Is any wizard interested in practicing the ancient pre-christian polytheistic/henotheistic religions like Greek or Norse paganism? Have you ever tried to commune with the Gods?

Why is practicing Paganism larping but practicing an Abrahamic religion isn't?

 No.62123

>>62122
because one is still insitutionally practiced

>>62123
Neo-Pagans have their own organisations as well.

At any rate, all of the arguments offered up for why it's supposed to be larping is some variant of 'paganism is dead'. But Christianity could also be said to be dead. It hasn't been a relevant ideological force since at least the 19th century, it's for the most part not taken seriously in developed countries and most of its recent converts are found in irrelevant third world shitholes.

If it's just a numbers game, what amount of followers or what percentage of the population needs to be Pagan for it to be considered a real religion? Jews are less than 1% of the total world population but their religion isn't considered larping.

>Abrahamic religions have actual unbroken traditions
>Abrahamic religions have an ancient lineage of a initiated priests
>Abrahamic religions have a body of doctrine debated and developed over millennia
>Abrahamic religions are the basis of the civilization you live in and inform its moral values
>Abrahamic religions have established methods and ritual
>Abrahamic religions offer solutions to the problem of temporality and transcendence
Nobody says that Buddhism or Hindu-religions are LARPing either. But paganism is, the expression "pagan" itself denotes that, and in regard to religion it only makes sense in relation to another religion, and that as an insult. What exactly is this thread about? Do you think an Ancient Greek and a Norseman practiced the same religion? The most they had in common is that both had beliefs that revolved around ancestor worship, and nowadays most of their descendants have had Christians ancestors for more than a millennium. "Paganism" as a religion is not dead because it was never a religion, it's even less legit than the guys who claim to follow the Jedi religion from Star Wars in real life.

Don't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity

Anybody into SHTF related hobbies? I started with prepper stuff the past year and it was quite helpful to be prepared before normgroids started panicking with the coronavirus. I'm reading a lot on the topic and trying to improve in different skills for when SHTF, if ever. Perhaps this doesn't sounds as a very wizardly hobby but I find survivalist stuff interesting and training different skills and improvisation helps me concentrating and not being devoured by my thoughts. I think it's good for wizards

The prepper scene is full of larpers, lunatics, and useless garbage but thankfully there's people who survived through IRL SHTF events and their experiences, giving genuine and useful info for beginners. My recommendation for newbie wizards interested in this area is to read Selco (Bosnian war survivor) and Ferfal (Argentine economic collapse survivor). They're among the most genuine out there and there's lots of common points in their thoughts and advice

What is the advantage of this over simply saving all that content on a hard drive? I get the whole solar thing, but what is the point of the raspberry pi?

 No.62035

>>62034
hard drive is for storing information, pi with IIAB is for broadcasting information (and other things) via hotspot so any device can access it. you could NAS some hard drives but the power for simply spinning a single hard drive is more than running a pi. with a pi you have very low power requirements, so you dont need a big battery or solar panel to keep it running 24/7. the idea behind this is a humanitarian project called solarSPELL.

it's basically a plastic tupperware with all this inside it
-solar panel
-raspberry pi
-voltage regulator
-portable usb charger

they make these things in bulk and ship to africa and other poor places so for example you just throw it outside in the sun and suddenly your classroom has a virtual learning environment (IIAB includes learning and educational stuff like khan academy for example). it is extremely cheap. but the battery system they are using doesn't provide 24/7 power

Just got into gardening and shooting guns since the beginning of this year. It's made me think why the hell isn't everyone taught these kind of life skills growing up? Just like how everyone should know how to take care of their own car. More useful than 90% of the shit you learn in high school.

Yeah I agree, I think your chances of survival in an urban area when true SHTF is nil. Your best chance of survival is in a rural area with as you said, a closely-knit community.

I've got a shitload of food, ammo, water barrels, ham radio, "kool gear" etc. stocked up, but I know it's all completely useless as long as I'm still living in an urban area. Though I'm planning to get the hell out of here in 4-6 months.

I'd definitely advise against getting into the Arkham LCG if you aren't going to eventually buy 2+ expansions. The core set is the worst game related product I've ever purchased(slightly less bad now with the revised core) and with just one expansion the cardpool is a little shallow so it's kind of just an extremely expensive mediocre campaign game. The whole thing is on TTS though along with custom content, and is probably a better experience due to the lack of setup, so I'd still recommend checking it out there.

Is Aeon's End good with only one character or do you need to play two? I love the concept and the art, it reminds me of 90s pc games, but I'm not a huge fan of managing multiple characters in such complicated games. Which box would you recommend, I think there are like 5 now.

Just looked it up while typing this out and saw there was a steam version, got excited before seeing what an absolute mess the UI is.

>Is Aeon's End good with only one character or do you need to play two?
you can perfectly play it single handed, however the game does get considerably harder and you lose some of the fun combos that can only be done with two characters.
Playing with two characters at the same time its not hard really, its perfectly manegeable as there's not that much bookkeeping.
>Which box would you recommend, I think there are like 5 now.
I personally started with the original Aeon's End box, I think its the ideal starting point and it comes with a pretty decent cardpool so it can last for a while without having to immediately buy an expansion.

