You know, I like to contemplate on a lot of things, that’s what I primary do whenever I’m not actually doing practical magickings, and one of the thoughts that I happen to meditate on was the idea of revolution in magick and open source magick…
Personally, even though I see alot of material on magick in general these days, it’s just alot of the same things; this and that, named w/ a fancy name, fancy dressings, but the root fundamental of it all are the same things.
While we are in an era where information across the globe is easily accessible, we haven’t gone in the phase where we start refining this information into something solid and absolute.
I know it’s hard and there’s alot of issues; like social responsibilities, greed, secrecy, obligations, pride and ownership, etc. I completely understand though, I don’t wanna share all my hard earned secrets, things that I managed to understand after I put in the hours. I do understand that there’s a certain pride w/ being a master of a certain system.
I completely understand.
But with that said, where are the masters who are willing to put all that issues aside and just say “Fuck it, here are the fundamentals of this systems practice, feel free to analyze and make it better if possible.” Not even masters but just practitioners in general.
I know my attitude about this issue stems from my background in computers and the hacker movement but doesn’t the comparison seem the same? If we went open source already, we’d be churning out advancements in a couple of decades or so.
Think of the possibilities….
NOTE: Even as I wrote this article, I thought to myself, kinda hypocritical of me since I myself, has not released anything on this blog…We’ll, I used to but those posts were deleted since I restarted this blog. I will restart. :)
