All of these kinds of interactions improve my Engagement Score which increases the number of people YouTube suggests these videos to. So interacting with the videos increases the number of people who get exposed to these ideas.

6: When ads begin to appear in the videos, click on some of them.

YouTube advertisers are well-vetted, so you should have no fear of being routed to some casino site that hijacks your browser. I’m pretty sure Macy’s isn’t interested in building a bot net. But I am interested in eating and click-through traffic on ads makes a HUGE difference. That being said, I also want to be perfectly clear… I am not asking you to click on ads fraudulently! I’m just saying that if an ad is shown that catches your attention or that is offering something you may legitimately want, don’t hesitate to click it just because you don’t like ads. It’s those ads that make it possible for me to do my work!

Current Project

  • Develop a series of videos – targeting people unfamiliar with scientific illuminism – that present a reliable and rational introduction to occult studies in a manner that is both relatable and pragmatic.
  • These videos will guide the viewer through the process of understanding the context of classical occult teaching as well as how to develop their own personal cosmology.
  • Lastly, the scope of the videos is intended to take the viewer through everything they need to know and do to self-initiate to a grade equivalent to the Adeptus Minor in G.’.D.’. or A.’.A.’. though this may not be stated in such technical terminology.

Future Projects Under Consideration

  • Develop a set of companion videos that guide the viewer through the active work of ceremonial magical practice.
  • Conduct interviews with respected leaders in the occult community.
  • Host live Q&A with the audience.
  • A book will probably be published eventually which would serve as a companion guide to the video series.
  • If there is enough interest from the general public, we may organize web-based, instructor led classes in specific technical areas.
  • If there is sufficient interest, we may establish a clergy and perform various rites for the public (e.g. marriage, funeral, baptism, etc). We also may provide individual tutoring services for helping people to achieve specific goals. Note, however, that we will never establish a “mystery school” or require people to submit to a hierarchical power structure of any kind.
  • If we are fortunate enough to receive considerable contributions, then we would most likely establish a monastery for occult monks who would spend their time in study and creating more niche videos.


  • Many thanks to our web hosting sponsor, InterServer, for offering free WordPress hosting with top-notch customer service and support on their best-in-class network. It takes a community to make an organization such as this possible and we appreciate everyone who has contributed to making this dream a reality. Thank you!
