Operation Hail Eris! and Festival 23

We learned through our channels that on 23 July 2016 somewhere in the north of England Discordian Popes will gather for a weekend of ritual and mischief. They describe it as:

An interactive celebration of literature and the arts; of theatre, playshops and music inspired by the Discordian movement; a society of philosophers, theologians, magicians, scientists, artists, clowns and similar maniacs who are intrigued with Eris, Goddess of Confusion, and with her doings.

We think it will be advantageous for Kia Agents to attend either covertly or openly. We might gather some useful intel about their operations. Perhaps this will allow us to coordinate our actions, recruit new agents and further infiltrate their collective. It will be a great opportunity for our agents to meet in person and socialize too.

If you would like to volunteer for this mission visit the KIA forum to discuss the details.

You can find more about the event on  Festival 23 website.

KT The Gathering

It’s been a few months now since I became the current custodian of KT, before her arrival ‘A Temple’ was prepared, this was formerly the family living room which had become somewhat boring and in need of new life anyway, so the space was devoted to KT. An Altar was made with offerings of perfumes, flowers, drums, rattles, and all manner of stuff which i felt KT may like and then the entire place was left to sit for three days and nights. Why Bother ? some may ask. Respect was the first intention, others before me had put a great deal of effort into KT and her birth so it seemed fitting to continue that effort but then i eventually met her. A small Golden troll with a large smiley face and an obvious love for getting things done.

Throughout her stay KT began to draw in the like minded, the first a Witch in America, who quickly joined us among the ranks of Xaos. Then the temple opened its doors to members and took on the name HKN, which consisted of newcomers to Chaos Magick. The cycle continued and KT began to meet more and more people until we eventually ended up at a Pagan Wedding where she took her place upon the Altar. I introduced the High Priestess to KT and explained who she was and where she was from. KT had in fact lead me to not one Witch but three ladies who all worked together, a happy bunch indeed and all rather talented. We drank until dawn, laughed much and before i knew it was making plans for a workshop whereby KT was going to be accompanied by more Dolls and Trolls created by this new group. In the next breath we were offered nine acres of land by a Shaman in Lincolnshire from which we could do the work outdoors among Nature. This may not have been so much by chance as KT and I had indulged in Trance, Dance, Shamanic Healing with my Clients and students. However, it was space i certainly needed and the Shaman wanted me to work the land with him in ceremonies and rites.

Now this being my first deliberate experience of working with an Egregore meant i was on new ground to begin with but KT was certainly making a difference to my world and sending it in the right direction to achieve personal and group goals. I also began to meet with and become involved among the KIA Community. Something I greatly enjoyed and found most useful. So the work continued, pushing the personal boundaries further until a magazine was created and launched with a Z Cluster member on board, the American Witch, some KIA Agents and old friends. The project took off and left most of us standing, with the first issue months ahead of our proposed launch. We had a string of female occultists / witches who all wanted to be on the front cover, some in very little clothing at all and a stream of articles and ideas. Again i had asked KT to assist with this and as always she delivered, in return she was placed in a huge box of chocolates, drinks and flowers to feed upon.

Everywhere i took KT she seemed to find new friends but our work was spinning fast around the eight colors of Magick. Starting with sex magick and works of passion, we quickly moved to red magick and attacks on those who wished to rule by avarice and indoctrinated ideaologies. During the wealth magick stage i gained a greater income and job offer while the thought magick aspect brought myself and a knowledgeable person from Z Cluster together. This all spun into a weird mash up of media magick and then i asked KT the most daunting question, “Can you show me the Black Spear?” This brought on an instant bout of depression, grief and a whole bunch of other shit i was not expecting but as soon as i relaised what was occurring, my Z Cluster Buddy introduced me to a Voodoo Priestess who specialised in Necromantic Rites and was highly skilled in all of the old African Arts. Ifa, Voodoo, Hoodoo, Palo etc.

This opened a new chapter in my life, the worship of my own ancestors, working with the dead, and now im at the stage of a serious study of Santa Muerte, the healer of deep seated grief. No wonder i felt so shit ! but having been involved in shamanism for some years, i knew to accept not fight such feelings.

