Crowley was very fond of demons and sought them out
on many occasions. One technique Crowley used to accomplish this was to
sodomize a fellow magician, either man or woman, and then eat the semen
or feces after the act took place. Crowley believed that sodomy
attracted demons, and by eating these vile things (in a sort of mock
communion) he could bring the demons inside himself and gain their
powers and knowledge.
Thank you for not throwing up when you read that
Whatever Crowley thought he learned from these experiences is unknown,
and you’d be an idiot to want to try these techniques. While Crowley
never became the "Devil's Chief of Staff" he did, according to his
followers, become possessed by a demon on at least one occasion. During
a ritual in the desert, along with two of his disciples, he attempted
to invoke a demon called "Chronozon". It is said Crowley did all the
things you're supposed to do, drawing his cute little circle in the
sand with all the names of the God that he so despised inside to
protect him (hmmm...I see a conflict there).
But, so the story goes, the demon simply kicked sand on the circle,
walked right in, and possessed Crowley. It was said after this
incident, Crowley appeared to have aged 20 years overnight. Many of his
followers believe Crowley was possessed by this demon for the rest of
his life! I would think these are things one must consider when
deciding to follow the teachings of this man. After all, what good are
his books on "Magick", if even he wound up "demon possessed?"
hated Christianity, he embraced Gnosticism. He certainly seemed to be
Gnostic in his thinking, rejecting Christ to be a self styled
Anti-Christ. He joined the Universal Gnostic Church and quickly became
an "Arch-Bishop". No doubt Crowley at least considered Satan a "dark
side of nature" like Blavatsky and Anton LaVey.
Since Satan governed things like every sexual
depravity, drunkenness, violence, and sorcery, Crowley only saw good in
the idea of Satan. Apologists claim Crowley was merely a "literary
Satanist", like Milton or Idres Shaw. Some feel his fascination for
Satan came stemmed from his rebellion against his childhood, and this
may be partly true.
They claim his references to Satan are done with
irony, not to be taken seriously. However, when we read Crowley's works
and look at his life, it becomes painfully obvious he took more than a
passing fancy to Satanism. He wrote an "Invocation to Satan" in Liber
Samekh, and constantly referred to himself as "The Great Beast, 666",
which certainly makes it hard to say he wasn't involved or influenced
by Satanism. He kept up this identity until he died at age 75, which is
more than just rebelling against a strict upbringing.
Crowley did many strange things throughout his life
(like most psychotics), including defecating on carpets while staying
at a posh hotel, claiming his feces was sacred like the Dalia Lama's.
He traveled to America during World War I and wrote propaganda in
support of Germany. Crowley would later claim he did it to detract from
the German's, due to the propaganda's lack of quality.
He claimed many things, like being a Scottish
:Laird, even though he didn't have any Scottish blood. He even rented a
house on Loch Ness, no doubt because of the monster sightings that had
gone on for centuries. He later claimed to be an Egyptian prince after
a trip to Egypt and called himself "Prince Chioa Khan", and returned
mail if it wasn't addressed to him by his ridiculous made up title.
In 1910 he knighted himself and shaved his big head.
He would claim to be a medical doctor with a Doctorate from the
University of London which was news to the University when followers
inquired in the 1980's. He never even attended one class there! He once
opened a "magickal restaurant" featuring pills made with his own semen
as an ingredient (yuck!).
In an attempt to imitate the powers of Christ, he
tried to reanimate a skeleton by reciting spells and placing "blood
small birds and the like" on it every day, which of coursed failed
since he had no powers (so why buy his books?). This "magick"
experiment only resulted in a horrible sight and an unimaginable
stench. from this lesson, we can qucikly learn 1) Crowley's
"Magick" doesn't actually work, and 2) He was a lunatic.
If you had a relative like Crowley, you would
have him committed! The reason Crowley wasn’t was because of his wealth
and social standing. When reading passages like the above, his modern
day followers gloss over them, r dismiss it as part of his offbeat
sense of humor.
He married a woman named Rose Kelly in 1903. Crowley
called her "The Whore of Babylon" to compliment his self-proclaimed
Anti-Christ title. The poor woman was mentally unstable (what other
kind of woman would hook up with Crowley?), and eventually went
completely insane. She spent the remainder of her life in an insane
This was said to be a pattern throughout
Crowley's career. Followers, servants, and lovers of both sexes went
insane, perhaps because they were mentally unstable to begin with, or
perhaps driven insane deliberately by Crowley somehow, or perhaps both
factors. Several disciples were said to have committed suicide after
Crowley had no further use for them.
Most people would expect a religious figure
does good things for people. But what about a religious figure that
drives people insane and even to suicide?
