firesea: self-portrait

on the shores of far Chaldee

Looking over the Chaldean Oracles today - very interesting stuff, but the syntax makes Crowley sound like Dr. Seuss in comparison. Yoicks.

"Stoop not down into that darkly splendid world wherein continually lieth a faithless depth, and Hades wrapped in gloom; delighting in unintelligible images, precipitous, winding; a black ever-rolling abyss, ever espousing a body unluminious, formless, and void."
