leech back through him. If he was allowing it he wouldn't have reacted so violently when he found out. I'm going to write fully on that on my own blog soon. Have a lot of updates to do so I guess just keep an eye out for it.

Thuggee has also been reported by MASC to be attacking more proxies. He seems to be drawn in when they come together now and then, bigger group the more he's attracted to their position. His merciless killing streak has not changed in the slightest. So, be warned proxies.

DeMii informed me Proxy 85 found and delivered Lullaby back to her. What interests me is why, on top of which from what I've heard from her he was also able to pass the wards. So does that mean the boy means no harm? I find it unlikely and surprising considering the past events, and him being one of Executor's charges. But you can't judge everyone as a whole, so I intend to investigate the matter soon.
Prosper has been awfully quiet, last I heard from a pleasant little email was that he was attacking Road Runner and she was as well attacking him. They've been in conflict for a while now it would seem, which begs me to ask: Why?
Maybe that file will help. I'll post it on my own blog soon.

Lucas and Joel have passed away, Drake as well. Elaine attempted as much. Three more people, gone to the graves.
Going to keep moving forward. Mystery and I will push forth until we meet up once again.
Everyone, be careful. If you need anything just shoot me a line, the sanctuary is around if you need it.

Stay safe.

 I started this as a response to a question by Uriel, but it grew to be too large to be a simple reply. So I made it a post instead.

Uriel said: I Wanted to know more about this Abomination and how people usually get involved in all this.


This is what I have observed. I won't claim to be a scientist or a psychologist, but I am a bibliophile. heh I read, I learn. Observing... watching the world go by and learning from it, that's just another way of reading to me.

Others are welcome to add to this or disagree. There are already links to theories which go into his origins in the Slender theory section, so I won't go into that here. This post is strictly about how people become "involved" in this.

There are three basic ways that the infection seems to spread. The first and current primary source of infection occurs when someone discovers the videos or a blog and through anxiety or paranoia or some unmeasurable level of awareness attracts the attention of the entity. They then introduce others to it via blog or vlog, spreading the infection. Some have argued and taken steps based on this argument that if runners and proxies were taken out of the equation (IE killed), and all record of the Slenderman's existence erased from the internet and elsewhere, that we could destroy him, starve him. This argument is based on the idea that our awareness of the entity is necessary to its continued existence. Based on first hand experience however, I cannot accept this argument. The possibility of people being helped by the experience of others outweighs the argument of reducing infection through "extreme sanction." At best the murder of the innocent victims of Slenderman become a stopgap measure.

Secondary infection occurs via psychic sensitivity. Some people are simply more aware of spiritual/supernatural activity in general. This causes them to stumble across a "proxy" or the Slenderman himself. Their awareness of the entity draws its attention. It proceeds to haunt them, causing them to act out in various ways which causes the spread of the infection as with the primary source of infection, the blogs and vlogs. This has been called a compulsion by others. Having always been interested in writing and words, I can't say if this is true or not. Prior to the creation of the internet and blogs and vlogs, general public opinion would have been to label such people insane, paranoid schizophrenics.

The rarest form of infection was previously the primary source. Prior to the advent of the internet, this was a "patient 0" type scenario caused either by the individual's sensitivity to psychic phenomena or some unknown personal quality which attracted the attention of the creature. (This is the nature of my own exposure to the creature over 20 years ago.) There are certain types which seem more prone to infection than others however. These are people who have psychic or creative ability, who are highly intelligent or inquisitive. Which is not to say that others are not also affected, but that these specific types possibly are more inclined to enter environments or have contact with items which have a higher possibility of carrying infection. Or again, some quality of their minds, as opposed to the minds of others, attracts the creature's attention, causing it to investigate and infect.

And here we are and there we go

First order of business, we're alive. We're safe-ish. We're recovering. But we have missing and... I'm not okay with what happened.

I cannot begin to describe how thoroughly pissed off I am about... everything- How easily we were trounced, how that overpowered bastard tore apart our house and hurt my family, how MASC has been twisting our arms to make us accept their "patronage." I do not appreciate threats, veiled or not. Money is another matter, and I hope that doesn't make me a gold-digger for letting that influence my decisions.

I REALLY don't appreciate the fact that, from what they knew about us before they started asking their questions, they had to have been watching us for WEEKS. They could have intervened at any time but chose to only begin firing at the last minute. I mean, granted things happened pretty darn quick, but you'd think someone beating the crap out of people and tearing apart a large structure with his freaking MIND would be a target they'd want to take down ASAP.

Bleh... I am so not happy, and it has nothing to do with being beat to crap and back. At least MASC is letting us go home today, to "look at the place;" they insist it isn't livable, and it isn't safe. They seem to think we should stay with them and be happy for the protection. I might have taken them up on it if any of my friends were interested; they're not. They can't legally hold us, no matter their threats. It's the threats that make me not trust them even more than their hesitation in saving our frikkin lives. And since I'm in their custody and using one of their computers, I'm sure they'd read this even if they aren't already monitoring our blogs.

I don't want to say thankfully only two people died in the attack because that is two people too many, even if one of them was an enemy. But we also have missing... Tim and Drake... are lost; Lullaby... we know who has her, though we don't know where. I'd almost prefer she was missing still and not in his hands. MASC says they're looking but after they were apparently attacked a second time while picking over the mansion, I don't know how much effort they're putting into it. I don't know who attacked them either. They weren't very clear. All I know is that it wasn't Thuggee, though his latest blog post is puzzling then, since he insisted in his gratuitous, self-aggrandizing, masturbatory murder-fest that he disintegrated the bullets fired by MASC.  

But we're going home. I don't care what the mansion looks like. If Drake or Tim or Lulls come back, that's where they know to go. Ecko showed up at the mansion the next day, so I know the others might still come back there too. And as bad as our injuries are, the little spirits of the place will help us heal. I know it. We'll heal faster there. Come hell or high water we are going home.

And are we really in more danger there than anywhere else? I don't think so. MASC twisted my arm... not with their threats but with the offer of money. I haven't seen the mansion yet, but I know it's in bad shape from the attack. And in accepting their money, I had to accept their presence in the mansion. They're making us house a half dozen men (argued DOWN, I assure you), but in exchange they'll rebuild the place and put in cameras with CCTV and "patrol the perimeter." (I can't say that last part without feeling like I'm in a war movie... I hate war movies...) And money for food since that reject from a dead assassin's cult tore up the garden and woods too from what MASC has told me. The cover story is apparently a localized tornado since lots of people in town saw the trees getting thrown about even if they weren't close enough to see some masked buffoon doing his best Dragonball Z villain impression. And our MASC liaison is to be one Trevor Brood, who's been silently following my blog and a few others for a while now, sneaky bastard.

I'll post more on my personal blog. Just wanted to update you guys on what's going on with these MASC people.

A Warning

This is a mark against the resistance. You will be found, none are safe. The Defenders Against Slenders have been made into an example. This is the end of everything you have tried to build. Good bye, pets. Until we meet.

Laws of Magic IV: Law of Relative Truth

IV Law of Relative Truth
Every statement is true, false, and/or meaningless. This is a function of one’s vantage point (Worldview). It is possible for a concept or act to violate the truth of a personal universe and still be “true,” provided that it “works” in a specific situation. (This law is closely allied to Law VI: the Law of Paradox and Law I: The Law of Worldviews.) Essentially, The Law of Relative Truths allows personal worldviews to overlap and also to interact with the nominal universe which underlies all other existences, bridging the gap between Laws I and VI.

