Use in Thelemic Writings

The Book of the Law (Liber AL vel Legis)

Notes on Usage

Context

The reason given is "Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the Equinox of the Gods and let Asar be with Isa who also are one." The passage goes on apparently to outline a new form (actually three "ways") of initiation.

Revision History

The word are was added by Crowley later. This change yields a shift in voice from active to passive.

Compare for yourself! What differences in meaning were wrought by this change of voice?
