From previous discussions, it's clear that Thelemites have many different opinions as to the meaning of the Aeon of Horus. But within Thelema, the inaugural event of the Aeon isn't in dispute: the reception of The Book of the Law in 1904. What other key events has the Aeon seen since then?
From my perspective, these would include the two World Wars, as illustrative of the martial aspect of Horus, particularly the invention and deployment of the Atomic Bomb, a candidate for the war engine of Liber AL. Then there's the sexual revolution, as a manifestation of Babalon, and the advent of AIDS as its tragic shadow. The popularity of psychedelics has played an important role in the"strange drugs" category. Lastly, computers and the Internet have greatly expanded our ability to cause change in conformity with will.
What's on your list?
