FOREWORD. THE BOOK OF LIES, first published in London in , Aleister Crowley's little master work, has long been out of print. Its re-issue with the author's.

Poem of Hashish,” translated from the French of CHARLES BAUDELAIRE by ALEISTER CROWLEY.
Eliphaz Levi knew the true attributions but was forbidden to use them. An indicible Arcanum is an arcanum that cannot be revealed. It is simply bad faith to swear a man to the most horrible penalties if he betray. To obtain money on these grounds, as has been done by certain moderns, is clear and, I trust, indictable fraud.
The secrets of Adepts are not to be revealed to men. We only wish they were.
When a man comes to me and asks for the Truth, I go away and practice teaching the Differential Calculus to a Bushman; and I answer the former only when I have succeeded with the latter.
But to withhold the Alphabet of Mysticism from the learner is the device of a selfish charlatan. That which can be taught shall be taught, and that which cannot be taught may at last be learnt. The question of sacred alphabets has been abandoned as hopeless. As one who should probe the nature of woman, the deeper he goes the rottener it gets; so that at last it is seen that there is no sound bottom. To take one concrete example: the English T is clearly equivalent in sound to the Hebrew t, the Greek t, the Arabic P and the Coptic t, but the numeration is not the same.
Again, we have a clear analogy in shape perhaps a whole series of analogies , which, on comparing the modern alphabets with primeval examples, breaks up and is indecipherable.
The same difficulty in another form permeates the question of gods. Priests, to propitiate their local fetish, would flatter him with the title of creator; philosophers, with a wider outlook, would draw identities between many gods in order to obtain a unity. Time and the gregarious nature of man have raised gods as ideas grew more universal; sectarianism has drawn false distinctions between identical gods for polemical purposes.
Thus, where shall we put Isis, favouring nymph of corn as she was?
As the type of motherhood? As the moon? As the great goddess Earth?
As Nature? As the Cosmic Egg from which all Nature sprang? For as time and place have changed, so she is all of these! Satan, again, who in Job is merely Attorney-General and prosecutes for the Crown, acquires in time all the obloquy attaching to that functionary in the eyes of the criminal classes, and becomes a slanderer.
Does any one really think that any angel is such a fool as to try to gull the Omniscient God into injustice to his saints? Then, on the other hand, what of Moloch, that form of Jehovah denounced by those who did not draw huge profit from his rites?
What of the savage and morose Jesus of the Evangelicals, cut by their petty malice from the gentle Jesus of the Italian children? How shall we identify the thaumaturgic Chauvinist of Matthew with the metaphysical Logos of John? In short, while the human mind is mobile, so long will the definitions of all our terms vary.
Hindus would make a great fuss over this true connection; but it is very nearly the only one. All these beautiful schemes break down sooner or later, mostly sooner. We may then hope that our critics will aid our acknowledged feebleness; and if it be agreed that much learning hath made us mad, that we may receive humane treatment and a liberal allowance of rubber-cores in our old age.
The Tree of Life is the skeleton on which this body of truth is built.
Due to personality clashes with other members and frequent absences from the center of Lodge activity in Great Britain, however, challenges to Mathers's authority as leader developed among the members of the Second Order. They had also become anxious to make contact with the Secret Chiefs themselves, instead of relying on Mathers as an intermediary.
Mathers overrode their decision and quickly initiated him at the Ahathoor temple in Paris on January 16, To the London Adepts, this was the final straw. Farr, already of the opinion that the London temple should be closed, wrote to Mathers expressing her wish to resign as his representative, although she was willing to carry on until a successor was found.
On March 3, a committee of seven Adepts was elected in London, and requested a full investigation of the matter.
Mathers sent an immediate reply, declining to provide proof, refusing to acknowledge the London temple, and dismissing Farr as his representative on March Yeats privately published a pamphlet titled Is the Order of R. Bullock, M. Blackden and J. After a short time, Bullock resigned, and Dr.
