an unconventional person.

Hello everyone, I just stumbled upon this site at random, and decided to join. I will start by introducing myself as Warlock Xyra.

I personally prefer the term warlock, yeah I use it for myself. This is because of the history of the work warlock meaning pact breaker, referring to a pact between a divine being and humanity to not use magic, and my use of magic without any following of any gods at all. I find it a fitting and appropriate term.

So... Some practitioners may wonder... Without gods to work with, do you honor anyone? No... I don't use shrines, I don't hold nature as sacred, and I don't see even death as supernatural.

Instead, I see magic as another means to understand the world around me, by understanding the laws of the universe, (math, physics, chemistry, similar things) one can learn to take advantage of them. Meaning I neglect herbs for an understanding of biology and chemistry, I neglect crystals, and prayer, for technology. In fact magic can downright border science as far as i'm concerned. Sometimes these things so closely intermingle, it's damn hard to tell what most people would call it. At times it means I build my own tools, and utilize energies like electricity, other times it means I do very similar things, record my results, and get repeatable results with a documented series of steps for a documented result. Usually it means a lot of crazy ideas, and a lot of failures in my experiments. Still, after 14 years of practice, it's been a nice learning experience.

Likewise my friend! I was just thinking how fascinating it would be to debate philosophical concepts with you!

Greetings and salutations as well. I am also seeking connections between magic and science, though I have yet to find a link with technology. May I recommend your researching Noetic Science and Alchemy/Hermeticism for others who do not see magic and science as separate.

I'm always looking for new things to research. From what I've seen of alchemy it's basically chemistry, with a few other things. But I didn't look into it long enough in my own opinion... I'll be sure to look into those when I get the opportunity.
