|(BTW, what ever came of your investigations into the IX degree, or
|whatever it was?)

That will be an ongoing approach and withdraw from the sex magick materials
held valuable enough to prevent from them being published on the Internet,
but also other mystical sects, such as the Indian and Chinese.  I read some
bit of King's text and began a review, and the writings on the Secret of the
VII Degree (OTO) was quite priaptic, solar- and phallus-centered right down
the line.  I do not remember seeing mention of inclusivity and while the
text was sometimes quite lovely to read, I'm not sure what lasting value
was to be found there.  Some of it is quite new to my eyes, a great deal of
it rather conservative and orthodox, I'm afraid.

The VIII Degree materials I began but have not completed, and will take
it up again later should the mood strike.  It is rather dry to my taste,
though I can imagine excellent applications of its principles.  It does
contain some very useful practices (not always sexual), but nothing I
found earthshaking or mindblowing.  I think that to comprehend its
value I would need contemplate the entire symbol/meme-set of the degrees,
or see deeply into any one ritual (as that Gnostic rite which is said to
contain them all -- the Mass) sufficiently so as to realize the relation
amongst them and their sequential value.
