hoodoo333xck18_eh1010

* On Hoodoo:

a form ( and trans-cultural phenomenon ) of predominantly
African-American traditional folk magic that developed from the
syncretism of a number of separate cultures and magical traditions.

Charles Eisenstein makes the case that we are living in an era of eerie supernatural corporatist gods, who have us under the spell of invisible and abstract forces, and we would add… a ‘Black Math’ :

” … [Various] culture’s notion of spirit is that of something separate and nonworldly, that yet can miraculously intervene in material affairs, and that even animates and directs them in some mysterious way. It is hugely ironic and hugely significant that the one thing on the planet most closely resembling the forgoing conception of the divine is money. It is an invisible, immortal force that surrounds and steers all things, omnipotent and limitless, an “invisible hand” that, it is said, makes the world go ’round.”

Would it then make sense to liberate ourselves from this psychic AND materialist violence with OTHER More tactical and community-positive based rituals ?!

Warning : ) XLterrestrials will perform + experiment w/ monetary occult practices !

Hoodoo itself is just such a re-appropriated hybrid remix phenomenon, similar to psycho-geographic collages such as Santeria, Candomblé, Macumba, and practices like Capoeira ( a form of dance, which was a disguised martial arts mixed w/ spiritual practices which were forbidden ). Even The Church of Corporate-Capitalism seems to be a mumbo-jumbo faith of multiple eurocentric origins now mixed with the ongoing hysterical Manifest Destiny of The Western Lands and Empire Endgames.

    Lucio Urtubia,

    …clearly, the restaurant is ‘Il Casolare’. But who took my photo there without my glasses on?