According to Law I, there are two kinds of Truth in the cosmos: one Absolute and the other Relative. The Absolute Truth is the unchanging and eternal Tao which underlies the world(s) we know. Relative truth, or what we consider reality, is faceted by the perceptions and desires of individual wills. It is ever changing because it is illusory. In our world of competing realities, it is a constant war of wills. If your will is strong enough, you can rewrite another being’s reality, but the price can be high. Every Worldview is real to those who have conscious awareness of it or give it credence, shaping it by their belief or disbelief. This is a very important Law as it pertains to sanity. If you cannot accept the idea of other realities, it is very possible that your mind could break when confronted by a truly alien Worldview, especially if that Worldview has the backing of multiple minds. If you have no option but to function within this worldview, it is best to go with the flow, but you must maintain your own Worldview at the same time as the Absolute to which you will eventually return. Most people do not have the strength of mind to segment their awareness in this fashion (explaining both the growing number of people who are diagnosed with mental disorders and the ease with which Slenderman seems to rewrite the minds of His victims).

Consider that water is wet only to creatures which do not live in water. We do not think of our habitat as “dry” any more than a fish thinks of its home as “wet.” The terms are meaningless to beings who have no reason to know them. In order to function within the parameters of another creature’s Worldview and cause changes there, you must be willing and able to suspend your own Worldview and accept the vantage point of that other being as true. This is tantamount to the adage that you must walk a mile in someone’s shoes before you can understand their choices; you must walk that "mile" before it is possible to make changes which the other person will accept as true and acceptable within the parameters of their own Worldview. It is impossible to change another being’s Worldview without first adopting their viewpoint and using it as a common stepping off point. The greatest danger here is that in adopting another's viewpoint, you can easily lose your own, permanently trapping you within the Worldview of the other (at best, making you schizophrenic).

To dismiss another person’s Worldview as false is to assume that only yours is true. You can still change some aspects of the other being’s Worldview, but this will depend largely on your will. In most cases, this will pertain only to the minor elements of the other being‘s viewpoint. This is a very difficult Law to put into practice and a very dangerous one to get wrong.

The Law of Relative Truth has far reaching ramifications however.

It explains the power of suggestion. For instance: someone tells you that you have been cursed. If you believe it, then your belief lends truth (and power) to the existence of the curse. Positive reinforcement, in other words. If you believe there is no curse, you have the power to negate its effects. If your will is strong (stronger than the person who has placed a curse on you), you can dismiss the curse completely as untrue.

It affects divination and visions of the future in what is referred to as self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are made aware of a possible future, that future is more likely to come to pass because you know of its possibility. This is especially true if you adopt a defeatist attitude of waiting for it to come to pass. Consider the “curse” a prediction of ill fortune. If you accept its existence, you have already lent energy to the creation of a future where its existence is validated.

It also pertains to the power of names. The power inherent in names is something the ancients were more aware of than we are today. Essentially a name has the power to call a thing and control it. The more names, or information, you have connected to a specific thing, the more control over it you have. Names, descriptions, even origins and dates, give you a better understanding of a thing and therefore more power over it. It can even allow you to create a thing.

Despite the fact that modern humans no longer take into account the power of names (forgoing the tradition of secret names, adult names, and the intentional destruction of names in order to harm the spirit of the dead), there has been some modern experimentation into this aspect of the Law of Relative Truth. Talking about a ghost or spirit gives power to that spirit to interact within the parameters of your Worldview. If someone is told that a house is haunted, even if they say they do not believe in ghosts, any doubt they may silently harbor gives a real (or imagined) spirit a window into the world of the observer.

This spirit may even be created by the belief of the observer (or it may be a spirit which uses the parameters of the belief to clothe itself in the trappings of our reality). (This is the Core Theory mentioned by many who know of Slenderman.) Even if someone does not know a house to be haunted, the fact that someone believes the house to be haunted allows anything there to make itself known. This logically extends to the creation of Thought-forms (also called Tulpas, servitors, egregores, golems, etc). Essentially, you can create a spiritual entity with the power of your belief, and this effect snowballs based on the number of observers who believe.

In the 1970s, The Toronto Society Of Psychical Research experimented with the concept of thought-forms, creating a spirit named Philip. They were extremely successful, though the groups were never able to explain the results of their experiment scientifically. (Unfortunately magical laws are inadmissible in scientific arguments!) Though this experiment was performed simply to ascertain “scientifically” whether it could be done, in magic, thought-forms or Tulpas can be given various tasks beyond simple séance-type interaction. Thought-forms can be asked to ward a place, person, or thing, to attack others psychically, gather information… essentially a thought-form can do nearly any task you set for it within the parameters you initially envisioned. It is very much like a computer program, or if ignored, like a virus or even a vampire. The danger lies in not assigning such a creature any function. Ignoring it will not make it go away or dissipate. Awareness of a thing lends power to its existence, however small a contribution that power may be. It will draw energy from you by making you notice it or through more direct means.

Laws of Magic III: Law of Synchronicity

Sorry I haven't updated the Laws in a while. Distractions and several unfortunate events later, here is the third Law in the series.

III Law of Synchronicity:
Synchronicity is a term invented by Jung to describe meaningful coincidences that cannot be attributed to cause and effect. Synchronous events are connected by pattern (meaning) rather than time. (This will be expanded upon in Law VIII: the Law of Association.) Some interpret this as an ongoing and developing dialogue between the perceiver and the consciousness of the universe. Two or more events happening at the same time (the presence of the observer and the event itself) are likely to have more in common than the merely temporal. This dialogue is overt to the degree the perceiver is receptive to it, that is, how aware they are of the event being significant.
Law of Unity Everything which exists, will exist, or has existed is linked, directly or indirectly, to everything else. All phenomena is connected to every other one, past, present, or future. Any perceived separation between phenomena is based on fragmentary perception or an incomplete understanding of the phenomena.

According to the Law of Synchronicity and its sub-law, no event is exclusive; no event is separate from every other event. All events create and are caused by the ripples of other events. There are always causes which led up to the event you observe, some of them obvious, most of them not so much. Events are connected through a pattern (Tao), whether we can see the whole picture or not. The Law incorporates the idea of cause and effect, but also takes into account outer and inner causes. Events may be interpreted as external or internal phenomena. It depends upon your point of view. Synchronicity (syn=with and chronos=time) was described by Jung as the concurrent appearance of connections between elements, of meaningfully related events, without a unique direct cause. Science does not quite understand these phenomena and the rational mind denies them.

Only when we are in harmony with our (external/unconscious) selves will synchronic events acquire significance. In moments of synchronicity, everything is fluid; favorable people, actions, and objects may appear at exactly the right time and place. Examples: chance meetings which prove advantageous, clairvoyant dreams, accidental telepathy/synchronous thoughts that culminate in action. These are simple synchronic events. Then there are cascade events, a succession of coincidences which may be difficult to follow or explain. Many would consider these extraordinary chances of fate, mere coincidences or miracles, when actually they illustrate the profound resonance between personal reality and the mysterious forces of the nominal universe. It is only our ego that prevents us from being in a state of synchronicity all the time.

The Law of Synchronicity might as well be called the Chaos theory of magical thought. Chaos theory describes complex motion and the dynamics of sensitive systems. Though chaotic systems may be mathematically determined, they are nearly impossible to predict. Behavior in chaotic systems is aperiodic; that is, events occur seemingly at random. No event or series of events is repeated, yet a chaotic system can evolve in a way that appears to be smooth and ordered. “Chaos” refers to whether or not it is possible to make accurate long-term predictions of any system if the initial conditions are known to an infinite degree. Since this is impossible, no prediction can be made which is one hundred percent accurate. Despite this, Chaos theory is about attempting to find the order within chaos in order to make a logical prediction. Just as Synchronicity implies that there is a pattern to observed events which provide clues to the future.

