[QUOTE=Ventrue]Can A.C's religious worldview (or lack thereof) be summarized?[/QUOTE]
Try having a look around Thelemapedia. In particular the sections on Thelema, Agape, True Will, and the Holy Guardian Angel.

Love is the law, love under will.

I was kinda looking for just a tad bit less compressed maybe :)

In my opinion, Crowley's religious worldview is that each person is fundamentally unique and divine, and should seek to realize this as fully as possible. This is what "Every Man and Every Woman is a Star" means.

"Do What Thou Wilt..." etc. is the "commandment" of Thelema;

"Love is the Law..." etc. is the method of Thelema.

The best statement of Thelemic ethics is given in "Liber OZ" -

This is my favorite on-line biography of Crowley.

A biography is only tangentially related to a "religious worldview" I realize, but there is a lot of good and funny commentary here.

Liber Oz - The Book of the Goat or The Book of Strength!
Drop the Hierophant in the middle and guess who's name pops up? ;)

[QUOTE=Alta]he postulates that the entire Hebrew language is based on numerical values[/QUOTE]
this predates Crowley by thousands of years, this is basic Kabbalah he adopted

i'm late to join this group but here i am..

[b]1:1 Had! The manifestation of Nuit.[/b]
[b]2:1 Nu! the hiding of Hadit.[/b]
[/QUOTE]

this is really key.. the hiding is a revealing, every revealing (insight) begins another concealing..

the process of uncovering (magical study, raising via serpent power etc), and also seeing (appreciating) the revealing in concealing (existence unfolding) is the point and the practice (essentially the same as Kabbalah)
