    1. Of the two books by Peter J Carroll that I own, this is by far and away the best. A slim volume - including the appendices and index it only runs to 160 pages - but a high-level book, lean and seething with ideas. The aim of the book is twofold: to arrive at an understanding of the true nature of magic & the universe, and to give some preliminary advice on how to use this reconfigured model of reality to 'do' magic.Carroll, a leading light in the world of Chaos Magic, is an eclectic and high [...]


    2. Finished this one in three days, just couldn't put it down for too long. The concepts are brought to the reader very easily, it's only near the end that things get complicated for me with the equations. Throughout the book I found synchronicity with my own thoughts and the chapter I had not started yet. Easy to read 3/4 of the way, up until the point that it isn't.


    3. From 'Vorticitating Hyperspheres' to the lifeforce of rocks, this book's a brain-opener. Don't ask me what it all means though.


    4. Apophenia is the seeing of connection between event that others fail to see. In this small but intense book Peter J.Carrol one of Chaos Magick's supreme mages gives forth to the reader a philosophy that is much different then that offered by any other other magical system. It is totally non theistic in it's own way, challenges assumptions and throws in a whole bunch of science. Chaos philosophy views magic as a technique and regards religion as important only so far as it helps the practitioner [...]


    5. 4.5 starsThis is honestly a great book. It has a good approach to the subject and personally I loved that fact that there was a scientific approach to it, ranging from popular science to actual equations for those who want to go a bit deeper. Also, even if you are a beginner or someone with an experienced background in both science and/or occult, this book offers some great food for thought.I give it 4,5 start, simply because of the chapter about "Invoking Apophenia", because it kinda killed the [...]


    6. This is something elset only is Pope Pete one of the foremost proponents of Chaos Magic, he is a theoretical physicist of the highest orderybe one of the most important thinkers in recent historyI really hope that future man will recognize Carroll for the mental giant that he is, and you should by reading this book.Just leave your mental baggage at the door and read it with an open mind. No, you don't have to start casting spells, either. ;-)


    7. Fascinating, gripping, an exciting read but I have my doubts that humans are apprentice gods, the anthropomorphism creeps in - maybe we're peripheral to the whole universe rather than central to it?
