I love it! Are you still gonna include the spiral dynamics as we talked about, or did you basically include all of it above?

A few comments, if I may, since this is the comments section and all:

I truly love the triplicity in your model.

I really loved your "Religious Form" section--most excellent! I would only perhaps change the terms a bit. Definitely "Natural Magick" near the Alpha, I like "Empty Mysticism", but I'd change "Deity Mysticism" to "Deity (something else)" in the middle. I.e., I'd use "Mysticism" only on the Omega end, and "Magic(k)" on the Alpha end.

I really liked the Set and Setting inclusion, and my first thought of the "?" was, "Chance", randomness, chaos, etc.

I'm not sure I'd agree with all of your Asstrologickal attributions, but to be fair, asstrologoy has never been one of my favorite Tools.

Whoa!
Hey, this is awesome!! :O I just got my LJ account and I'm not much interested into the whole blogging/journalling thing, but doing a search for occultism some of your work showed up and it really looks amazing - the diagrams and everything.

I don't have a very clear idea of what's this integral magick bussiness, but it does seem to my tastes.
