My contribution to this discussion:

Yes, the Golden Dawn was historically exclusive and elitist. The original group was so exclusive and elitist that their teachings were almost lost when the group broke apart. Who would have carried this spiritual knowledge to the next generation if Crowley and Regardie had not gone ahead and just published the Golden Dawn material for everyone to read? Had it not been for that, chances are that few people reading or posting on this website would ever have come into contact with this material.

Remember, even Dion Fortune was rejected from one of the post-G.D. groups for not having the right symbols in her aura. ("A perfectly unanswerable charge.") And Fortune had her own issues with mental illness. Would you have kept Dion Fortune out of your group too?

A lot has changed in the last century or so, and going crazy just ain't what it used to be. In fact, it's much more common, and it is foolish to pretend to understand all of the reasons for this societal shift. The very drugs demonized in these posts are the ones most frequently prescribed by doctors today.

Philip K. Dick said that sometimes going insane is the only sane response to an insane society. He was a visionary, too, but I doubt he would have been able to live up to these standards, either. Another potential G.D. reject!

Though Crowley was barely out of school when he joined the Golden Dawn, he immediately observed that "the members of the Order were as vulgar and commonplace as any other set of average people." Elitism be damned. We all start out as lead.

The rituals described also share another trait: they all seem to go horrendously wrong. Grant calls this a "tangential tantrum," but I can think a stronger words to describe one's students dying or going insane. Alleged instances include a trapeze artist falling off a giant Tree of Life framework into an open well, aquarium monsters emerge to have sex with a Priestess, and an Indian temple baboon dissapears into a column of purple smoke never to be seen again. To be sure, some people derived benefits from these rites: one woman supposedly became a great dancer after she sucked off a giant Mayan squid-bat in an abandoned chapel in Wales (pp. 243-6)!

"[name redacted] - will you please stop replying to yourself? It's dishonest. We all know that both you [and name redacted] are the same poster. I've told you once before (when you were pretending to be your wife, and you deceased), that your writing style is rather too distinctive to get away with this sort of deception, and it is no doubt feeding your continuing delusions of grandeur also.

Are you an A.:A.: master this week, or a dragon lord fighting level 3 demons and destroying covens? Whatever the latest salve to your ego is, it's nothing to do with Sunshine, and you're hardly qualified to tell other magickians about the adorations."

DISCLOSURE

What you must not do is react.

Basically there will not be disclosure.
Surely you've heard all the theories about TPTB fooling us into leaving the planet 
and then disposing of us.

I doubt that I can contact the ETs directly.
The best minds believe they don't exist.

Original poem, in the "cut-up" style of the Beats. 2009.

SETI

I've heard before that SETI isn't a reputable organization. 
They are monsters.
They are ugly. 
Come on, infinite probabilities people! 
This earth alone demonstrates an array of lifeforms,  
That all seem alien to one another.

Original poem, written in the "cut-up" style of the Beats. 2009.
