Although this is a great work on the Typhonian/Draconian cult tradition that Kenneth Grant believes came out of Africa and Egypt, he understands shakti so extroverted, that it is somewhat a misapplication of it. Shakti, the force or power used when opening the chakras, is found within an individual's self. The consciousness of an individual is Shiva (the power welder), regardless whether the practitioner is male or female physically. The force or power within the person, is Shakti, whether they are male or female also. Kenneth Grant projects his Shakti outside himself into an 'other' female individual. This is the mishap since he should have focused on his shakti inside himself rather than seeing it as within a different person. This might be the fault of why Aleister Crowley never uttered the Word of Aeon since he projected (Jungian terminology) his Shakti into the ideal Scarlet Women he was trying to find all his life. His Scarlet Women should have been in his own organism.
