I was not sure if I should stay in a group for several months now. But I am stubborn and I have a hard time for letting things go and for closing doors behind me and never looking back. I was pushing further, forcing myself to move forward even when I was feeling bored, alone, unsafe. I thought I had to prove myself just because I was there for a whole year now. "If I give up now, I would have waisted my time", I thought. But then, after talking with a trust friend, they told me: "any person with self-respect would have left a long time ago." Then it hit me. I was putting myself second. I wasn't creating enough healthy boundaries. I was offering my friendship, my resources and personal information and receiving headache as a return. I wasn't feeling safe and appreciated. On the contrary, I was feeling judged. If a client or a friend came to me and told me what they were going through, I would say they were in a toxic environment and they should just leave. I was there because I was too proud to admit I needed to give up. So I looked myself in the mirror, as if I were my client or my friend, and I learnt the art of letting go. The art of giving up. The art of putting myself first. This was the most important lesson of the year.

The Specular System has 50 astral beings that work for the magician. It also has an astral city called Liran Van Garden. It has its own oracle called the "Speculari deck". The Specular System was influenced by the Forty Servants created by @Tommie Kelly. Glossary Note that this Glossary refers to our system. Other systems may have different explanations to each term. CHAOS - Primordial God / Goddess from which everything arose SET / LUCIFER - Conscious Chaos INTENT - intention, goal, objective, desire. MAGICK - act of changing reality according to the intention, consciously or not. MAGE - any practitioner of the occult arts, magician CHAOS MAGICK - meta-system created by Peter Carroll and other magicians in the 1970s CHAOS MAGICIAN - any practitioner of Chaos magick CURRENT 108 - philosophy of life within the Magic of Chaos whose objective is to achieve a future where the Solarpunk movement can be real, thus promoting human consciousness in union with environmental awareness. SPECULAR - Chaos magic system that follows Current 108 SPECULARI - 1. Any practitioner of the Specular system. 2. Any being created to be part of Specula. It can also be written by Speculare. SPECULA - astral egregore formed by Specularis LIRAN VAN GARDEN - astral city where the Nautas live NAUTA - any inhabitant of Liran Van Garden ANORIELA - Language spoken in Liran Van Garden. The Anoriela language is used for the construction of mantras, rituals and for religious moments. Every time a practitioner speaks a mantra aloud, they are speaking in Anoriela. CHADADEP - house where a Nauta lives ABHACCOOZ - brain or artificial intelligence of the house where a Nauta lives TRUE WILL - what the Magician decided would be his main objective before incarnating on Earth. What moves the magician. Their life purpose. The center of the will of their being. Do not confuse True Will with Intent. BEING - any creature that has magical properties and some level of sentience, whether in the astral shape of an object, animal, creature or something that resembles human features. QEJEKI - Sentient astral magickal objects are known, in the Speculari system, as Qejeki. The word Qejeki means "magical organism" in the Barbarian Uranian language, the language used by Chaos magicians. The Qejeki, in this context, function as Astral Servants, as they were created to serve the magician. However, unlike the others, they do not have a human or animal shape. They do have a level of consciousness and even personality, but their astral shape is that of an object or tool. An example of Qejeki in pop culture would be the hat from Harry Potter. A real example within our community is the SigmaCrown created by the magician and high priest Pierre Rinco. FEGAQIS - Fegaqis is similar to our smartphone, but it just doesn't evolve software like hardware and it can be malleable and change appearance according to Nauta's wishes. There is no need to change the Fegaqis. It never loses its battery, as it works with the moon's energy. SIGIL - representation of an intent or some magical being. This representation can be in pictorial, audible, tactile, olfactory or movement format, among others. MANTRA - sigil made of sound to evoke the being in moments of rituals SEAL - representation, usually pictorial, of some magickal being with a high conscience. Astral signature of deities, magicians or any practitioner of the magickal arts. ADIKA - Adika is like a sigil / seal only that it also works as a portal and represents an astral place, not a being. Adika can also be a spoken or musical mantra. SERVER - A being created with the function of serving one or more magicians with specific functions established in the contract. Every server has the right to be treated well, to vacation and remuneration. Astral servant. THOUGHT FORM - being created by the magician's conscience. TULPA - 1. to be created by the conscience of the magician who evolves to the point of losing control that escapes his main functions, which can cause disturbances and problems. 2. be deliberately created to cause harm to the unwary who do not know what they are dealing with. THIRD MIND - a being created spontaneously by two or more people who have strong intimate contact for some period of time. EGREGORE - set of all thoughts, feelings and beliefs of beings involved and united by a cause LISEN - means of transport that works both as a spaceship and as a submarine. That is, this transport sails from the depths of the oceans to the infinite and beyond.

