XVI - The Tower

From Aleister Crowley's Book of Thoth:

"In its simplest interpretation it refers to the manifestation of cosmic energy in its grossest form. The picture shows the destruction of existing material by fire. It may be taken as the preface to Atu XX, the Last Judgment, i.e., the Coming of a New Aeon... At the bottom... is shown the destruction of the old-esatablished Aeon by lightning, flames, engines of war."
