    Thanks for posting, Thetalpha. A true classic.

    Crowley did not write for the masses, or the unenlightened.

    I think you misinterpreted what he tried to say, MrK.

    When Crowley wrote, he wrote a lot of interesting stuff. But the only way to really understand the point of what he's trying to say is to read between the lines. To digest what he said, to do your research and try to see the greater meaning of things. If you only read what he says, you think it's absured. If you read it over and over and spend some time thinking about it and discussing with other people, you get to understand it.

    Not in the fashion Crowley did. Levi was still easier to understand.

    Thank you for putting it across so eloquently.

    I picked the book up a few weeks ago at a used book sotre for $5 (which is an AMAAAAZING price! even though the cover is missing), I've read a lot of it and there's not too much original material unless you're a Thelemite, which I am not.