On the Green front, the American Witch and I fell in love despite the Atlantic Ocean and somehow we seemed to be able to work despite the distance. We laid some plans to meet but as yet they have to wait, we suffered a little, dealt with the usual pains of love and just kept each other going via messages and astral work. When i look at KT and her influences in my personal sphere, she certainly delivered, working it all out for me so all i had to do was the work itself. Amazing little troll who i shall always adore and can never repay.

The Swiss Army Knife of Magick ! Xaos

Many newcomers to the chaosphere ask where should i begin or what should i do ? which i guess is a natural progression away from the paths of indoctrinated thinking with a healthy dose of concern. The usual try some sigil magick seems to sit well but i personally opted for a different approach, to use the Media as a tool and weapon against ‘The Media.’ Why not ? after all we are manipulated on a daily basis by TV, Radio broadcasts and a whole host of other stuff which we may not fully see or even hear yet such things seem to affect our emotions. After several friends showed their repulsion towards Religious based beheading and other atrocities being spawned by the media I wanted a means to fight back, to create change and offer up an alternative world view. By coincidence it was at this time i happened to meet a few faces from KIA.

The first aspect of Xaos i adopted was Digital Art and learning how to manipulate images by layering one on another and keep going until i had a complete new image from the existing. After a few sad attempts i realized that such a notion required a little visionary input from myself and so it was. The next step was to remove all aspects of self importance, Ego based ownership of what i was creating, the overcoming of self centered pride and the insecurity that someone may nick my work ! I asked myself what the hell was wrong with me and why i had i lost the ability to just be open and share in my creations. To circumnavigate this proved easy, just throw out an add on social media offering to work for free on the behalf of others and so it began.

Within weeks i was having to refuse any more requests as i was so busy and my time was being consumed for no pay but it no longer mattered. I was having fun, bringing a little joy to the life of others and gaining some valuable experience. This later lead to a KIA Agent placing some fascinating art before me and me being somewhat cheeky and asking “Hey can i play with this one.” The agent to my surprise replied “Sure.” This gave me a wonderful lift as i was now in a small collaboration to work with another artist. So where is all the Xaos in this you may ask ? maybe there is none as that i cannot honestly answer, my mind was in some weird state of overdrive and a myriad of messages were flying about the place between myself and other Magickal Practitioners. In short the whole nine yards was hectic, Chaotic and somewhat rather disorganized on my part yet it worked and damn well, so i kept rolling with the ideas and trying weirder ideas within my art. Sleepless nights and endless days produced some imagery i was happy with as were those i was working for, until the day i came to acknowledge i had a flair of my own which seemingly appeared out of nowhere. It was at this point i approached Anton about starting a KIA Node, something i had no experience in whatsoever. Between three or four Agents I gained a mass of wisdom and guidance which carried the whole project forward, after a couple of weeks KT arrived. Now i could be imagining this but it all seemed to stem from Art. From a desire to attack the system at a personal level simply because it felt right to do so, not just for myself but for others too.

Within a month or two, the entire operation was established with mentors, friends and fellow agents helping me to push through some limited growth of my own and expand beyond my usual hemisphere. I remember describing the experience as being in close proximity to ‘a gay person coming out of the closet,’ by that i mean it takes guts to show ones colors to a stagnant society which in all honesty hates the likes of KIA Agents but it did not matter. I was not alone, I was not branded as stupid but did pick up the odd comment about being mad or weird. One day someone replied to one of my comments with “o you know how nuts that sounds ?” to which i quickly replied, “It only sounds nuts due to your own lack of self education, your own shallow perception of something you have yet to grasp let alone try to understand.” What my friend was seeing may have been a mere fractal of something far greater but either way we laughed about the whole issue, I then sent her to Agent Anton for a quick walk through about Egregores and their benefit, especially one named KT. So from a small moment of anger, a fleeting glimpse of change and a desire to know brought about an entirely new aspect of working magick.

 

“Where do I begin, how should i get started?” my reply. “Art, Thee Art Ov Chaos.” which later became my own brand of the same.KT banks logo_Fotor

Tarot reading on future of KIA

For this reading, performed on Tuesday 2nd June, Dana and I employed the ‘think I should do’ tarot spread and used the Medieval Scapini Deck. This was a deck we purchased after seeing it appear in a Daisy Chainsaw video some years back. We performed this reading with the intent of sharing it as an example of how useful this otherwise humorous spread can be.

