Aeon-Shin-Tooth


I stumbled across this when reading Liber ABA last night. I don't think I've read a similar reference made anywhere else, or if I have, I missed the significance. So I thought I would share.

I thought it was a good metaphor for a change in "Aeon", and also quite illustrative of the Aeon card, and the New Aeon of Crowley (at least as I understand it). The child becoming self sustaining, rather then dependant.

Interesting, I agree, A good metaphor for the crowned and conquering child. I haven't read that one yet, still working on "Do What Thou Wilt" and book 4 is waiting on deck after that.

Interesting Similia. There is a programme in the infant so that the teeth will appear later. This suggests to me that we have a similar Aeonic programming. I am reminded of the Leary/Lilly Exopsycology map of the 8 circuits in the human 'brain'. Two of them (or 3?) are for future programming as we devlope along a certain line (they relate these extra potential circuits to extraterrestial explorations as they believe the circuits are triggered in zero gravity). So perhaps we have certain 'circuits' in ourselves that are triggered by Aeonic progression?
A little far out? Maybe. Yet it seems to me some people slot in quite comfortible with New Aeonic principles without ever even hearing about a New Aeon or Thelema or anything, while others start kicking and screaming without being dragged anywhere near it.

No I haven't, is that a good "primer" for book 4?
