Simple Definition of Chaos Magick? » Pop Occulture

Simple Definition of Chaos Magick? » Pop Occulture:
"...Grant Morrison’s idea of the hypersigil, which is sort of where you create a fiction which becomes sort of a model or magnetic center around which you can constellate a new reality."

This leapt out at me because I think everyone does this all the time without being conscious of it. When you think about it, a government or an economic system is just one big story that people organize their lives around. So is a corporation. So are religions.

To me the cool thing about thinking about magick is that raises this story-creation to the level of conscious awareness. If you can create a compelling enough narrative, maybe you can step into it.


So is that what chaos magickians are trying to do - carve out a new identity for themselves by crafting fictions, which they then model their lives after, thus manifesting their will into reality?


Chaos magick - results focused magick that effects change through will, frequently by deconstructing schools of magick and adopting those aspects useful or workable.

The Jeet Kune Do of magick - absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add that which is specifically your own…

Chaos magick becomes not a style of magick but a delivery system… tactics, not dogma.
