PRAISES SO FAR FOR THE NEURONOMICON:
“This has to be the definitive book on the occult. It’s beautifully written and also highly accessible. The artwork is amazing too.” – Pat Mills, originator of 2000 AD
“One of the best magick books I’ve read for years. I would say on a par with some of AC’s works. And thats not a thing I say lightly.” – Michael [Mick] Norris, illustrator of LiberNull & Psychonaut
“Excellent.” – Ray Sherwin, originator of Chaos Magic
“An education.” Valerie Sinason, The Tavistock Institute

The Neuronomicon represents the first genuine advance in the technology of magick in 100 years, and is possibly the most powerful grimoire currently available in the West without clearance from the government. The essence of its model originates with mind-scientists working in secretive military programs concerned with the development of psychic abilities such as remote viewing and influence. I am indebted to all those involved in leaking this information, and to those who joined me in experimenting with the theory and merging it with traditional magick.
I have drawn from several decades of experience, during which I have learned directly from initiates of many paths; from my origins in the hereditary witchcraft of Essex through to the ceremonial magick of the Western Tradition, Tantra (Buddhist and Hindu), Haitian Voudon, the metiságe of Voudon / Makaya / Orissa / Obeah practised at street level in cities such as Bristol, London, New Orleans, and New York, as well as many other sources of knowledge encountered along the way. I have also experimented extensively with an advanced version of the Audio-Visual Synthesiser ‘mind machines’ originally developed in the C.I.A. funded psychic experiments of Project Stargate. Finally, for reasons discussed elsewhere, I have communicated with a number of therapists and survivors dealing with the fallout of MK Ultra style mind control programmes. All of these streams have informed the current of The Neuronomicon.
While many chapters cover material familiar to any magician, such as the casting of the circle or the disciplines of meditation, their relation to the emerging paradigm brings startling implications. This is the reason I have approached the subject through what are likely to be familiar symbol systems, rather than the obscurer mysteries. The deeper one’s knowledge of these areas, the deeper the implications, given adequate meditation. Just as one may be familiar with every individual number employed in mathematics, this does not imply mastery of the discipline, and even with mastery there are always more discoveries to be made.
The techniques and concepts discussed herein are often discussed using the terminology of psychology, neurology, neurolinguistic programming, quantum physics, and information science. As modern practitioners we are less and less allowed the luxury of belief untroubled by intellectual analysis. One may not seek the mysteries without intuition, yet similarly one may not seek them without logic, empiricism, and rationality; to do so invites delusion and obsession. The practice of magick requires, as even the charlatan Crowley recognised, “the method of science and the aim of religion.”
There are many who believe magick and science to be the antithesis of each other; such is a misunderstanding based on an incomplete knowledge of either. In centuries past the two were indistinguishable – it is well known, for example, that the origins of chemistry lie in alchemy. In our modern day the most advanced sciences are once again becoming increasingly indistinguishable from magick. We have discovered that our holographic reality is dependent on the one thing science has yet to explain and understand; consciousness. Our most advanced scientists have postulated the theory that consciousness consists of information, which itself exists beyond the confines of the space-time continuum.
For the longest time magick has been assumed to be either ‘acausal’, or else caused by such things as ‘spirits’, the existence of which cannot be proven – hence the apparent dichotomy with science. In fact there is a cause, as can now be measured and recorded, just as it can be shown that this cause remains the same regardless of what beliefs or paradigms the magician may choose to invest in. That cause is consciousness – something which may now be measured, and effected through technology.
Magick is a bit like computer programming; it does not matter if one believes the computer works because of gods, spirits, aliens, or any other reason – it still works when you turn it on; hence lesser sorcerers have assumed that belief itself is arbitrary – or even that belief ‘shapes reality’. It is only if one intends to control others by means of a cult that such beliefs have any advantage. In contrast, if one intends to fix, improve upon, or hack the programming such errornous belief becomes a clear disadvantage. This grimoire is intended for all those who wish to know how the programming codes of magick ‘really work’.
I have classed these operations as neuromancy, a term borrowed from the science-fiction of William Gibson. Nevertheless, the conceptual tools may be applied by any magician, regardless of the tradition or ‘current’ they align with, if any. There are reasons I have consciously borrowed from popular culture; my aim is to employ language the reader is likely to be familiar with, but does not alienate with presumptions of belief. As far as possible I have presented the techniques of sorcery stripped of cultural significators. What I have not done is developed a new system of magick, or syncretised an eclectic belief system. Instead I have explored the commonalities between the various traditions to show that, whilst the language and symbols may vary, their approach is essentially the same; correlating also with modern advances in the mind sciences. Since these are not different ‘belief systems’ in the first place (except in the sense of language) there is no need for syncretisation.
