Liber Legis Concordance

About: english concordance for liber legis

Just for amusement I took the online version at uri http://www.sacred-texts.com/oto/engccxx.htm and turned it into a text file & then into an annotated text fine & finally into a concordance. Any errors are due to the orignal text. I used chapter & verse as the references with some exception for those poetic lines which turned into more than one line.  In this latter case each line of poetry has a special subverse reference as the third number.

Enjoy!

Well done

I guess you didn't include The Comment at the end ...
The study of this Book is forbidden. It is wise to destroy this copy after the first reading.
... which i find especially interesting.

But you know what immediately struck me ... the similarity in structure and texture between Liber Legis and the Koran.  Do all of these texts which are narrated by spiritual entities have this kind of linguistic look and feel ?


How difficult would it be to make a  Concordance of the Koran ?

Mark de LA says
My copy of the Koran is 537 pages long with small type. The Koran is organized differently than the Bible. There may already be a concordance such as uri http://www.quranbrowser.com/ or others google Koran concordance . Why don't you explain it's organization ? It seems to be in topics.

Because i don't know anything about it.  I'm not studying the Koran or Liber Legis.  My comment above refered only to my subjective reaction to scanning the text of both books.

I was only doing the explicit text of the verses.  Using the software requires annotating for references or not having any such as just using the line numbers of a text file. Know of a Koran text file somewhere ? It would be rather uninteresting I think without the organization. I think it would be more like a Koran linguistic corpus.

Mark de LA says
The Koran seems in this case to be organized by topic here. It is the product of an oral tradition. When the prophet talked about something others would pass it along as stories which eventually got to be the Koran.  Contrast this with the chronology of the life of Jesus approach of the New Testament & the epistles & testaments of the apostles.

The Koran seems to be organized by chapter and verse as per the reference you provided above. No, i don't know of a flat text file. 

Personally i'm not into the study of religious texts.  I agree with Simon Rushdie that they should be studied as historical texts in the context of whence they came.  Takes a real scolar to do that.  Me thinks people who follow these texts as if they were a message addressed to their real life, are  barking up the wrong tree.  They would do better if they just used Bob Dylan's poetry ... or better still if they wrote their own.

Well if you want to understand the Muslim mind or point of view & this is what is drummed into most of them - there might be a clue in the Koran. It seems to have topics precisely on how life should be conducted.  I would, however, wonder about this one:
source: ... [109.6] You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion.

I thought the Koran was narrated to Mohamad by God and that the Hadith was the oral tradition.  What is the story of how Liber Legis came into existance?

According to Wikipedia the Koran was revealed to Mohammed by the archangel Gabriel over several years.
source: ... Muhammad had a reflective turn of mind and routinely spent nights in a cave (Hira) near Mecca in meditation and thought. Muslims believe that around the year 610, while meditating, Muhammad was visited by the Angel Gabriel.
... & from my copy:













Liber Legis was dictated to AC by a demon named Aiwaz while he was stoned on Peyote.

... ask and ye shall recieve ...

The Book of the Law is the central sacred text of Thelema, written (or received) by Aleister Crowley in Cairo, Egypt in the year 1904. It contains three chapters, each of which was written down in one hour, beginning at noon, on April 8th, 9th, and 10th. Crowley claims that the author was an entity named Aiwass, whom he later referred to as his personal Holy Guardian Angel (or "Secret Self"). Biographer Lawrence Sutin quotes private diaries that fit this story, and writes that "if ever Crowley uttered the truth of his relation to the Book," his public account accurately describes what he remembered on this point.[1] The teachings within this small book are expressed as the Law of Thelema, usually encapsulated by these two phrases:

  • "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" (AL I:40) and
  • "Love is the law, love under will" (AL I:57)

Its full title is Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, The Book of the Law, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI. [2] It is often abbreviated as Liber Legis, Liber AL, or even just AL.

Btw, do you have the old man's copy? ... might be nice to get a high res scan of the title page.

That was worthless in terms of the question & the quote.

There are many copies of LL in the archives. One of them is the copy he took with him on the Rock at Cephalu.

well there is a bit of a difference.  I think (and i may be wrong here) that some interpret The Disbelievers as a foundation for religious tolerance, and other interpret it as a foundation for religious intolerance.  I lobbed the latter at you.

I was trying to see who he put down as the author of the book.

Your sound quote only was an intolerant diatribe. It was not associated with the quote except in your mind. It literally seems to accept that there may be more than one religion. Somewhere else in the Koran it may contradict that notion. Just like various sections of the Bible may be interpreted that way. For balance you might also consider the stuff in this religion.
Anyway this discussion needs to move off the topic of the Concordance of Liber Legis.
I reserve the right to delete or move anthing further.
