    Default New here... sort of

    Hello. I have been here before a long time ago on a different name (Noctiluca Moonfly, I believe) that seems to no longer be in the website database. Did something happen to this website? It seems different. There are definitely less posts and no more blue background. Someone hacked it?

    Regardless, I am here. I would call myself an occultist or a metaphysician. I do not have much experience as I am solitary. I am a bit confused on where to go. I have recently been researching the Sumerian-Babylonian pantheon(s), but have also been working on my own spiritual philosophy.

    I have reached the conclusion that religions were nothing more than primitive humanity's way of explaining the unknown. I think it is kind of ridiculous that people still take them literally even with our advanced science. Of course, science does not know everything, and I do think it is still catching up to things that occultists have already understood.

    I believe in other dimensions, which I sometimes will collectively refer to as the astral plane. I believe in a life-force(s). I feel that religions, deities, rituals, and tools are merely methods by which a human can link the conscious mind with the subconscious, thus entering a state where "magic" can be worked. I simply regard "magic" as an easy word to explain the things capable by sheer will alone, such as telekinesis, clairvoyance, telepathy, etc.

    And on top of that all, I am also a nihilist, so while I acknowledge that there may be extra dimensions and such, that they are not necessary because life has no real purpose and objective morality is non-existent. I am also into LaVeyan Satanism, though I understand he stole most of his theories from people such as William Blake. Therefore, I create my own purpose which currently means existing to please myself and those I wish to please. One of the things that I push for, though, is knowledge. I think that people could truly progress more as a species if they were more intelligent. Though there really is no point to progress, I think it would be better than stagnating on a dying world.

    Oh, and I am into the goth subculture.

    Oh, I see. Well, I first went to OF.com and was surprised to see that it was taken offline. I thought that perhaps this was the website I had intended to visit. Adding to my confusion was the fact that the topics are organized in almost the exact same manner. Anyway, I am sure I will enjoy this website. Thank you for the welcome and the clarification.

    Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy it here.
    People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering. - st. Augustine


    Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods. -Albert Einstein
