In The Book of Thoth, under "XX - The Aeon," Crowley wrote:

The time for the birth of an Aeon seems to be indicated by great concentration of political power with the accompanying improvements in the means of travel and communication, with a general advance in philosophy and science, with a general need of consolidation in religious thought. It is very instructive to compare the events of the five hundred years preceding and following the crisis of approximately 2,000 years ago, with those of similar periods centred in 1904 of the old era. It is a thought far from comforting to the present generation, that 500 years of Dark Ages are likely to be upon us. But, if the analogy holds, that is the case. Fortunately, to-day we have brighter torches and more torch-bearers.

Well, a Grand Equinox occurs every 25,772 years, so one-twelfth of that would be 2148 years, or one aeon. Subtract that from 1904 AD/EV and we get 244 BC. So what happened around that date? Crowley tells us (and we all know) that travel and communication were improved (in the occident) by the Romans:

Transportation and communication. The Roman Empire completely encircled the Mediterranean, which they called "our sea." Roman sailing vessels navigated the Mediterranean as well as the major rivers of the Empire ... Transport by water was preferred where possible, and moving commodities by land was more difficult. Vehicles, wheels, and ships indicate the existence of a great number of skilled woodworkers. Land transport utilized the advanced system of Roman roads.
-Wikipedia

So folks got around more easily, right? But what of the Orient? Did things get more consolidated there?

Chin Shi Huang (260–210 BC, was the King of the State of Chin (246–221 BC) who conquered all other Warring States and united them into one kingdom in 221 BC. He ruled as the First Emperor of the Chin dynasty.
-Wikipedia

From this, the name Chin(a) derives - and we all know where that is & who they are.

>:( Now, the so-called (historical) "Dark Ages" started around 400 AD/EV. The fall of the Western Roman Empire did not result from "mismanagement" but from a loss of support of its own citizens, who by 400 generally refused to serve in the army. Taking advantage of this Roman weakness, the barbarians (Germans-Huns-Ostrogoths) invaded and plundered one region after another until the Western Empire was crushed. The fall of Rome didn't mean a total loss of civilization, even in western Europe. But it meant a serious decline of urbanization, education and economic activity, and civilization fell to a low state.

To this, we must add three factors:

(1) Lead.  😮 It has been pointed out that "lead poisoning contributed to the decline of the Roman empire." The ancient Romans, who had few sweeteners besides honey, would boil must (freshly pressed fruit juice) in lead pots to produce a reduced sugar syrup called defrutum ("sugar of lead"), concentrated again into sapa. This syrup was used to some degree to sweeten wine and food. If acidic must is boiled within lead vessels the sweet syrup it yields will contain a quantity of lead acetate. Lead was also leached from the glazes on amphorae and other pottery, from pewter drinking vessels and cookware, and from lead piping used for municipal water supplies and baths.

The main culinary use of defrutum was to sweeten wine, but it was also added to fruit and meat dishes as a sweetening and souring agent and even given to food animals such as suckling pig and duck to improve the taste of their flesh. Defrutum was mixed with garum (a very popular, but expensive and pungent Roman fish sauce used as a condiment and as a medicine) to make the popular condiment oenogarum and as such was one of Rome's most popular condiments. Quince and melon were preserved in defrutum and honey through the winter, and some Roman women used defrutum or sapa (new wine) as a cosmetic. Defrutum was often used as a food preservative in provisions for Roman troops.

(2) Real Darkness.  :-

The extreme weather events of 535–536 were the most severe and protracted short-term episodes of cooling in the Northern Hemisphere in the last 2,000 years. The event is thought to have been caused by an extensive atmospheric dust veil, possibly resulting from a large volcanic eruption in the tropics ... Its effects were widespread, causing unseasonal weather, crop failures, and famines worldwide ... Low temperatures, even snow during the summer (snow reportedly fell in August in China, which caused the harvest there to be delayed); Crop failures; "A dense, dry fog" in the Middle East, China, and Europe.
-Wikipedia

Okay, so all this "dark stuff" actually seems to have started four or five-hundred years after the so called beginning of the last aeon. But I'm sure the "handwriting was on the wall" much earlier.

