What is a Hypersigil?


The “hypersigil” or “supersigil” develops the sigil concept beyond the static image and incorporates elements such as characterization, drama, and plot. The hypersigil is a sigil extended through the fourth dimension. My own comic book series The Invisibles was a six-year long sigil in the form of an occult adventure story which consumed and recreated my life during the period of its composition and execution. The hypersigil is an immensely powerful and sometimes dangerous method for actually altering reality in accordance with intent. Results can be remarkable and shocking.

After becoming familiar with the traditional sigil method, see if you can create your own hypersigil. The hypersigil can take the form of a poem, a story, a song, a dance, or any other extended artistic activity you wish to try. This is a newly developed technology so the parameters remain to be explored. It is important to become utterly absorbed in the hypersigil as it unfolds; this requires a high degree of absorption and concentration (which can lead to obsession but so what? You can always banish at the end) like most works of art. The hypersigil is a dynamic miniature model of the magician’s universe, a hologram, microcosm, or “voodoo doll” which can be manipulated in real time to produce changes in the macrocosmic environment of “real” life.

  2. I've been doing this for some time it seems. lol

    32 Songs in my 30 year Project 'The Book of Time' are Magickally composed and recorded. They are now presented as videos on YouTube for anyone to watch and listen to. ;)

    I have composed and recorded 32 Songs written Magickally (lyrics were automatic) and presented as a single Project called 'The Book of Time'. They are available to anyone who is interested as YouTube videos which were also home-made with intent.

    When I was performing the songs live it was a Magickal act and the performance a ritual.

    How are 'Hypersigils' anything different?
