17 September (Mars) Liber VII, 1:49-55

Postby Jim Eshelman » Fri Sep 16, 2011 11:48 pm

49. I Am She that should come, the Virgin of all men.
50. I am a boy before Thee, O Thou satyr God.
51. Thou wilt inflict the punishment of pleasure — Now! Now! Now!
52. Io Pan! Io Pan! I love Thee. I love Thee.
53. O my God, spare me!
54. Now! It is done! Death.
55. I cried aloud the word — and it was a mighty spell to bind the Invisible, an enchantment to unbind the bound; yea, to unbind the bound.

Even in this high place there is resistance—something is afraid. Admittedly, this fear is now just a spice, something of an exquisite tension, more of an addition to the recipe designed to bring out the character of the hot peppers.

But it is still there, this reluctance to walk to the edge of the diving platform. What is it that carries a person over the top, that, despite all the warnings causes them to jump into cauldron? Intoxication, love, experience, trust, insanity?

Love and Will
"I remember seeing Atlas looking at a world whose hoops and rings had been broken by Copernicus, where Tycho Brahe placed his back beneath the globe, and a shouting Ptolemy tried to support the round lump, to stop it from falling into the void. In the mean time Copernicus was breaking many crystal spheres that were placed around the globe and was stamping out the little lights that flickered in the crystal jars." (de Hooghe, Hieroglyphica, Amsterdam, 1744)
