Chaotopia! Sorcery and Ecstasy in the Fifth Aeon
by Dave Lee




Overview -
'Once one is fairly competent at practical sorcery, there is little of importance that remains to be said or read about the subject; the magician at this point tends to emphasize inner development in his work. It seems to me that Chaos Magic itself has reached this point; the basic ideas needed for anyone to construct his or her own system of sorcery and to hone their skills are already covered by the available books. What has been lacking so far, is a Chaos magical approach to the investigation of the ecstatic states that underlie magical gnosis. This book, rather than trying to provide yet another slightly different flavour of Chaos technique, takes as its starting point the relationship between ecstasy and magic; between Chaos Magic and Chaos Mysticism, if you like.' from page 8 "Chaotopia is neither Utopia nor its opposite. It is what Austin Osman Spare called 'the chaos of the normal', seen through an illuminated eye, the eye of the sorcerer." Chaotopia includes updates and evaluations of techniques in Chaos Magick and an exploration of ecstatic states in relation to both magick and mysticism. Also chapters on: Wealth Magick/Conflict and Exorcism/Sex Magick/Body Alchemy and Healing/Magick and Physics/Chaos Illumination/Spirits/Aeonics 'A highly intelligent book by a leading Chaos Magician which will broaden and deepen Chaoist debate, theory and practice.' Peter J. Carroll
