      (7° = 4°)
      6° = 5°
      the reward of Ra Hoor Khut.
      There is division hither homeward; there is a word not known. Spelling is defunct; all is not aught. Beware! Hold! Raise the spell of Ra-Hoor-Khuit!
      Now let it be first understood that I am a god of War and of Vengeance. I shall deal hardly with them.
      Choose ye an island!
      Fortify it!
      Dung it about with enginery of war!
      I will give you a war-engine.
      With it ye shall smite the peoples; and none shall stand before you.
      Lurk! Withdraw! Upon them! this is the Law of the Battle of Conquest: thus shall my worship be about my secret house.
      Get the stélé of revealing itself; set it in thy secret temple—and that temple is already aright disposed—& it shall be your Kiblah for ever. It shall not fade, but miraculous colour shall come back to it day after day. Close it in locked glass for a proof to the world.
      This shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. Conquer! That is enough. I will make easy to you the abstruction from the ill-ordered house in the Victorious City. Thou shalt thyself convey it with worship, o prophet, though thou likest it not. Thou shalt have danger & trouble. Ra-Hoor-Khu is with thee. Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with swords & with spears. 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 give you of their flesh to eat!
      Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after the Crowned Conquering Child.

      But not now.

      Ye shall see that hour, o blessèd Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire!
      Ye shall be sad thereof.
      Deem not too eagerly to catch the promises; fear not to undergo the curses. Ye, even ye, know not this meaning all.
      Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.
      Mercy let be off: damn them who pity! Kill and torture; spare not; be upon them!
      That stélé they shall call the Abomination of Desolation; count well its name, & it shall be to you as 718, The Abomination of Desolation.
      Why? Because of the fall of Because, that he is not there again.
      Set up my image in the East: thou shalt buy thee an image which I will show thee, especial, not unlike the one thou knowest. And it shall be suddenly easy for thee to do this.
      The other images group around me to support me: let all be worshipped, for they shall cluster to exalt me. I am the visible object of worship; the others are secret; for the Beast & his Bride are they: and for the winners of the Ordeal -X-. What is this? Thou shalt know.
      For perfume mix meal & honey & thick leavings of red wine: then oil of Abramelin and olive oil, and afterward soften & smooth down with rich fresh blood.
      The best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of a child, or dropping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of the priest or of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what.
      This burn: of this make cakes & eat unto me. This hath also another use; let it be laid before me, and kept thick with perfumes of your orison: it shall become full of beetles as it were and creeping things sacred unto me.
      These slay, naming your enemies; & they shall fall before you.
      Also these shall breed lust & power of lust in you at the eating thereof.
      Also ye shall be strong in war.
      Moreover, be they long kept, it is better; for they swell with my force. All before me.
      My altar is of open brass work: burn thereon in silver or gold!
      There cometh a rich man from the West who shall pour his gold upon thee.
      From gold forge steel!
      Be ready to fly or to smite!
      But your holy place shall be untouched throughout the centuries: though with fire and sword it be burnt down & shattered, yet an invisible house there standeth, and shall stand until the fall of the Great Equinox; when Hrumachis shall arise and the double-wanded one assume my throne and place. Another prophet shall arise, and bring fresh fever from the skies; another woman shall awake the lust & worship of the Snake; another soul of God and beast shall mingle in the globèd priest; another sacrifice shall stain the tomb; another king shall reign; and blessing no longer be poured To the Hawk-headed mystical Lord!
      The half of the word of Heru-ra-ha, called Hoor-pa-kraat and Ra-Hoor-Khut.
      Then said the prophet unto the God:
      I adore thee in this song
        I am the Lord of Thebes, and I
      The inspired forth-speaker of Mentu;
        For me unveils the veilèd sky,
      The self-slain Ankh-af-na-khonsu
        Whose words are truth. I invoke, I greet!
      Thy presence, O Ra-Hoor-Khuit!
      Unity uttermost showed!
        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 throne of Ra!
        Open the ways of the Khu!
      Lighten the ways of the Ka!
        The ways of the Khabs run through
      To stir me or still me!
        Aum! let it fill me!
      So that thy light is in me; & its red flame is as a sword in my hand to push thy order. There is a secret door that I shall make to establish thy way in all the quarters, these are the adorations, as thou hast written, as it is said:
      The light is mine; its rays. consume me: I have made a secret door Into the House of Ra
      and Tum,
        Of Khephra and of Ahathoor.
      I am thy Theban, O Mentu,
        The prophet Ankh-af-na-khonsu!
      By Bes-na-Maut my breast I beat.
        By wise Ta-Nech I weave my.
      Show thy star-splendour, O Nuit!
        Bid me within thine House to.
      O’ wingèd snake of light, Hadit!
        Abide with me, Ra-Hoor-Khuit!

