3.0 out of 5 stars YES WELL, NO FINE, 6 April 2001
This review is from: Condensed Chaos: An Introduction to Chaos Magic (Paperback)
YES WELL, NO FINE! I found some parts of this book far more interesting than others, like the core principles of chaos magic, its history and the chapter on servitors with its practical exercises. Chaos magick's non-dogmatic eclectic approach is quite appealing. The section on Ganesh is also helpful, but unfortunately the author sometimes displays some arrogance in "dissing" other paths and movements. Which brings me to a modern metaphysical author like Stuart Wilde, who while not claiming to be a magician covers the same ground plus much more. And when I had finished the book, I came to the conclusion that one can achieve all you want by studying and applying the guidance of the old metaphysicians like Dr Joseph Murphy and Catherine Ponder, without having to bother with rituals and stuff. But "Condensed Chaos" is still an interesting read and I enjoyed the references to Robert Anton Wilson and Discordianism.
