This thread is for discussing your successes and failures with magic(k) as well as occultism and metaphysics.

Don't try. Trying means you don't have it. Just relax into the feeling. There should be no effort.


I'm sorry, but I do not get what you mean by 'relaxing' all my thoughts are tried. Do you mean day-dreaming these "wishes"? If that's the case then I had many daydreams about things before and nothing ever came out of them


There should be absolutely no difference between the feeling you have when you're meditating and the feeling you have when you actually get the thing. Trying to attain the desired state is a difference. Feeling the desired state in your head instead of in reality is a difference.



Just finished skimming through Abra-Melin.
The first part where Abraham describes the various feats of magic that he's witnessed is pretty interesting. But then it starts to go downhill quick when he begins rambling about how all magicians who aren't God-fearing Jews are going to burn in hell or get cut up by serial killers. This goes on up until the point where he actually delineates his techniques.

It's letter-squares, which I've never really tried before. From the instruction he gives it looks like most of the spells are designed to simply conjure up illusions. Fake food, glamours, that type of stuff. I tried one that was supposed to change the operators appearance, and it did shift the form of my face rather noticeably when I looked at myself in the mirror. Not hugely though, I still looked like me.
Analyzing how these are designed, I'm guessing that the major factor that goes into these spells is adopting the mantle of authority in order to control the spirits, which is why the faith in God is so important, for Abraham at least; he's basically using the Will of the Jew-god in order to power the spell. The letter-squares are just sigils that denote the intent you're broadcasting at the spirit.

So, the key takeaway from this book is that you need to have faith in something in order to reliably perform magic.

Did I post this while I was sleeping?


el español es chill as fuck


>In fact I've learned about ~3000 vocab words purely in romaji
Holy fuck, imagine knowing 3000 words and not being able to read most of them, that must be depressing


a year later, I must thank you. now I'm still learning Russian and I'll take your advice really serious.


Japanese using the most primitive technology available to me: books, pen and paper. Any time spent behind the glowing dopamine rectangle is an opportunity to become distracted. I am putting my productivity in jeopardy at this very moment.

What are the most autistic hobbies? The most hardcore and obscure interests that a normalfag can never hope to penetrate? I don't mean retarded lolcow shit, but things that require study or have a technical bent. Pic related kind of, that's the sort of stuff I'm getting at.

I'm not sure what I would call it to refer to it casually, but I like to combine knowledge of different, usually unrelated things. For example, making a mini hydroponics system you can control and monitor from some device would be a combination of botany, fluid mechanics, general handyman skills, programming, and networking skills. You might call it tinkering but the best part of it is the study and learning process of acquiring the skills you think you need, and learning from each successive failure until you get it just right!

I also really like models and displays, like pic related. A whole world full of happiness and comfy all built by me!

Started working away with the knife, chisel some newspapers, sheet metal and a 5 dollar metal scissor. I still suck at making stocks and my rotating bolts wear out quickly. Mags are also a lot trickier than one would think. Thanks for the encouragement wizard


Very cool, anon

Thanks anon, Really mean it. Been working on a PKM too but there is just a shitload pf material and bending the receiver and top cover is a bitch with no bending equipment. Trying to figure out the stock folding mechanism of the aks74u. The fire control group is pretty much finished with the trigger getting cocked by the bolt moving and the disconnector is working. The inner rails are hard too, the piece keeping the bolt from rotating early gets pressed hard enough that if pops loose too which I need to figure out a solution too. In the meanwhile have this small model I made in an evening 90% from memory.

can anyone else not take asian movies seriously? they look like babyfaced bug people so any "seriousness" is quickly lost especially when you hear the ching chong bing bong language

seems like every movie is the same C-tier garbage just like Bollywood cinema


I have a hard time watching asian movies because it seems like all asians look the same and I have a hard time telling apart characters, they are hard to follow unless the characters have distinct style(hair, clothes), maybe it is because I only grew up around white people but that is one of the main problems for me


sometimes I dip into korean or japanese movies, they have their…problems, but that's not one of them to me

Literally lookism, but don't worry cause it's normal.


I grew up in a racially homogenous white country, but I never had an issue with telling people of other races apart from one another. I never understood this meme.

Glad I'm not the only Devuan user here


very interesting, what program makes the metal boxes for the eight ball?


There is no need to post mine because its just Ubuntu 16 with default Unity shell and wallpaper.

Its funny that one of the reasons I wanted to switch to Linux was for these ricing\desktop threads but I soon realized it was retarded. Same for distro hopping, I will just stick with Ubuntu for a very, very long time, it has everything I need for development.

I dont want to go full sperg on this stuff like I do with basically every game that can be modded.

Very wise wiz. Linux is really only useful for tech-related work and if you cant deal with Windows updates and licenses or when need to go full tin-hat.

If you value your time or just want something that works stick to Windows until Linux becomes mainstream.

Any other wizards into combat sports?
I have done Krav Maga (2 years); it was ok but I can see why people say it’s overrated. Did some BJJ at an MMA gym but it was expensive as fuck. Boxing was the best so far; nothing has tested my fitness, strength, timing and precision like boxing. Class was always all male.

Really want to try Muay Thai. What other fighting styles are wizards into?

I miss grappling.
I want to throw some people or work on chokes and locks.

Striking arts start feeling stale after awhile.


You're limited on how hard you can go with striking in sparring. You don't want to go to hard and get brain damage from repeated concussions.


Not really what I was talking about but whatever.

It's more of doing the same thing over and over again for years.
There are only so many ways to punch and kick a person and it be effective.
I miss the various techniques, always having something new to work on. I feel like with striking once you got the main stuff down all that you can really do is grind your physical and mental abilities.


Anyone know where cheap wrestling/judo mats can be bought?

Thinking about getting a 10x10 for ~$500 unless I find a better deal.


You're limited in grappling too. Nobody wants to go 100% most of the time in BJJ.

Fry some onions, garlic, and bell peppers with fajita seasonings and then toss in a can of red kidney beans or black beans and heat through until it's hot.

Easy delicious meal with high protein.


Bean and cheese burritos with lettuce and salsa


What's fajita seasonings?


Just the typical spices that are used in fajitas. Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and perhaps some chili powder (cayenne / paprika are nice).


when I run out of real cheese I use that grated parmesan crap in bottle you shake out on stuff and it's not a bad substitute, it melts decently well on burritos if I nuke them

this thread ran for a long time

It's really exciting to FINALLY see some novel firearm/ammo designs, after 60 years of stagnation and endless AR-15, AR-18, and AK clones and derivatives. I was getting sick and tired of hearing people parrot "small arms design has plateaued, the AR-15/M4 is peak and cannot be improved upon!", and just sick in general of how fucking boring the gun industry has become. Even if these rifles don't succeed in replacing the M4, I hope they are successful enough in testing to show that, yes, there are still improvements to be made in small arms.

I'm thinking about earning money through vending machines. Let's start a thread about vending machines, from hobbyists to those that profit from them.


You can't. They're all owned by the big industry and no one's going to put your machines in place over a big companies.


Where do you live that this is true? I live in the third world and an acquaintance claims he has a vending machine gig that earns him roughly 30 USD a month


30 USD is chump change. And a third world country is likely to see the machine stolen from isn't it?


Vending machines are not a hobby and no one puts them up as a hobby.
You are asking about job advice which is by default not a hobby.

Why did you think it was remotely reasonable to put this thread here instead of lounge?


See what this person says about vending machine gigs.


"Chump change". Its by no means a job, much less a way to earn a living.

Also I'm sure there must be people into vending machines as a hobby just like there are train hobbyists or whatever that thing is called
