Note to all members
We are currently preparing to change the setup of this forum to focus more on imaginative & creative gnosticism, because we feel we should distance ourselves from the way thegodabovegod.com is increasingly aligning itself with conspiracy thinking.
We respect Miguel's choice of course, but that does not mean that we agree with it. We feel that conspiracy thinking is contrary to gnosis. It's simply not where we want to go.

If anyone is interested to continue a forum affiliated to thegodabovegod.com I am willing to help. Maybe you could start using the relevant part of this forum as a basis. Please contact me (Lúthien) if you are interested.

We've not yet fully decided on how to proceed; but I think that we should in any case cut the link with thegodabovegod.com (including the page there that links to the forum). We will also re-structure the forum, and put the old Ilsaluntë Valion board that focuses on Tolkienian gnosis up front again.
I will update this message as soon as there is something new to say.

Frank Herbert and Ursula K LeGuin are the first two authors that come to mind as having 'created worlds' as deep and "real seeming" as Tolkien d...

Re: Poetry Black Poetry White

I see nobody has posted anything on this thread in quite a while, but just wanted to throw in the idea of "flying ointments". Apparently there was a tradition practiced among European witches of taking strong hallucinogenic plants...mostly nightshades such as henbane, mandrake, and belladonna, and m...

Re: There is no easy way to tell it, but there's something you need to know...

Most of the folks I'm referring to are online friends, but a few are in real life, some as prosaic and matter-of-fact as my dad and my wife! The experiences run the gamut....from UFO's to seeing strange creatures or entities (including at least one "thunderbird"...a Native American word for a huge e...

New member here and just adventuring in and wow! awesome! I hope I can get let in to see the other forums referenced above (FAQ about the "otherkin") as well. Though nothing out of the ordinary has happened to me, except a flash of insight or a synchronicity now and then, I tend to collect friends w...
