>revolution to overthrow an unfair class system >goes to war to spread the revolution across the world Was the French Revolution (and other revolutions of the era) and the Napoleonic Wars the spiritual predecessor to Marxist revolutions? Is the struggle of classes a cycle that will one day erupt again?

Enochian is an interesting though incredibly complex system of angel magic developed through the late 1500's by John Dee and Edward Kelley. To make matters worse it appears we're missing key documents, and some of what we have was used as a wrap to bake a meatpie. The subject is so unwieldy that it would probably take the entire thread for an introduction, so I'll just touch on some main points and source references:
True and Faith Relation, key source narrative: https://archive.org/stream/truefaithfulrela00deej#page/n7/mode/2up
The Great Table, an online resource for navigating the central cipher of the system: http://keepsilence.org/greattable/
There are a goodly number of texts in the library which break down the actual system of magic, transmitted to Dee and Kelley through complex ciphers, and backwards at that. There's circumstantial evidence that Kelley was introducing material from Lurianic Kabbalah. The material was used to spy on other nations for the British crown on the approval of Elizabeth herself. They were also alchemical explorers and contributed to the development of the failed attempt at an alchemical kingdom of Frederick V the Elector Palatine. The following McKenna documentary covers much of this period in terms of alchemy, though it's a McKenna doc. so be prepared to take aspects with a grain of salt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjCjwZfyyBM
Others have used this material, including the Golden Dawn and later Crowley. We know that Dee was standardizing his notes via Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, which segues into the other topic for the thread: Asterism.
>>354547 Agrippa relied heavily on planetary and stellar magic. Some of my favorite material from this is Agrippa's elaborations on the Behenian Fixed Stars. Budge (who first translated Coming Forth by Day for a wide audience) asserts these have a Sumerian origin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behenian_fixed_star
A new list of important stars appears with some ominous implications in Crowley's working of the Enochian material in Algeria: >And the tablet blazeth ever brighter till it filleth the whole Aire. And behold! there is is one God therein, and the letters of the stars in his crown, Orion, and the Pleiades, and Aldebaran, and Alpha Centauri, and Cor Leonis, and Cor Scorpionis, and Spica, and the pole-star, and Hercules, and Regulus, and Aquila, and the Ram's Eye. >And upon a map of the stars shalt thou draw the sigil of that name; and because also some of the letters are alike, thou shalt know that the stars also have tribes and nations Cultus Sabbati is a modern synchretic system working out of Draco, which the Arabs reckoned as hyenas attacking a family of camels.
There are tons of great star myths of incredible importance through India. One of my favorites is that of the Matrika, or the star goddesses of the Pleiades, sometimes reckoned to be the wives of the Seven Saptarishi, or wise saints which appear to function as living vessels of stellar transition and are associated with Ursa Major. The Matrika on the other hand round out a list of entities in some tantrik traditions which may be invoked into a properly trained aspirant. Matrikabheda Tantra touches on some of this material and may be accessed via the library. There's a huge amount of material on these subjects, my paragraph is just a springboard.
>>354571 Anyway, what interesting, obscure, or wild stellar myths do YOU know? Or have info about. I'd love to know more about traditional Chinese astrology and/or what the Norse were doing with the stars. Any info, particularly with [citations] is appreciated, though the traditions and systems mentioned above aren't set in stone.
>They both bore it as though in deliberate flagellant exaltation of physical misery transmogrified into the spirits' travail of the two young men during that time fifty years ago, or forty-eight rather, then forty-seven and then forty-six, since it was '64 and then '65 and the starved and ragged remnant of an army having retreated across Alabama and Georgia and into Carolina, swept onward not by a victorious army behind it but rather by a mounting tide of the names of lost battles from either side Chickamauga and Franklin, Vicksburg and...

>>354390 some stupid bullshit from /x/. Basically they say that They remember something different from what most people remember. Like "i remember as a kid it was Berenstein Bears but every time i see it now it's Berenstain Bears. It's bullshit like everything on /x/
I was wondering if anyone could tell me about this; This is my great grandfather's it seems he was part of some protestant order in Newfoundland Canada, this was before Newfoundland was a Canadian province though.
I'll post a couple pics to make it easier to read. It says he was part of a royal black knighthood or something, not entirely sure what it's about. Any information will help.
Were there any Christian counties that executed for apostasy /his/? Currently debating a Muslim apologist who is trying to excuse the current apostasy laws in Muslim countries. I've googled but all I get is Christians being executed in Muslim countries
Has any political organization ever in all of human history been as depraved as ISIS? Was any ancient army or modern totalitarian state so complete remorseless that they'd have little kids murdering people for spectacle?
I'm legit wondering if humanity has reached an all-time-low.
Content warning. Watch at your own discretion. It's an ISIS propaganda video with little kids individually executing a dozen or so captives. Near-Hollywood level production values and camerawork.

Do you think if Holocaust never happened (fuck off /pol/) Hitler would be remember as yet another conqueror instead of a monster? In fact I think if he just worked people to death and shoot them like Stalin did and didn't say anything about master race and subhumans he could get away with it Stalin did kill a lot of jews he just wasn't openly antisemitic and guess what? A lot of people completly forgot about it.
Even without the holocaust the Nazis were still a scourge. They brought war to Europe, unlike Stalin. They killed people based on race (yes, not just the Jews), unlike Stalin (admittably, the the mass deportations had ethnic motivations and some say Stalin killed based on class, which is quite horrible as well).
So in short, the Nazi Emprie would be remembered like the Chinese remember Japan. Not just another conqueror.
