Meta-Magick: The Book of Atem
by Philip H. Farber

Foreword by Douglas Rushkoff


“Meta-Magick is a brilliant and patently original book of magical
instruction that future generations will revere as an ‘ancient classic.'” – Lon
Milo DuQuette, author of My Life with the Spirits and Enochian Vision Magick

“Philip H. Farber in his new book has once again shown where Magick
meets the brain.” – Richard Bandler, co-founder of NLP

“The intent of Farber’s ongoing literary sigil is to move his readers
beyond the practice of individual magicks into the shared space of collective,
consensual hallucination…. Farber quickly branches out in new directions –
casting a visionary world picture as if it were a guide book, a description and
instruction manual to a realm that is quite literally created in the process of
its depiction and subsequent imagination.” – Douglas Rushkoff, author of
Coercion and Media Virus

“Years ago, Aleister Crowley published books he considered to be
talismans. In Meta-Magick: The Book of Atem, Philip H. Farber has produced a
book that each reader turns into an evoked entity. It is a unique linking of
ancient techniques of magick combined with modern science and advanced
Neuro-Linguistic Programming and even includes concepts that would be at home in
Gibson’s Neuromancer. Atem uses the ancient concept of evocation while eschewing
needless excesses that have evolved around the techniques over centuries.
Instead of relying on objectively questionable external entities, the book
reveals how to bring forth and direct specific inner qualities. The result
combines personal power with practical simplicity in the first book on the
subject that moves evocation into the 21st century.” – Donald Michael Kraig,
author of Modern Magick

“Phil Farber has a genius for transformative edu-tainment. His writing
captures the warmth and liveliness of his workshops because multisensory
experiential processes are part of every page. In decades of magickal
experimentation and hypnotherapy practice I have never seen such a concise
digest of contemporary techniques for invoking desirable qualities and banishing
negative ones from the attentional field. It is arguably the ONLY Magick or NLP
book you will ever need… Whether you are healing, exploring or aspiring this
is a journey to the frontiers of consciousness, the cutting edge of human
potential. ” – Iona Miller, co-author of The Modern Alchemist.

Simple Evocations by Philip H. Farber

Basic Positive Resource Entity

1) Banishing – Imagine a circle around you, where you sit. Take a deep breath. As you inhale, let your awareness fill the circle. As you exhale, let your awareness contract to as small a point as you can, in the center of your chest. After 5 or 6 cycles of this, take a really, really, really deep breath, filling the circle with your awareness, then exhale forcefully and fully, letting (or imagining) your breath sweep through your personal circle, chasing out anything contrary to your purpose.

2) Evocation – Identify something in your life that makes you feel very good in some way. It can be a feeling of confidence, intelligence, satisfaction, arousal, intoxication, approval, or whatever you might describe as a good feeling. Pay very careful attention to HOW it makes you feel, the structure of the feeling. Where does the feeling start? What kind of feeling is it? Where does it go as it develops? Does it continue to move? Is it static? Follow it through to its peak. Then decide “If this feeling had a color, what would it be?” Imagine the color (or colors) in your body in exactly the areas where the feeling is. Then imagine that you are taking the colored shape out of your body and flip it around to face you. Place it on the floor outside your circle and breathe deeply, feeding it breath and energy on each exhalation.

Keep breathing and feeding it energy until it transforms. Once it has transformed, imagine you are communicating with it. Ask it what it wants to be called. Ask it what it can teach you that it has never before revealed. Ask it how you can feel really good more often. Find out whatever you can from it. Thank it for everything.

You can also ask this entity if it has anything that it would like to do, away from your physical body, off in the external parts of consciousness. If it says that it does, then you can get an agreement of time from the entity… five minutes, an hour, a day, five years, or whatever is appropriate to the task, and the promise from the entity to return to your physical presence at that time. Note down the time of the entity’s return so that you can take notice when it occurs.

3) Closing – Absorb the entity and anything else you may have created in your aura during this operation.

4) Repeat Banishing.

Phil Farber and Meta-Magickal Currents

Posted by invizweb on February 14, 2008

Philip H. Farber is a man of many talents. In the past he has written for the Disinformation Company and the Green Egg publication of the Church of All-Worlds. Currently he is known as a lecturer and author on the subjects of altered states of consciousness and magick. In 1995, he wrote the now out-of-print collector’s item FutureRitual, a book that merges Neuro-Linguistic programming with Ceremonial magick techniques, which has a forward by Industrial Music pioneer, Genesis (Breyer) P-Orridge. This summer, Weiser Books will release Farber’s Meta-Magick:Book of Atem. What does this book entail? Find out in the proceeding interview. We also discuss his past with Genesis and Robert Anton Wilson, his theory of magick, one-eyed monsters, and unicorns. Phil’s website is:: He also teaches an online course at

Interviewer:  How are you Phil?  Can you tell our readers what your family background is in regards to your childhood?

Phil Farber: I grew up in the 1960s on Long Island, which was at once both a very ordinary kind of place and a very weird one. Ordinary in the sense that communities there were supposed to typify post-World War II suburban life and the American Dream of owning a home, a car, and commuting to a job; weird in that if you really tuned in to what was happening you realized that the place was trashed and was only becoming more crowded, polluted, and socially stagnant.

My parents were both scientists. My mother was a mycologist, one of the very few women PhDs actually working in the sciences at the time. She worked in pharmaceutical laboratories that specialized in allergy products and when she couldn’t find a babysitter, I’d come along to the lab. Quite a bit of my younger years were in that setting. My father was a physicist and worked mostly as an electronic engineer. He was the inventor, in 1965, of the first computer-based color scanner and the four color separation process that we now know as the CMYK protocol. This was an invention that literally changed the world of media – enabling major magazines like Life, Look, Time, Newsweek, etc. to specialize in photojournalism and bring images of the wider world into the homes of millions. And yet he rarely talked about this. Read the rest of this entry »
