The Abyss of Hallucinations has Law and Reason; but in Truth there is no bond between the Toys of the Gods.
This Reason and Law is the Bond of the Great Lie.
Truth! Truth! Truth! crieth the Lord of the Abyss of Hallucinations.
There is no Silence in that Abyss: for all that men call Silence is Its Speech.
This Abyss is also called ‘Hell’, and ‘The Many’. Its name is ‘Consciousness’, and ‘The Universe’, among men.
But THAT which neither is silent, nor speaks, rejoices therein.
This, as mentioned before a long time ago when I posted #2 whenever that was, was my degree show projekt. I rather wondered at the time if it was impolitic to use a Crowley poem, but . . . I quite like Crowley’s mystical poems, even if I’ve always suspected they were not to be taken entirely seriously. I may of course be wrong (BUT IT WOULD BE MOST UNPRECEDENTED); I haven’t studied them.
(Well, really I wondered if it was impolitic to incorporate Crowley and to mention in my CV that I helped to start up an LGBT society at the uni. I hoped that using Crowley would prove me well-read and that starting up the LGBT society would prove me proactive, but couldn’t help fearing that Crowley + LGBT would prove me a devil-worshipping gaymosexual. As only an excerpt of my statement re. ideas/themes/inspirations was displayed at the exhibition, I don’t think anyone got to read about how well-read/proactive I was and so couldn’t make any assumptions about the state of my immortal soul. Foiled them again!)
In any case, it is about time I posted these images in their wholeness.
