The Flow of DAO

Introduction Immediate apologies to those expecting spiritual commentary regarding “the flow of The Way”; the DAO that I’m going to talk about here is the Decentralised Autonomous Organisation, a relatively new concept in organisational structure with a heavy technological underpinning….

Adventures in Oenurgy

The art of Oenomancy (divination by wine) has been around for thousands of years but – unlike Theurgy and Thaumaturgy – there doesn’t appear to be a tradition of Oenurgy, magical workings with wine. This became relevant yesterday as I… Continue Reading →

I should have been a brilliant sceptic, even now jostling for position as James ("the Amazing") Randi's anointed successor.  With a psychological imbalance towards thinking (as opposed to feeling) that makes Spock look like Mother Theresa, two lawyer parents to instill the partiality of… Continue Reading →
