My O.T.O.A. 1987-1991

My Own O.T.O.A.

These are excerpts of letters from Michael Paul Bertiaux relating to my charters and the bishopric of the late William Wallace Webb. The information herein is of a purely administrative nature and does not fall under privacy restrictions.
I have omitted all passages and letters dealing with the teachings (e.g. on the XI°) and the history of the O.T.O.A. and the very detailed history of the Choronzon Club, La Couleuvre Noire, Memphis-Misraim, Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua, the French Gnostics like Jean Bricaud, Jules Doinel, Robert Ambelain et. al. and any related matters e.g. concerning Stefan Hoeller and other current gnostics and magicians.
Also omitted are Bertiaux' remarks about William Bernard Crow's apostolic succession of Aleister Crowley, the 'Caliphate' (William Breeze's consecration by Jack B. Hogg jr.), Maggie Ingalls (Nema's Ma'at Aeon), and Kenneth Grant's Typhonian O.T.O..

Out of approximately 50 letters I have taken only a small handful and partly reproduced them for research purposes.
The correspondence ended in 1991 and was never to be resumed again.

My archive contains a large correspondence with Manuel Cabrera Lamparter, the archive of the O.T.O.A. of the countries of the former Yugoslavia, and several boxes of O.T.O.A. magazines and interna.
Of course, I am also familiar with current O.T.O.A. material.

The papers below are legally invalid because Bertiaux has stated in his letter dated 1991-04-22 that my rights are "valid until he shall inform me of his intention to do otherwise". I never resigned. I never stepped back. I never intended to do so.

It is rumoured that the 'Caliphate' is to blame for the new opinion of Bertiaux. At that time, a so-called O.T.O. Assistant Secretary Internet Affairs had been very much trying to ingratiate with me (and many others) in order to dig out useful information regarding me, the O.T.O.A. and other matters (exchange of material and pompous charters). The two reproduced legally invalid removal-letters below show very similar text passages that I have provided the O.T.O. Assistant Secretary Internet Affairs with at a time when he played friend with me on a daily basis, But his motives were clearly obvious to me at the time.

  • Heinrich Tranker Baphomet Rosycross Regarding Aleister Crowley's antidemocratic, racist and misanthropic writings, followers point out: "The reason [...] aspects of Thelema are omitted [in public discussion] indicates the actual problem with presenting Thelema as a religion and attempting to get Thelema sanctioned by the government or approved by the public: Thelema is ultimately in contrast to and transgressive of normative society. Thelema rejects the morals and values of normative society and acts to transgress and violate these norms. From the inclusion of intoxicants in ritual, to the positive view of sexuality, which frequently is seen as promoting promiscuity, to the pro–authoritarian and Nietzschian aspects of Thelema, normative society has much to reject in Thelema and conversely, Thelema encourages its adherents to reject most aspects of normative society.".
