# 93, beast 333, you anti-crowley cult crusher, you! ;)
333 re some supposed 'Thelemic celebrity':
#> please explain in what manner he is a Thelemite.
how many manners are there?
#> does he belong to some cult?
some quasi-masonic, or pseudo-tantric?
#> is he a devotee of Aleister Crowley?
an anti-Christian, or orientalist faker?
#> does he have some virtues or characteristics
#> which you associate w/ Thelema?
the Philosophy of the Strong?
# I wonder if it really surprises you that crowleyanity
# is gradually subverting Thelema?
is it? or was the cult of Crowley never really a hotbed
of Thelemic virtue at all, just hoping and praying for
better icons and cult leaders to emerge from the filth?
to subvert Thelema, a religion would have to permeate
its extent. Thelema is not social, but innate. cults
trying to obfuscate its reality by pretending to
represent it and contain it in subversion to a
Beast merely demonstrate their corruption and the
flimsy substance of "knowledge" and "wisdom".
# Or does it just continue to disappoint you?
oh no, Thelema as it manifests in the strong is
thoroughly impressive. it knows no leaders since
it becomes its own icebreaker. it follows no
formula because it emerges from the throes of
will. it doesn't dress up in a single costume
since its primary vector is volition divorced
# Is this not the natural progression of such
# developments over time,
the natural progression of faked representations
is that they wear thin over time in balding spots,
stress in weak linkage, and come apart at seams,
unravelling their ploy and leaving their victims
bereft of any authority whatever. this is their due.
# that the essence of a Truth is eventually
# diminished by the aggregate of its own
# adherent's unworthiness?
truths are a dime a dozen, every vacuous cult a
hotbed of proclaimers after the One Real Truth.
adherency is itself a demonstration of thelemic
falsity. followers in the Religion of Leaders,
all knowing their pure Virtue, betray it.
# Perhaps Thelema must inevitably be minimized to
# a minority school of mysticism, less and less
# recognizable in the shadow its own cult?
Thelema has always been the centerpoint of every
mystical current, motivating all aspects of life,
and bequeathing the vitriol of its perfection as
a type of blessing to all social movements. that
some knave and make-a-buck seeks to have it serve
his interests just shows the perverse aspects of
its seeking and cloying charade and demonstrates
the extremities of wannabe attention-seeking.
meanwhile, the Magus operates behind the scenes,
exemplifying what the ignorant seek to contain.
