Proofreading? Too much, yes. Nothing personal, I'm just doing my job: enduring.

Why the delay? 

@therealrtc Why did you wait till April 1 when everything was settled 4 weeks before?

I wait because I want others to "enjoy" your book too, that's all. And nobody has it so far...

And of course please don't count on "my destruction" having anything to do with your agenda, it will be just simple logic...

Also, as I recall reading on this very website, some years ago, the paraphrases relate to a chapter from the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead and not the stele. 

Your zeal to discredit Crowley is the main issue that prevents you from being a serious or accurate researcher. The verses of the stele that Crowley based his paraphrases on are taken from a chapter of the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which means, as usual, you are seeing villains where none exist.

Fedex, in their infinite wisdom, has shipped my book ...

This is rather common for sellers who us Fedex/USPS hybrid mail. Any item gets picked up by, or taken to Fedex. Fedex then puts it on a plane to the nearest Fedex depot near you. Then they save gas a people-employess by dropping it in the USPS box ... so that USPS can do the grunt work.

I'm sorry this bothered you. It does not bother me, being wu. Well then, wu has been known to rant and rave, saying, "How stupid can this system be?" He also does mental arithmetic and geography and logistics, then realizes that he has come un-wued again.

Not so much bothered, as amazed.

The boring old Post Office would have just driven it from Agawam a few miles to the sorting center in Springfield Mass., and then trucked it from there to the sorting center in Poughkeepsie NY, and then to me, with the package traveling about half the distance twice as fast, with less fuel used in the process, and i would have probably posted a review already.

My package, well rested after 14 hours, has finally left Breinigsville Penn., and has now been handed off to the Post Office for delivery, from a place considerably further from me than where it was printed. Probably the taxpayers are subsidizing Fed-Ex through this baroque system.

After 3 days of Fed-Ex flying or driving my book many hundreds of miles around the Northeastern US, in a seemingly random pattern that is doubtless of deep Qabalistic significance if subject to sufficient analysis, and then allowing it to rest after such strenuous travel, it was passed off to the US Postal Service early this morning, and is now at my local PO, and will most likely arrive today.

I have been sharpening my forensic dissection, and flensing, knives in preparation. Lab notes to follow soon, the gods, and postal service, willing.

No, sorry, the B side is "Scream Louder" - I can send you the lyrics, there is no Neverland therein. (See for Yourself on Discogs.) Again, no, sorry, no frogs related workshops; they (frogs) are strictly for personal use.

So, if Aiwass or Crowley was so focused on technical matters, PLEASE give me another comparable instance from the Legis manuscript in which this type of instruction is utilised.  Go on, just one... 🤣 

@therealrtc Okay, just one:

Proofreading marks indicating that only one of both letters can be correct. It's either "abstraction" or "obstruction", but "abstruction" does not exist.

You are welcome

So true.

An interesting finding of this morning is that if Ol' Fakey encrypted the words "a beglamor" into his fake AL cipher, as @therealrtc apparently claims, he was:

1) A very bad speller, and not just American. "Glamour", and thus "beglamour", is among the few exceptions to the "Americans leave out the 'u'" rule that applies to, eg colour, honour. No one ever anywhere, except American tabloids that spell "cigarette" "cigaret", uses/used "glamor".

2) A unique grammatical innovator. "Beglamour" is listed by every dictionary i can find, both physical and online, as exclusively a verb. There is no other usage of "beglamour" as a noun in all the world's literature and writing, no uses of it as a singular noun as RTC apparently claims AC used it, no uses of it as a plural noun, zero, zilch, nada, zip, ever, at least anywhere searchable by google or duckduckgo, or attested in any online dictionary or physical dictionary.

Bart Simpson, or perhaps Calvin of Calvin & Hobbes, liked to verb nouns, but AC liked to noun verbs, a more difficult process, according to RTC.

Our Postal Service only gets one religious holiday, Xmas; the USA is a nominally secular country, at least outside the South. It is listed as "Out For Delivery".

Should be here in 2-3 hours, and then will require a de-virusing period before inspection.

It has arrived. Unpacked with great care to sterile technique.

I know the contents have been untouched by human hands since Tuesday, so i have begun examining it. No idea how long this may take, though it appears brief.

Well, here's egg on my face. I have inadvertently ordered The Inauguration Of Aleister Crowley's New Aeon Of Horus, and not the cipher book at all.

