an homage to no reason

“I have a very short attention sp-oh look, a squirrel” —Homer Simpson

The purpose of this website is simple – it serves no real purpose. It exists as an homage to no reason. Its essence is akin to a Fisher Price level accumulation of irrelevant observations about niche subjects of interest to few. Originally conceived as an online repository for shared information among a small circle of friends, it mutated. As our communication needs evolved, we migrated to a different platform, transforming this site into a wasteland. I broke out the proverbial spray paint, prettified some of my thoughts with AI writing tools, and here we are. We are killing time, my friends; wrapped in an illusion of delusion. “In the black cunt of time, Maldoror waits”. We have no purpose. “We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” —Tyler Durden

Call This My Disclaimer of No Reason

There are plenty of ways you can build your own homage to no reason. You likely already have. Check your hobby closet, behind the Hallicrafters Super Skyrider SX-28 you almost rebuilt last summer, next to the Edelbrock 1411 you plan to install in your restored Chevy. Yeah, I know you. And we understand life itself is an homage to no reason.

The Name

The site takes its name from Aleister Crowley’s work “Equinox of the Gods,” which is part of his philosophical corpus. The full quote is “We place no reliance in virgin or pigeon; our method is science, our aim is religion”.  In this particular quote, Crowley is expressing the perspective of the religious and philosophical system he developed known as Thelema.

The Virgin

“We place no reliance on virgin or pigeon” is Crowley’s way of emphasizing science above superstition. The term “virgin” likely refers to the idea of purity or innocence associated with religious and cultural norms, He is suggesting that Thelema does not place importance on such concepts. Crowley’s teachings in Thelema are often associated with a rejection of conventional moral and social restrictions.

The Pigeon

The interpretation of the pigeon reference varies. Historically, pigeons symbolize peace, fertility, and communication. Crowley’s mention might aim to underscore a rejection of conventional religious rituals or superstitions linked to pigeons and their symbolism.

The Purpose of this Site

An Homage to No Reason

BTW if anyone with a “real” site happens, by some slim chance, to see anything here you want, like the little Thelemic calendar widget in the footer, just let me know, and I will be both happily surprised, and quick to send it.
