  1. Nostradamus - Method, Result, and Teaching (Part 1)

    I've been mentioning Nostradamus a few times lately, and I realize people may have some preconceived notions about him due to his portrayal in media, and some of the representations of his works. Early on in my "esoteric" journey I found my way to a pretty search Nostradamus research forum (at least there was a sub-group of serious members).

One memorable thing was the depressive state i was in, each day i had to wake up and drag myself to this pathetic excuse of an educational center. I literally hated it. To add to that, i disliked most of my classmates. Their constant babbling about nonsense really acted like a drill in my head.

  5. Conjunction Junction

    I can remember, before I had read up on alchemy in any meaningful way, coming across references to alchemy that almost always mentioned the 'conjugal' (or even 'pornographic') imagery associated with it. Prime examples would be the Rosarium Philosophorum and Donum Dei. I'm sure most people reading this will be familiar with some version of the typical "Conjunction" (siue coitus) imagery:
