But in this story, as in so many others, what we really discern is the deceptive, ambiguous, and giddy riddle of violence, passion, poetry, and symbolism that lies at the heart of Greek myth and refuses to be solved. An algebra too unstable properly to be computed, it is human-shaped and god-shaped, not pure and mathematical.

In Nomine Babalon, CXXVIII

CXXVIII

Come forth, my lady, take form in the smoke!

Goddess of Passion, Thee, Thee I invoke!

O divine whore hear my incantation,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Cups overflow with the waters of love,

Two side by side receive grace from above.

From the heart of the lotus, passion flows on,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

I call to the God of Force and Fire

To ignite the spark of my lady’s desire

And to fan the flames of my burning passion!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Synthesis in The Gate of the Sanctuary from The Temple of the Holy Ghost (Collected Works, Vol I) by Aleister Crowley.

“Many, so many, were ye to make one Womanhood—
A thing of fire and flesh, of wine and glory and blood,
In whose rose-orient texture a golden light is spun,
A gossamer scheme of love, as water in the sun
Flecked by wonderful bars, most delicately crossed,
Worked into wedded beauties, flickering, never lost—
That is the spirit of love, incarnate in your flesh!
Your bodies had wearied me, but your passion was ever fresh:
You were many indeed, but your love for me was one.” [via]
