Stele of vital is it?

The more research I do on the hieroglyphs on the Stele, the more clear it becomes that Crowley didn't really have that firm a grasp of what it was actually all about. This raises a few thought-provoking questions.

What is the relationship between the Stele and the Book of the Law? Does it play as crucial a role to the formation of Thelema as modern scholarship would lead us to believe? If the archetypal messengers known as Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit represent the figures on the Stele, did they try to convey to Crowley the true meaning of the Stele through the BoL? Or was the Stele simply the catalyst, something that sparked Crowley's thought processes and affirmed to him Rose's mediumistic abilities?
