Recently, I was initiated into the degree of Minerval in OTO. I obviously can’t say much about what happened, but I think it is worth mentioning, for those interested:
- It was not what I expected
- I *loved* it
- I believe it was effective
My stay at Pyramid Lodge, as always, was quite pleasant. The environment always carries an intellectual and hospitable feel. It is the kind of place where you can grow because there is constant intellectual stimulation, and no unnecessary bounds or groupthink (beyond the egregore — which is a good thing). After returning home, I feel like a lot of the creativity has stuck with me, and I am constantly coming up with new ideas and challenging old ones in much the same way as my brothers at the lodge were doing. This is certainly a welcome change from my current, stagnant environment wherein everybody spends their whole waking life watching TV when they’re not working.
For those considering OTO, I would definitely recommend you look into it first-hand, ignoring the internet drama and finding out for yourself. Isn’t this what the method of science is all about?
