Well … supposedly an urban legend.
One episode of this epic adventure tells of the founding of an “Abbey of Thelema” as an institution for the cultivation of human virtues, which Rabelais identified as being squarely opposite the prevailing Christian proprieties of the time. The sole rule of the Abbey of Thelema was: “Do what thou wilt”. This has become one of the basic tenets of Thelemic philosophy today.
# It is not a stylizied "666".
# The closest thing to an explanation from the man himself came on his November 1994 appearance on "Denton" with Plant. At the end of their interview a member of the studio audience yelled "What's your symbol mean Jimmy?" After some confusion as to what was being yelled, understanding dawned on Plant's face and he replied "Frying tonight". Page did not elaborate further.
# It most likely has absoluely nothing to do with Curious George The Monkey, known as Zoso, a character in English children's books. Emphasis added.
“just Ayn Rand’s philosophy, with ceremony and ritual added"

No need for apologies, none at all. This is exactly what ATS is for, in my opinion. Because of your post, I had an urge to go looking for more info. I now know more about Levay and Crowley than I did previously, and because of the OP, I'm going to search for even more info on the great Jimmy Page's fascination with the works of Crowley. EXACTLY the point of ATS, I reckon!
