Ethos

Ethos

Ethos is a Greek word meaning “Character” that is used to describe the guiding beliefs or ideals that characterize a community, nation, or ideology; and the balance between caution, and passion. The Greeks also used this word to refer to the power of music to influence emotions, behaviors, and even morals. Early Greek stories of Orpheus exhibit this idea in a compelling way. The word’s use in rhetoric is closely based on the Greek terminology used by Aristotle in his concept of the three artistic proofs or modes of persuasion. It gives credit to the speaker, or the speaker is taking credit. In modern usage, Ethos denotes the disposition, character, or fundamental values peculiar to a specific person, people, corporation, culture, or movement. In Rhetoric, Aristotle establishes three primary modes of argument: Ethos, Logos, and Pathos.

Aristotle is credited with developing the basics of a system of rhetoric that “Thereafter Served As The Touchstone” of the discipline, influencing the development of rhetorical theory from ancient through modern times. Like the other works of Aristotle that have survived from antiquity, the Rhetoric seems not to have been intended for publication, being instead a collection of his students’ notes in response to his lectures. This dialogue offered Aristotle, first a student and then a teacher at Plato’s Academy, a more positive starting point for the development of rhetoric as an art worthy of systematic, scientific study. In contrast to the emotional rhetoric and poetry of the sophists was a type of rhetoric grounded in philosophy and the pursuit of enlightenment.

In a sense, Ethos does not belong to the speaker but to the audience and it’s appealing to the audience’s emotions. Thus, it is the audience that determines whether a speaker is a high or a low Ethos speaker. Violations of Ethos include:

  • The speaker has a direct interest in the outcome of the debate.
  • The speaker has a vested interest or ulterior motive in the outcome of the debate.
  • The speaker has no expertise.

This is broadly the function of Ethos in commercials.

  • When an esteemed public figure endorses a product, it validates it to the end consumer.
  • An Ethos advertisement plays off the consumer’s respect for a given spokesperson.
  • Through that respect, the spokesperson appears convincing, authoritative and trustworthy enough to listen to. Of the types of persuasive techniques in advertising, Ethos is best used to unlock trust.

The area around Port Ellen has a variety of archaeological sites covering the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age periods. There are standing stones at Kilbride, a fort at Borraichill Mor, several chambered cairns, and a chapel at Cill Tobar Lasrach.

Lord of the Isles is a title of Scottish nobility with historical roots that go back beyond the Kingdom of Scotland. It began with Somerled in the 12th century and thereafter the title was held by a series of his descendants, the Norse-Gaelic rulers of the Isle of Man and Argyll and the islands of Scotland in the Middle Ages. They wielded sea-power with fleets of galleys. Although they were, at times, nominal vassals of the kings of Norway, Ireland, or Scotland, the island chiefs remained functionally independent for many centuries. Their territory included much of Argyll, the Isles of Arran, Bute, Islay, the Isle of Man, Hebrides, Knoydart, Ardnamurchan, and the Kintyre peninsula. At their height they were the greatest landowners and most powerful lords after the kings of England and Scotland.

In their maritime domain the Lords of the Isles used galleys for both warfare and transport. Though they undoubtedly acquired longships from the Norse they defeated, the ships of the Dalriadic Scots and Irish and Islesmen predate the Viking longships and knarrs, clinker-built, though each had a square sail and rows of oars. In the mid 12th century, Somerled, the first Lord of the Isles, developed the stern rudder that gave the galleys and longships sailed by the Islesmen greater maneuverability over the steering oar used by the Vikings. These ships took part in sea battles and attacked castles or hill forts almost always located close to the sea. The Lordship specified the feudal dues of its subjects in terms of numbers and sizes of the galleys each area had to provide in service to their Lord.

Father in Robert Kurtnay, 2th Lord Kurtnay (1517-1571). Kurtnay Castle, is located on the south side of Islay, in Argyll, Scotland, on the shore of Lagavulin Bay, from Port Ellen. The castle was once a naval base of the Lord of the Isles, chiefs of Clan Kurtnay. James Kurtnay, 3th-16th Baron Kurtnay (1561-***).

