Quote:
It would be vain to attempt to deliver a synopsis of Crowley's philosophy, save that its
'leitmotif' is the Rabelaisian.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

The actual meaning of this phrase has taken volumes to explain, but roughly it concerns
the uniting of the conscious Self, a process of individuation which culminates in a rite
called "Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel"; the Angel signifying
the pure, evolved Self.

Yet, there are many terrors on the Way to the Self, and an Abyss to cross before victory
can be declared. Demons, vampires, psychic leeches, ghastly forms accost the aspiring
magician from every angle, from every quarter around the circumference of the magick
circle, and they must be destroyed lest they devour the magician himself. When Crowley
professed to have passed the obstacles, and crossed the Abyss of Knowledge, and found
his true Self, he found it was identical with the Beast of the Book of Revelation, 666,
whom Christianity considers to represent the Devil. Indeed, Crowley had nothing but
admiration for the Shaitan (Satan) of the so-called "devil-worshipping" cult of the
Yezidis of Mesopotamia, knowledge of which led him to declare the lines that open this
Introduction. For he saw that the Yezidis possess a Great Secret and a Great Tradition
that extends far back into time, beyond the origin of the Sun cults of Osiris, Mithra and
Christ; even before the formation of the Judaic religion, and the Hebrew tongue. Crowley
harkened back to a time before the Moon was worshipped, to the "Shadow Out of Time";
and in this, whether he realised it as such or not, he had heard the "Call of Cthulhu".

Note: that Lovecraft may have heard of Crowley is hinted at darkly in his short story
"The Thing On The Doorstep" in which he refers to a cult leader from England who had
established a covenstead of sorts in New York. In that story, published in Weird Tales in
1936, the cult leader is closely identified with chthonic forces, is described as
"notorious", and linked to the strange fate that befell the protagonist, Edward Derby.)

Quote:
Drawing on decades of experience, author and historian Peter Levenda turns to the novel as the best and perhaps only way to tell a story that has to be told - that hidden within the tales of America's most iconic writer of gothic horror, H.P. Lovecraft, runs a vein of actual terror.

Gregory Angell, the present-day descendant of George Angell in Lovecraft's "Call of Cthulhu," is summoned by a nameless covert agency of the US government to retrieve a sacred book from the grasp of an Islamist terror network operating out of northern Iraq, in the land of the Yezidi. Practitioners of a monotheistic religion with mystical traditions, the Yezidi are all that's left of an ancient sect that possessed the key to the origins of the human race and was in conflict with another, more ancient civilization from beyond the stars.

Hailed by author Christopher Farnsworth (Blood Oath) as a "more intelligent DaVinci Code" and by Whitley Strieber (The Key) as "a riveting work of fiction," this book will thrill Lovecraft aficionados, readers of reality-based thrillers, and conspiracy theorists alike.

Levenda quotes from: https://conspiracyreview.net/2015/04/09 ... n-history/

Quote:
Soren Kierkegaard I think has this line: “the Dreadful has already happened.” It’s not something that we have to anticipate, it’s something that’s already transpired. I think to Lovecraft, in some of his stories anyways, he feels that this Dreadful thing has already happened, this gate has already been opened, and this thing has already slithered through.

Oddly enough, it’s the occultists that protect us from this. It’s the people dabbling in the occult that are able to close the gate and get rid of the thing

Apply psychological lens, and analyze.

Quote:
The understanding that I’ve come to is that there is a left side to the universe, to understanding reality. We sometimes have to suspend disbelief, we have to suspend the rational framework to get deeper into what’s happening to us.

MM*> How rich is that, coming from Levenda? >O*
