As anyone talked about this book yet by Jeffery Evans and  Peter Levenda?

My correspondent friend Stephen Dziklewicz of Starfire (great articles) alerted me to it, for which I am grateful.

I have just started reading it and it is extremely fascinating so far, for sure. 

The main premise is that there is a mathematical key to it all and it's not just Achad's, which does not seem to be refuted; it's also a hidden code of subconscious math regarding the Golden Ratio which was encoded without the Beast's knowing.  Using the verse and chapter numbers.  

 

So it's, coming along interestingly. 

 

Anyone?

As a member of ACDC (Aleister Crowley Dependant Collective) I of course had to buy it, it has Liber AL in the title. So far I have only thumped through it, it is very Typhonian indeed. My first impression was that the Gematria in it did not convince me quickly enough to climb up high on my reading list so it has to wait. I have at least "learned" so far that the "ratio of female to male Alien abductees is 68.34 percent female to 31.55 percent male" and have duly noted that "the decimals are the 9th and 10th Fibonacci numbers". I guess the missing part to 100 percent did not identify as either female or male.

Unlikely that it doesn't. Maybe this:

The following synopsis/description of the book is given:

An arcane ritual reveals a code hidden within Thelema's most holy book.

Over a period of several years, the former head of Kenneth Grant's Typhonian Order in the United States, conducted a bizarre sexual ritual with elements of Thelema, Lovecraft, and the Egyptian mummification ceremony to unlock a mathematical code buried in plain sight in Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law.

Jeffrey Evans, a follower of Aleister Crowley's Thelema since his teenage years, had an encounter on a bridge in Washington, DC, with a being he identified as his holy guardian angel. This being--Karla--provided him with the inspiration to begin a series of rituals incorporating Egyptian and Lovecraftian elements in an effort to traverse the Tunnels of Set: pathways on the "dark side" of the Qabalistic Tree of Life. The ritual, conducted with his wife, Ruth Keenan, employed cross-dressing and bondage as well as Cthulhian imagery and chanting, and resulted in a series of revelations concerning the mathematical code hidden within the verses of Crowley's Book of the Law: a circumstance that Crowley always suspected but was never able to prove, not even with the help of accomplished mathematicians. Evans tried in vain to demonstrate this code to other members of the Typhonian Order, to no avail, but a chance meeting online with Peter Levenda resulted in Levenda's taking a closer look at the data and what he discovered astounded him. He agreed to help bring this discovery to the attention of the general public.

There has been very little new work published in the field of Thelema in the last 10 years or so, at least since the death of Kenneth Grant. Most publishing concerning Crowley has been biographical or reissues of Crowley's own material. This work is a departure from all of that. It is new material, completely unexpected within the Crowley/Thelema/OTO environment, for it offers a new approach to the mathematical nature of Thelema that so far has been based on Qabalah. This work brings attention to the existence of a sacred geometry within the verses of the Book of the Law: a completely unexpected discovery but nonetheless mathematically verifiable. It bridges the gap between Thelema, Freemasonry, and Templarism, as well as Gnosticism, demonstrating a continuum of esoteric thought spanning millennia.

I've personally enjoyed some aspects of Levenda's writing through his Sinister Forces -trilogy.

But Jeffrey employing cross-dressing and bondage to reveal mathematical code hidden within the verse of Liber AL? I don't know about the golden ratio, but Crowley himself at least in his message to Achad and other places highlighted the π/pi sequence:  

 " \ = 418."Thou knowest not." Your key opens Palace. CCXX has unfolded like a flower. All solved, even II.76 & III.47. Did you know π = 3.141593? And oh! lots more!" 

And:

Now I knew that in the value of the letters ALHIM, 'the Gods', the Jews had concealed a not quite correct value of π, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter If I prefix our Key, 31, putting , Set or Satan, before the old Gods, I get 3.141593, π correct to Six places, Six being my own number and that of Horus the Sun

Crowley himself indulged in such things on occasion.

If these things were or were not in accordance with their inclinations, they could still be powerful tools. 

 

I admit I've never been clear on the mechanics of the K'rla Cell Working itself but I can easily see work involving inducing a receptive state for visions and insights as working in this capacity, similar to Crowley's work with the Aethyrs.

K: Crowley himself indulged in such things on occasion.

There are quite a few details in the revealing review - too many to take on right now, but this trans caught my attention. There is no need tostart at the bottom (cross-dress zero), so let's start at the top (The End).

In the IX* of the Order That Fell through Infiltration, there is a certain state/trance that one (or both) falls into wherein the lady assumes a more masculine appearance, demeanor, and intent, while the duke/dude finds himself rendered passive, feminine, and receptive.

