What Year is it?

Thelemic New Year starts at the Vernal Equinox, and Thelemic Holy Days continue through April 8th, 9th and 10th. The calendar counts years from the Equinox of the Gods in 1904 e.v. (era vulgaris = common date). This will be the 84th Thelemic year, by Crowley's method. The Thelemic year is expressed in one of two ways. By Roman numerals: LXXXIV e.n. (era noblis = noble date). By Crowley's "Thoth" method: IIIxviii e.n. (3x22+18=84)


from the Grady Project:

Grady Project #3 will be released at the Vernal Equinox party on the 19th. We plan an informal reading as part of the festivities. Copies of Projects #1 & #2 are available at the Lodge for $1.00 and $2.00 donation, respectively.

Ballet Sol

With streaming costume of the dance,
And slanting in as tho to lance
The precessioning worlds that creep,
Our prima donna's comet sweep
Slips the grasp of the mighty sun,
Whose armored might of gold is spun,
And leaps again far into space.
The sun is chained and gives no chase
Tho never is his love forgotten-------

Ephemeral, star begotten
Music of the gravitic lutes
Shape elliptical convolutes
To which pirouetting planets whirl
And as their satellites they twirl
About them, here match their ego
To this skirling, high allegro.
Each harp of closed, concentric rings
Draws from its humming, weaving strings
A cosmic rhythm. Savage drums
Pound the ecliptic plane, it thrums
And molds one all embracing whole,
A living universe! A soul.

Our Brother in Thelema, Richard McGrew, passed into the embrace of Nuit on the 6th of February just passed. His Greater Feast was sudden and unexpected, without prolonged suffering. Brother Richard collapsed suddenly and did not awaken from coma before the end. A brain tumor was diagnosed to be the cause. He had recently assumed the leadership of Baphomet Lodge in Southern California, under the guidance of the former Lodge master, J.E. When a person advances rapidly and attains to notable office, it is common to hear criticism from the less able. I have never heard a negative word spoken of our Brother Richard, something possibly unique in the annals of Thelema. He will be missed by all who knew him. His passing is a loss to all who knew him not.


From the Outbasket

Q. What does ... in "Liber AL", Chapter ..., Verse ... mean?
                      --- examples from KG of CA and SM of MA

It shouldn't surprise people to learn that we get letters asking about the significance of particular verses in Liber AL. After all, O.T.O. is one of the many Thelemic organizations around, owns the original manuscript and seems a logical place to go for interpretation. That may be logical, but it's also a bit of a problem. Thelema espouses private interpretation. In other words, each individual must interpret for him or her self. No declarations of "actual meaning" of expressions in Liber AL are acceptable to a conservative Thelemite. Some people do make such "definitive" interpretations and publish them. I don't mean to suggest that those people are wrong because of an injunction in Liber AL not to do such things. That would be interpretation of Liber AL! We simply don't accept such work in O.T.O. To proceed on that line of thinking is to mentally circle in paradox. Bear with me, the paradoxes are not over.
Study requires research. Research requires access to the ideas of others. For study of Liber AL, if we are not to be limited to meditation and vision, there must be a body of reference material. Dictionaries and encyclopedias only go so far. You can discover that "Obeah" and "Wanga" are words from Afro American religion. You can go to Crowley's comments, evidently done by him in answer to a perceived injunction in his reading of Liber AL. What about Thelemic history? What about the ideas of the thousands of Thelemites since Crowley? Where is the line to be drawn against discussion and interpretation of The Book of the Law? These questions can be answered in many ways, and other questions are engendered in the process. Do we forbid talk? Do we burn the diaries of deceased Thelemites lest in reading them a necromantic discussion of Liber AL take place? Perhaps some would say "yes!" to these last questions. Yet:

AL I,41: "The word of Sin is Restriction. O man! refuse not thy wife, if she will! O lover, if thou wilt, depart! There is no bond that can unite the divided but love: all else is a curse. Accursed! Accursed be it to the aeons! Hell."

Compromise is a dangerous art, albeit a sometimes necessary one. The very act of citing Liber AL without comment makes the text before and after take on characteristics of discussion of the meaning of the citation; no way out there.

Necessity is a very real pressure. What are we to answer when someone innocently asks about these verses:

AL III,12: "Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after a child."
AL III,13: "But not now."
AL III,14: "Ye shall see that hour, o blessed Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire!"
AL III,15: "Ye shall be sad thereof."

No answer or the wrong answer could equally lead to murder in the case of an unstable mind. Shall we allude to Numa's question of Jupiter and speak of heads and pilchards? Shall we pour over Crowley's Magick in Theory and Practice and note that Crowley meant contraceptive sex when he wrote of sacrificing a child? Shall we remark that Crowley sacrificed "big children" by declaring a Magical Child and dedicating the life of an adult to doing good works in the name of Thelema? Are such observations not discussion of the meaning of verses in Liber AL? Some say "Yes! It's wrong. Liber AL itself forbids it!" The first paradox is back again. If you say "Liber AL forbids all interpretation," you have interpreted Liber AL.

A paradox is a logical flaw produced by the circular collision of reason.

AL II,32: "Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise."

