    Briefly no. Schizophrenia and ugliness are inheritable, much like the bad reputation.

    Yes I would go with Pushkin on this, Crowley would be not the grandfather I would aspire to have though no doubt it would be interesting & unusual yet informative in the area of his expertise being esoteric knowledge applied in the occult arts. But it would definitely not be "cool" though definitely different.

Having a priest for a father pretty much makes one a member of the gentry or ascendancy.

    Byzantine Catholic priests are allowed to marry. Only Bishops or highers are required to remain celibate, just like in the Orthodox churches.

    Not true. "Do what thou wilt" only applies once you find your will. It does not mean "do whatever the hell you want". And you are forgetting the other part: "Love is the law, love under will".

    You sure can. But do you find your will through love, or do you love according to your will?

    Post Re: Aleister Crowley

    I admire Aleister Crowley very much. I do not believe his use of drugs should be held against him because drugs when used in moderation, can make one aware of mind expansion and perception beyond the conscious mind. As for the different Aeons, I have a bit to say about them, it doesn't sum it all up entirely though. In Jungian influenced psychology, it is thought that at first, in "Isian" aeons, man's mind was primitive, ruled by the unconscious or the domain of the Mother. In these societies it was common that men competed with one another more than they bonded.

    When more "Osirian" societies came about, men started to have men's mysteries with fire rituals and things exclusive to manhood. Men united to transcend the seductive power of the Mother and unite with their higher "Solar" self. This theme can be seen when Christ transcends "Hell" (The womb) and unites with his heavenly father. Also note the burning of the cross in the Klan, or Hitler's fire ritual processions. (associations with fire.)

    Also in Jungian influenced psychology there are the concepts of "Slaying of the mother" and "Slaying of the father". The idea of "Slaying of the mother" is that a man, in order to be free must break the bonds of the mother's influence. Think of the witch in the ginger bread house who uses the candy to lure the unsuspecting boy, or who uses the candy to have him live in a state of abundance, but still dependence. The feminine is symbolized by the dragon and dragon slaying myths reenact the tale of the Man overcoming "The Dragon".

    The "Slaying of the Father" concept is this, a man utilizes the influence of elder men in his life to help defeat the mother's influence, and instill in the man a sense of risk taking and autonomy. The catch is this, in this process of becoming independent, a man must also become free of his father's rules, regulations and all things the father has set up in order to hinder the son's freedom. One could argue that when a former way of life is overthrown this is "Slaying of the Father" in grand scale. The younger generation rises to overthrow the oppressive regime instated years ago by the Elder generations.

    So when Crowley mentions "The crowned and conquering Child" and the Aeon of Horus, I cannot help but see it as a declaration of the child's independence in the "Slaying" of the two older Aeons.

    In Egyptian myth, while Horus was fighting Set (representing the male "knight" that enforces the ways of the "Mother") there is a part where Isis turns into a scorpion and bites Horus' leg. Isis later assists Horus in defeating Set, and Horus in anger at his mother's help, he smites her.

    Just my thoughts on Crowley and the Aeons.
