    um…food for thought….so wot’s your diet mr k? Having meself always been an omnivore- ark!ark! what does ye suggest as alternatives, for interest’s sake? I quite like lentils at times.

    I reckon myself that kangaroo’s ok, seems they’re ‘free range’, not kooped up.

    I know where you’re coming from, I’ve never visited an abbatoir and I’m too scared to. Might put me off meat f’rever.

    This subject is too vast and complex for these fingers to touch by way of the slow, slow pecking of keys.

    With billions of us sucking from this mother, food IS political.

    No matter our evolutionary ecology, biological niches, Mon-SATAN-O GMO Pimpster, con(tra) Agra, and our dependence on technology– food is more than biological sustenance.

    It is now more than ever socio-political-eco-spiritual.
    I personally don’t believe there’s one path to enlightened eating, but do believe people need to eat more mindfully — FAR MORE mindfully.

    Being somewhat of a naturalist I tend to lean toward a basic macrobiotic approach — eat whole foods locally grown and eat in correspondence with the seasons. Now, if you are a goat herder in the African desert that WOULD include bleeding & milking your goat and drinking a mixture of the two. Hardcore! I would barf, but I’m certainly not going to advise them how to survive in the desert! And I’m certainly not going to promise them magical GMO corn seed that’s so dead it can’t reproduce.

    Hmmm… our food in so many ways, from planting to cultivation has been castrated and putrified. I think all our food, the way it is processed, is filled with death. Death and sugar.

    Whole food, whole life…blah…blah…
    what can I possibly contribute here?

    I choose life, I elect choice, I vote freely to get ME self free. I’d rather sew a few more stitches tonight and then go home and see my son’s shy smile and nurse ma scorpio baby and give PaPa a hug.

    Night. Too much commentin’ this eve. I’m tuckered. I leave this one to the best of you, who have far better webs to weave than I.

    Good on yer, Stevo. Meat is filth. I’ll talk with anyone who doesn’t think so in ten years or so when they’re on the operating table having strings of fat pulled out of their gut, or a triple bypass.

    I hardly trust anything the white man feeds me, as it is…

    OK, can see you’ve got them e-salmon leaping to this one SK. Excellent topic for debate. I drink soy and replace a lot of meat protein w nuts/tofu/seeds and refuse pig because of the way it’s raised, eat free range eggs, fish once a week… But find if I don’t eat red meat a bit I feel very washed out. Try to make it non feed-lot beef as it’s more free range and they don’t mules them like they do to sheep. I care abt food raising, additives, growth hormones, read a lot, spread the word, eat yogurt without gelatine since I discovered it’s made from skin, often the lopped-off ears of pigs who’re raised with stalls they can’t turn in, kept from their piglets, no life… And the ears are where they clip the growth hormone tags banned in the EU because they’re carcinogenic. Aust produces two strains of meat – those without growth hormone implants for the EU market, those with for sadly under-cared for Australian market. Read labels, buy free range. I think we’re omnivores by looking at our teeth, our evolution, our spread, but mass farming has produced monstrous deviate cruelty and cancerous vile practices. Talk to shop managers, request food farmed humanely. Beef and cow’s diary products cause land clearing, lack of diversity, species deceases… We must think before we eat and campaign for treating animals with consideration and kindness. Is a domestic life better than no life? It depends… How can we be veg and be energetic and healthy too? SK, a recipe or two would be much appreciated. Especially some for families in a hurry…

    with much appreciation,

    Hmmm. I’m feelin’ such an ambivilencia. Abortion? such a taboo button, but really, kill it? Is it sentient? At what point? Never does one on that side try even for a moment to convince me there’s no pain. I feel it must be wrong at some point in spite of all my “humanitarian” friends who say with a single voice “protect a WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE.” Ok, but what if IT’s a woman, her choice of life and living, or male what’ds the difference? “The war was wrong when the first child was killed” to quote you.

