  Cynicism doesn’t allow us to make drastic changes in our understanding of the world. It also forces us to feel that we are always right. I propose that you do one nonsensical thing that might turn the tide. Repeat to yourself incessantly that the hinge of sorcery is the mystery of the assemblage point. If you repeat this to yourself long enough, some unseen force takes over and makes the appropriate changes in you...

I will organize a series of concepts that under no conditions should be taken as sorcerer theories because it is a conjunction formed by the Toltec sorcerers of ancient Mexico as a result of directly seeing energy as it flows through the universe.

The glow of awareness created by an external impact can be called temporary heightened attention, because it emphasizes emanations that are so proximal to the habitual ones that the change is minimal, yet the shift produces a greater capacity to understand and to concentrate and, above all, a greater capacity to forget. Seers knew exactly how to use this upshift in the scale of quality. They saw that only the emanations surrou...
