Nobody finds my treatise on the name Magus interesting, eh?


When my work weeks goes down from the current 72 hours to a more managable 40, I'll take a look.


Ai! That must be most difficulty, indeed!


The work is easy, and the pay is good. The trouble, to quote Blade Runner, is that "I want more life, fucker" and it doesn't really leave me much opportunity for that.

The Magus stuff is interesting...But the fact that Magus is just his American translation name always made me less interested in it's origins and such...

Serge
Serge is Russian for servant
:picardno Чушь. Bullshit. I'm russian so just believe me.  It's french name. But. In Russia this is Sergei. And sometimes we pronounce it on french manner :)

=Sonja

Wind goddess from Russian lore

Maybe. But it's actually more friendly-less official variation of Sophya(Sophia). Just like Cat from Catherine, Jenny from Jennifer and Susy from Susan.

Regarding the real world definition of Mammon, a false god of wealth or wealth as evil, and that in Hebrew the word means money or wealth, is it possible that Magus calling himself Prophet was a pun? Profit?

That would be hilarious, and considering the other Ted Woolsey-isms (Slash, Flea, Ozzie, etc.), I wouldn't put it past him.
