'Once one in all fairness useful at functional sorcery, there's little of value that is still to be acknowledged or learn concerning the topic; the magician at this aspect has a tendency to stress internal improvement in his paintings. it sort of feels to me that Chaos Magic itself has reached this aspect; the elemental rules wanted for somebody to build his or her personal process of sorcery and to hone their abilities are already lined via the on hand books. What has been missing up to now, is a Chaos magical procedure to the research of the ecstatic states that underlie magical gnosis. This e-book, instead of attempting to offer yet one more somewhat diversified flavour of Chaos strategy, takes as its start line the connection among ecstasy and magic; among Chaos Magic and Chaos Mysticism, when you like.' from web page eight "Chaotopia! is neither Utopia nor its contrary. it really is what Austin Osman Spare known as 'the chaos of the normal', obvious via an illuminated eye, the attention of the sorcerer."

Laws in this sense are regulations which the subject prescribes for the objects. Yet one would expect that if we are to attain knowledge of the given then it must be derived, not from the subject, but from the object. e. the thought-form, on the basis of which the conformity to law of the phenomena becomes apparent. Seen in this light, it is obvious that one can say nothing a priori about the degree of certainty of a judgment attained through cognition. For certainty, too, can be derived only from the given.
Then thinking relates these separate entities to each other in accordance with the thought-forms it produces, and also determines the outcome of this relationship. When thinking restores a relationship between two separate sections of the world-content, it does not do so arbitrarily. Thinking waits for what comes to light of its own accord as the result of restoring the relationship. And it is this result alone which is knowledge of that particular section of the world content. If the latter were unable to express anything about itself through that particular relationship established by thinking, then this attempt made by thinking would fail, and one would have to try again.
But the fact that he believed that the a priori laws of pure science could be derived from the rules according to which this synthesis takes place, shows how little this inkling brought to his consciousness the essential task of thinking. He did not realize that this synthetic activity of thinking is only a preparation for discovering natural laws as such. Suppose, for example, that we detach one content, a, from the world-picture, and likewise another, b. If we are to gain knowledge of the law connecting a and b, then thinking must first relate a to b so that through this relationship the connection between them presents itself as given.
