MesmerIt's midnight, so here we go with a new Magic Monday. The picture is of Franz Anton Mesmer, Austrian physician, occultist and Rosicrucian initiate, who publicized "animal magnetism" in late 18th-century France -- yes, that's pronounced "ki" in Japanese and "nwyfre" in old-fashioned literary Welsh. After his death, his system of energy work was stripped of its occult dimensions and of every reference to the life force to produce the first draft of what we now call "hypnotism." 

Ask me anything about occultism and I'll do my best to answer it. Any question received by midnight Monday Eastern time will get an answer, though it may be Tuesday sometime before I get to them all. If you're in a hurry, or suspect you may be the 712,874th person to ask a question, please check out the very rough version 1.0 of The Magic Monday FAQ here.

I've had several people ask about tipping me for answers here, and though I certainly don't require that I won't turn it down. You can use the button below to access my online tip jar.

With that said, have at it!

***This Magic Monday is now closed to new questions. See you next week!***