I am a social media strategist and I always took care of my online persona. Most part of my income comes from my Facebook contacts and clients, so posting and creating for Facebook is part of my job. Some people don't get this, but building a social media presence is important if I want to pay rent and eat. Personally speaking, I had important information that I shared, photos of my relationships and stuff that I only posted there. I had the perfect personal profile on Facebook. Or so I thought. Full of friends and important contacts, awesome pictures with more than 100+ reactions in each of them. I created a bunch of groups about the occult. Seriously, I was always on Facebook, sometimes even in my sleep. Then it happened. I posted a political meme about the current situation in Brazil. It was a harmless meme, but too much for some people who enjoy living in a dictatorship. Oh, boy! First, Facebook deleted my meme, which was fine with me. I know how censorship works. But then, a few days later, they deleted my account. My favourite account! The one with all the important contacts and people in it! The one with a long history! I lost EVERYTHING that I shared with the GROUPS that I created. Clients are pissed because our conversation was gone! Facebook didn't give me a reason. Of course, I had backup. Of course, I had another account in case this happened. My fan page is still up. My new Facebook profile is starting now. But I cannot recover everything from my favourite account. I finally realise that I cannot rely on companies that never actually hired me. We obviously have a business relationship, but because we never signed a contract, they can just delete me from cyberspace for whatever reason. In this case, because of a meme. My revenge is to build my own platform. Is to start share. Is to focus more on Specula than on Facebook. Is to try a new path. I know I cannot compare myself with uncle Mark. Gods know I don't want to. But see, if I want freedom, I have to create it myself. Facebook harmed me and my business. But that just pushed me further. This is how I roll: if you want to destroy me, you must see me grow.

"Do do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law" and "nothing is true and everything is permitted" are two powerful concepts that sometimes are used to misguide people. All this began because of a simple sentence: “I am not your Babalon.” A Brazilian Thelemite wrote a text misogynist text about the "not your Babalon movement" saying that women should be enslaved -- if raping is the true will of the man. Or women should be raped if the magician wishes so. The Schopenhauerian juggling to defend the “freedom” to enslave, harm the other or rape the other is a philosophical fallacy, not a paradox. They are calling it freedom of speech. The Nietzschean will to power differentiates itself from the will to impose one’s force. There is an ethical question completely misrepresented in extolling freedom with one hand and restraint with the other. Freedom to restrain is not freedom, but the imposition of force. Force and Will are different concepts, not necessarily Thelemites concepts since various philosophers have already reflected on this. The philosopher is not obliged to agree a hundred per cent with anyone, dead or alive; they must question everything. I doubt very much that someday it will become possible to complete agree, after all, I disagree with myself. The sacredness of any kind of scripture does not interest me. “Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies”, Nietzsche once said. If the question is to make Thelema an absolute truth, then it does not interest me at all. Thelema is not the only paradigm, nor the most trustworthy, nor the most complete. The morphology of culture is constantly evolving, which does not mean, a priori, that this is a good thing. History has shown, on more than one occasion, that retrograde thinking can be easily replicated. It is, therefore, the retrograde thought of the imposition of the force of one group on the other that is inherently ethically questionable. The world does not revolve around Thelema as dogma or structure. The validation of positions that threaten the freedom of any group no longer fit in the contemporary. This world is the will to power — and nothing besides! And you yourselves are also this will to power — and nothing besides! — Friedrich Nietzsche, The Will to Power (posthumous) § 1067

