A Hermit Amongst the Heathens: A Thelemic Perspective of the Parliament of the World’s Religions.
Having attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 2015, Frater Palamedes Ardentis will deliver a report of the esteemed conference, along with offering the Thelemic perspective of its main objectives and answering any questions that local members may have about the Parliament. The case will also be made that in order for Thelema to catapault itself to a proper world religious/philosophical system, we must enter the wider scheme of inter-religious dialogue, greater humanitarian efforts, and a visible and strong presence at events such as the Parliament of the World’s Religions.
Frater Palamedes Ardentis, also known as Brother Pablo, considers himself many things, including performer, poet, wild fanboy, sometimes scholar/always student, agitator, bard-magus, and whatever else he comes up with. A true lover of Freedom and Passion, he champions love and unity, liberty and danger, creativity and aesthetics. Initiated into the OTO in 2014 at Scarlet Woman Lodge in the Valley of Austin in Texas, he has dedicated his passion and will towards aiding the goals of this esteemed organization. Amongst other things, he’s a cinephile, voracious reader, an insatiable student of the esoteric and an avid gamer (tabletop/video). Born alongside the Panama Canal, he strangely does not like extreme heat and views his perfect weather to be something akin to Fimbulwinter, but he definitely is a child of the Caribbean, with all of its mystic glory, tropical paradises and delicious culinary trappings. Pablo spends his time traversing various underground and subcultural communities, ranging from Science-Fiction and Fantasy fandom, unsanctioned parties and kink events to Underground Rap and radical bookstores to, of course, magical lodges and mystic circles.
