There’s this kid that moved into the house near my mom’s back home; he is constantly talking about some Aleister Crowley(spell check), and he’s really clingy.
is this guy someone who i should worry about or is he just trying to make new friends?
I’m polite and civil; but his obsession with “dark” things (judging by his possession) make me worrisome.
Aleister Crowley was the center of some pretty dark stuff in his time… I would avoid the man if you can.
Crowley was an occultist in England born in 1875. I don’t think his stuff is dangerous – just hot air.
Alister Crowley is probably one of the most famous occultists ever. He was misunderstood when he was alive and still misunderstood today. He would be considered a genius. His teachings are still praised and taught today. I don’t think you should be afraid of your neighbor.
Here is some good info on Crowley.
He believed himself to be the prophet of a new age, the Aeon of Horus, based upon a religious experience that he had in Egypt in 1904. By his account, a possibly non-corporeal being that called itself Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema. Thelema is a religious philosophy that was developed by the early 20th century British writer and ceremonial magician Aleister Crowley.
Crowley is basically a believer in the devil. you should really get away from the New neighbor. Especially if you are christian.
Yeah, check Wikipedia.
The kid most likely just likes AC a lot, but if that’s ALL he talks about, then tell him he has to broaden his conversation–just one subject gets too boring.
