TAZ by Hakim Bey

THE UNIVERSE WANTS internal linkTO PLAY. Those who refuse out of dry spiritual greed & choose pure contemplation forfeit their humanity--those who refuse out of dull anguish, those who hesitate, lose their chance at divinity--those who mold themselves blind masks of Ideas & thrash around seeking some proof of their own solidity end by seeing out of dead men's eyes.

Sorcery:  the systematic cultivation of enhanced consciousness or non- ordinary awareness & its deployment in the world of deeds & objects to bring about desired results...Where our knowledge of beauty harmonizes with the ludus naturae, sorcery begins...Sorcery works at creating around itself a psychic/physical space or openings into a space of untrammeled expression -- the metamorphosis of quotidian place into angelic sphere. This involves the manipulation of symbols (which are also things) & of people (who are also symbolic) -- the internal linkarchetypes supply a vocabulary for this internal linkprocess & therefore are treated as if they were both real and unreal, like words.

internal linkImaginal Yoga.

The sorcerer is a Simple Realist:  the world is internal linkreal-- but then so must consciousness be real since its effects are so tangible.  The dullard finds even wine tasteless but the sorcerer can be intoxicated by the mere sight of internal linkwater.  Quality of internal linkperception defines the world of intoxication -- but to sustain it & expand it to include others demands activity of another kind -- sorcery.

Sorcery breaks no law of nature because there is no Natural Law, only the spontaneity of natura naturans, the internal linktaoTao.  Sorcery violates laws which seek to chain this internal linkflow -- priests, kings, hierophants, mystics, scientists & shopkeepers all brand the sorcerer enemy for threatening the power of their charade, the tensile strength of their illusory web.

A poem can act as a spell & vice versa--but sorcery refuses to be a metaphor for mere literature--it insists that symbols must cause events as well as private epiphanies. It is not a critique but a re-making. It rejects all eschatology & internal linkmetaphysics of removal, all bleary nostalgia & strident futurismo, in favor of a paroxysm or seizure of presence.

The tactics of ontological anarchism are rooted in this secret Art--the goals of ontological anarchism appear in its flowering. internal linkChaoshail Eris!hexes its enemies & rewards its devotees...this strange yellowing pamphlet, pseudonymous & dust-stained, reveals all...send away for one split second of eternity.
