I asked, "Who is his enemy? Knew his lineal figure and its color. Knew his place in temple. Knew his weapon from a list of 6. Knew his planetary nature from a list of 7 planets. Knew his number from a list of 10 units. Picked him out of a Five, b Three indifferent, i,e, arbitrary symbols. We cannot too strongly insist on the extraordinary character of this identification. Calculate the odds! Lawrence Sutin says this ritual described Horus in detail, and could have given Rose the answers to her husband's questions.
Much to Crowley's initial amusement, she passed by several common images of the god, and went upstairs. From across the room  Rose identified Horus on the stele of Ankh-ef-en-Khonsu , then housed under inventory number since moved to the Egyptian Museum of Cairo, number A The stela would subsequently be known to Thelemites adherents of Thelema as the "Stele of Revealing. Between 23 March and 8 April, Crowley had the hieroglyphs on the stele translated.

Also, Rose revealed that her "informant" was not Horus himself, but his messenger, Aiwass. The apartment was on the ground floor, and the "temple" was the drawing room.
Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods , saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room. This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was "of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message.
Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone. Crowley also got a "strong impression" of the speaker's general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of "fine matter," which had a gauze-like transparency. Further, he "seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw.
The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely. The writing also recorded Crowley's own thoughts. Rather he said that the experience was exactly like an actual voice speaking to him. This resulted in a few transcription errors, about which the scribe had to later inquire. Yet in these Books did Aleister Crowley, the master of English both in prose and in verse, partake insofar as he was That.
Compare those Books with The Book of the Law! The style [of the former] is simple and sublime; the imagery is gorgeous and faultless; the rhythm is subtle and intoxicating; the theme is interpreted in faultless symphony.
There are no errors of grammar, no infelicities of phrase. Each Book is perfect in its kind. I, daring to snatch credit for these [ Such a theory would further imply that I am, unknown to myself, possessed of all sorts of praeternatural knowledge and power. Both Freudian and Jungian theory are on the side of such an assumption The book was written.
And he became the mouthpiece for the Zeitgeist, accurately expressing the intrinsic nature of our time as no one else has done to date. For one thing, it knocked my Buddhism completely on the head. I was bitterly opposed to the principles of the Book on almost every point of morality.
The third chapter seemed to me gratuitously atrocious. It would be several years before it was found, and the first official publication occurred in The Book of the Law annoyed me; I was still obsessed by the idea that secrecy was necessary to a magical document, that publication would destroy its importance.
The Book Of The Law
I determined, in a mood which I can only describe as a fit of ill temper, to publish The Book of the Law, and then get rid of it for ever. In several cases, stanzas from the Stele of Revealing were inserted within the text. Chapter 1[ edit ] For example, chapter 1, page 2, line 9 was written as "V. On page 6 of chapter 1, the following is in the original manuscript: And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the unfragmentary non-atomic fact of my universality.
This was later changed to: And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.
AL I Chapter 3[ edit ] The last chapter contains a few spelling changes, and includes large chunks inserted from Crowley's paraphrase of The Stele of Revealing. The phrase "Force of Coph Nia", which is found in chapter 3, on page 64 verse 72 , was filled in by Rose Kelly because that place in the manuscript had been left incomplete as not having been properly heard by Crowley during the supposed dictation.
The first chapter is spoken by Nuit, the Egyptian goddess of the night sky, called the Queen of Space. Crowley calls her the "Lady of the Starry Heaven, who is also Matter in its deepest metaphysical sense, who is the infinite in whom all we live and move and have our being. As such, he is the infinitely condensed point, the center of her infinite circumference. Crowley says of him, "He is eternal energy, the Infinite Motion of Things, the central core of all being.
The manifested Universe comes from the marriage of Nuit and Hadit; without this could no thing be. This eternal, this perpetual marriage-feast is then the nature of things themselves; and therefore, everything that exists is a "crystallisation of divine ecstasy", and "He sees the expansion and the development of the soul through joy.
Crowley sums up the speakers of the three chapters thus, "we have Nuit, Space, Hadit, the point of view; these experience congress, and so produce Heru-Ra-Ha , who combines the ideas of Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Hoor-paar-kraat.
Crowley wrote about Liber AL in great detail throughout the remainder of his life, apparently attempting to decipher its mysteries. The mysterious 'grid' page of Liber AL's manuscript. Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key also. And Abrahadabra.
