Gordon White, Pieces of Eight: Part 2, Aleister Crowley, Opposite Day |333| by Alex Tsakiris | Nov 9 | Spirituality Share Tweet Email Gordon White wrestles looks at morality from a Magical perspective. photo by: Skeptiko Gordon White’s new book Pieces of Eight: Chaos Magic Essays and Enchantments stirred up a lot of questions that I posed in part 1; now here are the answers: Alex Tsakiris: …for example, the evidence from the near death experience science that I’m so fond of because it gives us a pretty clean set of data to look at… I hear love and light being what it’s really about. I hear it being moralistic, and being hierarchical, and that materialism, even spiritual materialism of trying to get something out of an enchantment or a spell is really, at the very least, treading water. It’s not moving you towards this spiritual growth that ultimately it is what it’s all about. What do you make of that as a general idea? Gordon White: I think I know exactly what you mean… the question is philosophical in the human sense, which is, is morality an objective category of the universe like spin or something in physics? …Is morality an inherent category in the universe? And as a result, should that shape your actions in this life? Probably… but it’s an eternal question.