      Unto each man and woman that thou meetest, were it but to dine or to drink at them, it is the Law to give. Then they shall chance to abide in this bliss or no; it is no odds. Do this quickly!
      But the work of the comment? That is easy; and Hadit burning in thy heart shall make swift and secure thy pen.
      Establish at thy Kaaba a clerk-house: all must be done well and with business way.
      The ordeals thou shalt oversee thyself, save only the blind ones. Refuse none, but thou shalt know & destroy the traitors. I am Ra-Hoor-Khuit; and I am powerful to protect my servant. Success is thy proof: argue not; convert not; talk not over much! Them that seek to entrap thee, to overthrow thee, them attack without pity or quarter; & destroy them utterly. Swift as a trodden serpent turn and strike! Be thou yet deadlier than he! Drag down their souls to awful torment: laugh at their fear: spit upon them!
      Let the Scarlet Woman beware! If pity and compassion and tenderness visit her heart; if she leave my work to toy with old sweetnesses; then shall my vengeance be known. I will slay me her child: I will alienate her heart: 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.
      But let her raise herself in pride! Let her follow me in my way! Let her work the work of wickedness! Let her kill her heart! Let her be loud and adulterous! Let her be covered with jewels, and rich garments, and let her be shameless before all men!
      Then will I lift her to pinnacles of power: then will I breed from her a child mightier than all the kings of the earth. I will fill her with joy: with my force shall she see & strike at the worship of Nu: she shall achieve Hadit.
      I am the warrior Lord of the Forties: the Eighties cower before me, & are abased. I will bring you to victory & joy: I will be at your arms in battle & ye shall delight to slay. Success is your proof; courage is your armour; go on, go on, in my strength; & ye shall turn not back for any!
      In these are mysteries that no Beast shall divine. Let him not seek to try: but one cometh after him, whence I say not, who shall discover the Key of it all. Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key also. And Abrahadabra. It shall be his child & that strangely. Let him not seek after this; for thereby alone can he fall from it.
      Now this mystery of the letters is done, and I want to go on to the holier place.
      I am in a secret fourfold word, the blasphemy against all gods of men.

      Curse them! Curse them! Curse them!

      With my Hawk’s head I peck at the eyes of Ödin as he hangs upside down upon the tree of knowledge.

      I flap my wings in the face of Mohammed & blind him.

      With my claws I tear out the flesh of the Indian and the Buddhist, Mongol and Din.
      Bahlasti! Ompehda! I spit on your crapulous creeds.
      Let ye inviolate be torn upon wheels: for her sake let all chaste women be utterly despised among you!
      Also for beauty’s sake and love’s!
      Despise also all cowards; professional soldiers who dare not fight, but play; all fools despise!
      But the keen and the proud, the royal and the lofty; ye are brothers!
      As brothers fight ye!
      There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.
      There is an end of the word of the God enthroned in Ra’s seat, lightening the girders of the soul.
      To Me do ye reverence! to me come ye through tribulation of ordeal, which is bliss.

      What about Kars?

    • Tyler Patch says:

      Tardi Grade A camel would never find itself in the Arctic, nor is that remotely close to what it is like for a Tardigrade in space. Your argument is invalid.

    • Spork Master says:


    • Eliteshoe3000 says:

      +Tardi Grade if you say “waterbears can live in space” that is wrong unless you give it more context; if you day “waterbears were able to live/survive a certain amount of time in space” then you’re right. The context of the video was saying they were able to survive that period of time so all in all you’re the only one wrong here
