    Crowley and OTO references in the Star Wars trilogy:

    - Crowley was OHO of the Order of Oriental Templars (OTO) and Lucas'
    original name for the Jedi Knights was the Jedi Templars.

    - Crowley's secret name in the OTO was supposed to have been 'Phoenix'
    and the symbol of the Rebel Alliance is a stylised phoenix.

    - The windows in the Emperor's chambers at the climax of Return of the
    Jedi spell 'OTO'.

    - from the Book of the Law, dictated to Crowley: 'the obeah and the
    wanga, the work of the wand and the work of the sword, these he shall
    learn and teach.' Obeah = Obi. Wanga = Wan. Thus, Obi-Wan. And what
    device is a wand one moment and a sword the next? A lightsaber, of
    course; and the relevance of 'learn and teach' is obvious, since Obi-Wan
    is the teacher.

    - Vader's sabre is red, the colour of the sphere of Geburah, or
    Severity: Obi-Wan's is blue, the colour of its opposing sphere, Chesed
    or Mercy.

    - Crowley makes references to 'the dwarf insane yet crafty' who is the
    source of true Wisdom, obviously a reference to Yoda.

    - The greatest ordeal in Crowley's A.'.A.'. system is the 'crossing of
    the abyss'. One reaches the brink of a great gulf and must either
    surrender everything one is and jump, or remain behind to become a
    'black brother' or 'brother of the left hand path'. The 'crossing of the
    abyss' is foreshadowed in A New Hope, at the point at which Luke and
    Leia swing over the chasm, but is actually achieved in full in Empire
    Strikes Back, at the climax of the film.

    In the climax of Empire, Luke's right hand is severed at the wrist,
    implying that he must take the left hand path and turn to the Dark Side,
    i.e. become a 'black brother'. Faced with the choice of crossing the
    Abyss or turning to the 'Left Hand Path', Luke chooses to jump, which is
    the act that redeems him from a future of corruption.

    - Luke is also the Horus figure, the avenger (as in Revenge of the Jedi,
    the original title). In the climax of Empire, Vader (previously
    identified with Set, the murderer of the father) is revealed to _be_ the
    father, the dark Osiris - this being the same secret that was revealed
    in the Egyptian Mysteries, namely that 'Osiris is a Black God!'

    - The 'Black Brethren' are those who have 'shut themselves up', become
    encased and closed off from the Universe, exactly as Vader is encased in
    black armour. Their sphere on the Tree of Life is the false sphere
    'da'ath', obviously the source for 'Darth'.

    - Vader out of his armour proves to be a bald guy with an English
    accent, uncannily reminiscent of Crowley.

    very interesting indeed.....thanks for posting this brother Darkside.....I meant to ask you this....why is it the darkside has more power? Doesnt this relate to the Universe operating on opposites ie Dark and light....bad and good....male and female? Why is it one side has more power is it because people are afraid to embrace that other side of them?

    Darkness is not the opposite of light, it is the absence of it. Same with evil and good.

    Darkside may have a better answer to your question but from my understanding, from what I have heard from other occultists, while both the lightside/celestial spirits and the darkside/infernal spirits have to be fed (exchange of energy). The darkside spirits usually have no objection to what you want because they are amoral. While on the other hand, the lightside spirits maybe fickle on whether or not they will help you in your workings because most of the time, they are bound by their moralistic character.

    EVEN THE SO CALLED LIGHT-SIDE SPIRITS CAN GET YOU TOO. SOME OF THEM IS AMORAL TOO IF NOT ALL OF THEM. IT HOW YOU PRESENT YOUR ARGUEMENT TO THEM.

    My Sauntering

    Outside of the observer (which would eliminate the bias of ascertaining the epitomie of Darkness or absolute absence of light) I can conceptualize (without direct perception) the epitomie of Darkness being actually light and vice versa which would make them complementary opposites.

    The PROCESS of it infinitely caving into itself to absolve itself of any trace of light creates a disturbance that is a manifestation of the light escaping COMPLETE obliteration. The LAW that darkness must complete or fulfill itself (its definition) creates a powerfully entropic force (light , quanta, movement) which shatters into what we now percive as this realm of forms. In the so called sphere of light darkness does the same thing and light agreesively seeks to actualize itself to no avail which sustains the eternal "WHAT IS". ok ....lol I just CON- FUSED myself

    *Check the movie "Eternal Sunlight of the spotless mind"* not for absolution but ideas related to.
