    How about an acknowledgement that all magical traditions are merely a framework to play in, which many use to attain some form of enlightenment. There is no tradition that is simply an open box. Each come in a nice little starter kit of symbols which their followers play with to attain effects.

    If that offends you, you might want to examine the box you're in.

    Perhaps one's box is bigger than anothers, but there is never limitless potential or complete open-box-ness.

    There can be. It's typically called nirvana, enlightenment, moksha, or insanity. Your pick.

    Tell you what, try joining the Temple of Set and get back to me in about three years. (I can do this all day.)

    That the best you got? No details on the lack of symbolism present in the Temple order, or lack of specific ritualistic content in their practices? I'm shocked. :p

    Actually no we're not. I have made a claim that all magical traditions come with prescribed symbolism which is followed by most followers. You responded with "join my group! It's different!"

    So far you're the only one measuring anything here.

    Well, seeing as how I don't have a penis, obviously that person is going to be me. :D
