Holy hell, are you ready for a next-level deep dive into the world of the occult, mysticism, rune stones, uthark divination, futhark divination, and all the things? On this week’s episode of Lost Origins, that’s exactly what goes down. Andrew and CK are joined by Dr. Thomas Karlsson for a deep dive into the occult and Dr. Karlsson does not disappoint. Dr. Karlsson rips your two favorite nerds through his work, which explores the practice of the Uthark divination system encoded within the traditional exoteric Futhark system of reading the runes, his research that traces the relationship between the rune stones and numerology, the Cabbala, alchemy, Gothicism, and sigil magic, and how his years of experience examines the history of the runes and the ancient spiritual mysticism of Odin.
Thomas Karlsson, Ph.D., is the founder of the esoteric order Dragon Rouge and Head of Ordo Draconias. He is the senior lecturer in history, religion, and philosophy at Stockholm University, fellow researcher at Yale University, and director of the Esoteric Crossroads conferences in Capri, Italy. The author of Cabbala, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic and Amongst Mystics and Magicians in Stockholm, he lives in Tumba, Sweden.
