We believe that George R. R. Martin has put a lot of effort and thought into creating a deeper dimension of archetype and symbol in his writing. He’s created connections between past and future, between sky and ground. He’s built on classic figures from world mythology and twisted them around in new and incredible ways to fashion his own archetypal characters whose divine roles are played out by the characters in the story. He’s done all of this not only to be artistic and clever, but because he’s actually participating in a grand tradition of esoteric, symbolic art. Keeping this tradition alive is of critical importance and tremendous value to society, and that is why I believe this facet of A Song of Ice and Fire is so worthy of study. This podcast is intended to be our vehicle to explore these inner workings, and it is fueled by enthusiasm, yours and mine.

    The Bloodstone Emperor Azor Ahai (Bloodstone Compendium 2)

    The Bloodstone Emperor Azor Ahai (Bloodstone Compendium 2)

    The legend of Azor Ahai says that he cracked the moon when he forged Lightbringer. Does this make Azor Ahai "the bad guy?" He stabbed his wife too, and to work blood magic. Is blood magic heroic, or abomination? And what's with this Bloodstone Emperor guy, who worshiped a black meteor during the Long Night? Is there a link between this black meteor, the meteors of the moon explosion, and the greasy black stone? And what does this tell us about the nature of Lightbringer?

    It Please Me to Hold Them Safe: Daenerys Targaryen in AGOT

    It Please Me to Hold Them Safe: Daenerys Targaryen in AGOT

    Recorded live Dec 22nd, 2019. The first of 4 podcasts designed to set the record straight concerning the true character of Daenerys Targaryen. This first podcast will discuss all her key character-building and character-revealing moments from A Game of Thrones, with subsequent pods to cover the other books of A Song of Ice and Fire that she is in. If you were unhappy with her ending on the HBO show, take heart. There is reason to believe she is not headed for the same fate in the books. One note: we will be discussing scenes of sexual violence and rape (with appropriate tact and care, of course), so please make sure you're prepared for such discussion before playing, and probably don't play this one around the kiddos. Thanks to everyone who came out and made this stream a success, and the next one is scheduled for Sunday, January 5th, on the lucifermeanslightbringer YouTube channel.

    Hodors of Perception LIVE (11/10/19)

    Hodors of Perception LIVE (11/10/19)

    Recorded live Sunday Nov 10th, this live discussion follows up on the topics in King Bran: The God-on-Earth and opens new Ho-doors of inquiry into the nature of Bran's kingship and the overall endgame of A Song of Ice and Fire. What will happen when Bran and Dany's plots converge in the books? What role will the maesters play in all this? We even had a fun deviation into Lady Stoneheart's cave to speculate on Jaime and Brienne's fate. Thanks to everyone that came out!

    King Bran 3: The God-on-Earth

    King Bran 3: The God-on-Earth

    Why should Bran Stark be King of Westeros? It's going to make more sense in the books, my friends, because Bran's greenseer magic will be much more important in the books - not only to defeat the others, but also use the knowledge of the weirwood to pull a "Bran-the-REbuilder" act for a Westeros in dire need. Above all, Bran should be king because he is the Prometheus of this story - the one who brings the fire of the gods to mankind, and specifically to **aid**mankind.
