ALEISTER CROWLEY OUIJA BOARD PDF

Experimental setup with eye tracking Video caption of experiment [15] The ouija phenomenon is considered by the scientific community to be the result of the ideomotor response. Nonetheless, in both cases, the illusion that the object table or planchette is moving under its own control is often extremely powerful and sufficient to convince many people that spirits are truly at work The unconscious muscle movements responsible for the moving tables and Ouija board phenomena seen at seances are examples of a class of phenomena due to what psychologists call a dissociative state. Cautionary tales that the board opens a door to evil spirits turn the game into the subject of a supernatural dare, especially for young people. Yeats himself did not use it, but his wife did.

Suppose a strange woman walked into your drawing room and insisted on being hostess. You would be troubled by this. Yet, people sit down and offer the use of their brains and hands which are, after all, more important than offices and drawing rooms to any stray intelligence that may be wandering about. People use the Ouija Board without taking the slightest precautions. A similar process was instrumental in the Automatic Writing sessions of psycho-archaeologist Frederick Bligh Bond during his excavations at Glastonbury Abbey and claimed as the source of the insights prompting his surprisingly successful excavations.

It was inevitable that somebody would combine the two, Ouija Board and planchette, sooner or later, with seemingly spectacular results. Sinister or silly as this may seem, there are more serious precedents for the Talking Board, despite its somewhat banal and commercial origins.

The idea of devices of some kind that enable contact with spirits — whether disembodied elementals or ghosts of the dead — is, in fact, an old one. Long before the birth of Confucius, the Chinese made use of a method of planchette-style automatism called fuji to communicate with the spirits of their ancestors. Similar methods were and still are used in temples in Taiwan, where mediums known as chi shengs work either alone or in pairs, sitting before a large tray of white sand, holding in their hands a v-shaped writing tool.

After appropriate prayers, their hands begin to shake and the implement allegedly starts writing out messages in the sand. In Greece, circa B. With hands placed upon the table, it would move toward different signs and symbols, and Pythagoras or his pupil Philolaus would then interpret the message to the waiting audience as being divine revelations, supposedly from an unseen world. There are references to similar practices in Ancient Rome: the Emperor Valens had a trio of men executed who had been trying to determine the name of his successor by use of a pendulum hung over a dish with the letters of the alphabet around the rim — and even some tribes of Native American Indians used a spirit board which they called a squdilatc to help locate missing people and objects, or receive messages from the spirit-world.

What is not so well known is that in private Crowley, in fact, advocated the use of the Ouija Board, at least by trained adepts, conveying quite a different attitude to followers such as Jane Wolfe, and especially Charles Stansfeld Jones. Jane Wolfe , a Hollywood actress in the days of the silent screen, went to Cefalu from to after she and Crowley had pursued each other long distance via a two-year correspondence, from which apparently she was half expecting a spiritual master and half expecting a lover.

Thelemic scholar J. Edward Cornelius, to whose work I was introduced by the late Gerald Suster of whom more later , wrote a detailed examination of Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board in his short book of the same name, to which I am greatly indebted. She would wake from unwelcome wet dreams with the lingering feeling of penetration, usually occurring in the aftermath of her monthly period.

Vintage Ouija Boards As for C. Jones , better known by his magickal name of Frater Achad, he was an English accountant who had joined the Argenteum Astrum after first reading The Equinox in Among other things he is remembered for esoteric writings about Qabala, the Holy Grail, the Egyptian revival, and his work anticipating the controversial Future Aeon of Maat.

Most of all, it was felt that his actions in taking the Oath of the Abyss had enabled Crowley to advance to the grade of Magus. You evoke a Spirit into the Triangle. John Dee and Edward Kelley. Crowley himself had first encountered this system during his time in the Golden Dawn and had worked it extensively with his lover and disciple, the poet Victor Neuburg, scrying the Aethyrs as they traversed the desert of Algeria as recorded in The Vision and the Voice.

You see how very satisfactory it is, but I believe things improve greatly with practice. I think you should keep to one angel, and make the magical preparations more elaborate. I offer you the basis of ten percent of my net profit. You are if you accept this, responsible for the legal protection of the ideas, and the marketing of the copyright designs.

I trust that this may be satisfactory to you. I hope to let you have the material in the course of a week. You should then employ the proper magical invocation in order to get into your circle just the one spirit you want. It is comparatively easy to do this. A few simple instructions are all that is necessary, and I shall be pleased to give these, free of charge, to anyone who cares to apply.

These entities can then be tested by questioning and examination, constrained to answer via the medium of the planchette and board. This, at least, is the version that was outlined to me by Gerald Suster in London in the late s, based on his discussions with Israel Regardie and examination of the Crowley-Achad correspondence, and that I understood to be the basis of his own practise in this area. He is a writer, researcher, rare book dealer, and occasional poet, speaker and story-teller, with a background in music and performance art.

He has been exploring the Magical Universe and matters sacred and profane for the past three decades. See photo, taken on April 1, , at the launch of the book at Treadwells, London.

He was denounced in his own time for his decadent lifestyle and had few followers, but he became a cult figure after his death.

Not annoyingly so, however; it was the kind of repeat that one expects and perhaps even appreciates in a longer work, and probably would have been quite handy if I was reading it over the span of a month, instead of a couple days. And some of the repetition is clearly deliberate to drive home a point, such as "As above, so below," or A pretty quick, and fairly informative, read.
