Mike Hughes joins me as we talk to Gordon White about his latest book on Chaos Magick, called Pieces of Eight. We deal with science and materialism, Consciousness and UFO's, mythology, Folk Magic, Ritual and much more... This is part one of two.
Also, please excuse the coughing, I was sick, thought I had my mic muted, but apparently I did not. Also couldn't edit it out.
Find Gordon at Rune Soup.
This was an idea presented by Roejen of Project Archivist. He wanted to know, with more and more people getting into Magick and such, who were also Christian, how people worked those things together. Is there a contradiction in beliefs? Are they compatible? We are joined by Aaron David of Charm the Water, and Michael M Hughes. There is also a second show from this night for Patreons on Magick and Altered States.
Outro Song is Left Hand Path by RADII.
A listener, and I believe a Patreon, had asked if we could do a show talking about Magick. It's something we reference a lot, but take for granted that people know about. So, I brought together Michael M. Hughes and Aaron David, who have both had much experience with the subject, as well as myself, and Adam Sayne, who is not so experienced, to keep us grounded. I hope this is as interesting to everyone as it was to us!
End song is by RADII, Left Hand Path.
One of our Patreons, Alfred, asked us a great question which we try and deal with in this show. He asks, What is the evidence that whatever appears to be behind myriad phenomena (ufo's, sasquatch, fairies, etc) is a non-human intelligence? How do we know it is not a manifestation caused by some kind of collective human unconsciousness? What kinds of questions can we ask to determine which is the case?
So on this Roundtable, we first discuss the story of strange knocking noises on the Chinese Space Station. Then we deal with some questions a Patreon had in our AMA post... What scares your round table the most? What are the things in our world that really makes us sit up and say, DAMN, that is interesting or just plain unbelievable? Who we listen to and respect, besides the run-of-mill standard answers. What keeps us from going "crazy" looking for answers in fields where most of the times the answers are not what you would think or maybe never be answered? What are all the people seeing in the cypto field, is it mainly misidentification or are people really seeing a really high number of strange creatures in the jungles and forest? Also why are orbs or lights often seen at night during a strange creature sighting? We talk about all this and more...
Outro music is "Tree People" by David Wirsig. Find him on Bandcamp.
I return to Greg Bishop's Show for a roundtable discussion...
On this roundtable, we discuss Demons and Demonic, a subject suggested by one of our Patreons. We discuss the orgin of Demons, Exorcism, the concept of Evil itself, and much more...I am joined by Joshua Cutchin, Red Pill Junkie, and Micahel M. Hughes.
Outro Music by One-Eyed Doll "Afflicted"
On this Roundtable, I am joined by Joshua Cutchin, Michael M Hughes, and Greg Bishop, and we start out discussing the history of Government disinformation and Tom Delong's current 'revelations'. Tom is the former lead vocalist of Blink-182 and has been making the round revealing what his government souces have told him. We compare it to previous incidents like this and try to determine what is going on. Eventually we drift into concepts of what reality is and more...
Check out Greg's awesome Radio Mysteriso!
On this roundtable we talk about a bunch of news articles and what they may mean to the bigger picture. We talk about why people really go missing in National Parks, and why so many may be of German heritage, The mysterious Clown scares in South Carolina, The tardigrade genome, the latest SETI signal, EM Drive, and much more... I am joined as usual by Red Pill Junkie, Joshua Cutchin, and Michael M Hughes.
In this roundtable, we talk about some of the weirdness that surrounded our Fortfest appearance, the latest new on the antikythera mechanism and what it really may mean, and, set off by the movie, The Body, we discuss religious perspectives, as well as some political ones, and delve just a bit into conspiracies...
