I've done most of the most amazing things life has to offer at a very young age. As such, I'm open to everything, knowledgeable about way to much, been to to many places and seen to many things. the rest of my life will never be as interesting as what has come to pass. It's like reading a book and watching a movie. the book is better. It always is. Books use your imagination, movies use the directors and unless you grew up together I doubt you have the same opinion. Life ahead of my is more like superman returns so far; nothing new and interesting so far. My past is like Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end.
I was born in Perth Australia and have lived in New Zealand, Israel, England and a few places up and down the US. Thai and Aboriginal on my Dads side, Apache on my moms.
Let's see, I use metaphors a great deal but I hate them. Metaphor is one of a group of problem-solving medicines known as figures of speech which are normally used to treat literal thinking and other diseases.
I try to be authentic to my dreams. Authentic to my own ideas about myself. Grind away at my own mind and body until I become my own invention. A Mad Scientist. I bring joy to the world. I am filled with mirth and sunlight. Also, I am Batman. (Twice a year)
I've spent a long time running away from what I was supposed to be in order to be what I thought I wanted my life to mean. turns out the two aren't too different at all.
Also, all this magic stuff needs new terminology because it's not what people are being told it is at all. It's not all this wearying symbolic misdirection from the Victorian Age, when no-one was allowed to talk plainly and everything was in coy poetic code. Stop with Qabalah and Thelema and Chaos and Information and all the rest of the metaphoric smoke and mirrors designed to make the rubes think magicians are "special" people with special powers. It's not like that. Everyone does magic all the time in different ways. "Life" plus "significance" = magic.
