Far too many only scratch the surface of the capabilities of chaos magick, from my perspective. Since we now live most of our lives online, the communities have moved there as well. This has led to an absurd rise of “armchair chaotes.”
Now, please don’t misunderstand me. I’m not trying to be elitist. However, many people don’t get past the initial diet Discordian flavors of acting an ass and jerking off to sigils.
That being said, any fucking moron can do chaos magick adequately if they only give a modicum of effort, and this is a good thing.
Far too often though, I’ve seen good people get swept up into their ever-changing public facing masks only to find themselves lost. Next thing you know, you never hear from that person again.
Who knows if they’re dead or alive? I’ve seen, often, those who burn brightest go out like they never existed.
To me, this would suggest that one should take a balanced path in working with the esoteric and metaphysical concepts we manipulate daily. It can’t always be fuck-fuck games.
