"We need more explosions on the soundtrack! More musical stabs! Spooooooooky!" Also, I heard Crowley thought Hubbard was scamming Jack Parsons the whole time. Of course he was probably just worried Hubbard would steal his mark.

Crowley was so smart he wrote the possibility of a "rich man from the West" INTO the Book of the Law, before Parsons was even born. Hubbard never even thought that, proving that Crowley was the superior one.

I'm currently reading the Equinox. Once you sidle through the rituals, Crowley's articles on drug experimentation and travelogues are actually fantastic reading. Just stay out of his poetry, good Lord, it's bad. "Konx Om Pax" is one of the best pre-Beat counterculture texts written, period.

Oh, and if nothing else, his book reviews of his occult enemies are some of the most hilarious things ever written. Crowley was a lot of things, but Hubbard he wasn't. He actually did have ethics and a very good sense of humor.

I really like how this ties Jack Parsons to all kinds of bullshit, like George Bush Sr. and Brittany Spears. I'm surprised that they didn't work Tesla in there somehow.

Whoa, you have THE Equinox? Like, all of them?

cognitivedissonance
I have a .pdf of the complete set, and a hardcover of "Gems From The Equinox" and the Blue Equinox. A full set is usually between 0 and 00.

memedumpster
I know, hence my "whoa!"

Even "Gems" is pricey. My prize find was a 1960s era hardcover of Liber 777 with dust jacket at a used bookstore in Olympia for , and a copy of Liber ABA Book 4 from the Kennedy Administration at Powell's for 0. As soon as I can afford an Equinox set, I'll spring for it on investment alone, it's only going to get pricier. (Occult/esoteric book collecting is sorta my thing.)

I read Crowley's book on yoga ages ago and found him to be quite smart. However, I don't think he was above a con of someone he found to be insufferable or gullible.

They spelled "Babylon" wrong.


Also, why do all these conspiracy theories always come back to a forgettable one term president from the early nineties?
cognitivedissonance
No, they spelled Babalon correctly.

He's ironically enough closest to C.S. Lewis is personality and degree of grift. Lewis was wildly disingenuous about his own Christianity, but saw a market to make some money on top of his academic stipend by abusing the hopes of simpletons. The OTO, which was the organization founded to milk millionaires like Parsons, is completely distinct from the A.:A.:, which expressly forbids financial transactions between members. Crowley felt there was no hypocrisy, and freely catered the OTO to American tastes for maximum profit.