    But then why bring a creature into this world when he/she/it’s unwanted? More pain triple-fold ahead? I’m so torn. OK, I love the idea of prevention, morning after pill, first trimester conclusions, whatever, so I don’t fit the “pro-life” scheme, but “don’t eat meat – ok to kill something somewhat human and feeling?” What then? I ask you? This has been one of my long-time personal ethical dilemas. Sorry if that’s too thick/deep, but I feel you brought it up.

    I do enjoy your blog, no matter.

    Hot topic indeed…

    My reasons for being a vegetarian
    are more simple, I just don’t like
    meat of any kind, never have.
    I wasn’t raised vegetarian, I just
    decided at a young age I didn’t want to eat that stuff.
    My Mom used to tell me “if you don’t eat meat you’ll be anemic”.
    I didn’t know what an animal rights
    activist was at that age.

    And now.. I have Cats, I do my vegan thing and they do their
    carnivore sick thing and that’s
    cool.

    Differences are cool, keeps it interesting, makes the world go
    around.

    It was me who made the heroin/high horse comment.

    Me, Metal Petal.

    But saying that is not really coming out from behind my anonymous cover, really, is it.

    I am not just repeating politicians’ bullshit, I can come to my own conclusions.

    I spin for a living, I know what bullshit looks like.

    My comment was based on the fact that heroin is damaging to the body and mind of the user and the people around the user. Never touched it myself, but I once loved someone who did. Who is dead now. Ironically Sign O’ The Times by Prince was one of his favourite songs, but perhaps he did not listen to the lyrics closely enough. You can draw your own conclusions about his demise from that.

    Meat is murder, whatever. And I am a failed vegetarian. Wasn’t eating very healthily so decided my reasons for going there were being rendered nonsensical. Maybe it’s the pressure of being a ‘straight’ – having to get up of a morning, go to work, pay the bills, all of that mundane shit – such is my cross to bear. But I like what I do for a living, so I guess I am luckier than some.

    Love your music, love your blog. Just sometimes the preaching gets to me. And won’t be showing up at Centennial Park for a midnight duel- maybe Veale Gardens next time you’re in Adlebrains!

    ——————————–
    Sounds to me like enlightened self-interest i.e. selfishness. (No wonder you reckon that Crowley twit is cool…Crowley was a child-sacrificing bastard with pretenses to arcane knowledge — hermetic knowledge i.e. crapology — however, he was just a fat, decrepit, bald, ugly dude that couldn’t get laid until he said he was “master of the universe”…and if you buy that line you’re not only ripe for a scientologist’s recruitment drive but worthy of a First Class Doctorate in Wanking!! Yes, Evil is Banal. Btw, Crowley also thought that killing children and torturing them was good for him too! Charming man I’m sure!!!!)

    Anyway, my point with this post apart from pissing you off is to unequivocally state that your rationale for being a vegetarian sucks as far as I’m concerned. You might as well stuff your face with a BIG MAC — sorry man, but the logic underpinning your vegetarian diet is as ethically sound as Crowley’s logic for “doing what thou wilt”!!! They both are premised on the criteria of doing something they consider is best for “oneself”…humanity can’t move forward with this type of hedonist ideology…

    Dear Steve,
    You take a strong position here- a very admirable one. A couple of questions come to mind:
    1) Do you eat fish?
    2) Do you use leather products, a part of the meat industry?
    These are persnickety points to some, and are not meant as a ‘gotcha’. Just curiousity; these issues are important to me (but this is not my forum). I respect your views.

    SK I read earlier in you blog about your being bullied at school. Your bulling days at school brought pain to my heart as my son was bullied at school – thankfully only for a short time – as we did something about it and worked with his teacher, the other boy and his parents. My son is now a happy, passionate boy who knows that the bulling was not about him. However, we did get angry and I wish it never happened to him. I have always felt the cord that ties mother and child is something that also shares their pain and happiness. The boy who was bulling my son has now changed his behaviour and they are now friends. We were lucky – I have been told some horror stories.

