I'll reinforce what you said about Magister Nemo. His posts are almost always at an angle I never suspected. Its an absolute pleasure to bring him into any discussion. I always walk away with not only more knowledge, but better knowledge I likely had

Thanks for all the input on this thread...took a rather mundane topic and turned it on its head. I especially enjoyed the Magisters "flank attack" thought process, hitting the topic from and angle I hadn't fully considered, and I've also be

I'm experiencing a shift like you describe in my life right now. Having or not having a car becomes an issue very quickly if you travel a lot. Having one means flexibility at your destination, but it also means forgoing a quick plane ride to get the

Another excellent 3rd side angle from Magister Nemo! I'm hesitant to ask this question--that it may be considered arguing the point. I DO see what you mean about "elitism" interpreted as distinguishing between our actions and our identity,

Well done. I'm sure a word to the wise is sufficient--in that "manipulation" is a bit of a two-edged sword. Oddly, most lesser magic can easily be thought of as "manipulation" or thought of as "influence," but using the

To be truly one of the Satanic elite you need only grasp and embrace one single concept: You are not what you do. To choose yourself as your own God is to be truly elite. To have to first measure up to some external standard to maybe someday be &q
