I've been researching an obscure connection to Crowley and another author and the subject of end of the world predictions arose. This is in reference to the year 1997. . .
"This was also the year that many members of the Heaven's Gate cult committed suicide. They believed that the Hale-Bopp comet heralded the apocalypse and they thought that this was the only way they could join an alien spacecraft which they thought was travelling in the comet's wake.
Magician Aleister Crowley also decided that "a devastating world war" would finish us off that year."
I have tried to find the origins of this statement but came up short. Does anyone know where this came from?
It's crap, pure and simple. But Al has Ra Hoor Khuit remind us "I am the warrior lord of the forties, the eighties cower before me and are abased." There's a prediciton. The forties saw element 93 - Neptunium - created over Hiroshime and Nagasaki - only for it to instantly decay into Plutonium and create very big explosions, and the world politics of the eighties were almost entirely dominated by the nuclear weapons issue - leading to the fall of communism.
There's a prediction!
BTW our late brother Gerald Suster once told me to watch carefully a particular date that was then 6 months away. He had somehow divined the date from studying Al.
On that precise day, the Berlin Wall came down.
He never explained how he got the date.
Which day was that? 11/09? 11/10? 11/11? Depending on what you mean by the wall "coming down", arguments lend to either of those three dates.
Okay, it was "discovered" in 1940 but is the rest of your post really accurate?

Personally I allow for the warior lord of the forties and the 80s involving atomic and nuclear arms races. It makes for an interesting theory about the praeterhuman nature of Aiwass to transmit such a thing in 1904. But an online statement about a prophecy given by a now departed individual who can neither lay claim or discredit to this heresay report? Sorry, like Paul I am a skeptic.
oh - and I like 11/11 as the date given because that just makes it too easy to say every year and maybe get it right. Hey, look toward November eleventh for something interesting to happen! 🙂
Or, wait - the twin towers of war? look toward the numbers nine and the number eleven for something there too! Could have been a prophecy, mmm?
I just suspect that there could be a confusion of the planes on such matters...

Thanks for your response. It seems again someone quick to put words in the Beasts mouth! I also fiqured it for rubbish, as I've never seen it before. I have to admit I am not highly educated in the sciences, and not meaning to pick apart your post, I am however trying to understand what you wrote; particularly since Paul questions your accuracy. Uranium 235 (92) becomes Neptunium (93), which was discovered in 1940, from this can be yielded Plutonium (94)? Which was used to produce the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945? I hope we are all old enough on here to remember the 80's and the Berlin wall, there is no discrepancy on the political ethics of that era, at least here in the US. Also, It would be nice to know how exactly Suster came to that conclusion 8). . I do find the numerology of it all interesting, thanks all for your responses. . . Q
Its simple. Einstein and others realised than the atomic structure of the 93rd element was so unstable that it had a half life of zilch. All of the 92 "naturally occuring" elements had been identified and the question as to why only a tiny number of Neptunium alloys had ever been found led to the maths that showed that element 93, when originally created (in the gigantic super-suns that created all of the elements, apart from Helium, from Hydrogen - every modern small star does the H to He trick) ripped apart the super-suns and thus we exist. The creation of Neptunium in the original A Bombs (as opposed to H Bombs) is what devastated Hiroshime and Nagasaki.
Forgive me if I'm missing something really obvious, but that's hardly addressing the original point you made:
The forties saw element 93 - Neptunium - created over Hiroshime and Nagasaki - only for it to instantly decay into Plutonium and create very big explosions, and the world politics of the eighties were almost entirely dominated by the nuclear weapons issue - leading to the fall of communism.
How does this statement and your subsequent "clarification" amount to evidence of a "prediction"?

I've occasionally thought that "Forties" and "Eighties" in 3:46 might refer to age, so I've decided to look at that a little more closely.
Aiwass does not say "'I will be the warrior Lord of the Forties'" and so on. He is making a more generalized statement, it appears, that could refer to states of being. By one's Forties, one has hopefully conquered the elements by which one functions in a body (has become a Lord in the war of life, has reached one's physical peak). The Eighties cower and are abased -- a reference again to the body, perhaps, since, regardless, it must eventually quiver (cower?) and die. Thus, Ra Hoor Khut could be declaring himself to be the force behind both the life of the body and of its destruction, each a force to be admired (and towards which one's intention should be equilibrated).
Consider: "I will bring you to victory & joy (THE FORTIES)
Consider: "I will be at your arms in battle & ye shall delight to slay." (THE EIGHTIES)
Consider also 1:46 introducing Nothing as the secret key and 418, then 2:46 which reads "Dost thou fail? Art thou sorry? Is fear in thine heart?"
This from Wikipedia --
"Ra-Hoor-Khuit (Egyptian: Ra-Har-Khuti), more commonly referred to by the Greek transliteration Ra-Herakhty, means "Ra (who is) Horus on the Horizon." An appellation of Ra, identifying him with Horus, this name shows the two as manifestations of the singular Solar Force."
So, possibly there's more like this in the Book that is suggestive of the or a Crowned and Conquering Child being one who is crowned by the Solar Force in the best of life (Horus) and who then conquers by the Solar Force in the best of death (Ra, who is Horus on the Horizon) and makes no distinction between them.
That's if "Forties" and "Eighties" seem good glyphs or symbols (or actualities) for what may be involved.
At least I seem to be talking it up pretty well...
