News Briefs from the Front

Motta case reaches finish after 7 years in litigation.

    On January 11th 1988 e.v., the Clerk of the United States Supreme Court reported the following order of the Supreme Court in Motta/SOTO's appeal: "The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied." This was the last level available to Motta and S.O.T.O. for appealing the 9th Circuit decision of 1985 e.v. recognizing our O.T.O. as the O.T.O. of Aleister Crowley. In the Idiom, the Fat Lady sang; and the Opera is over!

Ultimate Evil case filed and service begun

    On the same day we received notice of the denial of certiorari to SOTO, we incidentally began service of suit in the "Ultimate Evil" case. There may be some amendments to the complaint, and a considerable time will probably pass before the case comes to trial or other conclusion. Having successfully proven our identity, we must now continue to dispel gross misrepresentations and falsehoods about O.T.O. Mauri Terry's book, "The Ultimate Evil", makes reckless and grotesquely false allegations against O.T.O. of an extremely harmful nature. Despite the expense, we must proceed to protect our good name. Donations are very much needed for the legal fund.

February '88 e.v. at Thelema Lodge

    Gnostic Masses are held every Sunday at 8 pm. Our Lodgemistress teaches Mass classes by request Sunday afternoons.
    Full Moon is February 2nd, ritual starts at 9:30 pm. New Moon ritual after Dave's Enochian class on the 16th.

from the Grady Project:

The Parish Parson

I have found a place to dwell
A quiet, peaceful part of Hell
Far from the heavy trafficked Styx.
My house is built of lava bricks
And in my nurtured garden grow
The black and lustrous Leper rose.
         On Furnace Road
         Lies my abode
Close by the Temple of the Toad.

And where I live, tho not in state
My life is dignified, sedate.
Within our peaceful neighborhood
Live other martyrs of the Rood
Who served their Master well - and now
May share the promise of their vow,
         To live their days
         Beneath the gaze
Of Him whose eyes with evil blaze.

And of my cherished work in Hell
I have but only this to tell;
That once a week I don my gown
And catch the midnight train to town
To oversee my Sabbat's mirth
And represent our Hell on Earth.
         A parish priest
         For those who feast
And pledge their souls unto the Beast.

Q. What is that thing with bird and cup that appears on O.T.O. letterhead? -- from WV

    This is the principal O.T.O. symbol, called the Lamen of O.T.O. It can be described as: a vesica containing an eye within a triangle with glory of 24 rays, descending dove below, at bottom a chalice with heartshaped host, cross of {Malta} and flame. The word "lamen" signifies a unique talisman or device which identifies the nature of a particular person or entity. A lamen is used by the person or entity so identified, and is therefore not the same as a segil, which may merely represent a spirit in some more limited sense. The O.T.O. Lamen is the legal "Trademark" of Ordo Templi Orientis, and it is used to identify O.T.O. publications and products. This particular device appears to predate Crowley's involvement in O.T.O. {in some elements.} In early versions, it was not shaped like a vesica pisces, but had the distinctly "parachute" shape of a Norman shield with rounded top and pointed bottom. The vesica shape was in general use by 1919 e.v. Individual symbols within the Lamen have significance in Masonic, Christian and Crusader lore. The Eye in the Triangle with rayed Glory is a Masonic symbol of the Eternal Light of Wisdom, a Christian symbol of the Trinity, a veiled symbol of the Tree of Life and many other things. The Dove is a Masonic symbol of the Messenger of Noah, a Christian symbol of the Holy Spirit, a symbol of purity and a symbol of the Soul. The Cup in Masonry signifies the trials of life, and is called "Bitterness". One of the nobler aims of Masonic Craft Initiation is to raise the strength to drink of this Cup. Christianity sees the Holy Grail in this Cup. Within and above the Cup are elements hearkening to Pentecostal descent of Spirit in a tongue of fire, sacrifice and the Crusading Order of Knights Templar. More Thelemic interpretations are preferred and available.
    The Eye in the Triangle is the Egyptian eye of Horus, divine presence in the Aeon of Horus. This Egyptian motif also reminds us of our traditional descent from the Egyptian masonry of Cagliostro and the Illuminati of Weishaupt. From this eye emanates a "Glory" of 24 lines, taken either as 24 presences or 12 bands. 24 stands for the 24 Righteous ones, Patriarchs of the Old Testament and the secret and invisible beings who maintain the world and human society (In Hassidic tradition, there are 36 of these, possibly reflecting the 36 decans). 24 also represents the hours of the day and night that emanate from the Divine Sun. In standard versions of the Lamen, eight of these rays pass through the wings of the Dove to symbolize the eight invisible presences that witness our initiations. As 12 bands, this Glory represents the regimen of 12, Zodiacal signs chiefly.
    The Descending Dove represents the spiritual identity of the O.T.O. and the blessing of the God of the Aeon. By its descent it signifies incarnation of the God into this time and place, attracted by the content of the Chalice.
    The Chalice contains the lives of individual members of the O.T.O. and represents dedication to Thelema. The Heart-shaped Host symbolizes love of Thelema and the sacrifice of the "Bloodless Knights of Babalon". The Cross of (Malta) on that host recalls the Crusader Order of Knights Templar from which we derive the name of O.T.O. A Flame at the top of the Chalice is the purified fire of Will which attracts congress with the Dove. About the perfected central host others form a rose of desire and striving.
    Even the shape of the Lamen has a significance for O.T.O. A vesica is an intimate symbol of the Goddess. This is frequently taken to represent the vulva, and the symbols on the Lamen can be interpreted anatomically. O.T.O. members are collectively known as "Brothers", even though we are men and women in equality. The Order itself is our Lady. This distinction is reversed in A A, where the symbol is the Star of Babalon, and the members are collectively known as "Sisters" of the Star. Incidentally, a vesica is not just a spindle shape but a precise geometrical figure defined as the intersection of two equal circles through their centers. Achad elaborates on the vesica as a geometrical criterion for drawing the Qabalistic Tree of Life in his book, The Anatomy of the Body of God. The word "vesica" literally signifies "bladder", as this is the general shape of a fish bladder --- no offense intended to Our Lady's hygiene.
    Crowley experimented with colors and a modification of the design of the O.T.O. Lamen along Qabalistic lines. This can be seen on the cover of our new Equinox III, 10 (inside the cover in some editions). The color version was never used as official O.T.O. letterhead, even by Crowley; but it remains an interesting major variation from the standard design. Those who missed getting a copy of Equinox III,10 in the budget edition may be interested to learn that the paperback is due out again soon.
    Kenneth Grant also discusses the O.T.O. Lamen in his Night Side of Eden, page 167. As do many of Grant's remarks on O.T.O. and Crowley, this particular view represents an inversion of actual O.T.O. usage and symbolism. Grant, like Waite, can be read to advantage if one remembers the "Law of the Goat": "When the idea is stressed, the opposite is probably true." Grant's views are based on his own interests and do not reflect those of O.T.O. This is particularly the case where the words "Set", "Typhon", "Satan", "Qlipoth", "Crowley", "O.T.O.", "O.H.O.", "Extra-terrestrial", and synonyms are used. Enjoy his work, but 'taint Crowley and 'taint us.