So for the cards we decided they meant:

  1. What the KIA egregore thinks it should do.
  2. What Dana and I think KIA should do.
  3. What KIA will probably do.
  4. What KIA should actually do.

Reading left to right, top to bottom the cards were then chosen as follows:

tarot-on-future-of-kia-201506

  1. II The Popess
  2. VIIII The Hermit
  3. 9 of Cups
  4. X Wheel of Fortune

1. The egregore wants us to be less emotional, in order to create a more detached learning environment. Teachers motivated by justice.

2. We are not far off what the egregore wants with our own intentions, but we have a tendency to desire more solitude and secrecy. In comparison the egregore would want us to be more forthcoming in sharing and utilising our knowledge and experience.

3. We are none-the-less headed for victory.

4. So we should leave things to fate.

Other notes on this reading include noticing that Dana and I have had a tendency towards ‘male’ magical archetypes and systems, whilst the egregore wants more feminine.

What can you say when there’s not much left to say?

I’ve been quiet on this group for a while because my life was so full of other things to do and although Magic played a vital part in makng personal progress in my life after certain events had made my life pretty annoying.

To me it is like I have reached a state where I am just sovereign in a few magical techniques which I can use in a variety of ways and in endless combinations with ritual material of various kinds. Having taken the experimental approach I originally associated with Chaos Magic was the starting point and the best approach I could have taken. It figures in Magic it’s what you do that counts and not the dogma you buy in to.

I am showing up here once more because I plainly missed KIA of which most members were the kind of Occultist with a sense of freedom we usually all seemed to share here, a sense of humour and plain common sense in the end despite all the weirdness that’s shared here who were the best companions I could have on my way.

I’ve neither reached omnipotence nor perfection nor liberation of any ouside influence which might be unpleasant. But by now I’ve got magic for all that I could need or want.

In the end my main approach has become the most simple although I use relative techniques every now and then for certain purposes. Meditation is the summum bonum of all techniques. I have noticed that meditation without an intent is in itself a form of magic having the power to transform your life to the better and make anything fall into place as good as possible in your individual life.

Another thing I have learned is that even in a field where your magic never worked you can make it work if you stick to it long enough and try to adjust your approach. I know a great magical healer who could hardly ever gain wealth. For some it seems a part of their life is cursed and never reacts properly to their magic. To me money was the same problem. But a long search for techniques and many repetitions of workings are finally bringing growing results in this field.

If there are youngsters around I am willing to give advice if needed. And I am 35 now and grew up chronically ill and desperate and an outsider as a teenager. But I got happy and well. Youngsters, with time, and that is needed, magic can basically get you anything you want, for sure. It’s common sense that chances can be missed which will be lost. And for some reason it seems to be an imperfect world and thus it seems perfection can hardly be achieved and you can’t guarantee that you can keep all you gained forever. But I have seen things happen I doubted would be possible when I was young. And happy is an easy thing to be in the end.

Return of KIA Speaks

When performing the ‘summoning storm’ operation recently I had a surprise apparition of the KIA Egregore who requested I restore her KIA Speaks program. Last night I got this restored, at least in a basic form.

Originally each member of KIA had to submit some number of sentences to the KIA Egregore, I think perhaps three, before they were admitted into KIA. The KIA Speaks program would then select five of these at random to create a unique paragraph. This served as a kind of divination tool for contact with the Egregore, available to all members and even non-members who clicked on the page.

This new version does not require all agents submit sentences, but each agent may contribute sentences to the egregore as they please. To do so, please visit the KIA Speaks source quotes page and leave a comment with a single sentence. (Multi sentence comments will be deleted). Ideas for comments include:

  • Something you thought of yourself, maybe a personal catch-phrase.
  • A favourite line from a book, comic, film, essay, blog post or poem.
  • Take a book you like and pick a page at random, then select a sentence from that page, maybe also at random.
  • A line from the KIA litany.
  • The motto of a group or organisation you feel aligned to.

But really your imagination is the limit here. Lets get as many quotes into KIA Speaks as possible!

