'As if' and Ecstacy, Logomachy Four

This continues an ongoing investigation of A. O. Spare's Logomachy of Zos. A copy of the work can be found at the Hermetic Library here. Check it out. In general I have been selecting epigrams which seem particularly important or interesting. In many cases I select ones that build on insights considered previously.

 (Below are the beginnings of a study of Spare's Logomachy of Zos I worked on rather a while ago. I will be revisiting it here from time to time and extending the study of the book itself as well.)

Dog Days, Sirius and Vega

HRUMACHIS (Medium -Pen, blood.) (c) 2001 Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule

The Dog Days have always been a time of heavy occult work for me. It may be that I am partially inspired by Robert Anton Wilson in this, since he spent years receiving unusual occult teachings and experiences during the Dog Days. Check out a sampling of Wilson's writings on the Dog Days and the star Sirius, as well as texts he found useful on the subject, here. I have chosen these, the Dog Days of 2013, to begin this blog.
