For those of you who have noticed, this Luciferian often refer to the art of directing Will as in the practise of Magick, but many Luciferians do not practise any occult arts, or maybe if they do, they operate Magick without faith in external entities, but work with Magickal principles as an internal principle, as if manipulating their own psychological universe.
If so inclined, people will tend to choose wether to work from the theory that external entities are real, or people will work on the basis that any entity they interact with are a part of their psychological archetypes, or internalised personification of a certain aspect of themselves.
Either way Magick works. But that is not my point in this post.
I had this thought today that psychology (as in western/modern) is obsolete. As a model for understanding the human mind, and what make us humans, modern psychology can only give a few answers, while there are still many mysteries that are still unsolved.
Carl Gustav Jung was a pioneer in psychology, and as many scientists of his day also a practising occultist, as were Rudolf Steiner. These men have drawn upon the resources of knowledge handed down through Initation into secret mysteries, and presented ideas that could be organised into a system for understanding and improving ourselves.
Thus the links between the ancient interpretation of “gods”, spirits and different entities and forces have not been completely separated since a lot remains in terms like “archetypes” and concepts like “shadow persona”, and so on.
I think it is a pity that modern psychology has lost a lot of possibilities in conforming to the modern principles of science, which then limits the possibilities psychology could have, and its ironic to think too that psychological diagnosis sometimes is very difficult to carry out due to lack of empiric data, as is in the case of aspergers syndrome being almost impossible to correctly diagnose in adults.
I think also that throughout the ages, during all times and in all cultures, gods and spirits and entities have, from a scientific perspective, been archetypes to enable working with collective unconcious systems, or ideas that are part of a culture as a stream of energy, such as an egregore.
Thus being present throuout the ages, the ancient artforms were as art not limited to rational thinking, such as in modern science from the 19th century onwards.
Many methods, herbs, rituals and so on in various cultures were a comination of medicine for the body and mind, such as is the case of the role of the shaman in tribal communities or the druids of old europe.
Chemically speaking the key ingredient of many herbs are now found in modern medicine, often discovered houndred or thousands of years ago by munks or druids.
Today, the old arts of working with entities (although restricted to the individual’s mind) have been performed in modern-day times through NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming, with some controversy, possibly resulting from its powerful and immediate effects, that can go seriously wrong if given incorrectly as part of treatment.
So, the old arts are meaningful and can be related to modern way of working, and today’s modern way of working may be limited due to the constrains of scientific method only dealing with tings rationally, except for some controversial methods as NLP or more accepted terms like “archetypes”.
What then about psychology being obsolete?
Well, its my idea that modern psychology one day will be replaced by something else.
What it is, I don’t know yet, but as major change in science, medicine and the way we think about the human mind, a major change is highly likely to come in the near future, that may set aside many of the established theories, practices and assumtion about modern psychology and mental health.
Or even the understanding of the human mind on a much deeper level and with profound effects.
As I said I don’t know how, but I think the next evolutionary step is to combine the free and unrestricted way of working with entities as part of psychology with the science and rationale of modern psychology, resulting in the third, combined art, virtualisation and synthetis of what can be measured and the immeasurable.
What if the need to work with concepts as elements or the zodiac, or God or Satan or Astaroth, is the human computer’s way of running mathematical simulations?
