"Instead, we are in an astral arms race."

Hey... if you can get that astral projection thing going, you won't need rockets!

Problem is... it seems rather unreliable: Pegasus doesn't always come when called.

Jeff Wells (a Canadian author) has a very interesting "para-political" website/blog (Rigorous Intuition) that has mentioned Jack Parsons more than once. If you haven't heard about it and want to check it out:

I truly believe that you and Jeff could have a lot to talk about. A lot.

I learned about Jack Parsons from a reporter who wanted to know about my father. I was, to put it mildly, totally shocked when he revealed what he had dug up!

Smith, not only doesn't that horse come when called, he likes to throw his riders.


He also throws lightning bolts. This is why the best plan to approach him is to offer golden apples and please the Graces who like to dance, sing, talk about history and work out mathematical formulas.


He doesn't do rescue jobs. If we can't keep ourselves out of trouble, that is our own fault.

"[Parsons] was chosen by Aleister Crowley to lead Agape Lodge, the Thelemic Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) in California ..."

Crowley was an old fraud who made an entire career out of duping people who didn't know any better (and others who should've.) I've passed some amusing hours with his writings. I've often thought that heading up a coven of [young, comely, female] acolytes would be fun... but I have a major problem: a complete and total inability to keep a straight face when I'm promulgating a line of bullcrap that someone actually seems to be buying. First I smile, then I giggle, then I laugh... and then it's all over.

"He and Ron Hubbard wanted to bring into the world a girl who would turn the Wheel of Fate..."

And El-Ron was another one who was stranger than strange.

This is fascinating Elaine. I followed a link from Wolcott to your site some many moons ago and have become a regular reader. You are truly an interesting person ("character" my wife would say) and I want to thank you for your time and effort. I am often astonished at the range of your interests and knowledge. I trust you and you're a regular part of my education and disenthrallment. I suppose it seems like shouting into the wind at times but please continue.

Not that you necessarily need any encouragement, but the issues of magic numbers and mythology and dark forces, etc. do not put me off in the least. I don't understand them but surely something more than "rogue primate " is at play in this messy world-best wishes, brian

I once told an old girlfriend that she should not read L. Ron Hubbard anymore because all he wanted was her money. She never spoke to me again.

The power of religion.

I once asked my beautiful Greek girlfriend in Germany if she truly thought "the workers" in (communist) Eastern Europe were free, and she never spoke to me again.

The power of ideology.

Elaine Meinel Supkis

Ideology is always brainless. This is the amusing side to humans.

Ron Hubbard and me: a bizarre tale with some strange twists over the years, google my former brother-in-law, Keith Henson's name! Or use Wikipedia.


As usual, it doesn't mention my name, I am the 'occult' person who is everywhere.