This phenom is known within the trade as a Polarity Switch. It is, in fact, a "necessary" prerequisite to "success." However, I have not seen this key (another "key") writ about in the scriptures or the docs.

This phenom may easily be entered by hetero-couples without seeking it. It comes about naturally. But for folks who haven't found the trigger, an angel may come and say, "cross dress!" Why? Just like the initiation ceremonies that attempt to duplicate the the stages of the invisible spectrum of consciousness, cross-dressing attempts to duplicate the phenom of the polarity switch.

Actually, any "deviation" from the straight coupling are modifications added on in order to trigger some phenomenon.

This polarity switch concept is applicable to anything. The relation between the Aspirant and the Angel, the mystical solo inner surrender to the not-self, the reaction to a physical attack being completely passive (wu-wei), etc.

I can easily see work involving inducing a receptive state ...

I see that you understand the drivel that I have expounded.

On an even furtherly expanded note, it should be noted (which it is, now) that after such mystical or magical switches, one (anyone) finds themselves reverted to the "normal" state of whoever they usually are, but a goal of attaining this exalted state in daily life, even while shopping in WalMart or mowing one's lawn, may be set.

Do not confuse this goal/state with hermaphroditism (having both sexes available for reproduction in the same vehicle. The state is more accurately termed andogynism, which implies that the sexes have merged and the resulting (Kether-like) point does not recognize duality.

Heavy stuff, if one can pull it off. Arabic Sativa may help. Heavier artillery may be required to get the initial trigger, but after that, the triggering gets easier. The resulting state does not last. Maybe for some ascetic Tibetan lama, who has really attained, it can be held steady in daily life - but most Westerners (the spawn of the Great Satan) live in an environment wherein the ten-thousand distractions are lined up, ready to present their business card with deals to work out, so it's harder for us to get more than a momentary assumption.

Cross dressing is not required, but it may be necessary for some, in order to "get the idea" in a denser form.

While of course related, you know of course that Pi is not the same thing as Phi. 

Pie Pi = 3.14159... and relates to a circle and it's diameter/circumference ratio

Phi = 1.618033988749... and relates to two quantities, if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio) and is generally represented with a rectangle although of course the Fibonacci sequence relates to it as well, with the outpouring of the spiral.

The nuts and bolts of the Rite involved use of the Death Posture and sensory deprivation.  The Priestess was bound, gagged and blindfolded and stimulated short of arousal.  In such a highly receptive state, the numbers of this revelation started pouring in uncalled for but made total mathematical sense.  It's pretty neat.

Of course an external or Malkuthian approach to this Polarity Switch is not necessary, but helpful for some.  The key is becoming the All/Androgyne internally, as one has been both female and male throughout their various incarnations.

zackly.

 

In the book they also bring up this tendency to happen naturally in shamans, priests, etc.   The merging of the 2 into 1 into None.

Sri Ramakrishna was 'married' to Kali but if I recall he also dressed as a woman from time to time in trance states, becoming the Bride of God.

You (we'all) can find similar tactics employed by the semi-gov operations at Montauk, as described by your associate, Mr. Moon, and revealed more openly by other authors. The Montauk stuff went further and used drugs, sex, pain, electricity.

Regardless of the results, these extremes are examples of forcing a state or a result. But then, so is taking a medicinal catalyst. So I suppose there's nothing wrong with forcing if the participant(s) is fully informed and enthusiastic - there are masochists, you know.

Honestly (you can trust me), holding one's breath for 60 seconds is forcing the issue - and we've all tried that, haven't we? - even though some ancient texts warn against it. One early Liber suggests pushing the envelope in every direction [Hint: Do it while you're young].

I am making no moral/value judgement here (see other places for that). My complaint is against poor morality when the gov undertakes big-time psychic experiments, using outrageous technology combined with brute force in order to develop siddhis that are a little bit science, and a big bit of war. Well, they say, the other guys are doing it, so we need to keep up with the Jones', the Wangs, and the Vlads.

There is absolutely nothing about spirit, liberation, enlightenment, etc mentioned in the gov projects. I don't know if it appears in this K'rla stuff. Does it?

I heretically will not accept Liberace sequences, geometrical shapes, out-of-body jumps with visions of dragons, that sort of thing, unless it results in a practical something that enhances the one thing (under many names) that seems to be missing.

Of course, it doesn't matter what I accept ... but anyway, is it there?

Did Jeffrey beg Ruth for mercy;
to not toy with his heart
like a cat with a mouse game ?

or did he simply answer a math puzzle ?

