The Tractatus is largely an exploration of what is commonly referred to on CEO blog as accretive theory, or pneuminous accretive theory. The basic notion is that that phenomenologically paranormality is best disclosed by substantialised conceptuality, referred to in the text as ‘pneuma’. The book details the implication of certain occult appearances and how they create epistemological challenges that we often try to brush over. Pneuma and its correlate, the umbratic are simply notions that appear when one accepts a certain relativisation of the phenomena.

“The problem of paranormality is a thorn in the side of philosophy. It makes Cartesian doubt look like viable worry. Ensconced in its own dream of solid world rationality, philosophy fails to pay attention to the fact that psychological explanations for paranormal phenomena are not proof that the psychological explanations are correct. Whilst the Tractatus in no way says that
paranormality actually obtains, what it is does say is that we cannot extirpate the experience of paranormality from our lives. Furthermore, since we cannot remove the phenomena with a
materialist ontology, we should at least consider what the alternative would look like.
The Tractatus is largely concerned with exploring this alternative ontology -whilst accepting it is potentially just an appearance. Taking cues from chaos magickal insights and grounding itself in
the experience of paranormality (taking synchronicity as a key example) the book suggests active conceptuality (or pneuma as it is named herein) is the necessary condition for such phenomena to occur. The implications of accepting this kind of ‘substantial conceptuality’ are then variously explored both in relation to paranormality and regular philosophy. The result suggests a philosophy that seamlessly fuses a magickal interpretation of existence with the regular everyday one.”
