“The Mechanics of Magic – Magical Machines Throughout Occult History”
Throughout the ages, select individuals have chosen to look deeply in to those aspects of our world that remain hidden, to more deeply understand how we affect change in this world beyond the standard mode of the masses. These individuals can see the connections between the physical realm and the spiritual, and through contact with the spirits these individuals have developed tools in our world that aid in the affecting of the world of spirit, and spiritual tools to affect our physical realm. These individuals are the Magicians, or the Mechanics of Magic. During this discussion, we will learn of many different types of magical machines created through the course of our vibrant occult history, from the sympathetic magics of ancient shamans, the curse tablets and other magica materia of the PGM, magical machines in the grimoire tradition, beginning with “Picatrix mechanix”, or the art of dialing in the perfect astrological elections to empower talismans. We will also discuss the concept of Art as a magical machine, specifically the multidimensional machines in the work of Michael Bertiaux. The discussion will conclude with a presentation of several examples of magical machines from the authors’ collection including a new device created specifically for this discussion.