Coincidence is merely an illusion created by the subconscious syncing with the nominal universe. If we properly understood the world(s) we live in, coincidence would cease to exist, replaced by synchronicity. Events would fall into place according to our wishes and needs. Synchronicity is evident when significant unrelated coincidences occur. Suppose you are driving down the road, when suddenly a small animal jumps out and causes you to slow down. A few yards later at an intersection, another car ignores a stop sign and speeds across the road right in front of you. If you had not slowed for the animal, you would have been struck by the other driver. The Law of Synchronicity also applies to so-called wish-magic. Wishing something passionately, we create what we desire (often unconsciously). Albert Einstein insisted intuition, not brilliance, was the key to his scientific discoveries. Nikolai Tesla had visions of his inventions, examining them in mental detail before attempting to create them.

Psychic techniques are also based on synchronicity. Divination is a form of synchronicity, relying on symbolism to formulate an idea of future events. Synchronicity connects the material world to the psychic world by symbols. These symbols are not always understood, though they appear from the collective subconscious. The law of synchronicity and the law of cause and effect compliment each other. Understanding these fundamental laws leads to spiritual leaps in evolution. A person who is spiritually elevated will benefit by additional degrees of freedom in how s/he interfaces with reality. The law of synchronicity offers power based on creativity and knowledge. Anything is possible with understanding and the acceptance of the flow of reality which surrounds us at all times. When we wade into that flow, we may divert it according to our will or allow it to carry us in whatever direction it is going.

Be Wary of These

I stumbled upon this site today, a very useful collection of the usual suspects. Hopefully the author will continue updating the list as more of our enemies reveal themselves.

The author, Dia, says: These are a collection of people I've met, or stumbled upon rather, that you should be wary of. They are proxies, revenants, puppets, corpses walking, enough kinds to make your head spin. Then there are simply the ones that know too much. Anyone I list here, watch them closely if you run across them. Or, if you are wise, you will run the other way.

Anonymous here..

My computer broke and Ecko and I had been working on fixing it, so now that we're back I'll start posting things on here again, sorry about the long absence.

I've been having really bad nightmares recently and haven't been able to get them to go away, so I was just wondering if anyone can think of something I could try to make them stop. I've tried doing wards around my bed to ward off bad dreams, and I've tried herbal teas that are supposed to give you a restful nights sleep and keep you from having bad dreams, but nothing seems to work. So if you have any ideas, shoot them my way.

In the mean time all I have to say is that I know that everyone's been going through exceptionally hard times recently, but that we can't give up, for the sake of those who may be effected by this in the future and for those of us who have fallen before us, we can't give in and make it all for not.

FYI, Broken Does Not Mean Beaten

Gods! Couldn't even let them have a month or even a week of happiness together...

If you don't know about the biggest wedding our little community has ever seen, you probably won't care too much about the death of one of the grooms. I swear that if I ever get the chance, I will beat Prosper into unconsciousness with my bare hands and drag him to wherever Elaine or Jacob happen to be so they can decide his fate... if Shady doesn't rip out his guts and use them to garrote the bastard first. No wonder we haven't seen him in a few days.

It may be a bit of good news that Konaa has retrieved Zero's sword, or not. I'm undecided considering the events which led up to it and what happened after. For many, it is still a symbol of hope despite Zero's madness. I hope it can be reforged and used for the good of us all. But beyond that, I hope that Konaa will be okay. Lives are more important than symbols, and a life well lived is more inspiring than a broken sword.

It's also worth noting, though I have never met the man, that Rhodes is apparently not trustworthy. Don't make any deals with him unless you have a small army to watch your back.

Black Water

To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement. Black Water has decided not to pursue any more sites on our behalf. I told them, at the outset, that the Alps were not a good target, that there were better ones elsewhere, but the Alps were close and accessible and not a potential war-zone or underwater. Better to pursue an easy target if it might yield success than pursue a hard target that's a better target, but which might fail. That was their reasoning so far as I can tell anyway.

I got a call from some anonymous worker bee at Black Water and a very tersely worded apology regarding any future targets. Then I read what actually happened after my Canadian friends visited the Alps. Basically Executor happened, and I'm really pissed about it. I fully believe that if Executor had kept his long nose out of my research, Black Water might have continued to look into some of the other sites I suggested. At least it would have helped me cross some off my list, whether they continued to pursue the cheap and local options or not. It's a darn sight better than I can do considering my limited funds and mobility.

So... now what do I do? Any Indiana Jones types interested in traveling on their own dime to parts exotic to see if they can find ancient relics to help in our fight? All I can promise is danger both mundane and supernatural and possible disappointment as well.

Better than sitting on your hands and doing nothing though, right?

News and more News

Just to let folk know, I've updated the news page with more possible Slendy related deaths and disappearances from yesteryear. I do so periodically as I have time to search through archives and such, but unlike most of the DAS postings, I don't post them to the main page. Just not worth doing for one or a handful of links. Now obviously I can't be everywhere and read everything. So if you guys have news, whether official or from the blogosphere, feel free to post a link and I will add it to our News page.

In other news, we've had a death in the family... and a few additions. Trina's brother, Ron, is dead. What happened is still somewhat confused, but he was apparently the traitor our mysterious benefactor warned us of. Shady was there and will post on what happened as soon as she can, but she's kind of reeling from another death as well. That Prosper guy is really starting to tick me off. I'll link here to Shady's post as soon as she makes it.

Somehow though, Trina came walking back out of the woods with someone she'd thought she'd killed a long time ago. He even has a blog and has apparently been watching us for a while. One less person in the woods stalking us, I guess. Both he and Trina are shell-shocked, which is absolutely understandable.

Finally, Mr Crowley and his friend, Sage Lehu, showed up at our door bright and early this morning. When I say, showed up, I mean, literally they walked right up, Crowley looking the place up and down in a very critical way. Yes, I know it's not much to look at, but it's not going to fall on us either, and it's decrepit state deflects most people from giving it a second glance, if they even get that close with my wards. I feel badly though about inviting Crowley, with two dead bodies in the garden awaiting interment and this Prosper ass stalking Shady like her own personal Grim Reaper.

Strength in numbers

Or, the benefits of having a group.

Alright, alright; I've been gone for a while, and out of the Running game since I was just a kid. But I've got a few tricks of my own up my sleeve.

Let's start with the cons.

  • Harder to travel at speed
  • Harder to keep up with supplies
  • Harder to avoid being followed/found
  • Harder to find a destination
  • Possible to get into fights and hurt each other - beating yourselves down from the inside
The basic things you'd think of. If you have an injured groupie, the whole team will be slowed down (not that being injured on your own would be any faster). Some tough decisions might have to be made regarding basic survival. But in my opinion, even having a single partner is better than none - especially if they've got their own brand of survival. Having friends with you is even more helpful, since you'll get along well and be able to work together.

  • Easier to sleep at night, as you can take turns on watches
  • Harder to go insane - you've got friends to calm you down
  • Easier to defend yourselves - three baseball bats and two tasers is better than one switchblade
  • Less vulnerable - even the least intelligent Indoctrinated will think twice before attacking a group of five, alone
  • More things can get done - true, splitting up ruins the point, but, for example, in a city, some of the group can make camp while others go out and get supplies
For - for...for I don't even know what anymore, this was Nathaniel Crowley.

I am hardly the person to ask about this. It's well known that I "hate cryptic BS" with a passion. Which is why I cheat whenever I can. To that end, I can at least share a few websites with you all that I use when presented with some proxy's cryptic BS. Sometimes you'll get lucky, and the "secret code" will be fairly straight forward. Lucky you, if the randomly capitalized letters actually mean a damn thing.

Here are some very good sites to help you with breaking those long strings of seemingly random numbers or letters:

As I said, I am not someone who enjoys playing with code at all. However, readers and fellow authors both, if you have anything to add to this article, your input is welcome. I'm sure others will appreciate anything you can add to make the task of translating cryptic BS easier.

