I found a great thread from another site. It offers an artistic approach at creating 'enchantments'.  Whether by words and phrases, images, and sound. An inspirational approach that may help others transform their own personal relationships into something more positive.

 

An Art form of great Quality

That is the question.... :chicken4:

http://the-fringe.co..._of_enchantment

I'll offer a bit here on Chickensomething of what I added on this interesting thread. It dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time...

Regarding the enchantments created by the medium in which I call like to call 'The Flickers'. An old term. A 'magic' word used by people long since dead when Magic lanterns became something more....

I'll try to get to more on magic words at the end of this post.

The problems and dangers of time travel. Sometimes, it's real hard getting back to the future. Ah well, I guess that's just the pro's and con's of hitch hiking. The guide on the galaxy is pretty good for that. All this led to a bit of visual psychology. You know, the hypnotism of the flickers. Symbolism of imagery combined with sounds and music. Looking at iconography and how it can be used for enchantments. Showing major contentions in the psychological injections of ideas and fantasies into our minds and ultimately our human spirit. These injections include both positive and negative stimulus.

Which ingredients for enchantments are the best kind? We could use humor as an example. Divide it in two. One side comedy, the other satire. Comedy is positive. Satire is negative.

Visuals in black and white. Silent film era...Positive and negative flickers of thought! Yeah, I know these are old flickers of enchantment, but, I think they're pretty good. Those old enchanters really knew what they were doin.

Harold Lloyd - Satire

His films seem to mock the human condition and enjoy doing it. Extreme situations of danger and personal catastrophe . Master at editing and clever camera work. Willing to do own stunts at great hazard.

Charlie Chaplin - Comedy

Comedy with etiquette and finesse. Positive in a world of suffering. The tramp should never talk. He says enough by his genius at silent lucid gesture.

Can this be a magical word of enchantment?

In those days your subtitle count was the measure of your art...

Now, I gotta ask, is this really good etiquette at the table?

Subliminal flickers in the frequencies of light and sound. Blasting the insular vortex with contrived frequencies from outside sources. Inhibiting critical thinking with flickering media to create hyper awareness using charisma and cinema. Creating all sorts of mannerisms, gestures, acting techniques, and other forms of etiquette to induce mass hypnosis.

Magic words! Again, with the magic words. They are important. Be they headlines, subtitles, and sub divisional categories of all sorts. Each with their own name. Know the name. Know its power. The Magic of Politics...cheer, baby, cheer...non stop! All hail to the charismatic image! When confronted by charisma the brain seems to turn off its critical thinking skills. I see a magic word in process today. Right this very minute! Working its insidious weave within our minds.

I can't say whether it's good or bad. But, I do know the name of TRUMP is a charismatic word of enchantment!

Yes, words can bring enchantment! Learning to break them apart and putting them back together in different ways can help with the psychology of their power. They are only magic if you let them be....

I really, really like this thread. I find it fascinating. A little treasure that I'm proud to be part of. I have more to add
 
 -  :  -  notes and reference -  :  -
 
First -  :  -
 
This video documents the timeline of the Legend of Merlin and dreams of places where higher learning is encouraged! His growth and development through the ages - from his genesis to our current modern day versions.
 
Using imagery and poetic frenzy (Arwen) to describe a wildman in a wild place - historical reference John the Baptist. Another further reference would be Diogenes the Cynic.
 
Mallory's version is one of the first books published after the invention of the printing press. After the Bible, of course. Interesting!
 
Filled with symbols of religion and legend combined to form the myth that is still alive and well today.
 
 
If this is blocked in your country use a proxy!
 
Second -  :  -
 
This one demands more focus and attention. I tend to take my time with these things...
 
John Ruskin: The Seven Lamps of Architecture - A playlist
 
 
Aphorism 4. All architecture proposes an effect on the human mind, not merely a service to the human frame.
 
ยง 1. Architecture is the art which so disposes and adorns the edifices raised by man for whatsoever uses, that the sight of them contributes to his mental health, power and pleasure.
 
It is very necessary, in the outset of all inquiry, to distinguish carefully between Architecture and Building.

Lighthouses are great inventions. They lead us to safety out of terrible storms! The idea of Alexandria and its glorious library are a beacon in history for all of humanity to share. The encouragement of higher learning decreed by the Great Alexander is a worthy achievement for human beings to grow and share knowledge with each other. For me it is the single greatest endeavor for all mankind to acknowledge and glorify the great unknown. That whole idea is the greatest work of Architecture I've ever seen. Strange how it's destruction was so filled with hateful disregard. Ever since then its suppression has been filled with much prejudice. May this grand design for a city of cities be built again. 
 
So it shall be written, so it shall be done! Yeah.......right.......lofty dreams!

Oh, that's just nifty. Brings to mind 'The City of God' by St. Augustine framed with Dante's 'The Divine Comedy'.

Be wary of the enchantment. Stepping in time is a good thing for the show! It's also good to step out of time from time to time. So says the mime!

 

:Amen:

The John Ruskin links are interesting.
 
Useless adornment? I'm thinking otherwise. Adornments can be used as containers filled with symbolic meaning. Look at Egyptian architecture - All designed as books. The artistic endeavor was not useless in this sense.
 
Especially this one:
 
Forbidden Knowledge of Luxor Temple in Ancient Egypt 
 
Forbidden knowledge, which is different from secret knowledge, is used to describe forbidden books or other information to which access is restricted or deprecated for political or religious reasons. Forbidden knowledge is commonly not secret, rather a society or various institutions will use repressive mechanisms to either completely prevent the publication of information they find objectionable or dangerous (censorship), or failing that, to try to reduce the public's trust in such information (propaganda). Public repression can create paradoxical situation where the proscribed information is generally common knowledge but publicly citing it is disallowed.
 
 
 
The temple in man is built to glorify who? 
 
Built over a time scale of 30 Pharaohs contributing to its design. Then came Akhenaten the monotheist.....
