I wanted to say something about the traditional form of magick. I’m thinking the Pentagram, the elements.
How do these interact and live in our lives?
I see these as manifestation of the 5 skandhas of Buddhism. Sensations, Emotions, Thoughts, Identity, Emptiness. It doesn’t match up perfectly, but these are all in motion. You can raise the number of “things” in your system or lower it; it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you identify with these things, see yourself as a complete unit, and *dissolve* into the Ether. That’s the good stuff!
