So what's The Philosopher's Stone
all about then?


The Philosopher's Stone is a web site dedicated to information pertaining to the occult, paganism and associated interests. It is also hoped that the pages of The Philosopher's Stone will become the repository for information and resources of value or interest to pagans, occultists or anyone who just likes the look of the site. The intention is to promote interest in these subjects and encourage coherent and informed debate about occult and pagan issues.

A further aim of The Stone is to show that an interest in paganism need not be perceived as the weird and alarmist subject that it is often portrayed to be, and that the people interested in paganism are often very thoughtful, educated, informed and good to have as friends. That's not to say that such a fringe scene doesn't attract more than it's fair share of scary people, but then again so do many political parties!

The philosophy of The Stone is eclectic and reflects that of its creator. There will probably be a good deal of ritual magic balanced by a strong interest in what has become known as forteanism. (Is that a real word?) Part of that forteanism brings with it a degree of scepticism which seems to come in very handy in this field. All sorts of people come up with all sorts of nonsense, but if you can sort the wheat from the bullshit you can have an interesting time. Of course one can squash a few sacred cows along the way but what the hell. Of course it's appropriate to respect another's beliefs, but how many reincarnated Emperor Napoleons does one have to meet to learn some discrimination?

It is also hoped that The Stone will become a way for talented writers or artists interested in paganism and the occult to get their work out to an audience and have a chance of making some money for themselves in return for their efforts.

The only advice that the Editor can give is that I didn't get to be a magician by believing every loony theory dreamt up by some berk claiming to be yet another vehicle for the New Aeon, or who suggests that he is the True Prince of Darkness. To be a magician requires a certain amount of judgement, and wooly minded blind acceptance will get you nowhere.
