QG ruins everything.

I resent the implication that I had ANYTHING to do with the recent meteorological goings on. I swear every time something gory falls out of the sky You People show up with the torches and pitchforks.

 :angrymob: :angrymob: :angrymob: :angrymob:.... oh. I... I guess we'll just return these to the rental place. Sorry to be a bother.

some things are kinda written by my website manager and friend. :3
however, Cyn Chaote is dead due to other reasons. i am the only one who resides in the body... though i share the memories.
in regards to entheriogenick... (my friend came up with that, and i suppose so.) :3

*nods

So you claim to have been permanently evoked into a live body, but the spirit of the previous owner has left the building. Interesting. Was Cyn Chaote seeking to be a vessel for you or was it more of a happenstance that Chaote was on the way out and you needed a vessel? I guess I'm asking you for clarification on the circumstances of your transition if you're willing.

I've seen several possession phenomena first hand and know of more cases and also traditional rites that allege to temporarily invoke various gods into usually willing hosts known as "horses". In these cases the owner of the body is still in there somewhere no matter how deeply buried. Your situation is something new to me. I would very much like to better understand how it happened.

entheriogenick

Please define this word for me. Do you mean something like entheogenic?

I actually didn't mention the best part of that whole thing here.

The sexual assault was made by one of our resident students, and I was the one who dealt with the situation.  Management went completely AFK, I had threats to get a foreign embassy involved (all the students are international), I had threats made against the student alleged to have done the deed by another staff member, I couldn't initially ID the student in question because we didn't have basic working office equipment, if proper staffing levels had been put on to allow for regular patrols (since this was a massive arrival day, with 70+ students and 4 groups arriving) then the incident may not have occured ....

It was a clusterfuck of a night

Sorry to hear you had a bad night. Your shit reminds me that there are worse things than doing a 2 person palletizing job by yourself all night, and that really sucks on its own. Hang in there Cain. I hope that you find better work one fine day.

Herein lies the problem with most archaic and contemporary secret societies, spiritual organizations, and magickal orders: they gain much more from you than you gain from them.   

Still combing the site a bit at a time, but  this stood out. I would venture to say that the same basic problem applies also to most of "worshiping" various entities. You say that you have permanently invoked "Capeditiea" and are a willing vessel as such. Have you, "Cyn Chaote", gained more than you gave in that transaction?

Well, having put more thought into it, I think the world needs more Pagan forums.  I mean, it's not like every cafe druid and cherohonkey with a copy of Mists of Avalon hasn't started one, or that they ALL turn out the same way.

Prediction:  No matter how good the intent of the 3 people involved, no matter what examples they have to warn them, within months they'll be strongarming people with the mod button.

Why?  Because Paganism is - and always has been - about control.  Gardiner and his friends, in Wicca's case, wrote that RIGHT INTO THE RELIGION...So that they could use it to control the rubes that followed them. 

TGRR's Dictum:  A Pagan board will go mod-happy just as soon as they have a base of believers that have to be "protected" from any test of their ideas from an outside person or group.

I'm in the process of reading the thread. Just thought I'd move a copy of this here quote to the recent pages for reference.

From how things are going in the thread so far it seems almost idyllic. Best keep on reading!

Cram I think that given your fiscally responsible habits you mentioned in your "jailbreaks" thread that it may well be worth your while to bust your wallet open and pay what you can to proceed down this path. We're talking about less money than some folks spend on their Steam accounts per year. On the quest to understand "What do I REALLY value?" observing what you spend for and how much could be a good point of reference.

They don't sound predatory. Given that they are not taking advantage of you it would seem that they are sincerely trying to pass on knowledge that can only be approached in stages and that is possible to abuse in the wrong hands. The "cult" is as much a filter as it is a means to interact. When you reach a higher level they may ask for more money or hand you some magical worldview as a next step. At that point you will have to decide whether to proceed at your own discretion, but for now it would seem to me that making the financial commitment alone could be a sort of jailbreak moment all on its own.

Holy crap.  I had forgotten all about TSC, and looking back, that has to be the ALL TIME CHAMPION proof of TGRR's Dictum.

What is TGRR's Dictum?

Make sure you have low-to-moderate alcohol intake with naproxen.  It can really fuck up the liver.

Yeah.. been thinking about never drinking again anyway. If I do I'll flush my system for 24 hrs first. I still may do a drunken rant here and there.

I'm steadily getting used to the raw physical nature of my work. The first couple of weeks saw me REALLY wrecked after a shift, and now I'm merely exhausted after doing a two person palletizing job by myself for 8 hours. Probably be doing the same thing again tonight. I've worked 4 days a week so far and clear about $300 a week after taxes. Compared to what I'm used to this is an exorbitant amount of money. I'm going to save as much of it as I can and try to get a vehicle before the contract ends in October. Then I'll have more options for employment.

Watch your back.  I mean your literal back.

I am, thanks. I stretch and use the best body mechanics the situation permits. I also just bought some Naproxen to help with swelling and various aches. My body has limits and I listen to them. But nothing has been pulled or torn. At the moment that I'm typing this with about 440mg of Naproxen in my system I feel pretty good overall.

Just don't literally watch it, because that will lead to neck problems.

 :lulz: :lulz: Got it!