Some paradoxes can be deflated by recognizing Aristotle's fallacy of four terms, that favorite of salesmen and politicians. For serious cases, split hairs on definitions. Gauss' Theorem tells us that no large body of axioms and postulates can be proven to be free from paradox. Reason lies, for there will always come some point unknown in its application, some finite limit to the validity of the base of reason. Yet, in a skew-wise world there is occasional need for skew-wise words.

Here's a split hair and a sophistry: Define discussion of Liber AL to be arguement on the true meaning of the verses. Set aside from this definition the sharing of ideas evoked by the verses. The hair falls neatly in half: To one side, forbidden discussion to definitive meaning. To the other side, "harmless" sharing of thoughts without final conclusion. If it is the nature of reason to lie, let it be true to its nature! For sophistry a disclaimer:
Anything said about Liber AL, with the limited exception of Crowley's comments, is subjective. No case should be made that this is in any way an effort to explain what it really means. Everybody interprets Liber AL personally and privately. No one should try to interpret it for anybody else. These are just ideas that occur to me, or ideas I have heard from others. If they help, fine. It's what Liber AL means to you that counts, not what I or anybody else thinks or says it means. That said, on to some thoughts:

Q1: In I,15, do the references to Beast and Scarlet Woman refer to roles or people, like Crowley and Rose?

AL I,15: "Now ye shall know that the chosen priest & apostle of infinite space is the prince-priest the Beast; and in his woman called the Scarlet Woman is all power given. They shall gather my children into their fold: they shall bring the glory of the stars into the hearts of men."

Crowley held a variety of views about this and other parts of Liber AL during his lifetime. Those views changed with his experience and insight. Crowley also had alter egos, roles and alternate personalities. He was Therion, Perdurabo, Ankh-f-n-khonsu, and many others. Most of the time, Crowley treated these alter egos as modes of action and thinking. As Baphomet, Crowley was head of O.T.O. As Perdurabo, he was a simple brother and student of the mysteries. Some of these alter egos were personal, like Perdurabo, just his. Others were true roles, like Baphomet, an office others would come to fill under that or another title. Ankh-f-n-khonsu seems to be at least two different aspects: 1. an expressed belief that Aleister Crowley was a reincarnation of a particular Egyptian Priest. 2. an adorative state of mind in which the gods and goddess of Ancient Egypt related to Crowley. A third aspect may have been involved: 3. As a priest of the deities, Crowley was responsible for passing on their revelations in Liber AL to others through his writings and deeds. For Crowley, the first Scarlet Woman was Rose, his first wife. I suppose that he might have thought of Rose as "THE" Scarlet Woman, a particular person, until his marriage to her began to deteriorate. After the end of that marriage, Crowley took up with other ladies. Some of those he came to call his "Scarlet Woman". This made "Scarlet Woman" a role taken by different individuals in his personal life, instead of one particular person. Probably because of this, Crowley came to speculate that "Beast" was also a role as well. As roles, Beast and Scarlet Woman partake of the nature of deities or "faces of the gods". That can be different from offices or mundane roles in some ways. The office of Governor of the State of California, for example, is filled by a succession of individuals. At times there may be no Governor. There can be only one Governor. Once there was no Governor of California, and in the long passage of time there will be a point past which no Governor of California will ever be again. As semi-divine roles, Beast and Scarlet Woman may be eternal and may manifest in more than one person at a time. An example would be an actor fully caught up in playing Macbeth. A thousand actors could play Macbeth at the same time throughout the World. There is one Macbeth who can manifest through many actors. The Beast and Scarlet Woman may manifest through one person each at a time or through many; it isn't clear. Common practice of Thelemites indicates many manifestations is the norm, with perhaps one set being the best or primary manifestation at any given time.

Q2. Please comment about Verses 54 - 56 of Chapter I

(Ditto on disclaimer)

AL I,54: "Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! thou, o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein."
AL I,55: "The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them."
AL I,56: "Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no
expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all, in the dark."

These verses appear to address the rigidity of physical appearance of Liber AL, the fact that not all was known to the prophet and some indication that another will know more. Crowley held that he should not change the capital or lower case usage in Liber AL, but was free to alter punctuation in accord with another verse about "space marks". I have had the honor of examining the original Manuscript of Liber AL, and there is some doubt that Crowley always limited himself to not changing the style of the Letters. There are signs of re-touching, especially on:

AL I,57: "Invoke me under my stars! Love is the law, love under will. Nor let the fools mistake love; for there are love and love. There is the dove, and there is the serpent. Choose ye well! He, my prophet, hath chosen, knowing the law of the fortress, and the great mystery of the House of God."

"All these old letters of my Book are aright; but # is not the Star. This also is secret: my prophet shall reveal it to the wise."
(# In MS, a mark in this place is commonly read as the Hebrew letter Tzaddi.)

The mark commonly cited by Crowley as "Tzaddi" has been retouched at least twice.