Young people like young Greta Thunberg advocate for immediate change because they care about their future. Like us, children are also entitled to clean water, clean air and a future with healthy, organic food. We want a future with abundant resources and well distributed to all. When Jane Fonda was arrested several times for Fire Drill Fridays to speak about climate change, I found myself represented there. Jane Fonda is an actress who has always fought for various causes and uses her talent and fame for them. We see activists from all over the world putting themselves at the forefront of climate change, but it is really difficult to open the minds of those who think they are superior to nature and who are entitled to try to subdue it, which will ultimately prove impossible. We live in a large womb. Without it, life is not possible. We need to do our best to keep it alive. Indeed, human life will continue, but under what conditions of pain and deprivation if we continue to act as parasites? The control of Nature that we preach tirelessly will only prove useless and destructive to ourselves. We need to fight for a symbiosis relationship and not a parasitic relationship. After major burnings and disasters accelerated by the hands of humanity, by backward people who still want to profit from dirty energies, and today we have alternatives, we see a movement grow. Jane Fonda advocates for the Green New Deal, in which all nations must unite. We must migrate from dirty energies to clean energies, creating more worthy jobs and opportunities for growth rather than destruction. And in this movement we see another grow so strong: one that advocates for the rights of the Devil, that is, the rights of Nature: "Rights of Nature is the recognition and honouring that Nature has rights. It is the recognition that our ecosystems – including trees, oceans, animals, mountains – have rights just as human beings have rights. Rights of Nature is about balancing what is good for human beings against what is good for other species, what is good for the planet as a world. It is the holistic recognition that all life, all ecosystems on our planet are deeply intertwined. Rather than treating nature as property under the law, rights of nature acknowledge that nature in all its life forms has the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles. And we – the people – have the legal authority and responsibility to enforce these rights on behalf of ecosystems. The ecosystem itself can be named as the injured party, with its own legal standing rights, in cases alleging rights violations." https://therightsofnature.org/what-is-rights-of-nature/ As occultists, it is our job to ensure that the Rights of Nature are well heard, as the rights of the Native people.

We are a movement of occultists who love life. We believe Nature has the right to thrive, to regenerate, to prosper. We believe Nature has been treated as the other, the one who has been wronged and treated as a slave. This must end now. The philosopher Espinoza coined the concept of God Sive Natura, that is, that God is Nature, so both must be interconnected. We present the opposite concept. Diabolus Sive Natura, that is, the Devil is Nature. We believe in a future in which humanity learn from Nature and doesn’t transform her into their adversary. The Devil is the one who awakens us to our own hypocrisy and the problems we get into. While the biblical God regards human beings as superiors and says in Genesis 9: 2, “All the beasts of the earth will tremble with fear before you: the wild beasts, the birds of the sky, the creatures that move close to the ground. and the fish of the sea; they are delivered into your hands”, the Devil laughs and knows it's true. They will tremble not because we are superior, but because we do not understand the importance of life in symbiosis with Nature. And the favourite God of the majority is a reflection of this problem. When the Christian God in Genesis 1:28 says “have the fish of the sea, the flying creatures of the heavens, and every living creature that moves on the earth,” the Devil reminds us of the consequences of treating Nature as our own. property. While God says, "Grow and multiply," the Devil reminds us of how we should use sex for pleasure and not just for reproduction. We hear the green devil not because he came from a Christian tale, but because he preceded him. The Devil is the sum of all archetypes that the Christian God repudiates. And if the Christian God has failed to show us the importance of nature and diversity, then let the Devil fulfil this role. Our beliefs We believe in technomagick as a form of biomimesis. We believe hope followed by ethics shall lead us towards a better future. We believe in diversity; therefore, we advocate for human rights. We believe magick is not only what the Europeans toughed us, but something we should also learn from the Native communities. We believe in feminine power and red honey as the essence of life. The future needs a united voice and guidance. The “practise” of magick, unfortunately, has mainly become some sort of youth joke, memes, masturbation and pointless angry discussions on social media. We want a more serious approach. 2020 will prove to us that we need to have a focus as a community. We need to stick together if we want to survive challenges such as climate change. We need to spread our voices, our beliefs and make our statement. Not only for us as individuals but for future generations. They won’t forget our silence. We are a group of Art, Magic and Freedom. We believe that freedom will only really be met if we take into account the diversity of cultures, thoughts and practices. We follow the principles of freedom that do not violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights put forth earlier. We are a progressive group in favour of human rights. For everyone to be truly free, one must understand the other's process and know how to respect it. Wanting to subjugate and take away the freedom of the other by taking something by force is not synonymous with freedom, but social weakness, because the violent demonstrates that he cannot act diplomatically to get what he wants. The wise man, in whatever situation he is in, will use whatever diplomatic means he can, seeking the pen instead of the bullet, the smile instead of the mockery, the affection instead of contempt. But if your efforts are ridiculed or unnoticed, it is up to each person to choose the best course of action. Our Gols » To promote the Art, Magick and Freedom of all human beings without distinction; » To promote the financial and mental independence of all human beings; » To promote sustainability in relation to nature; » To promote the union of science and spirituality; » To promote healthy scepticism and critical thinking; » To promote the use of technomagick; » To create hypersigils that indicate our wills ;» To bring knowledge and debate to as many people as possible, but without proselytizing and using force.
