Aleister Crowley AKA Edward Alexander Crowley AKA Frater Perdurabo AKA I shall endure until the End AKA The Great Beast 666 AKA Master Therion AKA V.V.V.V.V. AKA "Laird of Boleskine" AKA Prince Chioa Khan; AKA Sir Alastor de Kerval aka Alister Krouli aka H. D. Carr aka The Old Crow aka Uncle AL (AL, all capitols, is the Key to the Book of the Law, as well as an abbreviation of his chosen 1st name)


England 1875 - 1947

Comments: Thelema;Rosicrucian; Qabalist; sex magick; Tarot; chess master; mountain climber; traveler to the Oriental parts of the British Empire; part Holy Man, part Con Man, especially after the fortune he inherited was wasted; Raised in strict Plymouth Brethren household, yet with a fortune in beer breweries, he was neglected and isolated as a child, became a rakish University student, and went on to be a member of the British Intelligentsia; His Will was not always up to the challenges he gave his body, and he became addicted to doctor prescribed morphine in his adulthood; Thus his life is a cautionary tale, he experienced great heights, but also the lowest depths, went from riches to rags, and died alone and virtually friendless on welfare.

So, before "religiously" following Uncle AL's path, suggest you consider where he produced great WORK and when he "broke bad". His example is of the advantages of keeping one's Spiritual Life separate from making one's income in the Material World. "Let Success be thy Proof", as Uncle AL counsels in Magick In Theory and Practice, and he was including material success, should not lead to living on charity or drug addiction as "success". One must distill the Gold from the Dross of his teachings, refine the "Dead Head" into elixir, and experiment cautiously to extract the Wisdom from the Folly that lead to his later years of difficulties - hint, EGO has more than a small part in his Fall, as well as his Antinomianism methods, as a reader of the New Testament, he should have recognized that the Scarlet Woman brings total destruction before a New World can be manifested. Perhaps, more Christ - like than he would like to believe, he tried to bargain for that New Aeon with his own suffering. Yes, that sound you hear is The Old Crow rolling over in his grave! ;


Much has been made as to whether Uncle AL's Holy Guardian Angel should be identified with Shaitain of Persia or Satan of the Christian Bible, since the Book of the Law is so obviously...influenced by the King James. As all my Thelemite friends are tired of hearing, Aiwass was the NAME of The Beast's Holy Guardian Angel, not your's, so in running across it in ritual it is necessary to substitute your own Angel's name to taylor the ritual to your own WORK. Jerry Cornelius, my old Lodgemaster from the Brocken Mountain OTO, insists on identifying Crowley as a Satanist, and writes brilliantly (if opinionatedly) as "SATAN IN BERKLEY " on the subject on Facebook. We will look at the question of the Devil in a future essay, comparing Dante's Satan with John Milton's Lucifer, the Catholic Devil to the Protestant. This will cover the initiated version of the Old Testament story of Job (and Jesus' resurrection), the Wicca theories of Margaret Murray and Starhawk; The transition from Horned God to Evil Power to Nature Freed; The influence on "Bad Boys" of the 17 and 18 th centuries (looking at you, William Blake and Uncle AL, the Old Crow Aleister Crowley); Modern interpretations such as the Ann Randian Selfishness of Anton LaVey to dangerous Cthulhuoid invocations culled from the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft. In the meantime, check out the essay on Good and Evil or Theodicy for background; Creator of quasi- Masonic Rites;
