| Introduction to Magick Lessons|
A long long time ago before the Internet there were these silly things you could dial up with your computer called BBS's. Anywho, in this ancient age I picked up a nice series of text files that give some light lessons on magic. They touch on a lot of topics, and they certainly aren't extremely in-depth but I enjoy them alot. There are about 10-12 of these files and they are pretty short. I'll publish one on this board every 2-3 days. Feel free to ask questions or comment on these lessons. I hope you enjoy them.

Oh, weren't those the days! The "Golden Age of Home Computers". I LOVED my BBS days (1985-1996). So much fun connecting to all the myriad flavors of BBS's...and there were so many for a while, you could satisfy your entire myriad computer-lusts without ever making a long distance phone call.
Remember before "echo mail"? We couldn't network with other BBS's members without connecting separately to other BBS's that were mostly long distance. But with echo mail, that all changed. And one of the most popular echo mail services was "usenet". There were (and still are) other great ones though, such as: FidoNet, Ilink, Intellinc.
Those were also the greatest times for computer gaming, IMO. Remember Sierra Games' "Space Quest" series? Weren't they a hoot? Of course, there was also the glorious "King's Quest". And many others I'm too lazy to mention right now. My all-time favorite "vaporware" game, though, is "Star Flight" by Tandy. I'm trying these days, to get an old copy of it, that will run on my system (with cheats, of course).

Weren't there all sorts of arcane literature provided in a very organized, digestible way, through these BBS networks? An incredible explosion of information of excellent quality, if one had the savvy to sift.
Anywho (too), I will go through each of these excellent lessons in order to learn more, and participate herein, especially giving my own opinions as a Natural Witch.
Speaking of which: Obviously my two fun messages ("Witness the Gay Miracle" and "Gay Guy Discovers Universal Field Theory"), were spells themselves (hell's bells!). But I didn't realize that except with some hindsight. Apparantly, I get overwhelmed with a new creative idea, and forget everything else, and just type away, then disseminate over cyberspace.
I guess, then, I could say I "go into trances". I have recently learned about natural witches, and what kind of powers they have. One, is the ability and/or preference to come up with your own spells for everything...and to have a very "natural" flair for doing just that.
So sometimes I'll just whip up a spell on the fly (no, not a real fly; this is not that kind of spell)...quite spontaneously. I usually won't even realize I had just cast a spell until perhaps hours or even days or weeks later! (And, occasionally, months or years. Whew!)
Since I have awakened to my "natural witchiness" several months ago, my life has become quite amazing, and me, quite the busy little bee! I had no idea how exhausting this all becomes...I'm a powerful psychic channel just exploding with aura! Edgar Cayce had it easy: he was the sleeping prophet. Me, I'm wide awake, bouncing all over the place in quaser-hyperdrive. Believe me, buddies, I earn my gifts; not like Mr. Cayce, who sleeps through most of it while the client checks all pile up on his desk. Yeeeesh!
A few days ago I came into a cafe looking real exhausted ('cause I sure was). So I remarked to the cashier after he tossed me a smile: "You know some people are psychic, and help the police department find missing children and killers? Well, I'm one of them; and I'm supposed to be on vacation. But get this: true psychics never get a vacation. Never, never, ever." Then I sat down at a table by the window, and sipped my java, trying to recoup some of my expended energies.
So I'm using this new-found power first, for Gay Rights...after first securing the longterm health of our planet, overall (including elimination of war and nuclear weapons). So the world should soon see a tremendous welling up in every society, by angry gays who no longer ACCEPT the current status quo of homophobia, which runs a vicious reign of terror through most countries, still. And I shall be their leader! Nay, I ALREADY AM!
Enough bragging for now: gotta read my first lesson.
Witness the GAY Miracle

Aw Zeke! You are a boy after my own heart. I started talking about the BBS's in the intro section and it looks like the same thing was on your mind. There really were fantastic days when computers where still alien looking devices to most people. I remember echo mail being such an amazing concept. It's nice to look back on those days because it makes me really appreciate things like this board and e-mail. Who knows what the future holds.
I do remember space quest, and even more so I remember King's Quest. Playing King's Quest 1 on a friends Apple 2GS is what started my love for computers, no kidding! My parents set me up with my own IBM and I was hooked. I miss the old adventure games, back when you had to think and follow a story instead of just shooting everything. I have all the KQ games on CD. I loved Sierra and it's too bad some crap company bought them out.
It's exciting to hear the discovery of your powers. I hope these magic lessons can help you out. Some of the early ones may sound tedious, but read through them all. They lightly cover most occult subjects and it will help you find your main interest. I'll be sure to start posting the rest every 3 days or so. Feel free to ask any questions about them too.
Making your own spells is a strong form of magic, much stronger than doing something from a book that many other people have done. It's a good step in the right direction. Making things up on the fly is like Chaos magic too, and that may be something you want to look into as well.

I do believe in "love at first sight", but this is amazing: "love at second sight"! We CAN do something about this, you know. You can rush off to the airport and take the next jet to San Francisco. Call me when you arrive, and we'll take it from there.

It sure was a fun time, for cerebral folks like us...who play great adventures with the mind. What a coming together of like minds, eh? Its legacy still resonates with great strength and persistance. You should be proud (as I am), to ride the crest of that phenomenon...we are vanguards!
<< Who knows what the future holds. >>
Nah. Who's still on first base, What's on second. Why holds the future in his hands...but How?
<< I miss the old adventure games, back when you had to think and follow a story instead of just shooting everything. >>
And the pure animation was a real blast...and I'm talking about that period of computer animated VGA and SVGA gaming up to the time they included real photos of real people in these animated games.

Ahhh, but Golden Ages must also pass...that new ones may arise from the piling up of decayed matter. (Dinosaurs gave us oil; humanity gives us gas. )
<< It's exciting to hear the discovery of your powers. >>
Personally, I'm stunned most of the day, like always being in a trance. Then again, maybe if I stopped smoking pot each and every day for the last 7 weeks...
well, forget that!

They are very well written, I can't applaud enough this little masterpiece of World Wisdom.

Well, thanks for your directions. However, what I am already doing with my magicke is of a quite advanced nature...albeit received intuitively rather than intellectually (consciously). Apparantly, my subconscious -- and/or "spirit guides" or "angels" -- have been training my self since childhood, to reach this incredible level. IOW, I've been practicing magicke in a most potent form, SUBCONSCIOUSLY since I was a tyke. Now, I am becoming FULLY AWAKENED, to find myself richly blessed and empowered. So I'd say my methodology and philosophy of the Magicke Realms must be quite advanced and established by now...and could only have been born of many years delving into the various mystical sciences (such as Chaos Magicke and the Kabala).
However, it is my intellect that thrists for affirmation of what the intuition already knows. Thus, my reading of the materials suggested will provide much nurturing for this battered old Intellect Of Mine that can't seem to make head or tail of anything these days!
I don't intend to appear smug in my reply; but it would seem there's some tongue in your cheek, for so blithely treating my astounding declarations like mundane activities common to every Jack that's ever spit on the ground. I didn't expect such a reaction. What I did expect were one of two things: (1) seeing me as insane, so handling me with kid gloves, or (2) helping me prepare the way of my destiny (for some of you are my Guardian Angels along my path). Ergo, your unexpected response was the cleverest one possible, given the circumstances of my own personna.
Well done, Jay!
(You may be a Phule, but certainly no one's fool.)
