[This is the first of the pages being fed back into the blog. It’s a bit heady, but it has some bearing on the matter of correspondences which I will be talking about in the near future.]
I picked up the idea of the virtual from Gilles Deleuze and it is a concept that has much utility as we set out to discuss what it means to talk about the spiritual world. On this page, I am going to provide a brief introduction to the concept and its applications to occult philosophy. To get at this Deleuzian approach to the virtual I will need to do four things:
- distinguish this use of the term from another popular use of the term.
- define this term.
- detail the relationship between the two uses of the term which partially justifies the same word being applied to both.
- highlight how all of this can inform occult thinking.
