Rodin and his allegorical sculpture plays a great part in _StrangerIn A Strange Land_ by Robert A. Heinlein, particularly the uncut version. On pages 395-399 of Stranger, Jubal gives Ben a first class lesson on Rodin and allegorical sculpture. Not mentioned is that Rodin and Crowley were strong mutual admirers. In fact, Rodin was so taken by young Crowley and his poetry that he extended an invitation for a collaboration of poetry and sculpture which lasted for several projects.

personally, i'm neutral on Crowley.  i think he was one of the first visible over-the-top rebels.  the victorian age can do that to you.  he was wild and not very clever in his expressions, but he did reach memetic internal linkcritical mass.  i think he's an important step in the road to progressive thinking - the big explosion out of a very static and wound era.  to actively pursue internal linkheresy takes a lot of guts.

internal linkYouth: are you saying that the star is aware of what it is doing?

Thomas: Well, yes and no.  But let's think about it a moment.  We are the self-reflexion of the universe.  We allow the universe to know and feel itself.  So the universe is aware of itself through self-reflexitve mind, which unfurles in the human.  We were brought forth so that these experiences of beauty could enter awareness.  The primeval fireball existed for twenty billion years without self-awareness.  The creative work of the supernovas existed for billions of years without self-reflexive awareness.  That star could not, by itself, become aware of its own beauty or sacrifice.  But the star can, through us, reflect back on itself.  In a sense, you are the star.  Look at your hand - do you claim it as your own? Every element was forged in temperatures a million times hotter than molten rock, each atom fashioned in the blazing heat of the star.  Your eyes, your briain, your bones, all of you is composed of the star's creations.  You ARE that star, brought into a form of life that enables life to reflect on itself.  So, yes: the star DOES know of its great work, of its surrender to allurement, of its stupendous contribution to life, but only through its further articulation - you.

"All the elements of the Earth except hydrogen and some internal linkhelium have been cooked by a kind of stellar internal linkalchemy billions of years ago in stars, some of which are today inconspicuous white dwarfs on the other side of the internal linkMilky Way Galaxy. The nitrogen in our internal linkDNA, the calcium in our  teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of  collapsing stars. We are  made of starstuff."

"According to Ron Jr., his father considered himself to be the one 'who came after'; that he was Crowley's successor; that he had taken on the mantle of the 'Great Beast'. He told him that Scientology actually began on December the 1st, internal link1947. This was the day Aleister Crowley died."

"There are interesting similarities between Crowley's writings and the teachings of Hubbard. Dianetics' internal linkTime Track, in which every incident in a person's life is chronologically recorded in full in the mind, is quite similar to Crowley's internal linkMagical Memory. The Magical Memory is developed over time until ''internal linkmemories of childhood reawaken which were previously forgotten, and memories of previous incarnations are recalled as well'.  Hubbard gives examples in the Philadelphia Doctorate Course of several people remembering lives earlier on earth, some up to a million years ago. The similarity between the Magical Memory and Time Track, then, is that they both can recall every past incident in a person's life, they both can recall incidents from past lives, and they both must be developed by certain techniques in order to make use of them. Both Hubbard and Crowley consider it important to have the person recall his or her birth."

Tibet Dharma Wheel
The Illuminati Papers by Robert Anton Wilson

The most advanced internal linkshamanic techniques - such as internal linkTibetan Tantra or Crowley's system in the west - work by alternating faith and skepticism until you get beyond the ordinary limits of both.  With such systems, one learns how arbitrary are the reality internal linkmaps that can be coded into laryngeal grunts by hominids or visualized by a mammalian nervous system.  We can't even visualize the size of the local galaxy except in special high states.  Most people are trapped in one static reality map imprinted on their neurons when they were naive children, as internal linkDr. Leary keeps reminding us.  Alas, most so-called "adepts" or "gurus" are similarly trapped in the first postrapture reality map imprinted after their initial Illumination, as Leary also realizes.  The point of systems like Tantra, Crowleyanity, and Leary's Neurologic is to detach from all maps - which gives you the freedom to use any map where it works and drop it where it doesn't work.  As Dogen Zenji said, "Time is three eyes and internal linkeight elbows."

Was Crowley a Satanist?  Well, he could and did play the Satanist game on occasion, just as he played the Buddhist game, the Taoist game, the Hindu game, the atheist game, and lots of others.  It is emphatically not true that his reputation as Satanist and Black Magician was spread entirely by his enemies;  he collaborated gleefully in blackening his own character.  To understand his motives, you must first understand the role of terror in reimprinting the nervous system for higher, post-terrestrial functioning.  Aside from yoga and internal linkpsychedelic drugs, the only method for reimprinting the nervous system is shock, especially near-death trauma.  Most shamans are people who have gone through the death-rebirth internal linkprocess, just as in our own society you still find people who have passed through "clinical death," got revived on the operating table, and came back raving about transtime perspectives and beings of pureinternal linklight.  Crowley knew, as many shamans do, that you can get this result (shock and reimprint) quickly with some students by simply scaring the daylights out of them.  A classic gimmick is to steadily increased their (repressed) suspicion that the beloved guru, in whom they have stupidly placed blind faith and love, is actually a diabolist out to destroy them, drive them made, or enslave them.  Crowley used this technique often.  The students who confront their fear and conquer it achieve a higher neurological awareness.

"It is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take "magical weapons", pen, ink, and paper;  I write "incantations" - these sentences - in the "magical internal linklanguage" i.e., that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth  "spirits", such as printers, publishers, booksellers, and so forth, and  constrain them to convey my message to these people. The composition and distribution of this book is thus an act of internal linkmagick by  which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will."

"Within the internal linkmemory of man we have had the Pagan period, the worship of Nature, of internal linkIsis, of the Mother, of the Past; the christian period, the worship of Man, of internal linkOsiris, of the Present. The first period is simple, quiet, easy, and pleasant; the material ignores the spiritual; the second is of suffering and death: the spiritual strives to ignore the material....The new Aeon is the worship of the spiritualmade one with the material, of internal linkHorus, of the Child, of the Future."

All advanced thinkers, all men who realize the divine plan, desire and internal linkintend the solidarity of humanity; and the patriot in the narrow and infuriated sense of that word is a traitor to the true interest of man. It may be neccessary, now and then, to defend one's own section of mankind from aggression; but even this should always be done with the mental reservation: "May this war be the nurse of a more solid peace; may this argument lead to a better understanding; may this division lead to a higher union."... The deliberate antagonizing of nations is the foulest of crimes. It is the Press of the warring nations that, by inflaming the passions of the ignorant, has set Europe by the ears. Had all men been educated and travelled, they would not have listened to those harpy-shreiks. Now the mischief is done, and it is for us to repair it as best we may. This must be our motto: "Humanity First."

"My observations of the Universe convinces me that there are beings of intelligence and power of a far higher quality than anything we can conceive of as human; that they are not necessarily based on the cerebral and internal linknervous structures that we know; and that the one and only chance for mankind to advance as a whole is for individuals to make internal linkcontact with such Beings."
