books that changed your life
and a brief explination of why it should be read
I read it very young, and it filled me with a desire to learn more about my heritage and history. Also, it showed me that sacrifice was necessary to destroy evil sometimes, something that most modern texts don't say; now the good guy always wins.
you dont understand the idea behind asking /x/ for their favorite book
it would gain a entierly different set of answers than going to a board comprised of people reading just any bullshit
The Satanic Bible.
Summary: stopped caring about pleasing everyone, cut parasitic people from my life, focused on making myself happy instead.
95% of it I had already thought of throughout my life. It just gave me that extra 5% of "wow I never thought about it like that before."
I think he just wanted to list his favorite books, not help anyone!
I actually have that lying around in my attic, but I've never gotten around to reading it. Is it strictly occult stuff, or?
symbol and the symbolic - lubicz
explains pictographs and esoteric/exoteric philosophy with an introduction to hidden history. it explains a bit about consciousness, super advanced ancient humans, language being a degradation of telepathic communication and is very well written. it's dense to the point you'll have to read some sentences over and over again, but it's very intelligently written.
Nah its part science part occult part history. I really liked the history bits, so eventually i bought all his books haha.
I'd recommend it some bits are abit wording but generally a good read.
pic related is all the retarded poop jokes and monsturdation that /x/ REALLY wants. extremely recommended. Very funny, has you laughing one page, then frozen in horror the next.

>see crazy and stupid and horrifying ghosts and monsters and shit
sequel is This Book is Full of Spiders
go read it, trust me.
oh, and they made a movie out of it, but it wasn't really like the book at all. I got to see one of the first screenings and there was a Q&A with the director after and I very politely asked why is sucked so hard.
The movie was pretty lame, just read it
Zhuan Falun by Li Hongzhi
The most detailed book on qi gong, and the most popular practice world wide. If you're only going to read one book on the subject, this is the one.
The Lost Book of Enki.
This book has had a great influence in my life because it tied together soo many loose ends.
Its the entire history of the Anunna gods of Mesopotamia of which all the worlds religions are based.
You get to know so much about north korea and how horrible it really is there. It's also an very inspirational book. I cried atleast 10 times while reading the book.

Speak to my grandma at the expense of animals
Prometheus Rising : to make sense out of everything that didn't in my life before and consider many things under a new eye. Also because of my interest in magic/occultism, learned that I didn't need to use these tricks to be satisfied.
The secret language of the symbols : Shit is interesting yo. Plus, understanding that he who rules the symbols, rules the world.
House of leaves : both unsettling and interesting, questions many concepts such as space/time and also a fun read
Any book on the Mudras : helpfull way to go through minor health problems, even better if you practise meditation/yoga
I concur with this post.
>explains how science can become so advanced, it becomes magic to the uneducated
>uses religion to control a society as well as protect a society
>uses science to create trade between planets, creating advanced technology to have an upper hand in the solar system
Book is about a society of scientists, on both ends of the galaxy, trying to shorten the "galactic dark ages" that the human empire has brought upon itself. Pretty mind opening considering its a future version of all of our past influences and corruption. Science is badass.
