they definitely do rule the world because of their involvement in the occult, specifically the dark occult. when you are literally a satanist who thinks hes the highest being in the universe and can step on anyone else, that gives you a lot more freedom than people with morals.

now onto whether or not the occult has anything to it, spellcasting i dont know, but truths about reality really do have something to them. most people think that they are the result of whatever chemicals are in their brain, they think that they cant even change themselves. most people do not understand that they have rights inherent to creation, making it very easy for a government to control them. thats just to name a few but you can bet that little of what the average person believes about reality is true. its not so much that occult knowledge helped the powers that be to rise to where they are, but they used the lack of knowledge others had to put them down.

Here's Kyle Odom's manifesto. A very interesting account of being 'attacked' by astral entities.
First Odom experiments with meditation, and has a mind-expanding experience. He experiences a series of synchronicities that, I believe, were meant to steer him away from his mundane goals and towards occult evolution, like what he experienced initially. But he rejects these signs and continues to stubbornly pursue his lesser obligations. I believe that this is largely a result of his materialism (God's not real, heaven's not real, Earth is all there is, etc.) So, the synchronicities start becoming more and more obvious, and Odom, being a materialist, cannot interpret them correctly and comes under the assumption that he is under attack. This mind state of fearful victimhood attracts actual psychic predators to him, which he mistakenly believes are 'martians' using advanced technology to harass him.
It's really sad, if he just kept up with his initial progress all of his pain could have been avoided.

I now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
Many people act like simply researching these very alternative ideas is damaging in and of itself. Popular on wizchan youtuber named "K9 Aversion" recently announced she will no longer be creating content simply because people among her fanbase were discussing 5G towers and anti-vaxx ideas within her communities. Discussion alone is so offensive? Why? I do not even believe many of the ideas proposed myself and just enjoy thinking about them.
Because of these extreme reactions, I feel it necessary to give this disclaimer. Again, I do not necessarily believe the things proposed in this thread but rather enjoy thinking about it.

Please do not discuss theories that are political in nature in this thread. I don't want it to be deleted, although I find them interesting as well.

Some examples I've been thinking about lately:
- Alien abductions are real, however they differ from the normalfag idea of an alien abduction in that real abductions occur spiritually and not physically. And these abductions are NEVER to your benefit and you leave very unhealthy and emotionally damaged. They happen during the sleep normally, however sometimes they can happen while awake and when this happens it's similar to a date rape drug– you have a 2-5 hour blank spot in your memory when you "wake up" and have a feeling of general unease.

- The extension of the flat earth theory which claims the entire sky is a hologram, and sometimes that no planets except Earth exist. There are many youtube videos that document sky hologram "glitches".
- Alternatively (not flat earth related), that the sky is itself a giant living organism and that it sometimes sends shards of itself down to attack or observe people (they look like blue blankets and fly at great speeds.)

- You can fall through the ground like a video game glitch and get stuck in an infinite void on certain parts of the planet.

- Dinosaurs existed up until the early 1900's as evidenced by dinosaur tracks on the top layer of the earth that are way too well preserved to be from 60,000,000 years ago.

- Some gnostic wizards think that if they become spiritually elevated enough that they can cease ingesting food of any kind and live heaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

If you were to drop a ten strip of some really rare chemicals, you'd be with the extraterrestrials within hours, or so the theory and legend goes. That's only the tip of the iceberg.. rumor has it that there exists a paranormal entity that can remove all the nerves from your body leaving only your eyes, brain, and central nervous parts - and make you watch as it pokes holes in your brain with a needle - with you completely powerless and without a body. Not to mention - in a lot of drugged pain. Lord knows what they might do, perhaps drug you with a degree of lethality or perhaps they give you a lobe transplant with life-altering results, like you take a hit of cannabis and lose it completely with a giant spider's 300iq frontal. According to the legend, there exists a unit tasked with dealing in the paranormal, leucotomizing overpowered bodies, finding ways to leucotomize them to make your life a whole lot safer and less dangerous is what they do. You could meet one of them in your day to day life - a conqueror of the paranormal. They go from dealing with hophids all the way to dealing with the creator of the universe themselves, of often dying in the process. We pay them in regenesis and monetary wealth, oftentimes it requires an immense amount of pavlovian conditioning to keep one from their very demise. And that's all I know. What they call them I'm not sure. There's another about the state of the police in the united states of america but I'll leave it to someone else.

you havent mentioned any conspiracy theories, you just like the paranormal. there has only ever been one conspiracy (worth talking about), and that is that occultists rule the world. if you realize this then things like politics dont matter anymore.

>>53624
thats not a conspiracy theory, youre just a solipsist. if you think your mind is the only thing that exists, its the most fundamental fuck up you could ever make in life. if you dont think that a higher power exists, then you think you are the highest power, and therefore you decide what is right and what is wrong. every door to evil has been opened up, you can kill, steal, torture, and get away with it, because you are the one who decides if you get punished or not.

being a solipsist also blocks off every path to knowledge there is (unless you unironically think you are god, which if you do i cant really do anything). if you dont believe a higher power gave you a working brain, then who did give you a working brain? there is no way to know if you a solipsist, because you would be using a potentially faulty brain and potentially faulty reasoning to answer the question, therefore all knowledge is unknowable. all knowledge and the search for the truth hinges on one belief, that it can be found. this is why no occult school in the world will allow atheists in, they are unteachable.

That's not one conspirancy, that's a concept of one. Which I agree is one of the most important, but be no means is "the only one" of that type.

It’s a hobby that occasionally yields fruit in all sorts of ways you wouldn’t expect. Especially if the detractions that come from deprograming certain habitual behaviors relative to turning you into a black sheep don’t matter so much to you day to day life.

Does anyone have experience with camping hammocks? I'm looking in to alternatives to conventional tents and these seem a lot more streamlined in terms of setting up and packing away. They make double wide models with 300lb capacity that should nest me and my gear comfortably which would be neccesary if it started to rain. What bothers me though is how inexpensive they are, not just online but also from brick and mortar stores. It might just be that no big name brand makes them so there's no pro standard with a beefed up price tag. I have a 360 subzero insulated sleeping bag so if I do get one I MIGHT be able to pass on buying a quilt liner, will need to test. Still, $25 for this highly rated 500lb hammock seems too good to be true.

Well I ordered a hammock, a seperate rain fly, and a new smaller sleeping bag. Hopefully this will open up my sleeping options and free up pack space as the sleeping bag, mat, and tent I have now take up most of my bag, and it's dar too wet this time of year to sleep on the ground.

I enjoy walking in quiet woods unpolluted by engine rumbling and people and other human noise. When I get the chance. When I can get to a place like that. A lot of places look nice but are noisy. But a good walk in a nice place is a fine thing. I have majorities of days just walking before.

As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.

I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.
