Liber AL vel Legis
Liber ALvelLegis sub figurâ CCXX as delivered byXCIII = 418toDCLXVI A∴A∴ Publication in Class A Introduction IThe Book 1. The Author called himself Aiwass, and claimed to be “the minister of Hoor-Paar-Kraat”; that is, a messenger from the forces ruling this earth at present, as will be explained later on. How could he prove that he was in fact a being of a kind superior to any of the human race, and so entitled to speak with authority? 2. The study of these passages necessarily demands supreme human scholarship to interpret— it needs years of intense application. This matter is best studied under the Master Therion, whose years of arduous research have led him to enlightenment. On the other hand, the language of most of the Book is admirably simple, clear and vigorous. 3. 4. IIThe Universe This Book explains the Universe. The elements are Nuit— Space— that is, the total of possibilities of every kind— and Hadit, any point which has experience of these possibilities. IIIThe Law of Thelema* Related:  4/24

A.'. (Argentium Astrum -- the Silver Star) as well as others by members of the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis -- Order of the Eastern Temple) (founded by Theodor Reuss and Karl Kellner in 1895). These two organizations work together to promote Thelema. The 'Class' is a OTO-assigned indication of the relative importance of the document. Note: the OTO has claimed copyright on some of these documents (even though many are technically in the public domain by prevailing copyright laws); however, OTO texts have long been widely available on the web for non-commercial reproduction.

IOT North America (Alert: High amount of personal opinion about to appear! You are warned!) The internet has done a wonderful job of allowing people to have easier access to magical documents and materials. In the course of a year, a person can easily familiarize themselves with several different kinds of magic from runes to tarot to Hermeticism and shamanism. No longer is one forced to accept what meager materials one can find though the local book store or from a friend. What this has caused, unfortunately, is quite a bit of confusion. The truth is that these eclectic magicians are missing an absolutely essential key to what it is that defines a true Chaos magician: Creativity. Anyone can read a book on magic and spit back whats contained within it. These are all unimpressive tricks and mental illusions. The true Chaos magician has the ability to give birth to new and unusual things. Paradigm shifting isnt simply about putting on a new mask for the year, the month, or even the moment. Creativity!

Gnostic Society Library: Sources on Gnosticism and Gnosis Almost all of the several dozen internet sites with collections of texts similar to our own obtained their material by directly or indirectly copying some files present at the Gnosis Archive. Ours was perhaps the first major collection of such texts to appear on "the web" in 1994, and thus has served as a source for others creating "their own" collections. Unfortunately transcription errors, typos, and primitive HTML formatting were present in the massive amount of material added to the Gnosis Archive in our first years; in a repeated process of "copying" they have been very widely propagated around the internet. The Equinox Silence as a Privilege | Trigger Warning Privilege is an increasingly common idea in political parlance, describing unearned circumstances affecting outcomes between groups. Yet privilege benefits from its own unearned circumstances: fewer competing ideas, limited—if any—rigorous debate, and more dangerously, the excoriation of nonconformists. The Internet provides even the most obscure idea a collective voice. Within moments, social media and blogs unite once unmatched voices, propelling ideas into prominence. There isn’t any shortage of people writing about privilege. And that’s just a short list. Occasionally, advocates suggest that they only desire people to recognize their privilege. “If you are a person with a lot of privilege (i.e. a white, straight, able-bodied, class-privileged, cisgender male or any combination of two or more of those) and you call yourself being against oppression, then it should be part of your regular routine to sit the hell down and shut the eff up.” C.S.