Mobile Wards

There is a bit of a problem with stationary wards as opposed to mobile ones. This is mainly due to the fact that stationary wards can afford to be all purpose in a sense, simply repelling any intruder who might wish the occupants harm. While a mobile ward could encounter anything in the course of its owner's travels.

This is why in my former post, I tied the personal ward to the stationary one, in a sense defining the owner of the personal ward as belonging to the place where the stationary ward was based. This gives the mobile ward a broader foundation and makes it able to cope with more trouble than any normal all-purpose ward, provided of course, the stationary wards remain unbroken. Without the stationary wards to back it up or a strong will to keep it empowered, a personal ward is weaker.

Ideally I would say pick a spot that you consider safe, whether it's a random tree in the middle of the woods or a courthouse or your childhood home or whatever to you can justify as being incontrovertibly safe (and not likely to lose its safety) in your mind. The more you are tied to the place from personal experience, the better -so long as the symbolism is strong in your mind. Symbolism is the "circuitry" through which your intent flows. Don't tell anyone what or where this place is, just to be sure no one messes with it, and take some small bits from that site (tree bark, splinters, soil, paint chips, etc). Avoid returning to this place, else your enemies might make the connection if they know you are using this kind of ward. Use these in the manufacture of your charm as a kind of power source, ie a link to something larger than yourself and your own will.

In the wards I described before, I used vials for the personal amulets because they were most like the witches bottles. For something like this, you can use whatever "vessel" is convenient. So long as it can hold the "ingredients," it's good. So a vial, a lump of clay, a pouch, a tin, etc -so long as it's something you can carry on your person and not lose or forget. Something you can wear is ideal as you're less likely to lose it.

For a well-rounded protective stone as the focus of the charm, I prefer Sunstone. It has many benefits - bringing "blessings" to the user (calling to you good fortune to preempt any negative events), changing the negative for the positive (ensuring a positive outcome despite negative events), removing unhealthy psychological or spiritual attachments (ie preventing possession), dissipating fearfulness and stress (thus allowing you to keep such wasted energies for other things). However, different people have different personal energy. If you handle the stone and find you don't like it, you may have to do some research on your own.

Green, purple, white, and gold are the colors most associated with luck and protection. You may use these in construction of your charm, either paint or fabric or even stones (the sunstone would qualify as gold, or if you happen to be a metalsmith, using gold to make the entire talisman).  It's not necessary that you use all of these colors, and it's very much a matter of personal preference. I mean if you make a charm that's so ghastly you can't bear to look at it, it won't do you much good. I also like to choose a shiny new penny for the luck symbolism and the copper content, copper being a very lucky metal.

There are many, many herbs which have protective energies and which you can use in the construction of such a talisman.  To list them all would really be too much, but a quick google will give you dozens of sites from which to choose. Books are better simply because you won't always have internet access, they come with an index, and are more detailed than most internet entries. (Cunningham's and Beyerl's are probably the best in terms of availability, size, and content.) A good rule of thumb is to choose no more than seven plants (typically less and odd numbers at that) for any spell. Just remember, KISS- Keep It Simple Stupid (a favorite saying of a former teacher of mine). The spell is complicated enough without throwing more and more into it. Choose your ingredients based on what is available (kitchen spices for the win!), what is cheap (many useful "weeds" can be found in your backyard or nearby), and what has the broadest coverage in terms of the purpose of the spell. For instance, something that covers accidents is better than something that covers only fire; something that is protective and also adds power to other herbs is better than something which only protects against accidents, etc.

Finally, symbols. There are so many symbols that I have at least a dozen books on the subject. Again, stick to the basics. You don't need a ton of esoteric symbols to get the job done, unless to your mind that gives them added power. The Pentagram is one of the most protective symbols around, symbolic of the human body, the five elements, or the five senses, and therefore covering all the bases. The + is a simple sign which can be used to signify a crossroads or all directions, meaning help from all corners or protection from danger no matter its origin. The circle is about as simple as it gets in terms of protective signs, a wall to protect what is inside from everything that is outside.


And since I mentioned it in my previous post.... several years ago, I made everyone in my family protective amulets for their cars. It was not an amulet to prevent accidents, but rather to prevent injury. I had to focus on one or the other and opted for the more important goal of keeping the occupants of the car safe. So far as I know, my mother is the only one who took it seriously, but it worked in spectacular fashion.

She'd been hearing weird wheel noises for a while, but one day she was driving past a restaurant and turning a corner, her wheel popped off the car. The car more or less came to an immediate stop thanks to gravity. The wheel flew from the car, hit the large window of the restaurant, rebound back to the car, bounced off the car, and came to rest a few feet from the car. There were no injuries to anyone on the road, in the restaurant, or in the car.

Another time, she was on the road and the driver of a massive dump truck on the other side had a heart attack with his foot on the gas pedal. He plowed right past her and into the trees mere feet in front of her car. If it had struck her, she would have died instantly.

The charm itself:
3 pieces felt -purple, white, and green
red, black, white, purple, and blue embroidery floss
1 white ribbon
1 piece of yellow Jasper
1 new penny
equal parts Rosemary, comfrey, and moss
Myrrh oil

 Cut the white felt into a six point star large enough to cover the penny. Cut the purple and green felt into large circles about the width of your palm. Sew the white star onto purple side with the penny underneath. 
On the green felt, use the floss to sew the symbol of Saturn in black, Mars in red, Jupiter in blue, Mercury in purple, and the plus sign in white. These should be arranged more or less in the form of a pentagon with Saturn at the top point. Sew the two pieces of felt together inside out with a bit at the top open and then flip it right side out.  

Using the ribbon, fasten the jasper to the outside of the charm, using the points as reference to make a pentagram. Trust me; it's just easier to do it this way. Then stuff it with the herbs and sew it shut our use the ribbon to make a drawstring to hang it from your rearview mirror. Anoint the stone with a few drops of myrrh oil and allow sun to shine on the stone as much as possible.

News to keep you in the loop

Hello there...

I hope the posts up to this point have at least been helpful to those looking for answers. You might have noticed that (up until recently) we had no centralized base of operations, the better to keep our individual authors safe. I thought we'd be more secure that way, not keeping all our eggs in one basket as the saying goes. Unfortunately, with the attack on Shady last month, I had to revise that assessment. Maybe we should be more aggressive, maybe we should have been from the start. Since heading into Jersey, we've begun taking in anyone needs it, and we'll continue to do so. Runners, ex-proxies, fighters, in short- anyone who needs a safe haven. Our place is as safe as I can make it, and I add new protections every day. I've offered that info here for anyone willing to try it, though I know magic is not everyone's cup of tea.

I can't make promises for the future, but for the present, our place is safe. We have long term plans which we would like to implement, given the funds and hands to get the job done. We've already had some contact with Blackwater to the extent that they've opted to send men to one of the sites I suggested. I hope it bears fruit, but it's not at the top of my list of potentials. Potential whats... I'll not say in public, not yet.

You should know that I'll do whatever I can for anyone who asks. Whether you need help or want to know how you can help, post here and I will answer. You see those links at the top of the page? Go there and post if you have info to share. News, discoveries, tactics, your location if you need help... I think it's time we stop sitting alone in the dark, worrying about who or what is on the other side of the door, and start helping one another like human beings should.

Improvisational Self-defense

Just about anything can be used for self-defense. If it's within arm's reach, pick it up and use it if only so you can run away! If nothing is within arm's reach and you have no combat training, go for the soft bits and nerve centers.