Did he give his soul to Ruth, Karla or to deal with a mathematical code ?

Which seems odd because to me seems like it would be intuitive. 

This phenom may easily be entered by hetero-couples without seeking it. It comes about naturally.

Gender and also "active" and "passive" sexual roles.  Non hetero partnerships tend to find such polarities on their own, though regardless of orientation the polarities can be mutable, though some tend to get locked in to a particular dynamic. 

Gender mutability itself also can aid in broadening the parameters of identity. 

 

This polarity switch concept is applicable to anything. The relation between the Aspirant and the Angel, the mystical solo inner surrender to the not-self, 

 

In light of the K'rla Cell Working's application of bondage, the dominant/submissive dynamic can also be applied in a similar way.  I've known of people who have approached Work with their HGA from a submissive viewpoint.

 

the reaction to a physical attack being completely passive (wu-wei), etc.

The essence of "soft" martial arts like tai chi.

 

I see that you understand the drivel that I have expounded.

It's hardly drivel, and I do understand it.  I was involved with an extended series of workings involving the Aethyrs myself , which also involved switching between active and passive roles. 

 

On an even furtherly expanded note, it should be noted (which it is, now) that after such mystical or magical switches, one (anyone) finds themselves reverted to the "normal" state of whoever they usually are, but a goal of attaining this exalted state in daily life, even while shopping in WalMart or mowing one's lawn, may be set.

Exactly. And that's part of what I'd mentioned elsewhere, about the gnosis having little use unless applied.  It's great having these experiences in the ritual chamber, but what will you do with them?  I've seen people type up gorgeous visions, but, really, unless they lead to something, how different it is from a really good movie or VR experience?

 

Heavier artillery may be required to get the initial trigger, but after that, the triggering gets easier.

Heavier artillery needs not be libations, other induced experiences also work.  But you know that too.

 

so it's harder for us to get more than a momentary assumption.

 

One works to "fix the volatile", or "crystallize the nucleus", in order to make keep the gains made.  A part of Daimonic Integration.

That does sound pretty neat!  And it makes perfect sense. It works much like I'd thought it would in terms of effect. I've done similar things myself. Sensory deprivation can be very powerful, and cutting off some senses sharpens others, and aids in turning the senses inwards.

Of course an external or Malkuthian approach to this Polarity Switch is not necessary, but helpful for some.  The key is becoming the All/Androgyne internally, as one has been both female and male throughout their various incarnations.

And it goes beyond simply gender polarities, to the reconciliation of all dualities, male and female just being immediate representations. 

 

The Montauk stuff went further and used drugs, sex, pain, electricity.

certainly all effective in their own way.

 

So I suppose there's nothing wrong with forcing if the participant(s) is fully informed and enthusiastic - there are masochists, you know

The dividing line between indulgence and transgression, and from another perspective, between practical and non practical application.

 

One early Liber suggests pushing the envelope in every direction [Hint: Do it while you're young].

Hi.  😉 

 

I don't know if it appears in this K'rla stuff. Does it?

In that it involves inducing receptive gnostic states in order to receive revelations that, ideally, lead to further initiation and work, I'd say yes. 

 

I heretically will not accept Liberace sequences, geometrical shapes, out-of-body jumps with visions of dragons, that sort of thing, unless it results in a practical something that enhances the one thing (under many names) that seems to be missing.

Therein lies the key. Or a key.

This passage struck me

''according to the field theory of telepathic transmission, the dreaming mind of Lovecraft may have served as a sensitive Neuro physiological antenna , transmitting via dreams the knowledge of the activities of the Old Ones.

Such activities being, somehow connected with the Gateway of the Bridge Water Bay Triangle.  That the Triangle is such a Gateway has been well attested to.

In 'Mysterious America' , Lauren Coleman reports a typical incident : Several years ago , an expedition of Massachusetts archaeologists discovered an eight thousand year old Indian burial site on Grassy Island in the Hockomock Swamp.

When the graves were opened, the red ochre within the tombs bubbled and dissolved mysteriously.  And Evey photograph taken of the site failed to develop.'"

Now we're getting somewhere. Mysterious phenomena. I know all about pics that flop or flit. Along these lines, we have pundits/preachers who say that Jack Parsons permanently opened a gateway in Devil's Canyon (Pasadena - where he set off his rockets), and all our present problems are due to this, plus acts by his mentor, Mr Crowley.

There are many similar stories, usually  linked to places and personas, but I only remembered this one because, you know, Mrs (Misters) Parsons and Crowley were involved.
