HISTORY REPEATS

OF CABBAGES AND KINGS AND DEAD MEN WHO FOLLOW THEM

"13. In 1900 one P., a brother, instituted a rigorous test of S.R.M.D.
on the one side and the Order on the other.
14. He discovered that S.R.M.D., though a scholar of some ability and a
magician of remarkable powers, had never attained complete
inititiation: and further had fallen from his original place, he having
imprudently attracted to himself forces of evil too great and terrible
for him to withstand.
The claim of the Order that the true adepts were in charge of it was
definitely disproved.
15. In the Order, with two certain exceptions and two doubtful ones, he
found no persons prepared for initiation of any sort.
16. He thereupon by his subtle wisdom destroyed both the Order and its
chief."
Aleister Crowley, Liber LXI from "The History Lection"


A Brahman wrote seven stanzas in praise of his king's copper-colored
silk robes. Seven men heard these stanzas and resolved to trick a
foolish king from another city. Traveling to that city, the seven men
said to the king, "Maharaja, what sort of robe is your majesty wearing?
We have woven a copper-colored silk robe for the king of our city. It
is like the thin silk robes from the divine world. In comparison to our
king, you look like one of his servants." Thus spoke the seven men.
These words brought shame to the king. Thus filled with shame, he
thought to himself, "I too am a king. Can I not have such robes woven
for me as well?" Then he asked, "What would you require to weave such
silk robes?"
