Occultic knowledge
Arcane knowledge, which includes knowledge that is esoteric or obscure or has deliberately been veiled from common discussion.
Occult authors

Occult books and pamphlets
Books describing magical beliefs and practices, such as Grimoires, instructions in spell-craft, and Thelemite texts.
Symbolism
Representative symbols that carry interpreted meanings in addition to or apart from their use as literal representations of concepts; such symbols may be figurative or they may consist of symbolic meanings applied to common natural objcts, colors, scents, and numbers.
