Can Anyone Read This?
    #683785 - 06/17/02 01:09 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Hiya folks... there seems to be a lot of talk on this forum re: channeling n such so I (in what will likely be yet another vain attempt in a years-long history of vain attempts) present this sample of so-called "channeled" text to the residents of this forum.

I say "so-called" because, though I myself am the "channel" (and have been for nearly 15 years and under varying conditions ie. sober, drunk, high, tranced etc) I can't seem to actually READ the damn stuff. If you'd like more detail I can provide but I'd rather not here for what I hope are obvious reasons.

Here is the sample:





oddly yours,

the Landotter

Reminds me of the sigils for spirits (including demons) that can be found in A.E. Waite's 'Book of Ceremonial Magic,' of course, it's kinda hard to see for certain.

Neither can I...I even tried using a tool to clear it up and enlarge it..no luck Sorry. Would love to check it out. I ,myself, have had some experience with automatic writings/channeling. Try to post a clearer/larger copy

Am not sure, but think that is an Old CCR (Credence Clearwater Revival) lyric. It goes something like "Ooh-be-doo be, oh, ooh-be-doo-be; doo-wah, doo-wah , doo-wah!"

The proof is in the pudding.

hi landotter
has you or anyone else analyzed your writings linguistically. as in scanned for regularly occurring words.
its one way at least to discover if it is decipherable, within the standard meaning of the word. if nothing occurs more than once...well as ren would say 'it's crazy talk'.
if you want to send me some i'm happy to take a look.
btw ever heard of the voynich manuscript?
a large book of so far indecipherable script that surfaced around the 15th century.

Ha ha! Thanks folks - some of that was funny!

Yeah, sorry bout the size - they limit you here to less than 100K. So here's a close up - hope this comes out better.



OK. So, yes actually, I have researched ceremonial magic and have been known to toss off a sigil or two, and I'm familiar with magical alphabets. Haven't found anything like this though. I agree about the "oriental" look of it. I've studied the Voynich Manuscript as well - thanks for bringing that up, Mr Crisper, makes me feel somewhat less odd - but no dice there.

As for examining it linguistically, yes, I've tried that - there are definite letter-forms here - 33 at last count, which doesn't allow for an easy substitution cipher, as you can imagine. I've shown it to university types but they are remarkably close-minded sometimes. Strangely enough, so is your garden-variety "psychic" - one fellow psychometrized a sheet of the writing and saw "a dark man in a turban crossing a desert" which is all v. Lovecraftian but made me rather suspect, understandably. Another person wondered aloud as to why my spirit guides didn't teach me how to read it. "Lady," I said "my spirit guides throw up their ectoplasmic hands when this stuff comes through!"

And it does come through. That's the definite feeling. It's not me - it comes from outside of me. I'm familiar with the feeling - I know when to pick up the pen, I know when transmission is about to start. I get a sense of "what" the writing is - a record, a history, in bits and pieces. But I've decided to not get excited about it till I can read it.

Great fun at parties though.

Everyone here seems fairly clear-headed and open-minded ... I must say it's refreshing! Thanks!

You may also want to check out a book called "The World Before". Its about the lost world of Atlantis. I'm not sure of the author, but he/she wrote the whole thing in the way you're describing (trance style from an outside influence). Only thing is that book is written in english.
Maybe do a search for the book and write the author a letter.
Your writing does look like it has some sort of form. I saw a few characters that repeated themselves.
Maybe its:
"mysterious scribblings....a secret code...no....Poems everybody! The laddy recons himself a poet!"

Yes, I have The Magus, and used it to create the crystal stand and table; the wand, and some other implements of the Art. Not, btw to practice, which I gave up about 1973, but to illustrate the difference between a Cermonial Magic/Wiccan Circle, and a Satanic altar [according to LeVey's 'bible'] to about 100 crisis intervention specialists in Miami, about a dozen years ago. I still collect books on Ceremonial Magic and regret the huge pile that I burned [how fascist!] when I went through my seminary phase. I had a hard-cover, out-of-print Crowley book with rituals in the back...ah, just as well. Anyway, I remember using' Wizard' brand barbeque lighter fluid to set it up in flames. Sorry for the ramble down memory lane.

Yeah, tried that. It's not that conscious a process though.

It is repetetive. There are a few words or word segments that are written over and over.
Something that looks like "Lint" keeps showing up. The one that looks like 'Ls|' or 'hil' is also a unit and appears several times. Also "v=" "V^" and "Uh" and "nN"...

So I can tell it's not totally random gibberish. It could possibly be decoded if there was more of it, I don't care enough to try.