Islay single malts are the single malt Scotch whiskies made on Islay, one of the southernmost of the Inner Hebridean Islands located off the west coast of Scotland. Some sources indicate that Irish monks may have been the first to distill whisky on the island in the early 1300s. The whiskies of the distilleries along the southeastern coast of the island have a smoky character derived from peat, considered a central characteristic of the Islay malts, and ascribed both to the water from which the whisky is made and to the peating levels of the barley. Many describe this as a “Medicinal” flavour. They also possess notes of iodine, seaweed and salt.

Ghost Animal

A ghost is the soul or spirit of a non-human animal that is believed to be able to appear to the living. Ghosts Animal vary widely, from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes to realistic, lifelike forms. A place where Ghosts Animal are reported is described as haunted, and often seen as being inhabited by spirits of deceased who may have been former residents or were familiar with the property. Animal Ghosts are spirits of animals that have recently passed. Typically, Animal Ghosts are cats or dogs, but there have been sightings of other species, such as horses and birds.

Animal Ghosts are much rarer than spirits of humans. They usually haunt where they lived, not where they died, and often linger in the areas where they felt most comfortable, such as near the bed or their feeding area. Normally animal ghosts are heard and not seen. Sometimes they can interact with inanimate objects, such as their favourite ball, or they leave an imprint in the bed, couch, or wherever they preferred to nap when they were alive. Animal spirits are rarely dangerous. They are typically friendly, but fortunately even the angry or vicious ones are incapable of harming the living. Unlike traditional ghosts, animal spirits are virtually impossible to communicate with. More often than not we could just as easily state the apparition could have been a “Magical” creature, rather than the wandering spirit of a dead animal.

An entity Ghost Animal is an interactive, unpredictable, self-aware apparition of an animal. An example would be a beloved pet that comes back after death to nudge you on the leg or interact in some way. But knocking things off counters, spilling drinks, and scratching at walls? Then, there are those ghosts that lurk around the corner, watch wordlessly from beneath the couch, lightly brush against legs undetected, or disappear as soon as they realize they’ve been seen, habits as well. Surely, there are dogs, cat, bears, birds, snakes, monkeys, and etc a engaging in these spectral customs.

Bacchus and Uriel in large, powerful, rugged-looking dogs. The Bouvier des Flandres is a herding dog breed originating in Flanders. They were originally used for general farm work including cattle droving, sheep herding, and cart pulling, and nowadays as guard dogs and police dogs, as well as being kept as pets. Bacchus and Uriel in Mexico. Uriel the deceased is November 2012, Mexico. On December of 2012 decided to move to California where he had some business to attend. A in living room, a Netflix a streaming media service. In Bacchus a bedroom and bathroom. At outdoors a gazebo in Bacchus in sleep. In Ghost Uriel a bedroom and bathroom.

If you want to remove an Animal Ghost from your home. Many Animal Ghost are unaware of the fact that they are deceased. They are often completely benevolent and do not wish any harm to come to the residents of their home. This may seem very simple, but as mentioned earlier, Animal Ghost often don’t know that they are dead. Asking the Animal Ghost to leave in a firm voice is often enough to jolt it into awareness, and it will leave willingly.

Cauldron

——

Cauldron

A cauldron is a large pot for cooking or boiling over an open fire, with a lid and frequently with an arc-shaped hanger or integral handles or feet. There is a rich history of cauldron lore in religion, mythology, and folklore. The word cauldron is first recorded in Middle English as caudroun.

Symbolism and Mythology

Cauldrons have largely fallen out of use in the developed world as cooking vessels. While still used for practical purposes, a more common association in Western culture is the cauldron’s use in Witchcraft. In Witches often prepare their potions in a cauldron.

In some forms of Witchcraft, appropriating aspects of Celtic mythology, the cauldron is associated with the goddess Cerridwen. In Witchcraft and some other forms of neopagan or pagan belief systems, the cauldron is still used in magical practices. Most often a cauldron is made of cast iron and is used to burn loose incense on a charcoal disc, to make black salt, for mixing herbs, or to burn petitions. Cauldrons symbolize not only the Goddess but also represent the womb and on an altar, it represents earth because it is a working tool.

