Were discussing the myth of Persephone, this dude said something wise.

Taking something at face value rather than turning it into an elaborate metaphor is kind of antithetical to mysticism and esotericism. Most of the occult is concerned with finding the hidden allegories behind myths and, if one can't be found, inventing one that sounds plausible.
Look at the plethora of differences in how a Rosicrucian interprets the Bible compared to an evangelical, fundamentalist Christian, for instance.
Which isn't to say that either direction is right. I just mean, yeah, that's kind of the audience a Discord server centered around Thelema is going to attract.
Personally, I don't think the original intent matters at all. I'm far more interested in the mystical traditions developed out of it. Even if the foundation is in a mistake, a lot of truth can be poured out through the process of mysticism. In that sense, any text can become mystical with enough time and devotion.

Exactly. This is why there is much value in numerologically reading a person’s license plate or birthday. Seemingly random numbers. Produce extended truth structures when utilized in ratio’d systems imbued with rich and deep significance and meaning. And the prerequisite to already have a very perceptive mind with strong rational deductive and inductive powers only fortifies this “magical” effect.