    I recently bumped into a guy from my old school who was a bully – said he has been in therapy due to his feelings of gulit and shame at what he had done to other kids at our school. Turns out he was being abused at home on a regular basis and acted out at school – said he did not know how else respond to other kids and there was no love in his house. He said that this did not justify his behaviour but wished he had someone to help him. He said he is doing well but this will all take time – he has even caught up with guys he bullied and healed old wounds.

    I guess there is not always a reason or answer and I believe that children are born a blank sheet – and although it has not always easy I always keep in mind that they are children.

    Hope you are ok SK

    Maybe you should link a vegie site to this blog, I don’t want to eat meat, but I do like it when it’s disguised.
    I think I’m willing to convert and no its not to please you.
    I just don’t like the idea of tortured animals, yet I’ve been conditioned to eat them my whole life and I know how lame that sounds,but I think you would find alot of people out there in the same boat.
    Write a vegie book and I’II buy it or recommend a good one, I would be interested, this could be the nudge I need.

    its funny how crowley seems to scare people into extreme comments mostly based on a fiction created by their own moral superiority, show the the evidence ‘Anonymous’ otherwise your claims are accusations that cannot be supported, certainly there are so many inconsistancies on your link that it really is a badly executed peice of propaganda.
    Weather you like him or not Crowley was a brilliant man who explored conciousness as much as freud or jung but used a totally different language, he would have probably hated the industry that has been left in his wake, he had absolutly nothing to do with child sacrifice nor child sex, (i think you’re getting mixed up with the more conventional messengers of god), nowhere in his work does he allude to it at all. as far as being fat and bald and decrepid that may be the case, but so is the pope 🙂 generally his work has stood the test of time, and amalgamated much Daoist thought with a Western tradition, it has been mis represented and misunderstood but if any one took the trouble to read it they in context they would see it is actually quite harmless, unless you don’t like sexual yoga, tantra or the idea that you can manipulate your reality.

    Captainmission..riddle me this…Why is the former Young Australian/Victorian of the Year, child activist Doctor Reina Michaelson (that does advocacy work on behalf of child abuse survivors) being vilified by the Ordo Templi Orientis?

    http://www.csapp.net/index.html
    *********************************
    Child rights crusader faces lawsuit”

    by Kate Uebergang (“Herald Sun,” May 31, 2005)

    Melbourne, Australia – A SECRETIVE international society linked to the occult is using Victoria’s religious tolerance laws to sue a Melbourne anti-child abuse activist.

    Ordo Templi Orientis has started a suit against psychologist Reina Michaelson over internet claims it is a pedophile cult.

    Documents submitted to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal claim Dr Michaelson wrote an internet article linking the society to pedophilia, satanic rituals, and animal and child sacrifices.

    Ordo Templi Orientis national officer David Bottrill and member Brent Gray claim Dr Michaelson has vilified and misrepresented the society, which has a base in Gardenvale.

    “What is contained on the website could incite hatred and lead to violence against members of the OTO,” they said.

    Dr Michaelson, who won a Young Australian of the Year award in 1997 for founding the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program, said she was not the author but could attest to the article’s truth.

    “The document . . . that is the subject of the complaint describes the illegal ritual abuse of a young man,” she said in a letter to the Equal Opportunity Commission, which referred the society’s complaint to the tribunal.

    Dr Michaelson, who also runs Bravehearts Victoria, said the society’s text, The Book of the Law, advocated illegal activities.

    “Verses talk of blood rituals using children, eating flesh, the sacrifice of a child, the killing and torture of others and uninhibited ‘love’ without restraint,” she said.

    “I contend that the beliefs of the OTO are not lawful religious beliefs.”

    Dr Michaelson, who is overseas, said she would contest the claim when she returned in July.

    Ordo Templi Orientis, founded in Germany in 1902, does not actively recruit or advertise.

    Members follow the religion of Thelema, as taught by occultist and mystic Aleister Crowley.

    Their Australian website says it is dedicated to securing the liberty of the individual, taught through a series of initiation rites.

