The Trivial Psychic

A few years back, Saturday Night Live did a skit called “The Trivial Psychic” wherein Christopher Walken revived the same character he played in the movie The Dead Zone.

Beyond the obvious fact that humans often denounce what they do not understand, there is also the undisputed fact that magical practice flies directly in the face of the fundamentalist’s agenda: to proselytize, to convert, to Read more…

Pieces of the Pymander

The Divine Pymander of Hermes Mercurius Trismegistus in XVII Books was published in 1650 by John Everard.
