I'd also suggest digging out an old essay called "Animal-Headed Gods, Evangelists, Saints and Righteous Men" by Zofia Ameisenowa (1949, Journal of the Warburg Institute) which connects the union of animal and human in the ancient consciousness with the process of being turned into a star.

Ameisenowa focusses on Ophite Gnosticism, which (to my mind) makes it all the more approproate for consideration to LUST. And because of the date, it's quite likely that Crowley would have been more than a little familiar with it as an academic position.

Anyone have any sense of Crowley's awareness of Warburg and his Institute? Now there's a meeting I would have loved to witness.
