This is a roundabout way of talking about spirit work and education. I want to talk about a little work that I have been doing. I don’t want to get into the details of it (I can be a little cautious that way, my nod to the injunctions toward secrecy or, at least, intimacy), but I’m hoping the sketch might still serve as an case study.
As I consider how I have made use of sigils, I have been trying to recall when I first came across chaos magic. It was probably sometime in the mid-1990s. I was living in Reno, coming out of high school and starting college, and had found a few magical bookstores to explore.
Gilles Deleuze returns frequently to the question of time in his philosophical work. It forms the basis of early texts like Difference & Repetition and The Logic of Sense, it defines his late works like Cinema, and it is everywhere in-between, including Thousand Plateaus with Felix Guattari. What is the punchline of all that work? Time is fuckin’ weird.
