Condensed Chaos provides a practical introduction to Chaos Magic, one of the fastest growing areas of Western Occultism. Through it you can change your circumstances, live according to a developing sense of personal responsibility, effect change around you, and stop living as a helpless cog in some clockwork universe. All acts of personal/collective liberation are magical acts. Magic leads us into exhilaration and ecstasy; into insight and understanding; into changing ourselves and the world in which we participate. Through magic we may come to explore the possibilities of freedom.
Phil Hine's book is the most concise statement ... of the logic of modern magic. Magic, in the light of modern physics, quantum theory and probability theory is now approaching science. We hope that a result of this will be a synthesis so that science will become more magical and magic more scientific.
Phil Hine has produced a tour de force.
An excellent introduction to chaos magick, and magick in general.
I love Phil Hine. Condensed Chaos articulates some basic skills of doing magick, and discusses the universality of the tech involved. It provides a much needed critique of the problematic role of tradition as a yardstick in assessing the effectiveness of magick, and takes a slice at the messy issues of cultural context surrounding a lot of contemporary magickal practice. With the focus on the tech instead of the trivia, grades and ego production, Chaos Magick can be an excellent training ground for genuine magickal proficiency.
