A: A:
Publication in Class B.
Imprimatur:
N. Fra A: A:



1. This book is the Gate of the Secret of the Universe.

2. Let the Exempt Adept procure the Prolegomena of Kant,and study it,
paying special attention to the Antinomies.

3. Also Humes doctrine of Causality in his "Enquiry."

4. Also Herbert Spencers discussion of the three theoriesof the Universe
in his "First Principles," Part I.

5. Also Huxleys Essays on Hume and Berkeley.

6. Also Crowleys Essays: Berashith, Time, The Soldierand the Hunchback,
et cetera.

7. Also the "Logik" of Hegel.

8. Also the "Questions of King Milinda" and the BuddhistSuttas which
bear on Metaphysic.

9. Let him also be accomplished in Logic. (Formal Logic,Keynes.)
Further let him study any classical works to which hisattention may be
sufficiently directed in the course of his reading.

10. Now let him consider special problems, such as theOrigin of the World,
the Origin of Evil, Infinity, the Absolute, the Ego andthe non-Ego, Freewill
and Destiny, and such others as may attract him.

11. Let him subtly and exactly demonstrate the fallaciesof every known
solution, and let him seek a true solution by his rightIngenium.

12. In all this let him be guided only by clear reason,and let him
forcibly suppress all other qualities such as Intuition,Aspiration, Emotion,
and the like.

13. During these practices all forms of Magick Art andMeditation are
forbidden to him. It is forbidden to hi to seek any refugefrom his
intellect.

14. Let then his reason hurl itself again and again againstthe blank wall
of mystery which will confront him.

15. Thus also following is it said,and we deny it not.

At last automatically his reason will take up the practice,su sponte,
and he shall have no rest therefrom.

16. Then will all phenomena which present themselves tohim appear
meaningless and disconnected, and his own Ego will breakup into a series of
impressions having no relation one with the other, orwith any other thing.

17. Let this state then become so acute that it is intruth Insanity, and
let this continue until exhaustion.

18. According to a certain deeper tendency of he individualwill be the
duration of this state.

19. It may end in real insanity, which concludes the activitiesof the
Adept during this present life, or by his rebirth intohis own body and mind
with the simplicity of a little child.

20. And then shall he find all his faculties unimpaired,yet cleansed in a
manner ineffable.

21. And he shall recall the simplicity of the Task ofthe Adeptus Minor,
and apply himself thereto with fresh energy in a moredirect manner.

22. And in his great weakness it may be that for awhilethe new Will and
Aspiration are not puissant, yet being undisturbed bythose dead weeds of
doubt and reason which he hath uprooted, they grow imperceptiblyand easily
like a flower.

23. And with the reappearance of the Holy Guardian Angelhe may be granted
the highest attainments, and be truly fitted for thefull experience of the
destruction of the Universe. And by the Universe We meannot that petty
Universe which the mind of man can conceive, but thatwhich is revealed to his
soul in the Samadhi of Atmadarshana.

24. Thence may he enter into a real communion with thosethat are beyond,
and he shall be competent to receive communication andinstruction from
Ourselves directly.

25. Thus shall We prepare him for the confrontation ofChoronzon and the
Ordeal of the Abyss, when we have received him into theCity of the Pyramids.

26. So, being of Us, let the Master of the Temple accomplishthat Work
which is appointed.

(In Liber CDXVIII. is an adequate account of this Ordealand Reception.
See also Liber CLVI. for the preparation.)

27. Also concerning the Reward thereof, of his enteringinto the Palace of
the Kings Daughter, and of that which shall thereafterbefall, let it be
understood of the Master of the Temple. Hath he not attainedto
Understanding? Yea, verily, hath he not attained to Understanding?
