While I've managed to set up a few of my own, I honestly have no clue on how to consciously set something like this up, as in the mechanical aspect of it... ..subconsciously though, well.. i'm not going to be cutting my hair anytime in the near future. Any ideas?
It sounds to be a form of sympathetic magic in some abstract way, but i'm not really sure on that.. as i wrote earlier, it seems awfully similar to a geas but there is enough of a difference between the two in my perception whereas what I'm describing seems to be more voluntary whereas a geas seems to be more like a form of binding. splitting hairs?
furthermore how can you tell the difference between whats a taboo and what isn't? For instance, "if i shave only half of my face, the stoplights will be green when I get to them" is a clear instance of a magical taboo, but what about "if i refrain from eating the flesh of animals, i'll remain spiritually potent"? Is that a cultural taboo or is it an actuality? A taboo so strongly followed that it became truth?
so, any info on this would be greatly appreciated..
