The rituals are like modified Hip-Hop and Zumba moves, set to an LOLable nonsense poem. I could go on and on pointing out everything silly about it, and don't think that you are any less ridiculous for sitting here having a "serious" discussion on Thelema.

Authorship is not dependent on real or feigned dissociative identity disorder
Aiwass in no more the author of the book of the law, than the Persian prophet Zarathustra is the author of Thus spoke Zarathustra, or the blind film critic "Zampano" in the author of any part of "House of leaves" or aliens from Serius B are the authors of Cosmic Trigger, God in the author of the bible, or Harvey the Pucca directed the movie Harvey.

He never claimed it (and he claimed all sorts of things). He specifically disavowed it. And he was the only witness, so there's no basis for doubting his uncontested testimony.
Crowley had some sort of mental phenomena, hallucination or dream, or dissociative episode.
a long dead Egyptian priest could in some way transcend death and space time, concentrate his existence into a shadowy figure, and beam his thoughts into a man who will not even be born for centuries, in order to communicate a message on behalf of beings some how conscious though not consistent of any material nor localised in space time
