“In order to fill the 0 slot left by the Neophyte Grade which had then become the Grade of the first, Crowley invented the Grade of Probationer. For the first Grade Crowley retained the formula of the Neophyte from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn which, as was above explained, is for all practical purposes a condensation of the three degrees of Ancient Craft Freemasonry, sans the dramatic portion of the Master Mason degree. The dramatic portion he apparently recast in the Zelator Grade (now the Grade of the second) as the ritual described in Liber Cadaveris, Ritual CXX, of Passing through the Tuat, per The Cry of the 18th Aethyr, Which is Called ZEN from his magical working of John Dee and Edward Kelley’s Enochian Thirty Aethyrs, Liber XXX AERUM vel Saeculi sub figura CCCCXVIII, better known as The Vision and the Voice. In said ritual, the candidate is shut up in a tomb as though deceased for no less than seventy-two hours before being, in a symbolic sense, resurrected. The parallels to the dramatic portion of the Master Mason degree are readily apparent to anyone who has been Raised to the Sublime Degree.”
