So, if we accept that the inability to respond with both head & heart leads to unconscious reaction, ie ill-considered thoughts & actions (head & hand), or the supremacy of The Beast, what then is its Mark? Going back to the beginning of my discussion of Religion & following through from its propensity to stifle examination of itself to its doctrines which proscribe self-examination amongst adherents except within strict, non-sinful, boundaries, isn't it clear that Religion itself is The Mark of The Beast? For who can trust anyone whose beliefs make them literally unable to be anything but irresponsible?
Like it or not, another part of our physical legacy is that we are gregarious beasts. What is more corrosive to individual interactions than a lack of trust?
Finally then consider the phrase "Love Your Beast" & then consider the often misunderstood quote from Aliester Crowley (nicknamed The Beast ) "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law."
If we were truly responsible, able to accept our physical nature & exercise it appropriately, understanding that others have very similar needs & thus require the same space to be themselves, then what need is there for any other law?
If you've followed me from the beginning, thank you & goodnight!
