This is certainly one of the finest poems ever written by Crowley, despite his bad image in media or in pop culture, he remains a major figure of the early 20th century’s Occult revival in Europe. He was quite an oppressed youth, because of his religious upbringing in the hostile and devoid of all freedom and free will religious environment in rural England. He traveled extensively, had a passion for mountain climbing, poetry, art and a good taste for life (who doesn’t have a good taste for life?), and in the end became one of the leading scholars of MAGICK and the OCCULT.
The Scrying Apes of Ignorance
GODT NYTT ÅR!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Well, I am appearing here before you with a particular announcement, and also to show you a short segment from my upcoming book. Yes, I am in the process of writing my first book and it’s in the very early stages of development. I have no working title yet or a publisher, (I’ll most likely publish with CreateSpace anyways), but further news and announcements can be found here on my blog, or on my YouTube channel. Here’s a segment from the 1st chapter in the book, concerning the current, and also not so current situation here in my country. I also speak about the intentional conditioning and social engineering of the people here, and in the rest of the world in general. Also about the educational system and the mindless drones of that modern society produces.
Regardless of whether you are aware of this fact or not, whether you care or not—it does not change the fact that the Battle of Armageddon has already begun and you as an individual, and all of us in society are caught up in the middle of the greatest and most destructive conflict the human race has ever experienced. However, this version of the Battle of Armageddon is not a tangible battle of human slaughter and carnage taking place across the landscape of some rather uninspiring real estate in the Middle East—as was predicted in the Book of Revelations. Rather, this very real and destructive Battle of Armageddon is currently taking place right now in the domain of human consciousness—it is taking place within your own mind.
he battle of Magh Rath, fought A.D. 637, is one of the most important recorded in the Irish annals; it is mentioned by Adamnan, Abbot of Iona; by the Annalist Tighernach; also in the Chronicon Scotorum, the Annals of the Four Masters, and O’Flaherty’s Ogygia. The entry of Tighernach is as follows :-” A.D. 637.-The Battle of Magh Bath was fought by Domhnall, son of Aedh, and by the sons of Aedh Slaine, (but Domhnall at this time ruled Temoria), in which fell Congal Cacth, King of Uladh, and Faelan, with many nobles; and in which fell Suibhne, the son of Colman Cuar.” O’Flaherty’s entry is much more minute and copious. We quote from Hely’s translation :- “In the year 637, the battle of Moy-rath, in Ulster, is fought by Domnald the Second, King of Ireland, and the sons of Aid Slany, monarch of Ireland, against Congall Olaen, the son of Scandal, King of Ulidia, who was [had been] vanquished in a battle at Dun Kethern, in the year 629, and banished into Britain for his factious and aspiring measures. He levied a great army for this battle, composed of Albanian Scots, with their king Domnall Brec and his brothers, of Picts, Anglo-Saxons, and Britons. In this battle, which continued for seven days, Congall was killed, the rest obliged to fly in the utmost consternation, and Suwney, the son of Cuar, lord of Dalaradia, was drowned. Concerning this war, Adamnan says as follows:-‘ This prediction was fulfilled in our days, in the war of Rath, when Domnal Bree, the grandson of Aidan, was depopulating, without any provocation, the provinces of Domnill, the grandson of Ainmireeh; and, from that day to this, they have been reduced to the last extremity by foreigners: which gives me the most heartfelt concern.'” But the longest and most interesting account of this battle is found in a historical tale of the fifteenth century, the “Cath Muighe Rath”, translated and edited by Dr. O’Donovan, for the Irish Archeological Society, in 1842 and which the editor says has been evidently compiled from earlier accounts.