The decline, seen in retrospect, occurred over a period of four centuries; while some modern historians question the significance of the date, the final dissolution of the Western Roman Empire is widely recognized as occurring on September 4, 476, when Romulus Augustus, the last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, was deposed by Odoacer, a Germanic chieftain. -Wikipedia

(3) Disease.  😛

The Roman Empire suffered the severe and protracted Antonine Plague starting around 165 AD. For about twenty years, waves of one or more diseases, possibly the first epidemics of smallpox and/or measles, swept through the Empire, ultimately killing about half the population. Similar epidemics, such as the Plague of Cyprian, also occurred in the 3rd century ... the severe fall in population left the state apparatus and army too large for the population to support, leading to further economic and social decline that eventually killed the Western Empire.
-Wikipedia

So how does all the above compare to our present-day scenario?

(A) Wars. Most secular Middle-Eastern states are being challenged by an (almost) universal Islamic uprising. Many African states are being torn apart, often with Islamic overshadowing. North Korea and South Korea are still not getting along, and China (Chin-a 😀 )is trading pusharounds with Vietnam, Taiwan and Japan. et cetera.

(B) Disease. The end of the (short-lived) antibiotic era is underway. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are getting more potent and widespread. Pig and bird viruses are proving to be very deadly.

(C) Overpopulation. Antibiotics and modern medicine have allowed the planet's population to soar. There are now more folks on Earth than Terra's natural resources can sustain. The bi-products (waste) of this expanded human biosphere lead to the next factor:

(D) Climate Change. This is the heart of this post and probably of The Coming Dark Age. We all know about how things are getting difficult in the climate department, but readers may wish to see/download my 6-page collection of news stories from the past 8 months (edited for brevity and getting right to the point) at:
https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=85451E141BDB0D7F!131&authkey=!AHApr7AxhKRxodw&ithint=file%2c.pdf

It is likely that those of us who are "older" will not be around long enough to see the whole climate deal, but you "younger" folks will get a pretty good picture, and your great-great grandchildren - to the 12th generation (or so) - are the one's who will be dealing with the results of "our" generation's practices.

I find it interesting that all of us (now living and reading this post) have grown up in a brief antibiotic era, where wonderful inventions were poured out upon our fathers and grandmothers (cars, electricity, x-rays, radio, tv, internet, moving pictures, atomic bombs, travel to the moon, wow!) - maybe back 4 or 6 generations. Crowley grew up right in the midst of most of these innovations, and he lived long enough to see TV and atomic bombs. Then he left, warning us about a coming Dark Age.

Of course, we all need to pay attention to our lives on a daily/hourly basis if we want to be here tomorrow. I have a little spare time left over to send you this note/reminder about where we (humanity) are going ... just as fast as possible. I have no recommendation about how to avoid the coming Dark Age, except to point out that I have not been blessed with little children, and so I don't worry about what my descendants will have to face.

My, this is a missive of gloom & Fraserian doom, and no mistaking it!  (Fraser, for those who don’t know, was not the celebrated author of The Golden Bough here (plus he had a ‘z’ in his name), but rather the dour and sepulchral Scots moaner from Dad’s Army who used to wander around muttering “we’re all doooomed… Doooomed, I tell ye.”)

But, can it be true? 😮 Pass the cyanide, Alice!  However, before contemplating topping ourselves perhaps we should just consider what scant grounds for optimism there may be?  (Tumbleweed drifts past…)  Er, ahem, well just as I was saying…    Joking apart: let’s look at those main headings then.

(A)  WARS
Well there have always been those (Homo sap being the bolshy little chimpanzee that s/he is, can’t seem to help being a touch aggressive).  And there will probably be some more for the foreseeable future – for a while, anyway.  What is of more concern than Wars though are weapons, and if the lunatic fringe manage to get hold of stray atomic warheads, piles of plutonium knocking about… well, you get the drift.  (Reader’s plaintive voice at this point: “But I thought you said you were going to try to give grounds for optimism, Jamie?”)  Er, yes! Well… let’s just move on to the next item then, in the meantime…

(B)  DISEASE
I thought for a moment - ‘til I peeked ahead & saw that it was not so - that we were all lined up for a swift run through the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse here.  Um – maybe medicine will catch up & match pace with the [antibiotic resistant] viruses? *Cheesy grin*  And if not, and all else fails, and although it might be Cold Comfort Farm, at least that would deal with the third ‘problem’, infra:

(C)  OVERPOPULATION
by thinning out the numbers considerably.  Sooner or later, the Catholic Church will have to see sense & revise its barmy stance on contraception, at least.  There may need to be a limitation on large families in certain parts of the world at least, possibly along Chinese lines.  But, as against quasi-Malthusian conjecture, it is arguable whether there are in fact more folk than (insufficient) resources can sustain, since the main problem appears to be their distribution rather than a lack of the same.  What may be of more real concern and actually more of a problem (as touched on in your earlier reference to “waste”) is stuff like the depletion of topsoil and the degrading of quality agricultural land & fresh water by such things as deforestation & pollution in general.

