Carlos Mérida. Estampas Del Popol Vuh. 1943. 

A series of original lithographs by the Guatemalan artist Mérida, published in Mexico in the 1940s. The works are based on the 16th century Mayan manuscript Popol Vuh, the Quiché people’s elaborately poetic book of creation, which translates to “Book of the People.” More completely it is “a corpus of mytho-historical narratives of the Post-Classic people of the Western Guatemalan Highlands. Popol Vuh’s prominent features are its creation myth, its diluvian suggestion, its epic tales of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and its genealogies. The myth begins with the exploits of anthropomorphic ancestors and concludes with a regnal genealogy, perhaps as an assertion of rule by divine right. As with other texts, a great deal of Popol Vuh’s significance lies in the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies.”

Zero Escape 3 for PS Vita and 3DS Gets First Story Details and Artwork | DualShockers

Yesterday Zero Escape 3 Game Director Kotaro Uchikoshi announced that the game is in development, and today he shared a bit more information during a panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles.

Uchikoshi-san mentioned the following points (courtesy of Twitter user Justin Mikos):

  • 4infinity means Mars Infinity.
  • The leaked words on the 4infinity website four months ago were just a test. Fans should disregard them.
  • Zero Escape 3 will take place in place where people train to go to Mars.
  • Development just started.
  • Fan enthusiasm encouraged reevaluation of Zero Escape 3 and allowed it to enter production.
  • In previous games Uchikoshi-san wanted people to question common sense. In this game he wants gamers to question their own values.
  • Puzzle creation will be done by Uchikoshi-san’s staff.

A piece of artwork for the game was also showcased, and you can see it below:

Simple magical paradigm

How does magic work & how can I get hella spells? you ask

Here you go: 

There are three basic realms of existence

  • Physical
    • The material place where our bodies exist
  • Ethereal
    • The immaterial place where magical energies, spirits, and gods exist
  • Divine
    • The highest plane of reality, where all things originate; the seed of creation, the womb of original thought

Humans are a combination of all three realms. We are divine beings, possessing the spark of original thought and the ability to create. We have spirits (energy bodies) that exist in the ethereal realm. And we are housed in physical bodies.

When you want magic to work, it is good to engage all three realms.

  • Engage the divine spark within through fervent belief, intense willpower, and the knowledge that what you say will come to be. This literally creates a new seed of manifestation through the power of your divine will.
  • Rousing energies, spirits, and gods in the ethereal plane to aid you. This does two main things. Firstly, it draws your creation closer to the physical realm. Secondly, it gives your creation power and force.

  • Lastly, the empowered seed of manifestation is drawn in to the material realm by the use of tools such as amulets, talismans, charms, and so on. 

Here are some magical examples: 

  • An iron-clad belief that you will get a job [divine]
  • Calling upon the powers of Jupiter or the spirit of Basil to aid you [ethereal]
  • Tying these powers in to a paper charm, so they are brought in to the physical world to make physical changes in your life [physical]

  • The unshakable will that you will reduce your anxiety [divine]
  • Petitioning a god to grant you relief from anxiety [ethereal]
  • Placing an amulet on your altar for the god to bless, through which the god’s blessing can manifest in your life [physical]

Grow as a practitioner

Our divine abilities limit our magical abilities. To grow in personal power, the divine spark must be developed through meditation, introspection, and personal evolution.

Our ethereal manipulation is limited by our mental and emotional capacities. In order to effectively raise and direct energies, we must mentally train ourselves, become in tune with our ethereal bodies, and educate ourselves on the forces and denizens in that world. 

Our ability to effectively manifest magical will is dependent on our understanding of the forces in the physical world, being able to understand the flow of the physical around us, and recognizing the natural links between the physical and the ethereal. 

Hello, please note that I am *not* claiming this is the 1 and only way of real magic. This is just one magical system of belief.

“In the depths of the lake is enchanted state.
Strange kingdom of water
Where floater hide the bodies of seduction
For their crystal palaces wall
Where are lichens on the rocks undone
Tune in silver as erroneous eddy foam;
And where they are burning in the fabulous chambers
The fallen star in white lilies flowers.”