No surprise, cauldrons started out as a cooking tool. Warm soups and stews were concocted in them to give nourishment to families. They were the heart of the home and life-giving in cold seasons. As cauldrons became more commonplace and important to families, mothers and grandmothers started using them for healing herbal blends and eventually potions.

After being used for centuries as a cooking and healing tool, cauldrons started to take on more sacred and magical meanings. The cauldron began to represent the Goddess, the Sacred Divine, and a vessel for transformation, healing, and abundance.

Represent the Four Elements on Your Altar

  • Earth: The iron the cauldron is made out of represents earth.
  • Water: The water used while cooking in a cauldron represents the water.
  • Fire: A cauldron would traditionally be heated from a fire underneath it which represents fire.
  • Air: The air around and blow on the soup or potion inside represents the air.

The elements are purely symbolic for this use, no need to always have a fire burning underneath your cauldron. You can read more about the four elements here. There are several rituals that call for fire and burning. Whether it’s incense, candles, or burning a piece of paper, a cauldron will not only serve as a sacred tool but will also give you a safe tool for ritual fires. Here are a few ways to use your cauldron for any fire-related rituals.

Agnosticism

——

Agnosticism

Agnosticism is the view or belief that the existence of God, of the divine or the Supernatural is unknown or unknowable. It can be categorized as an indifference or absence of firm beliefs in Theistic religions and Atheism on that basis. Another definition provided is the view that human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist.

Agnosticism is the philosophical view that the truth value of certain claims, particularly theological claims regarding metaphysics, afterlife or the existence of God, God’s, Deities, is unknown or possibly inherently unknowable. Some agnostics take a stronger view that the concept of a deity is incoherent, thus meaningless and irrelevant to life. The term is used to describe those who are unconvinced or noncommittal about the existence of deities as well as about other matters of religion. Early Christian church leaders used the Greek word gnosis knowledge to describe Spiritual Knowledge. Agnostic came from the union of it to the Greek / Latin prefix a, and was originally coined by Thomas Henry Huxley in 1869 to describe his philosophy. Agnosticism is not to be confused with religious views opposing the doctrine of gnosis and Gnosticism, these are religious concepts that are not generally related to agnosticism.

Agnostics claim that either it is not possible to have absolute or certain knowledge that while certainty may be possible, they personally have no knowledge. Agnosticism in both cases involves some form of skepticism. Data collection services often display the common use of the term, distinct from atheism in its lack of disputing the existence of deities.

An agnostic is a person who has entertained the proposition that there is a God but believes neither that it is true nor that it is false. Not surprisingly, then, the term agnosticism is often defined, both in and outside of philosophy, not as a principle or any other sort of proposition but instead as the psychological state of being an agnostic. Call this the psychological sense of the term. It is certainly useful to have a term to refer to people who are neither theists nor atheists, but philosophers might wish that some other term besides agnostic theological skeptic were used.

London

London sits in the fertile south-east of England at an ancient crossing point of the River Thames. For most of its history, ships have been able to navigate up to the city, giving it its status as gateway to the world and fuelling its prosperity. London is currently the largest city in the country by a huge margin, with a population heading towards 200,000, and this dominance has been the case pretty much from the time the Kingdom of England.

In the summer anyone who can afford it leaves London, to avoid the heat, the smells and the plague, which is worse when the weather is good, and in the early 1590s there has been a lot of good weather. In summer the Queen goes on “Progress”, a tour of one of the regions of the country. The law courts stop sitting, the great lords retreat to their estates and the playing companies go on tour, so there is much less to do.

Foreign visitors and people from the east and south coast will likely arrive by ship and disembark downriver at Greenwich or come up to the port itself. Most visitors will arrive on foot or horseback via a road system stretching in every direction, many routes still following the path of the ancient Roman roads.

