I post the following sheerly for amusement.

There is a Mac program called Deconstructer that takes input text and gives back an altered, re-written text based on various connections, repetitions, etc. I took Crowley's _Book of the Law_ and fed it to this program. I would have combined more, but there seems to be a memory problem. At any rate, below is the result. YMV.

(I didn't rearrange the numbering, evidently the program doesn't quite grasp numbered prose.)

A.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Had! The manifestation of Nuit. 2. The unveiling of the earth in splendour & pride; but always with the joy of my body; by my sacred heart and tongue; by all I can give, by all I can give, by all I can give, by all I can give, by all I can give, by all I desire of ye all. 33. Then the priest fell into a deep trance or swoon, & said unto the God: 37. I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore thee in a secret glory for them that love me. 61. But to love me is better than all the joy; and there is the law, love under will. Nor let the good ones be purged by the Book?

49. Abrogate are all rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs. Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the love of me, and my number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us. They shall gather my children into their fold: they shall call the Abomination of Desolation; count well its name, & it shall be strong in war. 29. Moreover, be they long kept, it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat. 8. The Khabs is the dove, and there he shall behold them. 56. Expect him not seek after this; for thereby there cometh hurt.

23. But whoso availeth in this, let him be the whole of the Prophet and his kin! 29. May Because be accurs

d for ever! 30. If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does naught. 31. If Power asks why, then is rapture of the rituals of the earth in splendour & rapture! Come in our passionate peace, & write sweet words for the dogs. 46.

Dost thou fail? Art thou sorry? Is fear in thine heart? 47. Where I am Heaven, and there is no bond that can unite the divided but love: all else is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are sacred and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the double-wanded one assume my throne and place. Another prophet shall arise, and bring fresh fever from the ill-ordered house in the chance shape of the stars rain hard upon thy body. 63. Thou art exhaust in the love of me, and my lord Hadit. 22. Now, therefore, I am Nuit, and to hell with them, master!

61. There is none that shall be filthy still. 58. Yea! deam not of Thee as One, but as None; and let Asar be the adorant, Isa the sufferer; Hoor in his secret name and splendour is the veil of sorrow, & the words: 77. O be thou proud and mighty among men! 78. Lift up thyself, O my chosen! 26. I am the Lord initiating.

50. There is death for the Equinox of the world, that the chosen priest & apostle of infinite space is the threefold book of Law. 36. My scribe Ankh-af-na-khonsu, the priest or of the letters is done, and I and my word is six and fifty. 25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand. 26. Then saith the prophet unto the Queen of Heaven; Write unto us the rituals, write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the rituals, write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the law! 34. But ye, o my people, rise up & awake!

35. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen: be upon them, o warrior, I will show thee, especial, not unlike the one thou knowest. And it shall be the strength of its glory. He that lives long & desires death much is ever a sun, and she a moon. But to love me is better than all things: if under the night-stars in the song– I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. 4. Yet she shall be filthy still. 58. Yea!

deam not of me. Let Asar be the sign? So she answered him, bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be to you the abstruction from the lust & power of lust in you at the eating thereof. 28. Also ye shall exceed the nations of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my bride: but the highest are of us. 21. We have nothing with the dogs of Reason.

28. Now a curse upon Because and his kin!

29. May Because be accurs

d for ever! 30. If Will stops & does naught. 31. If Power asks why, then is rapture of the Prophet and his kin! 29. May Because be accurs

d for ever! 30. If Will stops & does naught.

31. If Power asks why, then is Power weakness. 32. Also reason is a secret fourfold word, the blasphemy against all gods of men. 16. For he is ever a sun, and she a moon. But to him is the word secret & not only in the song– I am the Hawk-Headed Lord of Silence & of Strength; my nemyss shrouds the night-blue sky. 71. Hail! ye twin warriors about the pillars of the Law is for all. 35. This that thou meanest nought avail; thou shall reveal it: thou availest: they are not of change: ye shall exceed the nations of the innermost sense, desire you. Put on the low men trample in the East at the worship of Nu: she shall achieve Hadit. 46. I am nothing: they do not see me. They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgements of Ra and Tum, Of Khephra and of Ahathoor. I am known to ye by my sacred heart and tongue; by all I can give, by all I desire of ye all. 33. Then the priest answered & said unto the Queen of Heaven; Write unto us the law! 34.

But she said: the ordeals I write not: the rituals shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. Conquer! That is easy; and Hadit burning in thy rapture; fall not in style or value! 55. Thou shalt obtain the order & value of the promise of our agelong love. Come! lift up thine heart & my spangles are purple & green. 51. Purple beyond purple: it it the light higher than eyesight. 52. There is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a Word not known. Spelling is defunct; all is not the Star. This also is secret: my prophet shall reveal it to the aeons! Hell. 42. Let it be ever thus; that men speak not of Thee as One, but as None; and let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the Heathen: be upon them, o warrior, I will slay me her child: I will give him when at last he knoweth me. Since I am above you and in his secret name and splendour is the Word Abrahadabra.

1. Had! The manifestation of Nuit. 2. The unveiling of the hearts of men. 50. Curse them! Curse them! 51. With my claws I tear out the flesh of the Gods; and let her be shameless before all men!

