presumably, you refer to the tzaddi heh switch?
i marked up all my 777 books (and the rest of them) to read this way
(i.e. the big blue brick way) after reading Regardie's editorial on
the matter along with the Book of Thoth's text on the matter some 12
years ago after reading them a couple times, noticing the editorial
fuckup/ blind. it's nice to own a copy (the big blue brick) which i
/don't/ have to mark up in this way (the 1994 edition /still/ got the
western magical powers 'wrong,' but the 1997 version 'fixed' it).
right or wrong, intended or unintended, edited or unedited, blind or
no blind, this is the way I have read my Crowley books for years.
however, in my defense:
1) i am probably not alone in this marking up of books, to reflect the
tzaddi heh switch.
2) i have read your ideas on this 333, and i remain unconvinced, if a
any /blockhead/ will notice something fishy going on real quick with
the tzaddi heh switch, big blue book edits or no. therefore, the
'corruption' is more of an 'edit.' Especially as these fixes are NOTED
clearly in the editorial notes.
i am still wondering what kind of 'magical' (let alone logical) sense
it makes to associate Aries with The Star, and Aquarius with the
Emperor. I mean, I'll admit frankly I don't understand your
'reasoning' behind it at all (the so called value-neutral 'logical
sense' referred to above). Not one whit. OK, I say to myself. Forget
the 'logical' sense, what is the symbolic or metaphoric or pathworking
/result/ of such and such a switch. So far the result for me is mere
nullity. What /advantage/ is there in reading things the way that you
have, 333, in a book such as your Liber Tzaddi versus the way that is
suggested in the Big Blue Brick (herein after BBB for brevity)?
you will, at least, admit that HB does take note of all this, and is
/not/ performing some duplicitous literary cups and pea trick behind
the reader's back?
