The Nietzschemanteion is a bibliomacy system. It is at once a machine of the cut-up technique, a means of divination, and a channel to the dead. It is an oracle composed of fragmentary lines from the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, especially as found in The Birth of Tragedy and Ecce Homo. It is an expression of the eternal return, the return of the same but slightly different. It is a gesture toward chance, spirit, and the unknown. It is a powerful friend.
Sapphomanteion, a lesbian oracle:
A new divination system based on ancient Greco-Egyptian bibliomancy as preserved in the Magical Papyri, created using Anne Carson’s translation of Sappho’s fragments. This lesbian oracle is a powerful tool for connecting with Venus, Aphrodite and the queer dead.