I also speak of the Invisibles; a term some might recognise from Grant Morrison’s graphic novel, which he in turn borrowed from Voudon. This is not to imply any one cultural bias over another. In referring to the Mystery of the Red Ray, for example, I mean that force that manifests as Ganesh, Mercury, Hermes, Nabu, Thoth, Exu, Simbi-Makaya, or Odin, among other masques, who is cross culturally found at the crossroads, is master of magick, and who teaches through trickery. The irony is that les Invisibles – the lwa or ‘laws’ of Voudon – have no problem wearing masques and names from popular culture. These are the elusive powers and aspects of the collective unconscious otherwise referred to as the archetypes; a term Jung adopted after the Archons of the Gnostics, in whose esoteric philosophy he found great inspiration. Others have performed sorcery evoking the ‘shadows’ of the archetypes as the Elder Gods of the Cthulhu mythos, served Ghede / Saturn beneath the masque of Darth (Daath) Vader, or have invoked the divine trickster as Bugs Bunny (Br’er Rabbit being none other than the African mystery called Anansi).
The source of all these mysteries I call the Greater Mind, implying what might otherwise be called Siva, Bhodi-Mind, Obatala, Oludamare, All Father, or ‘God’; although the implications are less that of a personal deity than of an impersonal consciousness behind all manifestation. As Albert Einstein put it, “Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a Spirit is involved in the laws of the Universe – a Spirit vastly superior to that of man”.
That ‘magical energy’ called chi by the Chinese, prana by the Hindu of India, ashé in Voudon, önd within the Northern Tradition, pneuma by the ancient Greeks, by the Alchemists as Azoth, called also vril in modern Theosophy, known to Wilhelm Reich as orgone and to Von Reichenbach as odyle, I refer to simply as the Force; although our results may not be as dramatic as the Jedi, the meaning is essentially the same.
In this same manner I refer to to what the Hindu call Maya, the Buddhists call Samsara, and the heathens called the Web of Wyrd, as the Matrix; implying an illusory universe dependent, like the programming of a computer, upon a binary code (i.e. duality), and itself the product of consciousness. As Maxwell Planck put it, “All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
As a Hindu monk once said to me, all religions and spiritual systems are ultimately maps with which to navigate Maya (Matrix), without which the seeker may easily get lost in endless possibility, or suffer any of the countless pitfalls that threaten the unwary. Yet there will always be those who insist on striking out on their own, learning from their successes and errors along the way. Such a journey is bound to be filled with hidden wonders, but also many painful lessons; yet it is only ever by straying from the beaten track that you will find the path direct.

Book Three: Context provides some background to the practice of magick generally, giving comparisons between the techniques and beliefs of various traditions, and discussing the origins of the genuine left hand path cross culturally in ‘spiritual / political dissent’. I have also included some chapters concerning government mind control and its involvement with magick. These are not some conspiracy theory, but something I have direct experience of; the reader is referred to my work Beast Wing 666: Ritual Abuse in the UK. While this ongoing personal situation is beyond the scope of The Neuronomicon, it has to be said that this knowledge did not come easily, or without considerable personal cost. That I am still here, carrying on the ‘good fight’, is something my enemies could never have expected. That I am gradually, against all the odds, actually ‘winning’ (there are no winners is a situation like this) is testament not only to my magick, but to the integrity of my truth.
Nevertheless, there will inevitably be many unable to accept the information in this book, and who will respond with ‘knee jerk’ conditioned reflex – just as they have been programmed to. There will be much they have previously accepted as truth they will have to question. The misinformation contradicted by this work will have been received first, enforced through repetition, and widely accepted. Not only will this book threaten their sense of self, but also their sense of confirmation by society. When any falsehood becomes widely accepted in such a fashion it becomes almost impossible for an individual to perceive otherwise. Whenever our beliefs are contradicted at such a level we experience cognitive dissonance; this elicits a neurological response identical to that provoked by actual, physical threat. We see this most often when someone becomes irrationally obstinate during an argument. At such times our brains are not functioning at their optimum.
There will also be those who do accept this information, along with its implications for society, whose entire world view will be turned upon its head. Most will not be grateful. Only a few will resonate with this work, putting theory into practice and testing it against reality. They are likely to have a natural inclination towards meditation and to already practice some form of magick or psychic discipline. Perhaps they will also have experiences revealing the dark underbelly of our ‘occulture’, and rather than bury their heads in denial are engaged in finding solutions.
It is to these few that The Neuronomicon is ultimately intended. I am glad it found you.
