    Oh, Good Lord! The precious "occult" spellings, lack of originality, or insight make this trying reading. P-Orridge is an occult popularizer and a bad one. While I do admire much of the musical output of P-Orridge and the very talented musicians with whom he performed, the lukewarm leftovers from Crowley, Scriabin, Spare, Parsons, etc. can still be found piping hot in primary sources.

    There's a lot of excellent material in this thick tome. Genesis' own words are inspired and inspirational. I don't agree with him on everything (I don't buy into his definition of time, for instance) and the affected spelling can grate after a while, but it's well worth reading, absorbing and putting into practice. It only loses a star because some of the supporting material by other writers makes for very dry reading and is occasionally incoherent or simply loopy. The good far outweighs the bad There's a lot of excellent material in this thick tome. Genesis' own words are inspired and inspirational.

It only loses a star because some of the supporting material by other writers makes for very dry reading and is occasionally incoherent or simply loopy. The good far outweighs the bad, however. Genesis is a very impassioned writer, who isn't afraid to slaughter sacred cows. Breaks more than a few shackles.

    I definitely recommend that anyone interested in shifting their perspectives to check this book out. This is way more than I expected it to be. It's a teaching on urban shamanism, DIY magick, revolution, evolution, and life from one of the most innovative artists of our time.

    Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth was an organization founded in 1981 that lasted for ten years, it started as an extension for the Industrial band Psychic TV, but later morphed into an international artistic collective to introduce the practice of magick in everyday life.

The Temple dedicated itself to guiltless self-expression, demystifying religious thought, destabilizing social constraints, and accomplishing one's goals to reach their full potential and individuality through discipline and sharing those experiences with others. Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth covered a concise synthesis of left and right hand path magick, and within this grimoire we learn about topics such as Alchemy, the William S. Burroughs cut-up method, The Temple's relation to The Process Church of The Final Judgment, and the occult techniques of Austin Osman Spare and Aleister Crowley. This edition of Thee Psychick Bible released by Feral House is an expanded and revised version of Thee Psychick Bible that was released in 1994, which ran a measly 184 pages. This edition put out by Feral House sports a robust 450 pages, it is a collection of all of the Temple's literature, as well as new writings from Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, the lead singer of Psychic TV, which was edited by Jason Louv, an author and the editor in chief of UltraCulture.org. While I cannot speak on the 1994 version, the Feral House version also expounds on the "positive gender" Pandrogyne , includes an addendum reading list with other texts of worthy interest, its connection to The Process Church, and the reasoning for The Temple's ultimate demise. Thee Psychick Bible is an illuminating text for anyone who may or may not believe in magick, and at least to this millennial, T.O.P.Y will truly live on within the hearts of its original members. Its influence can be seen through certain new age ideals and Chaos Magick theory. Aleister Crowley once explained in the Aeon of Horus that civilization would undergo a mutation in human consciousness, reflecting a fundamental dynamic within its next evolutionary step. I can see that unfolding with the millennial generation with their concepts of non-gender binaries, shaking social conformities, their dismantling of religious thought, trans humanism, and the spread of "occulture" literature in the digital age. It makes me anxious and intrigued thinking about its many outcomes taking place in the future, as well as the present.

    Not really a cover-to-cover read. It's a beautiful publication, however, and there are some interesting essays and passages on the occult and modern Satanism. A lot of puerile rambling, also, and thee spellings ov words in an affected way as such quickly accelerates from curious to irritating. I'm kindly disposed towards Genesis P. Orridge nonetheless (not least my Psychic TV records). Not really a cover-to-cover read.

    TOWARDS THEE INFINITE BEAT One of my most favorite books. Recommended for any Psychic TV fan, so much more will make sense. Id also believe this book could be interesting to a lot of other readers, Please don't think ov this book as a book on the band. Yes there is plenty ov information on the band but it really touches base on THEE TEMPLE OV PSYCHIC YOUTH in a way you could say the point of the band.

I enjoyed reading this book a lot, and found the various texts to be informative and useful as it applies to my own magical work, especially as applied to the cut-up methodology and its application to magical work. It was also fascinating to learn more about the history of TOPY, albeit through a filtered perspective. I also enjoyed the essays on pandrogeny. I consider this a historical text that any magician, particularly those in chaos magic, might want to pick up. It demonstrates as well some of the issues that can arise in any magical organization.

    I still don't know what to think about Genesis P-Orridge. I got introduced to Psychic TV and the whole TOPY thing when I was about 14, so at the time I thought it was super cool. But over the years I read a lot of bad things about him, especially from his former Psychic TV band mates. One of which who supposedly created most of the music and claims to have received no credit or money. But this book wasn't really about PTV, but about the belief systems of TOPY. It had a whole lot of clever jargon I still don't know what to think about Genesis P-Orridge.

    This is the paperback edition of Thee Psychick Bible. unsure why its credited as written by Jason Louv as the hardback edition is written allegedly by genesis p orridge. The book is a series of essays and occult psychobabble and those looking for enlightenment will be disappointed and out of pocket. its essentially a book that will only be of interest to the dwindling number of fans of the obscure music band PSYCHIC TV.

La Biblia Psíquika es Genesis, que a su vez es la Biblia Psíquika. Y la Biblia Psíquika es un grito contra una norma que surge del miedo a la muerte, un susurro que rompe esa casa que nos han construido sin preguntarnos y nos deja en medio de un jardín que no tiene nombre ni lo espera. Es una búsqueda de todos los Yoes que habitan el YO (SELF) a través del deseo. Es la occulttura que siembra un futuro hecho por y para nosotres, la magia a través de un orgasmo que nos funde con nuestros deseos más velados. Es la potencia anárquica al mismo tiempo constructora y destructora que emana de una manada de lobos que no volverán a ser solitarios. Una destrucción de los géneros. Es un método de des-programación que empieza con una certeza, la de la muerte, y con una pregunta: ¿qué quieres hacer con tu vida? Y para ser todo ello, es en primer y último lugar el grito del viejo proverbio TOPI: «Nada por debajo de una guerra total»." Clara Fernández de Lis

    felt very conversational, like an elder talking on their own spiritual process, Genesis does waft on for a bit but its almost part of the charm, this however does mean that this book took forever for me to read as at times eye felt it lacked clear direction. Some sweet anecdotes, references and inspiration to use their ideas for a future canon succeeding the 1960-1990s cultural sphere **maybe could have done with more editing in the writing process

    I’m not really sure where to begin. There were parts that I could see were inspired, parts that allowed me to contemplate a different perspective, and parts that I found to be fascinating— but this book is in desperate need of an editor, is highly repetitive, and the “occult” spelling (for the lack of a better term) is so hard to get through, not to mention it is inconsistent.
