My perception of the situation relates to the present system of sex
magick taught by the OTO. If the revealed, more or less public
knowledge of the rituals are of any import, there is a bit of phallic
worship, and a sort of mundane alchemy which is supposed to be part of
the Grand Secret. The system is not whole nor is it really that sexist.
Your very interesting messages are interpreted as a polarization
instead of a narrow minded duality. Yet, if we read the nesting and
holon concept of some post modern writers (wilber who has borrowed
alot), we begin to see that it is neither male nor female dogma; nor
religion, nor duality, but parts of a whole.
Perhaps, this is the reson androgeny is so popular in magick, these days.
I imagine that the original sexual magick secret has been totally
released into public knowledge, however, we most assuredly know a good
read might peak some psychological process; but it is not replacement
for some kind of practice. Any practice is better than none; as all
errors are eventually realized and corrected. Yet, in present day
understanding there are no errors or fragmented parts.
However, as a mentor once said; "practice does not make perfect: only
perfect practice makes perfect".