    Mr Bottrill declined to comment on the case.

    Ordo Templi Orientis has also filed a religious vilification claim against NSW man Dyson Devine, alleging the article was published on his website.

    *******************************

    So here, open your eyes Captainmission if you haven’t already succumbed to the darkside:http://www.csapp.net/171104.html

    As far as I’m concerned Crowley’s bullshit subject matter(according to reports by visitors to Crowley’s “Abbey”– it stank of shit!!) which underpins OTO principles including:
    “Do what thou wilt”,
    “Sacrifice a child”,
    “Have no pity” and
    “Torture”

    are not just expressions of artistic freedom/bad taste but illegal in the sense it incites/ enshrines violence, murder, torture etc not to mention it’s just plain vile, inhumane, barbaric, evil etc etc etc…

    Here’s another beauty from Crowley’s Book of the Law:
    “We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.”

    Real ‘highbrow’ stuff!!!!!

    But wait, there’s more! Perhaps another time folks.

    For your perusal captainmissonimpossible:

    The ‘doctrine’ of Aleister Crowley from MAGICK in Theory and Practice, by The Master Therion (Aleister Crowley):

    “But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.

    The animal should therefore be killed within the Circle, or the Triangle, as the case may be, so that its energy cannot escape. An animal should be selected whose nature accords with that of the ceremony–thus, by sacrifcing a female lamb one would not obtain any appreciate quantity of the fierce energy useful to a Magician who was invoking Mars. In such acase a ram would be more suitable. And this ram should be virgin–the whole potential of its original total energy should not have been diminished in any way. For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”

    Yep, what a brilliant, benevolent chap!!!! (Could someone now pass me a sick bag please…….)

    Last bit folks….

    Captainmissionimpossible states: “it has [Crowley’s work] been mis represented and misunderstood but if any one took the trouble to read it they in context they would see it is actually quite harmless, unless you don’t like sexual yoga, tantra or the idea that you can manipulate your reality.”
    *********************************

    Yeah right…the dude was a genius, that’s why Crowley’s first wife ended up in a mental asylum, why the poet Yeat’s called him “an unspeakable degenerate”; novelist Somerset Maugham said that Crowley was one of the most evil men he had ever met; his own mother called him ‘the beast’; Crowley wrote ” I want blasphemy, murder, rape, revolution. Anything bad or good, but strong” [letter to Gerald Kelly] & “I have exposed myself to every form of disease, accident and violence. I have driven myself to delight in dirty and disgusting debauches”…

    Nah….no misunderstandings dude…Crowley was a nut, a bad poet, a bad man, a badass entrepreneur, unoriginal, a side-show alley prankster with as much magickal power as an ant’s fart..as for placing him in the same league with Freud & Jung…that’s a tad overambitious…however, I’m certainly not a fan of Freud or Jung but at least their theories don’t advocate human sacrifice!!!
    *******************************

    He wrote instructions for O.T.O. human sacrifices in his book “Magick,” published in 1930, p. 93:

    “The blood is the life. This simple statement is explained by the Hindus by saying that the blood is the principal vehicle of vital Prana. There is some ground for the belief that there is a definite substance, not isolated as yet, whose presence makes all the difference between live and dead matter.”

    “It would be unwise to condemn as irrational the practice of those savages who tear the heart and liver from an adversary, and devour them while yet warm. In any case, it was the theory of the ancient Magicians, that any living being is a storehouse of energy varying in quantity according to the size and health of the animal, and in quality according to its mental and moral character. At the death of the animal this energy is liberated suddenly.”

    “The animal should therefore be killed within the Circle, or the Triangle, as the case may be, so that its energy cannot escape.

    An animal should be selected whose nature accords with that of the ceremony, thus, by sacrificing a female lamb one would not obtain any appreciable quantity of the fierce energy useful to a Magician who was invoking Mars. In such a case a ram would be more suitable. And this ram should be virgin — the whole potential of its original total energy should not have been diminished in any way. For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”

    “For evocations it would be more convenient to place the blood of the victim in the Triangle, the idea being that the spirit might obtain from the blood this subtle but physical substance which was the quintessence of its life in such a manner as to enable it to take on a visible and tangible shape.”

