In answer to Crowley and his mockery of one.....

Having just posted the Surah from the Quran that deals with the concept of unity in the religion of submission to the source of peace, I feel it necessary to point out the subtleties missed by none Arab speakers, which includes myself. In Crowley's book of the law it is said that;

"The Perfect and the Perfect are one Perfect and not two; nay, are none! Nothing is a secret key of this law. Sixty-one the Jews call it; I call it eight, eighty, four hundred & eighteen. But they have the half; unite by thine art so that all disappear. My prophet is a fool with his one, one, one; are not they the Ox and none by the Book?" Liber al vel Legis 1:45-48

Now in truth the One is not one as we define it as say we may quantify one cup as opposed to two, in Arabic Wahid, rather Al - Wahid, having a meaning of The Unique, and in Al-Ikhlas he 'Allah the one'. By the quabbalah, there are three veils that surround our universe. First one discovers a nothing, which becomes a limitless, and then an illuminating light which blinds, surely the light of the God is brighter than any physical light we have seen, may we bathe in the light of The God, The Absolute, and Infinite, and may it cleanse the shadows upon our souls. When one considers the mundane light of the sun at the centre of our system, can we even seperate that into parts, can we divide it into three for instance? If we cannot then who dares to assign division or partners with The God in his realm?
