"The greatest, like Rembrandt, paint a gallant, a hag, and a carcass with equal passion and rapture; they love the truth as it is.  They do not admit that anything can be ugly or evil; its existence justifies itself.  This is because they know themselves to be part of an harmonious unity; to disdain any item of it would be to blaspheme the whole.  The Thelemite is able to revel in any experience soever; in each he recognizes the tokens of ultimate Truth.  It is surely obvious, even intellectually, that all phenomena are interdependent, and therefore involve each other."