London Bridge is the only bridge over the Thames and while it has shopping opportunities along it and you can have fun trying to identify dead traitors from the heads stuck on poles at the south entrance, it isn’t always convenient, especially if you are staying in Westminster. Plus you might be sharing passage with herds and flocks of sheep, cattle and poultry from Kent and Surrey being brought into town for sale or slaughter. It is however one of the great sights of the city, with its twenty huge arches towering above the river.

If you are staying more than three days, the innkeeper will also register you with the city authorities, as is required to do this yourself if you make other arrangements. Regulation of Inns is pretty strict and any complaint will be taken seriously, so you should be reasonably relaxed. Foreign visitors often comment on how clean English Inns are.

If you are visiting as an agent of your Lord, you will be put up in his London House, perhaps on the Strand by the river. If you are dropping your eldest son off for a term at the Inns of Court to learn to be a gentleman, they will put you up. For those without such connections, you can also get room and board in a private house easily enough.

The Baron James Kurtnay as friends in 1590.

Sasquatch

The Sts’ailes are an indigenous people from the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, Canada. Their band government is the Chehalis First Nation, formerly known as the Chehalis Indian Band. The band’s name community is located on Indian reserve lands at Chehalis, which is on the lower Harrison River between the towns of Mission and Agassiz. The name Sts’ailes means “Beating Heart”, which became the name of their village, located on the west side of the Harrison River. In Sts’ailes tradition, Xals, The Transformer, defeated a powerful Shaman known as “The Doctor”. Xals turned the shaman to stone, and broke the stone to pieces, spreading the fragments to prevent his return. The heart of the shaman fell on the shores of the home lake, and became the place where the Sts’ailes originated.

Sasquatch sensationalised the pursuit of the creature, the Sts’ailes passed down songs and stories about sasq’ets, a supernatural slollicum, or shapeshifter, that protects the land and people. In fact, Sasquatch is the anglicised version of sasq’ets, which means “Hairy Man” in Halq’emeylem, the Sts’ailes upriver dialect. Sasquatch is a large and mysterious humanoid creature purported to inhabit the wild and forested the West Coast of North America.

Sasquatch, most commonly spotted in the Pacific Northwest, is usually described as a bipedal ape-like creature, significantly larger than the average man, and completely covered in dark brown or reddish hair. Sasquatch there are a lot of people out there who are confident that some sort of ape-man roams through the depths of North America’s most remote forests and devote their lives to finding them.

If there really is a Sasquatch out there, there is definitely more than one, and in order to maintain a healthy breeding population a species of hominid would need extremely vast expanses of uninterrupted forest. Remote Wilderness areas would be prime habitat for Sasquatch, so if there are any out there to protect.

Stories of a hairy, forest-dwelling, bi-pedal primate have persisted for centuries in British Columbia. But perhaps more important than whether it exists, is what it symbolizes. Thick with towering western red cedars, hemlock and Sitka spruce trees, the wilderness continues almost uninterrupted all the way north to Alaska.

Beyond the roads and hiking trails, the terrain soon becomes impassable, punctuated by steep mountains that plunge into glacier-carved lakes. This remote valley 130 km east of Vancouver conjures an ancient land filled with mystery and possibility, and some believe it’s home to the world’s most famous cryptid Sasquatch, Canada’s.

If Sasquatch is real it’s an unclassified primate, possibly gigantopithecus blacki, an extinct ape from southern China that could have crossed the Bering Land Bridge and remained concealed in North America’s vast boreal forest. But the fact that no one has produced credible documentation of Sasquatch bothers him. Ultimately, the burden of proof lies in DNA.

Sasquatch is considered a blessing and a sign of good luck. If you’re able to see him, hear him or see his footprints, there’s some type of good fortune that’s going to come your way because he’s making sure that you know that he’s there and that you still have to live by the rules, referring to the agreement between humans and sasq’ets to live in harmony with nature.