    “Those magicians who object to the use of blood have endeavoured to replace it with incense. For such a purpose the incense of Abamelin may be burnt in large quantities.”

    “But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.”

    Fackin ell..

    Crowley/meat/wankology interface or what?

    I don’t eat meat because I want my food to be ethically produceed and bexause the meat INDUSTRY is a machine that is unsustainable and is helping to kill the planet and keep the poor poor and the rich rich.

    That said we are all hypocrites and I’m doing my best. Hypocrisy is a matter of degree and “Hypocrisy is the greatest luxury”

    SK, I love the fact that you say what you feel. More of that in this world and we’d be better off. It’s also pleasing to know that one of my musical heros shares a good deal of my own attitude to the world arround me. I find it hard to like music made by people whoa ren’t conscious of the sort of thinbgs you write about. There are exceptions of course. I have no idea really about Geddy Lee’s politics, but I love his music.

    Keep on.

    Peace and love,

    theglynnisjohns, if you read through SK’s entry again I think you will find he doesn’t compare heroin to meat (someone else made the comment in a previous entry).

    In fact, SK’s comment about the comparison is:

    its like comparing an orange to a mile
    they dont intersect my olde fruit
    you cannae compare em

    And I strongly suspect Steve wouldn’t punch anyone out…unless you were snarfing down a big burger and cut him off in traffic. 😉

    say, I really can’t do without chocolate for the rest of my life, and the best chocolate is about half milk- rich and creamy like toblerone! I’ve always enjoyed cheese far more than drinking milk. I’m not a crystal clear vegan, oh, no! but, this is how I like my diet- fish and milk products are what work for me.

    It really sickens me and my family that we’re one of the few independent farm property owners, and the gov’t has too much say about our products. I.E. keeping grain in silohs for years on end. In voting, I only vote on things I think I have knowledge of and that pertain to my interests. Even then, I find it hard to trust the system. However, I do believe in the power of one and that little ol me can make a difference. Hey man, you said it your self- you can do anything you desire.

    I don’t really want to get into discussing other writers ideas- Satre’s the only one I’ve liked so far. I’d rather focus on Steve’s ideas and how we react.

    I like someone’s idea about a recipe book- wouldn’t be complete without the ‘great one’s reasonings’. I’ll give up a recipe for example. I love it because it’s healthy, the flavor is very satisfying, and well- it takes about 5 or 10 minutes.

    Mango Lassi (smoothie, milkshake)
    1 part plain yogurt
    1 part juice or milk
    1 part fresh or frozen mango
    sugar or honey to taste

    blend until frothy or to the pulp you like. A hand blender in a glass in perfect, not much to clean up! Sometimes, I like to add some store bought smoothie mix, or change the fruit(s).

    If you’re thinking about edging away from a meaty diet, fresh colorful produce IS the most flavorful and healthy. OBVIOUSLY.

    Keep going Steve, it’s really healthy to see you talk about a vegan diet. Can’t say I’m altheway there, but…!!

    This is really nice, Steve, thanks.

    I have to admit I don’t understand anyone who goes on a blog like this and says, “you’re wrong for saying that” or “I wish you weren’t preachy”. I mean, you may as well go up to a tree and say, “I wish you weren’t so leafy.” But the tree’s not really there to please you, is it? And if you can’t take pleasure in it as it is, why regard it?

    The blog o’ sphere is a great place to see all kinds of tense, defensive, even desperate comments and think, wow, how much repressed tension and frustration, and loneliness, there is.

    This isn’t to slight anyone–I’ve made petulant comments elsewhere on the ‘net that I’d like to take back–but how could anyone see the gigabytes of bickering across so many blogs and not think–what if we chose to do something different with this? What is all these voices were-ked together instead of against?

