Occult studies course questions

Please read this note BEFORE you attempt the test

If you have completed our occult studies course you are invited to send us your answers to the following questions in your own words. You should try to make your answers as short and concise as possible. Please take your time, thinking carefully about each question. If you have NOT read and understood ALL the articles in the course it is a waste of your and our time to take this test. It is not a 'quiz' to show how clever you are. Nor is it intended to show how clever we are. It serves a far deeper and more important purpose, which is to help YOU to learn the basic principles of occult science and fix them firmly in your mind.

Although our studies course is self-contained, you can find additional information about the subjects discussed in our many articles. To look up any subject you are unclear about, use our search facility to find the topics that interest you. That way you will be better prepared to take this test. After you have submitted this form to us we will send you a list of the correct answers, so that you will have a résumé of the complete course and a useful reference of everything you have learned from it. But...we will NOT send the answers to you if you have simply skimmed through one or two articles in the hope of learning the answers! We hope it will be clear to you that this is NOT the way to learn anything, least of all occult science.

Unfortunately webmail providers such as Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Hotmail, and even so-called 'secure' services such as Protonmail and Tutanota, now routinely treat all incoming email which is from an unknown sender as spam. If you think this may have happened to you please look in your spam folder. If you still can't find a reply from us contact us via our Facebook page and we will do our best to help you resolve the problem.
