On Aleister Crowley and the Idea of Magick

The plan was to discuss the introduction to Aleister Crowley's classic work, Magick in Theory and Practice (1924), a powerful text on the nature and purpose of magical practice. JF and Phil stick to the plan for the first part of the show, and then veer off into a dialogue on the basic idea of magic. Along the way, they share some of the intriguing results of their own occult experiments.

Even he had some shining moments of deep thought. But yeah, I'm not the only one who's thought that.

Aren't they all. Look at all the self-help books floating around. Same stuff, recycled. Magick is the art and science of creating change in accordance with will. This doesn't mean it'll give everything to you without effort. I think a lot of people don't get that.

It might work but that doesn't mean that he's beliefs of why it worked are correct.

I like what the one guy says.

He's like Part 1 is I am very skeptical of magick, and Part 2 is magick is real.

I think we all hold our own views as to how it works. I hold firmly to the psychological model of magick.

My basic understand is he was a bit of a spoiled trust funder who was overly hedonistic.

A favorite podcast of mine did a bio on him recently. I just didn't know the full depths of his hedonism lol. If only he used his time and funds to pursue and expand upon other real fields.

 

Instead of get mad when people didn't play wizards the way he wanted too. Or, when they questioned him on how Sodomy in the desert would help one reach enlightenment lol

Probably had something to do with religion being forced upon him, too.
