Notes

Book of Power

Only the Chosen

Elitism: An "ordinary man." "Lower consciousness." [1] Undeveloped. Excluded. External to the temple.

Wirth provides an arrogant description of the fool as a "toy of occult powers," someone who is "easily influenced and it "incapable of resisting outside influences." "Subject to domination", with no free will. A slave[2]. This person "does not count because of his lack of intellectual and moral existence."[3]

Book of Slavery

A "journey" through life. A journey to enlightenment. The key figure in a "deep spiritual journey" [4] A "journey in consciousness." (p. x). Through "experience" ... "we and the universe become one." (p. 110).
