Media Astra Ac Terra Episode 1 - Welcome to the podcast!

Welcome to the Media Astra Ac Terra podcast!  This is the first episode, and runs about 22 minutes long.  After a brief introduction of both the podcast and your host Oraia the Sphinx, the Astra segment looks at the astronomy and mythology of the constellation Orion.  Then the Terra segment takes a look at clear quartz as a mineral and as a metaphysical tool.We then take a little jaunt through the intersecting worlds of magick and science.  The bottom line?  Both are fun!  Ways of learning--human birthrights--ways of love.And now for some recommended reading.  The best book I have seen about modern science as it relates to magick and witchcraft is The Science of the Craft, by William Keith.  And Michael Talbot's older book, The Holographic Universe, is a fascinating read about quantum theory as it relates to "unexplained" phenomena such as energy healing and psychic abilities.  (And according to this New Scientist article, that holographic theory might have just gotten some new juice in it.)I made some mention during the podcast of Jack Parsons.  You can find some of his writings online, but his best surviving essays are collected in Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword.  There are also a couple of biographies of Mr. Parsons; the one I've read and recommend is Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons.Thanks for visiting, and for listening to Media Astra Ac Terra! <!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:"&am p;amp;amp;quot;; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; f ont-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:& ;amp;amp;quot;Times New Roman";} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {color:blue; text-decoration:unde rline; text-underline:single;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {color:purple; text-decor ation:underline; text-underline:single;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:. 5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Secti on1;} -