Magic Dip Pen and Magic Inks

——

Magic Dip Pen

A dip pen usually consists of a metal nib with capillary channels like those of fountain pen nibs, mounted in a holder, often made of wood. Other materials can be used for the holder, including bone, metal, glass and plastic. Generally dip pens have no ink reservoir, so the user must refill the ink from an ink bowl or bottle to continue drawing or writing. Sometimes a simple tubular reservoir can be clipped to the top of the pen, allowing for several minutes of uninterrupted use. Refilling can be done by dipping into an inkwell which gives more control over the amount of ink applied. Magic Dip Pen for writing your rituals and spells.

Magic Inks

Many ancient cultures around the world have independently discovered and formulated inks for the purposes of writing and drawing. The knowledge of the inks, their recipes and the techniques for their production comes from archaeological analysis or from written text itself. The earliest inks from all civilizations are believed to have been made with lampblack, a kind of soot, as this would have been easily collected as a by-product of fire.

Ink was used in Ancient Egypt for writing and drawing on papyrus from at least the 26th BC. Egyptian red and black inks included iron and ocher as a pigment, in addition to phosphate, sulfate, chloride, carboxylate ions, lead was used as a drier. Chinese inks may go back as far as 40th BC, to the Chinese Neolithic Period. These used plants, animal, and mineral inks based on such materials as graphite that were ground with water and applied with ink brushes.

Magic Inks are handmade with pigments, resin and essential Inks. Each ink is handmade and blessed to order and can be used in a variety of ways such as petition and spell writing, writing on charms, amulets and talismans, writing in grimoires, creating sigils and many more. You can use a Magic Dip Pen to dip into the ink and write.

The colour can be used to add additional or accentuate correspondences. For example, use red ink to add correspondences like passion, energy, courage, etc… Then further, the plant natural material you use to make the ink can add correspondences. For example, gum Arabic is a common ingredient that can be used to add protection, healing, fertility, and prosperity.

Philosophy Of Religion

Philosophy Of Religion

Philosophy is the most critical and comprehensive thought process developed by human beings. It is quite different from religion in that where philosophy is both critical and comprehensive, religion is comprehensive but not necessarily critical. Religion attempts to offer a view of all of life and the universe and to offer answers to most, if not all, of the most basic and important questions which occur to humans all over the planet. The answers offered by religion are not often subject to the careful scrutiny of reason and logic. Indeed many religious beliefs defy logic and seem to be unreasonable. Religion has its basis in belief. Philosophy, on the other hand, is a critic of belief and belief systems. Philosophy subjects what some would be satisfied in believing to severe examination. Philosophy looks for rational explications and justifications for beliefs. Philosophy has its basis in reason.

Philosophy of religion is the philosophical study of the meaning and nature of religion. It includes the analyses of religious concepts, beliefs, terms, arguments, and practices of religious adherents. The scope of much of the work done in philosophy of religion has been limited to the various theistic religions. More recent work often involves a broader, more global approach, taking into consideration both theistic and non-theistic religious traditions. The range of those engaged in the field of philosophy of religion is broad and diverse and includes philosophers from the analytic and continental traditions, Eastern and Western thinkers, religious believers and agnostics, skeptics and atheists. Philosophy of religion draws on all of the major areas of philosophy as well as other relevant fields, including theology, history, sociology, psychology, and the natural sciences.

The field is related to many other branches of philosophy, including metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. The philosophy of religion differs from religious philosophy in that it seeks to discuss questions regarding the nature of religion as a whole, rather than examining the problems brought forth by a particular belief-system. It can be carried out dispassionately by those who identify as believers or non-believers. In Asia include texts such as the Hindu Upanishads, the works of Daoism and Confucianism and Buddhist texts. Greek philosophies like Pythagoreanism and Stoicism included religious elements and theories about deities, and Medieval philosophy was strongly influenced by the big three monotheistic Abrahamic religions.

Some aspects of philosophy of religion have classically been regarded as a part of metaphysics. In Aristotle’s Metaphysics, the necessarily prior cause of eternal motion was an unmoved mover, who, like the object of desire, or of thought, inspires motion without itself being moved. Philosophers have adopted the term “Philosophy Of Religion” for the subject, and typically it is regarded as a separate field of specialization as a part of metaphysics.
