Magic 🤝 Crypto. 👀
On 2/24/21, I minted the first magic secret as an unlockable NFT.

If you’re into the crypto world or the art world, you know the industry is buzzing with talk of these digital non-fungible tokens. They’re revolutionizing everything.
Now that includes magic. Minting a secret on the Etherium Blockchain as an unlockable item for token owners has huge benefits:
1.Magicians can claim ownership of a method without publishing or disclosing it publicly
2.Magicians can keep track of who knows the secrets of a trick and who has the rights to perform/build an illusion.
3.Magicians can keep their secret encrypted in a secure location.

So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity
A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

1) Wherever I look these days I see #occult symbols and imagery. Was in Hyde Park yesterday and saw this bus with a big ad for #WitchesMovie. Image
2) There was this ad for #HamiltonMusical nearby in Elizabeth Street. Not about witchcraft, sure. But it still featured the star motif. This is basically an inverted pentagram. #symbolism #Sydney Image
3) This was display in boutique on Elizabeth Street. Has a #Christmas theme and it's not surprising that star (of Bethlehem) symbolism would be part of that. But what I think is interesting is that the stars are more prominent than the tree. Image

Today my amazing friend Kathleen died of brain cancer. She was, among other things, the most important teacher I have ever had. My first director in San Francisco, who gave me my first gig after having a baby. The greatest dance teacher of her generation ON THIS EARTH.
I like to joke that if I’d known I wouldn’t really be a great dancer until I was 30 I’d have had a lot more fun in my 20s but actually it’s only that I met Kathleen Hermesdorf when I was 29. Icon, teacher, mentor, magical friend who did not obey laws of physics like mortals do.
I never wanted to please anyone in my whole life as much as I wanted to please her when I was dancing for her, and then she taught me that it wasn’t about pleasing her it was about the goddamn WORK. Stop trying to fucking impress me, she’d say. It’s not FOR me. It’s for YOU.

Incidents relating to #black #magic.

So, it happened in 2013 and at that time my elder brother got married. My brother and my bhabhi were quite happy with each other and everything was good for almost 3-4 months. Then one day during night we all were in TV lounge and my bhabhi..
was sleeping in her room and all of a sudden she started screaming, my brother and mother rushed towards the room while me and my other brothers didn't went inside and she kept crying and shouting for almost five minutes then she passed out...
When we asked our mother what happened she told us that she had several cuts on her body like someone cut her with blade. Personally in my mind the first thing that came was she could've some medical issue and she cut herself as she was good with all of us and we were good...

1/124 This thread is going to examine & dissect the very specific behavioral-patterns, underlying market-architecture, fraudulent scientific methods, orthodox rituals of the vast pharma-wasp nest set around the queen wasp Christian Drosten (@c_drosten). #wild #ride #PCRGate
2/124 We'll examine the inner circle arranged around Christian Drosten's real time #PCR-test-religion; key wasp nest stakeholders are: Olfert Landt (@tibmolbiol), Andreas Nitsche (Tib-Molbiol, now @rki_de), @MarionKoopmans, @MackayIM, @DrTedros (@WHO), @wef and many more.
3/124 My prior thread scratched the surface when it comes to huge 'conflicts of interest' in regards to undeniable scientific bias & staggering commercial partiality, also already tracing the international scheme-vector Berlin to Australia.

1/2) An ancient “magician”: Before Spartacus another slave led a huge revolt; the charismatic Syrian slave Eunus gathered tens of thousands of followers to his uprising, attracted to the 'prophet' by his magical powers; most notably breathing fire as he spoke to the gods!.. Image
2/2) Unfortunately, Eunus' amazing hotline to the gods wasn't as magical as it seemed. Later writers outed his trick: igniting a perforated and sulphur-filled nutshell hidden in his mouth, which then emitted fire and sparks as he spoke! Eunus' slave revolt was defeated in 132 BC. Image
The career of the amazing Eunus is described by Diodorus Siculus (The Library, 35.2) as well as by Florus (The History of Rome) and Livy (Epitome 2.7) #magic #magiccircle #mentalism #religion #psychology @DerrenBrown #roman #history

1/n. Slow-moving thread on a series of related, relaxing puzzles. They all involve this game:

Label all vertices and edges of a graph. Use each number 1,2,3,... exactly once (don’t miss any). At each vertex the sum of its label and its incident edge labels must be a constant, h. Image
2/n The labeling is called “total” because vertices AND edges are labeled.