Thelema implies not merely a new religion, but a new cosmology, a new philosophy, a new ethics. It co-ordinates the disconnected discoveries of science, from physics to psychology, into a coherent and consistent system.
Its scope is so vast that it is impossible even to hint at the universality of its application.
We may then expect the New Aeon to release mankind from its pretence of altruism, its obsession of fear and its consciousness of sin. It will possess no consciousness of the purpose of its own existence. It will not be possible to persuade it that it should submit to incomprehensible standards; it will suffer from spasms of transitory passion; it will be absurdly sensitive to pain and suffer from meaningless terror; it will be utterly conscienceless, cruel, helpless, affectionate and ambitious, without knowing why; it will be incapable of reason, yet at the same time intuitively aware of truth.
I might go on indefinitely to enumerate the stigmata of child psychology, but the reader can do it equally for himself, and every idea that comes to him as characteristic of children will strike him as applicable to the events of history since , from the Great War to Prohibition.
And if he possess any capacity for understanding the language of symbolism, he will be staggered by the adequacy and accuracy of the summary of the spirit of the New Aeon given in The Book of the Law.
He writes, "Many such cases of double entendre, paronomasia in one language or another, sometimes two at once, numerical-literal puzzles, and even on one occasion an illuminating connexion of letters in various lines by a slashing scratch, will be found in the Qabalistic section of the Commentary.
It also claims to be the utterance of an illuminated mind co-extensive with the ultimate ideas of which the universe is composed. He showed his KNOWLEDGE chiefly by the use of cipher or cryptogram in certain passages to set forth recondite facts, including some events which had yet to take place, such that no human being could possibly be aware of them; thus, the proof of his claim exists in the manuscript itself.
It is independent of any human witness.

It is independent of any human witness. The study of these passages necessarily demands supreme human scholarship to interpret— it needs years of intense application. A great deal has still to be worked out.
But enough has been discovered to justify his claim; the most sceptical intelligence is compelled to admit its truth. This matter is best studied under the Master Therion, whose years of arduous research have led him to enlightenment.
On the other hand, the language of most of the Book is admirably simple, clear and vigorous. No one can read it without being stricken in the very core of his being. The more than human POWER of Aiwass is shewn by the influence of his Master, and of the Book, upon actual events: and history fully supports the claim made by him. These facts are appreciable by everyone; but are better understood with the help of the Master Therion. The full detailed account of the events leading up to the dictation of this Book, with facsimile reproduction of the Manuscript and an essay by the Master Therion, is published in The Equinox of the Gods.
The elements are Nuit— Space— that is, the total of possibilities of every kind— and Hadit, any point which has experience of these possibilities. This idea is for literary convenience symbolized by the Egyptian Goddess Nuit, a woman bending over like the Arch of the Night Sky. Hadit is symbolized as a Winged Globe at the heart of Nuit. Every event is a uniting of some one monad with one of the experiences possible to it. Each one of us has thus an universe of his own, but it is the same universe for each one as soon as it includes all possible experience.
This implies the extension of consciousness to include all other consciousness. In our present stage, the object that you see is never the same as the one that I see; we infer that it is the same because your experience tallies with mine on so many points that the actual differences of our observation are negligible.
For instance, if a friend is walking between us, you see only his left side, I his right; but we agree that it is the same man, although we may differ not only as to what we may see of his body but as to what we know of his qualities.
This conviction of identity grows stronger as we see him more often and get to know him better. Yet all the time neither of us can know anything of him at all beyond the total impression made on our respective minds. The above is an extremely crude attempt to explain a system which reconciles all existing schools of philosophy. All events are equally lawful— and every one necessary, in the long run— for all of us, in theory; but in practice, only one act is lawful for each one of us at any given moment.
Therefore Duty consists in determining to experience the right event from one moment of consciousness to another. The technical methods of achieving this are to be studied in Magick, or acquired by personal instruction from the Master Therion and his appointed assistants.The esoteric path is a highly subjective one, we can only look inside for truth, and my truth may not be yours.
Next, beginning B. I, No. I asked her to pick out his name from a list of ten dashed off at haphazard.
These facts are appreciable by everyone; but are better understood with the help of the Master Therion. This is very interesting, and the Illuminati Cipher shows that Aiwass wasn't "a man like Crowley" but, in fact, Crowley himself.
Regardie also noted resemblances between The Book of the Law and these latter holy books, such as the inclusion of "rambling, unintelligible" passages, "some repugnant to reason by their absurdity, and their jarring goatish quality".
