Are all the 'occult' texts just nonsense? Is the Kabbalah legit?

Edward Leedskalnin, the man who single-handedly created Coral Castle claimed he knew how to use magnetic fields to levitate anything, including some of the 23 tonne blocks of limestone that make up his Coral Castle park.

His books about electromagnetism are thought to be encoded with secrets and some books will decode other books. It's worth exploring if you're interested in that kind of thing. Apparently some of the technical diagrams are only complete when combined from partial diagrams contained in different books.

Coast to Coast AM did some interesting shows about Edward Leedskalnin.

The study of thoughtforms / tulpas is a fascinating concept in Buddhist texts.

The Philip Experiment was a study of tulpas conducted by the Toronto parapsychological research society in 1972 that attempted to manufacture a "ghost". It claimed to have documented startling results.

There are plenty of YouTube videos on tulpas and the Philip Experiment if you're curious.

Manly P Hall is a great source. Same with Mark Passio. Not sure how much you know and do not know.

The Bible is also a great source if you can sort through the bullshit. There is enmity between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. The parable of the wheat and the tares is also a must-know.

I agree - Mark Passio is interesting character.

Jordan Peterson does an excellent break-down of the Genesis chapter of the Bible (first chapter of it) which really does a nice job of teasing apart the different archetypes contained within it. He approaches it more as an academic than preacher and I thought it really gave me a good sense of why those stories are so richly layered. Think about it though it's the oldest book of the bible so pretty much comes down from generations of oral tradition, so the stories have been stacked with multiple meanings. Worth giving his lecture series a listen it's on YT still I think.

Franz Bardon.

Julius Evola.

René Guenon.

Those 3 are legit

Kabbalah is legit too, but you need a lot of prior study to benefit from it, although the core ideas are gottable in plain english too. At the very least it will make the occult look plain to you.

Franz Bardon was the first that came to my mind.

Recommend the book, Initiation into Hermetics.

Read the Ribhu Gita, or the Astavakra Gita.

Also consider the Tibetan book of Living and Dying.

Check out the book linked near the bottom, it plus the documentary is enough to get started with the absolute base level. Do not attempt to break the taboos, they exist for good reason:

fam, that's been debunked for over a decade. Tis but a simple carnival trick.

I was inquiring about real knowledge, preferably one with practical usage.

Rofl, stick with the Talmud and the zohar if you like, rabbi
