I just found this site and decided that i had to sign up, but when I was looking at everything I didn't know where to start. Then i saw this introductions page and thought it might be as good a place as any.
I live in Oshawa, Canada about an hours drive from Toronto and I'm 18 years old. I've been reading on occult subjects for about 3 years now. Ranging anywhere from sacred geometry to paranomal to psychadelic to magick and mysticism (theres more but it would be too time consuming). I am a knowledge seeker and most of the knowledge falls in the category of occult. I was first introduced to occult ideas by my grandmother (wiccan) but i didnt really know anything about it, at school i was just able to say "my grandma's a witch". But the true initiator was the band Tool and their website writer Blair Mackenzie Blake. As a result of this I would very much like to know more about the Typhonian O.T.O. and sex magick, as well as any other helpful knowledge I can get my hands on. I just recently aquired Kenneth Grant's Outside the Circles of Time, so I haven't had a chance to read it yet. I would like to get a hold of his other books or at least some knowledge of it and this seemed like the perfect place. Another bonus (hopefully) is that I can probably get a little more help with magick ritual etc. from people who experience it, because so far i have only just started any sort of practice. You can't ask a book questions. Anyway I've rambled for long enough and if you have any comment on any subject I would me most grateful. Thank you.