I have now ordered the right one, meanwhile here is my review of the one i got:

Much rhetoric about the New Aeon, zero specific content about much of anything. If the Horus Toy is something other than "jerking off", this is not explained herein.

One of the most worthless books i have ever read, an utter waste of money, time, and paper. Lifespan about 20 minutes from unwrapping to the recycling bin.

My elixir needs to filter down, solve et coagula, and penetrate the thick darkness crusted on all who have partaken too long of the false sacrament.  Only then will the blinding rays of enlightenment banish previous misconceptions.  Thus speaketh the Magicole Hair. 😎

@therealrtc If you can write in it 3 hours, 2 hours should be enough to read it.

Anyway, please don't forget, that a real Lashtalian can rush trough those parts where familiar thread quotes are repeated. 2 hours per read, maximum. Yes.

 

Want to say anything about the other Liber L proofreading marks?

It took me 51 minutes to read the Inauguration, bin it, and walk back and type a post, according to the times of my postings here.

The book i intended to order will presumably take a bit longer, as it supposedly has actual specific content. And i will read it more than once, unless it is as crap as the one i got today. which is hard to imagine. Even Bogus was better than that.

But i can't imagine 88 pages taking two hours to read unless it were very dense scientific material. i often read 200ish page novels in a day though.

My dear Slovenian(?) friend,

Thanks for the praise, if perhaps unwarranted.  My days of being home alone minus wife and one or two shopkeepers for a month are starting to make me um. .  . interesting. 

I already can't give blood because I had beef during the 1980s and 90s in Europe, so imagine if I started eating people left and right?

I would definitely not be centre-fold-worthy by that point.

For one thing, people are fatty. well most.

And for another thing, eating brains is always a risk.

Did you know that eating the brain of a deceased loved one/relative/ vanquished combatant was said to be de rigeur that is standard practise in Ancient Egypt? 

 

Brain or heart.

Thank you for the kind answer. Good Goddess, no, I am not Slovenian - you mixed me with that gentleman from Slovenia, Apostas (or something similar).

I didn't know that, but it makes perfect sense in one way or another. I've heard of eating the liver of the enemy, I think AC mentioned it in MTP.

Ancient Greeks (or Romans? - I've read it in Latin) considered the liver the home of the soul. A Traditional Chinese Medicine is treating depression by promoting liver Qi circulation. I found it in some academic work which I can't read, but the idea sounds great.

Agree. Human peoples have too much fat.

I don't like to talk about genetics, but, of course, you are free to guess.

Maybe one day we will play together & record the session.

Brain & heart (& liver?). Gold und Liebe.

I'm sure that you realize by now that we, as a human race, and especially here on LAShTAL because we know what's going on, have been hurled into the Abyss? That everything is topsy-turvy and juxtapositioned?

And while we are attempting to maintain Wu-wei during these "interesting times," we hear the voices of Corona-zone calling solutions, numbers, letters, and accusations of fraud.

Scenes of horror (Hooror?) arise from chapter three, attempting to sway the wu, but it's a good thing we're (mostly) all aghoris at heart.

the liver the home of the soul.

Yes. In Oriental Med, the "spirit" of the Liver is the "reincarnating ego." It is called the Hun. It's counterpart, the Po, the "animal" soul, found in the Lung, does not survive death. The I survives and comes back for another ride. The Hun is the Wood element (phase), and we gringos call it "AEthyr" or "Spirit."

@the_real_simon_iff - "Okay, just one:

ABAB

Proofreading marks indicating that only one of both letters can be correct. It's either "abstraction" or "obstruction", but "abstruction" does not exist."

- In the first instance, the function of the alleged  proofreading instruction associated with the '24  89' set is defined as "Close up; delete space."

AAA

Take a look at the two pairs in question. Could the digits be any closer together, really? Are you seriously suggesting that Crowley felt a compulsion to emphasise a need to "Close up; delete space" two pairs of two digits that, in all fairness, couldn't get any closer unless they were married!

Second instance - Double-lines beneath the 'a' and 'u' of "abstruction." This specific proofreading instruction is actually defined as either "straighten type; align horizontally" or "Insert hyphen" and not as per your own Crowley-agenda-led misdirection.

In the context you bend Crowley's fiction around, both instructions are meaningless. 🤣

Crowley is here merely emphasising that rather than 4 digits - 2489 - we have 24 and 89. You can argue that it perhaps was not necessary, but the intention is plain. It's a damn sight more likely that your hypothesis that the marks indicate that these are rotating knobs or buttons, like something that Coco the Clown might sport.
