Fotamecus, bending time for you

I notice there is a distinct lack of Fotamecus here at Tumblr; searching for it, all I could find was two fairly old posts… I think it’s time to change that.

First, an explanation might be in order; what is this Fotamecus I’m speaking of? Where does it come from, what does it do, why is it important? Well, first of all: it’s an egregore, a thought-form; a magic sigil that’s gone viral and taken an independent form (if you’re new to chaos magic and/or sigils, this still probably won’t tell you much; I’ll explain in a second). Secondly, it isn’t really that important, but it sure is useful.

Here’s why:

Fotamecus let’s you compress and expand time. Assuming you give it a lot and a lot again of energy, you could potentially have longer nights of sleep, shorter work hours, increased amounts of time for having fun, studying and/or procrastinating, just relaxing around, having meaningful conversations… Faster traveling… More efficient working if you don’t mind longer work hours…
 Everything to do with controlling time. Of course you won’t be doing all that because it would take tons of energy given to Fotamecus… Right? Well, it’s really your choice, who am I to judge. Become the co-master of time for all I care. ;)

Now that I’ve piqued your interest, here’s what:

Fotamecus began as a sigil (the symbol just above is the original form of it) and afterwards became a servitor; Finally going viral (or rather, intentionaly made viral) and growing into an egregore by sharing and usage by many (the viral form of the sigil can be seen below). Here’s a link to the original article explaining Fotamecus and its use:

That’s about all about Fotamecus for this post; and then for the explanations of the concepts I promised I’d explain here:
 A sigil is a form of magic (a magical tool if you will) done by converting a sentence into a simple (or not so simple, google for hypersigils or hypersigil explanation)
 A servitor is a magical being that someone - or maybe a group of people - has created. It has a clear purpose and most often has no mind of its own, simply carrying out orders made by its creator(s). The more defined its “programming” is, the more likely it is that it’s going to stay as a “bound” servitor; that is, it’s less likely it gains a personality and wants to go independent.
 An Egregore is an independent thought-form, an astral being, a spirit, a servitor that’s gained enough power and personality to either break free or negotiate its way to independence. It’s pretty much a person without a physical body, still most probably having a clear intention of doing whatever it was made to do… just within it’s own terms now.
 If there was anything else you want to ask, ask away. All I ask is for you to do is to share this, to get this as far and wide as possible to give Fotamecus more power and influence over time, and to make more people recognize the possibility of bending time to their bidding.

Will you use Fotamecus?

Fotamecus: A Time Experiment

Fotamecus is a bit of an icon among the chaos magicians of the internet. [1] He was one of the first sigils that went on to become a servitor, and then later an egregore. [2] He was created with the intention of compressing or expanding time. His name itself is a mantric sigil- fo-tuh-meh-kus.

“The film is an experiment. It is about modern day magick which has given birth to a new strain of practice called ‘Chaos Magick’. Instead of making a rather tedious documentary from the outside we decided instead to make a film with the magickians. It will record the casting of a spell through the creation of a ‘sigil’, a magickal image endowed with power. This spell is about time, an attempt by the magickians to construct a tool with which our subjective perception of time can be altered. The focus on FOTAMECUS is because this name is already used by Chaos Magicians across the world in attempts to alter their subjective perceptions of time. This project will provide a unique insight into an activity shrouded in secrecy and which is attracting larger and larger numbers of practitioners. On one estimate there were thought to be over 250,000 practicing witches or magicians in this country.”

I also found a trailer.
