Kay’tee was born between 25th and 29th of March 2012. Naming ceremony took place on 2nd April 2012 in the morning after which she began her travel.
She was created for the The Egregore Project. She originated as Uneeda sailor troll doll I bought on ebay for my yellow-sun troll. When troll arrived it turned out to be much bigger than I expected. I decided not use it for its original purpose and kept it. The Kia egregore project inspired me to transform this troll into Kay’tee.
I decided to paint her gold and give her my personal accessories for hair- green plats made of hair extension, rings of hair ties and back of her head decorated with my hair pin. I also gave her my own earrings to wear and old runic talisman I used to wear in the past. I decided to paint her face and toe nails leaving the rest of the body to imagination and talents of other Kia members.
Below you can watch short video of this process and see Kay’tee setting off for her adventure as she’s being passed on to Trace.
Kay’tee was named so by Lionel on Monday morning before she set off to Essex in the UK. The idea came from shortening “KIA Troll” to KT.
My own impression of Kay’tee is that she loves parties, drugs, music and adventure. She likes starring at the night sky in search for flying saucers, visit the hidden corners of human conscious, plant seeds in our imagination, play innocent tricks on us and chill with a joint and exotic cocktail. She seems to be sociable and outgoing (at least as for a troll!). Being outspoken and brave she can handle Kia’s Public Relations in the spirit realm and aid creativity.
Kay’tee being a group egregore doll will travel and visit different Kia members who will help her grow and mature. I decided that she can only be passed on to someone else in person. This could happen during summer retreat or other unofficial Kia meetings.
In 2009 I gave the old KIA doll from the Norwich group a makeover. After being passed around the membership of the Norwich group she unanimously ended up in my care when the group dissolved. I had been working with her as my personal link to the group egregore for a number of years, but in 2009 began to feel that the look of the old doll no longer represented well what KIA had become.
Lolita Perdurabo and I began working together more closely on a magical level and felt it was time to give the doll a makeover. I began by giving her a new paint job, and Lolita contributed more gold paint patterns to the arms and legs, and more recently donated a bow to KIA for her to wear in her hair. For KIA’s 11th birthday Lolita also made her a new necklace from some sea shells.
When KIA officially launched in Feb 2001, magicians around the world took part in what we called the ‘birth rite‘, a ritual whose intent was to give birth to the KIA egregore, a group tulpa. In the city of Norwich, five magicians gathered and created a doll to house the local egregore for the Norwich KIA ‘temple’. This photo shows myself holding the doll we made on that night…
After the initial ritual further embellishments were added as members of the group took turns looking after the doll until she came to resemble the photo below:
Eventually the KIA Norwich group dissolved for various reasons as the various individuals involved went their separate ways.
On the original KIA website we had an innovative feature that allowed us to communicate with the KIA egregore. Each member submitted 5 sentences, quotes or stuff they made up and then each time you loaded the page, 5 of these were picked at random. I intend to make a similar feature again one day, but first I thought I’d make a record of the final messages left over from the original egregore, as recorded on archive.org.
2002-02-02 KIA says:There is no Way to Happiness. Free yourself from the chains of the liars in waiting. He points toward a sandstone “Laughing Buddha” effigy, which throbs and glows. Abandon all paths. Batteries not Included.
2003-03-11 KIA says: Gentle is the universe not it be. Smash the control images, smash the control machines. That’s no moon… oh, wait yeah it is. It is the mortal’s tragedy that he can never accept this. Time to wake up, now.
2004-02-02 KIA says: Party until sane and not a moment longer. Genealogical reasons. Everything is born out of Chaos. Om tare tuttare ture svaha. Remember to change your beliefs, and not simply accrue your favorites.
2004-06-06 KIA says:They gonna light my way. Must I be for ever solving the changing symbolism of the wretched morality-called ‘I’? Suck my Chakra, and I’ll suck yours! Everything is true, even the false things. Aummmmmmmmmm.
2004-08-10 KIA says: Good judgement comes from experience. Good judgement comes from experience. All these memories will be lost like tears in the rain, time to die Blade Runner. Die not to spare, but that the world may perish. God is Alive.
2004-10-15 KIA says: Nothing is true, everything is permissable. It’s for madmen only. Play like you don’t need to work, Work like you don’t need the money, Dance like no one is watching, and Love like you won’t get hurt. T’aint no sin to slip out your skin and dance about in your bones. Growth.
2004-12-10 KIA says: ‘You mustn’t say yes, you’ve got to say no,’ hissed the Head Torturer, nudging the suspect. Growth. Maximum Firepower. Ecstasy is in the flesh. There are no friends anywhere.
2005-02-04 KIA says: Seek the brothers of darkness. Everything is true, even the false things. Free yourself from the chains of the liars in waiting. Fuck you not. Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans.
2005-03-05 KIA says: Someone should teach cats physics, it would solve a lot of problems. My time coming, any day; don’t worry about me, no. We can’t stop here! Life is not a drug, but a drug can turn into life and you will then have lost the contrast between reality and illusion. Been so long I felt this way, I’m in no hurry, no.
2005-04-06 KIA says: Relax, nothing is under control. I am half a man. One is not a number; it only is denoted when in reference to a second. You were here for the ‘big bang’ and you – every part of you – is everlasting. That everything around you give you its utter attention, think only of you, care only for you.
2005-08-26 KIA says: On the contrary, though I remain no less sadly certain than in the past that sanity is a rather rare phenomenon, I am convinced that it can be achieved and would like to see more of it. How do you define real? It may just go where no ones been. We are making circles in the sand. Enchant long, But Don’t Hold Your Breath.
2005-11-10 KIA says: Every living organism is a vehicle for the life force. All Gods must die. Amicus? When I had released it, I knew it would come back to haunt me, just to let me know it was still there! Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the mind while awake?
2006-04-30 KIA says: There is no spoken truth that is not past-more wisely forgotten. Trust the Process. If you ask too many times, from the oracle, you abuse wisdom. There are no more tickets to the funeral. A man in a room where the door only opens inwards will remain trapped in this room until the time he thinks to pull.
2006-05-23 KIA says: That’s responsibility. To unify the the life force with will and desire to bend reality, is to cast Magick. The only clear view is from atop the mountain of your dead selves. The Mind In Fire is Mirror. A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war, wide-awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance.
2006-08-13 KIA says: I Will Devise New Heavens. Exterminate all Rational Thought. New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common. Thing. DOMANI CAPIREMO CI’O CHE ACCADE OGGI… (Tomorrow we’ll understand what’s happening today…
2008-07-23 KIA says: Rigidity can be good. Let’s make a deal… Reveal the Gardener, and Liberate the Gardens! Within the eye lies wisdom. What if there is no hell, or they don’t want us there?
