You are of course correct that i was referring to "Cunt #2", and not to "Cunt #1". Apologize to all for my shameful confusion of the two.

And i cannot believe i never got the "Breeze" and "blocking" references in the  Big Blue Breezeblock epithet before; thanx, JB!

I wouldn't mind him "garner[ing] all the kudos, the credit and the praise", if he would just publish the damn work- he is "good at editing Crowley books", and should do some of that, and less duplexing off.

That would be, "Caliph" and founder of the (c)OTO, an alcoholic who sold the Thoth tarot deck rights to U.S. games for $150 "beer money", at a time when he did not own those rights.

But the sale was later deemed invalid because it was not his to sell I understand.

Dubbed by AC "Cunt #1", or, more decorously, "Hymenaeus Alpha". An old friend of Shiva's.

Note taken. Cunt #1=McMurtry. With friends like these "who needs friends" I always say.

I'm curious @Shiva how many people have you met or known that actually knew Crowley?

You met Israel Regardie. McMurtry is another. Fratar Aquarius? Any others?

I was 11-12 when i first read Confessions. I did not get lots of things, but i looked things up in reference books. At least you have the internet to try to figure out his jokes and references! And all of us to help, of course.

And lord will you learn a lot if you are diligent in pursuing his jokes and references.

This is how i've been doing most of my learning thus far. Listening and reading on Lashtal and asking questions. Searching the internet. And sometimes using the Crowley books like encyclopedias.

The amount of references and inside jokes in Confessions is abundant.

"Cunt #1" is capable of some very good work when he isn't too busy hanging with porn stars and has-been musicians.

[Note to Mr. Blow: If you have had sex with Sasha Grey, you may have something in common with certain OHOs]

Note taken. Cunt #2 is Mr. Breeze.

I wasn't aware of the gossip. But i'm not surprised. When Sasha wrote her book Juliette Society about a young lady invited into a world of sex and orgies I figured it was semi autobiographical about her mingling with elites of the world after she became a famous porn star.

I worked with Sasha in 2007 when she was 18 on her first big Gangbang. She's very smart and very nice in person. Not my type really. I never sought out her work.

She was a big sensation at the time and I was gaining notoriety and working my way up the ranks as a cocksman.

I wouldn't call it sex. More work than sex. There were 15 guys and Sasha. It was not the most grotesque scene I participated in but pretty close. The shoot took all day and it was quite the clusterfuck.

Sasha's boyfriend Ian sat on a couch behind the camera watching the action for 8 hours from about 10 feet away.

Toward the end of the day when I jokingly suggested to the director John Strong that we end the scene dramatically by cumming in Ian's mouth rather than Sasha's neither of them thought that was very funny.

The Big Blue Block and Breezeblock info is entertaining. Most of my friends these days are British and they are constantly filling me in on their slang and colloquialisms.

I think it's still in litigation.

Repositioning the basic premise: I never met or knew the Caliph. He was only mentioned as being my "friend" in mockery of that term. We were enemies. My Guru Grand Mistress was the boss ans she was his "real" enemy. I was just a side issue. I never wrote to him or had a phone chat.

The following folks knew Crowley, and I met them: Aquarius, Regardie, Culling. The latter two were mail order brides correspondence students under AC. Three members were slumming in Hollywood and they met Cameron; I missed that one.

Regardie you met at a party and he told some cool stories and talked about reviving Thelema as I recall. This was around 1965? This meeting pre-dated the beginning of Solar Lodge?

Aquarius played a major role in Solar Lodge and was a good friend I presume? But he died in 1965 so you didn't know him too long?

(Apologies, I have read Inside Solar Lodge i'm just not remembering everything)

Culling? You mean Louis T. Culling? What was your relationship with him?

Posted by: @shiva

I'm confused. Regardie and Culling clearly were not mail order brides. Regardie worked with Crowley in person no? But Culling was a student via the US Postal service?

Three Solar Lodge members met Cameron. But who's Cameron?

Culling was at the same "meeting," which was a wake for Aquarius, whose ashes sat in an urn on the table. Aquarius had "commissioned" Solar Lodge, verbally and with a silver talisman that came from Crowley via Jane Wolfe. Then he died. Then there was a wake (world?). Then we carried out his orders. All in '65.

I visited him every week (and some weekends) for about 1.5 years.

Louis T. He was at the wake. He told great stories to Regardie and myself. The had the "magical voice." I never saw him again (or Regardie). Much later, Culling gave Frater Luna the whole IX* info, all mixed up. Then he signed over The Order of the Palladium (Vaughn) to Luna, who I suggested sign it over to OTO, which he did. Then he (LTC) wrote Sexual Magic(k?), and spilled the secret to the general public. Then he died.

I'm confused. Regardie and Culling clearly were not mail order brides. Regardie worked with Crowley in person no? But Culling was a student via the US Postal service?

I may have put that improperly. Regardie worked for and with Crowley. Aquarius worked under Crowley via a joint effort of the US Mail and His Majesty's Mail, whatever they call it. As far as I know, Culling (and all other member's of Agape Lodge) never met Crowley in person. Achad, Germer. Wolfe are the only one's I can think of who had personal contact.

