Heroic Synthesis of Vital Ideas in a Magical Vein

I am writing this review about 6 weeks after reading, so it isn't as sharp in my mind as it was. I salute anyone who can research, collate and present a synthesis of such a wide range of facts from recent science! I appreciated the potential usefulness of the theory of the mythologist Witzel's "Origins of the World's Mythologies for magical theorizing and model-making. Mr. White appears to dismiss powerful notions from depth psychology, but I don't think Witzels model necessarily excludes notions of archetypal dominants of the collective unconscious. Still, Jung-bashing is de rigueur these days and there it is. I loved the inclusion of archeoastronomy and I agree that if there is an "origin" of the primordial connection of humanity and the spirits, the stars and their location in story is "it". In fact, my personal takeaway is the primacy of stars, planets and constellations as the luminous background of the magical worldview. My reason for only four stars is the nearly overwhelming amount of data presented. I think this was 2 books. I also would have liked further fleshing-out of what felt like a new model of Western Magic (maybe that is coming later?) Thanks, Mr. White, for this massive tome.

Felt this book could have been half as long and contained just as much information. Still not entirely sure what the thesis is. Not sure if this book is about Archeoastronamy, or Geology. Definitely myth is important, but not discussed in great detail. Almost like 3 books waiting to happen, yet none fully realized. I was a bit disappointed as I enjoyed Mr. White's two other books, and his blog before he turned it into a podcast.

Wonderful (and Scholarly) Read!

Both scholarly--and profoundly entertaining. A deep looking-into of the hall-of-mirrors that is contemporary archeology/anthropology/egyptology in search of the foundations of religious belief systems and practice. White comes at his material from the perspective of a practicing Chaos magician--a perspective that makes a quick (and often hilarious) hash of the patronizing attitudes surrounding materialism-only investigations into sites like Göbekli Tepe and the pyramids of dynastic Egypt. The engine that drives White's often-startling read is his skill in managing to make context king at every turn of this tale. Well done.
A very good (academically heavy) read.

Informative and plausible, and unfortunately, not for everyone as Star.Ships seems to be more a thesis paper rather than most the easily digestible 101 books out there on the Occult/Witchcraft. It's damn good though, and I feel that although Star.Ships is an advanced read, that it really should be read by more persons in the Occult/Witchcraft communities.

Ancient myth as collective memory of global climate change
11 janvier 2018 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is enthralling. I read his The Chaos Protocols and wanted to read more. It offers all the intellectual meat of a scholarly book but is very readable. I've told so many friends about it. Dense with archaeological and magical references, full of insights from a wide selection of his own reading -- in so many ways the perfect book for me. I tend to speed read but have made myself slow down, the better to absorb it.
