This book is not focused on current events or the specifics of Pepe (arguably related to an Egyptian god of chaos named Kek), but instead on the principles of visioning and "chaos magick." He discusses the power of our unconscious mind, and suggests that the use of visualization is a way to tap into that power and help make things happen in our lives that we might not know how to consciously manifest.
I'm only somewhat familiar with the principles involved, but I was struck by several things about this book. One: Carver's writing is eminently clear. He's a smart guy discussing somewhat esoteric concepts, but he speaks plainly, and with only as much complexity is necessary to convey his points.
Two: he usefully provides several explanations for why we may be able to imagine new circumstances into existence, a "rational," "Intuitive," "quantum," and "magical" explanation. In other words, he empathizes with the audience, anticipates objections, and meets them from several angles. He wants to bring us along for the journey and knows that readers with different philosophical and epistemological starting points may need different entry points to comfortably proceed along.
Three: the guide is eminently practical. It provides a philosophic basis, but encourages the reader to action, and provides a template for begin a "magical" practice and tap into our potential. Tips for entering the appropriate mental state, and avoiding pitfalls and nay-saying doubts are as important for the successful would-be practitioner as tips to get started.
A great book, easily read. Check it out and start putting these ideas into practice. After all, what is there to lose?
As a scholar of ancient philosophy and mystics I can say this short work is perfectly in line with the notion of "mundus imaginalis" and with methods such as the spiritual exercises of St.Inigo of Loyola.
I recommend the books "Creative Imagination" by Henry Corbin for those interested in the spiritual and philosophical side, and "Psychocybernetics" for those interested in the psychological part.
