Surely we can find a better human failing to fetishize than Reason.
The purr of the world in my arms, the warm and the fur on my skin.
To bless or curse with power friends or enemies to do good or evil.
To converse with spirits.
To find hidden treasures in ancient ruins.
To conjure the spirits of priests who died leaving treasures.
To understand the voice of the wind.
To change water into wine.
To divine with cards.
To know the secrets of the hand.
To cure diseases.
To make those who are ugly beautiful.
To tame wild beasts.

I create what I destroy.
My speech is ashes and my words are blood.
O thrice and four times happy, the man who attains this (almost copulative) point in the Ternary: http://t.co/0EAdBvG2S8
O Omnipotent Divine Majesty, how we Mortals are constrained to confess what great Wisdom and what ineffable mysteries reside in the Law which Thou hast made! Through all these points and these letters the most sublime secrets, and terrestrial arcane mysteries, as well as the multiple revelations of this unique point, now placed in the Light and examined by me, can be faithfully demonstrated and explained. This point is not superfluous within the Divine Trinity, yet when considered, on the other hand, within the Kingdom of the four Elements it is black, therefore corruptible and watery. O thrice and four times happy, the man who attains this (almost copulative) point in the Ternary, and rejects and removes that sombre and superfluous part of the Quaternary, the source of vague shadows. Thus after some effort we obtain the white vestments brilliant as the snow.

An undercurrent of transformation in my thoughts and powers as strong as a riptide – all I need endeavor is swim out too far to be saved.