On the question of the Child, there have been many speculations. Is it a human being, possibly the natural son or daughter of Crowley? Crowley has two living daughters who apparently have no interest in Thelema. Crowley's surviving son, Aleister Attaturk McAlpine, has made claims along these lines over the years; but he has not been taken very seriously. Is this Child a "magical son", not physically fathered by Crowley but mystically? Crowley seemed to prefer this view, naming several people in succession as his "Magical Son". None of these has shown major insight into the mysteries of Liber AL, at least on a level that would bear out the prophesy. Is the Child a suggestion of intangible spirit, capable of dwelling in any and all Thelemites? That view has been popular, mainly from the late 1960s. Is this a reference to the Child Horus, a deity mentioned elsewhere in Liber AL? That possibility can be satisfied by the appearance of Heru-Pa-Kraath in the latter part of the book. The verse may refer to a future communication and another prophet. There have been a number of attempts to "complete Liber AL" through mystical reception of additional communications from Aiwass. All of these have attempted to introduce themselves as continuations of or prefaces to Liber AL, and that seems to doom them. Liber AL contains what appears to be a definite statement that it is ended as a written work. The reference to "child of thy bowels," seems to suggest a physical son or daughter of Crowley; but this can be taken as a reference to the Manipura Chakra, the source of major projective Magick in the Body of Light. You can see it on the Thoth Atu's of The Chariot and Lust. Verse I,56 also appears to say that half of Liber AL is an unwritten mystery, the concealed wisdom that can never be completely understood by any prophet. In that sense, the "Child" could refer to the next Aeon, about 2,000 years from now. It could also be thought to be the accumulated living essence of all Thelemites.

Note: One purpose behind printing this is to see what people think about the approach. I am most assuredly not The One True Number Two, the Beast Mark II. I can be beastly. I have occasionally been a "mark", tho' never a "nark". I could say that I am from the land of the Wes. I could remark on those remembered balmy days with Sah, spent hunting in the Field of Reeds. I could even lay a claim to coming from the fetal star near the Trapezium -- for astronomy buffs. I can't say that "Iwas from outer space" and wear my hair combed like a helmet --- not enough hair left. Al kidd'n aside, would our readers like to see more of this sort of thing? Anybody object? I hope a certain friend has retained his sense of humor.

    A Note on Dee's use of Hebrew

      Dee uses Hebrew in the foregoing note to add
emphasis, and for the elucidation of metaphysical
and etymological meaning. In placing Aleph beneath
the name of the archangel Michael, he is probably
identifying this archangel's traditional primacy as
chief of the angelic hoasts. He may also be drawing
attention to the cabalistic significance of Michael's

permeating factor in the theory of Dee's Hieroglyphic
Monad.
2. (1+50+1=52, 1+50+5=56)      Aleph Nun Aleph and Aleph Nun He2 are both Hebrew
roots similar in meaning to the Latin "obsecrantis
et confitentis . . ." which follows. They mean
entreaty and lamentation respectively. The first
as in "I pray thee,: and the second the action of
pleading or seeking, and tranferably to bow, or
bowing.
      The instruction itself is proabably quite
theologically straightforward, and somewhat akin to
a common difficulty faced in determining the intent

    EXPLICATIO.

      The preceeding angelic arrangement is a synthesis of
Renaissance metaphysical principles; in particular combining
the occult doctrines of H. Cronelius Agrippa with John Dee's
own rather peculiar magical theorems. The four archangels
central to this table are the angelic personalities whose
1. More discussion of this
      will be given in the
      forthcoming issue.
proper names appear in the Cannon and Apocrypha of traditional
Hebrew and Christian scripture.1 It was the primary intention
of Dee's religious magick, as will become clear in the exegesis
2. Note that these archangelic
      beings form the foundation
      of much of the ritual practice
      of modern ceremonial magick.
      See A. Crowley, Liber O vel
      Manus et Sagittae (Book 6);
      B. Heidrick, Magick and
      Qabalah; and I. Regardie,
      The Golden Dawn. etc.
of his spiritual diaries, to make contact with these angelic
intelligences.2
      It is the placement of Annael in the superior position of
this hierarchy that is rather unorthodox. It is probable that
Dee is identifying this particular angel with the Anima Mundi,
or World Spirit, as predominating over the rulers of the four
3. Initiates of the VIII O.T.O.
      will notice Crowley's direct
      application of this formula
      to Enochian Magick; see De
      Nuptiis Secretia Deorum cum
      Hominibus (Book 24), chs. xi
      & xii; also Liber XXX AErum
      vel Saeculi (Book 418). aethers
      ix & ii. etc.
elements. This representation of the feminine aspect of
nature, and the female spirit in particular, can be seen in
the concluding plate of the first edition of Dee's Monas
Heiroglyphica, where she is pictured grasping in her right
hand a seven-pointed star4. This heptangular symbol is
cabalistically attributed to Netzach, whose ruling archangel
is Haniel, an alternate form of the name Annael. Studious
4. Ambix vol. xii. nos. 2 & 3
      (June & Oct. 1964), plate iii.
attention to the phonetic exposition of his concluding note,
as well as to the etymological and hieratical implications of the
upper right-hand notation, will support this proposition.
The concluding note is itself both an attempt to translate
and to latinize the given Hebrew idiom, and in so doing to set
forth the formative method of Dee's Magical experiments in the
science of theurgy.
