Aleister Crowley

Data di nascita: 12. Ottobre 1875
Data di morte: 1. Dicembre 1947
Altri nomi: Alexander Crowley, Ալիստեր Կրոուլի

Aleister Crowley, il cui vero nome era Edward Alexander Crowley , è stato un esoterista, artista, scrittore e alpinista britannico.

Figura assai controversa, è considerato il fondatore del moderno occultismo e fonte di ispirazione per il satanismo.

Uomo di vasta cultura, è considerato una figura chiave nella storia dei nuovi movimenti magici. A Crowley è attribuito il maggior tentativo di creare una «religione magica» per l'epoca contemporanea e la sua influenza sul coevo ambiente magico è stata fondamentale.

„But exceed! exceed!“

—  Aleister Crowley, libro The Book of the Law

II:70-71.
The Book of the Law (1904)

„Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.“

—  Aleister Crowley

Introduction.
Origine: Magick Book IV : Liber ABA, Part III : Magick in Theory and Practice (1929)
Contesto: Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.
(Illustration: It is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take "magical weapons", pen, ink, and paper; I write "incantations" — these sentences — in the "magical language" ie, that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth "spirits", such as printers, publishers, booksellers and so forth and constrain them to convey my message to those people. The composition and distribution of this book is thus an act of Magick by which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will.)
In one sense Magick may be defined as the name given to Science by the vulgar.

„Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I, and what shall be the sign?“

—  Aleister Crowley, libro The Book of the Law

I:26.
The Book of the Law (1904)
Contesto: Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I, and what shall be the sign? So she answered him, bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.

„Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler.“

—  Aleister Crowley

Ch. 48.
Contesto: Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler. Physical ability and moral determination count for nothing. It is impossible to perform the simplest act when the gods say "No." I have no idea how they bring pressure to bear on such occasions; I only know that it is irresistible. One may be wholeheartedly eager to do something which is as easy as falling off a log; and yet it is impossible.

„I chose therefore the name.
"MAGICK"
as essentially the most sublime, and actually the most discredited, of all the available terms.
I swore to rehabilitate
MAGICK,
to identify it with my own career; and to compel mankind to respect, love, and trust that which they scorned, hated and feared. I have kept my Word.“

—  Aleister Crowley

Introduction.
Magick Book IV : Liber ABA, Part III : Magick in Theory and Practice (1929)
Contesto: In my third year at Cambridge, I devoted myself consciously to the Great Work, understanding thereby the Work of becoming a Spiritual Being, free from the constraints, accidents, and deceptions of material existence.
I found myself at a loss for a name to designate my work, just as H. P. Blavatsky some years earlier. "Theosophy", "Spiritualism", "Occultism", "Mysticism", all involved undesirable connotations.
I chose therefore the name.
"MAGICK"
as essentially the most sublime, and actually the most discredited, of all the available terms.
I swore to rehabilitate
MAGICK,
to identify it with my own career; and to compel mankind to respect, love, and trust that which they scorned, hated and feared. I have kept my Word.
