If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Hey there, Hi there, Ho there
« on: April 05, 2016, 06:45:25 am »
I'm not good with titles, so I'll just introduce myself as an ecclectic mystic.  Been studying a wide array of things for as long as I can remember, but I've not been too social about it.   Hope to change that here.  
I have varying degrees of education on:
Psionics
Ceremonial magics
Western Shamanism
Q'ero spirituality
Psychic experiences
Theosophy
and Crocheting...

That last one isn't obviously pertinent to the forum, but if you've never stitched with magic, I greatle reccomend it.

Welcome to TC!

I actually crochet (and knit) as a devotional activity; I've given a lot of thought to doing it as a magical activity as well, but haven't yet gotten around to trying it. :)

(...) Theosophy (...)


Which sort of theosophy are you interested in?

I admire the 17th and 18th century Theosophers, but I find the claims of 19th and 20th Theosophists ridiculous: I don't think it is a good idea to make dated or unfounded claims about geology and paleonthology into religious dogma, regardless of if the claimant happens to be a 1870s Russian medium, a bunch of 1920s Adventist ministers using the Book of Genesis as a paleonthological manual, or 21st century Hindu nationalists using Mahabharata as a science text-book.

Both Jakob Böhme, Genesis and Mahabharata deserve a more sofisticated hermeneutics than that.

I must say, I've never read the materials on Geology and Paleontology, but I've always enjoyed the organizational heirarchy of dimensions and energy that  Blavatsky put forewards (though I don't know if she was their originator.)

The existence of a literal Hyperborea, Lemuria and Atlantis, respectively, are hard to defend in an age of plate tectonics. Atlantis as an archetype within Mundus Imaginalis is something else entirely. Blavatsky and her successors Besant and Leadbeater also misrepresented the content of north-asian Buddhism. It has taken long time to disentangle the web of misinformation they concocted. Traditional theosophy is something else.
