From Greek Chronos and Hindu MahaKala to the feminine mysteries of Fate - from the Moirae to the Hoerae - this mythic HirStory (a union of history and herstory) explores the far reaches of time & its warp in the Web of Wyrd.
Whereas Hawking's Brief History of Time is a scientific apprehension of the subject, this tome follows Time's spiralling course through art, verse and magic, bringing us to the eternal present then offering ways to carry the ideas presented into the future through personal application :- practical ritual frameworks for using web mandalas to map time onto a spatial plane and explore different potentialities of our mutable destiny.
Included is the Arachnean Grimoire 'The Book of the Spider' and commentary.
The Author: Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule is a ChaOrder Magickian and Baphometic avatar somewhat obsessed with physical reification and Manifestation. While s/he does enjoy shamanic and astral journeys via occasional extreme entheogens and other deep trance work, s/he is not content to just travel to other dimensions, rather intent upon bringing back aspects thereof to the physical plane.
S/he is thus constantly reburbishing hir Temple, that is the physical form seen as a malleable tool: Physical mutations as magical acts (chakra piercing and weaving, Tattoo Tarot Tantra), Visual Art (drawing, painting, photography, video, sculpture), Esoterotica, Ritual Music (violin, voice) & Performancy, Dance; and Installation/Environment Sculpting.