Posted by: @elitemachinery

But who's Cameron?

Marjorie Cameron, wife of Jack Parsons, Babylon herself in physical format, referred to herself simply as "Cameron," and she insisted others call her by that name.

- Perhaps we could return to topic with a discussion of the relevance of this "deliberate error" to the hieroglyph strategically covered by a phial of Abramelin oil in the baby-faced photograph?

Yes lets
So lets hear more about this story for those that don’t know.
what was the deliberate error and what are the speculations on the reason why ?

In the first place, I wonder how anyone could know that the error was deliberate? The fact that Crowley needed to have the verses from the reverse of the stélé translated suggests that he didn't know how to translate hieroglyphs into English. I seem to recall reading that Crowley had someone at the Museum make a replica stélé for him. If that was the case, I doubt that the Museum would have been prepared to change one of the hieroglyphs at Crowley's behest. If there was an error, therefore, it seems likelier to have been accidental rather than deliberate.

Agreed. The error wasn't at Crowley's behest but it was, nonetheless, deliberate. And, as @therealrtc has noted, it is obscured by the phial in 'that' photo...

I recall the same thing. Maybe it's actually a fact. I do not recall that it was a museum employee, but I do recall that he commissioned someone to make him a copy. Theoretically, that copy took the route:  AC > Yorke > Germer > Solar > McMurtry > (c)OTO. Exploration of this route leads to off-topic meandering. It might be easier to go to Cairo to see the original than to attempt a glimpse of the copy.

Maybe it was introduced by an idealistical employee who wanted to make sure the copy would always be distinguishable from the original?

Lulu farms out printing to different printers. Depending on lockdown, or sneak in and work, anything can be happening in Little Lululand. After you read my book, you will post notices on LAShTAL about my sanity. It will be fun defending myself, or confessing, whichever seems right in the moment (right action: see Buddhism).

The RTC book is, of course, purposely being delayed because you want it now. Anything can happen in a print shop or FudUx truck during a plague. It will come in its own time, as slowed down by the universal whatnot. My tally shows: Strike One! Stricken Number Two is pending Iff's Revelation, which has been pre-certified to sink the fairy ferry,  eLGMOR.

@the_real_simon_iff

I've looked into this before. If I understand my scrawl correctly, the hieroglyph (ar n) comprised of the signs for "eye" and "water" means "son of" or "engendered of". The hieroglyph (rn) in the reproduction Crowley commissioned is comprised of the signs for "mouth" and "water" means "name". This latter interpretation requires that we take the sign for eye with the pupil missing to be the sign for "mouth". The sign of the empty eye can also be a sign for 'to' or 'for', I believe. Caveat: I know next to nothing about the ancient Egyptian language. I'd welcome anyone with the requisite knowledge to correct me on any of this.

Unfortunately I haven't recorded my sources for the above information. I know that I trawled through various dictionaries that may have been available to Crowley. Another source is of course The Holy Books of Thelema (Weiser, 1983), which contains at least two analyses of the stele. I don't have my copy at hand, unfortunately. 

How the hieroglyph for "name" (assuming that's what it is) would change the meaning (or obliterate it, for that matter) of the text in this case, I couldn't say. Additionally, how one determines whether or not this was a deliberate discrepancy is not readily clear to me. Neither is it clear to me how one could determine whose intention it was to introduce the discrepancy, assuming it was deliberate.

There is no variant in Gardiner's sign list for an eye sans pupil, but the original penmanship is curious.

hgcomp

(This image uses the European system of transcription.)

It seems the scribe wrote this in cursive, which is reasonable as it's a religious text, but there is a very 'mouthy' quality to his eye or otherwise an ocular quality to his mouth. In the realm of the normal, I'd say the copyist simply forgot to dot his eye; but we here on LAShTAL have to look more deeply into these things, don't we?

I'll try to make a deeper study into this once I've fully woken up.

@the_real_simon_iff - "Can you see behind the oil phial? How do you know such things?" - May we use the oil can as a metaphor for your absolute unwillingness to even accept the possibility of a problem with Crowley's fiction? As with your insistence that Crowley included the squiggles (above '24' and '89') to indicate a reduction in space between two pairs that are virtually spooning each other!

Not all photos are obscured by an oil can - D'Oh!  That you were unable to assimilate this demonstrates my point. 🤪

So @therealrtc regards asking for evidence of his claims as "absolute unwillingness to even accept the possibility of a problem with Crowley's fiction"?

And AC possibly even using proofreaders' marks is an idiotic and ridiculous suggestion, when it is so clear that the squiggles around two pairs of numbers in the cipher in one chapter mean we must rotate counterclockwise (in the opposite direction to which these squiggles were made) in solving the 'grid page' problem in another chapter of AL.

It is possible i am mistaken in the argument RTC is making here, since i have only his many months of many-times-a-day posts about his claims to go on here, and haven't yet gotten a copy of the book dues to my stupidity and/or RTC's beglamor.

