I think I've discovered one aspect of ABRAHADABRA, the 'reward' of
the new Aeon.
I think the new Aeon will bring an apex in evolutionary progress.
Allow me to elaborate.
Crowley defined a way of viewing Abrahadabra: Breaking it up into the
two words BRH and DBR, commonly referred to as the vision and the
voice. Also, it has been said that in the beginning there was the
word. I view a word, or any linguistic system, as a model, based on
reality. As a model, a word is subjective, not representing the
actual experience itself. Every thought that occurs to us, everything
we speak and hear, is based on this logical fallacy. My *EXTREMELY
SIMPLISTIC* model for the way this works:
sensory input from an objective reality >>internalization, personal
representation, thoughts, and comparisons of the consciousness.
language, inner dialogue. the mind filtering and editing objectivity,
through a personal "reality filter.">> perception, a personal and
subjective "spin" put on reality by the waking consciousness. a
disease of the mind. a sort of dissonance.>> objective actions
returned to an objective reality, directly influenced by a subjective
state of mind. repeat. I feel that mastering this cycle is the
mastery of the self.
In otherwords, if we are to truly become aware of our total and
absolute unification with the cosmos, it will be neccessary to
radically modify or completely erradicate our current system of
linguistics. (May the hour of my silence return. Amen!)
What Abrahadabra tells us, I think, is that the New Aeon will bring
with it an elimination of the dissonance that is caused by the gap or
abyss between the vision and the voice. A beautiful sort of no-mind,
that, in theory, can be stopped and started at will. Imagine being
able to unify at the snap of a finger, a prolonged mystical
nothingness that is comparable to an extended orgasm. The goal of the
great work, to me, is this unification of speech and vision, matter
and spirit. This schism can be traversed, and as a culture I feel we
are on the verge.
The beginning of the consciousness of the universe had to have been
started with a word. A word is a symbol of duality, and we are
divided for the chance of union, the joy that this union brings. The
five A's scattered throughout the word ABRAHADABRA, I think,
represents all five points of the pentagram, the four elements and
the spirit. That the letter aleph is numerically equal to one
promises a sense of unity of all of these.
Arguments are welcome and encouraged.
