Yes, I was trying to figure out why you would be petty enough to correct grammar and derail an interesting thread.

I'm assuming it's because you don't understand why Nietzsche used that name.

He wrote a story.

Many have done so using various historical characters to make their point. Some have even made such characters up.

Does it matter which is which? It's a story. Plato did it. Shakespeare was very good at it as well.

The point is that they challenge you, they don't feed you.

Since we've probably established that you haven't read Thus spoke Zarathustra or the Gathas...

Have you read Pimp?

No. I haven't read the Necromicon either.

Have you read Julius Caesar? Do you think it has any relevancy to today? Does it speak to mob psychology? Is there anything about human nature in it? You, know, something practical?

I actually have, but that's the Giger one.
It's all pictures so it's an easy read.

You were probably referencing the Necronomicon.

Can we agree that we both haven't read that and call it a day?

Edit to add...
Hmmm, I'm totally wrong there!!!
They're all called Necronomicon, and Necromicon isn't a thing.

I spake badly.

As a Christian this can be a sticky subject....however I do believe that thoughts, emotions, words, and intentions can have an actual effect on what we perceive as reality....well, I say "believe" but really it's something I experience as a regular part of life.

As a Christian it must be in conjunction with continual communion with God....basically constantly looking to God and asking "Is this okay?"

Does He answer? Or do you?

Some good reads in this thread.

Here's a couple enjoy and keep coming back to over and over again:

Three Books of Occult Philosophy by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa ((Llewellyn's Sourcebook)

Had this book for years. Agrippa provides a wealth of philosophical commentary on just about everything occult. Great reference book into the mind of occult thought, he shares insights into a little bit of everything.

How to do all things: Your use of divine power by Mark Age

This is a short little text summarizing some occult principles and how to apply them. It's brief and to the point, it's one of the more practical books I've found when it comes to exploring this line of thought. I don't think it's in print anymore, I stumbled across a copy while used book hunting.


There is a scary poem about Cornelius Agrippa, Evil Cackle, but i like The Book of the Dead:-


Cornelius Agrippa went out one day;
His Study he lock'd ere he went away,
And he gave the key of the door to his wife,
And charged her to keep it lock'd on her life.

"And if any one ask my Study to see,
I charge you to trust them not with the key;
Whoever may beg, and entreat, and implore,
On your life let nobody enter that door."

There lived a young man in the house, who in vain
Access to that Study had sought to obtain;
And he begg'd and pray'd the books to see,
Till the foolish woman gave him the key.

On the Study-table a book there lay,
Which Agrippa himself had been reading that day;
The letters were written with blood therein,
And the leaves were made of dead men's skin;--

And these horrible leaves of magic between
Were the ugliest pictures that ever were seen,
The likeness of things too foul to behold,
That what they were is not fit to be told.

The young man he began to read
He knew not what; but he would proceed,
When there was heard a sound at the door
Which, as he read on, grew more and more.

And more and more the knocking grew;
The young man knew not what to do;
But, trembling, in fear he sat within,
Till the door was broke, and the Devil came in.

Two hideous horns on his head he had got,
Like iron heated nine times red-hot;
The breath of his nostrils was brimstone blue,
And his tail like a fiery serpent grew.

"What wouldst thou with me?" the Wicked One cried,
But not a word the young man replied;
Every hair on his head was standing upright,
And his limbs like a palsy shook with affright.

"What wouldst thou with me?" cried the Author of ill;
But the wretched young man was silent still;
Not a word had his lips the power to say,
And his marrow seem'd to be melting away.

"What wouldst thou with me?" the third time he cries,
And a flash of lightning came from his eyes,
And he lifted his griffin claw in the air,
And the young man had not strength for a prayer.

His eyes red fire and fury dart
As out he tore the young man's heart;
He grinn'd a horrible grin at his prey;
And in a clap of thunder vanish'd away.

THE MORAL
Henceforth let all young men take heed
How in a Conjurer's books they read.

I also like the Picatrix:-
