“The “Realms Invisible” are the parts of the Fallen World that are separated from the Realms Supernal by the Abyss, but are clearly supernatural in origin and under normal circumstances inaccessible for Sleepers."
Are these realm locations or simply constructs of our minds? How might one be able to travel there using the Astral Travel merit/talent.. why is there so much talk about strange and dealy creatures from these Astral Realms…
Astral Space is the non-corporeal regions — the Realms Invisible — of the Mage Cosmology defined by the minds, ideas, thoughts, and emotions of beings within the Fallen World. It may have at one point contained, included, or bordered upon the Supernal Realms, although it is now separated from them by the Abyss. It contains three main Astral Stratum, or levels: The Oneiros, which is a unique reflection of every person’s mind, the Temenos, a reflection of the minds of all mankind, and the Anima Mundi, which is a reflection of ideal forms and essences of the natural world.
The Mastigos, through their mastery over the Arcanum of Mind, are the Path who deal the most with this realm.
