  The Magician s ompanion People tend to perceive the world in the light o their beliefs, attitudes, and knowledge, their models o reality. These models, or world views, affect how we are able to interact with the world around us. Our world changes as we change how we perceive it. In a sense, we create our reality each moment through our beliefs and how we symbolize them. We use symbols to communicate outwardly the inner structures o our world and our selves. Symbols are the medium in which most o us live our daily lives. The world that each o us perceives is our personal symbol o the Absolute, the noumenal reality underlying the empire o the senses. As the world enters the Information Age, it is now more vital then ever to understand the symbols o the shaman, the magician, the mystic, and the alchemist, for in these symbols can be seen the shape o the mind and soul o humanity. Magic is nothing more and nothing less than the collected techniques for changing the perceived world by changing ourselves and the symbols that we use to represent the world in consciousness. The word magic comes from the Persian word magia (equivalent to the Latin sapientia), which means knowing. Magic is the rt o Knowing, o creation, o transformation, and o life, which is the birthright o every human being. The Magician s Companion categorizes and cross-references the major magical symbol systems o the world, allowing the modern student to compare the structure o these systems and examine the methods o their use. A magical symbol system is one that describes an integrated and whole world view on both inner and outer levels. The Magician s Companion presents these systems or models in numerical order, each model being listed by the number o symbols that comprise it. This comprehensive book discusses and compares over 35 magical models ranging from Model 0 (concerning nothingness) to Model 91 (a description o the Enochian watchtowers and the 91 Enochian subaethyrs). Also included are discussions o the theory and practice o magic and ritual, suggested programs o study, an extensive glossary, and much, much more The magical knowledge o our ancestors comprises an intricate and elegant technology o the mind and imagination which could transform humanity and the world i it were reclaimed and synthesized for use in the present day. The Magician s Compan-  on attempts to make the ancient systems accessible, understandable, and useful to modem magicians. Students o religion and mysticism, mythology, symbolic art, literature, and even cryptography will also find this work o value.  About the Author Bill Whitcomb is in his early 30s and has been fascinated by magic, symbols, and language since childhood.
