I have to chuckle because your response raises far more questions than it answers.
There's a traditional understanding of the Qlippoth, and qlippothic entities, that doesn't seem to parse at all with what you're talking about there; in my own experience dealing with qlippothic entities, they are basically these fairly pitiable things, that can certainly mess up someone's life if they end up allowing that to happen, and the purpose (again, from my experience) of working on them (I would say more "on them" than "with them") is so that they can be in a way redeemed and restored to wholeness within your magickal universe.
I would understand of course that other people may have different ideas about them.
So, the questions your post raises: can you explain (briefly and clearly) what are some of these "increasingly explicit" contacts you're talking about?
What possible benefit these "contacts" could provide?
And to bring this back to Crowley (though I would say I basically feel the same way, not by virtue of reading Crowley but by virtue of having practiced the same magick and personally experienced similar results that confirm his conclusions), it seems to me that he was pretty clear in his perspective about never really trusting any entity that's trying to sell you anything on the astral plane without the showing of lots of "proper paperwork" (Ie. kabbalistic proofs), and that with identities being made clear, even angels and gods ought to be dealt with cautiously since they are incomplete and unbalanced creations in relativity to man, and will imbalance you if you are not careful in dealing with them; then how much moreso Qlippothic entities?
I mean again, what do you hope to gain by "understanding the forces"?
Is this typhonianism (again, which I recognize I really don't understand, despite reading a few of Grant's books) looking to bind and redeem these broken "Shells"? Because, while I could get the point of that, nothing "typhonian" I've ever read seems to skew that way?
Is it looking to try to control them for the sake of gaining some kind of power? That would strike me as a considerably more dubious enterprise, though again it doesn't seem like that's the point to me from what little I grasped of Grant's writing.
Is it looking to just collect a bunch of metaphysical gobbledygook that bears no practical use whatsoever in the real world, either spiritually, psychologically, or materially?
Or is it basically a kind of Cthulhu-cult right out of a Lovecraft novel, thinking that the qlippoth are actually great and wise things that will guide them to a kind of spiritual or temporal transcendence and essentially treating them with a tone of either near- or outright- worship?
Because of those last two possibilities, the first seems just pointless to me, and the second outright deranged (not to mention, again bringing it back to Crowley, completely contrary to anything Crowley personally practiced or advocated, and the sort of thing he would have mocked ruthlessly as brainless idiocy); and yet the experience of what I seem to read from those typhonians who's writings I've been exposed to seem to point to it being one of those two last options; which is just baffling to me.
I continue writing this in the spirit of hoping to have something clarified that will help me understand that its in fact something else entirely, that there's some "part" of all this that I've missed from both Grant's books and things like this Niteside tarot, that will in fact make all the typhonian work make sense.
