The Ape of Thoth

I’ve just tried The Ape of Thoth.

“The ‘Ape of Thoth’ (APE for short) is a general-purpose text search engine whose database consists of Thelemic Holy Books and other important verse-based works by Aleister Crowley.”

“One of the methods of divination frequently practiced by Crowley is called bibliomancy. The basic idea is to draw a word at random from a book and to derive divinatory meaning from the word selected. The APE can aid in the process of bibliomancy by randomly selecting one word from a random passage taken from one or more of the available texts.”

I tried it to see if I could get a message from Loki.
I got:

“Now I am with thee; I will never leave thy being.”
–Liber Cordis Cincti Serpente, I:26

That is a very clear message, directed at my fears that Loki will loose interest in me and abandon me.

    That is really interesting. I got this: Yet I give more than Bacchus and Apollo; my gifts exceed the olive and the horse

    You see the result as only the one highlighted word or the whole sentence?
    I tried 4x… and got: the, of, and, there …. not much of a message