Also I might give the Arkham LCG on TTS a try, I usually feel like TTS is way too clunky and confusing for me but might work just to try it.

Cute. They combined zombies with idols and actually made it work well. They were hotter without their makeup tbh. Those dark blue circles around their eyes and stitches looked good, but the eye size perhaps made them all a little too cutesy, except for Tae who has small eyes and never regained her ability to speak. I also loved when Sakura's eyes popped out of her head from shock and the time her head came off and they had to distract the visitor so he wouldn't figure out they're zombies. The Lily tranny arc was interesting, and the courtesan arc started interesting but it dragged on a tad long. The full metal jacket reference was on point, and so was Sakura's introducing the succubi as 1-ko, 2-ko, 3-ko, 4-ko, 5-ko, 6-ko and 0-ko to that old lady at the shelter following the flood. I could keep going, but it might be pointless with a 3 month old post. Shall I continue?

some things that cause me a bit of concern:
- toki pona li lili. toki pona li jo e nimi ale. taso toki pona li jo e nimi tu tawa jan Sonja esun.

- jan Brown kepeken toki Loglan sama jan Sonja kepeken toki pona. toki pona li open ala open? ken la tenpo kama la mi lukin e pakala.
- Brown:Loglan::Sonja:Toki Pona. Is Toki Pona open source? I could maybe see issues in the future.
- toki pona li wawa tan nimi lili. pu li open e nimi lili e sona pona lili. taso ku li mute e nimi. tenpo kama la toki pona li jo e nimi mute mute anu seme? Kepeken nimi mute, ona li sona ala sona e toki pona?
- Toki Pona's strength is few words. The first books establishes a small vocabulary and minimalist philosophy. but the second publication expands the vocabulary. Will Toki Pona have a lot of words in the future? With a large vocabulary, would one learn Toki Pona?
– taso: ku insa li jo e nimi pimeja. ni li toki e mi tawa toki pona li muse awen la tenpo kama.
– Counterpoint: the second book has blank words. this tells me that Toki Pona will stabilize.

Every language grows like this. Even the cheatsheet you shared comes with some unofficial words like 'epiku' which are not part of the language, they could be considered as 'slang'. I think the core language is pretty much set, and that should be considered sufficient for a user of the language to start being active in the community, yet as always, actual fluency will take time to develop, as well as acquaintance with the 'slang', think of how english is sufficient to browse image/textboards but the concepts and vocabulary is pretty rich and ot takes some lurkin' to start talkin' the talk.
>Is Toki Pona open source?
It's not a software implementation. There's a little book and that's pretty much it. There's no way they can make it proprietary. If Sonja ends up being a tyrant, the community will keep an existence independent of whatever plans the creator has for the language.

Anyway I wanted to say I appreciate how you can be so focused in something and document your thoughts and whatnot and keep this thing alive in an otherwise prettu slow board (wizchan is the only site with a hobbies board that I know of, kinda sad no other site exists for this kind of talk), I can't really focus much on a thing for a sustained period and I don't dare document my progress for several reasons either.

Yeah, it is strange that wizardchan is p. much the only one. In fact, the /hob/ board on Wizardchan really does feel like a COMPLETELY different board from Wizardchan proper. It feels like /hob/ is the main, and the rest of the board is containment.

I’m not into meditation at the moment (it’s not for me), but when I was I found out about this book, bought a physical copy, and read a few chapters. It’s well-written and the introduction felt quite relatable. That being said, I do recall some spiritual mumbojumbo later on in the book. Classic stuff though, not new age nonsense. Anyway, the author put the whole book online for free: https://www.vipassana.com/meditation/mindfulness_in_plain_english.html

I hope you find what you’re looking for.

meditation is sort of like lucid dreaming to me
when i achieve a lucid dream, and i become lucid, then i feel two things:
1: incredible excitement because i feel i have a superpower in my hands
2: afraid to use the superpower because i fear that this state will go away when i use it

when i attain a peak meditative state, i feel like i have a superpower, that whatever i decide to focus on, will see big success
at the same time, i know that once i divert this deeply meditated state onto matters such as work or imagination, i will become distracted, and my mind will thus leave that meditative depth

maybe it needs more practice until i can maintain that state


how i attain it:
- relax body and breathe deeply and gently through the nose
- focus unrelentingly on my breath (meaning, do not for a second divert focus away from the breath)
- when unrelenting focus is had, relax whatever strain is necessary to keep up the focus, without losing the unrelentingness (meaning, relax the brain and the breath as much as possible without losing a non-divertive focus)

- keep breathing gently and deeply, keep the non-distracted focus, and relax the body and the brain further and further
- this will cause a brutally unrelenting, but still incredibly soft and silky focus that requires 0 effort
- at some point ur focus will be birthed into reality, the focus is no longer artificial
