Chaos Magic

A friend of mine posted a link to an article about Chaos Magic, so I gave it a quick read, having an interest in chaos theory from a physics perspective.

The basic gist of the article is that you can use cyberspace to host rituals intended to attain altered states of consciousness. Practitioners are then opened up to receive spiritual inspiration, visions, etc. I don’t really see this as something new or ground-breaking. In essence, it’s not any different from a televised evangelical sermon or recordings of chants, spiritual music, and so forth. The use of media as a means to create altered states is nothing new, but is effective. I guess I’ll have to watch “Altered States” again sometime soon.

Read the article.

    Don’t bother – that movie didn’t hold up very well over time. May I suggest instead Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain or Transformers Dark of the Moon (in 3D) instead?
