# Considering your own personal usage of word Thelema,
that spans quite a gamut. I don't have a pet fave.
tendency is one of the 2 common valences (philosophy)
though my tendrils are extended into the other goo.
# limited as it is to the origin and
# earlier usage of the word, and differing so

this doesn't seem to apply.
# why do you call the list Thelema93?
I didn't name the group, it was named prior
to the time that i began moderating.
# Why not Volition List, or something less

we're stuck with it. like branding our weenies.
# since you do not accept the Law of Thelema
them's religious words, ain't they? special profound
meanings? could you explain what it means to accept
the Law of Thelema and how one verifies having done it?
# or the existence of individual true Will inherent

that's a fairly unorthodox form. usually 'Will'
is an abbreviated referent True Will or true will
when the subject comes up, 'the divine (or transcendant)
will', otherwise. fools take the Truth of Will for
granted, silent in their special arrogant power.

Crowleyanity? sometimes i disdain that,
i guess. it gets old.
Thelema? it's half of a tantric mystico-magical
tour de force out of entanglements and into
Cosmic Manipulator status. it forms in complement
with Agape, the two poles being used to ripen
spiritually. the latter is the erotic coagulant
and the former is the ascetic distiller, the
varying thelemas weaving between them.
the Great Rite is of a kind that makes such a
complement, and it is amusing to consider this
as a sociological whole where these subcultures
(Wicca/Neo-Gnosticism) coincide. the religions
overlap in use of Crowley's writings, such as
botanical portions in Gnostic Mass/Wiccan liturgy.
1 Law and a side of chips for here, please.