Elias Ashmole

Special Supplement: Serialized Standard Edition of the
Magical Manuscripts of John Dee, by Brother David


    In this issue of the
Thelema Lodge Calendar we begin a transcription of John Dee's spiritual diaries. Our serialization begins with Elias Ashmole's preface to Doctor Dee's Five Books of Mystery (Doctoris Dee Mysteriorum Libri Quinti), comparing the texts of Slane Manuscripts 3188 and 3677. Though this particular passage is already avaiable in several modern editions, we include it here as a general introduction, and in order to preserve the continuity of our project.
    In preparing this text we have expanded most abbreviations, noting the first instance of each. Spelling, capitalization, and punctuation have been left intact. References to manuscripts in the Sloane collection are designated "SL," with all textual variations noted. Ashmole's annotation is given in the left hand column, with our commentary upon his notes following. Our own editorial annotation is placed opposite, on the right hand, and standard abbreviation has been used. Textual variations are noted all together, following the text.
    It is our intention over the course of time to provide a completely standardized edition of the magical manuscripts of John De, that serious practitioners and interested students of Enochian Magick may have a reliable guide in their work.

49.(at the Corner house) they saw a Chest of Cedar
50.wood about a yard and an halfe long, whose Lock
51.and Hinges, being of extraordinary neate worke,
52.invited them to buy it. The Master of the shop
53.told them it had been parcell of the Goods of one
54.Mr: John Woodall Chirurgeon14 (father to Mr:14.i.e. surgeon
55.Thomas Woodall late Serjant Chirurgeon to his now
56.Majestie King Charles the Second (my intimate
57.friend) and tis very probable he bought it after
58.Doctor Dee's death, when his goods were exposed Sales.
60.    Twenty yeares after this (and about 4 yeares
61.before the fatall Fire of London) she and her
62.good husband occasionally removing this Chest out
63.of its usuall place, thought they heard some
64.loose thing ratle in it, toward the right hand
65.end, under the Box or Till thereof, and by
66.shaking it, were fully satisfied it was so:
67.Hereupon her Husband thrust a peece of Iron into
68.a small Crevice at the bottome of the Chest, and
69.thereupon appeared a private drawer, which being
70.drawne out, therein were found divers Bookes in
71.Manuscrpt, and Papers, together with a litle
72.Box, and therein a Chaplet of Olive Beades, and a
73.Cross of the same wood, hanging at the end of
75.    They made no great matter of these Bookes,
76.etc. because they understood them not; which
77.occasioned their Servant Maide to wast about one
78.halfe of them under Pyes, and other like uses,
79.which when discovered, they kept the rest more
81.    About two yeares after the discovery of these
82.Bookes, Mr. Jones died; and when the fire of
83.London hapned, thought the Chest perished in the
84.Flames, because not easily to be removed, yet the
85.Bookes were taken out and carried with the rest
86.of Mrs: Jones her goods into Moorefields, and
87.being brought safely back, she took care to
88.preserve them; and after marrying with the
89.aforesaid Mr: Wale, he came to the knowledge of
90.them, and there upon, with her concent, sent them me, as I have before set downe.
