"The Candidate is made ready for the Ordeal by general athletic training, and by feasting. On the appointed day he is attended by one or more chosen and experienced attendants whose duty is (a) to exhaust him sexually by every known means (b) to rouse him sexually by every known means. Every device and artifice of the courtesan is to be employed, and every stimulant known to the physician. Nor should the attendants reck of danger, but hunt down ruthlessly their appointed prey.
Finally the Candidate will into a sleep of utter exhaustion, resembling coma, and it is now that delicacy and skill must be exquisite. Let him be roused from this sleep by stimulation of a definitely and exclusively sexual type. Yet if convenient, music wisely regulated will assist.
The attendants will watch with assiduity for signs of waking; and the moment these occur, all stimulation must cease instantly, and the Candidate be allowed to fall again into sleep; but no sooner has this happened than the former practice is resumed. This alteration is to continue indefinitely until the Candidate is in a state which is neither sleep nor waking, and in which his Spirit, set free by perfect exhaustion of the body, and yet prevented from entering the City of Sleep, communes with the Most High and the Most Holy Lord God of its being, maker of heaven and earth.
The Ordeal terminates by failure---the occurence of sleep invincible--- or by success, in which ultimate waking is followed by a final performance of the sexual act. The Initiate may then be allowed to sleep, or the practice may be renewed and persisted in until death ends all. The most favourable death is that occurring during the orgasm, and is called Mors Justi.
As it is written: Let me die the death of the Righteous, and let my last end be like his!"
Despite his parlous economic circumstances, Crowley focused his attention on sex magick. Not many years previously, he and a follower named Jeanne Foster (a.k.a. Soror Hilarion) had conducted a sex-magickal rite designed to give birth to a child destined to carry on Crowley's work. I have not been able to determine whether he conducted similar experiments with Nellie, although given the polyamorous proclivities of all the parties involved, one should not discount the possibility.
Nellie's friend Pauline no doubt scandalized her social circle by traveling to France on her own and leaving two very young children in the care of nursemaids. However, her correspondence with her friend -- whose life in France with a famous literary figure must have seemed quite glamorous -- can only have inspired a sense of wanderlust. Her husband, increasingly bound to his duties with the McCall Corporation, did not share this spirit of adventure.
Thus it was that four individuals came together: Frank Harris, Nellie O'Hara, Pauline Pierce, and Aleister Crowley. Anyone who has studied Crowley's life will understand that what happened next was, in a sense, inevitable.
Crowley's diaries for this period record the initials "PVN," a cryptic reference to his favorite sexual position, which some of his partners found distasteful. (The letters derive from the Latin for "By way of the Infernal Entrance.") This is a common annotation in the records of Crowley's magical practices. We also find the strange initials "ECL." After researching the matter for some time, I have come to the conclusion that this is a reference to the practice known as "Eroto-Comotose Lucidity."
Before proceeding, I should emphasize that the year 1924 has a special significance in the Crowley chrnology. At this time, he is said to have undergone the "supreme ordeal" connected with his attainment of the Grade of Ipsissimus, the highest magickal achievement within his order. The exact nature of this ordeal remains mysterious. I believe that an important clue can be found in his description of the rite of Eroto-Comotose Lucidity:
Marvin Pierce (17 June 1893–17 July 1969), was president of McCall Corporation, the publisher of the popular women's magazines Redbook and McCall's. He was born in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania and was a 1916 graduate of Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.
His ancestor, an early New England colonist named Thomas Pierce, was also an ancestor of Franklin Pierce, the 14th President of the United States. He is the maternal grandfather of President George W. Bush.
At Miami University, he was nicknamed "Monk" and was a stand-out athlete in football and several other sports. He was inducted into Miami's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1972.
Pierce married Pauline Robinson whom W magazine once described as "beautiful, fabulous, critical, and meddling" and "a former beauty from Ohio with extravagant tastes". On 23 September 1949, Pauline was killed in an automobile accident when Marvin, who was driving the car, lost control as he reached over to stop a cup of hot coffee from sliding across the seat onto his wife. The car crashed into a stone wall, killing Pauline instantly.
Their third child was Barbara Pierce, later became the wife of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush.
More later something is preventing me from typing in this thread.

To the one who asked about Crowleys involvement with the Masons, the answer is yes, he was at one of the highest levels of Freemasonry. The founder of the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis) and the creator of Mystery Babylon Religion or otherwise known as Thelema. I was browsing the US Grande Lodge website which is very heavily filled with sensitive documents regarding this cult and their functions. It seems that their main focus is to turn Islam and Christianity into mega religions and bring them to war with each other, kinda like what we see going on right now. I have also seen notes indicating that they have been editing the Kaballa etc. They also have seemed to suppress knowledge and documentation left by the Knights Templar etc. This website is loaded with interesting stuff. Also take note of the OTO logo, a seven pointed star that resembles the great Pyramid from an angle.

The system of Crowley is not the "Mystery Babylon Religion", or even a religion at all. By reading Magick Without Tears (available on the internet with a google search) in the chapter on Thelema as a New Religion Crowley clearly delineates Thelema as not being a religion.
Having studied Crowley for 15+ years and known a few who knew him, I'd say he would be against an NWO type movement. See his work on the Three Schools of Magick, again, google it.

Just for further clarification. I am trying to identify "The Great Whore" also discover what exactly what happened during the "Eroto-Comotose Lucidity" Ritual. Furthermore I am trying to unveil the identity of GW's natural birth parents, as I feel that would clear things up quite a bit.

It isn't so much that Barbara Bush is the daughter of Alesteir Crowely and Pauline Pierce, but rather Barbara Bush is the daughter of Satan and George W. Bush the grandson of Satan. Now is that the truth? I don't know, but I think mother together with the son form the MABUS of the Nostradamus prophecy.
