The Teleological Trap of the Mind

I’ve long been a fan of Alan Watts, and I recently picked up a copy of Become What You Are, which is very enjoyable. I would encourage people to read Watts if they get a chance (and if you can, purchase one of his books from a real, honest-to-goodness bookstore, preferably a small, local bookshop).                                                                                                                                                
Below is an excerpt from one of the chapters that I very much enjoyed and found to resonate with AL I:44 and the concept of the “lust of result.” Underneath this quote, I briefly relate this idea to some passages in Crowley’s writings.
