Magickal Text
ASCII MAGIQ

 

 ---- ASCII Sigils

 It was once brought up to me that 1337 could theoretically be used as a magickal language for the Chaos Magickian or the Technomancer and I could not agree more, though have never actually tried it. What I have tried however, is using ASCII art in my SIGIL techniques that involved technology. I figured that fixing my computer would relate more with text art generated on my screen rather then drawing done with pen and paper.

The above sigil was created in order to fix my CD player. FUBAR does not begin to relate how it was acting. It would not play anyaudio CD's and when a data CD was put in the thing would make strange grinding noises. Noises that sounded like tiny men trying to claw their way out of a box! At the time I was unemployed so I could not buy a new CD player. This meant no music, no games, and if my OS crapped out, no computer. I needed to do something, so I tried magick.

I originally did draw the sigil on paper, then with my webcam I took a still of it, then I watermarked it into WORD and drew it's outline. The text below the image is a 1337 mantra which accents the use of the sigil rather nicely. Once I had the ASCII sigil complete and added the 1337 mantra, I then charged it while listening to some mp3's I had ripped onto my computer.

For a day or two I randomly tested to see how well it worked and during this time it showed no signs of success. After a few days I simply gave up & forgot about it. Nearly a month later I needed to install something (well, something with Windows needed the windows disk), I stuck it the disc in and crossed my fingers. SUCCESS! Not just success, WONDERFUL RESULTS! For over a year I used the CD player nearly daily for games, music, and installing whatever needed installed. I imagine that the CD player still works, but I have since upgraded machines and this new box is shinier...