It’s called “vertex magic” because we form a sum at each vertex, and—magically—get the same result (called the magic constant) each time.

The 2 examples suggest questions, eg: which constants are ok&why? Image
3/n With the “weight” of a vertex being the sum of its label with its incident edge labels, we maximize the sum of all weights (and therefore the magic constant) by placing the biggest labels on the edges.

-Different magic constants are possible. 12 would be the largest for C_3. Image

Ancient Artefact of the Day: An eroto-magical amulet dating to the 1st-3rd Centuries AD, from Tarsus in Cilicia. The stone is ancient, but the gold setting is a modern addition. #AAOTD #Magic

Image: BnF (Inv.58.2208)
The use of 'magnetic stones' is well-attested in ancient magic, and there have been claims that the design of this piece may be linked to certain spells in the Greek Magical Papyri, such as Ogden's claim (2009: 262, 'Magic, Witchcraft and Ghosts in the Greek and Roman Worlds)...
... that this piece may be connected with PGM IV.1716-1870, or the so-called 'Sword of Dardanos' spell. This is primarily informed by the sexual position adopted by the couple, as the spell specifies engraving "Aphrodite sitting astride Psyche".

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:


This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif'

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)'…

I've only recently started studying Western magic, but I'm struck that, unlike in religion (!) belief is quite central to it. It's often referred to as intention but it's belief. In religion you can get away with metaphors, magic requires a stronger commitment to metaphysics 1/n
It might be that Anglo-American contemporary magic is influenced by Protestant focus on personal conviction, but #magic does rest on focusing the mind and believing in what one does. I've heard a senior magician saying that too much scepticism makes magic impossible. 2/n
Intention in #magic is not focused attention (e.g. I want X) rather it's an intention 'sent' to the universe/unconscious etc. that bypasses the rational mind, that's why I think it's more correct to talk about #belief rather than intention, in the sense of 'belief in' 3/n

The Rothschild Surrealist Ball of 1972 featured imagery that was meant to look “Satanic”(psyop) but to a more discerning eye, actually is mocking all religion. It features many sick examples of the infamous banking family mocking the rest of humankind #truth #SaturnDeathCult
more, do you see the Saturnian symbolism?
Why are the #Illuminati so obsessed with symbolism? Especially regarding horned gods, black cubes and the planet Saturn? #truth #SaturnDeathCults #NWO #awake #woke

We have the gold , in what form ?

raw earth gold or have we developed nuclear transmutation ?

If so , do we have the mercury ?…
Are Nuclear power plants secretly making #Gold ?

I call it #IndustrialAlchemy , you can call it whatever you like.

Have new technologies also be being hidden from this same process ?

China would most certainly love this ?

Could this be affecting #Gold prices ?

It's #MythologyMonday and today's theme is WITCHES!
There are two Greek gods who are commonly associated with witchcraft and magic. Most of you will know Hekate as the goddess of witchcraft but Hermes has his sticky fingers in everything, so obviously he dabbles in magic as well.
Illustration of #Hekate by Victoria Francés…
#Hekate is a titan goddess with power over heaven, earth, and sea. Her name means "worker from afar" implying the workings of magic, but her name is also an epithet of #Artemis as one who shoots from afar. In Roman times, Hekate formed the lunar triad of Hekate-Artemis-Selene.

Some of the #teamies, i.e. me, can't be there which is really sad but for a wonderful reason, granddaughter-sitting-Sadie-Rose. So I thought in celebration of the launch, I'd share some photos from the art exhibition that ran alongside the conference.
What better place to start than with the art exhibition team: @10PYusuf, The Dame and @Rodkippen.

There will be more!
#myboys😊 Image
@10PYusuf @Rodkippen As with many stories there was of course a #backstory - @DrDeeMichell and me(!) met at the Foundling Museum for a pre-conference chat where talked all things orphans and #CEP. Dee had travelled with hubby to be at the conference.

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up
