Both Frater Achad (in A Master of the Temple) and Robert Anton Wilson
(in Cosmic Trigger, vol. 1) describe their experiences with Liber
Jugorum. Both men found the results interesting and positive. If you
don't like cutting yourself with a razor there are plenty of other forms
of negative reinforcement you can apply.
Nothing on the face of this earth -- and I do mean nothing --
is half so dangerous as a childrens story that happens to be
real, and you and I are wandering blindfolded through a myth
devised by a maniac.
