The Aeon of Horus began in 1904 when an infamous occultist named Aleister Crowley was on his honeymoon in Cairo, and his wife, known as W the Seer, received communication from a higher intelligence. For the next three days he received the threefold Book of the Law, Liber AL vel Legis, which contains the Law of Thelema. I'm sure you've heard the various tales of Crowley as a drug-crazed sex-maniac with no respect for anything, but I would caution you to read some of his books and find out for yourself, and even if you still dislike the man, he was but a vessel for the Law of Thelema, so do not discount it. http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Thebes/7479/thelema.htm There have been tomes written on The Book of the Law in the past, and I don't want to even try to write a detailed commentary on it. I shall simply highlight a few of the phrases that for me display a profound philosophy and the answers to many religious problems, and I shall then leave you to do your own research. The Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) in my eyes is the true custodian of the Law, and they have much more information, and the original text, on their web site at OTO USGL http://oto-usa.org/ The religion known as Thelema was founded in 1904 by the English poet and mystic Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947), who is regarded as its prophet. Those who follow the path of Thelema are called Thelemites. Thelema emphasizes individualism, and the uniqueness of each person's Will. As a result, it is very difficult to make blanket statements about its nature or (still more so) the natures of its adherents. Even the label "religion" fits Thelema awkwardly in some contexts — it is in other senses a philosophy and a way of life, while also overlapping with the set of practices and symbols commonly called "Magick".
