In the Continuum now available through Vol. V

Postby Jim Eshelman » Thu Apr 02, 2009 7:36 am

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

College of Thelema is pleased to announce that about 90% of all issues of it's publication In the Continuum are now available for free download. See: http://thelema.org/publications/itc.html

Previously, Vol. I was available. We now have all but the last 5 issues of Vol. ready (and somehow the very important II:4 get left out for the moment) - these remaining six issues will be released in this format in the near future.

The formats are high-quality PDF files, with a superior print quality to the earlier ones, and created to be completely searchable. If you already have downloaded the earlier versions, I encourage you to download them again to get the better copies. (These are large files, though - a consequence of the searchability.)

There is no charge for these issues, but your U.S. tax-deductible donations are appreciated and help support the continuing work of College of Thelema. A PayPal link is provided next to the download links for your use, if you wish.

I.T.C. covers almost 25 years of continuous publication and is the predominant surviving work product of A.'.A.'. adept Phyllis Seckler (Soror Meral). For many of us, it was The Equinox of our era. This release is the first of several special projects celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the founding of Temple of Thelema, and we are very happy to make these valuable works available in this format.

Is there any way you can tell us which grades Meral had attained between the first Volume and Volume 5?

She never would claim anything past 5=6 in public. She finally agreed I could say, after she was gone, that she was at least a 6=5.

I have my own speculations - things that can be tracked through her poetry, work she was doing, etc. - but since they are informal speculations, I'd probably just confound things by saying.

I'll say this: One justification for her not claiming 6=5 until after 1993 was that it was the first year one of her students worked through the system, step by step, to 5=6. That's a formal requirement for being recognized as 6=5. But I trace her developmental attainment of that grade to the early 1970s. (She was formally recognized as 5=6 in 1952 IIRC.)

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I noticed that in the PDF for ITC Vol 2 Issue 2 that several pages are missing. It jumps from page one to page eight and it apears there are other pages missing as well. I haven't had time to look through the others yet but as I work through them systematically I will note if there are other missing pages and let you know.

By the way, although I expressed my gratitude in your making these available in this format when you made volume one available, I just wanted to say thank you once again. Soror Meral's work is important and it is good to see that it is still being offered.

Thanks. I'll ask our team to correct this. (It happens! Apologies.)

If anyone finds any other gaps, please let us know - we'll fix.

You're welcome. This work is fundamental to what College of Thelema is. We're pleased to make it available in this form.

Just a further update regarding missing pages. There are other issues with missing pages, so far, I've found them in the two I've mentioned (ITC 2:2 and ITC 2:7) but also ITC 2:12 (the ITC Index of Vol 1 and Vol. 2 is missing pages); ITC 3:1 and ITC 3:3.

I haven't found any gaps. I downloaded the last issues of I.T.C. and started working my way back wards. What caught my eye, were the pages that are upside down.
They are:
I.T.C.Vol.3.VII
2nd page.
20th page.
28th page.
44th page.
I.T.C.Vol.3.VIII
2nd page.
20th page.
26th page.

Also, please allow me to say that the subject matter of In the Continuum, is the best, I have ever seen on Thelemic thought and scholarship! It's Stunning. :shock:
Thank you all.

Thanks, all. I also sent a list to our team about this. Apologies for the inconvenience. A new generation (with more QA attention) is forthcoming.

Again, thanks for your interest and your labors.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Even if you've downloaded these issues previously, you may want to return and download In the Continuum again: http://thelema.org/publications/itc.html

As of this morning, all issues are now available in a new form with two advantages:
1. They are bundled in half-volume files (5 or 6 issues per file), which may be more convenient for you. (Many of us have our original copies physically bound in half-volume books.)
2. The production errors reported in the previous scans have been corrected.

Also, I will be uploading the corrected individual issue files over the next several days, and will note here when those have been done. As of now, only the "bundles" have the corrected pages. (Getting them up was my priority.) The other files are on hand, and constitute substantial uploads, so I may stretch it over a few nights.

In the Continuum was The Equinox of my generation. I encourage you to make use of this resource.

Thanks for these new download files go to Chad Augur, one of the Governors of Temple of Thelema's Agape Pronaos No. 4 in San Francisco.

Hey there Jim,

I just wanted to check in with you re: the missing pages mentioned above. Your last post on this thread says that the errors were corrected in the upload of last February (2010) but, having just downloaded from the thelema.org site, I can confirm that the pages are still missing. :(

Specifically, I'm looking at Vol. 3, No. 6 (the beginning of the Trumps of Thoth and Psychology series). Pages 4-9 (the majority of the essay on The Fool) are still missing as are the various other pages mentioned in Frater XCIII's post above. Any insight on where I might find these missing pages?

Thanks in advance,
GE

Hello.

Vol. 3, No. 6 is still with missing pages.

I hope someday we can have all the volumes fixed and complete!

Thank you to Jim and his Team for the work. :wink:

I'm not checked the rest of pdf.
