- Words have intent and from that, power(books, agreements, language, etc)
- language with intent may include more than just words (gestures, representations, pictures)
- representations such as emoji and memes are there own niche language
- it is absolutely possible to craft a spell that includes emoji and memes 👍
This is also a very empowering and humbling way to consider #magic and #language. This goes well beyond the "hurhur, don't give the fey your name" trope. Many wield the power in their words in a raw and unrecognized way.
A muttered curse about someone's appearance overheard can ruin someone's day, a thoughtful comment can lift someone up. Rarely will sparks fly from your fingertips, or mystic energy will manifest before your eyes, but that's because the power and magic of words are subtle and can often fail to have an effect or go unheard.
If you've ever felt touched by a book or changed by someone's comment, you've felt this type of magic. Try to speak concensusly to keep the raw power of your words from going a wry.
@Crazypedia this was a big part that started me on my journey into etymology, the secret meanings of words and such.
@Crazypedia you could in theory as well create an entity formed from memes or creepypasta/copypasta. The tulpa idea or similar an 'unihipili, but the 'unihipili is fed memes and such.
Be used to haunt a person with memes.
ʻunihipili — Pukui-Elbert, Haw to Eng / ʻunihi.pili /,
1. n., Spirit of a dead person, sometimes believed present in bones or hair of the deceased and kept lovingly. ʻUnihipili bones were prayed to for help, and sometimes sent to destroy an enemy.
hōʻunihipili Caus/sim.; to deify.
2. n., Same as ʻuhinipili #2.
@Crazypedia yes! There is a bit more to it than just that, in some cases was taking shards of spirit from other souces to create a new one.
@Crazypedia gotta love the modern era, how many books and such are accessible on the internet~~
A place for serious content to casual interest, discussions, practices, and all things pagan, heathen, and witchy; nature, magic, and self discovery and growth.
