For the sake of brevity, I am not going to detail all of the theories of NLPinduction, meditative processes, brain entrainment, biofeedback,
and auto-hypnosis - even philosophical alchemy.It is a far and wide-ranging subject, that would require the time-consumingauthoring of a very large and complex book and an associated bibliography.I highly recommended that the reader educate themselves and do internetresearch and reading on some of the keywords and phrases listed above.It also would be advisable to have some working knowledge of induction of self-hypnosis, and meditative techiques such as "
" or fixed gaze meditationand "
" which is a method of deliberately controlled breathing.These are terms and methods worth exploration, and there are many books andwebsites that can provide further information - as well as exercises.It is worth note, that some of the information you will find and read is of asubjective nature - it is up to the reader to discover through "gnosis" or directknowledge - personal interpretations and conclusions.Your mileage may vary from my own, or someone else's.It is unlikely that two people would have the exact same experience.Perhaps, a very similar experience may be had - or - dissimilar experiences.My theory however, is that it will produce a tangible "experience" based on myown experiments and mulltiple experience with similar devices and operations.For the purposes of this monograph, I am going to assume - that you as thereader already possess a working knowledge of some of the methods andtechniques described and have done some at least tentative research on theseterms and have some familiarity with them, as well as ceremonial magick ritualprocesses etc.The reason is that I wish to keep the focus this monograph strongly on the actualconstruction and specific application and use of the device.
Here is list of materials and how to construct the Magick Camera Obscura. I haveused care to keep the device, inexpensive, simple yet flexible. It could be madein a more complex or expensive way if you chose.
