Avete,

'Scuse me? ... and why is Thoth deck "quasi G.D.'?

Because the Thoth deck doesn’t adhere to Book T explicitly, on which the GD tarot is based. Crowley has added Thelemic symbolism to his deck, which adheres with his spiritual vision and experiences. For example Atu XX Aeon compared to The Last Judgment. This is a categorical and comprehensive example.

Your answer of simply “Yes” is a grotesquely lame answer -in the extreme-
The hidden depths and formulas on which the alchemical process is derived from the progression of the Philosophic Egg are wide and vast. With all due respect, the mysteries of the Orphic egg as an incomparable prognosticator to the Great Work requires a little more in depth discussion, other than “yes”

Yours Fraternally,
Frater Sar Scaramanger.