To start her off again, I selected 73 sentences from the old KIA Speaks, those preserved for all time by the Internet Archive. But these will soon get repetitive if we don’t expand her collection.

Finally, you probably want to try out listening to what she has to say. You can do so on the KIA Speaks page. This looks a bit rough at the minute, but I’ll slowly improve it as I add more features.

KIA Speaks source quotes

This is not a normal blog post. No discussion happens in the comments of this post. Instead it is used for the source quotes for the KIA Speaks feature.

To submit a sentence to the egregore, post it as a comment in reply to this blog post. Comments with more than one sentence will be rejected and deleted. Single sentences will be approved.

You are also invited to rate sentences. In this way a more advanced future version of the KIA Speaks software may give preference to sentences that resonate with multiple agents of the egregore.

Deciphering the KIA Egregore Ouija messages

On Friday the 18th of October 2013, five KIA Agents assembled together to contact the KIA Egregore using Ouija board with English Qabala Cypher written across it. Last Friday myself and @anton finished interpreting/decoding the first two answers. The process was a lengthy one but from the start the results obtained captured our imagination and motivated us to carry on. I decoded large part of this when @anton was at work but a lot of it was done by both of us.

First thing we did was to feed the letter sequences given to us during the ouija play into enigmagick program which gave us the triangle of numbers. Then we looked up corresponding phrases in Liber Al and try constructing meaningful answers from it. This turned out fairly easy with the first question. Below you can see the exact results obtained.

Q1. Do you have any questions for us?

WVQZ LR

40 14

54

First Veil: 54: who cry?

Second Veil: 40 14 cry who?

We selected phrases that are meaningful answers, of which we felt ‘who cry?’ was the only one in the First Veil. Of the possible results this was the only one that took the form of a question. Then we did the same for the Second Veil. The list of results is given below so you can understand the process.

40: shed, ye, have, sake, woes, is so, by all, gross, hair, hour, as she, at an, also of, or on, a joy a, cry, of all Ah! Ah!, MOR, hardly, as a sword, altar, host,

14: shall, who, how

54: who cry?

We chose words and phrases for 40 followed by 14 assuming that this is the order given to us by KIA Egregore. We then looked if any of the combinations make sense to us. We achieved a repeated result of inverted structure to the Fist Veil result. Cry Who? To double check our result you can type the numbers or letter sequences to enigmagick, or follow the numbered links above.

In the ouija board rite this letter sequence was directly followed by planchette moving onto ‘NO’. Our interpretation of this message is that KIA Egregore asks ‘who is asking?’ and says they have no further questions. This result is amusing and striking in that we forgot to introduce ourselves to KIA when saying hello.

We used the exact the same method to decode the second question. It was a more complex process as the letter sequence was in 3 parts resulting in Three Veils instead of Two.

Q2. What is the message of KIA?

NZ VONCHRHPLPN JGTSNOX

22 132 99

154 231

253

First Veil: 253

Second Veil: 154 231

Third Veil: 22 132 99

The interpretation of these veils produced a long poetic text we intuitively arranged to form the KIA Litany.

KIA Egregore group sigil charging.

On Sunday evening, towards the close of the retreat weekend, we started creating a mass sigil, to be charged by the KIA egregore. As preparation I had created a pencil outline of a kind of KIA logo that combines elements of current, previous and possible future KIA logos. These elements include a shatkona, a vesica pisces containing an eye, Austin Spares glyph for Kia, and Michael Moorcock’s sigil of chaos. I did so on a large A2 sized sheet of cartridge paper which I taped to a wooden board. I provided black, red, blue and green marker pens of two different thicknesses for agents to draw their sigils.

DSCF9065

I had invited those not able to attend to submit sigils online, in a post on Crowleymas, (Oct 12th). I made sure that external submissions were included in the final design.  As we sat and talked, we took turns adding to the sigil, each of us making several visits and adding more each time. As we went to bed on Sunday night, the sigil remained unfinished, so we left out and continued on Monday morning over a casual breakfast.

This was the result:

kia-egregore-sigil

You can help charge it using whatever method of sigil charging suits you. Probably staring at it for a short while will do the trick…
