The 37th Mandala

was reading about the Half Life videogames. some of the original story seemed familiar, so i looked into the lore.

Marc Laidlaw, was one of the main writers for Valve. he was mainly responsible, for the Half Life storyline. turns out, he was an author beforehand, and wrote novels. so, i tried one.

The 37th Mandala, is pretty interesting. its chocked FULL of occult, magick, and spirituality stuff/references. its pretty interesting. i thought maybe /x/ ppl would like it, so im here to share. thats all. ok, peace out homies.

      So much science gobbetyasiatic and hyping up Gordon Freeman in the beginning but all you end up doing is pushing a green gem cart into a yellow lightning beam. then everything goes wrong immediately kek

        ummm, this book has nothing to do with Half Life. vidya, is HOW i came across this book.

        if ure into /x/ subjects, yet dont even glance at the synopsis of this book, then im sorry, but ure missing out. theres so much stuff, in this book, not for the layman, but for anyone who knows anything about occult, magick, and spirituality. normies would prolly not enjoy this book. it would seem like gobbledy-asiatic. admittedly, if i had come across this book BEFORE i was into /x/ stuff, i would have thought it was stupid. like, you guys can make fun, all you want, but im trying to share something GENUINELY entertaining, and interesting. but again, this has NOTHING to do with Half Life. the only thing in common, is that it was written by the same dude.

        IF you were referring to Half Life one, then did you not recognize a resemblance, to a well known /x/ conspiracy story? its basically the same story, as "The Montauk Project", or incident. THATS what drew my attention. Half Life one, is basically a video game, based on that story. Which connects to the "Phildelphia Project", which isnt too far from the game Portal. (Half Life and Portal, were rumoured to be in the same Canon universe). so many coincidences...

        anyway, just tryna share interesting /x/ shit. but, i guess you guys are too cool...

    I read this a long time ago, unfortunately the occult references are mostly superficial. If I recall correctly, the mandelas were basically just a spin on Stephen King’s langoliers

      if you read the book, then youd know im not referring to the mandalas themselves. they arent even mandalas....

      im talking about all the little details in the book, that wont be noticed, unless you are versed in occult, magick, and spirituality. he never outright says things. its all the little details. its chocked full of details, that only someone in the know, would be aware of. at the same time, i bet theres even more deeper meanings, that i havent noticed yet.

      similar to, but not exactly like, the comics Promethea, by Alan Moore. sure, on the surface, its a superhero story. but if youve read enough occult and spirituality books, youd see the little hidden details, between the obvious plot, blatantly used to carry the story along. sort of like the concept, to hide in plain sight.

      as for the Langoliers, i cant say whether or not that book influenced Marc Laidlaw in anyway, but to compare these two books, is folly. this guy is lightyears beyond Stephen King, in many ways. to even suggest, it clearly shows, the level with which, you are at. Langoliers is like a nursery rhyme, compared to this. both literally, and figuratively. stephen king writes at a sixth grade level, and barely has anything profound to say. if he is aware of occult and spirituality, well, he never really lets on.

      so yes, 37th mandala is an entertaining story, but if you can see all the little hidden details, its a very rewarding read. it will possibly, lead you to other books, subjects, and ideas. (which is what a good book, should do).

      again, what im saying is, if you are well versed in these subjects, this is VERY entertaining, and FILLED with so many cool details. this guy is obviously, in the know.

      and sorry, lastly, im sorry, but you found the occult references, superficial? are we reading the same book? again, shows your knowledge level.

      i.e. some ppl see the movie, the exorcist, as a cool horror movie. but, if youre aware of those practices, then youd realize the movie, is basically a field manual. if you cant connect these dots, then you have MUCH more reading to do. not fiction, but occult and spirituality, books.

        I read the book about 15 years ago, so dunno. Laidlaw has a YouTube and the guy doesn’t strike me much as an adept

      see. some ppl get it. like, heres a different example: DragonBall. its basically a retelling of spirituality, with a different skin. admittedly i never read the books, or watched the shows, but ive read enough plot lines, etc, to see, clear as day, that Toriyama, is obv aware, of spirituality. am i calling him a high-level sorcerer? no, i dont know jack about him. but, very obviously, he knows his stuff. prolly more than i do. this is the same feeling, i get from Laidlaws book. either he plagiarized it, is a ghost writer, or is in the know. WAY too many details, to be an accident. anyone with moderate to advanced knowledge of this stuff, will find this book interesting, and will prolly lead you, to discovering new shit, or connect previous dots, that youve left unconnected.

        Could you maybe dive into that FF with noctis
        I'm trying to see what they meant by "savior to the star"
        I thought maybe it was in reference to a sigil that could point to the entity
        I think the CIA has some star in a shield thing but so do many others even Heineken has a star on the bottle....
        Such a vague symbol for me but not so for others
        Thanks!

          wait, im guessing you mean Dragonball? if so, ive never read or watched Dragonball. but if you look at the synopsis, and read some plotlines, its obvious, its about spirituality. you know, "ascending" and shit. i mean hell, theres even a dragon in it....

            I'm assuming your OP
            It's related to a square enix game
            https://www.reddit.com/r/FFXV/comments/dx9d69/the_tale_of_the_chosen_king_saviour_to_the_star/
            It's the reference of what this "king" character represents as in the story it is depicted as a savior to "the star"
            Apologies for the reddit link but it's basically for context
            As you know truth can be stranger than fiction

            that seems interesting. wish i knew anything to contribute, but i dont. im sorry. but japanese media, seems to be VERY on point, with this stuff. anime, manga, games, etc. prolly cause, their culture embraces this stuff, while north american culture ostracizes these topics. sorry i cant contribute. (yes, im OP).

            Yeah it's very obvious that their media is influenced by esoteric and occult teachings.
