League of Occult Research & Education - Monthly Meetup

This month's meetup will be at:

Dirty Dave's Pizza
3939 Martin Way East
Olympia WA 98501
(360) 456-1560

7:00pm Pizza or munchies and/or drinks

We usually determine a meetup topic the month prior to the next meetup, except in the case of guest speakers. If you wish to present your book or topic please contact one of the organizers.

8:30pm Show & Tell and Show & ASK (folks bring object and group helps identify, like plants, gems, jewelry, photo, symbol, dream, etc.)

9:00pm Occult northwest news announcements & discussion

What is "show-and-ask"?
Occasionally someone will bring an object, book or other interesting artifact (or just a good story!) to share with the group for feedback, something they always wanted to figure out, get commentary on, insight, etc. (like a piece of jewelry that you dont know what the stones are in it, or a strange plant, or a dream you had that you would like help interpreting, etc.)

Note: Dirty Daves is a family friendly bar and pizza parlor.

    Lively. Discussed predictions in the larger social context, plus novel ways to go about predicting, such as computer data crunching to note trends, as well as computer application to artwork and imagery in an attempt to prognosticate. Usual humor and courtesy.

      What I thought was interesting was that LORE folks dismissed for example mundane conspiracy explanations for the cause of some recent mass mediated events, but was more open to entertaining the idea that any major mediated event could actually foreshadow future events, that there could be causality in that acting like an omen big future events are reflected in the present through culture, art, etc. The conspiracy explanations are hard or impossible to prove but are at least confined to the known accepted laws of the universe, while omens and such things are dismissed as coincidence and not proved by mainstream science. LORE it seems is more open to the possibility of omens versus conspiracy explanations, at least those who were present. Great discussion.

      To answer James, my feeling is the group is more willing to entertain a belief in omens because they are generally more vague and personal (and in the spiritual realm) while conspiracy theory explanations attempt to provide a reason for why things are happening in the present world reality, demanding a more vigorous examination of what is offered as evidence of how and why it is occurring. And to sometimes invoke Occam's razor in such situations.

    Can teenagers come ?

      We have had teenagers come in the past to both the meetups and the haunted investigations, with parent/guardian present during any field trips and with and without at the meetups. Dirty Daves asked us to keep any videos, slides and discussions to PG-13 and that has never been an issue, so yeah that would be fine. We've also had parents bring their kids who sat in and did their homework during the meetup thus allowing their parents to attend. Whatever works.
