hey Rev Rob!
Robert Furtkamp <reverendrob@...>:
# ...Within Crowley's works, Will has a very specific
# meaning and intent. It's a singular purpose, not
# random actions, random thoughts, etc.
could you elaborate here? isn't there some kind of
"orbit" described in association with wills and
Wills where the Beast is writing? where does that
come from? is Crowley's expression really
completely coherent on the topic? might you point
out some which is definitive on this point?
# ...merely a co-opting of terms and a movement
# to achieve a particular end, which with what's
# listed elsewhere in your post, appears to be
# drinking and having a good time. There's
# nothing wrong with that, but it's not the
# essence of occultism for many practitioners.
it does sound like willful revelry, however. I've
known a number of Thelemites who sought this out.
some associate debauch or intoxication with the
religion or philosophy of Thelema also, and they
sometimes may refer to the Lawbook to justify it
("...wine and strange drugs...." etc.).
# There is no room for non-authority or
# wishy-washy modern pseudo-scholarship either.
dunno, Crowley seems to have fomented that in
the general perpetuation of occult standards
to and throughout his time. few bother with
any kind of scholarship. Crowley at least
gave a reading list for his AA that was quite
helpful, were one familiar with the documents,
in determining from what they were drawing.
# If you are so reactionary towards him, he's
# doing his job. He serves as a foil to deflate
# the balloon of those who cannot adequately
# release the built up ThelemaGas hiding in
# their bowels.
lol! glad you think I'm on the ball, Rev Rob. :)
# ...a reaction to the observation, the line
# that forms from the points....
that sounds like: inference toward projection,
with a reaction to that projected. what would
need doing at that point were one to care to
proceed would be to explain how the projection
was faulty (somewhat in the manner of the way
that I have done in response to Sr. Erin and
that I expect she will reply in coming days).

that makes you more liberated, maybe. ;)