(D)  CLIMATE
This is an unknown, the joker in the pack as it were.  Climate can be very extreme – if the gulf/ jet steam switches off or goes unpredictable, in the words of that old Irving Berlin number there may be trouble ahead (‘but hey, let’s face the music & dance’)

It seems only yesterday (relatively speaking) that we were coming out of the last Ice Age, and we are soon due for another.  How about, if carbon emissions and global warming just about counterbalance each other enough against the coming of the glaciers?  Who’s to say it couldn’t happen (Otherwise, get those shelters ready to withstand those 300 kph gusts…  And part of me has a mind that it wouldn’t be inconceivable for those twin “pillars of the world” whose “time is nigh at hand” to refer to magnetic pole shift – also long overdue.)

I have a grown up son and daughter but don’t think it makes a particular difference from this angle, just as I don’t hold my parents or people of their generation responsible in turn.  As with everything else involved with it, there is nothing to be gained from playing the guilt (or blame) game.

A.C. didn’t actually see a tv service, as this didn’t properly begin in the U.K. until after the Second World War (unless he would have seen one of the approx. 100 sets receiving programmes from 1936 until the outbreak of the war).  But he definitely “saw the wave coming”, as can be detected from his Introduction to the 1938 edition of The Book of the Law:

Observe for yourselves the decay of the sense of sin, the growth of innocence and irresponsibility, the strange modifications of the reproductive instinct with a tendency to become bisexual or epicene, the childlike confidence in progress combined with nightmare fear of catastrophe, against which we are yet half unwilling to take precautions.

Consider the outcrop of dictatorships, only possible when moral growth is in its earliest stages, and the prevalence of infantile cults like Communism, Fascism, Pacifism, Health Crazes, occultism in nearly all its forms, religions sentimentalised to the point of practical extinction.

Consider the popularity of the cinema, the wireless, [insert ‘the television’ here – j.b.] the football pools and guessing competitions, all devices for soothing fractious infants, no seed of purpose in them.

Consider sport, the babyish enthusiasms and rages which it excites, whole nations disturbed by disputes between boys.

Consider war, the atrocities which occur daily and leave us unmoved and hardly worried.

We are children.

We are all treated as imbecile children.

How this new Aeon of Horus will develop, how the Child will grow up, these are for us to determine, growing up ourselves in the way of the Law of Thelema under the enlightened guidance of the Master Therion.

The above was written a year before WW2 broke out, and all this previous talk from A.C. about The Coming Dark Age in The Book of Thoth came from its Darkest Days, when most people’s outlook was hardly upbeat and rosy, with the toss to be decided between being under either Adolf or Joe’s jackboots.  Along with talk about the nuclear bomb being the ultimate weapon, and rumours such as how letting one off would cause a chain reaction in the atmosphere which would frazzle the planet and seal our doom for all of us (see comments regarding Fraser, supra.) 

But nary a whisper about eco-pollution! (Confucius, he say: if we are all going to hell in a bucket, we might as well bring along our spade for the ride…)

Crowley tells us (and we all know) that travel and communication were improved (in the occident) by the Romans:

There is a very literal reading of Aeons here, as being one twelfth part of the Grand Year of almost 26,000 revolutions.  Nobody can make a claim that they each last for 2,160 years, as the Aeon corresponding to Osiris is the only one known which (approximately) matches this period.  And A.C., in the Introduction mentioned earlier, predates it back to 500 and not 244 B.C.  But the whole way in which we perceive time as a species seems up for drastic renewal: Time is not strictly linear at all – it was felt by the Ancients not to be so & such a restrictive view of it is still ignored by various shamen about the planet.  Moreover there is such an acceleration going on at the moment that it is quite conceivable that the length of an Aeon itself can last for different time measures, with the whole concept of mensuration altogether up for revision too.  To take one example: the consciousness of the Aeon of Ma[y]at began to come in forty or seventy (take your pick) years after the inauguration of the Aeon of Horus.  (There may be further ‘temporal’ revisons beyond that, but for the “time being” I’ll settle for Hé[r] as the King’s Daughter reviving the Eld of the All-Father.  Or something along those lines.)

