9781932857207: Generation Hex

If the modern world is crumbling, then magic is what’s growing up between the cracks. In Generation Hex, editor Jason Louv assembles a collection of dispatches from the edge—a generation of young adults who are inventing and imagining radically new directions for spirituality and human evolution.

Arising from the magical and occult underground of the early twenty-first century, the authors, artists, thinkers, and magicians assembled in Generation Hex collectively point the way to a future in which fanaticism and dogma have disappeared, in which human beings are free to realize their own destinies, and where the theory and practical applications of magic—the psychic ability of all human beings to engage and participate with the creative energy of the universe itself—-saturate and regenerate this troubled planet.

Through critical essays and practical demonstrations of how a positive interaction with the occult, esoteric, and psychic undercurrents of human life can radically alter one’s existence, the young magicians collected here provide a collective snapshot of a dramatically new way forward for global culture as it emerges from the fringes and into the mainstream, from counterculture to ultraculture.

Generation Hex offers the reader an excursion into the lives and practices of real-life Harry Potters, young men and women who practice real magic, here stripped of its sinister trappings and revealed to be what it truly is—the key to human evolution. Generation Hex provides a blueprint for escaping the suicidal rut of modern life and the radical redesign of the very essence of what it means to be human.

Jason Louv is a New York-based writer and editor. He has spent the last six years researching and practicing magic, being initiated into various questionable secret societies, traveling around the Near East, and learning how to cloud minds. This is his first book.

From the Back Cover:

A collection of essays, both practical and autobiographical, which explore the overwhelming levels of interest in magic and shamanism in youth culture. "These are the voices of the real Harry Potters, delivering the urgent, supercharged manifestos of a new Ultraculture. This is their world and Generation Hex is your invitation to the Party that might just bring the house down." - Grant Morrison

"Wow, a book that gives the reader insights into how magic is actually lived. Generation Hex explodes with the energy and enthusiasm of its contributors: their highs and lows, their encounters with the weird and wonderful, the collisions of dream and daring with daily life. This book kicks major ass!"

– Phil Hine, author, Condensed Chaos and Prime Chaos

"As the Aeon of the fiery young god Horus gets off to an explosive start, Jason Louv has compiled these amazing true life adventures of fearless young magicians on the front lines of the Twenty-First Century Magical Renaissance to remind us that the only true and worthwhile rebellion is against everything you were ever told to believe. What is magic really? And how can it work for you? At a time of global change and crisis, this incendiary, inspirational book can show you how to step out of the turmoil, seize control of your own destiny and participate in the creation of a whole new world.

"These are the latest alumni of an Invisible College that grows more and more tangible with each passing day. These are the voices of the real Harry Potters, delivering the urgent, supercharged manifestos of a new Ultraculture. This is their world and Generation Hex is your invitation to the Party that might just bring the house down."

– Grant Morrison, author, The Invisibles and The Filth

"Nothing could be more crucial at this moment in time than to create a manual of techniques for psychic and physical survival. Generation Hex reasserts the essential place of magic in our interaction with the universe."

– Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, cultural engineer, pandrogyne, lead singer, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and Thee Majesty
