The Magical Multiverse

On Thursday June 12th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
present a discussion on ancient and modern Multiverse concepts in
relation to Hermetic Magick, the Qabalah, astrology and Fortean
phenomenon. We will examine philosophical. scientific, literary and
cinematic models of the Multiverse, sometimes called the “Holographic
Universe” or “Parallel Worlds.” We will trace the idea through the
“nesting spheres” of the geocentric age, to the heliocentric
Renaissance, the invention of the telescope and the discovery of other
galaxies and anti-matter, both in terms of science and the pages of
science fiction. Our references will be Mary-Jane Ruberstein’s “Worlds
Without End,” Michio Kaku’s “Parallel Worlds,” the science fiction of
Philip K. Dick, and Richard S. Shaver, and films such as “The Matrix,”
“Dark City,” and “Lost Highway.” Our challenge will be to reconcile
ancient Hermetic philosophy with the Multiverse concept — so, if you
want to go through the looking glass or down the rabbit hole, tune in a
we will tour the endless “nows” of the Simultane.
