Об этой электронной книге

The Book of Lies is a complex work of occultism. Deciphering its many layers of hidden meaning requires a little patience and more than a beginner's knowledge of Thelema. For those interested in passing beyond the initiate stage, the reward offered by a deeper understanding of this challenging text is well worth the effort.

    This Qabalistic book has been described as a "little master work", and in occult literature, I would say that is accurate. The title, "Book of Lies", refers to the idea that nothing True can be spoken or written, but only experienced. Nevertheless, human communication, vital to aiding our Understanding, must be used to give a hint or suggestion of Truth. And so Crowley writes 91 brief chapters of what he calls "relatively true" falsifications; in other words, Universally Untrue things that nevertheless have truth for humans in their microcosmic lives.Sometimes amusing, sometimes disturbing, sometimes cryptic (even to Crowley who notes "the final Mystery is always insoluble"), the verses are accompanied by Crowley's commentaries, providing a concise and artful introduction to and clarification of his views on life and Qabalah.

    Probably the most approachable of Crowley's magickal writings. Much less intimidating then Liber AL and other highly technical works by Crowley. An amusing tome of Qabalistic 'verse' (in the loosest sense, as a chapter can be a single word or punctuation), that can't help but to remind one of the Tao Te Ching. However, Lao Tzu was never this funny or cryptic. An enjoyable work for the layman as well as the student, and I err more towards the former.

    I love this book. Meant to be taken in small doses, it's the best and worst of Uncle Al, with jokes, puns and outright snarkiness on so many levels. Many of it is inside jokes, so if you don't have a background in Western Hermetic Qabalah and/or general Crowley, it wont be as much fun. I'd always recommend his Autohagiography first

The Wanderings or Falsifications of the One Thought of Frater Perdurabo* which Thought is Itself Untrue

Liber CCCXXXIII

*Frater Perdurabo, (literally, ‘Brother Who Endures,’ was the name taken by Crowley during a Golden Dawn ceremony in 1898. (See image following page). The Golden Dawn of Crowley’s era counted many luminaries amongst its occultist members, including literary figures like Algernon Blackwood (1869–1951), Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) and W. B. Yeats (1865–1939).

**The Book of Lies was first published by Weiland and Company, London, 1913.

ABRAHADABRA.**

These ten words are four, the Name of the One.

*Aiwass claimed to be a messenger of the falcon-headed Egyptian god Hoor or Horus (also, Heru-ra-ha and Hoor-Paar-Kraat).

**Crowley’s variation on abracadabra takes his ‘magick’ away from the more prosaic magic, with all its connotations of trickery and illusion. The ‘H’ in place of the ‘C’ signifies birth and life. Crowley coined the neologism over a decade earlier, in 1901, using kabbala methods.