45. Then will I breed from her a child mightier than all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are abased. I will be at your arms in battle & ye shall laugh not long: then when ye are brothers! 59. As brothers fight ye! 60. There is help & hope in other spells. Wisdom says: be strong! Then canst thou bear more joy. Be not animal; refine thy rapture!

If thou drink, drink by the eight and ninety rules of art: if thou do aught joyous, let there be subtlety therein! 71. But exceed! exceed! 72. Strive ever to more! and if thou love, exceed by delicacy; and if thou love, exceed by delicacy; and if thou art overcome: we are none. 67. Hold! Hold!

Bear up in thy heart shall make a great miss. He shall fall before you. 27. Also these shall breed lust & power of lust in you at the worship of the stars into the word. For there are means and means. Be goodly therefore: dress ye all in her love- chant. 63. Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels!

Drink to me, for I love you! 64. I am Heaven, and there is joy. If I lift her to pinnacles of power: then will I breed from her a child mightier than all things: if under the stars, and two. 29. For I am known to ye by my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever as it is the Lord of Silence & of Strength; my nemyss shrouds the night-blue sky. 71. Hail! ye twin warriors about the Hierophantic task. Behold!

there d be it to the prophet unto the God: 37. I adore the might of Thy breath,

Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore thee in the Khu,

not the Star. This also is secret: my prophet shall reveal it to the wise. 58. I give unimaginable joys on earth: certainty, not faith, while in life, upon death; peace unutterable, rest, ecstasy; nor do I feel? Is the word secret & not only in the core of every star. I am perfect, being Not; and my word is six

and fifty.

25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand. 26. Then saith the prophet unto the God: 37. I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee:– I, I adore thee! Appear on the low

men trample in the love of me, and so shall ye come to my joy. I charge you earnestly to come before me & are abased. I will reward you here and hereafter.

53. Fear not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt look

upon with gladness.

But I will cast her out from men: as a shrinking and despised harlot shall she crawl through dusk wet streets, and die cold and an-hungered. 44. But let her raise herself in pride! Let her be loud and adulterous! Let her work the work of wickedness! Let her kill her heart! Let her be covered with jewels, and rich

garments, and let them die in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye come to my name. Trample down the wretched & weak: this is

the veil of sorrow, & the Adorer I am not of change: ye shall delight to slay. Success is thy proof: argue not; convert not; talk not overmuch! Them that seek

to entrap thee, to overthrow thee, them attack without pity or quarter; & destroy the traitors.

I am alone: there is none that shall be the chief of all! 24. I am Infinite Space, and the Buddhist, Mongol and Din. 54. Bahlasti! Ompehda! I spit on your crapulous creeds. 55. Let Mary inviolate be torn upon wheels: for her sake let all be worshipped, for they swell with my force. All before me.

30. My altar is of the Gods. 41. A feast for life and a book to say how thou didst come hither and a reproduction of this make cakes & eat unto me. This hath also another use; let it be burnt down & shattered, yet an invisible house there standeth, and shall stand before you. 9. Lurk! Withdraw! Upon them! this is our law and the lofty chosen ones in the East: thou shalt look upon with gladness.

But I will be at your arms in battle & ye shall exceed the nations of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what. 25. This burn: of this ink and paper for ever–for in it is I that go. 8. Who worshipped Heru-pa-Kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I have given unto him. 21. With the God enthroned in Ra's seat, lightening the girders of the Force of Coph Nia–but my left hand is empty, for I have made a secret door Into the House of Ra Hoor Khuit! 53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world my sister, my heart & my spangles are purple & green. 51.

Purple beyond purple: it it the light higher than eyesight. 52. There is an end of the Snake; another soul of God and beast shall mingle in the core of every star. I am the Hawk-Headed Lord of Thebes, and I want to go on to the prophet and slave of because: They are one; we are none. 67. Hold! Hold! Bear up in thy secret temple – and her soft feet not hurting the little world my sister, my heart & rejoice! We are not for them. I am Life, and the wanga; the work of the world!

are also of my hair the trees of Eternity. 60. My number is nine by the prophet! Then shall this Knowledge go aright. 6. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in you. My ecstasy is in the core of every star. I am known to ye by my name Nuit, and my word is six and fifty. 25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand.

26. Then saith the prophet unto the Queen of Space, kissing her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her eyes shall burn with desire as she stands bare and rejoicing in my coiling there is a light before thine eyes, o prophet, a light before thine eyes, o prophet, when these words are sacred and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the Serpent flame therein, thou shalt not be sorry. Thou are emphatically my chosen; and blessed are the eyes of Jesus as he will: there is a veil: that veil is black. It is the creation of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast no right but to do this. 22. The other images group around me to support me: led!

Accurst

blood flow to my name. Trample down the wretched & weak: this is the law, love under will. Nor let the good ones be cast down or lifted up: all is ever a sun, and she a moon. But to love me is better than all the joy; and there is a foolish word: for it is said: The light is mine; it rays consume Me: I have a secret fourfold word, the blasphemy against all gods of men.

50. Curse them! 51. With my Hawk's head I peck at the eyes that thou meanest nought avail; thou shall reveal it to the numbers & the Adorer I am perfect, being Not; and my word is six and fifty. 25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand. 26. Then saith the prophet and slave of because: They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgements of Ra and Tum, Of Khephra and of Vengeance. I shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the word.

For there are love and love. There is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a curse. Accurs
