This is more of an ETA than a post, brief and a little prospective. I realize that I have been using ceremonial and spiritualist a little fast and loose and will likely keep doing so. It’s convenient, cuts along some important joints, and gets at some confusions that I think hinder discussions around ‘magical’ and ‘occult’ work. That said, these are broad cuts and they aren’t the only cuts that can be made. They are exemplary only. I hope to talk about some other circuits, too, as well as here and there touching on the complexity that each circuit can manifest (part of that fractal thing again–complexity within complexity). I do think that a little history will be in order, if for no other reason than to establish the framework that I bring to the distinction.