    All that said, this seems to be one of the mellower corners of the o’ sphere I’ve seen. Good on everyone using these arcane verses as springboards to thoughtfulness and self-unraveling.

    that “lump of death” metaphor made it for me. at least temporarily stopped my appetite for meat. will never give up cheese. read Great Cheeses Of The Universe for an introduction.

    One thing I find hard to understand – whenever a vegetarian of whatever observance talks about Vgtrnism, someone pops up describing a juicy, well-cooked steak. Definitely juicy, well-cooked brains, I guess.

    Hey there, Aleister Crowley slasher. Dig your style! I want the truth and nothing but the truth, as somebody famous once said or maybe he wasn`t famous….! Anyway, history is full of these silly assholes posing as I-know-it-all-much-better-than-you pompous goats tricking all these naive souls into believing THEY possess some kind of knowledge only THEY have! Come to us for Salvation, boys and girls! It`ll cost you a penny or two but it`s worth it. Nirvana is just around the corner, if only you will listen to ME, buy all my books and expensive courses in self-developement. Holy Cow! A recent example of this kind of behaviour is the previously named Bhagwan Shree Rajnesh, these days renamed Osho who in the eightes moved to the US of A and established a big commune/ashram out in the middle of nowhere (state of Oregon, I think), put up a big fence around it and had armed guards protecting the Holy Premises. Inside the premises the great guru banana had a team of sexy nurses on stand-by to take care of his ailments while in the garage 10 or 15 Rolls Royces were lined up to take the great man to wherever his fancy took him. A lovely life! In the end he was thrown out of the country, relocated at Poona, his base in India and kept on the “good” work. Mostly Westerners kept coming in to achieve enlightenment, nirvana and all the rest of it at his hands. The Great Guru has passed on, but the Ashram is still there. Business as usual, folks! The show must go on!
    I got a little report from my daughter who is in India these days. She visited Poona, was let into the ashram – the big hall, and witnessed dozens of eager, devoted devotees dancing their heads off to the techno version of “Love Is In the Air”. She collapsed in laughter and went off to visit the Bodhi tree where Buddha was enlightened instead. Much better vibrations! And it didn`t cost a penny! Funny how Enlightenment suddely has a price on it`s head these days….! Flashy types pretending to know it all demanding money to give away the Great Secret! Fuck `em!
    Meanwhile, back to headquarters…..
    And mr. Kilbey (almost forgot), your music is highly appreciated in this corner of the big infinite universe! You`ve got the Touch!

    Confession does have alot of merit. I’m telling you guys things I would never share with anyone else I deal with in day to day life and my little soul feels alot better for it.
    Things come in strange ways don’t they!

