Years ago there was a formation that resembled the Lamen of O.T.O., it would take quite a search to dig it out now. Anyways, it looks like they might be at it again! What do you think?

Bit of a stretch i would say, looks like a bunch of overlapping concentric circles to me.

What about the tip of the green pentagram on the right pointing directly at the grapshot?

Lamen of O.T.O ... What do you think?

Thinking is forbidden, o man, unto thee. However ...

I do not think I see anything remotely resembling the "OTO  Lamen," which looks like this ...

I think I see a collage of emblems in what you refer to as a "Lamen," which appears to be lifted from the jacket of a book.

Yes, the cropper and the jacket-topper have the same general configuration of three circles, but there's two extr do-dads in the "Lamen," and otherwise they look just as unalike as could be.

Stretch to the breaking point.

@Shiva there was a crop formation that resembled the O.T.O. Lamen a long time ago which I can't find a picture of now, I'm saying that this latest one has some similarities with The Invoking Hexagram of the Beast 666 from the cover of the second revised edition of Liber Aba.

grapshot

What is grapshot? There are no pentagrams in the crop circle.

There aren't still people who believe crop circles are some alien/paranormal phenomenon, are there? Even after all the corporate logo crop circles, demonstrations of how they are made, etc?

@ignant666 grapshot are smaller peripheral circles next to a formation. There is a green pentagram in  the right hand circle of the hexagram and its tip is pointing to where the grapshot is in the formation, its not in the hexagram diagram 😀

A word new to me, and one that produces one (1) google hit when searched with "crop circle", and zero (0) hits when searched with "crop circles" plural.

Probably best to define very obscure jargon you use- this is clearly not even close to being a common term. Do you know the origin/source of this word?

@ignant666 Sorry my bad, it's 'grapeshot', it's from a book called Vital Signs by Andy Thomas, it is a specialist field.

I see. But I'm having a hard time twisting my reality into what you are seeing. Fear not (fear cripples Will, you know), for the study of these crop scribbles is interesting.

I found one that was rather interesting from several viewpoints. These were published in Blazing Diamond along with 20 or so others. The following pair topped the charts. This is the Crop-circle-Design ...

Contrasted with this one ...

... which is an old HPB diagram, cleaned up by Bailey, titled Solar and Planetary Hierarchies. A modified Tree of Life can easily be imagined.

You are on the right track. Please re-apply your efforts and perhaps find a couple pics that at least resemble each other in some sort of detailed manner. It is completely understood about "not finding" some Lost Word or Pic - I had to search two borg-devices to find these two I posted ... because my mentat could not remember where the silly things were published.

What is grapshot?

It is a wagering game, more commonly called "Shooting Craps" - what'a name. Call in the QBLists.

After a little re-consideration, I decided to look into the phenomenon of "Crop Circles" There are two conclusions I came too, that 1)) Crop Circles are a man-made hoax, or 2) like "Fairy circles " (Perfectly round circles of mushrooms) No complete explanation has been arrived at for either occurrence.    The ancient Hermetic scholars were right, our world and universe are made up of unalterable geometric laws that are the basis of the universe and our individual existence. Even the earth is a living organism.  Nothing new or profound I realize.  But a delightful diversion.  I live by my motto: "What Would Crowley Do"?

Good Lord and the Fairy Circles!  Have you lost your Will? Mind? Sanity?

I don't want to be reading about how you turned into Nietzsche or Norman Mudd.

Please control yourself and consider What would your Angel recommend? ... while realizring that Crowley would throw a Yi King.

@shiva "I don't want to be reading about how you turned into Nietzsche or Norman Mudd"    You mean dying a penniless madman?  Perish the thought.  I hear what you are saying.  Follow my own Will, not anyone else's.

Yes. That is part of the consequences of actually doing what one thinks Crowley would have done. If it's just consulting the Yi King, then the outcome will be mild. No karma. No blame.

But to, say, make a post while pretending you are Crowley, well, that would require a complainer, the shire-reeve, a judge, a doc, and an attendant.

Perish the thought.

Ompehda!

@shiva Pretend to be Crowley?  That would be insane.  Who could fill his shoes?

There are currently a few contenders. Their names appear here from time to time, as posters reference some other person, often an Ip or such. I haven't met any of them, so I am unable to say if they hold up, or not.

Congratulations. You have passed your cognition, reading, and psych examination. I guess it's okay to wonder what Crowley would do, as long as you don't identify and do.

This is one thing I see with some Thelemites, they imitate Crowley,just following what he did,to the degree where they follow his diaries, which, while inspirational, were not meant to be used as a manual.

Crowley pointed the way, but merely parroting him is not the idea.People who do that are not really following their Will. 

Too many people seem to want to turn Thelema in to just another religion.

Too many people seem to want to turn Thelema in to just another religion. 

Actually, they want to turn the world into a reflection of themselves, thus creating reality in their own image. Of course, in 99% (I'll be generous and reduce that to a very optimistic 93%) of the known and verified cases, their "self" is that imp-demon, the lower self.

Thelema is not exempt from infiltration by materialistic desires and ego-enhancing practices. Nothing in form or with a name is so exempt. Luckily, the carnal damage is generally constrained to The Lesser Octagon known as The Outer Order. Certain earthy diseases, such as ego-inflation often run pandemically through The Inner Order. Only in The Supernal Realm is one free of religion and self-imp-ort.

This is why we try to be in the world, but certainly not of it.
