Chapter 70: Broom Stick Babblings:

Chapter 70: Broom Stick Babblings FRATER PERDURABO is of the Sanhedrim of the Sabbath, say men; He is the Old Goat himself, say women. Therefore do all adore him; the more they detest him the more do they adore him. Ay! let us offer the Obscene Kiss! Let us seek the Mystery of the Gnarled Oak, and of the Glacier Torrent! To Him let us offer up our babes! Around Him let us dance in the mad moonlight! But FRATER PERDURABO is nothing but AN EYE; what eye none knoweth . Skip, witches! Hop, toads! Take your pleasure! -- for the play of the Universe is the pleasure of FRATER PERDURABO. 70 is the number of the letter Ain , the Devil in the Tarot. The chapter refers to the Witches' Sabbath, the description of which in Payne Knight should be carefully read before studying this chapter. All the allusions will then be obvious, save those which we proceed to note. Sanhedrim, a body of 70 men. An Eye. Eye in Hebrew is Oin , 70. The "gnarled oak" and the "glacier torrent" refer to the confessions made by many witches. Paragraph 6 states a fact unsuited to the grade of any reader of this book. In paragraph 7 is seen the meaning of the chapter; the obscene and distorted character of much of the universe is a whim of the Creator.

DeLancre’s Depiction of the Witches’ Sabbath:

DeLancre’s Depiction of the Witches’ Sabbath

Payne Knight’s Witches Sabbath:

Payne Knight’s Witches Sabbath Sabbaths are ecstatic mystical rites Entheogenic hallucinations Flying ointment applied in 2 parts Continuation of generative/Dionysian/phallic sex rites

Adore Him/Detest Him:

Adore Him/Detest Him Some of the witches examined spoke of the delight with which they attended the Sabbath. Jeanne Dibasson , a woman twenty-nine years old, said that the Sabbath was the true Paradise, where there was far more pleasure than can be expressed; that those who went there found the time so short by reason of the pleasure and enjoyment, that they never left it without marvelous regret, so that they looked forward with infinite impatience to the next meeting.

Obscene Kisses:

Obscene Kisses He has a great tail behind, with a form of a face under it, with which face he does not utter a word, but it serves only to offer to kiss to those he likes, honouring certain witches of either sex more than the others Satan had a face before and another behind his head, as they represent the god Janus

Gnarled Oak:

Gnarled Oak Sometimes [the devil] assumed a form … which presented a confused idea of something between a tree and a man which is compared … to the old decayed cypresses on the summit of a high mountain, or to aged oaks whose heads already bear the marks of approaching decay.

Glacier Torrent:

Glacier Torrent She always fought to avoid the embraces of the devil, because it caused her an extreme pain and she added that what came from him was cold, and never produced pregnancy. Nobody ever became pregnant at the Sabbath.

Offered Babes:

Offered Babes Babies offered were set aside as servants, note children with wands tending the frogs; also hostages to keep the witches true to their oaths

What is he talking about?:

What is he talking about? SEX!!! Fuckin’!!! The old “in-out, in-out”!!! … Right? Lon Milo DuQuette , in The Magick of Aleister Crowley said: “Be that as it may, I take exception to those who with knowing winks and nudges, would have us believe that The Star Sapphire, or Liber XV, or a host of other Crowley rituals are merely elaborate blinds for a variety of exotic sex acts. All Magic is sexual. Indeed, all life is sexual. It is either overt or implied, invoked or directed, stored or released. The Mass of the Roman Catholic Church is every bit as much a pantomime of the sex act as the “Great Rite” of the witches. The real question is “what is sex a symbol of?”

The Necessary Framework:

The Necessary Framework Who are You? Crowned Creation Man created in God’s image as companion Everyone loves us Descent into Matter Received a portion of the Powers of each Planetary Governor on the way down Mortal and Immortal for the sake of Love Why are you here? Created in Image of God for Companionship To be a god To speak the world into being

World creation…:

World creation… 00. One is the Magus: twain His forces: four His weapons. These are the Seven Spirits of Unrighteousness; seven vultures of evil. Thus is the art and craft of the Magus but glamour. How shall He destroy Himself? 0. Yet the Magus hath power upon the Mother both directly and through Love. And the Magus is Love, and bindeth together That and This in His Conjuration. 1. In the beginning doth the Magus speak Truth, and send forth Illusion and Falsehood to enslave the soul. Yet therein is the Mystery of Redemption. 2. By his Wisdom made He the Worlds; the Word that is God is none other than He. 3. How then shall He end His speech with Silence? For He is Speech. 4. He is the First and the Last. How shall He cease to number Himself? 5. By a Magus is this writing made known through the mind of a Magister. The one uttereth clearly, and the other understandeth ; yet the Word is falsehood, and the Understanding darkness. And this saying is Of All Truth. 6. Nevertheless it is written; for there be times of darkness, and this as a lamp therein. 7. With the Wand createth He. 8. With the Cup preserveth He. 9. With the Dagger destroyeth He. 10. With the Coin redeemeth He. 11. His weapons fulfil the wheel; and on What Axle that turneth is not known unto Him.

Skipping Witches and Hopping Toads:

Skipping Witches and Hopping Toads Broomstick Babblings: Skip, witches! Hop, toads! Take your pleasure! -- for the play of the Universe is the pleasure of FRATER PERDURABO. In paragraph 7 is seen the meaning of the chapter; the obscene and distorted character of much of the universe is a whim of the Creator. Liber B Vel Magi 15. Now the grade of a Magister teacheth the Mystery of Sorrow, and the grade of a Magus the Mystery of Change, and the grade of Ipsissimus the Mystery of Selflessness, which is called also the Mystery of Pan. 16. Let the Magus then contemplate each in turn, raising it to the ultimate power of Infinity. Wherein Sorrow is Joy, and Change is Stability, and Selflessness is Self. For the interplay of the parts hath no action upon the whole. Book of the Law (II:9-14) 9. Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains. 10. O prophet! thou hast ill will to learn this writing. 11. I see thee hate the hand & the pen; but I am stronger. 12. Because of me in Thee which thou knewest not. 13. for why? Because thou wast the knower, and me. 14. Now let there be a veiling of this shrine: now let the light devour men and eat them up with blindness!
