I've had..... (Closeup, cue music) A VISION
Over the last few days I've been having an Enochian Vision. No, not the type by John Dee, you'd have to read the Book of Enoch to understand the reference correctly. It's the best phrase to describe what I've envisioned. I've got an image of reality that binds together quantum mechanics, time, Crowley's definition of 'Will', magic, the special theory of relativity with temporal paradox, ecology and the secret to immortality - In short, science and magic, phsyical and spiritual.

I don't know whether to spend the effort to write it all out or not. On the one hand, there may be something here. On the other hand it may be complete BS. On another hand, I might be able to use it to form that cult I always wanted, on another hand do I really want to be the next L. Ron Hubbard? Sure part of me thinks owning a cult could be great fun and I could use the income to do good works and offset my own evil. The other part of me shudders at being surrounded by needy people who would never understand my vision anyway and would warp it into some horrible parody of itself (which, frankly, might be a lot like making a parody of a Monty Python movie. Don't think about it too hard.)

What do you think?

By all means feel free to use the word 'orthogonal' as many times as you like. No promises on joining your as-yet-presumably-still-putative cult, though; I'd probably end up just being your first heretic schismatic, and have to be shot and buried out back of the compound in an unmarked grave at 3am on a moonless night, or something.

Naw, I won't shoot you. But you can only take blondes when you schism. I get the redheads and brunettes.

Hm. Given that I married a redhead, maybe I'll just call the whole thing off and quietly sow discontent among your formerly fervent congregation instead.

Alright, you can keep that one, it's only fair.
amblinwiseass From: amblinwiseass Date: April 18th, 2008 05:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, okay! In that case we'll just take the two smartest blondes. (What? You can't play spades with less than four.)

Pffft! With TX cult mortality rate? I don't think so. It will definitely be incorporated in Delaware with a big center in Los Angeles and headquartered somewhere in Ireland, maybe Bavaria. (Depends on the price of castles at the time.)

Augh! Why would you want to incorporate your cult in the state that's like the one-calorie diet version of New Jersey?
caliantrias From: caliantrias Date: April 18th, 2008 05:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Because Delaware's incorporation laws are really, really lax. Look at any big corporation. 90% of them are incorporated in Delaware and HQed somewhere else.

Oh, okay, yeah, that makes sense; I actually once worked for such a corporation, so I'm not sure why I didn't pick up on what you were saying. I guess I'm not used to thinking of cults as being run like corporations, though there are enough similarities that I don't know why the idea should seem at all strange.
amblinwiseass From: amblinwiseass Date: April 18th, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, if you won't join the cult, I guess the cult will have to join you.

I hope you've got room enough in your yard for all the tents!

If I can be serious here for just a few microseconds -- if you've seen a way of looking at the world that makes it make more sense, then absolutely yes I do want to hear about it, and that's not anything like a joke. If there's even a reason I'm here at all, which I very much doubt to begin with, then I can only imagine that reason to be so that I can make what sense out of the world I'm able.

Bad news, what I've envisioned only makes the mystery deeper, the universe bigger and the possibilities more vast.

I want to read it, but "no and please delete your blog" would have been funnier. =)
caliantrias From: caliantrias Date: April 18th, 2008 07:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Adn it would have eased the pressure. Too much pressure!!

I am up for joining - but only if you tell me what 'orthogonal' actually means!
caliantrias From: caliantrias Date: April 18th, 2008 07:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, that's actually going to be the first post. I'm thinking I may have to create a new journal for this. The details keep expanding in my mind.

What did we tell you about the brown acid?
caliantrias From: caliantrias Date: April 18th, 2008 11:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
You said it was chocolate syrup.

So, you want to create a cult?