Examples of improvised weapons:

Clothing A coat can be used in a variety of ways, including throwing it in an attackers face to buy yourself some time to escape or to distract from an attack. The sleeve can be used for choking techniques. Use it to ward off attacks. This was the common application of cloaks in the 16th century. A scarf can also be used for choking. Put something hard and heavy in a sock and swing. A belt can be used as an improvised whip and the buckle can be debilitating.
A Drink Throw it in your attackers face. Aim for the eyes (especially if you are drinking something acidic or carbainated). Your attackers will instinctively try to protect their eyes and you can use this to launch a secondary attack. If you have time on your side, you could fill a squirt gun with a variety of liquids (vinegar, salt water, hot sauce, etc) and aim for the eyes.
Anti Theft Device in your car Use as you would any blunt object.
Car Keys Thrust or rake at soft tissue targets or pressure points.
Flashlight Use as an impact weapon or to blind if it is dark.
Aerosol cans (Air Freshener/De-Icer/WD40 spray/Hairspray/Cleaning supplies) Can be sprayed into an attackers face or be used as an impact weapon. Added bonus, some of these sprays are flammable.
Tools Can be used as a club.
Coins Throw them as hard as you can into your attackers face.
Pen or comb Can be used to thrust at soft tissue targets.
Umbrella Can be used for thrusting attacks.

Protective Grid and Personal Wards

The concept of the Witches Bottle is quite old. It is essentially a bottle buried at the furthest corners of one's property and filled with unpleasant and downright harmful items used to ward off hostility. In a pinch (if you lived in an apartment for instance), the bottle(s) could be hidden in a cupboard, under floor boards, in a potted plant, etc. Use your imagination. Generally only one bottle is necessary, this to be placed in a central location such as a hearth. However, since the hearth (fireplace) is no longer central to the design of most buildings, this location could be replaced by the kitchen or somewhere near or under the door through which most people enter your home. If you are not sure from which direction danger might appear, consider a grid of bottles, one for each cardinal point or corner of your property and one in a central location to tie it all together. The central bottle should contain a magnet to make it more like the center of a compass .

What you put into the bottle is dependent upon your imagination and what you have on hand. Some of the contents should come directly from the person or people to be protected. This is by far the most repellent aspect of the spell, as it should be. You want to fill your bottle with things you would not want to encounter in an everyday setting. So if your companions are agreeable to it (and you have a strong stomach), you'll want their feces and/or urine and even (menstrual) blood. Less disagreeable to collect would be a bit of saliva, hair, fingernail clippings, or a small bit of fabric. This is all to focus the spell on the people living in your home and protect them from all comers.

The more dire your situation, the more aggressive the contents of your bottle should be. You'll want to find anything which might cause an injury to anyone who means you and yours harm. Anything sharp... rusty old screws and nails (careful of tetanus), razors, egg shells, broken glass, mirrors, plates, cactus needles, pins, stones, ashes, wood, bone, etc. The only limitations on what you might put in the bottle comes from your own imagination.

Finally, the symbolic aspects of the bottle. Red string is a common ingredient, it being protective in many cultures. Knotted thread is also common. I could write an entire post on knot magic alone, but in this case, the knots are meant to bind whoever comes your way from doing any further harm. Herbs are common, particularly rosemary which was used to make your enemy forget their grudge. Sand to weigh your enemy down, wine or vinegar to drown him, salt which was both defensive and offensive (salt in your enemy's wounds or eyes), etc, etc. Anything you can symbolically justify placing in the bottle is good.

NEVER OPEN THE BOTTLE OR DISTURB IT ONCE IT IS SEALED AND HIDDEN. The bottle(s) should remain sealed in perpetuity. You may go the extra length of adding protective symbols to the exterior of the bottle (I like the Ottastafur for this), sealing it with wax, and/or wrapping it in cloth and binding it with twine.

Personal wards
This is my own twist on the idea of the witches bottle. Protecting your friends and family on your own property is one thing, but you can't expect them to stay put indefinitely. That would be a prison of your own making. To extend the protection of the witches bottle(s) beyond your property, smaller personal (mobile) wards may be created for each person involved, and these should be made at the same time as the main wards if at all possible. If you think you might need to make more later for additional people, save the scraps of your initial work... left over needles, nails, wax, string, etc and use that to create a sympathetic bond with the bottles.

In addition to anything which would bind the bottles sympathetically to the larger grid, it's important to include something of the property itself. So, wood, stone, plaster, dirt, or anything which serves as part of your shelter or property. A loadstone (magnet) in each ward is also helpful, and this should be a magnet that was kept with the one in the central bottle for maximum efficiency, making the ward into a kind of compass attuned to the house itself. To enhance this symbolism further, you might paint a compass onto the bottle or use the Vegvisir, an Icelandic compass rune. This will serve the function of drawing on the house's protections for anyone in possession of the ward as well as allowing someone not initially included in the bottles to pass through the outer wards without becoming confused. The compass rune and the magnet itself will always help the holder to come back home.

I'm sure some of you have heard of this guy. He is currently trying to bring me down, along with the team. At first he was helpful. Now he is malicious. If you have any information at all about this charecter, be glad to tell me.

I'll tell you what I know.
He is 14.
He lives 30 minutes from a warehouse.
He is sensitive when you try to call him a lier.
He is stealing my name... bastard...
He pisses people off generally.

Ramson sounds satanic, any background on this?
And That's the best I can tell you.

I feel like I'm off the track of the ark.

Invisible Blog and Vlog posts

I've given some thought as to how this is even possible (after a discussion with Rev). How can a proxy post to someone's Youtube channel or blog, or even contribute to a legitimate blog post without the owner of said mediums being aware? And conversely (and directly applicable to Rev's Vindicate problem), how could you post information online for most people and make it inaccessible for a select few?

I'll be the first to admit that computers? electronics? Not my thing. Technology is no friend of mine. Go look to my personal blog to see the swath I've cut through the ranks of electrical devices. If not for my internet addiction, I would probably be a Luddite.

So how can someone post to your account(s) without your permission?

  • Well, the most obvious answer as to why there are things on your account that you didn't put there is that they hacked it. It's the answer most people leap to when they can see the posts and comments in question. I'd even be willing to bet it's sometimes true.
  • Unfortunately, the internet is not the only thing that can be hacked. While it is true that proxies may physically haunt a person and physically hack into their accounts, the bigger danger is when they get into your head and use your own body to skulk about. Once you are "possessed" in such a way, I don't imagine it would be difficult at all for your secret-creeper to keep you from seeing things from the inside out, especially if you don't even know the information exists.
  • The third possibility is that some kind of glamour has been placed on the blog/vlog to stop you from seeing the posts. The third seems unlikely simply because it would require a lot of work and fine tuning to make it apply only to one person. The internet not being a physical place, it would be very difficult (though not impossible) to do this... It's not something I'd like to try, but I do have theories on how it could be done.

A glamour would be difficult for a number of reasons. I don't know enough about computers to pull it off, but someone who's well versed in them AND in magic might be able to do it. That is part of the problem right there. While there are some people who like to refer to themselves as Techno-magi, I doubt the field is quite so advanced as this concept would require. Again, not an expert in this area, however Most of Slendy's followers just don't seem that bright.

Theoretically you would need the IP address of the devices(s) you wanted to affect in this manner, and possibly personal information and property from the human target as well. Though in this instance, information would be the better acquisition, considering this is a manipulation of information on the "information super highway."

While it is conceivable that all this information could be reduced to a sigil, a better solution would be to come up with a symbol to lock the specified target out, and then collect every single little thing that you wanted to keep from them as it was posted. I'm sure you can see how this could eventually become cumbersome. Again, not saying it couldn't be done, but it would be time consuming and tedious. The alternative, that you might modify the sigil each time some new thing was added would be even worse.

