As Crowley pulled more legs than anyone I guess his followers
are subject to the same tendency - only too many of them seem to
think it's for real ... :- His best work was ~The Book of Thoth~.

Consider it on the scale of a single Tree of Life as a
function of Tiphareth where Tiphareth = Soul/Self in a Jungian
sense. It is the link between the lower and the higher levels
however we look at it.

Who took it all the way to the point of complete lunacy ...

It also produces a great deal of material that can only have
come from the rear end of the bull .... I know - I used to talk
it and even for a while taught it. The real thing is better.

Not that it contains it. It *is* it. Likewise from Yetzirah to
Briah and Briah to Atziluth. Sounds like you need my "Keys to
Kabbalah" in hardcopy privately printed by me. This has the
necessary diagrams to follow the teaching.

Shame poor dears! But the teaching explicitly teaches *four
worlds.* "Pathworking" can get anyone believing what they want
to hear all too easily and is in Yetziratic. To the
uninitiated in both senses of the term Briah is both much too
hard work and too frightening. Ignoring the higher worlds
however is simply playing games with the "ancient wisdom."

IMNVHO Qabalists should be issued with T-shirts reading "Let's
create doubtful karma together!"

And nowhere else except in the fantasy worlds of those mentioned
