Aiwass in the name of the higher being that Aleister Crowley claimed dictated The book of the Law, which is the main text in Thelema, Aiwass
was meant to have worked on it in 1904. Crowley has described his encounter with Aiwass many times. He described it in detail in The Equinox of the
Gods, Aleister said that he was sitting at his desk in Cairo When suddenly a deep, passionate, hurried voice came over his left shoulder from far back
in the room. On his death bed he claimed that Aiwass was Satan. This next part is yet unsure, Aleister either saw, or pictured Aiwass as a tall dark
man in his thirty's with the appearance of a savage war king and amazingly strong. Aiwass was said to be wearing a robe which he though may of been
from Assyria or Persia, modern day Iraq. Aiwass is meant to of said "in The Book of the Law did I write the secrets of truth that are like unto a
star and a snake and a sword." He is said to of said this in the Liber 418. Crowley says that later on this being manifested into the form of a
pyramid of light.
