Is the occult just philosophy for brainlets? It seems like occult stuff is just a system to explain the world and higher concepts strictly on how things make you feel. Key word feel.

Whereas philosophy seeks to explain the world and higher metaphysical concepts through reason, analogy, and abstract thinking. Key word: think

I've come to this conclusion after many years of seeing what people into the occult actually do. All they do is talk about how shit like crystals, tarot cards, yoga, and planet alignments make them FEEEEL.

At least philosophers use their brains. It reminds me of the allegory of the cave. The brainlet occultist reacts to the shadows on the wall, his emotions. He is constantly playing catchup with his own feelings. The philosopher realizes that his thoughts(and therefore decisions) create his emotions, and not the other way around. Therefore the brainlet occultist is like a woman, a slave to their emotions, and the philosopher rising above himself.
>the brainlet occultist is like a woman
the greatest philosophers of all time from every culture have been men and all the witches, voodoists, and gypsy cursers have been women. there's also exceptions of course there were men who were into the occult but they're all soibois like crowley

It also doesn't help that everybody who is into the healing crystals, yoga, and reiki bullshit in the current year is a woman, my facebook is ripe with that shit
Not even close. And you'd need to make a distinction between contemporary attempts at recreating old mystery schools and traditions while calling themselves "occult" or "New Age" and the actual old traditions.

The "real deal" groups and orders rarely advertise since they don't want to deal with the flood wave of hippies and wiccans.

So it depends entirely on the source material you used to draw your conclusions. A few hours on google and browsing sacred-texts or visiting the easy to find forums aren't gonna provide you with much worth paying attention to, but that's the point of being a hidden culture and art.
hell this makes me think of /x/ every year since that board has existed there's been retards who make threads that are

>does anyone else feel it? the paradigm shift is coming
>who else feels the mass awakening coming soon
>muh mass consciousness shift is coming

your shit mass awakening is never coming because it's literally just you being a brainlet retard, idiots have been saying this shit since forever, they just want to feel special.

Thoughts on Western Esotericism? What is it exactly? Does anyone here follow the tradition?

>Thoughts on Western Esotericism?
2much judaism
The image above is from the early decks

Pretty much all modern decks are derived from the Marseilles deck
Ok, so pic related is a book on ceremonial magick, which is a branch of western esotericism and it's my major point of contact with these traditions.

Basically it's boring, uninteresting, doesn't produce any visible tangible results nor internal make feelgod, has outdated and bogus spiritual ideas, it depends a lot on judaism and the kabbalah.

All in all it doesn't strike me as something you would dedicate your life into, it's something you perhaps test to see if there is any truth, then you discard and move on.
It's pretty good. However, as with most esoteric traditions, it's really only useful if you find a living community to embody it, otherwise you're just fumbling around in the dark and are essentially LARPing.
Maybe you shouldn't use a book literally titled "modern magic(k)" when trying to explore old traditions.

It's definitely more hellenistic. Also, I basically agree with you, only I got a little further and claim that the Spartans were more organised in terms of their formation and other details.

what if the only records are stylized in a way that would teach philosophical principles to people in an effective manner?
I think it mostly came down to them using spears. It's far more likely to get your torso, upper legs/crotch, and head poked, than it is your hands and your lower legs.
If you had someone with a sword slashing at you, then obviously you would desperately try to get some sleeve protection.

What makes you think the physical is anything special? If the physical is purely non-mental and the universe is just a bunch of combinations of physical stuff then there would be no consciousness at all. There would be no 1st person subjective awareness.
>If I shot you in your head, you'd stop being conscious real quick.
You're thinking of dualism, and I'm not a dualist. There is interaction between the mental and the physical because they are made of the same substance.
how do you kill consciousness?

animals die, machines break down. You equate consciousness with a clock.
What the fuck does that mean?

What went on during the 2-26 incident in imperial Japan?
It was an attempted coup but I cannot really understand the reasons behind it.
Seems a lot of autism was involved.
>Seems a lot of autism was involved.

That's imperial Japanese politics in a nutshell.
Fascist-inspired young officers wanted a "Showa restoration" that would establish a totalitarian regime with the Emperor as its leader. The Emperor didn't actually like them and had their little rebellion quelled. Way to get cucked hard...
so it's fascists vs fascists?
Could they have succeed if they had killed all the targeted officiers?

It's not like "race mixing" is communist, just definitely something a communist should shoot for in their utopia. Just because communists starve themselves doesn't mean fasting is communist, either, but it is a thing they do.

I swear, communists and racists need to go get laid together.

You know there are literally zillions of attractive Chinese women yet you picked some weird five-headed monstrosity to support your point. In the future make a better /s/ folder.
The Japanese word in your meme image should be 陛下, not 天皇.
You address the emperor as 陛下 "Your Majesty."
Literally it means "at the foot of the palace steps," and comes from the fact that traditionally one would only be able to report to the emperor through an attendant who would be standing in this location.
天皇 is a noun meaning "The Emperor of Japan." You would not use this word to directly address his person in the same way Elizabeth II's servants would not say, "What will you have for breakfast today, Queen of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?"
