COSMIC TRIGGER Volume 1: The Final Secret of the Illuminati

By Robert Anton Wilson

*From the Preface: "Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change... this is called 'initiation' or 'vision quest' in many traditional societies... and a dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody... the main thing I learned is that 'reality' is always plural and mutable." "......I therefore want to make it even clearer than ever before that; I DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING."

Some topic examples:
The Sirius Connection, Sufis, Babylon, Zen Tradition, JFK, Millbrook, Illuminati, Aleister Crowley, Queen of Space, Karma, Witchcraft, Tesla. Mothman Prophecy, Weird Critters, Discordian Huxley, Egyptian Gods, The Holy Guardian Angel etc... etc...

"Wilson managed to reverse every mental polarity in me, as if I had been pulled through infinity. I was astonished and delighted." --- Philip K. Dick

THE EYE IN THE TRIANGLE: An Interpretation of Aleister Crowley - by Israel Regardie


THE EYE IN THE TRIANGLE: An Interpretation of Aleister Crowley - by Israel Regardie

Introduction by Robert Anton Wilson -- Preface by Christopher S. Hyatt Ph.D.

Aleister Crowley, the greatest Magus of the twentieth century, redefined the very basis of the Western Tradition. His vast influence extends throughout modern occultism. He is the father of the modern art of ceremonial magick and western tantra. In 1928 at the age of 53, Crowley was living in Paris when Israel Regardie, a 21 year old disciple, nervously presented himself to be Crowley's personal secretary. Thus began the most significant relationship of Regardie's life. Although they were later to have a bitter parting of company - this experience caused Regardie to devote the next five decades to spreading Crowley's message and tending the flame of his memory - at a time when that was an unpopular, unrewarding and lonely task.

This book provides an accurate, humorous and brilliantly insightful look into the man whom many still regard as the 'Wickedest Man in the World' - get ready to enter the magickal universe of Aleister Crowley as seen through the eyes of Israel Regardie, who was his personal secretary for years. Regardie withstood ridicule and hatred in his continued defense of Crowley - well before most proponents of Crowley's teachings were even born.

THE REVIVAL OF MAGICK: And Other Essays - by Aleister Crowley - Oriflamme Series #2



THE REVIVAL OF MAGICK: And Other Essays - by Aleister Crowley

Oriflamme Series - Book #2

This collection is concerned with Aleister Crowley the essayist. This literary form gave full range to his wit, humor, knowledge and command of the English language. Most of his essays are as fresh today as they were when first written - and some of his best are collected here, forming a curiously charming sampling of Crowley's opinions and interests - His subjects are wide ranging, including mysticism, magick, travel, humor, social satire, drugs, psychoanalysis, religious fundamentalism, 'pop' occultism, art, divination, mythology and drama.

Crowley preaches his new Law of Thelema in several passionate essays - explaining the religious philosophy of the 'New Law' given to him by superior beings in Cairo 1904 which became the infamous 'Book of the Law' - Sometimes writing as Crowley the man, at other times as the Master Therion, Magus of the New Age of Horus - Crowley makes doctrinal connections not made elsewhere, many of great relevance to the theology and social philosophy of Thelema.

The intent of this collection is to introduce Aleister Crowley's writings to a wider audience - his essays have been annotated, with notes on sources, a bibliography of works cited, and an index.

The Oriflamme is a series of writings on magick, mysticism and the history of ideas. This is the second book in the series and was produced jointly by the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) and New Falcon Publications.

New Falcon Publications/O.T.O. - 1998 Edition - 240 Page Paperback - Not Illustrated - Esoteric/ Philosophy/ Metaphysics/ Occult -- Somewhat Scarce Edition -- PRICE: $30.00