(This is for you Rev.) The simplest method for setting such a spell in motion would be to set up a website, put the lock sigil on the front page and make it the only thing accessible to casual observation. Upload everything you want to keep from the target and keep it inaccessible behind the lock sigil. Then just keep adding to the files as need be while posting them publicly to your hearts content. So long as the site hosting this spell never went down, the information would always be safe from the specified parties.

Laws of Magic: II Law of Attention

II Law of Attention:
All Worldviews exist as potential, gaining momentum the more energy and belief we put into them. The more one seeks to support a given law, conclusion, or Worldview, the more evidence one will find. We create our world, moment by moment (as illustrated by the first Law) by means of the recursive internal dialogue of words and symbols with which we constantly edit our perceptions. By focusing our attention to a specific purpose, we rearrange our worldview. In other words, belief is paramount to the function of magic, while doubt in oneself or one’s goal sabotage’s the goal before it can be achieved.

In physics, this is akin to the Observer Effect (some will no doubt get a chuckle from the name of this phenomena), whereby the results of an experiment changes with the observer (Ex. Schrödinger’s Cat). You can use this law to reinforce your Worldview. By seeking to validate your Worldview, you create the evidence you seek, which is both a function and a danger of this Law. Your subconscious provides the symbolism and signs to which your conscious mind responds. A kind of synchronicity occurs between your subconscious and conscious mind which results in coincidental observations. These observations make it seem that what you believe is true or increases your belief that something is true, thereby reinforcing your focus on your personal truth. If you don't see the danger here yet, then consider how our slender anti-friend hunts.

Though this is normally an unconscious function of the mind, it can be done consciously through the use of syllogisms (the conscious stringing together of symbols which lead your mind in a specific direction). Therein lies the power of the Law of Attention. So long as you can maintain focus on your personal truth, you can begin to bend reality to your will. The longer you are able to maintain this attention or the more energy you put into your desires, the more you are able to convince yourself, and the minds around you, of your personal truth. The more minds agree on a "truth," the longer the universe will allow it to last.

By simply desiring a Worldview to be true, your mind begins to discard any illusions between you and its validation (this is called "wish magic" by some). In other words, you see more evidence of its reality because you are no longer disregarding it. The evidence may have existed all along, but until you were ready to accept it, it remained hidden from you. On the other hand, you are also actively creating this evidence as you go as a means of reinforcing the Worldview you are consciously or unconsciously building.

In the long run, this Law is invaluable for strengthening your Worldview. By stringing along events and symbols in a logical fashion, you can prove a Worldview is possible. In doing so, changes to your current Worldview become easier. What I mean is, if you are attempting to alter your current Worldview to a new one (in other words- working a spell), then use of the second Law facilitates that change.

This law has a secondary function applicable to divination. It deals with interpretation of omens and portents which connect to our subconscious desires, and which many fail to note prior to the event they foretell. Those who have a talent for divination can learn to read the will of the Tao reality through the Law of Attention.

Affirmations are one of the easiest ways to put the Law of Worldviews into effect, but the Law of Attention deals more precisely with accessing the subconscious through symbolism. The simplest way to do this is by creating a sigil. A sigil can be produced by collecting any words which apply to the reality you wish to create. Some books will tell you to choose letters from an alphabet that the writer considers in some way magical, but any alphabet or system of symbols can be used. When you are just starting out, it is more important to be familiar with your tools (your own alphabet in this instance) as a boost to your confidence. Later you can choose an alphabet to which you may attach special significance.

To create a simple sigil, write a short sentence pertaining to your hoped for goal. Reduce each word to the first letter and throw out any letters which repeat. Combine the letters, eliminating shared lines, until you have a symbol which is a representation of all the letters. Draw this form on a clean sheet of paper, using whatever ink you feel appropriate. This will be your sigil once you empower it (by focusing your will on the symbol and investing it with the power of your belief in what it represents). Once you put it to use, watch for the changes you desire in your reality. Acknowledgment of those changes will further validate your worldview.

Ye know, when I was yer age, we dinnit have these here bloggamajiggers, fer sure. We had to write all our letters by hand, in the snow, while walking six miles to the nearest post office!

It's come to my attention you don't know anything about hard, cold facts. So let's start with fact number one: Electricity is a cruel mistress.

Ever since SAGE01A (to use Scribe Sigma's very neat designation system) did some tests with "The Substance," we've known that electricity hurts the |OC|. I won't say I knew about it before, because I didn't, not in my many years, but it explains some things in my past. The Substance, which I like to call ectoplasm, is highly conductive of electricity. Thanks to the high presence of said ectoplasm in the |OC|, the |OC| is highly conductive of electricity.

Example 1: Avalesca. In short, she lured the |OC| into the magnetic gates of a library, and then amped up the voltage. Pain ensued.

Example 2: Nightcrawler. One of the science team developed an electromagnet that emitted enough "radiation" to keep away the |OC| for a maximum of one month, after which it managed to find the blind spot, so to speak.

To continue with the PTC, they've developed an electrified melee weapon: the Hammer of Thor, or the banhammer. I haven't seen it in action but I've seen the charts of the kinds of power it emits and I can tell you, it would hurt the |OC| big time. If they could ever manage to get close enough.

More in-detail information can be found here.

Keep a taser with you. Not a close-quarters one. A projectile taser. If you need a second or two to run, shoot it and drop it. Since that ectoplasm is almost always found in the Indoctrinated, such a taser would work against them, too. Close-quarters would be easier to use with them than with the |OC| if you can't get your hands on a longer-range one.

Hope that helps.

For science, this was Nathaniel Crowley. Dagnabbit.



Found a house finally, snuck into it. Residents are asleep, computer is downstairs. On guest account, heh. Keeping this short. So tired... No. Hurry. Mystery is gone, perfect timing right? I'm concerned. On Twitter he posted a cut off code for danger. Trying to track or find any messages or get an idea of what this means.

Wildman is my first suspect. Mystery was concerned earlier and displayed it openly. I am so tired, the anger, the worry, it adds stress to this breaking body and mind. I don't suspect the Executor, nor his companion Proxy 269. It seems my previous captor is too busy running from Victor (Good! Fucking run!). You never know, but in regards to earlier when we were conversing common sense leans towards the brute that's been stalking him.

While I can give you no description on Mystery I can go ahead and give you what Mystery said in his own words about Wildman:

"Though the big one seems not to like the little one. It chases him around and around the park. I've taken to calling the big one Wildman (of Borneo). His one defining feature is the hair... long, lank, grizzly hair. He hasn't gotten within a yard of me, but I imagine he smells. Just a guess.

The little one, I don't know. I only noticed it a day ago. It dropped out of a tree practically on top of Wildman. Never saw one of Them run so fast. Both of them disappeared into the trees. The little one is very small, very thin. Could just be a kid, but that doesn't explain why Wildman fled the scene and seems to be avoiding it whenever I can even spot the little one."

If anyone recognizes someone fighting a person (or people) fitting that (these) description(s) you need to alert me immediately.

I can't stay long. Can't risk it. I'm debating on heading into Mystery's direction but that seems like suicide, in my condition I'd only burden any attempts at survival. I see the pocket knife next to me, finely sharpened not by me, but by the Executor during my stay. I feel like my small weapon was raped. This is bullshit but there is little we can do as of now. I'm going to settle in the basement of this house, took a peek around when I initially entered. There is a hidden spot behind some crap, cold floor but fuck it. House is pretty warm. Will sleep for a few hours. Find where I am in the morning. Hopefully have some word from Mystery by then.

