What Magic is This?: Austin Osman Spare

Posted on January 7, 2021 by Douglas Batchelor 

Quote:Starting off the New Year with a Titan of Magic. Austin Osman Spare means many things to many people. For some, he was an extremely talented Artist whose antisocial behaviour and unwillingness to compromise left him forgotten by the art world. For others, he is the grandfather of sigil magic; a fiercely independent occultist who came up with his own system of magic which was considered revolutionary long after he passed away. Chances are we will never get the full story of the magic of Austin Osman Spare, but we are able to look back and see that his story is not what it seems.

My Guest for this episode is none other than Derek Hunter. Derek is a writer of fiction and non-fiction, the founder of Love Chaos, a non-dogmatic, agnostic philosophy and way of life. Faced with many trials, he was seeking to find a philosophy to help navigate the world, yet he found that creating his own was by far the best option available to him. All of Derek’s work can be found at his website. Click the pic!

'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

This guy looks incredibly interesting.  I have just seen some of his amazing artwork and anybody with a unique approach to thinking, whether it be occult or non-occult philosophy is IMO well worth taking an interest in.  The "Pariahs" very often see farther than the consensus.

I've been using sigil magick for several years now. If nothing else, I enjoy the feeling of control it gives me over things that otherwise would feel insurmountable. If it actually works? Well, all the better then.
