I would like to start by saying that the first class of Metaphysics 101 went better than I expected, and would like to thank everyone who attended the class. I know that I lost some of you on the topic and the first class may have been a little confusing for some, but that is why I think the class went great. There are several reasons for that.
First and foremost. Because the topic of Metaphysics is so large and somewhat confusing, it is important to give a base view of the whole picture. We are talking about how the Multiverse works and how you can directly influence it. Not just the how of magick, but the why it works and what magick is. With that knowledge, We can craft better actions and receive better results. We will go into more details about these concepts in later classes.
#2 Because this topic is so large, I needed to find out where the class was on your understanding of the topic, and you needed to know where I stood. Testing the waters, so to speak. Now knowing this, we may craft a better class to get better results.
#3 This class is for knowledge, and knowledge can take you out of your comfort zone. I know that during the classes, you are absorbing the knowledge from the class, and it will take days, if not weeks to digest all of this and form questions. This is what this discussion group is for. Comment below your questions, and we will take a crack at answering them. All of us. Please remember that you have experience and insight that no one else has, so you will only add to the groups understanding of the topic. We all have something we can add. And most importantly, the only wrong question is the unasked question.
#4 I see the need for handouts and thought experiments, so I will start providing these materials in the class. I also encourage you to take notes so you can look these things up yourself. The ability to research and verify information for yourself may be one of the most powerful tools at your disposal. Trust but verify.
#5 This is the first time I have taught anything in a classroom setting. So, like you, there will be a learning curve for me as well. Please help me out by giving me direct feedback on this class. One of the goals in this class is to design a workbook to help future students with this class. By your participation, you are helping to write this workbook.
#6 My goal is to provide the best form of education for my students. I have structured the claas like a collage course, complete with assignment and final project. There will be no grade for the class, for only you will know what you get out of the class. It is not up to me to judge your understanding of the class. There will be a certificate of completion for those who take all of the classes, participated in the discussion groups and completes the projects. You will also gain a support group that has a similar understanding of the topic. Whatever you do with it is up to you.
So let the fun begin… ask away… let me know what you think…
