Great food for thought by the associations your making there, thanks. It seems the story of the serpent in the garden meant to reveal to us the trade off. By plunging into duality we discover dynamic, and spin ourselves into charge and evolution. Seems that way to me anyways.

I couldn't agree more. Magical disciplines and there surrounding issues have been my focus of study for several years, and I feel fortunate to have been made to realize this key issue. In this way, I've very much enjoyed the works of someone like Dion Fortune, who makes the context of moral and spiritual development paramount in her outlook. For the record, Peter Carroll and the IOT lean a bit too far into a morally chilly zone for my taste in certain ways.
Frankly these issues can wipe the smile off of ones face like its never been wiped off before! So I really appreciate any solid well intentioned discourse I can get about it. Thankfully I've learned that here on the GHMB, is a community of good people, wanting to make the world a better place.
Looking forward to buying your book :), and reading your future posts.
