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.

„Acts which are essentially dishonourable must not be done“

—  Aleister Crowley

Appendix VI : A few principal rituals – Liber Reguli.
Magick Book IV : Liber ABA, Part III : Magick in Theory and Practice (1929)
Contesto: Acts which are essentially dishonourable must not be done; they would be justified only by calm contemplation of their correctness in abstract cases.

„No event can be fairly judged without background and perspective.“

—  Aleister Crowley

Ch. 23.
Contesto: To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worth while. The natural laziness of the mind tempts one to eschew authors who demand a continuous effort of intelligence. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter.
People tell me that they must read the papers so as to know what is going on. In the first place, they could hardly find a worse guide. Most of what is printed turns out to be false, sooner or later. Even when there is no deliberate deception, the account must, from the nature of the case, be presented without adequate reflection and must seem to possess an importance which time shows to be absurdly exaggerated; or vice versa. No event can be fairly judged without background and perspective.

„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.

„But exceed! exceed!“

—  Aleister Crowley, libro The Book of the Law

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

„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.
