OK please expand on it, since I’d like very much to hear this viewpoint Yes I employ things from RHP because I’m not entirely familiar (most probably) with a lot of LHP,
I’d answer this with this:
The making of alchemists’ philosophical stone should make one eternally safe,
It is a concept from RHP or LHP? I’m telling about the erasing of the possibility of anything evil happening to you, is it possible or not and how to achieve it?
When it comes to evil yes I believe there is such thing as evil, I think there is even platonic idea of evil (though Plato himself disagreed with this).
The goddess Nuit is a bitch of dubious reputation, if you are going to have intercourse with her, you better put a condom on your snake of light, so you won’t have undesired magickal children with her.
These ‘anti-worlds’ are descriptions from JCI
religion. Just because he wrote about it doesn’t mean he’s endorsing.
It just seems necessary to write about, because even if the structure of the Qliphoth wasn’t “conceived” by Jews (ie its Greek or Egyptian with JCI superimposed), the intellectual history of it begins with Jews, because there’s no record before.
And if you read this traditional JCI interpretation, you’ll still have nuance which is congruent with what many LHP believe.
Like how working through the Qliphoth is more intrinsic self-deification, and when you consider the “tree of knowledge” in the garden of Eden to be a euphemism for the Qliphoth, you get some interesting nuance.
Even if you believe the Qliphoth came first- you can still see some truth underneath the JCI percolating.
Interesting note: though not the popular view, there is one traditional interpretation of the Qliphoth and Sephiroth being created at the same time.
These are claims. I have looked into this and there is no evidence of the Qliphoth or the Qabalah being inspired by Greek or Egyptian magic. What I know that Jews did learn from the Greeks is some aspects of the grimoire traditions such as the Goetia, certain aspects of high magic (Theurgy), and the Kabbalah itself is related to Pythagorean numerology and the association of perfection with the number 10. They obviously demonized many Gods and Daemons, creating a negative connotation with the word demon that never existed before.
The way I see it, people like to claim the Qliphoth or the Kabbalah are inspired by Egyptian or Greek currents of magic because they find it easier to stick to a paradigm that is well known, all well and good, but don’t sell people bullshit and expect them to swallow it.
If there is a people the Jews might have learned from regarding their cosmogony, they would be either the Phoenicians or the Chaldeans (maybe Babylonians).