    Mr. Anon
    Okay it’s impossible for me to discuss with you here and now my defence of AC. against the claims you make. Not because I can’t but this is really not the forum, plus as far as his followers go, i have no real information on what they say or do, neither do i have an interest. You are quite welcome to take this up with me further if you wish but i get the immpression you have quite fixed veiws on the subject.
    Perhaps what i can say is the mistake people often make about AC is to take a literal interpretation of his work. This is common with most spiritual, magical or transformative writings (ye old bible being a good example ) and was compounded by the fact AC wrote in a very verbose and provocative way, partly due to a reaction to the ultra religious environment he grew up in and also due to the morality of the times. But he was also aware at how vilified he had become, particularly by the media, and instead of playing it down as any sensible magician would, he played it up. The newspaper that christened him the most vile and evil man on the planet was the daily telegraph, which had its own motives for doing so, in much the same way we are told osama is evil by a ‘good’ US administration, and it’s expected to be believed as black or white, we all know the truth ain’t white or black.
    Thus references in his work to child sacrifice to the unenlightened (please don’t take literally) would appear as exactly that. However in magickal terms this means ‘ejaculation.’
    That is one example of how misunderstood AC ‘s work is. There are infinite others.
    To read ‘magick and theory’ without any idea of the context is like trying to read a book in Chinese (assuming it is not you’re native tongue).
    His wife did indeed end up in an institution, due to alcoholism which at the time, was deemed a mental illness. It would be foolish to deny that AC was not a very likable person, if you wanted to look, there were quite a few personality traits that made him disagreable, yes Yeats and various others from the establishment all disliked him, he was not a popular figure, never conforming to society’s expectations or conventions, which is possibly why Tim Leary always said he was AC’s reincarnation. Did you know that TL was also dubbed the most evil man in the world.
    As far as the court case goes i can’t respond to it as i don’t have the facts. The OTO post AC is beyond my realm of experience so i again cannot comment on it.
    I would like to point out that i am not a follower of AC but i have read most of his work in a context and stand by the points i made earlier. One does need to leave behind their moral frame works when entering AC territory, and although he appears shocking and contraversial he is only stating in terms what Tantric masters in the East have been doing for years and unless you have direct experience of the Kundalini rising then I guess it’s meaningless.
    Anyway’s I assure you that i have not gone over to the dark side, i have not gone over to the light side either, the idea that the universe is dualistic is something i never really understood as a truth. Perhaps you can explain it to me?
    For those that are intrested or perhaps desire a more balanced veiw I suggest reading, ‘Do what thou Wilt’ by Lawrence Sutin or the excellent Perdurabo by Richard Kaczynski. Phd.

    No you’re absolutely right captainmissionimpossible…silly me to question the many references to human sacrifices in Crowley’s work…the dude was just working his mojo – right? A little hot and heavy dirty talk with the goats gets em’ randy eh…YEAH baby! I mean what was I thinking…To take him literally… O what I philistine I am. What Crowley is really saying when he writes “It would be unwise to condemn as irrational the practice of those savages who tear the heart and liver from an adversary, and devour them while yet warm” is “I love my lover licking chicken liver pate from my loins”. Kinky lil’ devil ain’t he…a real lady-killer…And all those reports by survivors of Crowley and OTO’s house of horrors…shame on them, they’re all liars!…Quite right quite right…clearly Crowley is a sage…clearly he knew the secrets of the universe…his mastery of yoga clearly evident in his ‘sitting duck with a bowling bowl’ pose (as seen on
    http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/religion/aleister-crowley/)conveys his deep occidental understanding of Eastern esoteric disciplines…as for being a powerful magician he was peerless– his ability to conform reality to his will (btw is “will” magickal speak for “dick?”) was so effective…obviously that dilapidated boarding home he died in alone & friendless, as a heroin addict was his life’s grand design…sure went out in a blaze of glory….gee maybe I might get some pointers and model my life after this genius…what a humanitarian…what great prose he jotted…a role model for vegetarians and peace-lovers everywhere! He is a poster boy example of how magick can help u !!

    do it for love | 19 February 2006 at 9:15 am #

    I don’t want rain on your fervent parade vegetarian FOR THE COWS, but really, all this bashing when the very quote you used to make your tenuous link between sk’s and crowley’s behaviour actually said “don’t eat meat JUST for the cows”.

    I would like to say to you and anyone bothered with the discussion that you cannot do it just for the cows. It is by listening to our conscience, love and empathy that we should reach these conclusions and it’s that part of ourselves that is appeased when we act on such feeling. That’s a beautiful thing right! The cows benefit, we benefit, it’s mutual. However, if on the other hand we modify our behaviour to pursue politically correct or moral agendas for the purpose of playing them like cards in a game of moral one upmanship then that would probably fit your description of enlightened self-interest and whatever else you like to feel about that. In that case the cows benefit but I suspect our ego’s would only get larger, not diminish, that’s a bad thing right?

    As for Crowley, I know literally nothing about him so I guess I will have to go and find out for myself, your judgment seems somewhat clouded. The aggression in your last comment is not doing your cause one bit of good!

