Commentary (ΜΒ) on ΚΕΦΑΛΗ ΜΒ Dust-Devils in Liber CCCXXXIII, The Book of Lies by Aleister Crowley.

“The word ‘turbulence’ is applied to the Ego to suggest the French ‘tourbillion’, whirlwind, the false Ego or dust-devil.

True life, the life, which has no consciousness of ‘I’, is said to be choked by this false ego, or rather by the thoughts which its explosions produce. In paragraph 4 this is expanded to a macrocosmic plane.” [via]