To finish with: I am confident there will be a quantum leap in consciousness involving some form of telepathy of the species, which will assist matters.  There will also be an instantaneous non-local transmission of information along the lines of the “Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon”.  There will also be breakthroughs in harnessing cleaner, safer and more effective fuel and energy sources such as cold fusion and a way to break down and recycle pollutants more effectively to literally their most elemental level.  There will overall be an increasingly ‘Buckminster Fuller’ approach to problem-solving on a terrestrial scale.  But having said all of that, as children we shouldn’t ourselves abdicate responsibility and expect somebody else, some “adult” (some brave Apollo) to come along and work it all out for us, ticketyboo though that would all be.  The situation is so critical that all of the chips are having to be put down on either the red or the black to come up.  The alternative to winning with a handsome result though will be that we are all royally fucked.  But - if we all start thinking that way to begin with, the battle to survive is half lost already.  Wouldn’t you agree?

Yes, that's the idea. Since artificial birth control is a ridiculous dream (China's "one-childe" policy was a step in the right direction, but now they've even relaxed that), nature itself will step in and even the odds. People will die from microbes and jihads, and eventually there won't be enough folks to maintain the present high level of technology. Our present first-world civilization will soon become a legend similar to that of Atlantis and Lemuria. That's when the third chapter of Liber AL will come into play.

Good luck on that as well. Civilizations rise and fall. Nothing ever gets better and better and better. Consider Atlantis, Sumer, Egypt, Rome.

It's too late. Maybe we'll have cleaner systems the next time around, in about 100,000 years (or more). Forget the 2,000-year aeons, which is only an approximate number anyway. Mankind is already planning to split to Mars, and beyond, but that won't work. Star Trek & Star Wars scenarios (living in space) won't work as our asronaughts always came back sick and they're still coming back sick. Sure, they seem to recover, but nobody stays up/out there for years on end.

Yes. And as stated everywhere in scientific assessments: It's already too late. The damage has already been done. Everyone who is alive has already lost the battle for survival. Death and taxes ... remember?

Well, I was comparing things today with things an aeon ago. There isn't a lot of mention about bankers and leveraged economic gambling back in the olde times. There were certainly debtor prisons halfway through the aeon. To escape that scenario, the poor folks escaped (or got shipped) to the New World, where they invented bankruptcy and now live happily ever after (after debt). Borrow until you drop, and then get up and they'll be flooding your mailbox with offers of credit cards only three years later. It's a pretty strange system.

The funny thing is, people don't borrow gold or silver any more; not even paper bills; no, they borrow digital "money" that doesn't even exist in order to purchase food, shelter and transportation, and the shareholders in the bank get even "richer," even though they haven't lent out anything of hard value. Fiat Lux has become Fiat Pseudoaurum. >:(

I think it's the American empire that is doomed and coming to an end, as all empires do ultimately. At some point this may result in civil disorder etc. I don't discount the other observations, but I do think this is a factor too. And before anyone has a go, I'm not being anti-American, it's just an observation.

There is a theory that the dark ages are an anomaly arising from about 300 years of missing history because the calendar was pushed forward to serve the agenda of some ruler of the time. I only mention this as I only heard this rather whacky theory the other day but apparently it has quite a number of advocates.

New Comment to Liber L 1:4

I have tried to put it simply in the note to the last verse. I may add that in the Trance called by me the "Star-Sponge" -- see note to v. 59 -- this apprehension of the Universe is seen as an astral Vision. It began as "Nothingness with Sparkles" in 1916 E.V. by Lake Pasquaney in New Hampshire, U.S.A. and developed into fullness on various subsequent occasions. Each 'Star' is connected directly with every other star, and the Space being Without Limit (Ain Soph) the Body of Nuith, any one star is as much the Centre as any other. Each man instinctively feels that he is the Centre of the Cosmos, and philosophers have jeered at his presumption. But it was he that was precisely right. The yokel is no more 'petty' than the King, nor the earth than the Sun. Each simple elemental Self is supreme, Very God of Very God. Ay, in this Book is Truth almost insufferably splendid, for Man has veiled himself too long from his own glory: he fears the abyss, the ageless Absolute. But Truth shall make him free!

The "social programming" of the Aspirant, the "Existentialism" of the Adept, and the "Garden of Disciples" as seen by the Exempt Adept.

Also, see Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity

The continued wanting to perceive one's self as the "center of the universe", or "Centre of the Cosmos", is eventually, recognized as the problem. Others may call it a sense of "separateness".

Seen as "Compassion" by the Exempt Adept, "Absorbtion" by the Magister, and Chaos by the Magus, the removal of this sense of separateness, accomplished by removing the sense of the separating structure, can allow the beginning of what has been termed "the loosening process".
