Thank you for that introduction. 

So, following the discussion, it is pointed out that The Book of the Law specifically contradicts the worldview of a literal interpretation of John’s Revelation (at least the kind AC had beed taught). 

Seems super obvious now that you point it out.

These days my mind just goes back to the idea that these are the images (archetypes?) deep in the psyche of the Christian culture. 

I think the Christian mystic begins by imagining themself separate from god. As they begin to experience more unitary states, the ego trips out and tries to explain itself. And so we have all these Christs and Beasts roaming the internet. 

i think it has something to do with that.

I think i may not be alone in saying "Huh?"

Is there some connection between OP, thread title, and last post?

Glad to see Mr O'Brien has found some "strange drugs".

I'm imagining the film trailer:

"By day, he's a mild mannered participant on Lashtal Dot Com. By night, he is the Slanted Hero of the 5th Dimension...

"Fighting for fixed-width fonts everywhere, Alan O'Brien IS....CONTROL-EYE!"

Methinks it is because he has 'fixed' the italics problem by having this thread move to a new page. Perchance.