Perhaps you would care to explain how the missing pupil in the eye - an omission most likely by the copyist of the stélé - is another example of "Crowley's fiction".

@therealrtc You may, we not. I never ever actually checked on this before today. It has nothing to do with your agenda or your alternate timeline. A misspelling. He hid it. Why he just didn't fill in a new pupil is beyond me. Still, I see no problem with his fiction in reagard that his replica stele isn't perfect. He printed it later in color with the misspelling. So maybe the bottle didn't hide anything but just stood where it stood? But I am sure you have a wonderful conspiracy theory about it.

Now that the light of the wake(-ing) world has gotten away with the shadows of Morpheus over my sight, I've realized the error of my previous assessment.

a procession of flesh and bone

(And would you believe I can read cursive Egyptian better than cursive English?)

I consider this new consideration to absolve me of any vow to rework the text around a mouth.

A possible meaningful coincidence with this hieroglyph change:

The Tower card often has an eye depicted on it yet its Hebrew letter is "Peh" - "Mouth".

Yes, that in Egyptian hieroglyphs mouths don't have eye folds occurred to me as well. When I wrote my comment I had in mind a conspiratorial suggestion that Crowley (or some other) had attempted to hide a clue in the reproduction of the stele, perhaps by intending a change in meaning. If that were the case, then reading the 'eye' as a 'mouth' poses no obvious problem. 

Short of a written or otherwise preserved record of intent, I still don't see how we come to know or have any confidence in the suggestion that the iris was left out intentionally or by whom. While I'll admit the suggestion that it was done so in order to ensure that one could tell the original from the copy is certainly plausible, it's hardly the simplest hypothesis -- in the absence of a record of intent it requires that one presuppose it. It also suggests a rather preposterous immodesty on behalf of the commissioned artist. Surely the early 20th century copy of the stele bore exceedingly little resemblance to the ancient original on even superficial inspection.

But after you read them, you will be an expert for having seen for yourself. Then you can claim "authority" when commenting on RTC's theories, proof, or lack of either. Ignant is now suffering the Frater DDS syndrome; he requires "authority" (gained by grabbing the evidence). You will both become "leaders of a school of thought" (after you publish your own thesis, and if you live through the LAShTAL reviews and subsequent inquisition.

I would like to see the copy that Crowley had made. In the reproduction of Nuit in the frontispiece of The Equinox of the Gods, Her Body is more green than blue. Whilst that may be more due to the colour printing quality at the time (1936), it would be good to check with Crowley's dummy.

I agree with this. The omission could equally be inadvertent as deliberate.

It needn't even have been an omission. There's also the possibility that the iris was removed.

Yes, it's a possibility, but a very unlikely one I'd have thought. The reproduction by Lutz - admittedly low-res - shows on cursory examination no sign of tampering. Perhaps more to the point, what would be the motive? What change in meaning would be brought about?

what would be the motive? What change in meaning would be brought about?

More of Ol' Fakey's fake fakery, of course, you naive man you.

Yes, it's a possibility, but a very unlikely one I'd have thought.

Agreed.

I'm glad you asked.

flesh and bone revisited

So the meaning of that portion of the stele of revealing would go from,

Ankh-ef-en-Khonsu, <True of> Voice, son of the like titled Ba-sa-en-Mut, borne of the Chantress of Amun-Re, Lady of the House, Ta-nesh<et>.

to,

Ankh-ef-en-Khonsu, <True of> Voice, son of the like titled Ba-sa-en-Mut, divine name of the Chantress of Amun-Re, Lady of the House, Ta-nesh<et>.

No-one with an iota of ambition would want to be merely "borne of the Chantress" when they could be "divine name of the Chantress". It's all falling into place now.

So Ta-neshet goes from being Ankh-ef-en-Khonsu's mama, to his alter ego. Stranger things have happened, said Elagabalus.

Here are some definitions I've just taken from Budge's dictionary. According to this, you'll notice that without the 'god' determinative, rn just means 'name'. Some might call that a mistake on my part, but I call it a happy accident.

Exciting news- my copy of eLGMOR has been printed, and is even now on its way, coming again from Agawam, Mass, where they apparently print all of RTC's books (Shiva's is coming from Chicago).

Arriving Saturday, if the gods, and any outstanding beglamors, be willing.

I think that when it comes to beglamors, the well has run pretty dry.

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,

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.
My copy of eLGMOR still awaits printing.

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

When will the mail-man (or sometimes mail-woman recently) arrive?

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.

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.

Sounds like you are beginning to get into the thick of it. enjoy

It appears I ordered the Inauguration of Horus instead of Elgmor.   I think because that was linked on a thread too. 

 

@thearthuremerson Would you care gifting me your copy of Elgmor?  My email is christibrany at naver dot com we can hash it out?

Pupil

Holy Books of Thelema (while bw picture of Stele has pupil, a drawing per translation is pupil less in Gaza...

i will have to rout around for a few more, but frankly this whole anomaly is an absolutely hoot...maybe the hawk comes back with a pupil from Jeez to spit on those lacking...
