I haven't read either of those. I started with Raymond Buckland's "Wicca for One" and found it very informative and easy to follow. I also followed up with Buckland's "Complete Book of Witchcraft", although that is geared more towards covens. I also reead Cunningham, mostly to have a different perspective.

This was a very interesting thread to read.  Scott Cunningham's book "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner" is the one I've been wanting to buy the most. 

In my months long quest for knowledge on the subject, I feel I need to stick to information for beginners.  I also like "Wicca for Beginners" by Thea Sabin and also "A Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook" by Stewart & Janet Farrar but I feel the latter may be too advanced for me.

Your thoughts or advice, please.

[I suppose a case could be made for that point of view!]

Well yeah but then that is altogether another thread, and i'm not starting one lol

don't we all, as humans, ask questions and ask "why"! If not then we do not learn and we just
wonder through life aimlessly, well guess some people do live like that lol...

Over-Analyzer well why is it when a child does nothing but asks questions and says "WHY" All the time and just wants to learn and analyze things is this annoying yes but acceptable, but as adults this is wrong...well frowned upon.

Beats me altogether. All my formal qualifications are in science and engineering, so asking "why?" is just part of the job. Why, when we mix these two chemicals together, does the mixture give off heat? Why did that diagonal strut fracture just at that point? Why don't negatively charged electrons collapse into the positively charged nucleus?? Why is there Something rather than Nothing??? ....and on, and on.....                                                                                                 
But i do sometimes tend towards (as you mentioned Drac) that we could be living in a major matrix ...... but if we are like that who is running the matrix, is it someone in the world or an adjoining world, then if an adjoining world would they not be deities of some sort.

I suppose a case could be made for that point of view!

I do believe in deities but that is my belief as i feel i have had prove (again my feelings) but again i feel that no we cannot be certain of them existing nor prove it. I cannot for certain say i am either agnostic or theism, i believe some things but not others. I probably lean towards Theism more though.

But i do sometimes tend towards (as you mentioned Drac) that we could be living in a major matrix and so what i feel and believe would be totally different to what others feel and see (believe), but if we are like that who is running the matrix, is it someone in the world or an adjoining world, then if an adjoining world would they not be deities of some sort.

I guess we cannot truly know for certain what is among us and around us, and who are we to say who is right and who is wrong, that is ones opinion. To truly know for certain, would this be a blessing or a curse, and would your life be more fulfilling to know these things for certain, and also if we knew for certain then what would their still be to learn in this life?

But this is just my opinion :-)

Anytime! I need to play the game again eventually. I hate emulators sometimes because when I was playing Mother, I had saved the game, traveled quite far to another area and my game messed up. Restarted it and it was at the beginning of the first town x.x totally annoying.

Mother is the original version of the game series. It was released in 1989. Earthbound is Mother 2 and Ness is the name of the main character in Mother 2.

Just read the plot section of this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_(video_game) XD

Yeah but what happens to all that knowledge in the meantime? while you're away living your next life. Does it just disappear off into the ether? or is it stored onto some form of celestial flash drive?

Celestial flash drive .... isn't that what they call the Akashic Records?
