When I was a kid, my parents made this special egg for Sunday Breakfast we called “Eiertöpfli”. This was always our special and I have never seen it anywhere else. Today I prepare our sunday breakfasts and (apart from Grapefruit, selfmade stonebaked bread, self made marmelade from my wife and Coffee from our La Pavoni) I sure make “Eiertöpfli” for my three sons and my wife.

Tales from the Bookworm's Lair

DSC_0663 Who hasn’t wanted to own their own copy of a genuine, mysterious occult tome? I’ve previously posted here and here about the mostly still unknown Voynich Manuscript housed at Yale that’s been puzzling scholars and occultists for a long time. It’s clearly a beautiful physical artifact as much as it is a source of knowledge. Ambush Printing is a publishing house that specializes in hand-made reproductions of historical documents and they have decided to produce copies of the Voynich Manuscript for purchase. They have a complete copy of the Manuscript available for $200, printed on vellum and bound in leather, just like the original, as well as an 18″ by 24″ print of one of the illustrations also on vellum that is normally $25 but appears to be on sale for $10 currently. Check them out here .

Der Androgyn oder auch Rebis versinnbildlicht die Vereinigung von Gegensätzen – ein kosmisches Prinzip, das in östlichen wie in westlichen Überlieferungen gerne durch erotische Darstellungen symbolisiert wurde. Vögel, oft blaue Adler, verweisen bei den Alchemisten auf die kontinuierlichen Verflüchtigungen oder Sublimierungen, die im “Werk” stattfinden; hier symbolisiert der aufsteigende Adler, der den Androgyn emporhebt, und die toten Vögel zu seinen Füßen die Verflüchtigung des Festen bzw. die Verfestigung des Flüchtigen. al-4

Sangaku – Japanese Sacred Temple Mathematics

•March 7, 2014 • 1 Comment

Magick is a great subject to investigate. It leads you to a lot of very interesting topics which demand your attention.

Just before Christmas I was in a discussion in an internet Forum about magick, the occult and other secret things. And I was rambling along the lines that there are fairly little secrets around especially knowledge wise and even less if you really start to investigate things. Fremasonry for example,  you should be able to find every little information that the Brethren have, what you do not find is the experience of a well done Ritual. The other guy just stated quite quickly: “Well Sangaku is” and with this he send me of to an interesting intellectual journey.

The New Seers and the Struggle for the Abstract

Centerfold of Silence Centerfold of Silence

The old seers solved a serious problem of the ancient seers building societies that slowly unraveled the mysteries of the universe.  At the same time, they created monolithic agriculture and social structures that began a road to global human dominion and international conflict. Old tribal allegiances slowly evolved into nationalism and ethnic prejudices. Meanwhile specialization split the seers into two generalized groups.  While these two terms can actually be applied to ancient times, reaching back into pre-written history, they clarify the split what occurred during the process of empire building into two broad camps.  These two groups are creators and sustainers.