Wildman, I swear... Everything I would have done to Bad Man Walking I will do to you ten fold, should you have hurt Mystery. Should anything happen. Your master will shiver when He sees what I have done to you. Unlike Mystery I am not a pacifist, I have no qualms in tearing down everything you know and everything you are. This is not an empty threat, it is a goddamn promise.
No one touches friends/allies/people I give a damn about. No one especially touches kin, and Mystery is as close to me as my own blood relatives are.

I can't find any signs aside from our Twitter conversation. I read the fire incident and everything before. Mystery's kin are safe, at least he believes so. But is he? That question pulls at me, it concerns me. I can't aimlessly go into his direction, though. None of us can. Please, Mystery, if you are alright let us know. I'm really hoping your computer just glitched out or something but... Fuck, the likeliness in that timing... We both know, don't we? You're a strong one. I refuse to assume the worse and I will slap anyone else who does.

I need to lay back, even if it is on a the hard floor in the basement. Need a few hours. Need to think.
I'll post updates on Twitter when I get on the road again. Going to keep looking for something, even if I have to check every page and every lead fifty times. Some clue as to where he went... Smarter than that. He'll have a plan even when attacked. I'm sure of it.

I don't know how many of these chances I will get, how much access I will have to a computer either. Might bounce from house to house if I can. Have to find a way to power up the cellphone too, it's running really low. Will rummage this house for something tomorrow. Here's to hoping it is empty.
Here's to hoping Mystery is alright.
Stay safe. Please.

Well... Shit.

My aviator hat is gone, and according to AG Slendy steals clothes.

Another proxy parody blog

Well i guess theres always room for one more on the parody bandwagon.
I have made a proxy parody blog that will probably be a fail but it still doesn't hurt to check it out :D

Sunday, May 22, 2011


This is a quick C& P from my personal blog, but I wanted to keep you guys updated on what is going on. You all may be aware that Executor has kidnapped Shady. He and his associate are torturing her for "information" and to make an example of her. Even as I write this, I have to pause as my fists clench... I am so angry; I am literally shaking with rage.

I do not handle feeling helpless well. So I refuse to be helpless. I won't sit around waiting. I've made a choice... I'm going to Shady's place tomorrow. I've managed to get off from work until Wednesday. So I'm going to go to Jersey. I can't track Shady from here, but I will go to her house and get something personal... a bit of hair, clothes... gods help me, blood. I'll make a charm to track her, and I will make Executor and Advocate suffer for all they've done.

If anyone saw ANYTHING strange in New Jersey, don't be afraid to mentioned it here. Any little thing that you may have noticed in the past few days... strangely masked emos... three people acting suspiciously. We're looking for at least two men. The numbered proxy in Executor's posts is not identified as male or female. So we can't guarantee we're looking for three males.

And Shady of course. She, at least, I can describe. She is pale and small, 5'1", with medium length hair, brown with violet underneath and a single streak of green on the left. Her eyes change from hazel to blue and purple, not that you would have noticed if you saw her at night. If anyone saw anyone manhandling anyone fitting Shady's description, please let me know. From what she told me before she was kidnapped, Executor is not much bigger than she is, but at that point she had only seen him in a dream. A master of dreams can appear any old way he or she wishes, so there's not guarantee he's actually that height in the flesh.

Executor, if you are reading this, I'll find you. I will. But I know you are far too vain to read my words unless they appear on your own blog, which is why I am not afraid to state my intent. I've threatened you. Not idle threats, I assure you. Perhaps you missed the post where I said I was a pacifist by choice. It is not in my nature to forgive those who trespass against me and mine. And if there's one thing that would make me go on the offensive, it's someone I care for being tortured by a sadist like you.

You had better pray to your sick, sad god that Shady ends up home and safe and that she talks me down from doing you permanent harm. Or the pain you have so far put Shady through will pale in comparison to the seven layers of Hell that will descend upon your head.

Laws of Magic: I Law of Worldviews

I Law of Worldviews
The world we perceive is not the true world. What we see is a mixture of the underlying reality (the Tao or objective, unknowable reality which supports everything we build upon it) and our perception (the subjective). Science supports the idea that by observing phenomena, we change it. While changing your worldview does not alter the eternal, real world, it does change the world you perceive. That is, by changing his worldview a magician is able to make real changes in the world which is real to humanity. (This will be explored further in Law VII: the Law of Reflections.)
Because there are an infinite number of ways to perceive the world, there are also an infinite number of worlds we may assemble without awareness. The true underlying reality is unknowable to us as long as we retain our worldview of separateness and self. Through meditation and other techniques, an explorer of this underlying reality can become one with it, but when joined to it, he can no longer step back and observe it, having become for that moment a part of it. As soon as he steps back, he begins to build observations about his experience, destroying the moment and obscuring the world which he has left. Thus there is no such thing as an independent observer. You participate in creating the world by perceiving it. This is then the objective all magic, bending reality to your will to create the phenomena or world you desire despite the will of others. The Will is the most powerful tool of a magician.
The Law of Personal Universes Every sentient being lives in and quite possibly creates a unique universe which can never be 100% identical to that lived in by another. So-called “reality” is a matter of consensus opinion.
The Law of Infinite Universes The total number of universes into which all possible combinations of existing phenomena could be organized is infinite. Anything is possible, though some things are more probable than others and so are easier to enact.

According to the Law of Worldviews and its sublaws, our reality is our own creation, attached tenuously to the underlying “real” world. Both worlds are real in so far as we are able to understand, both affect our well-being, but our personal reality is in constant flux, changing according to both the real world and our perception of it. Unlike the underlying reality however, only one’s own personal world may be altered willfully. The underlying reality remains unaltered. It is the foundation upon which we build our observations. A good example of this is the use of positive affirmations. When someone convinces themselves of the possibility of change, they bring that change into being.

True immersion in the “real” world would remove any desire for change. We cannot live in the “real” world (I believe it is as aspect of the Afterlife). It can be visited for short periods by minds that have attuned themselves to it, but staying too long might prevent the observer from returning or remove all desire to return (resulting in death). Since we cannot live in this “real” world, affirmations, meditations, and spellwork are valuable tools for reshaping the subjective world we must live in. Any attempt to alter the objective reality immediately removes the observer to the mutable universe of perception and creation. Only in the universes of our finite perception can change be put into effect. The world we each perceive is created by thought and desire and remains a mutable, warped copy of the underlying universe which exists as the bedrock of all our realities. (However, if your will is strong enough to affect the less material and therefore more spiritually mutable sister dimensions in direct contact with the world most of us see, it is possible to be incredibly kickass like the Amalgamation Sage.)

Because the number of possibilities in any individual universe are infinite, so too are the types of phenomena which can be caused through the application of will. However, since some phenomena are more probable than others, some will require less energy should they be attempted. For instance, it would be easier to create a pig than a flying pig, though creation of any matter from nothing would overtax our limited cognitive abilities.

Because each of us creates our own reality, it is difficult, though not impossible, for two or more people to agree upon the same phenomena. Police will tell you that witnesses to a crime rarely agree on the fine details of what they saw. Creation of phenomena is easier with one observer and becomes successively more difficult the more observers are included. Should a magician manage to obtain the cooperation of other observers however, either in suspending their expectations or in focusing their wills on a joint project (through agreed upon symbolism), the bending of reality to the Will becomes easier than with only one observer/magi. (More on this in Law IV.) This is also where the use of traditional tools and supplies comes into play. Stones, herbs, symbols, and other trappings of magic are powerful due to the combined will of generations of magicians using the same items in their own practice. It taps into the collective unconscious or what some call the Akashic Records.

The Law of Worldviews is a valuable tool towards understanding the underlying universe even as it affects the subjective universes of our perceptions. Application of this Law allows the creation or dispersal of energy in the form of phenomena. Belief is the all important factor. Believing something is possible allows it to be an option in your reality. Doubt destroys that possibility. Belief that something can hurt you, feeds the doubt that you can prevent that harm.

