So far, remotely done power and glory as via government, big business, formal education, church has succeeded to the point where gross obscure actual gains. In response to this dilemma and to these gains a realm of intimate, personal power is developing power of the individual to conduct his own education, find his own inspiration, shape his own environment, and share his adventure with whoever is interested.”

For hundreds of years the tarot have been used as a form of clairvoyance. The new age movements have shifted its meanings and methods and diluted it to a form of fortune telling. But when we explore the genesis of the cards we see that the cards can actually be used for the present. A question is asked and the cards can be deciphered to gather a better insight into the event or issue. With this in mind I wish to use the cards as a method of research, reassigning the meanings and symbolism to new philosophies and events that at first may seem distant and unrelated but with methods such as non linear thinking I wish to create a new method of researching that applies to modern subjects such as the internet, post truth and the dark arts.
