Book One, Chapter 4, you mean.
But the tale really doesn't get rolling until Book Three, chapter
thirty-seven, as you knowe.
Mr.VQ'QL has givn us a good steer..
HOW PANTAGRUEL PERSUADED PANURGE TO TAKE COUNSEL OF A FOOL
"Take heed I have often heard it said, in vulgar proverb, "The wise
may be instucted by a fool". Seeing the answers of sage and judicious
men have no manner of way satified you, take advice of some fool, and
possiby,by so doing, you may come to get that counsel that which will
be agreeable to your own heart's desire and contentment."
It goes on to tell the story of Seyny John, a wise fool who solved a
dispute between a porter who used some smoke to season his bread, and
the owner of the smoke, a street vendor of roasted meats.
Rabelais makes this point more than once in these great stories. Wise
fools like Achad or even Crowley himself apply; but not the nut cases
who plauge the Nursery, the weeping and wailing prophets in need of a
diaper change. (yes they think the lamb skin apron is a diaper)
The "foolishness" or "insanity" of long time adepts should be some
concern to us. Do we have any examples of adepts who crossed the
Abyss and have lived to publish coherently about it?
Is it like the "ascended masters" only the losers talk about it and
make claims, thereby violating the silence of the supernals. This
would explain the commom observation of the fools being mere tragic
mutations of the spawn of a new aeon.