A person who believes in fairies, angels, spirits, etc, can communicate with them if they are present. Is this person delusional? Science would say yes, but such entities can cause changes to the physical universe that others can observe: temperature, weather, cumulative alterations in the subject. If multiple observers can be convinced to share a worldview, they will be able to function partially within that world, and the original observer within theirs. Shared perception creates a shared world through which the occupants may affect each other. The shared world will become more real based upon the number of believers in that world. Thus if three out of four people believe enough in the presence of a spirit, they may be able to empower that entity to appear or cause phenomena the fourth non-believer may experience despite his disbelief. It is not that we create a non-human entity (though it is possible to do so), but that we allow ourselves the option of perceiving it. Others may prefer not to allow it into their personal worldview and therefore, based on the strength of their will and belief, prevent it from manifesting in their reality.

This Law explains also the very real danger of cults, particularly Slendy and friends.

Dr Seuss

I had a revelation at work last night. I know who Slendy is...

He's the Lorax, and he's beyond bent out of shape about his trees. Somewhere in the course of going to law school to take his protection of the trees in a legal direction, he snapped...

Or he's the cat in the hat after a horrific shaving accident... cat always did like messing with our heads...

(This is how my brain works on a deficit of sleep.)

The Laws of Magic

Think of magic like a car. Almost anyone can drive a car with the proper training, but if something doesn’t work right, very few people can fix it on their own. You can be given instructions, but when magic (or your car) fails spectacularly, you can end up injured or dead. So it is then quite important to understand the finer laws of magic if you wish to become adept at using it, not only to fix what doesn’t work, but to avoid injury of yourself or others when you delve into the greater mysteries.

Like Newton’s law of gravity or Einstein’s law of relativity, magic has its own theories, here called Laws, but also referred to as Axioms in many old books. These explain how thought energy influences the physical world. There are twenty-seven laws, not including their sublaws (which make it thirty-nine).

Every tool and symbol, every herb, stone, or other item used in a spell, is merely a way to maximize your thought energy to ensure that the thing you want to occur does. Using such tools allows you to focus on the tool as a symbol of your will. That is not to say that these things do not have power on their own, but understanding the Laws of Magic will allow you to benefit from the energy intrinsic in such paraphernalia, thus allowing you to reserve more of your personal energies for emergencies.

Magic is dependent upon thought, but not only your own. Beliefs have power, traditions wear pathways through reality that make movement in one direction or another easier. Just as ley lines collect the excess energy that living things naturally release in the course of existing, there are patterns of thought which have power through the combined energies of generations of magic folk. The laws I will post here will allow you to access these energy patterns and bend them to your will. The time of miracles is quickly returning and those with the ability to influence reality should be made aware of these laws so that their lives do not end abruptly and spectacularly for want of a learners permit.

For now, it is important that you understand that science and magic are not mutually exclusive thought patterns. While Science examines the physical world, magic seeks to unlock the world science refuses to observe or even acknowledge. Both are extensions of philosophy however. For the purposes of explaining magic and science, there are two corresponding philosophies: idealism and materialism.

  • Idealism says that all of reality is based on thought. Thought creates matter. If your thoughts were strong enough, you could perform miracles... fly, walk through walls, create life.
  • Materialism pertains to the material universe.  In materialism, there is no room for thought to influence matter unless it is by artificial means.
Therefore science and magic become two extremes of a sliding scale, each a useful tool as we attempt to alter the world in which we live. Some parts of the physical world are difficult to influence with magic, but easily altered through the application of science. Do you suppose it would be easier to pick something up in your hand and carry it with you, or use your mind? The answer, while in some cases circumstantial, would be your hand. It is merely a matter of how you choose to apply the energy available to you.

Fun things for late at night when you can't seem to sleep.

Anonymous here...

First is the webcomic "Scandinavia and the World". Each character in this comic represents a different country. God it's just fantastic... sooo... yeah... check it out, you won't regret it! = )

Scandinavia and the World

Another that can take days to read all the way through is MS Paint Adventure's "Problem Sleuth" and "Homestuck". These comics are done in the style of text based adventure games. Problem Sleuth gets pretty complicated near the end, but not nearly as much as Homestuck, so I strongly urge you not to skip ahead in the stories and read them both all the way through. (they are not directly connected as of yet, so you can read either one, but choose one and stick with it. X D ) Oh also, Problem Sleuth is finished, but not Homestuck.

Problem Sleuth

Next for people who like watching videos of funny critics (like I do.) there's the Nostalgia Critic. He's damn funny and reviews stuff that would be from most people's childhood. (If they're under 35.) But yeah, give him a try!

Nostalgia Critic

And for those of you who love ranting comedians there's iLL WiLL PreSS's "Neurotically Yours" with Foamy the Squirrel, also there's 2 the Ranting Gryphon and his show 2Sense. Honestly anything from Neurotically Yours is amazing so give it a try. 2's show 2Sense is really good, though they don't have some of the older episodes on there, but you can watch a lot of them, also he has some of his rants (videos and audio rants.) on there too. enjoy!

Neurotically Yours
2 the Ranting Gryphon

And for those of you who never want to sleep again, there's Stumble Upon. This is like a search engine... only you just tell it your interests, and it will pull up random websites related to that. You can spend HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS on it. Believe me. But it's great. X D

A Few Things

A long term form of home protection is planting ivy and holly right next to your house and letting it grow up and around your house. This protects against evil.

This is going to be an amulet one. Take a small jar, like that you could put a string through the cork at the top and wear around your neck, and stuff an aloe leaf in there along with some anise. Then pour some (fresh, like you squeezed it) apple juice in there with it. The aloe is for peace, the anise for protection, and the apple for good luck. This should help you avoid being hurt, and finding peace wherever you are.

Also anise can be kept in your bed to protect against nightmares.

Oh if you're on the run try putting some basil in your wallet. This promotes wealth. Maybe it'll help you find money while you're on the run. =3

That's all for today folks. See you later.

EDIT: Speaking of Mystery's recommendation, if you want to use an actual apple for something, trying cutting it in half so you have the five seed parts (making a five pointed star.) Ya know, just try it out, instead of just having the whole apple sitting about or little cuts of it.

Random thought

A random thought which bore strange fruit... ever hear that song "I whip my hair back and forth?"

Well since I'm free and stuff...

I'm making a humor blog... Probbaly aint gonna go well.
Have fun, stay safe, and be happy.


Dream Defense

To help keep your dreams nightmare free I have a few things you can try.

First, get a bunch of Betony, and stuff it into your pillow, like into the stuffing, and sleep on this pillow. That should help prevent nightmares.

I recommend NOT doing anything with Cowslip if I were you guys. It can be used to contact loved ones who have... departed, while you're asleep. If that's something you're interested in, try grinding some up, putting it into a teabag, make tea from it and after drinking that, go to bed and see how it goes. I've never tried this, because I don't have anyone who is dead that I'd like to talk to.

Hell... i think that's about it for now. EveN though i only gave that one example of how to keep out nightmares, Believe me, it's effective. A last miNutE word of advIce Save any left over Parts Of plants that you don't use durIng your Spells. Other thaN that i believe that's it.

Do with this information what you will.

Something Interesting and Funny for Runners.

Anonymous here...

I was watching Ask a Ninja (Don't judge me!) and he interviewed a guy named Ze Frank. They mentioned that he made something called "The Show".

I looked it up, and god it's funny and awesome. It was made for one whole year back in 2006. It's pretty much a news... vlog... randomness... stew of greatness. X ) I HIGHLY recommend watching it. It'll take quite awhile to watch through all of them, but at least it'll be something for those of you who are running to distract from your situation for a little while.

The first "The Show"