    I don,t eat any mammals i.e. any red meat because a) I don’t think it’s too good for you and b) more importantly mammals are not too different from us genetically and some of these poor creatures may well have some awareness of what’s happening to them in the abattoirs of this world. I do eat fish and very occasionally a bit of chicken and maybe I’m not quite so far down the road to enlightenment as some but that’s where I’m at.

    I woudn’t ever do heroin – it’s just one rubikon I have never and would never cross – again I don’t think it does you a hell of a lot of good and it’s just a little too addictive – some people can handle it – maybe? but I know I couldn’t – F**K – I can’t even give up ciggies. I do like an occasional smoke and the hallucinogenics were… well interesting!

    Okay Anon. I concede. I totally respect your right to believe whatever you want and it was foolish of me to think i may offer an alternative approach to AC and his work. For you he is evil incarnate and no one should mention his name without being tarred with the same brush. For me, i just think there’s more than one way to look at something, I don’t believe everything i read, i don’t have issue with other peoples beliefs either. I was only responding becuase there are many ways to look at AC not just yours. If people want to make their own investigations then great, so be it. If people want to react rather than respond, no problem, i never belive anything, unless i experience it and have first hand knowledge of it, maybe thats a problem for others but it is the way i am wired.
    Lets just agree to disagree without resorting to degrading our comments further and take away from what an intresting and diverse blog we both enjoy.
    I am glad that you don’t eat meat for cows. I am also glad that you enjoy sitting under trees and being a buddhist, i hope it brings you contentment and inner peace. These are very noble causes.

    legs buckle drag
    Why!????…….
    how can you smile
    how are your dreams
    chemicals surge in a life
    you never get to see
    beyond the Saw

    Steve –

    Great post. I loved it. I’m a big meat eater myself, though I’ve often felt quite bad about that fact. Nothing beats the taste of a juicy burger, and I’m simply too weak to stop eating them. This is compounded by the fact that I hate vegetables (believe it or not). I wish I could be a vegetarian, but there would be little left for me to eat. I’m not happy about that fact… Anyway, I really appreciated and enjoyed this post. Can’t wait for the next one.

    All the best.

    I appreciate your concern, but I will continue to eat meat and own slaves until somebody forcibly stops me.

    I tried the veggie thing for a while, but my runny bum was making me squat five x’s a day. That ain’t fun.

    Hello, I have a fairly new website that has been online for about 8 months. I am doing research as per a fellow website owner suggested to gather information about delivering good content to my visitors. I lokked at alot of websites that are in my area bikram yoga message board . But was told to search the blogs that I could gather more information then just people trying to sale you something. I have done the internet MLM thing and really got disgusted at the whole thing. So my wife and I thought since we love horses we should build a website around that. We have done preety good so far but I always want to improve. I didn;t realize it would be so time consuming though. But we love it and hope to improve and offer some of the best recourses and products available. Hence the search for content new products and information about what we have.

    Thank you for your BLOG.

    Regards,

    Came across this randomly – I just want to support “anonymous” –

    Crowley wrote explicitly about child sacrifice and the claim that these references are ‘metaphorical’ are troubled by (for instance) Crowley’s statement that a male child ‘of high intelligence’ was preferable for sacrifice.

    If he was referring to ritual masturbation, as his apologists would have us believe … how does semen have ‘high intelligence’?

    Crowley has one message for insiders – rape, pillage, do what you wilt – and another for outsiders – I didn’t mean that, it’s all poetry.

    I know firsthand of the ritual abuse network exposed by CSAPP and Dr Michaelson. The perpetrators do things that only Crowleyites/Thelemites do: for instance, the harvesting and consumption of menstrual blood to create “cakes of light”.

    They also celebrate Crowleymas (Crowley’s bday, Oct 12) – and I’ve got the proof – the bedsheet that they painted a curse on when they broke into my house and vandalised it on Crowleymas Eve last year.

    No Christian fundie here. I don’t have anything against Crowley that I wouldn’t have against any random person who wrote poetry about the joys of raping and killing children. But there are people that take his works very, very seriously and they are using him to justify some fucking awful shit.
