Episode 004: The Hermit and the Logos

This time, I discuss my path into the esoteric tradition, the Hermit from the Major Arcana of the tarot, the Greek conception of the Logos, the polarities of subject/object and imagination/ego, and more.


  • The name of the angel on Dawson’s card is likely a copying error. It likely refers to the geomantic intelligence of Virgo, Hamaliel, but with a missed brush stroke on the letter Heh so the letter looks like a Resh and the word looks like Remliel.
  • There were two strange audio glitches: one when I said “rose up” when describing my out-of-body experience, which I badly corrected with spliced audio; and a second one when saying “unmanifested or virginal state” when reading from the Ciceros’ book.
