4622Re: Significance of 93
- Aug 14, 200493 is used as a short form of Thelemic salutation.
Reminds me of the old joke. The warden is showing a visitor through
the prison. In cell block 8 a prisoner calls out the number 25 and
everone breaks into peals of laughter. Another prisoner calls out 62
and again everyone roars. A third prisoner calls out 93, but there is
dead silence. The visitor asks 'What in the world is going on here?
The warden says, These guys have been here so long that they all know
eacother's jokes, so for conveniece sake they have just given them
numbers. The visitor asks, But why didn't anyone laugh at number 93.
Oh, old Joe never could tell a joke.
Let's give that joke the number 93.
I never did understand Crowley's point with these admonitions.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Sounds like you can
be ruled by any idiot whim that takes your fancy. Doesn't this just
lead to a form of Clinton mania, where you can't keep your pants
Love is the Law, love under will: Will under love I could understand
but love under will?
Will someone explain the spiritual meaning of Thelemic Law to me?
