The Book of Onei is an antinomian dream grimoire, providing deceptive yet true information about the art of Oneiromancy or dream magic in the form of poetry, fantasy, and intentionally ambiguous instructions.
1- the mundane
2- the curious
3- the mythic
4- the mysterium
5- a vision
6- an epiphany
Mundane dreams are those that come in through the Gates of Ivory; they contain no magic.
Curious dreams are intermingled with hints and glimpses of magic.
Mythic dreams come in through the Gates of Horn; they are dreams of true and sacred things presented in the form of myth.
Dreams of the mysterium involve magic power, a drunken electric ecstatic presence.
Visions display the vividness and intensity of the Phantasia Catalyptica.
Epiphanies answer great riddles and questions.
Annihilation destroys the dream. That which waits here is the same as that which waits beyond death.
– from The Book of Onei, Part 1: The Art of Night Wandering
